America’s Award-Winning President

I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.” (Barack Obama – April 17th, 2008)

7 years later…

America’s 44th President can add another award to his trophy case thanks to being voted as “Out” magazine’s 2015 “Ally” of the Year.

The “Ally” award is given to an individual who has championed the “rights” of LGBT’s…which definitely includes the new “legalization” of homosexual marriage. And sadly, there’s very few politicians that come even close to rivaling the President’s political agenda in this area of light for darkness and darkness for light (Isaiah 5:20).

I’m sure the President is so proud of his award…err, make that a certain sort of pride in his award.

I wonder if President Obama repeated the whole “God’s in the mix” thing during his acceptance speech? EA

It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, for a throne is established by righteousness.” (Proverbs 16:12)

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” (Proverbs 29:2)

But who’s doing the counting?

Character counts – even the atheist proclaims such. But when it comes to the atheistic version of theological morality, minus God, I often find myself asking, “But who’s doing the counting?”

How can morality even be counted in a system of belief that has its roots in amorality? It’s an oxymoron from the get go. And it’s a pipe- dream with severe leaks! For a system based upon evolution must demand that evolution continue to happen through the avenue that “got us” to where we are as humans to begin with – survival of the fittest. But survival of the fittest isn’t a very positive moral guideline is it? I mean how can a wolf in sheep’s clothing ever be wrong if the wolf is only doing what he evolved to do? If nature does it then it must be right, right? Of course, unless nature is wrong. It’s fuzzy math to say the least!

Humanism says at the end of the day we’re animals but we’re not supposed to act like it. It says character counts but it refuses to add into the equation the fact that animals don’t care about character – and they care even less for math. EA

Freedom Rings And The Death Bell Tolls

Men and women in this country for the last couple of centuries have sacrificed a lot for this nation (a large number giving all) to continue to provide the freedoms and blessings we have as American citizens. The efforts, love and convictions of these leaders, soldiers and citizens have helped shape and form our country into the bastion of liberty that many in the world today desperately want to live in. Taking these facts into consideration, I sadly believe this country has forgotten where an essential element of victory comes from – God!

In Acts 17:26 the Bible reads, “And (God) hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;” The blessings of a nation comes not from the will of man alone, but from the nation’s willingness to recognize and praise God for who He is, and for what He has given them (Acts 17:27). Through the providence of God and the ultimate sacrifice of others, the bells of freedom ring for the ears of some, while the death bells toll for the life of others.

On the contrary, our nation is starting to hear the death bell toll louder and louder under the guise of “ringing freedom.” Many today advocate “freedoms” that are tearing our country apart thread by thread and condemning us. According to some, the Constitution gives a woman the “right” to end the life of her child while “it” is still inside of her. Let her give birth and then kill “it” and she will be charged with murder. According to some, the Constitution gives a person the “right” to look at pornography on the Internet at a public library where children are present, but let them ride down the road viewing the same garbage on a TV screen where the public can see it, and they can be charged with a crime. In some people’s minds the Constitution can make a “Civil Right” trump a moral wrong. The common decency cannot be so common, nor so decent due to liberty???

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial contains the following engraving: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

We are sorely misunderstanding what liberty frees us from and what it frees us for today! If we confuse having liberty with taking liberties then we do so to our own peril! The Bible and history itself shows us that nations with a rotten core will collapse from the inside. If our country insists on ignoring God Almighty, He’ll ring a bell alright, but it won’t be freedoms’!  EA

For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:13-14)

Homophobia!!!

Homophobia” is such a confusing word to me. It is a label used by those who believe that there are no harmful side effects to the promotion and living out of the homosexual lifestyle on our society and it is a label which is used to ridicule anyone who believes that the promotion and living out of the homosexual lifestyle in our society is detrimental on multiple levels. It is used in a manner that makes it sound like the person who believes that homosexuality is unacceptable is actually “suffering from a fearful and IRRATIONAL CONDITION” resulting from an “uneducated bigotry.” Well, let’s get one thing straight: When it comes to the “homophobia that I suffer from,” I am not afraid of homosexuals – I am afraid for them spiritually.

It is sad and a shame when a person compares a sexual choice to the way someone is born. There is no LOGICAL defense that can be given to support the homosexual lifestyle.

First, it is UNNATURAL. Nature itself teaches that the physical act of sex is meant to be something that occurs between the opposite sexes! That’s why there are males and there are females. There is NO procreation that can occur from any homosexual relationship. The entire homosexual relationship is based upon nothing but a perverted form of sex. (more…)

In Search of Life

Science (N.A.S.A.) is currently in the middle of spending astronomical amounts of money in search of life beyond our little blue planet. They have super-telescopes hurdling through space in hopes of catching a glimpse of a “familiar” looking planet. They have sent and are sending hi-tech machines to make photographs, collect soil samples and compile all sorts of data from the planet Mars. Other planets such as Jupiter have been specifically targeted recently too.

Why all the scurrying around from one end of the solar system to the other and beyond? It’s all in search of life. Scientists are chomping at the bit to find the smallest, minutest and most microscopic sized traces of life somewhere other than here.

There’s something funny about that. Sadly, it’s how hypocritical science’s (or maybe some scientists) definition of life can be. If they ever found some microscopic organism in some piece of ice the headlines would proudly and boldly proclaim that LIFE had been discovered. The national news media would talk nonstop about the LIFE that has changed the world. All the talk around the water-cooler would revolve around the LIFE found in outer space. Yes, that little LIFE would be cherished and held in high regard among science’s intellectuals despite its little, tee tiny or even microscopic size.

Oh how wonderful it would be if all of the same people who would shed tears if something happened to that “little living micro-organism” would give the same amount of credence to an unborn child!

Why are so many people willing to disregard and downgrade the LIFE of an unborn child to a choice? Why are so many “educated” people so willing to apply the term “life” to anything but a human embryo?

There is life out there, but He won’t be found with a telescope. And He knows when life on Earth begins and He thinks highly of it (Jeremiah 1:5Matthew 18:6). Have we grown so busy searching for life “out there” that we cannot see the life in front of us anymore? EA
