CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - For more young people, always doing their own work in school and always telling the truth might be a thing of the past.

The Josephson Institute released its annual report card on the ethics of American youth.

In a survey of nearly 30,000 teens, over 30 percent admitted to stealing from a store within the past year. Fourty-two percent said they lied to save money and 64 percent admitted to cheating on a test.

Some Chicopee High School students told 22News it happens more than you think.

"There are definitely kids that are slacking, don't do their work. They're like, 'can I copy?' And other kids feel bad," said Jeffrey Pula, a junior at Chicopee High School.

As for the reasons behind the dishonest behavior in some of their peers, these teens point to added pressures, laziness, and the need for some to show off.

Despite the high levels of dishonesty, respondents in this survey felt that they often do what's right. A whopping 93 percent said they were satisfied with their personal ethics and character.

Christians, Stay Strong

Over the past week, I have taken the time to do a little research.The research is in the area of Christian persecution. I thought for the longest time that persecution was only in a Country where you would hear of people being burned alive, or acid thrown in their faces. All in the name of trying to quiet the voice of Chritians , spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I found this persecution,in varying degrees going on all over the World.And in recent days has been becoming more frequent!!!
What brought Christian persecution to the forefront , in my life anyway, was a blog I read. This blog made me rejoice, and after reading some of the comments they turned my glee to sadness. The blog I speak of is by Jean at http://thewomanofvirtue.blogspot.com/2008/10/four-year-old-who-knows-she-needs.html?commentPage=2
I first, read the blog, and was so enriched and blessed at it's candor and innocence. I scroll down to see comments and yes, for a tad,I did get angry! But that emotion immediatly turned to sadness. The cruel,pious,worldly view I read on those comments,were from the people that were lost.Lost and truly needed to be saved. They spoke of self esteem and Christian parents ,that believe our Children are born into evil, we would be child abusers!! They speak of what they know not of. They speak of a Worldly view!! I do think that the abuse Jean has taken from these lost souls was for God's Glory!! Why? We may never know.But God surely Knows!!NO DOUBT!! I also do not doubt that we are weak and God makes us strong!! The trials we go through we must endure!!
Jean is a blessed child of God!! She is on the battlefield and all that have been touched by her story, have come to join her!!We stand beside her no matter what might come! Because as Christians , we know persecution is coming faster and more furious than ever before. Be steadfast in the Lord,trusting him always!!!

Your Child's Greatest Need


John MacArthur

Adapted from What the Bible Says About Parenting: God's Plan for Rearing Your Child by John MacArthur.


If you've been a parent for any time at all, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that your child came into the world with an insatiable faculty for evil. Even before birth, your baby's little heart was already programmed for sin and selfishness. The inclination toward depravity is such that, given free reign, every baby has the potential to become a monster.

Original sin is the biblical doctrine that explains your child's sinful proclivity. It means children do not come into the world seeking God and righteousness. They do not even come into the world with a neutral innocence. They come into the world seeking the fulfillment of sinful and selfish desires. Scripture also teaches a doctrine called total depravity, referring to the extent of original sin. Although the outworking of the sin nature does not necessarily attain full expression in everyone's behavior, it is nonetheless called total depravity because there is no aspect of the human personality, character, mind, emotions, or will that is free from the corruption of sin or immune to sin's enticements.

Put bluntly, sin is not learned—it is an inbred disposition. Your kids got their sinful nature from you, you got it from your parents, your parents got it from their parents, and so on, all the way back to Adam. In other words, Adam's fall tainted the entire human race with sin. Both the guilt and the corruption of sin are universal. The apostle Paul wrote, "Through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned" (Rom. 5:12, emphasis added). "Through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men" (v. 18), meaning we inherited the guilt of sin. And "through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners" (v. 19), meaning we inherited the corruption of sin. No one is exempt. No one is born truly innocent.

That means that left to themselves, your children will pursue a course of sin. And left entirely to themselves, there is no evil of which they are incapable. You may find that hard to swallow, especially when you see them as newborns. Infants seem to be the very epitome of chaste, precious, childlike innocence. But don't let the cute cheeks, the playful coos, and the bright eyes fool you — those children are a miniature version of you! The depravity that lives in their hearts is just waiting for the opportunity to express itself.

So how should the doctrines of original sin and total depravity impact your parenting? Before I answer that, let me show you three parenting approaches that miss the mark.

Focus on Behavior
Many parents go off track by focusing all their efforts on controlling their child’s behavior. Be careful. If you concentrate all your energies on correcting external behavior, or staving off misbehavior with threats of discipline, you may be doing little more than training a hypocrite.

I've seen that happen repeatedly. I know Christian parents who think their parenting is successful because they've taught their children to act politely on cue, to answer with "Yes, Sir" and "No, Ma'am," and to speak to adults when spoken to. While that kind of behavior control may appear to work wonders for a time (especially when the parents are nearby), it does not address the root problem of depravity. Sinful behavior is a symptom of a sinful heart.

Focus on Environment
Other parents try to control their child's environment. They attempt to build a cocoon around their kids to isolate them from bad influences. They restrict their children's exposure to television, ban popular music from the home, and sometimes forbid contact with children whose parents may not share their same parenting philosophy.

While I do think you should shield your kids from the experience of evil, you need to teach them to be wise and discerning when confronted with evil. They won’t learn those lessons if they are completely isolated. The isolationist approach merely produces naïve children who are gullible and vulnerable, defenseless in the world.

Try as you might, you won't be able to isolate your children forever. When the day comes that they venture out into the world, they need to be prepared with discernment skills and wisdom to detect and resist the enticements of the devil and the world. If you choose to shield them from an evil environment, you are ignoring the enemy within them — a depraved heart. But if you win the heart, you win the child.

Focus on Self-Esteem
A very prevalent approach today is to build a child's self-esteem. That method assumes that if a child sees himself as good, noble, and wonderful, he'll not only behave better, but he will also treat others better. This method turns self-love into a virtue.

The truth is that much of the modern effort to spark kids' self-esteem is simply pouring gasoline on a runaway fire. It encourages already selfish kids to think they are justified in wanting their own way. It makes you as a parent think you have to defer to the child, no matter what, because the child has a right to express himself freely, so he feels good about himself. All of that only escalates out-of-control behavior and feeds the worst tendencies of human depravity. Want to ensure that your child will become a delinquent? Feed his self-esteem and then compound the problem by refusing to correct him when he is wrong.

Self-esteem is based on an unbiblical perspective that denies original sin and the doctrine of total depravity. The Bible has nothing positive to say about self-esteem, self-love, or any other variety of self-centeredness. It teaches your child to deny himself, not love himself (Luke 9:23).

Focus on the Heart
There's only one remedy for your child's inborn depravity: the new birth—regeneration. As Jesus said to Nicodemus, "That which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit… [Therefore,] you must be born again" (John 3:6-7). "Born of the flesh" with a sinful bent, your children have no power to free themselves from sin's bondage. They lack the Holy Spirit and thus have no capacity to please God or obey Him from the heart (cf. Rom. 8:7-8). Until your children are born again, they are dead in "trespasses and sins" (Eph. 2:1).

So your top priority as a parent is to be an evangelist in your home. You need to teach your children the law of God, show them their need for a Savior, and point them to Jesus Christ as the only One who can save them. If they grow up in your home without a keen awareness of their need for salvation, you have failed as a parent in your primary task as their spiritual leader. Teach them the gospel and ask God to perform His sovereign work of regeneration.

One word of caution about that — if you try to force, coerce, or manipulate your kids into a profession of faith, you may pressure them into making a false profession. The new birth is a work of the Holy Spirit, and your child's salvation is a matter that must ultimately be settled between him and God.

Don't approach parenting by focusing on the symptoms rather than the heart. If you attempt to modify your children's behavior, isolate them, or bolster their self-esteem, you will not only exacerbate the problem, you will fail to reach to the heart of the matter. But if you teach them about their sin and need for the Savior, and if you live a life that models what you are teaching them to be, you can rest your hope in God's grace for the salvation of your children.

A Beautiful Thing!!

There is a blog "The Virtuous Woman" it is the testimony of a precious Mommy that is Glorifying the Lord. Her little 4 year old daughter had come to some realization that she was nothing,without the Lord!! The comments being left on her blog are honestly very heartless and Vile. Pure hate!!
Persecution is for the Glory of God!! And the persecution we have seen in the last 2 weeks has put everything in fast forward!! The comments that this precious child of God is getting are horrible,vile, anti-God!! It breaks ones heart to really understand that this society is so blind to Gods Word.We, as Christians sometimes living only in our Community,take for granite that there is a real darkness out there!! That, God even mentioned in a lot of circles today evokes anger,hate,and disgust.
As Christians, it is even more important today to proclaim the Bible, in it's entirety as the infallible Word of God!!!

Why won't people Listen?

Published 2/8/2002 Deborah SimmonsTHE WASHINGTON TIMES
Before we get any further into Black History Month, I thought I'd help pass on some information of significance. This is not to belittle what others have said or might say. It's just that, well, so much of what black history really means to America has been commercialized or reduced to trivial pursuits of the first black this and the first black that. And, although we still need to be reminded of the short distance between here and not-so-far-back there, we also occasionally need to take stock. So here goes. You know who the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was, and most of us know, or at least think we know, what he stood for, right? I said "think we know" because I offer up what portends to be a little-known black history fact. Margaret Higgins Sanger, the mother of Planned Parenthood and grand dame of latter-day women's lib balderdash, hoodwinked the good reverend doctor — who, in his May 1966 acceptance speech of the Margaret Sanger Award, granted by Planned Parenthood Federation of America, mentioned a striking "kinship between our [civil rights movement] and Margaret Sanger's early efforts." Poor King, moving orator though he was, misspoke. First, a little about the socialist herself. Sanger, born in 1879 into an Irish Catholic family, was encouraged by her father to be a nonconformist. While in nursing school, she married architect William Sanger and they had three children. The Sangers first lived for many years in Hastings, an affluent suburb of Westchester, N.Y., but her wanderlust lured her to New York City. As a visiting nurse on the Lower East Side, it was there that she adopted the cause of birth-control (and, shh, abortion) as one sidebar to her eugenics-based radicalism after a poor woman died following an "unwanted" pregnancy. In 1916, Sanger opened her first birth-control clinic, an illegal birth-control clinic, setting in motion abominable ends to the beauty of giving life. Over three generations, Sanger founded the Birth Control Review, which regularly published pro-eugenics writings. Also during that time, she was jailed for passing on obscene literature and chastised repeatedly by the religious community. She had even shamelessly abandoned her own family in the name of, ahem, the cause, and took up with several men — including the English novelist H.G. Wells — and fled America to avoid prosecution. Undeterred and unbowed, Sanger and a precursor to Planned Parenthood, the Birth Control Federation of America, decided to turn their attention to black folk. They devised a plan for an "experimental" clinic that Sanger said would "reduce the birth rate among ... elements unable to provide for themselves, and the burden of which we are all forced to carry," writes Tanya L. Green, author of "The Negro Project: Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Plan for Black Americans." Sanger convinced black ministers, doctors and teachers — including NAACP co-founder W.E.B. DuBois — and others who straddled the upper echelons of black America, that so-called family planning programs (including abortion, hush-hush) were a good thing. Blessedly, not all were so easy convinced. After holding a mass meeting on Sanger's behalf at the hugely popular and powerful Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, many blacks sensed the undercurrent of eugenics. In fact, the Rev. Adam Clayton Powell Sr., whose son succeeded him in Abyssinian's pulpit and later became a congressman, was an adviser to Sanger and her band of population-controllers, and took considerable criticism for his role for allowing "that awful woman in his church," Ms. Green writes. "Eventually, the Urban League took control of the clinic, an indication that the black community had become ensnared in Sanger's labyrinth." (You can read more about this at www.cwfa.org.) Any woman who dares to claim that Planned Parenthood has strayed from Sanger's insidious "Negro Project" has got be mad, a sister from another planet. So, people, do not miss the point. Please don't get hung up on the word Negro, it was the preferred and respectable word of choice in those days and, Lord knows, we have been, and are, called far worse. And please don't go that other route, that victim route. Don't you dare let me hear you say, "Oh, the poor ignorant Negroes just couldn't comprehend the wonders of birth-control." Stick to the issue. Sanger shrewdly used the influence of prominent blacks to reach the masses of those least in position to help themselves. But, instead of offering them charity and comfort, she misled these women — be they poor, ignorant, black, Irish, Jewish or otherwise — to believe that the real conspirators were men who wanted to control their bodies. (Do all whores think that way?) Make no mistake: Margaret Sanger's views were bigoted, racist and sexist, and she was cunning to boot. Read Sanger's own words for yourself. "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," she once wrote. I can't for the life of me figure out how women continue to sing the praises of such a woman — a woman who rebelled against her Catholic upbringing in particular and God in general, spat at her mother for having 11 children, rebelled against her own motherhood and rebelled against marital monogamy by flitting from man to man. Please, visit Ms. Green's writings at cwfa.org and see how Sanger's twisted legacy took root. Then, perhaps, you'll better understand why I chose this topic as my first column honoring Black History Month.

The Kumbaya Crowd Beat up 75 year Old Lady!!

In Palm Springs CA. protesters were mad because Prop 8 passed and said that Marriage was between a man and a woman. A 75 year old woman thought she would show her side of the issue so she walked in front of the Angry Protesters with a Cross. The protesters surrounded her and violently knocked the Cross out of her hand and stomped on it with an anger that was far from rational! Why can't these people understand the Judeo-Christian belief system. To deny what God commands we are sinning. They do not believe in the God of the Bible or they surely would not act in this manner. It is very sad to see a sect of people that espouse Peace, Love and kindness but show such hateful behavior.

It is very disturbing because our Country was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs. While visiting Williamsburg VA last year, we took the tour!! It was very interesting because as we toured the Palace, we were told that when George Washington,John Adams, and many that signed the Declaration of Independence when they would come upon a problem in this infant of a Country they would get on their knees and ask God Almighty for guidance. This is where this Country was blessed , was on our knees.!! I am so grateful that the Society that is running the Williamsburg living museum is keeping with the true history of our Country. Not try to change history.

This is why when I hear that the Liberals are trying to protect the rights of Muslims, and they feel so sorry for the terriost in Gitmo, i wonder if they see that the Liberals contribution to our Country plays a big part in why Extremist want to kill us!! But they will up for them. Put down their own Country for them. When was the last time you saw Liberals standing up for Christians or Conservatives for that Manner? Muslims beliefs don't allow them to tolerate Homose xuality, Pornogrophy, Immorality. But we don't see Liberals protesting at the Mosque's , do we?
We as Christians can not go AGAINST the Word of God,Period!!

Genesis 19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
Genesis 19:2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
Genesis 19:3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
Genesis 19:4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
Genesis 19:5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.Genesis 19:6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
Genesis 19:7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.Genesis 19:8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
Genesis 19:9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
Genesis 19:10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
Genesis 19:11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
Genesis 19:12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
Genesis 19:13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Leviticus 18:29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Timothy 1:8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
1 Timothy 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
1 Timothy 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

The Gospel

MAT 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
MAR 1:15 "The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"16:15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
ROM 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
1CO 15:1 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
GAL 1:9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!
1 Timothy 3:1 KJV) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.(1 Timothy 3:2 KJV) A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;(1 Timothy 3:3 KJV) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;(1 Timothy 3:4 KJV) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;(1 Timothy 3:5 KJV) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)(1 Timothy 3:6 KJV) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.(1 Timothy 3:7 KJV) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
(James 1:5 KJV) If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Fore Fathers & God!!

Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams

"Political interest [can] never be separated in the long run from moral right"
"Can the liberties of a nation be sure when we remove their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people, that these liberties are a gift from God? Thomas Jefferson
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.--I Timothy 2:1-2

Margaret Sanger Would Have Loved Barack Obama
By Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr., March 5, 2008
Revelations of eugenic ideology and the racist practices of Planned Parenthood are unfolding more and more.
The public is just beginning to believe what people of conscience have known long ago: Planned Parenthood has diabolically perpetrated their murderous plot to surgically eliminate those they deem undesirable. In other words: kill the babies of unsuspecting minority women by aborting their children. Then, tell them this is a "good thing" for you and your people. No other ethnic group in the United States has been decimated more by abortion than the Afro-American community. The war being waged upon innocent captives in the womb is led by Planned Parenthood.
The strategy:
Convince the targeted community to accept their eugenic racist plan by selecting one from their ethnicity to promote it. One of Planned Parenthood's earliest known projects was in 1939. It was called the “Negro Project” -- a project designed to control the birth of "human weeds" which was how Margaret Sanger referred to colored people; a project designed to introduce abortion, sterilization and different forms of birth control. This is what a co-eugenic wrote to Margaret Sanger to make sure the "Negro Project" was a success:
Clarence Gamble, heir of Proctor and Gamble, wrote a memorandum in November, 1939 entitled: "Suggestions for the Negro Project." In the letter he suggested black leaders “be placed in positions where it would appear they were in charge."
This is a letter to Clarence Gamble, from Margaret Sanger, in which she wrote,
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
For those of you that don't know, Barack Obama became a "minister" of Planned Parenthood a long time ago. He's so good at carrying out their racist, murderous, agenda against Afro-Americans and society at large, they gave him a 100% score on his voting record. Planned Parenthood is following the strategy of their racist founder, Margaret Sanger, to the letter. Planed Parenthood is saying, “We have our poster boy! Get him out in front as a lure for their women and men. Get them into our abortion clinics and dismember their children by the millions!” You say absurd? No Way! Planned Parenthood’s Valentine cards were sent out to hundreds of thousands of young people in the nation. Whose face is plainly seen waving to them with a big smile? Whose endorsement is given to this racist and calloused organization? Who is used to lure children to give credibility to its hideous plot? Barack Obama, that's who!
On July 17, 2007, Barack Obama said the following before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
"Thank You, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! ($) Thanks to all of you at Planned Parenthood for all the work that you are doing for women all across the country and for families all across the country-and for men who have enough sense to realize you are helping them, all across the country. I want to thank Cecile Richards (national president of Planned Parenthood) for her extraordinary leadership. I am happy to see so many good friends here today, including Steve Trombley and Pam Sutherland from my home state of Illinois. We had a number of battles down in Springfield from many years and it's wonderful to see that they are here today"
The first friend mentioned is, Cecile Richards, who he commends for extraordinary leadership in killing babies who are disproportionately black.
The second is, Steve Trombley, who is the president of Planned Parenthood Chicago. You can imagine how many of our young women have been victimized and whose pre-born children were killed under his supervision. His third friend he mentions is, Pam Sutherland. She is the State CEO of Planned Parenthood for Illinois. America needs to know how much these folks were, and continue today, to be in the head and actions of Senator Barack Obama. How much did he compromise his own values?
I choose here to quote Dr. Martin Luther King from his last Sunday sermon before his death:
"There comes a time when one must take the position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right. I believe today that there is a need for all people of goodwill to come with a massive act of conscience and say in the words of the old Negro Spiritual, ‘We ain't goin' study war no more.’"
This is the challenge facing modern man.
When the challenge came to Barack Obama to call on conscience, he refused. What most Americans would say no to, he chooses to say, yes to! He refused to do what The Dream called for: to allow your conscience to tell you what is right and what would be wrong. You may ask, why, but always remember this observation: Abortion is a lot like slavery; if it was not lucrative, it would not have been legal!
Pam Sutherland ... of ... Illinois Planned Parenthood ... told ABC News, "We worked with him specifically on his strategy. The Republicans were in control of the Illinois Senate at the time. They loved to hold votes on 'partial birth' and 'born alive.' They put these bills out all the time because they wanted to pigeonhole Democrats. ..."
Let me interpret. We, Planned Parenthood, told him what to say, and how to say it, so we could continue to kill infants; babies, just a few inches from birth, and those completely out of the womb that we missed! Our "colored minister" was well prepared by Planned Parenthood. Partial Birth abortion -- which I will not describe here -- but know that 80% of Americans don't want this barbaric act practiced in this country – Barack Obama voted to keep legal! The Born Alive Victims Act is a law to protect a child that was born alive after a botched abortion; a law that would require that the child would receive medical assistance. Barack Obama voted against it! Yes. Barack Obama, with an "engaging personality" is being used by the leading abortion provider in the United States to promote and execute infanticide of predominately minority babies!
And what are most Afro-Americans saying? "Yes We Can! Yes We Can! Yes We Can!" They are ignoring conscience. They are ignoring The Dream!
“I have a Dream, that one day, my four little children, will live in a world where that they won't be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character ….”
Yes, I believe it would be wonderful to have a Black man as president, but it's more important for there to be, God's man as president, and that his character would reflect my values; values reflected in the 10 Commandments and our Declaration of Independence. While most African-Americans are applauding him for the color of his skin, they have failed to look at closely the content of his character.
Martin Luther King, while sitting in a Birmingham jail, without the internet, cell phone, library resources, or communication from the outside, penned that famous prophetic letter to answer some local Pastors who questioned his use of public demonstrations. Martin, in a portion of his letter, discussed the responsibility of the church to address social issues. He said, "… the early church put an end to such evils as infanticide." Martin Luther King wrote from the passion of his spirit -- the spirit that was fighting for justice and equality. Martin called infant killing evil. Barack Obama calls it “a women's right.” Martin Luther King made his observation from a jail cell, having been put there for defending the civil rights of those whom had been denied theirs. Barack Obama has made his from caucusing with those who profit from the destruction of babies in the womb. These are men and women who ignore the silent screams of a lost generation.
Another quote from Dr. Martin Luther King that would be so appropriate here is, “The Negro cannot win if he chooses to sacrifice the future of his children for immediate comfort and safety." It is now imperative we all hear the words of this great Prophet of God. It is obvious we must reject the “Barack Obamas” who have placed us in great danger by their ideologies, a position Martin Luther King warned us we cannot expect to win! Can we trust Barack Obama's judgment? I think not.
Yes, Margaret Sanger would love Barack Obama …. Her protégés certainly do

American Christianity Looks Like the World

True wisdom comes from God. "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him." (James 1:5) This wisdom brings healthy living. "Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones." (Proverbs 3:7-8)
Open your heart and believe in God. Jesus said, "I praise you Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children." (Matthew 11:25) Shun your pride and embrace humility. "Not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were influential, not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things - and the things that are not - to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him." (I Corinthian 1:26-28

One Nation Under God!!

Charles Spurgeon once taught: It were well if we always remembered that practical godliness is the soul of godliness;that it is not talking religion, but walking religion,which proves a man to be sincere;it is not having religious tongue. but a religious heart;it is not a religious mouth, but a religious foot. The best evidence is the salvation of the soul.

Why is America hated today and not in, the not so distant past? Was it because our Country had morality and values, that the World could see. They did not agree with our principles , but they did not hate us. America is a free Country! Now the World hears of Gay Marriage allowed by rogue Courts, Pornography that is protected by Freedom of Speech, Every 1 in 2 Marriages end in divorce. The government allows the killing of 4400 babies a day.

George Washington ;
It would be peculiarly improper to omit, in this first official act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect. ... No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency. ... We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained. First Inaugural Address

This was our forefather, George Washington. He gave God the Glory for the creation of the baby country. Also adding a warning against a nation that turns their face from God!!

We cannot blame the Liberal Politicians. We have to hold ourselves to account!! If the churches in this Country didn't look just like the World, that was living in complete debauchery, Our Country would not be turning its face from God!!George Washington: smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregard the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself ordained.

Pastors: Teach the Gospel!! The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Teach it in Boldness and teach it as you life depends on it!! Because it does!! Your Life Eternal!! Please don't try to please the World, because the World will never be pleased. The ways of the World are a beast that eats everything before it and searches for more!! The Godly must standfast in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 9:13 "But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." Matthew 18:11 "For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.
