How Should Christians Feel About Same-Sex Marriage?
June 28, 2015

UPDATE: The Obama administration has set up rainbow-colored lights to illuminate the real-life White House. (Twitter @whitehouse)Whitehouse celebrates SCOTUS ruling


Franklin Graham’s response on white house rainbow colors

The President had the White House lit up in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. This is outrageous—a real slap in the face to the millions of Americans who do not support same-sex marriage and whose voice is being ignored. God is the one who gave the rainbow, and it was associated with His judgment. God sent a flood to wipe out the entire world because mankind had become so wicked and violent. One man, Noah, was found righteous and escaped God’s judgment with his family. The rainbow was a sign to Noah that God would not use the flood again to judge the world. But one day God is going to judge sin—all sin. Only those who are found righteous will be able to escape His judgment. That righteousness comes through faith, believing on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ who took our sins and shed His blood on the cross for each and every one. So, when we see the gay pride rainbow splashed on business advertisements and many people’s Facebook pages, may it remind all of us of God’s judgment to come. Are you ready? Are your sins forgiven?

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

He whom the son of Man sets free is free indeed.

Freedom from sin and death — that is real Liberty.

Sandra Crosnoe said: “The state cannot make something right or wrong — that is a function of the Creator. The state can however make your life miserable for not doing what it wants you to do in certain blocks of time. That is the function of power. How long does the state’s power last? Well now we are back to the Creator’s determination. When He says ‘game over’ that will be the end of that. Who is really in control? That would be the Creator. Seek Him while you may…”

God’s Warning to America — Members of Congress hear a hard-hitting speech by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn about God and America at the U.S. Capitol the day after the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments about same-sex marriages.

They Know Where You Live and What You’ve Been Doing

I want your money jewelry car boat and house (a fictional? scenario)

Federal Agent (Knock Knock)

Citizen – Hello

Federal Agent – Hello I am Joe, and I am with the Bureau Of Past Crimes. May I come in?

Citizen – Sure … I guess … What’s wrong?

Federal Agent – The State Department’s PR division asked us to look into your past. They said you have been giving the US government a hard time in your blogs and sullying its reputation.

Citizen – I thought I had a Constitutional right of free speech? And don’t you need a warrant?

Federal Agent – You certainly do, but know the government has a right to look into your past and charge you with the crimes you have committed. As far as the warrant is concerned, Fred write up a warrant.

Agent Fred – Just printed it up.

Citizen – Do I need a lawyer?

Federal Agent – If you are allowed one, the government will provide it. Fred where is my laptop?

Agent Fred – Right here sir.

Federal Agent – It says right here that you have downloaded over 500 songs from the Internet, what do you have to say for yourself?

Citizen – I never downloaded any songs.

Federal Agent – Did you listen to any songs you didn’t pay for?

Citizen – YouTube, but that- —

Federal Agent – They were downloaded into your temporary file space. Did you know that you could be fined up to $150,000 for each song?

Citizen – (About to faint) How did you know?

Federal Agent – It’s all in the NSA database, they are very thorough.

Citizen – I thought Congress outlawed the collection of personal data?

Federal Agent – That was overturned by the FISA Court. Now let’s get to the matter at hand. I understand you have a problem staying under the speed limit?

Citizen – What makes you say that?

Federal Agent – Do you take your cell phone with you when you travel in the car?

Citizen – Of course.

Federal Agent – Well because it has GPS tracking we record your routes and speeds. Our records show you have accumulated $25,380 in speeding fines just in the last year. If we go back further we can probably find some more revenues.

Citizen – What makes you think I was driving and even had the cell with me?

Federal Agent – Your voice was recorded at the same time. A persons voice is very distinctive you know. It looks like you have cheated on your taxes and owe another $2100.
Citizen – I try very hard to be accurate on my taxes.

Federal Agent – Well you know the three garage sales you had last year, you never reported the income from them. We learned that from your email. I also see that you have a big stash of gold and silver. Fred 6 months ago he talked about a secret compartment under the kitchen sink to the right. Look there.

Agent Fred – Here it is sir. Looks to be about 2 pounds of gold and maybe 5 pounds of silver.

Citizen – That’s mine, you have no right.


Federal Agent – Since you have committed fraud with your taxes, property confiscation is certainly within our right. It is called property forfeiture. We do that all the time. Fred contact the department’s real estate agent to get the sale of this house ready. I also understand that the Bureau Of Future Crimes will be visiting you soon.


A friend of mine said it well in an email recently:
We are in the valley of decision…
In the midst of living in the land of Sodom, I know the Lord has foreordained this moment in history. He has created a plumb line between the righteous and the wicked. And I know for certain, that God will not always strive with the wicked. He will let them flourish for a time, and then cut them down in a blink of an eye, just as He did in Noah, Moses, and Lot’s time.
Christians, we were born for such a time as this.
 “Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
May the Lord find us faithful as we await His return.
Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Jesus) Revelation. 2:10

May we be salt and light as long as we have breathe to do so:

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5: 13-15 KJV

Brogdon has it right again.

“I believe now is the time to share the principles of our republican party with the younger generations while encouraging them to get involved … from the young professional to the new family, the republican principles of limited government, individual liberty, and free markets provide the best solutions for up and comers.”

I have said it before and will say it again: the Republican party can be the party of freedom and common sense if they put their minds to it.

And I am not able to speak for the entire millennial generation, but all most of us want is freedom and common sense – which we are not getting from either major political party.  Such is why we are seeing 90% of new voters register as independents in the state.

But let’s keep one vital thing in mind: the objective is freedom and common…

Happy 800th Birthday Magna Carta!


It is always good to refresh our memories about history and best to do that with sources like John McManus (JBS). Special thanks to A D Curtis for the find!

Happy 800th Birthday Magna Carta!
by JBS President John F. McManus

On June 15, 1215, a group of rebel barons with swords at the ready presented England’s unpopular King John with a document that has come to be known as the Magna Carta (Great Charter). Actually drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury and named and agreed to by both parties during their meeting at Runnymede, the document elicited promises from the king to protect church rights, cancel unjust imprisonment, establish swift justice proceedings, and place limits on taxation. The Barons agreed to cease threatening the king.

Image from Wikipedia.

Historians note that neither side stood by their commitments. Pope Innocent III, almost immediately, declared it null. There followed the first “Barons’ War,” King John’s death from natural causes, and the beginning of the reign of his nine-year-old son, Henry III. It was under Henry’s authority that the document was…

A Blast from the Past: Ted Crosnoe on Isaiah 9

I hope something that I do or say will cause you to see my heavenly Father because that is the important mission. My earthly father, Ted Crosnoe, was a bible teacher; I am taking this opportunity to share a few of his teachings.  I am experimenting with Sound Cloud as a place to store some of his work.  Let me know how you like it.  I hope you enjoy and appreciate how much he loved the Lord and His Word.

This one is on Isaiah 9. It was given back in the 1960s at a bible study that met at a church before evening services.  It was recorded on cassette tapes and had two sides but the whole thing is approximately 52 minutes in length (side A + side B).

Isaiah 9 King James Version (KJV)

Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.

For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,

10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

11 Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;

12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

13 For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts.

14 Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.

15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.

16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.

19 Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.

20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:

21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
