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."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

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;

Sex, Etc. and Texas in July means pro-abortion in PA
As a Christian and a pro-life advocate from time to time it comes to one's attention that not all which purports itself to be Christian is authentically Christ centered. Such an example is the so-called "Christian" metal group from Lancaster, PA who call themselves "Texas in July". Recently the group took up as part of a tour for the benefit of the website "Sex, etc." The premise of the site is "sex education for teens, by teens". The site, plainly speaking, takes up any number of themes which are clearly not Christian in tone. For instance, the sites forums address such issues as masturbati0n techniques, the merits of anal sex, graphic discussions about genitalia, the use of p0rnography in sex, homosexuality/transgender issues, advice on birth control for minors and not least, disucssions about sex between minors and adults, aka, statutory ****. Most notable is the websites outright support of abortion and America's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

Sex, etc. is not a marginal website. At 9AM eastern time at the time of this writing the site had varyingly 600-1000 visitors. "Texas in July" has more than 24,000 followers on Facebook alone and their fans have been turning out in great numbers online to support the band. The group for their part released a statement on Facebook stating that they do not support abortion and are at a loss for the "hurtful" things that are being said about them. The real question at hand is whether or not any group or organization can call itself Christian and still by extension endorse America's largest provider of abortion. None of the afore mentioned forum topics on Sex, etc. are things which any Christian group with any legitimacy could endorse, propose or excuse. Understandably people are concerned not about who listens to what kind of music, but about what kind of example is being set by members of a group who bill themselves as a Christian music act.

Clearly Texas in July has the right to perfom any kind of music they want to whatever audience they choose. This is not a question of free speech or artistic sensorship. People are rightfully concerned however that through music, which has the power to inspire, inform, motivate and to cause change, has by virtue of the public stand taken by it's creators, the power to tacitally approve abortion, which is so clearly in opposition to the Christian message. In these confused and often violent times in which we live, it is important that the Christian seal of approval be an authentic one. The followers of Texas in July on Facebook and their concert goers are largely younger members of our society, a great many who are teens, who are most deeply touched by the concerns of birth control, sexuality and the impact of legalized abortion. That they should be given a message, not only in contrast, but in direct opposition to the Christ's message of life, is deeply troubling.

Consider that this website even has a link, called Sex in the States, which provides a click-on map to research the various state laws so teens can learn where birth control and abortion can be attained without parental consent. This is virtually custom made for the off the book practices that Lila Rose and Live Action have exposed showing Planned Parenthood counselors advising teens to cross state lines for abortions. By supporting Sex, etc. they have become little more than a surrogate for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. In the post Kermit Gosnell America of dubious abortion referrals in the name of "health care" this can be not only an un-Christian proposition, but conceivably and potentially dangerous one. Parents need to beware of others who are either negligent of their childrens welfare or do not truly have their best interests at heart. The right to artistic expression does not include attaching the name of Jesus Christ to one's own uninformed or poorly formed value systems. Texas in July, a Christian metal band? Let the buyer beware.
