article below I would encourage you to read. This was brought to
my attention in church today. It's not new - news that our
country is moving towards a godless society very quickly. What I
think we need to see in this article is this, as those groups
within our country who are anti-God begin to gain traction and
they succeed in attacking and removing those symbols that
represent Christ, they will go from symbols to our churches and
then to our homes and finally to us individually and personally.
This is an attack
against Christ and His Lordship. Our Lord warned us that in
the last days the world would hate Him and then you and I
would be hated. I fear we are seeing that process take shape
and we should all pray now while we can. This move against
God is not going away and will only get worse as we move
closer to the return of Christ!
Last thought... What
impacted me so much in church today when I saw the actual
picture of the cross prior to this action, was that it's
an old white looking cross, and then the multimedia techs
flashed what it now looks like. The cross is now encased in
a wooden box, a square wooden box on a solitary lonely hill
in the middle of the desert. I leaned over to my wife and
said, "honey, you see that box, that's what the Lord is
going to allow in our country, He's going to allow this
country to be boxed in just like that cross." It's so
uncanny, that the world is trying to kill all thoughts,
memory and images of Yeshua and I've got news for them
all... He died for the world once and He's not going to die
again! They can put our symbols in coffins or boxes, God is
not going away and He can't be buried or boxed out of
ACLU Cases on Religion: Signs of Schizophrenia?
Legal Eagles Put Kibosh on Memorial Cross, Say Thumbs-Up to
By Chad Groening and Jim
August 2, 2002
(AgapePress) - It appears the
ACLU has a problem with some displays of Christianity on
public lands -- and no problem with others. The legal group
has succeeded in getting a judge to order the removal of a
memorial cross from a national monument in California. At
the same time, it helped a Michigan pastor get the permit he
wanted to conduct baptisms in a state lake.
A conservative Christian
attorney says the American Civil Liberties Union is once
again demonstrating its anti-Christian bias by convincing a
federal judge to order a cross removed from the Mojave
National Preserve, located east of Barstow, California. The
six-foot cross, which has been at Sunrise Point for nearly
70 years, was erected to honor the veterans of the First
But now, thanks to the suit
filed last year by the ACLU, the National Park Service has
been ordered to take it down -- because the judge says it
amounts to a state endorsement of religion.
Brian Fahling of the American
Family Association Center for Law & Policy calls that
"The ACLU, apparently concerned
that the cacti and lizards may become converted Christians,
is now seeking to have it torn down," Fahling says. "This is
the type of thing that borders on the ridiculous, and
perhaps does indeed become ridiculous."
The attorney describes the
dispute as another remarkable, but not so uncommon, example
of the ACLU's "absolutely histrionic effort" to stamp out
any semblance of Christianity from American culture. "We're
talking about a cross ... out in the Mojave National
Preserve," he says. "That's not an establishment of
religion. The gentleman who put it up in 1934 was attempting
to acknowledge the World War I veterans, which seems to me a
laudable undertaking on his part."
Fahling also thinks it is
telling that the ACLU has been quiet about the ongoing case
in North Carolina, where college students are being forced
to read literature advocating Islam. "I think it's pretty
telling as to what the goal of the ACLU is -- and that's to
stamp out Christianity, but to leave in place other
religions that are antithetical to Christianity."
Fahling hopes that a higher
court, perhaps even the Supreme Court, will overturn the
judge's ruling on the cross in the desert.
Meanwhile, a Michigan pastor has
enlisted the help of the American Civil Liberties Union
after he was denied a permit to conduct baptism services at
a lake operated by the Department of Natural Resources.
Groups have used the waters of
Eagle Lake in Augusta, Michigan, for baptisms in the past,
but there have been some problems. According to park
officials, last year a Christian group cordoned off part of
the beach and played loud music that disturbed beachgoers.
So when Pastor William Stein,
the founder of Baptism USA Ministries, requested a permit
this year, he was denied on the grounds that the service
would conflict with other park uses. In addition, the policy
for the recreation area specifies that any church service
approved in the parks must be interdenominational and cannot
advance a specific religion.
Stein says the DNR's denial was
a violation of his First Amendment rights. "By prohibiting
us from baptizing in the month of June, [the DNR] also
violated the Michigan constitution -- primarily, Article 1,
subsections 2 and 4, which deal with religious freedoms in
the State of Michigan," the pastor says. "So there's still
misinformation that the DNR has provided to the general
public regarding this issue."
But with the help of the ACLU
of Michigan, Stein has now obtained a permit to conduct
baptisms at the lake. That is somewhat ironic, since the
ACLU is well-known for its efforts to remove God from the
public square. But Stein is grateful for the ACLU's
"People have to understand that
the ACLU investigates issues on a case-by-case basis," he
says, "and there are some lawsuits that the ACLU has filed
as it relates to biblical issues that I myself do not
approve. [But] when we approached the ACLU regarding our
specific issue, and after reviewing the information
presented, they were more than happy to represent us."
Even though Stein has now
obtained the permit he sought, the ACLU is still moving
forward with litigation.
