Freedom to Go 'n Grow Together in Christ
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
Genesis 2:24 (NIV)
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
Matthew 19:4-6 (NIV)
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
Hebrews 13:4-7 (NIV)
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Ephesians 5:22-28 (NIV)
LGTB, Homosexuality & Related Issues
(12/31/2015) Gay Son Promotes His Foodie Career by Attacking His Christian Parents. It is pretty clear that his parents are the tolerant ones - they reject SSM but not their son. It is a bit shocking that attacking one's parents like this is good for one's career.
(12/31/2015) The public thinks the average company makes a 36% profit margin, which is about 5X too high. Of course, the public thinks that nearly 30% of the population is homosexual, which is about 10x too high. We can blame both our education system and the MSM, both primarily progressive institutions. It is in their interest to promote the notion that corporations are rolling in dough and that homosexuals make up a large portion of the population and therefore of your friends, neighbors and co-workers.
(12/29/2015) The ‘I’m Not Ready to Get Married’ Trap. Great article by Dennis Prager.
(12/28/2015) You Will Be Made To Care: Fines of up to $250K In NYC For Misgendering. It is clear that our politicians only make this nonsense worse. It seems that our government thinks that its primary purpose is to reward bad behavior and punish good behavior.
(12/28/2015) The Myth of the Pill that Makes All "Lifestyles" Safe. This is more about the doctor who lost hospital privileges for telling the truth about the LGBT health risks. Just as one example, active homosexual men are reducing their life expectancies by about 20 years (vs 10 for smokers). We are doing them no favors by not pointing this out, yet the politically correct approach is to say nothing and when pressed to blame the shorter life expectancy on 'discrimination' rather than STDs and demand that we end 'discrimination.' Political Correctness not only demands lies instead of truth, but it insists that the truth be punished.
(12/06/2015) Colorado Clerk Defies Anti-Theists' Tactics concerning SSM. I wish a lot more would do this. As it is, government employees that defend traditional marriage at work can be picked off one by one.
(12/04/2015) School pulls back plans for transgender promotion. Was warned 'no one has a moral right to compel others to participate in a fiction.' Parents do have a certain amount of power, it seems, though we need to exercise it more. What is shocking is the effort we are making as a society to normalize the abnormal. It is normal for children to sometimes wish they were the opposite sex. Virtually all outgrow those feelings. But now 'experts' wish to encourage them to hang on to those feelings - to their detriment. Where are the adults in this country? Apparently very few are involved in running our schools and colleges.
(11/28/2015) Give Me an L, Give Me a G, Give me a B, Hold the T. Apparently some of the LGB crowd is rethinking their welcoming of the T's. Here is the problem - once you start handing out special privileges to various groups, special privileges for some start to step on the toes of special privileges for others. Of course, the obvious solution of no special privileges is a non starter for these people.
(11/25/2015) Devoted Christians Divorce Less. You've probably heard otherwise, most likely because an awful lot of Christians are not 'devoted.'
(11/19/2015) Several governors refuse to relocate Syrian refugees after Paris attacks. Actually, I believe that over half have now refused. Coclorado is not among them. It always amazes me how many people are willing to 'do good' when others have to pay the price.
(11/06/2015) Marriage and the family - very important. This is a good article on the subject.
(11/04/2015) Houstonians Drop a Plumb Line in America, Flush LGBT Bathroom Bill. There are lot of articles on this, but this covers the bases.
(11/04/2015) Rev. Graham: Obama Promotes Abortion, Homosexuality – He Is ‘Taking a Stand Against God.’ Most of the commenters seem to think otherwise, though it is doubtful that many take their faith seriously (if they have an faith in the first place). I love Franklin Graham because 1) I have never seen him give an interview without including the basic gospel message, 2) because he says things that need to be said but which in our PC age most are afraid to say, and 3) because he is showing some leadership - I hope some other prominent Christians will follow suit.
(10/30/2015) Government Plans to Force Doctors to Take LGBTQ Sensitivity Training. This isn't the federal government - yet.
(10/26/2015) Ex-Transgenders And -Homosexuals Come Out Of The Closet. Impossible! Our betters have told us this cannot happen!
(10/17/2015) Legal Scholars Urge Americans to Defy Gay Marriage Ruling. These guys know what they are talking about. Eough of this 'its the law of the land now' business. The Supreme Court does not have the power to make law. Never, never give up, but keep fighting.
(10/17/2015) SF Bay area sex change doctors in very high demand. It sounds like a good business, but is it a good thing?
(10/13/2015) Border Patrol Are Now Asked to Consider Gender Identity.
(10/05/2015) ‘God Will Judge Our Country for This’: Evangelist Franklin Graham Goes After Obama for 'Celebrating Sin.' Graham will no doubt be labeled as 'intolerant' and worse, but we need more to be speaking out like this. A good case can be made that God is already judging our country.
