...And Now For Something Completely Different: A Man Who Thinks His Wife Is a Calvinist!

I do believe this man has met my wife:

Signs of the Times: Three Pertinent Quotes

"People who want to have continual abortions push embryonic stem cell research, because they want to be able to cite a reason that killing babies is beneficial to human health."

-- William R. Prather, MD, explaining why President Obama has "guaranteed" he will sign an executive order allowing federal funding if embryonic stem cell research.

"The federal government is bankrupt. In a post-Enron world, if the federal government were a corporation such as General Motors, the president and senior Treasury officers would be in a federal penitentiary."

-- economist John Williams, "Federal Obligations Exceed World GDP," World Net Daily 2/14/09

What is really needed is another Reformation. Nearly 500 years after Luther pounded in his 95 Theses at Wittenberg, things are grim. The doctrinal chaos and confusion, the inroads of eastern pagan spirituality, the grossly compromised circus churches, the shortage of biblical churches, the apostasizing of once solid seminaries—all of it points to carnal and wayward Christianity. Only a sovereign move of God can change the way things are. In the meantime, believers are findings spiritual food where they can in the middle of the local church famine, and are finding fellowship with other believers who are also well aware of the spiritual state of things.

The False Religion of Postmodernism is Literally Killing Us

Our new President, B. Hussein Obama is Exhibit A, as correctly pointed out by Chuck Colson:

The only way to explain it [the president's statement, "There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being"] is to understand the intellectual environment, called postmodernism, in which President Obama and his peers have been raised. Generations of Americans have now been taught that truth is subjective. You have your truth, I have mine. And, even worse, I can’t “inflict” my version of truth on you. The law of non-contradiction has been suspended.

So politicians . . . can take two completely opposing positions at the same time: like believing that no God condones the taking of innocent life and at the same time, condoning—even promoting—the taking of an innocent life.

The problem isn’t simply President Obama and his views on life; the problem is a postmodern culture which believes that truth is merely a matter of opinion, and that therefore the sanctity of innocent human life is simply an expression of one viewpoint among many.

I have argued for the last 20 years that postmodernism would lead to the unraveling of our society. The fact that so few noticed the contradiction in what the President said and the policies he pursues tells me that we’re far along in the unraveling process.

Indeed, postmodernism is not just unraveling our society, it is killing us. Literally.

B. Hussein Obama's Twisted, False Religion

Today President B. Hussein Obama spoke before the National Prayer breakfast. Apparently, he thought "national" referred to some other nation. He was certainly not speaking to the United States of America that the U.S. Supreme Court in years past declared to be "a Christian nation."

No, our current president thinks he is presiding over the world and is not to be bothered by such paltry matters as a mere country. Thus, he held forth at length on what appears to be his highness' favorite theme: how we are all now "citizens of the world." His world, of course.

But more to the point is the twisted and false religion he displayed.

Example no. 1: "But no matter what we choose to believe, let us remember that there is no religion whose central tenet is hate."

My Bible says: "Hate what is evil; hold fast to what is good." (Romans 12:9) Are we to believe that every religion that teaches its followers to hate evil is not a real religion? Or is it just Christianity that's not a real religion to Mr. Obama?

Example no. 2: "There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being."

Hmmm. Since you, Mr. Beneficent, support the taking of millions of innocent human lives in abortion, does that mean your god is a false god? If so, why do you not repent of your false worship of him/her/it and turn to worship and serve the true and living God?

Example no. 3: "...far too often, we have seen faith wielded as a tool to divide us from one another..."

Truth both unites and divides; it delineates the true and distinguishes the true from the false. At the same time, truth invites those who believe in the truth to unite in it.

My question for President B. Hussein is: when Jesus Christ said in John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth and the life; no man can come to the Father except through me" was He being truthful, or was He being divisive?
