Matt. 16:15-17 ¶ He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven”.

I was desperately searching for God in 1973. I had pretty much run the gamut of spiritual options; I had gone to Bahai faith meetings, checked out the Divine Light Mission, and gone to the feasts at the..

With the election of Donald Trump, there has been a lot of talk about the future of abortion in the United States.

Trump promised to appoint “pro-life” justices to the U.S. Supreme Court who potentially could overturn Roe v. Wade and return the power to regulate abortions back to the states.

Pro-abortion lawyer Sarah Weddington, made famous by arguing Roe v. Wade in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, said she believes Trump’s presidency eventually could lead to an end to legalized abortion.

Vice President Mike Pence is reportedly meeting with pro-life advocates at the White House soon to make sure there is no text pair of funding under Obamacare.

Congressional Republicans have already approved in committee a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare. What pro-life advocates want to make sure doesn’t happen is that tax credits given under the replacement bill are able to be used to pay for abortions. That was the situation under Obamacare.

First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her family are quite possibly the highest-profile Modern Orthodox Jews in American history. Ivanka, who converted in 2009, has spoken about how her family observes the Sabbath, keeps kosher, and celebrates various Jewish holidays together. And now, for some reason, the media has taken it upon itself to become the “kosher police.”
