  • Virginia Couple Threatened With Eviction for Holding Bible Study File Complaint With HUD

    Christian Post ^ | 10/14/2018 | Michael Gryboski
    An elderly couple facing a possible eviction from a Virginia-based retirement community for hosting a Bible study has taken their fight to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In July, the Community Realty Company sent a notice to Kenneth and Liv Hauge, who live at the Evergreens at Smith Run in Fredericksburg, informing them that they must either stop holding Bible study or be evicted. First Liberty Institute, a conservative law firm representing the Hauges, filed a complaint with HUD on Tuesday, arguing that "CRC and Evergreens' actions violate the Fair Housing Act and its accompanying regulations." "The...

    The Consequences of Child Favoritism By Philip Cottraux The Bible is timeless. Despite being thousands of years old, it still can teach us profound lessons about ourselves. Setting aside just their historical truth, its stories contain universal metatruth on the nature of man. Specifically, the story of Jacob and Esau is perhaps its most cautionary tale on the danger of dysfunctional family dynamics. Like his father Abraham, Isaac and Rebekah had trouble conceiving. And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was inteated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived (Genesis 25:21). After...

    The Purpose of Exile By Philip Cottraux Assyria. The terror of the ancient world is still infamous for their extreme brutality. When the Assyrians would conquer a city, they were known to have “child fires,” lining up the city’s children and forcing the parents to watch while they burned them en masse. They would flay survivors of defeated armies alive and adorn the walls of Nineveh with the skins. Inside, the streets were decorated with “head pyramids,” large piles of decapitated heads of conquered people. Lines of dismembered limbs were strewn from building to building, adorning the city like gruesome...

    The Price Lot Paid By Philip Cottraux Because of a conflict between their herdsmen, Abraham and his nephew Lot decided to part ways. The grazing land just wasn’t big enough for both tribes. Lot could choose where to go; in Genesis 13:9, Abraham said is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. Then lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that...

    A semi-retired Lutheran minister in Fredericksburg, Virginia faces the possibility of being evicted from a senior living community because he’s been hosting a small Bible study in the privacy of his apartment, his attorney alleges. First Liberty Institute, a law firm that specializes in religious liberty cases, is representing Pastor Ken Hauge. The pastor has accused the management of The Evergreens at Smith Run of a pattern of verbal abuse and harassment directed at Christians who live in the complex. “The threat of eviction follows repeated religious discrimination by The Evergreens management, including forcing Hauge to refer to his event...

    By Philip Cottraux Israel was steeped in idolatry under King Ahab, and God had cursed them with a drought. Rainfall was crucial to a civilization’s survival in the ancient world; drought was usually followed by famine. But God was getting ready to shake things up. And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth (I Kings 18:1). Rain was coming; but first the Lord had a plan to rid Israel of its wickedness. Elijah...

    By Philip Cottraux Imagine casually thumbing through your Bible and coming across Job 4:17: Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker? Your first reaction might be to praise God for showing you this wonderful scripture! Job, one of the poetic books of the Old Testament, is filled with amazing insight into why people suffer and how hard it is to see the big picture of God’s plan in our lives. Typical of the kind of thought-provoking and inspiring messages sprinkled throughout Job, this verse contains profound truth! Right? One of...

    For the first time in at least 100 years, the US Cabinet has a bible study group. What do they learn? What does Donald Trump make of it? And why aren't women allowed to teach? Every Wednesday, some of the world's most powerful people meet in a conference room in Washington DC to learn about God. The location can't be revealed - the Secret Service won't allow it - but the members can. Vice-President Mike Pence. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Energy Secretary Rick Perry. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The list goes on. In total, 10...

    The purpose of this post is to begin what I hope to be a yearlong (2018) in depth study of the book of Daniel. Making real world application as we go along and encourage participation across all religious faiths, denominations, ethnicity and religious creeds and cultures. FULL Disclosure: As a Christian it is my sincere desire to always - always - always include the GOSPEL message as part of each discussion. Reason being, simply discussing the Historical Daniel without driving home the point of his message (Vision of future events - which have not yet come) would be tragic in...

    Atheist groups are unhappy with President Donald Trump for allowing a weekly Bible study to take place in the White House.The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) said the Bible study might even be an illegal use of taxpayer funds, the Washington Times reported Thursday."If those officials want privacy, the solution is pretty damn simple: Study the Bible in your private capacity, not in your official capacity and at your government desk," the group said in a statement Thursday. "Do it on your time, not the taxpayers'. In short, get off your knees and get to work."The person behind the Bible...

The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness' sake; He will magnify the law, and make it honourable. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them. Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His Blood to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forebearance of God; to declare I say at this time His righteousness: that He might be Just...

For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust.
