In the beginning God created, Satan did not destroy

I am writing this in answer to Jesse Clark’s comment of October 24, 2010 on my blog article, "Hermenuetics," which was in answer to his first comment to my original article, "It’s a matter of time, Part 1."

First you thank me for what I wrote, then you proceeded to write that I was wrong in what I wrote. Amazing, I will attempt to tell you that you are correct about something before telling you where you are wrong.

You are quite right when you write that there was creation of the angels and also God’s abode before creation in the beginning.

God asked Job, “Where were you when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy.” (Job 37:7) This was at the time of the beginning so they must have been created before the beginning. No mention is made of the creation of where God dwells, heaven, yet the place is mentioned in scripture. So, it had to be created before the beginning.

Scripture says, “God created,” and not, “the devil destroyed.” This creation is referring to the absolute beginning of this temporal and material world and universe (Liberty Annotated Study Bible P. 5).

Heaven is the place in which to put God’s new creation. Earth being formless and void covered with water is the condition of the earth when newly created. Darkness, God did this in the dark for to Him light and darkness are alike in that He can see equally well in ether situation (Ps. 139:12). The Liberty Annotated Study Bible states that the deep is the water covering the earth. I prefer to think that it is the space in which God made to put the stars. This is truly deep; much deeper than the water covering the earth. I think the Study Bible is incorrect at this point, but will acknowledge that they could be correct.

Further, the Liberty Annotated Study Bible states on page 5, “God created the original heaven and earth from nothing (Lat. ex nihilo) and that verse 2 clarifies that when it came from the Creator’s hand, the mass was “without form” and “void,” unformed and without any life. The rest of the chapter then explains the process of creation in detail. There is no evidence in the Hebrew text for long ages of evolutionary development or of a gap of time between verse 1 and 2.”

In ninth grade science class my teacher asked, “Where did all this come from?” I was the only one to raise my hand and when the teacher pointed on me to give the answer I said, “Nothing”. Immediately, the teacher and the whole class burst out laughing. However, I was correct.

There is evidence that each day was 24 hours in length and that there was six of those days in which the Creator worked. In the text it says evening and morning the first day. We have 24 hour days today with seven days in a week. God says He worked six days and rested the seventh. Therefore the children of Israel were to work six says and rest the seventh. We have God’s word on it.

I will give you this admonition:

II Timothy 2:15:

Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Jesse, you appear to not be willing to take the Holy Bible for what it says. God says He is creating and you say the devil is destroying. Both positions cannot be correct. You write that God divides. Again God says He is creating. You seem to have a destructive and an imprecise bias.

Jesse, you write, “What follows? God “divides” day from night, firmament from water, water from land, kind from kind, man from women, etc…” None of this is true. You are not being accurate in your observation or in your thinking. You need to be more precise.

God divided the light from the darkness. The light He called day and the darkness He called night. God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters.” He divided the waters from below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. The expanse God calls heaven. God said, “Let the waters under heaven be gathered together into one place and let the dry land appear.” God said, “Let the earth bring forth herbs and fruit trees yielding fruit after its kind.” God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heaven to divide the day from the night.” God put the man into a deep sleep and took the rib out of Adam and closed up the flesh of Adam and fashioned a women. This is all a part of creation by God.

We read of the demise of Satan in Isaiah 14:12-21 and also in Ezekiel 28:2-19. The angels fell by the fail of Satan which we read in Revelation 12:3,4. War will take place in heaven during the Great Tribulation and Satan and his angels will be cast out of heaven to earth Revelation 12:7-9. Satan will no longer have access to the throne of God to accuse the people of God before God any more.

Jesse, may God grant you understanding of His word.

OHIO: Pink Slips for Five Incumbent US House Reps

The expected fall House cleaning on Tuesday, November 2, 2010 must include the defeat of five incumbent Democrats. The five that need to be sent packing are:

· OH-01: Fire Steve Driehaus (D) Hire Steve Chabot (R)

· OH-13: Unseat Betty Sutton (D) Welcome Tom Ganley (R)

· OH-15: Let Go Mary Jo Kilroy (D) Bring Back Steve Stivers (R)

· OH-16: Bye Bye John Boccieri (D) Say Hi to Jim Renacci (R)

· OH-18: Send Off Zack Space (D) Elect Bob Gibbs (R)


Here is why Ohio voters in the above named districts must remove the Democratic incumbents. All five of these Democrats vote YES for the failed Stimulus Bill, for economy-killing Cap and Trade, for repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and in favor of the DISCLOSE Act.

In fact, on all of the 8 important issues listed below Representatives Driehaus, Sutton and Kilroy voted YES on all 8 matters. Congressman Boccieri voted NO on only one of the eight matters, while Congressman Space voted NO a whopping twice. Here are the issues.

2009-10 Congressional Scorecard for these Issues:

1. “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009” (Stimulus bill) February 13, 2009

2. “Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act” April 29, 2009

3. “American Clean Energy and Security Act” (Cap-and-Trade Emissions Limits) June 26, 2009

4. “Financial Industry Regulation” (financialreform,’ creates new government agency, large expansion of regulation) Dec.

5. “Affordable Health Care for America Act” (House version of ObamaCare) Nov. 7. 2009

6. “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (Senate version of ObamaCare) March 21,

7. Murphy Amendment to the Defense Authorizations Act (Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Policy)

8. DISCLOSE Act (would place restrictions on organizational election activity) June 24, 2010

Hat tip goes to for compiling the votes on the issues for the incumbents discussed above.

Interestingly, two of the 5 candidates, Driehaus and Sutton are mentioned tonight in a article, "House: The Daily 10." Ohio is being watched nationally. It is a key state in this election as it has been in other recent elections.

The Ohio Secretary of State Race of 2010

Update 10/29/10:

I now endorse Charlie Earl for Ohio Secretary of State based on in the information I received from Principled Policy Yahoo! Group concerning Mr. Earl's support of an Ohio Personhood Amendment. 
Maryellen O'Shaughnessy (Democrat)

This woman is endorsed by a bunch of anti-Christian death-loving perverts, including the pro-abortion group EMILY's List, and several sodomite groups, including Dayton Area Stonewall Democrats, Equality Ohio, Stonewall Democrats of Central Ohio, and Stonewall Democrats of Summit County. The Buckeye Firearms Association gives her an F.

Jon Husted (Republican)

According to Husted's website, "As Speaker of the House, Jon Husted fought to preserve opening prayer before House session. Husted protected guest pastor prayer, and in a memo to the House Clerk stated that as “the leader of this esteemed chamber, I will not allow our prayers to be censored.” After questions about the policy arose, Husted stood strong on the principles of free speech and religious tolerance by protecting the important tradition of reflection and guidance through prayer."

His website also says he opposes using tax dollars to fund or promote abortion.

However, Mr. Husted was the state campaign manager for pro-abortion Jennette Bradley's campaign. When a bill was introduced in the Ohio legislature to ban all abortions, Mr. Husted, who was then the Speaker of the House, did not support the bill and said he would not schedule a hearing for it. Only after the bill's sponsor, Tom Brinkman, made a deal with Mr. Husted did Mr. Husted schedule one hearing. Mr. Husted promised Mr. Brinkman that he would schedule another hearing, but he never did. (I know this because Mr. Brinkman told me.)

According to Chris Littleton, President of the Ohio Liberty Council, Husted’s other fiscally irresponsible and market-inhibiting votes include increased regulation in the mortgage lending bill, short term loans, a vote for the Commercial Activity Tax, and irresponsible budgets. According to the Buckeye Institute, during Husted's time as Speaker of the House, 2005 to 2009, spending increased an average of $3 billion per year. In 2010, Husted voted yes for the corporate welfare program called Third Frontier.

Charlie Earl (Libertarian)

Mr. Earl is a former State Representative. He professes to be a God-fearing Christian.

His website says "Charlie Earl is dedicated to the principle that the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Ohio provide the fundamental basis for self governance in our state and in our nation. He believes, further, that any law, action, rule or regulation that violates either Constitution should not be implemented or enforced. In addition, Charlie pledges that he will not willingly engage in any activity as Secretary of State for Ohio that does not conform with both Constitutions."

Mr. Earl supports an Ohio Personhood Amendment to guarantee legal protection to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being. When I asked him if he would issue a business "license" to an abortion facility, he says "I will NOT do anything as Ohio SoS that violates either
Constitution, and that includes the issuing of permits or licenses for any entity that takes life."

Mr. Earl's website says "Dedicated to enforcing free, fair and efficient elections, Charlie will strive to insure that every legal state citizen who is registered to vote can rest assured that her/his vote will be counted fairly and efficiently... and once for each election."

And "as Secretary of State, Charlie will address efforts to attain ballot status in a pro-active manner. In other words, the "benefit of the doubt" will always be in favor of the petitioner rather than a stance that assumes all petitions are corrupt, inadequate or incomplete."

Also, "As Secretary of State, Charlie Earl will have a seat on the Apportionment Board I the body responsible for redrawing legislative districts.... As a member of a third party, the Libertarian Party, Charlie can play a pivotal role in the redistricting process. He will, in effect, be the swing vote that assures that NO backroom deals or incumbent-protection districts prevail."

I ENDORSE CHARLIE EARL for Ohio Secretary of State!
Original Post:

I don’t know yet who I am going to vote for in this race.

I don’t know much about O’Shaughnessy.  Husted supporters say that she would be just like Jennifer Brunner.  But I need to see concrete evidence of this, not just rhetoric.  O’Shaughnessy expresses concerns about how the transparency of elections is in jeopardy due to electronic voting machines.  (But she unfortunately stops short of calling for hand-counted ballots only.)  However, since O’Shaughnessy has refused to answer all of the candidate surveys, I would assume that she has something hide, and therefore I won’t vote for her.

Jon Husted claims to be pro-life and a fiscal conservative.  But his record on these issues is far from perfect.  He did not support Tom Brinkman’s bill to ban abortion in Ohio.  He supported the amendment to our state’s constitution to use taxpayer’s dollars for the Ohio Third Frontier Project (OTFP).  This belies his claim that he has “Tea Party Values” as he had said in primaries.   OTFP is clearly corporate welfare and essentially the same thing as a bailout.  Millions of dollars which had already been appropriated to OTFP had been used to redesign hospital gowns.  We need to send Husted (and 87% of the other lawmakers in our state) that we have real Tea Party value and we are paying attention to what you are doing.  Our state constitution is supposed by for the purpose of protecting our rights, not some economic scheming to try to create jobs by shifting money from one person to another.  Husted does not even mention transparency in election procedures.   If I vote for Husted, I will literally be holding my nose while I do it.

I met Charles Earl once in person.  He is a nice man.  He answered the Abigail Adams survey the way you expect a Republican to answer it.  He indicated that he was pro-life, fiscally conservative, pro-marriage, pro-school choice, and against teaching sex education in grades K-6.  (I don’t agree with some of his answers on other issues, but they are acceptable.) But he did not answer the Project Vote Smart and Cincinnati Right to Life surveys.  And whether a candidate is really 100% pro-life cannot be determined from the Abigail Adams survey unless the candidate provides additional comments to that effect (which he did not, and the same thing would be true of the CRLT survey).  Husted and O’Shaughnessy refused to answer this questionnaire.  I am still waiting for Citizens for Community Values to publish the results of their survey.  Right now they only have their endorsements.  The candidate’s answers (not any endorsement) will likely be determining factor of who I vote for.  (They usually wait until just before the election before they publish the answers.  If they don’t publish the results, I’m going to write an angry letter to them.)  Charles Earl received the endorsement of COAST (Citizens Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes).

Pray for Haiti

October 22, 2010

Dear Friends,

Today here in Haiti we learned of an outbreak of cholera north of Port au Prince extending up to the Saint Marc area. Apparently several hundred have died and thousands are ill. This is a horrible disease that kills very rapidly and it could spread rapidly to other cities/towns if not contained.

Please pray for our Haitian loved ones to be protected and for all those who will be ministering here to help stem this outbreak before it becomes epidemic.

God bless you and we thank you in advance,
Gretchen DeVoe

The Ohio Gubernatorial Race 2010

Every candidate for governor is a man and the running mates are all women, except for the write-in ticket.

Let’s go down the line here.  Start with John Kasich. 

He is totally in bed with Wall Street and its irresponsible lending practices and bailouts.  He voted for DHHS bills providing funding for Planned Parenthood.  He would not repeal gun control laws (The NRA is actually endorsing Strickland.)  There isn’t an issue for which Kasich hasn’t betrayed the Constitution and conservative voters.  Don’t waste your vote on him.  The only possible saving grace is Kasich’s choice of a running mate, Mary Taylor.

Next I’ll take on Strickland.  I really don’t know much about his record, the NRA gives him an A+, but I know that he’s pro-abortion so the discussion stops right there.

Ken Matesz is a designer and builder of masonry heaters. (OK, that’s not relevant, but I thought I’d just throw that in.)  He is a pro-life libertarian.  But I can’t vote him.  OK, its not that he answered “no” to question “Should minors who send sexually-explicit or nude photos by cell phone face criminal charges?”  Since it is not even crime for them to have all out sex intercourse, then what’s the point in having a law against this?  (I am assuming that Mr. Matesz is interpreting this question the same as I am - that the subject of the photos consented to being photographed nude.)  And I ordinarily would never vote for anyone who says that they are for allowing civil unions for same-sex couples, but Matesz qualifies his answer by saying, “I support getting government out of everyone's private lives. It is not up to the state to decide who can form a "union" or who can get married. That is up to the people, parents, clergy, etc.”  Tough to swallow, but maybe I could have made an exception in his case, given that I agree with him on every other issue.  But the nail in the coffin is this:  His running mate is pro-choice (pro-legalization of murder).  But you can’t just vote for one, you have to either vote for the whole ticket or neither of them. 

Dennis Spisak is a typical Green Party environmentalist wacko and typically pro-abortion too.  No need to look further into his record.

Then there’s the David L. Sargent & Andrew C. Pfeifer ticket.  I have no idea what they stand for.  Ordinarily, if I don’t know anything unacceptable about a candidate, then I vote for that candidate.  But I don’t ANYTHING about these guys.  No website, no questionnaire answers, no voting record, and no public statements that I could find.  I just can’t vote for someone not knowing if they are Communists, Fascists, Anarchists, or some other crazy ideologues.   If I could find out even one good thing about them I might vote for them.  Just say that you won’t support putting Jews in concentration camps, confiscating all privately owned property, or enforce Obama’s healthcare plan, and I’ll vote for you guys just to reduce the percentages of the other candidates! 

If I could I would vote for Matesz and Taylor.  This is why we need to get the law changed so that the more discerning, discriminating, principled and well informed voters can have more of an impact on the election.  The election for governor and lieutenant governor should be separate!  (Or, all the candidates could put into one pool and allow the voters to select up to two with the second place candidate getting the lt. gov. nod.)  But as it stands right now, I am going to leave all the boxes under governor unfilled on my ballot.

Ohio and the 2010 Election

Real Clear

House of

Democrats 178

Toss Ups


The past two days I attended a healthcare conference in Columbus, Ohio. There were approximately 200 persons in attendance. Yesterday 2 lobbyists, one Democrat and one Republican, and the Ohio association executive director and a national association policy director spoke about the upcoming general election.

I was very interested in what they had to say. The comments were geared mostly on Ohio.


Two of the speakers quoted the Generic Ballot, which is a composite of several different national polls. As of 10/27/2010 the GOP is projected to pick up 8 seats, leaving the Democrats still in the majority. Senate races in WV, NV, IL and CO were very close or tied.

In the House the Republicans are projected to gain the majority taking anywhere between 39 – 77 seats. Out of the 435 House seats up for grabs, only about 100 are competitive. A number of Democrats are retiring to spend time with families, which is code for ‘I’m quitting before my constituents’ fire me.’ Several in Congress are feeling the heat (of the boiling hot TEA maybe?)

In addition the Republicans are expected to pick up 7 governorships.


None of the 4 experts thought that Health Care “Reform” would be repealed outright. Any attempt to repeal would be vetoed by the President. Deadlock and incremental changes to the bill were the expected outcome in the post election battles over the new health care ‘reform’ law.


One thing that really struck me regarding Ohio was the comment made by one of the speakers stating that the grand prize for winning the gubernatorial election was the challenge to deal with the gruesome budget deficit of $8 billion. The current governor, Ted Strickland, is closing the gap and the race is tight. It could go either way. At the present time John Kasich, the GOP candidate is slightly ahead.

Rob Portman (R) has a very impressive lead over Lee Fisher (D) in the race for vacillating George Voinovich’s vacated seat. Portman leads by some 18 percentage points.

One U.S. House of Representatives race that is very close is the Democrat incumbent Zach Space (18th District) versus Republican Bob Gibbs. That race is very close.

Currently the Ohio State House is controlled by the Democrats and the Ohio Senate is controlled by the Republicans. The Democrats are projected to keep control of the House, but by a slimmer margin. The Republicans are expected to keep control of the Senate.


How the various voting districts will be apportioned is another key item to look at in this election. Based on the 2010 census, Ohio is expected to lose one of its seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. How the voting districts are reapportioned could impact elections for the next ten years.

The board consists of one Democratic Representative and one Republican representative. The other three positions include: the Ohio Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Governor. Right now The Republican Jon Husted is ahead of his Democratic opponent, while the Ohio State Auditor race sees Democrat David Pepper winning against the Republican. If that holds true, it will mean that the gubernatorial race will determine which party will be controlling the apportionment process.

Tom Tancredo for Colorado Governor

To say Tom Tancredo has taken a strong position on the problem of the invasion of illegal aliens is an understatement. He was one of the lone voices in either party urging the government to do something about our open, unsecured borders. Tancredo is running for the office of Colorado governor. He is closing the gap against the front runner, a Democrat.

RealClearPolitics linked to a TheDailyBeast article, "Immigration Hawk Could Win" by Bryan Curtis, on their website. The article related how Tancredo irked even his fellow Republicans, "When he suggested that the Bush administration’s border-security policies could allow another terrorist attack, Karl Rove, in Tancredo’s florid telling, called the congressman a “traitor” and told him “never again to darken the doorstep of the White House.”" Now that's my kind of statesmen! He has the courage of his convictions.

Tancredo is a third-party candidate. The Republican candidate has had some major setbacks and is running in the single digit. The Democratic candidate is the mayor of Denver, which is a sanctuary city, which flies in the face of solving the illegal immigration problem. His opponent is a a big-time liberal.

We need to do something about our open borders. Tancredo as governor, like Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona, would be another loud voice crying in the wilderness and drawing attention of an issue both the Democrats and Republicans want to keep under the rug.

Tom Tancredo, who also ran for President, would have made a much better President than the two less than adequate candidates that the major political parties gave us in 2008. At least one of our problems, illegal immigration, might have been dealt with by now. Tancredo is a conservative and his election would be one more step in the right direction for Colorado and for America.

Obama's Name Isn't On The Ballot, But His Agenda Is...

Hat tip goes to TheLookingSpoon which tweeted a link to the poster below. This election will either be a repudiation of the controversial and increasingly unpopular President or it will reaffirm his socialist agenda. I certainly hope that it will be a strong repudiation of the direction that this President and this Congress has taken America these past 20+ months.

Ohio AG: Vote

Check out these radio advertisements for Mr. Robert Owens who is running for the office of Ohio Attorney General. Ohio needs someone not affiliated with either major political party. Owens would be more impartial than any of the the Republican or the Democrat candidate.

A Good Choice ... Robert Owens for Ohio Attorney General

Hat tip goes to Bonnie O. who informed me that Constitution Party candidate for Ohio Attorney General, Robert Owens is appearing on tonights WMFD-TV News (Mansfield, Ohio)in a brief interview. Mr. Owens is a good choice in that he is not affiliated with neither major party and would be less apt to overlook the serious legal issues facing Ohio than either the wishy-washy Republican Mike DeWine or very liberal Democrat Richard Cordray. Cordray is thoroughly Pro-Death while DeWine,vacillates on too many issues and is at best an unreliable 'conservative.'

Hat tip goes to Mark Levin Radio Show (see where I first here the audio of this excellent satire on Senator Boxer's infamous put down of the military official who dared to call her 'ma'am'! This election I am hopeful that the voters of California will reinstate her to civilian life where she could proudly wear the label "former Senator" or "ma'am!"
