This week, in our Connect Groups at Southern Calvert Baptist Church, we are finishing up our last study on the Old Testament. This has been a two year journey. Our goal was to walk through the entire Bible over a three year period. It took us about 2 years to get to where we are now and that means that we will walk through the New Testament in one year. This week, our focus is on Malachi, the last book before God goes silent for 400 years.
Our modern society is full of paradoxes. I do not have the time nor space to tackle them all one by one. I would like to focus on one in particular. As a modern society, we claim to be humane. Many boast that we are “more humane than God” because we do not see the need to punish murderers or rapists with death. That statement seems to make sense until you look beyond the superficiality of it. Not punishing the guilty for his crimes is an inhumane act toward the victim of that crime. What is even more bizarre is the fact that those who oppose punishing the criminals with death because it is inhumane, promote abortion (calling it pro choice of course) on demand. Continue reading
I am very interested in the latest news about the abortion “debate” (if you want to call the liberal-progressives ranting and raving over people’s choice of not agreeing with abortion). Focus on the Family and Dr. James Dobson have teamed up with legendary University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, who is a born again Christian, to make and promote a pro life commercial during the 2010 Super Bowl.

If you have read any of the teachings of Jesus Christ then you will be quick to admit/realize that Jesus Christ hates hypocrisy. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ then you probably (should) hate hypocrisy as well. Those who do not follow Christ fall into the trap of hypocrisy very easily. You do not have to be religious in order to be a hypocrite (contrary to popular belief). The mass media spent an entire election cycle praising Mr. O for being a courageous black man running for the highest office in the land. It was such an historic event, blah blah blah. The problem is that there was another black man who had already run for president in the past and also had his hat in the pot during the 08 campaign. I refer to the African American conservative Alan Keyes. It is odd that he got no love from the liberal mass media (who loved the African American Mr. O). Would someone please stand up and scream hypocrites! Mr. Keyes is a conservative and stands for family values, Christian values, the right to life, etc. and for that reason he got no love from the media. The race card is applied only when it benefits the liberal point of view, unfortunately. Maybe Keyes and Palin will run in 2012 and then it will be a truly historic event. Palin as President and Keyes as Continue reading
If you watched or heard Nanci Pelosi speak the other day during her lie fest then you probably felt as awkward as I did. I felt bad for the people in the audience whom she thought were dumb or naive enough to believe her. She is acting like a typical liberal dem. Lying is their forte (N.B. W.J. Clinton comes to mind). I suppose that she will cease with the “we won” victory chant that she has been flaunting over and over. Just let the liberal dems be themselves and they will screw up royally eventually. I am waiting for Mr. O to make his royal mistake (he has already made many but we will not see the consequences for a while). Just sit back and enjoy the meltdown.
I remember how the “left” had nothing but criticism for Sarah Palin during the 08 Presidential elections and one of the more often used quotes by them was, “this woman would only be a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world, could you imagine if that were the case?”. I was offended by the blatant dishonesty in the liberal mass-media as they pushed for their man Obama. I agree with Sean Hannity that “journalism is dead” in the US. Well, the liberals won the election and the whole “heartbeat” away scenario seemed to just vanish into thin air. Now I ask myself, “Joe Biden is only a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world, can you imagine that world?”. I cannot yet it is odd that although Joe is the backside of many jokes about his big mouth and incompetence, no one in the liberal mass media connects the dots of him (Joe) being president if, God forbid, something were to happen to Mr. O. Can we say double standard? Where is bathtub boy (a.k.a. Keith Olbermann)? Where is Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews? The left is just being the left, unfair and unbalanced. I wonder if they will prop up Pelosi or let her take the fall in order to divert from Mr. O’s problems? We can only sit back and enjoy the show.
I find myself speaking to liberals more and more these days (maybe since they have become so bold with Obama-mania). I see such a double standard in the way that they talk and think. Obama is a classic example of this with his appointments now that he is president (no more lobbyists? who did he just appoint? oh yeah a lobbyist, yet he is excused because he is the right man for the job, can we say double standard?) I do not want to get into the Obama debate now because I could write on and on about the Obama liberal double standard. I want to write about a website that I have been visiting for a while now. The site claims to be founded by people who are open-minded and tolerant. I read some of the posts and immediately saw many false statements. Believing that these people were truly open-minded and tolerant I decided to correct some of the mistakes. I was very nice as I explained why the writers were wrong in what they had stated. They were making claims about God that were not Biblical. I brought the Biblical argument with the correct changes. I was immediately attacked. The open-minded tolerant mood changed dramatically. I learned quickly that open-minded means that you have to be open-minded to what we believe (i.e. liberals) but it is not reciprocal. There was also a claim that the writers on the site were free thinkers yet when someone began to question their ideas with good arguments (i.e. me) then they began to censor what was written. This is a typical response from liberal free-thinkers. The site is here if you want Continue reading
