Easter 2014: He is Risen!

Matthew 28:1-7 (New American Standard) Jesus Is Risen! 1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. 5 The angel said to the women, “Do […]

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil …

When reading the various news articles I can’t help but notice how bizarre everything has become. Bizarre probably isn’t a completely accurate descriptive word … it’s more like perverse. Yet “perverse” is quite acceptable and embraced by many, those of the more liberal persuasion honor that perverse trend in American society. Those of a more conservative persuasion are now looked upon as the enemy of progressive ideas. I noticed an article yesterday which was highlighting how Christians are not victims even though their values are and have been attacked relentlessly by those embracing perversion. I read in the piece that […]

In Nancy Pelosi’s Bible, Satan Wins!

Nancy Pelosi sure has some rather odd things to say.  Maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but based on Pelosi’s comments, I have to wonder whose side she is really on.  Actually, I have no doubt!  I caught this over at the Independent Sentinel… She invents Bible verses too. She said this but it’s nowhere to be found in the Bible. “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and […]

Was Craig James Fired by Fox Sports for Biblical View of Marriage?

If the claims are true, and Craig James was fired from Fox Sports for being a Bible believing Christian, it would be another sign that persecution is growing.  Breitbart has more… In exclusive comment to Breitbart News, former ESPN and CBS broadcaster and former Southern Methodist University and NFL star tailback Craig James criticized former employer Fox Sports Southwest for its firing of him two weeks ago over his public stance on same-sex marriage.  “I was shocked that my personal religious beliefs were not only the reason for Fox Sports firing me but I was completely floored when I read […]

Federal Government to Christian Charity, “Stop being Christian”

I’ve said before that instead of Marxism being Godless, it replaces the God of scripture with the far more petty god of the state.   And, it’s happening more and more here in the good old USSA.  See this from Gateway Pundit… A Christian ministry has been ordered by the Feds to remove all of their religious symbols if they want any federal assistance feeding the poor. … A Florida ministry that feeds the poor said a state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, […]

Pope Benedict, The Gang of 8, and Social Justice

When R.S. McCain  emails you and invokes the name of God, you probably ought to listen.  And, since I’ve been trying to closer to the supreme being as of late, I had little choice but to comply.  As for the reasoning for invoking the creator, it seems that the Pope has weighed in on the immigration issue.  R.S. McCain had addressed the immigration concern, so get over to his site and read that part. In an update, he really knocked it out of the park. He hit on one topic that often infuriates me-social justice… The duty of Christian charity […]

Army Orders Bible References Scraped From Equipment

It would seem that the Obama Military’s war on Christianity continues.  All references to the Bible and God must be removed, so even weapons must be sanitized.  Reagan Coalition has more… From Opposing Views: The US Army has ordered troops in Fort Wainwright, Alaska to completely remove Bible verses from their weapon scopes. The official order reads, “In accordance with included instructions remove the biblical reference from the indicated area of the M150RCO/ACOG. This biblical reference will include, but not be limited to JN8:12 and 2COR4:6.” These two engravings refer to John 8:12 and Second Corinthians 4:6. The two verses […]

A Rebellious Nation

A Rebellious Nation Isaiah 1 New International Version (NIV) 2 Hear me, you heavens! Listen, earth! For the Lord has spoken: “I reared children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me. 3 The ox knows its master, the donkey its owner’s manger, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.” 4 Woe to the sinful nation, a people whose guilt is great, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! They have forsaken the Lord; they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him. 5 Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole head is injured, your whole heart afflicted. […]

According the DHS and CIAC, We Christians are Taking God and the Bible “too Seriously”

And, the war on Christians continues to ramp up.  The Clash Daily has printed a letter from a Colorado law enforcement officer, who claims to have attended a training provided by CIAC, which is a “fusion center.”  These centers exchange information between state and local law enforcement agencies, and DHS.  We looked at how these centers work back in 2009, when the infamous DHS report was preceded by the equally offenseive MIAC report.  Here is the letter… From: r[email protected] To: [email protected] Subject: CSP Training Date: Fri, 5 Apr 2013 10:30:22 -0600 On April 1, 2013 I attended training in La […]

Are Those Who Believe in Traditional or Christian Beliefs Now to be Contemned?

Although I know that I risk the wrath of the Detroit News and others who would judge me for posting my personal feelings on this issue, I nonetheless have felt compelled to weigh in with some further thoughts about gay marriage that supplement my earlier posting about the Supreme Court having to be very careful with issuing a ruling on this matter that is legitimate. David Brody, the Christian Broadcasting Network News Chief Political Correspondent, noted in his post Are Evangelicals Now More Scorned than Homosexuals? that: …Direct from the school of, “Counter-Intuitive Thinking,” I bring you this question: When […]

Making Right Choices in the Face of Temptation

Have you ever noticed that when you are making great strides to be closer to the Lord, the more Satan attacks you and tempts you in your weakest areas? Satan does not want us to mature in our Christian walk. He does not want us to become like Christ and be holy. I don’t believe he is too worried when we go to church once a week and maybe attend a Bible study every now and then and read a devotional and say a short prayer once a day. But when we begin to allow Christ to transform us and […]

Piers Morgan Promotes Himself to God: Demands Bible be Amended

Unfortunately, Piers Morgan’s self promotion to turn the Holy Trinity into a quartet did not go through, and he remains at his current station: officious twit.  Apparently, Morgan had a double portion of his “unwarranted self importance flakes” prior to doing this interview… So, Piers Morgan promotes himself to being God, because HE thinks that HE knows what should be in the Bible. The Bible answers… 2 Timothy 3:16 New International Version (NIV) 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, But, as we all know, Mr. Morgan is a far higher authority […]

Chik-Fil-A Being Punished for Being Christian, Just as Predicted

Last November, I predicted that Chik-Fil-A would eventually be punished for their Christian beliefs.  Apparently, it is now time for the punishment to begin.  First up, they have lost the Muppets…. However, on Friday, the Jim Henson Company posted  the following statement to their Facebook page : The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Best not Believe in the Bible, Ya Hear?

Do you believe in the Bible?   Do you think that it is the literal word of God?  If so, you are likely a hateful monster that fervently desires the death of others.  At least that’s what our leftist friends would tell us.  After all, that’s what happened to Kirk Cameron, who was recently interviewed on CNN.  Here is an excerpt. Needless to say, Cameron, in his calm discussion of sin, created a crapstorm of controversy and hate. Cameron’s calm answer explaining his view that marriage “was defined by God a long time ago … one man, one woman for life” has drawn a firestorm […]

“Tolerance and Diversity” on Display: Biblical Stance on Homosexuality Bullying?

Ah, the left.  They live in a land of duckies and bunnies, with unicorns that fart rainbows.  And, if you ask them, they are by far the most tolerant, diverse, and loving people in all of the world…unless, that is, you disagree with them.  For those that have a different point of view, or have the audacity to engage in dissent, all pretenses of “tolerance” disappears.  Dissenters are ridiculed, accused, accosted, punished, and sometimes physically attacked.  For, you see, tolerance is a one way street for our liberal friends.  For the latest example of this “tolerance,” we have to look at the […]

Outrageous Double Standard: US Military Burns Bibles

Apparently Don’t ask and Don’t tell extends to religion as well as sexual preference, at least in Afghanistan. In light of the administrations efforts to quash the 1st Amendment rights of a Florida pastor who wanted to burn Korans I thought it appropriate to revive this story you probably never heard anyway. Here is the transcript of the above video: May 20, 2009 The Situation Room. BLITZER: Meanwhile, the U.S. military is caught in a raging controversy over bibles that were burned. Some Christian groups are furious that Americans were involved in what they consider to be an unthinkable act […]

Easter

Jesus Rises from the Dead FROM MATTHEW 28:1-7 (NLT) Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to see the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, because an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled aside the stone and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint. Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you […]
