A friend asked now that the scare* is possibly over, WHAT MATTERS?
Certainly our relationship with God and our immediate family, or church family, close friends, the character we’ve developed over a lifetime & the inherent wisdom, whether we treat people well consistently & love them more than we love ourselves, if the good we know to do triumphs over the evil we’d rather do, when our love of freedom compels us to do many good & sacrificial deeds and encourages others to do the same… These are the Things That Matter.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals not only resides in the land of nuts, fruits and flakes (California), it also has them serving on the bench.
In a decision rendered by the court of Friday [8/19/11], they upheld a high school teacher’s right to defame, degrade and debase Christianity in the classroom in front of students.
In 2007, a suit was filed by Chad Farnan against Capistrano Valley High School teacher James Corbett. Farnan’s case listed over twenty-two statements made by Corbett that were “derogatory, disparaging, and belittling regarding religion and Christianity in particular.”
Some of the statements listed in the suit were:
- ”When you put on your Jesus glasses, you can’t see the truth.”
- ”Aristotle was a physicist. … He argued that there sort of has to be a God. Of course that’s nonsense.”
- ”How do you get the peasants to oppose something that is in their best interest? Religion. You have to have something that is irrational to counter that rational approach.”
- ”People believed before the scientific revolution that the Bible was literal and that anything that happened, God did it. They didn’t understand.”
- ”The people who want to make the argument that God did it, there is as much evidence that God did it as there is that there is a giant spaghetti monster living behind the moon … .”
- ”What part of the country has the highest murder rate? The South. What part of the country has the highest rape rate? The South. What part of the country has the highest … church attendance? The South. Oh, wait a minute. You mean there is not a correlation between these things?”
- ”Well, we know abstinence doesn’t work. And we know one other thing, and that is, once people become sexually active, they often don’t stop for, like, 40 or 50 years. I mean, generally, when you start you don’t, like, have a conversion and try to become re-virginized, you know. It’s not going to happen.”
Then to my surprise I read where the judges said that Corbett “is a Christian who regularly prays and attends church services.”
In the court’s ruling, Judge Ray C. Fisher stated “exhibiting some hostility to religion do not violate the Establishment Clause if the government conduct at issue has a secular purpose, does not have as its principal or primary effect inhibiting religion and does not foster excessive government engagement with religion.”
Also in the court’s ruling it stated: “Teachers must … be given leeway to challenge students to foster critical thinking skills and develop their analytical abilities. … At some point a teacher’s comments on religion might cross the line and rise to the level of unconstitutional hostility. But without any cases illuminating the … demarcation between permissible and impermissible discussion of religion … we cannot conclude that a reasonable teacher standing in Corbett’s shoes would have been on notice that his actions might be unconstitutional.”
This is one of the most hypocritical statements I’ve seen come out of any federal court. The courts state that teachers must be given the leeway to challenge students to foster critical thinking skills but at the same time the courts keep telling teachers that they cannot discuss biblical creation or offer challenges to the theory of evolution.
In other words, it’s okay to openly ridicule and demean a student and their faith in front of other students, but it’s not okay for a teacher to openly defend the Christian faith or challenge the deified religion of naturalism.
I truly wish some legal advocacy group such as the Rutherford Institute or the Christian Law Association would take this court’s ruling and challenge it on the premise of contradicting prior court rulings over the discussion of religion in the classroom.
I also wish the public was aware that any federally appointed judge is subject to impeachment. If they were aware of it, I’m sure the impeachment list would be a lengthy one, including the three hypocrites sitting on the bench in this case.
From Tom O’Halloran’s site:
This is certainly ‘food-for-thought’. It is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish, and send it on to educate everyone. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities…
Can a good Muslim be a good American?
This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:
Theologically – no. . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia.
Religiously – no. . . Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam. (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)
Scripturally – no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
Geographically – no. . Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially – no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically – no. . Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.
Domestically – no. . . Because he is instructed to marry four Women, beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34 )
Intellectually – no. . Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt. [my emph.]
Philosophically – no. . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually - no. . Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ The Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99 excellent names.
Therefore, after much study and deliberation…. Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish, it’s still the truth.
You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.
The religious war is bigger than we know or understand……
Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.
Two were Christians were just killed outside a church in Pakistan last week, and now two more have been killed because a Qur’an was burned in Florida. Note that we have never seen anything approaching this kind of rage over the alleged “hijacking” of Islam by jihadist “extremists.”
I’d rather that the Qur’an be read than burned, but the murderous rage that the burning of a book has inspired should be illustrative, and should be condemned by Western authorities as the insanity that it is.
“Two Christians killed, churches burned: extremists respond to Florida Koran burning,” by Jibran Khan in Asia News, March 28 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Islamabad (AsiaNews) – Two believers killed, churches attacked, copies of the Bible burned: the Christian community in Pakistan is once again the victim of violence by Islamic fundamentalists, who have targeted places of worship in the country. The extremist violence was triggered by the insane act – repeatedly condemned by Christians in Pakistan and India – of the pastor Wayne Sapp, who last March 20, in Florida burned a Koran under the supervision of the evangelical preacher Terry Jones. The escalating violence has raised alarm over the fate of Asia Bibi, a symbol of the abuses committed in the name of the blasphemy law. The bishop of Islamabad / Rawalpindi defines the US pastor a “fanatic” who encourages followers to a “violent ideology”, the consequences of which have an impact “on innocent Christians” across the world.On March 25, a mob of Islamic extremists attacked a Pentecostal church in Hyderabad, killing two Christians and burning some copies of the Bible. Eyewitnesses said that the fundamentalists stormed the place of worship looking to set it on fire, but a group of believers defended the church. Security forces have fled the scene, leaving those present at the mercy of the crowd. The attackers hurled anti-Christian slogans and a feeling of anger toward the religious minority has spread. in the city The pastor of the church reports that “despite the condemnation of the burning of the Koran” the community “has come under attack because they think that we are linked to the Americans.” He emphasizes that “we are Pakistanis, who were born in this land and we do not have any kind of relationship with the United States.” “What fault did those two innocent people have – he ends – who were not Americans, but only Pakistani Christians?”.
In a second incident, the Full Gospel Assembly Church, in the Badami Bagh area of Lahore, was attacked. Again fundamentalists burned the church, threw copies of the Bible into the street and accused the Christians of blasphemy, claiming they found pieces of the Koran, not far from the church. During the attack some security guards were injured.
Meanwhile, the weekend demonstrations were repeated against the burning of the Koran wanted by Pastor Terry Jones in different cities of Pakistan – among other Peshawar, Lahore and Islamabad. The demonstrators, who burned his picture and chanted slogans and chants against the United States, called for the death of U.S. preacher. Extremists also threatened reprisals and other targeted attacks against Christians, if the U.S. government fails to take action against Pastor Jones….

ATLAS SHRUGGED PART I, a movie based on Ayn Rand’s epic novel “Atlas Shrugged”, is scheduled to open in limited release on April 15, 2011. For more information, visit http://www.AtlasShruggedPart1.com.
“There’s never been a more relevant time for the movie’s release,” remarks film producer Harmon Kaslow. “From Wisconsin’s teacher’s Union woes to Libya’s dictator’s demise, it’s as if current events were ripped right from the pages of the book.”
“It’s been a fifty-three year journey to bring Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged to the silver screen,” remarks The Atlas Society founder David Kelley. “I saw the completed film in Los Angeles and found it to be true to the spirit and message of Rand’s novel as well as uncannily timely.”
This is one of the funniest vids I’ve seen in a long time, so I share it with you. Enjoy some good belly laughs.

This morning’s devotion: ISAIAH 5:20 - Subverting Moral Principles
These falsifiers of truth pervert the basic categories of good & evil. The truth is so twisted that life & reality are turned upside down. They act quickly to acquit the perpetrator of evil & to condemn the victim or the innocent. They end up calling the arrogant most blessed & happy. (Sounds like today’s politics!)
Calling good evil & evil good define a depraved mind. In our day of moral relativism, tolerance becomes the absolute good, & under this standard, prohibition of immorality becomes intolerance and therefore evil!
We must ask ourselves where we are compromising God’s definition of good & evil in order to be acceptable in the eyes of the unbelieving world.
(paraphrased from Bible Study Fellowship)
Welcome to “Pray the Vote” 2010 — It’s Time to Pray.
Sound Bite Spirituality
Negative campaigning – also known as “mudslinging” – is nothing new. In the 1828 presidential campaign, pamphlets known as “coffin handbills” were used to attack the character of candidate Andrew Jackson. Sometimes these campaigns backfire, but more often they are very effective, even though they may be extremely inaccurate or unfair. The reason is simple: politicians can count on the fact that most voters won’t do their homework by studying the issues, the candidates’ backgrounds, and their prior decisions. Rather, what voters know about candidates is often based on nothing more than a few sound bites and opponents’ advertisements.
|Pray for Americans to be more steeped in prayer|
|Pray for candidates who will speak out against same-sex marriage.|
|Pray for America to be protected from terrorism.|

Since 2001, The Presidential Prayer Team has been the source millions of Americans have turned to for encouragement and inspiration to pray for America, our President, our national leaders and our Armed Forces.

We are to be people if integrity even when it’s difficult. The only way to make it in an unchristian environment is if you are fully devoted to God. Reflect wisdom and discernment in relationships with non-christians. Are you a light in a dark place?

I haven’t been able to confirm the truth of this story, but if it is true, it’s amusing and interesting. In the year 2008 and the University of Glasgow Press celebrated 500 years of publishing and printing books. Johannes Gutenberg perfected the art of printing by moveable type in the middle of the 15th century. Slowly, this new technology for the mass manufacture of books spread throughout Europe. A printing press was not actually established in Glasgow, Scotland until the beginning of the 17th century.
In the early days of printing books they were filled with many mistakes and inaccuracies. In fact, the books published during the first 100 years of the University press were marred by poor workmanship. They have been generally derided for their inaccuracies and bad presswork.
So, in an attempt to change their reputation they set out to publish a book that was completely error free. The developed a rather rigorous process. It began by having six different proofreaders, who used their experience to check and recheck every page for mistakes. Next, each page of the book was publically posted at the University, and a reward was offered to students or faculty members who could find any errors. After two weeks and many corrections, the publishers were sure they were ready to bring the perfect book to press. They were feeling fairly confident that they had reached their goal of producing the perfect book.
But as soon as the book hit the market they quickly found out they were wrong, the flawless book had in fact many flaws. Several errors appeared in the finished book. In fact, according to the story I read, the first error was spotted on the first page in the first sentence.
I don’t know how that’s possible. I don’t know if the one working the printing press that day had a grudge he was trying to settle; or if it was meant to be a practical joke and so just before they began printing he changed a letter or a punctuation mark. I don’t know how it happened. All I know is the perfect book wasn’t perfect.
Maybe you know the feelings all too well of striving for perfection only to be reminded how far from perfect you really are. You wanted the perfect job, and you thought you had it – but then you had to deal with co-workers, or a boss, or an employee that just irritated the tar out of you.
You wanted the perfect marriage – you worked hard at it, you sacrificed, you compromised, you did all you knew to do – but then you realized it takes two to make a marriage work.
You wanted the perfect family – but then you couldn’t have children, or tragedy struck, or financial pressures took their toll, or the child rebelled – and you were left in confusion.
You wanted to be a part of the perfect church – but then someone did something or said something that hurt and confused you. How could a Christian do that?
You wanted to be dressed perfectly for the job interview and you were until just before you walked into the office you spilled coffee all over yourself.
You wanted to make the perfect first impression, but then the alarm didn’t go off, and you ran into road construction that you didn’t know about and you showed up late.
And so it seems our desire to have the perfect life so often is filled with flaws and hurts and disappointments.
But the truth is while the University of Glasgow might not have been able to print the perfect book, there is a perfect book that tells us everything we need to know about God, salvation, life, and how to handle the disappointments and hurts that come into our far from perfect lives, marriages, families, churches.
Paul first reminded Timothy and now us when he wrote, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV)
And David challenges us when he wrote, “Blessed are they who keep His statutes and seek Him with all their heart. They do nothing wrong; they walk in His ways. You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.” (Psalm 119:2-4 NIV)
“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11 NIV)
“I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.” (Psalm 119:32 NIV)
And then one passage from that 119 Psalm:
“Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding,and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statues and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.” (Psalm 119:33-37 NIV)
If you and I would really make it our practice to go to the “perfect book” we would find absolutely everything we need for our imperfect lives.
I’m going to spend some time this week in Psalm 119. Why not join me in being reminded of the power of God’s Word and His promises to those who follow it.
The sacrificial system and creation
What was so special about Jesus that made his sacrifice relevant to all of humanity? Moreover, how would the idea of millions of years detract from his uniqueness and undermine his work on the cross. A short and succinct article from a Bible college lecturer explains why. Read Why did Jesus die?
Why most scientists believe the world is old
Experienced scientist Dr Russell Humphreys provides insight into why this idea rules. You will see that it really doesn’t have much to do with the science but a lot to do with a herd rule mentality. Read the article.
Faith of a Child
What did Jesus mean when He said, “At that time the followers came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’”
“Jesus called a little child to him and stood the child before his followers. Then he said, ‘I tell you the truth, you must change and become like little children. Otherwise, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. The greatest person in the kingdom of heaven is the one who makes himself humble like this child.’” (Matthew 18:1-4 NCV)
What did Jesus mean by that? What it mean to be humble like a child. I am persuaded humility is linked to our belief that we are not the answer to the problem or the struggle we’re facing; but that God is, so we believe what He says.
Robin Gunn stated that everything she needed to know about faith she learned in the second grade. Not when she was in second grade, but when her daughter was in second grade. She said they were moving from Reno to Portland, Oregon just a couple of days before her daughter Rachel’s first day in the second grade. Each night they would talk about her new school and they would pray together about it.
The night before school started Rachel prayed that Jesus would give her a new best friend at this school, and that her name would be Kristen. Robin said she really wanted to tell Rachel she needed to pray a little differently, but she said, “How do you tell a child you shouldn’t be so specific with God?”
The next morning Rachel stood in front of the mirror combing her hair, seemingly lost in her thoughts; and then she suddenly announced to her mom that Jesus was going to give her a new best friend named Kristen. Her mom tried a few flimsy sentences, but all fell flat. Rachel seemed undaunted. The mom drove her to school trying to figure out a way to protect Rachel from her own prayer. She said she was afraid she would damage her innocent faith when there was no Kristen in her class.
They entered the classroom, and Rachel found her name on a new desk. She sat down and began examining what was in her desk; and the mom sat down next to her and decided now was the time to explain how praying isn’t like wishing. It’s not magic. You can’t ask God for something and just expect it to materialize at your command. She was going to tell her she needed to accept whatever new friends God will bring to her.
She was just about to plunge in with the speech she had rehearsed in her mind, when out of the corner of her eye she noticed the name of the student who would occupy the desk next to Rachel. There in bold, black letters was printed Kristen.
Finally she pointed it out to Rachel and said, “Look, there is a Kristen in your class and she’s going to sit right next to you.”
And that little second grader said matter-of-factly, “I know Mom, she’s the one I prayed for.”
I think that’s what Jesus meant. I think child-like humility trusts God completely. I think thats what child-like faith looks like. Not thinking God gives us everything we ask for, or wish for, but when He speaks – believing Him. I believe God spoke to that little girl and she chose to believe Him.
What problem have you been trying to come up with a solution for? What course of action have you decided would be best for that relationship that is bending under the stress of another disagreement? What struggle have you been sweeping under the rug, hoping it would just go away?
Isn’t it time to go to God, with humility, admitting you don’t have the answer; and that you will trust Him?
Isn’t time to take the time to listen to what your Father says is best?
Spiritual Rest Stops (Pastor Fred Prince, ed. Admin)
I never really appreciated rest areas along the highway until I really, really needed one. For me, even as a kid, a trip was a mission, and part of the mission was to get to where you’re going with as few stops as possible; and get there as fast as you could. The destination was always important; the trip to the destination never was.
So, when you had to stop for gas, that also became the time when you would get food and take a potty break. It didn’t matter if you weren’t hungry or you didn’t need to use the facilities – you just knew you weren’t going to be stopping for the next 300 miles or so – until the next time you needed gas. So, at every stop you always made sure the car was full, you were full, and you were empty.
Well, I took that philosophy, which was taught to me as a child into my teen years, college years, and adult life. And Teri has spent the last 31 years or so trying to break this philosophical bent within me. For her, the trip to the destination is just as important as the destination. To me, it seems like her philosophy has always been, “Drink as much as you can, so you can stop as often as possible.” I think, I’m not sure, but I think she might think she will find decorating tips if she stops at as many gas station bathrooms as possible. And oh my, she has never met a rest area she didn’t like. We know them all. You’ve probably noticed her picture hanging in most rest areas as being a part of that great rest area family. She has even developed relationships with the people who clean the rest areas, because she has seen them so often. She walks in and they hug her, call her by name, and say, “Oh, Teri it’s so good to see you. Thank you for coming back so quickly.”
And though I’m better now than I was 30 years ago, and I stop much more often than I did back then because I’ve finally accepted the truth of the old saying, “If momma ain’t happy, then nobody’s happy.” I’ve still been known to gripe and complain and whine, and even try to negotiate an extra 15 miles from Teri’s bladder.
But even with all my whining I do have an appreciation for rest areas now, which I didn’t have when I was a young child. I have this appreciation because of something that happened when I was about 20 years old. I really, really needed a rest area, and one happened to be on the highway right when I needed it most.
I was young and in love with Teri, we weren’t married at the time. It was in the summer between college semesters. I was working full time at Rouge Steel working a swing shift. So, one week I’d be on midnights, and the next week I’d work afternoons, and then the next week I’d work days. And then I’d start all over again. It absolutely threw off my sleep patterns. I could never get used to what shift I was on, and I never knew if I was supposed to be sleeping or awake. Somehow I got by on very little sleep that entire summer, and that summer I became convinced God was calling me into the ministry and not working for 43 years at Ford Motor Company like my dad.
This one weekend I decided I’d drive the two hours or so to see the love of my life. I lived in the Detroit area, Teri lived up in Owosso, Michigan. We hadn’t seen each other in a few weeks, and I was absolutely convinced I couldn’t survive if I didn’t see her at least for a few hours. So, I took off for Owosso as soon as work was over and got cleaned up. I spent three or four hours with her that evening, and then about midnight decided I better head for home, because I had to work the next day
I hadn’t been on the expressway all that long when all of a sudden it seemed all the sleep I had missed out on that entire summer finally caught up with me. I mean it hit me like a Mack truck. My eyelids were so heavy, I was literally trying to hold them open with one hand while driving with the other hand.
Of course, I wasn’t going to stop – that went against my philosophical bent. The only thing that mattered was the destination. So, in my stubbornness I kept driving. I actually started having hallucinations. I thought I saw people walking out in the road, and the trees started dancing. I started violently shaking my head, trying to stay awake. Nothing, I mean nothing was working.
It was right then I saw a sign that said, “Rest Area – One Mile” and in that moment I decided I was going to go against my philosophical bent and stop. It didn’t matter that the car was full, and I was full, and I was empty. I really needed to stop. And so when I approached that ramp, without a bit of hesitation, I took it, parked the car, laid down, and fell asleep. A short while later I awakened and was able to drive the rest of the way home without any problem.
The rest area made the difference.
God provides us spiritual rest areas; are you going to take advantage of them?
He says, “Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)Are you going to take advantage of that or insist on handling the problem your yourself, because after all that’s your philosophical bent.
He says, “Therefore confess your sins to each one and pray for each other so you may be healed.”(James 5:16) That’s a rest area will you take advantage of it?
He says, “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy…” (Hebrews 12:14) That’s a rest area also for some of those areas of dispute you’ve had, will you take advantage of it. (Relief)
He tells husbands and wives, “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” (Ephesians 5:21)Is that the rest area you’ve been looking for in your marriage?
Isn’t time to take advantage of the rest areas God has provided for you?
