Are Christians Disposable People?

By Angela Wittman

And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
- Rev. 19:16

I recently listened to a report on the persecution of Christians in Afghanistan. And while America supports the present government with money and troops, I believe we are complicit in this destruction of human life. Which leaves me to wonder if the world (America included) sees Christians as disposable people?

The lack of media attention for Christian persecution really speaks volumes as to the apathetic condition in our so called "Christian" nation. But of course, we are quite adept at turning a blind eye to the slaughter of people. After all, we take pride in our freedom to kill preborn babies while spending billions of tax dollars annually to support unconscionable government grants and programs Planned Parenthood profits from.

Which leaves me to wonder just how long before the American government begins to openly persecute its Christians? After all we won't bow the knee to Caesar... The Holy Spirit has given us new hearts and renewed our minds. We are no longer in the kingdom of darkness -- our King is Jesus Christ and it is His Name and honor we now live for; seeking His Glory gives our lives meaning. We cannot be silent about our Savior, nor can we bear to see His glory shared with false gods made by men's imaginations and hands. We have come from spiritual death to glorious life and we cannot keep it a secret! In fact, we must not keep it a secret! Each and every Christian is now a soldier in the Lord's army and we have been given this commission from the lips of our Lord:

Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
(Matthew 28: 16-20 KJV)

So, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let us not become weary in doing our Lord's will, but instead let us renew our commitment to bring all the nations under His Sovereign reign and to fight evil with all the strength of our faith. Then we will be blessed to hear our King say "Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world..."

A Judge and the Ten Commandments

We now face a new moral crisis, a new crisis of conscience, for voters in the United States, specifically, this time voters in the state of Alabama. That's because on December 12 the voters of that state will elect a new United States Senator in a special election made necessary in order to fill the seat that had been vacated by the current Attorney General of the United States Jeff Sessions. - Dr. Albert Mohler - President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ( Daily Briefing 11.13.17)

Dear Friends,
There has been much discussion on the Roy Moore US Senate race and recent allegations of sexual impropriety and child sexual abuse made by women who claim to have been teenagers when these events took place. Those of you who follow my blogs know that I once was a supporter of Judge Moore and theonomy in general. 
However, I had a change of heart regarding theonomy several years ago (2013), and now I am no longer a supporter of Judge Moore.  I believe there are credible reports th…

Aiming for Godly Growth in 2018

Dear Friends,

There is much busyness in the life of today's women, but if you are a Christian, you will have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. Here are some recently written articles by other authors I think you'll find valuable. I pray you'll make time to read and reflect upon the godly advice and wisdom shared in each one.

The first article is On Being a Christian Woman in the Year of Our Lord, 2018written by Abigail Dodds and posted at her blog Hope and Stay.

Abigail writes about the hunger of Christian women for sound teaching in today's churches, which is right and good, but also warns of some pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Here are some valuable excerpts from her article:
Here’s my summary: Biblically-conservative Christian women are eager to have visible, biblically-conservative leadership by women in their churches and eager to learn from gifted, female Bible teachers whether locally or nationally. Secondly, women with the gift of teach…

What on earth was Roy Moore thinking?

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I saw this tweet repeating a comment reported by the LA Times that Roy Moore made at a campaign rally last September when one of his supporters asked him when he thought the last time America was "great:"
"I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…Our families were strong, our country had a direction." (Taken from Roy Moore: Last Time America was 'Great" was During 'Slavery'; Newsweek, 12.7.2017) I realize this is being presented out of context and sensationalized, but really, folks, what on earth was Roy Moore thinking when he said it?  Regardless of how foolish making such a comment is during a public campaign event for a national office, it's just plain wrong.
