For a Piece of Bread

In a famine, what would you give for a piece of bread? Famines and other crises have been used for thousands of years to concentrate the wealth, power, and control of the masses into the hands of a few. In my latest article, For a Piece of Bread, I look at how the Communists in Ethiopia used this ancient tactic as they exploited and exacerbated the 1980’s famine to solidify their control over the people and warns of how it is being implemented by the globalists today.

The Pecking Order

Just posted my latest article, The Pecking Order.
Establishing a social pecking order, or dominance hierarchy as sociologist like to refer to it, in human societies can be difficult, even violent and cruel. So far as chickens go, it is because the world is under a curse. But, with people, we have the added dimension of a fallen, sin nature. Thankfully, God has provided a better way.

2 New Radio Spots

We are continuing to add 60 second radio spots on AM 1420 The Answer in Cleveland, Ohio. The Answer is the sister station to AM 1220 The Word, which airs our programs in the Cleveland area.

Our fifth radio spot is Who Is Sovereign In America?

Our sixth radio spot is Are You a SAGE Con?

Hopefully, we will be adding two more next week.

Recent Program with Gary Kah on Globalist Economy

Gary Kah joined me on the air Friday, September 30, to discuss the rise of central bank digital currencies (CBDC's), Biden's 9 March 2022 Executive Order 14067, Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets, and the move to a unified global plans for a coming digital one-world economic system. These things are not the Mark of the Beast foretold in the Bible -- yet. But they are setting the stage for it:

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)"

As we see the stage set for the coming global antichrist system, we should not be overwhelmed or anxious. If you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour then you can take comfort in His words

"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)

Pastor Al Addresses Biden's Recent Soul of the Nation Speech

Joe Biden's Soul of the Nation speech on Thursday night was perhaps the most macabre and disturbing speeches I have ever seen. All he needed was the The Imperial March (Darth Vader's theme song) playing in the background.

Two verses came to mind while watching the speech:

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." (2 Timothy 3:13)

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Ephesians 6:12)

Able to Update Web Pages Again!

Finally able to update our web pages. It was, as I had thought, a password related issue.

We had a good time at the Summit County Fair at the end of July. The crowds were good and we were able to do a good bit of "ploughing and planting" during the week.

On Sunday, August 7, I celebrated 25 years as the pastor of the Richfield Bible Baptist Church. I preached and we had a great time of fellowship with a wonderful dinner after the service.

Bills to Watch at the Ohio Statehouse

On Friday's radio program, 1 July 2022, I commented on Joshua 13:1 where God tells Joshua that, after a lifetime of service, there is still much to do:

Now Joshua was old and stricken in years; and the LORD said unto him, Thou art old and stricken in years, and there remaineth yet very much land to be possessed.

Based on that passage, I pointed out that, even with the victories we have experienced lately with the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe and upholding religious freedoms, we still have "very much land to be possessed."

Just in Ohio, I pointed out that the Heartbeat Bill, which went into effect after Roe was overturned, is facing renewed legal challenges. I also pointed out several bills in the Ohio Statehouse that Christians should be speaking to their state representatives and senators about, plus I just heard of another:

How Can I Tell A Good Church from A Bad One?

A caller asked a great question last night about how to find a good church. That reminded me of an article that I wrote several years ago on this very subject:

Looking for a church can be a daunting task. Should I pick Baptist, Catholic, Methodist, Pentecostal, Nondenominational, or something else? Should I go to the "fastest growing church in town," the "friendliest church around," or the "church on the move." Do I want contemporary, traditional, casual, structured, or unstructured services? Would I feel more spiritual worshiping at that historic downtown building or be more comfortable in the new architectural marvel out by the interstate? What's the difference anyway-aren't all churches essentially the same? How can I tell a good church from a bad one?...

New Article: A Shocking Statistic!

The average American Christian has become like the Red Queen in Lewis Carroll's classic novel, Through the Looking Glass, who said to Alice, "Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." ... Our nation, our people, and our churches have rejected of God and His Word. Today, we are reaping the bitter fruits of that rejection. But, can anything be done about this? Can we reverse these shocking statistics?

Memorial Day at the Ohio Veterans Memorial Park

Memorial Day, 2022, at the Ohio Veterans Memorial Park in Clinton, Ohio. The Park is open 24/7 so we came down to visit after our Sunday night radio program. Seeing the Wall of Remembrance and the Gold Star mother and father statues at 1 AM as opposed to 1 PM has a different, more somber, feel. Hope you had a safe and blessed Memorial Day.

A Shocking Statistic!

This past Sunday evening Pastor John Lutz of North Coast Bptist Church, in Lakewood, Ohio, joined me on our Sunday night program. We discussed a recent Barna survey reporting that 62% of America's pastors lack a Biblical worldview. Instead, according to Barna, they "possess a hybrid worldview known as Syncretism."

The American Restoration Tour

My wife and I spent Monday morning, May 23, at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. State Representative Gary Click, Pastor of Fremont Baptist Temple in Fremot, Ohio, sponsored an American Restoration Tour event in the Statehouse atrium with Faith Wins Founder Chad Connelly, Faith Wins Ohio Director Josiah Kagin, Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Kettering, Ohio, and Christian historian David Barton of WallBuilders.

Afterwards, we walked around the Statehouse, checking out the historical displays and the Statehouse Museum before heading home.

Breaking News: Back on the Radio in Tampa, Florida!

Our Sunday evening program, Late Night Live with Pastor Al, will be returning to Faith Talk Tampa on Sunday, May 15! We have been praying about getting back on the air in Tampa for some time but were waiting on the Lord. Now, we are thanking God for raising up an anonymous donor to fund an entire year on Faith Talk Tampa.

Gearing up for the new program, I have put together a promo for the Florida stations, which is already running, and will be interviewed on the Bill Bunkley Show this Friday, May 13, on Faith Talk Tampa. The interview should be about 5:35 PM.

We were last on in Florida four years ago. We received a number of donations which enabled us to be on the air 2016 through 2018. Now due to a generous doner, we were able to pay for an entire year upfront, in advance. And, it looks like funds will be available to pay for a second year as welll when we get there.

Happy Easter!

1Co 15:12-26

(12) Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

(13) But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:

(14) And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

(15) Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

(16) For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

(17) And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

(18) Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

(19) If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

(20) But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

(21) For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

(22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

(23) But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

(24) Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

(25) For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

(26) The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

 

Easter is a celebration of the most important event in history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ, not a bunny hiding colored eggs. Read my articles to see why it is important to know what day Jesus was crucified on and why the word Easter is an acceptable, historic, Biblical word that you should not be afraid to use:

New Article: Were the Founding Fathers Prolife?

If the Founding Father's meant, in the Declaration of Independence, that we have the right to life, meaning the right to life itself, then that would explain why they later wrote in the Bill of Rights, in the Fifth Amendment, that "…nor shall any person…be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law". And again, later, in the Fourteenth Amendment, "nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law". These two amendments make it clear that the Founding Fathers held to the sanctity of human life, believing that neither the federal government, nor the state governments, should be allowed to capriciously deprive any person of life.

Russia, Ukraine, and Ezekiel 38

Russia and Ukraine have held the attention of much of the world recently. Putin has been moving troops, materials, and military equipment into position prompting many to expect Russia to invade the Ukraine imminently.

But what if Russia has something else in mind? This past Sunday night I speculated on the radio that perhaps Putin might be using the threat to invade Ukraine in the north to divert the world's attention from his actual plans further south, in the Middle East. After all, the threat to Ukraine provides a credible reason for sending military transports from northern Russian ports the long way around through the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea.

The Bible & the Death Penalty: Special Combined Programs with Pastor John Lutz

Pastor John Lutz and I combined our radio programs on Friday, January 28, to spend an hour discussing the death penalty in light of God's Word.

Why? Well, two bills are currently being promoted at the Ohio Statehouse, Senate Bill 103 and House Bill 183, which seek to eliminate the death penalty in Ohio. There is also a move underway by leftist, progressive organizations to infiltrate conservative churches and groups using conservative sounding front groups. The far-left group, Equal Justice USA, for example, is the parent organization for Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. God’s people need to be aware of what is going on.

You can listen to the program here at: Death Penalty Part 1

The second half hour can be heard at: Death Penalty Part 2

New Article: Is the Death Penalty Biblical?

In the linked article I am not so much addressing how the death penalty is implemented or for what crimes it should be used for. Instead, it is an examination of the Biblical basis of the death penalty and whether it applies today or not.

Testimony Before Ohio House Health Committee

The Ohio House Health Committee held hearings on H.B. 324 on Tuesday. H.B. 324, Enact Shirley and Wilma's Law, was introduced by Rep. Gary Click to protect the rights of hospitalized Ohioans to be visited by family and clergy in the midst of a health crisis. Rep. Click introduced H.B. 324 due to his inability as a pastor to visit members of his church in the hospital who were suffering from COVID and seeing them deprived of family visits as well.

I joined with Rep. Click as well as Chris Long, President of the Ohio Christian Alliance, Pastor Dan Wolvin, Ohio Director of Awake America, and several others to give testimony in support of H.B. 324.

A pdf of my testimony is available at: http://live.mapleknoll.us/HB324-Testimony.pdf.

Unexpected Recognition

I was pleasantly surprised to receive two proclamations of commendation from the Ohio State House of Representatives this past week. The first was a congratulations from the Ohio House to the Richfield Bible Baptist Church on the celebration the upcoming (September) celebration of the 40th anniversary of our founding. The second was a recognition by the Ohio House of my 25 years of service as Pastor of the Richfield Bible Baptist Church, coming up in August.

A special thank you to Richfield’s own, Representative Bill Roemer, who sponsored both of these commendations! And thank you to the Ohio State House of Representatives and Speaker Robert R. Cupp for the honors. May God bless you!

2021: A YEAR IN REVIEW

2021 was a year of challenges. It started with a contested election resulting in a questionable new administration that began immediately positioning itself as one of the most anti-Christian, anti-Sematic, pro-death, globalist administrations our nation has ever experienced. The left-leaning media outlets, the new administration, the leftists in congress, and the leftist controlled social media platforms all conspired to fan the flames of COVID phobia, pushing a questionable vaccine and dividing Americans into the clean (vaxed) and the unclean (unvaxed).

Nevertheless, 2021 was also a year of tremendous blessings and opportunities. In the midst of the chaos and confusion, God has shown His faithfulness and watchcare over our church time and time again.

In January, several of our church people succumbed to the Chinese virus, including myself. I spent most of the last week of January in the hospital. Through it all, the church continued to meet in person, with people filling in where needed and me preaching via Google Meet. December saw another resurgence of COVID and, despite a number of people succumbing once more to the Chinese virus, our church continued to meet for all services. Once again, people filled in where needed and Google Meet made it possible for preaching, even song leading, to continue despite COVID quarantines.

Despite COVID challenges, we were able to continue the radio program uninterrupted during the year as well. We had some great guests, including John Lutz (pastor), Chris Long (Ohio Christian Alliance), Michael Goldstein (Proclaiming Justice to the Nations), Ian Juby (creation researcher, media producer), LaVerne Gore (U.S. congressional candidate), Jennifer Gross (Ohio House representative), James Simpson (author, investigative reporter), Gary Click (pastor, Ohio House representative), William J. Federer (author, historian), Mike Tripoldi (Grace Hospice), and Rod Black (evangelist, author).

Throughout the year, God has blessed in many ways. In June we were able to resume weekly services at a local nursing home (though it was shut down due to illness again later in the year). July saw us at the Summit County Fair once more - mask free. I marked 24 years as Pastor of the Richfield Bible Baptist Church in August, as well 15 years on the radio. Then, in September, our church celebrated 39 years of ministry in Richfield, Ohio.

Attendance has been up at our church in 2021 and we have continued to see visitors at our Sunday services and Friday night Bible studies. We have seen people come to Christ, grow spiritually, and get more involved in ministry opportunities. Financially, we have seen one of our best years ever this past year, enabling us to give more to missions as well. Also, our church and radio program websites have averaged more views and our social media sites have generated more responses than ever in 2021.

Still, as we enter 2022, we need to remember, as the Lord told Joshua in Joshua 13:1, "...there remaineth yet very much land to be possessed." Until the Lord calls us home, we still have much to do. We need to resolve to do more in the coming year; to "...consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching" (Hebrews 10:24-25).

So, as we look back on 2021, it is with thanks to God for His watchcare, protection, and blessing. And to you for your prayers and support. May God richly bless you in 2022. May this be the year the Lord comes to catch away His people. Maranatha! Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Black's book, When a Child of God Dies..., addresses both what happens when a Christian breathes their last breath and how we should react when someone we love dies. He also gives a biblical approach to finding comfort, peace, and healing.

Or, to put it another way, why was the virgin birth so necessary?

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule may put an end to many church operated nursing home and assisted living services.

Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), published the CMS Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination Interim Final Rule in the Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 212 / Friday, November 5, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 61555.

This requirement is going to directly affect church nursing home and assisted living services, which are dependent on volunteers. According to the CMS Omnibus Staff Vax Requirements - External FAQ - Clean - Update 1 - 11.18.21, volunteers are now required to be vaccinated:

Q: Which staff are covered under this requirement? A. This vaccination requirement applies to eligible staff working at almost all CMS-certified facilities that participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs, regardless of clinical responsibility or patient contact. The requirement includes all current staff as well as any new staff who provide any care, treatment, or other services for the facility and/or its patients. This includes facility employees, licensed practitioners, students, trainees, and volunteers. Additionally, this also includes individuals who provide care, treatment, or other services for the facility and/or its patients under contract or other arrangements. (p 2)

Q: What are the documentation requirements for staff vaccinations? Are these the same for vendors? A: As noted in the rule, this vaccination requirement generally applies to eligible staff working at a CMS-certified facility that participates in the Medicare and Medicaid programs, regardless of clinical responsibility or patient contact. The requirement includes all current staff as well as any new staff who provide any care, treatment, or other services for the covered facility and/or its 8 patients. This also includes facility employees, licensed practitioners, students, trainees, and volunteers. Additionally, individuals who provide care, treatment, or other services for the facility and/or its patients under contract or other arrangements must be vaccinated. (p 7-8)

[Emphasis added]

Many of the churches operating nursing home and assisted living services will not comply with the vaccine requirements, nor will the volunteers they depend on. There are provisions for religious exemptions, but, in all reality, most care facilities will have neither the time nor the staff to deal with the paperwork such claims for exemptions on the part of volunteers entails. Consequently, my concern is that this HHS rule may put an end to many nursing home and assisted living services across the country.

Pastor John Lutz, of NorthCoast Baptist Church, Lakewood, Ohio, and I discussed this and recent efforts to ban or restrict vaccine mandates at the Ohio Statehouse on his radio program, For the Cause of Christ on Friday, November 19. I also discussed it at length during the second half of our Sunday Night radio program on November 21.

Those promoting Liberation Theology work hand in sickle with others who claim Jesus held communist beliefs and that Christians should embrace communism. They claim passages such as Luke 18:22, where Jesus says to the rich ruler, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me show Jesus teaching communism. And, in Acts 4:32, they say the Bible gives the example of the early Believers practicing communism when it says, And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. So, does the Bible teach communism or not?

Prior to the late 1800's nearly all Baptist historians attested to the antiquity of the Baptists. Since then, however, the claim that Baptists originated around 1610-1611 and did not introduce immersion until 1641 began to gain traction among Baptists and non-Baptists. So, which is correct? Are Baptists of ancient or recent origin and does it matter?

Support Ohio HB 248, the Enact Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act

Hearings for HB 248, the Enact Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act, will be held on Tuesday, August 24, in the Ohio House Health Committee. Pray for the passage of HB 248. And, if you live in Ohio, contact the members of the House Health Committee and urge them to vote YES on HB 248!

I sent the message below to each member of the Ohio House Health Committee using their easy online message form. To do so, go to https://ohiohouse.gov/committees/health and click on the committee member you desire to send a message to. When their page comes up, click on the contact button and then fill out the form (helps to write out you comments before hand and then copy and past as needed).

I am writing to you because you are a member of the Ohio House Health Committee. HB 248, the Enact Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act, is undergoing hearings in the Ohio House Health Committee.

Vaccine mandates are posing a very real and present danger to Ohio's healthcare workers and volunteers. As a pastor I have volunteered for over 30 years in long term care facilities and for 15 years with hospice services. My wife has served as a Registered Nurse for over 30 years, mostly involved in long term care and hospice. People in our church, as well as many other family members and friends, have worked and volunteered in healthcare for many years.

Now, along with many other Ohioans, we are facing the loss of employment and volunteer opportunities due to vaccine mandates. This not only adversely affects those of us who due to medical, religious, or reasons of conscience, cannot or will not take the vaccine, it also adversely affects those who benefit from our employment and volunteerism.

HB 248, the Enact Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act, is vital to protect Ohio's healthcare workers and volunteers by protecting our rights and our privacy, as well as protecting us from discrimination, injustice, and retribution in our employment and volunteer opportunities due to our vaccine status.

Consequently, I am writing to urge you, as a member of the Ohio House Health Committee, to help protect healthcare workers and healthcare in Ohio, as well as all other workers and industries in Ohio, by voting YES on HB 248, the Enact Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act.

You can also listen to our Friday, August 13, program with Representative Jennifer Gross, the author and sponsor of HB 248. It is available at: http://live.mapleknoll.us/13aug21.mp3

After all, out of the trillions and trillions of possible planets out there, surely, we are not the only living things that God created.

There is a move afoot in Ohio to remove the teaching of America's founding documents.

Currently, Ohio law mandates teaching 1/2 credit hour of American History and 1/2 credit hour of American Government with mandatory testing. Included in this instruction schools are required to cover The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, The Northwest Ordinance, The Ohio Constitution, The Federalist Papers, and the Ant-Federalist Papers. Ohio House Bill 73 would remove the mandatory testing. The bill itself does not remove the teaching, but by removing the testing requirement, it will deemphasize the teaching of America's founding documents.

Consequently, teachers pressed for time will lessen the time they spend on these documents in favor of more pressing matters. Leftist teacher's unions understand this. They want to take the time devoted to the great ideas encapsulated in America's founding documents and replace it with the socialist/Marxist indoctrination found in the 1619 Project, Critical Race Theory, and other leftist, "woke" curriculum. Removing the testing mandate, via HB 73, is just a stepping stone to removing the teaching of America's founding documents and replacing them with revisionist, socialist propaganda. Besides, it is hard to teach students that the Revolutionary War was fought to perpetuate slavery in America when they find out that the same people who fought in the War insisted that the Northwest Ordinance, which was written at the same time as the U.S. Constitution, would ban slavery in the Northwest Territories.

Now is the time for Ohioans to stand up against the left and contact your State Representative and tell him or her that you oppose Ohio House Bill 73. On Tuesday, May 18, I joined with a number of other concerned citizens to speak against HB 73 at the Ohio Primary and Secondary Education Committee hearing. During the hearing, a number of representatives remarked that they were getting numerous phone calls about HB 73. Several actually complained about it. So, don't give up, you are being heard!

The Ohio Channel records all public hearings at the Statehouse in Columbus. The attached link provides the video from the May 18 House Primary and Secondary Education Committee. You can find my testimony in opposition to HB73 and the Q&A that followed at 27:34 mark.

Most English Bibles use the word Passover in Acts 12:4 instead of Easter, like the King James Bible does. Did the King James translators make a mistake or did they know what they were doing?

Coming Together In a COVID Crisis

My wife, Kim, and I both came down with COVID on January 15. Fortunately, Kim never got very sick and only needed Tylenol for a few days. I, on the other hand, wound up in the hospital for 5 days with COVID caused pneumonia.

Because of COVID, Sunday, January 17, was the first time that I was not able to actually be present in the studio since starting the program over 14 years ago. I was able to call in but as I got sicker I was no longer able to do even that. Thankfully, Pastor John Lutz, of North Coast Baptist Church, in Lakewood, Ohio, was able to fill in for me while I was under the weather.

Being a small church, with no staff other than myself, it was quite a challenge to keep everything running smoothly there as well while my wife and I were out. However, people in the church rose to the challenge, leading the services and singing, preaching and teaching, ensuring that coffee and refreshments were ready, and running Google Meet so that I could participate in the Friday night Bible study and preach during Sunday services when able.

Finally, after about 3 weeks, I was able to go out in public once more and resume my duties. I never expected to be out so long, but, then again, I never expected to wind up in the hospital either. Consequently, I am very thankful for everyone that helped out, filled in, and, most especially, prayed for me and my wife. And thank God for answered prayers, strength, and healing.

Just posted a new article, Why?, online.

The article grew out of a radio program that I did on February 5th, filling in for Pastor Lutz. In it, I look at the why God may have removed President Trump and allowed Joe Biden to become the 46th President of the United States

The Great Reset, Coronavirus, & Globalism

Gary Kah, of Hope for the World, joined me again to talk about the Great Reset, coronavirus, and globalism.

The takeaway from the program is that the global elite's plans for a one world government are moving faster than we have ever seen before. Central to their plans is the Great Reset, which aims to use the corona scamdemic to eliminate capitalism and bring about a world government and aworld economy based on "benevolant" socialism. Oh, and they want to throw in a world religion just to help tie it all together.

Catching Up...

I've been a bit behind updating and maintaining this website, and others, of late. Consequently, I spent a bit of time yesterday and today updating and maintaining.

In addition to this website, I maintain several others:

In addition, during my copious free time while preparing for Thanksgiving, I penned a parody of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer entitled, Rona the Chinese Virus

Rona the Chinese Virus

You know Measles and Smallpox, Dengue and Haunta,

Rhino and Rota, Rabies and Influenza,

But do you recall?

The most famous virus of all?

Rona the Chinese Virus,

Had a very deadly fame,

And if you ever caught it,

You would even fear its claims.

All of the other COVIDs,

Sickness causing SARS and MERS,

They never matched Corona;

Failed to conjure up its fears

Then one vital ‘lection year,

Fauci came to say,

Rona since your name brings fright,

Won’t you make my shutdown tight?

Then all the leftists loved him

As they shouted out with glee,

Rona the Chinese virus,

You'll go down in history.

Voting for a Party vs. a Candidate

Can't decide who to vote for in the 2020 presidential election? Don't like either of the candidates running? Then consider voting for the party instead.

Here's why. When we elect a president, we do not merely elect a candidate, we elect a party. And, along with the party we elect the party platform. What that means is that when we elect a president we are electing a president that stands upon a particular party platform and promises to appoint cabinet members, office holders, federal judges, and Supreme Court justices who stand upon the same platform.

So, how do you determine which party to vote for? My suggestion is to compare the party platforms with each other and evaluate them in light of your Biblical values. To do so, find the party platforms online, scroll through the contents, and then compare the parts that deal with your concerns as a Christian.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 13:1,

"This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."

Consequently, let's take a look at three issues:

  1. Faith, religious freedom, and religious liberty
  2. Abortion and the sanctity of life
  3. LGBTQ issues and traditional marriage

Both the Democrat and the Republican party platforms address these three issues so you need to read both party's platform statements and decide which best reflects your Biblical beliefs and concerns.

BLM's Disturbing Occultic Connection

In a recent article, “Hail Satan”: After Terrorizing Churches, BLM Witchcraft Exposed, published August 28 in The New American, Alex Newman reveals the connection between Black Lives Matter and witchcraft.

Newman quotes BLM Los Angeles founder and California State University Professor of “African Studies” Melina Abdulla who said, “Maybe I’m sharing too much, but we’ve become very intimate with the spirits that we call on regularly, right...Like, each of them seems to have a different presence and personality, you know. I laugh a lot with Wakisha [a spirit Abdulla communes with], you know. And I didn’t meet her in her body, right, I met her through this work.”

BLM co-founder Patrice Cullors is also quoted. She describes the "say his name” mantra having deep spiritual significance, “When we say the names, right, so we speak their names, we say her name, say their names, we do that all the time that, you kind of invoke that spirit, and then those spirits actually become present with you...”.

Also included is a link to Abraham Hamilton III's episode of Hamilton's Corner where Hamilton plays audio clips of these BLM leaders and discusses the African Ifa religion and its veneration of the dead:

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

I spoke on this subject while filling in for Pastor John Lutz on For the Cause of Christ.

Social Media Pages

I have been mentioning our new social media pages for several weeks now. Both of these sites are friendly to conservatives and Christians. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to post the links until now.

Here is a list of our other social media pages:


Spur of the Moment Program with Pastor Lutz

A couple of weeks ago, Pastor John Lutz, of North Coast Baptist Church, in Lakewood, Ohio, waved me into the studio during his radio program, For the Cause of Christ.

He was talking about some of the hysteria and government overreach during the coronavirus scare when saw me standing in the control room and waved me in. So, I joined him in the studio and we proceeded to discuss the subject.

Realizing that we had a lot more to discuss, I asked Pastor Lutz to stay over so we could continue the discussion on my program as well. Suffice to say, I don't think either of us are going to be invited to the Governor's Christmas party this year...

Fun at the Fair!

Despite corona fears & state shutdowns, the Summit County Fair still took place. It was shortened by a day, ticket sales were limited, and face masks or shields were required, but the show went on.

Thankfully, our church, the Richfield Bible Baptist Church, was able to be at the fair again this year. Although the numbers were down, we were still blessed to be able to talk with several people, share the gospel with some, and pass out numbers of gospel tracts We even met some people who listen to Live with Pastor Al on the radio!

Why are They Rioting?

There are several reasons for the protests springing up around the country. There are those who are protesting actual and perceived injustices. There are those caught up in the moment with no clear idea or understanding of what they are doing. There are those taking advantage of the situation to loot and vandalize,. And then there are those who are using the protests as a means to incite riots in order to further their ulterior goals.

The 10 Points of Action shown above are the goals of those fomenting violence in our country. These are the goals of domestic terrorists. True patriotic Americans will not tolerate terrorists trying to destroy our nation.

These riots are a coordinated attack on the very foundations of our country. The country was already on edge from the coronavirus lock-downs and it only needed a spark to push some people over the edge into violent riots. Now, Antifa is using the tragic and horrific death of George Floyd to stir up mobs and promote anarchy. They are trained, well funded, and coordinating efforts both locally and nationally. They are the foot-soldiers and shock troops of the Left whose goal is the downfall of the United States and the institution of of a global government.

If ever there was a time to pray for our country, now is that time.

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
(Ephesians 6:10-12)

Obstacles to the New World Order

Many people are concerned about the current coronavirus lock down and its possible prophetic implications. Pastor Davis addressed these concerns in a message Sunday morning, May 3, from 2 Thessalonians 2:1-7.

In this message, Pastor Davis discusses the Mystery of Iniquity that is already working in the world and how God is actively hindering it but that foreshadows of the Tribulation period are occurring more and more frequently and intensely. He also addresses how God has used both the election of Donald Trump rather than Hillary Clinton and the coronavirus pandemic to both hinder the globalist plans and alert God's people that His return is near.

The YouTube link below starts at the beginning of the message: https://youtu.be/FF_F6uYT510?t=1440.

Did We Do the Right Thing?

"The professor believes this evidence - actual evidence and data, not the projections of some model - indicate that there is no need for either quarantines or economic closures."*

Did we do the right thing?

Now that the coronavirus pandemic is ebbing and states are planning to reopen for business, it is time to review our actions in order to better plan for future epidemics and pandemics. We shut our country down at huge economic and human costs to prevent what, at the time, seemed like far worse costs.

Whether or not we did the right thing will be studied and debated for years to come. However, to bury our heads in the sand and refuse to consider how the actual data we now have compares to the models we relied on is to refuse to learn. People, even the experts, make mistakes, come to the wrong conclusions, and take the wrong actions all the time. The key to effective crisis management is a willingness to evaluate what is being done and then to make corrections and changes when better information comes along. (I think most people would agree that actual data is more reliable than theoretical models!)

Consequently, calling for our leaders and decision makers to reevaluate their response to the coronavirus pandemic based on actual studies of the progression of the virus is not being unreasonable or ill-informed. It is, instead, based on being informed, realistic, and concerned for the total human and economic costs incurred by the current shutdown. After all, the increased deaths due to fear, unemployment, abuse, having needed health care put on hold, drug and alcohol abuse, etc. caused by the shutdown are just as tragic as those caused by COVID-19. Especially when they begin to exceed those caused by COVID-19.

Pray for our leaders and decision makers. They need it. And pray for all the rest of us. We need it.

"The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is."
--Winston Churchill

A Troubling development

A troubling development is the move to shame, marginalize, and even vilify churches who chose to continue meeting regardless of what the government says.

I don't want to be the pastor whose church meets across the street from the ocean (like our church in American Samoa did) who refuses to cancel services during a hurricane when a 20-30 foot storm surge is coming. Nor do I want to be the pastor who cancels church services without question just because he is told to. There are many times and places, from the first century to the present, where going to church could cost you your life, whether by sword or disease, bullet or microbe, and yet God's people still chose to meet. (Full disclosure: our church is still holding in person services.)

Suspending meetings for a time should be a prayerful decision of the pastor and members of churches, not the heavy handed edict of power hungry government officials. While defending the First Amendment is an important reason for defying government orders, the greater reason, for many pastors and churches, is obedience to God's Word:

"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." (Hebrews 10:23-25)

This is why churches down through the ages have continued to meet despite the governmental threats of fines, imprisonment, and martyrdom. This is why churches have met during dangerous times where disease, civil unrest, and religious strife threatened their very existence.

Yes, there are from time to time stubborn, stiff necked pastors motivated by personal animosity and grandiosity who deliberately and flagrantly rail against anything that has to do with the government. But then again, there are government officials who are motivated by personal animosity and grandiosity who deliberately and flagrantly rail against God's people.

First Amendment or not, many of us agree with Peter and the other apostles who said, "...We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)

Easter or Passover?

Did the King James translators make a mistake or mistranslation in Acts 12:4 when they used the word Easter instead of Passover?

And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
(Acts 12:4)

Scott Jones, in his article Easter or Passover?, makes the case that the King James translators were absolutely correct in using the word Easter in Acts 12:4 rather than Passover. In doing so, he corrects the mistaken idea that it Easter is a pagan word based on Astarte or Ashtoreth, proving that it is reference to the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Significantly, Acts 12:4 in the Authorised Version proclaims the Lord's resurrection with holy boldness - (and holy boldness is a peculiar quality of the Authorised Version, a quality which sets the Authorised Version apart - whoever has ears to hear, let him hear) - yea, and the Authorised Version's translation in Acts 12:4, both in its theology and its etymology, is founded upon a rock of accuracy that cannot be moved, as we will shortly see. Yea, for when the rain descends, and the floods come, and the winds blow, and beat upon it - as they have for near four hundred years now - this translation shall nevertheless stand, it shall never fall, for this translation is verily founded upon a rock, and God himself has borne infallible witness that it is so..."
The other common myth which the critics of the Authorised Version promote is the naked assertion that Easter is somehow derived from a pagan festival related to Astarte, the goddess of fertility. Once again, this is merely a demonstration of the malady that plagues this unlearned age, as there is not a SHRED of evidence that a pagan festival ever preceded or replaced the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, a celebration which goes back to the very Apostles themselves...
In contrast to the bankrupt and literally absurd allegations that swarm around modern Christendom like locusts, here are the facts - the English word Easter is derived from Saxon and Germanic roots. This was ably noted by many scholars in the past. For example, examine C. F. Cruse's absolutely accurate declaration in 1850 AD regarding the etymology of our English word Easter-- Our word Easter is of Saxon origin and of precisely the same import with its German cognate OSTERN. The latter is derived from the old Teutonic form of auferstehen / auferstehung, that is - RESURRECTION...
In summary, the English word Easter means - and has always meant - RESURRECTION - specifically, the RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST...
