TAKE IT SERIOUSLY

 

EVERYONE at "The Biblical Christian Digital Network" takes News seriously. You should to. Serious enough to realize that ALL NEWS and ALL NEWS SERVICES are biased and opionated. That is a fact; that will not change no matter where you get your news or read it from.

IT IS INHERENTLY OPINIONATED.

 

This is News for some but there is no such thing as Fair and Balanced or Fact news.

When human beings are involved it means we all see things differently at times. News outside of America admits it is biased; News in America in the last 75 years has tried to "market" the idea of "journalistic integrity" when since before America became a nation it has been the venue of News to express opinion. Often as in media, owned and operated by "Newsservices" for political reason. 

It is up to you what you see; what you hear and what you understand.

The Only Facts For a Christian is The Word of God.

You control what you see; Be Carful how you read a story. You control what you hear; Be careful what and who you are listening to. You control what you understand; be mindful of God to direct your understanding.

In all things remember; you control how you act upon them; don't react to them.

"Take Everything to the Lord in Prayer; then leave it there."

Headlines for Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
U.S. Gov't Spent More Than Eight Times Its Monthly Revenue 
The U.S. Treasury has released a final statement for the month of March that demonstrates that financial madness has gripped the federal government.  During the month, according to the Treasury, the federal government grossed $194 billion in tax revenue and paid out $65.898 billion in tax refunds (including $62.011 to individuals and $3.887 to businesses) thus netting $128.179 billion in tax revenue for March.  At the same, the Treasury paid out a total of $1.1187 trillion. When the $65.898 billion in tax refunds is deducted from that, the Treasury paid a net of $1.0528 trillion in federal expenses for March.  That $1.0528 trillion in spending for March equaled 8.2 times the $128.179 in net federal tax revenue for the month.The lion’s share of this federal spending went to redeem Treasury securities that had matured during the month—most of which were short-term Treasury bills that have terms of one-year or less. In fact, during March the Treasury redeemed $705.3 billion in Treasury securities of which $623.9 billion were short-term bills with a term of one year...  MORE
Koran-Burning Pastor Defiant Despite Riots 
At least 20 are dead in Afghanistan, including two American soldiers, as Muslims rioted for a fourth straight day Monday, enraged by a Florida church's burning of a Koran three weeks ago. During the protests, a man wear- ing a border police uniform shot and killed two American soldiers. It was not known if the killer was a police officer who turned on his Western counterparts or an insurgent disguising himself in uniform.  MORE
Five Christians Tried for Blasphemy in Iran 
Five Christians imprisoned in the Iranian city of Shiraz are scheduled to be tried for blas- phemy on Monday, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide.  The five have already served one year in prison for "crimes against the Islamic Order."  The five believers, who are members of Church of Iran - the Islamic republic's largest house church movement-- would be sentenced to death if convicted. The news comes weeks after Iran's government seized and burned 600 Bibles...    MORE
May 15th Strategy To Invade Israel Posted on Facebook REMOVED FROM FACEBOOK
Social-networking sites, specifically Face- book, are being used to promote a campaign that appears to target the very existence of Israel, with hundreds of thousands worldwide seeking to join in a plan to "return" to and take over the original homes of their families in "Palestine" on May 15.  According to a report ...the idea being circulated is "for millions of Palestinian refugees to march en masse in return to the original homes of their families in Israel."   MORE
GET RELIGION: The Unrepentant Terry Jones 
...But now that mobs in Afghanistan murder- ed nine humans and injured 81 others in response to the burning of the book, we’re seeing much more coverage. And the cover- age is very interesting. It reminds me of something I was taught in college about rape. Basically, no matter how short the skirt the girl’s wearing, she doesn’t deserve to be raped. I always thought it was also wise to dress modestly but that wasn’t the point. The point was that the rapist is responsible for the rape, not the victim or society. Murdering people who have nothing to do...  MORE
7 Topics We Can't Have Adult Conversations About in America 
by JOHN HAWKINS-In a world where politics has become all-consuming and there's an interest group look- ing for an opportunity to exploit every issue, it has become almost impossible to have adult conversations about certain subjects. The moment you try to do so, legions of grievance mongers, ideologues and bottom feeders start belting out scripted responses that have nothing to do with the topic at hand and everything to do with what they imagine your motivations to be and how ugly, stupid, and flawed they think you are as a human being.  MORE
Terry Jones Says, "I Would Rather Die Than Stop Preaching About Islam' 
The controversial pastor who has sparked riots in Afghanistan which have left at least 20 dead has said he would rather die than stop preaching against Islam.  Reverend Terry Jones said his right to speak out was more important than the lives of those who had died during the unrest - or any American soldiers who might be killed in the future.  He said he would continue his campaign against Muslims even though every single one of his 30 parishioners had deserted him. The 59-year-old did however admit that he now carries a gun everywhere he goes because he has received death threats...  MORE
PHIL JOHNSON: On Street Preaching 
Street preachers are much-maligned and often despised (or worse) for their work.  The following thoughts are adapted from a comment I made in an evangelical forum where questions were being raised about the validity of open-air evangelism. Several forum participants said they are embarrassed by open-air preaching, loud evangelism, public calls for repentance, placards, and tract ministry...One thing was clear: lots of Christians have a low opinion of people who pro- claim the gospel through signs or sermons on street corners.  I have a different point of view...Evangelical Christianity has a noble tradition of open-air preaching, and some of the finest preachers...   MORE
Israel Threatens Unilateral Steps If UN Recognizes Palestinian State 
Israel informed the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council last week, as well as several other prominent European Union countries, that if the Palestinian Authority persists in its efforts to gain recognition in September as a state within the 1967 borders, Israel would respond with a series of unilateral steps of its own. Senior Foreign Ministry officials said the ministry's director general, Rafael Barak, sent a classified cable last week to more than 30 Israeli embassies, directing them to lodge a diplomatic protest at the highest possible level in response to the Palestinian efforts to gain internat- ional recognition for statehood at the UN General Assembly session in September.    MORE
FOREIGN POLICY: The Syrian Time Bomb 
While one war rages in Libya, another rages in Washington as to the necessity of U.S. action there. Indeed, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said as much this weekend, noting that Libya was not a "vital national interest." But if Washington is looking for an Arab state in the throes of unrest, one that is key to its regional and national interests, planners might want to pay more attention to Syria, which is now undergoing upheaval not seen since the early 1980s. Syria lies at the center of a dense network of Middle East relationships, and the crisis in that country -- which has now resulted in the deaths of well over 100 civilians, and possibly close to double that number -- is likely to have a major impact on the regional structure of power. The need to contain pressure from the United States and Israel, for...   MORE

Ex-Counselor in Religious Discrimination Legal Fight  
A federal appeals court in Georgia is considering whether to allow a counselor's religious discrimination lawsuit to go forward after she refused to counsel a woman in a same-sex relationship.
Libyan Rebels Have Establish New Central Bank Of Libya 
The rebels in Libya are in the middle of a life or death civil war and Moammar Gadhafi is still in power and yet somehow the Libyan rebels have had enough time to establish a new Central Bank of Libya and form a new national oil company.

JUSTIN TAYLOR: The Allure and Danger of Sanitized Biography

M.BETH HICKS: Don't Let Digital Media Crowd Out Prayer Time 
It would be so much easier to pray if God would get a Twitter account. Or at least a Facebook page. And how much more effective would our prayers be if we simply could instant-message them to God, and he could reply with real-time responses? 
Books that Help Us Become Better Readers of the Bible 
What difference does it make that a psalm is a poem? How might paying attention to its literary form help us take in (and communi- cate) its meaning? How does a metaphor communicate truth, as it works its way deep into our imaginations?
ROBIN PHILLIPS: Are Calvinists Also Among the Gnostics? 
...I was reading....I was struck again and again by just how Gnostic so much of the Calvinist tradition is, especially Calvinism of the Puritan variety. Consider four areas where the imprint of Gnostic- ism can be felt within the Calvinist tradition.
SHARPER IRON: Influences that Shape Cultures 
...everybody lives in a culture. The creation of culture is hardwired into human beings. They encounter the natural world.
