The Daily Caller: “PHILADELPHIA — The Democratic National Convention has curtained off several “interfaith” spaces for prayer, but the only sign of religion in any of the spaces is Islam.

Convention goers looking to get in touch with the god of their choice can visit the “Interfaith Prayer Room” on the first floor of the Wells Fargo Center, which consists of a series of spaces sectioned off by curtains. A sign hangs over the first space, which is simply an empty room.

The second area has a few chairs and some prayer mats. A third large space is set up to accommodate Muslims, with a mat set up on the floor presumably facing Mecca and a sanitizing station so Muslims can wash before they pray.

A fourth space is another large empty room. Aside from Islam, no sign of any other religion was present.

Opinion: The obvious answer is that a cross might upset Muslims and according to the left-leaning Washington Post, the number of Muslim delegates attending the Democratic National Convention has quadrupled since 2004, according to a Muslim advocacy group.

“The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations counts more than 100 Muslim delegates representing some 20 states at the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., this week. That’s up from 25 delegates in 2004, according to CAIR.”

The sad part of this story is that we now have an answer as to why out of 61 speakers on Monday not 1 mentioned ISIS.

Christianity Today: “Tim LaHaye, the best-selling author best known for the Left Behind series, “graduated to heaven” early this morning after suffering a stroke at age 90.

His family announced the news of his passing at a San Diego hospital on his ministry Facebook page.

Opinion: It was 1995 when “Left Behind” was published. I was on the road to becoming a Christian but really had no idea what that meant. I had been curious about Bible prophecy since Hal Lindsey’s Late Great Planet Earth and when I head about Tim LaHaye’s book I could not wait to read it.

The book captured my imagination. I waited for each new book in the series with great anticipation for the next few years, but it would not take root until October 2000 on a flight from Dallas to San Diego.

It was a few years before that time that my wife started attending BSF classes and before long announced to me that she had become born again.

Having spent most of my life in a denomination that required all kinds of works to attain salvation, I had no idea what that meant. But I thought that if she did not stop these classes it might take a toll on our marriage.

It didn’t take long for me to realize she was not going to stop Bible study and since we had two little boys, 5 and 3, it occurred to me I better find out what it was she was learning.

I started to read the New Testament on my own. No matter how hard I tried I still could not grasp how a person could be born again if that person kept on sinning.

On that flight to California, a fellow in a tweed sport coat sat next to me. I had a Bible on my lap and was planning to try to figure out this born again thing when the guy in the sport coat, who I had been trying to ignore, kept talking to me.

By the time we took off we were on a first name basis. He asked me what I did for a living, after telling him I was on my way to a Wall Street business conference, I asked him what he did.

He told me he was a professor at the Southern Baptist Seminary. With that I lifted the Bible from my lap, and told him my dilemma.

For the next three hours we looked at passages from Acts, Romans, and Ephesians, as the legalism that had bogged me down for all those years disintegrated.

By the time the last book of the Left Behind series was out in 2005, I was blessed to find another mentor in Jack Kinsella’s Omega Letter Fellowship, that lasted until his death in 2013.

God is good.

FBI Rewrites Federal Law To Let Hillary Clinton Off The Hook

National Review: “In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require. The added intent element, moreover, makes no sense: The point of having a statute that criminalizes gross negligence is to underscore that government officials have a special obligation to

Behind every article is the exhortation to believers to get back into the Word of God instead of being “carried about by every wind of doctrine,” and to equip them with materials to help them walk in
