“ I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

Founder of Minuteman Project Jim Gilchrist, endorsed Huckabee today

This is a big news, I believe, because some are challenging how strong Mike would be on illegal immigration. The Minuteman Project is a movement to help secure our borders and this endorsement speaks volumes about the credibility of Mike Huckabee's position on illegal immigration and border enforcement, in particular.

If you haven't seen it already, Mike released his immigration plan recently:

Mitt Romney endorsed Huckabee in 2005

http://www.swtimes.com/articles/2007/12/11/week_in_review/news/sunday/news04.txt

I agree with what Mitt said in 2005, Mike Huckabee would make a fine president! :-)

The Arkansas News Bureau reported in August 2005 that Romney said Huckabee would have the support of many Massachusetts Republicans if the Arkansan were to run for president in 2008.

While at the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion for a meeting about health care, Romney demurred when asked whether a presidential race was in his future but had nice things to say about his host.

“Who knows what the future will hold?” Romney said in 2005. “Most likely, we’ll all stay as governors or find other offices, but we need to make sure that we have a strong person who can take the baton from President Bush, and Gov. Huckabee is certainly one of those individuals. He'd make a fine president.”

You can't win for losin!

"Mike Huckabee Defends Role in Parole of Convicted Rapist Who Went on to Kill"

I must say that Mike cannot win with the media. First they attack him because he is tough on crime and supports the death penalty then this breaks out and they skewer him over an issue that he had neither the authority nor foresight to prevent. This is truly an unfortunate incident however, is he too tough on crime or too lenient?

Another blog from Randy Alcorn

This latest blog is another good one, in my opinion, but some of it may not sit well with everyone. The blog entry I am referring to is from November 19, 2007.
http://randyalcorn.blogspot.com

He explains why he is able to endorse a candidate even though he is the head of a non-profit ministry. That is, he is not endorsing Huckabee as the head of the ministry but as a private citizen. He makes a number of other good points, which would great for all pastors and ministry leaders to read and consider.

He also explains why he can't support the other candidates. He shows why Romney cannot be trusted, he previously explained why Guliani is unacceptable, he reveals that John McCain is for the use of embryonic stem cells, and shows Fred Thompson's shortcomings (this may be where the fur starts to fly).

Whether you agree with all that he says, I believe it is worth the time to read and consider.

Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson has won the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee, the largest U.S. antiabortion group,

The announcement is scheduled to be made Tuesday in Washington D.C.
The announcement first was reported by The Politico. Click here to read the blog posting on The Politico.
Thomspon, speaking Monday to reporters in Indianola, Iowa, initially was cool to talking about the endorsement before it was announced, but shortly found a way to talk about the benefits.
"I would not ever make any statement about anybody endorsing me until they've endorsed me...I can't respond to the word on the street," Thompson said.
But answering a follow-up question what a pro-life group's endorsement would mean, Thompson said: "I've had a 100 percent pro-life voting record in the United States Senate ... and I think they know that. And that's the way I'd govern if I was President. ... So it (the endorsement) would be a perefctly natural thing and very helpful to me I would think."
/**/

The endorsement follows a series of heavy-hitting endorsements for Republicans from conservative groups in recent days, and is an important grab for Thompson who has been struggling to make his late-bloomer campaign more competitive.
Last Wednesday, GOP frontrunner Rudy Giuliani snagged an endorsement from evangelical Christian leader Pat Robertson: an announcement that drowned-out what would have been a big nod for Arizona Sen. John McCain on any other day, the backing of Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas. Brownback has long been a favorite of conservative Christians, and threw his support behind McCain after dropping his own candidacy last month.
And earlier in the week, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney received an endorsement from another conservative leader, Paul Weyrich, founding president of The Heritage Foundation and cofounder of the Moral Majority.
Thompson's voting record is strongly in favor of abortion opponents, but his response to a 1994 questionnaire that surfaced earlier this year on abortion rights raised some questions over how strongly he stood against abortion.
Responding to Project Vote Smart prior to his 1994 election win, Thompson said he supported legal abortion in the first trimester in all cases — a view not held by abortion opponents.
But Thompson's other responses were more favorable: he said he believed there should be parental notification for mothers under the age of 18 who are seeking abortions; he supported state-imposed waiting periods and opposed federal funding for clinics that provide abortions. He also said abortions should not be covered under federal health care plans, and states, rather than Congress, should control abortion laws.
As a lawyer, Thompson also once represented an abortion-rights group, the the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association.
IN an August interview with The Associated Press, Thompson said his work to represent the group was separate from his beliefs.
"It has nothing to do with one's political views," he said. "Lawyering is a profession and it's also a business."
FOX News Carl Cameron and Cristina Corbin contributed to this report.

Rebelution

You probably know about Joshua Harris, but he has two brothers who are also making a difference. Check out this excellent site:
http://www.therebelution.com


Here is an explanation from the site about what Rebelution is about:

The official definition of the 'rebelution' is "a teenage rebellion against the low expectations of an ungodly culture." When you look around today, in terms of godly character and practical competence, our culture does not expect much of us young people. We are not only expected to do very little that is wise or good, but we're expected to do the opposite. Our media-saturated youth culture is constantly reinforcing lower and lower standards and expectations.

The word 'rebelution' is a combination of the words "rebellion" and "revolution." So it carries a sense of an uprising against social norms. But in this case, it's not a rebellion against God-established authority, but against the low expectations of our society. It's a refusal to be defined by our ungodly, rebellious culture. Actually, we like to think of it as rebelling against rebellion.

And it's exciting, because the Rebelution has really become a type of counter-cultural youth movement among Christian young people from around the country, and even around the world, who are not only rejecting the lies and the corruption of media-saturated youth culture, but they're returning to biblical and historical levels of character and competence.

In 1 Timothy 4:12, the Apostle Paul tells Timothy, "Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." In other words, as young people we are called to be exemplary in all areas of life. Our generation is falling incredibly short of that calling. Instead of serving as the launching pad of life, the teen years are seen as a vacation from responsibility. We call it the "myth of adolescence." And the Rebelution is all about busting that myth.

The battle cry of The Rebelution is just three words, but it's an explosive concept: Do Hard Things. That's it. And "do hard things" is a mentality. It's a mentality that flies right in the face of our culture's low expectations. The world says, "You're young, have fun!" It tells us to "obey your thirst" and "just do it." Or it tells us, "You're great! You don't need to exert yourself." But those kinds of mindsets sabotage biblical character and competence.

"Do Hard Things" is just the opposite. It's how we build character and competence. It won't drop to meet the low expectations, it won't just do what comes easily, and it won't become complacent. It applies no matter who you are or what level you're on, because there's always something harder to do, something that will take you outside your comfort zone and cause you to grow.

The Rebelution is made up of three fundamental parts. We've talked about two of them: character and competence. The third one is collaboration. It's not enough for us to be individual exceptions. It's not enough for us to try to ignore the culture. We have to create a counter-culture. The way we do that is by networking, exhorting, and encouraging one another in the fight. By God's grace, that's what The Rebelution has become. And when you have a community of young people mutually committed to doing hard things in their teen years for the glory of God, that's an incredibly powerful thing.

Huck can win in Iowa!-According to Dick Morris

A STEADFAST CONSERVATIVE, HUCKABEE CAN WIN IN IOWABy DICK MORRISPublished on TheHill.com on November 7, 2007.Printer-Friendly VersionMike Huckabee is on a roll. Nationally, I just won my bet with Bill O’Reilly when he broke 10 percent in the latest CNN poll. And in Iowa, he is now running second. Mitt Romney is in the lead at 27 percent, according to the latest American Research survey, with Huckabee nipping at his heels at 19 percent. Rudy Giuliani is in third at 16. John McCain still has a residue of 14 percent support left, and Fred Thompson, fading fast, is down to 8 percent.So Huckabee is within striking distance. When Perrier had to cope with the scandal about the alleged adulteration of its product, it was evident that all the beverage had going for it was its purity. It had no taste. Compromise its purity and it was sunk. Romney is in much the same situation. His candidacy is based on his being an alternative to Giuliani, conservative on social issues. But if his purity is compromised, he could be in trouble.

But Romney was once pro-life. Then he ran in Massachusetts and became pro-choice. Then he decided to run in the Republican primary for president and he became pro-life again. His flip-flop-flip may get him in big trouble in Iowa.Rudy is, of course, pro-choice. McCain, rightly or wrongly, was criticized for hurting the social conservative movement by limiting its ability to spend money on its pet causes in the McCain-Feingold legislation. And Fred Thompson lobbied for a pro-choice abortion-rights group in the early 1990s and has been squishy on the issue ever since.That leaves Mike Huckabee as the only pure pro-life candidate, a social conservative who has never moved to the left.Huckabee could be vulnerable on his tax record in Arkansas, but his support for the Fair Tax likely wipes away that issue.
But Huckabee has no money. Yet, despite a total absence of advertising, he has risen steadily in Iowa from single digits to double digits to second place. Indeed, his lack of funding may be creating a reverse chic, attracting voters who are turned off by the massive hard sell of the other campaigns.So what happens if Huckabee keeps rising and wins in Iowa? It likely sets up a three-way contest in New Hampshire, with Huckabee, Romney and Giuliani facing off against one another. Romney has the money. Rudy has the stardom. And Huckabee would have the momentum.This all may be a pipe dream, but in a caucus state, where turnout is low and enthusiasm is at a premium, Huckabee’s demonstrated ability to generate passion among his followers would stand him in good stead.Remember what happened in Ames, Iowa, where Romney won the straw poll based largely on his ability to write $35 checks to enroll his voters in the paid admission-only event. Huckabee finished a strong second with 18 percent of the vote even though his voters had to pay their own way. Huckabee said, “I can’t afford to buy you. I can’t even afford to rent you.”And at the Values Convention, Romney once again papered the house with paid-for absentee voters who enrolled for $1 each and voted for Mitt. Huckabee, with no money, addressed the gathering and stirred such passion that he swept the votes of most who were there and finished second, again.Right now Iowa looks like a Romney rout. But Huckabee could surprise everybody before the votes are counted.

Mike Huckabee now at 14% nationally

Today's Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll shows Mike Huckabee with 14% support nationally. This is up from 6% on 10/1 and puts him in third place behind Guliani and Thompson and ahead of McCain and Romney. He has really come on strong lately.

While Huckabee is still a long shot he is gaining momentum and I believe that if people can believe that he really is electable there is a base of support that can swell up to lead him to the Republican nomination.

I wouldn't support just any religious leader to be President, but Mike has 10+ years experience as Governor of Arkansas and is a man of conviction and compassion.

If you are interested in helping with Huckabee's campaign, next to the official Huckabee site, I recommend Huck's Army Forum - http://forum.hucksarmy.com

Also today, Randy Alcorn posted an endorsement of Huckabee on his blog:

IChThUS IMPRIMIS

“In the ongoing effort to take God out of everything, the Department of Veterans Affairs has stepped forward to do their fair share. Prayers at school? Forget about it. Saying ‘Under God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance? The courts keep trying to remove the words. Now, the federal government wants to remove God from your burial ceremony. Cradle to grave with no faith references? That is not the foundation that built our country. At issue is the flag-folding ceremony at military funerals. When the flag that has draped the departed’s casket is folded, there is a traditional recitation which accompanies each of the thirteen folds. The Veterans Affairs bureaucracy decided last month to ban the recitations after a complaint was filed following a service at Riverside National Cemetery in California... This seems like one more attempt to take our Judeo-Christian heritage out of a government that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. When the attempt created an uproar, the government folks decided to ‘clarify’ the matter. In other words, they got caught and now are backtracking. Just like with other attempts to remove God and Christian references from public life, we as citizens must always be on guard. Only through our actions and voices can we stop such activities. As soon as we’ll let one pass, many more will follow.” —Bobby Eberle

Wickedness cont....

Due to the supposed "separation of Church and state", having given my spiritual devotion, I will now give my political insight using the same verses above.
There are some political parties and politicians ( who for fear of "slander and libel?" shall remain nameless) that seem to believe that Christians are mere idiots and are easily duped by the facades of religious trappings that they create at whim. However, as a Christian, yes even with a sinful heart, a Christ follower none the less, it is easily recognized when there is a wolf among the sheep. If you will only take a moment to observe closely, you will notice that there appears to be long hair rather than wool, even notice an elongated tail instead of a short bob tail, and don't miss the snarling smile full of sharp jagged teeth, dripping venomous drool amongst us.
Now, I do not partake in the watching of vampire movies and this is not a mere hallucination but there seems to be a few foxes in the henhouse.(Noted by the absence of feathers and wearing the above marks of identification.)
I do not want to seem somewhat alarmist, neither do I want to skew the intended purpose of the Scriptures referenced above. However, there are people vying for power that will affect every area of our lives. We have been given opportunity to select to an extant who they will be (keeping in mind that God is sovereign). I believe that it is important as members of the community to be the salt and light as well as supporting one another in the political arena. We are called to be Stewards and called to be the head and not the tail. I am not saying that we should drop everything and all become politicians, but we can observe what is transpiring, what people are saying and doing, hold it up to God's Word and then say, I do or don't want to support that, then cast a vote in that direction. I know that you can't and I can't but WE can. If God be for us than who can be against us?
With that being said, I would like to point you to a very interesting article. Take a moment to peruse it. But I am warning you not to be duped. Then post a comment on this post.

Have a great day!...unless you have other plans. Remember, It's still God's Green Earth!

Faith is the Foundation For Freedom
In His Service,
Jerod

The Heart is Desperately wicked Jer. 17:9

Good Morning brothers and sisters! It truly is a Great day on God's Green Earth. I opened the scriptures this morning and began in Isaiah. By the time I got to the following passage, I felt compelled to share this with you and maybe begin a lively discourse.

Isaiah 5:
18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: 19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! 20 Woe unto them that call F32 evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight F33! 22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 24 Therefore as the fire F34 devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

After reading the above verses, I was reminded about the following in which Jesus gave a very enlightening discourse on the identifying the condition of the human heart.

Matthew 12:
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Even as a Christian, I am prone to evil thoughts emanating from my heart yet by God's grace I am somewhat restrained to act upon them. I am actually constrained by God's Holy Spirit to war against these impulses. Sometimes I may lose the battle yet I am assured by God's Word that He has won the war and we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus!
See Romans 8:37

(Hebrews 11:6) Over the years, I have had the pleasure of meeting many humble yet great servants of God. You may never have read their names in the papers nor may you ever meet them until we enter eternity but nevertheless they have been used by our Lord for His purposes.
