Good Works (Things Jesus Never Said)

"It's quite simple really. If you want me to love you more, do more good deeds. But the less you do, the less I love you. Any questions?"

Lifestyle Evangelism (Things Jesus Never Said)

"You don't need to use words. Simply live the Christian life in front of people, and eventually they will say, 'Hey, there's something different about him.' It works every time."

God Bless Texas

The state of Texas has passed an incredible piece of legislation, which, among other things, bans abortions after 20 weeks. The bill also requires abortion “doctors” to have admitting privileges in hospitals, and since they are almost never real doctors, this puts most abortion providers out of work and closes most abortion clinics.

Naturally the pro-abortion minority was upset by this, which is why they threw temper-tantrums for weeks leading up to the vote. Keep in mind that the rallying cry from fans of abortion is that the pro-life movement wants to send us back to the Stone Ages (before we legally murdered our young). With that in mind, here is how Texans planned to disrupt the Senate vote:

On the day of the vote jars of urine and feces and a host of feminine hygiene products were confiscated as women tried to enter the Capitol Building. Police were on the lookout for these items after receiving a tip that they were going to be used to throw at senators on the floor. That’s right. Jars of urine and feces.

What was that they were saying about us trying to send America to the Stone Ages?

Think about it. Adults actually used jars to bottle their own waste, put them in their purses, and planned on throwing them at people who disagreed with them. They have redefined tolerance and classiness.

Speaking of being classy, these women are using their own daughters as voices in the madness. One pre-teen girl was spotted holding a sign that read “Jesus isn’t a D____; so keep Him out of my V_____.” (The actual sign had the blanks filled in) An even younger girl’s sign read “If I wanted the government in my womb I would F*** a senator.”

These females can be as crude as they want to; in fact, nothing is more crude than ripping a baby apart while he is only trying to develop. But somewhere among all the indecency that this side is showing, they have lost their support. Prenatal technology has certainly contributed to the turning tide, as more and more Americans are beginning to understand what we have said all along: these children are very much alive and need to be protected.

So thank you, Texas, for moving us another step closer towards ending the murder of our youngest, most vulnerable citizens. May God bless Texas.

Justice for Trayvon

Our country is seemingly split down the middle on the issue of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, and the not guilty verdict for Zimmerman has led to the eruption of riots, break ins, flag burning, and other types of disorderly conduct. The people who are protesting are doing so under the slogan of “Justice for Trayvon.”

To be fair, Trayvon was not murdered; a jury found that Zimmerman shot him in self-defense after Trayvon had Zimmerman on the ground, straddled him, and spent at least 45 seconds bashing his head into a sidewalk. A witness who called 911 corroborates the story, and Zimmerman’s severely damaged (if not broken) nose and lacerations to the back of the head also add up. Zimmerman probably should have stayed in his car, but he never broke the law by getting out.

But the fact of the matter is that Trayvon Martin is dead at only 17 years old. The natural sentiment is that it is a shame when someone dies so young—they have their whole lives ahead of them. The other thing that has caused pulses to rise is that Martin was black, and the fact that he was shot has led leaders in the NAACP, Black Panthers, and other civil rights leaders to call for continued action in light of this “hate crime.”

Trayvon has become the face of injustice committed towards black people. In my opinion, if you want real justice for Trayvon, if you want to end the senseless killing of black people, then we need to talk about abortion.

Did you know that abortion is the leading killer of black people? Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, AIDS has claimed the lives of approximately 203,700 black people in this country. 306,300 black people have died in violent crimes (93% of the time the killer was also black), while another 370,700 have died in accidents. Cancer has claimed the lives over 1 and a half million, and another 2 and a quarter million have died from heart disease.

Are you ready for this next one? 13 million black babies have been aborted since 1973; that is more than heart disease, cancer, violence, accidents, and AIDS COMBINED! In fact, all the others add up to just over 4 million, only a third of the number of aborted babies.

Like with Trayvon Martin, these babies have their whole lives ahead of them; we should be outraged that their short lives are snuffed out. We keep hearing that Trayvon was "minding his own business," but who is more innocent than the ones in the womb?

By ending abortion we would wipe out the leading cause of death for black people. Those 13 million are the ones I want justice for.

Shiite Baptists

An Associate Pastor’s wife has made headlines for referring to the Southern Baptist Convention as “Shiite Baptists” for opposing homosexuality and the Boy Scouts’ decision to allow in homosexual scout leaders.

The Associate Pastor resigned in the wake of his wife’s article (although he claims he was fired).

This has naturally sparked another round of debates about how Christians are to view homosexuality. For the record, the Bible repeatedly condemns it, a fact that many in the church have decided to ignore.

But how fair is it to compare Baptists to Shiite Muslims? Sure, both groups view homosexuality as a sin, but Muslims teach that homosexuals are to be executed, while Christians teach that they are to be loved.

So while the media is having its field day calling Christians hate-filled homophobic bigots, don’t forget that they also champion Islam as being the religion of peace. Sure, one group kills homosexuals, and one group is called to love them, but the media has it totally backwards.

I will be the first to admit that there are sign-waving protestors who scream in the name of Christ, but as I have said so many times, that is not Christianity; that makes up an extremely small percentage of church goers.

All people, whether homosexual or heterosexual, must come to the Father the same way: through Jesus Christ. Any true Christian wants to convert, not kill, so please don’t call me a Shiite. 

So Stop Them (Google Image Series)

Atheism has the power to stop wars? That's terrific news! So stop them.

The person who made this graphic is once again falling victim to the belief that Christians cause all wars. The graphic ignores the fact that Hitler, Marx, bin Laden, Hussein, and others like them were far from being Christian.
