All comments regarding the matter of David Tunnell and Roye Cole depriving my children (God's children) of their father and putting them in danger can be made here. Anyone desiring to repent and confess the Lord Jesus Christ or to confess their sin in this matter can also do so here.
Just over a year and my youngest male child is beginning to walk. But what is so amazing is that he has never gone to Walking School so a State Certified Walking Teacher could teach him how to walk! Neither has Walking School been implemented in the home as a State approved Home Walking School! Moreover, not even a Private Tudor has come over to help in this life essential skill. Despite all this "negligence" on my part, thank God my son has finally learned how to walk! All by himself, with a little guidance and encouragement from others. Absolutely amazing!! Now those evil doers with Child Predator Services can get off my back for not giving my son a proper Walking Education. Praise the Lord!
"If we can do [fill in the blank with some sin] and still be saved then why not do it? If we can believe [fill in the blank with some false teaching] and still be saved then why not believe it? If we can avoid persecution or mockery by disobeying God and still be saved then why be persecuted and mocked? If we can conform to the world and be like the majority and still be saved then why not? Why all the fuss and why go through all this trouble for no reason? God is still blessing us so that is his stamp of approval that everything is just fine?" And on it goes.
This reasoning is popular and spewed forth in various ways, but let me say that I agree. I totally agree. Why suffer if we don't have to? Why suffer if we won't lose our salvation because, you know, Jesus loves us? Peace, joy, and comfort on earth then eternal bliss. How nice!
HOWEVER, the question is, the most serious, chilling question that should make us tremble is this: What if this reasoning is wrong? What if the scriptures say otherwise? What if those who live according to this belief are not saved and are not being "blessed" as they think, but are merely suffering from a strong delusion? Who was Jesus speaking to when he said "ye are of your father the devil"? It was the professing believer!
It is written: "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
"To those who feel that this is just all negative, please recognize that it is impossible to assert a positive without being negative toward the opposite position."
I came across this quote the other day. Very similar to those who judge for being judgmental. And the divisive ones who accuse certain believers of being divisive for holding particular beliefs who then hold their own particular beliefs and separate themselves from those who believe likewise.
So-called father's day today. I wonder how men feel who are not fathers but long to be? Same with so-called mother's day. Doesn't seem too nice and loving. Merely more heathen celebrations that professed believers (who claim to be not conformed to the world) have learned and participate in who then expect others to do likewise.
More on yesterday's thought, another hot subject that busybodies go crazy over is claiming children for tax deductions. Here we see again how children are viewed as merchandise. Rather than seeing children as an heritage of the Lord to be reared for a life of holiness and propagation of the gospel, they are used to satisfy the lusts of the flesh. Even the prevention or the abortion of children is rooted in the lusts of the flesh - financial burdens and added responsibility. The commercial view of children who are allowed to live continues throughout their lives, for they are expected to contribute and serve the world (society) and to rebuild that Babel tower, while filling the pockets of the moneychangers. We hear it all the time, "Hey little Johnny, what are you gonna be when you grow up?" But I say, "Hey little Johnny, what are you gonna do for the Lord when you grow up?" The big people ask the same questions to one another, "So Bob, what do you do for a living?" But I say, or would like to say, "So Bob, what are you doing for the Lord? How are you advancing his spir
Have you ever noticed how people go nuts about conforming to the State? Like really, really looney nuts! Take one of the pet doctrines of registering children with the beast for example. People become enraged if children are not registered. They moan and cry in their willful ignorance, "But how will your children survive without a State birth certificate? How will they be able to buy and sell?" Well, first of all, people can indeed survive and buy and sell without being made merchandise by the State god. Secondly, consider unemployment, welfare, the homeless, and the many, many folks in debt (the typical "U.S. Citizen"). All these good little Statists have birth certificates and social security numbers. Where are all the ones without birth certificates that are homeless and starving, because there sure are plenty of unregistered men and women out there? Hmm? Thirdly, not only do the ignorant ones induce panic and fear, they are also "practicing law" by giving legal advice without being licensed to do so! I suggest the fearmongers take serious heed on this point alone. And then, I suggest to worry about their own children and keep their nose where it belongs.

A very excellent read about State religious assemblies, aka public schools. What a blessing to find others who not only believe the simple truth of the battle of merely two religions and that neutrality is a myth, but who also take the time to write about it. Of course, another looney, absurd idea is that since this article is on the "unregulated" Internet, is just isn't true. The power of propaganda and those who are willingly seduced by it!
Added some more info about the religious State birth certificate to help those who think they know everything.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
