discern.org covers news, information and teaching on current issues in the visible church. Its aim is to direct readers back to Jesus Christ and His life, death and resurrection for sinners, as revealed in the Scriptures:
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you – unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
1 Cor. 15:1–8

This site links to both good (sound) and bad (unsound) resources. Be like the Bereans – they compared even the teaching of St. Paul with Scripture. You should therefore most certainly test everything that appears here:
These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. Acts 17:11
