"Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in." ~ Isaiah 58:12
In light of the growing threat to the free expression Biblical truth, let us remember those whom God has used in the past, and draw the strength of faith from their stands. The faith of one, Abraham, was used to save many lives when he attacked the kings who had carried off his nephew Lot and his family. Though Abraham had only 318 men in his “household army”, God defeated the combined armies of four kings and rescued the captives they had taken, including Lot. And because of Abraham’s obedience in the face of fear, God greatly blessed him during and after the battle (Genesis 14)!
Gideon, with just 300 men, overcame an army that was “without number” (Judges 6:5): Demonstrating how powerfully God shows up on behalf of those who trust Him!

In the wake of the Supreme Court saying that it is now “law” that marriage is not between a man and a woman only, what can we do?
One thing we can do is realize that the Supreme Court cannot make law!! The Constitution, the law that we agreed to live by in 1789, reserves the right to make national law to the Congress, and the right to make state law to the state Legislatures. Nowhere does it allow the Supreme Court to make law. Thus, just because the Court tells us whether something is Constitutional does not mean we have to live by their decision. Their ruling is not law! It is only an opinion! We must respectfully disobey their ruling on marriage!
Secondly, the Congress should rise up and impeach those five judges who have so blatantly violated the Constitution which they took an oath to defend. Congress is given this power by the Constitution Continue reading →
On November 13, 2008, the week after Mr. Obama was elected the first time, the Think About It message was entitled “What We Can Expect”. We offered the following analysis of what government would become. We stated,
“In the governmental realm we can expect more and more animosity toward the churches which teach the Bible to be true. This will probably also include Jewish synagogues. It follows that moral issues like trying to stop abortion and homosexuality will be impossible, unless God Himself intervenes.”
Now that we are seeing this, what do we do?
We must now be willing to suffer for speaking the truth to people. This is a first for our nation. What rejection we received in the past Continue reading →
