Georgia Church Helps Student Members Receive $4.3 Million in College Scholarships

A Georgia church helped 50 of its recent high school graduates earn $4.3 million in scholarships by mentoring and providing guidance to the students through their education ministry.

Turner Chapel AME in Marietta held a special service to honor the group, who were accepted to a combined 125 colleges and received college tuition assistance through private scholarships, institutional, merit and need-based aid.

Students come from economic backgrounds that “span the range of families with little to no financial resources to those with enough to pay some of their college costs. However, even the most affluent families find a $60,000 annual price tab out of reach without taking out loans,” Mychal Wynn, leader of the education ministry told The Christian Post.

Both Wynn and his wife, Nina, co-lead the program at Turner Chapel with the purpose of helping students within their congregation search for scholarships and equip them with the skills needed to earn financial assistance.

Prior to beginning the education ministry, the Wynn’s and the church had raised $3,000 for college scholarships. However, once they approached their senior pastor in 2007, the Rev. Kenneth Marcus, to begin the program, they saw how students benefited from their assistance after they began earning scholarships.

“Supporting students and families is the work of the church.Guiding students into college, debt free, allows families to continue to have the financial resources to support the work of the church and it’s various outreach ministries,” said Wynn.

Joining the Wynn’s in their work is youth pastor Rev. Don Ezell, who assists student members with their resumes, essay writing, tutoring and preparing for state issued standardized tests.

“We are excited to have the ability to cultivate a culture of academic excellence among our youth … We believe that it is the responsibility of the faith community to support student achievement,” Ezell told CP.

Part of that culture also includes having college church members return on their breaks to help other students, or to mentor other Turner Chapel AME students, as some are the first in their family to attend college and are oftentimes unaware of educational resources.

Aside from offering help to students because its the church’s responsibility, Wynn says they do it because school counselors are often overwhelmed with the number of students they are responsible for and cannot in each case provide personalized guidance.

“Churches have a tremendous knowledge base to draw from, such as retired educators, human resource professionals, college students, counselors, and high performing students,” said Wynn, whose church has 6,000 members. “All such resources can be used to assist with resumes, essays, selecting high school classes, identifying summer programs, tutoring, leadership, and performing community service.”

He added, “Closing the college knowledge gap and assisting in making the right college match are continuing struggles for school districts. Our work supports the intentions of school districts, brings more families with children into the church … and contributes to the spiritual, intellectual, and leadership development of youth.”

She Refused Brain Surgery to Protect Her Unborn Baby and Gave Birth in a Coma

Melissa Carleton, 39 is a modern-day hero. Her dreams of becoming a mother finally came true even if she wasn’t awake and aware when she gave birth to her adorable baby boy.

Carleton was so excited to be a first-time mom she could hardly contain herself. But sadly, just 10 weeks before her baby boy was due to arrive, Melissa suddenly slipped into a coma and has not been able to wake up since. Now that her son has been born, Melissa’s husband Brian Lande hopes his wife will wake up and finally be able to hold her son.

On Thursday, Melissa welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world via c-section even though she was 10 weeks into a coma.

“[Melissa]’s wanted to have a child for years,” Melissa’s father, John Farrell, told ABC News after his grandson was born. “Today, I can’t begin to tell you how happy we are. It’s indescribable.”

Carleton’s medical woes began earlier this year. She started to have unusual headaches after becoming pregnant. Doctors discovered a massive, benign tumor in her brain during her second trimester.

Carleton, a marriage and family therapist, wanted to put off brain surgery until after her son was born, but when she had a seizure in March, she was rushed into the operating room. Doctors successfully removed the mass, but the seizure left the 39-year-old in a coma. She hasn’t been fully conscious since March 11.

Help the family by going here.

From the ABC News story:

John Farrell’s pregnant daughter went into a coma 10 weeks ago, but today it’s not hard for him to be joyful. Today, he became a grandfather.

“She’s wanted to have a child for years,” he told ABC News. “Today, I can’t begin to tell you how happy we are. It’s indescribable.”

Carleton’s husband, Brian Lande, has barely left her side, according to ABC affiliate KFSN-TV.

“I know that being able to love this little guy is going to be a wonderful experience, but I also know it’s going to be very hard for me to know that I am going to be the one to hold this baby first,” Lande told KFSN-TV before the birth.

Although Carleton is in a coma, she’s able to open her eyes and squeeze her family members’ hands, Farrell said. And Thursday morning, just before surgery to give birth to her son, she was the most awake Farrell has seen her in weeks.

“In a few tender moments, she reached out to Brian, took his cheek, pulled his cheek down to her face and held it there,” Farrell said. “It was the first time she had hugged Brian since this trauma happened.”

The First Mark of God’s Judgment on America

The Removal of His Presence and His Hand of Blessing

At the dedication of the temple, Solomon began his prayer for God’s mercy by saying, “…may You hear the supplications of Your servant and of Your people Israel, when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and when You hear, forgive (II Chronicles 6:21). Solomon anticipated that he and the nation would sin.  He understood that sin, whether personal or national, would break fellowship with God, separating them from His power and blessing. No doubt he had heard the story of God removing His presence and blessing from King Saul after his sin, and of Samson experiencing God’s judgment due to his sin. Even the entire nation of Israel, after the big victory at Jericho, suffered defeat at the hand of the small city Ai because of sin in their midst. 

Today, many people reject the idea of God’s sovereign authority to judge individuals or nations; yet, they cherish the idea of His blessing. Most would agree that God’s hand of blessing was on America until more recent years, but they hesitate to identify any calamity as God’s judgment.

Unfortunately, even many pastors are reluctant to declare that God’s hand of judgment is on America.

Jesus rebuked the religious leaders of His day for not understanding the ‘signs of the time’ (Luke 12:56). Is He not equally disturbed when we shut our eyes to His obvious withdrawal of blessings and protection over our country? 

God desires to bless the nation that fears Him –“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD” (Psalm 33:12)! To those who trust in Him, He has promised to be a ‘refuge and strength’ and never to forsake them. He certainly was the strength of our nation, and His presence with us was felt even by our enemies. But, when a nation turns its back on Him and walks in its own strength, He withdraws His presence, removes His hand of blessing and judges it. Friends, do we honestly believe that God is blessing America today? Would He be just if He did? After 9/11, do we honestly believe that the hedge of protection around this nation remains intact? The removal of God’s blessing and His presence is scary – and it is only the first indication that God’s judgment is on us. The next six marks are even more obvious.

This is the second in an eight part series, “Can We Know if God’s Judgment is on America? – The Background to Understanding God’s Promise in II Chronicles 7:14”. 

Your Tax Dollars Pay for Child Rape, Sex Trafficking and Fraud at Planned Parenthood

Today, Lila Rose and the Live Action team are launching a new comprehensive campaign, “Lies, Corruption, and Scandal: Six Years of Exposing Planned Parenthood.”

Beginning today, Live Action will hand-deliver a packet to every U.S. congressman and senator that includes a cover letter  providing an overview of Live Action’s investigative findings against Planned Parenthood over the course of six years, and a  report detailing Planned Parenthood’s expansive malfeasance.

At the same time Live Action is conducting a public campaign by unveiling a new website, PlannedParenthoodExposed.com, launching a petition drive, and releasing a video that gives a truly shocking six minute synopsis of Live Action’s six years of undercover investigations of the United States’ largest abortion corporation.

Those findings include:

Here is that video. Each of Live Action’s undercover investigations has been shocking in and of itself. But ultimately each has revealed only a sliver of Planned Parenthood’s evil underbelly.

Put together, Live Action’s findings are truly unbelievable, particularly when one takes into consideration the fact that taxpayers hand Planned Parenthood over half a billion dollars EVERY YEAR – $1.4+ million A DAY.

Live Action is urging our legislators to halt funding of Planned Parenthood.

I mean, really. Fund an organization that is willing to cover up the statutory rape of a 13-yr-old by a 31-yr-old? That is “excited” to take donations specifically to abort black babies? That lies to vulnerable women about child development? That aids and abets child sex traffickers, whose victims may also have been illegally smuggled into the United States? That engages in false advertising (at the highest levels) and fraud? That is willing to commit sex-selective abortions of baby girls, just because they are girls? That lies to prospective patients about the safety of their clinics? That lobbies in favor of infanticide?

Seriously, what is to like about Planned Parenthood, not loathe?

The only explanation for a politician to support taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood is corruption – mutual back-scratching.

American Pastors Network Encourages Pastors to Preach on Marriage, as Oregon and PA Strike Down Marriage Protection Acts

PHILADELPHIA—The American Pastors Network (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.netis encouraging pastors around the country and throughout the nation to preach on marriage on June 1 and in the coming weeks, in the wake of two judges striking down marriage defense acts in Pennsylvania and Oregon, respectively. Same-sex marriage is now legal in 19 states in the union and the District of Columbia.

APN president and former Pennsylvania state legislator Sam Rohrer, who also serves as president of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN, www.papastros.net), a state chapter affiliate of APN, says the organization is calling on pastors to take a stand in the face of this flagrant attack on God’s law and our constitutional liberties.

“Last week, two federal judges mocked the law of God and declared the will of the people irrelevant by striking down two states’ prohibitions against same-sex marriage,” Rohrer said. “In one case, the judge dared to go so far as to say that it’s time to ‘discard’ such laws ‘into the ash heap of history.’ This flagrant and arrogant attack on God-ordained marriage and on the freedom of all Americans demands a response.

“These rulings have serious implications. In each case, the judges appointed themselves the power to usurp the authority of both Moral Law and Civil Law: Moral Law by thinking themselves superior to God in declaring God’s definition of marriage and the family null and void and Civil Law by disregarding the Constitutional authority of individual states to pass laws reflecting the will of the people.”

APN is urging pastors to “Stand in the Gap for Truth” as America is in the throes of a severe moral crisis.

“This week’s rulings are, of course, not isolated instances,” Rohrer continued. “Instead, they are pivotal cogs in a massive effort to declare God’s definition of marriage unconstitutional and to censor individuals and states that dare to proclaim belief in God-ordained marriage.  Our nation will not escape judgment simply because we are ‘America.’ God will not be mocked, and these are the sins that God will judge. Church walls will offer no protection if our freedoms are obliterated. We pray that pastors across America will boldly speak truth in a culture that rejects it.”

APN is the largest national network of pastors who believe in the authority of Scripture, boldly preach the whole counsel of God with a disciplined application of a biblical worldview to matters of public policy, are building a permanent infrastructure of biblically faithful pastors and lay leaders, and are mobilizing congregations to participate in the political process on a non-partisan basis.

By growing state chapters who will support the mission, APN is building a nationwide, permanent infrastructure of like-minded pastors who:

  1. Affirm the authority of scripture
  2. Take seriously Jesus’ command to be “salt and light” to the culture
  3. Want to encourage informed Christian thinking about contemporary social issues
  4. Want to examine public policy issues without politicizing their pulpits, using well-prepared teaching and preaching resources
  5. Want to engage their congregations in taking part in our political process on a non-partisan basis.

Current resources offered by APN include an extensive online resource library, offering pastors many free resources on issues such as traditional marriage, along with topics ranging from economics and education to abortion and homosexuality. APN also airs several “Stand in the Gap” radio features, including a daily “Stand in the Gap Minute” addressing Biblical and cultural challenges facing pastors as well as the one-hour “Stand in the Gap Weekend,” which airs sermons by APN pastors. The upcoming “Stand in the Gap Freedom Focus” will be a one-hour daily program presenting national and international news and analysis.

The American Pastors Network has a mission to identify, encourage, equip, educate and network pastors and church members to “Stand in the Gap for Truth” across the nation while providing Bible-based and constitutionally consistent analysis and recommendations on matters of public policy. APNis the largest, national network of pastors who believe in the authority of scripture, who boldly preach the whole counsel of God with a disciplined application of a biblical worldview to public policy, and who are building a permanent infrastructure of biblically faithful pastors and lay leaders and mobilizing congregations to participate in the political process.

Just One-Fourth of Americans Want Abortion Legal for Any Reason

Gallup’s annual survey of American attitudes about abortion shows the abortion debate is as divided as ever, but it continues to show that just one-fourth of Americans agree with Planned Parenthood and President Barack Obama, that all abortions should be legal any time for any reason.

“Americans remain divided on the abortion issue, with 47% of U.S. adults describing their views as “pro-choice” and 46% as “pro-life,” continuing a pattern seen since 2010,” Gallup said — as the latest poll shows the debate on abortion within the margin of error.

The opinion on abortion has ebbed and flowed over the years in the Gallup survey, as the pro-abortion side fared better and the debate on partial-birth abortions shifted the views back towards the pro-life side in the years following.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life,told LifeNews he found good news in the survey.

“The new Gallup poll on abortion, released today, and the Politico poll released earlier this week contain much good news for our nation’s unborn because they show support for additional measures to protect babies in the womb,” he said.

He continued: “The Gallup poll shows that 50 percent of Americans want some restrictions on abortion, with 21 percent of those saying it should be illegal in all circumstances. These are good numbers. Half of all Americans clearly understand that abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy is wrong. It gives me hope that, at the very least, we will soon be able to protect babies from the brutality of a late-term abortion.”

Father Pavone noted that both polls showed a minority of Americans – 28 percent in the Gallup poll and 19 percent in Politico survey — favoring legal abortion at any time and for any reason.

“These findings are consistent with what we have seen for many years,” Father Pavone said. “Most Americans reject most abortions. It is simply false to say that most Americans support Roe v. Wade, because that decision brought us the extreme policy of abortion on demand, which most of the public rejects.”

Gallup’s poll also showed the same regional difference on abortion as before and it indicates women support abortion more than men and younger Americans are more supportive of abortion  — although other polls have arrived at different results.

The Gallup poll also showed most Americans do not identify with abortion on demand as supported by Obama and the abortion industry.

“A second long-term Gallup trend, this one measuring Americans’ views on the extent to which abortion should be legal, finds 50% saying abortion should be “legal only under certain circumstances,” or in other words, favoring limited abortion rights. This stance has prevailed since 1975. However, a combined 49% of Americans takes a more hardline position, including 28% saying abortion should be legal in all circumstances and 21% believing it should be illegal in all circumstances,” Gallup notes.

Gallup also found the percentage of Americans who say abortion is an important election issue is on the rise and those who say it is not an important issue have fallen.

As has been the case for some time, voter intensity is on the pro-life side as pro-life voters are more likely to only consider candidates who share their pro-life views.

“In God We Trust”–Added To Wall Behind House Speaker’s Podium!

Every other Thursday on our daily radio program, “Freedom Focus,” we are privileged to have as our guest Attorney David New (a Constitutional attorney from Washington, DC). His many years of litigation and practice uniquely equip him for providing more than insightful perspectives on all that is currently happening in our nation.

Today, in a discussion regarding the Pledge of Allegiance (a case in Pennsylvania where state justices ruled that “under God” does NOT violate the law), David mentioned an interesting point that I’d never noted. On the wall behind the U.S. House of Representatives podium, the place from which every president gives his State of the Union address, are the words “In God We Trust” in gold lettering. My incorrect assumption was that those words had LONG been on that wall. However, Attorney New made the point that those words were not added to the wall until 1962.

Here’s the story! When the United States Supreme Court issued their ruling removing prayer from public school, the U.S. Congress disagreed with their decision and made their protest known by adding to the wall in the House chamber those sacred words, “In God We Trust.” The High Court decision to remove prayer was made in June. The following September, House Resolution 740 was passed, making possible the display of “In God We Trust” in the chamber. The first president to speak from that historic podium, with “In God We Trust” emblazoned behind him, was John F. Kennedy. Only one time was he privileged to deliver a State of the Union address from that sacred spot! As the world now knows, he was tragically gunned down in Dallas the following November!

So, a number of observations need to be made. In 1962, the “separation of powers” dispute between the Judicial Branch and the Legislative Branch was on vivid display! As well, it was the right of the Legislative arm of our government to so vehemently disagree with a Supreme Court decision that they did so in a very public and perpetual way! Most importantly, the U.S. Congress in 1962 did something from which we are reaping great benefit today! They unequivocally declared the TRUTH–for all the world, including the God of heaven, to see–that we are a nation founded upon, and dependent on, the Sovereign God of the Universe!!!

May God grant the current crop of Congressmen and Senators the same courage to clearly decree that we ARE a people who believe in, and cry out to, God for answers to the multiplicity of problems that currently afflict us! Most of all, may we desperately seek His face for forgiveness for the many personal and public offenses committed against Him and His Holy Word! Never may it be said of America, that we depend on anyone, or anything, else than the True and Living God!

Obama Administration’s Silence on Pregnant Christian Woman Sentenced to Death is Stunning

The President’s team can hardly afford another scandal, but that’s exactly what they’ll have on their hands if the U.S. State Department insists on ignoring the plight of an American family in Sudan.

For three months, a young Christian wife — now almost eight and a half months pregnant — has been shackled in a Sudanese prison on death row. Authorities, who refuse to recognize her marriage to a Christian man, have sentenced her to 100 lashes for adultery and execution for her faith.

As if that weren’t horrifying enough, her stateside husband, Daniel Wani, an American citizen, says their 20-month-old toddler is behind bars with her, enduring unspeakable horrors at the hands of the oppressive Sudanese. Her frantic husband, who continues to plead with the U.S. Embassy for help, flew from New England to Khartoum to visit his wife, Meriam Ibrahim — and was beside himself to find her bound up and swollen. For now, authorities refuse to release his son to Daniel, because of his faith. Although the court gave Meriam days to recant her Christianity, she refused, saying, “I am a Christian, and I will remain a Christian.”

And while the court does allow pregnant women to give birth before their hanging, the international community is pressing to overturn the verdict.

SIGN THE PETITION! Save Meriam Ibrahim, Don’t Hang her to Death for Her Faith

Unfortunately for Daniel, his home country has barely lifted a finger to help the family, saying only that it was “disturbed” by the case. Yesterday, in a shocking exchange with CNSNews.com, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki showed the absolute indifference of the Obama administration toward this family’s nightmare. Asked if Daniel was in fact a U.S. citizen, Psaki told CNSNews, “Typically we don’t confirm those type of details, but I’m happy to check and see if there’s more to share.”

“You don’t know whether that little boy in prison is a U.S. citizen?” CNS fired back.

“I don’t have any more details to share,” Psaki answered.

One of the more jaw-dropping parts of the family’s story is that the U.S. embassy had demanded a DNA test to prove Daniel was a father. He agreed, even offering wedding documents and birth certificates, but said the American Embassy in Sudan still “did not help me.” CNSNews followed up with Psaki, asking, “Did the embassy in Khartoum ask Mr. Wani to provide DNA evidence that that was his son?” Again, the State Department shrugged it off, replying that they’d be “happy to check and see if there’s more to share.” “So, as of this moment,” the reporter pressed, “the U.S. government does not know whether that 20-month-old boy in prison in Sudan is an American citizen imprisoned because he’s a Christian?” — to which Psaki said, “I think I’ve addressed your questions…” “My wife,” Daniel insisted, “was never a Muslim.”

Unfortunately, it’s been like pulling teeth to get the U.S. involved in international religious liberty crises. It took years to get Boko Haram classified as a terror group for slaughtering Christians. Pastor Saeed Abedini is still being brutalized in an Iranian prison. And now this. “I’m just praying for God. He can do a miracle,” said Daniel’s brother.

For now, it looks like that miracle might have to come from Congress. Infuriated by Secretary John Kerry’s inaction, at least two senators, Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) are calling on the State Department to intervene and grant the family political asylum. “We write to urge your full attention to the outrageous Sudanese court ruling that sentenced Meriam Yahya Ibrahim Ishag to death by hanging for her religious beliefs. We request your immediate action and full diplomatic engagement to offer Meriam political asylum and to secure her and her son’s safe release.” The duo also took the opportunity to highlight the vacancy for an Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom — a post that could help prevent, if not alleviate, conflicts like this one.

… And He Shall Have Them in Derision.

On May 20, 2014, US District Judge John E. Jones III, in his official ruling on the lawsuit against the Pennsylvania Marriage Law, exhibited great satisfaction in making Pennsylvania the next in line to declare the historical definition of marriage unconstitutional. His exact words were, “Today, certain citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are not guaranteed the right to marry the person they love.…”  He went on to say, ‘We now join the twelve federal district courts across the country which, when confronted with these inequities in their own states, have concluded that all couples deserve equal dignity in the realm of civil marriage.”  As he proceeded to justify his decision, he quoted phrases from traditional wedding vows such as: ‘for better, for worse’, ‘for richer, for poorer’, ‘in sickness and in health’, ‘till death do us part’.  Not unexpectedly, he omitted any reference to God – the author of marriage. He went on to diminish the value of the traditional family unit of a father, mother and children, and he ignored the historical and societal facts which demonstrate the superiority and stability of a father and mother in the home.

In the concluding sentence of the ruling, we find the most obvious proof of the audacity of this judge and others who seemingly want to rewrite God’s laws and history itself.  The ruling states, “We are a better people than these laws represent, and it’s time to discard them into the ash heap of history.” My friends, when I read this arrogant statement, a verse in Psalm Chapter 2 came to mind: “Why do the heathen rage and people imagine a vain thing? The authorities of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel against the LORD… saying, Let us throw off these moral constraints placed upon us by God. But, He that sits in the heavens shall laugh and have them in derision.” No judge, no king, no President, no Governor, shall cast God’s laws and His standards into the ‘ash heap of history’ without grave consequence. Wake up, America. Wake up, American Christian.

Pennsylvania Pastors Network Says Decision Undermines States’ Constitutional Rights and Goes Against God’s Law for Marriage

PHILADELPHIA—A Federal judge this afternoon struck down Pennsylvania’s Defense of Marriage Act—deciding that same-sex marriage will no longer be banned in the state.

Judge John Jones III ruled to strike down the Act in the case of Whitewood v. Wolf, which was filed last summer in U.S. District Court in the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

“In a continuing trend of federal judicial activism, the court has arrogantly assumed the right to supersede the constitutional right of the states,” said Sam Rohrer, President of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN, www.papastors.net) and the American Pastors Network (APN, www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net).  “This should scare anyone who loves freedom because by its action, the federal court has overruling the constitutional right of the states to determine this issue or any other issues for themselves.

“While this case specifically concerned marriage, one thing is for sure: God hasn’t changed His definition of marriage, and the court has no more right to change His definition than it has to overturn the legitimate right of the states to do what Pennsylvania did in passing a law upholding marriage between one man and one woman. Today’s decision ought to scare anyone who enjoys freedom, because now we have a system in which the federal court has clearly says it doesn’t care what the law is; it’s going to do its own thing. There is a word for this type of system: tyranny.”

The decision was left to the judge after Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett and his administration and the 21 same-sex couples bringing the suit agreed not to go to trial. The lawsuit alleged that the Defense of Marriage Act and the subsequent refusal to marry lesbian and gay couples or recognize their out-of-state marriages violates the fundamental right to marry as well as the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
