    Satan is the accuser of the bretheren (Revelations 12:10). And Jesus is our advocate with the father(1John 2:1). He defends us against satan's accusations. But we have to give Jesus a good case to plead. Jesus said by your words you will be justified or condemned (Matthew 12:37). So by your words either satan will win his case or Jesus will win his case. The Bible says give no place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27). And you can give the devil place by the words of your mouth. That's why Jesus said whatever you bind on earth will be bound...

  • Democrats plead: Don't vote angry

    With unemployment still hovering close to double digits, frustration and dissatisfaction have been running high in the lead-up to the election. That's not been lost on Democratic candidates and surrogates, who, of late, have spent time on the campaign trail putting the electorate on the proverbial couch. "People are angry," former President Bill Clinton said yesterday at a campaign event for Washington state incumbent Sen. Patty Murray. "But when you make a decision when you're mad about anything, not just politics -- there's an 80 percent chance you make a mistake."

    WASHINGTON - Chief executives of 10 major corporations urged Congress on Monday to require limits on greenhouse gases this year, contending voluntary efforts to combat climate change are inadequate.

But the executives and leaders of four major environmental organizations said in a letter to Bush that mandatory emissions caps are needed to reduce the...

    Four Mexicans accused of sneaking across the border pleaded guilty Tuesday under a new state law targeting immigrant smugglers.
