The Invasion of our Southern Border as described by locals

LORDSBURG, N.M. — Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by cartels. 
The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship. 
"There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico," the rancher said. "People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across. We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal. It’s not just Mexican nationals that are coming across." Continue to the Washington Examiner.

Who Wrote the Bible? The Documentary Hypothesis

EXCERPTThe time has long passed for scholars of every theological persuasion to recognize that the Graf-Wellhausen theory, as a starting point for continued research, is dead. The Documentary Hypothesis and the arguments that support it have been effectively demolished by scholars from many different theological perspectives and areas of expertise. Even so, the ghost of Wellhausen hovers over Old Testament studies and symposiums like a thick fog, adding nothing of substance but effectively obscuring vision. Although actually incompatible with form-critical and archaeology-based studies, the Documentary Hypothesis has managed to remain the mainstay of critical orthodoxy. One wonders if we will ever return to the day when discussions of Genesis will not be stilted by interminable references to P and J. There are indications that such a day is coming. Many scholars are exploring the inadequacies of the Documentary Hypothesis and looking toward new models for explaining the Pentateuch. Continue reading

Classic Book Reviews: Comparative Studies in the Holy Spirit

For me, as I suspect for many disciples of Christ, there is no doctrine so confusing and unclear as the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Or as the late and venerable Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones rightly explains that, when the subject is approached, our imperfect and sinful nature views often vary between two extremes--utterly fantastic, experientially phenomena claims or stoic denial of any contemporary evidence of His manifestations beyond the New Testament apostolic age. Hopefully, my interpretations of the Puritan John Owen's classic work on this blessed person of the Trinity coupled with my review of Readings in St. John's Gospel by the former bishop of York and Archbishop of Canterbury, William Temple, will help the reader to come to his or her own conclusions regarding this vital subject.

Female Genital Mutilation Officially Legal in USA

Congress passed a law, but a court says it's unconstitutional. What is the remedy? 

Uganda has more concern than USA about this issue

On November 20, 2018, the United States District Court in Michigan ruled that the federal law which criminalized Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) more than twenty years ago is “unconstitutional”, and cannot be used to prosecute the doctors and mothers of the very young girls who were brought to be genitally mutilated in Livonia, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. (See United States of America v. Jumana Nagarwala, et al, 2018 WL 6064968.)

Lutheran "Pastor" Builds Golden Vagina Statue

Nadia Bolz-Weber
There was a time when the pro-abortion movement was merely pro-choice. They preached tolerance and diversity in an attempt to welcome other opinions.
Those days are over.
Today’s pro-abortion movement is all about hating on pro-life Christians or anyone who dares defy their abortion at all cost mindset. Instead of embracing other viewpoints and encouraging society to do the same, today’s pro-abortion movement is all about making fun of and ridiculing the views of those who take a different perspective.

Listen to this brief, concise and powerful explanation of the three dominant views today --premillennialism, amillennialism and preterism--and why Pastor Waldron is firmly convinced along with many others that amillennialism is the only correct biblical interpretation of important eschatology or 'end times' teaching.
