One of the secular left's latest windmills at which to tilt is America's fanciful "rape culture." There is a universal ethos of violence against women, as they imagine it, that stems from a millennia-old global patriarchy chiefly derived from religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular (another of their pet nemeses).
Paradoxically, these "progressive" Don Quixotes actually believe in said "rape culture," something that, outside of Islam, does not exist, while they disbelieve in their Creator, Christ Jesus, who both did and does exist. Exhibit A, of course, is the now-debunked UVA fraternity gang-rape hoax concocted in the disturbed minds of Rolling Stone reporter and radical feminist Sabrina Rubin Erdely, along with some love-struck, not-really-gang-raped coed.
Salon.com's Valerie Tarico is in the same camp. She is the anti-Christian gift that keeps on giving. She hates Christ. She hates men. And she hates the women who love them. more >>
Russia has awarded its largest scientific grant ever to Moscow State University that will allow the school to proceed with a project called "Noah's Ark, "which inspires to be the world's first DNA databank consisting of genetic material from every living and extinct creature, which they will house in a giant ark.
The approval of the approximate $194 million government grant was first reported last week by Russia's English outlet RT, and will require not only building a 430-square-kilometer ark, but also the daunting task of actually collecting DNA from every living creature and the ones that have long been extinct.
"I call the project 'Noah's Ark,'" MSU Rector Viktor Sadivnichy told journalists. "It will involve the creation of a depository — a databank for the storing of every living thing on Earth, including not only living, but disappearing and extinct organisms. This is the challenge we have set for ourselves." more >>
Editor's Note: This is the third in a series on churches that chose not to leave their respective mainline Protestant denominations despite disagreement with the denominations' changes in theological positions. Read part one and two.
John Lomperis, director of the United Methodist Action Program at the Institute on Religion & Democracy, doesn't believe in quitting a denomination over its departure from biblical orthodoxy.
In a column published on The Christian Post's website, Lomperis referred to the tendency of many American evangelicals of leaving mainline churches as being "profoundly unbiblical." more >>
Preacher and teacher John Piper asked, "Should we make resolutions? Should we do this?" in a recent video on the DesiringGod.org website.
"The answer is a resounding yes indeed we should," he answered. Piper went on to explain that Christians should make 2015 resolutions because God has the power to fulfill them and wants to do so for His and our glorification.
The Minnesota pastor's answer is derived from 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12, where the Apostle Paul prays that God "May make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by His power." more >>
As the new year is already upon us, The Christian Post would like to offer a brief look back at the major issues and events of 2014.
Pastors in Houston were almost forced to hand over all their sermons that touched on the topic of homosexuality, a major U.S. megachurch became nonexistent, Christians around the world saw a rise in attacks especially with the rise of terrorist group ISIS, and fear spread around the world as the Ebola virus spread rapidly in West Africa.

Billy Graham cited the religious significance behind New Years before reminding Christians to give thanks to God on Dec. 30.
On the day before New Year's Eve celebrations got underway, Graham pointed out New Years as it is found in the Bible in response to a reader's inquiry.
"Every year, God's people in Old Testament times celebrated the end of the year and the beginning of the new one (just as people of Jewish heritage do today)," the 96-year-old minister wrote via Tribune Media Services. "For most people today, New Year's probably has little religious significance; it only marks the beginning of another year. However, people in Bible times saw the end of the year and the beginning of another very differently." more >>
