Now they may have to endure the hassle of a federal lawsuit, to try and continue having church meetings without being hassled by local officials. It seems California is too often the area where Christians face hassles in everything from home schools, Christian private schools and now in San Diego even house churches are being hassled. Pray for the Lord’s swift return.

Well, the persecution had to come.

Like I’ve mentioned before Hate Crimes Legislation Could be Easily Spun into Persecution for Christians. So you’re going to have to decide if you’ll stand on the truth or take the popular route.

Also keep in mind, that Black Liberation Theology, what our President calls the “social gospel” is very accommodating of the homosexual lifestyle.
Also notice in the article above, there are no exemptions for small private businesses. This may also mean that even when it comes to picking someone like a baby sitter for your children, that you might not “legally” have the option of denying homosexuals.

You’ll notice, that article mentions a journalist, who was planning to file a report with their paper was present. Here is that report: Gay anarchist ‘action’ hits church. Keep in mind, that the journalist notes, they didn’t know the details of where or what would be taking place beforehand. So the journalist was not aware of anything to warn anyone about beforehand. Also, notice there were no arrests made.
Pray the reprobates might come to know the truth and pray for the comfort of the saints at Mount Hope Church in Lansing, MI. Mount Hope Church is a member of the Assemblies of God organization.
|2 Timothy 3:12 (New American Standard Bible)
|1 Peter 2:21-25 (New American Standard Bible)
Saints will continue to face persecution, but we who were once lost ourselves, should not revile those who are without the truth. We Christians have the good hope of eternal salvation and our sins forgiven. We must continue to share the Gospel of the Lord Jesus, with those who are lost.
(For some of you, the name Mount Hope Church in Lansing, MI I’m sure rings a bell in your heads. And yes I’ve had strong words in their regard in the past. That was over a year ago and is in the past. Today, we should help them keep standing for the cause of Christ. Stand with them as fellow saints and without division.)
