Irenaeus reports that Polycarp, a disciple of the Apostle John, once met the heretic Marcion in the street and Marcion asked, “Do you recognize me?” “Indeed,” replied Polycarp, “I recognize you as the firstborn of Satan!” Evidently, Polycarp was not interested in building bridges.

We are told that there is one Bible, and we Christians are supposed to love each other, so why have Christians split into 9,000 different denominations?
Homegrown barbarians have taken control of most of America while Americans, including Christians, only yawned with maybe a shake of the head in disgust.
Death penalty opponents have few arguments for their position; so, usually in desperation they whimper, “But more poor people are executed than wealthy people.”
When Christians disobey government, they must do so based on biblical principles, accept the consequences, and not whine about “suffering for Jesus.”
It seems the issues with the death penalty just will not go away. Arkansas had plans to execute eight convicted killers during eleven days in April before their lethal drug expires.
Damascus is the world’s oldest city, more than 6,000 years old, and it will be destroyed to the point of being a “ruinous heap.” Unattended sheep will wander in the streets with no one to shepherd them.
The fallout continues after the revelation that Vice President Pence refuses to be alone with a woman who is not his wife.
Radical women are attacking Vice-President Mike Pence for not having lunch with a woman without his wife being present. Nor will he go to an event that serves booze if his wife is absent.
No government entity has the authority to license, commission, accredit, and certify any Christian ministry–unless said groups go hat in hand asking for state or federal funds.
Trump must keep the promise he made at the prayer breakfast: “My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty.”
Fake news has been in the news lately for good reason–there is so much of it out there. The media moguls think they are the rightful gatekeepers of what the great unwashed populace need to know.
It is my desire to dispel the myths, delusions, superstitions, and lies that are circulating about Patrick.
All Americans should give Trump time to keep his commitments to all of us; we understand there are some things you can’t hurry, like producing a baby.
This week the media reported that U.S. Marines have been deployed on the ground in Syria at Raqqa, the hub of ISIS. That was a mistake in my opinion.
As a result of Martin Luther’s act, the Roman Catholic Church split like a ripe watermelon and the religious world (of Christianity) separated into Catholic, Protestant, and Others.
The famous English pastor Charles Spurgeon said, “A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.”
Rick, like most Evangelicals, seems to want a religion that is brief, bright, and brotherly but ended up with one that is meek, mild and motherly.
Christ spoke about an unjust judge in Luke 18 where a widow lady sought justice from a judge who “feared not God, neither regarded man.”
Last Wednesday, the Washington Post published an open letter from more than 500 “conservative evangelical pastors and leaders…urging President Donald Trump to reverse his temporary pause on refugee resettlement…”
Good, elegant dress does not mean that one has good principles or is a person you would want as a dinner guest. In like manner, because a person is very casual in his dress does not indicate he is without principles.
I’m concerned that if Trump’s presidency is wildly successful (some say even greater than Reagan’s) then those who opposed him might become objects of persecution and mistreatment.
President Donald Trump made it clear to the world during his Inauguration speech that from now on, the U.S. would make decisions based on the principle of putting America first.
My fellow Americans, to make America great again, I will lead this nation to implement the following principles, policies, and practices at home and abroad.
Normal people need to decide that we are in a battle and will take measures to win by refusing to do business with any business that supports any issue that is perverse or promotes abortion and other anti-family issues.
However, the innocence was experienced again the following night when I went to bed and saw two episodes of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” in color!
This calls to mind country singer Hank Williams, Sr. who held the world in his grasp then lost it all in the back seat of his Cadillac dying from a drug overdose on New Year’s Day, 1953.
Secretary of State John Kerry astounded, alarmed, and angered people around the world with his marathon speech dealing with the UN Security Council’s condemnation of Israel.
These churches advocate transgenderism, but normal sexuality is considered quaint. Other church groups are quickly coming to the same conclusion.
The U.S. is not at war with all Muslims but we are at war with jihadist Islam! Even German officials have finally recognized that fact.
