Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society."

Just thinking again...


I was doing some reading and came across the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. I confess that I had not read it since I was in school many years ago. Somehow, now, it has taken on new meaning. Read it again through new eyes and see what you think...very interesting...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Hail to the Chief...and the Joke

I want you to see this. Not just see it, but play it over and over again. This is the vast difference between a military who is PROUD of THEIR Commander in Chief that used to be one of them and who they will take a bullet for, and a military who has no respect for someone that was thrust upon them and has no clue what he's doing.

I am SO proud of these men and women who have given so much.

In these last days...


WOW...another sign of the times. A gunman walks into a Baptist church in Illinois and opens fire, killing the pastor.

For 30 years of my life I have been involved in the music ministries of the various churches we have attended. I have been everything from a music minister to vocalist to instrumentalist and worship leader. When we came to GCC quite frankly, I was tired of playing music and wanted to do something else to minister. To make a long story short, I became a part of our church's security team and have never looked back. A couple of years ago, I took on part of the leadership of that team and have found it to be one of the most rewarding ministries I have ever been involved with.

I said all of that as a background to say that I have never been as proud of a group of people as I am our team. Most of us are former or current military and/or law enforcement. We are dedicated to the protection of our church and it's people. Looking back over the years, I never would have thought that this would be such an important ministry...or even one at all. Who would ever have thought that the hatred for God and His people would lead to the church taking up arms to defend itself? Here in America? A country that was founded on freedom of religion and Biblical principals?

I am afraid that this is only the tip of the iceberg. As our nation continues to deteriorate morally, especially under this administration, we will see less tolerance for truth and righteousness under the guise of the government and the secular media having to protect THEMSELVES from US. We are called racist, bigots, narrow-minded, intolerant, (among other things that are not printable,) because we don't espouse or condone the garbage that is being thrust upon us from a society that that has no boundaries or moral compass. Just this week it was announced that BO is going to repeal the ban on embryonic stem cell research. This will make it open season on experimenting with aborted babies and frozen embryos. For decades we have ceased to value life and have made it just a commodity to be bought and sold.

Another thing that bears mentioning is that it is illegal in the state of Illinois for the average citizen to carry a firearm to defend himself. I won't belabor the point, but as most people know, this is a Democrat controlled state and they believe that the state can do a better job of protecting it's citizens than they can do themselves. A church like this will never be able to defend itself unless they hire the state to do it.

God help us as we enter the final days before His return. Give us the strength as a church to defend what we believe, and as a security team to defend our pastors and flock.
