400 Year Ago TODAY

April 29, 1607
That's right - 400 years ago this very day our forefathers arrived from England after a 4 month journey by sea.
Robert Hunt, Pastor
Stood on the shore of what is now Jamestown, Virginia and declared the following:
"From these very shores the gospel will go out
not only to these shores but all around the world"
It has! America has overwhelmingly been responsible for spreading the Gospel (the good news) of Jesus Christ around the world. Our very nation was founded upon the laws of God as proclaimed by the Bible, God's Holy Word.
It breaks my heart to see what is happening to our nation and to the Church. We are becoming a desensitised people. You cannot tell any different between the average Christian today and Joe Blow. It is heartbreaking.
In 1945 sixty four % of Americans held a
Biblical World View.
In 2007 only 4% of Americans hold a Biblical World View.
As for my husband and I we take a stand this day to do what we can in our little world to make a difference and stand up for what is right, and good and HOLY.

I am not surprised by the numbers, only saddened. Our family has made the same commitment that you and your husband have taken.
Thank you for your post.

Thank you for this post. At our school, we have an awesome history teacher who really teaches what you have written about. It is scary to see where our nation seems to be headed, but I just continue to trust in God. Thanks for the great reminder.

Let us not be afraid or ashamed to be different. There's no need for us to "fit in"!

"You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God." James 4:4

"but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, 'You shall be holy, for I am holy.'" 1 Peter 1:15-16

Oh poo. Now that I typed that, God has convicted me that I need to hasten back to my blog and make an important edit.

If I'm gonna preach it, I'd BETTER practice it!
