I want you to take a minute and think about that for a minute. The state of Virginia, the politicians of Virginia, have found it necessary to step in and make a law prohibiting people from wearing pants cut so low that they show their underwear. Now think about this, it is the politicians who have come to the realization that all of this low cut pant stuff is bordering on nudity is offensive. We are not talking about pillars of society here, we are talking about the people who have brought you legislation legalizing infanticide, legislation to legalize homosexual behavior. Not pillars of society by any stretch of the imagination. It is politicians who have brought us legalized gambling, legalized everything, opened the air waves to pornography and yet, these self same politicians are starting to say 'enough is enough'.
Now I'm going to ask you to ponder two questions. First, what in the world would possess a father to let his teen aged sons and daughters go out in public wearing pants cut so low as to show their underwear? Second: what in the world would possess a husband to allow his wife out in public wearing pants cut so low that the entire world could see her underwear?
I think the answer to both questions is simple, to much of the world gets married for all the wrong reasons. They do not get married out of love, hey, if they loved one another they would wait till they were married to have marital relations together. No, to many marry for reasons like money. Marriage today is more of a business arrangement than what God had in mind when He created Marriage.
Did you know that the number of men bringing their sons, daughters and wives to nudist camps is on the upswing? Did you know that close to one out of three young girls, under 16, who go to have the baby in their womb slaughtered, are brought by one or both of their parents? Did you know that there is now a whole industry and lobby for incest? Did you know that they claim that one out of four families in the US have had at least one instance of incest?
I'm not going to sit here and tell you to get your kids out of the public school system, I'm tired of hearing the excuses. But, can I at least get you to take your families to a church that still believes in and preaches the old testament rules?
Let me start with what Jesus said in the New Testament before I go into the rule of the Old Testament.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Matthew 5:13-18 ACP/KJV)
Do you understand what the Lord is saying here? He is saying that He did not come to end the Old Testament, but to fulfill everything that one must do to be proved the Messiah, but that everything else in the Old Testament is still perfectly valid and will remain so till every prophecy in all of Scripture is fulfilled.
Guys the only way, I know of, to get your family back on the straight and narrow is to abide by Gods rules and regulations.
There comes a time in our lives when we must face up to the fact that we can not do it on our own. We, and I'm serious here, we could not change things even if we were given the power of being supreme dictator of the world. The sins of this world, the sexual immorality has become so ingrained in us that even the worst of our society, the politicians, are starting to realize that things are getting out of hand.
Did you know that any of the little porno sites on the web gets more hits in 3 hours than ChristianPatriot.com, the worlds most popular and most visited fundamental Christian preaching site, gets in three days. Even the little porno sites get hundreds of thousands of hits an hour. Let me put this another way, in order for ChristianPatriot.com to be as popular as any of the top one hundred porno sites, we would have to get five million hits a day.
During the seven years of tribulation there is a time when Christians can not buy, sell or do any kind of commerce. They are forced to live apart, for if they are caught they are killed. Guys, I know you can not separate yourselves from the world, I know you can not keep you children from seeing and wanting what other kids have and do. I know that. I also know that you grandparents out there have even less authority and influence with your grandchildren than do their parents. I know there is nothing that I can say that will get you to uproot your family and move them out of cities and towns and off onto a wilderness farm or ranch. I know there is nothing I can say or do to get you to burn your television and disconnect your internet.
I have not even been able to convince you to take your kids out of the public school system, never mind get you to do what I can't do, which is to remove my family from the world and into a rural God fearing setting. And it is for all those reasons that I strongly urge you to at least get your family into a church that preaches salvation through Christ and the old testament rules and regulations.
Look, if it has become so common knowledge that even I have heard the claim that one out of four families in the US have had at least one instance of incest in their family. Look if I know it, don't you think your kids know it? Have you ever talked with your kids about incest being wrong? Do you think, for one moment, that they are going to have it drummed into their heads at school that incest is wrong?
Leviticus chapter Eighteen:
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God. After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. Ye shall do My judgments, and keep Mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.
Ye shall therefore keep My statutes, and My judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.
None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD. The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness.
The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness. The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister: for she is thy mother's near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: it is thy brother's nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.
Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.
Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness. Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her.
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. (Leviticus 18: 1-23 ACP/KJV)
Do I think the claim by the incest groups that one out of four families has been incestuous at least once is outlandish? No, and neither would you if you read some of the e-mails I get and overheard some of the phone calls.
Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we have reached a point where we can no longer help ourselves, we have gotten to the point where we will either accept the horrors going on around us or fall on our faces and beg God to intercede.
Do you think that politicians, who can not even agree that to kill a little defenseless baby trapped in his or her moms womb is wrong, are going to turn this moral decay around? Do you think that politicians who can not even understand that people coming across our borders without going thru the front door are criminals, are going to turn this moral decay around?
Look at Maine's own first congressional district congressman Tom Allen. Family is of so little importance to him that he flew to Washington on the Saturday his daughter was getting married to vote, in the House, against impeaching Clinton. He knew, as did everyone else, that his vote would change nothing, the votes were there for impeachment and his going to Washington to vote only meant that he felt that casting a useless vote was more important than being with his family the day of his daughters marriage.
Do you think, for even one minute that the likes of Kennedy, Collins, Snowe, Biden, Frank, Allen, and other politicians will somehow find the moral compass to reverse the moral decay that they, through their cowardice, perversions, and votes have caused?
In Maine, Governor John Baldacci calls hundreds of Christians 'cuckoos' and can not find even a minute to come out and acknowledge their being in Augusta. Yet he has signed executive orders promoting the radical homosexual agenda. Yes, in Virginia the body politic has stepped up to the plate to address one of the horrors of this sexually gutter morality we have found ourselves in, but do you think for one minute that the courts will let it stand? Do you think that other states will follow suit?
Men it is time to pray, it is time to turn this over to God, for if we continue to procrastinate, if we continue to try and ignore it, it is our children and our grandchildren that are going to pay a horrible price.
Lord, help us to find the courage to turn this mess over to You, for we ahve made a terrible mess of things. Amen.

May the Lord understand the importance of Mac, Cecily, Steve, and Rev. Jim Marstaller to this ministry. Lord I need them both healthy and able to continue to hold up their ends. Lord this cancer of Mac's is starting to get in the way, this ministry needs him whole, just a thought Lord, is all it will take, just a thought on Your part.
There is a young man, a veteran who suffers from some kind of chemical weapon exposure, in a Veterans hospital in Colorado, he is young, and he is Saved, yet his wife just abandoned him. Please pray for him, Lord, help him and deal with her and those who hurt him, we ask this of the Father in Your name Lord Jesus, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with and bless you all, amen.
The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
