Resist & oppose HR 3185 which violates the law of love – An Open Letter to all God-fearing Americans

Love at times seems hateful. Not that true love is hateful, rather, it -appears hateful to those who love sin.-

For example, when a mother tells her children to stay away from the jar of sugar, she is hoping that they will not eat the whole thing and poison their systems. When a father tells his children to listen to their mother, he intends their good. The children may say, “You hate me.” In fact, the parents are doing the most loving thing.

In the same way, sometimes loving speech can seem hateful. Love makes us do things that seem foolish.

In today’s environment, people don’t like to hear that what they are doing is wrong. If you tell someone that what they are doing is wrong, they will say you are being hateful.

Our Forefathers were well aware that society’s can become corrupt, and so they quickly passed the First Amendment which guarantees Freedom of Religion, including the exercise thereof and the freedom of speech.

Religion by nature states that certain things are right and other things are wrong. There is nothing wrong with this aspect of religion in itself. Why? Because there is God who has already given His Word on what is right. If God says something is wrong, it is wrong.

Right and wrong are not decided ultimately by the citizens of these united states. Rather, truth is decided by God. As the Declaration of Independence held, we are all created equal by God.

The sad fact is that we have all equally gone astray.
There is none that does right.
Each has gone to his own wicked way.
The way of peace this nation as a nation no longer knows.

If you doubt me, ask even the Muslims. The Islamic world is on a jihad against the free world, subtle at times and at other times very violent. Islam can only succeed when a nation forfeits her freedom.

When America cuts loose from her moral restraints, jihad will break loose on America in dimensions the news has yet to report.

God is giving America an opportunity to repent, though. If we will speak up in love for what is right and against death and against sin and against every manner of evil and wickedness, then again will justice, peace and truly liberated love flourish as it is expressed lawfully when the word of God is honored in this land again.

We need to protect the freedom to speak against moral and sexual sins like homosexual behavior so that the rest of the freedoms of society may flourish. Otherwise, America will perish like Sodom & Gomorrah as a nation, but the remnant who clings to the truth of God’s word will be preserved, though they run to the Middle East to find refuge in the desert and on the distant islands where the deserts and coastlands shall bloom once more.

depending on the Messiah as the only true Prince of Peace,

If the above seems extreme in light of future history, feel free to disregard me as a poet. If the truth of God’s word is fulfilled, then it will have proven to be prophetic. If you don’t believe me, read the Bible. If you don’t believe the teaching of Jesus, please comment below.

Money & Compassion: What is Marriage, What is Love?

Several mistakes in this “debate” as I listened to it:

A. Suze Orman attempts to justify her homosexual feelings/actions for another woman through her monetary success. Money does not prove anything. If it did, Al Capone and the crooks who successfully steel millions would be saints. Money is not the basis for right & wrong. Money is not the basis for marriage.

A2. Suze bases her argument on estate taxes (and she makes not claim to poverty, to my knowledge.) But then says that this is not really the issue when the Ryan Anderson states that he and the Heritage Foundation share the position calling for the abolition of the unjust estate tax.

B. There is something wrong with Suze Orman. She is a sinner … like everyone else was in that room, not to mention in the world. Therefore, Suze’s choices do not prove anything about what should be legally endorsed or not.

C. Suze basis her definition of marriage on monetary status: from that perspective all of the following could be eventually: polygamy, incest, herbogamy, pontigamy.

D. Love leads to life in terms of reproduction, not merely adoption.

E. America is defined as tolerant & loving … forget the liberty to state truth based on what God said & based on historical realities.

F. A very small, very biased sample size (the studio audience) is used to represent an entire nation of well over 315,000,000 people. Hmmm… not a very sophisticated way to prove a point.

G. Suze calls Ryan Anderson uneducated, when in fact he is well educated, being a Ph.D. from Notre Dame and graduating with highest honors from Princeton. She then recants and states that while he may have his facts collected and correct, he is wrong. She then lifts herself up and says she has “compassion” on him. That is a lie. She has no compassion for him, otherwise she would hear Ryan out. She is arrogant because she judges as intolerant while not wanting to tolerate him.

If she truly felt compassion for him, she would perhaps be moved to grant Ryan Anderson’s organization the Heritage Foundation a gift of substance. This is the most ugly kind of love: it boasts of itself, while giving not gifts; it does not lead to future generations, but propagates lies; it claims to be tolerant, but cannot stand to hear the truth.

IF this is America, then America will fall. And like Babylon of old, it will be a great fall. Like Rome, it will fall utterly when the rottenness in Washington, New York, and Hollywood have pooled together into a cesspool of corruption that leads to the pit. Woe to this America with a futile, empty compassion! Woe to this America that calls evil good and good evil. Woe to this America that conspires against righteousness!

Is there hope for America? Yes, if people in America will repent and trust in Jesus and humble themselves and delight themselves in the redeemer rather than in the ridiculous notions of their own morality. There is hope, ready to be had, if only Americans will call out to Jesus as their friend and will acknowledge their own sins and turn from the sins of our fathers. There is hope if we allow the Word of God once again to govern society and look not only to vain tradition but to the Scriptures which are able to equip us for every good work.

If there is a lack of good work this year, it is because we have failed to look to Jesus to provide it.
If there are hungry people in the world, it is because we have fed ourselves rather than sharing.
If there are lonely people, it is because we have lacked real compassion & real love that reaches beyond marriage into all nations.

I must go now.

New Saudi Weekend Honors Sabbath: Will Bless both Jews and Arabs.

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia recently opened up the way for Saudi’s weekend to come more in line with Jewish and Christian interpretations of the weekend: Friday-Saturday rather than Thursday-Friday. Most markets around the weekend follow the Jewish or Jewish-Christian pattern of taking the Sabbath (i.e. commonly called Saturday) off.

Take a poll!

Bloomberg’s article on economic implications:

More significant than the economic implications though are the implications for how this is a partial fulfillment that the earth is the Lord’s & everything in it. The Lord chose the Jews and revealed the Sabbath to them as a day to work and rest. I encourage everyone to take time to do that: to rest from all work. What is interesting about this, is that it is a sign that Arab peoples are reconciling with the culture of the Jews, even if the motive is temporal financial gain. What will this lead to, but Life from the dead … when they honor the Sabbath which remains: the finished work of Jesus on the cross!

Jesus, Isa-al Masih is the real establisher Sabbath. He is Lord of the Sabbath. He is the Sabbath, or rest of completion in that he enables us to relax in Him. We no longer need to worry about anything. We are now free to work productively and be happy because we are no longer slaves to sin. Maybe one day all Saudis will be liberated from all oppression of all sinful desires, but first it helps to have the law conform to the Law of the Lord.

If you do what blesses the Jews, you will be blessed. Jews are being blessed as they follow a form, how much more will they be blessed when they follow the Lord with their whole heart!! Muslims in Saudi Arabia are prospering a little financially as they serve God with their lips and actions while their hearts are far from Him. Consider what would happen if they loved the Lord in both soul and spirit, with their heart and their whole life:

1. They would find salvation as they trusted the Word of God, as they became slaves of the Word of God (Kalimattullah).
2. They would spread the Good News of Jesus rather than the laws of the desert.
3. They would reconcile fully with Israel.
4. They would stop funding the spread of false teaching.
5. They would labor to free Muslims from honoring Muhammed as the Greatest and give that Honor to the Lord alone.
6. They would work harder and value hard work as befitting good fruit for good lives.
7. They would find happiness in life.
8. They would see the desert bloom.
9. They would cease calling down judgment and building Mosques for the LAW.
10. They give in ways that bless Jews and Christians around the world.

If you are a Christian or Jew, consider praying for the full salvation of Saudi Arabia.
If you are a Saudi, consider praying to God for a full revelation of the Sabbath.
