100 enchanted days And then you get a question A sweet softball question At your press conference And somehow you know, You know even then You get that kind of question Again and again.
100 enchanted days And yet they are suffering Americans are suffering Across this troubled land And night after night, As strange as it seems The knowledge of suffering Is ignored in your dreams.
Who can explain it? Who can tell us why? The press gives us excuses, Liberals never try.
100 enchanted days You chum it up with bad guys You pal it up with bad guys And never defend this land You call us arrogant, And for us apologize You bash the land we love And tell distortions and lies.
100 enchanted days, Is way too much for us. 100 enchanted days, Is way too much for us.
Cum Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc? The thing about Evolutionary Science is that they are so sure when they make these kind of claims: “…called…might…evidence has been weak and contentious…might…almost…thought that…suggests…likely…possible preserved stomach contents suggest…researchers think that…”
Evolutionists refuse to accept the complete and sufficient truth of God.
Who really cares what happened to this supposed animal when there is nothing proof positive that it actually existed? Most of the "missing link" fossils turn out to be incorrect anyway. The article said that it ate a duck and a rodent, which means that other bones had to have been found with this supposed animal. Why is it that those bones arent possibly a part of the skeleton?
Just to be sure where God's position on this is, read Romans 1
“I said, “You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High.” – Psalm 82:6 NKJV
Even Jesus confirms these words.
“Jesus answered them, `Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”’?’” – John 10:34 NKJV
Take a moment to reflect on what this means to you to know this. WOW! What a revelation! Imagine the possibilities never realized before. The implications upon us are boundless!
If you watch Christian TV – TBN, Daystar, INSP, etc. – most of the telepreachers – Hinn, Dollar, Copeland – preach this quite often. And it is called things like Word of Faith and Prosperity/Wealth and is connected with that faith healer movement travelling around the nation you hear about where there are large tents and people come from miles around to get healed.
What does it really mean to be a god according to God’s own words? Are we now endowed with supernatural existence? Omnipotence? Omniscience? Do we have the capacity to act as a deity? Are you really considering these possibilities? If you are Tom Cruise, and you have paid your $386,000.72 and been on the good ship Lollipop, it would be easy to stand up on a couch and cast lightening bolts at talk show hosts…
Now that I have your attention, let’s “keep it real.”
When God pronounced people “gods” in Psalm 82:6, He was not referring to being His equal. He was declaring that there were kings, rulers and other leaders that He brought to power by His holy authority. And when those who were given authority by Him became unjust in their leadership, they undermined His morally divine order. Yes, God is all-knowing and knew these leaders would be this way. Yet, just like a parent who knows exactly their child’s behavior but will give just enough room for the child to learn, God advised those He gave power to, giving them the choice to serve Him or serve themselves.
My point is that God will bestow upon each one of us a level of authority, whether it is in our family, at work, in school, as mentors, as elders, or even in our own private lives. How we choose to use that authority is one of His many precious gifts. We can either live our lives and use the authority over ourselves and others for our own selfish ambition or to glorify God. The beauty of it is that God actually give us a free choice in the matter. And He knows what we will do. Therefore, when we exercise authority over ourselves or others, that is power, a “god” power if you will, and that can only come directly from the Most High.
This is how serious this is. The choices we make in our lives, even the ones we make solely for ourselves, affect every aspect of our lives, and they are of God. I am not saying we are justified to God in the choices we make. NOT AT ALL! We are only justified through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. However, one way God’s love is given to us is through this power and authority and we are accountable to Him when we use, abuse or misuse it.
So, the next time you have to take the lead in something, remember that the authority you have, no matter how you got it, was ultimately given to you by God. He knows what decisions you will make and what actions you will take already. Bearing that in mind, do you want your authority to be one where God would look upon you with a smile and say, “Well done, my child.”?
What about what Jesus said in John 10:34 you ask? Well, Jesus was doing one of the things he did best: calling the Hebrew leaders of His day on their obsession with judging others. They judged Him guilty of blasphemy because He claimed to be God’s Son. He held them to their professed adherence to scriptures. He told them if God pronounced that man could be gods, then why couldn’t he be the Son of God? All they could do was try to throw more stones and capture Him without success.
Now, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China? Again God’s authority is the point here. Jesus being God had THE VERY authority of the Most High. Yet, Jesus was amazingly humble with the power and authority He had. If anyone could’ve changed the world with the snap of His fingers, Jesus could. But He understood fully the “hows” and “whys” of His authority. Jesus knew with absolute certainty what was needed from Him while He was here on earth.
What does this mean for you and me? “For everything comes from him; everything exists by his power and is intended for his glory. To him be glory evermore. Amen.” - Romans 11:36 NLT. To God be the glory! To GOD be the glory! In all things we do, God should be the focus. In every decision we make, every action we take, we should never forsake the gift of choice from the authority of our loving Most High Father. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!

Okay… So let’s say that Miss California, Carrie Prejean, answered Perez Hilton’s question regarding same sex message a different way. But let’s say that it was Kirk Cameron asking the question instead.
Let’s say that she answered saying that, in her opinion, she believed that same-sex marriage should be legalized nation-wide and that she was proud of her country for allowing such a choice.
Then let’s say that after she won the pageant based on her PC answer, Kirk Cameron posted a video attacking her in a similar way that Perez Hilton actually did.
Now how do you think this would go?
Cameron, and basically all Christians, would be conversely attacked for being intolerant and bigoted.
Miss Prejean answered a question based on her own opinion from within her own convictions. Whether it had anything to do with her winning the pageant or not is irrelevant. Because she is standing by her answer. And even though she didn’t say so at the pageant, she has since basically said it is based on biblical principles or in other words…BECAUSE GOD SAYS SO.
Way to go Miss California! Perez Hilton is guilty of the thing he accuses others of the most.
Now, here’s the rub…Does she have a right to tout a biblical belief one way and then act in what can be observed as a non-biblical way?
The pageant does have a swim suit phase in which the contestants were displayed in bikinis.
Does her parading her body in attire and posture where the male eye is directed and possibly in a lustful stare seem consistent with her biblical convictions on same-sex marriage?
As much as I admire her for sticking to her convictions and not backing down from her statement, I do have concern that such a person of biblical convictions would display herself in a way that makes her a sexual object rather than a follower of Christ.
As a man, I admit my eyes were drawn to her figure and looks in all the post pageant media I have seen…. And God truly did a great job on His creation! But I had to avert my eyes and remember that she is my sister-in-Christ first and for me to stare at her form keeps my thoughts away from glorifying God…. Yep breaking commandments 1 and 2.
I certainly hope that in all this controversy, Miss Prejean decides to seek God’s face and work for His glory above putting herself as an object to be focused on.
RECALL NOTICE: The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype unit’s code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed 'Sub-sequential Internal Non-Morality,' or more commonly known as S.I.N.., as it is primarily expressed.
Some of the symptoms include: 1. Loss of direction 2. Foul vocal emissions 3. Amnesia of origin 4. Lack of peace and joy 5. Selfish or violent behavior 6. Depression or confusion in the mental component 7. Fearfulness 8. Idolatry 9. Rebellion
