Steven Bancarz was steeped in the occult for several years before turning to Christ last September and is now on a mission to debunk claims the New Age movement makes about Jesus.
Bancarz shared his journey of how he got involved in such spiritual darkness, his success running a New Age website, and how God delivered him from the New Age movement, during an interview with The Christian Post last week. His new website, Exposing The New Age, is a Christian apologetics resource specifically aimed at derailing the deception of the occult and addresses false claims made about Jesus.
In a follow-up interview with CP, Bancarz was asked to address a particular New Age myth known as "Christ Copiousness" — the belief that human beings can in a way become Christ, and that Christ is a state of consciousness. more >>
The Benham brothers say that the National Collegiate Athletic Association is being used by LGBT activists and champions of the sexual revolution to facilitate a moral revolution in America.
After the NCAA announced on Monday that it pulled seven championship events scheduled for this year and next from North Carolina over its opposition to the state's bathroom law that requires transgender individuals to use restrooms and changing areas designated for their birth sex, residents Jason and David Benham spoke with The Christian Post over the phone to give their response to that decision.
The Benham brothers, popular Christian conservative real estate entrepreneurs who had their HGTV show cancelled because of their opposition to gay marriage, said the negative reaction the state has received to H.B. 2 from major national organizations and entertainers like the NCAA, NBA and Bruce Springsteen is all part of the far-left's three-step process to overtake America with a "radical revolution." more >>
Atheist author and entertainer Penn Jillette has recommended to his fellow atheists that they still practice prayer, even if they throw God out of the equation, arguing that it is important for self-reflection.
"I realized recently that I do something very close to prayer," Jillette said in a video for Big Think.
He said that he calls his own version "Penn's Guilt Round Up," where he reflects on his conversations with people throughout the day, and ponders if he should have done some things differently. The famous atheist admitted that he would use such techniques to help him out in a number of areas in his life, such as losing weight. more >>
Christians should be part of a "church family" and not try to live spiritually on their own, says Saddleback Church senior pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren.
In his Daily Hope devotional on Monday, the megachurch pastor stressed that being part of a church family is essential to fulfilling God's purposes for one's life.
"You cannot fulfill the five purposes (worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism) on your own. Life is not a solo act. You were created for community," wrote Warren. more >>
Mel Gibson has a few new films in the works but it's his film "Passion of the Christ" that is making headlines after Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt compared the 2004 film to Scientology propaganda.
During an interview with Marlon James for The New York Times Style magazine, Pitt talked about wanting to make a film about Pontius Pilate that "won't be for the 'Passion' crowd."
His interviewer James shared with the "Benjamin Button" actor that Gibson's film drove him out of the church, to which Pitt laughed and replied, "I felt like I was just watching an L. Ron Hubbard propaganda film." more >>
As Americans paid tribute to the nearly 3,000 people killed 15 years ago during the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, actor Kirk Cameron encouraged parents to teach their children the Pledge of Allegiance and talk to them about the freedoms the diverse nation thrives on.
Standing in the middle of the flag memorial at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, that represents the 2,977 people who died at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the former "Growing Pains" star encouraged his Facebook fans on Sunday to honor the nation "that our Founding Fathers gave us."
"At a beautiful display of all of these flags remembering all of the people who died in the vicious attacks of our country 15 years ago, I just wanted to say that I still pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands," Cameron says in the video that has been watched more than 454,000 times. more >>
