An AP article by Emily Swanson recently claimed that most Americans support same-sex marriage. This article is nothing more than left-wing propaganda intended to influence culture rather than reflect it. Surveys of this kind can be skewed to make them say whatever you want them to say. On the contrary, a WPA Opinion Research Study found that 53% of voters believe marriage is only the union of one man and one woman. Regardless of whose study you look at, same-sex marriage must never become the law of the land or it will spark a revolt in the same way the Roe V. Wade decision gave birth to the modern Pro-Life movement that is steadily winning back the minds of common sense Americans who care about the unborn. It is natural law, common sense and a simple fact that marriage can only be the union of one man and one woman. Anything else is simply something else. A cat doesn’t become a dog just because you call it a dog. Americans of good faith must pray that the Court comes down on the right side of this issue, or we will most assuredly no longer be one nation under God.
It’s interesting to see people still puzzled as to why Hillary Clinton would have her own rules concerning her emails. It really is not surprising at all when one understands the prism through which she sees the world. It’s the same prism that allows President Obama to make up his own rules for illegal immigration–the prism of evolution. Let me explain. Looking through that prism human nature is constantly evolving and growing into higher order. The Constitution becomes a “living document,” in which rather than expressing a set of consistent principles based on unchanging human nature, it must change to keep up, or as one Supreme Court Justice, Charles Evans Hughes said, the Constitution is whatever the judge says it is. The contemporary individual is the most evolved and therefore the most authoritative. So rather than the individual conforming to a set of constant laws, the laws must conform to the wisdom of the individual. In other words, they are the law. The irony is that rather than being a step in true progressivism, it actually brings us back to the days when the King was the law; remember “Lex Rex?” In other words, progressivism is really regressive.
So let’s not be surprised when the progressive Democrats set themselves up to be the ultimate authority in matters, rather lets elect people to office who understand that human nature does not evolve, that the principles of law are constant, and individuals–no matter who they are–must conform to the law instead of trying to make the law conform to them.
The Obama administration just held a three day summit to address the issue of terrorism after which it became obvious that this was, in fact, a Community Organizer’s approach to a major world threat. When I first heard State department spokeswoman Marie Harf suggest that the answer to the ISIS threat was an effective jobs program, I thought this went beyond naiveté to idiocy. Now it’s clear she was simply parroting her boss’s Community Organizer thinking as demonstrated by the outcome of this three day summit. They came to the same conclusion—more jobs! What idiocy! It’s clear they are seeing through the lens of social inequality instead of the reality that this is a suicide cult bent on destroying western civilization to establish an Islamic Caliphate. Churchill’s axiom holds true: He has no heart who is not a liberal at age 20, and he has no brain who is not a Conservative by age 40. God deliver us from idiocy!
I’ve said it before—even without the benefit of a three day summit—the answer to addressing the threat before us is twofold: First, Congress must declare war against radical Islam and then we must build a coalition of nations to eliminate the current generation of Jihadists. Then we can begin to teach their progeny about the blessings of liberty and self-governance. This must be a multi-generational effort that will be nearly impossible to accomplish without God’s help, but the alternative is unacceptable.
Yesterday, 21 Egyptian Christians, our brothers in Christ, were beheaded by ISIS and video taped for the world to see. How will we respond?
Gary Bauer reports that The 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, has just issued a disturbing report entitled “Edge of Extinction,” which tells us that Christians and other religious and ethnic minorities are being exterminated and face genocide at the hands of ISIS. Among their findings is that Iraq’s Christian population, once 1.5 million, has been reduced to a remnant of just 300,000 without homes, jobs or churches.
The full report can be accessed at 21wilberforce.org. We need to share this information with pastors and Christian leaders for prayer and Spirit-led action. The challenge to American Christians is clear: How will we respond to the plight of our Christian family in peril overseas? In fact, will we take action or simply look the other way, because, after all, it’s not our fight?
It’s time for us to be reminded once again of the lesson taught to us by Rev. Martin Niemöller concerning persecution by godless, demonic Nazism,
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
It’s been said that those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it. How much more foolish is it to know history and repeat it anyway. God forbid it!
Our Christian brothers and sisters are praying and waiting for our action to rescue them from the hands of the enemy. A verse of Scripture that we often refer to in the cause of saving the unborn is just as applicable concerning the genocide of our Christian family,
“Rescue those being led away to death;
hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?” –Proverbs 24:11,12
We must pray like it all depends on God to see our Christian brothers and sisters delivered from the hands of ISIS and Radical Islamists, and we must act to do all we can to help in their rescue. Contact your representatives in Washington and demand that they move to defend those who cannot defend themselves, or as Niemöller reminds us, when they come for us there will be no one left to defend us.
Our regularly scheduled 2nd Sunday Meeting has been canceled for this month (Feb. 8th) We’ll see you on the 2nd Sunday of March– March 8th.
America, you have been singing “God Bless America” for over 200 years, and I have blessed you beyond all the nations of the world, but now you have gone beyond the tipping point of my wrath, and so judgment will come as it has to nations that have rejected me. Yet in my wrath I may remember mercy. If you will repent and begin singing and declaring “America Bless God!” and turn from your independent ways, my grace may still be shed on thee. I am looking for a man or a woman who will be courageous enough to declare that America is “One Nation Under God.” I will give him favor and turn the hearts of people toward him, and he will be your leader and there will be revival in the land. This move must be supported by the leadership of my people, called by my Name. If you will pray like it all depends on Me, and work like it all depends on you, I will do it, and your sons and daughters, your grandsons and granddaughters will know the liberty you have enjoyed and I will get the glory. I am looking for that man or woman who will declare
“We are One Nation Under God, and that will be the guiding foundation of all my political and legislative initiatives.”
That is the candidate who will win my favor. That is the man or woman I am waiting for. I have said it, and it will come to pass, because in my wrath I will remember mercy, for I am the Lord your God.
