  • Now Is The Time For All Good Women To Come To The Aid Of Their Country

    10/15/2018 7:49:28 AM PDT · by Richard William I · 5 replies
    And, by Good Women, I am referring to all those ladies who are not so extremist that they would believe that other women cannot lie, and would rather not replace the  Constitution with radical uncaring, unfeeling womananity (unfeminine Feminism). At one time we called men who were so gendercentric  "Male Chauvinist Pigs." Maledom  has been so demeaned by the modern culture in the media, academia, Hollywood, and especially the Democrat Party, that it is a wonder that there are any males still associated with the Dems. This is why there is a record number of women running for elected office,...
  • "An Idolatry of Works and Wealth, and the One Thing Lacking" (Sermon on Mark 10:17-22)

    “An Idolatry of Works and Wealth, and the One Thing Lacking” (Mark 10:17-22) In today’s Gospel we meet a man who ran up to Jesus with great eagerness. At the end, though, he went away with great sadness. What happened in between? Our text today is the story of what this man had and what he didn’t have. What he had was an idol. Actually, it was a twofold idolatry. And what he didn’t have was one essential thing. So now let’s find out what his idolatry was and what the one thing he lacked was. And as we do,...
  • "A Citizenship Even Bigger than Texas" (Funeral sermon on Hebrews 11; John 14; Philippians 3)

    “A Citizenship Even Bigger than Texas” (Hebrews 11:13-16; John 14:1-6; Philippians 3:20-21) His name was “Emerick,” but everybody called him “Tex.” That was our brother Emerick “Tex” Labus. He went by “Tex” for as long as I’ve known him, and that’s been over ten years. Even though he lived here in Missouri for I don’t know how long, people still called him Tex. I guess you can take the boy out of Texas, but you can’t take the Texas out of the boy. I’ve observed over the years that people from Texas are very proud of being from Texas. And...

    For over a year since the #MeToo movement began, women have turned to social media with stories of sexual harassment and calls for reform that have powerfully reshaped our society. In recent weeks, women have flooded Facebook and Twitter and Instagram with pleas to #BelieveWomen, as Brett Kavanaugh gained a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court amid turmoil over accusations of sexual assault. And with just weeks to go before the Nov. 6 midterms, women are sure to make their presence known online in an election largely centered on female candidates' surging campaigns and female voters' intensifying anger. At this...

    Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was seen serving food to the homeless while volunteering for Catholic Charities in Washington, D.C., Wednesday, causing left-wing critics to allege the scene was a staged public relations stunt aimed at “humanizing” him. What are the details? Entertainment publication TMZ reported on Judge Kavanaugh keeping up his volunteer work in spite of it being his first week on the Supreme Court. The jurist was seen working alongside his former pastor — Monsignor John Enzler, who is now the CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington — feeding homeless residents while his security detail...

    Jasmin Kaur wrote her poem “her voice” in December 2016. At a time predating the official start of the Trump presidency, her words were meant as a guiding principle for Sikh women like her, who struggle against racism and the feeling of invisibility that accompanies it. In her poem, she writes: Scream, So that one day a hundred years from now Another sister will not have to dry her tears Wondering where in history she lost her voice But in an ironic turn, last week Kaur saw her poem go viral in the days following Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to...

    Dallas Bishop Edward Burns will join other bishops in Texas in releasing the names of all priests who have been accused of child sex abuse since the 1950s. According to the Diocese of Dallas, all 15 bishops in Texas have agreed to publish a list credibly accused clergy members before the end of January. It’s an effort to show their ongoing work to protect children from sexual abuse, as well as promote healing and the restoration of trust in the Catholic Church.

    Once it becomes clear the two-state solution is finally dead, Jordan should again be asked to exercise control over suitably delineated portions of the West Bank and have the monarchy's religious role for holy sites like the Temple Mount reaffirmed President Trump’s National Security Adviser - John Bolton - has exposed the fiction that there is a legally-constituted “State of Palestine”—shredding United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and United Nations (UN) resolutions misleadingly recognising such a state when none - in fact—exists. Bolton was unequivocal in his statement:

    Hello Freepers, Another request for prayers for my daughter Katie. Her cancer has resurfaced for the 3rd time. This time while it has spread further afield, the lesions are much smaller and very slow growing. She just had a biopsy done yesterday and I'm asking for prayers that it turns out benign. She has had a mighty struggle but has remained strong, positive and resilient. Thank you so much and God Bless, Best always, Gail S.

    Christ said we should give to Caesar (civil government) the things that are Caesar’s. At the least, voting is what we should do to fulfill this admonition. Let’s vote! The former head of the Southern Baptist Convention and prolific gospel preaching pastor, Adrian Rogers had a simple but profound viewpoint on the importance of the Christian to get out and vote. “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” (Ro 13: 1)

    “The Word Is Very Near You” (Deuteronomy 30:11-30; Genesis 2:18-25; Mark 10:2-16) In the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses is having a review session with the people of Israel. They’re about to enter the promised land of Canaan, and Moses has some things he wants to go over with them. That’s the Book of Deuteronomy in a nutshell. Moses reviews all that the Lord has done to bring them to this point. How he had brought them out of Egypt, out of their bondage there. How he had provided for them during their wilderness journey, in spite of their grumbling and...
  • Let's pray that the Lord Jesus will heal us from nicotine addiction

    My dear FRiends, let's agree in prayer together that the Lord Jesus will move on our behalf and heal our bodies from the curse of nicotine addiction. Jesus is the same "Yesterday, Today, and Forever"; the miracles that He did during His ministry, and after He rose from the dead before He went up into Heaven, He still does today. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, dear ones. He loves you and wants the very best for you, and He will never, ever leave you nor forsake you. Father God, in the Name of Your Son Jesus we ask forgiveness...

  • Does the Language You Speak Change Your Brain?

    A growing body of evidence shows that language doesn’t just give people a set of words to express their thoughts. It actually can have a heavy influence on those thoughts and on the behaviors they lead to. What would this mean for the thinking and behavior of a person who learns a “pure language”?

    As most of the world knows, Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been going through Hades during his nomination process to the American Supreme Court. His wife, Ashley, and their two daughters have also been put through much unnecessary harassment and abuse. Ashley Kavanaugh has asked people to pray for them and for the nation, specifically by praying Psalm 40.

    “Grumbling on the Way to the Promised Land” (Numbers 11:4-6, 10-16, 24-29) Our text this morning is the Old Testament Reading from Numbers 11. At the start of this text we hear the Israelites grumbling against God and against his servant Moses. It says: “Now the rabble that was among [the children of Israel] had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also wept again and said, ‘Oh that we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. But now our...

    Ancient ruins found in the Israeli wilderness could solve the biblical mystery of the Exodus, archaeologists claim. According to the Bible, Moses liberated the Israelites from slavery in Egypt and led them through the wilderness of Sinai, before they crossed the River Jordan into the promised land of Canaan. Yet no historical basis for the legend exists, and experts generally agree the Israelites were in fact native to Canaan - an ancient region covering modern day Israel. However, scientists are now analysing whether ruins near the River Jordan are proof of a nomadic Israelite people crossing into the ancient land...
