The Reality of Abortion. GRAPHIC IMAGE WARNING!

This article is not for the feint of heart, in fact this is not an article I would have even written just a week ago. This article is going to contain VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES of abortion at different stages of development. The purpose of this article is to educate people on the very gruesome nature of modern abortion in America and to shine a bright light on the dark underbelly of this industry.

The talking points made by pro-choice activists are simple… a fetus is not human, only a clump of tissue. It is the woman’s body and she has the right to make any decision she chooses with it.

>>> WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES AHEAD <<<

warning-graphic-images

To illustrate the ridiculous notion that a fetus is not a human there are three groups of photos below, all photos taken after an abortion procedure. The photos represent 4 stages of development: 8 weeks, 9 weeks, 10 weeks and 22 weeks.

The images are made available from AbortionNO.org. They are the copyright holder and these images have been posted here with their permission.

All of these abortions, except the last four, are perfectly legal in all 50 states. The last four (22-24 weeks) are legal in over 16 states. How many children are dismembered and ripped from their mother’s womb because they would be a financial burden? How many have chemicals injected into their hearts to kill them because they were “unplanned”?

What will it take to stop the bloodshed in our country? When will we all WAKE UP to what is really happening right in front of us? When will enough be enough?

Momo Suicide Game Is Clearly Demonic Activity

You may have read the news lately concerning a disturbing new trend, or “game” that is spreading around the world… it is being referred to as the “Momo Suicide Game”. The only reason I am speaking of it here on my blog is to raise awareness of obvious demonic activity and to warn parents who may be unaware. The demons behind this game have already been linked to several suicides around the world and it continues to spread across social media.

How does it work? There is a messaging app called WhatsApp… and on this app you can reach out and contact a user named “Momo”. This demon(s) is operating out of Japan currently. When you contact Momo you are messaged back, and sent violent images and harassed until you respond. You are “challenged” to do things like physically hurt yourself and the final challenge in the game is to take your own life.

If you choose to ignore Momo you are threatened by the demon with a curse, physical harm to your family and friends and threats to expose private information about you to the world. If you think this is a sick joke it is not, it is very real and YES people are really killing themselves as this article on Fox News just reported today.

This is not the first viral suicide game, in fact another demonic game called the Blue Whale Challenge has been linked to hundreds of suicides around the world.

For those of you who don’t believe in demons or the spiritual world around us, this is a crystal clear example of demons operating right out in the open, right in our faces, all over the news and across social networks… and skeptics do nothing except report that it is nothing more than criminal activity. Wrong. It is time for people to wake up and open their eyes to what is really happening in the world.

PARENTS please be aware of what your children are doing online. You can monitor their activity while on computers and devices and I highly recommend you do just that. It is a very dangerous world and the internet is full of all sorts of threats you are not aware of…  and your children can find these threats easier than you think.

How many news stories of suicides have we read about children who were cyber-bullied? How many sexual predators lurk around apps and games and social pages your children frequent? The very real list of dangers could go on and on and on… so what is a parent supposed to do?

Engage with your children, speak with them regularly, take an interest in what they are doing. Watch their behavior for mood swings and changes, these can be red flags. You might also consider having the kids turn in their smart phones before bed each night, to be secured in your room and limit internet access to a common room in the house during specific times.

These are just some ideas to consider, but remember the devil is prowling around like a lion looking for someone to devour. He never sleeps, He never rests. His army is always at work in the world, and we have to be Soldiers for Christ using our greatest weapon every day… prayer.

Atheists On The Attack, Again.

Even though, according to PEW Research Atheists make up a tiny 3.1% of the American population, they tend to make a lot of noise… and many times the group that makes the most noise gets heard. When I was making my rounds online today I found the following news story about an Air Force Brigadier General John Teichert, coming under fire by an Atheist organization for running a personal website calling people to Pray At Lunch for their Nation. Here is a snippet with a link to the full article at the L.A. Times…

Religious website triggers complaint against Edwards Air Force Base brigadier general

On Sunday, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation made an official demand to Defense Secretary James N. Mattis to “immediately and comprehensively” investigate Air Force Brig. Gen. E. John Teichert. The foundation, which seeks to maintain the separation of church and state in the military, provided reporters with a copy of the demand on Monday.

At issue is Teichert’s website, called “Prayer at Lunchtime for the United States,” in which the commander says he encourages “Bible-believing Americans to take time to specifically pray for our nation at lunchtime every day.”

By Sara Parvini of the L.A. Times > Read Full Article Here

plus for lunch

After reading this article and later discovering that some of these people want to see the General thrown in jail for his “crimes against humanity”… I mean for posting Christian ideas and information on a website, I decided to visit this offensive piece of virtual real estate to see what everyone was so worked up over (his website is pictured above with link).

It appears General Teichert not only has the unmitigated gall to actually post HOLY SCRIPTURE on his personal website, he goes much further… by actually asking for PRAYER REQUESTS!!!! Throw him in jail and toss away the keys!!!!! If you want further proof of his crimes,  I present to you a video where he shows his true colors…

Can you believe the nerve of this guy? AFTER he asks us to PRAY for our Nation he even resorts to saying Merry Christmas at the end of this video! Disgusting.

While I did try to insert a bucket load of sarcasm into this report, the truth is simple… Atheism is on the rise and they are getting very organized and very well funded. They will tell people all day long that Christians are intolerant bigots, who should be silenced at every turn. Yet every time we see Atheism in the news, it is another blatant showcase of intolerance… as lawsuit after lawsuit is being filed to remove all remnants of God from the public square.

So how do we approach Atheists?

For most Christians the most effective method of reaching an Atheist is with prayer. If you have a family member, friend or co-worker who claims to be an Atheist, stay in prayer over them.

You can obviously try to share your faith with an Atheist, but make sure you know how to defend your faith. Most Atheists come from a religious upbringing or background, and many of them are skilled at using common tactics and talking points against unknowing/unprepared Christians. If you monitor the comments section of this article I am sure you will see them on full display very soon.

Another way to reach Atheists (and this one is TOUGH for me) is to live your life as Jesus would and let the Gospel shine THROUGH you. Have you ever met someone, that you just knew was a Christian without actually knowing the person at all? They just live a life of pure love, joy and peace no matter what life throws at them?

Well that’s not me! But I am a work in progress. If you can live that life, and draw closer to Christ people are going to ask questions… why are you so happy all the time? And when they ask, you share.

But aside from reaching the lost, which should be the most important aspect of our time here on Earth, we also have to STAND as Christians and defend our faith. We should stand shoulder to shoulder with other Christians facing persecution and show them they are not alone. So if you are a Christian, will you take the time right now to visit Brig. Gen. Teichert’s website, facebook and twitter and show him some love and support?

If you are feeling EXTRA supportive you could even go so far as to write President Donald Trump a letter expressing your thoughts on this matter.

The Enemy No Longer Hidden

Ralliers urge spot at Arkansas Capitol for Satanic Temple’s 7½-foot-tall Baphomet statue 

Event backing satanic statue at Capitol draws protesters
by Maggie McNeary via https://www.arkansasonline.com

Scores of people attended a rally held by the Satanic Temple on Thursday in Little Rock that featured the group’s 7½-foot-tall Baphomet statue.

The event was planned by the Satanic Temple and Satanic Arkansas — which is not affiliated with the national organization — and took about two months to put together, organizer Ivy Forrester said. Forrester, like several at the rally, gave a pseudonym instead of her real name…. Read Full Article Here

Make no mistake about it my friends, the time has come in America when Satan can finally work right out in the open and we should be very concerned. Not for us, as we know the enemy can do us no harm (Luke 10:19), and God will soon crush Satan under our feet (Romans 16:20). No we should be very concerned for all of the lost souls the enemy is luring down into the pits of Hell. Let’s face it, the pathway to Hell is enticing, filled with seductive pleasures, fame and fortune, debauchery and the total freedom to indulge in any or all of the deadly pleasures this world offers.

And countless will be enticed. Countless walk freely and excitedly down this dark path as I write this and the time is short to reach them for Christ.

There was a time not long ago, when Satan was forced to work in the shadows, hidden in America behind drug addictions, mental illnesses and false religions. But in a push to accept everyone and all ideas, and in a society built on the principles of free speech and freedom of religious expression we have inadvertently created the perfect platform for Satan to reach a wide audience… all without having to hide or pretend. He can just be himself and masses will be waiting with open arms.

There is so much on the horizon, so many Biblical prophecies unfolding right before our very eyes… time is short my friends. This might seem exciting to some who welcome the Second Coming of our King, but this is also a time that has emboldened our enemy and his minions. The war is real, the war is raging and we have a job to do. We can start right now, we can go in prayer and fight with our greatest weapon, the name of Jesus Christ.

We can pray for our Nation, pray for the world, pray for the lost and even pray for the followers of our enemy Satan, that their hearts will be softened to the truth of the Gospel. Pray for our friends, families, church members and co-workers. Pray, Pray, PRAY!

Is Andy Stanley A False Teacher?

68105

Recently on Christian Headlines the following was reported:

Answers in Genesis founder and president Ken Ham is calling Georgia pastor Andy Stanley a “false teacher” for comments Stanley made in a recent sermon on the connection between Christianity and the Old Testament.

Ham’s comments on June 22 sparked a lively discussion on his social media accounts, with some taking Ham’s side and others defending Stanley.

Is Andy Stanley a false teacher?” Ham asked on his Facebook page and Twitter feed. “He compromises Genesis and certainly teaches that those of us who insist all the Bible (including OT) is true are putting a stumbling block in people’s way to hearing the gospel. But it’s Stanley who is undermining God’s Word — yes, a false teacher.

Ham also discussed Stanley’s sermon in the June 22 episode of Answers News. He posted a clip of Stanley’s sermon on his social media accounts. Stanley is senior pastor of North Point Community Church.

Many have lost faith because of something about the Bible or in the Bible – the Old Testament in particular,” Stanley says in the clip. “Once they can no longer accept all the historicity of the Old Testament, once they couldn’t go along with all the miracles, once somebody poked a hole in the Genesis creation, you know, myth – once all that went away suddenly their house-of-cards faith came tumbling down because they were taught it’s all true, it’s all God’s Word and if you find one part that’s not true [then] uh-oh the whole thing comes tumbling down.

[But] not Christianity. The Bible did not create Christianity,” Stanley adds. “The resurrection of Jesus created Christianity and launched Christianity. Your whole house of Old Testament cards can come tumbling down [but] the question is: Did Jesus rise from the dead? And the eyewitnesses said He did. I know that’s a little disturbing for some of us. I know for many of you, this is liberating. As one close friend of mine said who was in her 60s, she said, ‘I finally understand.’

Now these words are directly from the sermon that Andy Stanley preached and there is really no way around the fact that first… he is dead wrong, and second his teachings could lead people down a very dangerous spiritual path.

It is not up to man to discount the Word of God, any part of it… yet here we have a man of God, with a famous last name doing just that. This is very sad to me, and I am quite sure his father Dr. Charles Stanley has already had a discussion with him, I only wish I could have been at the table for that family chat.

Time will tell if Andy comes forward and walks these comments back, or sticks to his guns, I will be keeping an eye on it and post any updates here.

Does Your Church Need a Security Team?

As you may know from reading my blog I helped launch a Safety and Security team at my home church a couple of years ago. Our church is by no means a large church, we average about 150 people per service on weekends. But since the launch of our team, we have had several incidents that very well could have ended much worse, without our team in position.

The first incident, I was inside the worship center during first service, and the worship team was playing music while people were finding their seats. I am the team leader, and all of our members have walkie talkies when they are serving. We generally run two team members per service, plus the lead. We have one member on patrol in the parking lot, with a focus on the entryway to the children’s ministry and another inside patrolling. During a normal service I patrol all areas and monitor everything. This particular morning, Big Mike one of the Elders comes to me in the worship center, and tells me a guy with two guns is trying to get in the front door.

As I follow Mike out into the lobby, I tell him to point him out, he was a white male – mid 30’s – about 6’1″ and maybe 175 lbs. He was wearing a gray blazer, black cowboy hat and jeans, with a big Texas belt buckle. Inside the front of his Jeans are two black semi-automatic pistols tucked on either side of his belt buckle. He is standing just five feet outside the entrance, with his arms on his hips and an angry look on his face. My approach to him was my normal approach, pleasant but forceful.

“Good morning sir, how can I help you today?”

“You can help by telling me why these Communists won’t let me come in this Church and worship my savior Jesus Christ!”

“Well sir, we do not allow firearms on our property, you are free to worship along side us, but you will have to secure your pistols in your vehicle first.”

“This is America, and I am free to worship my God without having my Second Amendment rights trampled! And I will NEVER put down my guns, because I do not trust ANY man, I only trust God.”

At this point I realize I am not dealing with someone who is thinking rationally, and this could develop rather quickly into a bad situation. My eye spots my first team member observing from about 15 feet away on my right. Now I have to position this guy and myself away from the front glass doors of this church, in case he decides to pull his guns and shoot. So I move in towards him, and as I do, he backs up around a wall blocking his view of the doors (good).

“Sir, this is private property and we reserve the right to prohibit the possession of firearms on this property. If you would like I can call Metro to the scene so they can explain the law to you clearly.” At this point he gets very angry and steps into my personal space with his finger pointing less than an inch from my face.

You are the problem with this Country, Goddamn Communists trying to take away my rights, you want me to show you the two AR-15s I have in my truck?”

“No sir, and as a matter of fact, I don’t appreciate the threats, so I need you to get in your car and leave the property right now. If you don’t leave you will be arrested for trespassing.” Both of my team members are only feet away at this moment, not knowing his next move, I stay calm and keep eye contact. In my mind I realize if he draws, I have to get control of the guns, and rely on my team to neutralize him. It will only take him seconds to discharge his weapons so we will have to move fast.

He chooses differently and disengages from me, turns around and walks off to his car cursing at us and calling us Communists. He then speeds out of the parking lot. Meanwhile my team had taken plenty of photos of him and his vehicle, while he was talking with me. My next move was to notify local police of what had happened, in case he drove off to another church that day.

A Man, A Gun and the Grace of God

Another incident, that didn’t turn out nearly as good, occurred on August 11, 2017 when a naked man with a gun was found meditating at the front door of our church. There is a link to an article I wrote about this incident above.

430845E500000578-4766380-image-a-24_1502061507602

But for the purposes of this article, this man was depressed and suicidal and tried to lure the Police to kill him that day, but they only wounded him to the shoulder. He is lucky to be alive, whether he knows that or not. Another blessing, was that he showed up on Saturday when the doors were locked.

But how common are Church shootings really?

There is an article on the Gospel Coalition that details some statistics on this matter.
The full link to the article is here. But here is some of what they had to say…

The Center for Homicide Research produced a study using online newspaper archive articles to document all cases of shootings on church property within the United States from 1980 to 2005. According to the data, there was a total of 139 shootings on church property with a total death toll of 185 people. During that 25-year period there were an average of six shootings on church property every year.

While that shows gun-related violence is rare, those statistics are for all shootings that occurred on church property, including some in the parking lot and unrelated to church activity and some that involved targeting of pastors outside of church services.

Let’s narrow the data further by considering media reports involving only shootings that occur within the church, and look at the period from 2006 (just after the study by the Center for Homicide Research) to June 17, 2015—the day of the mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

During that nine-year period we find approximately 24 church shootings, an average of 2.7 per year.

If we assume that approximately three church shootings occur every year in the United States, what is the probability they could occur at any particular church? Church shootings are rarely random, and many are spillovers of domestic violence. But for our calculation let’s assume the targets are randomly distributed across all congregations.

There are an estimated 378,000 congregations in the United States, which means the likelihood of any congregation being involved in a shooting in any year is approximately one in 126,000 or 0.0000079 percent.

If we assume that each congregation meets at least once per week, there are a minimum of 19,656,000 church services every year in the United States. That means your odds of being in a church service in which a shooting occurs are at most 1 in 6,552,000 or 0.00000015 percent.

Well golly gee, that all sounds like we should all be safe as a bug in a rug! But then the real world happens and I have found through personal experience that it is not only likely that our church will have a security issue(s)… it is actually just a matter of time.

In the couple of years since our team launched, we have had two people with guns show up, several belligerent church goers, a few suspicious persons (one who just approached the alter during the sermon less than a week ago) two falls that resulted in injuries, and a few other safety and security matters.

Our team is out in the open for the most part, we have uniforms and radios, and we pray before each service. However, most days I will stay in plain clothes and monitor church activity from the background.

Praying Before Service
The Safety Team

When we first launched our team we had many people in the congregation who opposed us, thinking we looked like a security force and asking… is there a problem we need to know about? Is it safe to come to church?

My response was always simple… “No ma’am there is no problem, we are just going to be proactive and not reactive when a problem arises. We are here for your safety, if you need anything, just lets us know.”

At this point our team is well received and everyone is happy to have us around. What you should consider in your local church, is do you need a safety and security team? My answer is always a resounding YES. No matter what the size of your church, there is always a need.

Disgusted: VA Hospital Replaces Military Flags with Gay Pride Flag

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) – Flags representing the branches of the United States Military were restored to their places outside Fort Wayne’s VA Hospital Tuesday afternoon — but not until after someone swiped the LGBT “pride” flag that had gone up in their place.

Some residents and veterans expressed their outrage to ABC21 after they arrived at the hospital Tuesday morning and noticed the military flags had all been removed. On one post, instead, a rainbow pride flag flew, in honor of LGBT pride month.

Source: Fort Wayne VA temporarily removes military flags to fly LGBT pride flag


Perhaps being a U.S. Army Veteran is the driving force, but I feel disgusted over this story. The LGBT Machine is non-stop, full force, in your face… and if I could blame just ONE person, it would have to be Obama. Anyone remember this pathetic display by his administration?

This imagery was permanently etched into my memories, I mean the nerve of a sitting U.S. President to disgrace our Country in such a way. Now I may be going WAY overboard here, and if so tell me about it below… I just hope Donald Trump harnesses the power of twitter to make sure this never happens again.

So what say you?
