The Common Ills Iraq snapshot
Iraq snapshot Monday, July 6, 2015. Chaos and violence continue, an Iraqi war plane drops a bomb on a civilian area (and it's not Falluja), Barack launches into a lengthy Iraq 'update,' and much more.
Today, US President Barack Obama spoke publicly about the Islamic State. The address took place at the Pentagon or, as ABC News put it, the address took place "in a rare visit to the Pentagon."
In other words, he may have visited all 50 states, but the Pentagon's never really been on his travel itinerary.
Dana Milbank (Washington Post) also noted the "rare visit" nature:
Obama had used the phrase before, but this was shock-and-awe-worthy — the commander in chief, in a rare visit to Defense Department headquarters, standing onstage with grim-faced and medal-festooned generals and likening war strategy to . . . an arcade game.
Milbank noted Barack "had used the phrase before."
But the person who applied it to Iraq first and most persistently... (more)

This letter is in regard to my association with John
I first met John in 1973. I found his information on the occult
fascinating. We worked together on a Crusaders story entitled, "The Broken
Cross." Since its publication I know of witches coming to Christ through this
story. A police captain visited a friend of mine and told him the book was the
most factual he had ever read on the subject.
John Todd began winning
young people out of the occult. His ministry started growing. When John took
these young people to a church called "Melodyland" in Southern California, I
was told they announced... (more)
Truth in Love The Cross and the Mass
" TRUE AND FALSE WORSHIP: "
THE CROSS VS. MASS
Author: Richard Bennett
Worshiping God is that communion that exists in true harmony between the Creator and the creature man.
A. Before the Fall,
1. There were no restraints on relationship between God and
Adam. God spoke to Adam, laying out for him hi duties, instructing him
concerning his environment (Genesis 1:28-30), created a help meet for
him (Genesis 2:21-22).
2. Adam had only external restraint, "Of the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that
thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Genesis 2:17).
B. At the Fall, the relationship between God and Adam was severed by Adam’s sin (Genesis 3:6-8).

Message Title: A Place For God
Hello My Friend,
Some people spend their entire lives in one home, while others move so often that you cannot keep up with them. There is a saying, “Home is where the heart is.” And it could not be further from the truth, if our heart is not into what we are doing, we are going to feel lost. An amazing thing happens the second we ask Jesus Christ into our heart, the Holy Spirit moves in, that means we have twenty-four hour access to God no matter where we are. So why do we suffer so much? We do not let the Holy Spirit get settled into to His place, and call it home. “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through... (more)
