Wisdom and The Truth

Here is something for everyone to think about....

The following is an email from a Christian pastor and as I read through it I was reminded about the fool who says in his heart, "There is no God."


During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who each explained their beliefs.

I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say.

The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.

After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.

When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven.

If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?' There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, "Non-believers!"

I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'

The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.'

He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.' I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'

The Muslim was speechless!

I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question:

Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?'

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.

Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the Diversification training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslim's beliefs.

In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President!

Now can you understand the importance of listening to the truth? If you are a Christian can you understand the importance of sharing the LOVE of Christ with everyone you meet today?

Man's ignorance in thinking he knows all that there is to be known has always amazed me. True wisdom is gained from what we have experienced in life. There is nothing in this life that you can say for a certainty, unless you have seen, or experienced directly or indirectly that which pertains to your statements, beliefs, or faith. In other words, to say you know God dose not exist just because you personally have not experienced a life changing event is nothing less than pure ignorance.

Unrighteous Leaders ~and The Consequences

For those who refuse the truth of God Word there will be consequences for their sins. The range of this accountability will be great and most severe; If you live by the God's Law then you shall die by God's Law! "For the wages of sin is death..."Roman 6:23

God's Law tells us.
"Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him." 1 John 3:15
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Matthew 5:27-28
“‘If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death." Leviticus 21:10
"They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed .... and the land was desecrated by their blood." Psalm 106:38
There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil,feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness(AA) who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. Proverbs 6:16-19

God's Judgment on Jerusalem’s Sins was spoken through the Prophet Ezekiel while in exile in the land of Babylon and I believe America's judgment will be similar. God is the same today as He was then, as He will be forever and ever.

Abortion is an abomination against God's WORD, it is the shedding of the most innocent blood of all. Anyone that sheds innocent blood is a murderer. Anyone who supports someone who has blood on their hands will also receive the consequences for this action as well. The judgment for murder by God's Law can be nothing less then death.
I will make one more attempt to clarify this statement. By God's Law if you support a politician who has innocent blood on his hands for supporting abortion, then I believe you yourself have received this innocent blood on your hands and the consequences can be nothing less then death. The Old Testament requirement for justice is "an eye for an eye...", but we now live in the age of the New Covenant, the time of Grace for those who have Christ as their Savior.
I am most certain this warning to America can also be extended to the one that supports the politician that supports the Gay Rights agenda. Homosexuality is sexual perversion and an abomination against God's WORD. Abominations against God's WORD can not be wished away. But God promises complete forgiveness of our sins once we sincerely turn from and forsake them. So, praise God they can be forgiven and your sins washed away by the the BLOOD of the LAMB, our LORD and SAVIOR, Jesus Christ. Once again I must make clear that while God hates abortion and homosexuality, He still has love for those involved. It is the action that is an abomination to the Lord and He holds us accountable for those actions. We must remember that all sin is intolerable by God and to compare the seriousness of one sin to another is simply an act of futility. If Jesus didn't die on the Cross for all sins, both small and large, then He would have died in vain. Thankfully that is not the case, His blood cleans us of all sin!

Simply put, Grace can be defined as God's unmerited favor. God's Grace is something God does for the benefit of His people because He loves them. Grace can never be earned, it's totally free. But please understand this, Forgiveness and Grace are not given so one may continue to sin.

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.
Ps. 25:14 (NKJ)

Unrighteous Leaders ~ America

The following came from an email which was sent to me.


Should Christians Support President Obama?

Dr. David Barton was on Dr. Charles Stanley's program "In Touch" as a guest speaker. Dr. Barton is more of a historian than a Biblical speaker, but very famous for his knowledge of historical facts as well as Biblical truths.

Dr. David Barton - on President Obama

Respect the Office? Yes.

Respect the Man in the Office? No, I am sorry to say.

I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Pres. Obama.
Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Pres. Obama!
I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT not for his success.
I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President!
Why am I doing this?

It is because:
- I do not share Pres.Obama's vision or value system for America;
- I do not share his Abortion beliefs;
- I do not share his radical Marxist's concept of re-distributing wealth;
- I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);
- I do not share his view that America is Arrogant as he stated to numerous foreign governments;
- I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;
- I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;
- I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegal immigrants than our American Citizens who need help;
- I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;
- I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land;
- I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);
- I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the health care system in America;
- I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East;
- I certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.

Bottom line:
My America is vastly different from Pres. Obama's, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right!
For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!
They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country!
They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant!
They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years!
They have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country!
They have made every effort to remove the name of GOD or Jesus Christ from our Society!
They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code!
They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!
Unite behind Pres. Obama? Never!
I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!

PRESIDENT BUSH made many mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him. However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!
Majority rules in America, and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Pres. Obama and his "goals for America ..."
I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country! Any more compromise is more defeat!
I pray that the results of this (Past) election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-GOD crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America!

GOD bless you and GOD bless our Country!
(Please, please, please, pass this on if you agree. If you don't agree, just delete it.)

Thanks for your time, may you and yours be safe.
"In GOD We Trust"

Dr. David Barton

Unrighteous Leaders

An Evangelical Christian who strives to be the man that God wants me to be and who is far from being perfect. As God desires of all those who call upon His name, I am required to share what God reveals to me, so that others may hear the truth. I am also required to pray for those who are in authority over me.

I thoroughly believe that Barack Hussein Obama II was God's chosen man to be president because this is the man that Americans deserves at this time. God in His wisdom, as His plan unfolds, chooses both the righteous and unrighteous to be in positions of authority. Of course this is dependant upon the situation and hearts and attitudes of the people. America has become a nation with many who harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in their hearts, they even boast about it or they will deny the truth when the evidence reveals their motives for this unrighteous behavior.
A great many Americans, not only just our leaders, have become prideful and arrogant thinking that there is no nation to rival ours. In their vanity believing that their wisdom, which was all due to their own initiative, has made America great. They have no Fear of the LORD, they may say they believe in God, they may read a Bible, they may even listen to a sermon, but there are virtually no changes or good fruit in their lives to prove there is a belief in Sovereign God.

God is the giver of life, the giver of all good things in life, from wisdom, to understanding. As Christians we should not just choose that which pleases us. We should weigh our thoughts, needs and desires with godly wisdom, so that we would not be found sinning against a Holy and Righteous God.
As a Christian I am called to pray for Pres. Obama and all others in leadership that their hearts may be softened and turned to the One and only True God of all Creation, the God that brought His children out of bondage from the land of Egypt, that they may be the ones to introduce the One True God to all nations. The Israelites failed their commission, to go into all the world to proclaim liberty and freedom from the bondage of sin throughout the land to all its inhabitants; so now God has raised up the Christian church to share His Word with the world.

Woe, to the unrighteous nations, for God judges the corruptible judges and leaders; both in governments and in churches for their iniquities more severely, than that of the people of the nations.

As revealed many times in the Bible, God used several unrighteous leaders in Israel, to draw the hearts of man back to a Holy and Righteous God Who desires only the best for those that seek Him.

If man fails to listen to the truth, will he be held accountable for his actions? Yes! And ignorance of God's moral laws will not be an excuse on Judgement Day.

The second part to this post, titled; Unrighteous Leaders ~ America, should be posted in a day or two.
