PRAYER OF BELIEF
Dear Jesus, I believe that you died for my sins, and you died on the cross and rose again. FORGIVE me all my sins. Come in to my heart, take charge of my life and make me the person YOU want me to be. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Cleanse me with your precious blood. I confess you now as my LORD and SAVIOR. In Jesus name. Amen

…  …  …  …  …

Frozen tears tells you my life story, a life of abuse and violence that followed me from the Middle East to Canada. My children and I were victims of relentless verbal and emotional abuse as well as physical and sexual violence, but not anymore. I was threatened with death but chose to risk my life to protect my children. Despite the horrific torture and abuse I faced for so many years – even in Canada – God was watching over me. Through a remarkable set of events, once I had gained the courage to seek help, God delivered me from domestic slavery to salvation in God….. By Lina Aziz, Canada….. http://frozentears.net/

Pray for Muslims during Ramadan

Are you praying for Muslims during the 2012 Ramadan season?   It is going on now.

English: Faithful praying towards Makkah; Umay...

Praying towards Makkah

Go to the 30 day site to find out about this great effort.  God is working in the Muslim world whether we are aware or not.

Listen to Dr. Jerry Rankin on the subject:

Testimonies are abundant of those who have dreams and visions of Jesus appearing to them and saying, “Follow Me.” Others will be impressed to find someone with “the book” that tells the way to eternal life. None of these revelations are sufficient for salvation, but they break down the barriers in their heart, they lead to an inquisitiveness to find out who Jesus is or to know what the Bible says. Certainly, many may not be sincere in their observing the fast and saying perfunctory prayers, but many are. Read more of this post

This is a reblog on a post from 2011. Enjoy.

Here’s a different twist or take on the American secular lifestyle.  Why didn’t Christians initiate this?

For many women of faith on college campuses, not only is such behavior a direct violation of their faith, it is the degradation of women, plain and simple. Not only areCatholic and Muslim women increasingly sharing the experience of rejecting the college culture of sexual excess, but they find common ground in the empowerment that chastity offers as an alternative. So while Muslim and Catholic women may say different prayers each night as they prepare for bed, they are united in relishing that their bed (and their dignity) is theirs and theirs alone.

Look at these stats–sickening!  I’m not holier than thou,  I just know these stats represent some messed up lives, men and women both.

Statistics show that as many as 78 percent of women will engage in a hook-up at some point during their college tenure, 14 percent of whom will rely on a friend to tell them what happened the next day, 49 percent of whom will never see the partner again, and 16 percent of whom felt pressured into the sexual encounter. In a given year, roughly 97,000 cases of college campus sexual assault or date rape related to binge drinking are reported. Another 100,000 college students annually report being too drunk to know if they consented to having sex.

Arab Spring is Actually Islamic Tsunami

A green version of http://commons.wikimedia.or...

According to one David Ruben, what we are seeing in the middle east is a Tsunami.  Watch out Christians!  Watch out Israel!!

“The ‘Arab Spring’ was never an Arab spring; it was always an Islamic tsunami,” he contends. “You look at Egypt today and you see that the Christians of Egypt are terrified. There were rumors that the Christians in Egypt were going to be building — horror of horrors — a church, and the Muslims went absolutely berserk. They started rioting and threatening the Christians and attacking them in the streets. And eventually, the Egyptian military government sent in the army and the Egyptian police, and they mowed down protesters and killed 24 Christians.”

And now it is more grime for the Coptics in Egypt.

Egypt’s military rulers blamed Christian protesters and “enemies of the revolution” on Wednesday for triggering the clashes that left 26 dead, almost all of them Christians. The accusation was sure to inflame the fury within and beyond the Christian community over the worst violence since President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.

At a lengthy news conference to present their version of the events, generals from the Supreme Council of Armed Forces showed footage of priests and a Coptic Christian activist they accused of instigating the violence on Sunday night with calls for demonstrations and storming the state television building. He accused protesters of “savage” attacks on the military.

Many of those killed were crushed when armored military vehicles sped through crowds of protesters and ran them over. Other victims had gunshot wounds. The clashes outside the state television building were the worst between the military and protesters in the eight months since Egypt’s uprising and has put the ruling generals on the spot.

Political Correctness in Europe

Picture Eva Herman

Ms. Herman

If you think political correctness is a problem in America. Take a look at Germany.

See the story here.

COLOGNE, Germany — America has plenty of political correctness, but nothing like Germany, where political correctness has ruled the culture.

But there are signs things are changing.

Eva Herman was once Germany’s face on the nightly news. She was voted Germany’s favorite television news anchor in 2003.

But her life and her career took a dramatic turn with the birth of her first child, when she discovered the joy of motherhood.

“I was a typical career woman,” Herman said. “I had a baby pretty late in my 30s, and it really changed my perspective on life and turned my world upside down.”

She decided to write about the importance of motherhood. With her books “The Eva Principle” and “The Noah’s Ark Principle,” she became a champion of family values and stay-at-home moms.

That made her a target of Germany’s feminists and politically correct media, which began attacking Herman mercilessly.

“A journalist reported that I had praised the Nazis. It wasn’t true. I have denounced the Nazis,” she told CBN News.

“But the German papers were happy to publish this false accusation, because they didn’t like me,” she said. “And I was fired from my job.”

Virtually all of the Western nations have to deal with some political correctness, but it has been a powerful force in Germany. Publicly expressing the wrong opinion about sex, gender, climate change, or Muslim immigration could get you in trouble.

Substitute Religion?

When it comes to climate change, the German government has jumped on the band wagon, even telling Germans to eat less meat to save the planet.

“When Climategate started, the media actually didn’t write anything about it. I mean, if you didn’t read English, you didn’t know about it,” Wolfgang Müller, an economist at the Institute for Free Enterprise in Berlin, said.

Müller said the environment has acted as a substitute religion.

“The Germans are not very religious. And it is a serious statement if you say that our environmentalism is a substitute for religion. I think one can support this in academic study. I’m serious,” Müller told CBN News.

Muslim Immigration

Publicly criticizing Islamic immigration has also been risky.  When Thilo Sarrazin of Germany’s central bank, wrote a book last year about the dangers of unchecked Muslim immigration, the book became a bestseller, but Sarrazin lost his job.

As is the case across Europe, opponents of Islamic immigration are often labeled “racists” and “fascists” by the German Left, especially those who are bold enough to say that Christian civilization is superior to Islam.

In September, the German government began debating whether to put opponents of Islamization, which they label “Islamophobes,” underpolice surveillance.

When American Islamic expert Robert Spencer and others tried to hold a rally this year in Stuttgart for human rights and against the spread of Muslim Sharia law in Germany, he and others on stage were physically threatened by the left.

Their photos were also posted on a website that encouraged Germans to attack them.

The ’68ers’

Germany today is ruled by baby boomers, a generation they call the “68ers.” These former hippies initiated a cultural revolution in Germany in the name of more freedom.

But it also brought intolerance.

Monika Ebeling was an equal rights officer who decided men’s rights were as important as women’s rights. She started working to help men in divorce cases.

Because of it, she was removed from her job.

“I did nothing wrong. But it is not politically correct in Germany to help men as well as women,” she explained.

“And this was the reason I was fired. They said they did not want a man’s rights officer, but a women’s rights officer,” she said.

Ebeling became a lightning rod for Germany’s feminists, who believe men are a problem. In her next job, she became a kindergarten principal, and they tried to get her fired again.

“The feminists try to tell us that men have more rights. But its not true. We’ve reversed the situation where woman now have more rights than men,” she said.

Changing Debate

But the casualties of political correctness – the Germans who have seen their careers ruined – have helped gradually change the debate in Germany.

Polls show fewer and fewer Germans now believe climate change is a serious problem.

And topics like Muslim immigration and feminism are being vigorously debated. The 68ers are aging and passing from the scene.

Herman said Germany is already changing

“The 68ers are gradually leaving their positions. Those succeeding them are more ambivalent,” she explained.

“Many of the young people oppose them and, above all, the people in this country for whom faith is important, are raising their voices again,” she said.
