Even as ISIS forces slaughter Christians and Muslims throughout Iraq, Syria and North Africa — and plot new attacks against the U.S., Israel and Jordan — there is a dramatic new development in terms of the organization’s leadership.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of ISIS, has been seriously woundedin an airstrike in Iraq.

Now a new leader has emerged, apparently based in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the site of the ancient ruins of Nineveh.

“The Islamic State’s temporary leader is a former Iraqi physics teacher located in the country’s second-biggest city, Mosul,” reports Newsweek, based on an interview with “the adviser to the Iraqi government on ISIS.”

Last month, “it was reported by the Guardian that the terror…

America is on the wrong track. Washington cannot fix all that ails us. We need to pray. Will you commit to an urgent time of prayer May 15-23?

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

MayDayAmerica is on the wrong track. Almost 7 in 10 people believe this. Only 26% of Americans think we’re going in the right direction. In fact, only 37% believe America’s best days are still ahead of us. And the situation is growing critical. We’re not just in a season of decline. We are facing implosion.

Washington cannot fix all that ails us. We need to humble ourselves and pray like we’ve never prayed before.

On my recent book tour in the U.S., I had the opportunity to address those attending the final dinner of the National Religious Broadcasters convention. My topic was “Three Existential Threats Facing America.” Rather than go through every reason our nation is in trouble, I highlighted three I find among the most serious.

Not long after that event, I traveled to Asheville, North Carolina, where Anne Graham Lotz and I taught a seminar through the Old Testament book of Joel…

Enough Of the Handwringing About ‘Young People Leaving the Church’

Zwinglius Redivivus

  1. It isn’t your Church, it’s Christ’s.  They aren’t leaving you, they’re leaving him.
  2. If they have sense, at some point in their lives they, like the prodigal son, will come to realize what they have left behind.
  3. If they don’t have sense, but instead stay away, don’t fret.  If they had been of us they would have remained with us.
  4. If you think you can entice them in with gimmicks, you’re wrong.  As soon as the gimmick is over, so will be their ‘commitment’.
  5. The Church is the body of Christ.  He can wash it and scrape off the unnecessary weight whenever he likes.
  6. If you think that changing the form is all the world wants of you, as soon as you do that, it will next demand that you change the substance as well.  And when you do that, you cease to be the Church and become instead the…

Should Christians expect to know God’s will by means of feelings and intuitions?

WINTERY KNIGHT

There are two views on the topic of decision making and the will of God. The view you learn in the church is called “the traditional view”. I call this view the feelings/intuition view. This view that elevates feelings / intuitions to the level of divine communications from God. The more practical view is called “the wisdom view”. I call this view the battlefield commander view. I am a proponent of the wisdom / commander view.

Let’s learn about the two different views:

[The traditional view is] that God has a plan for our lives and that we receive guidance through methods such as “open and closed doors”, “feeling led” and “the still, small, voice”.

[The wisdom view] holds that God does not have an “individual will” for our lives, but rather that all of God’s will can be summed up within two categories, God’s sovereign will and God’s…
