Jewish Extremists Prompt Culture War In Israel

Activist extremists or/and religious extremists are nothing new. But it sure seems like today’s world has more then usual.  JERUSALEM — If they hadn’t been stirred already by the female soldier who was called a “slut” on a public bus, or the 8-year-old girl spit on by neighbors on the way to school, the sight […]

The New Definition of Revival in America

If this is now the definition of a true God-sent revival then there’s no denying it, I’m antiquated. Dr. Alex McFarland, apologetics author and religion and culture expert, is launching a new initiative called Project 2026 to restore Christian principles to America. The 15-year project will engage Christians and churches across the U.S. to pray […]

‘GrinchAlert’ Controversy

Someone explain to me the Christian/biblical purpose of a ‘grinch alert’. How do the actions of this pastor (and others) benefit the gospel or the church? quote.. A Dallas church tired of the political correctness surrounding Christmas has launched a website to report “naughty” businesses that fail to acknowledge the religious meaning of the holiday. […]

“Yawn” – another group, another manifesto

A particular segment of American society must spend a lot of time sitting around coming up with totally useless ‘declarations, documents, and manifestos’. Someone at another blog called it a case of self-aggrandizement, The act or practice of enhancing or exaggerating one’s own importance, power, or reputation. I agree. The newest document: The Mount Vernon […]

The Dangers of Cobelligerence

Cobelligerence: Co-belligerence, strictly speaking, is waging a war in cooperation with another against a common enemy without a formal alliance. The term co-belligerence indicates remoteness and differences between the co-belligerent parties although jointly pursuing a common objective. In Christianity, it refers to an alliance between denominations, which are normally opposed on doctrinal grounds, for a […]

But be warned, you may find they offend you: Lord Save Us From Your Followers – New Trailer – […]

Opposition to Health-Care Reform Revives Christian Right

The Christian right, facing questions before the presidential election about its continuing potency as a force for cultural and political change, has found new life with Barack Obama in office, particularly around health care.

Is Obama Really the Problem?

This was mailed out by Andrew Strom today.. IS OBAMA REALLY the PROBLEM? Years ago a friend of mine, Robert Holmes, saw a vision of Christians leaving the Harvest field to go and join in with a “Civil War”. They were leaving their primary mission to go and make war against their own countrymen. What […]

Leaders of the antiabortion movement are cringing at Randall Terry’s sudden return

This is an interesting article which appeared in Wednesday’s Washington Post. Randall Terry Wants to Lead Rebirth of Antiabortion Fight Leaders of the antiabortion movement are cringing at Terry’s sudden return. They say his incendiary rhetoric and showy tactics turn off ordinary Americans and reflect Terry’s struggle to regain his glory years. Randall Terry has […]

Shining the Spot-Light on… Randall Terry

I stand firmly in the anti-abortion camp, but I also stand just as firmly against those like Randall Terry. He is a spreader of hate and a fear-monger; and neither hate, fear, or Randall Terry [or those like him] does the cause against abortion any good whatsoever: especially when it comes to reaching the average […]

Accused Abortion Doctor Killer Claims More Violence Is Planned

Sigh… Foxnews WICHITA, Kan.  —  A man charged in the shooting death of a Kansas abortion provider claims more violence is possible. Scott Roeder called The Associated Press on Sunday from the Sedgwick County jail where he’s being held on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the death of Dr. George Tiller. Roeder […]

Lou Engle, The Call, Martyrdom, & The NAR

In light of the recent story concerning the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller, I found this article on Lou Engle (and The Call) interesting. Though I may not agree with all the author writes, the information concerning Engle makes it worth reading. There are also a number of video clips worth watching and embedded […]

Update: Suspect supported killing abortion providers, friends say

Both Brian and Gary brought up (in the other thread) the possibility this guy might be associated with abortionist organizations AND have claimed to be a Christian; and the possible consequences which could arise if so. After reading this below, it may be the case. Either way, many non-Christians (and the media) will latch on […]

Group Plans to Ruin Notre Dame Commencement

What can I say but this is so wrong, wrong, wrong. And please, if you comment don’t turn this into a pro or anti abortion issue. In previous threads on the topic I’ve made myself very clear about my beliefs, based on the bibles teachings concerning the sanctity of life and abortion, but in the […]

Anti-Muslim Immigration Video Spreads Fear, Distorts Truth

In a recent post this disgusting video was mentioned, (Newest Weapon in the Culture Wars). Since then I’ve read a couple very good p0sts at imonk which addresses the issue of (and fall-out from) this fear-mongering video among Christians: See, Who Will Dominate the Culture? and What’s The Evangelism Problem, And, Does the Gospel Change […]

Christianity verses Conservatism

Is there a difference between the two, Christianity and what is known in the US as Conservatism, or in many circles as the Political Religious-Right? An excellent question, one every Christian who adds the tag conservative to a description of who they are, should ask themselves is: “Are they one and the same?” Just some […]

Newest Weapon in the Culture Wars

HELP! “I’s can take no more!” Has madness overtaken those Christians engaged in the culture wars? Are we to re-produce, have children (which are a GIFT from God Almighty) just so we can fill up the ranks in the culture army? Good grief folks… We have sunk beyond loooow and have lost all perception of […]

THE MISS CALIFORNIA CONTROVERSY

Since this whole debacle came to light and hit the Internet, especially the blogosphere, I just plain didn’t have any desire to post about it, LOL. I mean, what was the controversy? A young contestant, Miss California believes (rightly) marriage should be between a man and woman and said so, and predictably, one of the […]

Down the Rabbit Hole: Barna, America’s “Faith Tribes” Can Restore Nation

And people have asked me why I’ve never given much credibility to the Barna Group polls concerning Christianity… This is a good one–good in good only for a laugh. Barna is getting ready to release a new book, “The Seven Faith Tribes”, in which he has written its time for the 7 major faith ‘tribes’ […]

Dutch Sheets, the USAR, 7 Mountains, & Pride and Deception

This may interest you. I received a letter this evening from the Dutch Sheets group, once known as the USAA (United States Apostolic Alliance) which now goes by the USAR (United States Alliance for Reformation), concerning their recent conference. Two things struck me while reading it–one being the heavy leaning toward the 7 Mountains of […]

Boycotts and Bans, “Spitting in the wind”

Did you know there is a website which tells you who or what to boycott or ban? Yep, there sure is: united boycott.org. I was thinking the last few days of the times we live in, a time in which boycotts, bans, protests, and any term which ends in an ‘ism’ are the rage. Lets […]

The Evangelical Demise?

Last evening I came upon two very interesting articles and want to pass them on. I think you may find them both well-worth the read. The first link is to a book reviewed by Trevin Wax at Kingdom People blog The book, The Fall of the Evangelical Nation: The Surprising Crisis Inside the Church by […]
