Ignorance

Scripture

“God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him.”

~Acts 17:30, NIV

Quote

People don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.

~Friedrich Nietzsche

I don’t normally quote Nietzsche but I did major in Philosophy at ASU and I do agree with some of the things he said even though I do not admire him as a person. If you are fearful of the truth: you need to stop reading now. This blog may make you uncomfortable.

In this months IMPRIMIS, Heather Mac Donald, who has degrees from Harvard, Cambridge and Stanford, wrote an interesting article about the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement which holds to the false premise that “racist police” are the greatest threat to young black men today. The movement has triggered violence against policemen and sent the crime rate soaring. FBI director James Comey said, “The Furguson effect has sent a ‘chilly wind’ through law enforcement and has attributed to a sharp rise in homicides and the targeting of cops.” Obama had the audacity to rebuke the director for his comments but the fact remains: violent crime is up by almost 20%. Baltimore’s per capita homicides rate last year was the highest in history. It was Milwaukee deadliest year in a decade with a 72% increase. Cleveland homicide rate increased 90%.

Every year, approximately 6,000 blacks are murdered. This number is higher than white and Hispanic combined and blacks make up only 13% of the U.S. population but who is doing the shooting? It is not the police, nor is it white civilians, it is blacks killing blacks. Black youths age 14-17 commit homicides at ten times the rate of whites and Hispanics combined. The police killed 987 civilians in 2015, half of them were white and only 27% were black. [To read Mac Donald’s full article, go to HILLSDALE.EDU and then look for the IMPRIMIS, April, 2016]

The facts above are the tip of the iceberg. Guess who is backing the Black Lives Matter [unless you are an unborn black baby] campaign? If you guessed the elite Jews, you would be right. The ACLU is the primary sponsor. Hasia Dinner, an American historian on American Jewish History wrote, “Jewish support for black causes was a way for Jews to broaden their own rights without becoming conspicuous by advocating their group interests.” The Jews want to be seen as victims, not perpetrators.  What does the ACLU, NAACP, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Congress for Racial Equality, Anti Defamation League and the National Urban league have in common. They were all founded and funded by the elite [wealthy] Jews in America. Seventy-five percent of the NAACP’s revenues come from Jews and for the first 64 years of it’s existence, the NAACP did not have a black leader; it was lead by a Jew.

One other tidbit: did you know that Martin Luther King, Jr. had a speech writer? It was a Jew by the name of Stanley Levison. What does all this mean? I will tell you tomorrow, Lord willing.

No extra: I got in late, very late.

celebrate Jesus Son of God

SCRIPTURE

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
~2 Timothy 1:7, NLT

QUOTE

Anytime we open ourselves to fear, we fall prey to deception and intimidation.

~Francis Frangipane

Years ago, M.D. had an old bulldog chained to a tree. It was a good size chain and about 20-25 feet long. I stopped by one evening late, almost dark and forgot all about the dog. I got out of my truck and started up the side-walk. All of a sudden I hear this ferocious sound and I turn just in time to make eye contact with M.D.’s bulldog. He had already launched himself and was going for the jugular, mine and right before his teeth sank into my neck, the chain caught that devil and jerked him to the ground. He went down fast and hard. I was too afraid to laugh but not too afraid to pray, immediately I thanked God for the chain. The devil has power but he is not free to do as he pleases, he is on a chain so to speak. By that I mean he can only go so far as in the case of Job. Trust me, if he had free rein, he would have destroyed Job and he would do the same to us. He would invade every aspect of our life; I’m not talking about the circumstances surrounding us, I am taking about a personal invasion. He would come in and destroy from within. But he can’t invade us because he doesn’t have permission. He cannot come in against our will. He is in the world but he is not in us and greater is He [Jesus] that is in you, than he [devil] that is in the world. That my friends is a reason to celebrate. Extra__logo-1_0

  • Beautiful day yesterday and another coming tomorrow I hope. I took a walk in the mid-day sun, it was perfect. TYJ.
  • I checked the boards yesterday, attendance Sunday was not good but offerings were great.
  • GOLDEN GIRLS meet Saturday at Cracker Barrel in Hartselle, 9:00 a.m.
  • My Aunt Cora {99 in May} is very sick. I think she is tired and ready to go home. I ran up to see her Saturday. There are only two left in Daddy’s family: Aunt Cora and Uncle Floyd who lives in Douglasville, Georgia and still drives on the interstate. I think he was born in 1924 which would make him 90.

COMMENTARY

Darrell Gilyard

Darrell Gilyard

Darrell Gilyard, does that name ring a bell? Back in the late 80’s Darrell was a homeless person living under and interstate bridge in Jacksonville, Florida. Somehow he connected with the First Baptist Church of Jacksonville through one of their outreach ministries and later joined the church. He was mentored by Dr. Jerry Vines who was the pastor at the time.  People were awed by Darrell’s communication skills and his unbelievable testimony, he became a flaming evangelist over night. He preached at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Jerry Falwell’s Old Time Gospel Hour and was even a featured speaker at the Southern Baptist Convention. I attended the Jacksonville Pastor’s conference the year Darrell made such a splash. One major problem, Darrell’s unbelievable testimony was fictitious, I guess that’s why it was unbelievable. He created the entire story, every thing about his story was fabricated. He was never homeless and he had prior theological training which explains why he learned so quickly. He was a huge embarrassment to Dr. Vines, the First Baptist Church and to all who had been deceived by the fraud.

Since that time, Darrell has refused to get out of the ministry even though he is now a convicted sex offender. Children cannot attend the church where he serves as pastor. Darrell is a gifted communicator but he has no integrity. It is vitally important that we be real. Integrity is everything.

EXTRA

  • Visitation for James Kyle Lindsey’s family is tonight from 5:00-8:00 at DBC. The CELEBRATION OF LIFE SERVICE is tomorrow at the church at 11:00. James Kyle’s body will be laid to rest at Johnson’s Chapel and the DBC family will host a dinner for Peggy, family and friends after the interment. Doug, Joe David, Wayne Penn and yours truly will be leading in the COLS.
  • GRACEGod’s Riches At Christ Expense. The LORD is to be praised for both services yesterday. I am still in awe of the LORD’s mercy and grace. I was so tired when I got up yesterday morning that I wondered if I would make it through the day. Thank God for a Sabbath, I stayed in bed almost all Sunday evening, got up showered, ran by to see Peggy and came on to the evening service. It was one of the sweetest communion services that I have been a part of and we had a fantastic crowd. It is almost surreal. God is good! We want to thank Sheila for preparing the communion table. She has done this faithfully for the past 20 years.
  • Mandy will be our host on the lunch tomorrow. Sheila had a prior commitment. It you want to help, call Mandy.
  • The mid-week service will be normal, no hot dog supper for AWANA, no AWANA at all. We all meet together one more time. We will do Chick-Fil-A. Call the office by 10:00 am Wednesday if you want to eat Wednesday Night.

The Kingdom

January 22, 2013

MyHope coming November 2013
SCRIPTURE: Jesus said, “My kingdom does not belong to this world. If it did, my servants would fight so that I would not be handed over to the Jewish leaders. No, my kingdom is not an earthly one.” [John 18:36, ERV]

QUOTE: We may be called to suffer in this life but Jesus will make it up to us. What lies ahead of us is far better than what lies behind. ~Anonymous

COMMENTARY: Hitler asked the German people to suffer with him, and for him and the Third Reich [ kingdom] would last 1,000 years. Hitler was wrong: dead wrong. The Third Reich lasted only twelve and one half years. It probably seemed longer to those who suffered under his demonic reign of terror but in light of history, twelve and a half years is not even a blip on the radio screen. They say that when he realized that he had failed and that his kingdom [Third Reich] was in total chaos and on the verge of collapse that he shrieked: “Everyone deceived me, no one told me the truth.” Contrast the way he died with the way the Jesus died: there is a world of difference. Jesus has an eternal kingdom that promises true peace. The Kingdom of Christ is one of peace with no need to use force. Love will be the rule of the day in Christ’s Kingdom.

EXTRA: Under the weather today. Headed to med-clinic to get shots. Real bad head cold. Michelle Burcham [Roger and Dot’s daughter in law] is in critical condition at DGH. They are going to try to do a surgery today at noon. This family needs your prayers. I think Gary got to go home but I am not sure.
