On April 6th, 2017, the U.S. bombed a Syrian target; a military airfield, in retaliation for Syria’s inhumane use of chemical weapons against its own civilians.
Knowing that Syria did that earlier in the week, I would think that the U.S. responded accordingly. So why in the world are people against it? Well, we know why the left is against it. But why are some of Trump supporters against it?
I know what you’re going to say. Trump had tweeted multiple times that it would be a bad idea to attack Syria. That it would make more sense to just focus on trying to fix “broken U.S.”. And NPR made sure that we all got to read all of those tweets. Here’s the thing, though: those tweets were sent in late 2013. It’s been over 3 years since then and the conflict in Syria seems no closer to a climax than it did back then.
I remember seeing a FB post on one of the pro-Trump pages I follow of a man saying “Shame on you Trump…” That he’s “done what every other USA president would’ve done.” I ask, is that a bad thing? In the general scheme of things, we don’t want Trump to be like other presidents. We don’t want him to break campaign promises and be soft on the opposition. But in other instances, we want him to be the very thing we elected him to be: a U.S. president. A commander-in-chief.
I understand that the priority is to Make America Great Again. But we must also understand that the rest of the world doesn’t just stop what it’s doing so that we can have time to recover. ISIS will continue to attack innocent people. Syria will continue to be at war with itself. They’re not gonna give us time to recover and catch our breath. They’ll continue to do these things, and we must act accordingly when attacks on innocent lives occur.
I’m sure you know that eventually, Trump will send troops back to the Middle East to take out ISIS posts and strongholds. We’ll be going back to war with them. This strike will undoubtedly not be the last. Particularly if Syria continues to use chemical weapons against its own citizens in an attempt to flush out rebels.
Trump tweeted in 2013 that: “… the ‘rebels’ are just as bad as the current regime.” He was right. The rebels are indeed just as bad as the current regime. No matter who wins the war, Syria as a whole will come out the loser. There’s no good side in this war. It’s evil vs. evil. But as they are evil, they will do evil things. The Syrian government using chemical weapons against its own citizens in the hopes of getting at least some rebels or even some rebel sympathizers counts as doing an evil deed. We recognize such evil and act against such evil by retaliating against the aggressors.
The left has always whined about the U.S. being the “world police”, saying that we shouldn’t be. Well, when the rest of the world is run by evil, there’s not much we can do. As man is evil by nature, so will be the governments he runs. And since the only non-evil and strong government in the world is the U.S., it’s up to us to put evil in its place. In general, we won’t get involved in other country’s affairs. I don’t think we’ll be siding with the Syrian government or the rebels at any point. But when one side or the other involves the civilians and causes casualties, particularly from such an inhumane measure as chemical weapons, then we’ll do something about it, such as bombing a Syrian military airfield.
Let’s look at Romans 13:4 “For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.” Let’s look particularly at the last two sentences. “If you do wrong, be afraid… an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.” Would you not say that it befits the president and his actions? The Syrian government did something wrong. And God’s wrath was carried out on them. They had that coming and had quite literally a hell of a lot more coming. So it makes no sense to be angry at what the president did, since it’s what any other president would’ve done and should’ve done.
“For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.”

For the longest time, the Democrat party was the one in control. They owned the White House and could get anything they wanted in Congress with little opposition from the Republicans. They own the media and let people know what they want people to know and work to eliminate any piece of news that contradicts or opposes their narrative. And with that, they’ve come to believe that most people agree with them and most people want them.
If people truly wanted them, they would’ve won every election since 2008 with landslide after landslide. Republicans would never have had a prayer to own Congress in 2010 and 2014 and would never have been successful in 2016. And still, with all the loss after loss the Democrats experience, they still believe that the majority of Americans want them, trust them and want to vote for them.
That’s what explains them whining so much about the 2016 election results. They can’t accept the fact that America voted to get Democrats out of the White House and to keep Republicans in power in Congress. They can’t accept that fact because it doesn’t make sense in their minds. If the majority of people love and want you, why would they go to someone else? They fail to understand that the people that tell Democrats like Hillary that they’re wanted are the only people that actually do. Outside of the media, most people still wanted Trump, or even Obama, over Hillary.
They can’t get over the fact that they were UTTERLY REJECTED and so created a flimsy excuse with absolutely no evidence to make themselves feel better. They didn’t believe they were rejected. Still don’t. They refuse to accept the fact that they can no longer bs their way to Washington. The American people have awoken to the smell of their bs and got tired of it. The media believed America and the world was living under utopia or near utopia thanks to their leader Barack Obama. They refused to see the destruction Obama was causing, or simply didn’t care (or were rooting for it, you choose) to the country and forgot that Americans can vote them out of office.
They thought they had the American public in the palm of their hands, to do with as they pleased. Like sheep leading them to the slaughterhouse that is the ballot boxes when voting Democrat. They didn’t think the American people were smart enough to realize they were being deceived. They found out the hard way that Americans aren’t as stupid as they think they are.
God has caused the majority of the American public to awaken to the destruction that was occurring around them. They saw that what Obama was doing wasn’t working. They found out that the mainstream media was lying to them about how good things were and how happy they were. God opened their eyes so that they may see what path they were going down on should they continue to vote for evil.
Clearly, God still has plans for America and doesn’t want His nation, the nation of Israel, to be alone in the world once again. Much like He has a plan for each of us individually, He has a plan for this entire country. What that plan is, we’ve yet to see.. But I know that it is God whom we must thank for veering us off the course of evil we were going on with Democrats. Now, we must pray and continue to pray that God will help this newly elected president to do right by Him. And that He won’t allow evil back in the White House any time soon.
He’s in control and He gets to decide who wins elections and who influences the world.

While listening to the Rush Limbaugh program, I heard a caller having doubts about Trump, saying that he’s a “puppet” and that he’s become a part of the “swamp”. Let me tell you, I both laughed and got annoyed by the caller’s comments.
Let’s look at this from a logical point of view. Today’s date is April 5th, 2017. Trump was inaugurated just over a month ago. How can anyone possibly expect him to be able to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time? Did any of you expect America to have been made great by now? That’s a pipe dream. It would be realistic if the Left wasn’t so adamant about making sure Trump failed.
Let’s not forget that Trump faces opposition that bends and breaks rules on a daily basis. Technically speaking, what the judge in Hawaii did in stopping the Muslim ban bill was not within his power. What he did was commit treason, but obviously not many people know this since the mainstream media doesn’t cover it as that. Speaking of the devil, they are part of the reason Trump doesn’t seem to be very successful. Back in the days of Obama, they would consider the president to be successful if he just lifted a pencil. They worshipped Obama, but he’s gone now. Now, they have to cover a man that they despise with all their beings, and as such, they will bitterly negate any success the president has and consider them failures.
Furthermore, back to the fact that Trump’s only been president for a little over a month, you have to consider the fact that he’s a true outsider. He has had to learn the way things work within the government, as he has had no previous experience in managing any form of government. As much as he wants to run the country as a business, he can only do so much and go so far with that concept. He’s having to learn to do new things in a vastly new way and he’s only been at it for just over a month.
The caller seemed to have been worried about the future of the presidency, but I’m not worried in the least. He’s doing something very few people know how to do: run an entire super power nation. He’s 70 years old. All his life he’s run businesses. He knows how to do that, but now he’s had to learn to run a country. I can’t imagine he ever had to deal with a lower level worker stopping him from venturing in business deals before. For the first time in his life, he’s experiencing the power of political opposition. And he’ll have to learn that in order to Make America Great Again, you have to look at what made America so sucky in the first place: the Democrat Party and its co-conspirators.
Rush often says that Trump isn’t an ideologue. And that might be true, but he’ll have to learn quickly that the Left isn’t a force that one can simply reason with.
I’m reminded of something that Trump tweeted once on making deals: That the best deals are the ones you walk away from and return to on better terms. The Left by design is not someone you can make a sensible deal with. They can’t stand the idea of losing anything, as evidenced by their constant whining about this latest election. You can’t deal with the Left logically, you have to defeat them at every turn.
He needs to recognize that the very people he wishes to make deals with are the very people that very nearly changed this nation into something unrecognizable from its foundation. The Left isn’t looking to make fair deals. They want to make deals that will benefit them entirely and leave little to nothing for Trump.
Trump is a brilliant man. He has been successful for much of his life. He’s come back from bankruptcy to become one of the wealthiest people on Earth. Not many people have had such success after declaring bankruptcy. I believe he’ll figure out what he needs to do to fulfill his main campaign promise. God gave him a good brain. And as long as Trump continues to pray and continues to look to God for answers, he will be a successful president.
God put Trump in the White House so that he may succeed there. And God will grant him such success as long as he continues to trust in Him and continues doing right by Him.
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

As it was mentioned in my previous article on California’s foundation on greed, there was a religious revival in the 70’s called the “Jesus Movement” that originated from said state.
In his book titled: “Is This The End?” Dr. David Jeremiah talks about the need for a Christian revival in the country. He lists the documented Christian revivals through this land’s history.
First, comes the first revival called The Great Awakening (1720s through 1740s). Just prior to this revival, the land was not too different from what it is today, with less and less people being converted and proclaiming their fellowship to Christ. This revival began with a simple gospel message of the need to be born again, which resonated with younger audiences and gave them hope. Johnathan Edwards, during this time, warned unconverted men and women of the danger that lies ahead of them should they fail to come to Christ. And John Wesley used his powerful voice, in the literal sense, to evangelize sinners for a mile without the use of amplification systems.
This revival is immensely important, as it's what led our founding fathers to fight for our freedoms.
The Second Great Awakening started sometime in the early 1800s. During this time, as people were preoccupied with the task of building a new nation, their spiritual well-beings began to deteriorate. During the time of the Great Awakening, 40 to 50 percent of the population attended church. By the 1790s, however, that number dropped down to 5 to 10 percent.
Christianity in America was under threat of extinction.
But in a college in Virginia, some students locked themselves in a room in fear of fellow classmates and began praying for revival. The college president investigated the situation and when the students were invited to his office, they prayed alongside the college president. In short time, half of the student body had come to the Lord.
The Third Great Awakening came during the 1850s and 1860s. After sometime, the passion and fire of the Second had died down. But thanks to one Jeremiah Lanphier, the Third Great Awakening began. He had announced a prayer meeting for September 23, 1857. In that first meeting, almost no one showed up. But as months went by, more and more people would show up. More than 50,000 people a day would show up to pray in New York, and this revival spread to other major cities around the area.
Then came a larger scale revival: The Global Revival (Dated sometime early 1900s) This one actually started in Wales, where a young man by the name of Evan Roberts began to preach a simple message: confess your sins to God, do your best to not continue sinning, obey the Holy Spirit promptly, and confess your faith in Christ openly. This simple message stirred incredible amounts of emotion from people in Wales, then England, then the rest of Europe, America and much of the known world.
Lastly was the aforementioned revival: The Jesus Movement (1970s). During this time, an entire generation of people became known as the “hippie” generation. This generation was known as the most screwed up generation in American history, with drug usage rising, and Indian transcendental meditation becoming the most popular form of spirituality there was. However in 1968, a Christian couple opened an evangelistic coffeehouse in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury (Hashbury, as nicknamed by the hippies) district. This one coffeehouse spawned a myriad of other Christian coffeehouses in the West Coast. And that led to ministries starting and people’s souls to be saved. This even caused thousands of hippies to become baptized.
We can see that there’s a pattern in our nation’s history, much like in our world’s history. The number of people who believe in Christ shifts over time. Sometimes that number goes up, and sometimes that number goes down. As I look at the state of the world today, I see that the trend is a massive down. What with the legalization of marijuana, gay marriage and unapologetic promotion of abortion, we see that the passion for the last revival is very clearly in the past.
But you have to ask yourself: are we due for another Christian revival? The answer to that can be a yes or a no. What do I mean by that? I mean that God is the one who decides who He saves. If He wants another religious revival to occur in the U.S. and the world, He will cause it to happen. He’s the Master of the Universe and gets to decide whom will enter His kingdom. That’s not to say that I don’t want another revival. I most certainly do. But if the Jesus Movement was ordained to be the last one, who are we to argue? Those of us who are saved will not suffer death… that is spiritual death. I’d be more than happy with another revival, but I have no right to complain if it doesn’t come. And those who are saved needn’t worry about the future, as it is all in the hands of the Lord.
This is why we are encouraged to evangelize people. We want to help bring as many people to Christ as we possibly can, regardless of the trend in faith in the country or the world.

When you think about the creation of this country, we often think about the first settlers and the Revolutionary War. But we often overlook the fact that people had to travel and expand in order to found what would now be the rest of the United States.
These people expanded south to push back against the Conquistadors of Spain and expanded West to beat out everyone else. The Louisiana territory belonged to France until 1803 when it was purchased by the established nation of the United States. As a result, America began to expand westward, while continuing to fight the Spaniards as well.
California was founded after being seceded to the U.S. from Mexico in 1848. And was made into a state in 1850 mostly because of the Gold Rush (1848-1855).
So as you can see, California’s very foundational origin is that of GREED.
California is perhaps the most liberal state in the entire country. I say perhaps because Hawaii is also incredibly liberal, but California often makes the most noise due to the fact that they have Hollywood. And since it’s arguably the most liberal state of all, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that its very origin is that of one of the seven deadly sins.
Now, California has had some good times in the eyes of the Lord. The latest documented religious revival in America actually originates from San Francisco, one of the most liberal cities in the country.
That’s where the “Jesus Movement” originated as a result to the hippie era that was flooding the country. (I just hope we’ll have something similar to respond to the millennial era.)
California was also Ronald Reagan’s state as governor, and thus helped him win both elections (1980 and 1984).
So it’s clear that California has done right in the eyes of God, but that is well in the past. Today’s California is very nearly the exact opposite of Yesterday’s California. San Francisco, the birthplace of the Jesus Movement, is largely known for being the city with the largest gay population in the country as of 2015, with 6.2% of the population of the San Francisco Metro area identifying as gay. Homosexuality and, generally speaking fornication, are sins. If you don't like this truth, don't tell me, take it to God...
And let’s not forget the damage Hollywood often does. What with having two Disney movies in the last two years having a gay character. (Finding Dory: had a lesbian couple. Beauty and the Beast: Gaston’s sidekick is gay - although there’s only one scene just before the credits roll that shows him dancing with another man).
That’s tame compared to what other filmmakers are doing, what with whole movies being promoted for including a gay black man plot. (Moonlight (2016)).
Let’s look at California as a whole. In 2012, 43.7% of registered voters were Democrats and 29.4% were Republicans. This means that nearly half of an entire state was Democrat in 2012. I’m also accounting for the fact that there are people that are not registered to vote either because of age or because they’re foreigners or because they just don’t want to register to vote.
Now, the thing is that, when looking at the 2016 electoral map, we see that California is flooded with red counties, but the most populated places (the coastal cities for the most part) are blue. These are the Los Angeles, San Francisco cities of the state. So even though it’s still largely red, since it’s run by Democrats and the largest places are run by Democrats in and out of office, this state wound up voting for Hillary.
2012 was no different. Most counties in California voted for Romney, but the state went to Obama. Same with 2004. Most of the state was painted red, but the state went to John Kerry. So due to the fact that most of the population lives in the blue areas of the state and that population is largely liberal, a seemingly red state often goes to the Democrat party.
With all of these Democrats, it’s no wonder the state is as insane as it is. It was founded on greed and has moved on to the other deadly sins, mainly lust and pride.
The state was founded on one of the icons of evil in the eyes of God, so it’s no surprise it is so far from God as it is.
And unless there’s a RADICAL change in its political system or there’s another religious revival, this state will continue to go further down into sin.

The Conference Board reported last week its consumer confidence index skyrocketed to 125.6 in March, up from 116.1 in February. Fake News economists were expecting a decline to 114.1.
Ever since the election last November, consumer and business confidence levels have continued to defy ‘experts’ by climbing higher and higher each month.
Well, that tells you a lot about these so called ‘experts’, and even more about people…
What can I say?
It’s FANTASTIC news!
Not just the fact that confidence levels are climbing – but the fact that I think for the first time in a long time we can safely say that…
…PEOPLE ARE IGNORING THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!
Think about it – the MSM is bombarding us day in and day out with news of how ‘racist’ and ‘chauvinist’ and ‘illegitimate’ and ‘incompetent’ Trump is. How the GOP is in ‘complete disarray’. How Trump will have to decide if he wants to ‘resign, be impeached or get assassinated’, as NTY’s David Brooks so clearly put it after Trump’s victory.
And yet, people’s confidence in the Trump Administration and in their future is increasing. How refreshing!
The MSM is becoming less and less relevant. So much so that they cannot even influence the direction of a metric, such as the confidence index, in spite of the massive amount of effort they’re putting in destroying Trump!
This is great news, my friend. People are waking up. The MSM cannot control people’s minds and thoughts any more. It’s a great sign.
So what do we, the ones who have ‘converted’ to conservatism, need to do?
We need to continue PREACHING.
We have a strong enemy before us – the deep state. They own
They’re POWERFUL. They’re LOADED with money. And they’re DETERMINED to hold on to their PRIVILEGES at OUR expense.
The rest of us, middle and lower class mortals of every race and religion, need to UNITE and DEFEAT the deep state. We have a President who’s literally putting HIS LIFE ON THE LINE every single day so that WE can have a better life.
Trump’s life was marvelous before he ran for president. Ours was terrible – and we didn’t have any hope of keeping our freedoms, our religions or our money. The president is a man who selflessly gave up his life of semi-privacy JUST to make sure he did something GOOD for us, the ‘deplorables’. Let’s make sure we thank him for that. Let’s make sure we thank GOD for the opportunity. But let’s also make sure we continue preaching and teaching.
The only reason I went from liberal 15 years ago to conservative today is people like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity – they’re the preachers who convinced me the real enemy is big government… the deep state.
And as we preach conservatism, let’s not forget who is in control: GOD. Let’s not forget that the only reason we even have a free country is because God has ordained it.
God is sovereign – He chose Trump and He allowed Obama. Nothing happens without God ordaining it.
If you’re a Christian you know that God is sovereign. You know that nothing is a surprise to God. This is a difficult concept to digest because some people wonder if God is Sovereign, how can there be evil? Is God not as merciful as the Bible says or is He not as sovereign that He can’t stop evil?
Before I answer the questions above, let me say this: God is SOVEREIGN and GOD IS JUST.
As far as God being merciful, let me explain this principle: if God were to impart justice on all of us, we’d all go to hell, because we’ve all sinned. And don’t tell me you’ve never sinned – you may not have stolen anything or killed anyone, but if you’ve ever lied or even had sinful THOUGHTS, then, my dear friend, YOU’VE SINNED.
But thanks to His GRACE, He has decided to show us mercy by saving some of us - those of us who BELIEVE in Jesus Christ. God is just always.
OK, so if God is merciful and bad things still do happen to us, believers, is he not fully sovereign, then?
The answer is: God is sovereign too.
He ALLOWS for bad things to happen for a PURPOSE. We may not know what that purpose is, but we are really in no position to challenge Him simply because God is God. You don’t challenge God. He gave you life and He can take it away if so He wishes. He gave his only begotten son, Jesus, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. God LOVES you – but you have to TRUST Him.
God allowed Obama, the Clintons, Pelosi and all the rest of the globalists to make our lives miserable… at least for a while. Why? I don’t know but I can tell you this: Obama and Pelosi brought me a lot closer to God than Trump did. In fact, Trump has had no impact on my relationship with God whatsoever. But thanks to Obama and Hillary I PRAYED MORE during election night 2016 than in any other election before.
Evil people or difficult situations tend to have that effect – in search for answers, you draw closer to God. So be grateful for those nasty people and situations in your life.
So preach, my friend. Preach about the goodness of conservatism. Preach about the opportunity – perhaps the last one – we have now with Trump in the White House. And preach about God – the Creator of the Universe! Pray that He gives us another chance to be more holy…
Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.
USA Today published an article earlier this week in which they state that hijab is a symbol of ‘resistance and feminism’. The newspaper quotes University of Maryland Student Sameeha Ahmad: ‘I do believe hijab supports feminism – the way you look at it from a religious perspective, it empowers you by strengthening your relationship with God. It’s a step you are taking to further yourself within your own religion’.
If only dear Sameeha knew that wearing a hijab doesn’t really take you to heaven… Only FAITH takes you to heaven.
You see, all religions – except the Christian religion – are WRONG when it comes to salvation. They require all sorts of actions or rules which, if you follow them ‘religiously’, will take you to heaven.
For example, jihadists kill ‘infidels’ because they’re taught that such criminal action is pleasing to their god, Allah. And maybe it is – except Allah is just not God. He may be Muslim’s god but Allah is not THE God. God doesn't want you to kill people...'Thou Shalt Not Kill', remember?
Another example: secularists, for the most part, think that as long as they’re doing good things in their lives (saving the planet, feeding the poor, protesting against the world’s injustices) they’ll go to heaven when they die. All these works, they think, are a sure ticket to heaven…
But you see, that’s not what the Bible teaches.
Some 500 years ago there was a revolution in the Church which led to Protestantism – Martin Luther, the Catholic monk, was consumed with guilt because no matter what he did he didn’t feel close to God. He was an incredibly smart guy – he had been in law school. As the good law student that he was, Luther studied the Bible endlessly…and he discovered what now the Reformed Church teaches: Justification by Faith alone.
Justification by Faith alone is shorthand for …
JUSTIFICATION BY CHRIST ALONE.
You see, all it takes to get you to heaven is FAITH. Faith in Jesus Christ – He was born from a virgin and He died on the cross FOR OUR SINS, and He raised from the dead three days later.
Once you’ve intellectually accepted the Truth in the paragraph above, you’re a Christian and you go to heaven. All you have to do is BELIEVE it’s true.
You may say – ‘wait a minute. That’s just too easy!’
Think about the other religions – in Islam, you have to kill infidels to please their 'god'. Do you think killing infidels is easier than believing that Jesus is your Lord and Savior?
Or think about secularism - they think they have to do all these works and not sin to go to heaven. They think, ‘if there is a heaven, surely God is going to let me in simply because I’m such a good person and I don’t sin’.
You don’t sin?
Are you sure?
How many times a day do you have a violent or sinful THOUGHT? I hate to break it to you, but even a sinful THOUGHT is a sin. If you’re thinking right now of having sex with someone who’s not your spouse, you’re sinning right this very minute. If you’re insulting someone, you’re sinning. If you love money more than God, you’re sinning.
Do you think NOT sinning is easier than believing that Jesus is your Lord and Savior?
My friend, if you don't believe in Jesus you’re going to believe anything else. Like the student in the USA Today article – she believes the hijab will get her closer to God and the newspaper thinks it’s a symbol of feminism. Most conservatives would see right through the lie. But if you don’t believe Jesus is your Lord and Savior, then you’re likely to believe anything and everything else – from environmentalism to humanism to Buddhism.
Even if you don’t believe the hijab is taking you to heaven, you run the risk of believing that just by being a good person you’re guaranteed to go to heaven. And that’s simply NOT TRUE.
Friend, if you don’t agree with the student, that’s fine. You’re smart enough to know the hijab isn’t the ticket to heaven. But if you still think doing good works takes you to heaven, you’re sorely mistaken.
Only Jesus can take you to heaven.
2 Timothy 1-9
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.
As time progresses, new generations are born. And with this latest generation, the Millennial generation, the future seems bleak… somewhat.
You see, every previous generation thinks the next is worse than theirs or the previous one. Everyone thinks their generation is the best and that the previous one or following one is worse. Usually to them, the following one is the worse one, because they’re the ones that have to take care of the following generation. If the new generation comes out as screwed up, they get the blame for it. (Though I mostly blame liberals)
And this new generation is no different. Millennials often blame the previous generations for screwing up both them and the country. Millennials believe that this country’s best years are behind it (though it’s ironic since many of them claim to be ‘progressive’). They believe they got here at the wrong time. And they’re acting like it.
What do I mean by that? I mean that they’re the generation that refuses to grow up. Since the country’s best years are behind it, there’s no point in trying to be successful because that will only result in failure. And comfortable, moderate survival is better than trying.
I remember Rush Limbaugh talking about a story on the Daily Wire on the subject of Millennials. The article was titled “At What Age Do Millennials Consider Themselves Adults? The Answer Will Stun You.” And stun it did. They said that Millennials consider themselves adults at age 30. I don’t know about you, but I considered myself to be an adult at age 18. Why? Because that’s when you’re a LEGAL ADULT. By law, I’m considered an adult, so an adult I shall be.
Now, that’s not to say that I’m off on my own to who-knows-where trying to get some random job and start living on my own. But that’s the age where if I do something wrong, I have to take responsibility for it. I’m learning to be responsible. I’m responsible for creating some of the content of this website. I’m responsible for making sure I learn more about my Christian faith. I’m responsible about helping update my local church’s website with content. I count three more things that I’m responsible for than the typical Millennial.
If they consider themselves to be adults, something is fundamentally wrong with them and the way they were raised. If someone who’s 29 isn’t an adult yet, then what in the world are they? Children? You may joke about that and call them that, but is that really what they believe they are? Normal development of a human being starts with: baby, toddler, child, preteen, teenager, young adult, adult. If they don’t consider themselves to be adults, then they can’t consider themselves to be young adults, because adult is in the title. A young adult has less responsibilities than an adult, but is learning to grow up to be an adult. You can’t be a young adult at 29. You’re not YOUNG ANYMORE. You might be young to someone older than you, but you’re not young in general.
In basketball terms, being 29 in the NBA means you’re an established veteran (unless you started REALLY late.) In the NBA, being 29 means you’re in your prime. A young adult isn’t in his prime yet. An adult is. In real life terms, your prime years are 25 to 35. After that, you’re considered to be middle-aged, at least young middle-aged. But Millennials that are over 20 and under 30 don’t believe to be adults. Why is that? The answer is simple: Liberal rule in schools.
In schools, particularly activities, everyone gets a trophy. Just for participating. It makes the concept of trophies meaningless. And it makes the concept of competition meaningless. If little Billy scores no points in, say, a basketball game and does the worst, and little Johnny scores the most points and does the best, they both get MVP trophies. Now, little Billy was riding the bench the whole time but he still got the same reward as the kid that tried the hardest and accomplished the most. What does that tell little Johnny? That it doesn’t matter how hard he tries, his hard work won’t get acknowledged. Someone tried less hard than him and got the same thing he did. He figures he just shouldn’t try anymore if the result will be the same. At an early age, he’s taught that competition (capitalism) is bad. And that everyone should feel special.
I’m reminded of a quote from (ironically) a kid’s movie: The Incredibles (a superhero movie, in case you didn’t know). “… Everyone can be super! And when everyone’s super… no one will be.” If everyone’s a superhero, no one’s a superhero. If everyone’s an MVP, no one’s an MVP. If everyone is special, no one is.
This is the mindset of a Millennial: “Why try?” And this mindset is precisely what liberals want. But it’s the exact opposite of what God wants. God didn’t create you just so He could watch you do absolutely nothing. If He wanted to do that, He could’ve just created a blob of goo and stare at that for all eternity. He masterfully and wonderfully created you for a reason, you just have to find out the reason yourself.

Just Remember: Without Obamacare There WOULD BE NO Ryancare And We Wouldn't Be In This Democrat MESS
Let’s never forget that it’s Obama and his footmen in the democrat party who put us in this position. Without Obamacare there would be no Ryancare. So before you get too upset or happy (depending on which side you’re on) about last Friday’s ‘defeat’, let’s not lose sight of who put America’s health insurance industry in the terrible state that it is today: the democrats.
The good news is we have a president who’s very much interested in making your life better. Republicans may not agree now on what the best solution is for our health insurance industry, but sooner or later they’ll have to, if they want to renew their seats in Congress. At this point, they have everything they need to come up with a piece of legislation in which all viewpoints are considered.
This piece of legislation, it's clear, wasn’t meant to be. But not to worry. There’s a reason for everything and I believe there is a reason for this too.
In my experience when something doesn’t turn out the way I expected, somehow something better came afterwards.
Paul Ryan has demonstrated time and time again he's no effective leader – the fact that he put this piece of legislation without generating consensus beforehand is a good example of that. Good leaders don’t risk bringing up a new idea unless he or she has been able to sell it to key people first. The good news for Ryan is it’s not too late to learn.
Let’s put it this way: it’s a time for GROWTH for speaker Ryan. If he’s smart, he’ll learn from this setback. If he’s not…well, we might need another Speaker soon…
My fellow Americans, something better is likely in store for us. It doesn’t mean we just sit down and wait for things to happen – we must voice our concerns. At this point the best we can do is encourage Ryan and the rest of the Republicans in congress to IGNORE THE HEADLINES and WORK TOGETHER for a piece of legislation that’s going to bury Obamacare once and for all.
The next thing we have to do is be APPRECIATIVE. Yes, be appreciative of our freedom and prosperity.
Friends, if you thought Trump’s presidency was going to be easy you were deceived. We have to thank God for Trump.
Nothing that’s worth fighting for is easy. Nothing that’s worth fighting for is cheap.
When we have a good health insurance legislation, we’re going to protect it even more.
We tend to take our prosperity and freedoms for granted. All of us who voted for Trump know that freedom isn’t free, and that we were on a horrible path to tyranny.
But now is not the time to give up.
If you’ve ever done anything meaningful or difficult in your life, you know it takes many tries to get it right. And you also know you shouldn’t give up at the first sign of complication. Successful people overcome complications and don’t let the enemy deter them.
Think of the time when Moses went to speak with Pharaoh to ask him to free the Hebrew slaves. Pharaoh wanted nothing to do with it – he would not just let his slaves go. In the natural, there was nothing Moses could do, but important things usually don’t depend on people – they depend on God.
As the story goes, God sent plague after plague to Egypt until one day Pharaoh decided it was better to just free the Hebrews – after all, he could see that the Hebrew God was really working behind the scenes to free His people.
And then what happened?
Pharaoh regretted freeing the slaves and sent his men to chase the Hebrews…but God had a better plan. He parted the Red Sea to let the Hebrews through, but the waters closed on Pharaoh’s army killing them all.
I think it’s safe to say that passing a health insurance legislation is simpler than freeing the Hebrew slaves in Egypt.
So, don’t be discouraged – but don’t get distracted either. Forget the noise in the media. Forget the joy the democrats are feeling and focus on the goal: to make America great again.
But Moses said to the people, "Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. "The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent."
Ever since the 2016 presidential race started, and since Trump called out the news media in general for lying, less and less people trust the media.
It used to be that if you didn’t trust the media (and subsequently, the government), you were a paranoid ignorant republican hillbilly. You had to believe what the media was saying as though it was scripture. You were supposed to trust everything they said. Now, the gig is up. People no longer trust the media. They no longer trust the polls they run. They’ve opened their eyes to the truth. And Trump helped make it evident that the media was lying.
The biggest reason Trump was elected was because people believed the country was a mess. They weren’t feeling like it was the near utopia that the media was selling to them after 8 years of Obama. The media was living that utopia, but very few people outside of Washington and its elite circle was living it. In fact, they felt the opposite was happening. Jobs were being lost. People were forced to pay for the healthcare of a random Joe in Nowhere Road, Hull, Georgia (real place, btw.) The price of gas was through the roof. And the general cost of living had gone way up.
Trump exposed all that. The people believed him because they were feeling it. And the media bashed him for it. They tried to and still try to convince people that Obama was the best thing that’s ever happened to the U.S. and to the world.
And the people no longer believed them.
The news media tried to tell you that Trump had no chance. He was a joke. He would implode within a few months of the race for his party’s nominee. That he would be fighting a contested convention. That he would never be his party’s candidate. That he would never beat Hillary. That she would just trounce him. Not only in the popular vote but in the Electoral College as well. And did any of that happen? No. The man they thought was a joke is now sitting in the oval office Making America Great Again. The man they claimed would be destroyed and embarrassed in the general election, the man they tried to convince you would never beat Hillary in a million years, is now running the country.
Multiple polls had Trump losing to Hillary. Some had him losing by a couple of points. Some had him losing by a lot of points. But their message was clear: Trump. Will. LOSE. But what happened? He won. Why? Because his supporters weren’t deterred by all the exit polls the Left was running. They didn’t believe the BS the leftist media was trying to feed them. The people now widely know that they were being fed BS and have opened their eyes to the truth: The liberal news media LIES!
The empire, the monopoly that news organizations had on what you think and what you believe and what you know is no longer theirs. They no longer have the power and influence they once had. Now, you know they lie.
And as it is of March, 2017, according to a Gallup poll, Trump’s approval rating is at 37%. This coming from the same people that also said most Republicans favored a path to citizenship for illegal aliens over building a wall. How ridiculous does that sound?! I might believe that if they were polling elected Republican establishment hacks, but not every day regular people that consider themselves to be Republican and tend to vote Republican. Because for the most part, those people are part of the Republican base. Meaning they’re conservative. So Gallup has absolutely no credibility anymore.
While I was in line to cast my vote for Trump, my mother and I had a conversation with a fellow Trump supporter. She said that she had voted for Obama both times, but now she knows better. She had been led to believe that Obama was the best option for the country (though going up against McCain and Romney, I can understand her position). She might’ve believed all the stories the media said about Romney and McCain. But in 2016, she had had enough.
Enough of the lies.
Enough of watching her country be slowly and fundamentally changed into something unrecognizable.
The leftist media had lied to her for long enough… The Left had lied to her for long enough… And the devil had lied to her for long enough. The devil was hoping Hillary would win. But God had different plans in mind. He allowed for us to see the lies the devil was telling us for what they were. He awakened America to the dystopia we were headed for with Hillary. And He said to the devil “No more.”
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.”
