The Door Is Closing

October 29, 2011 Comments off

For the ministry of Yahweh and Christ, our Grand Creator and Loving Savior, comes the time in which one door closes while another door opens. Established in 2005 and under the guidance of Yahweh’s holy angels for the purpose of bringing Yahweh’s Light of Truth to Mankind in these End Times, we have now completed our work in the 10th month, ten representing Completion, of the year 2011.

The nourishment that has been freely and graciously given by our Creator for this final and pre-Armageddon generation can be found via the many links listed on our website homepage www.LightofLifeMinistry.com, Facebook Page and on each of our blogs. It remains as a guiding light for those who continue to seek Truth so that it might be found. It is all that will be available in these final days prior to the Rapture and then, Armageddon in which Yahweh’s elite holy angelic warriors, the Lions of Zion will invade, execute those of evil mankind that remain and remove all traces of Dawn Lucifer Satan the Devil’s evil imprint upon this world.

For many, the door to deliverance, salvation and eternal life is closing and there will be no other door that then opens for them. May Yahweh and Christ lead you to Truth and may that Truth set you free. In the name of Christ Jesus our loving Savior and vindicator of righteous rule we pray, Amen Father Yahweh.

John 8:32 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Obama’s Lawyers Seek to Remove Employment Exceptions for Religious Organizations

October 5, 2011 1 comment

The United States Department of Justice is about to create a great deal of controversy.

Officials are planning to ask the Supreme Court to throw out long-standing legal precedent that protects religious organizations from governmental regulations and intrusions.

Lawyers will present their oral arguments to the Supreme Court on Wednesday in “Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.“ Religion News Service has dubbed this case ”one of the most important church-state cases in years,” thus this move by the Justice Department will surely be highly debated.

The case surrounds Cheryl Perich, who taught both religion and a secular subject at the Hoasanna-Tabor school in Michigan until 2004. It was during that year that she was diagnosed with a sleep disorder, which required that she take a few months off of work. The Lutheran congregation hired another teacher to serve as her replacement and they asked Perich to resign.

At this point, a doctor had given her permission to return to work. But considering the woman‘s illness and the church’s attempt to replace her, she ended up threatening to launch a lawsuit and the congregation subsequently voted to let her go. After she was replaced, Perich did inevitably sue the school under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The church‘s argument was that her job wasn’t covered under employment law, seeing as the position was at a religious institution, which is shielded from traditional federal employment regulations. Although she lost the first court battle in 2004, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (Cincinnati) subsequently ruled in her favor. Religion News Service sets up the questions surrounding the legal debate:

The question before the justices concerns the “ministerial exception,” a 40-year-old legal doctrine that protects churches and other religious institutions from government interference in their employment decisions.

Few would dispute that a religious congregation should be unfettered when it chooses to hire or fire clergy. But what about other church employees?

The government appears poised to side with Perich. In a legal brief, which was already submitted to the Supreme Court, the Obama administration seeks an elimination of the ministerial exemption. The document, which was written by Solicitor General Donald Verilli and Thomas Perez (head of the civil rights division), says, ”The Establishment Clause … provides no support for a categorical ministerial exception that would bar adjudication of this case.”

Interestingly, the administration argues that even if the court does, indeed, reaffirm the exception, it should not apply to teachers in religious schools. “Plaintiffs in that category should be able to proceed with their claims, subject to careful trial management by the district courts and appropriate sensitivity to [church-state] entanglement concerns,” the brief reads. – The Blaze
