  • Frightfully and Wonderfully Made

    by Larry Spargimino

    Claire Green, formerly Dylan, is trying to find love but gets rejected by straight men for having "male parts." Claire Green, formerly Dylan, is trying to find love but gets rejected by straight men for having "male parts."

    In Psalm 139:14 the psalmist says: “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Some might want to change it: “I will praise thee; for I am frightfully and wonderfully made.”

    One of the truths of the Bible is that God loves us just as we are. He calls us to faith and repentance, but He loves us as we are.

    Evidently, transgenders don’t believe that. They are dissatisfied with the way they are made. They want to improve on God’s design. After the so-called improvement, they look like they can say: “I am frightfully and wonderfully made.”

  • The Trump Factor

    by Larry Spargimino

    Donald Trump Presidential candidate Donald Trump

    When Ted Cruz and John Kasich pulled out of the presidential race, they left voters one step closer to having to choose between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in November. What are the implications of that?

    George Barna, one of the most prominent pollsters whose work is to focus on the religious beliefs and behaviors of Americans, explained that despite media reports suggesting Trump is winning over evangelical voters to support him, many evangelicals are not backing Trump.

    Since the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, the Taliban has escalated attacks. A new level of mayhem has been reached as the bloodbath grows more serious every day. However some—even women—are fighting back.

    Henry Austin, for DailyMail.com, writes that a grieving Afghan mother takes revenge for the death of her son by killing 25 militants during a seven-hour battle. Her son was killed while manning a checkpoint.

    The mother, Reza Gul, flanked by her daughter and daughter-in-law, led a counterstrike. “I couldn’t stop myself and picked up a weapon,” Gul told reporters. “I went to the checkpoint and began shooting back.” Her daughter-in-law, Seema, added: “The fighting was intensified when we reached the battlefield. …We were committed to fight until the last bullet.”'

  • Supreme Leader Predicts Israel’s Demise

    The Israeli Declaration of Independence, also known as the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel, was proclaimed on May 14, 1948, by David Ben Gurion.

    The possibility of Jewish homeland in Palestine had been a goal of Zionist organizations since the late 19th century. The British foreign secretary stated in the Balfour Declaration of 1917: “His Majesty’s government views with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object.”

    However, not everyone has been happy with these developments. In fact, the Jewish State has been under attack verbally, as well as militarily, since its establishment in 1948. Recently, Iran’s supreme leader predicted that Israel would not exist in 25 years.

  • Kim Davis, Martin Luther King, and Civil Disobedience

    by Larry Spargimino

    Christians in America generally have had leaders with basic moral values that make it possible to be law-abiding and not compromise biblical standards.

    We have been a nation of leaders from many different denominational backgrounds, and various religious affiliations. How wonderful to see such unity amongst such diversity. Basic moral values have always been maintained. That, however, is no longer the case.

    Therefore a question of supreme importance is: Should Christians ever disobey their government? Some would reply in the negative, but Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was arrested for not complying with a federal judge to issue same-sex marriage licenses, sides with Martin Luther King and believes that civil disobedience is justified.

  • Planned Parenthood Clergy: "Abortion Is God's Work"

    by Larry Spargimino

    Planned Parenthood logoWhen the Word of God is forgotten or distorted, all kinds of mischief will follow. Psalm 11: 3 states: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

    Such corruption is even evident today among some members of the clergy.

    Planned Parenthood has a Clergy Advocacy Board. What do they believe about Planned Parenthood and its employees? They believe Planned Parenthood employees are doing “God’s work.”

    Bethany Blankley reports that the Clergy Advocacy Board affirms that faith in God demands that those marginalized by poverty and other oppressions—regardless of income, race, or religion—have access to safe, affordable, high-quality health care—which should include abortion.

  • America’s Future Doctors—Stressed Out

    by Larry Spargimino

    Tired doctors

    A report in Time magazine for September of 2015 opens with these words:

    “America’s future doctors look tired tonight. Sixteen medical students, most of them in their third year, sit slumped on the lab-room chairs at Stanford Hospital. Short white coats and stethoscopes are stashed near the eyewash station. Nearly all of them have a coffee cup in front of them. They’ve been here for 13 hours. …”

  • Stoking the Fires of Race Hatred

    by Larry Spargimino

    Racism, no matter who promotes it, is an egregious sin of enormous proportions. Is it possible that it has exploded into unprecedented violence in recent days because someone has been stoking the fires?

    In an article published on World Net Daily, we read:

    Vester Lee Flanagan II, whose professional name was “Bryce Williams,” was a disgruntled former employee of WDBJ7, a TV station in Roanoke, Va. Vester Lee Flanagan II, whose professional name was “Bryce Williams,” was a disgruntled former employee of WDBJ7, a TV station in Roanoke, Va.

    “Vester Flanagan II, a.k.a. ‘Bryce Williams,’ a disgruntled former employee of WDBJ, a Roanoke, Virginia, CBS affiliate, gunned down Alison Parker and Adam Ward, and wounded another woman during an attack Wednesday.

    “Flanagan had been warned he’d be fired if he didn’t curb his angry outbursts. Finally, several years ago, the inevitable happened. Jeffrey Marks, general manager of WDBJ, recalled, ‘Eventually after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore, we dismissed him. He did not take that well.’ …

  • ISIS and a Theology of Rape

    A recent report in the New York Times, titled “ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape: Claiming the Quran’s support, the Islamic State codifies sex slavery in conquered regions of Iraq and Syria and uses the practice as a recruiting tool,” we read the following:

    “In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her—it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted. He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer. … When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion.”

  • Heated Rhetoric from Vicious People

    by Larry Spargimino

    The Times of Israel reports that a senior Iranian official said Israel “should be annihilated.” The official said the thawing relations with the West would not translate into a shift in Tehran’s position concerning the Jewish state.

    Hussein Sheikoholeslam, a foreign affairs adviser to parliament speaker Ali Larijani, told Iranian media that things have not changed regarding the “Zionist entity.” He said, “Our positions against the usurper Zionist regime have not changed at all; Israel should be annihilated and this is our ultimate slogan.”

    The British Foreign Secretary had made some remarks a few days ago that indicated a thaw in relations suggesting that Iranian president Hassan Rouhani had indicated a “more nuanced approach to Israel’s existence,” but Sheikholeslam strongly disputed that.
