The god of evolution is process; process requires billions of years, and it assumes much. Somehow, an original atom came into being, possessing in itself all the potentiality of this cosmos and yet unconscious, a god as great as the Biblical God but conveniently without consciousness or a court! What a convenient God for sinners!
Feminism is essentially a false religion warring against historical Christianity. By a feminized faith, however, I refer not merely to the organized goddess religion of allegedly Protestant churches: this expression of feminist religion is obvious.
The church has never lacked would-be editors of God's word. Though they always profess the best of intentions, Paul characterizes them in a most unfavorable way. They have, he says, departed from the Faith, given credence to seducing spirits, surrendered to doctrines of devils, and characterized themselves by lies and hypocrisy. They have so given themselves over to false religion that their consciences are seared as a branding iron scars flesh.
Biblical Christianity is neither masculine nor feminine. But within the church, as in the family, God has called men and women to mutually affirming, though distinct, roles. And those roles require men to be men: taking a stand, speaking the truth, solving problems and making a difference in the world for Christ. And if we want men in the church, we have to have real men in the pulpit.
The difference between a teacher using covenant theology and a teacher using Arminian theology can be a very complicated and mystifying thing to the ordinary Christian. I have had experience with both of these theologies, and what follows is an illustration that will be easy to understand, but also painful for an unrepentant heart to accept.
Feminism is a radical movement. As such, it goes to the very root of the relationship between men and women and seeks to alter the societal and institutional structures that are perceived to be in conflict with the ideas and goals of feminism.
Okay, so Columbus was slightly off. We can fix that by calling the area where he landed the West Indies. But East or West, Indians are now coming to New York City, and thanks to you, we are here to greet them in the Name of Christ, Lord of all nations.
Those zany girls of NOW: Betty Friedan, Patricia Ireland, Eleanor Smeal, Schlamzao, Pots and Bets Incorporated. They are always good for a belly-holding, tear-wiping guffaw.
The sovereign Lord and Creator of all things visible and invisible advances his rule throughout time and history by means of the covenant, denoting that the God who created the universe reveals himself in history by laying down immutable ethical requirements, or law.
Today's typical Christian critique of feminism with respect to the family rightly insists that the mother belongs in the home but it fails to insist that the father also belongs in the home doing his work there with his wife as his helper.
What if the book of Revelation ought not to be interpreted as a history written in advance? What if, contrary to popular opinion, it is not concerned to provide its intended readers (regardless of whether these be ancient or modern) with detailed and specific predictions about the course of (relatively) future events? What if it is not intended as an account of the future (proximate or remote), if it does not refer to future-historical persons and happenings, if it is not meant to be read and understood as a detailed roadmap of things to come?
he so-called "year-2000" software bugs provide an extraordinary opportunity for Christian Reconstruction. Few problems are both clearly visible ahead of time and inexorably threaten the lifestyles of a billion people.
Two Frontline Fellowship mission teams have succeeded in delivering and distributing the largest shipments of Bibles and Christian books ever smuggled into an officially Islamic country.
Another month, another foreign enemy. No sooner had Washington's war party completed its hysterical attempt to demonize China — calling its burgeoning prosperity a threat to world peace — than it featured another country in the bulletin of the War-of-the-Month club.
St. Anselm is one of the great but neglected men in the history of philosophy. Anselm (1033-1109), born of a noble family in Aosta, Lombardy, made his mark in the culture of monasteries, and he later became Archbishop of Canterbury.
Over the centuries, and by no means any less in our time, errors and heresies have occurred in the church.
That's how feminists have often described the Bible. And they're right. It is patriarchal at the core and through and through. Like love and marriage, the Christian Bible and patriarchy go together: any attempt to dismiss the rule of men must begin by dismissing the Rule of God, i.e., the Holy Bible.
