Atheism

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on December 7, 2021 by andelino

There is a passage in the Bible that helps followers of Jesus to understand why some people are atheist/agnostic and why we cannot persuade them otherwise. The reason may humble us. 

“The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 2:14)

This passage rebukes atheism, but it also reveals to us the central difference between those of us who believe in God and those who do not. We are given no reason to hold ourselves above atheists, for we are not the authors of our own faith. We are, instead, the recipients of a free gift, having done nothing to earn it.

Guns, Ammunition & Bible

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on January 12, 2021 by andelino

Have you got your gun yet? Millions of your neighbors have. Americans have always loved their guns, but lately they are loading up more than ever.

U.S. civilians lead the world in private gun ownership: “They own an estimated 270 million guns—nine privately owned firearms for every 10 people.”

Precise gun sales figures don’t exist, but firearm manufacturers know the score. Because of exploding demand, they simply can’t keep the shelves stocked. Sturm, Ruger and Co. received more orders in the first quarter of this year than the number of guns it made in all of 2011. Smith & Wesson said its backlog at the end of the second quarter was worth nearly $400 million, more than double the same time last year.

The firearms industry grew 66 percent in economic impact (job creation and tax payments) between 2008 and 2011. And the number of background checks linked to buying firearms is soaring: 1.7 million in March—up 20 percent from March last year. It was the 22nd month in a row that this number rose. Numbers are still well over a million a month.

Clearly, people are concerned. Many are anxious over economic instability and the potential for societal breakdown. As local, state and federal budgets are cut back, public services, including law enforcement, are being trimmed. A growing number of people just don’t think the government will protect them. Also, more and more believe the world is coming to an end and are bracing themselves to survive doomsday.

Added to these fears is growing nervousness that politicians are about to enact stricter gun control. It’s a showdown:

“On one side are people who say that keeping guns out of people’s hands makes everyone safer. On the other are those who believe that taking guns away only leaves law-abiding people vulnerable to criminals who will get them illegally.”

As society grows more dangerous, they argue, the only source of protection they can really have confidence in is themselves. Are you one of these people? What is your source of protection? This is an important question, because those who lack protection are about to find themselves in a world of trouble.

Given current trends, it’s not difficult to see why people are concerned about breakdowns in social order. All around we see clues that it is unraveling. In an economically depressive atmosphere, it seems anger and hostility are always simmering, ready to boil over. Stories are numbering in the hundreds of gangs of young people committing random acts of “terror, stealing, vandalizing, intimidating, assaulting, even raping and killing.”

Racial provocations and violence have grown routine. Soaring welfare dependency means that any disruption in benefits—whether from budget cuts, a government shutdown or default—could mobilize an army of discontents overnight. A currency meltdown—made increasingly likely by reckless government monetary policy—would transform the country.

On top of these dangers are the possibilities of unforeseen disaster—a terrorist attack, weather catastrophe, major earthquake or disease pandemic. All have the potential to not only bring a high body count, but also to upset the infrastructure and technology our society depends on—the systems that enable food distribution, electricity production and delivery, communication, waste management and so on. The resulting tribulations could spark significant unrest.

Little wonder that people are seeking out ways to protect themselves.

Attorney Lin Wood, who has filed multiple lawsuits to overturn the United States presidential elections, is calling on Republicans to stock up on guns and ammo. “Better to be safe than sorry,” he posted to Twitter on December 13.

“Make sure you have plenty of water, food, flashlights & batteries, candles, radio, 2nd Amendment supplies, and a plan to meet with leaders of your communities. Remember we only have 1 President at a time. Our leader is @realDonaldTrump, not Biden.”

This message came two days after the Supreme Court “refused” to hear a Texas lawsuit that could have overturned the election, and one day before the Electoral College voted to elect Joe Biden to the presidency.

President Donald Trump and his legal team have had more than 50 lawsuits dismissed by America’s courts over the past month, yet he continues to press on in his quest to expose widespread voter fraud. In addition to the Supreme Court refusing to hear Texas’s lawsuit, a Georgia court dismissed a joint lawsuit from Wood and former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell earlier this month. This lawsuit asked that Dominion voting machines be examined for evidence that they were used to tamper with vote tallies.

Both President Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani are optimistic they can expose enough voter fraud to keep President Trump and his administration in office. But about half of Republicans believe the U.S. election was stolen by widespread voter fraud, and many are growing concerned there will never be another free and fair election in America again.

These fears—along with concerns about covid-19—are prompting Americans to stockpile toilet paper, groceries, guns, ammunition and other supplies.

Even before the November 3 presidential election, USA Today polls indicated that half of all Americans were stockpiling food and other supplies. And Smith & Wesson’s CEO said in a September call with investors that approximately 40 percent of its gun sales this year were going to first-time buyers.

That indicates the people buying guns in 2020 are not doing so because they want to take up skeet shooting. They are concerned about pandemics, race riots, and the specter of civil war. Like Lin Wood, they feel it is better to be safe than sorry.

So they stock up on water, food, flashlights, batteries and Second Amendment supplies. Yet these stockpilers underestimate the potential severity of America’s situation.

God has placed President Trump in office to give Americans an unmerited amount of time to repent of the sins that are bringing down the nation. But if Americans do not repent, the nation will descend into civil war.

In Ezekiel 5, God reveals that one third of the nation’s population will die from the pestilence, famine and violence that result from civil war. That equals 110 million people. Such devastation has never occurred in a nation from the time of Ezekiel until now, and it is not the type of calamity a gun can save you from.

Only divine protection can ensure we will not fall prey to the destruction described in these scriptures!

Joe Biden Quoting Scripture

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 31, 2020 by andelino

Does Quoting Scripture Get Biden Off The Hook? No, Here’s Why…
by Shane Idleman

Though I don’t think he actually wrote one word of it, in a last-minute attempt to convince Christians to vote for him, Joe Biden peppered his newest op-ed with Scriptures. Ironically, what Biden and others miss is that the power of God’s Word is in the application of it, not merely in “quoting” it.

James 1:22 warns, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” James 4:17 adds, “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” This is why the application of God’s Word is vital—it divides the “truth from the error.” 

Many politicians use religious talk and twist the Scriptures to support unbiblical initiatives. For example, while wooing votes from concerned citizens, leaders will express their religious convictions and quote the Bible, but when the cameras are off they’ll vote for partial-birth abortion and against protecting babies who survive late-term abortions. “Judge what they do, rather than what they say.”

They’ll also use “love your neighbor” to validate sin. “If you truly love someone,” they say, “you won’t disagree with them.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, we must extend compassion but without compromise.

Warning, confronting, challenging, advising, and admonishing are all characteristic of genuine love. Parents, for example, warn, confront, challenge, and admonish daily. Truly misled or self-serving individuals would wrongly attribute these traits to “hate-speech.”

This is why President Trump is supported by so many Christians. His policies line up with Scripture. I’m not too worried about mean Tweets, but I’m extremely worried about “burning babies to death via saline abortions or by removing them from the womb limb by limb.”

I’m not as concerned about harsh statements as I am about the harsh treatment of children via “sex trafficking”, something that the left is almost silent on, unless you consider Kamala Harris’ support for “legalizing prostitution,” as a former prostitute, which would certainly bring a massive increase in the already staggering numbers of children being trafficked.

This election is not about two different men, but two different Americas.

For instance, why didn’t any Democrat legislator vote to confirm the highly qualified Supreme Court Justice, Amy Coney Barrett? Because she adheres to God’s Word and does not embrace their narrative. Not for any lack of qualification, but merely for political gain. What a tragedy. Gone are the days of voting for qualified candidates. This is clearly a spiritual battle.

Let’s be very clear on this: “A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both” (Dwight D. Eisenhower). Historically, we know that God judged those nations who continually tolerated sin; wrong choices have devastating consequences.

Arnold Toynbee, who completed A Study of History in 1961, said, “Of the 22 civilizations that have appeared in history, 19 of them collapsed when they reached the moral state America is in today.” And that was written decades ago. What would he say now?

What a person does is just as important, if not more so, than what they say (Matthew 21:29-31). For example, parents, if your son or daughter dates someone who encourages sexual sin, lasciviousness, and a casual acceptance of abortion, if their relationship leads to a pregnancy, are you going to care if the person they are dating “quotes” Scripture?

As a father, I can tell you I don’t care if they can recite the entire New Testament from memory—they are not getting near my child. The same principle applies here with Biden’s “deceptive” editorial.

No, Biden’s quoting Scripture does not get him off the hook, but it does reinforce the fact that “sin is deceptive.” Satan quoted Scripture in the desert when he tempted Christ, and I can assure you, Satan lost that battle. Many of us talk as if God is real, but act as if He were not.

Sadly, many people today who hear God’s Word simply scoff at it, or else they twist it to fit their narrative. You can listen to an example of Scripture being twisted to fit a sinful narrative in an interview I did on Fox News with a pastor who embraces “same-sex marriage.”

The big question for me is why are many Christians allowing the media, fake news, and fake narratives to influence them? Our beliefs should reflect God’s heart rather than the world’s influence. If your vote aligns with Hollywood more than the Holy Spirit, you might want to check that. We don’t want their values, so why would we want their opinion?

I would also add to this list the celebrity pastors who are trying to convince the evangelical world that we can vote for a person and yet have no responsibility for their actions, or that we can decide to not vote at all, as if we can somehow just decide to absolve ourselves of our obligation to “Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” (Jeremiah 29:7). If it does not line up squarely with the Word of God, even if it comes from the mouths of angels, we are to reject it.

As I said in a recent article, we can no longer hide behind the excuse, “I don’t want to get involved.” As citizens, we are given the privilege, for now, to place people in positions of leadership. Whether we like it or not, we are involved. Millions are not registered to vote, and millions of registered voters stay home.

We’ll stand in line to see a movie, but we won’t stand in line to vote and elect leaders who will affect the direction of our country (Biden or Trump will make nearly 4,000 appointments during their term). This makes a statement about what we value—and isn’t it sad? When people who can vote for President Trump don’t, they, by default, cast a vote for the opposing party.

I thank God for Christians who are involved and who influence America’s political climate based on Scripture because “light and darkness, right and wrong, good and evil, truth and error are incompatibles, when they compromise it is the light, the right, the good, and the truth that are damaged” (W. Graham Scroggie).

Truth cannot be compromised—God blesses and honors the peacemaker, but not the religious “hypocrite” who quotes God’s Word but doesn’t live by it. Take time today and listen below if you need encouragement and hope.

With this being the most important election in our lifetime, we made my book “One Nation Above God” available as a free download here. It is a great resource to share with family and friends who are on the fence and for those questioning America’s past.

Trump’s Strange Book

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on June 6, 2020 by andelino

Donald Trump’s Strange Book.

President Trump visited St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington to hold up a Bible straight toward the heavens, a completely natural way to hold a Bible, in a clearly authentic demonstration of his faith and definitely not a staged photo op.

Bill Clinton’s Strange Book

Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, though, was nonplussed, saying she was confused by the strange book Trump had brought to church.

“What is that weird book? We’ve literally never seen one before,” she said in a CNN interview.

“No real Christian reveres a book like that. Well, maybe the Communist Manifesto or something. But not an old-looking leather book. It looks like one of those religious books, and Jesus wasn’t about religion. He was about causing societal upheaval and burning things down.”

Some Episcopalians suggested it was a “cookbook” and that Trump was only offering to bring something to the next church “potluck,” similar to Chef Obama’s book “101 Ways To Wok Your Dog.”

Others said it was a copy of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”, a revered religious text among the Left.

But in the end, Episcopal believers couldn’t figure out what the book was and were slightly frightened by it.

Meanwhile, Mike Pence was frantically searching the White House for his Bible only to see Trump on TV. “I told him to ask me before he borrows it for a stunt like this,” Pence muttered as he breathed a sigh of relief.

Trump’s church walk was a strong move
The party that bore false witness on Trump to destroy him should not pretend they care what the Bible says

Definition of Pro-Choice

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2019 by andelino

 

Abortion has been a hotly debated “topic” in American culture at least for the past forty years. Proponents on both sides wave statistics and viewpoints that many sincerely believe to be the only right way. For the sake of clarity, let’s define the terms “PRO-CHOICE” and “ANTI-CHOICE.”

For the purposes of this post, “PRO-CHOICE” is defined as “the belief that a woman should have the legal right to abort her unborn child at any point in the pregnancy.” Pro-choice advocates believe abortion is a “personal” decision and should not be limited by the government or anyone else.

For the purposes of this post, “ANTI-CHOICE” is defined as “the belief that every human life is sacred and no one, including the mother, has the right to end an innocent life.” Anti-choice advocates hold the view that life from the moment of “conception” should be protected.

I’m not arguing the “morality” of PRO-CHOICE or the “venality” of ANTI- CHOICE because like everything else in life it depends on your “faith” believe.

If you are a Bible believing Christian, you are someone who has accepted God’s offer of forgiveness through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Salvation is a gift of God through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ (John 3:16-18; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9). What we believe about other things is a matter of growth, not of salvation. However, 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “If any man/women be in Christ, he/she is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” When we give our lives to Christ, God begins to change us: “our way of thinking and our way of behaving” (see Isaiah 55:7). Our bodies become the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19). Our minds are renewed through the truth of God’s Word (Romans 12:1-2). Our attitudes, perspectives, and behaviors gradually change to be more like those of Christ (Romans 8:29; Galatians 5:22).

This transformation doesn’t happen overnight. Many Christians are still what the apostle Paul called “carnal” (1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Romans 8:6). Carnal Christians trust in Jesus for salvation, but they still think, act, and react like the world. Often, they are new to the faith or simply have not allowed the Holy Spirit free access to every area of their hearts. They are trying to live the Christian life in their own strength, while still being heavily influenced by the world’s way of thinking. The carnal mind has not been fully renewed by the Word of God and still seeks compromise with the world (James 4:4). Carnal Christians allow the persuasive viewpoints of the ungodly to sway their opinions on many things, including abortion. Spiritual growth requires us to shed our old ways of thinking as we become more like Christ. We begin to see things the way God does, and the closer to Him we become, the less we agree with the world’s system (Psalm 1:1-2). If a person continually refuses to allow the Word of God to transform his thinking, chances are great that he is not really a Bible believing Christian (Romans 8:14).

“Pro-choice” advocates state that the Bible does not address abortion, so the decision should be the individual’s. While it is true that the term “abortion” does not appear in the Bible, the principles about the “value of life” are there. In Exodus 21:22-23, God wrote into His Law protection for the “unborn.” If a pregnant woman was injured, causing her to lose her child, then the one who caused the injury was to be executed: “a life for a life.” The phrase “life for a life” says a lot. God considers the life of the “unborn” just as valuable as that of a grown person.

God said to Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you” (Jeremiah 1:5). It was God who created him for a specific purpose. Psalm 139:13-16 gives us the clearest picture of God’s viewpoint on the unborn. David writes, “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. . . . My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret. . . .Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, before one of them came to be.”

The Bible is clear that all “human” life is created by God for His purpose and His pleasure (Colossians 1:16), and a Christian who truly wants to know the heart of God must align his or her viewpoint with God’s. When we start justifying “evil” according to our understanding, we “dilute” the truth of God’s Word. When we rename adultery an “affair,” homosexuality an “alternative lifestyle,” and murder of the unborn a “choice,” we are headed for serious trouble. We cannot “redefine” what it means to follow Christ. Jesus said we must first “deny ourselves” (Matthew 16:24; Luke 9:23). Part of denying ourselves is letting go of comfortable “lies” the world has fed us. We have to let go of our own understanding and allow God to change us (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Some “pro-choice” advocates argue that they are not “pro-abortion.” They say they hate abortion, but support a woman’s right to choose. This makes as much sense as saying that you personally hate “rape,” but support a man’s “right” to commit it. The rhetoric sounds nice—the mention of “choice” makes it more appealing—but underneath is a direct “conflict” with God’s viewpoint in Scripture.

“Pro-choice” advocates often state that their position is “compassionate” and that pro-lifers don’t care about the woman or her child. This argument is a “red herring.” Whether pro-lifers “care” or not is irrelevant, just as it is irrelevant whether those opposed to robbery “care” about the banks being robbed. Robbery is against God’s “moral” law. So is abortion. And that’s the issue.

The Bible is clear. Since God is the “Creator” of human life, only He can determine who lives or dies. And every person who claims the name of Christ has the obligation to make certain his or her views line up with His Word. Is it possible for a born-again Christian to be “pro-choice”? Yes. Is it likely that such a person will remain “pro-choice”? Not if he or she is allowing God’s Word to “transform and renew” his or her mind (Romans 12:2).

Proper sexual “education” is the key in preventing “unwanted” pregnancies. If you’re “pro-life”, you should also be for all means necessary to prevent an “unwanted” pregnancy. As a Bible believing Christian I cannot make these wrenching personal “life and death” decisions for others. I believe that a woman has a right, responsibility, and requirement to choose: “a choice to keep her knees together or rear a child.” That personal, practical, and profound choice would “solve most of the abortion problems.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky,  author of “Crime and Punishment” said, “If God is dead, then nothing is morally wrong.” But God is not dead; I spoke with Him this morning. Those who kill the “innocent” will also meet with Him!

No, You Cannot be a “Pro-Choice” Christian

 

Nowhere in the Bible

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2016 by andelino

Nowhere in the Bible 01

Sista Whoopi Goldberg voiced her support of divorce as a “good and important option” for many Christians, since it is found “nowhere in the Bible or in the “Ten Commandments.”

Goldberg began the segment by bringing up Khloe Kardashian’s “split” with husband Lamar Odom.

As a Christian, Kardashian doesn’t “believe” in divorce, Whoopi explained, “but she realized she had to do it for her own mental and emotional well-being and thinks God’s okay with that.”

“I mean, why wouldn’t God be okay with that?” Goldberg prompted. “It’s nowhere in the Bible.”

Apparently, Goldberg never read as far as “Matthew, Mark or Luke’s” gospel accounts, which all report that Jesus taught that “whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her.”

Co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Sunny Hostin quickly “corrected” that statement by citing “Malachi and Matthew” and quoting Jesus.

Goldberg was adamant that God had “no opinion whatsoever” on divorce, saying that He had handed down ten, “and not twelve,” Commandments, and none of them “outlawed” divorce or abortion.

“I live the Ten Commandments,” Goldberg said. “Those are the words of God and, to me, that – that doesn’t cover divorce.”

That’s not to say all the “View” ladies agreed with the Bible.

Divorced “twice,” Shepherd found the Good Book a “great blueprint” but added “I think God also gave us common sense.”

“‘Cause it doesn’t say divorce if you’re getting abused,” she reasoned without acknowledging that someone can “leave a spouse” without divorcing him or her.

“But even without abuse, divorce should be allowed,” she added, before bringing up the issue of children.

“My parents … stayed together for the kids but it affected me to this day what I heard, what I saw,” she said again, without acknowledging the adverse effects for kids from divorced homes.

Co-host Joy Behar went another step further.

“What if you’re just unhappily married?” Behar wanted to know. “You’re just not happily married anymore, why can’t you get a divorce?” 

As the “lone” voice at the table, Hostin chimed in “because you’re not supposed to.”

“When you get married, you go into it knowing that divorce – or you should go into it, in my opinion, knowing that divorce is not an option,” she stressed.

Nowhere in the Bible 02

Goldberg disagreed that God was “against” divorce – again.

“The God that I, as I understand it, gave you freedom of will to make a decision, and if you’ve made a bad decision, to make a change,” she argued.

This time she “cited” the Ten Commandments, as a “blueprint.”

“I live the Ten Commandments,” Goldberg began. “Those are the words of God and, to me, that – that doesn’t cover divorce.”

Despite the “arguments” thrown at her, Hostin stuck to her guns, “insisting” that Christians shouldn’t “enter marriage thinking there is an escape hatch.”

“I don’t want to get preachy but God is a loving God, a forgiving God,” she said, “but when you talk about marriage, the Church believes that God is the author of marriage and establishes it as a permanent union forming an unbreakable bond.”

Behar challenged again, “So you wouldn’t ever get a divorce, Sunny? … Really? What if he – what if he cheats on you with everyone on this panel?”

Even then, Hostin responded, “It’s not a deal breaker.”

Again, Behar tried to probe more into Hostin’s thoughts by asking hypothetically, “You’re a young woman and you realize you made a huge mistake. So you’re going to spend the next 50 years with the same dog?” 

“Yes,” Hostin responded. “Because you made – you made the commitment.”

Exasperated, Behar said, “I don’t mean to be judgmental but that’s crazy.”

This isn’t the “first” time the View lades have “interpreted” the Bible.

Last fall, they determined the Bible said “nothing about abortion.”

The Bible gives two “clear” grounds for divorce: (1) “sexual immorality” (Matthew 5:32; 19:9) and (2) “abandonment by an unbeliever” (1 Corinthians 7:15).

Even in these “two” instances, though, divorce is not “required or even encouraged.”

The most that can be said is that “sexual immorality and abandonment” are grounds for divorce.

“Confession, forgiveness, reconciliation, and restoration” are always the “first” steps.

Divorce should only be viewed “as a last resort.”

Why the Gun is Civilization

Why the Gun Is Civilization 01

Why the Gun is Civilization
by Marko Kloos March 23, 2007

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force.

If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force.

Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion.

Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single gay guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats.

The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a mugger to do his job.

That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat–it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed.

People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society.

A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways.

Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.

People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst.

The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.

The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weightlifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.

When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded.

I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

Muhammad Art Exhibit

Qu'ran 00

The first annual “Muhammad Art Exhibit & Contest” was held on Sunday, May 3, at the Curtis Culwell Center, 5-7 pm, Central Time, in the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas.

It was hosted by “human rights and free-speech activist” Pamela Geller and her organization, the “American Freedom Defense Initiative” (AFDI).

The exhibit featured images of Islam’s prophet “Muhammad” in both historical and contemporary settings, showcasing the top 200 artistic “renditions” that were submitted for consideration.

The winning cartoon by Bosch Fawstin, an Ex-Muslim received the top prize of $10,000.

The keynote speaker was Geert Wilders, a member of The Netherlands Parliament. Wilders led the fight for “de-Islamization” in his country, which has faced many of the same problems with Muslim “assimilation” as have other European countries, including the advent of controversial “no-go zones” inaccessible to non-Muslims, including public officials.

Pamela Geller came under “attack” from the sharia-compliant media for “provoking the Islamic terror attack in Texas.”

Fortunately, Geller knows how to respond: “Islam is the problem. Terrorism is a tenet of Islamic jihad.”

Does anybody remember how “Islam” came into being?

Qu'ran 02

The image above shows how Islam was “born” into this world. Later Muhammad would “polish” his turd and called it “Islam” with plagiarized quotes from the “Torah” and the “Bible” complimented with his own lust for “violence and oppression.”

Qu'ran 03

And that is the “story” of Islam and how the Muslin “faithful” were created.

Obama’s Christmas Message

Obama Christmas Message 04

President Barack Obama “thinks” that Americans should use the “Christmas” season and “the good book” to understand the importance of “illegal” immigration reform.

“If we’re serious about the Christmas season, now is the time to reflect on those who are ‘illegal’ strangers in our midst and remember what it was like to be a ‘legal’ stranger,” Obama said during an immigration town hall in Nashville.

Obama then “reminded” the audience that the “Christmas” season was about a “soon to be mother” and “a husband of modest means” who were looking for a “place” to stay, but there was no “room” at the Inn.

“As I said the day that I announced these executive actions that we were once ‘legal’ strangers too, and part of what my Muslim faith teaches me is to look upon the ‘illegal’ stranger as part of myself,” he said.

Obama explained that it was important to set up a “fair” legal system that “reflected human nature” and “the wisdom of the American people” instead of one that separated families.

“Now, does that mean everybody is going to listen to me, on the other side,” he said.

“Not necessarily, they’re pretty sure I’m an illegal immigrant.”

After the audience laughed, Obama added, “That was a joke.”

Obama then reminded the audience that he was of “Irish” heritage pointing out that one of his “ancestors” was a “boot” maker in Ireland.

The Irish, he added, were once “discriminated” against when they “emigrated” from Ireland in large numbers.

“Read your history and look at how people talked about Irish immigrants,” Obama quipped.

Obama also pointed out that many Americans who opposed “illegal” immigration reform should remember where their ancestors came from.

“Look, immigration, as I said before, has always elicited passion and it’s ironic because unless you are a member of an American Native Tribe, you came here ‘legally’ from somewhere else,” Obama reminded his critics.

Obama said that people who asserted that they came to America the “right way” didn’t have to deal with “my” administration’s “bureaucratic difficulties” that immigrants have to deal with today.

“It isn’t always neat and orderly,” he asserted.

“What happens is once ‘illegal’ folks are here, we kinda forget that we used to be ‘legal’ there,” he explained, asking people to put their feet in their shoes and ‘show some empathy.’”

“And during this Christmas season that’s a good place to start.”

Obama then “mistakenly” attributed the slogan of “throwing stones in glass houses” to the Bible.

“I think the good book says, you know, ‘Don’t throw stones in glass houses,’ or make sure that we’re lookin’ at the log in our eye, before we’re pulling out the moat in other folk’s eyes,” he said.

“I think that’s as true in politics as it is in life.”

Obama told Sandra Sobieraj Westfall from “People Magazine” in a seven-page cover story that he and his wife, Michelle, do not “give” their two young daughters “Christmas” presents.

Muslims don’t “believe” in Christmas. Therefore, they do not “give” out presents. Muslim scholars have said that Muslims “must not” celebrate Christmas.

By participation in “Christmas,” it is possible that a “Muslim” slowly may lose his or her “consciousness” of this basic point of difference between “Islam and Christianity.”

Muslims must be very “careful” in this matter.

The greatest “danger” is for Muslims “next” generation, who may slowly lose their “Islamic” faith in the oneness or unity of “Allah” and may start believing in Jesus as “more than a prophet and servant of Allah.”

Well done, my “Muslim” brother. Allah is mighty “proud” of you and has “reserved” 72 of the very finest “virgins” for you upon your arrival at “Allah’s Whorehouse.”

Heavenly Residence 00

Former New York City mayor Michael R. Bloomberg believes he’s going “straight” to heaven after working to eliminate “smoking, obesity,” and his efforts to “promote gun control.”

Heavenly Residence 01

Here’s the full context of Bloomberg’s heaven quotation:

“Mr. Bloomberg was introspective as he spoke, and seemed both restless and wistful. When he sat down for the interview, it was a few days before his 50th college reunion. His mortality has started dawning on him, at 72. And he admitted he was a bit taken aback by how many of his former classmates had been appearing in the “in memoriam” pages of his school newsletter. But if he senses that he may not have as much time left as he would like, he has little doubt about what would await him at a Judgment Day. Pointing to his work on gun safety, obesity and smoking cessation, he said with a grin: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

As for the “gun control” push, Bloomberg wants gun rights advocates to “fear” him.

He plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide “grass-roots network” to motivate low information voters who feel strongly about “curbing” gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually “out muscle” the National Rifle Association.

“We’ve got to make them afraid of us,” he said.

Bloomberg plans to merge his “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” and “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America” into a new group called “Every town for Gun Safety.”

Maybe the four “blood moons” encouraged Michael to do some “soul” searching of “late” to purchase a “heavenly residence” in the great hereafter.

Has “communism” added a touch of “deism” to its Jewish “atheism” as a sort of “insurance” policy?

Heavenly Residence 05

Since Bloomberg is a “non-believing” Jew he must be “quoting” the Old Testament.

I think the New Testament application is “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven,” unless he donates heavily to gun control.

This should at least dispel the “outdated” belief that you can’t “buy” your way into heaven.

According to the Bible, Jesus died for “sinners” who didn’t have enough money to “purchase” heaven on their own.

Heavenly Residence 02

Sorry Michael, I don’t believe the “Apostle of Affluence” theory.

Heavenly Residence 04

Now, go in “peace” and spread your “gospel” to the “one” percenter.
