WHICH GOD WILL YOU SERVE—THE GOD OF LIFE AND LIBERTY OR THE GOD OF SHARIAH AND DEATH?

It seems people are stridently and rapidly turning from God across America. The damage the Obama administration has done to the government as it outlawed God is incalculable—but Jesus is walking in America. A secular celebration of Christmas happens in more than half the homes—but Jesus is walking in America. Most are aware that God is not welcome on most university campuses—but Jesus is walking in America.

Methodist founded Duke University is a great example of God being not welcome (just too embarrassing) on campus. The great Gothic Chapel was turned into an “ecumenical facility” by the enlightened administration at Duke years ago. Now the University announced yesterday they will  transform the bell tower on the cathedral into a minaret! Yes the announcement said the Islamic call to prayer will be broadcast each Friday morning from the cathedral bell tower.

I could not say it more clearly than Bob Dylan who wrote, each of us Gotta Serve Somebody. Here are the 1979 lyrics—read then all:

You may be an ambassador to England or France
You may like to gamble, you might like to dance
You may be the heavyweight champion of the world
You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You might be a rock n’ roll addict, prancin’ on the stage
You might have drugs at your command, women in a cage
You may be a business man or some high degree thief
They may call you doctor or they may call you chief

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes you’re
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a state trooper, you might be a young turk
You may be the head of some big TV network
You may be rich or poor, you may be blind or lame
You may be livin’ in another country under another name

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes you’re
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a construction worker workin’ on a home
You might be livin’ in a mansion, you might live in a dome
You might own guns and you might even own tanks
You might be somebody’s landlord, you might even own banks

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Yes you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman takin’ bribes on the side
You may be workin’ in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody’s mistress, may be somebody’s heir

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Yes you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

Might like to wear cotton, might like to wear silk
Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk
You might like to eat caviar, you might like to eat bread
You may be sleepin’ on the floor, sleepin’ in a king-sized bed

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You may call me Terry, you may call me Timmy
You may call me Bobby, you may call me Zimmy
You may call me R.J., you may call me Ray
You may call me anything, no matter what you say

You’re still gonna have to serve somebody
Yes you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

You may want to hear Dylan sing Gotta Serve Somebody:

Remember Jesus is walking in America and Muhammad is dead. Yesterday Dr. Franklin Graham took Duke to task on his Facebook page where he wrote:

“Duke announced today that they will have a Muslim call to prayer from their chapel bell tower every Friday. As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering, and beheading Christians, Jews, and anyone who doesn’t submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Duke is promoting this in the name of religious pluralism. I call on the donors and alumni to withhold their support from Duke until this policy is reversed.”

Did I mention Jesus is walking in America and Muhammad is dead?

Duke Reversal

“[A]fter announcing that Islamic students would be broadcasting a weekly call to prayer from the Duke Chapel bell tower, Duke University officials abandoned that plan Thursday, citing the furor the move had created.”

Oh, did I say Jesus is walking?
