CONVERSATIONS 1

img_1293

Had a conversation with a liberal Christian the other day that started out over global warming. Liberals are convinced humans are the cause of ice melting in the Antarctic.
My goal was to make a point with a Biblical statement by asking “I wonder what God has planned for his creation next?”, noting that I do not believe humans can destroy or alter God’s creation without his guidance.
My reply was questioning my liberal opponent that our free will has caused the ice to melt ( bogus I know considering even science has proven that the ice caps in the north are growing not shrinking.)
My reply back was a question “our total free will or our creature free will”.
Creature free will is our instinctive components that we humans have based on our nature that God gave us. It is the will that allows us to not drive 100 mph during 4 O clock traffic in downtown Los Angeles. It is the will that drives parents to teach their kids about sharing and the consequences of being selfish; creature free will is the everyday will we have getting up in the morning and going to work being a good steward or cutting in line at the checkout in the supermarket.
But God will often restrain and direct our total free will. Much of the time
God has to do this, he has to sometimes direct our path to him because our nature will not allow us to do the right thing much less seek God part of the time. Pslam 32:8
My liberal opponent was slightly correct on the nature of our free will to always put us in error although I’m pretty sure he really does not believe this because after all he’s a liberal but if he did believe this I believe he would have been correct because our freedom to be self reliant will always lead us to error because of our nature. Romans 3:10
I know some people hate to hear this but understanding human nature requires us to admit we are fallen people we are in error in the sight of God Jeremiah 17:9. Without a moral standard there is no way of knowing truth and no way of knowing error without a standard of a moral truth.
Truth and morality was not manmade nor did evolved it required a creator, a God that would create a standard for us to know and follow in the natural, some call the nature law St. Paul reiterates this in Romans 2:14-15 it is written on our hearts.
Yes we humans have a will to do error but we also have a will to repent and ask for forgiveness. To say we don’t know good or to think we are nothing but good is to not know truth nor is it to know our nature. When we are right with and in good standing with God we can trust he will guide us and direct or path.  2 Thessalonians 3:3

CLIMATE CHANGE HAS LITTLE ROOM FOR ATHEIST

16

We might think atheism and secularism as a minor force with strong arms today trying to end Christianity as we know it.

Atheist claim they don’t believe in any religion but for reasons that can be debated they seem to pay particular attention to Christianity trying to discredit it, they’re more anti theist than just people that claim not to believe in a God or the supernatural and leave it at that.

It is my thoughts that liberalism cannot at this point in time allow atheism to totally destroy the idea of God from our heart, our minds yes but the idea of a God must be allowed to live in the heart of man. Romans 12:2

The reason being is atheism for the most part is a leftist point of view. Yes there maybe some conservative atheist out there but they would be more economically conservative rather than socially conservative and those people that identify themselves as atheist rarely identify with the same moral ideology as people that do believe in God or Christianity. Note both can but most of the time there is normally a difference of opinion on a moral law code.

Conservatives and Christian conservatives in general think similar and believe similar. They tend to share values much the same and the embrace moral and ethical values much the same.

The leftist agenda is contrary to the conservative agenda particularly in climate change and global warming. This idea is not universally anti Christian as we see a few Christians take up the leftist cause of radical environmentalism.

Most Christians that subscribe to radical environmentalism can be defined as liberal leaning and therefore are sometimes dismissed as legitimate  believers in true Christianity but make no mistake those Christians that do endorse radical environmentalism such as Pope Francis have a wide following in the leftist community.

This is where I have wrote before it’s a fine line for leaders like Sir Francis to court radical environmentalism but being that said it is also a fine line for leftist to court Christians that embrace this idea as well. 1 John 2:15

By no means is Pope Francis an advocate of abortion something leftist embrace with open arms as a rite of passage. For leftist  hope to convince as many people as possible to believe in radical man made climate change they need all the help they can. If they cannot legislate it down our throats then having the aid of top Christians leaders to preach radical climate change in the pulpit is a plus which is why they cannot fully condone the actions of radical atheism that is anti theist.

To the atheist that believe in no God, believes in random chance, believes in subjective morality they in principle should not care one way or another if man made climate change is real or just junk science..

In the words of Jeff Durbin pastor of Apologia church in Tempe Arizona “So what”, so what if it’s man made or not it does not stop the random chance of happening.

So what if the polar bears run out of ice, survival of the fittest regardless if man made carbon from cars that melt ice or if three super volcanos erupt and ash covers the earth and kills one quarter of the earth species, it happens. In reality what happens is so what; if naturalism is real then life will go on, government regulations won’t change that.

Leftist who rely on radical environmentalism for power cannot have this, they need people to be behind them and to believe in the cause and while many atheist won’t buy this idea of a “so what” reality they should in order to be true to their beliefs.

Liberal leftist may just need the belief in God to continue and having the aid of Christians that believe God puts man in total control of his creation is a win. They need leaders like Rev Mitchell C Hescox that have doubt in what God can do to infiltrate the minds and emotions of their followers and a total disbelief in God cannot be on the agenda at this time.

While both atheist and like minded liberals would love to see the end of a Biblical moral law the goal might be to rid God from people’s minds but keep the notion of a God that is good, environmentally gentle and emotionally illogical in our hearts.

MONDAY THOUGHTS 1

monday1

Greetings this Monday; some of us decompressing over the weekend depending on what we did. I guess the big news of the week going through the weekend has been the visit of Pope Francis. He has gone home now but as Monday arises I can see a division of both Catholics and Protestants, liberals and conservatives over Sir Francis’s visit to my country.

I can only offer my opinion as to why this is, why one man can divide when such a visit should be unity. First to my Catholic friends there is no disrespect to the Catholic doctrine on my part I’m only giving my assessment of Francis’s visit. I know Catholics will say they are not the cause of such division and I also know Pope Francis has an agenda and I’m sure has no plans to change that agenda.

The reason why there is and maybe continue to be a division is simply Pope Francis is a socialist and he brought his Marxist ideas with him. If you don’t think Sir Francis is a socialist you need to lift your head out of the sand.

I personally felt if you get a chance to speak in front of Congressmen and Senators and you are a professed man of God you need to preach the Gospel not preach your political agenda. Open the speech up with prayer for one; condemn abortion and the funding of groups that would sell murdered body parts it’s not enough to just say all life is precious when Planned Parenthood is buying  Lamborghini’s off the organs of our unborn children.

A statement was made that Pope Francis’s visit to America was a slap in conservative’s faces and I have to agree with that, it’s also a big letdown of one person not preaching the Gospel.

I know Catholics by in large love this man so do liberals and that alone sets off red flags in my direction. What is most disheartening to me was a few comments I made on twitter this week and the comments it received by what I considered as good conservative men of God that happened to be Catholic. It broke my heart to hear such comments I will not go into details and who left the comments but if you know what the word idolatry means there is a big concern here for me and for Christians that praise one man might need to do a personal heart to God’s heart check on themselves.

The other big news item of course is Donald Trump, a few of my aunts and uncles have been out my way for a visit this week asked me what I thought of Mr. Trump and my statement was “I wish he would leave and let people like Cruz and Jindal takeover”

If you think Trump is the GOP saving grace you could be right but I don’t think he is. Like Jeb Bush said on Fox News (no I’m not a Bush fan) check back with me in two months and see where we are, Responding to Trumps popularity.

I agree with Jeb I really don’t think Trump can debate well. I mean watch him in a debate, he calls people names, says I can do better than you, almost childlike responses.

Is Trump better than any democrat well yeah that’s a no brainer. It’s also a testament to a candidate that gets into it with Trump like what Rubio has been doing, shows me Rubio needs to drop out he is way too inexperienced to be running a campaign as is Trump. As a Christian Trump is all over the place, I like how he has pandered to the Christian GOP group but I’m not sold on if he really knows who Jesus is.

Boehner resigns yippy it about time don’t let actually let the door hit you as you leave you have been an embarrassment to the GOP and have done nothing to further the advancement of America. When fools like Harry Reid say it’s a loss for Boehner to leave that is when you know it’s time for fools like Boehner to leave, McConnell needs to follow right behind him.

These are my thoughts this Monday feel free to add your own and enjoy the week.

 

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.

LEGAL ATROCITIES

LEGAL ATROCITIES

rowvwade

This cartoon was posted by a Facebook friend the other day and I thought it was quite interesting since I follow both the abortion and communism issues fairly close.

What this cartoon does fail to show is the number of abortions worldwide making the number much more staggering at 1.7 billion from 1973 to 2013, 40 years of society that allows death based on a lie.

I find the difference between Nazism, communism and row V wade is Nazi’s and the Communist party’s actions were so brutal and in your face with their philosophy of killing and who they killed that they failed to convince the world this was a good or acceptable idea.

 Progressive leftist who are now the new communist party without the sickle and hammer are able to hide the killings of 57.5 millions of humans from the world by killing them where nobody could see them in the womb then convincing society a lie that this is a right to allow women the control over their bodies.

In reality women always have been in control of their own bodies but legalized abortion allowed people to kill without anyone viewing the actual murder.

Progressives now are in the process to brainwash people that this is a much needed procedure that will cure population control, end global warming and fix economic inequality.

If we look deep into the progressive arsenal we find communism and atheism both follow this creed to have population control, promote global environmental extremism and economic equality.

This is why I feel any Christian that tries and walk the line of economic equality or environmental extremism are walking down a path of destruction filled with abortion, socialism and secularism and find a direct conflict with the Christians faith.

For a Christian to remain true to God’s word and walk with Jesus they cannot compromise with God’s morality and ethics otherwise they risk watering down God’s word and Jesus’ life with immoral and inaccurate content so as to be relevant or equal with the today’s issues.

If you think comparing Nazism and communism with Row v Wade is over the top through one thought or another think about this. Everything Hitler, Stalin did in their country was legal.

ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY #3

ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY JANUARY 19TH

It’s Monday again and time for some more Illogical and absurd articles from main stream media. Somewhat of a slow news week so the progressives kind of pushed the throttle down on a few of these articles rehashing some old ideas that they would love us to pay for or make illegal.

First up from the Huffington Post “Charlie Hebdo Editor Slams News Organizations for Not Publishing their Cartoons” Now the gist here is editor Gerard Biard feels that if the main stream media really is free speech they should have reported and showed their cartoons in Charlie Hebdo in a solidarity move to show the free world is not afraid of terrorism.

charlie-hebdo-frontpage

Ok let’s understand who the main stream media is, they make up of cowards that shout from a glass door. Main stream media has no problem standing up for freedom of speech and expression when they know it won’t get them killed. They are not afraid of Christians or Buddhist because they know Christians won’t retaliate but with Islam they are afraid.

Biard states every time they draw a cartoon of Mohammad or God they defend freedom of speech and I say no you don’t. Every time you draw a cartoon blaspheming God or any other religious symbol you are doing just that blaspheming a symbol that somebody holds important.

If you have no believes in anything then it makes it easy for you to make the statement your defending freedom of speech but look at it this way. If I were to tell unflattering embellishments about you or your family you might get offended you might even try and sue me.

Charlie Hebdo is a vulgar magazine at times, I’m not going to storm the doors and shoot your entire cartoonist but you insult my faith at times and I see nothing but insults not freedom in what you do.

Next article from Time “Pope Francis Opposes Contraceptives During Address of Millions in Philippines” I’m mainly mention this article by Time on the basis of I’m following the Pope due to his embracing of climate change and environmentalism which is nothing short than communism and communism embraces population control.

Pope Francis waves from the popemobile after leading a Mass at Rizal Park in Manila

Progressives and leftist love it when Pope Francis preaches about climate change and compromising on evolution but they hate it when people preach about birth control something very important to the Catholic faith.

This is where progressives despise Catholics and Christians for even thinking people take reproductive responsibility. Time keeps it tame but doe quote one person here to dig at the Popes stand on birth control.

They quote Jun Chura a former street child “Many terrible things happened to (street children) like drugs and prostitution,” said a former street child named Jun Chura. “Why is God allowing such things to happen? And why are there only very few people helping us?”

My response to Chura is I might ask you the same question, why are you allowing this to happen. You see the Pope and the Catholic/Christian church do not want to punish people by taking away their contraceptive tools they want you to take responsibility and follow God’s will.

Even if you can financially afford ten children does not mean you have ten children, can you emotionally afford ten children. Psalms 127-128, God blesses one that has children but he does require us to walk with him to be successful. Basically this, if you’re not willing to fear and walk with God then you just might limit your success.

The blog from Slate “French Government: Protesters Don’t Understand Our Values (But We’ll Imprison People for Speech)” is kind of interesting on the account that not only do Muslims and Islam do not get French values but nor does Slate and nor do they get values and freedom.

 protest

France has some interesting laws that are very free when it comes to speech but very strict when speech and expression becomes treason. France allows freedom of speech to a degree but when it become treasonous it can levy a stiff penalty in jail time something America seems not to practice thus is why Slate probably just does not get it.

The issue is Islam has no clue what true freedom is, both the Islamist practicing countries have little or no freedom and the religion its self has no freedom either.

Most progressive’s lack the understanding of freedom and values as well, feeling a government entitled society is freedom they just do not get free will and rugged individualism and their value system has no value.

The French are trying to play sides, embracing European socialism and still trying to stay as a free state can be quite complicated and will yield a very unfair society.

US NEWS and World Reports “U.S. Stands Alone on Lack of Paid Leave” published this blog on how the U.S. just won’t increase its taxes on the American People and pay for mothers to stay home with their children.

paid

At this point pretty much if you’re a mother or father you have to option to stay at home for a few months of bonding time without pay.

Those of you that can afford it do so, some have special insurance that pay the whole time and some don’t so they have to come back to work early seems unfair.

Should not a mom and a dad bond with their new born child why are the American people not willing to be taxed enough so all moms and dads at least the moms be paid to stay home?

You have to put yourself in the eyes of the employer; I know that evil corporation you work for that just makes tons of money off your sweat. It’s very hard on a company to have to replace somebody for a short time then give that position back.

The concept of free trade and independence is lost if a private business cannot do anything without the federal or state permission.

There is a compromise that our government could make but wont. If staying home and bonding with your child is so important and I believe it is as far as the mother is concerned then why not lower taxes.

Lower income tax maybe end the income tax as we know it, lower gas tax, lower property tax make it so a two parent family can afford for only one to work.

I know that does not work for everyone since everyone makes different pay something progressives would love to change but that’s called communism.

For the most part it would work if we lowered taxes so families could take home more money and have one parent stay home nurturing the children I know it worked for our family.

It’s easy for progressives to cry on this issue saying it’s not fair but their hypocrisy is huge on family values.

They want taxes to increase so both parents have to work, use that tax money so both can stay at home for a short while and bond then send that child to government daycare and public school.

It just seems smarter to lower taxes and have the parent stay home and bond and develop their child instead of having the tax payer do it.

Solon atheist goes all out in “Bill Maher is right about religion: The Orwellian ridiculousness of Jesus, and the truth about moral progress” This is a very long and tedious blog that hates all over Christianity again fear of Islam goes into play and a double standard is used but the writer Michael Shermer does attack the Jews and Mormons as well but I’m sure in his mind anyone that uses the Bible or Biblical ideas is bad.

2 Seat Interview: Bill Maher and Ralph Nader, Author, Unstoppable Panel left to right: Andrew Ross Sorkin - Financial Columnist, New York Times, Co - Anchor, CNBC’s “Squawk Box” ; Doug Heye -  Fmr. Comm. Director, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Fmr

Basically Bill Maher is never really quoted but for those of you that don’t know Maher has said that God is a serial killer in the Old Testament.

Both Maher and Shermer don’t back any historical data up but take Biblical text out of order it’s mainly Shermer’s lack of understanding of Old Testament Biblical history of Israel and the tribes and societies that surrounded the Jews.

When you deal with atheists that bring this kind of hate to the table it’s like talking to a brick wall. They use this double standard to hate on Biblical belief and Christianity because they are afraid of Islam.

Christians are an easy target because true Christians practice peace through Christ something Maher and Shermer conveniently don’t read in the New Testament or even mention in their rants.

The truth is Maher and Shermer hate Jews and Christians because we try and live Gods truth, no we are not perfect we make mistakes but God forgives us something that Shermer I would bet hates to admit.

In Shermer’s eyes Christians live this smug holier than thou hypocritical life and they can’t stand that. If he really knew the truth and that is I don’t always live a holy life and yes I’m a hypocrite at times but every day I ask for forgiveness and every day God forgives me

“Meet the Right-Wing Judge Who Just Screwed over the People Taking Care of Your Grandma” From Alternet the same magazine that is willing to expose this judge but wont print Charlie Hebdo. This story is not about a judge but about a union that wants its workers paid more simple as that.

Nursing-home-photo

This story is near to me because I work in health care and at one time I worked in nursing/convalescent homes. I can say to you without a doubt the people that work in these nursing homes do not get paid much but the work is not that technical.

Whether you agree with this judge’s decision or not I will say this, if you really are concern for your loved ones you need to pay for their care because government insurance and that is who is paying for the majority of these people does not pay well meaning the nursing homes don’t get reimbursed well from social security or Medicare.

If you want the best care for your loved ones you’re going to have to pay out of pocket. I know that seems odd all those years of paying in to social security and it does not take care of your parents well welcome to the real world FDR was wrong and your loved ones fell for it.

Finally from Common Dreams “Supreme Court Could Settle Marriage Equality Fight Once and For All” Yes a few people that are not elected and have a job for life will decide on the not marriage equality but decide on the dismantling of God’s union between a man and a woman.

This is why voting is important; all these judges were appointed by a president and allowed in by our representatives that we voted for.

do_not_deny

When it comes to the defense in marriage I use Matthew 19: 4-6 and I refer you to 1 Corinthians 7: 1-16.

The best hope at this time is for the Supreme Court to make this a states rights issue something Jeb Bush used to get out of stating whether he is either for or against the homosexual movement.

The big question then will be if a gay marriage that is legal in California will it still be good in say like Oklahoma. Hugh Hewitt made a good statement on his radio show a few days ago stating that you may have a legal conceal carry permit in Texas but that permit is not valid in New York.

No matter what happens the fall and decline of the defense of marriage is here but it’s not the end. Abortion is legal but we still fight and pray for that issue daily and this issue is no different.

END OF THE WEEK JANUARY 3

END OF THE WEEK THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SAME OF IT ALL

End of the week in January once again and has the news calmed down well kind of kind of not. Our president made a move that radio talk show host Glen Beck feels that it shows where president Obama’s heart is on Islam.

President Obama basically did not attend nor did he send anyone of high ranking to the Paris Unity rally and some ask why. Beck figures that Obama feelings are there is no future for anyone that disrespects the profit Mohammad; he made this a UN speech in 2012.

Nor Beck and I are saying president Obama is condoning the raid and killings at Charlie Hebdo but with this philosophy one is not shocked that this type of raid and killing would happen thus why go to event that disrespected his faith or send anyone for all that matters. Regardless of the fact it was in my opinion disrespectful of the President not to go or send the Vice President after all that’s what VP’s are for.

The other new item that I have been following close has been Pope Francis embracing climate change. You may or may not think Pope Francis is a big thing because you’re not Catholic but believe me this is a big issue that affects us all. The Pope is the biggest religious spokesperson in the world and when he speaks he not only speaks for Catholics but for Christians everywhere.

It is my opinion that this is a very dangerous issue for Pope Francis to tackle. One environmentalism and climate change is basic communism in its roots and core. Pope has to know that climate change not only deals with population control but with economic destruction as well if he does not know or understand this then he is quite frankly ignorant more to come on this issue I’m sure of it.

Two great reads to check out, the first from Charisma a response to Ellen DeGeneres on calling out not only the writer of this article but of us all that feel his article was right and just. Larry Tomczak wrote an article last week on how Hollywood has been targeting immorality propaganda for the last few years on our youth.

Second good read is from BarbWire on how the media and our federal leaders keep shoving down our throats how these latest attacks on Paris, Boko Haram are just extreme Islam and this article like me disagrees.

Post of the weeklama

This is of the Dalai Lama using what I think is yesterday’s news to make people think he has this wonderful geniuses of thought. Well Dalai you’re not, lots of us already knew this. We say this all the time “work work and pay your bills then die” this is nothing neither new nor of great intellect.

What gets me with these post of Dalai Lama, Gandhi or Buddha is this is nothing geniuses. God has already spoke and discussed this in this case the Dalai Lama has just restated what King Solomon wrote in Psalms 127 1-2.

What I feel on people that cling on to others like Lama, and Gandhi are just people that are afraid to look for God and his philosophy in the Bible.

They feel less threatened by men that are held in regard by the godless but feel like someone is judging them or they feel like they are becoming that religious nut down the street if they open up a Bible or read a book on Biblical studies much less try a Bible study or church. Very sad yes but I believe this to be true. I also believe this to be true as well, those of you that seek God will not be disappointed and will be fulfilled.

Finally this ducktails from the Paris incident and that is free speech, free speech is a double edge sword if you didn’t know that already. Charlie Hebdo was a pretty vulgar magazine that not only attacked Muslims but Christians alike.

To embrace free speech we also need to embrace ethics and morality to help balance it out. Yes it was wrong for those Islamic terrorist to kill because some magazine blasphemed Mohammad but it was morally wrong for the same magazine to disrespect people that are held in regard or not like they did.

Yes they have a right to do so but was it right to do so. I personally think it is wrong of them to disrespect Nuns, priest and people of prominence in other religions minus atheism. This is why I keep saying morality and ethics are so important in your life; it might even keep you from getting killed some day.

Mr. T

END OF THE WEEK JANUARY 2

END OF THE WEEK THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL

JOHN

January week two and another odd week at that, the elephant in the room is Paris and the attack on freedom of speech and freedom in general. There is more to this and tons of articles out there Brietbart.com captures the headlines and as the days have gone by more opinions come to the forefront.

Most everyone is outraged and for good reason, nowhere in the Christian theology is this condoned. When Jesus confronted blasphemy he never used deadly force, he drove out the blasphemous and set an example of how to respect God.

God does not command this behavior and Jesus never taught it, forgive and turn the other cheek kind of opposite of kill the offender. Another article by the Catholic league gives a response to the attack. Mind you the magazine Charlie Hebdo is an equal opportunity offender of religious blasphemy, they have offended the Catholic Church over and over again some very nasty stuff against nuns and priest.

hate

The Catholic league’s Bill Donohue gives a somewhat odd response and some like myself can take it as though Charlie Hebdo not only should have expected this but kind of deserved this. Donohue goes on to say he has himself protested some of the defaming of the church and God but has never once felt like killing anyone and of course one would expect that answer he should have just kept his mouth shut if you ask me.

On the same note this article from the USA Today’s Anjem Choudary that can read similar to Donahue’s but again Donahue and the Catholic church do not and will never condone violence under any circumstance where as Anjem obviously does.

This was a sad day to say the least and we must now except that in the west we not only can say good things about religion and God we can even say bad things as well but these third world countries like North Korea, middle east and some of Africa you cannot they are still in the 1st century and have no concept of individuality and freedom so seller beware.

I look at Christianity as an individual relationship that requires you to be accountable for the decisions you make. God does not condone nor does Jesus teach violence towards offenders. We do not attack them in masses but instead we pray for them in masses both the offenders and the offensive.

Next up speaker of the house John boring Boehner gets elected speaker once again they just don’t learn folks but my question is will we learn. Although some current GOP conservatives who voted for boring John state it’s what we need to do to get stuff done. Bill Bennet former secretary of education under Reagan said on his radio show a few days ago it does not matter if Boehner or Trey Gowdy is speaker with Obama in the white house its bad news all around and I’m inclined to agree.

I wrote a blog a few months ago stating that 2014 win for the GOP could mean a loss in 2016 if our Congress and Senate do not represent the people like they were voted in for then we are in for more bad days I’m afraid.

Two blogs I post this week one going over true freedom and how in order to have true freedom we will have to embrace our fears; we cannot have the government safety blanket and still have freedom.

Next blog I went over a good article from NPR of all places and broke down how we do not have to follow our wants and desires that lead us to immoral or unethical behavior but God can help us choose a good bath if we let him help us.

Some good reads: From Charisma Magazine Duck Dynasty’s the beardless Robertson Al and his wife get asked how they would respond if their grandchild came out gay.

Also from Charisma a good vid that has atheist wanting an apology for showing the video correlating religion and democracy.

Another article about the Pope embracing climate change, if Francis does embrace climate change it will put Catholics in a bind since he is promoting communism whether he believes it or not it’s nothing short of communism.

Hope everyone around our great nation is staying warm while we here in California enjoy the high life; don’t be jealous we pay big for this kind of weather. Enjoy the next week and stay safe friends.

THE ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY 1

illogical

Monday is the day to kind of look back on the most illogical and absurd articles of last week this way you have something to talk about at work and around the water cooler. Something you and your friends or spouse can chat about so enjoy.

USA Today “My death needs to mean something” publishes this article about Joshua Alcorn who practiced transgender lifestyle and committed suicide with a note blaming his parents. What the mass media is trying to claim is because Joshua’s parents were Christian it drove him to suicide.

Now mind you the Alcorns for good reason have remained silent on this and they should their son died. Why I bring this article up, nowhere it states the Alcorns were Christians or even went to church the allegation was levied by their son Joshua. An obvious confused young man we should not jump to conclusions with neither the son nor the parents but ask we pray for the parents and ask those parents that are in the same situation to get your child help.

They will hate you now for it and society with despise you for it but in the end what matters is getting your children help. If they had a drug or alcohol problem would you sit by say that is the way God made them I think not. After all Joshua wanted his life to matter.

Next the Huffington post “Kaley Cuoco Doesn’t Consider Herself and Feminist” making a big deal out of nothing as they drag up an article from Redbook on Kakey Cuoco star of the big bang theory she is Penny if you don’t watch the show.

Redbook asked Cuoco if she considered herself a feminist and my question is why ask who care? Cuoco said no and actually stated she did not endure discrimination growing up as a woman and loves to cook for her husband oh yeah she got breast implants too better kill her. Cuoco had to apologies via instagram for her remarks and I ask why? She said nothing as highlighted by HuffPo that is outrageous. Sorry progressives if a wife enjoys cooking for her husband and enjoys being a woman.

 “Attracted to men Pastor feels called to called to marriage to a woman” NPR actually does it right and publishes a correct article. This young man has chosen not to follow his carnal wants and thoughts in the name of Jesus. I’m assuming they published this to show the outrage to the progressive, how can this be a man that wants and thinks about being attracted to other men is choosing not to in the name of his God.

This dude even got married to a women and his wife knows he finds men attractive but chooses to be with her because God and the Bible say that is real love and a real marriage. Good read what progressives don’t understand is how this man can do this. It’s kind of like having a craving for booze or cocaine but choosing not to go there knowing it will destroy not only your life but others too.

“California Becomes 10th State to Issue License to undocumented Immigrants” Newsweek covers California as they hand out driver’s license to illegal emigrants. Not the most brilliant thing for California to do but living here in California the government has yet to show me it makes good decisions.

Just more problems for law enforcement to deal with and the concept of rewarding bad behavior in the name of equality and  wanting more money in a state that can’t stop spending money whether it’s legal or illegal.

“North Korea Responds With Fury To the U.S. Sanctions Over Sony Hack” U.S. sanctions North Korea and that’s a big deal, Democratic Underground has the brief and why we care..?

NK continues to deny they hacked Sony and I believe them I think they are telling the truth I do not believe NK has the ability to hack like some people think they do. Why they don’t take credit for this I’m not sure unless China is telling them if the hack does not fit they must refute.

“Evangelical Apocalypse is All Your Fault” The Daily Beast publishes this article and Jay Michealson puts his best foot forward to try and fun the evangelicals for crying it’s the end of the world.

Like Jay I’m not one to rush into it’s the end of the world scenario but I don’t laugh at those who try and put these complexities together. Yes Christians have been saying this for a long time, remember WW1 probably not but that was the most horrific war mankind has endured to date and I bet those people felt the end was near as well.

Making fun of Christians for trying to prepare for the end is just plain mean. One quote goes like this “ If the world is going to end, why are evangelicals so busy trying to save it? Who care is Barack Hussein Obama is president and gays are getting married? Don’t such event prove that evangelicals are right? Well I think you answered your own question Jay.

As far as Christians trying to save a dying world well I think that was the whole reason why Jesus came here and died for our sins and we his disciples are to do the same.

“5 Biggest Threats to Social Security From New Republican Congress” Alternet has an article going over the five biggest threats to social security by the Republican congress.

Biggest threat number one is not a threat and number two states the obvious but its threats 3 through five that have progressives scared to death that our government wants to cut some fat. They view Paul Ryan as the most dangerous man alive a titled very envious of conservatives. But honestly do we really think SS will ever be cut it’s a pipe dream but we can dream cant we.

“The Pope Thinks Climate Change is a Major Threat. So do American Catholics” Mother Jones adds to the shoveling of this gossip that Pope Francis will be embracing climate change soon, someday really soon they are sure of that and you Catholics are for it too.

Now until Pope Francis states climate change is the forefront of his ministry and world leaders must embrace this I’m not going for it just yet and I think we all just need to wait and see.

It’s easy to believe since Francis has already treaded on the secular science issue, homosexuality communism in the way of economic equality but again I think we need to wait and see.

If MJ is correct and Francis does embrace climate change in a progressive way it will mean the Vatican has now embraced communism in the name of God. Mind you yes the liberal media will just fall over themselves loving this but the minute Francis opens his mount about the immorality of abortion or reproductive rights they will be right there to cut his head off.

And that is just my opinion on it all

END OF THE WEEK DECEMBER 2

END OF THE WEEK, THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL

my day

End of the week again halfway through December and almost the end of the year. As I type this we here in Nor Cal and Northern Nevada are supposed to be in the mist of what is dubbed the storm of the century and outside my window it’s just cloudy with maybe a promise of more rain to come. Even more reason why I beg people to not put your trust of weather and climate from man it will always bite you, sometimes hard sometimes just a nip but it will always bite you.

In the news Jonathan Gruber the smartest man in MIT that helped build the ACA (Obama Care) and calling the average American stupid faced some payback justice with a hearing on Capitol Hill. What is even more disturbing is that Gruber is now on record as saying that abortion is a “social good” due to the claim that it reduces the number of “marginal children” what is the definition of marginal children well think, the progressive ideology is saying poor people don’t count and they need abortion to keep more poor children from being introduced into our society that cost us and our government more dollars, kind of sad that one would view a life based on reducing its cost instead of life as a miracle and joyous that should be saved and protect at all cost.

Our smartest woman in California Dianne Feinstein put most everyone and all of our foreign dignitaries and military men and women at risk when she released the senate CIA report a few days ago. The report just stated what we all knew with regards to torture being done to capture war criminals in regards to our September 11th 2001 attack in New York City. 911-conspiracyAmerica did what it needed to do, if anything we should have done more. Bush failed us in the fact he did not allow Americans to invest themselves more into the 911 attacks like America did after the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941. I believe because of this a division was allowed to happen and Americans quickly forgot why we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. Some 13 years later some view this invasion a mistake and I believe if Bush had made this more of a personal attack on each American and his and hers Freedom we would have a different view and maybe had a less decisive government that seems to attack our freedom for power.

This week I published two blogs first one entitled I BLAME YOU MR. FARRAKHAN, MR. SHARPTON AND MR. JACKSON; I blame the deaths of Travon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown on the lack of leadership that Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have brought to the American Black community. Second blog WE WOULD MISS YOU is based off a post that a FB friends posted. Something that is real in the hearts of certain people but is rarely looked at from their point of view and I felt it needed to be said so those who suffer with anxiety, depression, and loneliness would know there are people out there that do care.

Movie to see this Christmas month is a good one called “It happened on 5th Avenue” The Christmas movies should start churning out about now and this is a good one. Very much like “It’s a wonderful life” as a matter of fact Frank Capra was offered the movie and turned it down. It starts off a bit slow but stick with it because the middle half to the end it really gets going and although it’s a bit 1947 corny at times it drives home some real good points about love, greed and the pursue of freedom.5th

Not a bad week this week gave me and I hope you were dealt the same. I’ll be heading into the new week working a bit then off to deliver some gifts to the family and hopefully enjoying the movie Gods and Kings. I know it will be Biblically unsound but with Bale as Moses it should be at least entertaining and that my friend is the lowdown of the week.
