Your Presence is Your Voice

This is for all Christians in the Springfield and surrounding areas.  On October 13th the City Council of Springfield will be voting on an ordinance called SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity).

There will be two prayer meetings prior to the vote.  The ultimate goal is to have a minimum of two thousand Christians, cultural Christians and freedom lovers in general to show up at city hall on October 13th, and voice our no vote on this hideous bill.

This bill is not about discrimination!  This is about criminalizing Christianity.  There is only one group that declares that sexual immorality is wrong, therefore there is only one group that this is directed towards.

Many Christian businessmen have been sued, put out of business and intimidated for their belief in the scriptures.

We cannot afford to sit this one out!

The meeting will be on Oct. 4th at 5:00pm at:

Macedonia Baptist Church

3110 W. Sunshine, Springfield, MO.

Civil Rights?

Buckle up Springfield.  The Springfield city council is launching a vicious attack on Christianity in the name of equal rights.  At the end of the day the Church will be wide open to litigation, in spite of the so called church exclusion. After much legal counsel it has been determined that the exclusion is graciously giving the church what it already has, and offers no real guarantees.  I thought that it would be appropriate to post a Quote from Conservapedia.com by Alveda King during this debate.                                         

Dr. Alveda C. King is the founder of King for America, Inc. which is a faith based organization.

Dr. Alveda C. King stated the following to the Massachusetts General Assembly regarding the existence of ex-homosexuals is an argument that “gay rights” does not achieve civil rights status:

“  Thirty-nine years ago, my great-uncle, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., delivered to mindful citizens of America a prophetic dream which envisaged all of this great nation’s people living in the full exercise of all rights granted to them by the U.S. Constitution. My forebear’s dream was deeply rooted in the American dream wherein the Founders of our Union saw every lawful citizen standing in dignity outfitted by unalienable rights from God to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness free from the tyrannies of personal whim and ideology handed down by kings, dictators, political groups, and yes, some institutions of democratic government….

Yet, there is a larger body of science represented even by the above scientists that agrees that mature behavior patterns rely much more on social shaping and choices than genetic predisposition, such that these behaviors may be successfully modified by a variety of means. The food addict may eat responsibly, the alcoholic may drink responsibly or not at all, and the homosexual may live according to a wide range of choices as well. Thus, binge drinking, overeating, cocaine abuse and other behaviors do not have to be granted public latitude as a matter of right in this great nation. Certainly, these and other mutable behaviors may be practiced; they may be under constitutional protection in fact (under our privacy clauses), but they may not be granted civil rights or public protection.

Again, if behavior or other aspects of personhood may be altered, then those aspects fail to meet civil rights status. Homosexual practice clearly falls into this category. As my mother, Alveda C. King has said, “I have met many ex-homosexuals just as I have met many ex-husbands, ex-wives, ex-drug addicts and ex-lawyers. Yet I have never met an ex-Negro, ex-Caucasian or ex-Native American.” The politics of preference does not jibe with civil rights legitimacy.”

In short, the distinction is between characteristics that may be altered, and that thus do not merit civil-rights protection, and immutable characteristics, which do merit civil-rights protection. This is why sexual orientation does not merit civil-rights protection, while characteristics such as race, sex, and religion do.

The Pulpit is Responsible

Brethren, our preaching will bear its fruits.  If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree.  If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it.  If our politics be…come so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.

Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.  (Charles Finney)
I would also add that if the gay agenda prevails in Springfield, MO, and this current council is in power in the next term; the pulpit is responsible, or should I say the absence thereof.

Call To Action!!

Christians and freedom lovers of Springfield,

 

On September 8, 2014 (next Monday) the Springfield City Council will present a bill known as SOGI (Sexual orientation and Gender Identity).

Where this type of ordinance has passed, litigation against Christians has followed.

I am asking you to request your pastors make an announcement this Sunday in regards to attending this important meeting. Numbers are important, and they do matter. We need at least 1,000 Christians to attend. We need to petition this council to abandon this divisive law.

This is serious! This ordinance will:
