…so says Reb Bradley at World Net Daily.
The new Catholic archbishop of New York City Timothy Dolan has recently noted that New York is increasingly Spanish speaking. He has committed himself to shepherding and evanglizing the Hispanic/Latino population that has tended to gravitate toward Pentecostal and Evangelical expressions of Christianity.
A new Barna study reveals that most American Christians don’t hold to some of the basic tenets of historic Christianity.
Only 35% believed that Satan is a living being rather than a mere symbol of evil. 8% were unsure.
Fifty-eight percent agreed with the statement that the Holy Spirit is “a symbol of God’s power or presence but is not a living entity.”
This question is not a good one because traditional orthodox speaks of the Holy Spirit as a “Person” and not as an “entity”. I imagine that many were confused.
The real zinger is that 22% believed that Christ sinned while one earth! 17% agreed somewhat. This demonstrates a true failure in American congregations to communicate the biblical faith.
The Iowa Supreme Court ruled last Friday that gay marriage was a constitutional right.
Earlier this week, Vermont legislators overturned a veto of a gay marriage bill.
So comes the revolution. Sigh.
There’s a new article from Life Site News suggesting that Pastor Rick Warren has caved to liberals on the issue of same-sex unions. I’m not fully convinced that this is the case, but he does seem to be growing soft with respect to key issues facing Christians in America.
Don’t know whether you heard about this
but Denzel Washington and his family visited
the troops at Brook Army Medical Center , in
San Antonio, Texas (BAMC) the other day. This
is where soldiers who have been evacuated from
Germany come to be hospitalized in the United
States, especially burn victims There are some
buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher
House is a Hotel where soldiers’ families can stay,
for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying
on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled
most of the time.
While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave
him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build.
He took his cheque book out and wrote a cheque for the full amount right there
on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear
this story and want to get the word out to the American
public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it
and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous
antics and Denzel Washington’s charity
doesn’t even make page 3 in the Metro section of
any newspaper except the local newspaper in San
