Will we interpret our sexuality through the lens of the Scriptures … or will we interpret the Scriptures through the lens of our sexuality? That is the ultimate question.

It is wonderful to read the account of Kirsten Powers’ conversion from atheism to Christianity. But that doesn’t make her into a Bible scholar or theologian, and Powers has made some grave errors in her recent article on “Christianity’s new look on gays.”
She begins by asking the question, “Could there be a future where most American Christians support same-sex relationships?”
The obvious answer is: “Only if these Christians renounce the Word of God and the God of the Word.”
I read that you are indefinitely suspending Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty after he quoted the Bible and said that the homosexual act is sinful. I get it, guys. I do. You punished the Christian guy for being a Christian because you got some angry emails from a bunch of whiny gay activists who lack the spine and maturity to deal with the fact that there are still people out there who have the guts to articulate opinions that they find disagreeable. In so doing, you’ve kowtowed to a pushy minority of vocal bullies who don’t even watch your channel, while alienating the fan base of the one show that keeps your entire network afloat.
From RedState.com, By: Erick Erickson, March 26th, 2013 –
The kids these days on the right are full of a great libertarian notion that “hey, let’s just get the government out of marriage.”
“Rock on,” say other libertarians.
They then all smugly self-congratulate themselves, pat themselves on the back, and move on to other issues.
What they ignore is that the left will never take marriage out of the hands of the government. The left cannot. But it goes beyond that.

IN THE SCHOOL
Yesterday marked a huge win for students’ religious freedoms, as the Kountze High School Cheerleaders secured a victory in their Bible banner case. These brave young women stood strong, proving that wonderful things can happen when you make the bold choice to stand for your faith.
Last fall, Kountze ISD banned the high school cheerleaders from writing Bible verses on run-through banners at school sporting events. The Kountze superintendent made the decision after the district received a threatening demand letter from Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation.
During a question and answer session at a recent speaking engagement, a university student asked me, “Why do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God?”
Now this is a very interesting question, and probably one of the most important questions any Christian could ask themselves. What is so special, so unique about the Bible that Christians believe it is literally the inspired word of God?
In answering this student’s question, I encouraged him to consider the following facts about the Bible.

Movieguide® recently had the opportunity to screen some of the footage from “The Bible” series. The series will be on the History Channel in March and will air in two-hour increments for five straight Sundays.
From what we’ve seen so far, we can say this appears to be a truly wonderful rendition of the Bible.
Obama-affirmed ‘Religious Freedom Day’ prompts bold initiative
From WND.com, by Drew Zahn, 01/22/13 – A citizens group called World Changers of Florida, Inc., has had to fight to bring the Bible back to school, but thanks to a court decision – and in honor of the President Obama-affirmed “Religious Freedom Day” – is once again distributing thousands of copies of the Scriptures to students in the Sunshine State.
For years, World Changers had honored Religious Freedom Day by providing free Bibles to interested students by placing them on tables in Florida schools where they could be voluntarily picked up during non-instructional time.
by Lenny Leatherman – President Obama may belittle 2nd Amendment patriots by chiding us for “clinging to our guns and religion”. It’s ok for him to exercise his 1st Amendment right to free speech as long as he doesn’t tamper with our 2nd Amendment right to “keep and bear arms” – a right that “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”.
As Benjamin Franklin emerged from Independence Hall at the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a woman asked him, “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”
Mr. Franklin replied, “A republic, madam – if you can keep it.”
Today I would submit to you that the 2nd Amendment is yours – “If you can keep it”.
God’s personal comments jump off the page in stunning fashion
A World Net Daily Exclusive, July 9, 2012 – “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.”
That’s a famous line from the very first chapter of the Book of Genesis. And in virtually every Bible on sale these days, those words are printed with typical black ink.
But now, a brand-new book hot off the printing press is causing Bible lovers to rejoice as it features the personal comments spoken by God in red letters, in both the Old and New Testaments, instead of just the New Testament alone.
