It is believe that in today's day and age, we all need a huge amount of money to live. Well, we all know that money is essential to survive in this world. The quote "money is the root of all evil" has been misquoted for many generations.
"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1 Timothy 6:10)
It is simply the "love of" money that makes us fall into temptation. Having money isn't in itself a bad thing. But just as it can be used for good, it can be used for bad, like other life materials. more >>
Don't judge me. The use of these three words to deflect perceived unwarranted criticism, is indeed biblical, according to one megachurch pastor. The problem is, as with many popular and oft-quoted Bible verses (like Jeremiah 29:11, Philippians 4:13, Romans 8:28 for example), is that Jesus' words in Matthew 7 are usually taken out of context.
In Matthew 7:1-2, Jesus says, "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
While the full context of Jesus' remarks run from verses 1-6, the most frequently quoted part of his teaching in this particular Bible passage usually includes just the first three words — used either lightly or in sincerity. more >>
WASHINGTON — Attacks on citizens' freedom of speech was a topic of discussion at the ninth annual Values Voter Summit in Washington, where a panel highlighted examples of censorship and government encroachment on religious freedom in the U.S. and Canada.
Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College, explained that, in Canada, Christian pastors have been fined or censored for expressing socially conservative views on the air or even attempting to do so.
"I have experienced a lot of censorship and have also been censored by our government for not speaking with a politically correct tone," he said, emphasizing that the Canadian government monitors and censors sermons broadcast on television. more >>
WASHINGTON — Alan Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame and a featured speaker at this year's Values Voter Summit, says his family votes for leaders based on their social values, not fiscal policy.
"I vote per my values, what I believe in," said Robertson, the eldest son of Duck Commander company founder Phil Robertson in an interview with The Christian Post on Friday.
A former senior pastor of White's Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, Robertson explained that, as conservative Christians, his family tends "to vote more because of our spiritual values than anything else." more >>
Christian apologist Don Stewart and evangelist Greg Laurie both agreed during a recent discussion about the End Times that it is a mistake to deny that terrorist groups, such as the Islamic State in the Middle East and other parts of the world, are rooted in the Islamic religion, something they and others believe as fact.
"There's so many groups. What we are dealing with in a broad spectrum is Islamic terrorism," Laurie said during his interview with Stewart Thursday evening at the Harvest Orange County church in Irvine, California. "So, I think it's a mistake when someone stands up and says, 'You know these people are not Muslims.' Well, aren't they?"
Stewart responded, "Yes, they are." Adding that the first thing that politicians such as President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry (and George W. Bush, Laurie added), say is that "it's this peaceful religion that's been hijacked and that it's not Islam." more >>
