National Socialism - the Nazi agenda of US Democrats


Verse of the Week

For You make man like the fish of the sea, like creeping things with no ruler over him.

(Habakkuk 1:14)

Thought for the Week

Many tyrannical regimes (the Catholic Church, the Nazi’s, Soviets, etc) had official policies that enforced their world view on the scientific community. The pressure for scientists to conform and to ignore actual scientific data was high and many elected to serve their political masters. The most recent historical example to fit this leadership paradigm is the Democratic Party of the US.

The Democrats, like those before them, are dedicated to the level of fanaticism. They too believe that their alleged superiority entitles them to use the force of law to make others comply with their view. The degree to which Democrats have twisted science to serve their end goals is more extreme than their predecessors though and examples abound.

They, based on their view of science, have decided they alone determine when a human being is entitled to protection from murder - allowing innocent babies that not only have heart beats and brain waves but their own unique DNA and unique fingerprints, to be murdered in the quest of population control. This while proclaiming the sanctity of life fighting against the death penalty for even the most heinous of criminals.

          Further contradictory views, based on their view of science, are easy to find. They proclaim the Theory of Evolution as fact and refuse to even allow alternate theories to be taught. They proclaim that YHWH does not exist and man is just another animal (See Note). Conversely, they say that man, unlike other animals, is not entitled to fulfill his obvious natural role in Nature - that of the planet’s keystone predator species.

          Just like the Nazi’s and Communists, they fear people that can resist their force and so despise the right to bear arms. They go a step further though using their science. They proclaim gun ownership is mental disease - which must to be eradicated. However, unlike their tyrannical predecessors, they are using their science to proclaim homosexuality is a genetic - which must be accepted. Nay even encouraged because this genetic difference, according to their science, apparently is not a defect or an abnormality, but, rather a, well, they have not explained that. They feel they do not have to; and, they, like most tyrants, resort to the force of law when their fallacies are challenged.

          Each of these examples demonstrates more a desire to control their fellow man rather than a desire to employ scientific data for the benefit of mankind. They want to control who is to be born and who is to be killed. They want to control what you can eat and where you can live. They want to prevent you from defending yourself (or even your views). They are even using their view of science to dominate sexual and social practices (e.g. marriage) - just like the Nazi’s.

          Yet, their most ambitious endeavor regarding the use of scientific data to advance their control is the hysteria of global warming. With this insidious ploy they are attempting to take control over the world’s use of energy - oil, coal, electricity, etc. By controlling the expenditure of energy they will be able to manipulate every aspect of most people’s lives. Manufacturing and the transportation of commodities will be under their control. The ability to obtain food, store it (refrigeration), and even cook it will be regulated. Your ability to travel will be regulated (no gas, no go). Your ability to communicate will be regulated (phone and internet).

          With this Orwellian picture the only thing missing is the thought police. Then again they have not ignored that either. Political correctness is nothing more that the utilization of peer pressure to prohibit the expression of free thinking. When speech, no matter how offensive to some, is prohibited, it endangers not only the expression of thoughts in the present but the ability to pass values on to the next generation. A child raised in such an environment will not miss the freedoms they never knew were possible (read Machiavelli’s The Prince). That is why the democrats despise home schooling - it deprives them of one of their primary brainwashing tools.

          So why harp on all this as a follower of YHWH? - Because these abuses of the knowledge of YHWH’s creation are being used to exclude the Creator. Worse, they are teaching our children that YHWH does not exist and that those who follow YHWH are as dangerous to them as a hidden sandbar to ship. The time is fast approaching when the followers of YHWH will not be allowed to speak out. Folks like me will be hunted as criminals and websites such as this will be a banned - though many modern evangelists will be safe because they do not teach the Gospel of YHWH.

          How will you serve YHWH or spread the His gospel then? How are you doing it now?

Note: Though some of these left wing liberals do apparently believe in Allah - yet another contradiction. COMMENT: What does a liberal democrat do with a homosexual Muslim? Elects him President!

Quote of the Week

Atheism substitutes men for the Supreme Creator, and this leads inevitably to domination and dictatorship. But we believe – and it is because we believe that God intends all men to be free and equal that we demand free government. Our Government is servant, not master; our chosen representatives are our equals, not our czars or commissars. We must jealously guard our foundation in faith. For on it rests the ability of the American individual to live and thrive in this blessed land – and to be able to help other less fortunate people to achieve freedom and individual opportunity. These we take for granted, but to others they are often only a wistful dream. -- President Eisenhower, Oct. 24, 1954

Comment: Such freedoms are fast becoming a wistful dream for Americans as well. Be prepared. Remember what George Washington said: “A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined; but, they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” PS - Some Democrats must have read this - that explains why they are after the ammo too! It will not be a short battle - it will be another bloody civil war.

Did You Know

The last act of Congress ever signed by President Lincoln was one requiring that the motto … ‘In God we trust’ should hereafter be inscribed upon all our national coin.”

Israel has 8019 square miles - New Jersey has 8729. That means Israel is about 1/6 of 1% the size of the Arab countries trying to destroy it.

Population wise just in the Middle East the comparison is @ 5.5 million Israelis to 300 million Arabs. (This does not include Iran - which is Persian not Arabic).

Worldwide population comparison is 14 million Jews to 1.3 billion Muslims.

Number of countries by religious majority:

56 Islamic

49 Roman Catholic

20 Protestant

12 Eastern Orthodox

4 Hindu

1 Jewish

COMMENT: Satan’s work is almost done.

In the year 1140 - A group of Muslims (Damascenes) and Catholics fought together against another group of Muslims (led by the Turk Zengi - He was the first Muslim leader to use the “jihad” against the Crusaders).

In 1144 - Zengi eventually won. He closed all the Catholic churches, but he left all the native Christians in peace.

Saladin (Salah ad-Din) was not an Arab, he was a Sunni Kurd. He overthrew the Shi'ites as well as the Crusaders.

COMMENT: The Muslims have always slaughtered each other. If they ever unite even the Democrats will lose!

Gone Fishin' ?


Verse of the Week

For I do not have delight in the death of him who dies, declares the Lord Jehovah. So turn and live.

(Ezekiel 18:32)

Thought for the Week

          Jesus used the expression “fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19, Mark 1:17). I think too many “preachers” today focus on fishing for men as a sport rather as a serious endeavor to stock the Lord’s pond. They practice a type of catch and release that focuses more on how many they can claim as catches instead of the number of fish that are actually delivered to stock the pond.

 Experienced fishermen know that a previously caught fish can be harder to catch. Fishing is not a sport to the fish; and, being caught may be a painful and frightening experience. The preachers who are using catch and release do more harm than good. The expression once bitten, twice shy applies in life in many ways.

A lot of folks have been caught this way though you would never know it unless you asked them - they do not live the life of one of the Lord’s fish. Other folks have been caught and think they are safely in the Lord’s pond, when in fact they are just hanging out on a stringer in whatever water they were in before. They may or may not live their lives as if they have been caught; but, they do not live the life of one of the Lord’s fish. Finally, and sadly, there are those whose lives may reflect living the life of one of the Lord’s fish but that is all it is - a reflection. They are sincere but are with a different fisherman - most likely one called Paul. Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery, but it is still imitation and not the real thing.

We are told several times, by Jesus, to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees (SEE NOTE). Paul was not one of the Twelve Apostles but he was a Pharisee. People who follow Paul think the leaven of the Pharisees was rigid adherence to the law - it was not. Jesus told us the leaven of the Pharisees was hypocrisy - acting the part, not real (Luke 12:1). We are also told, by Jesus, to beware of false prophets (Matthew 7:15). Evil is most deceptive and dangerous when cloaked in good. Paul is as dangerous to the soul and the children of YHWH as Mohammed.

If you are reading this, but still swimming in Paul’s pond, the Lord is throwing you a lifeline - please grab it while there is still time. Read Jesus’ warning in Matthew 7:21/22!

NOTE: We are also warned against men in general (Matthew 10:17), covetousness (Luke 12:15), and of the leaven of the Sadducees (Matthew 16:6, Mark 8:15) - also called the leaven of Herod.

Quote of the Week

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. -- Abraham Lincoln

Comment: There is a reason Jesus said many are called but few chosen: Lincoln left out Satan’s option - fooling most of the people most of the time.

Did You Know

The third section of the 24 books of the Hebrew Bible (also called the Tanakh) is known as the Writings, also called the Ketuvim or the Hagiographa.

The Book of Esther is the only book in the Tanakh that does not contain the name of God (YHWH). COMMENT: The traditional explanation relates to the concept of “the hidden face of God” (hester panim) because YHWH plays a crucial role in the Purim story, but it is behind the scene.

The writings of Saul of Tarsus (AKA Paul) and Mohammed both mention Jesus. Paul does so over 200 times but never quotes Jesus once! COMMENT: Most modern “Christians” follow Paul’s example and do not listen to what Jesus said! They follow Paul’s false gospel not the Gospel Jesus taught.

Hundreds of records for the lowest temperate are being broken! COMMENT: So much for “Global warming”. Looks like the scientists of the 60’s and 70’s may have been right with their prediction of “Global Cooling”!

          The fallacy of the Theory of Evolution has had a hard time dealing with the Theory of Intelligent Design. It has an equally hard time with concepts such as irreducible complexity. But on a much simpler level here are some puzzling facts to consider:

- There is only one mammal that flies - the bat.

- There is only one mammal known to be poisonous - the Cuban solenodon (a type of shrew that

was supposedly extinct).

- Only one mammal is born with horns - the giraffe.

- Giraffes have seven vertebrae in their necks - the same as humans.

- If an octopus loses one of its arms it grows a new one.

- There are over 50 oceanic species in the Amazon.

- The tiger has striped skin beneath its striped fur.

- Both the polar bear and the zebra have black skin beneath their fur/hair.

- Most snakes lay eggs; but, some snakes give live birth (i.e. the rattlesnake).

- The cockroach has two brains - one in the head and one in its tail.

There are so many animals that scientists falsely claimed were extinct for millions of years, but are not, that there are a whole mess of ways to refer to or classifying them - Lazarus taxa, Elvis taxa, zombie taxa, pseudo-extinct, living fossil, etc. COMMENT: It seems many of the scientific communities’ proponents of the Theory of Evolution have a lot in common with the proponents of global warming - they lose their grants if they do not tote the line - sycophants or scientists? Nowadays a degree in science really is a BS degree!

A pagan temple in Cambodia, called Angor Wat, has ancient carvings of live dinosaurs (more specifically the stegosaurus). COMMENT: There is actually quite a bit of evidence that man and dinosaurs did live at the same time (i.e. fossilized footprints) - though much of it is disputed. I have yet to hear of an archeological explanation for the evidence at Angor Wat. Like most such examples if an item does not fit an evolutionary paradigm it is ignored (i.e. over 45,000 ancient stone carvings/engravings in Ica, Peru showing men with dinosaurs - fighting, riding, etc).

PS - The Bible is not the only ancient text that may mention man interacting with dinosaurs (e.g. livyâthân - Isaiah 27:1, Job 3:8, 42:1, & Psalms 74:14, 104:26) - even ancient Hindu texts do so regarding gigantic “lizards”.

PSS - Perhaps there is a reason every ancient culture on Earth has legends concerning man interacting with dragons.

YHWH and Freedom


Verse of the Week

And it shall be, if you shall forget YHWH your God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you today that you shall utterly perish; as the nations that YHWH makes to perish before you, so you shall perish; because you did not listen to the voice of YHWH your God.

(Deuteronomy 8:19-20)

Thought for the Week

          I think few today ever ponder why freedom is such an important issue for the followers of YHWH. No matter what government you live under one thing is sure - it is each of us alone who will stand before our Creator to answer for ourselves on Judgment Day. Kings may have been replaced, in the US, by presidents; but, we know that YHWH, by the history of his chosen people, prefers that we follow Him and no other man or group of men. Manmade laws are no substitute for individual responsibility before our Creator so for those that truly follow YHWH manmade law is relevant only when compatible with YHWH’s law. Scholars tell us that manmade laws are part of the social contract we share with each other; but, since we cannot choose where or into what era we are born it is a contract made under duress and therefore, by the laws of man, an invalid contract. Only among a people free to choose can any such social contact hope to have validity.

          Man, as a social creature, learned long ago that morality cannot be enforced by law. In this era of decadence Man will learn that tolerance for immorality cannot be legislated either. YHWH created us with freewill. He knows that we will either choose the path of righteousness out of love for Him or we will reject Him. It is a matter of internalization - not the fear of external force. His laws do not make one righteous - they only indicate to us the difference in the hearts of those who commit righteous and unrighteous actions. Unlike mortal judges He alone can see into our hearts and tell what truly motivates us.

          Jesus made it quite clear that ritual compliance for fear of punishment was not good enough. He also said he came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it. We know by his example that it is obedience to YHWH’s law from love, and not fear of punishment, that YHWH finds acceptable. On the other hand, manmade law, whether from a king, a president, or tyrant, depends on fear of punishment. But no matter the punishment no true follower of YHWH would ever surrender control of his behavior over to another man because they know it is as individuals that they will be held accountable by YHWH.

No manmade law, even when backed by the use of force, can make accepting, encouraging, or assisting in the practice of the abominations of homosexuality or abortion a righteous action before YHWH. YHWH, not man, grants us each the individual right to practice sin or righteousness. If one chooses to sin they have the right/freedom to do so; and, if one chooses to be righteous they have also the right/freedom to do so! Man has no right to take away the freedoms YHWH has granted! The “Founding Fathers” held that truth to be self-evident! I have no right to force you to act morally AND you have no right to force me to act immorally.

          History has shown that only a free and moral people could ever live peacefully together in a society which focuses its laws not on the behavior of the people but on the government instead. Such was the intention of the “Great Experiment” by the “Founding Fathers” when they restricted the US Government by penning the Constitution of the United States. The government has no right to force you to participate in a Christian activity of any kind (i.e. wedding) AND the government has no right to force me to participate in a homosexual activity of any kind (i.e. civil union/wedding). Sadly the Constitution is now largely ignored, having been replaced by a “rule of law” based upon the precedents and opinions of unelected officials. As a result, as a people, the citizens of the US are no longer free enough or moral enough to continue the experiment. It is failing.

          Domestic issues are too numerous to list here but examples even abound in the foreign policy of the US. Where once the US claimed to champion freedom from oppression (think fascism, communism) it now champions murderers (think PLO, Hezbollah, etc) as long as the murdered are Jews or Christians; but, it steps in when the murdered are Muslims (think Kuwait). When the murdered are a mix of the followers of YHWH and Muslims (think ISIS, etc) the US policy is as flaccid as the current leadership - Obama must be having trouble figuring out how to save the Muslims without helping anyone else. Just as bad is the hypocritical practice of chastising China for its population control measures while enriching the Chinese government and allowing millions of its own US citizens to be murdered by similar population control methods (think abortion).

          Between the traitors and the cowards in all three branches of the US Government one can safely say the “Great Experiment” is failing. The eagle has not landed but we are not free to remove our seatbelts or move about the cabin because the eagle is about to crash and burn. Most Americans will blindly follow orders and die in the safe position - with their heads down and tucked between their legs. Me, I am a former paratrooper and a follower of YHWH - I will keep my eyes on the horizon and die on my feet. What say you?

Quote of the Week

If we mean to have those appointed to public offices who are sincere friends to religion, we, the people who appoint them, must take care to choose such characters . . . -- Oliver Ellsworth, member of the Continental Congress and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (1796-1800)

Comment: This obviously has not been done for far too long. Tumors of evil have infected the body of the US. They are malignant. If not radically removed, and soon, the case will be terminal.

 

Did You Know

The United States got impeachment of leaders from the Iroquois Nation.

Comment: It is a practice that is long overdue in being exercised!

The first book printed in what would become the USA, while it was still made up of colonies, was “The Whole Booke of Psalms Faithfully Translated Into English Metre”.

          Obama, in Oregon in 2008, said, “I have now been in 57 states – one left to go”?

Comment: Does Kenya have 58 states? Then again he also said, “There is no POTUS

without TOTUS” (a teleprompter).

“SOS” has been translated as “Save Our Souls” or “Save Our Ship”. Another traditional distress call for help is “CQD” which is translated as “Come Quickly, Distress”.

 “In God We Trust” was first minted on a coin in 1864 - a two-cent piece.

Fingerprints, like DNA, are believed to be specific to the individual person. An average three month-old fetus already has distinct DNA and a distinctive set of prints.

Comment: Abortion is the only form of murder that routinely has two murderers - the mother and the medical malpracticianer. (Do not doctors take an oath to “first do no harm”?)

End Times - What's Missing?


Verse of the Week

But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and governors because of my name.

(Luke 21:12)

Thought for the Week

          I do not usually delve much into prophetic interpretations but since it has become so popular of late I have written a little on the subject. The article In the Spotlight this week is the most recent example and deals with an aspect of the end times I feel is still being overlooked by most of the mainstream “Christian” media - perhaps because it is not a very politically correct aspect to deal with.

I try not to let my being a US American or politics in general influence the articles written for “In the Spotlight”; but, I make no such effort on this “front page” and offer no apologies for that.

          There is another aspect of the end times that is missing from most of the mainstream “Christian” media. It is missing because it is information given to us by Jesus himself that runs counter to all the “tithe to us and get rich” schemes that fill most current mainstream “Christian” media. Reread the “Verse of the Week” above if you still do not understand. Jesus told us several times we would be persecuted if we followed him; but, as indicated in the verse above he specifically singled out this persecution as a precursor to the other “popular” events as signs of the end times.

          It seems it is more profitable to sell books about Blood Moons than it is to tell Jesus’ followers to get ready to be hunted down as criminals. Watch all the programs you want and read all the books you like - just remember nothing replaces the guidance of YHWH’s Holy Spirit. Folks, even those who do not worship YHWH, seem fascinated by comparing the current increase in earthquakes, famines, plagues, and wars with prophecy - Biblical or otherwise. It seems many were actually disappointed to learn the Mayans missed the mark with 2012 - evens alleged “Christians” who should know better (Jesus was quite clear that only YHWH knows the time). Even Satan and his minions do not know when YHWH will send His son to return; but, that does not slow down their efforts to win.

The current rise in Islamic violence is for a reason. Mainstream “Christian” leaders are not the only ones cashing in on end times fever. Many Muslims believe the Mahdi is already on Earth and is waiting to appear. For them the end times have begun. There is a reason that the left wing liberal democrats cannot understand this threat from Islam. They do not understand faith in any god. They do not understand that the root cause is not economics - it is religious belief.

If you are a worshipper of YHWH then get ready to be considered a criminal AND to be treated as such. Also remember (or for some learn) what the true worshippers of YHWH are especially called to do in the end times: witness (Luke 21:13) - that means spread the Gospel of YHWH and Jesus the Christ (not the false apostle Paul)!

          Governments will not protect you. In fact, as in the case of the US, they will continue to enslave you. Muslims are allowed, even encouraged, to lie to non-Muslims in the furtherance of Islam - just look at Obama. It is not ignorance - it is intention. The people of the US have become apathetic and complacent. Even if the end times are not near biblically speaking they are well under way for the people of the US and any other formerly free people. Voting has not worked; the tyrants continue to ignore the will of the people. There are only two options left: surrender or stand up for the right to worship YHWH our Creator!

Quote of the Week

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. -- Thomas Jefferson

          Comment: The US government is making it a crime to live as a true follower of YHWH. Jesus became a felon when he stood for YHWH against Satan’s tyrants of Rome. Will you be a willing slave to a government run by Satan or a felon for worshipping YHWH?

 

Did You Know

          1 out of every 107 Americans is incarcerated

The US has about 5% of the world’s population but has 25% of the prison population.

About one US citizen a day is illegally incarcerated in ICE detention facilities - this while Obama lets known criminal illegal immigrants wander about freely awaiting a hearing 5 years down the road.

          FEMA camps set up after Katrina and Sandy were surrounded with fences topped by barbed wire facing IN!

India is the only non-Muslim/Christian majority country in the world where Muslims and Christians have separate laws. (The US is getting there though.)

Icelanders are building a pagan temple - the first in over 1000 years. - A sign of the times?

Here is a list of some of the things most Muslims believe will be signs of the end times:

There will be a great conflict in the land of Syria until it is destroyed. (ISIS)

There will be a loss of honesty; and, authority is given to those who do not deserve it. (Obama)

Jews will be fighting Muslims. (Israel did not exist when this prophecy was written)

People will compete in the construction of very tall buildings.

Women will be appearing naked despite their being dressed.

People will be seeking knowledge from misguided and astray scholars. (Global warming, followers of Paul)

The Euphrates will uncover a mountain of gold. (Oil)

Satan's Minions? - Catholics & Muslims


Verse of the Week

Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of the destruction of the wicked when it comes.

(Proverbs 3:25)

Thought For the Week

          The evil machinations of the adherents of Islam (e.g. terrorism) pose an obvious mortal threat (See Note1). In fact comments are being made to the effect that the Islamists are operating as if it is still the Dark Ages. In many ways this appears to be true; yet evil, and the danger it poses, exists in many forms. Some are more obvious than others. Often, more dangerous, are the less obvious forces of evil.

The modern sins by violence of the Islamists are comparable to the same past sins of the Catholic Church - which are too numerous to list and too pronounced to be denied. Even recent popes have offered official apologies for some past actions. The sad truth is that the Catholic Church is more evil today; but, it wields its power via financial and political force rather than force by violence. It also has a PR department that is second to none.

I suppose I should explain my statements - by dangerous I refer to the soul. The sword of Islam is no more dangerous to a person’s soul than was the sword of Rome. Perhaps the Catholic Church has admitted past mistakes because they were indeed mistakes. They slaughtered a lot of innocent people but it is doubtful they got many true converts. The Catholic Church has learned what the ignorant Islamists have not - “you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar”. The Islamists are still so ignorant they count on a fly swatter!

          The Catholic Church has acted as a force against the followers of YHWH since its very inception. It spent over a millennia trying to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing; and, it then spent centuries just being a wolf. For the last few centuries it has turned to the more subtle nature of the serpent; and, in this more modern era the snake is slowly shedding its skin.

          Modern popes have kissed the Koran and the behinds of the Islamists. The latest pope is kissing the behinds of homosexuals. I would add pedophiles but who knows how long that perversion has been condoned by the papacy. Just as insidious is that the papacy has found a new cheering section amongst many so called evangelicals. All of this is claimed to be done in the name of “tolerance” (especially by the duped evangelicals).

          Have you ever seen the word tolerance in the Bible? It seems these folks, if they believe in sin, equate tolerance with the adage “hate the sin but love the sinner”. Did Jesus do that? Only if the sinner quit sinning! He told them to “go and sin no more” (e.g. John 5:14 & 8:11). But what if the sinner does not stop sinning? Jesus said “sin no more, that something worse may not happen to you”? He said this to a man that had already been crippled for 38 years and was not accused of committing any sin!

          Satan loves tolerance - he will accept any coward no matter how depraved. Tolerance gives him and his free reign to corrupt the next generation even worse!

Note1: Some would counter that by saying, “unless you are a democrat”. To which I reply the issue is not one of blindness but purpose. Obama and his adherents see these machinations not as evil but as a means to an end. Consider his own words: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." - US President Barack Obama at the UN General Assembly on 9/25/12 (related Source). Or just ask Howard Dean. These folks are not anti-American - they are anti-christian America. Their wet dream is a US President Ayatollah Khomeini.

 

QUOTE

They have the Gospel according to Matthew in its entirety in Hebrew. For it is clear that they still preserve this, in the Hebrew alphabet, as it was originally written.

-- Epiphanius of Salamis, Panarion 29.9.4

Comment: A simple citation from history (Epiphanius died in 402 A.D.) for those folks who still follow the Catholic inspired “Greek only” tradition as the language of the originals concerning New Testament writings. If you believe the original writings of the Bible were inspired by YHWH then you might want to learn what was written before Satan got a hold of the writings. PS - Epiphanius also tells us, in Panarion 29, the Nazarenes rejected the writings of Paul.

 

Did You Know

The Catholic Church in the US has 171 billion in assets (Chicago diocese alone has over 3 billion in assets). The Catholic Church, if it were treated as a corporation, would rank in the top 20 of US corporations. It operates as a tax free charitable entity yet only about 2% goes to charity.

The Vatican is the smallest country in the world - yet owns and controls more land than the USA.

Regarding past sins of the Catholic Church (that make ISIS/ISIL look like Obama’s JV team) research Charlemagne and the Bloody Verdict of Verdun (about 4,500 decapitated in one day)!

George Bernard Shaw had a character say this in his 1908 play, Getting Married: "I believe the whole British Empire will adopt a reformed Mohammedanism before the end of the century."

Muslims preserve the tradition that Matthew went to Ethiopia to preach the message of God.

America - Obama's Police State - Killers on the Loose


Verse of the Week

Woe, sinful nation, a people heavy with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, sons who corrupt! They have forsaken YAHWEH; they have scorned the Holy One of Israel. They have gone away backward.

(Isaiah 1:4)

Thought For the Week

The term “American Exceptionalism” has been tossed about quite a bit lately so I thought I would share some thoughts on the subject. Since it would be unfair to go back much further than a few centuries we will look at history since the USA began.

If you enjoy your health then you should thank the English Jenner, the French Curie and Pasteur, the German Rontgen (think x-rays) or even the Polish/Russian Sabin (think polio if you are old enough to remember that plague - and I hate shots!). Even dreaded diseases like malaria were beaten back without America and DDT - think Ross (Indian/British) and Spruce (British). Ironically, few Americans know of the American they owe the most to when it comes to vaccines - Maurice Hilleman.

If you like electricity then you should thank the Serbian Tesla whose AC systems beat the American Edison’s DC systems hands down - beyond that you can thank the German/British Siemens, the Italian Volta, the French Ampere, the German Ohm, and the Scottish Watt. Alexander Graham Bell was also Scottish as was Fleming - who gave us time GMT and time zones.

If you like nuclear energy (or nuclear medicine, etc.) consider that Teller was Hungarian, Einstein and Planck were German, Dirac was English, Bohr was Danish, and Van de Meer was Dutch. Regarding the latest challenges in physics, e.g. the Higgs Boson Particle, well Higgs is British and Bose is Indian.

When it comes to science and math just remember the name of the law or principle and that is usually a good indicator of where it came from - though some can be deceiving - e.g. Bernoulli’s principle (He was Swiss).

And then there are the little things in life that came from all over - e.g. from the French Braille, Cousteau, Peltier, etc. If you like your radio, then thank the Italian Marconi. And, for instrumental music thank the Germans Bach, Brahms, Beethoven, Wagner, etc.

But of course Americans have to stand out and do not like things like the metric system - we even prefer the German Fahrenheit to the Swedish Celsius. And for prizes that Americans like to claim to prove their worth - Nobel was Swedish and Pulitzer was Hungarian.

          If the USA was once exceptional it was because she was blessed by YHWH with the immigration of some of the finest minds the world produced. These were immigrants begging to become Americans. Those days appear to be long gone. Immigrants once came to make America their new home; but, now most come only to remake their old home in America. Now the US Government prefers a different kind of immigrant - HIV+ and Ebola+ patients from Africa, uneducated and unemployed Hispanics from south of the border, and Islamist adherents from anywhere they can get them - most of them despising what America stands (stood) for. But why should they not come - the US Government offers them benefits often better than it does America’s own military veterans.

          Protecting one’s self from harm is not evil; it is prudent (think learning how to duck a punch). A doctor who spreads the disease he is trying to cure is defeating his own purpose. One can treat a disease without becoming a casualty of the disease. The USA need not withdraw from helping the poor and downtrodden of this world; but, it must maintain a heathy body to support that helping hand. Does the saying, “Physician, heal yourself” sound familiar (Luke 4:23)?

Did You Know

Controversy and “Christian” holy days are not a new phenomenon - research quartodecimanism.

Melito of Sardis is said to have coined the term “Old Testament” as well as compiling the first “Christian” version.

It was not just the earliest Christians in Asia that rejected the false apostle Paul. Tatian, author of the “Diatessaron”, rejected Paul entirely (as did the Ebionites, et al). Marcion, however, made a totally different canon based on Paul’s writings. He held Paul in high regard; but, he also rejected YHWH, the Old Testament, and the 12 true Apostles.

Undocumented workers will soon get lots of documents - Unions are wasting no time in scooping up tyrant Obama’s offerings of reconciliation (dues paying future democrats AKA illegal immigrants). Now they will not have to go home or actually work if they bother getting a job!

No wonder Putin is not worried - the USSR is back (United States of Socialist Repression)! Studies show US police commit more crimes per capita than the general population in a number of categories - murder, rape, domestic and sexual assault, etc. The rate of police officers officially charged with murder is just over 1% higher than the general population murder rate; but, if excessive force complaints involving fatalities were prosecuted as murder the murder rate for law enforcement officers would exceed the general population murder rate by 472%.

Abortion is not the only way to get away with murder in the US - just go to work in law enforcement. US law enforcement officers kill more Americans on a monthly basis than the US military does terrorists! Officers are half as likely to be charged with murder. If they are charged they are half as likely to be indicted. If indicted they are half as likely to be convicted. Without including excessive force fatalities cops have an 87.5% or better chance of getting away with cold blooded murder. If convicted and incarcerated they will only be sentenced to just over half as much time. A killer cop is more likely to lose their job if anything.

Yet . . . in the US if you lose your driver’s license in one State it is recorded by law for every State to see - to stop you if you apply for a new license elsewhere. But, cops who lose their law enforcement certification (e.g. been fired or resigned) can just try again elsewhere. The so called “National Decertification Index”, which lists officers who’ve lost their certification, is voluntary and only about 2/3’s of the States claim to participate. No wonder the Government wants to steal 2nd Amendment rights - citizens might be able to defend themselves against Government abuses of power!

So much for “American exceptionalism”; but, it is not just the US - check out this from the UK.
