The Mythology of the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court’s recent decision on prayer at government meetings reminds me that Supreme Court “season” is upon us, and for the next two months or so, we can expect to see the court decide on a variety of cases that can have profound impacts on the lives of citizens and non-citizens alike. The court’s decision in Town of Greece vs. Galloway has produced a lot of commentary on both sides, with much discussion about the dynamics between justices, and how Justice Kennedy must have been in a pro-prayer mood that day, since his decisions appear to be made on a variety of unknowable whims.

Background:  I believe in Jesus AND I think the Old Testament is as valid as the New Testament.   All of the Word was given to guide us to our Heavenly Home through the redemptive work of Jesus on the cross.  I believe that Jesus is coming back and there are signs in the heavens and on the planet about the timing of his return.  The good news is He is coming back.  The bad news is it could get very rough here before His return.  So be ready and seek Him while He may be found.  This post will update you on Signs in the Heavenlies, Tremors on the Earth, and Israel and the Restoration of the Temple, and the Blood of Jesus on the Mercy Seat.

For years, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has placed themselves as the ultimate source for coordination between parents and teachers, ostensibly providing numerous ways in which to help engage parents in their child’s education.  Most parents don’t think twice about joining the PTA – after all, it’s all about the kids.  Or is it?
