Christianity Continues to be Under Attack

Chuck Colson's Prison Fellowship Ministries has been booted out of an Iowa correctional facility and ordered to repay the state $1.5 million for showing favoritism towards prisoners participating in the program. The Prison Fellowship website's mission statement says:
Our goal is for prisoners to become born again and grow as fruitful disciples of Jesus Christ. We work directly with prison chaplains ... We recruit and train volunteers that lead regular Bible Studies, Seminars and Special Events. Volunteers are formed into Ministry Delivery Teams that work closely with the chaplain and local churches to help the prisoner move through a continuum of discipleship that begins on the inside and continues to a successful transition back into society as a faithful servant of Christ.


Meanwhile, this week in Texas,your and my tax dollars paid for Secret Service agents to confiscate....ready for this... Gospel tracts! Yes, these brave men were able to seize some 8000 plus gospel tracts from Ray Comfort's The Great News Network. Seems some moron tried to deposit a $1,000,000 bill gospel tract into her account and this started an investigation into this alleged "counterfeit operation". I've been using this type of tract for years. On the front, it looks similar to real money, but on the back is a presentation of the Gospel. There's no such thing as a million-dollar bill, so what law has been broken?

And in Alabama, a church is being threatened for Biblically disciplining two of its members. Seems both members were in leadership positions in the church and started co-habitating without benefit of Holy Matrimony. The Bible clearly states that churches are to administer discipline to its members, with the ultimate goal of reconciling them back into the fellowship. Members know that up front when they join. Besides that, these two should be less worried about church discipline and more concerned about receiving chastisement from above!

Because of the ever-increasing attack upon Christians and their rights, I pray that we'll see an increase in the number of young people who decide to go into Law. Institutions like the Christian Law Association, the Liberty Counsel , the American Center for Law and Justice and others may very well be the only way for us to fight back - in the courtroom. My hat's off to those of you (Angela) who have decided to go that route and make a difference for our faith!
