    Why pick on Christians? At least we tell you in your face that what homosexuals are doing is against God’s law, but that redemption is possible. But Christians give you the option to go on living your own lifestyle if you want it. We are not forcing anything on anybody. Now take Islam, there is no fall back. There is no redemption. You are homosexual, good, you die. No tolerance, no options. You die. Go and pick on them, and re-educate them and see how far you get.

    In 1933, new German laws forced Jews out of their civil service jobs, university and law court positions, and other areas of public life. In April 1933, laws proclaimed at Nuremberg made Jews second-class citizens. These Nuremberg Laws defined Jews, not by their religion or by how they wanted to identify themselves, but by the religious affiliation of their grandparents. Between 1937 and 1939, new anti-Jewish regulations segregated Jews further and made daily life very difficult for them. Jews could not attend public schools; go to theaters, cinema, or vacation resorts; or reside or even walk in certain sections of German cities.

    So he demands Christians embrace paganism. Well that can’t happen!
    Oh wait, they already do Halloween, Mardi Gras, Christmas (Jeremiah 10 anyone?), Easter (from Ishtar – dye them eggs and honor those fertility gods!) Pardon my sarcasm, but we are already embracing the world’s ways. What difference the abomination?

  4. Gary Canant says:

    Nouns, I was taught, name people places and things. Never once did anyone tell me WORDS are nouns!
    Words are more powerful than any other NOUN known to man. God said “Light Be”.
    In 1977 The minister, Johnny Paycheck, had his congregation chanting, “TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT, I AIN’T WORKING HERE NO MORE”!.
    Frank Bruni knows the power of the spoken words – it is the church that don’t.
    David did NOT fall on his knees and pray in front of Goliath! HEAVEN NO! His NOUNS were recorded as “WHO IS THIS UNCIRCUMCISED PENIS THAT WOULD DEFY THE GOD OF HEAVEN?” and to Goliath he said, “I’M GONNA FEED YOU TO THE BIRDS”
    Church – God said we are created in his image. Hence, praying for weapons we already pocess is to be “spiritually RETARTED”. The war is on, example; “In the name of The Kingdom of God, I command the words of Frank Bruni to fall to the ground inert. To Frank Bruni I say, “SET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER! YOUR DAYS OF REBELLION ARE OVER!, amen!”

    At 54 years old I never thought I would be alive to see these days. I always thought it would be many years away. I pray to god every day and thank him for in dwelling me with the Holy Spirit to discern these times upon us thank you brother john for your blog radio show and steadfast service for our lord. Come quickly lord Jesus

  7. Jack Sutton says:

    In response to Gerredina Kovac’s piece on the Nuremburg laws, how many Christian civil servants, teachers ,cops ,firemen will forfeit their jobs and pensions?

    Not to mention those who work for large corporations.

    Being made poor overnight will be agonizing and many will be tempted to compromise, justifying it by thinking of our children and spouses and bills. In the end, all of us will be tested.

  8. John says:

    2Cor 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

  9. Lori says:

    As you always tell us John, we definitely need to draw close to the Lord, He will be our greatest strength in these tumultuous days ahead.

  10. Melany says:

    Henry w ~ I’m 59 and I’m full-speed ahead looking forward to Messiah’s return sooner rather than later! This is actually happening. Satan knows time is short. Deception is one of his favorite weapons. God’s Word cannot be altered, and this goes beyond futile attempts to redefine His Word. My anger is directed at satan, whose sole purpose is to fight against God and cause as much pain, heartache, and destruction as possible. I would suppose satan hates the Constitution as much as the Bible, because the freedoms granted in the Constitution enable people to worship as they choose. In watching so much change, God’s Word becomes more & more precious to me. “For I am the Lord, I change not;…” (Malachi 3:6).

  11. Vicki says:

    Homosexuality was a practice in pagan temples and pagan lands. Study some ancient history. Do the obvious Sodom and Gomorrah ring a bell? Sorry if the truth hurts. I think it’s time to call things as they are.

  12. Dan.w says:

    As I have stated earlier………we all will have a ‘hill to die on’.Real Christians do not crawl off the alter,so to speak.Better a hill to die on,than a Hell to fill.We ARE at the point of no return.If any of you perverted reprobates think you can turn me into one such as yourselves.others have tried..and my God/Savior is taking note.I will not give in.I’m not identified by any political party which ‘whores’after votes.I identify with my Lord Jesus.Evil may have it’s day.but it’s destiny is already determined.To the pit of a fiery Hell,and also for those who loved evil,or took part in it’s deed’s.The plan of Scripture will not be thrown off.All praise and honor to our Lord Jesus Christ.

  13. Dan.w says:

    I was watching CBN news last night.There was a piece on obama’s prayer.read [preyer] breakfast.I had to turn it off.He is an outed muslim,so for the liar.read [lair] in -chief to call himself christian,it made me wretch.So,were these ‘christian pastors there’ also praying he live long and prosper too?Are they the ‘roll over’ christians that think homosexuality is the new righteous,and we true believers must be stopped because political correctness is the new holy.There is a huge difference between [cultural christian],and blood bought one.Obama IS a direct face of judgment on a weakened church and a morally base nation,slated for for eternal flame.America won’t bow the knee to the true God,but has caved to the sodomites.All of you,who are the faithful remnant.be not dismayed..this was predicted.We ARE on a collision course with the Holy God…….no way to avoid it.

  14. Keith says:

    God will protect free will until death. A lot of
    Homosexuals don’t seem to express vocally a hate for God, I think most essentially its confusion that is perpetuated and bonded to habitation of promiscuity. We must love the homosexuals like Jesus would and allow them to make the choices they make because though we are all called to faithfully minister to those folks too, God protects free will, because without it we could not love him either. Im not expounding their choices or saying that I believe they are without err, but we must not bigot ourselves either with poor sense of humanity. Ive spent a lot of time around lots of different homosexuals and never “caught the gay” so lets use our noggin and scripture to love these people to the cross without confusing ourselves. Also, as a newish believer I am kind of disgusted by the fact some people are in celebration(I wish I couldnt use that word literally) of those people going to hell, that isn’t the Love of Jesus to condemn another.

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      Why are you trying to put us on the defensive?
      The homosexuals and their supporters are taking the fight to us and trying to destroy the true meaning of marriage.
      They call us bigots if we stand up to them and some how speaking truth to them is not loving them.
      Have you ever witness to a homosexual and lead one to the Lord Jesus?
      If you followed this blog, you would understand the incredible hatred I received from them for standing for the truth.
      If you followed my radio show, you would hear testimonies of homosexuals who we prayed for and were set free.
      I really to not want to be lectured about how much love we should show to them, when they and their supporters are promoting this sin as if it is something special.
      Do you come to our Tuesday and Thursday nights pray where we repent of the sins of America and pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit? If not why not?
      I also suggest that you read my teaching on God’s holiness vs homosexuality: http://www.defendproclaimthefaith.org/homosexuality_and_god_1.html

  15. Keith says:

    The fact that you think you have to defend Jesus is pretty laughable at best. There is no defensive protocol in which to deal with individuals but to love them as Christ would. You can get all uppity and create more dissent by attacking people, though God does not APPROVE of it he ALLOWS it. He doesn’t say to ostracise those who are different or promalgerate hate and promotion of hasty defensive mechanism against homosexuals. It takes love to open the doors of acknowledgement. I’m certain Jesus wouldnt be writing essays on editorial articles from the New York Times. It’d probably pretty hard to find that sincere voice necessary to speak with God if you were attacked into getting there. I won’t be “embracing” any gay marriages nor will I be there as they try to unite but it doesn’t change the fact that we are called to love (not defend) at all costs. You essentially perpetuated the problem by sharing this article, everyone is already aware that they want us to accept them as they are Jon since the obvious response to that is “we don’t want homosexuals being married before God”, the notion doesn’t carry any weight beyond the weight we give it. Mr. Bruni won’t be forcing anyone to choose, notice that the article was an editorial, he’ll probably be writing garbage articles for that scumbag newspaper in hopes that people pander to his godless argument. The more page views that site gets the more money they recieve via advertisement so lets not support them by recognizing it.

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      Have you ever witnessed to a homosexual that Jesus Christ can free him/her of the sin they are in bondage to?
      Have you ever prayed with a homosexual to lead him to Christ and to be set free from sin?
      What is you idea of “love” because it means nothing in what you are writing?
      Is your idea of love accepting them with the sin and not telling them God’s plan of salvation and freedom from bondage?

  16. Barbara in VA says:

    Here are some very encouraging words from Jack Kinsella in his Omega Letter originally published January 24, 2008; but it is so much more comforting in today’s world over 7 years after it was originally written!

    “It is discouraging to wear the label of ‘prophecy nut’.
    (But Noah preached for 120 years without a convert — now that is discouraging.)
    So I think it is good to step back once in a while and drink in the awesomeness of the events to which we are now almost daily witnesses.
    Our individual setbacks pale in comparison to the awesomeness of witnessing of the Hand of God directly interacting in our world to fulfill His Word in our generation.
    If that isn’t encouraging, I don’t know what is.
    Paul tells us of a special crown, the ‘crown of righteousness’ that is reserved in heaven,
    “not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.” (2nd Timothy 4:8)
    Titus 2:13 says that, believers with understanding aren’t quaking in fear “at looking at the things that are coming upon the earth,” but that, instead, they are;
    “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2:13)”

    God bless John and all those who read his posts, which are the work of a watchman who is warning all God’s people!

    Maranatha!

  17. Dan.w says:

    I realize I still have a lot of growth to do in my Christian walk.,however,anyone who knows me knows I love everyone.I can hate the sin,and separate it from the person,because Christ modeled that for us.I will not call homosexuality [gay],’cause ‘gay’ it’s not.I also hate any sin found in my own life and continually ask the Lord to bring it before me so I can repent of it.Homosexuality is especially grievous,because it note’s a final departure from the Lord,and soon impending judgment.I don’t wish it on anyone and find no joy in it……just believing/and preaching the truth.God bless you all.you too brother John.Dan.w

  18. Dan.w says:

    The fact that islam,and homosexuality are constantly in the news is testimony to the fact that the ‘church’ has retreated and left a vacuum in society.These are like HUGE signposts saying we’ve abandoned [our] post.Some well meaning believers don’t ‘get it’.I personally have witnessed to people trapped in ‘the deathstyle of that sin’.I refuse to call it a lifestyle,because it is not.One dear lost lesbian was on her deathbed,I felt Christ’s tears run down my face..but I still took time out to get some solid Scripture to her,because I saw her lostness.I had pity and compassion on her,without being blinded by the sin which beset her.I refuse to give an inch to the ‘accept my sin or else crowd.it is to me,like spiritual extortion.God bless each and every one of you saints out there who unashamedly hold firm to all of God’s Holy Word,and take it out to the marketplace of idea’s.This site is like fresh air and clean water to me.All of you here are loved.It’s all Christ.He catches us,and then He cleans us up.Thank you Jesus,for your mercy,truth,love for each of us.

  19. Keith says:

    Starting to get a little out of hand. First things first a brief introduction to how the internet works: When you share something, and as a result increase the viewership of a given page, in this case Satans propaganda of homosexual epsilonism, you inherently make it more popular. Search engines prior to this article did not flange the New York Times editorial section into prominence or importance. When you incite others to read the article it subsequently is placed higher in a que of relevance. As you increase the relevance of the article it then beckons itself more largely in other facets of the internet where you will in turn further increase the amount of Satans propaganda than already existed. So in a nutshell, learn to understand how the medium you’re using is actually reaching people it may not have.
    Secondly, I have witnessed to gays, I say gay because they were men. If they were women I would have called them lesbians. As a collective whole they are homosexuals.
    Thirdly, when you refer to people as reprobates because of the sin they commit it doesn’t serve to open a communical barrier that allows that person to connect with you on a humanistic level. Significantly reducing the likelihood of conversion.
    If the tactic you’re using to combat sin is offensive to the the individual whom 63% of the time experience sexual trauma as a child(usually produces a sensitive culture) and further spreads the dark campaign of satan whether you’re ignorant or not of it probably means you should stick to your show that I won’t listen to now after communicating with you.

    • JohnMcTernan says:

      1. This is pure nonsense. The leading Hard Left news organ is calling for forced reeducation of Christians if they don’t accept homosexuality, you want it hushed over!
      My ministry is to warn believers of what is happening and dangerous coming to them. It is hard for to believe that you actually wrote this.
      2. Great that you witness to homosexuals.
      3. I use the word reprobate because this is what the Bible calls them. I am showing how America is coming under the control of the reprobates and their mindset. I am speaking sepeically to those promoting
      this agenda and you added to what I said. I will not back down from using Bible words when it fits exactly what is happening to America.
      Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
      Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
      Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
      Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

      4. Should Paul have not written Romans 1 as it might offend people? It is the truth of what happens to a people when they turn from God as this is exactly what is happening to America,
      yet you think it is not right to use Romans 1. The Bible is an offense to many as well as the gospel of Jesus Christ. You need to come to terms with this and stand on the truth.

  20. Mary E. says:

    I agree that as Christians, we are commanded to love one another, but we are also commanded to follow the laws of God, not mans. This is where the wheat will be separated from the tares. We are at a critical point in history, where a few minority (the left) and the U.S. government are trying to change the law, governing marriage and other freedoms. If they succeed, Christians will be forced to live under it. And lets not kid ourselves, following a judgment by the Supreme Court, in favor of ssm, there will be further legislation coming down, prohibiting disagreement or expressing freedom of speech against said law(s). Individually, we need to understand that we will be in a “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego” moment. (Dan.3:1-30) Do we fall down and worship “an image of gold….set up in the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon” ? Or, do we Defend and Proclaim the Faith, as our Lord has instructed?

  21. Dan.w says:

    Amen brother John and sister Mary,Dan.w

  22. Henry W says:

    From looks of things our days will become much darker until we are taken. As I see it there is not enough voices standing up against this evil god bless you brother John and dan w

  23. Dan.w says:

    Thank you brother Henry.Things unfortunately will grow worse,but it was predicted in the Bible,and the Lord still has His remnant,and He still doe’s mighty things everyday.Don’t lose hope,no one can knock Jesus from His rightful place.He not only is the central figure in the Bible,but history is HISstory.I look forward to one day soon meeting each of you.God bless all of you,Dan.w

  24. Terry says:

    Homosexuals are attacking Christians and traditional marriage, and those that oppose them are paying for it. Who’s the intolerant & bigot ?

  25. Denise in MI says:

    There is a spirit of hedonism in our country that started in the drug-induced free love movement in the 60s, while God & prayer were taken out of schools, & both have gotten worse. Definite correlation between decrease of God and increase of sin.Few church leaders have spoken out & here we are.The double-standard for “tolerance” (and exception for Islam) is a slap in the face to Christians, but Jesus did say we would be hated like he was/is.

    Re: love & tolerance: Jesus loved the money changers, but He didn’t tolerate them making His “Father’s house a den of thieves.” He loved the woman caught in adultery but told her to “sin no more.” We ALL need to repent of ALL of our sins and turn back to the Lord. Homosexuality, however, is the one sin called an abomination. To force the Church to accept/marry same-sex couples is to mock God. He won’t tolerate it, and we will be judged for it. We need to pray like never before that people will wake up & repent.

    P.S. What happened to a business’s right to refuse service to anyone? I remember that sign as well as “No shirt, no shoes, no service.” I have visions of shirtless, shoe-less people demanding their rights. lol.
    Seriously, one can deny service based on hygiene but not one’s religious beliefs?
