Is the Tea Party is 'the most destructive political entity ever seen'

I try to visit and participate in the Politics Forum as often as I can. Today I responded to this post by someone named TheHitman85:

The Tea Party is the most destructive political entity ever seen in this country. The Nullifier Party runs a distant second. Sad really. When will Boehner and the majority of moderate republicans dump these bozo's before a total dismantling of the party.

Here is how I responded:

Sorry, Hit, but the Democrat Party is the most destructive …
The Democrat Party has not passed a budget in nearly 4 years. They run up unsustainable deficits year after year. They demand more ‘revenue’ or taxes; yet refuse to deal with excessive, wasteful government spending.
The ‘destructive’ TEA Party demands that both the ‘moderate’ Republicans and the leftist Democrats balance the government budget.
They want entitlements reformed, including the repeal of an unsustainable new entitlement, ObamaCare. They want the American Health Care System reformed, not transformed into a socialized/state controlled enterprise.
They want their government to do the one duty it is supposed to do – national security – to recognize our enemies (Islam and Islamic Terrorists states and groups) and to treat them as such and not to kowtow and to continually appease them.
They want our porous borders secured. They want the laws of the land enforced.
They demand that the principles of the Declaration of Independence – God given rights of Life, Liberty and Property be preserved and protected.
They want God, the Bible and Judeo-Christian ethics and values restored to the public financed classroom instead of the secular humanistic religion that replaced it and now rules the day…
If this is destructive, call me a destroyer!

Will Boehner Fully Capitulate by 12/31/2012 to Obama?

Unfortunately, Speaker John Boehner is not now a leader of the Conservative Movement, if, in fact, he ever was.
He is a hopeless, hapless RINO. He is a shill for the East Coast country club Republican elites. Time after time, he and the GOP use Conservatives and Tea Party participants at election time to win elections under false premises.
In 2010 they used us to get to the majority in the House.
Once power was secured, Boehner abandoned principle for power and politics. Despite whatever glossy, patriotic, conservative terminology and rhetoric he may misuse in his bombastic speeches before Congress or the Media’s microphones. You can count on Boehner putting Boehner and his party first, America be damned.
Frustratingly, he seemingly acts like a virtual wimp in the presence of the President, yielding like a whipped pup to the President's every demand.
The bottom line is, if Boehner completely caves, as he is expected to do, he must be replaced by a real conservative and leader before it is everlastingly too late. Someone like former Presidential candidate and Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann, who does have a backbone, would nicely and precisely fit the bill.
Or even my current representative in the House, Jim Jordan, who has impeccable Conservative credentials and record, would equally make an outstanding Speaker.
We need someone who will figuratively counteract the Nancy Pelosis, on both side of the aisle in Congress, punch for punch…
Neither of the above mentioned Speaker-replacements would so easily surrender to the ‘transformation-minded’ President and equally treasonous Democrats in Congress. They would deal with the real problem of America, turning off the spending spigot of the current regime in Washington!

‘Fiscal Cliff’ at our Door, Guess Who Gets a Raise from Obama

Forget the Fiscal Cliff it's Fiscal Chaos time in America. And where are her leaders?

Obama, Reid, Boehner, and McConnell just don't get it, do they?

Government is too big and has a severe spending-too-much problem. It doesn’t have a not-enough-taxes problem.

When will these bozos get it? Economic Armageddon is getting closer and closer to 'too late'!

RAD is Bad, part 2

This is series of articles designed to help professing Christians to turn from their wicked ways and get back to following New Testament ethics.  Compromise is increasing in the church.  Popular opinion among churchgoers is often in stark contrast to the very words of Jesus on many issues.  Christians need to know the word of God and get back to using it as a reference book when they are faced with important decisions.

RAD is my acronym for remarriage after divorceLast week I started a sub-series on this topic.  In review I wrote:

1. RAD is sin.  It is the moral equivalent of adultery.
2. There is only one exception given in the Bible.  A divorced man can remarry without sinning only if the reason for the divorce was his wife’s fornication (i.e. it must be a sin of a sexual nature--the NIV incorrectly translates that word as “marital unfaithfulness”). 

These are the scriptures which form the basis for this teaching:

Matthew 5:32, Matthew 19:9, Mark 10:12, Luke 16:18, Romans 7:2-3 and I Corinthians 7:10-11, 39.

Now for some very minor and common sense clarifications:

1. If you were divorced, you can become reunited with your former spouse as long as neither of you married someone else since the divorce occurred (Deuteronomy 24:4).  This does not count as RAD, but it is a reconciliation of an existent marriage commitment.  Some of the passages above make this point very clear (especially I Corinthians 7:11).

2. If someone has already committed the sin of RAD, that marriage is still a real marriage in the eyes of God.  Therefore, such a person should remain in the same marital state that he or she is currently in.  RAD is a sin, but you can’t undo it.  If you go back to the one who you first married (especially if you are a woman) you have only compounded your sin even more (Deuteronomy 24:4).

3.  There are no exceptions for cases where the divorce was caused by physical abuse, alcoholism, or any form of immorality except as mentioned in Matthew 19:9 (KJV).  It doesn't matter whose “fault” the divorce was, who left whom, how much time has passed since the divorce, whether the ex-spouse has married someone else since, whether the divorcee became a Christian before or after the marriage, or whether the divorcee became a Christian before or after the divorce.  None of these things are in the Bible.  Just because there may be justifiable reasons for a divorce, that doesn't mean that a RAD isn't a sin in that case.  Again, Matthew 19:9 has the only exception.

4.  If you reverse the genders in Matthew 19:9, the statement is no longer necessarily true.  It only permits a divorced man to remarry in this special case.  There are no exceptions at all for divorced women. 

5.  Deuteronomy 24:2 says, “And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.”  But this does not mean that RAD is not a sin.  Jesus explains why the Law of Moses was permissive of something that God hates (Matthew 19:4-9).  

6.  The Greek word used in Matthew 19:9 to describe the exceptional case is pornea which means fornication.  Translations which use the word “immorality” or “marital unfaithfulness” should not be taken as license to RAD in cases where the wife has committed some sin other than a sexual sin.  The Greek word is slightly broader than the word for adultery, so it might include things like flirting, pornography, and other sinful, sexual behaviors that fall short of full blown adultery.  But I do not include sexual deprivation in the definition of fornication.

7. Some people believe that the exception mentioned in Matthew 19:9 is talking about when a woman claims to be a virgin, but upon marrying the woman, the husband finds that this is not true and divorces her as a result.  I would consider the woman’s actions to be fornication and thus if the man remarried, it would be included in the exception to the rule that RAD is sin.  But this is not all that Matthew 19:9 covers.  If a woman commits adultery after her wedding and before the divorce, this also makes it acceptable for her husband to divorce her and to marry another woman.

8.  “And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.  If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.” Exodus 22:16-17 (KJV) “If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.”  Deuteronomy 22:28-29 (KJV)

From these passages I conclude that the promiscuous are married in God’s eyes.  Therefore if such were to marry anyone else other than the one with whom the promiscuity occurred, this is also sin.  The New Testament teaches that whatever is considered fornication is sin in Acts 15:29 and 21:25.  These passages are talking about how the Gentiles are not to be required to obey the Law of Moses, but fornication is mentioned as an exception.  Therefore one can conclude that any sexual behavior that was not permitted in under the Law, is also to be considered sinful for New Testament Christians.  The Law of Moses is generally more strict than New Testament ethics, but on the issue of fornication it is more permissive.

THE Political Speech of 2012, Bill Whittle!

I stumbled across this video, which does live up to its title, "Best Speech of 2012." Bill Whittle is a conservative commentator, a strong voice of the patriotic alternative media (as contrasted to the liberal-dominated and very biased main stream media).

Why Banning 'Assault' Weapons is a Bad Idea

An Assault Weapons Ban, is an Assault on Liberty!
Chuck Woolery, former TV game show host and current conservative commentator and activist, presents an excellent argument against the liberal and leftist war against so-called assault weapons. Listen carefully to what he has to say in the video below:

America's Abortion Atrocity, Another Decade of Death

Since 1973 America has 'legally' been murdering millions of its innocent, pre-born citizens in the name of 'women's reproductive rights.' The video embedded below, posted on Twitter this morning by, provides some of the latest facts and figures relating to the frequency of abortion in the United States. has more gruesome statistics on its website,

Abortion is evil. God will judge America for its slaughter of innocents on the idolatrous altar dedicated to the Satanic god of pleasure and convenience.

I have come to the conclusion that America is an increasingly corrupt and evil nation because it allows abortion, embraces homosexuality, and has rejected prayer, the Judeo-Christian Bible, and the acknowledgement of God in the classroom and increasingly in many other corners of our culture. We are doomed unless we repent and turn from the evil that we've allowed to fester, form, and spread...

America needs Him.

Santa Goes to Washington

A tip of the hat goes to Bankrupting America (@BankruptingAm) for posting on Twitter a link to this video:

"CEO Kris Kringle, Santa Claus Inc. is currently the largest employer north of Greenland, but now facing the possibility of another recession if Washington fails to reach an agreement on the fiscal cliff, that could all change." -

President Obama's Unofficial Christmas Greeting, "Let It Grow"

Hat tip goes to Western Journalism @WestJournalism for their tweet of the timely video greeting from our President, "OBAMA SINGS "LET IT GROW."   It's a funny parody song that describes so well the state of our nation today and our political 'leaders' response to the so-called upcoming 'Fiscal Cliff.'

NewsBusted: Is Santa a Democrat?

Santa Obama
“44% of respondents in a new poll say they believe Santa is a Democrat.

“They may be right. Santa sits on his butt all year long, has other people do all the hard work, and takes credit for giving away all the free stuff they made."

A Far Greater Threat Than Guns

"Obama is a far greater threat to your everyday existence than guns."
Hat tip goes to Scott, @retiredfirecapt on twitter who succinctly summarized the gun control issue, as well as the first (and second, if America survives) term of President Barack Obama, in the above statement...
Shortly after seeing Scott’s tweet above, I saw Michelle Ray’s (@GaltsGirl) post on twitter with a link to Josh Bernstein’s article below:

Why I support Barack Obama as Time’s Person of the Year 

Barack Obama was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2012. An honor bestowed upon almost every president since 1927. Our 44th President is a remarkable president. No president in our nation’s history has accomplished so little in such a short time. No president has ever been elected to the highest office in the land with less experience. No president has ever been reelected with a record as remarkable as this president’s record.

Here are the top 10 reasons why I support Barack Obama as Time’s Person of the Year.

1. For the first time in our nation’s history we had our credit rating downgraded from AAA to AA+. (In terms of baseball that would be the equivalent of being sent back down to the Minor leagues.)

2. The Benghazi Cover Up. Four Americans died in Libya on Sept 11, 2012 while the President watched and did nothing. After the attack the President lied and said it was not a terrorist attack. To make matters worse initially the attack was blamed on a video. (Three months later the American People are still waiting for the truth and an apology.)

3. The President has presided over the worst economy since The Great Depression. His policies, not the ones of his predecessor are the main reason the economy will not recover. The main culprit is his signature achievement. The Affordable Care Act has kept small businesses from hiring, thus exacerbating the problems in regard to the economy. (If we repeal and replace AFA the economy will turn around a lot sooner.)

4. There are 47 million Americans on food stamps right now. (The President has certainly earned his nickname as the Food Stamp President.)

5. It has taken 219 years and 43 former presidents to spend less money than Barack Obama has spent in only his first four years. (As a result of this accomplishment according to U.S. Debt that is approximately $52,000 per person.)

6. With 23 million Americans out of work and the unemployment rate over 8% Barack Obama has not met with his jobs council in over six months. If that wasn’t enough he also removed the work requirement for Welfare. (Mr. President, the greatest social program is a job.)

7. With the threat of a nuclear Iran, the Assad regime in Syria, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, a Middle East on the verge of eruption, an unstable North Korea, a belligerent Russia, and a power hungry China, the President wants to cut our national defense as well as reduce our nuclear arsenal to pre Cold War levels. (Just for extra fun he also has skipped the majority of his intelligence briefings.)

8. Gas prices when George W. Bush left office were $1.78 a gallon. Gas Prices have routinely been over $3.50 per gallon and continue to grow even higher. (Good call Mr. President on turning down that Keystone Pipeline.)

9. Telling business owners that they are not responsible for building their own businesses. Eluding to the fact that somehow the government had a hand in building their businesses, not the blood, sweat, tears, sacrifice, risk, and money of the entrepreneurs themselves. (Mr. President, why do small businesses fear you again?)

10. Solyndra, Fisker Automotive, General Motors, Fast and Furious, Cash for Clunkers, Spectra Watt, Sun Power, First Solar, Bright Source, the list goes on and on and on.

The folks at Time Magazine sure know how to pick them. They made an excellent choice for their Person of the Year. Barack Obama has accomplished so much in so little time. With his stellar record of achievements what else could he possibly do to better his already stellar record? I know at least half the country right now is waiting on pins and needles to find out. Maybe he will be so successful that he becomes President for life? I’m sure the President’s next four years will be just as successful as his first four years.

Isn’t it ironic that the same man who is named ‘Person of the Year’ at the end of four failed years and the beginning of an undeserved 2nd term is receiving this recognition? It is about as meaningful as his receiving the Noble Peace Prize prior to any real accomplishment other than fooling half of the American voting public four years ago.

Someone on an on-line forum just asked me how I was doing. My response was “Pretty well, considering the fact that my country must endure four more years of grossly inept leadership on the part of both the Democrat and the Republican Parties. Despite the fact that no one wants to deal with the real problem with our nation - Big Government and its Big Spending ... Where "Tax the Rich' is being used by Obama as a distraction to cover his many failures and to deflect the attention away from the real problem – the nations increasing debt!”

RAD is Bad, part 1

This is series of articles designed to help professing Christians to turn from their wicked ways and get back to following New Testament ethics.  Compromise is increasing in the church.  Popular opinion among churchgoers is often in stark contrast to the very words of Jesus on many issues.  Christians need to know the word of God and get back to using it as a reference book when they are faced with important decisions.

RAD is my acronym for remarriage after divorce.  Last week in my article concerning divorce I said: 
If the preacher says these things and “until death due you part” or anything like this and if you say “I do”, but you don’t really believe it, then you are a liar.
I also mentioned last week that I was going to talk about another reason why there are so many divorces.  When we have a society where it is normal even within the church to have people getting divorced and to have RADs, then people aren’t ashamed of it anymore.  It’s like as if people don’t really get married anymore.  If things don’t work out, you can always marry somebody else.  So what’s the point in getting married then?  If you go along with what seems to be the mainstream, you may as well just be living with someone instead of getting married.  In fact, it would actually be better because, as I showed above, it is dishonest to say “I do” when you don’t really believe what you are agreeing to.  And if you get divorced, then you are breaking your promise.  If you have a RAD then you are breaking your promise even more.  (Don’t get me wrong, cohabitation is definitely sin.)  But if people believe what the Bible says about RAD and if it were taboo to disobey it as it should, then they will be less likely to marry the wrong person and much less likely to get a divorce. 

But don’t listen to my arguments--read what God says in the Bible:

Matthew 5:32, Matthew 19:9, Mark 10:12, Luke 16:18, Romans 7:2-3 and I Corinthians 7:10-11, 39.

These passages can summarized as follows:

1. RAD is sin.  It is the moral equivalent of adultery.
2. There is only one exception given in the Bible.  A divorced man can remarry without sinning only if the reason for the divorce was his wife’s fornication (i.e. it must be a sin of a sexual nature--the NIV incorrectly translates that word as “marital unfaithfulness”). 

That is mostly all you need to know.  But there are a few loose ends that, Lord willing, I will tie up in the coming weeks about this issue.  These include some minor and common sense clarifications, a defense against claims that there are additional exceptions, ways that the Scriptures concerning RAD might be used legalistically, and finally my own testimony concerning RAD.

Time for HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to Resign


There is a lot of news lately about the murder of 20 kindergartners in Newton, CT. The mainstream media is laser focused on this story. So are other progressives, who are licking their chops at the opportunity of taking advantage of another "crisis" to advance thier liberty-robbing agenda. We will hear much about the need to control guns, rather than the real contributor to the massacre: the removal of God, the Bible, and Judeo-Christian ethics and values from the classroom, the courtroom and the culture! And what about the prime perpetrator of the American Holocaust, Planned Parenthood and the millions murdered by that evil enterprise? Here is a little covered story, which may give another of President Obama's pro-death comrades a headache, too.

The video above and the text below are from the pro-life American Life League (ALL), which has a petition calling on President Barack "No Problem with Partial Birth Abortions and the Murder of Failed Abortion Babies" Obama's pro-death advocate and current Health and Human Service Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, to immediately resign for her part in the cover-up and destruction of documents in the Kansas Planned Parenthood case. That case involved Planned Parenthood's failure to report child rape victims who were forced to used their gruesome services.

"ALL has called on Sebelius to resign due to the scandal.

“"“At a time when the implementation of major changes to our health systems is drawing near we need a HHS secretary the people can trust to uphold the law and with the time to devote fully to the operation of that area of the government,” said Jim Sedlak, ALL’s vice president. “It is becoming clear that Secretary Sebelius is going to be distracted by the likely criminal allegations against her and her administration in Kansas.”

"“As the leader of ALL’s efforts against Planned Parenthood we have long known of the connections between that organization and Sebelius,” Sedlak said. “With the growing data being unearthed by organizations and individuals in Kansas, it appears her legal culpability will be much larger than first thought. Now is the time for Secretary Sebelius to resign. Anything less would be a disservice to the American people and to those who believe that government officials are not above the law and their positions should be used to serve the public: not to thwart the law in order to advance individual ideology.”

"Responding to the scandal, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has asked the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office to launch an investigation. He said he has asked the Shawnee County sheriff to investigate and asked the county’s district attorney to handle any resulting case.

“’(Schmidt) wants a complete, separate investigation from an outside law enforcement agency,’ Sheriff Dick Barta said, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal. ‘That’s why we were requested to do that.’”
During a recent hearing, District Attorney Steve Howe explained to Judge Stephen Tatum that former Attorney General Steve Six had destroyed the copies of Termination of Pregnancy (TOP) forms obtained through subpoena under former Attorney General Phill Kline. The destruction took place after Kline had filed the charges and while the case was under appeal. Howe indicated that the destruction of the evidence by Six “may have violated their own retention policy.”

Howe stunned pro-life supporters when he told Judge Tatum that the original TOP forms submitted by Planned Parenthood to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) had been destroyed in 2005 “for reasons still unclear.”

“The forms were critical evidence since a copy of the forms were supposed to be maintained in the patient files. However, when Kline received the patient files after three years of legal wrangling, it was discovered that the forms submitted to KDHE and the forms in the patient records did not match. Judge Richard Anderson had the forms analyzed by police handwriting evidence and determined that the forms in the patient filed had been manufactured.

“Recently, Operation Rescue received documents via an open records request that shows on August 10, 2005, Planned Parenthood’s Sheila Kostas made an e-mail request for information on all the TOP forms submitted by their organization for the years 2000-2004. The Kansas Supreme Court was set to hear oral arguments just a few weeks later on September 5, 2005, concerning weather Planned Parenthood and late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller would have to comply with subpoenas for patient records.

“The records show that KDHE’s Greg Crawford complied with Kosta’s request the following day. Information supplied by Crawford could have easily been used by Planned Parenthood to fill out bogus TOP forms and insert them into the patient files to cover up for the fact that they had not maintained the records as required by law.

“Without the original forms or the copies obtained by Kline, Howe told the court that he was left with an incomplete set of copies and cannot establish a chain of custody for them, making the legal hurdles in continuing the prosecution of the felony charges “insurmountable.”

"Howe did express that he is proceeding on the remaining 58 criminal counts. The next hearing in the case was set for February 22, 2012.

"“Steve Six must be held accountable for this destruction of evidence and obstruction of justice,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who was present at the hearing. “What we have is a conspiracy to destroy evidence in order to protect Planned Parenthood. The more we learn, the more apparent it becomes that former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is at the heart of this political corruption. She appointed Six and controlled him and the KDHE under her administration. We must have an aggressive investigation of this scandal.”

"Schmidt, who defeated Six in his 2010 bid for re-election, received applause from OR for his request for the investigation.

"“We hope this investigation will be done impartially and without the political bias that tainted the Sebelius administration,” said Newman. “While we are disappointed and troubled that the felony charges cannot proceed, we are pleased that 58 very serious counts related to illegal late-term abortions are moving forward. There is still some hope that a small measure of justice can still be achieved.”

"Kansans for Life Executive Director, Mary Kay Culp, attended the hearing and said that Planned Parenthood’s attorney again went on a diatribe against Phill Kline and how the case had always been without merit.

"She told LifeNews, “Despite Planned Parenthood’s pathetic efforts to once again use Phill Kline as a distraction, the facts are that two judges found probable cause to believe Planned Parenthood committed felonies, and the only reason it can’t be proved is selective and purposeful destruction of evidence at what may have been the very highest level of Kansas government.”

“"At least four things need to happen,” Culp said, “a full scale investigation by current AG Schmidt into the destruction of evidence, possible ethics charges against former AG Steve Six and co-conspirators, a vigorous prosecution of Planned Parenthood by D.A. Howe for the remaining charges of illegal late-term abortions, and a full review of this case in its entirety by the Kansas Legislature.”"

It will be interesting and instructive to follow this case, to see if justice is still obtainable in this Leftist dominated government and court system! Will President Obama have to replace another of his comrades in harms way? Add your name to the petition insisting Secretary Sebelius resign by clicking here.

Controlling Tragedies Like Newton, CT

I saw the above quote on twitter this morning. It's an answer to the American Leftists, like the President, who will predictably pounce on this crisis  and catastrophe in Newton, CT to push more of their socialist and secular agenda, namely taking guns out of the hands of all Americans.


If someone was armed at the Newton elementary school like the principal, then lives may have been saved.

Actually, it is not the gun, man, it's not the gun. It's the basic nature of man. In and of himself or herself man is a basically depraved being. Collectively it is our increasingly corrupt culture that nourishes such violence as we see in the elementary school in Newton.

The only meaningful start to an answer is a return to a fundamental respect for life, and letting God and the teaching of moral absolutes (like the 10 commandments) back in our public education system. Without it we are doomed to see Columbine, Aurora, and Newton repeated over and over again ...

God and the Bible were expunged from the schools in the sixties and replaced by the repugnant secular humanism religion. God and the Bible are not a religion. There is no such thing in our Constitution as separation of church (or God) and state. It is a contrived notion of leftist activist judges who finagled it through the courts.

We must begin to purge the secular humanist religion from our schools and weaken its influence and grip on our culture.


They took God out of the schools.

They took the teaching of morality and moral absolutes out of the schools. The 10 commandments are universal principles to live by. Teaching moral absolutes and character and values based on judeo-christian bible is fundamental to what America is. Other ideoloigies or political-religious-militaristic ideologies like Islam with its attending Sharia Law is not. Nor is socialism or communism.

They took Guns out of the schools.

Evil, Moral Relativism, and the Adam Lanzas of the world enter!!!

What did you expect? Nirvana? A social utopia?


We must recognize that the basic nature of man is corrupt.

It is just some people manifest or choose to act and misbehave in ways that are more repulsive than the rest of us - rapists, murderers, thiefs, terrorists, politicians, or lawyers...

Only if we allow God through Jesus Christ to intervene in our lives personally and individually are we not destined to remain separated from Him now and forever ... Need Him.

God Hates Divorce

This is series of articles designed to help professing Christians to turn from their wicked ways and get back to following New Testament ethics.  Compromise is increasing in the church.  Popular opinion among churchgoers is often in stark contrast to the very words of Jesus on many issues.  Christians need to know the word of God and get back to using it as a reference book when they are faced with important decisions.

14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
Malachi 2:14-16 (KJV)
(to put away = to divorce)

 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Matthew 19:6 (KJV)

There are a lot of reasons why things keep getting worse and worse.  We talk a lot about the abortion, socialism, and homosexuality on this blog.  These are all important issues, but we don’t write many articles about divorce on this blog, despite the fact that it is one of the main reasons why things have gotten so bad.  Don’t get me wrong, I know that homosexuality is a grievous sin, but it seems like Christians are overemphasizing the idea that marriage is being ruined by those who would “legalize” gay marriage.  Marriage is an institution that is crumbling in this country, but if you got a divorce, most likely it was not caused by homosexuality.  It is much more likely that it was your own damn fault.  When marriages fall apart, families fall apart.  When families fall apart, nations fall apart.

I heard Dave Ramsey say on his show that money is the number one reason for divorces.  That is a dumb reason to get divorced.  If you can’t agree on how your money should be spent, then you should compromise and give the money to a good Christian charity instead.  Problem solved.  People should learn to the secret of being content in the good times and bad.  (Philippians 4:11)  That is why we say “for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, etc.”  If the preacher says these things and “until death due you part” or anything like this and if you say “I do”, but you don’t really believe it, then you are a liar.

The government encourages divorce in many ways.  With all the high taxes it is harder to make a living without both spouses working.  But with the mother working, the raising of the children suffers.  The government offers us a free babysitting service which we call public schools to make us not so angry about that.  The states get tax breaks from the federal government for how much child support they collect.  This gives the states incentive to cause more divorces or to do nothing to prevent them.

Our first scripture passage above mentions violence and the implication is that this is talking about the violence of a man against his wife.  This is a big reason for divorce.  And alcoholism is a big reason for physical abuse.  I would consider this to be one of the few legitimate reasons for divorce.  Under the law of the Moses, if a master inflicted a serious injury on his slave, the slave was automatically set free.  (Exodus 21:26, 27)  This being true, then it surely should also be true that if a husband does this to his wife, she should not be bound to obligations of the marriage.

Another reason is the one I talked about last week: Christians marrying non-Christians.  Sometimes true Christians will marry fake Christians.  Christians need to put aside their feelings and put their potential spouses to test before proceeding with courting them.

There is yet another important reason for divorces which, Lord willing, I will talk about in my post next week.

Lunatics Are Still Lunatics Despite Law Change

In its final action of last week, the House cleared a Senate bill that would remove the pejorative “lunatic” from the United States Code.

This Christmas, Boycott Planned Parenthood!

From Personhood USA:

Dear Friend,

Each year corporations give millions upon millions to Planned Parenthood through corporate donations and grants. Now, one pro-life organization has compiled a list of all the companies that send money to the biggest abortion provider in the nation. 

This Christmas we urge you to fight for life with your wallet and refuse to buy any product made by one of these abortion enablers! Here is a list of some of Planned Parenthood's biggest corporate allies:

(QuickBooks, TurboTax, etc.)
Southwest Airlines 
(Jet Blue)
Bank of Ameica
(Four Points, Sheraton, W, Westin, etc.)
Darden Restaurants 
(Red Lobster, Olive Garden, etc.)
TD Bank Group
Pernod Ricard 
(Absolute, Beefeater, Kahlúa)
Whole Foods
Select Comfort 
(Sleep Number Bed)
(Days Inn, Dream Hotels, Joward Johnson, Ramada, Super 8, Knights Inn)

This is only a brief list of the many firms that provide funding to Planned Parenthood. Thus far the boycott of Planned Parenthood has cost the organization $40 million! This is great progress and another great way to combat those who seek to perpetuate the murder of the preborn.

For our part we will be cranking up our efforts this holiday season to not only ask for God's blessing during this holy time but also ask for your help by joining our LifeGuard Club! For $10/month for a year you will help provide life saving support for our movement as well as become a PersonhoodUSA insider, receiving exclusive updates and information you won't get anywhere else!

If you are anything like me, the Christmas season is equal parts hustle and bustle, and prayer and reflection. This year keep the loss of the preborn in your thoughts, prayers and wallets. Boycott the companies above and become a LifeGuard today!

For Life, 

Gualberto Garcia Jones

Genius The Movie

Unequally Yoked

This is series of articles designed to help professing Christians to turn from their wicked ways and get back to following New Testament ethics.  Compromise is increasing in the church.  Popular opinion among churchgoers is often in stark contrast to the very words of Jesus on many issues.  Christians need to know the word of God and get back to using it as a reference book when they are faced with important decisions. 
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
II Corinthians 6:14-18 (KJV)

The above passage is often quoted as proof that Christian should not marry a non-Christian.  And yes, that is an appropriate application of this passage and I will discuss this further later in this post.  But there are a lot of other ways that a Christian can be unequally yoked to a non-Christian besides just marrying one.

I know a Christian who had a non-Christian business partner.  The non-Christian partner was dishonest.  He cheated on paying taxes for the business by claiming purchased items for tax exemption that were not really being used for the business, but were really personal items.  It started out with just small items, but then it gradually built up to more and more expensive things.  Then the unbeliever stole from his partner and blamed him for tax cheating when he got caught.  The result was a messy lawsuit.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
II John 1:10-11 (KJV)
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
II Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)

I now return to subject of the sinfulness of a believer marrying an unbeliever.  It must be clarified that if you are already married to a non-Christian, you should remain in the marriage as long as the unbelieving spouse would have you remain.  (See I Corinthians 7:13-14.) 

But for a believer to marry an unbeliever is unthinkable.  If you do it, you will be putting yourself into a situation of temptation to be drawn into the sins that your spouse may commit and you may be tempted to abandon your faith altogether.  If you are looking for a church, do not join a church where they perform marriage ceremonies for such mixed couples.

Teaching Children How to Commit Fornication is Wrong

This is series of articles designed to help professing Christians to turn from their wicked ways and get back to following New Testament ethics.  Compromise is increasing in the church.  Popular opinion among churchgoers is often in stark contrast to the very words of Jesus on many issues.  Christians need to know the word of God and get back to using it as a reference book when they are faced with important decisions.

The week I am reposting an article that I wrote several years ago.  It is still true now just as much as it was then.

Some Christians say that “safe” sex education is important because more and more teenagers are getting pregnant and contracting STDs at younger and younger ages.  They do not want to teach abstinence only because that would “impose their faith” on others.  Real Christians could never believe in making sinful, sexual suggestions to children.  They will never believe in giving any advice about sin except to condemn it and to help bring people out of it.  Romans 13:14 says, “Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and MAKE NOT PROVISION FOR THE FLESH, TO FULFILL THE LUSTS THEREOF.” 

II Timothy 4:2, 3 says, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but AFTER OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES TEACHERS, having itching ears.”  1 Timothy 4:16 says, "Pay CLOSE ATTENTION to yourself and to your TEACHING; persevere in these things; for as you do this you will INSURE SALVATION both for YOURSELF and for THOSE WHO HEAR YOU."

This “safe” fornication education plants dirty, lustful thoughts into the minds of children.  Sin should be treated like deadly poison and the minds of children should be treated as if they are the most precious, valuable, and vulnerable thing on the planet.  “When lust has conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” (James 1:15)  Therefore, there is no “safe” sin.  If you imply that there is, then you are being deceitful even if you’re giving factual information.  Suppose a man had a disease that his knows will soon become deadly and painful, and there is complete cure that his doctor knew would work.  Would this doctor lecture him about over-the-counter pain medicines as if that were a satisfactory alternative?  Would he give him a lollipop to make him feel good?

“But among you there must not be even a HINT of sexual immorality, or any kind impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.  Nor should there be obscenity…” (Ephesians 5:3, 4)  “Have NOTHING TO DO with the fruitless DEEDS OF DARKNESS, but rather expose them.  For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.”  (Ephesians 5:11, 12)  Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”  The “safe” fornication advocates should have their mouths washed out with soap and water.  

Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  It sometimes seems like passages like this need not be in the Bible.  Isn’t this obvious?  Not to some people.  They think that sometimes it’s better to train a child in the way he shouldn’t go.  God had the foresight to see that Satan would twist their minds.  

A real Christian would never put a stumbling block in the way of a sinner.  (Leviticus 19:14b)  Not only do the false Christians corrupt their own children, but they arrogantly force this disgusting teaching on our children at our expense (through taxes).  If someone causes a Christian child to sin, it would be better for that person to be thrown into the sea with a millstone around his neck.  (Matthew 18:6-9)  II Peter 2:14 says, “Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children”.  II Peter 2:17-19 says, “These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they ALLURE THROUGH THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While THEY PROMISE THEM LIBERTY, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is HE BROUGHT IN BONDAGE.”            

It does not matter whether the statistics show that this “safe sex” teaching “works”.  Pregnancy and STD prevention are not worth the price of leading children down a path of sin.  What an unholy bargain with the devil this is!  No man can serve two masters:  for either he will HATE the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and DESPISE the other.  (Matthew 6:24)  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit.  (Matthew 7:17)  Some may say, “Teenagers are going have sex anyway, so we may as well reduce the suffering and negative economic impact of it.”  But the Bible says, “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view.” (II Corinthians 5:16)  This passage, taken in context, shows the difference between someone who has only head knowledge of what the cross means and one who really believes it in his heart.  “For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, NOT WITH FLESHLY WISDOM, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.”  (II Corinthians 1:12)

Some people say that I am self-righteous for saying these things.  What could be more SELF-righteous than saying, “I’m going to be a virgin until marriage, but I am going to teach children how NOT to be a virgin.”?  Romans 1 says that “God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves” because they know “the judgment of God, that they which commit such are worthy of death”.

They also say, “how dare you judge me?”  (Matthew 7:1 says, “Judge not lest you be judged.”)  I am not judging, but warning.  If someone wants to warn me of something that I am doing that will cause me to go hell so that my soul will be saved, then they should by all means do so.  I can take it.  Judging means passing sentence on someone (compare verses 47 and 48 of John 12).  Jesus said, “Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.”  Putting filthy ideas into someone’s mind is passing a sentence on them.  “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”  God will allow Satan to put filthy thoughts and sickening lustful urges into their flesh forever.  “God is not mocked.  For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)  Whatever deeds you have done, you will receive the same in your own body.  (II Corinthians 5:10, Galatians 6:8)

There is, however, something that you should teach your children to put on to protect themselves.  It’s the armor of God.  “For we wrestle NOT against FLESH and blood, but against PRICIPALITIES, against POWERS, against the RULERS of the darkness of THIS WORLD, against spiritual WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.”  (Ephesians 6:12)

To anyone reading this that claims to be a Christian and is still not convinced, I would say this:

How can you believe in suggesting to a child a way to commit a sin that Jesus Christ had to be beaten, whipped, and nailed to a cross for?  Could you look a bloody, exhausted, battered Jesus in the eye and still say that this is the right thing to do?  In order to be saved, you must believe in the simple, common sense idea that it is always good to teach good things, and always bad to teach bad things.  Unless you change and become like a little child, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  (Matthew 18:3)  “Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent, and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”  (James 1:21)  “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”  (II Corinthians 6:17).  “Whosoever is a friend of the world is the enemy of God…cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”  (James 4:4, 8)
