CHRISTIAN OPINION How Should the Church Respond in Perilous Times?
By Mat Staver    l    Charisma News
The times in which we live are  unprecedented in the history of  America. Every generation thinks the  cultural decline is worse than in prior times. These  times are clearly unprecedented—at least in  American history. But the threats we face today  are not unprecedented in Judeo-Christian history,  a point I will address later.  Let me give just two examples. For the first  time in world history, the citizens of a country are  being forced to participate in genocide.....

By Erik Stanley
     By now, you have heard the U.S. Supreme  Court issued its long-anticipated decision that  imposed a 50-state same-sex marriage mandate.  Pastors and churches have exhibited a great  degree of uncertainty preceding this moment,  wondering what the effect will be on their  ministry.

Supreme Court’s Same Sex Marriage Decision is Judicial Tyranny and ‘A Threat to American Democracy’ .... Expect Christian Persecution
By Thomas More
  June 26th, a committee of five un-elected  lawyers ignoring the expressed will of an  overwhelming majority of Americans, ruled that  the definition of marriage as the union of one  man and one women, which has existed for  thousands of years, is unconstitutional. In the  process the majority dispelled the concept “that  we are a government of laws, not of men.”  Four Justices wrote stinging dissents.  Justice Scalia wrote that the majority opinion is  “a threat to American democracy.”  Scalia went  on: “This is a naked judicial claim to  legislative—indeed, super-legislative—power; a  claim fundamentally at odds with our system of  government….  
Ex-Lesbian Shares How She Discovered Freedom in Christ

Sometimes the hurt in our hearts cuts so  deeply that even hope seems impossible. I am  writing this because I have been at that place in my  life, where I felt I was without love and without  hope, and I want my story to be an example for all  who feel that they are in a similar place.  I know that love can be found and hope can  be renewed, but only if we turn to the One who  truly loves us. I want you to know God loves you!  There are no ifs, ands or buts. He loves you no  matter who you are, no matter what you've done,  no matter where you've been. Nothing will ever  ever change His love for you.  Do you know He sees  your tears and cries with  you? He feels every hurt you  endure as if the pain were  His own. The shortest verse  in the English Bible is one of  the most powerful: "Jesus wept." (John 11:35)  Standing outside the tomb of his friend Lazarus,  the emotions spilled over, and Jesus audibly cried.  Jesus weeps with us. The tears prove He cares.  And in moments of personal or national pain,  knowing God cares is far more important than  knowing why He cares. He doesn't say buck up; be  a big boy; don't cry; or come now, it doesn't hurt.....
So What Do Christians Do Now .......
By Jim DeMint
Conservatives and Christians are reeling after  two outrageous decisions last week by the Supreme  Court. In one case they reinterpreted Obamacare so  that “established by the state” magically meant “or  the federal government.” In another, they redefined  marriage—even though nothing in our Constitution  gives the court the authority to do that.  What do we do now?  The Obamacare case is the simpler of the  two when it comes to next steps. While the court  refused to enforce the plain meaning of the text,  Congress can still vote to repeal Obamacare and  replace it with patient-focused, market-based  healthcare reforms that will truly serve all  Americans. Obamacare remains unworkable,  unaffordable and unpopular. Congress must act to  repeal it.  Responding to the marriage decision will be  more complicated. It will require a commitment to  the long haul. This bad decision cannot be remedied  in any single bill, or vote or election cycle—though  all of those can certainly soften the blow.  The problem is that right when American  citizens were in the middle of crucially important  deliberations about marriage policy, five unelected  judges shut down that democratic process and  declared the conversation closed....

We all face challenges in life, and  sometimes they can be hard to handle. But did you  know that God has a battle plan we can follow that  will guarantee victory every time? The key is  finding out what our battle position is so we can  see what God will do for us when we fight the way  He wants us to fight. In 2 Chronicles chapter 20, there is a  powerful example of how God can fight our battles.  There   were   three   enemies   coming   against  Jehoshaphat and the people of Israel: the  Moabites, the Ammonites and the Meunites. Verse 3 tells us that when            Jehoshaphat heard about this t                                 rouble, his immediate response                          was fear. This is understandable                         because our first natural response                                            to any bad news is usually a feeling                                               of fear. And what we choose to do                                                at that point is very important.
