Obama’s speech to the Muslim world was another eye opener of his true intentions to unite every “tribe, people, language, and nation” together as a new world order. His call was to remake the world based on what was written in the “Holy Koran, the Talmud, and the Holy Bible.” In an instant Obama has put these books on equal footing to be used as needed resources for building a brave new world. Obama used the words of Christ from the Sermon on the Mount to indicate that the golden rule – “do to others what you would have them to do to you” as a “rule that lies at the heart of every religion”. And then went on to say, “This truth transcends nations and peoples – a belief that isn’t new; that isn’t black or white or brown; that isn’t Christian, or Muslim or Jew. It’s a belief that pulsed in the cradle of civilization, and that still beats in the heart of billions.” Continue reading President Obama Openly Denies the Exclusiveness of Christianity
This country has been on a downward spiral of lawlessness for some time now. We can all remember the school yard shootings where children killed other children, where college students went on a rampage against their own classmates, where a sniper randomly kills innocent bystanders, where a disgruntled ex-employee reenters the job site to wound and kill fellow employees, and then most recently a husband and father sets his own house on fire and crashes a small plane into an office building (less than 10 miles from my house). What in the world is happening? Continue reading Lawlessness Leads to Anarchy
Before we ask that question, why Haiti is suffering, our hearts first cry out for all the pain and anguish of the Haitian people. As believers in Christ compassion would lead us to do everything we can to relieve their untold suffering. It might be giving to our local church to fund a relief effort. It might be going our self or sending others to help in the relief effort. But as true Christians we would also be led through the Holy Spirit to help them understand what is happening in the world and help them make an appropriate response to the mercy of God. Continue reading Why is Haiti Suffering?
This world is in its present trouble and distress because men and women have rebelled against God. They have blurred the lines of Christianity’s exclusiveness between other world religions and are reaping the fruits of their own evil deeds. God is pouring His punishment down upon them because the hour of His judgment has come. In this country rebellion against God has reached a level never seen before in Christian history. In the past twenty years I have personally witnessed an unholy exchange in America. Continue reading Rebellion and the Lukewarm Church
All three Apostles (John, Paul, and James) agree that the testing of our faith produces endurance and that if endurance be allowed to take its stand it will bring about the perfection in our life that Christ desires. (I Peter 1:6-7; Romans 5:3-5) The Bible says, “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22b)
Going Through Trials Are Necessary
This means we do not have a choice! That all must go through many hardships, difficulties, trials, periods of suffering, tribulation, and to some degree even persecution. No Christian is exempt from these hardships. This is not just in the beginning but throughout our Christian pilgrimage.
Yet the church leads many people to accept Christ as their Savior and never tells them that these things will happen as sure as the sun rises in the East. The church as a whole is negligent to share this with the new disciples in Christ. And for those who have been Christians for many years can attest that this is true.
The question we must ask this morning… Continue reading Trials: Our Path to Perfection
