"The West Antarctic ice sheet has been melting at it's current pace for 7,600 years."
"It may be gone in another 7,000 years IF ANOTHER ICE AGE DOESN'T INTERVENE!"
Howard Conway, University of Washington.
Put that in your environmentalist pipe and smoke it!

Actual newspaper headlines.
"Something went wrong in jet crash, expert says." (I could have told them that and saved them the consultant fee.)

"Astronaut takes blame for gas in spacecraft." (Beans, beans.)

There is no malice towards anyone in regards to scriptual quotations on this blog in response to news articles about a "gay" bishop.

"We ask you, brothers, to respect those who are working hard among you, those who are guiding you in the Lord and confronting you in order to help you change. Treat them with the highest regard and love because of the work they are doing. Live at peace among yourselves; but we urge you, brothers, to confront those who are lazy, your aim being to help them change, to encourage the timid, to assist the weak, and to be patient with everyone."

"See that no one repays evil with evil; on the contrary, always try to do good to each other, indeed, to everyone."

"Always be joyful. Pray regularly. In everything give thanks, for this is what God wants from you who are united with Christ Jesus."

"Don''t quench the spirit, don't despise inspired messages. But do test everything. Hold on to what is good, but keep away from every form of evil."
1 Thessalonians 5:11-22

I guess this means I even need to be good to control freaks, environmentalists and left wing socialist politicians.

Oh well !!

Shalom, Y'all

The matter of being a "Gay" priest in the words of God as given to us by the inspired word:

Therefore, do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey it's evil desires."Do not offer the parts your body to sin, as instruments of wickednes, but rather yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to Hiom as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace."
Romans 6:12-14 (NIV)

My response to the Bishops who were interviewd on Fox News and made statements about the interpretations of different denominations as they relate to homosexual acts.
These words from the bible are simple enough for a dumb, un-educated old truck driver to understand; it is not open to interpretation. It says what it says!

"It is God's will that you should be sactified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you His Holy Spirit."
1 Thessalonians 4: 3-8 (NIV)

Never forget what happened to Sodom and Gamora.
God does not change.

Shalom, Y'all

More comments regarding the promotion of a homosexual (gay)priest to Bishop:
"You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed."
"Oh that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees."
"Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands."
Psalm 119:4-6

On a lighter note:
Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

I will not obsess. I will not obsess. I will not obsess. I will not obsess.

Amusing food for thought:

Why do they put braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?

Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?

Some of the most dishonest people on the planet are environmental wackos and homosexuals. They pervert the language to further their agenda and dishonestly change the meanings of words to hide that agenda. Actually, in the case of homosexuals, to hide their sin.
Words have meaning. The word gay, according to the dictionary, means; lighthearted, joyous. It has no connection with homosexuality.
The Episcopal Church is currently engaged in heated debate over whether or not the church should promote a gay (homosexual) priest to the post of Bishop.
I have no axe to grind with Episcopaliens or any other organized group of Christians as long as they base their practices on scriptural truths.
Second Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is God Breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousnes, so that the man may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (NIV)
First of all, when a man and woman are married, they make a vow between God and man to love, cherish,.........'til death they do part.
A priest who recogonizes that he has homosexual tendencies and leaves his wife to persue them with his male partner has broken his vow rather than supress the tendency and is a liar.!
Who would want a Bishop who is a known liar?
It's a mistery to me.
Romans 1:20-32 describes very well God's perspective on homosexuality and other sins. The subject is prefaced in verse 18: "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlesness and wickedness of men who supress the truth by their wickedness."
In regards to sexual perversion, Romans one goes on to say in verse 27 "In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with orther men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversions." (NIV)
The Old Testament is more explicit. Deuteronomy 22:5 instructed God's people that even if a woman were to wear man's clothing, or a man to wear women's clothing, it is detestable to God.
Either the people engaged in the debate are ignorant of the scriptures or they have rationalized away it's importance.
If the Episcopal Church and it's beliefs and practices are based on the inspired word of God, there should be no debate. Just abide by that written word and don't promote a liar and pervert.
Instead, fire him!!

Shalom, Y'all

"Only the open gate can receive visitors.
Only the open hand can receive gifts.
Only the open mind can receive wisedom.
Only the open heart can receive love."

Thomas A. Edison

It is interesting that so many Black people cry discrimination for whatever reason while they create so many Black only institutions.
Can you imagine a Congressional White (Black) caucus?
United White (Negro) college fund?
Lilly White (Jet) magazine?
White (Black) Entertainment Television?
Miss White (Black) America?

Why are there colleges which only admit Black Students?
Why are there benches on the campus of major university where only Black people are supposed to sit?
Why are Black people who become successful labeled "Too White?"

Can't we all just be Americans?
I believe it will only be possible when "leaders" of the "Black" community stop being so racist.

"WE must make a great difference between God's word and the word of man. A man's word is a little sound that flies into the air and soon vanishes; but the word of God is greater than heaven and earth."
