Fastest growing religion is ‘none’
Post Date: 2018-11-12 09:56:02 by Willie Green
The men and women relaxing on yoga mats recently at a Minneapolis meditation center didnt know it, but most belonged to the fastest-growing religion in America none at all. They included a former Lutheran who left the church because the Bible clashed with science, a former Catholic who became leery of its teachings, a former Baptist uninspired by Sunday services, a young man raised with no religion. They reveal a major force behind the empty pews in churches across Minnesota and the nation. Nearly one in four Americans now declare themselves unaffiliated with any organized religion. An estimated 56 million strong, and growing, there are more of them than all mainline ...

‘God Is Going to Have to Forgive Me’
Post Date: 2018-11-01 18:33:59 by Willie Green
The role of evangelical Christianity in American politics has been a hotly discussed topic this year, intersecting with front-burner issues like immigration, the Supreme Court and social justice. Often the loudest evangelical voices are white, male and
not young. With just days left before the midterm elections two years after President Trump won the White House with a record share of white, evangelical support we asked young evangelicals to tell The Times about the relationship between their faith and their politics. Nearly 1,500 readers replied, from every state but Alaska and Vermont. Hundreds wrote long essays about their families and communities. They go to ...
“Christian Rabbi” Who Appeared With Pence to Pray for Pittsburgh Synagogue Victims Was Defrocked 15 Years Ago
Post Date: 2018-11-01 10:06:36 by Willie Green
The Christian rabbi who was invited onstage by Vice President Mike Pence at a Tuesday rally for a congressional candidate in Michigan to lead a prayer in memory of the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting victims was defrocked 15 years ago, the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations told NBC News. The choice of Loren Jacobs outraged some Jews, who were insulted by the choice of a man belonging to a group that believes Jesus is the son of God for the remembrance of the synagogue victims. Some Jews have said that Jacobs should not be called a rabbi, given that his beliefs align more with Christianity than Judaism. According to NBC, a spokeswoman for the religious group said the Union ...

Pope Francis says the devil is causing people to question the Catholic Church
Post Date: 2018-09-20 16:31:39 by Hondo68
Pope Francis says the devil is causing people to question the Catholic Church; has nothing to do with priests sexually molesting choir boys Taking a very brief reprieve from his more typical lectures promoting limitless illegal immigration and global climate taxes, Roman Catholic head Pope Francis finally addressed the far more serious problem of homosexual Catholic priests molesting and raping underage boys but not in the way youre probably thinking. During a recent sermon, Pope Francis decided to call out those who are seeking full disclosure and truth on the matter, labeling them tools of the Great Accuser, a.k.a. Satan. Thats right: Anyone who ...

The Catholic Church is a cesspool
Post Date: 2018-07-23 15:40:40 by IbJensen
More than a decade and a half after the septic holding tank was overturned in Boston, the unfathomable noxious waste of sexual abuse by Catholic priests in this country is still seeping out in fetid drips. As a Catholic, I believe that the Church was founded by the apostle St. Peter at the behest of Christ Himself. I also believe that it was for many years and will for many more still remain a cesspool. A month ago, Theodore Cardinal McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, D.C., was removed from public ministry after credible allegations were made that he had abused a 16-year-old altar boy in 1971. Almost immediately after the announcement was made, it was revealed that at ...
God is not a Libertarian
Post Date: 2018-07-11 05:22:33 by Gatlin
A friend of mine recently requested that I review the video An Introduction to Libertarian Thought presented by David Boaz on the libertarianism.org website. You can view the video for yourself at this link: http://www.libertarianism.org/media/exploring-liberty/introduction- libertarian-thought. My goal was to compare libertarian philosophy with the teachings of Scripture. This article presents the results of that analysis. Mr. Boaz presented three fundamental tenets of libertarianism: individual rights, spontaneous order and limited government. One of these three is blatantly unscriptural. The other two are somewhat more subtle in their error, but ...
More women looking to become 'consecrated virgins', Vatican says
Post Date: 2018-07-07 15:14:34 by Hondo68
There has been 'rapid' growth in interest in taking vows of lifelong celibacy, Catholic Church says Pope Francis appears before the crowd in St Peter's Square on Easter Sunday An increasing number Catholic women are taking life-long chastity vows in order to dedicate themselves to God, according to the Vatican. The Holy See has issued new guidance on consecrated virginity in response to growing interest across the world in the little-known spiritual vocation. Consecrated virgins are unmarried women who pledge to remain celibate for their entire lives, eschewing romantic or sexual relationships to devote themselves exclusively to being mystical ...
American Millennials Are Leaving Religion Because They're Sinners
Post Date: 2018-07-01 22:59:17 by Tooconservative
Polls can be quite useful. But polls can also cause us to dive down the rabbit hole of interpretation. We often take apart poll numbers and twist ourselves into dialectical pretzels attempting to discern human motivation. At times, our efforts obscure the truth that the answer is quite simple, really. A case in point is Jana Riess' article for Religion News Service in which she explains why American millennials are leaving religion. For one thing, Riess points out that among non-white Protestants the numbers have remained stable. In fact, among some identity sets, the number of religious millennials is growing. Protestants have seen 1.6 percent growth among millennials of color who are ...

PJ Media by John EllisMega-pastor Joel Osteen may not know theology very well, but he sure knows how to rake in the bucks. To put it another way, Osteen is an expert at getting your down-on-their-luck relatives to hand over their money to his ministry.

'It's what Jesus would do': Televangelist asks followers for $54m to buy private jet
Post Date: 2018-05-30 11:08:55 by Deckard
A televangelist has asked his followers to donate money so he can buy a $54m private jet. Jesse Duplantis, 68, based in Louisiana, sought the donations in a video posted on his ministrys website. You know Ive owned three different jets in my life and used them and used them and just burning them up for the Lord, he said. Now, some people believe that preachers shouldnt have jets. I really believe that preachers ought to go on every available voice, every available outlet, to get this gospel preached to the world. In the video, he points to pictures on the wall of previous jets hes bought, before moving on to the Starship ...
Orthodox Problems with Penal Substitution [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2018-05-27 19:35:05 by A Pole
From book Reconsidering Tulip The penal substitution view was completely absent from the church for over 1,000 years. It was only in the 11th century that Anselm of Canterbury began to introduce the groundwork for this kind of theology to the West. Nor was it fully developed into the doctrine we now know as penal substitution until the 16th-century Reformers came along. To this day it has never been accepted in the east (nor has it ever been fully accepted by the Roman Catholics). 1. Penal substitution compromises the deity of Christ and puts a rift in the Trinity If Christ died for, and is our solution to, our sins against god the Father, then what about our sins against ...

Can a pope change moral truth?
Post Date: 2018-05-22 10:44:21 by redleghunter
That joking retort we heard as children, Is the pope Catholic? is starting to look like a serious question. Asked five years ago about a gay lobby in the Vatican, Pope Francis responded, If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge? As judgment was thought to be part of the papal job description, traditional Catholics were startled at what the new pope had volunteered. Now the Holy Father has apparently fleshed out what he meant. According to a childhood victim of a pedophile priest in Chile, Juan Carlos Cruz, a homosexual to whom the pope apologized, Francis said: God made you like this and loves you like this and I ...

State-Enforced Paganism in America

Recently the Huffington Post published an interview with Malcom Brenner, who had sex with a dolphin. He defended his bestiality, saying: And Im hoping that in a more enlightened future, zoophilia will be no more regarded as controversial or harmful than interracial sex is today. For those who have watched the steady descent of the sexual revolution into an abyss of deviancy, there is not much that surprises. Many predicted the results of following the If it feels good, do it mantra of the 60s would mean open season on all Christian sexual mores. They have watched as the so-called freedom of sexual choice has become so absolute that even pedophilia is viewed ...
Does The Celestial-Geophysical-Historical Time Clock Provide Evidence For An Easter Crucifixion & Resurrection?
Post Date: 2018-03-28 09:15:53 by Deckard
Is there any evidence outside of the Bible that the Resurrection of Jesus was a real historical event rather than a myth or an allegory? Unfortunately, there is no time machine to go back in history and confirm this event that is memorialized in the way the western world divides modern from ancient history, B.C and A.D. However there is, surprisingly, evidence revealed from celestial, geophysical and historical accounts outside of the Bible that confirm this event. According to Wikipedia, Easter (aka Resurrection Sunday) is a remembrance of the resurrection of Jesus from the dead (~30 A.D.) as described in the New Testament. Jesus was crucified, that is, hung on a wooden cross, nailed ...
Catholic bishop denies Senator Durbin communion until he repents
Post Date: 2018-02-24 10:21:06 by Tooconservative
A Catholic bishop in Senator Dick Durbins Illinois diocese has issued a statement that Durbin will be denied communion until he repents for his sin of blocking a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. Finally, a pro-abortion Democrat is being held accountable for political votes by the Catholic church. Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois says Durbin is cooperating in evil and persisting in manifest grave sin because of his abortion advocacy and must therefore not be admitted to Holy Communion until he repents of his sin. In a statement on the Diocese of Springfield website, Bishop Paprocki said, Fourteen ...

The following is a documentation of an interview with the German artist, activist for the rights of indigenous peoples, and UN advisor Rebecca Sommer, by the Polish website EuroIslam from January 18, 2018. Rebecca used to support Muslim refugees in Germany, and describes how her experience made her gradually change her mind over core issues. It is a long text but well worth the read. Please note that there is currently a mistranslation circulating, claiming that she said to she was moving to Poland. This is inaccurate; she said she knows Germans who are moving to Poland.
