By Andreas Klamm, published on Jun 12, 2009

...listed last year as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center. He once worked at Noontide Press, run by Willis Carto, one of the most prominent white nationalists and anti-Semites in the United States of America (U.S.A.).

2010: The Year Of The... What???

By D. E. Carson, published on May 23, 2009

...to be passed as a congressional resolution naming 2010 as the Year of the Bible.  So far he’s been mocked by Barney Frank (“Does that mean 2009 is not the year of the Bible?  What is 2012, the Year of the Quaran?”), criticized by Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) (“That’s an endorsement of religion by the federal government, and we shouldn’t be doing that!”) and even caught indignation by one left-wing blogger (“lawmakers with apparently too much time on their hands and no solutions to offer the country are pushing a resolution that will not address the nation’s problems or... (more)

Truth Or Dare Part 2

By Credo, published on May 10, 2009

...

1 Thessalonians 4:4 That everyone of you should know how to possess his vessel unto sanctification and honour;

Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God.

Man was worshipping (worshipping Idols through the fallacies of man-made “religion”) this way ever sense the time when the Israelites were receiving God’s laws, the Egyptians had their deities, the Greeks and the Romans had theirs & so on, but only Israel spoke with, sacrificed and worshiped to the one true God. Hence He’ was called “the God of Israel” and not... (more)

...perceptions which is conducted by the government, who are merely the puppet machine of the establishment). Let’s talk about one of those truths, a saturated truth that was brought back to the forefront of my attention during an email session with a special friend of mine who ask me about religion, in particular the Jehovah Witnesses. She said that they were seeking to induct her into their fold but she wasn’t too sure about some of their beliefs. She wanted to know what I thought, of the question of authenticity concerning the Jehovah Witness religious conviction, while I was at it, ... (more)

Reagan Era Republicans: Will They Be The Ones "left Behind"?

By john robertson, published on Feb 2, 2009

...inaugural day in future years it should be declared a day of prayer.”

President Ronald Reagan changed the face of Republicanism in America on that day in January, 1981 by taking the first leaps, not steps, towards becoming a religious party. “Morality’s foundation is religion, religion and politics are necessarily related,” he would later say at a prayer breakfast in Dallas. “We need religion as a guide.”

Having been boosted at the polls in large part by a burgeoning coalition who called themselves the Moral Majority, the message was... (more)

The Bible Is Not A Smorgasbord

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 6, 2008

... will probably want to use every epithet in the book on me.  Go ahead.  I don’t care.  As I said, I’m only the messenger here.  Those of you who know me, know that I will argue until I am blue in the face about politics.  You can show me facts and if they contradict my opinion, I will change that.  When it comes to my religion, I let God speak for Himself.  This is one topic you cannot change my mind on.

Nov 5, 2008 Is Just The Beginning

By Lady D, published on Nov 5, 2008

...small change can make a difference.

We can no longer afford to be armchair quarterbacks, we must help carry the ball. As Shakespeare wrote, “If you cut me do I not bleed…”Shylock –Merchant of Venice.

No matter in what part of the world you live or what religion you practice or what your culture, we are all humans. We have seen how just some small continuous effort can make a big difference. This is so much more than about America. It is about how we as humanity can come together and make a difference.

We do not have to go out and control the ... (more)

Don't Think Of A Pink Elephant

By Lori, published on Nov 1, 2008

...by consensus of the existing scientific community, viewed as empirical.”

Notice that this statement does not address what I don’t believe in. There is no use whatsoever of words for concepts that are, for me, imaginary or illusory.

Try it out. See if you can go for 30 days without using any terms for the ideas that other people may think of as real but you do not. After 30 days, check in with your brain and see how contents have shifted. You may be surprised. And the next person who tries to stronghold you into a debate about religion will be even more so.

10 Days Of Horror (day Seven)

By Dude Poole, published on Oct 30, 2008

...and story has done over the years, but the 1979 James Brolin/Margot Kidder version does not hold up well in my opinion. Again, this is my opinion, but I honestly had a hard time not laughing at points in this movie.Normally, the scariest movies in my opinion are the ones that deal with religion and/or emotional issues. I am not usually frightened by the "chasing you through the woods" or slasher style movies. If there is paranormal involved, and things outside the realm of the normal, that usually has the best chance of getting to me. That being said, this movie does play heavily in... (more)
