"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

HOME BIBLE STUDIES: UNLAWFUL

By: A.M. Kisly


Armor up, Christians! More persecution is coming our way. Be prepared to fight the good fight of faith.

Looks like more of our rights are being taken away! According to a San Diego news reporter, a pastor and his wife were interrogated by a San Diego County official for holding Bible studies in their home. The official also threatened them with escalating fines if they continued.

The officer's line of questioning was more in line with a Hitler Gestapo interrogation:



“She said, `Do you say `Amen?" And my wife said, "Well, yes," Jones recalled.

“And she said, `Do you say `Praise the Lord?’ She said, "Well, yes.’ What would that have to with it?" Jones said

In April, Jones received a written warning for "unlawful use of land" and was ordered to stop hosting his "religious assemblies."

“They can stop religious activities in the courthouses and that but they're trying to stop prayer in my house,” Jones complained.

Gee, I wonder if authorities will deem family "get-togethers", holiday gatherings and barbecues unlawful as well.
