Some of the best words ever spoken

Philippians 3:

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ 9 and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.

Not that this is news, but the UN is a joke. Iran's Ahmadinejad must be laughing his head off at the Obama Administration's impotence. Iran has no reason to stop its pursuit of nuclear weapons. The rest of the world just proved it is far too weak to do anything about it.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Israel Emanuel, Bibi and Obama

Reciprocal compliments galore - this time
It's apparently a 'new day' in Israel-US relations.

Obama's new attitude may be due to his reading of Exodus 7 (although realistically, there's no Bible in the White House)...

BP Disaster - resembles blood

Pharaoh's (Obama's?) Plague #1:

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is stubborn, and he still refuses to let the people go. 15 So go to Pharaoh in the morning as he goes down to the river. Stand on the bank of the Nile and meet him there. Be sure to take along the staff that turned into a snake. 16 Then announce to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to tell you, “Let my people go, so they can worship me in the wilderness.” Until now, you have refused to listen to him. 17 So this is what the Lord says: “I will show you that I am the Lord.” Look! I will strike the water of the Nile with this staff in my hand, and the river will turn to blood. 18 The fish in it will die, and the river will stink. The Egyptians will not be able to drink any water from the Nile.’

The Cowardice Of Not Calling Islam the Enemy
"Holder's avoidance of the obvious continues the absurd and embarrassing refusal of the Obama administration to acknowledge who out there is trying to kill Americans and why. In fact, it has banned from its official vocabulary the terms jihadist, Islamist and Islamic terrorism.

Instead, President Obama's National Security Strategy insists on calling the enemy — how else do you define those seeking your destruction? — 'a loose network of violent extremists.'"

UAE ambassador to US: 'Bomb Iran'
"The United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States said Tuesday that it would be worthwhile to bomb Iran's nuclear program, The Washington Times reported. Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba reportedly endorsed the military option if sanctions do not stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons."

Malachi 3

14 "You have said, 'It is futile to serve God. What did we gain by carrying out his requirements and going about like mourners before the LORD Almighty? 15 But now we call the arrogant blessed. Certainly the evildoers prosper, and even those who challenge God escape.' "

16 Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored his name.

17 "They will be mine," says the LORD Almighty, "in the day when I make up my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son who serves him. 18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.

US questions its unwavering support for Israel

There are questions that rarely get asked in Washington. For years, the mantra that America's intimate alliance with Israel was as good for the US as it was the Jewish state went largely unchallenged by politicians aware of the cost of anything but unwavering support.

But swirling in the background when Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, arrives in Washington tomorrow to patch up relations with the White House will be a question rarely voiced until recently: is Israel ‑ or, at the very least, its current government ‑ endangering US security and American troops?

In response, the soldiers, from the French Battalion, fired warning shots in the air."

Islamic hard-liners in Indonesia pledge war against Christians; government remains silent
