Goodbye Kitty



Long ago I had a Basset hound named Daisy for eight years. And one day she just disappeared. I have no idea what happened. I've never saw her again. I grieved for that dog to a degree that I wondered if it was sinful. It wasn't. People grieve for animals they are attached to.

I told my husband I never wanted to be that attached to an animal again.

Nine years ago we got this cat. I am every bit is attached to him as I ever was to Daisy. He is full of personality. He's also a companion cat. He likes to be with his people. He follows me around the house or he did until he became completely paralyzed in both of his back legs and his tail. We don't really know why. All we know is that this does happen to old cats. He was an adult when we got him.

He is in no pain. He just can't use his back legs at all. He still spends 90% of his time in bed with me at night or on sitting on my lap or on the couch beside me when I'm at home. Of course I have to move him there or he will drag himself to where I am. He doesn't appear to be in pain. He sits on my lap and purrs most of the evening just like he used to. He can still drag himself into his litter box but I have to clean him up afterwards. He still eats.

But Friday Wes has an appointment to have him put to sleep. I've cried for two days.

Actually, Obama despises the west and he despises Christianity because he hates God.

From the article:

By Ben Shapiro

http://www.nationalreview.com/author/ben-shapiro

“A religious leftist, he breaks down Bible believers into two categories: fools and liars.”

“Something deeper drives Obama when it comes to Israel. Why else would he spend the last few weeks of his presidency throwing gasoline on Israel and then lighting a match?”

“Here’s the most plausible explanation: Obama despises Israel because at root, Obama despises the traditional Judeo-Christian underpinning of Western civilization. He breaks down Bible believers into two categories: fools and liars. The fools are the “bitter clingers,” the idiot masses who fall into racism and xenophobia and Bible jabber because they’re poor and stupid. The liars are the self-interested characters who want to do what they want to do while citing the Bible for their support.”

John Kerry’s Fitting Ending

"Trashing Israel on the way out the door is the perfect capstone to an ignoble career.

John Kerry ends his long career in politics the same way he began it: disgracefully."

http://www.nationalreview.com/

Because Barack Obama has cursed Israel at the United Nations, America is now under a curse. Friday's stunning betrayal of Israel at the UN Security Council is making headlines all over the planet, but the truth is that what Obama has just done is far more serious than most people would dare to imagine.

Over the past several decades, whenever the U.S. government has taken a major step toward the division of the land of Israel it has resulted in a major disaster hitting the United States.

This keeps happening over and over again, and yet our leaders never seem to learn. And despite the fact that President-elect Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and prominent members of both parties in Congress strongly urged Obama to veto Security Council resolution 2334, he went ahead and let it pass anyway.

Because the United States has veto power on the UN Security Council, nothing can get passed without our support. And it has been the policy of the U.S. government for decades to veto all anti-Israel resolutions that come before the Security Council.

But this time around, it appears that the Obama administration was working very hard behind the scenes to get this resolution pushed through the Security Council before the end of Obama's term. At least that is what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is claiming...

"From the information that we have, we have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed," Netanyahu said in a statement. "This is, of course, in complete contradiction of the traditional American policy that was committed to not trying to dictate terms for a permanent agreement, like any issue related to them in the Security Council, and, of course, the explicit commitment of President Obama himself, in 2011, to refrain from such steps."

I am sure that there will be a tremendous amount of debate about to what extent the U.S. was involved in creating and drafting this resolution, but there is one thing that is exceedingly clear.

The ultimate decision as to whether or not this resolution would be adopted was in the hands of one man. Barack Obama knew very well that he had this power, and in the end he ultimately decided to betray Israel.

And now that our government has cursed Israel at the UN, our entire nation will be cursed as a result.

In the Scriptures we are repeatedly told that God will bless those that bless Israel and will curse those that curse Israel.

When Barack Obama blocked a similar resolution that France wanted to submit for a vote in September 2015, it resulted in America being blessed, and we definitely have been blessed over the past 16 months.

But now that Barack Obama has reversed course and has betrayed Israel, we will most assuredly be cursed. In the days ahead we will see how this plays out, and perhaps we can get some hints about what may happen by reviewing recent history.

There have literally been dozens of instances in recent decades when the U.S. has been hit by some sort of immediate disaster when it has made a move toward the dividing of the land of Israel.

The following are ten of the most prominent examples that stand out to me...

#1 The last time the U.S. government refused to veto an anti-Israel resolution at the UN Security Council was in 1979. On March 22nd, 1979 the Carter administration chose not to veto UN Resolution 446.

Four days after that on March 26th, the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty was signed in Washington. As a result of that treaty, Israel gave up a tremendous amount of territory. Two days later, on March 28th, the worst nuclear power plant disaster in U.S. history made headlines all over the globe. The following comes from Wikipedia...

The Three Mile Island accident was a partial nuclear meltdown that occurred on March 28, 1979, in reactor number 2 of Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI-2) in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States. It was the most significant accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history.[2] The incident was rated a five on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale: Accident With Wider Consequences.[3][4]

#2 On October 30th, 1991 President George H. W. Bush opened the Madrid Peace Conference which brought Israelis and Palestinians together to negotiate for the very first time.

In his opening speech, Bush told Israel that "territorial compromise is essential for peace". At the exact same time, "the Perfect Storm" was brewing in the north Atlantic.

This legendary storm traveled 1000 miles the wrong direction and sent 35 foot waves slamming directly into President Bush's home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

#3 On August 23rd, 1992 the Madrid Peace Conference moved to Washington D.C., and the very next day Hurricane Andrew made landfall in Florida causing 30 billion dollars in damage. It was the worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

#4 On January 16th, 1994 President Clinton met with President Assad of Syria to discuss the possibility of Israel giving up the Golan Heights. Within 24 hours, the devastating Northridge earthquake hit southern California. It was the second worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

#5 On January 21st, 1998 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived at the White House but received a very cold reception. In fact, President Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright actually refused to have lunch with him. That exact same day the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, sending the Clinton presidency into a tailspin from which it would never recover.

#6 On September 28th, 1998 Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was working on finalizing a plan which would have had Israel give up approximately 13 percent of Judea and Samaria. On that precise day, Hurricane George slammed into the Gulf Coast with wind gusts of up to 175 miles an hour.

#7 On May 3rd, 1999 Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was supposed to hold a press conference to declare the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital.

On that precise day, the most powerful tornadoes ever recorded in the U.S. ripped through Oklahoma and Kansas. At one point one of the tornadoes actually had a recorded wind speed of 316 miles an hour.

#8 On April 30th, 2003, "the Road Map to Peace" that had been developed by the so-called "Quartet" was presented to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon by U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer.

Over the next seven days, the U.S. was hit by a staggering 412 tornadoes. It was the largest tornado cluster ever recorded up to that time.

#9 In 2005, President George W. Bush (the son of George H. W. Bush) convinced Israel that it was necessary to remove all of the Jewish settlers out of Gaza and turn it over entirely to the Palestinians.

According to the New York Times, the very last of the settlers were evacuated on August 23, 2005. On that precise day, a storm that would be given the name "Katrina" started forming over the Bahamas.

The city of New Orleans still has not fully recovered from the damage that storm caused, and it ranked as the costliest natural disaster in all of U.S. history up to that time.

#10 On May 19th, 2011 Barack Obama told Israel that there must be a return to the pre-1967 borders. Three days later on May 22nd a half-mile wide EF-5 multiple-vortex tornado ripped through Joplin, Missouri. According to Wikipedia, it was "the costliest single tornado in U.S. history."

The UN Security Council resolution that was passed on Friday is the biggest betrayal of Israel in modern history. As I explained in my last article, I believe that America's reprieve is now over and all hell is about to break loose in this country.

When Barack Obama blocked the UN Security Council from dividing the land of Israel in September 2015, according to the Word of God we should have been blessed as a nation as a result, and we were blessed.

But now Barack Obama has cursed Israel by stabbing them in the back at the United Nations, and according to the Word of God we should be cursed as a nation as a result.

And as surely as I am writing this article, we will be cursed.

Dear Male Cowards: Islam LOVES Your Political Correctness

Doug Giles

Jan. 31, 2016
I don't know who started the politically correct pussification process of the male collective, but I'd like to find them and pistol whip them into next week with my S&W Model 29 for ruining our planet.

Why am I irate this glorious morning in the Texas hill country?


Well... simply put: it's because males are being shamed, taught, lead, pastored, drugged, schooled, coerced and cajoled into throwing out their brains, handing over their balls and formally abandoning the rarefied air of the testosterone-leader-fog that God and nature hardwired them to dwell in; and instead they've become a weak, effeminate, mangina-sporting, shriveled up quail. That's why.

I hate this emasculated culture.

It's pathetic and pervasive and it's effects on society are deadly. As in, literally. I'll explain later.

If you think I'm full of specious doo, then sit your skinny-jean-wearing butt down in your Hello-Kitty chair and watch a little TV and pay close attention to the male characters, whether fictitious or “real”, and tell me with a straight face that you'd want these preening dandies to have your back in a gunfight.

A couple of weeks ago I took the aforementioned TV Puss Test and here's what I observed being directly and indirectly shoveled down our male pie-holes regarding what “being a man” meant.

Man buns and glitter beards are now “all the rage”.
The Boy Scouts Of America have banned water pistols.
Boys at this one school aren't allowed to play soldier any more.
A university banned fencing because a sword fight might break out.
Brotox is becoming popular among men.
Some lame-ass company now has “Diet Whiskey” for “men”.
A thirteen-year-old boy was actually punished for being a hero.
A study showed that men are now beginning to talk like girls. Like in ... OMG.
A gym removed it's squat rack because it was intimidating to it's squishy clients.
I saw on Facebook an old pro-toy gun TV advert that sure as shizzle wouldn't fly today.
And most male actors are not men in the classic sense of the word that I grew up with, but rather male tinkerpots that are required to cry on cue.
And that was just scratching the pop culture surface; and it doesn't include the uber-effeminate “Christian” TV zombies or our craven politicians on the Left and the Right.

Speaking of politicians... the reason Donald Trump has mass appeal is he's not afraid of anyone... except for Megyn Kelly. And who wouldn't be afraid of this FOX-funded, gorgeous, gothca-question buddy of Michael Moore? Anyway…

That said, I believe one of the rankest places our pussification shows it's browless noggin is in regards to Islam. These ridiculous and antiquated people want to conquer and kill us and we're told to not point that out.

Back in the day, our news sources, military leaders and politicians wouldn’t mince words about Nazis, or Stalin’s thugs, or Japan’s shiitake; but God forbid that we should say that Islam spawns terrorism more than fried eggs and bean dip make Rosie O’Donnell gassy.

Yep, one of the most egregious forms of effeminization, and one that yields up the most ubiquitous examples, especially during Obama’s reign of terror as Wuss-In-Chief, is the politically correct fetal position the “media”, and especially liberal politicians, take when discussing bat-crap crazy Islam. It’s pathetic.

Here's how lame some men have become when facing Muslim Mayhem at home and abroad. I grabbed these headlines from my website ClashDaily.com. Check it out:

Brits Cancel Mohammad Cartoon Exhibit Because It's Too Offensive
UK Pool to Ban Bikinis and ‘Islamically Inappropriate Swimwear'
US Embassy Removes July 4 Celebration Out of ‘Respect for Islam’
NYT Whines About How Our Bad-Ass SEAL Team 6 Kills Terrorists
Oxford University Warns Authors Don’t Write About Bacon, Might Offend Muslims
NYT Says, Chris Kyle ‘Insane’– Bruce Jenner ‘Courageous’
College Students Demand That American Sniper be banned from Campus Because It’s Too Offensive.

As Col. Ralph Peters famously said, “My God, ISIS is taking over the Middle East, and our President can’t even say Islamist Terror.”

Daily, I see the most “You-gotta-be-kidding-me” excuses made, and cover given for, Muslim rapes and violence in Europe. It’s disgusting and it’s turned deadly in Sweden and Paris all via the intentional kissing of Islamic butt.

Personally, I think Europe is done. Their culture has become too PC and the invasion of Islam now too expansive for them to recover.

Finally, Leftists and Islam need you to be cowardly, docile and house-trained. They must eradicate a man’s masculinity in order for their evil machinations to thrive; and they’re doing a good job of making males spineless weasels aplenty… a society of frightened men.

Here’s my easy prediction: until men start acting like men and defy these religious Islamic monsters, then you and I can expect more massacres, rapes and invasions, and loss of our sacred liberties; and all because of our culture's systematic pussification.

50 reasons I don't drink.

50 REASONS WHY I DON'T DRINK
(50 Razões Porque Eu Não Bebo)

By Jamie Morgan | Published July 21, 2014

I did not write this. I am adding this because the topic has come up in here. Things in parentheses are from me.

I am a Christian and I don’t drink. I am also a pastor and ex-alcoholic. I need to make that disclaimer right up front. Although it makes me biased, it also makes me an expert on this hotly debated issue.

Some of the worst “shudder moments” of my life have been under the influence, and as a pastor, some of the worst “shudder moments” I have witnessed in the lives of others have been because of alcohol. You have come too late to tell me it’s God’s best for a Christian to drink.

(I agree with that. I was never an alcoholic, but I certainly was a barfly before I was born again 30 years ago. Nobody can tell me anything about hanging in bars and getting drunk that I don't already know. Been there. Done that. Wes delivered from this. Will never go back in the name of Jesus)

We are living in a church age where drinking has become “hipster” for some. Christian young adults post pictures of their signature drink on Facebook. Middle-aged Christian women name drop their favorite brand of Pinot Grigio to impress their wine snob friends. Churches send direct-mail postcards that read, “Give our church a shot!” featuring an edgy shot glass graphic. Even some pastors drink. Not this one.

(I know there are churchgoing people who argue that drinking is OK, but I didn't know this kind of nonsense was going on.)

I stopped drinking when I became a Christian 26 years ago. No one told me to abstain. I just knew it would be contradictory and self-defeating to my relationship with Christ. I had given my life to follow Jesus and nothing was going to hinder my walk. For me, it was a no-brainer.

(30 years ago for me. Lost all interest in drinking ever again the instant I was born again.)

This article is not a theological defense on the topic of Christians and alcohol (another article for another time), but it is a heartfelt plea. I humbly ask you to table any knee jerk, pro-alcohol, fight-for-my-right-to-drink arguments that you have ever heard, or made, and prayerfully consider this list.

50 reasons why I don’t drink:

1. I can’t be sober-minded if I’m not sober.

2. Alcohol has an assignment: destruction.

3. Alcohol is a depressant. Anything that depresses should be avoided at all costs.

4. I don’t want to make my brother or sister stumble in the name of exercising my “Christian liberties.” My choice to drink could lead to someone’s demise.

5. Alcohol skews my judgment.

6. Alcohol leaves me worse, not better.

7. What I do in moderation, my children will do in excess.

8. Even the unsaved know I shouldn’t drink. Bible in one hand, beer in the other – any lost person could point this out as a confusing contradiction.

9. Alcohol doesn’t bring others closer to the Lord when they see me drinking, but farther away.

10. Alcohol doesn’t bring me closer to the Lord when I drink, but farther away.

11. I want to be fully awake and ready for the return of Christ, not drowsy, sluggish and fuzzy.

12. Show me a family that alcohol has made a positive difference in their lives. You won’t be able to.

13. I have never heard anyone say, “Wow, that gin and tonic made me feel so Christ-like!”

14. I want to avoid all appearances of evil.

15. Alcohol makes it much harder for me to practice the fruit of self-control.

16. Alcohol causes me to lose my filter.

17. Alcohol is a mind-altering, legal drug.

18. Alcohol is addictive.

19. Alcohol is a numbing agent for pain and sorrow that only Jesus can heal.

20. Many regrets are associated with alcohol. (I can give you a whole bunch!)

21. No one has ever said, “If only I had taken a drink, things wouldn’t have gotten out of control.”

22. Alcohol causes me to act in ways I normally wouldn’t.

23. Alcohol kills brain cells.

24. Alcohol is a counterfeit, and provides a false peace.

25. The Bible says that no drunkards will enter the Kingdom of God. Being drunk starts with and one drink. I don’t want to see how far outside the lines I can color when eternity is at stake. (YES!)

26. Alcohol is a waster – money, gifts and talents, destinies, etc.

27. Alcohol leads to really bad behavior. It is a factor in 50% of violent crimes.

28. Alcohol distracts and derails you from living the the victorious life for which Christ died.

29. Wisdom is the principle thing that I need to pursue at all cost; alcohol makes me stupid.

30. Alcohol has ruined many, many marriages.

31. The only influence I should be “under” is God’s.

32. The Bible tells me to be alert; alcohol delays my reaction time.

33. If I don’t start drinking, I’ll never have to stop.

34. Alcohol severely tarnishes my testimony.

35. Don’t want your teenagers to drink? Yep, same reasons apply to you.

36. God is holy; alcohol is not.

37. Alcohol and prayer don’t mix.

38. Alcohol and Bible study don’t mix.

39. Alcohol lowers my resolve to resist temptation.

40. Alcohol = Brokenness (broken lives, health, dreams, etc.)

41. When the world sees us drinking it sends the message that Jesus isn’t enough.

42. Moderate drinking? How about moderate pornography or moderate heroin use or moderate lying or moderate adultery?

43. Christians are called to live a life of total surrender and separation from the world.

44. Alcohol makes me forget. It can make me forget that I am married, that I am saved, etc.

45. “I don’t get drunk. I only have one or two drinks.” If they didn’t affect you, you would drink soda.

46. I should never look to the glass or bottle for joy which can only be found in the Lord Jesus Christ.

47. Alcohol fills my mind with impure thoughts.

48. If it could hinder my faith walk, love walk or dishonor the lordship of Jesus Christ I need to forsake it.

49. Alcohol doesn’t help me run the race that Jesus has marked before me to finish with more accuracy. It does the polar opposite.

50. For any argument that tries to justify Christian drinking, there are at least 50 other reasons not to. The writing is on wall. It’s not God’s best for Christians to drink.

I did not write this but I absolutely and completely and totally agree with this because it's the truth according to the Bible.


Some may say they disagree. That means they are wrong. Those who disagree with what's written here need to repent and change their mind and in a hurry.

Let Christians everywhere start preaching the truth of God's Word against sin!!! Homosexuality is a sin! (Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:24-32); Adultery is a sin! (Exodus 20:14); fornication is a sin! (Jude 1:7); Watching people commit adultery on TV is a sin! (Romans 1:32); abortion is a sin! (Exodus 20:13); witchcraft is a sin! (1st Samuel 15:23); pornography is a sin! (Matthew 5:28); corrupting the Word of God is a sin! (Deuteronomy 4:2); teaching a false gospel is a sin! (Galatians 1:9); adding anything to faith alone in Christ for salvation is a sin! (Ephesians 2:8,9and so forth! If the born again Christians of this world fail to preach against sin, then who will?

I am wearied with believers who say that we should love, love, love sinners; but never preach against sin. Certainly, we are all guilty, hell-deserving sinners in God's eyes (James 2:10); Bu those who have accepted Christ are saved and now seek to speak the truth of the gospel so other can be saved, but that in no way means that we should accept the wickedness of the wicked (Psalm 94:16; Ephesians 5:11; Titus 1:10-13). I triple-dog dare you to show me anywhere in the Bible where God says to tolerate public wickedness, remain silent about those who try to homosexualize our children, and parade their sins for all to see down America's streets. No Sir! That is not what the King James Bible teaches! We're supposed to love sinners (Leviticus 19:18), but also take a stand against sin (Psalm 94:16; Ephesians 5:11).

No one has God's permission to commit homosexuality. Our freedom gives us the right to BE wrong, not to DO wrong. Liberty gives us the freedom to make our own decisions; but freedom is a result of making the right decisions. God doesn't make mistakes. No one is born “gay.” If people are created homosexual by God, then why can't they sexually mate as do male and female? Why can't they conceive children? It is evil to blame God for the spiritually demonic, vile sin of homosexuality. Get right with God America! We witness in truth and in love but we stand firm on the truth and warn the wicked man for true love tells the lost so they can be saved it does not sit quiet.

God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God's standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”

God's Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro or homo sexual). Sex is to be between man and woman within marriage.

God's design for natural sexual relationships is part of His plan. Homosexuality falsifies what God designed. Sin often means not only rejecting God but denying or rejecting how and why we are made. Though it may be considered acceptable by some today -- even in some churches -- it is not acceptable to God. And we need to take that seriously.

Sexual sins were rampant in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. (This is the origin of the word sodomy.) Despite warnings, they refused to repent. God destroyed those cities and it was recorded as a warning to all future generations (Genesis 18:20-21, Genesis 19:4-5, 2 Peter 2:6). Some additional scriptures on homosexuality are found in:
• Leviticus 18:22
• Leviticus 20:13
• Romans 1:26-27
The price paid for homosexuality and other fornications are told in:• 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
• Jude 6-7
• Romans 1:18
In spite of the growing secular humanist trend to think "it's ok to be gay," it's not a righteous lifestyle. Most vocal Christians do not hate homosexuals , but are trying to share Christ's love for homosexuals and trying to keep them from horrific judgment.

There absolutely is hope for homosexuals. God can cleanse and purify all persons from sin. As many scriptures as there are that address sin, there are more that speak of forgiveness and redemption. He is able to give deliverance to any who sincerely desire true freedom and salvation. Such is demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 6:11 (KJV): "And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." This verse says “some of you were,” meaning they became past acts.

We are offered the empowering Spirit of God to help us turn from our sins. Coming out of drug addiction, homosexuality, pornography, or other sin isn't always easy but God will provide the way. Christians are to "love" into the kingdom, those who desire repentance and to live by His natural plan.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again the third day. He desires that we repent and be forgiven of our sins by coming into a personal relationship with Him.

EARNESTLY CONTEND FOR THE FAITH !

( Comments in parentheses are from me.)

**Jude 1:3"Beloved ,when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation ,it was needful for me to write unto you,and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."**

Today few 'contend' for 'the faith' and defend the Truth of holy scriptures.The Greek word for 'contend' occurs only here in the New Testament. The word describes the intense struggle in a athletic contest. Jude calls us to action, to be earnest and fervent in defending the true gospel.

**When the purity of the faith is being poisoned we need to show our love for the Truth by 'pointing out' the poison and warn the saints-'do not drink the poison'!!**

**2nd Peter 2:1"But there were false prophets also among the people ,even as there shall be false teachers among you ,who privily shall bring in damnable heresies ,even denying the Lord that bought them ,and bring upon themselves swift destruction."**

THEY ARE CALLED DAMNABLE HERESIES!

1.The root word for contend is the word agony. **The defense of the faith may be agonizing and costly but it is our duty to fight the good fight of faith.
God's people must stand without compromise for the divine inspiration, authority and sufficiency of God's holy Word.** The faith refers to the 'whole body of doctrine' taught to us by Jesus and the apostles in the New Covenant.

2.When some teacher comes along with his new revelations which adds to or subtracts from the Holy Bible we must resist, renounce,reject and rebuke it openly.

**Titus 1:13"Wherefore rebuke them sharply,that they may be sound in the faith."**

(That includes this idea of tradition of the church being equal with scripture, the book of Mormon being equal with scripture, the watchtower be an equal with scripture. This is the hallmark of want to Catholicism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses are false groups: cults and not Christianity)

3.False doctrine is like a deadly poison that must be identified. We must speak the truth in love but we must never compromise. We must dare to take a stand even if it offends some and upsets others. Contending is not easy. It calls for hard work ,diligent study and a willingness to stand against anything that would pervert the gospel of Christ.
**2nd Tim. 2:15 "Study to show thyself approved unto God ,a workman that needs not to be ashamed ,rightly dividing the word of truth."**

4.**There is an onslaught of heresies that have invaded the Church, but today if you expose error you are called mean and judgmental and that you have a critical spirit.** But true love does not tolerate teachings that hurt the sheep.

5.**Today many embrace a shallow, sugary defective faith that does not produce godly saints but worldly church members who are still goats and not disciples of Jesus. The tolerance of sin and false teaching has corrupted many churches. They have very low,shallow views of who God is that ignore his majesty and holiness.**

The question is "where is the fear of God today?"

**Vance Havner said, "More preachers need fire in their sermons and more of their sermons thrown into the fire. The fact that the gospel is not popular is all the more reason for preaching it. The very fact that men cannot endure sound doctrine is all the more reason for seeking that they get it. It is not our responsibility to make it acceptable; it is our duty to make it available."**

***A.W.Tozer said, "False teaching is falsifying of data on vital points about God ,ourselves,about sin and about Christ. 1st any false teaching begins with a wrong concept of God. No one who hold to a right concept of God can go far wrong in anything else. All errors that have been made, all start with a wrong view of the character of God."**
(For many people in today's church the false concept of God they coming to is that God is love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love and nothing else. God is a God of love, but he is holy first. He is holy before he is anything else.)


6.Friends, those whose allegiance to Christ and the full New Testament faith must never allow its message to be weakened by compromising it authority, distorting its truth or explaining away its power and promises.

**1st Tim.1:19"Holding faith ,and a good conscience ,which some having put away concerning the faith have made shipwreck."**

**1st Tim.4:1"Now the Spirit speaks expressly ,that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils."**
It is very important to be sound in the faith in these last days.

7.THEY ARE THE HOLY SCRIPTURES! **ALL SCRIPTURE IS INSPIRED BY A HOLY GOD.
The doctrine of the inspiration of scriptures is vitally important and a doctrine the devil attacks all the time.**

Biblical inspiration is the supernatural influence of the Holy Spirit on the Bible's writers,which guaranteed that what they wrote was absolute Truth. The Spirit is called the Spirit of Truth.

8.THE HOLY SCRIPTURES ARE PROFITABLE. **2nd Timothy 3:16"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,for reproof,for correction ,for instruction in righteousness."**

A..DOCTRINE-Doctrine tells us what is right and true. We need to know sound doctrine.

B..REPROOF-Reproof will tell us what is not right in our lives.

**2nd Tim.4:2 'Preach the Word, be instant in season,out of season, reprove,rebuke ,exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.'**

Many reject a message of reproof and rebuke.

C.CORRECTION-Correction tells us how to get right with God. We all need a message of correction in our lives. Many are afraid of correcting when they preach for fear of offending people.

D.INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS-This tells us how to stay right and live a righteous life in this present world.(Titus 2:12)

From me:

In The answers to questions before they are asked section.

Yes, there are things that Christians can disagree on and still be brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.

There are doctrines that true Christians can do for her own and still remain true Christians. That is not what this is addressing.

There are certain teachings in today's church, certain sense that are excepted by people who claim to be Christians, that are not acceptable at all according to the Scripture. That is that.

No, the Bible cannot be interpreted by many different people in many different ways anyway somebody wants to or however somebody feels about it today. There are certain rules of interpretation and have been followed for centuries. There is also something called common sense.

Truth is not determined by how you feel. Truth is only determined by what the Scriptures say.

Truth is not determined by whether your life for somebody else's life lives up to Bible teaching. Truth is determined by what the Bible says. If your life does not agree with Bible teachings, change your life.

“Where’d the false narrative start? It started with you, Madame Secretary,” said Jordan, adding that a statement released by Clinton the night of the attack suggests as much. “At 10:08, with no evidence. At 10:08, before the attack is over. At 10:08, when Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty are still on the roof of the annex fighting for their lives, the official statement of the State Department blames a video. Why?”

Verse of the Day.

Hebrews 9 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

Romans 14 11It is written: " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' "12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
