TFOT 7-1-15 Pastor Brad Atkins and Charl Van Wyk – church shootings

 

Pastor Atkins of Powdersville First Baptist  is working with a group of pastors to guide the Charleston, SC community through the healing process after a gunman martyred 9 church members at AME Emanuel Church.   Thankfully, several of these pastors had met just days earlier at an Issachar training of The American Renewal Project; a project to teach pastors how to lead in their communities.     There are no surprises on God’s day planner and He was filling the roster of His care team.   In 1993, Pastor Charl Van Wyk survived the St. James massacre in South Africa when terrorist came in with grenades, automatic weapons and opened fire on the congregation of thousand plus.  Unlike the AME members, Charl was able to return fire with his .38 special snub-nose revolver, ultimately saving lives as the terrorists fled.   Both pastors share the dangers facing Christians today and the responsibility to defend ourselves Biblically while discussing the cultural and political issues that feed these situations.     They instruct congregations how to protect themselves and communities how to prevent these needless crimes.

Dr. Marshall Foster celebrates 800 years of the Magna Carta and its impact

 

Respected historian Dr. Marshall Foster of www.worldhistoryinstitute.com discusses the Magna Carta, June 15, 1215 as it turns 800 years old. What it meant then and still signifies today.   Did you know it was revered as a sacred document with scriptural foundations?   That it was the first written restrictions on the powers of government?  That the freedoms and liberties expressed in the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence are extensions of the Magna Carta, and said to be thoroughly Christian?   That our Founders weren’t rebelling against England they were preserving the individual liberties enshrined in this early document signed by King John at Runnymede, June 15, 1215.

NC RFRA – Attorneys Tami Fitzgerald, NC Values Coalition, and Austin Nimocks , of Alliance Defending Freedom -TFOT – 4/29/15

TFOT – 4/29/15    Religious Liberty is under attack in America like never before.  Though leaders in Indiana lost sight and ‘fail’ short in a law protecting religious liberty, North Carolinians are working to establish just such a law to reassert the First Amendment rights that so many have taken for granted and allowed to be trampled.  Today’s guests Tami Fitzgerald (North Carolina Values Coalition) and Austin Nimocks (Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel) .  Listen and learn – are the citizens in your state protected?  As small business owners and now pastors are being threatened – whether agnostic, atheist, or evangelic –  it’s time to STAND – without 1A rights you will lose the ability to express your views, right to association, or support a cause.  RFRA puts power back in your pocket with your dollar through capitalism rather than government dictating who can/can’t do business according to the beliefs they determine.
