on not losing my mind

Like many of you I have been watching the things going on in the Middle East and here in America. We are certainly seeing events that we have not seen in the past, or at least what we are witnessing is in greater proportion than before. It reminds me of the coming of Christ, as we are seeing so many countries affected and in need of peace. Who will be their peacemaker?

It makes me think of the minds of people with a need to assemble, to rise up to speak against the evil brought against them, the unfairness of those who were set in place to protect them and to see to their own good. After all, isn’t that the makings of a true leader? To protect and lead those who put them in office? Isn’t that what we have been taught to do here in America, to speak against all that is wrong? To speak our minds, to vote?

This isn’t what we are seeing these days. We expect the evil from third world countries, those who are under the harsh rule of the dictator. We hate their treatment but we are certainly aware of it. We do not expect it from our leaders here in America. But, sadly this is exactly what is taking place as Obama’s heavy hand waves away so many rights of the people. Rights that have been enacted by law long before he was ever born, long before those who stood up for what was right ever expected to see a dictator rise from the loins of American soil. But, it is happening before our very eyes and we have been rendered powerless to stop the tirade against freedom. Ok. Breathe.

A few days ago I began to pull together some articles as I again see an uprising in the Evangelical realm. Hehe. If we dare to continue to call it “evangelical”. I like Apprising’s word – evanjellyfish much better. (Thanks Ken!) Why? Because so many who we once adhered to as great teachers of the word of God have lost their backbone to stand for the truth. Instead they gather in groups which they refer to as conferences, doing the good ol buddy routine, endorsing the plans of this one, the success of that one.

They bring in heretical doctrine, an oxymoron in its own terms. One claims, “this is the way, follow me”. They trade literally in the name of Jesus. They forget the church was born and still exists through the power of the Holy Spirit and not through do it my way programs and how to books. But they continue to write them. They need to teach us a method instead of teaching how to be Spirit-led which is what we are supposed to be. They bring in gurus from other religions under the guise of health and deeper spirituality. They teach meditation. They teach yoga. They teach breath prayers. They teach unity. They teach another jesus. Do not be fooled to think otherwise.

We have the technology. We have the documentation.

How many of us were offended at Obama’s remark that America is no longer a Christian nation? It is the one thing I agreed with him on. It is not. America has gone “New Age”.

Right there I am reminded of the return of the Lord when He questioned if He will find faith here. What have we as a Christian nation allowed ourselves to become?

Not only did I feel angry at these things taking place, but I felt ignored. Who is listening to this silly – once a false prophet and was wrong then squat of a middle-aged woman. A woman. It was the woman who held the apple after all. It is the woman who is weaker. The woman who must not be permitted to speak.

It was then I found myself in a silent scream and not for the first time  – – “IF I BE LIKENED TO EVE, WHERE IS ADAM WHO WAS GIVEN THE WORD??”

I am confessing I began to think “why bother” and from there I began to wonder if truly I was losing my mind, not for the first time either. Others don’t seem to concerned about this uprising of evanjellyfish. Maybe everything is ok and I only need to go get a job and trust the people who were put over me to do the right thing. After all we need to unite, right? In our numbers we are stronger. Clothe the naked, feed the poor, see to the needs of those less fortunate.

Hmmm…. and I Hmmm-ed for a few days. I fumed as I Hmmm-ed and slowly simmered in my silent anger.

That was when I stumbled on Ingrid’s blog. I didn’t even know she had a blog! There I saw some of the same articles posted as I had put into my “read it later” file for safe keeping. I realized I was not the only one, and in that one precious thought I realized I was not in the process of losing my mind. Thank God for Ingrid. And thank Him for the others who research and write who have a deeper understanding of things that I know so little of. Because of them I have learned to listen to that bugginess going off in my head – that thing that says this is not right, but won’t let me rest until I find why.

No, I am not crazy. Nor am I finished. Keep reading.

White House Calls For Snitches!

From the White House “blog”-

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov. (emphasis mine)

Listen, save your fellow Americans the hassle of snitching on you. Call the White House, write letters, send faxes and e-mails to Obama, your senators, governors, representatives, etc. It is our right and privilege granted by our Constitution as Americans to question ALL of our leaders and to hold them responsible for every decision they make and for each law they propose. It is their responsibility to provide truthful answers to our questions without branding Americans as conspiracy theorists, crazy or disinformed.

This administration who claimed “transparency” is instead shrouded in darkness!

This “request” by the White House is against our freedom of speech at the most intimate level, our communication with each other, our family and our friends!  Think about it!  What does that say to you??  What will they do with the information once they receive it?

Invite us for a beer?

I am against Obama’s health care reform proposal they way it stands.  Snitch away, I don’t care, as I plan on writing many letters on my own alleviating the need for snitching!

I am against the government making decisions about my health, based on my age, my lifestyle, condition and medical prognosis.

I am against the government paying for abortions.

I am against the government counseling the aged to “die with dignity”  no matter what wording gets slapped on to it.

I am against the government providing illegal aliens with health care that they do not have to pay for.  (Illegal aliens shouldn’t be allowed here, but that’s another topic.)

I am against anyone making a decision based on life and freedom that was given freely to us all by God Almighty -period.

There is no conspiracy in what I and many, many other people are screaming about here. We do not like it. We are not going for it!

Why pay for a product we do not want??? As consumers, whenever we purchase a product we expect that the product to perform according to the claims. In purchasing health care, either through the government or private carrier, whether the money comes from payroll deductions or from paying taxes we would expect the health care to be sane, fair and reasonable, holding the health, safety and welfare of all Americans in high esteem. Health care is a product.

When a product breaks down, we send it back.

Obama’s health care reform is broken, send it back.

It’s gettin’ scary out there guys!
