D.D. Nave comes out against same-sex marriage, cites Christian beliefs

Dear Editor:

The Supreme Court ruling making same-sex marriage legal in every state was cause for tears as Ezekiel 9 and other verses say. We Christians need to pray for unity and pray for wisdom for the leaders of the nation, healing for the community and revival in the church. God can work even this evil ruling for good if it serves as a wake up call and brings unity in the church. Homosexuals accomplished all they have by standing boldly for what they believe and with unity of only 4 percent of the population. The Bible tells Christians to be bold and have unity in sharing the gospel.  In these end times Christians must not fight with each other over secondary matters and stop trying to change people’s minds about secondary matters and share with them the only thing that can give them eternal peace the gospel of Jesus!  

With the Supreme Courts decision to make a new right to homosexual marriage we can say Obama was right when he said, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.” We are in fact an antiChristian nation. People celebrating said “love won!” However self love or lust won and the constitution lost. The Bible said in 2Peter 3:3...”there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts.  

It’s sad people don’t understand our constitution or the Bible. Many wrongly believe Obama is a Christian. Obama’s responds when asked how to get heaven and what his definition of sin is, clearly show he isn’t a Christian. Obama said, “I believe there are many paths to the same place.” “Being out of alignment with my values,” is sin. Dr. Jack Van Impe said Obama isn’t a Christian because the Bible says if anyone teach another gospel than Jesus and His death, burial and resurrection they are to be cursed. Pray for Obama and our courts! .

Our founders wanted the Constitution to be respected and gave only one way to change it, by the amendment process. The five on the Supreme Court showed no respect for God or the Constitution when they declared a new right to homosexual marriage. These showed no respect for the Constitution when they treat it as a living (changeable) document and ignore its historical interpretation. The Constitution requires a long process to pass constitutional amendments as in the U.S. Bill of Rights to add new rights. In June five members of the Supreme Court did it by one case ruling without a constitutional amendment. What other cases will these five misinterpret, overreach or twist the Constitution to advance their liberal agenda which may oppress gun owners and further oppress Christians. Members of the military pledge to defend the Constitution. The best way to do that is impeach the five justices now. It’s constitutional. It’s warranted!

Wintroub sends an open letter to the Johnson County Commission

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor:

This is an open letter to the Johnson County County Commission and to The Tomahawk’s readers (or at least to those who read the letters to the editor). The last agenda item for the commission’s July 16, 2015, meeting is “Approve Resolution Supporting the Protection of the Freedom of Expression Rights of Traditional Bible Believing Christians”. Item 1: It does not say “Take up”, “Discuss”, or “Vote on”; it says “Approve”. Like it’s a done deal. Item 2: Expression Rights of bible thumpers? What’s so special about them? How about a resolution supporting protection of EVERYBODY’S expression rights? Item 3: What in tarnation is a “Traditional Bible Believing Christian”? WHOSE tradition? There are a bazillion Christian traditions! Is this commission a government body or is it an arm of the Southern Baptists?
