What the church of America desperately needs today is a revival of the fear of God.
I'm not talking about a servile fear for a petty and unpredictable deity. Perfect love casts out that kind of fear (see 1 John 4:18).
I'm talking about the reverential fear deserved by a holy and all-powerful God, the kind of fear that causes us to walk carefully in His sight. Such godly awe is sadly lacking in the Body. more >>
It's called Pandora's Box.
And the Supreme Court just opened it.
Did you actually think the debate over "gay marriage" was about marriage? Have you really come to believe that this cultural kerfuffle has anything to do with "civil rights" or "equality"? Have you bought into the popular premise that this is a legitimate discussion on federalism – that it's a reasonable disagreement over whether the U.S. Constitution's equal protection clause requires that newfangled "gay marriage," something rooted in same-sex sodomy, a deviant and disease-prone behavior our Constitution's framers officially declared "the infamous crime against nature," be made law of the land? more >>
CHARLOTTE — Due to the evidence, a generation of skeptics are now open to believing in the resurrection, the foundational event for the Christian faith, Gary Habermas explained at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 21st Annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics.
Critics have recently begun to acknowledge facts central to Jesus' resurrection, he claimed.
Habermas, distinguished research professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy and Theology at Liberty University and visiting professor at Southern Evangelical Seminary, is an expert on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He has written 18 books, and over 100 book chapters and journal articles on the topic. His next book will be 3,000 pages compiling his life work. Half of the book will be new material that does not appear in any of his previous books, Habermas announced during his talk. more >>
Australian megachurch Hillsong will draw thousands to New York City's Madison Square Garden next week for its annual conference tour organized under the banner of "No Other Name."
The "No Other Name" theme, which is also the title of Hillsong Worship's latest album, takes into account what the megachurch considers its "collective mandate, calling and great honor." That mandate, attributed to "His Church on earth" and based on Acts 4:12 in the Bible, is to declare everywhere: "There is NO OTHER NAME whereby men and women find their salvation, sense of purpose and eternal homecoming."
The popular ministry, led by Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, will return to New York City for the second time since its premiere U.S. conference in 2013, when reportedly nearly 7,000 came together for the two-day meeting. more >>
In response to my October 3rd article, "Gordon College, Don't Sell Your Soul for Secular Accreditation," a representative of the school reached out to me with some very positive news, assuring me that the school had no intention of changing its policy on homosexual practice.
First, I was referred to a statement by Gordon College President Michael D. Lindsay, quoted in a September 20, 2014 interview with the (Gordon) Tartan school newspaper.
In the interview, President Lindsay stated that, " . . . I think it would be shortsighted for us as a community to expect, come February, the board is going to make some master pronouncement, and that will be the end-all-be-all. Based on my conversations, I think that the board is currently quite satisfied with our current policy around homosexual behavior." more >>
The 1973 Roe v Wade high court will forever be stained with the blood of children on its collective hands.
The liberal majority in the 2014 Roberts court will now be labeled with the "C" word—for being cowards. These justices upended American civilization while standing on the sidelines.
Millions of voters in five states were assaulted in the public square, disenfranchised by this court's decision to not overturn erroneous lower court rulings validating same sex "marriage." Like Saul during the stoning of Stephen, they became bystanders, nodding their assent as terrible violence was committed. more >>
