I am the American Flag by Dr Robert H Schuller

Here is a sermon by the late Dr. Schuller on our flag. Watch the sermon here

A Declaration For All Generations

Independence Day has many traditions associated with it. Many Americans will celebrate it with fireworks. Some will celebrate with picnics and parades. All these are great things, but I would like to see a new tradition on Independence Day. Every American should set time aside on this important day to read the document that we celebrate: the Declaration of Independence. This important document did not simply declare our separation from Great Britain. The Declaration laid forth the exceptional foundation on which our nation was built.( Read the rest of this commentary or listen to the audio of it by clicking here. )

Happy Birthday, America!

Supreme Court is blessing sin and rejecting the US Constitution

Listen to the commentary here or read it below.

My understanding and my worldview tells me people can be wrong including people in high places. No matter if the person is a President, a spiritual leader, or even a judge including a judge on the Supreme Court of the United States. They can be wrong. What about you.

    Last week the highest court in America made same sex marriage legal. By making that ruling the court is saying she knows better than the majority of American voters, knows better than the framers  of the Constitution.And yes she even knows better than God. 

    The job of the high court is to follow the rule of law not make law. The court made a law by saying that same sex marriage should be legal. Even if you support same sex marriage you can admit it  is not the job of the court to legislate from the bench.

   You may think this ruling will have no impact on you. I believe they are coming for churches and spiritual leaders next. In fact that is already happening. I read the other day  two pastors in Idaho are being told they have to perform a same sex wedding or they could face jail time and have to pay  a $1000.00 fine.

   This ruling just might give churches and spiritual leaders a chance to teach the Bible. However first we must decide like Peter we are going to obey God instead of man. By making that choice we need to accept we may face attacks from others including from the courts and the governments.

  

What do you think.

Starbucks CEO to Shareholder: If You Support Biblical Marriage, Sell Your Shares

Seattle, Washington — At the annual Starbucks shareholder’s meeting this past Wednesday in Seattle, company officials told those who support Biblical marriage that they “can sell [their] shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company.”

Home where Nebraska cold blooded killing took place used for good 

We are sitting in the dining room when Dan Walter first asks me where it happened.

Was it down here, in the living room, after Jane McManus fell asleep on her couch that night 38 years ago and Willie Otey broke in? Or did she die upstairs, in one of the bedrooms in this pretty white house at the corner of 67th and Pacific?

Before I can answer, Dan stops me. Since he bought the house, Dan has learned everything that happened at 6702 Pacific St. on June 11, 1977. He has learned about the rape and murder here that shook Omaha, led to a national manhunt and ended, nearly two decades later, with Otey dead in the electric chair.

Questions for Christians Who Made Their Profile Pictures Into a Rainbow

It would seem that many self-professing Christians and Bible-believers even joined in, whether to truly express their support for gay rights or just to jump on the bandwagon.

Some may have even done it to disguise themselves from the arrogant “Gaystapo,” which continues to seek out and socially destroy those with devout religious beliefs who they claim are hateful bigots.

The following series of questions, brought to us by The Gospel Coalition, are not meant to be mean-spirited or snarky, but are meant to provoke thought and introspection on the part of Bible-believing followers of Christ on all sides of the same-sex marriage issue.

long have you believed that gay marriage is something to be celebrated?

2. What Bible verses led you to change your mind?

3. How would you make a positive case from Scripture that sexual activity between two persons of the same sex is a blessing to be celebrated?

4. What verses would you use to show that a marriage between two persons of the same sex can adequately depict Christ and the church?

5. Do you think Jesus would have been okay with homosexual behavior between consenting adults in a committed relationship?

6. If so, why did he reassert the Genesis definition of marriage as being one man and one woman?

7. When Jesus spoke against porneia, what sins do you think he was forbidding?

8. If some homosexual behavior is acceptable, how do you understand the sinful “exchange” Paul highlights in Romans 1?

9. Do you believe that passages like 1 Corinthians 6:9 and Revelation 21:8 teach that sexual immorality can keep you out of heaven?( More )

Some of us warned this was coming ( City threatens to arrest ministers who refuse to perform same-sex weddings )

Two Christian ministers who own an Idaho wedding chapel were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to a $1,000 fine, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court.

Alliance Defending Freedom is representing Donald and Evelyn Knapp, ordained ministers who own the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene.

“Right now they are at risk of being prosecuted,” their ADF attorney, Jeremy Tedesco, told me. “The threat of enforcement is more than just credible.”

According to the lawsuit, the wedding chapel is registered with the state as a “religious corporation” limited to performing “one-man-one-woman marriages as defined by the Holy Bible.”

But the chapel is also registered as a for-profit business – not as a church or place of worship – and city officials said that means the owners must comply with a local nondiscrimination  ordinance.
