The Bible is the "word of truth." It's mankind's user manual. It's the blueprint, even in suffering, for a joyful and fulfilled existence in this life, and an incomprehensibly glorious eternity in the next. The total truths and precepts inherent within the Judeo-Christian scriptures are both timeless and universally applicable to all people and peoples across the globe, be they Christian, Jew or pagan.
Obviously, neither pornography nor pornography use, in the modern sense, was around during ancient biblical times. Still, since all time is biblical time, and since the Bible transcends time and space, God, in His boundless love and wisdom, has given us specific truths that directly apply to the use and abuse of modern pornography in all its ugly forms.
Studies indicate that at least 70 percent of American men and 30 percent of American women regularly view online pornography. The numbers aren't much better among Christians with a 2011 ChristiaNet survey finding that 50 percent of Christian men and 20 percent of Christian women regularly use porn. more >>

Some, but certainly not all conservatives have elevated themselves to the status of "jerk" in both their words and actions. Here are some tips that may help alleviate the problem.
1) Stop talking about how the "crazy liberals" are trying to destroy America. Those "crazy liberals" live in America, so I sort of have a hard time believing that they are trying to sabotage their haven of safety, freedom and well-being. You can talk all day about how you think their views are destructive (and some of them are), but please, don't blast your social media with how they are intentionally trying to destroy their own homeland.
2) Quit acting like you know more than what you actually do. If you're going to talk about how Obama's latest speech was a whole bunch of hogwash, at least be able to communicate why. If you're going to blow up your Facebook friend's news feeds about how "communistic" the healthcare reform is, please be able to tell us all why and how that is. Acquiring and expressing a vast conservative-vocabulary after a few hours of soaking up Fox News programs doesn't make you knowledgeable. Some birds have the mental capacity to parrot things they hear; it doesn't mean they know what they're talking about. Get educated before you get vocal so that you can really contribute to the conversation. more >>
Pennsylvania's Republican Gov. Tom Corbett decided not to challenge a federal judge's ruling overturning his state's same-sex marriage ban after an "immense struggle" due to "his religious beliefs based on his Catholic upbringing and teachings," an aide says.
"The governor personally struggled immensely with this decision," Corbett's chief of staff, Leslie Gromis Baker, tells Philly.com. "Prior to the opinion being released, the governor was conflicted between his personal and religious beliefs based on his Catholic upbringing and teachings, and the legal arguments that were made in Judge Jones' opinion."
"Given the high legal threshold set forth by Judge Jones in this case, the case is extremely unlikely to succeed on appeal," Corbett said in a statement Wednesday, the day after Judge John E. Jones III overturned the state's 1996 law defining marriage as between men and women. more >>
Since when did it become "extremist" to be pro-life, pro-family, and pro-marriage?
On May 10th I wrote an article entitled Anti-Christian Activists Will Defeat Themselves. Within days, my thesis was being confirmed.
Last week, Martha MacCallum, sitting in for Megyn Kelly on Fox, hosted a heated exchange between Dana Loesch and Democrat strategist Jessica Erlich "about the Benham Brothers being discriminated against for their Christian beliefs by SunTrust Bank, which had announced that they were cutting business ties with the twin brothers." (SunTrust reversed its decision 24 hours after dropping the Benhams, with apologies.) more >>
