The Bible As The Basis For The Constitution

As we examine human life, we discover that every culture, every country, all people, and nations, have laws which order and direct human activity. Laws are necessary because the basic nature of the human species is towards evil. We are inherently selfish and often seek to look out for our own interests first. Without laws, evil would run rampant over peaceful people who are doing their best to live good and productive lives.

What is the origin of human laws? Where did the framers of the Constitution of the United States find the laws that allow the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans?

The Egyptians, Assyrians, Greeks, and Romans, as well as, many other great an powerful nations of the ancient world, worshipped many different gods. Not one before, ever possessed the laws that were given to the nation that originated from Abraham. When God gave Moses His law on Mount Sinai, these basic ten commandments changed, forever, the course of all human activity. No other nation in the history of the world had the code of moral laws, like those which governed the people of Israel. Every great nation since that time, has fashioned their own laws, from these basic ten laws that Moses received from God. Continue reading “The Bible As The Basis For The Constitution”

Caught Up Together: The Next Great Event

These are perilous times. We look around us and see that the world has grown darker and more evil. We perceive the hearts of people growing hateful and cold. Governments are corrupt. The perverse rise up and censor and mock the righteous. God is relegated to a corner and told to be quiet. Christians are silent and say little for fear of ridicule or loss.

These are the days predicted by the scriptures in which God would end the evil of this world and bring the light of His kingdom to earth. The world doesn’t expect Jesus to come. In fact, they laugh at the idea. Even Christians have difficulty accepting that Jesus will come again, believing the lie of the scoffer who asks: “where is the promise of Jesus coming?” Continue reading “Caught Up Together: The Next Great Event”

Does It Matter How God Feels?

We make a hundred decisions every day, most of which, concern us. Do we ever stop to think about what we say and do and how these things affect God? Many of us never consider that we are important enough for God to notice. We are stunned to discover that He is watching us with such interest that he knows how many breaths we have taken on any particular day. He catches all of our tears in a bottle. He has numbered the hairs on our head. We discover that He fashioned us in our mother’s womb and planned all the wonderful days of our life for us, before we were born.

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me —Psalms 139:16 Continue reading “Does It Matter How God Feels?”

Returning Moral Clarity To American Life

We are confronted with a dangerous enemy. The erosion of the American family and the moral values that define us as a people and a nation have been under attack for more than 50 years. Redefining what constitutes marriage, accepting that gender is determined by personal choice, excluding the voice and choice of people who appose changes in America’s moral history. Taking God out of every resemblance of government, schools, and public offices. Degrading the United States until it no longer resembles its former visage intended by the framers of our Constitution.

This generation has no idea of the former glory of America when people really cared about their neighbors and lived together in peace. The line between morality and immorality has been eroded until its barrier is no loner detectable by young people today.

It is seldom understood why morality is so important to the survival of our nation. Only when we examine the history of the world do we discover that no nation has survived which permitted perversion to be normalized, and the sanctity of human life diminished.

It's Okay To Speak Negatively About Christians

Why is it people think that saying something negative about a Christian is okay but not about other religions? What makes Christianity such a threat to people that they exclude those who believe in Jesus from the rules of decency and respect? In an article about Presidential Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, we see a glimpses of this problem today:

“If someone says something about another faith, particularly liberals come to their defense in a raging motion, but if someone attacks a Christian, it’s perfectly fine. At some point we became a culture that said that was okay.” —Sarah Sanders

Starting The Day: First The Word, Then The World

When you wake up in the morning how do you start your day? If you are like me, often it’s a cup of coffee and the news. On a few mornings I begin the day with the word of God. Sitting silently in the quiet of early morning, I open my Bible and begin to read and think about what God has written for us. I noticed that when I start the day with the world—listening to the news and what is happening—my day goes far different that it does when I start with the word of God.

As I read and meditate upon what God has said I can feel my heart soaking up the good things He has spoken and a sense of refreshment comes over my soul.

Religious And Moral Objections to Contraceptive Mandate

“Freedom to practice one’s faith is a fundamental right” —President Donald Trump

Thomas Jefferson’s “Wall of Separation” Letter

ISSUE: Question of the governments right to force its citizens to violate their moral or religious objections to purchasing health care that includes contraception, abortions, or to deny service based on a conscious objection.

If God Doesn't Exist, Why Is There So Much Evidence To The Contrary?

According to critics, there is no evidence for the existence of God. Many people read these comments and take the word of those who make these clams. If this in in fact, true, then why do we find such a great body of evidence to the contrary? All one must do is read the words of the New Testament Gospels and we get a very clear picture of the truth. Continue reading “If God Doesn't Exist, Why Is There So Much Evidence To The Contrary?”

The Real Reason Stephen Paddock Committed The Las Vegas Massacre

Underestimating Demonic Influence In Mass Murder

I can understand the hesitancy of the world and the main stream media to insinuate a spiritual influence as a possible reason for the massacre in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017. In these matters they have very little knowledge and even less, a  belief in the supernatural. As one who has spent more than 42 years researching and writing about why human beings do what they do, I know that the presence of demonic beings and their influence over vulnerable individuals is a very real phenomenon.

In 1993, I was teaching a Bible study at my home in Northern California. One of the ladies that had been attending for several months, brought a young lady with her on this particular eventing. About halfway through the Bible study I noticed that each time I said the words: “Jesus Christ,” this young woman turned her head quickly to one side and then the other and opened her mouth as if she was snarling.

The Calm Before The Storm: What Did Trump Mean?

What did President Trump mean by his statement: “This is the calm before the storm?” For many, this may be an indication of an impending war. For those who watch the world through the lens of Bible Prophecy, we understand that Donald Trump is a sort of Cyrus from the Old Testament who God used during perilous times to accomplish His will.

Today, all around us we are seeing signs that should tell us that something is about to happen. The Bible is very clear that nothing takes place on earth or in the heavens apart from God’s knowledge.

Without the knowledge of many people in the world today, God has been following a carefully scripted plan that He determined before He made the universe.
