Viewer request: “Yellow dog” Christians?

Were it not for the support of evangelicals and other conservative Christians, McCain would have been more soundly defeated. Do Christians vote blindly for Republicans? Laurence Vance thinks so. Read his article, “McChristians,” here, and voice your opinion.

Bible Prophecy and the End Times

Bible prophecy speaks of the end of civilization on earth as we know it, and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Some feel that the election of Barack Obama, the return of Israel in 1948, famines, godlessness, recent severe hurricanes/cyclones and earthquakes, and other events are all indicative of the end.

Very good End Times study:


End Times chart:

There are many other Internet sites that discuss the End Times – merely search for “Bible and End Times Prophecy” to locate them.

What’s your opinion? Are we near the end?

Rick Warren’s McCain/Obama interviews

Saturday night saw the first of the two candidates “interviews” within the bounds of a religious forum. The event, conducted by Rev. Rick Warren of Saddleback Church, California, exposed a sharp contrast in the candidates’ styles and positions. What were your impressions of the two?

Viewer comment: Is Obama the Anti-Christ?

This will make you re-think : A Trivia question in Sunday School :
How long is the beast allowed to have authority in Revelations ?

Guess the Answer?

Revelations Chapter 13 tells us it is 42 months, and you know what that is.
Almost a four-year term to a Presidency.

All I can say is Lord Have Mercy on us.!!!!!!
According to The Book of Revelations the anti-Christ is: The anti-Christ will
be a man, in his 40’s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with
persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal….the prophecy says
that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace,
and when he is in power, will destroy everything ..

Is it OBAMA??
I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to post this as many times as
you can!  Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet…do it!
I refuse to take a chance on this unknown candidate who came out of nowhere.

Even China has problems with Islam

A Chinese Islamic group is threatening to bomb and otherwise disrupt the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. The “Turkistan Islamic Party” recently attacked and killed 16 policemen in the province of Xinjiang, and is making plans to place explosives on trains, planes, and buses. Has the time come for the world to recognize the threat that Islam, described by some former Muslims as archaic and barbaric, poses to the civilized world? Has the time come for “non-violent” Muslims to disavow the actions of those of their religion who will not live peacefully with their non-Muslim neighbors? What’s your opinion?

Out-of-wedlock pregnancies in Vicksburg

A front-page article in Sunday’s Post discussed the increasing rate of teen pregnancies in Vicksburg. Pregnancy at this tender age imposes social and financial pressures not only on the mother, but on her family and on taxpayers. If the baby is lucky enough to have a supportive father, the load is more equally shared, and the child stands a better chance of being raised in a “normal” environment.


There was a time when out-of-wedlock pregnancies, teen or otherwise, were regarded as dishonorable, and the mothers-to-be were whisked away to parts unknown. No longer, however, is that the case, with out-of-wedlock births outnumbering those occurring in marriage. The toll on the unwed mothers and on society in general is tremendous. Too many times, the grandparents are saddled with raising the children, and tax dollars are required for the child’s upbringing.


What is your view regarding the ongoing trend toward pregnancy outside of marriage? If you agree that unwed mothers present a serious societal issue, what would you do to prevent these pregnancies? What would you require of the fathers? What does the acceptance by Americans of pregnancies outside of marriage say about the American people?

Islam: Victorious through terror

For centuries Muslim men have followed Muhammad’s specific “revelation” instructions on how and when to fight, loot, pillage, plunder, rape, torture and murder in order to further the interests of Islam and their own personal wealth in the form of “plunder.” Muhammad himself had many people murdered, many killed while they slept. There were no trials, no judgments, no dialog. If you insulted Muhammad, if you doubted his credibility and if you spoke out, you were murdered. Here is a sampling of murders committed upon Muhammad’s requests or efforts:

1) Ibn Sunayna, a Jewish man who was murdered because he was simply a Jew
2) Abu Afak, a 120-year-old man, murdered while he slept
3) Asma Marwan, mother of 5 children, murdered while she slept
4) A slave woman, mother of two children, murdered while she slept
5) A one-eyed shepherd, murdered while he slept
6) A very old woman, literally ripped in half by Muslims who captured her on a raid.
7) A slave girl, who was murdered because she poked fun at Muhammad.


By any unbiased definition, Muhammad was a terrorist. In fact, he purportedly stated, “I have been victorious through terror.” He taught that Muslims are to murder those who have left Islam “wherever you find them.” He recited a revelation declaring that Christ was not the Son of God, another instructing Muslims that it was their heavenly duty to fight and kill Christians and Jews wherever they could be found.


Muslims who commit murder in the name of Muhammad were told they were doing God’s service and would be rewarded. God would compensate the martyr for sacrificing his life by giving him virgins and everlasting happiness: Each time he sleeps with a houri (angelic-like female) he finds her virgin. The penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one will marry seventy houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetising vaginas.


Women are treated severely (terrorized) under Muhammad’s guidance. When a Moslem female turns 7 years old, she is segregated from all males in and out of her extended family. At 9 years old, she must begin adhering to Islamic laws because she is considered an adult and eligible for marriage. Muhammad contracted for his wife Aisha when she was 7 (he was 51) and consummated the marriage when she was 9. If a Muslim woman gets sick, she is required to be treated by female doctors. If none are available, she must be examined through some sort of divider or go without treatment. Women are required to pray at home in many Islamic countries because females are not allowed in mosques. Among the countries which allow women in mosques, the women are banished to basement rooms or other segregated spaces. Women living under Islamic laws are not allowed to work, travel, go to college, join organizations, or visit friends and relatives without the permission of their father or husband. They can be legally jailed or executed for violations of Islamic laws, depending upon the seriousness the infraction. Quranic verse 24:31 warns Muslim women not to make eye contact or allow any part of their skin or jewelry to be seen by strangers, “and tell the believing women to lower their gaze and protect themselves from illegal sexual acts, and not show off their adornment to men and boys.” As a result of this verse, if an adult girl (9 years and older) is raped by an adult man, she will be considered at fault because she was careless and provoked the attack. Her parents will be expected to severely punish or kill her for dishonoring her family. Quranic verse 4:34 instructs Muslim men to “admonish” and “beat” their wives if they become “rebellious” and that “men are the managers of the affairs of women because Allah has preferred men over women and women were expended of their Rights.” In an Islamic court of law, it takes the testimony of two women to override the testimony of one man. Muslim women are not allowed equal right to their inheritance because they are only worth half of a man’s share. In most Islamic countries, women are not allowed to vote and are certainly not allowed to be elected to public office. According to Islam, most women are inherently evil and their ultimate destiny is Hell fire. Muhammad explained about one of his visions, “. . . I stood at the gate of the Fire [Hell] and saw that the majority of those who entered it were women.” If a Muslim woman protests any of her treatment, she is reminded that “her husband can divorce her simply by repeating “I divorce you” three times and that her prayers and devotions will not be accepted by God and curses of heaven and earth will fall upon her if she continues to rebel.

The attack on Christianity

With the media and many celebrities expressing or promoting organizations or individuals with anti-Christian views, Christians have been on the defensive for several years. Vicksburg is home to Christians of many different denominations, and although there has apparently been little such defamation here, our churches may be experiencing what appears to be a national trend – a reduction in the numbers of people attending church. Comment from those closely involved with church affairs would be appreciated.

    The following was received by VS in the form of a request for input from you. Mr. Slade’s email is copied in its entirety for your perusal:

    My name is George Slade, and I first want to say that I love this forum.
    My topic is this. Myself and another brother in Christ are the founding members of an up start ministry that wants to out reach and give as much back as possible to the community and the people of Jesus Christ.
    What I want to know is this, what are the pressing needs of the less fortunate in our city of Vicksburg? What do you think would be the most worthwhile cause in this town for which to raise funds? We want to God’s work through the people, so I’m asking you, the people, what work needs to be done.
    All suggestions are welcomed, and you can reach us on the web a or simply leave your comments to suggest a worthy cause. We plan on doing some exciting fund raisers very soon, and we want to make sure we are helping as many souls as possible in the name of Jesus Christ.
