Ukraine: Christians Threatened with Firing Squads, Pastors Held Hostage Reports are surfacing that rebels are threatening churches, interrupting services and even holding pastors hostage in eastern Ukraine...

Religiously Omnigender Bathroom Justice
Recently Harvard Divinity School posted signage outside one of its bathrooms advertising it as transgender/omnigender friendly. The sign inclusively included icons for male, female, and a combo of the two, plus handicapped. Harvard Divinity proudly tweeted its embrace of gender fluidity.

“Awesome!” tweeted Reconciling Ministries Network, the unofficial LGBTQ caucus of United Methodism. Awesome indeed.

Albert Mohler: Faith on Earth—The Urgent Mission of Theological Education ...Consider the current predicament of Christianity. We are witnessing the inglorious end of a civilization birthed by the Christian faith. We are tracing the accelerating secularization of our own society. In the Middle East, Christianity is disappearing on the ground.

Cultural Christianity is disappearing as fast as a morning mist, providing the church the opportunity and challenge to make clear once again the radical difference between the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the wisdom of the world...

Men have back-burners at roughly twice the rate of women, the study found. But among both genders, the practice is widespread: On average, respondents in relationships said they had romantic or sexual conversations with two people (!) besides their current partner...
