Obama Signs Secret Bill


This bill basically gives the secret service the right to declare what it deems to be "No Free Speech Zones." Any way you look at it, it is a violation of free speech and we are absolute idiots for letting him get away with it. I am really beginning to wonder if America doesn't just deserve Obama.

Diversity

While looking under "Spiritual Life" on a Christian school's website this is what I found. I'm sure that they have come a long way from what their founders had originally envisioned. The sad thing is that they sound so proud of their "diversity."

"Our school is a place where students from all faiths and at all places in their spiritual journeys are welcome. We're also a Christian college affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We are a diverse campus! We have Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, and Muslim students, and over a dozen spiritual groups on campus. Check our spiritual organizations on campus page to find one you're interested in - and if you don't find one to join, contact us. We'll help you start one!"

Prayer

God does not want to get us to a place where we don't have to pray about anything, but instead to a place where we have to pray about everything.

Be Ye Separate

The world wants us to look like 'em and talk like 'em, and act like 'em, but the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 that we are to not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  (15)  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  (16)  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  (17)  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,  (18)  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Dems' platform committee endorses 'gay marriage

If America puts this parties candidate (Barack Obama) back in office again, they deserve him. Of course, they deserved him the first time as well.

Dead Churches

I've come to understand that it takes spiritually dead people to maintain spiritually dead churches.

“Christian” Narcissism

"The focus of the Bible is not the work of the redeemed but the work of the Redeemer." This is a very interesting article by Pastor Tullian Tchividjian

Can We afford to Leave the Work to the Mega Church?

 "Dividing the annual budget of your church by the number of converts it reaches each year will reveal if your money is being spent to build the kingdom of God or maintain the club."

World Wants vs. God Wants

The world wants us to look like 'em and talk like 'em, and act like 'em, but God says through the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?  (15)  What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?  (16)  What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."  (17)  "Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you."  (18)  "I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

Absolute Truth

Today, we are taught that truth is relative, subjective and that there are no absolutes. I wonder if they are absolutely sure about that?

Revival, Part 1

Here is an excellent article by Pastor Brian Broderson of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Read it!

"As we look at certain events occurring in the United States and around the world we may wonder—where is it all heading? In the West, we see a growing hostility toward the Christian faith and its standard of morality. We see the promotion of a new and militant form of atheism. We see continued opposition to the idea of God as the Creator. We see the attempted normalization of behaviors that have always been considered wrong and sinful. The world certainly seems ripe for judgment as it attempts to rule the God of the Bible out of its affairs.We may ask ourselves—how much longer can it go on?"

Lying Pens

I could preach on this verse for quite a while with all the horrible translations of the Bible that are out there now!

‘How can you say, “We are wise, for we have the law of the Lord,” when actually the lying pen of the scribes
has handled it falsely?"

Jeremiah 7:28

"So you shall say to them, 'This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth."

Jeremiah 7:12

"But go now to My place which was in Shiloh, where I set My name at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of My people Israel."

“The Cluck Heard ’Round the World.”

“The hallmark of totalitarian regimes whether they be communist, fascist, or simply oppressive is to shut down the opposition, silence them, punish them. That's what the mayors of Boston and Chicago and San Francisco want to do, punish Chick-fil-A.” -  Bill O'Reilly

No New Commandment

1 John 2:7-11 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.  (8)  Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.  (9)  He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.  (10)  He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.  (11)  But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

We need to be honest with God and confess our feelings of hatred for another person, so that God can replace our hatred with His love.

Hate kills both the person who you hate, but also yourself as well. Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat.

Study Examines Youngsters of "Gay households"

Coming from a pretty left-leaning institution, this study is pretty interesting. Hopefully, the Democrats will take it into consideration when it comes time to vote on "same-sex" marriage? Doubt it. Besides, who wants to be distracted by facts when you have an agenda.

Dems Say 'I do' to Same-Sex Marriage

Well, there you go folks. The democrats are officially picking a side. How about you?

1Ki 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
