Love your neighbor?

As a Christian I try to practice the teaching of Jesus Christ in my daily life. In a conversation with a lawyer (a religious lawyer), one who studied the Law as found in the Jewish Scriptures. The passage is found in the gospel of Luke:
Luk 10:25-27 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (26) He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” (27) And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” (English Standard Version)
Jesus then answered him that he had spoken correctly and should do as the law required. The Lawyer asked him, “Who is my neighbor”. Jesus then told a story about a man who had been left for dead on a road side by robbers. A priest walked on the road and saw the man lying there and crossed over to the other side so as not to touch the possibly dead man and become unclean. A Levite then came by also a form of priest, somewhat like the deacons in many churches, he too passed by on the other side.

Then along came a Samaritan, seeing the man he went to him, bandaged him as best he could and cleaned out the wounds. Put the man on his animal and took him to an inn. The next day as he was leaving, he handed the innkeeper a goodly sum of money and asked him to take care of the man, anything more that he had to do above the amount that he was given, the Samaritan said he would pay upon his return.

Now we must understand that Samaritans were hated by Jewish people and would normally have nothing to do with them. Jesus asked the Lawyer who was the one who was neighbor to the injured man. The Lawyer replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” He could not just say the Samaritan, they were lower than any Jewish person. He did however realize that Jesus was teaching him that all people are our neighbors.

Since we have removed God from our normal day, no more prayer in schools, no more Bible reading, God is no longer a part of our daily lives in the greater world in which we live. We now have 60 million dead babies, we have school shootings, we have gang violence, drugs are pervasive in our society, we have sexual promiscuity, with children having children, divorce rates have skyrocketed, and marriage is no longer something that is revered.

Evil is rampant in our society, and yet the government says they can solve this problem by just removing guns from law abiding citizens. Problem, then only criminals will be armed, police are armed but cannot come to your aid before you are killed by those criminals. Police are valiant men and women but they cannot stop a crime from happening, they can only react to the crime that has happened. It is my belief that we need to allow for teachers who are licensed concealed carriers to carry on campus, but it is also necessary that we rid ourselves of the “politically correct” crowd in our midst and wake up to the reality of the need for God to be a part of our every day lives.

If God is allowed back into our public square then the teaching of Jesus, of things like “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Blessed are the peacemakers” will be taught and become a part of our very lives again. We also need to speak up when we see something that seems out of place in our neighborhood, to help avert a suicide, or murder. I know that growing up in New York City, I do not remember teen suicides, or death and destruction on every street. I also don’t remember the hatred I see today in our nation. I grew up in an integrated neighborhood, we played baseball, football, basketball together, there was no thought about black or white, just who was the best pitcher or quarterback. We fought with each other, but it was verbal, very rare was it a fist fight.

We had bullies, but we took care of that too, we stuck together and did what was necessary to take care of one another. We loved our neighbors, even the two German kids on the street, (Joke) we were German, Italian, Irish and African. We did not hyphenate our ethnicity, we did not need to, we were and are Americans. Ethnicity did not make any difference. I blame the government, liberal professors, and lawyers for the mess we are in today. We need more of Christ and less of division in our nation, because we are in the midst of destroying this Republic in which we live. Remember I said Republic, not democracy.

I cannot in good conscience ask God to bless America, for we no longer bless God which we used to do regularly. Our nation is now in the midst of total breakdown, and if we continue on this path we shall end up in groups and perhaps it will be another civil war, and this one will destroy our republic.

Come to the Constitution Party website and meet our candidates for President/VP, see also the 7 principles of the party. We believe in the Constitution of the United States as the supreme law of the land. It is not a changeable document as some would have us believe, it is not some living document that changes at the whim of this or that party. It is the foundation of everything we believe in as a part of this nation.

Life, Liberty, Family, Private Property, Declaration of Independence/Constitution/Bill of Rights, State’s Rights, American Sovereignty

That is what our President said in a speech, he says we can’t dawdle we have to address this world-wide threat. The only problem is he is talking about Ebola, not ISIL, a threat that promises to come here and kill our neighbors and families. Ebola, is a horrible disease, but while he won’t put boots on the ground to destroy ISIL, he will send 3,000 of our men and women to take care of logistics so we can save people from dying in Africa.

It is good to see where his priorities lie, it seems he doesn’t really care that our people are in grave danger from ISIL but he does care about people in Africa dying from this disease. The article can be found here. It is amazing he waited an entire year to even mention ISIL, and then only to lead from behind, but with this horror in Africa he jumps out front, sending our troops and medical teams to stop the spread of this killer.

Typical of a social engineer, not of a commander-in-chief. Our military are not men and women to be used as social pawns in his political games, soldiers are to be used properly, to kill people (enemies) and break things. When will we get it straight.

Is impeachment the right course?

I have to wonder about the calls for impeachment of President Obama. As much as I believe he has committed offenses that warrant impeachment, I also wonder if this is a wrong move. I read that Pat Buchanan thinks it would be a mistake. That to impeach the President would just give added fodder to the democrats to use against the Republicans. Sarah Palin on the other hand cites the scandals that surround this President as being proof that he has committed numerous offenses that fit the bill and that it should be done now.

I have to admit, this President has shown a propensity for ignorance, in that, he continues to tell us that he knew nothing about the atrocity at Benghazi, the IRS and the many other scandals swirling around him. Yet there is mounting evidence that Democratic Senators were applying pressure on the IRS, and that much of the IRS targeting was directed from Washington DC not Cincinnati. Of course we also know that the White House and State Department people were also instrumental in propagating the lies about what the Benghazi attack was. Yet the President does not admit to knowing anything, until he read about it in the Newspapers. That of course goes for the deaths of Veterans at VA hospitals around the country.

The problem with writing Bills of Impeachment against the President, are quite literally an exercise in futility. The Senate will never agree to convict the President. Remember Bill Clinton was embroiled in an impeachment bill from the house, and some of the democrats even admitted that he was guilty, but refused to vote to convict. The same would happen today if there were a Bill of Impeachment filed against Obama.

What do you think about this thing? Should the House of Representatives go through the gyrations to bring a bill of impeachment? I do believe it would be an exercise in futility for the house to do this. Join the conversation



Only 10% approval for Congress?

Why is it that Americans have so much distrust of our legislative branch? Is it because they can’t seem to get anything done, or is it because they have allowed spending to spiral out of control? I for one see the attempt to repeal the “Affordable Care Act” and replace it with H. R. 3121, a common sense approach to health care reform, as a positive move by the House of Representatives. Of course the Democrats and the Main Stream Media keep saying that the Republicans have not put forth any plan to fix health care, and people don’t seem to want to check for themselves to see if this is truth or not.

I think it is high time to become informed of the truth instead of listening to the lies you are fed daily by NBC, CBS and ABC who are shills for the Democratic Party, and begin to research this for yourselves. I know that playing games, and conversing with your friends on Facebook is more fun than actually doing your own research, but you need to become informed about the true state of affairs of our nation.Seventeen Trillion Dollars debt is no way to live, budgets need to reflect the true state of our financial house. Instead we continue to spend like drunks who are only looking for the next drink, or addicts looking for the next score.

Learn what is really happening, you may be surprised when you realize that the Democratic party has forced through legislation that will, if not checked, bankrupt our nation. This trip we are on is rapidly sending us in third world status, we no longer influence other nations, our friends can no longer trust our word, and we are making treaties with our enemies and touting this as a wonderful thing. We are ready to allow Iran to continue their uranium enrichment projects and the claim is that they will not be able to get a bomb because they cannot enrich enough to do so. They have been enriching Uranium for years, why do we think we can stop that by words on paper? Why do we turn our backs on our friends and allies and give preferential treatment to our enemies. Iran has threatened to obliterate Israel, and they sponsor terror groups all over the world. It has been reported that they have a group working in South America. Wake up America, before you find yourself unable to defend our country, and facing war again, but, this time on our own soil.

Feel free to comment, I would be glad to hear from you in regard to this or any of my other writings.

Fox News reporter James Rosen has been named as a Co-conspirator in a criminal case involving the release of information from 2009. The story is here. Now it seems to me that Rosen just reported what he had found out, from a briefing perhaps or from a source that he had cultivated. It really doesn’t matter, it appears that the original leaker has already been arrested and is serving time for the release of the information. Meanwhile the Obama Administration is attempting to stifle the freedom of the press. Obama claims to be a man who really believes in the freedom of the press, as set forth in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.

If this were true, why is the DOJ trumping up charges against reporters and going after their personal emails, and telephone calls. Could it be that this White House is lying about wanting a free press? I know that they don’t want law abiding citizens to legally own firearms, why do we think they might want like a free press? Check out the story, then maybe you might be angry enough to write to your congressperson and your senators.
