Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

Sign of the Cross

I feel the need to talk about a subject near and dear to my spirit today. It is regarding that cross...the one Jesus Christ died on and the one evident throughout our American Republic.

The U.S. flag, "Old Glory" reminds all Americans how we started, the bloodshed that was paid for the freedom to wave her wherever and whenever we wish in a free society. The freedom to trample her underfoot, sadly.

The cross, on the other hand, reminds the entire world that there is freedom found in no other name given among men, the name of Jesus Christ. Christians, and by that I mean, born again in the spirit Christians which is truly the only kind of Christian there is, find strength, hope and faith in that cross, the symbol of our righteousness.

And yet, and yet, people wear the sign of my salvation as bling. Musicians, artists, celebreties of all ilk as well as every day people wittingly or unwittingly blaspheme the sign of my cross. When you live like the devil people, and publicly identify yourself as a christian by wearing that cross, you bring disrespect to yourself and to that cross.

There is a battle being fought out as we speak for the rights of Patriots who have fought and died in our nation's wars to continually be remembered by the sign of the cross...the Supreme Court weighs these decisions even as we speak regarding a cross erected in the middle of the Mojave Desert, normally only seen by traveling from the Marine Corps base at 29 Palms, California to Las Vegas which some Marines due on weekends....that cross was erected by WWI vets for the vets of all wars and guess who is protesting...ACLU and all manner of limp wristed liberals.

For gangsta rappers, and other assorted punks and hoods to run around displaying the cross as bling is atrocious and offensive to me as a Christian...but even more offensive is the following...

Last night, I happened to catch a democratic congresswoman from California on Fox News...didn't really pay attention to her repititious ramblings of the democratic talking points for the day.....but couldn't help but notice that cross hanging around Loretta Sanchez's neck...

When a person is a democrat or votes as a democrat they embrace the party of death...the party of abortion. In the old testament of the bible, specifically in Leviticus, we learn alot about the old Jewish custom of sacrificing their children to the pagan god, Molech and God declared stoning deaths as appropriate for those who would sacrifice their children and for those who would stand by and say about it yourself.

In the new testament, God sort of pretty much tells you that if you believe on his son, Jesus Christ, then indeed Loretta Sanchez etal., your body is not your own at all to do with as you please....."What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

Thank you St. Paul for giving us those spirit-filled words in 1st Corinthians 6:19-20. I am pretty sure it is time for people of God to stand up and say so...while those lukewarm, will be left laying as 'wheat chaff' in the fields not fit to be harvested.

Before you think that I am a catholic because I used the term St. Paul, I must tell you that I am not but I do know some catholics who are actually born again and therefore Christians...even charismatic and pentecostal...amazing, huh?

In summary...Christians are not violent and we do not react like our muslim brothers in the world who take the slightest offense whenever someone displays depictions of Mohammed, as in Denmark.

In the spirit of diversity, in the spirit of getting along with one another, can you keep from wearing a cross around your neck if you are not a christian...honestly it is a slap in the face to believers.
