I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, thank You for these actions in the states. We pray for religious freedoms to protected in the United States of America.

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a bill that poses a real and imminent threat to religious freedom protections for all Americans. The deceptively-named “Equality Act” (H.R. 5) now awaits a vote in the Senate, and some states are already bracing for impact, proposing laws that would bolster religious freedom protections for their residents.

To understand why these state measures may be necessary, it’s important to grasp the extent of the damage the Equality Act could inflict on religious liberty.

The Equality Act’s Implications for Religious Liberty

In short, the Equality Act, if passed by the Senate and signed by president, would make sexual orientation and gender identity protected classes under the Civil Rights Act of 1964— a groundbreaking law originally intended to stop racial discrimination. Worst of all, the proposed law specifically states that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) “shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under, a covered title, or provide a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title.”

Here’s what that means. Any organization, business, religious group, or individual who holds certain religious and moral beliefs—for instance, about marriage, gender, or life—could be forced to participate in activities that violate their conscience. In essence, the Equality Act would gut RFRA, a bulwark federal protection that has helped protect and reclaim religious freedom for millions of Americans—including many of First Liberty’s clients—for over a quarter century.

States Move to Protect Religious Liberty for Houses of Worship and People of Faith

With the possibility that the Equality Act could soon be signed into law, individual states are taking steps to provide protection for religious Americans.

At the same time, we cannot forget that attacks on religious freedom aren’t limited to the Equality Act. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has also reminded state and local leaders—as well many Americans like you—that government officials will quickly exploit a crisis as an excuse to trample on our First Freedom.

Multiple states are responding by proposing bills to counteract the possible fallout from the Equality Act, as well as other legislative measures aimed at protecting people of faith and houses of worship in light of pandemic-inspired restrictions and shutdowns of religious services.

What states are considering bills that would counteract the Equality Act? Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Montana, Kentucky, Missouri, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. For specific information, go to First Liberty Institute–click HERE.

The “Equality Act,” will destroy most churches. Religious freedom will be gone if it passes! Pastors need to prepare their members, NOW, to stand against this intrusion on the House of God!! As for my house, we will stand against the “Equality Act!” We will not go to any church that embraces that abominable Act!! We will also get involved at the local, state and federal level of government! There is no room for compromise here at all………NONE!!!

Greetings, shalom

Once again I meet you in mind and spirit, reminding you that God has had dialogue with men all through the holy scriptures,Our Jewish bible

His plan to create man and woman for a purpose was good and he blessed it. This new beginnings with God and man after the great rebellion provoked a well, designed and sophisticated attack to foil andstop God’s plan
What the enemy meant for evil God meant for good.

This attack upon God’s plan by Satan brought judgement, and judgement continue up to this day.
enmity between man and devil, but why the woman pregnancy is one that is associated with Good Bad and the Ugly continue through our life span, as a war that gravitates towards annihilation of our generation.
Have you forgotten God’s plan, does not have a hole, it does not leak, there no room for fallout, gender issues is a question to difile God plan, to question what he has done in creating man. scientist continue to penetrate our genes through science probing for the divine secret of mans existence, the word is very clear how man was created by God, God made man from dust, and woman from the rib of the man,and God made every animal out of the ground.

Did Adam ask God for his, equal, how did God know Adam needed a partner. where my equal,it not among the animals, What’s going here, both God and Adam is at work in the establishment of the foundation that will carry generation to come. The lord did it again,the step by step process of making the woman to partner with Adam. But it was still imperfect,instructions were laid out to the man Adam, that there is only one relationship that must defile all odd to be sustained and to thrive and that is the marriages pattern after God’s pattern for sexual intimacy between a man and a woman, the man is designed to desire the woman all the rest of his life.

Through the making process of both animal and woman, AMONG THE ANIMAL S NO EQUALITY WAS FOUND FOR HIM this cliche dog is replacing the woman is from hell, a dog is not a man equal among the animals he named but the naked woman that was formed from his rib is his equal, he perceive the difference and spoke through his eyes, he saw a naked woman and knew that naked woman was different from the animals that he named, here Adam is co-labouring with the creator
To you who re reading these writings, to us is very clear, stay connected to your body, don’t let anything or anyone defile your body God made us, and the attack that’s here to undo that original purpose cannot succeeded in defacing our unique creations process, what the enemy meant for evil God will turn it around for our good.
This is the pain-staking writings of God Holy Prophet.

So why is every Pastor and church not going to DC,getting on news,radio,writing letters to Newspapers,magazines to let their voices be heard? How many have went,communicated with elected officials regarding this? How many have fully opened their churches and started obeying GODS laws over man’s? CHURCH WE MUST TAKE OUR STAND!!!!!We will answer to GOD for allowing this!

    Lisa, it is because they are unequally yoked to the Government by way of the 501c3. These Pastors don’t want to risk losing their tax exempt status. Do they not realize they are also yoked to the very things that Jesus preached against..Planned Parenthood, Church of Satan etc. It’s time for the church to break away from 501 c3…come out of her!!!!

Dear Heavenly Father we come to you with heavy hearts for our nation who has turned from You and Your holy ways. Please forgive and heal us.
Yes there’s still a remnant and we long to see America return to You, to truly be one nation under God. We pray that the laws of our land will be based upon Your Holy Word, the Bible. Please do not allow our 1st Amendment rights to be taken from us. Raise up Your people to lovingly proclaim Your gospel and Your Words to the lost. Send a Great Awakening and Revival soon. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray! Amen!

God created them male and female according to Genesis 5:2. And that is how it is intended to be forever. Not until deranged minds controlled by satan decide to make it what they want,
But that is the way God created the world and intended it to be so there would be no question and peace in the minds of people in regard to their sexual identity.
Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name, they kingdom come they will be done “on earth as it is in heaven” give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom and the power and they glory FOREVER, Amen.
