I continue to wonder how people of faith who voted for Pres. Obama are not bothered much by his strong pro abortion position!
Seven days into 2014 and it is extremely cold here in southeastern PA and other parts of the country. I hope you are staying warm. Before I get on to the swearing topic, I want to share that I am off the hotspot and back to a good Internet provider. That cheap hot spot was slow and curtailed my Internet usage. Now that things are back to normal, I am able to return to the level of blogging and commenting on various online venues as I did when I had Comcast.
I sparked something yesterday on my favorite online venue, Facebook. We are in another facet of deepening cultural decline. I for one cannot get use to people and their increased usage of swear words. On Facebook, I am seeing plenty of reposts of pro-swearing memes like this one.
Now putting this up against the word of God makes this assertion absurd. I respond that swearing is nothing but filthy/corrupt communication that goes against the Lord I also asked when is it okay for children to start swearing so they can grow in honesty and trustworthiness. Most times I do not get a response, but I did from the latest pro-swearing poster and a few of his friends. Well, one of the responses which received a few likes expressed that there was nothing wrong with children swearing and that it was free speech.
I was asked where in the bible does it talk about filthy/corrupt communication; thus, I gave them the following:
Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Colossians 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
I did get a thank you from the poster of the meme. Most responses tried to play down the significance of the biblical scriptures by saying there were more important things wrong in this world compared to swearing. Even though the Lord makes it clear in his Word on what should come out of our mouths, these folks felt it was not significant. I did not respond any further. They were responding under spiritual conviction. I know the Lord is dealing with them in His way. Please see Isaiah 55:11. I leave it there.
BTW, my new Christian blog will start this Friday/Saturday.
Hey, we are all sinners, because the word of God says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God…” Read the passage concerning anyone and the Lord Jesus Christ here and also and travel the Roman Road here. We can love the person and not their actions that we see wrong according to the Word of God. If you do not think you can love some regardless of their wrong doings, ask a mother about her love for her prison time serving son or daughter.
My Christian blog is still on the way. When the blog is up and running, you may see a post like this from time to time, but this category of post will remain mostly on this blog of politics, culture, family,history and inspiration. My Christian blog will be about thoughts and music from the word of God.
This awful violence of young blacks today coming from behind with sucker punches and the sometime use of club like weapons to knock the victim unconscious, is known as the “knockout game.” This is beyond barbarism. I know most reports do not identify the perpetrators as black, but that is who they are. What is going on with the mothers of such these days? I say mothers, because it is a good guess that there is no father in the homes of these perpetrators.
I hear excuses being made, such as anger, no father in the home and no jobs. But as far as this concerns me, there is no excuse whatsoever. I know times are bad, but for blacks, times in decades past have been much worst. I think about what it was like for both my grandfathers way back in the day! As bad as things were for them as young men, they did not go out and commit horrible violence on anyone. They did the best they could under the circumstances.
This cover up of the race of those who are doing this horrible violence by the mainstream media and even some not reporting it at all says much about the low-level of their journalism. This is all so wrong! Go here and here to read more.
It is time to get back to the business of blogging. This blog has been on hiatus for about 2 months. During that time for almost 4 weeks, I was without any Internet connection at home. I am working with a less expensive Internet connection for the time being; therefore, I am dealing with slow loading of pages with many images and buffeting video clips.
In returning to the political and cultural, so much has been and is going on such as, the Republican attempts to defund the Affordable Care Act led by Sen. Ted Cruz, the Republican infighting, the partial government shutdown with its protests and the strong possibility that the United States can go into default this Thursday appear to be hurting the Republicans while positively affecting the Democrats. I hear Sean Hannity talk about how the government shutdown during the Clinton years did not hurt the Republicans. He was right. I was a Democrat back then, and it did upset me when the Republicans maintained their majority in both Houses of Congress in the following national election. But now, political thinking is skewing more and more to the left. Did not leftist, Barack Obama win a 2nd term as President? I hate to see what will happen to this country if the Democrats get control of both Houses of Congress.
In returning to the subject of blogging, during my hiatus I was going to add a Christian page to this blog. Well, I changed my mind. I will be starting a new Christian based blog. My Sunday music posts are gone from this blog and will be on my new Christian blog to hopefully be up and running in a few days. I am glad to be back and hope you will return to reading this blog and will spend some time checking out my new blog.
