Bible StudyA Pastor in San Diego was informed by a County Official that he was in violation of the county code with his “religious assembly” for having too many people over for a Bible Study. Fox News has the full story here;

When I read about this story I was in shock. What about Christmas time, family barbeque’s, or just hanging out watching the Super Bowl? I find it strange that a problem with a gathering that violates a county code has something to do with the Christian faith. I see persecution coming our way in this country and it is troubling. First we have a Hate Crime Bill (HR 1913) and now this. Maybe this is a wake up call for the Church that has taken its faith in Christ for granted. Maybe this will be a means for us to evangelize and defend our faith in greater ways. Whatever it is we need to wake up and take a look around. Every group in our country is being accepted with the exception of Christianity. However the San Diego problem turns out will be interesting.

cpMiss California Carrie Prejean stood before a national audience this past week and stated that marriage is defined for her as being between a man and a woman. Some think that this kept her from being crowned Miss America. As I looked at several interviews with Carrie I notice that there is no regret from her taking a stance that she believes in. Those who are Disciples of Jesus should be encouraged by Carrie’s bold response. Never should we have any inclination to back down from what we know to be the Truth of God’s Word. I think that Carrie deserves applause for the kind way she delivered her response and the way that she has handled herself. Perez Hilton on the other hand seemed like a crazed man out of control on his video blog. It seems to me that the Homosexual Community cries out for equal rights and says that those who protest are filled with hate. What I see coming from this group is nothing but hate for those who stand on the Word of God as the source for morality. May all of us have compassion in our hearts, but may we never back down as Christians from what God’s Word teaches about sexuality. God created them in the beginning male and female. His design is for a man and woman to be together. He is the Creator and He is the One who has the only right to define what is morally acceptable. Thanks Carrie for taking a stand in a immoral climate.

JS1262311It is official in Vermont! Same sex marriages have been approved by their legislature which over rides the Governor’s Veto! The vote was 100 to 49 which was shocking to me. This is another blow to our Country and God’s standard which clearly states that a marriage is between a man and a woman. My hope for any Church that is sold out to Jesus and the Word that it will stand its ground when discussing this issue with those who are for gay marriage. This is just another problem that I see with the “homosexual agenda.” They are demanding rights and getting them which frightens me. What will be next? Could we see the Church be silenced for preaching what the Word of God clearly says is a sin? This issue is not going away so if you are a Christian I hope you are discussing it inside and outside of the Church. There is a tear in the Church in small ways over this issue already. The generation that is in its early 20’s is more accepting of this because they have been taught that it is “normal.” May those who belong to Christ stand their ground on this issue. We have the right to be heard as much as anyone else in this Country.
