Love one another

I find it exceedingly interesting to see the hatred in our society, even many so-called Christian leaders are becoming hateful persons. Some even going so far as to curse other leaders in other denominations for confessing that the Bible is the one book that all people should read because it tells the truth about relationships. There are two wonderful passages in the Bible that more people do need to read, especially in light of the horrific things that are happening in our world today.

Here is the first: Acts 2:42-46 ESV  And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.  (43)  And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.  (44)  And all who believed were together and had all things in common.  (45)  And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.  (46)  And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,

The next is Jesus speaking to a lawyer/teacher of the Scriptures:
Luke 10:25-27 ESV  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.” Jesus then says: Luke 10:28  And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” 

I grew up in an integrated neighborhood in New York City, we never worried about ethnicity, we were more concerned about how well you could play stickball, baseball, football, etc. It made no difference what your color or national origin was we were all friends. We played games, we went to school together, and we really enjoyed being with each other. Today, it seems that we have become almost tribal in the way we live and work. The hatred that is now rampant in our streets is a disgrace, this nation was built on certain principles. We all wanted to succeed in life but we also wanted our friends to succeed as well. Now it seems we want those others to fail at life, we even work hard to make sure they will fail.

I remember when my brother came home from the Army, he was told that he was only 10% disabled so he would not be eligible for any benefits other than for that bad hand. He went to our congressperson, a Democrat and that guy went to bat for him and he was upped to 25% disabled, due to the military screwing up his surgery. Later we found out he was also exposed to Agent Orange, but that is a whole different topic. The point is that in those days our politicians worked for us, and it made no difference whether you voted for them or not. We all lived in the same country and we needed that country to be united. We were one people, not many different people living in the same country.

Today it seems we are tribes living in the same country but with different ideas about who we are and whether we want to associate with one another. I see it in many ways as I go through my daily routines. I hear the terrible things said by Democrats about our President, I hear the terrible things said about Christian beliefs by TV personalities and of course I hear that we cannot take money away from Planned Parenthood because they use it for family planning. I’m sorry if I don’t believe that, I note that the only thing they do these days is abortions. I have heard that only one groups lives matter, yet abortions are decimating the Black Community and I have heard none of them saying that those lives matter.

I hear people blaming the NRA for school shootings, yet the NRA wants to insure that our children are protected, not killed. I hear people saying that our children must learn about sex at school, and that some of what they are learning is perversion of the action rather than telling the truth about how disease is spread in the very activity that is talked about. I have read about a school board who wants to teach our kids that there is no such thing as biological sex. In other words we are all born neutral and get to choose our own sex as we get older. I seem to remember reading that all human life has sprung from one female person. That there must be a male and female to produce human children. Oh and of course there is that DNA thing that tells your body what goes where, and what sex you are at birth.

I notice these people running around looking very tribal, tattoos and nose rings, diamond studs through their lips, and other strange things. I note that the “children” are now running the schools, they must be since they decided to go out and protest about guns all across the country, and no one says anything against this because you can’t say anything against a legitimate grievance that the “children” have. I have placed the word children in quotes simply because they are being used by the socialists in our society, they think that they know what they are talking about, but the truth is they have been indoctrinated by the socialists who are running our education system from Kindergarten through University.

The President talks about making America Great Again, but the truth is it is a long and hard climb for the country to escape from the slime that the socialists have made of our nation. The Democrats have become the Socialist Party, the Republicans are still trying to figure out who they are, conservative, liberal, or somewhere else on the spectrum. Neither of them care one whit about the Constitution upon which this nation was formed, they have forgotten we are not a Democracy we are a Constitutional Republic, that our laws are built from the knowledge of the founders who believed in the Christian faith and the ideals that were a part of that faith. Both groups want one thing and that is power.

Well this is a bit longer than I thought it would be, but I am tired of the hatred and the foolishness of our country. We are men and women, we need to learn once more to respect each other and to love one another, so that we may live in peace and harmony and so we will then be able to Make our Nation Great again, and keep it that way.

WAKE UP AMERICA, time is short, and there is very little time left to find the right path to take.

Legalize Marijuana use?

Marijuana, is a very dangerous drug, for one thing it has 20 times the amount of carcinogens than tobacco, Lung Cancer anyone? Colorado is learning about this drug and auto accidents (DUI). There have been a few studies that show just what kind of problems arise from the use of this drug. Here are just 2:

“Cannabis–‐Related ED Visits Rise in States With Legalized Use,” Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP), 25th Annual Meeting, (www.ibhinc.org) December 2014

“Cannabis Use Is Quantitatively Associated with Nucleus Accumbens and Amygdala Abnormalities in Young Adult Recreational Users,” Journal of Neuroscience, 16 April 2014, 34(16): 5529-5538

The problems are escalating greatly in states that have legalized use of this drug. In young people there are definite changes in the brain. Please also note that with prolonged use, you will probably develop the old “Cigarette Cough”, this leads to lung problems later in life such as Emphysema and cancer. Today’s cannabis is much stronger that it was in the 60’s. In some strains up to 30% stronger THC. This is a drug that leads to all kinds of problems, not the least of which is psychosis. The Emergency Rooms in places where cannabis is legal, are experiencing a big uptick in overdose cases, where psychosis is one of the many problems seen.

Now I am not against people being able to do those things that seem right to them, but I am also not willing to see medical costs skyrocket as this stuff gets more and more use across our nation. There is a reason for the ban on these drugs, and it is because of what they do to people. Read the history of why drugs were banned in this country over a hundred years ago, it was not a pretty picture.

These politicians don’t care about the science, they only care about taxing the industry created by the legalization of this drug. They claim that they are doing away with crime, but the black market is thriving, because of the taxes on the product. Criminals don’t pay sales tax. The politicians (criminals) that want to legalize this stuff are only interested in their own ability to control the population, they don’t care that it will cause people to die horrible deaths just as they yell and scream about tobacco. Check out what the true science tells us, then, if you want to kill your children, destroy more lives including your own, continue down this path. The libertarians are wrong on this one, I like Stossel but he is dead wrong on legalization of drugs.

Global Warming: Anthropogenic or Not? | AITSE.

The Land of Israel

I have watched the news and the speeches of world leaders at the United Nations, and I am absolutely mystified at what I have seen and heard. Our own President Barack Hussein Obama gave a speech that was spurious at best. He told the same untruth that his administration has been giving us since the attack on our embassy and the murder of our Ambassador to Libya and 3 others. His speech was long on apologies and short on action. I watched Israel’s Leader Binyamin Netanyahu, who stood up and spoke truth into a hateful group of people who wish only his and Israel’s destruction. I watched as Iran’s Leader spoke hate and destruction of Israel and the United States and then Egypt’s Leader spew hate for Israel and the West. I was amazed that we still allow the U. N. to take up space in our nation. It is not a group of nations who are intent on cooperation but rather a set of factions ready and willing to destroy those who are not like them, and then to destroy each other in the name of their god.

I did some research into this people called Israel, and am even more surprised and mystified as to why so many people want to destroy this land and its people. First let me dispel this lie that the Jewish people have only been in that part of the world for 50 to 60 years. Jews have lived in Israel (the Romans called it Palestine) for thousands of years. There is scientific evidence for their presence in the land. Even after Rome defeated them and destroyed the 2nd Temple in AD 70, there were still Jews left in the land. Jews returned to the land over the next 2,000 years after having been exiled, they came back and joined with their brothers and sisters who were not exiled. By the 1870’s they were again the majority religious group in Jerusalem. As they moved back they purchased the land from the Arabs who claimed it but did not live on it.
In modern times the Jewish people have reclaimed the desert, they planted trees and crops and the land again became what it once was, a land of beauty.

Why would the Arab nations want to destroy Israel, a place where the people have improved the standard of living for all who live in their land. Arabs and Jews alike share in the bounties of the land, Arab citizens serve in the Government, and in the Homeland Security positions, they are not discriminated against they are active participants in the life of Israel. Let us also understand some of the things that Israel has contributed to the world. They are the only Country in the world that entered the 21st Century with more trees than there were prior. It was the Israeli scientists who came up with bacteria to clean up oil spills. They have developed systems for irrigation that has changed agriculture, their drip irrigation system uses less water and is more efficient than other systems. It is in use here in the United States in South Texas. They developed the sun heated water tank, which converts solar energy into thermal energy.

Israeli scientists have also developed a vaccine to treat anthrax, research is moving on for treatment and/or cures for type 1 Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and emphysema. They even have a device that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct without damage to surrounding skin. Safer methods for diagnosing diseases, how about a mini-video camera that fits inside a pill (indigestible of course) that will allow for diagnosis of intestinal diseases, and safer imaging techniques for diagnosing breast cancer.

Israeli researchers are also working on a (the Jetsons live), flying car, the Israeli company Urban Aerodynamics has a prototype they are testing, it is called, “X-Hawk Rotorless Flying Evacuation Car”. Israel is also the “Silicon Valley” of the world, they are the 4th largest high-tech economy since the 1990s. Microsoft and Intel have both built their only non-US R&D facilities in Israel. They developed the cell phone (Motorola-Israel), the technology behind AOL Instant Messenger, the first PC anti-virus software (1979), voice mail technology, nanotechnology and electro-optic chips. They also developed the Pentium 4 Microprocessor for desktops and the Centrino processor for laptops.

Israel also has the third-highest rate of entrepreneurship in the world, including the highest rate among women and people over 55. They also have the world’s highest per capita rate of university degrees, they have the highest ratio of scientists and technicians in the workforce, 135 per 1,000 citizens. In the U. S. the number is 85 per 1,000 citizens. They also rank third worldwide in per capita patents, behind the U. S. and Japan. Why then would there be so much hatred toward the Jews, toward Israel?

Why destroy such a treasure trove of science and technology? Could it be that the hatred that has exhibited itself over and over again throughout history, is something that will only be ended when, as we Christians believe the Messiah will come to right the wrongs of the world? The Jewish people are still waiting for the first coming, we believe it will be the second coming, but it does seem that the only way this hatred will be ended is for God to intervene and end the bloodshed and hatred that emanates from the Arab and Iranian (they are not arabs) people. This seems to be the only explanation, for this terrible wish to destroy Israel that comes from so many of these countries. Of course we can’t forget the Russians and the Chinese who are backing the Arabs and Iranians against the Jewish people.

I pray that we in the United States will wake up and again be a people who stand solidly with our ONLY ally in the Middle East. I was horrified when our President said that Israel was one of our strongest allies in that region. Even Jordan is under attack by the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Quaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah. Jordan has been an ally, but, that is going to end before too long as the Caliphate comes closer to realization.

Join the conversation, what do you think about Israel and it’s people? Leave a comment so we can talk about this.
