{February 20, 2009}   The Call: To Fast

A 40-day fast. 

I want to know who are the tens of thousands of people that follow this man? Seriously, look at his body language, something is mentally wrong with this man. Lou Engle.

Fasting means starvation which equals HALLUCINATIONS…not God talking to you.

Are these the sign of the times?

steve-wuThe pastor of Willow Creek Chicago — the city campus of the evangelical mega-church Willow Creek Community Church — has resigned and admitted to “sexual impurity,” a church spokesman said. The pastor, Rev. Steve Wu, could not be reached, and the church would not specify what took place just a statement Tuesday by church officials admitting to “sexual impurity”

Wu, 43, began pastoring Willow Chicago in 2006. It was the fifth campus of Willow Creek Community Church – the fourth largest mega-church in the country with 22,500 attendees, according to Outreach magazine’s 2008 list. The mega-church, founded by the Rev Bill Hybels, currently has six locations throughout Illinois.

The church also stated that he may go through a “restoration process”. I wonder if this will be like the one Ted Haggard went through, which we all know, has made him realize that his sexuality is a “complicated” one. 

I wrote about this before, there is nothing good about a church that is said to be a “mega-church”. What those types of church come down to is BUSINESS and MONEY. In due time, the true colors come out and they fall hard.



{February 16, 2009}   Christian Student Sues College

There is a lawsuit alleging a teacher discriminated against a students beliefs when he censored a classroom speech on God and marriage. The allegation also inludes a statement that he didn’t get a grade but a statement by the teacher, “ask God what your grade is”. The student also alleges the teacher called him a “fascist bastard” mid-way through his speech last November and refused to let him finish.

The student, Jonathan Lopez, said that midway through his speech, when he quoted a dictionary definition of marriage and recited a pair of Bible verses, professor John Matteson cut him off and would not allow him to finish. Lopez is seeking $5,000 in damages.

Ok, it sounds more like a sermon than a speech. The Dean of the school stated that students were offended by Lopez’s “speech”.

At what point does a Christian realize that if someone is interested in the “word of God” then a church is sought for that message?



It seems like support for the LGBT community is considered a radical change to America. When they mentioned the 80 year old grandmother, I did a search. All the Christian blogs had articles on this 80 year old grandmother. This is what I found on the CBN News site:

73-year-old Arlene Elshinnawy was amongst 11 Christians that were arrested and charged under Pennsylvania’s hate crimes law (the Ethnic Intimidation Act), for “preaching the Gospel”. The arrests took place at a homosexual event. Keep in mind, the “homosexual events” are events that are City permitted ($). These people decided that they were going to enter the event and hold up their signs of condemnation and have a guy preaching through a loud bullhorn. To many, this is preaching, to those of us on the other side of the coin, WE DON’T WANT TO HEAR THAT AT AN EVENT THAT WE PAY MONEY TO GET IN. I looked for the incident on youtube and found a “re-creation” video from an organization called “Repent America”, which is the same organization that this grandmother was involved with.

Now, according to the CBN News site, Outfest organizers said that the Repent America protesters were trying to disrupt their event, were name-calling, and were trying to cause a riot. They also stated on this site that the answer of the Outfest organizers as to why the Christians were arrested and not the homosexuals holding the pink angels was: “Because we were given a direct order by the Philly Police Dept. to break our human chain. We obeyed. When they were given a direct order by the Police Dept. to move north on 13th Street, they decided not to.” Which, as you can see on the re-creation video, the Christians chose not to obey the authorities.

I don’t understand why the Christians always dramatize incidents and choose to lie when they state they are followers of Jesus.

If history showed that people were not discriminated against, because of their sexuality, then laws would not have to be set, but that isn’t the case. People have been killed, fired and mistreated, which is why our new President is choosing to enact laws that will make sure everyone is treated equally. Christians making a big deal of this shows that they would much rather discriminate and demonstrate bigotry which is ironic since the bible has specific scriptures on loving your neighbor.

Here is the “Agenda” that is causing such concern.




Here we go again. Dobson is on Beck’s show and they are saying what was being said on the internet is B.S. If that is the case, Beck, your religion is full of LIARS, because the MORMON TIMES was the first that broke the news.

Dobson, you are calling the Underground Apologetics liars too. The statement prepared by your people was as follows:

When contacted Friday, a Focus on the Family worker at the ministry in Colorado Springs, Colo. confirmed that the article had been pulled and read a prepared statement for callers who had called about the Beck article:

“You are correct to note that Mr. Beck is a member of the Mormon church, and that we did not make mention of this fact in our interview with him. We do recognize the deep theological difference between evangelical theology and Mormon theology, and it would have been prudent for us at least to have pointed out these differences. Because of the confusion, we have removed the interview from Citizenlink.”

A-huh, sure. Beck you are being used again. Dobson is just making sure you guys are united against the Atheists. Then when he gets his way, you are going to get kicked to the curb like last time.

Dobson, again, why don’t you follow the bible on mixing yourself with what you are against? Just proving how hypocrisy leads Focus on the Family.

2 Corinthians 6:14 14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

 



{January 16, 2009}   Are you meek?

Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

meek

–adjective, -er, -est.

1. humbly patient or docile, as under provocation from others.
2. overly submissive or compliant; spiritless; tame.
3. Obsoletegentle; kind.

 

What does this scripture mean? It is safe to deduce that Jesus’ kingdom is for those who are meek. A meek person is gentle/kind, tenderhearted, patient, and submissive/compliant. Those who are meek forgive, restore others, and make peace.

Would a person referring to Rev. Gene Robinson as the “token” homosexual be a meek person? Would a person stating “no one thought he was a reverend”, be a meek person?

The hot topic for this week was the announcement of Rev. Gene Robinson to give the invocation at the inaugural opening ceremony at the Sunday afternoon concert on the Mall. Run a search on the blogs and you will find lots of opinions on him and how people truly feel about him. I just read one, and what the person wrote reminded me of this bible scripture about the “meek”. The funny thing is, Rick Warren, the “mega church” pastor is quoted as praising Obama for selecting Robinson, saying the president-elect “has again demonstrated his genuine commitment to bringing all Americans of goodwill together in search of common ground. I applaud his desire to be the president of every citizen.” Now, Warren, a “man of cloth” didn’t sit there and preach about the abominations of homosexuality or make a comment about the “Rev.” not really being a “Rev.” yet those that are calling themselves Christians, followers of Jesus, are up in arms.

In Jesus time, he didn’t condemn those that didn’t agree with him. On the other hand the Pharisees would lash out at anyone that offended them. That is what you see today. Those that profess to follow Jesus and take pride in calling themselves CHRISTians are the ones that are quick to lash out when they feel offended. They are quick to condemn people to hell. They are quick to make remarks that really, if analyzed, Jesus would not find impressive in the least bit.

Homosexuals have been killed, spit on, have had their items vandalized, have had their rights taken away, have suffered discrimination and continue to suffer through these types of persecutions, all by CHRISTIANS. Who would you say are the meek?

Examine yourself to see whether you are truly meek.




{January 15, 2009}   Ann Coulter on Single Mothers

She blames the “liberals”, but honestly, what about dead beat dads? “Liberal Victims”? WTF?! By her own account, this is what she is:

I’m a Christian first and a mean-spirited, bigoted conservative second, and don’t you ever forget it.-E&P Staff. “Coulter: Press Either ‘Incompetent’ or Full of ‘Left-Wing Bias'”. Editor and Publisher. July 31, 2006.

Ok, so with that quoted, I can say, what a bigoted, mean-spirited, A-Hole. I like to point out that she considers herself a Christian, I wonder what kind? She has never answered the question as to what type of religion she belongs to. Is her way of being and talking something that Jesus would be proud of? I was raised by both biological parents, of whom are still married. My sisters are all married and raising kids with their husbands and I do not have kids, but I really find it insulting that she turns around and makes a statement such as that. The majority of single mothers are left that way from dead beat fathers. For those that are anti-abortion, here is the type of society that has come up, single parent homes, mainly raised by mothers. Most Christians not only are anti-abortion, but also do not promote any type of sexual contraceptives, so her reasoning of this being a “LIBERAL” problem is really far fetched.

Now, in regards to her personal life, she is known to have been engaged several times, yet never married and her last relationship was with a “liberal Democrat”. She is nothing but hype. She knows how to play the media to promote drama to sell books. 

Another joke of a “Christian”.



{January 6, 2009}   Christian Comments

From The Christian Post: Daniel Paul Tue Jan 06, 2009 7:41 pm

“Will gays be happy with a legalized union that will provide all the rights of marriage except for the name of marriage?”

Gays hate the true gospel. The one that believes the Bible as written. They will not be happy until they have crushed each and every Bible believing Christian.

Here’s a case and point. We don’t think gays should parent. After all, if gays should be parents then why can’t they have their own kids? If “God made them that way” they why don’t they want to live within the boundries of how they were created? They pick and choose what they want to believe like a pile of play dough when my kids don’t keep the colors separate. It’s just one big mishmash. They don’t even stay within their own logic and then say we’re laughable!!!

Ok, “THE GAY AGENDA” (da, da, daaa!) here at work, by this Christian comment. Most “gays” are spiritual people. Most “gays” aren’t on a mission to destroy Christians, to destroy the bible, or to destroy anything. For the most parts, gays can have their own kids…think about it, moron.

How about this statement: “MOST CHRISTIANS WANT TO FORCE HOMOSEXUALS TO LIVE WITHIN THEIR BOUNDRIES”

Luke 6:45-The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
