How the Democrats went off the deep end.

I was thinking the other day, what the heck happened to the dem’s? Then I remembered how it started. It actually started long before this but that will be shared in a later post I’m working on. but for now, just a short thought.

In September we will come up on the 7 year anniversary of the 2012 Democrat Convention in Charlotte SC. Remember it? It’s where the Democrats denied God three times and tried to distance it’s self from Israel.

If it weren’t for the heads of the party and Obama himself stepping in they would have changed their party platform to remove God from it and distance itself from our Allie Israel by denying Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Here’s some reminders and different points of view, my two cents follows. Democrats BOO GOD At Convention

Democrats boo vote to restore ‘God’

Delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte today booed, jeered and shook their fists when the chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, declared that an amendment to the party’s platform that restored a mention of God had been adopted.

The Party That Booed God

Sometime on Wednesday morning, panic set in when the head honchos of Team Obama, who I would argue can’t stand Israel or the God-language either, but who understand sales, marketing and branding; realized what had happened and rushed to rectify the move made by delegates.
That moment of intense stomach distress might possibly have coincided with the moment when distinguished Harvard Law Professor (aka “the Democrats’ brain”) Alan Dershowitz berated the Democratic Party for becoming the first major political party in the history of the U.S. to abandon Israel.
Now panic really set in.
The media reported that Obama himself made desperate calls to change the platform.
He must have realized that without God added back to the platform, his campaign for re-election was dead-before he even stepped on the stage for his acceptance speech Thursday.

Democrats Conventioneers Deny God “Three Times”

This is shocking, but does expose the majority of Democrats and their ideology.  God isn’t that important nor relevant.

It’s more than unfortunate, more than sad, but frightening that we have a political party in this nation openly mocking God.

Dems Quickly Switch to Include “God,” “Jerusalem”

The changes came after Republicans spent the morning criticizing Democrats for removing Jerusalem and God from their platform, which was adopted during the start of the convention on Tuesday. The Republican platform mentions God 12 times.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Wednesday that taking the word “God” out of the Democratic platform proved that the party is “veering further and further away into an extreme wing that Americans don’t recognize.”

Democrats’ Efforts To Reinsert ‘God’ And ‘Jerusalem’ Into Platform Met With Loud Opposition (VIDEO)

A source informed on the deliberations told The Huffington Post that President Obama personally intervened to strengthen the language. Speaking with HuffPost, a senior Obama administration official also confirmed the president’s involvement.

But when Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the convention chairman, came to the podium to ask for the approval of the delegates, those who shouted opposition to the language change were as loud, if not louder, than those who voiced their support.

Encase there is any doubt about their feelings on the issue on this 7th anniversary , yesterday “Democratic Party embraces nonreligious voters, criticizes ‘religious liberty’ in new resolution.”

Democratic Party embraces nonreligious voters, criticizes ‘religious liberty’ in new resolution

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) passed a resolution Saturday praising the values of “religiously unaffiliated” Americans as the “largest religious group within the Democratic Party.”
The resolution, which was unanimously passed at the DNC’s summer meeting on Aug. 24 in San Francisco, Calif., was championed by the Secular Coalition of America, an organization that lobbies on behalf of atheists, agnostics, and humanists on public policy.
The group celebrated the DNC’s move as the first time a major party “embraced American nonbelievers.”
“Religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values,” said the resolution, which adds they should advocate for “rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values.”

What comes to my mind is, Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. What comes to my mind is, Galatians 6:7 Romans 1:24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. Romans 1:24

Think about it. Isn’t it true looking at the Democrat party now? Abortion and all the other crazy things they want for America. For those of you that are into numerology, This being the 7th anniversary, 7 being the number of completion, could this be the end of the party?

Well, that’s my two cents. God bless America and you.

I can’t sleep at night, last night was no exception. But last night in the dark, I found treasure.

Like most night’s I sleep only for a couple hours at a time. Most day’s I’m in constant pain and last night it kept me from getting comfortable enough to sleep. Bla, bla, bla, everyone has problems.

Last night though, it turned out to be very prosperous. Usually when I share a article I post excerpt from it to give you a idea of what’s in it in hopes of getting you to read it.

This time though I’ll just give you the link. Be forewarned though the title is very misleading. When I first saw it I thought Oh great, another celebrity is going to share their infinite wisdom and school us./s Honestly, I didn’t know who she was. Like most conservative I don’t pay much attention to Celeb’s and only know of a few of the big name ones obviously.

Again, don’t let the title fool. Take the time and check it out. Well, maybe I’ll share a bit of the article after all.

“Chrissy Teigen struck a nerve when she tweeted on Monday that she is “not good with” the Bible.

Teigen, a supermodel, is married to singer John Legend, who will portray Jesus Christ in NBC’s forthcoming live rendition of “Jesus Christ Superstar” that airs Sunday. Just before visiting her husband on set, she took to Twitter,” Chrissy Teigen says she’s ‘not good with the Bible’ — Neither am I

Wasn’t that good, simple and just on time? Admittedly I have never come across the author before so I followed the him on twitter and checked out his website and added it to my favorites. While there I came across this gem.

Excerpts from the article, “The prophets are illuminating, yes. But immediately applicable? Not always . . . unless we broaden our view of application and consider the story behind the symbols.

Pressing On in the Dark

In that simple picture of a shoot coming out of a stump, I find hope to press on through dark times. It’s not applicational in that it gives me a task I need to do this week. But it applies to me because it reorients my thinking so that I see myself as part of a bigger story that God is writing, a story of his glory and my good.

Perhaps as you read this, you’re at such a low point that my words carry no hope at all. There’s no return, you say. Maybe you’re in the depths, or facing the end of your life, and you think: This is it. There’s just a stump. No shoot.” Deep Darkness Before Dawn

For me this was just all on time, at the right time, as God always is.

As always God bless America and you.

“THE CHRIST OF PROPHECY”

Fascinating! If you’re a Christian you’ll appreciate this especially if you find yourself doubting your faith a little today and if you’re a nonbeliever well, why? this comes from SCIENCE SPEAKS. This morning I had to go downtown to get some blood work done for a upcoming surgery. I was listen to a sermon on the radio and was just blown away by what I’d heard, I’ve never heard this before. The pastor was talking about the chances of one man fulfilling the prophecies of Christ. I’d heard other sermons like this but not these facts. Check it out.

I’m not going to post the whole chapter, it’s too long but will leave a link after the quoted piece.

CHAPTER 3: “THE CHRIST OF PROPHECY”

“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me – John 5:39.”

“THE WORD “Scriptures” in this passage refers to the Old Testament. Christ is saying that in the Old Testament we will find the prophecies referring to Himself. It is therefore in these prophecies, and their fulfillment, that we may look if we wish to find evidence that Christ is the Messiah, the Son of God, the saviour of mankind, and everything else which was prophesied of Him, and which He claimed to be.

If we find these prophecies to be fulfilled in Christ, we will establish not only that Christ is the Messiah predicted in the Old Testament, but that those prophecies were given by God Himself. For if they were not given by God, no man would have fulfilled any number of them, as will be evident later in this chapter.

In evaluating these prophecies, we shall have to answer this question regarding each prophecy: One man in how many men has fulfilled this prophecy? I realize that some will object to this question, saying that these prophecies were made with respect to Christ, and no other man has, or even can, fulfill them. This, of course, is true when you consider the mass of prophecies regarding Christ, but it is not true of all individual prophecies. It was prophesied, for example, that Christ would be born in Bethlehem; certainly other persons have been born in Bethlehem. It was prophesied that Christ would be crucified; other men have been crucified. I certainly am not trying to be sacrilegious in asking these questions; but I am trying to look at the evidence entirely unbiased, that I may the better give a clear argument.”

“We considered the following eight prophecies:” You can click the link at the end to go into how he breaks down the prophesies, a lot of math. I will share this one though, 6. “And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prized at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord” (Zech. 11:13).

 This is extremely specific. All thirty pieces of silver are not to be returned. They are to be cast down in the house of the Lord, and they are to go to the potter. You will recall that Judas in remorse tried to return the thirty pieces of silver, cut the chief priest would not accept them. So Judas threw them down on the floor of the temple and went and hanged himself. The chief priest then took the money and bought a field of the potter to bury strangers in. Our question is: One man in how many, after receiving a bribe for the betrayal of a friend, had returned the money, had it refused, had thrown it on the floor in the house of the Lord, and then had it used to purchase a field from the potter?

 The students said they doubted if there has ever been another incident involving all of these items, but they agreed on an estimate of one in 100,000. They were very sure that this was conservative. So we use the estimate as 1 in 105.”

Keep in mind these are excerpts from the chapter.

“If these estimates are considered fair, one man in how many men, the world over, will fulfill all eight prophecies? This question can be answered by applying our principles of probability. In other words, by multiplying all of our estimates together, or 1 in 2.8 x 105 x 103 x 102 x 103 x 105 x 103 x 104. This gives 1 in 2.8 x 1028, where 28 means that we have 28 ciphers following the 2.8. Let us simplify and reduce the number by calling it 1 in 1028. Written out this number is 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

 This is the answer to the question: One man in how many men has fulfilled these eight prophecies? But we are really concerned with the answer to the question: What is the chance that any man might have lived from the day of these prophecies down to the present time and have fulfilled all of the eight prophecies? We can answer this question by dividing our 1028 by the total number of people who have lived since the time of these prophecies. The best information available indicates the number to be about 88 billion or 8.8 x 1010.

 To simplify the computation let us call the number 1011. By dividing these two numbers we find that the chance that any man might have lived down to the present time and fulfilled all eight prophecies is 1 in 1017.”

 “Let us try to visualize this chance. If you mark one of ten tickets, and place all of the tickets in a hat, and thoroughly stir them, and then ask a blindfolded man to draw one, his chance of getting the right ticket is one in ten. Suppose that we take 1017 silver dollars and lay them on the face of Texas. They will cover all of the state two feet deep. Now mark one of these silver dollars and stir the whole mass thoroughly, all over the state. Blindfold a man and tell him that he can travel as far s he wishes, but he must pick up one silver dollar and say that this is the right one. What chance would he have of getting the right one? Just the same chance that the prophets would have had of writing these eight prophecies and having them all come true in any one man, from their day to the present time, providing they wrote using their own wisdom.

 Now these prophecies were either given by inspiration of God or the prophets just wrote them as they thought they should be. In such a case the prophets had just one chance in 1017 of having them come true in any man, but they all came true in Christ.

 This means that the fulfillment of these eight prophecies alone proves that God inspired the writing of those prophecies to a definiteness which lacks only one change in 1017 of being absolute.”

One more example from the chapter then check out the link at the end for the whole chapter and the book.

“Suppose we add eight more prophecies to our list, and assume that their chance of fulfillment is the same as the eight just considered. The chance that one man would fulfill all sixteen is 1 x 1028 x 1017 or 1 in 1045.

 Let us try to visualize this as we did before. Take this number of silver dollars. If you make these into a solid ball, you will have a great sphere with a center at the earth, and extending in all directions more than 30 times as far as from the earth to the sun. (If a train had started from the earth at the time the Declaration of Independence was signed, and had traveled steadily toward the sun at the rate of sixty miles per hour, day and night, it would be about reaching its destination today. But remember that our ball of silver dollars extends thirty times that far in all directions.) If you can imagine the marking of one silver dollar, and then thoroughly stirring it into this great ball, and blindfolding a man and telling him to pick out one dollar, and expect it to be the marked one, you have somewhat of a picture of how absolutely the fulfillment of sixteen prophecies referring to Jesus Christ proves both that He is the Son of God and that our Bible is inspired. Certainly God directed the writing of His Word.

In order to extend this consideration beyond all bounds of human comprehension, let us consider forty-eight prophecies, similar in their human chance of fulfillment to the eight which we originally considered, using a much more conservative number, 1 in 1021. Applying the same principle of probability used so far, we find the chance that any one man fulfilled all forty-eight prophecies to be 1 in 10157.”

Pretty amazing hu? Not much to argue with here unless you’re just dead set against God and all He has to offer and promise, in that case you truly are dead.

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!
