Will You Let God Set You Free!?

The Power to Break the Chain of Lies so you can be FREE“ Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” Gal. 4:16! This page belongs to Minister Clarence F. Sargent

Are You Ashamed Of Jesus? The Truth Might Surprise You!

Romans 1:16 states emphatically that a true Christian is NOT to be ashamed of the power of God revealed in our lives. But…..really how many of us actually live conscious of that fact? I’d bet good money that we don’t even think about the fact we live like we are ashamed every day, not willingly so much as selectively. We avoid situations that place us in the way of telling others about our savior before we actually get into them thus telling ourselves it wasn’t God’s will to speak to them. We justify simple moves to avoid the bigger issue of  spreading the Gospel of power.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

The power of God is ONLY REVEALED THROUGH US WHEN WE SPEAK ABOUT JESUS AND HIS GOSPEL. Not only that but the righteousness we THINK we have in Christ is directly tied to the preaching of that same Gospel releasing freedom into our lives, so if we become ashamed of that power in ANY WAY we by extension deny God’s power.

Romans 1:17  For therein (In the power of God) is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. “

Now…think about this very carefully, BOTH the righteousness and the power of the Gospel to save us from sin, are tied to NOT BEING ASHAMED of it. Doesn’t that indicate clearly that the majority of so-called salvation’s are hinging upon a proper understanding of this concept?

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;…”

 What is “Holding the Truth” in an unrighteous way? Could it possibly mean THINK YOURSELF to be saved while AT THE SAME TIME BEING ashamed of the Gospel. The two are oxymoron’s, one cannot be saved and ashamed according to scripture, they are mutually exclusive. Could this be the reason most religious people are deceived? Could it be the reason religions create false premises concerning salvation’s rules to cover for this obvious infraction against God?

The just shall live by faith and in order to live by faith,…God’s version of faith in Hebrews 11:1 you must not be ashamed of Gospel because it counter acts what true faith is! True faith cannot be revealed as the overcoming power it is, if you are constantly countering it’s power in you through your personal embarrassment of what it represents. Religious people only believe what their church tells them to believe, they are in effect trained to understand only a limited experience. Their faith is NOT BIBLICAL and thus not able to overcome the world system around them, which is why man-made religions cannot save us!

 Hebrews 11:1    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

True biblical faith CONTAINS certain ingredients that average everyday faith does not, it has substance and evidence contained within it ready to be released through our lives as we believe, that produces everything religion cannot but being ashamed countermands it’s effect. This is called being double minded in scripture.

James 4:8  
 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts, ye double minded. “

We can CURE our double mindedness by simply getting as close to God as we can, and as far from man-made ideas as possible. We then create an atmosphere where pure biblical faith can grow, sprout and reproduce itself in our lives. This is the true Christian faith in action not the fake religious version we all go to church and see. True Christianity is nothing like we see today, of course some things are but that is how we become deceived, we think we are serving God but all the while we are simply serving our own selfish needs, masking them over with religious duties.

Religion is the single most reliable source of Atheism in the world, why? Because it is a never ending well of excuses why God cannot be real. Religion gives lip service to everything real making it powerless before the world. Religion takes everything the bible says and diminishes it’s viable power through traditions created in the minds of mere men, totally powerless traditions!

Who can look at scriptures presentation of the power of God and think for even a second that Christianity as we witness before us is scriptural? What kind of deception is at work to make us excuse our weak kneed version of faith as the real faith of our fathers? How can we read of Jesus’ life in the Gospels, his healing of the sick, casting out of dark spirits, his renewing of the insane minds around him and think…..”Yeah…that’s the kind of power my religion emits around me!”

James 5:19-20  

 “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death,
and shall hide a multitude of sins.” 

Man’s religion is our greatest err from the truth we could have ever committed against God, we have settled for demonic counterfeits rather than biblical truth. We have replaced his power for a powerless pile of dogmas. Do we really think God could be pleased with our lack of power?

 John 4:13-14


“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this
water (The water of normal mortal life.) shall thirst again: 

 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I

shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be
in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Eternal life means just that, it is life that is SELF-REPLICATING, UNABLE TO DIE not simply unwilling to as the natural life of man is. This water from the well of God himself cannot be overcome, cannot be polluted by the world’s ways, cannot be what religion wants it to become…..weak and unobtrusive into the affairs of men!

God has provided us with a power so great that it’s painful to watch how the church has thrown away that power to BLEND IN WITH THE WORLD it’s supposed to be saving from it’s sin. Do we really believe that God will put up with us as mere shadows of what we are supposed to be?

John 6:53-58

 “Then
“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life
in you.  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal
life; and I will raise him up at the last day.   For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 
 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my
blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
 As the living Father hath sent me, and I

live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.  This is
that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and
are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.”

The Church’s power did not end in the forth century it was merely put to sleep by religious unbelief and only awakened periodically over the centuries in revivals that God caused to awaken his bride to be. But for us to believe we are his church we must believe his word to us, his true description of his body. That and that alone is our reflection not the weak religions ideas of what the church is! Human beings have a bad habit of accepting the easiest solution to a problem instead of digging for truth as 04-05-14 - 1God requires of us!

Think about it, would the God of creation really give up all he had to give up just to produce a powerless religion that believes in nothing and accomplishes nothing of import? Would Jesus really want what we know of as the Christian religion to take over the world? Come on people wake up, religion is the poorest excuse for faith and belief that has ever been invented. For heaven’s sake, it’s created more unbelief that all the Atheists combined over the century’s so why do we think for a moment that God is even in our worthless religions?

If we do not obey to the letter what Jesus commands we are not true believers, the truth cannot set you free if your view of it is warped from what it truly is. Truth is not really truth if all it is, is your personal opinion and not God’s word. The Bible is not a book of suggestions it’s a directional instruction for living life as God requires and e do not get a choice on that! Being ashamed of God is not a hard thing to do, it shows itself at every disobedience, every time your opinion trumps God’s direction, every little fear or pandering to the world’s ways creeps in……you are ASHAMED AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED of being ashamed because he gave more than any human being on this planet, past, present and future.

Kenneth Hagin’s Forgotten Warning

 

A warning that I missed from Brother Hagin, it is very refreshing to know he had it right then and it still rings true today!

CBN.com – Charismatic Bible teacher Kenneth Hagin Sr. is considered the father of the so-called prosperity gospel. The folksy, self-trained “Dad Hagin” started a grass-roots movement in Oklahoma that produced a Bible college and a crop of famous preachers including Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Charles Capps, Jesse DuPlantis, Creflo Dollar and dozens of others—all of whom teach that Christians who give generously should expect financial rewards on this side of heaven.

Hagin taught that God was not glorified by poverty and that preachers do not have to be poor. But before he died in 2003 and left his Rhema Bible Training Center in the hands of his son, Kenneth Hagin Jr., he summoned many of his colleagues to Tulsa to rebuke them for distorting his message. He was not happy that some of his followers were manipulating the Bible to support what he viewed as greed and selfish indulgence.

Those who were close to Hagin Sr. say he was passionate about correcting these abuses before he died. In fact, he wrote a brutally honest book to address his concerns.

The Midas Touch was published in 2000, a year after the infamous Tulsa meeting.

Many Word-Faith ministers ignored the book. But in light of the recent controversy over prosperity doctrines, it might be a good idea to dust it off and read it again.

Here are a few of the points Hagin made in The Midas Touch:

1. Financial prosperity is not a sign of God’s blessing. Hagin wrote: “If wealth alone were a sign of spirituality, then drug traffickers and crime bosses would be spiritual giants. Material wealth can be connected to the blessings of God or it can be totally disconnected from the blessings of God.”

2. People should never give in order to get. Hagin was critical of those who “try to make the offering plate some kind of heavenly vending machine.” He denounced those who link giving to getting, especially those who give cars to get new cars or who give suits to get new suits. He wrote: “There is no spiritual formula to sow a Ford and reap a Mercedes.”

3. It is not biblical to “name your seed” in an offering. Hagin was horrified by this practice, which was popularized in faith conferences during the 1980s. Faith preachers sometimes tell donors that when they give in an offering they should claim a specific benefit to get a blessing in return. Hagin rejected this idea and said that focusing on what you are going to receive “corrupts the very attitude of our giving nature.”

4. The “hundredfold return” is not a biblical concept. Hagin did the math and figured out that if this bizarre notion were true, “we would have Christians walking around with not billions or trillions of dollars, but quadrillions of dollars!” He rejected the popular teaching that a believer should claim a specific monetary payback rate.

to those who give in certain offerings. He wrote in The Midas Touch”

(Many evangelists who appear on Christian television today use this bogus claim. Usually they insist that the miraculous debt cancellation will occur only if a person “gives right now,” as if the anointing for this miracle suddenly evaporates after the prime time viewing hour. This manipulative claim is more akin to witchcraft than Christian belief.)

Hagin condemned other hair-brained gimmicks designed to trick audiences into emptying their wallets. He was especially incensed when a preacher told his radio listeners that he would take their prayer requests to Jesus’ empty tomb in Jerusalem and pray over them there—if donors included a special love gift. “What that radio preacher really wanted was more people to send in offerings,” Hagin wrote.

Thanks to the recent resurgence in bizarre donation schemes promoted by American charismatics, the prosperity gospel is back under the nation’s microscope. It’s time to revisit Hagin’s concerns and find a biblical balance.

Hagin told his followers: “Overemphasizing or adding to what the Bible actually teaches invariably does more harm than good.”

If the man who pioneered the modern concept of biblical prosperity blew the whistle on his own movement, wouldn’t it make sense for us to listen to his admonition?

This article by J. Lee Grady of Charisma Magazine will no doubt be doing the rounds but it is worth reprinting in a day when there is a lot of unquestioned practises around, especially to do with giving.

Paul – Apostle or Fraud (Part 13)

This post is very important to the life and growth of the church. I have been dealing with friends on Sodahead.com that have been deceived by groups of Jewish Christians who LITERALY HATE the Apostle Paul and all he wrote, so it’s very important for every believer to immerse themselves in the New Testament to protect themselves from the deception of those who are uninformed or misinformed!

Faith & Self Defense

Saint PaulThe question is not frivolous or trivial: was Paul an Apostle of Jesus Christ or a fraud? We’ve seen from the history of the early Church in Luke’s second letter to Theophilus (known to us as the Book of Acts) that Jesus Christ personally called Paul to be an apostle (Acts 9) and that the Holy Spirit called Paul to open the door of faith to the Gentiles (Acts 13).

About half of the Book of Acts references Paul’s ministry to Jews and Gentiles, and Paul wrote almost half of the New Testament. However, even with that overwhelming evidence, many people still refuse to believe that Paul was an apostle and go as far as to call him a fraud. In calling Paul a fraud they also call his writings fraudulent, which is a major issue for Christians. Most of the Paul-challengers I’ve heard from also believe 2 Peter is fraudulent, partially because the letter…

My Debate with an Atheist on Sodahead- PART 3

MY ATHEIST FRIEND:
 
“prove this god exists without any biblical references or any writings by others! 

go ahead. i will be waiting.

and again with the insults from a fake minister.”
******************************************************
MY RESPONSE:
 
 
You don’t understand the Laws of evidence do you?

You cannot prove something spiritual to a NON spiritual mind, What I can do is present proof from existing evidences in nature and history that his existence is indeed possible, the rest is based upon ‘knowledgeable understanding’ through faith as it should be. YOU REFUSE TO SEE IT SO HOW IS THAT MY FAULT EXACTLY?

Atheists created an impossible idea and called it PROOF, because they know the same thing, proof is in the eyes of the beholder and anything can be denied so all you have to do is deny everything without explanation and the Christian is left with nothing!

The truth though is the opposite, the PROOF is there and ABSOLUTE, it never changes, it never goes away, its your understanding of it that changes and morphs not the evidence of God. You simply change the rules of interpretation of the evidence to suite you any time it gets close…BUT ITS STILL THERE NONETHELESS!

The ONLY reason the Bible bothers Atheists is because the witness to truth cannot be refuted, therefore its easier to eliminate the evidence than to deal with it. They would rather take their chances with the secondary proof….Nature, History, and Science because they can confuse the ignorant and create skepticism.

It is you who must PROVE HE DOESN’T EXIST since the evidence from smallest to greatest indicates he is indeed possible! I will be waiting as I have for over 30 years now!

We know that we exist because . We are irrefutable evidence that intelligent life exists in the universe, give or take a few of us.

So, is it really that much of a stretch to think that there might be intelligent life capable of creating a universe with form, structure and physical laws that always seem to remain constant? Just as its not a stretch to think that a Car that’s designed might just have a designer.

The fact that we live in a universe with reliable physical laws is a bit ironic, don’t you think? Considering that many scientists believe the universe evolved by random processes that had no intelligence of their own.

How could INTELLIGENCE come from nothing colliding with nothing over millions of years? Life comes from life, that’s simple science but you think that life came from non-life…who’s got more faith? Me or you?

To prove the existence of a higher power, we can begin by assuming there is no higher power.

What kind of universe would we have?

A random one, of course. Everything would happen without a purpose.

Nothing could be predicted; nothing could be relied on.

Mathematics and science would have no value because nothing could be reliably measured or have regularity, that’s what random means and without God everything in life if life could finally come together right would be a mixed up puzzle WITHOUT A SET PURPOSE.

A belief that there are NO ABSOLUTES only leads to disorder [Chaos] not order therefore Evolution cannot be true simply because absolutes are not allowed, the universe is FINE TUNED and even its chaotic elements obey certain order. LAWS are proof absolutes exist, evolution obeys PHYSICAL LAWS so it must have absolutes to function though it denies them outright!

And please, stop with the nonsense about insults, you OF ALL PEOPLE cannot talk, you trample peoples beliefs and feelings with each response here and then cry when your told your ignorant about something, that only means you don’t know as much as you think you know, NOT that your stupid or dumb! I stated before that you ARE smarter than your acting on here, I know that’s true!

We do what? I didn’t know you existed before you opened YOUR TEXT to insult my beliefs, so I guess I can use that same excuse on why I find Atheism repulsive?

Your religion is just as bad as all religion so stop pretending to be pure apart from religion, your in the same ‘UNHOLY BED’ with the hypocrites you hate!

ITS THE LAW OF THE LAND, if you deny it, well how can you, you have become your enemy….now what?

Atheism Is Protected As a Religion, says Court.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/603…

HERE’S GREAT PROOF THAT ITS A RELIGION:
http://debunkingatheists.blog…

I know, I know, you have heard it all before.

I read a blog post that spelled it out pretty well, enough to re post it. Kevin Childs is a DJ at The Rock (Rockc3.com) and he did a post discussing how Atheists belong to a religion.

We, as rational individuals, all know its true except the atheists themselves. When, and only when, they understand that they indeed belong to a religion, then we can get down as to who holds the most accurate and truthful religion out there.

For Atheists to attempt to claim “neutrality”, in reference to God, is a complete cop out and disingenuous intellectually. They have indeed picked a side. They choose their religion based on what they believe is evidential to their presuppositions.

Denying what they believe, and hold as truth, may be an easier pill for them to swallow but they are only attempting to deceive themselves.

Childs makes the case:

Atheism is a religion.

Atheism IS a religion. I know that some have made that statement without much evidence. And I know that atheists themselves heatedly deny it.

I’ve heard their rejoinders: If atheism is a religion, then not playing baseball is a sport. Or, atheism is to religion what bald is to hair color. Clever. I guess I don’t blame them for denying it, but denying something doesn’t prove it is not there. (I would advise any atheist readers to re-read the previous sentence until BOTH meanings sink in.)

A religion doesn’t have to posit a god who must be identified or worshiped. Some religions are polytheistic (Hinduism, Mormonism), some monotheistic (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), some non-theistic (Buddhism). I’d say the new atheists and their religion are “anti-theistic.” But their atheism is religious nonetheless.

Consider this:

They have their own worldview.

Materialism (the view that the material world is all there is) is the lens through which atheists view the world. Far from being the open-minded, follow-the-evidence-wherever thinkers they claim to be, they interpret all data ONLY within the very narrow worldview of materialism. They are like a guy wearing dark sunglasses who chides all others for thinking the sun is out.

They have their own orthodoxy.

Orthodoxy is a set of beliefs acceptable to a faith community. Just as there are orthodox Christian beliefs, there is an atheist orthodoxy as well. In brief, it is that EVERYTHING can be explained as the product of unintentional, undirected, purposeless evolution. No truth claim is acceptable if it cannot be subjected to scientific scrutiny.

They have their own brand of apostasy.

Apostasy is to abandon one’s former religious faith. Antony Flew was for many years one of the world’s most prominent atheists. And then he did the unthinkable: he changed his mind. You can imagine the response of the “open-minded, tolerant” New Atheist movement. Flew was vilified.

Richard Dawkins accused Flew of “tergiversation.” It’s a fancy word for apostasy. By their own admission, then, Flew abandoned their “faith.”

They have their own prophets:

Nietzsche, Russell, Feuerbach, Lenin, Marx.

They have their own messiah:

He is, of course, Charles Darwin. Darwin – in their view – drove the definitive stake through the heart of theism by providing a comprehensive explanation of life that never needs God as a cause or explanation. Daniel Dennett has even written a book seeking to define religious faith itself as merely an evolutionary development.

They have their own preachers and evangelists.

And boy, are they “evangelistic.” Dawkins, Dennett, Harris, and Hitchens (Speaking of which, our prayers goes out to Christopher Hitchens in hopes of a speedy recovery for his cancer, we need more time with him Lord) are NOT out to ask that atheism be given respect. They are seeking converts. They are preaching a “gospel” calling for the end of theism.

They have faith. That’s right, faith.

They would have you believe the opposite. Their writings ridicule faith, condemn faith. Harris’s book is called The End of Faith. But theirs is a faith-based enterprise. The existence of God cannot be proven or dis-proven.

To deny it takes faith. Evolution has no explanation for why our universe is orderly, predictable, measurable. In fact (atheistic) evolutionary theory has no rational explanation for why there is such a thing as rational explanation.

There is no accounting for the things they hope you won’t ask:

Why do we have self-awareness?

What makes us conscious?

From what source is there a universal sense of right and wrong?

They just take such unexplained things by … faith.

There are days when evil and suffering are hard to explain, even for the most ardent follower of God. There are questions we cannot answer. There are days when every honest Christian will admit doubt. But we don’t become atheists. It is because our soul JUST KNOWS that God is there. And maybe because atheism is a religion that requires too much untenable faith.

Not only is Atheism a religion, the entire premise is a negative proof fallacy.

bit.ly/AtheistReligion

I posted this [With Credit to the Author] to prove to others that your as phony as any hypocrite you’ve accused because its really sickening how much contradiction there is in your postings.

You see after becoming a Christian after being Atheistic in thought for years, I used to live and let live UNTIL a group of hit and run Atheists wouldn’t let well enough alone on the insulting and moronic comments THEN I decided from that moment on never to let ignorance rule a conversation. I, like most people get SICK of the crappy presentations by those who hate God!

What should bother you is that pic you used looks exactly like every Dr. of Atheism I’ve ever heard speak along with quite a few dumb religious leaders as well, and that’s a lot! Atheism and Religion without relationship offers us nothing in return for our souls, nice trade off!

MY RESPONSE:
 
Part 3- Freedom FROM Sin and INTO New Life!

You TALK BIG but present little proof of ANYTHING, ITS YOUR MENTAL PICTURE OF LIFE AND NOTHING MORE.

I proved it was and is a RELIGION LOGICALLY its not MY BELIEF its the facts presented, but instead of proving it you insult me and my Lord? A religion doesn’t have to believe in a god at all as was stated, you DO BELIEVE IN SOMETHING, Evolution, Survival of the fittest, Mother earth and the Universe are your god because you exalt them as I would God. THAT’S A BELIEF SYSTEM PLAIN AND SIMPLE!

It is impossible to prove that there is no God. Don’t believe me? Let’s take a look at the nature of the statement, “God does not exist.”

Back up for just a minute and think about the difference between positive and negative statements of fact. The difference can be illustrated by a simple example. Suppose there are 10,000 clovers in a field. Person A declares, “There is a four-leaf clover in that field,” while Person B objects, “There are no four-leaf clovers in that field.” Now, how many clovers does each person have to observe and know about in order to be certain that they are correct?

Since Person A must find only one single four-leaf clover in order to be correct, in theory he could prove his statement after observing only one clover, provided that it had four leaves on it. But Person B, in order to know for a fact that she is right, has a lot of work to do! That’s because until all 10,000 clovers have been inspected, there would still be the possibility that among the clovers which remained “unknown” to her was one which boasted a fourth leaf. She could never be certain that she was right until she knew everything there was to know about that field and the clovers it contained.

The same principle holds for statements such as, “There is a God,” and “There is no God,” only this time on a cosmic scale. In order to prove the claim, “There is no God in the universe,” one would have to know everything there is to know about the universe. As long as some body of knowledge remains unknown to anyone making that statement, there will always be the possibility that sufficient evidence for the existence of God is out there, despite the individual’s ignorance of it.

And since no one can seriously claim to know everything, anyone who is honest will admit that they can never prove there isn’t a God. One Christian author put it this way: “Somewhere, in the vast knowledge you haven’t yet discovered, there could be enough evidence to prove that God does exist. . . . If you insist upon disbelief in God, what you must say is, ‘Having the limited knowledge I have at present, I believe that there is no God.'”**

It is the word “believe” in the above quotation which brings us to the assertion made in the title of this article: “Atheism is a faith-based belief system.” To be an atheist, you have to have to rely on belief, not factual knowledge. You could never amass enough knowledge to prove the nonexistence of God, so you must place your faith in the improvable assumption that there is no God. My Christian brothers and sisters, do not ever let an atheist deride you on the basis of your faith in God (as if “faith” were a dirty word!), because atheism is no stranger to the concept of faith, either. Ask your atheist friends what it would take for them to accept God’s existence. Then pray that the Lord will open their spiritual eyes to see the beauty and glory of Jesus Christ, as well as the depravity and hopelessness of their current situation, guilty as they are of sin against a holy and just God. May the Lord grant repentance to those who are strangers to His mercy and grace!

Hey! I gave you a way out a long while back……STOP ANSWERING ME AND I’LL NOT ANSWER BACK. It can’t be all that boring to you or you’d have blocked me a long time ago? Right?

Guess that lack of real knowledge is getting you down? Don’t feel bad we’re all in that boat together, the Atheist just spends their time in the boat ALONE BY CHOICE!

You’ll notice I said plainly that we are ALL in that boat together you simply choose to be alone with your little bit of understanding. I choose to learn more and grow.

BLOCK ME THEN!

But know I will not block you, I believe blocking UNLESS FOR PERSONAL HARASSMENT is the Cowardly way out! Anyone is allowed to attack a point made on either side, that’s the point of Sodahead in the first place.

**********************************************

MY ATHEIST FRIEND:

“wow, a liar too! typical of fanatics,they go on and on after anyone has lost interest. you must have a sad boring little life.”

 ************************************************

MY FINAL RESPONSE:

I beg to differ with you, and consider this my last response sense I’m bored with your lack of Interest!

You have no interest?
You can’t lose what you never had!, which brings me to the question WHY FIGHT IT IF ITS NOT REAL. There’s something real and you can’t prove it’s not, so it bothers you, get over it you’ll never prove God isn’t there!

 

My life is full of Joy because of Christ, and I’m CERTAIN with absolute certainty that he is real. That’s something you as an Atheist cannot say about ANYTHING, if you do you have to admit that Absolute truth exists and if it does that it points to an absolute idea in life.

Because you reject the idea of a personal maker you must believe that an impersonal one — chance — has determined your reality, that is truly sad and boring!

Either:

1. There are no absolutes that define reality. Everything is relative, and thus there is no actual reality. There is ultimately no authority for deciding if an action is positive or negative; right or wrong.

Or:
2. There are absolutes that define what is real and what is not. Thus, actions can be deemed right or wrong based upon how they measure up against these absolute standards.

Hence, the chance that forms your reality (which by definition has no standard or objective sense) is the only “real” thing in the universe.

Everything is a chance occurrence, including your ability to understand who and what you are talking about!

Your “Meaning” is a fantasy. There is no way to derive a standard of truth that has any authority. Anything goes!

Because I believe that a personal God created all things, I can know:

–I was created for a purpose

–My level of fulfillment in life will be based on how well I accomplish the objectives (“will”) of my Creator.

–Some actions are right, while others are wrong. I can discover this difference by learning about the Creator’s plan.

–I am accountable to the Creator for my behavior.

Because you believe that “forces” of chance [Evolution] randomness created all things, you can know:

–That nothing is truly knowable, since there is no standard by which to define reality or by which to measure the factual nature of any given idea.

–That no action is any better than another, hence, all actions are meaningless.

–your then life has no value or purpose, because, in a very real sense, it is an accident

THIS IS COMPLETELY UNTRUE, BUT ITS WHERE YOUR UNDERSTANDING LEADS YOU. A BORING LITTLE LIFE!

A 12-step program for Republicans: For Those Drunk On Spending!

A 12-step program for Republicans

What America needs is a good 12-step program for Republicans.

If Republicans actually believed what they claim to believe and actually used their power to assert those beliefs, it wouldn’t even matter that Barack Obama sits in the White House.

We don’t have to convince Barack Obama that limited government is a good thing; the Republicans in the Congress could impose it on him – denying him the funds he covets to bankrupt America and turn it into a socialist republic.

But in 2011, we saw Republicans were the real barrier to constraining the role of the federal government to the powers enumerated in the Constitution.

All we really have to do is persuade the Republicans, over the next 12 months, to live up to their stated convictions. Failing that, there is no political hope for America. And I refuse to believe there is no political hope for the greatest country the world has ever known.

So I am determined to enlist support for this 12-step program to lobby Republicans to do something drastic in 2012. The 12 steps are actually 12 months of a sustained effort to infuse Republican officeholders, Republican donors, Republican organizations, Republican voters and Republican candidates to take a simple pledge that will transform America in January 2012 back to constitutionally limited government – no matter who is elected president in November.

To understand this simple plan, you have to recognize America is hopelessly divided, stratified, polarized. Americans are giving up on the political system, because it seems we can no longer live together as one nation. What has bound us together, the founding documents and a common political creed, is irrelevant to most Democrats. They believe fundamentally that government should do whatever it wants – the more the better. They believe the strict limits the Constitution places on Washington are archaic anachronisms of a bygone era. They literally believe the federal government should intervene in every aspect of the lives of individuals and states.

There is no dealing with Democrats – no common ground to be found.

With that in mind, I look for solutions that can be imposed on them. And as long as Republicans control even one house of Congress, which I am certain they will do in 2012, Republicans alone have the power to take America back in a dramatic fashion. All we have to do is convince them to use that power.

We failed to do that in 2011.

After the tea party used all of its energy to give the GOP control of the House of Representatives in 2010, the Republicans frittered away their power to impose a balanced budget on Washington. They frittered away their power to return Washington to constitutionally limited government with one vote. They frittered away their power to ensure Obama could not continue to recklessly spend money. They frittered away their power to turn Obamacare into a meaningless piece of legislation that could never be funded. They frittered away their power to get a balanced budget overnight.

They did all this when House Speaker John Boehner used his influence to persuade the Republican majority to support raising the debt limit.

Had they voted no, $1 trillion would have had to be cut from spending plans beginning last year. Government would have been forced to live within its means. There is nothing Democrats could do about it.

Why did Boehner and the House Republicans do that?

I’m not sure. But we must never let it happen again.

We have 12 months to get every Republican officeholder and candidate on record with a pledge not to raise the debt limit in 2012 – end of story.

That’s how simple it is to take America back. We don’t need any Democrats to support it. We don’t need any Democrats to like it.

Ron Paul supports this approach, as does Michele Bachmann. Sadly, only 22 House Republicans voted to oppose the debt-limit hike last summer. We need 218 votes in the next session of Congress.

That should be our single-minded focus – to convince Republicans to stop trying to compromise with Democrats and to use the absolute power they have with control of one House of Congress to impose their solution.

We don’t need any more 10-year plans to reach a balanced budget. We don’t need any more Paul Ryan budgets that actually call for more astronomical borrowing for years to reach a balanced budget. It’s time to go cold turkey and cut up Washington’s credit cards.

Could we convince Republicans and Republicans alone that this is the only way back for America in 2012?

I think we can. But it will take an unprecedented tea party-like uprising over the next 12 months.

I intend to facilitate that uprising – starting now.

If you are with me, sign on to the “No More Red Ink” program today. We need to start bombarding the House Republicans with letters and pressure now if we are to have any chance of success in turning off the borrowing spigot next January.
