What is the conservative Christian view of DACA?

What is the conservative Christian view of DACA?  DACA is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  I don’t mean conservative Christians as a group.  I mean each and every individual who considers themselves Christian, especially the conservatives.  What is your stance?  And, how do you feel about the leaders you support – both politically and within your church organization?  

Who loves you? The Government or God?

Who loves you? The Government or God?

Who loves you? The government or God? Does that seem like a dumb question?  Honestly, it did to me.  As soon as I typed it and saw it on the screen.  It’s like, why do I even have to ask that question?  But I do.  It’s a question that apparently needs to be asked over and over again.

Religion and Government – their impact on our salvation

Religion and Government – their impact on our salvation.  I wrote this about two and a half years ago.  It’s amazing how much things have changed in that short time.  It look at different forms of government, with different combinations of intertwining between government and religion. 

But now, here in the U.S., it’s getting really hard to tell which one we are anymore.  Less and less a democracy – and more and more a weird kind of theocracy / dictatorship combination.  It’s scary.  Not just for what its doing to our country, but also to our salvation.  Especially those who are pushing and supporting the strange and unBiblical alliances being set up here.

Do not be afraid. Unless I hate you?

Do not be afraid. Unless I hate you?

Do you know what “Do not be afraid” is supposed to mean to Christians?  And if you’re a “Trump” Christian, do you understand the significance of adding “unless I hate you”?  Christian or not, I’ll tell you, there’s no place in the Bible where you’ll find “unless I hate you” said in the same sentence as “do not be afraid”.  So why do some Christians insist on hating?

Satanic temple statue is one reason why separation of church and state is a good thing.

Satanic temple statue is one reason why separation of church and state is a good thing.

I mean, it’s not like the satanic temple is out there forcing anything.  They’re just taking advantage of things that Christians have pushed for!  What are we thinking?  Are we thinking?

Do we have eyes to see?  Do we have ears to hear?  Do we understand our own Scriptures?  Do we even read them?  Are we – Christians – so busy pushing our own agenda, rather than Jesus’ agenda, that we’re actually the ones bringing ourselves closer to the end?

Our Thoughts and Prayers Go Out … Our hearts go out

Our Thoughts and Prayers Go Out … Our hearts go out

Yes – thoughts and prayers are important.  Prayers, especially.  But having said that, sometimes that’s not enough.  For better or worse, Jesus left us with the commands to be His representatives on earth – Christians.  As such, sometimes what we need to do is truly be His representative.  To do the things He’d want us to do.

would you go to church in a boat?

Would you go to church in a boat?

Would you go to church in a boat?  I recently read a headline that made me ask this question of myself.  Now, I wonder how others might answer.  It’s happening right now.  The deadline I read was: Two secret churches in {country name to follow} show how powerful the Bible really is.  

The article starts off with this:

In the early morning light, a small group of{country name to follow} believers meets on the riverbank, lugging their fishing gear with them.

Quietly, they load into a small boat and push off from land. It’s not until they’re far into the middle of the river that they … to dig through their gear and pull out their Bibles.

Would you do this?

Chinese authorities destroy two Marian shrines

Chinese authorities destroy two Marian shrines – shocking – or expected?

Chinese authorities destroy two Marian shrines.  Some are probably shocked, since the Vatican just signed a mysterious agreement with China related to having the Communist Party in China appoint Bishops of the Catholic Church in that country.  However, if you’ve read China appoints seven Catholic Bishops – did the Pope just sell out underground churches? then you shouldn’t be surprised at all.  If anything, this was to be expected.

So Sad. Can you even imagine Paul or any of the Saints from the early church telling people to Wait for better times because the Roman Empire isn’t eternal?

We can lie to ourselves and each other, but not to God

We can lie to ourselves and each other, but not to God

We can lie to ourselves and each other, but not to God.  As hard as we try, and no matter how much we may convince ourselves of success, we cannot lie to God.  I just read something from nbsnews.com – Ministers interrupt Sessions, are removed from religious freedom conference.  I wish I could say I was shocked by it.  Unfortunately, this kind of thing is happening all too often.  And judging by the reaction of the first comment, people actually go for this stuff.  I’d include the comment, but I’d have to bleep it.
