Once an endangered species confined to blasted heaths and moonlit woods, today’s witches are flourishing and emerging blinking into the Golden Age of Television. And, this time, it’s political. A Discovery of Witches, an adaptation of Deborah Harkness’s novel about a young witch who finds an ancient manuscript that brings her to the attention of vampires and demons, began on Sky One last week and is just one of a slew of current and upcoming dramas about the occult, including Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and CBS All Access’s Strange Angel. Why now? With self-professed witches all over the internet and on Instagram, many believe this new wave is linked to the bubbling cauldron of…
HOW MUCH LONGER WILL WE BE ABLE TO CALL AMERICA ONE NATION UNDER GOD? Rick Perry On Cabinet Bible Study And President Trump’s Leadership: “It Starts At The Top”September 23, 2018
Did you know members of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet meet weekly for a Bible study? CBN News was the first to report on it and according to one regular attendee, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, the group is still going strong. “There are a number of men and women on the Cabinet who have a Bible study every Wednesday morning,” Perry told CBN’s Jenna Browder. “Number one, it gives us an opportunity to see each other outside of our normal work environment, but it’s also sending a message that this administration bases its life experiences on that, biblical values.” In addition to Perry, other attendees include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions…

While this amazing account of Herodotus is the most widely known and perhaps the most famous, there were many other mentions of this mysterious place by authors and historians throughout the ages, including Manetho Aegyptiaca (3rd century BC), Diodorus Siculus (1st century BC), Strabo (64 BC – 19 AD), Pliny (23 – 79 AD), and Pomponius Mela (c 43 AD), among others, many of whom saw the mystical place themselves and gave consistent and detailed descriptions of the complex, somewhat dispelling the notion that it was a purely mythical construct. Many of these authors make persistent mention of a confusing profusion of paths, tunnels, ramps, and stairs, and there are more mysterious details as well, such as a mention of a “a fearful noise of thunder” that permeated the whole colossal complex. There is also frequent mention of numerous soaring columns, a solid stone slab for a roof, and of the infinite treasures and beauty held within the Labyrinth…
Can The Pentagon Bridge Artificial Intelligence’s ‘Valley Of Death’ And Give LIFE To The Artificial Mind Of REVELATION 13:15?September 23, 2018
With a $2 billion investment in artificial intelligence research and development from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Pentagon signaled its commitment to outspend the U.S.’s international rivals in an effort to maintain its technological advantage. DARPA director Steven Walker announced the initiative, known as “AI Next,” at the agency’s 60th anniversary symposium Sept. 7 in National Harbor, Maryland. “With AI Next, we are making multiple research investments aimed at transforming computers from specialized tools to partners in problem-solving,” he said. “We want to explore how machines can acquire human-like communication and reasoning capabilities, with the ability to recognize new situations and environments and adapt to them.”

Today, it’s not just secular scientists trying to achieve longer, of even eternal, life through better chemistry and technology. Meet the Christian Transhumanist Association, whose members say they are “called by Christ to participate in that mission.” While the biblical prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel both affirm a future Kingdom of God on earth in which people live a natural life of up to a thousand years again, the question for Christians is whether man’s chemistry and technology is the answer or whether it’s Jesus’ prescription of a spiritual rebirth.

In Romans 16:7 Paul says, “Greet Andronicus and Junia, my countrymen and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles who also were in Christ before me” NKJV). Although the NKJV above has translated the Greek Junian as “Junia,” which is a female name, many today vehemently argue that the name should be “Junias,” which is male. In fact, I recently received an email in which I was accused of “misleading” people by telling them that “Junia” is the correct reading of this passage and that she was a female apostle. In my response, I sought to be gracious, but shared some of the following information showing why “Junia” is the correct reading, and why she should be given her due recognition by the modern church.
