You Can’t Fix Stupid

In the movie The Emperor, Kevin Kline portrays a classics professor at the prestigious all boys school St. Benedictus.  Annually, Kline’s character Mr. Hundert oversees the Julius Cesar festival, a competition to crown the best Cesar scholar of the year.  It is a highlight of the school year and in this particular year one student, Sedgwick Bell a student that has challenged Mr. Hundert all year with disrespect and adolescent antics wins the Julius Cesar competition to Mr. Hunderts Surprise.  It turns out that Bell was in fact cheating and brings great harm to Mr. Hundert, the history of the traditional event, and most poignantly the reputation of St. Benidictus.  In a tense scene where Mr. Hundert confronts Bell, the proud professor looks sternly at Bell and says, “You can’t fix stupid”.

I have lived in Arizona for 23 years now, just two hours from the border with Mexico.  I have witnessed the differing philosophies in border control.  In just sixty days our government has enacted a policy if allowed to continue will damage Arizona and the whole country significantly.  At the root of the issue is “Leftism”.  The philosophy pretends to have the goal of creating a society of perfection.   Leftism uses only one method, destroy opposing views at all costs.  Name one thing Leftism has ever done to better the state or people it influences.  Its sole reason for existence is to ruin and destroy what others have created.  

Once Leftism has achieved its goal of destruction and removal of a way of life, what does it propose to replace it with?  In its utopian pie in the sky theory it will establish a world of peace and goodness where everyone will live in happiness and harmony. Ironically, the only way to achieve the high and lofty goal is to destroy the status quo with confusion, violence, and hatred.  It never delivers on its promise, and yet time after time, year after year Leftism barrels ahead using lie after lie, scheme after scheme to garner the control it desires above all else.  

At the pace this is going, the country will be overrun with refugees believing the lies that America will be their Savior to the detriment of both them and all the people that cherish this country’s history and goodness.  What can we do? Leftism ruins everything wherever it is tried and in the words of Mr. Hundert, “You can’t fix stupid.”

The Theology of Gender is Absolute


       In the Beginning God (Theology) created the heavens and the earth (philosophy)

                         The Theology of Gender begins with God, the Creator.

God DESIGNED man and woman in Their Image to live in Relationship with each other for life.

The Glory of God – Father – Son – Holy Spirit existing in relationship together

Image Bearers – God creates Man and Woman in Their Image – Same but different

“God said this once and for all; how many times have I heard it repeated? Strength comes straight from God, and tenderness is yours oh Lord.”
Psalm 62-11-12 Message

Man = Strength and Hope Woman = Faith and Tenderness – Together One in God’s Image

Man and Woman – Human Beings – Co-equals Genesis 1:27

Male and Female – Genders – different but same Genesis 2:23

For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall be joined to his wife and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24

Marriage – One Relationship Forever

Children – Created by man and woman – God’s Design Genesis 1:28

Marriage and the Family are the remnant of God’s original Design.  The world is aggressively attempting to eliminate the remnant and is making alarming progress without any plan to replace it.  How do you produce a good society?  You make good people.  How do you make good people?  In the structure of the original design for marriage and the family. You make good children. You make good children you make a good society. It takes years and total commitment. Sin broke the relationship between man and God.  Sin is destroying relationships between husband and wife. Secularism is the enemy of marriage and family. 

Gender confusion took to the streets in the sixties and seventies.  It is now gender insanity.  It is designed to destroy the design of the family.  If you destroy the family unit the society crumbles.  It is not a conspiracy of ideological views or political parties. It is the onslaught of the opponents of the God of creation and His design.  It has taken all forms of disingenuous intellectual gymnastics attempting to justify sin. Feminism, normalizing of homosexuality, same sex marriage, now transgenderism. It is accelerating as fear of the absolute truth threatens to expose the nonsense for what it is.  

Marriage and family are hard work.  It takes a lifetime and ultimate commitment.  It is two people dedicated to raising good children, good citizens.  I shared the above chart with my students the last four years after a lifetime of learning from those before me that fought the fight and persevered through the years.  Returning to the model of years and years of committed marriage and family formation looks very grim.  Fight the fight for marriage and family.  The enemy grows stronger every day.

See where this is going?

The new power brokers are moving quickly to solidify their positions and power to hold it forever.  The scariest part of the agenda is the first three weeks of branding everyone in the country that disagrees with them and their agenda as domestic terrorists.  It is a gas lighting term that they have no desire to define, yet.  When it has been shouted and proclaimed enough, then the definition will be anyone and everyone with different ideas and that stands in their way must be eliminated at all costs.

Here is where this is going. Gaslight every day with lies that have no basis or credibility. Gas lighting in the public schools and Universities. The ideas create anger because they are untrue.  When they reach a boiling point someone who is unstable to begin with will react in a violent manner.  Since the gas lighting has been taking place relentlessly for so long the masses will believe that anyone who disagrees with those in power are truly domestic terrorists and they must  be suppressed, locked up, detained, reprogramed and controlled.  The justification will be there, the power in place, and the round up will begin.  News that disagree will be shut down, churches preaching hate and intolerance closed, they too are domestic terrorists.  And it is going to go very quickly.

It has only been three weeks and the left is moving faster than ever without any resistance. This has been coming for many years and and the moment has arrived.  Waiting to believe the system will neutralize this over time is fantasy.  The takeover is under way.  The people are in place to accomplish the transformation.  The longer this goes without pushback from leaders with the ability to fight the gas lighting will solidify the lies and truth will be without power. The good news is that truth will never be defeated. Never be silenced.  Jesus is the way the truth and the life.  He and we will not be silenced.  Hold onto Hope.

Domestic Terrorists?

It will be about food…

I acknowledge my redundancy. The crackdown the last week or so once again points to the similarities of the last four years in America with the human life story of Jesus.   If you are a United States Senator and  supported Trump in a public manner there are calls for you to be stripped of your elected position.  If you worked for Trump you will be black listed and may be denied another career.  If you voted for Trump you may face sanctions to force you to change your mind and behavior. There are calls to question the loyalty of servicemen in the military.  There is mass hysteria this week that there will be a colossal uprising starting on Wednesday.   

Hysterics?  Maybe.  It is clear that there is a serious desire to control the masses quickly.  How could you possibly do that? By using the oldest method on the books…Fear and intimidation.  And very soon it will be about food.  

Beginning last February in just weeks the American people gave up some of their freedoms due to the fear of death from a virus we knew nothing about.  We were told millions would die.  We were told it spreads like wildfire.  For the sake of the world and your life you will now follow these demands.  The American people followed dutifully and may I say quickly without even questioning the protocols.  Fear of death, fear of the unknown.  By sheer chance the arbiters of control seized upon the moment to demagogue.  It is what this is about…control.  This was and now continues to be a means to quickly secure control of the masses and the country is willingly obeying.

You cannot enter any retail establishment in the country without a mask.   Businesses, churches, schools, shut down.  You want to fly?  Wear a mask.  You want to worship don’t even think about it.  You want to buy food put on the mask or don’t come in.  The fear of death has been exploited to seize control.   How very quickly freedom can disappear.  The last firewall is the loyalty of the military. Signals have been sent to the military corps that soldiers may not be bound to follow the commander in chief if he or she calls on them to incite harm on others.  Think of the implications of that.  Think of the outright disrespect with cavalier statements.

The question is, how will the control seekers control millions?  In one word…food.  You want to buy food?  In addition to the mask some may need a card with the information required to qualify one to enter a store. You want to buy food online, you will have to secure a code to continue with a transaction.  Sounds hysterical.  Sounds conspiratorial.  Why would people in power desire such stringent control?  What could possibly be so dangerous that masses of people need to be curtailed or disabled?

I may be crazy but look at the last two weeks.  It went from admonishing to impeachment of Donald Trump. Leaders are calling for the  resignation of elected leaders that spoke out on his behalf.  The internet is banning anyone that supported Trump.  Business leaders are calling to black list anyone that worked for Trump.  One congressman has called for commissions to identify ways to eliminate certain media outlets and to reprogram those that have been corrupted by Donald Trump. Re-program?  Where?  This same leader sees no issue with putting people in disagreement in reorientation camps.  That sounds ominously familiar to the 1940s and China today. The end game is the control of anyone that disagrees with leftist ideas.  Impossible? Conspiracy theory? Wacky Trump supporter spreading insanity? 

Will masses of Americans need to fall in line again in a short period of time as obediently done for Covid 19?  Is there technology in place to control the masses?   Will the people in the positions of power and control have the means, desire, and ability to control millions?  With ease…food.

What will we do when we need a card in order to purchase food?  What will we do if we are required to denounce what we believe to be true in order to receive the card?  This is not 1970s Late Great Planet Earth stuff.  This is right in front of us…now.  And it will not take years to accomplish.

Here is a similar story.

     “And having arrested Him they led Him away, and brought Him to the house of the high priest; but Peter was following at a distance.  And after they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter was sitting among them.  And a certain servant-girl seeing him as he sat in the firelight, and looking intently at him said, “This man was with Him too”.  But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know Him.”  And a little later, another saw him and said, “You are one of them too.” But Peter said, “Man I am not.”  And after about an hour had passed, another man began to insist saying, “certainly this man was also with Him, for he is a Galilean too.”  But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.  And the Lord turned and looked at Peter.  And Peter remembered the word of the Lord how He had told him, “Before a rooster crows today, you will deny me three times. And he went out and wept bitterly.”

This is NOT about Trump.  Trump has been the speed bump.  This is about the Way, the Truth and the Life. Peter the eventual Rock of the church abandoned his best friend in just a few hours.  Fear and intimidation rendered him a blubbering coward.  This is at our doorstep.  Control of the masses is just a click away.  I am not writing to amp up the fear.  This is not about politics.  This is the reality that Jesus may be closer than anytime since he left.  This is about the method the enemy has used forever.  Intimidation and control to seize and manage power.  I’m scared.  I’m afraid that if and when the moment comes to stand up, I will be the blubbering coward.  I’m afraid for my children and grandchildren so much so that I may submit to the power seeking authorities and deny what I know to be right.  

Bill, you have gone off the deep end.  You may be showing signs of dementia?  Maybe.  Let’s say I am nuts.  Will the explosion of technology be thwarted and the power brokers  move toward using it to better the world and mankind?  Will the enemy decide that we should all step back and learn to love each other, especially the followers of Jesus? If and when given the opportunity to silence and control their enemies, will the control freaks come to their senses and reach out for the common good instead? The idea of this county collapsing has always been an abstract idea out there in space somewhere for all the apocalypse conspiracy quacks.  I’m not so sure anymore.

There is some encouraging news.  Peter became the rock of the church just like Jesus said he would.  Peter went to a cross of his own and died for his friend and Master.  Both are the grace of the same Lord we follow.  Despite his failure, and who of us has not failed Him, Jesus restored his friend and with that restoration the courage to live without fear.  Peter wrote to us:

      “But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed.  And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence, and keep a good conscience so that in the thing which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.  For it is better, if God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong.  For Christ also died for sins, once and for all, the just and the unjust, in order that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit.”

I desire that this will all blow over and our Lord spares us from madness and the world I grew up in will return for my children and grandchildren.  At the same time, I am going to prepare my heart and mind for what may be coming.  Either way, heaven awaits.  Peter will be there too.

Take Courage…We are not irrelevant…

Henri Nouwen wrote the following in the nineties:

“I am deeply convinced that the Christian leader of the future is called to be completely irrelevant and to stand in this world with nothing to offer but his or her own vulnerable self. That is the way Jesus came to reveal God’s love.  The great message that we have to carry, as ministers of God’s word and followers of Jesus, is that God loves us not because of what we do or accomplish, but because God has created us and redeemed us in love and has chosen us to proclaim that love as the true source of all human life.”

I disagree slightly with Mr. Nouwen.  I believe the church (institution) is already deemed irrelevant by the country and the culture.  Not only irrelevant, but viewed with disdain  and coming hatred. Henri Nouwen predicted it would be  the Christian leader that will be called to be irrelevant.  Presently the country and the world attempt to dismiss or ignore the church and its ideas as irrelevant. And yet they are scared.  They are desperate to eliminate the truth. But the truth resides in each of us that follow the way the truth and the life.  

Next Wednesday is not the beginning of the war on Christianity in America.  It began 160 years ago and spread to this country at the start of the 20th century.  (Blog May 2014).   It is the next step in the systematic attempt to remove the truth of Jesus Christ.  Donald Trump got in the way briefly. Next Wednesday the momentum will build to censor, isolate, silence, and even incarcerate followers of the truth.  While the leaders of the culture deem the church irrelevant, they are at the same time petrified of its influence.  In the hearts of non-followers is the relentless still small voice that challenges behaviors every day.  But even with undaunted, intense, daily determination eliminating the conscience is futile. I believe it is why we are witnessing insanity unfold before our very eyes.

Next Wednesday will not be the return to “normal”, the “staus quo”.  There will not be a coming together in unity.  It’s impossible.  Truth and evil cannot compromise, join together, become one in cause or idea.  Evil must be eliminated. The cosmic battle between good and evil came to earth the first Christmas night.  On Easter Sunday morning, the battle was over.  But the war has continued on and is about to engage this country and the world with immeasurable intensity.

Here I agree with Henri Nouwen.  If in fact the culture views the church as irrelevant it has underestimated the true church.  We are the church.  They may believe they can attack the institution and all will cower and collapse.  That will be a  serious and critical misjudgment.  Jesus lives and breathes in the heart of every follower.  Take one away, fifty more will take their place.  Not with arms and weapons.  Not with marches and protests.  Not with acclaim and notoriety.  But with as Nouwen says, “The great message that we have to carry, as ministers of God’s word and followers of Jesus, is that God loves us not because of what we do or accomplish, but because God has created us and redeemed us in love and has chosen us to proclaim that love as the true source of all human life.”

That will never be destroyed.  We may lose followers in the process.  We may face persecution (I never believed I would see it in this country my lifetime). The world may see us as irrelevant but they are scared silly of the love in our hearts.  Be ready to carry that love to the broken, the wounded, the enemy.  It makes us totally relevant in the Kingdom of Christ. 

    “Behold, and hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each to his own home, and to leave me alone; and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation, TAKE COURAGE, I have overcome the world.” John 16:32-33

Here it comes…

Whether they know it or not the globalist movement is moving toward one goal.  The elimination of Israel.  The tiny little nation is geographically located at the center of the world.  It is the most strategic place for a centralized world government capital.  The muslim nation has desired this location for 1600 years.  No question the power brokers of the world would cherish the opportunity to have this as the base of operations.  One problem…Americans.

The Israeli defense system is impressive.  So much so that all of its surrounding neighbors have failed to intimidate or take them out.  But, Israel would be in a precarious position if its only Allie was neutralized.  I have believed for a long time that it wold take a disaster of some kind, or many more years of indoctrination to see the collapse of the United States.  Not now.  It is not changing by years or months, it is coming in days and hours and the world is already seizing on the breakdown.

January 20 will be the launch of the end of the America we know.  The signs are increasing.  Kim Jung Un declares he is building more nukes targeted at United States Cities.  China will move now to reverse all the restraints that have hindered them the last 4 years.  The China virus demonstrates that they are capable of causing worldwide chaos without firing a shot.  Russia will emerge soon to test and see what America will when they rattling their sabres.  Iran is spouting off about the collapse of the American system and threatening retaliation.   They see it.  The incoming American leadership is weak.  Even those that claim to be Patriots in the government.

The Pentagon appears to be concerned more with changing the names of military bases than the threats of global armament.  The incoming leadership has signaled that it will accelerate not toward unification and restoration of the system as founded but will continue to tear down the culture with gender confusion, climate confusion, immigration confusion, and the coordinated mantra that this is a systematically racist country. We must join the rest of the world.

This is not about Trump.  Trump was the last gasp hope to slow down the tidal wave of global domination. Its why it has been four years of desperation attempting to eliminate him.  He stood not just in the way of America, but of the world. The president of the United States was censored by the two emerging power brokers. The tech companies are hijacking the power.  They are taking over the airwaves.  They are aligned with government leaders and the state media with one goal, control.  Control of what?  I am not sure they know or they do and have not revealed it to the masses.   The idea of one world order living in peace may be their ultimate dream and rhetoric but ironically the only way to achieve that goal is a violent  take over of anyone that disagrees.    It has been the communist mantra for over 100 years now.  Here it comes.

I didn’t believe it could happen so quickly.  It has been building for many many years so maybe it is not as rapid as it appears.  The incoming leadership and its allies has every intent of destroying this country. There is no desire to return or continue the legacy of the founders.  It is to be transformed.  Into what?  Into man’s image.  The only way to accomplish that is by control and force.  One example.  Man is now controlled by the smart phone.  It tracks us, it informs us. It will soon replace cash. Buying and selling are tracked and controlled.  It will ultimately be all about food.  Not a wild speculation, it is here.  Corona Virus is a fortuitous test run. Any crisis will be exaggerated to allow for control of communities, families, churches. Acquiring food will be managed by those that determine the correctness of your loyalty. Here it comes.

What is the endgame?  Israel must be removed.  Why?  Because you can’t build a world system in man’s image as long as there are some that follow a higher power.  In this case a higher power that the globalists fear is true.  America as a culture has systematically been abandoning the grace of the Christ.  It’s the same move Adam made in the garden.  It doesn’t work.  But man is forever trying to eliminate the truth of obedience. The truth that surrendering to God is the only hope for the world.  America and Israel are in the way of man’s freedom.

Thinking or acting as if continuing to prepare for the future as the country has done for 200 years is futile.   There will be no return to America or the world.  The time is here to recognize the moment.  Embrace your family every single day. We are conditioned to see the future as way out there. It sounds alarmist, sensational, like panic even silly.  There is no coming world peace.  There is the truth that Jesus will never allow Israel to fall. The United States may be destroyed, but not the Jews.  The signs are everywhere.  Not that the sky is falling, but that the heavens will soon open and all will see the King coming to recapture, redeem, and restore His Kingdom and His people.  Here it comes.

I am not writing to win a political debate.  This is about the King desiring all of us to be ready.  This is the hour to share with love and compassion the truth that Jesus is the only hope for mankind. Look to the heavens, for there is our salvation.

Trump Represents Truth

At the urging of my dear friend Jim Whitmer, who left this broken world to be with The King last summer, I started writing in July of 2010.  Jim said to me back then, “Bill, this is the new platform to share your beliefs and ideas with others.  You should try it.”

Jim was right and I love writing about what is near to my heart and sharing it.  The writing is the key.  it is therapeutic.  It strengthens my faith.  As for a platform, if it validates what others believe then I hope readers are encouraged.

I have written several times over the last four years about the similarities between the pathway of Donald Trump and the story line of Jesus.   Look at the common theme. An outsider emerges on the scene challenging the status quo.  Those in power or control despise the very idea.  As time advances, the outsider gains a large faithful following.  He threatens the very existence of the system.  After trying several times to eliminate him the elites use all means necessary to discredit and eliminate the threat. 

Well the endgame has been achieved.  Through a whole coordinated effort on the part of the powerful elites, the threat has been removed.  It appears that without any obstacles those who crave and demand power and control are now firmly in place and here is where they desire to take the country.

-Total Gender Confusion.  Men can be women, women can be men…just say so.

-Sex with whomever, wherever, whenever…don’t question

-Suppression of religious freedom…Christians specifically

-Infusion and support of outsiders

-Deference to groups advocating for violence and rebellion 

-Drugs legalized to free the users to ignore reality

-Elimination of future human beings in the name of personal autonomy

-Confiscation of capital to establish and maintain control

-Suppression of those who speaks out against the ideas of those in control

-Elimination of the history and legacy of truth

-Systematic restructuring of the levers of power and control

-Communism is Socialism with a gun

Trump like Jesus represented everything that threatened the status quo’s desire for power. From the very beginning of their missions Jesus and Trump spoke directly to the people where life and reality reside.  When their popularity surged out of control, the threats had to be eliminated at all costs. In Jesus case death. 

In every civilization there must be laws.  Yesterday demonstrated that clearly.  You cannot just break in and damage property or hurt others because you don’t get your way even if you believe you are right.  We have embraced that reality for 400 years.  For the last 100 years the country has incrementally allowed those with very different ideas a stronghold in the culture and now the seats of power.  Using the system, they have indoctrinated the masses, infiltrated the power positions and replaced one set of elites with another. Game over.  Trumps gone.  But like Jesus the followers will not be eliminated nor the truth that evil will never triumph.  Jesus stomped on the head of Satan and Satan’s end is nearing.  Trump’s gone but the truth he may unwillingly have represented will go on.  Truth will aways be the standard, the law, the reality no matter how or who attempts to remove it or pretend it doesn’t exist. The truth is Jesus. He said it himself, “I am the way the TRUTH and the life.”  

Jesus will return.  Those words will raise the ire of every truth denier.  The idea that one day all will surrender to His authority will drive the hatred, the suppression, and the evil of those in charge to another level.  We may even see the resurrection of Emperor Nero.

Like many of my fellow followers of Jesus of Nazareth we do not have big platforms, we do not possess positions of power, we follow obediently the words of the master to speak kindness, to help those in need, and those that are broken.  We do it without the desire for recognition and acclaim.  We do it because that is what the Master asked us to do.  There are millions of us in this country and many more millions around the world.  I pray and hope for men like Peter and Paul that have the platforms, rise up to speak not of resistance or power, but truth.  It may mean imprisonment, or life itself.  It doesn’t matter.  We walk with the ultimate power of the universe.  We follow the one who conquered death and promised we will as well.  The country we knew is fading away, it is not coming back.  Doesn’t matter.  Jesus is restoring, redeeming, renewing everyday not in the media or worldwide stage but in the hearts of those that surrender their rebellious wills to grasp the free gift The King offers to all. The ultimate freedom.

Jesus will return us to His original design,  It will take courage on our parts here and now, heartache, pain, even death.  Be of good cheer we will never lose.

If you are a member of the older generation like me, you recall that in professional sports there was a time when the umpire, referee, judge of any sport was the final authority.  The umpire called the balls and strikes, the referee said it was a  fumble or not.  The linesman determined if a tennis ball was in or out.  Games and matches were determined by the call.  Once in a while, there was a dispute between the combatants as to the legitimacy of an official’s call.  Many of the calls were insignificant because they did not determine the outcome of the game.  However, there were those moments when the game was on the line and the call one way or the other determined the winner or loser.  When the call was made there was an uproar by the team or individual that lost snd jubilation for the winner.  Feelings were hurt, anger even emerged.   For one side it was just not fair.  No-one should have to lose because of an error in judgement.  Fairness trumps everything.  It is the American way.

In 1963 Instant Replay was introduced to the sports world.  It changed the idea of fairness.  The legitimacy of a call could be challenged and the truth would be known and Fairness, the absolute measure would be final.  From 1963 technology advanced and the professional sports world moved to make it a integral part of the contests.  The NFL was the first in 1986, followed by the NHL in 1991, the NBA in 2002, and Wimbledon in 2006.

Instant replay even made its way into golf. Instant replay doesn’t just tell the story. As Tiger Woods knows, it can become part of the story. A phone call from a TV viewer, spurred on by instant replay, changed the course of Woods’ 2013 Masters tournament.

In the second round, Woods was forced to take a drop on the par-5 15th hole after his shot caromed off the flagstick and into the water. At his home in Florida, Champions Tour golfer David Eger rewound his DVR and noticed Woods had improperly dropped the ball about 3 feet behind his original divot.

Eger called a Masters official and Woods was eventually penalized two strokes, dropping him from three strokes out of the lead to five back. He never got back into contention.

It comes down to this. “There is not a sports official around who wants to leave a field, court or rink thinking they didn’t get it right. If you give them a tool that allows them to get it right, that’s what they want. It’s about getting it right, and the expectations are higher about getting it right than back in the old days before we had the technology.” (1)

Now we are on the goal line of an election.  There is mass confusion in the country because there is a challenge as to whether the call was right.  The impact is much greater than a World Series Title, or Super Bowl victory.  The well being of an entire nation rests on the call.  

Its about Fairness.  When it appears that something is just not quite right every person wants fairness in the end despite the outcome.  The team has challenged the ruling on the field.  Then after further review the call is determined right or wrong.  One side is disappointed and one side is thrilled.  Then we go back to the game.  The enduring truth is that we tried the best we could to get it right because that is the fair thing to do, the right thing to do.  We have always agreed.

So what happens now with this election?  There is a challenge of the call.  Do we have instant replay available to review the play?  Will we use the tools we have in place to make sure we get it right?  It has worked rather well in our sports world.  I hope we are advanced enough to apply it to a call that means a whole lot more for all of us.  At the moment, it doesn’t appear that fairness matters.

I wrote on June 17, 2017 that the extreme hatred for Donald Trump was not actually directed at him but at what he represents. Hate Trump…Hate You…The statement and entry elicited the most responses I have ever received.  I don’t get too many.  Three years later the hatred has escalated.  Every moment of every day there is a systematic campaign both verbally and with physical violence to overthrow the status quo.  It’s not TRUMP.  He is the stand in for the symbol of absolute truth.  If he is elected in November, this hatred will not cease.  The violence will not quell.  If he is not elected, the hatred will not cease, the violence not quell. It is not Trump they are after.  It is absolute truth and the followers of absolute truth are next. The growing suppression of churches and religious freedom is not a fallacy.

The hatred is not isolated to the United States.  Hatred is worldwide.  Much of it is directed toward the little country of Israel. What stands between the world and the desire to destroy Israel?   Simple like Trump, Israel mirrors Absolute Truth.  To be free to rule the world the very idea that there is something beyond man that controls the universe must be destroyed.  As long as the United States exists as the most powerful nation on the planet, and  is tied to Israel,  Israel will be saved from attempted destruction.

The Chinese are emerging very quickly.  Good chance they started the virus.  They have been successfully spying on the world for decades.  They have enticed the United States to enter their lair with the promise of great financial wealth.  They declare that they have the world’s best interest in mind.  But in their way of world domination and the destruction of Israel stands one obstacle, the United States and absolute truth.  Trump just happens to be in the White House presently.  If he is reelected the hatred will escalate.  If someone else is elected the hatred will escalate.  The world is not going to stop hating Israel.  To eliminate Israel the United States must be removed.

For over 100 years this nation’s treasured values has been dismantled systematically through the education system.  The Founding principle of the nation that all men are created equal by God’ has been replaced with personal rights and feelings.  The Chinese and the world have been given the gift they could never have manufactured, self-destruction.  The Chinese are impatient as are the detractors in this country.  Both have accelerated  the pace toward either destruction or takeover.

When the United States falls, the door will be open to finally destroy the source of Absolute Truth.  The dreaded Jews.  Is there any stopping this?  Will the destruction of the United States and world domination by China bring peace and tranquility to the entire planet?  Will the destruction of Israel finally allow the world to approach Utopia?  Of course not.  What it will do is usher in the reign of the Kingdom of Jesus.  Israel will never be destroyed.  Jesus promised his return to establish a Kingdom of glory.  Just writing these words I can hear the laughter, the mocking and the ridicule of the very idea by those committed to secularism. Jesus warned us of this time when he said,  “If you think they hated me, just wait, they will hate you even more”.

It is going to require courage.  Lots of courage and it may be soon.  Followers, don’t lose heart.  Don’t be afraid.  The King is coming.

The family will never be replaced…

The Family will NEVER be replaced

                                1920                                                                 2020

Vladimir Lennin and Communist Revolution      Leftists, BLM, Antifa,  Democrats

                                               Three Foundational Objectives

  1. Remove All Religion and Histor             1. Remove Religion and History
  2. Legalize Divorce and Abortion               2. Abortion -Pro-Choice  No fault divorce
  3. State Public Schools run by state            3. Public schools run by state

Lenin and the Communists accomplished their foundation objectives in a very short period of time.  It has taken a little longer in the United States.  In the U.S. evolution was integrated into the school system in the 1920s.  Abortion became legal in 1973.  The American public schools became the factory of the ideas of John Dewey. the Frankfurt school. and many Marxist followers.100 years of indoctrinating children into the Marxist/Socialist system of thought has taken a toll. 

This has been all about replacing the family.  Years before Marx put his ideas in writing there were forces laying the groundwork to destroy the institution that holds any society together, one man one woman committed as a bond for life with the charge of raising responsible citizens that can protect and carry on the societies well being.  That idea has been the standard for thousands of years and cultures. It is an absolute.  It is a proven success. If you want to change an entire culture you must remove the family unit.  It IS the foundation of any culture.

The communists worldwide have succeeded for the moment in damaging the family unit as the sole provider of cultural success and continuity.   Their foundational objectives explain for us here in the home of the free the riots (protests), the rebellion, the cry for change.  The 100 years of influence has damaged the family deeply.  But I believe there is GOOD news.  Hope in fact.

This is a small movement in a country of 330 million people. The majority of people in this country know at the core that the family is where there is hope.  Father and Mother living together for life create a bond, a unit, a safe place.  Every family struggles, there are family disasters but the model is still the model.  It is the answer for every culture, tribe, and people. It will take a long time and a lot of surrendering to return to the best choice for keeping this country stable.  And I admit, at the moment it doesn’t look promising. So many confusing ideas have stolen the acceptance of the true model. 

Hold your ground.  Cherish your family at whatever stage you are in the journey.  Young parents embrace the blessing you have been given to raise kids that will be productive worthy citizens.  Older parents, support and encourage your kids to keep the faith.  At the end of the road it will bring joy, affirm value, and preserve the future.
