The Liberty Bell and Leviticus 25: 10


On July 8, 1776, the Liberty Bell rang from the tower of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, summoning citizens to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon  (Lieutenant-Colonel in the Third Battalion of Associators) from the steps of the State House.

10And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

The bell, which was adopted as a symbol of freedom by the abolitionist movement, as it was used as a frontispiece to an 1837 edition of Liberty, published by the New York Anti-Slavery Society. is inscribed on the bottom with scripture from the book of Leviticus of God’s Word.  It reads “Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” The words inscribed were quoted from the tenth verse of the 25th Chapter of Leviticus, of the King James version of the Holy Bible. The entire verse proclaims: 10And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

While enjoying the holiday commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence, it is appropriate to remember that the very first call to liberty from the tyranny of the British crown rang from a bell inscribed with the freedom of spirit that comes with adhering to God’s righteousness. On July 4, 1776, the signers of the Declaration of Independence. “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” mutually pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

The Progressive Assault on Christian Higher Education


Seattle Pacific University, which proclaims on its website that it is “a place where 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students gain a superb education grounded on the gospel of Jesus Christ — and the tools to influence the world for good”, is in the midst of a full blown attack by Satan’s LGBTQ army.  In an article posted at The Falcon, SPU student Athena Duran featured students whom are members of The Haven, an LGBTQ club that is sanctioned by the university.  It focused on the comfort and/ or discomfort felt by these students in a Christian environment.  Given the fact that the university has even hosted an LGBTQ leadership conference, one has to question the spiritual discernment of the members of the faculty and administration at Seattle Pacific.

As followers of Christ, believers should be welcoming to all people.  However, they should not be condoning conduct that is sinful according to God’s Holy Word, regardless of how uncomfortable it makes those who insist on continuing in the debauchery of a reprobate lifestyle.

 

Many students at SPU have been grumbling at the hiring of Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Sandra Mayo, whom reportedly holds the position of adhering to “Biblical standards” on sexuality.  Such complaining prompts one of a reasonable mind to ask the question, “If one is opposed to the adherence to Biblical standards, why would he or she choose to attend a Christian oriented university in the first place?”

South Carolina and Baylor Players Honor Jesus After March Madness Contest


For all of the controversy and scrutiny that has been directed toward Baylor’s athletic program, it would only be fair to give them credit for honoring Jesus.  After their loss to South Carolina in Friday night’s NCAA Sweet Sixteen game, the Bear and Gamecock players joined in a circle and engaged in prayer acknowledging the Majesty of Our Lord Jesus.

Jesus: No Ordinary Teacher (Part 1)


Indeed, Jesus is the Master Teacher, giving us life’s lessons as only He knows we are able to handle them.

Teaching.

We would all be dead without it. Consider this. Somewhere along the line, you were taught everything you know and do today.

We all go through a process of learning the bare essentials. The toilet training stage. Learning how to eat and drink. Walk and talk. Then as we walk through life, we begin to understand more complex lessons. Skills like how to read and write. How to tie your shoes. How to cook. How to apologise. How to interact with one another.

Some are still learning those lessons. But truth is, we all are. Anyone who claims to know everything is delusional. The fact that we are in the 21st century, part of society as we know it today, is thanks to our ongoing learning over hundreds of years.

You see, life is a great teacher.

Teaching is part of the fabric of life, and we are students to it

Iraqi Kurd Fashion Club Displaying Minds of Independence


In lockstep with prophecy mentioned in God’s Holy Word in the book of Isaiah, the Kurdish people in Iraq (Medes) are showing a spirit of independence that is not noticeably displayed by the other peoples of the war torn region.

In the Iraqi Kurdish capital of Erbil, a group of men have established a fashion club called Mr. Erbil, which supports the livelihood of local tailors and craftsmen.  Such a spirit of supporting their fellow man is indeed the kind of concern for neighbors that can stop terror groups like ISIS in their tracks.  Such rays of hope and optimism may indeed make the misery marketed by Islamic terror groups less and less palatable to the peoples of the region.
