How Should A Christian Act Under A President He Didn’t Want?

A lot of Democrats (including those of the Christian persuasion) have been making a lot of noise about Obama winning the Presidency. They haven't been making as much noise about a Democrat House and Senate but the noise has been there nevertheless. At points some of these same people (Christians included) come up to me and say "So what are you going to do now that McCain lost?" My answer is exactly the same if McCain had won.

You see as I said in my…

My Open Letter to Barack Obama

Dear President Elect Obama

Congratulations. You ran a great campaign. Your historic achievement is a great step for America racial relations. I did not vote for you. But you will be my President. I will honor you with the respect that your office deserves. For years, you have been on the outside of the White House looking in. It is easy to be critical from that perspective. But the view from the inside looking out is a much different perspective. So above all, I will pray for you. I will… Continue

Reflections on Election 2008

There is absolutely no doubt that what we witnessed in this country on the eve of Tuesday, November 4, 2008 was an historic event. For the first time ever, a majority of voters chose Barrack Obama, a man of African descent, to be the president of the United States of America. It is hard to classify him as a minority since his mother is a white woman, but he has been identified as an African American. It is an historic event because of the history of race relations in this country. Only 40 years… Continue

I want to cuss this dude out!

A friend of mine recently posted on another site that he "...is comforted that God's will is always best. Let's obey the Word-1 Timothy 2:1-2 (Pray for him) Matthew 5:13-16 (be salt and light in our sphere of influence)."



to which a friend of HIS (not mine) replied:



"...that he will get saved or be taken from this world as soon as possible if he won't."



So not only is NSA all over this dude by now, no doubt, but is this any way a Christian should really respond?… Continue

Regret or Discipline: Choose



In life we all ultimately have to choose between two pains: the pain of regret or the pain of discipline.



No one but God knows the consequences of our country’s choice yesterday, but we do know that living with those consequences is inevitable. It is a reality of life. We can all blame the establishment for getting us into our current financial mess. But if we are all really honest with ourselves and examine our own bank accounts and… Continue

Time To Prepare For What Is Likely To Come

We need to get ready for what I think will come under a President Obama. Especially since Obama has strong collectivist/Marxist leanings.

Rey's DAFFODIL: A Non-Calvinistic Position

At this stage in my life I have moved from a Calvinistic system through an Arminian system, back to a Calvinistic position towards something else that I don't know what to call but I know it’s not Calvinistic and some may even say it's Arminian though I don't know. I wanted to state with broad strokes what I think about TULIPPS in particular without citing the verses (for now) since they're often the same verses that both Calvinists and Arminians cite but usually embedded in their broader… Continue

I love this song

Lead me to the cross

Savior I come

Quiet my soul...remember

Redemptions hill

Where Your blood was spilled

For my ransom

Everything I once held dear

I count it all as lost



Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Lead me, lead me to the cross



You were as I

Tempted and trialed

You are

The word became… Continue

Stepping Into The DMZ

"I wanted to remind people that the division is not only two countries but the world. And visiting the DMZ; the view was spectacular, and a real sightseeing adventure, looking into the past, historically and hopefully looking into the future peacefully".



Category: Current Affairs: A visit to The DMZ in North Korea.



The DMZ (the demilitarized zone) above the 38th parallel between North Korea and South Korea. The DMZ stretches across the Korean Peninsula from East to… Continue

Nothing New Under the Sun.

What I love about reading really old books (right now that would be Bondage of the Will by Luther) is that you rediscover there really is nothing new under the sun. It is amazing in seeing what Luther had to say to Erasmus, how much he could have been talking to the Emerging Church at large.



Erasmus had this to say about his own faith “If it were permitted [me], by the inviolable authority of the sacred Writings and decrees of the church [I] would go over to the sentiments of the… Continue

Countdown to Election 2008- Vote McCain

There is a "statistical dead-heat among born again Christians, with 45 per cent planning to vote for McCain and 43 per cent, for Obama" according to a Barna survey released last Wednesday.



This is truly shocking when one considers Obama's radically pro-abortion views and his liberal stance on so many issues. Obama's fervor to protect a woman's choice or right to abortion extends to voting against measures that would protect babies born alive after a failed abortion. If elected, he… Continue

Law of the Land vs. Law of the Sea: How are Christians or anyone else, able to obey both sets of laws?

With reference to Acts 5:29 telling us to obey God rather then men, our U.S. Congress passed two statutes into law that are in direct opposition to each other. They are P.L. 97-280 for declaring the Holy Bible to be the word of God and P.L. 102-14, known as "EDUCATION DAY U.S.A."--which recognizes the (7) Noahide Laws that Gentiles must obey under Judaism.



What makes these Noahide Laws dangerous, is that anyone who believes Jesus is God--is guilty of "Idol Worship" and "Blasphemy".… Continue

Thoughts on the Election

I’ve made it pretty clear in recent weeks that Barack Obama is a socialist at best whose followers are either blissfully ignorant of his coercive collectivism or just flat lying about what they want to do to the rest of us.



He’s dropped enough hints. Obama favors wealth redistribution, new fronts in the war on terror (Pakistan and Sudan, along with a surge in Afghanistan), and a civilian national… Continue

Standing Against Brian McLaren's Matthew 25 Network

Since I actually get comments in here, I'll post another blog to see the response....



At what point does another Christian's sin become so blatant that we must respond? I think that time has come for Brain McLaren and the other Christians involved in The Matthew 25 Network. Not only have they claimed Barack Obama to be pro-life or that pro-life Christians can vote for Obama without… Continue

Negative vs. Positive Coverage in the Presidential Election


Just read this from the Pew Research Center.

I had a bit of an inkling that Obama was getting more coverage - but McCain WAY more negative coverage??

Does this effect how ya'll see the race or the media? Or do you think it even matters?

International Call for the Rights and Dignity of the Human Person and the Family

Hey all.



On December 10th, radical pro-abortion groups will present petitions asking the UN General Assembly to make abortion a universally recognized human right.



We have met the challenge and you can help.



We have initiated a petition drive that calls for governments to interpret the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as protecting the unborn child from abortion. Along with a coalition of pro-life groups from around the world, we will present our… Continue

The Idol Moloch Is Being Worshipped Once Again

Christians are tolerating human sacrifice under the new name of the idol Moloch which is "choice". I'd rather err on the cautious side of protecting the unborn then the reckless murder of them by Liberals. My concern is how Christians in America have compromised and tolerated and even promoted sin by having values more in line with the world then with God's Word. Barack Obama accepted… Continue

The Ghosts On My Window





The Ghosts On My Window





It happened about two weeks ago. I was sitting in my office and all was quiet

I heard a big crash as if one of the neighbor children had thrown a hard packed snowball at the window. I went to investigate, walking over to the large picture window in the

living room that faces my side yard. Everything seemed in order, the birds were

busy at the feeder, sun bright on the nearly foot of… Continue
