Matthew 5; the Character of a Righteous man

In the last post, we examined the righteousness of God that opens up the kingdom of heaven to a person. We discovered lots of interesting truths about ourselves, the righteousness of God, and the kingdom of heaven. You can read the article here as a way of review. The kingdom belongs to you when you have the righteousness of God. I would now like to take a look at the character, or lifestyle of a person who belongs to the kingdom of God because he lives by the righteousness of God. Continue reading

I almost bought some Girl Scout cookies today . . .

I was out and about today, running some errands for my dear wife and children. As I pulled in the parking lot of a local store, I saw the sign and immediately thought of those delicious samoas that were waiting for me. I reached for my money and then I remembered, the Girl Scouts support Planned Parenthood. I stopped in my tracks, put the money back in my pocket, and entered the store to look for a tasty alternative.

Does America really need a LGBT history month?

I was shocked to learn of this news the other day, the fact that Obama has declared the month of June as “Homosexual Pride” month and that homosexual activists have declared the month of October (conveniently while children are in school) as “LGBT History” month.

I would love to know your thoughts on this. I am shocked at this blatant propaganda but at the same time I am not surprised. This is how the homosexual agenda works and it started 1,000s of years ago, all the way back in the book of Genesis. Here are some insights on the homosexual agenda. Continue reading

What happens to a nation that forgets God?

We live during days that are very similar days to the days of the prophet Joel, even though many centuries separate us, our cultures are very similar. At one time during the history of the USA, there was a very healthy fear of the Lord. Children used to pray at school even if they did not come from families that were faithful to God. Many children learned how to read using the Bible as their guide. Bible stories were once the bedtime stories that children heard from their parents. Somewhere along the way, people stopped seeking fellowship with God. It did not happen overnight. It happened little by little until social/secular life became separate from spiritual life and many just completely moved away from spirituality. This discretion is a mirror image of what happened in Israel during the life of the prophet Joel. Society was falling apart then as it seems to be doing now. I would like to examine the root of the problem and see what solution God offers to right was has been made wrong by us, the people. Continue reading

Good Job North Carolina

The good people of North Carolina made a statement that must be heard and appreciated. We live in an age of liberal activist judges shredding the Constitution by forcing people to accept a controversial way of life that they may or may not agree with by not allowing the people to vote on Gay marriage but instead, they force laws on the people. The same is true with the legalization of abortion. If the people were ever able to vote on the issue, abortion would become illegal almost overnight since much of the country is against it. But, that is how liberal legal activism works, you do not allow the people to vote, you just force laws upon them. Continue reading

God is not a racist, is He?

The atheist claims that God is a racists because He tells the children of Israel not to intermarry with people who are not His children. Does He do this because He does not like people of other races? Or, is there a much deeper spiritual truth to be learned from this teaching on not intermarrying with the Gentiles? You can find the atheist’s argument here. Continue reading

Does the Bible teach that parents are to kill their children for being rude?

I want to write this in response to an atheist who claims that the Bible is absurd because of Its teachings on the parent/child relationship. He claims that the Bible teaches that parents must kill their “rude” children (although he does not define what “rude” means). He puts no effort in to understanding a text from the Bible. Like most atheists, he is quote mining or cherry picking verses and trying to use them against the Bible. Atheists usually ask that you refrain from using the Bible as a source when defending the Bible yet they try and use the Bible against Itself day and night. They have a very obvious double standard (but that is a different topic that we can cover later). Here is the info from the atheist’s blog. Continue reading

Is it possible to be “good” without God?

This is a statement that I hear repeated among atheists. They say, “we can be good/moral without God“. My response to this is, “according to whose goodness or moral standards?” It all depends on your point of reference. If you compare your goodness and moral standards to Stalin or Hitler, then well, I guess you could say that you are “good and moral”. One the other hand, what if you compare your “goodness” to God’s or your “morals” to God’s? Can you do a lot of bad things but as long as you are not as bad as Hitler or Stalin, does that mean that you are “moral” or “good”? When you start shifting the goal posts, it is quite easy to kick a field goal. Continue reading

Mississippi voted to uphold the legal murder of innocent children

If you do not know about the battle that took place in the state of Mississippi this election cycle then I would like to point out the battle over prop 26. Voting no on 26 meant that you were okay with the legal murdering of innocent babies in the womb. Voting yes meant that you understand God’s stance on life and chose to stand with Him. I am sad to say that 60% of the people who voted in the state of Mississippi voted for legal murder and took stance against God. I want to present God’s view of abortion (yes, the Bible talks specifically about abortion) and then call those who took a stance against God to repent publicly so that they can be forgiven and not experience God’s judgment in their lives. Continue reading
