A new bill was passed by congress on the 21st which mandates that within 160 days, after a nation wide "Call for Service" is anounced, citizens of the United States will have to so paid-voluntery work for (I think) three months. Dont ask me how its both paid and voluntery at the same time. Take a look at the bill for yourself:

Here are Obamas words during his signing in of this bill:
-Remarks by the President at Signing of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve ...
Heres a video about this that Obama released:
Apparently, there is a section in this bill which somehow deals with worship and religion. Im not exactly sure what is meant there. That section is Section 125a(7) in the bill.
Here's what I found.
"September 11th Day of Service-
`(1) FEDERAL ACTIVITIES- The Corporation may organize and carry out appropriate ceremonies and activities, which may include activities that are part of the broader Call to Service Campaign under subsection (j), in order to observe the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance
at the Federal level.
`(2) ACTIVITIES- The Corporation may make grants and provide other support to community-based organizations to assist in planning and carrying out appropriate service, charity, and remembrance opportunities in conjunction with the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance
`(3) CONSULTATION- The Corporation may consult with and make grants or provide other forms of support to nonprofit organizations with expertise in representing families of victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and other impacted constituencies, and in promoting the establishment of September 11 as an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance
Next year, September 11 falls on a Sabbath. You mean to tell me I have to observe this day and do service on the Sabbath????
I would like to know what everyone thinks about this new bill. Here's my hunch as to why this could lead to a National Sunday Law....
.... if they will require people to work for those 3 months, what about those who worship on Sabbath and cant work on Saturdays? Or what about those, who sincerely believe Sunday is the Sabbath, who like-wise cant work on their religious day? Since this bill was already passed, I think there are only two solutions to this problem:
1: Repeal the Bill entirely. But this is not likely because thir making this bill seem like some wonderful act, which, as they claim, gives people opportunity to give back to their country and make money while their at it.
2: Request the public decide on a specific day everyone can have off. The majority believe in a Sunday sabbath, so this would likely be the one chosen. See my video on CBS's praise of sunday blue laws and the benefits it supposedly had on the country in the 1800's (click here
). This option would REQUIRE us to work on the other six days (which includes the Sabbath day) while taking Sunday off. There lies the problem!
Are there any other options???? Here's some comments Ive gotten via email regarding this bill:
I would like to call your attention to an Amendment in the H. R. 1388 Act. It is Section 125 (42 U.S.C. 12575). Although this portion of the H. R. 1388 Act has been repealed, it shows you what legislators are thinking about and what they want to do. United States leaders are testing out legislation that will prohibit us from worshiping God according to the dictates of our hearts
. And to prove that even further, they have actually left a piece of legislation in this Act (which is already signed into law) that is and will affect those who are involved in the Mandatory "Volunteer" program in the future (the very near future). We'll talk a bit about this below. But first, please take a look at Section 125. I've highlighted the parts that you need to pay close attention to and added some comments by a few people around the internet that were paying close attention to this piece of legislation:
‘SEC. 125. PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES AND INELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS.
‘(a) Prohibited Activities- A participant in an approved national service position under this subtitle may not engage in the following activities:
‘(1) Attempting to influence legislation.
‘(2) Organizing or engaging in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes.
‘(3) Assisting, promoting, or deterring union organizing.
‘(4) Impairing existing contracts for services or collective bargaining agreements.
‘(5) Engaging in partisan political activities, or other activities designed to influence the outcome of an election to any public office.
‘(6) Participating in, or endorsing, events or activities that are likely to include advocacy for or against political parties, political platforms, political candidates, proposed legislation, or elected officials.
‘(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization
COMMENTS: Did you get that last part? Citizens may not protest anything against their government. Religious people, while serving the mandatory three year term, may not proselytize, instruct, or preach. And we know that young people are our most at-risk of leaving the church to begin with.
So anyone volunteering cannot be involved in politics, unions, or religion? Let us keep in mind while it sounds like they can’t be involved in partisan political activities, they will be doing work assigned by the government, which is inherently partisan. So in effect, the people volunteering are doing the will of the government and are not permitted to be free to make their own choices and get involved in what they believe in on their own time. This is indoctrination, pure and simple. And are these people really volunteers or are they “volunteers?”
This legislation is calling for mandatory service and denial of religious rights and protesting.
Lets read this bill together friends, and put our thoughts together. Time is very short and we know that the Sunday Law is really going to happen. Its prophesied both in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy (click HERE
Jesus is coming! Do you represnt him in every way? Have you allowed his perfect life to manifest itself through you? Has his character become yours? Will he find a people waiting for him when he appears?
I think its about time the leave the major cities friends! Please pray about this and call unto JESUS for salvation from this wicked world and its sins. God bless!
In Jesus, the Solution,
