Promoting Godly Relationships, Civility, and Healthy Living

Promoting Godly Relationships, Civility, and Healthy Living

Introduction: While there isn’t one “Christian” lifestyle, there are certain pathways a Christian should aspire towards in life. God asks this of us for His own glory and our own good. In this section, we will first discuss topics of daily life, such as our personal relationships and civility, looking to the Bible as our guide. Then, we will turn to characteristics of negative lifestyles, such as racist beliefs and behavior, vulgarity and obscenity, and body and mind abuse (smoking, alcohol, and drugs). We hope God will speak to you about His plan for your life and how that corresponds to living a healthy lifestyle as the Bible describes. Read More

March 19th Event: Rise Up and Support Israel, Fight Antisemitism NOW!

Christ In Culture/salt & Light Meeting- March 19 @ 6:30 @ Fairmount Christian Church 6502 Creighton Rd. Mechanicsville, VA The above creation was unveiled Sunday, March 3, 2019 at Belgium’s most celebrated carnival of Aalst. The parade featured these two huge puppets depicting pink-clad Haredi Orthodox Jews. One of them leers while smoking a cigar, a rat perched on his shoulder. Against a synagogue facade, the puppets have money bags at their feet. A platform following the float carried other puppets that danced to a song about “bulging coffers” and “Jews getting extra fat.” First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.  Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Read More

Antisemitism on Parade–Everything Old is New Again

Antisemitism on Parade–Everything Old is New Again

By Joan Swirsky | CFP  ( Bio and Archives) ”...the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They’ve become an anti-Jewish party.” —President Donald J. Trump ”...the chickens of the Democratic Party are coming home to roost…maybe then they will also realize that anti-Semitism, like most cancers, is fatal unless it’s removed.” —Michael Goodwin, NY Post Most people thought antisemitism had been relegated to the trash bin of history after Hitler and millions of his willing German-Polish-Austrian-French-Swiss-Belgium executioners—with savage premeditation—murdered six-million Jews in the 1930s and ‘40s, and the world—significantly after the fact—seemed to wake up to the psychotic, irrational, obsessed nature of Jew hatred.

What does the Bible say about racism?

What does the Bible say about racism?

Question: "What does the Bible say about racism" Answer: The first thing to understand in this discussion is that there is only one race—the human race. Caucasians, Africans, Asians, Indians, Arabs, and Jews are not different races. Rather, they are different ethnicities of the human race. All human beings have the same physical characteristics (with minor variations, of course). More importantly, all human beings are equally created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27). God loved the world so much that He sent Jesus to lay down His life for us (John 3:16). The “world” obviously includes all ethnic groups. Read More

When Anniversaries Collide: Dr. Martin Luther King and Emile Zola

When Anniversaries Collide: Dr. Martin Luther King and Emile Zola

By Craig Johnson This weekend marks the 90th anniversary of the birth of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929).  It also marks the 121th anniversary of the famous letter, “J’accuse!” It was written by the influential French writer, Emile Zola, and published in the French newspaper, L’Aurore, on January 13, 1898. Zola wrote the open letter to Felix Faure, President of France.  “J’accuse” is French for “I accuse”.  Zola accused President Faure of antisemitism in the unfair charging and convicting of French Army staff officer Alfred Dreyfus.  The charge was espionage, which carried a sentence of life in prison on the infamous South American penal colony, Devil’s Island.  Since the letter’s publication, even in English speaking nations, “J’accuse!” has become synonymous with expressing outrage and accusation against the powerful.

The Advent Series: Hope

The Advent Series: Hope

from Bible Project Four key biblical themes came to their fulfillment in the arrival of Jesus: Peace, Hope, Joy, and Love and our relationship to God through these. HOPE So let’s say you want to describe the feeling of anticipating a future that’s better than the present. You might be giddy or excited or maybe unsure, but most of us know that experience. We call it “hope.” It’s a state of anticipation, and it’s crucial for healthy human existence, and it’s a really important concept in the Bible. In fact, there are many words for “hope” in the ancient languages of the Bible, and they’re all fascinating. Read More

Catholic Abuse Crisis No accident, Strategy to ‘Destroy Church from Within’

Catholic Abuse Crisis No accident, Strategy to ‘Destroy Church from Within’

“In the 1930s, we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within. The idea was for these men to be ordained, and then climb the ladder of influence and authority as Monsignors and Bishops.”  Former Communist Bella Dodd (see more in-depth here) Published September 17, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The shocking accusation by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò that Pope Francis helped cover up sexual misconduct — an accusation the Pope has so far declined to answer — as well as the litany of sexual abuse cases among clerics, force any Catholic to ask the question: how could this possibly take place in the moral institution that is the Roman Catholic Church Read More
