Grudges and Hatred WILL Consume you

First rule of thumb is that fallen mankind does not have a propensity for the good, but to be driven to the bad. We find it quite natural to hate, to have anger, and to hold grudges. And is not some type of progression, we begin at a very young age in this. We don’t need to be taught how to hate another or how to hold a grudge, it encompasses our very fallen nature.

Speaking from many years of experience, I can say a grudge and hatred will consume you if you are not careful. I can speak of one example which now I see as one of the lowlights in my life. A woman and her cohort scammed me out of many thousands of dollars. By the time I learned of the scam and accepted it as a scam, it was too late. But then I ensued on a relentless campaign to try and gain revenge. I held a deep grudge, again it was quite natural to do so in my fallen degenerate state.

It literally consumed every aspect of my life as I investigated the scam and tried to bring justice to what I saw as a grave injustice. I pursued the law, lawyers, and each day it was my goal to bring these scammers to their knees. By the time it ended, two years of my life was wasted! I almost lost my business because of being totally consumed in this grudge.

When God opened my eyes in the midst of this grudge, He showed me then it was very unnatural for a child of His to behave this way. He pressed me that I needed to forgive this wrong, and move on. And He really did not give me a choice or option, because He had just forgiven me for the zillions of sins committed against Him through Jesus Christ. God is NO grudge keeper or there would be no forgiveness.

If you are a grudge keeper, holding everything against another still, ask yourself if God should do the same with you. There really is NO argument you can make to carry on unless you are destined NOT to be forgiven for your own zillions of sins.

Grudges and hate are a waste of time and energy! Nothing good comes from them. Don’t waste any day brooding over an injustice, because God gets the final say!

If Scripture isn’t Teaching it, it ain’t Christianity!

Want the Christian church to take you seriously? You must have a command of Scripture and its truth. There are so many who claim they have been saved, claim they are true Christians, and other than generalities could not tell you a thing about what God teaches through His word.

Setting the Bible on the shelf to collect dust or used for show to your family and friends is also exposing the uselessness the Bible has in your life. And for those who constantly give excuses, STOP giving excuses and start seeing God’s word as the ultimate priority.

You don’t need to be an expert of biblical doctrine, no one really is, but you should at least know the basics. Because there will come a time when a non-Christian or a Christian will challenge your basic knowledge. A Christian in modern society really has ZERO excuses to give.

But one of the main excuses I see is “I don’t have the time”. “Really?” I always think to myself when I hear that excuse. Because the person has time for their pastimes and hobbies and family and career, but then calls themselves a Christian while not having time for God and His word? They sit on Facebook all day for example, and have no time for a passage of Scripture to study?

I can speak from my own testimony. Upon leaving the Catholic Church, I saw how deficient I truly was in Scripture. I allowed others to deceive me because I didn’t take the time on my own to study these things to see if they were truth by Scripture. NEVER AGAIN, I said to myself, NEVER AGAIN! Never again would I allow some clown or clowns try a false doctrine out on me without that test of Scripture. Because the nice thing about Scripture is it quickly shows a falsehood.

A good rule of thumb is, if Scripture isn’t teaching it, it ain’t Christianity! And the Apostle Paul states in Galatians 1:8-9 that NO MATTER who it is teaching the falsehood, it is to be discarded with a curse and distaste. It could be in your mind the most moral and sincere person you have ever met in your life, if Scripture isn’t teaching it, it ain’t Christianity.

Scripture will always be the ultimate truth, the end of the line. God did not err, nor could He be in err. So it is always trustworthy and the highest place of truth!

The Essence of Patience

knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience: (Ref James 1:3)

I can speak from personal life experience that when and if we dismiss God’s will for our desires of which we want right now, those decisions ultimately always end in sad failure. We want it now, but God is silent. So we push the envelope and take matters into our own hands which leaves us blind without His advocacy. God allows this.

So what happens in this pushing the envelope, we make decisions based on emotions, lust, and irrational reasoning. Some for example desire to get married and are depressed because the right one or anyone for that matter has not come along to fill that desire. So instead of patience, they push the envelope and are consumed with achieving the end desire that they are willing to marry absolutely anyone despite any discernment.

In medical emergencies, sometimes patience is disregarded and it leads to an unexpected demise. The desire to be healthy will quickly devoid the reasoning of what the doctor is actually prescribing, so the patient may take a drug not recommended by a doctor but by social media or a colleague or family member for example. Or they may not be willing to wait on a surgery, and try risking something dangerous to gain their health back. This will lead to very tragic results including death and suicide in some cases.

What is probably the number one key indicator of one who is depressed? If you listen carefully and closely, it is generally something they have not gained and have given up hope in waiting for, they are unwilling to wait any longer. Patience is the missing key element or was just cast off, which lead to this depression. “I want the promotion now!”, “I want him or her to marry me now and they won’t”, “I want to go on the vacation this year, but I don’t have the money”, “I want them to accept me now, and they won’t”, and other such sentiments as these which are keys to this void of patience which produced the depression.

God’s timing must be always trusted!! If things fall into place easily, you should know that He being the loving God made this line up, your waiting time is over. If however the task is quite difficult, you aren’t seeing desired outcomes, things are more of a problem, you should know God is telling you to wait, be patient. His timing is never our timing!


And by this to FULLY BELIEVE in His direction for your life!

Is Donald J. Trump Your god?

With the election approaching, I’d be negligent if I did not write about the glaring problem in this society today. This has NOTHING to do with endorsing a candidate. It incenses me when I see anyone trying to hold Mr. Trump to a perfection standard while then not holding that same standard for everyone including the person in the mirror.

Yes, you might be blind to this inherent fact that IF you hold Trump to absolute perfection, infallible in every way, he just became your god. Does this mean you cannot disagree with him? No! It means that holding him carefully on every word or action to absolute perfection, you are in effect deeming him as a deity. Your disappointment then is chastise this deity of yours because he failed to meet your standard. I have news for those who disagree, Trump is merely a human being, complete with flaws as everyone else. Is this a reason to hate him? If you do hate him, you also hate the person in the mirror.

Those who generally hold Trump to this perfection standard and now hate him, that he can have NO past sins, NO mistakes, NO harsh language, then you MUST, and I repeat MUST hold your own desired candidate to this same PERFECT standard or you are deemed a HYPOCRITE. So in this case, if Trump’s past foul deeds or statements are the reason you will not vote for him, then you must ALSO use the same reasoning when it comes to Joe Biden who also has plenty of past foul deeds and statements. In other words, you aren’t voting for a politician for the highest office, but a false DEITY who you subjectively see as your god. Your hate stems from this perfect standard of which NO HUMAN BEING can achieve.

President Trump and Joe Biden are sinners as I am as a sinner as YOU are a sinner. They are NOT deities!

And to be fair, there are a limited amount biased Trump supporters who must also NOT deem or claim that he is perfect in actions or deeds or words either or he is in fact your god as well. NO ONE IS PERFECT OTHER THAN GOD!

Lastly, do not try to bring Jesus Christ as a comparison to either candidate. This is beyond disgusting and any logical reasoning. If faith and morals are how you vote in your reasoning, ask yourself who would better protect the most vulnerable in society, namely the unborn. Who would better protect freedoms such as speech, liberty, education, and basic human rights such as religious freedom. You cannot in this reasoning use the past sins of either, but what their actions would be by what they are promising.

And for those who are still confused, Jesus never taught a modernistic social justice gospel. Never once did He advocate taking by force from the rich and give the spoils to the poor. The ONLY equality He taught was that we are ALL sinners in God’s eyes and He is NEVER partial in classes or distinction as to who He saves. He never set subjective “science” and humanism as means of any faith, but always to have faith in Him and His promises. Ask yourself which candidate most closely identifies with this?

Vote wisely! You will most definitely account for it in the end when all arguments end for good.

Thoughts on the Election

With the upcoming election, I will speak here strictly from a Christian standpoint. Based on ALL the disinformation, and Jesus Christ’s being named or used by some who should NOT be using Him, I thought I’d share my thoughts.

FACT: Jesus never taught socialism or a social justice gospel

The Democratic Party in America loves at times to use Jesus Christ in their zeal for a worldly social justice gospel. The fact is from Genesis to Revelation, Jesus never once taught that the poor should steal from the rich or that all must be equal from a social/society standpoint. He only taught the Gospel of salvation! Although all are equal as SINNERS in the eyes of God. Does this mean He didn’t implore to help the poor in need if you are able? NO! But He never said to use force to do so as in a political/social sense. He said “store up your treasures in Heaven”, not “steal your treasures from others for worldly enjoyment”. Social justice is ALWAYS subjective in equality, God’s justice is ALWAYS objective in nature!

FACT: Jesus never promoted “Choice” as in killing the unborn or useless.
I write this in the BOLDEST terms. You cannot call yourself a Christian and support a Democratic party who promotes the killing of the unborn, abortion. And don’t call yourself “a child of God” while trying to convince others that this is biblical or that God would be on board with murder of the most vulnerable. And think again if you believe God would equivocate as to when life begins! You will stand in JUDGMENT at which time your degenerate argument goes up in smoke as you get thrown into the eternal fires of hell. So anyone, and I mean anyone promoting abortion in any form cannot in truth call themselves a Christian or a child of God. You are in fact a child of Satan. This has nothing to do with a man telling a woman what to do with her body, it is called morality in saying that new life in her womb has every right to live as its parents. I have heard all the arguments as to why a woman should have the right to murder her child, they are useless, degenerate, pathetic,, and equivocate on totally depraved immorality.

FACT: Jesus never advocated VIOLENCE and DESTRUCTION to change society for subjective norms.

The only destruction He authorized was done by His own hands, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Great Flood, for example. Judgment and vengeance are His alone. The pleas for justice cannot be carried out outside the law of the land! Jesus would NEVER advocate to burning down a community which had nothing to do with the death of a man. He also would never advocate looting/stealing as a form of reparations! Nor would He advocate filthy language and extreme hatred for others.

FACT: Jesus taught that anger/hate for another equates to murder as it is done in your heart. He also taught that with this evil, things will come out of the heart to the mouth such as lies, slander, vitriol.

The sheer amount of HATE for the current President Trump is quite frankly revealing. The sheer slander and disinformation he endures is something to behold. The hate for him is so intense, he could say the sky was clear, and the haters would want to impeach him because there may have been one distant cloud. Trump is held up to a perfection standard of which his haters would never want applied to themselves. He isn’t God! But those who hold him to perfection whether they admit this or not, view him as a god. I ask you to really think about this! If you think Trump must be perfect in all words or actions, you are holding him up as a god, NOT as an imperfect politician whose term can last only 4 years. And with this, you must ALSO hold your own desired politician to this same standard or you are a HYPOCRITE. I have seen a lot of hypocrisy by the Democratic Party, more so than any other group, institution, or person in my entire life. God HATES hypocrisy, by the way!

Fact: Jesus would promote religious liberty!

Jesus commands all of His actual children to share the Gospel, which is the power unto salvation. He already predicted that they would be hated for doing so as He was hated. Any politician promoting the censorship of Christianity and the Gospel cannot be voted for if you call yourself a Christian.

FACT: Jesus never taught that the earth would be destroyed by climate change.

While earthquakes, floods, and pestilence are all signs of the coming again of Jesus Christ, neither are going to be the cog as to the end. The Bible is clear, only God knows when the day will come and it will come “as a thief in the night”, quietly and when least expected. Certain events will lead up to this end and there are no day predictors such as politicians saying “we have 10 years to live if climate change is not addressed”, as IF that could stem God’s hand. In Psalm 2, it says that God LAUGHS at this derision as world leaders try to stem His hand. Does it mean we should be polluters and not take care of the environment? NO! We should always be thankful and take care of all of God’s creation, but the creation is NOT to be worshiped and the silly notion that man can preempt God’s end or change the timing is truly a DERISION.

Summary: You can vote for whomever you wish. But if you call yourself a Christian and vote against the Gospel in the examples I gave above, you are discerned as NOT a child of God or a Christian. While other so-called “Christian” pastors waffle on this, I and actual Christians cannot. Your votes will be included in your judgment! I see NO semblance of Christianity in the liberal/Democratic Party. Don’t try and call yourself a Christian by voting for evil. Humanism and socialism will NEVER destroy God’s Kingdom nor will it ever be able to change God’s promises and commandments. If you don’t believe in God, I probably did not convince you of a thing. If you are parading around as a “Christian”, you will be discerned by the good or evil you are clinging to.
