D.C. In August

The dog days of summer are in full swing and August arrives tomorrow suddenly and without warning.

Does anyone know what just happened?

The last 193 days have been interesting, perilous, maddening, rewarding, and…well I’m sure I could go on.

Why Do We Trust Them?

Lance Fairchok wrote an interesting blog post at American Thinker yesterday when it comes to trusting Democrats on any issue, much less the Barack Obama birth certificate controversy.

As Lance says, where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Thank You Andrew McCarthy

A couple of days ago I wrote a somewhat blistering commentary on National Review Online’s editorial on the Barack Obama birth certificate controversy.

My intent on writing “NRO – No Real Obligation” was to ensure my readers and those of National Review Online understood the difference between a CERTIFICATION of Birth which Obama has released and the long-form CERTIFICATE of Birth that he has protected at all costs.

Multitasking

One of the reasons I’m being told, from respondents and columnists, we need to not focus on the Obama birth certificate issue is because it is taking focus off of our fighting Obama’s policies. Also it seems as though some of our brightest in conservative circles are falling for the White House talking points.

NRO – No Real Obligation

…to the truth that is.

I’m speaking of the National Review Online and their latest editorial.

There you have it! The so-called conservative leaders are doing the heavy lifting for the Left once again.

Oh Oh Oh O’Reilly!!

Bill the Buffoon O’Reilly just had a lawyer from the Southern Poverty Law Center on who is demanding CNN fire Lou Dobbs. The Buffoon said they (I assume his show) looked into the birth certificate issue last year and they saw it and hey, it’s solved…no issue!

Add that to what Faux News did this weekend on Geraldo Rivera’s show with Ann Coulter and Mike Huckabee (just when you where winning me back Governor)…

Dear Mrs. Kravitz

Frank Salvato has a hilarious editorial at the New Media Journal. It is hilarious because there is so much truth to it, and Frank’s parody of Congress is spot on. Just click on Mrs. Kravitz’ picture to read Frank’s editorial.

Do Politics and Religion Mix? (Part 2)

Christian Politics…

…try using that term today, Christian politics or better yet, Christian politician. Do politics and religion mix? How many of you have heard of Charles Finney? I quoted Finney in my book and Finney said this about Christians and politics:

    The church must take right ground in regard to politics . . . The time has come for Christians to vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics, or the Lord will curse them . . . God cannot sustain this free and blessed country that we love and pray for, unless the Church will take right ground. Politics are part of religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to God . . . God will bless or curse this nation according to the course Christians take in politics.

Too Many Obadiahs

I praise God for our pastor Dr. Dennis Brunet. He consistently preaches biblical truth and in this day in which we live he has turned the heat up on the truth. If the hate crimes legislation passes Bro Dennis will be one of the first preachers in trouble in America. If only the majority of our pulpits across America would preach the biblical truth that this apostate nation so desperately needs to hear. If only the majority of Christian leaders with political influence would stand on biblical principles without bringing pragmatism into the equation.

Our pastor has been preaching on Elijah and yesterday he preached a sermon from the story of Elijah that I have never heard any other pastors preach. I’m sure it has been done but it would no doubt be the exception instead of the rule. Why is that? Coach Dave Daubenmire put it best in his latest article “Christian Pimps”:

Does This Offend You?

Some of Jesus’ teachings are very hard to understand and accept. I confess that I have been offended by the Word of God at times. It is offensive to my flesh, my sinful nature; because when I hear It I am without excuse.

    “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.” (Romans 1:18-23)

Unless I Had Believed

Are America’s better days behind her? Have we lost the battle for the soul of our nation? Is it possible that God has righteously turned His back on us and we cannot recover? Can we ever recover from what Steve Deace describes as “more sinners than saints”? Some days I believe the answers to the first three questions are yes; and the answer to the last is no.

But that is because I am seeing with eyes of circumstances instead of eyes of faith. Whenever I’m feeling discouraged or confused I look to the Psalms for direction. This morning I thought I knew what the Lord wanted me to write on one thing and when I sat down there was nothing. I begin praying and meditating beginning to wonder if I had reached the end of this journey with Him. It was a strange feeling; what would those who read this think? I knew immediately that was a silly question because if I am writing this for you then I have lost the original purpose of this devotional. It’s to share with you my conversations with God. Now more confusion began to set in and the Holy Spirit simply said, “Read the Psalms David.”
