By Talia Wise December 13, 2021 Actor Denzel Washington does not mince words when it comes to his faith in God. And in a recent interview with the New York Times, Washington reiterated that he is a “God-fearing man” while also warning people to not become too self-focused. “This is spiritual warfare. So, I’m not looking at it from an earthly perspective,” he said in the interview. “If you don’t have a spiritual anchor you’ll be easily blown by the wind and you’ll be led to depression.”

The Christian cold war will mean an increase in church splits, takeovers, and other power struggles as people choose sides on existential questions, including theology. Along with the rest of the country, American Christianity is in the middle of a cold war. As this war heats up, it will mean church splits, takeovers, fights over denominational resources, and other power struggles as the Donald Trump era has increasingly brought clarity and pushed people to choose sides on existential questions. The Southern Baptist Convention, the United States’ largest Protestant denomination, is one key example of this dynamic affecting American Christianity as a whole. On Oct. 1 in The American Conservative, Jackson Waters and Emma Posey reported on new developments in that denomination’s growing ident...
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called for the Church to “wake up” if the “woke assault” is to be defeated in the United States, promising during his speech at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference on Friday that a “revival is coming.” Cruz’s address to the crowd of Christian conservatives gathered for the national evangelical grassroots organization’s annual conference held this year in Kissimmee, Florida, centered around two messages: the need to “defend America” and a coming revival. “If we are going to defeat the woke assault, then all of us need to wake up,” the staunch conservative said, followed by applause from the crowd. “The slumbering Church needs to wake up…,” Cruz continued. “We need to wake up. We need ...
Egyptian-American Pastor Michael Youssef has issued a strong condemnation of “woke” pastors within evangelical churches, warning that spewing far-left ideology from the pulpit is “deadly as far as the Gospel of Jesus Christ is concerned.” In an interview with The Christian Post, the 72-year-old pastor of the 3,000-member Church of The Apostles in Atlanta, Georgia, recalled how, as an Episcopal priest in the 1980s, he watched with dismay as the mainline Episcopal denomination slowly moved away from biblical principles, eventually voting to approve same-sex marriage in the denomination. But in recent years, Youssef told CP that he’s seen the same subtle bend toward leftist ideology slowly permeating the wider evangelical church. “Those same battles that I fought in the mainline denominations...
A 1,500-year-old Greek inscription bearing the name “Christ, born of Mary” was unearthed in northern Israel, the Antiquities Authority announced on Wednesday.

In an interview posted to social media, Black Lives Matter (BLM) Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors, along with BLM Los Angeles Co-Founder Melina Abdullah, discussed the “spiritual” component of the movement, explaining the practices and “rituals” performed to remember and “invoke” the spirits of deceased African Americans.
John MacArthur, the pastor of Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, told the “Todd Starnes Show” on Wednesday that the state threatened to lock him up for 90 days and slap his church with a $1,000 fine for holding indoor church services, but he said that he is not going to let the threat interfere with his mission.
Many states currently have imposed illegal restrictions on church gatherings, limiting them to no more than a certain number of people to attend in person. In Nevada, that limit is 50 people.
“St. Joseph’s Church … was vandalized this week, as an unknown individual or individuals painted ‘satanic’ and ‘anarchist’ symbols on its doors,” reports the New Haven Register.
Pastor John MacArthur and the elders of Grace Community Church say they plan on defying Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order banning indoor worship. And their prayer is that other congregations across California will join their cause.
Father God, we lift up White House Press Sec. Kayleigh McEnany to You. We are so thankful for her faith in You. Give her strength and endurance and fill her with joy, strength and thankfulness. (Col 1: 3, 11)
By Michael Patrick, Ph.D. Dear Friends, I write from here on the Baltic Sea coast, where the Covid threat has eased. Masks are no longer required. Shops are open and life is slowly returning to normal. I am in quarantine following my recent visit to the United States. What did I find there?

Setting aside conspiracy theory explanations, it doesn’t take a conspiracy when consensus openly serves the purpose of fueling uprisings.
