Tired of Lies About Christians

I had someone that had like something on my facebook and then unlike when I had gone onto his site to see who he was. Someone else posted something saying that Christians have done the same thing as Islam and that they are the same, WRONG! I probably shouldn’t of wrote on his facebook but I’m tired of all the lies.

I wrote-”Just because someone says they are a Christian doesn’t make it so.” Then I explain what Christian means. On top of that I quoted Matt. 7:21-Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

I guess this upset the man and went back and unliked. The truth is the truth and I’m tired of people saying Christians are this and Christians are that when they have no idea of what they are talking about.

So lets start with the definition of what a Christian is.  Christian means-Christ like, A real disciple of Christ; one who believes in the truth of the christian faith, and studies to follow the example, and obey the precepts, of Christ; a believer in Christ who is characterized by real piety(Charity or Godly love, could also mean reverence with great love) Many think they are a Christian because of the church they attend or because their parents are Christians. This doesn’t make you a Christian. However, I can see the transformation of thinking that they are Christians because of the church they attend. So lets define Church.

Church-The disciples of Christ assembled for the worship in a particular place; The collective body of Christians, who have made a public profession of  Christ as their savior and believe in the death, burial, and Resurrection. The English word church comes from the Greek word kyriakos, “belonging to the Lord” (kyrios). /ekklēsía (“church”) is the root of the terms “ecclesiology” and “ecclesiastical.”]

Now lets talk about some of the differences. The guy had stated that some Christians did atrocities. Now I know I’m going to get some people mad here. During the time of our forefathers the Church of England prosecuted true Christians as well as others. The Church of England broke away from the Roman Catholic Church. They were still Catholic just broke ties from Rome sort of speak. Yes King James had the Bible translated in hopes to stop the feuding I guess. The thing is that the Catholic Church didn’t want people to read the Bible. Have you ever been to one? They never encourage people to read the Bible. Now don’t get me wrong now days many don’t encourage to check out what they preach.

Now the Bible says that Jesus was the Christ (the Anointed; and application given to the Savior of the world, and synonymous with the Hebrew Messiah.) That is why people say Jesus Christ. It’s not his last name! John 1 tells it all. “In the beginning is the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

Muslims believe he is a prophet but not God in the flesh. To them that means they can change things. From the Quran-He(meaning Jesus) said: “I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet. (19:30, Yusif Ali) They deny his death, burial, and resurrection. That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. (4:157,Yusif Ali) Yet Josephus(not a Christian but a Jewish historian) confirms his death.

The sins of the world is the reason for his death. That includes the sins of the Muslims. World includes all!

How can he be the Christ if he was only a messenger. Do they not know what Christ means? O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth.Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not “Trinity” : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. (4:171, Yusif Ali)

Christ the son of Mary was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how Allah doth make His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth! (5:575, Yusif Ali)

And behold! Allah will say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah’?” He will say: “Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden. (5:116, Yusif Ali) Jesus never told people to worship him or Mary. He kept the ten Commandments in which one said; Exodus 20:1-6: 1 And God spoke all these words 2 “I am the Lord your God,who bought you out of the land of slavery.3 “You shall have no other gods before me.” 4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

When he was tempted by Satan; 5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.    

So not only did they ignore their so called prophet they ignored God. They believe in dying for Allah will get them short sentences and will get into paradise sooner. The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses that deal with violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text.

Quran:2:190. And fight in the Way of Allah those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allah likes not the transgressors. [This Verse is the first one that was revealed in connection with Jihad, but it was supplemented by another (V.9:36)]. 36. Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred, (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islamic calendar). That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein, and fight against the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) collectively , as they fight against you collectively. But know that Allah is with those who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V.2:2). YUSUFALI: And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.

Quran (2:244) - “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

Quran (2:216) - Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” This verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was not under attack at the time.

Quran (3:56) - “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

This one includes Christians:Quran (3:151) - “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. 

Quran (4:74) - “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”  Is this what is used for today’s suicide bombers ?

Quran (4:76) - “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

How about this one; Quran (4:89) - “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

How about the one that criticizes peaceful Muslims?:Quran (4:95) - “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-”  ”Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle.

Quran (8:65) - “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

Quran (9:14) - “Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.” Allah’s blessings to hunt and kill non-believers.

Muslims are going by something that was written 500 years after Jesus died instead of what was written by people that walked with him and was under his teachings! By logic who would be more accurate?! Where is the common sense that God gave them go?!!

Even Osama Bin Laden said that Christians were fools for not forcing people into that faith. That’s not what Christianity is about. God wants people to come willing and that is why our forefathers put in the Constitution that we were not to establish a religion. They didn’t say freedom from religion! Our country has lived in peace with other religions including Atheism for years. The Bible was put in the schools for a standard which the Supreme Court had already ruled on long time ago that it was the best book to use to teach morality. The thing is the religion of Atheism believe they are their own god and want no restraint and don’t care if it hurts others. As gods they can decide who dies, who they can control,and so on. That’s why millions of unborn children have been massacred. They lie about Christians like so many others have. You see Christians love the sinner but dislike the sin because they know what it leads to.

National Education Association (NEA) was founded in 1892 – “…if the study of the Bible is to be excluded from all state schools; if the inculcation of the principles of Christianity is to have no place in the daily program; if the worship of God is to form no part of the general exercises of these public elementary schools; then the good of the state would be better served by restoring all schools to church control.”

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:19 KJV

Muslims say that the Christians are jealous but how can that be when they were here before Muslims. If you really look at it considering what is written in the Quran it is the other way around!

Benjamin Franklin, one of the least religious, said, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”

Benjamin Rush, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, said “…the only foundation for…a republic is to be laid in Religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.” He started the first anti-slavery organization in the country.

a French historian named de Toqueville traveled all around America to find out what was so amazing about this dynamic new country.

He stated these things: Upon my arrival in the United States, the religious aspect of the country was the first thing that struck my attention; and the longer I stayed there the more did I perceive the great political consequences resulting from this state of things, to which I was unaccustomed. In France I had almost always seen the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom pursuing courses diametrically opposed to each other; but in America I found that they were intimately united, and that they reigned in common over the same country.”

   ”The Americans combine the notions of Christianity and of liberty so intimately in their minds, that it is impossible to make them conceive the one without the other.”

   “Religion should therefore be considered as the first of their political institutions. From the start, politics and religion have agreed and have not since ceased to do so.”

The problem is dictators of the world is jelous of the freedom that the people had so richly enjoyed here that I can’t help that they are worried that they people will rebel against them. The Nazis realized that they can destroy the US if they destroy the morals. The sad thing is our government brought some here after the war and they got to teach in our schools.

Just like the Nazis wanted to destroy the US the Muslims want to destroy the Jews and Christians. So now we have the brainwashed people from our schools that the Communists have been able to infiltrate along with the radical Muslims and our Muslim president helping!

Signers of the Declaration of Independence Part 1

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”- Declaration of Independence

In my book I said: Liberty is never free-it comes at a cost. Throughout the history of the United States, our freedom has been safeguarded through immense sacrifice. But without the truth and knowledge of the past, this liberty can be threatened.

When our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence they knew the risk they were taking, not only would they be losing their fortunes but also, their very lives and their families. These were lawyers and jurists,merchants, farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated and every single one of them knew that the penalty would be death if they were captured. There were a total of 56 who were willing to sign the document.

We just had the 4th of July. The sad thing is many have sold their birthright for a bowl of porridge. Not having any understanding that the government is becoming their plantation masters.

George Read

George Read- On September 18, 1733 in North East, Cecil County, Maryland Read was born on his family farm. His father was from Dublin, Ireland. At fifteen he proceeded to study law at the office of John Moland in Philadelphia. He was admitted to the Philadelphia Bar in 1753. In 1774 he was elected to the first Continental Congress. In 1776 Read was called to join the Constitutional Convention in Delaware in 1776. He served as president of the committee that drafted the document.

In 1763 he married Gertrude Ross Till, daughter of the Rev. George Ross, the Anglican rector of Immanuel Church in New Castle and widowed sister of  George Ross, also a future signer of the Declaration of Independence. They had five children.

During the time of the Revolution Delaware was politically divided into 2 loose factions. The majority Court Party, generally Anglican and the minority Country Party which was largely Ulster-Scot and advocated independence from the British. Read was in favor of trying to reconcile differences with Great Britain. Read surprised many by voting against it but after the Declaration of Independent was adopted he signed it.

Read was in Philadelphia attending Congress, and he and his family narrowly escaped being captured while returning home. While the British occupied Philadelphia and were in control of the Delaware River Read tried to recruit additional soldiers to protect the state from raiders. However, this seem to be in vain.

Because of poor health he resigned from the legislative council and refused reelection to Congress. He again sat on the council and concurrently held the position of judge of the court of appeals in admiralty cases from 1782-1788. He allied with the Federalists. I talked about the Federalists and non-Federalists in my book. He celebrated his 65th birthday and three days later he died. His grave is in the Immanuel Episcopal Churchyard.

Read was one of only two statesmen who signed all three of the great State papers on which the country’s history is based: the original Petition to the King of the Congress of 1774, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.

Francis Lewis-He was born in Wales in 1713. Francis Lewis was partly educated in Scotland and then attended Westminster in England. He went to New York to set up a business.  In 1756 he was taken prisoner and shipped to France while serving as a British mercantile agent. He became active in politics when he returned to America.

He was a member of the Committee of Sixty(Formed in 1775, by rebels to enforce the Continental Association, a boycott of British goods enacted by the 1st Continental Congress). In 1778, he signed the United States Articles of Confederation.

Even though he was rich he spent his own money to help the fight. During the revolution his home was totally destroyed and his wife was arrested by the British. They denied her change of clothing as well as not giving her adequate food for weeks while she was in captivity. She eventually died. His son Morgan served in the Army during the Revolution and later on eventually became Governor of New York.

He died a poor man in 1803 at the age of 90.

Memorial Monday

I can’t stop enough and think about people who died. Especially those who died for our country and as far as I’m concern this administration is a slap in their face.

The front of my book is a memorial to my mother who served in the Navy during WW II. She entered at the age of 16 in 1941. She told me how she watch others at boot camp be escorted out because they were under age. There were many that had done the same thing as my mother did. This is because they believed in our country and felt the call.

It wasn’t until after the war that my mother found out that the FBI had gone to her dad and ask him if he knew she was in the Navy. He told them that if she wanted to be in the Navy let her.

My dad was very abusive. I couldn’t understand until my husband was diagnosed with PTSD. I had done a lot of research to learn about it.

I remembered my mom telling me that my dad had been sent to Perl Harbor in 1942. For the most part, the ships were re-floated within 6 months. Much of the clean up continued on for another year. They were still cleaning up minor wreckage as late as 1944. I don’t know what he saw or anything. My dad never talked about his time there. He was a yeoman.

My husband, still alive, spent most of his time on aircraft carriers. This is why I knew that marines could get to Benghazi and that they had to have been told to stand down.

He went in at the age of 17. He was on an aircraft carrier in the area of Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

My heart goes out for the families who love ones have died. I say thank you. Too, bad we have politicians that don’t appreciate them. That want to cut their pay but they want a pay raise for themselves! They don’t deserve one at all! Give it to those that do deserve it!

In a post West said that NBA – the last scale I found, which was for the 2011-2012 season, put the starting rate at $490,180. By the time they have 10+ years in the NBA, the minimum salary is $1,399,507.

The starting salary of a young enlisting military personal is $1,547 per month. During the time my husband was enlisted it was lower than that. They don’t play games and they are called on to perform and be ready 24/7. To put their lives on the line which those who seem to criticize them most refused to do like Bill Clinton! Trying to protect our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness which this administration and others seem to be trying to destroy!

My hat’s off to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice as well as those that served and those that are in harms way. God bless you.

Do You Remember Malcolm X?

Malcolm X full name was Malcolm Little. He was born in 1925 in Omaha, NE. He had married Betty Shabazz. Now I want to remind you we bought some land from some Shabazzs which I wouldn’t be surprised if they are related. They are Muslims and you could tell that it was used as a training camp.

Malcolm was a “hustler” who was converted to the Black Muslim faith while in prison unlike Keith Ellison who was converted while in college. They pray on people’s disillusions and use them for their gain. Ellison generated national attention with his decision to use an English translation of the Qur’an that once belonged to Jefferson. The thing is Ellison was probably lied to and was told that Jefferson was a Muslim. However, Jefferson got his hands on the Qur’an because he didn’t trust Muslims because of things that were going on during that time. He considered the Qur’an a law book more than a book of scripture because Muslim leaders claimed that the book was not only the word of God, but the supreme source of Islamic law.

Jefferson wrote to John Jay:

“The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise”

They will lie to you to get you to come to their faith. It is ok to lie in their faith to further their cause unlike Christians who are told lying is a sin no matter what.

Malcolm X became a radical Muslim that opposed any integration on the grounds that white people were devils. I wonder what he thought of the white Muslims. He was a prominent black nationalist leader who served as a spokesman for the Nation of Islam during the 1950s and ’60s. Because of him they grew from 400 members to 40,000 members from the time he got out of prison to 1960.

Although he had the right to be angry about what happened in his life it was wrong to revert to violence and to category every white person the same. The Bible says, “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:” Ephesians 4:26

This is where Martin Luther King Jr differed from Malcolm X. However, things changed when he made an extensive travel to the Middle East and Africa. In 1963, Malcolm X became deeply disillusioned when he learned that his hero and mentor had violated many of his own teachings, most flagrantly by carrying on many extramarital affairs; Muhammad had, in fact, fathered several children out of wedlock. Malcolm’s feelings of betrayal, combined with Muhammad’s anger over Malcolm’s insensitive comments regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, led Malcolm X to leave the Nation of Islam in 1964.

Things changed. “The true brotherhood I had seen had influenced me to recognize that anger can blind human vision,” he said. “America is the first country … that can actually have a bloodless revolution.” His career was cut short when he was assassinated after he had begun to criticize other Muslim leaders. On the evening of February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, where Malcolm X  three gunmen rushed the stage and shot him 15 times at point blank range. Malcolm X was pronounced dead on arrival at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. He was 39 years old. The three men convicted of the assassination of Malcolm X were all members of the Nation of Islam: Talmadge Hayer, Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson.

As people listen to Al Sharpton with his hate speeches and not condemning the destruction and stealing he is no more a pastor than the man in the moon. Too bad they didn’t learn what Malcolm X did. But then it’s probably more about using anything as an excuse to do what they want to do and not caring because it’s mostly black businesses that are being destroyed! It sure isn’t helping any cause especially if they are not willing to look at the evidence!

If you haven’t read my book take a look.

Here We Go Again $15 an Hour Wage

I covered this when it first started. I titled it Economics 101. People are still not getting it. The government is making companies pay out of the noise with this and that which makes prices go up. All cost goes into the cost of the product. To get cost down you DON”T CREATE MORE COST!

I’m tired of the ignorance (lack of knowledge) these people have and politicians using it to get votes! To raise the hour wage only raises the cost and therefore raise the price so you don’t gain anything! Getting the cost down is the answer. Here is the blog I did some time back: Economics 101 http://karenjourden.authorsxpress.com/2014/02/22/economics-101/

Foreword Review of Why I Am an Independent Conservative

Clarion Review
HISTORY
Why I Am an Independent Conservative
Karen Jourden
iUniverse
978-1-4697-3216-9
Three Stars (out of Five)
Why I Am an Independent Conservative is a rallying cry for like-minded Americans.
In Why I Am an Independent Conservative, the first of two volumes, Karen Jourden clearly presents her beliefs about what America is—and how its government and citizens should fulfill their roles.
Jourden begins with truth that’s hard for anyone to argue with: the media and politics are
full of bias; good information is hard to find, so citizens must take it upon themselves to
research and form their own opinions. Jourden displays the results of her own research and opinion-forming process in this book.
As with most strong opinions, the results are polarizing (the title gives fair warning to
those who would object to her conclusions). Unafraid of confrontation, Jourden doesn’t back down, and she’s not reluctant to say what’s on her mind, but she also knows the limitations of a single individual’s voice—“I’m not going to claim I know everything or represent everyone.” Along the way she shares the historical research that led her to firmly rooted beliefs. She examines key events of America’s past (beginning with Christopher Columbus), crucial issues like education, and notable acts and beliefs of America’s presidents.
The word independent in the title implies that she’s researched her views rather than
swallowing party rhetoric whole. But it doesn’t mean her views are contrary to many popular conservative views and experiences. Her family history of military service drives her call for better treatment for veterans. She believes the God of the Bible is central to the foundations of America, and that any attempts to remove God, by the ACLU and others, are dangerous.
Jourden relies on generalizations to make her point concisely. (For example: “Liberals
have been slowly searing our children from the truth and have been guiding them into liberal  falsehood. Parents have been letting them control what our kids learn and think. Now we have no control because of the laziness of those parents who decided to let schools do the raising and teaching.”) While her key audience won’t be put off by these generalizations, they don’t offer conservatives anything they don’t already believe—and they won’t convince those who don’t readily agree.
Confusing wording (such as, “I have been married to my husband for thirty two years
since May 2011.”) occasionally slows the reading but doesn’t completely obscure meaning.
This book is certainly not for those who cringe at us-versus-them discussions, but those
whose own ideas resonate with Jourden’s will find it confirms and gives historical reasoning for their stance. The depth of research is substantial for a personal piece, but the seven pages of references are far short of the comprehensiveness that would be required by a more academic book. As a result, this book is a well-researched part
of the whole story of American history, politics, and citizenship.
Why I Am an Independent Conservative is a rallying cry for like-minded Americans.
Melissa Wuske
I want to thank Wuske for the review. Yes unfortunately there were some typos I missed. I did make some corrections I found. Will go through it again and hopefully it won’t cost much since I’m on a fixed budget.
I had started the book because a liberal lady had asked in the San Jose news paper why more conservative women didn’t write in or go for liberalism. Not exact words but that was about it. Also, when I read that many people conservatives and liberals didn’t know the Declaration of Independence when it was read to them help me make that decision.  The average person doesn’t know all this information. They may know in general things. Also, there were documents and other books throughout the book that wasn’t on the seven pages. Some was from experiences and things I heard through out my life. Thanks again. and I wish you the best.

BOOK REVIEW

In her book-length debut, the first of two proposed volumes, poet Jourden blends a critique of current American values, quotations from the Founding Fathers, and conservative reappraisals of history.

With couplets like “God was our beginning/Liberalism will be our ending,” the author’s original poem, “Weep Old Glory,” sets the tone for what’s to follow: a survey of “the main points of history that…need to be straightened out.” At first, the author focuses on the United States’ origins, from the expectations of America’s forefathers (God should remain at the center of government, dictatorship will be imminent if citizens cannot bear arms) to white Americans’ contributions to civil rights (after all, Jourden says, African-Americans weren’t the only ones who risked their lives by participating in the Underground Railroad and 1960s marches). Jourden seeks to give credit where it’s due and notes that Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal should not unfairly overshadow his large-scale integration of schools. In addition, she believes that “godless” public schools have led to “high crime and immorality” and denounces the American Civil Liberties Union as an advocate of child molesters and “homosexual clubs” in high schools. To her credit, Jourden implores readers to “do research!” and not “take anyone’s word for ! That includes what I say in this book!” Her admirable wariness of distorted history, however, does little to stop her from indulging in rhetoric from the hyperbolic (“Remember that movie Soylent Green where they were killing the old people and made food for the people? Well, we are heading that way, as I see it”) to the downright inflammatory (now that [Democrats] could not keep the blacks in slavery, it seems like they are trying to put the whole United States into slavery”). The book concludes with a survey of every U.S. [George Washington to Bill Clinton that reminds conservative readers which commanders in chief exemplified their values (Thomas Jefferson never wanted God removed from government) and which didn't (Clinton opposed every amendment that would have balanced the country’s budget).

Heed the author’s advice: approach with skepticism.

I have to laugh when someone takes something out of context. You say, shouldn't you get mad? Why? They may not of read it right and if done deliberately they are only disillusioning themselves and not facing the facts. Yes I mentioned that since we took out the principles that are in the Bible crime has increase and so on because statistics shows that. However, since I wrote this book the crime rate

1962 prayer was taken out/1963 the Bible was taken out

has gone down. But you notice that it’s not down to what it was and it went up in 2012 and down slightly in 2013.

Also, he said, “and denounces the American Civil Liberties Union as an advocate of child molesters and “homosexual clubs” in high schools.” This is what I actually said, “According to Fox News, the ACLU defends child molesters, attacks the use of the word “Christmas” (because is means Christ’s high holy day; they want it out), and demands homosexual clubs in high schools, funded by your tax dollars!” Do I believe this? Well let me ask you this. If your 4yr old comes home and starts talking about his teacher telling him he can choose to be a boy or girl what would your impression be? Did you notice they used the word choose yet they try and tell people they are born this way. And what about them doing this, The ACLU: Anti-Boy Scout and Pro-Child Molester or this ACLU DEFENDS CHILD-MOLESTER GROUP? The ACLU defended this group: North American Man/Boy Love Association .  I don’t believe all homosexuals are pedophiles and not all pedophiles are homosexuals. However, I am leery of those that are trying to get into our schools and teach 4yr olds and up about homosexuality and that association proves that these guys(in the association) like little boys and want to be able to do it! That means your little boys. Yet Social Services will take your child away if they talk about sex which they get maybe from some of the homes but schools, also. Also, he didn’t tell that I traced the ACLU roots to Communism and socialism. Yes heed my warning and do the research and learn the truth. I may not know everything but some of my experiences do qualify me! Also,what I say I see us heading for doesn’t make it rhetoric. I say it because I see the pattern of the pit falls done in the past.

I do want to thank him for his time and review. Wish the best for him.

Martin Luther King Jr Who Knows How to do it

I had an uncle who died and things have been hectic. Martin Luther King Jr Day has come and gone but not the memory. There is a right way and a wrong way to do things and he knew the right way to do things. I sometimes think Al Sharpton thinks he is another Martin King Jr but there is a big difference between him and King Jr.

Al Sharpton

Yes Sharpton has seen things in his day like King Jr but their beliefs are very different.

Sharpton is supposedly a Baptist minister like King Jr. However, he showed that he is into building racial hatred by his speeches. He doesn’t get down real hard on those that riot and steal.The Bible says “Thou shalt not steal.” yet Sharpton doesn’t contemn those that did. The thing is they were stealing from black people. Again I will say this shows that it had nothing to do with what happened but just an excuse to sin. This cost jobs for black people. They hurt those they said they were fighting for. So lets look at Martin Luther King Jr and what he believed.

He believed in the peaceful way of protesting on what was going on even when violence was set against him and his family. Martin Luther King Sr. fought against racial prejudice, not just because his race suffered, but because he considered racism of any kind and segregation to be an affront to God’s will. King Jr’s parents were very loving to their children and he learned things from them about God’s love.

One thing I agree with & liberals are using them

King Jr. and Malcom X didn’t see eye to eye but then Malcom X was wooed into the Islamic faith. He became a member or the “Nation of Islam”. Yes they have been here for a while to spread hate and getting ignorant people who have a grudge without looking at what’s really going on. Malcom X had become bitter because of the KKK who burned down his home when he was young. Like a lot of people he put it on all whites. Hate is how they recruit even today. This is how our liberals recruit, also. I remember a movie some time back I think it was called “The Chalice”. In one scene a guy said it is easier to get people to follow you with hate. Hate is easier than love. Sharpton is doing the same thing here.

The reason for this is because we are born with the “me, myself, and I” attitude. We have to be taught to care about others.

Malcom X preached racial separation as a religious duty. He condemned Martin Luther King Jr.  calling him from a “traitor” to “religious Uncle Tom”. However, later Malcom X left the NOI and started to come a little closer to the ideals of King Jr.

King pretty much believed on an Integrationist philosophy and that blacks and whites  could and should be united and live in peace. Malcolm X believed in nationalism and separatism. Malcom X believed in revolution and force was the only way to get blacks their rightful place in society. King believed in a peaceful way and encouraged his followers not to result in violence.

There is prejudice in every race and prejudice breads prejudice. Until those who are prejudice stop in every race it will not stop. Those blacks who continue to group all whites together and other races are not helping the issue. Those who are Hispanic decent group all blacks and whites as the same are not helping and all whites that are grouping other races together are not helping. People should be judged individually. However, you got people that want the spot light and continue to fire up the hatred. People end up following them instead of realizing what they are doing. This gives them power. We need to unite as US citizens and stop looking at color but as individuals!

The blacks terrorized a black community. So I want you to think all of you that are going for all those riots saying yeah, yeah. Are these people really for the blacks are for themselves?

Enough, Michael Brown is no hero and not a child!!

I was listening to the news and some girl was saying how Michael Brown was a child! Michael Brown was not a child at the age of 18! He is considered an adult with adult responsibilities! If a person is to be consider a child at the age of 18 then we need to take away adult responsibility from them and put under mom and dad’s control until they are

Wait is that a gang sign I see?!

considered adults! That also means they don’t get to vote. So lets take their independence away and they are not considered adults until 21 like it use to be!!!!!! They want to consider 18 years old a child then their voting privileges should be taken away, also because only adults should have the right to vote!

If 18 years old is a child then mom and dad should of made sure he wasn’t roaming the streets late at night! Doing drugs and stealing from a store!

Also, the military doesn’t take children in yet they will take 17 year olds with parents consent!

People are continuing to ignore facts! WHY?! Because he is black and therefore should be able to do what ever they want?!! Again these are the facts!

He is considered an adult at the age of 18!!!

Some people have ignored the fact that Brown bullied a store owner and stole from him on the same day, why?
Some people ignored the fact he lunged at the police officer and damaged the officer’s eye. In turn the officer may have lost his job to support his family because you have to have 20/20 vision to be a police officer.
Some people ignore the fact that this guy was a big fellow and don’t put themselves in the officer’s place. How would they feel if someone that big lunged at them. Also, people have come out and said he used his size to bully people!

Look how big he is against a full grown man

What was he doing in the middle of the street?! At East Palo Alto, Ca they were in the middle of the street trying to sell drugs! By the way a white police officer got murdered in East Palo Alto and yet no one made it a big deal! Is it because it was a black drug dealer killing a white officer?!
Some people ignore the fact that he had marijuana in his system.He occasionally smoked marijuana and drank alcohol, according to friends. I have seen people affected differently by this drug alone which people want to be in denial about! Some people on this drug went from being passive, mild manner to being very rude, and disrespectful not only to people but even their parents! “Our findings suggest that regular cannabis use before age 18 yrs predicts impairment, but others have found effects only for younger ages (10, 15). Given that the brain undergoes dynamic changes from the onset of puberty through early adulthood (37, 38)” Madeline H. Meier  Professor David Fergusson, said, “concluded that heavy cannabis smokers were 1.5 times more likely to suffer symptoms of psychosis(Psychosis is a loss of contact with reality that usually includes: False beliefs about what is taking place or who one is:)than that of non-users.”

Why didn’t this guy have a job?! No job and running around in the night in the middle of the

gang sign

street?! This guy is no saint and I’m tired of people trying to make a martyr of him!! He’s a thief, bully, and a thug!

Why was his step-father so into making him such a good guy?! Parents know if their children are doing drugs! Was he the one that called in all those people out of town to come and riot?! Yes I said riot! Let me ask you this do you know the difference between a riot and a demonstration?! Martin Luther King Jr had demonstrations! Was it whites that got hurt in those thieving rioters?! No it was black businesses with black employees! However, it was all races that help those businesses to survive!

It was used to steal! It wasn’t about right or wrong! It was about pushing their weight around! They really didn’t care it was to look like it was about Michael Brown. The rioters took advantage of the situation to go out and steal. They destroyed places that black people owned and took away jobs from black people!

So now we pat people on the back for breaking the law and destroying businesses?! Someone helps get the parents to the UN for a false thing. I bet the step-dad feels like a real big shot now, huh! Mom just goes along with it. Are they making money off this????!!!!!

Why didn’t Sharpton tell them “Thou shalt not steal.”? He’s suppose to be a pastor right?!

IT REALLY HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MICHAEL BROWN! MICHAEL BROWN IS NOT A HERO AND NOT A CHILD! THE RIOTERS WERE STEALING FOR THEMSELVES OFF OF BLACK PEOPLE!!!!! BLACKS STEALING OFF OF BLACKS!!

Who is Jesus

There are many religions that claim that Jesus was just a prophet. However, the Bible says otherwise. So lets look at what the Bible says.

In Genesis 1:1 it says: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Then we go to John 1:1-3: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Then in verse 10,11 it says: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. Then in verse 14 it says: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the candle, flame, burnglory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Now John the Baptist bare witness,Matthew 3:1-3: In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye:for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Isaiah 39:1-3

Then further down in Matthew chapter 3 in verse 11 John says; I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Then when Jesus came to be baptized John forbid him. He told Jesus that he needed to be baptized by him but Jesus said, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. So John baptized Jesus and when Jesus came up out of the water John saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove upon Jesus and a voice from heaven, saying This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

In Exodus Moses asked for God’s name and God responded, I am that I am. In John 8 they asked Jesus if he was greater than their father Abraham. in verse 56 he said Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he see it, and was glad.

The next verse the Jews were confused and said that he wasn’t even fifty years old so how could he have known Abraham. Jesus responded saying, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” They knew what he was saying and so because of him calling himself God they took stones up to kill him.

This was not the only time he claimed himself to be God. John 10:27-My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you fro my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Again the Jews knew what he was saying.

Jesus was from the line of David as foretold in Is.9:7. Mt.1:1-The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Both parents were of the line of David because mankind looks upon the male and not the female linage. So God made sure. Since Mary didn’t know no man when she got pregnant and was a virgin she had to come from the line of David because it is really her linage that really counted. Is. 7:14/ fulfillment Mt. 1:18

In Mi. 5:2 it tells you where he was to be born. In Mt. 2:1 it tells you where Jesus was born in Bethlehem fulfilling that prophecy. The old Testament even foretold of the massacre of the infants in Je. 31:15. In Mt. 2:15 it tells of Herod having kids from 2yrs and under murdered. Why? Because of fear of being kicked off the throne. The Bible even talked about the flight to Egypt in Ho. 11:1.

Many believed him to be a prophet because of all the miracles he did. One chapter I like very much is Isaiah 53. It gives a blow by blow account on how he was rejected and his death. It even talked about the ones that were crucified next to him. Psalm 22 talks about his hands and feet being pierced and him being mocked and insulted. 69 prophesied about the gail and vinegar that would be given him.

In Mt. 27:43 they mocked him saying: He trusted in God, let him deliver him now, if he will have him for he said, I am the Son of God. This was foretold in Psalm 22, also-He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

Psalm also, talked about his resurrection and ascension. It was all there in the Old Testament. Jesus fulfilled all of the prophecies. So who is Jesus? He is the Messiah, God in the flesh.

Philippians 2:5-11: Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who. being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

However, in the Old Testament God said you shall have no other gods before me and that there is only one God. So if people are going to bow before Jesus that means he is God who came down here and put himself as a servant. There are many places where it talks about him being the sacrifice lamb for the sins of the world.  Jesus (God) came here on earth not only to fulfill prophecies but because of his love for mankind which he created.

The Muslims who say that saying “Merry Christmas” is equal to murder don’t even know, who themselves claim Jesus is at least a prophet, what the word Christmas means but then maybe they do and don’t care what their prophet teaches. It isn’t hate. Christmas means Christ’s Mass or Christ’s High Holiday. Christ means the Messiah or the anointed one.

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and those that know Jesus the Christ that you get to know him and the peace he brings.

Peace, I leave with you, my peace i give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
