33 Так всякий из вас, кто не отрешится от всего, что имеет, не может быть Моим учеником. Евангелие от Луки 14 глава – Библия:
If anyone has lived in Philadelphia, you know the city has a history of racial problems (i.e. Rizzo, Goode, Street, etc). In fact, the city is deeply segregated by race. In April 2000, I was summoned to do jury duty in Philadelphia for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I took the day off from work and thought I wouldn’t be picked that morning in a pool of over 300 people. A few minutes later, I was picked and became juror number 12 for a drug murder trial that lasted one whole week. The defendant was a young black girl (22 years old) from Philly who was purported to have murdered (near 8th and Butler) a young white girl from Bucks County. Both were crack (cocaine) addicts. When we got the summons to deliberate, I walked into the jury room and what I experienced was pure racism. 6 jurors were white and they automatically sided with the murdered girl to not start a racial war; they didn’t go for first degree but second. 5 jurors were black and stated that the girl wasn’t responsible for the murder but they concluded with second degree instead of full acquittal. It was surreal in that room, and the lack of logic was mind boggling. What everyone did not do was to look at the facts of the case presented in court. We needed a unanimous decision for either first degree murder (no death penalty; life in prison without parole), second degree (with possibility of parole) or acquittal. No one studied the facts but it was 11 for second degree and when it came my time to vote. I said “first degree”. People were upset, they wanted to go home. Then I explained why. I methodically showed them the medical examiner’s report, the angle of the bullet, and other evidence. The racism actually went away for a few minutes. What was interesting is that white and black people in that room had no baggage against me; so they heard me out. In fact, I stated I was a chemical engineering grad from Drexel and they gave me more respect. After my arguing of the facts, we took another vote. This time, it was 11 for first degree and 1 for second degree. A major reversal! I asked the woman (who is black), why second degree and she said “I am a Christian and I can’t send the girl to death”. The woman was very nice and in fact my sister in Christ. I told her “I too am a born again believer, I am deeply burdened by what the young black girl will go through but as Christians we must stand up for the truth and evaluate this case based on the facts presented. There is no option of death penalty in this case. And the facts show pre-meditation. We must administer true justice for the victim of the crime” It was very emotional in the room and we went home. Day 5 we reached a conclusion in the morning and it was 12 jurors for First Degree. We went into the court room and the judge (a black man, who I respected deeply as he held law above race. He was impartial and administered the law superbly.) read our conclusion. The young black girl screamed with tears, the mother of the young white girl cried in the courtroom. It was very emotional. I held it together until all of the jurors were dismissed. In the jury room, people were crying and I started to tear up. We are talking about people’s lives. I saw the Christian woman who is black hug a fellow white juror. There was healing. I left in amazement of what God showed in my life. For the past few days, we have been caught up in another race war. Our nation has been through it tragically many times and it is breaking US. It is easy to watch injustice via videos and what the “news” reports said but I say evaluate all of the facts. No one knows all of the facts of the case, only those in court and those are the facts that must be used to decide innocence or guilt. It looks like this officer was excessive and asphyxiated a fellow human being (which is manslaughter at minimum or murder at maximum per our laws) but I would like to know the whole story; not just the edited clips. God knows the truth and it will be dealt with by his standards also. But it is very clear our society, is in mob rule mentality and reacting without thinking. How did we get here? Rejecting the God of the Bible, fatherhood, marriage, family, all as God designed! I believe in our justice system )as imperfect as it is on some occasions) and I adamantly oppose mob rule. What is happening today is a continuation of communists using people to gain permanent power. Lenin did it so well by suckering the peasants and manipulating their hopelessness; eventually those used will be those those abused if not killed by their “revolutionary leaders”. Yet true questions are not being asked. If BLM is so important, why aren’t their any serious attempts to stop abortion? Most abortion occurs of black babies (36 million). Also why does Antifa and BLM (communist groups) destroy businesses that helps people especially the poor? We are being played by smart yet evil people. I oppose men who are liars and use people for their personal gain. But they have an advantage; stupid, ignorant, and/or evil committed people follow them blindly up to their own self destruction. Racism, by all races, is sadly alive and well in America and it is effectively used by communist democrats to divide the nation. We don’t see on forms “American”, we see “INSERT RACE – American”; which needs to be abolished! Pride drives some whites to think they are better than minorities. Pride also drives blacks and hispanics to play the same game and eliminate whites from their neighborhoods; the same pride is used to cause disunity between hispanics and blacks also (sinful pride divides all). All people have prejudice in some form due to our sin nature and the prejudices that devalue fellow humans is dehumanizing. Bitterness and depression (mainly from a lack of success from government intervention in their lives) drives anger and hate by blacks and hispanics against whites. Leftist whites play the “guilt” card to subjugate innocent people and take political control. Racism, by all, will destroy our nation if isn’t stopped immediately through God’s word, healing, and reconciliation and through rule of law. We have racism in the church. In 2008 in NYC, I remember black and hispanic theology professors at my seminary were enthusiastic about meeting Sen. Obama earlier in the day. I asked them “what about his positions that are anti-Bible?” They said “He is a Christian, he is one of us” Race and Sin replaced God’s word. Sin is not talked about, the sin of racial pride. I believe many of those churches have or will fall in due time unless there is repentance. What we all have forgotten is that above race, there is the God of the Bible and that ALL we are created equal in God’s image (Genesis 2). Until we repent and give Christ our pride, our hatred, our bitterness to the Lord Jesus Christ and let him heal us from the inside out, there will continue to be self destruction and national destruction. God can heal our racial wounds (bitterness) but would we let Him? When we evaluate the facts of our lives (like what we did in the murder trial in Philadelphia) then can there be true justice. Our nation can succeed and be unified, only if we let the God of the Bible heal US and lead US. The churches must be the first place to show this! Our fight is against sin, in our own lives and in the public square. Let us have a conclusion like the American sisters of different races in the jury room in Philadelphia where, after true and complete facts were presented and issues sincerely, civilly discussed, justice was served and true unity took place. Let us be Christians and Americans first! God bless!
Experience and Understand the Significance of Pentecost What happened at Pentecost, and how is this so highly relevant to the Church of Jesus Christ today? Why does this matter? It is much more important than many realise. These apostles and disciples were gathered together in one place. They were in the Temple in Jerusalem, because when we read the record and account given to us by Dr Luke, no one moved until the apostles arose and Peter spoke and explained the significance of what had just taken place. They were gathered together in one place, at the one time, and they were united. Someone had organised it and all were present and Jesus Christ blessed that gathering. They knew and understood something of the fundamentals and basics of discipleship from the very beginning. Over these past years I have met very few people who have understood the basics of discipleship. Read the account which is given us in Acts Chapter 2. Whenever someone reads the Word of God and opens himself, or herself, to the Word of God, our living loving gracious God is so willing and eager to bless and reward. Be open to God’s Word and to receive and embrace what He reveals to you. We read of the blowing of a wind, and tongues of fire resting on each of the one hundred and twenty heads of the apostles and disciples, and there would be as many as fifty thousand people present on this important occasion. It was a Jewish festival and the Temple courts would be crowded. We read about that a few sentences later. They are all filled with the Holy Spirit and each speaks in tongues – or praises God in a language they had never learned. I have enjoyed this manifestation of the Holy Spirit for over fifty years and it has been such an edifying and encouraging spiritual ability. Jesus had promised to send the Comforter, or the One who comes alongside to help, and that is exactly what happens on this occasion – although there is also an anointing of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit fills these disciples of Jesus and they overflow at the mouth. We overflow at the mouth too, if we are angry, or in love, or filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the One who anoints and guides and directs and leads and he anoints and empowers and does so much more. This is God the Holy Spirit. These one hundred and twenty apostles and disciples of Jesus Christ are having an encounter with Almighty God. When this happens to day, we have an encounter with Almighty God and do we all not so need that once again? These disciples are changed. These men and women are totally transformed – and notice that Mary, the mother of Jesus, is present there in that congregation. Yes, people are ridiculed and mocked and laughed at, because the bewildered onlookers do not understand the significance of what is taking place – verse 13. Jesus Christ is birthing and launching His glorious Church! Dear Peter, who had caused so much upset, arises and explains – and explains so fully and adequately. This is what had been prophesied. What Joel said would happen is happening and this experience of the Holy Spirit continues to be experienced and will do so until Jesus Christ comes again. The Helper was bringing Hope. We so need Hope in our troubled world today – and in the compromising Church. If you are looking for a deeper spirituality and for inspiration that will never depart from you, this is where it is to be found and discovered and enjoyed – but remember it is for service and ministry! “Our loving heavenly Father – we give thanks for every good and perfect gift. At this time we give thanks for the experience and significance of what happened at Pentecost – and we thank you risen and ascended Jesus, that you continue to pour out the Holy Spirit today upon men and women. Anoint us – empower us – so that we may serve. Amen” (This week's "Word from Scotland", as we approach another Pentecost - previous articles may be found at Studylight.com and liveasif.com in the 'Archives' - warmest greetings in Christ Jesus.)

Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and What Justice Gorsuch Hath Wrought

John Stonestreet and Shane Morris discuss the long-term consequences of the Supreme Court decision in Bostock vs. Clayton County, in which Justice Neil Gorsuch stood logic and language on their head and essentially re-wrote Title VII of the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

As John argues, the decision will inevitably extend to areas like education and women's sports. And as Shane relates, by equating sexual orientation and gender identity with race, the Court is putting believers in traditional sexual morality on the level with racists and bigots.

Also in this episode: A Christian pastor argues that to win the next round of the culture war, Christians will need to have more children and raise them in the faith. So naturally he got a lot of flak--even from Christians. How is this possible? John and Shane discuss.

John and Shane also take listeners' questions: Today on end of life decisions and whether monogamy is making a comeback.

And we also share a segment of author Natasha Crain's presentation at our Truth Love Together event entitled, "Teaching Your Kids Truth in a Noisy Age."

YouTube Dad Adopts the Internet: How-To Videos and Loving the Fatherless - BreakPoint

Kenney started a YouTube channel to teach skills to young people without dads in their life. As my Tennessee friend might put it, he’s not teaching rocket surgery. The videos are about things dads typically teach their sons and daughters: how to tie a tie, how to change a tire, how to unclog a sink, how to shave, and how to hang a shelf.

Kenney named his YouTube channel, “Dad, how do I?” When his son, apparently aware of and willing to share the blessings he’s enjoyed with such a great father, posted a link to his dad’s channel on the photo sharing site Imgur, it exploded. In just two months, the channel has over 2 million subscribers.

Should Christians Ever Disobey the Law? - BreakPoint

You’re in a conversation and someone says, “Is it ever ok for Christians to disobey the law?”

What would you say?

People should obey the law. Social order is good and our laws preserve the social order. If people only obeyed the laws they like, the result would be chaos. But what about when laws are bad? Should Christians obey bad laws too? The next time someone says that Christians should always obey the law, in all cases, remember these four things.

First, God created Government. Christians show submission to God by submitting to authorities God created.

Second, Christians should obey the law. God calls Christians to be obedient, faithful citizens, even in cases of bad leadership.

Third, working within the law to challenge bad laws is not only acceptable for Christians, it may be an obligation.

Fourth, Christians cannot obey man’s laws if it conflicts with God’s law. Both scripture and church history are filled with evidence that the duty to obey man’s law ends when it calls for disobedience to God’s law.

Lawyer Predicts New and Ugly Chapter of the Culture War: A Conversation with the ADF's John Bursch - BreakPoint

Many, even many Christians, have rejoiced at the ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County, seeing it as nothing more than basic fairness. In this, they are blissfully unaware of what will come next, because, in our nation’s ongoing culture wars, there’s always a “next.”

It was just a few short years ago that the idea of gay marriage was touted “marriage equality,” something that allowed our gay neighbors the same rights and joys as the rest of us. Why not? Who was against love? Only the most paranoid could think that anything more could come of it. A few years later and what do we see? The Supreme Court of the United States just ruled, in effect, that it is legally discriminatory to treat a biological man as a man if he says he’s a woman.

John Stonestreet talked with John Bursch, the lawyer with the Alliance Defending Freedom who argued this pivotal case in Washington and he offers his observations and insights about what this means for American society and for the task of the Church.

Juneteenth—Something We Can All Commemorate - BreakPoint

Since I wasn’t even alive in 1968, I’ll defer to Boomers and historians to tell us whether the country was more divided back then or today. In my lifetime, however, I can confidently say that the racial, political, economic, and ideological polarization has never been worse, nor has the violence and outrage.

No matter the issue, from public policy to personal morality to global health, people seem to immediately run to their ideological and political corners. No discussion, little charity, less concern about the requirements of a common life together. A lot of yelling. It’s difficult to imagine a people less able to accomplish a life together than us, with no shared vision and no shared memory.

Tomorrow, however, offers us an opportunity to come out of our ideological and political corners and agree to commemorate a significant day in American history. Every American, regardless of politics or background, should reflect on a day marked in many African American communities for over 150 years.

BREAKPOINT EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

John Stonestreet sits down with ADF's John Bursch, senior counsel and vice president of appellate advocacy with Alliance Defending Freedom. Bursch was an attorney for Tom and Nancy Ross, owners of the funeral home in this ruling.

Yesterday, June 15th, 2020, by a 6-3 vote, the Supreme Court ruled that Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prohibited discrimination in employment on the basis of sex, also includes sexual orientation and gender identity.

The decision, Bostock v. Clayton County, involved three cases. In two of them, a social worker and a skydiving instructor claimed they were fired for being gay. The third case involved the firing of a funeral home employee who, after being hired as a man, identified and presented as a woman.

Let the Little Children to Come to Me - BreakPoint

What do you do if your child has questions about God? For a lot of parents, this can be a scary moment, one that we fear will undo the faith of our precious sons and daughters. We can panic, saying that they’re too young to ask such things, or maybe that they’re wrong to inquire. This is hardly helpful.

But, what is also not so helpful is to answer the question that they’re not asking, to treat the honest questions our children bring to us as a project, offering a bookish reply to a personal fear. One of the best ways we can address our children’s questions is to ask our children questions.

In a recent Colson Center podcast, Shane Morris spoke with Natasha Crain about this very issue. She reminds us all of the importance of engaging with our children where they are and taking the time to find out their underlying concerns before launching on a lecture that will do them no good.

  • Offer incisive content that cuts through the fog of relativism and the news cycle with truth and compassion.

  • Provide training that unlocks every believer's calling to restore culture.

  • Resource and activate a movement of Christians committed to cultural restoration.
  • Why We Exist

    The world is confusing. The culture around us is broken. The consequences of the bad ideas deeply embedded in the way people think and live are devastating. Swimming against the cultural currents has a great cost. The easy choice for Christians is to try to keep their heads down, blend in, stay silent, or even withdraw from the controversial conversations.

    But there is a better way.

    Built on a foundation decades in the making, The Colson Center is the acknowledged hub of the worldview movement. At our core is the idea idea that there is no square inch of human existence over which Christ does not cry, "Mine!" Christians have been used by God to transform some of the darkest moments in human history, because men and women of faith knew God had a bigger plan in mind, and stood up for the truth.

    The Colson Center brings clarity and equips ordinary people to be agents of God’s restoration. Whether what you need is a daily dose of sanity or in-depth training to make a profound difference in your corner of the world, the Colson Center provides solid, unique resources and training. The result is a rapidly growing wave of believers motivated and mobilized to be courageous catalysts for God’s work in the world.

    What We Do


  • The world is confusing. We bring clarity. Founded by Chuck Colson (1931 – 2012) in 1991 as a daily radio broadcast, BreakPoint provides a Christian perspective on today’s news and trends via radio, podcasts, video, and print.

  • Our culture is broken. We equip restorers. Throughout the year, we allow people to delve deeper into the most difficult cultural questions, and meet real people who are bringing light to the darkness. Our annual Wilberforce Weekend in Washington, D.C. is a gathering of heroes, where nearly a thousand people gather to be inspired and equipped for cultural restoration. Regular webinars, short courses, local speaking events, and other opportunities allow people to gain mastery of tricky topics and bring leadership to their families, churches, workplaces, and communities.

  • Christians are shaped by culture. We prepare them to shape it. The Colson Fellows Program is a nine-month long, intensive worldview course with readings, webinars, and residencies that prepare Christians to become leaders for Kingdom change. It’s designed for CEOs, teachers, pastors, young professionals, stay-at-home moms—anyone who wants to be empowered to be an effective advocate for God in their sphere of influence.
