God, Government & Your Vote

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 23 October 2010 - - - - - - · 1287 views

Tomorrow I will be at New Life Church (LCMS) in Miramar to preach at the 9:45 am service. With the November 2 election right around the corner, I will be speaking on "God, Government & Your Vote" from Romans13. Jesus said, "...give unto Caesar's what is Caesar's" which among other things, for citizens of a Republic, includes...


Church, We've Got Some Work To Do

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 08 October 2010 - - - - - - · 1354 views

This video will help you prepare to vote November. Our national debt now stands at $13.2 TRILLION, 40% of every dollar spent by the Federal government is borrowed. 47% of that debt is being bought up by foreign nations (China has almost 10%). Government does not create wealth - it spends someone else’s wealth - the taxpayers. Government does not...


The Bloodshed Continues - How do we respond?

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 30 September 2010 - - - - - - · 976 views

President Obama's latest Supreme Court nominee, radical pro-abortion advocate Elena Kagan, takes her seat on the Supreme Court on Monday (October 4). A sad day for America - another abortion rights activist will sit on the same court that over 37 years ago legalized the premeditated killing of the unborn. The death rate since 1973 is now at 52 MILLION....


When You Vote - Distinguish Policy From Principle

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 01 September 2010 - - - - - - · 899 views

In any political discussion there will be differences of opinion. Whether the debate is over off shore drilling or how to end a war, differing opinions are bound to surface. However, as we debate issues let’s be careful to make a distinction between policy and principle. As Fr. Frank Pavone points out, “Most disagreements between candidates and...


God, Islam and America

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 10 August 2010 - - - - - - · 1095 views

Is God behind the Muslim threat to America? Throughout Biblical history God repeatedly used other nations (see the book of Judges) to punish the sins of His people, to bring them back to repentance for their sin. Pastor Rusty Lee Thomas writes that we need "…to connect the dots between our spiritual and moral state with the rise and threat of Islam...


Facing Judgment - A Call to Action

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 09 August 2010 - - - - - - · 1003 views

Will America go bankrupt? According to Senator Judd Gregg (R-N.H), “If we continue to spend much more than we take in we'll double our debt in five years and triple it in 10 years and essentially be where Greece is [bankrupt] in about seven years.” (Jane McGrath, CNSNews.com – see below) I don't know whether God will strike at America's...


Lessons From Adrian

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 27 July 2010 - - - - - - · 1166 views

Adrian is my first grandson. He was unplanned but not unwanted or unloved. He was born out of wedlock but not out of God's Providence. When I look into his eyes I am mindful that he is fashioned in the image of God, a reflection of the glory and majesty of his Creator. When we take the life of one of these little ones while in the sanctuary of their...


No Time For Silence

I have watched a brief YouTube video message (see link below) from my friend Pastor Arnold Culbreath to the pastors of America. It is a plea for their help in speaking about abortion in their churches. Rev. Culbreath is the Urban Outreach Director of Protecting Black Life (www.protectingblacklife.org). Millions of post-abortive men and women in the churches...


Race, Censorship & the Tea Party

I haven't attended a Tea Party Rally, but my observation from reports I've seen is that there are a lot of African Americans speaking at the rallies. Lloyd Marcus, Deneen Borelli, Pastor Stephen Broden, Herman Cain, Apostle Claver T. Kamu-Imani, Pastor C.L. Bryant, Chaplain Tommy Davis, Alfonzo Rachel, Ron Miller, Lt. Col. Allen West, Angela...


"Choose Life" and the Obama Stickers

Posted by James P. McGarvey , 17 July 2010 - - - - - - · 944 views

Earlier this week I saw an SUV with one of those bright yellow "Choose Life" Florida license plates and three, that's right, three Obama bumper stickers on the back of the vehicle. A sick feeling came over me. How does one "choose life" while choosing a leader who unashamedly promotes death. The Psalmist wrote, “Can wicked rulers...
