Five Core Values

StopAndPrayTV

Five core values that are worth living and dying for:

1. Loyalty to Christ and the Bible

A commitment to follow Christ through uncompromising obedience to His Word. Like two wheels on a bicycle, loyalty to Christ and the Scriptures work in tandem.

Lord to whom (else) shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” (John 6:68b)

2. Commitment to the Great Commission

Partnering with God in winning the lost and discipling the saved:

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19, 20)

3. Faith in the Promises of God

God has given us His “great and precious promises, so that through them you…

True Freedom Is…

StopAndPrayTV

John 8:31-36

At the time when Jesus was born, the Israelites were experiencing great oppression. They looked forward to the promised Messiah, who would bring freedom and victory.

But instead of overthrowing the Romans, Jesus spoke about respecting authority and showing love to enemies. Rather than win victory for the Jews alone, He brought blessing even to despised Gentiles (John 4:4-30; Luke 7:6-10). The people expected Him to overpower the domineering nation through battle, but He allowed those in authority to crucify Him.

So, thinking Jesus surely was not the promised Savior who would liberate God’s chosen people, the Jews rejected Him. They failed to understand that Christ was most concerned about the freedom of our hearts. He came to release us from the bondage of sin in our life, but He does not always free us from our current circumstance.

A letter I received illustrates this beautifully. After 15…

The Coal Mining Massacre America Forgot

Give Me Liberty

H/T The Smithsonian.

A dark and bloody era for coal miners.

The mountains of southern West Virginia are riddled with coal—and bullets

Child coal miners with mules in Gary, West Virginia in 1908. Working conditions were brutal for coal miners, and unionization was violently suppressed. (Library of Congress)

The gunfight in downtown Matewan on May 19, 1920, had all the elements of a high-noon showdown: on one side, the heroes, a pro-union sheriff and mayor; on the other, the dastardly henchmen of the Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency. Within 15 minutes, ten people were dead—seven detectives, two miners and the mayor. Three months later, the conflict in the West Virginia coal town had escalated to the point where martial law was declared and federal troops had to intervene. The showdown may sound almost cinematic, but the reality of the coal miners’ armed standoffs throughout the early 20th century was much darker and…

Indiana State University Muslim Professor Arrested After Making Up Anti-Muslim Threats and Assault

Give Me Liberty

H/T The Geller Report.

I am not surprised that this slime bag worked for Indiana University as the university and the city of Bloomington are a bastion of communism in the free red state of Indiana.

Even though he has been suspended I bet until he gets terminated his is still being paid.

So very often we see that hate crimes against Muslims turn out to have been faked — mostly so that Muslims can claim they’re being persecuted and that counter-terror efforts have to end. And the authorities fall for this virtually every time.

“Professor Arrested After Allegedly Making Up Anti-Muslim Threats and Assault,” by Alberto Luperon, MSN, April 22, 2017:

Aviation students at Indiana State University will need a new teacher. That’s because Professor Azhar Hussain was arrested on Friday for making up an assault, and also anti-Muslims threats. Not only might he face prison time, but his…

Revelation 7:1-10

Let us read a passage in the book of Revelation, which will keep us in mind of the twelve tribes whose story has occupied us so long—

Revelation 7:1

The most volatile powers of nature are under God’s control, and though they are also the most powerful and destructive, yet his angelic messengers have them as thoroughly under control as though they were horses restrained by bit and bridle. God has many servants, and therefore no quarter of the universe shall suffer because there are no agents to protect it. Go where we may, the sacred body-guard shall attend us.

Revelation 7:2, 3

Not a ripple ruffled the waters, not a leaf stirred on the trees, till leave was given to the winds to blow. Evils are impotent till the Lord lets them loose. No child of God need fear the terrible years to come, for until all…

An Alternative to Anger

StopAndPrayTV

It is to one’s honor to avoid strife. Proverbs 20:3

One morning in Perth, Australia, Fionn Mulholland discovered his car was missing. That’s when he realized he had mistakenly parked in a restricted zone and his car had been towed away. After considering the situation—even the $600 towing and parking fine—Mulholland was frustrated, but he decided not to be angry with the person he would work with to retrieve his car. Instead of venting his feelings, Mulholland wrote a humorous poem about the situation and read it to the worker he met at the tow yard. The worker liked the poem, and a possible ugly confrontation never took place.

The book of Proverbs teaches, “It is to one’s honor to avoid strife” (20:3). Strife is that friction that either simmers under the surface or explodes in the open between people who disagree about something.

Dear God, give me self-control…

The Corporatocracy, by Robert Gore

Not-so-naive liberals, professed conservatives, and apolitical opportunists work both sides of the street. The revolving door ensures that all concerned do well. Playing this game isn’t cheap, which serves as a barrier to entry to scrappy competitors who compete those old fashioned ways: innovation, hustle, and better products and services at lower prices.

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

cartoon-regulatory-octopus

The interests of Washington and large corporations have merged so completely they are now inseparable.

America’s large corporations and its government have merged. Or was it an acquisition? If the latter, who acquired whom? Unfortunately, the labels affixed to purely corporate combinations lose their analytical usefulness here. While the two retain their own distinct legal structures and managements, so to speak, such a close community of interest has evolved that it’s no longer possible to separate them or delineate their individual contours. Political labels are no help; the ones most often used have become hopelessly imprecise. The Wikipedia definition of “fascism” is over 8,000 words, with 43 notes and 16 references.

However, the conjoined blob is so big, rapacious, and intrusive that akin to Justice Potter Stewart’s famous non-definition of obscenity, everybody knows it when they see or otherwise come into contact with it. This article will use the term…
