RED LETTER HYPOCRISY

30

Reading a post from the Red Letter Christians today and you would assume the name Red Letter would mean Jesus’ words alone, but you would be quite wrong if you did.

The article was on a protester that protested the Trump Chicago rally because in their mind Trump is a racist. Why, because Trump in the past has called people names and wants to build a boarder.

Now mind you I’m not a Trump supporter, I have a different candidate that I am supporting but this is not the point.

Tony Campolo and his Red Letters don’t see the hypocrisy in all this as a matter of fact they publish the hypocrisy.

What is the hypocrisy, it is that one can protest a candidate because they don’t like them. Let’s call him a racist because he shoots his mouth off now and again but nothing about why Biblically one needs to disrupt presidential rally.

Never mind the candidate supports abortion, has no clue of what it means to be a true Christian, has no intentions and will not repent of any violations of God moral code even though he believes to be a Christian and this from a group that insist they follow the words of Jesus.

The second hypocrisy is the protester makes it plain that Trump is the target based on he called people names making him a racist. Let’s forget that two candidates Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton have promised abortion on demand be the main stay law of the land if elected. There will be no protection for the unborn with a democratic candidate with both candidates in clear violation of the 6th and 8th commandments but I guess red letters don’t agree those are worth protesting.

Amazing how progressive Christians won’t see truth because it clouds their agenda. True sin in the mind of a liberal Christian is negative emotions; it is symbolism over substance something well defined in the Red Letter Christian.

HOLLYWOOD’S PARADE OF NOTHING

17

Yes more Hollywood brilliance, of course I’m not saying Penn is a bad guy matter of knowledge he is slightly conservative in an anarchist kind of way (yes Jillette is an anarchist) Breitbart story

Why is this a big deal well, the idea of an atheist involved in a Christmas parade and mind you Christmas is short for Christ Mas just does not jive with me and anyone with a lick of sense of what both Christmas and atheism means shouldn’t either.

Has Hollywood finally reached the point it just doesn’t care about anything or anyone’s idea of sacred and meaningful much less insulting our intellect.

I guess looking at both Hollywood and Jillette, one would think someone with some sense and intelligence would question this decision.

Gillette feels it’s just a holiday but I guess he fails to see holiday is just the modernized word for the Holy Day.

I’m pretty sure few people will actually watch the Hollywood Christmas parade since its normally on some oddball TV network filling in times slot that nobody watches, but I have asked, should we just change the name to say the “December parade” so that way everyone knows the parade stands and means nothing just like Hollywood’s and  Jillettes beliefs?

Who loses here? Well, I see it as mainstream America loses because media feels there is no meaning in Christmas, much less the holiness of Christmas.

It is a big deal that a belief in no God grand marshals a parade that is in honor of.

It says a lot when a corner of the country that had little regard to the essence of what a country regards as good and right, and it says a lot about a society that won’t even know what is happening or even cares it has happened.

THE DEBATE

Tonight another GOP debate, I do have a dog in this fight because frankly the DNC is full of has-been old white guys or socialist on the verge of being a communists so I’m not thrilled with ever voting demo-liberal I’d rather vote for a paper towel over Bernie Sanders or Clinton.
What I read on the Emags and Twitter is tonight’s debate is over substance this will separate the adults from the children. (Can’t say men from boys since Carly is running).


What does substance mean, and what does it mean from a liberal network like CNBC. No more questions like “would you really let a woman die and not let her have an abortion” Megan Kelly should have been fired for that moronic question to Scott Walker.
I don’t have faith in CNBC, they do good when they show formula 1 Grand Prix’s for NBC Sports occasionally but besides that who watches CNBC well I guess you will be if you watch the debate.

Will Trump bounce back will Carson surge forward will Rubio scream I don’t know.
One thing I guess is this debate might thin the herd a bit, maybe Bush stumbles maybe Christie has mob ties.

One thing I do hope is that they the candidates put their energy in defeating the socialist democrats yes the democrat socialist that is what Sanders identifies himself and what he and his party wants for this country.

Forget the back stabbing guys and gal let’s focus on winning the prize regardless if you are nominated or not.

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. 

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 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.

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.

THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: 1

MY THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: APRIL 23

gun-control-logic

This is the first of what I hope to be many thoughts based on my Question of the day. Facebook is a fun place to play, some get serious as all and some keep it light. I personally play the middle I guess, I love to have fun and share things but I also have convictions that I believe in and I’m not shy to express those convictions or opinions.

This is what I call Thoughts of the day answering my Question of the day, mind you it’s a few days off so as to give everyone a chance to view and express their opinion of the question of the day.

If you have missed any of my questions of the day feel free to go to my FB page and scroll down and give your opinion, I don’t add my opinion, I’m not there to argue my opinion at that point it’s your chance to express your opinion and thoughts, go ahead and argue away the goal for me is just to collect data from everyone to see what people think out there in reality land.

My first question I posted had no replies and that might have been based on the day and the subject of the question. Some of my news or lot of my news comes from conservative outlets like Breitbart Charisma, BarbWire and the Washington Times much of that news is never covered by the main stream media like NBC, CBS and Fox so I suspect this is why no one bothered to answer the question and it was rather written in way so as to have a twist agenda.

My question was  “Is the fact Tim McGraw playing at a gun control concert similar to having him say I’m not for socialized economic equality but I think minimum wage should be $20.00?”

For those of you not understanding what has been going on is McGraw has been called out for his decision for playing at the Sandy Hook Promise gun control fundraiser. McGraw says he’s not for gun control but is singing to raise money for the families of Sandy Hook but he’s raising money for the group Sandy Hook Promise which is a gun control group.

McGraw wants it both ways, he wants to help by jumping in with a gun control group but does not want to be labeled as associated with gun control.

A twitter post that I viewed brought up a good point, most conservatives own guns or are for non gun control and most conservatives enjoy and buy country music so you can see McGraw would want to make a distinction of what his intentions are. I feel McGraw has been Holywoodized and falls for leftist causes.

So my other question added to the first was is this not the same as if McGraw was saying he is not for socialized economic equality but thinks minimum wage should be $20.00. On one end you say no I’m not for socialism but I think we need to make everyone’s pay more equal.

Both questions are hot beds right now, gun control is always a hot topic with leftist and conservatives and my opinion is it’s based on freedom. The second amendment says we have a right to carry, no control we have a right to bear arms. Leftist say they want choice but won’t give us real choice unless it fits their needs.

Minimum wage is for entry level jobs, the idea of setting a minimum for wage is not freedom its regulation and bondage. Should not I determine what my value is and if I hire somebody should not that somebody have their right to determine their value as well?

minimum-wage

The idea of increasing minimum wage based on the fact that one cannot make a living on it is not a smart idea at all. Most entry level jobs pay less and are mainly consumed by high school and some collage they were never meant for a person to make a living on that job but just to makes small ends meet or as they say pocket change or spending money.

We see more and more retirees working in fast food and retail stores but that is mainly to supplement their retirement since commodities that need to be purchased to live from day to day are becoming over priced based on what. Based on high pay for low skilled work, it’s hypocritical for the folks that want to raise minimum wage based on “you can’t live on it” and then expect to increased taxes on people that they feel make too much money.

We are not equal people we are valued differently some are better than others otherwise we all would be wearing Super Bowl rings like Joe Montana.

If the current minimum wage is not enough then what is the magic number? Why not raise it to $50.00 an hour or maybe $60K a year, is that enough or do we need more. Why not 100K a year for everyone, no more no less; now what kind of country do think we would be living in then?

A CHRISTIAN CIVIL WAR?

A CHRISTIAN CIVIL WAR

 rewrittenimage-300x171

Few days ago I read a blog about how James Dobson of focus on the family warned of a civil war that could happen if the Church and Christians kept compromising on Biblical morality and worldly relativism he was a bit more precise in words but this is the gist of it.

The writer of the blog cited this from a leftist emag rightwingwatch.org and generally believed Dobson really meant a war with guns and bombs maybe like the war Ireland had.

After reading both articles I felt that Dobson may have been talking about a real civil war but I think Dobson was talking about a civil war within the church that if happens could it destroy the church as we know it. He may have meant both, if our leaders will not stand up for the rights of the church and Christians we could see dark days ahead.

My reply to the blogger was this “I’m not sure Mr. Dobson’s civil war means actual killing of people but the killing and injuring of souls. I believe what he maybe referring to is a war that will break the church, pitting two sides against each other.

The Conservative Christian who feels Christians need to follow Gods Natural and Moral law, their intent is not to judge people into submission but to point out what happens to a society that refuses to follow these laws most of what can be found Biblically.

The Liberal Christian that accepts the person for who they are regardless of the sin. They never try to judge behavior that is based in sin feeling that loving the person and showing the example of love will be enough and let God be the Judge of that heart.

The problem arises when Christians and churches attached themselves to sinful behavior that God has condemned and or asks us not to condone or be a part of. No one is saying don’t let the sinner in the sinner is already in but the sinner must repent and do the best to sin no more.

This is where the civil war can begin and it will be started by outside forces mainly political and media driven forces that want to see the church die and Christians be thrown in utter chaos”. The blogger didn’t even acknowledge anything I said but stated Dobson’s remarks sounded like a war to her.

At this time I see Christians already engaging in a civil war, churches are still on the sidelines but soon I suspect this will change with court rulings and new laws past. Again if our political and judicial leaders do not protect the Church and Christian rights dark days are ahead.

There already is a division between active Christians that feel Gods natural and moral law is being challenged and Christians that feel those types of Christians are too judgmental and need to allow God to be the judge and Christians need to love. The problem with the latter Christian is they give no boundaries to how far Biblical immorality can be taken before one takes a stand and many excuses will you give to laws that condone Biblical immorality.

There are three types of Christians to this civil war that I believe is in its infancy. 1st type are Christians that defend Gods natural and moral law, his commandments and they refuse to compromise on these issues.

They take these very seriously and feel without these laws and commandments Christianity will get watered down and loose its flavor or light for we are the salt and light of this world.

2nd type are Christians of the liberal nature that feel love is first and foremost and we should not judge if we are to lead people to Christ.

These Christians are willing to bend the rules or reinterpret them to make everyone feel comfortable.

Like the conservative Christian they condemn the other for the way they go about their business. They do not take Gods natural law and moral as serious because those can be always changing much like relativism there is not always a right and wrong way, some even believe all gods lead to heaven.

Mind you not all believe this some just see others as judgmental and thus take the opposite side.

3rd type are Christians are the ones sitting on the sidelines not wanting to be labeled either. They go to church or not, donate to charities or a church but do not get evolved with politics or social issues they have a family to raise mind you they don’t have time for this.

In some ways they are correct, they don’t have time due to everyday issues, issues due to some part politics and some parts social that can be very powerful and labeling

Money, time and family weigh down on them and those come first, they will sometimes support issues with money but will don’t take a stand the question is are you this Christian because this is the biggest type of Christian.

There might be a time when everyone will have to take that stand, I believe the civil war has begun and Christians are starting to take sides. Its sad this has to happen but I believe God demands us to follow him and to obey his commandments and uphold his moral law while others feel this is too strong and it needs to be crushed.

This division might destroy the church I believe or it will certainly divide the church and it is already starting to happen.

We know of several church denominations that have compromised on Biblical moral issues while others have stayed true to traditional Biblical moral issues. I suspect this civil war will slowly get bigger and eventually it will demand all church denominations to take a stand and when that happens division will start and in some cases it already has.

What are the stands that will fuel this civil war? 1: Compromising on atheism and natural science the intermingling of the two to make everyone happy or at least some happy.

2: Compromising on sex and how the church views moral and immoral activity (this is one issue that will bring the church into a civil war it spits churches all the time).

3: Allow relativism to be apart church doctrine, no right and wrong just whatever fits your way of life.

4: Allowing or changing the act of homosexuality to be a non sin issue, this I believe will be the catalyst of allowing all sexual behaviors a right to exist in our society you may laugh but it all starts somewhere.

5: Condoning abortion to the point we no longer speak out against this atrocity.

6: Reinterpret the scriptures of the Bible or saying the writers of the New Testament are no longer relevant in today’s world thus saying the Holy Spirit is irrelevant.

So what will you do, what side will you take or have you taken. Typing this up its obvious I lean a certain way and I believe this way to be true.

I believe God spoke and continues to speak and to not listen and try and reinterpret what God has said in order to water down our faith is dangerous for us and  our society.

All six fuels I listed are dividing Christians now except for the ones sitting on the fence who have no time to know what is going on.

Prayer is good it is always good but I believe we will need to take this further and prayer with action will be needed.

Understand what God says (read your Bible and ask questions), know him and pray to him (church and Bible studies). Repent from our sins and ask for forgiveness and do our best not to sin again. Uphold Gods natural and moral law but also forgive and love your neighbor.

 

Illogical and absurd Monday 1-26

Daniellion

Welcome to Monday and more illogical and absurd articles and blogs from the left media to discuss around the water cooler.

Believe it or not it was a slow illogical and absurd week in the progressive agenda due to the state of the union address and deflated footballs I suspect but still there were a few to not ignore.

First up the progressives are panicking over the 2014 election, scared to death ironically that they may no longer be able to kill unborn children. CNN publishes “How states are playing politics with women’s bodies”

Progressives love to frame abortion like this, “it’s our bodies your taking away a woman’s right to end her unborns life”. The article is scary to think our society is demanding this but reality is It’s not, abortion is becoming an extreme idea.

Part of the article reads as this “After she was unable to get the care she needed at the clinic closest to her, she left her small town in the Texas panhandle and went to Oklahoma, where she was told that her pregnancy was too far along to receive an abortion there. So she came to us.”

The writer of the article tries to call an abortion medical care, whatever happened to do no harm I guess they forgot that one. Those of us who oppose abortion are called anti-choice yet does not the choice start before the baby is made.

You choose to have sex and bam a child is made, yes we know pro abortion advocates will want to use rape and incest to condone abortion but be honest this is a tiny percent and believe it or not there are churches and groups out there that will take on the responsibility for these babies that are born.

If a culture wants to hang on to a small percentage and condone killing knowing unborn children are living and feeling inside the mother  then we now have a corrupt and bankrupt society.

Next Slate publishes a blog from Alternet so this is kind of a two for one for these two progressive rags. “The 12 worst ideas religion has unleashed on the world”

The shocking thing is they actually pick on more than one religion. Normally leftist progressives will focus on Christians or Christianity but I have to say they seemed to try and spread the love hate here. I’m going to just lay out the Christian points since I’m not Muslim or Hindu, I’ll stay out of their domain.

First of the 12 ideas they go after is the concept of Chosen people: This is where lack of reading and understanding your Biblical text bites you and shoots out a red flag in this article, for sure an atheist wrote this (Valerie Tarico).

Chosen people is not an idea it was a name given by God in the Old Testament to Abrahams lineage aka children of Abraham then later defined as the Jews or Hebrews. In the New Testament after dying for our sins by Jesus then his resurrection the chosen people now extend to everyone that excepted Jesus as their  personal savior in their hearts and minds aka salvation.

Only God knows who will except his gift of salvation so only God has chosen these people something atheist and people not willing to give themselves to God can understand.

Heretics: people don’t like the word because it calls them out on their corrupting of God’s word. Heretics tend to water down Gods word or misinterpret Biblical text to fit their immorality.

Atheists look at it as religious people not being tolerant of others belief but as Christians we have to follow the basis of God’s word.

We are not to add to or take away to fit our needs. God fits our needs and we have to add to or take away from our lives to receive what God can give us.

Holy War: Something we see in Islam constantly and it’s apart of their culture. Early Catholic leadership used this to try and free Israel and fight back Islam but in all reality Christians do not fight in Holy wars not for the last few hounded centuries.

What one century mistake made has always followed the Catholic Church and Christianity but let’s be real guys Christians don’t do holy wars.

Blasphemy: Again the writer not understanding Biblical text somewhat gets this wrong in the Christian definition; they have it right in the Islamic definition.

God gives us free will so the ability to disbelieve in God is tolerated but does not go unpunished but man will not dole out that punishment that will be left up to God.

Making fun of Christians and God is something Christians do not like or encourage but living in a free society we have to deal with it and sometimes except its existence but we as Christians are not to harm the offender but to defend God with truth and righteousness.

Glorified suffering: Something that is not really practiced anymore. The definition given in this the article is basically an old concept of injuring one’s self to keep you on the narrow path of right.

Tarito use the crucifix as a glorified torture again not understanding Biblical history can bite you. God does not and has not suggested injuring one’s self as a means to make things right, this is a man made concept.

Forgiveness has always been God’s way of making things right since the resurrection of Jesus. Our suffering as Christians do glorify Gods name and I go back to again not knowing and understanding your Biblical text and history will mislead you from the truth.

 Genital mutilation: something Islam is known for not Christianity or Jews but Tarico has the stones to say circumcision is a form of genital mutilation talk about being out of touch and hating anything that God has commanded is but wow.

Hell: Yes hell is in the Bible because God created hell, Tarico suggest it is used to change or curb bad behavior and to a degree it is used.

Man still sins and does bad things no matter if there is a heaven or hell. If there is no hell then there is no heaven, the idea of everyone except Hitler is going to heaven is just not reality or Biblical.

Christians are not happy that people Hitler and Stalin existed but they do and did and God has made a place for them.

Christians don’t want to see anyone walk that path but it is a reality since God gave free will. If the concept of hell scares you to do the right thing and seek God out then that’s not a bad thing in my opinion.

Eternal Life: Atheist hate this because it’s not fare so they call this a fairytale. Tarico again lacks the Biblical understanding and states the problem with eternal life is it keeps people from seeing the beauty of what we already have on earth.

“The real reason that the notion of eternal life is such a bad invention, though, is the degree to which it diminishes and degrades existence on this earthly plane. With eyes lifted heavenward, we can’t see the intricate beauty beneath our feet. Devout believers put their spiritual energy into preparing for a world to come rather than cherishing and stewarding the one wild and precious world we have been given”-Torico

Not so, eternal life is just a bigger reward. What is here on this earth is be bigger in heaven and in the new earth that God will have waiting for us. Believe me I have seen some of Gods greatest creations in this country and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the next.

Male Ownership of Female Fertility: This idea is a complete misunderstanding of Biblical text to think God condones female ownership and women are slaves to men. No God celebrates women baring children as a great gift. Women were created by God to have children to continue the human race how much more of a gift from God could there be.

Bibliolatry (aka Book Worship): Now this is really stretching it and again the lack of understanding Biblical text shows us just how much lack of knowledge is at play here.

The concept of Bibliolatry is a direct contradiction of the 1st commandment and nobody that follows God and seeks the truth of Jesus worships the Bible they worships God of the Bible.

I suspect that Tarico thinks all religious idea are bad, I do feel she made some progress by adding Islam and Hindu to the list but but also loses it with some very illogical and communist remarks.

Pretty much she is reaching on most of these concepts. There is a lot of misunderstanding, hate, lack of Biblical studying and understanding of who and what God is so we can’t expect much with this blog.
