September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Campaign Calls Christians to Recognize the Image of God in Gays, Liberals, and Every Human

 A new campaign launched by prominent Evangelical leaders is intended to “change the discussion” on a number of cultural issues. The Imago Dei project—headed by Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Coaltion; Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family; actress Roma Downy; and others—calls on Christians to affirm that “every human being, in and out of the womb, carries the image of God; without exception.Therefore, I will treat everyone with love and respect.”

According the website, Christians are too often defined by opposition:

“Accordingly, followers of Christ should be known not by what we oppose but rather by what we propose; a personal relationship with God through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

Rodriguez says the campaign is not intended to focus on any particular group or orientation. Rather, the purpose is to affirm and highlight central truths from Scripture:

“The Imago Dei campaign does not sacrifice truth on the altar of cultural or political expediency but rather it elevates it on the catalytic stand of grace and love.”

But that message may already be getting lost. Time magazine’s Swampland blog misses the main purpose of the campaign and zeroes in on gay marriage:

“That change in tone is significant for organizations that have used the image of God doctrine to defend their opposition to gay marriage. A position paper still posted on the Focus on the Family website says: ‘Focus on the Family is dedicated to defending the honor, dignity and value of the two sexes as created in God’s image—intentionally male and female—each bringing unique and complementary qualities to sexuality and relationships.’ When asked whether or not that position page would change given the Imago Dei Campaign, Daly did not say, but he clarified that affirming the image of God in people does not condone their behavior.”

Leaders of the Imago Dei campaign are highlighting their message through social media channels, public service announcements on radio and TV, and apparel.
