M.A.D. 2014

This year we pledge to become even more radical for Christ. In a world where Christians are persecuted, mocked and scorned for standing on God's word, unity among the body of Christ is needed like never before. It's difficult to digest the mindset behind those who have chosen to take God out of schools and then blame him for the tragedies that follow.

It's time to stop making excuses for the sins of this world. The majority of these people know exactly what they are doing. They take pride in their blasphemous acts against God. While we must continuously pray for their salvation, we SHOULD not take this laying down. We are commanded to teach the word of God and the repercussions behind living a life of sin. The world has successful played a cynical guilt game on the minds of the saints. Accusing us of judging whenever they felt convicted.

We have proclaimed 2014 to be the year of Restoration. Every family, home, church and business will reclaim what the enemy has stolen from them. This is something we must all do together! No more cliques, no more Sunday Segregation, no more "anything you can do I can do better" agendas. After all if one can chase a thousand then two can....well you know the rest...
I am including a video recently posted by Atheist and Comedian Doug Stanhope. I must warn you, the language is vile and his message offensively clear. Every child of God must see this...And if it makes you M.A.D, we encourage you to join us on February 22, 2014. Let's become Motivated to Attack the Devil together and quench the fiery darts of satan as a united front. We hope to see you there!!!
In Christ,
Pastor Travis & Bridgett Mack

Born This Way???

Born This Way

On May 23, 2011, Lady Gaga released her second album Born this Way. This album was a tribute to and affirmation for anyone living a homosexual lifestyle. The slogan "Born the Way" has become the reasoning behind same sex relationship. Their logic says since God made you this way, you should love who you are no matter what.  
So the question is, are they born that way. The answer is Yes....but WAIT...WAIT...WAIT...continue reading please.
Adam and Eve introduced sin into the world the moment they both disobeyed God by eating from the Tree of Knowledge. Every person born since then entered the world with the generational curse of sin on their shoulders. David would come later to say in Psalms 15:5, Behold I was shapen in iniquity and in sin did my mother conceive me. So yes, we are ALL born One way or Another.
Your struggle might not be homosexuality, it might be with lying, disobedience, lusts of the flesh or anger. The beautiful thing about all of this is even though we are BORN that way, we don't have to STAY that way. Jesus paved the way for our redemption, salvation and living a life free from sin when he died on the cross.
We were given the wisdom and power to overcome any struggle or stronghold through the Holy Ghost. (I Corinthians 2:11-16)
Lady Gaga's song was another one of satan's lame attempts to give the world an excuse to reside in HIS demonic actions. God fearfully and wonderfully made you based on the potential he implanted in you from conception. satan's job is to tarnish that potential by contaminating your mind, body and spirit with ungodly ideals and logic. The wisdom of knowing the difference between the two comes once you give your life over to Christ (Romans 10:9), accept his Holy Spirit and actively pursue a relationship  with him and him ONLY.
You might be born that way but you CERTAINLY do not have to stay that way!
