Restless Ramblings


Tolerance?

Last week Proposition 8 was passed in California that enshrines into the state constitution that marriage is between one man and one women. The gay community has show how tolerant they really are. In the book of Genesis, God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah due to their tolerance of violent, extreme homosexuality, and God could not find 10 righteous. Will God find 10 righteous in the United States?



Chose This Day Whom You Will Serve!

Recently the black church in America has celebrated the election of Obama and praised God for it.
As a believer, I am shocked any other believer in Jesus Christ would anybody be happy for the election of somebody who does not regard unborn babies as precious but rather a “punishment?” Why celebrate the most liberal person who supports unbridled sodomy?

Johsua 24:15 – Chose this day whom you will serve!

Black churchgoers celebrate, give thanks for Obama’s win

Pastor Shirley Caesar-Williams opened her sermon Sunday at Mount Calvary Word of Faith Church with a prayer of thanks for the election of Barack Obama — at the risk of her flock getting “more excited over this than you do over the word.”

“Too long we’ve been at the bottom of the totem pole, but he has vindicated us, hallelujah,” she cried. “I don’t know about you, but I don’t have nothing to put my head down for, praise God. Because when I look toward Washington, D.C., we got a new family coming in. We got a new family coming in. And you know what? They look like us. Amen, amen. They look like us.”

And on the day King famously called “the most segregated day of the week,” they also called for the nation to come together behind the man who will be the first black president.

In his Web message last week, senior pastor Gregg Matte of Houston’s 167-year-old First Baptist Church decried a society that has turned to government as its savior.

“Today,” he wrote, “Hollywood is our pastor, technology is our Bible, charisma is our value and Barack Obama is our President.”

But from the pulpit Sunday, Matte asked the 1,000 or so mostly white faces staring back at him to “lift up President-elect Obama” even if he wasn’t their choice on Tuesday.

 

Across the country, from a mostly white church in the Southwest to the pulpit from which the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. preached his message of equality and nonviolent change, Christian clergy members on Sunday asked God to give Obama the wisdom and strength to lead the country out of what many consider a wilderness of despair and gloom.

 

“God has vindicated the black folk,” the Grammy-winning gospel singer said as a member of the congregation waved an American flag and another marched among the pews blowing a ram’s horn.
