Guiding Principles for My Church
…a voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'make straight the way of the Lord…
~ John 1:23
...the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth.
~ 1 Tim 3:15
He who gives attention to the word shall find good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
~ Prov 16:20
Write, for these words are faithful and true!
~ Rev 21:5
Guiding Principles for My Government
"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty."
~ Thomas Jefferson
"Striving for justice is one of life’s greatest gratifications. In fact, outside of the family, it is the greatest gratification. Without justice, there’s no such thing as liberty and freedom, there’s no such thing as fulfilling life’s possibilities."
~ Ralph Nadar
Guiding Principles for My Family
For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring upon [him] what He has spoken about him.
~ Genesis 18:19
Guiding Principles for My BusinessI fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself. ~ Napoleon Hill
Guiding Principles for My Me
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. Eph 5:15-16

Even in our era of ecumenical “tolerance,” the Talmud’s hatred of Christianity has not subsided in the hearts of Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel. Especially in the occupied territories, the admonitions of the Talmud to persecute Christians and dishonor the name and reputation of Jesus are taken very literally.
According to Dr. Israel Shahak, an Israeli citizen, former WW2 concentration camp inmate and founder of Israel’s Human Rights League, “Dishonoring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism. Spitting on the cross, and especially on the crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, has been obligatory from around 200 A.D. for pious Jews…The increasing strength of the Jewish nation has caused these customs to become more open again but there should be no mistake: the spitting on the cross for converts from Christianity to Judaism, o rganized in Kibbitz Sa’ad and financed by the Israeli government, is an act of traditional Jewish piety.”
Shahak expands: “Pious Jews object to the international plus sign for it is a cross, and it may, in their opinion, influence little children to convert to Christianity. . . It would then be difficult to ‘educate’ them to spit on the cross. . . .In all Hebrew elementary schools (and now many high schools as well) the international plus sign has been forbidden.” 1
Orthodox religious authorities for the state of Israel also advocate burning the New Testament. “…No less a figure than Professor Yehoshaphat Harkabi, former head of Israeli military intelligence, has revealed the facts surrounding Israel’s official burning of the gospels so cherished by all Christians . . .” General Harkabi writes: ‘Chief Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef, who is considered to be a moderate. . .(in 1979) issued a ruling that copies of the New Testament should be burned. This ruling did not remain a dead letter. An item in the newspaper Ma ‘ariv (14 June 1985) reported the burning of a copy of the New Testament found in the library of the Chief Educational officer of the Israeli army
because of Israel’s dependence on Christian and American goodwill, this statute, while on the books, is not rigorously enforced. Israel has incarcerated 9,000 Palestinians without trial, yet remains reluctant to imprison even one American missionary. This could alienate the evangelical “cash cow” whose resources are vital in keeping Israel’s sagging socialist economy afloat. For now, Israeli law enforcement walks a middle road, having to be content with partial measures against proselytizing.
Instead of jailing Christians, Israel demanded about five years ago that some 50 evangelical organizations which lead tours to Israel forbid their participants to witness while in the “Holy Land.” All 50 agreed.
During the first half of the 20th century, Palestine, like modern Lebanon, was home to many Christians. In 1945, 20 percent were Christians. But in 1948, 100,000 terrorized Christian Palestinians fled the Israelis into neighboring countries; many would spend the rest of their lives in detention camps. Today only 2 percent of Israelis are Christians. 6
Similarly, modern Lebanon, so recently bombed to rubble by Israel, is 39 percent Christian. That means about 500 Christians died in Israel’s recent a ttack.
Israel, the great harlot (See, “Israel: On the Way to Empire in the Mideast“) will someday turn in fury and devour the hand that has coddled it for more than a century.
They will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons…” (Luke 21:12)
So intense will be this coming decimation of Christianity that the Zionist new world order will be “drunken” with the blood of the martyrs (Rev. 17:6).
agree with St. Paul that their unbelieving brethren are “enemies” of the gospel (Romans 11:28).
Lura Maiman Beckford, Messianic Jewish spokesperson for the persecuted Messianic Christians of Arad in Israel, e-mailed me: “As persecuted Israelis we appreciate your stand for truth. We are being persecuted relentlessly in this so-called ‘democratic’ country.
