Out of the Office

I won't be posting much for the next few weeks. I have Vacation Bible School coming up and I need to pray and prepare for that. I'm also in the midst of trying to sell my house so that I can complete the contract we have signed on some property. I'm also in the midst of the busy season at work.

In other words, I need to spend my time on things other than reading and writing for my blog.

I appreciate all my readers (both of you). Please check back in about a month. I should be back up and running by then.

Until then...

God is good...all the time.
He loves you.
He wants to show you that He loves you, but He won't do it against your will and He won't do it on your terms - but on His.

His way is always better than ours.

Psalm 19:1: "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handiwork."

APA in the Beginnings of Reversal on Homosexuality?

In September of last year I wrote about the APA’s removal of homosexuality from its list of deviant behaviors, and how it was obvious that this move was coerced by threats from the radical homosexual community. I further exposed the fact that the vote was by no means unanimous nor even did it set a mandate for all psychologists to follow.

In light of the revelations set forth in that article, I find the news this week especially interesting.

APA Revises “Gay Gene” Theory

Gay Gene Claim Suddenly Vanishes

Could it be that members of the APA are realizing what a mistake they made, and how they’ve opened Pandora’s Box to release a legion of sexual deviants onto the landscape to do whatsoever they will – with no restraints and no accountability?
I'd guess that they have, and they're trying to determine the best way to do damage control and redeem themselves for their egregious mistake.

Wanda Sykes - Hate Speech

I've listened to Rush for years on an irregular basis, but enough to say that I've never ever heard him wish death on anyone. So when I heard about and watched the video of Obama getting a good laugh from some 2nd rate comedienne saying that she hoped Rush's kidneys failed, it just reaffirmed for me my belief that liberals are the real haters. While conservative pundits criticize policies and ideals, liberals tend to stoop to name calling - more times than not because they can't make a valid, intelligent case for their positions.

If you watch the video I linked to above, you'll notice that not everyone was rolling in the aisle at the kidney joke. Even some of these liberals obviously thought she went too far...and managed to get a nervous laugh out so as not to be "uncool" by not laughing at her sick joke. She noticed it too, because she even remarked that she knew they were laughing on the inside. Right, Wanda. You are just so funny.

Sykes, a lesbian, said recently " the passage of California’s Proposition 8 made her feel like she was 'attacked'."

“Now, I gotta get in their face,” she said. “I’m proud to be a woman. I’m proud to be a black woman, and I’m proud to be gay.”

I would say you are a pretty good attacker yourself. Made a point to mention Rush's former addiction to pain meds. Getting addicted to pain medications is not quite the same as doing coke and smoking weed socially. Another low blow against Rush that was uncalled for.

Hateful. Liberals. Gays. They talk about tolerance, but they have none themselves. They talk about hate - but they know it better than anyone.

As for Obama laughing at the possibility of Rush's kidneys failing...

I'm with Rush. I hope Obama fails too, because if he succeeds, our country will cease to exist as we know it.

And my kidneys are just fine, thank you.

Should Christians Carry Weapons?

I’ve heard some say that for a Christian to carry a gun is unbiblical and that Jesus would condemn it.

“Turn the other cheek”, they say. The actual verse itself in Matthew says “But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

If someone were to walk up to me and slap me, I would be tempted to slap them back…but if I did, I believe I would be in disobedience to God.

However, a slap to the face is entirely different than a loaded gun or other lethal weapon being brandished against me or someone defenseless. Jesus did not say,”… whosever shall stab you with a sword, turn to him the other side also.”

I also hear from these same people that Jesus reprimanded Peter for drawing his sword in the garden of Gethsemane.

And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear. Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?” Matthew 26:51-54

Read it again. Peter was not reprimanded because of what he did. He was reprimanded because of WHEN he did it. Mark does not even record the reprimand. In Luke’s account in chapter 22, he mentions that several of Jesus’s followers were armed. “When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?”
Jesus's reply, after Peter hastily cut of the ear of one of the high priest’s servants, was “Suffer ye thus far,” and then He healed the man’s ear. In other words, “Now is not the time.”

Jesus was in command. He said if He desired, His heavenly Father would supply legions of angels to protect Him. But this was not the time and place for Peter to defend, because Jesus was on a mission…and that mission was the cross.

Peter carried a sword with him everywhere he went…including the time he spent with Jesus over a period of about 3 years. Never once does Scripture record Jesus reprimanding Peter for carrying the sword. The other followers carried as well…and again – no reprimand from Jesus, Who is God Himself.

Should Christians carry weapons?

That sword by Peter’s side in today’s world would most likely be a 9mm.

Stopping Iran hinges on peace talks with the Palestinians???

Melanie Phillips' article entitled "Obama Prepares to Throw Israel Under the Bus" is disturbing and should make Americans who have long supported Israel sit up and take notice.

When will Obama and the liberal left come to the realization that Iran and other Muslim countries like it will never be satisfied with anything but the total annihilation of the State of Israel. To say that keeping Iran in line is contingent on talks with the thugs in Palestine is likesaying keeping one dog from attacking your cat is contingent on allowing the other neighbor's dog full access to your cat as he stands at the fence growling and salivating at your pet.

In keeping with the theme, Zo has a new video that seems apropos.

We're from the Government. You Can Trust Us

A recent audit of the Massachusetts law enforcement agencies uncovered abuse of the state’s criminal records system. It seems law enforcement personnel have improperly and illegally searched for information on “high profile” citizens for reasons other than official business (i.e. curiosity, ill intent, etc.)

Some of the things searched for were driver’s license numbers and photos, home addresses, car ownership, social security numbers, gun purchases, etc.

The US Government is putting more and more information together about its citizens – much of it without the citizens’ knowledge. We’re supposed to feel comfortable about that?

How will Obama’s proposed National Medical Records Database be abused and used against its citizens? Add that to the GPS coordinates being taken on every household in America, Google’s Street View, and proposed Internet control and surveillance

Big Brother won’t just be watching you. He’ll be writing a biography.

Guess who won’t get the royalties.

Why Pray?

The imposter in the White House will not be publicly praying on behalf of our country on our National Day of Prayer this Thursday.

I’m not surprised and I’m not sure why anyone else would be. He just recently told a group of Muslims that we as a country no longer consider ourselves a Christian nation. He supports not only the murder of the unborn, but the murder of the just-born. He doesn’t see a problem with men marrying each other, or women marrying each other, and he comes from a church that taught a perverted form of Christianity for over twenty years.

Who would he pray to? He has himself – that’s all, apparently, he thinks he needs. His spokesman said he prayed privately each day. I wonder if he uses a mirror.

It should also not come as a surprise to anyone when God lifts His hand of protection on this country for the final time and we reap what we’ve allowed to be sown.

The Bible says “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12

I would guess that the opposite of that would be “Cursed is the nation whose God is the President; and the people whom He hath chosen for His judgment.”
