Obedience to God

Evil Raises Its Head Again

Dan Wolf | Virginia Christian Alliance

Another tragedy occurred yesterday, on Valentine’s Day, in Florida. First, my prayers and condolences go out to those affected including school personnel, children, their parents, families, and neighbors. And I also include the shooter and his family. They need our prayers as well. We may never understand why this shooting happened, but in some ways understanding why it happened doesn’t really matter. It was an act of hate—evil.

Pray and Reflect

These tragedies can cause us to become angry and fearful. That’s okay as long as we do not let those emotions control our actions. We must, as individuals and a society, rise above such things. There are several steps we each can take. The first step is simply to pray. As noted above for all of those who were directly touched by the shooting. Pray for their healing, and for those who lost their life.

5 Surprising Facts About the Worldview of Gen Z

IMPACT 360 INSTITUTE

Who is Gen Z? How do they differ from the Millennials and other generations? What kinds of questions are they asking about God, happiness, and the biggest questions of life? What do they think about topics like science, faith, and church? What is life like for a young Christian in 2018? Are Gen Z Christian prepared to follow Jesus in a post-everything world? And if not, how should we go about getting them prepared?

In this episode of the Impact 360 Institute podcast, Nikki Gentry and Jonathan Morrow introduce you to Gen Z, the generation following the Millennials, or the “next, next generation.” For the past year and a half, Impact 360 Institute and the Barna Group have been studying this generation, seeking to understand the worldview of Gen Z, and thinking through how to prepare them to follow Jesus in today’s culture. Now this research has been published in a new and exciting full color report, and Jonathan and Nikki give you an inside look into what it says.

Year in Review: Barna’s 10 Most-Read Articles of 2017

Sexual Harassment 05 2

 Barna Group

It’s safe to say that a lot happened this year. 2017 launched with the inauguration of President Trump, followed by the record-setting Women’s March just a day later. Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, Jose and Maria battered the Caribbean and the southern United States; Americans witnessed a total solar eclipse; a slew of sexual misconduct allegations launched the #MeToo movement; and tragic violence in Las Vegas, New York and Charlottesville rocked the country.

Throughout the year Barna attempted to make sense of American public opinion on a range of issues related to our daily lives and faith journeys. We conduct tens of thousands of interviews every year, and much of that research is released online. So, to celebrate the end of 2017, we’ve compiled our top 10 most-read articles of the year from our website:

If you claim to be a disciple of Christ and you're slobbering over Oprah, you'd better watch this

Published by: Dan Calabrese | Herman Cain Website

She's one of the biggest deceptions in the world today, and when people I see in church every Sunday are buying into it, something is very wrong.

I can hardly even be bothered to care about the presidential talk. For crying out loud, we're three years away from any election. I know, I know, the political pundit's response is that fundraising starts now, and a little over a year from now we're having the first primary debates. Fine. Obsess over that. If and when Oprah decides to run for president, I'll deal with her candidacy just as I dealt with Hillary's. (see videos below)

Baptist Church in Richmond Moves to Open Membership to Homosexuals

Greene Hollowell 2012 150AGreene Hollowell

(The following article was first published on Dec 27th, 2015)

Recently the Pastor of a Richmond Baptist Church, in a sermon, opened the door for the church to consider allowing homosexuals (assume active) into their membership.

The Pastor stated marriage was changing from multiplying (having children) to being about love and commitment. He feels the need to open up membership with the decision of the Supreme Court legalizing homosexual marriages citing civil rights and his belief that homosexuals don’t choose their sexual orientation. In addition, he said Jesus never spoke about homosexuality.

One Solitary Life

Gerard van Honthorst Adoration of the Shepherds 1622 1Adoration of the Shepherds by Gerard van Honthorst, 1622

(the original version by Dr James Allan Francis)

Let us turn now to the story. A child is born in an obscure village. He is brought up in another obscure village. He works in a carpenter shop until he is thirty, and then for three brief years is an itinerant preacher, proclaiming a message and living a life. He never writes a book. He never holds an office. He never raises an army. He never has a family of his own. He never owns a home. He never goes to college. He never travels two hundred miles from the place where he was born.

He gathers a little group of friends about him and teaches them his way of life. While still a young man, the tide of popular feeling turns against him. One denies him; another betrays him. He is turned over to his enemies. He goes through the mockery of a trial; he is nailed to a cross between two thieves, and when dead is laid in a borrowed grave by the kindness of a friend.

Those are the facts of his human life. He rises from the dead. Today we look back across nineteen hundred years and ask, What kind of trail has he left across the centuries? When we try to sum up his influence, all the armies that ever marched, all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned are absolutely picayune in their influence on mankind compared with that of this one solitary life…

The Christmas Bug and the Need to Get Real

By Dr. Mark Creech

During Christmas time, my father loved making this season of the year magical for children.

As children, every year Daddy would remind my sister and me to put cookies and milk out for Santa’s arrival on Christmas Eve night. On Christmas morning, I was always giddy with excitement to find an empty plate and glass under the tree next to my toys.

One Christmas morning, I was nearly beside myself to follow Santa’s tracks where he had stepped in the ashes of our wood burning fireplace after coming down the chimney and walking across the living room floor to place my gifts. I got every kid in the neighborhood to come and see it. Every one of them was in awe as they ogled over St. Nick’s very own footprints. Of course, I wasn’t old enough to recognize that those tracks were remarkably similar; in fact, even identical to my Daddy’s fireman’s boots he kept in the closet at the end of the hall.

Kirsten Powers: Becoming a Christian Ruined My Love of Christmas

Kirsten Powers | CT
Excerpt

But then I learned to see the beauty of Christ’s coming like never before.

In my unorthodox childhood, Christmas was as an oasis of normalcy. It was the one day of the year I could count on some sort of harmony in my divided family.

At age five, my parents divorced and established two outposts in my life, from which I shuttled back and forth. One home was headed by my sophisticated, East Coast-born, feminist mother; the other by my down-to-earth, Idaho-bred father, who held fast to his traditionalist views.

10 Biblical Reasons Behind Trump's Jerusalem Decision

A WND exclusive by Rabbi Tuly Weisz notes the world's holiest city 'has shalom at its core' and provides 10 biblical reasons:

 1) Jerusalem is mentioned over 800 times in the Bible. 
For Zion’s sake I will not be silent and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be still. ISAIAH 62:1 (The Israel Bible)

2) “King David declared it 3,000 years ago!”
But I chose Jerusalem for My Name to be there, and I chose David to rule over My people Israel. II CHRONICLES 6:6 (The Israel Bible)

3) The Jews have never forgotten Jerusalem.
If I forget thee O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither. PSALMS 137:5 (The Israel Bible)
