Obama At National Prayer Breakfast: “People Committed Terrible Deeds In The Name of Christ”

Did Obama just use the National prayer breakfast to slam America and equate Christians with ISIS? These videos are pretty distrubing – in the President’s own words.

On eating pork, rules and the Judaizers

“In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.” Mark 7:19 is as clear as it can possibly be. We are not under the dietary laws. Remember before the Law was given, Noah and his descendents were given all animals, every creeping thing, to eat as part of the covenant. (Before that it was every green […]

Walking in the light as the modern church grows darker

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we […]

Gender Chaos: The Insanity (and Impossibility) of “Sex Change”

One of the more, um, flamboyant manifestations of the wrath of God pouring out upon a proud, unrepentant America, is our culture’s embrace of an “anything goes” approach to sexuality, which has metastasized into an anything goes attitude on the very concept of gender itself.
