The Hamilton Corner provides pertinent insight into the legal, political, and spiritual issues of the day. Tune in for up to date Biblical Worldview commentary that plants a flag for Christ in today’s culture.
“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2 Timothy 3:13 (KJV)
British doctors have been told not to use the word “mother” when referring to pregnant women in case it offends transgender people.
New guidelines issued by the doctors’ trade union, the British Medical Association, to its 160,000 members explained “a large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women. However, there are some intersex men and trans men who may get pregnant. We can be more inclusive by saying ‘pregnant people’ instead of ‘expectant mothers.’”
Once you untether from the LORD there’s no telling how far you may drift.

0:23 - 0:40: People laughed when Trump suggested he might pick Oprah for V.P. Now they want her as president. Oprah preaches “The Secret” - a book which the author admits was inspired by a demon guide.
0:43 - 0:60: Oprah calls herself a “Messenger” but her message is a direct attack on Christ and denies sin.
“I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling.” 1 Timothy 2:8 (ESV)
The Bible is replete with scriptures that instruct men to pray.
Unfortunately, however, prayer meetings across the country are largely populated by women.
If men are to function as the family coverings God ordained us to be we must lead our families in prayer. Instead of waiting for our wives to set the spiritual tone in our homes, we men must lead the way.
As the father goes, so goes the family. As the family goes, so goes the Church. Godly husbands and fathers can turn our nation to Christ.
Seg 1- Romans 8:12-17 The mechanism that creates the "Family in Christ" is adoption
Seg 2- San Bernardino DA is livid that at the release of "Non-violent offender" that resulted in the death of 70 year old Deputy Sheriff
Seg 3- Baltimore beg for more police after severe murder increases since 2015, Not one lawsuit filed in Mississippi since HB 1523
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9 (ESV)
Often people refer to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speeches in excerpts and sound bites. We’d do well, however, to remember these words from the “I Have a Dream” speech:
"In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred."
Our nation is more divided now than ever before in my lifetime. We must be careful not to confuse hatred and bitterness with righteous indignation. One leads toward God’s heart being revealed. The other comes from the evil one.
0:00 - 0:20: 1 Samuel 7:15- 8:5, We are to be careful not to sacrifice our families on the altar of ministry elsewhere.

“Let what you say be simply 'Yes' or 'No'; anything more than this comes from evil.” Matthew 5:37 (ESV)
One company’s employees were absent from the fast food worker driven fight for a $15 dollar minimum wage. That company: In-N-Out Burger.
In-N-Out starts their employees at $10.50 an hour and allows them to earn as much as $120,000 annually. That’s the highest of any fast food chain in the country. They also provide vision, medical dental benefits. Needless to say they have very low turnover.
Merit based pay always produces a better product, greater service and more productive employees.
Did I mention this is a Christian based company?
Iranian Protest: Is There a Spiritual Connection?
Its not by chance that Jesus refers to his Church as “The Body.” Just as it is with our physical bodies every member has a distinct role and function to fulfill.
Unfortunately, in the era of celebrity Christianity we’ve reduced the concept of ministry solely to what occurs in what is often little more than Sunday productions and performances.

Stacy Washington hosts and tackles the issues of the day
President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital came under assault, forcing the U.S. to use its veto power the stop a U.N. Security Council resolution demanding that Washington reverse course and resisting its policy shift.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before, the America, the only nation standing with Israel before the United Nations.
While discussing President Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital MSNBC host Chris Matthews said Southern Christians were,
“crazy with their ideas about Israel, which is I don’t know mythical. They don’t understand the situation over there and how tricky it is ethnically and tribally. They don’t care, because its a religious belief.”
We’ve now learned that Bob Mueller’s Special Counsel investigatory team is full of anti-Trump zealots.
Not least of which is Peter Strzok.
Mueller quietly removed Strzok from the Trump investigation after the Inspector General revealed evidence showing just how deep Strzok’s animus for the President ran.

Guest Host: Stacy Washington sits in for Abraham III on The Hamilton Corner
When you read the David vs. Goliath account in 1 Samuel 17 you’ll notice David never once acknowledges him as giant. He only mentions him as an uncircumcised Philistine who dared to defy the LORD of hosts.
Then, when the battle raged, David doesn’t lag back and wait for Goliath to make the first move. David charged Goliath, sling in hand, armed with full persuasion of God’s faithfulness.
These words were shared between Cleopas and his companion on the 7 mile walk from Jerusalem to Emmaus as Jesus, in resurrected form, used the Hebrew scriptures to reveal himself to them as the Messiah.
There are at least 109 distinct Biblical prophecies the Messiah had to fulfill.
The mathematical probability of such a feat occurring is astoundingly absurd, yet that absurdity is satisfied… in Jesus, the Messiah.
Simeon spoke these words when he met baby Jesus. The Holy Spirit revealed that he would not die until he saw the Messiah. Immediately upon meeting Jesus in the temple, Simeon held Him and worshiped god saying, “Now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your Word, for my eyes have seen your salvation.”
