Christian Post; Ken Ham Calls Evolution ‘Religion of Death,’ Opposite of Christianity ‘Religion of Life’Christian Post.

In a couple of additional comments, Ham contrasted the death aspect of evolution with the life aspect of Christianity and Jesus Christ …

Answers in Genesis President Ken Ham is blasting the Theory of Evolution as a “religion of death.”

“Evolution is a supposed process involving death, death and more death — death is a necessary part — death for everyone — it’s a religion of death,” the outspoken Young-Earth Creationist said in comments posted on Twitter Tuesday morning.

In a couple of additional comments, Ham contrasted the death aspect of evolution with the life aspect of Christianity and Jesus Christ’s resurrection.

“Secularists accuse God of genocide ’cause they won’t acknowledge our sin’s responsible for death, but Christ overcame death at the cross,” continued Ham.

“Evolution’s a religion of death — evolution kills everyone. Christianity is a religion of life — through death and resurrection God gives life,” he added.

Ham’s comments come not long after the grand opening of the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky, that “features a full-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible, noted the Ark Encounter’s website.

Last month, Ham invited Bill Nye “The Science Guy” to tour the ark. During the tour, Ham said “I was able to personally share the Gospel with him very clearly. On the first deck, I asked him, before a crowd of people including many young people, if I could pray with him and was able to pray for him there. Our prayer is that what he saw will have an impact on him and that he will be drawn to the gospel of Jesus Christ that is clearly presented at the Ark.”

After his tour, Nye criticized the ark in an interview with The New York Times, saying that it’s going to lead to a generation of children being “scientifically illiterate.”

The Ark Encounter has garnered controversy not only for its interpretation of the Genesis account of the Flood, but also for a state tax incentive an atheist group claimed was an unconstitutional government support of religion.

that Answers and Genesis won a major victory in its legal case against the state of Kentucky after a federal judge ruled that officials violated the group’s First Amendment rights by denying it participation in a sales tax incentive worth millions.

Thousands of Muslims Converting to Christianity in Bangladesh … – Christian Post

Christian Post: Thousands of Muslims Converting to Christianity in Bangladesh …Christian Post

Even though persecution against Christians in Bangladesh is on the rise, so is the number of Muslims converting to Christianity in the south Asian nation.

Just as in other countries where the population is dominated by a Muslim majority government, Christians in Bangladesh are at risk of being killed or persecuted because of their faith in Jesus Christ.

But while nearly 90 percent of Bangladesh’s population of 165 million people is Muslim, Christianity is gaining traction.

According to the human rights organization Christian Freedom International, it is estimated that as many as 91,000 Muslims across Bangladesh have converted to Christianity in the last six years, even though apostasy in many Muslim cultures is punishable by death.

Pastor Faruk al-Ahmed, a Christian convert from Islam who has been preaching since the mid-1990s, personally attested to the rise of Christianity in his own community in Northern Bangladesh during an interview with the British news site Express.

“When I began my ministry in Kurigram, there was only one traditional Christian family and one Muslim background family,” the pastor explained. “Now, almost 1,500 believers from Muslim backgrounds are glorifying God in this area.”

“Persecution will come more but the believers and I are ready to face it,” al-Ahmed added.

The number of Christians in Bangladesh is estimated at 1.6 million, which comprises around 1 percent of the country’s total population.

Despite reports that Christianity is growing in the country, CFI emphasizes that Christians are forced to keep their worship activities secretive to prevent “retaliations” for their faith.

from the Christian persecution watchdog ministry Open Doors U.K. states. “Sometimes, even historic or Mainline churches face opposition and restrictions in putting up a cross or other religious symbols.”

Four Ways the ‘Prosperity Gospel’ Twists Christianity – PJ Media

http://news.google.com Fri, 12 Aug 2016 13:51:35 GMT

Joel Osteen

PJ MediaFour Ways the ‘Prosperity Gospel’ Twists Christianity. PJ Media. Then he quotes from a paraphrase (The Message) of Deuteronomy 28:1-13 and applies it to Christians today. I have to give God permission? What is He, some kid? Osteen and the Prosper …

Over the past 40 years I have encountered and debated the merits or deficiencies of a theology that I did not know had a name. Its supporters call it the “Word of Faith” teaching; it’s detractors call it the “Prosperity Gospel.” Its most popular adherents are famous televangelists, authors, and public speakers such as Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, and T.D. Jakes.

Much of its theology is traceable to the late Kenneth Hagin, and many of his ideas stem from E.W. Kenyon in the early 20th century.

The theory goes like this: Since God spoke the world into existence, and if we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we too can speak things into existence. A popular notion is that you can have whatever you say! So, if you are living in poverty or suffering from illness, you can change the situation by declaring something positive and claiming a promise from the Bible (never mind the context or the intended audience for the promise).

Charles Capps, in his book The Tongue, A Creative Force, (1976) said, “You can actually alter the spiritual and physical world by the words you speak. You see there is more to it than just saying it. The words must originate from the inner man when spiritual power is released through words … spirit words can control both the spirit world and the physical world. Because the words themselves have power, they will work for either God or man in the same manner” (pp 117-118).

Christianity Under Attack Worldwide

Christianity Under Siege From Mideast to N. Korea

Christianity is under attack worldwide

– See more at: http://americanfreepress.net/christianity-under-siege-from-mideast-to-n-korea/#sthash.XiELRQO7.dpuf  

By Victor Thorn —

Does Christianity face extinction in the Middle East? Some religious scholars fret that within the next decade, Christianity will cease to exist in the very areas where it was formed 2,000 years ago. Leah Barkoukis, the web editor for Townhall.com, stated in a October 17, 2015 article, “The world has witnessed the persecution of Christians at an alarming rate.” Statistics speak for themselves. In 2003, prior to the Iraq War, 1.5 million Christians resided in that country. Today, the number is down to 275,000, a reduction of 82%.

Open Doors, an organization founded in 1955 to assist Christians in need, released its annual “Watch List Report” last month. Its CEO, David Curry, encapsulated the findings: “The 2016 World Watch List documents an unprecedented escalation of violence against Christians, making this past year the most violent and sustained attack on Christian faith in modern history.”

Curry added: “The level of exclusion, discrimination, and violence against Christians is unprecedented, spreading, and intensifying. Christians, longing to stay in their homes, are being forced to flee for their lives and for their children’s lives.”

Scalia’s legal views said to buttress Christianity

Scalia’s legal views said to buttress Christianity

by David Roach, posted Tuesday, February 16, 2016 (5 hours ago

 

NASHVILLE (BP) — Those who criticize the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia‘s method of interpreting the Constitution tend to employ a method of interpreting written documents that not only undermines American democracy, but historic Christianity as well.

That’s the conclusion of some conservative literary and Bible scholars in the wake of Scalia’s Feb. 13 death.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia believed the Constitution’s meaning is determined by the intent of its original authors.  Portrait of Antonin Scalia, Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme CourtScalia belonged to a school of constitutional interpretation known as originalism or textualism — which held that the Constitution’s meaning is determined by the intention of its authors, as indicated by their use of grammar, syntax and vocabulary. In contrast, his legal opponents, known as progressivists, believe the Constitution is a “living” document whose meaning can be shaped and altered by modern judges.

Child Sex Slavery is Alive and Growing in America!

downloadThe Child sex slavery industry is alive and growing in America.  This form of slavery that is growing like wild fire and the child sex slavery industry is ruthless and barbaric, once in the child risks their life when they try to get out. The police and other law enforcement agencies need more help on this issue and the one big obstacle in their way is the huge dollars this industry makes by exploiting over 300,000 of our young boys and girls. This is a $32 billion dollar industry folks, It’s not just the local pimp in the town. In the news we see politicians, media moguls and other high society types involved in this flying to islands in the Caribbean not for vacation, but
for illicit sex with minors
.

We see scattered stories on this problem, but the media really doesn’t give the true picture of just how fast the child sex slave industry is growing and destroying our young people’s lives. This blight on our society can be traced back to the tearing down of America’s moral fabric. The assaults on the Church and other institutions have been effective in negatively impacting our founding principles and one nation under God is looked down upon.

This and many other areas of moral decline will eventually bring America to it’s knees. When that happens people will look for answers…they need only find the nearest mirror to see the cause. We need to get involved and put a stop to this exploitation of our children and those of other nations. Human trafficking destroys lives, it destroys communities and it destroys nations. If we don’t take a stand and stop it….who will?

Below are a number of interesting articles that show the real picture.

Archbishop Fulton Sheen Describes Who Satan Really Is

Archbishop Fulton Sheen Describes Who Satan Really Is

Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Archbishop Fulton Sheen

In the past year I stumbled across Archbishop Fulton Sheen and have come to realize what a true man of God he was and how after 57 years on this planet what I had been missing. As a cradle Catholic and being born in Long Island, New York, I admit had no idea who he was. Archbishop Sheen was a gentle man, but from what I am learning he was also a fierce warrior of God.  My father was a career Air Force veteran and I followed and served in the Air Force for over 29 years. During that time I got to know great men and women that were true warriors and they all had a strong belief in the Almighty God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have studied military tactics, read SunTzu “the Art of War”, I studied Patton and other great warrior leaders and they all believed in a higher power. (I want to make something perfectly clear, I was not a front line troop and though I served as a First Sergeant in Air Force Special Operations units I was not an operator.) I have studied martial arts for over 48 years and there too I studied great masters and philosophy. Here I found they also understood it was a higher power that guided them. Many of these people I have come to know had some degree of humility, love of family and yet were fierce warriors. They understood their adversaries and I too studied opponents and enemies and trained as realistically as possible so I could either neutralize or defeat them.

So, now I knew the Lord’s plans for me, so I knew I had to study the adversary…..the devil,  aka Lucifer.   It was in the course of my research I came across this YouTube clip where Archbishop Fulton Sheen Describes Who Satan Really Is and Satan does not run around in red tights, hoofed feet, with horns on his head and a pitchfork in his hand as C. S. Lewis pointed out in his book; “Mere Christianity“. Today we make jokes about Satan and marginalize him which is exactly what he wants and precisely why he is the most devious and dangerous adversary ever known to man’s very existence. Bishop Sheen’s illuminating discussion will tell you who Satan is and why you need God’s help protecting yourself from him. then you can understand why he sought to destroy his any way he could and that was through the very Church Bishop Sheen knew and loved.

Who Really Is The “Real” George Soros?

Who Really Is The “Real” George Soros?

Below are a plethora of articles that explain who really is the “real” George Soros. He thrives by chaos and taking advantage of a crisis as this article from Sweetness-Light titled: Crisis Is Culmination Of Life’s Work. Now where have we heard that before? Hummm, ah that’s right Saul Alinsky disciple and former chief of staff to Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel who said; “Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste”.

 

George Soros touts himself  as a modern “messiah”, the man with all the answers…Mr. Helpful. Ask the British about that or the families of the Jews he turned in to the Nazi’s and were sent to the concentration camps and eventually to their deaths. He spent millions to undermine the United States judicial system which the “American Justice Partnership” exposed in September 2009 and in September 2010 The Heritage Foundation had an article titled; “Hijacking Justice: The Well-Funded Campaign to Replace Judicial Elections with Selection by Liberal Special Interests” By .

 Mr. Soros may characterize himself as a “modern messiah” but you read the information below and you be the judge.

George Soros gives $100 million to Human Rights Watch
Human Rights Watch is anything but for human rights. Just like the NAACP they are a bias organization and they selectively choose what they investigate. If you are Israel, HRW blames them for just about everything that happens, to include Hamas rockets aimed at Israeli schools, HRW blames Israel. Liberal lawyer, Alan Dershowitz wrote about this in the Huffington Post in an article titled; “
The Human Rights Watch” Watch, Installment 1

If you are a conservative black person, the NAACP ignores any discrimination against them because they are conservative.

Obamas Quotes About Islam Verses Christianity

President Barack Obama in Prayer

Contrast Barack Obamas Quotes About Islam With His Quotes About Christianity

With Barack Obamas quotes about Islam and his quotes about Christianity over the years, these quotes only seem to increase the belief of those who say he is really a muslim. Another issue that brings more questions is that you will find him on a golf course on Sunday and not in the pews practicing his Christian faith.   With these issues going on they only add fuel to the fire as to not only his faith, but just who is this man in the Oval office?

Just what does Barack Obama believe?

Does this surprise anyone?  Just look to the rally in Paris and see who was not there and it is quite evident who Obama supports.
