Man Fired For Sharing His Faith!

It began as a normal day for Chris Routson as he prepared to go to work, until he received a phone call instructing him to come in a few hours later than normal. Chris worked at the Middletown, Ohio, Precision Strip metal processing plant for 13 years with a good employment standing.

Four years ago, he came to faith in Jesus Christ and began eagerly sharing his new-found faith with everyone, including his co-workers. One way he did that was through Facebook. One fellow employee he shared with was what Romans 1 calls a woman of vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

What he shared with her was Ray Comforts latest film Audacity, which shows that many Christians love homosexual individuals despite not agreeing with their life choices. When Chris arrived at work that day, he was directed to go to the managers office. On August 27, Routson was told that his employment was being terminated because he made co-workers feel uncomfortable. He was given no severance pay and denied unemployment.  

“They said, ‘Someone said you didn’t make them feel comfortable.’ I said, ‘I sent out a video to share the Gospel just because it talks about homosexuality.’ They said, ‘You can’t do that. You can’t do that,’” explained Routson. “So, I said ‘I was just trying to share my faith with her and it doesn’t matter that I didn’t have a chance to work with her, I can share a link on Facebook on my own time right?’ They are like, ‘No, no, you can’t do that. You can’t be sharing with people on Facebook because they work here.’”

“They were saying that I can’t do that, but I have never seen anything that says I couldn’t,” Routson asserted.

“If you are put in a situation where you are going to be fired or you are going to be persecuted for your faith, never give into the fear of man, always fear the Lord,” Routson said. “No matter what happens, trust the outcome to God rather than trying to think about how we can stop it from happening.”  

This is all about persecution of Christians, punishing Christians who truly live out their faith in Christ, Christians who take the commands of Christ seriously. We live in a day when the contrast between liberty and tyranny is exploding in our faces. But many are confused about these issues and what we as followers of Jesus Christ are to do in the midst of this destruction of true liberty.

Blessings found in the Perfect Law of Liberty – James 1:22-25, But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.


Now, our day rejects this doctrine outright. The propagandists of our day claim that law is somehow the opposite of liberty, and that you cant have a perfect law of liberty. In other words, they define liberty as a license to do whatever it is you want to do. That is actually not liberty, but anarchy.

If Men Are Animals Then Planned Parenthood Makes Sense

The internet is truly a strange place. Two online tactics are shaming and flaming. These techniques are used to destroy reputations, destroy livelihoods and even to destroy lives. Just ask the dentist Walter Palmer who has now received numerous death threats.

You’ll recall he was the lion hunter that accidentally killed Cecil the lion. I say accidentally because he paid handsomely for a local guide whose job it was to keep him from taking any illegal shots at any protected animals. So the real accusations should be against the lion hunting guide whose name oddly enough we do not even know. Instead the dentist is vilified. As the death threats against Palmer pour in, he has been forced to shutter his dentistry practice and has essentially gone into hiding as a raving mob calls for his blood.

What’s wrong with this picture? I find it more than coincidental that just before the Cecil the lion story broke, the revelations had begun to unfold that Planned Parenthood was deep in the business of selling baby body parts after they finish butchering the babies in their abortuaries. Did you notice that Cecil the lion story quickly overtook and completely buried the Planned Parenthood scandal even though those videos have continued to come forth every week for the last eight weeks?

In the main stream media there is hardly a peep about the scandal of Planned Parenthood. Cecil the lion is big news, but the horrors of Planned Parenthood are so hidden you would not even knew it took place were it not for the alternative media.

A victory for free speech in California ensured that the Center for Medical Progress could release its latest video this week with even more incriminating evidence against Planned Parenthood and a company that buys baby parts from them, StemExpress. The realities of what happens every day in abortion facilities at the hands of those who have no respect for the dignity of life is shocking. Thankfully, the judge lifted a temporary restraining order on video footage of a meeting with the CEO of StemExpress. Her cavalier attitude toward “harvesting” baby parts, and even intact babies, underscores the barbarism of Planned Parenthood’s grisly business.

Whether it’s the CEO’s request of “another fifty livers a week,” or her mockery of the horrified responses of lab technicians who open packages of intact babies, it is no wonder StemExpress wanted this footage kept from the public. The CEO implicitly contradicts Planned Parenthood’s facade of caring about women’s health: “Planned Parenthood has volume,” she says, “because they are a volume institution.” Most people, she adds, “don’t want to know where it comes from.” But “we know what it is.”

America is beginning to wake up to the horror of abortion, in which babies are regularly torn apart, or even being “harvested” intact. We’re seeing the evidence that babies may even be delivered alive before being cut up for their most profitable body parts.” (FRC)

On the same day that Cecil the lion died in Africa, in America more than three thousand innocent babies were tortuously torn limb from limb in their mother’s womb. Indeed the most dangerous address in America today is the womb of your own mother. I think it is clear that the narrative of the main stream media could be summarized with this: ‘save the lions, butcher and kill the baby humans.’

How have we come to this cruel state in America? It is because a revolution has taken place in the minds of far too many. It is a revolution centered on the answer to one seemingly simple question and that is this ‘what is man?’ The answer to this question makes a world of difference. The Bible clearly answers this question in the very first chapter of the Bible.

Created in the Image of God – Genesis 1:26-28:

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Man is distinct from all other beings God created. Man is not simply just another animal on earth. Only when we realize this reality will every human life receive the respect they deserve.

Seceding From Sodom

This past weekend, we attended my nephew’s wedding in the mountains west of Wenatchee, Washington. It was a beautiful mountain setting, but that outside ceremony was intensely hot. As we departed and descended the mountain, I could smell smoke. I didn’t see any fire burning; but for mile after mile, I smelled the smoke.

I commented to Cherelyn several times about the pervasive smell of smoke–not like one single campfire, but a different odor of smoke, something you smell when you come upon an area where there has been a recent forest fire. Little did I know that as we drove across that State, my brother and his family–as they returned to their home that night in Wenatchee where we had been staying prior to the wedding–returned to a crisis. The fires descended from the hills; and on Sunday, they were given just a few moments to grab anything they could from their home as they evacuated in the face of the advancing flames.

In the twenty-plus years my brother has lived there, there have been other wildfires that came close; but this was the first time they were forced to abandon their home. They took refuge in their church further in town away from the danger zone. Providentially, his home was not one of the two-dozen that were consumed by the fires that claimed 30 square miles of Washington State. As for my family, we escaped just ahead of the fires, smelling smoke but not fully realizing what was happening behind us as we traveled eastward. We only became aware of what had happened when we saw the weather report highlighting the fires.

The old saying is certainly true: where there is smoke, there is fire.

I was thinking about all that is happening in our land today. The Supremes engaged in infantile wishful thinking. They essentially declared that words have no meaning in law. Law is whatever they say it is, and you’d better comply or else! So let’s get this straight: laws no longer mean what they say? Yes, you heard correctly; that’s what they said. Laws mean whatever they wish them to mean; words only mean whatever the imaginations of five black-robed lawyers want them to mean.

I don’t know about you; but in America today, I smell smoke. It comes in advance of the fire, and the fire is very real. Those who specialize in imagining that reality is what they like to think it is pretend they don’t smell that smoke. But where there is smoke, there is fire. And this isn’t some wildfire that consumes a couple dozen family homes; this is a fire like that experienced in the towns of Gomorra and Sodom, a total fire of devastation leaving nothing behind.

Turn to Genesis 19:1-11:

“And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.”

Notice that Lot is a judicial leader in Sodom; he is one of the city’s judges. Court was held at the city gate; and when it says that “Lot sat in the gate of Sodom,” it indicates that he was a judicial officer of the city. In that position at the city gate, he would see those coming and going in and out of the city. So he, it appears, noticed the two angels, who were hiding their glory and appearing as mere men when they came into Sodom. He knew the wickedness of this city, and he knew these strangers would not be safe from the Sodomites were they to “abide in the street all night” as they proposed to do.

Here is some real advice. Pastors – no more marriage licenses from the State. That thing the civil government calls marriage is not marriage at all; it is a fraud, a sham, a lie. No Christian should marry under a marriage license.  Families – take back jurisdiction over marriage, education, property ownership. Build up strong marriages which will be an undeniable testimony as fake marriages will never work, and real marriages not founded on Jesus Christ will falter because there are only two sinners who are there to make it work.

Is External Terrorism Really The Biggest Threat To Our Security?

Photo credit:

We were told last week that the greatest threat to our well-being today is some new Mohamedean group ISIS, which is ravaging the Middle East. We have also been advised that the best security is for us to go to war against this new threat. So last Wednesday, the impostor essentially declared war against ISIS.

We have been told that we will lead a sustained bombing campaign against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria. Administration officials acknowledge that this could last several years. The impostor requested Congressional approval for hundreds of millions of dollars to train and equip “moderate” Syrian rebels; and although he promised no boots on the ground, he actually committed to send U.S. troops to “advise” Iraqi security forces. How is that no boots on the ground? He made all kinds of promises in that speech that I consider doubtful of fulfillment given his record of mendacity.

It seems to me that the same old song and dance is being played before us as we are being told our greatest security lies in fomenting another war with another group of people half way around the world. Is that really the case? Is the greatest threat to our security another group of idolaters who worship the moon? You heard correctly: Allah is the moon idol, the only one Mohamed preserved of the 300-plus idols of Mecca. That is why the crescent moon is their symbol.

I contend that the greatest threat to our security is not these idolaters who worship the moon idol; it is the One True God. The great concern with external terrorism is a slight of hand. There is a greater threat from within, a terror threat resulting from our assault against a Holy and Omnipotent God, the Only One True God, the God of the Bible. We are witnessing the rapid deterioration of a nation before our very eyes. We have become one nation against God, rather than one nation under God.

Our good friend, Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Roy Moore, wrote: “While truth and law were founded on the God of all creation, man now, through law, denies the truth and calls it ‘separation.’ No longer does man see a need for God when he’s in full control, for the only truth self-evident is in the latest poll. But with man as his own master we fail to count the cost, our precious freedoms vanish and our liberty is lost. Children are told they can’t pray in school and they teach them evolution, when will they see the fear of God is the only true solution?”

The roots of the demise in America lie in our understanding and belief about the One True God. A loss of understanding of His Greatness, His Power, and above all His Holiness is at the bottom of what has gone wrong with America.  That fact alone presents the greatest threat to our security and our liberty.

John Brown, Nineteenth-century Scottish theologian, said that “Holiness does not consist in mystic speculations, enthusiastic fervors, or uncommanded austerities; it consists in thinking as God thinks, and willing as God wills.”* In other words, it means to have a Biblical worldview, especially in what we understand about the One True God.  Now this encounter of the Children of Israel with God at Mount Sinai has a practical message for us.

Rethinking Citizenship

Immigrant Tuition

Perhaps you remember as I do a tradition of immigration to this land. My first ancestors came to these shores in the first waves of migration following the deluge.  They ultimately became known as the Penobscot Indians. Then those bearing my surname came here in 1635 Anno Domini. I am the descendant of immigrants.

Here in this land, there is no one who can claim to be original.  We are all descendants of immigrants to these shores. But I recall hearing about the immigrants that came through Ellis Island.  They wanted to learn English. They wanted to breathe free. They wanted to become Americans and did not want to make America in the image of the decrepit land they were leaving.

Now it appears too many immigrants come here with demands.  They demand a handout, a welfare check, free medical care, and government housing. They demand to be taught in their own language. They demand special privileges such as affirmative action. They demand ethnic studies that glorify their culture. In fact, they even go further. Consider this statement made by Augustin Cebada of the Brown Berets de Aztlán, a paramilitary offshoot of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA), delivered during a Fourth of July rally held outside the Federal Building in Westwood, California, in 1996: “Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die. Even their own ethicists say that they should die; that they have a duty to die. They’re taking up too much space, too much air…. Through love of having children, we are going to take over.” That statement was made 18 years ago.

The question of immigration is a very real and very volatile one. As Disciples of Jesus Christ, we cannot respond to this question by following whatever might be popular, or considered politically correct, or even where our own desires might lead us; we must follow the commands of God’s Word. Jesus taught us in Mark 12:31 “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”

Here is the important principle we saw last week.  Because there is only One True God, there is only One True Law. That Law is therefore universal; it applies to all humans no matter what his condition.  So those outside the Covenant are not committed to the legal system of the One True God. Nonetheless, that legal system is just, righteous, and true; and therefore, it applies to them whether they like it or not. Let us continue from last week’s study by turning to Exodus 12:49, which provides: “One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.”

Strangers in the land do not have the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship. Here is where I think we have the hardest time given our indoctrination in the unbiblical ideas of civil government in our day. Basically, most Americans believe that if you can put a mirror to the nose of an individual over the age of 18, and they can fog the glass, then they should be allowed to vote. But why do we believe that? Just consider what that means today.

As a country, we are at that tipping point.  More people are taking from the system than producing. That is a sure recipe for disaster. Currently, I understand some 47% of American households receive some form of welfare.  If those persons are allowed to vote, what will happen?  Welfare recipients vote more money for themselves, and you see the plundering of the productive work force take place.

Loving thy neighbor means protecting their God-given rights as Exodus 12:49 commands. That means preserving the structure of civil government from all who would pervert the civil government into an agency of legalized plunder, whereby the God-given rights of no one would be safe and secure. This means, as we have seen in the commands of Scripture, that we restrict citizenship to those who, because they are committed to the Covenant of Disciples of Jesus Christ, are willing to submit themselves to serve in the roles of responsibility in choosing leaders who will preserve God ordained order.  Those who will serve as Jurors, committed to do justice in judging the law by the eternal standard of God’s Law.  Those who will serve when called up as Representatives to serve in civil government to do justice by God’s Law, and those who will put themselves in harms way serving in the Militia – only in just wars as defined by God’s Law.
