“Without regard to life expectancy, material wealth, or available government programs, it seem abundantly clear from the Bible and Christian tradition that God wants us to honor our parents and our elders. It is one of our great privileges and historic responsibilities to care for those older than we are a to look out for their best interests, as their minds and bodies grow weak.

“The concepts of estate planning is sound and biblical. In the Old Testament and the New, we are encouraged to plan wisely for the future, to soberly count the costs before we proceed.

The Divorce Industry – “ Marriage is a covenant relationship established before God. Divorce is the destruction of that covenant. Divorce has a devastating and far-reaching impact on the lives of those directly involved and even on the rest of us, who aren’t so directly involved. We all pay heavy price for divorce. The pain from a divorce radiates out into the community surrounding the divorcing couple like waves from a rock tossed into a pond, disrupting and disturbing friendships ad family relationships, sometimes even other marriages.” To read more, see The Believer’s Guide to Legal Issues.

I just finished the book, The Duck Commander Family; How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynastly.  I encourage you to take the time to read this book.  I don’t like to give away the ending of a book, but the book ends . . .

“Don’t take yourself to seriously, laugh a lot, enjoy your time with family, and appreciate the unique talents of others.  Trust God, love your neighbors, say you’re sorry, forgive, and work hard.  Sit down to a good meal, turn off your cell phone, respect your elders, and, of course get out in the woods and enjoy some ol’ frog legs  That’s the Robertson way!”  ~ The Duck Commander Family written by Willie and Korie Robertson with Mark Schlabach. 

 

 

They’ve Crossed the Line – A Patriot’s Guide to Religious Freedom

I recently read PA State Representative Stephen Bloom’s book They’ve Crossed the Line A Patriot’s Guide to Religious Freedom.  What a great book!  The forward is written by Senator Rick Santorum.  It is a quick read and I encourage you do take the time and read it.  So often we as Americans are told we do not have our freedoms and so many people throw their hands up and walk away.  We do have religious freedoms, no matter if we are at school, work, or in a public place.  It’s time more Christians stood up and fought.

They crossed the line

April 15th

(The Andy Andrews book How Do You Kill 11 MILLION PEOPLE? he writes . . . ) “ “Look, I’m not the smartest guy in the world, but neither am I incredibly stupid. I believe that most folks like me find the days and weeks leading up to April 15 to be – how should I put this?- stressful. Not because we object to paying tax, but because we fear doing it incorrectly and having to deal with the IRS if we have done so!
The US tax code is so convoluted and bewildering that few of us completely understand it. Yet many politicians actually derive power from it. Through the years, congressional representatives and senators have manipulated the tax code for myriad reasons, such as accepting donations or helping powerful members of their districts back home. In any case, a complex tax code provides a certain cover for shady wheeling and dealing at election time; therefore, there is not much incentive for politicians to simplify the process.”

Know who is on the ballot before going to the polls . . .

(The Andy Andrews book How Do You Kill 11 MILLION PEOPLE? he writes . . . ) “ “If we don’t understand honesty and integrity from American’s leadership non – and reward that integrity with our votes – our leaders will lack the fortitude to make the hard decisions that must be made to change course.” “President James A. Garfield issued a warning widely reported in the press . . . He said, Now, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruptions. If it be intelligent, brave, and purse, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in national legislature. Then he added, If [one hundred years from now] the next centennial does not find us a great nation . . . it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling political forces.”
