“Jesus Christ was the most perfect being to ever walk this planet and he was persecuted and nailed to the cross, so please don’t be surprised when we get a little static.”
– Phil Robertson, speaking at his church Sunday.

The Daily Mail this evening posted an exclusive story regarding remarks made by Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson to his Bible study group this morning at his home church in West Monroe, Louisiana.

At the conclusion of the Bible study, Robertson reportedly stated “I will not give or back off from my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions.”

During his talk to the group, he is quoted as saying (h/t The Lid):

‘I have been immoral, drunk, high. I ran with the wicked people for 28 years and I have run with the Jesus people since and the contrast is astounding.

‘I tell people, “You are a sinner, we all are. Do you want to hear my story before I give you the bottom line on your story?”

‘We murder each other and we steal from one another, sex and immorality goes ballistic. All the diseases that just so happen to follow sexual mischief… boy there are some microbes running around now.

‘Sexual sins are numerous and many, I have a few myself. So what is your safest course of action? If you’re a man, find yourself a woman, marry them and keep your sex right there.

‘You can have fun, but one thing is for sure, as long as you are both healthy in the first place, you are not going to catch some debilitating illness, there is safety there.

‘Commonsense says we are not going to procreate the human race unless we have a man and a woman. From the beginning Jesus said, “It is a man and a woman.” Adam was made and Eve was made for this reason. They left their fathers and mothers and be united to become one flesh, that’s what marriage is all about.

‘But we looked at it and said it was an outdated stereotype. When you look back at the human race, the sins have always been the same: We get high, we get drunk, we get laid, we steal and kill.

‘Has this changed at all from the time God burnt up whole cities because their every thought was evil?’

Robertson also added: “Jesus Christ was the most perfect being to ever walk this planet and he was persecuted and nailed to the cross, so please don’t be surprised when we get a little static.”

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile.  He writes:

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5

What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law.  But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved.  It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you.” – John 15:18

We must all stand with Phil!

It is not just his opinion and our mutual beliefs but God’s word.

1 Corinthians 6:8-11

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren.

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Corinthians 6:9 I.e. effeminate by perversion.

I wish I could quote it as well as he did.  Now is the time to stand, stand for God, stand for Phil…

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

‘Duck Dynasty’ debate explodes from TV to dinner tables, water coolers

Todd Starnes

By Todd Starnes

Published December 20, 2013

FoxNews.com

The most popular reality show in cable television history has sparked a heated national debate, laying bare a national rift over gay rights and free speech and prompting politicians, entertainers and ordinary folks to enter the cultural fray.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, as well as former GOP presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, have all come to the defense of ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson, whose statements condemning homosexuality angered many and earned him an “indefinite suspension” from the A&E network.With families gathering for the holidays next week, it seems likely ‘Duck Dynasty’ will dominate many dinner table debates.

What won’t be as clear is whether the hit show will go on. A statement from the Robertson family released late Thursday raised doubts about the Louisiana clan’s willingness to continue after comments from patriarch Phil Robertson triggered an uproar.

“We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm,” the Robertson family said in a prepared statement. “We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.”

The family said it has “spent much time in prayer” since learning A&E had suspended Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Louisiana family, over comments he made about homosexuality.

Robertson sparked a national debate on religion and tolerance in an interview with GQ magazine. The writer asked him what he considered to be sinful behavior.

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” Robertson said.

Then he paraphrased Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

The family defended Robertson’s comments and stressed that they are a “family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.”

I couldn’t believe it when I read these two articles.

The first one brought a tear to my eye.  My beloved incandescent light bulbs are officially kaput after Jan. 1st.

That is right, our benevolent government has decided that to save on power consumption (save the environment), we should all switch to fluorescent light bulbs CFL’s which contain the deadly poison, mercury.   Enough mercury that you are directed to by law have an $4-6k hazmat clean up if you break one in your home.  Bulbs that we are supposed to dispose of at a special disposal site, not you household trashcan.  That is better for the environment than a little more power consumption?  How often do we think that will actually happen?

BUT…

We can no longer use led bullets, because of lead poisoning dangers to the environment.  Instead, we are going to use copper, which is a much scarcer resource than lead and will be much more expensive.  Have you seen all of the copper theft stories in the news the last few years?

So Lead is worst than mercury?  Do we really think more bullets will end up in the trash than light bulbs?

Common sense is dead, the world is upside down and deception is around every corner, just as Christ said it would be.

On a positive note, we do still have a few bright folks left.  Larry Birnbaum has invented a new legal version of the incandescent light bulb: Newcandescent.  I included a link below as well.  Genius!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

I’m not generally the religious type but this was an excellent song that someone had given to me on a CD on my truck while I was at work. This is NOT mine and I refuse to take credit, I could not find this anywhere on YouTube so I decided to upload it. Enjoy 🙂

Lyrics: When it it comes to this season I am reminded of the past. Over 300 messianic prophesies came to pass, with the birth of a child, both god and man. Our deliverer of sin, born with a battle plan. Sin waged war in our lives since the day of our birth, but now the deliverer, our rescuer has come to break that curse. That which has separated the father on this earth is about to be defeated by our king and lord, oh Mary did you know.

Mary did you know, that your baby boy will one day walk on water.Mary did you know, that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters. Did you know, that your baby boy has come to make you new. This child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

The punishment that brought us peace was upon him and by his wounds we are healed. He made an appeal to the father, our judged by his death on our behalf. Satan never anticipating the aftermath. The chains are broken, the captives are set free. The oppressed to depress can lift their heads cause we are free indeed. Our redemption sealed by the blood through the sacrifice of the one. Born to die so that you and I can find the life he died for to ensure forever more the cure for death. Oh Mary did you know.

Mary did you know, that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man. Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand. Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels tried, and when you kiss your little baby you have kissed the face of God. Oh Mary did you know.

It is finished my debt is payed in full, can i ever fully grasp what it took to save their soul. But I will lift my head, and I will bare my cross, I have been sanctified by the blood so Satan can count his loss. The victory is mine by birthright, reborn in his name. Authority over evil because of the price that he payed. I see the heavens opened wide and seeded out the right hand of God. He’s the one and only son, the rescuer of the world. Seeding and glory and authority.

The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again. The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the pain that is his life. Did you know that your baby boy is heavens perfect lamb. Then sleep sweet child sleep. He is the perfect lamb. Oh Mary did you know.

All this is by ear so if some is incorrect my apologies ahead of time

John 14:6

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

He did not say He is “a” way or “a” truth, or “a” life.  No he was very emphatic about who He is and God has been very clear on what His name is, the reverence we should give it, and the power it holds!

Moses understood this. When he encountered the call of God that came from the burning bush, Moses asked God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” (Ex. 3:13, ESV). God answered Moses, “I Am Who I Am” (v. 14). God told Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations” (v. 15).

Oh how far we have all fallen.  Very good article, be sure to read it entirely…

Do Christians and Muslims Serve the Same God?

Does God care what we call Him? Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? These are questions many Christians are asking these days, and for good reason.

For some time now, feminist theologians and a host of others have suggested that Christians should adopt new names for God. One denomination went so far as to affirm names like “Giver, Gift and Giving” in place of “Father, Son and Holy Spirit” to be used in worship. Feminist theologians have demanded that masculine pronouns and names for God be replaced with female or gender-neutral terms. But to change the name of God is to redefine the God we reference. Changing the name of God is no small matter.

As a matter of fact, God takes His name very seriously, and the Ten Commandments include the command that we must not take the name of the Lord in vain. We are to use the names God has given for Himself, and we are to recognize that God takes His name seriously because He desires to be rightly known by His human creatures. We cannot truly know Him if we do not even know His name.

Moses understood this. When he encountered the call of God that came from the burning bush, Moses asked God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” (Ex. 3:13, ESV).

Amazing what we are seeing.  How deluded and arrogant is Man to think that we are the cause of the global cooling, when God designed this world and controls every aspect of it.  Many are deceived indeed.

Volcanic activity and the earthquakes that precede and follow them are one of the signs we are supposed to look for.

Matthew 24:4-8

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

By Michael Snyder, on December 5th, 2013Volcano Eruption

Have you noticed that this December is unusually cold so far?  Could the fact that we have had a record number of volcanoes erupt in 2013 be responsible?  Certainly an unusually calm solar cycle is playing a significant role in producing all of this cold weather, but as you will see below the truth is that throughout human history volcanic eruptions have produced some of the coldest winters ever recorded.  In fact, there have been some major eruptions that have actually substantially reduced global temperatures for two to three years.  So should we be alarmed that the number of volcano eruptions this year was the highest ever recorded?  Could it be possible that we are heading for a period of global cooling as a result?  And if the planet does cool significantly, could that lead to widespread crop failures and mass famine?  Don’t think that it can’t happen.  In fact, it has happened before and it is only a matter of time until it happens again.

I knew that we were seeing an unusual amount of volcanic activity around the planet so far this year.  In fact, I wrote about it in my recent article entitled “Why Have 10 Major Volcanoes Along The Ring Of Fire Suddenly Roared To Life?“  But I had no idea that we were on the verge of a new yearly record.  So I was shocked when I visited the Extinction Protocol today and discovered that we have witnessed a record number of volcano eruptions in 2013…
