WATCH: Greg Laurie Has Some Striking Words for the Next Generation of Gospel Preachers

Published

on

Did Jesus ever worry much about being culturally relevant?

Not really.

In fact, the Messiah, during His ministry on earth, actually spent an awful lot of time exposing the trends and traditions of the day that deviated from the eternal wisdom found in the Holy Scriptures.

In a world that is dark and dying, it’s hard not to feel desperate in our fulfillment of the Great Commission to share the Gospel with everyone we meet.

It seems that many today have no interest in the dusty old Gospel, it can be tempting to try to make the Gospel fit into the world, rather than save the world with the Gospel.

Greg Laurie, who was saved as a young man through a youth Bible study, has an important warning for the next generation: worry more about the Gospel than you do about the ways of the world.

Or, as he put it, be careful not to “sacrifice the Gospel for ‘coolness.'”

“I was a 17-year-old kid. I was using drugs every single day. I was going in the wrong direction in my life,” Laurie says, in a recent video posted to Christian video service PureFlix’s Facebook page.

Laurie is the founder of Harvest Crusade and Harvest America, and currently serves as the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California.

As a teenager, his life was changed forever when he came across a Bible study on the lawn of his high school.

As he listened in on the study, he heard the words that would forever change his life: “Jesus said, ‘You’re for me, or against me.'”

At that moment, he asked himself: “Am I against Jesus?”

He says the question so touched his heart that he accepted Christ that very same day.

He is now sharing this message for those, young and old, who are in the same position he was, and also explains why he believes America may soon witness a second Jesus revolution.

Lord, we know your Word is what our nation sorely needs!

Pure Talk with Greg Laurie

Greg Laurie is one of the most well-known preachers in America. Before accepting Christ, his early years were characterized by a lack of faith, drugs and a move in the “wrong direction.”Here's his story — and the reason he believes God could usher in another Jesus revolution in America.

Widow Of Man Mary Trump Said Was Paid To Take SAT For President Trump Denies Claim

Published

on

The widow of a former friend of President Trump’s has come out and denied a claim that her late husband was paid to take the SAT for him, a claim that comes from the pages of a new book by Mary Trump, the president’s niece. Pam Shriver, who is a former tennis superstar and current tennis analyst, responded to the claim by denying any knowledge of her late husband, Joe Shapiro, having ever took the standardized test for the president. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: “When you put somebody’s name in print in a book, you want to make sure the facts around it are correct, especially if they are not living because it’s not like Joe is here and he would have known how to deal with this,” Shriver said in a video posted to social media on Wednesday. She also said her late husband met Trump during their time at the University of Pennsylvania, which would have been years after the president had taken the SATs, because he originally went to Fordham University for two years before transferring. “My late husband Joe Shapiro passed away 21 years ago. He was a man of great integrity, honesty; he was a hard worker. He was literally the smartest person I ever met,” Shriver added. The book by Mary Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man contains the following passage concerning the allegation: “To hedge his bets, he enlisted Joe Shapiro, a smart kid with a reputation for being a good test taker, to take his SATs for him. That was much easier to pull off in the days before photo IDs and computerized records. Donald, who never lacked for funds, paid his buddy well.” There’s no actual proof this event…

Supreme Court Says Manhattan District Attorney Is Allowed To Obtain Trump Tax Returns

Published

on

A new ruling handed down from the Supreme Court states that President Trump’s accountants will have to release years of financial records and tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney, ruling that he doesn’t have immunity from a grand jury investigation in NYC. Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who also happens to be a Democrat, a fact which will surprise absolutely no one, will now be allowed to the see returns in question after the justices voted 7-2 in favor of the release of the tax returns being released. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s two appointees to the court, joined the majority. However, Trump prevailed in the second case as the justices said it would not allow Congress to obtain tax and financial records, kicking the issue back to the lower courts. Unlike other recent presidents, Trump has refused to publish his tax returns and other financial papers that would provide a snapshot of his wealth. Back in May, there was three hours of oral testimony held by teleconference in which lawyers went back and forth over whether or not the House of Representatives and a New York prosecutor could subpoena Trump’s banks and accounting firm for his financial documents. There are three House committees who are seeking to get a peek at records from Mazars, the accountants for the Trump Organization, and two banks that gave loans to several Trump businesses. Democratic leaders think that the documents in question will give insight into whether or not Trump borrowed cash from, or had dealings with, Russian companies before taking office. Yes, that’s right. The left is still harping on the Russia nonsense, digging and rooting through every bit of garbage they can find to uncover whether or not there’s some sort of connection between…
