Standing, Always Standing

Yes, there are many forms of persecution. Here is a excerpt takin from the late great Dc Talk's book called, Jesus Freaks( I extremely encourage everyone to read this book, it will change how you view your world).

Anne Askew
England
1546

"Anne Askew was imprisoned and greatly tortured for her faith. Placed on a cruel rack, her joints and bones were pulled out of place. She fainted from the pain, but when she regained consciousness, she preached for two hours to her tormentors.
On the day of her execution,she was carried to the stake in a chair because her bones were dislocated and she couldn't walk. At the last moment, she was offered the king's pardon if she would recant. She said: "I did not come here to deny my Lord and Master."
She died praying for her murders in the midst of flames. " (end of excerpt)

Now, in today's world, in most countries, we are not persecuted in this way for being Christians. But persecution is still happening today even here in America. Persecution is happening on a much larger scale. People are becoming more open against God and Christians, for example: tyring to get the phrase " In God We trust" taken out of are national anthem and off our coins and currency. All across the nation, schools are being told not to start off the day with prayer, students are discouraged from wearing things that openly proclaim their Christianity like necklaces or clothing. Politicians all across the states have/are trying to remove things like a Ten Commandments memorial off public or government land.These are only a few of the examples of persecution in today's world. And not just in America, oh no, these type's of things are happening all over the world in places like Europe, Canada, and other bigger countries. My message is this, we need to stand up against this, speak out, all the while standing firm in our faith and our God. We must not let these problems stop us from spreading the Gospel.

Desperate Times, Desperate Measures

Well, I couldn't think of anything to post about, so I surfed the web for a bit to see if i could find some good little stories. I was not disappointed. Here are two interesting stories.

Just recently, a woman,Gloria Ballard, was arrested for spanking ANOTHER parents two year old. As the story goes, Mrs. Ballard, decided something that the two year old said annoyed her, and she proceeded to spank the child twice across the bottom. Note to Mrs. Ballard: how about you reserve dishing out spankings to your OWN children, I mean ,c'mon lady, how not smart(notice i refrained from saying dumb) can you be?!

How many children are a good number for a family, 1,3, 6, nooo, not for this family.The Duggar family in Tonitown, Arkansas have made it public that that Mrs. Duggar is now 2 1/2 months pregnant with their 19th child. let me repeat that. They have NINETEEN, 19, children.WoW. If you have an opinion on this story, look at my poll.

Well, all in all.....

Life is good. Our government is roughly 11 TRILLION DOLLARS in debt as of September 12,2009, and it increases by roughly 3 BILLION DOLLARS EVERY DAY.Unemployment is at a 26 year high rate of 9.7 %.Our country is in the hands of communist. Our country may be the picture of imperfection in all it's entirety.But life,my friends, life is still good. What does it matter that our President thinks that a 900 BILLION dollar plan, " will not add a dime to our debt". Who cares!!! We will just continue to go about living our oober comfortable, air-conditioned( i am NOT saying A.C. is bad) lives as if nothing was the matter.Sometimes i think some of us think that the debt is just going disappear one of these days, well guess what, IT WON'T.The countries we borrowed from are going to want their money back. This younger generation and their children will have to pay thru the nose to pay it back too them. But hey, like I said...

Life is good.
If you did not pick-up on the sarcasm just dripping off this post, you need help.Life is NOT good and we are in serious trouble.

Out with Freedom, In with Prison(aka school)

Summer, the time of warm weather, lots of sunshine, days at the lake,sleeping in, and our obsession with being tanned(well, at least i like to be a little tanned),is coming to a frenzied end.People rushing to milk every last drop of fun they can out of summer.And with the end of one thing, always comes the begining of another, in this case two things, me favorite season, Fall, and ,for most people between the age of 6-22, SCHOOL. School is here, and it will not leave for a very long time. Oh, how i wish it were not so.


Curiosity killed the cat,
But Satisfaction brought him back.
