Seeking to Destroy Others. Enough is Enough.


Why is it those with different political views are looking to destroy people’s lives, just to score political points?

Roseanne was cancelled recently after she said posted tweet. Although it was bad, it was not really as horrible as people are making it out to be. Something I blogged about a few days ago. Now the right is going after Samantha Bee for saying something stupid as well, wanting her to be cancelled. As well, to make a point about the left’s hypocrisy.

Both sides are willing to destroy the lives of individuals, who just simply said something really stupid. All to score political points for their own side. And it’s not just something that affect the individual who says something stupid. It also affects those who work alongside them. From their fellow actors and actresses, to the cameraman and janitors, who find themselves losing their job and struggling to feed their families when the show is shut down and their services are no longer needed.

Why are people looking to destroy others lives just to get one up on the other? I’m doubtful there are many people who have not said anything in their past that they regret. And I doubt they won’t ever do it again. I’m guilty of it and I probably will do it again in the future. As humans, we say and do stupid things from time to time, things that we regret saying. We shouldn’t have our jobs threatened and lose our ability to support our families, due to that rare occasions mess up.

Yet, all these people are jumping over each other just the score political points for their own side. Sacrificing other people to do so. What has our society become? How is anyone okay with this?

Enough is enough…..

Let Our Works Speak To The Unbelievers


As a Christian, I know what it is like to be attack by non believes. I had some very hateful things said about me and what I believe. I have even had people attack my family for simply being a Christian and not necessarily anything I specifically believe. It does come with the territory.

However, it would seem that many who are calling themselves a Christian, feel that it is perfectly acceptable to behave just as the non believers who are attacking them do. Saying hateful in Vile thing in return. Some may even say it to a non-believer who is behaving civilized with them, because of what others have done to them previously.

This is not how Christians are to act. We are to “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:22) and we are not doing that when we are calling people names, launching personal attacks, being prideful, arrogant or putting others down.

One of the greatest Commandments we have is to love our neighbor. And really, how can we say we love our neighbor when are treating the non-believer so horribly? When our actions make it look like we hate them?

Sure, the non-believer may be hateful and vile towards us in his or her attempt to destroy us. However, the Bible does not tell is to follow all the rules, except when attacked by a atheist or muslim who is trying to hurt our feelings. We are to always be humble, patience, meekness, not prideful, be gentle with perfect courtesy toward all people. Because, we are to , “Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against us as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.” (1 Peter 2:12)

We are to use their attempts to destroy us, to being them to the Lord. Just as David did when his enemies had been spreading lies,and being deceitful. In the end, we need to trust God, “When you’re under attack, take refuge in the Lord as your righteous defender.” (Psalm 5:1-7)

Sadly, when many Christians are confronted on their unchristian like behavior/actions. I have found that very few change what they are doing. Either giving excuses as to why they can do what they are doing, ignoring the Bible. Or they claim I am not a Christian, because to them, a Christian does not call out other Christians for what they are doing. Therefore, because they deem me as not a christian, they feel that it gives them an excuse to continue with the unchristian-like behavior. No I’m completely unaware of any Scripture that says that, even if somebody is not Christian they can not point out unchristian-like behaviors and actions.

In many ways, I understand such people. When I was a new Christian, I had a hard time with this. I would fight back giving just as much if not more then what I was given. I said some horrible things to people as a reaction to what they are sub to me. I had a hard time being kind to those who are not doing so with me. It’s just taking me a long time to get where I am today. Even after all these years, I still find that I must pull myself aside and remind myself of how I should interact with others, others who I’m not exactly the nicest people towards me.

We must remember that our works are an indication of our faith. If we don’t act like we believe what we profess to believe, then why would a non-believer even take a serious? Why would they even consider what we have to say?

We must also ask ourselves, our we bringing glory to God with the things we say and do? Is our behaviors and actions resulting in a seed being planted? Or is wedge being driven in? Which do you think is more productive?

Epic SJW gender bull.


There was a time people were offended when some woman breastfed in the sight of others. Some people thought it was sick and disgusting, but others for some reason thought it was a sexual act. And of course both women and men had to point out that it was natural and necessary for the child

Now here comes the social justice warriors (SJW) on their Crusade to tell people how to live and think. Not to mention just plain old reveal their stupidity to the world and remind the rest of us why exactly we don’t like SJW’s again.
Jessica Martucci had released this study in Pediatrics, saying that it is “ethically inappropriate”  as it is reinforces gender roles. Thus they do not want medical organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics to call breastfeeding natural.
When I first heard about this I thought it had to be satire. Boy was I wrong, this was actually was real and it was meant to be to be taken serious.
With that said, there just so many things to say about this. The first thing I must do is ask why? It’s like this women was looking for a issue to complain about because all the SJW bull had been debunked like the rape culture, gender pay gap, etc… So she decided to invent a new issue. A issue nobody was ever even complaining about, but now I suspect I we will ad nauseam.
Next, I do find it odd, because what’s the one thing we hear from SJW trying to normalize a mental illness? That gender is different from sex. Now here this SJW destroying that. Showing that previous arguments where the bull we thought it was.

I also must ask, if we we can’t call something that is natural, natural. Then what are we to call it?

Seriously,  Martucci wants us to ignore reality, as to not offend someone believes there’s something that they are not. Appeasing their mental illness. What’s next? not installing the toilet in new homes because it might offend somebody who believes they are a cat?

Abortion


Human history is riddled with a lot of disgusting and disturbing Acts. With Some of our worst moments having taken place when one group of humans had declared that others are not human, or are some kind of subset of humans. A kind of less developed human being.

Millions of Jews had been sent to the gas chamber. As they had been seen as Untermensch, a term that was used to describe inferior people.

Even slaves had been seen as not being human. Thus, it was fine to do what you wanted to with them.

However, it seems we have not learned from our past. Where millions of our most innocent have been killed because others have deemed them not to be human. Or are said to be a less-developed human.

At least not until they pass through the vagina, as if the vagina is a magical barrier that turns them into a Human Being.

I’m talking about the millions of babies that have been routed out of their mother’s in what is called an abortion. A word that fails to really describe the genocide that is taking place. After all if you described it as crushing skulls or sucking brains out, it could have an effect of humanizing the unborn baby’s. So, other words are used in their place called euphemisms.

Euphemisms are used in order to downplay the barbarism of this genocide. Where words such as abortion and terminating a pregnant are used. They won’t even call it a baby. Instead, they choose to call it a clump of cells, a parasite or a zygote in order to dehumanize the innocent life within.

Why do you think the same people who use such Euphemisms don’t ask pregnant women, at lest women who have are going to have their babies such things as, “Are you going to find out if your zigote will be a boy or girl?” instead choosing to use the word “baby.” Never using the words zigote, blastocysts, even calling it parasite or clump of calls.

Chances are you have never heard anyone refer to an unborn child that way, unless there are talking about killing the baby. Then they use such words. Why because its easier to justify ripping the baby out of the womb if you no longer think of it as a human.

Showing that it is only a human when its wanted, and when it’s not wanted they disconnect it in their minds from humanity. Justifying it by dehumanizing the life and down playing what is done to extinguish that life.

It’s discussing how people feel that it’s ok to take a human life because it’s an inconvenience for them. No one has the right to snuff out the most innocent of us. A person right not to be inconvenienced does not trump the right for that individual human being to live.

To use a common pro-baby killer Euphemism, It is sad to think that the embryo of an eagle is seen as more valuable then that of a human, where terminating the eagle embryo will result in a heavy fine and or prison time. But a human embryo can’t get that same protection.

With this said, we on the side of saving lives must put forth plans and programs that, while they don’t incentivize people to pop out babies for some kind of reword or hand out, we do need to come up with ideas to give mothers reasons to keep the children, while setting up programs to better take care of the children who are given up. And to adopt more children, giving them a home with a loving family.

Because in the fight to save lives, many have forgotten that if you win, there is still a life that needs to be taken care of once born. And the implications, such as truing over the unconstitutional ruling Raw v. Wade without a plan to care for the many children is careless to say the lest.

This is something that must be discussed now, not later. Not after its over turned, not right before it is. Now!

Dysfunctional Families You’re Not The First, But God Can Help.


The Bible has a lot to say about families, it even mentions the ideal family.

Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. (1 Peter 3:8)

This seems simple, but a lot of families have issues. Even the most close families will have times where they find themselves having issues they must overcome. And the Bible is full of stories where families are challenged with issues. Genesis 3 is the first known case in the Bible where both the husband and the wife disobey God, only later to have one of their children kill another one of their children (Genesis 4:8).

A person’s family can challenge them in every way. Yet we cannot just simply abandon, or give up when times are hard. A family needs to learn to stick together, and meet the challenge, working together to get through the issue.

2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:2-4).

12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him (James 1:12)

Even when we have lots of issues with a family member we cannot just abandon them, or stop taking care of them. The Bible does not have anything good to say about such a person who does.

8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever (1 Timothy 5:8).

True, it is not always easy. If you have a child who has become addicted to drugs, and takes money out of his own mother’s purse. It can be hard to trust that child. And yes… Sometimes denying that child something, you are helping him.

However, if he is hungry, you still must feed him/her. If they are sad you must still be there for them. Ultimately you are trying to build them up in the Lord (Romans 15:1) when you do this. And if you trust God, he can make your family stronger and better (Isaiah 40:31).

You must also be ready to forgive that family member when they have turned from their sin. Remember what it says in Matthew 6:14 – 14 “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”

Trust God. Let him guide you. Live as God wants you to live.

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do (James 1:22-25)

And remember, you are not the first or only dysfunctional family. And God will not abandon you. You however must be willing to trust God in all things.

When to Forgive.


Did you know that forgiveness is yet another way that we Christian witness to others? It’s highly effective, and can dramatically change lives and people’s perceptions. Think Jesus on the cross, forgiving our sins.

Forgiveness is an important aspect for Christians. We find the bible talks a lot about forgiveness with passages like.

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: (Luke 6:36-37 KJV)

Sadly, many people really don’t understand Christian forgiveness.  This includes, many fellow brothers in Christ. With many who view it as something where we are to forgive unconditionally no matter what. When in reality it has been our secular world today, that has shaped the biblical forgiveness view. Having us believe  this idea that we are to forgive no matter what.

Now it is true, we are to forgive, but it is not meant to be a blind forgiveness, where we forgive a person who sins. Instead, we are to forgive when they turn their back on the sin. Then we are to forgive without setting our own conditions for that forgiveness.

Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him: and if he repent, forgive him.” (Luke 17:3 KJV) 

Forgiveness is a powerful thing. It can and does change lives, but if a person who has little to no interest in stopping his sin, then what kind of messages do you send them when you forgive a person who will just keep doing what he, or she is doing?

In an indirect way, we may actually be helping the sinner continue. Especially when they know, they can sin and be forgiven. Making them feel better about their sinning.  Yet, if we give our forgiveness to them only when they turn their back on that sin, then they don’t get to feel good about what they are doing. And so they are ready for our  forgiveness.

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 10-11 KJV)

So keep this in mind, forgive not because they say they simply say “sorry,” but as a result of the actual desire/action for repentance.

Men how about you doing your part when it comes to the Bible?


There is some debate over the relationship that men and women have biblically. Some say that men and women need to submit to each other as they are equal, others say that women must be subservient obaying their husbands every command, that is unless it is to sin. And must do the housework, cooking, cleaning, etc. usually, these men are opposed to women getting jobs outside the house.

Now this posting is not going to be on the topic of who is right, biblically. Although that does seem like a good post for the future. Instead, this post is going to be on the topic of something I observed, particularly about the men who biblical view is that only women submit to their husbands and that the wife should stay at home doing all the housework. And what I have observed is something that seems to be consistent with the vast majority of these kind of man. And that is that many if not most seem to be more in love with what the wife does for them. Then they are with their wife.

I remember one particular instance where I watched as this man who almost always preached the same thing over and over, which was that women need to be subservient to their husbands. And how the wives need to do all the housework. There seem to be almost nothing in between. And when I watched as he made these YouTube videos . I noticed in many of them his wife would be in the background doing housework and this was very revealing. Because this one tells me that he was getting to sit down and do something he enjoys why his wife was working. So instead of showing his wife that he loves her and helping her out around the house so that when the bowl done. They can sit down and do it. They want. He decided to let her do the work by. He got to sit and relax doing what he wanted.

So let me ask my readers something… Is that man showing his wife that he loves her, while he is sitting down making YouTube videos or perhaps even watching television, all the while his wife is laboring away taking care of their children and doing housework? It doesn’t sound like he loves her very much.

I think a man who loves his wife would actually assist his wife when it comes to housework. Sure, he might come home from work and relax for a little while. But after that he needs to get off his lazy butt and help his wife, showing her with his actions that he loves her. And not just loving what she does for him.

Remember the story the good Samaritan found in the Bible? All these different men walked around this man who needed help, who was laying in the road and they did nothing. But then here comes a good Samaritan who helped this man and brought to a Inn helped dress his wounds and then paid a man to care for while he was gone. The story shows how one person’s actions showed that he truly loves his neighbor. So why is it that many of these men who’s biblical view is that women should submit to their husbands and do all the housework, won’t even get off their butts for their wives to help them?

Helping one’s wife around the house takes a lot less effort than it would be to help somebody on the side of the road who requires assistance. Yet these men are unwilling to lift a finger for their own wives. So I asked again… Are they showing their wives that they love them when they’re not willing to help them around the house?

Men when it comes to your wives, the Bible makes it clear. You are to love your wife. But you’re not doing that. If you’re not willing to help your wife. She’s not just their to do what you want her to do. She is not your servant or slave. She is your wife. You need to love your wife and if you’re not willing to do anything that would show her that you love her, all the while you are demanding that she do what the Bible says. You’re a hypocrite. And you are not deserving of such a great woman.

So do your part, and love your wife…
