Some Evangelicals Are Abandoning the Term

Right after the presidential election last November, Pew Research reported that Edison Research’s exit polls showed that among those white Evangelicals who voted, 81% of them voted for Donald Trump. The Gospel Coalition demonstrates in an article that this figure is considerably skewed due to some poorly-stated questions asked in the poll. Yet experts would argue against the notion that a considerable majority of white Evangelicals who voted did vote for Trump. Is that because Donald Trump is an Evangelical… Read more

How to Fact-Check Flaky Theology with the Bible?

In just a few days, on October 29th, many millions of non-Catholic Christians will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On that day, in 1517, priestly monk Martin Luther posted his “Ninety-Five Theses” that came thundering down upon his church, the Roman Catholic Church. This document consisted of 95 sentences that mostly condemned the Church’s practice of indulgences and declared that salvation is a gift of God based on believing in Jesus as Savior.

Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) is regarded as one of the two greatest physicists and mathematicians in all of human history, the other being Albert Einstein. Newton is most known for formulating the laws of motion and universal gravitation. But Isaac Newton wrote more about Christian theology and alchemy (much of which is today regarded as genuine chemistry) than he did of science and mathematics, yet this has been largely unknown until recent decades. This public ignorance about Isaac Newton is… Read more

Secretary Tillerson responded, “I’m not going to address petty things like that.” That response appears to be a tacit admission that the report is true. NBC also reported that Secretary Tillerson “threatened” to quit his post. Recall that Tillerson… Read more

Days after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, San Juan’s Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz criticized the U.S. in its relief effort to assist Puerto Rico. (San Juan is the capital of Puerto Rico.) She was strongly supported in this accusation by U.S. army, three-star, retired Lieutenant General Russel Honore. The U.S. had just made him director of the its relief effort there in Puerto Rico.
