Florida Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings pointed to Sarah Palin on Wednesday to rally Jews to Obama. The following quote is the most irrational thing that I have read for some time.”If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” said Hastings. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”

What on earth does toting guns and stripping a moose have to do with Jews and blacks? The liberals are really reaching to find something or someone that they can vent their vehement hatred toward, and it seems to be Gov. Sarah Palin. If Palin were a liberal, they would be singing her praises that she is a well rounded woman who can bag a moose and govern a state.

Palin is a Christian conservative and she is proud to be one. Christians are commanded by God to love ALL people. We have a special love for the Jews and our support of them proves it. We also love those who are in a minority state. If one looks at the Christian church, you will see every kind of ministry that reaches out to those who are hurting, poor and persecuted, no matter what color of skin they have or where they live. Christianity is NOT a whites only faith. It includes every people group on earth and you will find churches in every nation on earth that is working to help anyone who is in need. Some of our greatest churches are the black churches and Messianic, Jewish Synagogues and many are speaking out against Obama. They hold the same values as I do and most of you do. When God looks at people, He does not look at the outward appearance but He looks on the heart. Obama’s color has absolutely NO bearing on my vote. If Condi Rice were running for President, I would not hesitate to vote for her. Obama’s positions are opposite of those held by Christian people. Killing innocent, unborn babies is murder and God does not condone murder. Celebrating the homosexual lifestyle is a central theme of Obama’s campaign but God says that sex with the same sex is an abomination. When will Christians wake up and see what lies at the root of this campaign? McCain and Palin are avid supporters of ending abortion and protecting marriage against this assault. California, Arizona and Florida have constitutional amendment ballot measures to make marriage between a man and a woman the only one that is recognized.

Congressperson Hastings is pathetic to suggest that Palin is racist. She is from Alaska, for heavens sake! Where do you find racism in Alaska? The Eskimos are the original inhabitants and the rest came there later. I find it sickening to find racism in any people group. Jesus died to bring us to Himself and us to each other in real love and kindness. The more the liberals whine, the more McCain and Palin look great. Keep it up! You are turning the tide toward another Republican president.

I will be voting for McCain/Palin without a doubt. They are both more qualified to be in the two highest offices in the land. Obama is still trying to find the fifty-seventh state to campaign in. It may be a while until we reach the fifty-seventh, since Alaska was the fiftieth.

“When the righteous rule , the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.” Supreme Court Justice and one-time governor of New Jersey William Paterson quoting the words of Proverbs 29:2 (1745-1806)“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” First U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay (1745-1829)

 

“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.”Samuel Adams Signer of the Declaration of Independence (1722-1803)

 

“The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them. …God cannot sustain this free and blessed country which we love and pray for unless the Church will take right ground.” Charles Finney, American evangelist, theologian and author (1792-1875)   Are you confused by all the political spin today? Then let your biblical values be your guide.  Don’t miss your privilege to vote! Your one vote really does count!

The following poem illustrates what our founding fathers meant for America to be. The Bible was the road map for all our major documents. The Declaration of Independence is easily traced back to Christian sermons given before this great document was written. Twenty-nine of the fifty-six signers of it held theological degrees. Harvard, Yale and other major colleges were started to train preachers of the gospel so that they could convert the Indian tribes and settlers to Christ. Today, Christians try to do the same work in modern America. We love this great nation and its people. Some have slanderously compared us to radical Islam, saying that we are violent and divisive. It is amazing how ignorant some folks can be. Our history is filled with people who have sacrificed their lives so that others can know the love and forgiveness of God. An estimated seventy million Christians have been murdered for their faith since Jesus walked on the earth. Two hundred million live today with persecution, brutality and death, simply for spreading the truth. You will never find a Christian who blew themselves up to kill innocent people. What you will find is self-sacrifice to make others free. May we live out what this poem says that Jesus Christ/Yeshua HaMashiach might be worshiped by billions of people worldwide.

Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, union;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Saint Francis Assisi

The world is filled with people who are leading countless millions around by the nose. People who are out to make a quick buck by making themselves out to be spiritual leaders,
who really aren’t. Most religions have some idol that they bow down to and worship. They seem to forget that some man carved or chiseled this thing out of a rock, log or other material. When did it become sacred?
It is just a piece of stuff, not divine. There are also those who claim to have some sort of psychic powers to tell the future. They don’t! They are merely bilking you out of your money. Horoscopes are made up by someone sitting in a downtown apartment smoking cigarettes and drinking
a beer, yet millions live their lives by this stuff. “Don’t go out of the house today, something bad is going to happen.” “Don’t pet your dog today, you will get hair on your hand.” “Something significant is going to happen to you today.” This stuff is so bogus!The one and only true God has much to say about this foolishness. Please take the time to read the following verses.
“To whom would you liken Me and make Me equal and compare Me, that we would be alike?  Those who lavish gold from the purse and weigh silver on the scale hire a goldsmith, and
he makes it into a god; they bow down, indeed they worship it.  They lift it upon the shoulder and carry it; they set it in its place and it stands there. It does not move from its place.
Though one may cry to it, it cannot answer; it cannot deliver him from his distress. Remember this, and be assured; recall it to mind, you transgressors. Remember the former things long past, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure’; calling a bird of prey from the east, the man of My purpose from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.”  Isaiah 46:5-11″You are wearied with your many counsels; let now the astrologers, those who prophesy by the stars, those who predict by the new moons, stand up and save you from what will come upon you.  Behold, they have become like stubble, fire burns them; they cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame; there will be no coal to warm by nor a fire to sit before!  So have those become to you with whom you have labored, who have trafficked with you from your youth; each has wandered in his own way; there is none to save you.” Isaiah 47:13-15

Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?

The beginning of the end for Great Britain is coming. The Times is reporting that the Parliament has moved to allow cases with Muslims to be tried under Sharia Law. Wonder if they will allow this with all religious groups? NOT! This is the root of the problem. A cursive check of what has happened to other nations who allowed Shaira Law to get a foothold will reveal a total takeover of that nation by Muslims by declaring jihad and making Islam the only religion that is tolerated. If you are not Islamic then you will be slaves and heavily taxed.

This capitulation to the Islamics is but step one. Like a Boa Constrictor, Islam takes every opportunity to tighten its grip on a nation’s sovereignty and self-rule. Every breath that the victim takes, Islam is there to constrict its victim into total submission. Islam is NOT a religion of peace; it is first and foremost an ideology like the Nazis, Communists and other world dominating ideas. It is secondly a personal faith. These are the words of Walid Shoebat, a former Hamas terrorist. He says that what the west is being told is an outright lie. What Islam means by this peaceful religion mantra is that when Islam rules the whole world then there will be peace. Until then it will take over nations in any way that it can. Appeasement will NEVER work with Islam. They never give anything back in return when an agreement is made with them. They only promise to stop bombing you if you will give something that they want. They are using this effectively in Israel today. The ignorance of those who are giving land for peace astounds me. Of all people who should know that this is their strategy, the Israelis are falling right into their trap. When will the west wake up and put their foot down? Tragically, what the west if obsessed with today is money, sex and power. As long as these are freely available it makes little difference who is ruling them. The same with this presidential election, all one has to do is look at the platforms of the democrats and republicans to see which one is supporting immorality and which one is supporting morality. Abortion, homosexual marriage, trying to legalize marijuana, decriminalizing sex with under aged children and the list goes on and on. This is the liberal agenda and how any Christian or other moral person could even consider voting for Obama or other liberal politicians is a mystery to me. Don’t be fooled by the Christian rhetoric of Obama. His life and values are diametrically opposed to what the Bible teaches. Please, look at the issues and take your eyes off the hype of Hollywood and the media. Obama is NOT qualified to be commander of our military, foreign policy or domestic government. His whole strategy is to hypnotize voters by chanting mantras that are easy to remember, but without any real content. Turn off your TVs for a week and actually take the time to research his words and you will find that he depends on keeping voters dumbed down. Wake up before it is too late. He has far too many Muslim friends to not have ties to them. In his book he said that when it comes down to the bottom line that he will always stay on the side of Muslims. Check it out for yourself in his book about his father.

America is going the same direction as did ancient Israel. Because of their rebellion to the commands of God, they suffered the loss of everything including their homeland. They remained a people without a land until God restored them to the Promised Land in 1948. Note the warnings from God to His people. Remember, America was founded on the Bible and Christianity. Our founding documents are replete with references to this. Blackstone’s law books are loaded with references to the Bible. McGuffey readers are full of Bible references, stories and the Ten Commandments that were there to guide all students who studied them.
Today, America is being infiltrated with false religions and this is precisely what brought down Israel. God is not into multiculturalism, but He is into truth. John Adams said that our constitution was written for a moral people and that it cannot endure any other kind. Please take the time to read the following passage.

“Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel. Thus says the Lord,’ Do not learn the way of the nations, And do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens Although the nations are terrified by them; For the customs of the peoples are delusion; Because it is wood cut from the forest, The work of the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool.  They decorate it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers So that it will not totter.  Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field are they, and they cannot speak; they must be carried, because they cannot walk! Do not fear them, for they can do no harm, nor can they do any good.’ There is none like You, O Lord; You are great, and great is Your name in might. Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? Indeed it is Your due! For among all the wise men of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is none like You. But they are altogether stupid and foolish in their discipline of delusion — their idol is wood! Beaten silver is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, The work of a craftsman and of the hands of a goldsmith; Violet and purple are their clothing; they are all the work of skilled men. But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure His indignation. Thus you shall say to them, ‘The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth will perish from the earth and from under the heavens. It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom; and by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens. (Intelligent Design) When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, and brings out the wind from His storehouses. Every man is stupid, devoid of knowledge; every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols; for his molten images are deceitful, and there is no breath in them. They are worthless, a work of mockery; in the time of their punishment they will perish. The portion of Jacob is not like these; for the Maker of all is He, And Israel is the tribe of His inheritance; The Lord of hosts is His name.”  Jeremiah 10:1-16

Many today would try to dismiss God’s rule over them, and He has given them this freedom of choice, but mankind does so at his own peril. The God of the Bible has shown Himself to be the one and only true God. Just think of all the religions who bow down to rocks, chunks of wood and metal, only to get no response from them. One could break them up with a sledge hammer and get no retribution from them since they are worthless. God forbids man to make an image of Him so that he will not worship worthless, manmade things. He will ultimately have the last say and there will be no place for slick lawyers to get you out of the Lake of Fire. This is reality! Think on these things and then grab a Bible and begin reading about the great love that God has for mankind. But for those who refuse His love and forgiveness, they will be judged and sentenced to eternal separation from Him, by their own choice, in Hell. God sends NO ONE to Hell; each one chooses where they will spend eternity. Your choice is critical. God says, “Choose life!” America is going the same direction as did ancient Israel. Because of their rebellion to the commands of God, they suffered the loss of everythging including thier homeland. They remained a people without a land until God restored them to the Promised Land in 1948. Note the warnings from God to His people. Remember, America was founded on the Bible and Christianity. Our founding documents are replete with references to this. Blackstone’s law books are loaded with references to the Bible. McGuffey readers are full of Bible references, stories and the Ten Commandments that were there to guide all students who studied them.

“Thus says the Lord, ‘Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the Lord.  For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when prosperity comes, but will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, a land of salt without inhabitant.  Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose trust is the Lord.  For he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit.”  Jeremiah 17:5-8

Isn’t it interesting that mankind falls into one of these two categories. Those who ignore God end up in deep trouble, those who trust in God find success in all facets of life. The choice is yours and mine, making the wrong choice will always end up in the ditch. How many business men and women have spent time in jail or prison because they made the wrong choices. Remember Martha Stewart? Will she ever really regain the respect of those who once followed her? Very doubtful! Will Bill Clinton ever live down Monica Lewinski? Will O.J. Simpson ever have the respect he once enjoyed?

Someone wisely said, “Never do today what you don’t want to appear in tomorrow’s headlines.”  Good advice!

“The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?  I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give to each man according to his ways, according to the results of his deeds.  As a partridge that hatches eggs which it has not laid, so is he who makes a fortune, but unjustly; in the midst of his days it will forsake him, and in the end he will be a fool.”  (Emphasis added)
Jeremiah 17:9-11

Sounds an awful lot like the mess on Wall Street today, doesn’t it? Greed, arrogance and self-interest have made fools out of otherwise decent men and women. Now they stand disgraced by their own actions. How do you ever live down such foolishness? Greedy, self-centered politicians are equally guilty. Getting re-elected is more important than doing the right thing for the people they represent. The great hope in my mind is to elect McCain and Palin and then turning the new Vice President loose on the corruption and greed in DC. Sic em!

San Francisco’s city council resolution gives us a glimpse of the impact that homosexual marriage will have on religious liberties.

It unanimously passed a resolution condemning Christian objections to counterfeit marriages as “absolutely unacceptable” and “hateful and discriminatory.”

Do you remember seeing these signs in restaurants a few years ago, and maybe in some still?

“WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANYONE” “NO SHIRT, NO SHOES, NO SERVICE”

That was and is ‘personal freedom.’ Now, who has the freedom of speech, the right to refuse service to people who are objectionable to our moral values and to those who would make us compromise our own consciences? It seems that the Constitution no longer is consulted by these extremists. In this case, if Prop 8 is defeated, the courts will throw pastors and church leaders into jail if they refuse to marry homosexual people. Do I need to quote the First Amendment to you again? Well, here it is just for a refresher course.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Note that it says NO law, yet judges, legislatures and even our U.S. Congress is doing this very thing. “NOR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF…” makes it crystal clear that no government agency shall tell religious people what they can or cannot, will nor will not do in their churches. “OR ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH,” makes it clear that NO ONE can tell us what we can or cannot say. We are free to express our feelings about ANY subject, about ANYONE or ANYTHING; yet, this is exactly what the California Supremes, at least four of them, are telling us. Political Correctness is a bunch of garbage rolled up and distributed by liberal media talking heads, judges and legislators. THEY ARE OUT OF LINE WITH THE CONSTITUTION! WHAT THEY ARE TELLING US IS ‘UNCONSTITUTIONAL!’ Why aren’t we rising up and taking them to the Supreme Court on this insanity? What will have to happen to make us have enough guts to stop this stuff before the Gestapo troops start entering our homes to take away our weapons, phones and any other things that we might use to defend our rights? Are Americans so gutless as to let this just happen without a powerful move on our part? The old ‘Frog In The Kettle’ adage fits perfectly here. Many Americans are just cooking away and not even realizing that the heat has been turned up. Brain deadness is the most deadly place a person can be. B. F. Skinner wanted to give lobotomies to anyone who did not fit into his agenda, are we getting mental lobotomies from listening to the liberal talking heads? I have no doubt about this. It is time to get out of the kettle and say NO to this attempt to take over America by Socialists, Communists and the crazies.

“If good men (and women) do nothing, evil will prevail. It is great to see Mrs. (not Ms.) Palin hunting big game. Now there’s a woman a man can relate to. You go girl!
