From "He Who is Generous" to "Needy Children Must Suffer"!

Originally, when people began calling for separation of "Church" and "State" it may have seemed harmless. Many thought that this would simply mean no prayers, or forcing one denomination over another. or something similar. 

These days it has been taken to a whole new level. We have now regressed to banning toy drives for needy kids!

 We are no longer allowed to call "Christmas" by its name (Christmas), we can't have Christmas trees, or Christmas plays,  and Christmas Carols are strictly forbidden.

In the western world, we have celebrated Christmas in one way or another for hundreds of years. It has traditionally been a time for Peace, Family, Joy and general good feelings for all people. Even non-Christians, such a Jews and Buddhists, and those who considered themselves "secular" joined in the seasonal festivities and merry making. During WWII, there were many stories where both sides took a break from the fighting for that one day.

Now, a school is being threatened  with legal action for filling "shoe boxes" with small items such as pencils and tiny toys for needy children. These people who are so high on their own self-righteousness are preventing one group of kids who "have" from "giving" to another group of kids who "have not". How can this be for the good of anyone? How can teaching children to give to the needy be a bad thing?

This insidious act~and many more like it~is directed solely at anything that hints at Christianity. Think about it~Where is the protest when Muslims hold their prayers in schools? Why is there no protest when we are forced to serve halal foods in schools, and why can't a Christian wear a simple cross, yet a Muslim is allowed to wear a full headdress or even a burkha (full face and body cover)? There are no legal actions when Muslims want to celebrate Ramadan or when non-Muslim kids are told to "not eat their lunch" in front of Muslims for a  month. The list is endless~but are we willing to open our eyes!

Our Calendar begins with the birth of Christ, which is marked at Christmas~should we now change that? If we are going to abandon everything "faith based" then should it not reach across all boundaries to all facets of all religions?

This politically correct insanity has invaded our lives~it is destroying our history and culture, and sucking the joy out of absolutely everything~while at the same time promoting a total lack of morals of any kind. We have become a society of "do what makes you feel good" and "I" am the most important~Anything Goes!

The time to stop the madness is now! Speak up because very soon it will be too late!

Atheist / Humanist? Groups Have Overstepped The Boundary! It's Time to Stop the Madness!

Short Film: Summer in the HolyLand

Mentoring is one of the joys of life for  Drs. Jay and Meridel Rawlings. Their home and studio is often a 'stopping' place for young men. Creativity lives at this address, and young people are encouraged to 'reach for the sky': 'to be all they can be'. It is a 'safe place' where ideas are permitted to abound. Ideas and hard work. The short film you are about to see was entered into a world wide 'You Tube' contest. The theme had to reflect one's city and nation.

Beauty shots of Israel make up a beautiful backdrop to this unassuming tale of 'loneliness'. The story line was conceptualized by Michael Hildsden and his bride Becky. Love came to life under the able hands of three friends. Michael asked Daniel Rawlings to produce, while Paul Chobaniuk added the  art direction with Michael Hilsden directing and doing camera work. Thanks go to many others who worked on the project. May this be the first of many. It won 3rd place in the Neumannfilms "Summer In"~Short Film Competition. Congrats guys and  Becky of course. Hope you enjoy!

Wait--The Only World Leader Talking About Real Morals Is Vladimir Putin?? We're Doomed...

An Appeal...

Thanks to the wisdom and understanding of the Spirit of God, my precious family and your giving we have championed Israel’s historic and Biblical cause in the media. By God’s grace we have regularly given “biblical reports” based on the instruction of the “Still Small Voice” when in 1969 He said to us,

1]  “If you love My people!”;  and

2]  “Declare among the nations, lift up a banner and publish and  proclaim. Do not conceal but broadcast it far and wide!”...Jeremiah 50:2a

For forty four years we have worked to be faithful to His instructions. Today the future of our work is seriously threatened by lack of finances. Although support has dropped off yearly, we continued by cutting back on all costs. Now there is nothing left to cut back.

To continue we must, either have more income from our faithful partners or have more partners. It is as simple as that. We normally receive sizable funding, but this year it did not materialize. For the past quarter, I have struggled to pay costs as well as basic salaries and back bills for 2013, but we have reached an impasse. To continue must have a major infusion of funds.

As our beloved partners I hesitate to ask you for more help but when I asked the Lord about it in prayer, He said:
“You have not because you ask not!!...James 4:2b

Now I am asking You to Please join us in Prayer for this shortfall to be met. You can partner with us in our work by using our PayPal button above ~OR~ request that we make a direct debit to your credit card ~OR~ send cheques to:
