Care of our feet!
Post Date: 2016-06-20 22:49:40 by Don
Care of our feet! (Charles Spurgeon) "He will keep the feet of His saints!" 1 Samuel 2:9 The way is slippery, and our feet are feeble--but the Lord will keep our feet. If we give ourselves up by obedient faith to be His holy ones--He will Himself be our guardian. Not only will He charge His angels to keep us--but He Himself will preserve our goings! He will keep our feet from falling, so that we do not . . . defile our garments, wound our souls, and cause the enemy to blaspheme. He will keep our feet from wandering--so that we do not go into paths of error, or ways of folly, or courses of the world's custom. He will keep our feet from swelling and blistering because of ...
When God Abandons a Nation
Post Date: 2016-06-18 21:19:10 by Don
When God Abandons a Nation Romans 1:18-32 80-314 It is always instructive, it is always enlightening, it is sometimes literally scintillating to turn to the pages of God and see what it has to say and how relevantly it speaks to our time and to our lives. That will be true tonight as we turn in our Bibles to the first chapter of Romans. Romans chapter 1 and we're going to be looking at a somewhat familiar portion of Scripture to anyone who is a student of the Bible. Romans chapter 1, beginning in verse 18 and running through the end of this chapter. I'm going to read just the first verse to set the stage for the unfolding of this profound truth. Romans 1:18, "For the wrath ...
Muslim view of LGBT people in spotlight after Orlando attack
Post Date: 2016-06-16 09:38:17 by cranky
After the massacre in Orlando, the head of a prominent Muslim advocacy group stood before a bank of microphones and made remarks beyond the expected condemnations. Along with denouncing the attack by gunman Omar Mateen as a violation of Islam, and offering prayers for the victims at the gay nightclub Pulse, Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations expressed unequivocal support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights. "For many years, members of the (LGBT) community have stood shoulder to shoulder with the Muslim community against any acts of hate crimes, Islamophobia, marginalization and discrimination. Today, we stand with them, shoulder to ...
The most dangerous of all!
Post Date: 2016-06-15 22:28:43 by Don
The most dangerous of all! (Charles Spurgeon) Of all the temptations to which God's children are exposed, growing rich is perhaps the most dangerous of all because it is a snare that they do not dread. "For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs!" 1 Timothy 6:7-10 "Give me neither ...
If only one of God's sheep were to perish!
Post Date: 2016-06-15 17:49:15 by Don
If only one of God's sheep were to perish! (Darvin Pruitt) "My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish--ever! No one will snatch them out of My hand!" John 10:27-28 If only one of God's sheep were to perish . . . the purpose of God would be frustrated, the power of God would be resisted, the promise of God would be broken, the faithfulness of God would be a mockery and the Word of God proved to be a lie. "I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able ...
The Disease of Modern Liberalism
Post Date: 2016-06-14 13:46:58 by Stoner
Like most everyone, I woke up Sunday to the news that a lunatic had shot up a gay bar in Florida late Saturday night. Also like most people, I figured it was just another example of the old adage, nothing good happens after midnight. Then it became clear it was something more than just the usual trouble and I braced myself for a full blast of crazy from the Cult of Modern Liberalism. I just knew that they would swear this was the fulfillment of prophesy and demand reparations like after the black church shooting. It did not turn out that way, obviously, as the shooter was a Liberal Democrat and a member of a sacred group. Its hard to blame the honky when the shooter is a ...
A REAL ISLAM POLICY FOR A REAL AMERICA
Post Date: 2016-06-13 14:38:01 by nativist nationalist
To deal with the crisis facing our civilization, we must be both realistic and imaginative. The realism part consists in recognizing how bad our situation is. The entire Western world is at present under the grip of the modern liberal ideology that targets every normal and familiar aspect of human life, and our entire historical way of being as a society. The key to this liberal ideology is the belief in tolerance or non- discrimination as the ruling principle of society, the principle to which all other principles must yield. We see this belief at work in every area of modern life. The principle of non-discrimination must, if followed consistently, destroy every human society and ...
How Many Â“Home-GrownÂ” Muslim Attacks Before An Muslim Immigration MoratoriumÂ—And Expulsions?
Post Date: 2016-06-13 13:47:27 by nativist nationalist
After 9/11, I quoted VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelows response in his 1995(!) book Alien Nation: Common Sense About Americas Immigration Disaster to the template immigrant valedictorian sobstory: [W]e might, equally reasonably, expect to see balancing anecdotal coverage like this:

In December 1993, a Jamaican immigrant (admitted as a student, but stayed, illegal status automatically regularized ...
But It's The Religion Of Pieces!
Post Date: 2016-06-12 10:28:14 by nativist nationalist
Still think Trump is full of crap on blocking Islamic Migration and entry until we can reliably figure out who is a radical Islamist and who is not? The gunman, whose identity was not immediately released, may have leanings toward radical Islam, FBI Special Agent in Charge Ron Harper said when asked whether the suspect had ties to Jihadist terror groups. Harper said the investigation is looking into possible threats made previously by the suspect in connection to radical Islam groups. He said the agency is still investigating and has yet to confirm any role a terror group may have played in the mass shooting. There are allegations the individual made threats in the past ...
Southern Baptists see 9th year of membership decline
Post Date: 2016-06-11 21:48:27 by Willie Green
NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Southern Baptist Convention lost more than 200,000 members in 2015 the ninth straight year of decline for the nations largest Protestant denomination. Membership stands at 15.3 million, down from 15.5 million in 2014, according to denomination statistics released this week. Baptisms also fell by more than 10,000 to just a little more than 295,000. Baptisms are an important measure for the Nashville-based denomination because of its strong commitment to evangelism. After the numbers were announced, some denominational leaders emphasized the positive news that the number of Southern Baptist churches increased last year by 294, mostly due to new ...
Libertarianism, Yes! But *What Kind* of Libertarianism? ('Virtue Libertarianism')
Post Date: 2016-06-09 18:49:59 by Hondo68
Virtue vs. Libertinism or, a Reason debate on liberty, license, coercion, and responsibility. Artem Konovalov / 123rf If you've been part of the broad-based libertarian movement for more than a few years, you know that it is growing in popularity, visibility, and influence throughout American politics, culture, and ideas. Once a smallish movement tightly identified with the likes of Ayn Rand, Robert Heinlein, and Milton Friedman, rarely a day goes by now where some new writer, thinker, pundit, artist, or celebrity doesn't come out as libertarian (among the most recent: Jane's Addiction guitarist and TV host Dave Navarro and Republican political consultant Mary Matalin). ...
National Cathedral Will Remove Confederate Flags From Stained Glass Windows
Post Date: 2016-06-09 14:09:39 by Willie Green
The Washington National Cathedral says it will remove two images of the Confederate battle flag from the building's stained glass windows. Then the church will hold a period of public discussion on issues of race, slavery and justice and revisit the question of how to treat other depictions of the Civil War on the windows. The windows in question memorialize Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson; they were installed in 1953 after lobbying by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. They feature images from the lives of the two generals and include two Confederate battle flags. A five-person task force that examined the windows' symbolic power said the flags cannot ...
The Undertaker Pope: A Brief Study of an Infallibly Politically Correct Pontificate
Post Date: 2016-06-06 17:06:13 by IbJensen
In the fourth year of his pontificate, Francis continues to deliver regular payloads of explosive off-the-cuff remarks that delight the media and shock the Catholic faithful. It would be easy at this point simply to ignore these spectacles, but then one would be ignoring a key element of the manner in which Francis is attempting to realize his vision of the Church. As Francis himself has insisted, his magisterium includes an endless stream of informal speech in various venues: Im constantly making statements, giving homilies. Thats magisterium. Thats what I think, not what the media say that I think. Check it out; its very clear. ...
Is this the end of Catholicism?
Post Date: 2016-06-05 23:09:04 by Justified
This was harder than I thought it would be, Margaret OBrien told a CBS reporter last weekend. OBrien, 86, had been one of the hundred or so parishioners holding a round-the-clock vigil at St. Frances X. Cabrini church in Scituate, Mass. Eleven years ago the Boston Archdiocese announced that it was closing the parish, a reorganization necessitated by the financial settlements after the clergy sex-abuse scandal. The parishioners at St. Frances have tried to alter the hierarchys decision using canon law as well as the US legal system, maintaining a presence in the building so it would not be sold out from under them. But last month, they lost their final appeal ...
'The Exorcist' maker says Vatican let him film real rite
Post Date: 2016-05-19 17:20:21 by cranky
William Friedkin, the director of the horror classic "The Exorcist", has revealed that he was allowed to film a real exorcism at the Vatican earlier this month. The 80-year-old American filmmaker told a masterclass at the Cannes film festival late on Thursday that he was invited by the chief exorcist in Rome to record the event. "I was invited by the Vatican exorcist to shoot and video an actual exorcism which... few people have ever seen and which nobody has ever photographed," he said. Friedkin said he was taken aback at how close the ceremony was to the exorcism depicted in his 1973 film. "I was pretty astonished by that. I don't think I will ever be ...
Muslim Refugees Run To Christianity In Europe

Muslim Refugees Run To Christianity In Europe Read more at http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm? Many Muslim refugees fleeing war-torn Syria, and other Middle Eastern countries are converting to Christianity once they get to Europe, various news organizations are reporting. While there would be harsh repercussions for doing this in Syria or Iraq, there are still some obstacles new believers face. Christianity Today reported on a mass baptism of 80 refugees from Iran and Afghanistan in Hamburg, Germany. Albert Babajan, the pastor doing the Baptisms, said there have been about 200 so far this year and he expects as many as 500 before the year ends. Denmark and Austria are also ...
Only as much religion as will save them from Hell!
Post Date: 2016-05-18 21:18:24 by Don
Only as much religion as will save them from Hell! (Horatius Bonar) There are multitudes of professing Christians among us, who want only as much religion as will save them from Hell--not an atom more! The world is their real god. Gold is their idol. They worship in mammon's temple! Love God with all their heart!--they do not so much as understand the meaning of such a thing. Sacrifice riches, place, honor, and friends to Christ!--they scoff at the thing as madness. Oh, be out and out for God! Do not trifle with religion. Do not mock God and Christ. Do not love the world. Be pious in your inmost soul. Do not mistake mere sentimentalism for saving religion--or a good character for ...
A Virgin Mary statue in a Fresno house is being called a miracle

Same-Sex Marriage Didn't End It
Post Date: 2016-05-06 15:50:52 by redleghunter
Anyone who thought that legalizing same-sex marriage would end the hassles is in for a rude surprise. Unexpected consequences are popping up all over. The mayor of Charlottesville, N. Carolina followed the Houston playbook and passed an ordinance that "transgendered" men, who "identified" as women, could freely use the women's bathrooms and changing rooms. The state legislature responded by convening a special session to pass a statewide law protecting the privacy of North Carolina ladies. Homosexual outrage exploded. 100 corporate CEOs signed a letter to the governor demanding repeal of the state law. These were not small outfits, either: Apple, Bank of America, ...
Fire ravages Muslim prayer hall in Corsica
Post Date: 2016-05-01 02:20:31 by nativist nationalist
Ajaccio (France) (AFP) - A Muslim prayer hall in the French island of Corsica was ravaged by fire on Saturday in what prosecutors said was probably a criminal attack. The blaze occurred just months after the island, popular with tourists for its turquoise waters and picturesque mountains, was rocked by anti-Arab riots over Christmas. French President Francois Hollande vowed a swift investigation into the blaze, and action if necessary. "If it is confirmed to be of criminal origin, those responsible must be rapidly identified and brought to justice," he said. "Any anti-religious act must not be tolerated," he added in a statement. The building, one of the largest ...
If God Is Dead…
Post Date: 2016-04-26 18:17:59 by nativist nationalist
In a recent column Dennis Prager made an acute observation. The vast majority of leading conservative writers
have a secular outlook on life.
They are unaware of the disaster that godlessness in the West has led to. These secular conservatives may think that America can survive the death of God and religion, writes Prager, but they are wrong. And, indeed, the last half-century seems to bear him out. A peoples religion, their faith, creates their culture, and their culture creates their civilization. And when faith dies, the culture dies, the civilization dies, and the people begin to die. Is this not the recent history of the West? Today, no ...

Vice Presidential nominee's LDS rant against two-party "dolts": A word on voting from Scott Bradley himself
Post Date: 2016-04-16 19:16:43 by Hondo68
To the editor:Recently, Geoff vonGermeten relegated me to cult status. He mistakenly stated that I did not vote in the last presidential election. While I did not vote for either Democrat or Republican because both candidates well documented historic positions on such critical issues as military adventurism, abortion, government-mandated health care, same-sex marriage, economic policy, climate change, internationalism, etc., made their potential administrations essentially indiscernible, all of Utahs electoral votes went to the Republican. He laments that 11 million Republicans nation-wide did not vote in that election, and thereby threw the election to Mr. Obama. ...
Pope Francis Shatters Reformers’ Dreams with ‘Modern Family’ Document
Post Date: 2016-04-08 08:40:17 by cranky
Pope Francis released his long-awaited letter on marriage and families Friday, and despite predictions of radical changes in Church teaching, Francis hewed to the line of his predecessors regarding traditional Catholic doctrine on marriage and family life. In March, progressive German Cardinal Walter Kasper confidently stated in an interview that the Popes letter will be the first step in a reform that will turn the page back for the Church after a period of 1700 years, especially regarding questions of divorce and remarriage. None of this materialized in the Popes 261-page text. In fact, although the Popes tone is gentle and eminently pastoral, the ...
