Mike Huckabee said on his show recently that only about 40 million of the 80 million evangelical Christians in America are even registered to vote. Only about half of those actually vote in presidential elections and only half of them, about 10 million, vote in midterms like the important election coming up Nov. 4. His numbers seem pretty accurate according to various sources, yet nearly 80 percent of Americans say they're Christians.
Reporter Sharyl Attkisson's new book, "Stonewalled: My Fight For Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama's Washington," goes into detail about the insertion of viral monitoring software into her computer. It's a problem she has only spoken vaguely about in the past. It turns out more than just her computer was compromised, as described in a lengthy summary by Erik Wemple at the Washington Post:
Drawing on its vast experience with arid lands, Israel will help California fight back against the worst drought in its recorded history, which has dealt a death blow to local agriculture.
Israeli knowhow will help California better cope with the devastating outcome the severe draught plaguing the West coast behemoth, which is said to have cost to the state's economy at least $2.2 billion and left 500,000 acres fallow.
One scenario is that it will be Elijah and Enoch, under the notion that since these two men are the only two who did not actually die and went straight to heaven or "to be with God," they will come back again in order to die; because the Bible states that all mankind will die at least once. Of course, Enoch was not a Jew as he lived pre-Abraham.
Voters should challenge the administration's views on Election Day
Do the Democrats agree with what Obama administration officials are saying about Israel and its leaders? Do they also concede that a nuclear Iran is inevitable? If not, will they call on the President to identify and fire the persons making these assertions? These questions should be asked—and answered—before Americans head to the polls next Tuesday.
Obama hates Israel. He hates Netanyahu. And their continuing presence in Washington D.C. reminds him of his inability to transform American foreign policy. Their very existence humiliates him.
He knows that directly lashing out at Israel would alienate the Jewish supporters he still needs.
NOTE: This ministry is happy to see a revival of things Jewish but we also believe some go too far in keeping the law, the Torah, etc. Balance is needed. -- OTM
Messianic congregations and Messianic-related activities are increasing in popularity, along with their celebrations of the Hebrew feasts and festivals and the blowing of the shofar.
While this may seem unusual, the historical and biblical evidence demonstrates that following Yeshua (Jesus) was initially an entirely Jewish concept!
If you wanted to create a religion that almost everyone would love, how would you do it? Perhaps you would change your faith to make it more appealing to a modern world that is changing at blinding speed. Perhaps you would indicate that you are willing to become more "mainstream" on hot button issues such as gay rights. Perhaps you would invite leaders of other religions from all over the planet to come visit you and make it clear that you consider all of those religions to be valid as well.
NOTE: This is a stunning move by the SBC leader. One of our radio guests this weekend, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, talks about the success of this kind of therapy to set the captives free. If this is a Southern Baptist Church policy, we fear they are in serious trouble. -- OTM
Southern Baptist leader Russell Moore denounced reparative therapy at a conference here, saying the controversial treatment that attempts to change a person's sexual orientation has been "severely counterproductive."
Moore, who serves as president of the Southern Baptists' Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, spoke Tuesday to a group of journalists covering the group's national conference.
'It was an assassination attempt. This is very serious'
