...And the pulpits are silent
by Coach Dave Daubenmire
“For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?” Jeremiah 5:26-31

Despite what the political parties would like you to believe, the problem in America is not the politicians; it is the pulpits. I hate to break the news to you, but most of America’s pulpits are filled with cowardly men. They are a shame to the Christ they claim to serve.
Harsh words, aren’t they? Not the type of thing that will make any friends in this “cheap-Grace” culture in which we live. But that’s okay. I’m not looking to make friends.
I am about fed-up with what I see. How did we ever get such man-pleasing leaders? All that our forefathers held dear is being destroyed before our very eyes, and hardly a peep from the pulpit. They don’t want to hear it. It’s the pulpiteers that I am talking about. They are concerned with being ” too harsh”; they tell me that “Jesus is in control,” that they are not “called” to fight evil, and that “we should pray for our enemies.”
Where have these guys come from? What we need is a return of the Voice of God thundering through the prophets standing in America’s pulpits. Not the prissy Purpose Driven drivel passing as the Gospel today. The feminized-preachers of today cannot hold a candle to those who ushered in The Great Awakening, which led to the American Revolution and the abolition of slavery — two world-changing events spearheaded by the pulpit.
Listen to the message of America’s premiere preachers today. Rick Warren and his Purpose Driven Life have infiltrated the Church. Over 400,000 pastors have attended his conferences, and over 40 million of his books have been sold. Wikipedia tells us “Since September 2002, over 30,000 congregations, corporations, and sports teams across the United States have participated in a ’40 Days of Purpose’ emphasis. A May 2005 survey of American pastors and ministers conducted by George Barna asked Christian leaders to identify what books were the most influential on their lives and ministries.” The Purpose Driven Life was the most frequent response. Today’s Christians are more familiar with the words of Warren than the Words of Jesus. Thousands of America’s churches have used it in their Bible studies, and thousands of preachers preach Warren’s message.
Joel Osteen was voted Most Influential Christian in 2006. His preaching style focuses on “the goodness of God rather than sin.” He is a self-described “Life-coach” and “thinks that there are probably others better qualified, or more gifted for explaining Bible verses. Osteen explains that he tries to teach Biblical principles in a simple way, emphasizing the power of love and a positive attitude…Presently, Osteen and several Lakewood Church team members travel across the nation, presenting programs in large stadiums to a paying public.” (Source: Wikipedia.) He has sold millions of books to millions of feel-good Christians.
While our nation is killing babies, our schools are indoctrinating Christian-kids in Secular Humanism, and “Truth has fallen in the streets,” our preachers are attending church-growth seminars, using ‘self-help” books to supplement the Bible, and chasing after the butts and bucks. They are fiddling while the nation burns, building their church rather than Christ’s Kingdom.

…and the pulpits are silent

From a bygone era, the sound from the pulpit rumbles throughout the ages:
“Could a mariner sit idle if he heard the drowning cry?
Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die?
Could a fireman sit idle, let men burn and give no hand?
Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you DAMNED?” – – Leonard Ravenhill
“Churches don’t need new members half so much as they need the old bunch made over. There wouldn’t be so many non-church goers if there were not so many non-going churches. Too many churches are little more than four walls and a roof.”- Billy Sunday

The voice from the pulpit today sings a different song. “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:31.

Truth, justice, and the American way are a thing of the past.

None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.” Isaiah 59:4.

And tragically, the pulpits are silent.

Courtroom Drama ~ Judge Attacks Attorney

Source: BizPac Review
Video: Hot-head judge loses it! Gets down off bench to violently attack attorney
Brevard County Judge John Murphy had one nasty temper-tantrum before ultimately beating up a public defender just outside the Florida courtroom Monday, according to local news reports and a pretty wild video.
The scuffle began when Murphy allegedly tried to pressure seasoned public defender Andrew Weinstock to convince his client to waive his right to a speedy trial, according to WFTV.
After what appeared to be some normal legal chatter, the judge became angry and sparks flew.
According to the video, the exchange led to the age-old dare to “take this outside”:
“You know, if I had a rock I would throw it at you right now,” Murphy told the attorney from the bench. “Stop pissing me off. Just sit down.”
“You know I’m the public defender. I have a right to be here and I have a right to stand and represent my client,” Weinstock replied.
The two can then be seen on video walking out to the hallway on Murphy’s suggestion.
“If you want to fight, let’s go out back and I’ll just beat your ass,” Murphy told Weinstock on the way out of the courtroom.
The camera captured those who were left in the courtroom listening to the sound of yelling (obscenities) and loud thuds from the hallway. They clapped when it was over.
“The attorney said that immediately upon entering the hallway he was grabbed by the collar and began to be struck, “Weinstock’s supervisor told WFTV . “There was no discussion, no talk, not even time for anything. Just as soon as they’re in the hallway, the attorney was grabbed.”
The judge was allowed to catch his breath and go back to the bench to finish his other rulings, according to the report. There were no arrests, but the incident will be reported to the Florida Bar.
I guess if you are a judge, it’s not illegal to threaten people with violence and then physically attack them. Who knew?

Exact Number Of Faces Unknown...maybe they got yours...if not, hold that smile.

Gotcha !

Your Face: NSA Collecting Millions of Americans’ Images

(NEW YORK) — The National Security Agency‘s mining of personal data goes well beyond emails and phone calls.
According to The New York Times, newly uncovered information leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden regarding NSA intelligence gathering reveals the spy agency has also been collecting “millions of images a day” of Americans and foreigners for use in sophisticated facial recognition programs.
Furthermore, 55,000 of these images mined from social media, private emails and video conferencing were “facial recognition quality images.”
If the report is true, it would take several years before the images of all adult Americans appear in the agency’s database.
The Times noted that the exact number of Americans whose facial images have been gathered by the NSA is unknown. However, current laws about surveillance and privacy apparently don’t apply to the collection of faces from web images.
Increasingly, the U.S. community is turning to facial recognition, fingerprints and other identifiers as important tools in fighting domestic and international terrorism. Meanwhile, privacy rights experts say this is yet another intrusion into the personal lives of Americans.
