Pro-Life Black Pastor Jailed

This is what happens when an organization whose very origin was designed to eugenicize the African-American population is morally "called out" for its continued stand against the unborn. This time the pastor is an African-American pastor.

Nevertheless, he was thrown in jail.

The origins of the Abortion movement are directly tied to Margaret Sanger and her organization, the American Birth Control League, later known as Planned Parenthood.

Once the government and the people get a handle on secularization as a cultural and legal norm, they will lose their fear of doing harm to Christians, and the beginning of Christian persecution will be upon us - yes, even in America. And after what I've seen in just the past five years as far as a people taking a moral plunge in this country, I know that anything is possible. Jesus said that persecution of believers for his name's sake this would be a sign of the nearness of the end of the age.

Matt. 24:9-13
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come.

1 Peter 4:16-19
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Why let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as to a faithful Creator.

Obama's Youth Service Corps...Religious Worship Forbidden

This is outrageous if true. Among the prohibited activities of the Obama Youth Volunteer Corps are:

"engaging in religious instruction" - Isn't that what Sunday School and Worship services do? So, in effect, in order to be a participant a person may not go to church since churches (and synagogues and mosques) engage in religious instruction.

In fact the language seems to desire to scrub participants clean of any hint of a connection to religious worship. This policy of secularization - of youth - is disturbing. Just what is going on here?

If it turns out that President Obama truly endorses these deep religious prohibitions, then it must be asked: why would any Christian would have a problem with a youth volunteer attending church, or bible study, or attending Sunday School? I have had suspicions about the President and his "salvation" and this only deepens them. This is among the many reasons why I believe Barack Hussein Obama may not even be a Christian.

So, the next question we must ask ourselves is this one: if he is not, then what?

My sister got married...

In a way this blog entry should have been an occasion to rejoice for her, but I just discovered something this week: I am estranged from her.

Yet what perplexes me is why didn't I know this?

I was not invited to her civil ceremony wedding. She called and announced her marriage to me days after the fact. Wow. He is a Muslim and a foreigner. She is a Christian, a hurting one it seems, but a believer nonetheless. Still, I would have loved to have been there. My parents would have, too. But she has turned her back on them too, it seems.

Lots of soul searching and self examination this week. I am hurt and a bit wounded by what has trasnpired. But I am still happy for her.

Well, it looks like I've got some work to sister has something against me.

Matt 5:23-24:
Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Obama meets with Gorbachev

President Obama has met and has had talks with former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. I've talked about him on this blog before, so you already know what I think of Gorbachev.

Note the Reuters photo of Gorby with the "Peace" dove in the blue background.
Ochen interestnaya!

Is he the Man of Sin? I don't know for sure, but his foundation, Green Cross International has all the global warming assuming, peace bringing, "world solutions-based" orientation of a global sinister plot that could control the world's economic, political, and commercial resources.

I read Mr. Faid's book about Gorbachev years ago and was impressed by it. And Mikhail Gorbachev did win the Nobel Prize. Of course, I could be wrong, nevertheless Faid's book is a compelling read given the time and season we now live in. But let's just conjecture for argument's sake say I'm on to something, Obama's meeting with him would be HUGE. Sort of like Jesus's meeting with John the Baptist. And I have said before, Obama's "aura" is for a reason. He may not be the Antichrist, that Man of Sin, but given the times and seasons we now live in he may be a forerunner - sent as a preparer for a charismatic leader of gravitas and stature whose vision and leadership will usher in global world peace.

Yet for the discerning believer, Obama is also a thermometer, a gauge of the world's hunger for leadership, its hunger for the cult of personality who can lead us all to peace as the world envisions peace. His design is to eliminate American "exceptionalism", her former role in the world by subduing her power and remaking her and thereby bringing her into the coordinated efforts of the nations of the world in terms of economics, commerce, political aims, and even justice.

But America is divided over these apparent aims. She is the last of the "holdout" nations to global unity. We had gotten quite used to our exceptionalism, but with Democrats in power - the President, the Congress, and a majority of state governorships - the exceptionalism we once had is gone and will probably be gone for good. The Devil plans to sift us as wheat and I believe Obama is his tool to that end.

But lets' not lose sight of the eschatological ball, Israel is his main target and she must be isolated by global boycott. Why? Because the holy hill of Zion - where JESUS(YESHUA) SHALL REIGN - is the Devil's prize. He seeks occupy that hill by world opinion and force of nations (UN?), by political necessity and military force. Right now, his religion, the religion of the False Prophet, occupies the hill (Al Aqsa Mosue) only partially, and even then by permission of Israel. The question is now, will America, Israel's last and most powerful ally, betray her? An anonymous intelligence specialist thinks it will likely be the case under the Obama administration.

The End Times are just about set. So where will YOU spend eternity?

Kings and Kingdoms....

People ask me all the time about Barack Obama and what he means for the United States - either for our good or for our bad - for our weal or for our woe. It always makes me chuckle. We'll find out, I usually say.

And because I'd written a blog entry some time ago about President Obama and was content to let events pass along, and because I can't help noticing the pointed concern from believers - bordering on fear - let me throw something in that I hadn't thought of before, but was suggested from a brilliant sermon I heard this weekend.

Is Obama worse than...

Antiochus Epiphanes?
Herod the Great?
Julian the Apostate?

Well, if not, then people of God can be assured that if these world leaders - hostile as they were to the WORD of God, hostile in varying degress to the PEOPLE of God, hostile in so many ways to the PRESENCE of God - could not destroy God's people, try though they might, then we as believing Christians have no good reasons to fear Barack Obama and a left wing government in the USA.

We should, however, begin to pray fervently, aloud, and very often for souls to be saved.

I believe America - the nation - is no longer under God's covering protection - though we remain a covenant nation, that is why we are seeing the abominable happen in our land socially, the radical reversal of our economic fortunes domestically and globally, and our foreign policy crumbling before our eyes. Our nation's enemies sharpen their swords for war and I have no doubt they intend to bring it. Almighty God "sends" these things our way so that we may cry aloud to him. The exact same things happened to Israel.

Let us open our Bibles and see what is plainly written. I think then we'll see that our situation is almost a carbon-copy of the stories of God's people and how they were delivered when, and only when, they repented.

A Vatican to Intelligent Design

"Intelligent design is incompatible with science." So says a spokesman for a conference - going on right now - sponsored by the Vatican-based Pontifical Gregorian University, entitled: Biological Evolution: Facts and Theories. Of course, the usual suspects are involved, the Templeton Fund - a group extremely hostile to Intelligent Design (ID)- whose primary dedication it seems is to promote a theological baptismal of Evolutionary Theory.

If, as the Vatican claims to believe, "the Heavens declare the glory of God and the Earth shows forth his handiwork", why would it be beyond the pale to admit even the scientific possibilities of ID among men of intelligence? And why is any criticism of the philosophical implications of Evolution seemingly off limits?

My only guess is that the Templeton folks are simply committed evolutionists who've finally found their ecclesiastical sellout - an institution that dreads being seen as scientifically unfashionable: the Roman Catholic Church. And for the RCC's part, it's as if they just want to curry favor with "Big Science" and have a hand in the making of the Novus Ordo Secularum. First you disinvite the Faithful. Then invite the Evolutionists over for dinner and say absolutely nothing to offend their sensibilities. That's super amazing grace right there. The Vatican's science and philosophy departments ought to be ashamed. Denying ID a place at the table of discussion virtually guarantees a conference devoid of scientific acknowledgement of a Creator. It virtually guarantees the conference will be a celebration of the triumph of Darwinism in all its forms over Faith, too. But alas Rome, in retreat, suggests otherwise.

Check out this juicy tidbit from the Vatican:

"A Christian can believe in the providential design of God in Creation, without transforming it into a “scientific theory” that competes with another one: these are definitely different levels of interpretation. However, this in turn requires that no scientific theory is placed as the ultimate explanation of reality, which would reduce it to a pseudo-metaphysics, or to a pseudo-religion – in any case, the opposite of science."

In other words, you may believe in God's design, just don't try to make it a scientific claim to knowledge. We just don't compete with Evolution.

This is not purely about seeking dogma and finding none - because that's not what this meeting is about. And to be sure, the Young Earth Creationists operate from a different playbook as everyone knows, but ID is - at the end of the day - a scientific redeclaration of the same views of Einstein, Newton, Pascal, Galileo, and many other titans of science who happen to believe in the awesome complexity of God's design. It is the voice of truth found in all of the complexity of the universe as we measure it and understand it. And I (and others) ask the RCC: WHAT IS TRUTH?

Vatican teaching holds that Roman Catholicism and evolutionary theory are not necessarily at odds. Okay. But let's not forget Tertullian's question: "What does Athens have to do with Jerusalem?" It raises the question of any ultimate compatibility between Faith with Science - because with "Big Science" the problem only gets worse for Jerusalem. It would be interesting to see if the Vatican folks remember this once the bamboozling gets underway at that conference.

As an evangelical Protestant, I often tell people to respect the intellectual rigor and tradition of Roman Catholicism, but to keep an eye on their uncanny ability to give away the biblical farm.

Remember Sola Scriptura!

Psalm 19:1-3The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.
Day to day utters speech, and night to night shows knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Psalm 139:6
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain to it.

Isa. 58:8-9
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, said the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
