Will Sharia Be Enforced in the U.S.? (video)

“Shariah can’t be enforced in the U.S.! It’s foreign law based on religion – the Constitution expressly forbids the establishment of religious law here.”

Or so they’ll tell you. But watch what happens in Dearborn, Michigan when several Christian evangelists demonstrated what city police do when Christians decide to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Christ anywhere near muslims. Apparently they’ve had experience with this happening before.

If you think Shariah can’t be enforced by law enforcement in the U.S., think again.

Album Release: Perry LaHaie to Release Endless Fields on September 16, 2008

Endless Fields

Endless Fields

Nashville, TN – Singer/songwriter Perry LaHaie, in partnership with Infinity U, has announced the September 16, 2008 release of Endless Fields, his national debut album, produced by GRAMMY and Dove Award-nominated producer Brian Hardin (FFH, Paul Alan, Manic Drive, Vicki Yohe). Endless Fields fuses modern acoustic rock and a passionate layering of electric guitars with lyrics that reveal LaHaie’s heart for the nations.

In 2007, armed with a purpose to share God’s grace with those who’ve never had a chance to experience it, LaHaie embarked on a journey that has forever changed his life. He left his job as the afternoon drive personality/assistant general manager for the award-winning 99.7 Family Life Radio in Midland, Mich., to move his family across the country to Phoenix, Ariz., to join Frontiers, an international community of people inviting Muslims all over the world to follow Jesus. Of LaHaie’s music ministry, which has taken him all over the United States, Mexico, Thailand, Turkey, Russia and Belgium, he says, “I made this move because of the astounding grace of Jesus Christ in my life. There are people who’ve never had the opportunity to experience the freedom of God’s forgiveness. I have a passion for reaching those people.”

“Perry LaHaie’s music conveys not only God’s heart for the unreached, but a deep longing to be used by God for His purposes on the earth,” says David Harriman, Director of Advancement for Frontiers. “Perry’s sense of yearning, joy and privilege is contagious.”

LaHaie is contributing half of the proceeds from the sales of Endless Fields to Frontiers. The organization has workers in over 40 Muslim countries sharing their lives and faith with their Muslim neighbors while pursuing various vocations. Their work involves everything from helping local economies through starting businesses or working for local businesses, to purifying water, to helping AIDS victims, to health care, to the arts. They show love and build trust over many years with their Muslim neighbors to win the right to share Jesus with them. Frontiers workers may stay in the field from two weeks to two years or longer. The goal of Frontiers is to establish communities of Muslim-born believers in Jesus around the world. So far, Frontiers workers have seen 200 of these fellowships birthed in the Muslim world.

With the release of Endless Fields, LaHaie hopes to extend his impact for the kingdom of God by compelling others to reach out to Muslim communities throughout the world. “It is my hope and prayer that this project will inspire followers of Jesus in America to get involved in what God is doing in the Muslim world,” explains LaHaie. “I discovered that 95% of workers from the West are focused on sharing the Gospel with already reached people groups, i.e. groups of people where many believers in Jesus already exist. Only 5% of workers are focused on people groups who have not heard the Gospel even once.”

“There are about 6,500 ethnic/language groups of people without the Gospel, and of those groups, there are 247 Muslim groups of 100,000 or more people with absolutely no Christian witness,” LaHaie continues. “There are currently only two workers for every one million Muslims throughout the world. I know that the Lord longs for these precious people to know His love and forgiveness and for His glory to shine among them.”

LaHaie has created the one-minute radio feature/podcast “Cast Yourself In” to tell stories of what Jesus is doing in the Muslim world and how believers can join in the work. Launched in April 2008, this radio feature/podcast airs on 31 radio outlets, as well as LaHaie’s website.

Perry LaHaie’s Endless Fields will be distributed by Infinity Music Distribution. For more information on Perry LaHaie and his new album, Endless Fields, visit http://www.perrylahaie.com. For more information on Frontiers, visit http://www.frontiers.org.

Alarm Bells Should Be Going Off Now… A 2007-08 NEA Resolution and New California Law

This blog comment was posted on one of my many social networking sites I like to frequent… I felt it had significance for this forum in that many of my Christian friends are also homeschoolers. I will post what my friend Carla posted, and then my reply to it that I believe connects the NEA statement and another recent event regarding law…

The National Educational Association in their 2007-2008 Resolutions has taken a stand against homeschooling.

It reads “The National Education Association believes that home schooling programs based on parental choice cannot provide the student with a comprehensive education experience. When home schooling occurs, students enrolled must meet all state curricular requirements, including the taking and passing of assessments to ensure adequate academic progress. Home schooling should be limited to the children of the immediate family, with all expenses being borne by the parents/guardians. Instruction should be by persons who are licensed by the appropriate state education licensure agency, and a curriculum approved by the state department of education should be used.

The Association also believes that home-schooled students should not participate in any extracurricular activities in the public schools. The Association further believes that local public school systems should have the authority to determine grade placement and/or credits earned toward graduation for students entering or re-entering the public school setting from a home school setting.”

Statistics have shown that homeschooled students do exceptionally well. They excel (and win) spelling bees, score high on tests like the SAT, and go on to be accepted into many colleges. One Source: http://www.chec.org/Legislative/News/HomeschoolingStatistics/Index.html

Homeschoolers also find benefits in co-op classes contrary to the NEA belief that students should only be instructed by their immediate families.

Take a moment to tell the NEA that homeschooling is a real option that does produce wonderfully rounded and educated members of society.

And my post:

Thanks for sharing this, Carla. I hope that people see the agenda in this statement, and understand the underlying motives for making such a statement. Namely, they are losing federal monies for each student pulled out of their godless system and that they want to have total control over all students in the U.S. in the same way that the socialist government schools have total control over students in Germany, where parents can be put in jail for trying to homeschool their children, especially for religious reasons.

If anyone noticed, California just passed a law prohibiting the use of the words “Dad” and “Mom” in the public school system… ON ALL LEVELS…. which means that these words will be extracted from all textbooks (Hmmm, do you think the textbook publishers will complain about that?)

Swartzy also signed into law that boys can now use the girls locker rooms and restrooms – and visa versa. Think about that. That includes the showers, folks.

Swartzenegger has been pushed to the public as if he is a conservative republican, when in reality he is not. He is a fiscal conservative in many ways, but otherwise he is a RINO. Passing this type of legislation off as law proves that.

The resolution from the NEA is geared to try and force Christians to be subject to all policies deemed appropriate by the state. If someone in a position of power takes this NEA resolution statement and runs with it, everyone could be in real trouble.

Unless there is a huge outcry by Christians about these issues, one day we will wake up and have to hand over our kids for the government to raise. (Of course that is a bit of an exaggeration, but not really.)

Go here to hear commentary on the California law that passed…
