Timothy was bishop of the Ephesus church and disciple of the Apostle Paul who trained him to be a church leader. In A.D. 97, as the pagans were about to celebrate a feast called Catagogion, a festival in which they carried images of pagan gods through the streets, Timothy, severely reproved them for their ludicrous idolatry. For his faithful witness, they beat him with clubs, and he died two days later. Timothy was contending for the faith as every Christian is expected to do. He was compliant; his attackers were contentious, combative, and criminal.
Gibbon reported that the proconsul Pliny had published a general edict against unlawful meetings and Christian leaders thought it prudent to suspend their agapae; “but it was impossible for them to omit the exercise of public worship.” Christian leaders were willing to cease their feast but refused to stop their worship services. They were not being rebels, but being faithful Christians.
If you think a citizen must always obey the government, then government has become your God. To disobey government is to become a rebel and maybe a prisoner! It has always been dangerous to be right when your government is wrong. When Christians disobey government, they must do so based on biblical principles, accept the consequences, and not whine about “suffering for Jesus.”
John Bunyan preached without government permission and spent 12 years in Bedford Jail for preaching without a license; yet after his release, he accepted a license!
While John was in jail, he was only a five minute walk to his home. When blind Mary visited, she brought her father a jug of soup. John wrote, “O the thoughts of the hardship I thought my Blind one might go under, would break my poor heart to pieces. … Yet recalling myself, thought I, I must venture you all with God, though it goeth to the quick to leave you. O, I saw in this condition I was as a man who was pulling down his house upon the head of his Wife and Children. Yet, thought I, I must do it, I must do it.”
It is not necessary to drink a gallon of ocean water to learn that the water is salty. One can make that determination very quickly. Moreover, expensive studies are not necessary to prove it is common for a man and woman to climb into bed after a meal especially if booze was imbibed. And the odds of immorality are exponential with the proximity to Washington, D.C
The fallout continues after the revelation that Vice President Pence refuses to be alone with a woman who is not his wife. It should be noted that Pence was elected to Congress in 2000 after the terrible tenure of Bill Clinton that made oral sex a household word for kids. But then, Progressives said, “It was only sex!” Now Pence is chided, castigated, and condemned for setting guidelines to protect his marriage! He considers his unusual practice a “fence” to protect his marriage. Pence took notice of his colleague Mark Souder, another married Indiana Congressman, living alone in Washington, who committed adultery and resigned in disgrace in May of 2010.
Radical womenare attacking Vice-President Mike Pence for not having lunch with a woman without his wife being present. Nor will he go to an event that serves booze if his wife is absent. One female tweeted, “So the GOP is up in arms over Sharia law, yet Mike Pence won’t have a business meal with a woman that’s not his wife. Sure, that checks out.” The female penman er, penwoman obviously is ignorant about Sharia law.
Sharia requires death to any Muslim who converts to Christ; sexual mutilation of young females; honor killings if a Muslim family is “dishonored” by a female member’s rape; no criticism of Islam; men can have four wives, etc. Sharia is already in Europe and is a growing embryo in America and will be in full bloom if such non-thinkers above have their way.
President Donald Trump has pledged to sign the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) that prohibits the federal government from taking action against individuals who oppose same-sex marriage, although “individuals” is defined broadly in the bill to include for-profit businesses. National Review reported, “This means that the legislation would protect schools, private businesses, and individuals from being stripped of nonprofit tax-exempt status, grants, contracts, or accreditation, as the result of holding particular religious beliefs about the nature of marriage.”
Additionally, it would negate a recent bill signed by Governor Jerry Brown of California who jumped with hobnail boots upon the rights of all Christian colleges in that state. That oppressive law now includes California’s Christian colleges and universities and forces all schools to report to the state officials four times a year on every expulsion and suspension of a student, and the reasons for the discipline. That is none of the government’s business and private college presidents should clearly tell authorities that fact and say: “We will not obey that law. Come and get us.” Only a weak, wavering, wobbly weasel of a college president would obey such a law.
President Trump has had some skirmishes with the judiciary and much depends on the final outcome. The safety of Americans and the hallowedness and effectiveness of the U.S. Constitution could be at risk. Fact: judges are not always right.
Christ spoke about an unjust judge in Luke 18 where a widow lady sought justice from a judge who “feared not God, neither regarded man.” He was dismissive of her complaint. What did the judge have to worry about since he was a judge and she was only a widow lady; however, she kept appealing to him and sent the message that she would not cease but would continue to demand justice. Finally, the judge provided justice for her because she wearied him by her pluck, patience, and persistence.
President Donald Trump made it clear to the world during his Inauguration speech that from now on, the U.S. would make decisions based on the principle of putting America first. The media mavens got their knickers in a very uncomfortable knot because of that new operating principle. How dare Trump suggest such an un-American concept! The very thought is not only annoying, and audacious, but abrasive and aggressive!
The radical leftists believe that the U.S. should put every other nation first when making decisions that affect the U.S. Of course, they don’t expect any other nation to do such a stupid thing but America must never follow policies, practices, and programs that have our best interest as primary!
During the holidays, Ellen had to use the desktop computer so she chased me out of the library and I went to work in the bedroom. The television set was on PBS (warning: to watch regularly will result in brain rot) and one of their never-ending fundraising drives was on. I find it interesting that the left often criticizes Christians (especially radio and television preachers) and Conservatives for raising money but leftists seem to do it non-stop. And most of us actually do something worthwhile with the raised funds. Also, note that all leftist websites have a button to “Donate” in a prominent place. I have no problem with that since no one is forced to give; however, it appears to be inconsistent for them to criticize us when they are masters at pulling Dollars from Dummies–new television show with Michael Moore as host!
Everyone has a constitutional right to be stupid but politicians have abused the privilege. Liberals/progressives have been taking control of America’s institutions for over a hundred years: churches, public schools, universities, entertainment, politics, etc. So how has that worked out? Are we better off now than we were 25 years ago?
Churches are supposed to be the moral compass of this nation but the churches have lost their way. Most of the mainline denominational churches are led by educated fools who are afraid to make any definitive statement about anything. Well, they surely are definite in stating that what churches taught 50 years ago was too much controversy, conflict, and control. Almost all modern pulpits disperse fluff, foolishness, and falsehood.
Each year about 500,000 illegal aliens cross into the U.S. with many carrying drugs, disease, and destructive plans for our nation. In recent months, Border Patrol agents have contracted various diseases, lice, and scabies. The Washington Post reported that Virginia State health authorities announced that “tuberculosis continues to rise” and that “immigration is fueling the spread.”
The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons reported, “Many illegal aliens harbor fatal diseases that American medicine fought and vanquished long ago, such as drug-resistant tuberculosis, malaria, leprosy, plague, polio, dengue, and Chagas disease.” A good example of accelerating disease is that whooping cough is up 1,300% in just two years!
In 2012, I wrote about negative, naughty, and nasty political ads and they are even worse this year but they still do not reach the level of the past. The Trump–Clinton ads are bad but not the most disgusting, disreputable, and dishonest political ads of all time. In fact, current ads are more serious, sober, and even straight-laced (with a few exceptions) than ads of our past.
During the 1796 election between Jefferson and Adams, Adams’ backers called Jefferson a “howling atheist,” while Jefferson’s people charged that Adams would rip up the Constitution and make himself king and his sons would be princes; one son was allegedly going to marry the daughter of King George III! Adams won and did not make himself king.
During the 1800 rematch campaign, Jefferson’s people declared that Adams had ordered an American warship to bring two mistresses from Europe to keep the President happy. Jefferson was called, “the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father,” and Jefferson would put opponents under the guillotine! Jefferson’s supporters countered that their opponent Adams was accused of being a “hideous hermaphroditical character”—half man, half woman. I think they were taking mean pills–double doses!
My father was an uneducated man having dropped out of school in the sixth grade to provide for his mother and younger siblings during the Great Depression. Dad impressed on me many times that “A man who will lie, will do anything.” A liar will do what he or she must do to cover up the lie.
Hillary Clinton is a known liar with the amazing ability to tell three lies in a five word sentence. Now that takes real talent but is not a prerequisite for the presidency. Most sane people would suggest that it disqualifies one for the job. Moreover, in the past a person with character who was caught in a lie would flee in disgrace to a secluded place for the rest of his or her life. But not today.
Doing research for this article, I was overwhelmed with the volume of supporting evidence confirming Hillary’s tendency to lie. Maybe the childhood rhyme, “Liar, liar, pants on fire” was written in her honor.
Donald Trump has promised to build a wall on the southern border to keep drug pushers, terrorists, and tomato pickers from gatecrashing into America without following U.S. rules. Progressives (former liberals who lost the immigration debate and changed their name thinking none of us would notice) have resorted to ridicule–the last resort of the dumb, the deceived, and the demented.
Walls have been used since the beginning of time for defense, privacy, and “to protect the people of a certain region from the influence or perceived danger posed by outsiders.” In fact, an ancient city without walls was an invitation for disaster. Walls discouraged some barbarians, delayed others, and defeated still others.
A well-fortified city with high, wide walls, watchtowers, and iron gates was a good guarantee of peace and prosperity, if not a panacea. The Psalmist said in 122:7, “Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.” Who would want to live or start a business in a vulnerable city? A walled city offered security, stability, and sociality. People who lived outside walled cities were known as “pagans,” and were “rustic,” or “of or relating to the countryside,” and later were thought to be uncivilized or unenlightened people. Yes, I suppose if people chose to live in a violent, unprotected area, they would qualify as “unenlightened.” And dead.
This week the Census Bureau reported that there are 42.4 million legal and illegal immigrants in America that are substantially impacting schools (and other public services), with immigrants making up 23 percent of all public school students. Moreover, the greatest percentage increases are largely from Muslim nations!
According to the Washington Examiner, “The large share of immigrants who arrive as adults with relatively few years of schooling is the primary reason so many live in poverty, use welfare programs, and lack health insurance.” So, if the immigrants don’t pay their share of taxes to support their use of public services, who do you think will do so? Look in the mirror.
Illegal aliens are at this moment destroying America as they have already destroyed many European cities. Yes, I know non-thinking leftists want to call them “undocumented immigrants” but calling an illegal alien an “undocumented immigrant” is like calling a drug dealer an “unlicensed pharmacist.”
Trump is correct about immigration. A weak immigration policy during bad times is dumb; and non-vetted Muslim immigration anytime is dumb, dangerous, and deadly as seen in a recent federal report. There are officially about 5.7 million illegals in America at this time although many conservatives and border watch groups suggest the number to be about 35 million! I revealed in my new bookMuslim Invasion: The Fuse is Burning!that in 2014, for the first time, more Other Than Mexicans (OTMs) were apprehended at the southern border than Mexicans!
The OTMs are from Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, etc., and more than 6,000 OTMs are apprehended each month and they are not here to pick tomatoes. Furthermore, in 2014, Border Patrol agents “seized 1,920,411 pounds of marijuana, 4,443 pounds of cocaine, 9,205 pounds of heroin, and 3,772 pounds of methamphetamine. They also seized $7,351,640 in currency, 475 firearms, and 63,493 rounds of ammunition.” I want to know what else was brought across the border by the hundreds of OTMs that cross each day undetected.
