ReligionJERRY NEWCOMBE on Easter Church Bombings

Inside the Coptic Church Bombings
By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
4/19/17

As we all know, on Palm Sunday, two bombings at Coptic Churches in Egypt killed nearly 50 persons and injured 120 others.  I heard about two of my relatives-in-law, who were near enough to hear and feel the blast at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Alexandria. Even though they had returned for a vacation in their native Alexandria and had even been married at St. Mark’s, they are thankful that they providentially chose to worship at another church that particular morning.

ReligionBook Exposes IRS 501c3 Church Scam

The Communist-George Soros Democrats running the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have managed to bully churches into becoming partners with them by the creation of the 501c3 (Not-for-Profit) status. This action pushed churches to incorporate themselves as franchises of the United States in order to avoid taxes they never owed in the first place. Don’t forget that last sentence.

ReligionEASTER SPECIAL: How Jesus Might Look Back at the Cross

(Note to Readers: In the late 1990’s a church prepared to produce an Easter Program, with several chosen to play the parts of those who had been with Jesus during the Crucifixion as they reflected on that event. When this writer was asked to “be Jesus” the answer was no,  since no-one is worthy to portray Jesus. It DID seem right to present how Jesus might give His thoughts and what He might say instead of actually pretending to BE Jesus, so the writing began. The reception of it was so strong that it was decided that it be written for publication where it also received solid approval, so much so that it became an annual Easter Feature since in publications throughout the world.)

ReligionJERRY NEWCOMBE on Easter and Guilt

Easter and the Persistence of Guilt
By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
4/12/17

Recently (3/31/17), the New York Times had an article by David Brooks with a title that caught my attention: “The Strange Persistence of Guilt.” Why do we feel guilty and what can be done about it? I’m writing during Holy Week 2017, and as a Christian I’m convinced that Good Friday and Easter Sunday hold the solution to removing guilt.

ReligionCalifornia Declared Sanctuary STATE! Muslims Rejoice

The creases of grief etched in his face could not be concealed. Normally cheerful, he ran a men’s clothing shop in a California mall. Expressing concern while asking about it, “Alfred” said he had just received a phone call informing him that his best friend in Egypt had been murdered, thrown to his death from the window of his apartment to the concrete below. All in the name of Jizah, or, Dhimmititude.
