“… Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:8
These words of Jesus tell us two things: He is coming again, and it will be a time when Christianity is in decline: “Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies and hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron” (1Timothy 4:1-20).

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3).
On Friday, June 26, 2015, the final stone in the foundation of marriage in America was removed by the Supreme Court. This is not about equality for all people. This is the redefining of marriage, which authority is not governed by human law. The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being. Marriage is not an institution created by man. Marriage was God’s idea. He created the blueprint for marriage, and He is on record that it is between “one man and one woman.” When He created woman from man, He personally brought her to the man. God never brings a man to a man or a woman to a woman. He said:
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). At the time, Adam didn’t have a mother or father, so why did God say this? He was laying as a foundation for all time the governing principle: Marriage is between a husband and wife.

It’s that time again – time to lift your voice for your choice of those whom you believe will serve our nation well in their elected offices — It’s time to VOTE!
Do you exercise your right — your privilege — to go to the polls and cast your vote? If you don’t, then you really do not have a right to voice your opinion or complaint about the way things are being run and done in your community and the nation. And as a Christian, you should cast your vote for those who espouse the ideals and beliefs that you stand for. Continue reading Is God in the Voting Booth?
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization and relief agency dedicated to serving children and their families in their communities in nearly 100 nations. They provide emergency assistance in disasters and civil conflicts, and seek to alleviate poverty and injustice of the poor. (Mission Statement world vision.org)
Shockingly, this highly respected Christian charity issued a statement earlier this week that they would begin hiring “Christians” in same-sex marriages. Apparently, members of their board have very liberal “un-biblical” views on homosexuality. They were, however, inundated with outcries from prominent Christian leaders that this violates Jesus’ teaching concerning marriage. Following are excerpts from two news agencies: Continue reading WORLD VISION: A Sign of Things to Come?
The following is my response to opinion piece by Dan Rodricks, a columnist for the Baltimore Sun, concerning gay marriage rights. His original article can be found here.
“What would Jesus do?” The Sun’s Dan Rodricks asked recently in reference to same-sex marriage (“Same-sex unions: What would Jesus do?” Oct. 25). He was highly upset by remarks made by a local Baptist preacher regarding a New Testament Bible verse, Romans 1:32, that states that homosexuality, along with other sins, “is worthy of death.” The short answer is, according to both Old and New Testaments, in scores of verses too numerous to cite here, all sin is worthy of death.
