Chuck Colson finally gets to rest – we had better get to work!

April 22nd, 2012 · 7:49 am

I found myself to be truly saddened by news of the passing of Chuck Colson. He was a wonderful man who stood for the things of God in a country going to hell.Chuck Colson graduates I will miss his insightful commentary, but know that he fought the good fight and is now with our Lord. To me this is a notice given of the possible passing of a point of no return in this country, as we are losing the voices that stood for sanity and Godliness.

From an article at WND:

In a Feb. 3 video message, he saw the larger issue of the threat to religious liberty.

“We have come to the point – I say this very soberly – when if there isn’t a dramatic change in circumstances, we as Christians may well be called upon to stand in civil disobedience against the actions of our own government,” Colson said in the video.

“That would break my heart as a former Marine captain, loving my country. But I love my God more.”

Colson emphasized that his mind was already made up: “I will stand for the Lord, regardless of what my state tells me.”

What George Zimmerman’s arrest and trial means for America

I really hate racism, or to be much more accurate – I believe that God loves all people the same (He created them all, didn’t He?), and He expects me to be like Him. Trayvon Twitter pic It is this attitude that God used to bless my air conditioning business for 20 years, as I would happily work for the Hispanics, the “blacks”’, and the Asians – so I was always busy.

Obama Declares martial law – Suspends congress and elections.

April 8th, 2012 · 6:18 pm

The following is a fictitious scenario, not news, though it is quite possible that it will indeed happen.
satanic symbolism
As more and more information gets out that Obama is not eligible to be president of the US of A, coupled with many more instances of unconstitutional abuses of power, many people carefully watch the 2012 election results. A rising tide of public sentiment that the election results have (obviously) been tampered with in order to guarantee that the win goes to Obama causes several state legislatures to declare that they will not abide by the official results and will no longer send any tax monies to the federal government until a satisfactory investigation has been conducted.

Being Salt

January 15th, 2011 · 11:15 pm

SALT And LIGHT – Who are we in this world, Really?
SALT? Without salt, our bodies shut down – quit – die. These days when I go outside and work I have to take in extra salt or I suffer horrible leg cramps at night. Years ago there was a ‘Star Trek’ episode about a creature that would suck all the salt out of a person – killing them. This is what Satan (and the world system of religion) does to us Christians – Christ’s church, Christ’s bride. He’s killing us.
The Bible says we are to be salt and light. Without light, we are not just blind, but we die, too. The light (God’s TRUTH, The Christ) energizes life – creates food to sustain us. But let’s get back to the salt for now. The Bible says if the salt loses its savor, it’s good for what? NOTHING.

Matthew 5:13
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

It is thrown out and trampled by men! Sound like what is happening today to the message (our message) of Christ?
What does God mean when he says it loses its savor (taste)?
Let me read a passage:

False Christians & Halloween – Are you an Idolater?

October 22nd, 2010 · 9:31 am

Y’know, God made some things really clear so that even those of us that are thick-sculled (like me) could understand them. That’s what the ten commandments were all about – they didn’t list every individual sin that we could perpetrate against God – just the really ‘big’ ones. All the rest fall somewhere under those ten . In fact, the one Jesus told us is the greatest commandment – You will love the Lord (your God) with all your heart and mind [Matthew 22:37-39] – covers it all. God stated this commandment in order to help us keep our relationship with Him, as sin will come between us. It also separates the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the tares. All Christians wrestle with sin in their lives, but there are things that are the ‘big easys’, and He listed them for us. You know: have no other gods before Him, don’t commit murder, don’t commit adultery, etc.

Here’s where we get into offending people, but that’s OK, Jesus was prophesied to be a ‘stone of stumbling and a rock of offense’ and said of Himself that He came not to bring peace, but to set brother against brother, etc. Since we are to emulate Him, here I go:

We are told to test ourselves, to know if we are of the faith. When God said sinners will not enter the Kingdom of God the context is one of continuing in sin without repentance. We may struggle with some sins, but we repent. It is in continuing in sin that we exclude ourselves from relationship with God.Selling out to the world - this is what witches, pagans, and satanists laugh about! Remember the parables of the tares, the sower of seed, and the prodigal son: no relationship = no salvation. Period. So, can someone who murders and continues to murder be saved? Of course not. The same applies with adultery, homosexuality , and, maybe especially, idolatry [1 Corinthians 6:8-10]. First commandment. God made this plain so even the simple-minded could understand it. Just read the Bible and pray for understanding. Do you do that? IF WE LOVE GOD WE WILL SEEK HIM IN PRAYER AND IN HIS WORD [Matthew 6:32-34]. First commandment. You do that and some things will slap you in the face: Idolatry is not loving or seeking after God. Witchcraft is idolatry. Continue reading…

Coulter, Farah, and Quran burning – You will know them by their fruit

September 9th, 2010 · 9:49 am

Proverbs 12:18 (New American Standard Bible)
There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword,
But the tongue of the wise brings healing.

We all like to be comfortable within our own ideologies. We prefer to do what feels good to us much more than doing what will ultimately be the right thing to do, if that right thing makes us uncomfortable or doesn’t contribute to our glory, power, and comfort. For most people this is perfectly fine. For most this is perfectly natural – and to be expected. Unfortunately there is a group of people on this here planet that have been tasked with doing what will get them in trouble, cause themselves hardship, divide them from most other people, and what will cause others to likewise be uncomfortable. Those who belong to this group are collectively known as Christians. Now I’m not talking about the tares, the false Christians, the fakes, the CINOs, the comfy ones…. I mean the committed Christians who took Jesus Christ at His word. So what kind of things did He tell Christians to be doing? Hey, go read the New Testament and you’ll find He said things like ‘speak the truth in love’, ‘love your enemies’, ‘spread the gospel’, ‘repent of your sins’, ‘show mercy as you have been shown mercy’, and such. The Bible also gives us a list of what kind of fruit these Christians will be putting out in Galatians 5: 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
This brings us to where we can examine the little feud going on between Ann Coulter and Joseph Farah. Actually , it would seem the feud is only on Ann’s side, as she is the one calling names and using invective. In fact, she has said that Farah and those of us who think she is giving tacit approval to homosexuality by speaking at “Homocon” are “fake Christians”. So far, what I have seen of Farah’s response to how Coulter is behaving is based on Biblically sound principles and is evidence of the fruit a Christian is supposed to produce. He has stated the facts and acted in the best interest of Christians, while not acting capriciously to Coulter. Coulter, on the other hand, has resorted to name-calling (used by those who are angry, embarrassed, and who cannot justify their actions), calling Farah “swine” and a “publicity whore”. For the life of me I can’t seem to find this in the Bible as acceptable behavior for a Christian. Farah, in contrast, Continue reading…

The biggest case of identity theft in America to date.

April 20th, 2010 · 4:58 pm

These days we all must be concerned with identity theft, but there is a current case of identity theft that has and will continue to affect each and every one of us even though we will probably never meet the person it concerns. That person is the President of the United States (POTUS).
IMpeach the IMPOTUS
If you had dealings with a person and found out that they were a pretender – an impostor and NOT who you actually thought you were dealing with – would you keep referring to that person by the name they had stolen (ignoring the fact that they were not who they say they are), or would you demand to know what was going on and cease to do business with them? After watching all the things going on with Barak Obama and doing a little digging, I was forced to conclude that this man is, indeed, an impostor. He is not the POTUS legally, and therefore I can NOT call him by that title. Instead, I will now refer to him as the IMPOTUS, to use a term used by others to mean “I aM President of the United States”, but should mean “IMpostor President of the United States“. This man is not acting as President, he is instead acting as a dictator – trampling the Constitution and ignoring law. For an condensed explanation on why I believe this read the article “Is Obama Stupid and Lazy?” at Western Journalism.

In some ways I pity this man, no matter how anti-American and anti-Christ he is. It is obvious from his speech when there is no teleprompter that he is really not very smart, and also obvious that he is being manipulated by those who put him into office. Here we have what appears to be an American black man, who was raised as a white man and who is being told what to do by white men in order to subjugate all of us – black and white – into slavery. He is in fact, a slave, a puppet of his masters. Here he is, represented as final emancipation of the black community, used by those who hate the blacks and who will eventually use him to embarrass the black people (and all Americans, for that matter). This has already happened in the rest of the world. They are laughing at him – and us. This has also made the IMPOTUS quite impotent concerning world affairs.

Barak Hussain Obama was given a free ride through our school system and our political system. The media, owned by the very people who put him into power, also gave him a free ride. He has been taught Marxist ideology and he has lived the Marxist dream: socialism – you get everything free without having to work for it. No wonder he wants to create a socialist state here, he has been manipulated into believing that Marxism works! Unfortunately he is actually a slave who thinks he is the POTUS. Unfortunately for my black brothers and sisters he is a black slave of white European bankers. My pity for him is tempered, however, by the fact that he is a traitor to our country who is violating his oath to protect our Constitution. He is joined in this treachery by Ms. Pelosi, who obviously knew he was not a natural-born citizen and had 49 of 50 Democratic Party nomination papers changed to drop the wording certifying him as qualified to hold the office under the Constitution (I guess she missed one…). UPDATE: Apparently Hawaii’s (yes, Hawaii!) Section 11-113 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, requires that the political party of a candidate must provide a statement that the candidate is legally qualified to serve as President under the provisions of the United States Constitution, so Pelosi couldn’t change that one. (See this & and this.)

OUR identity as a nation is being stolen. America, I plead with you to wake up and demand that this IMPOTUS be IMpeached IMmediately!

Pain… and the best laid plans of men (this man) -updated

February 23rd, 2010 · 11:18 am

I am one of those who has not been a stranger to pain in my life, while at the same time I have been spoiled by being healthy and physically active. During the last few years, however, I have occasionally been bed-ridden with a back problem that is accompanied with almost unbearable pain. This is the case at the moment – I can do nothing but lay here and hope and pray that my vertebra get back in place soon. For me it is a time of not only feeling powerless and useless, but a feeling of being trapped, much like claustrophobia. Yesterday morning, unable to move, I was fighting rising panic. And then there is the fear of another back spasm with its blinding pain…
During such times I must trust God that He will bring good even from this – perhaps from writing, doing research, and from inner reflection about my relationship with and reliance upon Him. It is also a time to realize that when I am doing just fine I need to remember and pray for those in difficult circumstances.

UPDATE, Thursday, March 4th: I’ve been working this week – rigged a cart with a lift to help me move equipment. It has been a little painful, but getting better. Two more weeks available to get it in shape before I go parachuting. I’ll brace up just in case, but if the past is any indicator – all should be well by then. Looking forward to stepping out into the wind!

Evidence of repentance, or: Real Change – I’m not who I used to be.

February 20th, 2010 · 7:35 pm

Perhaps the most important question we as humans ever encounter is “Who am I?” By this I mean “What do I represent to others and to God?” Are we trustworthy? Liars? Wise? Foolish? Loyal? Selfish? The list goes on… but the point is: we decide who we are by what we believe and who we follow. Our actions provide evidence as to what those beliefs really are and who we really follow. As the old saying goes; the proof is in the pudding, or, as the Bible puts it, the fruit reveals what kind of tree is present:

Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Notice I said this question is perhaps the most important, but not necessarily what concerns an individual the most. Self-centeredness often makes us overlook this question because we either don’t want to examine ourselves or don’t care about the question as long as we get what we want. For Christians, however, the question is paramount, for our very salvation hinges on it. If we do not examine ourselves daily we will end up denying Christ by our actions:

2 Cor 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

1 Cor 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Titus 2:13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
1 ¶ But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
