BIBLE BELIEVERS UNDER ATTACK
FROM POPE, CATHOLICS, SATANISTS, GAYS, ATHEISTS, AGNOSTICS, APOSTATES & ABORTIONISTS
Kim Davis And The Coming
Christian Persecution In America
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. – 2 Timothy 3:12.
“My God in Heaven knows every crack, every crevice, every deep place in my heart. And he knows the thoughts that are in my mind before I even think them. And he has given me such a beautiful and wonderful grace through all of this. I had created such a pit of sin for myself with my very own hands.” (source).
Dear Kentucky County Clerks:Today, the United States Supreme Court issued its decision regarding the constitutionality of states’ bans on same-sex marriage. The Court struck down those laws, finding that they were invalid under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution.As elected officials, each of us has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Kentucky. The Obergefell decision makes plain that the Constitution requires that Kentucky — and all states — must license and recognize the marriages of same-sex couples. Neither your oath nor the Supreme Court dictates what you must believe. But as elected officials, they do prescribe how we must act.Effective today, Kentucky will recognize as valid all same sex marriages performed in other states and in Kentucky. In accordance with my instruction, all executive branch agencies are already working to make any operational changes that will be necessary to implement the Supreme Court decision. Now that same-sex couples are entitled to the issuance of a marriage license, the Department of Libraries and Archives will be sending a gender-neutral form to you today, along with instructions for its use.

A Judge Devoted to “Homosexual Re-education”
This led to the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal advocacy group, to file a suit against Boyd County to allow students to opt out of the “re-education” video which “effectively forces the students to speak in agreement with the school district’s view that homosexuality is a safe and healthy lifestyle that cannot be changed.” (source).
“Government shall not substantially burden a person’s freedom of religion. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be substantially burdened unless the government proves by clear and convincing evidence that it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A “burden” shall include indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facilities.” (source).
“I’ve weighed the cost and I’m prepared to go to jail, I sure am,” Mrs. Davis said in an exclusive interview. “This has never been a gay or lesbian issue for me. This is about upholding the word of God. This is a heaven or hell issue for me and for every other Christian that believes,” she said. “This is a fight worth fighting.” (source).
Davis and her husband have received death threats in emails and phone calls. So much so that they have no changed their phone numbers. “She’s getting death threats. People are saying that her home should be burned that she should be raped in front of her husband,” Mat Staver, Davis’ attorney said. “She has no ill will toward anybody.” (source).
Many media outlets and journalists assailed Davis for her many marriages and children out-of-wedlock – completely omitting that this was a product of her life before becoming a Christian. Below is a clip ofDan Savage, a LGBT activist who Beginning and End has previously covered for attacking the Christian faith and young Christian students, criticizing Davis for her sinful lifestyle and using the Bible to try to justify his condemnation.
To her critics and members of the LGBT community, Davis’ message was clear:
“All I can say to them is if they have a sordid past like what I had, they too can receive the cleansing and renewing, and they can start a fresh life and they can be different. They don’t have to remain in their sin. There’s hope for tomorrow.” (source).
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. – 1 Peter 3:12-15.
- Chase Windebank a freshman at Pine Creek High School in Colorado was admonished by the school for his Christian expression. As a part of the school schedule, students are given a “seminar” period where they can socialize, send text messages or play video games on their personal devices among other leisure activities. Windebank used his free time to set up a prayer group with friends where they would also sing worship songs and have Biblical discussion. For three years the group met twice per week until September 2014, when Windebank was called to the Assistant Principal’s office and told that he had to cease praying during school hours due to “separation of church and state.” All the other activities students were doing during the free time was allowed to continue. Windebank is currently pursuing an injunction with assistance from lawyers at the Alliance Defending Freedom. (source).
- Real estate gurus and twin brothers Jason and David Benham saw their HGTV show on real estate flipping cancelled before it ever aired thanks to complaints over their Christian position on gay marriage. (source).
- At Florida Atlantic University a Professor told students to write the name of Jesus on a piece of paper, place it on the floor and stomp on it as part of lesson in “Intercultural Communication.” (source).
- An Orange County, California couple was fined for holding a home Bible study without obtaining a permit from their local municipality. (source).
- At Sonoma State University in Northern California, a student was ordered to remove the 2-inch cross on her necklace before attending an orientation for incoming students because it was “offensive.” (source).
- 10-year old Erin Shead was punished for writing about God as her class assignment on who she looked up the most to in the world. Not only did her teacher tell her that she could not mention God or Jesus Christ in an assignment, she was ordered to remove the essay from school grounds. (source).
- A similar incident occurred at Calvary Baptist Church in Chickasha, Oklahoma where a Molotov cocktail that failed to ignite was found next to the church building. No suspect has been arrested. Pastor Tim Day, who discovered the explosive, shared his compassion for whoever tried to burn down the church. “We love them. We care about them,” he said. “That’s what we’re called to do.”And even though fire from the concoction didn’t spread, the pastor is hoping the church’s revival will. “We forgive them. We accept them, but we need to just protect our property, and we don’t want anything serious to happen to that.” (source).
- In South Carolina, 9 Christians attending a Bible study were gunned down by alleged suspect Dylann Roof in what was an act of racial hatred. Following the shooting as many as seven predominately African American churches were burned down. In the case of Briar Creek Road Baptist Church, pictured above, officials ruled the fire an intentional act of arson.
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. – Luke 14:27-35.
