HOW DO WE GIVE OUR BEST TO GOD?

I saw this question on another Blog, and as I started to answer it I realized that the answer is different at different stages of each Christian’s journey in life. I can only offer my experience, because I can recommend it with sincerity . . .

My life isn’t perfect, as I know that no one’s is. At 60, I have been living with several illnesses that are not going away in this life. I did my best to ignore them for almost twenty years, and worked with full knowledge for about ten years. I have degenerative spine disease (5 major surgeries), and all of the arthritis’s (Rheumatoid is primary and caused dual knee replacement a few Thanksgivings ago, Osteo, and Fibro without the Depression – lucky me to be so blessed). For many years, I awoke at 3 a.m., and then would take my meds and soak in the tub to fight the morning stiffness in all my joints. It was there in that very much alone time that I prayed every day, and often write or read. Spending time alone with the Lord at the beginning of each day balanced me, and made life so much sweeter.

As a child I had felt the presence of the Holy Spirit long before I truly understood. The years came and went and each one with such blessings, I would cry when thinking on them. Of course there was the usual mixture of vinegar and honey so I would know the difference, but everything always worked out for the best – I never lost my joy in life. I was raised with the saying, “good things come to those that wait.” I began the marriage of my dreams at age 45.

As the fall years are flying by, I find that I think of the Lord so many times each day that my morning prayers with the Lord became my life’s 24/7 prayer with the Lord. I still say little formal prayers for loved ones and ones I don’t even know very well, when the situation is in need of special prayer. But my walk with the Lord is never ceasing, and I guess I owe this comfortable state with the Lord to unwavering faith, and finally understanding the scriptures.

You may wonder how this happens. I have sat here and pondered that question. I think it is because I have never become desensitized. I am a mature person that laughs every day – a lot. I am very well read, but do not read sex or violence that exists just for the sake of sex and violence. Therefore, I also don’t watch television or movies with those themes, and I don’t surround myself with people who are living senseless lives. Good and evil do exist, and both are bigger than each of us. We draw to ourselves that which we become, and what we become is a choice. We can either strive to live our imperfect lives as a journey with the Lord, or we strive to do it on our own without the Lord. Doing our best for God, is living our lives with Him every hour of every day – not as a burden, or a badge of honor, but as a constant awareness within us. Because of my choice I am never alone, are you?

White House Soliciting Tweets & FB for Anti-gun Campaign

FROM MY FB: The first is my response to the email I received from the White House – wrap your head in duck tape before you read the White House Letter after my response . . .
MY EMAIL BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE:
This is so wrong. Our fathers, grandfathers, and forefathers are turning over in their graves so they cannot see the end of the America they loved. I opened the attachment twice to copy it and the letter to everyone I know to send emails supporting our First and Second Amendment rights. I pray that just because I opened it you will not put me on a list of supporters.
Thank you for your time,
Juanita Holloway-Walters
=====================================================
THIS IS THE LETTER I RECEIVED VIA EMAIL YESTERDAY ON WHITE HOUSE LETTERHEAD (Yes, I am on their mailing list, how else am I to know what they are up to?):
Hello, all —
For the first time since the 1990s, Congress might be on track to pass legislation aimed at reducing gun violence in the United States. And it’s because folks in Washington are starting to understand that the rest of the country isn’t going to sit by and let them ignore this issue. Your voices are the reason we have a chance to win this debate. The American people expect and demand a yes or no vote.
But this is a critical moment. It’s been almost four months since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, thousands more Americans have died at the hands of gun violence, and time is on the side of those who would prefer that we do nothing.
We want to make sure that your voices are impossible to ignore. So we’re asking people from all over the country to speak out online in concert — all at the same time. Will you join us?
Pledge to speak out about the need to reduce gun violence.
It’s easy to participate. Over the next few days, anyone can sign up to tweet or share a message to Facebook. Through that time, we’ll gather up as many people as we can. Then we’ll make sure that all these individual messages get posted together in the same moment for maximum effect.
That wave of social media will get seen by millions and millions of people.
We’re talking about common-sense reforms. Like the idea that any of us who want to buy a gun should have to go through a background check first — which 90 percent of Americans support.
So let’s make sure that there’s absolutely no confusion about the public consensus.
Pledge to speak out with us, and then forward this email to your family and friends:
[I DELETED THE LINK, FOR I WILL NOT ADVERTISE IT!!!]

Thanks!
David Simas
Deputy Senior Advisor
The White House
=========================================================================
[When you open their link . . . this is the message they want anti-gun people to TWEET and put on FACEBOOK. There are two buttons for you to click on for that purpose & a copy also goes to the White House for their propaganda. For they will not be putting the PRO-GUN messages the rest of us TWEET AND PUT ON FB, which means they are not listening to the American Majority.]
THIS IS THE MESSAGE THEY WANT ANTI-GUN PEOPLE TO DO:
[I DELETED THE HASHTAG SO I WILL NOT BE ADVERTISING THE LINK]

“I support common-sense steps to reduce gun violence. Share this if you agree:”
My voice and support will be heard via:

THE LAST PIECE OF THE PUZZLE

First Published 1/16/13 at Webcommentary.com by Juanita

Remember . . . when George W. Bush and Congress turned on their constituency, and we were mystified? At the time, I jokingly said to my husband, “Are we a hostage nation, and only those in Washington know it?” As the years have passed, I think about the good people we send to Washington, and how they lose sight of how everything outside of Washington works best. Today, after years of destructive puzzle pieces, some correct, some fantastical, the last piece of the real puzzle sparked alive in my mind. When you come upon an axiom, a basic truth, your mind is suddenly able to recall the other pieces that fit the puzzle and complete it.

First, we need to remember some huge historical puzzle pieces. Johnson’s escalation of the Vietnam War, his war on poverty, and Nixon’s war on drugs were huge debt creators for the United States. To finish Roosevelt’s gold scam in the 1930’s, and hide a bit of national debt, Nixon took the United States off of the gold standard in 1971. Congress passed a law in 1978 to make it official. Much of the world also abandoned the gold standard in valuing their currencies. However, America going off of the gold standard was a very different proposition than any other nation doing the same.

When America went off of the gold standard in 1971, it collapsed the Bretton Woods agreement that had many nations currencies pegged to the US dollar. Beginning with secret meetings with the likes of Kissinger, Bennett (U.S. Asst. Treas. Scty.), a London-based Eurobond firm of White Weld & Co, AND the Saudi Arabia Monetary Agency, the U. S. dollar became the Petro-Dollar. Being the Petro-Dollar meant that all OPEC members agreed to sell their oil only in U.S. dollars, to the devised benefit of American and British banks.

Almost instantly, America had a new agreement to keep the U.S. dollar in banks around the world. Why? Why would anyone give such a huge and powerful boon to the U.S.? What did we give in return? Why would several other important nations around the world go along with this? When this agreement was made, the U.S. was at the end of its divisively failed Vietnam War (police action – whatever). America’s debt was off the charts. Sadly, millions of Americans were getting settled into “The Great Society” welfare programs. What did America give in exchange for saving our economic butt at the end of the Gold Standard? America agreed in these secret meetings regarding the Petro-Dollar, to de-industrialize America, and by doing so, to send American jobs all over the world as industries re-located in part, or entirely.

In the guise of reforms ALWAYS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD – environmental reform, climate reform, social reform, faith reform, racial reform, and political reform – more reforms than we can probably think of at one sitting – and in the guise of half-truths / half-lies – moving forward in history to the complete lies America is buying today, America has been in the process of an agreed upon fundamental transformation for decades. And, what a thorough job has been accomplished. Along the way, a relatively small group of people made millions, even billions of dollars as they engineered their part of the schemes.

Thus, we also have the reason for the burning question of why our government feels so comfortable in her fiat currency willful decisions of Quantitative Easing (QE) 1, 2, 3, and 4. As long as the world is trading in American dollars, we can print as many as we want to . . . scratch that, as long as the world powers that be think it is progressing their program along, they will print as many dollars as they think necessary – the ends justifying the means. We also have the reason why American proprietary secrets / patents have been given to the enemy as often as it fit the plans of a powerful few.

We have had a One World Government for so long, it is difficult for me to give you an exact year it began. The political and economic events in the 1930’s, and 1970’s certainly concreted it all in place. All of the ‘guises’ were orchestrated to keep you, the American, in line and doing your part to help the One World Government do all of its dirty deeds. For the sake of your health, the sake of your kids, the sake of the planet, the sake of your threatened government, the sake of social justice (instead of equal justice and opportunity), for the sake of your freedom of speech . . . you have been a co-conspirator in the murder of American morality in general, and specifically the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States of America.

Our hard earned money was most evilly stolen in the contrived economic bubbles, and as Americans we have not called evil by its name. Our labor unions quietly became international and assisted in pricing American labor out of jobs, while assisting those jobs to leave for foreign shores. Laws and regulations have been contrived to end our superiority in morality, industry, and the righteousness of our faith which had made America possible to begin with. To evidence how far down the rabbit hole we have gone away from a Christian republic, our government is currently in bed with our most heinous enemy, the Taliban / the Muslim Brotherhood / Hamas / PLO. Not only are American dollars and arms sent to the enemy in places like Egypt and Libya, but our government has been infiltrated by the enemy at all levels.

As long as it suited them, the One World Order, could allow half of America the illusion of her liberty, and keeping America in her sixty hour work weeks to pay for the schemes of a few. The other half of Americans became dependent on poverty, and kept voting them free stuff at the ever-increasing expense of the working half. This second half of the American population is large enough to insure the illusion of the voting power. Laws (including tax) and regulations have been passed, by people America has presumably elected for almost a century, to end your American institutions: Christianity, Marriage, Family, Education, Law, Industry and Business. Everything Constitutional is coming dangerously close to an end.

Our American Republic required a strong moral code to keep its liberty alive. The choice the One World Order believes Americans have has come down to two choices. The first is to go along with anything they do while they finish off the illusion of a sovereign America. The second is to rise to the bait and begin the violence. The World’s powerful illusionists could care less which you choose. If you choose the second choice, UN forces, from almost every nation on earth, coupled with certain elite American forces will be set into action to suppress you. The One World Order, in control of our government, out-ships, out-weapons, and out-mans you. It breaks my heart to relay this to you, but it is the truth.

America now comes to the table crippled, and deeply divided by contrivance of faith, race, economic, and social division. The world no longer needs to keep the Petro-Dollar agreement with America. The economic disaster would, in theory, finish us off. The American ideals that were the biggest stumbling block to the One World Order are now but a remnant of America’s population. The will of the Constitutionalist and the Independent is a small fraction of the whole.

What does the One World Order need from us before they pull down the dividing illusion between us and them? They need the complete death of the Constitution that half of America holds out on instinct as the guts of who we are; and they need our guns. They have orchestrated what they need to take our guns soon. Satan is capable of anything you could imagine, and more. If the true American remnant fires the first shot to regain America, our rogue government has already orchestrated the events that will have the entire world against you. Think on that – the entire world, our own rogue government, and their adoring duped citizens against you.

What is the last puzzle piece to make sense of what is happening before our eyes? Why don’t they fire the first shot? Could they not just end it all now? Perhaps, but they are not wanting to fight you in your freedom / liberty fighting mode. Satan truly fears you renewing your bond with the only entity that can defeat them – God. American revival could mend the deep divisions quickly, in bringing about the renewal of America’s Christian faith as the first priority in our lives. That would bring back the Judeo-Christian morality that makes real capitalism very successful. That would bring back your family values, and the morality to demand the return from ever-changing case law back to Constitutional Law. The last barrier between who America was in her best days and the final push into the New World Order are our First and Second Amendment rights. These two rights are the barrier to bringing down the entire Constitution. America’s enemy has been cloaked at the helm of our government for many, many decades working for the day when we would forget that our rights come from God.

The enemy within keeps up the guises of American government going through the motions, while taking a little more anti-American ground each year. The only power left on earth that can defeat our enemy is God. Should the Lord come to our rescue? Do we deserve it? Are we able to place higher value on the spiritual than temporal again? Are we able to bend our knees and ask for divine providence, just as Washington and our first Congress did? I don’t know if enough Bible literate Christians exist to even lead the rest of America out of the contrived secular pseudo Christianity that has plagued America. Do you? I do know this, without nationwide revival Satan will win the battle for control of America’s people. The fate of the United States of America is in every American’s individual hands, and time is running out. Will Americans realize they are being used as the last piece to the destruction puzzle in time?

Brinkmanship with the Enemy

http://www.stratfor.com/video/escalating-tensions-korean-peninsula-agenda?utm_source=freelist-f&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20130409&utm_term=NKoreaUpdate&utm_content=video1&elq=ed26d6aedeb244dc95859d553e08a4bd

It seems to me that Nuclear Brinkmanship is a dangerous game, and ignoring direct threats is foolish. As the game escalates, perhaps the enemy could not back down without losing face. The North Korean leader is young and may not have the wisdom needed for his leadership job. While the right hand is playing this nuclear Brinkmanship game, Americans have developed a bad habit of not watching the left hand. It would be interesting to know just what President Obama, General Dempsey (and the other Joint Chiefs), and Heaven Forbid Mr. Kerry think of these threats. As most Americans have, I have thought on 9/11/01 much – I believe America probably ignored threats, because they thought they were preposterous, and that turned out to be disastrous.

WMD – Over the decades there are so many weapons activities that have never been explained, it would be impossible with absolute certainty to say just exactly what any nation has and doesn’t have. A few examples – missing Russian suitcase nukes – OR – the contents of the long string of semi-trucks leaving Iraq during the days we were threatening to invade – OR – the two ships that left Iraq while we were telling the whole world we were going to invade Iraq (something about these two ships that left Iraq and were silent running way out in the ocean – and we never heard what became of them). Yes, I know that was redundant in part . . . did I ever tell you all the things we saw Iraq doing on the television, and heard about from guests on talk radio, while we were announcing what we were going to do for days on end??!! We also hear about the technology that has been leaked to our enemies – what about the leaks that have not yet been discovered? The bottom line with WMD is that it is impossible to know with any certainty what an enemy does or doesn’t have. Our small enemies are friends with our big enemies – and our big enemies have all manner of WMD
.
My point is that we should never ignore a direct threat, and while the threat is a nuclear threat, an enemy could be preparing to do something different (like Chemical Warfare) instead. There is no honor among our enemies. To the lay person, it would seem that American troops are not only the only troops following the Geneva Convention rules – but also the primary ones held to those rules. Our enemy chops off American’s heads and the world does not cry – not even a whimper. If we so much as put underwear on a prisoner’s head, and perhaps water board a handful of the enemy with information that could prevent the deaths of thousands, and America is crucified in the court of world opinion.

The fact that we have not closed our porous borders would make our leaders (all leaders since 9/11) complicit should an attack come inside America because of porous borders. Millions of American citizens have been screaming to close our borders for twelve years, and have been ignored. Because of our much publicized, crooked-to the-bone, government and because of our raunchy entertainment pushed and paid for by the enemies within, much of the world has come to hate us. The American’s life was once the dream that the world’s oppressed prayed for. The real America is still what the oppressed around the world should hope for, but that side of America is not seen around the world. Unfortunately, those enemies without and within, seek to destroy the America that I love. Once again, I think we have every reason to believe direct threats, and our government ignoring them is just more of the failure of “leading from behind” – because they want the destruction to come to us. “Leading from behind” is an oxymoron – any resemblance to actual people who believe this crap is not intended.

Americans are praying daily to God for peaceful resolutions with our enemies of all ilk. Sadly, there are those in our own government who wish to call praying Americans some kind of possible terrorist – even though our primary activity is praying – the most peaceful pro-active activity known to mankind.

What I found this morning . . .

What I found this morning . . .

I saw the wishbone my husband had cleaned and left to dry in the kitchen. It came from a chicken I roasted a couple of days ago. I remembered something . . . and started looking for the first wishbone we pulled . . . what are the odds? It is kind of amazing . . . so did we both get our wish? or neither? That was almost 18 years ago . . . I am pretty sure we got our wishes.

Thought for the day . . . Why this Double Standard?

The President is determined to get gun control passed. Listening to Glenn Beck, I looked up some statistics . . .Someone on the left explain this to me . . . I am asked TO NOT JUDGE all Muslims, because only 7% of American Muslims are openly radical, and terrorist activity against America is primarily from radical Muslims. BUT . . . I am asked TO JUDGE NEGATIVELY all American Gun owners, who are given their rights by our Constitution’s 2nd Amendment, and given their individual mandate to their LIFE, LIBERTY, and Pursuit Of Happiness, because less than 2% of Americans have committed criminal acts with a gun. WHY IS THERE A DOUBLE STANDARD IN AMERICA AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS?

My Thought for the day . . .

Jesus was no wimp. We were just reminded of that on Easter. However, you could argue that Jesus would approve of our American ideal of equal justice under the law . . . except if we were all with Jesus, we would have no need of the law. It isn’t the ideal of social justice via socialism or communism that should scare you if Jesus would be your King on earth today. I assure you that Hitler, Mao, Stalin, etc. were not Christians, nor were they remotely good men. I am amazed when looking at current polls in America how many ignorant people really do seem to want socialism and even Communism . . . surely they know that the Racists or Dictators who would be our leaders would be exact opposite of Jesus. Utopia is only possible in Heaven. The world I see via my internet and television is nothing like heaven.

Man or God? Companion Study

This is the Companion piece to the actual Commentary – Please read 2nd

The first thing one must do in Bible study, is to determine who is talking / writing, who is being talked/written to, and why? The small book of Titus is in the Pauline Epistles and today it is directed to the Christian / Gentiles / Non-Jewish. Paul is Titus’ mentor. Paul is writing to Titus whom Paul left in Crete to find church leaders, and to instruct them.

So our verses are not taken out of context, it is helpful to read the first five verses in Titus, as follows:  : Titus 1:1-5 “Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; To Titus, [mine] own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, [and] peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:” (KJV)

The Verses for Comparison were at the end of an excellent commentary I read this morning, but used the New English Bible for a closing statement. Being confused, I decided to do a comparison:

Titus 2:11 – 14 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, (KJV)

Titus 2:11 – 14 “For the grace of God has dawned upon the world with healing for all mankind; (NEB)

The words – For the grace of God that bringeth salvation

changed to – For the grace of God  . . . with healing for all mankind;

The theological definition of “salvation” is deliverance from the power and penalty of sin; redemption.

In looking up definition for “healing” there was no theological definition. The synonyms and antonyms make me certain that healing and salvation are not synonymous. [I.e. Synonyms 1. See cure. 2. compose, soothe. 3. purge, disinfect. Antonyms 1, 2. irritate. 3. soil, infect.]

AND

The words – hath appeared to all men

changed to – has dawned upon the world

Appeared to all men means ‘to come into the sight of all men.”

The word dawned . . . Synonyms 1. daybreak, sunrise. 5. appear, occur, break. Antonyms 1. sunset.

Dawned is a very weak replacemen word for appeared, which is a very clear word in its universal meaning. Why exchange a weak word, for one very strong in meaning.

++++++++++

Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, (KJV)

and by it we are disciplined to renounce godless ways and worldly desires, and live a life of temperance, honesty, and godliness (NEB)

The word –  teaching

changed to – disciplined,

Teaching is a positive process of a teacher passing on knowledge to others.

Disciplined brings other types of definitions to mine – and often negative definitions are visualized when hearing the word disciplined: systematic training in obedience to regulations and authority; or the state of improved behavior, resulting from such training or conditions; or punishment or chastisement.

AND

The words – ungodliness and worldly lusts

changed to – godless ways and wordly desires,

The only difference here is subtle, in that lust and desire can be synonyms; however, if the lust or desire is not defined at first blush most people see a preconceived meaning of the two words. Lust, without a qualifier, is almost always thought of as a bad thing. Desire, without a qualifier, is usually associated with one’s heart’s desire which could be as innocent as wanting to find a good spouse, and to have a family.

AND

The words – live soberly, righteously, and godly

changed to – live a life of temperance, honesty, and godliness

Soberly vs. temperance: Soberly means quiet and serious demeanor, or not intoxicated. Temperance means abstinence from alcohol, or self-restraint in action or statement. Soberly usually speaks more to the permanent nature of a person. Temperance usually speaks more to the behavior of a person in specific situations. Of course because of the 18th Amendment that prohibited the manufacture, transportation and sale of intoxicating liquors, and the 21st Amendment which reversed the 18th, we will tend to relate temperance with the restraint of drinking alcoholic beverages.

Righteously vs. honesty: Righteous living means moral and virtuous. Honest means truthful and sincere. These are both good words, but in meaning, honest cannot replace the word righteous and envelope the entire meaning of righteous.

Godly vs. Godliness:  Godly means to conform to the laws of God. Godliness is having a religious character. The difference is minimal.

in this present world; (KJV)

in the present age, (NEB)

The words – present world

changed to – present age

The world is the earth, humankind; the human race; humanity.

Present age represents an era.

++++++++++

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; (KJV)

looking forward to the happy fulfillment in our hope when the splendor of our great God and Savior Christ Jesus will appear. (NEB)

The words – Looking for that blessed hope

changed to – looking forward to the happy fulfillment in our hope,

“Looking for that blessed hope”, makes the Christian different from non-believers. On a daily basis we do think on good things, and at the top of that list is knowing we will meet the Lord one day. The Prospect of Death has “no sting” for us because of our blessed hope of either being raptured by the Lord in our lifetime, or the eternal life that will follow earthly death.

“Looking forward to the happy fulfillment in our hope”, is too casual a statement for what it is we are actually looking forward to.

AND

The words – and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ

changed to – when the splendor of our great God and Savior Christ Jesus will appear.

There isn’t much difference in these two statements splendor certainly describes the Lord. I prefer glorious because that is what our existence is all about – we exist in Christ for His glory.

++++++++++

Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (KJV)

He it is who sacrificed Himself for us, to set us free from all wickedness, and to make us a pure people marked out for His own, eager to do good.” (NEB)

The words – Who gave himself for us,

changed to – He it is who sacrificed Himself for us,

When the meanings are basically the same, one must ponder why change the words at all.

AND

The words – that he might redeem us from all iniquity,

changed to = to set us free from all wickedness,

The meaning of why Jesus / our Lord came to us here in His Creation was to solve the problem of redemption. The words redeem and redemption in our Lord’s human purpose is the very core of defining why he came. Changing the wording to anything other than redemption is cheating the reader of the reminder of the story of redemption.

AND

The words – and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

changed to – and to make us a pure people marked out for His own, eager to do good.

It is his work of redemption which is the grace the Lord gives us thereby we are “uncommon” (peculiar) people compared to people who do not choose to accept the Lord’s gift of salvation. Because we are filled with the Lord’s Holy Spirit, our souls are changed, and it shows in our natural zeal to have a propensity for good works.

Redemption does not make us pure – but we are counted as pure by the work of the cross and by our free will, we choose to believe in the Gospel regarding Jesus Christ. Being counted for pure is a gift we do not earn with our good works; it is given only by our belief. Because the “mark of the beast” is such a common phrase, I would never use it to describe the grace the Lord gives us when we believe. We are His by the choice of our free will. Eager to do good could describe our attitude toward playing a sport, learning in a school class . . .  “eager to do good” just isn’t a wonderful enough phrase to describe what happens to us when we accept Christ into our lives.

++++++++++

I was wondering if the tenth verse should have been included at the beginning of the quote:

Titus 2:10 “Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

And also wondering if the verse was left out on purpose.

MAN OR GOD? Who Will Determine the American’s Mindset In The Future?

In the American Patriot’s Bible there are listed the elements of the American people that made our republic thrive and grow. America experienced God’s providence and bounty when American’s were still a thriving Christian majority – – – Oh, wait! There is still a Christian majority in the United States of America. If you include the small percentage of the “other” who simply do not think it is any of your business what faith they practice, Christians in America are 85% of the population. How can this be true in a nation that is glorifying fornication to the extent of pornography on our televisions, and teaching children in our schools ‘How To’s’ that I would be horrified to have to type out for edification? I am sure every adult who is reading my words can fill in what I have not typed.

When my father attended public school, in New Jersey, he was exposed to subjects not taught in today’s American public schools. Economics is an excellent example of a class we might not see in our schools today. Our children would benefit from the knowledge regarding such an important subject to every household and every nook and cranny of our badly Super-Sized Government. The King James Version of the Holy Bible is the most important example of what is missing in America’s public education. It is ludicrous to say that the First Amendment requires a “separation of church and state.” It isn’t there. I only need to make one statement to convince you that our founding fathers did not leave their faith at the front door of government each morning. The founders held Christian church services in the building that Congress was housed in. We need to ask ourselves why we have abandoned the very Judeo-Christian values and morals which built a great nation, and provided the greatest security and growth for American families and communities as the world has never seen before.

Giving credit to Dr. Richard Glee, and The Patriot’s Bible those basic American elements were:

The Dignity of Human Life                                                         – Exodus 20:13, Matthew 22:39
The Traditional Monogamous Family                                        – Genesis 2:23, 24, Matthew 19:5
A National Work Ethic                                                               – 2 Thessalonians 3:10
The Right to a God-Centered Education                                   – Ephesians 6:4
The Abrahamic Covenant                                                          – Genesis 12:1-3, Galatians 3:7
Common Decency                                                                    – Matthew 22:39
Our Personal Accountability to God                                         – Hebrews 9:27

Because of these common beliefs and practices, the American population was very much ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave,” not to mention the most productive nation in history. America’s dilemma is that she (the population) wants the ability to sin, and call it good. How did Americans come to believe that God was extremely tolerant in the sin department? The Bible says what it means in plain English. There are reasons the enemy within America has pushed so hard to defy logic in our courts. Their goal was to transform America from the great Christian republic of her founding. We have heard all of the horror stories regarding past and present administrations, congress, judges, and their policies which have hacked away at the foundation of our republic for decades. We The People sent every crooked politician to Washington; with a few exceptions of actual wide spread voter fraud. What is happening in Washington is just a mirror image of what is going on in America from coast to coast.

There is no Christian doctrine save God’s doctrine.

When Jesus talked of the scriptures, at that time in history, he was quoting the Greek Septuagint translated by 70 scholars from the Hebrew. As far as the world is concerned, the single most important event in pre-modern history was the translation of the Holy Bible to English. Once again a whole bevy of scholars had to agree on the translation from Greek & Hebrew to English. It was nothing short of a miraculous achievement. I am certain that the Holy Spirit moved through a lot of translators in both major translations. Modern day scholars give the critique of The King James translation to be excellent, with a few exceptions. One example of a translation that is considered to be an error from the Hebrew is In Exodus 20:13 “thou shalt not kill” is better translated “thou shalt not murder.” A few Bibles such as The King James Version in the American Patriot’s Bible reflects these few translations that have been discussed at length among the scholars.

How did America’s Christianity, and our government become so completely discombobulated? We would be wise to adopt the following John Adams quote as our guide for national health, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Our virtues and morality come from our Christianity. If our Christianity is broken, then the America that our troops from Valley Forge to Afghanistan have died for is broken to the core. I searched my soul for the reasons our Christianity is so broken. For there to be so much sex and violence in even our children’s entertainment, is a huge symptom of a broken faith.

The first piece of this puzzle is so obvious it is amazing that Christians have not sought to solve it. Every non-denominational church that I have visited has had its roots in a specific denomination, and its services did not change – only the name did in an effort to increase their congregations. Where do you find justification for denominations in the Bible? I have searched and searched, and do not find any instructions for hundreds of denominations consisting of what is supposed to be The Body of Christ. Every Christian should understand the exact same experience when they read the Bible. The fact of the denominations dividing, and subdividing, in America for over two centuries, should tell us how errant Americans have been regarding their Christian faith. There should be one church, the True Church, The Body of Christ as is described of the gentiles in the Pauline Epistles. Period.

What is just as bewildering is the second piece of the puzzle. There are over 900 English translations of the Christian Holy Bible. Our Christian Holy Bible is the combined Old Testament and the New Testament. I am being very specific in my words here so there is no misunderstanding. If you want to conquer any group of people, all you have to do is divide them, confound, and confuse them. How did we let this happen to us? Man in his arrogance thought he could convince others that the Bible needed man’s “interpreting.” Man in his arrogance actually believed it was his job to change the words, which changes the meanings of the words. There are warnings in the Bible for changing the words, and for teachers who have sway over innocent minds and lead them astray.

The founders stated that only a moral nation could truly produce a society of free citizens. The reasoning for this is because only a moral citizenry is able to govern themselves as free citizens. Today, our laws are changing before our eyes, and becoming laws that are designed to condemn innocent citizens – preparing us for Fascists or a dictator to control us. This awful phenomenon happens when a moral nation degenerates itself to a Godless, immoral nation.  I ask you to pray with me today and every day for a miracle. It would surely be an awesome miracle if America’s Christians . . . were to come together in the True Church as The Body of Christ . . . and, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  (2Chronicles 7:14) Whose laws will we follow? Are we determined to be lazy citizens and follow man’s endless laws that our lawyers cannot consistently interpret, and are often designed to injure the best among us? Will we remember who we are, and once again follow God’s laws, which are unchanging and in the Bible most Americans trusted for generations?

I received a very good commentary, written by a pastor, from a friend of mine. At the end of the commentary was a scripture from the “New English Bible.” I decided to compare that scripture to the King James Bible. My comparison resulted in identifying many meaning changes. Even if the change is subtle, as in some of the changes, it is still a change from the King James Version.  This comparison is in the “Man or God? Companion Study” (listed as a separate item on my blog list).  The Bible verses I have been comparing come from The King James Bible (KJV) and the New English Bible (NEB) as follows:   Titus 2:11-14
