Obedience to God

Promoting Obedience to God and the Preeminence of Jesus Christ as Revealed in the Holy Bible

Refuting the atheistic, agnostic, materialistic, and humanistic cultures.

Introduction

Jesus never said it would be easy. In fact, He said it would be difficult. In John 15:20, Jesus says, “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.” Furthermore, 2nd Timothy 3:12-13 says, “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” Doesn’t this last verse ring true, considering the present state of the world? Matters have gotten worse, and Christians are persecuted more than ever before for proclaiming the Good News and upholding God’s law. We truly live in a world of darkness, where enemies conspire against us for following God. Jesus knew this would happen, as he said, “They hated me without reason” (John 15:25).

Americans Need to Heed the Following

Greene Hollowell 2012 150A

Greene Hollowell

  1. Jesus is the only way to God. It is a life and death matter for eternity. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me”. This means the people that do not recognize Jesus and have salvation through Him are lost- Jews, atheists, foreign religions and Mormons. Catholics need to know –it is not by works of righteousness, but only by the grace of God. “Salvation is not a reward for the good we have done, so none of us can take any credit for it. Then what can we boast about doing to earn our salvation? Nothing at all. Why? Because our acquittal is not based on our good deeds: it is based on what Christ has done and our faith in Him”.
  2. Abortion is the murder of a human being. It is Americas’ Holocaust. The blood of millions of babies must be calling out to God. The sad fact is the majority of our citizens support this killing and it has weakened our opposition for euthanasia, suicide and yes, infanticide. Mothers deciding to kill their own baby before birth---unbelievable!  
  3. God owns our bodies and is involved in our lives. The BIBLE tells us “Your own body does not belong to you. For God has brought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God, because He owns it”. This means we need to avoid sexual promiscuity and perversions. We cannot abuse our bodies with drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and our minds with obscenities and vulgarities. Scripture says “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,…..Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or course joking, which is out of place….”.
  4. Belief in the authority and accuracy of the HOLY BIBLE is at an all time low. Many doubt the Creation account, the six 24 hour days and the early creation (6,000 years ago), believing in the evolutionary billions of year’s time frame and doubting the long years of early man’s life span and the universal Flood. Evolution is the atheistic attempt of man to avoid and reject God and His account of Creation. The evolutionist has concocted an unbelievable account of our origins. With no satisfactory explanation of any beginning nor how the life of an animal evolved into a human with a soul, the theory remains laughable. However we shouldn’t laugh too loud because most scientist and PhD’s believe this science fiction is really a law, like the law of gravity. “Yes, they know there is a God, but they wouldn’t worship Him as God or even give Him thanks.” Christians can’t choose what part of the Bible to believe or not believe. And why should they accept an unbelievable idea developed by atheists concerning our origins? We Christians need to head the scripture- “Don’t let anyone lead you astray with empty philosophy and high sounding nonsense that comes from human thinking…”Greene Hollowell

Love God With All Your Heart: The Greatest Commandment

Dave Daubenmire | Barbwire

 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Jesus Christ as quoted in Matthew 22:36

The purpose of this commentary is not to anger you, although I am sure some of you will get angry. I have contended for quite some time that one of the greatest dangers of Christianity comes not from what the Bible teaches, but rather from what we believe and the Bible doesn’t actually teach.

So many Christians simply talk in platitudes…repeating a meaningless statement that they heard their pastor, or some other well meaning friend repeat to them. You know how they go…Christians shouldn’t judge…we are all God’s children…God helps those who help themselves…love the sinner and hate the sinner…those non-Biblical statements that makes us feel so loving and caring to repeat.

Videogame Company Tries to Block Concerns about Pornographic, Sexually Coercive Games

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE)

Steam, a popular videogame distribution platform that could be likened to the ‘Walmart of online videogame distribution,’ is selling games that normalize and promote sexual coercion and exploitation. These games, House Party and Porno Studio Tycoon, are easily available to an estimated 35 million children who buy videogames off of Steam.

Background Information About Steam:

Steam, a popular videogame distribution platform that could be likened to the ‘Walmart of online videogame distribution,’ is selling games that normalize and promote sexual coercion and exploitation. These games, House Party and Porno Studio Tycoon, are easily available to an estimated 35 million children who buy videogames off of Steam.

The House Party ‘hook up’ game is literally training its users in predatory tactics for sexual assault, and even sex trafficking, which plague real, living people offline in high schools, universities, military bases, and more. The sexual encounters are blatant animated pornography, featuring genitalia, ejaculation, and more.

BREAKING: Popular Videogame Distributor Advertises “Porno Studio” Game to Millions of Children

Stop Porn Themed Video Games 580

From the National Center on Sexual Exploitation

Videogame Company Comes Under Fire for Promoting

Sexual Coercion and Exploitation

A mainstream online videogame store, with an estimated 35 million users under the age of 18, is facilitating gamified sexual coercion and animated pornography featuring genitalia, ejaculation, to users of all ages. This is occurring through the Steam® video game distribution platform, which was developed by the Valve Corporation.

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation is calling on the videogame distributor to remove these games and is asking the public to email executives about their concerns.

“Sexual exploitation is not a game,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. “Steam, a popular videogame distribution platform that could be likened to the ‘Walmart of online videogame distribution,’ is selling games that normalize and promote sexual coercion and exploitation. These games, House Party and Porno Studio Tycoon, are easily available to an estimated 35 million children who buy videogames off of Steam.”

Noah Movie HD Official Full Version

In the time of Noah, people were going about their daily lives, not mindful of the impending destruction. Like them, are we ignoring warnings of God's coming judgment? The Bible gives us clear signs of the last days. Did you know the Scriptures say we will see:

• Flippant use of God's name
• Money-hungry preachers and rampant hypocrisy in the church
• Wars and rumors of wars
• Denial of a global flood

But surely no educated person could believe that Noah and his ark ever really existed. Wouldn't it be impossible to fit millions of species of animals into one boat? And what evidence is there (if any) for a worldwide catastrophic flood? However...what if it did all happen exactly as the Bible says? What would that mean? Who was Noah, and why is the amazing account of his life so relevant to you in the 21st century? Don't be caught unaware. Time may be very short. Will you be ready?

Christian Conservatives Name The Most Effective Cultural Change Organizations

Non Profits

The American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI)

If you want to make a difference in American culture, you are most likely to do it in conjunction with a non-profit organization. That’s one of the striking conclusions from a national survey among Christian conservatives conducted by the American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI). The survey asked people to identify the organizations, of any type, that they believe made the most positive impact on American society during 2016.

Christian Non-Profits Got It Done

The survey respondents overwhelmingly identified non-profit organizations as the entities making the greatest positive difference in American society last year. Of the five dozen organizations specified by survey respondents, only one of them – Fox News – was a for-profit organization.

The survey among SAGE Cons – an acronym for Spiritually Active, Governance Engaged Conservatives – also found that eight out of every ten of the culture-influencing organizations were Christian non-profits.

The Family Bible Revolution : Reaching the World for Jesus

Pastor Jim LangloisPastor Jim Langlois

Who is the world's greatest evangelist? How did they reach so many people for Christ? How can we effectively continue to evangelize this ever changing world? Would a flash flood of the Word be as effective as an underground watering system at the roots? Who would be the first we should target?

Is there a way to have such a thing as systemic sustainable evangelism? If so, how could we accomplish it and how much money and resources would we need to bring it to pass? How much technology will we need? Should we be concerned with both salvation and discipleship? Is it possible to accomplish both at the same time? How many systems, buildings, transportation, and personnel will we need bring it to pass? Can it be done through a volunteer system or will we need to hire staff?

We Are Looking At The Wrong Ones

Greene Hollowell 2012 150ADRUGS DEALERS: Our focus has been on the drug dealers, yes they are the lowest scum, but they are the wrong target. The guilty ones are the Americans that use the drugs.

PROSTITUTES: Our laws are against them, but they are the wrong target, the main effort should be against the boys and men who pay them for sex- the fornicators and adulators.

ABORTIONIST: Yes, the abortionist is the bottom feeder of the medical profession, they do the actual killing of the baby, but they are the wrong target.  We should focus on the girls and women who bring their babies in to be killed by them.

MALE MARINES: Yes, the male marines that look at naked women marine’s photos with or without permission are being involved with pornography which is not good. However, the trouble is with the naked women- just what did they have in mind when they posed for the picture? These women should be discharged for lack of common sense. (Assume the pictures were taken without coercion.)

Christian Voters' Impact on the Recent Election

Dr. Mark Beliles’ article on the recent presidential election gives us time to develop Christian leaders and urges us not to waste our votes.

Dr BelilesDr. Mark Beliles | ATC

The recent presidential election provided interesting insight into the impact of Christians. Trump's surprising victory with over 62.7 million votes was comprised of no less than 43 million Christians - over two thirds of his total votes! Of these, about 24 million votes were from white Evangelicals, 15 million were from white Catholics, and 4 million were from Hispanic and Black Christians. About half as many Christians voted for Clinton and of these about half were white Catholics and the other half were Blacks and Hispanics. Of her 65.4 million votes only about a third were Christians (and only about a 9 million were Evangelicals).

The ratio among Evangelicals (black and Hispanic included) is about 3 to 1, and among all Christians (including Catholics) is about 2 to 1 in favor of Trump. The gap of over 20 million Christian votes in favor of Trump and the Republican Party far exceeds any other demographic advantage by far, and in the battleground states, the turnout of Christian voters was even higher than in other areas and especially explains how Trump won the most electoral votes.

Greatest Hope When Life Gets You Down

He-is-Risen-pic-03 rsBenham Brothers

Easter weekend is over, we’ve eaten too many chocolate eggs, and now it’s time to get back to the grind. Well, at least Jason ate too many eggs.

The Mondays after holiday weekends are usually the hardest ones, because all the festivities and fun have come to an end – and the boss needs that report done, your son needs help with his homework, your daughter is late for soccer practice and the news of the day just seems so bad all the time. Dang, where is the hope?

There’s just a lot going on in life, and it can really get you down, if you don’t fully understand what we just celebrated.

Easter is far more than a tradition to be venerated. It’s a truth to be celebrated – a truth that will set our hearts free to live in total victory, no matter what’s going on around us.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now.

Don Wildmon Speech "That's What Christians Do Now"

In 1973 the Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies. Since then, we have killed more than the entire population of Canada. And it continues. A woman's choice? Half of those who have died in their mothers' wombs have been women. They didn't have a choice. It is called abortion.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now.

First it was in dingy, dirty theaters. Then, convenience stores. Then, grocery stores. Then on television. Now it is in the homes of millions via the Internet. It is called pornography.
Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now.
