Removal of Crosses
More and more trying to remove Christianity
Removing crosses from the highways in Utah and removal of veterans cross in the Mojave Desert in California. Removal of Nativity scenes from businesses and government offices; removal of the phrase ‘in Jesus name’ from prayers: more and more our government is trying to remove Christianity and anything that appears to resemble Christianity across the whole country. They’re claiming it violates Article 1 of the Constitution. Well what about the Mosques that are springing up everywhere? Is this not showing the establishment of the Islam religion; or when our own president embraces his own Muslim religion and refutes Christianity? I know, today he said he’s Christian, but where are his ‘fruits’, or proof of his claims? The Bible says, “By their ‘fruits’ ye shall know them.”
we Christians need to re-read Ephesians 6 and clothe ourselves in the ‘whole armor of God’
I think it’s about time we Christians re-read Ephesians 6 and begin to clothe ourselves in the ‘whole armor of God’ so that ‘we may be able to stand against all the fiery darts’ being hurled at us just because of what and how we choose to believe. Parents aren’t taking their kids to church anymore in America, they don’t even go themselves except maybe at Easter and/or Christmas for their gift bags of fruit and candy and then they wonder, “What in the world is going on?”
Another observance for example, all other presidents have honored the Boy Scouts of America at their national jamboree in Washington, but not Mr Obama. He went instead to a dinner honoring the Muslims (likewise a religion). Also, when a Boy Scout attains the rank of Eagle Scout it is considered a high honor nationally, even internationally and in the past the president or highest-ranking leader of the nation of residence signs the recipient’s certificate. But not in America, and not this year; Barack Obama refused to sign the certificates thereby dishonoring those having achieved the high honor of Eagle Scout. He didn’t want to anger the homosexual bunch that he favors I guess.
Are you in favor of the mosque at Ground Zero?
Kids appear to be just another deduction
Young people are prohibited from praying before sporting events, or at graduation exercises. And the parents are wringing their hands when little Johnny is caught with drugs or has been beating up by one of his friends or classmates. And what about little Mary, ending up pregnan. The parents say, “we give our children everything they want”; well, what about your time… do parents even spend 5 minutes a day asking ‘what all happened in school’, like they even care? Parents today are too busy; they don’t know how or don’t want to raise their own children... They would rather someone else did it? Kids anymore appear to be just another deduction on their parent’s income tax form each year.
we can’t even recognize the signs all around us –
The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU has become our governments ‘watch dog’ threatening lawsuits at the mere mention of Jesus or God and any semblance of Christianity will bring instant rebuttal or restraint. Where was the ACLU during 9-11, surely they would stand up against the barbaric actions of the extremist… NOT A WORD! What is happening to America we ask? Just as if we didn’t know or have ever heard; or, we can’t even recognize the signs all around us –. “there will be wars and rumors of war, earthquakes in different places…” or Luke 21:25-28 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth, distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Wake up America…
