Passive Christianity.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
    I am not a pessimist,  but a "realist."  Also, bible prophecy comes into the play, and "God cannot lie." ---Titus 1: 2.   All my many friends and fellow Believers, bible smart good rational, level headed people all agree that the 'signs' and prophesy are all coming true now, right before our eyes, and that also gives us great hope and clarity.  PTL [Praise the Lord !]  We try to legally change the world from a wicked Satan rules/ controlled place, into a better place with people who love God and want to do His will...   but we know that things must get worse and just play themselves out until the Lord comes back to "clean things up," once and for all.   That is our honest, legitimate hope that keeps us going,  besides the resurrection promise.  That is why real Christians can die with a smile.  Real hope.

Perhaps I should never set this in print,  but I have gone thru some major struggles in the past few years U.P. here in this frozen tundra, in conflict, etc., and now I am a lonely old guy, soon seeking a much better relationship with some lady who will have me, in the future, after all the dust settles.  I might relocate soon,  but as of now, I just do not know.  I depend on my Lord to steer me in the right direction and pray fervently every single night before I drift off to sleep.  Yes, I DEPEND on my Lord to keep me sane, somewhat healthy, stable and in a positive mind set.  There are places in the heart that weep for my circumstance right now, and I do much better in a stable, monogamous, friendly, marriage/  LTR.  For and to that end, I ask that all my friends and followers pray for me, please.   MANY GOOD PEOPLE ALREAY PRAY FOR ME ON A REGULAR BASIS.   I guess I need to just be more active, and with the warmer weather, that is just what I plan to do.  But 'things are now happening in my life,' as I am meeting other new people, and one way or another, I will probably relocate and maybe visit my dear old Mom who suffers from Alzheimer's disease in her mid-80's, down in Burlington, WI.   I used to work at Nestle Company there when I first got home from Vietnam in 1970, making chocolate.  Good stuff !!   But I was young and wild, trying to settle down to civilian life after being caught up in a whirl wind of super active adventure flying in helicopters every single day, 7 days a week for a whole year, in my 2nd tour in Vietnam.  Wow!   I still stay in contact with my "Brothers in Arms"  -- and care for them a lot.   I have been to the Wall in D.C. about 4 times and loved it.  

OK, that's it for today, friends.  Have a great Spring day, even if it's cloudy again.

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

Here is picture of a nice RN gentleman at the Milwaukee VAMC Hospital, years ago, sticking long needles in my knees to help take the pain away.  I now have two bionic, steel, knees.  Super hard work all my life and arthritis made my knees to hurtful... but now they are much better.

Passive Christianity threatens a free society 

Recent headlines are indicative of a society gone awry. Breitbart reports that "A so-called "antifascist" group that supports illegal immigration is planning a rally against GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump this Saturday in New York City, the same day that a Black Lives Matter affiliated group that also supports illegal immigration is planning a rally in Phoenix, Arizona." This is supported by the "president's" policies. This is also supported by communist billionaire George Soros. This is using free speech to organize against fee speech. These anarchists are trying to paint those who do not share their values as "fascists" when, in reality, they are the fascists. Using their freedom, they threaten free society.

The immoral and amoral are trying to place a death grip on our free society. Christians must stand otherwise freedom will cease to exist. "Freedom sees in religion the companion of its struggles and its triumphs, the cradle of its infancy, the divine source of its rights. It considers religion as the safeguard of mores; and mores as the guarantee of laws and the pledge of its own duration."--these are the words of Alexis de Tocqueville, a French aristocrat who came to America in the 1830s to observe what made the country so great. His "Democracy in America" is considered a historic treasure about the unique success of the United States. Tocqueville wrote that America is free because of its collective Christian religion. 

He pointed out that the laws that governed the Plymouth colony were derived from the Hebrew texts. In the later 1600s, even the law of Connecticut stated that man shall not "have or worship any other God, but the Lord God." He said that Americans "have succeeded in incorporating somehow into one another and combining marvelously...the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom." According to the laws and the nature of early Americans, men and women who have the religious and political beliefs of most of our current leadership would have been forbidden to serve in such capacity, if not tried and convicted as criminal for their immorality and corruption.

Cotton Mather wrote in 1820, "There is a liberty of corrupt nature, which is affected both by men and beasts, to do what they list; and this liberty is inconsistent with authority, impatient of all restraint; by this liberty we are all inferior;  'tis the grand enemy of truth and peace, and all the ordinances of God are bent against it. But there is a civil, a moral, a federal liberty, which is the proper end and object of authority; it is a liberty for that only which is just and good; for this liberty you are to stand with the hazard of your very lives." Galatians 5:1 says, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." As Christians we must demand and accept no other form of liberty.
