A couple of eye openers, I hope

he is starting to sound more and more like the rise of the reich. What about all these youth camps???

Obama's youth army plans

I was listening to this with Vic Eliason and Brannon Howse the other day who brought out more details that really got my hackles up regarding Obama and his (truly devious evil) plans. Plus this was the first I heard of Bush giving away the reins of the US economy to the E.U.

(???!)

So much for 'lesser of two evils' type voting. What is the point, if someone governs well in the War on Terror, then turns around and gives away national sovereignty!? Well, at least Bush put good judges on the Supreme Court! /sarcasm

This particular program really gave a good overview of the situation, plus touching on how the emerging mysticism creeping into the church is playing into it all and enabling it.

Then on Nov 21 Ken Silva and Ingrid Schlueter talked more in depth about emerging mysticism which was very good.

Folks, this stuff is more than likely creeping into your church even if it is a conservative church. There is just so much naivete out there, and when a good upstanding member brings it in, everyone is too nice to do anything definitive about it. So it doesn't get uprooted, and eventually it will bear its ungodly fruit.

Complete Lack of Discernment

My son (age 9), who attends a small LCMS private school, tells me that the kids voted for Obama in their mock election! He says he told at least one of his friends "don't you know Obama is OK with killing babies?"

My question for these Lutheran parents is, DON'T YOU SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THIS TO YOUR KIDS AT HOME???

I know you can't really say much from the pulpit about candidates specifically but... I dunno, all our kids (son 9, daughters 13 and 15) know that Obama is very dangerous to this country. And can even hold their own in a discussion with other kids their age. and McCain is at best the lesser of two evils.

sigh...I feel like I want to crawl into a hole and cry and not come out for... a long time.
:-\

Then we had yesterday our missionary to Congo as a guest preacher. He started by reading Psalm 42 from The Message. UGH. It was all about God bringing us Peace but no mention of how we can access that peace or even what KIND of peace it was. No mention of Jesus saying "I came not to bring peace, but a sword!" They are long time friends of our own pastor, whose sermons are actually pretty good and who doesn't rely on gimmicks and 'new fresh relevant translations' (cough cough cough) -- and we just recently complained about our youth pastor going to the National Youth Worker's Emergent Mysticism Convention. Oops... I mean National Youth Workers Convention. So in short order I'm thinking we will be labeled troublemakers... again.

BTW the deacons thanked us for our concern but said they would trust our youth pastor's discernment.

and there was a professionally printed flier that we always have in our bulletins with different little news stories and ideas. I think it was Focus on the Family or some other organization. One of the stories talked about having a football outreach. (rolling eyes).

And we have Sarah Palin the supposed Christian conservative now saying how she wants to work with Obama/Biden and create some sort of unity...

here:

in particular this part:

Palin said she hoped to work with President-elect Barack Obama and Vice Present-elect Joe Biden on energy policy....“So we’ll reach out to Barack Obama and to the people who he surrounds himself with,” she said “A united effort that we certainly will be making here in order to secure our nation and allow us to be more prosperous.”...“It says all good things about our country, and the progress that we have made and the barriers that have come down,” she said. “I couldn’t be more proud of where we are today, you know, this minority status now being kind of propelled to the forefront, that’s healthy. … This is an historic moment. Barack Obama has been elected president,” she said. “And God bless Barack Obama and his beautiful family and the new administration coming in. It is time that we all pulled together and worked together.”

WORK TOGETHER WITH OBAMA/BIDEN? THE ELECTION OF OBAMA SAYS GOOD THINGS ABOUT AMERICA?

Christians are so lacking in discernment, and so easily cowed. It makes me very sad.
