- Robert Jeffress Accuses Dallas Mayor of Religious ‘Hostility’ for Vilifying ‘Christian Nation’ Event
I believe Jeffress (photo right) would do much better by working to spread the Gospel rather than joining with conservative religious unbelievers to try to prop up the Falwellian notion of America being a “Christian Nation.”
A few days ago, Francis visited the headquarters of the World Council of Churches in Geneva to help celebrate that organization’s 75th anniversary and bolster ecumenism. There may be an exception here and there, but it’s doubtful that any minister of a WCC-affiliated church preaches the Gospel of salvation by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

Pope Francis used the church synods of 2014 and 2015 to prepare the way for his “Amoris Laetitia” encyclical, which guilefully lifted the ban on communion for remarried divorcees. Francis and his progressive allies are now “greasing the skids” for pro-gay accommodations at the World Meeting of Families conference in Ireland in August and at the Synod of Bishops in October. Church conservatives, led by cardinal Burke, are staging their own competing conference in opposition to the Irish event, but still lack the gumption to officially break with the pope.
- Canada Supreme Court Says Christian Law School Can Be Denied Accreditation for Opposing Homosexuality
Canada is several years ahead of the U.S. with its hostile attitude toward Biblical Christianity. The LGBTQ community will not tolerate the Bible’s stand against homosexuality.
Twenty years ago, if an American cardinal was removed due to sexual abuse of children, it would have been a MAJOR news story. These days its – ho-hum – a short blurb on page six.
I’ve been following this intercommunion controversy for four months. First, Francis gave liberal German prelates the green light to formalize intercommunion with liberal Lutherans. When conservatives balked, he called both sides to the Vatican only to tell them to go back to Germany and decide the matter amongst themselves. Then he put the whole thing on hold. And now, in an off-the-cuff, airplane aisle press conference (his modus operandi of choice), Francis declares the matter of intercommunion with Protestants to be up to each individual bishop! It’s simply amazing to watch Francis casually dismantle doctrines long-held to be infallible. Church conservatives are caught in a Catch-22 because unequivocal loyalty to the pope is one of their prime beliefs. Catholic apologists have always boasted that, through divine guidance, popes were incapable of leading the church into doctrinal error. Previous popes forbade intercommunion, but Francis has now overturned that in an airplane aisle. What is a Catholic to believe these days? Come out of her (Revelation 18:4), my Catholic friend, and put your trust in Jesus Christ and His unchangeable Word!
Bravo to this Catholic newspaper for defying a popular Catholic myth! Sir Thomas More is constantly presented as a champion of religious freedom because the Lord High Chancellor of England chose death rather than support King Henry VIII in his split from the Catholic church. What most Catholics purposely don’t mention is that during the early portion of Henry’s reign, when the king was faithful to Rome, More hunted and executed Protestants.
A Chick-Fil-A opened two months ago about five blocks from my workplace and I really learned to love the Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich Combo. This past week, our company relocated eight miles away. I’m disappointed but my waistline is grateful.
