Sunday Assembly—their video portrays a gathering of believers singing, raising their hands, a look of joy in fellowship with one another and in outreach to the community. Celebrating LIFE!
. . . except this gathering of “believers” introduce themselves as “Sunday Assembly”—“a godless community that meets monthly to hear great talks, connect for service projects, sing songs and generally celebrate life!”
Except the real celebration is one of death—not life!
When Thomas, who doubted, asked Jesus, “How can we know the way?” . . . Jesus answered: “I am the way, and the truth and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
And Isaiah warns: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.”
My prayer is that the church of Jesus Christ will be a kingdom force—well versed in biblical clarity —celebrating LIFE—life eternal!
Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles, CA
(Verses quoted are from John 14:5/6 and Isaiah 5:20)
Some of the greatest abuses in recent America have been at the hands of Supreme Court Justices!
Because Supreme Court Justices have life-long tenure, it becomes easier to disregard the intent of the words of the Constitution.
I say that in light of their more recent obsession with consulting European governments and legal documents for precedence—rather than respecting the intent of our own Constitution.
There are brilliant minds on the Court who do respect and revere the Constitution—but the death of Justice Antonin Scalia was an enormous loss to Constitutional integrity.
We’re mistaken when we say, “Well, that’s the law of the land.” The Constitution is the law of the land. And the Supreme Court has gotten it wrong numerous times—legalized abortion, and same-sex marriage just to name two!
No human, flawed court is “supreme.”
Political correctness too often twists an offer of hope into hatred!
Preaching God’s Word includes calling evil for what it is, and warning people of the consequences of sin for their own good.
Bu in recent years, the politically correct form of hate speech is defined as anything that goes against libertine sexual practices or other so-called self-destructive decisions.
In European nations, preaching the Word of God has been attacked legally when God’s Truth runs counter to cultural correctness.
A Swedish pastor was sentenced to prison for preaching a sermon on biblical sexual behavior. His case went to the Swedish Supreme Court. He was acquitted but the prosecutor told him to “get a new Bible”—one that didn’t reference homosexual behavior in a negative light.
Equal justice for all is the standard that God has given for the benefit of us all!
Political correctness is so ingrained in our culture that objectivity or reason is inconsequential!
Be careful not to use language or behavior that may offend someone!
So the destruction of a child in the womb is a woman “exercising her right to choose”; marriage is a “love” relationship between any combination of men and women; a “thug” is behaviorally-challenged.
One group forcing another to use concocted terms obscures reality and purposely creates confusion. Terminology becomes the issue. Forget any objective dealing with real issues.
And typically the users of PC tactics typically hate biblical truth, traditional morality, sexual restraint, personal responsibility—or any other concept based on unchanging truth revealed by an almighty God for our individual and society’s good.
Tolerance in today’s culture is not a two-way street!
We can’t allow ourselves to be coerced into doing nothing and saying nothing!
The truth is, we’ve “institutionalized” illness and death so that we don’t have to live in reality!
We’ve underestimated the demonic nature of the “cult of death.”
It has desensitized us to the evil that lurks within our nation.
If we were people truly walking in righteousness, there would be more of an uprising against the wickedness that wants people dead rather than alive, whether that be the preborn or the sick and elderly.
The bottom line? Will the law protect those who cannot protect themselves?
Once the mindset is accepted that someone has the authority to decide whether it’s better for another person to die or not—involuntary euthanasia is the result!
Despite the reasons and excuses, as Christians we know every single life is valuable. God is sovereign over all.
And He determines the moment of life and death!
A government fiat. To kill babies. Forced on us. Period!
I was stunned when the attorney called informing me that our church insurance was now covering elective abortions. How could that be? But he was right.
In 2014, a bureaucrat in an office in our State Capitol arbitrarily decided that every single insurance provider would pay for the killing of preborn babies. We weren’t informed by the state, or by our insurance company.
And even though religious organizations are not directly paying for sterilization, contraceptives and abortions, they are covering the cost through a third party—violating their religious convictions.
In the months since, our church, along with other churches and Christian colleges in California, entered into a lawsuit.
When the freedom of choice is taken away, infringement on religious liberty soon follows!
