REGISTER TO VOTE, HELP REGISTER OTHERS ALSO TO SEND OBAMA HOME THIS NOVEMBER.

This presidential election is the most important of our life time. Since this is the case, we want the next president to have a landslide win and a mandate from the American people. The only way we can achieve this is to make sure we are registered to vote, and get like-minded friends, colleagues, and family members registered to vote. The website wallbuilders.com/vote/ has a special tool that you can use to check to see if your friends, colleagues, and family are registered, and you can double-check your own registration status. Go there and check quickly! Pledge to get others to register also. Lets send Obama the socialist packing this November!

Glenn Beck’s Restoring Love – Dallas, Texas – July 28th 2012


Glenn Beck has recently announced that he has chosen a theme song for Restoring Love in Dallas TX on July 28th 2012. The song is named “Hold us together” by Matt Maher. It is an uplifting song with very poignant lyrics. My wife and I initially had signed up for tickets to this event, however the economy is too slow for us to be able to make it there. We had spot number 667 in line for pre-buy tickets. We were able to attend Restoring Honor in Washington D.C. on August 28th, 2010 (which happened to be our 3rd year anniversary since the day we met). Below are some pictures of that event.

Target Comes Out of the Closet for Gay Marriage


This photo provided by Target Corp. shows one of the T-shirts being sold to raise money for a group working to defeat a gay marriage constitutional ban in Minnesota.

Target Corporation, based in Minnesota has thrown its hat into the gay ‘marriage’ debate. They have begun selling t-shirts to support a LGBT activist group in their home state to help raise money to combat a gay ‘marriage’ amendment banning the act. Much like amendment 1 that just passed in North Carolina, defining marriage as legal union between one man and one woman, and stating that this would be the only type of marriage that would be recognized in the state of North Carolina.

The t-shirts will raise up to $120,000.00 for the Family Equality Council, of Washington. They will be pumping the money into the initiative that will combat the passage of the constitutional amendment. You may recall Target, just two years ago took a bashing by gay rights groups for donating $150,000 to then Republican candidate for Governor of Minnesota, Tom Emmer.

The spokesperson for Minnesota for Marriage, Chuck Darrell said, “Target is attacking traditional marriage, which is an incredibly misguided thing for them to have done”. There are four different designs available. The t-shirt pictured above was designed by Gwen Steffani, of the once upon a time pop group “No Doubt”. You will note, that on the t-shirt are two things that originate with God, the sign of the rainbow and the word love. The Holy Bible, in Genesis  9:13 states, that God did set his bow in the clouds as a token of the covenant that God made between Him and the Earth, that He would not destroy it again with a flood. The Bible also says that God is love in 1st John 4:8 He that loveth not,knoweth not God; for God is love.

So if were to understand this correctly. Two years ago it was politically incorrect to give $150,000 to a pro business Republican candidate. But two years later it’s perfectly ok to have the same retailer sell your t-shirts to support your sociopolitical cause?

This has the “Rev.” Jesse Jackson written all over it. Even if he had nothing to do with it. It looks like Jackson because this is how his organisation Rainbow Push works. Threaten a picket, boycott or a public media smear campaign, and then when they buckle and give in, now you make them accept and support your initiatives.

I have never been one for boycotts. But, what I am for is a calm quiet vote with our dollars. You see, Ronald Reagan said it best, “If you don’t like the policies where you are, you can vote with your feet”. What he meant was if your state is screwed up, you can move to a better one. If you’re a frequent Target shopper, you have the choice to vote with your dollar. If this move by Target against over 5000 years of God sanctioned marriage between a man and a woman upsets you, you can decide to put your money into a store that does agree with your values and principles.

Now for those who would find fault with this article, and be angered that I would write such things. Your anger is misplaced. You are angered with a Holy God, not me. This is America, you have every right to your opinion, just as I do mine and I welcome your comments.

SUNDAY SERMON SERIES – A Woman Taken In Adultery – John 8:1-19


St. Johns Gospel Chapter 8 "A wpman taken in adultery

The Gospel According to John 8:1-19

1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Jesus Lifts up the Woman

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

This scripture has many lessons that we can take from it.  It is multi-faceted.  With the media ignoring the dangers of Islam, and slandering Christianity any chance they can. I figured the attempted stoning of the woman taken in adultery, was a great place to start this series that I will be writing on Sunday’s.

In this chapter, the Pharisee’s were already fed up with this one named Jesus. They were upset at the following that he was gaining. They were upset with the amount of power that it seemed like he was gaining in the temple. So like any Holier than thou “religious” person, the Pharisee’s (who were legalists) gathered together the modern day equivalent of attorneys, the “Scribes” and decided they would go out into the court of the Temple and put Jesus in his place. They were trying their best to trap him in a religious word trap, using the law of Moses. They brought to him the woman taken in adultery (interesting how they couldn’t find her male adultery partner, so he could face his stoning…) and demanded of him, a judgement on her guilt and the execution of the law. Not realizing they had brought the woman to the one who was with his Father when the law was handed down to Moses.  The legalists are those who want to cast down those who have fallen short, and the Pharisees were especially talented at looking down their nose at those around them. So when they brought her to him, they of course remind him of the law and asks “well what are we to do with her”? I love the reaction Christ returned, he just knelt and wrote on the ground, I’ve often wondered what it was that he wrote. Of course they pressed the question, until he finally gave him an answer they never seen coming, “He, that is among you, cast the first stone”. They forgot who they were talking to, he knew the hearts of every person gathered there that day. They also didn’t recognize him as the one who could forgive sins, and as it says in Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. His sacrifice would soon put a bookend on the fulfillment of the law of Moses.  That day, there in the Temple court, Jesus saved that womans life. Not only can he save a person for eternity, he can save a person by his forgiveness, and his redirection, repentance. He told the woman, after all the stones had been dropped to the ground, “Go, Sin no more”. She is not the only one he said this to, he said it to many of his followers throughout the Gospels.

Isn’t that the miracle-working power of God?! He took that womans worst day, she was to be stoned to death. But, God set her free from her condemnation, and the terrible death she was about to face. I think that will preach.

After she left, the Pharisees were not finished with Jesus. He had told them He was the light of the world, and they that walked after him would never walk in darkness. To which they said that Christ was bearing his own witness, and It was not true. (After all the miracles, all the works of His Father, some still would not see.) Then after setting them straight on the stoning, He set them straight on a doctrinal issue. He said to them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.  And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

Many folks misunderstand the difference between law of the Old Testament, and Grace that Jesus brought in the New Testament. It really hinges around the Matthew 5:17 verse. When Jesus explained that he was not come to destroy the law, or the prophets: but He had come to fulfill the law. Which absolutely does not  mean that we take advantage of Christ and sin knowingly, the Bible says that we crucify Him afresh if we do that. His grace toward us is that while we were yet sinners, he died for us, and when he saved or healed someone he would say “Go, Sin no more.” With the help of the Holy Spirit we can have victory over sin in this life, by studying Gods word, and Prayer. All things were fulfilled in the crucifixion of Christ.

‘Adolph Hitler’ Ordered to be Held In Custody In New Jersey


One day, you take your family to the grocery store to order a decorated birthday cake for your youngest son.  There’s just one problem, they refuse to decorate the cake for you.  Not because you don’t have the money for it.  Not because they ran out of icing or cake.  But, because they refuse to write your son’s name on the cake, his name, Adolph Hitler Campbell. After the story of this incident broke in the local news papers, child protective services showed up on the doorstep of the Campbell’s, ultimately, child services took all four of their children into custody. Three of their four children are named after Nazi figures or terminology. This happened in New Jersey in 2009.

Fast forward to present day. There was a hearing in Superior Court to decide if the children should be held in State custody or be returned to their parents. Superior Court Judge Robert Reed ruled that the children should continue to be detained in the states care. A decision Adolph’s father strongly disagreed with saying  it was based purely on the names of his children rather than the couple’s ability to serve as parents.

“These kids weren’t abused. Our kids weren’t taken because of abuse,” Campbell said. “I’m honest about who I am and what I am.” He further added “If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I’ll do it,” he said. The children are “more my heart and soul and everything than anything.”

The Campbell’s are reported to have separated. An interesting interconnected note is that the Nazi Party recently filed the paper work in Washington D.C. to have their own lobbyist to the Congress of the United States in April, 2012, and were permitted to do so.

Here is one thing to consider. In America we have a constitutional right to the freedom of association, no matter what the social astigmatism is. We are protected from persecution by the government for being associated with any political ideology. If someone wants to follow communist ideology, in America they are free to do so, even though I strongly disagree with their decision in that choice, I support their right to subscribe to communism. Because I support the U.S. Constitution. We have a right to free and open debate.

I do not like anything that promotes Nazism, I find their actions both past and present, to be detestable. However, I don’t support an over reaching all-powerful government bureaucracy whether Federal, State, or Local in nature.

Here is another point of view to ponder.

Muhammad is a very popular name in the world right now, and many young boys are being named Muhammad currently.

In AD 627, Muhammad committed an atrocity against the last remaining major tribe of Jews in Medina: the Qurayza. Muhammad beheaded or had beheaded 750 Jews, adults and prepubescent males, and gathered all the women together as slaves. Muhammad, also had taken to himself a wife, a young girl of the age of around 9. He was middle-aged at the time of their wedding. The Hadith chronicles the story of Muhammad marrying the 9 year old girl of his friend,the girl was named Aisha. The Southern Baptists had gotten into some hot water over referring to Muhammad as a “Demon Possessed Pedophile” in 2002.

If Muhammad hated the Jews, and killed them. And Adolph hated the Jews, and killed them. Why is it more politically correct to name children Muhammad than Adolph. Is it in our psyche as a nation to abhor the name Adolph, because his atrocities were more recent, and closer to the surface of our knowledge than that of Muhammad’s atrocities? I would say that is part of it. However, consider this point of view, or are we so afraid of being politically incorrect to tell the truth about both men, because Islam calls one of them a prophet? Are we to afraid to criticise one because he is a so-called “religious” figure? And, equally, are we so easy to criticise the other one because its socially acceptable to do so?

In America, does the government have the right to take children into custody, because of their name? Where no credible evidence of abuse can be determined beyond a reasonable doubt? Can they break up a family because of your decision to name your children what you seen fit?  Should the authorities be investigating Islamic families that are naming their boys Muhammad?  If the answer is yes, we are in a world of hurt.

TSA – Decides to Stop Groping Granny


Read; then let this seer into your mind for a while.

The year was 1692, the place was Salem Village, Massachusetts. At the zenith of the Witch Trials in our country, people were scared to death of their neighbors for fear that they would be accused of being a witch. They were terrified they would be arrested, tried, convicted of being a witch and then subsequently hanged. A great commotion was started by a group of little girls and their accusations against a slave woman named, Tituba. The little girls were exhibiting strange behavior, convulsions and the doctor of the village could see no natural cause for the affliction. The girls of Salem Village, had to be under the spell of a witch or worse yet, witches.

You! You are GUILTY!!!

I have given you a synopsis of the story of the witch trials because something amazing and wonderful happened out of those terrible trials. A shift happened. A shift of the burden of proof needed to convict someone beyond a reasonable doubt. History tells us, that when accused of a crime, the law said that the burden of proof was on the accused. However, at the end of the witch trials this was transferred to the prosecution. This is to say that at one point, if accused, you would have to prove that you were innocent of the indictment, that was your burden. After the trials, if you were accused of a crime, those who indicted you, had to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were guilty of the charges. Now it was their burden. No more were you presumed guilty until you proved your innocence, you were presumed innocent until the State proved you were guilty. This premise is what our system is built on, it impacts the writ of habeas corpus and the right to a fair and speedy trial.

Now ask yourself, are you guilty, or is there probable cause to search you for entering a certain area in an airport? Who has the right to search your ‘person’ for merely being in an area of a building. What’s even worse, you are not only searched, now you are “seen” naked through the airport scanners or felt up by some TSA pervert. You might think that is rough but I was raised being told that no one had the right to touch my body, unless I give it to them. The government, using the TSA, Homeland Security, and the Patriot act has turned 320 years of legal precedent on its ear. They have groped granny, pulled out colostomy bags, humiliated cancer patients, touched children in inappropriate places, imagine if a parent done to their child what the TSA now calls a duty, the parent who touched their child would be jailed for gross sexual imposition of a minor! It is disgusting how we are being treated for merely wanting to take part in the convenience of flying on an airplane from one place to another. All because 19 Saudi Arabian radical Islamists decided to use jet airplanes full of fuel as weapons against our countrymen. So now we endure the death of the 4th amendment, as we “disrobe” through the airport scanner, take our shoes and belts off, carry “approved fluids” in “approved bottles” using “approved methods”. It is MADNESS!

We should all wear it as a badge of honor! We will NOT comply!

The good news is we are slowly rolling back their power by our protest and righteous indignation. The spokesperson for the TSA, David Castelveter, has recently released news that the TSA has rethought their stance on strip searching granny and grandpappy, they’re going to relax restrictions on all air travelers over the age of 75. Any one want to join me in a sarcastic “thank you, TSA!?”. Imagine, the government telling you, we’re going to “slow up” on trampling your Constitutional rights. People everywhere should be outraged! They’re going to stop doing something that they should have never done in the first place, no more groping granny! Well it’s about time pervs!

Now how about keeping your hands off the rest of us!

Kirk Cameron’s Monumental Movie Project


Super Powers have risen and fallen. History has shown all nations go through times that are good and bad. The nations who were able to correct their course before they went off a cliff are far and few between. In order to restore any nation you have to diagnose when or where that nation started to “go off the tracks”. Kirk Cameron, father of 6 children and outspoken Christian has been working on a documentary project called “Monumental”. In the documentary he traces Americas roots all the way back to our beginnings. Not 1776, but hundreds of years earlier, into other nations, to our origins where the dream of America started.

I love the movie “Gladiator” with Russell Crowe. I especially love the quote that Ceaser, Marcus Aurelius said to Maximus, “there once was a dream that was Rome, you could only whisper it, anything more and it would vanish.” He was speaking to how fragile the nation was. Many of us who are conservative understand the same about our freedoms. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, freedom is not an inheritance, it has to be worked toward and for. Each generation has to toe the line.

The DVD of “Monumental” can be purchased on the Monumental Movie website. At $15.00, it is a steal, considering it costs (for two) $35.00-45.00 currently to watch a movie in a theatre.

Enjoy the trailers, and check out the website. Find the diagnosis and prescription for our nation, and help it prosper.
