The Truth About a Negative Spirit

That’s what Christians do . . .

In 1973 the Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies.  Since then, we have killed more than the entire population of Canada.  And it it continues.  A woman's choice?  Half of those who have died in their mothers' wombs have been women.  They didn't have a choice.  It is called abortion.    


Emerging or Absolute, which Jesus do you follow?

The right of succession is a powerful thing.  Youth and excitement contend that we should not be denied something exciting!  But youngsters, left to themselves, will usually break the rules...and sometimes even a body part.


The Arms Dealer

Ephesians 6:12:  For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.      The two Generals met at the middle of the battlefield to discuss the terms of a peace treaty. Unbeknownst to them, an arms dealer lay hidden in the bushes, rifle at hand, ready to make sure peace did not prevail.           As the Generals were about to shake hands the arms dealer took aim at an unsuspecting infantryman and squeezed the trigger. Assuming the other side had fired the shot, the man standing next to him opened fire on the opposition. The battlefield erupted in gunfire, both sides believing the other had violated the cease fire agreement. They had no way of knowing they had been used as pawns in a chess match. Sneaking away under the cover of gunfire and foliage, the arms dealer retreated to safety.         The war would last four years and claim the lives of more than ten thousand men and women. During that time the arms dealer sold more than three hundred thousand weapons to both sides, making millions. His plan had worked perfectly: get the soldiers to fight amongst themselves for as long as he could. He couldn’t have cared less about the casualties, or the lives of countless families that were destroyed. All he cared about was making money…any way he could.    


ACLU: Communisim is the Goal (part 2)

  Now let's break it down. What do you suppose the Framers of the US Constitution -- a document expressly designed to limit the powers of federal government -- intended with the word "Congress"? Did they mean State government? Municipal government? Your local school district? Your third grade teacher?


Gratifying Me

How many times does an idea take hold in our mind that eventually expands to take a form that is exciting and maybe even altruistic in nature. This idea can expand from a single thought that comes from; observing something that needs changed, or seeing a problem that needs remedied, or maybe even seeing an opportunity to create something, to a sequential and verifiable group of ideas. This group of ideas can even turn into a full fledge solution. How exciting to come up with a solution, especially when it involves helping others. What began with one single idea then progressed to a final conclusion can be so gratifying. How rewarding, how exciting!
