God’s Not Dead…at the Box Office
By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.
4/4/18

In the late 1800s, Horace and Daeida Wilcox, decided to create a nice, quaint Christian community in southern California. It would serve no booze, and it would even give free land to churches (at least Protestant ones), so that righteousness could be proclaimed.

By 1903, the bustling little city had enough voters—-166 men—-to officially incorporate. It was called Hollywood.

ReligionKELLEIGH NELSON on Follow-up Easter Thoughts

Joy Cometh In The Morning
by Kelleigh Nelson

And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,  Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.  —Matthew 20:17-19

ReligionEASTER SPECIAL: How Jesus Might Look Back at the Cross

Easter special: How Jesus might look back at the cross
by Rev. Austin Miles
2018

(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.)

The Legalization Of Deviant Behavior
by Dave Daubenmire

America has undergone a radical transformation and the average American is oblivious to what has occurred.  As the average “Deplorable” laments the decline of this once great nation very few have a deep understanding of what has actually occurred.
