Christianity at risk: ‘Dramatic decline’ in Britain’s Christian identity – shock report – Express

It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.” MICHAEL MCAFEE AND LAUREN GREEN MCAFEE: IS THE BIBLE WORTH READING? Christianity is certainly not…

Last week, Ralph Reed, the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s founder and chairman, told the group, “There has never been anyone who has defended us and who has fought for us, who we have loved more than Donald J.

One of the greatest lines of evidence for the inspiration of Scripture is fulfilled prophecy. In Daniel chapter 7 God gave the prophet Daniel a vision of world history. Daniel saw a vision that focused on four great beasts. These beasts represent four great empires. Verse 4 reads, “The first (beast) was…

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?
