Memories Pizza Sets Example!


I do not personally know the proprietors of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana, but I do know that was meant for bad, surrounding RFRA of Indiana, has now been turned into good. And what Memories Pizza is now doing serves as an awesome example to all of us. I think I can speak for all believers when I say that in a day when Christian persecution is on the rise it is refreshing to hear something good! According to a report from the FRC (Family Research Council), because of the generosity of people across America when Memories Pizza was under attack by the political left and the LGBTQ+ crowds and supporters, they were given cash donations totaling $842,000.00!!!1 May God bless all who gave!

But that's not the End of the Story
Because they were so blessed they are going to answer another prayer request by giving a portion of their donations to another Christian in the news who has been mercilessly persecuted, Barronelle Stutzman. FRC writes: "Faced with losing her home, her shop, and her retirement savings for turning down a same-sex “wedding” request, friends like the O’Connors want to pay America’s kindness forward." "… God has blessed us for standing up for what we believe, and not denying him," an emotional Crystal said. "I’d do the same thing again," Kevin explained. "It’s my belief. It’s our belief. It’s what we grew up on. I’m just sorry it comes to this because neither one of us dislike any of those people. I don’t hold any grudges."2 What an amazing story of God's amazing grace!

One thing I have learned in my 30 years of being Christian is this, when believers take a stand for the Lord, trusting and leaving the aftermath to Him, He always works things out to His glory. And a reason for that is He desires all men everywhere, to turn their face toward Him and be saved. Yes, the Creator of the world desires to have a relationship with the creation He brought into being. He sent His only Son Jesus, to provide the path to heaven (John 3:16).

What the American people, who donated to the www.gofundme.com site, did was start a ripple affect that will not only help Memories Pizza but also help a Christian grandmother keep her home. Brothers and sisters that is what Christian love is all about. I am blessed to have heard this story of love and answered prayer.

God bless

25 Reasons to Believe - In Jesus FREE EBOOK

A while back the Barna Group released a report titled, "Six Reasons Young Christians Leave Church."

Under reason two, "Teens’ and twenty-somethings’ experience of Christianity is shallow" they write: 

"A second reason that young people depart church as young adults is that something is lacking in their experience of church. One-third said “church is boring” (31%). One-quarter of these young adults said that “faith is not relevant to my career or interests” (24%) or that “the Bible is not taught clearly or often enough” (23%). Sadly, one-fifth of these young adults who attended a church as a teenager said that “God seems missing from my experience of church” (20%)." 

If one takes a look at the modern church-scape I can see why. The gap between those pastors and teachers that are fired up about Jesus and those that do not preach all of the gospel was never more ap…

Fornication - The Acceptable Sin?

In the Bible there are several sexual sins that are categorized under the term,"Sexual Immorality." Not the least of these is, "Fornication." However fornication has become an outdated, and in many places, the acceptable sin in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries. As a matter of fact, many do not even know what the term "fornication" means. Since the advent of the modern Bible translation, many have never heard of it. This article focuses on what the Scripture says about this out-of-control acceptable sin.

Fornication is mentioned thirty-six times in the Bible (MT), thirty-two times in the New Testament. In almost all modern translations the word has been substituted with, "sexual immorality" and has come to mean any number of sexual sins. However, sin (missing the mark) is still sin and sin still separates a person from God. So why has this sin become so acceptable even in modern churches????

Cardboard Signs and Saying Yes to God

Perhaps you have seen the story of "Daniel's Gloves". It has been floating around the internet since 2001 according to snopes.com. They also tell us the original author is Richard Ryan the assistant Pastor of a Church in Indiana.  I refer to this story—which you will find posted below mine—because of the effect that helping one in need can actually have on a believer’s life.
One of the things I have done in the past is monitor just how many people there are who simply pass on by those who are holding a sign stating “Will work for food” or “Need Help for me and my children.” If you ask the hurting they will tell you there are literally hundreds and hundreds who just will not help. Truly it is a sad testimony that “one or a few bad apple(s) can spoil a whole bushel.” It is definitely something I also have observed. For some reason we either fear them, fear confrontation or fear being deceived. Whatever the reason, I often wonder how God feels about it.

The Bride of Christ Has Made Herself Ready!!

The Bible teaches of an upcoming Wedding Day that the Church should be on cloud nine over!! Rev. 19:7-9 states:


Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready." And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!' " And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."

The passage above speaks of two distinct events, the Marriage of the Lamb and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Both of these events are reminiscent of the ancient Jewish wedding ceremony where the Bride would become betrothed to her Groom and he would go away to build her a home. In the meantime she would wait anxiously for his return with shouts from his wedding party of "The Bridegroom Comes!" When the shouts were heard she wou…

"The Ten" and the Eleventh Horn of Daniel

What are we to make of Daniel’s Eleventh Horn (Dan. 7:8); could it be that the former, yet revived, WEU or Western European Union will make up the 10 nations the coming Antichrist King will rule over? Read on.
Most people have never heard of the WEU; however they have existed since 1954. Their purpose was to enforce the amended version of the Treaty of Brussels of 1948. From Wikipedia we read:
Since the end of the Cold War, WEU tasks and institutions have been transferred to the Common Security and Defence Policy which is being framed for the geographically larger and more comprehensive European Union. This process was completed in 2009, when a solidarity clause between the member states of the European Union which was similar (but not identical) to the WEU's mutual defense clause, entered into force with the Treaty of Lisbon. The states party to the Modified Treaty of Brussels consequently decided to terminate that treaty on 31 March 2010, with all the remaining WEU's activit…
