It’s approaching fast! We’ll soon be sending our kids and grandkids back to school! But where is our emphasis? New classes? School supplies? Clothing? God’s emphasis starts with how we’re preparing our children spiritually. In Deuteronomy 6, God commanded His people to teach His ways to their children. This includes a God focus in the morning, throughout the day and in the evening. Are we approaching God’s mandate strategically and intentionally in our child’s education and life the best we can be?

Consider starting each morning with your kids in prayer, committing to Christ-like decisions and behaviors. Next, encourage this daily. Uplifting lunchbox notes or text messages may be just what’s needed to overcome anxiety or temptation. Finally, end each day thanking God for His protection and wisdom, then close with Scripture and prayer. Character is not formed in a day; it’s formed day by day to train up a godly next generation.

Dr. Michael Brown for The Jerusalem Post: RABBI SHMULEY IS WRONG ABOUT THE NEW TESTAMENT AND EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS


No Comments

By Michael Brown for The Jerusalem Post

In a recent column for The Jerusalem Post, my good friend and frequent debating opponent Rabbi Shmuley Boteach claimed that the New Testament is inherently antisemitic. He also argued that the reason Evangelical Christians have become “the foremost allies of the Jewish people in general and the State of Israel in particular” is because they are moving away from a literal interpretation of New Testament writings. He also alleged that as a Jewish believer in Jesus, I am a “dinosaur” among Christians for wanting to see my fellow Jews embrace Jesus as Messiah. Is he correct?

There is no denying that professing Christians through the centuries have used the New Testament to justify their antisemitism, most recently in the tragic synagogue shooting in Poway, California. They have demonized and dehumanized our people, and taken deadly action against us with New Testament verses on their lips. Continue reading…

Southern Evangelical Seminary for The Christian Post: We need more dialogue about the many contributing factors of mass shootings

By Dr. Richard Land / Southern Evangelical Seminary for The Christian Post

Over the weekend, we have once again been forced to endure heartbreaking images of innocent people gunned down in America, in this case, at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and in a nightclub district in Dayton, Ohio.

As we grieve for the innocent victims and their loved ones, we once again are witnessing politicians of all stripes sprinting to microphones and Twitter to make debating points for this or that public policy. We must come together as Americans and insist that we and our leaders, if they want to continue to be our leaders, have not a debate, but a conversation and a dialogue, and we must talk with, not merely to, each other, and seek to answer the question, “Why?” Why so many of our fellow Americans, almost all male, very frequently young — age 20 in El Paso, age 24 in Dayton and age 19 in Gilroy, California — feel so hopeless, enraged and isolated from society that they would slaughter their fellow human beings. Make no mistake, the answers are complex, not simple. Continue reading…

National Association of Christian Financial Consultants for Lifezette: True Peace Comes from God and a Relationship with His Son

Today, very few people experience a sense of peace regarding their finances — or, for that matter, regarding any part of their lives.

Many believe that moments void of anxiety and stress are “peace,” but in some cases these are nothing more than moments of numbness.

True peace stays with us. Continue reading…

 

Dr. Michael Brown Quoted by Breitbart: Planned Parenthood’s ‘Summer of Sex’: ‘Black Women Are Sexy and Sexual Entities’

Planned Parenthood’s “Summer of Sex” campaign is drawing fire from some pro-life leaders who suggest the abortion-for-profit organization shows it is still in touch with its eugenics past with a tweet that singles out “black women” as being “sexy and sexual entities.”

Writing at The Stream, Dr. Michael Brown, host of nationally syndicated radio show Line of Firenoted, “In one short tweet, Planned Parenthood’s motives are revealed for the world to see.”

Apparently, however, this is not enough,” asserted the author of Jezebel’s War with America.“More black women need to have sex. More black women need to have unwanted pregnancies. More black women need to have abortions.” Read entire article here…

 

National Association of Christian Financial Consultants in The Christian Post: Christians must be aware of what their investments are funding

By Mark A. Minnella / National Association of Christian Financial Consultants for The Christian Post

Hundreds gather, signs raised with conviction. A group huddles, holding hands, some on their knees, praying. Cars honk in response to the message. Some in agreement—some in angry rebuttal. Across the street, a woman talks into a camera, using the scene as a backdrop as she broadcasts the event for the morning news. Skillfully, she chooses her words as she slants her broadcast regarding the human chain across America—a human chain dedicated to enlightening the nation to the God-given right to life, the sanctity of the unborn.

Sally is one link in that chain.

There she stands, giving her time, her life, to save the unborn. But this is normal for her and many of the others she stands with. Sally has always been available to spread the message “life is sacred” and volunteers her precious moments to counsel pregnant women. She is dedicated to prayer and giving whenever and whatever is needed. Continue reading…

Founded in 2012 by former Planned Parenthood health center director Abby Johnson, ATTWN offers transitional assistance to former abortion clinic workers, explained Meagan Weber, personal assistant to Johnson and a member of Samaritan Ministries International, one of the leading health care sharing ministries in the nation.

Samaritan Ministries for Life News: Raped at 18, This Brave Mother Kept Her Baby Instead of Having an Abortion

When even some pro-lifers are willing to grant abortion exceptions in cases of rape, Nicole* and her daughter, Zoe, disagree.

Nicole, now a member of Samaritan Ministries International, one of the country’s leading health care sharing ministries, was raped by a high school acquaintance in 1998 in Florida. Nine months later, she gave birth to Zoe, who turned 20 this past winter.

“It wasn’t her fault,” Nicole says. “I think a lot of people think abortion is an easy out because it takes away the ‘problem,’ but the problem is not the child. The child didn’t do anything. The problem is you have to deal with the grief and the loss and the pain from what happened to you, and you deal with having to forgive somebody who has wronged you. But that person is not this innocent little baby.” Continue reading…

American Pastors Network President Sam Rohrer for The Christian Post: God the Creator is the Foundation of Liberty

4thFireworksBy Sam Rohrer for The Christian Post

As we celebrate Independence Day and the courage of our founders, we must ask: Independence from what to what? The signers of the Declaration of Independence knew, but most Americans sadly don’t. It’s time to reexamine the foundation of liberty and the source of rights that made America great. Liberty can’t be understood without the Bible, as civil freedom starts with understanding spiritual freedom. Continue reading …
