Posts Tagged ‘War on Terror’

Well to make up for missing last week, I’m posting a second Twenty Items.

1.  Minnesota has a publicly-funded Islamic school.  Katherine Kersten of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune reports:

TIZA has many characteristics that suggest a religious school. It shares the headquarters building of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, whose mission is “establishing Islam in Minnesota.” The building also houses a mosque. TIZA’s executive director, Asad Zaman, is a Muslim imam, or religious leader, and its sponsor is an organization called Islamic Relief.

Students pray daily, the cafeteria serves halal food – permissible under Islamic law — and “Islamic Studies” is offered at the end of the school day.

Complete craziness.

HT: Matt Riesetter

2. The new sexual revolution going on at Harvard – abstinence.

HT: Family Research Council

3. Continuing with the education theme.  Madness once again seen in public schools with one Wisconsin elementary school encouraging students to participate in a cross-dressing day.

HT: Kevin McCullough

4.  Just so Senator Obama doesn’t feel like I only pick on him (like his campaign staff would read this blog).  David C. Innes ponders whether or not Senator Hillary Clinton is insane.

5.  Catholic-run University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN is ok with transgender lecturers and Al Franken coming to address their student body.  But if you are Black and pro-life you are evidently not welcome.

6.  John Hawkins on liberal insanity when it comes to terrorists.

7.  Rich Lowry says that President Bush should boycott the Olympic opening ceremonies in Beijing over China’s brutal crackdown in Tibet.  What do you think?  I think I’m in agreement.

8.  By the way, I still don’t like Mitt Romney.  There is an online petition sponsored by Government is Not God to let John McCain know that Romney is not wanted on the ticket.  I already signed it.  I will not vote for a McCain/Romney ticket. 

HT: Carl Cameron

9.  Inspiring video over at Hot Air about a Marine who lost his leg fighting in Iraq, returns to duty… in Iraq.

10.  Oprah is a theological mess.

HT: Brent Thomas

11.  On the left is one example of “Christian” consumerism run amok.  Can I throw up now?  I guess I would need one of those mints if I do.

HT: Steve Randall

12.  LifeChurch.tv is going to launch it’s “One Prayer” initiative.  Interesting concept.  What do you think?

13.  The Olympic Torch leaves a huge carbon footprint.  Where’s Al Gore when we need him?

HT: Janice Dean

14.  News flash! Husbands benefit more than wives when it comes to the amount of housework the couples has compared to what they had before they were married.  According to a recent University of Michigan study:

Having a husband creates an extra seven hours a week of housework for women, according to a University of Michigan study of a nationally representative sample of U.S. families.

For men, the picture is very different: A wife saves men from about an hour of housework a week.

Does this really surprise anybody?

HT: Joe Carter

15.  Google doesn’t allow anti-abortion advertisements.  Another reason why I Goodsearch (that and if you designate Serve Our Youth Network as your charity we get $.01 every time you do).

16.  Here’s a college trend I’d like to see discontinued.

In the Woodstock era, the advent of coed dorms caused a stir, with Life magazine proclaiming the development “an intimate revolution on campus.” Coed floors came along over the next two decades, giving college students immediate proximity to each other. The next step, coed suites and bathrooms, brought the sexes even closer together.

Now, some colleges are crossing the final threshold, allowing men and women to share rooms. At the urging of student activists, more than 30 campuses across the country have adopted what colleges call gender-neutral rooming assignments, almost half of them within the past two years.

HT: Catherine Claire

17.  John Mark Reynolds shares a list of 12 books that Christians should read to gain better insight on how to do “cultural apologetics.”

18.  R.C. Sproul interviews Ben Stein on his movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.  Listen to Part 1 and Part 2.

HT: A-Team Blog

19.  Muslims leaving Islam in droves.  Interesting.

20.  Pro-Life Doctors, are they a new oxymoron?

In November 2007, the Committee on Ethics of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) published Committee Opinion # 385 entitled, “The Limits of Conscientious Refusal in Reproductive Medicine.” The committee opinion sought to “maximize accommodation of an individual’s religious or moral beliefs while avoiding imposition of these beliefs on others or interfering with the safe, timely, and financially feasible access to reproductive health care that all women deserve.”

Unfortunately, the balance struck by the committee between the right of conscience of physicians and the reproductive health care of women so emphasizes patient autonomy that it turns physicians into medical automatons forced to act against their best ethical and medical judgment. As pointed out on March 14, 2008, by Health and Human Services secretary Mike Leavitt: “The ACOG ethics report would force physicians to violate their conscience by referring patients for abortions or taking other objectionable actions, or risk losing their board certification.” Put simply, committee Opinion 385 could be the end of the pro-life doctor.

Sorry for the lapse in posting.  With my new responsibility of being interim pastor at Grace Evangelical Free Church in Indianola, IA, my work with Serve Our Youth Network and just being a dad and husband I’ve been behind in reading my blog subscriptions and news feeds, so that is why I missed a week.

1.  Jeremy Taylor, a teacher at Sioux City North High School, is running against incumbent Democrat Represenative Wes Whitead to represent Sioux City in House District 1.  He recently gave a great speech at the Woodbury County Republican Convention.  Watch below.

Part I: 7 minutes, 32 seconds

Part II: 6 minutes, 1 second

I hope that he wins, and more people like him win to stop the craziness that is going on in the Iowa House before our state goes completely bankrupt both morally and fiscally.

HT: Matt Riesetter

2.  The Barna Research Group has a new study out on Marriage and Divorce that finds marriage is norm among adults with only 22% having never been married.  They also found, however, that divorce is widespread and has lost most of its stigma.

3.  Wayne Larson on Worldview, Antithesis and Where We Get It All Wrong.  He brings up some interesting points.

4.  Great April Fool’s prank from Neil Cavuto.  HT: Matt Proctor

5.  Condy Rice – McCain’s VP pick?  That would be interesting.  I think it would be a strong pick for him, but would rather see somebody with more domestic experience.

6.  The picture below made me laugh out loud.  Anybody else feel the same?

 

HT: Jeff @ Smart Pastor 

7.  Also a good link I found from Jeff @ Smart Pastor.  Ten Worst Ever Life Verses.  Dang, I’m going to have to change mine.  Guys, perhaps reciting #7 to your wife wouldn’t be such a bad thing.  I mean it is scripture after all!

10. Hezekiah 13:7
“Ye that dwelleth in his name, observe the news of the Lord.”

9. Hosea 4:14
“I will not punish your daughters when they turn to prostitution, nor your daughters-in-law when they commit adultery, because the men themselves consort with harlots and sacrifice with shrine prostitutes—a people without understanding will come to ruin!”

8. Judges 4:21
“But Jael, Heber’s wife, picked up a tent peg and a hammer and went quietly to him while he lay fast asleep, exhausted. She drove the peg through his temple into the ground, and he died.”

7. Song of Songs 7:7-8a
“Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit. I said, ‘I will climb the palm tree; I will take hold of its fruit.'”

6. Psalm 137:8-9
“O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us—he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.”

5. 1 Samuel 4:18
“When he mentioned the ark of God, Eli fell over backwards from his seat by the side of the gate; and his neck was broken and he died, for he was an old man, and heavy.”

4. Matthew 1:9
“And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias”

3. Acts 5:9
“How could you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.”

2. Leviticus 18:19
“Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period.”

1. Ezekiel 23:20
“There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.”

8.  Having been a spectator (and sometimes victim) of congregationalism run-amuck as a form of church governance, I appreciated this post by Greg Gilbert over at the 9 Marks blog.

9.  The unchurched prefer cathedrals over contemporary church designs according to a LifeWay survey.  Interesting, exactly the opposite of what I would have thought.  HT: Sam Rainer

10.  Greg Stier on the James 2 faith-works dilemma.  My take is that works don’t save, but saving faith will have works as fruit or the evidence so to speak of legitimate faith.  That is a rather simplified summary of my interpretation of James 2.

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?  If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?  So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.  You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!  Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless?  Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar?  You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God.  You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.  And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way?  For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead, (James 2:14-26, ESV).

11. MTV survey on teens and social activism.  Pretty interesting.  HT: Kurt Johnston

12.  Adopt a Terrorist for Jesus

That’s what the new Web-based ministry Adopt a Terrorist for Prayer (ATFP) is urging Christians to do. Though ATFP agrees the government must fight terrorism militarily, it also believes the real war will be won in the spiritual realm. “Visitors can find a terrorist to pray for, as well as see how many others are praying for them,” said ATFP founder Thomas Bruce. “ It’s all about connecting these prayer warriors to each other to see how others are praying, to encourage each other, to spread the word, and fight this War on Terrorism in a powerful and spiritual way.” (From the Ministry Report Newsletter).

HT: Monday Morning Insight

13.  Also the first ever Amish emerging church – Solomon’s Barn.  I kid you not.

14.  Randy Alcorn does a monthly book giveaway, this month it is his book, Heaven.

15.  Christopher Wesley has a series of blog posts over at the Purpose Driven Youth Ministry Community Blog entitled “Good to Great Youth Ministry” based on learnings from Jim Collins book, Good to Great.  Here is a link to the first post.

16.  Andrew Jackson on how Christians can engage in politics without losing their soul.  He offers 10 biblical guidelines for how to do this.

17.  Senator Barack Obama’s outreach efforts to evangelicals has been sabotaged by his former pastor (and I would also say a number of his policy positions).  But it would seem his belief in liberation theology is hurting him.

Barack Obama’s church, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, is dedicated to Black Liberation Theology and income redistribution. This liberal theology goes hand-in-hand with the liberal politics which Obama espouses. Obama’s faith is heavily based in the social gospel, meaning an emphasis is placed on the humanitarian example of Jesus. Humanity’s need for a savior to pay the debt due because of sin, which is satisfied by Christ’s death and resurrection, is relegated to the sidelines.

HT: Politics and Christianity

18.  Foxfier on the death of Charleton Heston.  Not only do two of his movies rank as some of my all time favorites (Ben Hur and the Ten Commandments), but also his work in conservative circles.  Foxfier included a quote from “Winning the Culture War” in her blog that I’ll share here as well.

Who will defend the core value of academia, if you supposed soldiers of free thought and expression lay down your arms and plead, “Don’t shoot me.”

If you talk about race, it does not make you a racist.

If you see distinctions between the genders, it does not make you sexist.

If you think critically about a denomination, it does not make you anti-religion.

If you accept but don’t celebrate homosexuality, it does not make you a homophobe.

Don’t let America’s universities continue to serve as incubators for this rampant epidemic of new McCarthyism.

But what can you do? How can anyone prevail against such pervasive social subjugation? The answer’s been here all along.

I learned it 36 years ago, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., standing with Dr. Martin Luther King and two hundred thousand people.

You simply … disobey.

Peaceably, yes. Respectfully, of course. Nonviolently, absolutely.

But when told how to think or what to say or how to behave, we don’t. We disobey social protocol that stifles and stigmatizes personal freedom.

I learned the awesome power of disobedience from Dr. King . . . who learned it from Gandhi, and Thoreau, and Jesus, and every other great man who led those in the right against those with the might.

Disobedience is in our DNA. We feel innate kinship with that disobedient spirit that tossed tea into Boston Harbor, that sent Thoreau to jail, that refused to sit in the back of the bus, that protested a war in Vietnam.

In that same spirit, I am asking you to disavow cultural correctness with massive disobedience of rogue authority, social directives and onerous laws that weaken personal freedom.

But be careful … it hurts. Disobedience demands that you put yourself at risk. Dr. King stood on lots of balconies.

19.  Awesome quote.  When I first watched Amazing Grace I didn’t catch this, but Jemila Kwon over at Quirky Grace highlighted a quote given by Barbara, who is the woman who encourages William Wilberforce not to give up on his dream of seeing slavery abolished in Great Britain.

When they stop being afraid, their compassion will return.

20.  Something that leaders don’t often like to do, but I think is vital in order to listen to a variety of viewpoints and have a plurality of feedback: encourage disagreement.  Listen to opposing viewpoints.  This isn’t saying that we should promote disunity.  We need to be charitable toward one another, but I have far too often see a “group think” mentality occur when everybody thinks alike.  Poor decisions are made when we lapse into that.  We should seek to gather not “yes people” around us, but also those who will also challenge our thinking and push us beyond our comfort zone.

1.  Sweet photo, not doctored – read the story.

HT: Stephanie 

2.  House Democrats obviously don’t give a rip about our National Security.

HT: Stix

3.  Conservative herald William F. Buckley, Jr. dies at the age of 82 on Wednesday in his study… probably skewering liberal thought, I’m sure.  See Chicago Tribune coverage with video of White House reaction.  In related news, Christian Rock pioneer, Larry Norman died at the age of 60 on Sunday

4.  A likely unwanted endorsement awarded to Senator Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Chicago-based Nation of Islam, endorsed him at their recent convention.

Speaking to thousands of members of the Nation of Islam at their annual convention Sunday in Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan praised presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama as the only hope for healing the nation’s racial divisions.

Farrakhan, 74, the longtime leader of the Nation of Islam, said the war in Iraq, the nation’s faltering economy and the increased number of natural disasters were signs of “a nation in peril.” He said those problems provide the broader context for Obama’s rise.

“We are witnessing the phenomenal rise of a man of color in a country that has persecuted us because of our color,” Farrakhan told the crowd of nearly 20,000 gathered at McCormick Place.

5.  Mark Driscoll ditches the “emerging” label for Jesus.  Last Sunday he preached on the emerging church:

Within a more complicated context is a diverse range of Christian churches.

There are the fundamentalist Christians. For this group, Driscoll says everything goes into a “closed hand.” Not only does doctrine remain strict, which Driscoll agrees with, but so does the methodology which remains inflexible, rigid, outdated and “no fun.”

Then there are the liberals. They say they’re open with the methodology and the worship style and how to love people, but they’re also open about doctrine.

“We’re not sure if the Bible’s God’s word, we’re not sure if Jesus is God, we’re not sure if anybody’s going to hell,” Driscoll said, referring to liberals.

Denouncing such liberalism, the Mars Hill pastor stressed, “We’re supposed to be old Bible-believing, Jesus-loving Christians. Christianity doesn’t change. Now, the way it’s expressed culturally and demonstrated does change.”

At Mars Hill, doctrine is timeless but at the same time, methodology is timely.

“We’re theologically conservative and culturally liberal,” he often says.

6.  Strange news – a sex change inmate (in for murder) claims that the prison is violating “her” (he’s in a men’s prison) constitutional rights. How, you may ask?  By denying hair-removal treatment and access to a specialist to discuss his testosterone levels.  Heck yeah!  Why should taxpayers have to foot the bill for this?  Gimme a break!

7.  This is a disturbing first, but it is the result of diminishing a culture of life in our nation.

On a winter night in 2006, a disabled and brain damaged man named Ruben Navarro was wheeled into an operating room at a hospital here. By most accounts, Mr. Navarro, 25, was near death, and doctors hoped that he might sustain other lives by donating his kidneys and liver.

But what happened to Mr. Navarro quickly went from the potentially life-saving to what law enforcement officials say was criminal. In what transplant experts believe is the first such case in the country, prosecutors have charged the surgeon, Dr. Hootan C. Roozrokh, with prescribing excessive and improper doses of drugs, apparently in an attempt to hasten Mr. Navarro’s death to retrieve his organs sooner.

8.  Temperature monitors report widescale global cooling.

Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming.

Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile — the list goes on and on.

No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA’s GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously.

Hmmm…. that’s interesting.  Somebody better check Al Gore’s temperature.

9. McCain vs. Obama – Fighin’ words on Wednesday.  Michelle Malkin & Kirsten Powers analyze and debate on Fox News.

HT: Hot Air

10.  Kevin McCullough says Christians do not have permission not to vote.  He follows up that article with a blog post.  I wholeheartedly agree.

11.  Evidently the Air Force thinks that banning access to blogs is a good idea.

The Air Force is tightening restrictions on which blogs its troops can read, cutting off access to just about any independent site with the word “blog” in its web address. It’s the latest move in a larger struggle within the military over the value — and hazards — of the sites. At least one senior Air Force official calls the squeeze so “utterly stupid, it makes me want to scream.”

Until recently, each major command of the Air Force had some control over what sites their troops could visit, the Air Force Times reports. Then the Air Force Network Operations Center, under the service’s new “Cyber Command,” took over.

HT: John Noonan 

12.  Louisiana GOP gives Republican voters the middle finger by giving most of their delegates to John McCain, even though Mike Huckabee won the Louisiana primary.  This is unbelievable.  I guess the state party wants to keep with the state’s reputation for corruption.

13.  Pistol Pete writes about piety and pettiness

Genuine piety can be a wonderful thing.  Piety can be true devotion to the holy and living God.  Piety can be self-less service to God’s people.  Piety can be feeding those who hunger for the Spirit and thirst for righteousness.

But what begins as piety can easily turn into pettiness when we begin to see things not as God sees them, but according to their outward form.

14.  David Hayward gives some tips on how churches and pastors can develop authenticity and transparency .  Great stuff.

15.  Awesome post on pride vs. brokenness

Sara takes the following points from a resource from Nancy Leigh DeMoss called Revive Our Hearts:

  • Proud people focus on the failures of others…broken people are overwhelmed with the sense of their OWN spiritual need.
  • Proud people have to prove that they are right…broken people are willing to yield the right to be right.
  • Proud people claim “rights” and have a demanding spirit…broken people yield their rights and have a meek spirit.
  • Proud people have a drive to be recognized and appreciated…broken people have a sense of their own unworthiness; thrilled that God would use them at all.
  • Proud people feel confident in how much they know…broken people are humbled by how very much they have to learn.

16.  Principled Discovery offers some great rebuttals to some objections to home educating your children.  While she is writing in the context of objecting to a bill before the Nebraska Legislature, the objections and rebuttals are universal.  A worthy read whether you home educate or are just ignorant.

17.  Interesting post on Limited Atonement, a very difficult subject when discussing Calvinism and one that I have struggled with.

18.  The NFL now says that it is ok for churches to show the Super Bowl on big screens…  Sweet!

HT: Joshua Griffin

19.  Todd Rhoades asks a very important question – would you rather have bad breath or body odor?  I’m not sure I guess I would say bad breath because at least people wouldn’t smell me when I walk into a room.  How about you?

20.  Hilarious article by Dave Barry – “A journey into my colon — and yours

5. Chicago Tribune: “The Use and Abuse of Ronald Reagan” by Victor Davis Hanson reminds readers of President Reagan’s record as GOP candidates try to out-Reagan one another.

6. French President Nicolas Sarkozy is being criticized for being “un-French” by talking about religion in society.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy is drawing criticism from opponents for his frequent and increasing talks on religion in society, which critics say is a very “un-French” thing to do.

Sarkozy broke a taboo last December when he emphasized France’s Christian roots at a speech in Rome basilica, referring to France as “the eldest daughter of the Church” and stating that “the roots of France are essentially Christian.”

Some say his speeches, including his latest in Saudi Arabia’s capital city, ignore a French law separating church and state.

“A speech citing God not only on every page, but on every line, creates a fundamental problem for the republic,” argued Socialist Jean Glavany at the National Assembly last Wednesday referring to Sarkozy’s speech earlier in the week on providing state subsidies for faith-based groups.

12. American Christians are self-indulgent according to Erwin McManus:

In a recent article in Christian Today, Erwin McManus contends that the reason why churches are declining in America is because they are self-centered. “My primary assessment would be because American Christians tend to be incredibly self-indulgent so they see the church as a place there for them to meet their needs and to express faith in a way that is meaningful for them…there is almost no genuine compassion or urgency about serving and reaching people who don’t know Christ.”

13.  There has been some controversy at  Young Life when eight of their Durham ministry leaders either resigned or were terminated over disagreement with a new statement of non-negotiables made by senior leadership of this 66-year old ministry.  Six imperatives fleshed out in this proclamation are:

  • We proclaim the person of Jesus Christ in every message.
  • We proclaim the reality of sin and its consequences—that apart from divine grace, we are estranged from God by our disobedience and incapable of a right relationship with God.
  • We proclaim the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as the ultimate proof of God’s love and the only solution to our problem of sin.
  • We proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • We proclaim the risen Christ’s offer of salvation by inviting our middle school, high school, and college friends to confess Jesus as Lord and Savior.
  • We proclaim God’s call to discipleship by encouraging all who respond to grow in their faith.

Tony Jones has three blog posts related to this… here, here and here.  What do you think? 

14.  Greg Steir writes on The Coming Apostasy, what he sees today with some in the Christian speaking circut:

  • A growing emphasis on quasi or full on universalism.
  • A tendency to de-emphasize, question or outright attack core theological truths.
  • An overemphasis on “the red letters” of the Bible.
  • An increasing skepticism toward certainty about anything.
  • An overwhelming focus on conversations rather than conclusions.
  • A redefining of the gospel without propositions.

15. A new tract delivery system (see left) – evangelism by stealth.  I don’t know, it might be effective.  People like to read while in the bathroom.  Could work… could work…  I don’t think I’ll be trying it anytime soon.
