    Why We Need the Manifest Presence of God

    The debate about cessationism vs. continuism—meaning, whether all the gifts of the Spirit are still in operation today—is not just an abstract theological debate. It is often a matter of life and death, and as I heard some testimonies during a recent ministry trip to Canada, I was reminded of how critically important it is to have […]

No More Masks! (for doers of dark deeds)
September 3rd, 2013 | Christine Colbert

Pope John XXIII once observed that the world “must mature to the place that we will no longer tolerate war.” Surely many — if not yet all of us — would raise a loud “Here, here!” to this wisdom. There’s something so sinister, so utterly bewildering about those scenes we’ve all sorrowed to see on […]

The Moral and Intellectual Bankruptcy of the Pro-Abortion Movement
August 11th, 2013 | Michael L. Brown

In the wake of a rising tide of pro-life sentiments and sensibilities in America, the utter bankruptcy of thepro-abortion position is being revealed, especially in its more militant forms. The pro-abortion side is now faced with: The beautiful reality of 3-D and 4-D ultrasounds, making clear that the fetus in the womb is really a carefully formed, developing […]

Should the Catholic Church Ordain Gay Priests?
July 31st, 2013 | Michael L. Brown

The recent comments of Pope Francis have created a media feeding frenzy. What exactly did he mean when he said he would not judge gay priests? Is he now condoning homosexuality? And is he softening the stance of his predecessor, Pope Benedict, who wrote that men with deep-seated homosexual tendencies should not serve in the […]

The Apostle’s Interior Life (by Bryan Anthony)
July 31st, 2013 | Bryan Anthony

“Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…” -Rom. 1.1 We are inclined to read right over the richness of language that Paul uses in the introductions to his epistles. Modern man is unfortunately accustomed to casual greetings; formalities required to structure a letter rightly- verbiage […]

Time to Talk, Not Fight: A Response to John MacArthur’s Ministry
July 30th, 2013 | Michael L. Brown

On July 25, Fred Butler, writing on behalf of Pastor John MacArthur, posted an article on the Grace to You website in response to my recent articles on CharismaNews. With a desire to be constructive rather than combative, I write this response, calling once again on Pastor MacArthur and his team to sit down face to face […]

JOHN MACARTHUR, STRANGE FIRE, AND BLASPHEMY OF THE SPIRIT
July 22nd, 2013 | Michael L. Brown

Pastor John MacArthur has announced a “strange fire” conference to be held this October, claiming that part of the charismatic movement “offers to God unacceptable worship, distorted worship. It blasphemes the Holy Spirit. It attributes to the Holy Spirit even the work of Satan.” If these charges are true, this means that many leaders in […]

Hijacked Messiah (by Christine Colbert)
May 11th, 2013 | Christine Colbert

Down the many centuries, how this twisting of His plan? From Israel’s own leaders, moved by fear and jealousy to crucify While He walked with us — yet among the common people He was The most popular Rabbi of all time! (But God was not surprised) – To the innumerable times the “church” or those […]

Sex Symbols Who Speak in Tongues
February 10th, 2013 | Michael L. Brown

I was at the grocery store the other day when I was unexpectedly confronted with an adult-oriented magazine located right next to the vitamin section. I immediately had to look away from the front cover, which featured a scantily-clad, seductively-posed, sex symbol. Yet it was only a few weeks ago that I read an article […]

AN INAUGURATION TO MAKE ORWELL PROUD
January 20th, 2013 | Michael L. Brown

It was bad enough for the White House to disinvite a pastor from praying at President Obama’s inauguration because he expressed orthodox Christian views in a sermon delivered almost 20 years ago. But to disinvite him in order to reflect “this administration’s vision of inclusion and acceptance for all Americans” is enough to make George […]

What’s Right and Wrong With American Christianity
January 10th, 2013 | Michael L. Brown

As I prepare to spend a week teaching the book of Jeremiah to Chinese pastors in Hong Kong, I’ve been reflecting on the strengths and weaknesses of the Church in America. Regrettably, the list of negatives is longer than the list of positives. To be clear, though, I’m speaking of the circles in which I […]

The Greening of the Fig Tree (by Christine Colbert)
December 14th, 2012 | Christine Colbert

The sacred text refers to Israel as “the fig tree” in Joel 1:7 and again in Hosea 9:10, among other places. Knowing that this metaphor for Israel was established by Scripture in ancient times clarifies Jesus’ apparently out-of-character “cursing” of the fig tree — and also His revelation about key signs of the last days […]

Not “Too Small a Thing” (by Christine Colbert)
November 14th, 2012 | Christine Colbert

The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This is from the Lord and is His doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.    Psalm 118:22,23 (AMP) The Book of Psalms, comprising lyrics that were set to music, and essentially poetry, provides some of the most beautiful passages in the sacred text. Psalm […]

On With the Revolution!
November 7th, 2012 | Michael L. Brown

I am not in the least bit discouraged with the outcome of the presidential elections, and I write these words with faith in the presence of God. Without a doubt, I have grave concerns about where our nation could be heading under four more years of President Obama and I grieve over the steady erosion […]

A Warning to Moral Conservatives
November 6th, 2012 | Michael L. Brown

If Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, Dick Morris, Michael Barone and others are right and Mitt Romney is our next president, we moral conservatives cannot take our foot off the gas. We cannot let up in our advocacy for life and family. We cannot relax or shift into neutral as if some great victory has already […]
