OUR PROBLEM

33

The problem is not that we do not have good laws on liberty much less religious laws of liberty. The problem is we don’t enforce laws of liberty in favor of political correctness.

The problem is we allow bad statesmen to create or reinterpret laws to favor political correctness in the name of tolerance and equality all the while not tolerating the original law, the how and why those laws were written.

The problem can be solved by society electing good statesmen that design good laws and appoint good moral and just judges.

The blame lays with us the society that refuses to take a risk in favor of their pocket books or any other material idem that we accumulate.

The blame lies in our insatiable appetite for material things over righteous and just things.

The blame lies on us when the statesmen we elect and who they appoint turn on us so they can keep themselves in power because of their increased appétite for power and material things over righteous and just things.

We are to blame, we picked out the rope, found the tree and had the statesmen put the noose over our necks and they grabbed our material chair out from under us.

Matthew 6:19-21 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust[e] destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

 

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.

WHO DO YOU FOLLOW?

martin luther

1 Corinthians 6:12 I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.

Whether we like it or not we humans follow something or somebody, we humans make a god out of something and we serve it.

I know if you’re an atheist, secularist or agnostic you will refute this claim but you would be lying to yourself.

The Christian tries to serve one god the God of the Bible but sometimes even the best intentions leads service to more than one master.

Hindi’s might serve or worship many Gods maybe even some gods that are not in the Hindu culture.

Atheist want to believe they serve no god, secularist hold on to this but it is not true we all serve someone or something otherwise your mind is dead to everything.

In general we all serve something, we all hold on to something whether we are proud of it or not we hold to something. Christian tell themselves God is my God but is he your only god?

Is fame what you seek, money, power, pleasure; these are gods to every person when they become the focal point of your life. As Christians we call this idolatry and what is an idol, it’s nothing more than a god to tide you over until you are fulfilled. Problem is these idols these gods won’t fulfill you they never have and never will. Acts 4:12; power and pleasure will not save you only Jesus can.

Christians that put God first in their lives will have a higher rate of personal success than putting other things or sharing God with other idols Proverbs 16:3 as a matter of truth we cannot share idols or God Matthew 6:24. We cannot serve two masters eventually we will throw away one and serve the other.

For the non believer who thinks God is for the weak minded you too serve something or somebody. How many are devoted to science and men like Hawkings, Dawkins or other persons of so called reason. How much time does pornography take your life, can you stay away from it from one day, two days, a week? Does money rule your house and your life, booze or drugs?

What about our toys and this goes for us all, motorcycles, cars, houses, how many of us obsess over these things so much they dictate where and what we do.

For the Christian sharing God won’t last but we can put our trust if we stand on Jesus to help us serve him and him alone. Proverbs 3:1-35 and 2 Timothy 2:15

For the Hindi or the Buddhist they care not that they follow more than one God, the Hindi expects it and the Buddhist might chalk it up to existence. Devout atheist want to deny any idea of a god is possible but one only needs to look how important idols are to the human. The human may not believe or except the idea of idolatry but that idea is irrelevant in reality especially if you believe you live in a world that is relative.

Who will you serve, people of power or influence (dictators, presidents, men of influence, rock starts celebrities) or pleasure (sex pornography, TV, maybe gambling) or will you reject them all and serve Jesus, the one that frees you from your idols. Galatians 3:22  But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe

whoopi

Ignorant  statement of the week has to go to Whoopi Goldberg for her interview on CNN as she weighed in on Pope Francis’s visit to the United States. Breibart gives a great story well worth reading but if you don’t have the time let’s just take a few lines to go over some of her absurdity.

Whoopi a professed humanist states “this guy, you know, he read the book. He gets it.” You mean Pope Francis reads his Bible well we should hope so, he is kind of the head guy at the Catholic Church and he does profess to know Jesus and often tells how you too can know him.  Oh yeah the book that is called the Bible you can say that on CNN Whoopi you won’t burst into flames.

Whoopi’s main concern is Pope Francis states there is nothing in the Bible about abortion so we ought not to condemn women for getting them. Interesting enough the CNN reporter did ask what about thou shall not kill; that would be the 6th commandment CNN and I’m shocked somebody at CNN thinks abortion is murder.

Now mind you one cannot expect Sir Francis to have to explain every statement he makes, like Whoopi says the Pope reads the Bible and maybe you Miss Goldberg should too.

Open to Leviticus 24:17, then to Deuteronomy 5:17, then to 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 then to Romans 6:23 (little bit of salvation in that one) and then maybe top it off with Luke 10:27. There is enough scripture about not killing or murdering as there is about God’s salvation.

Mind you Whoopi just shrugged off the CNN reporter’s question on thou shalt not kill (again wow even CNN thinks abortion is murder) to say that well if we follow that commandment “thou shalt not kill” then what about war. Well Whoopi I don’t know what about war; too late to ask Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini those questions maybe try asking Boko Haram.

Whoopi goes on to ramble that Pope gets it because he does not judge or criticize a woman for getting abortion. Well the issue is Christians are not judging women who get the abortion but those who deceive women and spread the lies of needing an abortion.

I can see it looks like an easy way out for anyone to have an abortion, to get sucked into this lie that it’s my body, my decision my right to have an abortion and that is plainly a lie from groups like Planned Parenthood. Real choice is keeping it or giving the child up for adoption, choosy moms choose life.

It’s not the person having the abortion that is necessarily a condemning factor but the person that deceive another into having an abortion that is most upsetting.

Pope Francis and the Catholic Church are not for and have never been for abortion for any reason. Yes it’s easy to understand why a woman would get an abortion so there are no excuses for the condemnation and judgment to those who would lie to somebody that is in need of salvation not a surgical procedure.

 

CULTURE WAR

culture-war

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE 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.

 

IS THE PRESIDENT A CHRISTIAN ?

obama atheist

Is President Obama a Christian?

A question that keeps popping up now and then when our President seems to overwhelming give Islam a pass for everyday atrocities while questioning the legitimacy of Christians and Christianity.

So is President Obama a Christian, I do not think he is and if I’m wrong then the President can make his case and prove those of us that feel this way why we are incorrect.

Why can I say no he’s not a Christian, what gives me the right to say this and if the President is not a Christian is he Muslim?

I do not believe our President is Muslim as well, I think he has strong ties and sympathy to Islam but does not practice Islam I believe our President is strong leftest Atheist.

Obama’s father was Muslim as was his grandfather and those are two figures spent a good amount of time in Obama life. His step father was Atheist and he helped raise Obama in his very young youth.

Yes Obama did have drive otherwise there is no way he would have become President but I think the President is somewhat of a lazy man and to take the time and effort to know and practice Islam is something Obama probably would not make time for, golf is very important.

Understanding that Obama’s father was a Muslim he also was a socialist and as we can see by how Obama views the way America should be makes it easy to suspect that our President is a socialist himself. If you understand socialist then you know they tend to embrace the atheist point of view when politics is involved.

I believe Obama was raised an atheist, has strong ties to Islam with his father and grandfather but adding his socialist ideology he never stopped believing in the atheist ideas and it’s an easier way to live a life since atheism is meaningless.

Fast forward to Obama coming to America and going to college, the two collages that he attend Harvard Law and Columbia are very liberal progressive fitting his socialism and atheist views. But he would will have a hard time running for political office with Islamic ties and an atheist ideology so what do you do? Get referred to Reverend Jeremiah Wright, say Wright converted you from Islam and your good everyone loves a good conversion story.

Problem with this is the truth, Wright pastor of the UCC in Chicago is not the kind of pastor that preaches conversion and salvation but rather divides people by race, color and class. If you voted for Barack Obama because he was converted to Christianity well I’m sorry to say you fell for a lie.

Misquotes, yes Obama misquotes God’s word quite often as a matter fact every time he tries to quote the Bible he gets it wrong.

The latest slam on Christianity has Obama telling the world the Christians of today are no better or worse than Islam because of the crusades that took place over 900 years ago I guess he forgot about the reformation age of the church oops Obama did it again.

No Christian with a heart that has been saved by God’s Grace misquotes the Bible over and over again without asking for forgiveness. No Christian that has been saved by God’s grace would condemn his fellow man of something that took place over 900 years ago.

Even if you were not really a Bible pounding Christian like many of our former Presidents before but have expressed their belief in God don’t sympathize with a religion that is opposite of the religion you claim to believe in.

No I do not believe president Obama is a Christian, I don’t think he believes there is a God. I think he has made deals and sympathies with Islam for whatever reason but I have a feeling our President is an atheist that is willing to do whatever it takes by pandering to Christians when it needs to be done and pander to Muslims when that needs to be done all to further his socialist agenda.

ROB BELL HAS JUMPED THE SHARK

Seems like once a year I have to give out this award to somebody or something so considering the apostasy that has been committed Rob Bell is the winner.

Rob Bell has jumped the shark in biblical fashion, who is Rob Bell you may ask or if you watch the OWN channel then maybe you know but if not he’s former Mega Church pastor of Mars Hill in Grand Rapids. Rob bell is now the man at the Oprah Winfrey Network OWN.

Once known as an evangelical in main stream media but let’s face the fact that the main stream media really does not know what true evangelical Christianity is.

The latest has Bell becoming an apostasy, he has turned away from the Bible and has shrugged off the word of God, the Holy Spirit and the Saints who helped write and define Christianity as we know it.

Bells latest quote on OWN in response to Oprah’s question did he think Christians are close to accepting homosexuality. Bell “we’re moments away from the church accepting it,” and that Christians needed to stop relying on its holy text as a basis for opposing homosexuality:

This above quote has Bell asking you and I to stop relying on Biblical text in opposing what are in Gods words is a sin and confirmed by the Holy Spirit a sin. (Honestly I get what Bell is saying here but this is exactly what I mean when I wrote in the beginning of this blog, Christians cannot stop relying on God’s word when it comes to morality, Bell has truly lost it)

If you don’t understand what just took place with this quote and feel the Bible really only has one passage that is against homosexuality and it’s Old Testament then I might ask you to stop right here and get your Bible out and read. Leviticus 18 all of it, 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11, Romans 1: 26-28, 1 Timothy 1: 10, and finally Romans 1:32 to set the tone of why people who practice and condone deviancy will rarely stop.

Bell goes on “I think culture is already there and the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense, when you have in front of you flesh-and-blood people who are your brothers and sisters, and aunts and uncles, and co-workers and neighbors, and they love each other and just want to go through life with someone.” Interesting but invalid quote but typical OWN and Oprah rhetoric, do what makes you happy no matter what the consequences to you or anyone else.

Bell’s two quotes are enough to understand who Bell is not what he has become but I say who he is. Bell has sold out to the Oprah doctrine, be true to yourself not to God, do what makes you happy, not honor God, seek happiness wherever you can find it instead of seeking God for happiness. He has forsaken an intellectual philosophy of Gods natural law and therefore cannot understand why Bible believing Christians oppose non traditional love and deviant sexual concepts.

There is more at stake here than personal happiness. God condones behavior that is not only beneficial to one’s self but to God himself and to others those are in and around you that will be impacted by your behavior the opposite of this is plain selfishness.

Did Bell really know God, I don’t believe Bell truly knew who God and Jesus was and to this day still does not know. Since Bell has made these quotes several articles have been written on Bell and his Wife wondering how and why Bell could lose his understanding of God’s word and belief in God’s natural and moral law and can or will Bell and his wife return to Christianity reality.

Yes Bell can but how will we know, Bell has gone from one doctrine to another one ideology to another. Bell has professed to be a man of God and to teach God’s word to people but now he’s Oprah’s spiritual guide, not her guide to The God of the Bible but her no judgy, no hell, no moral limits guide to a life of meaningless nonsense, some what cult like.

In order for Bell to return to Christianity of the Bible Bell needs to do this, ask God for forgiveness for being an apostasy and leading people away from The God of the Bible. Bell needs to cut all ties with OWN and renounce any relevance to Oprah and her philosophy. He needs to never again be in a leadership position but be a humble servant to God and the church he chooses to serve. Bell might even think about giving away much of his earnings from the OWN and any earnings that dealt with leading people away from The God of the Bible. This may seem extreme but Bell needs to prove to not only true Christians that he has repented but to God as well he owes God that much.
