Faith-Based

President Bush had a great idea with the faith-based organizations for where better to get the help. The best help comes from the church but how do we keep the government out? Right now the government is controlled by good people who wouldn’t abuse their power, but what happens if that changes? I’m afraid that one day we will be told that we have to hire gays to work in our churches. I’m not a bigot, but we should have the right to hire and fire on Biblical principles.

An amendment would protect the hiring practices of Head Start providers. Efforts are under way in the House to change language in the School Readiness Act that would make it illegal for faith-based organizations to hire only those who share their values. Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., introduced an amendment that would exempt faith-based groups from being sued for religious discrimination. “If we don't allow faith-based organizations to do this, then we're undermining their ability to exist in an environment where they can provide services,” he said. “It also opens them up to potential lawsuits if they hire those who do not believe in their faith-based values.” www.family.org

The other thing that we should consider is whether we want our children being taught by gay teachers. I know that discrimination is wrong but in this case I think the parents should be able to say who teaches their children. There are well intentioned people who forget how impressionable children are and don’t have the ability to separate the lesson from the teacher. Dr. Dobson said about homosexuality that “individuals are not born with this condition, neither do they typically choose it.” Many find themselves in a state of confusion not realizing that it is being forced on them.

It is my opinion that many gays were molested as youths. That first sexual encounter can affect how a person looks on sex and themselves. I know that we are told that most child molestation is done by heterosexuals, but that is a little deceiving for they twist those figures by saying that if the molester is also in a heterosexual relationship then he can’t be gay. The problem is that if they are molesting someone of the same sex that is a homosexual act. It is just as bad if the child was being molested by the opposite sex, but when it’s done by a gay the child can find himself forced into homosexuality in a way that he may feel like it was in his genes. Any way you look at it, which really messes up the child and can happen even in good families.

The Reagan’s adopted their son Michael because they wanted to give him a good life, but as most influential people they used daycare to help with their busy lives. It was at his daycare that he was molested and had years of trouble dealing with it. To my knowledge he was never tempted with homosexuality, but he had a lot of other problems associated with the molestation. My point is that we have to keep our children safe from any possibility of even the influence of homosexuality.

Focus of the Family has a good site that deals with many questions, http://www.focusonyourchild.com/hottopics/A0001284.cfm. So what do you think, should we let anyone teach?

I want thank the blog for letting me post an article like this. I didn’t think they would take one from a conservative but they said that they wanted to have an open discussion format.

    I awoke with this in my mind. “If we never let go of self long enough to let the LOVE of GOD in.”
    I have for several years been awakened with thoughts and ideas on my mind that are then put upon my heart to relay them to others in some form. I believe these to be works of God's Holy Spirit. For if we believe what has been written within the Scriptures We must also believe that Our Creator God is also the same one that BREATHED life into that first Man called Adam. Making HIM a living breathing soul. = spirit. in the Bible that I have read and depend on as being THE BOOK TO LIVE BY as being the Written WORD OF GOD. It has been written.
    In John 4; 23:&24:
    But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
    God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
    Before I came in here to post this This is what I wrote down . On a piece of paper.
    “If we as a people never let go of self long enough to let the love of God be written upon our hearts None could ever be saved. This is what love really is letting go of self. Yet having a love for one's self, enough to not want harm to be done to you or your brothers
    To bad that the fashism of dictorial governments have yet to learn this lesson from OUR God.”
    I was given to come in and post about this. In the process of doing so. I was led to also Give these Scriptures to be posted. The two from John above, and the following. ones.
    Zachariah Ch. 12; & 14;
    John 3;5:,6: & 14; 17:
    Ephesian 5;9:
    and last but not least
    Revelation Ch 14; 13: & Ch 22:
    Several years ago I had read Revelation.
    14;13:
    I had to ask myself at that time. “How do the DEAD, DIE “In THE LORD”.
    IF WE as CHRISTIANS and JEWS OF ISRAEL. AND AS AMERICANS CAN NOT BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES THAT IN GEESIS 1;1: IS THE WRITTEN WORD AND WE cannot believe what is written IN THIS BOOK OF The OLD TESTAMENT. THEN WHAT is ANY OF OUR FAITH BUILT UPON. IF IT is not BUILT UPON THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD WE HAVE HAD GIVEN TO US so very LONG AGO………… and THE NAME ABOVE EVERY NAME HAS STOOD THE THROUGH ALL GENERATIONAL LINES FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE WORD THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US ALL TO LIVE BY???????? FAITH … I MIGHT SAY AT SUCH A TIME AS THIS TIME IN HISTORY OF THE WORLD THAT ONLY OUR GOD CREATOR GOD COULD HAVE CREATED FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME!!!!!!!! FOR MANKIND………. AND is THE FOUNDATION OF US ALL!!!! no matter who we are or where we live on this PLANET EARTH!!!!!
    EITHER GOD is TRUE. and HIS WRITTEN WORDS ARE TRUTH . OR WE ALL ARE doomed to HELL FOREVER and EVER with NO HOPE or VISION FOR ANY TOMORROW AT ALL for any of us??????????
    Rom 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
    When HISTORY IS NOT REMEMBERED THAT HAAS ALREADY HAPPENED BEFORE BECAUSE OF HATRED OF MANKIND AND INHUMANITY TO MAN IS FORGOTTEN SUCH AS A ADOLPH HITLER??????? THEN HISTORY TENDS TO REPEAT ITSELF TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME…
    WHEN WILL WE AS MANKIND THAT WOULD RATHER HATE OUR BROTHERS. THEN TO BE OUR BROTHERS KEEPER.. LEARN THE LESSONS OF OUR FATHERS BEFORE US???????
    WAKE UP ALL THAT ARE ON THIS PLANET EARTH THIS DAY!!!!!!!!!!! OR HEAVEN SHALL COME DOWN ON ALL OUR HEADS IN ONE SWIFT FINAL WORD FROM THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY AND IT SHALL BE A WORD THAT WILL NEVER AGAIN BE HEARD AT ALL BECAUSE MANKIND CHOSE TO NOT LISTEN TO THE SWORD THAT CUTS DEEP AND SWIFT AND SHARPER THEN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD!!!!!!!!
    EITHER GOD S WORD IS A FAITHFUL AND TRUE WORD WE CAN ALL BELIEVE IN OR WE ALL MUST DENY GOD AND HIS GIFT TO US ALL!!!!!!!!!!!! THE LIFE WE HAVE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    HAS HE PROMISED ANY OF US A TOMORROW????????? DO ANY OF US AND CAN ANY OF US REST ASSURED OF A TOMORROW????
    BELIEVERS IN THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON , THAT GOD HAS RAIED HIM FROM THE DEAD. and CONFESS HIM WITH OUR MOUTH CAN REST ASSURED THAT YES WE HAVE A TOMORROW. IF NOT HERE THEN THERE.
    NO HOPE IN THIS THEN we just as well GIVE IT ALL UP AND drop the BOMB ON THE MIDDLE EAST and be done with it all .. OR WE CAN sit back and LET THE EVIL OF UNBELIEVING MEN THAT CLAIM TO KNOW GOD DESTROY THE WHOLE MIDDLE EAST AND ALL THE WORLD AND MANKIND WITH IT.. AND FOR WHAT??????? BECAUSE OF HATRED THAT IS SO DEEP INGRAINED THEY CANNOT SEE WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO THEMSELVES LET ALONE TO THEIR BROTHER ISRAEL!!!!!!!! JACOB, and DO NOT FORGET the GRANSON of Joseph, JUST ONE OF THE Sons of ISRAEL, EPHRAIM. OF course all come from the same SEED OF THE OLD TESTAMENT FATHER ABRAHAM. YET IT HAS BEEN WRITTEN
    2Corinthians 3:15- 18: But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
    Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
    Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
    But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
    GOD is ONCE AGAIN POURING OUT HIS SPIRIT UPON ALL FLESH. JUST AS IT HAS ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN.
    IT BEGAN ON THAT FIRST DAY OF PENTECOST. that has been RECORDED IN THE CHRONICALS OF TIME AND HISTORY WE CALL THE HOLY SCRIPTURES. AND NAMELY THE BOOK OF ACTS IN the NEW TESTAMENT that IS ONLY A FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHECIES OF THE FATHERS OF OLD…
    What then are we to DISCERN and KNOW OF THIS BOOK CALLED REVELATION???? written BY SOMEONE CALLED JOHN???? IS THAT THE ONE THAT was BEFORE JESUS CAME. THE ONE ALSO WRITTEN OF IN MALACHI 4; and MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, & JOHN, and Chapter 40 of ISAIAH and also being testified to BY how many??????????? down through the ages of time and generations of MANKIND THAT is RECORDED IN GENESIS —– REVELATION??????????
    we should be worshiping and thanking GOD INSTEAAD OF WAARRING AND FIGHTING with each other .. will people change???? AND be able to keep from destroying all that God has CREATED ONLY GOD HAS the answer to that ….
    AND HE HAS HAD IT WRITTEN THUS; The earth is the LORD'S, the fulness thereof; the World and they that dwell therein.
    Psalm 24;1: , ICorinthians 10;26:
