University of Minnesota at Morris biology professor Dr. Paul Zachary Myers doesn't like young Republicans. In fact, he called them "a**holes."
"That's what they are," Myers told me in a telephone interview on Friday. "I think they've amply demonstrated it is accurate."
And he also doesn't like The Morris North Star, a conservative student publication that routinely draws the ire of liberals at the University Minnesota at Morris. more >>
Pastor Shane Idleman of Westside Christian Fellowship Church, advises Christians to celebrate the power of the cross this Easter instead of focusing on the pagan aspects of the holiday.
Idleman says just like Christmas, Easter can be redeemed to be celebrated for its true meaning. In his recent blog post, he states that redemption is a familiar concept among Christians that can be applied to celebrations since "it's about why, who, and how we celebrate."
"Like Christmas, the historical roots and the secularization do not undermine the message in a sincere heart. Easter celebrates the reality of an empty tomb and the power of the cross to cleanse and redeem…to release us from sin and death. It offers hope and peace to a dying world...Holidays, in many cases, are redeemed when the focus is on Christ," writes Idleman. more >>
A recent article in The Christian Post, Christian Planned Parenthood Executive Challenges Misconceptions About Nation's Leading Abortion Provider, interviewed the new Chair of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Alexis McGill Johnson, where she regurgitated a statistics-free litany of talking points. It was as though I was reading a press release directly from Planned Parenthood.
Far from being "vilified" by prolife advocates, as the article indicates, Planned Parenthood has merely been exposed by historical, statistical and visual evidence that irrefutably reveals who and what Planned Parenthood truly is.
No seeming amount of beneficence, such as breast cancer screenings, STD treatments and (alleged) general health care, makes up for the nearly 1,000 killings that happen in Planned Parenthood centers every day. An organization steeped in eugenic racism and elitism has no defense for the violence it commits against the defenseless. If claiming to be Christian is worthy of giving journalistic space on The Christian Post, wouldn't the same apply to the KKK? It claims to be Christian, too. more >>
For many years now, publishers have been releasing books that claim that the Bible does not oppose committed homosexual relationships. That is nothing new. But it is a sad and shameful day when a major Christian publisher releases such a book and claims that it is a solid evangelical publication. This is abhorrent, disgraceful, and terribly misleading. And it needs to be addressed and exposed.
But first, the background to the story.
In 2012, a young man named Matthew Vines, who professes to be a "gay Christian," released a video of his talk about the Bible and homosexuality, and it quickly went viral. His demeanor was engaging and his appeal to the Scriptures very serious, but for those who know the Word well, there was nothing in the least bit persuasive in his presentation. In fact, it underscored just how impossible it is to use the Bible to justify any form of homosexual acts or to sanctify intimate homosexual relationships. more >>
Janet Boynes, a former lesbian turned Christian author and public speaker is set to address a crowd of Hispanic evangelical pastors at the Una Voz (One Voice) convention in San Diego later this month where she will discuss the church's response to LGBT issues.
After living as a lesbian for 14 years, Boynes knows how potentially encouraging the process of leaving the homosexual lifestyle can be with the help of a supportive church. It has been over a decade since Boynes began to walk in faith, leaving behind her former habits and sexual preference. Now, she leads Called Out Ministries where she helps minister to LGBT individuals seeking to leave homosexuality.
Below is an edited transcript of Janet Boynes' interview with The Christian Post: more >>
Pastor Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of the 11,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, says the resurrection of Jesus Christ is good news for people of all faiths who seek His forgiveness and make the decision to believe in Him.
"It doesn't matter whether you're Catholic, Baptist, Jewish, Muslim or atheist – anybody who trusts in Christ and asks for forgiveness can be assured of a guaranteed reservation (in heaven)," Jeffress asserted during an interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly that aired Tuesday night.
As he answered O'Reilly's questions about the afterlife, forgiveness and God's judgment, Jeffress emphasized that the best evidence believers have for there being an afterlife is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. more >>
