Over 100 People Killed in Egypt

After following the headlines out of Egypt over the past few weeks, I'm half expecting the next headline to read, "Let the Civil War Begin!"

It is being reported today that over 100 supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, elected President, Morsi....were killed while at demonstrations.

At least 136 supporters of Egypt's ousted president, Mohamed Morsi, have been shot dead by security officials in what is the worst state-led massacre in the country since the fall of Hosni Mubarak, according to figures released by Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood.

The Egyptian health ministry said that it had counted only 20 dead so far – though their figures are only based on bodies delivered to state institutions. Reporters at the scene counted at least 36 corpses in a single room.

The massacre took place in the small hours of Saturday morning, at a sit-in at Rabaa al-Adawiya, east Cairo, where tens of thousands of pro-Morsi supporters have camped since Morsi was deposed on 3 July.

Brotherhood spokesman Gehad El-Haddad said the shooting started shortly before pre-dawn morning prayers on the fringes of a round-the-clock vigil being staged by backers of Morsi, who was toppled by the army more than three weeks ago.

"They are not shooting to wound, they are shooting to kill," Haddad said, adding that the death toll might be much higher.
Al Jazeera's Egypt television station reported that 120 had been killed and some 4,500 injured in the early morning violence near Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawia mosque.

Reporters at the scene said firing could still be heard hours after the troubles started.


"There will be wars and rumors of war...."

The birth pangs continue to get stronger...and the frequency of those pains continues to increase.

Please DO NOT be surprised if you hear the trumpet blow. It may sound an awful lot like the voice of an archangel and the trumpet call of God!

"When you see all these things beginning to happen, then look up, for your redemption is near."  Jesus

"But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that THIS DAY should surprise you like a thief." 1 Thessalonians 5:4

Remember friends...Paul tells us that those folks who are excited about the return of Christ may get a special reward...called the Crown of Righteousness.

Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."  2 Timothy 4:8

Are you LONGING for Christ to return?  Are we sick of the crap coming from all sides on planet earth?  Are we longing for the groom to return for us?

Syrian Opposition Asks USA for Weapons...FAST!

Poor Obama!  He really is in "Checkmate" when it comes to the chess game in Syria.  I'm being serious here now...please remember to pray for him and all of our leaders.  Maybe God will give him wisdom.

So do we support the present dictator, Assad, who is supported by Iran and Hezbollah?  Can't do that...right?---OR---do we support the folks who are trying to overthrow him, even if that means giving guns to Al Qaida or the Muslim Brotherhood?  Of course we just spent $1 trillion over the past decade trying to blow Al Qaida to smithereens in two wars.

Today we have a headline telling us that the Syrians need guns NOW!....or Assad is likely to keep butchering them all and retain power.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The leader of Syria's Western-backed opposition group told U.S. Secretary John Kerry on Thursday that the United States must quickly supply rebels with promised weapons to prevent a military victory by President Bashar Assad's regime.
Ahmad Al-Jarba, in a statement sent out while he was still meeting with Kerry at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, called the situation in Syria "desperate" and said the opposition urgently needs American action "to push the international community to demand a political transition."
The newly elected head of the Syrian National Coalition accused the Assad regime of using indiscriminate weapons ranging from chemical weapons to cluster bombs and said opposition fighters must have weapons to defend themselves and protect civilians.
The Obama administration decided in June to begin arming Syrian rebels groups after the United States said it had conclusive evidence that Assad's regime used chemical weapons against opposition forces. But the U.S. has yet to send any weapons amid concerns they could end up in the hands of al-Qaida-backed groups and other extremists.
Syria's rebels, however, have recently received shipments of more powerful weapons from Gulf allies, particularly anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles.
With every passing day, the destruction of Damascus, as foretold in Isaiah 17, seems to be on the horizon.
But here in America, the stock market is back at record highs, the car dealers are selling cars like never before and consumer spending is ramping back up!  People are heading back to the malls!!  Let the good times roll...again!
"As it was in the days of Noah....", said Jesus.  He said those folks would be carrying on with business as usual, oblivious to the massive ark right in front of their faces for over 100 years...and REFUSE to believe that God was going to do anything awesome.
Do you sense the same thing happening today?  People REFUSE to believe that the trumpet is really going to blow and that Jesus is going to take us into the clouds and that soon after that ALL HELL is going to break loose on earth for those who are left behind.
Lord, please save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. Help us to be workers in the harvest while it is still daylight.  Amen.

Women Must Provide Sex to Men At All Times

Hey women!  If you are having a bad day, maybe consider thanking Jesus that you weren't born in Iran...and that you aren't a member of this dude's mosque!  Remember, in Islam it is a sin to doubt or question anything your Cleric or Imam says.

Iranian Cleric: Women Must Provide Sex to Men at All Times

A leading Iranian cleric discussed the duty of women under Islam at a conference on family issues.

“One of the calamities of our society is that some women do not give authority to their husbands and this is more evident in three groups,” Dehnavi said in explaining the duties of women toward their husbands.

“The first group are those who are older than their husbands and treat their spouses like a mother would, which harms the authority of men. The second group are those who have a higher education than their husbands and because of their financial independence (they) have some attitude, which harms men’s authority.”

In referring to the third group of women, the cleric said, “One of the other duties of women in regard to their men is to take care of their men’s instinctive needs (sexual drive). Do not break their pride and (you must) be more sensitive toward them.”

“Women have to provide sex to their men anywhere and at anytime,” he said in one released video of his speeches. “Even in her mother’s house, the woman usually refuses and says it’s bad and that her mother could find out, but they should do it and so what if her mother finds out? It won’t be bad as they are not doing anything illegal.”


If thinking of another woman during sex results in pregnancy, “then the child will be a homosexual.”

See it all here;

Wow!  Now we know why there are so many gay people!!  Thanks Cleric, for clearing that up!!  Makes perfect sense!!

Honestly, how sad?!  These poor women in Iran and through out the Muslim world.  Where are all the women's rights groups protesting Islam and its treatment of women?  Oh yeah...they are buying the liberal media crap that Islam is a great religion of peace and humanity....and that only a few bad Muslims are giving the vast majority a bad name.


The clerical regime is worried that many woman and men are turning to Christianity and has ordered that converts be arrested and imprisoned.

Yep!  Jesus Christ is moving mightily in Iran and estimates say as many as 4000 Iranians per day are leaving that Satanic system and accepting Christ for salvation!!  Praise The Lord!!

Of course that has Allah worried.....

Alien Website Speaks to Jesus!

The spiritual deception is growing.  Satan must be sensing that his days are drawing to a close.

The paragraphs below are from a website that reports on what the "aliens" are trying to tell us.  If you have already searched this site you will have discovered that it is LOADED with New Age lingo....Ascended Masters, you are God, a new age of enlightenment, etc...

But this one article caught by eye because it talked about how the systems of the world are disintegrating...and it was reportedly written by JESUS!!

Also please note that Jesus signs this letter as "your loving brother, Jesus"....and this would coincide with the rest of the site in claiming that we are ALL GODS...we just don't realize it yet.

So without any further is the latest letter from Jesus;

Humanity’s path through the illusion has been long and arduous, but the end is approaching and the brilliant Light of God’s divine Reality is waking you up into your natural state of full consciousness.
In that state your awareness is unclouded by emotions, tiredness, or fearful beliefs, and you see, know, and understand the wonder of what you are: divine and eternal beings, permanently at one with God.

You have never departed from that state of oneness with Him because there is nowhere else that you could possibly be. However, you have imagined a state other than that, which, like an intense and horrific nightmare, has seemed very real indeed while you have been experiencing it.

You have no need to remain any longer in that unnatural and unreal environment, and in fact you are now in the very dynamic process of removing yourselves from it by allowing and encouraging it to disintegrate around you.

Signs of that disintegration can be seen all over the world, and many are crying out in alarm as the institutions and organizations that supported the illusion can be seen to be in a state of extreme disarray.

It is suggested to you by the mainstream media that catastrophic confusion and chaos is inevitable if these systems of governance and the organizations that support them are allowed to collapse. But truly you have been enslaved by them for far too long, and their demise is overdue.

They have been misleading you with promises of safety and security, which they claim only they can provide, when instead they have been spending enormously on weaponry and on building and maintaining strong military structures and intelligence agencies to enable them to keep their populations in a state of subjugation.

People living in fear are far more easily controlled, so fear is encouraged, and most of the advertising to which you are exposed is also fear based.

The insanity of this system is becoming evermore apparent as its inability to solve the issues and problems that it has created is exposed.

Always more money is needed just to maintain the ongoing unbalanced and corrupt systems of governance which have for eons been causing intense suffering all across the world. These systems of control and divisiveness which the wealthy and powerful have built purely for their own benefit are tottering, because those they would control are no longer willing to accept the yoke that has been imposed upon them.

Without the willingness of those who serve them, those who would be served cannot maintain their arrogated positions of privilege and authority, and their continuing efforts to do so are doomed to failure.

The illusion has been maintained by the collective intent of humanity, and for eons you all supported that intent. Now, as the divine energies surrounding and enveloping you intensify, your awareness of its unsuitability as an environment in which God’s children should enclose themselves is spreading and your collective intent to support it is dwindling.

You are becoming increasingly aware that your destiny, your heritage, and your rightful place is in the presence of your loving Father, where you can and will experience constant joy.
Continue to focus your determined intent on awakening into that state, and ask for assistance from those in the spiritual realms to help you to achieve your aims - your success in this is the only possible outcome.

Your Father has been encouraging you to wake up since you first chose to enter the dream state - which is the illusion - and for a long time you made yourselves deaf to His call. That deafness is dissipating as your dissatisfaction with your present way of experiencing life grows stronger. You were created to experience everlasting joy, and the realization that that is God’s Will for you is finally penetrating the dark and limited state of consciousness in which you have confined yourselves.

It could be thought of as an enclosed and darkened room, complete with heavy blackout curtains, into which no light is able find its way. However, those curtains are now very old, and over the eons the brilliant light shining upon them has caused them to fray and disintegrate, allowing the light to penetrate that darkened room.

The effect of this is quite miraculous! The occupants of the room - humanity - are absolutely amazed to see beams of light shining on various objects and bringing into view the myriad beautiful colors with which they are imbued and that until now have been invisible.

The dark that has enveloped you and that has hidden from you the wonder and beauty of Reality is receding and breaking up as the divine Light of God’s brilliant day burns it off, like morning mist in the sunshine. Humanity has made the collective decision to wake up from the darkness of the illusion into the brilliance of Reality, and nothing can prevent it doing so.

Your loving brother, Jesus.

Russia's Putin Heading to Iran (Persia)

Remember, lots of prophecy watchers believe that Russia is the land of Magog mentioned in Ezekiel 38 and 39.  Of course we don't KNOW that for sure, but it is worth watching.

However, Ezekiel 38-39 go on to talk about Persia joining Magog and other North African nations to plan an annihilation of Israel...and we can be 100% certain that Persia IS Iran.

So it is MOST INTERESTING to read about the leader of Russia going to make friends with the new leader of Iran.

(Washington, D.C.) — On August 3rd, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will officially step down as the President of Iran. He will be replaced by Hassan Rouhani, though the Islamic Republic will still ultimately be ruled by the so-called “Supreme Leader,” the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

A few days later, the leader of Russia will arrive in Tehran on a formal state visit. He will come to discuss the Iranian nuclear program and to strengthen the Russian-Iranian alliance. It will likely be the first state visit of the new Rouhani regime and it will be interesting to see what comes of it.

“Russian leader Vladimir Putin will meet Iran’s newly elected president in Tehran next month to discuss restarting talks on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program,” reports Reuters, based on Russian and Iranian media reports. “The Russian newspaper Kommersant quoted a source close to the Iranian Foreign Ministry as saying President Putin would visit on August 12, days after Hassan Rouhani is inaugurated. Iran’s Mehr news agency said Putin would travel to Iran on August 16, without citing a source. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined comment on the reports.”

This will be the second time Putin has traveled to Iran. The first was a two day trip on October 16-17, 2007.


Make no mistake....Putin IS setting himself up to be a Czar.  He is punishing newspapers that don't toe his line and even having rivals put in jail who have the nerve to publicly disagree with him.

He wants to rebuild Mother Russia...and maybe one day soon he will get hooks put in his mouth by God Almighty himself.

I (God) will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush[c] and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.

Judgment or Revival Coming to America?

I know...I know!  Lots of you get Greg Laurie's daily devotional!  But today's was so good AGAIN that I just had to share it with y'all...

One More Revival

 "Sodom's sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door. She was proud and committed detestable sins, so I wiped her out, as you have seen."

Billy Graham recalls a time when his wife Ruth, commenting on the downward spiral of morality in our nation, exclaimed, "If God doesn't punish America, He'll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah."

Sodom was once a great power in her day—a city-state, a dominant force. But God judged her. He identifies her sins in Jeremiah 23:14: "But now I see that the prophets of Jerusalem are even worse! They commit adultery and love dishonesty. They encourage those who are doing evil so that no one turns away from their sins. These prophets are as wicked as the people of Sodom and Gomorrah once were."

They commit adultery and love dishonesty. They encourage those who are doing evil. . . . We live in a time in our nation when right is wrong and wrong is right. Everything is upside down.

God gives another assessment of the sins of Sodom in the book of Ezekiel: "Sodom's sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door" (16:49).

Pride . . . gluttony . . . laziness. . . . Think of our nation and the sense of entitlement. Everyone expects to be entertained. I am reminded of the famous statement by the Roman satirist Juvenal as he spoke of Rome and her decline: "The people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions, and all else, now concerns itself no more, and longs eagerly for just two things—bread and circuses!"

It seems to me that is what America is like today: "Entertain us. It's all about us."

I believe that our nation has two choices before us: One is judgment. The other is revival. Judgment is coming, that is clear. But my prayer is there will be at least one more revival before this happens.

Dozens Dead in Big China Quake

This is recent breaking news...first reports are 89 dead and over 600 injured.

More than a dozen towns were affected by the 6.6-magnitude quake which demolished buildings, cut off communication lines and triggered landslides and mudslides across the region.

The first of the aftershocks of around 5 magnitude was felt by 9 in the morning. That was the beginning; at least 420 more felt by early evening.

The quake triggered the collapse of more than 1,200 houses and severely damaged another 21,000 homes, authorities said.


The earth is shaking!  Many say like NEVER before.

Have we built our faith on the Rock....or is it built in sinking sand?

"On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand."  Gotta love that old hymn!!

The Apocalypse and the Nephilim

The Bible clearly tells us that life on planet earth will be a NIGHTMARE when Jesus arrives. 

Thankfully, for those humans who have put their faith in Christ and are indwelt by His Holy Spirit...we will be caught up to meet Jesus in the sky at least 7 years before His 2nd advent.  And there we will be with The Lord FOREVER!!

Praise the Lord!!

Now, let's go back and visit the nightmare that is coming...and also notice the SIGNS that point to this coming nightmare.

What if Russia, China, or some terrorist group, either external or domestic was going to detonate multiple nukes in major cities around the world tomorrow morning at sunrise? This nuclear attack would provoke a series of cataclysmic chain-reactions from the U.S. and other major super-powers. ICBMs would be launched; spaced based weapons capable of firing nukes would be activated. The political, financial, and other elites would be instantly transported to massive underground cities around the world and martial law would be declared.
The massive bases (like whatever facility lies beneath the Denver International Airport) will safely protect the elite while the masses are left to die thorough radiation, disease outbreaks, riots, food shortages, freak weather and all-out global thermonuclear war above ground. If you want a pictorial illustration of what this apocalyptic event may look like, simply look at the ghoulish art work hanging in plain view on the walls of the Denver airport.
As I detail in my new book, A Prophecy of the Future of America, all over the world a powerful secret elite will be transported to massive fortified cities to survive the apocalypse… if they can survive.
Unfortunately, the Bible has become more censored from our society than pornography and nowhere is that more true than in the average Evangelical Church. Although God’s Word is inspired and inerrant from Genesis to Revelation every attempt is made to twist, pervert, change its meaning, and censor it from the average Christian in the average church all over the world. Jesus Christ Himself spoke of the absolute necessity of “abiding in the vine,” or living in the Word of God. We should not be surprised that individual Christians become powerless and the church as a whole becomes impotent and powerless when it is in anyway cut off from or ceases abiding in the Word!
The Word of God is not mere literary prose like Shakespeare or mathematical code like in a computer program. The Word of God is God! Jesus Christ is the Word become flesh. That is a multi-dimensional and supernatural reality. For example, our bodies’ and minds’ ability to regenerate themselves is based on the genetic code in the DNA cells which can be activated. Warfare on any dimension, either in space and time or out of space and time reveals the reality of conflict between opposing forces. God is love! Lucifer is pure lust, not just in the sexual sense, but in every sense, culminating in his desire to be illegally worshipped as God. There are two kinds of people in the world today: those who choose to serve the true God who is love and those who choose to serve Lucifer, or the Luciferians.
While I was researching my new book massive archeological ruins along with pyramids were found on the ocean floor off the coast of Cuba, in the general region of the Bermuda Triangle. Since before the Pre-Flood era, scientists have hypothesized that Atlantis was a highly advanced technological and scientific civilization. If that were the case, then the common mythology of civilizations of god men, in places like Thule, Hyperborea, Atlantis, and South America all seem to indicate a race of supermen which the ancient Hebrew scholars refer to as the B’nai Elohim or fallen angels. Jesus Christ emphasized that “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man.”
The idea was that the Nephilim were the super-race that came from the interspecies breeding of human women and fallen angels. Jesus Christ is specifically telling us that they would increase again, just before His return from Heaven with the armies of Heaven. Adam and Eve were created in the image of God and with the DNA of God. When the fallen angels mated with human women, they corrupted that pure DNA. Transhumanism is an attempt by Man to fulfill the serpent’s temptation, “You shall be as gods.” The New World Order is a counterfeit of the Kingdom of Heaven.
One thing for sure....Satan is prowling around like a hungry lion looking for whom he may devour.
How many folks on earth will be TOTALLY BLOWN away by what is coming?
How many folks on earth were TOTALLY SWEPT away by Noah's flood?
"As it was in the days of Noah....". said Jesus.

Our Inner Cities Will Be War Zones

Every day the pundits are trying to figure out what this Zimmerman/Trayvon case is really all about?

Why are black teenagers murdered by other black teenagers every single day in Chicago and the black community refused to order protests in 100 cities?

Why DO they organize protests in 100 cities when a white/Hispanic man kill a black man in self defense?

What the heck is up with that?

It most likely boils down to a more prophetic reason.  Jesus said, "Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom..." as the Last Days draw nearer.  Nation against nation could also be interpreted to mean "race against race."

No doubt the tension in the black community in America is near a boiling point.  The majority of blacks vote for Democrats.  Why?  Because the Democrats are the more likely party to offer them bigger handouts.

So the Democrats are in the business of giving out more money in the HOPES that they will create more Democratic voters!!  Wow!  What a vicious cycle that is!!  It that pattern continues much longer Detroit could be bankrupt, followed by Oakland, followed by Chicago, followed by Philadelphia...and maybe followed by the U.S. Federal Government!!

Rapture Ready had a great article today on the Trayvon case, so I will paste some of that below;

The reason why the incident became a major news story is because it fits the desired narrative of a white man shooting a black man. When it became known that the white guy was actually─Hispanic, the New York Times made the bizarre move of labeling Zimmerman as a “White-Hispanic” and the media circus marched on like nothing had changed. The liberal-left doesn’t care about justice. They wanted a sacrificial victim to be offered on the altar of racial grievance.

The next step into the crazy dimension was made when Trayvon Martin was transformed from street thug to angel-faced choirboy. You may remember President Barack Obama saying, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

Despite the fact that Trayvon had been kicked out of school for vandalism, had a history of fights, liked to smoke pot, and was caught with burglary tools (and jewelry that appeared stolen); the image the media focused on was a picture taken when he was 12-years-old. You would have to do a Google search to find a picture of Trayvon as a six-foot tall, muscular, 200 pound, 17-year-old.

Investigators in the case found no indication of racism on the part of Zimmerman. In fact, there was a mountain of evidence pointing in the oppose direction, which was never mentioned by the mainstream media. Zimmerman had dated a black girl at one time and took her to his High School prom. He once had a business partner that was black. Zimmerman mentored minority school kids in his community. He also led an inquiry into the death of a black homeless man that resulted in the resignation of Sanford’s police chief.

I see a time of profound racial unrest coming to America. Since the welfare state, is funded by our heavily indebted federal government, the coming financial collapse will turn our inner cities into war zones. With nearly half of Americans dependant on the government for some form of support, there will be plenty of pain to go around. With any crisis, there will be ample scapegoats over who is to blame.


Crime has exploded in Detroit.  It has exploded in Oakland and Chicago.

What do these cities have in common?  A VERY HIGH percentage of blacks.

Why is it exploding?

Because the black family has disintegrated.  Fathers are absent and a high percentage of black teens turn to crime because they have been fed a crock of crap that they are perpetual victims...and they DESERVE reparations for all the injustices that that were committed on SOME of their great, great grandparents during the slavery days.

The human condition is a mess.  Only Jesus can save us from the nightmare that WILL BEFALL mankind on earth.

"Therefore, encourage each other with these Words."

Only the UNSEEN Things Are Real

Everything you and I see is really only a temporary mirage, of sorts.

We are just dust and are only here for a mist of time.

But the unseen things, where angels dwell, are the real things.  This is where reality actually exists.

Did you know that many scientists are coming to the conclusion that we are actually living in an electronic video game?  The funny thing is....the Bible backs up their theory!!

Greg Laurie had some great comments about focusing on eternity.

An Eternal Perspective

  So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

When you are younger, you think certain things are always good, while other things are always bad. For example, success is always good, and hardship is always bad. But when you have lived life for a while, you can look back and realize that success actually can be bad for some. And hardship actually can be good for others. You begin to see things differently. And sometimes the things you thought were really good things turned out to be bad things. And the things that you thought were bad things turned out to be good things.

We must realize as Christians that God is in control of all circumstances surrounding our lives. God takes all of the events of life, the good things and the so-called bad things, and works them "together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them" (Romans 8:28).

We must also realize that God loves us and is always looking out for our eternal benefit—even if what we are presently going through is difficult. We are told in 2 Corinthians 4:17–18, "For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever" (

Are you thankful for what God has blessed you with? Have you given thanks recently for your health? For the freedom to worship openly? For the clothes on your back and the roof over your head? We need to give thanks to God—because there is so much to give thanks for.

Fuller Seminary Discusses LGBT Group on Campus

Question.....How can you be a theological seminary and not even apply the basis contexts of sexuality as clearly defined in the Bible?

The President clearly says, "No premarital, extramarital or homosexual sex"....the Bible is clear.

But then he goes on to say why a LGBT group, populated by future pastors being trained at the a good idea.

Mark Labberton, president of Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif., announced this week that the evangelical seminary's willingness to allow OneTable, an LGBTQ student-led organization, to hold monthly meetings and sponsor campus events does not conflict with the institution's policies and Christian moral beliefs and teachings.

In a statement shared with The Christian Post, Labberton said the administration welcomes "the opportunity to engage over vigorous issues of debate within the church and within culture," and understands that their decision to allow an LGBT student organization on campus leaves the seminary "vulnerable to critique from a broad spectrum."

OneTable, the LGBTQ student organization that was founded in 2012 by Chelsea McInturff and Samantha Curley, hosts monthly table fellowship meals and sponsors campus events, including film screenings, speakers and panels, and provides "safe spaces for students and faculty to engage in healthy and constructive conversations together," according to the OneTable website.

Having received thoughtful questions about the seminary's moral stance on issues pertaining to sexuality, specifically same-sex marriage and the purpose behind the LGBT student organization, Labberton said the seminary will continue to uphold its belief that premarital, extramarital and homosexual conduct are inconsistent with biblical teachings.

"Fuller's position on same-sex marriage and behavior, reflective of our evangelical tradition's reliance on the scriptures, affirms that every student, faculty member, administrator, and staff person at Fuller is expected to abide by the Community Standards that 'premarital, extramarital, and homosexual forms of explicit sexual conduct [are] inconsistent with the teaching of Scripture.' This position is clear," Labberton emphasized.

He added that OneTable is one among 24 student-led groups at Fuller, and provides a "safe place to discuss issues related to sexuality and gender – issues that are vitally important, personal, and fraught with debate that is frequently divisive and contentious, not least in an evangelical context."


Of course this makes perfect sense from a spiritual battle point of view.  If you were Satan, wouldn't you focus serious attention of the very places that are making future shepherds of the flock?

Jesus clearly told us that there will be wolves in sheep's clothing that will go out to destroy the flock.

So certainly a Pastor dressed in robes and preaching behind the pulpit would be the sheep's clothing part.
