Okay, I admit it. I am not a political genius. Not even a little bit. In fact, my views go little beyond what Rush Limbough or Glenn Beck have announced.

So I may be approaching this a little close minded. But then again, my reason has nothing to do with the actual bill.

The #1 reason the bill should not have passed is because the people did not want it to. The majority of American civilians have been crying out against this, yet they forced it into our lives.

So much for freedom, eh?

Now, how is this different from the smoking ban in Michigan, which I support? Well, the current health care that just got eradicated isn’t hurting anybody. Or at least not a viable amount of people, and certainly not as many as the new one will (in my opinion.)

I haven’t been this upset about politics in while. Off goes the radio.

I mean no disrespect to the Catholics who may end up reading this. But I simply cannot take your tradition seriously. I have examined scripture, and have found them to be both pointless and contradictory to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

For example, your near divination of Mary

Take a look at this verse in which Jesus rebukes a woman who praised Mary:

Luke 11:27-28
“And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed [is] the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed [are] they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Obviously Christ did not see any need to praise his Mother more than any other.

Sainthood

From what I understand, you must perform various miracles and be dead, among other things, to be considered a Saint among the Catholics.

Let us look at another scripture verse regarding Sainthood:

1 Corinthians 1:2
“Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called [to be] saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:”

They’re not dead and there are no miracles to speak of. Why are they regarded as Saints? Because they are sanctified in Jesus Christ.

If that’s not enough for you, here’s another one.

Ephesians 2:19
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;”

Ephesians has another troubling opposition to Catholics.

Jesus Christ is the mediator

I quoted Ephesians 2:19, but lets step back a little bit and read what else it has to offer:

Ephesians 2:18
“For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.”

Stop praying to the Saints! Jesus Christ is the only mediator between us and God. Don’t you remember when Saul tried to speak to the prophet Samuel after he had passed away? Was he not rebuked and met with a demon?

Confession

Ephesians 2:8
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Catholics have tried to earn their salvation in a number of ways, including “hail Marys.” Salvation is not for your to earn, but for God to give. Only through his Son Jesus Christ can you be saved.

And no, you are not supposed to confess to a Priest. Look throughout scripture, you will find that the man of God convicts the sinner, and the sinner repents to God.

David for example. He did no apologize to the Prophet who revealed the sin in his life, but rather he fell before God almighty and begged forgiveness.

Here is an account of a dedicated Catholic during confession:

“He told me I was absolved of my sins, and to go in peace.

I stared at him for a moment. “That’s it? Don’t I have to say Hail Marys? Our Fathers? The Creed? The Rosary? Anything?”

He laughed at me and told me to go do a good deed or something.”

The Priest told Her to “do a good deed or something.” How can I take that seriously? How can they argue that as scriptural? The rest of the story can be read here: http://caity.nu/musings/he-laughed-at-my-sins

There are too many holes and contradiction in Catholicism for me to offer any respect.

I have always said that having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a pee section in a pool. The dangers of second hand smoking, over hyped or not, are real. In light of this fact Gov. Granholm  has passed a smoke-free law making it illegal to smoke indoors in most of Michigan. Among the few exceptions are the Casinos and Cigar Clubs in Detroit.

Question: is this a violation of our freedom?

I think not. Although the ability to smoke will be taken away from many of our citizens, the health of just as many will be protected. Besides, is it not illegal to smoke marijuana? I would like somebody to tell me why that is illegal, yet smoking in general is not.

Narcotics are addictive, expensive and destructive.
Cigarettes are addictive, expensive and destructive.

Get them both out or neither one. Be consistent in your laws, draw a straight line.

I was worried at first that this law may come too close to violating our freedoms. But when I heard that it only prohibits indoor smoking I saw how health oriented it was, and how it could not be abused.

My brother brought up the point that a man out in the middle of a field smoking would not affect anybody. He should therefore not have his right taken away from him. The outdoors-only detail edifies that.

What do you think? Good or bad law? Is this big Government?

Thanks for reading.

I was driven to write this post due to the comments I received in my post, “The Shack: Page-By-Page Review.” I was surprised by how many Christians believed women to be equal. I had to take a closer look, and devote a post to it.

Women have gained so much towards equal rights with men. From the voting booth to the workplace, women are gaining a foothold.
In June 2009 women held 49.83% of our Nations jobs. Largely in part to men losing 4.74 million jobs and women only losing 1.66 million. Probably due to employment in growing fields such as government and health care, both dominated by women employees.

This is huge. For the first time in world history women could out-employ men. And for a long time I rooted them on.

Are women truly equal with men? I don’t mean in social standing, as things have far to go. But I mean in capability and design.

Let us look at scripture and find out. (more…)

Imagine seeing that in your headlines.

No, it has not yet happened. But I was speaking today with my Grandmother about his declining health, and she brought up the fact that we have been losing a lot of good preachers recently.
Where will America go, once these spiritual leaders have passed. If we think things are bad now, what will happen when Billy is gone?

I think things will get better.

2 Kings 2:9
And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

Elisha received a double portion of Gods anointing on Elijah. What do you think would be the effects of that? Let us look at the miracles preformed and experienced by both.

Elijah:

  • Causing the rain the cease for 3 1/2 years (1 Kings 17:1)
  • Being fed by the ravens (1 Kings 17:4)
  • Miracle of the barrel of meal and cruse of oil (1 Kings 17:14)
  • Resurrection of the widow’s son (1 Kings 17:22)
  • Calling of fire from heaven on the altar (1 Kings 18:38)
  • Causing it to rain (1 Kings 18:45)
  • Prophecy that Ahab’s sons would all be destroyed (1 Kings 21:22)
  • Prophecy that Jezebel would be eaten by dogs (1 Kings 21:23)
  • Prophecy that Ahaziah would die of his illness (2 Kings 1:4)
  • Calling fire from heaven upon the first 50 soldiers (2 Kings 2:10)
  • Calling fire from heaven upon the second 50 soldiers (2 Kings 2:12)
  • Parting of the Jordan (2 Kings 2:8)
  • Prophecy that Elisha should have a double portion of his spirit (2 Kings 2:10)
  • Being caught up to heaven in a whirlwind (2 Kings 2:11)

Elisha:

  • Parting of the Jordan (2 Kings 2:14)
  • Healing of the waters (2 Kings 2:21)
  • Curse of the she bears (2 Kings 2:24)
  • Filling of the valley with water (2 Kings 3:17)
  • Deception of the Moabites with the valley of blood (2 Kings 3:22)
  • Miracle of the vessels of oil (2 Kings 4:4)
  • Prophecy that the Shunammite woman would have a son (2 Kings 4:16)
  • Resurrection of the Shunammite’s son (2 Kings 4:34)
  • Healing of the gourds (2 Kings 4:41) 
  • Miracle of the bread (2 Kings 4:43)
  • Healing of Naaman (2 Kings 5:14)
  • Perception of Gehazi’s transgression (2 Kings 5:26)
  • Cursing Gehazi with leprosy (2 Kings 5:27)
  • Floating of the axe head (2 Kings 6:6)
  • Prophecy of the Syrian battle plans (2 Kings 6:9)
  • Vision of the chariots (2 Kings 6:17)
  • Smiting the Syrian army with blindness (2 Kings 6:18)
  • Restoring the sight of the Syrian army (2 Kings 6:20)
  • Prophecy of the end of the great famine (2 Kings 7:1)
  • Prophecy that the scoffing nobleman would see, but not partake of, the abundance (2 Kings 7:2)
  • Deception of the Syrians with the sound of chariots (2 Kings 7:6)
  • Prophecy of the seven-year famine (2 Kings 8:1)
  • Prophecy of Benhadad’s untimely death (2 Kings 8:10)
  • Prophecy of Hazael’s cruelty to Israel (2 Kings 8:12)
  • Prophecy that Jehu would smite the house of Ahab (2 Kings 9:7)
  • Prophecy that Joash would smite the Syrians at Aphek (2 Kings 13:17)
  • Prophecy that Joash would smite Syria thrice but not consume it (2 Kings 13:19)
  • Resurrection of the man touched by his bones (2 Kings 13:21)

Surrounding Elijah’s life was 14 miracles. Surrounding Elisha’s life, was 28 miracles. A perfect double.

Imagine that the day Graham passes away, an Evangelist or a humble Christian somewhere becomes anointed two-fold by God. Imagine it were so for every pastor, every evangelist, and every minister.

Scriptures reveal that in the end times, there will be an unprecedented outpouring of the holy spirit. Will this be why?
Good times are ahead of us.

Oh, how I love this video. It’s good, after debating with Atheists and Theists alike for a couple weeks, to step back and remember “I’m not a genius.”

Sapien means wise. Homo means human. Some scientist decided that we are no longer simply wise humans, but we are WISE WISE humans!

Right.

 

Thanks for reading guys. Enjoy the video.

A couple years ago I did not know too awful much about the Church of Mormon. My only piece of knowledge was that they wrote a book, and added it to the Bible. That in itself turned my heart against them.

Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him.Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Proverbs 30:6

Let us take a look at some of their beliefs, and how they compare to the un-altered word of God.

The Trinity – Not so Trinity:
It is Mormon teaching that the Godhead (Father, Spirit and Son) is not a united being, but actually 3 different people.
Christianity teaches that there is only one God. And he is complete in three forms, found in this verse:

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew 28:19

God in Flesh:
Mormonism teaches that God is in physical form. An actual person.

God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.
John 4:24

Earlier this year Principle Kay and Robert Freeman of Pace High School were cleared of contempt charges.

The ACLU headed up charges against them for having prayed in the High School.

Is this not a little ridiculous? Of course our Nation has lost sight of its heritage, but when was the last time you saw somebody take flak for their Islamic faith in a High School? Or Buddhism, or Hinduism, or even Witchcraft?

I am proud of Lay and Freeman. I am overjoyed that the Judge ruled in their favor. They have expressed pride in their faith, and shown they are not ashamed of their actions.

Remember to pray for those in their position. Pray for our students. Pray for our teachers. Pray for our High Schools. Pray in our High Schools.

On June 4th, 2009 President Obama spoke in a University at Cairo. I was greatly disturbed by what he had to say.

As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.  It was Islam — at places like Al-Azhar — that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment.
(President Obama)

Our debt to Islam? Before I go any further, the men and woman responsible for the inventions and advancements he listed that day, were indeed incredible people. However they lived in a Islamic country that would kill them if they were not Muslim. Their discoveries were dispite their religion, not because of it.

Islam is responsible for the deaths of millions. And when I say Islam, I do not mean radical Islam. I mean TRUE Islam. If you are Muslim and do not believe Christians all over the world should be put to death whatever way possible. you are not a Muslim. You are a light-weight copy.

Here are some verses from the Koran:

On August 19 the Lutheran Church in America voted to allow same
sex marriage and clergy. This video shows a tornado that hit
Minneapolis on August 19 around 2 pm at the time they voted. It
sheered the cross off the Lutheran church next to the conference
center where they were meeting. Here is the video:

 

I do believe God is not only capable of doing this, but very willing. He has warned us time and time again.

I don’t imagine he is done.
