* The Governor of Alabama failed morally after 50 years of marriage. * Bill O’Reilly was ousted at FOX because of sexual misconduct allegations. * Many men, even spiritual leaders, have fallen in this area. * Judges 13:24-25 * Judges 14:1 - Samson, who was the leader, was not walking in a manner worthy of being followed. * Samson was in the wrong place hanging around the wrong people because he was led by his own appetite. * He was led by his own eyes. * Judges 16:1 - Samson did it again. * LAP - Lust, Anger, Pride - that’s what brings men down.

School Shooting in Florida (2/15/18)
February 15, 2018 • Benham Brothers
* 17 dead at a public school in Florida. * A disturbed angry 19 year old boy came in and mowed people down. * Now is the time for young Christians NOT to distance themselves from kids like this but to move toward them. * In the aftermath we’ll hear the media talk about two things - God is at fault and Guns are at fault. * God has been kicked out of school and now violence fills the void. * There have been 19 deadly shootings at schools in the last 6 weeks. * 1962 - Engle vs Vitale - prayer removed from school. * 1963 - Abington vs Shemp - Bible reading removed from school. * 1973 - Roe vs Wade - killing kids became legal. * 1980 - Stone vs Graham - 10 Commandments removed from school. * 1992 - Planned Parenthood vs Casey - majority opinion said, “at the heart of liberty is the right for one to define one’s own existence…..” * This young man in Florida lived out this worldview. * Satan comes to steal, kill, destroy. * Christ comes that we may have life. * Hosea 4:1-6 - when we reject God He rejects our kids. Wow. * 2 Chronicles 7:14 - this is the solution.
Reforming Welfare (2/8/18)
February 8, 2018 • David Benham
* A new law is being proposed that would make “able bodied” people WORK in order to get any entitlement. * Those who disagree with this are cloaking it in “compassion” and “love.” * 1 Thessalonians 4 - this shows us what true love looks like. * We are to “work with our hands” so we behave properly toward outsiders. * If anyone who is not “willing” to work he is not to eat. * If you “can’t” work, that’s a different story.
Homeschool Power Grab (2/1/18)
February 1, 2018 • David Benham
* A California family chained up their 13 homeschool kids and treated them like dogs. * These parents need to be locked up. * But this will also lead to a massive homeschooling power grab where the government will come in and take control of the entire homeschooling system. * This is how government grows BIG. * 1 Corinthians 3:18-23 - we have Christian liberty and Christian responsibility.
