Luke Ch 1-2
The first in a five-part series on the Gospel of Luke. We explore the amazing events surrounding the birth of Jesus. The humble conditions of his family and their low status in Israelite society foreshadow the upside-down nature of Jesus’ kingdom.
Luke documents how Jesus expands God's kingdom and covenant by creating a new Israel that includes the poor, outcasts and others to whom Jesus brings restoration and reverses their life circumstances as He gives them freedom and release from the tyranny of evil and sin.
Throughout the book, we see that Jesus is indeed the messianic king, but He will reign over Israel by suffering. His actions usher in an upside down kingdom marked by self-giving love, and He challenges his disciples to follow His example and share in His ministry.

The New York Times called them "sidewalk ministers" who practice "tough love." The paper quoted Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center who described them as victims of racism and claimed that they were non-violent.
The Washington Post, in its own puff piece on the Black Hebrew Israelites, also falsely described them as non-violent, and concluded that, "Israelite street preaching in parts of D.C., Philadelphia and New York is commonplace, a familiar if odd accent to city life."
The odd accent to city life in Jersey City came amid a hail of bullets as two members of the racist black nationalist hate group opened fire in the JC Supermarket. Despite initial claims by the media and the authorities that the Jewish market had not been targeted, David Anderson and Francine Graham ignored passerby on Martin Luther King Dr, to get to the store and kill as many Jewish people as they could.

The continual negative reporting of the Ferguson killing is a prime reason for racial tensions to increase on the part of whites. Only by reading deeper in the articles do you see the justification for officer’s actions. Tragic as Brown’s death is, his belligerent behavior was the cause. This was seen in the video that showed him stealing items and threatening the clerk with bodily harm and then disobeying and assaulting the officer and trying to get his gun. Read More
“Equality of rights under law shall not be denied or abridged … on account of sex.”
The ERA would require drafting women if men are drafted, and fighting in front-line ground combat even without a draft. ERA would require tax-paid abortions, no abortion restrictions for all nine months of pregnancy, and penalize doctors/nurses opposed to abortion.
ERA would end women/girls (and men’s) privacy rights in homeless shelters, prisons, hospitals, locker rooms, gyms. Men/boys could demand to play on women/girls’ sports teams and effectively end women’s sports scholarships. The ERA would end tax exemptions for religious schools and churches with male-only clergy.
The ERA lost in 1982 when 38 states failed to approve it by the Congressional deadline. Some Virginia politicians say the ERA can be revived 37 years after its time expired. They are wrong. Here's why: Read More
Editor's Note: Modern day education is off the rails, omitting God and the ethics from the moral law. There is no morality without Almighty God, as Psalm 119: 33-36 states:
God. Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes; and I will keep it to the end. Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart. Lead me in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it. Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain! (DOWNLOAD LINK FOR EXPOSITION: PSALM 119 33-36)

We saw the changes coming.
We heard all the historic revisionism about Israel and the boycott/divestment/sanctions of the only democratic state in the Middle East; the anti-Zionist textbooks and programs that took root in colleges and universities across the country; and the assault upon the vulnerable K-12 students.
We learned that schools were discouraging little ones from having a “best friend,” that they would be isolated in front of a computer every day, with the adults’ role changing from teacher to facilitator, to increase learning frustration. Read More

“The LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.” (Isaiah 61:1)

Throughout the ages, Jews have been the targets of genocidal forces both large and small, educated and ignorant, liberal and conservative, pagan and religious.
Other small sects and religions have never inspired the particular psychotic animus that Jews have because they never threatened the larger populace as Jews have with blazing green-eyed jealousy–the most powerful emotion of the human species. In fact, Proverb 14 states: “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy makes the bones rot.” Read More
Sanctuary cities. Caravans. Children without adults. Asylum seekers. DACA “dreamers.” Travel bans. Voter fraud. Escalating drugs, crime and murder. No single issue is dividing America, including Christians, more than immigration. Read More
Christ In Culture/salt & Light Meeting- March 19
@ 6:30 @ Fairmount Christian Church
6502 Creighton Rd. Mechanicsville, VA
The above creation was unveiled Sunday, March 3, 2019 at Belgium’s most celebrated carnival of Aalst.
The parade featured these two huge puppets depicting pink-clad Haredi Orthodox Jews. One of them leers while smoking a cigar, a rat perched on his shoulder.
Against a synagogue facade, the puppets have money bags at their feet. A platform following the float carried other puppets that danced to a song about “bulging coffers” and “Jews getting extra fat.”

”...the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They’ve become an anti-Jewish party.” —President Donald J. Trump
”...the chickens of the Democratic Party are coming home to roost…maybe then they will also realize that anti-Semitism, like most cancers, is fatal unless it’s removed.” —Michael Goodwin, NY Post
Most people thought antisemitism had been relegated to the trash bin of history after Hitler and millions of his willing German-Polish-Austrian-French-Swiss-Belgium executioners—with savage premeditation—murdered six-million Jews in the 1930s and ‘40s, and the world—significantly after the fact—seemed to wake up to the psychotic, irrational, obsessed nature of Jew hatred.
