Will Christians be snookered by Shemitah?

How reliable is God? How sure are His promises? Does He ever have (or need) a Plan ‘B’? These are important questions to ask.

Where Has Our Nation Gone since 9/11?

Today we look back at 13 years ago, when Muslim terrorists murdered more than 3,000 Americans in the 9/11 attacks.

Christian Singer Michael Gungor Makes More Outrageous Claims

Not only does Michael Gungor deny the historical accuracy of the creation and Flood accounts—but he believes Jesus Christ was probably wrong, too! Or worse yet, that Christ might have just lied to the Jews about it. This is a sad place for a professing Christian to be in.
