KIRK CAMERON to Release New Children’s Book ‘Pride Comes Before the Fall’ During Pride Month

‘Growing Pains’ actor pushing back against hedonistic culture

Good for you, Kirk Cameron! Speak directly from God’s Holy Word!


Christian author Kirk Cameron’s new children’s book on the pitfalls of pride will be released on June 1, coinciding with the beginning of Pride Month.

In a culture where drag queen nuns perform at baseball games and companies promote LGBT baby clothing, Cameron sees his latest book about humility as an antidote to run-away narcissism.

Cameron called releasing “Pride Comes Before the Fall” at the beginning of a month-long celebration of LGBT culture “perfect timing.”

While his second title isn’t specifically aimed at LGBT ideology, it does target the idea that all forms of pride can lead to ruin, he said.

“My book isn’t an anti-gay book. It’s a book on humility,” Cameron told The Epoch Times.

The book is the second title published by Brave Books, a conservative publisher. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon, where it retails for $22.99.

Cameron said pride is the greatest of the Seven Deadly Sins because it leads to other sins, such as greed, anger, and sloth.

“Everything that’s wrong with our country—it’s people thinking of themselves instead of others,” he said.

“Pride Comes Before the Fall” is a way to push back against “woke” culture one book at a time for Cameron, famous for playing Mike Seaver in the 1985–92 sitcom “Growing Pains.”

The book is about Valor, a tiger, and Kevin, an elephant, as they pair up to compete in the Great Raka Rapids race. Valor doesn’t think he can win with Kevin. Valor’s pride puts him and his teammate in a tough spot, bringing home a lesson in humility and how winning isn’t everything.

Humility is the antidote to the sin of pride—a growing problem in society, where people are fixated on themselves and put their needs first, Cameron said.

People need to ask themselves who benefits from the sexualization of children, whether through drag queen shows or explicit sexual content in school library books, he added.

Groomers only think of themselves and not the children they harm, he said.

Cameron said he had to learn the lesson of humility when he struggled with fame as an actor.

“That could have taken me out,” he said. “[God] gives grace to the humble.”

He read his new book for the first time at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina, in mid-May.

The response was spectacular. We had 1,000 people there. The kids loved it,” Cameron said.

His next reading will be on May 27 at the Seattle Public Library as part of a nationwide tour.

Cameron, who now stars mostly in Christian films, made headlines in December when he attempted to schedule story-hour readings of his first book “As You Grow.” The book celebrates faith, family, and The Bible.

“As You Grow” followed the journey of a tree’s growth and Biblical wisdom through the seasons of life.

His efforts were denied or ignored by 50 “woke” libraries, many of which held drag-queen story hours, he said at the time.

Afterward, Cameron wrote letters to directors of the Indianapolis Public Library in Indiana and the Scarsdale Public Library in New York, asking for the same opportunity they’d given drag performers.

The two relented after Cameron said publicly he was ready to go to court to fight for his free speech rights under the U.S. Constitution.

The book readings prompted large turnouts of conservatives who thanked Cameron for standing up.

He then challenged parents tired of being silenced by social-justice elites to host a pro-family, Christian story hour at their local public libraries.

Cameron even offered a free copy of his new books to people who wanted to hold a story hour at local libraries. He suggested reading The Bible as well.

Cameron hopes reading wholesome books at libraries that seem to prefer drag queens over faith will spark a movement nationwide to take the country back to its founding principles.

Brave Books founder Trent Talbot told The Epoch Times that pride is an important topic often ill-defined or even glorified today.

He hopes Cameron’s second book will be as successful as his first one, which sold 80,000 copies.

Talbot said Cameron’s new book counters the idea of pride and self-absorption with one of humility.

Sins are now being “flaunted” in the public square, leaving parents leery of trusting institutions with their children, he said.

Conservative parents crave a return to a wholesome society, he said, adding they seem to realize that a real war is being waged against their beliefs.

“Christian conservatives are finally starting to wake up,” Talbot said. “We’re starting to see that with Bud Light and Target.” Source


BOYCOTT BOYCOTT: Target Shares Fall Following ‘Pride’ Push

Customers have started reacting strongly to corporate ideological pandering. The American people are speaking loudly. Will retailers’ bottom line break the satanic push for all things LGBTQ?

Shares of Target have recently declined after the company launched LGBTQ products, including items aimed at children, triggering a backlash from Americans against the retailer’s transgender push.

Target rolled out its Pride collection at the beginning of the month, offering over 2,000 products, including clothing, books, home furnishings, and calendars, among others. Some of the items were targeted at children. For example, books for kids aged 2–8 had titles like “Pride 1,2,3,” “Bye Bye, Binary,” and “I’m Not a Girl.” Target also suggested “The Pronoun Book” to kids aged 0–3. In home décor, Target offered mugs labeled “Gender Fluid.” It also offered transgender swimsuits for adults with a “tuck-friendly” feature.

The company’s actions attracted a lot of negative reactions online, with the hashtag “BoycottTarget” trending across social media.

Amid the backlash, Target’s shares have declined by 11 percent as of 11:00 a.m. EST on May 25. Between May 1 and May 24, the company’s market capitalization fell from $72.52 billion to $66.05 billion, a decline of $6.47 billion.

In a May 24 press release, the company announced removing some of the controversial items. “Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work.

“Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior.”

Liz Wheeler, who hosts “The Liz Wheeler Show” video podcast, called out Target for not apologizing for promoting “pride” agenda.

“Target executives are freaking out & moving ‘pride’ displays to the back of the store. But DO NOT CAVE. They’re not apologizing. They’re blaming YOU, claiming conservatives who oppose a Satanist designing queer merchandise for kids are a ‘threat,’” she said in a May 24 tweet.

Satanist Products

Some of the items in Target’s Pride collection were designed by UK-based designer Abprallen, who identifies as a transgender gay man and is a proclaimed Satanist.

There were two items from Abprallen in the Pride collection. However, the products are now not available in Target’s online store following the backlash, according to Breitbart.

An outspoken Satanist, Abprallen is known for pushing messages like “Satan respects pronouns” on apparel and “burn down the cis-tem.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) slammed Target for its ties with a Satanist. “Even by the standards of woke corporations, @Target’s partnership with a satanist to push the trans agenda on children is remarkable. The next time @Target comes begging for help, Republicans should respond, ‘best of luck,’” he said in a May 23 tweet.

Protecting Children

The Democrat governor of California, Gavin Newsom, hit out at Target for pulling out items from the Pride collection, calling the move “selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists.”

“This isn’t just a couple [of] stores in the South. There is a systematic attack on the gay community happening across the country. Wake up America. This doesn’t stop here. You’re black? You’re Asian? You’re Jewish? You’re a woman? You’re next,” he said in a May 24 tweet.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) countered Newsom by insisting that “no one is attacking the gay community.”

“They don’t want their children forcefully exposed to the radical side of pride with ‘tuck it’ and ‘binding’ children’s clothes and messaging while simply shopping at Target. We don’t support your California child genital mutilation industry. As a matter of fact, I want to end it,” she said in a tweet.

The backlash against Target is the latest in a series of customer reactions against companies pushing left-wing, progressive ideologies. Last month, Bud Light used transgender social media personality Dylan Mulvaney in a promotional campaign.

The decision triggered a massive boycott call of the beer brand. In less than two weeks after the promo campaign, Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, had lost at least $6.65 billion in market capitalization. source

Brethren, I think that it was God’s will that the people saw the children’s LGBTQ clothing line came directly from a Satanist! That certainly puts things in perspective for everyone!



Banking Commission Freezes Deposits at Capital One


New York City’s Banking Commission on Thursday punished banking giants Capital One and KeyBank for not filing anti-discrimination plans with the city.

New York City Comptroller Brad Lander issued a release headlined that the commission voted to “freeze NYC’s deposits” at the two banks.

“The headline is a wobbly one, given the recent banking system chaos. But, the detail is oh-so NY,” Eamonn Sheridan commented on Forexlive.

The freeze has nothing to do with the soundness of the banks, but their compliance with a New York City edict that anti-discrimination plans must be filed. The commission’s action means no more city money will go into Capital One and KeyBank.

Three other banks that wanted to be designated as banks that could hold the city’s cash — International Finance Bank, PNC Bank, and Wells Fargo — were rejected for the same reason.

“Banks seeking to do business with New York City must demonstrate that they will be responsible managers of public funds and responsible actors in our communities,” Lander said in his release.
“Unfortunately, despite several opportunities to do so, five banks failed to comply with the New York City Banking Commission’s designation process — leaving us to conclude that they are not taking meaningful actions to combat discrimination in their operations and are not responsible stewards of public dollars,” he said Mayor Eric Adams was among the votes against the banks that ran afoul of the rules.
According to the release, Capital One, which held $7.2 million in New York City money as of the end of April, and KeyBank, which held $10 million, “outright refused to submit required policies.”
As a result, no new deposits will flow to those banks for the next two years.

International Finance Bank, PNC Bank, and Wells Fargo, “failed to demonstrate they were taking action to prevent discrimination in branch openings and closings, lending decisions, hiring, and other operations,” the release said.

Deputy Comptroller for Policy Annie Levers noted that among concerns brought forward by New York City residents were that city money was supporting banks that provide funding for “fossil fuel extraction, and gun manufacturing.”

The release said that public comments included accounts from Muslims who say they were discriminated against and tenants who claimed some banks’ lending practices “jeopardize their rights and safe living conditions.”

“Climate advocates condemned banks that have continued to lend billions of dollars for fossil-fuel expansion, despite having made net-zero commitments,” the release said. Source

Brothers and sisters in Christ, I feel something is afoot. Even though they say that these two banks are financially sound, it makes me wonder what is really going on. Just this news coming out is harmful to these banks. I’m sure that customers of both banks are a bit jittery and wondering if their accounts may be in peril.

Who knows? SO many lies coming from all directions.

We keep our eyes on our Lord Jesus.

We trust Him fully and we keep looking up!


CANCELING GOD ALMIGHTY: Father God Please use the Insanity of this World to Bring Many to You for Salvation

I often wonder how the unsaved who still have functioning brains, can look at and read about the insanity of our world, and not question what is truly happening.

Twenty, even ten years ago – people would have been shocked to see a world in which their own biological gender would be challenged and people left to their own devices to thumb their noses at the Creator, Almighty God, and tell Him that He made a mistake!

I suppose that is just the point. Most people are questioning the very existence of God, believing in a huge BANG which resulted in this glorious world with oceans, flowers, mountains and exquisite starry-filled night skies – and everything else which God spoke into existence.

The Bible says this:

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).

People have always attempted to reach heaven without God. From the Tower of Babel, which God promptly brought to an end, dividing their language and displaying His sovereignty; to today’s AI, CERN, HAARP and many other lofty man-made attempts to usurp God – even trying to “cancel” Him!

Won’t it be a shock to these pride-filled blasphemers such as Yuval Noah Harari, when they stand before the Great White Throne of judgment? I can even imagine Harari shaking his fist in the face of God! YES – he is SO filled with pride and the sound of his own voice!

Satan is his father – don’t ever doubt that!

The Poor Children

Who would have thought that the most innocent of humans, little children, would be sent to “schools” not for an education in writing, math, history and other subjects which would prepare them to be productive citizens as they reached adulthood – NO – these children are being indoctrinated with LIES from the evil one. They are being taught to question their own biological genders which were assigned by God while these little ones were yet in the wombs of their mothers!


Brethren, as we are so close to the time in history when good is evil and evil good – pray for the unsaved and share with them the most glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ which can save their souls from an eternal fiery hell with Satan and his demons!

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

Are you one who is reading this post, and you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior? Do you have a troubling feeling in your heart, that you know that your eternal existence is in peril? I tell you that you can know that you are right with Almighty God.

There is only one way and that is through Jesus Christ!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

Perhaps there is a person in your life who desperately needs understanding from God’s Word about How to come into a relationship with Christ and be saved. Perhaps this post is for them to see.

Many years ago, during a night filled with bodily pain, the Lord urged me to make “How Can I Be Saved?” This has been shared numerous times at the end of posts on “Absolute Truth from the Word of God.” Here it is again:

How Can I Be Saved?

This is the MOST important thing you will ever do.

“(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
