John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Are we scared or just stupid?

 

I live in one of the inundated Border States but this issue of Illegal Immigration is not exclusive to the Southwest. No, MS 13 and other criminals from the Middle East, Asia, South and primarily Central America have run away and hidden all over these United States of America, making this flood of unskilled people undesirable.

 

Do you continue to sit there and drink from the Poison Tea served with force by the Socialist Democrat Party or will you join or begin the Local Republican Quest for the salvation of the Democratic Republic Government Style established by the Founding Fathers and nourished by the Citizen Army that preceded us in our efforts

 It's over. Unless something quick is done there are thousands upon thousands illegally pouring in. The numbers are off the charts.

If God is truly sovereign (and I believe so) there is never any reason to be scared. There is nothing we can do nor that we can avoid doing that can change even one detail of what God already decided would happen in our lives nor in the lives of others.

 

Grace and Peace

Bill, I have to place some blame on President Trump himself . He is painting himself into a corner and it is getting more and more difficult to even read his emails daily . For instance , I see no harm in him posting  a poll question that I consider important for everyone to participate in . For instance ; " Is building the wall a priority ? " To answer the question you must give first name, last name, zip code and date . No problem. Then upon answering the question with an obvious ' Yes ' thinking to see the poll results , you are taken to a board asking for a minimum donation of $ 42.00 . In other words to get the poll results you have to donate that amount or you don't see the results. I am frustrated at the president for this line of trickery because there aren't a lot of retired people who can reach into their wallet and grab that amount of the rent money to send to Trump just to see the results of a poll.

I can't help but believe that many others are frustrated at Trump for this line of deceit and have just ' unsubscribed him ' ! And that's a certain danger when you have liberal socialist democrats lurking in the dark looking to add to their decrepit numbers.

No,I do not wish to sit and watch my nation driven into a socialist state. The problem is not with the people. The problem is with the worthless Republican leaders who think more of adding to their bank accounts  by rich donors who will most certainly enjoy coveted favors to add to ( their) riches ! Instead of serving their constituents and this president these useless RINOs are sitting back watching the socialist democrats honor the mega illegal votes to build their socialist utopia ! Suggest you watch TCT tv 'Faith In History ' last two episodes . William Federer is quoting George Washington and his grave warnings about what is happening in this day and age. He foretells of a nation that elects leaders that eventually see their offices as a way to ignore the people and get rich doing it . Remember, George Washington gave these warnings over two hundred and fifty years ago. And they are happening NOW ! Just go to www.TCT.TV and look up William Federer's Faith In History ....the Washington warnings .       M

I want to believe that we have a large majority of conservative people who look at the aspects of socialism and get very worried that it could happen here. Fast forward past New York , Los Angles , San Francisco , Washington DC and the other liberal socialist strongholds that have been taught to believe that everything is free and never think of a way the false promises of the Hillary Clintons and Bernie Sanders are going to pay for it. Think of the industry that President Trump has brought back from foreign soil where Obama put them with his high taxes and government regulations . That and many jobs will be gone while industry moves back over seas. Again ! Socialism has made its mark on  unsuspecting people who think it is a state of utopia and they have nothing to worry about. Frankly I would hate losing my home by having to surrender it to a bank that will give me a choice. Pay an exceptionally high interest rate or move out ! That's strange language to many who have never known what it was like to live under total government control. The only hope we have is that the majority of conservatives in more moderate parts of our nation get out the vote and keep any though of socialism as far as can be imagined. We ,the Christian conservative moderates along with other conservatives who love this nation must understand  that the president is under attack by a vicious group of liberals who are demanding he be dismissed from office . That's insanity ! Moved by greed and the lust for power these democrats and yes, Republicans too , have gained wealth and power on the backs of the American tax payer ! We have to pray our way out of this one or understand that God is fed up with the abuse and corruption in our nation and it is ripe for judgment . Amazingly this is not the only time in our history that corruption has invaded our nation .  M

It's the lack of knowledge  of never having to experience living under a totalitarian state . We are so used to freedom and liberty that we cannot imagine what living under a dictatorship must be like. It's hard to imagine that a dictator like Kim Jong Un can work innocent people to death and never suffer any sorrow over the loss of human life. More difficult when it involves children . If minorities ever bothered to look at the history of slavery they would learn that it was the southern democrat plantation owners who bought them and brought them into a life of unimaginable suffering of being over worked and starved to death . They have been brain washed into believing that the democrats are " the party of the people."  Promising but never delivering . What party do they vote for ? Democrat ! Slavery actually began with Muslims sailing the waters of east central Africa where they captured natives with unrelenting cruelty separating entire families and selling them to British traders who in turn sold them to southern democrat plantation owners. What is the most popular religion among minorities ? Islam ! Now they have the democrats telling them that our president is a racist and the Republican party is the party of white people . Sadly, many believe that lie .

Reading of the Israelites we can see a picture of what America has become.  They would prosper and forget God. . Over and over . They allowed gentiles to teach their children. The history is there we, meaning us Christians , have followed suit. We send our children to liberal schools. We do not stand strong for the Word. Example what did the Dallas Theological Seminary say , how did they stand in 1972 ?  We say we can not afford to send out children to privet schools yet how new are are cars do we have a boat of RV. How many time do we 'eat out' ? The question becomes are the children, the next generation, really important to us.  Are mom and dad wiling to give of themselves to build Godly principles in the kids? We Christians will mock other Christians who are doing so. Maybe the girls wear long skirts, dont cut their hair,  that makes them weird? "They"  are not as perfect as i am. I can play at the edge of sin because i have grace. We send our kids to liberal schools justifying the act by assuring our selves we are teaching them to be 'salt' .While we sit in the shaker. 

 

For the record. I did not home school my kids..  hind sight is 20/20.   No way do i wear long skirts dress up for me is a new pair of jeans.

 I think the new style is having jeans with large gaping holes in them. Seen a few of the female students here in China wear them like that and it looks absurd. But hey, I ain't no expert in fashion.

As a baby boomer it is difficult to fathom the younger generation now as opposed to the time I was growing up. There is no comparison . We never owned a TV until I was fourteen years old. One channel on air that you could sit a nun in front of without blushing. Women wore skirts below the knees and men wore long sleeves buttoned to the neck. Streets were clean and crime was almost unheard of. Few families owned cars because public transportation was so inexpensive . When an elderly patron entered the bus boys would stand up and offer them their seat. Police were respected , not hated and despised like those today who are taught that they are the enemy and the street corner thugs are the friends .

I don't know if we can make a comparison between Israel and America as it is today . I picture life in Israel as being a difficult challenge just to have the bare basics for survival . We turn the faucet on and water comes out .Israelites walked several miles to open water wells where they had to share it with domestic and wild animals . Sanitation ?  The same with food . Butcher the lamb, pick the produce and wait for the wine press to squeeze out the grapes for tonight's dinner . I want to believe  why we are so corrupted in this world is that the populations are in the billions and land occupation is to the fullest. There are very few places in todays world that have not been visited . Israel and  surrounding nations numbered in the lower millions . But Israel had the ultimate advantage. They were the people of God . And yet because of their inclination  to sin and corruption they were brought down to a remnant that would actually serve God with a true and devout heart. " Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel ,all whose knees have not bowed to Baal and every mouth that has not kissed him."  1st. Kings 19:18 .

I don't know if I can agree that educating a child in a private school is any better than a good public school that has strict rules and regulations as to what is expected of them . And I know of only a very few middle class parents that can even afford private education for their children.

America can survive only if believers use the honor and privilege of prayer . It is not that difficult. We have the promises ,the natural corrupted world does not . " Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace ,that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Heb.4:16     M

Bill is right here, watching, thinking and doing my best to think before shifting lips into gear.  The discussion, up to and including this post has not been important.

 

This post tried not to offend the Tender Hearted (Oxymoron) Bleeding Heart Liberals but was rather, a failed attempt to cause them to think the issue through that has awarded the American Tax Payer with the flood of Unskilled Labor who have reintroduced diseases to large population centers, like L.A., that are Decades in the past without the breaking of our Legal System that is, now allowing an assortment of Major Cartel Operatives, Minor, Punk, members of Machete hacking Teenage Gangsters and Arabs that can enter by no ther method.

 

To this point MD, yours is the only input that attempts to address any of the multitude of issues that are addressable within and between the line of verbiage of my OP.

 

And ALL, please note, that last paragraph, using this new generations destructive and idiotic lack of language usage is one of those IMO statements... just as is this one.
