I offer the single most politically incorrect statement a modern American — indeed a modern Westerner, period — can make: I look first to the Bible for moral guidance and for wisdom.
I say this even though I am not a Christian (I am a Jew, and a non-Orthodox one at that). And I say this even though I attended an Ivy League graduate school (Columbia), where I learned nothing about the Bible except that it was irrelevant, outdated, and frequently immoral.
I say this because there is nothing — not any other work, religious or secular, or body of work — that comes close to having played a role like the Bible’s in forming the moral basis of Western civilization and therefore the basis of nearly all moral progress in the world.

Christians have waited since for the sun to rise on this Sunday, Easter morning.
Today, Easter Sunday, we rejoice as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection, his victory over death, hell, and the grave. The Christian faith is founded upon the events of the period from Christ’s arrest until his ascension.
Sadly, today the tenets of the Christian faith have been turned and are now being used by those of little or no faith against the Christian Church.
Where are the Christian warriors? (Maybe we need a modern day Knights Templar organization to confront those who have turned America on its head. Just a thought.)
America used to be a Christian nation. She can not lay claim to that title any longer.
Look. The very word “Christian” means “Christ-like.” There is very little in America that could be classified as Christ-like today. In fact, America reassembles Sodom and Gomorrah more than a nation that subscribes to the teachings of Christ.

So, one weekday morning last year I got up with the chickens and went to the 8:30am Low Tridentine Mass uptown. It started out normally enough. In processed Father with one server.
Father looked a bit flat-footed, but then this particular priest is pretty old, so one doesn’t expect a Fred Astaire-like gait from the quasi-elderly. It wasn’t until the consecrations of the Host and Chalice that it became clear that something was terribly, physically wrong with Father.
At each genuflection he had to slightly twist his body and almost lay his upper body on the altar in order to genuflect, bearing much of his weight on his elbows both on the way down and on the way back up. It was obvious with each genuflection that Father was in excruciating pain. I sat in my little spot in the back of the church, at once horrified by the obvious physical distress I was witnessing, but also deeply moved by the courageous perseverance and uncompromising love for Our Lord that Father, seen by only the half-dozen or so people in the nave, demonstrated.
To conquer an enemy everyone knows you need planning, organization, courage and weapons. The more prepared you are for battle, the more likely you are to win. Isn’t that the way it works? Work your plan, load your weapons and kick some butt.
Well-meaning patriot groups are everywhere, organizing their members and working with Sheriffs and Governors. The 10th amendment foundation and other state’s rights groups are pushing nullification against forced health care and any violation by the NDAA Bill against the people.
Tea Party groups continue to grow and organize across the country. The people are waking up. Even many progressives, Democrats and black folks are snapping out of their well-meaning stupor as they see one freedom crushed after another by this regime. Increased taxes, unemployment and compromised health care are hitting the left also. That simply wasn’t the deal offered by Obama. Liberal and conservative seniors are suffering.

The Sickness of Western Culture: Can We Survive it? … “the barbarians are not only at the gate, they have breached the perimeter.”
Culture’s shifting sands on moral standards

Sixty years ago juvenile delinquency and what to do about it suddenly drew a round of national soul searching. We no longer even use the term. We think in terms of juvenile monsters.
Yesteryear’s hoods and troublemakers seem quaint and innocent beside today’s appalling school murders, gang rapes and teenage mayhem…

Islam and Cannibalism?

In a recent video interview, one Egyptian scholar exposed the high school curriculum coming from Al-Azhar university, the most reputable of all Islamic schools, showing that it condoned cannibalizing non-Muslims:
…..If you disagree with the idea of reincarnation, or a plurality of heavens and hells, or karma being a biblical teaching, or reaching a state of salvation while still on this earthly plane, then by all means disregard such things—whatever floats your boat. I am writing about them because they are concepts that have helped me on my spiritual path, and I share them in case they may be of use to others.
Whether you pick them up or kick them to the side is all the same to me—they are trifles compared to that which is important.What is important is, as I said earlier, that we share a belief in an afterlife and a system of reward and punishment. The reality of divine reward and punishment used to be commonplace knowledge in this country—not anymore—and we see the results of such atheistic hubris all around us in the breakdown of morality and promulgation of depravity.By this point you may be asking yourself “what in the world is an article like this doing in a venue devoted to conservative politics?”
The answer is that while it is all fine and good to debate the various pros and cons of liberal and conservative ideologies, we are just spinning our wheels unless we address the real issues that lay at the heart of such matters—and it is no hyperbole to say that the fundamental and most important difference between the liberal and conservative viewpoints centers around how they each treat the topic of God and spirituality.If you are under the impression that religion and spirituality play no part in political strategies, let me hasten to point out that there are many atheists and leftist radicals who would strongly disagree with you.

Atlanta businessman Bob Preyss sees the crucial time period between November 1 and 6 as America coming in on a wing and a prayer.
Like the hopeful during World War 11, Preyss counts most on the lyrics:
“…Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer
Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer
With our full crew on board
And our trust in the Lord
We’re comin’ in on a wing and a prayer”.
(Looong Article…See Reader Responses…) Identifying Three Trends in Far Right Violence in the United States
In the morning hours of August 5, 2012, the Sikh temple at Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was crowded with children and mothers engaged in preparations for the Langar, a traditional Sikhcommunal meal scheduled to be held later that day.
At around 10:00 AM, Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old from nearby Cudahy, Wisconsin, arrived in the temple parking lot and started firing at the temple’s inhabitants using a pistol purchased several days earlier.
He then entered the temple and continued his killing spree until he was gunned down by police forcesthat arrived to the site. At that point, he had already killed six worshippers and a police officer.
While details from the investigation have not yet been officially released, a growing body of evidence links Page to various far right elements, mainly the skinheads subculture and the white power music scene. As a result, policymakers and intellectuals expressed concerns about a potential revival of far right violence in the United States. Many of their responses also reflected common misconceptions and deficiencies that dominate the popular discourse about the American far right, such as the inability to distinguish between its different components, lack of understanding of its ideological tenets as well as the tendency to ignore the fact that American far right violence was never really absent; if anything, the level of far right violence has been rising steadily for the last two decades.
How does this report differ...?????
If you are an outspoken Christian in America, you need to be concerned. If you are an outspoken Christian in
America who happens to be a gun owner, you need to be very concerned. And if you are a Christian gun owner who disagrees with the Progressive anti-Christian in America and have a platform to inform others, you better believe that you are under intense scrutiny. Sound like paranoid propaganda? Read on.

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints often refer to Jesus Christ as their elder brother. This expression of endearment appears in sermons, lessons, and publications…The title is used enough that some might think that elder brother is one of the many titles attributed to Christ in the scriptures, but nowhere do the scriptures use this expression in reference to Jesus. Nor can the idea that Jesus is our elder brother be ascribed with certitude to the teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith…
The Corporate Cult evolved in the United States as a hybrid of the sales force of the corporation and the religious devotion of the cult. This type of entity might be a cult like Scientology, which used the aggressive and organized sales tactics and marketing campaigns of a corporation, or it could be a corporation like Apple, whose employees earn little, but feel a sense of satisfaction at being part of a meaningful entity.
…..Secondly, the whole issue of who we fear needs to be settled once and for all, for Jesus would have us know we are in a cosmic conflict, and neutrality is impossible…..
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

The temple of postmodern liberalism was rocked these last few weeks, as a number of supporting columns and buttresses simply crashed, leaving the entire edifice wobbling.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. ( John 3:18-20)
In John chapter three, Jesus tells us that he didn’t come into the world to “condemn the world”. He didn’t have to, for the world, which rejects the Father and “His only begotten Son” was and is already condemned. All men are continuously condemned by God’s law, as well as by their consciences which tell them, that they are not right with God.
One thing that concerns to public school educ(rats) is the growing home school and Christian school movements wherein Children are taught to think and not to just follow the establishment’s socialist program. They are prescient enough to realize that, some years down the road, this could be a problem for them and their system and so they would love to find some way to shut it down. Every years in state legislatures around the country someone is always introducing a bill that will hamper or hinder private education and home schooling in some way.
Many years ago I stood at the bedside of a young father as he hovered between life and death. His distraught wife and their two children stood nearby. He took my hand in his and, with a pleading look, said, “Bishop, I know I am about to die. Tell me what happens to my spirit when I do.”
I offered a silent prayer for heavenly guidance and noticed on his bedside table a copy of the triple combination. I reached for the book and fanned the pages. Suddenly I discovered that I had, with no effort on my part, stopped at the 40th chapter of Alma in the Book of Mormon. I read these words to him:
“Behold, it has been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, … are taken home to that God who gave them life.
“And … the spirits of those who are righteous are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all care, and sorrow” (Alma 40:11–12).
I next saw the wife and children at the funeral. I think back to that night when a young man pleaded for truth and, from the Book of Mormon, heard the answer to his question.

The purpose of this tract is to inform you of the great urgency there now is in the world for each and every person to be reconciled to God. The Bible is the Word of God! Everything the Bible declares has the full authority of God Himself. Now, at this time, information is coming forth from the Bible which clearly reveals God’s plan for Judgment Day and the end of the world itself. The Bible has opened up its secrets concerning the timeline of history. This information was never previously known because God had closed up His Word blocking any attempt to gain knowledge of the end of the world. We read about this in the book of Daniel:
Today, in every facet of our American culture and society there is nothing found that is NOT untainted or unsoiled by the horrific consequences from the VIOLATIONS of the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God (Isaiah 24:5-6). There is no greater place where this embracement of decadence is to be found today than in our YOUTH (10 -18 years old). With the liberal secularist controlling the music industry, video games, image media and educational system, it is no wonder that all kinds of godless immorality is promoted, applauded and encouraged by our society today.
Tragically our youth have NOT been taught the moral absolutes which provide healthy moral boundaries to preserve a society. They have been spoon fed with the destructive poison of narcissism, secularism, pluralism, political correctness and relativism from their crib. Is it no wonder that…..
“It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the JUDGMENT” Hebrews 9:27
You may do all in your power to put the thought of death away from you. However, you cannot escape the fact that you must die. You KNOW that you must die and face God. Maybe the reason you are reluctant to think about death is that you also know that judgment follows death as surely as night follows day. I an seriousness, could I possibly press a more sensible or important question upon you than this — What is going to happen to you when you die?
Conscience, common sense, and the Bible all declare to you that there is an eternity that you must face. As you read these lines, you know I speak the truth. You know the above text of Scripture is as true as can be. If you and I were talking over a cup of coffee, you might grin and say, “Ah com on John, you are just trying to scare me.” However, as you think about the words DEATH…JUDGMENT…ALL MEN, your “heart of hearts” deep inside of you is saying to you this very moment, “Sure, man, he’s telling it like it really is. I must die and face God my Creator.”
Dave Daubenmire — Christianity’s Prevent Defense:
Athletics is a game…life is life-and-death…and many parents invest all of their energy in things that really are of little importance. “Straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel” is how Jesus described much of our lives.
The more football one watches the more he tends to believe that he is an expert in strategy. These are the guys who are known as “armchair quarterbacks” because they love to make decisions from the safety of their living room. Most fans love to practice “20-20 hindsight”….describing to anyone who will listen how he would have done it…once the play is over. My coaching experience tells me that second-guessing is a lot easier than first-guessing. Believe me; after the play is over I know if the call had been a good one. The last thing I need is some guy with a Budweiser and pizza stains on his shirt explaining to me what I should have done.
Wouldn’t life be so much easier with do-overs? How many times in life have you wished you could use a mulligan? Usually the big decisions are just that…decisions. Only the second-guessers get to guess. The real decision-makers have to pass the test on the first try. The Coach only gets one chance at that 4th-and-goal call………….
DADT gone, but unequal treatment of gays still here [Now, it starts]:
(CNN) — In the very early hours of this morning, “don’t ask, don’t tell” ceased to be U.S. policy.
As a result, today is the first day I can write about being the partner of a gay military serviceman without fear that he will lose his job. …
The battle has only been half won. Gay servicemen or servicewomen can no longer be discharged simply for being gay, but they are still treated inequitably.
Only by using their newly won free speech can they hope to reap the same benefits as their straight colleagues.

Congressman Mike Quigley to Islam Conference:
‘I Apologize on Behalf of America’: On Saturday morning, Illinois Democrat Congressman Mike Quigely made a surprise appearance at the American Islamic College Conference in Chicago. The unaccredited college is the first of its kind in the United States.
Quigley gave remarks to the primarily muslim audience. He rambled on about the typical racism and discrimination that the liberal left is so convinced America is rampantly infected with. As you can see in the video below, he proceeded in his congressional capacity to apologize on behalf of the country for discrimination against muslims’ faith.
A lady in Monte Vista,CO had this dollar bill. This is her story.
You don’t think we’re in a war???
These are starting to show up around our country!
After dinner she took a $1 dollar bill out of her purse and displayed it on the table.
Underneath the words “In God We Trust” someone had stamped the dollar bill in red ink—NO GOD BUT ALLAH.
We asked her where she had gotten this dollar bill. She said it was part of her change in Alamosa , CO .
We took a picture of her dollar bill. If anyone tries to give you one of these dollar bills as change,
please refuse it and ask them to give you a dollar bill that
has not been defaced.
Send this on to everyone you know, please.

This is my website. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
Knowledge is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My knowledge, without me, is useless. Without my knowledge, I am useless. I must think my thoughts true. I must think straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill my way of life. I must rebuke him before he enslaves me.
My knowledge and experience confirm that what counts in this war is not the words we write, the noise of our critics, nor the smoke and mirrors of our enemy. We know that it is the minds we liberate that count. We will liberate…
My knowledge is living, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its words, its arguments, its logic, and its composition. I will ever guard it against the ravages of tyrants and oppressors as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against harm and oppression. I will keep my thoughts clear and ready. We will become part of each other. We will be one…
So be it, until victory is America‘s and there is no enemy, but liberty!
Founder, Free Range Patriots
On June 26th, the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.was the latest church to be used for the promotion of syncretism—the attempted union of different religions. The idea was that “Christian” ministers, Jewish Rabbis, and Muslim Imams would co-lead a service in “Christian” churches around America using a multi-faith liturgy.
Sadly, 70 other churches across America signed on to do the same thing. The event was organized by a group called “Faith Shared.” It comes as no shock that the service was designed to promote “religious tolerance.” This is indeed a major step forward in promoting what I believe to be America’s new god of tolerance.
The major problem with this false god of tolerance is that it is not marked by the true love that genuine Christians believe in and are called upon to exercise. Love of others, regardless of their background, religion, or complexion, should be expressed in offering hospitality, and even service, but not at the expense of the truth. Loving people and selling out on the truth of one’s faith are two different things altogether.
These liberal “apostate” denominations are not only naïve and ignorant of the truth of the Christian faith, they are acting on emotional impulse in a way that ultimately endangers our nation. They are seeking to engender personal acceptance from others, rather than imploring others to accept Christ as the Savior.
You may be wondering how a service that promotes “unity” could be dangerous to our nation. What many Americans do not understand is that Islam is not just a religion. It is a political and social system that is inseparable from the state. Islamic Sharia [law] is to be administered by Muslim caliphates or successors of the prophet, not a secular government. Indeed the founder of Islam was not only their prophet, but also their commander-in-chief, ruler and unifier, something they have been longing for again since the fourth one died and created a division between the Shiites and the Sunnis.
Also, what most of these naïve souls don’t understand is that Taqiah is a religious/political principal in Islam that allows Muslims to go along with this charade of mixing and mingling religions, something that is normally anathema to them. Taqiah says that when you do not have the upper hand, go along with the infidels’ schemes until you get the upper hand, and then subjugate them.
Has anyone noticed that none of these events are ever held in a Mosque? It is an anathema to have a Christian minister speak in a Mosque, but they are happy to occupy the pulpits of hapless Christians in American Christian churches. Indeed, it is considered a triumph of Islam over the infidels when they occupy Christian pulpits without opening their Mosques to Christian preachers.
Be that as it may, Bible-believing Christians should love everyone, including Muslims. That love can be expressed in a variety of ways: acts of kindness, hospitality, and friendship. Above all, there can be no greater act of love by true Christians than to share our most prized treasure with our Muslim friends. Only Jesus Christ can meet their most desperate need by making a personal relationship with God possible. He came to earth from Heaven, took on the form of a servant, died on a cross, and rose again on the third day.
For true, genuine, and Bible-believing Christians, this is the greatest act of kindness that they can express to all people, including Muslims.
During this month of Ramadan, as Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, all Christians need to pray that Muslims come to know the only One who is the way, the truth, and the giver of eternal life.

According to this field of thought, a pre-Adamic race existed on the original Earth before it became “dark and void” (Genesis 1:2). These humanlike creatures lived under the government of God and were presided over by Lucifer, the “anointed cherub that covereth” (Ezekiel 28:14). When these pre-Adamites joined Lucifer in revolt against God, a cataclysm fell upon Earth, physically destroying its inhabitants. Only the spirits of these beings survived to roam the earth disembodied. This is offered as an explanation for why demons desire to possess humans, as they were meant to be “housed” in bodies of flesh and are uncomfortable otherwise.
2) Demons—Otherworld Beings?
Since little is known about life outside the limited sphere of our planet, a growing body of people contend that intelligent life forms may have been visiting earth from distant worlds or parallel dimensions since the beginning of time. Some Bible expositors have picked up on this concept, blending it with traditional demonology and suggesting that demons are perhaps entities from another world (or reality) whose structure, like ultraviolet rays, are invisible to the human eye, but nonetheless distinct in atomic design.
Those holding this view note the universal consistency with which extraterrestrials and UFOs have been seen throughout history and that continue to be reported………………

Billy Graham‘s Prayer For Our Nation
Billy Graham’s Prayer For Our Nation: “Billy Graham’s Prayer For Our Nation THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT’S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY! ‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!’ With the Lord’s help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called ‘One nation under God!’”

According to the teaching of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, their global evangelical work is the fulfillment of Revelations 7:9…The Jehovah’s Witnesses in their teaching, claim that the “Great Crowd” in Revelation refers to ordinary members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization and that they are different from a special select group of “144000″ represented in the present world by the leadership of the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization referred to in affected modesty as the “discrete slave class.” The special class of 144,000, according to the Governing Body of the Jehovah’s Witnesses which sets the doctrines and teachings of the group, will rule as spirit beings with Christ in heaven while the “Great Crowd which no man can count” have no hope of going to heaven but will live forever in paradise on earth under the government of Christ and his “spiritual brothers” that is, the 14,000
According to the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Jehovah God has largely completed the gathering of the anointed 144,000 which began with the down-pouring of the holy spirit on Pentecost and members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses leadership are the remnant of this specially anointed and privileged group. The present global evangelical work of the Jehovah’s Witness is God‘s program for ingathering of “sheeplike ones” (as distinct from the rest of us “goat-like” ones whom God will destroy in the battle of Armageddon) who will be earthly subjects of God’s Kingdom ruling from heaven. Only those who accept the gospel as preached by Jehovah’s Witnesses and become part of “Gods visible organization on earth,” i.e. the Jehovah’s Witnesses, will survive the prophesied Armageddon in which God will destroy all non-Jehovah’s witnesses (as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be at Armageddon).
But why is God delaying execution of judgment on us wicked folk for so long? The 1914 Generation which is supposed to see the end of this “wicked system of things” has passed, yet God is withholding his wrath against the stiffnecked majority of humanity who have refused to join themselves to Jehovah and his only true organization on earth.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses leadership claims that God has in recent times been speeding up the growth of the Watchtower Society to fulfill the ingathering of “sheeplike ones” from all nations, tongues and races, a “Great Crowd” which no man can count and who will survive Armageddon into God’s new paradise on earth. (They make this claim even though statistics show that in recent times the rate of growth of the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization has slowed down significantly.) Watchtower Magazine, explains:
JEHOVAH is now speeding up the ingathering of sheeplike ones. Surely, then, this is no time for his people to slow down in their Kingdom-preaching and disciple-making work. (Isaiah 60:8, 22; Matthew 24:14; 28:19, 20) ? Indeed, increased witnessing activity by so many more publishers and pioneers is now stirring up the world field. And the momentum of this joyous ingathering will yet grow.?Isaiah 60:11?
A quick calculation by jwfacts.com website shows, however, just how monstrously faulty the Jehovah’s Witnesses excuse for God’s delaying of Armageddon really is. According to the site, on the average, more than 200,000 people are born worldwide , but the daily increase in Jehovah’s witnesses as at 2005 was only 224 persons. This means that for each day Armageddon delays God will have to destroy approximately an extra 200,000 people.
Surely, Jehovah God would do better to speed up Armageddon and get the gory job done rather than delay endlessly!
