Some Things Christians Need to Know!

This week we've heard about the potential candidates on the GOP side considering runs for President. There's a lot of hatred being spewed against gay people again, and they're trying to use Christianity as a pedestal for it (again). BELOW ARE SOME THINGS ALL CHRISTIANS SHOULD KNOW DIRECT FROM THE BIBLE!
    One example of the recent hatred is from the  "preacher" that blessed Newt Gingrich on his run for president. This "preacher" said on radio this week  "America has let gays go on too long, and its now up to the muslim community to come and execute them for their behavior against the Bible."  UM... There are some serious Wackos out there. 
  Related to that, Tom found some 
interesting things that most Christians may not know. Look at these:
 I wonder if all the Christians know about this one.   
If you eat meat, or use a clock to tell the time, then you’re going to hell, too.
Leviticus 19:26
26 Ye shall not eat anything with blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times.

Here’s the verse that forbids getting a tattoo:
Leviticus 19:28
28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

With respect to NEWT GINGRICH running for president... LOOK AT THIS! !
Currently married to Callista Bisek, Newt Gingrich has been married three times. His two previous marriages ended in divorce after he had affairs with younger women and while his wives were seriously ill.
Newt’s response when asked how he should be qualified to give a speech on family values, while he, himself, has been unfaithful to his wife:  "It doesn't matter what I do.  People need to hear what I have to say. There's no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn't matter what I live."
 Source: John H. Richardson. "Newt Gingrich: The Indispensable Republican." 8/10/2010.

While running a family-values campaign in 1978, Gingrich responded to reports that he'd had extramarital affairs by saying:  "In the 1970s, things happened."
Source: AP. "Wife's lawyer to question woman in Gingrich divorce case." Marysville Journal-Tribune. Marysville, Ohio. 8/13/1999. pg. 2.

In just a quick search, we found over two pages of Biblical references that define and forbid adultery, and how to punish adulterers. 

Just for the record, according to Scripture, Newt Gingrich meets the Bible’s definition of an adulterer and should be put to death.
Thou shalt not commit ADULTERY.
Neither shalt thou commit ADULTERY.

And the man that committeth ADULTERY with another man's wife, even he that committeth ADULTERY with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit ADULTERY:
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed ADULTERY with her already in his heart.

But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit ADULTERY: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth ADULTERY.

And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth ADULTERY: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit ADULTERY.

And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth ADULTERY against her.

And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be marries another, she committeth ADULTERY.

Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth ADULTERY: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth ADULTERY.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
