50 people created in the image of God

Sunday, June 12th, 2016 at 8:36 pm

Fifty people created in the image of God are dead as the result of one man bent on inciting terror. Fifty families are stricken with grief today as they mourn the loss of son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, cousin, mother, and father. Friends are grieving.

The problem is not the sexual orientation of these fifty (I am not condoning their sin just as I expect others would not condone my sin).

The problem is not the weapons used in the massacre. More people were killed with box cutters on September 11.

The problem is not Islam even though its adherents have been terrorizing the United States since the founding of the country (Thomas Jefferson had a Koran in his library not because he respected the religion, but because he wanted to learn more about the Koran’s followers who were attacking U.S. ships at sea).

The problem is not the political party who is in power at any given time. Terrorists have attacked when Democrats had power and when Republicans had power.

The problem is much closer to home. In fact, the problem is even closer than that.

The problem is my heart and your heart. All of creation has been affected by the fall of man in the Garden of Eden. Our hearts are deceitful, selfish, prone to sin. Every thought, desire, decision, and action is tainted because of sin.

We have bought into the lie that we are basically good people. Outwardly, we might appear good, and we might even do a lot of good things. But in the end, we still have a heart problem. Even all the people who faithfully go to churches every Sunday morning have this heart problem. It is a heart problem that only God can change. God can and is willing to take a stony heart and replace it with a heart of flesh.

If you don’t think you have a heart problem, I challenge you to take the Good Person Test: http://www.voicecrying.com/good/001.shtml

Many people implore God to save America. God’s way of saving is not man’s way. He wants your heart.

Helping out the poor

Thursday, October 30th, 2008 at 5:10 pm

In this election season, much has been said about the redistribution of wealth – of helping out the poor. Jesus addressed this issue in scripture:

Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always. John 12:1-8

When the disciple wanted to take the woman’s ointment, sell it, and give the money to the poor, Jesus rebuked him. In effect Jesus was saying, “If you want to help poor, help the poor with your own money, not with someone else’s.”

It ain’t working

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008 at 2:38 pm

1 in 4 teen girls has an STD. It ain’t working. The sex-ed classes and promotion of safe sex seems to be hurting our teens rather than helping. Let’s get back to old-fashioned morality for the sake of our children.

Another strike against embryonic stem cell research

Sunday, January 7th, 2007 at 3:06 pm

For at least the past seven years, researchers have been studying stem cells extracted from amniotic fluid. These stem cells are extracted without harming the mother or baby. Results are promising. Read the article.

When will the baby murderers give up?

Separation

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006 at 4:50 pm

According to the Bible, we are to practice separation. But how far are we to take it? And over what should we separate? It seems that Christians will separate from other Christians over little things. You let your women wear pants? I can’t fellowship with you! You don’t let your women wear pants? I can’t fellowship with you! You use the NIV? I can’t fellowship with you! You use the KJV? I can’t fellowship with you! You watch movies at the theater? I can’t fellowship with you! You don’t let people go to the theaters? I can’t fellowship with you! There are a lot more examples that I’m sure you can list. Why do we separate over some of these things? It seems in the world of Christianity, we will separate over any and everything, but in the world of politics, if it says Republican, we’re all for it. These things ought not to be. We won’t accept another Christian because of minor differences, but we will vote Republican even if the Republican is for killing babies or gay marriage. This is a sad state.

Turn about is fair play?

While we are over in the Middle East trying to Americanize Muslim nations, the Muslims are over here trying to convert America. We now have a Muslim about to be sworn in to Congress – using the Koran in place of the Bible. Read the story here.

Stem Cell Research

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006 at 4:39 pm

Check out StemCellResearch.org. They have a score card that shows how many diseases and injuries that have been successfully treated with adult stem cells (found in bone marrow) and those that have been successfully treated with embryonic stem cells (those taken from murdered babies). The score is 72-0.

So why aren’t more people pushing for adult stem cell research?

Boycotts

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006 at 10:24 am

Many people have joined boycotts on Ford and more recently Wal-mart because of the support those companies give to queer groups. If you do so, you’ll have to add a few more companies to your list. One queer group, the Human Rights Campaign, ranks companies based on their friendliness, acceptance, and promotion of the queer lifestyle. Here’s a few more companies that they scored highly:

  • Raytheon
  • Boeing
  • Honeywell International
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Gap
  • Levi Strauss
  • Liz Claiborne
  • Nike
  • Nordstrom
  • DaimlerChrysler
  • GM
  • Volkswagen
  • Apple
  • Dell
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • Lexmark
  • NCR
  • Sun Microsystems
  • Tech Data
  • Xerox

In all, there were 138 companies that received a perfect score.

On the other hand, if you are boycotting the queer-friendly companies, then you should support these companies that were ranked very low by the HRC:

  • ExxonMobil
  • Meijer Inc.
  • Perot Systems
  • Reebok
  • Northwest Airlines
  • The Men’s Wearhouse
  • J.C. Penney
  • Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Nissan
  • Dun & Bradstreet
  • Gallup
  • Ben & Jerry’s
  • Kroger
  • Progressive
  • Ball Corp.
  • Cooper Tire
  • Dow Jones
  • Circuit City
  • Radio Shack
  • Toys ‘R’ Us

Holding babies for ransom

Friday, July 28th, 2006 at 11:07 pm

Recently, Tony Campolo appeared on the Albert Mohler Show. Mr. Campolo provided his opinion on the abortion issue. He said abortions go down when the economy is good. He said we should raise the minimum wage and provide healthcare and daycare so poorer women will be in a better financial position to give birth to their babies. In other words, he is saying “Give us some money or we will kill the babies.”

Also, Mr. Campolo said we shouldn’t outlaw abortions because the number of illegal abortions will go up. In other words, he is saying don’t make a law because it causes some to break the law. Should we not have laws against theft because then some will break the law? Should we not have laws against murder because then some will break the law?

The pro-abortion (anti-consequence) crowd has silly reasoning indeed!
