Turkey Prime Minister Says Women Should Not Laugh In Public

"A minister in Recep Tayyip Erdogan's conservative government has outraged Turkey's secular community by claiming that honest women should not laugh in public."

~International Business Times

Even "pro-Western" Turkey is still Muslim at the end of the day. This is just an example of why there can't be any true Western, Democratic Muslim country. If they are Muslim, Islam ends up dictating the country's culture and laws. When it comes down to it, their loyalty is to Allah and Islam.

How Ryan T. Anderson Responded to a Gay Man Who Wants to Redefine Marriage


Interestingly, the man who asked the question wasn't able to see what Anderson was trying to get at which is the man's foundational argumentation behind his question--his presupposition. I  think it was because sodomites and their defenders are unable to think reasonably. Their narrow focus doesn't allow them to think reasonably through their claim, their presupposition, their worldview, and the consequences of their worldview. It is merely an irrational and emotional stance build upon a hardened heart of unbelief (Romans 1, Jude). Anderson was quite patient and reasonable.

Consider The Facts

This fun, informative, animated short explains two irrefutable scientific facts that make evolution unscientific.

160 Children Killed As They Dug Tunnels for Hamas

Hamas used children to help them dig numerous tunnels into Israel and Egypt, a 2012 paper written for the Journal of Palestine Studies reported.
The paper, titled Gaza's Tunnel Phenomenon: The Unintended Dynamics of Israel's Siege says that little had been done to stop the phenomenon of child labor during the digging of the tunnels by Hamas in Gaza.
He continued and said that "at least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials."
Since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge 21 days ago, IDF forces have uncovered 31 tunnels leading into Israel.

John Piper Promotes and Muslim Missionary Greg Livingstone and Anti-Christian Zionism

“Missionaries are getting a bit bland. I think I’ll combine a Jewish scholar with a feisty chorus-girl.”
The Tweet

Piper links to a book by Greg Livingstone, founder of Frontier.

The problem here is various.

Calling for a Jewish scholar when you link to a missionary to Muslims is quite odd.

First, the tweet is wholly impure. I don't care if Piper or Livingstone is trying to be witty or clever. It is impure.

Missionaries aren't called to excite, inflame, or appeal the flesh.

The Gospel cannot be proclaimed faithfully by a Jewish scholar nor a sensual chorus-girl.

Joking about true missions in such a way displays a lack of sober-mindedness toward God, Scripture, the Gospel, biblical missions, and the souls of men.

Furthermore, Livingstone is a pragmatist (trying the "plastic liner" methodology back in '82). The fact that he's alive and has written a book about "mssions" to Muslims tells me he didn't boldly tell them the Truth about Jesus Christ, the Gospel, their sin, Hell, the offense of Islam, their idolatry, their total depravity. Muslims will slaughter Christians or at least persecute them for preaching Christ crucified. Now while he does make a couple of good points, they are overshadowed in my opinion by these things below that I deal with.

The Author

Here is an interview with Livingstone, whom Piper promotes. The quotes are italicized by me and my comments follow.

First some background:

"Greg Livingstone is a difficult man to put in a box. He’s a critic of Christian Zionism, American nationalism, and he supports President Obama’s efforts to reach out to the Muslim world. He also happens to be the founder of Frontiers, the world’s largest missionary organization dedicated to church planting among Muslim peoples. Says Livingstone, “When you live outside America you come to realize how important it is to be a Christian first and American second.” He currently resides in London, where the Frontiers international office is located. I had a lengthy conversation with him the other day via Skype. Here’s the gist of what we talked about."

The Problems


Question: In recent years, there's been an increase in Muslims coming to Christ but remaining within the cultural fold of Islam. Some are calling this "the Insider Movement." What is your take on the Insider Movement and how should Christian missionaries respond to this movement?

Answer: Frontiers is getting hit on the left and the right with this. This is very current. My bottom line is we’ve got to be Bereans. It’s not a question of pragmatism, it’s a question of staying within Biblical parameters. What I like about the Insider movement is the movement’s proponents are people that love God convinced it’s not enough to see so few Muslims come to Christ. We’ve got to try something else. 

So he just acquiesced to pragmatism immediately after stating "it's not a question about pragmatism".

The road to eternal life is narrow and FEW that find it, Jesus stated in Matthew. Why man thinks he is the one to determine what is enough is beyond me. I find that very arrogant. It's about numbers and that's a superficial view. Instead, they should look to making each individual a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ of Scripture. True disciples, not masses of pharisees.

Marrying Islam to Christ (ie, Chrislam) or Submission to the Lord

Moreover, there is no such thing as a "cultural Muslim". That's a brand new, totally made up Western pragmatic jargon that has zero place in biblical Christianity. There is nothing cultural about Islam--its ways are determined by the quran and hadiths; its motivation is centered on the quaran and its "Allah" and Muhammad. In fact, Islam is historically "Muhammadanism".  One cannot adhere to the rules and rituals of Islam AND be a Christian. The 5 pillars of Islam, the worldview, the practices are all married to the demonic quran. One can no more be a "Muslim Christian" (which IS what this is about), anymore than one can be a Jewish Christian (see Galatians and Hebrews), a Mormon Christian, Roman Catholic Christian. In fact, we see how it is prohibited by God to copy the ways of the surrounding nations for Israel, and the society for Christians (Eph. 4-5 for example).

2Co 6:14  Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 
2Co 6:15  Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? 
2Co 6:16  Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, "I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 
2Co 6:17  "Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.

To make a convert but leave them in a satanic religion like Islam and its mosques is to NOT MAKE HIM A DISCIPLE of Jesus Christ! Moreover, it is to help them starve spiritually. In other words IF one truly gets saved OUT of Islam, one needs to then find a biblical church (they did it during the persecution in Acts, we can do it now) and be discipled by biblical Christians by teaching him biblical truth from Scripture and helping him live it out. This is true for any and all people who get saved OUT of Roman Catholicism and Judaism and Mormonism, etc. They are commanded to come OUT from those goat herds. Feeding and protection will not happen in the darkness. Moreover those who stay will be overcome by the darkness and not persuade the lost into Christ. That is not what we see in Scripture. Ever. We come OUT of the darkness, INTO the light, and then go and proclaim the Gospel.We don't LIVE in the dung, hoping to make the dung attractive and nourishing.

Paul says, “I’ve become all things to all men that I might win some.” So their motivation is good but as Tozer used to say: it’s not the lukewarm Christian that’s in danger of heresy, it’s the passionate Christian. I think the Emergent movement is influencing the Insider movement. Of course, you don’t win a Muslim to Christ by saying that Muhammad was a pedophile, but you’re not going to find your Joseph of Armethia, or Nicodemus if you don’t sit in the same room and find some commonality.

What did Tozer even mean? There is no true lukewarm Christian as they are rejected by Christ Jesus as being Him.

The fact is that Muhammad, upon whom Islam is built (and is rightly called Muhammadanism as they did for generations), was a pedophile. To ignore this is to ignore its unholiness. Just like Joseph Smith who was a polygamist and that he and the LDS were racist. While this isn't the primary nor necessary tool to use in reaching Muslims, it shouldn't be ignored either. Exposing the fruit of darkness is what Ephesians calls us to do. In contrast Jesus Christ is the sinless, perfect Messiah, the Son who took on human flesh and was without sin nor the ability to sin because of His eternal and unchanging nature of being God.

There is no commonality between Muslims and biblical Christians. None. Especially so when you are talking about Western biblical Christians. This is the heart of pragmatism, thinking and using what you think is a common bridge. Biblically we start with the Truth: God is the Triune Creator, man is wholly sinful and has earned God's righteous wrath, and there's non that is good nor does good--therefore one needs to be justified by God and must bow the need in humility before the biblical risen Lord Jesus Christ who is God over all.

Paul was not saying he would become all religions to all people. He was merely stating that He would not be a stumbling block to the Jew by say, eating or doing certain things that were previously commanded by God but now released (certain foods now declared "clean", eating with Gentiles, circumcision).

Obedience when it's convenient, pretence as evangelism

Still, the ‘jury is out’ on the Insider movement. There’s very little indication so far of congregations being established with godly biblically based elders by advocates of the Insider Movement. At some point, Muslims obeying the Lord Jesus are going to join the Rev. 6:9 club. A veteran missionary among Muslims has it right when he says, “Sure leave them in the Mosque; Encourage Muslim background believers to stay with and serve their families. But the vast majority will be banished if they actually share Christ as their LORD and SAVIOUR. 

The "Insider movement" doesn't need more time; it is anti-biblical. It tries to marry the world's religions with Christ and then call it "cultural". This is just as incomprehensible as "cultural Judaism". A true Christian doesn't just add "Jesus" to their cultural and religion. Furthermore, we don't obey Christ and separate ourselves from the world as 2 Cor. 6:14-18 demands "at some point" --which means "when I feel like it". We don't obey Christ when we "get around to it". This is why this is so dangerous and is not biblical Christianity nor evangelism. It's flat out pragmatism and trying to save a life instead of losing it for Christ. To stay in demonic Islam along with its demonic mosques is to deny Christ and play the harlot in order to save one's life. This didn't work for the Jews in the NT and it won't work now. When God saves a life, they MUST proclaim Him AND reject the false religion and worldview from which they came. They are not to hide and PRETEND. And this is what is so dishonest about the "Insider movement". It's deceiving, it's dishonest, it's underhanded, it's cowardly. And God says the cowardly will not enter Heaven (Rev.21:8). It is remaining a slave as well as not proclaiming freedom to those enslaved to Islam. Besides, mosques are a den of inquity, demonic doctrines, blasphemous, dark, and havens of terrorist recruitments. In addition to all that, as if that isn't enough, proclaiming the biblical crucified and resurrected Lord Jesus Christ  who is God the Son and is Creator (Muslims deny all of this about Jesus) will earn persecution at BEST by the family, and slaughter at worst. Moreover, being biblically baptized will do the same. This happened in the NT and it happens even in Italy! At least Livingstone acknowledges this below.

Mat 10:32  "Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. 
Mat 10:33  "But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven. 
Mat 10:34  "Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 
Mat 10:37  "He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 
Mat 10:38  "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 

2Co 4:2  but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 
2Co 4:3  And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
2Co 4:4  in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2Co 4:5  For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake. 
2Co 4:6  For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 
2Co 4:7  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; 

2Co 4:8  we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; 

As Grace To You says:

Scripture teaches that the gospel calls sinners to faith joined in oneness with repentance (Acts 2:38;17:30; 20:21; 2 Pet. 3:9). Repentance is a turning from sin (Acts 3:19; Luke 24:47) that consists not of a human work but of a divinely bestowed grace (Acts 11:18; 2 Tim. 2:25). It is a change of heart, but genuine repentance will effect a change of behavior as well (Luke 3:8; Acts 26:18-20). In contrast, easy-believism teaches that repentance is simply a synonym for faith and that no turning from sin is required for salvation.

Scripture teaches that Jesus is Lord of all, and the faith He demands involves unconditional surrender (Rom. 6:17-18; 10:9-10). In other words, Christ does not bestow eternal life on those whose hearts remain set against Him (James 4:6). Surrender to Jesus' lordship is not an addendum to the biblical terms of  salvation; the summons to submission is at the heart of the gospel invitation throughout Scripture. In contrast, easy-believism teaches that submission to Christ's supreme authority is not germane to the saving transaction.

As A.W. Pink stated :

"Saving faith is a genuine coming to Christ (Matt. 11:28;John 6:37, etc.). But let us take care that we do not miss the clear and inevitable implication of this term. If I say "I come to the U.S.A." then I necessarily indicate that I left some other country to get here. Thus it is in "coming" to Christ; something has to be left. Coming to Christ not only involves the abandoning of every false object of confidence, it also includes and entails the forsaking of all other competitors for my heart. "For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls (1 Peter 2:25)."

Ashamed of the name of Christ and Seeking the Muslim "Isa"

Another thing that Americans need to realize is that for a Muslim to become a Christian, is a traitorous act, equivalent to an American selling atomic secrets to the Iranians. That’s why I don’t mind if Muslim background believers don’t call themselves “Christians”. For 1,400 years, people that call themselves Christians and people that call themselves Muslims have been fighting, bashing, and killing each other. The word “Christian” may be as ruined by history as the word ‘gay’. The issue is to see Muslims passing from death to life, knowing “Isa Al Masih” as their Lord and Saviour.

It's a traitorous thing for a Roman Catholic to become a Chrisitan. It's a traitorous thing for a Jew to become a Christian. Muslims don't have some sort of corner on persecution. In fact, increasingly, it's becoming a traitorous act to be a BIBLICAL Christian in the West (we are labeled "extreme" and we are persecuted, shunned, ridiculed, mocked, blocked from promotions at work, severed from family, etc.). Peter said,

1Pe 4:16  but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name. 

Livingstone seems to think Roman Catholics are Christians, because it was the Catholics who were warring in the Crusades (against the Muslims), not biblical Christians. It was the RCC that slaughtered biblical Christians. But "Christian" is a biblical name for what we are. We are not to hide from who we are, nor be ashamed of HIS name. 

Furthermore, Isa isn't Christ Jesus. Isa is a MUSLIM PROPHET, not God the Son who was crucified on the Cross, who proved His deity, He demanded to be loved and worshiped and obeyed, who set Himself as equal to God the Father. Isa isn't a historical figure. To call Isa "Jesus Christ" is to blaspheme HIM. Let's remember that it is the quran that commands Muslims to slaughter the Jews and Christians. They don't call for the slaughter of a Muslim prophet called Isa though. Like the Jews, Muslims hate the biblical Jesus Christ who, when He took on flesh, was born of Jewish parents, but has eternally been God over all.


We are not called to respect that which is demonic in origin either. We cannot respect things that blaspheme the God of Scripture. Such a call, as made by Livingstone's  Frontier organization shows they are pragmatists and seek to honor man AS an enemy of Christ than the thrice Holy God of Israel, trusting in His sovereign hand to work within the biblical mandate. Moreover Frontiers promotes Roman Catholic's Liberation theology, aka Social Justice (something Rick Warren is big on). That is NOT the mission of the biblical church. OUR mission is to be built up within a local congregation that is made up of believers only, in order to grow and be equipped to go out and proclaim Christ.

We can respect people in that they are created in the image of God. We don't need to insult them on purpose. However, we aren't to adhere to Muslim rules as that is giving credence and subjecting ourselves and the HOLY Spirit within us, to that which is demonic. 

It isn't surprising that John Piper likes this guy. Piper claimed in 2012 in a tweet "Muslims, Jews, Christians! Allah and Adonai are only known and loved through the crucified and risen Christ. John 8:19; 5:42-43" (which I dissect at the link), which again displays either deliberate spiritual harolotry or absolute ignorance of Islam. He is also friends and promoter of heretic Rick Warren who also holds to the same view. Additionally, Piper holds to anti-Zionism.

Not the only one

Frontier and Livingston aren't the only pragmatic "missionaries". I knew a man who claimed to be a missionary to the Muslims in Bangladesh for 15 years. He told me that he felt the best way to reach the Muslims was by finding a common bridge (pragmatism). He has maintained that the Muslims "have God on some level" and that they "have a partially correct view of God." This is asinine. They do not "have God in the world", they reject the one triune God (if they don't have the Son they have neither the Father nor the Son, John says), and Allah is not Yahweh anymore than the Mormon god (once a mere man who attained to godhood), is the biblical God. This is Christianity 101 folks, and it was proclaimed by this "missionary" who has spent over a decade at a well known  "solid" seminary as a professor of OT here in S. California (not Fuller, not Talbot). In all that time, his best example of having a discussion with a Muslim was one that lasted merely 30 minutes, plus he lived to tell about it. The REALITY is that he didn't evangelize Muslims. He was there to translate Scripture into Bengali. He did not make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ from Muslims.

Border Flood: Transnational Ganges Using Juvenile Members From Central America To Recruit

        (photo source)

Members of some of the United States' most notorious street gangs have infiltrated shelters housing illegal immigrant minors from Central America and are recruiting them, say Homeland Security sources.

An estimated 57,000 minors from Central America have flooded across the border from Mexico to the U.S. in recent months, and gang leaders are reportedly filling their ranks from among them.

Transnational gangs such as the Mara Salvatruca, also known as MS-13, and the 18th Street gang are using established juvenile members from Central America to cross the border and recruit other children to the cartels, say sources.

Obama Lied: the surtax is in fact a tax as the new proposed IRS forms show

On Thursday the IRS released a slew of draft 2014 tax forms. The new draft Form 1040 shows a new surtax line has been created for the payment of the individual mandate surtax – see line 61 of the 1040:

President Obama has repeatedly denied that the surtax is in fact actually a tax. The most prominent example was a heated exchange on ABC’s This Week in Sept. 2009, when George Stephanopoulos confronted Obama with a dictionary:
STEPHANOPOULOS: I -- I don't think I'm making it up. Merriam Webster's Dictionary: Tax -- "a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes."

OBAMA: My critics say everything is a tax increase. My critics say that I'm taking over every sector of the economy. You know that.
Look, we can have a legitimate debate about whether or not we're going to have an individual mandate or not, but...
STEPHANOPOULOS: But you reject that it's a tax increase?
OBAMA: I absolutely reject that notion. [Transcript]

The Obamacare individual mandate non-compliance surtax is one of at least seven Obamacare taxes that violate the President’s “firm pledge” not to raise any tax on any American making less than $250,000 per year. Thorough documentation of Obama’s promise can be found here.

Proverbs For Today

Scripture is very practical. Here are a few verses from the Old Testament book, Proverbs. Considering our nation's corrupt leaders and the volatile protests we've been seeing (and will see), these really speak the Truth:

Pro 29:2 When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked man rules, people groan.
Pro 29:4 The king gives stability to the land by justice, But a man who takes bribes overthrows it.
Pro 29:8  Scorners set a city aflame, But wise men turn away anger. 
Pro 29:9  When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest. 
Pro 29:12 If a ruler pays attention to falsehood, All his ministers become wicked.
Pro 29:14 If a king judges the poor with truth, His throne will be established forever.

CSUN Sued By Scientist Who Found Soft Dinosaur Tissue

       (photo source)

Attorneys for a California State University, Northridge scientist who was terminated from his job after discovering soft tissue on a triceratops fossil have filed a lawsuit against the university.

While at the Hell Creek Formation excavation site in Montana, researcher Mark Armitage discovered what he believed to be the largest triceratops horn ever unearthed at the site, according to attorney Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute.
Upon examination of the horn under a high-powered microscope back at CSUN, Dacus says Armitage was “fascinated” to find soft tissue on the sample – a discovery Bacus said stunned members of the school’s biology department and even some students “because it indicates that dinosaurs roamed the earth only thousands of years in the past rather than going extinct 60 million years ago.”
Armitage’s findings were eventually published in July 2013 in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
End quote.

Mark Armitage has been a scientist for over 30 years. 
After the soft tissue was discovered, an administrator at CSUN told Armitage that they would not tolerate his religion in their department and was let go. The school claims lack of funding for the "temporary" position. However as I say, timing is always key, and this is NO exception. Just as Ben Stein, documented in "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" movie, credible, reasonable Christians who are scientists are black listed by bigoted and  agenda-driven evolutionists who won't tolerate evidence nor a different view other than their own religion of evolution, even when evidence proves them wrong. That's not science. That's an agenda and a bias. They should at least be honest they are working with presuppositions and a bias (everyone does). 

Winston Churchill On Muhammadanism

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”

~ The River War by Winston Churchill

Two things I'd like to note. First, Islam is a political religion, not merely a religion. Its very heart from Muhammad onward, was to take over every country it wants to control and it seeks to overthrow those governments (including that of the US, UK, France, etc) and replace it with Islam's  Sharia law, with imams etc. giving verdicts of punishment for breaking said laws.

Second, "Mohammedanism" is a truer label for this political religion. Remove Muhammad and you do not have Islam. It is centered very much on that man who married a nine year old girl and had multiple wives and became quite violent in his later years. One cannot sever Islam from its founder and to try to do so is to reshape it into an entirely different species altogether. Islam is married to Muhammad.

Pelosi: uses and twists the historical and biblical facts of Moses, Pharaoh, and Baby Jesus to justify Illegal Aliens flooding our borders

Pelosi reminded reporters that it was the National Conference of Catholic Bishops that used the baby Jesus analogy. She then suggested that if Moses hadn’t have been accepted by the Egyptians, then there wouldn’t be the Ten Commandments.
“You could even speak about, if it’s your tradition, Moses,” she said. “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh's family? We wouldn’t have the Ten Commandments for starters.”
You can't get more stupid than this. No wonder our nation is under God's judgment. A woman, a liberal, a mocker, a blasphemer, and an ignoramous. 
Her presumption is that of unbelief, casting the fact of Moses' life and the release of the Jewish slaves as happenstance and credit given to Pharoh (who ENSLAVED the Jews). 
Moreover, her presupposition that the Ten Commandments (again, God's Word being relegated to that of "tradition" instead of fact,o that she can easily disregard it since she, too, breaks those commandments), were ONLY the result of Pharoh's what? good kindness toward a baby he had no clue was a Jew (the Egyptians hated the Jews--her analogy is falling apart from the beginning), goes against the very HEART of the commandments given: God's eternality and nature. The commandments, unbeknownst to Pelosi, are a reflection of God's holy standard of Himself. None of these were "new" in that aspect: stealing, murdering, idolatry, disobeying parents, etc. were already known as sin. And by the way, these commandments (except for the Sabbath rest since that was completed and now found in Christ Jesus--HE is our sabbath rest),  are reiterated in the New Testament, thus affirming their timeless nature.
Also, the issue of Jesus fleeing to Egypt was a fulfillment of prophecy and has zero to do with politics. Herod wanted no competative king, and so he set out to find Jesus and murder Him. His earthly parents, Joseph and Mary, were told by God to escape to Egypt and they were there for a short time. This was for the protection of the infant (who never ceased to be God in the flesh even as a baby) as Satan and his minons wanted the Messiah dead in order to thwart the plan of God for Jesus Christ to be the atonement and Redeemer of His people (read Matt. 2).

It's Not A Joke: Federal New Law Cracks Down On Even Bake Sale Items

Barely a month after federal regulations for school cafeterias kicked in, states are already pushing back.
Specifically, they're fighting nutrition standards that would considerably alter one of the most sacred rituals of the American public school system: bake sales.
Twelve states have established their own policies to circumvent regulations in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that apply to "competitive snacks," or any foods and beverages sold to students on school grounds that are not part of the Agriculture Department's school meal programs, according to the National Association of State Boards of Education. Competitive snacks appear in vending machines, school stores, and food and beverages, including items sold at bake sales.
Behold your Marxist government schools.

Turkey's PM Says Israel Surpasses Hitler's Barbarianism and Terrorism

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan ridiculed Israel’s ground invasion of Gaza, accusing the Israeli government of “barbarism that surpasses Hitler.”
Speaking at a political re-election rally in the Turkish city of Ordu, Turkey’s prime minister said that Israel has “surpassed what Hitler did to them” and declared the country a “terrorist state.”

A TV host in Jordan burned a paper Israeli flag live on air

Describing the Israelis as "occupiers", Al-Azzeh apologised to viewers for earlier having shown them graphic images of injured Palestinians, and then said: "For the sake of Palestine and its children, allow me to burn this filthy flag of the Zionist entity for the whole world to see", before holding what appears to be an A4 paper print-off of the Israeli flag and setting light to it with a cigarette lighter.
It takes a while for the paper to burn, during which the host adds: "The world should know that the Zionists are our enemies. They are criminal murderers and we must fight them.
"We must demand that all Arab peoples expel them from their countries, starting with Jordan."

Shocking Commercial In Movie Theater Teaches A Good Lesson

How Is Our Judgment Formed?

"If our judgment be formed or our actions regulated by dreams, visions, or supposed immediate revelations from Heaven, rather than by the plain meaning of the Holy Scriptures, then we slight them and God may justly give us up to our own delusions. If we follow the fashion, imitate our fellows, or take public opinion for our standard, we are but heathen. But if the Word of God is the only source of our wisdom and guidance, we shall be found treading ”the paths of righteousness” (Ps. 23:6)."

Million Man March Against Jews Set For Saturday In London

Amazing the hatred for a nation so minuscule (the tiny blue sliver is Israel in the map below). What do they fear? The problem is that this is really a spiritual issue, as God has spoken about in His Word.

gaza london
Good thing the British authorities banned Robert Spencer and me from speaking against jihad in the UK. They feared we would incite their Muslim population to riot. Good thing they have that all under control.
The Brits banned the cure for what most seriously afflicts them
The Brits all but destroyed the EDL and there is nothing, no movement against the scourge that hasn’t been criminalized in the UK, in accordance with the Sharia.
These marches are a precursor to war — civil war actions. They are aggressive, violent and call for genocide.
The Brits fought the Nazis only to become the host of their successors.
“One Million Strong Gaza March Planned For Saturday in London,” Breitbart, July 24, 2014
Up to one million activists will march in support of Gaza through London this Saturday. The march is the latest in a series of high profile demonstrations to show solidarity between the British left and the Hamas ruled territory.
