JY: How is the Christian Left hijacking the church?

LM: We're seeing a hydra of involvements between progressives, leftists and deconstructionists. I define the Christian Left as this growing constituency of left-leaning Christians (at times, Christians in name only) who willingly embrace a downgraded view of the Bible in favor of a held belief about socialism and Marxism.

The latest report on the transmission of monkeypox confirms that it is spread overwhelmingly by men who have sex with men. What should we conclude from this?

In the early days of AIDS, it was commonplace to hear preachers refer to this "homosexual disease" as a judgment from God.

As recounted by Michael Christensen on the Ministry Matters website, "When I was a pastor in San Francisco, many Christians viewed AIDS as a sign of the end of the world. I kept busy countering the predominant apocalyptic view in evangelical and fundamentalist churches that 'AIDS was God's judgment on the homosexual lifestyle' or as 'punishment for IV drug use.' I remember trying to help people process (including those in my own congregation) why it was that those whose behavior put them at high risk got AIDS from a virus, not as a punishment from God for immorality."

In the year 2015, as the story is told, a renowned scientist discovered a cure for cancer after more than 30 years of research and testing.

But it was not just a cure. It was the cure, effectively eradicating all cancer from all patients at all stages of the disease. This was the greatest discovery in the history of medical science! The scientist, overflowing with gratitude and excitement, informed the pharmaceutical company he had been working with, sharing this extraordinary moment with them, and within minutes, the whole organization was ablaze with excitement. At last!

Immediately, they sent their marketing team over to meet with the scientist and work on a strategy for mass distribution. But there were some obstacles to be overcome.

Dear Ric,

If you get this message, that should be a sign that God has something really important to say to you. After all, you don't know me from Adam, and there are millions of articles on the internet. The fact that you're reading this article is an answer to prayer.

But before I share God's message to you, let me speak to you from my own heart for a moment.

You have obviously lived an amazing life, one with incredible triumphs and incredible agony.

Is it possible that revival in America and the nations will come through Communion?

Lou Engle, an intercessor for revival and co-founder of The Call global prayer and fasting movement, believes the answer is yes.

He's calling the nation to Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Oct. 8, 2022.
