We hope that we are not tossed about by every wave that washes by to and fro. But it's a fact that many folks feel that way with 'TMI' [Too Much Information] these days. It's not a LACK of Info-- but TOO much info, so that we just wonder how much of it is true and the other percentage, 'fluff' , or filtered to suit a certain agenda-- and neither political party in America has the solution, yet the majority of people here put all their marbles in some human champion to 'get us out of the fix' we are in right now. And then some folks would say that I worry too much-- but it IS very possible to get hurt or killed by NOT knowing enough info about something-- in many cases, willful ignorance and complacency ! For instance, with working in welding and concrete construction and fabrication, you have to be 'schooled' in certain trades, like Oxy-Acetylene welding, and cutting steel, where you HAVE TO KNOW how much Acetylene you are using and opening the valve in relation to the gauge to the correct amount so that you don't blow yourself up with that very unstable gas!
And the buck stops with the man who hires and fires, and/ or the supervisor, to make sure he puts competent men and women in the field who know what they are doing, instead of just filling the job with cheap, inexperienced labor. So too in the military, when operating with 'deadly force' and fire arms-- there is good reason to teach safety and use strict discipline! Also with a father teaching his son about every day values, telling the truth and being honest. Many times the fatherless, unsupervised boy gets into more trouble because he has NEVER been taught the correct people skills, honesty, hard work ethics, and truth of the Bible. And then look at whole nations and societies without the true God of the Bible-- where the population and especially women suffer the most for lack of Biblical knowledge! Would a woman really choose to live in SA [Saudi Arabia or Iran] and be subject to unfair penalties slanted against the female species, but not the male??
I learned some NEW things again with Britt Gillette's article, about the "7 signs of the End Times Prophecy|", that increased my faith and knowledge all the more. And to think... if we close our eyes to these warnings, we are also calling Jesus Christ a liar! Are YOU prepared to give an answer as to why you believe in the Christian Faith?? It's a lot more important than the final score between the Packers/ Colts football game last night...lol. For instance, wars, earthquakes and famine [Matthew 24] will increase both in frequency and severity as we roll toward the Lord's 2nd coming. We can COUNT on more huge, destructive events coming faster and with more intensity in our near future, but I learned that the 'Main Event' prophecy has to do with Israel being destroyed and scattered by the Roman Empire-- only to be resurrected again in 1948, even after Hitler's Holocaust, and Jerusalem being a huge 'burden/ Rock' for the Nations! Interesting and timely. You might want to share this post.
My wife is scheduled to have back surgery on September first. Loads of fun... when it rains-- it pours.
