I am a Christian. I make no apologies or excuses for being so. I believe that the Bible is as relevant, applicable, true and holy today as in the days it was written. It is not out-of-date or superseded by other books or beliefs.

Lying, cheating and stealing were sins then, and they are sins today. Adultery, abortion and homosexuality were sins then, and they are sins today. If you call yourself a Christian and live in sin, endorse sin or condone sin, you are fooling yourself. You are not fooling God.

I believe that God has a simple plan for mankind. Jesus was sent to show us the truth (John 18:37). The truth is that there is only one way to God and that is through Jesus (John 14:6).

America has legislated our Christian God and Jesus out of schools, public view and their lives. The majority of Americans have disowned Jesus by their laws and actions, and Jesus will disown them before God (Matthew 10:33).

Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12). In Revelations 2, Jesus says that if the people of Ephesus do not change their ways, He will remove the lampstand from its place.

We are like the people of Ephesus today. If we do not change our ways, He will remove the lampstand. There will be no light, and we will be in darkness.

I pray this has not already happened.
