Recently I saw a meme being shared around which is meant to be a slam on the Star of David, a beloved symbol of Judaism as well as Messianic movements like Jews for Jesus and it is also the symbol on Israel's flag. The meme reads as follows: "This symbol was condemned in the Old Testament. This symbol was condemned in the New Testament. King David had nothing to do with this symbol. So why on earth are you standing by it?". On the sides is two prooftexts, which are Amos 5:26 and Acts 7:43. Let's see what these verses say. Amos 5:26-But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves. Acts 7:43-Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon. Here's the problem. The people who hold to these verses to prove the Star of David is an idol are only assuming that the star mentioned in both

Back in March of 2019, a church in West Virginia called Freedom Ministries church ended up being burned down. When firefighters came to the scene, they found bibles inside the local church, completely untouched. Many Christians who saw the news said it was nothing short of a miracle. However, did you ever think that the fact that the building burnt down but not the bibles implies a deeper and overwhelming message to humanity? Well, consider how the apostles worshiped back in the book of Acts: Acts 2:46-And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Acts 5:42-And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. Judging from these two passages, the apostles met and worshiped in houses and not in big church buildings. Granted, the passages also mention meeting in a temple, which is probably the temple of Jerusalem. However, I do not

Hello to all my subscribers, and to all those who may have just come across "The Godly Dragon" for the first time. My real name is Ethan Horn, but how I choose to represent this ministry is with a golden dragon named Percival. Here's some history on how The Godly Dragon came to be. I started the ministry in January 2016, back when I was almost 22. I wanted to use my dragon sona to preach the Gospel to lost souls, first and foremost with the furry fandom in mind, and to review media from a Christian perspective. I wanted to use my talents, interests, and favorite things to change the world. When I first made the ministry, I didn't think that it would get anywhere. I just did it as a hobby because I wanted to. In fact, it started out rough and I hit many snags and made some bad decisions before I made it into the ministry it is today. Early videos I made in the beginning of this ministry consisted of reviews of movies, starting out with War Room and Jurassic World.
