Vote Biblically: Grassroots Effort

Vote Biblically is a grass roots movement whose goal is to communicate the importance of the Christian Vote in restoring the Biblical Values our forefathers originally built into the U.S. Constitution.

Our present major initiative is to unleash the pent-up power of the Christian Vote to determine the direction of legislation and jurisprudence in this country. We believe that much of what is being acted on, from gay marriage to abortion is the result of the godless politicians being elected at every level of government. We use yard signs and vehicle decals to draw attention to and focus thinking on Voting Biblically, thus electing officials who will act to bring God back into the American way of life.

Senator, a couple of days ago, you left the stage. Some said you were booed off the stage at the event. Do you have any regrets about that?

   The event was heartbreaking, what happened there. It was a gala dinner in Washington that was put together to defend Christians who are being persecuted, who are being murdered throughout the Middle East. This has been a passion of mine for a long time. For many, many months, I have been endeavoring over and over again to try to highlight the persecution of Christians, the pastors who are imprisoned, the Christians who are being literally crucified and beheaded for their faith.

Our current radio program considers this issue briefly. Listen here or here.

The world continues to rush towards a global religion. . .

After officials in the German capital offered his parish a prime site to build a new house of worship, the Rev. Gregor Hohberg had a kumbaya moment. Why not transform a city stained by the Nazi era into a place of spiritual healing by building a church, a mosque and a synagogue all under one roof?

Scaremongering Our Way to Despotism

What has allowed the forces of darkness to steal our freedom is a profound state of apathy on the part of the public. Most people don't see their lives being impacted enough to care about their freedoms.

What may have people so fooled into laziness is the expectation that a dictator will first come and then be followed by autocratic rules. Right now, we are on a track that has the despotism coming first. When the tyrant finally arrives, he will be warmly welcomed by a nation that has already been robbed and brainwashed.

Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College, explained that, in Canada, Christian pastors have been fined or censored for expressing socially conservative views on the air or even attempting to do so.

"I have experienced a lot of censorship and have also been censored by our government for not speaking with a politically correct tone," he said, emphasizing that the Canadian government monitors and censors sermons broadcast on television.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has won the annual Values Voter Summit straw poll for the second consecutive year, while retired neurosurgeon and best-selling author Ben Carson finished first in the polling for vice president.

But all that will be changed when Christ comes again. Evildoers will be judged; injustices will be made right; wars and conflicts will cease. The Bible says, "Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming" (2 Thessalonians 2:8).

Why, then, is Christ's coming delayed?

This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'

So what is the President, with Congressional cooperation, going to do? Well, promptly send some more weapons and equipment to ISIS. To be fair, the official line is that the weapons, equipment, and support are going to "moderate elements" among the Syrian rebels. But there is absolutely no way to guarantee that those new arms will not end up in ISIS' hands. None of the rebel factions in Syria or Iraq can be trusted. And ISIS is certainly capable of taking the stuff away from them, anyway. The advanced American equipment they're using now they took away from the Iraqi armed forces!

The Congress might as well have passed "The ISIS Weapons and Relief Act!"

Folks, we're in a pickle in that part of the world. By pulling our troops completely out of Iraq and allowing those rebel elements to regain momentum, power, and critical mass, we've virtually guaranteed that we'll have to put boots back on the ground to restore what we gained there through immense sacrifice of lives and treasure. "Pinpoint" airstrikes won't do the job completely.

Dreaming about Islam

Many are still caught up in the hope that Islam has been hijacked by a bunch of murderous extremists who misinterpret the Qur'an. Even the president of the United States recently insisted that:

"ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day."

Mr. Obama is dreaming, and he wants to share it.
