Ok, so let me get this straight: the Olympian Gold Medalist Bruce Jenner, who changed his name to Caitlyn in order to express himself as a woman is being criticized by the lesbian Ellen DeGeneres because he is a traditionalist when it comes to marriage and seems to have a problem with gay marriage. Hmm...Jenner's … Continue reading Ellen DeGeneres: Caitlyn Jenner Gay Marriage Stance Is ‘Confusing’

I believe several things dynamics are at work in the Huffington Post interview with T. D. Jakes. The interview was first posted on the Huff Post website on August 4. The topic of discussion was Jakes’ new book, then turned to the LGBT community and the black church.
After personally transcribing the interview myself, I tend to think that several dynamics were at play in the interview. First of all, I think two conversations were going on. The interviewer, Marc Lamont-Hill, academic, journalist, author, activist, and television personality and Distinguished Professor of African-American Studies at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, was looking for Jakes to endorse the LGBT community and to admit to an acceptance of homosexuality. Jakes, it seems to me, was trying to be benevolent with his “Jump the Broom” theology (if you don’t know what that means check out this post). The interview spurred what…

Jimmy Carter, who most people would say is the only President in modern times in the running with Obama for "Worst President" just proved one more time why he is a contender! Jimmy Carter: 'Jesus would approve gay marriage' | TheHill.
The picture that went viral (in this case think ‘disease’) of the White House splashed in the colors of the rainbow forces us to answer the following question: Can we look at the results of Obama’s time in office as the natural outcome of someone breaking into the White House control room, locking himself in, and messing with all the knobs until the adults come to stop him, or is this who we are now?
Had this recent event happened five years ago we might have suggested stronger locks on the White House doors. But America gave Obama a second term. Does that mean that this is who we are then? It certainly means that this is who we are officially. And to the extent that we can say that Americans are unable or unwilling to overturn the laws that have separated us from God, then I think we…

Few things are more sickening than listening to people speak disparagingly about the Church who themselves have no spiritual credibility to speak of; no right to touch or judge the body of Christ.
For Oprah to ask Rob Bell, “When is the Church going to get this” in reference to the normalcy of homosexuality, is nauseating. Rob Bell is practically blasphemous in this video. He is a prophet of some Church other than the true one. Error is one thing, but falsehood and treachery are different matters!
I have always said that I have never yet heard an atheist’s argument against the existence of God that was convincing, and even though much work went into this article (Christianity’s Nightmare Question), my statement remains true. These thoughts are not even a little worrisome for Christians, Sunday School teachers, or any genuine Christian. Why? Because the entire article is postulated from the standpoint of humanism: the “Me! Me!! Me!!!” infant cry of humanity as it focuses only on its self and what it deems worthy of God-speak! This article has all of the typical “Jesus was nothing new” rantings of someone who hates any idea of God. But once again, as sites like this always prove, atheists can’t seem to stop talking about God. Please don’t say it’s because you are trying to free people from some imagined spiritual tyranny, blah blah blah, because what you…

Imagine two cogs, one turning clockwise and the other turning counter-clockwise, and each representing a different paradigm (see illustration and footnote). 1
The cog on the left represents tradition or “what we have always done”; the staus quo. The cog on the right represents a significant challenge to the status quo. Assuming that the proposed shift is good or necessary, the optimum outcome would be that every person standing on the side of tradition, or what has always been done, would make the transition into the new paradigm.
The reality is that, any time there is a paradigm shift or significant change to the status quo, there are always people who get crushed “between the cogs” as it were. They simply cannot, or will not make the adjustments necessary to safely cross from status quo to…

Can this really be true? It all makes sense if you consider the path our nation is walking down. We have allowed freedom to be defined as “everything acceptable.” Everything except moral restraint and Christianity.
It is not surprising to see that this attempt at infringement on free speech is being made under the guise of a non-discrimination ordinance, particularly in the area of defending homosexuality. Homosexuality is the juggernaut of American liberalism.
The tide continues to turn against genuine Christianity. Jesus described the times that are quickly approaching when He warned in Luke 21:
10 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. 12 “But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to…

I am so tired of hearing diplomatic journalists and politicians declare that most Muslims are peaceful. That's what they say in order to appear fair-minded and avoid the tolerance police. When was the last time you heard any Muslim speak out passionately against radical Islam? Of course you can find peaceful Muslims. When you are … Continue reading Most Muslims Are Peaceful?
