Today’s quote is from Lisa Bender, Minnesota City Council President.

“Over last two weeks we’ve seen thousands of people in Minnesota take to the streets and raise their voices for change, telling us that incremental reform has not worked to keep our communities safe. We are also seeing major institutions like the University of Minnesota, our parks and schools, major business, and art institutions ending their relationship with our police department. So, it is clear that we need to make major shifts both in the short term and [abruptly ended that thought]. Our community is ready to reimagine public safety from the ground up to then holistically – to make sure every single member of our community is safe.” 

WOW This statement is filled with so many Rhetorical Devices, where do I begin?  . . .

“Over last two weeks we’ve seen thousands of people in Minnesota take to the streets and raise their voices for change, telling us that incremental reform has not worked to keep our communities safe.”

This statement suffers from “Proof Surrogate Fallacy” Rhetoric; an expression in place of actual authority. The actual authority lies with the entire community of citizens, not just the ones protesting. Protesters cannot speak for those citizens not present – the actual majority. Should any City Council make major changes without the support of the citizen majority, they will find themselves soon out of a job – and rightly so.

Let us look at what does “incremental reform” mean? I borrowed this example from another industry and changed it to reflect Policing Systems Reform:

Incremental Reforms of the Local Policing System should be offered only within the context of steps toward larger reform goals, so that the local citizen can evaluate the final destination as well as the individual steps.

Preferably, these specific reforms should be discussed as part of a sorely needed local televised debate (beginning early afternoon) about the basic features of the Local Policing Systems (the current system, and any future models proposed to replace current system), which the local city should deliver in stages. Indeed, public understanding of the merits of rival proposals is hardly possible without such an open debate on the fundamentals. Whatever structural reforms we achieve should not be the haphazard result of disconnected incremental actions, nor should they be the undisclosed objectives of step-by-step reforms.

Most incremental reforms under discussion would move the Local Policing System in one of three broad discussion topics:

The first topic of reform would expand on the current system, with varying degrees of changes and, with detailed presentation of alternate proposed future systems.

In the second comparative topic of reform, local government would determine the cost of the current proposed changes to existing system, as well as the cost of alternate proposed systems.

The third topic of reform would involve local policing service to businesses, schools, parks, malls, etc. – full disclosure of current and proposed services including cost analysis.

I like the Incremental Reform Plan which incorporates every citizen involvement as are interested in being involved. I would love to see someone like me organize it – just not me, someone much healthier.

“We are also seeing major institutions like the University of Minnesota, our parks and schools, major business, and art institutions ending their relationship with our police department.”

Common Practice Fallacy argument – just because some historically liberally run organizations are doing something, does not mean the majority are doing it.

“So it is clear that we need to make major shifts both in the short term and [abruptly ended that thought].”

Hyperbole Fallacy, better known as B S.

Clear to who? This small subset of all citizens should never make such a leap without somewhere to leap to AND with the consensus of all citizens. Public debate, then voting should happen.

“Our community is ready to reimagine public safety from the ground up to then holistically – to make sure every single member of our community is safe.”

We have a Line Drawing Fallacy at play; a dash of Subjectivism Fallacy, as well as Argument From Outrage Fallacy; working on a possible Straw Man Fallacy; a Wishful Thinking, and Group Think Fallacies;
not to mention that this whole thing is a huge SLIPPERY SLOPE FALLACY!

If you let a handful of people disband your law and order AND REPLACE IT WITH THEIR POLITICAL CRONIES ONLY – I cannot imagine anything they would deny themselves afterwards. Yes, this is a huge SLIPPERY SLOPE FALLACY!

This statement ends in a promise that she cannot possibly keep – Rationalizing Fallacy – appealing to that Group Think Fallacy.

Lisa Bender, Minnesota City Council President.

This is an out of control City Council President – YO! Citizens! You may want to put her on some kind of probation and shorten her authority leash from “Dictator” down to “Public Servant”.

TEXAS LADY JUANITA

When I was young, I fell in love with a hymn that has stuck with me in my top ten favorite songs for about 60 years. I remember singing “Let There Be Peace On Earth” in church. I remember it being sung at Woodstock. Harry Connick, Jr., and Vince Gill are among the many star singers who have sung it. The lyrics that America would benefit to remember are at the end of this commentary. The lines I wish to share are: “With God as our Father; brothers all are we. Let me walk with my brother, in perfect harmony.”

Baby Boomers loving and learning such songs in our youth, it is no wonder that we expressed a love of all people to our children and demonstrated the same in our careers. My children did not have a racist bone in their bodies.

I have lived in six different states: Texas, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Nevada, and Illinois. Even though Illinois did not show the instant friendliness I was used to in the south, the racial issues was almost non-existent for my children, and for myself in all six states. Our President is man of his words. Unlike other Presidents, he has kept his campaign promises, and has been a successful champion of all minorities. My family is very alarmed at what we are seeing played out in the news by only a few of our 360 million citizens.

Our President is being persecuted by the D S for turning our Republic around to being a nation by and for the people again. I barely can explain to my grandchildren the evil lies and deeds that have happened in our nation in past administrations IN THE NAME OF AMERICA. Having been raised to treat all people good, and have proven themselves to be good adults, they do not deserve for their Republic to fall apart.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYER FOR OUR REPUBLIC, IT’S CITIZENS, AND IT’S PRESIDENT.

“1 Peter 2:15-17
For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.”
[We have no king; we have instead a Constitution.]

“1 Peter 3:9-18
Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”

LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as our father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With god as our father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me”

TEXAS LADY JUANITA

I would like to call attention to Acts of the Apostles, the last chapter, as spoken to the Gentiles regarding the truthfulness of the Gospel regarding Christ, which reminds me of Americans in this modern time regarding truth.

“ACTS 28:26-27
Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.”

I would like to give you information regarding the truth of two issues. The first is in regards as to why Judge Sullivan would continue to keep the General Flynn case going – even though he knows his actions are un-constitutional. He is falling on his sword to keep General Flynn from talking much truth. The Supreme Court ruled against what Judge Sullivan has done and will rule against it again. So why is he doing it? If the case has not yet been dismissed, General Flynn is still under a gag order. As soon as the case is finally dismissed General Flynn will start talking BIG TIME! That is why Judge Sullivan is ruining his career and reputation – because the liberal left has most likely threatened him, to gain his compliance with their agenda. President Obama, among others, has much to lose when General Flynn is able to speak.

And speaking of agenda:
The second lie is regarding the black male in America and the police – does history support the BLM rhetoric? NO.
Here are figures you can easily look up for yourself:

FOLLOW THE FACTS TO THE BOTTOM.
America’s population is about 630 million.
18% of America’s population is Black.
60% of America’s population (less White Hispanic) is White.
2019 Black killed by police = 235; White killed by police = 370. (Most killed
were armed – both races.)
2018 Black killed by police = 209; White Killed by police = 399. (Ditto.)

2017 Black killed by police = 223; White killed by police = 457. (Ditto.)
Over 50% of violent crimes are committed by Black race. (6% of Black
population are men and do most of these violent crimes and
therefore most likely to have run-ins with police.)
NEW YORK CITY – Blacks do 75% of shootings, and 62% of all murders;
Whites do 3% of all murders.
Major corporations and government officials are supporting Black Lives
Matter.
94% of BLACK MEN MURDERED ARE MURDERED BY OTHER BLACK
MEN.
THE POLICE ARE 18.5% MORE LIKELY TO BE SHOT BY A BLACK MAN, than
the other way around.
THE ENTIRE BLM RHETORIC IS A LIE.

IT IS BIBLICAL ~ JUNE 5, 2020

TEXAS LADY JUANITA

No sooner than I started writing again, I became KO’d by some predictable medical crap, and then a monumental heartbreak which has had a choke hold on my writing. Then I discovered something for the umpteenth time, the best way through it is to express it.

First, and least important, I hit one of my slumps in kicking the butts of my 5 degenerative diseases. RA seems to only come second to Degenerative Spine disease. The nature of my diseases does not lend itself to striking out to be a social butterfly and making new friends. My late husband instilled one idea in me that stuck – “It is what it is.” Life goes on, and I endeavor to concentrate on the many blessings I am thankful for.

Second, and of supreme importance, a favorite family member took his life a few days ago. My heart breaks for his Mamma, for we are not wanting to outlive our children. I cannot imagine the size of her grief. I usually have no trouble talking, but I have no words compassionate enough. I cannot possibly know how she feels for it has not happened to me. She lost her husband, who was my brother Rudy, a little over a year ago; and this feels too close to process.

A year before I lost my brother, I lost my John. I know how this is tragically too close. Shortly after losing John, my oldest attempted suicide. I am not desensitized. I am absolutely the opposite of that. I just keep losing people, and the pain is almost unbearable.

In my family, and extended family, over several years, have been four Generation X suicides, and the one attempted suicide. Most left behind young children, and family who are still struggling to understand. Those who do not leave a note behind generate a particularly perplexing brand of heartache. I seem to not only mourn the current loss, but mourn the cumulative loss of the five young (to me) family members each time . . . and I have been searching for the why of it.

Generation X has some unique statistics which may explain why these beloved family members would choose to check out before their lives had a chance to blossom in many ways. They will never gain the perspective we gain when raising a family through to adulthood, seeing a career through to retirement, and the safe and secure feeling one has with a spouse of 20, 30, and even 40 or more years.

Statistics show that Generation X is the first generation since the Civil War to not do better financially, or in status to the community as the generation before – Baby Boomers. Whatever we Baby Boomers have that made us so dynamic has skipped a generation and is showing up in the Millennials (Gen. Y). Today, tech empires hire people 30 years old and younger, skipping Generation X. No one is willing to commit as to the reason for this, except to say that there is an air of despair in so many Generation X.

It is my opinion that like so many severe government budget cuts that affected Generation X’s education, they instinctively know that it will be their generation to pay into Social Security, but never receive a dime of it back. No one knows this for sure, but they know how to add and subtract, and read the writing on the wall. Eventually some generation will have to take one for the team. But the Generation X team have not been merry savers. Many will never retire, but work until they are incredibly old.

Being full of opinion today, I think it is also about excuses. Baby Boomers were excessively disciplined by The Greatest Generation. After all, the Greatest Generation lived through the depression and WWII (as we were reminded of frequently). We Baby Boomers may have let our offspring off the hook for bad behavior by demonstrably loving them, NO MATTER WHAT. By the time they figured out how flawed their parents were, they did what we always let them do – make excuses, therefore it will always be our fault. I am speaking of myself directly and any other Baby Boomers who loved their children no more or less than my parents or grandparents ~ the difference is that the Greatest Generation perhaps were more constructive disciplinarians than their children would be.

I searched the scriptures for help, and decided with Proverb 18, that The Lord understands the dilemma of my heart ache. “Proverb 18:14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?” If our spirit is grounded in Christ, we will survive the emotional losses; but if we are not grounded in Christ, our grief is unbearable. So be it, I choose Christ every time.

I then searched the scriptures to lift my spirit and found none better suited for redirection, and to the enormity of my heart ache than my favorite:

“Philippians 4:4-13
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again, I say, Rejoice.
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Yes. Amen.

“MATTHEW 5:9
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”

Calling all Christians to step back and see what is really happening. Use your powers of reasoning and deduction. Start asking the right questions in a large voice that you have together. If Christians would stand together as a group, you would see that there is no larger voice in this country.

Speaking of the largest voice in America, where is our Christian Lobby in Congress? If Christians had not divided and sub-divided The Body of Christ, The Church, we would have known to have our presence in everything American, including the government. If we are not there, one guess of who is.

The enemy within is expending every attack on us that they can think of. They were sloppy because they thought they would retain the power; they are now sloppy because they are desperate. We ask honest questions and lies intermingled with some truth is what we always receive in return. Jesus commands that we be not deceived; and it takes some prayer, digging and inspection to arrive at the truth. There are so many on the internet trying to get the truth out. My favorites are “And We Know” and “X22 Report (6 nights a week, two reports, “a” and “b”). The Epoch Times is a great newspaper – digital and print.

Look at what the enemy within has tried:
Russiagate
Impeachgate
Pandemicgate / Calling for Vaccinegate
RaceWargate

Upon honest prayer, digging, and inspection you will find the truth ~ but do not be too long about it. Millions have done their homework, and already know the truth. For truth to prevail, the masses must look for it ~ NOW.

Here are good questions regarding the most recent False Flag ~ RaceWargate:
What is the motive of this murder? (Stealing the upcoming election?)
What is happening to our country because of it? (Total chaos? Financial ruin for many? Keeping the cities in lockdown?)
Who stands to gain from what is happening? (Evil?)
Why has Antifa, or a group that behaves like Antifa, intervened and stolen the day (and nights) from those marching in remembrance of the victim? (Keep you glued to MSM? **Inciting many to HATE?)

Here is an interesting quote:
“Destroying America will be the culmination of my life’s work.” George Soros

“JAMES 1-5
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men LIBERTY, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”

**”LEVITICUS 19:18
Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I Am The Lord.”

”JOHN 14:27
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.”

TEXAS LADY JUANITA

The institution of marriage may be the future success story America needs to turn our population back on the path that rescues the happy family. Even though the statistics say that America has a 40% to 50% divorce rate (depending on which statistics you look at), I believe it is possible for this to greatly improve. When I finally got it right after several failures, people whom I knew from casually to people I knew closely wanted to know John’s and my secret to the perfect marriage. We had something others wanted. I am not sure exactly what others believed about how we achieved this desirable relationship.

The surprise is that we never worked at our marriage. The following things came naturally and could be easily seen:
~ Equally yoked: Respect, Love, Romance, Intellect, Education, Values, and Morals.
~ Equal givers – Neither of us had ever been married to a giver until we married. We were happy givers.
~ The “Crystal Ball Pact” – Neither of us had a crystal ball, nor could we read each other’s mind. We made a pact that if we wanted something, or some romantic event, we would simply tell each other our daily heart’s desires.
~ In 23 years neither of us ran out of things to talk about because we genuinely liked each other.
~ We each had separate interests we could pursue at home.
~ We each included the other in pursuing interests outside the home.
~ We were best friends.
~ We fell in love almost instantly; so that throws out the necessity for long courtship before marriage. We courted throughout our marriage – like a habit we both loved – dating and courtship.
~ THE MOST IMPORTANT: We took the marriage scriptures in The Holy Bible to heart. God made us different for a reason, and we each enjoyed our differences. No ship can have two Captains. John was the head of our family, and he consulted with me on every issue of importance. Others said that was okay because she got her heart’s desires . . . AND SO DID HE.

Genesis 2:18, 21-24
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.~ ~ ~ And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Proverbs 18:22
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

Ephesians 5:22-25, 28-33
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; ~ ~ ~  So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless, let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

RHETORICAL DEVICES WEDNESDAY ~ MAY 20, 2020

Note – Late posting due to cable / internet problems for at least a week. I fixed it!! All by myself!!

TEXAS LADY JUANITA

Today we will explore a Rhetorical Device used to make an extravagant overstatement. Such an overstatement is called HYPERBOLE. Sadly, most assume that such a bold statement is a true statement and is more than likely not true. HYPERBOLE is used to affect the emotions of the reader in extremes.

Today’s article clip is from the New York Times article, “Child Vaccinations Plummet 63 Percent, a New Hurdle for N.Y.C. Schools,” By Eliza Shapiro. She is accurately reporting what New York’s Mayor DeBlasio said. It is Mr. DeBlasio who is using HYPERBOLE to instill fear into parents:      “The pieces unfortunately start to fit together in a way that should cause parents real concern,” Mr. DeBlasio said in his daily news briefing. Unvaccinated children, he said, could be “at greater threat of contracting a disease that could then put them at a greater threat of contracting Covid.”

To quote N Y Governor Cuomo, in a separate article, “Thankfully, this new syndrome is still quite rare and it is treatable, and most kids who develop it fully recover.” New York state has a population of almost 20 million; 1.7 million are children seventeen and under. The article stated there have only been about 102 cases. This article can be found https://nyti.ms/3cKC7GQ This article is very exhaustive in information regarding this new syndrome that doctors believe might be attributable to the Covid virus. In this article I found no reference of the regular school vaccinations helping children to not contract the Covid virus. Mayor DeBlasio stating otherwise is irresponsible; and one can only conclude he either does not know what he is talking about, or he was using it as HYPERBOLE to instill fear.

There are about 50 types of Rhetorical Devices that authors use much too often as persuasive deceit. Rhetoric persuades rather than prove logically, and factually. Some similar devices to Hyperbole, and in today’s example some are synonymous:
~Slippery Slope – Arguing that because x happens, then y and/or z will also happen.
~Proof Surrogate – Expression in place of actual evidence or authority.
~Scare Tactics – Frightening scenario instead of facts to persuade someone to see it your way.
~Loaded Question – Question that rests on one or more unwarranted or unjustified assumptions.
~Appeal to Ignorance – Lack of evidence against a claim doesn’t mean the claim gets any positive points.

It is very important to become familiar with these devices so you can recognize them when they are used to fool you in some way.

~ Was not the Tower of Babel the first attempt at One World Order?
~ Were not these ancient leaders Cyrus, Genghis, and Alexander all striving for One World Order?
~ Were not the Kings and Queens of England, as well as many European rulers such as Napoleon and Hitler striving for One World Order?
~ Break all strivers of a One World Order down to a common denominator and you arrive at this: Evil / Satan wants to thwart God’s Plans ~ Evil vs. Good.

I know how this story ends ~ I cheated and studied God’s Word. The Jewish Biblical scholars know that prophecy is pattern. When reading the Bible, we see the same patterns repeat themselves. If you reduce the stories down to pattern, you will see patterns that you can apply to the timeline since Biblical Times.
You can prophesy the future by knowing these patterns.

Having said that, I am a watchman watching for the final break in the patterns, when my Lord will call me up to Heaven (unless I am honored to be called first). My immediate reward for studying the Bible is that my hope has turned to faith. As a watchman I know what season to look for, and I believe we are so remarkably close. No, I do not know the hour or the day, but I believe we are in the season, with no idea how long this season will last.

Instead of worrying about a One World Government that has not yet happened, Americans who are against a path to a One World Government must vote for Trump, and Trump Republicans in numbers of Biblical proportion. Numbers that surpass any cheating done by the Enemy. It is sad that voting in the majority is no longer enough, we must also cover any cheating done in machines owned by people like Soros, and possible thousands of boxes of fraudulent mail in ballots.

Romans 12:2
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

2 Chronicles 32:7-8
Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

Psalm 27-1
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

John 14:27
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.

Hebrews 13:5-6
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

If you tell lies about someone, you are a thief ~ stealing the truth. Such thieves crush men of good character; and of evil men they present them as saints. In the MSM we are bombarded hourly by a cult of liars and thieves. The damage to the virtue, and morale of our nation has been devastating.

Dear Lord, I am asking for the truth to be received by all people, as the declassification of documents continue to be released to the public in the following weeks. Please protect us from past, present, and future liars. Amen

1 John 2:8 – 11
Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

Proverbs 12:17-22
He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.
There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.
There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.
Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.

Ephesians 5:6
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

1 Peter 3:10-11
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

Jesus’ Church has been largely defiled and divided asunder by thousands of vain man-made denominations. When many of you left these institutions, you should have come together as His Church with His Word to sustain you individually, and as local groups instead of going it alone. None are more guilty than I of avoiding fellowship. Small neighborly groups are seeking each other out, and I pray for more of these groups to come together. Instead of tithing to build buildings where souls are lost in the daily grind to collect more and more funds to keep the doors open; tithing can be shared with those less fortunate right under our noses.

I would only caution small groups in the Bible they choose to study. The Holy Spirit was directly involved in the early translations. There is much ado in comparing the thousands of modern translations, and scholars have exhausted this subject. The easiest facts to find are the words that are translated in many ways that have altered the meanings intended. The Bible warns us of changing the meanings of His Scriptures. If we are praying for His TRUTH to be revealed to us, it will happen.

In today’s struggle for truth, we are bombarded with Satan’s lies broadcast coast to coast, 24 / 7/ 365, as arrows accusing the innocent. (Christianity is not for sissies!)
“Ephesians 6:16 ~ ABOVE ALL taking the shield of FAITH, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.”

When you think you can no longer bear this upside down world, where good is taken for evil, and evil taken for good, and the limitless buckets of wicked lies, you need to get in His Word . . .

“Revelation 12:10 ~ And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the Power of His Christ: FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN IS CAST DOWN, WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT.”
