What Did Our President Just Do?
No doubt you are aware that the US and Iran came to terms this past week on an agreement concerning the Iranian nuke program. As more details get out to the general public it is becoming obvious that our President capitulated on practically every detail of the agreement. There are a number of troubling developments in this story that are leaving many Americans scratching their heads in astonishment. Why are we giving up such ground to a sworn enemy? Why are we proceeding down a path that practically guarantees a nuclear arms race in the Mideast? Why are we putting our own nation at greater risk by allowing this dangerous regime a pathway to nuclear tipped ICBMs that can reach our homeland? Wow!
Perhaps Congress will refuse to approve this agreement, but even so the President has the power to veto their action. Unless Congress has the fortitude to override a promised Presidential veto this agreement will go forward. My great concern is the simple fact that this agreement strengthens the dangerous regime in Iran. Not only does this create new tensions in the troubled Mideast, but it puts our own nation at greater risk. I guess the President disagrees. Keep praying for your homeland. We need to wake up to the World War that is already raging! America is the world’s only hope of defeating the oppressive spirit of Islam that is threatening the stability of the entire world. Capitulating to this fascist enemy is a gigantic step in the wrong direction.
Are You in the Battle Against Pornography?
A recent headline states “1 of 3 10-year-olds View Porn.” The article reads in part: “The National Center on Sexual Exploitation assembled public health advocates Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center to alert congressional staff members about the new “public health crisis” American society in undergoing as a result of children having virtually unlimited access to Internet pornography.
According to the group of public health experts, younger children’s mental growth and social understanding concerning sex is being severely impeded by their proliferating use of online pornography, the Christian Post reports. (click here for the entire article)
Pornography will enslave your children and grandchildren. Fight this battle! Keep your family away from this evil. To do so you simply must rid your home of pornography in any form. It can be done if you are diligent. This issue brings up one of the basics of parenting. Parents must know where junior is and what he is doing at all times. At least that should be the mindset of a parent. Do you know if your child has wondered into the world of pornography? If you are on the job as a parent not only will you know but you will prevent it from happening. Grandparents can help in this battle as well and in some cases they are the front line of defense. I challenge everyone who reads this to declare war on this evil and to do everything in your power to keep its destructive influence out of the life of your family.
Let me conclude this post with a suggestion that you read Ephesians 5:1-17 sometime soon. This passage of Scripture teaches us to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Rather, we are to understand the will of the Lord and walk accordingly. We are to “abhor evil and to cleave to that which is good” (Romans 12:9). How else can we be the light of the world?
Thank you for our prayers.
