In the 21st century, the Internet and specifically the blogosphere and […]
Have looks at politics changed between the 19th century and now? How were people to look at the coming Kingdom of God and how are the present believers willing to wait patiently for that Kingdom which would take place where according to them?
In many countries the door-to-door evangelists have historically served as a bellwether for religious freedom for other minority groups. In Russia, that includes evangelicals, who remain ambivalent over whether to defend the rights of Jehovah’s Witnesses as a fellow non-Orthodox faith. “Considering that the religion of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is professed by hundreds of thousands […]
How far may a person or a group go to create a Museum for the Bible? When looking at the present world of Christians we can see that from the United States of America there are lots of very fundamental Christians who think they may do everything to spread the Gospel News. To get a […]
