I have come upon a very distressing article written by Longstreet who is a Veteran. He lives in North Carolina where he has been following this desecration of the Christian faith from within the Veterans’ Administrations hospitals for some time now. His site, INSIGHT on Freedom, has some information I believe is necessary for everyone to read, whether you are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Atheist, etc. It is written by Laud Pitt, Jr., Ret. US Army Lt. Colonel, in the Fayetteville Observer.

Why do I suggest that people of other faiths bother with what appears to be Christian problem? Because if the USA government, which was created upon Judeo-Christian principles, can eliminate God-given rights for us, then they can take away your rights as well.

Why are they doing this? Political correctness? Does it really matter? My right to worship to my God is more important to me than my right to breathe. Should I give up that right as well? God-given rights are simply that, GOD-GIVEN…not government granted.

They have come after our speech, our ability to support whatever candidate we like so that they have to work everyday since they were elected to get re-elected, our ability to assemble with whomever we choose so that men can have their private playhouse (golf courses) and women may have their own private places, and so many more rights.

Do you really own your property when the government can tax it away from you? What happened to taxation without representation? Do we not have the fire in the belly anymore, or is it that we no longer know right from wrong?

Anyway, that is why we should all be concerned. To strip someone of their constitutional right to do one thing is to strip us all of our rights…eventually. It just so happens that people seem to think that Christians will sit back and take it over and over again. Let me remind you, it was the Christians, not Muslims, that ran the underground railroads to free the slaves. It was the Christians, not the Hindus, who fought for the right for women to vote. It was the Christians, not the Buddhists, who fought for the very freedoms we hold dear and separate from England. Those are just the facts. Live with it. Christians will allow it, others will not. Keep that in mind…

Now back to the issue. No longer may the Pastors bring a Bible or pray with patients at the VA. Read Longstreets post, please. He covers this rather well. Thank you, and feel free to spread the news. Call your Senators and Congressman toll-free at 866-340-9281 and let them know what you think of the way our servicemen and servicewomen are being treated. Even if they want their Pastor to pray for them, they cannot. Have you ever heard of any government being so intrusive? Stop laughing. I mean in the USA, not Iran or North Korea.

Merry Christmas

My post tonight is short but sweet:

MERRY

CHRISTMAS

to all, and to all a good night.

Read Full Post »

Oh my, what an oxymoron! Christmas time is a time when everyone is supposed to celebrate the birth of our LORD and Saviour, yet behind the scenes there is much work to be done. Yes, the cooking, the shopping, the cleaning of the clothes to wear to Church, the tree and decorating, and the blogging. A new phenomenon!

I have tackled most of it. It’s the blogging time I have a hard time finding. The only thing I want to really say in this post is Merry Christmas to all of readers, friends, family, and people I’ve yet to meet. God bless your efforts and you.

For those of you who are not Christians yet for whatever reason, to you I pray for peace in your heart. Peace that will allow you to allow me my LORD and my love for Him. You do not have to agree with me, but do not deny me. I won’t stand for it. Just as I won’t stand for anyone trying to force religion on you. Fair is fair.

I pray for all our troops who have served, are serving, and will serve our blessed country. May God continue to protect, guide, strengthen, love and grant them success in each mission. May He also make it possible for them to enjoy this day as best they can.

Please remember their families and other loved ones who are still here while they are yet thousands of miles away. Pray for them so that the distance will not be so hard to bear. They deserve so much gratitude and appreciation, but they also deserve our true support.

Please try to get to a Veteran’s Hospital today. They sometimes have no visitors, and today would be a great day to show up. Imagine that. All that is necessary is showing up. Wow. That is also that is necessary to bring a smile to someone who gave of themselves so that we may remain free. Protectors of Liberty. As Jesus came to offer us life eternal, a way to wash away our sins, these men and women protect us in their own way.

Am I comparing them to the Christ? No. Jesus came to grant life eternal to all those who would accept Him into their hearts and repent of their sins. He promises to wash them white as snow as far as their sins go, but I am saying that these men and women are taking a chance of laying down their lives for us as well. The one life they have while here on earth. I just happen to believe that is pretty awesome. I love our LORD. I love our military, also. May God bless them and you this Christmay day.

Oh my! Where did the time go? I must conclude with this:

2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to his own town to register.

4So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest,

and on earth peace to men on

whom his favor rests.”

15When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Luke 2:1-20

Merry Christmas, and God bless you each and every one. I treasure you dearly. Stay safe, Morgan, and a special Merry Christmas to you. 😉

    No matter how much we enjoy giving and receiving gifts, eating large, and spending time with our loved ones; there would be NO reason for the government to completely shut down, for the mail to be overloaded, for that special glow in our hearts if Jesus had not been born into this world to sacrifice Himself so that we may be saved. Just think about that this Christmas Day, because, for most of us, it is not our birthday! 😉

    There is nothing I can think of that is more delightful than that of a newborn child. Don’t forget to take the time to smell the roses, notice the homeless and hungry, praise your brother/sister when they do something well, etc.

    I realize that not everyone is a Christian. So what and why are celebrating? Could it be the peace and goodwill toward men that is filling the air? That’s okay. I much prefer it myself. You don’t need a reason to celebrate, just don’t try to take away mine and we’ll get along divinely. Otherwise, we are going to bump heads.

    If my writing about my beliefs bothers you, tough. May I suggest you start your own blog? Families have members with which not everyone agrees all the time about everything. I have no expectation of my readers! It is called FREEDOM. Just be delightful about it and see if your life isn’t improved…

    This is an open trackback Thursday. That means that if you would like to share some of your writings, you may do so here. It does not have to do anything with the topic above.

    PLEASE CLICK ON TRACKBACK. I am having difficulty with Haloscan, so I will need to wait until they fix their problem before I can complete my task of moving the posts from there to here. I thank you for your patience. 😉

    Did I happen to mention my computer crashed today? It was really weird. Too bad we don’t make computers in America anymore. If we did, I might look around…Anyway, I think I found a way to work this. Let us see, eh? 😉

    I received this e-mail from a dear friend of mine, Gregg Jackson – author of Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies, and it is well worth sharing with my readers.

    This article by Ken Conner discusses the importance of us Christians not to sit out of this election because of the lack of respect we have been given. Remember, it was our lack of involvement that brought about the situation we find ourselves in today. Would you care to give the Communist Party 30-40 more years before you attempt to speak out again?

    Let me warn you, whatever we say after one term of them in power our speech may be considered a crime. They tried to slip into the emergency military funding HATE SPEECH. What will you do then? Hmm…

    This is an e-mail I received before the fiasco:

    Hunter warns Columbia University
    Cancel Invitation to Iranian President

    September 24, 2007 Manchester, NH…
    At 11:30 a.m. this morning Congressman Duncan Hunter is holding a Town hall Meeting at the New England College, 98 Bridge Street, Henniker, New Hampshire in the Simon center. Hunter will issue a statement directed to Columbia University and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visit.

    In a recent press conference Hunter said “To host the leader of Iran when he supports terrorists that are moving deadly roadside bombs across the Iraqi border to be used against American troops is a slap in the face for the entire 165,000 men and women in Iraq and to those that have served before them.”

    “If President Lee Bollinger follows through with this hosting of the leader of Iran, I will move in Congress to cut off every single type of Federal Funding to Columbia University. If the left-wing leaders of academia will not support our troops, they, in the very least, should not support our adversaries.”

    “This event, following the slanderous action of MoveOn.org, depicting General Petraeus as “General Betray Us,” in the New York Times represents the emergence of the extreme left-wing in American politics.”

    This is what is happening now. There are many people who have opinions about this, but the only opinions that will matter, factually, are those in the Middle East. Did this president of a university insult many more Iranians than Ahmadinejad has done? Did anyone consider the culture of the Middle East and how they would react to an insulting introduction making it possible for this Hitlarian to claim victimhood? I can answer that. Insulted.

    This is precisely why so many of us who follow the affairs of the world, not just our next door neighbor, are so adament about not allowing this facist into our country to ‘speak freely’ so that they may be better understood.

    We already understand him. He and his minions want to kill all of us. Do you not understand this? I suppose not. What they may not be aware of is that Ahmadinejad offered them to join Islam in Farsi, which is traditional to do before they murder you. See, they offer you to join their cause so that you will be ‘saved’. But who will save you? God or the devil?

    Who believes in death and who believes in life? Who came to give life, and who is the source of the many wars all over this world? It was Jesus Christ who preached life. Not muhammed. Jesus warned that many would come after Him. Are we so blind that we cannot see? So deaf that we cannot hear peple saying, “I want to kill you!” and they mean it? I shall pray for America to repent of her sins and for God to our land. I hope you will join me.

    I am going to be bold by selecting this post as my open trackback today. May God help us all.

    Dost Thou look upon thee with adorning eyes? Searching my soul for my every care. Such blessings I humbly accept with the knowledge that I am less than rags upon Thou’s sight. How merciful and graceful Thou art to me. Thou hast come at my time of desperation.

    How dost Thou know? Why dost Thou care? You are surely Omniscient and Compassionate. He has entered in again where he has no place nor right. I pray Thee, protect me. Do not allow mine enemy to find me.

    I pray, LORD, please keep watch over Morgan and his team. Crush his enemies before him, do not allow them sight before him. I pray, LORD, help him in everyway and everyday. The other two that went with him, please protect them and their teams. Even more precious, protect their families with a hedge of protection around them. Morgan and his teams as well.

    You have been doing such a magnificent job. I thank You with all of my heart. What can I do that is worth of Your grace? I have accepted Your Son, Jesus Christ, as my LORD and Saviour. I have repented of my sins. I have asked for the Holy Spirit to abide in my heart. That is all? But that is so simple!

    You have already paid the cost for my sins, and I am so sorry that I put You in that position. I thank You so much for Your love for me. I know You offer it freely for all those who will seek Your face. I pray everyone does.

    Whenever I look around and lift mine eyes up to You, I can see some of Your creation and it is good. It is beautiful. I love those mountains with snowcaps, the valleys with the green, green grass. The streams that run silently with the purest of water. Such a delight!

    I still remember to thank You for my legs, that I may walk. My lungs, that I may breathe again without tubes everywhere! The little and the big things You have blessed me with are so grand, and I thank You.

    Lastly, but certainly not leastly, I thank You for the wonderful people You have surrounded about me. They are caring, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and they all remind me of You and Your attributes. Yes, I am the most blessed person alive, and that also is due to You. Thank You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
