Aaron & Melissa Klein : Oregon Christian bakery owners ordered to pay lesbian couple $135,000

SHOCKING: The Christian bakery owners in Oregon who were prosecuted by the state for refusing to participate in a same-sex marriage by baking a wedding cake, have been ordered to pay the lesbian couple $135,000?
The payout is for a long list of alleged damages including: “acute loss of confidence,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “pale and sick at home after work,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “weight gain,” and “worry.
And the Kleins have been ordered to “cease and desist” from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs.
Hear what the Kleins have to say in this article: http://go.cbn.com/1372
**Please join us in praying for them as they appeal the ruling. May the Lord see the injustice and be moved to act on their behalf. What the enemy meant for evil, may God turn it into an extraordinary blessing.

Bishop T.D. Jakes Addresses SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision: 'We Shouldn't Lose Our Minds Over the World Being the World

T.D Jakes informed worshipers at The Potter's House in Dallas that he had been "bombarded" by various people wanting to know his thoughts on the Supreme Court's ruling last Friday that state bans on gay marriage are unconstitutional.
"I'm not really as concerned about this as a lot of people are," said Jakes during service on Sunday, according to a video excerpt of his remarks published online. "I'm really not as concerned about it. I think that we should not lose our mind about the world being the world and the Church being the Church. This is not a news flash. The world is gonna be the world and the Church is gonna be the Church, and you have to understand the difference."

Entire Staff of Tennessee Decatur County Clerk’s Office Resigns Over Supreme Court ‘Gay Marriage’ Ruling

The entire staff of a county clerk’s office in Tennessee has resigned following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling declaring that all 50 states must legalize same-sex “marriage.”
Three women who work at the Decatur County office announced their resignations this past week, which will be effective July 14. Clerk Gwen Pope, and employees Sharon Bell and Mickey Butler all have decided to leave their jobs because of their Christian convictions.
“It’s kind of sort of like you don’t want to draw attention to yourself for any reason,” Pope told local television station WBIR, stating that she never sought press over the matter. “That’s not why we’re doing this. Not doing it in any way to draw attention to us. It’s for the glory of God. He’s going to get all the glory.”
The outlet states that a number of area residents called or visited the office on Thursday to express their support of the women.

Marriage Equality : Oregon Declares War On Christian Faith

In one of the most egregious anti-Christian acts committed by a state official in recent memory, Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian not only upheld the ridiculous $135,000 fine levied against Aaron and Melissa Klein for declining to bake a cake for a lesbian commitment ceremony, but he ordered the Kleins to “cease and desist” from making any public comments about their religious convictions relative to this case.
This is an outrage and a travesty, and it must be rebuked and resisted. Who does Mr. Avakian think he is?
The fine itself is unconscionable, as the amount of $135,000 was determined by tallying up the alleged emotional damages experienced by the lesbian couple, who as Thomas D. Williams noted, “accused the Kleins of ‘mental rape,’ adding that they had suffered a ‘loss of appetite’ and ‘impaired digestion,’ which remarkably led to ‘weight gain.’”
If anyone here was “raped,” it was the Kleins (by the government) not this couple (by the Kleins).

Paster Ed Young under fire for invited Glenn Beck to speak at Church

GRAPEVINE, Texas — A popular megachurch minister in Texas has come under fire for inviting radio host and author Glenn Beck to speak at his church as part of an Independence Day celebration.
Ed Young of the multi-site Fellowship Church invited Beck, an outspoken Mormon, to speak during all of his Sunday services today as part of Young’s Freedom Experience event. Beck’s presentations were advertised on the church website as “a message of hope and history as we look to honor those who have provided us with our freedom.”
The announcement was met by criticism from some who expressed concerns about a Mormon being invited to a Southern Baptist Church to speak during the Sunday services.
Andy Boyd, a spokesman for Fellowship Church, said that Beck was invited since he is a known American historian, and also because the he has “shown his love for God in many ways.”

Isis in gaza : Gaza to be declared Islamic State Caliphate

TEL AVIV – Marking a significant development in Mideast affairs, Salafists in the Gaza Strip plan to officially pledge allegiance to ISIS and openly fight under its banner, a senior Salafist militant in Gaza told WND in a phone interview.
The news immediately followed the release of a video from ISIS insurgents in Syria threatening to turn the Gaza Strip into another one of their Middle East territories and accusing Gaza’s Hamas rulers of selling out Islamic values.
Abu Mousub, an aide to Abu Al-Ayna al-Ansari, a leader of a Salafi group in the Gaza Strip, told WND by phone from Gaza that Al-Ansari’s group will officially announce it is representing ISIS in Gaza.
Until now, Al-Ansari’s jihadi group and other Gaza-based Salafist organizations have hesitated to officially declare themselves part of ISIS, instead preferring to say they were allied with ISIS ideology. This even though their written statements and videos brandished the ISIS flag.

Muslim Riots in Hungarian Camp after Qur’an was “stepped on”

Hungarian police were called to break up fighting at a migrant camp in the eastern city of Debrecen on Monday.
Rubbish had been set on fire and rocks were thrown after a dispute between two migrants grew into a full blown riot.
Around 150 officers , some using teargas were needed to restore order.
Hungary is in the European Union’s Schengen visa-free travel zone and as such an attractive destination for tens of thousands of migrants entering Europe through the Balkans from the Middle East and Africa.
In the first six months of this year, the number of migrants crossing into the EU via Hungary’s border with Serbiaexceeded 66,000.

Ramadan : 74 children executed by ISIS for 'crimes' that include refusal to fast,

The blood-soaked executioners of ISIS have spared neither women nor children since the jihadist army established its caliphate a year ago, putting an estimated 74 kids and even more women to death for such offenses as practicing “magic” and refusing to fast during Ramadan.
A total of 3,027 people have been executed by ISIS since it declared itself a state under strict Islamic law in Syria and Iraq last June, according to a new report by the UK-based group, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
"Many of the charges against those executed are recorded as blasphemy and spying, but others include sorcery, sodomy, practicing as a Shia Muslim," the report states.

Rep. Kenneth Hodges, pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church joins race to replace Pinckney’s seat

Pinckney held the District 45 seat before he was murdered along with eight others at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston on June 17.
“After his death, it was laid on my heart: I would have to get into the race,” Hodges said, a video of the announcement later posted on YouTube.

4th July Prophetic DNA by Lance Wallnau

The 4th day of July, 1776, is the prophetic moment when the nation was born. It carries some equally prophetic DNA for the future.
1. It was a declaration from 13 independent colonies who knew they could not win their battle unless they gave up autonomy and showed up AS ONE.. a UNITED States of America. What's the lesson for the church right now on the USA? What's the lesson for the 7m marketplace? It's time we renounced our cursed "independence" and joined forces.
2. The two original signers both died 50 years after this signing- on the same day! Guess what day they both died? July 4th!!! 1826.
Meaning what? Jefferson and Adams represent two dreams and philosophies for America. One sacred. One secular. It seems that should this dream ever die- both go at the same time. Is 50 years a Jubilee?
3. Adams knew this day July 4th was a day to see Gods work in our nation. He wrote to his wife..... "It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
What's this?!
"A day of deliverance? Acts of devotion to Almighty God?" Is Adams delusional? Did he not know that what we know? Namely that America is not a Christian nation and never was? We separate faith from everything, right? I guess Adams attended the wrong Revolution.
America Shall Be Saved! May Gods will be done... even in our own momentary undoing.

Marriage Equality & Polygamy : A Montana man has now applied for a marriage license to legally marry a second wife

A Montana man has now applied for a marriage license to legally marry a second wife.
Nathan Collier says he was inspired by last week's Supreme Court ruling.
Collier, a former Mormon, was excommunicated for polygamy and now belongs to no religious organization. He and two women applied for the license Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage.
All states outlaw bigamy, but Collier plans to sue if his application is denied.
"It's about marriage equality. You can't have this without polygamy," Collier told the Associated Press. http://go.cbn.com/1346

Franklin Graham on the removal of Oklahoma Ten Commandment Monument

When I went to school, the Ten Commandments were posted in the classroom, and the teacher led us in the Lord’s Prayer before we went to lunch. There was respect throughout society for the Word of God. How times have changed! Today, everything related to God and His Word is coming under fire in our nation. On Tuesday the ‪#‎Oklahoma‬ Supreme Court ruled that a 6-foot-tall Ten Commandments monument on the capitol grounds must be removed. Governor Mary Fallin supported the monument and is looking at other legal options to keep it there—I hope she finds some. We’re living in a time when our country is not only blatantly defying God’s laws, but is trying to remove them completely from public view. Just think what a difference it would make if our school children today learned about the ‪#‎TenCommandments‬ and the God who wrote them.

Embattled Singapore City Harvest Church Pastor Kong Hee Selling $10 Million 'Lavish and Opulent' Penthouse

City Harvest Church pastor Kong Hee has put up for sale a co-owned $10 million luxury penthouse in Sentosa Cove, Singapore, amid an ongoing trial concerning the possible misuse of over $19 million in church funds to finance his wife's music career. Kong has hit back against a report describing the penthouse, calling it "misleading and exaggerated."
Kong explained that his family has sold other properties as well to help pay their attorneys' fees.
"The property that my family and I have been living in is co-owned with another family. We have been living at this property with the co-owner's kind permission after we had to sell our properties in order to pay the legal expenses for the ongoing trial," the pastor said in a Facebook post, responding to a Straits Times article from earlier this week.
He also clarified that the families have been trying to sell the property for some time.
According to the ST report, an anonymous investor who has visited the penthouse described it as "lavish and opulent."
The investor said: "The home is decorated with quality furniture and top of the range equipment. It gives me the impression that the owner sure knows how to enjoy the high life."
The 5,242 sqare foot duplex reportedly has 'giant crystal light fixtures and works of art,' a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi, a roof terrace with a large pool, and a number of other luxuries.
Kong responded, however, that the investor is using "superlative terms to describe the property," and is "implying that its furnishings are grand and luxurious."

Kris Vallotton KVMinistries.com : Word for Today Devotional

When your WALK with God is limited to a philosophy you agree with and a prayer you prayed, it inspires debates like, "is it once saved always saved?" Nobody in the Bible, ever received Christ by praying a prayer. It's extra-biblical (not anti-biblical).
But if you are a follower of Jesus than questions like this are irrelevant because the word became flesh in you.
Words often change meanings though the years. I remember when a hard drive was a rough road and gay meant happy. The word "Christian" has also changed meaning. It used to mean, a holy person, who is following Jesus, and managing their temptations towards integrity. It described a person who was carrying their cross, dying to live, and believes the Bible.
Now the word "Christian" means someone who prayed a prayer, they agree with portions of the Bible; they live like hell, and claim to know heaven. "Christian" is no longer synonymous with godliness, righteousness, morality, honestly, or power. We hang out with sinners, become just like them, so we don't offend them, so we can win them. �� Now they call convictions judgments and exchanged a backbone for a wishbone!
I have decided not to confuse people with the title of Christian. From now on I am a Believer...a follower of Jesus. Jesus never made Christians, He only made disciples, who followed. ‪#‎kvm‬

DEATH COUNTDOWN -- A group calling itself a branch of ISIS has threatened Arab Christians in Jerusalem with death if they don't leave the city. "ISIS Palestine" handed out flyers warning if the Christians aren't gone by the end of Ramadan, they will be "slaughtered like sheep."
They are calling on Muslims to identify "those who collaborate with the Zionists" and provide their addresses.
"We will uproot the state of the Jews. And you and Fatah and all of the secularists are nothing and you will be overrun by our creeping multitudes. The rule of Sharia will be implemented in Gaza in spite of you," the speaker warns. "We swear that what is happening in the Levant today and in particular in the Yarmouk camp, will happen in Gaza."
**Please respond to this EMERGENCY prayer request for Israel and the Arab Christians being threatened.

Man who killed Pastor Fred Winters of Illinois found ‘not guilty by reason of insanity

EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KTVI) – A Troy, Illinois man was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the March 2009 shooting death of a Maryville pastor, the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office said Thursday.
The suspect, 33-year-old Terry Sedlacek, walked into the First Baptist Church on March 8, 2009 in the middle of a service. Sedlacek walked down the main aisle while Pastor Fred Winters was delivering a sermon.
Sedlacek pulled out a .45-caliber handgun and began firing at the pastor. Parishioners attempted to subdue Sedlacek, but he was armed with a knife. Sedlacek stabbed two men before attempting to take his own life by cutting his throat.
Pastor Winters died as a result of gunshots to the chest and abdomen. The stabbing victims eventually recovered from their injuries.

CHRISTIAN WOMAN (mother of 5 ) FACING DEATH PENALTY FOR DRINKING OUT OF SAME GLASS AS MUSLIM

It is hard to believe that Asia Bibi was sentenced to death for drinking water from the same cup used by her Muslim co-workers in Pakistan. This is life under Sharia law. There are so many Christians around the world who are suffering right now because of their faith. For every story we hear in the news, there are multitudes more who are persecuted or killed because of the Name of Christ. Read Greta Van Susteren's post about this mother of five—I appreciate Greta making people aware. Pray for Asia Bibi and for all Christians living in Muslim countries.
CHRISTIAN WOMAN (mother of 5 ) FACING DEATH PENALTY FOR DRINKING OUT OF SAME GLASS AS MUSLIM
A Pakistani Christian woman facing death for drinking water out of the same vessel used by her Muslim co-workers is in such poor health her supporters fear she won't make it to her date with the executioner.
Aasiya Noreen, a wife and mother of five better known as Asia Bibi, was sentenced in 2010 to be hanged for apostasy. The grim verdict was handed down after her co-workers charged she had insulted Prophet Mohammed when she was told she could not share the water vessel. Now 50, Bibi is suffering from numerous health problems, including intestinal bleeding, according to Global Dispatch, which cited Bibi's family in reporting the woman is “so weak she could hardly walk.”

The Pope Condom : New York Times post offensive images about Christianity but not Islam?

So the folks over at the Milwaukee Art Museum thought it would be a good idea to display a painting of the pope -- made out of condoms.
Turns out the museum's patrons were not all that keen on the idea.
The painting of Pope Benedict has created quite a bit of controversy -- even more so when the New York Times posted a photograph of the painting.
The Times has previously posted images of the Virgin Mary covered in elephant dung and a crucifix dipped in urine.
The condom pope painting exposes the downright hypocrisy of The Times.
The newspaper refuses to publish any images that disparage the Prophet Muhammed. They say the don't want to offend their Muslim readers.
So why does the New York Times post offensive images about Christianity but not Islam?
I suspect it's because they don't want to get blown to smithereens.
