If you are as sickened by the infuriating and blaspheming decisions of the Supreme Court and are wondering what God fearing people can do – here it is!
An Ecclesiastical Court will be held at federal court houses in at least 30 cities across this land on Thursday, September 25, 2003, at 11:30am.”
The Central Florida area is invited to participate in front of the George C. Young U.S. Courthouse at 80 North Hughey Ave., Orlando, Florida at 11:30 am on Thursday, September 25, 2003.” There is metered parking available across Hughey Ave. under I-4 and also across Washington St., north of the courthouse.
Pastor Sam Green of Palm Bay Baptist Church will be conducting this Ecclesiastical Court. Please come as a prayerful witness to these federal judges. This courthouse has a lot of glass on the upper floors where the judges’ chambers are and they will surely look out and see our witness there.
Anyone interested in car pooling from the Melbourne/Palm Bay area can meet at Central Baptist Church at 2503 Country Club Road (next to Florida Tech) in Melbourne at 9:00 am. Palm Bay Baptist Church is going to take their bus. If you live closer to Palm Bay Baptist (corner of Emerson and Waco) you can meet there at 9:00 AM. The bus will then go by Central Baptist to pick up people there. Call Meredith Raney at (321)254-5481 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Ecclesiastical Court – Operation Save America
We, the Church of Jesus Christ, do hold the Supreme Court of the United States of America in contempt of the Court of Almighty God. We hold it in contempt of the Court before whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. In so doing, we, by the authority of God’s Word and without reservation, pronounce this court dead to the Law of God, dead to the biblical heritage left to us by our Pilgrim Forefathers and our Founding Fathers, dead to the historical legacy of those who died to make us free, dead to the righteousness that comes from God alone, dead to the Constitution of the United States of America, and dead before the Court of Almighty God. It has spurned its biblical mandate to judge justly. This court has surrendered its constitutional responsibility. It has forfeited all moral authority. Therefore, we hold its decisions no longer relevant or binding upon us, our children, or our nation.“Those who forsake the law praise the wicked” Proverbs 28:4
Behold the Six Charges“When a land falls into the hands of the wicked, He blindfolds its judges. If it is not He, then who is it?” Job 9:24
We cite six Supreme Court Decisions that prove, beyond a reasonable doubt that the Supreme Court of the United States of America has become blind to the Law of God. “So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter. Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. The Lord looked and was displeased that there was no justice.” Isaiah 59:14-15 The lawlessness in our streets, the murder of our children, and the unprecedented violence encompassing our land are judgments from Almighty God Himself, who by simply withholding His hedge of protection allows these catastrophes to occur. Our nation is being turned into hell. Blood is coursing through the hallways of our schools, churches, work places, and streets. Natural disasters have become commonplace. Perversion parades its sin like Sodom as pornography spews its filth through our computers and TVs. Yet, this court persists in codifying evil into law.
FIRST CHARGE: Engle vs. Vitale . The Supreme Court silenced the prayers of our children in the public schools of America. The prayer targeted for destruction stated, * “Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country.” * Since this ruling, untold devastation has come upon our children, our families, our schools, and our nation.
GOD’S RULING: It is written: “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung about his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6)
SECOND CHARGE: Abington vs. Schempp . The Supreme Court removed the Bible from the education of our children in public schools. The knowledge of God was replaced with metal detectors, condoms, drugs, and violence of unprecedented magnitude.
GOD’S RULING: It is written: “You deserted the rock who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth. The Lord saw this and rejected them. In the streets the sword will make them childless. In their homes terror will reign. Young men and young women will perish, infants and gray haired men.” Deuteronomy 32:18-19a, 25. “Hear the word of the Lord, you children of Israel. For the Lord brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land: There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing and lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, they break all restraint, with bloodshed upon bloodshed.” Hosea 4:1-2
THIRD CHARGE: Roe vs. Wade . The Supreme Court removed the humanity and personhood of the unborn. With one stroke of a pen, the laws that once protected the most vulnerable among us were struck down and it became open season to kill precious babies in the wombs of their mothers. As a result, hell has enlarged its mouth to devour one-third of an entire generation of American citizens. America has committed domestic terrorism in the womb, and we are now reaping foreign terrorism in our streets. Our nation is defiled, and the innocent blood of our children cries out to God for vengeance.
GOD’S RULING: It is written, “Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you.” Ezekiel 35:6 “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge “because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.” Hosea 4:6
FOURTH CHARGE: Stone vs. Graham . The Supreme Court stripped the Ten Commandments from the walls of our public classrooms, removing the foundation upon which the moral, legal, and ethical freedoms of America rest. It declared, * “If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments.” *
GOD’S RULING: It is written: “because they had not obeyed My laws but had rejected My decrees” I also gave them over to statutes that were not good and laws they could not live by.” Ezekiel 20:24-25
*FIFTH CHARGE: Planned Parenthood vs. Casey * . The Supreme Court reiterated the lie of the serpent in the Garden (Genesis 3) that man can become as God. It declared that man can determine his own reality, standards, and meanings apart from the objective truth of Almighty God. In a joint majority opinion, Kennedy, O’Connor, and Souter said, * “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning of the universe, and the mystery of human life.” * With this statement the Supreme Court declared itself God, and discarded its historical reliance on a transcendent standard.
Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold lived out this newly created standard. They walked into their high school in Columbine, Colorado and mercilessly murdered 13 of their peers and then committed suicide. Eric printed this statement on the internet before his murderous rampage, “My belief is that if I say something, it goes. I am the law, and if you don’t like it, you die “feel no remorse, no sense of shame.” (Washington Post, April 29th, 1999)
GOD’S RULING: It is written, “Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:28-32
SIXTH CHARGE: Lawrence vs. Texas . The Supreme Court ruled, on June 26, 2003, in Lawrence v. Texas that there is a constitutional right to homosexual sodomy. In one fell swoop, this court threw out God, His Law, over 4,000 years of history, and its own past precedent, to declare sodomy, in all of its perverse forms, a constitutional right in America.
GOD’S RULING: It is written, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22 “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law resist them.” Proverbs 28:4
“See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her – but now murders! Your silver has become dross, your choice wine is diluted with water. Your rulers are rebels, companions of thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widows case does not come before them.”
That America is rapidly approaching her last days on earth was startlingly revealed on June 26, 2003. It is a day that will go down in infamy. Lawrence v. Texas has revealed America’s slow but ever quickening spiral into moral degradation. (read Leviticus 18) She has sunk into a quagmire of filth and debauchery. Like Sodom, Egypt, and the Canaanites before her, America has now embraced sodomy and made it her god.
It would do us well to consider what God has to say about judges: “… Consider carefully what you do, because you are not judging for man but for the Lord … Judge carefully for with the Lord your God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery … you are to warn them not to sin against the Lord, otherwise His wrath will come on you and your brothers.” 2 Chronicles 19: 6-10
The Supreme Court of the United States of America has sinned against God in its rendering of these six decisions! Far from warning us not to sin against God and His Law, it has informed us with “new enlightenment” from a “living” Constitution that sodomy, like abortion before it, is now a good thing. This is high treason against both God and this nation.
Yes, the Supreme Court of the United States of America has betrayed our God, our nation, our people, our children, and has invited the wrath of Almighty God to come upon us – all of us!

Just what is Calvinism?
Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?
This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy
Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.
Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.
Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism
Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner
The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.
Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.
Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Special Two-Disc Set!
After 40 years of intense study and world-wide ministry, Dr. Francis Schaeffer completed his crowning work of scholarship – to present profound truths in simple film language. Dr. Schaeffer’s brilliant analysis of the past and predictions for current trends have proven so uncannily accurate that this amazing series still feels contemporary almost three decades after its initial release. Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.
Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.
