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.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”

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.”

You may know that CNN is running a series about Jesus. I haven’t watched it (because I never watch CNN), but I have to admit that I’m a little suspicious. Nevertheless, I'll refrain from passing judgment on something I haven’t seen.
In their article published last week, the author talks about Jesus’ teachings. And that's all fine and dandy, except Jesus is so much more than a teacher...
One of the problems that the left has is they think all religions are the same. They say that in one form or another all religions TEACH you how to live your life and therefore you can choose your religion like you choose what brand of milk you want to buy.
It’s interesting to point out that while liberals REJECT religions (particularly, Christianity) somehow they feel they’re EXPERTS on religion – enough to criticize them…and us...
In any case if you’re a Christian you know perfectly well that not all religions are the same. In fact, Christianity is NOT a religion – it's a THEOLOGY.
You see, in order to understand the difference between Christianity and other religions, you need to understand God's CHARACTER. You need to understand who Jesus IS.
The late D. James Kennedy, pastor of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, used to tell a very effective story to explain why Christianity IS NOT about teaching, but about SAVING GRACE.
The story Dr. Kennedy used to tell to explain Jesus was about a man who falls into a pit about 10 feet deep and 15 feet square. In the pit there’s a gigantic, venomous snake slowly approaching the man who begins to panic. He cries, he yells for help incessantly while the snake slowly but surely moves closer and closer to the man. You can imagine the man’s desperation.
Finally a Buddhist comes along. If you know anything about Buddha you know that he was a man who spent hours and hours on end under a tree trying to figure out why people are so unhappy. Eventually he came up with the idea that people are unhappy because they want things they don’t have. So this Buddhist tells the man in the pit ‘sit down in lotus position, close your eyes and tell yourself this is where you want to be. In this pit with this snake and you’ll be fine’. The man does exactly that, but after his final ‘om’ he isn't convinced and opens his eyes only to realize the snake was much too close for comfort. He jumps over the snake to the other side of the pit and continues shouting for help.
A Hindu shows up and tells the poor man in the pit: ‘close your eyes and tell yourself “this pit doesn’t exist. The snake doesn’t exist” and you’ll be fine’. The man does exactly that, but when he opens his eyes he spots the snake drawing nearer again – he leaps over the snake to the other side one more time and continues screaming for help.
Finally Jesus comes along and He jumps into the pit to join the man. He stands between the man and the snake and immediately helps the man out of the pit by pushing him all the way up to safety. As the man is now safe, the snake gets closer and closer to Jesus, who is still in the pit, and BITES Him…and Jesus dies…
Jesus DIED FOR US.
Buddha didn’t die for us.
Allah didn’t die for us.
Confucius didn’t die for us.
Only Jesus DIED for us.
You see, Christianity is NOT about TEACHINGS – it’s about SALVATION.
Buddha spent years meditating under a tree seeking enlightenment.
Jesus wasn’t looking for enlightenment – He came to SAVE YOU. He gave HIS LIFE for you.
But Jesus is our SAVIOR!
Jesus answered, “I am the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”
You know what the ironic thing is about disrespecting the flag by throwing it on the ground, stomping on it, or setting it ablaze? The fact that that’s the only flag in the world that grants you the right to be that disrespectful. If you do that same thing to a Mexican flag in Mexico, you’re likely to get arrested for it. You do that in any country with that country’s flag, you’re likely to get arrested for it.
The fact of the matter is that these “Americans” have no idea what it’s like to live in a socialistic society. Yes, Obama was working towards making America socialist, but he ultimately failed. He failed because the Founding Fathers were smart enough to place restraints on the government with checks and balances and with presidential term limits. Obama could only ever have 8 years of running the country. At least directly. He maybe could’ve had a puppet in the White House, but thankfully that didn’t happen.
Now, back to my previous point about Americans having no idea what it’s like to live under absolute socialism. That has its pros and cons. The obvious pros are that no one had to suffer under socialism here in the States, even with Obama. But they also don’t know what others in the world have to suffer through. There are billions of people in this world that don’t know what true freedom is.
I’m a foreigner myself. I came to this country when I was in my preteens, so I didn’t experience socialism in anyway except for one: I wasn’t allowed to enter my country of origin (Argentina), say to visit family, and leave without having a little piece of paper that said both parents authorized me leaving the country. Even if I’m with either or both parents. You see, in Argentina, children belong to the government. If you want to do anything with them outside of the country, the government will stop you if you don’t have that “authorization” paper. Now, that’s relatively understandable for say, a five-year-old. But, like I said, I was in my preteens and entering my teenage years. I wasn’t some little kid that didn’t know what was happening. But the government didn’t care. That’s socialism (at least one aspect) for you. The government is the supreme ruler and you must obey everything it says, regardless of how silly its rules are. (Don’t mistake that for following the rule of law in the U.S., mind you).
But you see, America was structured the way it was for the sole purpose of keeping things like that from happening. They wanted the government to have as little power as possible while still being able to protect its citizens from harm, both from within and without.
“Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” – Ronald Reagan.
They wanted the government to be powerful enough to protect its citizens but not so powerful that it can and will run people’s lives. Socialism does the exact opposite. It doesn’t care about protecting its people and most certainly runs their lives.
So that’s what’s so ironic about disrespecting the flag: They do that to the very flag that gives them the freedom to do that. And they want a government that will ultimately take away many of their freedoms, including that one. They believe good to be evil and evil to be good. What’s very clearly evil (abortion, transgenderism, sexual lust and immorality) they believe to be good. And what’s clearly good (God, Christ, prayer, worship of God, what the American flag represents) they believe to be evil.
The Left has worked well to destroy all things that are good in this country. And they’ve deceived people into believing that the U.S. is the single biggest detriment to the world in its entire history. That’s why there are people that disrespect the flag as they do. They have taught people that socialism, the governmental equivalent to a chokehold, is good, while capitalism, the governmental equivalent to a handshake (as in both parties are equal and free to do business), is evil.
But here’s the kicker, while the Left believes it’s succeeding, God is watching and chuckles at the sight of evil believing it will be victorious.
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”

House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) confirmed on Wednesday that President Trump’s transition team and possibly Trump himself were under surveillance by the Obama administration. The surveillance had absolutely nothing to do with the so called FBI investigation on Russia hacking, of which no evidence has been found. Also, it appears that the surveillance itself was conducted legally but the leaking of the information appears to be illegal.
This new information, of course, vindicates President Trump and those in the conservative media who supported Trump’s claims.
None of this is a surprise, of course. The question is what happens next?
Next we need to understand who knew what and when. Next we need to understand if Obama knew. I personally assume he knew – he knows everything and nothing was done unless he approved of it. But we'll see...
Now let me ask you this: what is the point of spying on the president elect? What motivates Obama and company to do things like this? What motivates the left to threat the President with impeachment? What motivates leftist journalists, such as NYT’s David Brooks to say ‘Trump will have to decide if he prefers to resign, be impeached or get assassinated’?
We know the deep state is real and very dangerous. The Trump presidency won’t be a walk in the park. Here’s a man who didn’t have to run for president to live a luxurious life. In fact now that he’s president his life is more complicated than before – and he’s potentially an assassination target. He didn’t need any of this and yet he’s assumed the responsibility to turn this country around so that OUR lives are better. Whether he’ll succeed or not is yet to be seen. But you have to give him credit for the courage.
But back to my question: what motivates the deep state to attack Trump like this?
You could say it’s the desire of power. Or the desire of money. Or a combination of both. And I would agree. But this isn't the whole story - there's more...
You see, the problem is much more profound than that.
The root cause of this problem is this:
The Obamas of the world, with so much hunger for power, are not in the business of making YOUR life better. They’re in the business of making THEIR lives better.
They’re self-centered. They’re selfish. They’re egotistical. And at the heart of their selfishness is their rejection of righteousness and their embracing of EVIL.
Think about it this way: what’s the purpose of man? Why are you here? Why did God create you in His likeness?
He created us so that we grow more and more holy. God created us in His image so on some level we’re supposed to be holy. After all, He is holy so we have the tools to be holy too.
None of us really are – not yet anyway. We’re born in sin and as we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we begin our journey to become more holy. We become righteous – we’re ‘imputed’ righteousness. This means we’re not righteous on our own – but God sees us as righteous just by virtue of our Faith.
Our job as Christians is to become as holy in this life as we can be. That’s what it means that we’ve been created in God’s likeness. We have what it takes to get there because God's made sure of it.
But not everybody’s mission in life is to become more Christ-like.
People like Obama, Pelosi, Ryan, McCain, Hillary, Bill Clinton, etc. have a different mission in life: SELF-SATISFACTION. And self-satisfaction comes in different forms – for Obama it’s evidently POWER. For Bill Clinton is more about SEX…and I guess power too. They seek the short-term satisfaction for THIS LIFE at the expense of their ETERNITY. How foolish!
Is the Deep State panicking?
They sure are – but for the wrong reasons.
They’re panicking because they fear losing their power – and the money that comes with it.
But the Deep State SHOULD PANIC for the RIGHT REASON – as all of us should.
What’s the right reason to panic?
Being left behind – nope, not economically. By being left behind I mean our inability to enter Heaven. Why would anyone risk burning in hell for an eternity when you can have eternal life in Jesus Christ?
Friend, if you’re not as bad as Obama, but you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior I urge you to do it right now. He knows your heart – He knows of your sins. But He’ll forgive you if you truly repent.
If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Not only was he inarguably the worst president in American history, but he was the most crooked one too! Thetruthdivision.com released an article listing 78 illegal things Obama did during his time in the Oval Office. Here are just some of the crimes Obama committed:
And many other things that the article covers.
But here’s the point: Obama is a CROOK!
One thing that the article doesn’t mention is the fact that he has also wire-tapped Trump Towers to spy on then President-elect, Donald Trump. So that’s one more thing that he can add to his crook résumé’.
In the article in which I talked about how Trump is the people’s champion, I briefly mentioned that no other past president (perhaps with the exception of Bill Clinton) is more deserving of a jail sentence than Barack Hussein Obama. One look through that list of transgressions is enough to both convince and remind me of the fact that Obama was crooked during his presidency. (And likely will remain just as crooked in his post-presidency life.)
What lies at the center of this crookedness shouldn’t come as a surprise to most if not all of you. What lies at the center is evil. Evil itself. You see, contrary to what the Left would want you to believe, man is born evil. He’s born a sinner. And it’s only through the divine ordinance of God that we can be good. There can be no good in this world without God. Think about it, you can’t spell GOOD without G.O.D. Since we know this to be true, we also know that Obama and just about everyone on the Left (and those within the Republican establishment) is evil. And crookedness is simply one part of evil.
During the 2016 Presidential Race, Trump would often refer to his opponent, Hillary Clinton, as Crooked Hillary. And he was right. With all the things that Hillary has done, not to mention the scam that was the Clinton Global Initiative, one can accurately say that Hillary was a crook. But the title of crook doesn’t just go to Hillary. Since she’s been defeated, and out of the picture, there’s no longer a need to refer to her as Crooked Hillary, regardless of how true that really is. Instead, we should start referring to Barack Obama as Crooked Barry. Since that reference is just as true as Hillary’s, it works.
But back to my previous point, about Obama and the Left being evil, the reason I say that they are evil is because they live without God in their hearts. You see, man is born evil, but he can choose to remain evil or turn to God and be righteous. Man can be good only through God. Now, you may be thinking: “But Freddie, a person can be good without God. A total stranger can be nice to another person out of the kindness of their own heart without God.” Well, here’s the thing. Under whose standard is a person good? Society’s, government’s, or God’s?
In today’s society, it’s good to be gay. It’s cool. It’s good to want to enter the ladies' restroom if you’re a man. It’s good if you’re crossing the border illegally and entering a country illegally. It’s good if you claim to be a refugee, claiming to be running away from the very oppressive rule you’re trying to impose on other people and in other countries. Government (at least its establishment) thinks the same. Society is progressive... Government establishment is progressive... God is God. God thinks that all of these things are wrong. And He should know, since He created absolutely everything, including the dark angel who thinks these things are good.
God has said that being gay is a sin. It’s not right. God didn’t intend for man to be with man, or woman to be with woman. He doesn’t want women and children to be in danger of being raped or killed because a burly man claims he thinks is a woman. He doesn’t want people to enter a new country and make it into the one they left or escaped from. That’s not immigration, that’s invasion. It’s not society’s or government’s standard of goodness that we should strive to meet. It’s God’s. And we can only hope to meet it if the Holy Spirit lives within us.
People think they’ll enter heaven if they’re good people and do good things. Those people are wrong. It’s not through works that you’re granted access to heaven, it’s through the Lord Jesus Christ. I don’t know if Obama thinks he’s going to heaven. He probably doesn’t believe in it and won’t believe until he’s gone from this earth. But I can tell you now, he’s Hell-bound. Unless he finds Christ, that will be his ultimate destination.
“What shall we say then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is; a righteousness that is by faith; but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works.”

In case you've missed it, Cate Blanchett has recently said in an interview with Stephen Colbert that her moral compass is 'in her vagina'. What Blanchett doesn’t realize is that this sexist comment actually feeds the misogynists she's so desperately trying to combat.
You see, if instead of Blanchett saying this dumb comment it was someone like Johnny Depp or Matthew McConaughey saying ‘my moral compass is my penis’, you would immediately call either man a pig. And that’s because such a comment would MAKE these men pigs.
When you have a woman lowering herself to a sex object she’s falling right into these pigs’ hands. Think about it: chauvinists don’t even have to make any efforts to convince women they’re absolutely worthless and nothing but sexual beings. These ‘feminists’ are doing all the job for them. Cate Blanchett has put herself in the ‘just-a-sexual-being’ category. She’s nothing but a sex toy. Her emotions, intelligence, talents and spirituality are absolutely irrelevant – all that matters is her vagina.
'Pigs' of the world: thank FEMINISM for that.
Feminists have now become misogynists.
They hate themselves so much that they’re willing to lower themselves to the status of ‘stuff’. They’re nothing but stuff – a sexual object to be used and discarded by the very men they say they hate.
If you’re a woman, like I am, you know that women like Cate Blanchett are hardly a role model for anything moral.
You see, I refuse to let anyone – male or female – put me in a little box labeled ‘sex toy’. You cannot expect others – male or female – to respect you if you don’t respect yourself.
Ladies, young and not so young, should be VERY CAREFUL who they listen to. DO NOT let ANYONE fool you into thinking that your sexual organ can dictate anything positive in your life. If you let it rule your life, you’ll be miserable. Why? Because even YOU won’t be able to respect yourself when you allow your animal instincts define you.
Nobody who loves women – and I doubt Cate Blanchett loves women or even herself – would talk to women or about women like that. A good man – a GODLY man – would NEVER even imply that a woman’s worth is her sexual organ. And a good woman – a GODLY woman – would NEVER waste a second of her time with a man with such mindset.
Do you know what the best moral compass is?
God teaches us to respect ourselves and others. God has instituted marriage and family because He knows a good family is the best foundation for a solid, prosperous life. Look around you and you’ll see how people raised in broken marriages tend to have more issues in life – from financial issues to spiritual issues.
But God intended men and women to be GODLY. He doesn’t want men to abuse women or women to disrespect men. The Bible teaches men to love their wives as they love themselves. To love them like Jesus loves the church. And women are supposed to respect their husbands.
With the kind of husband and wife the Bible commands, there’s no room for disrespect.
I feel sorry for Cate Blanchett and anyone who feels the same way. Misogynists rub their hands when they hear women trash themselves like this. All they have to do is get them into bed (something obviously easy to do with women like Blanchett) and throw them into the garbage the following morning, assuming they feel like spending the whole night with these women. How sad...
I truly feel sorry because it doesn’t have to be this way for women.
Ladies, don’t believe these lies. You’re VALUABLE. You’re WORTHY of LOVE.
Jesus LOVES YOU and you have to aim high when looking for a husband.
Don’t settle for less - you’ll save yourself a lifetime of regret.
Fathers, teach your little girls to love themselves as Jesus loves them.
Mothers, teach your little boys to love girls like Jesus loves the church.
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up His life for her.
By now you know that Derrick Watson, US District Judge for the District of Hawaii, has stopped Trump’s travel ban. You may not know that the basis for the ruling is NOT Trump’s executive order’s constitutionality, but rather Trump’s comments on CNN during the campaign trail.
In other words, candidate Trump said something back in 2016, which Derrick Watson didn’t like, and now the judge feels like it’s time for revenge.
The constitutionality of the judge ruling is in question – I don’t know what Trump is going to do about it. But clearly the Judge has overstepped his power.
But this Judge’s decision to stop the travel ban on the basis of some comment back in 2016 isn’t the worst part. There is a bigger problem here that I’d like to point out.
And no, I’m not referring to the possibility that another liberal judge might one day stop Trump from sending troops to the Middle East if doing so is in the best interest of our National Security. Yes, this would be a problem. And Watson’s ruling is a problem because he’s setting a precedent in interfering with the Executive Branch of government in its ability to protect Americans. But the problem I’m referring to is so much bigger than that…
You see, our Founding Fathers were right. They were CHRISTIANS who believed man is sinful in nature. The understanding of this key principle based on the Bible has created the most free and prosperous society the world has ever known. The understanding of our sinful nature on the part of our Founding Fathers is the REASON Americans are FREE.
Let me explain.
The Framers, as you know, created the division of powers: Executive, Judicial and Legislative Branches. They also created the division between Federal government and State and Local governments. And in fact, the Framers granted LIMITED powers to our government – State, Federal, Local, Executive, Judicial and Legislative. They all have limited powers according to our Constitution.
Why? Why did the Framers do that?
Because power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Our Founding Fathers knew that when you give too much power to ANYBODY there’s a high chance that that person will ABUSE his power. They gave us checks and balances BECAUSE THEY KNEW man is sinful.
And yes, man is absolutely fallen and inclined to ABUSE whatever power he has. History confirms this fact. Hitler, Stalin, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Un – these are all examples of individuals with ABSOLUTE POWER and no checks and balances. They are also all MURDERERS.
When you remove the restraints from men and give them absolute power, their SINFUL NATURE prevails and they impose TYRANNY.
Liberals like this Hawaiian judge believe that man is not sinful, but rather good in nature. And society makes him bad. Man is a victim of society and he only needs a good government to rule over him. History tells us that’s not true.
Liberalism leads to TOTALITARIANISM
NOT BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO TOTALITARIANISM
BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO FREEDOM
When you understand this principle, like our Founding Fathers did, then you realize we need checks and balances so that we can all be free and prosper.
Liberals are not only opposing this travel ban – they’re jeopardizing your safety and YOUR FREEDOMS.
There is not one example in history where rulers with absolute power ever restrained themselves and allowed people to be free. Not one example in history.
The Hawaiian Judge is displaying signs of authoritarianism. He’s actually proving Christians are right.
He’s proving liberalism leads to abuse of power and Christianity leads to freedom.
The Judge doesn’t like the travel ban because of what Trump said in 2016 and he’s using HIS POWER to put YOUR LIFE at risk. That, my dear friend, is what totalitarians do. They have ZERO respect for your life. If you give this Judge more power, he’ll abuse it even more. If you remove all restraints from this man, he’ll turn into Hitler or Stalin.
In any case, God is in control. I don’t know why He’s allowing this judge to overstep his power. Perhaps He’s trying to take us back to our Founding Fathers' philosophy. Or perhaps He’s testing Trump. I don’t know.
But I do know that while it’s true that we’re all sinful in nature, we can also free ourselves from sin. When you reject Jesus, you’re a slave – a slave to your desires of power, money, women, sex, drugs, etc. But when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you’re FREE from all these demons.
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”
