    I have people in my own family tell me I am over the top and a Jesus freak....I don't want to imagine how others will see me ...those that actually hate what Christians stand for
    The Word says the world will hate us: Matt 10:22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
    I have received phone calls from a brother at midnite, that I was talking Jesus too much to mom & dad, both were RCC but said Jesus was not God , little brother jumped all over me while talking to him about salvation, said stop because one of his friends got saved and drove him nuts with Jesus. Mom & Dad are gone now, I talk very little to bro & sis but they know where I stand and who I stand with, no need to push the issue, but one day they may be open or have a ? I pray for them daily and all my relatives and friends. Also pray daily we are caught up in the twinkling, then the rapture letter on my fireplace mantel will be in play.
    John 10:27-30 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Fatherís hand. I and the Father are one.

    I have been advocating, for a few years now, that Christians need to be moving out of places like Chicago, Seattle, Baltimore, and Southern California, much like Lot should have picked up and left Sodom much sooner than he did, and Jeremiah warns God's people (in Chapter 51, I think) to leave Babylon.
    I have had the same sentiments with regards to Colorado but for different reason. When they legalized pot I just could not justify going there. My nephew went to University in Colorado for one year and then left. He hated it because the pot was everywhere and it stank everywhere. So, he left and went back to Chicago. I cannot believe all the Texans who go to Colorado to ski in the winter---alot of them are Christians that I know---I always say vote with your feet...

    Many Universities have joined in with the cesspool of liberalism that comes from multiple generations of post modern thinking. And in fact, it has gotten so bad that there are only a handful of Christian Universities and maybe two public universities that do not have leadership that is post modern when it comes to liberal values, and totally intolerant of conservative or Christian values.

    At this point, I would not ever let any of my children or grandchildren go to any American Public University.

    I made a list, a few years ago, of places I consider "Constitution Free Zones"

    John Adams said "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.
    It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."


    The only moral foundation for the US is the Bible, and the US began going into apostasy around the 1890's. Today, there are places in the U.S. where the people and the government have both become so depraved that the Constitution is "wholly inadequate" for governance. These are places where both the people of the cities and their governments are so corrupt that a symbiotic relationship of corrupt tyranny and moral depravity is the best that can be hoped for until the return of our Christ.

    Colleges and Universities are the breeding grounds for liberalism. I have a couple of nieces that used to be pretty conservative and when they graduated college they were flaming liberals. My niece, Jennifer, went to NYU to the tune of $ 250k and she completely rejects Jesus and thinks that as long as you are a "good" person you will go to heaven. Sigh.

    What is frightening to me is how easily some of these young people are just converting g to the lies of the world.

    Two things are in play. Youth and inexperience.

    A younger person is more malleable, and many of these young people
    do not have a solid foundation in the Scriptures, to begin with.
    (Not slamming their parents - it is extremely difficult to get a young
    person today deeply indoctrinated in the Scriptures)
