You Cannot Claim to be Christian AND Support Abortion.

This title is similar to one I read somewhere on the Web, it was good, but there is more to it. Christians must be consistence in every part of our life’s.

Christians & Abortion

Child Praying

Abortion is murder, the Bible is clear on the subject, as I heard and wrote recently the difference between the born and the unborn is SLED.

Size – We cannot justify murder do to size, to we kill short people tall people when do they change the rules for children those who have been born.

Level of Development – This too does not justify murder, do we start to pick on those with birth defects after their born, would we kill them?

Environment – If this was justification should we murder those because of were they live, the poor or tribes in the middle nowhere, your environment does not give anyone the right to kill you

Dependency –   If we used this as justification for murder, the poor, old weak and sick could qualify.

Abortion is Murder, and if you vote for and support a a politician you support abortion and murder.

Christians and Sexuality

 

As Christians we cannot “be tolerant” of homosexuality, transgender or any other self proclaimed sexuality. We are not supposed to hate those who sin, if we are honest we are sinners and far from perfect, it is only the Grace of God that we are saved through faith that we can we forgiven, but we are not without sin.

Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

These and other verses are taken from the https://www.openbible.info

Again we cannot support candidates , parties or politicians that support these things and live a close honest relationship with God

  Christ Like, not Worldly morals

We can be fooled if we try to be moral especially when those morals are based on mans terms, we are told to be Christ like

2 Corinthians 4:4 In their case the God of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

We cannot live one way at work, one way at home and another at Church, as Christians everywhere and everything should be based on Gods Word.

Closing

Being a Christian is not easy, the world hates us, no matter how many times we say we don’t hate the sinner and just the sin the world will not hear that, they will call us bigots, intolerant, remember they hated Christ before they hated us.

John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.

We are not perfect, we make mistakes, the difference is we admit them and ask for forgiveness, if we remember that and communicate that, they will still hates us, but our goal should be to be truthful, consistent in every aspect of our lifes.

Patriotism, Have a Healthy Pride in Your Country

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. – President Trump.

 

ca. 1980-2001

Patriotism has never been a bad word, or a dangerous belief. It is not prejudice, it is not isolationism it is what being an American is , has been and should be.

It was patriots who founded this nation, they were (and successfully so in my view) in search of a more perfect , not a perfect Union.

Many patriots have died defending this nation, they were from every race, religion rich and poor, they were Americans.

The Press

 

Patriots are found (though more rarely in recent years) in our press. They bring facts and information they are the peoples eyes and ears to keep this government in check, a Constitutional Republic, the true unbiased reporters are patriots, again their religion, skin color none of things are important, it is their love of this great nation that that is the great equalizer it is what makes them patriots.

Elected Officials

 

Elected officials that are there to make this country great, that do not care about the party, but the people. They do the right thing no matter how hard or what the consequence they uphold their oath, these men and woman are patriots.

 

First Responders

Our First responders, putting our lives ahead of their own, working long hours for little pay or reward. First responders are hated when they do their job and loved when they do their job, everyday when they go to work they go with the knowledge that they may not come home, these great men and woman are patriots and yet again their background is unimportant.

 

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. – President Trump

The day after 9/11 American flags were everywhere we stood united against our enemy it did not matter poor, rich, white skin brown skin we were Americans.

The Turn , Patriotism Demonized

Under Barack Obama, suddenly being patriotic would get you on a list, labeled a bigot  it became a bad thing.

President Lincoln said “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”  The Bible is not silent on the subject please follow the link below.

Matthew 12:22-28New King James Version (NKJV)

 

Over the past 8-10 years the anti-American far left demonized patriotism, they purposely tried (and were pretty successful ) at dividing our house, we the people. These people are in fact traitors maybe all do not deserver hanging, but none deserve to go unpunished.

Unite or Die

People who would cede our nations laws to a foreign power such as the UN are in fact evil traitors. The hate freedom, they hate us, and you guessed it they hate everyone of us regardless of they very labels they invented to divide.

White skinned, brown skinned, rich poor, Christian, Atheist. We are all Americans , we can all be patriots. The picture above is old, but the truth it tells is the same, we will have to unite as a people or die under the boot of tyranny.

May God Bless this great nation and all of our patriots that come from all walks of life to preserve the freedom so many  have left us to protect and may we leave not only the same freedoms for our children and their children to enjoy but the promise of a more perfect union, not perfect we are after all only human.

Start your day in God’s Word

Start your day in Gods Word

Proverbs 2:1-9

1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

Such a treasure wisdom is, and it is even laid out step by step how we can receive it, yet so many are living in poverty. As Gods children he wants us to have wisdom, and we need it more and more and the church age ends.

Ecclesiastes 10:10

If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.

As we study, grow in God’s Word and fellowship we are putting an edge on our Christian iron which we will need more and more as time goes on and Christ return grows nearer. Staying active as Christians and Patriots requires prayer and growth. Sharpen the blunt iron, make it a little easier.

Heavenly Father help us remember your Word each day, be with us as we fellowship whenever and wherever we gather. Lord help us to not only keep and edge on the Spirit but to remember to put on the entire armor of God as we face the challenges of each day.

Proverbs 1:23-33(KJV)

The consequence of not seeking Wisdom

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

 

We know that not listening to God has consequences, not being saved being the biggest of all. But it is clear that ignoring Gods Wisdom results is bad things, the one being that God will ignore us in our time of need if we ignore him.

Always seek wisdom, it comes in many forms and from many places and even many people. God always finds the tool to best deliver his words of truth, we just need to recognize it.

The news today shows us we must be prepared as Christians for what is to come. We have to be ministers of His Word without God’s wisdom we would not have a chance. We have seen but a small sample of the worlds desire to show and act upon its hate for Jesus and His followers here in America and there is no reason to think we will never be attack in the same manner as many other Christians are every day. This past election was more critical then we will ever know I believe that God will use Donald Trump to give us one more chance on the world stage to spread the word of God without fear, even here at home.

Heavenly Father please help us seek Your Wisdom in all we do. Let our lights so shine Lord that everyone around us knows there is something different about us. Lord be with us should the time come and persecutions increases that we proudly stand on you Word and Wisdom.

Amen

           Grace and Trials

 

When trials come God; gives us grace

He stills our hearts and helps us face,

the fiery trials that Satan sends;

He gives us grace the victory win.

 

And when our body aches with pain,

He gives us grace to praise His name,

and look beyond our weakened state

to fields of glory that await.

 

Praise God for trials that come our way,

for God is molding us like clay.

He gives us trials that we may see,

that more like Jesus we will be.

Enough Already

Shut Up, Grow up Step Up

 

Shut Up, Grow up Step Up
knock it off
Shut Up!

It is time we shut up, grow up  step up, this applies to us all. Left, right, middle its time.

Republicans and Conservatives have a right to gloat a little 8 years of a President that we really did not like or trust  is over. Don’t be hateful and forgive if needed.

Liberals who do not understand the electoral college or a democratic republic ignore the media and learn. Don’t get your news or opinions from talk shows and do not trust the media, research as much as you can yourself.

Grow Up!

Mocking  the losers is good release, but yes we have to now get to the business at hand.

Those who are so upset that they are not functional, that lectured the right before the election to accept the outcome stop.

Step Up!

 

The time has come to step up, our freedoms demand our participation, not all have taking an oath, but by enjoying these freedoms you have agreed to support all of them and for everyone equally

 

Job One

After Shut Up, Grow up Step Up we know need to get to work. We the people, left, right, middle we have a lot of work to do. We must protect our place as the real leaders of this Republic.

Benjamin Franklin famously said this in response to a question ( I borrowed it from the link above) what form of government do we have – a republic or a monarchy?  He replied, “A republic if you can keep it.”

We need to stop thinking our rights, our Constitution don’t fit todays world that it is a “living document in need of update, WRONG!

No need to go over all of our rights but the first two are firmly in our control and intended to give We the people the Power as intended. Study it,  here is a great free online college course that everyone should consider,

The Wrap Up

Elections are rough and ugly, even as a Christian I sometimes go over the top. I would always encourage people to seek Christ, but in Christianity it is a choice. It does not change my love for you as my neighbors in the world.

These ideas don’t require you to be saved, just human.

  • Don’t trust the Internet or the Media Study.
  • Respect everyone else’s First Amendment Rights, after all if we all agreed we would not need to protect freedom of speech.
  • Hold the government accountable and don’t expect free stuff, the hidden price tag is your political soul.
  • It’s ok to judge people, but do it by their character, their actions not by their race, religion or country of origin.
  • Always remember that we the people must never be divided, we can disagree but in the end walk away from those leaders that promote division.

May God bless you all, our Country and our President Elect, time to move on.

The Day After November 9th, Will Division Reign?

The Day After

500487286_640
We will not stand

The day after election day 2016 we will be in mostly the exact same place we are today, divided.  Division already at an all time high will be pushed further to the brink, moving this country in my opinion in  acts of civil disobedience beyond anything we have ever see. I would not be surprised to se us break down into complete anarchy or even civil war. The scary part? is does not matter who wins. Nether Trump or Hillary have ran on any kind of unity platform, from the name calling between the candidates to the extreme hate of supporters on both sides for their counter parts.

Hillary

Obama, perhaps the most divisive President in history at least lied when he ran and pretended while campaigning to be everyone’s candidate. The Clintons are well known for the ability to hold grudges and skirt the law, I have no don’t that her administration will attack the constitution , Christians all of our rights with a special interest in taking our gun rights away.

Trump

Trump is a big unknown, in full disclosure I support him, I am a typical right leaning independent, I will not be rioting just because Hilary wins, as messed up as the systems is that is not what you do, however BLM (Hate Group), the “new black panther party” and the Soros supported occupy thugs are violent and based on the leaked e-mails so are the Hilary people. So even if Trump tries to run from the middle and give everyone a seat I can totally see the Obama/Hillary hate machine starting violent civil unrest and forcing the hand of typically calm patriots to defend against such actions.

The People

ca. 1980-2001
We the People

 

Finally it will come down to we the people, we know without a doubt the racism has increased in the last 8 years, the current party in power has used it to promote its agenda by keeping the people separated. This has continued into the election and to the supporters.

I like Trump so I am a Racist , If you like Hillary you are a socialist. These statements are NOT universally true in fact the far right and left of each party is really the minority in my view, but between the media helping full the racism and the Obama hate groups out in full swing those of in the middle do not get heard, we do not matter. That battle is lost we are a house divided and on the 9th no matter who wins unless we unite we will fall, our Constitutional Republic will be gone and the only winners will be the 1% and the ruling class. The day after we the people need to stand as one.

The Media

free-press

Kudos to the media they have fueled the anti-American movement for years, they love socialism. You can see it in their ads, interviews they don’t even pretend anymore. What really makes me wonder is how so many of us are to stupid to see what they have done, and really worse yet what they have done to themselves.

The First Amendment has been hack away little by little, again you may like it, for now but sooner or later it will be your speech they limit. Hate speech in my opinion is a made up word the 1A is not intended to protect  speech everyone agrees with, why would we even need the right? The problem with calling everything “hate speech” is in doing so you prevent legitimate debate, and it miss proportionality  affects religion.

As an example the Bible I follow is clear on homosexuality, it is a sin. That same Bible also tells me that to hate a person is a sin, and to hate them for a sin? well that’s just hypocrisy. The media however calls this hate speech, I suppose the media and politicians hate the word sin because it includes lying and stealing that said as a Christian I to sin and fall short of the glory of God, with these facts in hand hate speech becomes instead my ability to worship my God as I am commanded. I will not get into the cake baking argument but preachers should have no obligation to perform a ceremony that they are taught is a sin.

But I am trailing off, in short the media one of the only companies where their product is protected by our bill of rights has become blatantly dishonest and Bias, a fact that should worry us all. The day after the media could make our break us as a nation.

Hope

tumblr_mc86drmjze1qjam55o1_500_large

First and foremost I want to be wrong, if Trump or Hillary wins I want us to once again to start to unite, it is not impossible. Hillary could be using Obamas ability to give a speech and mobilize the vote and may actually try to unite the country. Trump when you listen to the entirety of his speech’s is not a bigot , between media snippets, loaded questions and his tendency to think everyone gets what he is trying to say. He may through his actions prove to be able to unite, something Obama has not only failed at, he has failed intentionally.

As I stated I am for Trump, his abortion stance and first and second amendment rights stances best fit my believes, the fact that Bush and Romney hate him is a plus.

In the end it is we the people who need to take control because without that not only will the winner fail, we might just lose our country. Besides the end of commercials I will be praying for the day after.

HOW STUPID ARE LIBERAL ANTI-GUN NUTS?

BeFunky_funny_lion_wallpaper-1024x768.png
Think about it here is another example ask yourself this – How many murders were committed by people who fall into the category in the story below?? Like many of the gun-grabbing Nazis ideas it is not based on fact but fear.
Legal gun owners and citizens continue to die, not because we need more or tighter gun laws but because the criminals and terrorist DON’T FOLLOW THE LAW AND NEVER WILL. The fact is that an over regulated right (just think about that for a minute – a regulated right) leads to more deaths and crime over and over again.
We just lost 5 of the nations finest, military heroes because the socialist agenda of the liberal democrat party is obsessed with prevent honest Americans form defending them self’s. To steal one of their lines HOW MANY MORE MUST DIE because of the socialist jack-booted criminals we call progressives.
Nothing could be more unpatriotic then trying to disarm a populous for the soul purpose of control and oppression all the while pretending to care about people, murder and crime.
Tyrants EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM
