Since the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, I’m hearing and reading a lot of people asking why this happened, what could have prevented it, do we need more gun control , why did God allow this to happen, why do bad things happen to good people. I’m reminded of what the Bible says. God gave dominion over the Earth to MAN and gave MAN free will. God didn’t allow this, MAN did.
God is just as grieved over this as we are. It breaks His heart to see His creation suffering so much. He doesn’t force His will on mankind, but offers the solution. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM, SHALL NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. God sent His son to teach us the right way to live, and to die for our sins and MAKE US EACH A NEW CREATURE LIKE HIM.
The people who don’t accept this solution far outnumber those who do. They affect the world we all live in. Strait is the gate and narrow is THE WAY and FEW there be who find it. The solution: Be one of the few and help others find the strait WAY.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
First, Obama has to convince everyone in America that the greatest health care in the world is a “mess.” It is NOT.
Then he has to convince everyone in America that someone else, namely his opponents, made that mess. There is NO mess to be responsible for.
Then he has to scare enough Americans into begging the government to take care of them, as only HE can do it.
The problem Obama is encountering is that most Americans are taking care of themselves and do NOT want the government to get in their personal business.
Obama wants his opponents to get out of his way and shut up.
Americans want the government to get out of our way and Obama to shut up.
This president has shown in six agonizing months that he has little regard for the First Amendment/FREE SPEECH, including political speech, the Second Amendment/Gun Ownership Rights, The Fourth Amendment/Search and Seizure Protections, has side-stepped the oversight of Congress on Cabinet appointees by hiring czars who report only to him, and has tried to bypass the people’s will by forcing their elected officials to vote on bills they haven’t read, in such a short time as to prohibit our representatives from learning what is contained in the bills they vote on. All-in-all, a flagrant disregard of the United States Constitution.
This can not be out of ignorance, as the president has boasted many times that he taught Constitutional law at Columbia University. He simply prefers a dictatorship, or so it seems. This whole “We the People” thing is getting in his way, making it harder to construct his version of Otopia in America.
We the People will not stand for it. We will stand for our system of self-government and self-reliance, keeping our freedom which we hold more dear than any “topias”.
Any person who does not care to abide by the Constitution of the United States is living in the wrong country, for this document will stand as long as Americans have breath in their bodies. Obama is nothing more than a blip in American history. The day will come when he is gone from the scene and we will all have to live with the messes he created. The smartest action to take is to nip it in the bud right now. Limit the amount of damage this one man can do in four years. Stand and fight just as tenaciously as any military soldier would in a field of fierce battle. This is our plight. This is our fight.
Be vigilant. Be wise. Be strong. Be free.
(The only new American Revolution will be Americans revolting against this administration’s efforts to force socialism or worse on us.)Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
People who have not read the Bible should not pass judgement on others. This newswoman questions the auto dealer’s inclusion of God in his motto, “Guns, God and American Pick-up Trucks”. He tries to explain it to her to no avail. She asks “What Would Jesus Do?” I wish the dealer had remembererd that Jesus used a whip on the crooks operating in the Temple in Jerusalem. YES, IN THE TEMPLE!
St. Matthew 21:11-13
“And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves. And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”
St. John 2:13-16
“And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.”
People who try to use God to oppose war have never read the Old Testament passages, of which there are many, where God sent the Israelites to attack, and yes, kill, other cities. God hates evil, wherever it shows up. He is merciful and works to bring evil-doers to their senses and to repentance, but He does say that he will not strive with man forever.
Genesis 6:3 “And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man…”
At that point, it can get quite scary! Let’s not forget the flood of Noah’s day that wiped all but eight people off the planet in God’s move to cleanse the planet of evil and start over.
We all need to do our homework and search for truth. Don’t be swayed by the news media, believing that they know what they’re talking about or that they are correct. Don’t form your moral values by giving in to pressure from the media. Anti-gun sentiments run rampant in the news media and in Hollywood, but many of them have not done their homework on this subject. It’s political correctness that can be harmful to you and your family without a valid basis.
Can you imagine how today’s news media would have reported on Jesus walking into church in a major city, making a whip of sorts and throwing out the crooks, turning over their tables, dumping out their money and yelling at them to get out? The CNN crowd would burst blood vessels in their necks. They would be incensed at such behavior.
But the difference lies in priorities. Jesus did what he had to do to impress on the people the need for holiness, righteousness, morality, honesty and respect for God’s institution. A corrupt temple was no good to the people, nor to God. His goal was to protect the people from evil.
God does not want his people to be sitting ducks for evil-doers just for the sake of “not owning a gun”. What virtue is there in not owning a gun? The very people who demand that Americans be virtuously free of guns, use the most foul language and go very nearly nude in public (bikinis, plunging necklines, short-short skirts, see through blouses, etc.). They want to choose which virtues Americans must adhere to, while excluding those virtues that they do NOT want to live with, such as decency.
You can’t take away their First Amendment Right of free speech, no matter how nasty or hateful they talk, but you should take away everyone’s Second Amendment Right to own a gun for self-defense and defense of one’s home and family. These people would quickly change their positon if ever assailed by a criminal with a gun pointed in their face! Let’s pray it never happens to them.
Stand up for the Second Amendment. As the economy goes down, crime goes up. You are becoming more and more vulnerable with each day of the Obamanation.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
