Cower Not From Floaters

Are you afraid of the dark? Most of us as children were. But then we grew up and realized that there is nothing to be afraid of. So how is this proven to us as children?  Usually we, or someone else, turns on a light! And then what do we see? We see there was nothing there to be afraid of. Too many good people live in darkness and cower from its despotism. Like we’ve seen in the media over the past week. But  darkness can have no power over light, even the most faint. In today’s dark politically correct society the darkness is so prevalent that most tremble in fear of going against it or even surrender to it, and then go as far as defending it.

Darkness can be very irritating. For example, this week I noticed something in my eye that was a dark speck. When I tried to focus  I couldn’t help but see this little dark spec. I went to the eye doctor and he says it’s a floater. A myodesopsia or a shadow that’s cast on the retina. Very irritating but permanent.  He said it becomes more obvious in the light, the brighter the light the more obvious the dark spec in my eye will be.

Now this is a very good physical illustration of a spiritual truth in America these days. When the light is broadcast through American Christians’ outspoken opinions, the darkness is exposed. A case in point is the recent Chick-Fil-A furor. All the Christian CEO of this company did was make a public statement that he believed in traditional marriage. This action, (like a brightly lit room would cause my floater to be more apparent), exposed the darkness in our society as it was manifested over the top in the media that supports it.

Ephesians 5: 8-14 is a good illustration of this fact.

 God’s light produces every kind of goodness, right living, and truth. 10 Try to learn what pleases the Lord. 11 Have no part in the things that people in darkness do, which produce nothing good. Instead, tell everyone how wrong those things are. 12 Actually, it is shameful to even talk about the things those people do in secret. 13 But the light makes clear how wrong those things are. 14 Yes, everything is made clear by the light.

Verse 14 continues with  a statement that I’ve taken some liberty with:

“Wake up America you who are sleeping! Rise from spiritual darkness, and Christ will shine on you.”

In the past, before I became a Christian American, I was full of darkness, but now I am full of light in the Lord Jesus Christ. So, in verse eleven above, A Christian American’s Opinion will have no part in the things that people in darkness do, which produce nothing good. Instead, we tell everyone how wrong those things are. (Ephesians 5:11 paraphrased)

So simply  turn on the light and expose the darkness for what they are and Jesus Christ will shine on you.

This is our hope for America. Cower not from floaters.



Out and Out-liars

What is an Outlier? A person or thing situated away or detached from the main body or system.

These days our Main Stream Media does not stand out as detached from the system. They are all complicit with the liberal democrat politicians and are moving in the opposite direction of a true outlier. So I’m calling them Out-liars instead, and for good reason.

Gallup Polls show that most Americans do not have confidence in the main stream media “to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly”. In 2011 a 60% majority reported a perception of media bias, with 47% saying mass media was too liberal, 13% too conservative. According to Gallup, in every year since 2002 more Americans think the media show liberal bias than think the media show conservative bias. Wikipedia

EXAMPLE: Media Manipulation. Turning the Victim into the Aggressor

Yesterday, while at my local pharmacy, I happened to catch CNN on the TV monitor in the waiting room. The show was Wolf Blitzer‘s Situation room. He was interviewing CNN political contributors Mary Matalin along with Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons. The debate was mostly about which campaign was raising the most money. The conclusion was  that Romney was winning. Since this didn’t sit well with the lefties they shifted the topic to what they described as Romney’s war on women. (Romney’s war on women? Jeeezzzz)

But before they made a full turn into this illogical topic I heard the most blatant admission to media bias I have ever heard and it came from Jamal Simmons the Democratic strategist and defended by Blitzer (through his silence) when he said, and I am quoting from the transcripts:

 SIMMONS: If they (the democrats) get outspent in cash, at the end of this campaign, it’s going to put them in a bad spot when it comes time to communicate with the voters. The one good spot though is in a presidential race, media like this, CNN, all the television networks. All of the newspapers, they’ll have a much bigger impact (for the democrats and Obama) than campaign advertisement. So that maybe the only silver lining here, but Democrats have got to raise more money.”

Next on the show we get a full  illustration of the bias and manipulation!

BLITZER: They certainly do if they’re going to compete. Three months to go exactly, Mary. You know, look at the new ad that the Obama campaign just put out going after Mitt Romney on the issue of women. Listen to this. (BEGIN CLIP OF ANTI ROMNEY AD see TRANSCRIPT)

The show continues with a full anti-Romney ad, free of charge from CNN! No anti-Obama ad from the Romney side (of course) to balance things out.

Now this show is at the 4-6pm news hour. It’s a NEWS network that is biased toward the political/spiritual left  and is broadcast at all the airports, restaurants, bars and most public places in prime time,and biased  with impunity! I feel like I’m in the move “They Live” and the only person in the room with the special sun glasses that allows me to see the truth about them!

So take a stand and be vocal to all your friends and neighbors. You know, the decent folks in our lives that believe in fair play. Maybe if enough of us demand a stop to the liberal biased monopoly in the most powerful industry on the planet we just might get something done. But be careful, don’t let anyone dare try and compare their liberal onslaught to AM radio as an example of balance, how ridiculous. Like, who except radical right-wing conservatives like me or someone stuck in 1950,listens to AM radio. I bet most people don’t think AM radio is  even around anymore. No, its the Out and Out-Liars on TV that are influencing impressionable people these days. DON’T BE FOOLED!!!!

Put your special glasses on!


A Vacation Package Chapter 10

Our journey picked up after we dried off. We drove until dark. He apparently knew exactly where we were headed, though this was new territory for me. I just remember a lot of trees and winding roads. We eventually made it to a parking area that was only lit by the car’s headlights. There was a sign posted, “north ridge 9100 ft.” We shined the car lights over to an area around 150 feet from where we parked. There was a split-rail fence and a ledge that appeared wide enough to camp on.

My driver grabbed his stuff from the trunk including a small flashlight and we began to walk. The ledge overlooked nothing that could be seen from our vantage point but pitch black on a moonless night. There was an eerie cavernous dirge of a wind blowing through what seemed to be pine trees located near the precipice of the abyss. The ledge that we laid our sleeping bags on was slanted oh so slightly but comfortable enough. This was a ghostly feeling. The wind and the dark and the cold and also the unknown…what was out there? Why was there such a deep howling like I had never heard? The stars were bright but not enough to light anything more than the bit of black around them.

The wind was continuous, but we eventually drifted off to sleep. I slept well, considering the conditions, a light sleep though. The events that followed were normal at first but eventually became most incredible. My eyes peaked from behind my lids as the sun began to rise. The wind was still whistling through the pines, though not with as much a lamentation as the night before. The ever so faint sign of the dawn reflecting against what seemed to be something faintly orange got my keen attention. I couldn’t quite make out what I was beginning to see; but it became ever so clear in an instant. As the sun continued to rise behind me the reflection of a vast chasm wall continued to grow wider and deeper every second. Oranges, yellows and reds of every shade were being unveiled, thousands of feet above the canyon floor. I was totally mesmerized, my eyes glued to its magnificence, astounded beyond any wonder I had ever, ever experienced. The Grand Canyon was indeed grand, grander than I could have ever imagined. I was awestruck. I can only strain for the words to paint such an incredible scene. It was bigger than life itself.

This is an excerpt from my new book Seeking God, Searching for a Daughter

The  true story or my 20,000 mile trek by  faith and thumb across America in search of my girlfriend who I believed was carrying my yet to be born daughter Trinity.

A Christian American’s Redress

So the question comes up all the time, “how can I be a Christian and resist the government’s authority?” Doesn’t Paul the apostle make it very clear that we are to submit to governing authorities? Romans 13:1-7. I will try never to take the word of God out of context. Paul was speaking very clearly about government authority in general and their purpose to restrain evil. I believe Paul (and of course the Holy Spirit) is directly referring to the Executive Branches of Government i.e.”he does not bear the sword in vain”. In the United States of America we have a constitution that describes the authority of the government and responsibility of its citizens.  Our government’s constitution preamble states:  We the People of the United States in order to form   a more perfect union…

Our Declaration of Independence states:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government.

Americans have a history of “self governance.”  Abraham Lincoln acknowledged this in the Gettysburg Address. “…that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”.

We are a government “of the people”, “by the people” and “for the people” as well as a nation under God. So as citizens of this great country we have a Biblical responsibility to follow its laws that we, through our republican form of government created but also have a responsibility and a right to alter or abolish it as an unalienable right if it moves beyond its constitutional limits.

So how can I do this and remain within my scriptural boundaries? Well if we read the “Bill of Rights” we can read in 1st 9th and 10th amendments to the United States Constitution which allow us the freedom and responsibility of  demanding our rights from our government through redress. If our rights are being violated we have a Christian obligation to resist. Not only for our sakes but for the sake of our children and other Americans whose rights afforded them by our Constitution and laws are being violated.

So when a fellow Christian brother or sister rebukes your outspoken position using Romans saying it is God’s will to submit to our government, let them know you are, and then  that you expect them to get off their couch and stand up for our country as well…In the name of  our founding fathers, the constitution and your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Flesh and Blood

For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood (contending with only physical opponents), but against the despotisms, against the powers, against (the master spirits who are) the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. Ephesians 6:12 (AMP)

OK…put up your dukes. That was the challenge I remember back in the “old” days. The days when Godly correctness ruled our society and before political correctness ran amuck. Back in the days when boys became men by standing against their aggressor or the playground  bully. Fighting used to be considered socially acceptable  behavior as a gauntlet to manhood. Back in Passaic New Jersey, a small industrial town 15 minutes from New York City, fighting was a way of life but through no choice of my own. Some days I would have to literally fight my way down the block to get to my paper route. And I did not like it. I was afraid of fighting. So why did all the bullies, and there were many, always pick on me? I guess now it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I never ran or backed down from a fight. I had my honor, more that a bloody nose, to protect.

Not so much anymore. Our current left of center society wants nothing more but to negotiate and compromise with the bullies so everyone will like them. But who are the real bullies we’re fighting these days? The Bible says it’s “the world rulers of this present darknes, against the spiritual forces of wickedness”. So if you believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and have a passion to defend yourself against the bullies of this age, you must take the apostle Paul seriously. If a person or politician is not for Jesus Christ and His ways, he is against Him. And if he is against Him he is on the side of spiritual wickedness. Therefore, are we to back down from the bullies, seek compromise or take a stand against them?

Many will defend compromise and say we only want a fair or “balanced” amount of Jesus. I say there can be no compromise. It is either all or none of Him. Love the person but seek no compromise with the rulers of this present darkness that control them.

If you value your honor and character, more than a bloody nose, or better yet, if you love Christ more than life itself, there is only one answer. Take on the whole armor of Christ and put up your dukes.

Have a Christ filled Sunday,


Surreal Saturday

It’s a great morning in sunny south florida. I will take a short break from the olympics and spend some quality time enjoying our great outdoors. We have to wash Booda our English Bulldog and maybe take a walk to the Peace River. Here’s a picture of what that might look like.  Jan’s an animal rehabber and we get several litters of raccoons every year. This is probably DJ our foot sucker (see ).

I’ve already started my day on Facebook with an attack by an angry bitter homosexual who thinks Christianity was no better than Islam. He had some historical examples of Church Government brutality that were indisputable. All I could do was share the truth.

Jesus Christ is God..the only God. His Love for me and you led him to be brutally beat and nailed on a cross for our sin so we could have life, eternal life. That’s the bottom line. Any other religion or church teaching is man’s pride or erroneous interpretation of God’s will for us and it’s wrong. I will not pander to your mockery due to your bitterness towards the actions of others. Many people have done things in the name of Christianity with disregard for Christ and his teachings. But that doesn’t diminish His truth and teachings. If I hurt someone in your name I don’t think you would believe you were responsible. In the same way give Jesus Christ a chance based on His own merit. Take the time to read the New Testament and receive His gift of eternal life. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are we saved through faith, and not of ourselves, it is the GIFT of God, not of works lest any man can boast.

Have a Surreal Saturday Ya’ll!!!


Walk to the Peace River

Here’s our brood…at least part.

This speaks for itself

This speaks for itself

All disestablishmentarians rise!

Hello world! Disestablishmentarians Rise!

The 2008 elections have emboldened to many un-American and un-Christian forces in our great nation. Over the past 3 years I have wrung my hands or beat the steering wheel in my car from frustration with the 4th estate. So now in 2012, having turned to Facebook and Twitter, I still find myself wanting. Wanting to communicate  the truth that’s not being told and my thoughts on the conspiracy (and yes, I said conspiracy)  between the main stream media (MSM) and the Federal Government of the United States of America.We need an uprising against the MSM…the government PC media must go. They are un-american anti-Christian, pro-islam pro-deviancy racist bigots hiding behind the 1st Amendment calling themselves “News”.. The conspiracy must be disestablished. The Media today is the State religion so like the Church of England and the Crown its time for us to be described as disestablishmentarians. Welcome to my Blog, hope so see you here often!
