Oklahoma School Bans Pastor From Leading Team Prayer
An Oklahoma school district has banned a local Baptist pastor from praying with a high school football team following a complaint filed by a leading atheist legal group.
Putnam City Schools will no longer allow the Rev. Mike Keahbone of Cherokee Hills Baptist Church to lead the Putnam City High football team in prayer, the Freedom From Religion Foundation has announced in a news release.
Over the past two years, Keahbone has become one of the most prominent and visual supporters of the Putnam City Pirates football team as he has led an initiative to get his church community more involved to support players whose parents aren't able to go to the games themselves....
Their is No King but Christ Alone, what a privilege itâ€™s to proclaim that Christ came to help rescue those, who could never help their own selves ever amen!
Author unknown; Why is the Atheistâ€™s main target always Jesus of Nazareth, & never Buddha, Confucius, or Mohammed? Why is the aspiring athleteâ€™s target always the true champion & never the also-rans?
Thomas Brooks; He that doth nâ€™t believe that there is a God, is more vile than a devil. To deny there is a God, is a sort of atheism that isnâ€™t to be found in hell.
Their are No Atheists, just surepressuers of His Truth, that we all fell into, the Lord reaching down into our own spiritual pits of bondage amen.
Rom 1:18-22 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power & Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they didnâ€™t glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, & their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 2:14-15 for when Gentiles, who donâ€™t have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although nâ€™t having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, & between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them )
"is there anyone alive in america today with the faith of Elijah or the first miissionaries to England or the heroes of the faith of the centuries?"
I'm not sure, I can't measure people's faith, but here are a few people I look up to:
1. James White 2. John MacArthur 3. The late R.C. Sproul 4. Steve Lawson 5. Paul Washer 6. Ray Comfort 7. Albert Mohler (however you spell his last name)
All of these people have a heart for missions and evangelism, all of them preach the gospel, & on a side note, it's interesting, Ray Comfort is the only one who is not a Calvinist
hmm...something to think about, & to my knowledge, Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, John Owen, John Bunyan, Richard Baxter, most (if not all) of the KJV bible translators, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, David Brainard, Charles Spurgeon, George MÃ¼ller, Hudson Taylor, etc. was a Calvinist.
I can assure you, that you won't find that interesting piece of info on your Snapple bottle cap ðŸ˜€
what a loss for the families of that school district to not have a Godly man praying for them!
at the same time the satanic temple of Jefferson City, Missouri is suing against the provision in law for women to be talked to about the life of the unborn.
the Christians out
in come the satanists...
is there anyone alive in america today with the faith of Elijah or the first miissionaries to England or the heroes of the faith of the centuries?
or is faith relegated to misapplying OT prophecies to justify oil and gas expansion in places where Christians have existed since the time of Christ and maybe even have testimony to following God since the preaching of Jonah?
but one generation believed enough to wipe that out..... ah yes, REvelations, being fulfilled, as it says, "unless there be a great falling away..." (ie apostasy, not rapture)
turns out.... they were called to more than just being a "paranethesis in history", God's will poured out throughout time....for the redemption of some and the judgment of others.
