“We are to give to the poor out of pity [Prov. 19:17]. Not to be seen and applauded, much less to get influence over them; but out of pure sympathy and compassion we must give them help.” Charles H. Spurgeon
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was born in Essex, England. He became a Christian in 1850 and year later was the pastor of a small Baptist church…During his ministry he built up a congregation which numbered about 6,000. Spurgeon was involved in several charitable organizations including an orphanage at Stockwell. Spurgeon also had an extensive influence through literature, in particular his sermons which appeared in pamphlet form weekly.
“I had fame and success and a great husband but I always knew something was missing in my life. I used to think there had to be more to it. I knew He [God] was there but I didn’t know how to make the connection. I didn’t understand how God could be real in my life. But then I accepted Jesus Christ, and believed that He came to Earth as the son of God, to die for our sins. Even then I didn’t understand the power of the Bible, his word. If I knew then what I knew now I could have won six Wimbledon’s, not three. The New Testament is the greatest book on psychology. It shows you how to live victoriously. It’s our TV guide to life. It has everything in there for every facet—even how to run a nation.” Margaret Court, former world #1 tennis player, Australian Herald Sun, January 25, 2012
Mrs. Court is now being vilified by the homosexual mafia as a hatemonger for insisting that marriage is between a man and a woman—period! “Children need a mother and a father—stability from a male and a female—and I think we are losing sight of this.”
“When our sweet little neighbor in her brown camp uniform came knocking on our door this year, we had to say no. I told her mother that I didn’t want to hurt Katie’s feelings, but I couldn’t support the Girl Scout cookie sale anymore because I’d learned too much about the organizers’ agenda, primarily their support for abortion and partnership with Planned Parenthood. I worried that my ‘political’ stand would cause uneasiness between us, but her response put me at ease: ‘Well,’ she said, ‘they do use unpaid child labor to make their sales, and the troop only gets 10 percent of the revenues anyway.’ … Several years ago, a quarter of the Girl Scout councils nationwide admitted to partnering with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s abortion giant. The Girl Scouts have been ‘pro-choice’ for years but now they’ve been caught supporting promiscuous sex for girls. The Planned Parenthood sex guide offered at that ‘girls only’ U.N. meeting offered this advice on Page 11: ‘Some people have sex when they have been drinking alcohol or using drugs. This is your choice. If you want to have sex and think you might get drunk or high, plan ahead by bringing condoms and lube or putting them close to where you usually have sex.’” Cathy C. Ruse, The Washington Times, January 23, 2012, p. 29
“And Islam is not even the dominant religion taught in public schools; ‘secular humanism’—which posits that humans are the central beings of the universe and that science, logic, and reason should be the basis for morality and decision making—takes those honors in kids’ school-day devotions. Yes, secular humanism is a religion! What is religion? It is any system of beliefs, practices, and ethical values underlying a code of behavior and a philosophy. (No, religion is not the ‘worship’ of a supreme God; otherwise, Shintoism and Buddhism would not qualify as religions.) As part of ‘humanist’ religious education, public schools teach that no family situation is inherently better than another and that morals are relative and should be reevaluated for each situation—essentially saying there is no absolute right or wrong (teaching ethics, of a sort). Schools eradicated God from any part in creation, inculcating kids with the idea that evolution is how all species came about (teaching a belief system), and schools preach a creed of ‘social justice’ that espouses a reverence for Mother Earth, fairness through government redistribution, and a victim-group mentality (teaching and instituting personal practice). In fact, U.S. courts have ruled that secular humanism is indeed a religion; they just somehow couldn’t find it in the schools.” Kurt Williamsen, The New American, January 9, 2012, p. 44

Also, consider the bio of American Humanist Association’s Rev. Dr. Michael Newdow—“Newdow is an emergency room physician and attorney, who graduated from Brown University, UCLA School of Medicine, and the University of Michigan Law School. He is also the minister of the First Atheist Church of True Science (FACTS), and is working to grow that Atheistic religious organization.” Irony of ironies is the fact that the American Humanist Association was founded as “a church” and continues to possess a 501©3 religious tax exemption from the IRS.
Yet it is the only religion legally allowed in America’s public schools when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the teaching of creation illegal.
“Climate change subscribers say the fight against global warming will require younger soldiers. On January 16, the National Center for Science Education, a non-profit group that denounces intelligent design and supports an evolution-only curriculum in the classroom, expanded its mission. The organization of scientists, anthropologists and others is turning its attention to climate change, and it will mount an aggressive effort to teach the nation’s schoolchildren that climate change is real and is being driven by human activity. The University of California at Berkeley operates the website globalwarmingkids.net, a sub-section of its climatechangeeducation.org initiative. On the website, instructors can order ‘Global Warming for Young Minds,’ a handbook aimed at 6 to 10 year olds. It also offers ‘Let’s Stop Climate Change’ DVDs, in which a hippopotamus named Simon encourages children to take action against global warming.” Ben Wolfgang, The Washington Times, January 23, 2012, p. 18
