introduction:
Tolerance is the buzz word ricocheting around politically correct circles over the past few years. What that really means is that all political, philosophical and theologically correct viewpoints must be tolerated, and any other viewpoints must be mercilessly squelched. The bottom line of this whole rhetoric is that the Christian viewpoint is hateful and must be silenced.

Behold a White Horse

 

Price R 249.00

 

  
The final world dictator seeking global domination will also be an “Assyrian” who is here characterized by a bow, riding a white horse. It is interesting how many confuse this counterfeit with the rider of the white horse in Revelation 19. In chapter 6, however, this rider is among some very bad company!
“Behold a White Horse” explores the career of the first of these “Four Horsemen” who seems to have at least 33 titles in the Old Testament and 13 in the New Testament and the common term “AntiChrist” really isn’t one of them. We also explore the only physical description of him in the Scripture!
• Why is he a “mistaken identity”?
• How do we know this is NOT the Christ?
• What is the precedent condition(s) for his appearance?
• What is the precedent condition for the unsealing of the Seven Sealed Book? What is the Seven Sealed Book?
• Is his “bow” a pun? How? Why?
• How can he “go forth to conquer” if he is a “peace maker”?
• Is the Church on the earth at this time? How do we know?
• Is He alive today? How do we know?
• How can he be the “Seed of the Serpent”?
Join Chuck Missler as he looks at the first of the Five Horsemen.

Myths of Eschatology

DVD

 Myths of Eschatology

Price 199.00

 

Description

Eschatology is a part of theology concerned with the final events of history, or the ultimate destiny of humanity. This concept is commonly referred to as the “End Times” or “Last Days”. In this field of study, there is a minefield of disinformation, misunderstandings and myths concerning many future events:

  • The Rapture
  • Does the Church go through the “Great Tribulation”?
  • Is there a literal “Millennium”?
  • Does the Church “replace” Israel?
  • What happened to the Davidic Covenant?
  • Is everyone in Heaven equal?
  • Under grace, does behavior matter?

Dr. Chuck Missler sheds light on these and some of the widely accepted myths surrounding some of the most important events on our horizon.

Pope shocker: Promotes socialism, likens Jesus to ISIS

 
‎Today, ‎May ‎20, ‎2016, ‏‎3 hours ago | Cheryl ChumleyGo to full article
Pope Francis

Pope Francis

Pope Francis, in an interview with the French newspaper La Croix, suggested a likeness between ISIS and Jesus by explaining that while “the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam,” it was quite possible to interpret certain passages of the Gospels, particularly in Matthews, as a call for Christians to go forth with this “same idea of conquest” in their discipleship.

He also faulted the free market for driving poverty, saying economies need “a state to monitor and balance them;” gun manufactures for fueling wars; and the failures of Christians in Europe to properly assimilate with Muslims as causing much of the tensions of recent times – ostensibly, to include acts of terror.

His specific words, according to an English interpretation of his comments: “Today, I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam. It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.”

He also said “co-existence between Christians and Muslims is still possible,” citing his own growing years in a country “where they co-habit on good terms.”

And he pointed to the many instances he’s personally experienced when Muslims have formed long lines just to attend Christian events.

“[I’ve seen] Muslims come to venerate the Virgin Mary and St. George,” he said. “Similarly, they tell me that for the Jubilee Year, Muslims in one African country formed a long queue at the cathedral to enter through the holy door and pray to the Virgin Mary. In Central Africa, before the war, Christians and Muslims used to live together and must learn to do so again. Lebanon also shows that this is possible.”

He then underscored his belief that all are equal in God’s eyes, and that all seek the same dignities – and because of this, religion and politics must be kept separate.

“States must be secular,” he said. “Confessional states end badly. That goes against the grain of history. I believe that a version of laicity accompanied by a solid law guaranteeing religious freedom offers a framework for going forward. We are all equal as sons (and daughters) of God and with our personal dignity. However, everyone must have the freedom to externalize his or her own faith. If a Muslim woman wishes to wear a veil, she must be able to do so. Similarly, if a Catholic wishes to wear a cross. People must be free to profess their faith at the heart of their own culture, not merely at its margins.”

Francis, who’s been a vocal supporter of the rights of refugees to resettle in Europe and America – and who has outright called on the United States to open doors to more immigrants and refugees – also said “integration” was a key component of ensuring Muslims and Christians peaceably co-exist.

“We need to speak of [national] roots in the plural because there are so many,” he said. “In this sense, when I hear talk of the Christian roots of Europe, I sometimes dread the tone, which can seem triumphalist or even vengeful. It then takes on colonialist overtones. … Yes, Europe has Christian roots and it is Christianity’s responsibility to water those roots. But this must be done in a spirit of service, as in the washing of the feet. Christianity’s duty to Europe is one of service. … Christianity’s contribution to a culture is that of Christ in the washing of the feet. In other words, service and the gift of life. It must not become a colonial enterprise.”

e then drifted into a denunciation of capitalism, before returning to “the migrant issue,” and speaking of the need to integrate.

“Coming back to the migrant issue, the worst form of welcome is to ‘ghettoize’ them,” he said. “On the contrary, it’s necessary to integrate them. … I am thinking here of Pope Gregory the Great, who negotiated with the people known as barbarians, who were subsequently integrated. This integration is all the more necessary today since, as a result of a selfish search for well-being, Europe is experiencing the grave problem of a declining birth rate. A demographic emptiness is developing. In France, at least, this trend is less marked because of family-oriented policies.”

But on capitalism and the notion of free markets?

First, he called wars the work of “arms manufacturers,” and suggested if that industry did not exist, peace would prevail.

“The deeper question is why there are so many migrants now,” he said. “The initial problems are the wars in the Middle East and in Africa as well as the underdevelopment of the African continent, which causes hunger. If there are wars, it is because there exist arms manufacturers, which can be justified for defensive purposes, and above all, arms traffickers.”

Francis then faulted unemployment, particularly in Africa, on the failure of those with the means to invest and provide jobs. And that, he went on, is due to the failures of governments to intercede.

Bluntly, he denounced capitalism, calling into question a “world economic system” he claimed had “descended into the idolatry of money,” the newspaper reported.

Francis then said this, to La Croix: “The great majority of humanity’s wealth has fallen into the hands of a minority of the population. A completely free market does not work. Markets in themselves are good, but they also require a fulcrum, a third party or a state to monitor and balance them. In other words, a social market economy.”

The 21-year-old Yazidi Iraqi, like 400 other people, is being offered sanctuary by a German church under a tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages. The practice of religious asylum had been largely forgotten until last year when a massive influx of migrants led some churches to offer safe haven to vulnerable asylum seekers.

By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - The occupation of a Massachusetts Roman Catholic church to prevent its closure will end now that the Supreme Court has declined to hear the case brought by people who have held their ground for 12 years, the Friends of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini said on Monday. "We made this deal with the lower courts that we would vacate the premises within 14 days of the Supreme Court decision," said Jon Rogers, a leader of the Friends' group. "From the very beginning we have promised to exhaust every avenue of appeal available to us and we have now done that." The occupation dates back to the early days of the U.S. clergy sex abuse scandal when the Archdiocese of Boston decided to close and sell some 70 churches to cover its legal costs.

The cases centered on a federal requirement that nonprofit religious organizations, such as a church charity, participate in the process of offering free coverage of contraceptives to their female employees. The justices decided not to reach for any grand legal theory, either about an undue burden on religion or a compelling government interest in women’s health care.

1501 Ballet of Chestnuts – a banquet held by Cesare Borgia in the Papal Palace where fifty prostitutes or courtesans are in attendance for the entertainment of the guests.

 

The Banquet of Chestnuts, known more properly as the Ballet of Chestnuts, refers to a fête in Rome, and particularly to a supper held in the Papal Palace by Cardinal Cesare Borgia, son of Pope Alexander VI on 30 October 1501. An account of the banquet is preserved in a Latin diary by Protonotary Apostolic and Master of Ceremonies Johann Burchard (it is titled Liber Notarum), but its accuracy is disputed.

 

The banquet was given in Cesare's apartments in the Palazzo Apostolico. Fifty prostitutes or courtesans were in attendance for the entertainment of the banquet guests. Burchard describes the scene in his Diary:

 

 

 

 

On the evening of the last day of October, 1501, Cesare Borgia arranged a banquet in his chambers in the Vatican with "fifty honest prostitutes",called courtesans, who danced after dinner with the attendants and others who were present, at first in their garments, then naked. After dinner the candelabra with the burning candles were taken from the tables and placed on the floor, and chestnuts were strewn around, which the naked courtesans picked up, creeping on hands and knees between the chandeliers, while the Pope, Cesare, and his sister Lucretia looked on. Finally, prizes were announced for those who could perform the act most often with the courtesans, such as tunics of silk, shoes, barrets, and other things.
