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.

Evil falls before the fearless

Bradlee Dean discusses what poverty in America often looks like.

Imagine with me for a moment if George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson never existed. Imagine history without Abraham, Moses, King David or the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Where would we be if these men did not exhibit leadership with courage and sacrifice on the behalf of the people? Where would we be if they had not loved both seen and unseen, resulting in now having both natural and spiritual freedoms throughout the world? I can tell you, we would all be slaves to tyranny in every form (Hebrews 11)!

Bradlee Dean discusses what poverty in America often looks like.

There’s something about America’s stubborn sense of independence and strong families that forms the bedrock of greatness in this country. The rest of the world does not produce the Thomas Edisons, Bill Gates, or Steve Jobs of the world.
