About Shayn Roby

I am someone who aims to make our world a better place, by engaging one person at a time. I am learning to be more civil toward people with viewpoints different from my own. Perhaps showing true compassion towards others and achieving mutual understanding is the best way to achieve that goal. I am a public school educator and am devoted to inspiring my students to seek knowledge and to think for themselves. I also seek to be a Christlike for them and everyone else, each and every day.

God and Genocide


J. Warner Wallace, the author of Cold Case Christianity gave a very interesting take on  as to whether God arbitrarily destroyed entire groups of people on his You Tube channel.

The well renowned Biblical apologist explained how God only exercised his wrath after giving repeated warnings and opportunities to repent from evil. This mercy was often extended over periods of even hundreds of years.

Plagues, Pestilence and God’s Word


Presently, our world and nation are under plagues and pestilence that appear to be of apocalyptic proportions.   Indeed, it’s even accurate to say that much of what is happening is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.  The President of The United States of America has declared the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus to be a national emergency.   Several counties in the state of Tennessee are still in the recovery stages from a deadly tornado that struck last week, and then the rest of the state (along with virtually the rest of the nation) has been brought to a near standstill due to the spread of nCoVID-2019.

As these examples of plagues and pestilence are evident, Americans should be wary of embracing the culture of sin and death that much of the world’s population is attempting to make an accepted and mainstream part of everyday life.  Former President Joe Biden has the audacity to mention COVID-19 and the LGBTQ agenda on the very same campaign page.  One shouldn’t believe for a second that those who embrace Joe Biden’s platform of defiance against God’s Word won’t be invoking the wrath of The Great I Am into their lives.   Joe Biden is in full attack mode against those who would choose to take a stand for God’s Word with regard to His abhorrence of the harmful practice of engaging in same gender sexual activity and the genocide/ infanticide of His most precious gifts to our world.

Dr. Michael Brown exposed and addressed the former VPOTUS’s assault on Christianity in an article at The Stream.  Dr. Brown also spoke about the Bible, the coronavirus, and the end times recently on his Ask Dr. Brown segment on Patreon.

Church of England Sides with “Modern Culture”


The recent announcement by the Church of England naming Stephen Cottrell as the Archbishop of York is very troubling from the perspective of most Christians who view the Holy Bible as God’s Word.   To many Christians, the use of the authoritarianism of Catholicism to promote the subjectivism of Liberalism by Cottrell signals a willingness to bow to the power of the Zeitgeist rather than the authority of The Word of God.

 

 

As the left attempts to hang labels such as “homophobe”, “transphobe”, or “hater” on anyone who dares to cite God’s Word with regard to same gender sexual relations and/ or gender identity confusion, it’s fair to point out that in fact, the progressives are engaging in the very intolerance that they denounce by demonizing those that choose to do what is deemed righteous to our Lord and Savior.

God’s Sense of Humor


Sometimes God answers prayer when we need it most, and even uses His sense of humor to let us know it was indeed Him who took care of our needs.

Two teens swimming in the ocean found themselves drifting and in trouble recently. They prayed for help and were rescued by a boat named “Amen”.

“Unplanned” Fighting for the Unborn


The opening of the pro-life movie Unplanned made quite an impact at the box office this past weekend as it netted $6.274 million.    The movie’s website characterizes it as a  “heart-stopping personal drama of life-and-death encounters, a courtroom battle, and spiritual transformation that speaks hope and compassion into the political controversy that surrounds” the issue of abortion.

The movie is gut-wrenching.  It is an up-front, reality check with regard to the brutal slaying of America’s unborn children.  It tackles the reality of the mental anguish and emotional distress associated with snuffing out the most precious gifts that God can give.

Memphis Theological Seminary: False Doctrine


In response to the horrific shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand that was allegedly carried out by 28 year old Australian Brenton Harrison Tarrant, Memphis Theological Seminary, which is affiliated with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, made an unfortunate and appalling concession that should be alarming to every Christian. They used the term “Islamophobia”, even though the use of the term implies that it’s actually acceptable to deny the Deity of Jesus Christ.

“Memphis Theological Seminary stands in solidarity with the persons, families, and larger communities devastated by the armed violence committed on March 15th, 2019 at and around the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Center in Christchurch, New Zealand. As Christians attentive to and called to love all of our neighbors, our response to this violence must be clear: supremacist ideologies and the violence they spawn are antithetical to the Gospel message in which we ground our identity. As Christians we respond in love and truth condemning Islamophobia in all forms. We extend prayers, support, and love to those affected and devastated by this horrific violence. We hold our neighbors—our Muslim brothers and sisters–in our hearts and in our prayers.”

The response mentions the “Gospel message”, “Islamophobia”, and “supremacist ideologies” in the same paragraph, even as it’s common knowledge among even the slightly intellectually curious population that the Deity of Christ is repeatedly denied within the pages of the Qu’aran.  (As if opposing the false doctrine of Islam somehow makes one a participant in supremacist ideology.  It doesn’t, and such an irresponsible implication, however subtle it may be, is downright disgusting.)

Such blatantly false doctrine being tolerated by an institution that trains ministers of Christ should be alarming to every follower of The Way.  It’s apparent that “Chrislam” is being readily endorsed by the administration of Memphis Theological Seminary.  If it fails to issue a retraction to its statement, then members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church should seriously consider finding another Christian body with which to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Live Action: On first day of Congress, Democrats push for more tax-funded abortion


As the politically savvy and spiritually well-grounded Alan Eason pointed out on social media, the Democrats have begun “their journey by doing their sacramental service at the temple of Moloch…”.  And so the demonic aims of the Democratic party’s culture of death starts on their very first day in which they have the majority in the United States of House of Representatives.
