Homosexuals into the Military

Written on 1/12/11

Am I the only one who sees the rank irony in the US Congress (the least respected public entity at 13% approval rating) requiring the US Military (the most respected public entity at over 75% approval rating) to accept homosexuals into their ranks, and the President signed it into Law? I think not!  Now what do Christian, Jewish and Islamic Chaplains (all condemning homosexuality as sin) do about this?  And what do the Military Academies do about this?  Then, too, what do the lawmakers do about the Uniform Code of Military Justice; how do you make an immoral act “legal” after centuries of established law on such reprehensible and debilitating conduct? Many of our laws legislate for or against behaviors. Most legislate for moral behavior, some against immoral behavior. This Law was legislated to promote immoral behavior.

What should we, the People, do about this?  I say we do two things.  One, pray that God will overturn this sin-sick law, and turn out of office all who championed it or voted for it. Two, bombard the President, the Supreme Court Justices and our Senators and Congressman with letters, phone calls, emails, faxes and petitions non-stop until they “get it” that we will not stop until they repeal this abomination, or overturn it, if it gets to the US Supreme Court.

Such treachery at the highest levels is even more stunning in view of the results of many voter referenda around the country, wherein they have, until very recently, overwhelmingly rejected the perverse, deviant, harmful, (and, in God’s words, “abominable”) behavior of homosexual “marriage” in their state. But remember, morality isn’t determined by voting. In some of those states, courts have overturned the voter results because the judges found the results somehow “unconstitutional”. Judges don’t determine morality either; God does. That’s why I suggest we include the US Supreme Court in the onslaught of communication about this sordid issue; we have had enough of judicial tyranny. Wasn’t it Billy Graham who once said, “If God does not destroy America for her great sin [of “official” approval of homosexuality], He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”?

Please join me in this non-stop deluge of the three branches of our elitist, increasingly immoral US Government to repeal the law that forces the military to knowingly accept homosexuals into their ranks. If you do not take your stand here, then where will you take your stand against the onslaught of evil? Perhaps the better question is, “If God does not see us standing with Him on this issue, will He assume we don’t care about morality and righteousness any more? And then will He abandon us to the tyranny that is settling all around us from a government out of control?” If ever there was a time for the People of America to cry out to God for His help in fervent nationwide prayer – and to do what we can to overturn this sin-sick Law – this is it!

Second Amendment’s Original Intent

Written on 2/04/13

Be not duped by certain politicians on their latest “gun control” crusade. They have almost successfully diverted everyone’s attention from the true purpose of the Second Amendment by saying such things as: “large capacity magazines are not needed for hunting”, or “you don’t need thirty bullets to kill a deer”, etc.

The original intent of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution is to ensure the citizens of this nation can arm themselves with firearms (individually or as part of a “Militia”) that can be used against a tyrannical government, if need be. That being so, there is also an implied intent of the amendment that citizens be able to arm themselves with firearms comparable in firepower and rate of fire to those weapons a tyrannical government will use. So limiting magazine capacities, denying firearms that “look” like so-called assault rifles, even denying automatic rates of fire (much less the semi-autos) are all leftist exercises to confuse the uninformed and without warrant infringe the Second Amendment. View this video piece about the 1946 “Battle of Athens” http://voxvocispublicus.homestead.com/Battle-of-Athens.html This clearly reveals that the unthinkable incidence of a tyrannical government is a real threat – and it has already occurred in this nation at a local level; so it is more than possible. Then view this video to see what gun confiscation has done in Canada: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmrqT9SIkQw

The Second Amendment is actually the guarantor of all the other Amendments and even the Constitution itself. The Third Amendment greatly assists understanding the original intent of the Second amendment: view this piece to get more about the Third Amendment’s meaning – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F584p5kJL-U&feature=youtu.be We Patriots must keep our focus, for Liberty’s sake.

On an allied note, several online sources report that the federal government, primarily some sub-agencies of the ominously large Department of Homeland Security, have procured over one billion dollars in ammunition. One article stated that the majority of the cartridges are for pistols and have hollow-point expanding bullets, which are intended for killing someone quickly. Such ammo is good for neither target practice nor for normal service carry. It just might serve us well if there were Congressional hearings on the Homeland Security’s intention with all that ammunition. Then there is the issue of DHS training and equipping what appears to be a National Security Force of youth called the FEMA Corps (http://www.dhs.gov/blog/2012/09/14/welcome-fema-corps-inaugural-class). A standing “army” of 18-24 year olds looks potentially sinister. Hearings on this are very much in order.

Age of Earth

Written July of 2014

Back on December 12th of 2012, because there were so many figures (millions/billions of years) floating around about the age of the earth, I decided to use the Creator’s own book, the Holy Bible*, to calculate a more accurate figure. Here’s what I found:

A quick look through the Bible reveals there are:

Ten generations from Adam thru Noah with an average lifespan of 858 years and with an average generation timespan of 155 years. (Genesis 5)

Ten generations from Noah thru Abraham with an average lifespan of 317 years and with an average generation timespan of 49 years. (Genesis 11)

Forty-two generations from Abraham thru Jesus (Matthew 1:17) with an approximate average lifespan of 80 years. **

Totaled there are 62 (10+10+42) generations from Adam to Jesus.

Doing a bit of basic mathematics with those numbers, we find:

We have the total generation timespan from Adam thru Abraham to be 2040 years ([10×155]+[10×49]). We can calculate the total generation timespan from Abraham thru Jesus to be 1134 years (42×27). The total generation timespan from Adam to Jesus then is 3,174 years (2040+1134).

To determine the age of the earth and creation from Adam to today, we must add the figure of earth-age from Adam to Jesus (3174) to the figure for the number of years from Jesus to now, which is 20 centuries plus 14 years, or 2014 years. (I am quite aware of the issues surrounding when the use of Anno Domini began. For our purpose here, such a consideration is well within round-off error).

Therefore, we can conclude, based on God’s Word (His Holy Bible), and by application of basic mathematics, that the earth and therefore, all of creation is about 5,188 years old, which, rounded to the nearest thousand, yields 5,000 years as the approximate age of the earth, and by extension, the age of all creation.

^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
* The Bible chronicles the creation of the earth and the universe by God in six days – to His Son’s birth, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension – ending with the follow-on work of Jesus’ disciples.

** The lifespan of people from Abraham thru to Jesus’ time was shorter than the early man lifespans. The Bible makes reference to a man’s age being three score and ten and even 80 years for a strong person. I use 80 as the figure for lifespans from Abraham’s time to Jesus’ time. Now, the timespan for a generation is roughly one-third of a lifespan. A man who lives to 80 years of age will produce children starting about age 27. (If any reader wants to rework this calculation with more rigor, I welcome it.)

COMMENTS:
Some may say this is not right. Then bring me a more accurate figure. It is entirely conceivable that as a flawed mortal man, I have made some mistakes in retrieving generational data from the Bible. My figures are based solidly on the one source of Truth in all of creation – God’s Word. You can (and sadly many will) dismiss the Bible with a sweep of the hand – but that won’t change what God’s Word shows us about His created universe.

Look at it this way for a moment, why would God falsify any of the numbers in His book? He doesn’t need to. His very nature as a Holy, Righteous God prevents Him from even thinking about giving us erroneous information. So forget that idea and realize that we are dealing with the Truth of God as revealed in His inspired Word to us. He can be trusted absolutely on this whereas man’s theories cannot be trusted, because such theories all depend on unsupportable assumptions.

God’s Truth stands immutable – whether we believe it or not…
