Sandy Bland’s family files a federal lawsuit because they believe she would not have taken her life

I watched this clip and i was struck by what the mother of Sandy Bland said about her daughter. She said her daughter knew enough about Jesus not to take her life. The Question is don’t Christians also have doubts and fears? Is Jesus enough? Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

Franklin Graham and Wells Fargo part ways over 2 mommies commerical


From Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:
Have you ever asked yourself–how can we fight the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big business, the media, and the gay & lesbian community? Every day it is something else! Tiffany’s started advertising wedding rings for gay couples. Wells Fargo bank is using a same-sex couple in their advertising. And there are more. But it has dawned on me that we don’t have to do business with them. At the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, we are moving our accounts from Wells Fargo to another bank. And guess what—we don’t have to shop at Tiffany & Co., there are plenty of other jewelry stores. This is one way we as Christians can speak out—we have the power of choice. Let’s just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against Almighty God’s laws and His standards. Maybe if enough of us do this, it will get their attention. Share this if you agree.
What is Graham saying? He disagrees with the Wells Fargo bank’s stance on same sex relationships. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Franklin is a fundamentalist, strict construction Christian and it should come as no surprise that he would encourage his followers to follow his lead. This morning Whoopi Goldberg of The View took aim at Graham and she went as far as to question his Christianity. She has a right to her opinion just like Graham, but is it possible to disagree without the anger. It is possible to live in a world that respects everyone’s opinion not just the ones that agree with yours. Is this possible or does this thinking only exist in Utopia?

Christians versus Church Folks don’t be deceived they are not the same

I wrote this 4 years ago but it is still so relevant:

I love Christians, but I can’t stand Church folks. Some will ask what’s the difference? Well here’s a list:

Church folks tear down other members.

Christians build up everyone they meet.

Church folks act like they are happy for your successes.

Christians really are actually happy for your success.

Church folks are extremely critical.

Christians will give correction, but they will always do it in love.

Church folks will give big so they can be viewed as big shots.

Christians cheerfully give what they have no matter how much it is.

Church folks worry and fret about what they wear to church.

Christians realize what is in the inside is more important than what is on the outside.

Church folks have a need to be seen doing good things.

Christians simply do good things

Church folks will come and see you when you are sick and tell everybody they did it.

Christians will come and see you, bring you a meal, and clean your house and not tell a soul.

Church folks say they love everybody.

Christians actually show love for everybody.

This is far from an inclusive list. Feel free to add to the list via the comment section.

Franklin Graham protests University of Maryland cancelling “American Sniper” because Muslim students complained

FRANKLIN GRAHAM’S FACEBOOK POST
Can you believe that the University of Maryland canceled a screening of the movie American Sniper after Muslim students complained? This afternoon, I’m going to meet with wounded military veterans and their spouses who served this nation with honor–fighting to preserve our freedoms and many times shedding their own blood. Chris Kyle was an American hero. It’s brave soldiers like these that make all of the freedoms we enjoy possible. Shame on the University of Maryland for listening to these voices! If these Muslim students can’t support the military members who do their job to protect us, let them leave America and go to a Muslim country. God bless America and our heroes! SHARE this if you agree.

I read the post above and I was struck by the venomous tone. Schools are a melting pot of races and nationalities and schools have to be sensitive to diverse communities. Muslim students complained to officials at the University of Maryland about American Sniper. Graham said if they don’t like it they need to go to a Muslim country. Well if this is where they were born they don’t need to leave their own country. There are movies that some groups applaud and others are offended by that same film and their feelings should be considered and not dismissed, and not told to take a hike.

Easter Deception? Movie ‘Heaven is for Real’ — Not True — Unbiblical

Contact: Steve Wohlberg, White Horse Media, 559-977-9744, steve@whitehorsemedia.com

MEDIA ADVISORY, April 17, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — The real-life story behind ‘Heaven is for Real’ seems so encouraging. 4-year-old Colton Burpo, during emergency surgery in 2003, has a near-death experience, exits his body, visits heaven, sees Jesus, angels, and deceased relatives (including a dead sister), and lives to tell about it. His father, Pastor Todd Burpo, turned his family’s drama into a New York Times bestseller in 2008. Widely considered by Christians as an evangelistic opportunity, the film version hit theaters April 16, four days before Easter. “There’s one major problem,” counters Bible expert, television producer, and author of 30+ books, Steve Wohlberg. “Neither the Old or New Testaments teach anywhere that our dead relatives are floating around in heaven waiting to talk to us. Instead, they ‘sleep’ (1 Cor. 15:51)quietly in their graves awaiting ‘the resurrection at the last day’ (John 11:25).” Consider these biblical facts: In John 14:1-3, Jesus plainly informed His followers that they would be with Him when He “comes again.” In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Paul also encouraged Christians that they would “be with the Lord forever” when He returns to raise the dead. Not only that, but the notion of dialoguing with the deceased is a practice strictly forbidden in Scripture (see Duet. 18:11). It’s called “necromancy,” and is connected to mediums and spiritists. But this happened to a 4-year-old child! you may be thinking. Read Mark 9:14-29. Unfortunately, our enemy aims dark arrows at children too. Steve Wohlberg is the Speaker/Director of White Horse Media (Newport, WA) and the host of His Voice Today radio and television broadcasts. Widely regarded by media as an apocalyptic expert, he has been featured in three History Channel documentaries (Secrets of the Seven Seals; Strange Rituals: Apocalypse; Armageddon Battle Plan), and has spoken by special invitation inside the Pentagon and U.S. Senate. His enlightening books, Solving the Mystery of Death (Remnant Publications), and Demons in Disguise: The Dangers of Talking to the Dead, explore these subjects fully. His website is http://www.HisVoiceToday.com. A committed husband and father of two young children, Mr. Wohlberg welcomes all opportunities to discuss this sensitive issue. To schedule an interview, he may be contacted at 559-977-9744 (mobile) or by email at steve@whitehorsemedia.com.
