Standing Upright in a Howling Wind

I recently memorized Isaiah 41:10 for a Bible Study. I find myself repeating it to myself often throughout the day.

So do not fear for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, I am your God. I will strengthen you and I will help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -- Isaiah 41:10

Notice that the scripture doesn't say that we should fear the Republican Party. Neither political party, according to the Bible, will strengthen us, and help us. A Republican President isn't going to uphold us with their righteous right hand.

We Christians must move ahead in our faith drawing our strength from a single source, God the Father.

A news story in the Washington Post offers a timely example of how this is true.

The news story is headlined, "George H.W. Bush is witness at same-sex marriage in Maine." The former President appeared as an official witness at a same sex "wedding" recently. Maine bent over to the sodomites in their decades long campaign for social and moral approval in 2012 with the approval of sodomy based marriage. Evangelical Christians offered noble resistance for a while, but eventually collapsed under the immense political and cultural force that "gays" have marshalled.

Evangelicals stood alone. Roman Catholics in Maine offered tepid resistance at best. Republicans in the Bush era were doing everything they possibly could to nudge the approval of sodomy into the cultural and moral mainstream.

Because of this indefensible collapse of Christianity in Maine we are now relentlessly assaulted with nonsense like this in serious news journals like the Washington Post:

“This is such a wonderful time for change in our legal system,” she added. “Who would be best to help us acknowledge the importance of our wedding as our friends and as the former leader of the free world. When they agreed to do so we just felt that it was the next acknowledgment of being ‘real and normal.’” Clement, 60, said she and Thorgalsen, 55, have been together for 12 years, during which she helped raise her new wife’s now-adult daughters.

Those are comments that the poor, deprived, discriminated against Bonnie Clement made in an email from her "honeymoon" in London. How decent and thoughtful of her and Helen, her partner in the crime of sodomy, to think to invite the former leader of the free world to witness their "wedding."

Here we find articulated for the first time the new Bush Doctrine -- "Sodomy is real and normal." The entire chattering class -- politicians, journalists, entertainers, artists, teachers ... even most ministers -- are in agreement. They are all now allowing themselves to be witnesses to the destruction of a once great Christian civilization.

And if you think I'm being too harsh read this article by my good friend Amy Contrada ... and weap.

Michael Heath has represented Christians in the public square for nearly three decades. As executive director of the historic Christian Civic League of Maine, Heath has been an outspoken advocate for moral values. Working alongside Dr. Dobson, Heath led a statewide family policy council for sixteen years.

Heath received the Family Research Council’s Family Faith and Freedom Award in 1998. He led multiple statewide campaigns -- including a memorable People’s Veto, which sent two hundred thousand Mainers to the polls in the dead of winter, just after a devastating ice storm which crippled all of Central Maine.

Heath served on the Governor’s Gambling Task Force, as well as on a Legislative Commission on Fatherhood. Just after college, Heath spent four years leading a ministry helping people struggling with substance abuse and/or mental illness.

Heath is married to Paulie, an inspirational singer, songwriter and speaker. They have three grown sons.

In recent years the Heaths have traveled to East Africa multiple times, working alongside missionaries in Tanzania to promote solar cooking in remote villages. Mike served as State Director for the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign in Iowa in 2011.
