Posted on 01/19/2021 8:10:00 AM PST by Onthebrink
I live what many would call the American Dream. Not only do I fly Old Glory from the front porch of the house I own, I own my own small business as well. I am a married man and father who serves his church regularly in a leadership position. I also sit on the board of a local school where my children attend. On top of all of that, I serve my country in the military reserves. I own guns, live in the Bible belt, and grew up without social media but am young enough to follow them and appreciate constantly changing technology.
I have been conservative since my college years when I felt that my country was headed in the wrong direction. My conservatism led me to vote conservative and argue for conservative ideology. I received my bachelor’s degree, and will soon have my master’s from seminary.

Public Enemy #1.
P.S. Keep a toothbrush and clean underwear packed and ready to go. Those items are not handed out in the Biden admin gulags.
If there's any burning love in any hearts for freedom there will be bloodshed before that happens. "Give Me liberty or Give Me Death."
Several thoughts on this article from an old Freeper who “self idenitfies” as a Christian, but falls far short of the goal daily.
“Christians” will be persecuted first, foremost and last. They are and always have been public enemy number one of the devil and all that is evil, along with the Jews. If you are not being mocked and scoffed at for your faith in Jesus, the Christ and God, the Father, you need to do a very serious self evaluation and figure out why not.
Yes, the “church” in America is way overdue for some serious “refining.” Rest assured, it will be here before you know it. Standby!
While we all want God to be on our side, it should be our fervent goal to make sure we are on God’s side as we try to live our lives.
While I anticipate being corrected by Biblical scholars on FR, I can’t think of any Bible verses indicating the importance of being in the middle ground. I can think of a couple that discuss being hot or cold, and left and right, and what commandments are most important to God:
New International Version
15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!
16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
New International Version
32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.
New International Version
35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a]
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]
Whoops!! Boy, talk about poorly written articles:
“Christians” will be persecuted first, foremost and last They are, and always have been, along with the Jews, public enemy number one of the devil and all that is evil,
along with the Jews.
America (Christian nation) is the big Satan.
Israel (Jewish nation) is the little Satan.
Now where have we heard that before and why would “some people” say that?
The title is taken from an Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn essay, who lived this.
Old Glory has been flying from my front porch 3'x5' for over 40 years along with several other smaller US flags, all of which will be taken down on Wednesday afternoon.
My Trump flag will continue to fly, and in place of the US Flag, will be a 3'x5' Gadsden Flag.
The Gadsden Flag will fly until my death or until an American President, duly elected, is back in the White House.
It breaks my heart to take it down, but I have no choice as I will not fly it upside down.
Tough. You can eat crap and die once Biden becomes the men who stole the presidency.
I don’t think you understood my post.
What a wimp! Did he lose his house or something?
2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
