Ignoring the well-documented explosion of Pentecostalism in Hispanic nations, Pastor John MacArthur believes that people in the Spanish-speaking world do not know "the true gospel."
In a recently released YouTube video from the Master's Seminary, where MacArthur serves as president, he makes several broad statements about the state of Christianity in the Hispanic world, basically arguing that Hispanics are moving away from Catholicism, but saying not one word about the corresponding rise in Pentecostalism in these same nations.
No stranger to controversy and strong statements, MacArthur said: "We all understand the people in the Hispanic world know about Jesus Christ, they know about the Bible, they know about God, they know about salvation, at least in some ways. They have biblical terminology because of the impact historically of the Roman Catholic Church, but they don't know Christ. And they don't know the gospel of grace, and they don't know the full revelation of Scripture." more >>

Some scientists in the United States are working to make embryos that are part human, part animal in an attempt to save the lives of people suffering from various diseases. But other scientists warn that such experiments could damage people's sense of humanity, NPR reports.
Such embryos are called "chimeras," named after creatures from Greek mythology and which are created artificially by combining genetic material from different species into a single embryo. The adult animals that develop as a result have different populations of cells that reflect different contributions from the species from which they were produced.
"We're not trying to make a chimera just because we want to see some kind of monstrous creature," NPR quotes Pablo Ross, a reproductive biologist at the University of California, Davis, as saying. "We're doing this for a biomedical purpose." more >>
