Welcome to my site

What can I say? I'm so pleased that you've come here. I've spent 5 years blogging, more than that building websites and have been writing "professionally" since 2003. I'm here to help writers with their writing, encourage people through this life, and point them to Jesus. That's the most important thing. So stay tuned. Check this site regularly as "some of the features" may change. I'll need help from time to time, because I'm not perfect. If you're perfect, please go to another site. I'm pretty sure you won't fit in here.

Unbalanced Scales

I'm sure everyone in the U.S. already knows that we are in danger. The problem is that so much of the rhetoric and the old rules are just antagonizing things.

For instance, only weeks ago all the media could do was talk about going over a fiscal cliff. Now, however, that cliff seems to have disappeared and they are talking about spending ceilings. I don't know about you, but this tells me that the people in Washington (D.C) don't know what they're talking about.

Then comes the IRS looming on the horizon. It's hard enough to get around with their hands in our pockets year round, but they expect an extra-special bonus via our Income Tax. We've been gritting our teeth and baring this for years, but now it's becoming harder and harder to find the forms to fill out, even if you can understand them, so you can send them in and pay that tax. I'm of the inclination that if they want my money they should come and fill out all the forms and make it easy. I'm not one of these people who expect freebies. It's just that the founding fathers didn't get paid, and if they did it was by their district, and probably in feed or livestock. I say we go back to that. You want to get out of our $15 trillion debt, then stop paying the people who aren't listening to us when we say, "No taxes."

I know, that's idealistic, but this country was built on ideals, and hard work made it work. That is until the government decided to pay for those who didn't want to work. Take a good idea and present it to Congress or the Senate and the first thing they do is appoint a special task force to investigate the problem. Oh, and all those tax problems we face, they do not face. How'd that happen. Whatever happened to "We the People..?"

Yeah! The Republicans Won

As the mid-term elections complete Republicans are hooting and hollering about how they won.  I hope so, but it remains to be seen.  So much has gotten twisted around in the last 6 years that I really wonder if America can be fixed.  Let's look at what the Republicans need to do (politically speaking) to turn things around:

They need to close our borders and institute a fair and reasonable immigration policy.
They need to get us out of this financial debt.  (Did you know most of the U.S. belongs to China?)
They need to decide what to do about ISIS,  and other terrorist organizations.
They need to contain and hopefully find a cure for Ebola.
They need to use the Bible as the Book to understanding Law.
Prayer needs to be re-instituted in public places, especially in school.
Re-institute the reading of the Bible in schools, or at least let kids form Bible clubs.
Marriage between a man and a woman needs to be re-established.
Build up the military.
Renew benefits for the military.
...and many more.

The current administration has been unraveling everything our Founding Fathers fought to gain.  He and his followers look at the Constitution of the United States as suggestions, not as law.  Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, the Right to Bear Arms, are on the brink of becoming a thing of the past.

But let me take you on a different path.  Most Christians I know want to blame Obama, or one of his appointees, as the problem.  It isn't.  While we live in a Democracy it is God who tears down and lifts up.  Didn't God send Israel to Babylon so they would learn not to worship idols?  Can we say that God has appointed certain people to chastise our nation, that He might once again bless it?  Yes, we surely can.  Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12 that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood.  This is a spiritual war, not a physical one, and playing party politics isn't going to be the answer.  We find that we must put on Jesus as our armor.  And we are reminded of the words of God spoken to Solomon, long ago, "If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways; THEN shall I forgive their sin and heal their land.

So, did the Republicans win?  Not really.  When the Christians in America get serious with God and humble themselves before Him, as for His forgiveness, and turn from our wicked ways, that will set off a chain reaction that will renew this land.  If we refuse to do this, then we shall be turned out, some even cut off eternally from God, and this land will get worse and worse.  Why should we renew our friendship with Israel?  Because it's the right thing to do.  Yet even then we see God's Word speaking to us on this point, "I will bless them that bless thee (Abraham and his descendants), and curse them that curse thee."  So bless them already so we will be blessed.  If you can understand only one thing let it be that.  "We the People..." will rise or fall based on how we, as a country, relate to Israel.  I'm not saying they are perfect either, only that the promise is true.  Secondly, we have to see this as something greater than politics or we are doomed to failure. - David Brollier
