A comment received to my article, AMERICA BELIEVES CHRIST IS GOD, reads as follows on ConservativeVoice Forum

“Grant, I wonder if you are a football fan? Just because, if so, I hope you're demanding to the team ownership that the whole team should be put to death immediately. After all, a literal reading of the Bible does tell us that anyone who works on Sunday should be killed, right? And you've apparently linked belief in Christ with blindly following everything in the Bible.”

Here is the answer to that comment:

In the Old Testament, God commanded the death penalty in twenty-some cases. This was not because God was barbaric, but because God was civil. The Israeli twelve tribes had no law enforcement agencies. Further, they were surrounded by barbarisms of strange magnitudes exhibited by neighboring pagan nations.

Consequently, for God to establish an Israeli civil community, He set forth stringent punishments--some being the death penalty. He Himself became, in other words, the Law Enforcement Agency for the new nation of Israel. That chosen community thereby was to model morality / civility to the surrounding nations.

Extremely severe penalties then were commanded by God in order to bring in line an Israeli community which tended to be unruly like its neighbors. If God had been lax in penalties, human nature, being what it is, would have tested gladly the boundaries. But when penalties were severe, human nature thought twice before testing the boundaries, hence the death penalty prescribed by God in some instances.

However, once Israel lost its nationhood by "going a-whoring after other loves", Israel's civil structure disappeared. Israel as a nation lost its temple, its government--that is, its two primary components of culture--religion and politics. Pagan nations then ruled over the heretofore nation of God. In this loss was the disappearance of death penalties previously prescribed by God. The death penalty period as dictated by divine revelation, in other words, ended near the close of the Old Testament era.

That is why when Jesus appeared as flesh-and-bones divine revelation, He pronounced, "You used to say, 'An eye for an eye', but now I say to you: Love your enemies." Jesus pronounced a civility of love toward one's enemies. "Love your foes, pray for your foes." This was the New Testament for it was now a new way of dealing with others--all others.

Government was now established primarily within the believer rather than under Israeli kings. "The Kingdom of God is within you." Law was now primarily of the heart. "My law will be written on your hearts." That was the new politic. Further, the tabernacle was now primarily the human frame: "Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit." That was the new religion.

Therefore, for the New Testament Church Age, it is the law of love toward all--friends and foes. Jesus provided a simply stated ethic. He refused to garble it with amendments. But, one may ask: "What about these atrocious crimes and the death penalty?"

The biblical answer is still the same: love your friends and foes in Jesus. What kind of Christian love then can be shown to a multiple-murderer / rapist / arsonist / child molester? What kind of Christian love can be meted out to a Hitler?

It is a Christian tough love. Tough love keeps the exceptional criminal alive but consigns that one to supervised environs without parole. Hopefully, even that exceptional criminal then may come upon redemption through Christ, yet never be placed in tempting circumstances whereby he again may do others and Himself harm.

Keeping the individual alive also allows the possibility that, realizing human justice systems to be flawed, that person in truth may be found innocent though originally pronounced guilty. Indeed, the future may prove this to be fact if new evidence is forthcoming. History has case files on those in the aforementioned category.

Reason this moral / ethical situation from God's perspective: Adam and Eve slew God's love when they played loose with Eden's snake. However, God did not slay them. Instead, God banished them to their own solitary isles of remorse, hoping at least for their eternal redemption.

You once slew God's love by going your own stubborn way. In reality, you pronounced yourself Lord of your life. It is a hurtful truth to you now that you are a believer; nevertheless, living once in sin and for sin, you were once that callused toward your own loving Creator. However, did God obliterate you? No, instead God searched you out, loved you even while you were enemy, in hopes of redeeming what was left of your destiny.

He now invites each Christian to live out that same kind of persevering, at-times-tough love toward all others--especially those who are Enemy. God has already walked for us the path of love-for-foes. We, of all creatures, should know this for sure. Praise be to a loving, merciful God!

He then invites us to join Him on that love path. He has walked it for us. He asks us now to walk it for others.

Can I tie Muslim Barack Hussein Obama to the Pakistani Muslims attacking Christians in Sargodha?


Marxist Muslim Obama attacks Christians in Christian heritage America. He did so publicly when telling them to slide off the list. Atheists were given equal preference in his inauguration speech.

In addition, he prostituted the Christian faith by using Christian church membership to mask his Islamic allegiance.

Further, he used the Islamic lie to convince Christians he was one of them when sponsoring gospel concerts during his presidential campaign, speaking from Christian pulpits, quoting Christian Scripture and appearing on such Christian sanctuary platforms as Saddleback Church.

Obama’s daily agenda is to wipe out the nation’s Christian heritage for Islam World Rule.

Therefore, what goes on in Pakistan with Muslims attacking Christians with axes and clubs is in concert with Obama’s slice and dice in America.

“As many as 50 Muslim villagers armed with clubs and axes recently attacked a showing of the 'Jesus' film near Sargodha, Pakistan, injuring three part-time evangelists and four Christians in attendance.”

The Koran that these clubbers follow is the Koran that delights Obama. By the way, it is the same Koran that Prince Charles stated serves as his daily devotions.

“Two of the evangelists were said to be seriously injured. The Muslim hardliners also damaged a movie projector, burned reels of the film and absconded with the public address system and donations from Christian viewers in Chak village, about 10 kilometers northeast of Sargodha.”

What are government officials in DC doing to curtail Obama’s overthrow of America? Nothing but agreeing with him via the Dem controlled Congress. The same in Pakistan.

“Officers at the Saddr police station refused to register a case against the Muslim assailants, sources said.

“The evangelists said a Muslim cleric instigated the Muslim villagers, who were armed with clubs, spades and axes” per The Christian Messenger dated December 29, 2009.

Same song, second verse in Pakistan as in

Many evangelicals wondered why under heaven Pastor Rick Warren, Saddleback mega-Church, was so cordial to Barack Hussein Obama during the presidential campaign.

Countless conservatives were so taken aback that they couldn’t digest the facts when first told.

“Rick Warren is having Obama on his church platform,” I told a Christian friend in New Hampshire. She opposed me vehemently. I just had to be incorrect. Not Rick Warren. Didn’t I know who he is? Didn’t I know he’s evangelical?

I told her that Barack Hussein Obama was going to sit in Warren’s sanctuary and be given the chance to appear evangelical-friendly when I knew he was Marxist Muslim.

She was incensed at me.

Then later she found out the truth. Obama was there with Warren. It didn’t matter that Warren asked pointed questions of Obama. Obama didn’t care about the touch questions, even tougher questions. All Obama needed was one more religiously conservative clergyman and evangelical sanctuary to walk into.

That went along with Obama mounting other pulpit stairs throughout his campaign.

That went along with his quoting from the Bible, particularly referencing the Sermon on the Mount.

That went along with his staging gospel concerts throughout the South.

That went along with his testimony that he walked to the front of Trinity UCC to meet Jesus at the altar.

That went along with his smiling at one religious figure after another.

Now Warren is paying a severe price for his winging it with the foe. His church is bottoming out financially.

There are kind, loving, caring evangelicals bonding with those of like faith who will respond to this news by saying: “You deserve this fallout, Rick. You asked for it. You should have never bent over backwards to entertain a known theological liberal on your sanctuary platform.”

There were many who concluded Warren did all this for Warren’s sake, that being a forte of Warren. Warren, after all, is the popular author of “The Purpose Driven Life.” He’s known as frequenting liberal conclaves, supposedly under the motive of being charitable and perhaps even winning a few points for evangelicalism. Is it the California sun?

That reminds me of Ruth Graham, Billy Graham’s wife. When Billy was sauntering up to DC frequently to have chats with Presidents, Ruth saw some awesome clouds gathering from time to time.

At one point, Ruth counseled Billy to slow down on the connections with politics in Washington. She told him to stick more with evangelism and less with politicians. He himself told the press this; he stated she was a wise wife to give such advice.

For Warren, he sent out a Christmas letter making financial appeals. So it goes. May he have learned a lesson about this cozy up mode with the theological enemy, especially when it is one as dangerous as Marxist Muslim Barack Hussein Obama.

“According to Stop the Islamization of Europe (SIOE), in the Euro-Med plan ‘Europe is to be islamized.

“’Democracy, Christianity, European culture and Europeans are to be driven out of Europe.

“’Fifty million North Africans from Muslim countries are to be imported into the EU’” per JihadWatch’s “The EuroMed Partnership: opening the floodgates for jihad in Europe.”

The operation is to begin January 1, 2010.

Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (Europe/Mediterranean) is given little fanfare but organizers are zealous. Low-key is the mode; finalization is the goal.

“A ‘blue card’ system is to be created that will allow card holders to travel freely within the European Union and have full rights to work - as well as the full right to collect welfare benefits.”

SIOE warns that America would be wise to take heed for obvious reason.

They’ll love him as the messiah. They and their next generations will vote for him and his party.

Whatever, Barack Hussein Obama is for votes. He got them when mob hysteriacs kissed him into office. Then he declared, “I won.”

He intends on winning more, no matter the lies, deceit, criminals surrounding him, and every other underhanded tactic. It’s the Muslim way, per the Koran’s Allah.

Therefore, while promising immigrants they would get full citizenship when running for President, Obama is checking his calendar. He told them he would put that item top on his agenda. The first year is moving to a close.

Latinos are asking him: When? They are getting frustrated. He knows that. He cannot afford to lose their vote. Latinos count largely in the illegal category.

Whatever the ethnic, Obama will do everything in his power to get illegals legal.

That of course aligns with his immoral base of whatever he does. So on with signing up those who have broken the law to get into America, staying here with children in line, claiming legals would be mean to cast them out now that they have cemented themselves on to our

Those legals who conclude illegals are breaking the law and should be sent back to wherever are going to rise up against Obama.

They are also going to point to the porous borders that he promised to close shut. But will that inhibit Obama the opportunist? Never.

Just as Obama and shadow government said polls are written by children with crayons, so they will tell legals where to get off.

Mark it down as biblical truth: There is no pre-tribulation rapture.

However, untold thousands believe in the "secret rapture of the church" prior to the tribulation period. This is because untold thousands don't want to have to think of suffering through a tribulation time frame. The late Corrie ten Boom called this pre-trib rapture teaching the "American doctrine." Go figure.

The belief in a secret rapture of believers before the tribulation is also because of a best-seller, "The Late, Great Planet Earth," by Hal Lindsey which was set loose in the l960s. It has been a paperback aggressively pushed by practically every evangelical / fundamentalist engine going.

Theologians, videos, films and preachers bolster up this myth with their earnest preachings and teachings.

Yet this is nothing but a myth, accented as much by certain theologically conservative Protestant segments similar unto the Roman Catholic underlining of the immaculate conception of Mary. Nevertheless, if there is no biblical support for such a Mariology teaching, it is bogus. Likewise, the pre-tribulation rapture teaching is bogus.

The pre-trib rapture concept was manufactured in the 1800s in an 18 year old Plymouth Brethren girl's dream, told to her Pastor, John Darby, and then relayed to C. I. Scofield who bought into the dream as revealed truth. Scofield placed this pre-tribulation rapture notion as a footnote in his popular Bible, hence the spread of the myth.

However, just the opposite is biblical truth. In Matthew 24:29-3l, for instance, the rapture ("gathering together") is placed in the same time frame as the open second coming of Jesus Christ. And all of this is "after the tribulation" (verse 29). That is it in a nutshell!

Yet pre-tribulation rapturists sidestep this clear passage for more oblique passages. The latter are twisted and turned in order to fit into the "American doctrine." Yet such twisting is not sound exegesis. And for biblically-riveted evangelicals and fundamentalists to commit this drastic error is bordering on the horrific.

All other passages in Scripture relating to the "gathering together unto Him" must refer back to the literal time line provided by Jesus in Matthew 24.

One must not use a symbolic passage in the Book of Revelation or any other symbolically-based section of the Bible by which to draw a pre-tribulation rapture doctrine.

Further, one must not take words of the apostle Paul so as to insert them opportunistically into a conjured pre-tribulation string of Scripture references. Yet this has been done ad infinitum.

Instead, Jesus' literalism of Matthew 24 must be used as the benchmark for all other "gathering together" themes of Scripture.

One starts with literalism and moves into symbolism when seeking to understand Scripture; it is not the other way around.

During the 1970s and 1980s there was much written and preached about a pre-tribulation rapture. This has wound down some in the last decade or so. Why?

Today, with the world situation being what it is, there is not that much risk-taking in preaching dogmatically the pre-tribulation rapture. Why?

Is it because there are many who are beginning to question its validity? Is it because the world state is so uncertain that to go out on a limb with a false hope may ricochet?

One wonders, with world events progressively becoming more and more anti-Christian, why the pre-tribulation rapture persons are not celebrating each dawn as the day when Jesus may return to earth.

Such is not the phenomenon on a large scale. Furthermore, it may be because the next generation has not bought into this notion.

In any case, it is a myth, a legend of conservative Protestantism's own conjuring and has no base in the Holy Scriptures.

Yet these very Protestants are the ones who ardently point out the myths of Catholicism while holding to some of their own myths. Both segments of Christendom need to do some serious housecleaning of manufactured legends in order to return to the simple Bible truths; otherwise, the church suffers from severe lack of knowledge.

What is so frightening about holding to a pre-tribulation rapture? It is more than mere academic quibbling. Holding to such a notion is drastically weakening the church worldwide.

The church should be preparing for spiritual battle against the most evil forces arrayed by hell.

Instead, the church is languishing with a false hope. This is all orchestrated by the demonic powers in order to
eventuate in a limp army of believers. And to see that through in this age of laxity in religion does not take much on the part of the dark powers. In addition, the apostate segment of religion is doing its fair share of blackening truth.

Does it take much intelligence to realize that there are awesomely wretched days yet ahead for the righteous remnant?

Those who are not strong will drop--fall away, as biblically predicted. They will be too numerous to contemplate. But for those who are truly into carrying the daily cross there will be nothing able to thwart their zeal for Christ.

Already the remnant is being strengthened by the Spirit of light. He is gathering His own together in the power of the resurrection and the might of the revealed Word. There numbers are few; but their ardor before the Father is lovingly honored.

Set your vision upon the difficulties yet to be. They are but the trials permitted by the coming Christ.

At the close of the tribulation period, then there will be the gathering together of the believers from the four corners of the earth. They will greet Jesus in the clouds as He descends through space, having left the right hand of the Father in heaven.

The gathering together ("rapture") and the second advent then will be realized as one and the same event occurring at the end of the tribulation time frame. Jesus' declaration in Matthew 24:29-3l states it clearly.

Mark Hemingway, staff writer for Danish publication Politiken, asserts The Islamic Boy in the Oval Office is greater than Galilee’s Jesus.

Remember the Beatles? Didn’t they claim the same for their elevated position on the planet? Ooops. Didn’t happen.

Barack Hussein Obama’s miracles?

Here is Hemingway’s list: “the right of every American not to be financially shipwrecked when their health fails” as well as the “biggest ever financial support package in America's history, a major disarmament agreement and the quickest-ever re-establishment of American reputation.”

After all, Jewish Jesus only miracle-dazzled for a comparative few. Muslim Obama is caring for millions upon millions. That then, per Hemingway, makes Obama what his mob hysteriacs claimed him to be—the anointed one.

By the way just as an aside, in Hebrew that term “anointed one” means “Messiah” and in Greek means “Christos” or “Christ.” So Hemingway, particularly for agnostics trying to figure out theology, may be on to something by pointing to the Koran-devotee as the Messiah/Christos. Of course, to hold to that is to discount the messianic claims of the historical Jesus.

There are those who query that Hemingway may be writing satirically. If so, he should at least give us a hint.

But if he is not, then the obvious question is that this Danish staff pen should ponder if Obama is of more significance than Mohammed. That would be a winner enthralling.

Hemingway goes on to state that both Obama and Jesus came from “humble beginnings” and helped the “poor and vulnerable.” However, Jesus still comes in second. Obama beats all records by being bigger and grander.

Never mind that the Obamangst surrounding a “health care” stack mass rivaling the Empire State Building, a mass no one understands and few have read, will bring down the sick and weak. It will put on wait lists those panting for immediate medical attention plus bankrupt small employers unable to underwrite health policies.

Never mind that the U.S. masses are throwing anger darts at Pennsylvania Avenue’s health implode. Only a handful agrees with Hemingway’s legendary spin.

Never mind that the anointed one’s financial lift goes to his cronies and government employees kissing up to the messianic throne through another election.

Never mind that the climate warm religion conclave did anything but place the anointed one upon a global pedestal.

In other words, those in the know ask what Danish drape has Hemingway been burrowing under lately?

One of the sharpest minds concerning Islam and its dangers is Ali Sina, ex-Muslim from Iran.

He authored “Understanidng Muhammad: A Psychobiography of Allah’s Prophet” and is webmaster of the informative He founded “Faith Freedom International,” composed of ex-Muslims.

Sina write a thesis entitled “Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer.”

Sina’s insightful analysis of Muslim Barack Hussein Obama is powerful. Sina states: “It is surreal to see the level of hysteria in his admirers. This phenomenon is unprecedented in American politics. Women scream and swoon during his speeches. They yell and shout to Obama, ‘I love you.’ Never George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt. Martin Luther King Jr. or Ronald Reagan aroused so much raw emotions.”

Sina accurately describes the mob hysteriacs who swooned the Islam World Rule enthusiast into the Oval Office. It was raw emotion that won the presidential election. Logic was swept out to sea.

The question now is this: Do these hysteriacs regret what they did?

Those wedded to logic now have to cope with the anguish hysteriacs got us in to with the Chief Enemy of America seated in the White House.

Sina states: “When cheering for someone turns into adulation, something is wrong. Excessive adulation is indicative of personality cult. The cult of personality is often created when the general population is discontent.

“A charismatic leader can seize the opportunity and project himself as an agent of change and a revolutionary leader. Often, people, tired of the status quo, do not have the patience to examine the nature of the proposed change. All they want is change.

“During 1979, when the Iranians were tired of the dictatorial regime of the late Shah, they embraced Khomeini, not because they wanted Islam, but because he promised them change. The word in the street was, ‘anything is better than the Shah.’ They found their error when it was too late.”

Countless Americans are now wondering if it is too late for our democracy. Obama has created his own shadow government to rival the traditional American government. He has manufactured his own dictatorship with clones answering his every dictate.

The Congressional Dems bow at his feet. Obama announced “I win” and now breathes his power though not performing anything, yet continuing the charade.

Sina says: “Listening to Obama … it harkens back to when I was younger and I used to watch Khomeini, how he would excite the crowd and they’d come to their feet and scream and yell.

“I was amused to hear a listener calling Fox News Radio’s Tom Sullivan Show and saying: ‘Listening to Obama … it harkens back to when I was younger and I used to watch those deals with Hitler, how he would excite the crowd and they’d come to their feet and scream and yell.’

“Hitler, prior to coming to power had not killed anyone. He was insane, but few could see that. Far from it, he was seen as a gifted man and hailed as the savior of Germany.

“He was admired throughout the world. He appealed to the masses of people – the working class and particularly to women, and did not just inspire them, he ‘elevated’ them. Thousands rallied to listen to his passionate speeches. He gave them promises of change and instilled in them hope.”

Is that not present tense Obama. He claims the stimulus works but facts are that the stimulus has mainly gone to government workers getting substantial raises.

Obama claims to have elevated blacks and the poor. Instead, he’s undercutting them for Muslim take-over. Yet they are too mesmerized by his cult persona to grasp reality.

Sina says: “They shed tears when Hitler spoke. Women fainted during his speeches. To Germans, he was not a politician, but a demigod, a messiah.

“They envisioned him as truly a magical figure of majestic wisdom and glory. They worshiped him. They surrendered their wills to him. He restored their national pride. He projected himself as their savior. He ran on the platform of change and hope.

“Change he delivered all right, but hopes he shattered.”

Obama considers himself the anointed one. He is fawned by his following as the messiah come upon.

Sina explains: “These revolutionary leaders need foes. They exaggerate the problems. They make everything look gloomy. They lie, cheat and slander their opponents while casting themselves as the saviors of the nation.”

Obama lies and deceives constantly. That is a virtue according to the Koran. Islam’s deity encourages disciples to fool the infidels, even being friendly to them before killing them.

“Hitler chose the Jews to blame for everything that was wrong in Germany.

“Khomeini made the Shah and his westernization plans his scapegoats.

“Obama has chosen President George W. Bush to smear. He can rally people around himself, as long as he can instill in them the dislike of Bush and equate his rival, McCain to him.”

“I imagine how the great jihad will take place, how the muslims will win, insha Allah [God willing], and rule the whole world, and establish the greatest empire once again!!!” reads one post from Feb. 20, 2005 per Leonard Greene’s “Sex Torment Drove Him Nuts” via New York Post.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab blogged the world about his troubles—arousal, loneliness, unveiled females, academics, boarding school angst.

The bomb in his underwear was supposed to splinter airline passengers into their own nirvanas but it didn’t pop off properly, so now we know.

“As i get lonely, the natural sexual drive awakens and i struggle to control it, sometimes leading to minor sinful activities like not lowering the gaze [in the presence of unveiled women],” a poster who goes by the handle “Farouk1986,” wrote on an Islamic Forum Web site,

“And this problem makes me want to get married to avoid getting aroused . . .”

With that sex drive, the dream of Islam World Rule was paramount. He wanted to serve the Koran’s Allah to the maximum, even to splintering himself into virginland.

He has countless clones ready to do the same. The press focuses now on Yemen as the murder supply center. That government is inept. The geography is impossible. The yen to slaughter is high. The Muslim agenda is not blurred; it’s right out there in our faces per the Allah devotee’s own public relations tell-all.

“The hair of a woman can easily arouse a man.

“The Prophet advised young men to fast if they can't get married but it has not been helping me much and I seriously don't want to wait for years before I get married.”

All the while, Barack Hussein Obama calls this young Muslim an “isolated extremist.”

“We will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable.”

Obama finally speaks after a two-day vacationing in Hawaii delay. He’s mouthing promises concerning the airline plane almost pop.

So it goes with Muslim Barack Hussein Obama’s presidential authority while straddling the fence.

He’s going to lose rest because of tallying the names of those out to do in America, making them stand publicly as examples of being naughty naughty.

“We will not rest. . .”

I wonder who the “we” is when his “we” is Muslim aligned, that is, the shadow government receiving large salaries for circling the anointed one so that the grassroots doesn’t know how DC is linking up with Islam World Rule.

Could they be the “we” for it certainly cannot be the grassroots or the Republicans in Congress for all of us have been shut out of any governmental proceedings major.

Now to his term “accountable.”

Obama simply cannot make these Muslim killers accountable for he himself has slipped through the accountability rails so many times that he has no idea as to the definition of “accountable.”

Recall that Obama said during the presidential campaign that he would count on the power of words to bring “change” and “hope.” When Hillary Clinton spoke up most animatedly in a debate, declaring that her personal experience in politics counted for much more than Obama’s adolescent resume, Obama countered with the “power of words” thing.

He’s still counting on the power of words thing. Performance is not his prime. Verbiage is maximum. And even that does not come without a teleprompter.

So there we have another empty promise. Obama is going to lose sleep until every one out to slaughter Americans in the name of the Koran’s Allah is propped up in village squares confessing sins against the Republic.

Now to Yemen.

There are countless numbers in that government crippled geography who told the world that they will not sleep until they have popped off every US citizen.

So, Obama, it’s time to go with paper and pen in hand. Trot to Yemen, print out those names and yank them to Manhattan’s Central Park for confessing their sins against our freedoms.

We all know now that Yemen is the murder factory par excellence, at least at the moment. Of course there are rivals, but Yemen is getting the press. So go to Yemen, scrawl down those ids and plug them low before they get us.

Got it? Now do it, or we’ll impeach you one way or another. Since you find devious means by which to squeeze out your government, we free people out here will find our ways to see through your ousting.

Barack Hussein Obama has lied repeatedly to the American people before and since being elected.

He continues lying as a speaking method. Obviously, having crafted deceit to his satisfaction, that mode will be ongoing.

The Republic has had lying executives before Obama. But they have lied occasionally. Some have been caught.

However, what makes Obama different than the occasional lying previous Presidents is that Obama is religiously committed to lying. It is his conviction that lying is a virtue.

Because Obama is a surrendered Muslim, he knows the cult’s teaching that lying is a must to further Islam World Rule. Therefore, lying occasionally is not his option. It is a spiritual ritual honored by the Koran’s Allah.

Obama lies with a straight face. He lies promptly. He lies on delay. He lies from the Christian pulpit. He lies whenever convenient.

This is the first time that America has had an Islamic disciple sitting in the Oval Office. That man is not aligned with the US Constitution. He is a man of the Koran, regarding it as holy writ.

Obama has a history of Islamic devotion dating back to childhood. He has wedded it to his every thought. It graces his soul’s lodging. He has no question that Islam is the “righteousness” the world needs; therefore, he works with fellow Muslims to bring down our democracy for Islamic despotism.

That means that infidels must be slain or made slaves. Does Obama believe that? Surely he believes that for he has given every indication that he deletes nothing from orthodox Islamic doctrine.

It was Michelle Obama who stated that when the two housed themselves on Pennsylvania Avenue, America would change its “conversation, traditions and history.”

That was said from the depths of her soul. That was her abbreviation for declaring the Islamic lifestyle would replace our American way of life with its Christian heritage.

Obamas despise Christianity. They used their United Church of Christ membership as a mask in order to trick Americans into thinking they were “Christians.” Not so.

Obamas have done nothing to encourage biblical morality, Christian beliefs and convictions in this country. They have worked with liberals to eradicate everything Christian for the secularization of the United States, followed by Islam World Rule filling in the spiritual vacuum.

Because civil citizens loyal to democracy have been purposefully lied to over and over again, Obama should be impeached. He is a fraud. He has the spirit of antichrist. He is the Chief Enemy to America, yet sits in the White House power chair.

Unless Americans rid the executive suite of this wretched specimen, life will grow increasingly difficult for every citizen from coast to coast.

There is no time to waste. It is an imperative, immediate issue that must become paramount if we hope to remain a democracy under God.

Muslim Barack Hussein Obama told the world that the incident was engineered by an “isolated extremist.”

What incident?

That planned by a Muslim murderer potential who was out to destroy human lives by blowing up an airplane.

Obama continues to mask Muslim threats against America, as he did with the Fort Hood murder. That is because Obama is a Muslim through and through. He has told the public that. Why the public does not get that is beyond reason.

Now with this disaster diverted, Obama vacationing in Hawaii delays for two days his presidential statement regarding the matter.

When he did speak, it was without passion and without logic. That is typical Muslim Oval Office occupant. It is all predictable, now and for the next three years unless Americans impeach Obama.

He follows the Koran’s Allah’s dictate to lie on behalf of Islam World Rule. He deceives to destroy America. He knows that his deity honors him in sitting in the White House with the express aim of cooperating with Islamics worldwide in leveling this Republic.

The truth of this “isolated extremist” is that is the latest in a long time line of Muslims ready to swamp the planet, eliminating infidels or making them slaves.

Here is the long timeline of Islam World Rule:

OBSESSION is one of the most informative web sites regarding the deceitful ploys of Islam. Visit it at

On that site, there is provided a time line of Islamic killings and woundings since 1968. Below is an abbreviation of that time line. Read it and be informed.

In July 1968, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) hijacked Israeli El Al Airplanes.

In 1970, Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) killers attacked bus in West Bank, killing Barbara Ertle of Michigan and wounding two others from the US.

In March 1970, PFLP lodged rockets at US Embassy, Beirut, as well as the American Insurance Company, Bank of America and John F. Kennedy library.

In September 1970, PFLP murderers took hold of four airliners, three of which were blown up.

In March 1972, PFLP engaged the Japanese Red Army to machine-gun and grenade attack Israel’s main airport. Twenty-six were slain, 78 wounded, many from the US.

In September 1972, Arab killers attacked Olympic Village, Munich, Germany, kidnapping nine Israelis and slaying two others. A grenade slaughtered athletes while others were trying to rescue them. A German policeman is slain. Jews killed totaled eleven.

In 1973, Back September Muslim killers slew US ambassador, Cleo A. Noel, and charge d’affaires and a Belgian diplomat.

In June 1976, Arab killers hijacked an Air France flight from Tel Aviv.

In August 1976, PFLP attacked Israel’s main airline, El Al. Four were slain, 20 injured.

J. Grant Swank, Jr.

Barack Hussein Obama’s speech reveals his Muslim connection.

He was late. He had no passion. He was once again empty. We are getting to expect this. He has no more surprises, even the macabre ones.

He speaks of the terrorist as “allegedly” criminal. Obama puts it in the context of “allegedly” when all authorities know it to be real-life real-time.

Obama treats the airline threat as he did the Fort Hood murder. Ho-hum. He will continue to do this as long as he sits in the White House.

Further, he delayed two days after the threat. Two days on Hawaiian vacation. That’s typical self-centered, celebrity self-stapled Obama.

Moreover, Obama scolds security for laxity instead of plowing in on the terrorist.

He went on to state the terrorist atrocity potential was an “isolated” situation. Not so. Islam World Rule has a long bloody history of planting its graves globally.

Obama puts security on trial but slides the Muslim murderer potential onto Easy Street. That mode will be the style of Muslim Obama every time. Count on it.

“We will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable. . .The American people should be assured that we are doing everything in our power to make sure you and your family are secure during this holiday season,” the anointed one promised.

Remember: Muslims lie for the Koran’s Allah. They deceive for the same. They dish out opportunistic promises. Obama is following his Islamic catechism lessons to a T.

Don’t count on Obama’s shadow government doing anything he stated in the way of a sweet promise. It won’t happen.

Obama, a Koran devotee, will continue to manage Islam World Rule in every mode possible as the grassroots wonders how to rid the nation of its Chief Enemy.



J. Grant Swank, Jr.

Dr. Sam Vaknin, psychologist, noted “Obama’s shallowness. . .an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling.

“His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama's speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history.

“Never a politician in this land had such quasi ‘religious’ impact on so many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment, makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming.”

More and more professionals are diagnosing Barack Hussein Obama’s mental state and coming to the conclusion that there is something drastically wrong, particularly when he sits in the White House.

Because of that the free world is in real danger of being submerged in a ruthless dictatorship.

Dr. Vaknin, author of the Malignant Self Love: “Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects.”

The psychologist posits that Obama suffers from “narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

“Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations,” says Vaknin.

“Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident.

“Then his mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia, a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a step-father. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents.

“He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995.”

Obama has written his early years as sweet and nurturing, delineating much of it in his own fashion to provide a portrait of a healthily reared youngster ready for notable leadership opportunities.

Standing slimly behind lecterns adds to his appearance of confidence unfolding outstanding accomplishments, hence the outline of a cult leader. Of course, anti-Jews-whites cult leader Jeremiah Wright had sharpened Obama’s skills in that arena.

As Oprah Winfrey provided the soapbox, America’s brain dead fell at Obama’s feet. They wept at his appearance. They quoted him repeatedly. They claimed him as the anointed one due the Republic’s future grandeur.

Anyone claiming Obama to be otherwise was branded as racist.



J. Grant Swank, Jr.

Marxist Muslim Barack Hussein Obama is mentally ill and getting worse.

The angst will continue as long as he persists in Islam World Rule rather than America with Christian heritage intact.

Obama has the spirit of antichrist. One of those indications is his forthright lie about going to the “altar” and meeting Jesus.

Obama told that tale while running for President. At Chicago’s cult factory, otherwise known as Trinity United Church of Christ (Congressional), Obama walked to the sanctuary front during an altar invitation.

There he met Jesus who became his friend.

When I first read that a long, long time ago I thought to myself that in all the United Churches of Christ that I know of—as well as numerous clergy from that like-unto-Unitarianism arch-liberal denomination—I have never known of an altar call being provided at the close of a UCC worship.

The altar call is a tradition within evangelical and fundamentalist congregations. It is when the pastor invites souls to repent of their sins before the Savior, receiving His mercy and forgiveness. They leave their pews and proceed toward the altar at the church front. Souls are converted at those altars. Lives are genuinely changed from darkness to light. Miracles happen.

Recall Billy Graham Crusades when the invitation was given as the choir sang, “Just As I Am.” That is an example of an altar call.

The UCC is not known for that kind of thing, particularly that overseen by Jew-and-white-hating cult leader Jeremiah Wright.

But Obama was trying to get the conservative vote; so he lied in their vernacular. Obama committed blasphemy when he lied about such sacred venues. He committed blasphemy and that sin is upon his soul to this moment.

In addition, during the presidential campaign, Obama held gospel concerts throughout the Bible belt South. That was fraudulent. Obama was wed to the Koran while permitting Jesus hymns sung in his name. Anything for the conservative vote.

Further, Obama, with his insecure childhood, liberal upbringing, Islamic tutelage, and cultic brainwashing for twenty years under Wright, was bent in the direction of cracking. He was reared on the empty side of life—liberalism.

Now he’s got the free world to govern, beginning with the United States. He can’t do it. He’s not the soul for it. Besides, he’s laden with the dark side shadows pressing in. They’re shades from the Pit.

A black Boston pastor said in a talk show interview that Obama was tutored by Wright to the degree that Obama considered Wright a father surrogate. The Boston clergyman concluded that over two decades Obama, in a very real sense, gave his ego to Wright, believing in the “white values” eliminated and black liberal theology controlling America.

Obama has gathered around him a shadow government on the Koran side. He has czars that are committed to Islam World Rule.

All the while, Obama tries to hoodwink the mob hysteriacs who swooned him into office—whites and blacks. But that can only fool so long.

There’s Ramadan, so Obama celebrates with those of like Koran commitment. Then Christmas comes and he tries to show like a Christmas person with his Opray Winfrey gig on TV. When Christmas actually arrives, he attends gymnasium rather than church worship.

Obama, not yet in power a year, is being revealed as the chief enemy of this Republic. The grassroots is catching on, especially with their health care being bankrupt.

Crash crash crash down upon Obama’s tired, anti-God cranium. The antichrist spirit does not have the divine power to carry life’s weights. The Holy Spirit does provide such wisdom. But Obama is not in league with the Holy Spirit.

Judgment day approaches. “Be sure your sins will find you out.”

God is still upon His throne. God cares about Christian heritage America. He answers intercessions of the righteous—past and present.

Therefore, day upon day, Obama’s head closes in, his soul descends deeper into its own hypocrisy, and the devil’s fruit shows rot.



J. Grant Swank, Jr.

How can Muslim Barack Hussein Obama fight off the Muslims wanting to destroy America?

Every knowledgeable individual knows there are countless Muslim sleeper cells. There are over 4000 Muslim websites.

Last night kiss-up-to-Barack Chris Matthews looked ready for a nervous breakdown. He had news mouths giving forth as to how far terrorism is spreading.

Of course the words “Muslim” or “Islam” were never used. It’s always the mask term “terrorism,” as if the viewers don’t know the code language.

So the mouths were verbalizing how the Koran devotees are creeping into crevices far and wide. One mouth counted out the geographies—America, Canada, “all over Europe.”

Then they gave place to Joe Lieberman’s forecast that Yemen is the next Afghanistan.

There sat Matthews still getting the love feeling sneaking up his leg when the name of the Anointed One is mentioned. But now his countenance grimaced.

What is the United States going to do? How are we going to protect ourselves? Where are we going to hide?

Well, the obvious question that comes to mind is this: How can a Muslim Oval Office Chief fight off his own? He is surrounded by a shadow government sworn to the same plot.

Mob hysteriacs gloried this horse into the White House. And now they are stuck with the mess.

It seems to be an elementary fact that a Muslim
President cannot quell Muslim enthusiasts who have given their blood to slaughtering all infidels.

Another elementary thought just might be this: Why should a Muslim President quell Muslim enthusiasts who have given their blood to slaughtering all infidels when that Muslim President is furthering the scheme?

Makes for a fairly solid game plan for Islam World
Rule, don’t you think?


J. Grant Swank, Jr.

I laid off the news over Christmas. Local, national and international.

That meant that I came back to the old-fashioned American Christmas. And I didn’t have to make believe.

I met villagers who greeted me with “Merry Christmas.” It was actually “Merry Christmas” and not “Happy Holidays.”

Even in the stores, when I finished with my purchase, I noted clerks pausing. Were they told to say only “Happy Holidays” or could they venture “Merry Christmas”?

I beat them to the draw and cheerily gave forth with “Merry Christmas.” The clerks’ faces lit up and I got a “Merry Christmas” in return. With that, the matter was joyfully sealed with Christmas old-fashioned.

Even signs along our business route sported the words “Merry Christmas.” A couple were hold-outs for the nonsense politically correct “Happy Holidays” but the rest fell right in line with what we have known in America in December: “Merry Christmas.”

And when I turned on TV, talk shows didn’t hesitate to say “Merry Christmas.”

The seasonal movie channels had showing after showing of smiley-faced bottom line “Merry Christmas” this and that from every fun, loving angle possible.

On Christmas Eve, sanctuary-lighted churches throughout our area invited worshipers to services. Parking lots were full. If you couldn’t make it to the 6 PM time, 7PM or 11PM commuion would do. And so it went.

No daily news. No talk about DC. No political analyses. No Obamas.

Relatives gathered, gifts exchanged, carols sung, eggnog passed around the room and snow gracing the meadows.

Gift certificates topped the category pick for presents. Of course, there were still the silly items and stocking stuffers. But the next generation is teaching us how to hand over a favorite coffee stop card and so forth.

There were still enough wrappings to pick up under chairs and tables, toss into the trash and get on with pouring more water in the tree holder to keep greenery fresh.

Christmas cards were neatly stacked or taped to fridge fronts or more decoratively laced around the main room.

Phone calls to family members geographically tossed thither and yon carried voices loved dearly into our Christmas scenes.

In Maine, I concluded, are some of the most gorgeous winter scenes possible. God is so abundantly kind to us here in these northeast parts. And the plows cooperate! They are out promptly in this frosted state.

Driving up Douglas Mountain after a fresh snow is a delightful treat straight from heaven’s throne to our Lake Sebago clusters. No doubt about it. Pine tree limbs are laden with white puffs, the sky blue, then dark blue and then streaked evenings with the most orangish spread.

Last night I thought that round glowing moon was never going to go nighty-night. Our Christmastide moon kept watch to make nighttime like daytime white.

I scooped up some of my wife’s freshly baked cookies, especially the sugar cookies glowing with red and green luscious sequins. Then I slid a few other favorite types into one of those brightly decorated round cookie cans we store in the attic till December.

A greeting card and tiny pine branch topped the delicacies for our bachelor neighbor in the cottage down the road. When I knocked on his door, two huge dogs greeted me, of course. And next, Glenn. His broad smile said it all as he lifted the cookie can from my hand to his.

Then a rude thought entered into my festive head. It was intrusion rude. Nevertheless, after giving it room for a quick second, I dismissed it into the rubbish.

The thought was remembering Michelle Obama promising America that when she took over the White House—of course, Barack Hussein Obama by her side, America would transform.

Michelle said that when the two took chrage, America’s “conversations, traditions and history” would change.

Change? To what?

To Muslim, naturally. Without ruining this remembrance-thread with detail, suffice it to say that this couple determined—and still are on course with their plot—to remake America, particularly imploding its Christian heritage for Islam World Rule.

But this December, as I shut down the news flow for Christmas, I looked around me to realize that my neighbors, as far as I could fathom, were hankering for an old-fashioned American Christmas.

I concluded that Obamas just don’t fit in, no how. And they never will.

America will not be changed for the Koran’s Allah. America will return, God willing it, to what has made it the most fascinating place to live on Earth.

J. Grant Swank, Jr.

NazNet Site Manager Scott Cundiff still chooses to question whether the Bible is totally reliable as the infallible Word of God.

Site founder and moderator Dave McClung must be confused as well for he has been appealed to to stand alongside the Bible as the Word of God that can be trusted from Genesis to Revelation.

However, McClung continues to foster questions and doubts about the Word of God.

Staff Hans Deventer joins in with the same stanza.

Yet NazNet states on its site that is the friend to the Church of the Nazarene. Not so.

The Protestant evangelical denomination stands with those who witness to the Word of God being absolutely reliable as divine revelation.

Once one thread is pulled from this stance, the whole Bible can be unwoven.

I know. I was a divinity student at Harvard Divinity School. I saw what theologians can do to pull all threads from the Word of God. The end result is Unitarianism, where I was seated as a young
ministerial student.

I know how dangerous that unbiblical journey can become.

Yet NazNet applauds it.

The Church of the Nazarene General Superintendents have been informed of this but seem not to be doing anything about it and its relationship to the site.

This is a travesty.




J. Grant Swank, Jr.

“The Bible isn't clear about the intermediate state. . .”

That is Hans Deventer lamenting.

The Bible says nothing about an intermediate state.

Why does this Deventer persist that it does? Is this NazNet staffer a part of the Church of the Nazarene? NazNet says he is.

Yet that denomination no way states anything about such a state. It is bogus. Yet the staffer continues posting on the Dave McClung site that the latter states it is supportive of the Church of the Nazarene.

This is totally confusing and disturbing for it goes on and on and on.

When is this intrusion of non-biblical nonsense going to come to an end so that readers are not taken off the biblical course?

McClung has been appealed to about this matter. Nothing done.

Deventer has been appealed to about this matter. Nothing done.

There it is on the site for the world to read as if it is an issue crucial to the Church of the Nazarene.

The Bible speaks of heaven and hell, no intermediate state.

Roman Catholicism speaks of limbo for the unbaptized dead children and purgatory for those not accepted directly into heaven.

All this is heresy.

So where does NazNet staffer Deventer come up with his own concoction of the intermediate state?

Please, NazNet, clean up your site or apologize to readers and the Church of the Nazarene for being sloppy in maintaining your site or purposefully directing readers into heresy.

J. Grant Swank, Jr.

Reading through my diary this Christmas, I came across this detail below. I reflected on that pain. Today, the pain is gone due to my son living for the Christ Child, evangelizing in His holy name, and overseeing his Christian home under God.

It is amazing how such suffering can continue for years; but then free will explodes in heaven’s favor so as to filter out the anguish.

This Christmas I just visited my son and grandchildren. In the midst of the celebration, we paused to read the Christmas account from the Gospel of Luke. As I read down through the verses, I could hardly believe that the diary’s bloody pages were now replaced with “Glory be to God for His saving grace.”

Here is the diary detail of years past:

I guess it is a father-son thing. At least that is what the two of us used to call it.

I’d take Jay out for pizza—just the two of us—and we would call it a Father and Son Evening. It was really quite exciting and fulfilling, too.

I can recall when he was just a baby, curling his tiny fingers around my one finger. I would lay him on my chest and then he would fall asleep. He was just a bit bigger than what I could hold in my two hands—tiny tiny tiny.

And all brown. A perfect brown. His skin was exceptionally smooth. What an awesome color.

His mother was white. His father was black. We don’t know any more about him than that.

He was born in July. We adopted him in September. That was over 25 years ago. He has known no other home but ours, no other family but ours.

So it was that as he grew older, we two had more and more Father and Son Evenings. Sometimes they were as simple as going for ice cream. Sometimes they involved traveling or exploring a new venture.

But when he talked to me the other day on the phone—Father and Son Afternoon? I guess you could call it that. But there was no excitement or fulfillment in it. It was a call that ached.

When I heard the phone ring, I lifted the receiver to get a recording. It was from a federal prison. The voice was masculine and it informed me that the first minute’s talk would cost me over four dollars. The next minute would cost me 70-some cents. Further, there would be 70% interest charge to top it off.

If I wanted to accept the call, I pushed a button on my phone front. If not, I could hang up.

I pushed the button.

Jay said, “Merry Christmas.” I answered with same—at least from my tongue; but it all got lost somewhere in my chest as far as my heart was concerned. I wonder sometimes where my heart is in all this stuff that’s been going on in Jay’s life in the last whatever years. I quit counting the years; but they add up to be too many, that’s for certain.

In his mid-teens, Jay traded in our family for that of the low-life sub-culture. He went for that surrogate dark-sided clan big time—in far more intense, hurtful and complicated terms that I would ever want to know.

It cost him five years in federal facilities—in New York, then Ohio, and finally Michigan. My wife and I drove over five years to those three locations to see our son for two-day visits. Lots of miles. Lots of heart.

And for what?

I wonder. Of course, life is not over. So there is much tallying yet to do—maybe; however, I surely do pray and hope that sometime it will take a turn for the light side.

While on probation, details unbeknownst to me by my choice, Jay broke the rules. So back to fed housing, hence the phone call and “Merry Christmas” from behind bars. Father and Son Afternoon. Right? Right not.

I wish I had a son.

I have two lovely daughters—biologically ours. But I had always dreamed of having a multi-racial boy—mine. And I at one time I had got him. But somewhere along the travels, he left me. I don’t know exactly when it was that I lost my son, but I lost him.

Oh, we would meet from time to time, but I had not counted on our Father and Son fests being in a lawyer’s office or court room with Jay’s ankles in leg chains or a fed visiting room with guards seated on raised platforms watching our every move.

Where was the camaraderie a father and son were to enjoy when the boy reached teens and young adulthood? I will never know. I have no other son to discover that with.

And how many years does my own adopted son think his adoptive father has on this earth for that boy to turn around to locate his dad? When? How? And finally, why?

“Merry Christmas” through bars is no fun.

All the while we were talking over the phone, I kept wondering where my voice box had gone. It was giving forth sounds, but to this day, I don’t know what I said. In other words, how many worn, pre-programmed cliches can a dad come up with when he’s lost for words, especially when writing is his vocation and words trip off his tongue or fingers while in his sleep?

“Merry Christmas” through bars.

I thank God that in time I did come upon two grand sons-in-law. They are such terrific fellows to be with. They treat me with courtesy and honor, something I had not discovered in Jay, that is, until after his mid-teens.

Now that I look back on his pre-mid-teen years, Jay would treat me with such respect. In fact, six footer that he ended up to be, while maturing, he would walk into a room filled with others to go straight for me. Then he would give me a bear hug and smack a manly kiss on my forehead. But. . .those days disappeared once he bonded with the underground family.

Nevertheless, God’s gift of two sons-in-law has filled the void to a significant degree. I look forward to their visits and conversation and laughter and nonsense. They have surely been worth the wait.

But with all that said, there is still an empty place way down deep inside. I try to ignore it. I try to put it aside. I try not to think about it. But the empty place won’t go away.

In other words, it was meant to be filled and moving and happy and gracious and embracing. It’s where my adopted son should be.

Jay, why do you do these awful things to yourself and to your family? Why are your choices so selfish and destructive? Why do you wake up in the morning to ruin the day for those who gave themselves to you since you were reclining there on my chest, since you curled your tiny fingers around
my finger?


I looked into your face as you stood there in your tuxedo as one of the groomsmen at Heidi’s wedding. You were handsome, for sure. There was not a flaw in your face. Your build is striking and strong. You walk into any room and take it over without saying a word.

What happened to you along the way, Jay? Where did you go? Why did you leave us? Surely five years in a federal prison cell got through your thick selfish head some basics for survival and kindness to those who poured out their love for you.

Yet seemingly not. You landed right back where you had languished for five

But I’m going on too long. This is stretched out much too much. For my own Christmas this Christmas I must get on with it, tending to matters that are close at hand.

There are carols to sing and presents to wrap. There are guests coming for dinner in a few minutes. There is a wife who needs help setting the table. And my daughters and their husbands will be here before I turn around.

Jay, I wish you could be with us. How I wish it. And pray for it. But you are seated somewhere out of state in a cold, lifeless prison.

So with that, I send out to your heart from mine—“Merry Christmas”.

Harry Reid is a first-generation member of The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints.

Nancy Pelosi is a member of the Roman Catholic Church.

Barack Hussein Obama is a member of Trinity United Church of Christ, using that as a mask for his allegiance to Islam.

Read ”Obama States He is a Muslim” at

Mormon, Catholic and Muslim—all three at this year’s Christmas manger. And what are they doing before the Holy Child? They are playing the devil’s part, as Herod.

All three despise the Christian heritage of this nation. They despise it with every ounce of blood in their bodies.

They disdain the Christ in that they spit upon His ethical teachings.

They totally disregard the Holy Scriptures.

They link up with the spirit of antichrist in giving their energy to slaying womb babies. They applaud same-sex nuptials. They espouse the secularization of this Christian heritage country.

Muslim Obama is working most aggressively for Islam World Rule, Michelle alongside him informing the world that the United States will change its “traditions, conversation and history.”

For what?

For the Koran devotees who evangelistically labor for the elimination of every non-Muslim.

A Mormon who tramples on the Bible.

A Catholic who thumbs her nose at the Scriptures.

And a Muslim who has all around him Islamics devoted to change this country into a Koran-adhering nation.

When Christ was born in Bethlehem, the devil was in Herod. Herod told the wise men to return to him with the whereabouts of the Christ’s lodging.

God told the astrologers not to do that, to take another route than Herod’s suites. For that, Herod commissioned his soldiers to slay every baby two years and younger.

The devil was at the manger’s side. Because of the angel’s intervention, Christ and His parents escaped to Egypt until the bloodthirsty Herod was dead.

Wherever God moves, the devil is close by to undermine the divine. It has been so since Eden.

Today in America we have three of the devil’s henchmen stalking this Christmas week plotting the killing of the Christ in every church, neighborhood and home. They will do their best to enthrone the Evil One.

However, God is God—the Alpha and Omega. He will keep His promises to His people.

Yes, there will be a “great falling away” spiritually in these End Times, just as biblical prophecy testifies.

But those who remain true to the Christ Child will realize daily the divine promises kept intact.

As I sat in that courtroom--cold, impersonal, austere space--I looked straight ahead at my adopted teen son with his feet in chains. He was dressed in that dreaded orange outfit. His otherwise handsome face was grimaced, especially as he shot shamed glances at his mother and me when entering through the side door. Guards were on either side of him.

He would end up in a federal prison for several years.

However, his mother and I both knew that Jay was on a course of self-destruction. He had run away from home several times, was unruly when he was in that surly mood, and regarded no other final authority than his own. Not good for making it through this life.

Nevertheless, as my striking multi-racial boy stood straight before the judge, I could not help but see--not that grown teen--but a little baby only two and a half months old. That was his age when we adopted him, gave him my name and hugged him to our hearts.

I saw in front of me, not a man before the law, but a little babe, a tiny tot, cuddly and warm, smelling of fresh powder and looking endearingly into my face. He was wrapped in that first blue blanket we bought him. He was smiling, cooing. How we delighted in showing him off to everyone we met!

Then I recalled visiting him in the state youth center after one of his earlier escapades. My wife and I dreaded that crudely put-together waiting room. We had to sign in, behave ourselves as if we were under some sort of investigation, treated somewhat humanly. If this was the "cordiality" we were accorded, what was it that the youth were enduring?

As Jay would come into the room to visit with us each Sunday afternoon, I saw there, not so much my misbehaving son, but a squirming baby boy in my arms, held tightly to my heart. Then I saw him as a toddler, then off to the waiting bus on his first day at school, then a pre-teen all dressed up for some event.

During one visit, a mother from the northern part of our state introduced herself to us. I could tell that she was distraught. She too was waiting to see her troubled teen son. Then it was that her boy came through the door, dragging his chained feet behind him.

In an instant that anguished mother jumped to her feet to embrace her own. Many tears flowed from the two of them. Not much in the way of words; but much in the language of the soul.

It was then that I could feel in her the wretched piercing of that sword, just as it had pierced my heart on too many occasions. There was a mother seeing, not so much her sixteen-year-old son, but her six-day-old newborn, her six week old baby, her six month old growing child.

It was when my son was in prison that I wrote him a letter in which I related to him that when a child goes wayward, the parents are cut through and through with the memories of childhood.

I then attempted to get him to understand the slippery, twisting sword that cuts right through every one of life's muscles.

So it was that once again this Christmas I thought of still another parent. Her name was Mary. She had in her womb the Son of all sons--Jesus. In the jubilation of that pregnancy, however, there was a sword promised her. Luke tells of it in his account. It was a dagger that would cut close to her very

Mary. Mary! How you ever lived through all of that utter brokenness I will never fathom. It simply is beyond my imagination. When I compare the pain that my wife and I have endured, how then did you ever stand up beneath all that needless anguish inflicted upon your holy Offspring, Jesus?

He too wore the chains. He too was scoffed and derided, led before authorities for harsh scowls and snickers. He then was laced between heaven and earth for a crime that He never committed--but for crimes that WE have done. Yet through it all, you stayed there beneath His bleeding frame--patiently praying, wrestling with the shame.

Surely, as you looked from Calvary into the face of your grown Son, you too held in your arms the precious Bethlehem Baby. Cuddling Him. Kissing His cheeks. Spreading your kind fingers across His brow. Wanting to rub out those fears and injustices.

Yet when He was but a tiny One, as you held Him in your arms beneath night's Star, you knew in your heart of hearts that someday you would hold Him in your arms when He lay limp from the cross. Pieta. How could it be?

At this Christmas, I give praise to God for Mary, a parent who endured the sword, who stayed true to Her Son because of that sword and now receives the just honor given her.

May every parent who likewise endures the sword find such courage as came from Mary. Thank you God for providing the strength to endure to the very end, for her and for us.

Senator Ben Nelson gave conservatives and moralists a Christmas gift early.

He became the 60th traitor to the Republic.

In that, he blew Nebraska away from east to west. They’re mad mad mad.

That is Nelson’s evil gift to his state. That is Nelson’s wicked gift to America.

I have been wondering a long, long time when it will come to madness. When will grassroots holler till the moon wiggles through night skies?

Nelson’s constituency is dwindling, as it should. May this happen to every other Congressperson who voted for a paper stack none of them have read, few understand.

This is like passing out empty sheets of paper to a first grade class and then asking them what is on it. The first one who says something about the drawing that is not there gets an A. The next one who describes what color the nothing is gets an A.

And so on.

These Congresspersons are not only insulting to the intelligent mind. They represent clinically concluded deranged individuals in need of extensive mental and emotional therapy, not to mention spiritual counseling.

Instead, these morally bankrupt Congresspersons walked off with gift stockings overflowing. May they roast in hell. And may their stocking stink to high heaven.

Talk about greed on Wall Street.

These are the examples of the maximum unethical. They are cheap. They are tawdry. They are the scum bottom.

When I read what they have done to this Republic, I think I have slipped inadvertently into some Banana Republic overseen by the Castros of history.

Nelson, you are at the top of the heap for you, in your suave demeanor and appearing compassionate voice, roasted those of us who breathe to be free.

In what you did, you gave more power to the Marxist Muslim already gloating in the Oval Office. He is surrounded by Muslims. They have set up their own Islamic power clutch. Only God knows what is the future of America with these Koran-loving power deceivers seated in DC.

Nelson, you are publicly shamed. Your wrists and ankles should be locked in chains in the village square.

May be you be dumped, and that quite early. Not soon enough. Not at all.

My new son, Jeff, is out of jail, as of last February. Now this Christmas he put up the tree with his two children—Haley and Jeff Jr.

I saw them last evening. When I walked into the house, there the three of them were sprawled across the living room floor playing a board game. Haley is 8. Jr. is 11. Jeff Sr. is 35.

I met Jeff when I was a substance abuse counselor at Cumberland County Jail, Portland, Maine. He was placed for a daily job in the education center. The pay was a few cents per hour. But that’s okay. He got out of his cell during daylight hours in order to be productive with books, computers and such.

Then I left that position for another. Jeff stayed back in jail to serve out his time. We lost contact with one another. One day I got a letter in the mail from Jeff. He was back in jail—South Windham facility. I wrote back that I would make arrangements to visit him.

It was another Operating Under the Influence—driving while drinking. That’s what had sent him behind bars in his young for 6 out of those few years on Earth. In and out of jail because of the bottle. Not healthy. Not good. Not a life, that’s for sure.

But Jeff became a Christian—a real one, not one of those jail house religion conversions that’s made up for a time and then peters out when released to the outside air. Jeff became a Christian, read his Bible through, prayed earnestly and listened to counsel regarding the life to live.

In February, Jeff was set free to a rehab house in the city. I visited him there. Then he got a job and actually came upon a small house that an elderly lady had lived in for years. He bought it with the sale of some property he had had prior. That was nothing but a gift from God—Jeff’s dwelling in the city—large acreage around it, too.

While Jeff was in the South Windham jail, he told me of his childhood—not loving and kind but full of abuse. After tallying the detail, I asked him at one visit if he would like me to be his father. His bio father had not treated him that well. He responded by saying that he would be glad to be my son—so it was that I spiritually adopted Jeff as my son.

Now this December I am so justly proud of my son, Jeff. I wrote him that in a letter the other day. When I visited him last evening he took me aside in the kitchen to thank me especially for the father-son letter. We hugged. I told him I was so proud of him and knew that God would continue to guirde his future as he obeyed the divine will.

Now this Christmastide I think back over the years: Jeff at Cumberland County Jail, then South Windham, then released, now living in his own house, fathering his own children, worshiping with our fellow believers Sundays, and blended into our household as son.

God has truly blessed me this holy season. I thank Him over and over for a young, handsome fellow by the name of Jeff.
