Pastor: Don’t share Scripture with me (if my kids are gay)

An article by a pastor named John Pavlovitz has gone viral, and it is accomplishing its purpose: to let Christians know that it’s okay to be gay, in spite of any Scripture telling us otherwise.

New Christian film, “The Song,” not for the kiddies

There are a lot of great films out there that are family-friendly for Christians. This one, however, is a little too, um, hot. The new film, “The Song,” is based on Song of Solomon, and rated PG-13.

Weaponized “Love”: The perversion of Christian love into a weapon of Christian persecution

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.

Man arrested and charged for turning over book tables at Osteen’s church

A few days after Pastor Joel Osteen’s wife, Victoria, came out with this gobsmackingly apostate statement, a man at Lakewood Church was hogtied for going hog wild in the church bookstore – perhaps out of zeal…we don’t know.  Which begs the question: Would Jesus have been arrested for doing the same thing?  At least this […]
