  • When it's Over, Let It Go (Adam's Mistake)

    The biblical story of Adam and Eve suggests that Eve’s disobedience to God introduced sin to the world which ultimately led to the downfall of man and mankind. It is a story repeated over and over again in the Christian arena. It’s the first story a child learns which attempts to explain why there is so much suffering in life. It is a story which puts the burden of death, destruction, disobedience, and suffering at the feet of Eve, Adam’s wife, or as the Biblical writers describes her – Adam’s Helpmeet. While the story of Adam and Eve is true,...
  • State News on Teaching Evolution (American Institute of Biology)

    The federal education law, No Child Left Behind, requires states establish standards for student assessment. As a consequence, states across the country are working to develop K-12 science standards and model curricula that will ensure students meet these standards. This process has seemingly reinvigorated a host of organizations that oppose the inclusion of evolution in public school curricula or advocate for the inclusion of "alternative theories" ranging from young-Earth creationism to intelligent design. The AIBS Public Policy Office works with various national and state organizations to monitor and report on state and local threats to the teaching of evolution in...

    Does the defeat of Democratic state Sen. Dina Titus in last fall's gubernatorial election mean her pet scheme -- spending millions more in tax money to dragoon all Nevada's kids into the state compulsion school system at age 5 -- is dead? Oh, please. Victorious Gov. Jim Gibbons' weak-kneed "Let's study it" may postpone the inevitable for a few years, but government-funded mandatory schooling from age 4 to 18 (or will it be 22?) will arrive -- and bankrupt us -- in our lifetimes. What will the "studies" show? The same thing studies of the federal Head Start program show:...

    FAITH UNDER FIRE Ten Commandments stunner: Feds lying at Supreme Court Government tells modern visitors it's Bill of Rights being honored Every argument before the U.S. Supreme Court and every opinion the judges deliver comes in the presence of the Ten Commandments, God's law given to Moses on a fire-scorched mountain, and now represented for the United States in the very artwork embedded in the high court structure. In today's world of revisionist history, the proof comes through the work of a California pastor who visited the Supreme Court building recently when he was in Washington and was surprised that...

    In a speech to the Notre Dame student body during the 1984 U.S. presidential campaign, New York governor Mario Cuomo addressed the issue of church-state relations and the growing activism of the so-called Religious Right. The governor said: “Are we asking government to make criminal what we believe to be sinful because we ourselves can’t stop committing the sin? The failure here is not Caesar’s. This failure is our failure—the failure of the entire people of God”1 As a conservative Christian pastor who seeks to uphold biblical morality before two congregations on a weekly basis, I find the above question...

    Does the Fourteenth Amendment make the entire Bill of Rights a restriction against the States? If so, which amendments or clauses? What did both "due process of the law" and "equal protection" mean to the Congress who produced the Amendment? Does the Fourteenth Amendment guarantee State paid education to aliens? [snip] I hope everyone reads this because for me it was the most important reading of the year. One of the most wonderful discoveries you will find from reading is where equal protection of the laws came from and how it was defined to mean by the author of the...

    Separation of ACLU and State By Monty Rainey February 2, 2005 For over 150 years after the drafting of the First Amendment, only a select hand full of cases found their way before the Supreme Court. That all changed radically in 1947 with the the now infamous Everson v. Board of Education case in which Justice Hugo Black et. al. wrongly construed Thomas Jefferson's "Wall of Separation" metaphor and the Court offered its first ever comprehensive interpretation of the constitutional pronouncement on church-state relations. In Black's opinion, all of the privileges and immunities of of citizens recognized in the Bill...

    Bridegroom Press ^ | Steve Kellmeyer
    Religion and politics makes a volatile mix,” or so many are in the habit of saying. That is, after all, the basic justification for Thomas Jefferson’s famed “wall of separation between Church and state,” a wall that was out of date almost from the New Year’s day in 1801 when it was proposed. To see why, let us consider our present situation. Communism and socialism are the purest of economic theory, completely unencumbered by any hint of Christian fundamentalism. Yet, together, the rulers of communist and socialist nations have imprisoned, maimed and slaughtered more people than the last two world...

    Bible Separation Not only does the Bible graphically demand separation from sin, apostasy – sinners and apostates, it also teaches it by example. You see, separation is not a fanciful pastoral plot to make Christians’ lives miserable, nor is it a matter of congregational jealousy to keep their new converts from becoming other church’s new converts. It is clearly taught, generally and specifically, in the pages of God’s Holy (sanctified – separated) Book. It is possible to write volumes analyzing the unmistakable demands of God about separation, but in this article lets’ note a couple of actual cases – Noah’s...
  • Modern Day Balaams

    Modern Day Balaams (Numbers 22-24) Balaam was a diviner (one who uses omens to determine God’s will), the practice of which was condemned in Deut. 18. Yet by all appearances, Balaam was a man of God–a genuine prophet: Balaam’s "God-talk" seemingly attested to his being a prophet (Num. 22:8,13,34,38; 23:12,28; 24:13); God was speaking to him and through him (Num 22:9,12,20,32-35; 23:4,5,16,18-24); Ballaam appeared to worship God in spirit and truth (Num. 22:31); and he blessed the people of God (Num. 23:5,7-10,18-24; 24:2-9,15,19). There are other instances in the Bible where God appears to pagan peoples and reveals Himself: Abimelech...

    <p>ST. LOUIS — John Kerry cited a Bible verse Sunday to criticize leaders who have "faith but has no deeds," prompting President Bush's (search) spokesman to accuse Kerry of exploiting Scripture for a political attack.</p> <p>Kerry never mentioned Bush by name during his speech at New North Side Baptist Church, but aimed his criticism at "our present national leadership." Kerry cited Scripture in his appeal for the worshippers, including James 2:14, "What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?"</p>

    Israel warned over separation fence as Syria threatens revenge By Justin Huggler in Jerusalem 12 October 2003 Days before the UN Security Council is due to debate Israel's "separation fence" in the West Bank, the Palestinians warned yesterday that if the fence is allowed to go ahead, it will mean "the end of the two-state solution" envisaged by President Bush. Fears are growing, not only for what remains of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, but for the stability of the whole Middle East. The war of words between Syria and Israel after an Israeli air strike near Damascus intensified yesterday, with...

    The Road to Civil War By Adam Graham This is the summer of Conservatives’ discontent. Many Americans are suffering from gay fatigue with Canadian gay marriage and our own Supreme Court’s ruling on sodomy. The cultural elite have responded with “Boy Meets Boy” and “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”. While both shows have been successful, that’s not because of overwhelming support for homosexuality. To be a success, 10-15% of the country has to like it. It doesn’t matter if more than half the country’s repulsed by it, it’s still a hit. Ann Coulter’s book, “Treason” is something we haven’t...
