Evangelical Christians are already beginning the process of selecting the Republican presidential candidate whom they can anoint as their successor to George W. Bush. Somehow, evangelicals have this deluded idea that President Bush is one of them. How they came to this delusion both fascinates and escapes me. Bush is anything but one of them. However, most evangelicals believe he is, and today it seems that illusion is greater than reality, anyway. Bush proves that more than anyone I have ever known. But enough about Bush.

The question burning in the minds of evangelicals today is: Which Republican candidate for president will we anoint? There are several possibilities, but apparently Congressman Ron Paul is not one of them.

For example, Jerry Falwell's widely distributed National Liberty Journal, in its March 2007 edition, had a maj…

THE EMINENT DOMAIN THREAT TO CHURCHES

From Idaho Values Alliance

Last summer’s Supreme Court Kelo decision was a legal, constitutional, and public policy disaster no matter how it is viewed. The Court twisted the Constitution’s eminent domain provision beyond recognition to justify the involuntary transfer of property from one private party to another. The Court gave local government virtually unlimited freedom to condemn any property it wants and turn it over to private developers. This, of course, is simply a form of legalized theft.



The original purpose of eminent domain was to grant government authority to take land from private citizens for public use, historically understood to refer to things like roads and bridges. The Constitution, representing the will of the people, insists that owners be given “just compensation” for their loss, and on that basis does permit the transfer of property from private hands to government entities f…

Husham Al-Husainy
With heads bowed reverently, Democrats were led in prayer yesterday by a Muslim imam who essentially asked Allah to assist in converting the party members to Islam, according to a scholar and author.

Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch and author of "The Truth about Muhammad," took note of the prayer given at the Democratic National Committee winter meeting by Husham Al-Husainy, imam of the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center, a shiite mosque in Dearborn, Mich.

According to a transcript of the prayer, which can be seen on a video clip provided by HotAir.com, the imam said:


In the name of God the most merciful, the most compassionate. We thank you, God, to bless us among your creations.…

"The Pastor and His Prayer Life" By Pastor Scott Welch (http://oursovereignjoy.blogspot.com)

Great Blog article I came across...

The Pastor and His Prayer Life

In First Timothy 2, Paul exhorts Timothy (and therefore all pastors) to be a man of prayer. When I went off to Bible College in 1998 my father-in-law gave me the very same exhortation. He said, "Scott, make sure you study hard, but more than anything be a man of prayer." I found that studying hard was easier to do than to commit my life to prayer (and it is still that way). Satan has no problem with us studying in the flesh, even when we are studying God's Word. Prayer is hard work; in fact it is war. Studying can lead one to think highly of oneself; prayer is humbling. This is why studying God's word should always be coupled with prayer. Paul, being a man of prayer, understood this and gave these inspired words to young Timothy and to all men who are called to the pastorate. The wise apostle gives Timothy at least four truths concerning the pastor and his prayer life.

1. Pastors are to pray for everyone…

How to Get the Most from Reading your Bible
by Thomas Watson

1. Remove hindrances. (a) remove the love of every sin (b) remove the distracting concerns of this world, especially covetousness [Matt. 13:22] (c) Don't make jokes with and out of Scripture.

2. Prepare your heart. [1 Sam. 7:3] Do this by: (a) collecting your thoughts (b) purging unclean affections and desires (c) not coming to it rashly or carelessly.

3. Read it with reverence, considering that each line is God speaking directly to you (2 Tim. 3:16-17; Psalm 19:7-11).

4. Read the books of the Bible in order.

5. Get a true understanding of Scripture. [Ps. 119:73] This is best achieved by comparing relevant parts of Scripture with each other.

6. Read with seriousness. [Deut. 32:47] The Christian life is to be taken seriously since it requires striving [Luke 13:24] and not falling short [Heb. 4:1].

7. Persevere in remembering what you read. [Ps. 119:52] Don't let it be stolen from you [Matt. 13:4,19]. If it doesn't stay in…
