Immigration-VI-I

29 Jul

The Texas Governor has ordered State and local law enforcement officers  to turn back those who cross the border illegally because the President has done nothing to control the flow and has actually encouraged people to come by telling them the border patrol will not send them back where they came from.  The Justice Dept.  has urged the Governor to cancel the order. President Biden even discontinued building the wall, saying it prevents Hispanics from entering the country. The wall and law enforcement officers don’t prevent Hispanics from coming in, they can still come in as long as they come through legal checkpoints. The wall is designed to keep out those that come in illegally, as well as the terrorists and those that bring in drugs and sex slaves. The more illegal immigrants that flood our country, the fewer legal ones we can accept. We need the families that bring children to boost our failing population growth, but we need to know that they will be productive, law abiding citizens and not drug dealers, prostitutes, and terrorists. By coming in illegally, they show contempt for our laws. We welcome all who want to be free but need to keep out those that want to enslave and kill us.

 
 

Voting-I-AF

29 Jul

President Biden has shown how little respect he has for the American people and the rule of law. He has filed a lawsuit to overturn the election protection laws in conservative States and place all State elections under federal control, in open violation of the Constitution which gives control of elections to the States. It would open their elections and allow anybody to vote that wants to, regardless of whether they are eligible, and allow them to vote as many times as they want to. If would also allow candidates to change the election results if they don’t win. He has been pushing H.B. 1 and S. 1 through Congress but cannot even get everyone in his party to vote for it, so he has turned to corrupt liberal judges who are not elected by the people to force his will on the American people, just as they did with abortion and Gay privileges. If he wins the lawsuit, it will give him and his party unlimited control of the elections and ensure they stay in office for years to come. It will create the same situation throughout the country, that exists in many of our larger cities and those States currently controlled by liberals. It allowed the counting of thousands of ballots with no identifying information that showed up after the polls closed. It also resulted in numerous States reporting more votes cast than eligible voters.  A number of incidents were detected in the 2020 election, however the current administration has refused to investigate them and has fought attempts to audit the election results.

The Biden Administration plans to control of up to 30% of America’s land by 2030, removing it from any productive use. In addition, they plan to extend federal control over land use in large portions of the remaining land to protect the environment and prevent a climate crisis. They plan to do this while opening our borders. It is estimated that as many as a million illegal immigrants have entered the United States since Joe Biden became President on January 20th. It is hard to justify taking large amounts of land out of production while flooding the country with large numbers of people. It is a recipe for disaster. While they say it is necessary to take the land out of production to restore the balance of nature and population, and prevent overuse of the land, it will severely cripple the country’s ability to provide food and jobs for its people and the large number of illegal immigrants flowing into the country. If they want to reduce land use, they need to curb the inflow of illegal immigrants. They can not reduce the land use while increasing the population. It continues to show that they have no unified policy but support a wide variety of conflicting goals.

 

Tenth Sunday of Pentecost- Jul 25

22 Jul

Reaching the Lost in your neighborhood-Pentecost is a good time to renew your resolve to reach those who have never heard the Gospel. While many Christians still think of the United States as a Christian nation, since the 1960’s, many children have grown up with no contact with the church. Many families don’t attend church and usually won’t send their children to Sunday School but will allow them to attend neighborhood activities. Many members have no idea that many of their neighbors have no church connection. The best place to start is where they are. Now is a good time to begin planning ways to reach those in your neighborhood who have never heard the Gospel. While many Christians feel that unbelievers are generally resistant to the Gospel, most have never heard the Gospel and see no reason to attend church, but would if they had a reason to.

We are reaching a real financial crisis due to Covid. Many businesses were closed for so long because of 
the virus. Now that they are opening, they cannot get enough workers. Many people are making more on 
unemployment because of the Covid bonus, than they made while they were working. Many don’t want to go 
back to work because they will have to take a sizable drop in income. Many businesses are having to cut 
back hours or services or both. Many businesses are even closing because they cannot get enough workers. 
Some conservative States have started refusing the federal subsidy for unemployment and dropping their 
benefits down to pre-Covid levels. As a result, employment is rapidly increasing in those States, while 
those States that still pay the Covid bonus are continuing to experience low employment. The longer people
 receive government support, the less likely they will want to work. That has been the problem with our
welfare system for so long. They have tried to fix it to encourage people to work but three generations 
have lived off government subsidy and don’t want to have to work for a living.

A-AV  I was struck by how things have not changed in 150 years. Liberals feel the average person is not capable of running their life and need guidance and protection from a strong government. In the early 1800’s, those same people said that slaves were better off on plantations because they were not capable of taking care of themselves. They needed the guidance and protection of the slave owner. They feel they are better than everyone else and know what people need, even if the people don’t want what they are offering. For instance, while the majority of people in the United States oppose abortion, liberals continue to push for free abortion paid for by the taxpayer because they feel we need it. They continue to sabotage democracy through high taxes and heavy regulation to convince people that capitalism is a failure and a strong socialist government is needed to solve all our problems. Schools are moving from educating children to think for themselves to indoctrinating them to think the teacher knows everything and they should accept what they are taught without questioning it. The media is pushing its agenda and censoring their opponents so the public only hears one side of the story. The Constitution is based on the idea that no one alone is capable of ruling themselves and absolutely no one is capable of running the lives of others. It is only people that seek God’s guidance, who are capable of ruling themselves. History continues to show that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Any politician that says he knows better than you how to run your life should be voted out of office immediately, because he is lying and is intent on stealing your freedom and your property.

The framers of the Constitution did not think about term limits because those who served had to take time out from their private lives to serve for minimal pay. It was seen as a burden that was undertaken reluctantly and temporarily to serve the country before returning to their private life. It has become to many, a career that they use to milk the country for what they can get. Many have become insanely rich through the perks that they receive while serving. That is why they hated President Trump so much. He took no pay and in spite of what they said about him, he put the country before his own private ambitions. Congress put term limits on the President to prevent any President from becoming too powerful. Now it is time to do the same with Congress. Congress will probably not do it on their own so the people will probably have to get an amendment to the Constitution enacted by the States. In the meantime, voters can limit their power by voting them out of office after two terms. That will prevent them from gaining too much power and will force them to live under the laws they enact. It will also go a long way in reducing the national debt with the money saved from Congressional pensions.

Ninth Sunday of Pentecost-July 18

16 Jul

Personal Witness-B  Up until the middle of the last century, the church was often the center of the community. It held Vacation Bible Schools, church dinners, and concerts where many in the community attended. However, few outside the church attend church activities today. If the church is to reach the lost, it must go where they are. In addition, church members must be trained to reach out to those around them and establish contacts that will enable them to recognize needs and respond to them. The early church attracted new members when unbelievers saw the love they had for each other and those around them, however the church today has isolated itself and does not provide opportunities for unbelievers to see that love.

 

Church Ministry-I-B

16 Jul

While some churches take up special offerings to help Social Service organizations, most churches ignore the organizations all together requiring the organizations to by-pass the church and appeal to their members directly. That creates conflict between the churches and the para church organizations as they both compete for member contributions. This division deprives the organizations of the money and personnel needed to do their job effectively, requiring them to divert personnel and resources to raising their support. It also deprives the churches of a vital training ground to train members in ministering to unbelievers.

 

 

Social Strife-2-G

15 Jul

I find it interesting how difficult it is for some people to connect the dots. Liberals are repealing laws designed to protect homeowners who are protecting their family and their homes, they want to take away your guns so you can’t protect yourself, and they want to defund the police so there will be less police to defend you. This hurts minorities the most since the cities pull police out of minority areas to avoid conflict. Liberal politicians tell the police not to interfere with rioters and mobilize the media against police pressuring the courts to convict police to avoid further rioting whether the officers are guilty or not. As a result, police are afraid to enter situations that may be used against them and avoid potentially dangerous situations. That encourages rioters to attack police since they know the police either aren’t allowed to fight back, or are afraid to. In addition, liberal courts let criminals off with very little punishment, so it becomes easier to commit crimes without fear of being caught or being punished. That makes you an easy target for crime and assault. In fact, crime and murders have skyrocketed in areas controlled by liberals because criminals know that they are less likely to be caught or prosecuted. Yet the voters continue to vote these people back into office. Is it really that hard to see what direction things are headed? As another round of elections comes up, maybe it is time for a change.
