something to ponder before election

John Kissinger [11/16/2015 4:19 PM]
MAIN QUESTION HERE: How is YOUR church going to handle the migrants wave? 10,000 + 65,000 is 75,000 plus some more is 100k – not a small number. In brief in Europe in the past year or so:

1. First they catch them at the border and process them to locked and guarded camps built by tax payers money 2. Then, there are riots from local citizens against migrants 3. Then, there are riots from the migrants against inhumane conditions 4. Then, there were some conflicts between migrants and protestors 5. Then, the migrants simply refused to go through the process. They put them on a train to Austria and Germany and when the got there, they refused to get off the train and in the crowds of protesters 6. Then some countries closed their borders and built walls, because it was materially impossible to send hundreds of thousands of people back to the Middle East 7. Finally, the whole screening process proved not to be perfect as obvious from the Paris terrorist who successfully went through it

In this chaos, some churches came out with a theoretical proposal to assimilate within the local culture. The actual steps to do that and what’s the exact role of the church have not been yet reveled. Some think, they never will be…

With this in mind I am not even asking for a Pentecostal or Charismatic response on the dilemma. Those of us that have done some ministry in such context are asking for ANY CHRISTIAN church/missional approach to the dilemma. What’s your solution and how is your church going to respond to the migration wave? Rick Timothy Charles Jon Alan John Ricky David

Some churches in Europe are converting Muslims. http://www.allenbwest.com/2015/11/as-muslim-refugees-flood-europe-christianity-on-the-rise-you-wont-believe-why/

same media source: Here we are just days after a horrific Islamic terror attack in Paris and what is the Obama administration response? They release five Yemeni detainees from Guantanamo Bay to the United Arab Emirates. I suppose it’s fair enough — seems the bad guys lost eight in Paris so it’s proper that we refill their ranks. After all, we did send back the Taliban’s senior military staff for a deserter — oops, I mean a fella who served with honor and distinction. http://www.allenbwest.com/2015/11/complete-madness-as-paris-mourns-obama-just-did-the-unthinkable/

from the same media source: Madonna paused her concert in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday night and broke down in tears as she paid tribute to the victims killed in terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday — but the singer drew the ire of some social media users for suggesting that “only love” could change the world, and consequently, prevent terrorism. http://www.allenbwest.com/2015/11/madonna-makes-insane-suggestion-for-fighting-isis/

Hippy / new age values meeting the real world.. only the love of Jesus will overcome. I’m having a hard time with refugees who have such anger and a spirit if entitlement – let alone thise bent on destroying the west … but I don’t know if that’s the media worthy outbreaks only or typical. Don’t see much humility also – it’s only the ones with money or connections or with illegal means that make it. Personally I see it as a 5th columnb of Islamic infiltration. I’ve not heard the pope suggest that, although he has said “world war III” .

Timothy Carter well, the UN just voted on Article 42(7) http://cupandcross.com/henry-kissinger-and-russias-prophetic-destiny-in-syria/

According to the Daily Mail, America has accepted 727 fleeing Christians this year while 4,200 Muslims have been granted asylum. http://www.jewsnews.co.il/2015/10/06/iraqi-xtians-who-escaped-isis-denied-asylum-in-the-us/

The ghosts of the 1990s have returned to confront Hillary Clinton, released from the vault by Donald Trump and revved up by a 21st-century version of the scandal machine that almost destroyed her husband’s presidency. This is a moment that her campaign has long expected. What remains to be seen is whether a reminder of allegations of sexual impropriety against Bill Clinton — which were deemed to have varying levels of credibility when they were first aired — can gain new traction in a different context https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/the-bill-clinton-scandal-machine-revs-up-and-takes-aim-at-his-wife/2016/01/06/a08cf550-b4be-11e5-a76a-0b5145e8679a_story.html?wpisrc=nl_az_most

Yea yea yea… the biased liberal news media will squash this story too. Bury it beneath all the GOP trash and other world problems.

Brent Welke [01/07/2016 3:45 PM]
Dunno. I think the people will think having a male nymphomaniac loose in their White House as cringeworthy. Nixon taught us it’s not the crime, but the coverup. Hillary’s enabling of Bill will not resonate in tandem with her pro-woman rhetoric.
