Ice-640x480Breitbart: “Immigration authorities will consider housing transgender detainees based on the gender they identify with in the wake of criticism about detention conditions for the population, officials said on Monday.

Detention staff should consider transgender detainees’ preferences when making decisions about housing and clothing and what pronouns should be used, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in new guidelines for the treatment of transgender detainees.

The agency will start tracking data for transgender detainees, train detention staff and draft individual detention plans for transgender detainees to deal with issues ranging from hormone therapy to safety, said Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, ICE’s deputy assistant director of custody programs.”

Opinion: Next up , hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery courtesy of the US taxpayer.

“For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation!” So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls.” Acts 2:39-41

To our readers:

The purpose of this website is to lead people to Jesus Christ on a level that the new Christian can understand; hence my paper Bible Prophecy 101 (the coming revision) and NIV as well as NKJV and KJV versions of the Bible.

Several Comments in response to the events of the past week have suggested that we Christians should not associate (or only temporarily associate) with Christians that are in agreement with the Supreme Court’s decision, but rather isolate ourselves with like-minded people.

Having come from a lifetime of legalism where an offense against church doctrine can result in ex-communication, my primary goal is to reach out to those seeking Christ just as I was 15 years ago. Back then, I held many opinions that today I KNOW are un-biblical and sinful.

I find that lately I am writing to a different audience (mature Christians) which was not my original goal. You see, I got saved while on a flight from Dallas to California when a Bible teacher brought the Bible to me in a way I could grasp.

That is what I believe God wants me to do. That is why I attend a Gospel church that has a pastor whose number one goal is to reach those who don’t know Christ intimately, and when he loses members who want a more sophiscated teacher he doesn’t spend time re-thinking his mission.

And maybe I have strayed from that in my own ministry.

Prophecy2

Today’s Post is from Joel Rosenberg’s recent study of Bible prophecy and its intention and purpose.

Joel C. Rosenberg (www.joelrosenberg.com) is a New York Times best-selling and award-winning author of 10 novels and five non-fiction books, with more than 3 million copies sold.

He is also the Founder and Chairman of The Joshua Fund (www.joshuafund.com), a non-profit educational and charitable organization he and his wife launched in 2006 to mobilize Christians to “bless Israel and her neighbors in the name of Jesus, according to Genesis 12:1-3.”

He and his wife have four sons. They made Aliyah in 2014 and now live in Israel and the United States.

I just wanted everybody to know, to you, I forgive you. You took something very precious away from me. I will never talk to her ever again. I will never be able to hold her again. But I forgive you. And have mercy on your soul. You have hurt me. You hurt a lot of people. May God forgive you, and I forgive you.” Daughter of Ethel Lance

forgiveness

In the aftermath of the murders of nine Christians during Bible study, one by one, the families of those killed followed the teaching of Jesus; the beginning of healing is forgiveness.

The Greatest Sermon ever given was early in Jesus’ ministry and speaks of forgiveness. The Jews, who had only been taught by the Pharisees, wanted to know if they were righteous enough to enter the kingdom.

Jesus taught them:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3); when we are broken we are open to God’s providence.

“Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted” (Matthew 5:4); how can one mourn or be comforted if they are consumed with anger and thoughts of retribution?

“Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5); those who are truly humble and gentle.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousnessFor they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6); those who have a spiritual appetite.

“Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy” (Matthew 5:7); those who extend mercy display God’s mercy.

“Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8); the sins of those who have accepted the pardon that Christ provided on the cross are covered by His blood.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God “(Matthew 5:9); the Prince of Peace offers those who forgive the ultimate relationship.

Dylann Roof was granted human forgiveness. The forgiveness that God extends to an unbeliever is conditional upon his repentance.

With Dylann’s statement “I killed nice people” perhaps repentance is next.

Editor and I wish all the Dad’s a blessed Fathers’ day.

SUNDAY POST: Why Ezekiel 38 Precedes Daniel 9

“… the Jewish leadership of the Christian movement called the Church had become divided over the issue of whether Gentiles who were coming into Christianity had to put themselves under the Law first. In other words, did a Gentile have to become a Jew before becoming a Christian? The unspoken question that lurked behind it
