President Trump gets it.

During his state of the Union address—as Nancy Pelosi and her crew smirked and shook their heads in opposition to statements that otherwise responsible leaders should have been celebrating—President Donald J. Trump decried New York’s recent law that attempts to legitimize murder of infants up to moments before birth. Trump also soundly denounced the governor of Virginia’s position defending so-called “post-birth” abortion. The president spoke of ending childhood cancer, valuing motherhood and “restoring our culture” to “guard and cherish human life.” Continue reading…

Samaritan Ministries for The Christian Post: Is a Christian Doctor Different?

Will you get different care by going to a doctor who is a professed Christian? How should a believer practice medicine?

I’ve worked in the medical community for 15 years. My colleagues are good doctors, by and large. Medicine has a lot of standard procedures—how you treat blood pressure, diabetes or chronic illnesses—and, for the most part, you will likely get technically similar care no matter where you go.

One of the strong “selling” points of the internet is that it allows everyone who desires to contribute their opinions to do so.

Regardless of their station in life, people can express what they think on the web — and others can chime in with their own versions of opinion. Continue reading…

CCHF’s Twila Brase in CNS News: States Should Seize on Obamacare Unconstitutionality Ruling, Run with It

Two weeks ago, our organization called on States opposing Obamacare to take the judge’s ruling and run with it. The ACA was ruled “invalid,” giving states an easy opportunity to break free.

We asked States to move forward with laws and regulations not compliant with the ACA; to ask insurers to offer the affordable major-medical catastrophic policies now prohibited by the ACA, and to re-open high-risk pools for people with uninsurable pre-existing conditions. Continue reading…

Alex McFarland for Charisma News: 6 Lies About Abortion, Debunked

Because the Bible is clearly all about life, why do some Christians—and, in fact, some mainline denominations—favor abortion, the taking of an innocent life? Let me highlight the main arguments of pro-choice advocates here and also provide a life-giving Christian response to each one. Continue reading…

Dr. Richard Land for CNS News: We Need Another Leader Like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On Jan. 15, we celebrated the birthday of a true American hero, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, a Baptist minister and a courageous voice for racial justice and racial reconciliation. He was truly a God-given gift to our nation.

Frankly, I do not know how we would have made the tremendous steps we made in racial reconciliation in America, although we certainly have not arrived at Dr. King’s vision of a country in which we are judged not by the color of our skin but by the content of our character, as Dr. King so eloquently articulated in his “I Have a Dream Speech” at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in August 1963, a speech enshrined in the pantheon of the most eloquent American speeches.

Africa’s most populous country is Nigeria, with a population that today numbers 200 million and that is on track by 2050 to be larger than America’s. Nigeria is also poised to become its continent’s biggest problem.

Terrorists associated with Boko Haram and Fulani militants are slaughtering, enslaving, expelling and otherwise persecuting a growing number of Nigerian Christians. Some Muslims have also been killed. Nigeria’s government has not been successful in preventing such horrors, and these traumatic effects are rippling throughout that nation and neighboring states in the Lake Chad region. Continue reading… 

Timothy Plan for Christian Post: Money — Ultimate Power Trip or Ultimate Opportunity for Growth?


No Comments

A lot of people are surprised to learn that Jesus devoted 15 percent of his recorded words to the subject of money, and that the Bible has more than 2,300 verses addressing it.

Money is of great importance because it fuels nearly all our activities in some way and can be used for good or ill. It is utterly necessary for daily living, and its handling is a mark of character, again, for good or ill.

A common misnomer is that the Bible—and therefore God—regards money as evil. But this is a misreading of 1 Timothy 6:10, in which the Apostle Paul warns: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Continue reading…

Sam Rohrer for Townhall.com | Socialism: Freedom or Slavery?

Recently on Stand in the Gap radio, the American Pastors Network highlighted an interview with one of America’s young people. When asked, his opinion was that socialism would be the best government for the U.S. When told socialism has never worked where it was tried, he simply said, “Well, maybe we haven’t given it enough time.”

As believers in free enterprise and religious and personal liberty that brought our early settlers from Europe, we believe nearly 200 years is more than enough time to judge socialism and its militant brother communism.

Today, many Americans have conflicted attitudes about socialism, best illustrated by the Tea Party activists who demanded that “government get its hands off my Medicare.” But when a 2015 Gallup poll asked Americans whether they would consider voting for 11 categories of presidential candidates, “socialist” ranked last, garnering 47 percent, behind “Muslim” and “atheist.” Among 18- to 29-year-olds, however, 69 percent had no problem voting for a socialist. Why the disparity? People in their 20s have no memory of the Soviet Union or Cold War but did come of age during and after the 2008 financial crisis. To young people feeling great economic insecurity, sharing the wealth sounds less like a threat than like a promise. Continue reading…

Christian Post: ‘We have more evidence than we need’ to prove Christianity, apologists Gary Habermas and Alex McFarland say

Believers in Jesus Christ “have more evidence than they need” to intellectually defend the claims of Christianity, says noted apologist and Liberty University professor Gary Habermas.

Habermas, a New Testament scholar who chairs Liberty’s Department of Philosophy, noted in a recent interview that he believes Christians “often crawl into a cubby hole and are embarrassed of being called out” or told that they “don’t have any evidence.”

“But there’s an incredible amount of evidence for Christianity,” Habermas said on Alex McFarland’s “Truth for a New Generation” program on Sunday. “I mean, we have more evidence than we need, we frankly do.” Continue reading…
