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.

The high road: Should democrats turn the other cheek?

The High Road: Should democrats turn the other cheek?

I have anything against her.  It’s more that our current president, and those in power that are following / becoming more like him, make me really take another look at both parties.  And I don’t like either one. 

There are so many things that, as a Christian, I must take exception to.  But for whatever reason, God has us living in a democracy.  And we have the ability to vote.  But how do we choose, when both sides are so anti-Christian – if not in word then certainly in deed.  The things both sides do should be unacceptable to Christians.  So how do we choose who to vote for?

Does China want to rewrite the Bible?

Does China want to rewrite the Bible?

Does China want to rewrite the Bible?  Persecution watchdog organization China Aid says yes.  

To better control the growth and influence of Christianity, the Chinese government plans to incorporate Buddhist scripture and Confucian teachings into the Bible and edit worship songs to include Chinese characteristics, the head of a persecution watchdog has revealed.

If you’re a regular, you’ve seen articles here on both “government and religion” and specifically on “Chinese Religious Regulations”.  It appears that China is about to further strengthen its grip on Christianity in China.  This time, it will be by re-translating the Old Testament and re-write commentaries for the New Testament.  Details are available from The Gospel Herald.

China appoints seven Catholic Bishops - did the Pope just sell out underground churches?

China appoints seven Catholic Bishops – did the Pope just sell out underground churches?

I want to close with this passage we read earlier.  It really says a lot about what’s going on when China appoints seven Catholic Bishops.

2Co 11:13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.

Rule over the earth: protect business from a climate problem that doesn't exist?

Rule over the earth: climate change, lies and money.

Rule over the earth: climate change, lies and money.  Genesis says we are to rule over the earth.  Republicans say there is no climate change problem.  Republicans want to spend $12 Billion to protect Texas oil from climate change.  Does no one see the problem here?  Is someone telling lies?

The party of the conservatives wants to spend money on a problem they claim doesn’t exist.  The party of the conservatives wants to spend money to protect the oil companies equipment from a problem caused by their own product.  And let’s not forget, the party of the conservatives includes the religious right, who are supposed to believe that God told us to take care of His creation.

Separation of church and children in China

Separation of church and children in China

Separation of church and state is well known – but separation of church and children? I recently heard about how China was targeting children going to Christian schools.  Given that there’s an entire Article in the new religious regulations about schools, thought I missed something in the new law. But I didn’t.  

so that no one could vote unless he had the mark

So that no one could vote unless he had the mark

The title may sound familiar – so that no one could vote unless he had the mark – and yet also sound not quite right. Rev 13:17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. Because it’s real. It’s happening.
