DAILY TWIST 1

Yesterday’s Orlando’s terror attacked as it is being labeled created a world view that might be perplexing if you view things in a leftist way.

We have an attack or should we say a massacre by Islam a much protected religion under liberalism assaulting another well protected and highly prized group of people that practice what Islam considers as a sinful behavior; what are the elite liberals to do.

On one end the Obama administration has overly embraced Islam as peaceful they only site terrorism as its own entity apart of Muslims and core Islam but on the other hand the same administration has flipped over backwards to usher in homosexuality as the norm but they failed to give the memo to Islam do not attack homosexuality.

Do liberals really think a hard core religion like Islam that believes western society is morally reprehensible would embrace homosexuality which has been one of the main causes this administration has invested in.

Liberals have built a cage as you will and put a poisonous spider in the same cage as a group of bees and the spider has just killed 50 of those bees should we expect less.

Two groups who liberals expect everyone to tolerate could not be tolerated the other. Mind you Muslim hate the concept of tolerance to their religion it’s very disrespectful since they view Islam the true religion and Allah the true God and to tolerate send a message that you view them as wrong but you will tolerate the wrongness.

So how are liberals to twist this event well here it is.

ACLU the champion of liberalism has blamed Christians for this very shooting.

The idea of having thoughts and prayers for the victims and the families is Islamophobic and because Christians view homosexuality as sinful behavior that is the cause for the massacre.

Okay let’s put this in a Christian world view perspective. Praying for people and their families that have fallen victims of this tragedy does not disrespect Muslims; attention liberals, if you are not aware Muslim pray as well have you ever heard of a prayer rug?

Christians have not labeled homosexuality as sin God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit all have described the behavior as sinful. Islam does not believe in the triune God that such as Christians do so there is no reason why they would take any influence from a Christian perspective.

Christianity does not condone an anti queer climate that includes murdering people based on the sin they wallow in. Christianity requires repentance of sin it does not attack, kill or injure sinners it would be self defeating since we are in sin.

The sinful nature of liberalism has protected a sin that has killed another sin that is highly prized in their world view and now they must pawn it off on something else that liberals hate, either Christians or guns and preferably both.

Finally super intelligent Seth McFarland has figured out a way to fix this problem and that is ban automatic weapons.

The problem with this brilliant line of thinking is automatic weapons were already banned from this nightclub and look what happened.

I’m sure McFarland would come back and say ban auto guns then mass shootings can’t happen.

Okay let’s not forget it’s just as easy to set off pipe bombs, explosives, poisoning people, mass killings with automobiles by running down people ect. ect. ect.

The Christian world view doesn’t ban tools but demands the heart and mind follow Jesus.

Biblical principles are of peaceful resolutions to adversities, one does not need to rebuke his neighbor for owning a sword when instead he can show the world that a sword can be used for good not evil.

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.”

CONSERVATIVE CONTRAST

24

There is a contrast that separates conservatives and conservative Christians in general and the news of this week shows this contrast well.

Make no mistake conservative and conservative Christians are not at odds with each other, most of the time they are very tightly joined but when theology is involved Christians will start to circle the wagons of their faith more so than the average conservative.

This week in the news shows us this contrast with the Christian faith in The God of the Bible and the defense of Donald Trump. Christians are dealing with so called liberal Christians that assert that the God of Islam is the same God of the Bible while conservatives are dealing with the defense of free speech of Donald Trump from calling Hilary a liar to speeches by Trump causing peaceful Muslims to become radicalized for saying maybe some Mosques need to be shut down.

Both issues are slightly related to each other but still both issues have complete non related outcomes. For the conservative it’s like a fresh drink of water to have a candidate say what everyone is thinking. We know Hilary and the DNC is in a constant lie and most Americans are in fear of Muslims and what kind of violence can ensue.

For the Christian conservative that follows Jesus the idea that Allah and “Elohim or I Am” being the same god is heresy at best it is defiantly is not a heterodox in any stretch of the imagination no matter how much liberal Christians want this to be true. Yes while Christianity, Islam and Judaism fall under the idea of theism Christians are by no means worshiping the same god of Islam.

While conservatives deal with free speech and the undermining of the liberal agenda that marks the main stream media and the DNC the conservative Christians deal with both issues since truly a conservative Christian must make all issues be a part of the Christian view and that includes dealing with candidates that people inside the conservative cause don’t necessarily agree with or even have any reason to side with. The goal would be to work inside the Christian world view in the hopes it works with the moral law of God and the American view of freedom and the constitution that our founding fathers and framers developed for us.

For the most part Christians in general whether they are conservative or liberal battle the political and religious end of their ideology. Liberals will tend to leave the politics in favor of liberal theology while conservative Christians normally will not.

Conservative Christians understand the fabric of politics that is woven into religion. While conservative Christians normally will not allow politics to make or break their theology, politics does impact the society we live in and can effect how that theology is spoken, delivered and received making politics important in not only the Christian world view but the world view in general.

What conservative have to understand, whether they are non believers of God or bordering on atheism, whether they are Jewish or apart of polytheism is that Christianity is the cornerstone of the American foundation of this county. People like Dennis Prager know and understand this and they know and understand how much the belief in God and Christianity in general has shaped this country.

One of the main reason why liberals want to fundamentally change America is because people are not  bowing down to progressiveness that does not believe in secular relativism. Not only is America too white, too capitalist it is also too Christian and that cannot be a part of a liberal America.

Conservatives have known they all are an enemy of the liberal, harsh words enemy but sadly it’s true. Liberals have no need for conservative values, yes some may love God but for the most part they dislike the idea that requires repentance and a declaration to follow Jesus in the same breath. Liberal Christians want that red letter love and nothing to do with obedience to God because that takes away the idea of free will and autonomy.  Liberal Christians that believe in repentance, following Jesus and being obedient to God always throw in the love first for everyone that questions disobedience and demands repentance not fully understanding that with love comes obedience but before all that we need to truly repent.

While conservatives in general do not need to completely know and understand the theology of Christianity  or each individuals philosophy they do need to know and understand how Christianity and the belief in the God of the Bible have shaped this country. Knowing how gives understanding how conservatism works in a joint effort of multi beliefs.

Christian conservatives have to balance these multi beliefs and they have to learn it is not a deal breaker to work with beliefs that are not Christian beliefs but still function with in Gods moral law. Not everyone will follow the conservative Christian idea that is for sure but we can still live and work in the same world, we can still share in ideas that will grow this country for the better.

Taking the conservative ideas that are not Christian in general and transforming and changing these multi views into a Christian view might still could be done. We  just have to view core beliefs as important to all conservatives hard to do sometimes but important for stability. Building on a good conservative idea that is not Christian can be done and for the believer may even be an idea that can be transformed into the Christians world view.

As we go into an election year understand it will be a fight but I believe it is key for conservatives to stay strong, stay logical and stay united. Liberalism and moderates riding the fence lack logic and unity something the conservative idea should do its best to capitalize on. The goal is simple, bring back America before we loose it.

THE CROSS AND THE WEAPON

19

Another mass shooting and another plea by liberal Christians to increase gun control, or just ban them all together. Would Jesus be pro second amendment, would Jesus speak out against those who own guns or weapons in today’s world well to be frank its irrelevant.

We can speculate and speculate, we can take scripture in and out of context to try and make our case but to me it’s irrelevant. Jesus came to bring us the free gift of salvation. He didn’t get too political or religious something people can’t seem to not do because we are not God.

Jesus never really spoke of ownership of weapons, whether or not it is good or bad but he did speak several times on defending ourselves and the Bible in whole speaks about defense as well

Luke 22:35-36, Exodus 22:2-3, Luke 22:38, Psalm 18:34, Psalm 144:1 and 2 Samuel 22:35

Now while the Bible and Jesus do offer a defense of one’s self it is very clear that God tells us never take revenge. There is a complete difference in being prepared for self defense, pre meditated murder and revenge something my liberal Christians fail to see. One can also read Matthew 18:6 where Jesus is quite clear about when people injure children. I have a hard time believing God would not want us to defend a Childs life at all cost.  Matthew 18:6 begs for today’s liberal Christian to ask why God would want somebody to take their own life.

My liberal Christians fail to see it is not the weapon that makes one kill or promote killing it is the depraved heart that turns a person’s mind against Gods nature. It’s the person that kills not the weapon and we are not talking about people accidently kill themselves by discharging a weapon, people die all the time doing stupid and adventurous stuff don’t blame the gun on a ignorant mind.

It’s easy to blame people with guns for killing but don’t you dare blame the person and their depraved heart and mind for killing. When we preach that there is nothing greater than “Jesus is love” but conveniently forget repentance and forgiveness then you are giving out what Dietrich Bonheoffer would say “Cheap Grace”.

22

Our liberal Christians don’t like to mention nor even think humans can sink so low as to be callus and depraved in everything they do. We have to accept everything people do and when you counter that acceptance then you are the problem. It’s the Christians that speak out against LGBTP, pornography or refuse to believe in climate change, they are the ones to blame.  Two Islamist go on rampage and it’s not them it’s my fellow Christians that love guns fault. One has to wonder of the 14 people killed by our two Muslim killers if just two of the 14 would had been carrying guns would all 14 people be dead now.

These are issues that everyone is struggling with right now, the liberal Christian can’t get past that Christians that believe in self defense are not making the 2nd amendment their idol.  Liberals can’t get past that humans are depraved by nature and when they choose wrong over right they sometimes not only kill the body but the  mind and soul as well.

Controlling or banning weapons won’t solve the evil that rest in the heart and mind of humans. Nobody ever shoots a gun again problem solved but death never stops. We need to ban gun, bats, knifes, how about pornography what about drugs, child abuse. Liberal Christian, have you ever thought about why people do evil?

I ask liberal Christians to stop blaming and start praying. Stop worrying about what others deem opposite of your agenda and start praying that what you hold to be true also  be true with the mind of God. Stop tolerating evil and start asking for forgiveness, stop worrying about your conservative’s bother plank that is in their eyes and worry about the tree that is in your eyes.

COEXIST CAN ONLY CONTRADICT

15

You run across one of these stickers probably once a week on somebody’s Prius, most likely it’s a hippie or a sharp leftist but do you wonder is it possible to truly coexist with everyone and do these people really know what they are demanding.

Next to every “coexist” sticker should be a sticker that says “contradict”. Each belief contradicts the others belief making coexistence impossible.

Each belief demands exclusivity to that belief and that belief alone. Islam demands Allah is the only God, Jews their God is the only God, Hindi has many Gods but their belief of reincarnation is a must. Atheist demand naturalism and science is the only truth.

There is contradiction with all these beliefs so who do you follow, who will you give your life to?

Atheists believe there has to be proof to be something, seeing is believing. Yet no one has seen large scale evolution, no one has seen a big bang creating life out of nothing. Gravity just exists, no why or how it just exists. DNA is magic per Richard Dawkins but wait is not magic something that cannot be seen or understood?

Buddha was a Hindu that believed there was more; he abandoned the core beliefs of Hinduism and ended up mixing atheism with reincarnation. One has to die and die again to obtain nirvana a complete blowout of the mind where one ceases to exist there is no God.

Christians and Jews believe in a one true God but unlike Jews Christians believe the one true God sent his son Jesus to die for us so that we would be worthy. That through his death God now gives us salvation by his grace alone. John 14:6  and Acts 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved”.

COEXIST is either a complete insult or complete ignorance by one that is reaching for an end to free thought. COEXIST is not new it is the same exclusivity in the idea that no one is correct that there is no truth.

Without truth your ideas are invalid to my ideas, making the ability to truly coexist is impossible.

CHRISTIANITY AND AMERICA

12

If we accept the notion that America should not be or is not a Christian national we fail to see the consequences that could have been and will be.
The founding framers attempted to design the constitution with the adaptation of natural law. They were of course a few ticks off but still maintained the importance of the need of The God of the Bible essence to be an integral part of the framework.

A strong percentage of our framers belonged to one church denomination or another, whether they were truly saved is not ours to judge but we have to know this affiliation to a Judeo-Christian church had to influence their judgment when creating a country such as America.
If we take Christianity away then we need only to take away some of our founding fathers like George Washington wondering would we have won the revolution without him and his Christian influence. Would a country full of atheist, Islamism, Buddhist and Hindus could have challenged the crown.

Would we still have a two party political system with the democrats and the Wigs parties? One could argue there would be no need for a man like Abraham Lincoln and how long would America continue slavery without the objection of the Christians.

In 1821 Benjamin Lunday, a Quaker from Ohio, started an anti-slavery newspaper “The Genius of Universal Emancipation.” 1830: The Plantation Mission Movement began. Methodist chapels were constructed on many plantations. 1959 John Brown raid on Haper’s ferry are just a few of the many Christian movements that combated slavery in America.

Christian missionaries moved in to helping the Native Americans, Christianizing many tribes over the years one notable being the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.

As America became more prosperous missionary work flourished, one can easily criticize America’s greed but one cannot take away from prosperous people that gave and continue to give for and to missionaries to help the poor and disadvantaged in this country and abroad with privet contributions.

Much of our colleges we have today started out as Christian based education, Harvard, Yale, Princeton to name a few.

Civil rights movement of the 1960’s was heavily Christian with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and seminary students like John Lewis

We can argue and debate on this issue but it’s fairly easy to see the Christian influences in this country are huge. Can we say we are not a Christian nation well I guess one can make the case but we have to say we are a nation of Christian’s and a nation that has been impacted by Christianity. Can you make a case that our government should be secular, yes you can but we must then demand or statesmen and women to be Godly?

Our government functionality should be unbiased to everyone but the people that fill those positions in government should be Godly good statesmen.

If we have bad statesmen then we have bad government, ungodly statesmen ungodly government. In past it was important that anyone serving the public have some ties to a Judeo-Christian believing church of some kind. You can argue this is not fair for a county that embraces all religions all faiths but I’m not sure your argument would be valid.

Go back to the founding framers and their original intentions of natural law, this requires a statesman to know and understand moral law to govern. Can men and women of other faith know and understand good and bad and how morality plays out in a society; to an extent they can but they will fail to grasp why and who set these laws in motion thus the slow migration from a good and moral set of rules to a mixture of moral relativism.

I suspect the last few sentences will enrage some people, we can say America was not intended to be a Christian only nation but we have to admit it is a nation of Christians that have impacted society and helped design country based on a rule and law held on a notion of a creator and one God. A country based on a God with a moral law to protect and govern all that live in this great nation.

 

 

 

TUESDAY MEMES 1

alta net

I saw this gem on a friend’s FB page some time ago and what intrigued me was it’s from AlterNet. If you do not know who AlterNet is you can check them out but I can give you the short version here. They are a liberal e-mag rag that does nothing to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ that I’m sure of.

On first glance you can see this is AlterNet pointing their finger at both the Christian and the atheist, “shame on you two for arguing so much on a petty subject while people or being slandered.

One only has to think its ISIS that is destroying the world and who are they destroying? I think they are called Christians and Jews or anyone that disagrees with ISIS. Yes ISIS has been destroying priceless artifacts and monuments but hey people are getting their heads chopped off for just believing differently of Islam.

First who is fighting over whom, both Christians and Jews both believe the one true God of the Bible who created the world. Even Islam believes one God created the world but I don’t see Christian Jews and atheist killing each other over it.

Atheists believe in a bang although science is finding more and more that such a bang can’t be. Islam ideology fits more in line with evolution; it believes in one God but allows evolution to work its magic as Richard Dawkins would call it as evolution does its creation of everything internal. Still I have yet to see atheist and Christians kill each other because one believes in magic and the other believes in  intelligent design.

So where is the fight, Christianity does not fight but holds to a belief in the God of the Bible creating the world. They hold that it should be taught in school whether it is science or philosophy they believe it holds a place in education.

It’s mainly the atheist, the secularist and the humanist that argue the creation of the universe. It’s those groups that fight both in and out of the classroom to ban the thought of Christianity from the conversation. Childlike men such as Lawrence Krauss who say parents that teach their children creation is a form of child abuse; anything goes unless it’s about God right Lawrence.

I have said as have others that Islam (ISIS) is more of a threat to the world than the small percentage of atheism and I still stand by that. I would love to see the atheist give up or at least be willing to have a coexisting conversation on how the world began but they will not in a public forum like education. Unlike the Christian it is not in the atheist/secularist  best interest and belief  to embrace a world not created by God.

Mind you Christians argue amongst themselves over how God created the universe and the world we live in but one thing they do agree on is God and God alone was the creator.

Yes there is debate amongst atheist on the big bang and evolution but the one thing that unites them is their belief that there is no God.

Can Christians and atheist stop fighting like AlterNet wants them to, considering whom AlterNet is I think they should take a page from the quote they stand on. The answer is no, because that is the world we live it.

Atheists fight for our hearts and minds, it asks us to believe their theories and study those theories founded mainly in conjecture.

Christianity fights for our hearts and minds, it ask us to believe in a God, in a way of life and to study that belief in a book known as the Bible. Transcripts that have been historically accurate (Bible). Christianity asks we give our lives to a God and believe in a man called Jesus that many eye witnessed and wrote about.

ISIS fights for our hearts, minds and body, it hates anyone that disagrees and will kill anyone that disagrees. I agree with Alan Shlemon from Stand to Reason with his most accurate statement on Islam. To paraphrase; Islam is hate and war hijacked by a minority of peaceful Muslims. ISIS will fight until something new and more powerful arrives. Islam will not stop because it has too much invested in its lie

No AlterNet, there will not be any compromise and not because Christians and Jews want war but because truth about God and Jesus are too important to put on a shelf for someone to knock it off and break it into a thousand pieces unrecognizable faith.

THE THREAT

islam-atheism-300x103

After reading a small article from Applied Apologetics entitled “Irrationality and Mocking are the Tools of Atheism Since It Lacks Proof and is Impossible” where they gloss over a major point between the threat or depending on who you are the difference between Islam and Atheism and it struck me as I too feel the real threat is not the ridiculing and name calling from atheist but the threat of Islam.

In fact with Islam major amounts of disinformation, lies and terroristic brainwashing is continually going on to the point we have a global threat a major cancer in the mist of mankind.

Islam boast more than a billion believers atheist not so much. Atheist rarely threaten with Bodily harm with Islam very much so.

Islam is no religion of peace no matter how much they box it up and package it. Jesus never killed anyone but came to save everyone by sacrificing himself for everyone while Mohammad killed people and Allah did less than Jesus ever did for mankind.

When people leave ISIS, ISIS curses them and sets out to kill them. When a person leaves the church, more times than not they pray for that person.

I’m not saying atheism is a lost cause by no means no way. But realistically at times it’s childish to debate with atheist,humanist, secularists and any other ism that’s out there, that just need to stop listen and start discerning their own beliefs.

Hurling insults and trolling blogs and forums make for an entertaining day for both sides but the reality is Islam is more dangerous. Not only does Islam steal the soul but they kill the body as well.

We still cannot allow scientism or darwinism to control our society it too will result in loss of freedom of the intellectual mind and soul but even with that it may not have any bearing in a society that trades it freedom for a religion of spiritual and physical death.

CORRUPTION BRINGS OUT THE FOOLS

no god

Can life begin out of nonexistence?

This is a question that has been in play for who knows how long, a debate that will rage on until Jesus returns if you are a Christian or to the end of your age if you believe in atheism,secularism or you’ll never really grasp life and you are into human spiritualism that allows you to just keep recycling yourself from one animal to another.

Some may consider this a deep question and maybe that’s why only two people on my Facebook responded. One friend felt it was way too deep before her coffee and my other FB friend posted “Depends on who you ask” and that is as true as it gets.

Can this question be answered to the content of everyone, most likely not? There are too many beliefs even if you segregated all them to three categories of faith you still would get three to five opinions maybe more.

Professor Alister McGrath Irish Apologist and Professor of science and religion at Oxford University comes to the conclusion that we cannot prove our beliefs, Christians, atheist, Islamist or Hindi cannot prove the existence of their beliefs so which one is more desirable to believe, which one is worth staking your life on?

Can nonexistence produce life, and if so why don’t we see it. We are told has happened and these people are all about seeing is believing but we have never seen it that I’m aware but we are told it happened once.

As a Christian view of “can nonexistence create life” and yes it can and did I just shake my head in disbelief that such a belief of “it did not” would be desirable to have faith in let alone stake my life on.

Unlike atheism true Christianity is not just a theory it is a way of life and practiced in everyday living.

The churches that feed the homeless with daily soup kitchens, organizations like Samaritans purse that send men and women all around the world to feed the hungry and attend the sick.

This is real practice of a real belief of a faith that I trust and many more stake their lives as they witness to Muslims and others in communist countries around the world. Naturalism/ atheism on a daily basis does none of this; it has nothing only theory that teaches we are just chemicals and cells that only feel with senses no moral and ethical conscious.

Of the three faiths that believe life does exist because of design, only two Judaism and Christianity believe in the same idea and designer; both share the same belief of what that designs purpose was for.

If we look at what King David wrote in Psalm 53:1 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,” They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; There is no one who does good.

Now this is a widely used Psalm used by people when talking smack on those who do not believe in God and you wonder why people get defensive towards others that use this quote alone.

What really needs to be added to this Psalm is more of this Psalm. 53:2-3 God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there is anyone who [c]understands, Who seeks after God. Every one of them has turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.

What King David is saying is those who say there is no God, denying that life was not designed by life are corrupt in the mind and soul.

They roll in the filth of this world and wonder why they and their world looks so dirty.

They do not repent from their misdeeds and because of this their hearts harden even more towards the idea that life cannot start without design so life must have begun out of nonexistence because they cannot comprehend any other way simply said by King David they are fools.

It’s quite interesting that the day I decided to blog on my “Facebook question of the day” I started the day out reading my daily Bible devotion and then I went on to read anothr daily devotional from the BGEA (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association) and the topic was “The Fool says in his heart there is no God” it went on to describe exactly what I just shared here. Call it chance like a secularist would or call it divine education I know what I call it but you are welcome to choose your own idea.

The question can never really be answered so everyone is satisfied because of the corrupt nature of the world we live in.

So maybe now we need to add a second question after the first question has been debated  as “what belief is most favorable to you; what belief are you going to live for, something or nothing and what belief would you stake your life on?”.

THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: 3

IS TOLERANCE DISRESPECTFUL

got tolerance 2

Last week I asked the question “Is tolerance disrespectful” and I got a few answers that are not fully direct like I thought they would be. My friend Bryan from So Cal said “tolerance was disrespectful only for yourself” and there is a lot of truth to that. Another FB friend Brenda said “If you do it on a daily basis for the same thing then yes you are being disrespectful“.

Now mind you the general idea of tolerance in the minds of Hollywood and the Left, tolerance is good and it’s what will save humanity from itself. Tolerance lets us get a long in spite of our differences.

I have to be honest I really never gave it a thought to what tolerance stood for, I probably felt you were being kind or compromising by tolerating a person, act or a situation. It was not until I was listening to Michael Ramsden an apologetics and evangelist that cleared it up for me.

Tolerance is disrespectful, Ramsden uses the west and it’s tolerance to Islam as an example. Islam sees the west as just tolerating its way of life, its religion and that does not sit well with Isamist.

Islam demands respect and when you tolerate them you are saying I don’t like you but you can still practice your religion and way of life but in reality I don’t care or respect you please don’t bother me.

Islam views this with great disrespect and it’s no wonder the west and Islam are at odds.

It’s a double edge sword no matter what decision the west makes they cannot win unless the west either quits extending its arms out to Islam or completely surrenders to Islam.

If they quit extending their arms out then they are at odds and war, if they surrender then the west is no longer the west and everything from technology to our religion changes.

Now it’s a tat bit different on a personal level, the loss of respect comes to you the tolerator over the tolerated.

We really don’t care for the person, situation, or whatever act is being done but we allow it or just don’t say anything because we are tolerating to keep the peace. I’m not disrespecting you to your face but you are to my face but I’ll deal with it to keep the peace.

If we are tolerating the person, situation or act that we feel is not satisfactory with what we believe in, in a way by not telling the truth we are disrespecting ourselves and our way of life. Do we do this as a one time thing out of respect or do it until it becomes a compromise?

Do we do tolerate to keep the peace or just be friendly, some would say never stop but do we keep tolerating even when the offensive destroys a way of morality and since the worlds definition of morality is so relative I will define morality as Biblical morality.

Should we be full on truthful and tell that someone or the situation we just don’t like it, them or what they do. Like my friend Brenda that said if you do it all the time you are being disrespectful and I agree but are you being more disrespectful to yourself than the person or thing you are tolerating?

Now I’m not saying we should be rude to everyone that we don’t agree with let me be clear, that is being disrespectful. With that said there are things that will affect us, or families and our way of life that cannot be compromised and if we keep on tolerating or compromising on these things and issues then you can expect to lose them in the name of tolerance.

 When should truth take the stand, do we tolerate a crying baby in a movie theater and just wait the crying out to spare feelings?

Do we tolerate hate speech in the name of free speech, do we tolerate decisions made based on lifestyle in the name of personal freedom or do we tolerate and disrespect ourselves in the name of getting along. And if we do tolerate in the name of getting along do we have a limit on how much we tolerate or is it a given we tolerate everything no matter what we compromise.

When should truth take the stand, when your sense of morality is being broken in the name of freedom to do as I please?

Do we speak up when our rights are being questioned or taken away on the basis of fairness?

Do we speak up and tell the truth when we see our families forced to relearn or be a part of something that is morally objectionable to our way of life our moral upbringing or do we stay silent and disrespect ourselves so as our names and lives are not drag down in the mud of disrespectfulness to the offender.

If we are to believe tolerance is actually a good thing then we have to expect both sides to practice this good thing fairly.

If tolerance is a part of fairness and getting along then people that expect their way of life to be respected also need to respect the rest of society’s way of life and that includes the right to be for or against that way of life.

If we toss away morality, we toss away the Bible, God, and mans sinful nature for tolerance then we either practice fairness across the board or we prepare for all out war.

Either way if you stand for Biblical morality the Decalogue and not stand for tolerance and moral compromise then you can still expect all out war.

At the top I gave the liberal definition to tolerance and the way I see it that is not tolerance, what they define as tolerance is what I would call truth and respect of a difference of opinion or way of life.

The reason why they define it as tolerance,  Leftist do not believe in truth they find that disrespectful.
