When a Nation Boos at its Creator

Did you see the appalling display recently at the democratic convention?  If you didn’t you should.  There have been several attempts to downplay it… but the reality of the world in which we live was rather vividly exposed.

 If you have any respect for Christianity at all, you need to listen to this. HERE's the link...

In a nutshell the Democratic party leaders have long been embarrassed by many things that Christianity has to say. The scriptures have been downplayed and an atheistic amorality has been slowly taking its place for many years. This time around they tried to eliminate the last mention of God in their platform document.  They tried to do it behind the scenes without anyone knowing.
The same convention that tried to “dump” God also sponsored an Islamic Junah…

One Christian’s thoughts on Chik-fil-a, Sodom & Gomorrah, and The Culture War Currently Underway in the USA.

Over the last month we have seen in dramatic terms how intolerant evil is of good.  One man spoke of his faith in the Bible as the Word of God, and the traditional God given definition of marriage.  There were immediate calls for boycotts etc. against the entire company because of one man’s faith in God.
Here is his initial statement, the "Chick fil a Anti Gay Statement":

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say ‘we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”

Have you noticed how “intolerant” and vicious the “tolerance” movement is?  Have you noticed the vicious attacks that Christians regularly endure simply because they are Christians?  The fact is that the war between light and darkness has been going on since the Garden of Eden.

We have been an incredibly “blessed” nation as we have purposely submitted ourselves as a people to the God of heaven.  “In God we trust” has actually been the underpinnings of our society.

So… how does a “blessed” people become a “cursed” people?  Clearly if we embrace same sex marriage as we have already embraced infanticide we are one step further down the path to Sodom.

Sometimes we overlook the obvious.  This process of “blessed” to “cursed” has occurred many times in the history of the world. Israel was a “blessed” nation that became “cursed” multiple times.

Sodom was a “blessed” community as well. Consider Lot’s assessment…

America's First Contact with Islam

A nation whose single greatest influence was Christianity
makes “first contact” with the lands of Islam…

In practice America’s first contact with the lands of Islam came through their trading of slaves among other things while in the colonial stage.   The Islamic warriors could not hold the interior of Africa largely due to the geography of the interior.  Over time the interior of Africa became viewed as a virtually inexhaustible supply of slaves for the Islamic countries.   The slave markets buzzed and routes were established going east (to Arabia, Persia etc.) and west (to the Americas) on a huge scale.
Britain’s massive naval presence in the Mediterranean (and elsewhere) protected America for the most part from becoming slaves… though white slaves were highly prized especially in the harems.  Most of Islam’s white slaves were imported from the Islamic frontiers bordering Russia.

That all changed with the declaration of independence.  America was no longer under the protection of the British flag.  The Barbary States along the northern coast of Africa, Tripoli (AKA Libya) in particular began capturing and selling American ships back to the US on a massive scale.  This tribute money from “unbelievers” to avoid enslavement eventually reached the unbelievable sum of 20% of the entire US budget.

It appears that 10 of the first 11 Americans seized died in slavery. It took awhile for the Americans to take the threat seriously.  (It sounds a lot like today…)

 In 1787 alone eleven American vessels were plundered and 121 sailors were taken hostage. They demanded one million dollars in ransom from the fledgling democracy.

From Conception to Birth in the Womb, Visualized

Today’s offering is going to be very unique in our mailings.  I am simply going to give you a link to a secular video artist’s presentation of the growth of the human body. 

I have no idea of the man’s religious beliefs or his stand on abortion. He presents an incredible animation based on cat scans etc. No gross stuff, only the beauty of God’s creative work inside the womb...
