Power of the Commandments and Natural Law

     The most useful things that I have found in early Jewish and Christian writings is the idea that the commandments and the natural law are the most powerful tools that a man can use to his advantage.  I believe that the commandments that can be consistent with natural law are the ones that God himself established.  The reason is because a writing may or may not be true, but the natural law is always consistent and has worked the same way since the day of creation.  The natural law is always true; it works consistently and it is perfect.  It can be used to make informed decisions, good judgments, and it can also be used to root out the liars.   It cannot be distorted unless a man allows his mind to be twisted by other men with lies or misinformation.
     The other side of the commandments and natural law is evil.  We know that evil is weak and it always produces bad results.  And the problem with evil is that it seems to put us into a mental stupor.  This stupor clouds the mind and somehow allows it to make bad decisions.  This state usually comes to a man in the form of a temptation, and if that temptation is acted upon, there will always be a bad result.  These bad results show up in the form of bad government and bad religion.  People make bad decisions because many times they don't even know it is evil.  The result of bad choices is always the same: bad.  However, all of us have that "gut" feeling that something is either good or bad.  The problem is that we don't listen to that latent sense of justice inside of our minds and souls.  We tolerate stupidity as if it were intelligent and that it had something to offer.  But the fact is that evil and stupid offer nothing to anyone; only evil and failure are attached to it.
     The solution to evil and stupid is to disengage from it.  That is not always easy, but with a little effort in can be done.  I actively try to use what has proven to me to be effective in fighting against it.  I actually use the commandments that are confirmed by natural law.  I use them in this fashion because I know that the evidence of God is contained within nature and that nature is always consistent.  Natural law is something that is clearly observable and can be used as a hedge against evil things.  Whereas any writings are not necessarily true to the natural law.  I still use writings but I judge their veracity with the natural law.  And a writing is only secondary information to any fact or spiritual observation.  A thought or an idea must be confirmed with facts and truth.  Anything else will lead to error.
     In an early Christian writing (I can't remember which one) I had read how a man tested a spirit or an apparition.  If the vision's feet touched the ground then it was a man, and if the vision's feet did not touch the ground, it was a spirit.  But the other interesting statement was that he would repeat the commandments in front of this spirit.  If the spirit remained, he knew it was good.  However, if the spirit left, then he knew that the spirit was evil.  So, I got the idea that if I am being tempted with any kind of sin, if I repeat the commandment I'm being tempted with, the temptation goes away.  The results are remarkable.  They parallel these writings.  If I start talking about the commandments in a loud enough voice in a crowd, the people will start to vanish.  I've been known to do this to clear an area where I wish to be alone. I did this once in a crowd of about 20 people who were standing around some park benches.  I was talking to a friend about the commandments showing him how powerful they were and why it is worthwhile to keep them.  I used a fairly loud voice, and within just seconds, I cleared out the whole area.   Now, the people who don't mind hearing the commandments, those are the people whose company I enjoy, but the ones who can't take it are not the type of people with which I want to associate.   I've written about this in other articles, and the feedback I get from other people is that this worked the same way for them.  It is such an easy principle to understand, yet I never even thought about it until a few years ago.  Evil cannot stand the thought of anything good.  The good and the evil spirit cannot peacefully co-exist.  They are not compatible in any way, shape, or form.
     And this is how mankind can get rid of evil by advocating for the commandments and the natural laws which are always consistent and produce good results.  The natural law always produces good results, and as a former businessman, getting good results is really the whole point of having it and living a good life.  There's no point to anything if a man continuously gets bad results.  The political and religious systems that I know of always seem to get bad results no matter how well-intended they may seem to be.  However, the commandments and the natural laws always get good results and they improve the living conditions of all men.
     The next time you get tempted with doing some evil deed, stop for a moment, then repeat the commandment with which you are being tempted with breaking, and the urge to break it will go away.  There's no reason for any man to be in bondage to evil thoughts or evil deeds.  Even thinking about the commandments will get rid of the evil.  Try it, you won't be disappointed with the results.

Musings of a Text-tard

Updated 12/12/15

My Definition of Text-tard

  1. A person who has an unrelenting obsession with sending text messages to the extent that it affects their personality.
  2. One who walks the public streets, shopping malls, and drives reading and sending texts.  You know who you are so don't try to deny it.  You would look like a complete idiot, but it seems that almost everyone else is doing  it too.
  3. Will interrupt personal conversations with live people to answer some other text-tard's message.
  4. Someone who sends texts while driving--endangering anyone within a 100 mile radius of the car.  Depending upon how bad the accident is it would appear that no amount of potential carnage will stop a text-tard from sending the next message.  If only those pedestrians had stayed off the sidewalk! I've seen drunk drivers do a better job driving than a text-tard.
     I remember when I left prison in August of 2009 (violating a law that doesn't exist)  and as I walked the streets I couldn't believe my eyes.  I saw a lot of people just walking around with their cell phones and staring at them as if they were navigation instruments.  I really wasn't up to speed as I had been out of circulation for 60 months. When I got to the half-way-house, the clerk who was checking me in was constantly on her phone.  I first thought it was a part of their intake system.  I realized that she was actually screwing around with her friends while I sat there doing nothing.  I didn't remember if text messaging was around much in 2004 but it sure got quite popular over the years.
     When I was staying with my son, one day I needed to speak with him before I left.  As a courtesy, I knocked on his bedroom door and he didn't answer.  I thought it was odd and I tried the door--it was locked.  So, doing the only obvious thing I could, I sent him a text message, and true to his status as a text-tard he answered me right away.  Wow!  If I want the attention of someone, I can send them a text.  Why bother addressing the kid in person when I can just send him a text.  So I found myself becoming a bit of a text-tard myself.  You know the saying; if you can't beat them......
     Recently, I was having lunch with the same son, and we're sitting down at the table.  Now, I have to drive 50 miles one way to visit him, which means that it will cost me a least $15.00 in gas plus another $10-$15.00 for the lunch.  So for around $25.00 I can go out with my son and watch him with this stupid grin on his face texting God-knows-who.  I have to ask myself: Is this worth $25.00 and two hours of driving time to come and visit him?  He's a nice kid, but somehow I get the feeling that it would be better just to stay home, keep the $25.00 which would pay for a round of golf with a cart, avoid a two hour drive, and send him a text.  I would get more conversation that way than going out to lunch with him.
     Here's what I find interesting about being a text messaging.  Let's say you want to text someone.  So, I send a text and ask: "How are you today?"  I know that I've gotten on someone's nerves if they don't answer me within an hour or so.  If someone is really disgusted with me, I'll never get back an answer. What usually happens with me is that they must start feeling guilty by not responding, so I'll get a text maybe two weeks later and the conversation continues as if nothing else ever happened.  Then, when you're done sending texts, you just stop.  You don't say, Goodbye, see you later, hope to see you soon-- you just stop texting them as if you just dropped dead.  This is high tech?
     This has to be a recipe for disjointed relationships.  There is a beginning but no definite end.  Or, on the other hand, there's an end but no real beginning.  I may have started a conversation maybe two weeks ago, and now I'm getting back an answer.  But that time, I forgot why I texted that person in the first place. Once I remember, it really doesn't matter anymore.  I find it to be a strange way of communication.
     To be fair, I can also see the benefits of being a text-tard.  If someone wants to come over a visit me I can tell them to stop by or stay away.  And I don't have interrupt what I was doing for very long.  This gives me some time to clean up my mess in the house before someone comes over.  If I just need to send a short message to someone, I can readily do it with my phone.
     I'm not saying that being a text-tard is bad; it is just different.   When I pay my cell phone bill, it sends me a text telling me that I just paid my bill.  I already knew that....I just did it.  The really cool part about it is getting my bank balance.  Before I go and spend my money, I can double check my balance first. Good thing it's there because my account may have been debited due to a recurring charge on my card I started a two years ago.  This is really Dick Tracy stuff.  I don't do Twaddle or Schmuckbook so I'm not aware of all of those possibilities.
     Between emails and texting,  I'm thinking I don't have to deal with people much anymore.  Just send them a text and everything is coming up roses.
     Oh, I can also just let my spelling go down the toilet.  I can text things like: r u going to the store?  Think of all the keystrokes that will be saved by writing r u.  The one I like is: lol.  I know I've made someone happy when I get back an lol.  Maybe along with an: r u crazy lol.  My favorite is: ROFLMAO.  I'm not going to write that one out as most of you know what it means and this is a family blog.  Oh, consider the smiley faces!  They're so cute.  The problem is that I keep staring at the stupid things trying to figure out if there is a soul in the images that move.
     I sure hope they don't make these things for our pets.  You know how annoying it would be for my dogs to start texting each other from one room to the other.  Spot: "Hey, Angel, don't poop in the bedroom anymore."  Angel: "Spot, mind your own business, he ain't looking.  He thinks I'm so cute that he won't do anything."  The dogs in the neighborhood could all conspire together and start barking all at once at 3:00am in the morning demanding better living conditions.  The possibilities are endless.  What would really get my goat would be if the texting dogs got that stupid grin on their faces while they are becoming text-tards.  Let's hope that never happens.

Six Thousand Years

(Editor's Note:  I wrote most of this chapter from my book while I was in prison.  I had a lot of leisure time and that is the only reason I was able to notice this.  I had received the Book of Enoch and the Epistle of Barnabus.  I'm still not sure what to make of it as I have an inherent distrust of writings unless I can confirm there veracity.  My math comes out about the same as the Mayan's but my information came from an early Jewish writing and an early Christian writing.  What startled me is that the Mayan calendar stop and the Barnabus Epistle seem to be saying similar things.  But what would the Mayan have in common with Jews and Christians?  I put this in my book just because the information is there but I'm not sure what to make of it. My hunch is that nothing is going to happen on December 21st, 2012. It could all be a bunch of trash; I don't know.   I would appreciate it if comments were left on the comment section of this article at the bottom of the page so everyone will have access to them.)

Chapter 48
2012: Has 6000 years already passed?
      Many “Christian” writers say that the tribulation period—as noted in the Book of Revelation—is coming soon, while others say it has already happened. However, there may be more information available than what is contained in the various versions of the Bible. At what point in history is this event going to happen? Or did it already happen? I do not believe that it already happened because the prophecies in the various books are too extreme and simply have not yet occurred. I'm reluctant to go out on a limb and claim that I know when the tribulation period will start, as I don't want to be a false prophet. However, when I received copies of the Book of Enoch and the Epistle of Barnabus I realized that these books do seem to rise to the level of true scripture. Both of these books were removed from use by the “church” between 367AD to 450AD. Perhaps even earlier than that. But we do know that they were considered scripture at that time. I suppose that there was too much truth in these books, and that they didn't fit in with the state agenda of the very pagan Roman Empire. I'm going to write this out so that the reader may know what I see. Whether or not it is true, God only knows, but it is interesting and should be noted.
      Especially, since there is a lot of discussion these days about something big coming in 2012. My opinion is that I think this is correct. As we know in the Epistle ofBarnabus, he speaks of all things coming to an end in 6000 years. The 6000 year has to be put in the proper context. When Barnabus says 6000 years, he probably meant the 364 day year as mentioned in the Book of Enoch. Let's do the math: assuming the first day of creation was around 4000 B.C., and we add the 2000 years since Christ, adds up to 6000 years. Since the calendar we use shows only the time since Christ, the end should have been in the year 2000, and as of this writing we are in the year 2010. So one the surface, it appears that the 6000 years has already passed and that this prophecy would be incorrect. However, by synchronizing from the day of creation, the 364 days in the Book of Enoch and the 365.25 days of the Julian (pagan) calendar, we find that there are 7500 days ahead of real time per the Gregorian/Julian calendar. (6000x364=2,184,000) (6000x365.25=2,191,500) Subtract 2,184,000 from 2191500 and we have a difference of 7500 days. This is assuming that the Book of Enoch is correct and that Barnabus is correct with his number of 6000 years. So if we take that 7500 days and divide it by 365.25 we come up with 20.53 years that are left over. (Remember, the extra day becomes less significant as it gets closer to the end.) Let's take 6000 years subtract 20.53 and we get 5979.47 Now, let's add the 10 years that we are already into over the 2000 and we come up with 5989.47 According to these calculations we are in the 5989.47th year from the day of creation. If we subtract 5989.47 from the 6000 we now have 10.53 years left until the end of all things. From this point in time, it looks like the end of all things will be in the year 2020.5. But there's a problem, if we take into account of the 7 year tribulation period, then the beginning of the tribulation appears to be sometime around 2013.5. My estimate is that the tribulation period is going to be in our lifetime and that these writings were removed to prevent the believers to document their warnings of God's impending judgment.
     There seems to be a feeling of impending doom from the people who think the Mayan calendar indicates the end of the world. It is hard for me to believe anything from the Mayan's because it is a completely different belief system and I have no knowledge of it. My math could be off a little bit, but in my mind, whether the tribulation is coming soon or not, it seems to me the best course of action would be to plan for the worst. This is why repentance is so important and why keeping God's commandments is also important. What I have described here is is a theory, based upon the Book of Enoch and the Epistle of Barnabus. I don't know if it is true as it is a prophecy of sorts, and prophecies can only be reconciled only after the time they are supposed to be fulfilled. However, in my mind, this evidence is compelling and I find it extremely interesting.
     Will there be warning signs of the impending tribulation? In my opinion, I believe there are many. Read the words of Christ in the Gospels. And there seems to be yet more detail in the Book of Enoch: “And in the days of the sinners shall be shortened, and their seed shall be tardy on their lands and fields, and all things on the earth shall alter, and shall not appear in their time: And the rain shall be kept back and the heaven shall withhold (it). And in those times the fruits of the earth shall be backward, and shall not grow in their time. And the fruits of the trees shall be withheld in their time. And the fruits of the trees shall be withheld in their time. And the moon shall alter her order, and not appear at her time. And in those days the sun shall be seen and he shall journey in the evening on the extremity of the great chariot in the west. And shall shine more brightly than the accords with the order of light. And many chiefs of the stars shall transgress the order (prescribed). And these shall alter their orbits and tasks, and not appear at the seasons prescribed to them. And the whole order of the stars shall be concealed from the sinners, and the thoughts of those on earth shall err concerning them, and they shall be altered from all their ways, yea, they shall err and take them to be gods. And evil shall be multiplied among them, and punishment shall come upon them so as to destroy all.” (Book of Enoch Chapter 80) With all of the current controversy about “global warming” and “climate change”, perhaps the beast knows that his time is short. Notice that the conditions will be a continual slide into chaos. And as I write this article, the United States and the rest of the world is sliding into economic chaos. However, either way, this should be a wake-up call for those who have not repented. And for those who have, it is important to guard yourself from being seduced by evil and being cut off.
      While it may be interesting to study all of these prophecies, the fact is that we are totally dependent upon writings that may or may not be true. All of them have to be tested. We must always test our beliefs to make sure that we abide within the truth and have the favor of God. We can do that only by a healthy fear of God and by keeping His commandments. A man is better off by keeping the commandments than to be a “scholar” in the Bible who loses his soul in hell for promoting too many baseless theories that have no value. In the case of this prophesy of Barnabus, the only way we'll know if it is true, is if it happens. But knowledge of it won't do anyone any good without repentance. The only good it will do is to motivate us to get our lives in good order; amending our sinful ways. I want to suggest that there was a motivation for the beast to redo the calendar. Perhaps, it was to cover-up this prophecy. I cannot tell, but according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, it was the Jesuit astronomer Christopher Clavius who made corrections or additions to the existing calendar in 1572 A.D. Leave it to a Jesuit to screw everything up. I know that many who read this will start to speculate about a lot of things regarding the end times. But as you do, just keep in mind that you are not saved by knowing a bunch of “scholarly” drivel and speculation. You are saved by a knowledge and faith in God and Jesus Christ. There is only one God for everyone, and there's no room for various doctrines. Doctrines are either right or wrong, and in this case, the calendars were tampered with for a reason. The reason I suspect is that once the lie is injected into the lives of men, then evil freely flows without the correction of God's commandments. The theory I presented here appears to be correct; but we have to allow for error. If it is wrong, then it is wrong. But again, the evidence is so compelling that I felt it worthwhile to disclose it.

The Freedom of Virtue

     One of the things I've written about in The Grace of Repentance: Keeping God's Commandments is how to make sure that we can stay within the boundaries of God's commandments and the natural law.  Written law is not always consistent to those we find in nature and God's commandments, so then every law that we advocate should be that of natural law because that is what God created.  I want to explore the dynamics of temptation and sin; suggesting some ways how evil can be defeated by relying on and building up virtues by improving character.
     When things have gone bad in my life, there was always some underlying flaw in my own character that I think that brought on the trouble.  If I replay my life, I can see where things that I've said or done that were bad, always came back to cause me more trouble; even if it was years later.  I think in God's world, there is some kind of system of payback that he has instituted.  Mankind, in my opinion, have a latent knowledge of this, but like a lot of other people, if I ignore this knowledge and then do something wrong, I usually get what I deserve.  I have noticed this throughout my life and it has happened so many times, that I know that it cannot be a coincidence.  The more I behave myself the better my life becomes.  On the other hand, if I start messing up, the conditions of my life will go down the toilet.  So I believe there is a cause and effect to a person's actions, and I believe that we should be careful about how we behave so that our lives can be as pleasant and productive as possible.
     So, the moral standards we should always adhere to are God's commandments and the natural law.
     I believe that all men and women are tempted to break God's laws, but we are not hard-wired to fail at resisting these temptations.  The temptations to break the commandments comes from evil spiritual pressures.  And it can come in many forms, but usually it comes from an urge to do something evil.  If the urge is strong enough, we will break one of the natural laws and then make even more trouble for ourselves.  Committing sins I think is like someone who takes recreational drugs and by so doing, brings upon even more trouble upon himself: addition, ruined family and finances, drunkenness, and a whole host of other debaucheries just because he started out with the drugs.  I believe the same thing happens with any sin.  Once it is committed, the downside or payback comes quickly.  So my thinking is that it is easier to simply get rid of the urges to sin that is effective and can be used at any time the temptations arise.
     But before I describe how to defeat the urge, I think it is important to understand that when we are tempted, our minds seem to go into some kind of stupor.  I could never figure this out, but it is like having a bad dream and I can't seem to get out of it.  It is important to understand that the temptation to sin will possibly induce this stupor.  It is at this point I try to become more aware of my situation and I then try to make sure that I keep up my guard and get ready to defeat the urge.  I start to realize that my mind is starting to go on autopilot when I don't want it that way.  It is a strange sensation, but I know that trouble is starting to come my way if I don't  actively do something to defeat the temptation, and do it quickly.
     Recognizing that temptation is a spiritual event, we are now more positioned to defeat it.  Where does the temptation come from?  I believe it comes from the Evil One or satanic influences that are designed to destroy the life of men.  Men, women, and children are constantly tempted to do evil things and the influence of evil in our lives will destroy life as God intended.
     What I do to defeat a temptation is to repeat the specific commandment with which I am tempted to break.  I will tell you that the satanic influence will remove itself from you almost instantly.  This works for me and I've had other people write to me and say that this works for them as well.  I never had thought about it unless I had read it in an early Christian writing that was not in the bible.  Sin and evil can be defeated, and the best way to do it is to use the commandments.  If someone or something is tempting you with breaking a commandment, then just repeat this commandment and the urge goes away.  I wish I had learned this earlier, and I also have to remember to do this myself.  It is amazing how I can get distracted on this even though I'm writing about it.  I have to be on guard not to be overcome by the demonic stupor.
     This is how evil is defeated.  It is easy, clean, and very effective.  This will also help people control their thoughts and be less susceptible to mind control.  Evil induces a satanic stupor, and it is a key element of mind control.  Making sure that the mind only accepts truthful things is the only way I know of to preserve the spiritual health of the mind and of the spirit.
     The freedom of virtue--doing good things--is much more enjoyable than the bad fruit of evil.  The good things that we do are beneficial to our lives.  There's no impending payback for our evil deeds.  There is no unsettling of our spirits and souls because of the evil we may have done.  Life improves as we manage to keep the commandments.
     I've mentioned this before regarding anger, but it deserves to be mentioned again.  In the Shepherd of Hermas, in Mandate 5 there is a verse that explains what is happening to a person when they start to get angry.  When we get the flushed feeling, anger, and then possibly violence can take complete control over a man.  So, here, at this point is where we should guard ourselves and not let any angry feelings take control over us.  We should be suppressing our angry feelings and not expressing them.  When we express our anger, we are in danger of making the whole situation worse.  Rather than involve ourselves with anger, it is much better to "stand aloof" from it and let it pass.  Knowing that I am being influenced by a demon or an evil spirit, I repeat the commandments in my mind--especially "Thou shalt not kill" and the anger goes away as fast as it came.  It really is amazing just how simple and effective this solution works.  No need for using psychotic shrinks, who teach just the opposite.
This technique should work on everything that is considered by God as a sin.  What's nice about this is that it puts the man back in control of his own mind and soul, while leaving behind the common knowledge of errant information.
     In order to be successful in avoiding evil things, it is important to understand that it is essential to actively guard your mind to make sure you can function properly.  This needs to be done every day and try to never let in evil things that can twist your mind into thinking about evil things that can never do any man, woman, or child any good.  The freedom of virtue is evident in the peaceful existence of a life without evil and stupidity.
     Freedom of virtue resides in truth, therefore it makes sense to always test your knowledge and information with the facts.  Once you have the facts, you will be able to make more intelligent decisions.  Virtue is produced by doing good things within the truth.  Good decisions are based upon truthful and accurate knowledge.

You Were Not Born That Way

     I remember back in the 1980s, I found it very odd that there were so many news stories about homosexuals.  I remember at least 3 to 4 stories a day on every one of mainstream media.  I couldn't figure out what the point of it was and why this perverted activity was being promoted.  And there many people who believed that a homosexual was born that way without ever presenting any facts that support that conclusion.
Primary Purpose of Sex:

Natural law and God's commandments show that the primary purpose of sex was not to display it in public, but it was intended to be the way to make babies; the procreation of children.  While there is a pleasurable part of having sex, the real purpose of it is to have children and raise a family. Sex should be a vehicle for the expression of love between and man and a woman in the context of marriage.  This is the natural order for sexual activity.  For mankind, sex between married men and women fits into this natural law.  For every homosexual, there will be some children who will never be born and provide love for their parents.  Every homosexual has absolutely nothing to look forward to in that regard.

Are they really born that way?

I don't think it is possible for homosexuals to be born that way, and the reason is that since homosexuality is an abomination to God, he would never make a man or a woman to be bound in homosexuality--a condition which God himself deplores. Only an idiot would make the statement that they are born that way. That doesn't make any sense and it cannot be observed in nature. Just the idea of two people of the same gender doing sexual acts is unspeakable.  It doesn't fit into any rational thought that would produce any beauty or happiness.  This kind of deviant behavior is produced by exposure to the perversion; then chosen by the free will.  We know when something we do is wrong; we don't need a book, and everyone should know that this is wrong and it will destroy their lives in immeasurable ways.  All sin does that, but homosexuality and fornication will destroy the soul.  Sexual perversion is a choice, and it is a choice that will be very destructive to those who engage in it.

The purpose of "born that way."

Since the satanic culture is intended to destroy mankind, the idea of a homosexual being "born that way" is simply an attempt to put up a smokescreen to justify the perversion and then take way the guilt of those who engage in it.  Instead of recognizing it as a problem that needs to be fixed, panderers to homosexuals do so because they are deliberately promoting the homosexual agenda so that people will ruin their lives.  This is a tragedy.  Most people just want to be loved and to belong somewhere, and it isn't going to happen in a homosexual environment.  "Born that way" does not justify anything because it just doesn't happen that way.  There are no facts to support that conclusion, but nature itself has the facts that show that this activity is extremely offensive and it destroys the life of the man.  Evil has its purpose.  Evil wants to destroy everything beautiful, nice, and that produces any happiness.  Evil is the conscious attempt to destroy a man's life by twisting his sexual identity to the point of making him completely dysfunctional.

Promotes child abuse:

Because of the questioning of one's sexuality, it is evident that the homos are targeting children in the most unseemly way.  They are targeted in schools at a time in their lives where children depend upon well-grounded adults to give them a good example as to how they should act.  Homos and those who pander to them make all kinds of excuses to show the children that this activity is actually acceptable. Some of the children, unable to defend themselves will get molested by these creeps and ruin their lives.  The "state" promotes homosexuals because the "state" is also structurally evil and satanic.  If you notice how destructive the "states" have always been, it isn't a big jump in logic to target the small children and make perverts out of them.  This is who they are and all they will be.  The only intent is to destroy mankind and make the ones that are left completely miserable.  The intent here is to sexually confuse children and to destroy their judgment and their lives.


To tell a homosexual that he was "born that way" is a complete and a very destructive lie.  It just doesn't happen, but there is a purpose to this.  It is intended to twist the minds of all of those who hear it.  This is why lying is so destructive.  No man is hard-wired to offend God.  Every man chooses for himself whether he will do good things or bad things.  When a man chooses bad thing, a very miserable life with come forth.  If he chooses good things, then life gets better because he is staying within God's natural law.  That is the way things really work and it is an abomination to tell anyone that a homosexual was "born that way."  It is a complete lie and without any facts.

I Can Think!: Defeating Mental Slavery

     One of the hardest things for a person to be able to do is to really think for themselves.  The reason is that most of us have been brought up to abide in a group-think environment.  Little is taught about thinking for oneself, and a lot of effort has been put forth by the various medias to get people to think within a certain a "truth frame."  However, if one dares to think outside of that frame, then he is excoriated by the people who will suffer the most if people actually learned to think on their own.
These people reside mostly in politics and religion and are the least intelligent people in the world, in my opinion.  The reason is because they will readily accept a writing or someone's nonsense as truth and make it their own.  Then, having learned this bilge, they pass it on to other until the whole world's population has become so stupid, that they have lost their ability to think.
     Mental slavery comes from the continual inculcating of bad information into the mind.  Once the lie or error becomes a part of someone's "truth frame" a lot of bad things happen.  A mental slave is easy to control because will believe almost anything.  The reason is that when he believes lies, he makes bad decisions which will always put him in a position of weakness.  So that the powers that be completely twist the political and religious systems of the world to pivot around lies, error, and evil.  These three things will always contribute to the ruin of a man's life.  Stupid begets stupid.  Stupid, evil, and error cannot be fixed unless there's a complete change of heart.
     A mental slave believes stupid things: i.e. evolution, global warming, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, political and religious leaders.  The mental slave can only think in his "frame of nonsense."  We can see how even the slightest error or lie can have a devastating effect on the mind.  With today's media, the condition of almost complete intellectual chaos is present and without actively guarding the mind against it, can drive a person into a miserable life.
     One of my favorite writings comes from Philo who wrote: "For one kind of freedom gives fearlessness of body in respect of any dangers which can come upon it from men of still more powerful body; while the other produces peace to the mind, by putting a check upon the authority of the passions."   All men and women are tempted to commit evil; however, with a little effort evil can be overcome (at the very least) in the mind.  Because it is in the mind and in a man's soul the battle for evil or good takes place.  In order to destroy the lives of men, evil people put all kinds of rotten information out in order to make a man's mind go into chaos.  My idea of defeating this may be interesting for some because I am just like everyone else who has lived most of my life with inaccurate information.
     One of the most diabolical tools the evil one has is to have men and women base their beliefs on assumptions or presumptions.  The problem with assumptions or presumptions is that they are never disclosed.  So to base any truthful or intelligent thought to them is a complete waste of time.  A lot of this goes on in religion and politics, but the big problem is that these ideas are not based on the facts or the truth.  If I tell someone about the US Code, that assumes that the code is a part of a government, but in fact, it is a code of a corporation. These codes redefine words to mean something completely different and at the same time project a meaning that isn't intended.  A corporation code is more of a policy than a code or law.  Man's laws are so convoluted that they are not worth the effort to study as they are of no effect because of their capriciousness.  Only God's laws or commandments, in harmony with the natural law, are dependable for anything.  So, the mental slavery of mankind is brought about by using these corrupted laws written on dead paper.
     Of course, we have the same problem with religion.  I'm not sure how many thousands of religions there are, but everyone seems to conflict with one another.  It would be impossible, in my opinion, that God is that stupid to have all of these religions be in conflict with each other.  Whether one points to the Bible or the Koran, they point to religious writings which may or may not be true, so how would one know?  Of course, religious leaders will tell you that some of these writings are the word of God.  OK, then prove it.  They can't do it because the best they can do is to have an opinion.  Yet many millions of people throughout history have been murdered under the name of one kind of religion or another.  This too is a product of mental slavery.  The mental slaves will have no problem with killing another man, woman, or child in the name of God without proof the God's really wants him to do it.  Men believe too much in their leaders and they question little if anything.
     But if we can take the time to think an issue through, then we can take control over our own minds and use the power of reason to overcome the nonsense.  If someone says this or that, then ask them for the evidence to support their view.  What facts to they have to prove or support the truth of any matter?  You will be surprised that most of the time they'll have no facts and no evidence to support their views.  The main reason is that we have not learned to investigate an issue down to the core of the truth.  And by believing bogus information, we contribute to the destruction of our own minds.
     In religion, it is obvious to me that God wouldn't be that stupid to have all of these various groups of religions.  These religions are very instrumental  in destroying the reasonable mind.  While most of us believe in God the creator, the religions put forth their own version of truth, thereby, destroying the minds that listen to their nonsense.  While the Bible may contain a lot of truths, there are a lot of contradictory pieces of information that do not bear out the truth that the whole Bible is the complete and inerrant word of God.  Whatever truth it displays, seems to be always twisted by one religious group or another with the intention of destroying the minds of men.  People who do this truly intend to make life completely miserable for people who have to endure their disgusting and fallacious teachings.
     I try to figure out the truth and then just go with it.  I use God's commandments and the natural law as my guideposts.  I also use natural law to decide what are God's commandments and what aren't.  All writings to me are just secondary information.  The true law is God's laws and no one else's.  A writing may or may not be true, but the main thing is that I have learned to test the writings with the natural laws.  If the writing or any other form of media is in conflict with the natural law, then I just don't bother with it because I know that the bad information isn't going to do me any good.
     So after a few years of doing this, I believe that I am now in a better position to think more clearly.  If I need to know something, I take the time to research out all of the facts.  Once I have that information, and I am confident with its veracity, I then can use that information to my benefit. But what I found that was exhilarating with the fact that I could think in a more efficient way.  False information is much easier to identify for me now.  I have found that it almost churns my stomach when I turn on the television.  I do not allow that crap into my mind as I can see none of it ever did anything good for me.  Bad information is just that--bad and it is good for nothing.
     Another way I get this accomplished is that I look for warning signs.  Whenever I look at a video, book, or other writing, I look for satanic symbols.  If I see one, I just don't even bother to read, view, or listen to any of it.  I simply disregard the information and move on.  I do this with religious information. I have no more time in my life for stupid things.  But more importantly, I try not to let in my mind anything that is going to cause me any discomfort.  I look for things that are good and I want to stand aside from the evil.  This makes my life much easier.
     This is why I think it has been worth the effort to ween myself off of most of the media, as none of the information contained there had done me any good, even if I agree with a lot of it.  The problem is that I know I'm not getting the completely truthful story so I can really make an intelligent decision if I wanted to.  So I only work with information that I can reason for myself and get truthful answers.  Everything else, I just set it aside.  This way, I allow my mind to think in the way God intended.  Thinking about truthful things is the best way to go and it clears the mind.
     The benefits of clear thinking are that a person who thinks effectively is more difficult to control.  This is why the new age freaks who think they run everything want people to have no morals and encourage evil.  They control us through our own stupidity.  Our evil deeds weaken us to the point that almost everything we do goes wrong.  The best way I know of to counteract the evil is to learn how to think properly and reason things out so that we have good information upon which to work.

Patience: The Pilot of Peace

(Updated: 04/07/16)
     Patience in the time of being injured is simply a wonderful quality to possess. I'm sure that most of us have a difficult time with patience. But the meek shall inherit the earth.  Patience is a quality and a virtue worth acquiring.
     I happened to come across the writings of Tertullian (197-220 A.D.) who was a prolific writer and commentator on Christianity and its relationship to the “world.” His writings are quite logical and he wrote with the ability to be a few steps ahead of the subject matter. Whereas one group of Christian writers exhort us to be patient, writers such as Tertullian have the ability to give us more details in order to help their readers to  actually acquire patience. And I want to visit the issue of
meekness and patience as I think it is an essential quality for a man to have if he wants to be consistently in God's favor.
     Tertullian writes about a man: “Innocent he was, and intimate friendship with God, and the husbandman of paradise.  But when once he succumbed to impatience, he quite ceased to be
a sweet savor to God; he quite ceased to be able to endure things celestial. Thence forward, a creature given to earth, and ejected  from to the sight of God, he begins to be easily turned by impatience unto every use offensive to God.” By being impatient, man loses his ability to have spiritual discernment. He cannot understand spiritual things because through his lack of patience, hurries his decision-making process, and usually makes the wrong  choice—because he wants it now. He wants the immediate fulfillment of his desires, without taking the necessary time to think things through and obtaining the necessary information to make a wise choice.
     At 69 years old, this writer is just now learning how to be patient. And being thrown in prison is the only way I could have learned patience, as my life was going too fast to make the proper
choices and decisions.  Unfortunately, I was never taught how to be patient, nor could I learn it because I don't remember anyone who was a good example of patience. Everything had to be done now, and life seemed to be going from one case of instant gratification to another.
     For instance, I never saved enough money to purchase my own car. I always had car payments and, of course, committed the sin of disobeying God by partaking in usury. This could have
been avoided by either riding my bike or using public transportation for a few more months until I had enough to purchase the car. As a result, I spent more money for the car and greatly offended God as a result. I then got a home loan after I was married and spent more and offended God again. Piling sin upon sin, I used credit cards and other loans because I felt the need to have everything now. Buy now; pay later; offend God in the process. But the worst of all of this is that participating in
usury is considered unjust gain; being the same as theft. It doesn't matter if a man is on the receiving end or the giving side of the loan; any loan with interest is an offense against God and it is
     The driving force behind loans is to satisfy the satanic desire provoked through impatience. It was my impatience in attempting to satisfy my wants before I could afford them. If it wasn't for impatience, the banks, and the loan industry would collapse.
     Then we can see how adultery and fornication are the products of impatience of satisfying the lustful desire. Instead of waiting upon God to send us a proper spouse, through our impatience we instigate unlawful sexual activity. Tertullian said: “Evil is impatience of good.” “None immodest is not impatient of modesty; dishonest of honesty; impious of piety; unquiet of quietness. In order that each individual may become evil, he will be unable to persevere in being of evil; love is patience in the face of hatred, anger, and murder; the truth is patience in the face of lies, error, and deceit.
Godliness is patience in the face of idolatry.”  It is writings such as this last one from Tertullian, that has been very instructive to me and has given me the proper way of looking at the problem of patience. Godliness when practiced by the believer, is patience in the face of idolatry. And it takes an
extreme amount of patience to just exist in today's world of almost complete idolatry.
     When a man loses his patience, he has lost his self-control and his self-restraint and many types of chaos can manifest themselves. At this point in my life, I am just now learning the proper way of patience. I've seen dogs with more patience than me. The people who are blessed in their lives are the ones who have been patient.
     Without patience, there is no hope of being able to keep all of God's commandments all of the time. But with patience, we can achieve all things and please God all of the time. In regard to losing property or possession, Tertullian states: “We ought to endure without heart-sickness the cutting
down or taking away. 'Covetousness.' The spirit of the Lord has through the apostle pronounced ' a root of all evils: (Modern Bibles state: the love of money). “Let us not interpret that covetousness as consisting merely in the concupiscence of what is another's: for even what seems ours is another's; for nothing is ours since all things are God's, whose are we also ourselves. And so, if, when suffering from a loss, we feel impatient, grieving for what is lost from what is not our own, we shall be detected as bordering on covetousness: we seek what is another's when we ill brook losing what is another's. He who is greatly stirred with impatience of a loss, does, by giving things earthly the
precedence over things heavenly, sin directly against God; for the Spirit, which he has received from the Lord, he greatly shocks for the sake of a worldly matter.”
     This passage has been a wonderful help with the loss of my personal possessions. When I was put in prison, I had no way of keeping very much of my property and personal possessions collected over a lifetime. I would sometimes wake up in jail in a state of panic; thinking about all that I had lost. I lost my business, I lost my home, and I lost most of my personal effects. But I had a two-sided battle going on in my mind. Truly, I was “heartsick” over the losses, but on the other hand, there was a
part of me that didn't mind the losses. But since all things are God's; and understanding it in those terms, I am just now starting to put it all in perspective. We do not truly own anything because
God created it. How can a man own the land—something that God created? It is impossible to own the land. A man may have a certain amount of control over it, but he certainly will never in his wildest dreams own land. And it is the same with possessions. So why be covetous over things that are not ours? Nothing is even within our possession without the will of God. Being sorrowful, heart-sick, or despondent serves no constructive purpose, and all it accomplishes is the torment and the trembling of the soul. Tertullian continues: “Willingly, therefore, let us lose things earthly, and let us keep things heavenly. Perish the whole world, so that I may make patience my gain! In truth, I know not whether he who has not made up his mind to endure with constancy the loss of somewhat of his, either by theft, or else by force, or else even by carelessness, would himself readily or
heartily lay hand on his own property in the cause of alms giving:  For who that endures not at all to be cut by another, himself draws the sword on his own body? Patience in losses is an exercise in bestowing and communicating. Who fears not to lose, finds it not irksome to give.” And since God also has told us to care for the poor, it should always be a top priority in a Christian's life to take care of them. Because what we give isn't ours anyway, it is God's, but under our charge to distribute the wealth readily to the needy.
     Understanding the principle of patience has been tough, but a rewarding lesson to learn. Realizing that nothing is really mine makes it much easier to accept the loss of property. But
also, by understanding this, the desire or covetousness disappears along with the heart-sickness of the loss. Tertullian explains the pleasure of patience when he wrote: “I will add somewhat touching the pleasure of patience.  For every injury, whether inflicted by tongue or hand, when it is lighted upon patience, will be dismissed with the same fate as some weapon launched against and blunted on a rock of most steadfast hardness. For it will wholly fall then and there with bootless and fruitless labour; and sometimes will recoil and spend its rage on him who sent it out, with retorted impetus. No doubt the reason why anyone hurts you is that you may be pained: because the hurter's enjoyment consists in the pain of the hurt. When then , you have upset his enjoyment by not being pained, he must needs be pained by the loss of his enjoyment. Then you not only go unhurt away, which even alone is enough for you; but gratified, into the bargain, by your adversary's disappointment, and revenged by his pain. This is the utility and the pleasure of patience.”
     In prison, a so-called “Christian” man was clowning around and called me a “slut-faced whoremongerer.” I asked him if that was the way a “Christian” should speak. He ignored me
and kept on calling me that, very pleased with himself for coming up with the term. I had just finished studying the above passage of Tertullian. He kept calling me the name and I decided not to
respond at all. I simply remained silent and said nothing. I took his enjoyment away.  A few days later, the same man started to ask me stupid questions. I simply ignored him and did not respond to the ridiculous questions. I stared back at him and said nothing. He kept blabbering making himself look foolish. In this type of situation, silence and patience is the most powerful weapon.  So it worked just as Tertullian said that that demonstrated to me the utility of patience; the pleasure was mine by not saying or doing anything. Tertullian explained further: “Where the injury is less, there is no necessity for impatience; but where the injury is greater there more necessary is the remedy for the injury—patience.”
     If the world's political leaders exhibited more patience, then there would be fewer wars. But war is from Satan, Satan is from hell; war is hell, and it is the impatience of the political leaders that promulgate the conditions for war. And impatience plays upon all of the elements of war: anger, hatred, envy, jealously, strife, murder, revenge, and lust for power. The effects of war destroy what God created by returning evil for evil.
     But let's take another look at how Tertullian explains the virtues and effects of patience: “So amply sufficient a depository of patience is God. If it be a wrong which you deposit in his care,
he is an avenger; if a loss, he is a restorer; if pain, he is a healer; if death, he is a reviver. What honor is granted to patience, to have God as her debtor! And not without reason: for she keeps
all his decrees; she has to do with all his mandates. She fortifies faith; is the pilot of peace; assists charity; establishes humility; waits for repentance; sets her seal on confession; rules the flesh;
preserves the spirit; bridles the tongue; restrains the hand; tramples temptations under foot; drives away scandals; gives their crowning grace to martyrdoms; consoles the poor; teaches
the rich moderation; overstrains not the weak; exhausts not the strong; is the delight of the believer; invites the Gentile; commends the servant to his lord, and his lord to God; adorns the woman; makes the man approved; is loved in childhood, praised in youth, looked up to in age; is beauteous in every sex, in every time of life.”  Patience is the discipline and the rule of the true Christian.
It allows the man to effectively rule himself, getting the mastery over his flesh and over sin. It gives the man power to take control of his own conduct and gives him the spiritual strength to get it
accomplished according to the will of God. Therefore, the exercise of patience demonstrates just how
much we love God. And when we are tested, patience will carry the day. If there is something that is lost, God finds a way to restore us. Patience is the godly exercising of our true Christian
faith. Certainly, God is the supreme example of patience; if he is patient with us, then we should honor Him in the same fashion.
     We were created by God to exercise patience.It is through patience that a man is able to keep the
commandments of God—all of His commandments. The virtue of patience is the vehicle that is used to fortify and strengthen a man's faith. In these incredible passages, Tertullian says that patience is “the pilot of peace.” Patience is the controlling virtue that establishes a man upon the proper foundation of God's will.  With a godly amount of patience, almost anything can be
overcome as it is the patience that gives us the power to do good, and overcome evil. Again, patience is a godly quality; impatience is of the devil. Jesus Christ said: “In your patience you possess your
souls.” (Luke 21:19) And it would follow that through impatience a man loses control of his soul. By exercising the virtue of patience, a man empowers himself because he is being obedient to God.
     By looking back on my own life, it has been my impatience that has instigated my bad choices. When I think about it, almost everything I did was done impatiently. And by not being a true Christian, it was not possible for me to exercise patience in a godly manner.  By exercising the virtue of patience, a man can achieve a level of peace in his life, that most people have never experienced. So then when a man is pressured to engage in a sinful activity, if he practices the virtue of patience, he can over come the temptation to commit sin. If patience produces peace; impatience produces war. Patience exists within God's natural order; impatience exist outside of it. War is the direct result of impatience. Even the most powerful nation on earth cannot resist the temptation for war when another nation defies its wishes. The defiant nation also exercises impatience in its behavior towards the most powerful.  Both nations act upon the foundation of impatience and belligerence; which in turn produces hatred, anger, envy, and strife. The logical outcome of these evil workings is war, war,
and more war. War is of the devil, as it destroys men of whom God created. And those who destroy what God created will be destroyed in similar fashion themselves.
     War does not result in the practice of patience, but it is used to promote the destruction of men's souls. Because those who participate in military operations are just as guilty as the one's who order these murders. But it is the impatient who stir up the people into a state of absolute madness. The murder and killing go on—on both sides because each side did not have the moral underpinning of
patience to resolve their differences.
      The powers that be have no faith in God the Creator, nor do they possess a godly patience. In fact, they are the ones who instigate the fulminations on all sides—inciting impatience which results in war. War is just another example of a bad religious exercise because it is satanic. On one had there is God's law; on the other is the devil's world with no law. There is no body of law that is usable if it is of the devil. The law of war is from the devil, and Satan rejoices at the destruction of man because the devil hates God. War is a bad religion because all men in the military have sworn an oath of allegiance to someone or something; putting themselves under a curse. And as all of the history of man has shown that he is not capable of pleasing God by exercising patience because the whole system of government in the world is not founded upon God our Creator, but it is founded upon the
devil's foundation of impatience and war. I cannot find anything good about any government and war.
     I cannot find anything good about any government that is based upon man's idea of freedom—
which can never be—because the only way a man can have true liberty or freedom is the one who can practice patience, and keeps God's commandments.

     How does patience get it done? Tertullian makes an interesting comment: “The shepherd's patience seeks and finds the straying ewe: for impatience would easily despise one ewe; but patience undertakes the labour of the quest, and the patient burden—bearer carries home on his shoulders forsaken sinner. That prodigal son also the Father's patience receives, and clothes, and feeds, and makes excuses for, in the presence of the angry brother's impatience.”

     “Patience undertakes the labour of the quest....” is a stunning remark. She gets the job done; she shoulders the load; she bears the adversity; she assumes the most difficult task.  And if I can point to a major flaw in my faith; impatience would most certainly be at the top of my list. I am now
understanding how impatience was a major flaw in my character, and that anything I tried to do to please God, fell short because of my impatience. Because in the process of being impatient, I ended up with the opposite results of what I had intended. And by impatience, I did things out of ignorance, because I was too impatient to learn how to do them correctly. Patience rules the flesh; she bridles the tongue. This is how we overcome the flesh—we allow patience to “undertake labour of the quest.”  Patience is long suffering. So let's take a look at the Shepherd of Hermas in Mandate #5: “Be thou long suffering and understanding, he saith, and thou shalt have the mastery over all evil deeds, and shalt work all righteousness. For if thou are long suffering, the Holy Spirit that abideth in thee shall be pure, not being darkened by another evil spirit, but dwelling in a large room shall rejoice and be glad with the vessel in which he dwelleth, and shall serve God with much cheerfulness, having prosperity in himself.” Not only is patience “the pilot of peace” as Tertullian states, but also by having patience will give the man mastery over all evil deeds. This doesn't say some—it says all. Tempering the angry temper is included in the following passage: “But if any angry temper approach, forthwith the Holy Spirit, being delicate, is straitened, not having the place clear, and seeketh to retire from the place; for he is being choked by the evil spirit, and has no room to minister unto the Lord, as he desireth, being polluted by the angry temper. For the Lord dwelleth in long-suffering, but the devil in angry temper. Thus, that both spirits then should be dwelling together is inconvenient and evil for that man in whom they dwell.” A man's body is his vessel and the spirit of God—the Holy Spirit—cannot dwell with the evil spirit at the same time. One of them has to go. But by exercising patience, a man can overcome evil and an angry temper.
     If patience can overcome an angry temper, then we can see how it can also bridle the tongue. If the angry temper is under control, then the tongue can remain quiet. Patience becomes the controller; instead of anger and a loose tongue. If patience can overcome the angry temper and bridle the tongue, then it can also prevent wars and other forms of murder. If young people learned patience properly, then they would be less likely to engage in premarital sex—fornication--which destroys the mind and
separates them from God. If more people searched the scriptures, then they wouldn't be so easily led astray by false prophets and false teachers.  Patience does not expect anything now, but it waits until
its proper time. Patience fills the heart with joy; being a delight to the believer.
     Patience allows enough time to learn things and understand them in their proper order. Patience allows for thoughtful consideration of all the facts and evidence; before it draws a conclusion. Patience establishes the proper amount of all of her essential elements to firmly establish a man in God's will.  Patience dissolves tension between people and she allows the mind to think properly.
     Another example of patience being the “pilot of peace” is in the area of revenge, or in today's vernacular; payback. We are taught in the true scriptures never to repay evil with evil; but rather to be long suffering. We see in Revelation: “If any lead into captivity, he shall go into captivity: if any kill with a sword, he must be killed by a sword: here is the patience and the faith of
the Saints.” (Revelation 13:10)
     As patience is indeed the “pilot of peace” we can see how patience is the instrument that keeps us away from God's prerogative; applying vengeance. And by not repaying evil with evil, a man leaves the vengeance to God and God alone. It is God who will repay and take revenge; the proper amount to the proper person in His own time. God does not need our help giving out vengeance as man is not capable of applying this kind of judgment, in a manner or fashion that would be approved by God.
Vengeance is God's territory, and men need the patience to allow God to do His work unobstructed by impatient men.
     One way I have found that works for me in exercising patience is to keep my mouth shut when I am tempted run off at the mouth. My natural reaction sometimes is to start flapping my mouth and become part of the conversational fiasco. When I remember to shut up, the other people become very
uncomfortable and sometimes say: “Why don't you say something?” Many times I don't even respond to that because I am attempting to exercise patience. But I still have to think about it. I don't do it naturally yet; I'm getting better, but I have to actively concentrate to exercise any control over my mouth.
     One of my problems was that I tried to think and speak at the same time, often with very poor results. Now I am aware of the problem; primarily due to a lack of patience, I am able to more readily bridle the tongue. And by paying attention to my own patience, I can pay more attention to controlling myself in a way that I had never thought possible.  Patience is indispensable to the Christian because the whole belief system is completely contrary to the way the world works. In the world, it seems that almost everything is a fight; a fight against God and His natural order of life.
And it is a constant struggle economically to stay ahead financially in a system based on usury. Compound interest is Satan's tool of slavery; financial and personal. Usury feeds upon the ungodly impatience. Do it now; get it now! Good economic principles are thrown out the window. There is nothing good about  usury—interest upon interest—and it separates a man from
     While current economic trends lend themselves to usury, the fact is that people should begin to control their desires to have something now, and simply wait until they can afford the things
that they wish to buy. This would greatly diminish the power of the bankers, and put the financial system within the boundaries of God's law. If a debt is incurred, no interest can be charged. Impatience satisfies the immediate desire, but it leaves the man wanting—in a spiritual sense—in the aftermath of the fulfillment. Therefore, he cannot ever be completely happy as his body, mind, and spirit are in conflict between God's will and the devil's will. But with the exercising of patience, a man can
achieve that happiness by always abiding in the commandments of God.
     And it is impatience that breaks down relationships between and among people. We do things fast—just to get them done; when it may have been better to take more time in making a
decision to act.  The decision to marry a particular person, if made hastily, can come out with disastrous results. Many times we make important decisions based on its expediency, rather than the wisdom of it. This is due to impatience, and the usual outcome of such decisions is confusion and disorder. Making any decision based on confusion will not come out well because the foundation of such decisions is not based upon coherency.  Likewise, disorder means that the knowledge needed to make a wise choice is unorganized and it is not complete. For the most part, my whole life was run based upon impatient choices.  As patience is the pilot of peace, we can see how much it will benefit as to exercise patience to the fullest extent possible.
     Patience “undertakes the labor the quest”--it gets the job done. Patience will produce the ability for a man to avoid sinful behavior. Impatience produces the evil that instigated sin. Patience gives us the ability to love our neighbor; impatience produces thoughts of murdering our neighbor. Patience
overcomes the temptation to engage in sexual sin; impatience commits the act. Patience gives a man the ability to work and prosper in his labor; impatience causes him to become a thief. Patience is a virtue of the highest order and it pleases God; impatience serves the devil.

On Conspiracy Theories

     One of the things that I've noticed about conspiracy theories is that there is no end to it. 
Just when I think I've seen it all, something else comes up that's even worse.  For all of the conspiracy theories that I've seen, most of them are true but I suspect that the reality of them is much worse than what is disclosed.  Evil things have a way of lulling us all into a stupor and we seem to accept even the most outrageously evil conduct as normal.  We have the most evil, corrupted, psychotic, and mentally deranged miscreants controlling our "government."  If they ever tell the truth, it is only to further their evil agenda.

The purpose of evil..

     In order to understand what is going on, one needs to understand the purpose of evil.  And in many spiritual writings, it seems that the idea of evil is intended to offend God the creator and to destroy mankind.  In other words, anything that is deemed evil is specifically intended to to destroy mankind.  Government, being evil has no regard for the people who live under it.  It doesn't matter which government we are talking about; all of them are intended to be in complete conflict with the natural laws which the creator established with his wisdom.  Some people think our political leaders are stupid and inefficient and that they don't know what they are doing.  While that may be the case with some of them, the fact is that they know perfectly well what they are doing and the intent is do ruin the lives and to destroy as many people as possible.  The problems are put forth intentionally by the govtards and the religious people.  They both combine to make life as miserable as possible.  And there is a purpose in it.
     Evil weakens the mind, spirit, and body--even looking at it can be very unsettling.  Evil sets forth a spiritual and mental handicap that is difficult to overcome unless one is willing to override those things by intentionally avoiding them.  If a man wants a peaceful life it can be very difficult to avoid and separate from evil.  However, it can be done at the very least mentally, but physically, it is extremely difficult but possible without having to jump off the planet.
     Since it is my goal to improve my life rather than make it worse, I really do try to stay away from things that will get me in a bad position.  As a result of my efforts, I think I have been able to avoid and separate myself from things that will get me in trouble.
      When it comes to conspiracy theories, I know just enough to stay away from them and I have learned to separate my mind and spirit from such things.  Other people have written extensively about them, but I can't control what other people do, so I just have to focus on controlling what I do.  One of those things is that I don't pay anymore attention to these things because I can't do much about it.  But I can do something about how I live my own life.  That's the only thing that any of us can do.  Many of us teach good things but we get ignored, so we always have to maintain our own equanimity.  That's not always easy, but it can be done.

Warning signs:

     Rather than study conspiracy theories for the rest of my life, I look for the tell-tale signs of impending trouble.  I look for the following:
  • Satanic or occultic symbols:  Two-fingered finger, five pointed stars, masonic markings, swooshes, and a myriad of evil markings are available on the internet.  When I see any of these things on their advertising or media materials, I know that these people are not going to be ones that I am going to trust.  If they have these symbols, just know that you will get screwed at some point in the relationship.
  • Swearing Oaths: Anyone who believes in God the creator should never be swearing any oaths.  I've written three articles on this blog so you can find out the reasons why this is bad.  The main reason it is bad because no one has the ability to accurately predict the future 100% of the time, nor do they always know the truth of a matter.  Wherever you see the oath, you should know that there is nothing but trouble from that group or organization.
  • Religious Organizations: These are some of the worse groups you can participate in because they make claims that they cannot prove.  They don't operate under God's commandments or natural law, and they simply make up their doctrines as they go along.  Rather than listening to them, I would avoid these groups.  No matter what the religion may be, the fact is they don't even believe in their own writings because most of their leaders are liars.  Frankly, I don't think that God the creator is that stupid to come up with these religions.
     Just these three things can go a long way in helping a man or woman to avoid a lot of trouble.  Governments and religions are mostly based upon oaths, so you know that these are the kind of people you should avoid.  And this works well for me.  I don't need to clutter up my mind with needless turmoil by putting in senseless thoughts that go nowhere.  And evil is senseless.

Like the sinews of a dead man.....

     Evil has no strength, nor does it have any power.  One of my favorite passages from the Shepherd of Hermas says the following:  "Believe, therefore, on God, ye who by reason of your sins have despaired of your life, and are adding to your sins, and weighing down your life; for if ye turn unto the Lord with your whole heart, and work righteousness the remaining days of your life, and serve Him rightly according to His will, He will give healing to your former sins, and ye shall have power to master the works of the devil. But of the threatening of the devil fear not at all; for he is unstrung, like the sinews of a dead man."  Evil people are nothing, they live for nothing, and there is no good in them because they refuse to abide in the natural order.  Notice how the devil is described as unstrung.  The activities that we follow in studying conspiracies are as the "sinews of a dead man."  There is nothing for us to desire or want with people like this.  We can't control their lives as they are free to chose the evil.  The results of evil are self-evident; chaos and destruction.

Scuba diving the cesspool
      So my thinking here is that we need to know enough to stay away from it, but we don't need to scuba dive in the cesspool. We don't have to know every piece of crap that the new world order psychos put forth.  I believe that separation and avoidance are the best ways of getting rid of these kind of people.  There really isn't any point in even speaking with them because they have no intention of learning any common sense or any virtue.  Their lives are wasted on destroying other people and they take their joy in ruining the lives of other because that's just who they are and they won't change.  Some may, but most will not repent.  So, it is important to separate out and avoid them as much as possible.  I believe that the reality of the conspiracies are much worse than what we see described on various websites and blogs.  But you can control what goes into your own mind and your own behavior.  This is where the real battle lies.  The temptation of evil is there, but we still chose our own course.  Choosing good over evil will always get better results.

The Value of Government

     I want to take a look at the economic value of what we know of government, and see if it is a good deal.  Economically speaking, is it worth the amount of money that we all put into it?  Does it give use value for the dollar spent?
     We'll be looking at this question from a perspective of a working family, mostly from the middle class, but also, from the perspective of someone who is considered rich in economic standards.  I won't be talking about the moral character of government because I've done that elsewhere on this blog.  I want to focus this as much as I can upon economic common sense if there is any left.
     Many years ago, I figured out that after taxes, anyone who made over $50,000.00 would have a total tax liability of around 63%.  These included:
  • Income tax: 28-33%
  • Social Security tax: 6.5 to 15.3%
  • State Income tax: 9%
  • Unemployment insurance (tax)just under 1% per employee
  • Property tax: Variable Depending on the value of a home.  8%(I'm going to use)
  • Excise tax..especially on gasoline: Combined state and federal .601per gallon 15gals per week   so on an income of 50 grand the tax just on gasoline runs about .0093756 or almost 1% just on gasoline alone.
  •  Sales tax:  Now about 8.75% in California
     If I use the highest numbers possible, I come out with about 76% of earnings going to taxes.  Obviously, depending upon income and expenditures, this figure can fluctuate.  Actually, my figure of 63% may be conservative.  Either way, these are just ballpark figures.  
     But the question is this:
  •  Is the government system that we have in place today worth the 63% of income?
  •  Is the Democratic and Republican parties worth 63% of your income? 
  •  Is the United States Congress and Senate worth 63% of your income?
  •  Is the US military worth 63% of your income, especially if you've had your limbs blown off in a war in some God forsaken land?
  • Is being sprayed with chemicals (chemtrails) worth 63% of your income?
  • Is being felt up and being sexually molested by the TSA worth the 63% of your income.
  • Was losing our manufacturing and agricultural base with trade agreements like NAFTA and TTP worth 63% of your income?
  • Is the high unemployment rate worth 63% of your income?
  • Is the judicial system of abject slavery worth 63% of your income.
  • Was "Fast and Furious" worth 63% of your income?
  • Is the pathetic public school system worth 63% of your income?
  • Was Waco and Ruby Ridge worth 63% of your income?
  • Was Bill Clinton and Monica worth 63% of your income?
  • Were all of the calculated wars worth 63% of your income?
  • Was George W. Bush worth 63% of your income?
  • Is the police brutality in the streets worth 63% of your income?
  • Is the communist economic system worth 63% of your income?
  • Are any of the candidates running for President worth 63% of your income?
     The results cannot be disputed.  I'm sitting here trying to find something good to say about our government but I can't.  Everything it touches turns into excrement.  Is it worth the money?  Can we do better?  I'm sure it is possible but it is a matter of choice.  No matter what the government does, you have to ask yourself: Is this worth 63% of my income?

Chem Trail Friday

     I woke up in a very good mood this morning because I had a decent nights sleep.  I
walked outside and I saw what I have usually seen since 1997; chem trails.  If there was ever a reason to get rid of government, I think this type of thing is a perfect reason why.  I don't know who the fruit-loop is who though this up, but it had to be the most evil person on the planet or a combination thereof.
     This is a perfect example of govtards at their worst.  They are spraying a variety of chemicals and they are in effect medicating the whole country whether they like it or not.  This is the purpose of a good govtard.  Just do the most stupid and insane thing you can and then deny it even exists.
     I'm not going to get into all the details of  chem trails because others have done that, but what amazes me is how many people don't seem to care or understand and that their health may be in jeopardy.
     Recently, I pointed to the sky to a local store owner and he said it is the first time he has ever seen them.  But what was even more shocking is that many people don't even question it.  With this kind of system, what would stop them from spraying something lethal and kill millions of people?  Who is controlling the security for this practice?  Nothing really, but when this is brought up to the local govtards, they don't seem to be a bit concerned.  They never answer any questions about the practice or they come up with the ridiculous reason such as they are contrails.
     The same thing goes with fluoride in the water.  There are a lot of health risks to ingesting fluoride but most people don't question this deadly practice.  Now that there is going to be gubbermint health care, you can see just how disgusting the whole situation can become.
     For this reason alone people should be rethinking the value of government.  If the government is going to be this intrusive, maybe it is time to flush the whole thing down the toilet, start over, and simply allow people to live their own lives in peace.  Government as we know it has destroyed just about everything in its path, and God only knows how pleasant live would be without it.
     Am I advocating anarchy?  That term seems to be associated with groups of people I don't agree with entirely. I don't believe in violent revolutions.  To make any meaningful changes, people in general need to have a change of heart about a lot of things.   But people do better when they are free to choose who they want to associate with and participate in projects that they want to support.  As long as people respect other people and let them live in peace, I think that would be the better way to go.  Government as we know it today is a proven failure and there's really no sense in it.  If it is based upon an evil foundation, then what good is it?
     I can't say much about the intent of the chem trails, but given the 20/20 vision of history, we can see that any government that is so arrogant to medicate the population, has nothing good in its intention.   This kind of thing has been going on for decades.  But I have to ask the question: Does anyone really care?  I know some do, but from what I've seen, most people are in denial.
     What would happen if one morning we all walk outside and get sprayed with something lethal?  Then it will be too late.  I'd tell you to write your congressman but that would be like pissing up a rope.
     My take on this is that government as we have known it all of our lives has never been useful.  It's not a necessary evil; evil is not necessary.  If everyone abided in the natural "law" then life would certainly be more pleasant and we wouldn't have to deal with the govtards.  Chem trails are the modern day "black helicopters" and they are as dangerous to your health as one can imagine.  Who makes the decisions about what chemical gets sprayed?  For what purpose?
     As for the pilots who fly these routes, what kind of person are you who would spray your own family and friends?  This I cannot understand.
