  • Obama, Hagel pay tribute to Robin Williams

    The sin of narcissistic pride, is #1 on God’s black-list. in fact, according to God, Mr. President, your a shoe-in for an eternity with old cloven-hoof himself.

    Pro 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
    Pro 6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
    Pro 6:18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
    Pro 6:19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

    1Co 6:9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,
    1Co 6:10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

    Rev 21:6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.
    Rev 21:7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
    Rev 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

    This world’s attempt to ignore or stamp out God’s Truth on such eternal issues will not stop God’s Holy Justice from being carried out on those who refused to repent and draw from His his mercy and forgiveness in this life.

  • “Man Dies, Mourned Only by Strippers”(ROBIN WILLIAMS /LOIS CK)

    i remember when Williams mercilessly ridiculed Rush Limbaugh just after the news had broken about Rush’s addiction to pain meds, and within two weeks of that Tonight Show appearance, RW himself checked into a substance-abuse clinic. A strange kind of hypocrisy. Defecating on the values of at least half of your potential audience is never a good career move. In the old days you rarely knew to which party any given celebrity belonged. They knew it was bad etiquette and bad business. Then the modern age hit, and it was almost impossible to find entertainers without constant in-your-face political agendas.

    Try living on SS retirement or disability with failing health and virtually no savings and watching Obama bankrupt SS at a shocking pace and destroy the middle class and small businesses to fund handouts to non-citizens and 3rd generation welfare parasites.

    Wait — now I’m depressed.

    But my family would be instantly impoverished if I off myself. And paying into SS for a lifetime would be for naught. The checks stop when you die. Unless you’re much younger than I. And my insurance would pay nothing if they can prove I offed myself.

    Deep, clinical depression, exacerbated by drug problems, legal or illegal, and our natural temperament and genetics, can sometimes make us virtually impervious to reasoning and encouragement. I know. And many of you do also. I’m sorry the man was going through this deep darkness. He apparently could not see a Betty White type come-back in his future, but if anyone had the talent to pull it off he did. His addictions may have had much more to do with this valley than any combination of the other factors above. Imagine if all those factors seem to be falling in on you at once.

    I’m sure many friends and family wish they could’ve gotten to him and tried at least one more intervention. Any of us would pray that God might just take us out of this life before we reach such a level of despair.

    The unconfessed sins of a lifetime, poured out to psychiatrists and not to God, add perhaps the greates burden of all. I know that people with great religious faith can succumb to severe depression also. I’m certainly not trying to condemn the man. But we live in a society based on Darwinian materialism that tells us we are simply animals who will someday die and become nothing more than
    “worm-food” & “fertilizer” (Dead Poets Society) makes the inevitable valleys of despair much worse.

    The philosophy of Macbeth is certainly nothing to cling to during the storms of depression and misfortune either:

    Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    Work, plan, prepare as best you can and seek out family, friends, and the Lord when life seems to be collapsing in on you:

    Mat 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
    Mat 6:26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
    Mat 6:27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
    Mat 6:28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,
    Mat 6:29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
    Mat 6:30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
    Mat 6:31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
    Mat 6:32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
    Mat 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
    Mat 6:34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

    Psa 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    Psa 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.
    Psa 23:3 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    Psa 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
    Psa 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
    Psa 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

    Rev 21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.
    Rev 21:2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    Rev 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
    Rev 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
    Rev 21:5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
    Rev 21:6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.
    Rev 21:7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
    Rev 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” {I’m a minister, retired and living on disability and my wife’s small Christian school teacher’s salary, by the way}

    That’s what I have — but the ‘Ectreme’ with extended 7 round mag. My other CC weapons are a Taurus Titanium revolver snubbie with shrouded hammer in .38/.357, and a Taurus 738 semi-auto in .380.

    One of the best buys offering quality and a decent price:

    I am heart-sick today and grieving for my deluded back-slidden country, which I love. I still trust that “all things work together for good to them that love God.” And I still believe that God is firmly in control:

    “But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased” (Ps. 115:3); “My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure” (Isa. 46:10); “He doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth, and none can stay His hand” (Dan. 4:35).

    To quote A.W. Pink quoting Spurgeon:

    “There is no attribute more comforting to His children than that of God’s Sovereignty. Under the most adverse circumstances, in the most severe trials, they believe that Sovereignty has ordained their afflictions, that Sovereignty overrules them, and that Sovereignty will sanctify them all. There is nothing for which the children ought more earnestly to contend than the doctrine of their Master over all creation—the Kingship of God over all the works of His own hands—the Throne of God and His right to sit upon that Throne.

    On the other hand, there is no doctrine more hated by worldings, no truth of which they have made such a football, as the great, stupendous, but yet most certain doctrine of the Sovereignty of the infinite Jehovah. Men will allow God to be everywhere except on His throne. They will allow Him to be in His workshop to fashion worlds and make stars. They will allow Him to be in His almonry to dispense His alms and bestow His bounties.

    They will allow Him to sustain the earth and bear up the pillars thereof, or light the lamps of heaven, or rule the waves of the evermoving ocean; but when God ascends His throne, His creatures then gnash their teeth, and we proclaim an enthroned God, and His right to do as He wills with His own, to dispose of His creatures as He thinks well, without consulting them in the matter; then it is that we are hissed and execrated, and then it is that men turn a deaf ear to us, for God on His throne is not the God they love. But it is God upon the throne that we love to preach. It is God upon His throne whom we trust.”
