The survey found that almost seven in 10 Americans believe God is perfect, and two-thirds accept the resurrection of Jesus.

Sixty-six per cent agree ‘God accepts the worship of all religions, including Christianity, Judaism and Islam.’

When it comes to beliefs about goodness and sin, more than three-quarters doubt sin has eternal consequences and two-thirds think most people are good by nature… Read the full article here >>

America: Then vs. Now. It’s Almost Unbelievable.

Newsweek magazine, on December 27, 1982, in an article entitled How the Bible Made America, made this revealing statement: „Historians are discovering that the Bible, perhaps even more than the Constitution, is our Founding document.”

To understand the core values of a nation, one must simply look to the beliefs set forth during its conception, and, in the case of America, during the transitional years of the American Revolution. Judge for yourself how far we have drifted from the original intent of early Americans. Consider the following…’

VIOREL IUGA – Vă chem să ne angajăm la 100 de zile de rugăciune pentru preşedintele Trump…….

agnus dei - english + romanian blog


Un grup de slujitori duhovniceşti cheamă creştinii din America, începând de mâine 20 ianuarie, la 100 de zile de rugăciune pentru preşedintele Trump. Având în vedere puterea rugăciunii, responsabilitatea noastră, dar şi influenţa Americii în lume, vă chem să ne angajăm în această rugăciune şi noi. Să ne rugăm pentru preşedintele Trump şi pentru America.

klaus-iohannis-foto-presedintele-romanieiÎn acelaşi timp, cu multă umilinţă, credinţă şi curaj, să ne rugăm pentru România, pentru preşedintele Iohannis, pentru parlamentari, etc. Uitarea sau neglijenţa noastră nu schimbă realitatea. Suntem angajaţi într-o luptă spirituală permanetă şi puternică. Avem de luptat împotiva multor duhuri demonice care au capturat şi controlează societatea contemporană. Care ne sunt şansele? Răspunul vine şi din evenimentele pe care le-am sărbătorit recent. Întruparea Fiului lui Dumnezeu a schimbat lucrurile într-un mod radical. Domnul Isus Cristos a venit să distrugă lucrările celui rău. El l-a înfrânt pe Satan şi ne asigură că putem câştiga…

Anne Graham Lotz: 3 Sins America Refuses to Repent For

„God is abandoning America, Anne Graham Lotz says, because we abandoned Him and refuse to repent for three specific sins: abortion, abandoning Israel and gay marriage. 

„I don’t think we are too far gone, but I believe we are reaching the point of no return,” Lotz said in a video. 

The evangelist says our country easily fulfills Romans 1, which details how God gave man over to sin. 

„God just backs away and gives us over in His first path in this downward spiral to sexual immorality. That is the sexual revolution, that is free sex, which actually is very expensive,” Lotz says…”
