SIX THINGS WE HAVE LOST AS A NATION
If we were to go back about 70 years, to America’s political landscape, we would see that there has always been a division between the two main political parties (Democrats and Republicans) on how to govern the nation. However in those days there were six basics fundamentals that the nation rallied around, including any Senator, Congressman and even the President.
MAN RETIRES EARLY TO AVOID BIO-METRIC SCANNING
A recent report involving a mining company in Western Pennsylvania has caused a stir among the Evangelical Christians in the area. The company was requiring all of its employees to begin using a bio-metric scanning system that would track them on the job. One miner, Beverly Butcher Jr., refused the hand-scan because he believes it is part of the Mark of the Beast system, identified in Revelation 13:18. The prophecy speaks of men not being able to buy or sell, unless they have the mark, the name, or the number of the beast.
MOVING FROM ROUGH TIMES TO PERILIOUS TIMES
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
2 Tim. 3:1-2
Christ was ministering in the lower Galilee when he and his disciples sailed across the lake to one of the cities of the Decapolis. Passing a grave yard, a man who had experienced a mental breakdown and had become possessed by about two-thousand spirits met Christ. The Bible says he was “exceedingly fierce” (Matt. 8:28). In this narrative the word fierce in Greek is chalepos, meaning to ‘reduce strength; to become difficult and dangerous.’ He was not just a rough fellow having a hard time, since the spirits within him could break chains and wooden fetters. He was dangerous to anyone who encountered him.
STILL AWAITING THE MAHDI
This morning, I was handed a report from a journalist that was in Iran when a special meeting was held with the Imams and spiritual leaders of Iran (known in the Bible as Persia), that revealed the Iranian Islamic community is in high anticipation of the soon arrival of the “expected one,” identified by the name, The Mahdi.
Why Are Christians Upset about the Ruling In California?
I want to do my best as a Christian and as an American citizen to explain why people in the Christian community are upset with the Supreme Court decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8 in California. I want to hopefully answer some questions for people who don’t understand our position on the Word of God as believers.
Here is what happened. The portion of the DOMA that has been ruled unconstitutional is a provision that denies benefits to legally-married, same-gender couples. Same-gender couples, under federal law, will now be considered “married”.
