(RNS) — The future of religion in America is young, non-Christian and technicolor.
Almost every Christian denomination in the U.S. shows signs of growing diversity as white Christians, once the majority in most mainline Protestant and Catholic denominations, give way to younger members, who tend to be of different races, according to a study released Wednesday (Sept. 6) by the Public Religion Research Institute.

President Donald Trump declared Sunday a national day of prayer for Hurricane Harvey victims. The president signed a declaration after he met with several faith leaders and evangelical ministers.
“As response and recovery efforts continue, and as Americans provide much-needed relief to the people of Texas and Louisiana, we are reminded of Scripture’s promise that ‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble,’” Trump said in a statement. “Melania and I are grateful to everyone devoting time, effort, and resources to the ongoing response, recovery, and rebuilding efforts.”
The president signed a statement declaring Sunday, September 3, as a national day of prayer. Continue reading →
“Gen. John Kelly was sworn into office at the White House Monday morning, taking the position of White House chief of staff. The ceremony was closed to the press, but photographers were called in afterward to mark the occasion. When asked for comment, President Trump said Kelly was “fantastic” and would do a “spectacular job” in his new position. Later in the morning, Kelly and Trump met with the president’s entire cabinet.” –Source
OK, this is just me thinking out loud, but let me run something by you that seems somewhat obvious to me. And by the way, and I am not kidding in any way when I say this, as I type this blog entry two black military helicopters literally armed with missiles on each side just flew over my home here in west central Indiana wherein here are no military bases out here in farmland. I wonder where they’re off to? They were about 30 seconds apart from each other heading due south. And as you read this, you might find this rather ironic. Continue reading →
First and foremost a Roman Catholic priest cannot exorcise any demons. The fact they invented the so called “exorcism” proves this hands down. What I mean is, when you look into the Word of God what do you see each and every time Jesus Christ cast out a demon? Do you see Jesus going to the person’s home dressed in black (the color of Satan, Hell & pain) with a Vatican approved contract for the parents to sign as well as a receipt booklet so as to give the parents a receipt each time they “pay” to have their child “exorcised” of the demon over the coming months and even years depending upon the wealth of the family and greed of the exorcist? No, whenever a person that was possessed by a demon got anywhere near to Jesus that person would be instantly freed of that demon! No money changed hands, no splashing of useless man-made holy water, no candles to fend of “negative” spirits, no burning of sage to help keep the demons away and certainly no prayers being repeated over and over and over again.

Oregon decided it will go along with the federal government’s tougher standards for driver’s licenses, so the state’s travelers may not have to show a passport to board a plane.
The state has missed a federal deadline for compliance with federal Real ID laws, so if the federal government doesn’t grant a fourth extension on the requirements, Oregon’s ID will not get you on a plane beginning Jan. 22.
Lawmakers are hoping their 56-1 vote in favor of Real ID for Oregon — in Senate Bill 374 — Thursday will demonstrate the state is making “serious and significant” progress and the feds will grant the extension.
If the feds grant an extension, Oregon’s current IDs will continue to work at the airport and federal facilities until the state begins issuing compliant IDs. Continue reading →
“President Donald Trump has held roughly 50% more meetings with foreign leaders than President Barack Obama did over the same amount of time in their respective first terms in office. A review of both presidencies reveals that Obama met with about 20 foreign leaders through July 6, 2009, not including international summits or the United Nations and other institutions. Trump has met with about 30 leaders through June 6, 2017 – not including summits, the UN, or the Palestinian Authority. …Trump’s ambitious foreign policy schedule contradicts critics’ attempts to portray his foreign policy as “isolationist,” or to suggest the 45th president is not interested in foreign affairs.” –Source
For those that think Trump is against the New World Order of the Pope and globalization wherein the mark of the beast will be a sure thing to spread globally, think again. If he was against the Pope and his agenda as so many assume, he wouldn’t be doing what he’s doing right now. Not only have we seen more talk about religion in politics after Trump gained office so as to assure the prophecy regarding the religious laws needed to enforce the mark of the Roman church comes to fruition, we see Trump escalating his foreign table talks with everyone he can get a meeting with so as to speed things up. Basic reality is, if he was an isolationist as many claim he would emulate or at least lean towards the nonexistent foreign policies of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and not John Paul II.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that President Trump was “dishonoring” God and questioned whether his grandchildren will even be able to breathe air after his announcement a day earlier that he would withdraw from the Paris climate accord.
“How is he ever going to explain to his grandchildren what he did to the air they breathe — assuming they breathe air,” she said at her weekly press conference.
She compared the president to racist segregationists during the civil rights movement, said Mr. Trump’s decision was yet another reason he needed to release his tax returns, and said the U.S. has isolated itself from the world, joining just Syria in rejecting the Paris agreement as too onerous.

“In an article titled “Can Facebook Fix Its Own Worst Bug?” author Farhad Manjoo poses the question, “Mark Zuckerberg now acknowledges the dangerous side of the social revolution he helped start. But is the most powerful tool for connection in human history capable of adapting to the world it created?” The author met with Zuckerberg to discuss Facebook and the many issues that the company faces. At one point, Zuckerberg discussed the need for the development of social infrastructure in order for humanity to “get to the next level.” There’s a social infrastructure that needs to get built for modern problems in order for humanity to get to the next level,” he stated. “Having more people oriented not just toward short-term things but toward building the long-term social infrastructure that needs to get built across all these things in order to enable people to come together is going to be a really important thing over the next decades. …Given Facebook’s recent decision to hire partisan left-leaning fact checkers such as ABC News, Snopes, Politifact, and even the George Soros-funded Correctiv to police “fake news” on their platform, many would question the type of “global superstructure” that Mark Zuckerberg wishes to architect.” –Source
Wait a second.. Why is it every time I post more info on Facebook confirming it to be a government owned and operated website hell-bent on pushing the global vision of Rome’s New World Order under a Socialist format that most (not all) Facebook user tells me I’m crazy and Facebook is just a website that some computer programmer built for fun years ago? It’s because the conception and power behind Facebook is just that deceptive. Continue reading →
President Trump on Sunday will cast the fight against terrorism as a “battle between good and evil” and will tell Muslim countries that it’s up to them to decide what kind of future they want in the Middle East.
In a major speech in Saudi Arabia, the president will reject the idea that the U.S. and its allies are at war with Islam, but he’ll stress that it is Islamic leaders, not Western politicians or diplomats, who are best able to defeat terrorism. Continue reading →
