- Canst thou find out the Almighty unto
perfection? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper
than hell; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer
than the earth, and broader than the sea. If he cut off, and
shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him? For he
knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then
consider it? For vain man would be wise, though man be born like
a wild ass's colt.
- If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch
out thine hands toward him; If iniquity be in thine hand, put
it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou
shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear: Because thou shalt forget
thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:
- And thine age shall be clearer than
the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea,
thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.
Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea,
many shall make suit unto thee. But the eyes of the wicked shall
fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the
giving up of the ghost." Job 11:7-20
- We believe every word in the KJV Bible and believe it is
the Word of God and that Jesus is the Christ, God Himself, who
spilled His blood on the cross for our sins and rose again to
prepare a place for those who repent and accept 'His' righteousness
as their righteousness. They are those who accept Jesus Christ
as their Lord and Savior, Jews first and then Gentiles. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,
and will sup with him, and he with me." We

- MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd
like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded
this ministry. We were Mormons (Temple Mormons) for 20 years.
We prayed to God in 1992 to allow us to do a ministry speaking
out against Scientology. Six months later God led us to the truth:
out of the cult of Mormonism. We did not know at the time we
were in a cult. No-one had witnessed to us in 20 years.
- The Holy Spirit brought us to information about all the cults
and the present development of the New World Order. We began
bringing our research to you. Because all the research was already
done, we decided to build a library within Cephas Ministry. Our
newsletters are not designed to provoke
anger which is strictly prohibited in Scripture. It is to shed
light on activities by those who would deceive those who are
recorded in the Book of Life by devious methods and systematic
- We are Bible students and have left all worldly organizations.
We attend church if the message is from the authorized KJV Bible.
The focus of these newsletters is to prove why we had to leave
the world system. We are called 'Watchmen on the Wall' which
God always had during the Old / New Testament Times.
- To understand what is happening, one has to know the Bible
to compare notes.
- The first section is about the church.
The news about churches is unedited unless indicated by Ednotes.
The church as we knew it, is undergoing disintegration. This
began on a fast track in the early nineteen sixties when the
Catholic Church produced liberal Vatican II to replace Vatican
- The trend since then has been ecumenical which is truly what
the word 'Catholicism' means: a universal religion all
inclusive and multicultural. The Bible calls for a final church
and today's church doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word
of God has undergone many changes to fit the progressive modes.
Many new Bible tranlations have brought confusion. The Bible
calls for a falling away from churches and becoming
atheistic before Jesus comes back for His Bride. The true believers
are called 'Ekklesia.' Our newsletters prove this fact and prove
that the Bible is true from beginning to end.
- The second section is about globalism
where we bring your attention to the social, political and global
trend, the so called democratizing what is left of the world.
This is a deception since the underlying new world global government
is developed by implementing sustainable development (Agenda
21). The Bible prophesies that there will be ten kings (ten
horns), each king (horn) will receive a region of the world as
a reward for work well done for the Antichrist. This is the reason
for the present development of NAU (The North American Union)
as well as the war in the Middle East. It again proves that we
are moving to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied
in the Bible. The end result will not be Democracy but a form
of Fascist Communism (Public/Private Corporations enslaving mankind).
- The third section compliments End Time
teachings because Israel is the time piece of the Biblical Prophecy.
1948 was the beginning of the figtree representing Israel, coming
back to life. Israel was allowed to return to its land. Israel
is the rock upon which the world stumbles and crumbles. We watch
and visit Israel for signs which point to the Tribulation to
confirm that we are moving into that space of time.
- Watchmen on the wall do not solicit memberships. We have
an email group that gets information when we upload new information
and newsletters whenever it is possible time wise. We love the
Lord with all our hearts and minds and we love all people God
has created but especially those who love our Lord and Savior,

will that we know the times (1 Ch. 12:32; Mat. 16:3) and that we be as wise as serpents
and harmless as doves.

Newsletter reminds us that the hour is very late, and we need
to be ready for the Lords coming. Are you sure that
you are born again? Are you living for Christ?
that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out
of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore
cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the
armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not
in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness,
not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof"

- A RIVER OF GRACE FROM BEGINNING
TO END: THATS THE MASTERPIECE OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
- Any view of this book that dwells on calamity, sorrows, or
only the coming judgments is woefully wrong. The mighty power
of the Blood and the Holy Ghost is like a river that is at flood
stage throughout this incredible book. Gods wonderful grace
and power is always like a giant reservoir where a dynamo of
electrical current is created. This reservoir of water must have
a constant flow or very shortly the electrical current would
cease. Our lives are exactly like that reservoir. Unless Gods
power is flowing we will soon be an empty vessel. It takes consecration
and a strong prayer life to be a powerful and victorious saint.
Its not you, its Him in you.
- I love the idea of this Holy Ghost River
at flood stage. With a little imagination you can see a flood
of waters carrying all within its bounds downstream and rushing
toward the open sea. Thats the picture I want you to see
of the grace of God flooding your soul. This is evident in the
Book of Revelation. John said it like this. And from
Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten
of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him
that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to
him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
(Revelation 1:5-6) Spirit filled saints change the climate wherever
they shine. They are like a river that has overflowed its banks.
- The Masterpiece we call The Apocalypse
has every great truth in the Bible revealed in a drama of reality.
You can name any doctrine of Biblical truth and find it in a
living form in this Book. I have challenged Bible students at
Prophesy Conferences to name any doctrine in the Bible and I
will show it to them in the Book of Revelation. Yet many in our
church world still ignore this great revelation. There cannot
be but one reason to reject this book. It is the rejection of
the pre-Tribulation Rapture and the two doctrines of The
Great Tribulation and The Millennial Reign
of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. Continued: http://www.pawcreek.org/salty-saints/john-the-revelator-saw-the-river-of-grace
- SWIFT AS THE LIGHTNING, MAGNIFICENT,
HOLY AND INNUMERABLE : ANGELS
- WE MUST COME TO UNDERSTAND THE INCREDIBLE NATURE OF HOLY
ANGELS. You have probably never considered the almost indescribable
nature of Gods mighty army of Angels. If the wicked multitude
that flaunt God and His righteousness could get a glimpse of
these perfectly Holy beings, they would tremble almost to insanity.
Imagine the transgender, homosexual, lesbian and the confused
multitudes facing an army of Gods Angels. Suddenly they
will see their dark deeds under the eyes of absolute holiness.
Every sin will be magnified a million times when Gods Holy
Light shines like the noon day sun.
- His mighty Angels and Cherubims will be seen shortly in number
beyond counting. Isaiah stated by the Holy Spirit, For,
behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like
a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with
flames of fire. (Isaiah 66:15) The Psalmist David said.
The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands
of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
(Psalms 68:17) Our world has become oblivious toward God and
any thought of judgment, but not for long. An end time prophecy
in Zechariah is overwhelming, And I turned, and lifted
up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots
out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains
of brass. In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second
chariot black horses; And in the third chariot white horses;
and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses. Then I answered
and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these,
my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the
four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before
the Lord of all the earth. (Zechariah 6: 1-5) These
chariots of our Lord are innumerable. Four is a number for the
activities of the Father in the earth. Continued:
- THE MAGNIFICENT CHERUBIMS AND
AWESOME ANGELS ARE ALL OVER THE SCENES AND EVENTS IN THE BOOK
- The Book begins by clearly stating that the total volume
was received from Jesus Christ and revealed to John by the Angel
Of The Lord. You can believe that there is a mighty
and special angel that is known in the Bible as The
Angel Of The Lord. In the First Testament the pre-incarnate
Christ is often called the Angel Of The Lord
or at least it is believed that it was the Lord Himself. That
may be a mystery we will soon learn the fullness about. The opening
verse states, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which
God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must
shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his Angel
unto his servant John
(Revelation 1:1) The great
interworking of Heaven shines like the sun in this masterpiece.
- Angels are named 75 times in the Twenty-Two Chapters of
Revelation. The living creatures or Cherubims, called beasts,
are named 23 times. These heavenly creatures are clearly supervising
and administering the great visions and activities. Their conversation
with John the Revelator is constant. The great host of Raptured
Saints merge in with the Angels and Cherubims and share the proceedings
together. Sometimes John talks with saints, now called Elders,
as well as the Magnificent Cherubims and Beautiful Angels. The
Father and His Son, called The Lamb, are unquestionably
the great Masters of the total Revelation.
- After the RAPTURED saints have sung their initial song
of praise and adoration, then they join the great host of Angels
and the Living Creatures in a doxology of praise. We will
join together as the heavens are sure to resound with incredible
glory. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels
round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the
number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands
of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that
was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength,
and honour, and glory, and blessing. (Revelation 5:
11-12) This Book of Scripture gives us our best picture of the
many activities of angels. Praise and singing is at the top of
the list. Lucifer, in his pre-fallen condition, is believed to
have been their music teacher.
- In the Second and Third Chapters, Angels are seen as messengers
to the churches in close fellowship with the pastors. I believe
God ordained for every true church to have a heavenly pastor
and an earthly co-pastor. Each of the messages except the last
begin with, And unto the angel of the church
(Revelation 3:1) The last church letter was no longer addressed
to the Angel and the church but to the Angel and the people because
the God appointed earthly pastors will barely exist. The Scripture
states, And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans
(Revelation 3:14) Remember this as you
look toward our present church world and the utter lack of authority
in the pulpit. Continued: http://www.pawcreek.org/salty-saints/john-the-revelator-saw-a-multitude-of-angels-and-cherubims

- THE COMING PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS
- MORMON'S NEW WORLD ORDER
- Above: The Mormon entrance to the Salt Lake City, Utah, Temple
(notice the all-seeing eye). Mormon founder, Joseph Smith, was
a 33rd degree Freemason. See, Mormonism and Freemasonry.
- ".....2. As the Mormon nation of Deseret
was carved up by the US Government between 1858 and 1912 and
pieces of it were given to other States populated by US citizens
loyal to the United States Government, the Mormon religion became
more and more desperate to have their own State, which they knew
they would need in order to maintain any semblance of religious
autonomy. Because of this, in 1890 the Mormon religion was finally
forced to issue what is known today as The 1890 Manifesto,
which was a formal decree by the Mormon religion to finally ban
the practice of polygamy within the United States and its territories.
- However, the REAL intent of the 1890 Manifesto
was to initiate an intensive public relations campaign designed
to create the appearance that the Mormons of Utah had finally
become good and loyal citizens of the United States and were
going to live in accordance with the Judeo-Christian laws of
America. Ironically, the 1890 Manifesto resulted
in a vast exodus of Mormon polygamists out of the Utah Territory
who began fleeing to places that would be hidden and protected
by God in accordance with yet another Mormon prophecy that
God revealed to Mormon President John Taylor in 1884. So, instead
of polygamy being limited just to Utah, polygamy spread like
the plague to all states in the western United States, and Canada
and Mexico, where it still flourishes today. The whole story:
- MORMON WOMEN SET OUT TO TAKE A STAND, IN PANTS
- LAS VEGAS A call for Mormon women to wear pants to
church, begun this month by a small group of women, has stretched
across the globe, but not before creating a backlash and even
generating death threats.
Wear Pants to Church, an event on Sunday, was meant
to draw attention to the role of women in the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints, using attire as a symbolic first
salvo in a larger struggle over gender inequalities.
- Though the Mormon Church has no official policy against women
wearing pants to church, many say they feel peer pressure to
wear a dress, particularly in the Western United States, organizers
said. So on Sunday, thousands of Mormon women arrived at church
in pants in places like Cambridge, England; Heidelberg, Germany;
Austin, Tex.; the Marshall Islands; and Kotzebue, Alaska. A number
of the women posted their photos on Facebook and other Web sites.
Others said they could not participate because they were fearful
of ridicule or reprimand.
- A Google map, begun so women could show they participated,
included posts like this one, from Kari White, in Sheboygan,
Wis.: felt free to be an authentic me for the first time
in my nearly 5 years of membership in the church.
- Joanna Brooks, a professor at San Diego State University
and the author of The Book of Mormon Girl: A Memoir of
an American Faith, called it the largest concerted
Mormon feminist effort in history.
- A church spokesman, Eric Hawkins, declined to comment on
the event. Organizers hope the dialogue will now expand to include
issues like the ordination of women, or women taking on more
responsibilities at church events. They also cited the pronounced
role of the Boy Scouts in the church boys routinely become
troop leaders in the organization, but girls have no similar
outlet with the Girl Scouts and the fact that young men
are expected to go on two-year missions to spread the faith,
but young women are not. The result: the vast majority of Mormon
missionaries are men. Wear Pants to Church was the
idea of Stephanie Lauritzen of Salt Lake City. She and some fellow
Mormon women who belonged to a group called All Enlisted posted
an events page on Facebook on Dec. 9. Within days, thousands
had pledged their support, but one person threatened to shoot
women who showed up in pants. Ms. Lauritzen, 26, also received
threats on her own Facebook page that are being investigated
by Facebook and the local authorities, she said. Continued: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/20/us/19mormon.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20121220
SUPPORT FOR EGYPT'S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ERODES IN AN ISLAMIST
- [Ednote: Rt.com referred to a 1 out of 4 (25%) unemployment
rate in Egypt 12.28.2012]
- AL TALBEYA, Egypt Mohamed Salamah used to vote with
the Muslim Brotherhood. But in Saturdays referendum on
the Islamist-backed constitution, Mr. Salamah says he is voting
against it, mainly because he no longer trusts the movement.They
arent even doing anything very Islamic, said Mr.
Salamah, a 24-year-old waiter in a cafe in Al Talbeya, a working-class
neighborhood in Giza across the Nile from Cairo that was an Islamist
stronghold in previous votes. They are just doing things
that arent very competent.
- Throughout the neighborhood, both loyal supporters and critics
of the Brotherhood described a deep erosion in the groups
street-level support. That was evident, they said, even before
the low turnout and narrow margin in last weekends first
round of voting on what residents here call the Brotherhood
constitution. The results so far appear to have surprised
leaders of the Brotherhood and their opposition. And even if
the draft constitution is approved, as expected, on Saturday
in the second half of the vote, the new questions about the charters
popularity and the Brotherhoods mandate could prolong Egypts
political turbulence and, as a result, defer badly needed economic
reforms as well. Residents here and around Cairo say the damage
to the Brotherhoods popularity is unrelated to its religious
ideology. It reflects a consistent trio of complaints: confusing
economic policies of the Brotherhood-led government, a near-monopoly
on power and civilian supporters use of force against opponents
in a street battle two weeks ago. Even so, many say the Brotherhood
remains the most potent political force, in part because of the
incoherence of the opposition, which has often focused on accusing
the Brotherhood of imposing religious rule. Continued: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/22/world/middleeast/in-islamist-bastion-support-ebbs-for-egypts-
ROMAN CATHOLIC CLERIC CELEBRATION PALESTINIAN STATE

BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) December 24, 2012 10:19 AM EST - The
top Roman Catholic cleric in the Holy Land celebrated the United
Nations' recent recognition of a Palestinian state in his annual
pre-Christmas homily on Monday, saying that while the road to
actual freedom from Israeli occupation remains long, the Palestinian
homeland has been born.
- Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal told followers at the patriarchate's
headquarters in Jerusalem's Old City that this year's festivities
were doubly joyful, celebrating "the birth of Christ our
Lord and the birth of the state of Palestine."
- "The path (to statehood) remains long, and will require
a united effort," added Twal, a Palestinian citizen of Jordan.
- From Jerusalem, he set off in a procession for the West Bank
city of Bethlehem, Jesus' traditional birthplace. There, he was
reminded that life on the ground for Palestinians has not really
changed since the U.N. recognized their state last month in the
Israeli-occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem and the Hamas-ruled
Gaza Strip. Continued:
- THE HYLES EFFECT A SPREADING BLIGHT
- by David W. Cloud - Close your Bibles and listen to
me (Jack Hyles). - The original title of this book, which
was first published in March 2012, was The Two Jacks, referring
to the ministry and influence of Jack Hyles and his son-in-law
Jack Schaap, who took the pastorate of First Baptist Church of
Hammond, Indiana, upon Hyles death.
- We have changed the name to The Hyles Effect: A Spreading
Blight, because the book is still relevant, in spite of the fact
that Jack Hyles is dead and Jack Schaap is heading to prison.
This is for the simple reason that Hyles vast influence
continues unabated and we see it as a spiritual blight. One pastor
made the following comment about the new title:
- Having farmed, one of the things we had to fight against
was blight. Blight will soon ruin a vegetable crop like tomatoes,
melons or cucumbers. Blight was our deadly enemy.
- This book has never been just about First Baptist of Hammond.
Its about a large number of IFB churches that have been
influenced by the cultic pattern modeled at First Baptist and
its about large numbers of IFB preachers who have not spoken
out against it but rather have chosen to bask in the glory of
bigness rather than take a stand for truth.
- CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP MUSIC IS A WARNING A MINISTRY IS HEADING
IN THE WRONG DIRECTION
- "... And justifying the use of contemporary worship
is a loud warning that a ministry is heading in the wrong direction,
yea, a most dangerous direction. If you justify it, you are justifying
the end-time apostasy that ALL of the mainstream contemporary
worship musicians represent. You are justifying the breakdown
in biblical separatism. If you justify it, you will use more
and more of it, and you will give your family and church an appetite
for it, and you will build bridges to that extremely dangerous
world: bridges over which your church will eventually walk. Those
who are justifying the use of contemporary worship music are
playing with fire, and they will be accountable to God for their
unwise decisions. (See The Directory of Contemporary Worship

- ELEPHANT DUNG COFFEE, THE WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE
- By Alex Johnston - December 11, 2012 - "... More than
20 elephants in Northern Thailands Golden Triangle region
produce the worlds most expensive coffee beans. The elephants
are being fed coffee cherries produced on nearby plantations,
and then mahouts (elephant drivers) and their wives pluck the
beans from the dung. The beans are then sun-dried and roasted.
The coffee, called Black Ivory, is said to have an earthy and
smooth flavor, but costs $50 for a cup and $500 per pound. It
was first unveiled last month at several luxury hotels in Thailand,
Maldives, and United Arab Emirates. The total supply for 2012
is 50 kg (110 pounds) with hopes for that to increase in 2013,
depending on manpower. To make a single kilogram of roasted coffee
(2.2. pounds), approximately 10,000 beans are picked. Some are
lost in the process because elephants chew them. Whole story:
- ONE NATION UNDER GOD?
By MOLLY WORTHEN - Published: December 22, 2012 - THIS week millions
of Chreasters Americans who attend church
only on Christmas and Easter will crowd into pews to sing
carols and renew their vague relationship with the Christian
God. This year, there may be fewer Chreasters than ever. A growing
number of nones live in our midst: those who say
they have no religious affiliation at all. An October Pew Research
Center poll revealed that they now account for 20 percent of
the population, up from 16 percent in 2008.
Avoiding church does not excuse Americans from marking the birth
of Jesus, however. Most of us have no choice but to stay home
from work or school and if you complain about this glaring
exception to the separation between church and state, you must
be a scrooge with no heart for tradition. Christmas has been
a federal holiday for 142 years. Yet Christianitys preferential
place in our culture and civil law came under fire this year,
and not simply because more Americans reject institutional religion.
The Obama administration subtly worked to expand the scope of
protected civil rights to include access to legal marriage and
birth control. Catholic bishops and evangelical activists declared
that Washington was running roughshod over religious liberty
and abandoning the countrys founding values, while their
opponents accused them of imposing one set of religious prejudices
on an increasingly pluralistic population. The Christian consensus
that long governed our public square is disintegrating. American
secularism is at a crossroads.
- The narrative on the right is this: Once upon a time, Americans
honored the Lord, and he commissioned their nation to welcome
all faiths while commanding them to uphold Christian values.
But in recent decades, the Supreme Court ruled against prayer
in public schools, and legalized abortion, while politicians
declared war on Christmas and kowtowed to the homosexual
lobby. Conservative activists insist that they protest
these developments not to defend special privileges for Christianity,
but to respect the founders desire for universal religious
liberty rooted, they say, in the Christian tradition.

- Dear friends,
- Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with
a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous
danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We
might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe .
This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of
Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival

civilization, facing an Islamic Europe .

- You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these
cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination,
there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society
created by Muslim mass-migration.
- All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim
neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are
even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for
the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women
walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group
of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk
three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops
have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to
find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled
by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they
are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks
for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe
, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.
- There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe . With
larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every
European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will
dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we

- JUSTICES TO HEAR TWO CHALLENGES ON GAY MARRIAGE
By ADAM LIPTAK - Published: December 7, 2012 - WASHINGTON
The Supreme Court announced on Friday that it would enter the
national debate over same-sex marriage, agreeing to hear a pair
of cases challenging state and federal laws that define marriage
to include only unions of a man and a woman.
One of the cases, from California, could establish or reject
a constitutional right to same-sex marriage. The justices could
also rule on narrower grounds that would apply only to marriages
- The second case, from New York, challenges a federal law
that requires the federal government to deny benefits to gay
and lesbian couples married in states that allow such unions.
The courts move comes against the backdrop of a rapid shift
in public attitudes about same-sex marriage, with recent polls
indicating that a majority of Americans support allowing such
unions. After the elections last month, the number of states
authorizing same-sex marriage increased by half, to nine. The
courts docket is now crowded with cases about the meaning
of equality, with the new cases joining ones on affirmative action
in higher education and on the future of the Voting Rights Act
of 1965. Decisions in all of the cases are expected by June.
- ILLINOIS CLERGY MEMBERS SUPPORT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN LETTER
SIGNED BY 260
By MAGGIE ASTOR - Published: December 23, 2012 - More than 250
religious leaders in Illinois have signed an open letter in support
of same-sex marriage, which the legislature is likely to take
up in January.
State Senator Heather A. Steans and another legislator plan to
introduce the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act.
We dedicate our lives to fostering faith and compassion,
and we work daily to promote justice and fairness for all,
the leaders wrote in the letter, which was released Sunday. Standing
on these beliefs, we think that it is morally just to grant equal
opportunities and responsibilities to loving, committed same-sex
couples. There can be no justification, they continued,
for the law treating people differently on the basis of
sexual orientation or gender identity.
- This is not the first time members of the clergy have endorsed
same-sex marriage, but the public nature of the letter and the
number of signatures made it an especially strong statement.
- The timing is also significant: State Senator Heather A.
Steans and State Representative Greg Harris, both Democrats,
plan to introduce a bill next month to legalize same-sex marriage.
Ms. Steans said they would not put the legislation, the Religious
Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, up for a vote unless they
were confident it would pass. She added that the Senate, at least,
was definitely within striking distance of the 30
votes needed for passage and that she hoped the letter would
help persuade undecided legislators to support the bill. Continued:

Mali Moctar Touré was strapped to a chair, blindfolded,

- SAUDIS DETAIN 41 FOR 'PLOTTING' TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS
December 28, 2012 - By Doug Stanglin, USA TODAY - Religious police
in a province in northwestern Saudi Arabia have raided a house
and detained more than 41 guests for "plotting to celebrate
Christmas," according to a police statement, Al-Akhbar reported
Friday. The newspaper, published in Beirut, said the raid in
Al-Jouf is the latest in a string of crackdowns on residents
perceived to threaten Saudi Arabia's strict religious code. Al-Akhbar
said the host of the alleged Christmas gathering is reported
to be an "Asian diplomat." Guests included 41 Christians,
as well as two Saudi Arabian and Egyptian Muslims. The host and
the two Muslims were said to be "severely intoxicated,"
the police statement said. Saudi Arabia, which only recognizes
Islamic faith and practice, has in the past banned public Christmas
celebrations, but has been ambiguous about festivities held in
private quarters, the newspaper said.
- Saudi Arabia's head mufti Sheikh Abdel Aziz bin Abdullah
has previously condemned "invitations to Christmas or wedding
celebrations," Al-Akhbar noted.http://www.freep.com/usatoday/article/1796747?odyssey=
- POPE DECREES CONTEMPLATIVE MYSTICS DOCTORS OF THE CHURCH
- Friday Church News Notes, November 2, 2012, David Cloud:
On October 7, Pope Benedict XVI named two contemplative mystics--Hildegard
of Bingen and John of Avila--Doctors of the Church.
Though Hildegard lived in the 12th century and John in the 16th,
they have a large influence among evangelicals in
our day through their contemplative mysticism. The writings of
both saints have been promoted by Richard Foster,
whose books such as Celebration of Discipline and Spiritual Classics
have played a large role in spreading contemplative mysticism.
One of Johns disciples was Teresa of Avila, another influential
contemplative mystic who claimed to have seen Mary and Joseph
and the Trinity, levitated and experienced paralysis and feelings
of being strangulated during her visions, and believed that Protestants
had brought damnation to themselves by rejecting the Pope and
the Mass. Hildegard, a Benedictine nun, practiced such extreme
asceticism that it injured her health. She called her visions,
which she allegedly began experiencing at age three, the
secret mysteries of God. She claimed to have seen each
member of the Godhead. She falsely prophesied that the end of
history was at hand in her day. She was deeply committed to the
veneration of Mary and wrote songs such as Praise for the
Mother. She spoke of God in the feminine. She was committed
to a false gospel of salvation through the Catholic sacraments.
She claimed to have seen purgatory and described this mythical
place in great detail. Her medical works are consulted in the
alternative health movement today, though they were largely ridiculous,
involving curative stones, incantations, and prescriptions of
herbs, etc., with the objective of balancing the humours
in the body, which is an occultic view. Her cure for baldness
was to spread bears grease mixed with the ash of wheat
straw on the head and leave it there as long as possible, and
for jaundice she instructed the sufferer to tie a bat onto his
back until it died. These are the dark, occultic waters from
which the modern contemplative prayer movement is drawing. Contemporary
worship music and contemplative prayer are two of the powerful
engines that are constructing the end-time one-world church.

- ONE-WORLD CHURCH CONTINUES TO TAKE SHAPE
- Friday Church News Notes, November 2, 2012, David Cloud:
The signs of a one-world church taking shape are everywhere today.
October 7-28 the Roman Catholic Synod of Bishops XIII was held
at the Vatican and was attended by Baptists, Protestants, and
others as delegates and observers. Baptist leader Timothy George
was one of the speakers, praising the process of dialogue
and calling for the churchs unity. George prayed
that the Catholic synod and the Catholic New Evangelization program
will be a harbinger of gospel renewal and refreshing for
the church and for the world in our time (Baptist
Addresses Vatican Crowd, Associated Baptist Press, Oct.
23, 2012). Olav Tveit, general secretary of the World Council
of Churches, sent a fraternal greeting to the synod. Tveit expressed
a longing for the visible unity of the Church in one faith
and in one eucharistic fellowship (Greets of the
WCC General Secretary, Oct. 11, 2012, oikoumene.org). The
World Council represents 340 denominations, and they are in close
association with Rome. Add to this unholy pot the Evangelicals
and Rome movement, the rapid spread of RC contemplative mysticism,
the radical ecumenism of contemporary worship music, the close
affiliation of the charismatic movement with Rome, and it is
obvious that the visible unity of the Church is nearly
upon us. The WCC is radically liberal in theology, as we have
documented in our report The World Council of Churches,
but Tveits message was fascinating for its evangelical
tone. He talked about the cross and the resurrection of
Jesus Christ, which is the Good News. He talked about justification
in Christ, the proclamation of the Gospel and the call to holiness.
He talked about the power of the Holy Spirit, about
meditating on biblical texts, and witnessing to the Gospel
in [our] homes and families, on the streets or at the workplace.
If I didnt know better, I would conclude that the man is
a Bible believer, but he isnt! He uses those beautiful
words, but he has a different dictionary to define them.
- For the WCC, the gospel is more about establishing social-political
justice in this present world than the salvation of the
soul. Christ, the Holy Spirit, holiness, justification, meditating
on the Bible, witnessing to the Gospel, these have many different
definitions within the mixed multitude of the World Council.
Since Romes Second Vatican Council, a three-year conference
that began exactly 50 years ago and that opened the door for
the broadest ecumenism church history has ever witnessed, Roman
Catholicism has been evangelicalized and evangelicals
have been Romanized. We are living in a time of great mixing
and merging. The black and white of doctrinal truth is being
blended into the gray of compromise. Theological words are allowed
many different definitions, because to be too dogmatic is impolite
and divisive. Thirty years ago, I would not have thought that
I would live to see independent Baptist churches playing footsie
with people who are affiliated with Rome, but it is happening
before our very eyes with the rapidly-spreading acceptance for
contemporary worship music, which is probably the single most
powerful glue for the creation of the one-world church. http://www.wayoflife.org
- THE MAINSTREAMING OF MORMONISM
- Friday Church News Notes, November 2, 2012, by David Cloud:
Whether or not Mitt Romney wins the U.S. presidential election
next week, one thing is certain: His candidacy has helped push
forward the mainstreaming of Mormonism, which is something that
the cult has been aiming for since Mormon leaders voiced their
support for Promise Keepers in the 1990s. 1997 witnessed the
publication of How Wide the Divide: A Mormon & an Evangelical
in Conversation and former President Jimmy Carter stating at
a national press conference that Mormons are Christians and should
not be the targets of proselytizing. In 1998, AOG
pastor Dean Jackson sent a former declaration of repentance
for prejudice against members of the Church of Latter Day Saints
to Mormon leaders in Provo, Utah. In 1999, Mormons were invited
to participate in the annual March for Jesus in Salt Lake City.
In 2001, Standing Together Ministries was founded by evangelical
preacher Greg Johnson with the goal of furthering dialogue
between evangelical Christians and Latter-day Saints. In
2004, evangelical leaders such as Ravi Zacharias, Fuller Seminary
president Richard Mouw, Biola University professor Craig Hazen,
and CCM artist Michael Card joined Latter Day Saints
in an Evening of Friendship in the Mormon Tabernacle
in Salt Lake City. (See Way of Lifes Advanced Bible Studies
Series course Defense of the Faith for documentation of the previous
facts.) In May 2012, CNN Belief Blog published a report on the
growing influence of Mormons in Washington D.C., stating that
the nations capital has become a Mormon stronghold,
with Latter-day Saints playing a big and growing role in the
Washington establishment. The growth of Mormonism in the
nations capitol was described as an absolute explosion.
In late October 2012, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
(BGEA) removed a longstanding reference to Mormonism as a cult
from its web site after Billy and Franklin Graham met with Mitt
Romney. We have long said that it is inconsistent and hypocritical
to affiliate with the Roman Catholic Church while rejecting Mormonism,
as both have a false gospel and a false christ. The mainstreaming
of Mormonism is further evidence that the one-world church continues
to gather stream. http://www.wayoflife.org
- TWILIGHT LEADING TEENS TO VAMPIRISM
- Friday Church News Notes, November 23, 2012, David Cloud:
The following is excerpted from Twilight Break Dawn
Leading Teens to Bloodletting, Christian Post, Nov. 12,
2012: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, which opens
in theaters on Friday, is the last chapter of the popular Twilight
movie series, but a Christian producer and author has warned
that it is just the beginning when it comes to leading teenagers
into occult practices. ... In his interview with Christian Post,
Steve Wohlberg said he has been watching the trend of teenagers
getting involved in the occult for a long time--starting with
the Harry Potter books and movies, which the producer
says led many curious teens to inquire about the Wiccan religion.
When the Twilight series came out, I knew that just like
Harry Potter contributed to interest in Wicca, Twilight will
increase interest in vampirism, he shared. There
is a whole network of organizations that are promoting vampirism,
and it is very easy to go on the Internet an type in teenage
vampire, and you will find websites that are teaching kids how
to get involved in drinking blood, how to find a donor, how to
get involved in vampirism, and the evidence is so overwhelming
that kids are getting involved in occultism and vampirism left
and right. Wohlberg noted that the problem is not just
limited to American teenagers--there are clans reportedly
popping up all over Australia that are actually involved in drinking
blood. ... The reality is that teens who are involved in
mesmerizing entertainment that are saturated with occultism an
making occultism look positive, there is just a lot of people
who are getting lured into the real things, and that is a very
dangerous trip, Wohlberg added. The biggest danger
is that kids will try to emulate the heroes (in movies like Twilight)
and when they check out real occultism, they can be invaded by
demonic forces. http://www.wayoflife.org

Monday, November 26, 2012 By David Green, the founder and CEO

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were
working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature
picture frames. Our first retail store wasnt much bigger
than most peoples living rooms, but we had faith that we
would succeed if we lived and worked according to Gods
word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nations
largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations
in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders,
and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.
Were Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles.
Ive always said that the first two goals of our business
are (1) to run our business in harmony with Gods laws,
and (2) to focus on people more than money. And thats what
weve tried to do. We close early so our employees can see
their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays,
one of the weeks biggest shopping days, so that our workers
and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it
is by Gods grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has
blessed us and our employees. Weve not only added jobs
in a weak economy, weve raised wages for the past four
years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum
- DOUBLE-STANDARD OPEN LETTER TO FARAH AND KUPELIAN
Dear Mr Farah and Kupelian,
From: James Kieferdorf <email@example.com>
Subject: Concerned Christian - November 18, 2012 - I have been
very concerned that you and WND are promoting the books/tapes
of Michael Rood and Joe Kovacs. Both of these men are unorthodox.
Many will be duped into thinking that these men are orthodox
and Biblical when in fact both deny cardinal teachings of the
Historic Christian faith. I have read many of Joe Kovacs articles
on WND, and some of his unorthodox statements and teachings in
both his books, Shocked By The Bible and The Divine Secret. His
teachings and statements are very similar to that of Mr Herbert
W. Armstrong and other Armstrong off-shoots. Now I realize why
so many Armstrong off-shoots endorse his books.
www.thedivinesecret.com/115-2 Many of these reviewers are Armstrong
off-shoots all radical deniers of the Holy Trinity and other
orthodox teachings. I noticed John Miller and Jerold Aust.Both
of these men are members of the United Church Of God, one of
the largest off-shoots of Armstrong. I encourage you, Mr Farah
and Kupelian to read the following excellent article concerning
some of the unorthodox teachings of Mr Kovacs here. www.thebereancall.org/content/october-2012-extra-1
Concerning the unorthodox teachings of Michael Rood, I would
encourage you both to read some of Dr John Juedes excellent exposes.
www.abouttheway.org Under Roods picture click on his name. You
can also read some other info on Rood by clicking splinter-groups
on the left hand column. Dr Juedes is a scholar on the Way International
and it's splinter-groups, which Michael Rood was a leader for
many years. Although Michael Rood left The Way, did he really
leave all of it's unbiblical teachings? Has he really abandoned
his anti-Deity of Christ(Messiah) and the Trinity is pagan teachings?
I close with Dr. Juedes timely warning concerning Michael Rood,
from his article "Michael Rood, Doomsday Prophet" "Michael
John Rood is clearly not a reputable Christian minister and Messianic
rabbi as he claims to be. Nor is he a reliable source for accurate
Bible teaching. His speculative predictions about end time events,
archeology, and other topics have led, and will continue to lead,
to more disturbance in the minds of those who accept his theories.
His adherence to teachings and practices learned in a cult, and
his legalism draw people away from the grace of Jesus Christ
which the New Testament teaches. People would be wise to neither
accept Rood's teachings nor support his ministry" I trust
you will do whats right, and stop promoting these men's materials.
Sincerely, James Kieferdorf (email)

- [Ednote: Since most Mexicans are Catholics, is there a trend

December 7, 2012 Last month, in November our US Congress
imported 100,000 legal immigrants into America. This month, December
2012, our 435 citizen-representatives in Congress will bestow
another 100,000 legal immigrants upon our shores, into our communities,
into our schools and into our job market with green cards. Whether
they can speak English, benefit this country with a skill or
not, or are compatible with a 21st century culturedoesn't
matter. Congress piles them into this country because it's been
doing it for the past 47 years. And not 1,000 Americans give
it a second glance, sneeze or thought.
- Our US congress imports and has imported 100,000 legal immigrants
into our country every 30 days, of every month, of every year,
of every decade since 1965. That continued importation of an
endless armada of humanity added 100 million people to our country
in the last 47 years. That same Congress will add another 100
million immigrants to our country within the next three decades,
give or take a few years. US Census Bureau projects an addition
of 100 million people to our country by 2035, a scant 23 years
from now and 138 million by 2050 - a mere 38 years from now.
That's a total of all legal, illegal, chain migration and their

- Congress continues importing that 100,000 immigrants each
month in light of our own 14 million unemployed, crumbling infrastructure,
degrading educational systems and our failing cities and erratic
environment, i.e., drought, food costs, water shortages and lowering
standard of living of the middle class. . . This 10 minute demonstration

- APRIL FOOLS: MICROSOFT BIDS TO ACQUIRE CATHOLIC CHURCH
April 1, 2012 VATICAN CITY (AP) - In a joint press conference
in St. Peter's Square this morning, MICROSOFT Corp. and the Vatican
announced that the Redmond software giant will acquire the Roman
Catholic Church in exchange for an unspecified number of shares
of MICROSOFT common stock.
"We expect a lot of growth in the religious market in the
next five to ten years," said Gates. "The combined
resources of MICROSOFT and the Catholic Church will allow us
to make religion easier and more fun for a broader range of people."
Through the MICROSOFT Network, the company's new on-line service,
"we will make the sacraments available on-line for the first
time" and revive the popular pre-Counter-Reformation practice
of selling indulgences, said Gates. "You can get Communion,
confess your sins, receive absolution - even reduce your time
in Purgatory - all without leaving your home."
A new software application, MICROSOFT Church, will include a
macro language which you can program to download heavenly graces
automatically while you are away from your computer. An estimated
17,000 people attended the announcement in St Peter's Square,
watching on a 60-foot screen as comedian Don Novello - in character
as Father Guido Sarducci - hosted the event, which was broadcast
by satellite to 700 sites worldwide.
If the deal goes through, it will be the first time a computer
software company has acquired a major world religion. With the
acquisition, Pope Benedict XVI will become the senior vice-president
of the combined company's new Religious Software Division, while
MICROSOFT senior vice-presidents Michael Maples and Steven Ballmer
will be invested in the College of Cardinals, said MICROSOFT
Chairman Bill Gates.
Pope Benedict XVI said little during the announcement. When Novello
chided Gates, "Now I guess you get to wear one of these
pointy hats," the crowd roared, but the pontiff's smile
seemed strained. The deal grants MICROSOFT exclusive electronic
rights to the Bible and the Vatican's prized art collection,
which includes works by such masters as Michelangelo and Da Vinci.

Still, plenty of people around the world are taking precautions
ahead of the day when the Mayan calendar ends and, the theory
goes, so does life as we know it. Here, a look at some of the
unusual happenings, by the numbers:
- 100 Members of the "Almighty God" Christian cult
in China who have been arrested for pestering people with warnings
about the Mayan apocalypse
- 72 Consecutive days of natural disasters the cultists are
telling people will begin on Dec. 21
- 5 Theories LiveScience found explaining exactly how life
on Earth will be snuffed out. We'll be toasted by a massive solar
storm; Earth's magnetic poles will flip-flop catastrophically;
Planet X (a non-existent "rogue planet") will smash
into us; the planets will align in a way that ruins everything
(NASA says no planetary alignment is coming, and we've survived
past ones); or, there will be some kind of massive global blackout,
possibly due to an unprecedented alignment of Earth and Sun (again,
NASA says, no).

Chinese furniture maker
- $100 Price of a fancy margarita made with DeLeón
reposado tequila, Grand Marnier 100 year, agave nectar, and real
gold flakes being offered by Iron Cactus, a Mexican grill
in Austin, for people planning to drink like there's no tomorrow
- 12 Percentage of Americans who believe the end of the world
really is upon us
- 14 Percentage of people in the world who think the planet
will be destroyed in our lifetime

has it, alien spacecraft will emerge on the last day and rescue
everyone nearby 200 Population of Bugarach

- ED TARKOWSKI WENT TO BE WITH THE
- [Ednote: There may be some of you who know Ed and the crowd
we used to run with in the Promise Keepers days. I was in a meeting
in Denver, approximately 1992/1993 just starting out, when I
became familiar with Ed's ministry and Ed himself. I too have
his articles on our website and hope they will remain as many
other teachers have. The family generally carries on. He was
our teacher since Discernment Ministries were in infant stages.
He showed the way and we will miss his presence on the web and
look forward to meeting him in heaven.]

Tarkowskis official obituary reads: Edward J. Tarkowski,
Jr., age 72, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
on Saturday, December 29, 2012, after patiently enduring many
physical trials throughout his life. He was born in Erie on January
19, 1940. Ed was a teacher of the Word of God and a counselor
to many. I [Jewel Grewe] first encountered Eds writings
in the early 1990s when he was researching education reform and
its globalist agenda.
- Late in 1992 we met with other education researchers at a
retreat in Pennsylvania. Our terrible experiences at this meeting
proved to be pivotal for both of us. During and after this meeting
we encountered fiery trials and serious testing, the conclusion
of which led Ed and his wife Mary, and me and my husband Lynn,
to commit to serving the Lord in discernment work.
- In many ways Ed was the father of us all who
now do discernment publishing on the Internet. He had wonderful
integrity and he was rock solid standing on the Word of God.
He was fearless in exposing the roots of emerging heresies, and
published landmark articles exposing the New Age occult entering
the church. Ed was computer savvy and seemed undaunted by technology.
He set up a bulletin board and later formed an Internet discussion
loop. In the mid-1990s the topics included the laughing
revivals and the Promise Keepers (PK) movement. We published
many of Eds articles in our magazine The Christian Conscience.
The opposition to our work was fierce, and eventually we experienced
the betrayal of friends and Internet libel.
- The scope of the opposition to biblical truth was a real
eye-opener for us. In a pivotal moment in the Spring of 1995,
Pastor Bill Randles, Ed and I were scheduled to go on a radio
program in conjunction with a discernment conference to warn
about the PK agenda. The station manager came storming into the
studio minutes before the program, panicking because of a Focus
on the Family phone call that threatened to pull their entire
programming off the air if we went on the air to talk against
PK. The manager explained that this would mean he would lose
almost $200,000 worth of programming. This would ruin his station!
- We were astonished! Ed encouraged us to go on the air anyway.
We did the show, and managed to talk circles around PK without
mentioning it precisely by name. We got our point across. Sandy
Simpson of Deception in the Church website said of Ed, He
and I got started in discernment issues before the Internet even
began with our computer bulletin boards. He was a big help to
me when I first started investigating the Toronto Blessing.
- Mike Oppenheimer of Let Us Reason Ministries wrote: Ed
was a major influence in the discerning of the Rodney Browne/Toronto
invasion. He had a good biblical understanding of these matters
and was one of the first voices to be vocal on these matters.
When I listened to him and read his articles I knew he was someone
who understood the larger picture. I still have his tapes and
recently was going to digitize them. He will be missed until
we meet again.
- Warren Smith remembers: Ed Tarkowski has been an inspiration
to me and so many others in the Christian faith. He was a courageous
yet kind contributor to the field of Biblical discernment.
- When very few were seeing the deception that was creeping
into the church, he was there as a watchman and a brother. He
will be greatly missed and we will rejoice to see him in heaven.
Eds early discernment discussion loop included Jewel Grewe,
and in early 1995 when her husband Travers was dying of cancer,
Eds loop prayed for them. It was because of Eds loop
that many of us in discernment work online became connected with
each other, and many of us remain friends to this day. Ed retired
in the early 1990s when his health problems worsened, but he
has left us a legacy of articles warning of the apostasy and
heresy that was coming into the church. These articles are still
very timely and current. You can access most of his articles

FEMA CAMP USE FOR RE-EDUCATION DURING HURRICANE SANDY
[Ednote: I heard today 1.23.2013 that people are still living
in tents in 0 degree cold without heat or electricity in hurricane
Sandy's territory along the East Coast] Many Christians have
felt for years that there is a strong potential for these Camps
to be used as Re-education and Detention camps for bigotted -
anti- homosexuality principled Believers who believe in the Constitution
and Right to Bear Arms, BUT because of the Patriot Act- ANY American
can be detained without charges or a trial AND without ANY EVIDENCE
- BUT charged as a "SUSPECTED TERRORIST" (Sect 503

We must pray for God's 'Hedge of Protection' and His discernment
and wisdom to 'understand these times like the sons of Issachar
and know what to do. (1 Chron 12:32)
Eph 5:15-18 gives us God's plan for us" 15 See then that
you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming
the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise,
but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not be
drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with
the Spirit,( continually seeking HIM and HIS guidance)
FEMA camp for victims of New Jersey Hurricane Sandy is a freezing
tent city operated like a prison. Guards are everywhere, black
helicopters patrol the sky, inmates even have to show ID to use
the bathrooms. [Apparently, FEMA is following the rule book prepared
for these camps which really are designed as prisons, not rescue
camps. FEMA is spending $300 million per day on this operation
and is asking Congress for a bailout to cover the cost yet it
is turning away food and water donations from the private sector.

is an eye-opener for things to come.] WND 2012 Nov 18 http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/realityzone/UFNhurricaneSandyFEMAcamps.html
- PAT ROBERTSON SAYS DINOSAURS PREDATE BIBLE TIME
- Friday Church News Notes, December 7, 2012 Dave Cloud - Pat
Robertson, head of The 700 Club, told a viewer on November 27
that the earth is older than 6,000 years and that dinosaurs predate
biblical history - Pat Robertson Says Dinosaurs Prove Young Earth
Creationists Are Wrong (Christian Post, Nov. 28, 2012). Robertson
was replying to a Christian mother who is concerned that her
sons and husband are abandoning the biblical faith for the lies
of science, and she got a horribly-wrong answer from Robertson.
Sadly, it is obvious that he is ignorant of this important issue,
erring in thinking that evolutionary science is established upon
real facts. Evolutionary science is not real science. It is a
reinterpretation of the facts of science through the eyes of
- All real science supports the Bible, and this has been documented
by many highly qualified scientists .. (that we list in Testimonies
of Scientists Who Believe the Bible, (available as a free eBook
from www.wayoflife.org. It is essential to understand that evolution
does not rate as a theory or even as a hypothesis. As David Stone,
Ph.D. physics, says, (Scientific theories involve quantitative
modeling, experimental data, and repeated validation by prediction
and observation. In any aspect of the philosophy / fantasy of
evolution, there is no (theory.(There is no theory for formation
of the first protein, first DNA, first cellular sub-structures,
first cell, multi-celled creatures, transitions between kinds,
etc. Just stories.
- There are no genetic data, not a single observed case of
mutations and natural selection producing new, complex tissues,
organs, or creatures. Evolution is also not a hypothesis, which
is a reasonable explanation of observed facts, consistent with
known physical laws, employing experimental data and analysis.
It has been tested at least to some degree to see whether it
holds up under certain conditions. A theory arises when a hypothesis
has stood up to repeated tests under a wide variety of conditions
and cannot be broken. Evolution warrants neither term. Evolution
qualifies merely as a philosophical, even a religious idea, void
of scientific support, and intended to replace biblical truth
with stories (Dr. Stone, e-mail to David Cloud, August 21, 2011).
Pat Robertson mentioned (carbon dating as supposed evidence for
an ancient earth, but carbon dating actually points to a young
earth. When it comes to the Bible, its account of creation is
- There is nothing (poetic (about the account in Genesis 1-2.
(An evening and a morning does not add up to millions of years.
Way back in 1922, William Jennings Bryan wisely said, It is no
light matter to impeach the veracity of the Scriptures in order
to accept, not a truth--not even a theory--but a mere hypothesis
(In His Image, 1922, p. 94). Bryan was correct in this statement,
but he too erred by foolishly giving credence to a (Blong day
view of Genesis 1, thus undermining the biblical account. This
is exactly what men such as Pat Robertson are doing in our day,
and it is shameful and destructive to the cause of Christ. http://www.wayoflife.org
- ONE-WORLD CHURCH ON THE MOVE IN RUSSIA
- Friday Church News Notes, December 7, 2012, David Cloud -
The one-world church made a local appearance in Omsk, Russia
last year, in an interfaith meeting attended by Lutherans, Catholics,
Baptists, Adventists, and Pentecostals. The meeting was held
September 24, 2011, in the Lutheran Church. The news report send
to me by a missionary stated, "We are all so different,
but united in our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. The evening
ended with applause for the glory of our God!" This is a
great deception. It is blind emotional mysticism. While they
feel deeply that they are glorifying God and they encourage one
another in this feeling, in the light of God Word they are actually
rebels to the truth and to the cause of Christ.
- They are deceived by the master deceiver, who transforms
himself into an angel of light and whose ministers transform
themselves into the ministers of righteousness (2 Corinthians
11:13-15). God commands His people to earnestly contend for the
once-delivered New Testament faith and to mark and avoid those
who teach heresies (Jude 3; Romans 16:17). We are to turn away
from those who have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof,
such as the supernatural new birth and the infallibly-inspired,
all-sufficient Bible (2 Timothy 3:5). Not surprisingly, the photo
of the ecumenical service shows a Christian rock praise band.
Contemporary worship music is one of the major forces at play
in creating the apostate one-world church, and those who are
messing with it are not wise. http://www.wayoflife.org

- CLAIM OBAMA HID 'GAY LIFE' TO BECOME PRESIDENT
Chicago homosexual community shocked he could keep it secret
Published: 09/11/2012 at 9:53 PM by Jerome R. Corsi - A prominent
member of Chicagos homosexual community claims Barack Obamas
participation in the gay bar and bathhouse scene
was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were
shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House.
- It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think
Obama was going to keep his gay life secret, said Kevin
DuJan, who was a gossip columnist in Chicago for various blogs
when Obama was living in the city as a community organizer and
later a state senator.
- Nobody who knew Obama in the gay bar scene thought
he could possibly be president, said DuJan.
- DuJan, founder and editor of the Hillary Clinton-supporting
website HillBuzz.org, told WND he has first-hand information
from two different sources that Obama was personally involved
in the gay bar scene.
- If you just hang out at these bars, the older guys
who have been frequenting these gay bars for 25 years will tell
you these stories, DuJan said. Obama used to go to
the gay bars during the week, most often on Wednesday, and they
said he was very much into older white guys.
- Obama, DuJan said, is not heterosexual and hes
not bisexual. Hes homosexual. Continued:
- OBAMA IMPEACHMENT BILL NOW IN CONGRESS IS DEAD
Declares president's use of military without approval 'high crime,
Published: 03/11/2012 at 7:23 PM - by Drew Zahn - Let the president
be duly warned. Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced
a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive
military force without authorization of an act of Congress, it
is the sense of Congress that such an act would be an
impeachable high crime and misdemeanor. Specifically, Article
I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone
the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely
tested in recent years, including Obamas authorization
of military force in Libya.
- In an exclusive WND
column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced
his House Concurrent Resolution
107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary
of Defense Leon Panetta.
- This week it was Secretary of Defense Panettas
declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he
and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization
to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations, Tancredo
writes. This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing
an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take
offensive action based on Panettas policy statement, because
it would violate the Constitution.
- Read The Case for Impeachment and know why Obama
has got to go before America is done for
- Get the bumper sticker that tells everyone to Impeach Obama!
- In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.,
over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military,
Panetta said, Our goal would be to seek international permission
and we would
come to the Congress and inform you and determine
how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get
permission from the Congress I think those are issues
we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.
- UBS TO PAY $1.5 BILLION OVER RATE-RIGGING SCANDAL
By JOHN HEILPRIN - From Associated Press - December 19, 2012
3:59 AM EST GENEVA (AP) Switzerland's UBS AG agreed Wednesday
to pay some $1.5 billion in fines to international regulators
following a probe into the rigging of a key global interest rate.
In admitting to fraud, Switzerland's largest bank became the
second bank, after Britain's Barclays PLC, to settle over the
rate-rigging scandal. The fine, which will be paid to authorities
in the U.S., Britain and Switzerland, also comes just over a
week after HSBC PLC agreed to pay nearly $2 billion for alleged
The settlement caps a tough year for UBS and the reputation of
the global banking industry. As well as being ensnared in the
industry-wide investigation into alleged manipulations of the
benchmark LIBOR interest rate, short for London interbank offered
rate, UBS has seen its reputation suffer in a London trial into
a multibillion dollar trading scandal and ongoing tax evasion
probes. Continued: http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_22221338/ubs-pay-1-5b-
- RUSSIAN FORCES TAKE SYRIAN CHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS UNDER
- Saturday, December 22, 2012 The chemical warfare threat looming
over Syrias civil war and its neighbors has taken an epic
turn with the announcement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei
Lavrov Saturday, Dec. 22, that the Syrian government has
consolidated its chemical weapons in one or two locations
amid a rebel onslaught and they are under control for the time
being. He added that Russia, which has military advisers
training Syrias military, has kept close watch over its
DEBKAfiles military and intelligence sources report: The
Russian foreign ministers statement was a message to Washington
that the transfer of Syrias weapons of mass destruction
to one or two protected sites was under Russian control. This
had removed the danger of them falling into the hands of the
al Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra ,which had come ominously
close Friday, Dec. 21, when the Islamists spearheaded a Syrian
rebel assault for the capture of the al-Safira military complex
and Bashar Assads chemical and biological stores.
Lavrov did not go into detail about how this arsenal was removed
and to which locations. But his reference to Russian military
advisers training Syrias military clearly indicated
that Russian forces were directly involved in removing the WMD
out of the reach of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists.
His assertion that they were under control indicated
that Russia was also involved in safeguarding them.
DEBKAfiles Moscow sources add: Russias military intervention
in the Syrian civil war achieved four objectives:
1. The prevention of Western or Israel military action for seizing
control of Syrias chemical and biological weapons arsenals;
2. The prevention of Western military intervention in the civil
war behind the forces dedicated to the removal of Bashar Assad.
The Russian military is now engaged in the dual mission of guarding
his WMD arsenal and his regime;
3. The Russian military presence in Syria delivers a heavy swipe
to the rebels;
4. Russias intervention and military presence have laid
the groundwork for Moscow and Washington to work out an accord
that will bring Syrias civil war to an end.
