Abortion Providers (Murder Facilitators) Flush Live Baby;Submerge Baby In Toxic Solution

A Pennsylvania jury will soon render a verdict on whether abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell murdered four babies who survived abortions as well as a woman who was one of his patients, but a new series of videos from Live Action suggest that Gosnell’s actions are not out of the mainstream.
Live Action President Lila Rose told WND her group has already released two videos showing abortion providers in New York City and Washington, D.C., explaining how they would do nothing to help a baby who survived an abortion to survive.
The 10-year Planned Parenthood adviser tells an undercover Live Action investigator that if she were to deliver her baby alive while at home between the stages in her two-day abortion, that she should just “flush it.”

Biblical and blessed marriage


Gen 2:18  Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him." 
Gen 2:19  Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
Gen 2:20  The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
Gen 2:21  So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
Gen 2:22  The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 
Gen 2:23  The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man." 
Gen 2:24  For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 
Gen 2:25  And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. 


Biblical Wisdom vs. Worldly "Wisdom" Scriptural Passages


Biblical wisdom versus worldly "wisdom" is demonstrated by these passages. They are mutually exclusive, after all, truth by definition cannot be false. The foundation of biblical truth and the world's wisdom are polar opposites. For the Christian, the world has no wisdom that is Christ-centered, fully true, nor all-wise, nor of peace. Rather the world's wisdom is earthly, demonic, deadly, unwise, sinful, feeds the sin nature, is unable to deal with the wicked heart of man, and is temporal. Only in Christ is all the wealth of wisdom and knowledge and truth. Its Christ or the world; never both.


Psa 1:1  How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 

Psa 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. 
Psa 1:3  He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.
Psa 1:4  The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
Psa 1:5  Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
Psa 1:6  For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish.


Jer 17:5  Thus says the LORD, "Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the LORD. 
Jer 17:6  "For he will be like a bush in the desert And will not see when prosperity comes, But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, A land of salt without inhabitant.
Jer 17:7  "Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD. 
Jer 17:8  "For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit. 
Jer 17:9  "The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
Jer 17:10  "I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds. 

Jas 3:13  Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. 
Jas 3:14  But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 
Jas 3:15  This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 
Jas 3:16  For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. 
Jas 3:17  But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. 
Jas 3:18  And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. 

Col 2:2  that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God's mystery, that is, Christ Himself, 
Col 2:3  in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 
Col 2:4  I say this so that no one will delude you with persuasive argument. 

Col 2:6  Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 
Col 2:7  having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. 
Col 2:8  See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. 
Col 2:9  For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form
Col 2:10  and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority

Col 2:18  Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, 
Col 2:19  and not holding fast to the head, from whom the entire body, being supplied and held together by the joints and ligaments, grows with a growth which is from God. 
Col 2:20  If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as, 
Col 2:21  "Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!" 
Col 2:22  (which all refer to things destined to perish with use)--in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men? 
Col 2:23  These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence. 

Col 3:1  Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 
Col 3:2  Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 
Col 3:3  For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 
Col 3:4  When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. 
Col 3:5  Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. 

Rom 12:2  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. 

Eph 4:17  So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, 
Eph 4:18  being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; 
Eph 4:19  and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness. 
Eph 4:20  But you did not learn Christ in this way, 
Eph 4:21  if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 
Eph 4:22  that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 
Eph 4:23  and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 
Eph 4:24  and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. 

1Co 2:2  For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 
1Co 2:3  I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 
1Co 2:4  and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 
1Co 2:5  so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. 
1Co 2:6  Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away
1Co 2:7  but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 

1Co 1:18  For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 
1Co 1:19  For it is written, "I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE, AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE." 
1Co 1:20  Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 
1Co 1:21  For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 
1Co 1:22  For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; 
1Co 1:23  but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, 
1Co 1:24  but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 

2Co 6:14  Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
2Co 6:15  Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? 
2Co 6:16  Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, "I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.
2Co 6:17  "Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.
2Co 6:18  "And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me," Says the Lord Almighty.

King of Kings

"Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen." (1 Timothy 1:17)

In this stirring doxology to the One who allowed him into the ministry (vv. 12-13), whose grace "was exceeding abundant" (v. 14), who "came into the world to save sinners" (v. 15), who showed mercy and longsuffering, and who grants "life everlasting" (v. 16), Paul uses several majestic descriptive terms. Each deserves our attention.

The King eternal. God's sovereign kingship is in view here. The phrase literally translates, the "King of the ages." "But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king" (Jeremiah 10:10). He is the King, and we must stand in submission to Him.

Creation and the Sciences


"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:27)
The first chapter of Genesis is the foundational chapter of the Bible and, therefore, of all true science. It is the great creation chapter, outlining the events of that first week of time when "the heavens and the earth were finished, and. . . . God ended his work which he had made" (Genesis 2:1-2)....
The third act of creation was that of the image of God in man and woman. The study of human beings is the realm of the human sciences. Our bodies can be analyzed chemically and our living processes biologically, but human behavior can only really be understood in terms of our relation to God, whose image we share.

Immigrants Don't Want America to Become The Very Thing They Escaped from: Socialism and Communism


RUSH: Here's Pablo.  Pablo in Ft. Lauderdale.  I'm glad you called.  Welcome to EIB Network.  Hi.
CALLER:  Thank you very much, Rush.  I was born in Argentina, before I became an American, the best nation that ever was.  I grew up learning songs of praise to Evita. In kindergarten they made us sing and dance songs of praise, that when I hear now kids in school learning songs of praise to Obama, I get a chill in my mind.


CALLER:  Now, I want to tell you this.  Most Hispanics, like me and many friends that I have, we don't want to make America the same crappy place we came from.  That's the last thing in our hope.  Most of us are conservatives.  Some are conservative, I'm a patriot, I love America.

CALLER:  They learn quickly, like I learned, Rush, when I went from 15 to 21 years old, I was a communist myself in Argentina.  So I know a communist when I hear one, when I see one.  I was one.  I studied.  I can still sing you the International, and I can tell you by heart the manifesto.  Of course I'm a patriot, I'm American and a conservative, a hundred percent now.  But I can tell you, I recognize a communist.  And we have that in government.  And that is a terrible thing that is happening to America that I would've never thought could happen.  I mean, if America's gone, there is nothing left.  There's nowhere to go...

CALLER:  And I wish most Americans will stop taking all the freedoms for granted and understand that we can also collapse.  I mean, it happened before.  Socialism, what it does to you economically is the least of the damage.  What it does to the spirit of people is absolutely horrendous and that's forever.  I have business in the Ukraine.  I have to go there sometimes, and I deal with people that lived under communism.  And I tell you, their spirits are broken, because they are unable to trust on anything because that's what communism teaches you, to distrust everything, including yourself.

My Object and Aim


My object is to lead the mind . . .
from SELF--to Jesus;
from sin--to salvation;
from the troubles of life--to the comforts of the gospel.

My aim is . . .
to humble the sinner--and exalt the Savior;
to strip the creature--and place the crown
on the head of God's free grace!
I cannot ascribe too much to Jesus--or too little to man!

They will never perish--ever!

"I give them eternal life, and they will never perish--ever! No one will snatch them out of My hand!" John 10:28

Jesus here speaks . . .
of His sheep,
of those whom the Father had given Him,
of those whom the Father drew unto Him,
of those for whom He died,
of those who sit at His feet to learn of Him.

Jesus loves His sheep.
Jesus laid down His life for His sheep.
Jesus lives to take care of His sheep.
Jesus will never, on any account, part with His sheep.
He can guard them, and He will surely keep them.
Whoever may perish--they never shall.
His Father will not permit it.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit will prevent it.
The love, power, and honor of Jesus combine to render it impossible!

(James Smith, "Food for the Soul" 1867)

Consistent Muslim

This is the real face of Islam....

As Gateway Pundit reports, mother of the Boston Jihadists said:

“If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!

Americans need to understand that Islam is a political religion.  Their loyalty isn't to family but to Islam and its a demonically based political religion. Zubeidat Tsarnaeva isn't an extremist; she's being faithful to the quran and to Islam. In other words, she is being consistent. It doesn't matter what country a true Muslim is from, the loyalty is to Islam, not the country in which they live (as her jihadist sons have proven).

Benedict Relieved To No Longer Shoulder The Vatican's Politics

One must understand that the Vatican, the Roman Catholic Church, the pope, and the magistrate is all about politics. It is after all, a city-state machine. Timing is everything even there.

As The Telegraph reports:


His [Benedict's brother Georg] comment about Benedict continuing to "suffer" the problems of the Church appeared to be a reference to the alleged infighting and power seeking plaguing the Vatican's bureaucracy, details of which emerged when the pope's butler leaked Benedict's private correspondence.
But since leaving behind the responsibility of overseeing the world's 1.2 billion Catholics he is now able to pray, read and play the piano at Castel Gandolfo, a secluded palazzo built on the rim of a volcanic lake, surrounded by acres of private gardens boasting a farm and spectacular Roman ruins.

These constant, inevitable, and lesser evils... are our trials, too

Remember that life is not entirely made up of great evils or heavy trials. The perpetual recurrence of petty evils and small trials is the ordinary and appointed way to mature our Christian graces. To bear with the moodiness of those about us, with their infirmities, their bad judgments, their perverse tempers; to endure neglect where we feel we have deserved attention, and ingratitude where we expected thanks--to bear with the whole company of disagreeable people whom Divine Providence has placed in our way, and whom God has perhaps provided on purpose for the trial of our virtues--these are the best exercises for our graces; and the better because not chosen by ourselves. To meekly bear with . . .
continual vexations in our homes,
disappointments in our expectations,
interruptions in our times of rest,
the follies, intrusions, and disturbances of others; 

in short, to meekly bear with whatever opposes our will and contradicts our desires--is the very essence of self-denial. These constant, inevitable, and lesser evils, properly improved, furnish the best moral discipline for the Christian.

(Hannah More

The Christian's Lifestyle: Our Wisdom by Henry Morris III, D.Min.

"Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is." (Ephesians 5:17)

The "wherefore" is preceded by the command "Walk as children of light" (Ephesians 5:8). This title, children of light, is used only three other times in the New Testament: once by the Lord Jesus to contrast worldly wisdom with the ineffectual use of godly wisdom in the least things (Luke 16:8); once again to direct us to believe in the light (John 12:36); and finally by Paul to encourage us to watch and be sober (1 Thessalonians 5:5-6).
A light-like life, which is evidence of the fruit of the Spirit, is expressed in the character of goodness (Romans 15:14), righteousness (Romans 14:17-18), and truth (Ephesians 5:9; compare Galatians 5:22).

Hope And Change? Yes, They Want To Change Marriage

The liberals are at it again, trying to redefine marriage to suit their anarchist agenda (well, that is, no one is the boss of them, but they are the boss of you who disagree).

MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry again strikes out at biblical, traditional marriage, with the agenda she says is:

"I suspect the real goal is to achieve a more inclusive recognition of the authentic and enduring ways that we connect ourselves to one another, without needing the words ‘husband,’ ‘wife’ or even ‘spouse.’ The difference we want this movement to make is bigger than that....“As we race to a victorious finish, it is time to begin forcefully articulating that, in fact, maybe we do want to change marriage – because while marriage should be a choice, it should not be an imperative… I hope we will be like the child who asks what difference it really makes." ~Source (bold, original)


This is indoctrination by and of liberals. Its an immature attitude that is unwise, irrational, illogical, emotional, immature, immoral, damaging, and sinful.

People cannot redefine a holy institution that God created in the beginning. We don't have the right or power. To desire it, to even ignore it, doesn't change that reality.

"Hath God said?" the ancient Serpent, the Devil, enticed Eve with, as he attacked the very authority and character of the thrice Holy God.

Yes, He did say. This is what Scripture is: God's very words given to man. Truth is knowable because the God of Truth is knowable. That is mercy and grace. Its also His standard by which He will judge everyone of us, and unless you are in Christ Jesus, you will fail the test because you have no righteousness in yourself. Only Jesus Christ is righteous and therefore HE is The way, The truth, and The life. No one comes to the Father but through HIM.



Gen 2:18  Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."
Gen 2:19  Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
Gen 2:20  The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
Gen 2:21  So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
Gen 2:22  The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
Gen 2:23  The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man."
Gen 2:24  For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 

Jesus said:

Mat 19:4  And He answered and said, "Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 
Mat 19:5  and said, 'FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'? 
Mat 19:6  "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate." 

Romans 1 shows us how corrupt homosexuality is and how unnatural and against the known created order God has already set up, it really is.  To try to redefine or UNdefine terms in marriage, is merely a selfish gesture that has no meaning and is ahistorical,abiological, and nonsensical. Words mean things and define thoughts, give order, give distinction to our thinking and communicating as well as an adhesiveness to our society. Perry can't even argue her point without using gender pronouns, thus proving that words are used to communicate thoughts. Take them away and you have chaos, confusion, and all manner of disorder.

Is A Degree Worth The Debt You'll Pay?

What you get and don't get in colleges and universities today. It might surprise you. It might also  clarify for you why we are entering into a Socialist society with citizens  who are unable to think critically or rationally. And by the way,  that debt isn't just financial either.

Who Influences You?

Pro 13:20  He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.


1Co 15:33  Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals."


Evil company. The Gr. term behind this word can also refer to a spoken message. By word or example, evil friends are a corrupting influence. Hope in the resurrection is sanctifying; it leads to godly living, not corruption. Some in the church did not know God and were a corrupting influence, but not for those who hoped for life in God’s presence (see 1 John 3:2, 3). ~MacArthur Study Bible notes

Filling In A Heretic's Pulpit: Greg Laurie, Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, David Platt

My friend over at Discern The Time shared that "The 'Christian' Post" has reported that  Greg Laurie, Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, David Platt, and Craig Groeschel fill in for false teacher Rick Warren.


LAKE FOREST, Calif. – Evangelist Greg Laurie filled in for Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren during worship services over the weekend and is the first of a string of well-known Christian leaders scheduled to speak from the pulpit while Warren continues to grieve his son's passing. The list of pastors planned includes Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, Pete Wilson, David Platt, Craig Groeschel, Wilfredo De Jesús, and Doug Fields.



2Jn 1:10  If anyone comes to you and does not bear this doctrine, do not receive him into the house, and do not speak a greeting to him. 11  For the one speaking a greeting shares in his evil works.

The godly man's crosses, losses and sorrows

It is not outward prosperity which the Christian most desires and values; it is soul prosperity which he longs for. Even in adversity, there is a true prospering, for it is often for the soul's health--that we would be poor, afflicted and tried. Our worst things--are often our best things! As there is a curse wrapped up in the wicked man's mercies--so there is a blessing concealed in the godly man's crosses, losses and sorrows. The trials of the saint are a divine husbandry, by which he grows and brings forth abundant fruit.

(Charles Spurgeon, "Treasury of David")

Boston Bombers Car Jacked Car With "Coexist" Bumper Sticker

Daily Caller's report confirms my stand that I've shared often: liberals don't understand that there is no "coexistence" with Muslims, because by their very foundation, they are out to take over the world, either by submission to Islam or the sword.

There is no coexistence with Islam.

Are you getting it yet Liberals? At least Bill Maher is starting to see it.

Aborted Baby Survivor Tries To Stay Alive

(CNSNews.com) – On the last day of testimony before the prosecution rests in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, a former worker at Gosnell's clinic testified that she saw one late-term baby who survived an abortion "swimming" in a toilet and "trying to get out."


Kareema Cross, a “medical assistant” who worked at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic for four-and-a-half years, testified in a Philadelphia court today, telling of the horrors of babies who survived abortions only to have their necks snipped with scissors.

That is murder and it is sick. As I shared earlier, this is not an exception, either. This is the face of the Abortion (Murder) Rights Movement. Its evil!

Michelle Obama Visited Saudi Person of Interest in Boston Bombing

Gosnell the Murdering Doctor at an Abortion Clinic Is No Exception

Star Parker writes:
Maybe we can keep this story alive by keeping in mind a few things.
What was happening in Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic was not some bizarre exception to the rule.
You can ask Day Gardner, director of the Black Pro-life Union. Her life is dedicated to covering these realities. In her words, “This is not an exception. These realities are happening every day all over our country.”
Despite the sense that no one was paying attention to the Gosnell story before Kirsten Powers wrote about it, know that Dr. Gardner, Dr. Alveda King and other pro-life activists were demonstrating outside Gosnell’s clinic as early as February 2011

Obama Downplays al-Qaeda

The Telegraph editorial (US):

Excerpts:


In his State of the Union address to the American people earlier this year, Barack Obama declared that he was "confident" of achieving "our objective of defeating the core of al-Qaeda".
Although he acknowledged the need to pursue the "remnants" of the terrorist group and its affiliates, the overall message was clear – al-Qaeda was badly degraded, the tides of war were receding and the US was winning this fight that was no longer even officially a war....
Mr Obama and his intelligence community know the threat from al-Qaeda affiliates, but have chosen to downplay it to the US public.
Even when that fight does directly touch on American lives, as it did last September when the US ambassador to Libya was murdered in Benghazi by an al-Qaeda linked group, the administration appears at pains to deny the connection.

If Only Obama Got That Mad When Americans Get Killed

RUSH: Now, the president, when the gun control bill failed in the Senate yesterday afternoon, he was mad.  Wouldn't it be great if you saw him get that kind of mad when Americans are killed?  He didn't get that mad after Benghazi.  He didn't get anywhere near that mad after what happened in Boston.  But let his gun control bill go down in the Senate, this guy blows a gasket.  He literally blew a gasket.  And I know why he blew a gasket.  Because this gun control bill was supposed to fail in the House so he could blame it on Republicans.  This gun control bill was not supposed to pass, folks.  It was supposed to pass the Senate.  It was supposed to fail in the House. 


Everything is about 2014 and winning the House and having a one-party control government so he can basically implement whatever he wants with no opposition.  Because, remember, that's Obama's objective, no opposition.  He doesn't want to debate people. He doesn't want to persuade people. He doesn't want to convince people.  He wants no people in his way.  So this bill was supposed to pass the Democrat-controlled Senate and then die in the House of Representatives, where he could blame it on Republicans, like he does everything, and then put that in the hopper of everything else he's blaming on Republicans and let that be part of the ongoing campaign effort by the Democrats to win the House in 2014. 
He is mad because his party sandbagged him. He is mad, still is mad -- he was livid --because the Democrats pulled a rug out from under him, four of them in the Senate. He's mad at Dingy Harry. He's mad at whoever it is that failed to get this done.

Obama's UnConstitutional Gun Ban Goes Down In Defeat....For Now

Its a good day when a socialist is angry because it means he didn't get his socialistic way. Obama's mad because the people's representatives didn't vote for his unConstitutional gun ban law, even though he desperately tried using the Sandy Hook school parents as a prop to push his anti-Constitutional ban. A new Gallop poll says that only 4% of Americans believe that gun control is an important issue. Statistically, 4% is insignificant.

It is a good day when every citizen continues to have his Constitutional rights upheld.

So far.

But alas, the socialism of the leadership in this country and its products of government schools will eventually remove our 2nd Amendment. That's when everyone should worry because once the government removes one of our rights as expressly enumerated in our Bill of Rights, they are all fair game. And they will be taken away. One by one, by every excuse he and his minions can think of. That right to free speech which liberals love for themselves (but not for Conservatives) will be removed and the liberals will suddenly see that when they speak against the government, they no longer possess that right to protest it. Cindy Sheehand, Jane Fonda? Mere distant memories.


Upcoming London Marathon Will Go On: remembering Boston's own across the Pond

Hello! Reports:

"Prince William's friend and his fiancée have described how they were caught up in the tragic Boston bombings, as Prince Harry vowed to honour his long-standing commitment at the London Marathon on Sunday in defiance of the blast...

Focus has now fallen on Sunday's London Marathon, which organisers have confirmed will go ahead in defiance of the bombers who struck in the US.

Leading the country in its show of solidarity is Prince Harry. The third-in-line, who is patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust, will still attend the race and hand out medals to the winners. He is also expected to spend time at the finish line.

London Marathon organisers have announced that Sunday's runners will observe a 30-second silence before each of the three starts."



Also, the participants will also be given a black ribbon to wear when they also pick up their race number in remembrance of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Let's hear it for our friends across the Pond! Don't let terror work--defy it and stand strong!

Tragic Ignorance



"For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." (Romans 10:3)
There are several important doctrinal truths about which unbelievers--and sometimes even Christians--seem tragically ignorant, with an ignorance affecting their very lives and destinies. Perhaps the most tragic is that mentioned in our text. Paul was writing specifically of the Jews, but the same ignorance is found in countless others--people who seek to earn salvation by their own religious and moral works rather than through faith in the imputed righteousness of Christ, who died for their sins.

The Mercy of God

There are no accidents with God. No plan B. No coincidences. Did you experience God's mercy today? Yes you sure did.

My Sympathy and Prayers

May those who were near the scene of the terrorist attack in Boston, MA today, turn to the Lord Jesus Christ and find comfort that can only come from Him. I pray for them and also for those who are my brothers and sisters in Christ that this would be a time where they can not only feel His comfort, but proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ as they come to the aid of others. Today is the day of salvation. No man knows his time. Only God does.



I was so encouraged by the immediate response of people from all walks of life including military folks and ordinary folks, who rushed to the aid of those wounded. I'm so grateful to the Lord for putting such compassion into the hearts of people.

California Considers Mandated Insurance for 'Gay Infertility': Say What? That's an Oxymoron

Ben Shapiro reports:

Excerpts:

For decades, members of the left have insisted that the right is fighting a war on science. But when it comes to the issues of abortion and homosexuality, it is the left that fights a consistent and ridiculous war with reality....
This week, Wesley Smith of the Weekly Standard reported that California would be considering AB 460, a bill that would mandate group insurance coverage for so-called gay and lesbian "infertility." What in the world does that bizarre phrase mean? It doesn't mean situations in which two members of a lesbian couple are both infertile and incapable of conception using some third party's sperm....

The way the law works, gay and lesbian couples would simply have to testify that they have been having sex for a year without producing a child to be considered "infertile," which is idiotic, since baby-making requires necessary components missing in homosexual activity. But nature is irrelevant here....
Two men or two women cannot produce a baby on their own. A baby outside the womb is a baby. These are unassailable facts. But when reality doesn't match the left's self-centered take on how nature should work, reality takes a back seat.

Socialism Reaffirmed by NBC Host and professor Melissa Harris-Perry

“This isn’t about me wanting to take your kids, and this isn’t even about whether children are property. This is about whether we as a society, expressing our collective will through our public institutions, including our government, have a right to impinge on individual freedoms in order to advance a common good. And that is exactly the fight that we have been having for a couple hundred years.” ~Breitbart

Questioning Psychology and Evolution

To dare question the validity of psychology ( "mental illness" and "chemical imbalance"), especially in light of no studies that prove this, is like taking on evolution when, as with the other two, there is zero evidence of the existence of such a thing.

Tell a lie long enough, people will begin to believe it. Even without any evidence to support it. Even in the face of evidence that actually disproves it. Think of the movie "Expelled" with Ben Stein; the documentary of how dogmatic academia and our society, really, are in regard to the presumption of evolution even though there's never been any evidence to support is main presumptions. The same reaction is found when questioning the validity or daring to think outside of the dogma of psychology.

Both evolution and  psychology  are related. Because evolution devalues human life to that of mere animal which developed over eons of time from a primordial soup, believing we are nothing more than the sum of material (cells), there was left a gaping hole as to how to deal with the inner man; the emotions, thoughts, and spirit of the individual. Enter psychology. Psychology is the daughter of evolution, and the studies done under the guise of "science"  (always biased, and funded by pharmaceutical companies who need to make money and by researchers who need the companies to fund their research), involve animal trials.

We are not animals. We are created in the image of God.


Gen 1:26  Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
Gen 1:27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 
Gen 1:28  And God blessed them. And God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

By biblical definition and pronouncement of the Creator, we are above animals and we are to subdue them an  have dominion over them. 

We are not animals. We are spiritual beings. All of us have minds, wills, emotions, reason, and spirits. This is untrue of all animals and insects, etc. We are, in a word, unique, and the crowning glory of  triune God's creation (pronounced as "good" and "a little lower than the angels" see Gen. 1:27-31 and Heb. 2:7).

Therefore, because we are unique, and really, even distinct, from all other creation, we should never use animals as a comparison  in research on psychotropic drugs nor in trying to determine the cause of a behavior. Animals don't have reason, wills, spirits, or thoughts. They have instinct. This is why we are superior to them and therefore can subdue and rule over them.

Why compare what happens to mere rats in a lab when they dope it up to what might happen to humans when they are doped up?

Evolution for one thing, even if there's absolutely zero evidence of evolution anywhere connecting man to animal. Similarity claimed is merely surface and not of substance. 

To observe a behavior in a rat and then infer its the same for a human is not only irrational, its insulting. When has a researcher asked a rat how he was feeling that day? Did the rat tell the researcher his feelings, thoughts, and attitudes both before and after being doped up? It sounds ridiculous, doesn't it.

It should.

That's exactly what they do in "research" (funded by pharmaceutical companies with a vested interest in finding a study that confirms what they NEED it to confirm, not to mention the monetary investment). Inactivity in a rat or a mouse is presumed to be "depression". Why? How? In humans, depression is merely defined by symptoms reported by the client that particular day (he might be having a bad day or week), and then its  interpreted by a therapist or psychiatrist as to what category (decided to be placed in the DSM by voting it in or out) to place that client in.

In a word its totally subjective, from the researcher, to the client, to the therapist. 

God has told us why there is sin in the world, and why we as individuals sin, as well as what the cure is. I will listen to the Creator and Owner of this universe who has a perfect tract record of truth and faithfulness. This was the general worldview up until recent history. 

Additionally, to label certain behaviors good and others bad is not a scientific exercise, its a religious/moral exercise. Something psychology and its mother, evolution cannot account for, nor has any authority in which to categorize anything of such a nature. It tries and thus we have the DSM which is voted on every 5 years or so by a bunch of psychologists and psychiatrists who themselves are bias and have an evolutionary, secular humanistic worldview, with a vested interest in the longevity of their careers and field.

One can see the idol of evolution and psychology by our culture and individuals. Its been so ingrained into our society for so long--lying about its "fact" when there is none--that most people presume its truth. When you deny that "truth", people get really upset.

Today's culture demands you accept the "truth" of evolution or you aren't recognized as having  a valid view or career. In the same way, today's culture demands you accept "psychology" or more specifically mental "illness" (saying the mind can be diseased--not the brain, but the MIND, and thus the dogma of"chemical imbalance"), and if you don't, you are dismissed as hateful, uneducated, and worthless to listen to.

I believe the reaction to the rejection of both evolution and psychology is the same as I've seen it myself. I also know that the root of both are lies and philosophies which are couched not in science, but a worldview, which are in fact, a sort of religion. Evolution and psychology are founded in anti-Christ, anti-God, anti-biblical presumptions and worldview. They are idols of our society and sadly yet clearly have zero answers to the plight of man.

The Myths of Chemical Imbalance and Mental Illness

              
                                 (photo source)


1Ti 6:20  O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called "knowledge," 21  for by professing it some have swerved from the faith. Grace be with you.

**UPDATE October 26,2017

Another article published in September 2017:

"Having practiced psychotherapy now for nearly a decade, I continue to be amazed by the number of patients who come in and claim to have a chemical imbalance in their brain. Not only is the chemical imbalance theory of mental disorder unsubstantiated by any empirical research, but it has also been widely and publicly refuted by a number of prominent psychiatrists, like Allen Frances and Ronald Pies above. In fact, I have found that the most militant proponents of the chemical imbalance idea to be nonpsychiatrists—like social workers and clinical psychologists—who cling to the theory as a way of validating their status as "health professionals."

"Why does the chemical imbalance theory live on despite the fact that it is well-established to be a myth? The idea of a chemical imbalance is a simple and succinct way for psychiatrists and other mental health professionals to communicate to patients and their families that psychiatric conditions are "real," regardless of whether they are medical or nonmedical. "Chemical imbalance" provides a seemingly scientific-sounding explanation to human problems that have historically evaded scientific inquiry. To this day, there exists not a single biological test for any mental disorder, despite claims to the contrary. To assert that a patient has a chemical imbalance is to validate and confirm the experience of the suffering person."

Money--billions--is also at stake.

***UPDATE from January 2017***

God's Word Is True: Johns Hopkins Doctors Conclude Homosexuality Isn't Scientifically Proven


*** UPDATE 10/23/15*** (more updates at the bottom of the article)

"Many individuals who are prescribed and use antidepressant medications may not have met criteria for mental disorders. Our data indicate that antidepressants are commonly used in the absence of clear evidence-based indications." - Study as reported in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

Yes of course. There's no evidence for any of it. It is clearly subjective both on the one who's reporting feelings and thoughts, and the one diagnosing. But there's no object medical test b/c it's not a physical problem. It's a spiritual problem. And people don't want to deal with life as it happens--either the one going through difficulties or the therapist. It's easy for both the client and the therapist to just throw pills at the problem and call it a day (an expensive day at that!).



***UPDATE 8/28/15***

A major investigation into scores of claims made in psychology research journals has delivered a bleak verdict on the state of the science.
An international team of experts repeated 100 experiments published in top psychology journals and found that they could reproduce only 36% of original findings.
The study, which saw 270 scientists repeat experiments on five continents, was launched by psychologists in the US in response to rising concerns over the reliability of psychology research.
In the investigation, a whopping 75% of the social psychology experiments were not replicated, meaning that the originally reported findings vanished when other scientists repeated the experiments. Half of the cognitive psychology studies failed the same test. Details are published in the journal Science.
Even when scientists could replicate original findings, the sizes of the effects they found were on average half as big as reported first time around. That could be due to scientists leaving out data that undermined their hypotheses, and by journals accepting only the strongest claims for publication.
~The Guardian reports

***UPDATE 5/13/15***

Another scientist finds that  not only antidepressents to be pretty ineffective, but even deadly in over 500,000 65 year olds.

" However, concern is mounting among doctors and scientists worldwide that psychiatric medication is doing more harm than good. In particular, they say antipsychotic drugs have been overprescribed to many dementia patients in a bid to calm agitated behavior."
Gøtzsche warns psychiatric drugs kill patients year in year out, and hold few positive benefits. He says in excess of half a million citizens across the Western world aged 65 and over die annually as a result of taking these drugs.
“Their benefits would need to be colossal to justify this, but they are minimal,” he writes.
“Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm.”
Gøtzsche, who is also a clinical trials expert, says drug trials funded by big pharmaceutical companies tend to produce biased results because many patients took other medication prior to the tests.
He says patients cease taking the old drugs and then experience a phase of withdrawal prior to taking the trial pharmaceuticals, which appear highly beneficial at first.
The Danish professor also warns fatalities from suicides in clinical trials are significantly under-reported.
End quote.

Also of note, not only the bias of the studies and under-reporting of the results on these drugs which are funded by big Pharma which claim to help and solve the customers' problems, but also by a journalist who himself is a psych patient:

"The debate on psychiatric drugs has gathered momentum in recent times. In the discussion, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), Gøtzsche’s arguments are contradicted by Professor of Mood Disorders Allan Young and John Crace. Crace, himself a psychiatric patient, writes for the Guardian."


***UPDATE 4/3/15***

Nearly 70% of People Taking Anti-depressants May Not Actually Have Depression

More than two thirds of people taking antidepressants 'may NOT actually have depression': Doctors discover many do not meet the official criteria


  • *Study analysed those taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)
  • *Found 69% did not meet the criteria for clinical depression
  • *And 38% did not meet the criteria for other mental conditions like anxiety 
  • *Experts: 'Drugs are prescribed without an evidence-based diagnosis'


**UPDATE**

USA reports that experts in psychology are agreeing that "mental illness" is not a disease nor are there any biological markers to indicate it. Moreover the report shows that experts in the field see how the Bible of the psychology industry, the DSM, is nothing but a collection of subjective symptoms and NO science.



Voddie Bacham also says there's no such thing as a chemical imbalance, its a myth, there's no test. He's absolutely right.

There's no test: its voted in by the APA and put into the DSM. And sometimes disorders are removed. This is being proclaimed within the psychology and psychiatry fields, not by Christians but by secular experts in their own fields.

From the man who wrote the book"The Myth of Mental Illness" in 1955, here's an update by Thomas Szasz (professor of Psychiatry Emeritus at the State University of New York Health Science Center in Syracuse, New York.)
