WEIRD FRIEND

WEIRD FRIEND

     Friends from my church back in Indiana called to tell me a friend of mine died of a massive stroke two days ago. He was riding on his tractor and he just died.

Do you have a weird friend? I suppose nearly all people may have one. I’m sometimes questioning how I define weird because of that friend, perhaps, when I tell you about him, you might think about doing a little research about your definitions.

I only met him once. I spent three or four different Sunday School sessions when he was in the classroom. I never had a cup of coffee with him or I never had fellowship with him at his home; and, I never met his wife (that I recall) or have met his blood family, yet, I count him as a ‘true’ friend. I know more about him that I know about most people.

While I considered him weird, others who knew him much better, also considered him weird for vastly different reasons.

It causes me to laugh when I stop to consider why others often referred to him as ‘a weird guy’ I laugh because I think of myself in the same way; and even my family often calls me weird in the same way. I can’t speak for my friend, but I consider it a compliment rather than a barb.

When one seeks to define the word, it usually contains a litany of items that encompass a variety of things others consider odd. It often includes: speech, mannerisms, dress, social skills or lack of them, pet causes, even pets, and attitude. It might be the type of speech or the quality of one’s education when speaking. You can add many others.

If I were a betting-man, I’d bet few of you would ever be called weird for why he was often called weird, especially by those who really didn’t know him. Some may have considered him eccentric, as they groped for words to describe him.

Why was he weird?

This first weird thing about him was he spent an inordinate amount of time studying the Bible. He spent time putting the Bible’s truth (his absolute) in juxtaposition with America’s Christian churches constantly changing heathen-laden subjective truth. Every time he found this confounding ‘mismatch’, he railed against it and did research about its origins, its purposes, and it outcomes….present and future. Once he had grasped the truth, he would send out the word, he would debate its veracity according to God’s teachings.

He discovered that few ‘born again Christians’ really possess any ‘fire’ to do battle with the Atheists agendas that have swamped America’s churches with its godless theology that even denies the Bible’s infallibility and the divinity of Jesus Christ while ordaining homosexuals, and embraces Same Sex Marriages, yet believes it is on its way to heaven when Christ’s returns. We were compadres in a belief that the Atheist Feminist Agenda ruined God’s earthy church in America.

Though unlettered in Theology, he knew more about Biblical Doctrine than most of our ‘modern-day’ preachers in the Restoration Movement churches, and he sent e-mails to all he could reach pointing out how God’s churches in America were swiftly becoming like those in the Old Testament: God severely punished the Israel Nation for its idolatry and allowed their hated enemies to put them in slavery for four-hundred years. He believed America was going to get its comeuppance, too. He was frustrated Sin, Hell, and Damnation is nearly missing from the pulpits of America’s churches, and he said so.

My weird friend made other Christians uncomfortable when he challenged their life style that was a mix of worldly heathenism and a ‘watered-down’ biblical foundation. While he was uncomfortable in that type of church, others were only comfortable in that type.

He was a big fan of Doc Christian’s blog, and he often replied to it in e-mail, and he often sent it to others, and pointed them to the blog. He sent encouragement to continue to defend the Bible. His inquisitive mind led him to pepper me with questions nearly every week. Biblically, he kept me on my toes. I’ll miss his questions and opinions.

One day or eon to come, when believers are in heaven, and we get to sit at the feet of Jesus and listen to him teach about his love for us, it isn’t a stretch for me to see my friend sitting close to the Savior…there by special invitation for his relentless devotion to Jesus’ Bible and his tireless efforts to win other ‘weird people’ souls so they can’t get to heaven.

Of all the weird things my friend was often accused of for why others thought he was weird.is because he nearly became incensed with other professing Christians when they failed to live the biblical truths, or to use the bible’s truths to defend God’s righteousness in the world.

DON ISENBERG actually believed a Christian is obligated to live what they confess and profess to believe. He was one weird guy, right?

JESUS VISITS TRUMP TOWER

JESUS VISITS TRUMP TOWER

 

Old Doc is having nightmares about the future of America. America’s unique system  of free elections to determine who will possess immense power and use it to guide a population of over three-hundred-thirty million people to a ‘better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren, has me in ‘night-time-sweats’, and I wake up fearful I’m just a step away from Satan’s pit of unquenchable Hell.

Evidently, the dye has been cast and the citizens of the country must choose between Hillary and Trump. Many Pilgrims might conclude that is ‘a place between a rock and a hard-spot’. Since we are governed by political powers that have openly rejected a biblical formula to govern by, all Pilgrims are left to discover which candidate best aligns itself with God’s word…if any.

Old Doc, a purveyor of  biblical truth, thought it best to help his Pilgrims sort out this critical information so we can actively help God’s influence increase, rather than decrease. Since I’m ‘old as dirt’, and the majority of Pilgrims weren’t alive fifty years ago, when America first started a rapid retreat from a biblical foundation, my through examination of the two political parties and the present day candidates, can provide you with the wisdom you need to choose to honor God or honor Satan, as you cast your ballot in November.

Donald Trump this week/ Hillary Clinton next time!

The shabbily dressed bearded man looked out of place. A multitude of people snazzily dressed for work, hurriedly passed by. Most looked askance at the beggar, and quickly turned away as he smiled and greeted them: “Have a blessed day in the Lord,” he said, a bit too loudly. Most of the people frowned, some meekly said, “Thank you.” A few returned in kind his greeting.

The limousine pulled up and an entourage of Secret Service personnel jumped out of the limo and manned the door and cleared a path. The Doorman for the Trump Tower quickly greeted Mr. Trump, and swiftly moved towards the beggar. “Shoo, get out of here,” he admonished him. “Leave, do you hear me? Scat or I might lose my job,” he drew close.

Hustling to the entrance, smiling and greeting people who stopped to gander at him, his eyes fell upon the beggar. He didn’t say a word, but pointed to him. He cocked his head in his direction and his right thumb motioned for the Doorman to remove him immediately.

The Doorman moved to grab the beggar’s arm. “Donald my son, I’ve been waiting for you,” the strange looking man hollered above the din of the noise people and automobiles create on a New York street during mid-morning traffic.

Donald stopped in his tracks, and gazed upon this man who called him ‘Donald’; it was as if he knew him. The Doorman pulled his arm.

“No, no, leave him be,” Donald instructed. “Do I know you? I don’t know you, do I? His voice softened and his demeanor changed. He gazed in silence for a few seconds. In a quizzical tone, “Do you know me?”

Smiling, he reached out his hand and shook Donald’s. “I knew you before you were in your mother’s womb,” he told him.

Donald’s eyes opened wide and his lips began to tremble. “Is that you…Lord?” he asked as his voice filled with emotion.

He put his hand on his shoulder, squeezed a little, and winked. “I’ve been waiting for you, and think we need to spend some ‘quality time’, don’t you? Perhaps, you could give me a tour, first,” he added, lifting up his head and motioning with this hand to the uber sophisticated Trump Tower.

Emitting a sigh of relief, Donald smiled. “It would give me great pleasure to show you where I live,” he said.

Filling the air with a shrill whistle of admiration, “Old Solomon himself may have suffered a quiver of envy,” Jesus remarked, gazing up at the opulence of the entrance’s décor. For the next few minutes, Donald gave Jesus his ‘personal’ tour, highlighting its beauty and providing a unique descriptive detailing of the five ‘Ws”.

“I understand your family lives here, also,” Jesus said.

“Yes, we live in the Penthouse on the fifty-fifth floor,” he replied.

As the elevator rose, “I understand it cost a million to live here, is that right?”

“That’s for our cheaper places,” Trump replied, smiling.

“I understand you told people your favorite book was the Bible,” is that correct?” Donald blushed a bit.

“Yes, I did say that.” He coughed nervously. “I confess I don’t read it like I should,” he added, as if he had just come out of the ‘Confessional box”.

Jesus chuckled. “At least our book is number one…it is even above Norman’s ‘Positive Thinking,” or the Art of the Deal,” he remarked, smiling slyly.

The elevator stopped, Donald ushered Jesus into his home. “Twenty-five million, your home cost that much, is that correct? Old Solomon and you run with the same money crowd.”

“Commit unto the Lord your plans and it shall succeed,” Donald said.

“Why don’t we go to your private office where we can get better acquainted,” Jesus suggested.

“Yes, that is a good idea,” Donald said. “Before we set down, let me show you the panoramic view. It’s silly of me, but every time I gaze out this window, it’s as if the entire world is at my feet. With your help, of course, I’m going to make America great again,” he declared.

“I recall I was tested and I too was offered all that you possess, and much, much more, if I’d just serve the correct Master, according to our enemy, Satan. “Where is your heart my son?”

Stammering some, “I like to think of myself as a ‘good man’. I know about that ‘heart and treasure’ expectation.” Silence filled the room. “I’m working on it, honest to God,” he added.

Standing beside Donald viewing the scene, “One can certainly see all ‘roof-tops’, he looked at Donald. “You might want to take a cue from David, looking at ‘roof-tops’ was what got him into a heap of trouble,” Jesus added. Trump coughed nervously. “I guess you didn’t read the scripture in Genesis bout one man and one woman cleaving and becoming ‘one flesh’,” Jesus added. Trump stood still, his eyes stinging.

“I’m sure you are wondering why I have come for a visit,” Jesus opened the dialogue. I have come to help you win the election,’ he added.

Smiling broadly, “You have come to help me win! Wow! You don’t know how great that makes me feel. On second thought, you’re Omniscient; you know everything, don’t you.”

“America has become Israel. From its biblical foundation, it soon tired of my Commandments, and they chased after gods that were ‘dead’ gods, false ones that taught philosophical man he could be his own creator and his own god. Then, they sacrificed their ‘first born’ to gods made of flesh, or wood and stone, now, America sacrifices them, not on an altar, but at the sucking sound of a vacuum.

‘That’s why I have changed and I’m now Pro-life,” Donald interrupted.

“Pro-life’! How is it possible for anyone to witness the birth of a child, and decide they have become a god, and can choose life or death for the innocent? The un-repented mother will surly spend an eternity in Hell,” he said. “It would have been better for those who kill the child to have a mill-stone around their neck and drown than harm a child.”

‘Don’t tell anyone, but I have my stupid moments. That certainly was one,” Donald confessed with a big sigh.

“I’m interested in your definition of “Make America Great Again,” Jesus said. Donald was silent, and he studied the Lord’s face.

 

Stuttering just a little, “I, I’m, it is a slogan to excite the citizens of America about moving it back closer to its original ideas when it was first founded,” he finally said.

Since your Congress, President, and Supreme Court of the past thirty years have consistently rejected my Father, his holy word, and my divinity, while America’s Founding Fathers leaned upon its wisdom, championed its principles, and ensured it would be woven into the fabric of its society, especially its educational institutions, how can your presidency change that?”

Trump answered. “I admit it won’t be easy. I’m positive we can take the first step to restoring some of this perceived darkness by appointing a different type of Supreme Court justice. “

“The Bible back in schools, prayers for all students and teachers when they want it, your Court Houses and jury rooms structured around an oath using the Bible, my Ten Commandments displayed publically, reversing Sam Sex Marriage. These things your election will produce?”

“Not so much,” Donald answered. “America has become less enchanted with the Bible.”

“So, how do you make America Great Again if you don’t accomplish these things?”

“I’m going to concentrate on ‘protecting our borders’, creating jobs for millions of the unemployed, and I’m going to build our military up so we will be recognized as the ‘Super-power’ we once were. We’ll make business and trade deals that will be favorable to America workers instead of working against them. I will energize our economy. We will move away from failed Socialist economic programs and rely upon our Capitalist economic model to revitalize our economy so the Middle Class will have a better chance at success,” he said.

“Wow! That is some litany of accomplishments.”

“And, I’m going to make the rest of the world respect America again,” Trump added.

“Donald, let me ask you a question. Is the America today better than the America, say after World War II? Are its children better educated? Do they know and live the Golden Rule better today or back then? Are your elected officials’ people of integrity more so today rather than then? Do your people lean upon the wisdom of the Bible’s principles and truths better today rather than then?”

“I know, I know, America is far worse off now because the Bible has been rejected as a book filled with the necessary wisdom to solve America’s ills, material and spiritual.”

“Duh, do you think? Even the people sang ‘Nearer my God to thee when the Titanic was sinking. You do realize America is a ‘spiritual’ Titanic, don’t you?”

“Some of my former Republican opponents have mentioned that to me.”

“I notice you don’t talk about the Bible and its importance to America’s history. I haven’t heard you lend your support for ‘Christian’ education for the poorest of the poor in your country, why not? Is it part of your plan to ‘win baby’ first, and then use your political authority and influence to bring about these needed changes?”

“’Win first baby’, yeah, that’s it. When I win, I will then tackle these thorny issues. If I’m going to make America Great Again, I suppose it will require God to be made great again.” He gazed at Jesus. “I have to truthful Lord, it isn’t going to happen over-night; It may take many years.”

“What if America doesn’t have much time?”

Donald sucked in a deep breath, “Does that mean your ‘end-time’ is soon?”

“I don’t know, only my Father in heaven knows, but, he did send Ishmael’s kin once. Who knows, he may send them again. Since America has rejected the Creator’s benevolent hand of mercy and his nearly unquenchable blessings, perhaps a ‘show and tell’ demonstration about how he feels about being betrayed by those who once knew his name and called upon him for every decision, have lost their ‘first love’. Perhaps, seventy years or seven-hundred in spiritual darkness might do the trick, don’t you agree?”

Coughing nervously and loudly, “Point noted and point well taken,” he said.

“If you are going to be the straw that stirs the country’s political drink, you better judge that by how much you can change the people’s hearts away from my arch enemy, Satan, and closer to my Father’s. He who isn’t for me is against me. On my ‘Day of Judgment’ all will know this truth.”

“It is a great political slogan, don’t you think so?”

“To me, it depends upon what those words actually mean,” Jesus replied.

“In a ‘nut-shell’, it means that ‘Joe Citizen’ recognizes that ‘We the people’ means the citizens, not Congress and the President is the ‘boss’ of America. America needs to return to its Founding Fathers’ sacred documents that were rooted in God’s Commandments. I’m going to make this happens as we change the tenor and political make-up of the Supreme Court. We are going to get the Federal Government out of this nation’s education system. We are going to give this type of power back to the states, and allow each state’s citizens to provide direction for their children. Washington has proven it can’t manage anything with excellence. Everything they touch becomes more refuge for the ‘dung heap’ of all other failed Government led programs.

“Crooked Hillary’s’ It takes a village to raise a child has left America with a multitude of children, proportionally greater in the Black Society, where it seems nobody is raising a child; but, her mantra is doing a fine job of filling up our prisons, decreasing the number of students that finish high school, and adding to the Nation’s national debt as our government forces tax payers to pay for Generational Welfare Families, and now, illegals that sneak into our country and become ‘law breakers’, and then demand taxpayers support their families, while choosing to remain loyal to their  Native  country, and demanding English become a ‘second language’ in our schools.” These un-invited aliens now fly their country’s flags and fill up our streets with protests. They claim the rights to our unique ‘freedoms’, but reject our traditional heritage of personal responsibility. They have incited many legal aliens to join their rag-tag group of dissidents that would probably be jailed or shot if they chose to protest the government in their Native countries, publicly.

“Those things are well detailed, and for America, quite important,” Jesus said. “It points out the problems, what are your solutions?”

“Well, I’m no Messiah,” he flashed a smile, “But, I’m going to do all I can to bring the Bible’s influence back into our public venues. Where the government can exercise its authority, I will be a friend to people of the Bible. I will endeavor to appoint Constitutional, forward thinking judges to the Supreme Court that realized the ‘Founders” of this nation were wiser than the rulers of today. If we can re-visit some of their decisions that have burned a hole through a majority of America’s citizens and nearly left them spiritually dead, we may be able to correct the Atheist course America has navigated for the past fifty years.”

“Donald my son, I’ve got some great new slogans you can run on: “Make America Great Again: Back to The Bible; Ancestry. Com: Discover our Founding Fathers and learn of our Spiritual Heritage; Socialists Liberals live in darkness, invite them to step into the Light: Jesus’ Word: the Bible; we have nothing to fear if the Lord is on our side; America cannot serve two masters: God of Creation or Satan who steals souls.”

“Not wanting to pour salt on a wound, but Lord, half of the people who claim there are Christians wouldn’t support those slogans.”

Laughing loudly, nearly out of control, and suddenly weeping, Jesus replied, “My people who once knew my name no longer call my name. Donald, you are right; but, I hate to admit it.”

“Lord, I hate it too. Perhaps, I can encourage America to “Give God a Try”. I’ll try that slogan. Do you think it will help?”

“Just like Chicken soup huh, it can’t hurt,” the Lord smiled. “Suggestion, tell the people you have been spending more time on your knees and seeking the counsel found only in the Bible. After-all, President Lincoln told the world he wore out his knees in prayer to the God of Creation, and that no man could call himself educated and wise if he didn’t know the Bible

I quite sure America’s elected officials are little more than dunces when it comes to the wisdom found only in my book.”

“Lord, I’ll take that under advisement,”

‘One more thing before I go. I suggest you heed the Apostle’s instructions and daily gird your loins and put on the full armor of God. Remember, America’s battle isn’t with ‘flesh and blood’, but with the prince of the air: Satan. He wants to break, steal and destroy all the good this country has accomplished.”

IT’S NOT MY JOB, IT’S MY LIFE

TRUMP BADGE 2016 002 TRUMP BADGE 2016 002IT’S NOT MY JOB, IT’S MY LIFE

     I recently visited our Constitution to familiarize myself with this incredibly prescient document. My most salient curiosity was to read where it said Government was to establish religion and hand down edicts that would provide guidance for the Nation’s people concerning what was legally allowed and forbidden by our Supreme Court…not our elected Congress.

As Andy Griffith exclaimed in his ‘world-class’ movie of humor: No Time for Sergeants, ‘Surprise, Surprise, Surprise,” he told his Sergeant King, when he had electrified the toilet seats, and when the Colonel came for inspection, he had them seats stand at attention. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the Constitution stated that our Government was forbidden to establish any form of religion…and American citizens were given ‘total’ freedom to worship any god or biblical God without interference of the ‘Founding Fathers’ or its system of laws. Why, old Doc was nearly knocked off his wobbly pegs when he didn’t find nary a word about that Atheist, fire-eating avenger of all things biblical, the ACLU. I wonder how it has wormed itself into the very fabric of any discussion about the rights of Christians to conduct their lives according to their biblical beliefs found in the Bible, and assuredly zero wording about how our Obama regime has used our nation’s treasure to force their ‘likes and dislikes’ concerning what God’s word allows, encourages, and forbids for all believers. Pilgrims, none of our present-day Same Sex populist, Atheist- agenda is mentioned by our Constitution, Bill of Rights, or any other Sacred document our Nation was founded upon..

Pilgrims, I know old Doc can have a brain-hick-up from time to time, for I often find myself in our Pantry wondering why I’m there, but, even my ‘pea-sized’ brain can figure out our Atheist elected leaders and their cohort appointed ones in our Supreme Court, have not just strayed afield a bit, they have created dictated rights and privileges, not found in it. They aren’t jurisprudent scholars; they are ‘world-class FICTION writers. They put to shame any War-games thugs, or sinisterly evil ‘Mad-men’ intent on destroying the world.

In my novel: The Theophany, Son-light Restored to a Dark World, when the enemy gains control of America, and erases all history of the Bible from the citizens’ memories, the first thing they do is carry out a mass execution of the Supreme Court judges. Why? They easily recognized they haD become corrupt and the most powerful force in the country. Their immediate mission was to make the people fear them more rather than their legal system’s appointed supreme power brokers.

With every edict, that often suppresses the majority’s will, our Supreme Court dishonors our Constitution, spits upon our ‘Founding Fathers’ legacy, and ignores our rights and privileges guaranteed by this sacred document. What is the response of God’s people in America? Sadly, it is the same one that has been in place for fifty years. Don’t mix politics and religion! When I come to worship Jesus, I don’t want to be told how to vote. Jesus didn’t care… why should I?

In a short period of time when old Doc is on his way to prison with the few other believers in America who won’t bow down to the dictates of our Supreme Court, as they declare the Bible is ‘Hate-speech’, and all references to the Socialist’s/Communists’ most dear political agenda plays out: Abortion on demand, Same Sex Marriage, soon to be added: NAMBLA, and all gender sex ploys that will evidently even declassify all Pedophilia, biblical people will be given one last choice: Serve Jesus Christ and live by his principles, or chose to serve other gods, who serve Satan. While the Muslim terrorists are plotting the demise of our Nation, our court system and party politics may well beat them to the punch.

Pilgrims, I have come to a conclusion about how ‘so-called’ Christians aided and abetted the demise of a biblical foundation in America. For five decades, they not only separated Church and State, they forgot that living a Christian life has little to do with one’s job; it has everything to do with one’s life. Pilgrims forgot their job was just the superficial public persona. God and fellow believers cheered for all manner of professional business people who provided a public environment that left little doubt about this business’ love of Jesus. The workers that make things and repair them so they work better as they conduct their business spaces where Christ was welcomed enhanced each and every task. A sense of pride should be evident when anything biblical is manifest that possesses the tiniest opportunity to present Jesus’ cross so that salvation may not only be offered, but accepted.

For decades, Liberal Christians have lived in a delusional world believing they could support godless political wonks whose great desire was to bring about the demise of a Nation’s love, support, and dependence upon a biblical God. Their votes for local Liberal power-brokers ensured one day America would consider the Bible fiction, not conducive to its lust for all things Atheist, and not harm the kingdom of God on earth…and particularly, it evidently seldom crossed these mutton-heads as they pulled or marked the ballot to elect the arch enemies of a holy God,  one day it would come back to bite them as none of these types of voting Christians can avoid the blame for what has happened to America… and what old Doc is certain lies in store for the faithful, as believers are persecuted for their faith in Jesus.

As old Doc searched the document, I looked for any specific reference to a separation of CHURCH AND STATE. So, what do you think I found?  Several references, a handful, a couple, nope, not one was found. This piqued my curiosity and then, I thought: it is quite difficult to find this Church/State idea when the Founding Fathers couldn’t fathom how a man/woman could possibly live their lives with a neatly compartmentalized decision-making process, bereft of using the Bible’s truth to guide them when navigating one’s personal life, so the idea of a country’s legal system demanding people do such a stupid thing, never occurred to them it would one day be the ‘law of the land’. Hello Liberal Christians! Welcome to the loony-tune biblical world of Oz!

It doesn’t matter if I’m planting flowers, writing my blog, dinning out with my bride of fifty-three years, making a transaction at the  bank, looking for my golf ball in the woods, singing during Sunday worship, preaching a sermon to the inmates on Friday night, shopping at Walmart for my food, buying ‘Feed corn’ for the deer and other animals we feed, daily, voting for candidates, debating anyone about any facet of politics or cultural societal differences, listening to music or paying for my entertainment, you can’t separate me from my Bible and my faith. Every decision I make, and I’ve made some stupid ones, believe me, is filtered via the use of biblical principles. Cesar and the State don’t matter. I obey Cesar, not because the State demands it, but, because my Lord Jesus expects it. My life is both my job and the entire total of the life I live. Pilgrims, is this how you manage your life? If you don’t, how do you choose to honor Christ with your life?

My government, headed by the ACLU, demands I live my life in absolute separation of CHURCH AND STATE. What chagrined me most about this legal edict is that they, who are godless heathens and promote the religion of Atheism, aren’t expected to do the same. People of no faith and no god demand those who have faith in a living God and his only son, Jesus Christ, conduct their lives as if both are on equal footing for living life. Our corrupt elected Congress and President and Supreme Court Judges evidently don’t see how ludicrous this expectation is. For either camp to accomplish its stated goal, all have to become liars and people who possess little if any integrity. In the light of these two vastly different approaches, ideologies about man’s purpose and origin, comes the evil, sinful Visigoths that demand they be given the right to structure my life, instead of allowing me to let Jesus take the wheel.

I can’t speak for other Pilgrims, but they can take my life, put me in prison, and steal all my worldly goods, but they can’t separate me from my God and they can’t force me to live my life in an illogical, heathenistic culture that demands all things in my life be Church/State

Unfortunately, I’m well aware that most Pilgrims have ‘walked the biblical fence’ concerning this edict, and God the Creator is missing from America’s most sacred public venues…from the White House to our Nation’s Court-house-steps, to the halls Congress and nearly every place of public education.

In the past, inwardly, most Pilgrims ranted and raged in \dissent, but, remained silent, and then pulled the lever that supported God’s political enemy and we helped those creatures to mock a holy God and demean Jesus’ sacrifice, by helping those who would do the ACLU’S bidding by approving of their actions…with our support of a political party that fought for the demise of a Biblical Nation.

Johnny Paycheck became famous with his song: Take this job and shove it. Old Doc wishes that all Pilgrims come to this resolve:  the idea of CHURCH/STATE is a myth akin to the Lock Ness Monster, and should be treated as such. It is a figment of the Socialist/Communist imagination.

There is one caveat, Pilgrims must know that being a biblical person means their life will be Godly; it also means that this permeates their job.

VOTING PRIMER FOR PILGRIMS

VOTING PRIMER FOR PILGRIMS

     While Moses was away up on Mt. Saini listening to Jehovah’s instructions concerning how he was going to lead the Israelites to the ‘Promise Land’, the people in the camp thought he tarried a bit too long and they decided to build an altar and put up their own gods. The golden calf sure looked ‘pretty’.

Jehovah finally ended his confab with Moses and sent him down to his people carrying stone tablets with the Ten Commandments written on them by the very finger of the Creator.

Before Moses reached the bottom of the mountain, he knew something had changed. A bacchanal celebration had broken out…and Aaron, Moses’ brother was the ‘leader of the band’.

The Bible records that over three thousand Israelites were killed (executed) that day as they chose to continue to defy God and Moses. Ummm, do you suppose the God of love might have a ‘jealous bone’ that shows from time to time?

Shirts or Skins! When I was working my tail off to make the ‘starting-five’ on the Varsity Basketball Team during my high school years, I wanted to be one of the five that wore Skins…no jersey. It was a clear sign that you were one of the best players.

As old Doc surveys the present day political situation in our nation, he can’t help but think about the distinctive difference between ballplayers wearing a practice jersey on none at all. From all I can ascertain, too many Pilgrims have become biblically confused about which team they are on. In the light of this scriptural travesty that may well hand an easy victory to God’s enemies in November’ Presidential Election, I thought it incumbent of me to shed biblical light into a dark hole where Satan’s henchmen reside.

First, I want each Pilgrim to remember a Cardinal Rule. When all else fails, read God’s Ten Commandments, and read Thomas’ Paine’s pamphlet: Common Sense.

Regardless of how ‘fuzzy-wuzzy’ one might be about the Trump Presidential nomination, all Pilgrims will be faced with a choice that will either honor God or honor Satan. While there are many things that gall old Doc about the Republican’s nominee, every believer, in order to honor Jesus Christ, must do their own due-diligence before a vote is cast. While many Washington elites are in ‘sack cloth and ashes’ about the ‘peoples’ choice, for they are about to discover the sage advice Thomas Paine wrote before our Country was officially a country, the government is for the people and they hold the power, a political…and I pray a biblical revolution is about to happen in America…if Pilgrims heed God’s instruction book and vote for him and against his enemies, it will happen.

Now wait just a minute, I’m a ‘card carrying’ Christian from the church where Deuteronomy Skaggs preaches. How dare you question my Christian credentials, I can hear the moaning and groaning…can’t you?

Old Doc is going to make this voting decision simple for all Pilgrims. The Commandment said thou shalt not kill (better translation is Murder). Hilary’s Gang wants Abortion up to the very hour or minute of birth. When conception happens, does not matter to these Atheists. Yes, many will claim they are Bible carrying people. Doc suggests that too many people carrying a Bible don’t know why they carry it. Take the Hillary gang. The last time we saw a Clinton carrying a Bible was when Bill went to confession about that intern ‘server’. None of them even pretend to be a part of that biblical scene any longer. If you cast a vote for Hillary, you are in support of killing the unborn! I recently posted on Facebook and article that science has proven there is a halo-like affect when the sperm meets the egg: the ‘little’ big bang, if you will. It definitely defines when life begins. For Pilgrims, it proves something miraculous happens, when God gives mankind a soul

If you support the Hillary Gang, you also support rewarding sinful behavior, for most abortions are for unwed girls that chose to fornicate without a care about its consequences. You also don’t think it necessary to hold the ‘sperm donor’ accountable for the baby’s life…or for ending it.

Worst of all, you approve of our tax dollars spent on America’s Abortion Mill: Planned Parenthood. You also support this criminal enterprise’s marketing of baby body parts, as a journalists ‘sting operation’ exposed , recently, showing corporate America and Planned Parenthood doctors and executives wheeling and dealing for profit as they coveted parts: lung, heart, and brain,  that are being sold for research, and I guess, implants. How sinful this ‘Art of the Deal’, evidently, they are using Trump’s knowledge to get the best deals, can be measured by how our legal system is now working to try and imprison these Anti-abortion journalists for exposing Planned Parenthood’s depraved behavior to the world. Your vote for Hillary adds your hallelujah! A hundred million babies have had their brains sucked out during Doc’s life-time.

God’s Bible is filled with instructions about how his people are to accept deviant people who love the un-natural Homosexual life style. The Apostle Paul also writes about how the homosexuals have embraced a life that is forbidden by the Creator. Doc surmises it is just simple math: unless a male and a female have sex, you can’t propagate and multiply, can you? The Pilgrims must answer the question: if it is just another ‘choice’, what happens to the human race? If you embrace this sin when you vote for Hillary’s Gang that champions this cause, how can you honor Jesus Christ? How deviant you ask? Our government, and Hillary’s Gang is about to unleash their Atheist hate God’s Bible, when all else fails, attack upon State’s laws and economic structure as they force Pilgrims to endorse their ‘bathroom agenda’, where males with penises can share a bathroom with your daughters in our schools, and women without them can share the bathroom with the boys. This is Hillary’s Gang’s agenda. It is already in their Presidential Platform. She has already spoken openly about it on our national media. “It is the right thing to do,” she touts. Unless you haven’t read God’s Bible in the recent past, you may not know God considers this an abomination! Don’t take Doc’s word for this truth, check out the scriptures: Gen. 19:1-11, Lev. 18:22, 20:13, Judges 19:16-24, Romans 1:18-32. From these scriptures, there isn’t any ‘wiggle room’. If you are claimed by the blood of Jesus, and you believe the bible is inerrant, then you cannot use your Christianity nor God’s bible to disagree with God about your ideas and your sense of ‘fairness verses Gods’  edict about deviant behavior and choices.

Trump may not agree with this biblical declaration, but it changes nothing! You are either Skins or Shirts!

Pilgrims, this Hillary Gang is responsible for our new Same Sex Marriage law that now forces Pilgrims to accommodate them and to give your public, tacit approval.  In Romans one, the Apostle Paul warns about Christians approving those things the Creator calls sin. Do you understand this equation? They aren’t satisfied with their legal victory from a corrupt, mostly Atheist Supreme Court, they want to force us to bow down to their sin and help rejoice in it. The fight about the LGBGT bathroom agenda is just the last salvo across biblical peoples’ bow. When God’s leaders, once again act like Ostriches, God’s enemies’ next target will be NAMBLA. For Pilgrims who are too naïve for their own good, it means that homosexuals want to have a legal right to conduct a sexual relationship with young boys. If Hillary’s Gang wins in November, Pilgrims can look for this to become law. The ‘Chicken-Hawk’ society is just a vote away!

When Joshua led the Israelite nation into the Promise Land, God told them to slay the entire enemy. Once they were in military control, they rejected God’s instructions. Rather than obey God, they welcomed the enemy, they inter married and had children with the women. They were a thorn and a plague upon the Nation that led them into bondage for four-hundred years.

While Doc isn’t advocating any harm or evil be done to illegal aliens, we need to demand Trump’s political agenda address foreign people, living in America be forbidden to fly another country’s flag in public for a celebration or a protest. If it is flown, it must have Old Glory waving above it. If any person refuses to honor our flag, they should be deported immediately. We don’t need some half-baked jury-rigged court system to assign innocence or guilt. If one is seen in public honoring their native flag, it’s a done deal. Send them home! It is the least proud Americana can do to honor the blood and treasure we have spent on foreign lands to rescue people from evil. If aliens aren’t proud to live in America; they need to be sent home where they can fly any flag they choose…if they dare.

If Pilgrims cast a vote for Hillary’s Gang, you approve Communist political groups like Black Lives’ Matter. It is financially supported by Soros, a Socialist/ Communist that desires to destroy our economic system of Capitalism. Their goal is to be a racially divisive voice that stirs up racial hatred where there is none. They seek government anarchy. This will be accomplished when citizens fear the law keepers and attack their attempts to keep citizens safe from criminals. If you vote for Hillary’s Gang, you lend your support to political pimps like Al Sharpton and his ilk that is a ‘bottom feeder’ on any racial divide that can be conjured up against a white society.

If Pilgrims cast a vote for Hillary’s Gang, they reject God’s scriptures about a Godly Marriage. Eph. 5:21-ff, and Proverbs 31:10ff. You embrace the Atheist Feminist agenda that is so confused it casts support to a woman who stood by her man while he diddled a variety of beautiful women, in a very public manner, not his wife, rubbed her nose in his adultery, and convinced her to care out vicious personal attacks upon the women that claimed he raped them, all in the name of Party Politics.

The Apostle Paul wrote that any Christian that refused to take care of his family is worse than an infidel. He writes to the Thessalonians that a man should not eat if he does not work. Solomon gives a descriptive look at a sluggard who is too lazy to eat. If Pilgrims cast a vote for Hillary’s Gang, you whole-heartedly support the forty plus million people on welfare who won’t work and don’t have educational skills to work…but they can make a trip to the mailbox or bank monthly to pick up the money our tax dollars provide…which, regardless of party affiliation, evidently, tax payers don’t have a vote, yea or nay. Thank you congress! This is one of many reasons why we need Term Limits!

Pilgrims, I’m upset that we don’t have a ‘biblical candidate’ that can pass a spiritual litmus test, but we don’t. What we do have is an extremely stark difference between a Socialist and a Capitalist. If you vote for Hillary’s Gang, you believe government can solve our Nation’s problems. You believe if you remove personal responsibility and accountability for one’s choices in life as they pursue happiness, peoples basic needs will be met…by your tax dollars…and if you throw enough money at every problem Washington can solve any problem. You don’t mind that your tax dollars will be spent to support ‘dead-beats’ that continue to propagate generations of welfare people regardless of how much money is spent. It is estimated over 40 Trillion dollars have been spent since 1960. I think this is a very ‘low-ball’ figure.

Hillary has a plan to create jobs! If it hasn’t been in association with a State or Federal Government, she has never created one job. Trump has created tens of thousands of public jobs for people of all faiths, colors, and nationalities as he built a business empire. If you needed a job, who would you want to interview with to get a job?

Hillary’s Gang has already diminished your religious freedoms and trashed our Constitution. If you vote for her, our Second Amendment will soon be replaced and create a society where ordinary citizens will be unarmed and helpless prey for the increasingly violent criminals who live in America. The unknown mystery for Doc:  how can a black society continue to support a political machine that has created an underclass of people that has endured years of ‘black on black’ crime that enslaves its people: eighty percent of all crime is committed by black criminals?

If you vote for Hillary’s Gang you are in agreement with having ‘open borders’. ISIS will love that! In fact, they are already enjoying this foolish blunder. Only God knows how many Muslim terrorists are plotting our Nation’s demise.

Teachers are on the march and are withholding their services in Detroit. If one surveys its present education outcomes, the kids may be better off if they don’t teach. If you vote for Hillary’s Gang, you agree that the Teacher Union has been a boon for America’s public school children, despite the fact our students are nearly the lowest rated students in math and science in the world! Plus, you like the idea that too many lazy, incompetents can’t be fired, but you can.

Personally, I know that God doesn’t really care if America is a Socialist or a Capitalist country. The cross of Christ burns brighter and possesses the power of influence during times of persecution. Doc is a proud jingoistic American, and it makes a great difference to him, and I pray all Pilgrims, whether this country moves farther away from its once foundational biblical roots and closer to a Communist ideology and one that will openly punish dissenters. If Pilgrims aren’t aware, New York now levies fines, up to 150,000. For each breach of Transgender etiquette: refusing to address the IT with their preferred new gender name, at work. Doc isn’t making this stuff up!

I’ll close with this last enjoinder. The biblical future in America is wrapped in NINE BLACK ROBES. The next President will probably get the chance to appoint two or three SUPREME COURT JUDGES. It seems idiotic, but the most powerful nation on the planet is controlled by nine ‘unelected’ people. The judges now in power don’t honor our Constitution, so they continue to create laws that don’t exist, and most assuredly were never intended to be law by our nation’s founding fathers, and are edicts that are against the majority of its citizens and an impingement upon States Rights. If Hillary’s Gang wins, all biblical values will cease to be a part of this country’s social fabric, as they are presently just hanging on by their interpretation of God’s SUGGESTIONS.

Pilgrims, if old Doc’s apology hasn’t challenged your spiritual resolve to honor God’s Bible and his Son’s sacrifice on the cross, America is doomed to become a Third-world country.

DRESSED

DRESSED

     At the ‘check-out’ line at our favorite grocery market, I sure Pilgrims are often highly entertained by the magazines covers offering all the latest ‘dirt’ the Tabloid Media can dig up on the world’s ‘rich and famous’, usually emanating from Hollywood…that often are just fabricated lies to entice us to buy their ‘gossip rags’. Each is shown with some beautiful woman in a pose, dressed in as little as the law will allow, letting the world know they are dressed up and certainly have an important place to go.

Pilgrims, I must admit that I’m of the generation just after Noah’s, evidently, because this ‘modern’ church dress isn’t one I fancy. In fact, I’m not enamored by our entire country’s daily work dress. I’m from the ‘old school’ where untidy and unkempt were quickly associated with lazy and disorganized ‘stinking-thinking’ behavior. ‘Dressed-down’ Fridays have proven to be a disaster for the management of people to move from ‘good to great’ because the business world has forgotten R H I P. I believe our Military is quickly traveling down that misbegotten road.

I guess it is just old Doc on his ‘band-wagon’ again spewing out complaints a mile a minute about the good old days of yesterday, but when I read in the book of Leviticus about God’s ‘dress code’, which included conduct at his altar, and what Moses was instructed to do for Aaron and his sons, as they carried out God’s incredibly exact Priestly duties to roll back the sins of the nation of Israel on the Day of Atonement, I can’t help but winch when I think of how are modern day preachers approach God when they are prepared to deliver a message from his holy book to help believers live a more holy life for Christ. Is he pleased when preachers dressed like a ‘Truck Driver’ with a long-haul load to California, present the word? Is God pleased when a congregate, that wears an Armani suit on work days, attends worship in shorts and flip-flops on Sunday? I know dress hasn’t anything to do with one’s salvation!

Have you noticed how the media has subtly changed its ‘dress code’? Evidently, the Feminist touch has been replaced by an attempt to be much more ‘lady-like’. Seldom does one see even a 7 doing the news or even a sports program. Evidently, a 9 is about the least grade that is acceptable today. The ‘pants’ woman is about to pass into history when it comes to our ‘newsmakers’ telling us about the news. The Feminist highly promotable fat woman is passé. Oh you’ll find it in Hollywood, but in the real world joy about obesity is always proven to be a crock and a monstrous lie.

Only in our government will one find an open acceptance of obese people while its Surgeon General spends millions of dollars teaching its citizens about the dangers of obesity. Nothing has changed since Adam and Eve. Next to a marriage’s finances, obesity in a marriage is one of the major reasons for divorce because physical beauty, or lack of it, leads to infidelity in a marriage which leads to the divorce. A man’s sex organ is his eyes!

Evidently, corporate America has re-discovered the advice found in various books about the wisdom of ‘dressing for success’. Despite their need to be ‘Politically Correct’, they can’t deny this information’s truth: color, style, beauty, and body language greatly affect the intended message. Any message delivered from a background that encapsules the framing of the messenger that enables the listeners to focus upon one’s eyes and mouth enhances the ability of one’s message to impact its intended listeners. This is why a dark suit or dress in combination with a white background and a colorful scarf or tie presents the optimum opportunity to hook the audience. It is why a light blue garment is attractive when ‘working the room’ where one seeks to have people trust them and like them. It is why a brown suit prepares an environment where people consider equals works best. It is why bright colors on women help them get a man’s focus and attention. It is why pants for a woman in a business setting don’t set well with men. If you doubt old Doc, when those business men and women of corporate America choose people to advertise their services and products, why doesn’t their Spokesperson wear those pants?

A leader who doesn’t look, speak, or behave differently than other Pilgrims, often misses the intended mark because we don’t want to follow someone like us, we want to invest our allegiance into someone we believe is capable of leading us to places we don’t dare go, or have the guts to dream we can arrive at that place on our own. Like it or not, our preachers possess the ability to take us to those often intimidating places. Certainly, God’s Word is the fuel that makes it all possible, but even Paul said those who bring good news have beautiful feet.

Various data research says 6,775 people die each day in America. How one dies doesn’t really matter, but many would differ with Doc. If one is gracious, according to the latest church research, about forty-six percent of Americans’ claim to be Christians. If old Doc’s math is right, that means of the people who die each day, fifty-four percent are dead heathens. Thousands of people dressed up to say ‘goodbye’.

A number of years ago, a story about a unique type of burial made ‘Headline News’. A blonde, obviously dyed, seventy-five year old Texas woman made quite a stir when she insisted she be buried in her Caddy convertible, with the top down, wearing her expensive, gaudy jewelry, mostly diamonds, to prevent any of her ‘blood sucking kin to get their hands on her property, plus, to her way of thinking, she was dressed in style.

It is amazing the amount of money humans spend for burials, often to make a statement, which the world will little note nor long remember. I wonder if God laughs at our shenanigans. Physical death is the person’s journey that ends usually at the point in the road that warns about a Dead End. I’m positive God laughs at Satan when a believer dies.

Pilgrims, I recently heard a song about an old man dressed in his ‘Go to Heaven Meeting Clothes’. While on earth, he wasn’t a persnickety man or dresser, but he insisted he be dressed in his ‘Sunday Best’ because he was going to see his beloved wife and family. He wanted to make an impression on her, and make it easy to spot his arrival.

Of the millions of people in America that die each year, a majority of them will be dressed up and no place to go. History will mark them as possessing little utility, and perhaps, they will be good worm food for God’s creatures.

Pilgrims, who says that God doesn’t possess a good sense of humor? The majority of this world serves idols and promotes false gods…and when they die, they will discover they are all “ Emperors’ without clothes. Spiritually naked and exposed, Stan will laugh at their foolishness. While God will get the last laugh, I think he will mourn.

“For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with the immortality, then, the saying that is written will come true, “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” I Co. 15:53-54

Pilgrims, have you picked out your ‘Go to Heaven Meeting dress? Dress right!

LAUGHTER

LAUGHTER

 

Pilgrims, I had to visit an ENT doctor last week to get the wax cleaned out of my ears so my Hearing Aids function better, and my wife’s life does too. We arrived a few minutes early, and after an hour passed, I asked the doctor’s Receptionist why the delay? He was at the hospital and was running late. “There goes today’s schedule,” I said to my wife, and we laughed. We are retired and seldom do we have anything so important a delay ruins our day. The Reception Room was filled with other couples. We could have been crumps; we chose to fill the room with laughter. Today, I can’t recall the things we laughed about, only that we laughed often as we spent time in communication. Since we have been married for fifty-three years, I’m sure much of the laughter was at our expense. Traveling as an ‘Alien’ in an ‘Out-of-body’ experience, for the first time through Old Age, we have discovered laughter helps a heap. When people can laugh at their wrinkles and dark spots, their sudden awareness of hair mysteriously disappearing (my plight at seventy-five), while choosing to reminisce about the young virile man and the ‘drop-dead’ gorgeous young woman, who can still turn Old heads, at seventy-one, finds that a ‘Spoonful of laughter’ makes God’s medicine go down much better.

We received stares and I could just hear the wheels turning in their heads. “Why don’t they shut up, they are disturbing me, this must be their third marriage, they are giddy, wished my husband laughed with me, wished my wife looked like her; I’d laugh too, I could listen to her laugh all day.” Perhaps, it was only in my imagination.

While our bodies continue to breakdown at a rapid pace, well, it seems so, our ability to laugh and enjoy one another’s company has greatly increased our capacity to love more deeply and become more devoted to one another. They say it takes eleven face muscles to frown, and it takes twelve to smile…so God expects us to work a little more to smile. I think it is part of his spiritual-health program, don’t you?

Pilgrims, the Creator knew this. Proverbs 15:13 – A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. Genesis 21:6 – And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, [so that] all that hear will laugh with me. Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

I confess that each day I watch the news from around the world and I see little to laugh about. America is a land I no longer recognize for it grows more evil and godless each day. It remains a land of opportunity, but those newbies want you and me to provide them a living so they can pursue happiness…whether we choose to lend a helping hand or not. Our government agrees!  It shills out our hard-earned money to provide for them. Soon, our Presidential Election will be determined by those who support the government verses those seeking a change in Washington’s ‘business as usual’. I suppose one side is going to get the ‘last laugh’.

Pilgrims… look on the bright-side, if God Almighty made Sarah laugh at ninety, evidently, the Creator intends for his people to laugh until your calendar reaches zero.

Science and God never disagree; scientists and God often disagree, but, lately, the medical profession has made a ‘leap-of-faith, and joined God’s side about the benefits of laughter for his crown of creation: human beings. Hospitals are becoming more Holistic in their approach to healing the human body from all manner of ills, and belly-laughs are one of the doctors favorite prescriptions. While the good Lord knew all the time, researchers have discovered a good dose of laughter lessens stress, relives tension on the hormones, improves neurochemistry, settles the heart and boost the immune system.

Depression suppresses the immune system the hormones epinephrine and cortisol are quickly reduced when laughter floods the body.

The writer, Norman Cousins, in his book, “Anatomy of an illness as Perceived by the Patient”, calls laughter ‘Inner Jogging’ because a loud ‘belly-laugh’ gives every system of the body a good workout.

While my wife and I may have made ourselves a nuisance in the doctor’s Reception area, and neither can recall what we laughed about, both clearly recall the wonderful sounds we made that filled the air with joy. “We were the only couple that spent the time talking to each other while we whiled away a few minutes of the remaining minutes our Maker has left for us to enjoy,” my wife duly noted as we left the doctor’s office.

This past week a young couple from our church, still working on a marriage gone bad, ended it. He claimed she had betrayed his trust. He strangled her and threw her down a well.

Life will always be filled with tragedies and we will get a choice of how we trust God. While the pain may take years to subside, laughter is one of God’s best prescriptions. Pilgrims, choose wisely

One last thing about laughter, daily, Satan is in constant laughter as God’s created beings reject a holy God and his instruction book about living with integrity, and increasingly fall deeper into sin and self-degradation. Can’t you hear his howl? One day Satan’s laughter is going to cease. His laughter is going to become only sorrow, fear, pain that never ends, and Jesus Christ will have the last laugh. As the sage has said well, “He who laughs last laughs best.”

Pilgrims, when did you last laugh so well that you could feel your body being healed…physically and spiritually? It may be time to put on our ‘jogging shorts’.

IT

IT

     Old Doc recently submitted a query to our Restoration Movement’s most read publication about printing a couple of articles that I have previously posted on the blog, and I was told they wouldn’t print them. They classified my work as ‘negative’ and they were only going to print positive things about a Christian’s walk with the Lord.

Of course old Doc would love to write articles that were only about joy, sunshine, praise, and ‘happy’ times in God’s kingdom in America, but all Pilgrims know this won’t win victory for Jesus. Since we live in a Democracy and have a Republic form of government, where we hold elections to send our representatives to Congress to vote for our majority voice, and elect a President to be the ‘boss of all bosses’, and they appoint Federal Judges…and our Supreme Court Judges, and they hold the future of our country in their powerful political hands, and the biblical people haven’t fared well with the non-biblical outcomes that have been handed down as if they were divine-fiat.

I suppose there have been ‘IT GIRLS’ throughout the ages. According to scripture, Sarah and Bathsheba must be counted in that number. I suspect, ole Adam thought Eve was one!

Norma Jean Mortenson became the most famous IT GIRL and proved once again people from the wrong side of the tracks can still find success and fame. She also proved that despite all her God-given blessings, without Christ the rich and famous are more likely to ‘crash and burn’ than all of us sevens. Why do Pilgrims think she became the most famous? Discounting her iconic pose with her white dress being blown up as she stood on a New York grate that became Calendar frenzy for teenage boys and adult men? I think scripture captures that answer well. Marilyn’s physical beauty was molten hot with sultry sexuality…and men’s ‘sex button’ is visual. To King David, Bathsheba fit the bill for the IT GIRL of his time.

I’m not sure how Pilgrims will assess this article as it seems a bit awkward, perhaps, too prurient in nature? Old Doc has done this for a purpose. Scripture teaches Pilgrims that God created man and woman, and gave them the pleasure of passion and sex for the marriage’s spiritual health, as well as its physical one…and to multiple so the earth is replenished.

While most Pilgrims played ‘Rip Van Winkle’ for the past forty years, and America changed from a strong Patriarchal Society into a weakened Matriarchal one, and the Atheist Feminist agenda rejected the Bible as ‘hate speech, and our wussy  mostly white-men Congress worshipped at this godless goo altar, the Bible was removed from our country, Prayer was removed from our schools, colleges, and Court Houses and jury rooms. Christian, especially women, flocked to the ballot box and voted for heathens as they swamped our biblical culture into a mind-numbing submission.

The IT Factor has become more fashionable in today’s lexicon. One can often hear one say that don’t know how to define the word, but when they see it, they know it. I’m thinking this terminology is akin to the Supreme Court Justice, Potter Stewart’s declaration about Porn: “I know it when I see it.” This past Christmas season the little blond haired girl that played Dolly Parton in her ‘Coat of Many Colors’ story had that IT Factor.

Unless you have been away on a mission to Mars for the past year, you have to be aware our heathen culture has embraced the usage of a new meaning for the word IT. This IT is different than anyone imagined. This IT comes express travel via the compliments of our Atheist homosexual crowd…and our feminist ‘Nanny Gate’ culture that has reared psychopath bullies with ultra-thin-skinned ‘you offended me’ children because you dare to disagree with me attitudes.

My opinion, like it or not, Pilgrims are going to be forced to accommodate and support the new IT in America. The first level and all other levels of sin and degradation of God’s greatest creation: Man and woman, unless you want to be fined or imprisoned.

In my life time, in my home, in our Outhouse, was the only place one could find a ‘restroom’ without a sign: Men or Women/Boys or Girls. Even though the Outhouse was a two-holer, I figure my parents didn’t feel any need to mark it Men and Women…it only had one door.

The introduction of the word IT in America demands that we don’t dare offend the homosexual crowd because we find the past idea of marking men’s and women’s bathrooms as sane and logical actions to provide necessary facilities and privacy, out of step with the Sodomites who want all signs removed so the Gender/Transgender crowd (actually it is a tiny  percent of citizens) aren’t offended since they are so confused about whom God created.

I pray that all Pilgrims will be ready to storm the local school Board of Education and demand they reject this foolishness and refuse to take the signs off the restrooms and refuse to allow the Gender-benders and Transgender leaders to change thousands of years of hygiene protection for children. This bacchanal political juggernaut is steamrolling State Government with economic blackmail. Atheist, secular Fortune Five-hundred companies are in support of this heathen culture and are openly against anything biblical. You can look for this same crowd to demand our Federal Government use its monetary clout to force states to accommodate these Sodomites.

Unless all Pilgrims unite and are willing to openly enter the fight, these enemies of God will steam-roll believers, and soon, the Bible will be considered “Hate Speech’.

Do Pilgrims really want a society where men with penises spend time with our young girls in our IT marked Restrooms? Evidently Georgia does! North Carolina is being punished and economically blackmailed…it doesn’t. This state’s government refused to allow it. Most of the major music bands, i.e. Springsteen is leading the way as they have cancelled scheduled shows in North Carolina, until the signs come off the restroom doors. Pilgrims, this debauchery nightmare isn’t in the future, it is now.

Are Pilgrims aware that all of our sacred documents are under attack and this same group wants all mention of gender removed from the writings. It seems ludicrous and beyond any sane person’s or Nations’ imagination, but, it is on the horizon and will one day take place unless Pilgrims refuse to allow it to happen. Our votes can derail this pagan event. With one vote cast by every Pilgrims, we can chase all of these congressional supporters into retirement.

If the corporate world can use economic blackmail to create an IT society, Pilgrims can keep it from being successful by conducting our own economic blackmail: boycott Christmas shopping and refuse to purchase their heathen goods and services for the entire month of December. Would you choose to be a part of the solution?

THE NEW BULLY

THE NEW BULLY

     They call themselves the Millennials, and our Government gives them legitimacy. They are a generation spawned from the second generation Feminist. They are the offspring of the third generation of Peacenik parents. They are the first generation of children since the Supreme Court became politically tethered and morally corrupt and a Law unto themselves.

The godless Teachers Union spit them out of our Public Education System providing proof America’s public schools are nearly unfit to educate children for it too has been corrupted by a godless ideology that champions sin and rejects the only solution to the mess it has created: Biblical Principles.

Next to dumb animals, the Millennials have the highest form of America’s ‘higher education’ learning, yet remain bereft of any true wisdom. They do not fear a Holy God. They possess so little ‘common sense’ they won’t come in out of the rain…even in a Hail storm. If any Pilgrim disagrees, spend a few minutes and view it as they demonstrate their heads are filled with Socialist/Communist propaganda, compliments of the Beatnik Generation educated fools who nearly worship at the feet of Mao, one of the world’s greatest ‘Butchers’.

It would be amusing if not for the fact they are dangerous to America, to the future of our country, and to God’s church on earth.

Ridden through the foul stench of the Feminist agenda for the past sixty years, America’s children have climbed out of the gutter of a heathen led agenda not fit for consumption or any purpose driven utility, and an avowed enemy of the Creator. Strained through the mush of ignorance that abounds in every nook and cranny in a once proud biblical nation, it seems this godless goo has evolved into a people who don’t understand anything about our country’s magnificent history; and, what they do know is being rewritten to suit one’s personal interpretation …so not to offend anyone. It is okay to offend God! In fact, it is encouraged…from the halls of congress to the elected leader of America.

The Emperor Nero blamed the Christians for the burning of Rome. He was the world’s Bully, and he used his communication network to ravage God-fearing people. History has been replete with such tyrants. Hitler and his murderous Nazi regime bullied the world as it took on the task of ‘ethnic cleansing’, and it was America’s biblical foundation that compelled it to right wrongs and save those who couldn’t save themselves.

My opinion, if the past few generations of youth had to face World War II, it would have failed miserably in defeat. Citizens of America have lost their first love: love of country and its absolute uniqueness from all others in the entire world. It has been replaced by multi-culturalism that doesn’t pledge allegiance to any place or thing. Aliens have come to its shores and are feeding off its ‘milk and honey’, but, care little about America. One day soon, other flags will fly above Old Glory, and our citizens will consider this proper because they desire to be amongst the leaders of the World, but not the ‘leader’. Jingoistic is anathema to the new citizen of this country.

College educated youth facing the reality of life have decided Socialism/Communism is the best way forward for America, and Since their history professors were mostly of the same ilk, they don’t know or have any appreciation for why America’s economic structure is the finest in the world, and that Socialism has failed in every country that has chosen to implement it. They are so ignorant, thank you Public School Educators; they don’t understand tax payers don’t owe them anything to ease their life. They are responsible for their personal outcomes. When in school, they were taught that thinking they were ‘something special’ was all that mattered…regardless of their merit. Socialist philanthropists gave money to enhance this myth instead of politically demanding our education system change so each student could compete for success. Our Congress operated our education system as if merit was a ‘bad thing’, and that sloth was the goal. I’d say they have succeeded beyond anyone’s imagination. We import foreign talent for our Tech industry.

Christians shouted their disapproval, locally, but then voted Atheist/Socialist into congress and elected them to run our country, so they would be considered ‘Politically Correct’, and loved by the world.

An un-elected new ‘bully’ on the block wearing black robes arrived upon the scene and began to destruct our nation’s biblical foundation. Our biblical leaders did little to discourage, and continued to vote into office Socialist who empowered the reconstruction of our once sacred Constitution, while creating laws Ex Nihilo, and now we have Same Sex Marriage…and only God knows what is coming down the pike.

What all Christians can be sure of is change. While America’s Christians couldn’t get enough people to fill a girl’s high school gym basketball game, sixty of America’s Fortune Five Hundred club could bully into submission State governments to pass the LGBG (lesbian/gay/both genders) law or face a boycott on their state’s economy. Perhaps, it  is only a pesky handful of biblical people who will one day be very upset that their children will be accosted by confused gender boys invading their daughters’ restrooms, or adult predators finding ‘easy pickins’ in restrooms that don’t distinguish between male and female. Welcome to the Sodom club, Georgia! Who and how many will soon join this Madman Club?

What do you suppose it would take for all Christians…who actually believe God’s word is divine, to send and edict to our States’ government elected leaders and demand this law be rescinded…or we won’t celebrate Christmas with any gifts that are manufactured? We will just boycott Christmas and celebrate the birth of Christ without any worldly accruements?

The change is going to be how Christians are treated, by our legal system, our public persona, and our loss of religious freedoms are under a attack…and will soon disappear in America You can’t have two competing entities vying for the same power positon. Godless Socialist/Communist ideology will tear to shreds all things pertaining to a biblical foundation. All who support this biblical foundation will suffer, greatly.

Regardless of the type of noted biblical sins one can easily find in the Bible, our government already forces Christian to subsidize them via our tax dollars. Soon, our tax dollars are going to be used to imprison Christians for living for Christ.

Who could have ever imagined that America, a country founded by God fearing people who sought the freedom to evangelize a new world for Christ, would one day become the New Bully that would spend its treasure to keep God out of the public arena and demand its followers support what the Bible is against?

Come Lord Jesus, come.

Doc Christian

AMERICA…THE COUNTRY PILGRIMS (CHRISTIANS) DESERVE

AMERICA…THE COUNTRY PILGRIMS (CHRISTIANS) DESERVE

     The recent Democrat speech made by the party’s front-runner’ boldly included a pitch for the passing of the LGBG law. Well, it was responsible for the Supreme Court’s edict for Same Sex Marriage; why not include the Lesbians, Homosexuals, and Gender/Transgender crowd. Though God’s Bible declares this an ‘abomination’, Christians have been going to the polls and voting into power Atheists and Bible haters of all stripes for sixty years, why change now?

Since Christians, who profess they love God, his word, and especially Jesus, have consistently cast votes that have undeniably mocked God as they championed the Feminist agenda, welfare for fornication, open usurpation of the role of man in God’s family and society based upon a pagan formula, while ignoring the wife, mother, and ‘Business Woman’ of Proverbs, and gleefully embracing the disappearance of the Lady of yesterday, and cheering wildly for the modern-day public skank that dots our entertainment landscape, and for the more uh-hum, progressives, has bled into God’s church in America.

Christians may wring their hands and think about purchasing an extra supply of ashes for their sackcloth because the evil fruit discovered by Abraham when he rescued Lot in Sodom has moved its stench to America’s door-step.

While the biblical haters were lying awake at night fomenting plans that would one day bring about spiritual destruction to a once great biblical nation, our church leaders were seeking ‘safe harbor’ from the cultural tsunami led by an army of godless women seeking power to ‘turn the world upside down’. If that sounds familiar, those comments were used when Paul and Silas preached Jesus Crucified, resurrected and glorified in Ephesus and people quit buying all those idols the Silversmiths made.

Under the guise of correcting the Bible’s commands for the assigned roles in a marriage, by God, the utilitarian idea of ‘Equality’ for women, and the absolute removal of any idea of ‘submission’ to Jesus or a husband, became the mantra for the Feminist Movement to ensnare Christians…women and men to reject God’s counsel and embrace those of Atheist women. The Apostle Paul became a ‘Woman hater’. The lion’s share of the New Testament was found demeaning to women and totally unacceptable for any decent human…especially a woman…even Christian women.

Amidst some biblical protests calling for Christians to reject this heathen theology espoused by Feminist gargoyles, the majority of church pulpits remained ominously silent. Particularly, young married couples looked to the church leaders for biblical guidance, and none came forth, which created a sense of confusion about which ‘voice’ calling for fair treatment for all of God’s children should be heeded. These confused Christians didn’t hear it from our church pulpits: God has never been concerned about ‘Fairness’…only ‘Righteousness’.

My new novel about believers in America coming out of spiritual darkness after regaining their memory of the history of the Bible, as the enemy used chip implant technology to erase it, is a apoplectic, cautionary tale for Christians in America. The difference, as I see it, is that in my fictional story, believers didn’t have a choice; but, Christians, for the past sixty years, had a choice and chose to allow the Bible and prayer to be stricken from our schools and all government backed institutions, which included the Ten Commandments. We voted to have nine unelected people to bring us Same Sex Marriage, to God’s shame and ours. God’s enemies took away our Christmas and gave us “Happy Holidays” Just one collective demanding voice from America’s Christians could have prevented it. God wasn’t running for President, so we supported his enemies as they demeaned and mocked Jesus to the point Muslims are preferred rather than people of the Bible in America.

Recently, a carpenter delivered a couple of large shadow boxes to be hung up so my wife can display her antique collections. He is a member of a Baptist church…for sixty years. I asked him about his thoughts on the Presidential debates. I’m a Democrat, but I vote for the man.” I replied. “So you’re okay with the Supreme Court’s law about Same Sex Marriage?” I said. No! “Your party is,” I said. He answered. “I only care about the local elections. I don’t pay any mind to what happens in Washington.” This beloved is the disconnect many Christians possess when it comes to separation of…no not State and Church, but, separation of Political Party and Church. It isn’t any different in my church…or, I’ll bet in your church.

To even the un-trained eye, every type of sin and evil is manifest in a public way in our nation, and the majority of its citizens are out of control cheerleaders for Satan’s outcomes.

Perhaps, it is part of God’s plan to punish America for rejecting his benevolence for over two hundred years, as he is allowing the enemy to grow bolder and stronger while Christians grow weaker and more timid. He has done it in the past, right?

When the LGBG law finally becomes law, it may be the time that God loosens his grip on America that once favored his Son, and all believers will be cast into a season of persecution in this country…led by the Christians own government, that will last until Christ comes again.

In my opinion, this outcome will produce putrid fruit sooner than any believer can imagine. Remember beloved, our ‘just desserts’ have been earned because we chose to have the kind of America we deserve.

EASTER

AT HIS TABLE

COMMUNION MEDITATIONS

BEYOND HOPE

Romans 15:13

     As a boy, I hated it when our church members often recited a ditty about the month of April. “April showers bring May flowers.” April was the most exciting month of the year! Every ‘true’ baseball lover knows that. Spring Training for the Major Leaguers had already commenced by April. Baseball, God’s greatest gift to a boy, the sounds of a bat against a ‘round’ horsehide, chasing fly-balls under a warm sun, and going home from practice with grime and dust all over you made the ‘ball-player’ in you come alive.

Those April showers challenged my patience with God because each time he sent rain it usually forced our team to cancel baseball practice. In my mind, I could picture our farmers dancing a jig, and those showers came and not only brought beautiful flowers in May, but prepared the fields for planting and sent forth hope for a great harvest.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Today, this very hour, many have come to worship with a sense of hope that a particular outcome will soon happen. It might be a reconciled relationship, a promotion for a brighter future, or perhaps, it is to celebrate an announcement for marriage or birth. It might be to find closure for a loved one’s death or your strength to live with a divorce.

Jesus invites his people around his table to remind us he is the God of hope. I’m convinced he left this act of worship for believers so each time we partake of the Lord’s Supper it will be a bold witness of our belief that we one day won’t need to possess hope, for his work on the cross has replaced that need with assurance.

Come now, repent of your sin and refresh your Spirit as you partake of the emblems that represent his sacrifice. Eat the bread and drink from the cup that represents his bruised body and his blood. When we commune with our Lord at his table, will you emulate the little boy in love with Baseball, as it made him ‘come alive’ with hope for another chance to play the game? After sharing communion with the Creator, will your fervent fire to serve Jesus make you ‘come alive’?

Dear Pilgrims,

This is one of many Communion Meditations I have written this year. I hope to have them published. Please pray for my goal.
