An online guest book is available at: www.austinfuneralchap el. tom ......... _ .... ......... .... !ii: Of late it just seems there has been a flood of negative stories in the news related to Christian beliefs and practices. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Jesus, when speaking of our days, prophesied, "ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake" (Matthew 24:9). Consider some of the more recent attacks on Christianity. "Fox and Friends" reported that Charlotte mayor Anthony Foxx decided to forgo this year's "National Day of Prayer", in favor of "The National Day of Reason"; citing in his proclamation: "The application of reason more than any other means, has proven to offer hope for human survival on earth" 5/2/13). Then we have the WND story- "Pentagon Moves to Punish Christian Evangelism in Military". If this change is enacted troops and chaplains could face court martial as "enemies of the state" (5/2/13). "Stakellbeck on Terror" (4/17/13) reported on "Those 'hateful' evangelical extremists". According to Erick Stakelbeck during a recent US army reservist training briefing in Pennsylvania an army instructor used a power point presentation, on which one slide listed potential problem groups, which he linked to religious extremism. Topping the list was evangelical Christians. Of course there is the increasing push to silence anyone who doesn't accept homosexuality as proper behavior. Traditional marriage has come under fire, as has the Boy Scouts, and more recently professional sports, with the push for athletes to announce this as their sexual preference (as did one Boston Celtic basketball player this past week). What is the answer to a world in which "evil is called good and good is called evil"? The answer is found in another of Isaiah's statements - "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him" (5:20; 59:19). by pastor leroy aufenkamp Senior Meals Menu On Page 8 We have several "Whimsical Wednesday" presentations scheduled: April 24 Kameron Dahl, Safari In Africa; May 1 Kallie Christenson from Pembina County Public Health; May 22 Samantha Lahman NDSU Extension, Patio Gardening; May 29 Rae Ann Johnson, Family Caregiver Support Program.
