Be Reconciled to God, and Become a ‘New Creation’ in Christ

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin [or, a sin offering] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (the Apostle Paul’s 2nd Letter to the Corinthians; 2 Corinthians 5:13-21)

Truth Tour 2009: AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera Coming to Maine

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

mike_heath_ccl_capital_resized_5.jpgMy good friend and Christian “culture war” hero Mike Heath (right) — AFTAH Board Chairman, executive director of the Maine Family Policy Council, and long-suffering whipping boy of fundamentally intolerant social leftists throughout his state — is way too kind in writing the following entry on his blog today. … — Peter LaBarbera:

…In the early 1990s Bob Knight talked sense to me. His polite confrontation over the phone inspired me to sink my teeth into the culture war. He was working for the Family Research Council (FRC). Peter LaBarbera was his assistant. Bob had a small team of guys that were beginning to provide effective coordination and motivation to grassroots pro family activists.

After Gary Bauer left to run for President Bob’s department was disbanded. That was a very sad day for me. I still regret that decision by FRC. Bob and Pete have stayed in the fight. They are America’s two most valuable national pro-family assets. If the pro family movement brought those two guys together again and funded them things would change fairly rapidly in the good ole USA.

I’m going to bring my very good friend Peter LaBarbera to Maine later this month, on May 28 and 29. He now heads up the most effective online advocacy website for common sense in the “gay” fight, www.americansfortruth.com. Make sure you check it out, and tell all your friends.

The title of Pete’s talk is “The Zero-Sum Game: How Gay Rights and ‘Same-Sex Marriage’ Undermine Religious Freedom.” I’m hosting a working lunch in Portland, supper in Houlton on Thursday, May 27th and breakfast in Bangor on Friday, the 28th of May.

Iowa Rep. Steve King Discusses Democrats’ Hate Crimes Bill

Friday, May 1st, 2009

Sought to exempt pedophiles from inclusion under “Sexual Orientation”

What a travesty that House Democratic leaders did not even allow a full-fledged floor debate on H.R. 1913. the “Thought Crimes” bill, which could become the first law to federalize both “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.” Below Congressman Steve King discusses the “Hate Crimes” legislation during the limited House floor debate on April 29, 2009:

Mike Heath Announces Peoples Veto Campaign to Overturn ‘Gay Marriage’ Vote in Maine

Friday, May 1st, 2009

mike_heath.jpgDear Readers,

Mike Heath, head of the Christian Civic League of Maine (now renamed the Maine Family Policy Council), has led two successful statewide drives to turn back “sexual orientation” (homosexuality) laws in Maine, in 1998 and 2001. Now Heath (Board Chairman of AFTAH) will lead the effort to preserve the real definition of marriage in his state. We predict that he will win. Thanks to the efforts of Heath, Paul Volle, Paul Madore, and others, the homosexual agenda has encountered more serious resistance in Maine than in any other New England state. Sure, Mainers are worn out by the “queer” debate — something that GLBT activists count on to achieve their misguided goals — but they still know a fraud when they see one. Please help Mike — who needs to raise $100,000 immediately for the marriage-defense campaign — and the good people at Maine Family Policy Councill any way you can. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.com

From the Maine Family Policy Council:

Heath Will Lead Peoples Veto
By Staff

In the early 1990s Mike Heath said that the push for gay rights wouldn’t end until homosexual marriage was enacted.  Twice he persuaded a majority of Mainers to affirm common sense in statewide voting.  The 47 year old father of three is prepared to do it again.  Today he announced that he would lead his third peoples veto of sex outside of marriage.

The people of Maine know what marriage is,”  said Heath.  “Politicians pretend this debate is complicated and emotional.  It isn’t.  Maine people know the difference between right and wrong.  What has been going on in Augusta for the past twenty years is a horrific farse.”

In 1998 Heath campaigned for equal rights [against a pro-homosexual “sexual orientation” law].  He said he will do that again this time.

He continued, “The other side has that part right.  This is about equal rights.  It is about making sure everyone has equal legal rights that are rooted in something substantial.  Common sense tells all of us that you can’t give rights to people for doing wrong!”

“It is also a matter of freedom of conscience.  No government has the right to silence the people in a matter pertaining to a grave moral evil, nor will any government ever have the right to equate a grave moral evil with a sacred institution,”  he said.

Heath has been married for 27 years.  He reminded everyone that all Mainers can already get married.  They can marry someone of the opposite gender.  Real equal rights preserve, honor and uphold that reality.

The Peoples Veto will begin as soon as the Secretary of State provides petitions to Heath.  He said he looks forward to working with everyone in Maine who wants to preserve marriage and urged people to call 207-592-4137 or e-mail him at  [email protected]
