Good Friday-2014

In Romans 5:7-8, Paul declares…

“Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. (8) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

The Crucifixion:

Matthew 27:35-37
(NIV)
35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. 36 And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. 37 Above his head they placed the written charge against him: this is jesus, the king of the jews.

Matthew 27:45-53
(NIV)
The Death of Jesus

45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”

48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49 The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”

50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

In John 15:13, Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

Unthinking Obedience

Unthinking obedience

Thomas Jefferson:
When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. Thanks to theblacksphere.net

When we quit questioning the “TRUTH” of what we are told, when we accept government lies, when we go along to get along, we will end up like This!

I have been watching the promise of Obama to fundamentally change the USA evolve for 5 long years, our family has cringed in horror and disbelief while the socialist policies of “The Transformation’s” have ATTEMPTED to be pushed and shoved down our throats to our very souls.

We see the denigration of the Constitution of the United States of America, the contempt for The Bill Of Right’s.

At Forbes overwhelming disdain that obama has for the conservative American people and our former allies.

It’s fear of reprisal from obamas government, from “progressive” groups which do not really care about
diversity, equality and freedom of speech. They care that THEIR viewpoint is seen, heard, and enforced regardless of who gets hurt.

Christians have been labeled “THE ENEMY”, terrorist groups- better watch out for those Evangelicals and Catholics cause they tell the TRUTH. A concept not equally shared by obama and his administration.

“Mozilla recently forced its CEO, Brendan Eich,( who co-founded mozilla) to resign over his personal support for traditional marriage. The firing followed a vicious smear campaign against Eich by dating website OKCupid, in which OKCupid blocked Mozilla users from visiting their website.” (Thanks to Why FireFox is Blocked.)He refused to go along to get along.

When did it become acceptable for total reliance to fall to the Federal government? When that very same government caused the economic crisis, with hundreds of billions of dollars of stimulus did nothing but create more debt, caused more job loss than at any time in our history. This same government that claims we are better protected by smaller and underfunded military. This is obamas intention to make us go along to get along.

At Wall Street Journal it’s the Dissing of the Office of The President

And let’s not forget Sen. harry reid who is so twisted with fear and hate that he will try to force us to believe That the Koch Brothers are THE evil in the land. In spite of violating the Ethics rules reid has enormous amounts of bitter diatribe against the Koch Brothers on his senate.gov page.

Of course reid would have us believe that George Soros did not say this in 2006 when responding to questions “the main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States”, he also responded that “it happens to coincide with the prevailing opinion in the world. And I think that’s rather shocking for Americans to hear. The United States sets the agenda for the world. And the rest of the world has to respond to that agenda. By declaring a ‘war on terror’ after September 11, we set the wrong agenda for the world. … when you wage war, you inevitably create innocent victims.”

But really thats alright what better friend can you have than the Attorney General for the USA. who says it’s all good.Eric Holder To State Attorneys General: You Don’t Have To Enforce Laws You Don’t Like. Just go along to get along.

Saw this yesterday on twitter.

reid is certifible

Best response that I saw was,
Brandon Morse@TheBrandonMorse
Perhaps we can tattoo it on their arms so we know for sure. @SenatorReid 2:16 PM – 7 Apr 2014.

Like I said you have to go along to get along.
In Nazi Germany, it progressed from programs, to yellow stars, to torture and death. I wonder how long that will take, for those who REFUSE to go along to get along.

James Madison:“I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”
If we refuse to stand against tyranny then we deserve the consequences of going along to get along.

Wednesday Hero-Lt. Milton Ricketts

This post was suggested by Michael

Lt.
Milton Ricketts

28 years old from Baltimore, Maryland

USS Yorktown (CV-5)

August 5, 1913 – May 8, 1942

U.S.<br />
Navy

For extraordinary and distinguished gallantry above and beyond the
call of duty as Officer-in-Charge of the Engineering Repair Party of
the U.S.S. Yorktown in action against enemy Japanese forces in the
Battle of the Coral Sea on 8 May 1942. During the severe bombarding of
the Yorktown by enemy Japanese forces, an aerial bomb passed through
and exploded directly beneath the compartment in which Lt. Ricketts’
battle station was located, killing, wounding or stunning all of his
men and mortally wounding him. Despite his ebbing strength, Lt.
Ricketts promptly opened the valve of a near-by fireplug, partially
led out the fire hose and directed a heavy stream of water into the
fire before dropping dead beside the hose. His courageous action,
which undoubtedly prevented the rapid spread of fire to serious
proportions, and his unflinching devotion to duty were in keeping with
the highest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service. He gallantly gave
his life for his country.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so
others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them
Hero.

Those Who Say That We’re In A Time When
There Are No Heroes, They Just Don’t Know Where To Look
