Rambling Along


This morning I listened and read along to the entire book of Romans. My comments first and foremost on this book of the Bible are “WOW!” Paul wrote a masterpiece. We are saved first and only by grace. But our response is critical too, we believe in our heart, confess with our lips that Jesus Christ is Lord, and then we agree to follow Him – with our whole heart for the rest of our lives. I know I sometimes sound bitter or angry, and I must say I have a great dislike for our current Government, at least those in leadership in our Government, but I still say we live in the greatest Country on earth, and the freedoms we enjoy are the product of the efforts of many like-minded moral and ethical and mainly Christians over the course of our Nation’s history.

Those men and women saw fit to provide us this Government in its present form so that we – the PEOPLE – could argue and discourse with one another in order to try to keep the idea going, the idea being that we can govern ourselves, without the need of “Specialists” in high places to rule over us. That’s what the Founding Fathers believed more than anything else, they reasoned that a system of 3 branches of Government, modeled after the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, would work to provide the checks and balances needed to insure that no one branch could become so powerful that it completely diminished the other three.

What we have witnessed in recent history is an attempt by the one branch (need I say which?) to become “Supreme” in its ethics, dictates, and ultimately power. This is unacceptable to me. I have studied history my entire life and I find this so distasteful that I cannot stand idly by without saying something about it. So, if you perceive that I am angry, I am, to a certain extent, I am calling wrong – wrong, and saying that things should not be that way simply because they should not. I pray every day for my Country, I pray for the leaders, I pray they will listen to God, and that they will also listen to us – the PEOPLE. And, if you want to know with whom I am angry – it’s mostly with us – the PEOPLE – because WE LET THIS HAPPEN!

  1. I admit I don’t pray enough for this country. Sometimes I wrongly think that nothing will change those leading this country… they’re lost… they sold their soul’s to the devil, and they’ll never do what’s best for America. Then I have to remind myself that God can change even them, and that he’s orchestrating all things for his glory.

  2. I really think that we should do two things, at least. Every time we read the news and get angry at a news story, we should pray and ask for wisdom from the Lord to know how to respond properly. Then, if the Lord is telling us to respond by telling others why we’re angry, then we should also tell folks the better way to do things.

    Dr. Carson said it so well the other day at the Values Voter Summit, he said that “O-care is like slavery, because it makes us, the people, subservient to the Government.” Then he also went on to say that “It was never about healthcare, but was always about CONTROL.”

    Dr. Ben Carson then went on in that speech to quote Lenin who said something to the effect (the quote is variously worded, depending, the actual quote is probably not known in its original form) that “Socialized healthcare is the capstone in the arch that is Socialism.” My inference on that is since you now control something that people need from the time they are born, to the time they die, and it is a resource that in essence can determine whether they live or die, so you control the people – almost completely.

    We’ll be headed – very quickly – to a single payer system, with the Government dictating prices, and doling out resources, limited resources, to those folks that have “Utility.” Now you can bet that they will “Favor” those they like and seek to not help those they dislike, just like the IRS scandal of recent months. Since, you guessed it, the IRS is in control of our healthcare now!

    So, I’m praying for my Country again. Lord, help us. It seems we’ve lost our way. We have let the educational system become a tool in the hands of the enemies of freedom and democracy. We have allowed platitudes, and small rewards (bribes) take the place of freedom, diligence and hard work. We have allowed those who worship a cult of death to take the place of a belief in You Lord and the knowledge that all humans are created in Your image. We have lost our way Lord. Help us. Show us. Lead us. May I speak Your words of truth today. In Your name Jesus.
