Could you imagine being fined $250 every time you have your friends come over to watch football? Could you imagine having the government authorities take you to court over a Friday night card game? Well, down in Venice, Florida authorities are cracking down on Shane and Marlen Roessiger for holding a Bible study in their home on Friday nights. The meetings consist of at most 10 people gathering for a time of prayer and Bible study, but authorities in Venice insist that this is a "zoning violation" and Shane and Marlen Roessiger are being threatened with a fine of $250 per meeting. Sadly, this is not the first time something like this has happened. The truth is that authorities all over America are seeking to suppress home Bible studies and other expressions of the Christian faith. It isn't enough that they have essentially removed every trace of Christianity from (Read More....)
On April 3rd, 1965 legendary radio host Paul Harvey issued a warning to America. In this warning, he detailed what he thought the devil should do if the devil wanted to keep destroying the United States. Sadly, the truth is that most of this stuff has come to pass. What Paul Harvey saw for America's future back in 1965 if the devil had his way was eerily accurate. Please share this with as many people as you can....
If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States.
I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.”
To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”.
In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct.

The 13-story, $100 million Islamic mosque that is slated to be built just two blocks from ground zero in New York City has been making a ton of national headlines over the past week, but the truth is that this is far from an isolated incident. Islam is rapidly growing and is gaining tremendous influence inside the United States. 50 years ago, there were very few mosques inside the United States and Muslims were a very, very small minority. But today all of that has changed. Even as Christianity is losing millions of adherents in the United States, Islam is experiencing explosive growth. The Council on American-Islamic Relations says that there are 7 million Muslims inside the United States in 2010, and huge new mosques are going up from coast to coast. Each year, increasingly large numbers of Muslims immigrate to the United States both legally and illegally. But Islam is not just growing through immigration. All across America, substantial numbers of Americans are converting to Islam each year, and this is particularly true in U.S. prisons where radical Islam has found a ready-made pool of disaffected young men to exploit. The danger signs are there. Are we going to start paying attention to them?
The following are 12 signs that show (Read More....)
For decades, the United States has been thought of as a "Christian nation" around the globe. But today that is dramatically changing - especially among America's young people. The truth is that all of the recent polls tell us that Americans under 30 years of age are rejecting the Christian faith in unprecedented numbers. In fact, what the numbers reveal is not a slow move away from the Christian faith. Rather, they clearly portray a massive wave of young Americans running away from traditional Christianity as fast as they can.
For example, a shocking new survey by LifeWay Christian Resources shows that the vast majority of young adults in America today do not go to church, do not pray and do not read the Bible.
Just consider a few of the results from this incredibly troubling survey of 18 to 29 year old Americans....
•65% rarely or never pray with others, and 38% almost never pray by themselves either.
•65% rarely or never attend worship services of any kind.
•67% don't read the Bible or any other religious texts on a regular (Read More....)
