I was speaking with a Pastor last Thursday who defended his position that the Jews killed Jesus. I asked, have you ever been to synagogue? Have you ever heard how the Jewish people teach the scriptures that you glean from every Sunday before your congregation, after all, they wrote them? His answer was...no. I have been to several synagogues whether, Orthodox, Reformed, Conservative, etc, etc. I have been welcomed, quizzed, a curiosity, and confronted by those wondering if I had a bomb! All in all, my experience with Jewish people have been some of the best experiences of my life. Primarily religious Jews to be certain have been wonderful. I have had the occasion to meet a few Jews that I would not dignify a relationship with but, then, we all know people like that, huh?
The book, "Five Biblical Portraits" was a game changer for me. The book peered into the character of five men who YHVH appointed to do something amazing that humanity continues to discuss. The book visualizes (for the person who has imagination) how these men were not so different then all of us. The anger, despair, foolishness, successes and failures affected how they saw life and or how they grew to understand their own. The men were shaped by circumstance as well as the commission of YHVH
Juxtaposed the difficulty, the battles and never ending fight in order to realize the nation of Israel to that of modern day Christianity and the contrast becomes imbecilic. Obvious elaboration is required because I just offended every "Christ follower" reading this.
|Alleged Bundy cattle destroyed by the Government|
A cattle rancher is fighting the Government who has allegedly killed and mutilated his cattle over a civil matter. The government against a civilian. A handful of freedom loving Americans are fighting along side of this rancher and his family while politicians are calling him a terrorist. Excuse me? http://bundyranch.blogspot.com/
Men are marrying men, our nation is allowing this? As a result the very purpose of life is now disfigured, marred with self serving sexual indulgence. Men are demanding to be abnormal and the government is supportive. We, as a nation are being led into exactly what we have all been taught for centuries, an anti system comprised of anti-truth.
Our debt is as far away from Biblical truth as is the life and times of King David who secured a nation because of biblical truth......http://www.usdebtclock.org/#
Sixty Million Americans were murdered in the womb and now babies are being used to fuel hospitals. A modern day twist on the fires of Molech!
Nope, I am not an angry black man...I am a Godly man angry at what we promote/allow. Please leave your stereo-typed mentality at the foot of your worldly leaders. I am angry at how our Creator is ignored. To the "Christ Follower" who would criticize me for not being loving, kind and Christ like....
When the Messiah returns he is coming with a two edged sword, covered in blood, leading an army to war!
I wanted to re-read the book "Five Biblical Portraits" because I remember feeling the lives of these men when I first read this book....I refuse to collapse like King Saul. I love how Jonah reconsidered even when he wanted Nineveh's destruction and how the prophets languished over the pain of prophesying death to a nation......Each man faced the dilemma of not keeping covenant and the consequences of doing so.
I look out into a world that has thrown the covenants into the abyss...yes, I am angry. The odd thing to me is how few a number we are!
I read these "40 Quotes" [CLICK HERE] yesterday of Barack Obama and thought...Far too many Americans support this person. His celebratory love for Islam is almost orgasmic according to his quotes...Below are women who would disagree with the president of the United States of America if they were not voiceless due to Islam.
