Buy a shirt at http://www.prayer-matters.org 'Civil War': Ohio School District Bans Prayer Before Sporting Events CBN - By: Talia Wise - "Tensions are running high at several schools in Cleveland, Ohio, after the district banned prayer before athletic events last month. Students and parents on both sides of the issue are speaking up. It all began, when West Branch School District stopped the long-standing tradition of prayer after receiving a letter of complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). The letter claims that a prayer was made over the loudspeaker before a high school basketball game, which FFRF says is unconstitutional. 'It was reported that all in attendance were asked to remain standing…

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YF7mkyd-Wm4[/youtube] Google Home Devices Identify Muhammad, Buddha, and Satan, But Not Jesus Christian Headlines - By: Veronica Neffinger - Many Christians are outraged after discovering that Google Home devices will identify Muhammad, Buddha, and Satan, but not Jesus. Devices like Google Home and Amazon's Alexa which can play your music, tell your the weather, answer various trivia, and make phone calls, are becoming increasingly popular (one in six American adults owns one), and that is why many are concerned that the device may be biased against Christianity. The Christian Post reports that Television producer, author, and speaker David Sams did an experiment in which he compared the answers of Alexa with those of Google Home. Sams reported that when he asked Google who Jesus Christ is, it responds, 'Sorry, I'm…

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.

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.

Discrimination on Iowa Campus!

Christian Political Views
I am familiar with this kind of discrimination, because, in the 1970's, as President of Full Gospel Student Fellowship, at UNCG, I was called in to the Student Council meeting, and we, along with Campus Crusade, and other Christian groups, were thrown off campus for similar "reasons." I appealed to the Dean of Student Affairs at the time, and got us reinstated, but there was no "tolerance" back then by the politically correct "snowflakes," and that was the 1970s! It is much worse today! Christian Student Group Kicked Out Of Iowa University For Possessing A 'Statement Of Faith' FaithWire - By: Will Maule - "A group of Christians students from a University in Iowa has been shut down after it was revealed that they ask new members to sign a…

This is a powerful article by Dr. Larry Ollison, the President of the International Convention of Faith Ministries (ICFM), their website is at www.icfm.org How Do I Know Who To Vote For? "We are a product of our choices. The world we are living in today was framed by the decisions we made yesterday and the world we will live in tomorrow is being framed by the decisions we make today. Our decisions in life not only determine our future, but the destiny of generations to come. Unfortunately, many decisions are made on perceived realities, or perceived fear or emotions. Only decisions that are based on truth and agree with the Word of God will bring future peace and prosperity. When decisions are continuously a result of tradition, prejudice, or…

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…

Anti-Christian Activity Grows – ACLJ Newsletter

Christian Political Views
I got this today from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). "Bill, Universities are engaging in anti-Christian discrimination at an alarming rate. One state college rejected a Christian student, saying the medical 'field is not the place for religion.' In fact, when we took the case, the school doubled down saying the student's reliance on 'God' and 'religious beliefs' for wanting to serve others is not a 'concrete reason.' In another of our cases, a college student was denied admission because he 'brought up religion.' This isn't just outrageous; it's blatantly unconstitutional. Right now we're in federal court in both cases. But disturbingly anti-Christian discrimination is growing nationwide. One university student was expelled for her faith, another was told to defile the name of Jesus, and another was…
