What the Bible Says, Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
A new survey finds a majority of Americans who believe that America is a “city on a hill” chosen by God to receive blessings and be used as an example in the world, also believe in a “replacement” conspiracy theory holding that immigrants are invading the U.S. in an attempt to replace the country's current culture.
Joe Biden may be the left's puppet on a lot of things, but abortion isn't one of them. In the past two years, the onetime March for Lifer has become a true believer in the fringe wing of his party, where destroying babies in the womb is concerned. His Justice Department (when it isn't trying […]The post Joe Biden is a Radical Abortion Activist and Unborn Children are the Victims appeared first on LifeNews.com.
It’s a simple Statement, written by the Psalmist Asaph long ago: “But it is good for me TO DRAW NEAR to God.” (Psalm 73:28) So true, yet so hard-to-communicate to Christians today.

Christian health workers and pastors navigate stigma at Apostolic, evangelical, and Methodist congregations.Yvonne Binda stands in front of the congregation, all dressed in pristine white robes, and tells them not to believe what they’ve heard about COVID-19 vaccines.“The vaccine is not linked to Satanism,” she says. The worshipers, members of a Christian Apostolic church in Zimbabwe, are unmoved. But when Binda, a vaccine campaigner and member of an Apostolic church herself, promises them soap, buckets, and masks, there are enthusiastic shouts of “Amen!”Apostolic groups that infuse traditional beliefs into Pentecostal doctrine are among the most skeptical in the southern African nation when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines, with an already strong mistrust of modern medicine. Many followers put faith in prayer, holy water, and anointed stones to ward off disease or cure illnesses.The worshipers Binda addressed in the rural area of Seke sang about being protected by the Holy Spirit, but have at least acknowledged soap and masks as a defense against the coronavirus. Binda is trying to convince them to also get vaccinated—and that’s a tough sell.Congregation leader Kudzanayi Mudzoki had to work hard to persuade his flock just to stay and listen to Binda speak about vaccines.“They usually run away,” he said. “Some would hide in the bushes.”There has been little detailed research on Apostolic churches in Zimbabwe, but UNICEF studies estimate it is the largest religious denomination with around 2.5 million followers in a country of 15 million. The conservative groups adhere to a doctrine demanding that followers avoid medicines and medical care and instead seek healing through their faith.Integrated into the Zimbabwe Heads of Christian Denominations (ZHCD) in 1993, the Apostolic ...Continue reading...
