Secularism followed on the heels of communism after the Berlin Wall came down, and the two ideologies are essentially the “same thing” because they are “godless” and “anti-Christ,” said Reverend Franklin Graham, adding that the secularists have “taken control of our country” and “taken control of Washington.”

“We live in a secular society led by people that call themselves progressives,” said Rev. Graham, son of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, at the Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference on Jan. 26. “When communism, the Berlin Wall came down, everybody said, ‘we won,’ and [then] secularism came.”

“Secularism and communism are the same thing,” he said. They’re godless. They’re anti-Christ. So now we have the secularists who’ve taken control of our country. They’ve taken control of Washington. They’ve taken control our city governments, our local governments, our school boards all across the country, and we have just sat back. It’s happened and we haven’t even realized it’s happened.”

He continued, “Now, you say, Franklin, your father [Billy Graham] wouldn’t get on to these subjects. Wait a second. My father, when he was going to school, they had a Bible in school. When he was going to school, they had the Ten Commandments on the wall. When he was going to school, you could pray in school, and the teachers would lead in those prayers.”AMEN

“Our country has changed.,” said Franklin Graham. “ We’ve got to take a stand. We cannot back up, we cannot retreat.”

The reverend, who oversees the organization his father founded, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the international relief group Samaritan’s Purse, went on to say that Christian men and women must enter the political arena to turn America in the right direction.

“Let me tell you something, the church needs to get involved in politics,” he said.  “Now I’m not talking about Baptist or Republicans and Tea Party – I don’t even know who they are – but I have no confidence that any of these politicians or any party is going to turn this country around. The only hope for this country is for men and women of God to stand up and take a stand.”AMEN

“We need men and women of God who take these local elections serious, so we can take back these various offices and have men and women of God who believe in the Bible, who stand on the word of God,” said Rev. Graham.  “And let’s send to Washington men and women who believe in God and stand on the word of God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, who are not afraid.”

“America has changed and it’s not coming back unless the church takes a stand,” he said. There are storms that are coming, and we find ourselves in these storms and many times, we as a church, we run. And we run to the wrong place. You see, Jesus is in the boat [with us]. All we have to do is call Him.”AMEN

“Call on His name,” said Rev. Graham.  “But the secularist and the humanist, no.  You mention the name of Christ and they jump all over you. I get jumped on all the time. I don’t care. I really don’t. I gave my life to Christ.”AMEN

Rev. Franklin Graham, 62, is married, has five children and lives in Boone, N.C. He is the oldest son of Pastor Billy Graham, the most influential evangelical preachers of the last 60 years, whose Christian message has reached an estimated worldwide audience of more than 2 billion people.

HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA: The Exclusion of Equal Rights

Exclusive: Ben Kinchlow ponders ‘gay’ and lesbian inability to ‘reproduce their species’

Ben Kinchlow is a minister, broadcaster, author and businessman. His latest book is “Black Yellowdogs.” He was the long-time co-host of CBN’s “The 700 Club” television program and host of the international edition of the show, seen in more than 80 countries. He is the founder of Americans for Israel and the African American Political Awareness Coalition, and the author of several books.

In the words of one American president (whom many remember, one way or another), “Let me make this perfectly clear …” the homosexual community is not striving for equal rights, they are driving for special rights applicable only to them, to the exclusion of equal rights for others.

A prime example of that is what recently happened to the CEO of Mozilla Firefox (an Internet browser that I am removing from my computer today). Apparently, he committedthe horrifically “anti-gay” act of donating $1,000 to support Proposition 8 in 2008. Proposition 8 took the apparently viciously anti-homosexual position that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. Gasp! How dare they?! Of course, in other rulings, liberal judges have decided that only homosexuals – not Christians – are entitled to their beliefs and opinions (but we won’t mention the 33 other states with laws similar to Proposition 8 in place and the 52 percent of Californians who supported the constitutional amendment).

You will notice from reading, watching or listening to our totally unbiased mainstream media that only homosexuals are allowed to freely express their deeply held opinions. People who dare to have any reservations about making bedroom behavior a standard for morality are immediately assigned “right-wing nut-case” status. Christians are not allowed to hold to transcendent biblical principles that proffer such old-fashioned, outmoded concepts as marriage being between a man and woman, and bedroom behavior being a private matter. If you want to sleep with your cocker spaniel while dressed in flaming yellow fluorescent pajamas on bright green bed sheets, that is your choice, but don’t impose that on me.

Let us clarify something, and let us, like them, leave the Bible completely out of the discussion. Purely for the sake of this argument, let us accept evolution as real and the controlling factor in human development. Evolution teaches that something evolved from something and became something – us. Consequently, sex, or the breeding of species by male and female of a particular species, produces offspring. This is “natural” and cannot be circumvented except by “unnatural” means. In other words, according to science (and please pardon a biblical reference), everything reproduces “after its own kind.”

Take mules, for instance. Mules are not an evolutionary byproduct; they are “created” by injecting the sperm of a male jackass into a female horse (a mare) by natural or medical means. The result of this crossbreeding produces the mule, a sterile creature that cannot reproduce itself, even though male and female mules exist (something to do with chromosomes and stuff like that). Everything that occurs “naturally” in nature can, all things being equal, reproduce itself.

Now, consider human beings. There are those who today still object strenuously to interracial marriage. They are convinced that, while extramarital or purchased sex may be permitted in secret, marriage should be strictly confined to “like marrying like.” White should marry whites, blacks-blacks, yellows-yellows, etc. There are even Christian churches (so-called) who vehemently object to, and refuse to perform, such “ungodly” unions. (But, I forgot, we are supposed to leave God and the Bible out of the discussion.)

OK, as “Mom” (the mother of a dear friend of mine), a lovely – dare I say it – white woman, used to say, “Here’s what do.”

Pro-homosexual advocates would have us believe that homosexuality is a naturally occurring phenomenon and should be accepted as such. So, “here’s what do.” Since, according to its advocates, homosexuality is a normally occurring phenomenon, then nature should support it with naturally occurring actions. Granted, I am not a scientist, so I will defer to the reader’s judgment in this matter.

Here is the scientific experiment:

A) Mix, and maroon, any number of black, white, red, yellow, brown men and women on a deserted island in the Pacific and come back 30 years later.

B) Do exactly the same with an equal number of homosexual males, or lesbian females, and maroon them (separately) on deserted islands in the Atlantic, and come back 30 years later.

What would you find?

If homosexuality and lesbianism are naturally occurring phenomena, and everything reproduces “after its own kind,” then there should be a population increase in both Atlantic and Pacific islanders. If not, then one of the groupings violates “natural law,” evolution’s process of reproducing after its own kind. If homosexuality/lesbianism is “natural,” then like all other species, they should, within the arena of sexual activity, reproduce their species.

But then, as I earlier confessed, I am not a scientist, so I must be content with my own nonscientific judgment. Homosexuality is not “natural.”

White House Petition to Ban Creationism Gathering Steam


http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/06/21/White-House-Petition-To-Ban-Creationism-Gathering-Steam

A White House petition to ban the teaching of creationism and Intelligent Design in American classrooms has garnered 23,715 signatures in one week.

  “Both of these so-called ‘theories’ have no basis in scientific fact, and have absolutely zero evidence pointing towards these conjectures. These types of loopholes in our education are partially to blame for our dangerously low student performances in math and science,” reads the petition created by someone listed as A.J. of Vienna, Virginia. “Therefore, we petition the Obama Administration to ban the teachings of these conjectures that contradict Evolution.”

The petition must receive 100,000 signatures by July 15 to guaranteed a response by the Obama Administration.

 In an interview with the Christian Post, Ken Ham, the president of a creationist organization named Answers in Genesis, said the White House petition is just one more example of the growing intolerance against Christians.

 “This anti-creationist petition is yet another example of the intolerance of evolutionist activists” who do not “want to see any challenge to their deeply held secularist worldview,” said Ham.
