Rocker John Cooper, Lead Singer of Skillet, Rebels Against Relativism and Campaigns for Truth

3/27/2022
To say appearances are deceiving just doesn't describe the total persona of John Cooper, lead singer of the Rock group Skillet, a band that has performed with the likes of Aerosmith and Metallica. Cooper, a Grammy nominated, multi-platinum musician, looks more like a hardcore biker-- tattoos, black leather et al-- than a Bible thumping theologian. But there you have it. His book, "Awake and Alive to Truth" is a conviction of modern society that preaches truth is something you make up for...

Rick Green and Lt. Colonel Allen West: Biblical Citizenship Through Understanding the American Constitution

3/20/2022
Being a good citizen is everyone's civic responsibility. But if you are a Christian, you are first a child of the Living God, made in His image. How can those two things work together? Because the Holy Bible and our Constitution are closely related, says Rick Green, founder of the Patriot Academy, who's also known as the American Constitution Coach. He says, the founding fathers did more than just "breathe the atmosphere" of spirituality, "They were studying the Bible every year. There was a...

Ukraine and the Spiritual War Behind the Actual War

3/13/2022
Is a Holy War over religion and politics the real impetus for Russia invading Ukraine? Former Ambassador for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback believes it was probably a huge factor, largely downplayed or ignored by Western officials.

3/6/2022
As members of the National Religious Broadcasters meet this week in Nashville for their annual convention, they are doing so under a cloud of challenges the Church has not seen in centuries.

Pastor Max Lucado on John 3:16, One of the Most Important Verses in the Bible

2/23/2022
For Christians, the entirety of the Bible hinges on a short verse in the Gospel of John in the New Testament; John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." It pretty much sums up the narrative of God's plan for redeeming the entire human race and the whole of creation, rescuing them from the Fall from Grace, and the evil now rampant in our world because of it.

2/13/2022
This week, closing arguments are scheduled in Finland at the trial of a Paivi Rasanen, a member of parliament, that may be a test case for whether quoting the Bible could be considered hate speech deserving of a crime.
