Seven Short Parables Of King Solomon Of Israel

 

Some of these can make a person just sit and think, some are written just to make you smile. Either way the seven combined should not take but about two or three minutes to read. I hope you have a great day.

 

  1. Proverbs 25: 21-22      If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink: For you shall heap coal of fire upon his head, and the Lord will reward you.
  2. Proverbs 4:18     But the footpath of the just is as a shining light, it shines brighter and brighter unto that perfect day.
  3. Proverbs 13:22    A good man leaves and inheritance to his children’s children.
  4. Proverbs 14: 7     Leave the presence of a foolish man when you perceive there is no knowledge in his words.
  5. Proverbs 14:29   He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalts folly.
  6. Proverbs 16:3     Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.
  7. Proverbs 17:15    He that justifies the wicked and condemns the just, even they are both an abomination to the Lord.

“Islam may have bad stuff. But what about the crusades?!!”

In most cases, whenever negative press and attention is drawn towards Islam, there are a variety of tactics utilized to divert attention. When questions are raised over the religion’s intentions and moral value, a common tactic used by the apologists of Islamic terrorism, including Barrack Hussein Obama, is to distract the audience, by bringing into discussion the Crusades. The Crusades are brought up so repetitively that an uneducated individual, with no meaningful knowledge of history, would be forgiven for believing that these events took place recently in the 20th century. However, despite Obama’s treacherous dialogue, the final Crusade ended in 1291, meaning that any modern attempts to use these events as evidence for violent teachings in Christianity, in an effort to discredit the dangers posed by Islam, is entirely disingenuous.

Let me be clear, I am happy to condemn the negative features of the Crusades, as well as the practices of radical Christianity, and its at times barbaric…

Islamophobia

Islamophobia, please consider reading this article I have forwarded to you here. Please just read, and think, this should only take about 2 or 3 minutes of your time. Thank You,

I am sure we are all familiar with the cringeworthy, misleading, and deceptive slur known as Islamophobia. I have always looked upon the term with great distain, and the attempts made by the religion of permanent offence, to portray Muslims as the eternal victim.

But after recent readings, I know more about the actual origins of the phrase ‘Islamophobia’, and I am more hostile towards it than ever. ‘Islamophobia’, did not even exist until the 1990’s. It was developed by the International institution for Islamic thought, a self described ‘Islamic academic and cultural institution’. This organisation was formed by members of the Islamo-Supremacist Muslim Brotherhood. Abdur- Rahman Muhammed, a former member of the IIIT described the origins of Islamophobia, stating; “This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics”.

Fast track 20 years, and…

Has President Erdogan Of Turkey Gotten His People Into A War With Everyone?

 

This past Wednesday a car bomb went off in the Capital of Turkey that was directed toward a passing bus of military personnel.  The death toll last I heard was at 28. On Thursday their President Mr. Erdogan was warning President Putin that (he) Turkey would hold Russia responsible for any acts of terrorism within Turkeys borders. On Friday a splinter group of a Kurdish fighting force claimed ‘credit’ for those people’s deaths. It seems that there are several different Kurdish fighting forces of which it seems President Erdogan is at war with all of them even though about 20% of the Turkish population are Kurdish. Today the Turkish Prime Minister Mr. Ahmet Davutoglu called on the U.S. for unconditional support against the Kurd’s in Turkey’s fight against terrorism. Both Turkey and the U.S. are members of NATO yet the reality is that the Kurdish people have endured heavy losses in their fight against ISIS even though Turkey and Russia have bombed their fighters. So, now a Kurdish group has unfortunately enraged at least 28 families in Turkey. Whom is it in the region that President Erdogan hasn’t ticked off? Syria, Iran, and Russia are at war with Turkey, ISIS, the Kurd’s and Shiite Islam, did I miss anyone? Sometimes it seems that President Erdogan is simply jealous of Russia’s President Putin and wants to get into a shoe-size measuring contest. Dictators, Kong size ego’s, and religion based murders can make a whole region go boom, big time. Why have war when we could all have peace, or, is it why have peace when you can have war? It is just my outside view looking in and I can only go by what I see and hear on the different news programs but it does seem that President Erdogan through his aggression policies are in the process of tearing the beautiful country of Turkey apart at her seams.

 

Why Is Telling The Truth Such An Unacceptable Thing To Do These Days?

 

Does it bother you that so many people lie so easily today? Does it seem to you that there are people who go out of their way on an issue just so they can tell a lie instead of the truth? Which bothers you the most, when you are being lied to and you know it as the words are being spoken, or when you are lied to but don’t find out about it until later? How about when your own children lie to you, or how about when other people’s children do it to you? Then of course there is the reality of having a spouse whom will lie to you while looking you straight in the eyes, it’s always fun having a spouse like that. How about your neighbor, your boss, co-workers, politicians, or even the evening news anchors, do they ever lie to you/us? Do they lie to us daily? Or do they only lie when they open their mouth?

 

I have come across some folks in my life who had the opinion that if someone told them something and that answer turned out to be wrong then that meant they were lied to. Being wrong about something, even when you personally believe something to be true when you said it, does not mean that you lied when you spoke, it just means that you were wrong on that issue. How do we ever figure our what truth is when so many lie today using their lies as some kind of stupid childish game? It is easy to say that lairs have no integrity, but, do you ever lie on purpose? If you are a person whom says they are a moral, faithful person, a good Christian, do people know you to be a liar also? If we are a liar, are we really a good person, a faith filled person, a moral person or a real Christian? One of the biggest problems with Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is not that he is a liar, it is that he is a man who lies a lot, on purpose for the means to deceive, as he holds a Bible in his hand and calls himself a Christian. He is the type of “warm water” that Jesus spoke of in Revelation as it is this type of person that Mr. Cruz is that helps in giving all of Christianity, thus Jesus, a bad name.

 

Truth, or truthfulness by definition means the true actual state of a matter, in other words, 100% truth. Another good definition about truth is that it conforms with fact/reality, something that is verifiable. The word truth as an idiom: reality, fact, actually. When I went to look the word truth up in the index of my KJV Bible the sub-title reads “that which agrees with final reality”. In the Bible verse of John 14:6 Jesus is quoted as saying “I am the truth, and the life: no man can come to the Father but through me”. There is only one real truth and that is the pure truth according to Jesus for He is Truth. If my statements do not agree with the Truth that Jesus has given to all people of the Earth through the Holy Spirit inspired Word of God, then I am either incorrect, or I have lied to you. Personally I don’t think there is anything on this planet that is worth lying about. (I speak this as a broken down old man with few days left so earthly treasures mean little to me) Am I wrong sometimes, of course I am, I’m just a human. But, one thing I will never do is to lie to you here on this blog. What good is any blog that lies to people? What good is a blog that is about Truth, if I would ever mislead you on purpose? When you mislead someone on purpose that is a lie after all isn’t it? I hope for your own Souls sake that you just answered that question with a yes.

Pope Francis, Donald Trump, And Faith

 

Yesterday it appears that as an answer to a question about Mr. Trump and his being a Christian the Pope said that “Donald Trump is not a Christian”. Today in response Mr. Trump said it was “disgusting” that the Pope would say such a thing as that. Folks think about what just happened for a moment, how would you feel if the Pope himself verbally said that about your faith to the media? I am not a Catholic, never have been, but I am a Christian. When I thought this question to myself the first thing I did was to let out a little chuckle, then the first word I thought of was ‘really’. After thinking about it for a few moments I concluded that if the Pope or any other famous person called me out like that concerning my faith I would demand (I know that wouldn’t mean anything to anyone) a face to face meeting. I looked in the index of my KJV Bible for the word faith and there were many many examples. My eyes wandered down the page to the word faithfulness which had the inscription “making faith a reality in one’s life”. So to be more up to date I checked into the dictionary to check to see what their version of the word faith/faithfulness is. It read under the word faith: Confidence or trust in a person or thing and, belief that is not based on proof. Under faithfulness it read: Strict or thorough in the performance of duty. True to ones word, promises, vows, etc…

So, is Donald Trump a Christian? Is the Pope a Christian? Gods representative on Earth? Does Mr. Trump live a God led life? Does any of us? Judging degrees of other people’s faith or lack there of is a slippery slope that I try to turn over to the one true Judge because I am personally not interested in being a Judge of anyone. When my old mind in my dreams remembers sins committed, long forgotten, buried deep in our minds, how many still remain? I am not worthy to judge, are you? Is Mr. Trump or the Pope? This post like in most of my post I am just trying to get folks to think a little bit about these issues. So, what do you personally think about this flap between the Pope and Mr. Trump?

Hate Hate Fire Fire Everywhere These Day’s It Seems

 

Folks are we really living in a time that is more dangerous than in times in even our own personal past histories? Or, maybe these times are no different from any others, it only seems that way because of the more and better technology we have at our fingertips today? There is a lot of hate in the world today, but hasn’t this been so since the creation of us gentiles? It does appear that most of the worlds biggest conflicts have at least some religion base to it these days. Race is not the biggest issue in most wars today but there are the instances where a race ties themselves to a certain religion like we connect Muslim people as being Islamic because it seems to be a fit in most cases. That is not Islamophobe, it is a reality issue, if you meet a person who is from Mexico or Latin America do you not assume that their religion is Catholic? Are most people you meet here in America that are from India, don’t most folks tend to assume that they are of the Hindu faith? It seems that all over the globe there are wars and simmering conflicts. People do not tend to say to their own heart about the person they are getting ready to slaughter, O how I love you! As long as we have rampant hate, race toward race or religion toward religion, the fires will burn until they consume both us and those who come after us. This is true because true hate is a consuming fire even after all is under their command. Everyone on Earth has the God-given right to protect themselves and their families but absolutely no one on Earth has the right to be the aggressor. No aggressor, no need to defend, equals no more hate caused deaths or injuries.

 

 

China Warns Australia About The South China Sea

 

 

This post is my thoughts on an article I read this morning off of Reuters News line concerning an upcoming visit from Australia’s Foreign Minister Ms. Julie Bishop to Beijing China. The spokesman for China’s Foreign Minister, Mr. Hong Lei said he believes Australia “understands” China’s position on the South China Sea dispute with the government of the Philippines. Mr. Lei when speaking about Australia told the Australian government they “ought not avoid this reality”.

 

Are you paying any attention to the events going on concerning the territory ‘ownership’ of the South China Sea. I say this right now, the whole world ought to be paying close attention because it affects most everyone on the planet. The man-made islands that the Chinese government have ‘reclaimed’ in the South China Sea have now totaled more than 2,900 acres of land. Folks airport runways are already on the islands and missiles have been spotted on one of them already. (which China did not deny) Folks if you are not familiar with the situation, all nations on the globe have a 12 mile buffer-zone from the edge of their shores and after that you are then in international waters. These international waters are a free shipping zone, no country owns these waters. China’s government has made it plain what their goals and opinions are and that is exactly what they are going to do unless the worlds governments find a way to stop them. In case you weren’t aware of it, China claims all rights to the airways above the South China Seas as well. Over five-trillion dollars worth of trade go through those waters every year, China could stop that flow of goods or impose taxes on the whole world’s goods to be allowed to cross those waters.

 

The Philippines has filed a case against China at the Hague concerning China intruding on their sea borders. The government of China has forcefully denounced this case saying that they will not “recognize” it. There are many other nations in the region who have similar claims pending against China for the same reasons so it is not just the Philippines it is also Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam and Japan. China views the case that has been brought before the Hague as a “contravention of international law”. Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop this week was quoted as saying her government felt that the Philippines had the right to take their case to the Hague. It is this issue that got Ms. Bishop graced with China’s Regal chastisement. Isn’t it odd how such a thing as honesty can just tick some folks off?

 

American President Obama has also come under verbal ire from Beijing for sending American military aircraft and Naval ships near those islands. Is this an international game of chicken? No, honestly I don’t think so. The business, military and the very-low officials that I have ever met in my lifetime have all been very secretive, even of things that seemed to have no matter. I have never noticed the government of China to be a bluffer, have you? China has a very strong structured leadership, Russia’s top-tier leaders are strong, Americas government plays politics, may God help us all.

 

My Favorite Kitty Cat Done Packed Her Bags And Left

 

This note is to Ms. Oreo’s wicked Step-Mom who would torture her when I wasn’t home by such cruel measures as tuna deprivation. You’re the reason she packed her bag, hopped the first Freight-shaker with a kitty-cat purr, Hollywood bound. I hear she married a cat named Garfield when she got settled in, it’s said they met on a casting couch, how purr-fect. Heard things were going great until she smelled some of her tuna on his breath. They buried him three days ago. Now she’s got her twenty-two pounds east bound and down running from the fuzz…

Today Is The Past: As We Breathe It

To the days that have passed, with us along for the ride

A salute to all of our yesterdays, with our smiles up or down

Spend little time on the stripes received, that we’ve not earned

Smiles on faces seen, but on some, with time, names forgotten

One’s own bed, finally its peaceful, quiet, snuggle in, smile, cry, pray

Loved ones, one by one, through time, left our arms, not our hearts

Snapshots of peaceful times, some on mind, some caught on print

Years gone by, do our memories really fade, like the whisper of time

Patriarch in your forties, not something ever longed for, or wanted to see

Your children, and now theirs grownup, to ignore you ever breathed

Things we have done wrong, own them, sometimes, some peace will follow

Yesterdays ill’s, we can’t hit replay, change mistakes or the hearts broken

History is today, don’t be the butt of tomorrows viral You Tube joke

Yesterday is now our past, good or bad it’s over with, like breath, it’s gone

Mistakes can haunt the human brain till we let them put us in a grave

We all could be dancing the Texas two-step tomorrow, with God’s Angels

Such bliss we seek depends on today, not the shadows of our past, unchangeable

We all choose our path, I hear the kisses of the Angels down in the holler are really smoking!
