Wisconsin Christian school to open at site of former strip club

The site of a shuttered strip club in Wisconsin is being transformed into “a place of life and light and hope and joy” as it eventually becomes a Christian school, part of which will be opened later this month. The former Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen’s Club, located in a strip mall in Trenton, roughly 40 miles north of Milwaukee, will soon open as the Ozaukee Christian School. Officials purchased the strip mall this year and plan to make what used to be a strip club into a…

Response to Christianity in crisis

Gwendolyn Haddad Spring Valley, MN This is a response to Greg Rendahl who wrote about conservative Christianity in crisis, published August 26, 2019.  Immigration: The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America helped legal immigrants settle in communities. Christians are called to help the foreigners who obey the laws of the country they settle in. One law of any country is to enter that country through a legal process. God does not honor lawlessness, but order. Socialism: Mr. Rendahl misuses the Golden Rule (Matthew 7:12). We…

Lose Your Faith at an Evangelical College? That’s Part of the Process

It was quiet in the morning chapel when a Bethel University student took a pen and paper and put words to the fear: “Does God really love me?” Then another student at the small evangelical school in Mishawaka, Indiana, took another piece of paper and wrote, “Am I good enough?” Three students wrote, “Can a loving God send unbelievers to hell?” Six asked, “Why does God answer some prayers and not others?” Twelve: “Is Christianity the only way?” Twenty: “Is God really real?” Shawn…

Man claims Christianity as defense in illegal immigration conspiracy

It’s not rare for a defense attorney to tell a judge his client is a good man. A religious man, even. It no doubt happens at sentencing hearings in courtrooms across the country every day. But here’s a twist. The attorney for an O’Neill man in his 70s — indicted in a conspiracy to harbor illegal immigrants following a raid last year — wants to raise a sort of Good Samaritan defense at his jury trial in September in a case involving his interactions…

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin will have a Christian wedding says uncle Stephen Baldwin

Hailey and Justin Bieber are planning a traditional, religious wedding for their September ceremony, according to the model’s father. “As Christians and as believers, they understand that if you don’t have God’s spirit working in your marriage, then it makes it more and more difficult to make it work and have peace and find happiness,” Stephen Baldwin told TMZ about the Biebers’ South Carolina wedding plans, video of the interview shows. JUSTIN BIEBER LEADS WORSHIP, SHARES ‘VULNERABLE’ TESTIMONY AT LA CHURCH Baldwin caught up with the gossip site on his…

Fox & Friends Guest Blames Mass Shootings on the Decline of Christianity

A Fox News guest on Sunday blamed America’s rising gun violence on the decline of Christianity after a mass shooting in West Texas left at least seven dead and 22 others injured this weekend. The deadly massacre, which began at a traffic stop between Odessa and Midland on Saturday afternoon, has intensified pressure on GOP lawmakers to enact stricter gun control measures. The attack came just weeks after a gunman opened fire in Dayton, Ohio, killing nine with an assault weapon and another stormed…

Sweden Grants Christian Asylum-seeker Aideen Strandsson Refugee Status

CBN News had learned that Sweden’s Migration Agency decided to grant Aideen Strandsson refugee status and residency in Sweden. A source said that ‘refugee status’ is a stronger verdict in Aideen’s favor than being granted asylum. Strandsson came to Sweden from Iran in 2014 on a work visa and adopted a Swedish last name. She left Islam and became a Christian in Iran after seeing a video of Muslims stoning a woman to death and then having a dream about Jesus. When she arrived…

The Fate of Hong Kong’s Christians

Christians in Hong Kong overwhelmingly support the mass protests that have disrupted the region for the last two months. Millions, including many Christians, have taken to the streets to protest a proposed extradition bill.  Hong Kong’s legal independence was a hallmark of the “one country, two systems” agreement made between Hong Kong’s former colony, Great Britain, and the People’s Republic of China in 1997. This principle allows Christians in Hong Kong to enjoy religious freedom. However, Hong Kong citizens fear that this extradition bill…

Two-Thirds Of US Christians Think They Don’t Need Church

A Gallup poll published this year found that Americans’ trust in clergy is at an all-time low. Doctors, teachers, police officers, and even funeral directors all ranked as more trustworthy than pastors. While I’m not sure what shenanigans an undertaker would have to pull to lose this surprisingly lofty reputation, it’s clear that suspicion toward ministers isn’t merely an aftershock of recent scandals. It’s part of a much larger anti-institutional swing in American religion — one that’s left an unprecedented number of Christians convinced…

Do Not Store Up Your Treasures On Earth

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19) Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,…. Meaning either treasures that are of an earthly nature and kind, the more valuable and excellent things of…

Powerful Testimonies – Salvation Through Jesus

Atheist, Muslims, Satanist, Gangsters, Strippers, Drug Addicts, Homosexuals, and myself all have one thing in common. We sin. No sin is too big for Jesus. He died on the cross for all of us. You have the winning ticket already. Redeem that winning ticket by asking the Lord Jesus Christ to come into your heart. Ask him for forgiveness and to change you from the inside out. There is no gift on earth that compares to the gift or eternal salvation. For God so…

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…
