Adam sinned once and transformed the world!
Everything you and I do, leaves it’s imprint on the world, however small or large, we make changes and influence those around us. What do those who see you see? If you believe in God, let them see Him in you, let His light shine. No matter what the world throws at you, in the end, you win because God wrote the book, and you are in it!
My passion for protecting and preserving freedom is a gift that comes to me from my grandfather, an immigrant who brought my father to this country and whose well-weathered hands mined coal in Southwestern Pennsylvania until he was 72. He left the totalitarian regime of Mussolini‘s Italy to bring his family to freedom.
He worked hard and committed himself to creating a better life for his children and grandchildren. He taught me how to treasure the gift of freedom, to have faith in God’s grace, to achieve what American liberty offers to those who work hard and to love and support a family. The Pennsylvania town my grandfather called home is just a few miles down the road from the field where Flight 93 crashed on that beautiful, blue-sky September day; a day when radical jihadists declared war on America, in America, on our own soil. The passengers and crew bravely stood up for freedom. Read the rest at Real Clear World…..
This article at Grumpy Opinions is one of the best articles about the Obama administration and the state of affairs that we are in with them, that I have read yet. It is well worth your time. I have posted an excerpt, but the article is much longer and quite complete. Please read and share on FB & Twitter. God bless! From Grumpy Opinions!
January 29 through the 31st, 5% of the sheriffs in America are in Las Vegas Nevada, learning how to tell the Federal government agents to pack sand and get out of town. 20% of the 50 United States of America have been presented with lawsuits and or legal filings challenging the eligibility of Barack Obama to be on the ballot for the 2012 election.
Congressional representative Allen West summed up the American people’s feelings for the Obama administration today when he told Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to, “Get the hell out of The United States of America!”. His talk can be seen here.
There is enough evidence presented to Congress to arrest him and prosecute him for an Act of War against the nation of Mexico, accessory to murder of thousands of innocent citizens in Mexico and America as well as the murder of United States Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Resign?? Besides sending illegal guns to Mexico, Holder and his associates sold guns to criminal street gangs inside the United States where the guns will be used inside the United States. It will take years to find the thousands of guns these criminals sold to killers. Read the rest at Grumpy Opinions
I am saying that it is time for the churches to throw off the chains that they have voluntarily let be placed around them and to speak up, get out on the streets and tell the truth. It was the churches that put a stop to slavery, that stood with Martin Luther King Jr. in the civil rights marches. Since then they have accepted the advantage of not paying taxes by stopping speaking and standing for what is right. They have allowed themselves to be chained and those who are against us are tightening those chains everyday, from taking God out of the schools to telling veterans that they can not have a prayer that mentions Jesus Christ at the National Cemetery.
Whitfield and other pastors did not stand by and keep their mouths closed. They were the ones standing in the forefront and telling people what was going on. They were participating and leading their citizens, because they were standing for what they thought was right in God’s eyes.
It is time for our pastors to realize that they are responsible to God and the people that they serve, and not to the government. It is time for responsible Christians to stand for what is right, and not to let a government that is hostile to Christianity, dictate what we can teach, believe, practice or anything else. Above all God must come first, and if we continue to bow our heads to government, they become God and it is time to stand up.
Jesus didn’t give his life in the ultimate sacrifice for the churches to become temples. He came to save the whole world. We are not just to practice Christianity within the confines of the Church sanctuary. But that is how it is being practiced today. We go to church when we are supposed to, we worship and then go home. We don’t speak out when we are told that we can’t have God in the schools or in any public place. This is not how this country was founded, and above all else this is not what Jesus sacrificed for.
We have the responsibility to spread Christianity throughout the world, and yet we let a mortal government tell us what we can say and where we can say it? This is not Christianity, this is religion by government decree, something to simply pacify the people and keep them in their place. Is this what you want? Is this what you are going to stand before God and say that you agreed with? Why?
When did we stop being followers of Christ? Would Christ stop his message because the government didn’t agree with it? He showed us that He wouldn’t and He didn’t. He brought us the message that God wanted Him to bring and told us that this is what we were to continue.
Instead we have let ourselves be pushed in simply using our Church buildings as a sanctuary and thinking that this is what they are there for. It is not! It is a place to encourage others, to teach, to let the glory of God enter, to multiply the force if you will. But it doesn’t end there, and it is not what Jesus wanted us to do.
“Don’t hide your light under a basket”, how many times have you heard this? But isn’t that what we are doing? We are using the Church as the basket, we are hiding, literally. We are letting ourselves be made prisoners of a government that has no desire for people to care about God or the principle that the Bible teaches.
We are allowing ourselves to be chained and it is time that we throw off those chains. God did not intend for us to be slaves, not to any government whose desire is to force us to do their will, and not His. God will judge us by our actions and one of the first things He will probably ask is why we sold ourselves back into slavery when He gave His only begotten Son to free us.
believe life is precious and that
all life deserves care, the
article below may very well
turn your stomach. It did
mine! It strikes me as odd that
the very same people who
believe that you should not kill
animals for food, and that
trees have souls, seem to feel
that our children that are not
up to their par mentally, are
only worth keeping alive for
one reason. That reason seems
to be as a possible organ
This is what happens when you have no belief in God and no value for the life of humans. This is the same attitude that you can kill a baby in the womb at anytime. This is the same attitude that thinks that it is okay to send men and women to war just to destroy someone that doesn’t fit their idea of a good ruler. This is also the attitude of people who will strap bombs to women and children in order to kill as many people as they can.
And this my friends is the attitude of the people that are in power in the government today. We can never change this country or restore it to it’s former glory with this kind of attitude and this kind of people in power. Read the excerpt below and go to the Blaze to read the rest:
KILLING SOMEONE WITH
‘NO AUTONOMY LEFT’ IS NOT
Posted on January 30, 2012 at 9:49am by Liz Klimas
What has Glenn Beck so fired up that he said on his radio show “If this doesn’t wake your a** up this morning, then nothing will?” How about this quote from prominent bioethicists comparing killing a human being to pulling weeds from a garden.
Two bioethicists — one from Duke University, the other from the National Institute of Health — bring up the question “What makes killing wrong?” in the latest issue of the Journal of Medical Ethics. Using their definition of killing, the authors conclude if the person is “universally and irreversibly disabled” and has “no abilities to lose” then killing them to take organs for donation in order to save the lives of others should not be considered morally wrong.
Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, a professor of practical ethics from Duke, and Franklin Miller, a senior faculty member in the NIH Department of Bioethics, state in their abstract ”What makes an act of killing morally wrong is not that the act causes loss of life or consciousness but rather that the act causes loss of all remaining abilities.“ They argue that if no abilities remain then the ”dead donor rule,” which is the ethical practice that a person must be declared dead before removing vital organs, should apply to patients whose hearts have stopped and are being removed from a respirator.
This discussion has been ongoing for several years and continues with this article. BioEdge, a publication discussing bioethical news,brings a few segments from the subscription-only journal in which Sinnott-Armstrong and Miller publish their opinion. BioEdge reports that the authors are seeking to make a case for organ donation after cardiac death when a person is taken off of a respirator. Once off the respirator, the person’s organs would be immediately harvested, but even at this point, BioEdge states, Sinnott-Armstrong and Miller believe the person is not yet dead because there is the possibility that his or her heart could start beating again.

I’d Like To Point You In a NEW Direction…REECESRAINBOW.ORG
Originally posted on Gabriel's Precious Journey:
I want to alert you to a very important mission that has been in progress for five years now. It is imperative that this get out into the general public. Whether or not a person believes a child with Down Syndrome has a right to life is immaterial when the child is here and is being institutionalized at the age of 4, 5, or 6 years old for simply having Down Syndrome. For whatever the reason, parents are giving up their precious children. It could be they are poor and don’t have the ability to take care of them. It could be misinformation regarding the possibilities of what life could be like for these children. It could be…ANYTHING. In country after country, children are being left by banks of rivers, abandoned in alleys, hospitals, with neighbors, etc. Parents are walking away from their children. These children have only known the “institution”. They have only known the “homes” for the unwanted…Orphanages. Many, many children are being sent to ADULT institutions (many have terrible reputations) at these tender ages. Once they get there…they are not in even the modest hands of the baby homes. These kids are in Russia, Ukraine, South America, Japan…you name the country, it’s almost assuredly filled with special needs kids. They don’t deserve this life dealt them. I’ve tried already and haven’t met the criteria (financial) to adopt but our home surely beats (hands down), living in a place of such desperation.
Reece’s Rainbow is founded by a mom who has a little boy (Reece) that happens to have Down Syndrome. She says no matter how horrible her day or what was going on, when she sat down with Reece, he brought the Rainbow back to her. He made her heart leap and her soul spring to life. You don’t understand the impact of these children until you personally are in their presence. Truly, even then you won’t see the amazing attributes and special spirit that is housed in the bodies of what we wrongly have called retards or considered less than human. They are more human than I am. Gabriel is more what God intended than I am. God wants us to trust, to love…to see the beauty in everything. He wants us to be kind and loving; to be helpful, joyful. He wanted the innocence but that’s not what he has of the human race…save one grace…kids like these. Kids who love unconditionally. Kids who delight in small things. Kids who are nonpretentious…non egotistical. Gabriel can be himself and he is ok with it. You can be yourself around him and he’d love you just the same. I know Reece is the same way. Now, of course they have feelings. You can hurt them…and badly. But they are forgiving.
I have brought you here to tell you about Reece’s Rainbow. I am asking that you go to their website and read their stories, look at the children, become invested in a child. If it strikes your soul and you have the love and the means, then PLEASE, PLEASE go through the effort and bring one home to their forever mom and dad. If you don’t want to or cannot adopt, consider sponsoring and advocating for a child there. Reece’s Rainbow partners with individuals, companies and other nonprofit organizations to raise awareness of the horrible plight of these children outside of the US. Reece’s Rainbow also raises the adoption fees (sometimes it’s 100 percent, sometimes not, depending on people like you and me) and asks their warriors to do the same. There are many ways to help. Get active. Become a mommy or a daddy. Donate money to a child or children’s fund for adoption. Sponsor and/or advocate. Noone deserves a life in an institution for being less than perfect (but who are we to say they are not perfect creations) when we all know their potential, and we all know the capacity for love in their hearts. No child, no matter how fragile or disabled deserves a life of desperation.

I USE STARTPAGE AS MY SEARCH ENGINE. YOU SHOULD TOO. Is your e-mail is run by google?
I keep returning to a hard choice: Is my wish to be “web dead” with my present use of a pseudonym and no personal info in a “profile” pg sufficient to keep the intruders off track? I adamantly refuse to get a Facebook account; though some of my patriot connections are on Facebook. The new attack on ALIPAC only confirms my stance about privacy.

The Santorums have spoken movingly throughout their campaign about Bella, who was born with Trisomy 18, and recently had surgery.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:
The three-year-old daughter of Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has been admitted to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the candidate has cancelled his Sunday morning campaign events to be at her side.
Santorum campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley said Saturday night that the former Pennsylvania senator and his wife, Karen, were with Bella at CHOP. Gidley said Santorum planned to return to campaigning as soon as possible in Florida, where the Republican primary is Tuesday.
Bella Santorum has Trisomy 18, a genetic condition caused by the presence of all or part of an extra 18th chromosome. Bella was not expected to survive until her first birthday and concerns over her health have canceled previous Santorum campaign events.
During his campaign, Santorum and his wife have spoken openly about the challenges and rewards of raising a child with such a condition. Read the rest at Michelle Malkin
