This Day in History

On April 27, 1865 at 2am the steamboat Sultana, some seven miles north of Memphis, Tennessee, carrying 2,300 just-released Union prisoners of war, plus crew and civilian passengers, exploded and sank. Some 1,700 people died. It was the worst maritime disaster in U.S. history, more costly than even the April 14, 1912 sinking of the Titanic, when 1,517 people were lost. But because the Sultana went down when it did, the disaster was not well covered in the newspapers or magazines, and was soon forgotten. It is scarcely remembered today.
April 1865 was a busy month; On April 9, at Appomattox Couthouse, Virginia, General Robert E. Lee surrendered. Five days later President Abraham Lincoln was assasinated. On April 26 his assassin, John Wilkes Booth, was caught and killed. That same day General Joseph Johnson surrendered the last large Confederate army. Shortly thereafter Union troops captured Confederate President Jefferson Davis. The Civil War was over. Northern newspapers rejoiced.
News of a terrible steamboat tragedy was relegated to the newspaper's back pages. In a nation desensitized to death, 1,700 more did not seem such an enormous tragedy that it does today.

Without God America will fall

By Tom Ambrose
February 27, 2008

While America continues its quest to seek salvation from politicians like Clinton, Obama and McCain, our nation is continuing its slide into the hellish abyss of government tyranny. At the same time, interestingly enough, the Christian church in America is becoming impotent and irrelevant.
Think I exaggerate?
According to a recent AP report published by ABC News citing multiple studies, "nearly half of American adults [are] leaving the faith tradition of their upbringing to either switch allegiances or abandon religious affiliation altogether," "mainline Protestant churches are in decline, non-denominational churches are gaining and the ranks of the unaffiliated are growing," "[o]ne in four adults ages 18 to 29 claim no affiliation with a religious institution," and "[t]he religious demographic benefiting the most from this religious churn is those who claim no religious affiliation. People moving into that category outnumber those moving out of it by a three-to-one margin."
The report also notes that "The majority of the unaffiliated - 12 percent of the overall population - describe their religion as 'nothing in particular,' and about half of those say faith is at least somewhat important to them. Atheists or agnostics account for 4 percent of the total population."
For those of you who are tempted to blow off this report as the fiction of a globalist media conspiracy, consider this: In addition to America's descent into government tyranny, homosexual marriage is ascending to prominence, Christian couples are divorcing at a rate competitive with non-Christian couples, butchering babies in abortion clinics is still the law of our land, and prominent American church leaders continue to embrace sexual sin as an acceptable lifestyle choice.
With such an increase of evil, do you honestly believe the church in America is alive and well, never mind healthy and vibrant?
If the church is strong and well in America, then no doubt you will also have very interesting explanations for the progressive sleaze of the entertainment industry, the disgusting increase of child molestation in the church and elsewhere, the growing promotion and prominence of homosexuality in public schools and church pulpits, and the increasingly brazen attempts of government officials to censor and persecute both church pastors and homeschooling families.
If the church is strong and well in America, then why is the church not systematically using its vast resources to help those in need rather than supporting by their silence prominent pastors who are calling for "faith-based" government solutions? If the church is strong and well in America, then why have cesspools of filth and violence like Los Angeles and San Francisco continued to fester? If the church is strong and well in America, then why are morally corrupt Supreme Court decisions like the ones involving the Ten Commandments and other religious monuments, prayer in schools, etc. allowed to stand with little more than a peep from church leaders?
God didn't cause these things to happen, though He is obviously allowing them. I submit to you that the church in America, overall, is weak and weary - not strong, not well, not healthy. It has a diminishing voice because it has lost its integrity - its message has been watered down, and many of its leaders not only don't lead, but are themselves morally compromised. And, as the son of a traveling preacher, I personally have witnessed numerous churches across this country that don't even bother to welcome strangers, or when they do, it is often with a plastic smile: "Welcome ... glad you could visit us today ... the offering plate is over there by the door ... next!"
You know, my dad used to tell me that "when a fish stinks, it stinks from the head down." I'm beginning to understand the wisdom of that statement. Though our political leaders are responsible for the rise of lawlessness in our nation, ultimately the moral decay behind that lawlessness can be traced back to America's pulpits. One of our Founders, John Adams, surely understood this when he noted that "[o]ur Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Surely, Thomas Jefferson would agree:
And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure if we have removed their only firm basis: a conviction in the minds of men that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.
Folks, the church in America needs to reclaim its God-given role of being light and salt to a dark and decaying world if the ugly boot of unconstitutional government is ever going to be removed from our throats. If we are to solve what is popularly referred to as "the vision thing" in our nation, it must start with the people and pastors of America's churches. It must start with humbly asking God for forgiveness for our moral lassitude and asking for His help. And it must continue with each of us daily seeking Him in Scripture and prayer.

We are the church - you, and I and every believer, as Paul notes many times throughout Scripture! The church is not a white box with chairs or pews that people seat themselves in once a week. When Paul laments persecuting the church in I Corinthians 15, for example, he is not talking about assaulting a building.

We must stop giving lip service to God and walk the walk. In particular, secret sins hurt all of us, be it sexual sin or anything else that places barriers between us and the sovereign, holy God. We need to repent of our sin, not glory in it as many of our nation's leaders now do. And we need to reach out to those who are lost, hungry and hurting, not waste our time courting sleazy politicians.
Only then will we ever have a chance to recover what is quickly being lost in America - our freedom and God's hand of blessing and protection on our nation.

Not the first time, remember Alan Keyes

Power of the press. I think that today people don't elect Presidents, the media does. If you are against their agenda like Ron Paul, Michael Savage or Alan keyes then you are a non-person. No recognition or coverage, just negative comments like you are too far to the right, too religious or a nut case; because of being too far right or having Christian principles. Most people don't think for themselves, they just follow what they are told. In 1996 and 2000 a Black man named Alan Keyes ran for President. Where was all the fanfare and praise that a black was running for President? Today if the media loves you, warning flags should go up.

Only C-5's will do

The wheels make the car. Here's a 2002 Z-28 with C5 Corvette wheels. They are the only wheels for a sharp looking Camaro.

Obama fills positions with like-minded appointees

How the replacement makeup of a Supreme Court under an Obama Presidency might look. Top row L to R: Rev. J. Wright, Nancy Pelosi, Charlie Rangel and Cynthia McKenzie. Bottom L to R: Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jessie Jackson and of course Louis Farrakhan.

On This Day in History

The FBI ends a 51-day siege by storming the Branch Dravidian religious cult headquarters in Waco, Texas. The day was Apr. 19, 1993.

Now the same time 15 years later the Government again attacks another religious compound with massive force. Also don't forget Ruby Ridge; Vicki Weaver shot between the eyes while standing in the door way holding her baby. Yeah, I know it was those kind of people. One day anyone for any reason might be those people. When it happens to you, you'll have a different opinion. The government likes to practice on religious groups, they figure they will be the easiest to terrorise.

Evolution is easy, just adjust the story to fit your theory

I guess most people readily accept evolution as fact because it's so easy to compare yourself with a cute little monkey. But even the monkey then would have to had come from something else. Sooner or later you get back to something like an earth worm which was at a certain point was top kid on the block. Then I guess somehow it figured out that this route is a dead end in evolutionary process so it didn't evolve anymore. That was OK because in the beginning that first one cell organism was smart enough that it evolved into many different things to insure one would make it all the way, even as far as a human. How very intelligent that first cell was.

This day in History

On this day in history, April 12, 1861 the American Civil War began, or as some would say the War for Southern Independence. Or maybe even, the War against Northern Aggression.

" If the Southern States hold no right of secession, then the secession of the thirteen colonies from Great Britain is invalid, and the revolutionary war to secure independence unlawful. In such case, we all remain as colonies, and are subject to the British Crown. The Secession of the Colonies, and the Secession of the thirteen States, can not be one good and the other evil, they are both one or the other. Similar conditions existed in both cases and both felt their liberties threatened."
--Thomas Guinn

Small town Americans cling to guns and religion

"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them.
"It's not surprising then they get bitter. They cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy to people who aren't like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
Did the Truth slip out? Is there something wrong with people who believe in the first and second amendment? Or is there something wrong with "White People". Is his Church a Christian Church in name only. Why did he stay in Rev. Wright's Church 20 years? What Bible do they use? Add Michelle Obama's comments and the picture is becoming pretty clear. Face it, a conservative, God fearing person who loves America is something a socialist will never understand. Mind you, I said 'loves America', not it's anti-american government.

Going the way of Rome

Going the way of Rome by Joseph Farah, WND

"The budget should be balanced. Public spending should be reduced. The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered, and assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt."
– Marcus Tulius Cicero 45 B.C.
Not long after making the prophetic proclamation above, Marcus Tulius Cicero, a Roman senator, was assassinated.
It's not always easy telling the hard truths.
It's not always safe.
It's not always profitable.
But tell them we must.
They say those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. I believe the U.S. is slouching toward Rome – and a Cicero is nowhere to be found.
Where are we today compared to the empire that lasted 500 years?
National debt: $10 trillion
U.S. federal budget over $3 trillion. That's 50 percent higher than it was in 2000.
Trade deficit: $58 billion
No meaningful borders, with record immigration levels and no chance for assimilation
Total breakdown of education system
No common faith or unifying moral principles that bind the nation together
Even age-old institutions like marriage and parenthood are being redefined
In a time of relative peace, our military forces are stationed in more than 100 foreign nations
And now America finds itself in an election year in which there are plenty of Mark Antonys but no Ciceros – no wise old voices of reason, common sense and good judgment.
The power of the state is on the rise, and the power of the people is on the decline.
We have our own versions of the Colosseum, albeit somewhat more humane. The American people are kept distracted by bread and circuses – NASCAR, the NFL, "American Idol."
Votes are being purchased by foolish promises of free health care and nebulous pledges of "change" and "hope."
There isn't much to believe in any more, so politicians invent new religions – like "global warming." If only we pay our tithes in "carbon credits," the gods of climate change will be merciful to us, we are assured. But if we do not reach deep into our pockets now and make sacrificial offerings, doom will be upon us all in the coming decades.
This was the nation that gave the world the concepts of self-government, removing the shackles from the people and placing them on the government, individual rights as unalienable gifts from God.
This was the nation that welcomed and rewarded personal achievement – recognizing that it was a blessing not just to the one honored, but to all.
Today the highest virtues are little more than meaningless, empty words – "tolerance," "diversity," "pluralism," "multiculturalism."
There is no right and no wrong. Up is down, black is white, left is right.
It's a mixed-up, muddled-up, shook-up world – except for Jesus.
Who would have believed the greatest and longest-lasting experiment in freedom and self-government would end like this?
Who would have believed a nation that raised up so many great minds of politics, science, business and philosophy could be so easily led astray?
Who would have believed a nation built of sacrifice and honor would give up its birthright for a mess of pottage?
Do I sound a tad pessimistic?
I believe I have every reason to play that note.
Yet, because I am an American, I remain hopeful our nation's better angels will yet prevail.
There's a remnant out there who will understand every word I write. It is in them my hope is kindled. It is in them – and the One they serve.

Rome went from Paganism to Christianity. America is going from Christianity to Paganism.

A real Border Fence

Israeli Government knows how to secure their borders. The U. S. could learn a lot from them, but what does G. W. Bush say to the Israeli Prime Minister? "Mr. Olert, take down this wall." Whats this, a Reagan wanna be. Does he know who our real friends are? Even Condoleezza Rice is killing Jews by pressuring them to remove roadblocks they put up trying to stop suicide bombers.
