Dr. Ben Carson: From my devotional. (God is a nice guy).

As I’ve done in the past I like to share from my devotional. A few of them have been from Dr. Ben Carson and have always been inspirational, thought provoking to me causing me to ponder my own walk and to look inside and helpful in tough and dark time’s in my walk. This devotional was given to me by my father years ago, way before Ben Carson became a public figure or Presidential candidate . Sharing these posts from him I think would help to get to know him apart from the “Lame Stream Media’s” agenda, spin and other political sources and references and share a rare look at the man’s heart and faith if you’v never had the pleasure before.

I would be very comfortable with this man running the country along with my favorites of the Republican candidates, Fiorina, and of course love Ted Cruz. Personally I think both Carson and Cruz are godly, faithful men and we could do a lot worse with theses guy’s in charge. They both have a clear record on what they believe and stand for. Florina would be a good leader too, I voted for here when she ran in California and I think she is faithful and her sharing of her faith has been truthful though I do not agree with her on her comment’s last night on the talk show when she said ” a Muslim shouldn’t be prevented from serving as president “ I think that was a “Politically Correct” answer.

Though I may agree with most of what Trump say’s in regard to immigration, the border and the way he has forced the conversation to the front of issues we are facing today that need to be dealt with. I think we’v had enough of a prideful arrogant, divisive leader for quite sometime. No doubt he’s a good business man and if he were to get elected I think it would be a sad commentary on our nation, showing the world we are hateful, childish, arrogant, a generation of me, me, me and screw the rest of you. I respect and agree with what Scott Walker did and said yesterday another godly man! “I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field,” Walker said. “… I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner.”  That’s my two cents anyway, moving on to the devotional. BTW on subject of politics’s one of the most excellent tool’s I use fro none bias look at politicians  is VoteSmart.org , give it a try.

“The Love of the Father” Author: Dr. Ben Carson.

“ABOUT my faith in God, I want to express a few heartfelt thoughts that may sound simplistic or irreverent. As I continue to develop my relationship with him , I have discovered that God is a nice guy.

 I confess that while growing up, I had bought into the concept of God as a stern individual who busily jots down in a book every mistake we make, so that on Judgment Day he can call us up and point to each one, saying “Why did you do this? I know you did this,” and then divulge to everybody present the unpraiseworthy actions of our lives.

 I have slowly matured, and have experienced God’s help in many crises. I have come to realize the God does not want to punish us but, rather, to fulfill our lives. God created us, loves us, and want’s to help us to realize our potential so that we can be useful to others.

 The relationship that God wants with me became particularly clear to me after Candy and I had children of out own. I realized how much I love my sons and how much I want for them. Of course I want them to be successful, and want to give them everything I can to make them happy. And I realized that God loves me even more than I love my own children.

 I cannot give my children everything, but I try to arrange their environment so that they can learn to stand on their own feet, to respect others and to become valuable citizens. 

 If I lavish everything on them, they will never reach those goals, but as long as my children know that I love them- that I will stand behind them and do everything within my power to assure their success in life, I feel that I have done what I can for them. They will develop confidence in my love for them and will know that I only want good for them.

 As I have considered my relationship with my sons, it makes it clear to me the relationship that God wants with me and with all the children he has created in the world.” 

Been there, through that and still maturing. Though I don’t have children of my own I have nephews and nieces. I’m 50 something and about 22 years old as a Christian,( still young and growing) I tried and and I can only hope and pray what I’ve shared with them when they where young and coming up would be pleasing in your eyes Lord and help them some how on their journey and relationship with you.

Again I wouldn’t mind having a man with a heart and knowledge like this running the show for a while, especially after what we’ve been through these past seven years and opposed to the “front runner” now. Wouldn’t it be a nice change?

God bless America and you!

Are Christians Making Kim Davis Their New Idol?

What a well written thought provoking post! A must read article especially for Christians, take the time and rounder it awhile Christian. I totally agree with everything written, though I did post thing in favor of her. I too didn’t feel right about it, something was off. Was probably the Holy Spirit nudging me. Once again take the time for this one.

Exposing Modern Mugwumps

My comments: It’s running 5 to 1 in agreement with my article on another website. I am truly appalled at what Kim Davis, Huckabee, and Staver have done, and they all call themselves Christians. The 5 to 1 means the believers in Christ DO HAVE GREAT DISCERNMENT! Who will Kim Davis ever win to Christ? Certainly NOT any homosexuals, she has made them hate us. And in staying in her job, rather than resigning, she doesn’t remember the verses, BE YE SEPARATE, WHAT DOES THE LIGHT HAVE TO DO WITH DARKNESS, COME OUT OF HER, We are to be the salt and light…and when we point fingers at someone and scream SINNER, there are 3 fingers pointing back at us. Of course she probably doesn’t want to give up the 80K she’s allegedly making either. 

I was never a Michele Bachman fan, but I give a lot of credit to…

He came for the common folk.

I wanted to share my devotional read for this morning with you. No one is more for, understands, relates to the common man better then Jesus.

The great physician and friend

“Why have people been so attracted to Jesus down through the centuries? The bible answers that question in a simple phrase, “We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). As you look at the special relationship Jesus had with so many people, you must be convinced that Jesus is on the side of common people. Anybody who was heart, sick, mistreated, lonely, disenfranchised or condemned-people like you and me-where the ones Jesus came to help.

Mathew wrote, ” when the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your eat with tax collectors and sinners”? On hearing this, Jesus said, ” It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick” ( Matthew 9:11-12). In essence, Jesus was saying, “My job hear on earth is to get sinners back to God, not to worry about the good people.”

  Jesus does not present himself to us as ” holier then though”, but rather as a friend. He said, ” I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15).

We are not second class citizens. The bible says we are part of God’s family. Hebrews 4 records that Jesus, who is now in heaven, intercedes for us that He understands our weaknesses. We are encouraged to “approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). AUTHOR: Jim Conway

The passage of the day, that goes with this reading is Hebrews 4:14-16. I read the whole chapter for context and the beginning starts with “Therefor”. I was taught when I see “therefor” I have to read before the verse to see what “therefor” is there for. I started in Hebrews 3:12-19 and then Hebrews 4:1-16.

Hope you enjoyed and got blessed like I did. NO politician, no man or woman or anything else understands or has your back like Jesus does.

God bless America and you.10258766_547987208655516_2510133947547482093_n

Midterms: What Christians should be doing before, after and during.

Was reading this morning from my copy of Decision Magazine and found some good articles on it but unfortunately not all articles are included on the website that are in the magazine unless you subscribe. You can also like it on FB.

I do it but not nearly enough as I should as I suspect is the case with many, unfortunately. Honestly I have a real hard time doing it for Obama but I do. My personal opinion is we have the government and administration we do because we don’t and at the same time God has given us what we really wanted as a society, because Christian have been lazy and or fallen asleep and that has led to the God hating progressive take over of our country. Look at all the churches afraid to preach the truth for fear of the government or afraid of loosing their mega congregations. Preaching what the world teaches because it’s easy on the ears and doesn’t require much. (Oops, sorry that’s a whole other post.)Then again with America missing from the global seen a lot of what’s going on wouldn’t have been possible.

Never the less we are Commanded to do it. Check these articles out.

“Our nation was founded by men who believed in prayer. When our government was being formed, Benjamin Franklin addressed the chairman of the Constitutional Convention meeting at Philadelphia in 1787, saying, “I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live the more convincing proofs I see of this truth: that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, it is probable that an empire cannot rise without His aid.” read more, Turning the Tide of History

“The president recently asked for prayer as he faces the complex and dangerous challenges of leading our country in such tumultuous times.

His request was a pointed reminder to me that I should be praying for our president and our leaders every day—not to get something from them—but simply in obedience to the Scriptures. I personally haven’t prayed the way I should, and I’m sure that’s the case for some of you as well.

We know from Scripture that God can turn the hearts of kings (Proverbs 21:1). That means that we should be praying for God’s will to be done and for our leaders to seek God and listen to Him. We should pray that they would be surrounded by godly counsel and, most important, that our leadership would personally know God and the salvation found through faith in Jesus Christ alone.” Read more, Franklin Graham: ‘Praying for Those in Authority is a Biblical Command’

“If you’ve ever struggled to pray for government leaders with whom you strongly disagree, imagine being an evangelical congressman or senator on the front lines in Washington, called by God to hit your knees on behalf of fellow lawmakers who blatantly reject the biblical values you treasure.

Or, like Mike Huckabee, being a former presidential candidate-turned-television news commentator who is sometimes compelled to vigorously confront the man who was elected to the nation’s top office.

Huckabee sees no conflict in prayer and confrontation, and he finds no wiggle room in the biblical mandate to pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-4).

“Praying for them is to recognize that God can hit a straight lick with a crooked stick,” said Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who works for Fox News and is contemplating a 2016 presidential run.

“But praying for someone doesn’t require me to agree with them or to be silent when I feel the need to rebuke. As I raised my children, I prayed for each of them by name daily, but that never stopped me from disciplining them. It’s because I do pray that I feel free to speak truth to power.”

Praying for political foes is a way of Washington life for Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), a devoted believer and former federal prosecutor who serves as an ace interrogator for the House Committee on Ethics, Oversight and Government Reform.” Read more, Praying For Other Leaders Who Oppose Your Beliefs

“America is in trouble. From sea to shining sea we are witnessing the devolution of a nation. The United States is quickly becoming the divided states. Disunity and conflict abound. Family breakdown, the immigration crisis, the threat of terrorism, an abiding racial divide and political dysfunction all point to a deeper problem.

Regardless of which side of the political aisle you sit on, it is clear: Things are unraveling at warp speed. Like never before, we must pray for our nation and her leaders.”

On Our Knees

As Christians, we must ask: Are we going to sit by and watch our culture fall apart and our families disintegrate? Or are we going to do something to help turn America to God?

The future of our culture is in the hands of Christians because the cause of our cultural demise is innately spiritual. And if a problem is spiritual, its cure must be spiritual as well. If we Christians are going to help turn our nation to God, we must fall on our knees and our faces before God and pray. We must not only talk about prayer, but pray. Not only agree on the importance of prayer, but pray. Not only preach on the power of prayer, but pray. As Billy Graham once said, “To get our nation on its feet, we must get on our knees.”

Second Chronicles 7:14 contains an awesome promise: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” In this hallmark passage, God calls a nation to pray.” Read more, ‘If My People’

“I learned to depend on the Lord early in my childhood. During those turbulent years, my mother held our little family together. Though she wasn’t a Christian at the time, she knew she needed all the help she could get as she raised her children. So she sent my brother and me to church every Sunday, and it was there that I was introduced to Jesus Christ and invited Him into my heart.

As I learned how to pray and began speaking to the Lord, I sensed His love and care for me. Amid the chaos of our disintegrating family, this little girl found hope and comfort in Jesus. I’ve been praying and relying on Him ever since.”

“The Lord Jesus demonstrated the significance of prayer. He “often withdrew to lonely places and prayed” (Luke 5:16). He “went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God” (Luke 6:12). He even told His disciples the parable about justice for the persistent widow “to show them that they should always pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1).

If Christians would pray as Jesus instructed us, it would change our lives—and the course of history. Our nation’s leaders are openly asking for prayer from the public. As a matter of fact, members of both houses of Congress met recently in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda for a time of prayer and reconciliation. In the midst of our tumultuous times, God may be preparing hearts for a new openness to seeking Him through the lifeline of prayer.” Read more, Calling People to Their Knees

Hope you pray and hope you vote. God bless America and you.

For the Christian.

The “State of the Union” 2014.

The “State of the Union” is, we are morally, spiritually, financially bankrupt. We are divided like no other time in history except before the civil war. We have a corrupt racists, ante America, ante American citizen administration in most all branches of government complements of a lying, corrupt, pro islam ante Christian, ante constitution president.

Any person with a ounce of common sense that has been paying attention to what has happened to America the last 5 years, any true Conservative, Tea Party patriot would not disagree with me here.

So, I guess this for the 40% of Americans that still support Mr. Obama and the G.O.P. elitist, establishment politicians that are not much different then the progressive, liberal, democrats.

I’ve been working on this post for a week or so. Every time I get online to work on it though there is just so many story’s about Obama and his administration and the destruction of this country, attacks on American citizens and any one that dares to go against him. I’m kind of active on the Social Media sites trying to pass along news that the “Lame Stream Media” refuses to repot on.

I was going to title it Obama was elected because he was black and will not be Impeached for the same reason, I’ll get to that latter. This will probably be a long post or maybe two post. I hope you will take the time to research on your own.

To first understand what has happened you first need to understand progressivism. Obama is the poster child for progressivism. They have been at “The fundamental Chang of America” for about a hundred years and Obama has just put their agenda into hyper speed. They know once America wakes up, see’s them for what they really are and doing their time is short. Just like the devil as his time grows closer too. Because if you look, you’ll be able to see who’s really behind the progressive movement from a Christians prospective any ways.

Let’s start here. It a lengthy read as most will be but worth the time! From the Heritage Foundation/research

4. God and religion

“In the founding, God was conceived in one of two ways. Christians and Jews believed in the God of the Bible as the author of liberty but also as the author of the moral law by which human beings are guided toward their duties and, ultimately, toward their happiness. Nonbelievers (Washington called them “mere politicians” in his Farewell Address) thought of God merely as a creative principle or force behind the natural order of things.

Both sides agreed that there is a God of nature who endows men with natural rights and assigns them duties under the law of nature. Believers added that the God of nature is also the God of the Bible, while secular thinkers denied that God was anything more than the God of nature. Everyone saw liberty as a “sacred cause.”

At least some of the Progressives redefined God as human freedom achieved through the right political organization. Or else God was simply rejected as a myth. For Hegel, whose philosophy strongly influenced the Progressives, “the state is the divine idea as it exists on earth.” John Burgess, a prominent Progressive political scientist, wrote that the purpose of the state is the “perfection of humanity, the civilization of the world; the perfect development of the human reason and its attainment to universal command over individualism; the apotheosis of man” (man becoming God). Progressive-Era theologians like Walter Rauschenbusch redefined Christianity as the social gospel of progress.” Read more here. The Progressive Movement and the Transformation of American Politics

This is most important and easy to see how we ended up where we are today. Like Hitler and the rest, progressives like Obama understand how important the kids and education are towards their agenda. Heard of Common Core?

From RenewAmerica.com  I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith:  a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being…The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of ‘love thy neighbor’ will finally be achieved.” — excerpt from an article by John Dunphy titled “A Religion for a New Age,” appearing in the January/February 1983 issue of The Humanist Magazine.” Read more here. John Dewey:  the father of progressive education

Guess where Progressive Education started. “Late-nineteenth-century Chicago, home of a new university and one of the first settlement houses, Hull House, was unusually receptive to new ideas. It is no surprise, therefore, that it became a major center for the development of progressive education, the ideology that would become a dominant form in American educational thought for much of the twentieth century. The movement had its roots in the thought of many people, but its major founders were Francis Parker and John Dewey, both of whom refined their educational ideas here.” GO figure. Read more here.

Did you know progressives are BIG on Population Control? Wonder why Obama puts up such a fight on the birth control thing? You’ll probably notice in the following links that the environmentalist and that global warming proponents are in cahoots together.

First up from the American Thinker Blog “Slowly but surely, the Obama administration is introducing the general public to the idea that fewer people born translates into health care cost savings. Liberals are so committed to the idea of fewer live births that by issuing conscience-disturbing mandates, Barack Obama, honorary doctor of obstetrics and gynecology, has even found a way to restrain the growth of prolific, pharmaceutical birth control-shunning Catholic families” Read more here. The Liberal Quest for Population Control

“Population control advocates insist that expanded access to abortion is essential to improving the status and health of women throughout the world.

Many of the early abortion advocates and activists were also supporters of eugenics. Margaret Sanger and many of her followers and American Birth Control League Board Members wrote articles and spoke openly of purifying America’s human “breeding stock” and purging America’s “bad strains.” Read more here.

A GREAT article on “Eugenics”. From my friend at The Oil in Your Lamp. “The mentality that lead Germany to accept Hitler’s ‘final solution’ to the ‘Jewish problem’ has never left the minds of those who consider themselves to be the elite within Western Civilization.  It just morphed into another form (this is how evil always operates, and that’s because it cannot survive in the light of day).  Today, this mentality thrives in our society, but then, it is only fitting that it should do so since the Germans got the idea for the Holocaust from the American Eugenics movement.  The only thing that has changed is that, today, they no longer seek to eliminate races, but political ideologies.  Instead of Jews, today, the boogey man is ‘conservatism.’  Both then (the NAZI’s toward the Jews and Americans toward blacks and other minorities) and now (Progressives toward conservatives), ‘science’ was the justification for what can only be defined as evil,” Read more here.

Follow it up with this one. “If you do not know history, and you do not know how to reason, then you cannot recognize the patterns in history when you see them starting to repeat. Instead of being able to see that a principle can manifest in many different ways, you will be prone to looking at the different ways it manifests itself and determine that they have nothing in common with the past. Thus, you will totally miss the principle in lay. This is why, when those who know history look back on it, they see the same patterns repeating over and over again. This is why we are missing the warning signs today.’ Read more here. AGENDAS: Just Replace the ‘Jewish Question’ with the ‘Conservative Question’

Eugenics in the United States. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Malthusianism is one of the most pervasive, if not the dominant response to   the current global political and economic crisis. It derives its name from the   doctrine articulated by English clergyman turned economist, Thomas Malthus in   1798. Malthusianism sees the numerical increase of the human population as the   root cause of natural resource depletion, poverty and social unrest and population   control as the primary solution.

As global problems worsen and policy makers are pressured to find quick solutions,   Malthusianism is resurging in many overt and covert forms today. Many leading   scientific bodies, environmental organizations and United Nations agencies have   been issuing warnings and declarations to the effect that if population growth   in the Third World, which accounts for 95% of current global population growth,   is not controlled quickly, the planet itself is doomed to extinction.” Read more here.

It looks like this post will have to be continued. Oddly enough when I tired to continue the post yesterday and tied to start my computer I was either hacked or my computer crashed. It starts with “Raid Operation”at the end od the log in process it says no boot files found and has a “Mac” user address which is od because I run a windows O/S. I was able once to get to the set up system of the computer and disabled the “Raid Operation” and enable the diagnostic page after that can’t do anything. “Raid Operation” starts again with the same process as mentioned before. Can’t get to safe mode or anything. I’m on a friends computer now and if I have the money payday I’ll take to a computer expert or have to save up to get another one.

Anyways, I hope this post when looking at the big picture you can easily see what is going on and the agenda behind it. When I can get back to it IF, I can get my computer back because that’s where I have all my research and links that I have saved I will share the racism and promotion of it by this administration, the attacks on Americans, the Tea Party from this administration and the G.O.P. The attack and discrimination on Christianity. The failure of it’s foreign policy and the siding with islam and muslims of this administration and the destruction of our relationship with our allies.

This up coming election is so very important. Have we EVER been so divided as a country and American citizens as we have been at the hands of this administration? Look at the progressive agenda, that’s what they are all about. We are at the bottom of the food chain. Only they know what’s good for us and there is definitely no room for dissention only slavery if your are not one of the elect! If we don’t make changes, say good by to the once great America! If you want to know what America will end up looking like just look at Chicago or any state or county where the progressive liberal democrats or the majority.

In the mean time here are some links that I had save on this post for later on. I wasn’t going to use them here but since these are the only ones I have save that I can get to I’ll have to for now in no particular order.
