The most important thing is to preach Jesus, and the second most important thing is to preserve the most important thing.
That is why I get involved in politics. The Church has been silent too long in allowing the degradation of society. Pastor if you’re not preaching about a Biblical Worldview or preaching on Biblical values you are missing a chance to change society. Do you preach on Pro Life Sunday? Did you know there was a pro life Sunday? What about voter registration Sunday? Did you know there is a big push to legalize drugs? How about speaking out to stop sex trafficking or gender confusion? Yeah I know stop being negative. It’s not negative, when we as the collective church have not been proactive in social issues.
We have been really good at getting people “saved”, but what about discipleship. If we are to be world changers, then what about impacting our world with Biblical morality?
39% of Evangelical Pastors Reject absolute moral truth
69% Agree life is sacred
37% say having a faith is more important than what your faith is
51% of adult Christians claim a Biblical Worldview
It’s time we as the Ekklesia of God should be the leading force to transform this wicked world. Be a world changer. Live on the edge of societal revolution, because we know Truth by name, His name is Jesus!
America is in desperate straits. I have stated many times that we have fallen so far we could never recover in our own strength and with our human efforts. Only a true revival and reformation will save us. America the Beautiful still describes us on the outside. Internally, however, we are ravaged by spiritual death, societal disease, and moral decay. Like Canaan in ancient times, we have become a stronghold of giants. Dutch Sheets – Give Him 15
Abolish the IRS – that’s what some House Republicans are calling for. In House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) efforts to secure the needed support from his party to be their leader, he reportedly promised members of the House Freedom Caucus a vote on a bill that would replace the current federal tax system – including the income tax – with a national consumption tax, which could lead to the end of the Internal Revenue Service.
While Democrats and President Joe Biden are working to boost the IRS by hiring 87,000 employees over the next 10 years, Republicans have introduced a bill that could do away with the agency entirely. The measure is called the Fair Tax Act.
“Very few people like paying taxes but if they’re going to pay taxes they would much rather pay a consumption tax as opposed to a property tax or an income tax or a payroll tax,” said U.S. Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA), who introduced the bill.
Commentary writer Matthew Henry said “a traitor inside the church is worse than a thousand outside the church.” Many times those of us who strictly contend for the faith are looked upon as hard liners or too conservative, but in society today fundamental truth needs to be shouted from the rooftops. When so called Pastors deny any part of the Bible as the word of God, or try to minimize or throw away what God has said, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Shepards are called to lead and feed the flock of God. Today not so much. (Isaiah 56:10-12) Pastors need to speak out on issues from their pulpit! Don’t be a sissy. Don’t be afraid because now is the time for men of God to be leaders not follows. We should change the atmosphere wherever we go. Find a man like that to support. Brave and strong in the Lord. By the way, get involved in what is happening today politically as well. Get out of the Church and do something. Preach issues from your pulpit. Tell your parishioners God will judge your vote. Vote Biblical values!
Most of our moral issues plaguing us today stem from nonsensical interpretation of the scriptures. Pastors, of which I am one, drive me crazy with the their fear of losing members. Preach the word, be a good Bible teacher. Don’t compromise. An old Preacher told me this over 40 years ago, “Son the people who are with you can’t leave you, and the people who aren’t with you can’t stay.” What he meant was those who want the truth will be drawn to you and those who want their ears tickled will leave. Great advice for any endeavor, just be yourself and say what is right and true and be passionate.
If you have as good Pastor, encourage him constantly. He needs it. If you go to a dead and dry church, get out of it. Christian’s don’t need junk food, they need to be fed from the Word. Rh
A phrase that I and many others have voiced on many occasions, “we are in a battle for the soul of America.” Truer words were never spoken. I write this short blog to lay out my feelings and more importantly my deeply held convictions.
First, I am an ordained Pastor who believes that righteousness exalts a nation, but evil rulers are an abomination to a people. At the present time we are ruled in both parties, but more so in the democratic socialist by demagogues. Ruling class pols that have no desire for the good of our nation.
Our battle is one of a spiritual fight, (Ephesians 6:10-18) and needs to be conquered as such! Years ago our Congress would debate and fight over spending and programs to help the poor or how to increase economic development and military spending. Not anymore.
Every issue that comes to the forefront today is a social construct. Each and everyone is a fist into the air against traditional values or Biblical values that America was founded on and churches and moral people accepted. The only way to defeat this enemy, and it is an enemy of the people, is to go full fledged into spiritual warfare. It’s not flesh and blood, but spiritual forces we are up against. Prayer is our weapon, but not the only weapon. We must use the shoes (Ephesians 6:15 to get out and do the work of an evangelist to save our country. God wants us to partner with him.
The battle is the Lord’s, but we are the foot soldiers. Hooray!
Isaiah 6:5…Woe is me for I am undone…for my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of Host. When we get an exalted view of God it brings a clear view of sin and a realistic view of self. Now that is scary. That may be why so many of us keep a somewhat safe distance from the presence of God. Close but not too close. We must remember that the Lord still sees us and knows us in intimate detail, even if we don’t acknowledge Him. Even the New Testament tells us to “work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.” That doesn’t mean we compromise and cut a deal with the Lord, no His word is true and never changes, but it does mean we need to constantly put our life under a Holy Spirit magnifying glass. Maybe it’s time we stop being average, but strive for spiritual excellence. The old adage is simple but true, God puts His super on our average. All God wants is a willing and humble heart and the Holy Spirit will do the rest. Let this be the year of consecration to Almighty God. Oh that I might see the Lord, high and lifted up. Rh
I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, most of which we break long before Valentine’s Day. But I am big on the Biblical concept of putting things behind us and looking forward. The Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that “old things are passed away, behold all things are new.” The only time I look back on ‘22 is to rejoice in the victories God has wrought. Flipping a school board to conservative majority, and building my organization to where Christian Conservatives is now a part of the vernacular of our community. The new year is a clean slate of abundant possibilities. A clean slate to make it what we will. For me I want to drive a state into the ground and say I will not go back to any former issues, sin, or attitudes. I am here and I am only going forward, getting better and realizing the abundance that God has for me. New year means new challenges and new demons to conquer. Issues are before me and I am asking for direction on what and how to tackle them. I am asking for three things, 1- Revelation to grasp the hidden, 2 – Vision to know my focus, and 3 – Wisdom to apply knowledge to the problem. Let’s do this, 2023 you better know my name cause I’m going to conquer you!! Rh
2022 has been a horrific year. More stolen elections and more illegals gaining entry to our wonderful land. I am still amazed that this is the America of today. As I look back to where we were as a country 45 years ago I am shaken that our lack of freedoms and governmental heavy handedness is accepted by so many. We as Americans were free and happy going about our business in everyday life oblivious to what was probably going on behind the scenes. .
Look back on various events and see through the eyes of what we know today. The assassination of President Kennedy, (yes I remember where I was on that fateful day) which ripped our tranquil nation with fears not realized before. Soon after the escalation of the Vietnam War, one we never intended to win. Robert Kennedy shot in LA. Hippie culture that promised free love and drugs to escape the new reality. Riots in Detroit and LA and the hatred of one tribe against another. But, on the west coast we soon saw a Jesus People movement that ushered thousands into the Kingdom of God. Movements that started them are still around making disciples for Jesus.
Fast forward to today, we are experiencing hellish times now as I said in my opening paragraph. God is merciful, as He did something new then after such chaos and turmoil. He can do it again. Revival to awaken the Church, and a Move of God to transform us into His Image. However the spiritual evil we have today after turning our back on God in this nation will take effort and the empowering of the Holy Spirit. We are in a spiritual battle of demonic activity that has changed our culture. The fight is on for the very soul of America. It will be hard and long, but we must fight for our nation, a nation dedicated to God on the shores of what later became Jamestown Va.
We should ask ourselves two questions, Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footman, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you. Then how will you do in the floodplain (thicket)of the Jordan?
Stanford University has lost its mind with initiative to eliminate ‘harmful language’ such as ‘brave’ and ‘American’ by Sara Carter staff
The following paragraph will show us how far out into outer space these radical left wingers in academia have travelled. We must take back our language and our country! Higher education is used to transform us into a bunch of pathetic children, scared of life in general. This should be laughed out of America. Rh
Among the words the university urges people to avoid in the imprecise language section is the term, “American.” People are instead asked to use “U.S. Citizen” because “American” typically refers to “people from the United States only, thereby insinuating that the US is the most important country in the Americas.” The Americas, the index notes, comprises 42 countries.
According to the released guide, the goal is to eliminate “many forms of harmful language,” including “racist, violent, and biased (e.g., disability bias, ethnic bias, ethnic slurs, gender bias, implicit bias, sexual bias) language” in Stanford websites and code.
In the most obviously hypocritical terms, Stanford stated that it strives to educate people on the impact of words. How is the organization too daft to understand that one cannot be educated about anything that has been taken away and pretended does not exist. If the holocaust is not taught in schools, current and future generations will never learn its “impact.”
Nonetheless, Stanford is pretending the “impact” of words that it wills out of existence, can be taught. Pathetic.
The index highlights 10 “harmful language” sections: ableist, ageism, colonialism, culturally appropriative, gender-based, imprecise language, institutionalized racism, person-first, violent and additional considerations.
Other terms deemed harmful include “abort,” which offers the replacement of “cancel” or “end,” because of moral concerns about abortion; “child prostitute” is replaced with a “child who has been trafficked,” so the person is not defined by just one characteristic; and “Karen” is replaced with “demanding or entitled White woman.”
An ‘ableist’ section exists, in which the index urges people to use “accessible parking” instead of “handicap parking,” “died by suicide” instead of “committed suicide” and “anonymous review” instead of “blind review.” It also says people should use “unenlightened” as a replacement for “tone deaf,” and a “person with a substance abuse disorder” as a replacement for “addict.”
In the gender-based section, the index says “pronouns” should be used instead of “‘preferred’ pronouns” because “preferred” suggests “non-binary gender identity is a choice and a preference.” The section further advises against words like “freshman,” “fireman” and “congresswoman” because the “gender binary language” does not include everyone.
The institutionalized racism section says to avoid using words like “black hat,” “black mark” and “black sheep” because of “negative connotations to the color black.” It also says to avoid using “grandfathered” and use “legacy status” instead, because of “roots in the ‘grandfather clause’ adopted by Southern states to deny voting rights to Blacks.”
The index completely cautions against using the word “brave” at all. No alternative is given. The same section also asks that a person’s name is used instead of “chief” or “Pocahontas.”
