What good is all this killing?

What good is it to be the best? Marine, soldier, salesman, chef; when it is over and everything is said and done, we will meet our maker and explain what it is we spent our time on. All of those that we shunned because we were busy doing something. The endless hours building our bodies so we could run, jump and shoot with great accuracy and then, it is over. We really should look at what it iswe are doing. I live in a country where bad is good and killers are rewarded. Today, when someone in America does not like someone, over there or over here, we just blow them up with remote control missiles. Other nations blow people up with suicide bombers but the fact is that we blow each other up for ….

My Muslim friends all know someone who knows someone who knows a suicide bomber and we all know someone who was “in the war.” And the end is coming. It is right around the corner. My Christian friends want revenge for the acts that are perpetrated against their family, friends, cities and nations. My Muslim friends want the same. When will it end?

When will the need of the least of these be important to us?

And they are dieing?

Oh Lord, I told the man about Jesus and introduced him to the brothers and sisters.  Now he is fleeing for his life.  His pastors and elders are in prison (again) and I wonder if anyone cares. They are dieing, suffering and hurting.  They are my brothers, are they yours?

I watched as people spent hours getting ready to go to church.  Fine clothes, fine cars and it is as if they do not read where Jesus braided a whip, told the sellers to get out and then left, went to the street and lived with the poor, hurting and dieing.  Jesus’ family tried to put him in the nut house because he would not go back to the family business and finally, he was arrested, tortured and put to death for my sins.  He asked me to follow him.  He died for what he and I believe. 

Paul said we should live like the prisoners.  Why can’t we get it through our heads that if we wanted, we could end world hunger and change this ball of pain and suffering we live on to something nice.

  1. Feed the Hungry
  2. Give the thirsty something to drink
  3. Take in the strangers
  4. Clothe the naked
  5. Visit the hospitals and give comfort.
  6. Visit the prisons and give relie

Jesus said he was coming back and bringing the angels to witness.  Matthew 25:31-46.  The Final examination is right there. 

God help us as we build fancy buildings and live on the blood, sweat and tears of the lost, lonely and hurting.

 

How can we be so blind and comfortable?

It is 3:33 AM here and I am praying that God will smite the church as he did in the time of Jesus, driving the Christians from their comfort and into the arms of the crying, bleeding and dying world. I see the Christians, now saved from the horror of their sin, heaping to themselves cars, houses and rewards that were meant to come to them in heaven. I watch them gather to honor God while ignoring the pain and suffering around the world and cry.  How can we be so blind and comfortable when our family is in jail, suffering for the Gospel?

My church, my church, how often have I sent you prophets to warn of your destruction. Then the bombs come and drive Christians to the streets and they retaliate in kind with many deaths of the innocent. The Muslims are sure Christians hate them so the Boko Haram blow up a church and the families of the dead attack Muslims and ensure more hatred, more violence and more pain.

Sunday here, people spend an average of 10.00 USD for lunch. They flock like a hoard of violent people on all you can eat restaurants, do not tip and make messes that would shame them before God.

The waiters and waitresses hate Christians, they are miserly, cheap and complain while the cults smile, hand out tracts and wish everyone well.

I stand with the crying and dying children with my hand out, wondering why they think they are working for God? Callous and blind, they want for themselves and have no time for the poor. I shy from Christians when they march triumphantly like the Sadducee and Pharisees, proclaiming their right to have while looking down on those that have not

Jesus did not do this. He slept on the street with the whores and pimps and befriended the tax collectors and thieves. He blessed the Romans though they were killers, rapists and thieves.

I watch the Nigerian Church try to become Western and yet, Jesus was not Western, but Palestinian and thought it important to feed the 5,000 even though his enemies were there with them, mocking him and waiting for the opportunity to kill him.

God help us, but Matthew 25:31-46 is not a joke and many will cry out and say,, Lord, Lord, didn’t we dance well, sing well and have such fine feasts?

I had a father’s day and was ignored by those that say they love me because I wanted to go to the poor and needy. They want and want and want. I am ashamed to be a Christian.

To be one of those that washes myself, prepares myself to worship God and then will not touch the broken and hurting that I might not be defiled before God. Yet Jesus spoke to one from outside my faith to help a wounded man. A man who was not too busy pleasing God to please God

The food I ate with my family is like poison. I could not sleep. I have an upset stomach knowing that the money spent could have blessed a muslim child that was orphaned by Christians who assaulted their neighbors because someone blew up a church. War begets war begets war. I am ashamed of my Christianity.

And Jesus said,, “who are my brothers and sisters, my mother and fathers, save those that do good to their enemies and return kindness for war. They tend the wounds of their neighbors and feed those, like Jesus, who need to hear. Jesus fed the 5,000 and we know there were those there who wanted him dead. The disciples were attacked and Jesus told them, “What did you expect?” Jesus fed the multitudes of non believers. He had no church. What would happen if all of our buildings were sold and the proceeds were used to bless others and not build newer and bigger churches?

I need to go to the streets and I cannot find one Christian that will go. Not one.

They want to organize, prioritize, isolate and indemnify themselves to they are not legally liable for those in need.

They want to make sure that they do not touch the unclean, spend time with Muslims and try to love them into the kingdom but they are ready and willing to go to war and kill them.

Then I will write, you make the book you can tell them of a 33 year missionary who is disgusted with his church, his people and his country.

Who is disgusted that in the face of pain and suffering we who have money buy bigger weapons and kill more of them than they us. Bush imprisoned his enemies. Obama just sends a mindless warhead into villages that kill man, woman, child and beast and he is not even claiming to work for God but it is God’s people that put him there.

I can hear a young child crying. I have nothing to give the child but today we will spend trillions, around the world on our buildings, houses and personal items, believing we are serving a living God. I am a veteran and there is no honor. I am a father and there is no joy. I am a missionary and there is no church willing to close its doors to go and bless those who persecute us, give aid to our enemies and love those that hate us.

What if….

What would happen if Christians who could live in luxury chose to live in poverty so those that were forced to live in poverty could live better. Jesus left his business and life and joined those sleeping on the streets. He ministered to the poor and when his family came after him to lock him up for being nuts, he referred to his mother as “woman,” a derogatory term, and disowned his family publicly. What would happen if we who can, didn’t go to the movies or big fancy churches, but lived like those in prison or who were poor. What if we, who can, denied ourselves, lived like the poor and then helped the starving and poor so they could live a bit better. Hrmmmm. Instead of building nice new houses where our animals are comfortable, lets live closer to poverty and give the poor (Matthew 25:31-46) Life and more abundant than that. Churches are closing because folks can’t pay the enormous bills to keep them open. sigh….
Deny yourself? Not in America.

Freedom to be slaves

 

The fall of America? 

I am watching in awe as the President of the USA no longer honors the constitution that is the basis for our liberty.  The President of the USA no longer considers Congress or the House as necessary for his political ends. 

I am amazed that the FED and international bankers now own America.  I am puzzled and amused that the Muslim Brotherhood are the consultants on anti-terrorism in the USA and that the only religion you can now freely speak of in schools and public is Islam.  I am puzzled that God is turning our dreams into reality.  Free sex (no babies) funded by our taxes.  Freedom to eat what we are told to eat and not what we can grow.  Freedom to go where we want, when we want, as long as big brother says OK. 

We, veterans who have given our lives for the country, watch as our nation sits idly by as the Muslims take country after country, murdering Christians, imprisoning them and making them slaves and we call that democracy. 

I will die for my faith but I will not kill you if you do not like it.  Speak evil of God or Jesus or the prophets.  They are certainly big enough to defend themselves.  However, if you mention Islam, Muslims, Mohammad or the Qur’an, you will be promptly, severely and mercilessly punished, by other Americans.

I am amazed but not amused.  My children are duped, doped and ignorant of what is happening.  My friends are clueless about what is happening and why.  The tube pores hour after hour of mind numbing nonsense and the world is collapsing under the burden of the wealthy who sincerely want Christians and Muslims to use nuclear weapons to destroy each other.  The rich will make it through, they are ready.

Sigh…

The Muslim Brotherhood, the death of America

The FED, AIG, The Muslim Brotherhood and the corrosion of life, liberty and the right to own property, to be individuals is dead.

The Islam Brotherhood has stealthily found its way into governments of all nations.  To speak of Islam truthfully, exposing their desire to crush all people and subjugate them to Islam, has been hidden from view and made illegal to speak of.  Muslims are taught to lie to achieve their goals.  They are made heroes to their people for taking oaths of allegiance to other beliefs and democracy, knowing that when in power, they will force Islam down the throats of the world with or without permission.  They don’t need a sword when they secretly control AIG, the World Bank and the FED.

Don’t worry about a suicide bomber.  You will not know when that will happen.  They kill a few.  The Islamist politician with the hidden agenda of enslaving the world is the one we should be aware of.  The first black man who became president, joined with the Islamists and is enslaving the world.  Like starving dogs, we have been stripped of our right to produce food and care for ourselves.  We have been made to eat when the government rings the bell and we are taught to love and not bite the hand that feeds us though we are fed because we can no longer be free to care for ourselves.  We have been herded into mental cages where we are expected to say thanks for drugs that are forced on us, immunizations and injections we cannot refuse and freedom to practice one religion, that of Islam.

Soon, it will be over.  We have been put to each others throats and our handlers, sitting high and lifted up, laugh that we don’t even know we have been caged, fed and prepared for entertainment.

Sigh….

Jesus, the Son of God and God himself can set you free.  You may still be physically bound but they cannot control your mind.  Freedom is just another word for nothing left to loose and they took everything.  They will take more and more and as happened in so many nations, they will put us at each others throat and watch as war torn nation fights war torn nation.

It does not matter when Jesus returns.  Do the work He has called you to.  If you die for your faith at the hands of the murdering minions, do not become like them and take their lives in return.

Deny yourself.  Love your neighbor and know that life is short so today is important.

This is the first day of the rest of your life.  Do well to others even when they hate and spitefully abuse you.

My day was growing…

My day was growing….

Yes, the problem is, the world is ending today for many. Hundreds each hour are starving and dying of disease that could be prevented and yet the music plays, people watch their TVs and go to the movies, ignoring the plight of those that are suffering and dying, until… until God decides to share the pain with them. There are many believers in each religion that feel that they have the right to subjugate others and make them followers of their beliefs. Democracy, Christianity, Islam, it makes no difference. When someone is willing to kill to make followers, the world ends for those that die. My eye grows dim. It is 7 PM here and the sun just set. Send me your syllabus so I can see what you are studying, perhaps, if God is willing, we will meet for that cup of coffee.

There is a man with a gun

 

In every religion, nation, ethnic group there is tolerance, save Islam, whose stated goal is to rule the world, nothing less. What can we do about that?  When Muslims are willing to blow up Muslims to get Sharia Law, then how can we live and work together.  To ask me to live under extreme religious practices like circumcision, mutilation, dominance and abuse, be it Hindu or Arabic or Christian, it is hard to believe that it is what God is asking us to do.

There is a man over there.  He tells me to take an injection of something that is going to save my life.  No thanks.

There is a man over there who tells me that I must leave my house and land and go to a place where I am safe.  I have seen many UN camps where they have starved people to death, confined people behind barbed wire and surrounded them with guns, for their safety.  No thanks.

There is a man with a book, a Qur’an or a Bible or some scrolls from some religion and they tell me that if I do not do this, confess that and tell people I believe what they are saying, I must die.  Ok, make it quick.

They say there are bad guys out there so to fly in an airplane I must take my clothes off while they look up my backside so they can protect me.  I will take a boat or drive or walk.

They say there are really, really bad people out there so the Constitution of the United States is not necessary.  Um… They say that the police do not need to explain anything and I must obey or be locked up (or die).  Dying is good, life is short.

They own me.  I am licensed because I was born.  I am licensed to drive.  I am licensed to travel, bank and though the edges of my life are becoming more and more crowded, the fences closing in, the rules more stifling, I might let them gather me and my family, send me to a FEMA camp where it is determined that I am not worth keeping alive and after a few years of incarceration, turn me into food for those who can pay their way out.  Soylent Green?

Door One, life as a lab rat.

Door Two, life as a lab rat incarcerated.

Door Three, go off the grid and live in a place where they won’t come.

Door Four… it is a good day to die.  Geronimo gave in and died in poverty and filth.  I think it is a good day to die.

You shudder and say, “What is he thinking?”  I am thinking, when the US Government gave me a gun and then surrounded me with people that wanted me dead, left me to die without support and only by the grace of God did I make it through, I decided that it is not so good believing in war and Government lies.

Why is it so strange that at 16, I was a soldier fighting for things no one told me about, that I now believe there are things that are more important than Governments telling me what to think?

Ummm … I am a Christian.  I will die for what I really believe, but I will not kill you because you don’t believe in what I believe.  I will not torture you or circumcise your children for a vague idea that leads me to believe it might please God.

 

Is Serfdom an Executive Order Away? | The Freeman | Ideas On Liberty

Some really scary stuff is happening in the States, SCOTUS approving strip searches for even the most minor offenses, NDAA, SOPA, PIPA, what the hell is going on? I would never ever move to America, this sort of slow decay in Liberty is what preceded the events in Europe. Who will save the Americans though? Surely not the Americans themselves.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Dear Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie,

I just saw your Ted talk http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&ved=0CE0QtwIwAg&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ted.com%2Ftalks%2Fchimamanda_adichie_the_danger_of_a_single_story.html&ei=46F0T7thyNyJAvHj2Rc&usg=AFQjCNFqq_-wnT8h99lnw667xIGPNW2UAw .

Let me introduce myself.  An old white missionary idiot.  I have been called by God to serve in Nigeria and have begun by doing my research.  It amazes me to see how completely perfect your talk, “The danger of a single story,” is.

I have a dream to visit Muslim villages and tell them that there is another sure way to get to heaven and it is not necessary for them to blow themselves up.  Another story.  Another way to look at God and not dominate or abuse or force.

You are my hero.  Thanks for more than one story of a black, Nigerian, African writer.  What about those who cannot read?  I take videos to villages where they have no electricity.  Will you make a video for me to show them?  Will you tell them that they are alive and worth a great price?  Will you tell the little girls that there is more than pregnancy, cooking and slavery to a male, brother, father, husband, tribe, nation?

Thank you for helping me.  Perhaps before I did, I can stop being an idiot.  Is there hope?
