“Nothing to see here, move along…”

Politicians invariably respond to crises — that in most cases they themselves created — by spawning new government programs, laws and regulations.

These, in turn, generate more havoc and poverty, which inspires the politicians to create more programs . . . and the downward spiral repeats itself until the productive sectors of the economy collapse under the collective weight of taxes and other burdens imposed in the name of fairness, equality and do-goodism.

It's Not About the Bunny

It’s Not About the Bunny
By Martha Matthews

1 Peter 1:3-4 "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade–kept in heaven for you..."

My son and I were at the drugstore when he noticed a bunch of big Easter baskets perched high on a shelf. The store manager had placed them there while the employees where moving out the Valentine’s merchandise.

With great excitement he exclaimed, “I want one of those, Mommy, pleeeese!” The colorful baskets wrapped in shiny cellophane and filled with chocolate eggs, a fluffy white bunny and assorted toys was very enticing to my four year old. Then he said something that stopped me dead in my tracks. “Mommy, Easter is when the Easter Bunny comes.” “What did you just say?” I asked him. “Easter is when the Easter Bunny comes,” he repeated. Oh no, I thought. This is NOT good. I didn’t want him to think that an overgrown bunny bringing baskets of candy and eggs is what Easter is about. It was time for him to learn that Easter isn’t about the Bunny, it’s about the Lamb.

Setting the Record Straight

Many people are not aware that Easter has its roots in pagan religions. Hundreds of years before Christ appeared, Easter was celebrated as a festival honoring pagan fertility gods and the coming of spring. In fact the word “Easter” is the English translation of “Eostre” which is the name of an ancient Saxon fertility goddess. According to church historians, it wasn't until the second century that the rituals of these pagan festivals were altered and incorporated into a celebration of Christ’s resurrection.

Today, when many Christians celebrate “Easter” their intention is that it be a celebration of Christ’s resurrection. Yet with the growing trend toward secularizing Easter, many Christians are finding it difficult to keep their children from being influenced. This was the case with our son. One of the things we have done to combat this pressure is to start referring to Easter as Resurrection Sunday. We feel that by calling it by a Biblical name that it will help us keep a spiritual focus.

Christians Duty Towards Authority

Christians Duty Towards Authority Part 1

From video description: “How to Know that God is in control. This was captured from chat room; what, according to the Word, shall be our stance towards those in authority. Through the scriptures by the Holy Spirit, to a unity of the faith and purity of the Gospel.
Know that you aren't wrestling with the person you are wrestling the power behind them, and without submitting to God you can't win. See more at or, search for rsneaville in the ‘Search for Pal’ thing” (and
no, I'm not him)

Christians Duty Towards Authority Part 2

Living and dying in Christ

I don’t know either of these men, but I know they are my brothers.  I joy with them, I weep with them, we praise the Lord together.

Watch this video and praise God with us.

How Is It That God Desires To Be With Us!? - Bob Jennings

John 17:24 - Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

Okay, what's up with the May. 21, 2011 thing?

I did a ‘Okay, what's up with the Dec. 12, 2012 thing?’, so I thought I would also do a ‘Okay, what's up with the May. 21, 2011 thing?’

This YouTube video by RS Neaville of  Explains why Camping is incorrect.

Here is a short excerpt from Pirate Christian Radio’s Chris Rosebrough, where he reads a Newsweek article on where Harold Camping got his timing.



Now, I know that Chris is quoting from a Newsweek article so if anyone has a link to an authoritative site on Harold Camping's reasoning, I will surely post it.

Here is a site dedicated to refuting Harold Camping:

All Will Hear The Gospel.

 Revelation 14:6

And I saw another angel fly in midheaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people, 7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment has come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.


Who confirms the covenant? Daniel 9:27

Seems always some new twist. 

So some guy said (with great fervor) that the one who confirms the covenant in Daniel 9:27 is Jesus, not the antichrist.

Well, I totally disagree with that, one set of scriptures that defeats that argument is:  bible_light

Daniel 11:36 (KJV) And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

and is spoken of in:

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come the falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Jesus would never speak against God the Father so that disproves that twisting.

Here are a couple of links: (… okay only one link but if you find more, just send me a note)
