The cup of Christ

Luke 22:42 "Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done."

What was in this cup Jesus wanted removed from Him?

Was it the beatings, the spit in the face, the crown of thorns being thrust into His sinless flesh? Was it the sudden fists to His face, the scourging with whips, or the cross he would be nailed to? Was it the mocking or the humiliation? Was it the physical pain He would endure?

Absolutely Not! Any other teaching is pure blasphemy. Many sin filled people today and those who walked and talked with Jesus in the flesh, took on such worldly suffering with joy!

The cup contained the perfect justice and the fullness of God's wrath for our sins, once and for all!

Think about this the next time you want to reduce God's holiness, excuse your sin and rebellion to God, pervert His perfect word, or reduce it to a man made standard of holiness.

My warning to all so called followers of Christ:
Don't be the body, the false disciple, the flesh and or worldly motivated hand at the table of Jesus Christ.

Luke 22:19-21: 19 And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
20 And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.
21 "But behold, the hand of the one betraying Me is with Mine on the table.



Let us testify and bear witness to God who became human flesh and dwelt among us. Let us do so with joy and the perfect eternal security we have in Christ Jesus, no matter what our circumstances.

No compromise, then and now.


Marin Luther:
"Here is lack of understanding, for understanding proves by the Word that such patchwork is not according to God's will, but that doctrine, faith and worship must be preserved pure and unadulterated; there must be no mingling with human nonsense, human opinions or wisdom."
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 (NASB)
14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?
16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, "I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 17 "Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.
May we continue to grow and learn together, but may we never compromise the authority of God's word.
1 Timothy 6:20-21 (NASB)
20 Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”–
21 which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith Grace be with you.

HOMOSEXODUS!

Revealed: 'Gay' plans to target 2-year-olds
5th-grade students could be handed 'Coping With Sexual Orientation'

Children as young as two years of age are in the bull's-eye of coming changes in California's school curriculum, which "gay rights" advocates now admit will alter the very foundation of information presented to public school classrooms.

A list of school resources, sponsored by a homosexual-advocacy group called Safe Schools Coalition, suggests that for those who are only two years old, there's "Felicia's Favorite Story," which tells how she was "adopted by her two mothers."

The list also promotes a book called "Are You a Girl or a Boy?" by Karleen Jiminez, a resource for children ages 4-8 when advocating homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism and other alternative lifestyle choices.

sola scriptura; and for the kids a picture.


Job 26:10 (New American Standard Bible)

10"He has inscribed a circle on the surface of the waters
At the boundary of light and darkness.

Same sex relationships: new and pleasing in God's sight!

Pastor David has and an eight part commentary on homosexuality. His last concluding remarks of Homosexuality #8 is:

My personal position on this—which a critical and dispassionate assessment of scripture indicates—is that the issue is not of central importance. But weaseling out of expressing my opinion would be annoying, so I’ll spit it out. I’m convinced that those who want to set aside the historically dysfunctional and solipsistic homosexual lifestyle and live instead in partnered, covenanted same-sex relationships are doing something new, and that that new thing that is pleasing in God’s sight. That position is drawn from my own observations of partnered gays and lesbians working in ministry. It is reinforced by my wholistic approach to scripture, which places greater emphasis on the central principles it teaches and the Spirit that fills it. (Bold mine).

The Rev David Williams leads the Trinity Presbyterian Church of Bethesda, MD.
I do believe he is sincere in seeking God's truth, but I also know, not believe, he is in error. There is nothing 'pleasing' in God's sight about homosexual relationships. No translational or intellectual gymnastics will replace the clarity of scripture regarding God's design and God's commands regarding sexual purity.

Genesis 2:24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.


Just where is the translation confusion here: (btw, a little common sense goes a long way)

Leviticus 20:13 ' If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.'

Indeed, all have sinned and in need of repentance and a savior. Unfortunately Rev. Williams looks at the world, "gays and lesbians working in ministry" to draw his conclusions. That my friends is the last place one leading a church should seek God's truth. A more proper 'wholistic' approach as he puts it, would be God is King, God's is truth, God's word is the final authority. Lordship and obedience are not separate.

Judges Chapter 19:22
While they were celebrating, behold, the men of the city, certain worthless fellows, surrounded the house, pounding the door; and they spoke to the owner of the house, the old man, saying, "Bring out the man who came into your house that we may have relations with him." 23 Then the man, the owner of the house, went out to them and said to them, "No, my fellows, please do not act so wickedly; since this man has come into my house, do not commit this act of folly.24 "Here is my virgin daughter and his concubine. Please let me bring them out that you may ravish them and do to them whatever you wish. But do not commit such an act of folly against this man."25 But the men would not listen to him. So the man seized his concubine and brought her out to them; and they raped her and abused her all night until morning, then let her go at the approach of dawn.

She is brutally raped all night, and left for dead.

27 When her master arose in the morning and opened the doors of the house and went out to go on his way, then behold, his concubine was lying at the doorway of the house with her hands on the threshold.28 He said to her, "Get up and let us go,"but there was no answer. Then he placed her on the donkey; and the man arose and went to his home.29 When he entered his house, he took a knife and laid hold of his concubine and cut her in twelve pieces, limb by limb, and sent her throughout the territory of Israel.30 All who saw it said, "Nothing like this has ever happened or been seen from the day when the sons of Israel came up from the land of Egypt to this day. Consider it, take counsel and speak up!"

I would ask the same today. Consider the utter depravity, wickedness, and sexual unholiness we accept today in complete silence. In fact, many celebrate it, just as Rev Williams does. This is a clear Biblical warning of where we will find ourselves when we allow false teachers into our churches and live our lives like the final verse of this story:

Judges Chapter 21:
25 In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his
own eyes.

Perhaps Rev Williams should remember Jephthah's tragic vow

How often do we think we are doing right in the eyes of God, when in fact we are nothing but paganized Christians making a mockery of God's will? Making idols of the world's wisdom? Proclaiming Christ when it suits are needs, or denying and editing His word so that it fits our modern paganized worldviews?

DIAPRAX GOES TO SEMINARY

By Paul Proctor click name to read entire article.

'Interactive Team-Building Seminar' Called Cutting-Edge Way of Learning' http://www.baptistpress.com/bpnews.asp?ID=14603

For those unacquainted with the term 'Diaprax', it is simply another word for the Hegelian Dialectic or consensus process -- a deceitful procedure designed to bring about change through conflict and compromise that was conceived in the late 1700's by transformational Marxist, Georg Wilhelm Fredric Hegel who sought, as occult-led globalists do to this day, ‘unity in diversity' – a term many of us became familiar with under the Clinton Administration. Diaprax, a word coined by author and teacher Dean Gotcher, essentially brings together people of diverse and often opposing backgrounds, worldviews and belief systems in hopes they will forfeit their own values, traditions and absolutes for the emotional rewards of group acceptance.

The goal of Diaprax in the church is to rid the flock of its pesky and divisive hang-ups and habits that impede unity and change – personal convictions and restrained behaviors that are based on Biblical truth rather than political correctness, pragmatism and personal taste. Diaprax is a truth-silencing technique that covertly promotes humanist ideals and a reciprocating brotherly love known in the Greek as 'phileo' through imagery (arts/media) and conversation (opinion/dialog) at the expense of the more Godly, obedient, self-sacrificing, truthful and unworldly 'love-your-enemy' kind of love called 'agape' – the kind of love that drove the Apostle Paul to speak the bitter truth about sinful man from the chains of a dark and lonely prison; the kind of love that caused Stephen to cry out: "lay not this sin to their charge" as the angry crowd stoned him to death for his cutting words of conviction; and what moved the Lord Jesus Himself to say as He hung on a cross for the sins of the world: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."

Those who GO along to GET along, the cowardly essence of Diaprax, are rewarded with the 'phileo' love of tolerance and flattery. Those who courageously challenge the consensus are shamed, ridiculed or rejected for their 'hateful' attitude', 'mean-spiritedness' and 'ungodly' disruption of the group's 'purpose-driven' unity.

Words you WON’T see in the article are God, Jesus Christ, cross, sin, rebellion, repentance, confession, forgiveness, grace, mercy, wisdom, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, the Holy Spirit, edification, sanctification, glorification or even salvation. Why? -- Because this 'model of things to come for teaching in our churches' is not about the Gospel of Christ. It is about avoiding it at all costs.

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." – 2nd Timothy 4:3-4

The Human Right's Campaign's (HRC) dirty laundry


Well, well, well.
The U.S. Senate aide arrested for arranging a three-way with an undercover informant and who he thought was a 13-year-old male was previously an employee with the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest GLBT rights group. Mike McHaney, 28, was fired from his job as a scheduler for Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington state within hours his arrest for attempting to sexually exploit a minor.


McHaney, who remains in federal custody without bond at least until a hearing tomorrow, was arrested by FBI agents after showing up to meet a cooperating witness and the fictional teen. Before that, McHaney worked on the 2004 presidential campaigns of Democrats John Kerry and Richard Gephardt.


Brad Luna, an HRC spokesperson, confirmed that McHaney worked as an executive scheduler for the D.C.-based gay rights group from September 2005 to May 2006.


McHaney's arrest, first reported by TheSmokingGun.com, was the result of an FBI sting operation launched after a cooperating witness who claimed to have traded child pornography with McHaney approached police. The informant then asked McHaney during an online chat if he would be interested in anal sex with a 13-year-old male. "I'll be there," he allegedly replied.


Court documents filed by police also indicate McHaney asked the informant to send him photographs of the teen, and asked if he had "any pubes." When told he didn't, McHaney allegedly replied, "That's hot."


Interesting. This is reminiscent of another out and proud activist's interest in young boys Nelson Garica of NG blog. No, not all 'gays' are pedophiles, but Satan is certainly never satisfied with just one camp fire in ones mind.


There is the public face the HRC & the gay christian movement, and the there is the dark hidden side.


Side A is an intoxicating mix of feel good philosophy, promises of safety, well placed cultural platitudes, and a religious veneer bathed in the coating of false love. This is the gay christian movement’s public face. Side B, the one intentionally hidden from public view, is an agressive mix of pride, arrogance, vulgarity, vengeance, and lust. This is the gay christian movement’s private face.




The Gay Left cabal must be close to a complete meltdown. After all, for three years they have been criminalizing and personally punishing gay Americans for merely not towing the liberal political line on gay policy issues.


One has to ask the following question, since it was repeated ad nauseum during the Mark Foley affair: Who knew and/or enabled Mike McHaney’s alleged child sex predatory activities?


Mike Meehan, Sen. Cantwell’s chief of staff, worked with McHaney at Kerry 2004 HQ. Did Meehan bring McHaney along to Cantwell’s office? What does Meehan know about McHaney’s history and when did he know it?


And do McHaney and Lane Hudson — revealer of all things Mark Foley – know each other? After all, they both worked for the HRC, John Kerry for President and Rep. Rodney Alexander. It stretches the imagination to think Hudson and McHaney don’t know each other. If so, what does Hudson know about McHaney’s child sex predatory ways?


Why the silence and secrecy?


Jude 4: For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Continuing to Fight the War on Error


The following is adapted from John MacArthur's book, The Truth War (Spring, 2007).


What is truth? We began this book with that question, and my earnest hope is that the answer would be clear: Truth is not any individual's opinion or imagination. Truth is what God decrees. And He has given us an infallible source of saving truth in His revealed Word.


For the true Christian, this should not be a complex issue. God's Word is what all pastors and church leaders are commanded to proclaim, in season and out of season--when it is well received and even when it is not (2 Timothy 4:2). It is what every Christian is commanded to read, study, meditate on, and divide rightly. It is what we are called and commissioned by Christ to teach and proclaim to the uttermost parts of the earth.


Is there mystery even in the truth God has revealed? Of course. " 'For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,' says the LORD" (Isaiah 55:8). In 1 Corinthians 2:16, Paul paraphrased Isaiah 40:13-14: "Who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?"


But then Paul immediately added this: "We have the mind of Christ." Christ has graciously given us enough truth and enough understanding to equip us for every good deed--including the work of earnestly contending for the faith against deceivers who try to twist the truth of the gospel. Although we cannot know the mind of God exhaustively, we certainly can know it sufficiently to be warriors for the cause of truth against the lies of the kingdom of darkness.


And we are commanded to participate in that battle. God Himself sounded the call to battle when His Spirit moved Jude to write his short epistle and it permanently entered the canon of Scripture. This is not a duty any faithful Christian can shirk. Earthly life for the faithful Christian can never be a perpetual state of ease and peace. That's why the New Testament includes so many descriptions of the Christian life as nonstop warfare: Ephesians 6:11-18; 2 Timothy 2:1-4; 2 Timothy 4:7; 2 Corinthians 6:7; 10:3-5; 1 Thessalonians 5:8. Those unwilling to join the fight against untruth and false religion are no true friends of Christ.


The handful of vignettes from church history we have examined together in this book are only a brief introduction to how the Truth War has been fought over the past two millennia. Look at any period of church history and you will discover this significant fact: Whenever the people of God have sought peace with the world or made alliances with false religions, it has meant a period of serious spiritual decline, even to the point where at times the truth seemed almost to be in total eclipse. But whenever Christians have contended earnestly for the faith, the church has grown and the cause of truth has prospered. May it be so in our time.


In other words, the Truth War is a good fight (1 Timothy 6:12). So let's wage good warfare (1 Timothy 1:18)--for the honor of Christ and the glory of God.

Dumping Sola Scriptura

[The problem is] "the idea that the Bible is the sole source of knowledge of God, morality, and a host of related important items. Accordingly, the Bible is taken to be the sole authority for faith and practice.”

J.P.Moreland quoted in "Postcard from San Diego:Fighting 'Bibliolatry' at the Evangelical Theological Society,"
by Ted Olsen, Christianity Today, 11/14/07.
We don’t need less commitment to the Bible we need more – a lot more. We need a fresh reverence, love and respect for the Bible. It should not be the basis of speculation and debate but rather of obedience and practice. We need preachers who will unreservedly commit to the Bible, the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible. We need men who will “preach the word” (2Timothy 4:2) without fear or favor. We need Christians who are humble enough to believe God’s Word, no matter what others say or think. And we need churches that are committed to actually expect their members to live according to the Bible. In short – we need to get back to the Bible. Heretics like Moreland should be excommunicated publicly. Schools, and the products of the schools, that harbor such unbelievers should be shunned. Churches should not accept preachers that have studied under such men or in such seminaries. [bold mine.]

Will it preach?

A Photographic Art Exhibit on the Word Faith "Gospel"

So-called Christian preachers are living in extravagant wealth while preaching a self-centered ‘gospel’ of prosperity. Two of the most popular proponents of this false gospel of wealth and self-centeredness are Joel Osteen and Paula White. We’ve taken the artwork for their ‘messages’ and taken them out of their American context to see if they will “preach” in war torn Iraq, Darfur and Rwanda.

Paula White’s message is “Celebrate You”.
Joel Osteen’s message is “Your Best Life Now”


Compare this to the Message of Biblical Gospel

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus...” - Romans 3:23-24

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” - John 3:16 -17

Trinity defense

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

The prologue to John's gospel makes a precise identification of Christ with Wisdom, describing the Logos' Christological role (1:3), its role as the ground of human knowledge (1:9) and as the mediator of special revelation (1:14) -- the three roles of the pre-existent Logos/Wisdom. In calling Jesus God's Logos, John was affirming Jesus' eternality and ontological oneness with the Father by connecting him with the Wisdom tradition.


There are approximately 120 passages in the New Testament in which for no reason at all the Father, the Son, the Spirit are mentioned together. Consider Peter speaking in Acts 2:32-33.

32 "This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses.
33 "Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear.

How in the world did Peter, an heir of Jewish monotheism, ever come to the point of referring to God, Jesus, and the Spirit in such a casual manner without one iota of an explanation or even a defense?

Because it was very much a part of the early church language that the christian community shared. It would only be natural for Peter to speak as such. This is how the trinity was revealed to the world and this is how, Jew and Gentile have come to believe in the Father, the Son, and the Spirit.

The Old Testament prepared their minds to retain only one true and living God. It taught that God is constantly and most assuredly involved in history. Finally the Old Testament prepared their minds with the concept of a corporate personality (Israel was both individual and a nation).

The New testament writers do not record a trinity doctrine. It does however record a history, a faith, a common life, and 120 Trinitarian texts that collectively make the revelation of the Trinity. In that faith by the fourth century, the church had developed the doctrine.

The 120 passages:

Matt 1:18-23, 3:16-17, 4:1-3, 10:20, 12:18, 12:28,12:31-32, 22:43, 28:19 Mark

A reminder to my pal Justin who thinks God is the boss and seperate from Christ: Matt 28:18-20.


And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age"

The half truth of AIDS - anybody can get it

With the upcoming Rick Warren AIDS conference and the recent news that DC has 10 times the national average infection rate, it's time for a dose of reality.

Reality Risks:
1. Having intimate relations with someone infected.
2. Sharing needles.
3. Direct contact with infected body fluids.
footnote: just as it was over 30 years ago, anal sex among men is still the highest at risk group.

Perhaps at the Rick Warren AIDS conference there will be discussions on getting the medical community to report AIDS as they are required by law to report other communicable diseases like the measles, syphilis, meningitis etc.. If I am not mistaken, folks can go to jail who refuse treatment of these conditions. On the other hand, AIDS is secret, anonymous, and requires no partner notification type epidemic. It's cure apparently is more cultural sensitivity and less uncomfortable facts, lest we offend the out and proud activist.

When the CDC and other like minded blame homophobia on the spread of AIDS, I submit to you they have not a clue, nor do they really desire to address the real issues surrounding sexual immorality. Why? That would force them to recognize a source of morality and put them in the most uncomfortable position of being subject to judgement.

Sex outside of marriage is destructive.
Homosexuality is destructive.
Drug use is destructive.
Lieing is destructive.

God didn't give us His law to make us miserable, He gave it because He loves and cares about us.

Archbishop Tutu's biblically unfaithful apostasy

Tutu hits out at Church on attitude to gays

"If God, as they say, is homophobic, I wouldn't worship that God."

100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the strongest possible terms.

100% of the verses referencing God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.

100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).

0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.

Indeed, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu does not worship God, he worships an idol. I dare say Jesus Christ may not know him at all.

"Our world is facing problems - poverty, HIV and Aids - a devastating pandemic, and conflict,"

Our world will continue to face problems until Christ returns. Poverty is quite relative, nor is it a sin. If Tutu is truly interested in peace, he'll become a slave first. That will require living for a different purpose.

"In the face of all of that, our Church, especially the Anglican Church, at this time is almost obsessed with questions of human sexuality."

Actually, the church will and should be obsessed with the God's word, His authority, and His truth. The church should be a holy place where sin is despised. When did one's sexual desires become Lord? Like I said, he worships an idol, not God.

Rick Warren, AIDS, and a church

Source: Senator Hillary Clinton (D-New York) will join Rick Warren at his California church this month for an AIDS conference.

Warren says he has invited several other presidential candidates from both parties to attend his third annual Global Summit on AIDS, but Senator Clinton is the only one, so far, to confirm. According to a press release, others who have expressed interest and currently are dealing with scheduling issues include GOP presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and Rudy Giuliani, and Democrats John Edwards and Senator Barak Obama (D-Illinois).

According to Warren, "Inviting politicians from different perspectives to the Summit is not a political decision -- it is a humanitarian and Christian action."

"Christian action"? Who is he kidding?

Attention Rick Warren:
We already know lots of people know who Jesus Christ is. The question you should be asking yourself and others; does Jesus Christ know you?

Rick Warren does not have the intestinal fortitude to break fellowship with those who corrupt, distort, and deny the authority of scripture. In fact, giving them a global platform under the flag of 'Christianity' is nothing short of a bold act of defiance towards God and his word.

Gay theology & Cults

Source: GCMW

Gay church theology ranks among the most egregious forms of biblical errancy confronting the Christian church today. Its two-sided operationality encompasses all aspects of its evil desires. Side A is an intoxicating mix of feel good philosophy, promises of safety, well placed cultural platitudes, and a religious veneer bathed in the coating of false love. This is the gay christian movement’s public face. Side B, the one intentionally hidden from public view, is an agressive mix of pride, arrogance, vulgarity, vengeance, and lust. This is the gay christian movement’s private face.

Many Christians coming in contact with gay theology are unsuspecting of its deceitful web because personal biblical study isn’t being stressed in Christian churches. Gay theology, with its broad declarations of “radical inclusion” and “loving acceptance” of all people is seductive to the many hurt and wounded walking in the religious realm. It sounds good to the ear and appeals to the carnal man. Its the same tactic used against Eve in the garden.

Satan’s intent is not to frighten man, but rather seduce him with things and words and which appear on the surface beautiful, welcoming and harmless. This is why the gay christian movement hates the tough language the bible uses to battle sin. They avoid it at all costs, while instead focusing on broad issues of love minus moral restrictions.

Jihad news ignored

AP Source: Dozens of schoolchildren and five teachers were among those killed in a suicide attack in northern Afghanistan earlier this week — the country’s deadliest since the fall of the Taliban — the government said Friday.

The 59 schoolchildren had lined up to greet a group of lawmakers visiting a sugar factory in the northern province of Baghlan on Tuesday when a suicide bomber detonated explosives.
“The education minister has ordered that no children should be ever again be used in these sort of events,” said Zahoor Afghan, an Education Ministry spokesman. He said the children ranged in age from 8 to 18.


In all, the explosion claimed the lives at least 75 people, including several parliamentarians, and wounded 96. It was the deadliest attack in the country since the toppling of Taliban regime from power in the 2001 U.S.-led invasion.

Global Warming - man made myth

“It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the ‘research’ to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus... I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party. However, Global Warming, ie Climate Change, is not about environmentalism or politics. It is not a religion. It is not something you ‘believe in.’ It is science; the science of meteorology. This is my field of life-long expertise. And I am telling you Global Warming is a non-event, a manufactured crisis and a total scam. I say this knowing you probably won’t believe a me, a mere TV weatherman, challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States. So be it... There is no run away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril... In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious. As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling.”

Warning signs of rejecting Christ

Too many Christians fail to understand God is about "love and truth", not "wrath and punishment," says homosexual Rev Jeffery John.

This anti-Christ Reverend also believes that Christ's blood shed on the cross for the sins of the world is "insane".

If those in the liberal gay affirming church believe God is void of wrath and punishment, they must trash the Scriptures completely. Salvation history has become a fairy tale to them no matter how much secular evidence there is to the contrary. The Bible has become nothing more than a book to them. A book they may change, corrupt, and deny when it meets their earthly purpose. This is not about theological interpretation disagreements among believers, it is apostasy!

"Some people come into this world with affections ordered toward other people of the same gender, and some people come into this world with affections directed at people of the other gender." says the Episcopal Church's Presiding homosexual Bishop Katherine Schori

I wonder when sadomasochists (those folks who have affections towards pain is pleasure) will get invited to play "scourge the jesus" in the Episcopal church?

The anti-Christ bishop goes on to say in a sermon "That sweaty, bloody, tear-stained cross bears life. Our Mother Jesus gives birth to a new creation, and we are his children."

How long can she act and speak in rebellion to God's word before her followers will wake up and see the utter wickedness she embraces and teaches. Her speech should be recognized as clearly contradictory even to the most undiscerning ear. These folks are nothing more than paganized christians in an orgy of corrupting scripture. It is no surprise to me at all that they adhere to a god that has no judgement.

Jude 4 For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

5 Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, subsequently destroyed those who did not believe.

If you are being tempted to reject the authority of scripture, you are being tempted to reject Christ.

"Gays" imposing their false religion on all

Source; Bold mine.

[My] understanding is that the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment was intended to prevent the establishment of a state religion, not to prevent religious values from informing political decisions. Since people from many religious faiths and no religious faith have long agreed upon the essential place of sexual complementarity in the nurturance of the next generation, laws that reflect those convictions hardly seem a violation of the Establishment Clause. One could argue that those who attend houses of worship that support legalized same-sex unions are similarly attempting to enshrine in law their religious beliefs.

The idea of a separation of church and state no longer points to the importance of protecting religious freedom from the intrusive power of the state but instead refers to coercively eradicating religious expression from the public square. Only secularism, a worldview as shaped by myopic, dogmatic, unproved assumptions (as some argue religious views are), will be tolerated.

Illegitimate discrimination refers to unfavorable treatment of others based on ignorance. Discrimination, however, can also refer to discriminating between right and wrong, in which case it is an essential personal and civic activity. Conflating the two meanings of discrimination, or asserting that all negative judgments reflect prejudice, represents demagoguery. Principled opposition to homosexuality no more embodies illegitimate discrimination than does principled opposition to polyamory or adult consensual incest.

...If I love and am attracted to my brother or five people of assorted genders, why should an intolerant, prejudiced society be permitted to impose those moral views on me?


Ms. Higgins has clearly offended those in rebellion to God. I pray others will take notice, speak, and seek God's truth in His holy word. God's judgement has always come to men and women that do what is right in their own eye, and not God's.

Thankfully God is faithful even when we are not. Change your flag, your heart, and your allegiance. Pride will have no place in God's kingdom. It will never be about you, it will always be about God and His Kingship. Jesus on the cross tore down the curtain that separates us from Him. Repent, submit, and rejoice.

ATTENTION: Pastors and Elders!

A must read letter addressed to Pastors and Elders! Thanks to Gay Christian Movement Watch!

Dear Pastors and Elders,

Many Christians are confused, discouraged, and even more troubling, seduced by the relentless assaults on biblical truth waged by the culture of homosexuality that tirelessly pursues its goal of total cultural acceptance by infiltrating our churches, schools, families, and the media. This confusion, discouragement, and seduction are exacerbated by the relative silence of the church. The church must end its silence, and begin the difficult work of helping adults and children understand both the scriptural and secular arguments used to normalize homosexuality. The stubborn rebellious assaults on Scripture include the “homosexualized” revision of the stories of David and Jonathan, Ruth and Naomi, and Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as the wholesale dismissal of St. Paul’s indictment of homosexuality.

Christianity is corrupted by the pursuit of personal fulfillment, radical autonomy, and the realization of earthly ambitions. The flock no longer sees itself as fundamentally distinct from the surrounding culture. Some erroneously assume that the presence and potential discomfort of unbelievers in the Church should circumscribe or determine what is taught. They erroneously believe that hard truths serve as an obstacle to salvation. But retreat from expositions of sin does not make conversion more likely. Quite the contrary, many of us come to the cross via a painful recognition of our own dark sin.

Too many believers, spiritual leaders, and teachers are unprepared to fight the type of spiritual, intellectual, and socio-political battles that two thousand years of our predecessors in the Church accepted as their inescapable duty. Only a relatively small army of dedicated believers have been holding the fort while the rest of us decide whether or not to fight. We are on the sidelines, imprisoned, first, by our own material and social preoccupations, and second, by the daily and weekly maintenance of the house of God itself. But neither of these is our highest calling in a desperately confused and dying world. As satanic ideas about sexuality perpetuate, we must arm ourselves for battle where the Enemy is attacking.

On the subject of homosexuality, our young people face diabolical attempts at indoctrination in high school, in college, and in the mass media. Adults and children encounter a daily barrage of images and messages that promote the idea that homosexuality is good, right, and “cool,” and that opposition to that view constitutes cruelty and injustice. They see and hear those messages in television shows, films, plays, books, magazines, advertisements, the news, music, and from their friends and teachers. Tragically the response from their churches is largely a deafening silence. The Church cannot continue to treat this danger as a minor issue. We must do some serious thinking and study in order to address competently the specious and malignant arguments permeating society.

Believers, including pastors and elders, ignore at great peril the command: “Be not conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Acceptance and practice of homosexual and bisexual behavior, and support for civil unions and same-sex “marriage” are growing rapidly among young people, even Christians. If young Christians come to view Scripture as untrustworthy on sexual matters, they will find it untrustworthy on other matters as well. The Barna Research group has published a study indicating that young Christians are falling away from Christ in huge numbers at college. The dangers are real, imminent, and closer to home than many older Christians realize.

We must be willing and determined to address these grave moral and spiritual deceptions without hint of concession to the world. The temptation to soften biblical truth on culturally controversial matters is powerful even within “Bible-believing” churches today. But as God’s messengers, yielding to this temptation is not our right. Can censoring of God’s Word or even soft-pedaling to accommodate anyone be seen at any point in the recorded words of Christ? In the words of Moses or Jeremiah? Isaiah? Hosea? Habakkuk? John the Baptist? Any of the Reformers? In the revival evangelists whose warnings set free a spiritual fire in this country? If anyone comes to Christ on their own terms, they have not come to Christ, but to an idol made in their own image.

Christ saw into the soul and identified exactly which obstacle prevented a person from finding salvation. Think of his words to the rich young ruler, and to the Pharisees, scribes and lawyers. The hard truths were the ones He placed as the obstacle between them and the Kingdom of Heaven. Many went away or hated Him. If pastors have lost sight of this, they have lost sight of Christ.

In the face of this sweeping spiritual and cultural assault, where, if not the church, do our pastors think their followers will be taught truth? And who, if not the church, will equip them with an understanding of the revisionist “pro-gay” scriptural arguments as well as the substance of and flaws in the secular arguments? Who, if not the church, will provide both teens and adults with answers so that they will be able to engage intelligently and compassionately with the culture, and so that they themselves are not deceived by seductive lies?

Hear the prescient words of Martin Luther:If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battlefield besides is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.

We must stand tall in the face of the enemies of the Eternal Living God. We must seek the approval of a just and holy God, not the approval of a fallen and rebellious world at war with God. The powers of darkness lose something that matters when we obey Christ and renounce the spirits of fear, apathy, and conformity. To retreat from speaking the truth about homosexuality boldly and to fail to prepare Christians for cultural engagement while the pernicious lie that God loves homosexuality consumes the minds and hearts of our youth is a grievous, unconscionable abdication of responsibility.

It is God’s will that His shepherds disciple and train ordinary members of His body to be mighty warriors, bringing truth to the world outside the church. There is no greater honor than to be used as little David was, to stand before the giant and proclaim the incorruptible holiness and omnipotence of God, to defend His little ones, and let fly the stones He has commanded us to pick up from the stream and place in our bag for the moment of battle.

Listed below are some of the secular arguments used to normalize homosexuality which pastoral staff and elders should understand and for which they need to provide answers to the body of Christ. Teaching could be provided through sermons, Sunday school classes, evening or weekend seminars, or small groups. Certainly, a pastor or youth group leader ought not to preach or teach on homosexuality continually, but to do virtually nothing in the face of such persistent and persuasive attacks on the biblical understanding of homosexuality portends tragedy in all its forms: psychological, emotional, physical, relational, and most important, spiritual. Timidity on the part of leadership weakens the church and renders it complicit, albeit unintentionally, with our cultural degradation.

At different times in history, the enemy chooses different scriptural truths to attack with ferocity, and the church must respond accordingly. During the middle part of the 20th Century, Martin Luther King Jr., following in the footsteps of his namesake, confessed Christ boldly as the church faced, not an assault on sexuality, but an assault on the inherent dignity and equality of all men. But the truths he spoke in “Letter From Birmingham Jail” resonate today as we face yet another assault on truth:

I have been so greatly disappointed with the white church and its leadership. . . . too many . . . have been more cautious than courageous and have remained silent behind the anesthetizing security of stained-glass windows. . . . I have looked at the South’s beautiful churches with their lofty spires pointing heavenward. I have beheld the impressive outlines of her massive religious-education buildings. Over and over I have found myself asking: “What kind of people worship here? Who is their God? . . .

I have heard many ministers say: “Those are social issues, with which the gospel has no real concern.” And I have watched many churches commit themselves to a completely other worldly religion which makes a strange, non-biblical distinction between body and soul, between the sacred and the secular.

In deep disappointment, I have wept over the laxity of the church. . . . I see the church as the body of Christ. But, oh! How we have blemished and scarred that body through social neglect and through fear of being nonconformists.

There was a time when the church was very powerful in the time when the early Christians rejoiced at being deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Whenever the early Christians entered a town, the people in power became disturbed and immediately sought to convict the Christians for being “disturbers of the peace” and “outside agitators”‘ But the Christians pressed on, in the conviction that they were “a colony of heaven,” called to obey God rather than man. Small in number, they were big in commitment. They were too God intoxicated to be “astronomically intimidated.” By their effort and example they brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide, and gladiatorial contests.

Things are different now. So often the contemporary church is a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. So often it is an archdefender of the status quo. Par from being disturbed by the presence of the church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the church’s silent and often even vocal sanction of things as they are.

But the judgment of God is upon the church as never before. If today’s church does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authenticity, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the twentieth century.


I have no illusions; this work is difficult. But God is on His throne and calls us to carry His Cross: “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor. 12:10).

In Christ alone,

Jephthah's tragic vow

Judges 11:29-40 - Jephthah's tragic vow. Sacrifices his only daughter.

Moral of the story - It is best to keep your word to God? Jephthah did right in the Lord's eye by keeping his promise to God even if under such difficult circumstances?

No! Jephthah was a paganized Israelite, plain and simple. He had bought into the worldview that surrounded the Israelites. They were worshipping other gods for so long, he was ingrained with the multiple gods and recognized them all. This is made clear in Judges 11:23-24. In fact the narrator of Judges purposely puts on display how screwed up Jephthah was theologically. He gets the gods mixed up. (Chemosh was not the god of the Amorites, it was the god of the Moabites).

If good ole Jephthah was so concerned with doing right in the eyes of our Lord, he had multiple places to turn. Remember, his only daughter's life was at stake! Why not turn to Leviticus 27:1-8. He could have redeemed her life by a payment devoted to God. Why did Jephthah not remember Deuteronomy 12:31, where child sacrifice was an abomination before God? Answer, he was a Paganized Israelite! Saving his own skin and leadership position by appeasing false gods.

How often do we think we are doing right in the eyes of God, when in fact we are nothing but paganized christians making a mockery of God's will? Making idols of the world's wisdom? Proclaiming Christ when it suits are needs, or denying and editing His word so that it fits our modern paganized worldviews?

Just as Jephthah negotiated his way into the position of a Judge (11:9), he thought he could negotiate with the god's, whether it be the one true God, or the pagan's gods. Obedience to God is not negotiable. Denying the authority of scripture will bring judgement. We are not to do what is right in our own eye. We are to immerse ourselves in the holy and perfect word of God. We are to be holy because God is holy. Obedience - Blessing, Disobedience - Judgement, anything else is a false god and an abomination before the Lord.

How blessed we are that God is faithful even when we are not.

A parallel biblical message of Sodom, and consequences

Judges Chapter 19:
22 While they were celebrating, behold, the men of the city, certain worthless fellows, surrounded the house, pounding the door; and they spoke to the owner of the house, the old man, saying, "Bring out the man who came into your house that we may have relations with him."
23 Then the man, the owner of the house, went out to them and said to them, "No, my fellows, please do not act so wickedly; since this man has come into my house, do not commit this act of folly.
24 "Here is my virgin daughter and his concubine. Please let me bring them out that you may ravish them and do to them whatever you wish. But do not commit such an act of folly against this man."
25 But the men would not listen to him. So the man seized his concubine and brought her out to them; and they raped her and abused her all night until morning, then let her go at the approach of dawn.


She is brutally raped all night, and left for dead.

27 When her master arose in the morning and opened the doors of the house and went out to go on his way, then behold, his concubine was lying at the doorway of the house with her hands on the threshold.
28 He said to her, "Get up and let us go,"but there was no answer. Then he placed her on the donkey; and the man arose and went to his home.
29 When he entered his house, he took a knife and laid hold of his concubine and cut her in twelve pieces, limb by limb, and sent her throughout the territory of Israel.
30 All who saw it said, "Nothing like this has ever happened or been seen from the day when the sons of Israel came up from the land of Egypt to this day. Consider it, take counsel and speak up!"


I would ask the same today. Consider the utter depravity, wickedness, and sexual unholiness we accept today in complete silence. In fact, many celebrate it! This is a clear Biblical warning of where we will find ourselves when we live our lives like the final verse of this story:

Judges Chapter 21:
25 In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his
own eyes.

President George Bush's moronic statement


For the first time ever the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring the Islamic holy period of Ramadan and commending Muslims for their faith. The President went even further, hosting his 7th "iftar" at the White House inviting Muslim officials and clerics to join him for prayer and dinner in observance of Ramadan. In an interview with Al Arabiya, the President stated that all religions "whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, pray to the same God."


No Mr. President, slaves of Christ do NOT worship the same God as Muslims. You certainly are entitled to your own weak useless relative faith sir, but in the words of Cal Thomas..
"If we all worship the same God, the president should answer the call of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Osama bin Laden, convert to Islam and no longer be a target of their wrath. What difference would it make if we all worship the same God?"


What's next Mr. President, all religions are the same, there is no right and wrong, there are no absolute truths? Your comment Sir has revealed to the world you have no Knowledge of Christ, you simply have a belief, and even morons have a set those. I suggest you leave the Methodist church and head straight over to a Universalism type church. I hear they are quite popular these days.

Gay couple left free to abuse boys - because social workers feared being branded homophobic




A homosexual foster couple were left free to sexually abuse vulnerable boys in their care because social workers feared being accused of discrimination if they investigated complaints, an inquiry concluded yesterday.

Craig Faunch and Ian Wathey were one of the first homosexual couples in the country to be officially approved as foster parents. They looked after 18 children in only 15 months. With no previous convictions, they came across as respectable men who simply wanted to help boys with a variety of problems. In reality, they were paedophiles, who repeatedly abused the children in their care.
Can it get worse?
Wathey, 42, was jailed for five years in June last year after being convicted of four counts of sexual activity with a child and one offence of causing a child to watch sexual activity.

Faunch, 33, received a six-year jail sentence after he was found guilty of five charges of engaging in sexual activity with a child and two of taking indecent photographs of a child.
And they were still approved as foster parents!
Imagine that!
The report, following an independent review of the case, said:
“One manager described the couple as ‘trophy carers’ which led to ’slack arrangements’ over placement.

“Another said that by virtue of their sexuality they had a ‘badge’ which made things less questionable.

“The sexual orientation of the men was a significant cause of people not ‘thinking the unthinkable’.

“It was clear that a number of staff were afraid of being thought homophobic.

“The fear of being discriminatory led them to fail to discriminate between the appropriate and the abusive.”

When a 5 year old is the hostage of the 'homosexual rights' crowd

Source: 8-15-2007, CWFA update on the Lisa Miller case:

Virginia resident Lisa Miller, mother of five-year-old Isabella Miller, was involved in the homosexual lifestyle for a short time. She is now a born-again Christian. Lisa has provided a stirring update about the August 3, 2007, Vermont court hearing to determine whether she should lose custody of her daughter to Janet Jenkins, Lisa’s former lesbian partner. Jenkins, a woman entirely unrelated to Isabella, has argued that Lisa is an unfit parent due to her Christian faith. The court has ordered that Jenkins have visitation with Isabella. The last visitation session was for an entire week.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) has also learned that Lisa’s attorneys, with Virginia-based Liberty Counsel, will have 10 minutes before the Virginia Supreme Court on August 29 at 3:00 p.m. to try to convince the court to intervene on behalf of Lisa and Isabella. Please pray that the court will enforce both Virginia’s marriage protection laws and the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and put a stop to this madness once and for all.


In Lisa Miller's own words she asks for prayer!

Please also pray for the Virginia courts to rule in our favor. As I write to you the Virginia Supreme Court has my case on their desk along with a plea to expedite hearing my case. Virginia needs to rule in favor of her laws which are for marriage between one man and one woman including not recognizing any civil unions or any contractual agreements arising out of a civil union. Virginia has ignored her laws and has allowed the importation of Vermont’s civil union law into her state. Consequently, a five year old is being held hostage.

I know God is in control. I know there is a plan and purpose for this week. I do ask that you keep Isabella in your prayers and that God's will be done in this situation. Please also keep Janet in your prayers for her salvation. Thank you for your prayers.

Joyfully Serving Christ,

Lisa

When the bishops mock Christ

Source: Virginia Episcopalian, July 2007, Volume 116, Number 4, page 6.

Asked to explain her belief about the “uniqueness of Jesus” for salvation, Bishop Jefferts Schori said that Jesus died both for the salvation of individuals and “for the salvation of the world.” The difficulty, she said, is that she does not know the “mechanism” by which God saves the whole world. Given that lack of knowledge, it would be “idolatry” for her to say how God deals with those “who don’t profess to be Christians.” For the Presiding Bishop, it is more important to begin with the mystery of God, and what we admit we cannot say for certain about that mystery, than what we think we can affirm about God. After two hours, and no more questions, a conversation notable for its honesty and graciousness was finished.


Well isn't this special, there is no Hell. Christ's work on the cross saves all people, including those "who don't profess to be Christians". To suggest otherwise would be "idolatry" according to the Bishop. Instead of beginning with what she calls the 'mystery' of God and starting there, she should start with the word of God and what He does teach us. That way she would not have to make stuff up as she goes along. She desires all people to go to heaven, so it must be true. She just dosen't know how or what 'mechanism' is used in this fairy tale of her own making. Perhaps starting with the real truth in God's holy word would be too uncomfortable for someone more interested in bringing glory to the flesh and not God.



Jefferts-Schori says she views salvation as the healing of all Creation through holy living. "I understand salvation as being about the healing of the whole creation. Your part and my part in that is about holy living," she offered. "As Christians we understand [salvation] as relationship with God in Jesus, but that does not mean that we're expected to judge other people's own commitments."


Salvation is ..."the healing of all creation through holy living"?

Ephesians 2: 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.


Romans 4: 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God.


Is there any among us who live holy and righteous before our most Holy God? The answer is no, not one. Without Christ you are dead. Secondly if her absurd premise is true, (healing all of creation) why did God require animal sacrifices? and our Lord Jesus Christ being the Final sacrifice for sin?


In John 14:6, Jesus -- in responding to a question posed by the disciple Thomas -- said: "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me." But Jefferts-Schori says she disagrees with the idea that salvation comes only through trusting in Jesus Christ. "It's this sense that one person can have the fullness of truth in him or herself, rather than understanding that truth is -- like God -- more than any one person can encompass," stated the soon-to-be ECUSA leader.


She disagrees with the word of God and says our truths come from within. Sounds like an immature teenager to me, not a mature follower of Christ. Unfortunately she has made herself the image of God and remains anti-Christ, no matter how much authority men have given her.

When the Seminaries have no interest in scriptural truth

"[N]o matter how good [theologian Dr. Robert Gagnon's] arguments are, the conclusions he comes to are patently bigoted, so I reject them regardless of what apparent veracity they may have. Frankly, if Jesus Christ pried open the skies and leaned down into my living room right now and said 'Doug, it is a sin to be homosexual,' I'd say 'Okay Jesus, that makes things simple—I'm not Christian anymore. Now go away.'"

- San Francisco Theological Seminary (PCUSA) student Doug Hagler, objecting to Pittsburgh Theological Seminary professor Robert Gagnon's arguments against the compatibility of homosexual behavior with Christian practice.

The apostate and false teachers


What is a fasle teacher and how do you spot them? Here is one among many.


They are false teachers among us. They have no actual reverence for God. They turn the grace of God into 'lewdness' (Jude v. 4) They teach Christ on the Cross is a license for immoral conduct. They talk a great deal about grace and liberty, but they themselves a remain slaves of corruption. They are more interested in how they feel and what works, rather than what is true and what is right. Which is a common theme in many evangelical churches today. The false teachers are indeed among us and drawing many away from salvation. The grace of Christ becomes nothing more than a smoke screen and a way for them to justify their own lust driven conduct. They wilfully and knowingly use christian liberty to continue in lawlessness and entertain the opportunities for their flesh. See (Galatians 5:13 and 1 peter 2:16)


I am not talking about little theological differences either, although they may want to claim such. These men and women are in fact ungodly, seriously ungodly and they have always been in the church, the body of Christ.


Their first goal: Undermined God's Sovereignty. Take the word of God and tweak it to fit their worldly lusts. This tweaking is not differences between believers over small matters! We must remember that no one invented or even discovered the Christan faith. In fact it was delivered to us, the holy, complete, and final word of God found in scripture. Our duty is to defend that truth, just as the prophets and apostles did, even if it cost us our lives. That battle is in the mind. It is a very serious war people. The struggle will determine your eternal fate, heaven or hell. This is no time for docile happy go lucky 'can't we set aside our differences and just love one another' compromises. This is the time to proclaim the word of God with complete clarity and authority.


The very essence of all apostasy "The fear of Me is not in you" (Jeremiah 2:19). Many will know the truth and reject it. Jesus was surrounded by many that saw His miracles and teachings of truth, and walked away from Him. The utter clarity of Christ's teachings pierced them like a sword because they loved the flesh and the darkness, and walked away.


Our only worthy weapon is the word of God. It is the absolute authority and holds perfect sufficiency in making mature discerning decisions on what is true and what is false, what is good and what is evil. Anyone who hears and then denies the truth is an apostate. No genuine believer can ever fall away (1 John 2:19 and John 10:28-29)!


These people are not true believers. Obedience and submission to Christ is not evident in their word or deed. They remain lost and lovers of darkness and only the truth can liberate them. The truth of scripture, the absolute clarity of God's revealed word. Resist that, and you will remain ungodly and unsaved by Christ. Compromising God's word and false teachings are nothing new. Christ warned us before hand in Mark 13:23. We must rise up and defend God's word. We must restore order in the church and have zero tolerance for Apostates and those who corrupt scripture .


Highly Recommend John MacArthur's The Truth War!

Why the biblical truth of God matters

Source: Why Al Qaeda Supports the Emergent Church

The emergent church and its allies on the religious left are to Christianity what termites are to wood. They devour it from the inside out, little bit by little bit, and you don’t notice it until it’s too late–unless you look for the droppings.

They’re leaving lots of droppings if you only have eyes to see.

The emergent church has rejected the “linear” and “modern” categories of true/false, good/evil, and right/wrong, and they recoil at the notion of applying these terms to Christianity or any other faith tradition–even radical Islam. To believe Christianity is true, good, and right is divisive, offensive, and well, rude and anti-conversational.

It’s time to call these people out from the shadows and expose them to the light of public scrutiny.

Their unwillingness to distinguish truth from error, right from wrong, and good from evil leave them intellectually immobilized to resist the encroachment of false teaching and heresy, and even incapable of knowing the good guys from the bad guys in the war for the free world.

The whole point of terrorism is to destroy the will of the enemy to fight.

I know of not one Godless liberal willing to fight nor die for anything, much less the truth since they deny it exist in any absolute terms. When the truth becomes personal and relative, this nation will be destroyed from the inside out.

Holsinger's cowardly stance before the Senate

After a recent comment made by Kevin, I have learned Dr. Holsinger has now put his head up his butt in fear. In other words, another man has compromised the truth because the truth offends too many people. Especially the Godless men and women that walk the halls of our Congress.

Tony Perkins says it better than I:

When Dr. James Holsinger's name first appeared as a nominee for the mostly ceremonial position of Surgeon General alarm bells immediately went off. I was reminded he once testified in favor of cloning and human embryonic stem cell experimentation when he was the chancellor of the University of Kentucky's Medical Center. When we asked about his previous testimony we were told he has since changed his mind on the stem cell issue - yet we were offered no confirmation of this evolution. This lack of conviction either way had me worried how he would handle Congressional questioning of a paper he had written over a decade ago on the very real health dangers of a homosexual lifestyle. In 1990 Dr. Holsinger argued that the sexes are anatomically complementary and that "when the complementarity of the sexes is breached, injuries and diseases may occur." At his confirmation hearing yesterday Dr. Holsinger recanted his earlier statement, saying his views had "evolved" and that the issues he raised are not relevant in public health discussions today. While not an expert in human anatomy, I am 100% sure that human beings have not "evolved" into asexual beings, as Dr. Holsinger's new comments would suggest. Dr. Holsinger's confirmation should not fail because of his views, but because of his seeming lack of conviction on any of them.

Bold mine.

The seeds of evil


Warning! This is very Graphic and offensive!




It was an horrific assault on my prepubescent body, but I had to bear it; I was powerless to stop it. Now, when I look back at the terrible things that were done to me, I see that my father should have done something to stop it, but he didn't.


How could a man stand by while his 11-year-old daughter was effectively raped by another man?


The former Fleetwood Mac band member Jeremy Spencer was a member of the cult. On the regular dates we had, he would play a tape of saxophone music. The routine was, by now, familiar - undress, pray, kiss and then perform lewd acts for him.

"Childhood Sex: I like it! It reminded me of how you used to put me to sleep when I was a little girl, 3 or 4. Wow! Daddy did it best! Back rubbin' that is, and front rubbin' too!...Daddy just made me feel good all over and I didn't know why, but it would really put me to sleep with a sigh! Praise the Lord! I don't think it perverted me, none at all, but it sure converted me to his call! So I believe our parents should try it and help our kids to get the natural habit! We pray it'll work, then junior won't be a sexual jerk! It worked for me as you can see, I just do what comes naturally! Oh I could write a book, but this is just a look into my childhood sex!"

-From Faithy's reaction to "My Childhood Sex!" (ML 779), as quoted in the Judgment of Lord Justice Ward.


Wow! Faith is ok with it, I guess we should be too. Right?



Now let's see just how close Mr. David Berg's world view is to some views today.


AND PERHAPS IF I HAD NOT BEEN SO CONSERVATIVE & EXTREMELY NARROW-MINDED IN MY THEOLOGY & RELIGION AT THAT TIME & so absolutely frightened by my Mother’s seeming abandon at the moment, I might have reacted a little more responsively & perhaps have satisfied both of us & our tremendous sexual needs, & it could have developed into a beautiful sexual relationship!


QUESTION: ( Maria ask Is there anything against incest in the Bible?)


ANSWER: Sure, the old Mosaic Law, which is no longer in effect! (Maria: I thought there wasn't anything in the Bible against it?) It's not really clear in the Bible, but there are plenty of man’s laws against it, even the marriage of first cousins! Incest has been known to bring out either the strengths or weaknesses of a family, & it often produces either geniuses or idiots, just like any other inbreeding. With farm animals, for example, you can inbreed in such a way as to improve the line or the strain, or you can do it in the wrong way & make it worse. But with God in control, there's no problem but man's anti-God laws! Cain & Seth obviously married their sisters, & Lot married his own two daughters without any problems!—But watch out for man!


QUESTION: MY LITTLE BOY (5 YEARS OLD) IS VERY SEXY! He cannot even hug his mother without getting a hard on. So I thought it was bad because it makes him too familiar with his mother if she takes care of him. I believe somebody else would take care of him, but until now, no one in the Home has the burden to do this. What do you, Dad, think of this kind of mother & child relationship? —Sammy, Europe


ANSWER: What’s wrong with it? It’s perfectly natural!—What better person to learn about sex from than his own dear mother?—God’s only Law is Love!


last but not lest...I'M TALKING ABOUT NATURAL NORMAL GODLY LOVE AS MANIFESTED IN SEX, as far as I'm concerned for whomever! There are no relationship restrictions or age limitations in His law of love. But system laws make it all against the law, and if I'd tell you what I think, I'd probably break the law publishing it! Whew! Wow! The system really stinks! It is a pit of lies and deceit and fiendish propaganda against the laws of God and the love of God and the sex of God! It's almost totally against nature!


Sounds familiar eh?


  • "The old law is no longer applicable!"

  • "God's only law is love!"

  • "If you were not so narrow minded and conservative in your theology you would understand!"

You might think that's straight out of the Gay Christian Movement's playbook. The exact same world view Berg uses to justify incest, rape, pedophilia, and all other 'godly' things. That can't be good, can it?

Poisoning the Surgeon General Nominee

Press Release:

Washington, D.C. – This morning Senate hearings will begin for Dr. James Holsinger, President Bush’s nominee for Surgeon General. Holsinger’s nomination has become unfairly politicized due to both his medical findings on homosexual behavior and his religious beliefs. While Concerned Women for America (CWA) takes no position on his nomination, we do believe that it is inappropriate and unconstitutional to subject Dr. Holsinger to a religious litmus test.

Holsinger’s findings on male homosexual behaviors are medically sound and are supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). He has unapologetically stated that homosexual behavior is “unnatural” and “unhealthy” and runs counter to natural human biological design.

Matt Barber, CWA’s Policy Director for Cultural Issues, said, "It is both inappropriate and unconstitutional for the Senate to require that any nominee pass an anti-Christian religious litmus test based upon the demands of extremist left-wing special interest groups. In the past, Dr. Holsinger has objectively placed scientific substance over political correctness relative to the high-risk nature of homosexual behaviors. The determinations he and numerous other medical experts have reached are completely in line with the findings of the CDC. The CDC has documented that people who engage in homosexual behavior - by far - are at highest risk for devastating and often deadly sexually transmitted diseases. Will liberals now call for the CDC to be shut-down because the medical facts undermine their political agenda? Essentially what these radical special interest groups and like-minded senators are saying is that Christians need not apply for public service. This is both hateful and discriminatory."

Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization.

One 'community' gone wrong

What is meant by a homosexual community?

I look at it as those who embrace, celebrate, and desire acceptance of a sexual behavior that is against God's word (eternal truths) and is physically and spiritually destructive.

It is a 'community' that wants the foundation of the traditional family completely destroyed. The very foundation that is the cornerstone for any society.

It is the same 'community' that will make right and wrong obsolete and nothing more than a matter of opinion. Are all opinions of equal value?

The same 'community' that believes two dads is as good as a Mother and Father.

A 'community' that wants a relative understanding of sexuality to replace any absolute or Godly understanding. If it feels good, it is good.

A 'community' that believes the acts of any consenting adults have no consequences on society.

A 'community' that reaches far beyond any freedom to work, live, and privacy. In fact, one need not have same sex attractions to even be apart of this 'community'.

A 'community' where morality is an opinion, not a truth based in reality.

A 'community' that desires to re-define the meaning of simple words like gay, marriage, hate and crime. I pull your hair and call you a fag = Crime. I read from the Bible and call it truth = Hate. Bob and Steve speak words of commitment in a man made chapel = Marriage. I celebrate that unhappiness which destroys the body and soul = gay.

A 'community' that speaks about love and tolerance while hating and gagging those those who hold a different world view, especially a world view that has the audacity to claim right from wrong.

Two roads folks: God's road or Your road. Yes, it is that simple.

No one is exempt. Life itself has always had God's blessings and consequences built into all of it. For every act there is a consequence. That is life. That is God's promise.

Thank you Lord Jesus for providing the way, the life, and the truth to all who come to your cross and lay it down!

The Padres are out and proud

From FRC:
This past Sunday, at the San Diego Padres baseball game, what was advertised as a "Free Floppy Hat Night" for kids under 14 turned out to be a double play. While the Padres management was enticing families with the giveaway for kids, it was also promoting the evening as a Gay Pride night at the ballpark. Children who received free hats were treated to the Gay Man's Chorus of San Diego singing the national anthem prior to what one homosexual group billed as "Out at the Park with the San Diego Padres."The San Diego Padres organization should be ashamed that they would promote such an event on a night they specifically designed for the family. On this curveball of an evening, the Padres struck out.

How a leading gay activist embraces the truth


Read the story here. by Michael Glatze, former 'gay rights' leader.
Pictured: (Michael Glatze with Matthew Shepard's mother, Judy Shepard (Harvard University photo)

Young Gay America launched YGA Magazine in 2004, to pretend to provide a "virtuous counterpart" to the other newsstand media aimed at gay youth. I say "pretend" because the truth was, YGA was as damaging as anything else out there, just not overtly pornographic, so it was more "respected."


...It became clear to me, as I really thought about it – and really prayed about it – that homosexuality prevents us from finding our true self within. We cannot see the truth when we're blinded by homosexuality.
We believe, under the influence of homosexuality, that lust is not just acceptable, but a virtue. But there is no homosexual "desire" that is apart from lust.
