Lighthouse Trails has announced an official new name. There are currently no other details available at this time….we believe that if one peruses their website the name change is probably fitting.

Blast from the Past ODM News strikes again——John Hagee says “Israel’s time of need is now. There is a new Hitler in the Middle East –President Ahmadinejad of Iran — who has threatened to wipe out Israel and America and is rapidly acquiring the nuclear technology to make good on his threat.” We all agree that
Apparently there is a new Hitler in the middle east. The last war that Iran was involved with was Iraq...a US proxy. Other than the Iran-Iraq war Iran has not be involved in a war in 200 yrs.
Can John Hagee honestly really believe that Iran will take on the new role as WW2 German? Has he studied the history of his own country (No doubt from a very carefully sanitized history book)?
History be damned….we should not let progaganda get in the way of facts!
We ODMs also must concur with John Hagee because Western countries are always good, and God is on OUR side….God is a nationalist and a patriot…especially and always rooting for America….and we’re pretty sure the Bible says that somewhere….may in a foot note.
We must also come against Obama who wants to negotiate with Iran. As bible believing Christians we should smote our enemies, take them out, use force, power and military might….just as Jesus commanded. Obama obviously is a weak wristed liberal that should use nukes to fight with nukes.
Trust us. We know.

I have read the following and therefore this is both a statement and question “Chapter 18 of Revelation contains the heart of John’s critique: (a) the idolatrous worship of the harlot, “fornication,” that demands loyalty and conformity; (b) Babylon’s violence, especially toward people of faith; (c) Babylon’s smug self-glorification and the high value it placed on power; and (d) Babylon’s materialism and unjust economics. When we look critically at the entire experience of the U.S. in the 1991 war against Iraq, we can see many parallels, not the least of which is the practical atheism of U.S. foreign policy. “

We are not sure why you would believe such a preposterous thing. We cannot possibly be Babylon! When does the USA call for absolute conformity? I mean when we go to war against Third World Nations….but that is because we are under terrible threat by such aggressive countries such as Nicaragua, Grenada, Iran, Iraq, Honduras and so on.
Look around we’re really not that materialistic….certainly not as bad as commie countries or totalitarian ones. Besides foreign policy is solely based on the bible. Also, I must strongly caution you (STOP!!!) looking critically with the respect of the two wars in Iraq in both 1991 and 2003…remember they are clearly the bad guys. True bible believing-naturalized-christian-republicans never question war. To question war is to be liberal. Its ok to protest the unborn, just don’t protest against young adults going off to fight for their tribe country by getting their brains blown out. That’s different. We need to fight for whatever lie our government tells us to fight for. Remember Jesus calls us sheep for a reason.
Also keep in mind that in 2003 Iraq was ready to invade and pounce on us at any moment with their military might that had a budget that was slightly smaller than Canada’s. Clearly that is a threat that we must contend with. Keep that in mind the next time you don’t want to go to war.

We applaud the Christian Research Network Mission statement that suggests “In Scripture the Apostle Paul wrote that he did not want the Church to be ignorant of the enemy’s devices.” Fortunately CRN is here to teach us about ignorance. For in ignorance, we can defend truth through a framework of sensationalism, circular logic, and clear discernmentalist teachings. CRN further states “ Any good coach of a sports team knows that coaching involves studying the opposing team’s strategies in order to prepare the team to win. But unfortunately the Church has not been studying the enemy’s devices” We encourage ALL our up and coming discernmentalists to study the opposing team, and be so good at understanding the counterfeit that you will glorify God by knowing all about false teaching. You can also glorify God about all the negative things you can point out about other groups. You can also glory in your ignorance of scripture…because like a good discernmentalist you will have spent your time studying the enemies tactics.
