The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

While Most American Churches Sleep ...
Boy Scouts' chief says ban on gay adults 'unsustainable': "The head of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has said that the organisation's long-standing ban on participation by openly gay adults is unsustainable. Robert Gates said no changes would be made at the meeting, but opened the door to a future policy review. The former US Defence Secretary cited defiant chapters, possible legal challenges and other developments related to gay rights in the US. Gay rights groups have welcomed Mr. Gates' comments."
Court Upholds Law That Could Imprison Pastors For Preaching Biblical Doctrines: "When the civil government orders you to do something that violates God’s Word, 'we ought to obey God rather than men.' (Acts 5:29)
"In 2009, President Barack Obama signed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law. The law was pushed by every gay rights organization in the country. They claim that anyone who says anything negative about homosexuality is guilty of bullying them and therefore constitutes a hate crime. Under the strictest definition of the law, any biblical preaching against sin in general, especially that of homosexuality could be considered hate language and therefore a hate crime. If convicted of the felony offense, a person could spend as much as 10 years in prison."
America's Decay Is Speeding Up: "With few exceptions, every aspect of American life is in decline. 'Decay' is the word...
"The Decline of the Family: Nearly half (48 percent) of American children are born to a mother who is not married. Forty-three percent of American children live without a father in the home.....
"The Decline of Education: Compared to nearly all of American history, the average American school teaches much less about important subjects such as American history, English grammar.... Instead, schools are teaching much more about 'social justice,' environmentalism and sex.... Most universities have become secular seminaries for the dissemination of Leftism.
"The End of Male and Female: Whatever one's position on samesex marriage, one must acknowledge that at the core of the argument for this redefinition of marriage is that gender doesn't matter.....
"The End of Right and Wrong: At least two generations of American young people have been taught that moral categories are nothing more than personal (or societal) preferences....
"The End of Christianity: There are no moral truths because there is no longer a religious basis for morality. More than the Enlightenment, it was the Bible... that guided the Founders' and other Americans' values. Not anymore."
Wake-up, Pastors! Wake-up, Christians!
