Henny Binn is a charlatan.

To The Editor:

If you can put a county clerk in jail and hold her there without bail. if this can happen to her, who’s next? Your pastor? The president of a Christian school? The chancellor of a Christian university? Who’s next?”

This is not an “isolated incident.” This is what many of us said was going to happen when you start having the courts decide something that violates not only the conscience of a great many people but violates common sense. The Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling was an act of judicial tyranny because they were “just making it up.”

I praise Kim Davis for having more courage than virtually anybody in Congress, more than most hireling pastors standing in pulpits on Sunday. Churchgoers, in your sophisticated open-mindedness have you allowedyour brain to fall out? What’s next? Will you accept: Pedophilia? Bestiality? Incest?

It’s remarkable, and what is essentially stunning about it is that Davis’s a relatively new believer. Davis has only been a follower of Christ for the last four years and by her own admission she had many areas of her life that were not what they should have been. and when she came to Christ she really felt an extraordinary sense of grace and forgiveness.

Her conviction is stunning, inspiring, and it frankly puts most of us to shame. God has raised up Kim Davis to be the representative because she is maybe one of the most unlikely people-a relatively new Christian, a country official in a small rural county in Kentucky and a Democrat.

The court doesn’t have the constitutional authority to make law. St. Augustine, who said that an “unjust law is no law at all,” which Martin Luther King in his Letter From a Birmingham Jail, and noted that Thomas
Jefferson warned against judicial tyranny “if we allow the courts to be the final arbiter of what a piece of legislation was.” And that’s what we have today, judicial tyranny with the courts just making it up.

If the Supreme Court had ruled 5-4 against same-sex marriage, “do you think the left would be saying it’s the law of land, let’s shut the Human Rights Campaign down. and we’re not going to protest and we’re not going to ask for it anymore because that’s the final word?”

Illegal aliens can violate the law in this country. Entire cities can declare themselves “sanctuary cities” citing the Supreme Court and break the law? Jeffrey Dahmer, the Boston Strangler, John Wayne Gacy, and Al Capone all received bail but Kim Davis-a country clerk in Kentucky who’s a Christian and, most ironically, she’s a Democrat-didn’t get bail.” Maybe she should have baked the judge a cake?

To The Editor:

As a Christian, I am committed to biblical faith and ethics. As a result, I
stand on the authority of Scripture and God’s truth as central to our
lives–not the US Constitution or even our church’s constitution. The Bible
is the basis for all our faith and practice. Regardless of what the Supreme
Court rules, my first duty is to love and obey God, not man.

What the Bible says about marriage is clear, definitive and unchanging.
Biblical, traditional, natural marriage is the uniting of one man and one
woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. The Scriptures’ teaching on
marriage is not negotiable.

Consequently, I will not accept, nor adhere to, any legal redefinition of
marriage issued by any political or judicial body including the United
States Supreme Court. I will not recognize same-sex “marriages”, our church
will not host same-sex ceremonies, and we will not perform such ceremonies.

While I and our church affirm our love for all people, including those
claiming same-sex attractions or confused about their biological identity as
male or female, I cannot and will not affirm the moral acceptability of
homosexual behavior or any other behavior that deviates from God’s design
for males and females made in His image, including His plan for marriage.

Therefore, I strongly encourage all pastors, leaders, educators, and
churches to openly reject any mandated legal redefinition of marriage and to
use their influence to affirm God’s design and I urge all truly born again
Christians to leave any church that accepts and practices same-sex
marriage. .

The Lord Jesus affirmed that design by quoting Genesis: “But from the
beginning of the creation God made them male and female. “For this cause
shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they
twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
(Mark 10:6-9).

I stake my life, fortune and future on the truth of God’s Word. Here I stand. I can do none else.

Besides the Seniors programs, mens fellowships (Game and Fish Dinner), prayer breakfasts , teen activities, etc… Every other month, we will be having a Ladies Fellowship starting on February 28th at 12pm. The first will be a soup and salad dinner with Bible lessons/devotions from a book called “Twelve Women of the Bible”. We start with Eve. We will also be asking for some ladies to be taking on getting us more involved in service oriented ministries, (i.e. deep cleaning the church and annex buildings, planting flowers for shut ins, sending of cards, etc) and fellowship ministries where they will plan or assist fellowship activities for the church, the younger couples, and other events for the ladies such as a special tea, mother/daughter banquet, etc. We also hope to start a Ladies Inductive Bible Study Sunday School Class.

New Year’s Resolution

My last year resolution was to lose 30 lbs. I’ve just got 40 pounds to go!

The Poor Wise Man

Ecclesiastes 9:14,15 “There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: 15 Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.”

CITY: The little city: The Earth
SATAN: The great king: The Adversary, “Satan.”
SAVIOR: The poor, wise, man: The Savior, the (1)Poor (2)Wise (3)Man–Jesus Christ.
SALVATION: The salvation by his wisdom (the foolishness of preaching): “He delivered the city.”
SADNESS: The Sadness: “No man remembered that same poor man.”

Will you remember Him this Christmas?

To The Editor

The Pope has the “That’s-Not-What-He-Meant”  Czardinal running his slippers off!   In the pope’s desperation to be relevant, Francis used words about Creation that will hurt Christians for a long time.  However. while media outlets concentrate on Francis saying that God is not a magician, I grieve that a pope would dare to say that God is not divine.   How can anyone support a pope—or church—that says that God is not divine?

The church’s role as arbiter of so-called scientific thought seems so important to Francis that he is willing to sacrifice the divinity of our Creator in order to glamorize the secular elements of man.  Please note similar off the wall comments by Francis
on atheism, the economy and homosexuality.  The pope proves that when anyone seeks in such a manner to be relevant and open-minded, his or her brain falls out and he or she declares his or her faith is a fraud.  If evolution is compatible with creation, then Adam’s and Eve’s parents were non-human apes.  Francis, if we evolved from apes and monkeys, why are there still apes and monkeys?

The assertion from a pope that God is neither divine nor omnipotent is startling.  If that assertion is true, then obviously the miracle of the Virgin Birth is also a myth.  But what is perhaps most startling to me is that such an admission would be met with blasé acceptance by the Christian world.

It seems the pope is no magician either.   His infallibility is a myth.

Joel Osteenisms vs Fortune Cookies

There is very little difference between Joel and fortune cookies. And now, to prove it, I will give you these twelve quotes. You tell me which are from the fortune cookies and which are from Joel Osteen.

Question One
“Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.”

Question Two
“Do all you can to make your dreams come true.”

Question Three
“Take time to make a difference. Think about how you can make somebody else’s life better.”

Question Four
“Avoid focusing on the negative aspects of the past.”

Question Five
“You have something to offer that nobody else can give!”

Question Six
“When you can’t naturally feel upbeat, it can sometimes help to act as if you did.”

Question Seven
“To affirm is to make firm.”

Question Eight
“Relationships are more important than our accomplishments.”

Question Nine
“Somebody needs your encouragement. Somebody needs to know that you believe in them.”

Question Ten
“The best things in life aren’t things.”

Question Eleven
“You will produce what you’re continually seeing in your mind.”

Question Twelve
“Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.”

Fortune Cookie 1,4,6,10,11     Joel Osteen  2,3,5,7,8,9,12
