I grew up in one of those Judeo-Christian homes that apparently strike terror in the hearts of the likes of Betty Friedan, Alan Grayson and Kathryn Joyce. My parents never had sex until they got married to each other. Theirs is an enduring...

Show Me Thy Faith...

"Show me thy faith by thy works and I shall show thee the inside of a prison." (The Gospel According to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals)

World Net Daily ran a disturbing article last week about a Chinese Christian (arrested and beaten for holding a Bible study in his home), who was denied asylum in the United States by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

"...Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...", eh?

Further research showed the horrific logic of the Fifth Circuit. This is a must read! Let me summarize it, but be sure to check it out for yourself.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in the case of Xiaodong Li v. Alberto Gonzalez that the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision to deport Li cannot be reversed. Their reasons? What Li suffered, they say, was prosecution for illegal religious activity, and not persecution for his religious beliefs.

What the Fifth Circuit fails to see, is that real religious beliefs are hopelessly linked to religious activity. The two cannot be seperated. Faith without works is dead.

Beating and shocking an accused man with an electric baton before he has been tried and convicted isn't prosecution either, but I guess according to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, it is.

If this court were transported to 1608 England, under King James, it would have had the pilgrims beaten and thrown in prison! If the pilgrims came to the New World to find refuge today, they would be deported- because after all, England did allow some religious activity within the king's church, and the little Bible study the pilgrims were holding in their homes was against the law.

All I can say is, may God have mercy on us! We are in a disasterous state! And
the first place God will judge is the Church... and we are ripe and ready!
