Christ Is Risen!
The resurrection of Jesus means that He can be trusted absolutely.
The resurrection of Jesus means our sins have indeed been forgiven.
The resurrection of Jesus means that Satan has been defeated.
The resurrection of Jesus means that new life is possible.
The resurrection of Jesus means that the last enemy–death itself–is defeated.
No wonder Simon Peter could write:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” 1 Peter 1 :3
Secularism has swept through the land, removing the moral compass from our culture and replacing it with narcissism. People are directionless, guilt-ridden, hopeless. Christians must stand up and give answers from a biblical worldview.
THIS NATION, AT ITS HIGHEST LEVELS, HAS TAKEN A POSITION AGAINST GOD
Such blasphemous rebellion is energized by the corruption of the collection of sinful hearts which make up this nation. Behind this collection of sinful, corrupt, human hearts, stands the realm of Satan.
The Bible says Satan holds the world in his hands; the whole world lies in the lap of the evil one. God, Christ, Holy Spirit, the Bible, Church, Truth, are his enemies. Satan rules the world of sinners, and has power in the highest places. He rules the kingdom of darkness, seeking to destroy all that is light, all that is truth, all that is pure, all that is holy, all that is virtuous, all that is good. ― John MacArthur
“In this age, telling the truth is a tough business, and not for the fainthearted.”
"Humanity is involved in a massive universal conspiracy to supress the truth of God in unrighteousness."
"An institution has to decide, and it's not just an option it's a responsibility, how much diversity can be tolerated."

There is no God! And I hate Him!
How could science have missed it all these years focusing on the building materials and not the blue prints? Focusing on the paper the instructions are printed on and not the instructions themselves? Information has no weight or mass. Therefore, their "Fact" that it's a product of matter and energy is falsified.
Information: A product of intelligence. No mindless undirected material process can hope to explain it. It does explain how "Junk DNA" became one of the greatest blunders in all of science; Pure Bias. Such self-destructive lies collapse under their own weight when examined honestly.
E=MC2 means energy is equal to the mass of a body multiplied by the speed of light squared. Light has both energy and mass. Light is a source of gravitational fields. Information has no weight, mass, or energy.
Astronomers and Physicists Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe in their Evolution From Space calculated the chance of getting all enzymes needed for a cell at 1 in 1040,000 “an outrageously small probability that could not be faced even if the whole universe consisted of organic soup” (p. 24).
Life is based on information, not simply interaction of matter and energy in some natural prebiotic process of spontaneous generation. If so, the venerable principle of biogenesis would have been falsified.
If, indeed, the origin of life was a natural process under prebiotic conditions then why in billion-dollar research facilities with carefully, meticulously controlled environmental procedures and processes and the best scientific minds available, can't we crack the problem? Could it be that the National Academy of Sciences really has expelled intelligence? The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. Psalm 14:1
Information requires a language, with secure storage, retrieval, transmission, with error detection and correction systems.
Information is a product of intelligence, which only comes from intelligent beings. The more complex the information, the more intelligent and capable the being. Life is exceedingly complex. Could it be, that life didn't evolve? Life actually came from... well, that G** word?
How much clearer could God have possibly said it?
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Romans 1:18-23
In the beginning, God Created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
In the beginning was the Word (the rational principle of divine reason, mind, wisdom). John 1:1
Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the Earth is full of thy riches. Psalm 104:24
The Lord by wisdom founded the Earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by His knowledge the deeps broke open, and the clouds drop down dew. Proverbs 3:19-20
The New Atheism is dead. It was conceptually dead from birth. Now, it has stopped twitching.
The discoveries of the last 30 years are now insurmountable for the skeptical materialist. The only escape for an atheist or agnostic is to suppress or reject the painful obvious truth.
The Berkeley approved trapdoor, tolerance.
“We are told dogmatically that Evolution is an established fact; but we are never told who has established it, and by what means. We are told, often enough, that the doctrine is founded upon evidence, and that indeed this evidence is henceforward above all verification, as well as being immune from any subsequent contradiction by experience; but we are left entirely in the dark on the crucial question wherein, precisely, this evidence consists. And the salient fact is this: if by evolution we mean macroevolution (as we henceforth shall), then it can be said with the utmost rigor that the doctrine is totally bereft of scientific sanction. Now, to be sure, given the multitude of extravagant claims about evolution promulgated by evolutionists with an air of scientific infallibility, this may indeed sound strange. And yet, the fact remains that there exists to this day not a shred of bona fide scientific evidence in support of the thesis that macroevolutionary transformations have ever occurred.” ― Wolfgang Smith
“It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not religion, but the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
“It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors.”
"The only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican form of government is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible."
Eugene Peterson, The Message
there are difficult times ahead
Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes, they are animals. Stay clear of these people. Second Timothy 3:1-5, The Message
"The world lives in a time of crisis. Christians alone are in a position to rescue the perishing. We dare not settle down and try to live our lives as if things were normal." A.W. Tozer
