Having Faith in God is Universal

This was inspired by a letter to a dear friend.

A man named Garner Ted Armstrong of “The Plain Truth” program ministry,  like his Dad Herbert W. Armstrong founder of the Worldwide Church of God, would preach on television when I was young saying that in the future people would be more about me and taking not giving, well we have arrived, and he was so right!  These days it’s “me” everything when you look around at what this world has become, still there are many good people here or another thing my Dad used to tell me, is that if there were at least two good (faithful) people God wouldn’t finally destroy this world.  And, some people are waking up all the time to what has happened to us as a race of beings, while still others are taking all they can robbing each other blind.

I said earlier how my Dad would say he would be here as long as God needed him here, which now reminds me of a man, a world leader in the Middle East, this man I admired and still look upon as a good and great man, how his wife would worry incessantly about the fact that his security director would tell him to wear a bullet proof vest when out in public and he would tell her my “darling wife,” “what difference would that make when it is God who will decide the appointed moment that I will leave this world, and nothing can change that.”  Faith in God that is what that man had like my Dad!  This man who was a great leader of “Egypt- Anwar Sadat a Muslim,” a man I admired for his courage and the suffering he did most of his life; to then become a noble and great leader who attempted with others of his time to make peace in the Middle East, but most important to me he was a man with “faith in God” the one God, the Father almighty, the Creator of all things.  When his moment did come to leave this world he was looking up to the heavens and smiling watching his air force jets flying overhead in formation; as some in his own military betrayed him and took his life, but as far as God is concerned his mission was completed!

What Makes a True Believer

 I’ve decided to add some clarification to my own statements contained herein from previous comments to another. If you think my purpose is to criticize you or I’m beginning to think that I can judge you or anyone, I state categorically that I can judge no one! I can however defend my own faith and more importantly who that faith is based solely upon. My rock is Jesus Christ as I have clearly stated in much of my writing. What I see happening with you and many others throughout the human race is an attack upon my faith and beliefs directly by trying to extract what fits your own agenda or if you will belief system! Not unlike the manipulation of some other well know religions which I’m not going to accept by anyone! Any attempt to incorporate Jesus Christ into some philosophy or even New Age Science and program is not allowed according to scripture but even aside from the scripture it is well know that true believers in Jesus Christ as the Savior and Redeemer is fundamentally indivisible! There can be no belief in Jesus the Living Christ as one’s Savior and path to Everlasting Life while simultaneously projecting another faith or everlasting life system, one has to cancel the other out! You can’t have both, as I have said plainly that the Scriptures are the Living Word of God Himself, and that is where Christian Faith begins and ends, by accepting His Word as the living gospel left with mankind in order to grow in that Faith and Abide in that Faith!

One must either accept it as it stands and have true faith in Jesus Christ as the Messiah and only salvation given to true believers as a “gift” from God to us sinful humans who are imperfect and doomed! That is my Faith, and for anyone to try and hijack a portion of it or twist and concoct it, I will not stand idly by and allow that! We see how there are nefarious persons on this earth that are criminals, heathens, and some of the most vile of our species that have hijacked the original Muslim religion over the centuries and more so in today’s world to manipulate the religion to fit a political ideology or some other corrupted agenda! This has resulted in so much horror and evil which in turn has devastated entire regions along with decimating millions of human beings! Evil finds ways to use that which is good to its own ends, perverting and destroying as it does! Christianity presently has it difficulties, but the basic truth and underlying fact that Jesus Christ was the Messiah is held as the truth to countless people around the planet! There are always going to be some difficulties or defects in the delivery and practice of the faith amongst the masses due to man’s inability to do anything perfect and we are still on earth, not in paradise.

But God made His pact with humanity when He came down as the Son and paid the penalty for all sin committed by every human being by His being crucified on the cross at Calvary. So, it is very basic and simple which is also stated in the scriptures, that He” makes it so that the simplest of minds can understand and believe.” It’s not some complicated formula or science and guru magic! You take it for face value alone and believe or not believe! If a person chooses to believe; that is the beginning of that person’s faith which he or she must grow in, building stronger and more certain as he or she moves forward.   And yes, it is simple but that doesn’t mean it won’t have its challenges as indeed I have stated here today, that Christianity has issues and problems but not with the fundamental teaching but rather the delivery and practice of the Faith, because of people messing up! I won’t let that stop me from following Jesus Christ, which would be akin to throwing the baby out with the bath water! Others may, and in fact you attested to your initial youth upbringing with Christianity, and then you decided that Books and Scriptures and whatever else you decide is not worthy of your attention must go, which has led you to where you are. So in a way you have thrown the baby out with the bath water, deciding on your own what will fit your way of finding salvation or a path to everlasting life!

You can go your merry way and see what it leads you to! But don’t pretend that you are a believer in Jesus Christ! You are not!  If you were you would take all of what comes with that belief and toss aside all these strategies and new age philosophies and whatever, because you wouldn’t need any of that being a believer in the “Christ Jesus!”

Heaven or Hell

This is for you and all

The Gift of Eternal Life for we sinful human beings

I did make it very clear that no one can lay claim to what Jesus Christ was, did and is! He was the Messiah that was prophesied from the time of Abraham and to deny that historical fact and truth is to deny God. This was God’s plan not yours mine or any other humans the devil, nor fallen angels! There is only one truth not multiple truths or possibilities as you would have others believe; instead you pursue lies with half-truth and actual lies or deception! I see through all lies, yes even the most counterfeit of them all who has challenged me for years, the Devil!  You have yielded to his temptations and lies for stature and recognition of self and false claims! You have taken upon yourself to know more than the wisest among us to think you have some ultimate truth of the universe and you have actually diddlysquat! There is only one true God the Creator of all things or there isn’t, you are a believer or a non-believer and in your case to take some pieces that fit another concocted or diametrically opposed philosophy or other belief system in order to make your own system is all a sham and lies! I dare say that what you do is blasphemy and puts your soul in immortal danger of eternal damnation! You are better to take one side or the other, to say you confess that Jesus is whom he was said to be the MESSIAH, or he is not, but this lukewarm nonsense is a travesty and that is something God says in the “living words of the scriptures,” that he would rather we take one side or the other but not to be lukewarm!  Again, I say this one fundamental truth to you and anyone listening, no other human being on this earth ever did or could lay claim to what Jesus Christ did and who he said He was! It is historical fact not maybe or supposes! He was the “Sacrificial Lamb for all Mankind,” in order to take away all man’s sins and cleanse all who accept this GIFT in order that they will be worthy to be in “Gods perfect Holy presence in Heaven eternally!” No other way is available, Jesus said, “I am the way the path and the life!” Therefore, I Lawrence his lowly servant on earth say, any other path leads to darkness!  Heaven or Hell, the choice is your own to make! There will be no multiple planes of existence or alternate worlds, evolution, transmutation or traveling, there is this material world, and there is Heaven and Hell which are the places where “souls” end up forever! Very simple and no mind bending gibberish that you speak of! For your own sake I hope and pray that you see God’s light quickly and turn completely to Him! He can and will forgive you of all transgressions as He will any other human being that accepts Him as the only truth, path and light; that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior! Amen.

BY Faith Alone We Are Saved

What follows is a retort to someone saying that the scriptures don’t matter in following Christ!

The scriptures are the basis of what God did by sending his only begotten Son to implement the salvation of mankind.  The scriptures are God’s living word and the Word is God, they are inseparable. If that doesn’t hold true then nothing matters because there is no truth or meaning in God’s intentions, as they are lost in the wind with imperfect humans!  There must be “the word” that is why God inspired them to be written.  Loving one another is not some form of free-love; it comes from discipline and order, for if you plant crops any which ways then you end up with many weeds and the weeds choke out the good plants before they can mature!  I knew what the Hippie Movement was about from a relative’s first hand involvement with it, and all that got him was a blown mind and afterwards nobody cared as he sank into despair, where was this love one another then?  We have to follow Christ and be on guard to defend ourselves from lies, deceit, jealousy, hatred, and every manner of temptation that exists to run a person off course and into the ditch of despair.  And this world is riddled with sin and destruction, a no win proposition!  We all are doomed sinners, if anyone doesn’t like that they can pretend we are all angels to no avail!  As far as God updating, Jesus Christ said just as He took his last breath, “it is finished.”  Finished means FINISHED, and in reference to everything else He said while on earth, the new and everlasting covenant would be established, with his being the “sacrificial lamb,” so to say that an adjustment needs to be made now is absurd because it would mean that his sacrifice was improper or not enough, and that God made a mistake!  That is an oxymoron if I ever heard one, HOW can God be wrong?  Impossible and that is the bottom line my friend, the score was settled on Calvary and we either have real faith in that or we don’t. The choice is each person’s own choice to make, and it is made through either faith or not believing!

True Absolutism is Unattainable

Jim I can agree with you on some of the points you mention here.  But I also base my belief on history and as the old saying goes those who forget history are doomed to repeat it!  But more importantly in this context we speak of historical evidence that exists and is being added to all the time!  So in a sense our perspective of the facts and truth is evolving as we move forward, but not because we control that fact, but rather that we have been given the opportunity to find eternal life by seeking God and all the truth that is God!  Without God there is no truth, light or eternal life!  Without God there is total separation from that all knowing truth and eternal life!  I agree that we face an apocalyptic juncture not far ahead, but there are opposing forces in this dilemma that will be the reason for this event to occur in the first place.  I for one don’t see this plane of existence as permanent or eternal, as we know from Einstein and others all matter has a half-life or finality build in.  I also agree that the matter of our existence is growing critical and the opposing forces are becoming frenetic which is increasing the misinformation and diversionary factors exponentially.  As you know well, that in this world there are no absolutes and humans are incapable of their own volition of identifying and then securing absolutism by all available means, as we are in a constant state of imperfection, locked into it if you will, and that absolutism can only be achieved by a power outside of our orbit, and even I dare say, beyond our comprehension.  To think otherwise is foolhardy and even wreak-less as that would be like the toy telling the toy maker it knows more than its creator!  Arrogance or rebelliousness can only yield disaster in this kind of affair, and again I reflect on Einstein’s theories of relativity and the time space continuum which has been expanded on since his time here on earth to include Dark matter and Dark energy theories that already with mathematical certainty have disclosed to our modern upstanding that there is matter and energy of the Dark Order or unseen dimension, outside of materialism, that far exceeds all matter and energy in the entire universe of this plane of existence!  And we are limited by this reality we live in to only have the capability to decipher the things of this world not any other!  I want to add that something very profound about this concept was said back thousands of years ago by none other than Jesus Christ.  He stated to the Apostles, “Verily I say to you that there is more in the unseen world than these is in the seen.”  This tells me that man’s collective consciousness and knowledge is now only catching up with something said thousands of years ago!  I conclude from that, that He Jesus was who He claimed to be and was more than a messenger of God, that He was God and came to earth in the flesh to make an everlasting covenant for mankind, to provide the true path to everlasting and perfect Life!  Jesus Christ was the only figure in all of history that can lay claim to what he spoke of and promised to do for all humans who will seek His truth and Salvation.  No other historical figure had been prophesied and lived out those prophecies like Jesus the Christ actually did!  I will conclude that I see our modern time being filled with diversion and confusion like no other before, and this will continue to lead to disaster for individuals and most probably the human race!  You mention evolution but that is not going to achieve neither perfection nor everlastingness, as what will we evolve to if using this material world as the building blocks?  Remember there is no capacity for any humans to achieve absolutism by their own merit or limited capability!  Even realizing more fully our spiritual connection to all of existence will not be in and of itself enough to transcend all imperfection, which would be an absolute!

The Beginning of Something Very Interesting

I like anti-establishment and thinking outside of the box even when it comes to writing! All that politically correct rubbish has gone too far at times and nothing if overdone turns out good! Writing is about imagination and creativity and so I say launch your ship from whatever port you decide to hail from and head toward whatever horizon you choose, finding all the adventure that you can along the way!

Meanwhile sifting through my imagination; I have to admit I wouldn’t mind being marooned on a remote unknown Island were the only inhabitants are all female, with lots of nature and fruit to eat! Oops there goes that one, the forbidden fruit thing got in my way!

We All Might do Well to Give Pause


I believe sincerely that we are at a precipice as a Nation and in some ways damned if we do and damned if we don’t! But, I intend on doing just as I have been until such time that I can’t anymore!

Take into account these words of wisdom by Edmund Burke. “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”     “Yes, there is a time when good men and women must stand up for what’s right, even when it involves risk, but that moment comes only after evil has already been well established and is powerfully on the move.” Evil is inherently weak. The truth is that evil survives by tricking the good into doing its will. “Without thousands of basically decent people confused enough to obey, evil would fail quickly.”

Hannah Arendt summarized evil this way: “The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil. “These people wouldn’t initiate murders by themselves, but in the name of duty, loyalty, unity, and/or the greater good, they cooperate with evil and give it their strength. But each plays a small part—none of them stretches so far that they’d have to contemplate the final effects of their actions.”

In the 20th century, however, the actions of such people led directly to the murders of 260 million people. And they did this precisely by avoiding decisions… by merely obeying.

“People think of murder, lying, and robbery as sins, but none of those has nearly the death toll of obedience.”      

Basically decent men and women obey agents of evil for very mundane reasons. The process often goes like this:

1.           Being confused and intimidated, they look for the center of the pack.

2.           They try not to make waves.

3.           They learn that they can avoid making waves best if they adopt the perspectives of their overlords. So they run the overlords’ slogans through their minds as a default program.

In the end, these people don’t make up their minds. Rather, they take on the minds of their overlords and do their will.

And so, the vast majority of evil done on Earth traces back to minds and wills that have been abandoned to fear and laid on the Altar of Obedience.

The Obama years were chock full of this abandonment and accepting what he said as gospel and we have seen the utter decaying of our Nation because of it!

So those prophetic words by Edmund Burke “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing,” are so true even today and I suspect as long as humans inhabit the earth!

Fellow Americans, if you pray keep doing it, if you don’t, I pray that you start to! The only power that any of us should be obedient to is God the Creator’s! Seek God’s Will through prayer, humility, sacrifice, love of Him and a burning desire to do His Will in all things!

I Just Might be the One to Teach You a Lesson, Punk

What follows is the opening scene in a screen play I’m working.

See my first impression of you was right!  There you go with your head in the toilet and spewing all sorts of foul disgusting dribble!  You think I’m the only lunatic on here?  And what qualifications do you have to gauge who is and isn’t a lunatic?  Moreover you made the statement that I’m a lunatic and you don’t know the first thing about me!  Yet you tell me to dig up proof for you, so you are satisfied that I qualified what I said!  Think you are up a little too high on that horse perhaps fella?  Climb on down and look me in the eye when you talk to me kid!  You come off with this spoiled rotten, brash, think you know it all attitude and what?  I’m supposed to cave in to that and kiss your ring!!!???  You better watch your step out and about with that silly head of yours; it might get knocked clean off!  Now go learn some manners and grow up while you’re at it!

Part of scene Two:

You of all people talking about truth!  You can’t handle the truth, it would eat you alive!  Time to repent, because the inescapable truth is that dark cloud following your every move!   And a megalomaniac was Saddam Hussein who ran Iraq with an iron fist and executed his opposition.  Just remember that you’re lucky you live here in America where you say what you want, maybe you could start showing a little more appreciation and respect for those that died so your sorry ass could do that!  And I’m a man of conscience and there is no way in hell that I could have voted for Hillary with Obama to continue leading from behind with her!  Another term with him or her, the country would be in much worse shape than they already put it into thru the 8 years they had!  A GDP of 1% and running the National Deficit up another $10 Trillion which at that pathetic GDP would never get paid down, we were well on our way to being worse off than some third world countries.  You want that?  If you do then you’re beyond stoned and quite literally insane!  Go watch “Apocalypse Now” to see what Mad begets!

There are plenty of articles that support what I said about the President being a Megalomaniac, a man more unconscious than anything else, but Mueller will fix that!I’m glad I live in a country with a justice system that can correct mistakes!

You can find any article to back up any point of view today with the internet and all of the polarization in this country now!  I wasn’t quoting from a “Few Good Men,” just that the words I used in that sentence fit you to a T!  When I wrote that sentence those words came immediately and I wasn’t thinking about any movie!  With “Apocalypse Now” I did use that film as an illustration along with Saddam Hussein for clarity of my point that we are far removed from having what you chose to depict, a (Megalomaniac) running this Great Nation, in spite of all the corruption throughout the Federal and States Government on both sides of the aisle!  Pay attention to that dark cloud that follows you, it isn’t only going to unleash rain, hail and thunder bolts upon you but the Day of Judgment is close at hand!  Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it in spades!  As far as Mueller and the total fiasco of having a Special Counsel to rip holes into the fabric of our Democracy; which really should have been done with the Obama Administration and Hillary, along with a host of other Democratic characters!  If he doesn’t cause a major Constitutional Crisis with his Deep State agenda, there will be a price to pay for all of this Democratic Party induced attack upon the integrity of our system.  And you like so many millions that voted to get Hillary at the helm with Obama silently leading from behind, failed to recognize that if that had occurred you would have set yourselves up along with the majority of the population like so much fruit ready for the harvest, as they went on with their NEW WORLD ORDER plan, of which you and the majority of the populace are not included in other than as footstools and servant class trash!

A narrative that takes place during the 2ND act during a pod cast

Yes, I believe we’ve been hood winked, bamboozled, lied to, discounted, marginalized, and outright attacked by these people who are the most nefarious person slime that call themselves American, but are the proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing!!!  There are so many people out there that still don’t get it and when you tell them this they look at you like they have holes in their heads, empty sieves!!! The Parkland School was in their playbook and they can program people now to carry out heinous acts to propagate their plan for the NWO.  I even thought and saw how it did fit the narrative of these NWO manipulators when Adam Lanza attacked Sandy Hook Elementary but first taking out his own mother! With everything that’s going on you would think they see it by now as plain as day, but TMI (too much information) to overload thinking processes and all of the diversionary tactics or programming; even via their own cell phones and Facebook is working superbly to deflect the truth from entering into their heads!  If and when some of these citizens see it, then it will be too late with no escape from the Totalitarian, Big Brother Masters that will own them lock stock and barrel!  On that note they will be the only ones with Guns, and if all the little people get a notion to resist, it will be a blood bath!  You can’t do much with sticks and stones when the power grid will have automatic weapons, tanks, chemical weapons, etc.!   This whole Special Counsel fiasco is the beginning of this take over!  The fools that believe it was necessary for the Democrats to get all hell bent about Trump winning and then selling the idea that he cheated with the Russians is all bull crap!!!  This is just what they planned if Hillary lost the election!  Now they have a good percentage of the populace thinking it’s important and necessary to investigate while guys like Comey and Mueller are traitors to the tenth degree, tearing holes into the fabric of our Constitution and Democracy!  Wake up folks before it’s too late!!!  My fear is that we have passed the point of no return and this is not America as we once knew it and will never be again!

We’ve Become a Land of Shadow Government “Eyes Wide Shut”

I’ve wanted to say so much about how our Nation, “Of the People and by the People and for the People,” is being hijacked by those that are supposed to be serving us! They have “We the People” as their subjects, servants and yes, slaves! There is so much to tell you that I’ve uncovered myself, but, first I’ll let the experts spell it out with what good work they have conducted to help save our Democracy!

What follows is directly quoted from the American Center for Law and Justice:

“It’s an unprecedented bureaucratic coup undermining our security. The Obama Administration took action to empower the entrenched bureaucracy to subvert our national security right before leaving office. It has led to dangerous leaks, criminal violations of the Espionage Act, and the creation of a shadow government to sabotage the new Administration. We discovered that about two weeks before the Obama Administration left office, it rewrote the national security rule-book to share intercepted communications with more unelected bureaucrats. This dramatically endangers our national security and has led to dangerous classified leaks. Even the ACLU called this an “erosion of rules intended to protect the privacy of Americans.”

Our Government Accountability Project is mobilizing to fight back. We’re filing legal demands and lawsuits against the Deep State bureaucracy to: 1) Expose the Obama-era corruption. 2) Stop the soft coup and the rampant leak of classified information. 3) Defeat the Deep State in court.”

I hope this information motivates many of you to think about taking action to resist these nefarious persons throughout our society before its too late.
It’s time to stand up and be counted, and “We the People” can start to hold our elected officials and other bureaucrats accountable!
God Bless America and It’s People

I Should Have Known-False Hope in Another

You speak about a spark of madness as if it were a bit of oxygen to the brain!
Do you know what it’s really like to have to be on a painful mission for many years to serve others and go it completely alone? Another person’s heart should never be taken for granted and especially not be used as a doormat. Perhaps in trying to act so well one cannot know when they are acting or actually living. Do you seek truth and light or smoke and mirrors? Do you seek true inner peace or clutter? There are too many fake and phony players and not enough genuine “Brave Hearts” in the world these days, which is why this media circus is full of narcissism. Thanks for the pretending to care while exploiting something real to use in making something fake, only a feeding! A gorging for one’s own ego, which will never lead to knowing pure humility! But it will lead to an empty heart and lost soul!
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.”

Doing what is right rather than what you want! It might be too painful but it is the only way you will grow. Letting go of self to let God!

Following madness only leads to unbridled self! So true!
Following madness only leads to more madness and eventual destruction!
Adolf Hitler had a spark of madness when he started out, which he was able to fan into a raging hellish inferno!
