Love......what the world needs now...no not just for some but for everyone

Thursday, November 08, 2012



I only hope that everything I heard, read or saw during this campaign for President of the United States is "Not True".....we are in for a bumpy ride. Not to say that if the other candidate had got all the votes...things would change much....we would still be in for a bumpy ride.

The truth is you can not legislate morality!!! Never! If you could the first laws that were just and full of truth would have worked. Those ten commandments would have been all we needed, "ever". If you read the Bible and especially the books of law you will find that they cover everything... everything we are dealing with today. We think we are so progressive here in the 21st Century. Are we really? We are still trying to mess with those first ten laws trying to figure out how we can get by not doing what we should, without looking like we aren't!

Mankind in general is self centered.....which makes us greedy, deceitful, lustful and non compassionate. And when lawmakers, in this christian Nation, have not conquered these in his own heart his laws and government become corrupt.

This government is the government of the people, by the people and for the people.......so when you have everyone grabbing everything for themselves ...like a daily black friday sale, you have.................give me! give me! give me!

One on hand you have people without work crying out to the government to help them by giving them subsidence without work....then you have those that just need a job willing to work but can't find any.......then you have others with the money and power thinking they deserve to have more money and power, some with little regard to the man who worked hard and helped make his fortune. Treated like the dogs under the dinner table Jesus talked about in the scriptures.. Tired...overworked with little to show for it.

Yes, this is still a great country... and if you can figure out a new gadget.....or you sing really good......or play an instrument or play ball....you can make it big...now you have the money and the cycle repeats over and over. I look at the outline of our great cities that was built on the backs of the ordinary man....taking home a pay check big enough to feed and cloth and shelter his family till the next pay check. God forbid anything go wrong......because everything could crumble at his feet. Many times it did crumble. Recessions, depressions....the guy at the bottom of this totem pole lost everything while the guys at the top ate high on the hog. Teachers, nurses, childcare workers, laborers, factory workers miners,and others.... as there employers became richer.......they became poorer. They formed unions and things became better and then unions became greedy forcing more benefits and wages and soon companies were in trouble.........
Today in 2012 we find jobs being taken to other countries......less wages enough to even pay for transportation across the seas...and bigger profit.

The truth is this can not go on forever.... have you heard the scripture..."Give and it shall be given unto you". That is true...give a job and the money he spends will come back to you. Soon US that is us....will not have the money to buy if companies do not give us the jobs and fair wages to buy the products, and use the services they provide and all will fail. "To whom much is given much is required" so those at the top need to be concerned.

Jesus said the key to all the commandments was love! Love God that means his laws....what ever he says don't do .....don't do it. And what ever He says to do ...Do it with all your heart. And love your neighbor as you love yourself. If we love God and abide by his laws ...government will not have to make more laws. Government could get smaller.... there would be no war, no hunger or homeless, there would be no more abortions and no adulterers...there would be no more thieves and murderers. Confusion would go away and truth would reign.

Only when we love God and people, more than we love things or money or power.. will things fall into place....you can not legislate that....it comes from the heart.

I am afraid that all our idols will have to come down before we truly see. I pray for US.

    You perfectly articulated many of the thoughts that have been rolling around in my head lately. Thank you for sharing, and for the reminder that love really is the answer to all of the problems faced by our nation (and world).

    I love this blog and really enjoyed all of the comments by our Spark friends. I was brought up to do the best you can with what you have. I'm 75 and we all took care of each other. Now it seems like it's "You're on your own - deal with it". I didn't vote for Obama and I tried to find some good there but I'm not having any luck. I pray it gets better! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Barack Obama was not sent to be the savior of the world or of me, Jesus was! I'll put my trust in HIM! And I'll rejoice!!!

    Well said. And another young journalist said it better than I could.

America is a very divided country. You cannot separate church and state, the best of our laws come from the best Book, the Bible. God is good, and His ways are best.
This country cannot survive with an ungodly leader who will not uphold God's laws.
God loves everyone, but He does not love everything we do.
I pray that our leaders will be mindful of their great responsibility.

    Great blog full of truth.

My brother-in-law is from Greece. Came to this country years ago with two of his brothers. Started out working for a company and soon decided ... "Hey, we could do this, too." ... Then, they started their own company and were quite successful at it (still are) and have raised 3 families and not only have they provided for those 3 families they also provided jobs for HUNDREDS of workers, thus providing income to hundreds of families.
BUT ... now .... well, the company is NOT going to be able to hire as many people and it is happening all over this country, but, of course, our problems go much deeper, as you have perfected pointed out.

Anyway, I can only say, in my opinion, it is not a simple matter of concentrating on negatives rather than finding the positive, but rather acknowledging that this country and it's leadership is going down a perilious path ... and if there is anything at all that can be done to educate people of this fact, in hopes that some things might be changed (midterm), then surely it is not just something to consider but, instead, an obligation to pursue.

Enjoyed reading your blog and your perspective. Thanks for sharing it!

    What you are saying is so true! I have had people from other countries tell me just in less than the past dozen years this country is no longer the land of opportunity. Yet it is still better than the majority of the world, so why are we trying to become like the rest of the world? For a silver tongued rogue can be all powerful? We just have to ask God for guidance and trust He is ultimately in charge. Sad time for this country.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts
Am not a fan of politics
But we do have Four More Years
And it is up to YOU if you find the positive or concentrate on the negative
One day at a time
