Beeching's God-fearing lyrics are sung by millions in America's Bible Belt. Vicky Beeching, 35, British star of the American Christian rock scene, one of the most successful artists in US mega-churches and now one of the most sought-after religious commentators in Britain, knows this too.

There is also no better way to destroy a group of people than to ensure they do the job for you. On the first occasion, Beeching, normally enlivening Radio 4's Thought for the Day or any number of Sunday morning TV discussion programmes, sits opposite me in a café in Soho. It is a précis she has written of her background: of growing up in a conservative Christian household in Kent, first in the Pentecostal Church then in the evangelical branch of the Church of England, of going to Oxford to study theology, of the EMI recording contract that sent her to Nashville 12 years ago and launched a successful singer-songwriting career… I turn the piece of paper over and look up to see her smiling nervously."I'm gay," she says, confirming what is written.

The United States is sliding into a dystopian Oz where the Wicked Witch and her ilk are in charge, Chaput contends, and he is not speaking in metaphor.
“Satan is a real personal being, a supremely intelligent spirit, a rebel against God and an enemy of everything human,” he writes.
Based on their readings of the Torah and other Biblical writings, these systems induced that the material world is created by an ignorant emanation of the highest God, trapping the Divine spark within the human body.
Chaput been raised Baptist or Methodist in his native Kansas, he might today be a circuit-riding, finger-wagging stump preacher, calling folks to repent their evil ways and “come to Jesus.” But this fierce evangelist was raised Roman Catholic.
He would become a priest, then a bishop, and today, at 72, is archbishop of Philadelphia.
Early in Genesis we find God’s design for marriage (Gen. This text describing the original marriage is the basis for almost everything else the Bible says about marriage.
It explains God’s reason for designing marriage and also gives us many principles which, if applied, will enable us to build marriages which honor God and bring lasting joy to us.
