For too long Christians have been silent

When they should have stood up and marched upon Washington when abortion was legalized. Instead they set in their churches praying and saying it would get better. Instead it has gotten worse. Atheism is on the rise, people that hid their sins openly parade it for all to see. And who is truly to blame? Those that call themselves “Christian.”
Did they correctly teach their children the Bible? No they did not.
Did they correctly reach out to those that sin? No they did not.
Now we are heading quickly into a world full of sin and damnation. Something unthinkable three decades ago, but here it is.
And those that are truly responsible sit in their churches praying and saying it will get better. Sorry, that is not how it works. Yes love the sinner but hate the sin, but also teach the sinner that they are sinning.
If they say you are judging them say: No it is not me that is judging them, but the Bible says you cannot do this or do that, so it is the Bible that is judging them and so if it is the Bible doing the judging then it is God that is truly the judge, I am but His tool His instrument for I am of His Body.
Stand up for your faith and in doing so stand up for God and be counted worthy.

Debate Review – Prime Time

I came away from this debate worried for this nation. I saw the corruption within the Republican Party and was worried even more then before for this nation. Now you have to understand. I now consider myself unaffiliated from any party even though I grew up and spent most of my life as a Republican. You must also understand that I will never vote for the Democratic Party since they have officially rejected God and have members in power that admit to lying and truly do not care for anyone in this nation because they wish to subjugate all within a socialist type government.
But back on topic: The Debate.
Why do I say I saw the corruption within the Republican Party? Last night due to Fox’s own polling they rigged it so Rick Perry would not be in the top ten, but instead Chris Christie would be. He was planted there as an attack dog against Rand Paul. Why? Because Mr. Paul has openly stated he will reduce the federal government. This has proven throughout the decades to be something that both parties do not wish to do. Christie should not have been on that stage, but no other candidate would attack Paul has he did several times. It is obvious that Christie will not make it to the nomination which is why he was chosen to discredit Paul as best he could.
Paul saw the writing on the wall and so interrupted when he could to make sure he would get heard. In total Rand Paul was asked four questions and only one was of any true substance the rest were aimed at tearing him down further, he was also never given any follow-up questions as most others were, but instead the moderators went to Christie to attack him instead.
Donald Trump has proven why he is running as a Republican, he isn’t one. He is a plant for the Democratic Party meant to split votes allowing the Democratic Party to win, for odds are in favor at this time that he will run against whomever the real candidate for the RNC turns out to be.
Jeb Bush is a weak candidate and it showed fully well last night. He is not his father or his brother and it showed that it was his name that got him elected governor. His high point was his defense of his stance of Common Core which he actually flip flopped on during this very debate.
Scott Walker – was he even there? Oh yea he was, but made no true impact.
Ben Carson showed his intelligence and his humor. He was one of two others on the stage that support a type of flat tax, the others being Paul and Huckabee, but I still see him as a good Vice-President.
Ted Cruz again proved himself to be charismatic and well spoken, but to me he is still too far to the right.
Mike Huckabee did well and got his points across well and his idea of a nation sales tax instead of a flat income tax outright an interesting idea, but he like most upon the stage show no signs of truly reducing the size of the federal government.
Marco Rubio presented himself well, but being married into the Bush family and wished to have a two tiered tax system and does not wish to reduce the federal government leaves me cold to his warmness.
John Kasich was the darling of the moderators. He got the most questions, his responses were as empty of content as Trump’s were. His response when asked about God left me knowing that he is a paper Christian and so I will not support him in any way shape or form.
Of the five that were asked about God only Dr. Carson came out on top with Cruz a very close second. Walker and Rubio answered very well also, but as I just stated above Mr. Kasich showed me that he just lips the words to get votes. I wish they would have asked the question to all ten.
The questions asked in this debate were much better than in the first one, but appears they were given to people upon how they scored in the polls or that they were the governor of the state that hosted the debate. Again I was disappointed in the overall presentation given by Fox News.

Debate review the bottom 7

This is not going to be an in-depth review but a quick personal over view of what I heard.

First and foremost – Lindsey Graham is a warmonger all his responds turned into to going to war in the Middle East. I guess someone made him angry when he was over there cause that is all he can fixate upon.

Bobby Jindal – was all over the place, going with what was popular in the media at this particular moment… Already have a president in office that does that now.

George Pataki and Jim Gilmore – old school Republicans — had enough of that already … we need term limits even on the ability to offer to run for president.

Carly Fiorina — Rick Perry basically said it himself she is perfect for Secretary of State, nuff said.

Rick Perry deserves some more attention, but I need more details. He was vague in several answers but at least he stood up to Obama on the boarder issue, but that is just not enough… need more before I will say.

Biggest Disappointment of this debate? Rick Santorum, I heard talking points and no real answers, and no true reflection of his values he has stated he has. Sorry lost my vote for sure.

As for the moderation… I heard a lot of favoritism and no really hard hitting questions except for a few, but those few not all were allowed to answer on… poor time management Fox News tisk tisk tisk.

It is time

It is time to leave our houses.
It is time to leave our comfort zone.
It is time to leave our safety
It is time to teach that which we have been told time and again to teach.
It is time to preach that which we have been told time and again to preach.
Once again those that are the moral are called the amoral by those that have admitted they are liars. For they see that through lies they are made great when in reality they are shown to be the truly lower than the low.
We are told to teach the entire gospel, which is not all good news. We are to let those that deny God know that they will not end up in a good place. We are to offer them salvation and glory unto what is good and righteous in the eyes of the Lord.
Many will reject it.
Many will seek to defame us.
Many will seek to silence us.
There will even be those that seek to kill us.
We have been too silent too long and it is time to make our choice. God and possible death in this temporal life or to continue to live in this world as it falls into ruin and destruction.
Here is one thing that many do not realize and accept. This life, where we get dressed and go to a job, or care for a loved one. This life, where we go about shopping and reading or watching television. This is not the real life we are promised by God. This life is merely a test of your faith of your beliefs.
Many choose to deny there is a God, and believe that only humans are responsible for humans. As a result many of these think themselves better than others and so wish to subjugate them. This is not moral or right.
Others accept there is a God, yet they do not fully understand His ways, and to a degree that is how it should be. For if we knew all the right answers there would still be those that sought to be better than others. This is not what God and Jesus taught. They taught place God FIRST all others especially the innocent SECOND and ourselves and our desires last.
It is time to step out into the world and to let our voices be heard.
It is time to stand up for what is right and good.
It is time to not listen to those that say we are amoral when it is they are sickened and depraved.
It is time to use the ballot box, the peaceful protest and social media to make it know what is God’s word. What is God’s plan, and what is glorious and beautiful in His eyes.
And what is that? It is not sin. It is not hypocrisy, it is not the slaughter of innocents.
May it result in our death? Yes it may.
But look at it this way. If we die we get to be with Jesus and His Father. I would rather be there then here, but it is here we are needed, and how we are needed is to stand up for God and give Him obedience.
Mark 16: 15 – And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: ANGER

Yes I am angry. I am angry because people care for some wild animals death over the dismemberment of aborted babies. These nameless gentle beings that are known by God, but rejected by humanity are dismissed offhandedly while a stinking lion is killed. REALLY REALLY???? A LION?
When an animal is more important than what could have been a human says that those that call themselves human are in reality animals.
Now I worded that sentence that way on purpose. To me every child BEFORE the moment of conception IS a human being. Is a baby. The soul is already there, for God has stated in the Bible that He knew us before we were conceived, well He said that to Jeremiah, but you get the drift. All that is happening is that a body is developing to hold that soul, to carry that soul throughout this reality.
Jesus has always been. Jesus has always been with God even at the creation of this reality, yet over two thousand years ago His soul entered into a body within the womb of Mary and Jesus IS the Son of God.
But “humans” care more for a big cat than over 55,000,000 babies many of which have been torn and cut apart for their organs. Soon “humanity” will face it’s judgment and for many they shall see just how God treats the inhumane and personally right this minute I feel no pity or remorse for what they are going to suffer over and over and over again for billions upon billions of years. It will never be enough.
I’m sorry I just can’t forgive people this time. That is Jesus Christ’s job, not mine.

What is the law that we are not held too in the Bible?

Here is another one of those things that people have either not been taught correctly or at all. In Romans there is a major section of this letter that deals with the “law” and how those that follow Christ are no longer in need to follow. Many think this means they do not need to follow the Bible at all, others think you do not need to follow the Old Testament, others feel you are free to do as you please as long as they say they are one with Christ.
All of these ideas are false.
What is going on in Romans is an explanation on the need to not give sacrifices at the temple any longer. No longer is the need to prepare food a certain way. No longer necessary is the requirement to follow this ritual or that ritual which have been set forth by the Pharisees. One of the main reasons for this is by the time that Christ walked the earth many un-needed things had been added by humans and not God. So in actuality the original law was not even being truly followed as Christ Himself point out but a type of man-made legalism.
Now what is important Jesus clearly said He came to fully the law and not replace it. So this means that sacrifices were not necessary due to Him going to the cross and being beaten, bleeding as well as dying for us upon it. This very act states that there was, is and will be sin that only His blood can wash away, but due to free-will those that ask Christ into their life’s must repent of their sin.
Now here is the key word: “repent” which means to turn away from. In other words stop doing. If you ask God into your life and you continue to live in sin and do nothing to end nor feel any need to stop sinning. Then per the Bible itself those that continue to be of the world, which sin is a part of, then they choose the world over God and are not even welcome in heaven.
Let’s allow that to sink in a moment.

In several passages within the Bible it is made clear that it is either, or, not both. It is either sin or God, it is either the world and those things of the world or God. It is either do as the Bible says and accept all that the Bible says, which includes what is and what is not a sin, or do whatever makes you happy.
It clearly states within the Bible that for those that choose God their life will not be an easy life. There will be pain suffering and sometimes as is now happening in the Middle East things much worse. Torture, beheading, crucifixions and other terrible things. This what you signed onto when you accepted Jesus.
If any promise you riches and happiness in this world they are of this world not God’s world and you should leave them to their happiness. For they have chosen their rewards here upon this earth in this life that will last nearly one hundred years. Those that truly follow Christ are promised their rewards in the eternal life, a life that will last billions of years, which sounds more interesting? My answer? The eternal life.

And they shall be cursed

The past few days I have been reading various parts of the Bible seeking insight into the changes that are tearing this nations to pieces. This nation has been on a downward trend since the 1970s and this is why.
When speaking to Jeremiah this was said within the Bible unto him:
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Now why is Jeremiah any different than any of us? Because he was chosen to be a prophet? To a degree yes, but that is not where I am heading with this. Read what is to follow:
Genesis 38: 8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. 9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. 10 And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.
If the very seeds of man are so important to God that he would kill a man dead for spilling them upon the ground then God knows that even the seed is a human being. This confirms that God knows us before we are even conceived. So any child within the womb IS a living human being and should be treated as such by all.
These verses led me to this verse as well:
Deuteronomy 27: 25 Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.
Since fetuses, babies are seen by God before conception that they are human beings, and innocent, and there are those receiving rewards to abort them and then to even cut those up for their body parts are seen as accursed.
Now how does that bring ruin upon this nation? For by allowing it to take place and not end it, it appears God is bring about a judgment upon this nation especially since through our taxes we are paying for the killing of innocent human beings.
Yesterday the Senate voted to end our taxes from being spent to end this curse. The vote should have been a simple vote 100 for de-funding instead it was 53-46 and one refusing to vote to protect his job since he was a Republican in what has turned into a Democratic state.
The “they” in the title of this post is us. All those in the United States of America that did not do all they could to end these horrors that have befallen the most innocent of all …… the unborn human being.
We are all cursed, repent to God and beg His forgiveness, but we must end that which is a curse in the eyes of God before He will forgive us.

Don’t get them confused

There is obedience and there is legalism.
Legalism is following rituals and formulas of behavior, a prime example of this is Catholicism.
Obedience is just that obeying, but what is there to obey? The Bible sets out a certain type of lifestyle that we are to live. This lifestyle is not legalistic it is as I already said, obedience. This is something that should be something you desire to do if you truly follow Christ for they are His own teachings.
He came here to fulfill the rules of obedience not to replace them, so if any says you do not have to follow the teaching of the Bible just because you have received the grace of God’s salvation through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, then they have either lied to you or have no true understanding of the Bible and its teachings.
You cannot live in sin and say you are a “Christian” period. Sure we all sin, but those that try to avoid it and feel remorse when they do it are striving to be obedient to God. Those that live in sin and care only for their own desires and happiness are disobedient. It is that simple.
