Some Things to Think About!

SET thinkingWe love some liars so much, that we lie to ourselves in an effort to believe their lies!

The only people not in need of prayers are those below ground.

Time with God is no time at all unless time with God is all the time

Christians were never asked to have blind faith. It is not God’s fault that the biblically illiterate can’t see. Continue reading Some Things to Think About!


Saggy Pants Maybe Good For The Economy

1. Sagging requires a constant supply of different underwear. Saggers can’t be seen in the same shorts every day.

2. Sagging encourages exercise. Since half naked butt showing rappers are buffed, flabby butt imitators wouldn’t look good.

3. Sagging requires a constant supply of clean underwear. No one wants to be seen in dirty drawers. Besides, we’ve always been warned to wear clean underwear just in case we in up in the emergency room.

4. Sagging should stimulate the fastener industry. Belts alone cannot make those pants defy gravity! The wearers must supplement belts with safety pins, Velcro or some other fastener.

5. Sagging reduces crime. The skill required to steal, sag and run must be exceptional. It is less likely that criminals are able to run faster and jump higher with pants falling. Holding pants with one hand, and a weapon in the other, will leave no hands for the booty. A potential theft must choose between protecting his booty or taking the booty!

6. Sagging sells pants! The constant dragging of oversized pants shreds them. If only there was a secondary market for the ladies, but they wear shredded pants legs not pants cuffs.

7. Sagging is culturally relevant? That is what some people claim. Thus far, I haven’t been able to locate that culture. Maybe I could find them on the National Geographic or Discovery Channel? I’ll keep looking.

8 Sagging could revolutionize underwear advertising. No longer will Calvin Klein, Hanes or Fruit of the Loom need to shell out millions to the media for advertisement. All they need to do is pass out thousands of boxer shorts to this sagging nation of walking billboards and watch the cash walk, I mean sag in.

GCB Thank You Disney and ABC- (Thank God, this abomination was cancelled)

In the 1996 remake of the Nutty Professor, Buddy Love (Eddie Murphy) took (Carla Purty) Jada Pinkett Smith to a comedy club. In the club Reggie Warrington (Dave Chappelle) made a living insulting the guest. I look forward to the occasional evening on the town, but paying to be insulted isn’t what I call entertainment. Undoubtedly, some people like being insulted or these comedy clubs would go out of business.
I wonder; has the Disney Company become a comedy club? Does ABC have jokes? The new comedy, GCB aka Good Christian Bitches isn’t going to gain acceptance with real Christians. Do they think we are masochists? But then again, maybe they just think that we are all stupid!
The birth date of my youngest daughter is the 27th of December. A few years ago we decided to celebrate her birthday at Disneyland. It was a very cold evening at the Magic Kingdom and the place was packed. The size of the crowd gave me visions of the movie Soylent Green. As we slugged our way through the crowd, I noticed various secular holiday symbols. I looked, but never saw a religious symbol. If a person visiting Disneyland that day never heard of Jesus, he could have easily mistaken Santa Claus as the reason for the season.
Although it would have been respectful to see something about Christ that evening, I came to the park to have a good time. I was not offended as I did not expect any more from Disneyland. However, I was very offended by GCB. It is one thing to be secular, it is quite another to shamefully disrespectful. Everyone knows that neither Disney nor ABC would dare offend Muslims. I guess Christian abuse is acceptable, because we are not known to blow people up or cut their heads off. We do spend money and plenty of it! Seems to me that would be worth considering.
So here is the big question. Why should Christians continue to support Disney when they do not respect us? They make movies about genies, fairies, horses, dogs, frogs, cats and heroes of most creeds and colors, but never ever a Christian. The closest thing to honoring Christ I’ve heard in a Disney movie was Edwin Hawkins Singers version of “Oh Happy Day”. Listening to that song as Secretariat blew out the field in the 1973 Preakness was exciting, but hardly inspirational.
For the real Christian, GCB is just another insult to our faith. Disney and ABC reduced Christians to a bunch of gossips, liars and lust filled hypocrites. Instead of the house of worship, the church was transformed into a place of contempt, vengeance and deceit. The mockery wouldn’t have been complete without the wing nut Christian grandmother, pumping up her granddaughter’s breast!
It is no wonder that the Body of Christ has such a battle; we have to fight the enemies of Christ in both the real and make believe worlds. Thank you Disney and ABC for showing real Christians just what you think of us! I just hope that all real Christians show you how much we appreciate and enjoy being insulted by your comedy club.

Guard Your Eyes and your Body

Around 7:00 am on February 16, 2012 as I was preparing for work, I turned on the Fox News Network. Martha MacCallum was interviewing Congressman Fred Upton of Michigan. After an exchange of political issues concerning the nation, the interview was directed towards his niece, Kate Upton, Sports Illustrated 2012 swimsuit issue cover girl.

Suddenly, plastered across my 50” Vizio High Definition screen, was the photo of the extremely attractive young blonde lady. My eyes were immediately drawn to the bottom portion of her barely visible bikini. This semi-naked woman will undoubtedly inflict sexual thoughts in the minds of men. That is why the swimsuit additions sell so much. As with most men, I am not immune to pleasures of seeing the feminine form. Nevertheless, I also realize that some sights are not meant to be shared with everyone.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matt 5:27-28 (NIV)

Jesus commands us to guard our eyes, but society invites us to lust with them. Why else would all forms of visual media celebrate a virtually nude woman? There was no mention of her academic accomplishments, medical discoveries, or contributions to society in any way. The only thing Ms. Upton contributed to the public was the viewing of her body.

Men have been known to pay vast amounts of money to see women in various stages of undress; however, for a sitting congressman to appear gleeful at the voyeurization of his niece is confusing! Congressman Upton stated, “It’s been fun to watch her grow up. She’s only 19, but we’re all proud of Kate.”

I ask, proud of what? That she has reached the age of 19 and exposes her body to the world! We condemn Islamic countries for having women dress in burkas with only a slit open for their eyes. Then we celebrate a young woman clothed in little more than slits to cover her intimate parts.

During the congressman’s interview, we were also granted a small segment of Kate’s interview. She girlishly offered, “I have a very close and supportive family and they’re all very proud of me.”

I can’t help but wonder what kind of family takes pleasure in the exploitation of their daughter? How can the uncle, father or any other male member of the family celebrate her nakedness? How does one turn off the normal visual dynamics generated from the sight of the female body without violating that body visually?

This uncle should be ashamed, but like many of us, he maybe a victim to our lack of shame and modesty.

Seeking Safety in Diluted Language

There was a time when people said what they meant and meant what they said. A time when conversations were understood not only by those who engaged in the conversation, but by anyone listening. There was a time when a man’s words meant everything. There was a time when a person caught in a lie was a liar. Now the person has misspoke or we need clarification on what the meaning of “is” is.

The slippery slope of linguistic lunacy has paved the way for more lies and decent. It provides cover for those attempting to circumvent reality. Clear direct speech is no longer used or permitted. It is thought to be harmful or insensitive. Therefore, we’ve learned to finesse our speech to comfort the ears and sensibilities of the listener. We avoid speaking in unpleasant terms to spare the “mental feelings” of those around us. We’ve mastered the art of double speak by reframing unpleasantness into pleasantness.

I would like to demonstrate how lies present abortion in acceptable terms and then frame the abomination properly.

(1) We should always protect a woman’s right to choose. (2) No woman should ever be made to do something against her will. (3) It is her body and no one has the right to tell her what to do with it.

Women in America have the right to kill their babies! They can have those children sliced, diced, burn or ripped out of their bodies at will. Christians cannot control what a woman does with her body. Christians can only point to the truth. The truth is that at pre-abortion, a living child is growing inside the woman. At post-abortion, the child removed from the womb is dead. Regardless how it is spun by the media, abortion advocates, or those performing the “service”, once the fruit of the womb is removed, life ceases.

What about the women who are raped? They were violated by wicked evil men. What about them? Why should they be made to carry that child?

Because it is a child! It must be a terrible thing to be raped. The person who committed the crime deserves no mercy, but abortion is not the solution. Instead of one victim, there will be two! Where is the logic in that? Where is the mercy in destroying an innocent life to avenge the misdeeds of another?

There are so many unwanted children in the world. It would be cruel to bring an unwanted child in the world.

Are you saying that an unwanted child would be better off dead? Better off for whom, certainly not the child. Perhaps the child would have made a “better” parent than the one seeking an abortion. If the tables were turned, maybe that child would spare the parents life? There is a great demand for babies, or there wouldn’t be a waiting line for adoptions. I would also venture to say, people generally chose life over death. Why would an unwanted child be any different?

Unintended pregnancies are very emotional situations in which a woman, her family and doctor should discuss. It is no one else’s business.

With over 50,000,000 abortions in America since 1973, I believe it is everyone’s business! It surely is the abortion industries business and it is booming! They are making a (pun intended) killing! It is societies business, because our country is going broke. A reduced population leads to a reduced work force, which in turn generates fewer tax revenues. It is the churches business, because many of those who attend churches are also attending abortuaries.

When a society embraces the intended deaths of their unborn and elderly; it is only a matter of time before that society self destructs. Take not my word, but look back at the historical evidence. The data is available for those willing to research it. Only fools ignore danger, but sometimes the foolish cannot recognize it. Remember the words of an infamous leader that meant every word he said. Too bad, the foolish didn’t listen to him in time.

“What luck for rulers that men do not think!” Adolf Hitler
We must reject mans wisdom and seek the counsel of God. By His word we can live confidently. We will not be deceived by liars or lunatics. We must respect the living; whether, they are inside or outside of the womb. We must honor God’s creation and serve only Him.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Ps 139:13-14 (NIV)

Mormonism Truth or Consequences Pt. 2 Examining the Mormon Articles of Faith (1-5)

(1)“We believe in God the Eternal Father, and in his Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
I have always declared God to be a distinct personage, Jesus Christ a separate and distinct personage from God the Father, and that the Holy Ghost was a distinct personage and a Spirit: and these three constitute three distinct personages and three Gods. If this is in accordance with the New Testament, lo and behold! we have three Gods anyhow, and they are plural; and who can contradict it? Joseph Smith – History of the Church Volume 6, Ch. 12, p. 274
Christian view of God
The Bible states that there is only one God. The Bible calls the Father God. The Bible calls the Son God. The Bible calls the Holy Spirit God. Since the Bible states there is only one God; The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are the One God.
Deut 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: (KJV)
Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. (KJV)
(2) We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.
And they would have had no children; wherefore, they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no joy, for they knew no misery: doing no good, for they knew no sin. But, behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of Him who knoweth all things. Adam fell, that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy BOM 2 Nephi 2:23-25 1835 ed.
Christian view – Adam’s sin was a curse
Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (KJV)
(3) We believe that through the atonement of Christ all mankind may be saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
“One of the most fallacious doctrines originated by Satan and propounded by man is that man is saved alone by the grace of God; that belief in Jesus Christ alone is all that is needed for salvation” (12th Prophet Spencer W. Kimball, The Miracle of Forgiveness, p.206; also cited in The Book of Mormon Student Manual, religion 121 and 122, 1996, p.36).
Christian view of Salvation
John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (KJV)
Eph 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. (KJV)
(4) We believe that these ordinance are: 1st, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ: 2d, Repentance: 3d, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins: 4th, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.


Sounds like Christianity, but is it?


The appointment of Jesus to be the Savior of the world was contested by one of the other sons of God. He was called Lucifer, son of the morning. Haughty, ambitious, and covetous of power and glory, this spirit-brother of Jesus desperately tried to become the Savior of mankind. Milton R. Hunter, Gospel Through The Ages p. 15
(5) We believe that a man must be called of God by “prophesy, and by laying on of hands” by these who are in authority to preach the gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.
But who in this generation have authority to baptize? None but those who have received authority in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints: all other churches are entirely destitute of all authority from God; and any person who receives Baptism or the Lord’s supper from their hands will highly offend God, for he looks upon them as the most corrupt of all people. Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the “whore of Babylon” whom the Lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness. And any person who shall be so wicked as to receive a holy ordinance of the gospel from the ministers of any of these apostate churches will be sent down to hell with them, unless they repent of the unholy and impious act. Orson Pratt, The Seer, p. 255
Christian authority comes from Christ!
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (KJV)
Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Mormonism Truth or Consequences

During one of the Republican Presidential debates, all of the other candidates were asked if Mitt Romney’s religion was a cult. Each candidate stated that Mormonism wasn’t a cult. A better question would have been; what is Mormonism? The best place to obtain the answer is from Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Joseph Smith claimed to have met God the Father and Jesus Christ, (both in the flesh) and asked them which denomination of the Christian church he should join. The answer displayed on the LDS.org website is as follows:
I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all ccorrupt; that: “they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.” Joseph Smith – History of the Church Vol. 1 verse 19
So according to Joseph Smith “ALL” churches outside of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are all wrong, corrupt and abominable! Therefore, if Mitt Romney’s church is not a cult, all other “Christian” churches must be! In an effort NOT to appear offensive, each and every other Republican nominee condemned the entirety of the Body of Christ for the Mormon faith.
Was Joseph Smith correct? Are all churches wrong? Is the LDS church right? If Joseph Smith and the claims of Mormonism cannot past biblical test, both must be rejected and Mormonism branded as a cult.
1Thes 5:21Test everything. Hold on to the good. (NIV)


Mormons say Jesus wasn’t conceived by the Holy Spirit
CHRIST NOT BEGOTTEN OF HOLY GHOST. I believe firmly that Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God in the flesh. He taught this doctrine to his disciples. He did not teach them that he was the Son of the Holy Ghost, but the Son of the Father. Truly, all things are done by the power of the Holy Ghost. It was through this power that Jesus was brought into this world, but not as the Son of the Holy Ghost, but the Son of God. Jesus is greater than the Holy Spirit, which is subject unto him, but his Father is greater than he! He has said it. Christ was begotten of God. He was not born without the aid of Man, and that Man was God! Author: Joseph Fielding Smith Source: Doctrines of Salvation Volume: 1Page: 18
The Bible states that Mary was with child by the Holy Spirit
Matt 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. (KJV)
The Book of Mormon claims Jesus was born in Jerusalem!
10 And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God. Book of Mormon Alma 7:10
The Bible said Jesus was born in Bethlehem
Matt 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, (KJV)
Mormons believe that God the father has flesh and bones!
The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s; the Son also; but the Holy Ghost has not a body of flesh and bones, but is a personage of Spirit. Were it not so, the Holy Ghost could not dwell in us. Doctrine & Covenants 130:22
The Bible states by the mouth of Jesus Himself that the Father is Spirit!
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (KJV)
Joseph Smith spoke of multiple Gods!
In the beginning, the head of the Gods called a council of the Gods: and they came together and concocted a plan to create the world and people it. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 349
The Bible affirms one God.
Deut 6:4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: (KJV)
Isa 43:10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. (NIV)

The religion of Mitt Romney failed the above test of Christianity in each instance and it fails in areas not stated in this blog. If the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true Church of God, then Mormonism is correct and all other churches are wrong; however, for that to be true, the Bible must be false. If we are to believe the Bible, Mormonism is wrong and a cult. Our Republican leaders, who all claim to be Christians, would be better served to know Christian theology.

What’s Up My Nigga?

I am not your nigger. What ever gave you that idea? Is it that you were never taught? Don’t you know what it cost to kill that name? My brother, why resurrect the pain? Are you an emissary of the Klan? Some fool raping the land or just another dumb stupid uneducated black man?

That name was buried in blood. Not the blood of our Lord which was shed for the sins of all. Even His blood didn’t stop the unrelenting call of Nigger. But His blood gave us the strength to shed our own. And we did! We shed it gladly because we knew that dead we would be free, but alive niggers we refused to be.

Yet you continue to resurrect that insidious name! A name that reeks of degradation, self loathing and pain. Why do it? Have you no shame? How can you walk on the graves of those who sacrificed all they had to eliminate that accursed name? Would you walk up to Martin and say, “What’s up my nigga?” Would you tell Medgar the same? While you’re at it, reach deep down into that Mississippi pit and tell the blood of Goodman, Schwerner and Chaney that they should have never came. Go tell Emmett Till too! Boy, you should have stayed up there in that Chicago school.

Don’t forget to pay homage to the countless trees from Georgia to Tennessee. Trees that held the disemboweled bodies of black men like me. Yes pay your respect to places like Stone Mountain and Pulaski where burning crosses darkened the sky, so evil men could lay plans for who must die.

Harriet Tubman didn’t accept that name. Frederick Douglass felt the same. Both fought and were ready to die, so that the word nigger wouldn’t survive. Yet you’d spit on the grave of Richard Allen and tell the 54th Mass to get out of your way. You’d call Sojourner a liar and Booker T a fool, because you can’t see that they saw you another way.

Then you confuse some white folks by the way you act. The racist cheer and shout for joy, because you proved them right when you fell for their ploy. To them a nigger is no better than a mangy dog. They point to your lack of self respect as proof to all. By calling your brother nigger, you have validated their sin and justified their reasoning that we are really nothing more than an error of creation in dark skin. So they take heart knowing their work is almost done. After years of lynchings, now they watch us kill each other for fun.

Yet there were others willing to sacrifice all. To prove that a black man wasn’t a dog. From Coffin to Garrison they stood in the gap and like our forerunners they too had to endure many a racist trap. They were called carpetbaggers, scalawags and nigger lovers too. And for many the cost of blood was due. John Brown took up arms trying to set our people free, and for his efforts he was hung from yet another tree. Many others joined the cause to remove that awful name. Their efforts too required much heartache and pain.

What do their descendants think when they hear you voice a name so cruel? In vain do they dread that their ancestor’s efforts failed and that black men are only worthy of hell. No they still hope and pray like me that one day we will all walk in dignity. Once you understand what hatred really means, you’ll learn that only love can set a man free. And in that day when you can finally see, out of your mouth the word nigger will cease to be.
