Love God With All Your Heart: The Greatest Commandment

Love God With All Your Heart: The Greatest Commandment

Dave Daubenmire | Barbwire  “Master, which is the great commandment in the law Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Jesus Christ as quoted in Matthew 22:36 The purpose of this commentary is not to anger you, although I am sure some of you will get angry. I have contended for quite some time that one of the greatest dangers of Christianity comes not from what the Bible teaches, but rather from what we believe and the Bible doesn’t actually teach. So many Christians simply talk in platitudes…repeating a meaningless statement that they heard their pastor, or some other well meaning friend repeat to them. You know how they go…Christians shouldn’t judge…we are all God’s children…God helps those who help themselves…love the sinner and hate the sin…those non-Biblical statements that makes us feel so loving and caring to repeat.

Like them, are we ignoring warnings of God's coming judgment The Bible gives us clear signs of the last days. Did you know the Scriptures say we will see: • Flippant use of God's name• Money-hungry preachers and rampant hypocrisy in the church• Wars and rumors of wars• Denial of a global flood But surely no educated person could believe that Noah and his ark ever really existed.

Christian Conservatives Name The Most Effective Cultural Change Organizations

Christian Conservatives Name The Most Effective Cultural Change Organizations

The American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI) If you want to make a difference in American culture, you are most likely to do it in conjunction with a non-profit organization. That’s one of the striking conclusions from a national survey among Christian conservatives conducted by the American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI). The survey asked people to identify the organizations, of any type, that they believe made the most positive impact on American society during 2016. Christian Non-Profits Got It Done The survey respondents overwhelmingly identified non-profit organizations as the entities making the greatest positive difference in American society last year. Of the five dozen organizations specified by survey respondents, only one of them – Fox News – was a for-profit organization. The survey among SAGE Cons – an acronym for Spiritually Active, Governance Engaged Conservatives – also found that eight out of every ten of the culture-influencing organizations were Christian non-profits.

Pastor Jim Langlois Who is the world's greatest evangelist How did they reach so many people for Christ How can we effectively continue to evangelize this ever changing world Would a flash flood of the Word be as effective as an underground watering system at the roots Who would be the first we should target Is there a way to have such a thing as systemic sustainable evangelism If so, how could we accomplish it and how much money and resources would we need to bring it to pass How much technology will we need Should we be concerned with both salvation and discipleship Is it possible to accomplish both at the same time How many systems, buildings, transportation, and personnel will we need bring it to pass Can it be done through a volunteer system or will we need to hire staff Read More

We Are Looking At The Wrong Ones

We Are Looking At The Wrong Ones

DRUGS DEALERS: Our focus has been on the drug dealers, yes they are the lowest scum, but they are the wrong target. The guilty ones are the Americans that use the drugs. PROSTITUTES: Our laws are against them, but they are the wrong target, the main effort should be against the boys and men who pay them for sex- the fornicators and adulators. ABORTIONIST: Yes, the abortionist is the bottom feeder of the medical profession, they do the actual killing of the baby, but they are the wrong target.  We should focus on the girls and women who bring their babies in to be killed by them. MALE MARINES: Yes, the male marines that look at naked women marine’s photos with or without permission are being involved with pornography which is not good. However, the trouble is with the naked women- just what did they have in mind when they posed for the picture These women should be discharged for lack of common sense. (Assume the pictures were taken without coercion.) Greene Hollowell Richmond, VA Read More

Christian Voters’ Impact on the Recent Election

Christian Voters’ Impact on the Recent Election

Dr. Mark Beliles’ article on the recent presidential election gives us time to develop Christian leaders and urges us not to waste our votes. Dr. Mark Beliles | ATC The recent presidential election provided interesting insight into the impact of Christians. Trump's surprising victory with over 62.7 million votes was comprised of no less than 43 million Christians - over two thirds of his total votes! Of these, about 24 million votes were from white Evangelicals, 15 million were from white Catholics, and 4 million were from Hispanic and Black Christians. About half as many Christians voted for Clinton and of these about half were white Catholics and the other half were Blacks and Hispanics. Of her 65.4 million votes only about a third were Christians (and only about a 9 million were Evangelicals). The ratio among Evangelicals (black and Hispanic included) is about 3 to 1, and among all Christians (including Catholics) is about 2 to 1 in favor of Trump. The gap of over 20 million Christian votes in favor of Trump and the Republican Party far exceeds any other demographic advantage by far, and in the battleground states, the turnout of Christian voters was even higher than in other areas and especially explains how Trump won the most electoral votes.

Greatest Hope When Life Gets You Down

Greatest Hope When Life Gets You Down

Benham Brothers Easter weekend is over, we’ve eaten too many chocolate eggs, and now it’s time to get back to the grind. Well, at least Jason ate too many eggs. The Mondays after holiday weekends are usually the hardest ones, because all the festivities and fun have come to an end – and the boss needs that report done, your son needs help with his homework, your daughter is late for soccer practice and the news of the day just seems so bad all the time. Dang, where is the hope There’s just a lot going on in life, and it can really get you down, if you don’t fully understand what we just celebrated. Easter is far more than a tradition to be venerated. It’s a truth to be celebrated – a truth that will set our hearts free to live in total victory, no matter what’s going on around us. Read More
