Harvest Ministries Pastor Greg Laurie explained in a Sunday sermon entitled the "The Nonbeliever's Favorite Verse", that Matthew 7:1 exhortation to "judge not" does not mean that Christians should not try to judge the actions and intentions of others, rather, Christians must exercise judgment because there will be many false teachers as the End Times draw near.
Explaining that to judge is to make an evaluation, the California pastor said that Christians are called to make evaluation of other's actions for many reasons, including because there will be many false teachings in the last days.
"So yes, we do need to make judgments and why do we need to do that? Because one for the signs of the last days is that there will be false teachings; one of the signs of the last days will be apostasy," Laurie told the congregation. more >>
Scottish actor Ewan McGregor is set to play both Jesus Christ and the devil in the upcoming 2015 indie movie "Last Days in the Desert," described as "an imagined chapter from [Jesus'] 40 days of fasting and praying in the desert." McGregor argued that there is nothing in the film that people can find offensive.
Entertainment Weekly released on Tuesday the first photo of McGregor from the film, which is set to premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
McGregor said that he is "not worried" about the movie creating controversy, and said that "there's nothing possibly that could upset people [in the film], other than the very nature of imagining a story with Jesus that doesn't exist in the Scripture," he says. "There's nothing offensive. I'm not worried about it, because I believe very much in the heart of the film we made." more >>
To bring awareness to the sexual exploitation of women and minors in the porn industry and illegal sex trafficking business, a coalition of national organizations joined Morality in Media Tuesday for its annual national day of prayer to bring comfort and healing to all who are impacted by these sex industries.
Hysen Sisco, a spokesperson with Morality in Media, told The Christian Post that the "National Day of Prayer to Strengthen the Fight Against Pornography and Sexual Exploitation," asks "those concerned with the pervasive influences of pornography and other forms of sexual exploitation to pray for those involved in the fight and those struggling with the damaging affects."
"Last year, we saw an overwhelming outpouring of support from thousands around the country. Many wonderful events and opportunities occurred, we feel, because of these efforts," Sisco told CP. "We hope to get the same results so we can further our mission to defend human dignity and confront sexual exploitation." more >>
With the facts in, or the lack of facts, the clear and consistent truth is that Sabrina Rubin Ederly, author of the now-defunct story of the rape of "Jackie" at the University of Virginia is not a journalist, nor are the editors of RS worthy of their titles.
They can best be described as Narrativists; Insistent, ideologically obedient automatons who follow, perpetuate and reinforce select, progressive narratives. Narrativists allow stories to rise through their ranks based on their Narrative Value, and not based on fact.
The Narrative Value is the importance or usefulness of the Narrative based on its ability to reinforce desired memes and preconceptions that are beneficial to select, desired classes and entities, including political parties. more >>
