In February, popular singer and composer Elton John said, "I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems."
Elton John's statement shows the severe lack of knowledge of our age.
For centuries, people who were educated had read the Bible. The Bible makes it clear that Jesus Christ says that He is God and proves that He is God. As C.S. Lewis says, from the Bible we can only conclude that Jesus is God, a lunatic, or something worse. The resurrection and transformation of billions of lives is the seal of approval of His Godhood.

Palmer worked with the International Organization of Journalists (IOJ), a documented Soviet front group. As IOJ vice president in the 1980s, Palmer worked closely with the highest levels of the Soviet propaganda machine, in...

Movies with Christian, redemptive content and movies by Christians are experiencing a dramatic growth. The number of movies with positive Christian content has increased from less than one percent each year to nearly 50 percent. The number of movies produced by Christians also has increased dramatically, especially since the release of FIREPROOF. Some of them are excellent.
To understand the future of Christian cinema, we need to look at the past. In the early days of the entertainment industry, may of the movies were Passion Plays, Nativity stories and morality tales. Thomas Alva Edison gave the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth, a film camera in the 1890s, and Booth used ...
