IT HAS TO END NOW

37

Abortion has to end now, pro life and right to life groups are for slow incrementalism.
The goal is to slowly change the laws state by state all the while change the hearts and minds of humans that abortion is wrong.
I completely understand this but logically this form of action makes no sense.

For one point of logic the right to kill an unborn child with the idea that the baby is not a real human these days is antiquated and out dated at best.

In an age of 3D sonograms and medical sonograms that show at 5 weeks (one month) this is a baby and we are still saying “yes you can kill that child”.
Interesting note do a web search on sonograms and just about every medical site uses the term baby not globs of cells.

It took one day in 1973 for unelected judges to legalize killing our offspring yet we are expected to be patient and allow smart guys using the political process to slowly change the law through court cases one at a time. In the meantime millions of babies are being killed each year, in this country alone over a billion world wide since 1973.

The logical option is to end abortion now, every state needs to end abortion now today not tomorrow.

So what if the federal government says its legal, each state can still end abortion now.

Plenty of states have laws that are contrary to federal law yet they choose not to follow or the Feds choose not to prosecute so the precedent has been set many years ago, we don’t need judges to tell our states what kind of killing is right and wrong we need to end abortion now.

The logic is today all states make abortion illegal and criminal.
Now that it is illegal then pro life, right to life and all the good men and women everywhere can start explaining why killing your child is wrong. Why life is important, we educate people we educate our children why life is better alive than dead.

It is easier to explain to somebody why somethings is wrong to do when it’s wrong to do it.

When something is against the law you have a precedence on your side, you have the the legal right to explain why it’s wrong, the morality of the issue makes more sense because the law states this is wrong.

The ethics and philosophy of the law makes more sense and scientifically it confirms that yes there is a baby in that belly yes there is life living here.

Pro life and pro choice cannot be a preference, it cannot be an opinion abortion has to end now we owe this to our children and to the human race.

Logic demands we end abortion now

THE EASY WAY

31

Time to go to war with Islam or with those evil sects that Islam breads”, this is the easy way for people, heads of states and leaders of countries to say yet most never attempt.

It’s a complete symptom of when people and  countries that deny God in order to maintain that it is fair and just for everyone all the while allowing sects of religions and beliefs that has no real regard to humanity just its own to grow and live unassimilated and in contempt of lives and countries that all the while have taken them in, fed them and protected them.

The easy way out is “let’s go to war” but how many times has mankind done this. How may people have shed blood over and over to beat back evil but never confront and deal with evil.

Because if they confront one form of evil they will have to eventually confront another from, a form that is much closer to home. A form of evil they themselves have taken in, fed and protected all the while that evil has had no regard for them and their families and is in contempt of their lives, their states and their countries

The hard way that few, if any want to try will requires people to admit secularism, humanism and naturalism and all the idols of their personal lives have failed. The hard way is for people to say “it’s time we repent” and start converting them to follow Jesus.

Romans 14:11 or it is written,“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”

YOU CAN’T HAVE GOD’S LOVE WITH YOUR HATE

image

Denzel Washington was the focus of a story in a Charisma Magazine article as he spoke at a graduation ceremony in which he stated “it is impossible to be grateful and hateful at the same time.”

Or is it, I completely understand what Mr. Washington gist was but he failed to see the full idea of his quote and that without Jesus one can be grateful for some and hateful for most.

It is possible to be grateful and hateful at the same time. Hitler, Stalin and Mao Zedong were grateful to be tyrants, grateful to be raciest and grateful to squander other peoples money yet hateful enough to take the lives of millions, to have contempt of God and human life.

As a professed Christian it is impossible to love God with all your heart and mind and still be hateful to your neighbor.

A Christian cannot balance the two, a person that does this is lying to oneself and to God and most importantly is failing the two commandments set by Jesus. Matthew 22: 37-40

A non Christian cannot show biblical gratefulness and practice hatefulness without being morally bankrupt. Just like trying to serve two masters eventually you will bow down to one master then look away or kill the other.

Without the exclusivity of Jesus Christ and our unconditional love to him we cannot truly love our neighbor. We cannot understand true love without truly loving God first.

CAUTION BAD PEOPLE IN HELL

unnamed

It’s interesting to me how now doctrines and theology constantly debate on how bad or not so bad hell will be.
We have doctrine that uses a annihilation that those going to hell will just stop being, Satan will bear the sins and those who do believe in Christ; where that is scripture I have no clue.

I get it Hell is scary, I saw a blog from a fellow Christian blogger that wanted Christians to stop scaring the hell out of people, is that opposite of let us put hell in people nicely?

The meme that goes if you need the threat of eternal torture to be a good person you are not a good person has validity to it and I would agree humans are not good, it takes God to be good.

Realistically when was the last time you heard your pastor preach on hell, when was the last time you heard a megachurch pastor preach on hell. When was the last time you attended a Biblestudy that studied hell. I have rarely heard any pastor or church leader spend much time on the subject of hell but every liberal Christian seems to think it happens way too much and is afraid it will scare the unbeliever away.

Openbible.info counts about 100 references on hell in the ESV translation of the Holy Bible. So hell is in the scriptures it does exsist and it is a part of our lives whether we want it or not.

In Matthew Jesus talks or uses hell 17 times, and describes it 8 times as being a furnace of fire and weeping and gnashing of teeth, eternal torture.

So why are some churches and Christians afraid to talk about hell maybe the same reason they want people to stop judging and have some tolerance for sin.

Not sure about you but you but hell scares me strait, yes I sin daily but daily I repent. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Now I’m not saying that the message of hell should be the focal point of the Gospel. Salvation and Gods free gift of grace that he gives us is always the front and center subject to new believers but we ought not to leave hell out of the full message.

Understanding why God created hell and why he sent his son Jesus is important to know and understand. As a believer hell never inters my mind, getting closer to Jesus and trying to share that faith with others is always my intentions.

The unbeliever on the other hand knows there is a God, they might try and convince themselves there is no God but it is written on their hearts there is a God but even with that the heart can deny the mind. One wonders why Jesus talked about hell if it was not an important part of knowing God personally.

We can only conjecture why God created a hell but scriptures states it is real, Jesus talks about the realness of hell and the Holy Spirit continues to talk about it in the New Testament. Hell is real and I believe we are doing a disservice to our fellow man by just pushing it under the carpet like it was a bad dream.

HOW FAR WILL YOU TAKE SIN?

Hugh Hefner waves the white flag ending nudity in the long publication of Playboy magazine while Miley Cyrus gets ready to perform an all nude concert.

Playboy magazine recognizes pornography has engulfed our society so much so Playboy magazine and it’s so called classy nudity is no longer enough to keep the boys happy, a few clicks and you see way beyond what Playboy can offer and best of all or not it is free.

Miley Cyrus who is determined to be the Madonna of her generation plans to perform 6 concerts completely nude along with the band and the audience.
2 It’s not enough to one up the sex drugs and rock and roll culture Miley needs to take it to the next level but how far is too far and will it ever be too far. Galatians 5:19-21 those who fill their hearts and mind with this will not inherit the Kingdom of God

Reminiscent of the days of anything goes punk rock bands maybe but if Cyrus pulls this off it will trump the deviant norm.

So Miley, the band and the audience enjoy a clothing free concert, what will be next? Will this be as far as Miley and her entourage dare or will the fans, the sponsors and the promoters demand more.

More nudity, add live sex, drugs and some rock n roll and we have achieved a full live on stage pornography show way beyond anything Hugh and the boys at Playboy could have ever imagined.

The conclusion to this is simple; sin if not avoided will continue to grow. Proverbs 6:16-19 states there are six things the Lord hates and one being feet that make haste to run to evil why you ask because it grows larger and corrupts.

Hugh Hefner and Miley Cyrus are lying to you and your children another one of those six sins the Lord hates. They are lying to you and your children that casual sex, drugs, and pornography does not exploit nor destroy people.

Pornography is fine, sex drugs don’t matter nothing will happen. Would you let your son hang with Miley and would you let your daughter date Heff; if not why not, are they not role models; do what they stand for you stand for as well? Philippians 4:8  Turn from sin stand with truth. 

CULTURE WAR

culture-war

The culture war cannot be won with money power and votes, it is not a political stage even if the counter culture would have you to believe it is. Culture has to be changed through first the mind then the heart. It has to make sense not to want to kill unborn children or not to promote pornography to our young then it has to have and emotional connection to why those thing are wrong. The mind knows it is wrong the emotions keep it from happening.

This is why liberalism uses the political and judicial arenas to win in culture issues. Liberals politicize everything from God to cartoons, they use emotions to advance their agenda based on pure feelings alone. There is rarely any substance to liberal agendas when it comes to culture advancements. If they cannot win with emotions and feelings they then skip to the judicial arena to attempt the win. Instead of a conversation that they know cannot be won intellectually they go straight to making their issue law of the land.

Legalization of abortion, legalization of pornography, same sex marriage and coming to a city near you loss of rights to practice your religion with the redefining  of our 1st amendment.

Abortion used scare tactics of unsafe and putting women at risk for trying to terminate life. It is anti choice of the individual if they cannot terminate their child yet the individual growing inside is never given a choice. The logical ideas of counselling and adoption are hardly heard of. It used a jaded interpretation of the right to privacy then demand to be funded by tax payers.

Pornography used free speech, the right to publish the act of demeaning humans both male and female of all ages. Everyone does it or what I do behind close doors in my business even if it effects my mind and heart down the road. It started with pornography in marked theaters to allowing it on paid TV channels like HBO and Showtime. It’s slowly downgraded to soft core porn and then to viewer discretion advised.

The pornography industry never tells us about the broken marriages, the disillusioned ideas of what love and sex is. It’s never thought twice that a new generation of young people can watch strangers do anything and everything to themselves and each other with a click of the mouse.

Same sex marriage, we have a right to have the same benefits as regular couples not understanding the definition of benefits. We love each other after all love wins not really understanding what the true description of marriage and love is. Matthew 19: 3-6 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

You will bake us a cake or take our wedding photos or we will sue you. They never tell you that maybe its not about true love maybe its about redefining morality. Judgement has a sting to it so maybe we make or redefine a law that says you cannot judge me anymore. Destruction of a society and an institution that had purpose is at hand but its my right because love wins.

All cases used law to enforce their existence because sound logic trumped emotional feeling every time is was argued. Mark 7:21 “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts”. Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?”

Next on the agenda will most likely redefining the 1st amendment. Practicing ones religion that offends another will be deemed illegal. Speaking out against ones concept of immorality will be deemed illegal or hate speech. Second hand grace does not ask for repentance it only condones bad behavior as long as you believe in God.

If we are to win or maintain a civil culture Christians and conservatives have to start working together. We can agree to disagree on minor politics but we must unite on rule of law, morality,  ethics and our philosophies need to be similar if not the same otherwise the divisiveness will pull us apart and this liberal and socialistic culture will continue to dominate our world.

We have to live what we believe to be true and teach it to the young, we have to be different from the world and show the success that being different is not only worth being different but it is truth worth living.

THE FALL

Reuters-Bill-Cosby-Sweatshirt

For those of us who grew up from the mid 90’s and beyond most had a funny face in their heart when actor/comedian Bill Cosby came on the TV.

Cosby once an icon of humor and family values could do no wrong.
When the accusations started that Cosby had drugged and assaulted people I can only imagine what crossed everyone’s mind.

Some thought it was an attack of the Left by liberals that were trying to sabotage Cosby for speaking out against President Obama others just thought no way and finally the truth comes out.

So how do we explain this, as a conservative it tears at you that a once family values man was half a lie. As a Christian I don’t see disgust but I do see disappointment, but with God’s grace can good come out of this?

The atheist might view Cosby as basic human corruption, nothing new here we would maybe expect this from all humans some will act and some will refrain that is just the way some of us turn out.

The Hindu or Easter philosophy enacts the uncontrollable act of karma in which the offender will have no real knowledge or understanding of their punishment just that their death will possibly reincarnate something vile, no chance to escape no forgiveness in sight.

How do we explain this to the person that sees this as a total loss in humanity? I’m sure there are some out there that have been hurt by this news.

Cosby’s family for one has been majorly impacted and there are those that would view this as a complete devastation, why would somebody do this? How can we turn this around for God?

Well for one this shows us we are all fallible without God.
Without Jesus hypocrisy is the norm and it becomes you.

Mr. Cosby showed the world that people are not always what they seem to be,we advertise one thing and do another. But with Jesus this is not so, Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

Romans 16:18 defines the Cosby situation well the problem is how can a person acquires these negative attributes?For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own [a]appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.”

If we were to put our faith and trust in God could this be the remedy? When people ask or say where is this going who can we trust? Deuteronomy 31:8 “The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.

As much as the Cosby situation is alarming and disturbing we can use this to tell others that trusting in humans will always lead to disappointment while trusting in God will never disappoint.

SYMBOLISM OVER SUBSTANCE

confederate-flag-1-1400x650

Some of us out here in the west may feel the lasted issue with the confederate flag banning to be small but I don’t feel it is. There is more here and southern life is being touted down this is not a good thing.

It holds a larger meaning to both the people who live and love there states along with southern pride and concept of common sense is being trampled on in the name of emotional symbolism.

The symbolism is the confederate flag and how some people feel the true meaning is racism, while others look at the substance of the real problem and know banning a flag will solve nothing.

The real issue with racism is sin and taking way objects or banning flags might pacify some it does nothing to address the actual problem of race relations.

The flag itself is a historical references and symbol to southern pride, rebellion of then the current federal government and the freedom of states and their peoples right to succeed or leave the federal union.

Unfortunately for the south slavery was an important part of their economic development and without slaved labor they would be inferior to the industrial North.

By no means is slavery moral or ethical and not every person who lived in the southern states owned or condoned slavery but many condoned the action of succession and leaving the current union.

In 1992 a Clinton Gore presidential campaign button was designed around the confederate flag, now did this mean the Clintons were trying to sure up all the white racist votes?

flag

Nonsense, being from two southern states the Clinton Gore campaign was showing their southern pride, if they garnered a few extra votes from white power so be it (only joking).

The hysterical and emotional frenzy of the symbolic nature of the confederate flag could be dealt with in two ways. Let the frenzy go on hoping eventually the hysteria will die down and go away and by this time next year no one remembers.

Another way is for our leaders spiritual, academic and political to take control and educate the symbolism and the substance of what the root of the issue is about.

Although thus far a few spiritual leaders have weighed in on the issue we have seen little or no academic presence and the political leadership has been very poor but is that surprising.

Political leaders will only address this issue based on the path of least resistance; they will take the side of which democracy complains the most and do their best not to insult both the symbolic emotional side and the substance side.

To the politician both sides are votes to win from so taking one side or another is a no win game thus making this into a game of winning votes not morally siding with the truth.

This is call this is bad democracy and its at its worst, people need leaders to make decisions based on a republic not a democracy in this kind of setting.

Bad democracy is majority rules regardless the outcome based on self interest. It’s a democracy of many but of selfish interest, either from the many or condoned by the leadership for their own self interest.

While academia sits on its laurels history is being misguided by hysteria. The one institution that should know the soul of the confederate flag says nothing.

The root of the problem is sin, racism is sin and no symbolic gesture to ban or permanent removal of a flag will fix the substance issue of sin.

Politicians tend to avoid sin as a word, finding a good statesman in this day is hard to come by.

If anything politics will run for the aid of science to help define sin in a more politically correct way without using the Bible or God, it’s rarely done but give it time our president is giving it a try right now.

This leaves our spiritual and academic leaders to calm the waters. We are in need of spiritual leaders to confront the root of the sustenance which is sin.

They need to offer the service of dealing with this sin and most of all the healing act of repentance of the sin.

The academics can offer truth in history which should have been done at the grade school level all the way through college.

The combination of calling out the substance of racism as sin with the historical value of truth defining what the substance of the symbolic nature of the confederacy was.

What can the common sense person do, unfortunately the common man is losing his and her grip in this world but stay strong seek and study truth in God.

Study and know the history of this nation. This will not be the last time history will be attacked by symbolic nonsense so be prepared.

2 Timothy 4 2-3 ( preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with [a]great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,)

THE LEFT AND POPE FRANCIS’S CONUNDRUM

pope francis

The national Review released a nice article more or less better defining Pope Francis’s stance on climate change and economical equality leaving the Leftist environmental, economic extremist and the Pope in somewhat of a conundrum if you ask me.

Pope Frances further defines his belief in what it means to embrace climate change and economic justice in which one comes to the conclusion that Pope Francis feels they are connect, it’s a good size article that needs to be read so I urge you to do so.  The Pope’s Encyclical, at Heart, Is About Us, Not Trees and Snail Darters

Pope Francis over the last few years had made statements that have been surly noted as communist in notion, climate change is the new communism if you don’t feel that way look at the old communism or in that fact both China, North Korea and Vietnam and see the defining attributes they have in common with climate change. Note that climate change is nothing new to the Left, when the Berlin wall fell western communism just found a new place to hide.

Economic Equality has been a topic as well by Francis, from the National Catholic Reporter Carol Glatz reports that the Popes idea of faith and giving go hand in hand something we would all like to see people like Joel Osteen and TD Jakes read and practice.

The issue with this concept is it does not fully understand or fix the poor just that we need to become poor to have faith. I’m always quick to go back on Matthew chapter 26 verse 11.

Now Jesus was explaining more than just the poor to his disciples but it does tells us an undeniable truth, that we will never rid the poor nor the sick they will always be with us. No giving until it hurts will change that, we are not to hoard our money but I don’t think Jesus expects us to go broke trying to fix something that cannot be fixed.

This lays the conundrum for both the Pope and the Left; how fare will they take each other before they are forced to abandon each another on difference of ideology and yes their ideology splits.

Now mind you this is just opinion and conviction from Pope Francis, whether he sees it or not he is embracing communism with his economic and environmental ideology. In my opinion the Pope does see it but wants to change the concept of socialism to his brand or what I would say the true brand of socialism.

Socialism was tried once and it failed when Adam and Eve sinned and God threw them out of the garden. After that socialism has tried and tried as it might, it has even employed the government aka communism and that still has not worked and will never work because of mans inherent will to sin.

I get what Pope Francis is wanting, he and I would make great neighbors but no way in heaven would I vote for him to office.

The conundrum that Pope Francis faces is that yes the Left is all for this, they love what Francis is preaching until he said that being economically equal and environmentally conscious means we must be Pro Life and not with just newborns but with everyone one and thing on this earth and that is where the ideology splits

This is a must and the Pope knows this and has to push this otherwise he loses his Christian credibility. Equality means everyone, young and old regardless of how weak or strong, ignorant or inelegant we must have Pro Life otherwise all this is a lie.

The conundrum for the Left is they know this is a lie and they themselves don’t necessarily live this lie. Don’t get me wrong there are a few uneducated leftist hippies out there that attempt it but few will live it to the end. The educated Left truly does not have equality in mind just power and ignorance and Pro Life cannot be a part of this social experiment.

To the Left Pro Life cannot gel with communism because if makes not only the individual but a government accountable for their misgivings. Yes the government could mandate no abortion, it is not an option, make it illegal and it will care for the unwanted child and the elderly but that opens up a can of who will pay for this and again accountability becomes in play, judgment, sin there is no irrelevance in a world that embraces life.

I believe the Pope would say we the people and the churches of the people will take care of these children and take care of the elderly that have served our society something that use to be and has been lost with an ever intrusive government. So one can see if we allow the government to take care or enforce private organizations to do their bidding the society looses freedom and free will.

The Pope’s communism demands that not only people be accountable but the government is as well and that won’t happen because again we are inherently evil and seek the best way out not God’s way in which is always best but is only from a free will based on a freedom he gives us not the government.

Yes while the Popes communism seems like a wonderful utopia where everybody loves everything it is not only impossible but it no longer allows for freedom and free will. A government cannot enforce free will and freedom it can only protect it.

Again socialism in the Garden of Eden would have worked if sin was not committed, there would be no need for communism because people would be responsible themselves and not seek to cause their neighbor to stumble. Government would have never been in need because with no sin people will not seek to kill, steal and destroy.

Pope Francis’s utopia requires communism because he knows the heart of man, and government is needed to police that heart. Where he fails is his understanding mans inherent nature and he forgets the heart of man. He forgets its man that is the government that will police the heart and actions of man; see the problem it just spins leaving a devastation of corruption, payoffs, crony capitalism, and abuse of power.

The conundrum is this, will Pope Francis’s remarks on Pro Life turn off the Leftist that is needed to enact this communism he dreams of. Will the Left leave the Pope because his communism is not their communism?

Regardless of his social and political clout I believe the Left will sneakingly distance themselves from Pope Francis because of this one disagreement being too great to sacrifice their ideology of relativism.

This is a dangerous path for Pope Francis to travel on, time will only tell if the snares of liberalism will be too much for society to handle even Pope Francis.

CAN WE DEFINE OUR OWN MORALITY?

godsway

Can we define our own morality?

This was my question of the day about two weeks ago on my Facebook page; it did not get any takers for opinions.

One either it was too deep of a question or it was one of those no duh questions but regardless it is something that people sometimes do.

My answer is no; we cannot define our own morality only God can define morality and he already defined what it is not and how we stay away from immorality.

Now one might say then “where are those definitions and guidelines and if you say they are Biblical are we then supposed to read the Bible every time we are faced with a moral dilemma”?

Well it would not hurt to do some reading now and then but one does not really have to go too far and read Exodus 20 and you get God’s definition of what he expects from us, they are called the Ten Commandments and they pretty much cover it all.

You might also skim over to Matthew 22: 37-40 37 “And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the great and [o]foremost commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’40 On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”

With these two commandments we follow all the Ten Commandments in Exodus and any other rules and laws that are defined by man.

Understanding we are all sinners and we will always fall short that is a given and to make things more interesting we live with unbelievers that sometimes don’t see eye to eye with the Ten Commandments and Jesus’ 2 commandments.

We live in a world that sometimes likes to make up and pass new laws that hide or make the wrong look and feel right.

What makes us viable in this world of sin is that God gives us Grace, if we accept his son Jesus in our lives then we are forgiven.

We are not worthy of his grace but it is a free gift all he asks is we follow him but we cannot define our own morality and toss God’s moral law aside and expect grace afterwords.

 He will convict your heart and he will do that because he loves you 1 Thessalonians 1:4-6. The question is will you look, listen and know that conviction when it happens and what will you do when it comes?
