Enough is enough. Christians from all Denominations and across all walks of life are coming together to oppose the progressive legislation that attacks human life, the week and vulnerable, and the family.
Christians, when they have lived up to the highest ideals of their faith, have defended the weak and vulnerable and worked tirelessly to protect and strengthen vital institutions of civil society, beginning with the family.
They call this the “Manhattan Project” because Christian leaders met in Manhattan to discuss and begin this. Essentially, it calls us to civil disobedience if that is need be. It says –
“We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are:
1.the sanctity of human life
2.the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife
3.the rights of conscience and religious liberty.
Inasmuch as these truths are foundational to human dignity and the well-being of society, they are inviolable and non-negotiable. Because they are increasingly under assault from powerful forces in our culture, we are compelled today to speak out forcefully in their defense, and to commit ourselves to honoring them fully no matter what pressures are brought upon us and our institutions to abandon or compromise them. We make this commitment not as partisans of any political group but as followers of Jesus Christ, the crucified and risen Lord, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

They can’t touch her – no matter how hard they try.
Governor Sarah Palin’s home church in Wasilla, Alaska suffered about 1$ million in damage from a fire about 10 pm Friday night. The fire chief has reported that the fire was “definitely suspicious.” Fortunately, none of the ten people inside, including two children, were injured.
Wow. The anger directed at Sarah Palin during the campaign was totally out of control – and it seems that many still haven’t gotten over it.
What’s amazing was all the accusations made by those on the left about how horrid the right was going to be toward Obama. Everyone on the left warned how the right was going to hurt him. But it was Sarah that was the recipient of the greater vicious attacks – and it was due to her Christian world view. Apparently, a lot more people hate Christians than hate people of a different heritage.
But Sarah is said to have faith in “the scriptural passage that what was intended for evil will in some way be used for good.”
Her Pastor, Larry Kroon, also told KTUU TV that he’s “had a lot worst calls at night. When one of your parishioners dies or loses a child, it’s a whole different thing than the building’s on fire.”
They can’t touch her and they can’t touch her church. The Palins and the Wasilla Bible Church are above what ever those that hate them try to do. That’s because they have Jesus in their hearts. They are doing their best to walk with the Holy Spirit
Give thanks to God for everything – including hard times. Every hard time is an opportunity. Praise God for His goodness.
Please pray protection for Sarah, her family and her church. Please pray that God come against those that would try to hurt them.
But please also pray for those that set the fire. They must have a lot of anger and pain in their hearts to have done something like this. They really need Jesus Christ.
So many people in our country are lost without Jesus Christ. It’s the only explanation for the amount of anger they have when confronted with the Holy Spirit indwelling in a person such as Sarah. She’s someone they can’t touch – at least not that they can see. She doesn’t react to their barbs. So they just get angrier and angrier.
Dear God; please continue to Bless Sarah, and give her – our Esther – as well as her husband – her protector – all the strength and wisdom necessary for the job you have set before them.
