  I have been thinking of something to write concerning the politically charged time we find our selves living in right now.

It is open season from the liberal left on conservatism, conservatives and the “religious right.!” 

We {society} are entering into the times that Jesus of Nazareth spoke of; Matthew 10:22

“You will be hated by everyone because of me, . .” The Gods honest truth is those who buy into the lib spiel don’t even realize they are the ones spoughing/spewing hate!

Paul, one of the writers of the New Testament Epistles put it this way:

Ephesians 6:12

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, . .”

For sure we are struggling against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil.

The violence of the past Jan. 6th. Wasn’t the answer. The darkness can reside in a lot of different hearts.


I found this old post I feel it still applies. 


Idolatry

Posted by R.C. "Bob" Lewis on August 17, 2019 at 9:23am

Exo 20:4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

5. You shall not bow down to them or worship them;


I am afraid that society has never considered that denying "God" is a form of "hate."

I doubt the "shooters" had ever heard that from any preacher or from any Christian friends or neighbors.

(We will get to "thou shalt not" later)

IDOLATRY can take many forms.

Something as simple as skipping church for NFL on Sunday (not to mention the "Sabbath to keep it Holy")


Pastor Timothy Keller wrote: "the idols that drive us are complex, multi layered and largely hidden from us." (Counterfeit gods)


Ones Ideology can become a driving force in every day life. It seems this violence is mostly driven by their ideology!

Hate blinded their eyes, hidden in their ideology is IDOLATRY!


We have let down society with a quiet Gospel, because some shouted "judgmental"! We have tempered our witness to God loves you just the way you are, instead of proclaiming "Therefore hear the word of the Lord" Isaiah 28:14

POW/MIA

Posted on September 16, 2019 at 9:07 PM Comments comments (687)
 Thinking of POW/MIA Week and POW/MIA Day recognition brought to my mind some of my past veterans activities as chaplain to military veterans.

I recall a veterans recognition activity I attend in Colorado Springs CO. where we lived in the later 1990's. I would have attended normally but upon arrival I was recognized as the chaplain serving at the state level for the Disabled American Veterans and was invited to set in the front row. 
 As I recall I was seated next to an ordinary gentleman in jeans and open collar shirt, he politely introduced himself as “Newt” and ask about me, my chaplains vest and the DAV cap. He seemed appreciative of my activities for veterans.
The program began with a prayer, post the colors, flag salute & recognition of dignitary's then introduction of speakers. When they introduced the man that designed the MIA/POW Flag Mr. Newton Foust "Newt" Heisley ! The nice gentleman next to me stood and walked to the podium, he spoke mildly of the inspiration of the images on the flag and a meeting he had with a wife of a MIA/POW and her struggles with the US Military (Air Force) and her husbands status, 1st she was told he was Missing in Action, then “oh, he is being held prisoner” then the DOD clerk that said “who?” She said it appeared the military had forgotten their pilot, “her husband” was missing!
That lead to the words on the flag “YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN”
He spoke humbly pointing to the greater efforts of others that were behind the images that were almost just scribbled on a plain piece of paper that he handed to the spokes person for the National League of Families and became the National League of Families POW/MIA flag.


Gee, I was just setting next to Him!
