California’s Department of Public Health released statistics revealing that 111 terminally ill people chose to end their lives last year under the state’s right-to-die law, despite pleas in the past from Roman Catholic leaders and influential California pastor Rick Warren

We understand why people want this bill to exist, not just in California adn the other States that have them, but all around the world. We understand that people do not want to endure pain, suffering nor add to their mounting medical bills or put their family in poverty because of those bills. YET, we also know what God says about killing– Thou Shalt Not Kill– and while many theologians and pastors have come to agree that the word kill here means murder, patient’s with terminal illnesses should not kill themselves. They, and the successful suicidal person, are actually murdering themselves and violating God’s command.

Then while we do not think that those who kill themselves go straight to hell, why take the chance? God is in charge of who gets into heaven and there is no reason to violate God’s word and then expect him to welcome you with open arms. It is best to let the disease run its course and ask God to help you endure.

A prominent LGBT activist who has donated more than anyone else to LGBT causes has said that “wicked” people who advocate for laws protecting the religious freedom of conservative Christians to act in accordance with their views on marriage and sexuality need to be “punished.”

What can we say, those who demand entrance into an institution they have no right to enter turn around and try to beat up those who do have that right. They just prove that they do not belong in the institution and need great attitude adjustments before consideration of their ‘application’.  The governments and courts have not done society any favors by their favorable rulings for the LGBTQ crowd.

Polls showing rising numbers of evangelicals supporting same-sex marriage show the influence of culture and failures of churches, according to two experts interviewed by The Christian Post

This is just wrong. Evangelicals should be standing up for God’s standards of right and wrong, good and evil, moral and immorality instead of listening to the unchurched world distort the issues and lead people to sin. There is no such thing as discrimination when it comes to those standards.

#4. http://www.christianpost.com/news/most-anglicans-in-uk-see-nothing-wrong-with-premarital-sex-gay-relationships-despite-church-doctrine-189941/

A strong majority of Anglicans in the U.K. say they no longer adhere to biblical beliefs on premarital sex and same-sex relationships, according to the British Social Attitudes survey

That is because they want to do what they want and do not want to do what God wants

#5. http://www.christianpost.com/news/hostility-christian-sexuality-beliefs-report-frc-190595/

A new report produced by one of the nation’s leading social conservative activist organization claims that there has been 76 percent increase in religious freedom violations and a 114 percent surge in documented hostility toward Christian views on marriage and sexuality in the last three years.

They are actually hating Jesus and God not Christians. God made the rules, Christians just brig the message and it is up to the listener how they will respond.

#6. http://www.christianpost.com/news/russell-moore-franklin-graham-orgs-urge-trump-to-tackle-severe-persecution-of-sudanese-christians-190263/

Several leading evangelical organizations in America have urged U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to stand up to the destruction of churches and severe forms of persecution Christians and others face in Sudan

It is not just the government’s job to tackle these issues. Then, just because a believer is persecuted or n trouble does not mean that other believers do not help them

#7. http://www.christianpost.com/news/evangelicals-shocked-justin-welbys-award-honoring-christian-lesbian-singer-vicky-beeching-189933/

An evangelical Christian group in the U.K. says it’s in “shock” that Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s “outstanding service to the church” award has been given to Christian lesbian singer Vicky Beeching.

When the church does not stand up for God’s ways, who will?
