Why Are Christians Hiding Their Eyes From The Truth?

It is good to see Planned Parenthood standing publicly as vulnerable and naked as the babies they murder. It’s good to watch as they get their pants pulled down below their knees. It is good to watch them try to wipe the crumbs off of the corners of their mouth as they have just been caught in the proverbial cookie jar.

Klanned Parenthood had been telling us for a generation that a “fetus” isn’t really alive. They tell us that it is just a blob of tissues that feels no pain. They tell us that murdering children is “health care,” as if killing a baby is healthy for either the baby or the mother. They tell us that ripping a baby apart is sometimes the most loving thing a mother could do.

Some wacko “Doctor” in Mississippi even told us that he was being “Jesus” to the women, as if killing a baby made in the image of God is a righteous and holy thing to do. They tell us that baby murder is merely a “difficult decision” between a woman and her doctor. They tell us that Jesus will forgive the mothers for choosing death rather than life for their defenseless unborn child.

They tell us that the Hippocratic Oath’s urging to “first do no harm” doesn’t apply to baby murders. They tell us that the baby will feel no pain as his/her little arms and legs are torn off. They tell us that anyone who stands up and fights for the life of these precious little babies is hateful and bigoted. They tell us that fighting to stop the war on unborn babies actually constitutes a war on women.

They call child sacrifice nice-sounding names: reproductive rights, choice, family planning. Even their name is a fraud—Planned Parenthood. Why would you go to Planned Parenthood to “plan” parenthood if you were already a parent? They tell us that you aren’t really a “parent” until the blob of tissue is born. But you are. You leave the “clinic” the parent of a dead child.

They tell us that it is our obligation for all of us to pay for the murder of babies, even if it violated our conscience. They tell us that they will make laws protecting “reproductive rights.” They tell us that we need to stay out of their wombs, even though they invite “doctors” to invade their wombs to dismember and suck out perfectly-formed human beings.

They lie when they tell us that men are not entitled to be part of the choice. They lie when they tell us that women will never regret killing their child. They tell us that it is simply a “medical procedure” like getting a tooth pulled, and that their lives will carry on as normal. They tell the women that they will never even think of their murdered baby as they watch other woman holding their precious children.

They never tell us about the economic impact on our nation brought about by the murder of 60 million little potential consumers. They never warn us that our children are our future and that we are killing the geese that lay the golden eggs. They never warn us that killing all of those little future taxpayers will only hasten the demise of Social Security. They never warn us that the Muslims will soon be out-producing us by a ratio of 4 to 1.

They fail to tell us that child-murder is genocide intended to reduce the number of black babies born in America. They never tell us that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger called black people “human weeds.” They never tell us that in 2015, the chances of a black child in New York being born were less than 50-50…more are aborted than are born. They never tell us that 78% of the babies murdered in NY are either black or Hispanic. They never tell us that the ghouls at Planned Parenthood intentionally target poor black-democrat areas of town in which to locate. They never tell us that black babies’ lives don’t matter. They never tell us that aborted black babies’ body parts are marketed in ways that would make AutoZone envious.

The politicians told us they were “pro-life” as they funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to the baby-Nazis. They passed restrictive laws designed to jail gentle Christians who knew and exposed what was going on behind the closed doors of the murder-mills. The “pro-family” organizations like Focus on the Family raised hundreds of millions of dollars to “fight” abortion by jumping in bed with “pro-life” legislators in a 43-year quasi-war against child-killing.

Our pulpits were silent with regard to the unborn. Oh, they might broach the subject on the annual “pro-life” Sunday; but they told us that baby-killing is a “political” issue and that they want to be careful not to “politicize” the pulpit. They tell post-abortive parents that Jesus will forgive them, while they do nothing to prevent such tragic heartaches from infesting unsuspecting young women who were taught that abortion would absolve them of their sin-borne “inconvenience.”

They tell us to vote Republican. They tell us not to judge. They tell us to obey the law. They tell us that to go to the clinics is “radical” and will only turn the women away from Jesus. They tell us that baby-murder is legal because the Judicial Taliban decreed it so.

They tell us to enjoy our “best life now.” They lecture us about the health and wealth benefits of being a Christian. They encourage us to bury our heads in the sand and ignore the cry to be our brother’s keeper. Child-slaughter continues only by the approval and consent of the church.

So now we’re supposed to be outraged that Planned Parenthood is selling aborted body parts. Every living being leaves behind a body when it dies—unborn babies are no different. What did we really think they were doing with the remains? Would you be upset if they simply ground them up in a garbage disposal? Would it upset you if they flushed the remains down the toilet like a pile of excrement? Would it bother you if they incinerated the parts in an oven? Isn’t murdering them enough to outrage you?

So now we know what is REALLY going on at Planned Predator. What are the odds it will be defunded? What are the odds that abortion will be criminalized? What are the odds that “pro-family organizations” will raise another $100 million to “regulate” child killing? What are the odds that “pro-life” organizations will simply circulate another petition designed to expand their databases?

If the baby inside a mommy’s womb is not a child, then why are the internal organs so in demand? Stop pretending that you don’t know the truth. Stop being so willfully ignorant.

Planned Parenthood is simply ISIS in the womb. Perhaps it is time to build a fence around the womb.

What If Christians Could Make A Difference Again?

2 Chronicles 7:14-15: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.  Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.”

The verse above is what is called a “conditional” promise. It is much like the deals you often make with your own children. “IF you mow the grass, THEN I will take you to get some ice cream.”

If/then statements—the Bible is full of them.

American Christianity has become so fatalistic. Evil is engulfing this nation so rapidly that it seems to have sucked all of the faith and life out of the church. It is as if we no longer believe that the Lord has the power to do anything about our problems. But what if He did? And what if His conditional promises were still in effect? What if the Lord is waiting for US to fulfill OUR part of the deal?

IF MY PEOPLE…

Today, that seems like such a big IF…

He made it pretty simple for us. He told us what our part of the bargain was, and we know that He is a Man of His Word.

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”– Numbers 23:19

Of course He is righteous. Of course God’s judgment is upon this nation. Of course our sin is a stench in the nostrils of a Holy God. Of course we don’t deserve any more mercy from Him.  But…

If my people will simply mow the yard…

What if God’s mercy really IS from everlasting to everlasting? Psalm 103:17

What if He really will never leave you nor forsake you? Hebrews 13:5

What if God’s eyes really do run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him? 2 Chronicles 16:9.

What if we remain in Him and His words remain in us, and whatever we ask will be given to us? John 15:7

What if I have access by faith into grace? Romans 5:2

What if my labor in the Lord really isn’t in vain? 1 Corinthians 15:58

What if God won’t forsake me nor have my children become beggars? Psalm 37:25

What if I truly may approach God with freedom and confidence? Ephesians 3:12

What if He really forgives and cleanses me as I confess my sins to Him? 1 John 1:9

What if He really is faithful in keeping all His promises? Jos 21:45.

What if He really does have the power and the will to fulfill His promises? Roms. 4:21

What if He really does forgive sins? 1 John 1:9

What if He is absolutely trustworthy? Heb 6:13-18.

What if all the promises of God in Him [are] yea, and in Him Amen? 2 Cor 1:20.

What if everything He had promised, He was able also to perform? Romans 4:21.

Ultimately, the marriage decision is in the hands of the Lord. Let’s appeal to heaven that He will move the heart of the king.

God’s hand of judgment has been stayed before. Let’s earnestly plead with Him to do it again.

IF MY PEOPLE…

It’s time to stop complaining and start obeying. Organize a prayer vigil in your own church. Gather your home Bible Study group. Cry out to God for forgiveness and mercy.

God is, and always has been, our only hope. Let’s appeal to heaven!

Would Jesus Officiate At A Homosexual Marriage?

Confusion is the ‘flavor of the day’. How else can you explain the fact that churches are capitulating to the concept that Christianity and Homo-Matrimony are somehow compatible?

The devil’s kids are highly skilled masters of confusion. In fact, the Scriptures tell us that Satan is “the author of confusion.” He doesn’t just practice and spread confusion; he is the one who comes up with the evil, crazy ideas.

It’s the same trick he used with Eve. All the devil did was question the authority of God, and that tiny seed of doubt he planted in the heart of Eve has led us to where we are today. “Did God REALLY say…?” That was the confusion and doubt that Satan planted in the heart of Eve.

The question “Did God REALLY say homosexuals cannot be married?” is the fiery dart that the enemy is using today. But the devil never answers the questions that he asks—he merely plants the seeds of doubt. Doubt leads to confusion, confusion makes you disoriented, and disorientation causes one to get off track.

Lost in all of the arguments swirling around today is the one question that would certainly put to rest all of the debate within the Christian world regarding “same-sex” marriage: Would Jesus officiate a homosexual wedding?

But again, that is not how this debate has been framed. The purpose from the beginning was to confuse Americans. That’s how the devil fights. We are warned “not to be ignorant of his devices,” but we choose to remain ignorant.

Jesus speaks the truth (actually, He IS The Truth), and the devil always questions the truth. Satan never forces you to agree with him; he merely dangles the apple and invites you to take a bite. What has happened in the marriage debate is nothing short of the age-old “bait and switch.”

You see, today the enemies of God are doing everything they can to get us to question God, His authority, His positions, and His nature. It’s the same trick that was used in the garden. The Bible tells us that there is “nothing new under the sun.” This spreading of confusion has always been one of Satan’s most effective weapons. Let me cite an example.

The decision before the U.S. Supreme Court today is whether or not they have the power to change the millennia-long institution of marriage. The fog machines are blowing and doing their best to shroud the issue in a cloud of doubt over what position Jesus would hold regarding homosexuals.

You can repeat the questions that are being asked as well as I can: “Should Christians hate homosexuals? Should Christians discriminate against homosexuals? Should Christians Judge homosexuals? Should Christians deny ‘equal rights’ to homosexuals?”

Well duh, the easy answer to all of those questions is NO…Jesus would love and accept the homosexual. But these are not the questions that are being asked today. These are not the questions that the Supreme Court is trying to decide for all of America. These are not the questions that our pastors should be asking today.

In fact, in an attempt to manufacture even more confusion, they insist that you question Jesus’ positions on the topic. “Didn’t Jesus eat with sinners? Didn’t Jesus say that it was the sick that needed a physician? Didn’t Jesus forgive the woman at the well? Didn’t Jesus say to love our neighbor? Would Jesus reject and discriminate against homosexuals? WWJD?”

In all honesty, however, the real question we should be asking is: “Would Jesus Unite Two Men in Marriage?” I believe the answer is very clear. If Jesus wouldn’t “marry” two men, why should any of his followers? Love homosexuals? Yes! Marry them? No way! WWJD?

Let’s go ahead and clear up a few things—marriage was the idea of Jesus’ Father. He is the one who defined it as a union between one man and one woman. Jesus told us that He came to fulfill the law, not do away with it. (Remember, I’m speaking to Christians here.) Can you tell me of one time in the entirety of the Scriptures when Jesus ever contradicted a position that His Daddy held?

But we’re confused. We want to change the institution of marriage so as not to appear “hateful” or “bigoted” or “intolerant” or “unloving” or “discriminatory” because, as they tell us, Jesus wasn’t any of those things.

Don’t you see the bait and switch? Elena Kagen, Ruth Ginsburg, and their gang of God-haters are not deciding on the nature of Jesus or the proper treatment of our fellow man. They are deciding whether or not the institution of marriage should be redefined.

Did God REALLY say…? Does God change His mind? Does Jesus have the power to override the authority and laws of His Father? Was God a “conservative” and Jesus a “liberal?”

Jesus said “My Father and I are one and the same.” “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

The question is not whether God loves everybody. It is not whether or not we have the right to marry the one we love. It is not whether or not Christians are “to judge.” The question is: are Christians supposed to reflect the very nature of God? If you ask the wrong question, you are sure to get the wrong answer. Answer this question and let all of the confusion fade away.

Would Jesus officiate a homosexual marriage?

A Court Decision Is No Law At All

All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.”  – Marbury v Madison 1803.

Repugnant – distasteful, offensive, disgusting. Contradictory, incompatible, inconsistent.

Null – without value, effect, consequence, or significance.

Void –  having no legal force or effect;  not legally binding or enforceable; useless, ineffectual, vain.

Therefore, all laws inconsistent with the Constitution are without value or effect and have no legal force or effect and are useless, ineffectual, and unenforceable.

Or, as Saint Augustine so aptly warned us, “an unjust law is no law at all.”

Let me ask you a question: If the government passed a law saying that parents had the right to kill their three-year-old sons, would that be a valid, just law? Would we be duty-bound to follow it?

If the government passed a law that said that workers were entitled to keep 10% of what they earned and that the rest was to be “withheld” by your employer and given to the government, would it be a valid law? What if they said you could keep 70% and the government got the rest? Where do we draw the line?

What if the “court” rules that a man had the legal right to marry his favorite animal? What if they told us that we could marry as many different species as we wanted? What if they told us that sex with 10-year-olds was “legal” and, in fact, some scumbag down the road had the right to “marry” your 10-year-old 5th grader without your approval? What if they declared that school principals were even allowed to conduct the ceremonies during school hours? Would that make it right?

Did you know that a “decision” or “opinion” by a court is not law? Congress makes laws. Courts render opinions. Opinions are…well…opinions. Judges give their opinions of what they think the law says.

For instance, the recent Obamacare “decision” from the Supreme Court was supported by five justices, while four justices had a dissenting “opinion.” How can an opinion be enforceable–especially an “opinion” so equally divided and strongly opposed?

In Alabama, 81% of the people voted that marriage is between one man and one woman. How can the “opinion” of five terrorists in black robes in Washington carry more weight than the “opinion” of millions of Alabama voters?

President Andrew Jackson, in a shot across the bow regarding a Supreme Court ruling in 1832, famously said: “John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it.” President Jackson ignored the decision that the Supreme Court handed down.

Sorry, I know that I am all over the place with this communication–so let me try to bring it together.

The United States is veering aimlessly off course because we have lost control of our government. This has happened partly because we have ceded to the courts lawmaking powers that they were simply not intended to possess.

A COURT DECISION IS NOT A LAW!! Do you understand that? Roe v Wade is NOT the law of the land. Roe v Wade was an OPINION handed down by judges. Judges and courts do not make laws, but rather merely render opinions.

Did you know that the Supreme Court once rendered the opinion that black men were inferior to whites? Did you know that the Supreme Court once ruled that women had no legal right to vote? Did you know that as recently as 1986, the Supreme Court ruled that there was no right to homosexual sodomy?

Friends, courts only offer opinions. Opinions can change when judges change. The law cannot be changed by a “judge.” If that were the case, our “laws” would be as constantly changing as the “judges” are.

If “judges” ruled that sodomy was illegal in 1986, how did sodomy become “legal” today? Did the law change, or did the “opinions” of the “judges” change?

Here is my point: All the hubbub over homosexual marriage is a cleverly-designed smoke screen. Who cares what the Supreme Court says? They are merely rendering their “opinion.” The people of Alabama and 30 other states have already spoken on this issue. No court “opinion” can nullify the vote of the people. Did anyone vote to give Kagan, Sotomayor, and Ginsburg the power to change the institution of marriage? I don’t think so, Tim!

Who do they think they are? No wait…who do WE think they are?  Do you REALLY believe that the opinions of five political hacks on the Supreme Court trump the will of 81% of the citizens in Alabama? I think not. At some point, this is gonna get ugly…and I believe we are nearing that point.

The right to get “married” based solely on who one chooses to copulate with is one of the most short-sighted “opinions” in the history of the world. Liberty is not licentiousness. You have no God-given right to do that which is wrong.

Homosexual marriage is not now, nor will it ever be, “legal” in America. You know it, I know it, and heck, even the homosexuals know it. They don’t want to get married…they just want to destroy marriage.

At some point, if we are to remain free, we are going to have to cast off the chains of government. That’s what our forefathers did. That is what they told us we would have to do.

Jefferson told us “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”  What do you suppose he meant by that?

“Are you proposing violence, Coach Dave?” I hear you asking. Of course not. What a foolish assumption to make. I am, however, proposing resolute, peaceful resistance. I am proposing open defiance against the tyrannical arm of government. I am proposing that Christians obey God rather than man.

Metaphorically speaking, Montgomery, Alabama, will be the Gettysburg of Gay Marriage after the Supreme Court hands down their tyrannical “opinion” in defiance of the will of the people of Alabama and in direct conflict with the Supreme Court Justice of the Universe.

The question is, what will the people of America do? Will they obediently acquiesce to the un-Constitutional edicts of the homsexualists on the Supreme Court? Or will they, as their forefathers did, stand in open defiance to a tyrannical, over-reaching, amoral Federal Government?

I am reminded of a monument that you will find commemorating what took place at Lexington, Massachusetts, on April 19, 1775. Carved into stone are these immortal words of Captain John Parker, the lead elder at the assembly of Pastor Jonas Clark, who ordered the men from his congregation to rise and resist the Redcoats:

“Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

Not one of our key “cultural” issues has ever been changed by a vote of the people. Abortion, marriage, prayer in schools, sodomy laws, free speech…they’ve all been “changed” by “court opinions.”

In summary, courts offer opinions. Legislatures and we the people make the laws. Supreme Court decisions are not laws—they simply tell us that they are.

Defy them! Nullify them! Tell the Supreme Court to go pound sand!

Get Off Of The Couch And Fight, Christians…It’s Our Turn Now!

I never served in the military. I grew up in the turbulent 60’s amidst the Vietnam War, the shootings at Kent State, the murders of King and Kennedy, and the “God is dead” declaration made by the LSD-ravaged minds of the ideological left. I salute all of my generation who served.

Many of you watched your friends die in the rice paddies of Southeast Asia. They were just kids, really: eighteen year old rascals who loved their Chevy, their girlfriend, and their country.  As the familiar phrase goes, “All gave some…some gave all.”

I am reminded this morning of the song made popular by Steven Curtis Chapman, “It’s My Turn Now.” Listen here:

Open up the book and look again. I read the stories of the faithful men
Who gave up all they had to follow Him

He used the strong and he used the weak. And He even gave the timid words to speak
He called whoever listened then.  And now His call goes out again

And it’s my turn now.  Well, it’s my turn now.
‘Cause it’s my turn to give my life away.

Yep, it’s my turn now.

My wife Michele and I just had the honor and privilege of witnessing the birth of our baby’s baby, one of the next generation of Christians in America. I left the hospital with an overwhelming sense of duty. That’s right…DUTY!

With all of the talk flying around America today about “liberty” and “freedom”, “rights” and “tyranny”, when was the last time you heard a sermon on DUTY?

Look folks, as much as I have a hard time coming to grips with it, I am steadily moving into the category of “senior citizen.” I don’t FEEL old enough to be a Grampie—in my mind, I’m still 30. But the harsh reality is that I have a responsibility to pass the torch to my posterity.

It is what my father did for me, and his father before him. Something was so deeply rooted in their psyches that it instilled in them the duty to do a tag-team handoff to the next generation as the Preamble to our Constitution so eloquently states, “…to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity…”

But somewhere along the way, my generation stopped thinking about future generations and fell into the trappings of narcissistic apathy that this nation has come to embrace. “As long as there is peace in my time…” What a sad state of affairs…and a poor reflection of today’s Christian man.

Let me ask you a question. What kind of Grandpa doesn’t fight for his grandchildren? What type of parent places his own safety and security above that of his children and grandchildren? What Grandfather travels America in a motor home while domestic enemies steal the very future of those whom he purports to love?

What kind of Grampie hands off a nation defiled by overt fornication and debauchery or quietly acquiesces to the tyrannical dictates of a godless government? What kind of grandparent turns a blind eye as children are being torn asunder in the warm sanctuary of a mother’s womb or rests comfortably on the couch as the foundation of Western Civilization, the family, is redefined in order to accommodate with whom or what an individual chooses to have orgasms?

What kind of grandparent permits his progeny’s financial future to be auctioned off to a cabal of satanic bankers? How can we remain silent as the very God who created us is shoved into the closet and out of the minds of the children we profess to love?

Are you watching? Do you see the immorality playing out on the streets of Baltimore? Are you oblivious to the filth emanating from the one-eyed monster sitting in your living room? Will you continue to tolerate the lying and thieving of those who are sworn to “protect and defend the Constitution” and the Cross-less Christianity spewing forth from America’s pulpits?

Is this what our fathers and grandfathers died for? Did the men at Lexington, Gettysburg, Omaha Beach, or those in Vietnam die so that a man could marry a man, or so that an unborn baby could be dismembered in his mother’s womb? Did they give their all so that their grandchildren might be ‘enlightened’ by the ‘virtues’ of Allah in their “public” schools?

You may not see things the same way that I do, but I believe that the entire foundation of Western Civilization is on the line and will be over the next couple of years. If we fail to act NOW, our grandbabies will live in slavery…if they even survive at all.

I see it as that critical…that urgent…that utterly diabolical.

We have formed the SALT and LIGHT Brigade. There is a role for every God-fearing American on this team.

I’m not one typically given to begging; but if that’s what it will take to restore righteousness to our nation, I will! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, my precious granddaughter and countless others are counting on us. What are you afraid of? Join with us TODAY!!

Is there not a cause? Get off of the couch and fight!! It’s our turn now!!!
