Effectiveness vs. Obedience: How or Why Christians Should ‘Boycott’

Conservative Catholics and Protestants have recently advocated boycotting Disney, Google, J.C. Penny, Lowes, and Starbucks, among other companies because of the actions these entities have taken on socio-political issues. As a result, debate has arisen over whether or not boycotts are “effective” and whether or not Christians should engage in them to influence political and socio-economicRead moreRead more

The Boy Scouts Should Have Seen It Coming: The Gay Agenda Certainly Did

Sixty percent of the 1,400 voting members of the Boy Scouts voted to allow openly gay members, but not leaders yesterday, in a predictable change to the 103 year-old civic organization. What are the possible outcomes? Litagation? Most likely. Defections? Definitely. The response by faith groups who are the most vested with the Scouts-the Catholic Church,Read moreRead more

Persecuted Arabic Christians to Muslims, ISIS: Jesus Alone Heals, Brings Hope

A powerful letter translated by an Egyptian Christian from the People of the Cross to ISIS delivers a powerful, truthful message to everyone who misunderstands and does not know Jesus Christ or what real Christianity is.

Nancy Pelosi’s Perversion of Piety: “Baby Jesus was a Refugee”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s recent attempts at Biblical proof-texting clearly evidences that she, like many politicians, is a pawn being used in a scheme much larger than American politics. Pelosi’s bizarre political statements are not new. But referencing Biblical terminology is. She’s been in office for 27 years, but only in the last tenRead moreRead more

Good News, Fellowship of ‘Differents’ In the Local Church

Good news exists in Christian communities ministering to gay communities. New Testament professor Scot McKnight highlights an approach I’ve experienced in every community I lived in both in America and abroad. In A Fellowship of Differents, McKnight addresses how Christians biblically address “Sexual Bodies in a Church.” As is the case with most theologians, McKnightRead moreRead more

Gone Girls: Sewn up and Spit Out, 9 Year-old Girl Commodities

Girls between ages 1-9 are kidnapped, sold, and bought at slave bazaars then married and remarried throughout Islamic-controlled areas. While ISIS may be orchestrating most of the child sex trafficking and condones institutionalized violence against women as a “righteous act,” it is important to understand this is not extremism and mirrors Muhammad’s behavior and instruction. MuhammadRead moreRead more

‘Redeeming Sex:’ Identifying Hirsch’s False Teachings Is Key to Discernment

Many books about homosexuality are hitting the shelves to coincide with upcoming U.S. Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage. Among them I reviewed Scott McKnight’s A Fellowship of Differents and now Debra Hirsch’s Redeeming Sex. Hirsch, a former lesbian-turned-heterosexual-married-self-describing-Christian, exemplifies the need and ability to discern false teaching presented as biblical. Many of her arguments are basedRead moreRead more

Seminary Distributes Condoms, Compares Christ’s Second Coming to Gay Sex

Much false teaching and false representation of Christianity exists in America today. One recent example is the distribution of free condoms by Chicago Theological Seminary, an affiliate of the United Church of Christ (UCC).

Al Sharpton Is As Much a Reverend As I Am a Black Man

In America many people claim to be something they are not and get away with it, which explains why Al Sharpton continues to use the title Reverend. However, he is as much a reverend as I am a black man. By age ten Sharpton was “ordained” by Pentecostal minister Bishop F.D. Washington—a man with noRead moreRead more

As Christianity exits Europe, ‘Criminal Muslims’ fill void with rabid violence

History provides ample evidence of ways in which the local church provides continuity, encouragement and support of family life and societal freedoms. It also reveals what happens when churches close: societal structures erode, crime escalates, and freedoms evaporate. Throughout Europe, tens of thousands of churches have been torn down, sold and repurposed due to an 80-90 percent drop inRead moreRead more
