t wenty welve ways a series of lessons on the ten commandments presented by crossvue school of missions some people attempt to obey god because of fear while others obey to leverage blessing apparently they know nothing of love quite frankly far too many view god s law not as the revelation of his holiness and man s need of salvation but enslavement to some archaic set of tyrannical rules the lost sinner is not saved to sin some more but should indeed be in love to their soul s saviour god s law demonstrates his love for our well-being thou shalt not kill your life is precious to god thou shalt not steal your possessions are important to god laws are designed to give order romans 13:10 says love worketh no ill to his neighbour therefore love is the fulfilling of the law a multitude of similar verses give today s law-hating professing believers extreme difficulty i suppose when they are robbed the thief is given grace because law is outdated law love and living life go hand in hand there is no love in stealing that which is not yours this liberal license liberated crowd has stolen the definition of words the institutions of god and the soul of nations fornication is partnership sodomy is a civil right and love drunkenness is genetic and laziness is welfare and food stamps a thousand times no men may pervert and protest the truth but they will give account to the truth today there are bible killers those revising rewriting and redefining bible with their gender neutral and worse then there are the bible thieves who steal bible teaching to wrest scripture to their perversion whether in fear hatred or denial 4·the voice in the wilderness june 2013 virtual edition

news bits from here and there more government bigger government has america by majority vote consented to more government and bigger government there are a number of republican governors continuing to say no to obamacare costs are mounting to set up insurance exchanges after having dealt with medicare medicaid and veterans benefits over the past 17 years i can say without question that federal government benefits are complicated with endless paperwork and requirements the waste of time and money is apparent the voice in the wilderness out of necessity uses weekly the u.s postal service another big government entity it is almost impossible to get a consensus on the rules and regulations for various mailings annually the usps wastes hundreds if not thousands of dollars for this ministry it would appear they work very hard to be inefficient and wasteful this is just another example of the warnings our founders gave us concerning big government the mountain of pages documenting obamacare regulations has grown from its original 2,700 pages to now over 20,000 pages rising in a stack measuring 7-feet 3-inches high like the russians and french and cubans americans will pay an awful price when free market medicine disappears one report says some $400 million has been spent thus far on obamacare needed information to be gathered qualifying those eligible for subsides some amounting to over $10,000 to $12,000 per year has not been done yet what kind of money and personnel will it yet take to be ready january 2014 for obamacare islamic extremists ehud barak said hezbollah has more than 60,000 rockets and missiles the middle east today is far less stable because the forces leading much of it are islamist we can redefine the arab spring as an `islamic winter as we see radicals leading it to social and national extremes israelnationalnews com arab crime more than 1,000 cattle sheep and goats were stolen from jewish farmers in judea and samaria over a 2-month period alone the arabs are using these thefts to damage the development of jewish agriculture in judea and samaria israelnationalnews.com 6·the voice in the wilderness june 2013 virtual edition

quickfacts on common core education coming to you common core education is a top-down legislation being adopted by states which compels educators to teach a box set or flip-chart standardized list of facts created by the federal government necessary for each grade level to learn promoters tout that this new system of education will raise test scores and increase the number of college graduates many have noted however that the academic bar is not being raised but significantly lowered through these standards end-of-the-year tests/sat/act are being rewritten to follow the common core standards student information will be compiled in a national database and individuals will be pointed toward certain vocations or college programs based on their testing results forty-five states have previously adopted common core yet now many are stepping back to re-examine the legislation due to extravagant implementation costs however those states who choose to not use common core standards relinquish race to the top federal dollars sadly this biggovernment education supported by so-called conservatives like mike huckabee,in essence cuts the throats of private educators including homeschoolers and christian schools when all students will be forced to learn a certain set of facts to pass government mandated testing it also pressures christian curricula writers to revise rewrite or endeavor to explain how their curriculum aligns with common core bju press has a web page dedicated to explaining how they have correlated their curriculum with common core and have compiled charts to show where their material correlates with the new government standards math-u-see saxon math and alpha omega have web pages on the topic as well and have tailored their curriculum to the common core standards the pioneer institute has found that it will cost nearly $16 billion for states to align their systems to the new standards over the next seven years heritage foundation north carolina is rushing to roll out a new educational standard that has not been field tested in any of our 115 school districts it is like the [food and drug administration rolling out a new drug with no testing and no idea of the side effects and then telling the public to trust us dan forest nc lt gov heritage foundation god bless america crusade charlotte nc september 11-13 2013 bojangles coliseum www.godblessamericacrusade.com more on @thevoice_nc or visit www.thevoiceinthewilderness.org ·7
