Jesus Predicted People Would Vote For Gay Marriage As A Sign Of End Times

“I think this confirms something that Jesus said in Matthew 7, that ‘broad is the road that leads to destruction and many enter into it, but narrow is the road that leads to eternal life and only a few find it.’ So I wouldn’t be surprised if most people in America voted against God and against God’s values if that wasn’t a confirmation of something that Jesus predicted would come in the end times,” Klingenschmitt says.[Read More…]

Faith and the Question “What if you’re wrong?”

This is where I think most contemporary Christians, and all far right religious zealots and bigots have it all wrong. They are so sure that they are right. Faith isn’t about “knowing you are right.” Faith is[Read More…]
