All Roads Do Not Lead To God But There Is Hope

June 30, 2017

Transfiguration-of-Jesus-by-Carl-Bloch

The 19th century painting Transfiguration of Jesus by Carl Bloch

Some people state all roads lead to God. However, that is incorrect. The Bible plainly states of Jesus, who is defined as God “Put no other gods before Me.” The Bible makes clear the only Gods that exist are the Holy Trinity of God the Father,  Son and Holy Spirit.

The Bible makes reference to “gods” that are not real, but forbidden idols people created and mislabled “gods.” It is one of the reasons God forbade His people to intermarry with others of non-Bible religions. God knew that a person in love is sometimes susceptible and swayed by the beliefs or lack thereof of their partner. Some men have turned atheist under the toxic nagging of their faithless girlfriends or wives, who belittled their beliefs, regarding their faith in God. It is a massive sin to destroy someone’s faith in God.

Some men have fallen under the influence of women or friends of other religions who, utilizing peer pressure, sway them away from the Faith and into worshiping “idols” some falsely proclaim are “god.” The Bible forbids this, as a massive sin. It is very wrong to turn away from the true God of the Bible. Let no one convince you to do so.

God (Jesus) makes it clear, His blessing is over His people who believe in Him and those who depart from the faith lose the blessings and favor of God. I implore you to return to the true Gods of the Bible – God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. Your blessings in this life and your soul in the next life depend on it. Don’t wait until it is too late, as no one is promised tomorrow. However, through faith in God and changing your ways you are guaranteed heaven.

12-Year-Old Girl Testifies Before School Board About Rogue Teacher Who Tried To Force Her To Deny God Exists (Video)

October 31, 2015

12-year-old 7th grade West Memorial Junior High school student, Jordan Wooley, had her rights violated by a her teacher, who is an atheist that ordered her to deny God exists or receive a failing grade in school. This was unlawful conduct on the part of her teacher, as each person has the constitutional right to believe in what they choose.  There is also the “separation of church and state” in America, meaning keep your nose out of other people’s religion and let people choose what they want.

Jordan Woolery

 Woolery was asked to chose what is “fact, assertion or opinion” regarding the sentence, “There is a God.” Woolery marked it as “fact” which is her belief (and mine) and was given a failing grade by her teacher, who had willfully violated the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

This was a cruel thing to do to a child (or anyone for that matter) as the Bible instructs adherents not to deny God’s existence or the faith. The teacher in question should be fired for trying to force atheism on a student and causing a child distress.  It was arrogant, out of line, highly disrespectful and deserves to be addressed in a court of law. Said misconduct deserves to be legally struck down in court to avoid repeat occurrences. If you want to deny God’s existence, that’s your business. However, trying to force a child to do the same or you will abuse your post as teacher to punish them is unethical, unbecoming and going too far.  Children are in school to learn. Do not bring unpleasantness, discrimination and bigotry into the classroom.

Nigeria Needs Help Against Boko Haram

 January 31, 2015

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau

This month it was reported the Al Qaeda linked terrorist group Boko Haram killed 2,000 people in the town of Baga in northeastern Nigeria. Baga residents’ were killed and the town set on fire.

Nigeria is approximately half Christian and half Muslim. Compendius has written about Boko Haram for years and the danger they pose to Christians in Nigeria, who do not submit to their will. For the past few years, Boko Haram has killed thousands of Christians. This month’s attack on Baga has surpassed last year’s entire death count.

Nigeria needs international help to combat the threat from Boko Haram. Innocent people cannot continue to be slaughtered for their beliefs by a merciless terror group. Something must be done to help them.

The African Union has volunteered 7,500 troops to help Nigeria in the fight against Boko Haram. Technology can also make a big difference in military maneuvers against Boko Haram. Humanitarian aid will be needed as well to help the injured and displaced.

Terrorism is on the rise around the world, evidence by the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, ISIS kidnappings and murders, as well as numerous suicide bombings in the Middle East.

Pregnant Sudanese Woman Meriam Ibrahim Sentenced To Death By Stoning And Hanging For Converting From Islam To Christianity Gets Last Minute Reprieve

Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese pregnant woman who was sentenced to death by stoning and hanging for converting to Christianity from Islam, continues to be harass by the local government. After global public outcry demanding she not be put to death and be freed, judges in the Sudanese court stated she may give birth to her child first, then face death by stoning and hanging.

As international outcry grew, especially on social networking, where many condemned the actions of the Sudanese court (I called for sanctions against them on Twitter) they relented and freed Ibrahim, only to arrest her once again on false charges they’ve trumped up. Ibrahim was freed again on bail and took refuge in the U.S. embassy in Sudan. Ibrahim’s husband, Daniel, is an American citizen and she should be allowed to be with him in America. If Sudan does not let her go, the government should face serious financial sanctions.

I am a Christian, have been my whole life and no matter what, will continue in the faith (Christianity). However, I understand others have the right to religious freedom and can practice whatever religion they choose. This should be a right in every nation and one that is not infringed by others, with people being threatened with death over their religion.

The Power Of Prayer

May 31, 2014

Prayer-5-31-14

Prayer is powerful. By God’s grace miracles have happened to many who have told stories of the great things God did in answering their prayers. I can attest to this. I’ve prayed for sick people, some who were on death’s door, even administered last rites and God graciously answered and they did not die.

I believe prayer is important. God is never too busy to hear the cares and concerns of your heart. Praying for guidance is also important.  There are so many important decisions to make in life and praying for guidance regarding things such as who to date, marry, what job to take and what city to live in, among other things, is important.

God can open the right doors for you and close the wrong ones, if you pray for guidance. If you have no peace in your heart and soul about a decision, it is probably for a reason. Pray for God to guide you into making the right choice lest you make a choice that  isn’t what’s best for you.

The Perils Of Dating Or Marrying Outside The Faith

January 31, 2014

Be Careful Of Relationships And Love Interests That Lure You Away From The Faith And God’s Blessings

Couple_Dancing_2009

Falling in love can be a powerful thing. Sometimes you think it’s love, when it’s lust and infatuation wreaking havoc on your hormones and emotions. Some are so taken with how their love interest looks, they overlook blaring problems in their relationship.

Most people want to date and or marry someone they deem gorgeous, as physical attraction is apart of love. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, being pretty on the outside, but ugly at heart is not good or desirable.

Some relationships are not of God. People sometimes try to force relationships that God never intended. All the signs are there that you two are not compatible and there are significant differences, but focusing on looks, you overlook serious flaws.

God is sending you warning signs that there is trouble ahead, but you’re not paying attention, trying to make something fit that was not meant to be. Stop trying to make a dating relationship work with a person not of the faith that God never intended you to be with.

The Lord would not put you with an unbeliever or someone trying to lead you into another religion. God would not give you someone doing that. As a dating principle, the word of God instructs, “Be not mismated with unbelievers.” This means not dating and or marrying people who are not of the Christian faith, as it is a Bible principle.

There are many examples of believers who have fallen in love and gone off with people who are not Christians and it led to heartbreak, trouble, contention, strife, regret and them straying from their principles and beliefs, to their own detriment.

God put his blessings over your life, do not jeopardize that over a good looking face, with a faithless heart. That’s not God’s plan for your life. God would never do that, as it goes against His word (the Bible). You’ve been lead astray by physical attraction. That’s not real love.

What seemed passionate and exciting at first, becomes a nightmare when the non-Christian you are dating then marry, starts disrespecting and belittling your beliefs and discouraging your hopes and dreams.

Significant problems will arise when they start asking you to compromise what you believe (to suit them). And don’t think you will change them, because you won’t. It will not end well.

Some of you are dating people not of the faith, whom you will marry and they will end up leading you away from the faith and straight into disaster.

God has loved you since you were born. Do not abandon the faith over a pretty face or handsome man, as looks fade, but what’s in the heart never does.

In 10-years (or less) their looks will begin to change (as does everybody’s) and you will be in a marriage that is supposed to be for life, with someone you are not compatible with and the very thing you married them for, their looks, have begun to fade.

Make sure you marry a Christian and one you are truly in love with. To do otherwise will wreak havoc on your marriage and life. When you love and are compatible with someone,  bonded by the faith, even as time goes by, you will still love them. That love will grow. These are the marriages that last.

What happens when you marry a person not of the faith and they try to take over your life and change you into something you are not, wanting you to become something you are not comfortable with. Do you know how aggravating, distressing and upsetting that has been for Christians who have experienced this.

What happens when your faithless significant other tries to raise your children as atheists, to their detriment. What happens when your significant other of another religion tries to raise your children in that religion, rather than Christianity, to their detriment.

The word of God indicates all roads do not lead to God. Are you willing to risk your spiritual well being as well as that of your future children, by marrying someone not of the faith, who will unquestionably try to change your beliefs, offending God in the process.

How will you feel when the person raises your children as unbelievers, instilling pessimism and lack of belief in your offspring. What about your future children’s souls. You should want better for your future children. A life of hope and faith, rich in love, is priceless. It nourishes the soul.

It is and will be the source of arguments and contention, causing you unnecessary pain and frustration in life, all over a physical attraction to someone who is at odds with your faith and the God that made you.

Anyone who would lead you away from the faith doesn’t care about your beliefs or soul nor do they respect you as a person. God would never put you with that person. You are in lust and it is clouding your judgement.

What happens on the other side after you leave this life. What will you tell God regarding having left the faith over an ill-fated relationship He never intended. If you have left the faith, I encourage you to return, as once again, the Bible indicates all roads do not lead to God (only Jesus).

If you are in a dating relationship with a non-Christian, I recommend you end the relationship. It’s going to lead you down a road of regret, as many have found out the hard way.

Pray and ask God to send you the one He intended for you and to confirm it to you in your heart and mind. God does have someone for you. He knows who you are most compatible with, who will compliment you and bring out the best in you. God knows who you will be happiest with – the person who is your ideal mate.

However, God is not going to force His plan for your life on you, as He has given you free will. Choose wisely, as it is important to your life and soul and future of your family.

Terrorists Open Fire At A Coptic Christian Wedding In Egypt Killing Adults And A Child

October 31, 2013

Coptic Christian church in Cairo that held a wedding ambushed by violent gunmen

Once again Christianity is under attack in select politically distressed regions of the world. Terrorists opened fire during a Coptic Christian wedding, killing 2 children and 11 adults. The unprovoked ambush and gunfire is inexcusable. What should have been one of the happiest days of a couple’s lives was marred by violence and hatred. Islam is supposed to be a “religion of peace.” Instead fundamentalist Islamists are creating Christian martyrs by murdering innocent people going about their lives, who’ve done them no harm.

Terrorists Murder 50 College Students In Nigeria

September 30, 2013

Boko Haram has struck again in Nigeria. New reports indicate 50 innocent college student were murdered in their dormitory by Boko Haram, as the terrorist sect opposes “Western education.” The Nigerian government has beefed up security at Nigerian schools in the wake of the incident.

Nigeria is approximately half Christian and half Muslim, with Boko Haram trying through violence and murder, to impose Sharia law upon the entire nation of 170,000,0000 people. Nigeria is sitting on massive oil reserves, making them Africa’s largest producer – another aspect of the equation Boko Haram seeks to control.

The month, fellow African nation, Kenya, faced a horrible, unconscionable terrorist attack at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, where Somali terrorist group al Shabaab heinously executed shoppers who could not recite a verse of the Koran, the book of the Muslim religion. Children were found dead in mall freezers with knives stuck in their bodies. Men and women were tortured, eyes gouged out and limbs removed in the despicable attack.

Pakistan Christians Issue Call for Protection

Published: September 23, 2013 – LONDON — With its Muslim-style minarets topped by a large black cross, the All Saints Church in Peshawar has for more than a century offered a daring architectural expression of Muslim-Christian harmony and cohabitation. This is how the Taliban destroyed it: two suicide bombers rushed the church doors as worshipers streamed out on Sunday. One attacker exploded his vest inside, the other just outside…

Christian Woman In Pakistan Beaten, Arrested And Sentenced To Death For Drinking From Same Well As Muslim Women

August 31, 2013

Asia Bibi

Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five, was beaten, arrested and sentenced to death for drinking from the same cup as Muslim women in Pakistan. According to published reports, Muslims consider Christians dirty and unclean “pigs” and “swine” and for Bibi to have drunk water from a well Muslim women used, is considered blasphemy punishable by death.

Protests on behalf of Asia Bibi

The only thing dirty about this incident is the way Bibi has been treated, as though she is subhuman and not deserving of rights. We are all human beings and deserved to be treated properly as such. This type of segregation and scorn has no place in society anywhere in this world.
