I am an expert sinner. And I deserve punishment because I have willingly separated myself from God with my sin. But Jesus has taken away my guilt and reconciled me to God! How can I help but rejoice at receiving this wonderful gift that I could not possibly earn by my own efforts? Praise God!

Student leaders at the University of Oregon debated removing a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. from its student center, arguing that the quote was not inclusive enough for modern understandings of diversity.Modern academia is turning into a cesspool of toxic identity politics, so it is not exactly surprising the campus lynch mobs are now going after Martin Luther King. All totalitarian movements require kangaroo courts and witch hunts in order to terrorize the proles into submission and maintain power.
Oregon’s Erb Memorial Union, which is currently under renovation, had the following famous King quote on the wall: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream…”
But as renovation continues, the Oregon Student Union seriously considered replacing that quote. “The quote is not going to change,” reports student paper Oregon Daily Emerald, “but that decision was not made without some hard thought by the Student Union Board.”
The targeting of Martin Luther King is not accidental or random, but purposeful. If someone as revered as King can be purged by our self-anointed moral and intellectual betters then no one is safe.
Here is a thought designed to keep you awake at night. The student leaders behind this failed purge will one day become judges and political leaders with real power over our lives. And as their power grows I suspect their intolerance will grow as well. How would you like to be on the receiving end of their wrath when that happens?

Psalm 118:21-23 (KJV)
If there is one thing the world loves to do, it is to judge people. We have reality shows dedicated to "voting" people off the island, out of the house, etc. If you don't have the media-approved views on politics, sexuality, marriage, and the environment, you are branded a "bigot". If you are not young and/or are overweight, the world looks down on you as being inferior.
God looks beyond the superficial things that the world believes to be of overwhelming importance and can see your heart. The world will judge the outside, but God sees the inside. Open your heart to the One who love you, not the world that demands conformity.

Jerimiah 1:5 (KJV)

Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 (KJV)
The devil and his denizens in Hell have limited imaginations. The same lame calls we hear today for the Church to change and adapt to the world's morality have been going on for thousands of years.

Matthew 5:43-48 (KJV)
Nothing is easier than to love those who love us. Nothing is harder than to love those who hate us. Pray to God for the strength to turn the other cheek and not retaliate in kind when others mock and persecute you.
We are in a spiritual battle that we cannot win on our own strength. We cannot answer a curse with a curse, or a blow with a blow. Instead, the Lord will do battle for us. Let Him take command!

Psalm 121:1-2 (KJV)

Asia Bibi has a message for her tormentors.
That message is: I forgive you.
Christmas is the celebration of God’s mercy. I forgive my persecutors, those who have falsely accused me, and I await their forgiveness. . . . Jesus made this happy day for me and has accepted my prayers. . . . But, although I have been in prison for seven years, I do not hate those who did me wrong. . . . I pray that Jesus Christ will grant peace to the whole world.
The online petition calling for mercy for Asia Bibi can still be found here.
For those who do not know who she is, here is the story about Asia Bibi's unjust imprisonment and death sentence for "blasphemy" against the Prophet Muhammad.
Please pray for Asia Bibi and her family. Also, please pray for those who are risking their lives to free her.
Habakkuk 2:1 (KJV)
This is the prophet Habakkuk's promise to wait for God to answer his questions. When we ask something of God, we should not demand an answer right away. Sometimes God will want for us to wait until we are ready to receive His answer.

Isaiah 6:8 (KJV)
God uses people in their weakness, not their strength. Weakness will mean that you will rely on Him rather than your own power. Let God use your weakness and rejoice!
