God Rules – Like it or Not

After Moses reminded Israel of several facts, before their entry into Caanan, he said; “Know therefore this day, and lay it to thy heart, that Jehovah he is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath; there is none else. 40And thou shalt keep his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days in the land, which Jehovah thy God giveth thee, for ever”. (Deuteronomy 4:39,40)

It is evident that man has forgotten who is charge, and who rules among men. Who is man to change God’s laws? It seems that our government, religious institutions, individuals seem to make decisions based on what they think is good, not what God says is right. If you think that way it is time to remember “who makes the rules.

Judicial Benchmarks: Hate Crimes Law Challenged

The Michigan-based Thomas More Law Center is challenging the constitutionality of the federal Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, which was attached to defense authorization legislation last fall. The bill adds gender disorientation or identity to the list of protected minorities, which in turn means stiffer penalties for crimes committed against these “special” classes of victims. The plaintiffs are three pastors and the president of the American Family Association of Michigan, who “take a strong public stand against the homosexual agenda, which seeks to normalize disordered sexual behavior that is contrary to Biblical teaching,” the Law Center said in a news release.

According to CNS News, “The lawsuit alleges that the new law violates the plaintiffs’ rights to freedom of speech, expressive association, and free exercise of religion protected by the First Amendment, and it violates the equal protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment. The lawsuit also alleges that Congress lacked authority to enact the legislation under the Tenth Amendment and the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.”

The Patriot Post records the above information. Looking throught the news reports and speeches from the President it is evident that most in our government support homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle along with all benefits of a legal marriage. They do not want to hear what the scriptures say on the subject, or disregard it completely. Is it accurate to disregard God when deciding our nations laws? Our founding Fathers didn’t think so or they would have written the Constitution, Bill of Rights, etc. to so reflect. It’s time to tell our leaders to let the scriptures guide their decisions.

There’s nothing “gay” about gender-disorientation pathology

There’s nothing “gay” about gender-disorientation pathology
By Mark Alexander · Friday, June 2, 2006

It’s that time of year again, when many unsuspecting American families travel to one of the nation’s favorite family-theme parks only to find themselves at the epicenter of cultural degradation. This week, hordes of extroverted homosexuals congregated in Orlando at Disney’s Pleasure Island for the annual exercise in societal entropy they call “Gay Days at Disney.” Fortunately, the gaudy and lurid displays of sexual deviance at Disney are not typical of the public etiquette maintained by most homosexuals.

Our forefathers understood “gay” to mean “licentious, lacking moral restraints, leading a debauched or dissolute life.” The “Gay ’90s,” for example, was a decade the sagacious Mark Twain dubbed “The Gilded Age” — an era of unmitigated opulence and unrestrained immorality exercised by a subculture of the elite. Now, in the current vernacular of the fashionably PC, “gay” alludes to “homosexual” and therefore evokes the words of that inimitable American philosopher Yogi Berra: “This is like deja vu all over again.”

They may call it “gay,” but it’s not. Indeed, today’s “gay” culture is equally dissolute, and its agenda is anathema to the bedrock institution of our past, present and future — the American family.

Of course, homosexuality is not the most insidious of social trends that undermine the continuity of the traditional family — the essential governing unit and innate building block of natural society. That unfortunate distinction is reserved for those who divorce — particularly men who abandon their responsibility as husbands and fathers.

Concerns about divorce and its consequential degradation of social and moral order are not new. As Founding Father John Adams wrote, “The foundation of national morality must be laid in private families. … How is it possible that Children can have any just Sense of the sacred Obligations of Morality or Religion if, from their earliest Infancy, they learn their Mothers live in habitual Infidelity to their fathers, and their fathers in as constant Infidelity to their Mothers?”

What is new is the vast number of fatherless children in America, kids who have been largely abandoned by their biological fathers, and the incalculable burden that places on them and society. One deleterious outcome associated with some of these broken and dysfunctional families, in addition to the life sentence they serve trying to sort out the rejection issues, is the absence of a healthy sexual identity — particularly in boys who have not been fathered properly. This identity void can result in lifetime pursuit of homosexual approval.

Though divorce, unlike homosexuality, lacks a well funded and well organized advocacy movement attempting to normalize it (divorce lawyers notwithstanding), it isn’t difficult to connect the dots between dysfunctional families and homosexuality.

To understand fully the homosexual subculture and its aggressive social agenda, then, one must gain some rational insight into the pathology of homosexual behavior. Unfortunately, there are few comprehensive treatises on the subject that inspire rational discourse — as opposed to emotive rants.

A few years ago, the most learned debates over the ordination of a homosexual cleric as Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire revealed that not only the Episcopal clergy and laity needed assistance understanding this issue, but the Christian Church as a whole needed clarity. Indeed our whole society needs a better, and in some cases more compassionate, understanding of homosexual pathology.

Consequently, The Patriot has just published The Homosexual Agenda and The Christian Response on line, a comprehensive yet concise review of gender-disorientation pathology. It’s an essay that anyone, inside or outside the Church, making a psychological, theological or social argument concerning homosexuality, should read.

The real value of this landmark report’s substance is not measured in the accolades from conservatives around the world who have reviewed it, but in the unguarded praise it has received from homosexuals (including some activists), who responded that, for the first time, they have been able to comprehend, with the help of this analysis, both the Christian theological and conservative social perspective and objections, without feeling personally attacked.

Every American family is under assault from many quarters, one of the most menacing being the challenge to traditional sexual morality. The Homosexual Agenda and The Christian Response, provides context for understanding sexual deviancy and addresses the familial origins and pathology of such deviance, the political, cultural and social “normalization” agenda of homosexual practitioners, the conflict this agenda has created within the Christian Church, and an appropriate Christian response.

High on the homosexual political agenda list is same-sex marriage. President Bush announced this week his support for a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. While we would support such an amendment, we believe that if the President is going to use what is left of his political capital to mobilize a national movement to amend our Constitution, there are much more important amendments to consider, starting with one mandating [a balanced federal budget| http://PatriotPetitions.US/intro.asp?id=16%5D (just as most states require a balanced state budget).

That debate aside, if you’re interested in healthy marriages and families, the consequences of broken families and the potential implications of a largely unabated homosexual agenda on the next generation of our children, take a few minutes to read The Homosexual Agenda and The Christian Response — regardless of your theological orientation.

Truth

“Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, nor less so even if the whole world disagrees with it.” –Maimonides (1135-1204)

Watching and Warning

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: 18When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 19Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.

Ezekiel was a priest of Israel. God made him a watchman to warn the people, both wicked and righteous, and said to him 4“Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them”.  7But the house of Israel will not listen to you, because they will not listen to Me; for all the house of Israel are impudent and hard-hearted.

God always gives us warning that he will not allow evil to go unpunished. It is time to heed that warning, instead of following those who deceive us into thinking that God is so good that he will not punish sin. You have been warned.

Home School Fight

“The latest of many examples of government arrogance has come in New Hampshire, of all places, where the state motto is ‘Live Free or Die.’ A state judge has ordered a girl who was being educated at home by her mother to begin attending a public school because of the ‘rigidity’ of her mother’s religious views. The judge, Lucinda V. Sadler, said that the 10-year-old girl needed to consider other worldviews as she matures. … There are a number of issues in this case, not the least of which is the court’s attempt to define what represents an ‘extreme’ religious view and what is more ‘mainstream.’ A growing number of parents, including some in my family, home-school their children. My personal experience is that these kids get a better education, are better adjusted and easily gain entry into college because of their superior grades and seriousness of purpose, not to mention their character. Another issue is the apparent one-way street constructed by Judge Sadler. If a Christian girl ought to go to public school to learn about other views (this presumes she does not know about them through study at home, reading a newspaper or turning on the television), why shouldn’t the judge order a public school student to get a Christian-Jewish-Islamic-based education so that such a student might become acquainted with the Bible-Talmud-Koran? … Amanda’s mother retained the Alliance Defense Fund, the conservative legal alliance that works to defend religious liberty, but meanwhile, the girl has been forced by the court to sit in a fifth-grade classroom, which is a violation of her and her mother’s consciences and the First Amendment. … I’m on the side of the people. The New Hampshire judge and the Obama administration are on the side of the elites. And that’s why so many are justifiably angry.” –columnist Cal Thomas

Christians will eventually have to learn to fight against those who would take away from them their God given rights and responsibility. The scriptures give Fathers the obligation of “raising their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6). So far the courts have taken away much of where the bible can be taught, prayers said, where and what can be posted and now they want to tell us how, and what  to teach our children. When will we say ENOUGH?

HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY for Andy Rooney.

HELLO FOLKS:  This is also true in CANADA

 
HOORAY,  HOORAY, HOORAY for Andy Rooney. I myself have been grumbling and wondering how a handful of people have been able to take our right to pray in public places away from us. So, agreeing with Andy, I GLADLY will forward this email AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN.


Folks, this is the Month that we RE-TAKE AMERICA
********* Get  Ready *********


Keep this going around the  globe . Read it and forward every time you receive it. We  can’t give up on this issue.

Andy Rooney and  Prayer

Andy Rooney says:

I don’t believe in Santa  Claus, but I’m not going to sue somebody for singing a  Ho-Ho-Ho song in December.  I don’t agree with Darwin , but I didn’t go out and hire a lawyer when my high school  teacher taught his Theory of Evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not  be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what’s the big deal?  It’s not like somebody is up there reading the entire Book of Acts.  They’re just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.

But it’s a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America , a country founded on Christian principles.  According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1.  So what would  you expect — somebody chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game in Jerusalem , I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer…

If I went to a soccer game in  Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match in China , I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.

And I wouldn’t be  offended.
  It wouldn’t bother me one bit.

When in Rome   …..

But what about the atheists? Is another argument.

What about them? Nobody  is asking them to be baptized.  We’re not going to pass the collection plate.  Just humor us for 30 seconds.   If that’s asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs.  Go to the bathroom.  Visit the concession stand.  Call your lawyer!

Unfortunately, one or two will make that call.  One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do.. I don’t think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world’s foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights.  Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating, to pray before we go to sleep.  Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing.  Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.

The  silent majority has been silent too long.  It’s time we tell that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn’t care what they want.  It is time that the majority
Rules!   It’s time we tell them, you don’t have to pray; you don’t have to say the Pledge of Allegiance; you don’t have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him.  That is your right, and we will honor your right; but by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away.  We are fighting back, and we WILL WIN!

God bless us one and all …  Especially those who denounce Him , God  bless America , despite all her faults.  She is still the greatest nation of all. God bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.


Let’s make 2009
the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions. And our military forces come home from all the wars.

Keep looking  up.

If you agree with this,  please pass it on.
If not delete  it..

 

 


 
   

Work and wealth

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”  Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

The scriptures agree with the above quote, in both the scriptural and physical realm. We need to work to teach and save souls, as well as supplying our physical needs.

Jefferson on rights

“The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.” –Alexander Hamilton
