California to Ban Curing Gay Children · August 30, 2012

The California legislature has passed a law that would restrict parents from “trying to ‘cure’ their minor children’s same-sex attractions.”
“If both state houses can agree on the final language, the legislation, which would ban all sexual orientation change effort (SOCE) treatment for minors, will be sent to Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature sometime in September.”

“[The law] unconstitutionally prohibits speech…violates privacy and personal autonomy rights, intermeddles in theological disputes, clashes with other laws and creates significant unintended consequences,” said Matt McReynolds, a staff attorney with Sacramento-based Pacific Justice Institute… The bill threatens to shame patients and silence counselors, therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists,” McReynolds told Fox News.

The bill was sponsored by a coalition of gay rights groups who claim that the bill would help prevent the “harmful impact of reparative therapy.” Opponents of the bill believe that it is a “violation of parental rights,” and that it would have a “‘chilling effect’ on the ability of therapists to treat their patients.”

The bill bans SOCE treatments for minors, regardless of their parents’ desires.

“This is really a serious violation of the constitutional rights of patients and counselors, a violation of privacy and an outright attack on the rights of parents to decide what is best for their children,” said Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute.

Public opposition to the bill has been loud and long. But now it appears to have passed both houses in the California legislature.

“Likewise also, as it was in the days of Lot… even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” Luke 17:28, 30

Free Speech Under Attack by Gay Supporters · August 29, 2012

Chick-fil-A, a fast-food chicken chain based in Atlanta, Georgia has garnered a lot of criticism from the gay movement in the United States and their supporters.

When Dan Cathy, its president publically expressed his traditional and Christian views concerning marriage, they garnered praise and denunciation. Some supported him with a “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” and others condemned him with a “Same-Sex Kiss Day.”

“Behind all the theatrics, though, there’s a serious point to be made about freedom of speech, one that appears to have escaped a number of politicians who called for punishment of the Atlanta-based company because of the views of its president.”

Cathy said that he supports “the biblical definition of the family unit” and that the nation is “inviting God’s judgment” by moving to recognize same-sex marriage.”

“When Cathy’s comments gained wider circulation, several big-city politicians lost sight of the First Amendment. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino darkly warned that “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston.” The company, he said, might find it difficult to get city licenses. San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel pronounced that “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” (Does everyone in Chicago share the same values?) And a Chicago alderman, Joe Moreno, threatened to use his office to block Chick-fil-A’s planned restaurant in his community.”

While anyone can legally disagree or even denounce Cathy’s views, “thuggishly threatening the company’s livelihood with government action? That’s downright un-American.” And it is illegal and discriminatory.

“Menino has since tried to backpedal. An Emanuel spokesman clarified that the mayor never said he’d block the company. Even so, if city underlings got the original message, they could make life difficult for Chick-fil-A.”

The message is clear. “CEOs of retail companies are better off not shouting their views,” particularly if the gay rights movement has their way. In the United States, speech is protected. But the gay movement wants to shut down any speech that opposes them. This is just one recent high-profile example.

“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot… Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” Please take the time to read these amazing study guides.

Is Your Mind a Hacker’s Next Target? Scientists Test Feasibility of Cheap Devices and ‘Brain Spyware’

An international group of researchers have presented a successful method to show how hackers could use a relatively cheap piece of equipment and software to gain access to secrets inside your mind.

Presented earlier this month at the USENIX Security Symposium, “On the Feasibility of Side-Channel Attacks With Brain-Computer Interfaces” discusses how with the emergence of technology that allows users to communicate via their thoughts alone, software could be developed to spy on things like your pin number or other passwords.

“The security risks involved in using consumer-grade BCI devices have never been studied and the impact of malicious software with access to the device is unexplored,” the researchers abstract reads. “We take a first step in studying the security implications of such devices and demonstrate that this upcoming technology could be turned against users to reveal their private and secret information. We use inexpensive electroencephalography (EEG) based BCI devices to test the feasibility of simple, yet effective, attacks.”

Researchers Show How BCI Devices Combined With Malicious Software Could Hack Users Minds for Informatino

This headset sells for only $299. (Image: Emotiv)

CNET has more on the presentation:

The research was inspired by the growing number of games and other mind apps available for low-cost consumer EEG devices such as Emotiv’s EPOC headset, which lets users interact with computers using their thoughts alone.

Malicious developers could create a “brain spyware” app designed to trick users into thinking about sensitive information, which it would then steal.

The researchers tested the feasibility of this by outfitting 28 subjects with Emotive headsets, which are available to anyone for $299. They showed these subjects images like bank cards and ATMs and asked them specific questions. The researchers then used signal processing software to analyze their brainwaves.

What they found was that the uncertainty of guessing the private information was decreased 15 to 40 percent when the technology was used compared to random guessing.

CNET reports the researchers saying:

“The captured EEG signal could reveal the user’s private information about, e.g., bank cards, PIN numbers,” the researchers conclude.

“This is still very noisy data signal, (and the) devices are not made for detecting these kinds of patterns,” Martinovic told the conference, “but it was possible to see that in any of these experiments, we could actually perform better than a pure random guess.”

Researcher Ivan Martinovic said it is only a matter of time before the technology improves leaving minds vulnerable to divulging information that could give hackers more accuracy in their attacks.

During World War II, buying was controlled for some items (such as sugar, tires, and auto fuel) by requiring ration stamps. Without stamps, money was worthless. In this highly computerized age, a system based on your Social Security number could easily be set up. Unless you agreed to cooperate with the worldwide coalition, your number, when punched in before a purchase, could show you disqualified. I do not know precisely how all this will come about. But we can be positive it will happen because in Revelation 13:16, 17, God says it will.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Paul Ryan’s Catholicism · August 28, 2012

Mitt Romney chose a Roman Catholic as his vice-presidential running mate. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) is the chair of the U.S. House of Representative’s Budget Committee.

Romney pointed out that he is not only a fiscal conservative, but also a leading conservative on Catholic social issues like opposing abortion and gay marriage. “A faithful Catholic, Paul believes in the worth and dignity of every human life,” Romney said, when introducing him. Ryan has an abiding respect for all human life, including unborn children and their mothers, the disabled and the elderly.”

Catholics have now become a political force to be reckoned with in the United States. Ryan is certainly going to appeal to many mid-west and “middle-of-the-road” Catholics who are considered the “quintessential swing vote.”

“No presidential candidate has won the White House without winning Catholics since at least the early 1990s.” This fact, no doubt, drove Romany in the direction of selecting a conservative, low-key Roman Catholic as his running mate.

Both parties will have Roman Catholic vice-presidential candidates, as Joe Biden is also Roman Catholic. President Obama will be the only protestant among the four candidates in the two parties. Romney is a Mormon.

“The Catholic Church has helped frame this year’s election by strenuously opposing a rule in President Obama’s health care law that requires insurance companies to provide free contraception coverage to nearly all American employees, including those at Catholic colleges and hospitals.”

“In an interview with CNN, former GOP hopeful Newt Gingrich, who is Catholic, said that Ryan would shore up support in a Catholic community that feels it is ‘under siege.’”

Roman Catholicism “is silently growing into power. Her doctrines are exerting their influence in legislative halls, in the churches, and in the hearts of men… Stealthily and unsuspectedly she is strengthening her forces to further her own ends when the time shall come for her to strike.” The Great Controversy, page 581

Settting Dates for Christ’s Return

By Pastor Doug Batchelor

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.”
—Proverbs 13:12 (NKJV)

Few things cause more sadness than failed expectations. Over time, many believers have been discouraged by failed predictions of Jesus’ coming.

Jesus cautions in Matthew 24:11, “Many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” It’s a straightforward warning that He repeats a little later in verse 24. He says, “If any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not” (v. 23).

The subject of this article is extremely important: dealing with the danger of setting or embracing particular dates for Jesus’ return. Christians need to be reminded periodically what the Bible plainly says about this perilous practice, even now, when it seems like His return could come at any moment.

When anyone starts predicting the day and hour of the second coming, in light of everything Jesus said about what we can know and what we can’t know, it’s reckless.

Still, we’ve all been exposed to these false predictions, and it’s not going to stop. Probably one of the most well-known episodes in recent times was when Harold Camping, president of Family Radio, predicted that Christ would return May 21, 2011. When that date passed, he said it would be October 21, 2011—and obviously, if you’re reading this article, we’re still here. His adherents were so convinced that judgment day would occur that many sold everything they had to announce this prediction all across America.

Sadly, Camping had already once predicted that Jesus would come in September 1994. His followers did not learn from his first mistake, but had they known their Bibles, they would have seen the Word is very clear on the matter of date setting. That’s why it’s so important for you and I to be clear about it too.

A Brief History of Date Setting
History is replete with those who have set a date or two for Christ to return—and then watched those dates come and go. There isn’t enough space here to cover all of the false prognostications, but it would be good to cover a few high points.

But first, let me clarify that some of these date setters were well meaning, so I’m not judging their love for the Lord. Some of them just misapplied Bible verses and overzealously proclaimed it on a grand scale …

  • William Miller, a well-intentioned and godly man, said the Lord was coming October 22, 1844. He took Bible prophecies that talked about the sanctuary and misapplied them to the second coming. I believe he had an accurate date but the wrong event.
  • 
Hal Lindsey wrote the bestselling book The Late Great Planet Earth, in which he predicted Jesus would come in 1988. Thousands got excited, but none of it happened. Today, Lindsey still has a TV program where he explains prophecy.
  • Edgar C. Whisenant sold 4.5 million copies of his book 88 Reasons Why the Lord Is Going to Come by 1988. Trinity Broadcasting Network interrupted their programming to tell people how to get ready for the rapture. The next day, their normal programming simply resumed.

Non-Christians Aren’t Immune
It’s not just Christians who are interested in apocalyptic date setting. Remember Y2K? And once again a troubled world is asking questions about the end. You’ve likely heard about the Mayan calendar, which some say declares the last day on December 21, 2012. However …

Authors disagree about what humankind should expect. … Sandra Noble, executive director of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, says, “For the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to mark the end of the whole cycle; to render December 21st, 2012 as a doomsday … is a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in” (USA Today, 3/27/2007, emphasis added).

Did you catch that? It’s not only televangelists trying to “cash in” on date setting. It’s also people trying to sell books or tickets to a movie.

My wife Karen and I were in Belize recently and explored the Mayan ruins. At one point, I was sitting in a van with a driver who was Mayan and asked him about it. He just laughed and said, “It doesn’t mean anything.” So why do we get so excited about these things?

Do We Really Want to Know?
There’s a certain amount of insecurity we all feel about the future, knowing our lives are going to end. Perhaps some just want to know when their time is up so they can fit everything in on their bucket list before it’s too late.

Still, if you could know the day you were going to die, would you want to? What if I told you it was 100 years from now? Would you feel better about it? If it’s next week, would you want to know? Are you ready for it? For you, the jury might still be out.

What kind of attitude should you have about the second coming? Fortunately, the Bible tells us. Even in New Testament times, self-styled prophets were unsettling everybody by predicting dates for the end. Paul writes quite a bit about the second coming in 2 Thessalonians. He says, “Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord … we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter” (2:1, 2 NKJV).

It’s interesting that he says not to be troubled. Everything else we read in the Bible offers a sense of urgency—“I am coming quickly”—yet Paul says here, “Wait a second! Don’t be shaken.” Even if you have a dream, hear it spoken by a famous evangelist, read it in a bestselling book, or even if a spirit appears saying it has the exact date calculated—don’t be troubled! Why? Because we don’t base our conclusions on dreams. It’s got to go along with what the Word of God says.

What Does God Want Us to Know?
Does the Lord want you to calculate the day of His coming? In Mathew 24, Jesus says, regarding the temple in Jerusalem, that not one stone was going to be left upon another. His disciples surely thought, “Wow! That must be the end of the world!” So they asked Jesus when these things would be. But see how Jesus answers them in verse 36: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

In Acts 1:6, we read, “They asked Him, saying, ‘Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?’ And He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.’” Notice that emphasis—the Father has it in His own authority.

Instead, Jesus takes them from their focus on when He’s coming back and places it elsewhere. “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me … to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8 NKJV). The reason Jesus gives us the Holy Spirit is not so we can untangle a mathematical secret and announce it in a book. No! He gives us the Holy Spirit so we can live godly lives and bring people to the cross.

“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them [food] in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing” (Matthew 24:45, 46). Jesus wants us to be feeding others the Word of God. He doesn’t want us to be running off to some wilderness hideout, holing up like hermits waiting for the end. You might have met people like this. They want to calculate a date because they want to know when to start liquidating their assets, running to the hills, storing up their ammo and dry goods. They want to know that they are ready for the end. Who are they thinking about? Themselves. They’re not thinking about helping the lost get ready to meet Jesus.

Christians ought to be as motivated to share the gospel now as His disciples were then. Christ has not withdrawn His commission simply because He’s closer to coming back than yesterday. Why do we need a date to stir us up? After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, our church had our best attendance in years. We had people spilling out of the sanctuary. They thought, “Maybe it’s the end; I’d better get back to church.” But Luke 12:40 says, “Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.”

You Might Not Know 
What You Think You Know
As a prophecy teacher, I’ve often been asked if the ongoing economic crisis is a sign that Jesus is coming. My answer is, “Yes and no.” (I’m not trying to hedge my bets, mind you.) Yes in that it shows we can’t put our trust in money. But no in that Jesus doesn’t say that after great economic stress He’ll come. He actually suggests otherwise: “As it was also in the days of Lot: they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded” (Luke 17:28). In the days of Lot, the citizens were out being industrious and investing their gold the same day the end came.

In a sense, the prophecies of Scripture are better understood looking back. For instance, we know Jesus prophesied His death to the apostles. How many times did He tell them plainly that He was going to be betrayed, crucified, and would rise again? How much good did it do for the disciples? In Luke 24:6–8, after the faithful women arrived at the tomb, the angels said,

He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words.

Typically, the truth of the future can be kind of fantastical—it goes in one ear and out the other because it’s beyond our understanding. Jesus says in John 13:19, “Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.” He’s saying He wants to reveal the future so that when those events happen, people will understand that Jesus is the point of all prophecy. Indeed, prophecy isn’t always about knowing exactly when this or that will happen.

What We Can Know Today
How can we be prepared if we don’t know the date? Jesus says,

When it is evening you say, “It will be fair weather, for the sky is red”; and in the morning, “It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.” … You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2, 3 NKJV).

If you’re in the south and you see the barometric pressure dropping, you know it’s time to batten down the hatches. You might not know exactly when that storm will strike, but you do know to be prepared.

In the same way, when we look at the confluence of everything happening in our world, it’s significant. Wars and rumors of war are a daily headline. Political and religious tensions are growing. Monstrous natural disasters seem to strike every other month. Doesn’t it seem to you that if Christ doesn’t come soon, all flesh would die? But knowing this isn’t about a date or hour—it’s about something else altogether.

How You Can Be Ready 
Even When You Don’t Know
First Thessalonians 5:1–3 is an impressive warning for the people of God:

Concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.

The Lord is not coming at a time when people are looking for a fire escape. Rather, Jesus is going to come at a time when His people are serving Him because of their love for Him. Luke 21:34 says, “Take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly” (NKJV). If we get caught up in the cares of the world, we won’t be preparing our hearts to meet Jesus.

If we’re living lives of consistent surrender and obedience and looking for opportunities to share our faith, we won’t need to worry about the date on the calendar because we’ll be ready every day for the Lord’s coming!

A Spiritual Rush and Depression
One of the major problems with date setting is that it’s like getting your vigor from eating a giant candy bar; sure, you’ll feel a surge of energy, but there will be lethargy afterward. Setting a date gives people an artificial spiritual high. When the date passes, there is a corresponding depression that follows.

The fallout for these false alarms can be an attitude of increasing doubt about the Word of God—like the boy who cried, “Wolf!” Read 2 Peter 3:4 and ask yourself how motivated you would be to live for Christ if you were to stop believing He’s really coming.

His Promise Is Sure
Thousands of date setters have failed, but that doesn’t mean the Lord has forgotten about us. He’s coming back; we might not know the day and the hour, but we know He is coming and the time is near. We just need to be ready for it.

Remember, the Lord doesn’t want us to get ready because we know the date. He wants us to be ready because we know Him. If you’re motivated to get ready because you know a date, you have the wrong motive. How would you live if you thought Jesus was coming in a week? I ask you to live like that now for the rest of your life. Just be the way He wants you to be because you love Him and know He is coming someday soon.

Maybe you haven’t truly accepted Jesus as your Savior, trying to wait until the eleventh hour to get ready. Don’t tempt fate. Wouldn’t you like to know that you’re ready now? God is coming to rescue us from the sin-stained world—that’s a promise.

My prayer is that the Lord will deliver all His people from our inclination to calculate and fix the date on our calendars. Instead, let’s invite Him into our hearts now so we can be ready at any moment.

Yet Another Priestly Scandal · August 27, 2012

A Woodburn, OR priest was accused of drunkenly fondling a 12-year-old boy. “The Archdiocese of Portland offered an open-ended loan” to the not-so-reverend priest.

Woodburn Police arrested Perez after the boy “ran out of a parish-owned house, telling authorities the clergyman had fondled him. Perez told investigators he had gotten very drunk and passed out and didn’t remember what had happened. But he acknowledged that he drove to the boy’s home, where he fell to his knees, and apologized to his parents, according to a police report.”

The Mexican priest, who is a permanent legal resident of the U.S., chased the boy down the street yelling to have him come back. The boy had been staying overnight at the priest’s home before going on a trip to the mountains. The priest had asked his parents permission to do so. After the encounter, “the boy packed up his belongings and ran out of the house just before midnight. Perez, wearing only his underwear, is accused of chasing after the boy.”

The judge found evidence that Perez “would pose a risk to the victim in the case and the general public if he was released pending trial,” and ordered that he be held without bail.

A grand jury has also “returned an eight-count indictment against Perez. It charges him with first-degree sexual abuse, abuse of a child in the display of sexually explicit conduct, tampering with physical evidence, four counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor and driving under the influence of intoxicants.

Perez has hired one of the best defense lawyers in the state. “If in fact the priest has admitted wrongdoing, then one reason for going with someone like Marc [Blackman] is that he is so well respected he might be able to negotiate a more tolerable plea bargain,” he said. Picking Blackman, he said, showed one thing: “They went right to the top of the class.”

Again current events in the news have lifted the veil on the secret and sordid behavior of Roman Catholic priests who claim to be representatives of God on earth.

“And the woman… [had] a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.” Revelation 17:4
