My Life & Death Struggle For Religious Liberty: How God Used Me To Help Save The Mt. Soledad Cross

Laying myself open to the world's condemnation, God allowed me to speak forth a prophetic word that helped to save the Mt. Soledad Cross in San Diego, California from being torn down by the ACLU. During this 2005 speech before the San Diego Council, the mayor told the audience they could not clap during my speech. You will also notice a very sad, but true reality in this video. Directly to the right of me in the video, Philip Paulson is sitting. He is the avowed atheist who fought for nearly two decades to tear down the cross. He heard the gospel through my speech. The following year after my speech, Paulson was diagnosed with liver cancer and he died. He never repented and never succeeded in his 20 year mission to remove the Mt. Soledad Cross from public property. The cross was saved and still remains in its present location.

Slide the video time ruler to time of 02:38:50 to view my speech.

"I think, God has exhibited us apostles last of all, as men condemned to death; because we have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men. We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are prudent in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are distinguished, but we are without honor." I Corinthians 4

The cross will be removed from public lands.

Secularism lost a hero when Philip Paulson died, and your 'God' had nothing to do with his death. Others will step up and take the lead, even as nutcases posing as Christians pay for their deaths.

The number of people embracing religion is declining. 22% of young people now choose NONE as their religion. The days of people listening to the James Hartlines of the world are numbered.

That should have read: Secularism lost a hero when Philip Paulson died, and your 'God' had nothing to do with his death. Others will step up and take the lead, even as nutcases posing as Christians pray for their deaths.

What's the matter? Slow news day force you to bring up the past and pontificate on yourself while trashing defenseless dead people who were expressing their beliefs just as you do?

Matthew 7:1-5 ESV

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.




Matthew 7:1-2 ESV

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.

Some blogs will not approve comments that they do not like. James however, much to his credit, approves both the good and the bad. This shows integrity; the same as Jesus did when he said, "Come unto me ALL...", "Whosoever..."

I do not agree with everything James says but when he has the courage to NOT run from some ugly comments, that shows character.

David, you're wrong. James Hartline censors at least half the comments I leave here.
