Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible 14 September 2005 RICK WARREN SPEAKS ABOUT PURPOSE AT UNITED NATIONS (Edited by DCB) "NEW YORK – After weeks of bitter debate shed many of U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan's most ambitious goals to tackle poverty and reform the United Nations, reactions to the hard fought compromise text for the U.N. World summit declaration ranged from measured satisfaction to downright disappointment. Amid thick tensions present earlier yesterday, ‘Purpose-Driven’ Pastor Rick Warren told U.N. dignitaries and delegates to lay aside their worries for a moment and focus on the meaning of existence." Warren was speaking to "…an interfaith prayer breakfast on the morning of Sept. 13…" when he "…made no claims to know everything but comforted the delegates by telling them to trust God." He told them that "Whenever you get stressed out just remember God is God, and you're not." "At the end of the two-hour breakfast, Warren prayed for the Spirit of God to lead each person in their work. ‘It doesn't matter how much you accomplish," said Warren. "If at the end of the day you don't know God a little bit more and you don't love God a little bit more, you have just wasted your day.’"

Editor’s Comment: Luke 6:26 "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you!"

Daily Telegraph 21 September 2005- US EASES HAMAS OPPOSITION (Edited by DCB) "THE United States signalled today an easing of opposition to the participation of the militant group Hamas in Palestinian elections and urged Israel to cooperate in organising the polls." The US Secretary of State said she believes that "…we have to give the Palestinians some room for the evolution of their political process." However, "Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has threatened to withhold all cooperation in election preparations if Hamas…is allowed to run."

Editor’s Comment: Esther 3:10 "And the king took his ring from his hand, and gave it unto Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the Jews' enemy." HAMAS GUNMEN PARADE IN GAZA 19 September 2005 (Edited by DCB) – After Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza "Thousands of Hamas terrorists paraded with weapons through the streets of Gaza City on Sunday in the group's largest show of force in years, defying Palestinian efforts to ban public arms displays." "Hamas leaders vowed to continue fighting Israel as tens of thousands cheered and waved the group's green flags and masked gunmen hoisted assault rifles, rockets and anti-tank missiles. " ‘We will not rest and will not abandon the path of Jihad and martyrdom as long as one inch of our land remained in the hands of the Jews,’ said Raed Saed, a senior Hamas leader in Gaza City, using the Arabic term for holy war. ‘We are celebrating our victory in Gaza and now we are headed toward Jerusalem, Nablus, Akko, Haifa, the Galilee and all of Palestine,’ he said."

Editor’s Comment: Esther 8: 1, 2 "On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her. And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman." A BREATHING SPACE (Edited by DCB). This is from the Uniting Church in Australia web site and shows how far into apostasy this denomination has gone. "Breathing in the deep breath of God, Breathing out God’s renewing breath into the world. Many of us struggle through the working week and long for a weekend in which to find space and take stock of our spiritual side. The National Assembly’s Gospel and Gender Working Group is offering ‘A Breathing Space’ as an opportunity to re-connect with the feminine face of God." PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL DISTRICT TO DEFEND POLICY ON INTELLIGENT DESIGN (Edited by DCB) "The Dover Area School district in Pennsylvania will soon defend its policy to require ninth grade students to hear a short statement about ‘intelligent design’ before biology lessons on evolution." "The school adopted the policy in October 2004, after which teachers were required to read a statement that says intelligent design is different that Darwin’s theory of evolution and refers students to a text book on intelligent design to get more in formation." " ‘All the Dover school board did was allow students to get a glimpse of a controversy that is really boiling over in the scientific community,’ said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, which is defending the school district, according to the Associated Press." "The civil trial is set to take place on Sept. 26 and will only be the latest chapter in a long-running legal debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools."

Editor’s Comment: Psalm 8:3 "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained." Psalm 19: 1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork." Psalm 14:1 "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."

Dubbo Daily Liberal 12 September 2005 BOOMERS HIT THEIR 50S BUT STILL KIDS AT HEART (Edited by DCB) "Hedonism is alive and well among Australia's free-spirited over-50s, according to a new report. And while 50-somethings are as liberal and free-spirited as they were in the 1970s, the nation's 20-somethings are more conservative than their parents were at their age, and in some cases even now, in matters of drugs, sex and divorce. The 2005 Clemenger Report, titled Tomorrow's Parents Today, is a longitudinal study spanning four decades of Australians." "Among the findings, only 27 per cent of young people today thought marijuana should be legalised, compared with almost 40 per cent of yesterday's young people. Almost a quarter believed prostitution should be legalised, as opposed to 60 per cent of their parents when asked in 1978." Clemenger’s managing director said "Today's parents are the generation who grew older without growing up, while their children are those who have grown up, without growing older."

Editor’s Comments: Titus 2: 2, 3 "That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness…" PROTESTANT-CATHOLIC RELATIONS TENSE OVER GERMAN BIBLE REVISION 14 September 2005 (Edited by DCB) "German Protestants have rejected a joint project to revise the standard German translation of the Bible with the Roman Catholic Church last Thursday, furthering tensions between Protestants and Catholics." The dispute "…was provoked as the Vatican intended to revise the standard German Bible according to its official directive. Despite Protestants’ favor for original Biblical texts in ancient Hebrew and Greek, the Vatican requires the revision to conform to a Latin translation – traditionally the official language of reference in Catholicism." "German Catholics and Protestants produced the current standard German Bible in the 1980s and have long used it in ecumenical services." The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Daily, "defended Protestants, saying they had made concessions to Catholics for years in the Bible project and could no longer let themselves be ‘dictated to by Rome.’"

Editor’s Comment: Once the door of compromise is opened with Rome there is no shutting it! Ian Paisley said in Protestant Heritage Part I – Its Foundation that "Let us not be ignorant of Rome’s devices. She fears the Word of God; hence her determined efforts to destroy its circulation and to discredit its eternal truths." If the Roman Church cannot halt the distribution of the Scriptures she will seek the corruption of the Scriptures. The Dean Burgon Society’s Statement on the Bible aptly says among other things that "We believe that the Texts which are the closest to the original autographs of the Bible are the Traditional Masoretic Hebrew Text for the Old Testament, and the traditional Greek Text for the New Testament underlying the King James Version (as found in "The Greek Text Underlying The English Authorized Version of 1611")." and that "God Intended That His Word be Translated Accurately in All Languages. Without question, God intended that His Word be translated accurately into all languages to fulfill the Great Commission to preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15)." This will not be done through ecumenical Bible Societies!

Yours against apostasy and for Biblical Truth,
