So, I would call upon my fellow Christians to "stand". Don't give an inch. And may God help us. Amen

I began writing this piece on �Good Friday,� the day upon which we Christians remember the crucifixion, death, and entombment of Christ.

Christians have waited since for the sun to rise on this Sunday, Easter morning.

Today, Easter Sunday, we rejoice as we celebrate Christ�s resurrection, his victory over death, hell, and the grave. The Christian faith is founded upon the events of the period from Christ�s arrest until his ascension.

Sadly, today the tenets of the Christian faith have been turned and are now being used by those of little or no faith against the Christian Church.

Where are the Christian warriors? (Maybe we need a modern day Knights Templar organization to confront those who have turned America on its head. Just a thought.)

America used to be a Christian nation. She can not lay claim to that title any longer.

End-of-age prophecy about Babylon:

Isaiah 13:19 And Babylon, the beauty of kingdoms, the glory of the Chaldeans' pride, Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.


Sodom and Gomorrah also had a corrupt judiciary and a wicked society in general. The Book of Jashar [which reportedly used to be part of the canonical text of the Bible] tells more about it. Jashar is mentioned twice in the Bible.

Joshua 10:13 So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar?

2 Samuel 1:18 and he told them to teach the sons of Judah the song of the bow; behold, it is written in the book of Jashar.

Chapter 19 Book of Jasher [tells about Sodom and Gomorrah]

1 And the cities of Sodom had four judges to four cities, and these were their names, Serak in the city of Sodom, Sharkad in Gomorrah, Zabnac in Admah, and Menon in Zeboyim.

2 And Eliezer Abraham's servant applied to them different names, and he converted Serak to Shakra, Sharkad to Shakrura, Zebnac to Kezobim, and Menon to Matzlodin.

3 And by desire of their four judges the people of Sodom and Gomorrah had beds erected in the streets of the cities, and if a man came to these places they laid hold of him and brought him to one of their beds, and by force made him to lie in them.

4 And as he lay down, three men would stand at his head and three at his feet, and measure him by the length of the bed, and if the man was less than the bed these six men would stretch him at each end, and when he cried out to them they would not answer him.

5 And if he was longer than the bed they would draw together the two sides of the bed at each end, until the man had reached the gates of death.

6 And if he continued to cry out to them, they would answer him, saying, Thus shall it be done to a man that cometh into our land.

7 And when men heard all these things that the people of the cities of Sodom did, they refrained from coming there.

8 And when a poor man came to their land they would give him silver and gold, and cause a proclamation in the whole city not to give him a morsel of bread to eat, and if the stranger should remain there some days, and die from hunger, not having been able to obtain a morsel of bread, then at his death all the people of the city would come and take their silver and gold which they had given to him.
