“There are some principles worth fighting for & worth dying for”

American Minute with Bill Federer

I am one of those who believe there are some principles worth fighting for & worth dying for” -U.S. Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall

 The morning of December 7, 1941, Rev. Peter Marshall addressed the midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, class of ’42. 

At the last minute, he set aside his prepared remarks and preach a prophetic message, “Go Down, Death.” 

Within an hour after he finished, news of Imperial Japan’s attack at Pearl Harbor spread across the nation. 

Peter Marshall stated: 

“I am one of those who believe that there are some principles worth fighting for and worth dying for if need be.”

New Science a Game Changer on Trans Sports

New Science a Game Changer on Trans Sports

by Tony Perkins

One of the very first things Joe Biden has promised to do as president is abolish girls’ sports. It’s a ludicrous thing to make a priority, but the former Obama VP insists — like most liberals — that “transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.” It’s the fair thing to do, Biden argues. But is it? New research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine says no…

No matter what you think about the election and election fraud, it appears more likely that Joe Biden will become the next president. And, if he does become president, Americans are in store for perhaps the most pro-abortion presidential administration in history.

  • If you want an idea of what Joe Biden would do as president, look no further than his running mate Kamala Harris. Not only does she support abortion on demand like Joe Biden, but she literally voted for infanticide and against a law to protect babies who survive abortions.
  • A Biden-Harris administration would push Big Abortions global agenda from day 1 Here is what you can expect.
  • On their first week in office, Biden and Harris would overturn a pro-life rule President Trump put in place and force Americans to fund the International Planned Parenthood abortion business and its global abortion agenda. That means your tax dollars will pay for promoting and performing abortions around the world — killing babies in nations across the globe.
  • Meanwhile, Biden, Harris and Nancy Pelosi are already working on legislation to force Americans to pay directly for abortions across America. Just as we’re finally saving more babies from abortions than ever before, their abortion agenda could result in forcing you to pay for hundreds of thousands of abortions every single year.
  • They want to restore all the various funding cuts President Trump made to Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding.
  • They want to force Christians, churches and Catholic nuns to pay for abortions in our health care plans.
  • They want to overturn every single pro-life law nationwide.
  • They want to make Roe v. Wade a federal law that would implement abortions up to birth in all 50 states.
  • And they want to make abortion a worldwide human rights — making killing babies legal in every country worldwide.

FYI: Where Does Joe Biden Stand on Abortion?

When the First World War began, British women suffragists sent an Open Christmas Letter “To the Women of Germany and Austria” imploring peace as the first Christmas of the war approached.

Pope Benedict XV, December 7, 1914, begged for a truce, asking: 
“that the guns may fall silent at least upon the night the angels sang.”
These requests were officially rebuffed…

Devotional Thought for Today – 10-12-2020

8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. Proverbs 1:8-9

AMP and RVR 1960 


CHAINS

I remember back in the day when men thought it was cool to wear some of the gaudiest chains around their necks. I am not sure who started the craze but I am certainly glad it’s gone (or should be).

Here the bible makes clear what our true ornamentation should be the righteous teachings of our parents

I know some of you are going to say or throw the stats at me about the number of single family homes and parentless children. Then reader, you as aunt, uncle, brother sister, grandparent, etc. step up and impart the Law and Wisdom of God. If behoves you to give them the chains to wear.
