buriel2Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “When Muslims die, family members don’t turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body. In Islam, death is handled much differently.

Relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe. Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritual, known as Ghusl.

Before scrubbing the skin with soap and water, family members press down on the abdomen to excrete fluids still in the body. A mixture of camphor and water is used for a final washing. Then, family members dry off the body and shroud it in white linens.

Again, washing the bodies of the dead in this way is considered a collective duty for Muslims, especially in Muslim nations. Failure to do so is believed to leave the deceased “impure” and jeopardizes the faithful’s ascension into Paradise (unless he died in jihad; then no Ghusl is required).

Before the body is buried, Muslims attending the funeral typically pass a common bowl for use in ablution or washing of the face, feet and hands, compounding the risk of infection.

Though these customs are prescribed by Shariah law.”

Opinion: As Paul Harvey used to say, “Now you know the rest of the story.”

Breitbart: “Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun.

Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”

Opinion: With the election two weeks away, the president is clear about his intentions to bring Mexico and the rest of Central America to the US as voting citizens in violation of immigration laws and the Constitution.

Over the past three years we have been watching as five nation- killer transformations have emerged

  • Obamacare
  • Amnesty
  • Same-sex marriage
  • Israel’s Two-State Solution
  • Demolition of the US military

There is no nation resembling a super-power America in Bible prophecy.

SRX_HITCHING_POST_t620Spokane Spokesman-Review: “The owners of the Hitching Post wedding chapel filed a federal lawsuit against the City of Coeur d’Alene Friday, claiming that the city is unconstitutionally forcing them to violate their religious beliefs by performing same-sex marriages.

The city passed an ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation in 2013. It applies to housing, employment and “public accommodation.” Religious entities are exempt from the ordinance. But in May city attorney Warren Wilson told The Spokesman-Review that The Hitching Post, which is a for-profit business, likely would be required to follow the ordinance.

Owners Donald and Evelyn Knapp say in the lawsuit that they believe marriage is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman.”

Opinion: Mark it down. October 6, 2014 is the date that the battle against the Bible and pastors who teach it became a hot war, and while the Hitching post is a for – profit business the owners are guided by the same Christian principles as many Churches.

On October 6, the Supreme Court turned away appeals from five states seeking to prohibit gay marriage. This action effectively legalized same-sex marriage in those states, and likely others, but also left the issue unresolved nationally.

For a church to deny same-sex marriage will involve costly litigation, severely damaging church budgets followed by a test of the 501c3 tax exemption.

I’ve been on the board of a small, non-denomination Bible-teaching church and have come to know how fragile the balance sheet can be. Tort litigation alone would be devastating to our church’s survival.

We can be confident that God is in control and Satan will only be permitted to operate his schemes for a season.

Perilous times (2 Timothy 3:1-5) indeed.
