    HELENA, Mont. — The Jehovah's Witnesses must pay $35 million to a woman who says the church's national organization ordered Montana clergy members not to report her sexual abuse as a child at the hands of a congregation member, a jury ruled in a verdict. A judge must review the penalty, and the Jehovah's Witnesses' national organization — Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York — plans to appeal. Still, the 21-year-old woman's attorneys said Wednesday's verdict sends a message to the church to report child abuse to outside authorities. "Hopefully that message is loud enough that this will...
  • Hillsong Church Becomes Own Denomination, Splits From Australia's Largest Pentecostal Group

    Christian Post ^ | 09/20/2018 | Leonardo Blair
    Citing the growing global nature of the church, Brian Houston, global senior pastor of the popular Hillsong Church, has announced a split from Australia's largest Pentecostal denomination to become a denomination of its own. Since their inception, Hillsong Church has been a part of the Australian Christian Churches, a branch of the World Assemblies of God Fellowship, which is the largest Pentecostal denomination in the world. In a recent letter to the ACC, Houston said Hillsong's operation as a church had outgrown the capacity of the ACC. "As Hillsong Church has continued to grow, we no longer see ourselves as...

  • You’ve Seen One Elohim, You’ve Seen Them All? A Critique of Mormonism’s Use of Psalm 82

    You’ve Seen One Elohim, You’ve Seen Them All? A Critique of Mormonism’s Use of Psalm 82 Michael S. Heiser FARMS Review 19/1 (2007): 221–66. 1550-3194 (print), 2156-8049 (online) Heiser discusses Psalm 82 and the interpretations of Elohim that Latter-day Saints and evangelicals derive from that scriptural passage. Heiser then offers alternative interpretations from his own study. "Over the course of the last eight years I have read several papers dealing in one way or another with that feature of Israelite religion known as the divine council. Anyone doing serious research in Israelite religion is soon confronted with the powerful evidence...
  • Who Are The 24 Elders?

    Unsealed ^ | Gary
    There has been a lot of discussion of late concerning the identity of the 24 Elders first introduced in Revelation 4.  Who are they?  What are they doing in Heaven?  The answer is surprisingly important, because, if they in fact represent the glorified Church, Revelation 4–5 suddenly becomes another overwhelmingly powerful, if not definitive proof-text for the pre-tribulational rapture of the Church. Even within the pre-trib community there is a substantial difference of opinion regarding these two chapters as it pertains to the timing of the opening of the seals and the identity of the elders.  I respect both...
  • Protestants Should Care Deeply About The Catholic Catastrophe.

    National Review ^ | 8/27/2018 | David French
    Protestants cannot and must not view these events with a kind of detachment or distance, for numerous reasons. First, we cannot forget that each and every revelation of abuse is the revelation of a life-altering (and sometimes life-shattering) event for the victim and a faith-crippling moment for friends, family, and countless others. Second, given the plethora of recent sexual scandals in Evangelical churches and seminaries, the Catholic catastrophe should remind us that perhaps only the lack of an equivalent hierarchy has spared Evangelical churches from similar, systemic sin. “Our” scandals are more fragmented only because our churches are more fragmented.

    FULL TITLE: Pro-‘Gay’ ‘Church’ Sells Building, Plans to Open Brewery in New Facility, Donate Profits to Planned Parenthood SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — The pro-homosexual Greater Purpose Community Church in California says that it has sold its former building and plans to open a public brewery in the now-closed Logos Bookstore in Santa Cruz. The brewery, which will also be used as meeting space for Sunday services, will donate part of the proceeds to Planned Parenthood, among other organizations. “We decided to sell the building, because for us a church is a community and a movement,” leader Chris VanHall told NBC...

    A lovely couple & their families could use all the prayers they can get. Earlier this year the wife (32) was diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal cancer. As it’s rare they had to leave WA St for California for treatment. On Monday the husband (35) was taking a walk & collapsed. Strangers found him & called 911. He apparently had a undiagnosed heart condition. He has always been active, seemingly healthy. He is in a medically induced coma. His kidneys are failing & needs a heart transplant. It is a dire situation. They have 3 children (9, 7, 3). Their family, friends...

    The signs are clear, 'X' marks the spot Last year a Great Sign described in the Bible occurred on 9/23.  That same year, an all-time record number of Jews ascended the Temple Mount: 1,293.  The Great Sign pictured a woman in labor and a soon-to-be-born child.  Israel is the woman.  The child is the Body of Christ, the Church.  Exactly 300 days after the Great Sign, the world witnessed the biggest prophetic development in a half-century as Israel, the woman, enacted the historic nation-state law on July 19th at right about 3:00 am Israeli time.  The media likened the law's...

    Equal treatment under the law is a cornerstone of our government—but one group of humans doesn’t get the same treatment as everyone else. What does being born change about a child? Speaking strictly scientifically, nothing of consequence. A child minutes before birth is the same as a child minutes after birth: same physical capabilities, same level of development, both highly dependent on others, they even look more or less the same. Both dream, suck their thumbs, respond to mom’s voice, and feel pain. But when it comes to both federal and state law, the difference between an unborn baby and...
  • The Shroud Of Turin Is Not Jesus' Burial Cloths

    Patheos ^ | March 2, 2015 | Kermit Zarley
    Tonight, CNN presented a one hour television documentary special entitled “Finding Jesus: Faith, Fact, Forgery.” I thought this title was inappropriate because the entire episode was about whether or not the Shroud of Turin is the burial cloth of Jesus. Thus, the title should have had “Shroud of Turin” in it or the like. CNN did some advertising of this special, so I think they were a bit deceptive about whole thing. They interviewed some scholars, including Ben Witherington III who is a friend of mine. I am always surprised by the attention given the Shroud of Turin by many...

    Human rights groups are calling on South Korea’s government to stop imprisoning conscientious objectors who refuse to participate in military service, including numerous Jehovah’s Witnesses who have served time over the years. South Korea’s Constitutional Court ruled Thursday that a section of the country’s Military Service Act is unconstitutional because it obligates conscientious objectors to participate in military service. Human rights advocates said this ruling could be the first step toward creating alternatives for Jehovah’s Witnesses and other groups that object to participating in the military. Representatives of the Jehovah’s Witnesses said that over 19,300 of the group’s members have...

    Former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney lashed out at the decision to have a controversial evangelical leader give a blessing at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem Monday, calling him a "religious bigot." The Senate candidate from Utah criticized the inclusion of the Rev. Robert Jeffress — the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas who is also an an adviser to President Donald Trump. The president recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital last year. "Robert Jeffress says, 'You can't be saved by being a Jew,' and 'Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell,'" Romney wrote in...
