Multnomah is set to publish a book entitled, "God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships." It's written by Matthew Vines, a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist.
Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, compares the controversy to "another World Vision," referring to the relief organization's recent trouble with accepting homosexuality.
God uses death to give us life; despair brings hope; sickness gives way to health; misery shows us joy. God has placed us on the earth amongst that which is the exact opposite of what His love and goodness are, so that we can know by comparison His love for us.
Can we truly know light if we do not experience darkness? Can we really know true love if we do not know what hate is?
While it may rattle some fans of the book, Christian philosopher and apologist William Lane Craig encourages followers of Jesus to proceed with caution when studying NDEs and, in particular, Heaven is for Real. In a podcast dedicated to the issue, Craig says:
"My concern is this: Christians, in their enthusiasm for the glimpse of heaven that is offered in the book, may begin to base their view of the afterlife and of heaven on these sorts of experiences rather than on what the Bible teaches."
While Colton's story might have us crying in the bathroom after the film, NDEs are often inconsistent with one another.

Her story also is being told in "Trapped in Hitler's Hell," a new project from WND Books, and in a WND Films documentary by the same name that explains how the winds of Nazism swept through Germany and scorched the continent with the blood of millions.
The documentary, according to Director George D. Escobar of WND Films, tells a story that is more than a history, a profile or a biography. It will be introduced at the conference.
"It's rare to see two people, Anita Dittman and [conference organizer] Jan Markell, so much in synch with one another," Escobar said. "Their collaboration produced a timeless book and now a documentary.

According to a report  in March by the Israeli daily Haaretz, Israel continues to prepare for a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. Quoting anonymous members of the Knesset who were present during hearings on the military budget, officials in the Israel Defense Force (IDF) have allegedly received instructions to continue preparing for a strike and a special budget has been allocating for that purpose. However, conducting a military operation against Iran's key nuclear facilities would be a challenging task for the Israeli military. The distance from Israel to the Iranian nuclear sites is such that any strike using the air force would be challenging on its fuel capacity. Allocating tanker planes to the mission could alleviate part of this concern. Nonetheless, Israeli jets can't spend too much time in Iranian airspace before the mission itself is in jeopardy. Engaging Iran's air force in dogfights must be avoided. Therefore, surprise will be a necessary element in a successful Israeli mission.
Conservative sage Dr. Ben Carson is claiming the White House was offended by his now-famous keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast and asked at the time for an apology call to President Obama -- which he didn't make.
The anecdote is found in Carson's upcoming book "One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future."
"I think it's rather unfortunate that the IRS has this huge role in the Affordable Care Act because it's always controversial," said Mark Everson, a former IRS Commissioner. "Then, to tie it up with this very controversial domestic law, it just makes the job tougher," he said.
"I think you can take issue with the way ACA was paid for. But, the fact of the matter is, it's sustainable over the long run," said Yvette Fontenot , a former Senior Policy Director at the White House Office of Health Reform.
In this commentary, we provided evidence to show that Warren and Tony Blair were partnering together with the Roman Catholic Church in the formation of a P.E.A.C.E. Plan that leads towards the formation of a global religion in the name of Christ for the cause of peace. Documentation for this premise can be supported by numerous statements that both Warren and Blair have made publically from messages they have given or articles that have been written explaining their ideas.
While many who read that commentary doubted or denied such a Warren-Rome connection, a new YouTube interview with Rick Warren and Raymond Arroyo of EWTN (published and posted on Apr 11, 2014), reveals the statements we made about the Warren-Rome partnership were accurate prophetic warnings with regard to what would happen in the future.
The YouTube description of the interview with Warren and Arroyo states:
By CAROLINE GLICK—
Passover, which begins on Monday night, is the festival of freedom.
The holiday reminds us of the brutal enslavement of the Jews by Pharaoh and the Egyptians. We recall their midnight flight from Egypt, pursued by the mighty Egyptian army, and God's miraculous rescue of the Jews at the shores of the Red Sea. We remember how Moses led them for 40 years in the desert, and taught them what it means to be a nation, and what it means to be free.
