First, let me say, that I have a lot of fun on this site. Discussing my beliefs, others beliefs, and so on. Long have I looked for a place where I could voice my opinion without fear of Net Reprisal. As with WiccanWade, I have had some very bad experiences online with people who had nothing better to do then to attack me based on my religous beliefs. Most who attacked me though, were Wiccan. Now I do not claim to know a lot about witchcraft, but I do know some things about it. And the one thing that stands out to me is "Do as you will, and harm none." That saying sure doesn't look like it goes very well with a lot of Wiccans. Now, Bill I know who is a Wiccan has been nothing but kind to me, and for that, I thank you. No one here has attacked me in any way for my opinions, and for that, I thank all of you as humbly as I possibly can. (Which most who know me, would say, there ain't no humility about it!)
How many of you guys watch the Fox news Channel? How many of you watch Bill O'Reilly? I watch it daily as I like the way he asks the hard questions. But the one question that seems to be on the mind of Christians Nationwide is, "Is God being chased out of America's public forum?" And, "When will the ACLU succeed in killing God in Private life?"
The answer to both of these questions: First--Yes. The bible says that eventually, it will be illegal to believe in Christ, or to be a Christian. We can see this coming even now. Now, I am not one to say "break-the-law," but I will say that Christians have the right to worship just as the wiccans, the buddhists, the taoists, and so on, do. But somewhere down the line, that will vanish. We will be called Terrorists. We will be jailed, and even killed for our belief. This is not something I want to see. I pray to God that he'll call me home before then.
This is what I see as far as the subject of this post. First, In Colorado, the ACLU wants the Pledge of Allegiance gone. Because of the word God in it. They think that it violates a person's civil rights. They say that it forces people to a line of thinking that they do not necessarily need to go on. This is not true. At least, not that I have seen, both in life, and in watching the news. Whats next for the USA? Have "in God We Trust" removed from coins and bills? Eventually, the word "God" will disappear. The Secularists of this world want nothing more than to kill the belief of God. Now this does not point to other beliefs/religions. As far as I can tell, it only points at the Christian God.
Plus, you have whats going on in Alabama. The Ten Commandments being removed from the Chief Justice Moore's Courthouse. He broke the law to stall it from happening. Now I think he is right, but he went about it the wrong way. For the past forty to fifty years, the Secularists have been chasing God out of public life. When they succeed, and they will, they will then eventually target the belief in God in our private lives. Although, I doubt that will happen anytime soon. But it will happen.
Now as far as NAMBLA goes. The National Association of the Man/Boy Love Affair/association.(Not sure of the last letter in the anachronysm)
Now I have no problems with people of the Homosexual persuasion. But I DO have a problem with those of that persuasion who abuse children. Whether male or female. NAMBLA is a website that promotes this kind of evil behaviour. Guess who is representing them? The ACLU. Now for me, anyone who would defend a person's "right" to abuse children, or show others "how to abuse children" deserves what they get. I have three kids through marriage, and I love my step-kids as if they were my own. And I would probably end up in jail or worse, if they were abused by someone like the ones that website promotes.
God is faithful to his believers, just as I am faithful in Him for his ability during my troubles. He is the one who fights my battles for me. When I rely on him. Unfortuantely, I am not where I should be in respect to my relationship with God. But I know beyond any kind of a shadow of a doubt, that this situation is going to get worse.
Think about it for a minute as I present to you the evidence I have seen on the news, and in "Real life" (if life can be referred to as "real.")
First, the seperation of Church and State. Do I agree with this? The answer is yes, I do. Why? Because it is inappropriate. That does not mean that a public official cannot be a Christian. It just means the we give to Caeser, what belongs to Caeser. What we give to God, belongs to God. Thus far, there is no law saying we cannot be Christian. At least not yet anyway. Truthfully, I am afraid for me, and my fellow Christians, for the things that are yet, still to come. The Church has for the most part, become so back-slidden, they wouldn't know God if he showed up on their doorstep. Man has gotten to involved with it. God's work has become tainted by Man's interferance. The best example of this is the Crusades. I hear all the time that people are not Christian because of them. This "excuse" is preposterous. Why you ask? Because God had nothing to do with them. Man did. It had nothing to do with God, and it had everything to do with Control, Greed, and money, and power. Man thirsts for these things. God does not. God just wants us to love him, as he loved, and loves us.
So I challenge all of you on this Site. Watch the news for a week. Watch especially on Fox News. Watch and see for yourself what I say is coming true. God, defend me, defend my country, and defend my friends, and my loved ones, because no one else can.
My heart and mind to all of you who have read this. And know, that the one who loved you first, still loves you. He is still calling to you now. Can you hear him from so far away?
I look forward to this discussion.
