Is President Obama’s Administration Committed to Religious Freedom?
LISTEN NOW! Greg, Steve, and Pat discuss whether President Obama’s Administration is committed to Religious freedom? According to CBN News, “Former U.S. Speaker of the House and 2012 presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said President Barack Obama isn’t doing enough to protect religious minorities that are under attack. “You look at the Muslim Brotherhood, which is burning down churches, you look at the radicals in Syria who have been beheading priests — nobody in this administration and frankly, no one in our news media outside of places like The 700 Club and CBN, are willing to talk about the very real threat — something which to his credit Rand Paul has talked about — and that is that there is a war against Christians all across the region,” he said.” They continue to discuss the recent resignation of the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook who was nominated to this post after it sat vacant for nearly two years. They remain hopeful with a new ambassador that things will change and continue to share the need not to fall asleep and turn a deaf ear to persecution of countless Christians around the world.
Sometimes Going to Church is More Bad than Good?
Greg, Steve, and, Pat discuss if sometimes going to church is more bad than good. The Bibles says in 1 Corinthians 11:17 “In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good.” They continue to discuss the great lengths some go to just to go to church instead of just “being” the church. Whatever they have been doing it has not been producing the fruit God desires. The emphasis is more about going to church instead of just being the church. Division is everywhere among the church. So many things were going wrong during the time of Paul’s writing under the unction of the Holy Spirit. They were just thinking about themselves much of what is taking place among the church today. When you don’t think about others in the church you are not thinking about Jesus. Of course it can all look the same but the truth is it’s all about the motives. It’s truly time to examine whether you are still in the faith. Jesus makes it clear that whatever we do to others we are doing to Him. Our test lies in our ability to love God and love others. It matters what happens when the church comes together.
