Sunday Faith Post

 Too much is going south, and going south FAST, to even know what to ask prayer for…..

Let me know what YOU think is the MOST important thing we can be praying for these days.

I think I’d pick MEDIA and SOCIAL MEDIA FAIRNESS…..

What about you?

Mark 9:29  And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

    BOCOPRO….so wise, thanks…excellent.

    ED; absolutely….might be the ONLY thing that will turn us around.

    KID: THAT is what I’ve meant when I say Biden just might be the one to be so horrible even centrist Dems could vote Republican in 2022! Well put.

    MUSTANG: Gratitude is the key………for our lives. I know my own Bible study group and I’ve been talking about being quarantined, not seeing family and all those challenges and remembering that it’s not hard to find things to be grateful for and how that lifts us up.

    LET’S ALL PRAY FOR ALL THOSE THINGS MENTIONED….bringing people back to Christian faith, the end of PC and return of common sense, for things to go downhill so EVERYONE wakes up and says THIS HAS TO STOP!, and our own prayers for our families and loved ones who are caught in this leftwing nightmare.

    I JUST HEARD TWO MINUTES OF FAREED ZACARIAS ON CNN…TALKING ABOUT THE PROTESTERS IN THE MOST SMARMY, BELITTLING WAY……….NEVER ONCE REMEMBERING THE HORRID PROTESTS OF SPRING/SUMMER. BECAUSE HE LIKED THOSE. FRIGHTENING.

    Sorry Z, but why would voting Republican do us any good?

    As an aside, and I know that Covid is real for people you know, but have you seen pics of the Natl Guard, packed in, sleeping on marble floors in the Capitol and without masks or doing social distancing. Really tired of the BS…

    @ Kid:
    Agreed. Voting republican is tantamount to kissing your own ass goodbye.
    The overriding concern for the majority might be how soon do we each get our $2,500, before or after President Harris slithers into the Oval Office?

    **** Fifty years ago one could buy a new american made car for those two and 1/2 g’s, today one can buy a set of four new foreign made tires plus a fee for disposal of your old tires.

    @Peter, yea I remember a hot rop line model 1968 Camaro was going for $2,500. It’s been a good while that you could buy one for less than $25,000 for the low end model. So, about 10 to 1 on the inflation from 1970 to say 2010.. And medical ? You can’t even come up with an inflation ratio for medical. Suffice to say it is unaffordable. Soon it will be unavailable.

    Well, I have to respect history on the repubs. This is not just my feelings on the matter. They had both houses during the first 6 years of GW Bush. Didn’t do Anything. Nothing. Had both houses for DJT’s first two years, not only did they not do anything, they actually came up with their own version of obammycare after every stinkin one of them ran on the promise of repealing obamacare. They actually tried to take ownership of that medical abortion.

    I’m done voting.

    Worse yet, the repubs could have created legislation to keep us from having elections that can be stolen this easily. VOTER picture ID card with one time use like Z told us about in use in Germany – and software created that is open and verifiable back to each ballot tied to each unique voter ID. Racist to require Voter ID ? How about this – Every black person in America gets a picture voter ID card regardless of owning or not citizen documentation. We’ll even come to their house, take their picture and produce and hand them the card on the spot. Not black? You better have documentation.

    In regards to my BS comment, it wasn’t just about the heavy handed Covid stuff. It is Everything in our outside world in America – the world for that matter. Everything. Literally Drowning in BS everytime you expose yourself to the outside world. Didn’t used to be like that. Plus there are so many people down with all of it making it that much worse. I’m not going to be spending much time or energy on it.

    On the topic of BS . . . a snippet excerpted from today’s rant:

    Oh well . . . . it’s sure gonna be nice come early February when all the unity and economic growth and racial healing magically introduced by the Biden/Harris administration kicks in, ain’t it.

    And how pleasant it’ll be when all those hateful Trumpist Nazis are driven from office in the House and Senate and the Swampisteros can begin removing the archaic conservatives from the Supreme Court.

    So much simpler when half a dozen companies headed by billionaires make all the decisions about ethics and morals and political correctness for us, the Apple, Google, Twitter, Amazon guys.

    Yeah, much better. As Goebbels taught us, control the information and you can dictate how it is presented, discussed, discarded, or spun. They can make anyone who has only partial data look foolish and biased, whether they are or not. Kinda like the Hands up/don’t shoot myth and the BLM “movement.”

    Free speech becomes a fantasy, a chimera, used only when it gives advantage to the information monopolists. It doesn’t make bullshit true, but it does allow the bullshit artists to get away with it. It’s called propaganda. And the most effective way to get out the message you want people to hear is to shut down all the competition and change the subject.

    The modus operandi is that the system tells us what it wants us to hear. The system then presents its lies. Then it lies about the lies. Then it lies about lying about the lies. Eventually it makes you doubt your own knowledge.

    I may have mentythis before but bears repeating: on July 22, 1958 I was admitted to Christ Hospital in Jersey City, NJ withType I diabetes. Back then if you were admitted with a hangnail the hospital stay was 10 days: yes 10 days. My mother received a bill for $900- yes $900.00. How do I remember? I gave my mom $700 towards the bill from my paper route savings. Today it’s $7.00 for the visitors parking garage. I believe in NYC at Columbia Presbyterian it was $25-50 per daily parking last year when my wife visited her daughter after heart surgery.

    Don’t agree at all…Republicans will always be better than ANY Democrat and if that’s my choice, that’ll be my vote. I’m also cheered by the younger Republicans in Congress who are trying to stand firm.
    Had we an honest media, we’d be seeing their efforts far more……

    BUNKERVILLE’s right…Prayer is about all we’ve got, as I quoted from Mark in my post.

    BOCOPRO; i believe it’s not only Republicans disagreeing with the way our leftwing social media is censoring.

    Yes, Z. Repubs are generally better than ANY Democrat in this day.

    This will be my top prayer, and going out to my bible study:
    “That the people of God are in the word of God and submitted to the will of God. That we adhere to the gospel and be faithful to the privilege of life and ambassadorship you’ve bestowed on us.”
    AND
    “that You, Lord, will subvert the plans of the wicked against your people and your purposes. Turn their efforts against them, and frustrate them with the futility of one trying to push the beachball under the water.”

    The most important thing we can pray for? I’d say being worthy of making it into heaven ’cause things are going downhill so fast! Look not only at our politics, but at the whole world. Over crowded, starvation, natural disasters, unhinged immorality, lack of common sense (gender I.D., etc). Add to that the attempt by big tech to take control of the world aided by COVID-19, its a no-brainer. We are in turbulent times and things are progressing (digressing?) very rapidly.

    @ Kid and Peter
    Anyone who understands crony capitalism won’t bother to vote because they know that our country is so irreversibly corrupt; the only people who end up on the winning side are those who are financially invested in lawmakers. It doesn’t matter which political party the crony capitalist identifies with because they stand to make a ton of money whenever the pendulum swings back in their direction. For them, American politics is a win-win (wait your turn) proposition, and the only losers are those who mistakenly think WE THE PEOPLE control our nation’s destiny. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    We are in a spiritual war – no mistake!

    @ Ed “A spiritual awakening in the land.” We’ve pray for that in our bible study. I actually tuned in to John MacArthur’s church this morning and was soooo glad I did. The county/city (not clear) threw everything at them after they decided to open up again. There was the general threat to shut off the water and power of anyone like that. When 4 staffers of 240 were positive for Covid the media trumpeted it as an epidemic at the church. They have been harassed with multiple “inspections,” fined weekly and hauled into court 9 times. At the last one the judge said to the governing authority “I don’t want to see you here again over this!” The church has leased a parking lot 2 blocks away from the county for 45 years. They got a 30-day notice to vacate without explanation. Also overturned in court.

    They’ve held 11 weddings and 14 funerals in the lockdown, and provided temporary jail quarters for the LAPD during the riots, plus meals and bibles.

    They’ve added 1,000 new members! One young man came to buy a particular bible for his brother in prison. The brothers grew up in the neighborhood and always called it “that church that everybody goes to.” (It’s crammed into an old, rundown residential neighborhood where people stream in from off-site parking in 2 directions – very visible.) Brother got saved in prison. Told the free brother to “get over there to that church that everybody goes to” and he did.

    Merkel: according to Bloomberg Armin Laschet who won the party election is the only one of the 3 candidates who bears no grudge against Merkel. Opinion is mixed on whether he will become Chancellor. But what I found most intriguing in this article was the description of Laschet as “jovial.” So, so un-Germanic.

    But you know my Mr. Z was!!!

    Have had lunch with MacArthur at Wilma’s and, ever since then, have tried to get to admiring him again..so far, no go. I threw a CD right out the window of his, full of anti Catholic idiocy. My cousin left that church after a private mtg with MacArthur where he asked “And you think AIDS is God’s punishment?” Answer was YES. My straight cousin left never to return.

    Not saying he hasn’t done a LOT of good..and I’m still trying.

    Understand how you feel about MacArthur. Still, he’s a bulwark right now, at the point of the spear with a solid board and the holy spirit behind him. When most of the jail chaplains bailed, his church supplied the need. Lots of other stuff no one sees, putting love in action. I too think God has pulled back His protection which allowed a lot of these new thorns in the side to our wicked society. Not prepared to declare it “punishment” but AIDS has a lot of company in that basket.

    My German teacher could also be jovial, in a German sort of way. What does she have in common with Mr. Z? Lived here a long time. In fact, from age 13 she grew up in the Dominican Republic and reflected that in her manner, too.

    Oh – the NRA. I was unhappy to read the financial goings on if they are accurate as stated. They are the principal game and I expect them to work like true believers. I think this move gets them out of the clutches of the rabid attorney general of New York, the same one going after Trulmp. At least that’s the strategy. Re-organize and register in Texas. The way that’s going they should pick Idaho.
