Why “The Mountain”?
Micah 4 (KJV) 1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.

The name “The Mountain” has dual importance for me in this project. First, because of my deep love for Israel, and my longing to know everything I can about establishing the Kingdom of Christ on the Earth. Secondly, because I love the Church.
Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis recently built a $100,000,000 life size replica of the Ark of Noah. He lit the entire museum in rainbow colors to take back the rainbow symbol, currently used by the sodomite community to represent the perversion of sexual diversity, masquerading as a counterfeit “love”.
The liberal media and proponents of a New World Order, or global governance have likewise hijacked journalism and the Free Press. In most major cities around the United States, we find publications widely circulated by the sodomite community showing where the bars, nightclubs, adults bookstores and other centers of debauchery can be found throughout our communities – in plain sight of innocent eyes of children and creating a “normalcy bias” that is dangerous and destructive to our culture and way of life.
The vision behind “The Mountain” is aligned with Romans 12:21 “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Recently Jeff Laszloffy of the Montana Family Foundation, in a controversial blog off their website called for pastors to practice civil disobedience speaking out politically, even though most of them would violate their 501(c)(3) tax exempt status, a contract with the government they entered into of their own free will in order to avoid paying taxes and receive more donations – even though churches have never paid taxes in the United States and do not require tax exempt status to operate as a church and meet the needs of the churches.
Because of the Johnson Amendment, and its unintended consequences, the church has been lulled into a dark sleep politically with very few pastors and spiritual leaders willing to cross that line in the sand.
The Mountain offers the opportunity for those who are not sold out to being silenced the opportunity to share their spiritual views and political concerns by using a free press that is ready and willing to let them voice their concerns and views to the community.
Just as the sodomite community has exercised their right to a free press collectively, The Mountain, and other Christian newspapers around the country offer this to the church universal. Yes, there are conflicts. Many do not want to participate unless their views, and their views alone are expressed and substantiated while disregarding the views of their brothers and sisters in Christ as heresy if anyone should disagree. Others may view this project as one of ecumenicism.
I hope you will see this as an opportunity to let your voice, your church, and your faith be visible in a bold new way.
Those I pity are the ones who will stand before Christ one day and be asked why they should be allowed to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, and list all the things they have done for Christ as they saw fit. Then Christ will show them all the brothers and sisters who they were unable to get along with on Earth, and sadly be rejected because they did not show the love of Christ to one another.
There are opinions that I have published across the state of Montana in the last few years that I did not agree with either. However, as long as one can substantiate their point of view in the canonized scriptures, I welcome any opinions, articles, or concerns that are of importance to the Christian community and building the Kingdom of Christ.
Together we can make the impact on our communities that is necessary to take our country back for Christ. We are a Christian nation, and together we can ensure that our laws, morals, educational system, and faith through love stand long in the face of evil and false religion. We can grow together, learn from each other and love each other.
More than anything, I want you to know the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We hope to show the reason for his birth, crucifixion, and resurrection, and the nearness of His soon coming reign on Earth.
