The LORD answers SCOTUS

Psalm 12

For the director of music. According to sheminith.
A psalm of David.

Help, Lord, for the godly are no more;
the faithful have vanished from among men.

Everyone lies to their neighbor;
their flattering lips speak with deception.

May the Lord cut off all flattering lips and
every boastful tongue that says,
“We will triumph with our tongues;
we own our lips—who is our master?”

“Because of the oppression of the weak and
the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,”
says the Lord. I will protect them from those
who malign them.

And the words of the Lord are flawless,
like silver refined in a furnace of clay,
purified seven times.

O Lord, you will keep us safe and protect us
from such people forever.

The wicked freely strut about
when what is vile is honored
among men.

Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

Micah-6-8

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8

We have been subjected to a lot of apocalyptic talk in recent days.

One of my family members came back from a big Christian music event, and told me he doesn’t intend to go there again. He said that on the way home, the others in the car with him were talking about how all Christians will soon be rounded up and killed, due to the recent Supreme Court decision on gay marriage. He said he has had it with all the fear talk. One of the geniuses in the car even said there are only about 15,000 real Christians in the country. (I would love to see how he gets his statistics.)

My advice was to remind him of some things that have not changed:

  • Gays are a tiny minority in this country, and the radical ones who want to cause trouble are a tiny minority of the gays. That’s a small number.
  • Christians in America are a majority, which is why each of the elections since Obama was elected have seen landslides for conservatives.The Christians in America are not pacifists. We will fight.
  • God hasn’t abandoned us.
  • The war between good and evil has been going on since Cain killed Abel. People thought the world was ending when Hitler took over.
  • This is not the final round. We don’t stop fighting. We need to be like Rocky Balboa, and get back in the ring. Make the enemy wish they had never started the fight.

Whether the Lord returns today, or 30,000 years from now, whether we leave this earth in the rapture or when our death comes, God’s desire is that we…

Do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God

Let’s be sure that we are found doing good, instead of wasting time speculating on the timing of of things the Father is keeping secret.


One word of advice to Pelosi Catholics and Clinton Baptists

REPENT

Proverbs 15:8

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD! But the prayer of the upright is HIS delight. – Proverbs 15:8

[The acts of the hypocrite’s worship are as abominable to God as if they were offered to idols.] He who kills an ox [then] will be as guilty as if he slew and sacrificed a man; he who sacrifices a lamb or a kid, as if he broke a dog’s neck and sacrificed him; he who offers a cereal offering, as if he offered swine’s blood; he who burns incense [to God], as if he blessed an idol. [Such people] have chosen their own ways, and they delight in their abominations;

So I also will choose their delusions and mockings, their calamities and afflictions, and I will bring their fears upon them—because when I called, no one answered; when I spoke, they did not listen or obey. But they did what was evil in My sight and chose that in which I did not delight.”

– Isaiah 66:3-4 Amplified Version

I’m not posting this to gloat. I’m urging everyone to turn around and run to Jesus in repentance, receive His forgiveness, and find eternal life. ~TD

“These are the ones I look on with favor:
those who are humble and contrite in spirit,
and who tremble at my word.”
– Isaiah 66:2


A candidate for the stupid voter

“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.” – Winston Churchill

Martin O’Malley
Former Governor of Maryland

Remember the “beef cake” picture of Obama at the beach?

Remember how the crones on “The View” became dizzy and how Chris Matthews got “tingly?”

obama-beach-pictureI am stifling a gag as I post this piece. Please note that this is the former governor of Maryland, who’s city of Baltimore hosted the ugliest race riots since Rodney King, and who’s leftist policies set up the conditions that caused them.

Ted and BarryYes, he’s white and has an Irish name. But before you start feeling safe, remember another white guy white an Irish name who endorsed Barack Obama in his first run for president.

America, brace yourselves for an onslaught of the stupidest reasons imaginable to vote for a presidential candidate.

If Ignorance Is Bliss, Why Are Democrats Such Angry Extremists?

image

Whenever I hear the expression “Ignorance is bliss”, I think about a television sitcom, or the actors I see in television commercials or in print ads. They’re not just happy, they’re giddy. Indescribably giddy. All because they just saved 15% on their car insurance, or scored tickets to the latest concert. Life, filled with calamities, goes on all around them, but they’re oblivious. Their lives are laughter and mirth.

I can count the number of people I know like that in real life on one hand.

One was a girl I worked with. She was short and covered with tattoos. She smiled constantly. She had a witty mind and every verbal exchange was good for a laugh or a smile. She had no clue about politics or current events. She was nineteen-years-old with a two-year-old daughter, a live-in boyfriend, and she was sleeping her way through every male in the company.

The second was a girl I dated briefly. She also had a witty mind and a contagious laugh. In fact, she never knew when to stop laughing. Everything was a joke. I have no idea where she is now.

The last one was an actress I performed with. She knew nothing of current events, but thought she did. Of course, she was a leftist. Her whole existence was acting, singing and dancing. Last I heard she was a drunk.

So where are all these other giddy, blissful people? And how about this matter of ignorance? If we’re willing to be perfectly honest (and most people aren’t), then it’s obvious to anyone with a brain that Democrats are ignorant.

You want proof, you say? Well, take a look out the window. Look at the economic policies that have destroyed our cities. Look at the tax rates and regulations that have strangled small business owners and forced corporations to outsource jobs and factories. Look at our education system. Look at your paycheck, for crying out loud, and how little money you have left after Uncle Sam takes his cut. All of these and more are policies introduced and put into law by Democrats. And yet voters continue to elect them.

Whenever there’s a deadly shooting, the alleged shooter is a Democrat. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/06/11/sensible-gun-control/)

Whenever there’s a race riot, hate crime, or civil unrest, the people involved are Democrats. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/black-racism-race-riots/)

Whenever our country’s morals are lowered through crass and vulgar “art” or cinema, the people responsible are Democrats.

We have entire cities that have been under complete Democrat control for decades (Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore) or centuries (Atlanta), and they’re all hellholes, filled with violence, crime and anger.

I see a lot of ignorance, but not much bliss. And they all seem pretty angry to me.

Ignorance isn’t bliss. Ignorance is anger. Ignorance is hatred. Ignorance is violence. Ignorance is being a Democrat.

The Triangle of Freedom

America is missing the most important component of freedom

guinnessIn his book, “UNSPEAKABLE – “Facing up to Evil in an Age of Genocide and Terror,”  Os Guinness lays out a clear minded view of this moment in time. Of particular importance to Americans is the following section of his book, focusing on the “American Experiment.” He points out that we have forgotten an ingredient of our system that is more important that all the others. The following is directly from his book.

“The Framers’ Forgotten Issue

The second grand erosion concerns the contemporary dismissal of the American Framers’ solution for the problems of freedom. For the brilliant generation that devised what George Washington called the “great experiment,” the hardest problem to solve was the transience of freedom. Not only is it harder to be free than not to be free, but freedom never lasts. In politics, as in all spheres of human endeavor, no success is forever. Success finally fails. The challenge therefore is not just to win freedom (the achievement of the revolution in 1776), or even to order freedom (the achievement of the Constitution in 1787); the challenge is to sustain freedom⎯an achievement that is never finished because it is the challenge not of years or even decades, but of centuries.

The Framers’ realism in tackling this task was born of their knowledge of history, and in particular their intimate knowledge of the classical understanding of why freedom never lasts. They used history to defy history, and the roots of their wisdom are the key to understanding the revolution of their solutions.

For such writers as the Roman statesman Cicero and the Greek historian Polybius, there were three menaces to sustaining freedom: external menaces from other powers, and two internal menaces⎯the corruption of customs and the passing of time. The American experiment was designed to counteract all three.

If asked today what the Framers’ solution was, most Americans cite the distinctive seperation of powers in the Constitution, and this is indeed a crucial part of the solution.

But in fact, the ingenius American system of checks and balances is only half of the framers’ solution, and in the framers’ view, it would be inadequate without the other part. The forgotten part of the framers’ solution may be called the enduring triangle of freedom: freedom requires virtue, virtue requires faith of some sort, and faith requires freedom. Only so can a free republic hope to remain free.

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom,” Benjamin Franklin said in support of the first assumption, and the framers’ unanimity on this point is a powerful chorus in his support. At the same time they were equally clear that law alone is not enough to restrain evil and sustain freedom. As John Adams put it⎯and the support was again overwhelming⎯”We have no government armed with powers capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The force of the framers’ declaration of this triangle of freedom is undeniable. But it is equally undeniable that many American leaders dismiss or overlook it today. On the one hand, the majority of believers in America have a faith so privatized that it has become “privately engaging and publicly irrelevant”⎯too amiably innocuous to serve the strenuous cause of freedom. On the other hand, the educated elite have espoused a different vision of public life, one in which faith, character and virtue are to be inviolably private and the public square⎯a neutral arena of competing interrests⎯is to be inviolably secular.

The framers’ arguments can be dismissed in one of several ways. Some argue that their views were only a matter of rhetoric and cant, though they themselves denied this. Others argue that they were children of their times, but a study of other republicans of their day shows this was not so. Finally, still others argue, we moderns have discovered some sustaining power for freedom that does what the framers thought the triangle of freedom was needed to do.

This last possibility is the most plausible, though people that make this claim should openly declare what the substitute is. Most people have nothing convincing to say at this point and fall back lamely on the answers of law and technology. A moment’s thought, however, would show that reliance on law without faith or virtue only produces more laws and greater regulations, just as reliance on technology without faith and virtue produces tighter and tighter systems of surveillance. In either case, freedom is steadily undermined.

It is also possible that the framers were not indulging in high-flying rhetoric better suited for the Fourth of July but were in fact correct⎯soundly, solidly correct with all the realism and wisdom of history and political theory on their side. For America to “work,” Americans must cultivate the virtues necessary for freedom and ensure that they are passed from generation to generation. This is the political challenge of our times. Without this triangle of freedom, freedom cannot and will not last. If we celebrate freedom but remove from it all virtue until no good remains, we will not only lose freedom but ensure that what is left is evil. Thus, if the framers were correct, the contemporary adulation of their genius that ignores the heart of their realism and brilliance is a fateful neglect that tips the scales toward some future evil that no checks and balances will be able to stop.

(Note: 2005 was before America elected Barack Obama)

To clarify my point, if our culture continues into moral ruin, with LGBT, 50 Shades of Perversion, abortion on demand and every other sin, we cannot continue to be free. Our freedom will surely and soon be taken away from us unless we repent and call out to God for forgiveness.

Proverbs 6:12-19

A troublemaker and a villain,
who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
who winks maliciously with his eye,
signals with his feet
and motions with his fingers,
who plots evil with deceit in his heart—
he always stirs up conflict.

Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant;
he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.

There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

It seems our president has scored 100%!
