When Did It Become Wrong To Do Right?


In the Bible, God chose Israel to be a people special to Himself. He separated them from the other nations of the earth and bestowed on them countless blessings. He gave them revelations of Himself, while all the rest of the earth was in darkness. In Isaiah 5, He offers some WOES, warnings of judgments.


Here is the 4th woe…

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.


Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

You cannot take God’s standards and substitute them with man’s. This is perverted. A lesson we MUST learn is reversing God's standards of right and wrong precedes times of divine judgment for Israel and for America.

Deputy Fired for Invoking the “Billy Graham Rule”


The “Billy Graham Rule” is going to federal court.


Manuel Torres, a former sheriff’s deputy in Lee County, North Carolina, claims he was fired in September 2017 over his religious beliefs. He requests not to train a new female hire alone. Torres is a deacon at East Sanford Baptist Church in Sanford, North Carolina, and does not think it appropriate to be alone with a female who is not his wife.


The rule is named for Billy Graham because the late evangelist adopted the practice to avoid concerns or claims about sexual impropriety. Vice President Mike Pence drew national scorn from the Mainstream Media after he told The Hill that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife. The Charlotte Observer reports Torres first asked for a religious accommodation that would exempt him from the training in July 2017. The request was denied, but Torres tried again repeatedly. He was fired in September 2017.


University of Toledo Law Professor Howard Friedman told Christianity Today he is unaware of any other court cases involving the “Billy Graham Rule.” However, religious freedom cases have been on the rise, and not just at the U.S. district court level where the Torres case is located, but at the state and municipal level.

Bible verse results in fair housing violation for Christian realtor


The Virginia Real Estate Board accused a Christian realtor of violating fair housing laws because she included a Bible verse on her website and wrote religious phrases like "Jesus Loves You" on her email signature.


In 2017 the state agency filed a complaint against her alleging her email signature violated Virginia's Fair Housing Act. The complaint stated that because these realtors used religious speech, they could make someone feel discriminated against. Her signature line included phrases like, "For Faith and Freedom," "Jesus loves you," and "With God all things are possible."


Under the personal statement section on her business website, she wrote, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16. I am available to you when you need me." She also included a statement about her core values which referenced how God had blessed her in her profession and how she operated her business according to the Golden Rule.


In 2018 the real estate company that employed the realtor agreed to implement new policies that would prevent employees from posting religious statements on any business documents or advertising material. As a result of the rule, the realtor resigned from her job. But

she was warned that the Virginia Real Estate Board would track her license and file another complaint if she added religious statements to her communications.

Teacher Removed from Classroom After Defending Pledge of Allegiance

CBS News in Jacksonville


No one stood for the Pledge of Allegiance on the first day of Daniel Goodman’s class at First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Florida. And no one stood on the second day of class.

So, on the third day Mr. Goodman wrote a message to his students on the whiteboard rebuking them for disrespecting the pledge. School leaders removed him from the classroom.

Parents were infuriated that Mr. Goodman would dare encourage young people to show some respect for the nation. They accused the teacher of being insulting and demeaning.

One parent wrote on Facebook “What makes the teacher feel like this is appropriate? Why should our kids be met with this type of attitude at school? I can’t wait until the teacher is held responsible for their reckless banter cause it’s coming! I hope none of the students stand up for the Pledge of Allegiance in protest of the teacher”.

Hundreds to Rally in Philadelphia to Support Gunman Who Shot 6 Cops


Hundreds of Philadelphia residents were expected to hold a protest rally in support of the gunman who shot six police officers. Maurice Hill remains in jail. Police Commissioner Richard Ross told the television station, CBS 3 Philly, “Sadly, we do have to be there, I don’t understand it. There’s certain marches I do understand, this is definitely not one of them,”

It’s beyond belief that anyone would show public or private support for a neighborhood drug dealer who tried to slaughter law enforcement officers. The police were trying to protect the residents.


On the day of the shooting a mob of residents taunted police officers, hurling obscenities as well as projectiles.


Organizers were expecting 200 to 300 people at the rally. BUT only a handful of people showed up for Friday night rally in North Philadelphia.

Opposition for an official chaplain for the city


BEREA, Ky. The president of the Kentucky Council of Churches expressed opposition to a proposal that would appoint a Baptist pastor to serve as a chaplain for the city and present prayers at public meetings.


A proposal, Municipal order 03-19, states that the “council intends to revise the policy of invocations by appointing a council chaplain to offer invocations before council meetings.”

The selected chaplain was Kevin Slemp, the pastor of Berea Baptist Church. He would be paid $25 for each meeting. However, some spoke against the idea, including those who identified themselves as Christians, claiming that it is unconstitutional and that there are more important issues for the government to focus on.


It was pointed out that Congress has a chaplain, but the response from those opposing the proposal said, they do only because its representatives are thousands of miles away from their home church. As the residents of Berea go to church each Sunday just down the street, a chaplain is not necessary.
