Placating the Religious Heathen Will Result in Greater Christian Persecution

Pope Gregory’s correspondence with Augustine, as reported in Bede’s History of the English Church and People, provides us with a classic example of those who profess to represent the Christian faith, but who’s understanding of the Covenant of Grace and redemption go far astray. Augustine asks a series of questions of the Pope, one of […]

Pastor in Dundee, Scotland to Tony Miano: You’re Not Helping, You’re Harming and Crying Wolf

I ask all who follow Cross Encounters Ministries and/or visit this website to pray not only for me, but for Christians around the world that are facing various forms of persecution, most far more serious than what I experienced in Scotland, as they lovingly and boldly proclaim the gospel to a lost and dying world. […]

Christians Provoking Sinners to Sin

Nowhere in Scripture are Christians taught to provoke sinners to sin. Yet that is exactly what these well-meaning (I hope) professing Christians were doing. This is not living as a witness – which is what we are to do, it is provocation, something we as Christians should never practice. Too often, Christians are attacked not […]

Forfeiting the Favor of God

It can hardly be said that today the world hates the church with a violent hatred. Particularly in these United States the world rather slights the church. It regards the church with a benevolent tolerance as a harmless, perhaps even somewhat helpful, but not overly useful institution. That attitude itself casts a serious reflection upon […]

Five Friends of Freedom

From Our Baptist Heritage: In I Corinthians 9:19, we see a paradox that Paul presents to the Corinthians. He was free from all men while being bound to all men. His freedom related to his position as an apostle (I Corinthians 9:1- “Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen […]

The Benefit of Watching A Beheading

I mentioned recently that I had witnessed an online beheading of a professing Christian at the hands of muslims. Please note that I did not say ‘radical’ Islamist. That would be silly and redundant, since all muslims, if they truly believe Islam, are radical. Anyway, and for the record, there was a benefit to watching […]

Harold Camping Responsible for Massacre of Christians in Vietnam

Harold Camping’s false prophecy from earlier this year caused hundreds of Hmong people to be slaughtered. Below is a new report from Jacob Prasch in the actual region describing how it happened: FALSE […]

Christian Living In A Muslim Home?


The Case Of Rev. K.J. Stewart

A constitution may be set aside by the political necessities of men in power; houses and towns may be destroyed under military necessity, and vested rights may be disregarded by men who seek to gain or maintain empire for the public good. But no cause can ultimately succeed, whose leaders openly disregard the rights of […]

“Neighbors” – When Historical Differences of Tribe, Race & Religion Lead To Violent Conflicts

Yesterday, the New York Times published an article concerning a massacre that took place in Jos, Nigeria, “a hotbed of ethnic and religious violence near the dividing line between the country’s mainly Christian south and Muslim north.” Reportedly, over 300 Christians were killed, “mostly women, children and the aged.” According to the report, one of […]

“Brit Hume dared to violate the dogmatic canons of modern secular humanism, and he did so in the very Holy Place of secularism… the media.” – James White and in case you missed the original broadcast of Hume’s statements…. ..and if you’d really like to see the humanist media attack Christianity, check out this all […]

U.S. Teachers Forced To Hide In Closets To Pray

Some school teachers are literally hiding in closets on school property in order to pray, and thus avoid contempt of court charges. This is not happening in China, nor in an Islamic country where such stories are common. This is happening here in ‘the land of the free’ – in America, and more specifically, in […]

A testimony of Dr Daniel Wong, a professor at The Master’s College, who faced persecutions as a Christian first hand from Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution in China.

J.C. Ryle: Why Were Our Reformers Burned?

J.C. Ryle THERE are certain facts in history which the world tries hard to forget and ignore. These facts get in the way of some of the world’s favourite theories, and are highly inconvenient. The consequence is that the world shuts its eyes against them. They are either cut dead as vulgar intruders, or passed […]
