The Judas Factor

Judas, moneybag in hand, at the Last Supper

The border crisis has created an anomaly in my thought process. I find myself in the peculiar and rare position of agreeing with Mr. Obama: a humanitarian crisis does exist at our southern border. In truth, I find it hard to look at the faces of all those young children and not feel compassion for their plight. It is the opinion of this writer that they are innocent victims being used to further blur the borders of these United States, thereby creating crisis of all kinds and manners for the purpose of ____well, I’ll leave it to the reader’s discretion to fill in the blank. Of course not all of those crossing illegally are children, some are gang members and it is also assumed that many may be Al Qaeda or other terrorist group members seizing the opportunity to enter the country easily and without documentation.

‘Christian’ leaders and truth

The Ten Commandments: antidote to communist ideology

 

There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough – a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice – which costs nothing, and is worth nothing.

– J. C. Ryle

Christians as hypocrites

The Geneva Bible. Are we in a silent war against what this book represents?

 

Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.

– Billy Sunday

I remember when I first became part of the family of God in Jesus Christ about 20 years ago. On several occasions while attending church services, there would be people who would share their testimonies where a good half hour would be spent on magnifying how sinful, evil and bad they were with a smirk on their faces, while one or two minutes would be spent on emphasizing on how good God was by saving them through Jesus Christ. I also noticed that in many cases these storytellers were the first ones to play the hypocrite outside of the congregation’s eye. One day they would be in front of a church giving their testimonies, and the next they were out doing the same things they proclaimed they were delivered from. The furthest thing from their professed walk in Christ was Christ Himself. The fruit of Jesus was M.I.A. when it came to their walk.

Spitting toward heaven

Jeroboam spit toward heaven. Remember where that got him.

Last week we witnessed four denominations emboldened by this criminal, “sodomite-advocating” administration, joining the ranks of the apostate in America. Namely, the United Church of Christ (that claims 1 million members with about 5,200 congregations), the Presbyterian Church USA, the Moravians, who voted to ordain gay clergy, as well as the Pentecostal Church International (1 Timothy 4:1).

Cycle of tyrants and nations

Benito Mussolini in Yugoslavia

 

God, if you are there, strike me dead!

– Italian dictator Benito Mussolini

Many years later God did accommodate when the tyrant Mussolini and his mistress were condemned to death. Mussolini said, “Let me save my life and I will give you an empire!” then began shouting “No, No.” They were both executed along with main members of his cabinet on April 29, 1945. Their bodies were savagely beaten then hung upside down at an Esso gas station in the Plazzale Loreto in Milan.

Common Core and Sodom

Common Core puts a worm into this apple.

Last year I wrote an article entitled “Resurrecting Sodom.” In it I chronicled seven events in our nation’s history that I believed were leading us down a path that would end at Sodom’s front door. The advent of Common Core State Standards has made it advisable to revisit this subject.

Metropalistan Opera

A jihad opera about the Achille Lauro atrocity will still go on at last report.

Canceling the simulcast of The Death of Klinghoffer does not exculpate any of the personnel affiliated with the opera if the show will be presented on stage as scheduled. Because Peter Gelb acknowledged the “genuine concern in the international Jewish community,” he is not oblivious to the impropriety. Yet he continues unimpeded. He may well be an active partner to the insult, an accomplice to Alice Goodman’s rejection of their mutual heritage. Or he lacks the capacity to see that this production should also be of enormous concern to the greater American community. It would appear that this may well rank with the Bavarian Oberammergau that continues to inspire antisemitism – but not only antisemitism. This perverted story is an act of jihad.

God – Libertarian?

The Ten Commandments: antidote to communist ideology

I have recently been promoting a D.C. rally supporting traditional marriage. It raised several good questions from someone I love dearly. My answers may have seemed conflicted – or worse, hypocritical – but they were not. I believe everyone has a right to live their lives as they see fit. I also believe that no one has the right to impose their beliefs upon me, the church, or any other person or entity. To complicate matters more, I believe there is a right and there is a wrong way to live. These points of view can be hard to reconcile for many but not if processed through a biblical worldview.

Pope Francis and his fruits

Pope Francis forgot to mention the Vatican walls

The security barrier certainly causes much contention. Despite the enormous length and breadth of China’s Great Wall, Israel’s protective shield is more debated. Although Saudi Arabia’s $700 million electrified wall is grander, Israel’s is more maligned. Thailand’s 75 km barrier with Malaysia was also constructed to protect against Muslims, yet Israel’s is more vilified. Even though more walls exist in the UK to separate Protestants from Catholics, Pope Francis Xavier finds Israel’s more attention-worthy. Neither does this pope mention the massive walls around the Vatican, yet the surrounding Italians are peaceful, charming and friendly.

Hollywood: deadly values

The Hollywood Sign

Two days ago, America got a deadly demonstration of Hollywood values, and what they can do to people. But most people won’t think of that. They should.
