QOTD: “During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.

On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior… “There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he continued. “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.”

“That is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws,” Cannon concluded, “to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve.”” –Noah Rothman

“Sadness, confusion, loss and the road to Emmaus”: Video of my Passover/Easter message

Crackpot Preppers

emmausroadOn Wednesday night, I had the honor of teaching at a wonderful church in Tucson, Arizona. It is shepherded by Pastor Robert Furrow. When I had first accepted in the invitation last fall, I had intended to teach about “The Future of the Middle East In Light of Bible Prophecy.” But in the meantime, Robert’s dear wife, Lisa, went home to be with the Lord after a very difficult battle with cancer.

Having been to Tucson numerous times over the years to teach with and for Robert and Lisa, and having built a sweet friendship with them both, and having prayed for the Lord to let this cup pass from them both, I was so saddened when I got the news. It was hard to fathom such a strong and faithful woman of God was gone. I was happy for her — she is well and whole and worshipping in the presence of Jesus. But I was grieved for Robert and his family and his congregation. It was an honor, therefore, to be out there this week. I was glad to be able to spend time with Robert, and pray with him, and listen as he shared with me the hard road he’s been on since the Lord took Lisa home to heaven.

In that context, I didn’t feel I was supposed to teach about the Middle East. Rather, I felt moved to teach about the two Jewish disciples on the road to Emmaus, about their sadness and their confusion and their deep sense of loss, perhaps even betrayal, when the man they thought was the Messiah was betrayed, arrested and crucified.  Here is the link to the audio and the video of the message. I hope you and your family will take some time to listen to the message and share it with others. And may the Lord bless you, and comfort you, and encourage you this Passover and Easter season.
