Humanitarian Emergency on U.S. soil or planned mass immigration policy

I feel like we are in the early stages of a humanitarian crisis in the United States on our southern border. Yet, it isn’t the early stages. Apparently it has been going on for a few months now, and the mainstream media (CNN, Foxnews) have left it on the back burner. If the story exists on their website, it is hidden out of view of the front page.  I admit that I can’t watch the news during the day because I work. So I don’t know if they are covering this on the TV side of the network. But it definitely isn’t  getting any attention on their internet platforms.  So, I am going to post a link on the blog here so that everyone can do some reading on what is going on.

Crowded U.S. Cells Holding Central American Children

As a Christian I am concerned for the well-being of these kids. I am heart-broken and torn. I am sad that their own country is so bad that they were sent on such a journey, many of them alone, in order to come to the United States. On that point I am glad that they made it here alive and hopefully unhurt.

But, I do wonder why they are suddenly all coming here. Central America isn’t any worse now than 10 years ago. The reason must be that the people in charge of upholding the laws in this country are not doing their job. And that is the executive branch of our government.

Why would they want to stop this? If the Democrats in charge can make all these immigrants believe that Democrats are their savior, then they will have votes for years to come once they grant them amnesty and citizenship. Yes, that will happen. It is inevitable. See, now that it is happening the Republican leadership can’t be outdone as the saviors. So, they have to stall long enough to try to win the majority in the Senate and then pass the legislation before the Democrats can.

So here we are. Now, I don’t have anything against immigration personally. Immigrants built this nation. The problem is that we can’t have large new population groups coming in by the thousands who believe that socialism is the correct form of governance. If this becomes a humanitarian crisis, then all these children are going to be raised by the government dollar and by nature will expect that assistance for years to come. If you need proof of this just look at the number of life long assistance U.S. citizens that already live in this country.

Maybe this is why many Bible scholars say that they can’t definitively find mention of a super power from the west in end times prophecies.

Was this planned years ago?

Biden giving the go ahead?

New backyard friends

We had a couple of visitors in the backyard yesterday evening. The hens were a little curious but not too worried. I sat and watched these young rabbits eat a few minutes. They were eating whole clovers, grass, and a few weeds growing within my patio area. Which brought on an idea. I wonder how many rabbits I would need to keep my lawn mowed.

The burden of proof

Sometimes people will ask how I know the Bible is truly inspired by God. But really I believe it would be harder to prove that it wasn’t inspired by God.  

http://bible.com/111/2TI3.1   2 Timothy 3: But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Introduction – Starting a blog

When I thought about doing this blog thing it didn’t seem like it would be too hard. But, now that I am sitting here ready to post my first submission, it feels like the biggest decision I’ve had to make in a while. Probably since it is the first post and I’m nervous about who is going to laugh at me for thinking that anyone would care about a blog from an average guy like me. So, I’ll just do a short introduction. I’m an average guy. I live in the United States. A red-blooded American, born and raised in the South. I have a wife and two kids, a small flock of backyard chickens, and a love of college football. But, I am also a follower and believer in Jesus. This blog will be a small view into my thoughts and feelings about what is going on in life, in my country,  my state, the world, and the spiritual battles that take place every day for everyman.
