“The power you give to the government can and will be abused to the detriment of all its’ citizens.”

-Ken Mikeman
Former Candidate for Supervisor

The fight for freedom of religion in this country has been taken to the streets and to the courthouse lawn.

The sign says, “There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world.”

‘Solstice is the Reason for the Season.
Religion is the business of churches, not the government. This is not a church.’

So, what are your thoughts on this issue?

Preach the Gospel

December 23, 2009

I’m calling out two individuals who aren’t preaching the gospel to themselves nor to their listeners: R. Teeter and T. Jones.

T. Jones told his “congregation that it is sometimes acceptable for desperate people to shoplift.” Here’s the catcher, “as long as they do it at large national chain stores, rather than small, family businesses.”

See a problem with anything there?

R. Teeter- Why would you preach such an awful sermon first and secondly on U2’s song ‘One’ and consider it in your “best of” category. Now U2 is the ‘best’ band in the world, but it definitely wasn’t a ‘best’ sermon.

How would you encourage or discourage someone who isn’t living out the gospel?

Thought for Sunday

December 19, 2009

Far too often we approach Sunday as the day we rest from the week gone by rather than the day of first fruits, of beginning with the Lord and shaping our hearts and souls for the week ahead. When that happens, God gets the leftovers and the world gets the best part of us.

Want to Worship Tiger?

December 6, 2009

Well, sorry to burst your bubble, the doors are now closing.

I thought I saw it all, but now I’m not shocked cause this is what the unbelieving world chases after.

Read for yourself (taken from wtop.com):

The “First Church of Tiger Woods” has decided to close its doors after Woods’ “personal sins” forced the leader of the church, Pastor John Ziegler, to condemn the professional golfer.

On the church’s website – tigerwoodsisgod.com – Ziegler slams the man the church once called the “true messiah.”

“The events of the past few days have revealed Tiger to be a serial adulterer, a blatant liar, and a selfish coward,” Ziegler writes on a recent web site post.

“Tiger is clearly no longer deserving of being seen as a role model or a hero and he has needlessly squandered his unique potential to be a positive force in our country and the world.”

The website, now re-named “The Damnation of Tiger Woods,” lists the evidence of Tiger’s divinity, has various prayers and hymns dedicated to the golfer, and also lists “The 10 Tiger Commandments.”

Zeigler says the Web site will cease to exist once the lease on the domain name runs out in a few months.

Summary of the eRumor:
A forwarded email with a quote dating back to 55 B.C. from Cicero of Ancient Rome about balancing the budget, reducing public debt, and curtailing foreign assistance.

The Truth:
This alleged quote from Marcus Tullius Cicero that began circulating on the Internet in October, 2008, is based on a true statement from the great Roman orator, but someone added a lot to it to make it match some of what the United States was facing economically.

The actual quote is: “The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall.”

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
“The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” — Cicero , 55 B.C.
