Promoting Godly Relationships, Civility, and Healthy Living

Promoting Godly Relationships, Civility, and Healthy Living

Introduction: While there isn’t one “Christian” lifestyle, there are certain pathways a Christian should aspire towards in life. God asks this of us for His own glory and our own good. In this section, we will first discuss topics of daily life, such as our personal relationships and civility, looking to the Bible as our guide. Then, we will turn to characteristics of negative lifestyles, such as racist beliefs and behavior, vulgarity and obscenity, and body and mind abuse (smoking, alcohol, and drugs). We hope God will speak to you about His plan for your life and how that corresponds to living a healthy lifestyle as the Bible describes. Read More

Godless People do Godless Things

Godless People do Godless Things

Racism is first and foremost a spiritual problem.

Michael Giere | 

If you're like me, the last ninety days have been incredibly emotional and heartbreaking in the catalog of lifetime experiences, as we witness the national and worldwide Wuhan coronavirus calamity unfold, not just represented in the lives lost, but in the massive upheaval and economic destruction across the world.

Equally bitter is to see the pandemic diminishing behind us, and what it tells us about ourselves, our leaders, our science, and our faith. It will be a greater tragedy than the virus itself if raw emotions obscure the lessons of the self-inflicted and unnecessary destruction of economies and irrelevant lock-downs, denying us of the wisdom of perspective.

A Kingdom for All: The Gospel of Luke and the Birth of Jesus

A Kingdom for All: The Gospel of Luke and the Birth of Jesus

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.

Black Nationalist Hate Group Praised by Media Shot Up Kosher Market

Black Nationalist Hate Group Praised by Media Shot Up Kosher Market

Daniel Greenfield | Sultan Knish

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.

Media’s Inaccurate Reporting on Ferguson Increases Racism

Media’s Inaccurate Reporting on Ferguson Increases Racism

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


Equal Rights Amendment: Its Consequences and Attempts to Resurrect it 37 Years Too Late

Equal Rights Amendment: Its Consequences and Attempts to Resurrect it 37 Years Too Late

“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


For an Errant Education

For an Errant Education

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)

 

By Tabitha Korol

 

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 Sludge Sisters

The Sludge Sisters

By Joan Swirsky | CFP  ( Bio and Archives)

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


How Should Christians Think about Immigration Amnesty?

How Should Christians Think about Immigration Amnesty?

While the Bible teaches us to be kind to the sojourner or “resident alien,” it also teaches that kindness to the sojourner ought not to be injustice to local citizens and their unique culture.

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

March 19th Event: Rise Up and Support Israel, Fight Antisemitism NOW!

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.”

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.  Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Read More
