Are You Guilty Of Being A Real Leader?

“Real leaders are not called to lead up consensus they are to mold consensus, and without a doubt, this will create enemies.”

When you see a leader taking a stand and, as a result, his life is threatened, he gets dumped by his sponsors, he is condemned by the establishment “politicians,” and he is taken out of context by the state-controlled media, you have to understand that he is not one who is going along to get along, but rather is a genuine leader. This, in many cases, is the identifying characteristic when it comes to what a leader looks and acts like. And real leaders are what is needed in America (Rev. 5:5).

What is a leader? Often, when making a new contact, I will first vet them before allying myself (Amos 3:3). After all, there is a huge difference between a public person and a leader.

For example, I had a very well-known preacher come to stay out at my place; but before having him come out, I went and vetted him to see what his enemies were saying of him (John 15:17-18). Lo and behold, I discovered he had many unlawful and un-American enemies attacking his ministry. He was leading, not asking permission to do so. At every turn, he seemed to be in trouble for standing up for righteousness and the laws of our republic (Matthew 5:10; Luke 6:22-26).

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

In contrast, how many of today’s self-positioned leaders, regardless if they are preachers, patriots, or conservatives, are as worthless as the ones they complain about? After all, they have a reputation to keep up (Philippians 2:7-9). They go along to get along. They don’t offend anyone because they do not stand for anything; and if they were to have enemies, someone might think ill of them for actually taking a stand for what is right. Of course, they cannot have that (Gal. 6:12).

In the conservative movement (today’s conservatives are yesterday’s liberals), for example, you have a bunch of men who are no more than paper tigers. They play the politically correct game as long as it is safe enough for them to hide behind their computers and get away with whatever it is they write. Because they live under a false pretense, they are too spineless to actually fight for what they say they love (2 Timothy 4:7; Jude 1:3).

As a matter of fact, when it comes to the fight–which is the furthest thing from their minds–they say: “Let someone else do the fighting,” demonstrating their lack of integrity. They love their country so much that their degree of sacrifice is going to another fruitless conference to be seen and to talk. Of course, it goes no further than talk (Matthew 15:8).

They hide behind a title, watching the game of life and telling everyone how they are to live their lives, but not applying it to themselves (Jeremiah 9:3; Malachi 2:2). Hypocrites!

Search out your favorite patriot, preacher, or conservative and see what they stand for. If there is no opposition, it means they are not standing.

What of the women? I am not here talking about the women who are laying it down, doing what the men ought to be doing. I high-five these brave and classy women such as Pamela Geller, Brigitte Gabriel, Katherine Albrecht, and others.

I am talking of the conservative women, which you can find everywhere except where they ought to be, and with someone else except who they ought to be with. These conservative women act like little 15-year-old cheerleaders who did not get their fill of attention in high school. Now they have brought it into adulthood. To them, the fight for liberty is some sort of fashion show fantasy. The sad fact is that everyone sees them for who they are; and that is “little, immature, snotty girls” who never grew up mentally, but are trapped in the body of 50 or 60-year-old woman.

These women love the limelight so much that everything is sacrificed, including their families. This is all for the opportunity to be seen by men (Matthew 23:5). They love their titles too and don’t forget to add them to their names when they are out in public. Apparently, these women do not have the right people around them who actually love them enough to tell them to grow up and raise their families (Titus 2:4-5).

Do a search on these worldlings, and you will find nothing that proves the contrary to what I am saying.

Herein lies the problem with the America we know. These people profess to be one thing. Yet, in reality, they are the opposite. They are no different than what they complain about (1 Kings 18:21). In short, these people are the problem (Philippians 3:18). They contend that they want peace in a world that is at war with what they profess to believe in, but they do not go to war to have it set right (John 16:33).

These self-positioned leaders fail to understand that men follow courage and not titles (Mark 8:27). They believe that it is their position to be served rather than being the ones who are to serve (Luke 22:27).

The History Of Evil – Planned Parenthood Writes A New Page

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Mark 21: 25-26)

This verse, taken from the gospel of Mark, has nothing to do with the last day’s wave of heart attacks; but rather it is a prophetic picture of the collective fainting of the hearts of men at the sudden, deep, and wholly unexpected changes that are rolling into human history.

This week, America is reeling from the videos in which officials from Planned Parenthood are negotiating the going price for the organs of unborn babies. We are witnessing something far more sinister than the ancient pagan world’s excursion into the offering of children to be burned in the fires of the idol known as Molech.

Today’s version of the “fires of Molech” is more sadistic and wicked than the ancients could have imagined, because it is now done under the cover of “law.” One man out of a band of nine cast the deciding vote for Roe v. Wade in 1973; and since then, the waves of unborn children have met their doom to the grand figure of 55 million and counting. This is the “law”? If Molech were actually a real and living deity – he would be delighted.

The rest of the world’s nations mandate abortions out of fear (overpopulation), but they are no slouches in honoring the idol of Molech. In China, it is reported that upwards of 336 million abortions have been performed since 1971. The latest twist from the orient is reportedly eating the remains of aborted babies in a soup which is thought to rejuvenate youthfulness in those who practice this kind of cannibalism.

Moderns think they have by means of consensus science arrived at the place where all superstitious allusions to God, gods, and deities have been properly abandoned, but have not noticed that they have thrown the baby out with the wash.

They scoff at intelligent design while scraping through the dirt of their archaeological digs with fine camel hair brushes and high expectations that they may at last uncover one of the millions of missing links for the species we now know as the human genus. Undaunted, they are willing to cling to the few remains, all of which have fallen into repute and total about 12 (depending on which scientist you ask) to answer the question of origins for an entire generation.

Even those who do not believe in God are beginning to ask if the camel hair brushes would not be more useful in brushing away the little mounds of dirt in the human psyche–not in search of an intelligent designer, but for intelligence itself.

Have Godliness and true wisdom now become fossils?

We can imagine the Apostle Paul kneeling in prayer and peering far ahead into the prophetic cloud of the will and counsel of God, only to turn and write of this generation in these most unflattering terms.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” (2 Tim 3: 1) After this, Paul concludes that the last day’s generation will be…“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Tim 3: 7)

Now, it seems that the political class is all wound up over which conservative candidate for president will come and sweep away the entire moral decline with his pen and cellphone.

I like the Donald too; but what makes us think that a loudmouth rich man, whose greatest accomplishments are the acquisition of gleaming skyscrapers and the parade of half-nude women in a pageant, is the most likely one to lead, change, and even save a nation from its own complete demise? Has statesmanship also passed into memory with only a fossil record to attest that it once was? More camel hair brushes needed here.

The best the Donald has offered if elected president is to support a congressional bill referred to as the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which would prohibit all abortions after 20 weeks except in cases of medical emergency. Not even 10 billion dollars seems enough to wake up the Donald to the simple biological fact that at only a few weeks into the growth of a fetus, you have a human being –nd no law of man will ever change that. Thanks for the compromise, but it will not suffice in the Day of Judgment.

Hidden under the mounds of dirt called ‘politically correct speech’ and ‘cultural diversity’ can be found the fossils of human wisdom and better judgment. Let’s dig there – because political correctness, compromise, and election rhetoric are lousy substitutes for a real conscience.

No one, including Donald Trump–who is not willing to make a full frontal attack against all abortion and perverted same sex marriage–is any more than a paper tiger vying for our votes based on a better deal than Barack Obama. America needs more than a substitute for Obama; we need a first-class statesman with a full blown conscience.

This article would not be complete if I did not show the reader that the Apostle Mark’s dire warning that the hearts of men would fail is appendaged with what radio commentator Paul Harvey used to call “the rest of the story.”

We don’t know which politician will be inaugurated as our next president, but we do know who will come in last to become the first for all eternity.

Planned Parenthood may be writing a new page in the history of evil, but we know exactly who will write the last page of human history and bring in the long-awaited correction to the misrule of men.

“And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Mark 21: 27-28)

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.

Talk About Preventing Parenthood And Selling Baby Parts

The selling of aborted baby body parts has been going on for years, but has only recently been exposed. If this is not evidence enough our consciences have been seared, I’m not sure what else it will take to wake people up. There is a cost to our silence, and we are seeing manifestations of virtually unchecked evil throughout our culture.

Are we in denial? Are we too busy to do anything, too distracted to notice, or too complacent to care about the avalanche of immorality permeating our nation? Perhaps some of us – thinking we cannot do anything about it – simply choose to look the other way.

A second shocking video has just been released showing a top Planned Parenthood official discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. The first video shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

Abortion is not about women’s health; it is about a selfish, warped worldview that exalts man above God. We must de-fund this evil as we work to raise awareness about the truth and anguish of abortion. So far, two videos have now emerged proving Planned Parenthood endorses this practice.

In the latest video, Mary Gatter, a senior official within Planned Parenthood and President of the Medical Directors’ Council, discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts.

The question must be asked: if Planned Parenthood and most pro-abortion Democrats insist that a fetus is just “tissue” or “a clump of cells” inside a potential mother’s womb during pregnancy, why are they selling a baby’s heart, liver, or lungs? We should be sickened, but certainly not surprised, by this agenda that justifies the murder of the unborn under the guise of “choice.”

Describing how they crush an unborn baby’s skull in order to keep valuable organs intact, Dr. Nucatola was shown in the first video also discussing the sale of fetal body parts as she ate lunch and sipped her wine. She estimated the fees to be from $30 to $100 for providing aborted parts to medical researchers.

David Daleiden from the Center for Medical Progress is part of a nearly 3-year-long investigative journalism study, titled “Human Capital,” and accused Planned Parenthood in Los Angeles of criminal behavior, saying the organization “has been involved in selling the body parts of the babies that they abort for decades … they sell the body parts and they make money off of doing so.”

Though most in the liberal media have kept this story under wraps as much as possible, a response to the heavy criticism came from Cecil Richards, Planned Parenthood’s CEO. It is interesting that she apologized for the tone of Deborah Nuctola, not for her words or for selling aborted baby body parts.

Sadly, Planned Parenthood is also lying to women by altering their abortion procedures in order to get baby parts that can be sold for profit. This is a serious legal and ethical breech; but since the left controls the media, will Planned Parenthood be held accountable?

According to their own report, out of all Planned Parenthood services for pregnant women, abortion makes up over 94%. It has also been revealed that Planned Parenthood has abortion quotas, and they give out 1.5 million emergency contraception kits (known to cause abortion if fertilization has already occurred) every year. About 46% of all funding (a half-billion dollars!) received by Planned Parenthood comes from generous taxpayers. Get more facts here.

Abby Johnson wrote an open letter to Dr. Nucatola. Johnson has some special insight, having run a Planned Parenthood clinic. “I used to be just like you,” she wrote. “My former clinic used to harvest fetal body parts … all of the blood, body parts, and extra tissue would be collected into a glass jar.” Johnson added this: “After a grueling abortion day, we would all go out for margaritas and talk about harvesting fetal parts as if we were talking about harvesting a field of corn.”

Buried in history is the fact that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s agenda was to eliminate minorities as well as the “unfit,” and to “produce a race of thoroughbreds.”

Finally, Planned Parenthood may be a so-called “nonprofit” organization; but they are certainly not “non-partisan” as they rally millions to vote for pro-abortion candidates. In fact, they spent over $15 million on the 2012 election, including $8 million in ads attacking Mitt Romney.

Who will speak up? Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1). Though a majority of citizens oppose Planned Parenthood, which should affect how people vote, I am not holding my breath.

But if God’s people do not act, then who will? Christians have allowed the moral anchors of America to be moved. As salt and light in society, we must push back the forces of evil and use the political tools at our disposal to advance and defend God’s justice and righteousness in public policy and law. We dropped the ball, America, and we are now living with the consequences of our past silence. Where we go from here is up to us.

As for the organization in the headlines, “Preventing Parenthood” seems a more appropriate name.

Watch: Atheists Attacked A 5-Word Sign In A Small Texas Town, And It’s Backfired BIG TIME

A small town in East Texas is under pressure to remove a sign because it makes a reference to Jesus Christ.

The small town of Hawkins, Texas, about 100 miles west of Shreveport, La., held a revival Sunday to show support for a sign that reads “Jesus Welcomes You to Hawkins.” It is unclear whether or not the sign is on public or private property.

“The times have changed,” Rhonda Lane told KYTX. “It’s no longer a time to just sit around and be quiet and think everything’s going to be alright. You must get involved and take a stand.”

Resident Justin Lane added: “We decided that we had to stand up for the civil liberties of Christians in America to say we have as much freedom of speech as anyone else.”

Capture

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to the Hawkins City Council at the beginning of June pressing the local body to remove the sign. “It is inappropriate and unconstitutional for the City of Hawkins to display the sign described above because it conveys both a government preference for religion over nonreligion, and prefers Christianity over other religions,” wrote FFRF staff attorney Sam Grover. “The display of religious messages on public property violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which prohibits public grounds from advancing, supporting, or promoting religion.”

The ‘Jesus Welcomes You to Hawkins’ sign sends a message to the City’s citizens that the Hawkins government is endorsing and compelling belief in a particular god. By endorsing such a belief, the sign sends the message to nonadherents ‘that they are outsiders, not full members of the political community, and an accompanying message to adherents that they are insiders, favored members …” McCreary, 545 U.S. at 860 (citation omitted).

“The Constitution is very clear about freedom of religion, not freedom from it,” Hawkins Mayor Will Rogers said. “I think we have to stand up for the foundation of our country. I mean, we’re built on God and Jesus. I’m sorry if people don’t like that but it’s true.” Rogers also told KLTV the sign itself makes no reference to a particular church. “To me and many others, Jesus is not a religion, Jesus is in every religion across the globe,” he said last month. “He’s in Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism. He represents love and kindness.”

After meeting Monday in front of a standing room only crowd, the Hawkins City Council decided to postpone making a decision about the sign. In the interim, the city attorney will take the time to determine whether or not the sign is on public or private property, according to KYTX.
