6-15-19, The Holy Bible from front to back is the proclamation of man's sin and his/her need for a Savior. The Lord Jesus Christ came; born of a virgin, died a horrific death and rose from the dead.
This is not fake fantasy or just man's interpretation of a 'story.' After the Lord Jesus arose from the dead He was seen by more than 500 at one time [1 Corinthians 15:6], He had meals with people. All but one of His apostles died barbaric torturous deaths as martyrs for their faith as they refused to recant their testimonies that 'HE WAS THE SON OF GOD.' [Matthew 16:16].
I realize there have been many who interpreted scripture about 'the end of the world' [Matthew 13:40] incorrectly. However, that's not fake news - eventually the world - as we know it - will end.
Proclaiming the truth about the end of the world, sin, death and our eternal destination is an important message; too few share. I must confess that - in 1976 - my eternal soul's path was headed away from God. [Revelation 21:8] Only Jesus can save us from eternal damnation. [John 14:6] I'm eternally grateful I didn't die before my repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus occurred. -- Annette

Although Jesus' disciples had worked all night without catching any fish; Jesus said, 'Let down your nets on right side of the boat.'
They did and what a bonanza of fish! Luke 5:4
"JESUS WENT THROUGHOUT GALILEE, TEACHING IN THEIR SYNAGOGUES, PROCLAIMING THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM, AND HEALING EVERY DISEASE AND SICKNESS AMONG THE PEOPLE. PEOPLE BROUGHT TO HIM ALL WHO WERE ILL WITH VARIOUS DISEASES." Matthew 4:23-24
Surely God will deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly plague. He will cover you with His feathers; under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day. Psalm 91:3-5
Might Save Some
Apostle Paul said: “I have made myself a slave to all, that I might win the more … that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, that I may by all means save some.”
2-18-1996, * -- The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:31–11:1 how to relate to Jews and Greeks so as to win them for Christ. This is not a specifically apostolic or missionary way of life as he meant for all the Corinthian believers [and us] to imitate; his aim was:
- to win others to Christ
- to save others
- to be partaker in the benefits of the gospel himself - Romans 5:9: "Having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath [of God] through Him." Jesus tells us the alternative to the wrath of God; John 3:36 Jesus in us gives us eternal life with Him.
Born again believers in Christ are not "under law" (1 Cor 9:20) not bound to earn our salvation by the law, nor bound to live by the ceremonial, dietary, separation laws of the Old Testament. For example, circumcision, holy days, no ham and catfish, no mixed fibers, no meat offered to idols, and so on. However, as a Christian we are not without God's law (1 Cor 9:21). We must not be worldly minded more than we are spiritually minded. If we are, we've probably crossed the line of the law of Christ. Is your passion for winning your friends and family growing, or is it shrinking as you become all things to them? If it is shrinking, then you are not in the law of Christ.
The sum of the matter: Christ died to set us free from the wrath of God and free from the loveless limits of the" law." Free for love and eternal life that we want to share with our loved ones. O may the Lord grant us to use our freedom to become the servants of all, that we might by all means save some!

A Future You Don’t Want: The Democrats’ Plan for 'Popular Vote'
Eliminate ELECTORAL COLLEGE ...
Only Few States Would Rule Presidential Elections
Majority of Liberal Democrats Live in Few States
6-7-19, David Horowitz -- While you were sleeping, the Democrats (abetted by some deviant Republicans) have been working on a plan that would destroy the diversity of the American political system [allowing ALL voices in the USA to count in the presidential election]. The Dems plan The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, so far have fourteen blue states and the District of Columbia supporting it. This means they are 70% on the way to making their proposal the law of the land. [..snip]
The Founders of America had wisdom to put checks and balances on radical politicians. They were never more needed than now when the country is divided in a way that it has not been seen since the Civil War. Apparently out-of-touch and increasingly out-of-control Democrat Party wants to undermine the constitutional foundations of the nation, push a divisive agenda and move the nation towards a one-party state where only a few states decide who the president will be.

Turkey Op-Ed: How Erdogan is Crushing Civil Society
Getting Off the Democracy ‘Train’
In Turkish society, the courts, police, intelligence services, Islamic mosques, public education, health systems and the media are all, in one way or another, subject to Erdogan’s AK  party’s supreme influence.
One example is the use of legislation that penalizes insults to the head of state. Turkey’s criminal code has contained such a law since 1926, but before 2014 it was rarely applied before Erdogan was elected President. Example: A woman in Izmir was recently sentenced to 11 months in prison for a rude hand gesture directed at Mr Erdogan. There is no freedom of the press in Turkey; in recent months the assault on press freedom involved not just threats and spurious judicial procedures, but outright violence. [..snip]
Most supporters of the AK also feel that the allegations of corruption against the ruling party cannot be dismissed out of hand. To many, Erdogan’s furious persecution of this “enemy within” is a way of deflecting attention from the AK party’s own plans for capturing the state. Mr Onderoglu of Reporters Without Borders said:
“They are not just crushing what exists. They are building new media, a new civil society and a new deep state.”
[Note: and THIS [Turkey] is the trusted source of all the hysteria over the disappearance and possible death/murder of Khashoggi. Ridiculous. More here —Ed.]
 AK Party: The Justice and Development Party [AK Parti] Founder Recep Erdogan in 2001. It developed from the conservative tradition of Turkey's Ottoman past and its Islamic identity, the party is the largest in Turkey. More here
