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

Declaratation Of Internet Dependence

When junk happens to sites, like lots of junk, coders and designers have to do what’s best.

No joke all sites are the same in this respect, all having certain FTP and htaccess rights. Rights to post, blog, and surf and be happy doing it. Hosting Companies get together to make sure these rights happen and the only reason they can do that is because Web Surfers says they can.

You guys just keep holding us down over here with our sites and, like r u joking? We're SO done with… Continue

Obama Is Not Pro-Life And Christians Ought Not Vote For Him

If Obama is pro-life then good has become evil. It is a sad state of things if Evangelicals are truly evenly split between Obama and McCain.

"Unkindly has He kindly shown me... God."

Someone close to me suffered great loss this week. In an attempt to explain themselves to others on facebook, they changed their profile to “When peace like a river attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll; whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say ‘It is well, it is well with my soul.”

Your faith, your hope, your unwavering trust in His goodness is a bittersweet, rich, testimony to the rest of us. Your heart in grief has a wonderful effect on us. Your willingness to… Continue

Why Christians Should Vote

Some time ago I wrote about how a Christian who stands on the Gospel is to act in regards to the government. But I want to address a different aspect by asking the following to us American Christians: should Christians vote?

The argument that is often posed against participation in the American government (be it in office or voting) is that as part of the Kingdom of God…

On the Edge.

I feel myself, again, to be on the brink of something great - and yet overly cautious to look out over the edge. I have long felt the need to hide from myself - and if I do not know me, the odds of you figuring me out are even greater.

But God knows. And He is in pursuit. I am not sure what exactly that looks like. I do not think it is for me to know either - sufficient for each day is its own trouble. But there is something there, when simple conversations on the phone make me want… Continue

Democrats Defend Fannie/Freddie

In this Blog and elsewhere I have stated my belief that the current economic crisis should be laid firmly at the feet of the Democrat Party.

Presented here for your perusal and edification is a video with clips from the 2004 House Committee Investigating illegal bookkeeping at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. The video runs 8.5 minutes and demonstrates through numerous clips how Democrats defended GSE's (Freddie Mac & Fannie May) and Franklin Raines, Jamie Gurlic and others.… Continue

As a practicing Christian, are there any laws or statutes that could cause us to sin and oppose our own human thinking--better known as "Liberty of Conscience"?

An example would be a police officer charging you with "Fleeing the Police" when there is no speeding or no damaged party and he verifies on his complaint that he's telling the truth under "Unsworn Falsification to Authorities". Personally, I see this as a violation of Hosea 4:6 for God's people being destroyed for lack of knowledge and 2 Thess. 2:11for God sending strong delusion to the unsaved for believing a lie. For whatever reason, several states have this statute or a similarly worded one… Continue
