Why “The Mountain”?

Micah 4 (KJV) 1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more....

Sethite Theory: “Certain Men Crept In Unawares” and The Church Buys It!

So, what is the “Sethite Theory”? In a nutshell, it is the belief that Genesis 6:1-4 refers to what happens to mankind after Cain kills Abel. The line of Seth was pure and faithful, while the line of Cain turned rebellious and ungodly. By Belle Ringer April 1, 2017 There are days when the spiritual component of my life just screams for attention. Enough of this world, already! So, I just have to speak about matters that have much greater consequences than the latest headlines. A few weeks back, I published a post titled “How Much Longer? (As It Was In The Days of Noah). Needless to say, it caused quite a bit of controversy and generated a spirited conversation amongst the Body of Christ, and with the secular population. But there is much more that needs to be said about this topic, and I believe it is quite relevant...

POTUS Trump: Fear God or Government

By Debra Brown March 20, 2017 Whether you agree with the outcome of the presidential election or not, Christians are called to PRAY daily “for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity” (1 Timothy 2:2). How should we pray concerning the “fake news” that torments President Trump? Before there was CNN, CBS, NBC, Fox or ABC, newspapers played and continue to play a role in how people think. In June of 1854 New York newspaper magnate, Horace Greeley, wrote in an editorial, “We should not care much whether those united (against slavery) were designated ‘Whig,’ ‘Free Democrat’ or something else; though we think some simple name like ‘Republican’ would more fitly designate those who had united to restore the Union to its true mission of champion and promulgator of Liberty rather than propagandist of slavery.” (ref.:...

Christian Student Reports Professor for Distorting Gospel, Gets Suspended

Staff Reporter, MCN April 15, 2017 After a confrontation with a Muslim professor’s claim that Jesus’ crucifixion never took place, a Rollins College student was suspended for confronting the professor over the teacher’s comments. Marshall Polston, is a sophomore at Rollins, a private 4-year institution. “Whether religious or not, I believe even those with limited knowledge of Christianity can agree that according to the text, Jesus was crucified and his followers did believe he was divine… that he was ‘God,’” Polston told the Central Florida Post, adding, “Regardless, to assert the contrary as academic fact is not supported by the evidence.” Areej Zufari, professor of the Middle Eastern Humanities class, gave Polston a 52/100 on an essay shortly thereafter and reported his comments on Christ to the campus dean. Even after all this, Zufari held a class discussion on Sharia Law where “a male Muslim student said gays and adulterers...

In Anticipation Of The Coming American Apocalypse, two Lawmakers Plan To Create ‘Christian Survivalist Centers’ In Rural Areas

By Michael Snyder April 6, 2017 A couple of lawmakers from South Carolina want to establish a network of self-sufficient communities in their state in preparation for “societal collapse”. In the long-term, they hope to “train and equip one million neighborhood leaders” that will be able to establish “a fresh beginning for America” in the aftermath of the great crisis that is coming. State Representatives Josiah Magnuson and Jonathon Hill are both relatively young, they were both home-schooled, and each of their fathers are pastors. They are calling their dream the “Virtue Solution Project”, and they are examples of a new breed of American politician that recognizes that the system is failing and that we desperately need to return to the values that this nation was founded upon. In the short-term, Magnuson and Hill hope that the centers that they are establishing will enable communities to be able to survive...

Interfaith Alert – Liberal Media Alert

Montana Media Favors ‘Celebrate Islam Week’ over ‘Creation Conference’ 13 to 2 in New Study St. Paul Lutheran Church Hosts ‘Celebrate Islam Week’ – In Nowhere Else Other Than Missoula Governor Bullock accused of being ‘Sharia-Compliant’ By Jesse Wanskasmith May 25, 2017 When the Lake Missoula Creation Conference came to Missoula, it was a big hit for the Christian community of Montana. The conference, an annual gathering of creation scientists and researchers started by Doug Miller in 2013, featured Ken Ham as this years keynote speaker. Interestingly, the Montana mainstream-media favored, in a welcoming tone, a much smaller interfaith-oriented organization called Standing Alongside America’s Muslims (SALAM), also in Missoula – 13 TO 2. The organization, operating with Emmaus Campus Ministries on the University of Montana in Missoula, organized the week-long event held at various locations in Missoula April 25-30. SALAM’s founder, Laurie Franklin, a spiritual leader and student rabbi at...

Perfect Doctrine and Flawless Deeds

By Kevin Hammons August 17, 2017 “‘By this, all will know that you are My disciples: your perfect doctrine and your flawless deeds.’” Oh wait! The Jesus didn’t say that. This is the right quote: “‘By this, all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.’” (John 14:35*) And more: “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.… Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up does not behave rudely, is not provoked…” (1 Cor 12:1-2,4-5*) In all candor, I must confess that...

The Shack: Book Review By Matt Slick

By Matt Slick February 8, 2017 Matt Slick can be followed at his website: https://carm.org/the-shack The Shack has been a popular book in Christian circles, at least at the time this article was originally written in May of 2008. It is about to be released as a movie starring Sam Worthington. Now, I am not saying we don’t want Hollywood to produce good Christian material. But, sad to say, if Hollywood wants to do something Christian, then we need to be cautious. And, if the movie is anything like the book, then there is reason for concern. The Shack is supposed to be the account of a man who spent a weekend with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit in a shack in the forest. It is a fictional story1 of Mr. Mackenzie Allen Phillips, written by William P. Young. Mack suffers the horrible loss...

Butte Rescue Mission Faces Closure as 200+ Neighbors say ‘NO’

  By MCN Staff March 20, 2017 The Butte Rescue Mission is being forced to move from its location on E. Second Street in Butte as of April 3rd, 2017. A replacement location hasn’t been confirmed and the director of the organization, Rocky Lyons, has been scrambling to relocate the Christian-based rescue mission. The mission is hoping to relocate to the old Madison School, owned by the Foursquare Church for $100,000, but over 200 neighbors have come forward signing a petition asking the move not go forward. The mission offers emergency housing with up to 50 beds each night and is usually full. The mission also serves three meals a day seven days a week and relies on community support to continue its Godly work. During the holidays, the mission has served up to 3000 meals during Thanksgiving and Christmas. The potential closure of the Mission should raise serious concerns...
