Dr. Richard Land for Townhall: Trump Delivers Long-Overdue Call for Religious Freedom


No Comments

On Monday, President Donald Trump delivered a truly historic speech at the United Nations in New York, and it was virtually ignored by the drive-by and fake media. The speech was on religious liberty, soul freedom and freedom of conscience. I have been waiting for years, even decades, for an American president to so articulately set forth the bedrock foundation upon which our Constitution and our freedoms are built.

President Trump delivered the speech I would have wanted to deliver if I ever had been given the opportunity to do so. He began by proclaiming, “The United States is founded on the principle that our rights do not come from government; they come from God. This immortal truth is proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Our founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s own religious convictions.”

Liz Yore for Breitbart: China’s Undeclared Fentanyl War

No shots have been fired, no bombs dropped, no rockets launched, no boots on the ground, no declaration of war, yet the carnage by China’s stealth infiltration of America with its fatal fentanyl weapon is an undeclared war. This insidious poison, deployed with the impact of a nuclear missile strategically aimed at the heart of America, has mushroomed into a silent blitzkrieg of mounting American deaths. Its devastating power is causing nothing short of a generational meltdown.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, U.S. overdose deaths have soared to 21 percent over the previous year. More than 70,200 Americans died in 2017 from drug overdoses.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes for The Christian Post: Don’t miss opportunities God brings your way

During my morning run, I don’t like to stop—for anything. The goal is to stay focused, keep moving and finish strong. Stopping isn’t part of the formula. However, one morning I saw a car crawling toward me with the passenger window down. Noticing the elderly man leaning across the passenger seat, he wanted to ask me something. My shirt with the big Fellowship of Christian Athletes logo on the front was bearing witness; I felt convicted—I mean, compelled—to stop and help.

As I approached the window, I saw maps and directions scattered all over the front seat. He had every map known to mankind at his fingertips. His papers were his GPS—old school! He asked, “Can you help me?” Breathing heavily and a little bothered that I had to stop, I said, “Sure.” He asked where the Ritz Charles was located. Stunned, I pointed to a sign 10 feet in front of his car that said “Ritz Charles.” He simply said, “thanks” and traveled two seconds to his destination.

Dan Celia for The Christian Post: Thinking about retirement responsibly at every age


No Comments

By Dan Celia for The Christian Post

God has blessed us with opportunities and skills to earn a living. Hopefully, we have planned for our future and have put away some savings. Whether you are planning for retirement or already retired, a change in mindset must take place.

Before we retire, we work to accumulate wealth. Investment advisers work with us on our IRA accounts, 40l(k)s, 403(b)s, or other retirement plans to reach one goal: wealth accumulation. We become conditioned to that mindset. That’s not necessarily a bad thing if we realize that once we retire, our thinking needs to change.

While the youth of Hong Kong march for freedom and democracy, the Communist Party of China (CPC) subjects China’s youth to a brutal campaign of oppression and tyranny, barring Chinese youth from any and all religious practice and venues.

Communist Party chairman Xi Jinping and his CPC thugs are waging a brutal campaign of religious persecution and subjugation, robbing Chinese children of their constitutional and human right to religious freedom.

Millions of new and returning college students are heading back to campus, and the supplies list is long: Mini fridge, check. New laptop, check. Favorite pillow, check. Plenty of phone chargers, check.

But one serious thing young Christians should have in check is their faith in Jesus.

Just a few days from now — September 14 — is the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children.

This day of remembrance — the 7th annual such day in our nation — calls on pro-life Americans to honor the gravesites of aborted children.

“Pro-lifers are also encouraged to carry on the spiritual mission of the Day of Remembrance throughout the year by visiting a gravesite of aborted children or other memorial site to offer prayers of mourning for the victims of abortion,” say those behind the effort.

National Association of Christian Financial Consultants for Townhall: What Are Your Investments Funding?


No Comments

By Mark Minnella for Townhall | Image from Townhall

Recently on Christian talk radio, I heard a financial talk show host give the following reason for not embracing Biblically Responsible Investing. He said, “When I buy a stock in the market, I am not buying it from the company that I am investing in, I am buying it from somebody else, so the company I am buying ownership in is not getting the money; therefore, I am not profiting or funding them. Knowing that, why does it matter what the company does, as long as it is profitable?”

At first glance, it seems like a logical argument. But it is only valid if the reason stated is the only reason a Christian would want to avoid investing in morally corrupt companies. By its wording, this question seems to assume that the funding of companies that profit from or produce products that are sinful, immoral or offensive to God is the only reason Christians should avoid investing in such stocks.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes for The Christian Post: How to grow in your leadership: Turn to God’s Word


No Comments

By Julie Nimmons for The Christian Post

The issues of being a leader and the questions of leadership characteristics are as old as mankind. From the fall in the garden of Eden through the news of today, we often see the devastating results from listening to and following false leaders. We also know past and present leaders whose tremendous examples are worthy of our attention and imitation.

Where do we go to increase our knowledge of how to be an effective and influential leader? How do we learn to model the characteristics of a leader with integrity? If we search Amazon for a book on leadership, more than 60,000 choices appear. Yet as Christ followers, we have one book, the Holy Bible, that offers the very best examples of what leadership looks like through stories of both great and poor leaders.

EndFGM Today for One News Now: Is the Hospitality State inviting FGM?


No Comments

By Liz Yore for One News Now 

The state of Mississippi proudly boasts that it is “the Hospitality State,” known for its friendly people and welcoming culture. However, child advocates are increasingly concerned that Mississippi is isolated as the lone Southern state not to have a female genital mutilation (FGM) criminal statute – or at least one in the works.

Mississippi is bordered by Arkansas, Louisiana and Tennessee, which all have strong FGM laws; and its other eastern neighbor, Alabama, expects to pass strong FGM legislation soon. As such, Mississippi – without any FGM criminalization laws – risks the dubious distinction and danger of being a lure for female genital mutilators. The Hospitality State remains a standout in the South without the necessary protections for little girls from the barbaric procedure of FGM.
