Choice, Consequence, Obligation

Think about it – Your next choice does not exist until you create it. That next choice will become part of human history – for eternity! When you choose an action, you have chosen a consequence. Since you created the choice that produced the consequence, you are obliged to accept responsibility for the consequence.

Children are the consequence of their parents’ choices. Parents are obliged to accept responsibility for the care of the children until they can care for themselves. Care for the children can be transferred or shared – but – the obligation cannot be transferred!

Noah Webster, Father of American education put it this way in his 1828 Dictionary.

“EDUC̵A´TION, n. [L. educatio.] The bringing up, as of a child; instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.”

“To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.”

Why is a “religious education” indispensable? I respond, “ – because God exists.” It is God who created us with the ability to choose. Since we are dependent upon Him for our next breath we are obliged to choose the best for Him and one another. (I did not make that up. It is in His book – the Bible, and it makes perfect sense. Revealed Law & Natural Law), Our main purpose in life is to learn to love God and one another, The goal of a “religious education”.

This fall a vast number of parents will be transferring the education of their children to public schools and universities. Those institutions have been made irreverent by fiat! Public education philosophy is shifting rapidly to open opposition to Godly worldviews.
Dear parents – I beg you – Get your kids out of the public education system NOW! Our precious nation does not deserve what public educated students are going to do to her as adults!

But – You say, “I am not qualified to teach my children and I cannot afford private school.” I can guarantee that it will not be “easy”! Tonight, when the house is quiet. Tiptoe through the house and peek into each room. If there are any kids in there, you are qualified!

There is a world of support out there, if you will diligently seek it. Talk to friends, search the net. I suggest http.www,FACE.net as a good place to start. One day you will answer to the Lord for the education choices you made for your children. Find a way. You cannot transfer the obligation.

My greatest shock

by mariomurilloministries
It is the greatest shock of my life that the American church has remained dormant. What atrocity must the Democrat Party commit before the American Church rises in appropriate outrage and rises to do her duty? By now, any other generation of Christians would be galvanized and unified in holy outrage. Any other generation of preachers would be thundering from pulpits shaking drowsy believers awake.
The Democrats have rabies-and their bite will destroy our nation. Don’t believe me? Take a look at what they did just today.
-Today Democrats have shifted from legal immigration to open defiance of Federal Law. It was brewing, but now it is being finalized. They do not want to fix immigration, and are determined to break the law.
Jonathan S. Tobin reports:
“But it is quite another for Democratic leadership to declare, with near unanimity, as is the case with the party’s presidential candidates, that they wish to decriminalize entering the country without permission and to grant those who do so government-paid health care. The same goes with states now offering paid college tuition and driver’s licenses to people who crossed into the country illegally.
“Such positions are a neon “welcome” sign on the border that tells those who want to come here without following the rules that there will be no negative consequences for doing so. While liberals say Trump’s claim that they support “open borders” is a lie, there’s no other way to describe the net effects of such policies. Democrats now support treating entering the country illegally as the moral equivalent of jaywalking or spitting on the sidewalk.”
When will you see that we are being invaded? Our way of life, our faith, our very existence.

-Today Democrats voted to impeach President Trump. They have zero grounds to impeach Trump and are doing it simply out of hatred for the man. This is rogue government, pure and simple. The fact that the vote failed does not change the outrage of how vulgar and out of control the Democrat House is. -Today Elizabeth Warren hired a pro Hamas Aide to cement her hatred of Israel. “Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon reported that Warren recently hired anti-Israel radical Max Berger, who helped to found the IfNotNow organization, a group that has devoted itself to damaging Israel’s reputation in America under the guise of seeking an end to Israel’s “occupation” of Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem.
“In doing so, IfNotNow routinely ignores Palestinian terrorism against Jews, promotes the “scholarship” of noted terrorist spokespersons, and even harasses young Jews attending Birthright trips.”

https://thefederalist.com/2019/07/17/hiring-pro-hamas-aide-completes-elizabe th-warrens-anti-israel-pivot/
Today, the Democrats declared that anyone who disagrees with them is a racist.
That’s just today.
You already know that they support banning the Bible, Christian T-Shirts, prayer, and sermons they deem homophobic or Islamophobic. They believe in killing babies even after they are born. They are in lockstep with Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Google, and Twitter to control information and blackout any content that supports Trump’s reelection.
Not only this, but there is also their concerted attack on the Founding Fathers, which is their pretext for altering the American Constitution and decertifying the Declaration of Independence. The absolute worst mixture is ignorance with arrogance. Democrats are held hostage by voices that at any other time in history would be silenced in a heartbeat.

All of this begs several very big questions:
How can the church still be silent?
How is it possible that some pastors will still advise their people to vote for Democrat candidates?
If our faith is not about stopping this, then what is it for? Why are some still teaching a tired falsehood-the lie that Jesus doesn’t want us to choose sides in such a blatant case of good versus evil? And the last question: What is the American Church waiting for?

American Christians do not know their duty because they do not know the Bible. Of course Satan planned it this way. While he was moving the Democrat Party to the extreme left, he was moving the church toward marshmallow faith.
Democrats are not a political party anymore-they are a criminal enterprise that is mobilizing to remove your rights, ban Christianity, and legislate immorality.
Tragically, many modern American Christians have proven that they can stomach the vileness. This is especially sad, because that seems to be the only real strength they have-a tolerance for immorality. And do the preachers of this era have any inkling of how history will judge their deafening silence?
Democrats will create chaos and tyranny. Ignoring this will condemn your children and grandchildren to live in a world that is too horrible to describe. Worst of all, you won’t be there for them. Maybe you don’t feel great outrage over what you consider a ‘secular’ subject, such as politics…but dear God, what will become of your children?
Nehemiah exhorts us from across the ages: Nehemiah 4:14, “And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.””

It is at this point that I wish to offer you some comfort. You may remember in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, when Scrooge is terrified when confronted by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, in the dank, dark bedroom of Scrooge’s London home.
Cowering in fear, Scrooge cries out, “Jacob! Old Jacob Marley, tell me more! Speak comfort to me, Jacob!” With that the ghost candidly replies, “I have none to give. Such comfort comes from other regions, Ebenezer Scrooge, and is conveyed by other ministers, to other kinds of men.”
I reach deep down inside, and struggle to find what words of comfort I can offer-but I cannot lie-I cannot find any. Often, like Marley, I have no comfort to give. The truth and comfort collide. I wonder.
I pray to God that the concept of “comfort conveyed by other ministers, to other kinds of men” does not apply to the American church. Is the lukewarm American church disqualified from the comfort and the moral awakening it must have, because those things belong to other kinds of preachers, who preached other kinds of sermons to other kinds of Christians? Arise, church of God! Take up the weapons of your warfare, and fight for your nation and your families- and fight the evil that threatens us all, in the Name of Jesus!

This is a letter to our friends –

Keeping it simple

Just say it this way –

Do you really want to know what is true?

To begin with – Understand that truth exists. (Those who deny that truth exists cannot live consistently with their beliefs.) Others say that there are no absolutes. Ask them if they are absolutely sure.

Next – Point out the absurdity of belief that random chance could produce a functioning eyeball, much less a functioning human body! There must have been an intelligent designer. That point applies to our entire universe from the largest to the smallest detail.

Some say that such an intelligent designer exists, but after creation was “wound up” (i.e. set in motion) He set it on the shelf to run itself. Point out that there is a wholesome means of fulfillment for every need you discover. The Creator wants the best for you.

Nothing exists without a set of rules to govern (i.e. direct, regulate, control, restrain) it.
Since everything and everyone is obliged to this ultimate Creator for his / its existence, everything and everyone is obliged to obey His rules.

Common sense tells us we should love (want the best for -) the Creator God and one another.

Truth tells us we have violated His rules and become guilty. Guilt earns penalty. Unless forgiven, we must each pay our own penalty. Forgiveness is made possible by One who has not broken the rules, Jesus Christ, payed the penalty in your place.

He offers you forgiveness in exchange for your humbly confessing your guilt and accepting His grace.

Just as the Creator God, created the universe, in like manner you are the unique creator of your next choice. That choice becomes a permanent addition to world history – forever!

More bloodwork done! Everything came back clean! PTL!!! CT scan at the end of the month. The doctor in Colorado told us that if the cancer came back, it probably wouldn’t show up in the bloodwork, so the CT is the real test. But getting a clean blood panel is always a huge relief.

In other news, we now officially have insurance! PTL! Still a high deductible that we are just now starting on with the CT. But, so very grateful for coverage, nonetheless.

Thank you all for your continued support. Just when we think we have paid all of the bills, a new one comes in. We have learned to trust in the Lord’s provision in all of it. So, thank you to everyone who has prayed for us and for our provision and for each of you who has contributed. God is good!
