Let The People Decide Marriage Issues

Let The People Decide Marriage Issues

Advocates for extending marriage rights to same-sex couples think they are on a roll with New York State's action.

Their heavy editing of only The Radiance Foundation’s perspective, while preserving every word spoken by Reverend Carlton Veazey,revealed NPR’s typical liberal bias and uninformed defense of Planned Parenthood. The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice CEO’s closing remarks (nearly two minutes versus mine which were cut down to 15 seconds) were just a continuation of pro-abortion histrionics by the historically challenged.

Use of Alcohol, Tobacco & Drugs and Scripture

Use of Alcohol, Tobacco & Drugs and Scripture

The Assemblies of God, USA - This document reflects commonly held beliefs based on scripture which have been endorsed by the church's Commission on Doctrinal Purity and the Executive Presbytery. Why have holiness and Pentecostal churches advocated abstinence concerning the use of alcohol, tobacco, and narcotics (drugs) Why not allow moderation First Corinthians 6:19,20 has historically been held in high regard by holiness and Pentecostal Christians. "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." This and other passages warning against drunkenness have been considered sufficient reason for advocating complete abstinence from the use of alcohol, tobacco, or narcotics. Read More

On Christian Civility

On Christian Civility

Brigadier General Henry Martyn Robert published a book in 1876. That book would later go on to become the standard rule book for procedure in organized assemblies in the United States and beyond. That book is called Robert’s Rules of Order. Christians like things like order because we believe we have been fashioned by and after a Creator who desires order. The Creator God established the foundations of the heavens and the earth and all that lives in the air, on the land, and in the waters in a specific order. Read More

Moral Matters

Moral Matters

Godly Relationships - It's Up To Us To Teach Our Kids There's only one school that will teach your kids to live moral lives these days. As turbulent as the late 1960s were when my children were in school, I’m almost glad I don’t have to raise kids today. Yes, the sexual revolution, questioning authority, rolling around in the mud at Woodstock -- all the hallmarks of '60s culture -- were bad enough. But they were just the seeds of a sad harvest our culture is reaping right now. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that many of today’s political, academic, and media elites are products of the '60s and that  they are in the vanguard of the assault on traditional marriage, traditional morality, and the traditional family.

Another page examines medical aspects of marijuana use. (See related articles on Godly Relationships) Read More
