Test For a Christian

We say we are Christian which in its claim defines us as one who knows, believes in and lives by the teachings of Jesus Christ. In this regard church affiliation makes no difference at all. As a nation, by our own word we then are in fact overwhelmingly a Christian people. Are we proud to be Christian – that is to say a brother or sister of Jesus Christ? Or are we embarrassed to live and express that faith?


When it comes to morality and the liberalism and permissiveness of our society and all we have supported or promoted, either personally or by our selected government representatives, do we believe in our heart we can be as two individual people in one – one who is devout in a relationship with God and one entitled to support or do as we choose without being held accountable?


Here is a test to discover for yourself where you stand in a relationship with Christ. Perhaps it may serve to help and guide each of us in determining what choices we should make regardless of the issue.


In a private place, recite verbally and thoughtfully “The Lord’s Prayer”, the prayer Jesus Himself taught us to pray to Our Heavenly Father, and immediately following this prayer, try to verbalize the choice you are intending to make. If you ARE Christian and ARE truly in a relationship with Jesus Christ, after reciting “The Lord’s Prayer” and saying your intention to support or renounce the particular issue (for example, abortion rights, the legalization of same sex marriage, etc.), you will know undeniably if your intended choice is acceptable to God as well as your accountability. A person may fool others but can not fool them self or God.
May the Holy Spirit guide us all.
Reflect on 1 John CH2: vs4-6.

Go Chick-fil-a Go Christian

Dan Cathy, the president and chief operating officer of "Chick-fil-a", appearing on “The Ken Coleman Talk Show”, voiced his position as a Christian in that he supports marriage according to its “biblical definition”. His public support of God’s will according to scripture and his concern over the direction our society is heading has raised some attention by both those who support and defend marriage according to its consistent, historic and biblical definition, as well as those of the “liberal” side of society, many of whom by today’s standards have actually surpassed liberalism reaching a level of perverse permissiveness within our American culture. What I find most telling is the arrogance of the politicians who publicly threaten to break the law by abusing their public office to retaliate against this man because he has Christian values. We're not that far from those values ourselves considering at least many of our parents lived by faith and morality not too many years ago.

Personally I have never patronized a “Chick-fil-a” so I can not comment on their products but after reading some of the offensive responses made by those who claim themselves to be “liberal government officials”, it is obvious they are not so liberal in regard to others positions that conflict with their personal views at all.

Whether it be Boston Mayor Thomas Menino’s statement that he will block the Chick-fil-a chain from coming to Boston because of the company president’s stance on marriage” (that's illegal mayor), or Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s siding with Mayor Menino in condemning Dan Kathy’s devotion to his Christian faith and scripture (no surprise there), allow me to present this as clear as possible: any governing representative holding public office who uses his elected office to interfere with a citizen's right to pursue legitimate business opportunities because of their Christian moral values, such politician breaches the constitutional rights due every citizen of the United States, causing such breach by the abuse of his or her office and should resign that office regardless of any official legal action that may or may not occur. that is of course if they are of good moral character them self.

According to Mayor Emanuel, "Chick-fil-a” values are not Chicago values.” The fact of the matter is, historically and theologically speaking, Mr. Cathy is the one expressing an understanding and respect for moral values while Mr. Emanuel is clearly suggesting Chicago does not possess such values.

There is nothing that was expressed by Mr. Cathy that any true Christian should find offensive let alone not agree with if familiar with the Bible. According to the claims of over eighty percent of the population of the United States, we are a predominantly Christian country - or do we just claim to be? It appears that both Mayor Menino and Emanuel should do a little historic research into what marriage is, what Christianity teaches, and the adopted social permissiveness that led to the collapse of Rome during the era of Caligula. In fact, I recommend the same research for anyone who feels today’s moral decay is a positive step for humanity, because we have arrived at the same level of social moral decay and perversity as that society did during the first century, are very close to our own collapse, and yet we have the audacity to historically refer to Caligula as a perverse and insane mad man.
 
I will be patronizing “Chich-fil-a”

In Who We Trust?

Recently Mr. Obama claimed those who found and succeed in business in this country are not successful because of their own ingenuity, investment, risks and efforts or God given talents, but because of the opportunities government provides them. As such they should be beholding to the government. This is a fundamental notion once held by the USSR where government held the place our Creator once held in the United States before our evicting God form the principles of our country.

No, Mr. President, the government does not nor can it claim such a perverse position in the United States of America. It was the ingenuity, investment and efforts of men to the point of sacrificing their lives when necessary - citizens who proudly announcing their faith in God and the principles of moral judgment and the acknowledgment of the respect due all men that founded this country and formed the government “by the people and for the people”, long before government or this country existed. It did not grow by itself. It was in recognition of our Creator and moral values that this country was founded upon and it is the eviction of God and morality that has led our nation through extreme greed and liberalism to the point it is today, the verge of collapse. By the same principles, it will be through God alone this country may return to the prosperous and respected nation the world once acknowledged as the most powerful and successful nation in the world; one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. From its birth, it was as the Declaration of Independence proclaimed long before the Constitution was set forth in text:

 “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator (God being the creator) with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life (Life being the first unalienable right), Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”.

 This is why God once Blessed America and this is the only means to its healing.
