File Under: Get Ready...It's Coming.

A principal and an athletic director are being put on trial for praying in the teachers lounge:

"The criminal charges, which carry up to a $5,000 fine and a six-month jail term, originated with a Jan. 28 incident in which Mr. Lay, a deacon at a local Baptist church, asked Mr. Freeman to offer mealtime prayers at a lunch for school employees and booster-club members who had helped with a school field-house project.

Mr. Staver said no students were present at the event, which was held on school property but after school hours.

"He wasn't thinking he was violating an order," he said. "Neither did the athletic director. He was asked to pray and so he did."

Can you see the situation...people are about to eat, and someone says hey would you pray for the food? Sure, no big deal, right? Except when it can result in 6 months in jail.

In other related news, California is getting ready to release hundreds of inmates because of budget cuts. At least we know the real criminals will still be doing hard time in Florida.

Incidents like this make me wonder and fear how the Church will respond when real persecution comes. How do we wage a righteous battle against the powers that are at work among us now? I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be through politics or the republican party, etc.,etc. That confuses the issue, and can make us fail to realize that the war is not against "flesh and blood." We need to fall on our knees and pray for forgiveness first, then ask God to give us wisdom and discernment for the times that are ahead AND for the times we're already in.
