Why Do People Leave the Church?

Zwinglius Redivivus

Someone asked me the other day, in a conversation we were having on a completely different topic, ‘why did so and so leave the Church?’

There are, as you can imagine, a lot of reasons usually given for why people leave the church but they all boil down to two basic reasons.

First, people leave the Church because – as Jesus explained in his parable of the seed – they have no spiritual depth and let other concerns dominate their lives:

“Behold, the sower went out to sow, and while he was sowing, some seed fell on the side of the path, and the birds came and devoured it. And other seed fell on the rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and it sprang up at once because it did not have any depth of soil. But when the sun rose it was scorched, and because it…

Media Slant: A Question of Cause and Effect

Consumers of the news, both from television and print, sometimes feel that they are getting not just the facts but also a sizable dose of ideological spin. Yet have you ever wondered about the root cause of the varying political slants of different media outlets?

Report: Journalists Are Miserable, Liberal, Over-Educated, Under-Paid, Middle-Aged Men

Today, the term ink-stained wretches is exactly one-third accurate.

Journalists aren’t quite so blotched from pens and printers, now that the newspaper die-out has wiped out 50 years of advertising gains in a decade. With cleaner shirts, less paper, and worse pay, we’re more like carpal-tunnel wretches. We’re older on average than we used to be, slightly more moral, and far more lugubrious about the future of our profession.

Here is the state of the American journalist, according to a survey from Indiana University.

For Justices, Free Speech Often Means ‘Speech I Agree With’

. . . “While liberal justices are over all more supportive of free speech claims than conservative justices,” the study found, “the votes of both liberal and conservative justices tend to reflect their preferences toward the ideological groupings of the speaker.”

Social science calls this kind of thing “in-group bias.” The impact of such bias on judicial behavior has not been explored in much detail, though earlier studies have found that female appeals court judges are more likely to vote for plaintiffs in sexual harassment and sex discrimination suits.

Lee Epstein, a political scientist and law professor who conducted the new study with two colleagues, said it showed the justices to be “opportunistic free speech advocates.”

Online ID System Would Allow Government Unprecedented Power To Control Your Access To The Internet

A White House dream dating back several years may soon become a reality: The idea of a single, secure online ID that Americans could use to verify their identity across multiple websites, starting with local government services. This idea that has been likened to “driver’s license for the internet”, and has also been described as both convenient and scary…….. Click here for full story

Oneness Pentecostalism: An Analysis (Not Your Grandpa’s Anti-Trinitarianism)

In this brief analysis, I would like to describe the movement known as Oneness Pentecostalism, identify its theological core, and explain what is at stake in arguments over Oneness doctrine. I will not cite Oneness authors at length nor interact with their arguments directly. Instead, speaking as an evangelical trinitarian to other evangelical trinitarians, I would like to recommend the strategic direction that evangelical engagement with Oneness groups should follow.

Can God Bless a Godless America? – Todd Starnes

Our nation stands on a precipice. Freedom hangs in the balance. We live in a postmodern and post-God nation. The perfect storm is brewing. Do not be deceived. There may be a war on religious liberty, but the true target is Christianity.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and Kelly Shackelford, president of Liberty Institute, penned an open letter to the American people last year. Hostility against religious liberty has reached an all-time high, they warned. The freedom of religion is being pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.

The ‘Brave German Woman’ and Europe’s Islam Question

Context: On November 10, 2013, a Muslim imam was invited to give the Islamic call to prayer inside the Memorial Church of the Reformation in the city of Speyer, Germany—a church dedicated to honoring Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation.

“When the brave German woman, whose real name is Heidi Mund, heard about the event, she prayed,” reports CBN News. Not sure what she would do upon arrival, she grabbed her German flag emblazoned with the words “Jesus Christ is Lord” and headed for the concert:

“Until the imam started with his shouting [“Allahu Akbar!”], I did not really know what to do. I was just prepared for what God wants me to do,” she told CBN News.

American Albatross

Where is your treasure laid up? Is it in the next Ronald Reagan? Gold and silver? A 401K with stock options? This age is coming rapidly to a close. Our current system is unraveling faster and faster and if you’ve placed your faith and trust in your own ability to provide a long, comfortable life, you’re going to be disappointed.

Satan can see the storm clouds gathering, so he’s instituting his plans with greater swiftness and ferocity. The fact that we are becoming irrelevant is only relevant as it pertains to how close we are to the end of this dispensation.

Decline of religious belief means we need more exorcists, say Catholics

The decline of religious belief in the West and the growth of secularism has “opened the window” to black magic, Satanism and belief in the occult, the organisers of a conference on exorcism have said. The six-day meeting in Rome aims to train about 200 Roman Catholic priests from more than 30 countries in how to cast out evil from people who believe themselves to be in thrall to the Devil.

7 Mass Surveillance Tools Your Local Police Might Be Using

Military-inspired technologies are coming home for use by local law enforcement.

Since 2001, federal grants from the Department of Homeland Security have been trickling to local authorities for counterterrorism efforts. But even years after 9/11, these agencies are shopping around for military-inspired surveillance tools that can keep watch on average citizens.

The rise of a surveillance state has raised questions about the legality of how law enforcement agencies acquire new technologies and inform the public of their use. Individual searches and seizures are protected under the Fourth Amendment, but laws addressing mass surveillance of the public are few and limited.

Citi: These 10 Technologies Will Utterly Transform The World

It’s a brand-new list from the one did they did last year.

“For the most part, when people think about disruptive innovation, technology is the first thing that comes to mind — smartphones, flat-screen TVs, MP3 players — things that have come on the market that have totally replaced products that we had and make us think, ‘How did we ever live without this wonderful machine?”” said Citi’s Kathleen Boyle. “But disruption can be so much more than just a better way to listen to music.”
