Russell Wilson Talks Legacy As a Christian Man on Media Day
Russell Wilson has been speaking about his faith in interviews and on social media throughout the NFL season, so it is no surprise that the Super Bowl XLIX bound quarterback spoke about his Christianity being a part of his legacy during the recent Super Bowl media day on Tuesday. Wilson, the 26-year-old Christian quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, responded to reporters' questions about everything football related. However, the Christian athlete also took time to answer questions about his faith.     MORE

Communist Party USA Chairman Vows Cooperation With Democratic Party
The chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA has penned a 2,023-word manifesto making the critical point that American Communists are eager to work with the Democratic Party to advance the modern communist agenda and achieve communist goals.        MORE
A Baptist Minister from South Carolina Calls the
Ten Commandments 'Sayings' Instead of Mandates
 A Baptist minister is in hot water after preaching a sermon that called the Ten Commandments sayings or promises rather than mandates. In his Christmas Eve message, Senior Pastor Perry Noble of NewSpring Church, which regularly has more than 32,000 worshippers at 11 campuses across South Carolina, told congregants that no word for “commandment” exists in Hebrew, the Old Testament’s original language. “Instead of Ten Commandments that you have to keep if you’re going to be a follower of Jesus, they’re actually 10 promises that you can receive when you say yes to Jesus,” Noble said.     MORE
Newcombe: How is Calling for National Revival 'Controversial' ?
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal did something supposedly “controversial.” He called for a national revival. As a Washington Post article by Rosalind S. Helderman (1/24/15) noted: “Skipping an Iowa event that drew a number of 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls in favor of a controversial Louisiana prayer rally, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) called for a national spiritual revival and urged event attendees to proselytize on behalf of their Christian beliefs.” According to Helderman, Jindal insisted this was a religious event, not a political one. Jindal said: "….We need a spiritual revival to fix what ails our country."So, what makes the rally so “controversial”? Is it the liberal protesters outside the rally? For those aware of America’s history, there should be nothing controversial about Governor Jindal’s appearance at the rally.     MORE
School Prayer: 50 Years After the Ban, God and Faith More Present Than Ever 
School prayer was banned by the US Supreme Court 50 years ago, but there is probably more presence of religion in public school environments – through club ministries, classes, after-school and interfaith programs, and faith-based services – than ever.     MORE
Churches Destroyed in Muslim Mob Attack but Bible Survives
....It was Jan. 16 and by the week’s end Muslims had set fire to at least 45 churches and looted the homes of a number of Christian ministers. Ten people were killed. Followers of Christ fled for the lives. The protests were over the cartoons lampooning the Prophet Muhammad that were published by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. The horrors of that weekend did not generate all that much press coverage. There were no solidarity marches for Niger’s tiny Christian community. There was no wall-to-wall cable news coverage. Nor could I find any mention of the burnings on the White House website.    MORE
New York Times: States Renew Fight to Stop Same-Sex Marriage
 As the nation waits for the Supreme Court to decide whether same-sex marriages should be legal nationwide, another, more mundane front has opened in the wedding wars: the offices of the state and local officials who perform civil marriages and issue licenses.
 Herb Scribner: Three Reasons Buying a Bible Is About To Get More Expensive
If you want to buy a Bible, it’ll cost you $14.95 on Amazon. But be cautious — the price could change in the next few months. Quartz’s Mike Murphy analyzed pricing data from research company CamelCamelCamel and found that the price of the word of God has changed more than 100 times on Amazon since May 2010.

Guardian: Hipster Churches In Silicon Valley: Evangelicalism's Unlikely New Home
Like many San Franciscans, overpriced coffee is a considerable portion of my weekly budget. One day in Soma, the industrial district home to many start-ups, I came across a flier advertising a free gift card to Philz, a nearby coffee shop. All that was required was to show up for service at a local church called Epic. I hadn’t been to church in months, and decided to give it a try. The Bay Area has never been perceived as religious: a 2012 Gallup poll found that fewer than a quarter of residents identify as “very religious” (defined as going to church weekly), as opposed to 40% of the nation as a whole. High salaries have drawn droves of well-educated millennials to the booming tech sector....
Rick Moran: Who Is Killing the Great Bankers of Europe?
This is either the most interesting case of coincidental deaths or one of the most evil plots in modern history. Western bankers are dropping dead all over the place - most of them youngish and in good health. There appear to be an unusual number of suicides and "unexplained" deaths.

Clint Archer: The High Cost of Free Speech - Charlie Hebdo and Christianity
My American friends who were born into a bastion of free speech sometimes take their First Amendment privilege for granted. But I was raised in South Africa under the Apartheid regime. We were taught  that freedom of speech was a destabilizing ideology held by Liberals, Communists (ironic!), and terrorists (more ironic in the shadow of the attacks on a French satirical newspaper, Charlie Hebdo). Banned books, censorship, and a regulated media were commonplace and seemed normal and necessary in order to provide order in our society.  MORE
Church Tech & Media: How to Find Time for Digital Communications at Your Church
“I don’t have enough time.” It’s an excuse I am familiar with, having worked in a church for the better part of a decade. Like many of you, it felt like the daily demands being made of me far eclipsed my ability to deliver. When we’re strapped for time, especially in ministry, we go into self-preservation mode.  MORE

Brian Croft: Why You Should Contact Your Mentor This Week
It is helpful for pastors to look back and recall the impact of the people who personally invested in them, who spoke God’s word to them and taught them about ministry. I remember receiving a phone call early one cold November morning with the sad news that my dear friend and pastoral mentor, Jackson, had been killed in a head on auto collision with a drunk driver.  Jackson and I had a very special friendship.   MORE
Tim Challies: Your Deepest Identity
....More than anything else, your new identity hinges on this one simple truth: You are in Christ. You are united to Christ, and identified with him. Many Christians through the years have said that of all the blessings you receive as a Christian, none is greater than this. Why? Because it is only through your union with Christ that you gain all the benefits of Christ. His life is your life, his death is your death, his righteousness is your righteousness...   MORE

R.C. Sproul: What Is Practical Atheism?
...What is deadly to the church is when the external forms of religion are maintained while their substance is discarded. This we call practical atheism. Practical atheism appears when we live as if there were no God. The externals continue, but man becomes the central thrust of devotion as the attention of religious concern shifts away from man’s devotion to God to man’s devotion to man, bypassing God. MORE
David Cloud: The Dead Sea Scrolls

Christopher Cone: The Basis and Mandate of Christian Ethics
....If God’s own purpose in His activities is His own glory (e.g., Eph 1:6, 12, 14), then it should come as no surprise that the stated singular purpose in our activities is that we should likewise glorify Him. This is the ought of Christian ethics: that we should glorify God, and it is important that we also understand the is upon which the ought is grounded.     MORE

Atheists Launch Vile Attack Against Mayor Who Honors God 
A small town in Alabama that has been heavily criticized by anti-religion groups has received a boost from attorneys with the Pacific Justice Institute. The City of Winfield, outside of Birmingham, came under fire after the mayor and city council passed a proclamation in December acknowledging the blessings of God and expressing a desire to seek divine guidance. Over the next several weeks, the city received blistering letters of condemnation from the American Civil Liberties Union and Freedom From Religion Foundation decrying the alleged violation of separation of church and state.      MORE
ISIS Threatens To Behead Obama, Threatens Japanese And Jordanian Hostages
ISIS issued a menacing message to Barack Obama and threatened the lives of Japanese and Jordanian hostages in new online messages. In an online video discovered by the Middle East Media Research Institute, three ISIS fighters stand behind a Kurdish fighter who is on his knees before them. One of the fighters, clad in black, issues the following message to Obama: Know, oh Obama, that will reach America. Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House, and transform America into a Muslim Province.    MORE
Obama Raises Questions About His Religious Faith While Speaking In India
This is one of those odd Obama moments the mainstream media is almost certain to ignore — a moment that some in the Obama-supporting press will see as trivial, while others might consider it too hot to touch. The Washington Times reports that during a speech in New Delhi, India, President Obama himself — without any questioning or prompting — raised the issue of whether he is secretly a Muslim and not a Christian.   MORE
Alan Eason: Is Religious Freedom a Second-Tier Right?
In a 2013 interview, Virginia Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) gave a chilling synopsis of the state of American religious freedom. He said that religious freedom is becoming a “second-tier” right in America. Forbes, who has been in Congress since 2001, founded the bipartisan Congressional Prayer Caucus in 2005. He now serves as co-chair with Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.). “The Caucus started based on observations,” he says. “Prayer and faith seemed to be under attack in the United States, especially the Judeo-Christian faith. Nobody was standing up from a policy/legislative point of view. We decided to draw a line in the sand.” Asked what he meant about “second-tier” rights, he responded: “The whole purpose of freedom of speech is that you can say what you want to say. . . . That [freedom] works for pornography, TV . . . but when it comes to faith, they come down with a sledgehammer.” MORE
AP: GOP Hopefuls Court Evangelicals
 Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney have gotten much of the attention in these early days of the Republican race for president, but as they court the party’s elite donors in private phone calls and meetings, a group of likely candidates to their right are just as eagerly chasing support among Christian evangelicals and social conservatives.  MORE
Christian Ex-Fire Chief Fires Back at Atlanta Mayor, Files Discrimination Complaint
Former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran says he was fired because he wrote a book expressing his Christian faith, according to a discrimination complaint filed Jan. 19 with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. “I believe that I have been discriminated against because of my religion,” Cochran wrote. His attorney, Jeremy Tedesco of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith, said the ADA wants to vindicate the former fire chief following his “unjust termination.”   MORE
So. Baptist Leader Says Mormon Church Is 'Naive' For New Stand On Gay Rights
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormon Church, announced Tuesday it would back legal efforts to protect LGBT people from discrimination along with religious freedom protections. This middle ground approach is consistent with the teachings of Jesus Christ, church leaders said.

Lenore Skenazy: Is It a Crime to Let Your Kids Walk Outside?
Walking while young. That seems to be against the law in Silver Springs, Md. As you have probably heard, parents Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are fighting an investigation by Montgomery County Child Protective Services for having let their kids do just that. It was a Saturday in December when the Meitiv kids, ten and six, were walking home with their dad. (Mom was out of town.) They passed their favorite park and the kids asked dad if they could play there for a while — without him — and then head home by themselves, about a mile.
Daniel Greenfield: The Imaginary Islamic Radical
The debate over Islamic terrorism has shifted so far from reality that it has now become an argument between the administration, which insists that there is nothing Islamic about ISIS, and critics who contend that a minority of Islamic extremists are the ones causing all the problems. But what makes an Islamic radical, extremist? Where is the line between ordinary Muslim practice and its extremist dark side?
Tracinski: Why Islam Is More Violent Than ChristianityAn Atheist’s Guide
But in today’s context, it’s absurd to equate Islam and Christianity. Pointing to the Spanish Inquisition tends to undermine the point rather than confirm it: if you have to look back three hundred years to find atrocities, it’s because there are so few of them today. The mass crimes committed under the name of Islam, by contrast, are fresh and openly boasted about.

Mike Wittmer: Four Reasons to Stop Obsessing About Heaven
Alex Malarkey, who co-authored The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, publicly confessed his story is malarkey. He and his mother had been saying so for some time, but few noticed until last week.

Dan Doriani: How Preachers Read the Bible for Themselves
In his oft-cited work The Religious Life of Theological Students, B. B. Warfield addresses what is perhaps the pastor's single most pressing spiritual question: What is the connection between my ministerial duties and the practice of my faith? This article addresses one element of the question—the connection between study of Scripture for personal edification and the study of Scripture for proclamation. Some advocate the greatest possible separation of the two. Others say it is neither possible nor desirable to separate personal and public reading.   MORE
Brandenburg: Hannah W. Smith, Universalism, and an Unholy and Unhappy Life
Judging by her unhappy and un-Christian marriage and the fact that none of her children who survived to adulthood were born again or honored the Lord, Mrs. Smith neither had the true “secret” of a happy Christian life nor the spiritual power to affect others for Christ...One of Hannah’s two daughters abandoned her Roman Catholic husband and her children to pursue an adulterous relationship, while the other daughter married atheist Bertrand Russell;  both daughters rejected Christianity.      MORE
J.D. Greear: Fisherman That Don’t Fish
“Follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” It is tragically easy for those of us in ministry to forget this, to get so wrapped up in nuances of theology and specific strategies that we no longer personally seek the lost. I came across this modern parable recently that poignantly drives that point home:  MORE

Obama: Those Who Say I'm Not a Christian Don't Know Me, 
But a Non-Christian President Would Be OK
President Barack Obama said that those who believe he is not a Christian do not know him, but even if he were not a Christian, there would be nothing wrong with that. Obama made the remarks in a speech in New Delhi, where he called on India to do more to safeguard religious freedom. "In our lives, Michelle [Obama] and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. Still, as you may know, my faith has at times been questioned — by people who don't know me — or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing," Obama said, according to ABC News.     MORE
Human Events: Islam – Can It Ever Be ‘Assimilated’?
Recently, President Obama said that European countries needed to better assimilate Muslim immigrants, communities and minorities, and Secretary of State Kerry said the “lack of integration” of Muslims in Europe was like the American civil rights struggles of the 1960s. The truth is that European countries have been dealing with this issue far longer than we have, and are now paying for their naiveté – especially during the 60’s.      MORE
Mormon Church Comes Out in Support of Gay Rights
The Mormon church on Tuesday announced its support for laws protecting the rights of gay individuals - as long as religious freedoms are not compromised - a rare conciliatory move toward a community with whom it has long been at odds.  Leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said at a news conference in Salt Lake City they were taking a "fairness for all" approach that would balance religious freedom with safeguards for gays and lesbians in terms of housing, employment and other rights.      MORE
Raymond Ibrahim: The WestDesensitized To Islamic Violence
Following the January 7 massacre at the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, where Islamic gunmen killed a dozen people because the satirical magazine had mocked the prophet of Islam, one thing has become clear: the number of atrocities committed in the name of Islam all around the world have become so frequent, so ubiquitous, that other, lesser hostilities by Muslims, which might once have been newsworthy, are now completely falling by the wayside, seen as minor and insignificant—commonplace, almost expected.  Thus, while Islamic gunmen were massacring “infidels” in Paris (and elsewhere),  “everyday Muslims” in Europe were engaging in less dramatic, but no less significant behavior.  MORE
Obama Campaign Team Arrives in Israel to Defeat Netanyahu in March Elections
Just days after the Obama White House accused House Speaker John Boehner of “breaking protocol” by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress, a team of up to five Obama campaign operatives has reportedly arrived in Israel to lead a campaign to defeat the Israeli Prime Minister in upcoming national elections scheduled for March 17.      MORE
Saeed Abedeni Reports Increasing Pain in Iranian Prison
This has been a week of progress in American Pastor Saeed's case—a U.S. citizen wrongfully imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith—but his pain and injuries remain an increasing concern. On the same day that Pastor Saeed's wife and young children were able to meet with President Obama in Pastor Saeed's hometown here in the U.S., a member of his family in Iran was able to visit Pastor Saeed in prison—Saeed's first visitor in more than a month.
Adults Raised by Gay Couples Speak Out Against Gay ‘Marriage’ in Federal Court
Four adult children of same-sex parents have submitted amicus curiae briefs in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals asking that it oppose the legalization of same-sex “marriage." The Court, in New Orleans, La., heard arguments on Jan. 9 as it considers whether to uphold traditional marriage – defined as being between one man and one woman -- in Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
ISIS Leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Orders Female Genital Mutilation of Two Million Girls
The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham has asked all families around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to circumcise their daughters or face severe punishment. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-declared Islamic State, has ordered the female genital mutilation of two million Iraqi girls to "distance them from debauchery and immorality". The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect four million women and girls, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq Jacqueline Badcock told reporters in Geneva by video from Irbil.

Iranian control of Yemen gives the Mullahs the option of cutting off the sea lanes connecting the Mediterranean to the Indian Oceans.

European 'No-Go' Zones: Fact or Fiction?
The jihadist attack on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a French magazine known for lampooning Islam, has cast a spotlight on so-called no-go zones in France and other European countries. No-go zones are Muslim-dominated neighborhoods that are largely off limits to non-Muslims due to a variety of factors, including the lawlessness and insecurity that pervades a great number of these areas. 
Piece By Piece, Monks Scramble To Preserve Iraq's Christian History
....As an Islamist insurgency roiled Mosul in 2008, monks smuggled their library out, bit by bit, to the Christian village of Qaraqosh. Last summer, when ISIS was inching closer, Michaeel took action. He prepared everything and put the collection in a big truck at 5 a.m. "We passed three checkpoints without any problem, and I think the Virgin Mary [had] a hand to protect us," he says.
Mark H. Creech: The Many Lies of Abortion
Every year during the month of January, churches along with many other pro-lifers across America reaffirm their commitment to the sanctity of human life. As Father Ted Bobosh has so eloquently stated, "We hold this truth to be self-evident, that all humans are created equal even from their mother's wombs. All are deserving of a chance for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We consider this a fundamental American vision for humanity."

Brian Croft: Monday Morning Spiritual Conversation Starter
All Christians should be looking for ways to engage in spiritual conversation with others with hopes to talk about the gospel.  Yet, many struggle to see when those doors are open or how to try and open them.  Here is one easy way to engage others in a possible spiritual conversation that I was taught many years ago and has proven quite effective when asked at the right time.   MORE
Brandenburg: Conservatives and Free Speech
...Is it worth it for conservatives to use Charlie Hebdo for hypocrisy as a tool to shame liberals into allowing them to speak?  Liberals haven't been shouted down at a state university until they opposed Islam, mainly out of their atheism.  They can't be credible in opposition to hate speech against Islam and support for Charlie Hebdo.  I know this is why conservatives link to liberals making anti Islam diatribe.     MORE
Tim Challies: One Indispensable Rule
...The Bible is a sure and steady guide to life and doctrine, but to be that sure and steady guide it must be properly understood and interpreted.

T.J. Addington: When Board Members Don't Get Their Way
...There are some individuals who cannot give up their issues no matter how often the board decides differently. The issues just keep coming up and the board member just keeps pushing. Such an individual does not belong on the board because they do not have the humility or flexibility to allow the board to make corporate decisions - decide issues - and move on. It is what boards do.   MORE
