Newsweek Labels Christian Org. Values Voter Summit As A ‘Hate Group’ Ahead Of President Trump Appearance

Actual Newsweek Headline: “Donald Trump To Speak At Hate Group’s Annual Event, A First For A President”

The ‘hate group’ is the Christian, Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit.

The source Newsweek used to condemn a Christian Org. as a “hate group” was the radically Left and incredibly biased source the Southern Poverty Law Center. Continue reading “Newsweek Labels Christian Org. Values Voter Summit As A ‘Hate Group’ Ahead Of President Trump Appearance”

Newsweek On The Bible

newsweekcover2015-225x300Newsweek will begin the New Year with an article on the Bible that is little more than a screech.  An Albert Mohler article stated, “So, when Newsweek, now back in print under new ownership, let loose its first issue of the New Year on the Bible, I held out the hope that the article would be fair, journalistically credible, and interesting, even if written from a more liberal perspective.”

“But Newsweek‘s cover story is nothing of the sort. It is an irresponsible screed of post-Christian invective leveled against the Bible and, even more to the point, against evangelical Christianity. It is one of the most irresponsible articles ever to appear in a journalistic guise.”

A closer look at the Newsweek cover story by Michael A.H. Back.
I’m going to give a few details to show why this is, as the comment above claims, “an irresponsible screed of post-Christian invective leveled against the Bible and, even more to the point, against evangelical Christianity. It is one of the most irresponsible articles ever to appear in a journalistic guise.”

This part of this article is completely wrong:

“No television preacher has ever read the Bible. Neither has any evangelical politician. Neither has the pope. Neither have I. And neither have you. At best, we’ve all read a bad translation—a translation of translations of translations of hand-copied copies of copies of copies of copies, and on and on, hundreds of times.

About 400 years passed between the writing of the first Christian manuscripts and their compilation into the New Testament. (That’s the same amount of time between the arrival of the Pilgrims on the Mayflower and today.)”

First error: “Translations of translations of translations of hand copied copies of copies of copies, and on and on, hundreds of times…”

Actually, the oldest manuscripts of the NT are from the second century, and are likely only a few dozen copies out from the originals; maybe even closer than that. And no modern bibles are translations of translation of translations. All of them go back to the Greek, which is NOT a translation, as there is no evidence any of the New Testament was written in Aramaic originally. Greek is the original language of the NT.

Who Owns Newsweek Magazine?

8431849810_87844d1666_q_question-mark-thinkingWho owns Newsweek Magazine?  In 2013,  International Business Times (IBTimes) acquired Newsweek, the acquisition included the Newsweek brand and its online publication.  IBT CEO Etienne Uzac, a Californian electrical engineering graduate owns 55 percent of the company and chief content officer Johnathan Davis, a French-South African economist owns 45 percent of the company.

The acquisition of Newsweek by IBTimes was made without taking on outside investors by two men who have no background in news, media or publishing but are the subject of reports linking them to David Jang, a controversial Korean pastor who is also the founder of Olivet University.  Davis’ wife, Tracy, is the university’s president, reports the Guardian.

Forbes reports, “Doubt that IBT could be paying for all of its hiring and real estate with nothing more than the ads it serves to 13 million readers has been fueled by reports of the founders’ close ties to Korean religious leader David Jang, Olivet University and the World Evangelical Alliance. The fact that neither Uzac nor Etienne had any background in news, media or publishing before starting the site also seemed odd.” Continue reading “Who Owns Newsweek Magazine?”
