    There are so many religions, let alone Christian denominations, how can anyone know what to believe?  And even if Jesus is the truth, which denomination can honestly claim to be the "closest" to the truth?  Who are the real Christians? Everything is Counterfeit Christianity For starters, it is important to understand that Judeo-Christianity predates all modern religions, beginning in the 20th century BC when Abram heeded God's call to migrate to Canaan.  His monotheistic faith not only set the stage for the Bible to be written, but also for the coming of the Messiah (the Redeemer of mankind).  Judaism proper—adherence to the...
  • Evangelicals Oppose Drilling in the Arctic Refuge

    Christian Post ^ | 06/18/2018 | Mitch Hescox
    Over 16,000 pro-life Christians have recently signed a petition asking that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge be protected from drilling. The reason we are speaking out is because we are "called by God to be a steward of America's majesty." And the Arctic Refuge is one of the most majestic places in our nation. Unfortunately, the Arctic Refuge has never been more imperiled. After four decades of attempts, last year drilling proponents succeeded in attaching an amendment allowing drilling to a must-pass spending bill. Even past staunch Republican defenders of the Arctic Refuge voted the wrong way this time. Before...
  • Clergy Buy Cassocks Recycled from Bottles as Church of England Joins War on Plastic

    The Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | 5/26/28 | Olivia Rudgard
    The Church of England has joined the war on plastic as vicars buy cassocks made from recycled bottles. A clerical clothing manufacturer has launched the first-ever plastic cassock in a bid to make priestly clothing more eco-friendly. Butler & Butler has begun selling a men's cassock made from 100 per cent recycled polyester made from reclaimed PET bottles. The company, which specialises in fair trade and organic clerical outfits, first began selling the clothing a fortnight ago and Mr Butler says it has been popular with ethically-minded clergy. Director of the company the Rev Simon Butler said it had come...

    (VATICAN NEWS) Pope Francis on Saturday addressed participants at a Vatican conference dedicated to the need for a transition to clean energy. Addressing some 40 participants in a Vatican conference dedicated to “Energy Transition and Care for our Common Home”, Pope Francis said “civiliazation requires energy but energy use must not destroy civilization”. The two-day conference that wrapped up on Saturday, was promoted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in collaboration with Notre Dame University. It saw the participation of senior executives of leading oil and gas companies including ExxonMobil, Eni, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Equinor and Pemex. In his...

    Breitbart ^ | June 8, 2018 | Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
    Pope Francis has once again denounced an “ecological crisis” sweeping the world, which is allegedly producing a “growing exodus of climate migrants and environmental refugees.” The pope’s words formed part of a message he sent to the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I, and to the participants in an International Symposium titled “Toward a Greener Attica: Preserving the Planet and Protecting its People,” taking place in Athens, Greece this week. Although the pope does not specify what he means by “a growing exodus of climate migrants and environmental refugees,” one must infer that he believes that significant numbers of...

Well, you might be surprised to find out how fast you’re actually moving even when you think you’re “standing still.” Earth, at the latitude of Washington, D.C., is spinning at a rate of about 750 miles per hour [1].At the same time, the spinning Earth is rotating around the Sun at approximately 67,000 miles per hour [2].And the Sun around which we move so rapidly is...

    Pope Francis is hosting a gathering next week at the Vatican with executives of major oil producers and investment firms to talk about how the companies can address climate change, according to several people familiar with the event. Why it matters: It’s one of the most significant developments showing how corporations are working with other world leaders on climate change amid President Trump’s whole-scale retreat on the issue. Situational awareness: One year ago today, Trump announced his intention to withdraw America from the Paris climate deal, which now has support from every country except the United States. Three years ago,...

    The news was good. We were right on time with our list of questions and the answers made us very happy. Today we went to my wife’s doctor to get his opinion of her situation after her needle biopsy to check for breast cancer. He is very kind and almost as soon as he walked into the examination room he said to my wife, “You do not have cancer. Say that,” He waited until she said “I don’t have cancer,” before he explained that it was unfortunate that the word “carcinoma” is in the diagnosis she was read by the...

    For the past few weeks my wife and I have been dealing with the possibility that she has breast cancer. Today we got a call that says most of the problem is benign BUT there is still something that has to be addressed. We see a surgeon tomorrow and we are hoping he will say any procedure that is called for can be done in a few months as we have lots of things lined up for the summer. We have prayed together about this and are taking things one step at a time. Please pray with us that we...

    The very first post on this blog concerned a court case I had brought against a coroner, about an inquest into a death.  Since then, there has been a long, drawn-out court case against a council that occurred because a police officer took exception to some of the earlier posts on this blog, all of which are still here.  That case is presently in Strasbourg, awaiting a decision on admissibility. It looks as though I am not going to be able to escape from my duty, which seems now to be to bring another court case before long, this time against the...

    Last week I and others pondered aloud the very real probability that the British medical system, with the collusion of Britain's legal system and even the Roman Catholic hierarchy in that country, murdered Alfie Evans in cold blood.  They did the deed just before he attained his second birthday, which is today.  The timing of that is no coincidence.  They appeared in a hurry to have him die before he reached his second birthday, and there is a reason as explained here. "Oh, it's just a tin-foil-hat crank conspiracy website!", one may poo-poo.  If you believe that, did you search...

    The exotic concept of spontaneous generation was taken seriously by astute thinkers for a long time before the invention of microbiology. Of course, they knew about the proximate process of birth, but the biological source of life itself exercised such minds as Anaximander six hundred years B.C. and Saint Augustine, Shakespeare, and the philosopher of fishing Izaak Walton, and was at least a puzzle to Darwin. Spontaneous generation was the theory that living organisms could arise from inanimate matter, like fleas born from dust, or mice from salt and bees from animal blood and, in the speculation of Aristotle, scallops...

Just to give an overview:- The Rome of Francis hosts the occultic Katy Perry to give a talk on transcendental meditation; promotes a presentation on ''Fake News'' by the disgraced Msgr. Vigano of ''Letter-gate'' infamy; and gives out spooky ''meditating eye'' erm, charms, to participants...

    Archaeologists in Israel have uncovered an ancient site that may offer fresh insight into the ancient biblical kingdom of David and Solomon. Researchers from Bar-Ilan University have been excavating the remains of a large house dubbed the “Governor’s Residence” that was destroyed by a fire in an 8th century B.C. Assyrian military campaign. The impressive four-room home, located at Tel ‘Eton in the Judean foothills, had at least two stories and its ground floor extended over 2,420 square feet. Occupying high ground at the top of a mound, the house was carefully built with deep foundations. Large masonry stones were...

    MANBIJ, Syria – For more than two years, ISIS forces who occupied this northern Syrian city paid little attention to the tip of an old gate on an empty mound of land where they dumped trash. They were clueless the gate ran several feet into the ground down to something they might well have destroyed had they known: The ruins of an ancient Christian refuge, or early church, possibly dating back to the first centuries of Christendom’s existence, under the Roman Empire. “I was so excited, I can’t describe it. I was holding everything in my hands,” Abdulwahab Sheko, head...
