No Apologies Round Two

"Few if any recent generations could sit with a Bible in one hand and their newspapers in the other and see the fulfillment of prophecy, but for us it’s almost routine." Jack Kelly

Not Perplexing- Expected

I don't normally do this, reply to another blog post on my own blog, but in reading Mr. Falwell's latest post, I find it compelling that I answer-

The Bible tells us that in the last days there will be deceivers and many Antichrists in the world. I believe this, as it is happening more and more, and as Jesus put it- the birth pangs are coming on closer and stronger with each one!

Obama's 1st Judge Pick Anti-Jesus?
By Jonathan Falwell

When Barack Obama was elected as our nation's president in November, I urged Christian America to earnestly pray for him because I believe the Bible compels us to pray for our leaders.And while I continue to pray for our president, I was perplexed this week to learn about his first judicial nominee, David Hamilton, who has been nominated to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.As noted by Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, Judge Hamilton is...
"the infamous activist judge who in 2005 ordered the speaker of the Indiana House to immediately stop the practice of 'sectarian prayers' at the opening of the legislative session. Apparently the prayers were too Christian for Mr. Hamilton."Judge Hamilton ruled,
"They should refrain from using Christ's name or title."Is he serious? As I've pointed out on several occasions in this column, this nation was founded on, and has a long history of advancing, Judeo-Christian values. Our nation's capital is bursting with Christian imagery, including the frieze of Moses and images of the Ten Commandments at the U.S. Supreme Court. Our founders fearlessly placed their faith in the Christ of the Bible.I wonder how men like Judge Hamilton sidestep the numerous statements of our founders in advancing Christian principles.What does he think of James Madison, the father of the Constitution, who wrote that...
"the belief in a God All Powerful, wise and good … is essential to the moral order of the World and the happiness of men"?Do men like Judge Hamilton simply disregard the words of Elias Boudinot, president of the Continental Congress (1777-78), who wrote,
"Our country should be preserved from the dreadful evil of becoming enemies of the religion of the Gospel, which I have no doubt, but would be the introduction of the dissolution of government and the bonds of civil society"?This is our history, the record of our founding, and I could write for hours about pro-Bible, pro-Christian statements from our founders, including John Jay, our nation's first Supreme Court chief justice (and the second president of the American Bible Society, by the way), who said,
"… it is the duty, as well as privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."Tragically, men like Judge Hamilton either ignore or revise the intent of such words. It is interesting to note that the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, where Judge Hamilton would sit if approved, overturned his decision to oust Christ's name.Mrs. Wright said,
"David Hamilton proved the liberal American Bar Association correct when they rated him as 'not qualified' for his current post. Hamilton's decisions reveal a deep disrespect for the Constitution and overinflated view of his own opinion. Senators would be derelict in their duties if they vote to promote him to do further damage to religious freedom and justice."This is a tragic move on our president's part. I was hopeful that President Obama would understand the necessity for prayer in government, specifically after I learned of the words he wrote on a paper he left at the Western Wall in Jerusalem during last year's visit there. The Israeli paper Maariv obtained the paper, which read:
Lord,Protect my family and me. Forgive me my sins and help me guard against pride and despair.Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just.And make me an instrument of your will.That is a beautiful and heartening prayer by a man who obviously believes in the power of prayer. ( Perhaps Mr. Falwell, you've never seen or considered playing to the cameras?!) Therefore, I wish to urge President Obama to carefully consider the men and women he nominates to our nation's courts. Especially at a time like this, our nation cannot be burdened by the rulings of those who would: 1) ignore our clear Judeo-Christian historic record, and 2) further alienate people who wish to exercise their religious freedoms without government intrusion. (Please tell me you are not naive enough to not know this is exactly what they want to do?!)

My Reply- As I posted it to the blog page:

While I respect pastors such as Mr. Falwell, I have to wonder how well they are discerning wolves in sheep's clothing and those of the Antichrist spirit which the Bible warns of. Now, I so not hold any higher education in theology or religious studies, so forgive me if putting someone who is not a church leader in this category. Seems to me though this man Obama has a whole lot of people deceived, even maybe some of the "elect", meaning well meaning but blind Christians.Mr. Falwell, I really mean no disrespect, but before this man was elected, I was able to see by his fruits that he is NOT a Christian. Oh, he may speak ear tickling words when it suits him, but in seeing and hearing him during the year of campaigning, it is not perplexing at all to understand his anti christian choices for his cabinet and judiciary posts.Think Mr. Falwell, please- think of this man during the campaigning. First of all, he signed bills which would deny children born during a botched abortion the right to have care- allowing them to die alone, cold, hungry and in a garbage can. Think about how he said that if his daughters "Chose" to be promiscuous and have sex before marriage, he didn't want them to "be punished with a baby'. When asked what his view on when life begins- he said "it's above my pay grade" to answer.Consider his past pro death stances, and it is not perplexing in the least that he would "choose" to appointing pro abortion people to his administration, nor should it be surprising that he has, in record time required tax money to pay for overseas abortions, proposed pro abortion agendas and court planned parenthood, and even threatening to remove the conscience clause for doctors and nurses to where they would not have to be forced against their religious convictions to perform abominations- I mean abortions.Now, it is not perplexing in the least to me that he is anti christian Mr. Falwell. Remember his oh so tolerant words about us Bible clinging bigots? How about how he replies much the same as many other "spiritual" people these days, when asked if Christianity is the only way to heaven, and if there is a literal hell. He says, "there are many paths to the same heaven.. and my god would not send people to a hell." Does that sound like the Holy Spirit talking?The man is pompous and proud. He shows no humility when so many people were and still are calling him or comparing him to messiah. I did not hear him telling people to stop, that he is just a man, and that there is a real Messiah, who is alive and coming again soon.The man spent 20 years attending, listening to an anti christian church, where he proudly had his daughters baptized. Only when it was made public the blasphemous talk of "Rev." Wright did Obama chastise the man and start looking for another church. Not to mention his "spiritual" advisers since coming to the White House- "rev." Moss, is a Jr. Wright.Mr. Falwell, I could go on and on, but I guess I've had my say. One more point though. The Bible tells us the signs of the end of times, and what to watch for. I will not be looking and putting my trust in politicians to do what is right to bring America back to her Christian roots. I am putting my trust in My Lord Jesus Christ- and seeing that perhaps the Obamas and the rest of the godless people we have in Washington are unknowingly fulfilling events which have to happen before Christ will come again. After all, I have not seen, as much as I've looked for and prayed, America is not in the Bible. I will pray for Obama and his family, for a saving grace in Christ Jesus, and the filling of the Holy Spirit- but I am also praying God's will, whether it is popular or not. God Bless you!

I am far from being the only one who questions Mr. Falwell in his judgement. It is many pastors and other supposed men and women of God who are instructed to lead the flock - who are doing just the opposite and leading many of the flock astray. In this day when there are so many things happening which show the Bible coming alive before our eyes, it is a sad thing to see so many pastors so fixated on the world and not on the soon return of Jesus.

One world Currancy- Stepping Closer to the Antichrist

Russia to Propose New Global Common Currency
By Joel C. Rosenberg...

And the Kremlin is not alone. Amidst the global economic crisis in which upwards of 45% of the world’s wealth has been lost in the last 18 months, talk of radically restructuring the global economic system is growing. In recent weeks, leaders in Europe, Africa and the Middle East have proposed scrapping the current economic order and going to a single common currency.A story in this morning’s Moscow Times – and featured prominently on the Drudge Report — is creating quite a stir in particular. At the April 2nd meeting of world leaders in London (the G20), the Kremlin is reportedly set to propose a new global common currency system that will replace the U.S. dollar as the international currency of choice.The story notes that “the Kremlin’s call for a common currency is not the first in recent days. Speaking at an economic conference in Astana, Kazakhstan, last week, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev proposed a global currency called the ‘acmetal’ — a conflation of the words ‘acme’ and ‘capital.’ He also suggested that the Eurasian Economic Community, a loose group of five former Soviet republics including Kazakhstan and Russia, adopt a single noncash currency — the yevraz – to insulate itself from the global economic crisis….Nazarbayev’s proposal did, however, garner support from at least one prominent source — Columbia University professor Robert Mundell, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1999 for his role in creating the euro. Speaking at the same conference with Nazarbayev, he said the idea had ‘great promise.’ The Kremlin document also called for national banks and international financial institutions to diversify their foreign currency reserves. It said the global financial system should be restructured to prevent future crises and proposed holding an international conference after the G20 summit to adopt conventions on a new global financial structure.”Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling for a single currency for 400 million Muslims in the Middle East. “The process of obtaining one single currency in the trade and exchanges among members, and in the next stages with other countries and neighbors, should be designed,” the Iranian leader said March 11th.Libyan leader Muammar Ghadafi, recently elected leader of the African Union, is calling for a single currency for all of Africa and has persuaded 200 tribal leaders in Africa to call him the “King of kings.” The BBC reported in February that Ghadafi “envisages a single African military force, a single currency and a single passport for Africans to move freely around the continent.”These are curious developments given that scholars of Bible prophecy have long noted that according to the Scriptures, in the “last days” the world will see the emergence of an entirely new international financial architecture, complete with a single global currency created and mandated by the leaders of Europe. The Bible indicates that no one will be able to engage in commerce without “buying in” to the new cashless system. The prophecy is found in Revelation 13:16-17, which reads:
“And he [the world leader that emerges from a revived Europe] causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one can buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.”It’s too soon to say where this will all lead, but these are certainly developments worth watching.

Not Really Goodbye

It seems like I've been at this forever. Blogging, I mean. I've talked politics, societal issues, Biblical principals and views on hot topics. I've tried to bring Biblical prophecies to a simpler understanding. I've tried to be informative and open- all to show just how relevant the Bible is to our day and age.

I hope I've made people think, hope I've opened eyes and maybe even hearts on many issues which effect us all. I've never intended to write for any kind of glory, but only out of wanting people to understand some of what a born again Bible believing Christian is all about, hoping to bring people a little closer to Jesus, and to bring truth from a Biblical perspective. I have only wanted to bring glory to the Lord- not myself. I hope I've done that.

I have made some wonderful friends through blogs, and met so many brothers and sisters in the Christian faith, that I am so blessed by you all.

I don't want to quit- don't even know if I could, even if I wanted to. Seems like there is just too much going on to keep myself quiet, but I am tired. It is too much too keep up with everything, trying to gather information and put it all out here, investigating and sifting through everything, trying to put it all together so as not to bore people. Frankly, I'm worn out. I think others are worn out even visiting- seeing the "same old, same old" serious stuff. I don't blame you. Seems like all I write about is depressing, pessimistic and dire.

I have a different hope though, than the world. I don't look to politicians to save us and our planet. I have a Savior already, and from all the seeming depressing stuff, I only see more signs of His coming so soon!

I don't want to quit- I want people who don't yet, have the same hope I do. I want people to understand that Christians aren't the only ones who see a huge change coming in the world- and I'm not talking the great obama either. The Bible- it is happening now. All the news headlines are ripped from Bible.

What I may do for a while, because I can't quit, is put out the news under Prophetic headlines and those who want to check them out can. That way, I won't put out a bunch of information and opinions of mine that people don't want to read. Please check back when you want or can, as I will try and update each week. I'm sorry that I haven't been up to doing much lately- you know who you are, and I do love you all. I just have not been myself lately.

God Bless you all, and maybe I will be back if something really big happens. Keep Israel in mind. Love you all~ Carolyn
