New Rule: Keep it Clean


KEEP IT CLEAN


This being a Christian site, I just didn't think this rule would be necessary.  Apparently I was wrong.  

The definitions employed in this rule are...


Morally pure; virtuous,
Having no marks of discredit or offense,
Fit for all readers, listeners, or audiences; not ribald or obscene.

Posts and comments that violate this rule will be deleted and the poster warned.  If the poster continues, he/she will...

If Americans Knew

If you were to google "Israel Kills Christians," what do you think you will find? An empty page? Unfortunatley no.

THE EXTINCTION OF THE IMPORTANCE OF TRUTH

Truth, itself, is at least an endangered species.  But, the importance of truth is extinct.  Don't get me wrong, there are people, like myself, that believe truth is important.  But, just because people like me believe truth is important. doesn't mean that it is.  For truth to be important, important people must believe so.  Whether in politics or religion, truth is not important among the important.  Important people include the President, the Pope, members of Congress, religious leaders and the messengers of those.  Among those people, the...

CHRISTIAN ECONOMICS

There are several economic systems in this world.  Capitalism, communism, socialism, just to name a few.  There are those that believe that capitalism is established by the Constitution.  But, nowhere does the Constitution state that the economic system of the United States will be capitalism.  And there are those that call themselves "Christian," who believe that capitalism is given by God.  It isn't.  Nowhere in God's Word is it written that we should accumulate wealth for ourselves at the expense of others.  No economic system where there are losers comes...

I found this on the internet.  The link is at the end.

Should a Christian Celebrate Christmas?


There is no Biblical warrant, precedent, nor precept for remembrance of the day of Christ's birth as a day of special religious celebration. This is not to say that we shouldn't remember Christ's birth and its significance, but for religious commemorations or celebrations, we must have Biblical command or precedent! The fact of the matter is this...

WHAT IS TRUTH



What is truth? What is truth based on? Can truth be based on lies?

It seems to me that many who call themselves "Christian" often accept as truth what is in reality lies. For example, the idea that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ is a complete lie, yet so called "Christians" accept it as truth. Why is that? Don't they care about the truth? Don't they care about what is right?

In...

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION


I just read an article that I must share. This is the reason, or at least one of them, Republicans lost the last Presidential election.

Governor Tom Corbett has engineered what can only be called a financial invasion of the city of Harrisburg.  The Governor has no Constitutional authority to takeover the finances of any local government in Pennsylvania.  Yet, Gov. Corbett has done just that.  

This all has to do with an Act of the General Assembly in the late 80s, called, "The Financially Distressed Municipality Act," also known as "Act 47," or "Chapter 115."  You can see it at this link: http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/012/chapter115/chap115toc.html

BACK TO THE CONSTITUTION

If the people of Pennsylvania cared about getting back to the Constitution, that is the US Constitution and the Pennsylvania Constitution, I should win the Republican nomination for Governor in a landslide, and the General election in November in a landslide. All the problems we are facing in the Nation, and in this Commonwealth can all be solved if we went back to the Constitution.

But, in my engagements with people, in person and on line, I am...

On my 7th birthday, my parents gave me a Bible. The best thing they ever did for me. I loved the book ever since. I've studied quite a lot since then, mostly on my own.

I have attended Bible classes once in a while. When I was small, I was taken to the Church of the Brethren. I was not comfortable. When I could make my own decisions, I stopped "going to church."

In 1965, my parents separated, and I went to live with father's sister and her family. She is one of the meanest women I have ever known. I was so happy when my parents got back together and I...

There was another school shooting, this time in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. As often happened in the past, people are asking why. One asked, what will it take. My response to him was, "See II Chronicles 7.14." For those who do not know, that verse states, "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." -

PURE CHRISTIANITY

I recently wrote on my Facebook timeline that I think I am becoming a Puritan. I don't mean that in sense that I am becoming like the Puritan's of the past, that once settled in Massachusetts. I am writing about becoming a pure Christian based purely on the Bible and only the Bible. It is my goal to have faith that is based solely on Scripture and nothing else. Isn't that what we should be if we call ourselves "Christian"?

Back in December 2002, I wrote an article called, "The End of the Year Thing," that I published in a paper I called, "The Paper Pulpit." I reproduce it here, with very few changes. ----------------------------------------------------

The soft pretzel was brought to the U.S. by the Moravians in the 1700s. Julius Sturgis invented the hard pretzel in 1861 and opened America's first pretzel bakery. The Sturgis Pretzel House remains today at 219 E. Main St. in Lititz, Pennsylvania. When visiting this part of Pennsylvania, be sure to stop by and tell them you heard about them on Topical Chirp. To learn more about Stugis Pretzels, go to their website at: http://www.sturgispretzel.com/

I just wrote a song called, "As Christ Loved The Church." There are many things in life that inspired me, but hearing about the trials of Mindy McCready, is the catalyst. Sorry, I don't write sheet music, and the tune is in my head. This is a song with a good message. Anyone out there that would help me record it? Here's the lyrics:

AS CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH

C. If men loved women as Christ loved the church,
Women would make men happy.
If men loved women as Christ loved the church,

I'm a Constitutional Independent, and I sure wouldn't mind sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office. If I were to run for President, this would be my platform.

SOLVING THIS COUNTRY'S PROBLEMS WITH SIMPLE SOLUTIONS

We simply must get the Federal Government back within Constitutional boundaries. However, I realize, while the solution is simple, implementation of the solution may not be.

1. Eliminate unnecessary and unconstitutional Federal agencies and departments. One that is unnecessary is the Department of Education. The nation's children...

WHERE I AM COMING FROM AND HOW I CAME UP WITH THIS ECONOMIC PLAN

I am a people person. I am not a numbers person. I am not an economist. When people are hurting, I hurt for them. And the American people are hurting in an economic way. My economic plan is in response to the hurt of the American people. Many of the American people have lost their living wage jobs, to be replaced with low income jobs or no job at all. I set out to solve the jobs problem. To eliminate all things at...

My understanding of Entitlements you could say is the difference between "now and then."

Does anyone remember what this nation was like before entitlements? Parents took care of their children, and when the parents got old, the children took care of their parents. Parents were not shoved into a home and forgotten about, paid for by some entitlement. In times of trouble, communities helped one another, and churches helped people as well.

Even during the "great depression," THERE WAS NOT ONE ENTITLEMENT THAT HELPED ANYONE. I wanted to make that point plain....

Psalm 33

The Sovereignty of the LORD in Creation and History

1 Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous!
        For praise from the upright is beautiful.
2 Praise the LORD with the harp;
        Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing to Him a new song;
        Play skillfully with a shout of joy.
       
4 For the word of the LORD is right,
        And all His work is done in truth.
