I believe the federal judicial system has always had a secular mindset. When judges are politically appointed, they'll sift thru the constitution and find a reason for their political view and rule in that case. In regards to gay rights over freedom of religion- Joe Biden said it first- gay rights trump freedom of religion. If you don't believe elections matter then keep staying home, eventually they'll come for everyone as long as Christians aren't will to vote their God given right in this nations elections. An unelected society hates and fears freedom living moral people. Christian morality is the only intellectually honest form of government. We talk about Obama leading behind, look no further than the Christian voter or non voter as your example.
As a southern baptist, this action grieves the Holy Spirit beyond measure. Baptists are autonomous and independent in their decisions. However, in that category a church is still able to decide to be apostate. Fear should grip this denomination that the same evil will filter to other churches like that of the plague of Egypt. I'm am both saddened for a group of souls who look about them and decide that hell is the most fortunate place for themselves. Sin is ever before the church and we will either be in an ever purposefully sanctifyiing ourselves for Godliness or we will be apostate. If this article does not call us to repentance then pray your pastor doesn't decide to lead his church to Hell.
In the way back machine of my youth, our television broke and my dad announced we would read for entertainment for the summer. Best entertainment is still reading, turn off the tv, open up the Good book , read your McCheyne or for the adventurous Prof Roberts reading plan and finish the evening with an Elmer Kelton western. Priceless.
The US plans on allowing 90,000 Muslims to immigrate into this nation. There are numerous Islamic city states in the United States. It no surprise that the fundamental change of America continues. A prayer room is for those coming in and for those leaving. The next president we elect may be our last.
The Obama administration runs back to " we shouldn't have been in Iraq, that's why this all happening". This is why they are supporting the Iranian military in their bid to take a lead in the Middle East. If we thought GW Bush was ill advised by his intelligence team, (psst, Saddam Hussain Sent his wmd's to Syria and Iran) then look no further than Barrack Hussain Obama and Valerie Jarrett for creating the vacuum for the ruinous middle Eastern policy. And to have Hilary Clinton as your president will only exasperate a runaway nuclear proliferation between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Why, Russia and China will only feel obligated to build a naval base, anywhere they want.
I have a feeling the Franklin will agree to not have the salary at that price. Before he was in the news pontificating on everything , his work with Samaritans Purse had better access to predominately Islamic countries, South America, Asia, and Eastern Europe. That said, I believe his emergency relief / missional work rivals IMB or for that matter the UN or FEMA. His organization is there during the Haiti earthquake, Katrina, as far back as the Iranian earthquake of 1990. If there is a disaster Samaritans Purse is there. We're we?
There is an art in the printing and binding of books, especially the bible, my pride shows up when I spy a certain bible "on sale". Best buy I ever made was a Cambridge concord wide margin in calfskin- I kid not, 7.75. Marked down 90%. Unbelievable, seems the bible store wanted to rid itself of quality in order to stock up on whatever mess Zondervon was pushing.
The churches of Christ in the United States are a devided lot. They include the Disciples of Christ, were the first or ordain women and homosexuals. They also include the Church of Christ which is fonded mostly in the south of US. Their services are accapella, they take communion every Sunday, and have taught baptistismal regeneration. They are exclusive in that they near border being a Christian sect, much like Mennonite or Quakers. Most are male dominated in being elder led. Most are very kind and fine people , but we're established on the basis that most denominations had left their moorings and the coc represents the first century church, excluding tougues or healings. They are amillinienial, conservative and very Arminian.
The great retreat by American rchristianity has brought us to this point. Churches , many fundamental, historical reformed, left others to assign a new orthodoxy. The Charismatic/ pentacostsl movement stripped churches of their members, and cults and sects took the ignorant. Like the days of Amos, the American church was stripped by the locusts of consumerism, statism , cultism and atheist Christianity cut the heart out of the American Christian church. That said, the secular movement in this country is perhaps over 100 years in the making, if the pastor understands his viewpoint will take 50 years to undertake then he need only look at the prolife movement has made great strides, yet it took 45 years for state governments to begin dismantling this American holocaust. Otherwise, the pastor makes the precise point for secession, the true Obama legacy.
The pope appears to enjoy high political drama. By embodying himself as another judge placed in our nation for life to disrupt and imprison the innocent and encourage tyranny and wrap himself in light. Sounds like an everyday service from the US judicial system.
Senator Cruz is about as close to being a Christian Identitst as is Rand Paul. They believe that providence has begot the founding of our nation and our nation parallels ancient Isreal in many ways as the ebb and flow of the nations fabric is stretched and torn with various trials. As an aside, if inquiring for assistance , I have found in my experience , Senator John Cornyn of Texas does an exceptional job.
In the end of this campaign, we won't have anyone to vote for because they all will pledge their support to gay marriage. The Supreme Court made this law ; though it is unconstitutional , this law will be tyrannical in application. Yet, irregardless, they made Roe v Wade, and it was law made from nothing( right of privacy doesn't exist) or is for pursuit of life liberty and happiness. Our country hates life, shuns liberty but is stupid on happiness. And our enemies are thrilled.
Harry Reid a Mormon and he like most are about the business of the world. Harry is a crude, lost soul who has vexed the Senate and our nation for his own purposes. The Mormon mafia has always been the enforcer of home rule in Utah and Nevada. Their religion befits this man.
Off site jails are probably more common than we'd like think. The Federal giovernment has used off site detainment centers to extract information. Most detainment centers permitted torture as a by product of extracting information for national security. Now in Chicago, those folks detained probably don't have a means to give a bribe, inform on other perps, so the Chicago police moves to another location for "cleaning da city for da mayor or government inspections, ka peech" Aw the Chicago way
Back in the 90's Micheal J Fox, Al Gore and Christopher Reeves were all pushing fetal gene studies. Well, and here we are. Go ask Micheal J Fox or Al Gore , how it workin for you. I think that at one Al Gore used too roar, " with this study, Christopher Reeves will get up and walk someday". And America clapped, cheered and went on with the next entertaining show. Can you imagine the " harvesting " that goes on in one child nations such as China or Russia, and Eastern Europe. This is a world wide form of genocide, the UN pushes abortion , and we fund it.
I can't help but think that he is bringing the whole of paganism, tyrannical governmental intrusion, and false gospel under one banner. I'm sure there's an end game, but it looks too prophetic to the discerned.
