On the Fox home page this morning they said this was the top video and had already 11 million viewings. It's short and you won't be sorry you watched. Will make you proud to be an American!
The text below is true according to truthorfiction.com:

"Ready for a shock? Below is an article from the London Times about our military. Interesting, it is! Our media coverage is shameful!

Winning Isn’t News
By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY

Iraq: What would happen if the U.S. won a war but the media didn't tell the American public? Apparently, we have to rely on a British newspaper for the news that we've defeated the last remnants of al-Qaida in Iraq .

London's Sunday Times called it 'the culmination of one of the most spectacular victories of the war on terror.' A terrorist force that once numbered more than 12,000, with strongholds in the west and central regions of Iraq, has over two years been reduced to a mere 1,200 fighters, backed against the wall in the northern city of Mosul.

The destruction of al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI) is one of the most unlikely and unforeseen events in the long history of American warfare. We can thank President Bush's surge strategy, in which he bucked both Republican and Democratic leaders in Washington by increasing our forces there instead of surrendering.

We can also thank the leadership of the new general he placed in charge there, David Petraeus, who may be the foremost expert in the world on counter-insurgency warfare. And we can thank those serving in our military in Iraq who engaged local Iraqi tribal leaders and convinced them America was their friend and AQI their enemy.

Al-Qaida's loss of the hearts and minds of ordinary Iraqis began in Anbar Province, which had been written off as a basket case, and spread out from there.

Now, in Operation Lion's Roar the Iraqi army and the U.S. 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment is destroying the fraction of terrorists who are left. More than 1,000 AQI operatives have already been apprehended.

Sunday Times reporter Marie Colvin, traveling with Iraqi forces in Mosul, found little AQI presence even in bullet-ridden residential areas that were once insurgency strongholds, and reported that the terrorists have lost control of its Mosul urban base, with what is left of the organization having fled south into the countryside.

Meanwhile, the State Department reports that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's government has achieved 'satisfactory' progress on 15 of the 18 political benchmarks 'a big change for the better from a year ago.'

Things are going so well that Maliki has even for the first time floated the idea of a timetable for withdrawal of American forces. He did so while visiting the United Arab Emirates , which over the weekend announced that it was forgiving almost $7 billion of debt owed by Baghdad, an impressive vote of confidence from a fellow Arab state in the future of a free Iraq.

But where are the headlines and the front-page stories about all this good news? As the Media Research Center pointed out last week, 'the CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News and CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 were silent Tuesday night about the benchmarks 'that signaled political progress.'

The war in Iraq has been turned around180 degrees both militarily and politically because the president stuck to his guns. Yet apart from IBD, Fox News Channel and parts of the foreign press, the media don't seem to consider this historic event a big story.

Copyright 2008 Investor's Business Daily. All Rights Reserved.

Addendum: The reason you haven't seen this on American television or read about it in the American press is simple--journalism is 'dead' in this country. They are controlled by Liberal Democrats who would rather see our troops defeated than recognize a successful Republican initiated response to 9/11."

The biased liberal press keeps telling America that Obama is going to win and by a lot. They have hidden and hushed up the abundant negative truths about him. They have viciously attacked Ms. Palin, who's worst "offense" is that she DIDN'T kill her downs syndrome child and LOVES it.

Their plan is to keep telling us that Obama's winning to dishearten us so we throw our arms up and say, "There's no point in voting. My vote won't count." and stay home.

Don't let the manipulating, biased, liberal media STEAL this election!

Show them that Americans can't be led around by a ring in our nose!
Show them that Americans CAN and DO think for themselves!
Show them that Americans aren't all lazy and WILL do their own research for the TRUTH!
Show them that Americans can tell LIES when they hear them!
Show them that Americans wants to stay FREE and not be made socialist and comunist!
Show them that Americans are STILL willing to fight for the right to worship the one and ONLY God Almighty who has so blessed this country and made her great, just as we fought in the beginning!
Show them that Americans will still today BAND TOGETHER TO PROTECT OUR RIGHTS, OUR FREEDOMS, AND OUR BELOVED COUNTRY!

God bless America! GET OUT AND VOTE ON ELECTION DAY!
Drive others to the polls and be sure they know the truth!
Join Christians all across America praying at 9PM eastern time, 8PM central, etc. every night.
Monday is a national day of fasting and praying for this election...please join us and lift our petition before the very throne of God who is able to do immeasurably more than we can imagine!

I received this e-mail and it is terribly important so I'm sharing it with you:

"Be on alert for this book. Make sure it doesn't end up in your kids hands or home.

If you have children or grandchildren, work with children at church, or you have neighborhood children whose parents you know, please take note of the information below and pass it along to others. Schools are distributing this book to children through the Scholastic Book Club.

The name of the book is Conversations With God. James Dobson talked about this book twice this week. It is devastating. Parents, churches and Christian schools need to be aware of it. Please pass this information on to church/e-mail addresses, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends.

Please pay special attention not only to what your kids watch on TV, in movie theaters, on the internet, and the music they listen to, but also be alert regarding the books they read.

Two particular books are, Conversations With God and Conversations With God For Teens, written by Neale D. Walsch. they sound harmless enough by their titles alone. The books have been on the New York Times best sellers list for a number of weeks, and they make truth of the statement, "Don't judge a book by it's cover" or title.

The author purports to answer various questions asked by kids using the 'voice of God'. However, the 'answers' that he gives are not Bible-based and go against the very infallible Word of God.

  • For instance (and I paraphrase), when a girl asks the question, 'Why am I a lesbian?' His answer is that she was 'born that way' because of genetics (just as you were born right-handed, with brown eyes, etc.). Then He tells her to go out and 'celebrate' her differences.
  • Another girl poses the question, 'I am living with my boyfriend. My parents say that I should marry him because I am living in sin. Should I marry him?' His reply is, 'Who are you sinning against? Not Me, because you have done nothing wrong.'
  • Another question asks about God's forgiveness of sin. His reply, 'I do not forgive anyone because there is nothing to forgive. There is no such thing as right or wrong and that is what I have been trying to tell everyone, do no judge people. People have chosen to judge one another and this is wrong, because the rule is 'judge not lest ye be judged'.' Not only are these books the false doctrine of the devil, but in some instances quote (in error) the Word of God.
And the list goes on. These books (and others like it) are being sold to schoolchildren through (The Scholastic Book Club), and we need to be aware of what is being fed to our children.

Our children are under attack. So I pray that you be sober and vigilant about teaching your children the Word of God, and guarding their exposure to worldly mediums, because our adversary, the devil, roams about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). WE know that lions usually hunt for the slowest, weakest and YOUNGEST of its prey.

Pass this on to every Believer you know. God bless! And if you are in doubt, check out the books yourself."

Many are wondering how so many Americans are so deceived by Obama. So many red flags. So many FACTS telling us he is dangerous, his plans for our beloved country are for it's destruction and he should not be elected. Even facts showing he does not meet basic constitutional requirements for the office of President of the United States of America. Yet so many seem to not hear, not see, not care. They are rushing our country headlong into destruction while crowds are rejoicing and hailing him as "Messiah" and he does not object, which no true Christian could do. Blasphemy in the highest degree!

How is this happening? It is foretold in the Bible. For decades America has been pushing God out of our country, our schools, our government, our history - even to the point of rewriting it to remove Him. America has decided that we ourselves take the place of God. Whatever "I" want to do or have is fine and my "right" because we have "progressed" and are "modern". There are no absolute "rights" and "wrongs". Morality is disdained as evil and aberrant behavior, immorality and perversion as normal and virtuous. There is virtue in embracing every sin and false religion in the name of "tolerance". It is now wrong and "hate" to speak the words of Truth that have the power to save souls from eternal damnation. "Politically correct" speech has robbed us of our constitutional right to free speech of the Truth while all manner of filth and evil is protected and fills our print and airways.

"...because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. 2 Thessalonians" 2:10-12

All the promises of God are conditional. "If" we do such and such, He promises to do such and such. America as a whole has renounced our side of the agreement that gave us God's blessings and protection. For the sake of the remnant of the faithful He has spared us so far. But He is no longer obligated to protect or bless America as we have broken the covenant our forefathers made to be faithful to Him, love Him and keep His laws. We deserve what we are being threatened with, but it can still be changed.

"If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

This is a spiritual battle, not a flesh battle. And it is hiding behind the race card. Do not be fooled! This is more serious than hardly anyone realizes.

Don't forget to pray every night at 9PM eastern, 8 Central etc. for this election!
Pray against the democratic voter fraud that has already been happening for weeks in massive numbers through Acorn, which Obama is closely tied to as it's former council. One dead person was registered democratic 72 times! A goldfish has been registered!

Have mercy on us oh Lord!
God save America!

Here's your freebie part of the Pumpkin Patch kit. There are still several beautiful backgrounds, a frame, acorns and a couple more gourds for you, so be sure to visit every day.

Are you aware that Obama has only voted "present" during his brief time in congress? He does not vote for or against. That means he has been a useless servant to his constituents, wasting taxpayer money and doing nothing for the people who elected him. What about this qualifies him to be President?

Back in Illinois he voted. There was a bill on the table to provide medical aid to babies who managed to survive abortions. Obama not only voted it down, but passionately persueded others to vote it down. For those who debate when life actually begins, there can be no doubt that babies who survive abortions and are fully born are living human beings. These innocent babies are in need of medical aid ONLY because their mothers and the doctors tried to kill them and failed. Obama said they did not deserve medical aid and made sure they were denied any level of help or care saying it would "put more of a burden on the mother"! A vote for Obama is a vote FOR every kind of abortion, even the most unthinkable.

This video confirms Obama's actions in this issue.
It does not have any "gore", but facts.

If you are going to say that abortion is ok and is not murdering a living soul, then you must be willing to learn what an abortion involves so you know what you are talking about. It would be a foolish person indeed who would adamantly support something they didn't know anything about. For those of you who are unaware of what an abortion actually entails medically, you should follow these links. They use models and are very factually and unemotionally handled. At the end of the prostaglandin link, they warn you before showing something real. I will not post the videos themselves here so you have the choice whether to learn what it's really all about. But consider this, if the truth of an abortion is so harsh that I am being considerate to not offend your senses by showing them here, then how can it be ok?

This is a "dismemberment abortion".
This is a "suction abortion".
This is a "Prostaglandin Abortion".
This is a "Dilation and Extraction Abortion".
This is "order forms research labs use to request baby body parts and eyes and brains from abortion clinics".

"Let's take a look at the practice he (Obama) wanted to continue - the Partial Birth Abortion.

The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedures:
A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps. (Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

God help him. There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.

Think about this: You can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.

*The text about the partial birth abortion was a quote from Huntley Brown's e-mail, "Why I am not voting for Obama", which can be found in it's entirety in the left column archives.

Obama has made it clear that he is not only for abortions, but fully supports the most haneous of all, the partial birth abortion. If you vote for Obama, you vote for the continued slaughter of the most innocent and helpless citizens of our country. Do not be fooled.

Now a word for the women victims of abortion.
When the Holy Spirit convicts any person of all the sin in our lives and our need for a Savior, we are suddenly deeply aware and grieved for all the sins we have committed. We respond by repenting with our whole heart (being truly sorry for and resolving not to do again), and giving our lives to Jesus Christ as our Savior and He forgives of ALL of our sins, because in His love for us, He paid for ALL our sins on the cross long ago. He has been wooing us back to Himself all our lives, in all manner of ways. He welcomes us with arms of love and healing, rejoicing His child has come to Him. He does not condem us. He does not remind us of sins that He has forgiven.

For those of us who have walked the painful and dark path we are discussing, many of us, as children of God, redeemed by His blood and living faithfully for Him, cannot forgive ourselves. Once realizing what we have done, we feel this sin is greater than others and though we may know we are "saved", we feel this sin is too horrible for us not to have to keep suffering for it. We spiritually flog ourselves, many times for decades, even though we are forgiven by God and are living faithfully for Him. We listen to the devil telling us these lies, condemning us, and live in misery, far beneath the abundant life Jesus has given us, we live tortured and tormented.

GOD LOVES YOU! He feels your pain. He taught me several years ago that it is insulting to Him when we do this. When we keep punishing ourselves after He has told us in His Word that we are forgiven and He remembers it no more, we are telling Him that He is a liar. We are telling Him that His sacrifice on the cross was not perfect and complete enough to cover this sin, so we have to keep suffering for it to pay for it ourselves. We are saying that WE are "perfecting Jesus' sacrifice on the cross for our sins by adding our own suffering, by punishing ourselves". Wow was that shock and an eye opener!

He showed me the key to healing and freedom from this torment is to simply BELIEVE HIS WORD! It's as simple as that! If we BELIEVE that He has fully forgiven us, like He has told us He has...if we BELIEVE Him when He says our sins are remembered no more, then we are free! The guilt is gone. There is full healing for this as well as all the other damage in our lives, through Jesus Christ, Almighty God and His Holy Spirit. Please be comforted. You are cherished by the One who matters most! In Him you will find the kind of love you have always longed for in a man, but never found. He is the Lover of Your Soul and He longs for you to come to Him.

One more immense comfort: According to God's Word (the Bible), all who are born in flesh are born with the sinful nature of humanity and if we live long enough, we are all going to sin and be lost eternally, but your baby never had a chance to sin. Your baby died in a saved condition before reaching the age we are held accountable for sin - they are safe in the loving arms of their Creator and our Father in Heaven! They are where we are striving to be. Though this is a terrible way for it to happen, we need never worry about their eternal destination. We need never worry if they will give their lives to Christ or reject Him. They are safe now for eternity and if we repent and give our lives to Jesus, asking Him to save us, are immersed in water baptism and live faithfully until death, we will one day meet our precious children in that place where there will be no tears, no sorrow, no sickness and no death. Your Lord does not want you to live in guilt once you have done this. Guilt is only a tool to convict us of sin so we will come to Him and be saved. After we've done this, any guilt we feel is from the devil and is contrary to the Word of God. We need to refuse it and choose to believe God's Word - all of it! God bless you.

"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain." Revelation 21:4

If I can help in any way, please e-mail me. God has been so good to me. He promises that what He does for one, He will do for another. He is no respector of men. God bless you, with all my heart!

There are few requirements to hold the office of president of the United States of America, but they are part of our very constitution. It is incumbent on each political party to be sure their candidate meets these before running. This has not happened concerning Obama.

The biased news media has swept this, as everything against Obama, under the rug. Those foolishly believing that network news is still the honorable profession it once was, fulfilling it's charge to report only facts and in an unbiased way, are being manipulated. The networks are trying to throw this election. They are trying to thwart the will of the people. They are banking on if they tell us this election is a done deal long enough, the opposition voters will lose heart and not even vote, believing it won't make a difference.

Don't buy the lies! This election is very close and EVERY VOTE COUNTS! Look for the facts yourself! It is you who will have to live with the consequences of this most dangerous election.

What you may not know is that a democratic attorney from Philadelphia filed suit against him in district court to make him prove that he does meet the constitutional requirement of citizenship. I obtained this document from Snopes.com. Click this link to read it http://www.snopes.com/politics/graphics/berg.pdf


It's easy to read, easy to follow and full of facts that prove no less than five different ways that he cannot meet the constitutional requirement to become President. It's long, but isn't your future worth knowing the truth? Isn't your children's future worth a few minutes? Your grandchildren's?? It is well documented and EASY to follow. It clearly shows that there is no possible senario that lets him meet the requirement of citizenship. It also proves the birth certificate he finally posted on his site is a forgery. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ THIS! Be informed voters and not mice following the pied piper to their doom.

This lawsuit had a 30 day deadline. The deadline has passed and Obama did not obey the courts order to respond. Legally this is an admission that the allegations are true. The lawyer who filed automatically won the case. Now he is trying to get the courts to enforce this finding to make him withdraw from the election as he does not meet the constitutional requirement of citizenship. You can download both this document and the original lawsuit HERE.

Get involved! Tell the people you know. Call republican headquarters in your area and volunteer to drive people to the polls on election day. Stand up and be heard America!

There are reports and video everywhere taken both in Kenya, where Obama was born, and here in the states, even our nation's capital, showing crowds loudly and passionately hailing him as "THE MESSIAH", and he accepts it happily as though it is correct.

  • Revelation 19:10 (speaking of an angel at the throne of God) And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, "Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God."
  • Acts 14:11-15 And when the multitudes saw what Paul had done, they raised their voice, saying in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have become like men and have come down to us."
  • 12 And they began calling Barnabas, Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker.
  • 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates, and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds.
  • 14 But when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of it, they tore their robes and rushed out into the crowd, crying out
  • 15 and saying, "Men, why are you doing these things? We are also men of the same nature as you, and preach the gospel to you in order that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that is in them."
That is the example the Bible gives us of how those truly serving God react when man tries to worship them, even an angel from God's throne! Obama says he's a Christian. He's been in what he says is a Christian church for over twenty years. Surely was long enough to learn it is evil to accept worship from man, surely worship that makes him equal with the only begotten Son of God, the only Messiah of this world, Jesus Christ. Yet he happily accepts people making him equal with the Son of God. No true Christian could do this.

The Bible says by our fruits people will know us. Look at his fruit America! He's telling us who he really is. Open your eyes before it's too late! Pray for our Heavenly Father to lift the delusion that is blinding so many American eyes and save our country from satan's plan through satan's man!

God save America!

I hope she doesn't mind, but I have received this wonderful letter from a dear sister-in-Christ and I want to share it with you as an encouragement. Thank you so much for writing this to me!!!

We are in the last days and there will be many offended by those of us who take a stand for our Lord. The word tells us that we will one day rule and reign with Christ "if" we suffer. So this is just a sign of the times. Placing our hope and trust in "MAN" is just another lie from the pits of hell. If you look back to the Isrealites it was the opinions of man that kept them from entering into the promise. They valued "Mans" report rather than the PROMISE of God that HE would give them the land. We as believers are called to Trust and Obey and hold firm our confidence to the unseen things, there is a rest that still remains for those who overcome. SO the odds are that as the days grow short, there will be more and more offended. Paul says I forget what is behind and I look forward to what is ahead of me!!!! He says that we are running a race and that race calls for endurance and perserverance. KEEP ON RUNNINIG & KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE....THAT PRIZE OF ONE DAY RULING AND REIGNING WITH JESUS IN THE HEAVENLIES......WHEN PRAISE GOD THIS WORLD WILL BE HIS FOOTSTOOL!!!!!! We have so much to look forward to.

This is an article I have copied from Pastor Ken of New Day Christian Fellowship's blog:

God's Justice Cannot Sleep Forever!

America is at a crossroad! She is determining which road politically and I believe, spiritually, she will take for the next four or eight years or maybe even more. Her political choice will greatly influence her spiritual temperature.

Will America return to the roots that made her great? Will America awake from her slumber and return to the God of her forefathers? Or will she, with a zombie-like sleep walk, follow after the pied piper of liberalism, socialism and denying the very God that established her and made her great?

There has been an intense, vicious attack for the past forty years against God, Christianity and the historical, orthodox family unit in America. America, her ideals, her heritage and the things that made her great have been challenged, impugned, mocked, attacked and there has been a tremendous effort to change to something completely different from what she was to something that will spell her destruction. It hasn’t happened yet but if America doesn’t awake very soon, the enemies of Christianity, capitalism and the American way of life will turn our nation upside down!

What is the answer to all of this? How can we stop this onslaught of destruction? If we look back on our history, we see America has had tough times, dark days and clouds of destruction hanging over our heads before but we made it through and we can make it through again.

It may be good to look back at the solution to the issues of America in the past. Please read the following words from many years ago:

"We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness."

These words came from President Abraham Lincoln in 1863.

Yes, a President of the United States said those very powerful and poignant words to our nation during a time of great trial. They could very well be spoken today by any of America’s leaders and would certainly be appropriate!

During one of America’s darkest hours, one of our greatest Presidents called upon the nation to pray to the One we had offended with our pride and arrogance, God. The time has come once again for America to bow her knees to the name of all names, Jesus Christ. It is well past time we fall on our faces and ask for forgiveness and for God to have mercy on America. It is time we call upon Him to intervene in the affairs of our nation and save us from making a very bad decision in the next election.

Noah Webster (remember Webster’s Dictionary?) over two centuries ago (that’s two hundred years) wrote these words:

“All the miseries and evils which men suffer from – vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”

As you can see the early leaders of our nation were inspired to follow God’s word and gave God the credit for America’s greatness. They also warned if we left our roots, we would suffer.

We continue with one of America’s greatest founding forefathers and presidents; President Thomas Jefferson:

“Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever!”

God’s justice cannot sleep forever! Those words should strike deep into the hearts of men and women all over our nation. God’s justice cannot sleep forever.

America, it is time to wake up and come back to the Lord. It is time for all Christians, young and old alike to begin to sound the alarm. It is time for all of Christians to call for a return to God.

As a Pastor and as a Christian, I am making a National Call for our nation to turn back to God. I call all leaders on all levels of our government to bow their knees and ask for God’s guidance in all decisions they are about to make for our nation.

America! Turn back to God! Before it is too late!

It is time we restore righteousness back in our government and in our country.
Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a shame and a reproach!

If now is not the time….please tell me…when?

For change to be a good thing, it has to be change for the better. Our economy has had a lot of change lately...and it's decidedly for the worse. All change has consequences. Change just for the sake of change is ignorant. Let's be sure when we make a change it's for the better!

As citizens, we garner many benefits, but there are responsibilities that go with it. One responsibility is to research candidates for public office and not only vote, but make an informed decision. Let's not be lazy Americans and let's be sure we know the truth about both candidates and make a wise decision. We and our children after us will have to live with the consequences of our choice. If you are getting all your information from our network news, you are being deceived. Journalism no longer reports facts in an unbiased way, which is what they are supposed to do. In my lifetime it has changed from true journalism to the news media deciding to wield their power to manipulate the public and make the government they want, not what the majority want. They are trying to steal this election from us by slanted and untrue reporting and leaving a lot out entirely. You must dig deeper for the truth. Listen to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and you will get the truth.

What I want to share today is the result of a horrifying incident a couple of days ago. I have been frightened and sickened by finding so very many people who proudly declare they have chosen their candidate solely on the basis of race. That is the very definition of racism. Race is not a qualification for the highest office in our nation, nor is simply running for that office a qualification for it.

First, for all the people who somehow haven't met a dictionary and don't know what words actually mean, the word "racism" is defined as "making decisions on the basis of race". Clearly that means white or black, anyone who does this is racist, not only one race and it is always wrong.

And this leads to the even more horrifying information I just was told. Ready for the real shocker? We were told that "socialism" means "being friendlier, bringing people together and being a friendlier country!" ?????? This from a person with a masters degree and more!

Back to that largely unused book, the dictionary. Socialism is a system of government, just like capitalism and communism are systems of government. Socialism is all about redistribution of wealth. Take from those who have and give to those with less, even if they don't work. Obama has said if you and your spouse work hard and earn $250,000 a year, he's going to take a lot of it away and give to those who won't work. Just google Joe The Plumber and see for yourself! Socialism has been tried along with communism in many countries and it has never worked. It has created slave states where everyone is poor and no one strives for excellence because there is no possible reward for them personally to do so. Mediocrity and poverty, hopelessness and a horrible life without God have resulted every time it's been tried. Loss of freedom. Government telling you what you can and can't do.

Check out Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, and Joseph Lenin, and see if you really want that in America. Do you want to stay free? Do you want freedom of worship? Do you want the ability to hope your children have a better life than you? Then the fact that Obama has declared socialistic policies from day one and has been endorsed by the Communist party of America who said, "At last we have one of our own!" should be enough to be sure we turn out in mass to vote this evil far from our country.

God save America!

This is an e-mail from Huntley Brown - a fabulous concert pianist, a man of God and a black man. I appreciate so much his reasoning for not voting for Obama that I really hope you read it. I have pasted it here:

Why I Can't Vote For Obama
By Huntley Brown

Dear Friends, A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an email with a few points. With the election just around the corner I decided to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this before but it's worth repeating...

First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be voting for him.

Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means He leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms He does because He is the leader.

I can't vote black because I am black; I have to vote Christian because that's who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won't be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.

In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few, wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.

We need to follow Martin Luther King's words, don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I don't know Obama so all I can go off is his voting record. His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.

NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)

To beat Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with.

There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating. There is a reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth abortion. There is a reason he voted No on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.

Let's take a look at the practice he wanted to continue

The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedures:

A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps. (Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

God help him. There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.

Think about this: You can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.

There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.

Obama tells us he has good judgment but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wright's sermons. I wonder why now?

Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19 - 20 'Go and make disciples of all nations.' This means reproduce yourself. Teach people to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe what you believe etc. The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?

Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenets that said they have a ...

1. Commitment to the White Community
2. Commitment to the White Family
3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community.
5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.

Would you support a President who went to a church like that?

Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenets of Obama's former church. If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been marching outside.

This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years and just discovered he went to a racist church. The church can't be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race. He came for the whole world.

A church can't have a value system based on race. The churches value system has to be based on biblical mandate. It does not matter if itÊπs a white church or a black church it's still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.

Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation. Cone once wrote: 'Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.

Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?

So what does all this mean for the nation?

In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead a nation it meant one thing - judgment.

Read 1 Samuel 8 when Israel asked for a king. First God says in 1 Samuel 1:9 'Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.'

Then God says

1 Samuel 1:18 ' When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.' 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. 'No!' they said. 'We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.' 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, 'Listen to them and give them a king.'

Here is what we know for sure.

God is not schizophrenic

He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain. As the scripture says, a city divided against itself cannot stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God.

Maybe I am the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.

For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the face and say; Father based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion.. He might have to nominate three or four Supreme Court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are against you. I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this. I know I can look the other way because of the economy.

I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions. Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.

Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation,

1. Whose value system should be placed on the nation.

2. Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

Blessings, Huntley Brown

Today is so clear and beautiful! I do hope it is by you too! I would love to see what you are using my goodies for - if you send them to me I'll put them here.

I was just doing the dishes for the millionth time it seems. I have done them by hand my entire life with only about 5 years, long ago, when I had a dishwasher. The truth is that I don't mind them at all. It makes me smile remembering why. When I was a young mother I found a plaque that was a prayer THANKING God for dirty dishes! It truly had a huge impact on my way of thinking.

The prayer thanked God for dirty dishes because it meant there was food to feed my loved ones!

There was more to it, but that's the truly important part. I hope the next time your dishes are piling up and you must wash them, that you remember that simple truth. There are so very many people who don't have food to give their loved ones, both here in our beloved United States as well as around the world. It is a great blessing to have dirty dishes and an honor as women to be the ones to prepare and serve it. As wives and mothers, we should smile softly to ourselves and feel a warm glow deep within as we wash those dishes, thanking God, our Provider, with heartfelt thanks that He has again met our needs.

Now for your freebie from the Pumpkin Patch - Gourds collection. If you have missed any pieces to this kit so far, all the links are in the archives in the left column. I'll leave the links active for you for a while to be sure you can get them all.

As this most dangerous of all presidential elections draws ever nearer, more and more information is coming out about how many of the people Obama has hand chosen to be his advisors are openly Muslim and have close questionable ties to jihadist groups. If you recall, "jihad" is the Muslim declaration of war against America, all Christians and all Jews. Click the link to read an article.

In an America sick with misunderstanding about the term "tolerance", we have progressively embraced and elevated Muslims in our country to great heights ever since they attacked us on 9-11...this religion that preaches killing anyone who will not agree with them and submit to them. Islam is the absolute antithesis of "tolerance". Yet look at Obama and the support he's getting for his campaign despite his history, his published plan in his own book to side with Muslims over Christians, and his surrounding himself with Muslims in his campaign planning.

Has America no memory at all? These are the very people who killed so many innocent Americans on 9-11 and have continually been killing us overseas and plotting to kill on our soil, though thanks to the grace of God, we have been able to stop it here. They have declared war on us and continually act on it. A huge portion of the taxes we pay are going to trying to protect us from them and to fight the war against them. Are we really considering electing a man to our highest office who will not pledge allegience to our country and has told us he's on the Muslim's side?

See the picture below? This is part of a YouTube video of Islamic Day in New York City...the very city of their first attack on American innocents on our soil. They attacked us years before 9-11 trying to take the tower down and failed. So they attacked it TWICE! They were allowed to stop traffic on one of the busiest streets to pray to their false god.

See the flag? Does it look familiar? They took our American flag and removed our stars, which represent each separate state in the untion, replacing it with their Islamic symbols. How stupid are we???? They have made their plans for America clear for many years. They plan to take us by any means, and FORCE us to become Muslim. They've said so all along and continually act on it.

There are videos and articles all over where you can see them cheering saying, "God made Obama, we make him president!" What part of the fact that Muslims across the world are salavating to have him elected do we not get as a giant red flag as to his plans for America? Why would we vote ANYONE into ANY office who our declared enemies WANT in office???? THINK AMERICA! Click the image to see the video. There are countless videos and articles about this. Just look before it's too late!

Keep up the 8pm central time prayer vigil to the one and ONLY true living Almighty God - our hope is in Him alone.

Most people think that Christians were persecuted and slaughtered only in the first century in Rome. I highly recommend picking up a copy of "Jesus Freaks" at any Christian book store and reading. It is powerful, humbling and a real faithbuilder. More people are martyred for the name of Christ every year than in all of the first century persecution together. Another great resource for the truth is Voice of the Martyrs who even have a map of all the parts of the world where Christians are imprisoned, tortured or killed TODAY to aid us in our prays.

We have supported a mission work very dear to our hearts for many years now in Rameswaram, India called Body of Christ Ministries. Their work is remarkable and has been accompanied by every miracle you read about in the New Testament - yes I said EVERY! These are the most humble servants you will ever meet. They are the real deal. No robes to bring attention and glory to themselves. No introducing themselves as "Prophet" or "Apostle" so'n'so. They just serve, at any cost, tirelessly, in all conditions, faithfully, for over thirty years now and God has brought great fruit. I hope you will take a moment and visit them. I pray that if the Lord touches your heart to support this amazing work He is doing in this Hindu nation, that you will support them financially as well as in prayer. It is greatly needed. They operate under the oversight of a group in Oregon, so you can be confident of how your money is used and your gifts are normal postage and all tax deductable.

Having said that, today we have received an update from our brethren in this work and I want to share with you. I'm paraphrasing: In the area of Orissa state, Hindu fanatics have been greatly persecuting Christians for many weeks and the Indian government is not taking serious action to stop it. They have been visiting Christians in Berempur Hospital and these are some of their stories.

Manini Digal is 14 yrs. old in the 9th grade is from Burakama village in Kandamaia district. Hindu fanatics attacked her house and beat all of her family members, raped her and poured gas on her to kill her. Her whole body was burnt, but somehow God has saved her life. When asked about her faith in Jesus, she said that she is closer to God now than before. She is not questioning God why all these things have happened to her. She loves Jesus and wants to follow Him until the end of her life.

We question God if we face any small difficulties. We could learn a lot from Manini.
Kameswar Digal is the village head (sarpanch) in Gunjiwadi village in Kandamala district and also a committed Christian leader in this village. Hindu fanatics attacked his village and started burning houses and killing Christians. He tried to stop the group. They cut his leg off and continued to burn houses. He is in the hospital in Berempur. He wants to go back to his village very soon and see his people and how they are doing. He is not worried about himself or his leg, but is more worried about the people in his village.

Brother Paulose who wrote all this added, "I feel ashamed to call myself a Christian leader. We Christian leaders have to learn a lot from this man about what it means to be a leader and what kind of sacrifice we need to make if we want to lead (serve) people."
Mrs. Lal Nayak is from Khandamala district. This family was attacked by Hindu fanatics and they have injured these people very badly with rods and swords. Mr. Lal died in the hospital. His wife is still in a coma and doesn't know that her husband has died.
Her husband's burial.
There are hundreds and thousands of stories to tell about these innocent people. They have even injured the children very badly. Here are more photos of victims in the hospital at Berempur district, Orissa state.



Brother Paulose closed saying: "Persecution is still going on in this state. Secular media and journalists are silent all these weeks. They have started publishing about these issues and started condemning publicly this week. Please pray for God's intervention." I join with him and ask you to intercede to our Heavenly Father on behalf of these helpless brethren being marytred for Christ, and also that He mature each of us spiritually here that our walks with Him would deepen so that we would have relationships with Him like these people do.

Yesterday we touched on how much God loves those who once were His, but have walked away. I want to share a very cool illustration of this in action that I was honored to witness last Sunday.

After worship, I was downtown and when my husband came to pick me up, I asked him to walk in this lovely park we have right next to where he was picking me up. This is the very first time we've ever done this. I heard really cool music and we started hiking to find out if it was live or canned (they do pipe music through rock speakers in part of the park). We found an opening with a big circle of conga drums and men and women playing passionately. There were also lots of really neat and unusual percussion instruments being played. Everyone was happy and they played without breaks for ages. Their arms must have hurt so badly!

I was so happy and blessed to be there and of course, was silently praying for everyone there and worshipping God for this blessing. After a while, a couple we know from a church we used to attend showed up and we had a happy reunion. He started sharing with my husband about a pastor who he had seen at another drumming session here in the past and how he had delivered a word of admonition to this man. Rather than receive the word, this man had gone to our friend's pastor and tried to get him in trouble. The drumming pastor had left his church and was apparently not worshiping God in any fellowship any more.

My attention was on a homeless looking man who had stopped drumming and had gotten an adorable puppy from somewhere and was walking him. I left the others without being noticed and went to ask this man if I could pet his puppy, as the painful wound of loosing my beloved has not healed and I so longed to touch one.

He had a drink in his had and had been smoking. He appeared dirty and ragged and quite beaten by life. We talked about the puppy and I silently prayed for this dear soul in my heart. When he said he had rescued this puppy, I said, "God bless you". He quickly said he could use all the blessings he could get. This opened the conversation up and I was given opportunity to gently speak some bold truth to him in the love of Christ. He received it very well and it was a wonderful talk. I liked him.

He said he had been employed by a church, but not any more. I said that that was unimportant in terms of salvation, that it is only our personal relationship with God that matters. I asked him about the state of his walk with God, reminding him that none of us is promised tomorrow. We must be sure we are right with God at all times, not knowing when we will be taken from this world and face judgment. He said it was the best it had ever been, but asked prayers for himself and his girlfriend who he shard has mental problems. I was so blessed! I asked if he would like prayer now? I pointed out our friends and my husband and said we could all pray for him now. He suddenly had to return to drumming right away, but was very pleasant and still wanted me to pray for them, just not right then. We parted amicably.

Upon returning to the group, I excitedly said I'd met a man who asked for us to pray for him and his girlfriend, but didn't want us to do it there. As talk continued, I used his name. To my shock, he was the very pastor our friend had been talking about!!!! He hadn't even said the man was present. And this was the only individual I approached that evening! No wonder he didn't want prayer from the group and left quickly when I pointed them out.

Do you see? God so loves this wayward child of His, drinking, smoking, living in sin with a woman he's not married to, away from the fellowship of believers entirely, that he arranged this meeting so He could send one of His children to invite him back again, to tell him He still loves him!!! I am blown away. I LOVE it when God uses me! I never cease to be astounded at Him. This is what makes life worth living! Look at the lengths God went to to touch that man that night!!!! He really loves him!

"What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture, and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents, than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance." Luke 15:4-7

Just like yesterday's scripture said, we are to love others as Christ loves us. John 13:34,35 Let's keep our eyes open for these treasured golden opportunities to be used by our Savior and God!!! Be sensitive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and obey it. After all, this is what we are in this world for, to love and praise Him and to be His hands and feet to reach those in need of Him. Praise God!

Please pray for this man and his girlfriend. You don't need names, God will know who you mean!

"Love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34,35

That is a big bill to fill! We are to love others as Jesus loves us.

  • He left His home in glory to come serve and save us.
  • He lived a life here without the comforts you and I have.
  • He taught patiently and tirelessly in love to guide us back to the Father and an abundant life.
  • He endured slander, persecution and humiliation for our sakes.
  • He gave his life for us to redeem us from the just punishment of eternity in hell.
Do we live this love for others? Is this how we live with our brethren in the body of Christ? Or do we quickly take offense when we aren't given the position of honor we want in the church? Are we too good to be the one who cleans the bathrooms and takes the trash out? Does our flesh demand the "titled" positions in leadership even though our dear Lord clearly taught us that those who would be greatest among us must be servant of all, just as the example He Himself set for us? Mark 9:35 Are we offended just because we want something our way and it isn't done? Many even leave a fellowship, harboring bitterness and unforgiveness over such shallow things as these.

Do we become offended if we aren't given public recognition and thanks for whatever we do for the fellowship? Did we do it for earthly praise? Jesus taught us that when we do things to be noticed and honored by man, we loose our heavenly reward. He told us to do our good in secret that our Father who sees in secret will reward us openly. That would be a sorry choice to choose public recognition by your church over a reward imperishable from our Lord. Matthew 6: 1-6

How do we react when a brother or sister falls? Did our dear Savior not clearly tell us that ALL sin and fall short of the glory of God and that if we say we do not sin, we make God a liar and the truth is not in us? Romans 3:23 Though He tells us that we are not to accept or tolerate the sin, we embrace the sinner and love them with the love of God that they may turn, repent and be restored to grace. We are to always treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves. Matthew 7:12 To our shame, the church is the only army in this world who shoots it's wounded.

How do we view a new person that is deeply entwined in this world and who heeds the drawing of the Holy Spirit and visits our fellowship? This should be a time of rejoicing! We are being given an opportunity to do the service He has commanded us to do! A soul could be saved and pass from death into life! Remember that there is more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who is saved than over 99 righteous men. Luke 15:7

Do we so quickly forget that with God, ANY sin is enough to separate us from God and send us to hell? We are no different than these people in God's eyes. Remember that God hates hypocrites. We share our testimony proudly of where were were when Jesus washed us from our sins and set us in the high places. We forget that this was all by grace and nothing we ourselves accomplished for us to be prideful of. We wrongly judge others. It is not our place. We are to share the love of God with them and in love, bring their wounded souls to our Lord.

It's like the song from Casting Crowns says, "Just love them like Jesus, carry them to Him, His yoke is easy, His burden is light. We don't need the answers to all of life's questions, just know that He loves them, stay by their side, and love them like Jesus."

I'm going to share a few more thoughts on yesterday's scripture passage.

If I were to make a list of the worst, most evil things that a person can do in this world, it would include murder, child abuse, torture and such.

But it is interesting that when the Almighty choose to make a list of seven specific sins, it is a much different list. Many of the things He listed are not things that we in America even consider wrong at all, surely not "an abomination to God". Yet this is what He wanted us to know:

  • "There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him;
  • Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
  • a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil,
  • A false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers." Proverbs 6:16-19
Wow, "hates & abomination" are very powerful adjectives! What did He deem important enough to list second? A lying tongue. In America today, lying is no longer considered even wrong in much of society. Talk to teens. Watch TV. If you don't lie there is something wrong with you.

We have entire professions that gain fortune and fame directly from lying...the advertising industry, politicians, lawyers, the people re-writing our American history school books to cut out the facts that America was founded for the right to worship the One True Living God, Jehovah, not for "religious freedom" to worship all false gods; that all the founding documents for the structure of our country and what it stood for were entirely Christian based. Lying is no longer shameful in our dear country. And if you are caught lying, what are you counseled to do? Keep lying and admit nothing. But look what Almighty God says about it:
  • "You shall not bear false witness". Matthew 19:18
  • These passages are discussing heaven:
  • "Nothing unclean and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life." Revelation 21:27
  • "Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying." Revelation 22:15
Again I remind you that since God made everything that is and holds ALL power, He has the right to make all the rules. As His creation, we are fools to think that because time has passed since the Bible was put in print that we have the right to change the rules He gave us. Fools because we may live our lives according to the changes we ourselves have made to His rules, but that in no way will change His judgment in the end. We can't even make ourselves a bit taller or add an hour to our lives, and we think because we are "modern man" that we have the power and authority to change His laws? He gave us His eternal world of truth and told us clearly:

"Heaven and earth will pass away, but My worlds shall not pass away." Matthew 24:35

This is not to say that murder and other things aren't wicked and powerfully condemned by God and will have eternal consequences if not repented for from a contrite heart and then one asks Jesus to be their Savior.

The Word of God tells us that any sin separates us from God and this is why we need a Savior - someone to pay the price to redeem us from the penalty of our sins so we can return to God and spend eternity in heaven with Him, instead of an eternity of punishment in hell. Praise God that Jesus Christ was willing and able to do this for us! Let us be sure that we have fully repented for all the sin in our lives and asked Jesus to be our Savior before we close our eyes tonight. No one is promised tomorrow. He also commands us to be immersed in water baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. That is no more "optional" for us to obey than the repenting and taking Jesus as our Savior. It is a commandment, so don't put it off. Obey in this with the same urgency that you asked Jesus to save you.

It is my fervent prayer that every person visiting this blog will be saved. I pray for each of you often and ask that our loving Heavenly Father wraps you in His love and that you choose to live in His amazing love forever. I am so looking forward to meeting you in heaven one day! You are so precious to Him! He longs for you and is calling to you to come to Him with all your hearts. If I can help you in any way, please post or e-mail me!

There's a lot more to this passage, so I'm going to share a few more thoughts on the scripture passage from day before yesterday.

If I were to make a list of the worst, most evil things that a person can do in this world, it would include murder, child abuse, torture and such.

But it is interesting that when the Almighty choose to make a list of seven specific sins, it is a much different list. Many of the things He listed are not things that we in America even consider wrong at all, surely not "an abomination to God". Yet this is what He wanted us to know:

  • "There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him;
  • Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
  • a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil,
  • A false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers." Proverbs 6:16-19
Wow, "hates & abomination" are very powerful adjectives! What did He deem important enough to list third? Hands that shed innocent blood. How would we define innocent? The dictionary says, "those without guilt". Clearly that would mean all killings that weren't a legal punishment for a crime that person actually committed.

Who has the undeniably most innocent blood possible? Those who have not had any opportunity to commit even one sin. The most helpless among us and the most innocent. To our shame, our great country has slaughtered over 46 million innocent souls since 1972, with the blessing of our government. That's an entire generation of Americans. One earthly consequence of this is evident in our Social Security system. We killed those who would be working and paying taxes into Social Security. Now it's well known that there won't be any Social Security for our children - they will have paid into it, but it will be gone before they ever get to collect any themselves.

Given what God said about how He feels about the shedding of innocent blood, given also that this has been done with full support and even funding from our government, what do you think God thinks about America on this issue? He promised His blessings and protection with a condition - that we follow His law, love and obey Him. When we as a country have kicked Him out of all the areas we already have, He is no longer obligated to bless or protect us at all, yet in His infinite mercy He has continued till now. This sin can be forgiven and it's scars in our lives healed, just like any other sin. He longs to free us from this pain.

Again I remind you that since God made everything that is and holds ALL power, He has the right to make all the rules. As His creation, we are fools to think that because time has passed since the Bible was put in print that we have the right to change the rules He gave us. Fools because we may live our lives according to the changes we ourselves have made to His rules, but that in no way will change His judgment in the end. We can't even make ourselves a bit taller or add an hour to our lives, and we think because we are "modern man" that we have the power and authority to change His laws?
