Christians, Totalitarianism, and the Public Arena

This post is in response to a statement made by the New York Times in its editorial of Jan. 13th, 2015, God, Gays and the Atlanta Fire Department.* In the editorial a statement is made that made me cringe. The statement is as follows:

"His [Recently fired, Atlanta Fire Chief Cochran] position as a high-level public servant makes his remarks especially problematic, and requires that he be held to a different standard."

Whose higher standard is the New York Times referring to? Where is the requirement officially stating, "all high level public servants are required to live under the federal or state standard [insert standard] which states, 'anyone in a public position is barred from expressing publicly or privately his/her private religious views in any form of media whatsoever'" or something legal to that effect. I am open to receiving a copy of this legalese. Please send it to: truthinspires@info.com

What I see happening is the seeds of totalitarianism. …

***********************************************
I am asking that you make a commitment to pray for those who are being severely persecuted around the world. Christians cannot turn a blind eye to the atrocities that are happening. My heart weeps continually for these modern day Christian martyrs who continue to stand strong for Christ. In Luke 4 Jesus made an interesting revelation. He said:

Luke 4:18-19 (NASB) 18 "THE SPIRIT OF THELORD IS UPON ME,BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR.HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES,AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND,TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,

19 TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THELORD."

Just as He fulfilled that prophecy to the letter so the time is soon coming that the last…

In 2015 It's Christmas 365

2014 is in the books but 2015 is here! I remember as a child thinking about the future. The 21st century was so far into the future that I could not even comprehend what it would be like; and now its 2015--wow! So what is the first thing that should be on every Christians prayer list? The older I get the more I realize that I need to be thankful for everyday and every blessing that comes with it. First and foremost my relationship to God. As Charles Stanley stated, "Our true identity is defined not by our past actions but by the Savior’s. Jesus purchased our lives with His blood and brought us into relationship with God the Father, who adopted us as beloved children." How cool is that? So first on my list is being so thankful for the gracious and merciful love of God.

I know, there are a lot of naysayers who scoff at Christians who tout the mercy of God as they think themselves to be beyond the need of such a gracious gift. But like the Apostle Paul who stated, "Not th…
