Killing of Christians

While our government and the main stream media would rather look the other way and even go so far as to deny that the killing and persecution of Christians is happening, the truth is still getting out. It is amazing to me that in this country that was established on the law of Moses, we have a leader who claims to be a Christian who supports a religion whose tenets promote the killing of those same Christians. But then again that should not surprise me really. While our President makes the claim to Christianity, there has been little evidence to support his claim. And yes, I am judging his actions, as follower of Christ it is our responsibility to point out when leaders who claim the mantle of Christianity, lead their followers down the path of unrighteousness. And that is exactly what Mr. Obama is doing. While Mr. Obama could not be in place without God’s approval, that does not mean that he himself is favored by God. God uses ungodly men as well as godly, you only have to look at your Bible to find many instances of this. Look at Nebuchadnezzar  for one.

The culling of the Christians in the Middle East is a forerunner to the destruction of the Jews and the attempted destruction of Israel. It is naive to think that if the killing of the Christians is successful in the Middle East it will stop there. Logic alone will tell us that the efforts will be increased in Europe. The violence is spreading rapidly there as well and Islamic organizations already have established strongholds in South and Central America, as well as in Canada, where it is becoming more and more illegal to even speak against them. And for those who would rather hide their heads in the sand and say that it could never happen here in the United States, let me ask you a question, Why is our Attorney General so quick to sue cities, states, school districts and etc. to make allowances for the practice of Islam, including prayer rooms in schools, and at the same time refusing to allow the same rights to Christians?  Why are Christian principles being disallowed in the military and our service men and women being told that if they state their beliefs, they can be tried for treason? These are just a few instances of change in this country since this administration has been in power. Is it really too extreme to see a time in the near future where Christians suffer the same level of persecution that they are suffering in the Middle East?

We know that for prophecy to be fulfilled, this time must  come and if we are true followers of Christ, we must be sure that we are doing as we are instructed. As Jesus himself told us, as wise man watches the sky to see the signs. So please my friends, do not take your eyes off of heaven. Be prepared, and follow instructions. They are all there written in the Book! Please do not hide your eyes and deny the reality of what is happening in the world.

The pictures below and the article that they are from are just a small example of what is happening, please take time to read the story and ask why it is not being covered. Also ask why our President is so insistent that the very people causing this destruction, be released from prison.

Canadian relief for Moore tornado victims denied at border – Windsor – CBC News

Canadian relief for Moore tornado victims denied at border – Windsor – CBC News.

U.S. border officials want 20,000 kg of food itemized, physically inspected before entering

A Canadian shipment of relief goods bound for storm-ravaged Oklahoma has been stopped at the Canada-U.S. border in Windsor, Ont.

American officials will not allow the 20,000 kilograms of food, blankets and diapers into the country until every item on board is itemized in alphabetical order and has the country of origin of every product noted.

Dennis Sauve, the volunteer co-ordinator for Windsor Lifeline Outreach and the food bank co-ordinator at the Windsor Christian Fellowship, the two organizations that gathered the goods, said it’s a “physical impossibility” to do the paperwork required in time to get the perishable food to Oklahoma before it spoils.

Pentagon Taps Anti-Christian Extremist for Religious Tolerance Policy

Pentagon Taps Anti-Christian Extremist for Religious Tolerance Policy.

“Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”

Those words were recently written by Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), in a column he wrote for the Huffington Post. Weinstein will be a consultant to the Pentagon to develop new policies on religious tolerance, including a policy for court-martialing military chaplains who share the Christian Gospel during spiritual counseling of American troops.

Weinstein decries what he calls the “virulent religious oppression” perpetrated by conservative Christians, whom he refers to as “monstrosities” and “pitiable unconstitutional carpetbaggers,” comparing them to “bigots” in the Deep South during the civil rights era.

He cites Dr. James Dobson—the famous Christian founder of Focus on the Family—as “illustrating the extremist, militant nature of these virulently homophobic organizations’ rhetorically-charged propaganda.” Regarding those who teach orthodox Christian beliefs from the Bible, Weinstein concludes, “Let’s call these ignoble actions what they are: the senseless and cowardly squallings of human monsters.”

Weinstein then endorses the ultra-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), who publishes a list of “hate groups.” Alongside truly deplorable organizations like the KKK, the SPLC’s list includes a host of traditional Christian organizations (for their support of traditional marriage) and Tea Party organizations (for supporting limited government). Weinstein says SPLC correctly labels them all as “hate groups.”

Floyd Lee Corkins—the first person ever convicted of domestic terrorism in federal court under the laws of Washington, D.C.—told the FBI that he chose his intended shooting spree targets from the SPLC website’s map. Corkins was arrested at the offices of the Family Research Council (FRC) after shooting a security guard in August 2012. His court documents state that Corkins intended to kill as many people as possible.

Weinstein also supports Lt. Col. Jack Rich, the Army officer who wrote to subordinate officers that soldiers who hold traditional Christian beliefs agreeing with organizations on SPLC’s “hate group” list are incompatible with “Army values” and should be carefully watched and excluded from military service.

According to Weinstein, “We should as a nation effusively applaud Lt. Col. Rich.” He adds that the nation should “venture further” than Rich’s recommendations, saying, “We MUST vigorously support the continuing efforts to expose pathologically anti-gay, Islamaphobic, and rabidly intolerant agitators for what they are: die-hard enemies of the United States Constitution. Monsters, one and all. To do anything less would be to roll out a red carpet to those who would usher in a blood-drenched, draconian era of persecutions, nationalistic militarism, and superstitious theocracy.”

Many media outlets are silent on this disturbing new alliance between fanatical secularists and leaders in the Pentagon appointed by President Barack Obama and Secretary Chuck Hagel, under which the U.S. military would officially consult with someone with such foaming-at-the-mouth passionate hostility toward traditional Christians, including Evangelicals and devout Catholics. The military—America’s most heroic and noble institution—includes countless people of faith, and this represents a radical departure from the U.S. military’s warm embrace of people of faith in its ranks.

Yet the little coverage this story is getting is positive, such as this Washington Post columnthat somehow manages not to carry any of these frightening quotes from Weinstein and instead actually endorses the Pentagon’s meeting with him. Sally Quinn’s Post column also approvingly quotes MRFF Advisory Board member Larry Wilkerson as saying, “Sexual assault and proselytizing, according to Wilkerson, ‘are absolutely destructive of the bonds that keep soldiers together.’”

Did you get that? They say having someone share the Christian gospel with you is akin to being raped. Weinstein makes sure there are no doubts, being quoted by the Post as adding, “This is a national security threat. What is happening [aside from sexual assault] is spiritual rape. And what the Pentagon needs is to understand is that it is sedition and treason. It should be punished.” Read the rest at: Pentagon Taps Anti-Christian Extremist for Religious Tolerance Policy.


Pro-abortion group hires Obama-linked consulting firm to grill pro-lifers in their homes | The Daily Caller

 

Pro-abortion group hires Obama-linked consulting firm to grill pro-lifers in their homes | The Daily Caller.

The pro-abortion organization NARAL Pro-Choice America hired a consulting firm linked to President  to conduct extensive video interviews with young pro-life activists in their homes more than a year ago, without informing the pro-life activists that the videos were intended for NARAL’s use.

At least one of the videos was aired this month at NARAL’s Washington dinner introducing the organization’s new president, Ilyse Hogue. The video was presented at the dinner in order to show pro-choice activists the “passion” of pro-lifers on the other side of the issue “in an effort to fire up (NARAL) members.” President Obama alsosent a video message to NARAL that was shown at the dinner.

The young pro-life activist featured in the video had no idea that his interview footage would be used by NARAL to rile people up against him.

A Little Redneck Advice

With all the hoopla about gun control and taking away American Citizens right to bear arms, I thought that maybe I could educate those who think that it is going to be easy, as well as those who think that guns are our only option.

Adam Smith — A Man who Saw the Future

I find it fascinating to go back and read the words from people who were influential in our history. Adam Smith is one that is often quoted and he was a well respected man from his time. What I find truly interesting is how some of things that he wrote are so applicable to what we are seeing today. In the following statement, he could be talking about liberals  democrats and even to President Obama himself. I wish I could say that he also gives us an answer on how to deal with the problems that come along with the “man of the system” that we see now. I wish I could totally agree with him that most of them are benevolent. What I see with so many of those who wish to impose their own system upon us, is that they are so fanatic, that they don’t care if they bring down everything in order to apply what they think upon everyone. This type of fanatic is destructive and will destroy everything in order to have his own way.

Adam Smith (1723-1790) contrasts two different ways by which the evils of society might be reformed: the “man of humanity and benevolence” who uses reason and persuasion and “the man of system” who imposes his own “ideal plan of government” on others by force:

Amidst the turbulence and disorder of faction, a certain spirit of system is apt to mix itself with that public spirit which is founded upon the love of humanity, upon a real fellow–feeling with the inconveniencies and distresses to which some of our fellow–citizens may be exposed. This spirit of system commonly takes the direction of that more gentle public spirit; always animates it, and often inflames it even to the madness of fanaticism. The leaders of the discontented party seldom fail to hold out some plausible plan of reformation which, they pretend, will not only remove the inconveniencies and relieve the distresses immediately complained of, but will prevent, in all time coming, any return of the like inconveniencies and distresses. They often propose, upon this account, to new–model the constitution, and to alter, in some of its most essential parts, that system of government under which the subjects of a great empire have enjoyed, perhaps, peace, security, and even glory, during the course of several centuries together. The great body of the party are commonly intoxicated with the imaginary beauty of this ideal system, of which they have no experience, but which has been represented to them in all the most dazzling colours in which the eloquence of their leaders could paint it. Those leaders themselves, though they originally may have meant nothing but their own aggrandisement, become many of them in time the dupes of their own sophistry, and are as eager for this great reformation as the weakest and foolishest of their followers. Even though the leaders should have preserved their own heads, as indeed they commonly do, free from this fanaticism, yet they dare not always disappoint the expectation of their followers; but are often obliged, though contrary to their principle and their conscience, to act as if they were under the common delusion. The violence of the party, refusing all palliatives, all temperaments, all reasonable accommodations, by requiring too much frequently obtains nothing; and those inconveniencies and distresses which, with a little moderation, might in a great measure have been removed and relieved, are left altogether without the hope of a remedy.

The man whose public spirit is prompted altogether by humanity and benevolence, will respect the established powers and privileges even of individuals, and still more those of the great orders and societies, into which the state is divided. Though he should consider some of them as in some measure abusive, he will content himself with moderating, what he often cannot annihilate without great violence. When he cannot conquer the rooted prejudices of the people by reason and persuasion, he will not attempt to subdue them by force; but will religiously observe what, by Cicero, is justly called the divine maxim of Plato, never to use violence to his country no more than to his parents. He will accommodate, as well as he can, his public arrangements to the confirmed habits and prejudices of the people; and will remedy as well as he can, the inconveniencies which may flow from the want of those regulations which the people are averse to submit to. When he cannot establish the right, he will not disdain to ameliorate the wrong; but like Solon, when he cannot establish the best system of laws, he will endeavour to establish the best that the people can bear.

The man of system, on the contrary, is apt to be very wise in his own conceit; and is often so enamoured with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. He goes on to establish it completely and in all its parts, without any regard either to the great interests, or to the strong prejudices which may oppose it. He seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess–board. He does not consider that the pieces upon the chess–board have no other principle of motion besides that which the hand impresses upon them; but that, in the great chess–board of human society, every single piece has a principle of motion of its own, altogether different from that which the legislature might chuse to impress upon it. If those two principles coincide and act in the same direction, the game of human society will go on easily and harmoniously, and is very likely to be happy and successful. If they are opposite or different, the game will go on miserably, and the society must be at all times in the highest degree of disorder. Read more at Online Library of Liberty

UK Social Workers Take Foster Children Away From Conservative Couple | Video | TheBlaze.com.

Is this a vision of our future? If the political party in charge of some government agency that is charged with the welfare of children, decides that you belong to the wrong party, they just take the children away, regardless of your history, your qualifications or anything else? And will other decisions start to be made the same way? What about housing? Medical care? Schooling?

When people start down this road of discrimination on the basis of political beliefs, you condemn those who don’t agree with you to a life of lesser opportunities and unequal lives. When you start down the road to dividing people, you are starting the process of dehumanizing them. The next step leads to genocide and slavery. I have to ask the people of this country who have been so passionate about running down people who have a different view, what is your desire for the future? What is going to be the end result of your goals? Where does what you desire lead?

Amusing Bunni is a dear friend, a blogger, and the maker of the most adorable kitty videos ever. She used do a lot of Conservative blogging (from Chicago!) but a while back the death threats she received (from sickos who didn’t even TRY to hide their IP addresses!) got to be too much so she backed off from the politics and just did adorable videos mostly, while coming to other Conservative blogs and making them better for her having stopped by there in our comments sections. I knew something was going on with her when I saw this:

God is in Control of All Things

No matter how bad the moment seems or the future looks, God is still in control. We may wish that there was a different result to our current circumstances, but with everything, it is His plan that is in action, and the results are with Him. We have our instructions, and we have our faith. He is always there, we only have to acknowledge and accept Him. If we turn away because we desired a different outcome, we are denying that He alone is in control. God bless you!

Choosing Love or Choosing Death

English: Icon of Jesus Christ

English: Icon of Jesus Christ (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Due gratitude and reverence to God.[Websters]

1: [Verb] In a general sense to be pleased with; to regard with affection, on account of some qualities which excite pleasing sensations or desire of gratification. We love a friend, on account of some qualities which give us pleasure in his society. We love a man who has done us a favor; in which case, gratitude enters into the composition of our affection. We love our parents and our children, on account of their connection with us, and on account of many qualities which please us. We love to retire to a cool shade in summer. We love a warm room in winter. we love to hear an eloquent advocate. The christian loves his Bible. In short, we love whatever gives us pleasure and delight, whether animal or intellectual; and if our hearts are right, we love God above all things, as the sum of all excellence and all the attributes which can communicate happiness to intelligent beings. In other words, the christian loves God with the love of complacency in his attributes, the love of benevolence towards the interest of his kingdom, and the love of gratitude for favors received. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind – Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Matt. 22..

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

As followers of Christ, our most important goal is to do what Christ instructed us to do. When asked which is the great commandment in the law, He answered:

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37

He continued:

“And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself”

In November, we Americans have an opportunity to choose those who will represent us. I frame it that way for the very simple reason that according to our own founding documents, that is the reason for elections. We are not choosing rulers, we are choosing representatives. If we as followers of Christ, truly desire to obey what Jesus Christ tells us are the two great commandments, we must look at those who are striving to fill the offices that are open, and evaluate them on how they represent us and our values. Since Jesus gave us the two most important values, these are the first things we must evaluate them on.

  1. Do they love God?
  2. Do they love their neighbor as they do themselves?

Determining if they love God must rely first on their word.

1 John 2:23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

Next they must show that they love God by their actions. We know that just believing that Jesus is the Son of God is not enough because even the demons believe. So belief is just the beginning! We must observe and see if they have put on the new man.

Ephesians 4:25-32

King James Version (KJV)

25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

27 Neither give place to the devil.

28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Ephesians 5:1-6

King James Version (KJV)

5 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

No one on earth is perfect but there must be some evidence that those who profess to love God and follow Christ, actually believe in what they say. If they do, it should be apparent in what they do!

  • Do they lie?
  • Do they steal and take from others?
  • Do they labor and work in order that they can give as well as provide for their own families?
  • Do they speak empty words and try to mislead those around them with those words?
  • Do they give of themselves?
  • Do they promote or practice sexual immorality?
  • Do they worship false idols?
  • Do they force others to worship or accept false idols?

These are just a few things we must evaluate when we evaluate those we want to represent us. What about loving our neighbor as ourselves? I see so many people saying “We must love our neighbor,” and that is quite true. How do we do that? We do that by finishing the commandment, “as ourselves.”

What expectations do we have for ourselves? Jesus said “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me.” John 7:16 So what is our doctrine?
What about abortion? I find it amazing that anyone who claims to follow Christ could even question whether we should allow and accept abortion. Especially those who think that we should except rape and incest! Since when does the child of the person who commits a crime, deserve to pay for that crime with their own life?  I would ask why anyone would think that a woman, just by the value of her being a woman, should have the right to judge who should live or die? Does a woman have some greater intelligence or insight into what is the will of God or what would be the future of the child? Does anyone truly think that a woman making the choice of life or death of the child she carries, does so strictly on what is best for the child? By saying that the woman does have that right, you have to go beyond that and ask when does the woman’s insight and intelligence no longer matter? Does she have that same right when the child is born? Those that chose to represent us and promote abortion and even in some cases, the killing of the baby after it is born alive, go against the values of God and place themselves on the same level. Murder is murder no matter how it is sanctioned. An innocent child has committed no crime and deserves the opportunity to live. Allowing anyone to make this decision, no matter how ignorant they may be on life, puts their eternal soul at risk. And if we choose these who promote death  to represent us, we are saying that we approve of their choice.
As for war and supporting those who promote it, war is something that must be judged on the basis of the reason for it. War for power is wrong and never should be supported. Again, it is something that we must evaluate our representatives on.
We must forgive others for their sins and it is not our place to judge. However if we fail to evaluate those we choose to represent us, we by our actions will be choosing to ignore the instructions given to us.
When we choose love, we must choose God first. If we chose love as the world defines it, we are choosing death.

Lawlessness

No political correctness

No political correctness (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I will give fair warning that some people might find this post offensive and it is not my intent to offend. What my intent is is to bring to the forefront a problem that is only spoken about with people you trust to a certain degree and a problem that is covered up and plastered over in political correctness to another degree.

Let me start by saying that I am awaiting God‘s Kingdom where we can all live together and that immigration itself is a great thing. What I do have a problem with is the open border mentality that seems to say, let anyone come across no matter their purpose. Not everyone who enters this country wants either the best for themselves, or the best for the people of this country. As parents we have a responsibility for our children to protect them from harm. From drugs, from those who would molest or rape them, and from those who would use them in many other ways for evil.  Turning a blind eye to the evil that comes across the border simply enables even more of it to come across.

There are those who say, yes, but it isn’t Christian to block people from entering the best country in the world! And I agree! However,  God Himself tells us that we should obey the law does He not?  Those that come here illegally are not following God’s will, does that make their actions right? There is a process to obtain entrance to the country, but like other laws, there are some who think that it doesn’t apply to them. They want what they want and they will take it regardless of the cost to others or the rights that they infringe upon.

Another question to ask is are we truly aiding those who want to come here for a better life. If by our actions we are allowing them to be abused and used by others for an evil purpose, in my mind this tells me we are doing the work of evil and not good. The use of drugs and the use of innocents to carry and distribute those drugs has increased and will continue to increase if we simply turn a blind eye to it. Spreading out from that is murder, rape, robbery, and all other immoral actions. We see increased costs to everyone, not in money, although that is a factor, but in lives lost and heartache as well.

Laws are established by a government in order to protect the borders and people within that country. We as citizens have a responsibility to follow the laws or work with in the system to change them. We as Christians owe first to God! This is not a question of God over government, this is a question of respect for God’s will over people’s desire. People desiring to do harm to others do not have the right, nor do we owe them the opportunity, to break the laws of the country that we live in, in order to fulfill their desires. If we do this, we are saying that lawlessness should prevail!

God bless you, watch the video below, consider the cost and the loss, then if you see fit add to the discussion!


Because Darkness Hates the Light via Zilla of the Resistance

Whatever your politics are, evil can not be allowed to continue within the darkness, we must become enlightened in order to rid the world of it’s presence!

Because Darkness Hates the Light

Evil acts against innocent people will not be stopped and will only worsen unless if good people rise up to make it stop.

The same cretins who’ve been committing identity theft against me ever since thatPolitical Moms blogger contest this past spring have also been doing it to The Lonely Conservative (who won the contest) in addition to far, FAR, worse – and it has been escalating:

If you’re a regular reader you’re aware of the harassment I’ve endured since the Top 25 Political Moms contest this past spring. It all started when a few of us conservative bloggers noticed that the progressive bloggers were extremely far-left and they were telling their readers to vote for their blogs because they wouldn’t want a conservative winning and spreading “dangerous family values.” Well, that got our ire up a little bit, so we responded in kind, and dubbed some of them “commie mommies.” It’s not like one or two of them didn’t already refer to themselves that way, so we didn’t see any harm in it. No big deal, right? To make a long story short, they tried to get us disqualified, so we all agreed to remove any negative posts about the competition.

Bill of Rights (via Village of the Banned)

I reprinted this from Sami at Village of the Banned and Voting American; If you have never visited his sites and you love this country, he is a patriot first and foremost and you may learn a few things.. But be forewarned, he does not hold back and he is very passionate. He also has a cadre of very impassioned followers who are ready and willing to engage you. So if you are looking to learn or want to debate, it is a great place to check out. God bless!

Unlimited Power

I haven’t really written anything about the Supreme Court’s ruling this week that the Healthcare Bill that passed, is actually constitutional based on the fact that it is a tax. I have a lot of questions and I do not like the answers. I am going to pose some of those questions to you my friends and would like you to consider the answer.

  • Are there now any limits on what Congress can require us to purchase?
  • Can Congress now tax us for our lifestyle?
  • Has Congress given one un-elected person in the form of the HHS Secretary, the power to decide what is the correct lifestyle we need to live?
  • Can this be used for Religious Beliefs? By that I mean can the HHS Secretary decide that a Christian lifestyle would be dangerous and therefore anyone who practices our faith could be taxed so much that we can not survive?
  • Have we gone from limited government to unlimited government?
  • If this is not repealed by the next Congress and it continues in force, can it be stopped at any other point?

I realize that some of these are questions without answers, but the possibilities that I see are not ones that lead to good. This seems to me to be mans attempt to force utopia onto his fellow man. Social Engineering at it’s worst. I know that there are some who look forward to the benefits, but I ask you to take a closer look at the probabilities that mortal man will use this to try and force those that don’t agree with his idea of utopia, to accept it anyway. Just as Nebuchadezzer tried to force Shadrah, Meshach, and Abedniggo to bow down to his golden idol, we will probably be pressured to abide by rules and regulations that we find repugnant. But like the “three men in the fire” we have reassurance that God will be with us and we can trust that whatever they try to force upon us, as long as we have faith and stand true to the word of God, He will be the “fourth man in the fire.”

Forward or Froward?

My good friend Christine at Talk Wisdom posted a really good piece Saturday. I’d like to share it with Loopy’s readers. Here are some excerpts … included in that is something she posted on February 21, 2007 …

Forward or Froward?

As many readers probably already know, the new 2012 Obama campaign has decided to utilize the term “Forward.”  That particular word can mean many things…including the connotation in the past of Communist/Marxist/Socialist government movements.

Excerpt from “New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism” article:
The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.
Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”
“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.
The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

Those who have been paying attention to the disastrous policies of ObaMARXIST are not fooled into thinking that the slogan they have chosen is the “innocent” use of the term “Forward”!! Any reasonable person can surmise that this was done purposely in order to “hide in plain sight” their Marxist ideology for the benefit of Obama’s base.

The Froward Heart

Pro 11:20 They that are of a froward heart [are] abomination to the LORD: but [such as are] upright in [their] way [are] his delight. (KJV)
Froward. Not a term that we hear much these days.
Let’s look at the definitions and synonyms of that word from Dictionary.com:

******* Wow! That’s certainly a “loaded” word, full of negative meanings!!
Other Bible translations for Proverbs 11:30 say this:

NLT – Pro 11:20 – The Lord hates people with twisted hearts, but he delights in those who have integrity. New Living Translation © 1996 Tyndale Charitable Trust

RSV – Pro 11:20 – Men of perverse mind are an abomination to the LORD, but those of blameless ways are his delight. Revised Standard Version © 1947, 1952.
The Bible is filled with verses regarding the heart, and the character of the unrepentant.
That’s the bad news which we all must face about our spiritual state of being since the Fall.
The Bible is an honest book. It records the deeds, errors, sins, and evil done by men because of the “froward heart.”
Just click on the link above and read the list of descriptions regarding the froward heart! The verses listed there clearly tell us what the unregenerate heart is severely capable of…and it’s not pretty!

Life

At one time I thought that most people would automatically stop to help someone who was hurt or dying. There have been many stories lately of people that instead of stopping and helping, just walk on by. Or even sometimes steal from them or abuse them in some way.

I truly believe that this is one of the worst facets of our current culture of death. How can we expect people to respect life and consider the importance of that life, when it is treated with such disregard by a large portion of our society? How can people who are convinced that it is quite okay to kill an unborn baby, believe that life is sacred. How can they believe that life matters when it doesn’t seem to to all the people that they know?

We are facing a generation who have no concept of the importance of life, and worse, we have leaders who actively embrace this culture of death. These leaders are at the highest level of our government, from the President on down. And besides their own beliefs, they are determined that those of us who believe in life, must give in to their desires and encourage and promote death. They believe that we should even pay for it and will go to any lengths to force us to do so.

This is the ultimate battle between life and death. Unfortunately, death seems to be in the ascent at this time. It is important that we work together to change this trend. It will be something that God will consider when judgment day comes, because if you are not opposed to this, you are saying that it is okay. There is no fence that you can sit on here. There is no middle of the road. Either you choose life, or you are supporting death. There is an election coming up, and we know that those who are in charge now, support death, I would encourage you to investigate their positions yourself and choose life.

Biltrix has a post up this morning that was inspiring and a wonderful question for all those who would rather pretend that life does not begin at conception. Please take time to visit their site and read this and other important posts.

Obamacare “Secrecy Clause” Demands Payment for Abortions

by Alan Sears

When Congress passed ObamaCare in March 2010, then Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.) admitted she didn’t know what was in the bill, but promised constituents and fellow politicians, “We’ll find out what’s in it once we pass it.” Talk about a harbinger of things to come.

And in the two years since the bill’s passage the American people have not only found out what’s in it, they’ve discovered that part of the legislation purposely hides the fact that ObamaCare covers abortions. (This although politicians supporting ObamaCare repeatedly told the American people that abortion would not be covered.)

When looking through the pages the healthcare overhaul, specifically Sec. 1310(b)(3), on page 781, one finds the “Secrecy Clause.” This clause outlines how ObamaCare both demands that insurance companies pay for abortion and that they co-operate with the White House by keeping this coverage secret.
