Great Family Reunion Day
Ninty-three years ago Mary Bailey Stoops was born the 15th of 16 children and the 10th girl in the family. Mother remembers the names of all her grandchildren because she prays for them. All of her seven children were present with their spouses. Grandchildren and great-grandchildren are too spread out to all be present.
Dustin  took the  photos of all relatives together.

Free Will?

Since man has a free will and God has a FREE WILL, whose will is more powerful? Where did this idea come from that man isn'’t depraved and can save himself? The Scripture describes the regeneration of God'’s elect as God putting dry bones together, putting flesh and skin on them and breathing into them the breath of life. (Eze. 37)

Of the wicked: "The Lord has made all for Himself, Yes, even the wicked for the day of doom." (Pro. 16:4) "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, Lest they should see with their eyes, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them." (John 12:40)

The God who created all things, sovereignly decrees all things, without sin, for the good of His elect and the glory of His Name. 

Romans 9:15-25 says,"I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." It does not, therefore, depend on man'’s desire or effort, but on God'’s mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: "I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth."
Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.
One of you will say to me: "Then why does God still blame us? For who resists his will?" But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?' Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?
What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath--prepared for destruction? What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory--even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?
As He says in Hosea: "I will call them 'my people' who are not my people; and I will call her 'my loved one' who is not my loved one."

The scriptures say that Pharaoh hardened his heart, and says that God hardened Pharaoh's heart. Man's free will is in bondage to sin.

Appeal to Governor to Veto Gun Control Bills by Peter Bringe

John Hickenlooper, Governor 
136 State Capitol 
Denver, CO 80203-1792 

Dear Governor, 

I understand that there are certain bills, such as, HB13–1229 and HB13–1224, coming before you to be signed which concern gun regulation. I respectfully urge you to veto these bills. As a citizen of Colorado, I am concerned with the declining freedoms and rights in our state. As a 19 year old, I am concerned with the direction of the future. Particularly in the area of gun regulation, it grieves me to see my neighbors and friends restricted in their ability to defend themselves against law-breakers. 

A gun is a tool. It can be used wrongly to unlawfully hurt and kill people, but it can also be used to save people. Instead of criminalizing certain guns or certain gun sales, I hope my government will punish the real crimes of murder, theft, etc... The tool is not evil, the action is. To punish that which is not evil is unjust. 

Abortion Dr. Kemit Gosnell

"Former employees offering graphic testimony on the gruesome deaths of a young woman and more than 100 just-born infants. Assistants said the babies were effectively decapitated after the doctor snipped their spines with scissors. One assistant said a newly delivered baby was “big enough to walk around with me or walk around to the bus stop.” Another employee said she heard a baby “screaming” after it was born alive after a botched abortion attempt."

Abraham Lincoln: Emancipator or Traitor

Lincoln said he would throw the Constitution overboard. He was the first to have high level Communists in his cabinet, like Charles A. Dana (a comrade of Karl Marx).  Lincoln carried out plans from the Communist Manifesto.

New American article by John J. Dwyer:
Abraham Lincoln, Stepfather of Our Country

After the revolutions in Europe, Marxist revolutionaries fled to America where they enlisted in Lincoln's war to nationalize Government. Lincoln nationalized the banks, railroad and education.  He was the first to jump squarely into public education in 1862 to indoctrinate all children. Lincoln gave us the first heavy progressive income tax.

We highly recommend

Romeike Family Facing Deportation

Sign the Romeike petition!

The Romeike Family--fleeing persecution in Germany for homeschooling--was granted asylum in the US in 2010. Now, they're facing deportation back to Germany, who persecutes homeschoolers with fines, criminal prosecution, and forcible removal of children from their families. 

April 9th update: The 100,000 signature goal has been reached, praise be to God. Please join us in praying that the government officials will "kiss the Son," and submit to Him.

Mercy's Baptism on Easter Sunday

Baptism is a sign of the covenant,
