Students evangelizing their peers during spring break

It’s that time of year when thousands of students are spending spring break on the beach. While most of the stories are about alcohol-fueled parties, some Christian students are using the opportunity to share Christ.

As they have for decades, Cru or Campus Crusade for Christ is training students to evangelize during spring break.

Presbyterians follows ‘prevailing winds’ instead of Bible, says member

Members of the Presbyterian Church (USA) have voted to change the definition of marriage to include same-gender marriage.

The president of the Presbyterian Lay Committee, Carmen Fowler LaBerge, says she is deeply grieved.

“I view this as a demonstration of the denomination’s complete accommodation to the prevailing winds of culture and a direct repudiation of the scriptures of both the Old and New Testament,” she tells OneNewsNow.

Top Obama aide to address Israel group opposing Netanyahu

Read the story.

stop wasting time on pushing the “absurd” idea of establishing a Palestinian state,

A conservative activist says the White House needs to stop wasting time on pushing the “absurd” idea of establishing a Palestinian state, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly doesn’t see as a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

According to the White House, President Obama still believes the best solution is for Palestinians to have an independent state. However, Gary Bauer thinks he understands what Netanyahu wanted to be understood when he clearly stated – on the eve of Tuesday’s elections in the Jewish nation – that he opposes the creation of a separate Palestinian state.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)”In my view what he was really saying is you can’t have a Palestinian state if you don’t have a Palestinian leadership that is prepared to accept the right of Israel to exist,” the president of American Values tells OneNewsNow.

Bauer, a longtime supporter of Israel, says it’s time for the Obama administration and assorted European governments to stop wasting their diplomatic efforts on forcing something in the Middle East that can’t possibly happen under current circumstances.

Who truly was Saint Patrick

IS ST. PATRICK’S DAY, JUST IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T HEARD! THERE ARE A LOT OF MYTHS ABOUT THIS MAN NAMED PATRICK. MANY OF THEM ARE IRISH MYTHS.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM IS FOUND IN HIS ONLY SURVIVING HANDWRITTEN WORK KNOWN AS HIS “CONFESSION.” PATRICK WAS AN ADMITTED PAGAN WHEN HE WAS CAPTURED BY ENGLISH SLAVERS. HE WAS TAKEN TO IRELAND AND SOLD INTO SERVITUDE. WHILE THERE HE SAID HE PRAYED AND RECEIVED THE GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD IN JESUS CHRIST AND WAS SAVED. HE MANAGED TO ESCAPE AND GET BACK TO ENGLAND BUT HE FELT A CALL OF GOD ON HIS LIFE TO RETURN AND SHARE THE MESSAGE OF THE LORD WHO SAVED HIM. THIS HE DID, LEADING UNTOLD NUMBERS TO CHRIST.

Prof resigns after student who got IV injected during class passes out

In retrospect, the former University of Nebraska at Omaha professor said, her student could have used PowerPoint to aid his speech on “How to Insert an IV.”

The adjunct professor, Suzanne Carl, said she used poor judgment when she allowed the student to inject a saline solution intravenously into another student during a speech class this month. The student giving the speech had medic training in the Army, and the other student volunteered to take part and get an IV during the speech.

But the volunteer passed out and vomited after the demonstration.

GOD DOESN’T WANT MATT CHANDLER TO BE YOUR PASTOR

These days, you can pop in your ear buds and instantly listen to some of the best preachers out there. If you want some passionate preaching, you dip into Chandler or Piper. If you want loads of grace you listen to Tullian Tchividjian. If you want a Scottish accent mixed with beautiful Biblical exegesis, you listen to Alistair Begg. If you’re feeling really wild and crazy, you listen to old Mark Driscoll sermons. I’m a big fan of podcasts, and I’m grateful for the glut of wonderful resources available to me.

But the massive availability of fantastic preaching presents a problem as well. It can tempt us to be discontent with our own pastors. We can think, If only my pastor could preach like Matt Chandler. If only my pastor was as grace-centered as Tullian. If only my pastor could bring the Bible heat like John Piper. We wish that our pastors were as gifted as another pastor.

But God doesn’t want Matt Chandler to be your pastor (unless you happen to be in his church). God has placed your pastor in your church to care specifically for you. When your pastor is preparing his sermon, he’s preparing it for you, and God is specifically empowering him to prepare a sermon for you.

A Letter to Sports Illustrated From an 11-Year-Old-Boy

Sports Illustrated Magazine,

I am writing this letter because I am confused. Yesterday, I was at the mall with my dad because he needed to run some errands. We were having a fun time together. We bought some donuts and hot cocoa and were really enjoying our day. As we walked past a magazine stand, I saw your swimsuit issue. It took up more than one slot, and was right in middle of the other magazines.

I was shocked. I didn’t want to even see it, but it was right in front of me. There on the cover, was a lady in a two piece swimsuit. She was pulling down the bottom of her swimsuit and was almost showing her private parts. (And I do believe they should be private parts.)

I think this is harmful for children to see. My parents are careful about these types of things at home because they want to protect us. I wasn’t prepared to see this and felt like it was forced in my face. I know America stands for freedom and this is why you were allowed to put that lady on your cover, but why are you allowed to take away my freedom by forcing me to look at it?
I have been taught to respect women.
( Billy’s thoughts – Good for this kid. His parents have raised him right. We need more kids and adults like this 11 year old. Read the rest of the above letter. )
