Keep Your Kids from the Kool-Aid

By Wes Bredenhof Published November 8, 2023 In November 1978, over 900 people committed mass suicide in the South American country of Guyana. They were Americans. They were part of a cult headed by Jim Jones. They had fled to South America to escape growing opposition to the cult in the United States. However, American officials started investigating reports of abuse in Guyana as well. An American congressman came to visit and was murdered along with four others. This led Jones to proclaim that the end was near – it was only a matter of time before American forces would storm his compound. He instructed all his followers to drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. Obediently, almost all of them did, including 304 children and young people. This is where the expression “drinking the Kool-Aid” comes from. It refers to people ingesting poison under the influence of a powerful leader. Of course, today nobody is referring to literal poison – it’s used to refer to poisonous ideas. Today there

Parents, Choose Your Christian College Carefully

By Dr. R. Scott Clark - Posted at The Heidelblog: Published August 2, 2023 The Religion News Service (RNS) reports , “Whitworth University, a Christian school affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), has revised its policies to allow for the hiring of faculty who identify as LGBTQ and to add sexual orientation to its non-discrimination statement.” The report adds that Whitworth is among a “sliver” of Christian colleges who have made the decision to hire “faculty in same-sex marriages.” Included in this list are Eastern University (American Baptist Churches USA) and, according to Vincent Funaro, writing for the Christian Post , “Goshen College in Indiana and Eastern Mennonite University in Virginia announced on Monday that they will now hire faculty who are in same-sex marriages.” Both schools are tied to the Mennonite Church USA. These moves have caused tensions with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. In 2017, all seven members of the faculty senate at Gord

Africa Fights for Faith, Family and Freedom

 By Bill Muehlenberg - Posted at Culture Watch: Published August 2, 2023 "We need to persevere. The other side never gives up as they seek to overturn Western and Christian civilisation and remake it into to their own image. So we too need to get involved and stay involved and keep on fighting. And the arenas of engagement are many, be they in politics or the media or in education or the arts or in law or in writing articles and books or doing podcasts." ‘There’s some good in this world and it is worth fighting for’ While much of the West is caving in and going down the tubes in terms of the three big ticket items that I mention in my title, not everyone is so easily capitulating and selling out to the activists – including the rainbow radicals. Africa is a clear case in point. In numerous African nations the advancing homosexual juggernaut has been resisted and in some cases fully thwarted. In my eyes that is real good news, and it should encourage us in the West to keep sta

Perversion and Post Christian Kids

 By Al Baker - Posted at Forget None of His Benefits: “. . . God gave them over to a reprobate mind.” -Romans 1:28 A recent survey of students at Brown University found that 38% of them identify as LGBTQ+. That is more than double the number of students who identified in like manner in 2010.[1] I preached with my friends Geoff Kirkland and Tom Raborn at my first Gay Pride event in St. Louis in 2018. What immediately struck me was how many of the vast hordes attending the event were in their twenties or younger. And the phenomenon of “transgenderism” is now “hip and cool” with teens and twenty somethings. You no doubt know kids who grew up in your church, who gave strong evidence of true saving faith, but who now announce on FaceBook and Instagram that they are proudly homosexual. Some of them may say they still believe in Jesus and that they are very happy to still follow Him. I was recently listening to a lecture by the great Welsh preacher, Martyn Lloyd-Jones on “The Permissive Socie

When Perversion Goes Mainstream

 By Al Baker - Posted at Forget None Of His Benefits: “Alas, sinful nation, people weighed down with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, sons who act corruptly! They have abandoned the Lord, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, they have turned away from Him.” -Isaiah 1:4. In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, ten New York City policemen raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a place frequented by homosexuals. Most states at the time, including New York, had sodomy laws outlawing homosexual behavior. Since homosexuality was unlawful, the police were there to disperse the people from the bar. Things got out of hand and people resisted arrest. More and more homosexuals and others from Greenwich Village and surrounding parts of the city gathered the next several nights to protest so called discrimination against homosexuals. Thus was born the current homosexual rights movement. On June 28, 1970, one year after the Stonewall riots, gay pride marches were held in Los Ange

The Sexual Revolution: a glaring gap in our kids’ education?

 By Jonathon Van Maren - Posted at Reformed Perspective: There is no series of historical events that have impacted every human being living in the West – and beyond – more than the Sexual Revolution. And yet, while many of us may be familiar with the term, few can explain what the Sexual Revolution really is and was. Legal abortion; digital pornography everywhere; the LGBT movement; hookup culture; gender ideology; threats to religious freedom – all are either an aspect or a direct result of the Sexual Revolution. It has also shaped virtually everything that emanates from our screens, from popular TV sitcoms (which had a hand in mainstreaming revolutionary ideas) to mainstream Hollywood films, produced and directed by the revolution’s most powerful storytellers.

Breakpoint: 'What the President Said About Millions of Americans'

 By John Stonestreet and Timothy D. Pagett - Posted at Breakpoint: By linking opposition to the Respect for Marriage Act to (rightly) ostracized ideas like racism, advocates, like the president, are setting the stage for leveraging hate crime legislation and other cultural tools to criminalize dissent. This past Tuesday, at a ceremony hosted at the White House, President Biden signed into law the so-called Respect for Marriage Act. The president used a lengthy speech delivered beforehand to soundly denounce any challenge to any aspect of LGBTQ ideology and activism. Specifically, in a striking display of anti-reason, President Biden condemned opposition to sterilizing, castrating, or permanently wounding children with gender dysphoria, as akin to racism and antisemitism. Lest anyone should miss the aim of this new law, as more than a few voices from mainstream evangelicalism clearly did, the administration invited a “non-binary drag artist,” who often dances seductively in front of c

House completes congressional approval of same-sex marriage

 By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press: WASHINGTON (BP) – Congress has given final approval to enshrining same-sex marriage in the law. The U.S. House of Representatives voted 258-169 for the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA) Thursday (Dec. 8), 10 days after the Senate approved the same legislation. With the votes, Congress has decided to repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). While the measure does not require states to legalize same-sex marriage, it mandates federal and state recognition of any gay marriage considered legal in the jurisdiction where it took place. Passage of the proposal by both the Senate and House serves as a watershed, congressional redefinition of the institution of marriage. Congressional Democrats led the effort to enact such legislation while expressing concerns a more conservative U.S. Supreme Court might reverse its 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision that legalized gay marriage. Congress’ approval occurred during a lame-duck session prior to the tran

From Columbia Christians for Life : A DAY OF INFAMY November 29, 2022  The United States Senate has just shaken its puny fist in the face of Almighty God and passed HR 8404, the DIS-Respect for Marriage Act, federally codifying protection of sodomite and lesbian "marriage" [sic].

'Have the Courage' to Protect Religious Liberty in Same-Sex Marriage Bill, GOP Senators Told

 By Michael Foust - Posted at Christian Headlines: A coalition of Republican senators is urging their colleagues to filibuster a same-sex marriage bill until an amendment is added protecting religious liberty. The Nov. 17 letter from U.S. Sen. Mike Lee and 20 other GOP senators asserts that as written, the Respect for Marriage Act would lead to “more litigation” against institutions and individuals who believe marriage should be defined as the union of one man, one woman. Lee is the sponsor of the religious liberty amendment, which was first covered in The Daily Signal. “The undersigned ask that you oppose cloture on the Respect for Marriage Act unless the Lee amendment is added to the bill,” the letter says. “The free exercise of religion is absolutely essential to the health of our Republic. We must have the courage to protect it.” Continue here... 

Senate takes step toward codifying same-sex marriage

 By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press: Published November 16, 2022 WASHINGTON (BP)—The U.S. Senate took the first and an apparently decisive step Wednesday (Nov. 16) toward codifying same-sex marriage into law with the aid of more than one-fifth of Republicans in the chamber. Senators voted 62-37 to invoke cloture, as the procedural move is known, and thereby bring up for a final vote the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA). All 50 Democrats and 12 Republicans voted in favor of the motion, which needed 60 votes to succeed. The bill would repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and require federal and state recognition of same-sex marriages considered legal in the jurisdiction where they took place. The Senate is expected to vote soon to approve passage of the RMA, which will require only a majority and will serve as a watershed, congressional redefinition of the institution of marriage if enacted. The House of Representatives approved the RMA in July, when 47 GOP members joined al

Tennessee Church Votes to Disaffiliate from UMC over Homosexuality Debate

By Milton Quintanilla - Posted at Christian Headlines: Published November 3, 2022 A Tennessee congregation voted to leave the United Methodist Church on Sunday due to the denomination's longstanding schism on homosexuality. On Sunday, Christ Church Memphis voted to disaffiliate from the UMC after a final tally of 941 voted in favor of leaving, while 101 opposed and one abstained. Miles Stevens, director of communications for Christ Church Memphis, told The Christian Post that the vote was prompted by "decades of failed efforts to reconcile firmly held foundational but oppositional beliefs among member churches within the UMC." "We believe that disaffiliation from the United Methodist Church is the best path forward for Christ Church as we seek to proliferate the Gospel and make disciples," Stevens said. He also noted that the church's next steps are "yet to be determined" and that the congregation still has to receive the final approval of the v

Rosaria Butterfield: "I Reject the False Teaching of Revoice/Side B Theology"

 Posted at Truth Over Tribe: My name is Rosaria Butterfield, and I choose the truth of Biblical Christianity over the tribalism of Side B/Revoice theology. What Is Truth? The Bible is Truth, both in word and in substance. When one passage of scripture may seem unclear to us, we interpret it in light of the clarity of God’s unified Biblical witness.[1] There are no problem passages in scripture. In His image, God created human beings ontologically as men or women. Our sexual difference is part of our origin and eternity. We bear the image of God in purposeful pattern. “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them’. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.’” Genesis 1:26-28 This magisterial passage, known as the Creation Ordinance, reveals that God established men and women for the normative and

Transgenderism: A Biblical View

 By Rev. Brian Schwertley - Posted at Sermon Audio: Our topic: transgendered. Transgendered, what does the Bible say and we have multiple texts and I'll get to those in a minute. Very popular movement in our day. Currently in the United States, the United Stated federal government, many large corporations, Hollywood, the entertainment industry, as well as the mainstream media has been advocating a new philosophy regarding sexuality called the transgendered movement or the transgendered rights movement. The basic idea is that what one really is regarding one's gender or sex is not determined by one's physical gender or sex at birth. For example, one is born either a male or a female, male chromosomes, hormones, biology, sex organs, etc., or female, female genetics, hormones, physiology, sex organs, etc. But rather one's true sex or gender is something that one thinks or determines autonomously in his or her own mind. You could be some masculine man but if you think you&#

House passes same-sex marriage bill with GOP help

By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press: WASHINGTON (BP) – The U.S. House of Representatives voted July 19 to codify same-sex marriage into law with the help of one-fifth of its Republican members and to the chagrin of Southern Baptist leaders. With all the Democrats and 47 Republicans voting in favor, the House approved the Respect for Marriage Act in a 267-157 roll call. The proposal would repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and require federal and state recognition of same-sex marriages considered legal in the jurisdiction where they took place. If enacted, the measure would essentially place into federal law the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision that legalized gay marriage. The legislation still needs to receive approval in the Senate, where it faces the challenge of a 60-vote requirement to gain action on the floor. Read more...

Christians Must Protest Pride Parades and Their Violent, Sodom-like, Riotous Stonewall Origin

By Grant Van Leuven - Posted at The Place for Truth : Published June 9, 2022 During this month, as the LGBTQ+ community annually parades its banner colors they blasphemously hijack from God’s noahic covenant, [1] Christians will benefit revisiting Genesis 19:1-25 [2] ( as Carl Trueman has recently called for such posts in this World Magazine article ). Here, God visited Sodom and destroyed the sexually wicked majority while mercifully rescuing the righteous remnant within it. Look to Lot as your example of righteous living amidst wickedness. Lot responded to the angels’ presence exactly like his uncle Abraham, with reverence, deference, supplication, faith, and obedience. While in the midst of a diseased orchard of wickedness, yet Lot grew and produced different fruit while righteously grieving over the filthy debauchery of his neighbors ( 2 Peter 2:7-8 ). As God’s chosen, Christians must carefully choose how to live where they live. You are not to be anything like those living

The indelible conscience and a month of “pride”

 By Kevin DeYoung - Posted at World : In case you haven’t heard, June 1 no longer marks the end of the school year or the unofficial beginning of summer. It’s the start of Pride Month. Initially conceived in 1970 to commemorate the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots , Pride Month has become a government-promoted, corporate-sponsored, 30-day celebration of LGBTQ acceptance and achievements. When rioters threw bricks and tried to burn down the Stonewall Inn in New York City’s Greenwich Village with police officers barricaded inside, even the most optimistic gay liberation proponent could not have dreamed that an illegally operated, Mafia-owned gay bar would eventually join the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon on the select list of protected national monuments. Pride Month is at once a brilliant marketing strategy and a striking reminder that the conscience is a terrible thing to waste. By linking gay liberation to “pride,” LGBTQ advocates—and it’s worth mentioning, that the f

Church of Scotland Minister: ‘Bible must give way to modern ideas on same-sex marriage’

 Posted at The Christian Institute: An openly homosexual Church of Scotland Minister has claimed Scripture does not have the final word on sexual ethics. On BBC Radio 4’s Sunday programme, Revd Scott Rennie said that scriptural teaching against same-sex acts should be reinterpreted in the light of contemporary thinking. Rennie was being challenged by fellow minister Revd Professor Andrew McGowan over the Kirk’s recent decision to allow ministers to conduct same-sex weddings in its churches. Read more...
