The recent box office mega-hit ‘The Hunger Games’ caused a groundswell of controversy with kid-on-kid violence being a central element of the plot. Many commentators and concerned citizens spoke out to voice their belief that the visual theatrical depiction of kid-on-kid violence would have a much more detrimental societal effect than simply reading about it.
While it is much too early to quantitatively prove or disprove those assertions, we are able to measure a broad range of reactions among ‘Hunger Games’ movie watchers and ‘Hunger Games’ book readers.

But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror. For he looks at himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But, the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but one who does good works – this person will be blessed in what he does.
James 1:22-25 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Many Christian leaders are trying to address the nature of the cultural collapse, which is bringing bondage to our future generations. We have forgotten history and common sense has been jettisoned. As we know, he who forgets history is doomed to repeat it.
Ruthless dictatorships are emerging, not just in the Middle East, but also in South America, Africa, and elsewhere. People are treating government as if it is God and forgetting the real God, who is the only King willing to die to save us from our sins and pay the penalty for our acts of commission and omission.

A recent article in the Los Angeles Times about Catholic support for the two current vice presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Paul Ryan (who both claim to be Catholic), raised the question, Is God a pro-life conservative or is he a pro-abortion liberal? A side issue to that question is whether God favors a top-down social welfare state or a capitalist state of individual private effort and individual private charity, with no government handouts.
Of course, nothing in the article pointed to any Bible verses to back up either side’s position, much less the biblical position outlined in this article.

In a radio appearance and in some articles, Newcombe opined that evildoers who massacre innocent people, like the killer who recently shot up a midnight showing of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, seem to have no fear of Hell.
Newcombe complained that people today have no fear of God or Hell because today’s society has rejected the Christian, biblical doctrine of Hell where Jesus and His apostles clearly say that those who reject Christ will have to pay for their evil sins by suffering eternal damnation in Hell.

In the West, Malaysia is frequently singled out as a successful example of a moderate Islam state,
with gullible and ignorant Westerners often waxing lyrical about its old growth jungles, exotic beaches and cheap, delicious food. Malaysia has not one but nine royal families, which are all Muslim. Members of the nine take turns in ascending to the throne of the Supreme Ruler of Malaysia–the King who reigns as Head of State for a five-year term. Additionally, Malaysia’s Prime Minister and Head of Government is now and has always been a Muslim. The same applies for virtually all levels of authority in the judiciary, military, police, and education. Alongside the civil courts are the shariah courts which rule supreme in Muslim-versus-Muslim disputes, are accountable to no civil court (including the country’s highest civil court and frequently rule on disputes involving non-Muslims as well.

Secularists and the ACLU Strip First Amendment of Meaning
By Robert Knight
Christians, Orthodox Jews or anyone with traditional views of sex and marriage should be barred from state university counseling programs unless they agree to violate their beliefs. That’s the gist of the amicus brief the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed Feb. 11 in a case in which a Christian student is challenging her dismissal from a graduate counseling program at Eastern Michigan University in 2009.
Julea Ward had asked that another student take the case of a homosexual suffering from depression because, being a Christian, she could not affirm the person’s sexual relationships. Miss Ward was dismissed and filed a lawsuit charging unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination, religious discrimination and compelled speech. On July 26, 2010, a U.S. district court denied her claim, and she appealed to the 6th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals.
The ACLU’s brief to the appeals court contends that compelling someone to act against her beliefs does not violate her freedoms of religion or speech. The ACLU quotes the university’s response to Miss Ward saying she had a “conflict between your values that motivate your behavior and those behaviors expected of your profession.” In other words, you’re a conscientious Christian, so get lost.

Launched by the al-Qaeda-linked Sunni insurgent group Islamic State of Iraq, the assault claimed 58 lives, while 78 were injured and 100 taken hostage. But amidst the blood, tears, terror, and carnage emerged a story that is as spirit-lifting as it is sad. It involves a three-year-old boy named Adam, who, on that day, witnessed

Also, I had more opportunities to preach and teach around the United States.

In Minnesota, seven students committed suicide in recent months, three said to be involved in homosexuality. A college student at Rutgers jumped off the George Washington Bridge after his homosexual rendezvous was secretly filmed by his roommate and then broadcast over the Internet. The roommate and another student face criminal charges.
A 13-year-old in California and another in Texas killed themselves following student taunts about homosexuality. A 15-year-old in Indiana hanged himself over homosexual-related harassment.
And now we hear that another young man, 19-year-old Rhode Island college student Raymond Chase, hanged himself. He, too, believed he was “gay.”

This is outrageous.
Obama has learned nothing from what he acknowledges was a “shellacking.”
Almost 90 new Republicans have been elected to Congress, but will not be seated until January. The new Congress would never vote to allow openly gay men to serve, a step opposed by the heads of every branch of the military (though it is supported by the Secretary of Defense).
So the President plans to push for a vote on gays in the military in the two-week lame duck session dominated by Democrats, 61 of whom who have been voted out of office!
Did Obama notice that the Democrats in the Maine Legislature which voted for same-sex marriage, were voted out of office this week? That is explicit evidence the President is wrong in asserting “overwhelming majorities” favor same-sex marriage. The public opposes it. Forty-two states have passed Defense of Marriage Act laws that limit marriage to a man and a woman. Thirty put it in their state constitutions.

Today the people of California get to decide whether to legalize marijuana. Let’s hope they decide against it.
Whatever happens, however, let’s put an end to the stupid arguments that libertarians, liberals and red diaper doper babies make in favor of legalizing drugs, including marijuana.
One of the arguments these airheads make is that the War on Drugs is “unwinnable.” When people say it’s an “unwinnable” war, what do they really mean? What does it mean to win the drug war? You can’t possibly mean winning the drug war means no one using drugs, because, by that same logic, the war against violent crime is unwinnable.
This argument is specious. When confronted with such an argument, ask the person, What level of drug use constitutes “winning” the War on Drugs? Just because there’s rampant crime of any sort, that shouldn’t make us just give up!
Another argument in favor of legalization has the pro-legalization person asking the anti-legalization person, “If you make drugs legal, would you do drugs?”
The person’s answer to that question probably will be no, but what if it isn’t?
Of course, if they legalized rape or prostitution tomorrow, we ourselves wouldn’t suddenly become a pimp or a prostitute, much less rape anyone. Just because the average person wouldn’t do these things does not mean that a lot of other people wouldn’t do them.
Robbing banks is a perfect example here. If they made robbing banks legal, or-de-criminalized it, the average person probably isn’t going to start robbing banks, but many other people will.
Often, the pro-legalization person cites America’s allegedly bad experience with the Prohibition of alcohol in the 1920s.
The fact is, however, during Prohibition, the consumption of alcohol did indeed decline. Thus, Prohibition did indeed inhibit drinking.

On October 22, 2010 President Barack Obama issued a formal message to young girls and boys to “be true to” themselves by adopting the current lionized state of homosexism as “a source of pride, and a source of strength.” Having been young once himself, Mr. Obama knows that teenagers are by definition “immature” and remain so until roughly age 21 when their cognitive neuro anatomy catches up with their bodies.
Why tell children to feel “pride” and “strength” in adopting an early death sentence when you are too immature to know much of anything? How cruel, how outrageously heartless!
Instead of urging vulnerable youths into premature sexual riddled with crippling disease and death, Mr. Obama should have pointed to the October 9, 1998 Washington Post full page advert by The Whitman-Walker Clinic.
