Researchers unveiled a rare 1,700-year-old letter that they said sheds new light into how early Christians lived.

‘The Bachelorette’ Is No Longer Hiding Its Christianity – The Daily Beast

On a recent episode of The Bachelorette, lead Hannah Brown tells suitor and contestant Luke Parker, “I have had sex, and, honestly, Jesus still loves me.” (Jesus was not available for comment.)

Understanding Progressive Christianity: A Historical Approach – LA Progressive

The God of Christianity is a Spirit who works in history. These interventions include Moses bringing the Jews out of slavery in Egypt and Jesus bringing salvation to the world. God spoke through the prophets, apostles and the Church and also through us (Luke 12:11-12). Spirit intervenes in the world through human beings. While there is terrible evil in the world, when we examine history closely we can see Spirit’s handiwork. While God works through all people of all faiths, the story of Western…

PEARRELL: Bible’s critics are threatened by its prophecy – Rockdale Newton Citizen

Before the July Fourth weekend, we were looking at the important subject of the Bible. The Bible is the most scrutinized work in existence today. In the first article we saw that the rejection of this work is more based upon personal experience than it is upon verifiable evidence. That is, most people reject the Bible either on the basis of since they haven’t witnessed a miracle, miracles simply don’t happen and since the Bible records miracles, we can’t believe its report. Or, since…

In Brooklyn, ‘tradpunk’ Christianity meets millennial counterculture – Religion News Service

(RNS) — A few weeks ago, I found myself at a goth garden party in Brooklyn, New York’s historic Green-Wood Cemetery with a few people I’d met on the fringe corners of what the internet often refers to as Weird Catholic Twitter (and its somewhat more sedate stepsister: Weird Anglican Twitter). The crowd was mixed. There were people involved in New York’s vintage clothing collecting subculture, some Brooklyn goths, and some of the organizers of the event, which was hosted by the Morbid Anatomy…

Figures published by the British Social Attitudes Survey reveal the widest ever margin between staunch atheists and believers who are certain that God exists.

The Jezebel Spirit and How it Operates

Without question, the nastiest, evil, most disgusting, cunning, and seductive spirit in Satan’s hierarchy has to be what many call the Jezebel spirit. What is the Jezebel spirit? The Jezebel spirit is not just one spirit like Satan is. This is a “type” of evil spirit in Satan’s kingdom. There is only one devil, one Satan, but there are many spirits that would be considered a Jezebel type spirit, as they all have a particular type of personality and a specific way in which…
