Scientists Find Liberal Gene

October 28th, 2010

Oh, great! Now they have another way to excuse their churlish behavior and naiveté!

Or is it?

"It is the crucial interaction of two factors — the genetic predisposition and the environmental condition of having many friends in adolescence — that is associated with being more liberal,” according to the study.

Most people would just read past these words… but there is a sinister tone to them. Conservatives have a mental disorder!Considering today’s deeply divided political climate and the escalation of class warfare, all things liberal are highly exalted, well usually only by liberals.

While the rest of us live by notions of honesty and hard work, there are some who would also want to benefit from that honesty and hard work, without sharing in the same. These, less than honest, ne’er-do-wells have the support of the so-called elite, those who think themselves better than the rest, whether by education, social status or wealth. Only because they can easily be trained to perform the menial tasks required to keep the gentry comfortable and entertained.

But now, with the backing of “science,” it is easy to just declare anything other than liberalism a mental disorder, as is already classified religion and belief in the supernatural. They can then, gather those “ill” conservatives and zealots in places where they can receive adequate, humane treatment.

Nah, can’t happen… or can it?

So much is done under the banner of progressivism – feminism, diversity, tolerance… don’t forget abortion, euthanasia, and eugenics. All devoted to the god of self.

Tweet from Mr President

October 17th, 2010

here is a tweet from the president:

Barack ObamaBarackObama Barack Obama Don’t miss tonight’s Moving America Forward rally in Columbus. Watch live at barackobama.com/live, beginning at 6pm ET.

Notice that it will be streamed from barackobama.com/live, not from whitehouse.gov. Apparently the government approved website is not elite enough for our elitist in chief.

Ever the campaigner, he has to campaign for everything he wants to do, including moving America forward.

Mr President! When are you going to stop campaigning? You hoodwinked enough people to get the job you are uniquely unqualified to do. Instead of dismantling the American system, why do you not just do the job you have?

Stop being a lapdog for George Soros. Communism has failed everywhere it was attempted. The only purely communist regime left on the planet is North Korea and that is not exactly the kind of country ANYONE wants to live in.

Get out of the way and let America get back to being the greatest country on earth again.

Potential Church

October 10th, 2010

Something really interesting happened on 10/10/10 at 10:00 PM. Flamingo Road Church changed its name to Potential Church.

I have a few questions…

Are you not really a church, but want to be one soon?

Are you a really powerful church ready to explode?

I mean really… what is it with church names these days?

Why do churches rely on growth by programs and education of one pastor? Is it not good enough to not let man DO and solely rely upon God add to His church such as should be saved, a la Acts 2:41?

Why do churches and pastors have to PROMOTE the name of the pastor, and use them as website URLs to unify a church? Does the pastor have a brand? Are you serving your own ego?

Is there a board of elders that oversee here, like a proper New Testament church, or is it just the pastor and what he wants?

The last question I have, after having searched this website high and low tonight…

WHERE IS JESUS?

Is Potential Church so ashamed of the name of Jesus that it is nowhere to be found on the website at its inauguration?

These are questions every Christian MUST ask of their church!

The Ant and The Grasshopper

September 21st, 2010
The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

This one is a little different ….
Two Different Versions …

Two Different Morals

OL
D VERSION

The ant works
hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and  dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:

Be responsible for yourself!


MODERN VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grass hopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving. 

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? 

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green…’

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, We shall overcome.

Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake. 

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight. 

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the
grasshopper
, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act
retroactive to the beginning of
the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of  green bugs and,  having  nothing left to  pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given  to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper! and his free-loading  friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is  in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.

The ant has  disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found  dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over  by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous  and peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it. 

MORAL OF THE STORY:

Be careful how you vote in 2010.

I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant not a grasshopper!

Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.

Don’t bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t understand it, anyway

Urgent Comment from Understand The Times

September 15th, 2010

A meeting held recently in Austria attended by the “elite,” has set in motion the agenda that will change the world until Jesus comes for His Church in the rapture. (I Thessalonians 4:17).

Expect three trends to happen fulfilling the 666 plan:

  1. The development of a global government. (6)
  2. The development of a global currency within a global economy. (6)
  3. The development of a global religion for peace. (6)

The “fundamental transformation” of the United States and every other country in the world has begun.

Born-again Bible believing Christians will be a remnant. Believers who follow the true Jesus and His Word will proclaim the truth in love and expose the “lie”. This will happen worldwide.

Christians can expect the following:

  1. The shocking collapse of many well respected “Christian” organizations.
  2. The development of a counterfeit bride for a counterfeit Christ (Revelation 17:1-9).
  3. Perilous times (2 Timothy chapter 3).

The counter prevention for Apostasy

  1. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Psalms 122:6).
  2. Read 2 Timothy 4:1-8.
  3. Pray each day to be led by the Holy Spirit. (John 16:13).
  4. Proclaim the gospel. (2 Corinthians 4:3-5).
  5. Be a watchman for Jesus Christ. (Ezekiel 3:17).
  6. Be a good servant. (2 Timothy chapter 2).
  7. Read Colossians chapters 1 though 4

Sincerely in the name of Jesus Christ,
Roger Oakland

The Inerrancy of Scripture

August 17th, 2010

Albert Mohler sums writes on his now 60 year stance on the inerrancy of scripture. He says…

“[W]hen you encounter a present-day view of Holy Scripture, you encounter more than a view of Scripture. What you meet is a total view of God and the world, that is, a total theology, which is both an ontology, declaring what there is, and an epistemology, stating how we know what there is. This is necessarily so, for a theology is a seamless robe, a circle within which everything links up with everything else through its common grounding in God.”

You see, it is this “grounding” in God that sticks everything. If your morality is not grounded, it becomes subject to relativity. God is unchangeable. He is the uncaused. He is eternal, holy, good, just and righteous… just to start.

The bible, to me is an amazing document. It has withstood almost 2,000 years of naysayers… yet eventually, disproves them all.

So, when you compare yourself to the standard declared in just the ten commandments, how do you stack up?

I know I don’t! BUT… I thank God for a Savior Who could AND DID, thereby covering me and anyone else who places their faith in that fact!

Check out what Albert Mohler has to say about the inerrancy of scripture.

Youth violence: Grandmother of burned boy speaks out about youth violence

August 15th, 2010

Really?

Just saying we ought to do these things is going to help?

Do you not understand what the real problem is?

You cannot speak to oughtness or even good morality if you hold to the religion of modernity, that of the belief that there is no God and natural selection is responsible for their existence.

If you instill into these kids that they are nothing but an animal, and in the animal kingdom, might makes right. How then do you expect them to behave? Animals have no morality… when a dog steals another dog’s food, does the doggy thief feel bad and then atone for the theft?

Really… the game is survival of the fittest. That is what they are taught in science from grade school through college. There is no basis for morality in that… or even oughtness, yet we expect it!

So let us go back to the basics, teaching all that they are made in the image of their Creator, and as such, every human has great value. Instead of teaching them that life is cruel, teach them that man is noble, yet can be cruel.

Teach them that all life is valuable, especially human life. Teach them that there will be consequences, temporal and eternal. Teach them that there are morals, because the Creator is just and right, and expects us to be like Him.

Do not teach them that they are just animals… and then be shocked when they act like it.
