  • Fox Beats up on God

    Townhall.com ^ | May 25, 2018 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
    As the television season wraps up, it seems that Satan is having a bad year on Fox. The still-Rupert Murdoch-owned network canceled not only its devil drama "Lucifer" but also "The Exorcist," which "blessed" us with anti-religious plots about sexually active gay and straight priests and mercy-killing nuns. It even waved goodbye to the sitcom "The Mick," which routinely mocked religion as something only naive grade schoolers believe until they grow up to be "smart and progressive." Is Fox going soft? Rest easy, atheists. For people who want to ridicule God and those crazy believers, there is still Seth MacFarlane...

    Just over two months ago, as winter landed its final blows of snow in New York City, Michael A. Walrond Jr. of Harlem's 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church landed an ideological blow of his own in traditional Christendom.Walrond, who was named "One of the Lord's Foot Soldiers" by Newsweek magazine, told his congregants that the belief that anyone who doesn't believe in Jesus is going to hell is "insanity.""There was a time when you would see people in the pulpit say, 'well, if you don't believe in Jesus you going to Hell. That's insanity in many ways because that is...
  • Eurovision Victory for Israel and the Phrase, "Next Year in Jerusalem". What does it mean?

    The victory of Israeli, Netta Barzilai, and her song 'Toy' in the May 2018, Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal, was not so much amazing or spectacular. The talented young lady's unremarkable song, 'Toy', resembles more of a techno 'Hokey Pokey' or contemporary 'Chicken Dance' rather than a vocal masterpiece. However, what was remarkable were the words she used in her victory speech saying, "Next year in Jerusalem!" What does her phrase mean? 2000 year ago the Jewish people were expelled by the Romans from their land and dispersed to the four corners of the earth (even China!). Since then...

    Is Christianity Just Wishful Thinking? By Philip Cottraux Sigmund Freud devoted his life to studying the intricate workings of the human mind. He is responsible for many of the common psychological terms saturating modern culture: the id, the ego, the superego. The Oedipus complex. But in recent years, many of Freud’s ideas have come under scrutiny. Some have taken it as far as to suggest that most of his theories were made up. His influence has been so strong, however, that it’s hard to sort out what might have been pseudo-science. But I want to focus on Freud’s other notorious...

    It’s too soon to say for sure, but if things continue to develop positively between North and South Korea, it would not be farfetched to think that we are witnessing a miracle unfold before our eyes. And I say this circumspectly. After all, just a few months back, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was threatening nuclear war as he and President Trump rattled their sabers. The situation looked grim, and many pundits were concerned that Trump was provoking a madman with a powerful army and arsenal.Worse still, North Korea has been one of the darkest, most closed countries on the...

    By Philip Cottraux Genesis 4:3: And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. Cain was an agriculturalist. His sacrifice may have been the best he had. But it wasn’t what the Lord asked for. Fruit and vegetables cannot atone for sin. Sometimes we can bring the best of what we think God wants. But if it isn’t what He asked for, He won’t recognize it. His brother, Abel, was a pastoralist. Some interpret this story as an allegory for the conflict between agriculturists and pastoralists...

    The North Indian state of Uttarakhand is now the eighth state in the country to pass legislation that is officially named the "Freedom of Religion Act" but has the allegedly hidden intent to punish those who facilitate religious conversions, especially conversions from Hinduism to Christianity. The latest law carries a jail term of up to two years. The Governor of Uttarakhand, Krishna Kant Paul, signed the Uttarakhand Freedom of Religion Bill of 2018 into law this month, according to local media reports. The law will be in force as soon as the state government, governed by the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya...

    A Christian university in the north Georgia mountains is taking a very public stand in affirmation of the U.S. Constitution and the belief that we are one nation under God. “We recognize the hand of God upon our country throughout our history,” said Emir Caner, president of Truett McConnell University. The university, affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention, recently held a celebration of faith and freedom featuring Fox News Channel host Oliver North and your friendly neighborhood commentator. It was one of the most incredible displays of patriotism I have seen in a long time — complete with a moving...

    the Weekly Standard ^ | 20 Apr, 2018 | Barton Swaim
    Even the headline of the short essay in the New Yorker was meant to offend, and it did: “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” The piece, by Dan Piepenbring, has been read, attacked, defended, and ridiculed by far more people than ordinarily read the New Yorker. If the editors’ goal was to attract online readers, they succeeded. Piepenbring makes no effort to veil his contempt for the famously clean and friendly fast-food restaurant, of which there are now four in Manhattan. He visited the grand opening of the largest and most recently built one, on Fulton Street in Lower...

    By Philip Cottraux Israel was steeped in idolatry under King Ahab, and God had cursed them with a drought. Rainfall was crucial to a civilization’s survival in the ancient world; drought was usually followed by famine. But God was getting ready to shake things up. And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth (I Kings 18:1). Rain was coming; but first the Lord had a plan to rid Israel of its wickedness. Elijah...

    Facing an extremely stressful situation that could've resulted in hundreds of deaths, Southwest pilot Tammie Jo Shults safely landed her severely damaged plane in Philadelphia last week after an engine exploded. In the aftermath, the passengers on that plane as well as many in the media have hailed her as a hero, rightfully so. Turns out, Tammie Jo Shults is a committed Christian who loves sharing her faith. And we shouldn't be surprised by that. Immediately after the averted tragedy, CNN published a piece titled " We Shouldn't Be Surprised that Southwest's Hero Pilot Is a Woman ." In her...

    By Philip Cottraux Imagine casually thumbing through your Bible and coming across Job 4:17: Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker? Your first reaction might be to praise God for showing you this wonderful scripture! Job, one of the poetic books of the Old Testament, is filled with amazing insight into why people suffer and how hard it is to see the big picture of God’s plan in our lives. Typical of the kind of thought-provoking and inspiring messages sprinkled throughout Job, this verse contains profound truth! Right? One of...

    Mike Pompeo, President Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, faced an offensive line of questioning from Sen. Cory Booker – demanding to know if he opposed same-sex marriage and if he thought gay sex was perverse. Booker (R-NJ) came dangerously close to suggesting Pompeo’s Christian faith and religious beliefs made him unsuitable to be secretary of state. •Booker: “Is being gay a perversion?” •Pompeo: “Senator, when I was a politician, I had a very clear view on whether it was appropriate for two same-sex persons to marry. I stand by that.” •Booker: “So, you do not believe that it’s appropriate...

    Full title: University of Washington: Prof put on probation for mentioning her Christian faith in front of Muslim student This is how Islamic supremacist and Leftist students are shutting down free discourse all over the country: by claiming that it makes them feel "unsafe." At Stanford University, fascist students and faculty whipped up hysteria on campus in advance of my visit by claiming that my telling the truth about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat would make Muslim students on campus feel "unsafe." There was not a shred of evidence to support this claim, and of course no...

    SYDNEY, Australia, April 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A Christian athlete in Australia is refusing to back down from his comments about homosexuality, despite public backlash. Israel Folau is a rugby player on the New South Wales Waratahs team. Last week, controversy erupted when he answered a question on social media by saying that God’s plan for homosexuals was “HELL... Unless they repent of their sins and turn to God.” Last year, he said that while he has “love and respect” for all people, he would not support the country’s referendum to recognize same-sex “marriage.” Backlash was swift. The sport’s leading...

    And church attendance by Roman Catholics is on the decline again. So, in fact, is the religious affiliation among Americans at large.The drop continues a long trend of declining attendance at mass. In the last three years, an average of only 39 percent of Catholics reported attending church in the past week. That’s down from an average of 45 percent just 10 years ago. And severely off from the mid-1900’s. In 1955, for instance, 75 percent of Catholics reported attending mass during the previous week.On the other side of the aisle, the new Gallup survey found that church attendance...

    The Alabama Crimson Tide paid a visit to the White House the other day and it turned out to be one of those uniquely American moments. For the record – I happen to be a Tennessee Volunteer fan — but what the Crimson Tide did at the White House transcends football rivalries – even Southeastern Conference football rivalries. Coach Nick Saban gladly accepted President Trump’s invitation and said the entire national championship team would attend– regardless of political proclivities. “Coach Saban addressed it and just said, ‘Hey, we’re doing this regardless of your political thoughts,” offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher told...
