Now Is The Time…

March 22, 2010

Yes my friends, now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. This health care bill has passed. Now comes the time for legal action, civil disobedience and all other manners of opposition that we are legally entitled to as United States citizens. Now is the time for states to pass laws unbinding themselves from this burden that has been placed on their shoulders. Now is the time to call for the impeachment of Barack Obama for unconstitutional actions. Now is the time for citizens to refuse to adhere to an unconstitutional infringement upon their liberties. Now is the time for all good men to act.

Now is the time for Republicans and conservatives to restate their opposition to this bill and their commitment to having it repealed. Now is the time for Republicans to gear up to make sure that Barack Obama is a one term president. It is the time to ensure that Nancy Pelosi never again becomes the Speaker of the House, that once respectable house of the people that is now little more than an enclave of corruption, arm twisting and bribery, that once honorable institution that is now little more than a partisan playhouse wherein one party passes groundbreakingly bad legislation over the will of the people. Now is the time for all good men to act.

This bill will do nothing to address the problems with health care but will cause massive amounts of new problems. New government programs will allow for more red tape, less innovation, more taxes and worse care. This bill will provide federal funds for abortion despite Obama’s symbolic gesture of an executive order disallowing abortion funding. Stupak was duped and he screwed the American people with his vote. My prayer is that he will be replaced with a true pro-lifer. A conservative Republican. Now is the time for all good men to act.

Nothing we can say or do will remove the fact that socialist democrats have passed the most marxist, statist piece of legislation in the history of our proud Republic. But what we can say and do is repeal it before the damage is done. We must take this fight to the conservative Supreme Court and have it nullified by showing it’s true constitutional problems. This bill can be defeated even now, repealed, annulled, nullified. It can be and it should be. Let every Republican now raise his/her voice in support of taking this bill to the SCOTUS. It is the time for every Republican challenger and incumbent run on the repeal of this monstrosity. Now is the time for all good men to act.

I watched the whole spectacle yesterday. Starting at 1:30 in the afternoon I watched as Pelosi and co. were heckled by angry protesters all the way up to 11:45 P.M. after the final vote was cast. I watched as socialist dems cheered the demise of freedom in America. It was then that I swore in my wrath that I will do everything in my power to bring America back to where it was when I was a child. Where it should be according to the Constitution and our founding fathers. It is my time to do everything I can to support conservatives and Republicans like John Boehner, Michelle Bachmann and Mike Pence who resolutely fought this bill and continue to do so. Now is the time for all good men to act.

“Almighty God, Creator of all things, Upholder of the universe, we come before Thee today to ask that You not remove Thy gracious hand of blessing from our land. I ask that Thou put within the hearts of Americans a contrite spirit, that we might return to Thee and repent of our wicked ways. We ask that Thou protect our leaders, but that Thou might convict them and cause them to turn against this bill that dishonors You through the slaughter of the unborn. Please Lord we beseech Thee, save our land. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I pray, amen.”


Angry Protesters Make Their Voices Heard on Cap. Hill

March 21, 2010

House Democrats walked through throngs of angry protesters shouting ‘Kill the Bill!’ among other things on their way to the House for the upcoming vote on health care. Tea Party protesters made themselves heard, including a few who shouted racial epithets at black members. The number of those were small and did not represent the whole crowd.

In all honesty, things are looking better for us than I previously thought, as it now appears that there are less than 200 strong yes votes and the dems need at least 23 of the 26 undecideds. Democrats though remain confident that they will pass this bill.

Republican Paul Ryan of Wisconsin issued an urgent plea against government run health care replete with charts and graphs representing the steep increase in debt and deficit if this bill is passed. His mother in law is on a drug for ovarian cancer that would be banned if government ran the pharmacies. God Bless him for his testimony and ardent opposition to this bill.

Hell(th) Care

March 19, 2010

My friends, we are on the brink of a precipice from which we will not easily return. Thanks to princess pelosi and the democrats, we are now simply 2 days and a vote away from becoming another country with socialized medicine. The sad thing is that 73% of Americans DON’T WANT this bill. According to several sources the phones on the hill are ringing off the hook with the vast majority of calls being against this monstrosity of a bill. Yet somehow, inside the beltway bubble and within princess pelosi, harry the hairy ape reid and obama’s sphere of influence, the representatives are more concerned with the speaker of the house than they are with their employers, the American people.

Now, for all the liberals/progressives/marxists/commies out there, well they’ll probably say ‘look at that idiot! He can’t spell (title) and doesn’t know how to capitalize (proper names). WRONG! I, An Informed Mind, know full well all the conventional rules of grammar, I am instead choosing to do what I can to oppose those that are usurping our rights and trampling our Constitution. Congressional democrats are going against the American people and I can guarantee you there is going to be a revolution in this country. But it is going to be a peaceful, electoral revolution. Americans are going to vote en masse to throw the jack-n-apes out of office come this November. And I can say this, they had better be prepared to defend this bill because the Republicans are coming and they are campaigning on the dems voting a health care bill down an unwilling public’s throat.

There is still hope that this bill won’t pass. Yes votes can become no votes through the public voicing their extreme hatred for this bill and by dems either seeing the light or feeling the heat. However, if it does pass, I will do everything in my power to force Congress and every elected official to repeal this infringement of our rights. Never before has government mandated the purchase of a good. Contrary to progressive, marxist theology, health care is not… wait let me say this with maximum emphasis NOT a right. Something that can be bought and sold is not a right but a good. Same as a car is not a right, nor a job. Only in Soviet Russia do they think that such things are rights. Rights come from GOD as stated in the Constitution: “We are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Congress has no right to transfer, take or give rights. If they did it would be tyranny and that is exactly where we are headed.

All Christians that love their country should begin praying RIGHT NOW that this bill does not pass. “Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, upholder of the universe, we beseech Thee humbly in the name of Thy Son Jesus Christ, that Thou imbue our leaders with wisdom, that Thou strengthen the foundation of our Republic and that Thou change the minds of them that would vote for this bill. Lord, we know that all nations are next to nothing to You and that Thou regardest not a wicked man, but we ask Thee humbly to protect and preserve our nation by Thy providence and keep this bill from passing. We ask that we may glorify Thy name in honor, Amen.” I believe that the same God that removed the sickness from the body of Hezekiah, the same God that raised our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead, the same God that made the sun stand still in the Valley of Aijalon can change the course of our history in that we may go back to freedom and liberty instead of into the long dark night of government tyranny. I believe that if we come humbly before Him, believing, in faith we can defeat this bill or repeal it if it does pass. Pray dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

For you conservatives that are not Christians we can still defeat this bill. However, I cannot unwind my Christianity from my conservatism. To me they are inextricably intertwined. It goes Christian, American, Conservative. All are important to me. But back on subject, flood Congress with your phone calls, emails, faxes, letters. Go to the Congressional offices and stage a sit-down. Take a bullhorn and make your voice be heard. Congress, if they don’t hear you now, they NEED to hear you SOON before this evil bill from the pit of hell is passed. If it is, it will be that much harder to repeal it.

(Toll Free numbers below! Call and tell everyone you know to call as well. Make your voices heard about NOT WANTING THIS BILL!!!)

How To Be Saved

March 14, 2010

Since I am a Christian who believes with all my heart that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins, I find a burden on my heart from the Lord to tell those that come across my blog how to be saved. I am not a minister, though I do aspire to become one someday. I am simply a servant of the Lord and must obey His word.

First, ask yourself the question, have I ever stolen, committed adultery, lusted after someone? Have you ever taken God’s name in vain or used it as a curse? What about worshiping something besides God? If you have, you’ve sinned. I’ve sinned. I still do. I sin every day and usually many times a day. Sin is defined as doing what is contrary to what God says is right. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 NASB. No one is deserving of God’s grace and we all deserve to be punished for our sins.

If we were to be punished, we would all be going to hell. Hell is a place of torment where we are separated from God’s spirit and subject to eternal flames. And that is where we all deserve to go for violating God’s laws. However, God loves us so much that He doesn’t want anyone to have to experience that torment. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV. God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to pay for our sins. He lived a sinless life as fully human yet fully God. He was born of the virgin Mary. He was baptized by John the Baptist. He was tempted by the devil. But He didn’t sin. He was crucified on a Roman cross for you, and for me and for the whole world.

Roman crucifixion was one of the most brutal ways to die. The victim had his hands and feet nailed to the cross and usually died of suffocation after the Roman soldiers broke the victim’s legs. This made it much harder to push up and ultimately the victim could no longer breathe and died. However, Jesus’ legs were not broken. He voluntarily died and took our sins upon Himself. In this manner we have forgiveness, if we accept Him and His free gift of salvation.

But the glorious truth is that He didn’t remain in the grave. The grave couldn’t hold Him! After three days in the tomb He rose again! “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said.” Matthew 28:5-6 NKJV. Jesus Christ, Son of God, died on a Roman cross, was buried in a borrowed tomb and rose on the third day! And the most glorious truth of all is that His death and resurrection can set us free from our sins if we accept Him.

“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6 NKJV. Christ died for us. All you need to do is “…confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead…” and “…you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 NKJV. You can have new life. You can have those sins forgiven. You can have peace with God. You can know that if you died right after you read this sentence you will be going to heaven and not hell.

Let me tell you about heaven. Heaven is the antithesis of hell. Heaven is a place of eternal joy, where no sorrow can inhabit and where you are in God’s presence forever. “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Doesn’t heaven sound wonderful? You can know right now that heaven is where you’re going when you die.

All you need to do is pray a simple prayer. It can go something like this: “Lord, I know I’m a sinner. I know I deserve punished for my sins against You. But I confess that Jesus Christ is Your Son and is God and that He died and was resurrected to pay for my sins. I accept His free gift and make Him my Lord and Savior. In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.” It can be stated differently. There are no magic words involved. All it takes is a contrite heart and believing in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. He will save you and cleanse you from all your sins if you just accept Him.

If you do, I’d love to hear from you and maybe encourage you on your new journey. Write to me at If you have any questions I’ll try to answer them, but I don’t pretend to know all the answers. Another excellent website to go to is

The Left’s Assault on Assault Weapons

March 12, 2010

The left’s obsession with banning ‘assault weapons’ is fascinating. They tout the weapons as machine guns, full blown war fighting weapons that are more relevant in Chechnya than in Chatanooga. But the truth is, the left is using propaganda to sway voters minds and to try and enforce ever more restrictive gun laws and thereby take away Americans’ second amendment rights.

Assault weapons are little more than military weapon look-alikes. They are not machine guns, when one pulls the trigger bullets do not fly out in bloodbath inducing regularity. One pull of the trigger equals one bullet. The difference is that, like handguns, you can keep pulling the trigger and bullets keep coming out, unlike traditional rifles or hunting weapons which after you fire you need to reload. Some of the weapons include militaristic features such as pistol grips and flash suppressors. However, criminals do not prefer such weapons in many cases as they prefer easy to conceal and carry handguns. Therefore, by grabbing the long guns off of citizens, the government is making Americans less safe.

The framers of the Constitution knew that firearms had many purposes. Thomas Jefferson touted guns as for sport, preferring the use of firearms to games involving balls. Washington and others used firearms to hunt, both for sport and for food. However, they also knew that guns are essential to the rights of a free people. Tyrants don’t rule when the people are armed. That is the basis of the quote “when the people fear the government there is tyranny, but when the government fears the people there is liberty.” Guns are essential to the repulsion of foreign invasion as well as domestic oppression. The founders knew this and the reason that we ultimately did win against the British in our war for independence was because ordinary citizens took up arms and became citizen soldiers.

I’m not advocating the purchase of assault weapons. I don’t personally see the need of owning one myself. However, I do see the folly in taking arms out of the hands of lawful owners. My family owns several weapons. We have never once committed a crime with those weapons nor have we been tempted to. Weapons are not the problem, the problem is the fallen state of sinful man. Banning weapons doesn’t fix anything, it just makes the lawful owners less able to defend themselves from the criminals that will get guns regardless of gun laws. So, as a proud conservative and gun rights supporter, STOP TRYING TO BAN GUNS!!!

Peddling the Word

March 6, 2010

The other day when I posted TBN: TV from Hell I was riled up as most people that read it could tell. I take it very personally when someone basically sells the Word of God. Now I understand that there are people that make their living preaching the Word. I totally understand that, I respect that. However, these blind, false prophets are using their influence at TBN to ENRICH themselves through the preaching of a totally corrupt word that is twisted and contorted to fit their Biblically unsound theology. And it enrages me that someone could change the life-giving message of God coming to earth in the flesh, to die on the cross to take away our sins and as punishment FOR us. How can someone so willingly and knowingly pervert such a profound and lovely Gospel?

The Bible says in Galatians 1:8, “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” That’s pretty clear Benny Hinn, Juanita Bynum, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Jan and Paul Crouch, Creflo Dollar, Jesse Duplantis, etc. Paul, the apostle to whom Jesus appeared on the Damascus road, said that we should preach only the Gospel of Christ, and Him crucified otherwise let us be accursed. That means if I add one little thing or take one thing away, I am in deep sin and need to repent and do it fast! Benny Hinn as a faith healer needs to repent in great sorrow for the people he has misled. Juanita Bynum as a false prophetess needs to repent in deep sorrow for the people she has mislead and for claiming a false word from God, Jan and Paul Crouch need to repent for spreading their false gospel to every corner of the globe, Jesse Duplantis needs to repent for his teachings on money and extra-Biblical teachings.

Every day there are unsung heroes of the faith, the tireless pastor who visits the infirm in their homes to give them encouragement, the evangelist that receives little monetary compensation yet spreads the word wherever he/she goes, the missionary that endures extreme hardships while preaching the Gospel to other cultures. Yet charlatans like Hinn and Crouch get monumental amounts of credit for preaching a gospel that doesn’t exist anywhere in the Bible. Why? Because the world system is set to praise those that do not preach the accurate truth. Satan WANTS them to go out there and spread their message. It doesn’t matter one iota what they say about him, as long as what they’re saying about Jesus Christ is wrong, incoherent or unBiblical. Satan uses faulty messages from false prophets to distort the message of God and keep more sinners from accepting His free gift of salvation.

But this is not a simple ‘the devil made me do it’ type of scam. All of the TBN participants are lured by the love of money, greed, covetousness and all other vices stemming from financial gain on a mammoth scale. These televangelists get paid more than many top CEOs in corporate America. Jesus told us however, “Freely you have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:8 NKJV. TBN’s Praise-a-Thons have become notorious for their flagrant outstretched hands and calls to ‘sow your seed and receive the blessing/anointing’. Yet, strangely I might add, they never call on you to sow your seed to a different organization or church or ministry. Always you’ll be blessed if you sow to TBN, so much so that if ‘you have only a nickel, wrap it in tissue and send it.’ (According to Juanita Bynum) Why must so called Christians do these things? Why must they even accept the poor widow’s mites, nay, rob her of them through false promises of anointing and blessing from God? If God was going to anoint and bless someone, he wouldn’t need that someone to ‘sow a seed’ to a disreputable, shady, underhanded and greedy organization like the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Why must they call out even for the last pennies of a poor person desperate for hope?

Paul admonished believers to work for their food. And many pastors heed that call, either spending nearly every waking moment tending to the needs of the ministry God has called them to, or by working a secondary job to earn enough to support their families. Yet TBN pastors, teachers and healers live in multimillion dollar houses that are nestled quietly inside compounds guarded with iron bars and security teams. We are the salt and light of the world! We are to be out in the world, winning souls to Christ! Not inside our compound bowling in our private bowling alley!

I want to call upon all those at TBN to repent! I may not be a world famous televangelist or a renowned theologian, but I do have a sound Biblical understanding of the Gospel to see that those at TBN are perverting it terribly. They had better alter their course soon for God is longsuffering, but His wrath will come upon those who change His message to suit their own greed.

TBN: TV From Hell

March 3, 2010

That outlandish sounding headline is exactly what I believe. After watching a small portion of their annual Spring ‘Praise-a-Thon’ while being sick, I was so thoroughly disgusted that I almost felt like retching. Let me tell you why.

I have never liked the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Their ‘praise’ shows left me feeling like I had just watched a circus replete with begging for donations, proclamations of overabundant blessings (after a sizable donation to TBN of course) and faulty Bible preaching. People would be dancing around in the stands preparing to receive ‘the anointing’ that was surely going to come straight from God, flow through the exorbitantly bejeweled preacher and make everyone whole and prosperous. The preachers were sweating so hard the sweat rolled down their necks and soaked their suits. (I never knew how much Pentecostals say ‘watch this’ either!)

The whole thing stood in contradiction to the Bible’s command to be ‘sober and vigilant’ (I Peter 5:7) and that “for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” I Corinthians 14:33. Surely these ‘preachers’ must know the command that we are to represent God well and to do so we must be sober and vigilant? But that was not the worst of the problems of the show. They actively and almost entirely preach the gospel of prosperity and health. They give whole new meaning to the ‘name it, claim it’ gospel. One man equated TBN (with an estimated worth of over $1,000,000,000,000 and annual revenues of 200,000,000) with righteous Job (who lost everything he had, including 7 sons and 3 daughters, his entire servant corps, all his cattle, donkeys and oxen and dignity for a period). He said that in the same way that Job was attacked by the devil TBN had been attacked.

Really? Huh. Last time I looked there was very little of anything that was happening bad to TBN. Certainly nothing like the devil’s attacks on Job. You see, the devil attacks those that are doing things to advance God’s kingdom. The devil attacked Billy Graham when he was doing his crusades, the devil attacked the great evangelists of Billy Sunday and D.L. Moody, the devil attacked Jesus Christ because Jesus is the Man and the Glory, God incarnate, the Lamb of God, the Rose of Sharon, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. TBN has not been attacked because they teach utter heresy that actually advances Satan’s goal of hindering the Word of God’s spread.

TBN regularly hosts Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn, Jesse Duplantis and other ‘teachers’. Most if not all of their featured speakers ascribe to the prosperity gospel and other heretical teachings. Joel Osteen never preaches on sin, instead focusing on God’s good favor towards Christians. That’s all well and good except that church is not supposed to be a inspirational experience. Church is supposed to convict you, teach you, and uplift you in the Scriptures. In my short experience in listening to Osteen I have little remembrance of him using many scriptures whatsoever, let alone on the topics of sin, hell, death or any other ‘negative’ theme that has a place in ministry. As a church, you are supposed to present the Gospel in a way that if some unsaved person walks into your door, you can present it to him/her that he/she might hear and accept God’s free gift of mercy and love. Talking about love nonstop without the repentance aspect may make the unsaved feel comfortable, but that will not do their souls any good on the day of judgment. We must pray that Joel Osteen corrects his message to fit more in line with God’s Message.

Joyce Meyer on the other hand is one of the most prominent prosperity teachers. While she may have some more theologically sound doctrine, she also has over $400,000 worth of vehicles and at least 1 multimillion dollar private jet. She and her family live in gated seclusion from the community at large in $200,000+ houses. The ministry picks up the tab for the maintenance and upkeep of all property, houses and vehicles because ‘we travel so much’. Well if there is so much travel, why the need for such lavish homes that you spend little to no time in? (As a side note, the furnishings for the Meyer ministry headquarters cost close to $5 million)

Benny Hinn could be the worst of the list. Not only does he live lavishly but his heresies are well documented, yet he continues to have a huge platform to spew his unChristian beliefs. He once taught that there are as many as 9 persons in the Godhead (known as the Trinity) and that if he ‘had a Holy Spirit machine gun, I’d blow your head off.’ Sound like a born again, loving Christian? Hinn also has told viewers in the past that there would be such an outflowing of God’s favor that if viewers put their dead relatives’ caskets in front of the television screen and pressed their hands to it, they would be miraculously raised from the dead: “The word will spread that if some dead person be put in front of this TV screen, they will be raised from the dead — and they will be by the thousands…” [Praise the Lord, October 19th, 1999] (As a side note Jan Crouch, wife of the founder Paul Crouch, was in tears over her pet chicken’s miracle resurrection.)

Jesse Duplantis appears to be the most acceptable of them all. Why you ask? Because my sisters and I were once taken hostage by his cajun flavor and his smooth preaching. We thought he was great. But then some troubling things began popping up. Talking about money a little too often. Asking for donations at the end of every show despite having lavish and very beautiful furnishings behind him. Then we found out that he claimed he needed an $18,000,000 private airplane. Then buying a piano with $9,000 on hand. Eventually we found some things about him that shocked us. He talked about ‘angel-babies’ that became something on earth and how people that ‘didn’t quite live right on earth’ had to rest and eat special fruit in heaven and needed to work their way to being able to see God in heaven. Then he talked about a streetcar that took him to and from heaven. Then he talked about having to cheer up God and that God told him that He needed him. It went downhill fast. This man could be one of the worst. DO NOT LET HIM BECOME ENTRENCHED. Even after we learned these things about him his preaching style was hard to let go of. Like a tick, you need to pull him straight out otherwise his poisonous teachings might become entrenched in your soul. Despite his grandfatherly looks and smooth style, he is a heretic and needs to be confronted and set straight from his evil teachings.

TBN itself is heretical. It rakes in millions of dollars yet it uses that money on gold chairs, private jets, more and more satellites to spread their self-enriching prosperity gospel that does nothing but provide a false message and turns off people to the real message of Jesus Christ, that of salvation by faith in Him and the remission of sins. They should immediately renounce all their ties to faith-healers like Hinn and prosperity preachers and repent of their own heresies. God will forgive them if they repent of their doctrines of demons that have long ravished poor peoples’ souls.
