It's about time. I have always considered Mr. Falwell Jr. to be a poor replacement of his father. The things we hear from Liberty University these days are not complemtary. This latest episode hopefully will be the final straw. We know reasonable parents who have spent good money to send their children to this university. Even joking about marital infidelity... What about avoiding all appearance of evil.
I sincerely hope that Mr Falwell is led to repentance and wisdom that comes from a deep and sincere faith in Jesus Christ.
This is pretty convincing evidence that the Cultural Revolution 2.0 is not limited to within the borders of the PRC but has spread further to the US. It gives credence to those, like me, who have suggested we are in the midst of a Marxist uprising. And it points to the growing spread of an incidious evil so pernacious as to attempt to slip in undetected. Some may cheer at its arrival. Others of us must fallen upon our knees before the Lord and cry for His mercy upon our nation.
Nothing like being in the South, Dr. Tim. Mama used to brag about having something blooming in her garden all year round and her ability to have a year round growing season. She would also brag about local muscadine and scuppernong grapes. Thanks for bringing back those fine memories.
I believe, Jim, that state and local authorities are fully engaged. However, the Senator obviously desires federal charges be filed. The AG is a key element to this effort as the appropriate point of contact for someone in the Senator's position.

Brother Wayfarer, they are doing the same within the Presbyterian Church in America. At least for the regular Joe Baptist church, they can go more independent. We've known some independent Presbyterian churches over the years, but the term is oxymoronic. It leaves us without a home.
This is a fight for the hearts and minds of Christians. Let us not leave our first love, the Lord Jesus, for these fleeting fancies of utopia in our time based on Marxism. The Marxist wants to build what humanity lost in Eden at the Fall with their own re-created world, built in their own image. The Lord is coming back and will remake this world Himself. Better to wait for the Master than trust the hack now.
Jim Lincoln wrote: excerpts from, "Fauci Reveals He Has Received Death Threats And His Daughters Have Been Harassed" Mike, as, the pope said prudence should have been in situations like these. Many people have freedom to follow Jim Jones to French Guiana. I would say they should have been discouraged from doing so.
Jim, no one can condone mistreatment of Dr. Fauci or his family. But there is a fundamental problem. The "truth" is notably shifting here and there. I can't tell you that I've heard the truth from anyone about COVID-19, because when the story changes, you know that there's something amiss. I'm not say that's purposeful, but if you want to rely on "science" and not engage your own powers of analysis of available data, which is an important step in the scientific process, you are leaving yourself vulnerable to severe manipulation, blowing with every wind of doctrine.
To attempt to equate not following social distancing guidelines to migrating to Jonestown is disingenuous.
So here's the problem. DoD is tied to Congress. So while Senator Cruz, to his credit, is sticking up for the rights of the "religious," there are other elected representatives in DC pushing for better protection of the LGBT community, and others pulling for particular pieces of the culture war. DoD cannot defend itself. This is, in fact, how women came to become part of the Armed Services.
Another factor is the promotion of liberal chaplains over Biblical ones.
The military was seen as one of the last bastions of conservative thought and mindset. How that can be attacked has been the focus of the Progressive Left for quite a while.
Certainly right, Brother John. We saw camera footage on the news the other night.
Ammonium nitrate is nothing to play with. There have been similar accidents here in the US.
I read elsewhere that the explosion decimated a large part of the city, including the Christian section.
It's a good reminder that our lives are in His hands. At any moment we could be ushered into the presence of the Lord in heavrn, whether that be thru a disease, other health condition, some sort of accident, or thru a purposeful act of violence against us. Are each of us prepared for that day?
It is also a reminder that our lives could be turned upside down in an instant. How would we then live, care for our families, and care for those within our churches?
Speaking of wives, Brother Frank, we received excellent news regarding my wife today. They caught the cancer early and she does not require any further treatment. Grateful for the Lord's lovingkindness.
Stevenr, you have a good point. However, being counter-revolutionaries, our protests will not be as well tolerated by the authorities. There was a news report yesterday about someone writing the "black unborn lives matter" on the street in Washington DC and that they were arrested. Others can paint "approved" messages in permanent paint on the streets of major cities.
I hope no one is surprised. A few years ago, as a result of having a educator discount (a homeschool perk) at Barnes & Noble, we were pummeled with email promoting Chesley Clinton's new book about primary and secondary school educators encouraging students to participate in the social justice agenda. Barnes & Noble was so excited, and was hosting seminars on implementation. This has been going on for a long time.
Meanwhile, it also shows that Progressives have infiltrated and are now running much of the educational system here in the US. In the South, that's an important aspect to turning more those conservative states with a strong Christian presence into socialist states like many of those in New England, California, etc. What my mother was taught in what should have been a solid denominational junior college in Raleigh, NC, in the late 40s/early 50s was just the start.
States would do well to purge their educational systems of these Leftists. With the number of parents opting to homeschool their children, this lessens the influence as well. But do not expect the Leftists to give up without a fight. They want this nation's children under their thumb and marching to their tune, ignoring the Lord's commands to parents and especially fathers to raise their children in the n
Amen, Brother Frank! I certainly didn't anticipate the speed at which Christians have been curtailed nor the issue - COVID-19 response - over which our rights would erode. My guess was the LGBT movement and in slower stages.
It is gratifying to see men "play the man," as it were and not bow to pressure. We need to be ready to do the same, fully equipped in the full armour of God, and having done all, to stand.
I don't agree with certain aspects of MacArthur's interpretation of things and situations, but certainly appreciate his stance. California has long desired to rid itself of anyone who shares the word of God as the Lord opposes many of the concepts that the state is implementing and enforcing.
At some point, hard decisions about remaining in California will have to be made for those who's trust is in Jesus Christ. Remaining means facing greater persecution. Fleeing may mean loss of family ties, family property, and livelihood.
May the Lord preserve His saints and prove to this watching world that He does not take their mistreatment lightly.
