Despite losing in the United States Supreme Court, the state of Indiana is still arguing that there are virtually no eighth amendment limits on what it can seize using civil asset forfeiture, according to Reason.
In fact, Indiana Solicitor General Thomas Fisher argued in Indiana Supreme Court last week that it would be constitutional to seize any and every car that exceeded the speed limit. It was an argument that drew laughter from the U.S. Supreme Court last year.
Description: We live in an age where most will take credit for doing good. However, when most fall short, they seek to blame others for their misdeeds. This is a hypocrisy that shouldn’t be a part of a Christian’s character. In this message, we visit Matthew 25 in order to learn from Christ how to assume responsibility with the things God has given us, being good stewards and reaping the benefits of being responsible people.
Description: We examine the multitude of ways modern society has exalted that which is fake. From carefully curated social media posts with flattering pictures which tell a false tale of happiness to the vanity that is glorified through Hollywood productions, modern culture is an expert on producing and consuming that which isn’t real. And the worst part of it is that many whom are a part of the religion of fakery cannot diagnose why they are constantly despondent. In this episode we discover why this is so and the Biblical remedy to one of the worst ills of contemporary society.
The latest example comes courtesy of Marxist and feminist Naomi Wolf. The thesis of her latest book is that Occidental Culture has a history of violently censoring differing forms of love in order to preserve the supposedly oppressive patriarchy. (When reading differing forms of love, understand that this is feminist double-speak, meaning fornication, adultery, homosexuality and other forms of sexual deviancy.) There’s just one problem: it’s all based on a gross misreading of history.
Description: We return to Titus 2 in order to examine the differences between how Christianity defines love and how sinners define love. In essence, Christian love is superior because it is God personified. Secular “love” is hedonism repackaged. In this message we detail how it is imperative to reject the world’s redefinition of love and put godly love into practice.
Description: We visit Titus chapter 2 and examine how believers are called to imitate Christ and then model such maturity unto others. With the increasing secularization of Christianity in the West, this order has been abandoned in favor of a sinful inclination – namely, the imitation of all that is wicked and contrary to Biblical godliness.
Who, in their right
mind, would eschew being praised by the public? Why wouldn’t a
person desire to be lauded and applauded by the masses – even if it
meant sacrificing one’s soul? This is one of the central themes
promoted by secular culture. It’s most visible personalities
routinely demonstrate this “morality on the sacrificial altar for
fame” mentality. Why is it that Christians, who are called to adopt
a more sublime mindset, fall for the trap?
