We contribute directly to the world by self-expression.  By shining brightly, you give others permission to shine the same.
Christopher Howard,  Instant Wealth – Wake up Rich

You are the light of the world, a city on a hill cannot be hidden.
Jesus (Matthew 5:14)


Instruction in Inconformity

August 21, 2010

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.  Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
– George Bernard Shaw

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.  Romans 12:2

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. Genesis 1:26-31 (emphasis mine)

We were made to conform to the image of God, not the patterns of the world.

New Page

August 20, 2010

I have started working on a new page for this blog this week, titled The Nature of the Created Universe.

It resides at its own page because it is foundational to my view of the world.  I hope these ideas will prove valuable to my readers as well.  The series is off to a good start, but there is more to come; as I plan to try to communicate the reasoning by which one can develop an absolute conviction that our Creator really did endow us with certain “unalienable rights” .

By the way, eventually, the page will deal squarely with the unalienable/inalienable controversy in the Declaration of Independence — everything in its time,  so stay tuned!


Making (Patriot) Friends

August 15, 2010

Yesterday, I had a face-to-face meeting with a room full of new friends whom I consider American patriots.  We came together to plan strategy for an upcoming event, at which we hope to influence many to get more informed and be more involved in standing against the threats to our uniquely American constitutional republic.  It was a beautiful day; everyone could have certainly taken advantage of the break in the rainy weather to carry out important items on their personal agenda.  Instead, we gathered to work for the cause of liberty.   Some of the attendees traveled from out-of-state to take part and offer insight into methods that they have already had good success with.  I drove two hours each way to attend, and ended up with a committee assignment for my troubles.  I don’t mind.  I love this country and I can’t sit by and watch the big-government progressives in office at every level destroy what is left of her.  Don’t sit by and assume someone else will take care of it either.  I’m adding contact information for my new friends to my blog roll.   Below I’ll include the links and tell you where they are from.  Maybe you are close enough to one of them to join in. Be a patriot!

I Predict

August 5, 2010

It is my assessment that the giant sucking sound that you are beginning to hear is your individual liberty going down the drain.  The Obama administration is getting the chance to load up the Supreme Court with those who will go along with the Progressive move toward an ever more invasive and more autocratic Executive branch.  Below is a link to the final roll call on the confirmation vote for Elena Kagan.  I include it so those who value their individual liberties will know which White-House-lackey Senators to blame in November.
