Valley of Vision set to music CD!!! YES!!!!

"For years we have wanted to record a CD of songs inspired by the classic book of Puritan prayers, The Valley of Vision. Our hopes are finally being realized. Scheduled for release at WorshipGod06 (see above), Valley of Vision attempts to capture some of the biblical richness, passionate zeal, and gospel focus of these prayers.

Valley of Vision is still in production, and is scheduled to be released in August at our WorshipGod06 conference.

Someone might ask, "Why produce a CD inspired by the prayers of a bunch of dead guys?" That's an easy one. Puritans like John Bunyan, Thomas Watson, Richard Baxter, and Isaac Watts knew their hearts, their Bibles, and their God much better than we do. Many of them wrote down their prayers not to be published, but to assess their own spiritual growth and to encourage themselves in times of spiritual dryness. These prayers reveal a personal, humble, passionate relationship with an awesome God, a living Savior, and an active Spirit. Reading their meditations inspires us to pursue the same level of reality as we worship God.

The songs on Valley of Vision draw from these prayers at various levels and in various ways. Some use a few phrases from a specific prayer, others develop a particular idea, and a few try to capture the original flow of thought, using many of the original words."

Children can have two mothers...whhaaa??!??

I didnt think this was possible but apparently the courts may think otherwise..

Today’s Family News
June 14, 2006

The negative fallout from the decision by Canada’s Parliament a year ago to nationally legalize same-sex marriage has officially hit home.
Last week, as the
Globe and Mail reported, an Ontario judge gave provincial politicians one year to change the Vital Statistics Act to allow a lesbian couple to be registered as “co-mothers” of a baby conceived artificially with sperm from an anonymous donor.

The provision in the Act for registering a live birth was struck down as unacceptably unequal treatment because it requires the names of a baby’s father and mother. This, Superior Court Justice Paul Rivard ruled, caused lesbian couples unjustified “pain and hardship” by suggesting “there is something wrong or unnatural about their families.
“Likewise,” Rivard added, “for
children of lesbian mothers – who are even more vulnerable than their parents to the lack of symbols of their families in popular culture – exclusion of their parents from birth registration furthers this vulnerability.”

The case involved an application by four lesbian mothers who had been denied their request to have their partner’s names officially registered along with them as the children’s parents – or “co-mothers” – on their birth certificates.

Ontario law already allows for a non-biological mother to be declared a parent by adopting her partner’s child. Yet “some found the notion of being required to adopt their own children ‘immoral,’” the Toronto Star reported.

Rivard declared all four women to be the parents of their partner’s children. But he suspended the effect of his ruling for one year to allow the Ontario legislature time to bring the law in line with the equality provisions of the Charter.

Writing in the Woodstock Sentinel-Review, Kristi Setterington applauded the ruling.
“Given last year’s decision regarding same-sex marriage,” she wrote, “it seems only fitting we have taken the next step.”

The Canada Family Action Coalition, on the other hand, denounced the notion a child can have two mothers as “a biological impossibility and a foolish ideology to be promoting.”
“Telling children this false information is destructive and ought to be illegal. Are there not laws that could prosecute a person who intentionally promotes false information? Yet here we have a court doing just that,” CFAC commented on their website.

Rivard’s decision appears to conflict with a decision in April 2003 by Ontario Family Court Justice David Aston. He rejected an application by the biological parents of a boy then two years old to grant his mother’s lesbian partner equal status as a parent.

Had the case proceeded and a judgment rendered in favour of the applicants, it would have marked the first time in Canadian history that a child was declared to have three parents.

An appeal of that decision is now scheduled this September before the Ontario Court of Appeal. According to the Star, one of the lawyers for the four lesbian couples said they may seek to intervene.

Focus on the Family Canada is a member of a coalition that has intervener status in the three-parent case.

Lend me your lyrics!

Recently my bro and I went to a 'worship night' at a nearby church and we sung the following song...what are your thoughts??Does it reflect scripture? What questions does it raise in your brain? Personally I dont like the illusions that are not found in scripture and I think this song has a couple. Perhaps Im mistaken..lemmie know! Here ya go:
Your love is extravagant
Your friendship, mmmm intimate
I feel like moving to the rhythm of Your grace
Your fragrance is intoxicating in our secret place
Your love is extravagant

Spread wide in the arms of Christ
is the love that covers sin
No greater love have I ever known
You considered me a friend
Capture my heart again

Spread wide in the arms of Christ
is the love that covers sin
No greater love have I ever known;
You considered me a friend
Capture my heart again

Your love is extravagant
Your friendship, it is intimate

homosexuality in BC's school curriculum...ugghhh

Today’s Family News
June 2, 2006

British Columbia continues to lead the way in the assault on family values with the provincial government’s decision on Thursday to include more gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered issues in the school curriculum. The government also plans to make it more difficult for parents or students to choose to opt out of classes that address these topics.

The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of the Attorney-General made this decision as part of a settlement to a complaint filed in 1999 with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. In the complaint, Murray and Peter Corren argued that homosexuals were being discriminated against because of a "lack of positive portrayals of gay, lesbian and transgendered people."

A bulletin from the provincial government stated that the settlement includes the development of a “social justice” course for Grade 12 students with content that “will include issues such as race, ethnicity, gender, family structure and sexual orientation.”

However, changes are not limited to this one course. The bulletin also states that the province “will also establish a process and schedule to review the B.C. educational curriculum to ensure that it reflects inclusion and respect for the diverse groups that today make up B.C.’s population.”
According to Thursday’s Vancouver Sun, homosexual activist Peter Corren revealed that “the settlement will also make it more difficult for students and parents to opt out of course lessons that address topics pertaining to sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Last summer, TFN readers were informed that Peter and Murray Corren wanted independent schools to be included in the complaint to the government. However, a spokesperson from the office of the Attorney-General told TFN on Thursday that independent schools are not being included in this decision to introduce more sexual diversity into the curriculum.

It is expected that this decision will increase the already growing percentage of families that are choosing alternatives to public education such as private faith-based schools and home schooling.

Take Action> As more of the details are being worked out regarding how this settlement will affect the education system, now is the time to express your concerns to the B.C. government. Contact Minister of Education Shirley Bond, Attorney-General Wally Oppal or your local MLAs
. Remind them that parents have ultimate responsibility for the education of their children and there should be no restrictions on parents who wish to exempt their children from any teaching on sexual orientation.

Pedophiles to launch political party
Tue May 30, 2006 1:03 PM ET

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch pedophiles are launching a political party to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations to 12 from 16 and the legalization of child pornography and sex with animals, sparking widespread outrage.

The Charity, Freedom and Diversity (NVD) party said on its Web site it would be officially registered Wednesday, proclaiming: "We are going to shake The Hague awake!" The party said it wanted to cut the legal age for sexual relations to 12 and eventually scrap the limit altogether.
"A ban just makes children curious," Ad van den Berg, one of the party's founders, told the Algemeen Dagblad (AD) newspaper.

"We want to make pedophilia the subject of discussion," he said, adding the subject had been a taboo since the 1996 Marc Dutroux child abuse scandal in neighboring Belgium.

"We want to get into parliament so we have a voice. Other politicians only talk about us in a negative sense, as if we were criminals," Van den Berg told Reuters. The Netherlands, which already has liberal policies on soft drugs, prostitution and gay marriage, was shocked by the plan.
An opinion poll published Tuesday showed that 82 percent wanted the government to do something to stop the new party, while 67 percent said promoting pedophilia should be illegal. "They make out as if they want more rights for children. But their position that children should be allowed sexual contact from age 12 is of course just in their own interest," anti-pedophile campaigner Ireen van Engelen told the AD daily.
Right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders said he had asked the government to investigate whether a party with such "sick ideas" could really be established, ANP news agency reported.

Kees van deer Staaij, a member of the Christian SGP party, also demanded action: "Pedophilia and child pornography should be taboo in every constitutional state. Breaking that will just create more victims and more serious ones."

The party wants private possession of child pornography to be allowed although it supports the ban on the trade of such materials. It also supports allowing pornography to be broadcast on daytime television, with only violent pornography limited to the late evening.
Toddlers should be given sex education and youths aged 16 and up should be allowed to appear in pornographic films and prostitute themselves. Sex with animals should be allowed although abuse of animals should remain illegal, the NVD said.

The party also said everybody should be allowed to go naked in public and promotes legalizing all soft and hard drugs and free train travel for all.

Need a Candle..try the new Jesus scent..ahhhh

Candles that "Smell Like Jesus"?


According to WACU television in Philadelphia, a South Dakota couple has recently marketed a line of candles which they claim “smell like Jesus.” Scented candles have long been popular, and have increasingly been offered in more and more unusual scents such as lavender spice, chocolate chip cookie, apple pie, and so forth.

But now, buyers have the option of filling their homes with the fragrance of Christ.“We see it as a ministry,” says Bob Tosterud. Along with his wife Karen, he got the idea for the scented candle after reading Psalm 45:7-8, “Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions; your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.” Karen explains that this is a “Messianic psalm referring to when Christ returns.” But she wondered what the fragrance of myrrh mixed with aloes and cassia might smell like, so she ordered those oils and mixed her first batch with a friend who also made candles.

After the candles went on sale they were an instant hit. Karen suggests, “It’s the only one on the market and everyone tells us it’s very unique.” She also added, “We wanted people to be able to experience Christ in new ways and to be able to read a Bible and have that scent and that candle as a reminder that he is with us all the time.” Her husband Bob commented, “You can’t see him and you can’t touch him [but]...this is a situation where you may be able to sense him by smelling. And it provides a really new dimension to one’s experience with Jesus.” The candles sell for about $18 and can be ordered at Bob and Karen's website, as well as in numerous stores throughout the country.

The Month of May has been quite eventful. The Bank of Canada called to serve us notice that our Million Dollar bill tract featured some design elements they considered to be too similar to those found on some bank notes and asked us to stop printing them or advertising them on our web site. So we complied and made the necessary changes. We sent the new Images to the Bank of Canada and we were delighted to receive a reply in which they said, “This is acceptable… Thank you.”

So I am very pleased to announce that the Million Dollar Bill tract will be back in circulation by the end of June!! The new design features the Toronto Landscape and the snowbird jets with the word Million in the background. The front isn't much different than the original except for some changes to the designs and color.

Feds seize "millions"-in gospel tracts!!

Feds seize 'millions'– in gospel tracts
Secret Service threatens evangelist in Texas with arrest for counterfeiting

Posted: June 2, 20067:45 p.m. Eastern

By Joseph Farah© 2006

WASHINGTON -- Secret Service agents today threatened a Denton, Texas, evangelist with arrest for counterfeiting and seized 8,300 gospel tracts designed as "million-dollar bills."

Three Secret Service agents visited the Great News Network offices about 1 p.m. asking staffer Tim Crawford if he was responsible for printing "the million-dollar bills."

Crawford suggested they talk to his boss, Darrel Rudus, the founder of the organization that trains evangelists from around the country in the techniques of witnessing their faith.

By telephone, Rudus offered his opinion that it was impossible to counterfeit something that wasn't real – a $1 million bill. But the agents explained that a woman in North Carolina had attempted to deposit one of the million-dollar bills in her bank account. The address of the Great News Network was on the back, and the Secret Service went into action.
Rudus also explained that his organization had not designed the tracts. They are the work of the
Living Waters Ministry of Ray Comfort in Southern California, which distributes millions of them a year.
Before he got off the phone, Rudus was convinced the agents were going to drop their demand for the Great News Network's tracts.

But later, he reports, the agents again demanded them from Crawford, threatening him with arrest for "concealing evidence." Rather than face arrest, Crawford turned over the approximately 8,300 million-dollar tracts the group had stored. The agents left a receipt and their business cards.

Ray Comfort told WND he was stunned by the action of the Secret Service and expects agents to visit his offices soon. He said he has no plans to abandon the use of the tracts, which are among the most popular of the many his organization distributes. Living Waters is known for its television program, "The Way of the Master," and an association with actor Kirk Cameron.

"I'm not going to stop printing them," Comfort said. "How can you possibly counterfeit something that is not real – a $1 million bill?"
One side of the tract is designed like an imaginary $1 million bill.

The other side has the gospel message written around the border. It also includes this message: "The million dollar question: Will you go to Heaven? Here's a quick test. Have you ever told a lie, stolen anything, or used God's name in vain? Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you looked with lust? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done those things God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart. The Bible warns that if you are guilty you will end up in Hell. That's not God's will. He sent His Son to suffer and die on the cross for you. Jesus took your punishment upon Himself – 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.' Then He rose from the dead and defeated death. Please, repent (turn from sin) today and trust in Jesus, and God will grant you everlasting life. Then read your Bible daily and obey it."

The tracts are also clearly marked on the front: "This bill is not legal tender."

Rudus says he won't be deterred from distributing the tracts in the future.

"Show me the law we're breaking," he told WND. "How can you counterfeit bills that do not exist?"

Rudus suspects the unknown lady in North Carolina didn't actually try to deposit the tract into her bank account.

"People drop these tracts for others to see and read," he explained. "That's the purpose of it. I have no way of knowing, but if I were going to guess, I would suggest this person just included the tract along with a deposit and someone got offended."

By Grace Rid Yourself of Pride

By Grace Rid Yourself of Pride

1. Ask God to illuminate your heart so you can begin to see the fruits of pride in your life. Ask friends to point out the fruits of pride in your life realizing your heart is exceedingly deceitful.

* You must meet the qualifications if you are to go on in God. Humility is the attitude upon which everything else is built.

2. Ask God to convict you point by point (Psalm 139:23-24) and trust that he will. You don't want or need general condemnation, only specific, godly conviction.

3. Confess your pride to God point by point and ask for his forgiveness. Just as importantly, ask him to cleanse you of all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

4. Don't ask God to humble you -- the Scriptures say to humble yourself (1 Peter 5:6). Humility isn't an emotion; it's a decision of the will to think and act differently. Vine's Expository Dictionary defines humble as "low lying." Ask yourself how you could be low lying or put others before yourself in various situations, and then do it.

* Respond to opportunities God gives you to humble yourself or honor others.

5. Confess your sins of pride to those you have effected and to your friends. They can help to hold you accountable and bring the on-going correction you will need.

* Be open, honest and transparent about your life and sins.

6. Ask God to give you a holy hatred for pride and its fruits in your life. Be continually on the alert. Don't allow pride to grow in your heart. Sow to the Spirit, not to the flesh.

7. Remember your war against pride is life-long. It is not a battle won in a day. Yet, as you faithfully put to death, pride, and put on, humility, you will experience greater freedom and more importantly greater conformity to image and likeness of Christ. In so doing, God will be glorified in your life!
