The danger of the live simulcast

You might have noticed a growing trend. More churches are hosting live simulcasts, featuring big-name Christian speakers, like one coming up Wednesday, called The Gathering 2016. There are a lot of reasons why they’re popular, which I’ll address below. But despite the popularity of the simulcast, churches need to be aware of a particular danger before they decide to host one of these events.

Listen to my latest radio interview about the New Apostolic Reformation

Buzzfeed features my post ‘Fortune Cookie Prophecies’

I was delighted to see that three days ago Buzzfeed featured my blog post “Fortune Cookie Prophecies,” which contrasts the silly, vaguely worded predictions made by so-called prophets in the New Apostolic Reformation with the startling, specific predictions made by genuine prophets in the Bible.

California bill threatens freedom of Christian colleges

I’m breaking from my usual reporting to inform my readers about a California bill (Senate Bill 1146) that, if passed, will severely limit the ability of the state’s Christian colleges and universities to operate according to their biblical convictions about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.
