“This is the price we are willing to pay”

Posted by Gary on April 24, 2011

imageToday we as American Christians met in absolute freedom to worship Christ on resurrection Sunday. Sadly, many Americans who were free to worship today did not take the time to do so but spent their Lord’s Day and Resurrection Sunday doing who knows what.

Meanwhile, today’s news reports that approximately 30 evangelical Christians were arrested in China today because they were determined to hold an Easter worship service in defiance of their atheistic and communist government.

Members of the Shouwang Church (Shouwang means, “to keep watch”) were taken to various police departments and at the time of publication, no one had been released. Police refused to comment on the arrests.

Awaken from slumber

Posted by Gary on December 3, 2010

Hebrews 10:32-34 “But remember the former days, when, after being enlightened, you endured a great conflict of sufferings, partly by being made a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming sharers with those who were so treated. For you showed sympathy to the prisoners and accepted joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves a better possession and a lasting one.”

A reward has been offered to anyone who kills Christian Asia Bibi who has been convicted of committing blasphemy against Islam.

Christians in America are in great need to awaken from the slumber that prosperity and ease have lulled us into. Throughout the world and especially in the Middle East, Christians pay a tremendous price for their confession of Christ.

Christian Asia Bibi who lives in Pakistan has been found guilty of committing blasphemy against Islam and a Pakistani Islamic cleric has offered a reward of $6,000 to anyone who kills Asia who has been in prison since June of 2009.

Religious freedom, mosques and the first commandment

Posted by Gary on August 20, 2010

(I cannot remember a time previously in which I have struggled to put my thoughts on an issue together as I have in writing out the following. Many Christians if not careful will misunderstand what I am saying but if read carefully and thoughtfully I trust my meaning and the truth will be seen. America is on a crash course with the justice of God. We have willingly allowed religious freedom to mean the freedom to worship gods who do not exist and no nation which has known the truth as we have and turns from it can hope to escape God’s judgment and it may well be that Islam is the tool that God is using to punish us for our idolatry)

The world both secular and Christian is abuzz concerning the construction of a Muslim mosque within two blocks of the Twin Towers which were destroyed along with 3000 American lives on September 11, 2001.

Before continuing let me say clearly and emphatically that I do not want to see a mosque built anywhere. I also do not want to see a Hindu temple, Jewish synagogue, Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall or psychic/tarot card reading center built either. None of these beliefs acknowledge Jesus Christ as the only Savior and Lord as He claims to be and practicing them will lead to the damnation of those who reject Him. The time is getting short and one must be clear about what truth is and isn’t. If you don’t like my narrowness then your problem is ultimately with Jesus my Savior who said of Himself:

John 14:6 “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.”

Minister arrested in the U.K. for saying that homosexuality is a sin

Posted by Gary on May 3, 2010

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Revelation 2:10 “Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”

I read today that a minister in the U.K. was arrested for saying that homosexuality is a sin. Here is an excerpt from the story and you can read the article here:

Dale McAlpine was charged with causing “harassment, alarm or distress” after a homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) overheard him reciting a number of “sins” referred to in the Bible, including blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships.

The 42-year-old Baptist, who has preached Christianity in Wokington, Cumbria for years, said he did not mention homosexuality while delivering a sermon from the top of a stepladder, but admitted telling a passing shopper that he believed it went against the word of God.

Police officers are alleging that he made the remark in a voice loud enough to be overheard by others and have charged him with using abusive or insulting language, contrary to the Public Order Act.

Mr McAlpine, who was taken to the police station in the back of a marked van and locked in a cell for seven hours on April 20, said the incident was among the worst experiences of his life.

“I felt deeply shocked and humiliated that I had been arrested in my own town and treated like a common criminal in front of people I know,” he said.  “My freedom was taken away on the hearsay of someone who disliked what I said, and I was charged under a law that doesn’t apply.”

Christian campaigners have expressed alarm that the Public Order Act, introduced in 1986 to tackle violent rioters and football hooligans, is being used to curb religious free speech.
