The Lord gave us another first time visitor today. Bro Turner taught on The 4 Beasts of Daniel. My morning message was "Do not sin against the child" and the afternoon study was "The Deluge of Noah". We look forward to FFF this next Friday at TLBC.

It was so good to be in the house of the Lord today. Please visit our Church website and see the outline of today's sermon or even listen to the audio LINK. click here
A great man was born 279 years ago.
George Washington was a freedom fighter, a leader, and one of our greatest Presidents. But, much of General Washington's greatness was marked not by what he did, but by what he chose not to do.
He could have been a King.
Instead, he stood for Liberty and stepped aside after eight years, allowing our young Republic to grow into the greatest nation in Human history.
2012 offers our movement a tremendous opportunity. Our nation is beset with crippling debt, an out of control federal government, and a foreign policy that weakens our national defense and isolates us from the world.
But with hard work and determination, we can change course and turn our country back toward Liberty and all of its rewards.
Quite frankly, we need to elect a President in 2012 who will do a lot less: less meddling in the economy, less spending, less warrantless ransacking, less bailing out of Wall Street, less inflating, and less foreign aid and overseas intervention.
We need a President who will respect our Constitution, not someone who simply pays lip service to our traditions.
Because I want a President who does so much less, a lot of people ask me if this means I want a weak President.
My answer is "No!" I want a strong President - a President like George Washington.
I want a President strong enough NOT to take power he should not have.

After two years of President Obama installing his own handpicked bureaucrats in EVERY federal agency, I'm afraid we're about to witness an assault on our liberties like few we've ever seen.
With congressional statists in disarray, Obama now plans to use the Executive Branch to ram through sweeping changes in policy to control speech, wreck private enterprise, install vast parts of Cap and Tax, and more.
But a little known law could stop Obama cold in his tracks - if Representatives and Senators have the GUTS to use it.
That's why it's vital you complete the petition to your Representative and Senators before it's too late.
As you'll see, the petition urges your Representative and Senators to cosponsor and seek roll call votes on the REINS Act to STOP out of control government bureaucrats from ramming their agenda down the throats of the American people.
How important is this?
Just weeks ago, the Federal Communications Commission set the stage for a complete government takeover of the internet.
Then, the so-called "Environmental Protection Agency" announced its intention to start regulating carbon dioxide emissions - the first step toward IMPOSING a full-blown "Cap and Tax" scheme without so much as a congressional vote.
And unless you and I act IMMEDIATELY, I'm afraid there could be much more to come, including:
*** The so-called "Fairness Doctrine," a shameless FCC attempt to SHUT DOWN free speech, guaranteeing the only opinions you hear and see are "government-approved";
*** Card Check Instant Union Organizing, where the NLRB would strip workers of the right to vote in a secret ballot election, subjecting hardworking men and women to threats, intimidation, and worse from union militants;
*** MANDATED naked body scans, not only required by "Homeland Security" for American citizens to board an airplane, but just to go to a mall, see a sporting event, or travel by bus or train, as well;
*** Death panels, handing "Health and Human Services'" unaccountable government bureaucrats the power to deny care - resulting in what amounts to life and death power over you and your loved ones;
*** 401(k) seizure, allowing the IRS and the Social Security Administration to CONFISCATE Americans' private retirement accounts to help the federal government pay its bills.
And all that might only be the beginning!
The truth is, for decades, presidents of BOTH parties and their federal agencies have abused their power to "rule by decree" - bypassing Congress and SHREDDING the U.S. Constitution - to impose their agenda.
In fact, just during his two years in office, President Obama's administration has issued TWO HUNDRED new regulations and Executive Orders - all with price tags of well over $100 million EACH.
Now, especially after the "shellacking" that was the 2010 elections, the statists are looking even more to federal agencies to ram their agenda down the throats of the American people.
That's why you and I must act now to "REIN IN" Big Government before it's too late.
If passed, the REINS Act would prohibit presidents and out of control government agencies from imposing sweeping new regulations on American citizens without a congressional vote.
That means the FCC, the EPA, and Homeland Security can make all the "recommendations" they want, but they'll mean nothing unless passed by Congress.
In short, these massive and bloated unconstitutional bureaucracies would be literally stripped of their power - paving the way for their outright ELIMINATION.
But it won't be easy. The statists know passage of the REINS Act would effectively END any hope of "remaking America" with unelected and unaccountable government bureaucrats.
And after our incredible success at pushing AUDIT THE FED, they won't be caught off guard again.
That's why you and I MUST fight back harder than ever.
Over the next few weeks, I'm planning to massively turn up the heat on Members of Congress to cosponsor and seek roll call votes on the REINS Act.
Using direct mail and email - in addition to internet, radio, and newspaper advertising - my goal is to recruit and mobilize a grassroots army to force roll call votes in both houses of Congress.
In fact, I'm hoping to contact up to twelve million Americans just in the initial push!
Then - once votes are scheduled - I'm planning to launch yet another mail and TV ad campaign, targeting key Representatives and Senators to urge them to pass the REINS Act.
The good news is, no Representative, Senator - or President - wants to face reelection having gone on record AGAINST a bill to stop unaccountable Washington, D.C. bureaucrats from running our lives.
So just forcing a vote on the REINS Act puts you and me in a win/win situation.
Not only will statist politicians who oppose the REINS Act pay the political price at the ballot box when faced with reelection . . .
. . . But, recognizing how much of their power is at stake, federal bureaucrats may start to think twice before imposing their radical agenda on the rest of us!
Now, this fight won't be easy, so I'm counting on your IMMEDIATE action.
First, won't you complete the enclosed petition to your Representative and Senators, urging them to cosponsor and seek roll call votes on the REINS Act?
And then, if you can, I hope you'll agree to chip in a contribution of $10, $25, $50 - or whatever you can afford.
Larry, should you and I succeed in passing the REINS Act, we'll strike a major blow against Big Government.
Bloated and unconstitutional federal bureaucracies will see much of their power stripped - paving the way for their outright ELIMINATION.
And if we don't act, all of our victories could go up in smoke as we see the statists' full agenda IMPOSED on American citizens without so much as a congressional vote.
So, please complete the petition and chip in a contribution of $10, $25, $50 - or whatever you can afford - IMMEDIATELY!
P.S. After the shellacking they took in the 2010 elections, the statists are now scheming to use presidential "Executive Orders" and draconian federal regulations to impose their radical agenda.
That's why you and I must fight for passage of the REINS Act, which would stop the imposition of sweeping new regulations on American citizens without congressional approval.

By now I am sure that you have seen the news reports or the very disturbing videos shot undercover by the pro-life group Live Action in several Planned Parenthood facilities. In multiple videos we see different Planned Parenthood employees:
— offering to facilitate the “health” needs of girls as young as 14 who are being sexually trafficked;
— offering to assist in arranging abortions for underage girls;
— advising on how to bypass legal age requirements for various “health” services;
— giving a pimp pointers on how quickly he can get underage girls back on the “street” after an abortion; and
— providing tips on how to obtain insurance through public health assistance or taxpayer funded programs for abortions.
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli called the videos “shocking.” U.S. Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) called Planned Parenthood’s “duplicity and potential criminality” an outrage. Pence also stated:
The time to deny any and all funding to Planned Parenthood is now. In the wake of yet another scandal involving Planned Parenthood, I urge Congress to move the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act to the floor for immediate consideration.
Take a Stand Now by Signing our Petition! Click HERE
The implications of Planned Parenthood’s apparent support of these terrible activities should shake all pro-life American taxpayers to our very core. That’s why I believe that every CitizenLink team member should sign our “Remember the Family” petition, which urges Congress to defund Planned Parenthood and stand for other pro-family measures. Please go here to sign if you haven’t already.

We had a glorious week last week with a guest speaker holding services with us at TLBC nightly in celebration of our 31st Anniversary as a New Testament Congregation. Brother Mike Prater and his wife Mary Jane visited us from Granite Bay, California. Elder Prater preached several fine sermons. We are working on DVD copies of the services and there are AUDIO links to the two sermons he preached in our last Lord's Day services. Click Here
We pray for the turmoil in Egypt to be resolved according to the will of God. It is encouraging to see some common sense shown by the latest Federal Court verdict regarding the unconstitutional health care reform bill that was crammed through last year against the will of "We the People".
I am sending another letter to my Senators and Congressman on the Illegal Immigration issue (for what good it will do). They seldom listen to my input. If you are as concerned as I am about this issue please feel free to clip and past the following and sent it to your two Senators and your Congressman too.
Dear Senator and Representative,
Now is the time to pass legislation to correct the precedents that have blighted our nation with the "anchor baby" and "birth tourism" welcome mat that invites illegality and is cheapening the sanctity of U.S. citizenship.
We have witnessed the unconstitutional failure to provide a secure border under the "leadership" of present political elitists that resulted in a sharp rise in violence and the deaths of both American civilians and U.S. Border Agents by drug smugglers, international criminal cartels, and illegal immigrant gangs.
This "open borders" Administration may well prove to be one of the most blatant violators of U.S. immigration law to ever occupy high public office.
We must plug the hole and stop turning a blind eye to the illegal usurpers of U.S. Citizenship. If someone wants a part of the American "DREAM" we should not reward the breaking of our immigration laws. Illegals should be sent home so they can go to the end of the line and wait their turn like those who enter our country properly. This is a basic principle that most people learn before they are six years old.
