It’s the Object of Worship – not the sincerity of worship that must be first and foremost

I have heard this all too familiar “objection” throughout my Christian life, stated in various forms and fashions. It is the familiar:

“There are many religions – what makes you so confident that you have a ‘hotline’ to God?”

In the online town talk forum I had answered a posting about profaning God’s Name. Another person took exception and offered a cutting and sarcastic comment - [Paraphrase]: “I find it remarkable that you know what God is thinking and feeling. I stand in awe of you.” And, so I seriously answered that person, that I considered myself one of “God’s children” and, being, that I read God’s Scriptural Revelation, I do recognize the Good Lord’s intentions. I also pointed out the following Scriptures:

"But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." 1 Corinthians 6:17

“The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him and He will show him His covenant.” Psalm 25:14

I concluded that I thought some people begrudge Christians such as I, the privilege to express our faith and confidence in the Good Lord.

People are too ready to grant equal status to all religions because each religion has its sincere worshippers


In my daily Scripture readings I was again impressed with Christ’s words to the Samaritan woman at the town’s well. [Gospel of John 4:4-30] Christ’s Words to her were very revealing about her personal life. She readily, recognized him as a prophet. But more revealing, was Christ’s statement of worship:

"……But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth……" John 4:23-24


Christ not only makes it clear that God is not a graven image of some sort to be worshipped, but that “God is a Spirit,” and that He must be worshipped, “in spirit,” and, “in truth.” But even before Christ mentions the “quality” of worship that it be done, - "in, truth,” Christ makes the most revealing statement:

"You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews." John 4:22


So, here we have it, Jesus Christ Himself, unabashedly states, that “salvation” [true religion that delivers {“saves”} one’s eternal and priceless soul, comes from “the Jews.”] As one commentator put it:

Salvation is from the Jews. Salvation seems here to mean the Savior, the Messiah, as it does Luke 2:30 ; Acts 4:12: and so the woman appears to have understood it, John 4:25. The Messiah was to spring from the Jews - from them, the preaching of the Gospel, and the knowledge of the truth, were to go to all the nations of the world. It was to the Jews that the promises were made; and it was in their prophetic Scriptures, which the Samaritans rejected, that Jesus Christ was proclaimed and described. See Isaiah 11:3. [Clarke]
In the Gospel account of Jesus’ conversation with the “woman at the well,” as related above, [John 4:1f], Christ never questions the woman’s religious sincerity or earnestness. He never questions it, because sincerity and earnestness are not the first and foremost issues at stake involving genuine worship of the true God!

Don’t trifle with your present, priceless and eternal soul Luke 16:19-31


I know that it is culturally fashionable to be accepting and approving of all forms of religious worship. The “power of positive thinking” mentality, the influence of mega churches and herding group pressure is so easily accepted, when there is the push to be multicultural and politically correct. But that is not the way of Christ, or, His follower disciples.

Christ did not come to be born into human flesh, to live, die and to be sacrificed for humanity’s sin – and, then to be resurrected, in order to win humanity’s approval and popularity contests. [Nor, does He expect His followers to seek for the same cultural approbation]

Christ came to “seek and to save that which was lost.” [Gospel of Luke 19:10] And, that includes you and I. If you are a “holier than thou” personality, then Christ is not for you. Even Christ stated such:

…..they that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick……..for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Gospel of Matthew 9:9-10


If you think that you are a good person and that your sins do not offend God and are not damnable violations [worthy of hell] against His Ten Commandments, then, stay as far away from the Hebrew (Jewish) and Christian Scriptures as possible. If you don’t think that your sins offend God and that you are better than most people, don’t seek help when you fall flat on your face.

But, if, by God's Grace, you can humble yourself and admit that you are a sinner, and believe in Christ, like the tax collector in the parable which Christ told, – if you can contritely exclaim with all shame, [“God, be merciful to me, a sinner,” Gospel of Luke 18:14] -- then, there is present and everlasting hope for you.


This hope is not in a particular place of worship. Nor, is this hope found in a particular “fever pitch” of emotion or sincerity. This present and eternal hope can only be found in the person of Christ Jesus, who is the living God, who sacrificed Himself for you and your sins and who was raised from the dead for your present and eternal peace with a Holy Creator, Father God.

May God grant you the reader and the hearer of this message that you come to faith in Christ. May you expose yourself to His means to bring you to faith! Romans 1:16 ; Romans 10:17; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 ; 1 Peter 1:23

Amen.

“A Father of the fatherless” - Psalm 68:5-6

Please note:

This following short topical (sermon) message only applies to Christians, as those who are believers, automatically possess the Triune God, as their Heavenly Father. Consequently, those who are "unregenerate" and, unbelieving, are "children of wrath" [Ephesians 2:1-10] As the Scripture says: ".....God is angry with the wicked every day." [Psalm 7:11] See also, Psalm 9:17. Please access the following message for further understanding:


This year (again), “Father’s Day” will be celebrated in US Christian churches. Preached from pulpits will be familiar and similar messages about the Scriptural and societal importance of fathers to their families. However, few sermon messages will [ever] focus on how the Triune God is father to those believing souls who never experienced any temporal (earthly) father’s physical presence and love, or to those whose fatherly presence and influence was abruptly cut short by either desertion, divorce or death.

The Old Testament Hebrew Scripture speaks of God as being "a father of the fatherless:"

“A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.” Psalm 68:5

But even when Christian believers who are fatherless are not befriended and loved by Christian believers, the God who uttered this Biblical promise will fulfill it to his believing children. Those fatherless disciples of Christ, who believe God’s promises, will reap His spiritual presence and help – and also, benefit with temporal (earthly) blessings. God does not lie. His promises are “gold” to those who believe! When God says that He will be a “father of the fatherless,” He intends to take the place of one’s earthly father and protect His own dear children.

[Please take note of the Scriptural references following this short topical message].


This Christian emeritus pastor has witnessed (in his lifetime) the fulfilled promise of God when He says:

“God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity…….” Psalm 68:6

Allow me to give you a “for instance.” Many of those who have lost their fathers at an early age (or, before they were even born) are blest to know and experience the love and care of their grandfathers. Those (of those fatherless circumstances) who marry, come into families where they receive many blessings, among whom are, fathers-in-laws.

Certainly, nothing can diminish the ("almost") devestating emotional feelings of loss which a child [son or daughter] experiences, knowing that he (or she) will never know and experience the love and parental care of a deceased father. But, as our Heavenly Father, the Lord will not abandon His believing children. He notes their tears of sorrow [Psalm 56:8] and He continues to be the all (even more) important, heavenly (spiritual)father, of which relationship, is the most cherished relationship that a person can ever experience.

To those of you children of God, who are fatherless, – those of you who have experienced the recent or past loss of their young or elderly fathers – do not curse, but count your blessings! Cherish the precious and priceless experience of being the Heavenly Father’s own dear child. And, practice what the Scripture states:

“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Know that for a physical and spiritual reality, your Heavenly Father will not abandon you:

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

"He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" Romans 8:32

Note also: Romans 4:7-8 ; Romans 5:1 ; Romans 4:7-8 ; Philippians 3:8-9

Amen.

What God ordains is always good.
He is my Friend and Father;
He suffers naught to do me harm,
Though many storms may gather.
Now I may know Both joy and woe,
Some day I shall see clearly
That He hath loved me dearly.

The President of the United States: A Sex Offender? - Why Obama's support of the abortion industry is the worst molestation of youth

When we think outside the political correctness 
box, it can be understood why the 
White House occupier, Barack Hussein 
Obama,  is a big time sex offender.   Please 
continue to read this topical message  to
 aid you in understanding why.
Note: The following message (with added pics, captions, internal links and minor editing) was previously posted online by Pastor emeritus Nathan Bickel

Earlier this month the television networks and the Internet gave free time for a sex offender to address the nation’s school aged youth -- and, many schools encouraged their students to give their rapt attention to the Sex Offender-in-Chief.

A sex offender in our US culture is generally considered to be on who inappropriately touches (without consent – or, even, with, consent) a minor. Or, a sex offender is a person who inappropriately touches (at the very minimum) another adult, without the other person’s consent.
This “touching ‘aspect'” of a sex offender is considered to be the most minimum criminal violation. The greater (in degree) violation is to perpetrate sexual contact with a non consenting individual -- that, namely, being, sexual penetration.

Applying the definition of a sex offender to those who hide their (genocide) crimes against humanity by “serving” in political office:

What greater sexual offense can there be against individuals than the destruction of their sexual identity from the very beginnings of their innocent lives, by the total destruction and elimination of those very lives? Yet, umpteen politicians continue to function as sex offender predators, committing the most egregious and heinous of sex crimes – that being the total annihilation of their victims. Sexual molestations are committed by virtue of individual sexual identities being totally eliminated from present and future populations vis-a-vis the abortion industry process.

What did Senator Kennedy have in common with President Obama and the late Abortionist, George Tiller? -- thechristianmessage.org

President Barack Obama’s Pro-Abortion Record: A Pro-Life Compilation - lifenews.com


From the beginning, the command, from the Triune God, was that His human creation, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” [Genesis 1:28] By destroying the most innocent of human life, within the womb, President Obama and countless American politicians [along with a host of other people] have been responsible for the human deaths of present populations and future generations. This particular crime against humanity is not only death to the defenseless, but also, genocide, and future (would-be) generations of those "eliminated" from the human race. Please note:

The Present and Future Devastation Consequence of Abortion Genocide - thechristianmessage.org/2011/05/

Please also note: 

Population control – carried on, by death to the defenseless and their [would be] offspring [posterity]:







“What Does God See and Hear?” -- “…….Millions of babies are aborted every day. It is this culture's way of eradicating the image of the Triune God in which the human race was created. Genesis 1:26 Doctors, nurses, and professionals may refer to a newly formed baby as blastocyst, an embryo or a fetus, but the bottom line is the little one is a triune human being with a body, a soul, and a spirit. The pre-born baby allowed to reach adulthood has the potential to bring forth more generations. Psalm102:18 When an apple is cut open the seeds are able to be counted. But, only God can tell how many apples are in one seed. God knows the generations which should have been produced by every aborted baby. They are all written in His book. Psalm 139:16 …….” -- Source: “Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength," 5/15/09 -- mycalvaryslove.com

“One Quarter of Black Population Missing from Abortion Genocide Says Dr. Alveda King” -- …. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of legendary human rights campaigner, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., told a meeting of Priests for Life, that the killing of a quarter of the black population of the US has not been from the lynch mobs of her childhood days, but from abortionists, “who plant their killing centers in minority neighborhoods and prey upon women who think they have no hope. “The great irony,” she said, “is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.” …..” - lifesitenews.com


Someone who supports Infanticide is no longer a
man, but a monster.
Crimes against humanity and stark disobedience to the Triune God and His Commandments, realize no boundaries:

Perhaps, some of you, who have ventured to read and / hear this topical message are shocked that this website author and emeritus Christian pastor, would write such [the aforementioned]. You may be thinking to yourself: “My, what brazen recklessness, to accuse the President of the United States of child molestation -- of being a sex offender!” But I humbly submit that that type of mentality is restrictive and that you've corralled your thinking, inside a particular, politically correct, "box." Here, is a "for instance:"

Hate mongering is usually only considered to what a person says; not what he does. That, is thinking within the "political correctness" box. Please take note of the Conservapedia.com article [link] below:

Hate-monger -- "A Hate-monger can also be a person who does not voice hate speech. A hate-monger can also be defined by a person’s “hateful” actions" -- conservapedia.com

Consequently, I submit that our USA President is “Chief Sex Offender,” by virtue of him holding the highest political office in the nation. His past and present record in support of unrestricted, unnecessary, abortions, partial birth abortions and even infanticide (of those babies, surviving abortions), automatically, (sadly and pathetically) make him not only responsible, but accountable for multiple crimes against humanity and their (would be) posterity. Please note: The Present and Future Devastation Consequence of Abortion Genocide - thechristianmessage.org/2011/05/

Also:


Since April, 114 Children Have Died from H1N1 -- but 700,000 Have Died from Abortion --"......an estimated 2,247 to 3,305 babies lose their lives to abortion each day, based on statistics compiled by both the CDC and the Guttmacher Institute, a private research foundation tied to the abortion industry....." -- cnsnews.com 

Unscrupulous politicians support abortion genocide. That
genocide especially targets the black population.
Politicians vote for taxpayers' monies to fund "Planned
Parenthood," the chief major entity which carries out
the destruction of preborn life. That life is (thus) cut
off before it can come to its completeness and enjoy
"life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" outside the
mother's womb. That life is therefore prevented from
reproducing more life. Abortion genocide is a type of
malevolent population control.


If you accept the scientific and medical reality that the pre-born are definitely human and are to be protected by our nation's founding intent as spelled out in the Declaration of Independence, that "all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these being, life; liberty and the pursuit of happiness," -- then you will swiftly realize the web of people who are presently involved in this multi-million baby slaughter. Since the ill conceived despicable 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision, it has been estimated that by American abortion, some 50 million human beings have been removed [killed] -- not counting the many more millions upon millions offspring [posterity] that would have been born, had not their [would-be] parents been slaughtered.

In short,
because of President Obama's involvement with the USA abortion industry -- by virtue of his high office, he is Abortion-in-Chief. It follows that he also is, Hatemonger-in-Chief, Genocide-in-Chief, which makes him, "Sex Offender-in-Chief."

Abortion Genocide -- "Abortion is the genocide of the pre-born one by one" -- "Abortion genocide is also the population decimation of future generations" -- conservapedia.com


The Triune God is a God of Mercy and Forgiveness:

Since this emeritus Christian pastor has run short of time today, he cannot and does not wish in this topical message to elaborate upon the grace of God. Other past topical messages have noted such. Suffice to say that the wanton and needless action of securing an abortion, cutting short the full and complete life of a human being, is, simply murder. When the good Lord says in the Ten Commandments, “Thou shall not murder,” the sin of determined, wanton and needless abortion is not exempt from that command. Exodus 20:13

“Sin” in a holy and just God’s estimation, excludes a person's soul from the life hereafter in heaven’s perfect abode. Those who die in their sins without having the forgiveness of the shed blood of Christ are destined to spend their forever soul’s existence, not in heaven’s “life eternal” but in hell's “death’s eternal.” Luke 16:19-31 ; John 3:14-21 and John 3:36

May all who desire to live a life of good conscience and a life pleasing to God apart from their sinful nature and their daily sins, seek Him by way of the written revelation He has provided. [2 Timothy 3:14-17] May you come to know the living God and Christ who can set you free from
sin bondage and make your soul ready for a future eternity of “life” everlasting, rather than “death” everlasting. Matthew 7:13-29 ; John 1:1-18 ; John 10:1-30 ; Luke 16:19-31 


May you who have no faith in God Almighty be granted that faith to believe instead of rejecting Him, the only lifeline you have to prevent you from a hereafter reality of perdition. May you seek Him in His written revelation book, the Scriptures. That divine revelation is the Triune God's gift to you; His instrument to bring you to saving faith. Romans 1:16 ; Romans 10:17 ; Acts 8:26-39 ; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ; James 1:18

Amen.

Children in the womb were protected and mothers were given the special treatment that they deserved. The insane fabrication of the abortion movement, that the child is an extension of the woman’s own body, has met more than its rhetorical match. It has run headfirst into medical science. For example, research has proven that the child secretes hormone mixtures, found in the placenta, in order to protect its position in the first home and to secure itself within the womb against the immune system of the mother which is made to fight against “foreign” substances. The child is no “foreign substance” but rather a member of the family......

What did Senator Kennedy have in common with President Obama and the late Abortionist, George Tiller?

Pic of the late Senator, Teddy
Kennedy; perhaps one of the
most infamous of US politicians.
He portrayed himself as a
respectable Catholic Christian,
but was a vile person. His highly
regarded and favored politics by
liberals and leftists were marked
with not only a pummeling abuse
of politics, but a massive support
for United States genocide.
It is often understood that “hate” is a detestable attitude / emotion that manifests itself in human [hate] speech. When people hear hate speech they readily label someone a “hatemonger.” The common universal school of thought is to qualify a hatemonger by what he says – not by what he does.

A hatemonger can also be a person who does not voice hate speech

A hatemonger can also be a person who does not voice hate speech but whose lifestyle actions clearly identify him or her as a person who promulgates the destructive forces of hate. One does not have to look far (back) into history to identify hate mongers. Hitler readily comes to mind. Former Communist leaders such as Lenin, Stalin and Mao, vented their hate by murdering millions upon millions of their own peoples. Pol Pot, Idi Amin were more modern hate mongers, who left a trail of blood as evidence of their bigotry of hate against those who stood in opposition to their political paths.

The Divine Revelation (Christian Scripture) definition of a Hatemonger

"Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him." 1 John 3:15

....If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?.... 1 John 4:20

President Obama is a Hatemonger

US White House usurper Obama, is a vile and
despicable person. Like Sen. Teddy Kennedy he
attracts the admiration of many duped US
voters who gave him the opportunity to wreak
his malevolent agenda upon America. Obama
continues to paint himself as a decent person
with his recent remarks over the latest US
school children shooting massacre; yet
he has no genuine love for his fellow human
beings. The Scripture says of life-style
deceivers, such as Obama, that their eternal
doom will be the lake of fire - eternal damnation.
It is common knowledge, Mr. Obama’s past Illinois Senate record regarding his position and voting for unrestricted and partial birth abortion. In addition to his inhumane position on abortion he took a grotesque position in favor of allowing those babies surviving abortion to be left alone and die. I ask: “What could be more egregious, hideous and monstrous than that?”

Mr. Obama’s position is publicly known:

President Barack Obama’s Pro-Abortion Record: A Pro-Life Compilation - lifenews.com/

"Hate-monger" - http://conservapedia.com/Hate-monger

Not only is Obama a hatemonger, he qualifies for “Racist-in-Chief,” as he actively supports the wholesale slaughter of black babies:

“One Quarter of Black Population Missing from Abortion Genocide Says Dr. Alveda King” -- lifesitenews.com

Mr. Obama, by his position and policies, believes and lives contrary to what Divine Revelation states about loving his fellowman. [1 John 3:15 ; 1 John 4:20] How can a person love his fellow human beings, when he actively strives to stamp out their existence from their beginning conception? In short, Mr. Obama is not a man, but a monster:





What did Senator Kennedy have in common with Barack Obama and the late George Tiller?

Pic of Eunice (Kennedy) Shriver. Unlike her
brother, Senator Ted Kennedy; Eunice was a
prolife advocate; also involving herself in the
Special Olympics. How can one sibling from the
same Kennedy family turn out to be an angel,
while her one brother turns out to be a devil?
Senator Kennedy involved himself in the abortion (mill) business. At one time during his political career, he was prolife. It is an utter shame that Teddy Kennedy did not remain prolife, as his sister, Eunice [Kennedy] Shriver who was not only a leader in the prolife movement, but "influential in creating the first International Special Olympics for athletes with intellectual disabilities." [Conservapedia.com]

Unfortunately and most tragically, Senator Kennedy soon left his prolife moorings and became an avid supporter of unrestricted abortion in the name of the Supreme Court contrived [supposed "Right to privacy"] He, along with Obama, involved himself on one end of the abortion multi-million dollar assembly line industry –- through the legislative process. They were responsible, along with other politicians, providing, human bodies -- innocent preborn babies for their destructive and murderous [Nazi like] disposal, at the bloody hands of abortionists, such as the late abortionist, George Tiller. During Kennedy's tenure in the United States Senate, millions of preborn babies met their horrific end.

Two of the above (aforementioned persons) are no longer with us. Senator Kennedy recently passed away, a victim of cancer, while Abortionist George Tiller met his sudden end, slain by a gunman. But President Obama remains, functioning as “Butcher-in-Chief,” promulgating political policy for the continued genocide of preborn babies and consequently their posterity (succeeding generations):

“One Quarter of Black Population Missing from Abortion Genocide Says Dr. Alveda King” -- …. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of legendary human rights campaigner, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., told a meeting of Priests for Life, that the killing of a quarter of the black population of the US has not been from the lynch mobs of her childhood days, but from abortionists, “who plant their killing centers in minority neighborhoods and prey upon women who think they have no hope. “The great irony,” she said, “is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.” …..” - lifesitenews.com

“What Does God See and Hear?” -- “…….Millions of babies are aborted every day. It is this culture's way of eradicating the image of the Triune God in which the human race was created. Genesis 1:26 Doctors, nurses, and professionals may refer to a newly formed baby as blastocyst, an embryo or a fetus, but the bottom line is the little one is a triune human being with a body, a soul, and a spirit. The pre-born baby allowed to reach adulthood has the potential to bring forth more generations. Psalm102:18 When an apple is cut open the seeds are able to be counted. But, only God can tell how many apples are in one seed. God knows the generations which should have been produced by every aborted baby. They are all written in His book. Psalm 139:16 …….” -- [Source: “Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength," 5/15/09 -- mycalvaryslove.com]

A Ted Kennedy Legacy - A Particular View - Perspective -- Apart from all the Camelot Accolades

Divine Revelation states that a “partner with a thief, hates his own soul:”

"Whoso is sharing with a thief is hating his own soul" -- Proverbs 29:24

Abortionist Tiller was killed
by an assassin. Compared with
all the preborn babies he
sliced and diced; his death
was rather quick and painless.
Will there be a separate
place for him in the hereafter?
Or, will he be lumped with the
likes of Ted Kennedy who was
politically (up front) supplying
Tiller with the baby bodies to
exterminate.
A person doesn’t’ need to be aware that he hates his own soul. As I mentioned earlier, hate is more than an attitude and an emotion. It can also be a (practice) action and lifestyle.

Abortionist George Tiller was a hideous and repulsive thief – cutting short the innocent lives of hundreds upon hundreds of preborn babies. Senator Kennedy and Barack Obama (as explained previous) were partners with this hideous and repulsive (Tiller) thief and other abortion thieves.

What greater thievery than to steal an innocent person’s life, by painfully and abruptly ending it? And, don’t say that a preborn baby is just a mass of human cells by calling “it” a “fetus" -- and that his or her forming human life does not feel and experience pain. Medical technology and scientific reality tell us that the fetus baby, does indeed, experience pain. It has now been (scientifically and medically) long established (since the infamous Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision), legalizing abortion on demand, that the human product of conception, is human life, fully deserving of the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” as stated in our nation's esteemed founding, document, "The Declaration of Independence."


Pic of the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson. He
was highly influential in helping to usher
in the infamous 1973 Supreme Court
decision which led to US unrestricted
abortion and genocide. Dr. Nathanson
became a convert to Christianity and
demonstrated his faith with a complete
reversal of character, becoming an avid
prolife advocate. Please note the
following article by Lifesitenews.com 
The Supreme Court decision which sanctions abortion genocide, desperately needs to be reversed. It is a Neanderthal legal ruling, ignoring the latest advances in science and medical technology of this new Century:

Former Abortionist Bernard Nathanson Exposes Lies of American Pro-Abortion Movement -- "We were guilty of massive deception" says Nathanson about abortion industry -- Nathanson's conversion to the pro-life movement was sparked by the advent of the ultrasound machine in the early 1970s. He related how his heart was moved to realize that a fetus is in fact a human being after he watched an unborn baby recoil from a vacuum abortion device before being sucked from its mother's womb……. Nathanson then addressed the fact that abortion is now used as a form of birth control - a result of another pro-abortion fabrication….. – lifesitenews.com

It is common knowledge with those who respect and revere Divine Revelation (as extrapolated by the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures) that our country’s abortion on demand policy and practice, is insane and inhumane. As a nation based upon the Judeo / Christian ethic we cannot expect our country to be immune to the Triune God’s just judgment for this horrendous national sin. The Lord hates "hands that shed innocent blood." [Proverbs 6:17] America will not escape the Lord’s judgment. Psalm 9:17

The Triune God is a God of Mercy and Forgiveness:

Since this emeritus Christian pastor has run short of time today, he cannot and does not wish in this topical message to elaborate upon the grace of God. Other past topical messages have noted such. Suffice to say that the wanton and needless action of securing an abortion, cutting short the full and complete life of a human being, is, simply murder. When the good Lord says in the Ten Commandments, “Thou shall not murder,” the sin of determined, wanton and needless abortion is not exempt from that command. Exodus 20:13

“Sin” in a holy and just God’s estimation, excludes a person's soul from the life hereafter in heaven’s perfect abode. Those who die in their sins without having the forgiveness of the shed blood of Christ are destined to spend their forever soul’s existence, not in heaven’s “life eternal” but in hell's “death’s eternal.” Luke 16:19-31 ; John 3:14-21 ; John 3:36

May all who desire to live a life of good conscience and a life pleasing to God apart from their sinful nature and their daily sins, seek Him by way of the written revelation He has provided. [2 Timothy 3:14-17] May God grant you the grace to come to believe in Him through that same Scripture revelation. [Romans 1:16 ; Romans 10:17 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 ; Acts 8:26-39 ; James 1:18] May you come to know the living God and Christ who can set you free from sin bondage and make your soul ready for a future eternity of “life” everlasting, rather than “death” everlasting. Matthew 7:13-29 ; John 1:1-18 ; John 10:1-30 ; Luke 16:19-31

And, finally, you who are comfortable with only gathering with other church people; may the good Lord light a fire in your soul to oppose the godless culture! May you live your professed Christian faith and engage the sinful culture; rather than be squeezed into its mold! [Romans 12:1-2]

Amen.

Baby’s First Picture -- ......The science called “fetology”, the study of children in the womb, clearly confirms the facts. Through the sonogram, we are given a window into the first home of children. And, we are reminded, that every one of us lived in that same home. It was once the safest place on earth and universally recognized as a sanctuary. It was also held in great awe and respect. Children in the womb were protected and mothers were given the special treatment that they deserved. The insane fabrication of the abortion movement, that the child is an extension of the woman’s own body, has met more than its rhetorical match. It has run headfirst into medical science. For example, research has proven that the child secretes hormone mixtures, found in the placenta, in order to protect its position in the first home and to secure itself within the womb against the immune system of the mother which is made to fight against “foreign” substances. The child is no “foreign substance” but rather a member of the family......
