Jesus is NOT in the Tomb

It's quite likely that you missed the revelation that the top "scholars" in the Discovery Channel's "documentary" claiming to have found Jesus' tomb have retracted their stances.

The media was quick to get behind this "we found Jesus' tomb theory" even before the "documentary" first aired (notably airing soon before the Easter holiday) but yet the Jerusalem Post (an unlikely read for most) is the only one, to my knowledge, discussing these retractions.

I didn't want to report on this case originally because I saw it as yet another hyped up, media-backed attack on the Christian faith that was without merit (there are obvious limitations to this theory that has been in existence for the last 14 years or so). Paul writes this message to us in 1 Corinthians 1: 20-25:
"Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world throught its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased throught the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified; a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength."

Pelosi to Visit Iran

Emboldened by her recent visit to rogue state Syria, Pelosi is considering a visit to the rogue state of Iran, even though she admits the language used by Iran's president is repulsive to society. Bush is continuing to maintain a hard-line stance with the dictator and the goal is no nuclear weapons. Pelosi, though, knows better. She believes Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's statements that Iran just wants the nukes for energy purposes. The rest of America can see through that one, but this is what Pelosi's leftist counterpart Rep. Tom Lantos (D) has to say, "So if the Iranian president says that he is developing (nuclear material) for peaceful purposes, we are assisting him in that process.''

Brilliant piece of foreign policy there. Let's help the guy who wants to decimate the country of Israel and is supplying weaponry to militants in Iraq to be used against U.S. troops by assisting his search for nuclear technology! Wow, I feel so much better with these diplomats at the helm, don't you? Sure does justify violating the Constitution's mandate that the President be chief executive, huh?

Somebody revoke these politicians' passports!

"The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord stikes with flashes of lightning. The voice of the Lord shakes the desert. The Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, "Glory!" The Lord sits enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace." Psalm 29:4-11

God is still in charge and will bring us his saved ones home to the land of the living one day.

Europe to Train U.S. on Global Warming

While it is still debatable that the Earth is indeed warming, that the causes would be due to man is far from being established fact. Yet our country is considering adopting burdensome requirements to U.S. companies in order to reduce our nation's carbon emissions. Never mind that all humans pollute the earth with our "carbon emissions". Never mind that most of the major industrial countries in the world (with most of the world's population residing in them) care naught for the environment and are pursing instead rapid economic growth. Never mind that what Europe has taught us is that:

"In other ways, the approach [to reduce carbon emissions] has been a bureaucratic morass with a host of unexpected and costly side effects and a much smaller effect on carbon emissions than planned. And many companies complain that it is unfair. "

What happens when companies do stupid, unexplained things because government requires it of them? They have to fire workers and lose business to oversees plants in China and India, where as noted, companies may still freely model Adam Smith's ideal for capitalism far closer than the U.S. or Europe.

Thus once again, the environmental attempt to benefit the Earth comes at the cost of humans. All environmental movement propoganda is just that: caring more about the land and creatures God gave us than for the people on it.

And about those in Hollywood who claim they are buying back the carbon they used to travel and have concerts: they're fools. One cannot plant enough trees to make up for one's supposed pollution. And what are poor people to do when they pollute? Well, they're not allowed to. Only rockers, former Vice Presidents and actors are allowed to pollute.

Nancy Pelosi, Modern-day Jezebel

Pelosi's decision to undermine the Bush administration's foreign policy illustrates not only her disdain for the Constitution (where is the power granted for a member of Congress to conduct ambassadorial trips without the knowledge or approval of the president?), but her unwillingness to cede authority for positions carved out with a logical mind and a firm resolve.

Nancy Pelosi is a modern-day Jezebel acting out her personal interpretations of what is "right" based on emotions and feelings. She has determined she knows best and conducted her embarassing mission to Syria against our elected President's wishes. Nancy Pelosi has decided that her womanly wisdom is mightier than the entire nation's. She feels she knows best how to resolve issues with the troubling government of Syria, who harbors terrorists and has given aid to those we are combatting in Iraq. Pelosi, against the better judgment of foreign policy analyists (and no, former President Jimmy Carter does NOT count), has begun a dialogue with a rogue leader who sympathizes with bombers and murderers because she disagrees with Bush's hard "meanie" stance and she's going to show him how a loving, open-minded person handles these leaders. Her brand of foreign policy even convinced her to don a headscarf. How touching.

Such an act by any citizen of this country would have merited a trial in court under the charge of treason in days of old. Whether or not a conviction could be handed down (granted, the charge and penalty of treason is a strong one and is best reserved for the most egregious of cases), most can agree that Pelosi has betrayed our Constitution, betrayed our government, undermined our security, and given aid and encourgement to our enemies. As an elected member to Congress, she deserves censure.

If Hillary Clinton manages to get herself elected Chief Executive, we women can all expect to be wearing headscarves in years to come. Dealing with terrorists in a friendly manner is capitulation.

Jezebel in modern times convinced her husband the king that she knew best how to run his kingdom and took it upon herself to promote Baal worship and slaughter hundreds of God's prophets. (1 Kings 16-18). May our God preserve a holy remnant in this country, those who will not align themselves with the decisions of the evil ones in the Capitol. God said in the days of Jezebel, "Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel--all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and all whose mouths have not kissed him (1 Kings 19:18)." Nancy Pelosi (and Hillary Clinton) wants to bow down and kiss the hand of him who condones slaughter of the innocent.

This blogger, at least, will never bow down.
