This is the way the American political system works. Democrats/liberals are the counterweight to Republicans/conservatives. The constant teetering gives the impression of movement, but the status quo rarely changes. This has never been more evident than what has occurred in Congress since Obama was ‘handed his hat’ in the mid-term elections; except nothing has really changed. The teeter has tottered to Republican control of the Congress, yet the policies that Obama has pushed forward still remain in place.
Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California has given us the idea of the purpose driven church and the purpose driven life. So, what are “the five basic fundamentals” of the Christian faith? Where did they come from?
The truths of Biblical reality are under assault like never before. Whether it be the university classroom, the workplace, a military unit, or the political realm, the truths of the Bible are constantly under assault in our day. The Christian faithful must be prepared to take on all types of intellectual and emotional challenges and accusations against their faith.
When you study the history of the world, some of the most perilous times for any people are when a regime change takes place. I believe we are approaching, if we are not already into, a major regime change; not just in our land but around the world.
“Free health care!” “Free cell phones!” “I don’t have to make my car payment any more!” Such were the excited ravings that accompanied the political slogan/promise of “Hope and Change.” Really? Is that all hope and change amounts to…more “free stuff”? Given the opportunity, what would you hope for…for yourself, your family, for America? If you were “King of America” what changes would you make? You may protest and say there is no king in America, but history tells a different story.
Take any objective evil, say, homosexual sin. State its prefix, “homo.” Just add “phobia,” and voila! The person who holds to the millennia-old precepts of authentic biblical sexual morality is no longer a “Christian,” but, rather, is magically transformed into that mythical creature called “The Homophobe.” Cute. The same applies to so-called “Islamophobia.”
The highly anticipated 20th Century Fox release EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS opens in theaters nationwide today, December 12th. Faith Driven Consumer has given EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS a 2.5 out of 5 stars, meaning the film leans away from the biblical narrative and message.
One of the most powerful emotions within our souls is anger. The sense I have is that the palpable level of anger in America is rising. “The more we learn about government, the more we learn about central bankers, the more we learn about the military industrial complex, the more we learn about social justice and the environmental movement, the more we learn about the move towards world government, the more we learn about politicians and political institutions and the corruption, waste, fraud, abuse and negligence they oversee and profit by, the angrier we get.”
There are seven states including Maryland with language in their constitutions that prohibits people who do not believe in God from holding public office. And now, according to a recent New York Times article by Laurie Goodstein, a coalition of nonbelievers including atheists, agnostics, humanists and freethinkers, led and primarily funded by atheist Todd Stiefel, says it is time to get rid of these atheist bans because they are discriminatory, offensive and unconstitutional.
The world is dying. Not in a false-alarmist, “OMG-global-warming-is-going-to-kill-us-all!” sort of way. Rather, this world is passing away in a Romans 1, “The-wrath-of-God-is-being-revealed-from-heaven” sort of way. How very unsettling and confusing this must all be for those absent “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding.”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
