"But when Jesus heard this, He said, 'It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.'

But go and learn what this means: 'I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT SACRIFICE,' for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Matthew 9:12-13

It is a sad day in America, when secular organizations are begging and pleading with the people of God to aid in the fight against domestic violence. In their research, many agencies have found that church leaders turn a deaf ear to the scourge of domestic violence, and they are reluctant to acknowledge community resources whether they are private or funded by the government. 

Personally, I respect the Constitutional Separation of Church and State, for our government should not have the power to dictate how Americans should worship God, or how we should live our lives. Nor should they have any say as to whether a person chooses or not chooses to acknowledge the God of heaven. After all, even God has given man free will, so religion is a matter of ones own personal choice.


However, one thing that every American should and must acknowledge is the fact that a major crisis in our country will eventually affect each and every one of us in one way or another. Case in point, are we not all affected by the current economic crisis that is resounding around the world? Even the wealthy are re-evaluating their priorities as to what is important as far as frivolous spending is concerned. They are tightening their belts, selling their jewels, and cleaning out their closets. 

September 11th is another example of how a tragedy touched the lives of the American people as a whole. Many of us shed tears for people that we never met. There was sadness in our hearts even though we weren’t personally related to any of the victims. As a country, we have survived many catastrophes and hardships, and still managed to remain strong by God’s amazing Grace. We came together when Katrina wiped out homes and lives, dreams and comfort. Countless souls gave of their time and their own means to ease the suffering of strangers. Their mission was not one of compulsion, but from the heart. 


Listen well America, there is a new terror on the rise, and it is silently destroying the very fabric of our blessed country. It is a demon in its own making, and a destroyer of homes and families. Its poisonous tentacles have reached around the world, ensnaring the old, young, infirmed, religious, non-religious, male, female, even our beloved pets. This is a demon of old, one that was hidden behind closed doors, locked away in secrecy. It fed on hidden shame and silent suffering, growing more and more vicious with each passing day. 

God sees the whole, we see it in part, but we know it by its fruits. It produces angry children who no longer believe in hope; and they don’t care who they hurt of kill. These are the same angry children that will someday meet your sweet innocent offspring, and perhaps date or marry them. Sadly, they will bring to their relationships all the dysfunctional upbringing they learned in their homes, and mirror the violence of their parents. This evil-domestic violence will someday touch your lives. What will you do then? Will you still say that violence in the home is a private matter? Will you then join the ranks of the secret society of shame and suffering? Or will you take a stand now before domestic violence knocks on your door?


We live in a dark world that is growing darker each day. Thousands commit suicide each year as they see the hope of life growing dim. Our American homes are in trouble, and private turmoil has a direct effect on our public affairs. It was once said, “As the home goes, so goes the nation.” The chaos that we are witnessing in our society today is a result of the breaking down of our American homes. Dysfunction in our families produce lost, angry and vicious dead souls. They bring their fury to your door, kick it in, and boldly stick a gun in your face as you sleep in your own bed. 

The people of God have been given a charge to be the “lights of the world.” Christians have the Word of God that has the Power to make a difference in the lives of many. If we don’t allow the true light of the Gospel to shine, how will those who grope in darkness find their way out? Secular organizations should not have to knock on church doors for help; Christians should be leading the way to peace and love in our world. But something is dreadfully wrong isn’t it? The very people who claim to know “What thus saith the Lord” are the very ones that are neglecting to proclaim the Power of God, at least as it should be proclaimed.


It seems that the religious attitude of many is, “I got mine; you get yours.” And as long as evil doesn’t affect some Christians personally, they view many societal atrocities as “That’s their problem.” Or they will conclude, “They need Jesus!” Oh my God yes they do! But if we as Believers don’t show the world the way to Jesus, how will the lost know which way to go?  If our spiritual lights are dim, flickering, or have been snuffed out by the cares of life or indifference, what good is our witness? 

It is my sincere hope and prayer as I build this web site, and as you read what is written that spiritual change will truly come to America. But first, the church must come clean and get it right. We must first exit our own spiritual darkness before we can rekindle our spiritual flames, and loose the chains that bind those in the Satan’s prisons. And where does this spiritual rekindling begin? It begins in the pulpit.


"Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore."
Ezra 10:2

"Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us."
Abraham Lincoln

I love being an American, and living in such a great and wonderful country. But too often we see God being shoved aside, and the devil being welcomed with open arms. Our country is going through a very rough and trying time. Perhaps God is trying to show us that we aren't as self sufficient as we think we are. Our great country was built upon the principles of God's Word. What we need right now is a revival in this land. America needs to fall on her face and repent! And until we get back to the basics of allowing God to lead our lives, and acknowledging that He is ALL MIGHTY GOD, we will continue to witness and experience nationwide sorrow.
