“What Ever Happened To Feeling Ashamed For Sinful Acts ?”

“What Ever Happened To Feeling Ashamed For Sinful Acts ?”

Before I arrived back in the USA recently, I had already been made aware and as well warned of the growing problems not only economically, but as well socially and spiritually in America. I was informed by concerned Christians and friends that what I would be returning to would be very disappointing. Unfortunately, they were correct. Don't get me wrong, I was glad in a way to get back home safely without being murdered by a police officer as I was informed several years before that I would be. I was in fact giving God all the glory for being there for me even when sleeping overnight in the airport my first day back(due to a flight cancellation). While in the airport, I was able to view a lot American national news on TV. Later on, when I was invited to a home to stay for a few days, I was handed a remote control for the (cable) TV and was allowed to “watch what ever I want(ed). “ I'll be very honest and frank, I was appalled and disgusted in what I was viewed. My friends who had warned me about American values slipping deeper into the abyss were sadly, and absolutely 100% correct. I couldn't believe the language, near nudity, violence and above all else, the brainless and heartless acceptance by many Americans all around me, acceptance of what is being produced for television these days. “Garbage” is the word that came to mind actually when thinking about what is on TV.

Reflecting a bit more not so much about what is displayed on TV but rather of the hearts of people, I have to ask, what ever became of “shame”? People seem to be shameless these days. Nudity, disregard for human life and profane words spew out of people's mouths on and off the TV screen and few apologize or have a sense that what is being said or heard is offensive to God. People used to be embarrassed or shameful if they were caught in such events mentioned earlier. I mean, when was the last time you seen someone blush when there was a scene of passionate kissing, sexual scenes and the like on TV ? Have we really “gotten over our sexuality” ? or is it instead the reality that satan has desensitized us by bombarding us with so much “garbage” for so long, that it has brought us to think that God is some how “OK.” with having a toilet tongue and other things we see on TV?

These are important questions for all of us because what we ingest(not just food) with our eyes and ears will and does have an effect on all of us a society. God has put some Bible Scriptures on my heart and I want all of us to reflect upon them for not only the good of our souls, but also the good of our children, families, nation and world;

*1 Corinthians 15:34 “Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. “

This Bible verse speaks directly to every person who will acknowledge God. The Word of God implores us to “Awake” to God's ways, His righteousness and then activate His ways in our lives. To “awake” means that we have fallen asleep to God's precepts and that we walk about and do things in a slumber(also read ). God has a way that is contrary to our “flesh” so the Bible speaks. What is also described as flesh in the Bible is the “sin nature” that attracts us to “garbage” television programming and the more we view this stuff, the more we get comfortable living “in the garbage dump.”

*Ezekiel 16:63 “That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.”

That again, if we truly belong to God through Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit will never stop trying to give you notice of what is of God and what is of satan and or the flesh. We can dull our sensitivity to the Holy Spirit's warnings and prodding(kind of an alarm) however by ignoring those warnings but God does not quit sending us messages about what is good or bad for us.

*Colossians 3:8 “But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, from your lips.”

This Bible passage is not a suggestion, it is a directive to all of God's people. All negative personality and fleshly/sinful issues listed above are equally important in matter of negativity but please take notice of the last two items listed; “ slander, and filthy language.” If we are not to have these bad character traits within us, how much more that we should not subject ourselves(purposely) to those things by watching them on the “tube” ?

*Luke 9:23 “And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”

The appalling TV programs and those negative things that draw us away from God can only be accomplished through following a course that includes the cross of Christ. Americans have gotten into a habit of demanding “rights” without also upholding the God given responsibilities that go along with those rights. Many of our Founding Fathers knew that God was part of the equation so as not to drift off to evil as many television executives seem to have done(and drag us off along to hellish things with them).

A good dose of shame and repentance is due in America(around the world for that matter). Evil has run a muck for way to long. The devil has taken control of many hearts and minds through the use of “garbage” TV among many other things.

Say yes to wholesome talk and things of God, say NO! To the devil and the TV Producers who air garbage on TV ! Write or e-mail them and remind them of God's Word in Ephesians 4:29 “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”

Are Pants Police A Healthy Thing ?

I know with the 2012 Presidential Election just getting heated up, that what I am sharing here may seem a little “off track” compared to being relevant and perhaps news worthy but I wanted to get this information out because as the national media continues to pay attention to the “larger picture “ of what they deem as national interest for public consumption, I am as usual, instead looking at the more detailed situations of what is occurring nationally as well as internationally. I like to address what is truly important and are the relevant matters of in the real world in which we live. This weeks topic regarding the “pants police” is an important American( and perhaps internationally as well) national issue and I only ask that you read on in my article as to see why.

Yes, as I mentioned, the “ Pants Police” are real. That's correct, the immoral-moral police have begun their decent upon all in the USA. Recently in New York City, a non-government group called Metropolitan Etiquette Authority has created and posted signs and implemented some sort of “a one-man manners squad” by hanging “Pull Up Your Pants” signs throughout the Metropolitan New York City Area. Young boys, teens and even men have been wearing their pants down low so that their underwear sticks out and apparently many people have voiced their opinion loud enough so that there are apparently moral police available to point out distasteful clothing styles. Cities around the United States have even gone so far as creating laws where if a person decides to hang their pants to low, that person can be given a ticket and later fined if found guilty. Sound scary yet ?

I gotta ask though is this a good thing ? I mean is someone who walks around with their underwear hanging out of their pants bad taste or is it really a criminal act ? I ask this because many people who “set the moral compass” of today's America are they themselves hypocrites regarding morality. How many legislators as of late have been sacked due to “sexting” ? How many judges/lawyers are caught driving while intoxicated, making outlandish rulings with no regards to the U.S Constitution ? While we would hope it would be good moral Bible believing Christians and or Jews that were setting the tone for such moral objections to such matters as “saggy pants”, In reality it is not those who have Biblical truth behind them that are making the moral objections and instituting moral authority over the clothing offenders as many would hope. No, the hard and difficult truth is that by and large unfortunately, we have immoral people in the USA that have made themselves the moral police over others when it comes to how we all are to live. Let's face it, we have some very sick minded people who will some how self-certify themselves telling us how to eat, sleep, where to go, how to and where to go, when to do in everything ! Is this healthy ? I mean as I mentioned earlier, the vast majority of these folks who tell us how to live our lives these days are they themselves hypocrites, involving themselves in all sorts of shady behaviors and do what they want, but yet get away with telling us how to live and pointing out our supposed “fault” while they do the most vilest of things imaginable.

By now In my article I must admit, I probably have many a Ron Paul and Libertarians jumping for joy over what I have written thus far but before those sort of folks begin signing me up for “Ron Paul for President” websites, let me clarify here that what I am writing about is not personal liberty alone. What I am saying is that there are many folks that are making judgment calls, who have also put themselves in authority over our lives that have learned from a source outside of God and the Bible and that makes it very dangerous for all our personal liberties. Anything decisions outside of the Bible will be sure to bring on disaster.

Even our American and many of our state's governments have “government agents” who are labeled “experts” in fighting a war against “criminals”and bad behavior but I believe at this point and time in our world, we need to ask the questions as to how people became to be called “criminals” or “bad behavior” in the first place? Was this a judgment that is from the Bible ? and what “crime” or “bad behavior” did they commit ? We also need visit the questions “Who made the laws that deems someone a 'criminal' ” ? and by what Divine Authority do people institute these laws labeling others “bad people“ ? If we now go back to the “moral police” I mentioned earlier, we can easily see they themselves have little to no morals. We also find that they only learned some sort of man made doctrine or theory in which they at some point also made up in their own mind that something “right or wrong” based on someone else's thoughts. Many folks inevitably deleted God from the equation of right and wrong, and now we are all in trouble. If you're looking for clarity to my point and statement, here it is; unfortunately in today's world to many people have been placed in authority that can for any reason come up with a law that deems anything illegal without reference to God and or the Bible. Saggy pants included.

Yes, I freely admit I'm against baggy pants and are a bad idea for many reasons. Should they be outlawed ? Well, I'll tell you what, when women who have their boobies hanging out of their clothes also have the same scrutinizing on the same level as the men with the baggy pants issues, then we'll talk. Bottom line though is this; I believe that the reason we are confronting these issues of immoral people making moral judgments for the rest of us is because the Body Of Christ, the real Christian Church still has their head in the sand and need to do as they are instructed in Titus Chapter 2. If the Christians would go back to utilizing and teaching the Bible, many in the world would not have to go through such wasted time in hanging ridiculous “moral” judgment signs. For those who are unfamiliar with the Bible or Titus Chapter 2: 1-8, Let me state this, God has a plan to help defeat much more than bad taste in clothes. He has a plan on how to help set healthy standards so that we will not need to listen to ill gotten advice from immoral and hypocritical folks like those of the Metropolitan Etiquette Authority.

Anytime, “man” gets a “bright idea” as how to tell the rest of the world how to live, we should all get more than “just a little nervous.” I highly suggest the Church gets out here and doing their job-as the Bible says so. We need God these days more then ever, not the government, drunk politicians, pedophiles, nor the mentally deranged telling us how to live.

Titus Chapter 2:1-8
“ But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.
Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded, in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you. “

Mayor Bloomberg, Advocate Of The Devil ??

Mayor Bloomberg, Advocate Of The Devil ??

Ten years, yes it's been ten years since to 911 attacks. Hard to believe but it's true. We Americans are getting ready to recognize an important historical event and the very people who responded to the disaster are not invited ! That's right folks. Mayor Bloomberg has decided that first responders like the police, firefighters, FBI Agents, CIA Agents, etc...who ran towards the 911 tragedy to help, not away from it, are not invited. Instead these hero's can go to a park and watch the anniversary event on a large screen TV. If that bright idea of Bloomberg doesn't sit well with you and made you sick and angry enough, oh by the way, God is not invited either. Christian leaders have been excluded from the 911 ten year anniversary event. No prayers will be offered up to God asking for forgiveness, healing nor restoration to our nation.

I cannot think of anything more idiotic than to disrespect the people who risked their very lives by locking them out. Well, there is one thing more idiotic in my view than disrespecting the 911 first responders, that is by disrespecting God and His people. If there was ever a time in our nation that we needed to seek God for healing and reconciliation, it is now. Mayor Bloomberg in all his “wisdom” apparently believes that we as a nation don't need to seeks God's direction or His Biblical Wisdom. The Bible however makes it quite clear that if we disobey God and His precepts and commands, we will become a cursed people. Mayor Bloomberg among many others in our Federal, State and local governments have taken upon themselves to make laws, rules all according to “man's intellect” and now we see disaster upon disaster for their foolish decisions. I have to ask, has anyone ever explained to Mayor Bloomberg why the 911 disaster was allowed by God Himself and a it was a warning to us all as a nation to repent of such arrogant and a foolish idea that we think we are smarter than God?

Somehow I don't think soon after the 911 ten year anniversary event, it's going to go well for America. Unless Mayor Bloomberg learns a little humility, Bloomberg is going to move forward with this 911 event and making many people very angry, God included. As we study Biblical history, we can see what occurred to Israel and Judah when they came to a place also where they believed they knew better then God, tragedy soon followed. Sometimes when I read the Old Testament accounts of both Israel and Judah in their rebelliousness attitudes towards God, I have to wonder if God just laughed at them at first. I get a picture of Shirley MacLaine in my mind with her famous cry to the heaven's; “ I am god.” What a fool ! And Bloomberg is just as much a fool for such an attitude as his regarding the 911 anniversary event.

When will America learn ? Yes, when will we learn ? we as a nation have corrupted ourselves. We want recognition, we want to appease everyone and that includes the devil. Why though ? Why would people in our governments, people with power and control want to destroy our nation ?What possible benefit could there be to “just try to get along” and “don't make the atheists or the Islamists angry” ? Well for Bloomberg, one of the richest men in America, he's got something up his sleeve and it has nothing to do with helping you, I or our fellow American neighbors, no. Bloomberg has got money tied up somewhere and with someone and that someone is working for the devil ! Don't be fooled America, Just like President Obama, Mayor Bloomberg is not stupid nor is he ignorant. These men and many others like them are bringing a purposeful destruction to our nation and that unless Christians and good American's everywhere stand up now, right now !, You may very well see on the eleventh year anniversary event of 911, view next years event our nations leaders apologizing to the Islamists for their “being forced to fly those planes into the twin towers to teach America a lesson.” Oh ya, at that time, all our women will also be wearing burkas and all our men will be slaves to the Islamists. Don't believe me ? Read your Bible.
