In 2019, Pew Research did a global survey asking if people could be moral without God. It is interesting that the answers vary according to the economic development, education and age of the individuals being surveyed.
Growing up in America, as children, we looked forward to the enjoyable parades and patriotic celebrations to commemorate meaningful events in our history. They were joyous occasions that swelled our hearts with patriotism and love and appreciation to be living in this great country. But the recent marches of people we have seen on the streets of our cities these days are intended to gain support for what some believe are injustices committed against them. We do not deny that there are injustices being committed. But in America we have been provided with processes to get justice and change what needs to be changed for the greater good. However, these injustices are now being blamed on everyone from the government, police, business owners, homeowners, to everyone with white skin or a different skin color who is alive today in this country and even in the past.
I am disgusted, but not surprised, of the double-minded reasons and behavior many people are using these days to justify their absurd and bizarre decisions and behavior merely to get their way with no consideration to our rule of law and the rights of others. They could care less that they are ruining our nation by destroying the foundation it is built upon and therefore robbing future generations of citizens of the valuable legacy and heritage we have been given in this country.
A coup of our children by the government through the Department of Education has taken over our public-school education. The government thinks our children belong to it rather than to the children’s parents.
Did you get a sinking feeling this past week yet again with another atrocious ruling from the Supreme Court on Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act? It is a bizarre ruling that changes the meaning of “biological sex” with far-reaching effects beyond male and female to a myriad of perverted sexual preferences that must now be respected and included beyond just employment. These perverted men and women can now become your child’s kindergarten teachers at your local school.
Nena Arias | June 17, 2020 There is only one fear that is necessary; the fear of God. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28). Fear of God is
America is facing the deepest family crisis in its history. The breakdown of the family structure established by God has been under assault for over 163 years since divorce became legal in the U.S. approximately in the mid to late 19th century. Divorce increased at a rapid rate as prices were lowered and it became easier to obtain a divorce to people of limited means. Divorce became accepted as an alternative to marital unhappiness aided by the weakened importance of spiritual consequences in the breakup of a marriage. Also, the greater independence of women gaining more legal rights and the opportunity to self-support caused a wedge in the marital institution. The increase of the crumbling of the family structure was set in motion in this latter part of the 19th century.
Nena Arias | June 15, 2020 “What sorrow awaits those who argue with their Creator. Does a clay pot argue with its maker? Does the clay dispute with the one who shapes it, saying, ‘Stop, you’re doing it wrong!’ Does the pot exclaim, ‘How clumsy can you be?’” (Isaiah 45:9)
The way people interpret “freedom” has everything to do with how they live and how they treat others. Judging by that statement we can conclude that we are living at a time of great contradictions.
In a free society, like the United States of America, The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution establishes the freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition. The Constitution gives its citizens the right to “peaceably assemble” even if it is to protest against the government and the civic authorities but it must be done peaceably and in order.
To suppress something is to deliberately hold back. So, we have to say that suppression of truth comes from wickedness. We all need truth sooner or later. We cannot live without truth.
I received an email that greatly disturbed me because in spite of all the decades of consistent intercessory prayer efforts and countless ministries—that are combating evil and darkness in this world, through all the means available, darkness keeps advancing at a neck-break pace.
Nena Arias | May 14, 2020 There is a deadly virus that has been around a lot longer than any other virus known to man. It is the worst virus of all in the history of mankind. It is worse than any plague ever known to the human race even
