Is The Debate Over? New Survey Discovers That Religious People Are Far More Likely To Be “Very Happy”

A shocking new public opinion poll seems to have settled the debate about whether religious people or non-religious people are happier.  In recent years, more people than ever are “throwing off the shackles of religion” in an attempt to find personal happiness, but it looks like they have been running the wrong way.  According to the Pew Research Center, Americans that are “actively religious” are much more likely to say that they are “very happy” compared to “the inactively religious” and those that are “unaffiliated”.  The following comes from Breitbart(Read More...)

“Between 6,000 and 10,000 churches in the U.S. are dying each year” – and that means that over 100 will die this week

America is littered with thousands upon thousands of church buildings that aren’t being used anymore.  As you will see below, between 6,000 and 10,000 churches are dying in the United States every single year, and that means that more than 100 will die this week alone.  And of course thousands of others are on life support.  All over the country this weekend, small handfuls of people will gather in huge buildings which once boasted very large congregations.  At one time, America was widely considered to be “a Christian nation”, but that really isn’t true anymore.  As an excellent article in The Atlantic has noted, even though most Americans still consider themselves to be “Christian”, the numbers are telling us a very different story… (Read More...)

The Dark Secrets Of The Catholic Church Are Starting To Come Out

Vatican St. Peter's Basilica - Public DomainWe aren’t supposed to talk about what goes on behind closed doors when the cameras are off and the public can’t see what is happening. There is corruption in virtually every large organization, but those that hold themselves out as “spiritual leaders” need to understand that they are going to be held to a higher standard than everyone else. And when those “spiritual leaders” greatly violate the trust that the public has put in them, the fallout can be absolutely devastating. In this article you are going to read about some things that are deeply disturbing. An immense wave of evil has swept through major religious organizations, and the Catholic Church is certainly no exception. (Read More...)

How An Entire Church Ended Up On An ISIS Kill List

Psycho - Public DomainOn Wednesday, I was contacted by someone on an ISIS kill list.  Of course there are probably lots of people out there that believe that “ISIS is after them”, but this particular individual and his wife were actually told that they are on an ISIS kill list by the FBI.  Not only are they on the list, but so is their pastor.  It turns out that ISIS has apparently been pulling names off of church directories on the Internet, and so now an entire church has ended up on an ISIS kill list.  In the past perhaps many of us would have been less alarmed by this, but the attacks in Orlando, Dallas, Nice, and Baton Rouge are all still fresh in our minds.  Innocent people are being targeted and killed just to make a statement, and nobody knows who will be next.

Do Demons Exist? Watch A Demon-Possessed Model Manifest A Spirit During A Live Television Interview

Skull Art - Public DomainDo demons really exist?  If you are not much interested in spiritual matters, this may seem like a very odd question to you.  Perhaps up to this point the only encounters you have had with “demon possession” have been in Hollywood horror movies.  The topic of “demons” just doesn’t come up a lot in our highly secularized society today, and even in most churches people don’t really want to talk about it even though the gospels are full of stories of Jesus casting out demons.  The things that you are going to read about below are quite disturbing.  Before the Internet, most people were simply not going to be exposed to these types of things because they weren’t about to pop up on the evening news or during prime time television programs.  But today, thanks to YouTube, things that happen to ordinary people on the other side of the planet can quickly go viral and be spread all over the planet.
