“The Story of Liberty” hosted by John Bona Part 2 of “Live from Israel.” In this episode we travel to the Garden of Gethsemane and the Garden Tomb. John Bona also interviews a very interesting tour guide from England who has dedicated his life to the Garden Tomb. Live from Israel is our special radio broadcast from the Holy Land. I was travelling with Matt Staver, founder and president of Liberty Counsel. Two millennia have passed since Christ was born in Bethlehem, the event that marks the start of the Christian era. For over two thousand years people’s from all over the world have been coming to Israel, to visit the sacred places where Christ preached His Gospel. They travel to the city of Jerusalem where we start our pilgrimage to discover the Holy Land and understand the Scriptures better. We will be reading passages at several sacred sites connected with them. If you have had the privilege of visiting Israel this radio program can help you relive those wonderful days. Its also our prayer for those unable to visit Israel to date, the land where Christ the Lord chose to live His life, can get to know it better through this special radio program. May this program bring joy and understanding to many.

We took a train from Sevilla to Cordoba for a day.

The highlight of Cordoba is La Mezquita, or The Great Mosque of Cordoba. On this site, there’s been a Roman temple, Christian Visigoth church (600 AD), Islamic mosque, and a Roman Catholic cathedral of early Baroque style.

Cordoba (Cordova) was medieval Europe’s center of learning and culture, and rivaled Baghdad and Constantinople in population. (~ 950 AD)

Zondervan Publishing Acquires David Brody?s First Book ?The Teavangelicals: The Inside Story of How Evangelicals, the Tea Party, and Presidential Contenders are Trying to Take Back America?

Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) August 09, 2011

With the legendary Iowa Straw Poll taking place later this month (August 13), Zondervan is proud to announce it has acquired CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody?s new book, ?The Teavangelicals: The Inside Story of How Evangelicals, the Tea Party, and Presidential Contenders are Trying to Take Back America.?

Brody, a respected journalist with a twenty-five year, Emmy-winning career in television, takes the reader behind the scenes in Washington and throughout the country where he discovers:

????Teavangelicals: A new, emerging political force that is plotting strategy at this very moment to reclaim America
????The Tea Party-Evangelical Christian relationship: Why the mainstream media continues to portray Evangelicals as a threat to the Tea Party Movement, and why the mainstream media continues to get it wrong.
????More than half of Americans who identify themselves as part of the Tea Party identify themselves as born-again Christians
????The ?nerve center? of this powerful new movement is far, far away from Washington, DC in the Atlanta suburb of Duluth, GA. Brody gets inside and reveals all.
????Why Evangelicals ARE critical to the success of the Tea Party.

?If you remove fiscally conservative evangelical Christians from the Tea Party movement, you?re left with half a loaf. This book takes the reader on a behind the scenes adventure guaranteed to explore and reveal the evangelical tentacles that permeate the movement,? Brody says.

David Brody appears on Christian Broadcasting Network?s The 700 Club as the Chief Political Correspondent. He also regularly appears on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, C-SPAN and NPR. The New York Times declares, ?Mr. Brody occupies a position of influence,? and his analysis has, ?become required reading for political insiders.?

A letter from America – To the Muslims of the World

Yesterday we elected an American of African origin, Barak Obama, as America’s next President to hold indisputably the world’s most powerful office. While we voted him in we knew his middle name, Hussain, and his Muslim roots on his father’s side.
This is what America truly is: a land of opportunities, of fair-play, of justice. America offers equal opportunities for everyone to encash by the dint of his merit. A land where the rule of law prevails, where the media and the judiciary are independent; where governance is pretty transparent. You would not have missed that a vast majority of Americans, despite their terrible memories of the horrid carnage of 9/11, rose to cast off temptations and apprehensions of religion, race and color. Notice that even Obama’s opponent, John McCain, never let his racial or family background be the subject of public discourse.

Sure, some of you have felt with justification that US policies at times hurt your interests, such as in the Middle East. You have been enraged at the invasion of Iraq, by some of our missiles mistakenly targeting innocents in Sudan and Afghanistan. Many of us have felt outraged, too, and came out spontaneously on the roads protesting such policies. We organized massive public rallies against Iraq war. The incumbent President’s approval ratings have fallen to a record low.

Very erroneously, however, an impression has been created that America is against Muslims and Islam. By electing the son of a Muslim – and that, too, when we are being targeted by mindless terrorism by people like Al Qaeda in the name of Muslims – we have proved this impression as totally misconceived.

Please remember that there is a significant population of Muslims in America that came here, like many do, in hope and faith. Today they live here in peace and comfort, dignity and pride. And an ever increasing number of people from almost every Muslim nation of the world are keen to come and settle down here. They wouldn’t do so if America were all evil.

America respects Islam as one of the greatest world religions and recognizes the tremendous contribution Islamic civilizations made to our planet. The same way the world recognizes the significant contribution America and Americans make to the world today through their pioneering and painstaking work in science, technology, medicines and through their significant material contribution to UN and other global agencies.

As America inaugurates Barak Hussain Obama as its new President let’s begin a new chapter in the history of our planet and let us both start afresh on a footing of mutual trust and respect. Let the rule of law prevail everywhere, let human dignity, fair-play and justice reign supreme. Let us both respect diversity and honorably tolerate dissent. Let peace be the new weapon; not suicide bombers, nor hydrogen and cluster bombs, not missiles and landmines.

Let us both unite to hunt out the enemies of peace and the preachers of hate, let us hound out terrorists from our midst. Let us put an end to violence of all forms, whether by individuals, groups or the states. Let us in this 21st century together weed out hunger, disease and poverty from our planet. Let us prepare to explore the outer space and to probe other life forms out there. Let us in peace, trust and cooperation set higher goals worthy of the modern humans.

He’s in China, I’m in America; can this work? He wants me to travel to China to meet him. I won’t do that.

We met on a Christian Mingle site. He started in with the love talk fairly quick. He was calling and when it came him wanting to meet in person, he did not want to come to America. He said travel would be easier for me because he would have to request a visa from his country, South Africa. Now, he never calls me and we IM but, I do not really want to be bothered with being emotionally enthraled with someone so far away. I am a woman and feel safer if he were to come here. Another thing is that he wants me to stay at his apartment; I feel that any person traveling that far to meet a stranger should have their own space. Meaning, stay at a hotel. He disappeared for 4 days a few weeks ago and I was upset because he just did not think about how I would feel. He did not see why I was upset. He said he was busy but, if he did not make time in a busy situation by typing a message, what would I expect from him all the way in China?
