There is a lot of discussion about politics going on right now because of all that has transpired in our country over the past year. Many of us have grown weary of hearing about it. I had a conversation with a guy the other day about Christians and Politics. I mentioned that I am a Conservative when it comes to politics because I am a student of the Bible and a born again Christian. He mentioned that he is just a Christian and was not concerned with politics. Continue reading

Just a warning here in the beginning, I will be on a soapbox for a portion of this article. Now, here goes . . . Continue reading
Well, I thought I would finally weigh in on the gay marriage ordeal. We are seeing the ramifications of an unjust “law” forced upon the majority of the people, based on judicial activism. Kim Davis is in the spotlight at the moment. There are 3 major reactions that people seem to have regarding this case.
I. The secular view
I am worried about my generation and the generations that have followed me. The reason that I am worried is because we have a couple of generations that have been trained by our State run schools in the art of “belief” instead in the art of “thinking”. Our public schools no longer offer a classical education, an education that includes logic, reasoning skills, and debate. Instead, our kids are taught WHAT to think instead of HOW to think. This is very dangerous because people who do not know how to think are easily subjugated and controlled. I would like to demonstrate this with a hot topic that is being discussed all over our society.
I am a minister of the Gospel and have served people from all kinds of different races, languages, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds etc. Each one has its uniqueness yet each one is basically the same. Sin nature is dominate in all cultures and manifests itself in many of the same ways, over and over again. I would like to show you a snippet of a conversation that I recently had with some people of my generation and younger. It frightens me because of the deceptiveness of the people. They are deceptive because they have been deceived. They do not know how to think and when challenged, their responses sound more like 5 year old kids on the playground than mature adults. I don’t think that this is by accident. This is the process of being taught what to think instead of how to think. I want to help but from the responses, HOW? The really scary part is that as they have kids, they are going to pass this process on to them and it will get worse with each new generation. I have addressed this problem before with voting.

For Logan P., yes, there is a difference between the 3 distinct things. Abortion ends a life.
I know, I know, many think that religion and politics do not mix. Those same people usually do not realize that before modern politics ever came on the scene, God’s Word spoke loud and clear on important subjects. Just to give a few examples, long before the pro choice pro life debate, God spoke clearly on the right to life. You can see it in His Word. To claim that your religious convictions should have no place in the pro life pro choice debate is ludicrous. This debate was settled long ago by God, way before modern politics tried to highjack it. The same goes for same sex marriages. God defined marriage as being between one man and one woman from the very beginning. He also condemned homosexuality (along with all the other sexual sins practiced by people today). The final verdict stands on immigration. Many claim that the Bible speaks of no such issue (just like they claim that the Bible does not mention abortion, He does by describing the act instead of just using a word because we can manipulate words too easily). Although you will not find the word “immigration” in the Bible, there are some principles taught in the Bible that would apply to immigration. Continue reading
Good day. As a Christian, did you wake up this morning feeling a bit discouraged at how people could vote for a pro abortion, pro gay marriage, pro forced charity candidate? I did not because I have been talking with some “Christians” over the last few days about the issues and for whom a genuine Christian should cast his or her vote. The Bible does not name a candidate or a party because they change like the wind. The Bible explains the values and character of a person who should lead a country. I was a little discouraged to hear some of the justifications that people use for voting against life and traditional marriage. Here are a couple of those “righteous” excuses. Continue reading
With the upcoming elections, there are many people who are arguing about who we should vote for and why for the office of president of the USA. Some people claim that Christians are not to be involved in politics and voting is optional, not an obligation. I would like to take a look at the Word of God and see if a Christian is obligated to vote or not and if the Bible teaches us for whom to cast our votes.
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
