“MSNBC’s Nancy Snyderman attacked Catholic bishops on Thursday for opposing abortion funding in the health care bill, agreeing with the President of NOW that the IRS should investigate them. The “Dr. Nancy” host also complained, “This is going to be a Pollyannaish statement. The Catholic bishops appearing and having a political voice seems to be a most fundamental violation of church and state.

Read the full article and see the news clip here.

Here we go again!!! Can some of you left leaning, bleeding heart liberals explain to me how this is in violation of the NON EXISTENT “church and state?” First off, our Constitution states in part “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;.”  It says nothing about a “separation of church and state”

Secondly, No where does it state that Catholic Bishops or any other religious person, regardless of standing in their particular religion, should have “no voice” in political matters.  What is says is that congress cannot make a law favoring one specific religion. (ie: taxing to support a particular church or making a particular belief system the state sponsored church.

1)  Biblical faith by definition is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. If faith, therefore, is a substance, that means that it is tangible matter; a real thing. It is the reality of what you are actually hoping for.

2)  God Himself is the author and finisher of your faith. Faith in Jesus Christ is the victory that overcomes the world.

3)  God has given every man the measure of faith. It is up to you to develop your faith. You do this by hearing the Word of God preached, worship, prayer, and reading the Bible.

4)  Faith knows that the Word is true, and that whatever God says He will do. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and never fails.

5)  Faith does not stand in the wisdom of man, but in the Power of God. Therefore, you are not to look at the physical circumstances, but believe that God’s power will prevail. You are spirit embodied by flesh, but the Holy Spirit in you is much more powerful than what your eyes can see!

6)  Faith knows that God rewards you if you seek Him with all your heart. In fact, without faith it is impossible to please God. The just live by faith.

7)  Faith is coupled with love and hope, the greatest of which is love. Therefore, true faith is first and foremost revering the Giver and acknowledging His perfect Love for you.

8)  Patience is an essential ingredient of faith. If you know the Word, and you know that you are praying according to the will of God, you know that you will have the petition you asked for. God’s timing is not necessarily your timing.

9)  Faith means that you don’t believe one day and give up the next. Fix your sight on the desired result and don’t take your eyes off it. A double-minded person does not receive anything.

God is faithful and just to forgive, and whenever you fail, you can go again before the Throne of God with a repentant heart. Faith increases the more you use it and see the Hand of God in every situation.

No God? …No Problem!

USA today reports that the American Humanist organization is running an ad campaign using the image at left.  They claim that they do not wish to offend anyone and at the same time, they attack the religious beliefs of millions of Americans.

These are the very same people who claim that Christians are intolerant. This is hypocrisy at it’s worst.  The humanists have no belief system of their own, so they attempt to tear down the belief system of others.

The claim that “we only want to show that you can be good without God” holds no water. If that were true, there would be no need to mention God at all. Why not just say, “This holiday season, be good for goodness sake” or something similar. Well, because that would not allow them to attack those who do believe in a God/god.

You see, humanist cannot tolerate the fact that their are those who believe in a higher power, particularly Christians.  Humanists, Atheists, Freethinkers, whatever you wish to call them, claim they do not accept the belief that there is a God.  And that is ok.  My question then is why do they spend so much time trying to prove there isn’t a God? I don’t believe in Santa, the Easter bunny or the tooth fairy but have never spent one moment of my 70 years trying to debunk those beliefs.  You see, when you really don’t believe in something, you don’t think about it and it doesn’t bother you if others do.  During the next few months, we’ll receive cards from well wishing friends and neighbors with cute images of Santa and his sleigh. Does it offend me? Not in the slightest.

However, if I did have just the slightest bit of doubt, but felt that I could live my life just as well without Santa, then yes, I’d probably be offended if folks kept shoving Santa in my face.

So, I’ve come to the conclusion that these folks, deep down inside realize that their is a God and that He is in control. Unfortunately they wish to carry on with their Godless lives and their egos are so large that they cannot stand the thought of not actually having control over their lives.

Are We Safer Now???

Obama Appoints two devout Muslims to homeland security posts. Doesn’t this make you feel safer already?

Obama and Janet Napolitano Appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development Source for announcement: Homeland Security Press Room. http://atlasshrugs2000..typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/06/obama-appointment-arif-ali-khan-asst-secretary-dhs.html

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is proud to announce that the DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria as ADC 2National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). http://www.adc.org/

This announcement was made on Aug 20.  Why are we just now hearing about it???
NOTE:  Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a
devout Catholic, Jew or Protestant…?

Just wondering.
Doesn’t this make you feel safer already? A devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? That should make our homeland much safer, huh!!
Was it not men of the “Devout Muslim Faith” that flew planes into U.S.
buildings not too long ago. What the heck is this devout Muslim President thinking?

Was it not a DEVOUT Muslim who killed many of his own comrades
at Ft. Hood in Texas?????

President Obama is slowly doing what is necessary to try and turn the USA into an Islamic Nation. America better start praying first and then putting feet to their prayers by getting all these idiotic democrats out of office and elect someone who has some sense and has America’s best interest at heart.

Imitating Christ

crossHE WHO follows Me, walks not in darkness,” says the Lord. (John 8:12.)

By these words of Christ we are advised to imitate His life and habits, if we wish to be truly enlightened and free from all blindness of heart. Let our chief effort, therefore, be to study the life of Jesus Christ.

The teaching of Christ is more excellent than all the advice of the saints, and he who has His spirit will find in it a hidden manna. Now, there are many who hear the Gospel often but care little for it because they have not the spirit of Christ. Yet whoever wishes to understand fully the words of Christ must try to pattern his whole life on that of Christ.

What good does it do to speak learnedly about the Trinity if, lacking humility, you displease the Trinity? Indeed it is not learning that makes a man holy and just, but a virtuous life makes him pleasing to God. I would rather feel contrition than know how to define it. For what would it profit us to know the whole Bible by heart and the principles of all the philosophers if we live without grace and the love of God? Vanity of vanities and all is vanity, except to love God and serve Him alone.

This is the greatest wisdom—to seek the kingdom of heaven through contempt of the world. It is vanity, therefore, to seek and trust in riches that perish. It is vanity also to court honor and to be puffed up with pride. It is vanity to follow the lusts of the body and to desire things for which severe punishment later must come. It is vanity to wish for long life and to care little about a well-spent life. It is vanity to be concerned with the present only and not to make provision for things to come. It is vanity to love what passes quickly and not to look ahead where eternal joy abides.

Often recall the proverb: “The eye is not satisfied with seeing nor the ear filled with hearing.” (Eccles. 1:8.) Try, moreover, to turn your heart from the love of things visible and bring yourself to things invisible. For they who follow their own evil passions stain their consciences and lose the grace of God.

According to an article in the Washington Post, Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, the terrorist who killed 23 people at Fort Hood never formally sought to leave the military as a conscientious objector.

But get this, the article goes on to say:

In 2007, addressing other physicians at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Hasan said that to avoid “adverse events” the military should allow Muslim soldiers to be released as conscientious objectors instead of fighting in wars against other Muslims.

So, this Muslim terrorist feels that Muslims should be allowed to join the Army, suck up on the benefits such as medical school, training, healthcare, etc. but then when called on to fight, which is what soldiers do, he thinks they should be allowed to leave? Give me a break! You join, you fight. Simple as that. This guy, should have been mustered out of the service and shipped off to some Islamic country to spend the rest of his life.

That’s just my opinion, what’s yours?

…is still a terrorist.images Last week, Maj. Nidal Hasan shot and killed 13 Americans and wounded 29 more. This was an act of Islamic terrorism, short and simple.

Of course our President warns us to ‘not jump to conclusions’ with regard to a motive. This is the same president who called the murder of one abortion provider by one man a ‘despicable act”

While I am certainly no expert, I can almost guarantee that Hasan was led by his Islamic faith to do what he did. New facts are coming in daily that support that position. Naturally, the liberal media has refused to divulge most of this info and even refuses to call Hasan a murder or killer. Even though he was caught in the act that was witnessed by many people, they still refer to him as the man ‘suspected’ in the Fort Hood shootings. No, he’s not suspected! He did it. Call it like it is.

America needs to wake up and smell the roses. Islam is a violent religion intent on converting and dominating the world either by coercion or force. Muslims do not believe in religious freedom. Anyone who is not a Muslim, is an enemy of Allah in their eyes and therefore, their enemy.

What are your thoughts on this topic? Do you agree or disagree?
