“Racism – 101”…Blog.


“Racism – 101”…Blog.

Each one of you… are “Racist!” Say it isn’t so? Why then… is there so very much… ‘Hair Coloring’… sold? You are not happy with the ‘Racist’ color of your hair… so you change it! …LOL! Perhaps I could go on from here and show how very ‘Racist’… we all are! You see this term is often used by those not understanding this subject, without any… “Cognitive Skills.”

Here is a… video from YouTube. Suppose I call you a ‘Racist’… if you did not like… “this group?” What then would you think about me? Would you call me… “A Racist” or “A Bigot?” Please see this video and tell me what You think? …LOL!


This morning I… went to YouTube for a song for one of my Blog sites. I read about the term… ‘Racist’… thrown about in a ‘disparaging way’. Why would someone call another a ‘Racist?’ It is because… ‘MOST’… have not though this issue through… ‘Thoroughly!’
During the past election… I was plummeted with false, ‘Racist’ accusations for posting the Obama YouTube videos about what he said. I simply revealed the agenda of the candidate as by his own words. “How or Why”… then could I be called a racist? “The Truth”… will only affect those that have… ‘Lies as their Agenda!’


How can one… call another a ‘Racist’ without knowing what race they are? I was repeatedly called a ‘Racist’, by someone… not knowing my race. Since I have not identified my race, and President Obama is… “Half Black & Half White”… what kind of racist am I…? Am I a ‘Black Racist’ or a ‘White Racist?’ …LOL!

See how silly… this term ‘Racist’ becomes. It is use by those claiming… ‘Political Correctness!’ But whose ‘PC’, their or yours? We all like someone because of their Race and Racial Characteristics. Say it isn’t so? I liked President Bush and the Republicans agenda. I disliked President Obama and the Democratic Agenda. Does that make me a ‘Racist?’ Absolutely NOT!

Some like them… Tall, some Short! Some like Blonds, Brunettes and some Red Heads. Some Heavy and some Skinny. Some Caucasian, some Negro, some Indian and some Asian or some Mixed. All these are Characteristics of… “Race!” Many pretend to identify with a particular group. I am just plain white toast! …LOL!

How about “Real Racism”…? Do you have any idea what I am alluring to? Why do so many hate the Jews? They are one of the smallest minority groups and yet most of the world is fighting over Jerusalem. That is ‘Racism’ at its fullest. But there is a ‘Spiritual Reason’… behind the Racism towards the Jew!

"Christ Jesus" is… 'A Jew'! Most peoples… “Do Not”… want to Him to be Savior in their Lives! How about You? He puts it on the line… in His Word… The Bible! There is No Compromise with His Word… as it is Absolute. Most hate Him… because… they Love their “Sin / Sins”.

· (John 3:18-19-20) He = who believes on Him = is not condemned, = but he = who does not believe = = is condemned already, = because = he has not believed = in the Name = of the only-begotten = Son of God.
· (John 3:19) And this is the condemnation, = that the Light = has come into the world, = and men = loved darkness = rather than the Light, = = because their deeds were evil.
· (John 3:20) For everyone = who does evil = hates the Light, = and does not come to the Light, = lest his deeds should be exposed.

“Plain & Simple” Racism…! What else would you call it? Christ Jesus paid the penalty for your ‘Sin / Sins’… by dying and raising Himself again from the dead. He has offered you… “Eternal Life”… and you have… “Rejected It”. Say it isn’t so? What kind of person would I be, having Eternal Life and not telling you about it…?

Perhaps today only… is the rest of your life. You and I are not assured about a tomorrow. Death will take us, some young and some old. But it will come and there will be… “No Second Chance!” You either decide to… “Trust Christ:… or… “Not to Trust Christ!” There is No Middle Ground or Neutrality.

· (Isaiah 53:5-6) But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on Him; and with His stripes we ourselves are healed.
· (Isa 53:6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, each one to his own way; and Jehovah has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.


· (John 10:9-10-11) I [Jesus] am the gate. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture.
· (John 10:10) The thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
· (John 10:11) "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.

What more can I say…?


…“Not to Decide… Is to Decide!”

“Christian Idolatry – 101”…Blog.


“Christian Idolatry – 101”…Blog.


Are their Idols… used by those that practice ‘Christianity’? WOW! How could I address such a subject when many of my friends are Christians? “Simply and Truthfully”… as there is No Other Way to address any… “Issue of Life”. Perhaps if nothing else… this will get you to… “Evaluate what and why you believe… what you do with that… Belief?”

· (Deuteronomy 5:7-8) You = shall have = no other gods besides = Me.
· (Deut 5:8) You shall not make a graven image for you, any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or in the earth beneath, or in the waters beneath the earth.

Now here is… where I begin to address, what is called an Idol. It could be many things and yes, even “Ideas of Concepts”. Most who hold advanced degrees from the learning institutions of this country, are to themselves… ‘gods!’ [Small-g]. Their ‘learning and intellect’, has given them a false sense of… “Self Worth & Importance.” Just like the Degrees and ‘PhD’s’… you may purchase on the Internet! …LOL!

· (Romans 1:21-22-23) Because, = knowing God, = they did not = glorify Him as God, = neither were thankful. = But they became = vain in their imaginations, = and their foolish heart = was darkened.
· (Rom 1:22) Professing to be wise, = = they became fools
· (Rom 1:23) and changed = the glory of the incorruptible God = into an image made like corruptible man, = and birds, = and four-footed animals, = and creeping things.

So it is… that mankind has replaced… the “Knowledge of God”… with human wisdom. Oh what a mess, it has gotten our Country into. What a mess, we have made of our Society with the permissive sexuality and ‘no bars hold’… liberal attitude to ‘each and every’ aspect of Society! This Social Engineering has moved us as a nation into the… “Stupid Is As… Stupid Does”!

There is No Right or Wrong any more… just legal and man-made standards, which seem to change with the ‘Wind and the Weather’. Crimes such as murder are simply punished with a prison term and rape has been changed to sexual battery. Many who should be incarcerated for life do short terms and are then ‘counseled and put on probation’. Only to… commit the same crime… Again!

(Isaiah 29:13) And Jehovah said, Because this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips honor Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the command of men;


What was a crime… ‘Only 35-years ago’… has been lessened to… “Bad Social Behavior”… with no criminal stigma or punishment for doing such. It has touched the very… fabric of society. Chewing Gum was a… “No/No” in schools… and now a typical student has… “Sex”… in the rest room… and is only counseled or temporally suspended.

I though you… were going to speak about Christian Idolatry? First I had to paint a ‘word picture’ of the… “Ever Changing Moral Base’… a constantly changing society… by a “Supposed Intelligent Leadership”. Their minds are simply justifying their actions and adjusting… life styles, accordingly to adapt… as the chameleon.

· (John 17:17) Sanctify them = through = Your truth. Your Word = is Truth.

· (Matthew 24:35) The heaven and the earth = shall pass away, = but = My Words = shall not = pass away.

· (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If they = do not speak = according to = this Word, = = it is because = no light = is in them.

· (Philippians 2:5) For = let = this mind = be in you which = was also in = Christ Jesus,

Wow…! What exactly are these verses saying? Simply put… we as Christians… are to take Only the Word of God… for our Reference. The Word of God… is ALL that we need to… “Validate Truth!” Anything that does not… “Agree Totally with the Word of God”… is Not Truth… But Simply… “Error and Lies”.

That is kind of… Bigoted you may say. Well, God says it is His Truth and no “Other Standard” can be rightfully called… “Truth!” Besides, you already agree with God is some Areas, Don’t You? How about if you car… gets stolen? Or you bank account… shorted? Or you mate cheats on You? All these are addressed in the simple… “10-Commandments of God.” Only when they affect you… Personally… do they then become your standard. Say it isn’t so?

Now to the issue… of ‘Christian Idolatry’. How about… “Music”? Each Song… is simply a Sermon. Say it isn’t so? The tune may be favorable, but what about the Words? Do they match Scriptural Principles? Those Songs about GOD… Do they “Accurately Portray”… “God’s Truth”? Nothing Less… should be used… to describe… The God of the Bible!

· (James 5:12) But before = all things, = my brothers, do not swear; neither by the heaven nor by the earth, nor any other oath. = But let your yes = be yes, = and your no, = no, = lest you fall into condemnation.

If this Issue… affects you personally, it may be called… ‘Idolatry?’ Once again… “Every Song is a Sermon!” Every “Christian Song”… Must… accurately portray… “God and His Truth”! …“Nothing More, Nothing Less”! Say it isn’t so…? Please say those Words… ‘Out Loud’… so that you… may hear out loud… what they sound Like.

· (Matthew 22:37) Jesus = said to him, = You shall love the Lord your God = = with all your heart, = = and with all your soul, = = and with = all = your mind.

Have you put… your ‘Christian Music’… before “The God”… Who you call… ‘Savior and Lord’? Is your Standard for ‘Christian Music’… the Same as… “The God of the Bible”? Are you caught up in the music without… completely examining the… ‘Words’, their Implications and their Meanings? Most “C” music today is Limp and Meaningless! Repeating words over and over. Him is often Substituted for LORD!

· (Matthew 12:36) But I say unto you, = That every = idle word = that men shall speak, = they shall give account = thereof = in the day of judgment.

Well society has… changed and so has the music… we sing for God. Is that Truth or just an excuse? Has our or any society… changed for the Good… or… for the Worse? Please show me what Nation… has changed to reflect… “God’s Standard” and His Word… in their Laws and Justice? You cannot, because there are… None! Not even Israel! Each Nation is getting worse… Not Better!

· (Philippians 2:5) For = let = this mind = be in you which = was also in = Christ Jesus,

Are your… ‘Christian Songs’… “Meeting the Standard of Scripture”… OR… are they to a lower standard… to speak about… “The God of Glory”? Remember… “Every Song is A Sermon”! ‘Nothing More’, ‘Nothing Less’.

Well, you know… I enjoy them so very much, as I enjoy music. Well, my question has not changed. But is that music and song… “Accurately Portraying… the Majesty of the God of Glory… just as… The Scriptures Do”?

· (Leviticus 10:1-2) And Nadab and Abihu, = the sons of Aaron, = each took his censer = and put fire in it, = and put incense on it, = and offered strange fire = before Jehovah, = which He had = not commanded them.
· (Lev 10:2) And there went out = fire from Jehovah = and devoured them, = and they died = before Jehovah.

Awe, come on now… Can’t I just use… “Any Music and Words”… ‘To Worship God’? Aaron had four sons. Two of them died… for just using… that Same Idea. “Isn’t Any worship is just worship to God”? Sorry No! Just like any music… ‘Called’ Christian… “May not, in Fact… Be So!”

There is the Master Principle… that Jesus simply quoted in… “Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4”. “Man does not live by bread alone… but by… Every Word of God! For the Born Again Christian, there is only One Standard. The Word of God, Nothing More, Nothing Less. How about You?

Does your Christian Music… Accurately portray the Truth of the Word of God? Or is it socially acceptable in your Church? You cannot have it… ‘Both Ways!’ Just read again those verses above. Aaron’s two other sons… learned a valuable lesson… from their ‘dead’ older brothers. And so did all… “The Nation Israel”. Why are those verses in there… for US Today?

· (Romans 15:4-5) For whatever things = were written before = were written = for our learning, = so that = we through = patience and comfort = of = the Scriptures = might have hope.
· (Rom 15:5) And may = the God of patience and consolation = grant you = to be like minded = toward one another = according to = Christ Jesus,

The Word of God… is the Only Point of Reference for those that call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus. Say it isn’t So? If you do… then perhaps you really do not know the God of the Bible. His Word… and… His Mind… are to be that part of us… where His Holy Spirit of God… makes His dwelling place in us. You cannot serve…. “God”… and… ‘Serve Yourself’… for that is merely… “Idolatry”!

· (Hebrews 10:15-16-17) The Holy Spirit = also is = a witness to us; = for after He had said before,
· (Heb 10:16) "This is the covenant = that I will make with them = after those days, = says the Lord; = = I will put My Laws = = into their hearts, = = and in their minds = = I will write them,"
· (Heb 10:17) also He adds, = "their sins and their iniquities = I will remember = no more."

His Words… will He put into our Minds and into our Hearts! How can He do that… IF we do not… ‘Read & Study’… “His Word?” …. Will He… magically place them there? Absolutely Not! There is No magic with the Word of God. You do… believe the… Word of God?

· (John 6:63) It is the Spirit = that makes alive, = the flesh profits nothing. = The Words = that I [Jesus] speak to you = are Spirit = and are life.

How about then…. Turning off your ‘Christian Music’… and spend instead the time… In the “Word of God”? What will feed your soul with… Truth and Life? John 6:63 says it is… The Word! If you cannot do that… then I would simply propose to you… that you have taken your Christian Music… and made it… “Idolatry”? Say it isn’t So? Perhaps you need to see these verses?

· (2Corinthians 10:3-to-6) For though walking about in flesh, = we do not war =according to flesh.
· (2Cor 10:4) For = the weapons = of our warfare = are not fleshly, = but mighty = through God = to the pulling down of strongholds,
· (2Cor 10:5) pulling down = imaginations = and every high thing = that exalts itself = = against the knowledge of God, = = and bringing into captivity = = every thought = = into the obedience = = of Christ;
· (2Cor 10:6) and having readiness = = to avenge all disobedience, = when your obedience = is fulfilled.

Please tell me… about your… Christian Music? …“Every Song is a Sermon”…! Are the words of that song… completely obedient to the Word of God? Or… do they tell a different message… than the Word of God… Tells? If it doesn’t… Then It Is… “Idolatry!”

Simply compare… the Songbook of the Bible, “The Psalms!”… that Israel used Psalms as their Song Book! Simply compare the… “Doctrine”… displayed in the Psalms, with Contemporary Christian music. Today’s ‘C’ music is… “Missing Doctrine”…! It is a… ‘Feels good about HIM [GOD]’… without ever speaking about Judgment as the Psalms Do. Idolatry of MOST of that “C” music has taken the place of… “The Psalms!”

“Diminishing Returns – 101”…Blog.


“Diminishing Returns – 101”…Blog.

What is that you say…? What does that mean? Perhaps another way to say that is for you to count the number of ‘Tags” you make on a community board, and compare that to the number… you receive back. I can remember visiting many people in one day on Yahoo, and having quite a few tag me back. Now, fewer and fewer people seem to be on line. This is… ‘The law of diminishing returns’.

We all have… busy lives and many things desiring our attention. Most have mates and families who constantly need ‘validation’ and ‘emotional feedback’. A large part of our time is spent helping others. So too, work has too and is demanding more, each month. One of my last positions was in a plant that was closing. Lay off after lay off, I ended up doing the job of 5-others. That is the price we pay… for that pay check.

The daily news… was on when my coffee maker was finishing up. Someone had won the “220 Million dollar – Power ball”. I was thinking that, this person has had placed more in their lap, then they are able to deal with. I remembered seeing a program on the History channel, where they profiled the tragedies that followed the lives of most winners. The law of diminishing returns.

A Billionaire once said… take all the money there is and divide it up among everyone and in as little as 5-years, the rich will be rich again and the poor will be poor again. Sounds reasonable to me. Unless you have had specific training in handling Millions, you will experience… ‘The law of Diminishing Returns’.

I often think… of Imelda Marcos. She was the wife of her husband Ferdinand Marcos who was the dictator of the Philippines. She had over… “2700 pairs of shoes”… at one time. How many were enough? Just a few more pairs! The law of diminishing returns.


One Simple Rule… “What you own… Owns You!” Whatever… ‘Rightly and honestly’ brought you pleasure, will continue to do so! Whatever… ‘Wrongly and dishonestly’ brought you pleasure will diminish to… no pleasure at all, “just bondage”. Again, the law of diminishing returns.

Remember when… you could watch TV without seeing all the Sex? No, I am not a prude, but I certainly do not need about what another is doing in their sex life on TV. It seems that no one can sell any product unless Sex is ‘attached or implied’. Really, do you enjoy seeing all that needless Sexuality in product marketing, or is it just me…? Again, the law of diminishing returns.

How about your… weekends? Are you really looking forward to them, or are they all running together? Sometimes I will get into my car and go for a drive, somewhere. I enjoy travel and just take a ride out of town. It used to be that any trip would be enjoyable, but with all the traffic and high prices of Petrol, it is not enjoying anymore. Again, the law of diminishing returns.

Now to your computer. The newer programs are getting so much faster to keep up with the latest generation of 2X-processores with ‘64Bit’ operating systems. Some of my older programs will not run on my newer compute, which is only a year old. I have to run them on my upgraded older [7-year old] computer. That is… the law of diminishing returns.

Your Mental Acuity… ‘Will’ be the next thing… “To Go!” It may be called, Dementia or Alzheimer’s. I really prefer to call it… “AA-ADD!” That is… Age Adjusted Attention Deficient Disorder. Some may choose to simply call it a… ‘Senior Moment!’ AA-ADD sounds so very much more Sophisticated! …LOL! Again, the law of diminishing returns.

Have you heard… “Use It or Lose It?” I find that so true with my… Brain Functions. Oh how easy it is to plop down in front of the… ‘Boob Tube [TV]’… and call it relaxation. It is like shutting off your Brain… and allowing them to pour in the ‘Garbage!’ Try challenging yourself to learn something new! How about… ‘Calculus for Dummies?’ I recently purchased it at a garage sale and am trying to wade through it. This will counteract my brains… law of diminishing returns.

· (Matthew 16:26) For what profit = will a person have = if he gains the whole world = and = forfeits his own soul? = Or what can a person give = in exchange for his soul?

· (1John 5:11) This is the testimony: = God has given us eternal life, = and this life is found in his Son.
· (1John 5:12) The person = who has the Son = has this life. = The person = who does not have = the Son of God = = does not have this life.
· (1John 5:13) I have written = these things = to you who believe = in the name of the Son of God = so that you may know = that you have eternal life.

“Your Ear – 101”…Blog.


“Your Ear – 101”…Blog.

Why the Ear…? How come I am going to write about my ear and your ear? As I keep my hair short, you can readily see my ears. This blog is not about ears, but one’s ability… “To Hear and Comprehend”… what is spoken or shared in verbal communication. “Hearing implies Comprehension… that will bring about a desired response!” Do you want some… ‘Ice Cream?’

“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”

Do you hear… what I just said in the above paragraph? Sort of confusing when one reads it fast, but if you read it slowly it has meaning. Most of us have that innate ability to… filter out… what we have already decided… “We don’t want… To Hear!” We all do it, myself included.

At the end… of my blogs I always put… “That you for Your EAR!” …In essence I am thanking you for reading and listening to what I have to say. Sometimes I have long blogs and sometimes I have short ones. Some adults have substituted reading with other short term communication, i.e. ‘Texting’. Soon the younger generation will not be able to compose a literate sentence with proper grammar, let alone to be able to read anything over… ‘A single paragraph’!

We hear in… several different ways. Perhaps this is not a complete list but it will get the idea across. Remember we hear exactly what we choose… ‘To Hear!’ And we block what we don’t’ want to hear. Often times will write someone off, because they speak a… “Truth”… that we ‘do not’ want to Hear! Say it isn’t so?

1. What we… ‘Hear’.
2. What we think… we ‘Hear’.
3. What was really… ‘Said’.
4. What we… ‘Heard’.
5. What we think… we ‘Heard’.

Take a few…
minutes and examine what you ‘heard’ last. Either verbal or written, did it take root in your ‘thinking’ or was it just ‘more clutter’? I hate watching TV when they advertize every 6-to-8 minutes. An hour long program has 20 minutes of advertizing. I simply… MUTE… the volume… Not to Hear!

When your ‘Hearing’… is directly related to a… “Pleasure Response”… you will… “Hear!” The last time I was in London, I was amazed by the number of pedestrians plugged into IPODS! Here too in the states while at the beach, many were plugged into the IPODS also. It seems to be the world cannot survive without them and Cell Phones! …LOL!



Here are two examples… of the Same Song. Did you notice the change in melody and tempo? One was geared to communicate to a generation who had… ‘A Completely Different’… “Hearing MODALITY!” They were so shaped by the music, that the words had no real meaning.

I have tried… to learn several different languages over the years. I have found that it is not a problem with my brain. It has become a problem with my… “Ear!” I have listened to American English for all my life. I then must force myself… through sheer desire and discipline… to lean to …‘Hear’… a different Language!

Human to human… communication seems to be more and more limited. Busy lives and ‘things’ have replaced that… “Speaking and Hearing”. We need to continue “Maturation… through ’Hearing’ instead of Isolation!” I know for me it is too easy to keep to myself. But I force myself to engage others and in doing so, I hope I have made one’s life… a little better by ‘Hearing them!’

Did you know… “GOD”… is continually speaking to mankind? Not so you may say, “I haven’t heard Him!” The fact that the Sun ‘Rises and Sets’… is Him speaking to mankind through His creation. He has also… revealed Himself to mankind… through His Word.

· (Genesis 1:14) And God said, = Let there be lights = in the expanse of the heavens = to divide = between the day and the night. = And let them be for signs, = and for seasons, = and for days = and years.

In addition God… continues speaking to us through His Word… ‘The Bible!’ Many choose simply not to read His Word and thus are saying, “God, I do not want to… ‘Hear’… what You have to Say!” Each of us… want to be in control of our own lives. Just imagine how much… ‘trouble and heartache’… we could save ourselves if we would only… “Hear and Obey!”

About now you… want me to “Hear” you say… ‘You are Medaling!’ Really now, I care about you or I would not take my time to have You… ‘Hear’… about God and what He has for you to ‘Hear!’ Each morning I get up and read my Bible. Often times in the any of the four gospels, Jesus speaks about… “Hearing!”

· (Matthew 13:9-to-12) Let the person who has ears = listen!"
· (Matt 13:10) Then the disciples came and said to Jesus, = "Why do you speak to people = in parables?"
· (Matt 13:11) He answered them, = "You have been given = knowledge about = the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, = but it hasn't been given to them.
· (Matt 13:12) For to anyone = who has something, = more will be given, = and = he will have more than enough. = But from the one = who doesn't have anything, = even what he has = will be taken away from him.

To the person… that is not interested in “Hearing God”… they never will. Remember ‘You’ and ‘Only You’… select what ‘You’ choose… “To Hear!” Like that foreign language one will try to learn. It is all a function of the Ear… “Hearing!”

Thank you for Your EAR! Roger //Email//

“Dangerous – 101”…Blog.


“Dangerous – 101”…Blog.


Are You Dangerous…? What could I possibly mean by asking you that question! It is to gender your thought process. “How or What”, do you consider dangerous? “IDHL”… is a term used in the Safety arena and it means… “Immediately Dangerous to Health & Life!” Take a few moments and simply come up with a mental list of… ‘Persons or things’… that are “Dangerous”.

How about… “Forest Gump?” Do you remember… “Stupid is, as Stupid Does?

Each one of us… has a mental list of what is Dangerous. So do others, who are afraid of us. My favorite Bumper Sticker reads… “I Think… therefore I am Dangerous!” Many, who do not even choose to think… will see no humor in such a sign. Thinking takes much mental effort. It is so much easier… to be a ‘Jelly Fish!’

I shop for vegetables… often times from the road side stands. Their prices are about half of the Grocery stores. But how safe is their produce? In reality all produce is routed though distribution wholesale sellers. It is bought and then sold, by each. Same produce, same supplier, but individual sellers. I always wash all produce, with ‘anti-bacterial’ dish washing soap and ‘rinse thoroughly’. Is that practice safe or dangerous… and do you wash… your Produce?

How about the… ‘Drunk Driver’? Surely ‘he or she’… is dangerous to all of us. Or the terrorists that attacked the Twin Towers in New York on… “9-11”. Or, that criminal who was apprehended for Stalking or even that… “Child Pornographer!’ How about one of those… desperate people… that jumps to commit Suicide? Are these considered Dangerous people?

Many of us… are unknowingly fed a “Diet of Lies”… through the News Media. Recently in California their school board passed a referendum based on ‘Political Correctness’ rather than ‘Reason’. Teaching 5-year olds about… ‘Same Sex Unions’… is not only Insane but “Morally Corrupt.” Parents who did not want their children taught such thing… we ‘not’ given an option as the teaching was mandatory! That is Dangerous! Very Dangerous!

How about… releasing the “Terrorist Political Detainees”… from Guantanamo, does not even make common sense. To Think… that they will ‘not repeat’ such actions, is very dangerous thinking! I would even go so far as to say… “Non-Thinking!” Is there a danger of repeat actions?

About now… some would say, that does not concern me! Since when is “the good of the whole”… Not the responsibility of… “All of Us?” We are all in this problem which will not go away without some real… “Thinking and Solutions!” To not be concerned and take some kind of action… is simply… ‘Dangerous!’ Simply write or call your congressman today!

Recently I was… on my ‘Facebook’ page. I always get invites to sign some “petition” for this or that cause. ‘Right to keep… in God we trust… on our money’. ‘The right to keep and bear arms’. ‘The right of free speech.’ ‘The right for beer for my horses!’ …LOL! [Just Joking!] When we have Laws and our ‘National Constitution and Bill of Rights’… why sign a petition? Is that dangerous or not? I always decline and explain my reasons!

How dangerous are… Lies? When our country elects a President offering… “Change”… but does not define… what kind of Change… is that dangerous or not? Notre Dame Catholic College recently awarded the president an ‘honorary degree.’ The Catholics are against Abortion, but the president supports abortion, “Is that Dangerous… or Not?” Yes, it is very dangerous.


The very next time… you hear someone speak about the… “Mother’ Right for Abortion”… simply ask yourself… “What about the Unborn Babies, Right to Live?” How can we take the rights away from an ‘unborn baby’… and allow the mother to… “Murder her unborn baby?” Is that dangerous or not?

Do you understand… that ‘IF’, we do not… “Mentally Reject such Ideas”… ‘THEN’, we then take a ‘Mental Acceptance’, of such thinking! Just like the computer concept of data input, ‘GI-GO’… “Garbage In… Garage Out!” What we allow into our thinking… “Takes Residency!” Is that dangerous… or not?

Advertizing on TV… uses this concept. I will often see the same advertisement on… two different stations… at the same time. Repeated ideas will cause… the non-thinker… to respond to their… “Mental Training from the Advertisements!” One must mentally reject those words, not to get brainwashed. Is that dangerous or not?

Me getting you… to think about… ‘Dangerous or Not’… simply uses the same Technique. And yes… “I think, therefore I am Dangerous!” So too, I want you… “To Think!” Just don’t take what they say as Truth. Now once again… “Is that Dangerous or Not?”

· (1Thessalonians 5:21) Instead, = test everything. = Hold on to what is good,

“Memorial Day – 101”…Blog.


“Memorial Day – 101”…Blog.

Today we here… in America celebrate ‘Memorial Day’ in the memory of not only all the Soldiers that served in the defense of our country… but also those who gave their Lives for the Freedoms we take so very much for granted. Most that have grown up here… have never had… the devastation of war… like those that have lived in other countries, especially Europe.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing.” = British Statesman, Edmund Burke.

As a Veteran… “I hate War!” Yes, I know that war is a necessary thing, “Sometimes!” If we did not support our Allies; we might all be speaking… “Nazi German!” So too, the spread of communism and especially “Terrorism” means that we must have some… “Limited War!” I still hate war, for what it does to… “The Innocent!


I had thought… that IF all the nations would get together and all agree that IF any nation were to start a war… They should be Totally… “INOLATED!” Does that sound drastic? Imagine if that would stop war? Take for instance. The country of ‘A’ on the continent of “XYZ” was to start war with the country of ‘B’… on the same continent.

Several Selected Nations… such as ‘C’ and ‘D’ would strike… “A”… with their Nuclear Weapons and completely destroy the country of “A”. They would no longer be in any position to start war! The ‘innocent’ and the ‘guilty’… would pay the price… for breaking World Peace! Would that stop war…? …Absolutely Not!

Not even the Horror… of ‘Nuclear war’ will not dissuade, any country from war. India and Pakistan still fight with each other; and each has nuclear weapons. It took “Two” bombs to convince the Japanese. China, North Korea and Iran have nuclear capability. Does that dissuade them from being… in a state of war? …Absolutely Not!


As I was selecting… photos to use in this blog, I looked at many. One of a fiancĂ© lying on the grave of her dead soldier. I even looked at the ‘Tomb of the Unknown Soldier’ and that of the ‘Arlington National Cemetery’. But the one I selected… is the result of war. It best shows the utter depravity of mankind and his cruelty toward another… during war. See these horrors of War!


Only when… the horrors of war are prevalent can see those… that suffer due to that war. But still… we have wars. Petty dictators and their unbridled lust for power and identity will always be around. Simply look at the ongoing wars on the… “African or Asian” Continents. They will never end their genocide in the elimination of other peoples with philosophical differences.


When can we… expect to have no more wars? When will the peoples of this earth… all get along? The human kind will not: on their own power…? ‘No Never!’ ‘Someone’… greater than mankind is the only… ‘One’… “Who” will eliminate all war… by “His Power”… Alone!

· (Micah 4:2-3) And many nations shall come and say, = Come and let us go up to = the mountain of Jehovah, = and to the house of the God of Jacob. = And He = will teach us of His ways, = and we will walk in His paths; = for the Law = shall go forth out of Zion, = and the Word of Jehovah = from Jerusalem.
· (Micah 4:3) And = He = shall judge = between many peoples, = and will decide = for strong nations = afar off; = and = they shall beat their swords into plowshares, = and their spears into pruning hooks. = Nation = shall not = lift up a sword = against nation, = And = they shall not still = learn war.

Only when… “Christ Jesus”… rules from Jerusalem… will there be… “World Peace!” No other time thought all of history has mankind been able to have peace on earth. Mankind… “Is not and never will be”… good enough to… find peace within himself… in order to live at Peace! It takes a power greater than himself. That is why ‘ALL’ mankind needs… a Savior!

· (Philippians 2:9-10-11) Therefore = God = has highly exalted Him, = and has given Him = a name = which is above every name,
· (Phil 2:10) that at = the name of Jesus = every knee should bow, = of heavenly ones, = and of earthly ones, = and of ones under the earth;
· (Phil 2:11) and that = every tongue = should confess that = Jesus Christ = is Lord, = to the glory of God the Father.

“Lying – 101”…Blog.


“Lying – 101”…Blog.

How about it… have you ever “Lied or been Lied To?” Well of course, we all have. Did you know as a child I was not taught to Lie… but to always tell the Truth, no matter what the consequences were. Soon enough, I saw adults Lying. When I questioned them… ‘I was reprimanded’. Still inside of me, there was that something that told me that… Lies are always… ‘Wrong!’

How about the Politicians… that have told us Lies? It is what they… ‘Haven’t told US’… that is the biggest ‘Lie’. The USA Social Security system will be Bankrupt in 2017, by supporting more than are paying… into the System. One ‘Never’ hears about the Loans our Government has… made to itself… from those funds.

Have you noticed… the Gas Prices lately? They always go up, before Holidays and Summer trips. The supposed shortage of Oil, worldwide is nothing more than… “Disinformation”. There is enough Oil on the ‘Alaska North Slope’ and in the Gulf of Mexico, so that we as a nation… would Never have to buy… Foreign Oil Again. Other foreign countries are drilling in the Gulf!

Grocery Prices too… are a Lie. Simply check the… “Ounces in the Package”. Almost ALL producers have lowered their container volume. The boxes of cereal are smaller, mayonnaise and many of the containers have changed their size to accommodate their… ‘Lower Volume Contents’. Have you even noticed… or did that one get by… You?

New Laws are… working their way through congress. They are designed to… ‘Correctly Inform’… the consumers about the changing Credit Card charges. They are drafted to… ‘Correctly Inform’… the consumer of how long it would take to pay off the card, only making the minimum payment. In addition statements would show each month the accumulated interest it cost you instead of monthly interest.

Why all these… Lies in our… “One Nation under God?” Simply because America is “Not” a Christian Nation. We are only a… ‘Cultural Christian Nation’… in ‘word only’ and… “Not in Practice!” Why else… would so many… try to defraud one another? Think about this one!

· “No matter what you say… it’s your actions… that speak of You!”

It is really… that… ‘Simple?’ Lies form the basis of our society! Say it isn’t so? How then did Wall Street… float unsecured, over priced real estate, with lending, that could not be repaid by the borrower? Why would some take a loan… when they knew… they could not possibly repay it? Oh well, the lender… approved me… so it must be right! …”NOT!”

Lies will always… come back to haunt each and every one of us. No one escapes. Lies have become our… “Tools of Choice!” We have in fact… become our own gods [small-g]… through this thinking. That… “Age defying cream” and… the ‘Hair coloring’ has simply been part of the Lie! In reality, we ‘are not really’ who… we Pretend to be!

· (Numbers 23:19) God is not a man = that He should lie, = neither the son of man = that He should repent. = Has He said, = and = shall He not do it? = Or has He spoken, = and = shall He not = make it good?

You see most… have their opinion about ‘God’… from a Preacher, Priest, Rabbi or some other religious teacher. But when you go to the Bible you see the Truth and the Nature of God. He never lies, no matter what the situation. Because I am a Born Again Christian… I have not only the power… ‘Not to Lie’… “I choose not to Lie”… because of what Christ Jesus did for me!

Recently, when speaking… with an Atheist, I asked him… “Do you ever lie?” He responded, ‘Sometimes, when necessary.’ His rational was that when necessary… it is permissible. I then asked him, “Suppose your spouse Lied to You?” He thought a minute and responded, “No, that is not right!” I told him… “You cannot have it… Both Ways!”

· A person is no better… than their ability… “To tell the Truth”.

How about today…
think about Lies and how they affect… you and yours? Not only today, but tomorrow and forever! We will always harvest… what we plant. Some now… and some later, but the harvest… will always come back! What goes around… Comes Around!

That is the… reason that “Christ Jesus” came to be our ‘Savior and Lord’. He paid the price of our… Sin/Sins. Will that keep us from the ‘Harvest of Lies?’ Sorry “NO!”


But you then can… “Confess and Forsake”… and… “Plant a new Field of Truth… to Harvest from!”

· (John 8:36) Therefore = if the Son = shall make you free, = you shall be free indeed.

“PROFANITY – 101”...Blog.


“PROFANITY – 101”...Blog.


Why do people… use Profanity? Someone once said… “Profanity is the Empty Mind… ‘Trying To Validate’… their Human Existence… in the face of… Logic & Reason!” The next time someone uses profanity, does that profanity make their statement any more valid? Not! WOW! Could it be that Simple?

But of course… those that ‘USE Profanity’… seldom if ever… ‘Have An Original Thought!” They do not have the… ‘Adult Skills… of Simple Communication!’ What is it you want me to hear? Why then do you not speak in language that is pleasing to the ear? I tend to shut people out that have stooped to use Profanity in their simple attempt to communicate. WOW! Could it be that Simple?

Have you ever… watched the Comedy Channel? Occasionally I will turn it on, just to see what the ‘common mindset’ of what people think is funny. There they are… with Nothing Constructive to do… But Laugh at the… “3-4-5 Letter Profanities”! “Empty Minds Laughing At Nothings!” [EMLAN] ...WOW! Could it be that Simple?


Something as… ‘Simple and Profound’… as this parody… ‘Is Funny’… without Any Profanity! Think this through, “Does this Video provoke any real ‘Thoughts of Things’…. or is it just… a Laugh”? I have milked a Cows Utters and have drunk… ‘Raw Milk!’ Yum! Yum!


We all communicate… at different levels, some of it is heard and some of it is rejected. Most men have the… ‘Skill of selective Deafness!’ …LOL! Some women talk all the time in order to be heard. Depending on the skill of the Listener, we all select what and what not… we hear.

“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”

How about our… words. They are like money in the bank. Some fall on open ears and some fall on deaf ears. Hearing is just as important as Speaking. Could it be that simple? I believe so as I hear and read much of what goes on, only to say that most of it call be called ‘politically correct’. Their agenda is to… “Not to have you Think about what they Said!”

· (Matthew 12:33-to-37) "Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree rotten and its fruit rotten. For a tree is known by its fruit.
· (Matt 12:34) You children of serpents! How can you say anything good when you are evil? For the mouth speaks out of the abundance of the heart.
· (Matt 12:35) A good person brings good things out of a good treasure, and an evil person brings evil things out of an evil treasure.
· (Matt 12:36) I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give an account for every thoughtless word they utter.
· (Matt 12:37) For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned."

The Next Time... YOU Hear Profanity… Check out the Person! Could it be… that they are Unable and Unwilling… To Think and Logically… “About Life & Things”? WOW! Could it be that Simple?

“The Law – 101”…Blog.


“The Law – 101”…Blog.

Do you know… the law about speeding or driving under the influence? Of course we that drive surely do. Or should I say we used to? The traffic laws are to keep… society… in an orderly fashion and save lives. They are for our own good and… not to harm us. Other Laws protect other areas of our ‘life and freedoms’.

Just last month… here in Florida, “Three teenagers were ‘Killed’ and one permanently injured.” Speeding in a residential area and passing unsafely, caused the car to smash into a tree. Those killed will never graduate even from high school. Did they obey and keep the Law… or disrespect and disregard… “The Law”

With the Law comes… ‘Protection’. In the simple obeying of traffic laws; those killed teenagers and their grieving parents would have relief from their sorrow. But now, they are only receiving… what they did. It is a tough lesson to learn… but perhaps some other teens, will learn from… their mistakes. Some will not!

“Guns don’t kill”… people do! There are laws in each and every state in addition to numerous Federal Laws to make society safe. I have a ‘Carry Permit’ in my state. And yet one may still hear of the… “Ignorant calling for more gun restrictions and laws”. President Obama desires to disarm Americans with pending legislation: “Superseding the Law… of the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights”.

How about Wall Street… and their Stealing and Selling of… “Junk Financial Bonds and Securities?” The existing “Laws” were negated by changes in the lending practices and procedures. An end run around the “Law and common sense”… has led to people… without proper credit… borrowing more than they could afford to pay. Massive house foreclosures have resulted.

Still the Law… is good if applied and kept. Many today drive a… ‘tat faster’… than the posted speed limit. I too have done so in the past, but I find that I have to constantly… ‘Keep myself in check’. IF… I am pulled over in a “Radar Speed Trap”… THEN…’Who is at fault’? Is it the car for going too fast… or the driver? Personal Responsibility… is the Key!

How about the… ‘Animal Leash Laws’? Do you like it when you find… ‘Animal deposits’… on your front lawn? Or when you walk in a park, do you… ‘Pick up, after your pet’… as required by The Law? I often find paw marks on the pollen and dust on my car parked in the Carport. Simple Laws are to protect… the rest of us from… “Human Irresponsibility”.

· (Hebrews 13:4) Let marriage = be kept honorable = in every way, = and the marriage bed = undefiled. = = For God = will judge = those who commit = sexual sins, = especially those = who commit adultery.

"You Shall Not"…
is often framed as a Law to protect. How about… “Venereal Diseases” The admonition form God… to keep one sexually pure… is for our Protection. We all know that the “AIDS Virus is Terminal”. Have you seen the “Valtrex” commercials on the TV? They state that over “12%” of the population has… Herpes. Perhaps a simple trip to this site will… open you minds to what can happen… for a simple violation of… The Law of God.





Does information like this… “Scare the Hell out of You?” If it doesn’t… it should! All for the simple pleasure of Sex outside of Marriage, one puts in jeopardy… “Their life and peace of mind”. Do you even think that something so pleasurable… in a Violation of God’s Law… would bring about… “Such… Consequences?”

Well that’s not… my case, you may say. Well what then about the… “Rest of God’s Law?” Did you ever think that “Lying and Cheating and Falsely speaking ill of another [slander or liable]” would too… go unpunished? Do you really believe that you can just… get away with breaking the Law? You have done so already… but for how long?

· (Galatians 6:7-8-9) Stop being deceived; = God is not to be ridiculed. = A person harvests = whatever he plants.
· (Gal 6:8) For the person = who plants in his flesh = will harvest decay = from the flesh, = = but the person who plants = in the Spirit = will harvest = eternal life = from the Spirit.
· (Gal 6:9) Let us = not get tired = of doing what is good, = = for at the right time = we will reap a harvest = if we do not give up.

That is why… we need a Savoir. We are all… Sinners! Christ Jesus came to set us Free… not only from the… “Penalty of Sin.. but from… the Power of Sin!” We, all of us, will not get away from the Field of Life… which we have ‘Planted’. You have heard of the saying… “What Goes Around, Comes Around?” That is simply what the above Bible verses say.

· (John 8:36) So if = the Son [Jesus]] sets you free, = you will be free indeed!"

· (John 10:10-11) The thief comes only = to steal, = slaughter, = and destroy. = = I [Jesus] have come = that they may have life, = and have it abundantly.
· (John 10:11) "I am the good shepherd. = The good shepherd = lays down his life for the sheep.

How about You…? Have you come to “Christ Jesus” for Forgiveness of Sin/Sins… and to be set free from the Power of Sin…? Or are you living your life your own way…? Can you give yourself an honest answer…? He already knows how you have been living!

I do not… say these things to condemn any, nor to accuse or excuse any. I simply share, what is available for ‘You’… “From God and His Word”… so that you may have life… “More Abundantly”. Please feel free to write me for more.

“The Devil – 101”…Blog.


“The Devil – 101”…Blog.


I have been… thinking about this one for some time. How, do I present “The Truth” about, ‘Satan-The Devil”? “Hollywood”… has portrayed him with… “Lies and Obfuscation”. By this trick, much of the public has become even more… ‘ignorant and confused’. Mixed messages will often do this.

Many say they… 'Believe in God' and yet in doing so, one must also believe in the Devil. Where do you get your information… about the Devil? Is it from those ‘false caricatures’ of a red person, with a pitchfork and a pointed tail? Or is it that ‘heinous hideous monster’ that is often portrayed in those evil spirit Videos and Movies? Or even from the nice guy… “Hell Boy?”

In his beginning… he was an ‘Angel of God’. His name was “Lucifer – The Shining One” and he was beautiful and wise and could even… produce music from an organ in his body. He was the ‘5-star general’ of all the angelic creation of God. He even guarded the… Throne of God, alone. All this can be read about in the Bible in… “Isaiah 14 & Ezekiel 28.”

What then went wrong…? Simply, he wanted to be… greater than “GOD”. This sounds very much like most of the humans, who think they are their… “Own god [small-g]”. Say it isn’t so? Do you give God his proper place in your life and possessions and life goals, or are you your… “Own Boss”? What happened to Satan’s ability to make music, when he… ‘Rebelled?’

Now, the Throne of God… is guarded by… ‘Four Cherubim’. Satan now rules in the “kingdoms of mankind”. Where do all the Wars come from? But… how did that happen? Simply by the disobedience of… “Adam & Eve”… the parents of the human race. How do I know that Satan rules in the realm of mankind? Jesus said so!

· (Luke 4:6-7-8) And the Devil = said to Him [Jesus], = = All this power = I will give = You, = and the glory of them; = = for it has been delivered to me. = And = I give it = to whomever = I will.
· (Luke 4:7) Therefore = if You [Jesus] = will worship me [Satan], = all = shall be yours.
· (Luke 4:8) And = Jesus answered = and said = to him, = = Get behind me, Satan! = = For it is written, = = "You shall worship the Lord your God, = and Him only = shall you serve.

Never once did… Jesus even say, ‘No, that does not belong to you!’ He knew that when mankind sinned, they gave… “The Propriety of Mankind”… to the influential rule of Satan. Mankind still has ‘free will’ to choose… “Whom to Serve!” The Devil is not worried if they serve… ‘themselves’ or him. Just so they do not serve… “God and His Word, the Bible”. That is why Jesus said this…

· (Luke 4:4) And Jesus = answered him, = saying, = It is written that = "man shall not live by bread alone, = = but by = every Word of God."

Why else do you… think God sent ‘Christ Jesus’ to be… “The ‘Savior and Lord’ of all Mankind?” What then, makes mankind so resistant to “Christ Jesus” and to “God and to The Bible?” Does man do it on his own or does he have help in his rebellion too… “Against God?”

· (2Corinthians 4:3-4) But if our gospel be hid, = it is hid = to them= that are perishing:
· (2Cor 4:4) In their case, = the god of this world [Satan] = =has blinded = the minds = of those = who do not believe = = to keep them from seeing = the light = of the glorious gospel of Christ, = = Who is the image of God.

It is kind of… scary once you know this! Someone has been controlling your thoughts about Christ Jesus and His Word, The Bible! I thought you said… I had free will? Yes you do to the extent that… “You have ‘not rejected’ the Word of God!” Perhaps this verse… will show you what I mean.

· (Matthew 13:18-18) "Listen, then, = to the parable = about the sower.
· (Matt 13:19) When anyone = = hears = The Word = = about the Kingdom [Of God] = = yet = doesn't understand it, = = the evil one [Satan] = = comes = and = = snatches away = what was sown = in his heart. = = This is what was sown along the path.

Each and Every… one of us has ‘some’ knowledge ‘about’ God. The very creation complexity itself speaks about a designer. Even God Himself has placed in each of us… “A God Hole”. What is that, you may say? It is that knowledge that there is… ‘Something More’… than, just what we see. It can only be filled with the ‘Holy Spirit’ of God. When one is… “Born Again by the Holy Spirit” their eyes are opened to Truth. That is what… Salvation… is all about.

Again, Satan wants… to keep us from the… “Knowledge of God!” Those Truths are found in His Word the Bible. Say it isn’t so? Please tell what other book… in all of World History… has attained to such acclaim as… “The Bible?” And please tell me which Book… in all of World History has been… “Spoken ‘Bad’ About… by the Unbelieving”... More than The Bible? None!

· (1Corinthians 2:14-15) But = the natural man = = does not receive = the things = of the Spirit of God, = for they are = = foolishness to him; = = neither can he know them, = because they are spiritually discerned.
· (1Cor 2:15) But he = who is spiritual = judges all things, = yet he himself = is judged by no one.

See, most have… even been so blinded to… “The Truth of The Bible”… that they didn’t even realize that they were being… “Duped by Satan!” What other explanation… does anyone have for such hatred… for a book, called ‘fiction’ by the unbelievers? This hatred for God’s Word, The Bible comes from Satan, and you did not even know it!

What is his… “Trick of all Tricks?” Simply to get you… to question God… about what God has already said, in His Word. Can it be that simple? But of course, the simplest trick of all time can be found in the first human response of Satan.

· (Genesis 3:1-to-5) Now the serpent = was more cunning = than any beast of the field = which Jehovah God had made. = = And he = said to the woman, = = Is it so = = that God has said, = = You shall not eat = of every tree = of the garden?
· (Gen 3:2) And = the woman said = to the serpent, = We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden.
· (Gen 3:3) = But of the fruit = of the tree = which is in the middle of the garden, = = God has said, = = You = shall not eat of it, = = neither shall you touch it, = lest you die.
· (Gen 3:4) And = the serpent = said to the woman, = You shall not surely die,
· (Gen 3:5) for God knows = that in the day = you eat of it, = then your eyes shall be opened, = and you shall be = = as God, = knowing good and evil.

See how very simple… his tricks are? Just to question what God has said. To question God is to simply say… that one is a wise and knowing as God. Satan lost his position for trying to be God. So he has… convinced mankind… that they too, can be their own god [small-g]. Are you your own god [small-g]… or is “God your… Lord and Savior?” Those are the “Only… Two Choices!”

Did you know… that Satan even has ‘ministers and workers’? And No, they are not the devil worshipers that you hear about. He already has the world’s people blinded to the Truth of the Word of God. His ministers… come as he does, as an… “Angel of Light!”

· (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) Such people = are false apostles, = dishonest workers = who are masquerading = = as apostles of Christ.
· (2Cor 11:14) And no wonder, = = since Satan himself = = masquerades = as an angel of light.
· (2Cor 11:15) So it is not surprising = if = his servants = also masquerade = as servants of righteousness. = = Their doom = will match their deeds!

Did you know that…? Even getting you to think that… “All”… ‘Preachers are Money grabbers’… is one of his tools. Or have you ever heard… “All Christians are Phonies”? Again, the Lie! Getting you to believe that… All the Christians… “in the entire world are wrong”… is simple proof. His power to… “Blind the Minds”… of those that have rejected… “Christ Jesus and the His Word”, is working worldwide.

What is your recourse…? What can you do… once you have begun to realize these, Truths? How about really searching for God? He has promised that in… “Jeremiah 29:11-to-13.” God in all His Mercy and Grace… is still waiting for mankind to receive His Free Gift of Salvation. That is why Christ Jesus came… to be our Savior & Lord. Did you ever think about that?

· (James 4:7-to-10) Therefore = submit yourselves = to God. = Resist the devil, = and = he = will flee = from you.
· (Jam 4:8) Draw near to God, = and = He = will draw near to you. = Cleanse your hands, = sinners; = and purify your hearts, = double-minded ones.
· (Jam 4:9) Be afflicted, = and mourn = and weep. = Let your laughter = be turned to mourning = and your joy = to heaviness.
· (Jam 4:10) Be humbled = before the Lord, = and = He = will lift you up.


· (2Peter 3:9) The Lord = is not slow = about his promise, = as some people understand slowness, = but is being patient = with you. = He does not want = anyone = to perish, = but wants = everyone = to come to repentance.


· (Ezekiel 18:32) For = I = have no delight = in the death of him who dies, = says the Lord Jehovah. = Therefore turn and live.


· (Acts 17:30-31) Though = God = has overlooked those times of ignorance, = He = now commands = = everyone = = everywhere = to repent,
· (Acts 17:31) for He = has set = a day = when = He = is going to judge = the world = with justice = through a man = He has appointed, = and = He has given proof = of this = to everyone = by raising Him [Jesus] = from the dead."

OK, where do I… go from here if I believe… what you have said here? Acknowledging that you need God… is the first step. May I simply suggest that you get your Bible and start reading in the… “Gospel of Luke”.

But suppose… I do not have a Bible? Then you may, download one from this site. There are English Bibles and… ‘Many Foreign Languages’… both ‘Asian and European’. You have to use a computer to read this… well then download this “Free Bible Software Program”… till you buy your own… “Paper One!”

http://www.e-sword.net/

OK, so where… do I go from here? Your first step is to acknowledge that you haven’t given God… “His rightful place in your life”. Satan does not want that. May I simply suggest that you start reading in the… “Gospel of Luke?”

IF… you have any questions about the Bible or God... please feel free to contact me. I may be able to provide you with some Christian helps.

“Emotional Abuse – 101”


Recently I was… watching a movie on TCM, Turner Classic Movie channel. They have the older classic movies… “With NO Commercial Interruptions!” I thought about writing Ted Turner and thanking him. In reading his bio, it stated that he was… ‘deeply religious’… as a child, “Despite his father’s… ‘Emotional Abuse’!” Really, do you think that is True?

When someone accuses… “Emotional Abuse”… what exactly does that mean? Does that mean that the drug addict was… “Emotionally Abused”? How about the Thief, was he or she… “Emotionally Abused”? Or the “Adulterer or the Adulteress” were they… “Emotionally Abused”… and so all of them, then… “Chose their Response… to Life”?

In many court cases… the term, “Emotional Abuse” is often used against the defendant. Say it is not so? How many women… have accused their husbands of… “Emotional Abuse?” How many ‘delinquent children’ have used the same claim of “Emotional Abuse” against their parents or guardians?

Of course… ‘Each and Every One’… has not taken the “Personal Responsibility” for their… “Own Actions!” In any family situation, someone has to make the decisions as to what is going to be done and what is not to be done. This responsibility is the mandate to the Fathers, many of whom have relegated it to the Mothers.

Back in the 60’s… there was an entertainer named, ‘Flip Wilson’. His comedic line was… “The Devil made me do it!” It got many laughs on TV. I did not think it was funny. In the last 10-years, ‘Bart Simpson’ has taken his place with… “Not ME!” Many laugh to the point they are... "Deluded about Truth".

Personal Responsibility… has been replaced with… ‘The Emotional Abuse Syndrome.’ To the teen it goes like this, “I cannot pick up my room because I was emotionally abused as a child.” I will make you [The Parent]… feel guilty because YOU cannot give me… ‘The Things I Deserve!’ You did not have them when you were a child, so you do not want me to have them!

Is teaching ‘Responsibility’… “Emotional Abuse?” If you have to with hold privileges, TV, Internet, Cell Phone or even Dating… as correction for a bad attitude, is that… “Emotional Abuse?” How many Teens have used this trick… to manipulate their parents, especially the Mothers?

Do you know… the saying, ‘The apple does not fall far from the Tree?’ It simply means what they learn at home, they will… “Emulate in their lives”. How then can anyone, from the Parent, to the Employer, to the Next Generation expect to continue as an orderly functioning society when we… ‘Excuse Away Responsibility… As Emotional Abuse?”

“What the Parent… ‘Permits in moderation’… the Child… ‘will excuse’… in Excess!”


How then can… and does anyone claim… “Emotional Abuse?” A friend of mine, who is a school teacher, left his 6-year position to… ‘Sell Insurance!’ After being physically threatened by parents, whose children failed to complete homework assignments, verbally attacked him, he said, “Enough is Enough!” The child failing in school… was 'His fault', “Not the Students!”... as the parents claimed.

I was flying… on a plane to Boston several years ago. I sat next to a ‘Personal Manager’ of a very prestigious company. She told me that most of the ‘employee terminations’ had been due to people, violating the company… ‘Internet Policy’. Each one knew, that this written policy was taught to each employee, as their business was mostly internet related.

Some had even… claimed violation of their civil rights and “Emotional Abuse” with such a restrictive policy. None prevailed in their legal suits or labor board complaints. Such excuses never prevail in such proceedings. How could one, even hope to run a profitable business, where the employees. ‘Pretend to know better than the Boss?’

Have we been… brainwashed to think that we are not responsible for our own actions. Dr Benjamin Spock who wrote his ‘World Famous’ book on Child Rearing and baby care, eventually found this out. His book was translated into… “26-foreign languages”… and was available everywhere in the world.


What they did not... Publish “world-wide”… was this statement. I found it after a hard search. Most that hold to his philosophy will not acknowledge what he has done to most of the world.

On permissive behavior - by Dr. Benjamin Spock, baby care specialist and Vietnam War objector. He now says, "We have reared a generation of brats. Parents aren't firm enough with their children for fear of losing their love or incurring their resentment. This is a cruel deprivation that we professionals have imposed on mothers and fathers. Of course, we did it with the best of intentions. We didn't realize until it was too late how our know-it-all attitude was undermining the self assurance of parents."

Wow, can you… Believe That? After ruining 5-generations of people, the adage seems too true. “It is too late to close the barn door when the livestock is gone!”

All those… false claims of… “Emotional Abuse”… was simply a continuance of… “The Lie” of … ‘No Personal Responsibility’… For One’s Actions!” I have flown around 500,000 miles in my lifetime. Never once have I seen a co-pilot… take control of the plane… from the Pilot. Someone has to be in control.

Leadership is never… an easy position. The false claim of… “Emotional Abuse”… will always continue to be an ‘Excuse’ for… “Not Obeying!” Its twin sister… “Verbal Abuse”… will always be there, as they are… “Siamese Twins!”


You’re Not… the Boss of Me Now…!

How about you...? Are you… “Responsively Compliant”… to your job description or even to your mate? Or are you teaching to Others… through your rebellion… the way, you believe to be better? Have you spoken disparagingly about your… “boss or your mate?” One question, “Who died and made you The Boss?” What is your response…?

Shucks! Why are you… “Emotionally and Verbally… ‘Abusing’ Me?”

· (1Samuel 15:23) For rebellion = is as = the sin of witchcraft, = and = stubbornness = is as = iniquity and idol-worship. = Because you = have rejected = the Word of Jehovah, = He has also rejected you from being king!


· (Luke 7:8-9) For I also am = a man set under authority, = having under me soldiers. = And I say to one, Go, = and he goes; = and to another, Come, = and he comes; = and to my servant, Do this, = and he does it.
· (Luke 7:9) And hearing these things, = = Jesus marveled at him. = And turning to the crowd following Him, = He said, = I say to you, = I have not found such faith, = no, = not in Israel.

Simply Put… “Emotional and/or Verbal Abuse”… is very simply ‘an Excuse’… “Not to Obey”… those that have the authority… over us.

And…No! By no means… am I even suggesting that... 'you or anyone' Do… “Anything… Illegal or Immoral!”

It is always… the simple little decisions, that when added together… “Make Our Life and Who we are”! No… Not the ‘two or three’ Big Decisions we make… but the “Millions of Little Decisions”… that make us… “Who We ARE!

“An ‘Excuse’… is Simply… the ‘Skin of a Reason’… ‘Stuffed’… with a Lie!”

“Tomorrow – 101”…Blog.


“Free Gas Tomorrow”… is what the sign read at the Petrol Station. I went there the next day and the same sign was still there. I asked the attendant, when is there ‘free gas?’ He replied, “Tomorrow!” I told him, I saw the sign “Yesterday” and came here… today for the… ‘free gas.’ He simply said… “Tomorrow!”

What about Tomorrow…? Will you wait till then, to do only what you must do today? This morning I got up and found dishes in my sink. Apparently, “no one told the dish fairy” to come to my house. Like the tooth fairy… I thought that all I had to do… was to leave them till… Tomorrow! …LOL!

After starting the coffee… I simply became a… ‘Pearl Diver.’ That was my first job, when starting my working career, many years ago. The manager, who was both 'funny and wise', told me that I could work as a, pearl diver. We only have an opening for a 'dish washer'. But if you think of them as pearls, the job will go faster. It simply added some “Glamour” to a mundane job.

How many of us… put off till… Tomorrow… the things that we need to do today? I do so and have to scold myself occasionally. I glanced at the Calendar and found that there are some things that I cannot put off till… ‘Tomorrow!’ How about you? Are you busy enough… or too busy?

Tomorrow = will be here… soon enough. I have a list of projects that I have set for myself and the list grows each day. If I put off till… Tomorrow… what I need to do today, the list will… simply grow longer. That too is how life is. I can get away without shaving today, but I ‘must’ take out the garbage. …LOL!

· (Acts 26:27-28) King Agrippa, = do you believe the Prophets? = I know that you believe.
· (Acts 26:28) And Agrippa = said to Paul, = Do you persuade me to be a Christian in but a little? [Tomorrow?]

Has someone spoken… to you about… Christ Jesus and what He has done for You? Have you thought about GOD? I mean only the One True God… that has created All Thing, The God of the Bible? Have you ever thought about why… we are here…?

Have you put off… thinking where you will spend… “Eternity?” Today… is the day to make some eternal decisions. Not… Tomorrow! How about it, can there be Anything More Important? IF there is, I would surely like to know.

· (2Corinthians 6:2)
For He says, = "In an acceptable time = I heard you, = and = in a day of salvation, = I helped you;" = = Behold, = now is the accepted time. = = Behold, = now is the day of salvation.


· (Romans 10:9-to-13) Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
· (Rom 10:10) For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses unto salvation.
· (Rom 10:11) For the Scripture says, "Everyone believing on Him shall not be put to shame."
· (Rom 10:12) For there is no difference both of Jew and of Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call on Him.
· (Rom 10:13) For everyone, "whoever shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved."


This can be… as simple and forthright as praying this prayer…


“Father God”… I have never really thought about all You have done for me… through Christ Jesus. I know that Your Word says I am a sinner and that I… personally need a Savior. I believe that You raised Jesus from the dead and… I ask Him to be my Lord and Savior… the best I know how! With this simple faith as a child… I ask you to cleanse me from my Sin and… receive me as Your child. Lead me into the Truth… of Your Word, the Bible. Teach me and motivate me… to know more about You. … I pray this in Jesus Name and for Your Glory, Amen & Amen!


IF you have… prayed this prayer, please write me for more information… how to grow as a Child of God. I will be more than happy to point you into His Word and provide you with some good materials so that you… may grow in the Grace of God.

“Bait & Switch – 101”…Blog.


Have you ever heard… “Let the Buyer Beware? Of course you have and today it really has a more potent meaning than ever before. Most of the time those mega-warehouses have advertized specials, ‘Only 5-per Store!’ I was the first one in the door and was told, ‘sorry the shipment did not come in’. What, no rain checks… either! Sorry!
Normally I squeeze… the nickel so hard the “Indian gets on the Buffalo… and rides away”! For those of you that are not familiar with that term, it means the buffalo nickel. It speaks of ‘Complete frugality’… in purchasing products or services.

The ‘First and Greatest’… concept of Consumerism and my ‘personal’ favorite saying about spending and buying is…
“It is Not… ‘How Much’… Money, YOU have… It is How… ‘You Spend’… the Money, you have!”
Right now I… am shopping for a Camcorder, a digital high definition with a hard drive and still picture capability. The one I liked is the… “Sony HDR-XR520V” It has many advanced features, a “12 - Megapixel Still” capability and High Definition recording on a “250-Gig Internal Hard Drive” No more tape cassettes and transferring tapes to CD’s. I would no longer have to carry multiple cameras... “Only One”... when traveling.
Before I buy… anything, I shop ‘on line’ first. I find the best price and then I go to my local store and see what they have. This way I get the feel of the product, especially if I am buying shoes. Many times when purchasing on line, there is no sales tax and minimal shipping charge. During the Christmas season, many merchants have… free shipping.

Long story short… I found this camera on line for about half of what other stores had it for. Sound too good to be True? Ever wonder Why? It is called the… “Bait & Switch!” They bait you with the fantastic price, tell you it is not in stock and then sell you another model. Sound familiar. Somehow the ‘American Consumer’ has been duped many times.
Several internet sites… selling this camcorder had listed… ‘In stock and immediate shipping’. After being put on hold… more than once… ‘I was told repeatedly’… we will have that in two weeks. So I decided to seek some further investigation. There are several sites, like these.
http://newjersey.bbb.org/WWWRoot/Report.aspx?site=89&bbb=0221&firm=27003943

http://thoughts-of-dave..blogspot.com/2009/01/photolooncom-photo-loon.html

http://beatthat.com/merchants/show/photo-loon

As you may see…
at these sites the Business does not have such a reputable rating, nor are they honest about their practices and practices. Again the proverb… “Let the buyer… Beware!” Many of the sites are reputable, but one good rule of thumb is… “IF it sounds too good to be True… It Probably Is!” “… Liar, Liar… Pants of Fire!”
I even went… to the Sony site where they are having a 20% off on their closeout models. But even with that discount, one can do better at their local electronics store. The camcorders that they had did not have the features I wanted. I felt it is better to wait… rather than settle for something that is technically inferior, but still better than I presently own. I will just wait for the price, “I Want to pay… ‘Not the one’… they want me to Pay!”

Patience is the Key… in any ‘purchase or decision’. I often sleep on it… and wake up with a new perspective. Remember the selling key is to get the consumer hooked and real him or her in. Purposely… they will often sell… “You Owe it to Yourself!” Often just waiting… will yield you pleasant results.
· (Luke 12:15) And He [Jesus] said to them, = Watch and keep = yourselves = from covetousness. = For a man's life = is not in = the abundance of the things = which he possesses.

Is there Anything…
that you can purchase… that you cannot live without? Perhaps, if I simply take you back to the. “9-11 Terrorist Attack?” That week, was there anything that you really needed that you could not… live without? Truthfully, I could not think of anything that… “I had to have immediately!” “Simple patience”… will work Each and Every time… even in a dating situation! …LOL!
What you Own... Owns You...!

“The Sabbath & the NT Christian – 101”…Blog.


Have you ever… wondered why some worship on the Sabbath and some on Sunday? Many seemed not to be concerned about this fact. But those that practice & preach the Sabbath are adamant about Sabbath Keeping. Perhaps we could look at the Scriptures and see... The Truth?


(Mark 2:27) And He said to them, The Sabbath came into being for man's sake, and not man for the Sabbath’s sake.

MANY things… have been dragged into… True Christianity… in the Name of “Denominationalism”. Some say they Worship on Sunday… and Some on Saturday, which they say is The Sabbath. Most of all… I believe JESUS said it all… in this Verse.

· (Matthew 22:29) Jesus answered them, "You are mistaken because you don't know the Scriptures or God's power.

The Sabbath... was 'Only' given to the Nation Israel, for their Keeping. Their captivity in Babylon for ’70-years’, was due to them… NOT KEEPING the Sabbath. Jeremiah, Isaiah and Daniel will verify this fact. The Sabbath Law… was NOT Given to the NT Church.
Jesus did not say to… “Worship on the Sabbath”.

His address as to Worship… only dealt with "The Heart Issue"… not the specific day!

· (John 4:20-to-24) Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain. But you Jews say that the place where people should worship is in Jerusalem."
· (John 4:21) Jesus said to her, "Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when you Samaritans will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
· (John 4:22) You don't know what you're worshiping. We know what we're worshiping, for salvation comes from the Jews.
· (John 4:23) Yet the hour is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Indeed, the Father is looking for people like that to worship him.
· (John 4:24) God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

JESUS specifically said… ‘The Place’ was not important. During the OT, because of the Adultery of David... the Kingdom was divided after the death of Solomon. Look at 1Kings 13 and see what GOD did to tell them WHERE worship should take place.

Even during the… early church age, ‘The Acts Period’, there were the Gnostics who tried to make the early Christians… put themselves back under The Law! Yes they said, Salvation is by Grace... [Ephesians 2:8-9-10 & Titus 3:4-5-6]… but one must keep the Law also. The Holy Spirit through Paul had to say this…

· (Galatians 1:8-9-10) But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that person be condemned!
· (Gal 1:9) What we have told you in the past I am now telling you again: If anyone proclaims to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let that person be condemned!
· (Gal 1:10) Am I now trying to win the approval of people or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be Christ's servant.

Today one can… drive in almost any area… or… look in the Yellow Pages… and see… “A Full Gospel Church!” By their words… ‘Full gospel’… they infer and say, “All other Churches... are NOT Preaching… the Full Gospel!” Did you even look at their church… that way?

Those that asy… Worship is on “Only on the Sabbath”… are in reality saying, "All Others" are worshipping GOD… on the Wrong Day!” They by their practice of Sabbath worship, are making this Statement to all... that theSabbath Worship... is the only way! They even publish a book… to Prove their Point!

When conflict arose… in the early Church, [Acts] they had a church meeting. What was said in that meeting about… Worship? In Acts chapter one, church business was conducted… without the Holy Spirit to find a replacement for Judas. They were GIVEN by JESUS… Specific Instructions!

· (Acts 1:7-8) He answered them, "It is not for you to know what times or periods the Father has set by his own authority. (Acts 1:8) But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

And yet... this church business was not 'Sanctioned by the LORD'! Because the churhc was told [commanded] to wait for the Promise of the Holy Spirit. They, like so many other churches, did what they do… “Without The Holy Spirit’s… Validation”.

· (Acts 1:23) So they nominated two men-Joseph called Barsabbas, who also was called Justus, and Matthias... [Neither was Called Apostle... by The Scriptures!]

How many… NT Apostles were there after Judas Defected? Simple, 'Eleven'. Who then was the 12th? The Scripture says… "PAUL", who wrote most of the New Testament.

· (Romans 1:1) From Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God,
· (1Corinthains 9:1) I am free, am I not? I am an apostle, am I not? I have seen Jesus our Lord, haven't I? You are my work in the Lord, aren't you?
· (2Cointhains 1:1) From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the church of God that is in Corinth, with all the holy people throughout Achaia.
· (Galatians 1:1) From Paul-an apostle not sent from men or by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father Who raised Him from the dead-
· (Ephesians 1:1) From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by God's will, to his holy and faithful people in Ephesus who are in union with Christ Jesus.

WHEN… was the Holy Spirit given to the NT Church in the fulfillment of the Promise of JESUS… in John 7:38-39? The Holy Spirit… causes us to be… “Born of the Spirit of God!”

· (Acts 2:1-to-4) When the day of Pentecost came, all of them were together in one place.
· (Acts 2:2) Suddenly, a sound like the roaring of a mighty windstorm came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
· (Acts 2:3) They saw tongues like flames of fire that separated, and one rested on each of them.
· (Acts 2:4) All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them that ability.

And the fact of the… “12 New Testament Apostles” where is that found in the Scriptures?

· (Matthew 19:28) Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne in the renewed creation, you who have followed me will also sit on… twelve thrones… governing… the twelve tribes of Israel.

Now, why did I… go through this 'Logic'… just to show that "The Holy Spirit"… is needed for True Worship! That also included… “Church Business!” And Most Important.... for the Understanding of The Scriptures!

What did the “Jewish Believing Church” of Acts… write to the… “Gentile Believing Churches”?
· (Acts 15:19-to-29) Therefore, I have decided that we should not trouble these gentiles who are turning to God.
· (Act 15:20) Instead, we should write to them = to keep away from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from anything strangled, and from blood.
· (Act 15:21) After all, Moses has had people to proclaim him in every city for generations, and on every Sabbath he is read aloud in the synagogues."
· (Act 15:22) Then the apostles, the elders, and the whole church decided to choose some of their men to send with Paul and Barnabas to Antioch. These were Judas, who was called Barsabbas, and Silas, who were leaders among the brothers.
· (Act 15:23) They wrote this letter for them to deliver: "From the apostles and the elders, your brothers, to their gentile brothers in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia. Greetings.
· (Act 15:24) We have heard that some men, coming from us without instructions from us, have said things to trouble you and have unsettled your minds.
· (Act 15:25) So we have unanimously decided to choose men and send them to you with our dear Barnabas and Paul,
· (Act 15:26) who have risked their lives for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ.
· (Act 15:27) We have therefore sent Judas and Silas to tell you the same things by word of mouth.
· (Act 15:28) For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us = = not to place on you any burden but these essential requirements:
· (Act 15:29) to keep away from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from anything strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you avoid these things, you will prosper. Goodbye."

Please tell me… Where the Holy Spirit… Instructed the “NT Gentile Church”… “To Worship… on the Sabbath?” “Chapter & Verse… Please?” He did Not! How then can you say something that the Scripture… does not say? Why then do you start your… ‘own religion’ and say that Sabbath is required for true worship?

· (Acts 21:25) As for the gentiles who have become believers, we have sent a letter with our judgment that they should keep away from food that has been sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals, and from sexual immorality."

Answer… The HOLY SPIRIT… Never DID! IF… the day of worship… should be the Sabbath… WHY THEN… did the HOLY SPIRIT… Not Say SO? ? ? Are there Any Other…NT letters… Indicating that… “The SABBATH”… was the correct day of Worship? ? ? Absolutely NOT! I will share with you… the words of the Holy Spirit… through 'Paul to Peter'!

· (Galatians 2:11-to-16) But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly wrong.
· (Gal 2:12) For until some men came from James, he was in the habit of eating with the gentiles, but after they came he drew back and would not associate himself with them, being afraid of the circumcision party.
· (Gal 2:13) The other Jews also joined him in this hypocrisy, to the extent that even Barnabas was caught up in their hypocrisy.
· (Gal 2:14) But when I saw that… they were not acting consistently with the truth of the gospel, I told Peter in front of everyone, "Though you are a Jew, you live like a gentile and not like a Jew. So how can you insist that the gentiles must live like Jews?"
· (Gal 2:15) We ourselves are Jews by birth, and not gentile sinners,
· (Gal 2:16) yet we know that a person is not justified by the works of the law but by the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. We, too, have believed in Christ Jesus so that we might be justified by the faith of Christ and not by the works of the law, for no human being will be justified by the works of the law.

By Saying and Practicing that… ‘The Sabbath” is the day of Worship… YOU... do no different than Peter did here in these above verses! Gentiles… were Never told… to Worship on… “The Sabbath!”
Here are the... references to 'The Leap Year Calculations'... to show that The Sabbath of the Roman calendar … “IS NOT”… the Sabbath given to the Nation Israel by GOD Almighty! The Jewish Calendar has 360 days, the Roman Calendar has 365 plus... Leap Year!



Once again… “Christ Jesus”… Said…

· (John 4:20-to-24) Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain. But you Jews say that the place where people should worship is in Jerusalem."
· (John 4:21) Jesus said to her, "Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when you Samaritans will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
· (John 4:22) You don't know what you're worshiping. We know what we're worshiping, for salvation comes from the Jews.
· (John 4:23) Yet the hour is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Indeed, the Father is looking for people like that to worship him.
· (John 4:24) God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

The Only True Worship… of GOD… has to be done in… Spirit and In Truth! NO day of the Week can bring that… ABOUT!

· (Colossians 2:16-17) Therefore, let no one judge you in matters of food and drink or with respect to a festival, a new moon, or a Sabbath day. (Col 2:17) These are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to Christ.

“If”… You practice keeping the Sabbath… “Then”…are YOU… NOT “Also Required”… To keep 'The Passover' as cammanded by the Word... "To keep the Sabbath"? Of course, you are! But do you... celebrate the Passover as required by the Word of God? How then do you Not keep the Passover and then keep the Sabbath?
And yet… “The Passover”… is just a ‘Word Picture’… of the Christ Jesus, The Messiah! And so is the Sabbath rest we who are ‘Born Again’… have in the “Finished Work of Christ!”

· (1Corinthains 5:7) Get rid of the old yeast so that you may be a new batch of dough, since you are to be free from yeast. For Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed.

Simple Review of Points:

1. True Worship is done in Spirit and in Truth.
2. The Sabbath was given to The NATION… Israel… and NOT To Gentiles!
3. This Saturday of the Roman calendar… IS NOT… the Sabbath of Creation… due to Leap Year Calculations.
4. The LAW of GOD… and was given to Israel… and it made no one perfect. James 2:10!
5. Salvation is by Grace Alone… = Titus 3:5, = Ephesians 2:2-9-10, = Ephesians 1:7-to-14, = Romans 8:9, = Romans 11:6, = 1Corinthains 12:13 = and More!
6. NO… NT book or writings indicate that… The Sabbath was to be the day of Worship for the Gentiles!
7. NO Jew alive today can prove his Jewish Heritage. The records were destroyed during the Jerusalem Destruction, 70/73 AD!
8. The Apostles wrote instructing the Gentiles about Other Matters… not about which day to Worship! [i.e.] The day of worship is Not Important!
9. Last but not least… Do YOU say that Worship done on the Sabbath… is more important than… Worship done on Any Other Day?
10. "No matter what you say, it's your actions that speak for you."

Do those... "Real Born Again Christians"… “Who must... work on Saturdays = what YOU call the Sabbath”… Doctors, Nurses, Factory Workers, Power Plants, and OTHER Occupations…
….Miss OUT on True Real Worship… because THEY have to work… on The Sabbath? ? ? “NOT!”

Please Open The Scriptures… and Show ME… Verses to prove you must… ‘Sabbath Worship’?
(Ephesians 5:10) Proving what is acceptable to the Lord.
