Burning of Christian churches in Israel justified, far-Right Jewish leader says

HT to Steve Lumbley (Apostasy Watch) The leader of a far-Right Israeli group has risked arrest by apparently voicing support for arson attacks on Christian churches amid an official crackdown on Jewish extremism. Benzi Gopstein, the outspoken head of Lehava – which has drawn notoriety for its violent assaults on Jewish-Arab assimilation – made the […]

30 AD – 70 AD: “The Crimson Thread Remained Crimson”

Fascinating message from Adam at Pursuing Truth. Quote, In about 30 AD, Jesus said something to the scribes, Pharisees, and people of Jerusalem which must have been earth-shattering to His audience at the time: “See! Your house is left to you desolate” (Matthew 23:38).  This mirrors what happened in the days of Jeremiah: “I have […]

Jerome, Augustine, and the Fall of Rome: An Object Lesson for American Christians

An excellent message from Kim Riddlebarger. I encourage you to follow the link at the end of the intro…  When an alien spaceship destroyed the White House in the 1993 science fiction film Independence Day, I’m told that pre-9/11 moviegoers were not horrified at the possibility and that some even cheered (perhaps because they were […]

Do You Consider Yourself A Christian?

Excellent message at ForTheLoveOfHisTruth. Below you can read the introduction but I hope you will take a few minutes and click on the link and read the entire message, and also listen to the wonderful audio sermon included in the post. quote, There are professing believers on social media that say they refuse to be […]

Who is the Israel of God in Galatians 6:16?

As we previously looked at the topic ‘Who is Israel’ earlier, I thought this teaching from John at Aletheuo might be of interest to someone. quote, 1 ”I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that […]

Christmas 2012: The Flowering of Middle Eastern Christianity: Facts & Data

Below you’ll find some interesting updated facts and data concerning Christianity and Christians in the Middle East Quote, There are more Middle Eastern Christians than ever before….In fact, despite all the hype about the rise of Islam in Europe, Muslims in that continent have on the whole much less potential influence than Christians in the […]

A Christian Terrorist in Norway?

Ligonier Ministries, Last Friday (July 22, 2011), a bomb went off in Oslo killing eight people and injuring many more. Soon afterward, a gunman went on a shooting spree at an island youth camp in Norway, killing 68 people. The gunman was arrested and later claimed responsibility for both attacks. When interviewed by the police, […]

Contrasts: Judaism and Christianity

Interesting video, Apparently the Jewish religion is not about God as much as it is about Jewish people according to this Rabbi that I watched on a cable program called “Judaism 101”. I wanted to comment on some of what he was talking about from a Christian perspective.

Post Temple Judaism and Christianity: “The Temple of Messiah”

Messianic Good News has posted a wonderful teaching by Peter Cohen, “The second destruction of Jerusalem in 70 C.E., along with the loss of the second temple, marks a watershed in Jewish history, even if not everyone saw it that way at the time … at this point Jews and the nascent Christians each began […]

Founding Fathers were Antichrists says New Film

Its no secret, my thoughts on politicians using Christianity (and in doing so, using Christ) as some type of personal tool by which to garner votes. It totally disgusts me. They are a “blight” upon the Church and as far as the Gospel is concerned, more times then not, nothing more then enemy’s of the […]


This is a very good but sobering excerpt from A.W. Pink’s, Studies on Saving Faith There are those who have a faith which is so like that which is saving as they themselves may take it to be the very same, and others too may deem it sufficient, yea, even others who have the spirit […]

Anne Rice has renounced Christianity

After hearing about author Anne Rice’s Facebook post yesterday, and reading the subsequent reactions which followed by a number of Christian bloggers, I made up my mind not to post about it. But Truth Matters has posted an excerpt today from an interesting commentary on the subject which frankly ‘reads’ more like it comes from […]

The Faith-Based Militia: When is Terrorism ‘Christian’?

Excellent article which tackles an important subject. The arrest of the Michigan-based Hutaree Militia has drawn worldwide attention and in so doing, surfaced one of the knottiest issues we face as a culture to which religious freedom and free speech are so central: How do we think about and describe religiously motivated violence? See, The […]

Christian Creeds

Something I read which gave me pause… “…the earliest Christian creed was, “Jesus is Lord.” As time progressed, this profession became insufficient for one Christian to accept and recognize another as a brother or sister in Christ.”  (Alan Knox, from Development of creeds and confessions)

The Vulnerable Church

Grace to You “This I will say that whatever darkness there may be in a man’s understanding, unless he feels and behaves as a sinner, justly condemned for breaking a righteous law…that is, unless you see in him penitence and brokenness…and unless he expects salvation of mere grace…that is he seems himself as a sinner […]

“God give us back the real thing..”

Do not believe that the common Christianity of the present age will carry anybody to heaven. It is a counterfeit and a sham. It does not make men to differ from their fellows, it pretends to faith and has none, talks about love and does not show it, brags of truth and evaporates it into […]

Definition of ‘Christian’ – The Devil’s Dictionary

This left me pondering.. I dreamed I stood upon a hill, and, lo! The godly multitudes walked to and fro Beneath, in Sabbath garments fitly clad, With pious mien, appropriately sad, While all the church bells made a solemn din— A fire-alarm to those who lived in sin. Then saw I gazing thoughtfully below, With […]

Who is a Christian

Youtube’s Pastor George asks an important question, It seems like the vogue is to say who is and who is not a Christian. What are your parameters? When does a person who says they are a Christian not meet up to the standard? You can read the comments left under the clip here, and also […]

Evangelical church opens doors fully to gays

DENVER – The auditorium lights turned low, the service begins with the familiar rhythms of church: children singing, hugs and handshakes of greeting, a plea for donations to fix the boiler. Then the 55-year-old pastor with spiked gray hair and blue jeans launches into his weekly welcome, a poem-like litany that includes the line “queer […]

From the Archives: Who is my Brother?

There continues to be confusion within the body of Christ concerning just who our brethren–our brothers and sisters are. In light of a recent post, I dug this excellent message out of the archives which answers the question, “Who is my Brother?” Christian Zionists regularly assert their brotherhood and solidarity with ethnic Jews (being descendants […]

American Christianity

“Yes, we ARE a Christian nation, and it has served us well. We are an exceptional Christian nation.” (Wall Builders) ” We are not a secular country. Now how can you say all of your rights as an American come from your creator and then pretend that you’re a secular society? We’re not.” (Newt Gingrich) […]

Let us all say “om”

Interesting article at Newsweek, We Are All Hindus Now. What was interesting is not the diversity of beliefs today but the statistic which states that according to a 2008 survey 76 percent of Americans, continued to identify themselves as Christians. I ask you–how can that be? While I don’t call into question that 3 quarters […]

What IS Christianity?

The answer to that question should be easily answered by all Christians, wouldn’t you think? But its not always the case. Today, particularly in the US, if the question is asked among a group professing to be Christians, its not surprising to hear any number of definitions. Many of them quite complicated.. Most if not […]
