Woke Nonsense Warps Everyday Life

America is a Great nation, founded upon Great principles, sure we have had issues during our history but until recently we have always been able (at least in my lifetime) civilly discuss them and reason with each other. This is no longer the America we live in today and I fear it is on the slippery slope to self-destruction.


For the first time in their lives, Americans of all classes and races are starting to fear a self-created apocalypse that threatens their family’s safety and the American way of life…

Devotional Thought for Today – 08/19/2021

Bible Verse of the Day - day 231 - image 42335 (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

Ecclesiastes 12

CONTEXT: Chapter 12 has tow clear divisions, v.1-7 speak about remembering our youth as we grow older and physical and mental affirmatives come upon us. Then in v.8-14 we are reminded of the wise teacher/preacher and all his instructions. The overarching theme being a repeat of Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.

Our main text, v.13, for today is the key to life, or as Solomon says, Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. NOTHING written before this or after matter more than what Solomon is about to write.

What is that key? Simple; fear God, and keep his commandments, that is what man was put on the earth to do. Fear God here meaning to stand in awe and reverence of Him at all times. To willingly (never grudgingly) keep His commandments. The Puritan Catechism similarly says: Q1: What is the chief end of man? A1: Man’s chief end is to glorify God, ( 1 Corinthians 10:31 ) and to enjoy him for ever. ( Psalms 73:25-26 )

Why is this [is] the whole [duty] of man? In the Hebrew this could be rendered as This is the whole man, read that way the implication is clear, without fearing God and keeping His commandments man is not whole, not complete as a man.

If that was not enough “incentive” to bring man instep with God, one would think v.14 would certainly do so;  For God will bring every act to judgment, every hidden and secret thing, whether it is good or evil. God sees all hears all and will judge all.


Pray for Grace to Assist you that you may be Diligent in your Duty

Lord, quicken us to work the works of him who sent us while it is day, because night is coming, wherein no one can work; John 9:4(ESV) and what good our hands find to do, enable us to do it with all our might, for there is no work or knowledge in Sheol, to which we are going. Ecclesiastes 9:10(ESV)

Lord, grant that we may never be slothful in zeal, but fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; Romans 12:11(ESV) steadfast and immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord our labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58(ESV)

Lord, make us zealously affected in every good work; Galatians 4:18(KJV) and in whatever we do, enable us to work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23(ESV)

Lord, enable us to do the work of every day in its day, as each day requires, Ezra 3:4(ESV) making the best use of the time, because the days are evil; Ephesians 5:16(ESV) that when our Master comes, he may find us so doing. Luke 12:43(ESV)

MSNBC Calls Christians the American Taliban Because They’re Pro-Life on Abortion – LifeNews.com

WARNING, less you think it not possible here in America, the coming intolerance for all things “Christian” is only beginning!


Twice in one week, senior pundits at MSNBC have compared Christians to the Taliban. On August 14, MSNBC host Joy Reid, speaking of the Taliban, tweeted that “our own far religious right” is “dreaming of a theocracy that would impose a particular brand of Christianity” on American society.

the lead story on MSNBC’s website, written by Dan Obeidallah, picks up on the comparison by criticizing Republicans who cling to “a narrow reading of their religious beliefs,”…

Sunday Sermon Series – The Lukewarm Church

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:14-20

Revelation 3:14-20

“The seventh and final letter to the churches of ancient Asia Minor is to the church in the city of Laodicea. This last message is found in Revelation 3:14-22. Laodicea was a wealthy, industrious city in the province of Phrygia in the Lycos Valley.

The message is from the Lord Jesus Christ via an angel or messenger (likely a reference to the church’s pastor): “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write . . .” (Revelation 3:14). This was not simply John’s message to those in Laodicea; it was a message from the Lord. Jesus identifies Himself thus: “The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.” These titles emphasize the Lord’s faithfulness, sovereignty, and power to bring all things to their proper completion (the “Amen”).

In contrast to the other six churches, the Laodicean church has nothing to commend it. Jesus begins the message with condemnation: “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked” (Revelation 3:15-17). Jesus emphasizes their “lukewarm,” apathetic nature three times. As a result of their ambivalence to spiritual things, Jesus would have nothing to do with them. He would “spit them out,” as the people of Laodicea would spit out the tepid water that flowed from the underground aqueducts to their city. With their apathy came a spiritual blindness; they claimed to be rich, blessed, and self-sufficient. Perhaps they were rich in material things. But, spiritually, the Laodiceans were in a wretched, pitiful condition, made all the worse in that they could not see their need. This was a church filled with self-deceived hypocrites…

…In summary, the church at Laodicea had become apathetic in their love for Christ. They were allowing “the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things [to] come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful” (Mark 4:19). Christ called them to repent and live zealously for Him, to “choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve” (Joshua 24:15). The Lord Jesus issues the same call to those who say they follow Him today. ” 1

Why The Greatest Gift the Church Can Give Us Is Forgiveness

We have all been there and seen them, individuals or churches as a whole who shun ex-inmates or those who do not “conform” to their ideal of the “perfect” Christian. Simply put that is Legalism and has no place in any CHURCH. Basically, they are saying Christ’s atonement was good enough for only those they chose. I want to be careful here and clearly state neither I nor the author is making a case for open widespread forgiveness when church disciple need be applied. That is clearly something different and greatly lacking in evangelical churches today.

Only 36% of Americans Think Joe Biden is Really Running the Country

Think of him, President Biden, what you may, this is not another “popularity poll” like those taken while President Trump was in office. This one clearly shows the nation giving a vote of no confidence. I wonder how it plays out on the international scene? I am sure China and other rivals are drooling.


Most Americans have doubts about whether President Joe Biden is really running the country, according to a new poll. Breitbart reports the Trafalgar Group/Convention of States Action survey asked likely voters if they believe Biden “is fully executing the duties of his office.” According to the poll, 57 percent said they believe “others are directing policy and agenda” in the White […]
