Many up and coming evangelical leaders pride themselves on eschewing politics. They look on the religious right of the eighties and nineties with disdain and that generation's near covetous relationship with access and power and the new evangelicals have decided to go the opposite direction.
For most of them, instead of finding some moderate balance, they have overcorrected in the opposite direction and are just as sinful in their pride of eschewing politics as their predecessors were for coveting earthly power at the expense of advancing the kingdom.
I would assert that these young, emerging voters are in love with an idea they think is tailor-made for their generation ... Socialism. Sadly, they do not know the historical significance of what that system has done in the world, nor do they realize how it will actually impact them. They only know that it promises to unburden them from an alarming financial future.
A former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under the Obama administration says Hillary Clinton should "step down" from the presidential race to clear the way for the probe of her private email server by the FBI.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports in an exclusive interview that Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn (USA-Ret.) thinks the former secretary of state – "for the good of the country" – should quit her run for president and "let this FBI investigation play out."
""We saw this mass migration, this people movement, which is a historic people movement of Muslims from Islamic nations tending to be the most radicalized nations -- from those nations into nations that are known as Western Christendom," said Rep. Bachmann during a Feb. 6 interview on the Understanding The Times with Jan Markell radio program.
Darby is a favorite target for every non-pretrib activist with a blogger account, as well as a string of published anti-pretribulational writers. They claimed no one prior to Darby ever taught a "dual-phase" Second Advent, much less the pretrib rapture. Most accused Darby of being influenced by the unstable Margaret MacDonald or Edward Irving.
Here's a typical example from Robert Van Kampen's website:
'Crash of 2016' could dwarf bank crisis that triggered economic recession
The prospect of recovery in global equity markets remains dim, given economic projections indicating the price of oil worldwide will remain at or below $30 a barrel for the remainder of 2016, suggesting global equity markets may be on the precipice of an historic sell-off that could end up with the "Crash of 2016."
Such a crash could dwarf the bank crisis that triggered a global economic recession at the end of President George W. Bush's second term in office.
Listen to our February 6 radio program with Michele Bachmann where these issues are discussed here.
I have noticed that several fault zones around the world are strangely long overdue in producing a major earthquake. The San Francisco bay area; the U.S. Pacific Coast and southern segments of the state; Tokyo, Japan; Jakarta, Indonesia; the holy city of Jerusalem are all on borrowed time. I can only guess that God is storing up wrath for the Tribulation hour. It is my hope that believers living in the Pacific Northwest will soon be transported to a higher ground that no tsunami can reach.
Hallmark, America's largest greeting card company, has stirred controversy over a Valentine's Day ad campaign that features gay couples talking about their romantic relationships.
The company launched the social media marketing campaign last month, stating that they wanted "to celebrate romantic love of all kinds."
Known as #CareEnough, the series of video ads posted to YouTube include two same-sex couples, one being two men with a daughter and the other two women.
This is a righteousness issue, and it is shameful for ministers of the gospel to bless a candidate who stands for a woman's "right" to shed innocent blood in the womb (through all nine months of pregnancy), who aggressively supports the redefinition of marriage and who calls for the changing of cherished religious beliefs.
Shame on those who partook in this ceremony.
This is not the time for the Gog-Magog war as Israel will be dwelling without fences then.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would like to "surround all of Israel with a fence" to keep out Palestinian and Arab enemies – "wild beasts," as he called them.
