Jerry Nordskog, PublisherRemarks and Prayer

by Gerald Christian Nordskog

This week, Thursday, May 2nd being the 62nd Annual National Day of Prayer observance in America—I look back at the 25 Prayer Breakfasts I chaired on the NDP in the past quarter century:  21 in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles area, and 4 in Ventura, California.   

I also look back at the deterioration of our society in America in the past quarter, even half-century and longer. We are in a sad, sick state of affairs in this nation. 

The USA is in a mess due to its disobedience to the Lord and His Law-Word, the Commandments of God. The Church too has been in decline, but it will rebound, as promised by the Lord, eventually.  It is up to us to get serious about our commitment to our Lord and His admonition to us in The Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20: 

"And Jesus came, and spake unto them, His disciples, saying ‘All power is given unto Me, in heaven, and in earth. Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost, Teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, until the end of the world. Amen."

This, brothers and sisters, as we know, not only means evangelizing, but being and making disciples.  This also not only means in the good ole USA, but all the nations ofthe world, eventually, as the Gospel spreads and Believers do their duty to know, teach, and obey His Commandments and all of God’s Laws. Then the Holy Spirit will bring individuals and nations under Christ’s reign as our King of kings and Lord of lords.  Read On

David Green founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.A Letter from Hobby Lobby Stores CEO

By David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
Suit was filed Oct 15, 2012

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God's word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.

We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government health care mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government fines.  Read On
