I’ve always felt that one of the most revealing things about a person is the company they keep. This was confirmed over this latest troll invasion on my Short Little Rebel page on Facebook. Liberal Lukewarmers stood side by side with the most satanic forces on earth and flooded this page with incredible amounts of hate. They, themselves, didn’t blaspheme God and Christ. But all the friends they came with did. What does this say about these Lukewarmers? They weren’t bothered (more…)

If you don’t read your bible, you have no idea what you are missing. I have been a ‘technical’ Christian since I can really remember having logical thought. By this, I mean that I’ve always known who Jesus was and I always accepted him as my Lord and Savior. This is due to my mother who made us all go to bible school every Sunday. But I never read the bible. I knew the stories from church- but not the actual scripture. I thought I knew all that needed to be known. But one (more…)

Since the Pope’s words have catapulted Catholicism into the limelight, we have heard many comments from its followers that somehow Luther ‘lured’ people wrongly from the one, true church and that ‘everyone’ had held the Maccabees (the books that speak of Purgatory) to be the Word of God until Luther came and ‘rewrote’ the bible. They claim (though the Pope never made this claim) that when the Pope said someone who didn’t believe in God could still get to heaven with a ‘contrite heart’, he was speaking about their time in Purgatory. I decided to brush up on my history to ensure I remembered it correctly.
Interestingly enough, it was around the time when the Catholic Church decided to sell ‘indulgences’ (that let someone out of Purgatory!) that Luther began writing vehemently against the Catholic Church. Church corruption was at an all time high and the Church had suffered many scandals. The church was quarreling with monarchs over political and economic issues (taxes- how droll). And the industrial revolution was changing everything- from land based economy to cash based. The church began to be impoverished and decided that they would sell ‘indulgences’ which would allow someone to avoid Purgatory. This became big business- but outraged those among the common people- who couldn’t afford this spiritual luxury. (more…)

I have a reason for addressing this question right now. It specifically deals with the defense many die-hard Pope defenders are giving for his recent words that seem to be saying that atheists can still go to heaven. They claim, though the Pope never made such a claim, that the Pope was referencing ‘purgatory’ when he said those explosive words. Therefore, to understand the issue when talking to Catholics, you must understand the differences between their bible and our bible and WHY they are different.

Most of my Christian friends have called Catholicism a cult. I have never agreed. But having observed these Catholics attacking me in such a vile manner has opened my eyes to an inherent danger in Catholicism- namely, their disobedience to Christ’s command that we never call a human, ‘Father’ or ‘Rabbi’ or even, ‘Teacher’. Because the Catholic Church chose to disobey this clear command outlined in fine detail in the entire chapter of Matthew 23, they now suffer from a significant percentage of people who idolize the pope. The people who are attacking me actually say that I am ‘blaspheming’ against the Pope! Imagine that. Blaspheming a mere man. How can that be? One can only blaspheme against God! To some, the Pope has become God. This is what comes of disobeying Christ.
These very same people also show a huge deficit in scriptural learning. Many actually say that the Old Testament is no longer valid. And due to this ignorance, they say that God’s specific order to Ezekiel to warn others of their sin is no longer valid. Therefore, in their minds, we are not to ‘judge’ the Pope. And yet, they also refuse to respond to the New Testament scripture where Jesus expressly commands us to not call anyone ‘Father’ except God- where he told us that we are all equal- spiritual brothers. I am convinced that the Catholic’s disobedience on this command is what is causing such a problem today. This Pope, who clearly wishes to lead the world into a new ‘progressive’ notion of Christ, will easily lead hundreds of thousands to their death.
Jesus knew what he was saying. His commands are for a reason. By creating a priesthood, with ever higher orders of priests, they create the illusion that the higher up the priest ladder you go, the holier you are. And thus, the Pope must be a perfect, or near perfect man. One woman said that the Holy Spirit would never allow the Pope to say anything wrong. To her, the Pope is somehow so closely attached the to Holy Spirit that his free will is gone. As if the Holy Spirit and the Pope are one. That is why they say I ‘blaspheme’ against the pope. Because they have put him on a pedestal and are convinced that they are the spiritual plebeians while he is the spiritual king. And because of this belief in his spiritual infallibility, they will follow him anywhere. THIS is why Christ told us to not call anyone ‘Father’ or ‘Rabbi’ or even ‘Teacher’. It gives one man the power to lead millions to their death.
Christ understands the human need to worship. He understands how easily we can be swayed away from true God worship to idol worship. THAT is the danger of disobedience. What may look small to you can result in a grave situation. Jesus dedicated few words to this topic. And perhaps people think, ‘Aw, that can’t be too much of a big deal, right? I mean, it isn’t as bad as embezzling or murder, right?’ Wrong. Putting one man above another in the spiritual realm is a terrible thing and results in human worship. As we are seeing.
The pope is not a good man. I am not a good woman. We are all plagued with dirty sin. The difference between the pope and me is our relative influence on the world. The same Catholics who are berating me now wish to bring up Christ and how he ate with the ‘sinners’. But do you also realize how very, very harsh he was to the priests? He dedicated an entire speech, full of ‘woes’ and the word, ‘hypocrite’ to them! It is the most scathing speech from Jesus I have ever read. I believe the reason he was kind to the ‘regular’ sinners and harsh with the priests is because of the immense influence these men had on society. Jesus knew that the priests were completely aware of their gross hypocrisy and sin- which made them far more culpable than ‘regular’ sinners. One of the sins he laid on the priests was that they would not enter the kingdom of heaven and they would ensure that no one else entered either. He said, ““Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.” Their false teachings prevented others from finding God. It was the intention, within the snake like hearts of the priests, that truly angered Jesus. The ‘regular’ sinners only hurt themselves & so, required compassion. The priests knowingly harmed thousands and so, required severe censor.
Jesus’ command and warning to never call any human, ‘Father’ came directly before he delivered this scathing condemnation on the priests in Matthew 23. They go together- a warning to us and the censor of the priests. To me, the greatest error of the Catholic Church is the disobedience to Christ’s command that we do not set up a spiritual hierarchy of men. It won’t be child molestation that brings down the Catholic Church, it will be THIS disobedience that will do it.
Matt 23: 23-36
23 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
5 “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries[a] wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. 11 The greatest among you will be your servant. 12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
13 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.
16 “Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.’ 17 You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? 18 You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.’ 19 You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? 20 Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. 21 And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. 22 And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s throne and by the one who sits on it.
23 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
25 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
27 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.
29 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. 30 And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!
33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? 34 Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. 35 And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Truly I tell you, all this will come on this generation.

It looks like Edward B. Myers, 35, who set his girlfriend’s 7 year old boy on fire and then used his cell phone to film the assault as he watched the boy burn. He also allowed his own two sons, one of whom set the 7 year old on fire, watch. The mother came home to find her son with burns across 10% of his body.
When a culture abandons God, it gets demons. There is no ‘WHY??’ to this situation. The reason is clear. The man is demon possessed. Demon possession is not like the Exorcist movie. It looks like this man. And his son, whom he has cursed with his abandonment of God. Look at his eyes. THAT is a demon. What makes a man a human being? Those that hate God would argue that we are merely the highest life form in the animal kingdom. But I would argue that we are NOT equivalent to animals. When a human being has given up their soul, they become much lower than animals. Because animals are innocent creatures. They have no evil- no cruelty. They eat when hungry and in turn, get eaten. All is fair in their world. No so in ours. Mankind is not human, or humane, without a soul linked firmly to God, from whom the most essential essence of humanity derives. Take God out and you automatically take the essence of man out. And you invite the essence of satan in. This essence is called a demon. The person so possessed needs no reason to do evil. They are evil. These actions are a by product of their possession. (more…)

My impersonators are still at it. Is that not amazing? Apparently, since they lost the battle against me on FB, they have moved to more obscure venues. Mostly homosexual sites. Then they direct them to my Short Little Rebel FB page or my home phone number or my home address- photos & all- even though they know I have young children. It baffles my mind. Are there not bigger targets? I can only conclude with this thought: Jesus in politics is the most dangerous threat to these people. There are many bigger conservative writers. There are many bigger Christian writers. But there are only a tiny few of us who dare to put the two together so boldly- and get an audience doing so. To say that Jesus is THE political answer is to threaten these people at some visceral level. Their tenacity proves it.
In addition, Facebook continues to dampen the results of my Short Little Rebel page. (more…)

“Is THIS what God calls ‘good’?”
First, I do not believe there is such a thing as a homosexual community. I believe there is such a thing as a community that practices homosexuality. While the point seems minor, it is an important delineation. Is it possible that the tiniest fraction of the human population is curious or drawn to these practices? Perhaps. After all, animal populations show this deviation. But not in the percentages that the human population is now displaying. And we are NOT mere animals. We are soulful beings with minds & hearts to go along with our physical bodies. And we belong to a Maker to whom we owe obedience. Regardless of our personal desires or temptations. God states very clearly that he detests homosexual practices. This is stated clearly in both the Old and New Testaments. And while most homosexuals deny that Jesus spoke against the practice, he did. Jesus specifically defined marriage as between a man and a woman. NOT because of historical ‘norms’ that need special interpretation in today’s culture- but because God created us as man and woman. No historic or cultural understanding needed.
(Matt 19:3-9) “3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” 4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a] 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” 7 “Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?” 8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”
This passage makes it clear that ALL sex outside of marriage was sinful. And marriage can only be a man and a woman. Thus, homosexuality is automatically outside the bounds of marriage and thus, sinful in Jesus’ eyes.
I believe this is why you will almost always find that those who practice homosexuality also claim that either God is non-existent or that the Apostle Paul & Timothy (who wrote most of the New Testament and condemned this practice) was a false prophet. They fail to take Jesus’ rather clear statement into account.
Guess what? Since God is King, he sets the rules. After all, people are also tempted to cheat on their spouses, steal, lie, kill, etc. And because God forbids it, we don’t get to do it. Practicing homosexuality is the same- God said, “No.” So the answer is no!
If this community was not ashamed of their behavior, why are they all so interested in negating the Bible’s words on the matter? Why, if they are so convinced that God approves of their behavior, can’t they exist peaceably with Jesus and those who follow him? Why the rabid hate?
As for Gay Marriage, I view this as purely political. It is a means used by Progressives to destroy the family unit. Why? Because the FAMILY unit is the number one way that any society can properly teach, disperse resources and raise functional and independent citizens. Wreck this and you will get a new population that will be mentally crippled and dependent on Uncle Sam for everything. This is the number one goal of the Progressive movement: to gain complete power over its citizens by making them dependent on it for basic needs.
And Gay Adoption? This is purely and simply child abuse. In every way possible way. Sexual identity and sexual role modeling are almost 100% learned in the home as children soak in everything between their parents. They decide what they want to be as a man or woman and what they don’t want to be- all by watching their parents’ interactions. Uncle Bob or Auntie Kathy will NOT be able to put in the face time to fill this role in any child’s life. Without this type of daily learning, a child must struggle terribly to understand themselves as a man or as a woman. As sexual identity is one of the most important ways in which we define ourselves, I believe this is intentional child abuse and should NEVER be allowed. Are there children whose parents have died? Yes, and it’s very tragic & tough for those kids. But why would we intentionally put children in this situation? Adoption rules are extremely strict- they discriminate on income, home cleanliness, education & age. Homosexuality should also be a discriminatory factor.Many, many lukewarm Christians have never read their Bible and so are not armed properly for spiritual warfare. Thus, they condone that which they should not. They actually help satan destroy souls- and our country. Many will claim (because they heard it somewhere- kinda like ‘separation of church & state’) that the Old Testament Law is DEAD. Completely false. That is about the most irresponsible paraphrase of Apostle Paul’s deep thoughts concerning Jewish laws that made people DO rituals to make themselves righteous before God again. He merely stated that the old rules about sacrifices, cleansing rituals, eating rituals, priesthood rituals, etc, were no longer necessary because Jesus was the final sacrifice that would clean us and make us righteous before God. Jesus’ body & blood were so far more superior as a sacrifice to God than any number of beef shanks or birds, or cups of wheat could ever be. His sacrifice of himself was so magnificent in God’s eyes that it SUFFICED for all of us, for all time. THAT was Paul’s point. NOT that the entire Old Testament, which displays God’s personality and views on moral/ immoral behavior, is somehow negated! Jesus was EXTRA clear on the matter when he said,
“17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
Thus all Old Testament laws and statements that judge homosexual sex as sinful remain standing as they had nothing to do with purification or priesthood rites to obtain righteousness before God. In addition, IF the Old Testament ‘Law’ were all dead, so would the ten commandments be. Nonsense.
And here are the laws about homosexuality written in several books of the Old and New Testaments:
Romans 1:18-32 “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Timothy 1: 8-11 8 But we know that the law is good if a man use it lawfully,
9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 for whoremongers, for those who defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjurers, and for whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine
11 according to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
Leviticus 20:13 13“‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
Leviticus 18:20-29 20 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife and defile yourself with her.
21 “‘Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.
22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.
24 “‘Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. 25 Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. 26 But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, 27 for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. 28 And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you.
29 “‘Everyone who does any of these detestable things—such persons must be cut off from their people.
Duet 22:5 5 A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this..
Judges 19:22-24 22 While they were enjoying themselves, some of the wicked men of the city surrounded the house. Pounding on the door, they shouted to the old man who owned the house, “Bring out the man who came to your house so we can have sex with him.”
23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, don’t be so vile. Since this man is my guest, don’t do this outrageous thing.
1Kings 15:11-13 1 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.
12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol and burned it by the Brook Kidron.
2 Kings 23:4-7 4 And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels that were made for Baal and for the Asherah pole and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
5 And he put down the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places round about Jerusalem, those also who burned incense unto Baal, to the sun and to the moon and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
6 And he brought out the Asherah pole from the house of the Lord outside Jerusalem unto the Brook Kidron, and burned it at the Brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.
7 And he broke down the houses of the sodomites that were by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Asherah pole.

A reader was upset because a friend posted that if no one could come up with a ‘non-religious’ reason against gay marriage, then all opposition is ‘STUPID’. Here is my response to her:
Your friend is lost. She thinks of Christ as ‘religion’ when he simply IS. Same with God. The entire statement is unanswerable because it presupposes that she has any other choice than to obey God. Or that we can choose to ‘believe’ in him. I am beginning to think that God set homosexuality up as a stumbling block for humanity. Even pagans will agree about not stealing, not killing, etc. But sex? The pagan mind balks and say, “who is hurt? where is the victim? how does it hurt ME? Their ‘morality’ is self oriented- and is thus, not moral and certainly is nothing to admire. “I want to make a law that prevents others from hurting me.” This is morality at it’s most basic form.
Pagan morality is not based on the commandments of God. So, for them, they have no respect for the commands of God- only in their self preservation. (more…)

Rarely do I find such a great investigative blogger and Christian who knows her bible as this Sunny Shell, who writes a Christian blog called, “Abandoned to Christ”. I hadn’t wanted to watch the History Channel’s “The Bible” because they always misrepresent the Bible, God and Jesus. Always. But some friends were hootin’ and hollerin’ over it. Today, a reader posted Ms. Shell’s incredibly well written review of the movie. She hits the most salient points and demonstrates how badly the writers & directors of the film have gotten it. Don’t watch this Progressive hogwash. It is satanically close to the Bible. But also satanically far away enough that souls will be lost because of it….
“About a week ago, I was contacted by the History Channel’s media group asking me to help promote “The Bible”, a new mini-series that was created and produced by Roma Downey, (Touched By An Angel) with her husband Mark Burnett (producer: The Voice, Survivor, Shark Tank, Celebrity Apprentice).
After prayerfully reviewing the materials and consulting with my wise husband, I stated that I am unable to participate in promoting this endeavor due to its highly unbiblical content, as well as their portrayal of championing the virility of man while palliating the glory, righteousness and holiness of God.
God our Father revealed Himself through His holy word (the real Bible) to proclaim:
- God’s righteousness;
- Man’s depravity;
- Humanity’s desperate need for a Savior—the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
From the words of the creators and producers of not-“The Bible” mini-series, their purpose is to portray God:
- As an angry God who punishes the “bad” people and curses the “good” people who disobey;
- As a really cool deity who still blesses all the “good” people no matter what they do;
- Whose ultimate desire is to “change the world”, make people nicer and happier through social reform and show all humanity the “good” we all have within ourselves.
Beloved saints of the Lord Jesus Christ, I share this review out of my abiding love and devotion to our heavenly Father, my great love and compassion for God’s elect, and those who are still lost. Please, be careful what you teach and what you condone.

Friends. It seems as if my article “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin?” That’s Not What God or Jesus Do!”, really hit a nerve. Here’s why:
Jesus said that only a few would find heaven. I believe it. The Bible talks about how many would fall away from the true teachings of Christ and God. What IS the true teaching of Jesus and God? Where do we find it? There is only one source. It is not at church. It is not in your pastor. It is not in your family. It is not anywhere in this world except in one place: The Holy Bible. If you fail to read the Bible, you do not know Jesus’ or God’s Word. If you only go to church, but don’t read your Bible, you do not have God’s Word. God’s Word is deep & wide. It encompasses the breadth of God’s mind, heart and intent. How can you learn that in one hour once every 7 days- if you go that often?? The answer is: you can’t. Without God’s word, you are, at best- a weak Christian. You are vulnerable to satan’s influences. You can be confused easily. You can certainly be defeated by those who follow the father of lies. Without God’s word, you are unprepared to run the race and endure to the end. Salvation was never promised as a guaranteed thing. It is not a magic potion. It is not a charm. You can lose your salvation. And if you do not have the true word of God, how will you be able to withstand the machinations of a brilliant, dark angel of death? (more…)

The statement ‘love the sinner but hate the sin” is just one of many lies being spread by this new Milquetoast Christianity. It is not in the Bible at all- no one uttered those words or those sentiments. God literally hated the sinner too sometimes. Certain sins made him angrier than others. This statement is not biblical in any sense I see. It is, in fact, contradictory to what God does. God is shown, quite a few times in the Old Testament, to hate the PEOPLE themselves. We have an awesome and fearful God.

with you, evil people are not welcome.

6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest. Psalm 5:4-6
He observes everyone on earth;
his eyes examine them.
5 The Lord examines the righteous,
but the wicked, those who love violence,
he hates with a passion.
6 On the wicked he will rain
fiery coals and burning sulfur;
a scorching wind will be their lot. 7 For the Lord is righteous,
he loves justice;
the upright will see his face. -Psalm 11:4-7

People who actively participate in homosexuality are a teeny tiny minority of voters. So… why do YOU think Obama takes so very much time out of his day to court them? Even going to bat for them with the Supreme Court- against the constitution and against the Will of the People of California? Why stick his neck out for a number of people that can not possibly change the results of an election?
You need to put spiritual glasses on.
Homosexual behavior is so diametrically opposed to the Christian Bible that the more people who support it and practice it, the more so-atheists you will produce. Yes, it even produces so-called atheists out of the group that supports them. The more we accept this practice as ‘good’ and ‘moral’ and ‘equal’ to what God intended, the more we create a society that thinks it has the ‘right’ to throw away God’s commandments. The more a society thinks it can determine which of God’s commandments are relevant and good and worthy, the more mankind puts itself above God. And that, my friends, opens the door to Satan. And that giant, broad, easy, beautiful highway that leads straight to death.
See, the practice of homosexuality and the support of those who practice it creates a CULTURE that is DISOBEDIENT to God. THAT is the ticket and the goal of the satanic Progressives. This is the hole in the dike. (more…)

It is unusual for me to feel the need to speak against the Catholic Church. Mostly because I believe that their theology is basically sound and centered on Christ as our ONLY salvation and NOT on good works or the machinations of any human. Yes, they have a priesthood. Yes, they have saints. Yes, they have Mary. But none of it crosses the threshold of the WORSHIP of pagans or diminishing Christ by saying he was only a human and not divine. Catholic theology still holds Christ as the one and only Savior- and that he and he alone is empowered to save by grace and not by works.
There ARE current popular ‘religions’ that do cross this line into paganism: Mormonism and Seventh Day Adventists are just two of the more popular ones. They do not pass the test because Christ is only human to them. Both these ideologies believe that mere humans will be equal to Christ and God. They diminish Christ because they believe that GOOD WORKS are 100% necessary to salvation. What nonsense!
All that being said, I can not understand how the Catholic priesthood believes it has the right to SUCH levels of secrecy! Especially when dealing with child rapists. Their internal probe into sexual misconduct of the priests who raped children as well as their internal probe into the 2012 Vatican leak are known only to four people: the pope and three cardinals.

Anyone who thinks the Bible is BORING has NOT read it. It is UTTERLY fascinating. The Sunni/Shiite division among Arabs was FORETOLD- also the ARAB vs. Israeli conflict. They are all, literally, blood brothers- all stemming from Abraham. The Arabs stemmed mostly from Ishmael- the first son of Abraham born to him by his concubine/second wife, Hagar. Israelis are blood related to Isaac, the second son born to Abraham by his first wife, Sarah. Sarah hated Hagar because Hagar mocked her for her infertility. When she was pregnant and gave birth to a SON (so important back then to keep families & wealth together), she became intolerable to Sarah. (what HUMAN drama, huh?). So when Sarah miraculously gets pregnant in her old age with Isaac, she tells her husband that there was no way that HER son would share his inheritance with Ishmael, Hagar’s son. She wanted BOTH of them booted from the family. Abraham loved Ishmael and didn’t want to boot him (soap opera, anyone?), but God told him to listen to Sarah. That he would take care of Ishmael- but he would establish his covenant with ISAAC. Ishmael went on to father the Arab nation- most of whom chose to worship a pagan god, Allah. The Israelis went on to continue their worship of God. God later, purposely defined himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob- to eliminate ALL doubt about his Being. As Arabs do not buy into the whole Isaac & Jacob part of God’s definition, they do not worship God- but the pagan idol, allah. (more…)

Oh, this is just rich (no pun intended…ok, I admit it, pun intended)! Only the O’s have increased their wealth by TEN TIMES in the last four years!!!! They stared as millionaires and are now millionaires ten times over. And they lambast RICH people? Wanna know why? Because their wealth doesn’t come from being a BUSINESS OWNER, it comes from their POLITICS. Victim politics. Race politics. Hate politics. And politics of DIVISION- ALL of it made them rich- even Obama’s victim biographies were about politics. They don’t hate rich people (au contraire!) They just hate business people. The medium & little ones. From the very wealthy ones, they will soak up every penny. (more…)

Thank you to my fellow Christian blogger, wdednh, for this important alert concerning the a new Bible translation being released. Without the type of vigilance of Christians like wdednh , many naïve and new Christians would fall prey to the deceitful world of Satan.
There are many translations of The Holy Bible. Some are very accurate and some are not so. The copy right laws makes it very hard for translators to do their job properly, however there are some words and names which are not effected by any copy right laws, words and names such as God, Jesus Christ and Angels and few more. And when translation come about such as the following which omit or changes the above mentioned under the false pretense of “Easier Understanding,” we as believers have to be aware and expose these ungodly efforts!

Another new Bible is making its way onto the shelves of Christian bookstores and the Sam’s Club religious section, touted by its publisher as a fresh and easy-to-understand translation for those who may own a Bible, but never read it.
The most recent Bible offering from religious publisher Thomas Nelson is entitled The Voice, and in an effort to make Scripture more palatable to 21st-century readers un-attuned to the customary language of the Christian faith, the translators have inserted some creative alternatives to age-old terms, causing some concerns among more tradition-minded Christians.
For example, the name “Jesus Christ” has been replaced with “Jesus the Anointed One or the liberating king,” reported USA Today. “That’s a more accurate translation for modern American readers, says David Capes

I believe first and foremost in the power, righteousness and worthiness of God – the Great I Am- to be worshipped.
Yes, worshipped. Worship goes against the grain of the American spirit, which is why I believe we are so easily tempted to reject the notion of God. We rebelled against worship when we refused to recognize the Pope and the King of England as our kings. Why? Because God created every man equal and hence, no man deserved worship. Only God did. When America needed help to survive our original pilgrimage to this land, we worshipped Him. When America needed God to help them achieve victory over our foreign enemies, we worshipped Him. But now that America is the most powerful country in the world, like so many spoiled children, we assume we did it all on our own. By rejecting the worthiness of God to be worshipped and loved, we lose the very Strength that brought us to greatness.
I believe that Jesus is the son of God.
That Jesus allowed himself to be killed- for our sake. Why? I think Jesus needed to step in between Man & God because God could not stand us & our sin any longer. Mankind had failed the original tests of obedience (the Tree of Life & The Ten Commandments)- the power of Satan was too great for him. God, in disgust, killed us all except one favored family. He promised not to destroy again, but I think He wanted to after a while. I think Jesus stepped in and made a deal with God. He proposed that man should not be judged for his actions- but only for his love & faith in God. The new test would be a simple one: simply accept Jesus as the only way to God, and thus acknowledge that God IS God, and Man would be saved from annihilation. Faith and love in and of God would be enough. God would remove Satan at a given time and thus, all further temptation and Man would be one with God again.
While the above is my own speculation, the evidence for Jesus & God in Bible prophecy is overwhelming. And yet, people will not even look at it. They wish to remain ignorant in the hopes of innocence. Like Percy Grimm in Faulkner’s “Light of August” , people who refuse to evaluate the morality of their own actions are still guilty of the crimes they commit. There is no such thing as, “I didn’t know. I was just following orders- I was just attending to my business.” (more…)
