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.

Signs Of The End

COPYRIGHT WARNING

What are the signs of Jesus’ return and the end of the age?

Jesus was very specific in telling us what to look for in determining the end of this present world. For the time being, God’s timeline is focused on the salvation of people. God is waiting to give time for people to find Jesus, receive Him and be saved. God’s Spirit will not always strive with us forever. He has appointed a time when His Grace will run out and the end will come. For 2,000 years we have all seen God’s Grace in action, being patient with a world that denies God, rejects Christ, and is increasingly becoming more violent and evil.

Salvation Without Cost

COPYRIGHT WARNING

It is the greatest desire of man that he could live forever. There have been many books written, movies produced, and songs sung; that express our desire to live a life that would never end. When we think about the ceasing of our existence here on earth, it doesn’t make sense. How could we suddenly cease to exist? It is our sense of eternity and fear of death, that haunts us our entire life. The Bible states that God placed eternity within our heart when He made us, but none of us understands How to achieve it.

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NLT)

If there was a fee that could be paid in order to gain access to eternal life, it is certain that many wold endeavor to pay it. The reason that people explore religion in the first place is to understand what happens at the moment of death and seek to know if they will go on living after their body dies.

Amongst all religions of the world, there is a common thread: The fact that eternal life can be achieved, at a cost. Those who will acquire the right to live forever, must perform certain rituals, procedures, or follow a set of rules. Only the Bible reveals that eternal life is a free gift that cannot be purchased. God will give any person the right to live forever, without cost, if they will simply believe what He has said.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

The way to heaven is not by a religion, it is through a person. Jesus has already purchased our salvation by the giving of His life. All that we must do is believe this and receive His gift. Continue reading “Salvation Without Cost”

The Gay Marriage Argument Based Upon Disputed Bible Verses

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Those who view gay marriage as a right, often misuse Bible verses for their assertions. The basis for their argument is that certain strange moral behaviors are endorsed by God and the Bible, therefore, no Christian should have any problem with gay marriage.

The following chart illustrates the lack of knowledge that many atheists, critics of the Bible and the LGBT community have, regarding what the Bible teaches:[1]

Pretending That God Does Not Exist In Order To Live Any Way You Choose

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Over the course of 40 years, I have heard just about every excuse for why a person will not receive Jesus as their Savior. In all of the reasons that people give for their unwillingness, they all boil down to one source: A desire to live a certain life that they have chosen, without the interference of religion.

There are many who claim that there is no proof for the existence of God. This is perhaps the most preposterous excuse, considering the massive evidence that is available today to prove that God must exist. In these cases, those who make such assertions, do so from willing ignorance. While asserting that no proof exists for God, under investigation, we find that these persons have not done the necessary work themselves to determine whether or not God actually does exist. In an overwhelming majority, most people who make such claims, use the comments and quotes of other atheists, not their own personal research.

I have not met a single atheists who has taken an academic approach to their atheism by sincerely exploring all the facts which empirically prove that God must exist. The arguments that are frequently given are at best; insufficient, at worst; only taken from the words of other atheists. If you listen to persons who are incorrect in their hypothesis or conclusions, then your hypothesis and conclusions will also be incorrect.

Gay Marriage is the Law of the Land; So Also is the Right of Free Speech

COPYRIGHT WARNING

As the Supreme Court of the United States has made gay marriage the law of the land in the United States, there will certainly be many who fight against the Christian stance in opposition to gay marriage.

Those who now have the right to marry, under law, should remember that the Constitution also gives Christians and others, the right to speak out freely, against gay marriage.  Continue reading “Gay Marriage is the Law of the Land; So Also is the Right of Free Speech”

When America Abandons God: The Signs And The Consequences

COPYRIGHT WARNING

One of the stunning developments that has occurred in the United States during the past 60 years, is the movement of our citizens away from God and the Bible.

After decades of eroding morality and a rise in secular humanism, we no longer possess the faith of our forefathers. Beginning in the fifties, the Christian church ceased from teaching its members the principles of the Bible. This resulted in a nation of individuals who did not know what God has said, nor what He requires. This famine of God’s word produced an eroding national morality, and the acceptance of abhorrent lifestyles that were formerly considered illegal or perverse. Under the guise of equal rights, an onslaught of court cases, sought legal recourse to redefine marriage and what America considers normal in sexual relationships.

During this same period, Colleges and Universities began to teach evolution as the reason for all life, resulting in the exclusion of God from government and educational institutions.

As same-sex relationships became acceptable to the American people, the insistence for more rights, to a wider group of alternative lifestyle and gender identities, has also increased. In April of 2016, a 16 year old North Carolina student, who was born a female but identifies as a male, sued the Gloucester County School Board that had created a policy the prohibited any student from using a restroom that is contrary to their biological sex. On April 19, 2016, a federal appeals court in Richmond, Virginia, gave permission for this case to go forward as a sexual discrimination lawsuit against the school board. According to the federal court, the basis of the case is Title IX of the Federal law that prohibits sex discrimination at schools that receive federal funding.

We are seeing an ever increasing movement by the LGBT advocates to demand that every phase of American culture; government, churches, business, and education, accept every abhorrent demand that is made to accommodate their chosen lifestyles. This movement towards a national acceptance of gays and lesbians as normal and acceptable in every phase of American society, began in 1962 Continue reading “When America Abandons God: The Signs And The Consequences”
