They were always deadly serious about criminalizing Christianity and killing free speech, but now the American left has stopped pretending otherwise. In a recent column titled, "Why Are They Called 'Homofascists'? Here's Why," I wrote that "progressive," "Christian-hating fascists" – but I repeat myself – are "hell-bent on criminalizing Christianity and pushing to the fringes anyone who publicly acknowledges natural human sexuality and the age-old, immutable institution of legitimate marriage as created by God."
I was referring specifically to the left's well-organized and highly disturbing character assassination of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich for his private support of natural marriage. I was also addressing the larger goal of the American left to completely shut down free speech and freedom of religion and to severely punish anyone who maintains both biblically and biologically correct views on human sexuality.
I closed with this: "They smell blood in the water. I've often said that these folks want those who speak biblical truth about human sexuality and legitimate marriage either 1) dead, 2) imprisoned or, if they can have neither of these, 3) marginalized to the point where they can't even support their families. more >>
Billy Graham says that he is praying daily for spiritual awakening in America. Last week Rush Limbaugh expressed that the hope for America is an awakening. I think it's safe to say that most serious Christians concur.
Studying the spiritual history of America we have seen two major times of spiritual awakening that transformed the cultural landscape. In addition, we have seen times of divine intervention in our nation with the Pentecostal movement, the Catholic Charismatic movement, the Jesus movement, and other such times of supernatural visitation.
An awakening or a revival is a season when God's people who have been lulled to sleep are jolted into the reality of the urgency of the hour and the need for Holy Spirit transformation. Some recent experiences illustrate why the time is now. 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 >>
Amid the recent epidemic of liberals behaving illiberally, some still support the liberal values of diversity, tolerance and open-mindedness.
The two most recent examples of liberals behaving illiberally were the ousting of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich and Brandeis University's withdrawal of an honorary degree for feminist scholar and Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Eich was forced out of his position by same-sex marriage supporters for making a $1,000 donation in support of traditional marriage in 2008. Ali was disinvited from speaking to Brandeis students because she has argued that Islam in inherently violent. more >>
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is planning to release, through its liberal sister imprint Convergent Books, a manuscript paradoxically titled God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.
Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?
The book's author, Matthew Vines, is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda. more >>
