On a perfect, cloudless spring day in Richmond, Virginia, thousands of pro-life protesters marched around the state capitol building against a bill that would allow abortion up to the moment of birth.

They were also protesting recent remarks made by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) in support of legal infanticide. Continue reading…

Save the Persecuted Christians for Lifezette: ‘Christian Persecution Is Happening Just as Jesus Said It Would’

Today we stand on the precipice of the greatest-ever Holocaust-like aggression of world domination, as the extreme Islamic ideologies of ISIS have declared Christianity as its No. 1 enemy.

This deluded, false ideology motivates and compels radical Islamic terrorists to murder, rape, pillage, plunder, and wreak havoc and destruction in the name of their god.

Steve Strang for Lifezette: Christians Can Still Support President Trump in Good Conscience


No Comments

By Stephen E. Strang for Lifezette

I didn’t vote for someone who promised to live a Christian lifestyle.

I voted for someone who promised to defend my right to live that way. Why, then, when we support President Donald Trump, do we feel the need to give a disclaimer that we don’t necessarily agree with all his tweets, but we admire his policies and what he has accomplished?

Maybe because we don’t see the bigger principles at work.

Timothy Plan for Ministry Today Magazine: Why Obedience Trumps Performance in God’s Economy

In 1992, I had a successful practice in Orlando called Covenant Financial Management and an 18-year career as a financial consultant/branch manager. But I felt called by God to make another change. I was very active in the pro-life community and wanted to do much more for God’s kingdom.

My hot button was this: While pastors in denominations often had decent retirement plans, the pastors from independent churches were left high and dry. I began to put together a retirement program geared to helping them on a national scale.

Especially as we reflect on the past year with Christmas this week, The Tide global gospel radio ministry is fondly remembering this past summer, when we went back to our roots, in a sense.

We celebrated our 73rd anniversary in August by returning to Roxbury Holiness Camp in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, for a special commemoration. This location is full of history for The Tide ministry.

Mark Minnella for Townhall: The Christmas Gifting Blues


No Comments

By Mark Minnella for Townhall Finance

What message do you want a Christmas gift to send? Do you feel your message is limited by the amount of money you spend on the gift? Are frustration, guilt and sorrow feelings that should be associated with Christmas giving?

Most people would agree that Christmas is a spiritual time. But is it possible most people don’t equate the act of Christmas gift-giving as a spiritual act? For example, you may know someone who loves the Christmas celebration and sees gift-giving as a part of that celebration. They believe it is a must-do tradition, without any deeper consideration. Or worse, they may experience it with the dread of fulfilling a social expectation, which in turn causes resentment. Few likely view gift-giving as a spiritual act or an act of worship.

Stephen E. Strang for Townhall: Promises Made, Promises Kept

By Stephen E. Strang for Townhall

Long before this week’s impeachment hearings, tens of thousands were filling arenas nearly every time President Donald Trump visited a city. And I was among them. When he chose to announce his bid for reelection in my hometown of Orlando on June 18, 2019, I was there, and I write about the rally in my new book, “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election.”

That evening, the president delivered a 76-minute trademark speech, telling all the things he’s accomplished in his first term. No matter what else you can criticize the president for, he keeps his word. At his huge rallies he likes to say, “Promises made, promises kept.” The list of what he has accomplished is stunning, even if often ignored.

Dan Celia for Townhall Finance: Optimism Is Off the Charts, and American Consumers Unfazed by Political Turmoil

It’s been a very long time since I’ve been so optimistic about what is happening in the economy. The latest optimism index dispels all notions of a looming recession. We are living in an economy with business owners feeling very grateful for significant tax relief, so confident that they are set to move forward with business growth plans, all while creating even more plans to raise compensation.

This sentiment abounds and gets even better when we consider the most recent jobs report, fueling only more excitement into this already strong economy. We witnessed not just great but astonishing numbers, and we can give credit to this pro-business administration. An amazing 266,000 jobs added and the unemployment rate down to a 50-year low are major wins for America and American workers.

Mark Minnella for Townhall Finance: The Sweet Spot

An interesting observation—two opposite ends of the calendar and two completely different financial focuses.

Have you noticed that the last couple of months of our calendar is often defined as the “Giving Time of Year”? Charities and churches campaign with vigor for your donations through every media possible, everywhere you turn.

In fact, according to “Giving USA 2019: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for the Year 2018,” American individuals, bequests, foundations and corporations gave an estimated $427.71 billion to U.S. charities last year, an increase of 0.7% over the previous year.

Timothy Plan for Lifezette: If You’re Christian and Married, You’re More Likely to Show Forgiveness Toward Your Spouse Than Other People Do


No Comments

By Robert Knight for Lifezette

Married people are more likely than others to strive for ways to forgive an offense and move on, according to a Barna Group study released earlier this year.

It’s partly because these couples have no illusions from the outset that there won’t be bumps in the road.
