Dr. King and the Nature of Law

In an eloquent defense of life, marriage, and religious liberty known as The Manhattan Declaration, authors Chuck Colson, Professor Robert George, and Dr. Timothy George wrote, “There is no more eloquent defense of the rights and duties of religious conscience than the one offered by Martin Luther King, Jr., in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”

Devotional thought for Today – 01/18/2021

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Philippians 2:14-16

Philippians 2:12-18

This morning among my devotionals and bible verse reads was this gem. It got me thinking about all the grumblings or murmurings  I have done this past year. Not intentionally mind you but I am sure some of my posts related to my frustration with the current political climate in America came across as grumbling and murmurings. 

It is human nature to complain. I do not think it is biblically wrong to complain, I but I strongly believe it is biblically wrong to grumble and murmur,  v.14.

In context, Paul here v.12-18 is explaining how we as Christians ought to live. The emphasis is, look at what Christ has done for us, and you are complaining about a little difficulty in life? 

Again even applying outside the Spiritual, we can point out the issues of the world without seeming like just another angry complainer.  Of course, God through Paul does not leave us on our own, v.15  prove yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish in the midst of a [morally] crooked and [spiritually] perverted generation, among whom you are seen as bright lights [beacons shining out clearly] in the world [of darkness]. 

In other words, if you are going to open your mouth do so in such a manner that Glorifies God and edifies the body of Christ (the church).

Civility is the keystone of this Replubic

This is the kind of cooperation and civility that I remember from our rightly ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES when I was young. Not the bitterness and infighting of today. 

Pa. state reps reach across the aisle to promote civility; the keystone of democracy

Pennsylvania state Rep. Greg Rothman, of Cumberland County, R-87th Dist., right, and Rep. Stephen Kinsey, of Philadelphia, D-201st Dist., left, are the co-founders of a new bipartisan caucus that aims to promote civility and enact meaningful policy to help the people of Pennsylvania.

As a Democratic state representative from Philadelphia and a Republican state representative from Cumberland County, we developed a lasting friendship that started with a simple “hello” on the House floor. An effort that has become critical to us is restoring civility and bipartisanship in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Toward that end, we have joined forces to form a first-of-its-kind bipartisan caucus for the upcoming 2021-22 legislative session.

SUNDAY SERMON SERIES – The World, the Flesh, and the Devil

Thurs Night Alive" Ephesians 2: 1-10 The Walking Dead - YouTube

Ephesians 2:1-10


COMMENTS 

There is a popular show on TV called The Walking Dead. Although I have never seen an actual episode, the commercial made it clear it is all about the aftermath of an apocalypse and zombies. 

While the bible does not specifically refer to the unsaved as “zombies” but when we really think about it that is exactly what we were. Those apart from Christ are walking about the earth with no hope, children of wrath, just waiting for the day of eternal judgment. 


SERMON

Today’s sermon comes from Voddie Bauchman, who at the time was Pastoring a church in Houston, TX but now is Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Zambia. 

Voddie Baucham: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil

To become a Christian is to be enlisted in a war, one that is fought on three main fronts. In this session, Rev. Voddie Baucham will remind us how the world, the flesh, and the devil work against the kingdom of God. He will explain why battle, struggle, and hardship should not surprise us as Christians.

Jefferson Opposed Censorship of Opinions

Yesterday, January 16, 2021, was Religious Freedom Day here in America. Something almost completely ignored by the media. 

American Minute with Bill Federer

Jefferson Opposed Censorship of Opinions: Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom & How Courts have taken Freedom away!

On … we commemorate the … anniversary of the passing of a State law that has shaped and secured our cherished legacy of religious liberty.” – proclaimed President Donald J. Trump, January 16, 2018.

President Trump continued:
“Our forefathers, seeking refuge from religious persecution, believed in the eternal truth that freedom is not a gift from the government, but a sacred right from Almighty God. On the coattails of the American Revolution, on January 16, 1786, the Virginia General Assembly passed the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom … This seminal bill, penned by Thomas Jefferson, states that, ‘all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities.'”

Jeremiah 9

Jeremiah 9 is a continuation from Chapter 8, a lament of the destruction of Judah and Jerusalem because of the nation of Israel’s rebellious (turning their backs on God) ways. 

As bad a Jeremiah feels about this he wants to escape the events, v.2. I think so that he would not be a witness to the final days of complete debauchery/disobedience more so than the destruction. 

The people should be wailing and crying out for forgiveness but,  their religiosity is superficial.  God uses the rite of circumcision, to make His point saying in verses 23-26, we see that righteousness is not a compliance issue, but a heart issue. God says all who are only circumcised in the foreskin, those ones who are wise and skillful boast in their own insight’,  but not in the heart will be judged swiftly and righteously.

Many years ago I went forward to an altar call said a little prayer, “got saved”, and all was supposedly all good. EXCEPT like Judah my heart was uncircumcised, I wanted the get out of jail card but not the LORD of my life part. 

The question for today is your heart circumcised?

The 1786 Lesson That Could Save 2021

Now that some of the shock of the last two weeks is starting to wear off, most Americans have the same question: can we actually pick up the pieces and move on? With 80 percent of the country worried the nation is falling apart, there’s a lot of concern that the nation’s days are numbered. These are the times when the only way forward is looking back and rallying around the principles that made America exceptional in the first place. Luckily for us, there’s a day this weekend that gives all of us the chance to do just that…

Can you believe the hypocrisy?

The Heritage Foundation

Reopening our economy is vital to recovering from the effects of Covid-19. We’ve got to trust Americans to make decisions for their lives so that their businesses and communities can thrive.

So, it’s really frustrating to see government overreaches of power to shut down society. To me, the only thing worse than draconian lockdowns (like a mayor in Illinois encouraging the cops to find his own wife!) is hypocritical politicians doing the very things that they’ve made illegal for their constituents.

That’s why I wanted to make sure that you saw this brand new resource from Heritage. It tracks officials who violate their own coronavirus restrictions. Take a look here: https://www.heritage.org/data-visualizations/public-health/covid-hypocrisy-policymakers-breaking-their-own-rules/

We’re already up to 50 rule-breakers and counting. It would be laughable if it wasn’t true.
