What should be the Christian attitude to authorities in our lives.
Hi: I’m Billy David Dickson with a thought on the Bible.
It tells us in Romans chapter 13, check it out, all authority has been established by the Lord. It doesn’t matter if the leader is a parent, a teacher, your pastor, or a government leader.
So how should we respond to our leaders.
First off we are to respect them. If we don’t honor our leaders we are really showing disrespect to God. Because God is the one which has given them power.Those folks who don’t honor Donald Trump as President, or did not honor Barack Obama as President are really not honoring the Lord. Now it is ok to disagree with a leader, but we must do it in respectful way.
Then we should pray for our leaders. It doesn’t matter if you voted for a leader, or not.
There might come a time when we have to disobey a leader. Just like Peter when he was told not to preach Jesus, he said, “we must obey God rather than man.” If by obeying a leader we would be disobeying the law of God we must submit to the Lord. Now we should not just not disobey a leader, or a law because we don’t agree with him, or it. They must be in conflict with God. There is also a difference between something being allowed, and you being forced to do something. In Germany when Hitler was in power every follower of Jesus should have disobeyed him, and helped the Jewish citizens of that nation. We may even have to not follow the teaching of a spiritual leader. Awhile back the leader of a church said Jewish people don’t need Jesus. Every true believer in that church should keep sharing Christ with others including with Jewish folks.The Bible makes it clear there is salvation in no other name, but Jesus Christ.
That is a thought on the Bible.
Until next time,
I’m Billy David Dickson

Mickey Mantle New York baseball star gave his life to Christ on his death bed

The following is an excerpt from Richardson’s 2012 book, “Impact Player,” where he details the final conversation he had with Mantle, just days before Mickey passed on.

On the plane, as I realized this likely would be my final visit with Mickey, I prayed for my teammate’s life.

We arrived in Dallas that night. First thing the next morning, I headed to the hospital. I didn’t know what to expect as I pushed open the door.

Mickey flashed his down-home, country-boy smile.

“I can’t wait to tell you this,” Mantle said right away. “I want you to know that I’m a Christian. I’ve accepted Christ as my Savior.”

Scaramucci no conservative, warns an actual conservative

A Washington, D.C.-based conservative activist says fellow conservatives should be concerned about Anthony Scaramucci’s presence at the White House.

The flamboyant financier landed at the White House last week with the title of communications director, but Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union says conservatives need to keep an eye on the tough-talking New York liberal.

“And make sure that he’s not going off message,” says Knight, “that he doesn’t have a personal agenda, that he isn’t retreating into what appears to be a very liberal background.”

News outlets reported earlier this week that Scaramucci’s past social media tweets reveal support for abortion, same-sex marriage, and tougher gun laws, and he opposedto a border wall with Mexico.

UK government is not little Charlie’s mommy, or daddy ( sure you want this kind of healthcare system here in America )

Little Charlie

Anyone looking for another reason not to leave life-and-death issues to the state need look no further than the conflict between the British government and the parents of 11-month-old Charlie Gard.

Governments, including the British courts and the European court of human rights have refused to allow Charlie’s parents to take him to the U.S. for what they believe is life-saving treatment. In what many will regard as a cynical decision, UK judge Nicholas Francis gave Charlie’s parents just two days to present new evidence as to why their son should receive experimental treatment. A final decision will be handed down in a hearing on Thursday.

Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital where Charlie is on a ventilator, his brain reportedly damaged from a rare genetic condition, argue that he should be removed from life support and allowed to die. President Trump has offered help. Pope Francis also supports the parent’s right to determine what is best for their child.

Charlie’s parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, believe an experimental treatment known as nucleoside therapy might work on their son. British doctors say it won’t improve the child’s “quality of life.” They want him to die. Apparently that’s OK with the state-run National Health Service (NHS), which is always looking for ways to cut costs.

The parents have raised enough money to take Charlie to America for treatment. Wouldn’t most parents do all they could for their child, especially one so young who is helpless and at the mercy of adults? I know I would for my grandson, who is also named Charlie.

Did you ever think parents would have to worry about this

Dear Amy: My teenage daughter has a close friend named “Edward.” Edward used to be a girl and began transitioning to male last year. Their circle of friends has been intact for years, and they have all been very supportive of Edward.

We are planning a slumber party for my daughter’s upcoming birthday. She would like to invite six girls plus Edward to spend the night. Normally, there would be no way that I’d allow a boy to spend the night, but this situation is very different.

I don’t want to exclude or hurt Edward. I just don’t know what is appropriate.

If we do invite him, must we tell the other parents that there will be a boy (although he’s biologically a girl) spending the night? I want to act with compassion but still be prudent and responsible. Please advise?

Teen’s Mom

Teen’s Mom: I think that (almost no matter the question concerning your child’s plans) if you are worrying about telling other parents, or wondering whether to tell parents, then you should probably tell the parents.

I shared your question with Shannon Garcia, director of TransYouth Family Allies (Imatyfa.org). She responded, “Often times, the topic of gender identity is a touchy one. People don’t know what to say or how to act in situations that differ from societal expectations. The best policy is to acknowledge everyone with equal dignity and respect.”

( Billy’s thoughts – I would not have turned to the person Amy asked for input on this matter. You can read the full answer here. My question/thought is would you have a boy to sleep over for girls, or a girl to sleep over for boys. No matter what, it is sad parents, along with their children are facing this. )

After Georgia, Republicans celebrating, Dems searching

DUNWOODY, Ga. (June 21, 2017) — Republicans can enjoy some breathing room after winning a Georgia special congressional race that morphed from an afterthought in the usually conservative Atlanta suburbs into an expensive national proxy for Washington wars ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Message to Families from the late Vince Foster who worked for President Clinton until his death ( good message regardless what your politics is ) 

Listen to a commentary by Dr. James Dobson right here.

When a kid is hurt, do not be concerned about the hurt young person,instead focus on those who feelings are hurt by prayer ( give me a break ) 


A school district is under attack by atheists after an anti-Christian group filed a virulent complaint against a Tennessee school system because its staff bowed their heads while a youth pastor prayed for a seriously injured high school football player down on the field.
When the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) caught wind of coaches bowing their heads while an adult got down on his knees to pray for an injured player on the field, it filed a complaint against the district that includes East Ridge High School and Central High School.
Need permission to pray?
Pastor Eric Dill of Bayside Baptist Church insists that his intention was solely to help the injured player – not to make anyone feel uncomfortable, make a religious statement, for recognition or to get 25,000 Facebook views – which were triggered from FFRF’s complaint.
Dill came to the aid of a player who was down on the field for nearly half an hour after receiving a hard blow to the neck that made him unable to move his legs while waiting for an ambulance.
“A neck injury is the scariest part of football,” the youth pastor told WRCB TV, adding that when a player asked him to pray, he merely submitted to God’s will. “It was almost dead silence … about the only thing I could hear on the field was like sniffling, and just players getting emotional.”
