A CHANCE exchange of emails and a Sunday sermon led to this week’s main topic. The odd story of the Samaritan sorcerer Simon Magus recorded in Acts 8:9-25 prompted a discussion of those who seek to possess and profit from supernatural power. It’s as relevant today as it was in first-century Samaria.
A NEW kind of Christianity is being sold to our kids, one that questions everything down to the historic foundations of the faith. Chris Rosebrough, host of the Fighting For the Faith radio program, explains how the Emergent Church is gaining traction among young Christians and the threat posed by this heresy.
HOW DO Christians know what to think when our pastors bring teachings into church that are rooted in the heresy and/or the occult? Discernment, that’s how.

Interestingly, it was at the G20 that President Obama decided to reveal Iran’s second uranium enrichment facility, not the UN Security Council. Why is that?
IN A move that’s clearly intended to send a message to Iran, the Israeli navy has sailed two of its most advanced missile boats through the Suez Canal and into the Red Sea. Only ten days ago, an Israeli submarine believed to be equipped with cruise missiles armed with nuclear warheads made the same passage.
