Should We Cut These Verses About Unity Out of Our Bible?

If there is one thing that seems spiritually certain it is that the Church will always be divided. Our factions and differences and divisions seem as fixed as the rising of the sun. Yet the Bible speaks of a day when we will all come together in the unity of the faith. How can this possibly be true?
To be clear, when I speak of “the Church” I’m not speaking of all who profess to be followers of Jesus. I’m speaking of those who are genuine believers, those whom God considers to be His sons and daughters, those who have been truly redeemed.

Why William Shatner’s space voyage matters

OPINION:
In a world where we’re told to fear a virus that’s almost 100% survivable for healthy people under the retirement age and warning labels terrify us at every turn, we recently watched a spectacle of bravery and ingenuity of the sort that built this country: 90-year-old William Shatner launching into space aboard Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin.
This was no publicity stunt, as Mr. Shatner‘s instantly recognizable in every corner of the globe.

The Right Is Embracing the Reactionary Brutality of “Special Operators” Like Eddie Gallagher

Special operators in elite military units are the tip of the spear of US counterinsurgency campaigns around the globe. Their exploits in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other fronts in the global “war on terror” have become fodder for scores of action films like American Sniper, fanboy books by journalists covering the military, and tell-all memoirs by SEAL Team 6 members involved in the rubout of Osama bin Laden and other targets.

Don’t Give in to the Culture Industry’s Appeals to Nostalgia

In the midst of accelerating crises, the past can offer a comforting retreat. Over the last year, we’ve not only been living through a global pandemic unlike any we’ve seen in generations, but the effects of climate change have become even clearer, and the economy once again threw people into turmoil as industries were disrupted and housing costs continued to soar. Faced with the stress and anxiety of events far beyond our personal control, hope for the future can retreat, leaving nostalgia to fill the void.

Halfway through the third episode of Apple TV+’s new extraterrestrial epic, Invasion, a Syrian immigrant named Ahmed stands outside a rural New York gas station, arguing with an angry white guy who wants him to move his Tesla so he can charge his own. “We’re all in this together,” Ahmed pleads. “This is our local gas station, Osama,” the white guy responds before giving him a shove.

Greg Gutfeld: No one is in charge, and no one cares

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
Happy Friday my fellow funky Friday folks. What a crazy week. It’s like one of Hemmer’s hot tub parties. Bad things are happening, but it’s okay because we’re all in this together.
First, last night’s town hall. What did we get from Joe? An incoherent jumble of memories, confused looks, but the best impersonation of Beavis and Butthead’s Cornholio in history.

CNN explains exactly why Joe Rogan is so popular

Joe Rogan’s recent podcast featuring CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta is a perfect microcosm for understanding why the public currently reports record-low levels of trust in the media.
What has been most telling about the conversation is CNN’s response in its wake. Take, for instance, the network’s morning show, New Day. After showing a heavily edited video of the conversation in an attempt to present Gupta in the best possible light, anchor Brianna Keilar stated, “I’m really glad you did this … there’s so many people that can listen to the sense that you make.

It’s the White House siccing the FBI on parents who question CRT nonsense

Attorney General Merrick Garland basically admitted Thursday that the White House contacted the Justice Department about that odious letter from the National School Boards Association begging the feds to use the Patriot Act against “domestic terrorist” parents who raise questions about critical race theory being pushed in their kids’ schools.
This is outrageous, even though Garland fudged on whether it was at the White House’s behest that he issued his remarkable public guidance.
