Matthew 6:1-18 – What Constitutes Godly Righteousness?

Most of you know this but it bears remembering that chapter and verse designations are man-made.  They were placed throughout the text of the Bible as a means to navigate through the Bible.  In many cases they do make a clean break in the thoughts of the authors.  In the Sermon on the Mount however, this is not the case.

Chapter 6 continues the explanation of Jesus on what constitutes true righteousness.  He has contrasted true righteousness from false righteousness by using the religious leaders of His day.

Jesus makes the point in this chapter that what people do is a direct result of the righteousness they possess – whether their own, or the righteousness God gives us through faith in Jesus Christ.

That was certainly the intent behind what He said in 5:17-20.  Up till that point Jesus had taught the people how godly righteousness was first of all apprehended and secondly how it was manifested.  In that passage verse 20 is a pivotal verse in helping us understand exactly what Jesus was saying.

Christ-less Conservatism – Coach Dave Daubenmire

America is a mess and it is getting messier every day. If you think I am wrong I invite you to spend a couple of hours with a group of high school seniors.

I don’t care where you find them. I don’t care if it is in a school, at a mall, or, dare I say it, a Christian youth group at your local church. You will be hard pressed to find any of those students who hold and are able to defend a truly Biblical worldview.

The fake left has been successful in classifying hard-core Biblical beliefs as “hate” speech. Because the worst thing anyone can do today is hate something even the adoption of Christian values has to be given a different name. It is very unusual to find any young person who will self-identify as a Christian when questioned regarding his/her political ideology.

Defying Mob Rule: John Kelly & Michael Franzese – Jon Robberson, Producer Hagmann Report

Monday March 20, 2017

Tonight on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report…

7:00pm EDT  We smash right out of the gate this evening with debut guest, FBI Serial Killer Profiler, John Kelly.

John Kelly is one of America’s preeminent serial killer profilers, murder theorists and addiction specialists who rose to national fame as co-star of Investigation Discovery’s “Dark Minds” television series. His street smart background and insights obtained as a therapist working with drug addicts led him to prominence when he began to pioneer the use of the term “addiction” with serial killer in his 1992 paper, “The Alcohol, Drug and Serial Killer Connection”. Kelly is also author of Low Self-Esteem The Beginning Of Addiction. He later founded S.T.A.L.K. Inc. (System To Apprehend Lethal Killers) which aids law enforcement in the capture of murderers through a comprehensive profiling process.  Kelly has worked with police on over 100 cases over the past 20 years. As the first theorist to identify serial killing as an addiction, Kelly‘s profiling efforts were applied to the case of the Green River Killer, the Main South Woodsman case, the Charles Cullen Angel of Death case, Scotland Yard’s Gay Slayer case, the 2001 Anthrax Killer case, the Atlantic City Murders, and the case of the Long Island Killer among others. Kelly, who often acts as an expert witness consultant, has conducted interviews with serial murderers such as the “Killer Clown” John Wayne Gacy and Death Row inmate Henry Lee Lucas. It was through S.T.A.L.K. that Kelly first enlisted the help of a convicted serial killer code-named “13” to build criminal profiles. He has been working with 13 for over ten years. Kelly  is the author of  ​Warning Signs — A Guidebook for Parents.

8:00pm EDT  We have eagerly sought this guest for our program for quite some time and it is with great anticipation that we welcome Christian Evangelist, former wise guy, Mr Michael Franzese.

Michael Franzese grew up as the son of the notorious Underboss of New York’s violent and feared Colombo crime family. At his most affluent, he generated an estimated $5 to $8 million per week from legal and illegal businesses. It was a life filled with power, luxury…and deadly violence.

In 1986, mafia boss, Michael Franzese was named one of the biggest money earners the mob had seen since Al Capone, by Vanity Fair. At the age of 35, Fortune Magazine listed him as number 18 on its list of the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”, just 5 behind John Gotti. Avoiding traditional mob domains, Michael masterminded brilliant scams on the edge of the legitimate business world. From auto dealerships and union kickbacks, to financial services and the sports and entertainment industries, to a multi-billion dollar gasoline tax scheme, he earned millions in cash every week at his peak. Not surprisingly, Michael quickly became the target of Manhattan’s famed federal prosecutor, Rudy Guiliani. After promising Michael 100 years behind bars after indicting him on racketeering charges, Rudy only came up empty handed. Escaping four more indictments, it seemed Michael Franzese truly was invincible.
While producing Knights of the City, a break dance movie filmed in Florida, Michael met a beautiful dancer from Anaheim, California, named Camille Garcia, whose innocent beauty and faith turned his world upside down. After falling in love and eventually marrying Cammy, Michael took the rap on racketeering charges. Michael pled guilty, accepted a 10 year prison sentence and vowed to do the unthinkable – walk away from the mob. Nobody of his rank had ever just walked away – and lived. Until now.

Michael Franzese is the only high ranking official of a major crime family to ever walk away, without protective custodies, and survive.

Determined to use the compelling experiences of his former life for the benefit of corporate executives, professional and student athletes, at-risk youth, church audiences, and for anyone seeking the inspiration to beat the odds and make positive changes in their lives, he has become a highly regarded motivator and a source of invaluable information. Franzese candidly describes how he survived dozens of grand jury appearances, 5 major racketeering indictments, 5 criminal trials, 7 years in prison and a Mafia death sentence. He tells how he engaged bankers, corporate executives, union officials and professional and student athletes in a wide variety of financial scams. His open and honest presentations are fresh and unique. Audiences are captivated by stories of his personal experiences in organized crime and genuinely affected by his powerful anti-crime messages and eye opening revelations.

His autobiography, Blood Covenant, Michael reveals answers to many mysteries surrounding his incredible journey. Walk the streets with him to find out how he has done what no one else has managed to do.

His latest book, I’ll Make You An Offer You Can’t Refuse, was recently released by Thomas Nelson, and contains insider business tips from the former mob boss.

Disastrous National Security Breach in U.S. Congress – Doug Hagmann

Unless you’re plugged in to the independent media, there’s a good chance that you’ve not yet heard of one of the largest and arguably most important cases of government infiltration in recent history.

On February 2, 2017, three Pakistani brothers with top access to the computer systems inside the U.S. House of Representatives containing some of the nation’s most sensitive information were removed from their positions by U.S. Capitol Police.

The three brothers who are the target of a criminal probe, deliberately understated as a “procurement scam” include Imran Awan, Abid Awan and Jamal Moiz Awan, each who were the “shared employees” of at least 31 Democratic Congressional Representatives. But the case itself and potential damage is much, much worse than is being reported, if it’s being reported at all.
