4 reasons why porn must disappear; not change


As with any addiction, the brain always wants more, harder, more intense. Saying that one can actually change the likings of the enormous mass of consumers towards a kind of porn that is non-violent and non-sexist, is a lie.

Globalist Pope Demands US Allow in Illegal Aliens


As the midterm elections loom several days away, Pope Francis has expressed his support for the 14,000 people in the migrant caravan headed for the United States southern border.

According to Vatican documents, Pope Francis expressed his support for the caravan on Monday while addressing the participants of the XV General Chapter of the Congregation of the Missionaries of San Carlo.
Much of the Holy Father's speech focused on the virtue of welcoming the stranger and how nations need to foster this virtue or risk their own demise. Continue to Daily Wire for full article.

Tauren Wells and When We Pray




Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working--James 5:16

Ann Coulter Explains the History of the 14th Amendment

THE TRUE HISTORY OF MILLSTONE BABIES


Having mastered fake news, now the media are trying out a little fake history.

In the news business, new topics are always popping up, from the Logan Act and the emoluments clause to North Korea. The all-star panels rush to Wikipedia, so they can pretend to be experts on things they knew nothing about an hour earlier.

Such is the case today with "anchor babies" and "birthright citizenship." People who know zilch about the history of the 14th Amendment are pontificating magnificently and completely falsely on the issue du jour.

If you'd like to be the smartest person at your next cocktail party by knowing the truth about the 14th Amendment, this is the column for you!

Of course the president can end the citizenship of "anchor babies" by executive order -- for the simple reason that no Supreme Court or U.S. Congress has ever conferred such a right.

It's just something everyone believes to be true.  Continue to full article.

What about those Galileans? (and other Jewish slaughter stories)


“What About Those Galileans?” (Luke 13:1-9)
Whenever there’s an unusual tragedy in the news–a violent death or a natural disaster, a murder, an earthquake–people begin to search for an explanation. They look for meaning. They’re perplexed. They don’t understand why this great tragedy occurred. They ask questions. Why? Why did this awful thing happen? Often they look for somebody to blame. They blame the perpetrator, if it was a crime. Sometimes they blame the victim, thinking that the person must have done something to deserve this. And sometimes they’ll blame God for allowing this evil to happen. Those are the standard reactions to the terrible tragedies that get our attention in our day. And, as we’ll see, this is nothing new. People back in Jesus’ day speculated about why terrible tragedies occurred. We see it in their question to Jesus, “What About Those Galileans?” Continue to full post here.

Documentary Review: American Gospel-Christ Alone



New to the field is American Gospel: Christ Alone, a film about what Americans understand to be the good news of the Christian faith. It asks, “Is Christianity Christ + the American dream?” It then tells “how the prosperity gospel (the Word of Faith movement) has distorted the gospel message, and how this theology is being exported abroad.” It is, in short, a film about how the gospel espoused by so many so-called Christians is not good news at all. This gospel is not drawn from the Bible but from the worldly desire for a long, comfortable, and affluential life. Read the full article here at www.challies.com

(Writers Alive note: The emphasis of theological perspective in this documentary is Premillennialist Cessationism with some exception. I say this because I know the eschatological beliefs of the dispensationalist preachers used in this film. Very Southern Baptist to say the least. Nevertheless, it's worth checking out even though it's a bit tedious in places and could have been reduced some IMO)

What is an evangelical?


Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (MLJ) is perhaps best-known as Britain’s leading biblical expositor throughout the twentieth century. Today we are going to hone in upon the second of his three addresses at the 1971 International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) Conference in which he outlined thirteen key characteristics of evangelicals.

The Golden Calf



The impossibility of an intellectual acceptance of the Gospel; man and the making of his own gods; man's intellect judges God; reasons for the rejection of the Bible; the consequences when man turns from God.

Classic book review: John Murray and The Epistle to the Romans


For Reformed theologians and Berean Christian students alike,  the academic writings of the Scottish born professor of Systematic Theology, John Murray, are well known and held in high regard. For the rest of us mere mortals, an introduction to this man's oeuvre might be helpful. His exhaustive commentary on Romans is a very good place to start exploring the exemplary precision of this theologian's academic acumen. From it, the reader will comprehend the hermeneutical process Murray uses to exegete biblical truths out of the Good Book.

BOOK REVIEW: Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes


 is a book about the historical Christ that every serious disciple should read in order to better understand the communal significance of the Lord's teachings and, especially, his parables.

Bailey, who spent over a half century in the Middle East studying and teaching Scripture and biblical languages, including Arabic, Syriac, Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew, strips away the layers of myth and time that have encased the narratives about Christ with centuries of misconception. He analyzes the parables using, what he calls a "prophetic rhetorical template" based upon Old Testament patterns. Enthusiasts of rhetoric and composition will find this application of chiasmatic structure particularly enlightening.The gospels are nothing if not sheer poetic genius and, as Bailey calls it at one point, filled with "hypertext links" to the Law and the Prophets. Jesus was, if you will, a walking Wikipedia of scriptural truth and he expounded his knowledge in a context that his listeners would have immediately recognized. For us, in the hyperactive world of Western 21st century modernity, much of his references and nuanced teachings are lost and separated from their original context.
