Hour 1:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Many times all we can do is quote the Bible, and we can’t explain why God’s ways are ways of life and are best for the nation. We are not just being politically conservative. We’re conservative of our moral values because God’s ways are best and bring life.

 

Hour 2:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: We who are stewards will have to give account to God one day for the funds we received and how we have used them.

  1. Shocking story Paul – This is difficult to get my head around this modern day anti semitism. This is a satanic unleashing of animalistic instinct. We must stand firm behind what God is doing.

  2. Yes, shocking story, and I wonder why? Why would this happen? Was it just some young drunks who didn’t much know what they were doing at the time, walking by whatever spirit was around to start trouble, or was there something deeper than that going around?

    Sometimes people just like to get out on the street whenever any ruckus happens just to join in, but maybe there is something more.

  3. Ray , your spot on if you think about it in the west a lot of small battles have happened orchestrated by denomic activity . Shootings in schools public building and over all lawlessness. I believe evil is increasing all over so change can come in .Did you see how angry Mr Obama was at BeBe I have never seen a US Presadent act in that manner He is a very bad man ! I do believe Obama’s behavior will become encreasingly worst toward Jews and Christians after all IF THE POLITICAL WINDS SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION I WILL STAND WITH THE MUSLIMS quote from Obama

  4. I hope “Christian” or “Biblical” isn’t ugly to Obama. Yet if what you say he said is true, maybe he is telling on himself.

  5. What do think he will do after leaving the White House?
    Mybe go on to biggerr things but what is bigger then the job he holds now ? Do you think he will be like George Bush just fade off ?

  6. Paul, I figured long ago that George Bush would buy a big house at devalued prices, but Obama… I just don’t know.

    I don’t know what IMG_22o8.JPG means. Should it put that in my search engine?

  7. I’m thinking maybe Obama will write a book on Obamunism and then try to get elected in some foreign country.

  8. Oh…Maybe Obama has aspirations of becoming the next prime minister of Israel or something…would that be a scare or what?

  9. What America needs is many conservatives running and explaining that they will pull out of the race at a strategic time if the polls show too little possibility of being elected, (to get on another conservative’s bandwagon, as a high card in the hole) or if there could be a split or something, or better yet, if at a strategic time, they all met together in a humble assembly for prayer and asked God who should run, Act chapter 1 style, and then campaign together for that one in unity.

  10. It’s my prayer that Obama stay out of all things political when he leaves office, that he never have any desire for any political position anywhere in the world.

  11. Paul,

    Would you please provide the source from which you said that President Obama stated, “IF THE POLITICAL WINDS SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION I WILL STAND WITH THE MUSLIMS quote from Obama”.

    Thanks

  12. Did I hear correctly, that Ted Cruz is now a proud recipient of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)?

    Hmmm….

  13. Brain R, BARACK OBAMA The Audacity of Hope you can buy on amazon.com $7.19 must not have on been America reading list but Europe read it.

  14. Paul,
    I actually have that book. As you know, all quotes should be read in context. What he said makes sense when read in that light – equal protection for all people no matter what race, or religion. It comes as follows:

    “Whenever I appear before immigrant audiences, I can count on some good-natured ribbing from my staff after my speech; according to them, my remarks always follow a three-part structure: “I am your friend,” “[Fill in the home country] has been a cradle of civilization,” and “You embody the American dream.” They’re right, my message is simple, for what I’ve come to understand is that my mere presence before these newly minted Americans serves notice that they matter, that they are voters critical to my success and full-fledged citizens deserving of respect. “Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

  15. Brian, from what you are quoting it seems the president was saying that he will stand with the American citizens if the political winds shift….etc.

  16. I appreciate that Brian pulled the quote into context. Taken alone it could mean something entirely different than what it means in context.

    This is in no way support, just appreciation for context.

  17. Brian , I don’t embrace or want the USA to Racially profile Peploe or group.That said Mr Obama is not drawing a clear conclusion in this chapter He leaves it to vauge. His Idea of what Islam is and is not can be shown as wrong ISIS is a true branch of Islam in fact following the Koran and the Hadef to the letter . Simply calling it a religion of peace is a lie !

  18. Paul,

    In a backwards way, Islam is a religion of peace.

    It just takes the murdering or enslaving of everyone that is not in agreement with the most radical element of Islam to finally reach its version of “peace.” Of course the “justice” system, of Islam has to be implemented also and so by the time that millions are missing a hand or are permanently scarred from whippings, they will learn to be peaceful too.

    The end result is that after there is only one or the radical branches of Islam left, then there will be the only version of peace that the Koran actually allows for.

    We already know from history that atheist, socialist communism has much the same means and ends. And ultimately, it is men and their ideas that end up being worshiped in both systems.

    Without the real Elohim, His means of salvation from sin, and the application of His law, there is no such thing as real justice or peace. Justice and peace will come in fulness when Messiah returns…and not before. We do well to know and participate in these things as much as is possible in the present, as this is the only way to facilitate any real justice and peace in our fallen world at present.

    Shalom

  19. Bo,

    Benjamin’s response accurately conveyed my position on this. Who I voted for, or if you voted at all, is a non issue to the quote posted. I was simply wanting to see if what was stated was accurate and true.

    Shalom

  20. Paul,

    The context, in my opinion, is quite clear. He explained that American citizens should not be profiled and mistreated because of the bad things that other people have done in the name of their religion or because of their ethnicity. This is why he specifically cited the treatment of Japanese immigrants as a clear example.

    The point is, you posted a quote that President Obama “DID NOT” say, which demonstrates that you did not get this directly from his book. I don’t disagree with your opinion of Islam, and stand with you, nor do I have any contention with your view of President Obama; however, if you are going to quote him, or anyone, it will behoove you to do so with accuracy and truth.

    Shalom

  21. Brian,

    I agree with Benjamin. I Just wanted to find out if there is more to your objection than meets the eye. Did you vote for Obama? If you did or didn’t, you should not be ashamed. I did not vote at all. I am interested in you answering.

    Shalom

  22. Bo,

    I’m not ashamed at all, as I just explained to you my reasoning. Hence, you are going down the wrong path as you are attemtping to read more into this then what has been written. It appears that truth is not your concern, therefore I’ll leave you to wonder.

    Shalom

  23. Brian,

    Contrary to your assertion, truth is my concern. I certainly consider your statement an insult. I would just simply like to know if you have a dog in the fight. Did you vote for Obama? It is easy to answer. I will assume that you did and that you are ashamed or at least afraid to admit it on this conservative site. But you could answer and prove your fearlessness so easily. Virtually anyone that did not vote for Obama would be happy to confess such on this site. It is those that voted for him that will tend to be coy and evasive.

    Shalom

  24. I think Dr Brown said on the line of fire he as a follower of JESUS he could not vote for man or woman who stands against the commandments of GOD in Christ . It means that you would be grieving the Spirit of GOD and or not a believer at all. How can we vote for someone who keeps the ways of the Moabites? Are we just doing it for self gain?

  25. Right now, there is some bill or law in Indiana about protecting religious rights by not requiring people to do certain things (pertaining to selling certain birth controls and matters like this for conscience sake) pertaining to their jobs, and the mayor of Seattle caught wind of it, and now he is preventing the travel money to the state of Indiana. (pertaining to local government employees or something.)

    But we see how those that are voted into office can affect things, even things way out of their network.

    The mayor of Seattle is openly homosexual.

  26. Correction to my above post. It’s about the hiring of homosexuals, rather than things pertaining to selling certain birth control.

    Search out Religious Freedom Bill, Indiana, for more information on this.

  27. Apparently this new law in Indiana called the Freedom Bill, would offer some legal protection concerning things such as a florist who is threatened with a law suit on account of their religious beliefs and conscience, because they would not perform the work.

    This kind of thing is needed today. The state Attorney General was working together with some people who went to sue a florist in Richland, WA,
    and they are presently in this kind of trouble for doing nothing wrong.

    Washington state needs this kind of law to protect religious freedom, it seems to me, though I don’t know much of the details of it.

  28. I don’t know if this new law in Indiana goes so far as to protect employers from legal suits if they refuse to hire a homosexual or not, though I think we should have such protection.

    I don’t believe an employer should be forced to hire somebody when there is a character matter that he is not comfortable with, pertaining to a job applicant or employee.

    If someone is openly homosexual, I think that’s a character matter, and I believe employees do represent the company they work for to some extent.

  29. The truth is that who we vote for shows how much we value the truth. The reasons that we compromise truth and vote for someone despite their stands on abortion and same sex marriage, etc. is very telling about what we really value more than YHWH’s word.

    Shalom

  30. To Brian R
    How do things look to you now? Is your Faith in O Bama still strong? How does he stand? Is it now With us the French or with Muslims today? On the news today at a soccer match in Turkey the crowd Yelling allah auch bar after the murders in France . How do you interpret his book now ?

  31. The crowd, How does one fix that? That is not right? Where in the world can you defend cheering in the name of a god that you can not appreciate the lives that where here last week? This illiterates best what the world is up against. If a christian terrorist mob had gunned down people and our stadiums would not note a minute of silence?? What is wrong with that picture? that sport? that god?????? I could not imagine people in the west acting like that- even secular people can acknowledge a second of silence. Hillary stood on stage for 15 seconds with her eyes closed. Impressive for this Jezebel.

  32. They want to take over the world . Let this burn in to our minds lest we forget. They have shown who Muslims really are !
