Is your church encouraging vaccines?


The Gospel Coalition works hard to sell this agenda, encouraging the church to get vaxs (Hello, Joe Carter. And a few other contributors).

https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/the-faqs-what-you-should-know-about-covid-19-vaccines/

We now have these “gems” by other authors:

Many Christians have been so passionate about the “wear a mask as a means to love your neighbor” narrative, while passing out hand sanitizer at church doors, that the bigger picture is missed entirely. Church, what are we doing?  Are we really so deceived by this agenda that we are willing to forfeit freedom? It’s a slippery slope… one that will have us in hot water for sharing the gospel if we don’t wake up.

The truth of the gospel is being TARGETED, yes. But also crumbling from withIN, as we witness more self-proclaimed Christians compromise truth for culture. Is it that we CAN’T see it? Or that we WON’T see it? Oh that we would guard our hearts and pray for wise discernment.

Dear Church…

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14


What is preached within your church community? Are you being asked to water down the gospel message to make room for this world’s noise? Oh, how I long for a body of believers with wise discernment… How about you?

Is it right??


The mind of a slave asks, “Is it legal?” The mind of a free person asks, “Is it right?” Legal doesn’t [always] mean it’s right.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority follow. This always reminds me of the 3 Hebrew children in Daniel 3. They did NOT bow down alongside the masses.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Right is right even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it. -Saint Augustine
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil… Isaiah 5:20
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
A few examples: Texas statutes, new school (rona) protocol (scanning for fevers, testing, etc.), a response from someone I once knew regarding a pastor’s arrest, Hawaii restrictions…

⠀⠀ ⠀Texas statutes

Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne arrested for conducting service, article 4.2.20

Online is NOT the same as GATHERING with other believers (doesn’t have to be in a church building). The government should NOT have the right to dictate religious gatherings per the Bill of Rights.

14 days to flatten the curve


Let’s see… 2,758 days (or so it feels) in this “14 days to flatten the curve” adventure now has faces muzzled, people afraid to look at one other, schools in chaos and businesses shut down. Churches are closed or encouraging government guidelines and bad science. How are we doing errybody?
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
For those that [still] don’t get it, we plant seeds of this grand agenda that’s playing itself out like a nightmare. However, the more people comply, the sicker and more ridiculous the elite games get.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Our children are relying on us to clean. this. up. Stand up! Speak up! Afraid? I get it… but when one of us finds the boldness to stand up, others will find their courage to do the same.


⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
The power of faith, trust in God, overcomes fear. It’s time to step out of the boat, my friends (Matthew 14).
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Every seed planted will not take root. In the parable of the sower, only 25% of the seeds sown took root… but that doesn’t stop us from sharing truth with those “who have ears (to) listen.” Matthew 13:3-9 Plant the seed and let Christ do the work. Please don’t be part of leading others astray in this agenda. Hello, pastors… (<– click link).

What can I do? Share the hope of Christ in a fallen world. Contact local representatives! Dip your toes into silent advocacy – leave information in all of the places you dare enter.

obey {God} rather than men

Excerpts from: Christ, not Caesar, Is Head of the Church

Christ is Lord of all. He is the one true head of the church (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). He is also King of kings—sovereign over every earthly authority (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; 19:16). As His people, we are subject to His will and commands as revealed in Scripture. We cannot and will not acquiesce to a government-imposed moratorium on… corporate gatherings. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞 𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐨𝐛𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐋𝐨𝐫𝐝’𝐬 𝐜𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
We 𝙙𝙤 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙩𝙚’𝙨 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙢𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣 to serve and worship our Lord as He has commanded. The church is Christ’s precious bride (2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5:23–27). She belongs to HIM alone. She exists by His will and serves under His authority. He will tolerate no assault on her purity and no infringement of His headship over her. All of that was established when Jesus said, “𝘐 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘶𝘪𝘭𝘥 𝘔𝘺 𝘤𝘩𝘶𝘳𝘤𝘩; 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘨𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘏𝘢𝘥𝘦𝘴 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘱𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘪𝘵” (Matthew 16:18)…
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
The honor that we rightly owe our earthly governors and magistrates (Romans 13:7) does not include compliance when such officials attempt to subvert sound doctrine, corrupt biblical morality, exercise ecclesiastical authority, or supplant Christ as head of the church in any other way.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
When officials prohibit singing in worship services, they attempt to impose a restriction that in principle makes it impossible for the people of God to obey the commands of Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16. When officials mandate distancing, they attempt to impose a restriction that in principle makes it impossible to experience the 𝚌𝚕𝚘𝚜𝚎 𝚌𝚘𝚖𝚖𝚞𝚗𝚒𝚘𝚗 𝚋𝚎𝚝𝚠𝚎𝚎𝚗 𝚋𝚎𝚕𝚒𝚎𝚟𝚎𝚛𝚜 that is commanded in Romans 16:16, 1 Corinthians 16:20, 2 Corinthians 13:12, and 1 Thessalonians 5:26. In all those spheres, we must 𝐬𝐮𝐛𝐦𝐢𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐋𝐨𝐫𝐝…
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
We cannot accept and 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐛𝐨𝐰 to the intrusive restrictions government officials now want to impose…

We offer this response without rancor, and not out of hearts that are combative or rebellious (1 Timothy 2:1–8; 1 Peter 2:13–17), but with 𝐚 𝐬𝐨𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐞 𝐦𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐰𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬…
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
“Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge” (Acts 4:19). And our unhesitating reply to that question is the same as the apostles’: “𝐖𝐞 𝐦𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐛𝐞𝐲 𝐆𝐨𝐝 𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐦𝐞𝐧” (Acts 5:29).

{free}dom in Christ

Free will is not the liberty to do whatever one likes, but the power of doing whatever one sees 𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐞, even in the very face of otherwise overwhelming impulse. There lies freedom, indeed. -George Macdonald
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
This year’s July 4th felt more like a happy {illusion of} freedom day, ‘Merica. As my daughter says, land of the free to do as you’re told.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
On a scale of 1 to 1984, how free do you feel? “Requirements” to wear a muzzle, stand 6 feet apart, follow arrows on the floor… BUT 𝙣𝙤 𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙝𝙪𝙧𝙘𝙝𝙚𝙨 𝙗𝙚𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙖𝙞𝙙 𝙢𝙪𝙯𝙯𝙡𝙚 (𝘾𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙣𝙞𝙖).



If one is not filled with righteous anger, one is not paying attention. We are instructed to be angry 𝚠𝚒𝚝𝚑𝚘𝚞𝚝 𝚜𝚒𝚗 𝚒𝚗 𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚛𝚎𝚜𝚙𝚘𝚗𝚜𝚎 (Ephesians 4:26). As big government targets the church, I pray our response is to worship louder. When it comes to Romans 13, it’s 𝐬𝐮𝐛𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐆𝐨𝐝, 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭. This is spiritual warfare (2 Corinthians 10), the most important battle we will fight.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
We can have all of the freedoms this world has to offer, but unless we have accepted the eternal gift of Christ, we are living in a mirage of freedom. Simply put… 𝐈𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭, 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞! It’s THAT freedom which inspires songs of praise, even under the most difficult circumstances. We were never promised that the road less traveled would be easy, only that He would walk through the fire 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐮𝐬.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
If you don’t know Him, I pray that you seek Him… He is waiting.

it’s {not} just a mask

As a Christ follower and minister’s wife, I cringe every time I hear anyone use scripture to preach wearing a mask as a means to “love our neighbor.” Please. Stop. cherry picking scripture. I say this with all love. Preaching a 1 degree off doctrine to fit this grand script of deception does not advance the kingdom.
Example: https://churchleaders.com/outreach-missions/outreach-missions-articles/377628-why-im-wearing-a-mask-to-church-next-sunday.html
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
There is an agenda at work – we are called to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Matt. 10:16 …so that we may not be taken advantage of by Satan. For we are not ignorant of his schemes. 2 Cor. 2:11 Wake up, church!
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
It’s just a mask? ✖️It’s just two weeks. ✖️It’s just non-essential businesses. ✖️It’s just to keep from overwhelming the hospitals. ✖️It’s just until cases go down more. ✖️It’s just to keep others from being scared. ✖️It’s just for a few more weeks. ✖️It’s just communion or singing. ✖️It’s just until we get a vaccine. ✖️It’s just a few side effects. ✖️It’s just a bracelet. ✖️It’s just to let people know you’re safe to be around. ✖️It’s just for the coronavirus vaccine. ✖️It’s just an app. ✖️It’s just to let others know who you’ve been in contact with. ✖️It’s just a few more months. ✖️It’s just a video. ✖️It’s just an email account. ✖️It’s just for protecting others from hate speech. ✖️It’s just a few people. ✖️It’s just a few places that don’t take cash. ✖️It’s just a little chip. ✖️It’s just for medical information and paying for things. ✖️It’s just so you can travel. ✖️It’s just so you can get your driver’s license. ✖️It’s just so you can vote. ✖️It’s just for a few more years. ✖️It’s just a statue. ✖️It’s just a building. ✖️It’s just a song. ✖️It’s just a piece of paper. ✖️It’s just a flag. ✖️It’s just a piece of cloth. ✖️It’s {NOT} just a piece of cloth. ✖️It’s {NOT} just a mask.  -Forrest Maready

Love your neighbor by: hugging (plastic-free), smiling, making a meal, celebrating a birthday together, meeting a financial need, cleaning their home, and listening. Share the gospel & message of hope in Christ.

How can you love your neighbor today?

i stayed silent until…

I stayed silent until I discovered the system wasn’t broken — it was intentionally made that way.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I stayed silent until I recognized familiar symptoms on the vaccine insert.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I stayed silent until discovering aborted babies were used (and abused).
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I stayed silent until [pro-life Christian] friends said — It doesn’t matter! Those babies were going to be aborted anyway!
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I stayed silent until [Christian] friends condescendingly declared that advocacy wasn’t important to Kingdom work.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I stayed silent until I recalled the mom who slipped in church service late on the back row, leaving early, because her son was “interrupting” – clearly on the spectrum.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I stayed silent until I realized the church needed to find her voice.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
And then I remembered… that voice was mine.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which He blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are His body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours. -Teresa of Ávila
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

What were your “until” moments?

Wake Up, Church!

Like many, we watched a church service online, as most church buildings closed their doors, due to government restrictions… for a virus.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I won’t get into how I feel about the church doors closing in this post, but I will tell you what made my heart sink as we listened [live] to one of our favorite ministers in this season. He began to explain the importance of precaution and expressed hope that they are working on medicine… and then he spoke the word I was hoping he would NOT mention in this context…… Vaccines. *Sigh*  My husband changed the channel. I’m not here to slander this minister, but to simply share this…
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Many years ago, when my husband and I pastored a church, we were not aware of the evils behind the vax industry — nor did we know ANYONE who questioned them. If they did, they remained SILENT. We didn’t understand the carcinogenic toxins, nor the abuse of aborted babies. If only someone had planted a seed.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
We can allow ourselves to look back with regret at all the things we wish we would have done differently, the brokenness lying in the past. Or… We can look forward to the hope set before us, while sharing the hope within us to those who are unaware.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Sadly, everyone will not be ready to comprehend the deception they allowed themselves to embrace — to have their entire belief system shaken. Those who have ears, let them hear.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
However, for those who are awake, silence is not a luxury. Let us NOT remain voiceless while many people, Christ followers, LEADERS, are blinded to the point of NOT recognizing this growing darkness.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I’m praying for the church to WAKE UP.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

There is a time to be silent and a time to SPEAK (Ecclesiastes 3:7).
