“I am the LORD (YHWH), and there is no other; besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, thought you have not known Me; that men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun that there is no one besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other, the One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these.”    –   Isaiah 45:5-7

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  – Genesis 1:1

Words to live by, Ike

“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”                                                                            Psalm 11:3
The righteous cry out to God for help!
“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.”                                           Proverbs 13:20

“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away.”                                                                     

  Psalm 1:1-4

The liberals are acting like the Nazi party during the beginning of WW II. On record with the war department of that day, is the fact that all the airwaves in Germany were totally under the control of the Nazis. No one could disagree with them unless they desired beatings, imprisonment or death. Any time a government shuts down the freedom of speech it is fast becoming a dictatorship.
I refer you to an earlier article that I wrote on Democracy vs. Republic. A republic, which is our chosen form of government, allows every person the right and freedom to determine the direction of his or her country. With some major liberals now strongly suggesting putting a muzzle on the mouth of talk radio, monitoring student’s speech in public schools and Pastors told not to speak about what the Bible commands them to speak, they are attempting to do the same as Adolph did in the past.
Many of our liberal legislators have committed treason since the War on Terror began. Quotes that are now used on Al Jazira (spelling?) radio, also controlled by one voice, are from our congressmen and women. The insane suggestion by some of them that 9-11 was our fault or was an inside job, is outright treason. They have said openly that we have lost the war in Iraq, that it was a bumper sticker campaign and that it was a mistake to go to war are all bouncing around. Committing treason to gain political advantage is horrendous. Let them tell our brave troops and the over 3,000 of them who have given their lives fighting it their opinions. These statements demand an open apology to our soldiers in the war now.
What if the media, Hollywood and our legislators had taken this position during WW II? We would today be speaking German, no doubt in my mind. During Viet Nam, the now Senator John Kerry, Jane Fonda and others caused the deaths of countless soldiers and other personnel in the war. John Kerry is still making anti-American noise and the TV talk circuit have replaced Jane Fonda. I wonder how many of these “EXPERTS” ever served our country in the military. Usually the loudest mouths show themselves to be cowards when it comes to defending our country. Who do they think gave them their freedoms in the first place. Huge military cemeteries all over the world are covered by Crosses and Stars of David grave stones. Those who bled and died assured our freedoms today as are our courageous troops deployed around the world tonight.
Gaining political advantage is the game but I think that it is time for freedom loving Americans to begin a campaign to move as many of them out of office as we can and NOT electing one of them for our next president. This whole thing is as serious as a heart attack and we had better do something or the freedoms that we now enjoy will be snatched away by our Socialist leaning legislators.
I was born, raised, served our country in the military and have been a pastor for over thirty years and  I have never seen such an attack on the freedom of speech and other freedoms as we have today. I heard this very morning on liberal television talk shows that no one should have a gun except law enforcement and military. The liberals want a Fairness Doctrine enacted again? How would this work in teaching Creation along side of Evolution, teaching Christianity in schools along side atheism (which is a registered religion) and so on? It isn’t about freedom at all, it is brazenly trying to shut up their opposition who are presenting the truth to the American public.
I am really disgusted with those who are supposed to uphold the Constitution and govern by the will of the people. The will of the people is being trampled under foot and replaced by the will of extremist politicians. Let’s let them know how we “Little People” feel at the ballot boxes across this great nation come election day.
Let’s get active. Phone calls, e-mails, letters, faxes and petitions usually get their attention. It is time to restore America to her chosen form of government, a Republic, where everyone has a voice.

PS I honestly am writing from a genuine heart of love for all people and from the red, white and blue blood of an American Patriot.

Thank you for reading this.

According to the last U. S. census, only 0.8% of U. S. citizens listed themselves as gay or lesbian. How on earth can such a small percentage of our population be so much in control of so many legislators, media personalities and public schools? Tragically, these groups are using these people for their own ends. A group of 0.8% could never get this type of position if it were not for those who are exploiting them. There is a huge push by those many of our elected officials and the media to rid America of God. This will never happen! They will someday die but God will go on forever. By approving of other’s sins it seems to justify their own sins. They look to find someone that the general public sees as more sinful than themselves. There is great immorality in the lives of many legislators and those who run the media. Who would ever have thought that someone could have sent their son or daughter to Washington to serve their elected officials and for them to USE them as sex objects and to be quietly pushed aside. I recently saw a note in the newspaper about Monica Lewinski. It noted that no one wants to marry her because of what happened with our then President Clinton. The quietly pushed aside has not worked very well, has it? From the President to the Congress these abuses have made headline news.

This blog has nothing to do with hate speech as I truly love all human beings. It has to do with a lifestyle that is destructive to those in it and to the nation in which they live. It is time that we deal with homosexuals as God would. He wants to rescue them and set them free. IIsn’t it time for people to stop exploiting these people and seek to help them. Homosexuality takes it toll on those who live in it.

FACT: The average life expectancy for a gay man is 42 years. It is about 44 for lesbians. Many suffer horribly today from STD’s and from isolation. I have been to Uganda, Africa twice on mission trips and saw firsthand the suffering of those who have AIDS. Almost all of the patients had TB as well as AIDS.

There is no medical evidence that there is such a thing as a ‘gay’ gene. Over and over it is shown that it is a lifestyle choice. The more this is promoted among school students and through the media the more people are drawn into this lifestyle. Thousands have chosen to come out. Many Christian ministries see this happen every day. I write this out of concern for those who now live such empty lives as homosexuals. This issue does not call for condemnation but compassion. They are our fellow human beings, all made in the image of God, spiritually. Compassion is not about accepting this lifestyle as a good thing but telling the truth about it so that people can make informed decisions. God will forgive anyone for their sin if they are willing to confess it, turn away from it and live in obedience to His will. God is love! His very nature is love. It is the very core of His being.

“The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all come to repentance.”                                   2 Peter 3:9

Repentance means to turn 180 degrees and go the other direction. Homosexuality is not the only sin that God will judge. Notice how many sins are included on His list and that he desires that every human being turn away from their sin and put their trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sin.

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators (sex before marriage), nor idolaters (making anyone or anything more important than God in your life), nor adulterers (sex with someone outside your marriage), nor effeminate (cross dressing etc.), nor homosexuals (sex with one who is your own sex), nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified (set apart as holy to God), but you were justified (our sins taken away) in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”                                            1 Corinthians 6:9-11

God designed sex to be a wonderful and fulfilling thing between a man and his wife. When mankind takes it out of this context this brings the judgment of God. His goal is not to condemn mankind but to set us all free from the things that will ultimately destroy us.

Note that some of the Christians at Corinth had lived in one or more of the sins listed. BUT, they were now free, clean and fully accepted by God as His family members.

You see, God includes every human being on the face of the earth as qualified to receive forgiveness and eternal life by the death, burial and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. You and I are included. He died and paid the penalty for us, leaving us with only one sin to deal with, that of unbelief. I believed and He did just exactly what He said that He would. I have known Him and his love for over thirty years now. He is waiting for you to see your sin for what it is, self-destructive. Admit it to Him and tell Him that you want to turn from your sins and desire to follow Him in a life of obedience to His commands. He will do for you what He has done for everyone who has ever made this commitment. Every sin that you have ever committed will be washed away permanently and God’s Spirit comes to actually live in your human body making you His temple. He will fill you with power to refuse sin and provides you with everything you will need to live a rich, full life in His Son, Jesus.
This is not religion. It is a relationship. It is not a works program since He has done all the work so that you may simply be forgiven for the turning and asking. Religion always holds works over your head and leaves you guessing whether or not you have enough good works to make it into heaven. Christianity is NOT about works. Good deeds come flowing out of our life BECAUSE God is alive in us and out of gratitude we can’t wait to meet the needs of others. Have you ever wondered why most Christians are filled with joy and happiness. (Some Christians allow sin to rob them of their joy and happiness.) True freedom is at the root. Knowing that we are accepted by God in His Son brings joy beyond expression. We no longer have to worry about where we will go when we die and leave this life.
“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I (Jesus) go to prepare a place for YOU. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself, that where I am there you may be also.”                                                      John 14:1-3

I pray that each of you reading this will see that this is about freedom, not condemnation. God still loves you and wants you to become His son or daughter. Do it now. This is what Billy Graham has preached for over fifty years now and myself for over thirty.

Here is more evidence that evolution is on the ropes and up to a nine count. Note that these quotes are from those scientists who once believed in evolution.

“The theory of the transmutation of species is a scientific mistake, untrue in its facts, unscientific in its method, and mischievous in its tendency
                                                    (Prof. J Agassiz, of Harvard in Methods of Study in Natural History).


“Evolution is baseless and quite incredible”
(Dr. Ambrose Fleming, President, British Assoc. Advancement of Science, in The Unleashing of Evolutionary Thought).


“Overwhelming strong proofs of intelligent and benevolent design lie around us…. The atheistic idea is so nonsensical that I cannot put it into words”                              (Lord Kelvin, Vict. Inst., 124, p. 267).


“It is possible and, given the Flood, probable that materials which give radiocarbon dates of tens of thousands of radiocarbon years could have true ages of many fewer calendar years
                                                         (Gerald Aardsman, Ph.D., physicist and C-14 dating specialist).


“We have to admit that there is nothing in the geological records that runs contrary to the views of conservative creationists” (Edmund Ambrose, evolutionist).


“The best physical evidence that the earth is young is the dwindling resource that evolutionists refuse to admit is dwindling the magnetic energy in the field of the earth’s dipole magnet. To deny that it is a dwindling resource is phony science” (Thomas Barnes Ph.D., physicist).


“No matter how numerous they may be, mutations do not produce any kind of evolution
                                                                                                       (Pierre-Paul Grasse, evolutionist).


It is easy enough to make up stories of how one form gave rise to another, and to find reasons why the stages should be favored by natural selection. But such stories are not part of science, for there is no way of putting them to the test”      (Luther D. Sutherland, Darwin’s Enigma, Master Books 1988, p. 89).


“Modern apes…seem to have sprung out of nowhere. They have no yesterday, no fossil record. And the true origin of modern humansis, if we are to be honest with ourselves, an equally mysterious matter”                                                                                        (Lyall Watson, Ph.D., evolutionist).


“Although bacteria are tiny, they display biochemical, structural and behavioral complexities that outstrip scientific description. In keeping with the current microelectronics revolution, it may make more sense to equate their size with sophistication rather than with simplicity. Without bacteria life on earth could not exist in its present form” (James A. Shipiro, “Bacteria as Multicellular Organisms,” Scientific America, Vol. 258, No. 6, June 1988).

Stay tuned for more to come.

The theory that never panned out is now seriously failing in the minds of many scientists and other recognizable names who have been evolutionists for years. Note just a few of hundreds of such quotes.


“If a watch proves the existence of a watchmaker but the universe does not prove the existence of a great Architect, then I consent to be called a fool” (Voltaire).

“The choice is simple: one chooses either a self-existent God or a self-existent universe-and the universe is not behaving as if it is self-existent” (A.J. Hoover).

“The statements of people who do not believe do not outweigh the circumstantial evidence that suggests the universe was the intelligent design of a Creator”
                                                                                            (Russell DeLong).

“I have little hesitation in saying that a sickly pall now hangs over the big bang theory” (Sir Fred Hoyle, astronomer, cosmologist, mathematician, and evolutionist, Cambridge University).

“The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one to a number with 40,000 noughts after it It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution… if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence” (Sir Fred Hoyle, astronomer, cosmologist and mathematician, Cambridge University).

“When I make an incision with my scalpel, I see organs of such intricacy that there simply hasn’t been enough time for natural evolutionary processes to have developed them” (C. Everett Koop, former US Surgeon General).

“The pathetic thing is that we have scientists who are trying to prove evolution, which no scientist can ever prove” (Dr. Robert Millikan, Nobel Prize winner and eminent evolutionist).

“The theory of evolution suffers from grave defects, which are more and more apparent as time advances. It can no longer square with practical scientific knowledge” (Dr. A. Fleishmann, zoologist, Erlangen University).

“It is good to keep in mind that nobody has ever succeeded in producing even one new species by the accumulation of micromutations. Darwin’s theory of natural selection has never had any proof, yet it has been universally accepted” (Prof. R Goldschmidt Ph.D., DSc Prof. Zoology, University of Calif. in Material Basis of Evolution, Yale Univ. Press).

Since evolution is falling apart, what other explanation does one have for explaining how what is came to be? How could a spinal cord, skeleton, brain, muscles, sense of smell, seeing, taste, touch, hearing, a humming bird and a trillion other things that are so complex that our greatest doctors, researchers and others cannot begin to explain their inner workings? Leaves one with a lot to ponder.
Stay tuned for more quotes to come. I find them all very fascinating and I hope you do as well.

Since 9-11, America has been at war with terrorists around the world, but the war of which I speak is not about violence, bombings and terrorist attacks. This attack has been raging for as long as this great nation has been a nation. Our founding fathers knew that the foundation which they laid would immediately be attacked by those who had no intention of adhering to these truths that should be self-evident to all.

Did you know that America has a creed that was written and adopted in 1918? Here it is in all its glory. See if you can recognize the areas where America is being blatantly attacked today.

“I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon the principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and defend it against all enemies.” (underlining for emphasis)

Many of America’s citizens and elected and appointed officials have trampled the blood of the patriots under foot and have actually committed acts of treason against our beloved nation. It never ceases to amaze me how a few have taken such a deliberate course to dumb down the citizens of America by choosing to avoid the teaching of our founding documents, especially the Constitution. How many graduates today can say that they have studied this critical document thoroughly? There was a time when eighth graders could not move on to high school unless they could pass a rigid examination on this cherished document. Why would individuals deliberately keep Americans ignorant of the one document that lays out our rights, privileges and responsibilities as citizens? A quick survey of world history will reveal the answer. This dumbing down is always the method used to erode a nation’s foundations until it collapses, then rush in as the savior to put her back on her feet. Does the name Adolph Hitler ring a bell? We used to hang traitors, but today we follow their teaching like the Pied Piper of Hemline as they lead the citizens off into the river. I lay the blame at the feet of revisionist historians, politicians and many religious leaders. “When good men do nothing evil prevails.” Good men have been lulled into a deep sleep by those who would turn America into a socialist state and destroy our national sovereignty by bringing us under the tyranny of one world government called the United Nations. In the last ten years there have been great strides made in destroying every foundation that the founding fathers and early Americans held so dearly and gave their lives to protect. Liberty is often precious only after it is lost. What a tragic way to find out about such a glorious heritage. Flag burning, liberty bashing, anti-everything that is right, moral and fundamental to maintaining liberty is up for grabs. Our liberties could soon be lost if God-fearing Americans do not stand up and say, “Enough is enough! America is not for sale at any price and as a matter of fact we are totally committed to restoring her to her original condition, so don’t let your ignorance of American history cause you to miss the journey of a lifetime.” We must leave a legacy to our children as our fathers did!
