Rom 12:1-2

“1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye PRESENT YOUR BODIES A LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY, ACCEPTABLE UNTO GOD, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but BE YE TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

“1ASI que, hermanos, os ruego por las misericordias de Dios, que presentéis vuestros cuerpos en sacrificio vivo, santo, agradable á Dios, que es vuestro racional culto. 2Y no os conforméis á este siglo; mas reformaos por la renovación de vuestro entendimiento, para que experimentéis cuál sea la buena voluntad de Dios, agradable y perfecta.”


The Truth is that our youth are all precious before the Lord! We the church are praying for you to take the precious seed of Jesus Christ to the world that needs Jesus.

We spoke about this body and how we receive all things into our heart, mind and soul. We’ve come to realize that we live in a world that tries to set the standards by which we live by, the attitudes by which we live by.

The truth is that without Jesus, we are living in darkness.

People say, “That’s Bad man!” “That’s wicked!”

They are saying “THAT’S GOOD.”

Is it coincidence what the Bible says?

Isaiah 5:20

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

“Ay de los que á lo malo dicen bueno, y á lo bueno malo; que hacen de la luz tinieblas, y de las tinieblas luz; que ponen lo amargo por dulce, y lo dulce por amargo!”

Instead of improving our young people are living in a degenerate time.

It used to be when this country prayed before each school day, the Bible was part of the curriculum, you could say Merry Christmas in school.

Q: But the country is falling apart! The crime rate is skyrocketing, we’ve got polluted air and everything is just getting worse! Haven ’t we abandoned God?

A: Now there’s something we could debate all day. But do a little historical research, and you will find that in many respects we are living better, longer and more productive lives than our predecessors did just 50 or 75 years ago. Think about the improvements to our lives which science and technology has brought us. That is one reason why Atheists are often pro-technology! We see the liberatory potential of science and technology to make life better in the here and now, rather than waiting to die so we can exist as spirits in some heavenly amusement park.

There are problems. Sometimes they are exaggerated by people who have a political or religious axe to grind. For instance, violent crime in the country has actually remained fairly steady over the years, at least as long as records have been maintained. The country is changing, and so is the make-up of our economy, our population, and our social institutions. These changes are not always bad, especially if they facilitate human freedom and civil liberties.

The point is this: we don’t want to be fooled into believing that we have some "state of emergency" that requires us to ignore our First Amendment and allow some theocracy to develop.

You tell me, what is happening to this nation?

The founding of American Atheists and later - Madalyn Murray O’Hair

Following the Supreme Court decision, she founded American Atheists, "a nationwide movement which defends the civil rights of non-believers, works for the separation of church and state, and addresses issues of First Amendment public policy." She acted as its first CEO before later handing that office on to her son Jon Garth.

In 1965, Madalyn married Richard O’Hair. Throughout the 1970s, she publicly debated religious leaders on a variety of issues and also produced an atheist radio program in which she criticized religion and theism. She filed lawsuits on many issues over which she felt there was a collusion of church and state in violation of the Constitution. At this point, Richard O’Hair disappeared from her life.
