The church, for lack of knowledge, has abandoned its autonomy for the sake of becoming a beneficiary of the state (federal state). They must have the courage to recover their autonomy, exercise their immunity, and not abide a 'civil' law that violates both revealed and natural law. John Marshall, in Marbury v. Madison, said that a 'civil' law that is repugnant to the Constitution is void. John Marshall was merely reiterating a maxim earlier published by men like sirs Edward Coke and William Blackstone who said any positive law (civil statute) that violates revealed and natural law is void.
During a recent study of God’s word I came upon this verse,
Isaiah 56:10, “His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.”
Dr. Wayne Grudem cites this very verse in his latest book, “Politics According To The Bible” subtitled, “A Comprehensive Resource for Understanding Modern Political Issues in Light of Scripture.” Page 570, “The Hebrew prophet Isaiah knew this had happened with the nation of Israel long ago, he said, His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. (Isa. 56:10)”
Atheists Convert to Christianity: Impacted by I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist College Seminars Because of your support, I have the privilege of recording two TV shows per month, a radio show every Saturday, and speaking to live audiences much more often (58 presentations since January including 12 I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist seminars at colleges). Many of our hundred or so CIA graduates are busy as well. It is often difficult to measure our impact in this blur of activity. But two testimonies we just received from CIA graduates Allen Hainline in Dallas and Eric Chabot in Ohio serve as evidence of how God is blessing our work and how important your support is.
The stage is set. Christians in Islamic Africa and the Islamic-dominated middle east are on the chopping block and barely a peep is heard from the left-leaning media.
So much for the Arab Spring rebels seeking freedom. They were seeking freedom all right, freedom to kill, pillage and ethnically cleanse without reprisals.
Little attention is given in the media to the new crises being suffered by Christians in Islamic nations. With the de facto backing that the United States government has provided the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and other places, they are doing exactly what their manifestos have predicted which is to fundamentally Islamize the region. To do that, is to oust non-Muslims.
The religious left views capitalism as the root of a rapacious greed that causes men to exploit and even destroy the natural environment in exchange for financial profit. To combat these forces, religious leftists commonly anoint themselves as stewards of God's earth, committed to defending its air, water, animals, plants, and natural resources from the ravages of free-market economies – especially America's. (They have had less to say about the fact that China, the old Soviet Union, and the former Communist states of Eastern and Central Europe were responsible for pollution on a scale that dwarfed anything ever observed in the Western world.)
This section of DiscoverTheNetworks examines the worldviews and activities of individuals who seek to advance the doctrines of the religious left. (For a fuller discussion of those doctrines, click here.) The RESOURCES column on the right side of this page contains a link to the section where profiles of these individuals can be found. It also contains links to articles, essays, books, and videos that explore, in depth, the following:
Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) was founded in 1947 by Eleanor Roosevelt, John Kenneth Galbraith, Walter Reuther, Arthur Schlesinger, and Reinhold Niebuhr, “to keep the New Deal dream … alive for generations to come”―i.e., to promote “liberal politics, liberal policies, and a liberal future.” Closely tied to Democratic Party politics and agendas, ADA boasts that it “has played critical roles in every Democratic presidential campaign since Harry Truman's, and has provided scores of senior advisors to Democratic Presidents, Senators, and Congressmen over the years.” The organization claims to consist of “thousands of members,” whom it urges “to lobby their Senators and Representatives” on issues of political and social import.
College is a dangerous place for men. They are not only a minority but they are victimized by discriminatory and unconstitutional anti-male rules. ·
In another striking proof that the Obama Administration is totally manipulated by feminists, the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights sent out a 19-page "DCL" (Dear Colleague Letter) to colleges and universities that should make men fear attending college at all. The letter adopts the feminist theory that in all sexual controversies or accusations, the man is guilty unless he proves himself innocent.
Editor's Note: The Church, the leadership and their people are being disobedient to God and the proof is all around us. Pastors have refused to stand against abortion, political corruption, and the schemes of the wicked, when will the patience of God run out..?
I do not think it too strong or sensational to say that we are witnessing the collapse of Western civilization. Across the Western world, the fruits of apostasy and secularism are manifesting themselves in overwhelmingly destructive ways.
If the Christian has no assurance that God will triumph from the way the world appears to be going, one would be better off hedging one’s bets by siding with the Devil or sitting the whole thing out all together. There are those that attempt to do just that.
Atheism is the worldview that believes that God does not exist. Those embracing this perspective tend to do so over both objective and existential reasons.
Folks, the signs of the times are clear. Is anyone in this country reading them?
During the course of any given month, publishers send me dozens of books to review. I don’t get the time I’d like to even page through most of them, but the other day one caught my eye. It’s called “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon.”
The clock is ticking. The United States is on the verge of default. Congress and the president seem unable to come together and find an agreement avoiding an economic catastrophe.
How in the world did we get into this fix? Well, it didn’t happen overnight. It’s been coming for a generation. For years, fiscal conservatives have warned about the dangers of out-of-control borrowing and spending, but current and previous presidents and congresses have ignored them, rolling up a massive national debt.
Every indication suggests that America is becoming increasingly secular. However, if we mean increasingly secular in the sense that more and more people are now irreligious, secularism has a long way to go. In fact, 78.4 percent of Americans still describe themselves as Christian and ninety-one percent say they believe in God, according to a 2011 Gallup survey. Only 1.4 percent of Americans identify themselves as atheists and another 2.4 percent claim to be agnostic, according to the latest Pew Forum research. Granted, assent to belief in God can (and often does) include those completely unrelated to faith in Jesus Christ and nominal Christians, but that is not my point.
