We only have internet access for a couple of days so we will send some time posting here.
#1. Anonymous Complaints Are NOT The Foundation For Justice– http://christiannews.net/2015/10/09/homeschooling-family-sues-new-jersey-cps-for-60-million-for-unconstitutional-home-intrusion/
According to reports, the incident occurred this past January as social worker Michelle Marchese arrived at the home of Chris and Nicole Zimmer and sought entry following an anonymous complaint over “improper homeschooling.”
They are a foundation for an unfair and unjust police society, which has been recently exampled by North Korea, China, Russia, Nazi Germany and many other examples. The anonymous complaints are excuses to target people individual government workers do not like and they hurt the innocent, Christians should oppose these tactics because the government, the police, the child protective services no better and they also know that anonymous complaints can merely be tools for revenge, retaliation, vengeance or done out of some petty motivation , and so on.
God has strong views about hurting innocent people as we read:
Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent or the righteous, for I will not acquit the guilty. Ex. 23:7
‘Cursed is he who accepts a bribe to strike down an innocent person.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen. Deut. 27:25
and also for the innocent blood which he shed, for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; and the Lord would not forgive. 2 Kings 24:4
(all scripture quoted from the NASB and do a word study on the term ‘innocent’ to see more of God’s view)
#2. I Am Not In Favor Of Public Days Like This— http://christiannews.net/2015/11/01/christians-worldwide-to-observe-international-day-of-prayer-for-the-persecuted-church-2/
Christians worldwide will be observing the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church today by joining together to intercede for those who daily suffer for their faith in Jesus Christ.
We need to do what scriptures says:
But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. Mt. 6:6
We have our reward if we advertise our actions to the public. If congregations want to pray then they can gather quietly in their churches or members’ homes and pray. Persecution is a fact of the Christian life so we need to pray that God will prepare us for when it comes to us, that we can endure as well as praying for those suffering persecution right now. We can pray that the persecution will stop but it is better to pray that God will be glorified through these traumatic times and that those being persecuted will not lose faith, hope or give up their belief.
#3. We Can Say It Is A Form Of Persecution— http://christiannews.net/2015/11/02/state-human-rights-commission-appeal-seeks-to-force-christian-business-to-print-gay-pride-t-shirts/
A court battle continues over the right of a Christian business not to print t-shirts for a “gay pride” event in conflict with its biblical beliefs after the Kentucky Human Rights Commission recently filed an appeal in an effort to force the company to comply with its demands.
As previously reported, the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization of Lexington (GLSO) had wanted the Kentucky-based Hand On Originals–a company that identifies as “Christian outfitters” on the home page of its website–to print t-shirts for the 2012 Lexington Gay Pride Festival. When manager Blaine Adamson declined the order due to the company’s biblical convictions, GLSO filed a complaint with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Human Rights Commission.
Given the fact that the members of the homosexual community can choose to go to a business that will fulfill their request without problems.Forcing people to go against their beliefs is wrong and there is no need to sue or ask for damages. We all get rejected by one business or another and it doesn’t feel good but that rejection is not worth suing over. Just do business with those who are user-friendly.
#4. Compromising To Get Votes Is Wrong— http://christiannews.net/2015/10/15/presidential-candidate-ben-carson-rejects-young-earth-says-planet-could-be-billions-of-years-old/
“Well, I certainly believe that God is our creator,” Carson replied. “And interestingly enough, if you look at our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, it talks about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator.”… Carson was likewise asked about his beliefs surrounding evolution in an article featured in this month’s Time Magazine, stating that he doesn’t believe in secular evolution in the sense that it suggests that there is no God, but is a proponent of theistic evolution.
Even in politics, the biblical message must not change. Being someone who compromises sends the wrong message which can be interpreted in the wrong manner. If believers claim to stand with God then they need to stand with God and represent him correctly.
#5. I Would Like To See This Film— http://christiannews.net/2015/09/14/documentary-reveals-incredible-journey-of-discovery-confirming-biblical-exodus-account/
A filmmaker who spent over 10 years investigating the reliability of the biblical Exodus story has concluded that the Bible’s account is in fact historically accurate and has released an award-winning documentary that sheds light on his new archaeological findings.
Is the Exodus story in the Bible accurate? Many skeptics today dismiss the account as a fanciful myth, but the recently-released documentary “Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus” challenges that verdict with historical evidence uncovered during a lengthy investigation.
I have talked to this filmmaker over the years and remain skeptical as the my first contact with them, found that they were using dubious physical evidence and people while stating their claim. I would like to see their finished product but with their limited release and my international living I do not have much of an opportunity to view it.
Even though I have talked to them in recent months I remain skeptical as I know what evidence there is and fear that they are just rehashing old ground. No matter what physical evidence is claimed to exist, faith is still the key when it comes to the Bible and its people/events.
In an interview with Christian News Network, van der Ventel explained why—as a physicist—he firmly believes the literal, historical interpretation of the Bible’s creation account. The theory of evolution, he explained, is scientifically unsubstantiated.
Science can never contradict the Bible because our origins was a product of a supernatural act coming from supernatural power not natural methods.There is no alternative to Genesis.
#7. Genetics Like Any Other Field…– http://christiannews.net/2015/07/27/science-supports-genesis-geneticist-says-evidence-confirms-biblical-adam-and-eve/
“One of the most compelling genetic evidences for an original human couple created by God is mitochondrial DNA research done by creation geneticist, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson,” she advised. “He clearly shows that the common human female ancestor of us all (biblical Eve) lived within the biblical timeframe of several thousand years ago.”
These findings, along with other evidence presented in “The Genetics of Adam & Eve,” directly contradict the claims of evolutionists, said Purdom.
“This female ancestor could not have lived 100,000 or more years ago as the evolutionists claim,” she continued. “In addition, genetics clearly shows that human and chimps do not share a common ancestor. There are many, many differences in their DNA that completely undermine the possibility of shared ancestry only a few million years ago.”
Can be manipulated by secularists. I just wish Dr. Purdom gave more and better details as to why and how these conclusions came about. One of the problems with believers is that they do not or cannot go into better detail when making their arguments. They are in too big of a hurry to get to the conclusion and forget there is a lot of hard work to be done in between the beginning or presenting one’s point and the conclusion.
