The Church is Encouraged to Stand Against Militant Atheism

Christian Life Issues
A recent Christian Post article expresses the need for vigilance against "militant atheism." 2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2Ti 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2Ti 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of…

Fight the Good Fight!

How Faith Works
1Ti 6:12 "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses." The only fight we are to fight as believers is the fight of faith. We don't fight against men, we don't fight against society... though it is incumbent upon us to speak the truth of the Word to society and live as an and example before society. BUT, we don't fight society, we don't attack, we extol God's love, His virtue, His demonstration of Love in sending Jesus as sacrifice and substitute for THE WORLD. We aren't against the world, we are to, as God did, and does, LOVE the world! Indeed, we are here to reach the world with the Love of…

Can I Give You a Book, Or Is It Against the Law?

Christian Political Views
Alright, you liberal, bleeding heart folks that are so against book burning... can I choose to give anyone a book anywhere I want... if I want to? Now, if they refuse it, fine, but do I have the freedom to offer them a book? Would you take away my right to give someone some reading material? Well, they have in Missouri. There, I can't give away a book in a school according to the Missouri Supreme Court. That book, is, of course, the Bible. What is everyone so afraid of? Does the Bible bite? If it is "just another book" with no unique authority in and of itself, why prevent me from giving it out? School Policy Allowing Bible Distribution Ruled Unconstitutional "A federal judge has ruled a Missouri school…

Kellie Copeland’s Article on “The Golden Compass”

Christian Life Issues
Wow! This is a great article demonstrating just how bad this movie and series is! Check out the article through this link: The Golden Compass—Pointing Children in the Wrong Direction Consider the collective impact of the following points taken from interviews and quotes from the series and by Mr. Pullman himself: THE FALL IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN * It is considered a positive step towards enlightenment and the improvement of life. It is a central theme of the trilogy. Lyra and Will (the two main characters) represent Adam and Eve, whose temptation was their love for each other. * In a recent interview[1], Mr. Pullman states, “…the Satan figure is Mary Malone, not Lord Asriel and the temptation is wholly beneficent. She tells her story about how she fell…

“Golden Compass” Update… We Are Having an Effect!

Christian Life Issues
The boycott that many Christian leaders have asked for is working! "The Golden Compass" opened to a low turnout this past weekend! Boycott Credited for ‘Golden Compass’ Lackluster Opening "The lackluster opening of the controversial movie “The Golden Compass” has some media outlets reporting that a Christian-organized boycott of the film seems to be working. Splashing news headlines for controversy over its anti-religious themes, the fantasy film debuted at the box office last Friday, taking in an estimated $26.1 million from markets in United States and Canada. That amount falls short of the $30 million to $40 million that had been expected. Rolf Mittweg of New Line Cinema, which released 'Compass,' concedes that the religion controversy 'might have had an effect,' reported USA Today. But Mittweg said he didn’t think…

The Question of “Faith in America” (Mitt Romney’s Speech)

Christian Political Views
First, let me say that if you have not heard Mitt Romney's speech, do go listen to it. As I write this, I have just listened to it from beginning to end. And, as I write this, it is displayed on the main page of his web site... as time passes, you may have to search for it on his site. Here is a link to his site: Mitt Romney Web Site Now, understand, I am not going to endorse ANYONE for President... in fact, I haven't made up my mind yet. I am prayerfully considering who I will vote for, and I will most certainly vote! That is a right that we have in this great country that was purchased with the blood of many good men and women.…

“The Golden Compass” – A Christian View

Christian Life Issues
The article at the link below is excellent! It is by a Youth Minister. I wish every believer would read and understand the issues behind the controversy involving this movie. It is not a case of simple "entertainment!" The Real Golden Compass "Think of it as the 'anti-Narnia' story, if you will. At least I get that vibe from the Golden Compass author Philip Pullman when he states: 'I hate the Narnia books, and I hate them with a deep and bitter passion.' What do you think? Did you pick up any message from that subtle statement (which is incredibly ironic since he borrows a significant amount of imagery and plot points from The Chronicles of Narnia for his books)? Let’s see … the Golden Compass introduces us to Lucy…

The Bible, and ONLY the Bible is the Word of God!

Christian Life Issues
This (the link below) is a story about Mormons and the Bible, and how Mitt Romney, trying to appeal to evangelical Christians (as if there were any other kind) said that the Bible is inerrant. The article states that though the Mormons "respect" the Bible... they believe that it does have errors, and they believe that the Book of Mormon, and other books are "just as inspired" as the Bible. Mormons and the Bible, Every Word "LDS.org, an official Web site of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, notes: 'Latter-day Saints revere the Bible. They study it and believe it to be the word of God. However, they do not believe the Bible, as it is currently available, is without error.' 'As the Bible was compiled, organized, translated…

Are You REALLY Thankful?

Christian Life Issues
Psalms 100:1 "Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. 2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before His presence with singing. 3 Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. 4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His Name. 5 For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations." Thanksgiving is a special time. We are encouraged to be thankful even by the world at large. But as believers, we have a special call from the Word of God to be thankful unto God Himself. I thank…
