Liberal Hypocrisy?

"White House officials met this week with envoys from the Muslim Brotherhood, in the latest sign that the Islamist group is returning to prominence in post-Mubarak Egypt after years in political exile. " Read more:

This is very strange?

We learned this week that the Liberal Democrat establishment, like the mayor of Boston, is trying to destroy of very successful business because the owner happens to believe in the Biblical definition of marriage. many Liberal Progressive groups, commentators and pundits are calling for the boycott of Chik-Fil-A to PUNISH this company and it's employees for the personal religious views of it's owner?

Whats The Problem?

Evidently these Liberals haven't checked with the White House because the current Liberal Progressive mantra on religious views of organizations is this;

"We have broadened our engagement to include new and emerging political parties and actors," Carney said Thursday. "Because of the fact that Egypt's political landscape has changed, the actors have become more diverse and our engagement reflects that. The point is that we will judge Egypt's political actors by how they act -- not by their religious affiliation."

So.....The Muslim Brotherhood believes that homosexuals should be put to DEATH and its OK to "engage" with them? REALLY?

And.... Chik-Fil-A doesn't discriminate against homosexuals in the service or hiring practices but because their owner believes a  marriage is between a man and a must be DESTROYED? REALLY?

The current President and his administration are supporting a group of people who if given the chance will KILL ALL HOMOSEXUALS on the planet!

Ah.....ATTENTION LIBERALS....I think you are boycotting the wrong organization!

God Speed!

Do We Need More Gun Laws?

 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45

 There is NO LAW that can repair the damage in one's heart! You see.....that's why Jesus came to Earth in the form of a man, lived a sinless life, allowed himself to be hung on a cross, died, buried in a tomb and ROSE TO LIVE AGAIN on the 3rd day! This was necessary to redeem man, who in the Garden of Eden, sinned and ate from the tree....

 And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." Genesis 3:22

 Man has a tendency to believe that man's laws will somehow replace the true sacrifice that was made for him. Man's nature, according to God, is to be evil without the atoning sacrifice of Jesus. Try as hard as we might we will always fall short in our own attempts! Don't get me wrong...the Bible says we should obey our laws and that the governments are put in place God. Without laws, which are based on the 1st covenant, life on Earth would be crazy!

 The point is....we can enact all the laws we want and people who are outside of Christ Jesus will continue to invent new ways to be evil!

 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:25-32

So what should we do?

 Let us not be afraid to take this opportunity to point out to those who ask.... that Jesus is the only answer to this problem! Evil will always be with us until Jesus returns for His own. This is TRUTH and is comforting to those who have eternal life in Him. It is time for the Church to be the Church! So reach out to those who are hurting and extend the Hope of redemption and eternal life that only comes through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

God Speed,

Dear President Obama,

Please know that I have had help building my small business. Through CHRIST I can do ALL Things! My relationship with Jesus connects me with everything I need to be successful while here on Earth. HE gives me the songs and the talent to record them. HE also provides the funds needed to accomplish those tasks. HE connects me with the people who support me. HE also has given me the inalienable individual RIGHTto LIFE, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. Lastly, I have received benefit from things provided by the government such as schools, roads and our amazing military...and I PAY TAXES FOR THAT... JESUS paid for the rest!

I write this morning sitting on my back porch with my dogs and cats contemplating how blessed I am.....truly BLESSED! I can't help but think back to a time when I wasn't a very good person by deed but wanted to be better....somehow?

 It was a warm night...a Tuesday night in 1997. I was invited to go fishing with a bunch of guys I didn't know...being new to West Monroe, Louisiana a jumped at the opportunity to meet new people. As I sat on the bank of the Ouachita River, watching my line for that initial soft catfish bite, a fella sat down beside me with a scruffy beard and started a conversation with the strangest question I had ever heard.... He said "Conover...have you solved your death problem yet?" I just laughed and said I didn't know I had I guess NO is the answer! That bearded fella was Jason Robertson of Duck Commander & Duck Dynasty. We fished and talked for a while and then Jase asked me if I would like to come to his house for a study the next night...I accepted. That very next night a man...Jase Robertson....took the time to do what nobody had ever done....he told me the TRUTH and he did it with LOVE. When I heard the Gospel that night it was like a huge rock had been lifted off of my back! That night I made Jesus Christ the Lord of my life and through the power of the Holy Spirit I buried the man I created....the sinful man....and God raised up a new man....the one HE CREATED! I made Jase Baptize me that night :)

 Fast forward 13 plus years....I am sitting in a Celebrate Recovery meeting at the Whites Ferry Road Church in West Monroe, LA.....on New Years Eve. Mac Owen starts off the meeting by explaining that Celebrate Recovery is for people who have ever had a hurt, habit or hang up. My friend David Magown was sitting next to me and said "Well that's everybody"....and it hit me...I said "Everybody But Jesus"! In that moment I was able to see how amazing God is! He put a song in my head and it will always be a part of who I am and be a monument to God's amazing LOVE. You see...he sent the perfect person after me even when I was so far away from Him....because he Loves us that much. I hope that if you are struggling with any kind of HURT, HABIT or HANG UP you will listen to this song and get some encouragement.

Just remember that Jesus came for you and Loves you right where you are...RIGHT NOW!

May Your Aim Be True! My friend and father in the Faith Phil Robertson, the Duck Commander, has a "thing" about saying good bye and says "May Your Aim Be True Instead. After hearing this for years God finally delivered a song to me I think truly describes the reason and feeling of the phrase. Please take a listen a drop me a comment on your take?
