Why? Hell? Really?


The Leftist media acts as the megaphone for any and all who consider Christianity ‘harmful’. They use terms like intolerant, hate-filled, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, you name the pejorative and its been used as a club to defame and berate us.

But Why?

Christ died for the sins of all mankind! He healed the oppressors(Roman’s and the Sanhedrin’s) families. He ate with tax collectors and prostitutes. He asked only one thing of us: believe in Him. Believe Who He is and love Him. He told us how to prove our love: that we love each other as He has loved us.

The ‘free-will’ branch of Christianity has, for millennia, beat people over the head with a bible demanding that they either believe or they will burn in Hell for all eternity. Walk the aisle. Say the prayer. Get Saved! Or Else! If you burn its your own fault! God is Good!

The ‘predestination’ branch has, for centuries, said God chose from before the foundation of the world, nothing you do can change it so if you burn, God foreordained it to be and He is absolutely Sovereign. All things work together for good to those who love Him. For those who don’t? Oh, Well! God is Good!

The Christian religion is replete with all the trappings of, well, religion! Religion, any and all religions, demand like-mindedness, or else. That works out optically as intolerance. The world sees Christianity as intolerant of all who fail to believe as they do because Jesus said He alone was the Way, the Truth, and the Life and no one comes to the Father, but by Him. That’s pretty one way!

But proof of Christ in us is sacrificial, not religious. Love your enemies. Be kind to those who despite-fully use you. If your enemy needs water, give them to drink. If they come to your door hungry and naked, don’t just say peace be unto you and send them on their way!

I said all that to say this: Haters hate. That’s who they are and that’s what they do. Will giving a hater drink when they are thirsty or food and clothing when they are hungry and naked make them hate less? No! Hate is out of the overflow of the heart. Gratitude may detour or redirect hatefulness but can never remove it. This applies to religion especially! We can be so grateful to Christ for saving us, say we love Him forever and always, and do little or nothing to prove that is so! Religion is not truth. Relationship with Christ is truth.

God gave the law so we would be able to define the difference between love and hate. Jesus let us know that there is no God-given law against charity. He also let us know the condition of and what flows from the unregenerate heart of man in Jeremiah 17:9 and Mark 7:21-23 among others.

God instituted governments among man so we could deal justly with those who hate. We do not need ‘hate crime’ laws. Crime is the product of hate so if we have a law against murder, murder is murder, the unlawful taking of human life. It does not matter if there is a difference in race, creed, color, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Murder is a product of hating your fellow man. So is theft, gossip, lying, whatever act immorally seeks to harm another. All moral crime is the product of a hate-filled heart. A statutorily defined ‘hate crime’ is a redundancy written large!

Haters want everyone to hate just like they do. They divide. Instead of wanting to believe the reason Christians say Christ is the only way because they love their fellow man and want the best for them eternally, they hate us for our ‘intolerance’ and our failure to reject eternal good for the pleasure of temporary licentiousness. That is how evil prospers–temporarily!

Will haters go to Hell? God says they will. Will those who claimed to cast out demons and do many good works in Jesus’ name be blessed? Jesus said get thee from me ye workers of iniquity, I NEVER KNEW YOU!

Doing something that counts for an-other’s ETERNAL good is not intolerant. Sharing God’s Truth in love and kindness is not intolerant.

But:

Haters PERCEIVE all that disagrees with them as hateful intolerance because that is how psychological projection works. And isn’t perception about 90% of man’s reality; seeing the motives of others through the lens of self instead of the seeing what others do in the light of objective truth.

IS saying Jesus loves you intolerant? Only if your perceptual lens is hate.

Being Played

Talk about being played? They’re(leftist power structure, globalists, MSM fellow travelers, anarchists of all theologies, stripes, and initials, etc., etc.) trying to mail in the vote, defund and disband the police, sit back and watch the most violent anarchists among them, burn, loot and pillage our nation and disavow our history. Then when Trump wants to set an example of reducing or eliminating the inordinate, media-driven fear of the umteenth down on the list of most hazardous health threats in the world by holding rallies, the haters drive hopeful people away with terroristic threats of protest and violence in the streets, personal intimidation, ridicule, shilling for seats to the venue they never intend to fill so the optics favor their narrative, and just generally stirring hate and discontent in any and every way they can.

I would say ‘there ought to be a law!’ but there already are and more than a god’s plenty of them that the libtards in charge refuse to enforce! The only recourse for the hopeful is to suck it up, stop being hopeful and start demanding the return of our God-given rights; refuse to be intimidated. Get involved in recalling the feckless, knee-bending, lumps who are openly and vehemently disdaining their oaths of office. Quit supporting and giving accepting attention to the spoiled, ignorant and lying celebrities who have never truly sacrificed for anyone other than themselves, burning our flag, and pissing on our heritage by kneeling for the anthem and shooting off their mouths about things they know NOTHING about!

Get our country back on track!
Recognize we are being played! Refuse to go along! Americans are a FREE people who appreciate LAW AND ORDER and we better start acting like it or the tyrants and anarchists will get their wish: the destruction of the only nation on earth founded on the promise of Christian Freedom! No matter where they were born, tyrants and anarchist are NOT American at heart, they are UN-American, criminal, spoiled, ignorant, treasonous, backstabbing, divisive, haters. Their goal is the destruction of everything the Founders fought to create and millions since have fought and died to preserve. No the nation is not perfect because the people in it are not perfect — never was. BUT, there is no middle ground here. Which side are you on? The side that wants it to be better with law and order? Or the side that wants it destroyed, ruined and chaotic.

We must quit believing that being an American is an accident of birth! Being an American citizen in 2020 requires of us that we have a heart for the blessings of freedom and respect for life and liberty. The anarchists and dividers among us are haters of the first stripe and need to be held to account by the lovers of what this nation was founded to be! Those born within our borders are responsible to the rest of us as well as the world to preserve and continue to shine as a beacon of freedom. Those with other allegiance have the rest of the world to choose from. But they will not go there. Do you wonder why?

A Sacred Trust

Would you really like to see the influence of money taken out of the political process? Think about this:

“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”
― Abraham Lincoln

“Politics: the art of using euphemisms, lies, emotionalism and fear-mongering to dupe average people into accepting–or even demanding–their own enslavement.”
― Larken Rose

“When enough people understand reality, tyrants can literally be ignored out of existence. They can’t ever be voted out of existence.”
― Larken Rose

Those we elect to office, supposedly to represent our interests, and do not, we should learn from. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me! Term limits? We have them: two years for Congressmen and six years for Senators. I suggest we put them to better use!!! Elections have long-term consequences.

Is It Time?

Been sitting around for weeks now watching, trying to keep up on the COVID news and find some way to decide just how dangerous this disease is. After a while it has become obvious that some of what the nation has done has been warranted.

But lately it has come to the point where I have to decide if I am an American or a robot that has been programmed to do what the “authority figures” tell me is good for me.

Which then, given that there is little else to do but contemplate the big questions of life, I felt it necessary to consider just what it means to be an American. Which then led me to consider how we got here painted in broad strokes.

  1. The pilgrims fled England for religious freedom.
  2. The colonists fought the Revolution to prove they had inalienable, God-given human rights.
  3. The continent was conquered by those willing to risk their lives to make their own mark.
  4. A civil war was fought to prove the Constitution applied to all citizens of whatever color.
  5. Our success as a nation brought us entanglements that meant our involvement in world wars.
  6. That success went to our heads and led us to try to evangelize the world in ‘Americanism’.
  7. ‘The Ugly American’ became a world view on 6 continents.
  8. Globalism is the world view that the whole world can have what we have if they bring us down just a notch or 10.
  9. Globalists are using every tactic they can to make that happen; both foreign and domestic.
  10. That IS BOTH foreign AND domestic.

Which then, brought me to try to decide if I needed a tin foil hat or if what I was coming to consider truth was not just a conspiracy theory.

Question: Is the reaction to this ‘pandemic’ a carefully executed test of the resolve of the American people to stand against elected officials who are ignoring the Constitution?

I mean if the globalists and petty dictators find that we are willing to put up with any overreach for the sake of perceived temporary security, won’t they continue to push the limits even further in shredding the Constitution if people are unwilling to even speak up in its defense?

Of the people, by the people, and for the people means that ultimately We the People must stand in its defense or those who thrive on abuse of power will ignore it, as has been proven is several jurisdictions just recently. It is time to demand their adherence to the Constitution. Either we stand up for and use The Bill of Rights, or we will lose it!

So, is it time?

Christian On the Fence About Trump?

Consider Samson: The story of Samson is one of contradiction. God raised up Samson as a judge of Israel, but what kind of man was he? Endued with supernatural strength, but arrogant, self-willed, disrespectful to parents, a womanizer, but God used him to break the yoke of the Philistines. Samson allowed his lustful love for Delilah to be his downfall and yet in the end broke the power of the Philistines in a final act of revenge.

What has this to do with many Christians’ anti-Trump attitude? Well, God wanted Israel to return to him and raised up a man of great strength and cunning but who was a brash, arrogant, irreverent, womanizer. Not the pious, reverent, ever-forgiving, priestly type we think of as the person God uses to bring his people back into His bosom, the great statesman type able to overpower with rhetoric and reason and grace.

Does God want America to be the shining city on the hill of the world? The history of this nation, its founding, its growth, its rise to power, its effect on the standard of living of the entire world, the hate we have drawn over our concept of freedom, and our ofttimes lack of responsibility in sharing the blessings of that freedom shows a remarkable parallel to the history of Israel.

On June 28, 1787, in a plea to the delegates of a deadlocked Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin said, “The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: ‘that God governs in the affairs of men.’ And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?” I would add here that history proves beyond any doubt that no nation or empire can continue to stand without His aid.

God governs in the affairs of men. Donald Trump, this brash, often intemperate man with a less than stellar ‘Christian’ history has kept every campaign promise he has been able to keep. Our borders are being protected, everyone who wants a job can find one, the economy, trade, federal regulation, are all moving toward MAGA, Making America Great Again.

American History is not without stain! Many times our freedoms have been abused by those who have risen to power. Bigotry and racism are human weaknesses which are among the principalities and powers Christians are called to overcome, first within ourselves, then, as we are given voice and ability, within the world around us, our family, our circle of friends, our community and in the end our nation. There are those among us who would have us believe that the stains in our history define us. We cannot allow those people to have or maintain power! They are anathema to the American dream. I believe that it is overcoming those stains on America that define us.

If I was alone in this belief I could be dismissed out of hand. But I am not alone in it. Those who come to America seeking citizenship, take the classes, learn the language, yearn to take up freedom and the responsibility that goes along with it, those born here of American citizen parents and value freedom and the responsibility that goes along with it can Make America Great Again. But we must assume the responsibility to be informed voters who look to the preservation of our nation and not fall for for the short-sighted, destructive promises of those who would buy your vote.

Mr. Trump, for all his so-called failings and un-Christian history, has shown that he truly wants to bring back the America of the American dream. Is he perfect? Far from it! Was Samson? Not Hardly!! But God governs in the affairs of men. Perhaps we should not reject one who is doing his best to work for us, in search of some flawed, utopian ideal of perfect. If we do, I fear we will get exactly what we deserve. The idea of voting for the ‘lesser of two evils’ is a false paradigm! We are all sinners and therefore equal in the eyes of God.

Thank God He uses imperfect men to forward His perfect will! By their fruits you shall know them! Question: What are the fruits of the office of the President of the United States of America under Donald J. Trump. His whole life is not on trial. How he wields the awesome power of the office he holds is.

How to Renew the Republic

“[If a] people [are] so demoralized and depraved as to be incapable of exercising a wholesome control, their reformation must be taken up ab incunabulis (from infancy). Their minds [must] be informed by education what is right and what wrong, [must] be encouraged in habits of virtue and deterred from those of vice by the dread of punishments, proportioned indeed, but irremissible. In all cases, [they must] follow truth as the only safe guide and eschew error which bewilders us in one false consequence after another in endless succession. These are the inculcations necessary to render the people a sure basis for the structure of order and good government.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1819. ME 15:234

In for a Penny?

For those who missed the headline that SC Senate approved a bill banning all abortions: You know the Founders declared life to be an unalienable right endowed by our Creator; not only unalienable, but self-evident. They assumed that anyone with a brain could see and accept that as undeniable truth! The South Carolina senate just stripped the Founding statement of life as an inalienable right and made it subject to the whims of lawmakers. Its great that they approved a bill to ban all abortions, but don’t we already have law on the books concerning first degree, premeditated murder? Just what part of killing a full-term, living human being fails to qualify as first degree murder in the states that already allow it? What part of murdering any innocent human being for being inconvenient fails to qualify? Am I the only one who has looked at all the facts, used my God given reason and logic, and come to the inescapable conclusion that abortion is murder? Despite all the phony, self-serving arguments to the contrary, no matter what, bottom line, its murder. God forgive me for taking so long to say it.

Those Who Govern Best…

Mrs. Gillibrand is running for POTUS. She wants to do away with the Electoral College. She is anti-gun. She is pro tax-the-rich. All of which together make her part and parcel of the Democrat party’s elite way of thinking and expresses just what would happen to those of us who disagree because we know something of history.
History holds no example of government of any nation that has succeeded in protecting the rights of the individual after the individual has given up the right to defend themselves against governmental excess.

People seem to think the term ‘free state’ as used in the second amendment means the governmental entity that was set up to preserve freedom! NO! That is not what the framers were saying. What that meant was the state of individual freedom in which a person could keep or dispose of the fruits of their labor as they saw fit; the state of individual freedom that made it possible for a person to live or die in want or in plenty by the choices they made. Being that free in no way relieves us of the responsibility we have to our fellow man. In fact it makes us more responsible to share our blessings with the less fortunate.

When free men choose to raise up a government to take over those responsibilities, it follows as night follows day, that our freedom becomes forfeit, all at once or dribbling away over decades.

Americans may have largely forgotten that fact because they have forgotten history. We are no longer instilled with the truth by parents or teachers, that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, and suffer all the pain that forgetting so great a truth entails.  God have mercy on us if we who remember history fail to pass on truth to the next generation for it is they who will live in what we pass on, be it success or failure moving back toward true freedom or further into servitude and eventually outright slavery .
