As the memories of the fateful day of September 11, 2001 fade, President Donald Trump has signaled he is determined to make sure prayer plays a role in its remembrance. The President signed a little-reported proclamation last week naming Friday, Sept. 6 thru Sunday, Sept. 8 as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance to honor the victims who were killed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Prayer events continue this week in advance of Wednesday’s commemoration.

Almost 3,000 men, women, and children lost their lives when hijacked commercial aircraft crashed into the Twin Towers in New York City and at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The attacks led to ...

Could you even imagine a sports car with such a powerful, finely-tuned, rotary engine, whose rotor, drive shaft, and subunits work together so smoothly, that the engine can hit 42,000 rpm and achieve 100% energy efficiency? Well, no… as amazing as cars are these days, the best redline at 10,000 rpm and achieve below 50 percent energy efficiency, meaning that less than half of the power produced actually propels the car. The rest is emitted as wasted heat.

But… if automobile engineers could mimic the efficiency and power of the rotary engine that exists in every cell in our bodies? Well, watch out. Recently, an article was posted at the Discovery Insitute website summarizing three new studies of the enzyme ATP synthase. As they describe it, “ATP synthase is a high-tech, micromolecular power generator” that works like a rotary engine ...

California students remain in the bottom tier of academic excellence, ranking 44 out of 50 in the latest Best States survey by U.S. News and World Report. While they may not be faring so well with the basics, children as young as kindergarten are becoming experts in sexual relations, sexual orientation and gender.

All of this is a result of a concerted effort that has been underway for years (yet formalized with the 2011 passage of SB 48, the FAIR (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful Education) Act. The law mandates that students as young as kindergarten be taught about LGBT issues ...

A church in Chula Vista, California, was vandalized after its pastor openly criticized the city library’s decision to host Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) for young children. Chula Vista police are investigating the graffiti on the exterior walls of the South Bay Pentecostal Church as a hate crime, reported KGTV.

“Sure enough, at every corner there were phrases, hateful words, and graffiti on the walls of our church,” Executive Pastor Amado Huizar said, adding “there is no doubt” his church was targeted. Many of the symbols and messages sprawled on the walls were reportedly associated with Satan. According to the KGTV report ...

While pro-life activists watched and prayed, a woman was brought out of the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Manhattan for transport to New York Presbyterian Hospital.

The ambulance arrived at the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood located in a high-rise on narrow Bleecker Street near Margaret Sanger Square on August 22, 2019, at 10:03 a.m. Witnesses noticed that the ambulance turned off its siren about a block from the abortion business. The woman was wheeled out on a gurney partially covered with a sheet and was loaded into the ambulance.

The ambulance pulled away with flashing lights only, then turned on sirens when it was about a block away, as is usual for this particular Planned Parenthood abortion facility ...

The horrible massacre of 31 innocent people a few weeks ago in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, was staggering for Americans. Once again, we witnessed ghastly multiple murders. It is happening regularly, with no end in sight. Though it is heart-wrenching to recall, we must not forget the slaughter of 20 precious kindergartners and 6 adult staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School, or the killing of 12 teenagers and 1 faculty member at Columbine High School, just a few miles from our home in Colorado.

... It is impossible to overstate the anguish and grief suffered by hundreds of families and friends who have lost loved ones at the hands of wanton killers. And there are even more who are dealing with the trauma and pain of injury, both physical and emotional, stemming from these tragic events. Clearly, America is under siege, and the nation is rightly demanding answers ...

Many U.S. churches today have “forgotten” their purpose, becoming entertainment-driven social organizations eager to blend in with secular culture instead of focusing on biblical discipleship, Pastor David Jeremiah warned.

“The Church is coming under attack; it’s forgotten what the Church is supposed to be,” Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries, told The Christian Post. “We’re not an entertainment service; we’re not here to see how close we can get to what the world does. But there’s so much of the world in the Church and vice versa that we can’t tell a difference. We have to hold to the truth. We have to get nourished. If it’s not happening, you’re a social organization and not a church.”

Jeremiah, who also serves as senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California, explained that amid a nationwide decline in church attendance, far too many churches have become “obsessed” with ...

The Equality Act, a bill that would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as protected classes under federal civil rights law, would be “catastrophic” for Christians and churches if it becomes law, evangelist Franklin Graham warned.

Graham, in a recent op-ed for Decision Magazine, warned that the bill, which was introduced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in March, would grant the same protections afforded to racial minorities and women under the Civil Rights Act to the LGBTQ community, causing significant legal problems for ...

The LGBTQ community speaks loud and clear with marches, parades, protests, petitions and rallies to portray their various forms of sexuality as alternative lifestyles. They seek acceptance with the intent of including homosexuality as normal and even Biblical. The LGBTQ community wants the right to indoctrinate children with crossdressing and gender alternatives as a solution to their questions on their identity.

... If you dare to express your Biblical convictions against any aspect of their lifestyle, you will immediately receive negative responses, up to and including loss of employment, lawsuits, protests against your businesses, acts of violence and death threats. If you or your church are bold enough to step to the forefront and offer guidance and counseling for those that may want to step out of homosexuality or seek help in their gender confusion, you are breaking the law in some states and may find yourself behind bars or ...

The California Board of Education implemented progressive sex and gender education curriculum in public schools across the state, regardless, in some cases, of parental knowledge or consent.

Progressive groups, including Planned Parenthood, collaborated on AB-329 in 2016 and the recently introduced Health Education Framework in May as highlighted by a video created by the conservative group Our Watch.

Both these pieces of education legislation mandate that school districts require sex ed and encourage students to question their parents on sexual topics—topics explored in the kindergarten through 12th grade sex education curricula implemented in California schools.
