We DO Have Religious Freedom… Even in Schools!

Christian Life Issues
Yes, you CAN read your Bible and pray anywhere in this country. There are no "religion-free zones." Louisiana Says Students Have Right to Pray, Read Bible in Public Schools Christian Headlines - By: Amanda Casanova - "Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., have released the Louisiana Students Rights Review, a 15-page guide that explains the religious freedom rights of teachers and students in public schools. The review says that public schools in the U.S. do not need to be 'religion-free zones.' 'To the contrary, both federal and state laws specifically protect religious freedom rights in public schools,' the document reads. 'Thankfully, Congress and our state legislature still recognize the fundamental importance of religious liberty — the first freedom listed in the Constitution's Bill of Rights.'…

Lawnessness Should Not Be Celebrated

Christian Life Issues
The issue with those that "stand up" for illegal immigration, and "sanctuary" city and state proclamations: Matthew 23:28 (AMP) "So you, also, outwardly seem to be just and upright to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." Celebrating and supporting lawlessness is hypocritical. We have laws to support order and to keep citizens safe.

The Modern English Bible

Christian Life Issues
One of my Christmas presents this year was the Kenneth Copeland Ministries 50th Anniversary Edition of the Word of Faith Study Bible. It is the Modern English Version. Here's info on the MEV from Bible Gateway: "The Modern English Version (MEV) heralds a new day for Bibles with the most modern translation ever produced in the King James tradition, providing fresh clarity for Bible readers everywhere with an updated language that doesn’t compromise the truth of the original texts. The MEV maintains the beauty of the past, yet provides clarity for a new generation of Bible readers. The MEV is a translation of the Textus Receptus and the Jacob ben Hayyim edition of the Masoretic Text, using the King James Version as the base manuscript. The MEV is a literal…

A Word for the Wise

Christian Life Issues
This is a post from the Family Research Council web site: "President Obama may not think America is a Christian nation -- but the majority of people want it to be. According to the Barna Group's annual 'State of the Bible' report, most Americans think the country would be better off if they read and applied God's word to daily life. And that includes politicians. More than half of Americans think our elected officials would be 'more effective' if they read Scripture every day. In an election cycle when we've witnessed some of the worst personal attacks of any campaigns, it would certainly add some civility to the race. Despite the significant cultural shift in the country, 80 percent still see the Bible as sacred literature -- which, the majority…

My Determined Stand of Faith!

Christian Life Issues
I posted this on Facebook, and was encouraged by the support I got: "I am about to say something so controversial, so forbidden by society at large, it may shock many. I can't say that I am sorry, because I am not... I have had people tell me I should not say this lest it impact my career, my friendships, in fact, everything. If you are as bold, and brazen, as I am, then be prepared to face persecution. But, here goes... are you ready? I believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired Word of God. It says what it means, and means what it says. My personal thoughts, opinions, and feelings mean NOTHING compared to the infallible Word of God. I read it, believe it, and live it.…

A Sad Day for America

Christian Life Issues
The Supreme Court just ruled that un-Biblical marriage is the "law" of the land. The BIBLE states that marriage is between one man and one woman. The Supreme Court now disagrees with THE BIBLE. Guess what I believe? I believe the Bible. I don't care one whit what the Supreme Court has said. I will always believe and profess the Bible. It is a sad day for America... I weep for my country.

The Bible Isn’t Part of Christian Belief? What?!

Christian Life Issues
I am a supporter of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) and Jay Sekulow sent this email out recently: "Bill, It's a case that could devastate religious freedom in the military. A Marine was ordered to remove a Bible verse from her desk because her commanding officer "didn't like their tone." The officer forcibly removed the verse, cursed at the Bible (with profanity I won't repeat), and had her court martialed. The verse? "No weapon formed against me shall prosper." (Isaiah 54:17) Unbelievably, a military court held that this verse was based on "subjective beliefs" and not "part of a religious belief system." That's right; the Bible isn't part of being a Christian. This is intolerable. If it stands, this ruling could eviscerate religious freedom in the military.…

Send Obama a Message!

Christian Life Issues
This Charisma Magazine article offers some hope that we can send a message that Christians aren't "less-than-loving," or "extremists." One Way to Stop Obama's Attacks on Christianity "At an Easter Prayer Breakfast, President Obama attacked Christians. He called Christians 'less-than-loving.' He did it surrounding the day Christians celebrate the ultimate gift of love—the day Christ died because He loved us. It's offensive and uncalled for. But this isn't the first time he's insulted Christians. At the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this year, he demanded Christians get off their 'high horse' about Christian persecution. And his Administration has labeled Christians in the military as 'extremists.' We're fighting back—defending Christians—demanding President Obama apologize. Add your name to our open letter: Mr. President, Christians aren't 'extremists.' We aren't unloving. We're not on a…

So-Called Christian Leaders Embrace Gay Lifestyle

Christian Life Issues
The Bible is plain on a homosexual lifestyle. It is sin. God calls it an abomination. But a recent article about a "Christian author" that appeared on Oprah, said of the homosexual lifestyle: "I think culture is already there and the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense, when you have in front of you flesh-and-blood people who are your brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and co-workers and neighbors and they love each other and just want to go through life with someone." Excuse me? What you call "irrelevant letters from 2,000 years ago," I call the HOLY BIBLE! If you don't believe in God, or His Word, and the truth that is contained therein...…
