Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?
From the outside, Joel Osteen lives a life the world covets. There’s just one problem with that. I can’t think of a single truly great figure in the 2,000-year history of Christianity who didn’t pay some kind of worldly price for defending the faith—beginning with Christ himself at the Cross. On the other hand, it seems as if the world is paying Osteen quite handsomely for the self-esteem gospel according to Joel.
He has become a light unto the Gentiles throughout the ages. He is the Great Comforter and He works in the hearts of men to do great things on His behalf. Flawed men laden with sin, have been driven upon their knees and submitted themselves unto the mercy and loving kindness of the anointed one. Filled with the Holy Spirit, they have enabled themselves to be used to advance the kingdom of God.
Ideas have consequences, and especially false ideas about God. The god of a particular culture is that entity which is above the law because it is the ultimate source of law. It is that to which all allegiance and loyalty is due. If that one to whom all loyalty is due is not the One True God, the God of the Bible, then that culture is worshiping an idol.
Friday, Rush Limbaugh, "America's REAL anchorman", commented on the nasty and godless Carol Costello's comments as she rejoiced with great glee over the abuse of Bristol Palin and the media coverage of late, which was a direct shot at the Palin family. Maybe Costello's envy and hatred for Mrs. Palin is because she sees in Sarah someone that she could NEVER be.
I guess I don't understand all the hubbub. Why are Houston's pastors objecting to turning over their sermons to the government? Haven't they told all of us to “obey the authorities?” Doesn't Romans 13 demand that we obey un-Godly government?
As the 2014 midterm elections heat up... expect the Left and the Main Stream Media to do whatever it takes to secure a leftist socialist progressive Democratic win and keep its lawless, bulldozer "a" rolling. Nothing will be beneath them as they use any lawless means to accomplishing this goal. These will seek to incite and stir up the rage of the masses of socially, subjective, lawless government dependents, godless women and the majority of African Americans who have been oppressed by white liberals policies for decades.
It is now beyond question that Christianity is under direct assault in the culture war. “The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity to Annise Parker, the city’s first openly daughter of Sodom mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.”
Dark forces are reigning and winning. But are they? I guess it's all a matter of where we stand. Maybe, we should take a cold, hard look where that is exactly. How firm is our foundation? Does our faith lie in a religious institution?
It’s no mystery why “iniquity will abound” in the last days. It’s because “the love of many will wax cold (Matthew 24:12).” But why is that? It’s because they do not know what love is. Love is the fulfilling of the Law of God. However, they want absolutely nothing to do with that law.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
