To them gave he power to become the sons of God.

John 1:12

Anyone making even a quick review of Genesis will discover that God has told us more about His presence in creation and in history than about the details of human civilization.

We believe that eternity dwells in the Person of God and that the material universe came into being through God’s creation.

The first man and woman in the human race were created. They failed in their initial encounter with Satan, our archenemy. Following that, the Genesis record becomes a narrative of human failure against the abiding backdrop of God’s faithfulness.

God Himself, through the Holy Spirit, points out a universal problem: The natural brotherhood of human beings is a sinful brotherhood. It is the brotherhood of all who are spiritually lost.

But the Bible has good news. It is the revelation of a new brotherhood, the brotherhood of the redeemed! We know it in our time as the believing Church of our Lord Jesus Christ in all nations. It is a new brotherhood among men based on regeneration—and restoration!

Merciful God, I pray today for the thousands of men and women who are shackled by the chains of sin. Set them free today, Lord, by Your Sprit. Accept them as members of the “brotherhood of the redeemed.”[1]

Democratic Socialists Of America Vote To Join Anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment And Sanctions Movement, Call For Israel’s Destruction — Now The End Begins

America’s largest socialist organization overwhelmingly voted to support the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement at its biannual convention in Chicago on Saturday

What is truly on the ballot for the November midterm elections? Socialism is what’s on the ballot this November. The Democrat Party has taken a very hard turn to the Left, with many of the major candidates like Andrew Gillum and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being hardcore Progressives and Democratic Socialists. Wanna know the worst thing about all that besides the obvious? They hate Israel and the Jewish people with a passion.

“Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.” Psalm 129:5 (KJV)

Recently, the Democratic Socialists of America, the largest Socialist group in the United States, voted to join a movement dedicated to the financial ruin of the state of Israel, that they hope will lead to it’s complete and total collapse. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, or BDS, is dedicated to the establishment of a Palestinian state by destroying the Jewish state. Think about that when voting on November 6th.

FROM BREAKING ISRAELI NEWS: The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) conveniently held its convention on the Jewish Sabbath, when no observant Jews would be able to appear or protest.


BDS aims at crippling Israel’s economy as political protest against the “oppressive” state. It has been very successful in destroying employment opportunities for thousands of Palestinians who worked for Israeli companies that BDS targeted.

After the vote, which passed by 90 percent, was met with wild applause, the Democratic Socialists of America attendees began to chant a popular genocidal slogan of the pro-Palestinian movement, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The slogan calls for the establishment of a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, where Israel currently sits, suggesting that the Jewish state will vanish from the map and be replaced entirely by “Palestine.” It is commonly heard at left-wing anti-Israel campus protests.

“Democratic Socialists of America declares itself in solidarity with Palestinian civil society’s nonviolent struggle against apartheid, colonialism, military occupation and for equality, human rights, and self-determination,” reads the BDS motion.

What a Palestinian “nonviolent struggle” might look like is not made quite clear by the DSA.

The DSA claims to be the largest socialist organization in the US, with 25,000 dues-paying members. As the organization admits that America is “unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow”, it does its best to fight the capitalist system by working to achieve “equitable distribution of resources…a healthy environment…gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships”, among other goals.

Perhaps the DSA is unaware that wiping an entire country and people off the map, a vision they seem particularly excited about, could be defined by some as an “oppressive” move. READ MORE

Democratic Socialists Of America Vote To Join Anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment And Sanctions Movement, Call For Israel’s Destruction — Now The End Begins


I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

—Job 42:5-6

Yet so subtle is self that scarcely anyone is conscious of its presence. Because man is born a rebel, he is unaware that he is one. His constant assertion of self, as far as he thinks of it at all, appears to him a perfectly normal thing. He is willing to share himself, sometimes even to sacrifice himself for a desired end, but never to dethrone himself. No matter how far down the scale of social acceptance he may slide, he is still in his own eyes a king on a throne, and no one, not even God, can take that throne from him.

Sin has many manifestations but its essence is one. A moral being, created to worship before the throne of God, sits on the throne of his own selfhood and from that elevated position declares, “I AM.” That is sin in its concentrated essence; yet because it is natural it appears to be good. It is only when in the gospel the soul is brought before the face of the Most Holy One without the protective shield of ignorance that the frightful moral incongruity is brought home to the conscience. In the language of evangelism the man who is thus confronted by the fiery presence of Almighty God is said to be under conviction. KOH046-047

Lord, throughout this year I have been confronted with Your majesty. May this cause me to recognize my own sinfulness, to repent and to allow You to have the throne. Amen. [1]

Update: Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting – Number of Casualties – Suspect Identified – Update: 11 People Killed, 6 Injured… — The Last Refuge

UPDATE: 4:00pm EST Police/FBI/DOJ Briefing:  •9:54am initial call to 911; •officers dispatched 9:55am; •11 fatalities (no children); •six injuries including 4 police; •suspect used rifle and 3 handguns; •suspect Robert Bowers, no prior police contact; •suspect acted alone; •motive appears hate-crime, antisemitism.

A suspect named Robert Bowers (48) opened fire in a synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, today killing an unknown number of people. Bowers opened fire at the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue shortly before 10am.

According to an assembly of media reports, the shooter killed at least three people on the main floor of the building then went downstairs, where the congregation was gathering in the basement, and opened fire killing at least four people there.

At some point he exchanged fire with SWAT teams and injured four police officers. After being injured himself in the crossfire, Bowers surrendered to police. He is now in custody. Among the six people injured were four police officers and two congregants who are clinging to life in the hospital.

The shooter’s motive appears to be pure evil. Hatred, antisemitism, bigotry and hatred toward Jews. A man with the same name posted on the social media site Gab an hour before the shooting that he was enraged by the influx of Jewish migrants to the US and that he was ‘going in’.

Saturday Sampler: October 21 — October 27 — The Outspoken TULIP

Most evangelicals I know don’t seem to understand the significance of Reformation Day (October 31). Praise God for Michelle Lesley, who explains its importance in The Mailbag: What is Reformation Day? Please don’t ignore this blog post. And don’t ignore the Reformation.

Women like being in control. But, as Jessica Pigg writes in Biblical Woman, we need to make sure we’re Building for Eternity rather than for ourselves.

What does it mean to glorify God? Over on The Cripplegate, Jordan Standridge answers that question with three challenging examples. You might be surprised and intrigued by what he has to say.

Praise God for John Divito’s marvelous article, Living the Cessationist Life, written for Founders Ministry! As a former Charismatic who loves the Holy Spirit, I wish all my Charismatic friends understood these things about Him.

Maybe Leslie A’s When It’s Time to Reap hits home for me because I turned 65 last month.  But it sure wouldn’t hurt younger women to consider the Biblical wisdom she dispenses. Her Growing 4 Life blog features many helpful posts on how to live in ways that honor the Lord.

I’ve written a lot this week about the importance of thinking critically and Biblically. By writing The Brains God Gave You, SharaC of Into the Foolishness of Godencourages me that I’m not alone in seeing the need for Christians to evaluate things more thoroughly.

Living in the Greater Boston Area has familiarized me with the name of Anne Hutchinson, and I knew her theology was less than Blblical. But Elizabeth Prata really enriches our understanding of the damage a rebellious woman can do in Puritan Wives: Anne Hutchinson – Screeching usurper, or passionate devotee? And if you’re tempted to think an essay about a 17th Century New England woman has no relevance to current Christian controversies, remember that Elizabeth calls her blog The End Time for a reason. Who does Anne Hutchinson remind you of?

Go to The Domain for Truth to read SlimJim’s excellent article, Physical Beauty without Good Works is Dead. If you’re a single gal, read this as an encouragement. If you’re a mom to teenage or college age boys, have them read it. Several times. Until it oozes out of their pores! Did I mention it’s an excellent article?

When we say that justification is by faith, we are talking about the instrumental dative—the means by which a person is justified. Justification by faith simply means that the instrument of our justification is that with faith, and by faith, and through faith we are linked to Jesus so that all that He is and all that He has done is given to us.

A Simple Progression for Evangelizing

1) Romans 1:18-22… tells us that everyone knows that God exists and that we are all without excuse with regards to this notion.

2) Romans 2:12-16… tells us that everyone has a sense of right and wrong, and that everyone knows that they have violated virtue or sinned at some point in their lives.

3) James 4:17… gives us one of the many descriptions of what sin is in the Bible: “…it is a sin for the person who knows to do what is good and doesn’t do it.”

4) Romans 5:12-21… says that we all die because of Adam’s disobedience to God, and that we all also die because we all sin.

5) Acts 17:30-31… says that the Creator commands everyone, everywhere, to repent… because He has fixed a day when He will judge us all in righteousness by a Man (Jesus Christ, His Son, who is qualified for this because He is also God), and He has proven this by raising Him from the dead (three days after He died on the cross 2,000 years ago in Palestine).

6) Romans 10:13… offers hope by telling us that anyone who calls on the name of the Lord (Jesus Christ) will be saved from that impending, future judgement. Romans 5:12-21… also offers hope by telling us that life comes through Jesus Christ… because He obeyed.

“I GIVE unto my sheep,” saith he, “eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” What sayest thou to this, O trembling feeble mind?

TRUMP SLAMS LIBERAL MEDIA for Smearing His Supporters After “Bomb” Scares (Video) — The Gateway Pundit

President Trump slammed the liberal mainstream media on Friday night for smearing his supporters after a string of “bomb” scares.

The president was campaigning in North Carolina on Friday night.

Charlie Spiering at Breitbart.com reported:

President Donald Trump denounced the media on Friday for trying to pin the recent bomb scare on him and his supporters.
“We have seen an effort by the media in recent hours to use the sinister actions of one individual to score political points against me and the Republican party,” Trump said.

The president commented on the news at his rally in Charlotte, North Carolina after authorities apprehended the Florida man suspected of sending pipe bombs to prominent Democrats.

Trump condemned political violence and called for an end to the politics of personal destruction, especially from the media.

“Political violence must never ever be allowed in America and I’ll do everything in my power to stop it,” he said. “The media has a major role to play, whether they want to or not.”

The president paused as his supporters continued to chant “CNN SUCKS!”

“They have a major role to play as far as tone, as far as everything,” Trump said. “The media’s constant unfair coverage, deep hostility, and negative attacks only serve to drive people apart and to undermine healthy debate.”

Mail ‘Bomber’ Aftermath: Arrest of Cesar Sayoc Brings Up Several Unanswered Questions — The Gateway Pundit

Because of many unanswered questions to date, the mail bomber story is quickly being challenged on the Internet.

Mail Bomber

Two days ago packages were mysteriously found in the mail sent to top Democrats that apparently included packaged pipe bombs.  The bombs never went off but over the past two days, over ten bombs were reported by the mainstream media.  On Friday the accused was arrested.  He is an individual from Florida who apparently had a white van with Trump stickers on it.

This is where the questions begin:

Already there’s many questions on how the bomber’s packages slipped through the mail with zero postmarks or cancelled stamps and not enough postage.

Packages were sent through even after the first pipe bomb packages were mailed?

Were the packages received by the Secret Service?

How could the bombs not be detected by he postal service?

Maybe the bomber missed his calling, he should have started his own delivery service :

His family said he lived in a van – so where did he get money to do this?

His van was covered in Trump stickers –

The van is covered with decals not stickers – nice work.

With all those stickers on his van he was never pulled over?

There are rumblings that the bomber recently changed from Democrat to Republican (but this is not confirmed at this time):

But it must be real because FBI Director Wray said these bombs were not fake — And WE ALL KNOW the FBI NEVER LIES!

More questions:

** Sayoc said he never meant to hurt anyone – will the media report this?

** How much did the packages weigh that went through postal system with inadequate number of stamps?

** When will FBI admit they were fake bombs? Why the delay? Is this because of the election coming up?

What the hell is going on?

LIBERAL MEDIA OUTRAGED That Bouncer-‘Bomber’ Story Won’t Sway Trump Voters… And That CNN Still Sucks — The Gateway Pundit

Former bodybuilder and Chippendale’s manager Cesar Sayoc was arrested today in connection with the 12-13 bomb packages sent to Democrats and two former presidents this week.

Cesar Sayoc is reportedly a 56-year-old man of Native American descent living in Florida who has a long rap sheet.

The Seminole Tribe in Florida said in a statement that there are no records that Cesar Sayoc was a member, reported Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller.

His long rap sheet includes convictions for retail theft and possession of illegal steroids with intent to distribute.

Sayoc told investigators today he never wanted to hurt anyone and that his alleged “pipe bombs” would never hurt anyone.

The liberal media was SO HOPING this story of faulty bombs would sway Trump voters to change behavior ten days before the midterm election.
The media worked overtime to blame President Trump and his supporters for the dud package bombs.

So you can imagine the liberal media’s frustration when the North Carolina crowd began chanting, “CNN sucks!” at last night’s rally.
This was just totally unacceptable!

Sorry liberals. CNN still sucks and the liberal media is still a Democrat echo-chamber.
Nothing changed after the dud bombs were sent out.

And your constant belittling, verbal assaults and threats will not sway Trump voters.
Trump still wants to Make America Great Again — And so do his supporters.

Monsanto’s Cancer-Causing Chemical Glyphosate Found In Oat Bran Cereal Products From Quaker, Kellogg’s And General Mills — Now The End Begins

Some of America’s most popular breakfast foods come with a ‘hefty dose’ of  Monsanto’s weed-killing chemical Glyphosate, according to a report by the Environmental Working Group (EWG)

Monsanto is one of the most-evil corporations ever to appear in human history. They create products that are unbelievably destructive to the human body, and do it all in the name of profit. Monsanto’s Roundup weed-killer contains a killer chemical called glyphosate, and when ingested in large amounts causes cancer. Recent tests show it is in the breakfast cereal you are likely feeding to your family right now.

Interestingly, glyphosate was not found in any of the organic cereals tested.

FROM NBC NEWS MAINE: The non-profit published the results Wednesday morning from independent lab tests it commissioned on dozens of products made with oats. The tests found traces of glyphosate, the active chemical ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, in all but two of the 45 products it tested that were made with conventionally grown oats.

Additionally the EWG said 31 of the 45 samples it tested had glyphosate levels higher than what its scientists consider “protective of children’s health.” Some of those products included Back to Nature Classic Granola, Nature Valley Granola Protein Oats ‘n Honey, Quaker Dinosaur Egg Instant Oats, Great Value Original Instant Oatmeal, Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal, Lucky Charms, Quaker Steel Cut Oats and Kellogg’s Nutrigrain Strawberry Breakfast Bars.


However, the levels that EWG considers to be high doesn’t violate the legal limit set by the Environmental Protection Agency.

“I grew up eating Cheerios and Quaker Oats long before they were tainted with glyphosate,” said EWG President Ken Cook. “No one wants to eat a weed killer for breakfast, and no one should have to do so.

Cook added that they plan to petition the EPA to end uses of glyphosate that resulted in the contamination results the testing uncovered.

In a statement provided to CBS News, Monsanto pushed back against the study’s results saying that “even at the highest level reported… an adult would have to eat 118 pounds of the food item every day for the rest of their life in order to reach the EPA’s limit” for glyphosate residues.” To read Monsanto’s full statement, click here.

Monsanto weed-killing chemical found glyphosate in cereals, oat products

Lab results found glyphosate, the active chemical ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, in all but two of the 45 conventionally grown oat products that were tested.

But last week a jury in California ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million to a former school groundskeeper who said Roundup caused his cancer.

The France-based International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organization, classified glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015. California has also added glyphosate to its list of chemicals known to cause cancer. The organic products tested proved to have little, if any, of the chemical in its oats.

No glyphosate was found in Nature’s Path Organic Honey Almond granola, Simple Truth Organic Instant Oatmeal, Kashi Heart to Heart Organic Honey Toasted cereal and Cascadian Farm Organic Harvest Berry granola bars. READ MORE

Oxford Students Vote to Ban Christian Group From College as it Would Threaten Their ‘Physical, Mental Safety’ — Christian Research Network

“The move is understood to be driven by LGBT students who say they wouldn’t feel so welcome at the college gave a platform to people who are openly homophobic.”

(The Telegraph)  Students at the University of Oxford have voted to ban a controversial Christian group from one of their colleges because it would threaten their “physical and mental safety”.

The JCR at Lady Margaret Hall voted overwhelmingly in favour of banning Christian Concern from hosting a residential summer camp on the premises because their values do not align with those of the college.

Christian Concern members have protested outside abortion clinics and its founder Andrea Williams believes in the criminalisation of homosexuality.

She has also claimed that the earth is only 4,000 years old, rather than the 4.5 billion years accepted by the science community.

The group wanted to host its residential camp for young people, which aims to “train and equip the invited students on what it means to proclaim Christ in public life,” but JCR members voted to reject the residency by a margin of 81 votes to eight, with two abstentions.

According to the student newspaper OxStu, “members of the JCR who spoke in the debate recognised Christian Concern as a “real threat to the physical and mental safety of students”. One student made the point that “we’re inviting them into our home and we can’t invite people who stand against our values”. View article →
