Serving the Chosen One

I keep my sanity during the years to come as the liberal do-gooders and hollywood types have their tingly-touchy-feely attacks while they "serve" their president.

So where were these people when previous administrations were in power? Why haven't they been doing these things all along? Have they been "saved" by their "messiah" (Obama) and been "born again". Last time I checked, it was the President who served the people of this nation - not the other way around.

Why no pledges to abort as many children as possible?
Why no pledges to welcome terrorists with open arms?
Why no pledges to further deteriorate the sanctity of marriage?
Why no pledges to give all their money away to the poor?
Why no pledges to try to further weaken our military?

But by golly, they're gonna save the planet now. Now that the Chosen One is in charge.

Scary stuff it is.

Obama : "Give him a Chance!"

"Give him a chance"
"Wish him well"
"Hope he succeeds"

I’ve heard the above phrases a lot since the inauguration.

The problem is that as a Christian, I can do none of these things. In fact, I’m commanded not to do these things.

Scripture is clear that we are not to condone or encourage evil or evildoers.

Scripture is my guide. Not political correctness.

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: II John 1:10

For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. II John 1:11

He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD. Proverbs 17:15

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20

They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them. Proverbs 28:4

Obama’s plan to increase the number of babies slaughtered, along with his plans to further legitimize homosexuality as a normal and acceptable lifestyle, and his promotion of socialism are not things on which I can wish him well nor hope that he succeeds.

He puts terrorists' “rights” above the safety of the citizens of this country.
He puts convenience for women above the sanctity of the lives of the unborn.
He puts the demands of the immoral above the beliefs of the majority.

I pray he fails.
I pray he is unsuccessful.
I pray his agenda is stopped.

Having said all that, I also pray for his safety, as well as for the safety of his family, and I pray that God will change his heart and save his soul.

Christianity and Unrepentant Homosexuality

I went to this website after seeing the church mentioned by someone who is a “liberal Christian” (note: see Webster’s online dictionary for the word “oxymoron”)

The page I linked to is the “What We Believe” page for the “Cathedral of Hope”.

Normally, on a Christian church website there is a “what we believe” page. This is the page that gives an idea to the reader of where the church stands doctrinally on the basics of the Christian faith.

There was notably no mention on the entire page of this webpage the words “sin”, or “repentance”, or why anyone is in need of a Savior.

As I wrote in an earlier post – without sin, there is no need of a Savior. Cathedral of Hope obviously doesn’t see much need for a Savior. Which directly contradicts the whole point of the Bible.

I mention this not just for the sake of criticism, but to point out that everyone who claims to be a Christian is not necessarily so. This must be very confusing to non-Christians.

Here are some things that they DO say at the Cathedral of Hope website:

To redefine Christianity as an including faith rather than an excluding religion.

…many of us in the church grew up singing old hymns like “Rise Up O Men of God”, “Dear Lord and Father of Mankind”, “Faith of Our Fathers” and others.
These were the hymns of our spirituality and of our childhood. The problem is that they are no more appropriate for us today than are the racist chants of the Ku Klux Klan or the homophobic rhetoric of the Moral Majority.

The Mission of the Cathedral of Hope is to reclaim Christianity as a faith of extravagant grace,radical inclusion and relentless compassion.

The whole point of their redefining Christianity, and their radical inclusion as they call it, is to embrace and condone homosexuality as acceptable within the Christian religion.

They can call themselves a church, but they are not a Christian church.

I’ve heard those in favor of homosexual marriage, when confronted with the passages that clearly say homosexuality is an abomination, say one or two passages of Scripture do not support the belief that homosexuality is wrong.
They imply that because there are so few passages on the subject, we can’t judge homosexuality to be sinful.

However, when hundreds of passages say that a Husband is male and a Wife is female, they shake their heads and refuse to listen.

A word search of Scripture on these key words:

Husband 108 times
Bridegroom 20 times
Wife 370 times
Bride 14 times

In none of these instances, is the Husband anything other male.

In none of these instances, is the Wife anything other than female.

They refuse to listen to a few passages.
Then they turn around and refuse to listen to hundreds of passages.

They refuse, because they are in rebellion.

They refuse, because they want to do what they think is right.

Think and believe what they will - they cannot justify it with Scripture. The only legitimate argument they have is if they say they disagree with Scripture - or disagree with God.

Genesis 2:24: Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh. (does NOT say, therefore shall a man leave his dad and his dad, and cleave to his boyfriend, and the two shall be one flesh.)

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. (does NOT say that the head of the woman is another woman)

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. (does NOT say for the husband is the head of his husband)

They refuse to listen to a few passages.
Then they turn around and refuse to listen to hundreds of passages.

They refuse, because they are in rebellion. They refuse, because they want to do what they think is right.
And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:” Numbers 15:39

Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.” Deuteronomy 12:8

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” Proverbs 3:7

Again, this has to be confusing to non-Christians. But then we know who the author of confusion is and is not.

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. I Corinthians 14:33

In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Psalm 71:1

God's Creations Under the Sea

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own little existence that we forget to look around at the wonders of this earth that God has made for us. He is truly an amazing and awesome God, and His creations are something to behold.
