 JBS CEO, Art Thompson speaking at nullification conf.

Some seem to worship the Constitution. We are Constitutionalists insofar as the Constitution is Biblical. Our rights come from God. He secures our rights, yet every generation must fight to preserve our God-given rights. 

Tom Woods is the New York Times bestselling author of eleven books, including Meltdown

and The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

A senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, he holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard and his master’s, M.Phil., and Ph.D. from Columbia University.
Through historical writings, case studies, and speeches by the Founding Fathers, Woods will give you a logical, moral, and constitutionally sound case for nullification, revealing:
  • How we can roll back Obamacare, cap and trade, and other unconstitutional expansions of federal power through nullification
  • Why the Founding Fathers believed that nullification was the “moderate middle ground”
  • Why the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution reserves to the states the power to nullify unconstitutional laws
  • Why states – not the Supreme Court – should arbitrate disputes between the states and the federal government over the constitutionality of the federal government’s actions. ~from Tom Woods Site

The law of God requires restitution.

These thieves regret:
getting caught
being charged with the crime
not spending the money faster
not being able to keep the money
fear of cops knocking at their door
not being aware of the video cameras

This is the way of an adulteress: she eats and wipes her mouth and says, "I have done no wrong." ~Prov. 30:20 ESV

True Beauty by Nick Jesch

The true beauty in view has little to do with hairstyle, makeup, clothing, and even less about controlling any of these details. A Father will impart truth to his Daughter to form her character as a godly woman. He will seek to protect and provide for her in ways that allow her to live in peace, secure in his, and in God's love. Once she is married, her Husband will continue in this work, as the Scripture says, "Washing her with the water of God's Word.” When her heart is at peace, and secure, she WILL radiate a beauty that comes from deep inside. No clothing or hairstyle can improve on that sort of beauty. Rather, her inward beauty of character and godliness will be shown in those outward details as well. Douglas Wilson is spot on in this declaration. I have seen the principle worked out in his own family, three generations now. He has also taught his sons to do the same, as well as many other men who have learned from his words and example.

Alcohol, Movies and Other Toxins by Geoff Botkin

From the article:
His name was Arthur Guinness. The setting was mid-18th-century Ireland. Arthur was a young Christian who was deeply concerned that alcohol consumption was killing his nation. Men, women, and even children of Ireland were poisoning themselves on a daily diet of whiskey and cheap gin— devoid of nutrition as well as toxic. The culture was disintegrating. The culture was not only addicted to alcohol, it was drowning in an addiction to drinking. Because of the pub culture, and what was being consumed there, the nation was experiencing death by starvation and death by poisoning, simultaneously.

Guinness grieved over this. According to one Irish author, “Guinness was once walking the streets of Ireland crying out to God, ‘God do something about the drunkenness on the streets of Ireland.’”

Do Christians need movies or alcohol? No. We are not on earth to amuse ourselves, or divert ourselves with those things that dull the senses. We are here to be as alert as we can be, to wage war with the sharpest attention to the needs and afflictions of the perishing. When entire cultures are enslaved to corrupt institutions and customs that can be overturned, or turned to Christ’s advantage, we must not flinch where we can set captives free. The question becomes “who needs us?” not “what do we need?” ~Geoff Botkin

Controversy for the sake of truth is a divine command. ~Walter Martin

Speaking the truth and 
defending scripture rightly divides, 
but it is heresy that is divisive.

Thomas Kinkade says, 
"People want a paradise around the bend, 
so I provide that paradise."

This is why he rarely puts people in his paintings.

Average gestation is 8 days after the "due date."

“A word of caution --don’t take the EDD [Estimated Date of Delivery] too seriously. The Mittendorf study showed the average length of human gestation to be forty-one weeks plus one day.”

--Elizabeth Davis, Heart & Hands; A Midwife’s Guide to Pregnancy and Birth

Unleashing Our Energy Resources

Interview with Dr. John Felmy

"...in the Santa Barbara area, because of all the natural [oil] seeps that you have, when you produce oil you actually reduce the amount of oil on the beaches. You are reducing the pressure, and you are reducing the natural seeps. If you ask folks who have been there a long time, they’ll tell you, “Yes, before oil production the beaches were a lot oilier.”

Johanna Michaelsen's Testimony about Preachers of Another Gospel

(Old Internet Photo of Johanna Michaelsen)

Johanna Michaelsen tells of her life in the occult.  Johanna worked for a psychic surgeon. They recited the Lord's prayer before diagnosing a health problem and performing surgery. She sees many occultic techniques she was trained in praised in the church today. ~Regina

Speech we heard is on 5/24/2011 is made available on sermon audio by Travis Wales.


She afterwards quoted universalist Billy Graham in the same boat with Rick Warren, Todd Bentley, Benny Hinn and many others.
Johanna explained that the occult can give people great talent as with Akiane, the child artist, who has visions of heaven and Jesus: 

Welcome to the Seppi Blog!: Akiane's Gallery

People into witchcraft can do great signs and wonders as the scripture says. These may be amazing, but not from God. Have you listened to Johanna's speech? This young artist sees lots of visions and paints them. Johanna doesn't think they are of God. 
The scripture says, "No eye has seen, nor ear heard nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has in store for those who love Him."
There is a lot of what looks like Christianity in witchcraft. Johanna was a medium, though she had committed her life to God and thought she was a Christian. ~Dinah

Ignorance Can Be A Sin

Ignorance hurts people in fundamental ways. Leviticus 5:18, “So the priest shall make atonement for him regarding his ignorance in which he erred and did not know it, and it shall be forgiven him.”

Congratulations Zachary & Sarah on the birth of Lydia.

Praise the Lord! His timing is perfect. As Mary said: "My soul magnifies the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior." Luke 1:46-7

Psalm 112:10

The wicked man sees it and is angry; he gnashes his teeth and melts away; the desire of the wicked will perish!

Are some vaccines more dangerous than others?

A vaccine maker reveals:
"A: Yes. The DPT shot, for example. The MMR. But some lots of a vaccine are more dangerous than other lots of the same vaccine. As far as I’m concerned, all vaccines are dangerous.
They involve the human immune system in a process that tends to compromise immunity. They can actually cause the disease they are supposed to prevent. They can cause other diseases than the ones they are supposed to prevent."

 Did you know in the 1970‘s more people died from the flu vaccine than from the illness? Ron Paul and Larry McDonald, the only two doctors in the house voted against the government vaccine.

San Francisco Considers Ban on Circumcision

San Francisco Considers Ban on Circumcision

from the article:
"...The movement rearing its head in San Francisco is part of a larger campaign throughout the United States and Europe attempting to criminalize the practice of circumcision. While there is ample medical evidence that circumcision is linked to lower rates of penile cancer, thrush infections, balanitis (inflammation of the glans), posthitis and phimosis (two other severe inflammatory conditions), sexual dysfunction, and a reduction in HIV/AIDS and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV, which is linked to sexually-transmitted cervical cancer) transmission rates (in African and other developing societies) as well as improved hygiene, anti-circumcision activists argue that the circumcision of minors ought to be outlawed because a child cannot make a conscious decision as to whether or not they can consent to such a procedure."

"The anti-circumcision movement also has strong roots in Soviet tyranny. Circumcision for religious purposes was banned in the Soviet Union in 1924, just as is currently being proposed in San Francisco. In their effort to obliterate all traditional religious observance, the Soviet NKVD (and later, the KGB), would arrest and put on trial those religious Jews who chose to have their sons circumcised on the eighth day after birth, in accordance with the Jewish understanding of Genesis 17: 9-14, where Abraham was commanded by God to circumcise himself, his son Ishmael, and the men of Israel. The Soviets, of course, also outlawed infant baptism, which, like circumcision, is a religious initiatory ritual, on the grounds that it is “abusive” for parents to “impose” their religious beliefs on their non-consenting children. Under these extreme totalitarian “nanny state” conditions, those who practiced circumcision were subject to torture and forced labor in the Siberian gulags, just as under the San Francisco ballot proposal, parents who choose to practice their faith would be subject to years of imprisonment, loss of their children to the clutches of the state, and/or heavy fines."

What are the common sins of Parents?

1. Negligence in not instructing their Children early in life. 
2. Not correcting them till it be too late: or doing it with bitterness, without Compassion, Instruction, and Prayer. 
3. Giving them ill example. 
4. Neglect of bringing them up in some lawful Calling. 
5. Not bestowing them timely, and religiously in Marriage. 
6. Light behavior before them, and too much familiarity with them; whereby they become vile in their eyes. 
7. Loving beauty, or any outward parts, more than God's Image in them. 
~Archbishop James Ussher
