Jokers Galore This Fourth

Joker2

If you are playing cards and your opponent has a joker then he can take you out. That is the problem in America on this Fourth. There are far too many jokers that have the ability to deeply harm us.

There are socialists who think government can solve all of our problems. Obama has opened our borders to concoct a dependent Democrat Party voting bloc which also lets terrorists, drug runners and sex-traffickers in. It is an illegal invasion of massive proportions. Obama has paved the way for a nuclear Iran. Obama is printing money which sets us up for a recession or worse. The donor class controls republicans so thoroughly that republicans signed on to Obama’s Iran deal just so Boeing and other corporations could make sales to Iran. Our power grid is vulnerable to what is known as a nuclear high-altitude electromagnetic pulse. 9/11 happened. Systematic terrorism is here and now in Orlando, San Bernardino, Fort Hood, Boston and elsewhere. Our Freedom of Religion is under assault by rabid atheists. Our centuries old Second Amendment rights are under assault by deceived and naïve do-gooders. Republicans are so scared of the media that they are now active case studies for cowardice. Men who sleep with other men (less than 3% of the population) have undermined the most basic building block of society called marriage. Obama’s policies have resulted in 95 million able-bodied people out of the work force. Obama has spent more money than all previous presidents combined. There are 3000 dead Americans daily in the womb through abortion. Space does not permit a thorough accounting.

Marie in the movie Bourne Identity says it best, “nobody does the right thing.”

All that to say this. We turned our backs on God in the sixties and so he says this in Deuteronomy 28:20, “The Lord will send upon you curses, confusion, and rebuke, in all you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken Me.”

This is a statement to our culture.

Read Deuteronomy chapter 28 for yourself. Have you ever taken the time to read the Old Testament? The pattern is as predictable as the sun coming up every day. God blesses a people, they start to think that they are something great and that it is all done in their own strength, so they turn to their own devices in some sort of autonomous humanistic mode and eventually God has to come along and apply divine justice because the evil has piled up.

The evil is piling up.

Earlier in Deuteronomy 28 God says this, “Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the Lord your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the Lord your God.”

This statement above is exactly and precisely what has made America the greatest nation in the history of civilization. It is not because we are a great people, but because God helped our Founders institute a great system. But liberalism deceives you day in and day out and tells you otherwise.

Yes… I know… we have to have separation of church and state. Except that this statement is not in our constitution. Christianity should influence the state just like it so thoroughly did in our Founding.

If we observe the rise and fall of the great civilizations of the past it becomes obvious that America is a whisper and an idea of fragile composition. Will we return to our heritage or continue to stagger into the current, liberal, “evolving” dystopia?

Obama is a Wicked and Worthless Leader

This article ran at the Visalia Times Delta on June 8th, 2016.

Obama is a Wicked and Worthless Leader

Someone needs to finally pronounce it! This is not about race. It has always been about virtue. This is a statement to our culture.

Do we have any idea how wicked it is to expose women and young girls to potentially mentally ill transvestite men or rapists posing as transvestites? What kind of malicious leader would conceive such malfeasance?

Throughout the Old Testament there are narratives like this, “And this king did evil in the sight of the Lord… and this King did what was right in the sight of the Lord.” One passage says that a king, “encouraged moral decline.” That really describes our current reprobates in Washington. It is highly myopic to think that our actions in this life will not be judged by our Creator.

The Bible clearly delineates that pure religion is to look after orphans, widows, the poor and to visit those in prison. Liberalism’s agenda is to advance the imaginary, “civil rights” of the immoral LGBT mob which Obama readily attends to.

Prominent in our Declaration is that all men, “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life….” The most diabolical statement ever uttered by any president in the history of our nation is, “God bless Planned Parenthood.” Rather than bestowing the blessing of life on the American people, Obama says, “God bless” the en masse killing of Americans in the womb. This is pure wickedness in the sight of the Lord who sees everything.

In the movie, Bridge of Spies, the character that Tom Hanks plays says this, “…but what makes us both Americans? Just one thing, one… …the rule book. We call it the Constitution and we agree to the rules and that’s what makes us Americans and it’s all that makes us Americans….” I think there are additional attributes that make us truly American but sticking to this interesting criterion for the moment, has Obama agreed to the rules of the Constitution? Not in the slightest! He just bypassed Congress and decreed that transvestite boys should have access to the very same restrooms that young girls use in schools! He has routinely trashed our Second Amendment right to bear arms by regulations. And he has conducted a frontal assault against,” Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….”

Do we really think it is befitting for a standing president of the United States to attack political opponents using the IRS? What kind of example is it for this mendacious president to deceive the American people about Obamacare, Benghazi, and Iran?

It was God Himself that fashioned marriage. It is nothing but hubris that causes Obama to think he can consult with his children and then reverse thousands of years of proven tradition.

The black rot of modern liberalism deceives us in manifold ways. We live in the greatest country in the history of the world at the grandest time to ever live.  If the American people do not turn back to God and elect moral and decent statesmen then our enemies both within and without will eventually destroy us.

Ultimately we will have to forgive this vile president and our fellow Americans for electing him. When Jesus cursed the fig tree it withered away. May the Lord curse all of the evil that Stanley’s son has cast upon us.

Liberalism is Killing the American Soul

Liberalism is Killing the American Soul

This is in response to Haynes article, “Without LGBT Rights, Religious Freedom Fails.”

Why is liberalism so enamored with homosexuality? First, liberalism adopts an Enlightenment principle that says man is at the center of everything instead of having God at the center so God gives liberals over to very strong delusions. Second, liberals do not want to be held to a moral standard so they are sympathetic to anything opposed to Christianity.

There is a certain foolishness of men that has no regard for the design of God. Mr. Haynes advocacy is the kind of nonsense we get from those who have prestigious degrees but no wisdom because they do not know God.

If homosexuality is equal to one-man-one-woman Holy Matrimony then why are there are there over 30 million deaths due to AIDS – the genesis of which is sodomy? Why does Mr. Haynes advocate such carnage?

What kind of social justice is it to advocate for the, “B,” in LGBT which is bisexuality – the practice of which means that a man sleeps with a man and then he sleeps with a woman thereby giving her all sorts of nasty diseases. Why does Haynes promote disease for women?

The reason why God says homosexuality is a sin is because it is not His design. Why is this so very hard to grasp? The Bible also condemns thievery and drunkenness. My hands are designed for work to help myself and those around me. I can claim all day long that my hands were, “born” to steal from my neighbor but that is a lie. God did not design my hands to steal from others.

Alcohol has many legitimate uses. A glass of wine is nice. Alcohol is a great disinfectant and very useful solvent. But God did not give us our bodies and alcohol for drunkenness. To say that a person was, “born that way,” in regards to misusing alcohol is simply an excuse to sin.

I am not unsympathetic to a person’s struggles with sin. I have my own. My theory is that most men have some sort of fatal flaw that can take them out. The high challenge is in overcoming the flaw and attempting to be numbered among good men.

Trying to find common ground between such opposing worldviews is extremely difficult. Have you noticed that activist homosexuals, rather than living and let live, sue Christian florists, bakers and ministers over grievances? How do we co-exist with such antagonism? Bank robbers and law enforcement do not have compatible interests.

Everyone screams for equality but the hard fact is that equality originates with God. We should look to God to define good and evil and if we let man define right and wrong then the process is flawed because man is subject to error. We cannot claim the equality God affords us and then spurn the rest of His counsel.

The carnage of AIDS and STD’s should prove to liberals that God’s principles regarding the sacredness of sex are a matter of truth. We need religious freedom but we must realize that truth emanates from one true God and there are many false gods.

The Master’s Tale

The Master’s Tale

The God who created everything the eye can behold is a storyteller. In fact much of the Bible is a narrative of God working in and through people’s lives which is no trifling matter.

We are made in God’s image and the concept of story is intrinsic to us which is one reason why men love sports. Sports is an athletic story that is told in a game and unfolds over a season.

The story of some men’s lives are a master’s tale. Who is not impressed with the life of Jackie Robinson, the courage of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the story of Martin Luther King, or the tale of Jessie Owens?

The problem of evil is somewhat explained by the fact that God gives men free choice. So evil men like communist Joseph Stalin, communist Pol Pot, the “Butcher of Uganda” Idi Amin, Hitler and many others smudge the landscape of history and write stories that thoroughly afflict our souls.

Of interest to me is the fact that our Creator and Author of Life saves the most incredible and amazing stories for His exclusive use. He really is the very first cause of all that man can see and behold. He really did part the Red Sea to save His chosen people and to judge those who would not repent. He really did put Jonah in the stomach of a whale to make some very pertinent points. He really did raise His Son from the dead to redeem those lost in sin.

What is your story? Is your narrative a grand tale? Is your life that of the common man just trying to do what is right which might very well be close to God’s heart? Is your story in need of the Great Editor who desires to redeem you and your life?

As an ambassador for Jesus Christ I am a very tiny part of a far greater story.

It is an altogether true paradox that the more intimately you know and understand God’s story the more enhanced your own story will unfold.

Dont be dumber than the rocks

This ran at the Visalia Times-Delta on Friday, March 25th, 2016.

It is Easter.

Blaise Pascal described the zeitgeist in America today very well, “Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.”

Can we please consider the truth even if only for a brief moment? Jesus is described as the mystery of the ages. When He walked this earth the waves and storms obeyed His command. What kind of person has that power? When people realized who He actually was they would worship Him and He accepted it in stride. Who does that?

One passage tells us that if Jesus’ disciples had failed to praise Him that the rocks would cry out. Amazingly, at the actual moment of Christ’s death, there was an earthquake. Do you know how loud it is at the epicenter of an earthquake? The rocks get incredibly loud!

God has given you an intellect and reasoning abilities. God has afforded you the ability of intellectual honesty. You are entirely capable of researching an enigma.

The Bible is 66 separate books written by 40 different authors over a span of about 1500 years, with an amazingly consistent story line. The focal point of all history is the death and resurrection of Jesus. He was seen by over 500 people after His resurrection.

This is germane: even a minimum amount of due diligence on your part regarding this mystery should yield some startling results.

The answers to many of your larger questions come later. But first things first. The objective truth is that Jesus knows everything there is to know about you. It is high time for you to discover a few things about Him. So, don’t be dumber than a rock!

HE IS RISEN! (no trifling matter) Happy Easter!

Dereliction of Duty

This ran at the Visalia Times Delta on March 3rd, 2016 with the headline, “Reasons why Trumpsters abound”

Commentary

It is not hard to figure out why Trumpsters abound. Republicans have utterly failed to serve their constituents and made an unruly mess of things;

Very little pushback on Obamacare which took over 1/8 of the economy.

No pushback on ruining the definition of marriage.

No pushback on Obama’s diabolical agreement with terrorist Iran.

No pushback on illegal immigration, drug runners, sex-traffickers and terrorists coming across the border.

No defunding of Obamacare.

No pushback on giving terrorist Iran 1.7 billion dollars.

Continual capitulation to the liberal media.

Sleeping with Chamber of Commerce to the detriment of constituent interests.

No push back against Obama on 1st amendment freedom of religion.

Very little push back on Obama’s trashing of 2nd amendment.

Boehner’s backroom deals with Obama.

Pushing the agenda of big donors.

Despising the Tea Party just like Obama.

No pushback on voter fraud or voter ID.

Allowing Obama to take over student loans.

No pushback on Obama’s deficit spending and the failures of socialism.

Pushing stooge-type weak nominees like McCain, Romney and Jeb Bush.

No pushback on Obama leaving Iraq which opened the door for ISIS.

Very little pushback on Obama’s white glove approach to ISIS.

Ineffective pushback on the Benghazi fiasco.

No pushback on the Fast and Furious gun running debacle.

No pushback on media lies and liberal lies.

Continual romance with democratic party operatives like Stephanopoulos and Couric.

No pushback on gutting the military.

Ineffective pushback on women in combat and open homosexuals in military.

Little pushback on democratic moderators at debates.

Inadequate pushback on Obama using the IRS to attack political opponents.

No pushback on the socialist agenda surrounding climate change.

No pushback on Muslim Syrian refugee immigration most of which are young males.

Inadequate pushback against Planned Parenthood.

Considering abortion as settled law.

Very little pushback on Obama’s serial lying about the unemployment rate.

No pushback on forcing business owners to violate their faith.

Sacrificing conservative principles in an effort to appease opposition.

 

So evil wins the day everyday.

Nonetheless Cruz gets my vote.

Some Things are Sacred

 

This ran at the New York Cupid Times on 2/14/16 – Ü

This is a statement to our culture.

It is Valentine’s Day.

In the beginning… it is not good for man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him… God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth (excerpts of Genesis 1-3).

Courtship, love, romance, and marriage – all of it is created by God. And when it is done correctly, according to His will and purpose the great beauty of His grand design plays out in the theatre of our lives.

He even made the, “lesser lights” otherwise known as the moon and stars as a romantic backdrop.

Roses are the undisputed queen of Valentine’s day, but have you noticed the exquisite beauty of the rose’s much better looking sister, the tulip? Both are created by God to enchant you on days like today.

Everything God does is lavish which is why He designed us to enjoy strawberries and chocolate.

Much of America loves football because of the design of the game. But along with the design there has to be rules and then judges to enforce the rules. Without the rules and something to enforce the rules the game would quickly degenerate into chaos and we would turn the channel in disgust. When the design is executed within the rules and guidelines then we have the beauty of the game that so many enjoy.

And this is precisely what many in our culture miss when it comes to spiritual matters. God is the designer of all that we can see but along with the design there has to be rules and guidelines. Disease has always been connected to immorality. Some disease is God’s warning to people to stay within the design and the guidelines that he laid out.

We are made in God’s image so we are religious right down to our very core – whether we perceive it or not.

So, the truth will set you free. Enjoy the weekend but keep yourself safe, stay within God’s design and recognize that some things are sacred.
