Former “Pastor” Rob Bell Goes Full Blown Apostasy: Church Should Embrace What God Calls An Abomination
There has been enough online about this counterfeit already, that I didn’t have the stomach to read the text. Matthew, Chapter 24 outlines the end times and speaks of “all these are the beginning of sorrows” (verse 8) sorrows being birth pains. As the birth nears, they become more frequent, and more intense.
In 1962, the Supreme Court prohibited officially sponsored prayer in schools in Engel v. Vitale.
One year later, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, best known for the Murray v. Curlett lawsuit, led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling ending official Bible-reading in American public schools in 1963.
In 1973, we witnessed Roe v. Wade, described by Wikipedia as “a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion.
“ The court revised their initial decision in 1980, regulating the right to abortion “until viability” [The Roe decision defined “viable” as being “potentially able to live outside the mother’s womb, albeit with artificial aid”, adding that viability “is usually placed at about seven months (28 weeks) but may occur earlier, even at 24 weeks.”]
I need not detail the current battles we are going through just to prevent full term abortions.
The homosexual activists continue their attacks on Christian businesses. This has become worse since 37 states now have same sex marriage; Massachusetts was the first, by Court Decision in May of 2004. This is listed as: 26 by Court Decision, 8 by State Legislature, 3 by Popular Vote.
Tie this in with the usurpation of parental authority, Common Core, the fiscal nightmare that is the national debt, a spineless House Speaker who gave the liberals another Trillion, -this despite our so-called victory in the last election, gaining control of both the House and Senate- Islamic infiltration in our military, Islamic cowtowing and infiltration in government by the fraud in the whitehouse, the Feds abysmal failure to ever get serious about enforcing long existing immigration laws, and last, but not least, the enactment of NDAA.
I’ve come to question the percentage of genuine conservative christians in the U.S. IF we were the majority, this could not have gotten so out of control. We have a country that is a shattered, pathetic shadow of its former self.
To conclude, this passage from Isaiah 5:20:
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
There isn’t anything I need to comment on; this post, courtesy of The Tea Party Economist, simply speaks for itself. I post it for its valuable information. X

Follow the money.
Then follow the weapons.
Then follow the mainstream media, which do not follow either the money or the weapons.
The last 2 minutes get to the point: a retired NATO commander speaks out. But to appreciate this, view the first 19 minutes.
Over a million people have seen this video. You should, too.
After you see the video, you still may not believe it. “It just can’t be true!” At that point, click the link to Seymour Hirsch’s article. Hirsch is arguably the most distinguished American journalist-investigator in the field of foreign policy. He is relentless. He has the goods on Benghazi — what was really going on, by way of Turkey. He followed the weapons.
Please forward this to “friendlies.”
Facebook would not hurt.

This from Preserve Freedom.org; I edited it due to it being an ad from one of their sponsors, but I wanted all to know of this maneuver.
A comment made on Gateway Pundit, in regard to a post concerning the feds wanting to regulate websites and blogs, hit me like a slap in the face. It’s simple common sense. Identified only as “Mike in Illinois”, he states:
“And folks still wonder why I rail against gun carry permits – folks, when you SUBMIT your inalienable, enumerated RIGHT to bear arms – reducing it to a allowed permission- what do you THINK is going to happen to every other right? Shocker – they ALL get reduced to allowed permissions. And then what happens? Oh yeah, gubmint denies permission…..
Everyone supporting gun carry permits contributes to THIS and supports THIS because this is the permit process in action – devouring one right after another. And how can you stop it? You already have given up your right to self defense from exactly this tyranny.
Permit to work. Permit to assemble. Permit to carry. Permit to talk and write. Permit to blog.
Permit to shovel snow. Permit to issue permits. Permit to have the law not apply to you. Uh huh title of nobility.
Why do Americans SUBMIT to allowing their rights to be fundamentally transformed into permissions?”
I sat and wondered what I could possibly add to this. Recalling a satirical post I first saw when I had a page on JibJab, a site for political humor, I searched the internet for “Tax his land” and came up with this posting attributed to “an anonymous author” from Godfather Politics:
Tax his land, tax his bed,
Tax the table at which he’s fed.
Tax his tractor, tax his mule,
Teach him taxes are the rule.
Tax his cow, tax his goat,
Tax his pants, tax his coat.
Tax his ties, tax his shirt,
Tax his work, tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco, tax his drink.
Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his cigars, tax his beers,
If he cries, then tax his tears.
Tax his car, tax his gas,
Find other ways to tax his ass.
Tax all he has, then let him know
That you won’t be done ’til he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers,
Tax him some more.
Tax him ’till he’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin, tax his grave.
Tax the sod in which he’s laid.
Put these words upon his tomb,
“Taxes drove me to my doom.”
When he’s gone, do not relax.
It’s time to apply the inheritance tax.
Slowly and incrementally, this is how Government in other countries usurped their citizens of any gun rights. A permit for this, an additional permit for that, a regulation on this, another regulation superceding the previous one, (and more restrictive) a new prohibition on what was formerly allowed by permit…
Then with these controls in place, they can simply refuse to issue any of the permits, and revoke the right to have firearms at all.
The same applies to the internet, websites, and blogs. A regulation here, a restriction there, a prohibition here, a stipulation on what is allowed there. BANG! No more first or second amendment rights. This is why we, and the Tea Party exist. They are relentless; ambush predators, who will squeeze the life out of us like a boa constrictor unless we stand up and say NO YOU DON’T. X
These are typical examples of the things I find in my e-mail on a daily basis. It’s enough to make one puke. Just a brief excerpt from each with my opinion.
From Patriot Update, this eyesore –
Obama Asks For Worldwide War Authority To Go After Islamic State Tuesday, February 10,2015
“President Barack Obama will soon give Congress his proposal for a new authorization for the use of military force against Islamic State fighters, and it will place strict limits on the types of U.S. ground forces that can be deployed, according to congressional sources.”
Almost six months after the president began using force against the Islamic State advance in Iraq and then in Syria, the White House is ready to ask Congress for formal permission to continue the effort. Until now, the administration has maintained it has enough authority to wage war through the 2001 AUMF on al-Qaeda, the 2002 AUMF regarding Iraq and Article II of the Constitution. But under pressure from Capitol Hill, the White House has now completed the text of a new authorization and could send it to lawmakers as early as Wednesday.
Previously, I’ve stated that war is a last resort; it is immoral, but when justified, we must prosecute war as we did in WWII. No restrictions imposed by the U.N.; we engage to totally annihilate the enemy so as to prevent any further threat. Period. http://patriotupdate.com/2015/02/obama-asks-worldwide-war-authority-go-islamic-state/
Preserve Freedom.org posted this gem –
Search Your Home without a Warrant? Supreme Court Says “Yes.”
“Some people would gladly let the police come into their homes because they have nothing to hide. And good for them.
But the ability to keep the police out of your home really has nothing to do with whether you’ve committed a crime or not.
It has everything to do with the fourth amendment and being free from unreasonable searches and seizures.
But the Supreme Court just made it so that police can arrest you (for a crime you didn’t commit) and then search your home when you’re not there… without a warrant.”
Here is a short excerpt from the Washington Post, which comprises the remaider of the post-
“Walter Fernandez flatly told Los Angeles police that they could not search his home without a warrant, saying, “You don’t have any right to come in here. I know my rights.”
But the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that Fernandez’s right to keep police out ended when he left the premises — even though that was only because police had arrested him and taken him to the station.
An hour later, police returned without a warrant but persuaded the woman Fernandez lived with, Roxanne Rojas, to let them look around. They found evidence that led to a host of charges that cost Fernandez 14 years in prison.
The court ruled 6 to 3 that when occupants of a dwelling disagree on whether they will admit police without a warrant, the objecting occupant must be physically present. That doesn’t change if police have removed the objector, the court said.”
The case is Fernandez v. California.
The protections provided for privacy in the fourth amendment still should stand as is. Thanks to activist judges and Obama’s NDAA, so much for those protections.
The Liberty Alliance posted an excerpt from Allen West’s blog; titled “Saudi-Born GITMO Prisoner To Get $1.5M From U.K. Government Upon Release”
“There has been no document of capitulation, no terms of surrender. And President Obama’s unilateral statement to “end combat operations” means little to nothing. Therefore, no onus exists to repatriate these unlawful enemy combatants to continue conducting their heinous actions against the world. And to have heard some chucklehead last week blame GITMO orange uniforms on the actions of Islamic State was perhaps one of the most absurd statements I’ve recently heard — and between words from Obama and Susan Rice this past week, that’s saying a lot.”
Following that, a story from the U.K. Telegraph; which, to quote West, “is yet another indicator we’re failing.” If you can stomach it go here: http://allenbwest.com/2015/02/saudi-born-gitmo-prisoner-will-get-1-5-million-u-k-government-upon-release/
Socalism is not the Answer, (crediting Family Security Matters) in a post made yesterday, quotes Admiral James A Lyons, former commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, warning Congress that “the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated every U.S. National Security Agency under Obama’s administration.”
The post continues “The stunning claim, from one of America’s highest-ranking career officers, has shocked Washington, D.C., and came just days before Obama would invite more than a dozen Muslim Brotherhood leaders to a private, press-banned meeting in the White House.”

Freedom Outpost sent this mail – John Kerry to Appoint Open Sodomite as US Diplomat Overseas
It’s bad enough that Mitt Romney is an invertebrate when it comes to the LGBT and other homosexual advocates; I have other reasons besides this news that make me want to bludgeon that waste of human skin John Kerry. I didn’t have the stomach to read this post; the URL is http://freedomoutpost.com/2015/02/john-kerry-appoint-open-sodomite-us-diplomat-overseas/
God help us all! X
The many threats we’re faced with all demand action. Conservatives are split on which needs to be addressed first. My personal observations on this subject may not be shared by many; however, the single most immediate threat to us as a nation, and a people is Islam.
The world changed forever on Sept 11th 2001. There are still too many of us who are in denial that our own government was involved, and hate me for even giving voice to that thought. The evidence is there, but the willfully deluded will never face up to the truth, preferring to accept the MSM version of that fateful day.
Subsequently, Congress allowed the Executive branch sweeping powers that circumvented the Constitution, powers that should NEVER have been granted in the name of “safety and security”. I suppose they forgot the warnings made by founding fathers so very long ago:
“Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin
“Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” George Washington
Even if (and I don’t share this view) George Bush was to be trusted with powers that voided the 4th amendment, this did not mean future administrations would not abuse those powers. Obama, with his NDAA, greatly magnified the already obscene “Patriot Act” which I refer to as the UN-Patriot Act .
Islam’s aim is the destruction of Israel, and the establishment of an Islamic dominated world. Sound familiar?
Congress, bunch of steers that they were, sat back and permitted the fraud at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, to permeate the government with Islamists, many with ties to Islamic terrorist groups. Using Startpage.com, simply entering “Obamas Muslim appointees” resulted in a long list of web addresses – below, a few excerpts from these results:
First this from from “Now The End Begins:” “The White House Welcomes the Muslim Brotherhood”
“… Has the Muslim Brotherhood truly infiltrated the Obama White House? Fatah certainly seems to think so. His accusations, particularly those that focus on U.S. government infiltration, are worth exploring further … After all, how better to take down an opponent than to infiltrate U.S. leadership ranks? That, in fact, has been one of the Brotherhood’s plans for years. Cal Thomas writes … In 1991, a memo written by Mohamed Akram for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood spelled out the objective of the organization. Akram said the Muslim Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions …” (from Now The End Begins: “The White House Welcomes the Muslim Brotherhood)
“…Muslim and Arab-American advocates have participated in policy discussions and received briefings from top White House aides and other officials on health care legislation, foreign policy, the economy, immigration and national security. They have met privately with a senior White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to discuss civil liberties concerns and counterterrorism strategy … Also this month, Tariq Ramadan, a prominent Muslim academic, visited the United States for the first time in six years after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reversed a decision by the Bush administration, which had barred Mr. Ramadan from entering the country, initially citing the U.S.A. Patriot Act. Mrs. Clinton also cleared the way for another well-known Muslim professor, Adam Habib, who had been denied entry under similar circumstances…”
In an article titled “Obama Advisor Defends Sharia And The Overthrow Of The U.S. Constitution,” “The Obama File” provides the following:
“…Vijay Kumar, candidate for Congress, says that according to an article in the United Kingdom’s Telegraph, in October of 2009, Barack Obama’s adivsor on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, went on Islamic television with members of the radical Islamic group Hizb ut Tahrir and defended their blatant call for the overthrow of all ‘man-made law’ — which includes the United States Constitution — and the adoption of Islamic Sharia law as ‘the source of legislation’: … Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was ‘oversimplified’ and the majority of women around the world associate it with ‘gender justice.’ … The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party … The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world … Miss Mogahed appeared alongside Hizb ut Tahrir’s national women’s officer, Nazreen Nawaz … During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular ‘man-made law,’ and the West’s ‘lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism.’ … They called for Sharia Law to be ‘the source of legislation’ and said that women should not be ‘permitted to hold a position of leadership in government.’ … Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that ‘promiscuity’ and the ‘breakdown of traditional values’ were what Muslims admired least about the West … Miss Mogahed admitted that even many Muslims associated Sharia with ‘maximum criminal punishments’ and ‘laws that… to many people seem unequal to women,’ but added: ‘Part of the reason that there is this perception of Sharia is because Sharia is not well understood and Islam as a faith is not well understood.’ …”
