The Real Issue In Ferguson, Missouri

Bill Whittle simply and factually gives a great rundown on what is really at stake in Ferguson, Missouri.

Thought for the week

Newtown Massacre

I guess the blogosphere is running red hot with opinions regarding the Newtown, CT massacre which is understandable considering the seemingly callous nature surrounding the killer’s actions.Newtown Massacre

It does not matter that logic should need to enter the discussion surrounding the siren call for gun control which started within minutes with the US President overtly pushing for such in his crocodile tear filled eyes (he supports the barbaric murder of partial birth canal children but sheds tears over 6-7 year old children – condescending idiot) and of course the cacophony of stupefied voices coming from people in the media and entertainment circles who invariably either employ heavily armed guards or carry a side arm themselves. Just one word is sufficed to describe such – self-serving hypocrites.

It matters not to those with an irrational approach to the real cause of this and other such like tragedies that the first victim of the killer’s rampage was his mother who was an alleged “prepper” (an idiom for those preparing for some doomsday event that the entertainment media are fond of promoting to sell their sensationalist idiocy) with a stash of weapons and ammunition she and the killer regularly practiced with; or that she was struggling to find help for her Asperger afflicted son being reportedly reduced at times to lock him in the basement for protection. Who knows what flashed through his fragile mind when he found out that his mother was planning to have him institutionised? Maybe this was the trigger that caused him to let rip with such devastating consequences.

Oh, never mind, you liberal twits who want the 2nd Amendment nullified for your own selfish reason in that the law was working perfectly in this instance, for the killer was refused permission to purchase a fire arm by the authorities just days before because of his known mental state and maybe, just maybe, that caused a fit of rage due to denial and that he may have thought “everyone is out to get me” type thoughts.

Here is something else to consider: Connecticut has some of the strictest gun laws in the US that along with many other states prevents guns being carried on school premises even if they are trained in firearms use and also employed a lockout containment foyer much the same as banks use which meant he had: A) easy sitting duck targets and B) had to force his way into the complex. Maybe if someone had access to a firearm they may have had opportunity to avert the disaster at the foyer, for killers by and large do not like being shot at.

But the real elephant in the room in this woeful segment of USA history is nihilism. It is the progressive removal of God of the Bible from government, life, school, sport, entertainment et al that can be traced back to the mental state of people such as this and other killers in life. After all, if there is no God, then who are you to say what is evil and what is good? Yet, the moment such an evil spectacle like this occurs the very same people who want God removed from their life shout and scream evil, forgetting or simply ignorant that there cannot be anything evil unless there be that which is good. God is the epitome of good despite the atheist continuous straw man rant which means you do that which is contrary to His word such as murder then you are committing that which is evil.

I came across a blog that included these comments from a one “Nate13”. He hits the nail on the head about this event and other such events that have plagued the US in recent years and, might I add, in my own country of New Zealand as well as Scotland, England, Norway ad nauseam. Nate13 writes:

These events are products of sick, evil people in an increasingly sick culture that has no stomach for “outdated” concepts like absolute right and wrong. We believe if we could just pass enough well-worded laws, we could eliminate this behavior from society. We treat these tragedies as outputs, thinking that we can just tinker with the inputs enough to get our desired results.

For God’s sake, the bodies were still warm and we were already talking about piles upon piles of statistics, as if the problem of violent gun crime could be solved mathematically with some study or Congressional inquiry. I’m afraid that, absent the presence of morality in our discussions of these murders, we have no tools to solve the underlying problems except legalism and policy making. People will keep fixating on the problems with guns because we’ve become woefully inadequate at talking about problems inherent in humanity.

It always amuses me in pitying way when I hear people retreat even further into nihilism after an event like this by making that old appeal to the “Argument of Evil” which asks, “If there truly is a good god, why does he allow such evil deeds?” As if the very presence of evil invalidates the possibility or under-pinning for good!

Forgive my frustration, but what right do we have to even speak about evil in our society? We are so immersed in violence, greed, sex, instant gratification, and materialism that we’ve lost all sense of what evil even looks like. To know evil, you must first know good. And while we work ourselves into a righteous huff over “evil” for 2% of the year when these disgusting acts occur, for the other 98% we desperately try to rebel against all forms of conventional morality – that cramps our style, doesn’t it?

A child one minute before passing through the birth canal can have a pair of surgical scissors put through his or her brain without society batting an eye. A fully formed, breathing, crying, desperate, helpless baby who is the result of a botched abortion has no entitlement to life in parts of this “enlightened” Western world. And we talk about “evil”?

Government officials pass guns to cartels to slaughter civilians, and we get to talk about “evil”?

Corrupt businessmen get to use their connections to the power brokers in Washington to access public funds to bail out their billion dollar corporations (who went broke in part due to unbridled greed), and we sit here and talk about evil?

We can start talking about “evil” when we as a society find our lost sense of “good”. But we can’t relegate morality to the fringes, then demand to know where God was.

Well said, Nate13.

The following video contains graphic images that may disturb.

So, you think this is all in the past, huh? Well think about this, all the regimes mentioned rose to power because a generation of lower socio-economic people wanted what the successful and affluent had.

Don’t think it would happen in the US, huh? Neither did the people of Russia, Germany, Cambodia, China etc.

Beware, Obama is playing a game of brinkmanship that will ultimately lay the blame on the successful and affluent of the US for its entry into a deep recession next year beginning February which will lead him to usurp Congress and assume emergency rule (why do you think his minions are stepping up their anti-gun rhetoric?).

I Shall See God

Job, that ancient patriarch and prophet issues forth words of confidence that the grave is not the end of life with these words: “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me” (Job 19:25-27). How could this man, whom modern scholars wrongly consign to a people of superstition and ignorance, know about a redeemer who would buy back his soul in an all too obvious resurrected form? I say obvious because the man himself says his skin will be destroyed. Could it be that the Hebrews’ writer has, among others, Job in mind when he pens, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets” (Hebrews 1:1)? Could it be that Job, like his fellow patriarch Abraham, was confident of mind “… that God was able to raise… even from the dead…” (Hebrews 11:19)? The answer to these questions is the same as that recorded in faith’s chapter of fame in Hebrews 11 that each of the faithful have these precursory words “By faith” attached to their actions. By faith Job knew there would come a time when a High Priest will come and sympathise with our weakness because he would be tempted “as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15) and therefore have all the necessary qualifications to redeem. By faith Job knew as the only way to please God, for “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6), for this it has always been “The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17; cf, Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 10:17).

Our confidence in the resurrection is boosted by this man of knowledge so-much-so that we, too, “shall see God” by following the words of Christ “…whom [God] hath appointed heir of all things…” (Hebrews 1:2). He is the “chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded” (I Peter 2:6). The apostle Paul maintained that the resurrection was at the heart of the Christian faith. He questioned the futility of some by taking on the way without this fundamental objective in mind by saying, “if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain” (I Corinthians 15:13-14). Paul’s confidence was firmly entrenched in the resurrection of a man’s soul with these words: “Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus… For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (II Corinthians 4:14; 5:1). This should not surprise us since Jesus emphatically promised such to those worried they might not find the way home to heaven, for after assuring them He was going to prepare for them a place to reside in the resurrection, He promised, “I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3). Oh, and just in case you need a little more reassurance then, “Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing” (John 20:27). For the apostle Paul, the resurrection of Christ is solid proof that He will indeed keep His promise, for he says that Christ not only appeared to the twelve apostles but “…he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time” (I Corinthians 15:6-8). Jesus said he that “seeth” (John 6:40) is one that is able to discern God is proved as unchangeable in the past (Hebrews 6:17) and will prove unchangeable in raising the faithful to an imperishable state in the future according to I Corinthians 15:33, for we that “seeth” trust by faith in the witness of God’s word that “…blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29).

The ancient paths of the Bible conscript men and women of faith in all dispensations to testify of the resurrection’s reality. Just as they had faith and confidence in seeing God so too, we, through faith can confidently say, “I will see God”.

Thought for the week

Joel B Pollak wrote the following article that appeared in Breitbart giving his opinion why the Republicans lost the election on November 6th. Although I am not a citizen of the USA I nonetheless take a keen interest in that country’s political scene because where the largest economy in the world goes so does little, insignificant New Zealand. I, like many Republicans, was aghast that the GOP lost even though I predicted such in April 2012. Still I fear for the state of the world come four more years of the stupidity that is housed in the White House.

 

10. Republican governors – In many of the important swing states–Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nevada–Republican governors who were elected in the Tea Party wave of 2010 had made such strides that it was difficult for Mitt Romney to gain traction against Obama by criticizing the state of the country. They did their jobs all too well.

9. Jimmy Carter – In recent years, the party held him at arm’s length, with his comments about “apartheid” in Israel and the uncomfortable parallels between his administration and Obama’s. But his grandson, James Carter IV, vindicated Carter and helped save Obama by finding Romney’s “47 percent” remark on a secret tape made at a fundraiser.
8. David Cameron and Boris Johnson – The current and purported future leader of the Conservative Party in Britain, who elevated Romney’s truthful remarks about poor security at the Summer Olympics into a major “gaffe.” Cameron and Johnson outdid each other in slamming Romney, and largely negated any benefit from his foreign trip.
7. Chris Christie – He offered excessive, effusive praise for Obama’s performance during Hurricane Sandy, and gave Obama the chance to play president in a 90-minute photo-op a week before the election. (In fact, federal efforts have been nearly as bad as during Hurricane Katrina, and Obama largely neglected Hurricane Isaac the month before.)
6. Candy Crowley – She had corrected Obama officials before on their distortions about Benghazi. Yet she robbed Romney of victory in the second debate when she weighed in–incorrectly–for Obama, who claimed he had called the attacks terrorism instead of lying to the world about an anti-Islam video. Benghazi was a dead issue after that.
5. George W. Bush – He was apparently responsible for everything that went wrong in the Obama presidency. But the Iraq War and the use of intense interrogation techniques–both opposed by Obama–yielded the intelligence that led to Osama bin Laden, allowing Obama to claim big success on national security despite an utterly failed foreign policy.
4. Ben Bernanke – The Bush-appointed head of the Federal Reserve gave the economy the appearance of being less-than-disastrous with his quantitative easing policies. By slipping vast quantities of new money into the economy, he propped up asset prices and helped Obama hide the failures of super-profligate Keynesianism and crony capitalism.
3. John Roberts – The Chief Justice was attacked by liberals, and by then-Senator Barack Obama, for years. He came under vicious attack as the Supreme Court considered Obamacare. Then he invented a way to uphold Obamacare, protecting the worst “achievement” of the Obama presidency and restoring vigor to the Obama campaign.
2. Todd Akin – He was a good congressman, mistreated by the Republican Party for his gaffe on rape and abortion, for which he apologized. Nevertheless, he cost himself the most winnable Senate pickup in the nation, and boosted what had been a pathetic “war on women” narrative by Democrats, who used him to hurt GOP candidates nationwide.
1. ORCA – It’s not yet entirely clear who was responsible for this get-out-the-vote debacle, which crashed on Election Day and left thousands of Romney volunteers doing nothing. The Obama campaign suffered a similar crash in 2008 and resolved not to let that happen again. The GOP failed to learn, and inadvertently suppressed its own vote.

Comparing Theology With What The Bible Actually Says

I want to ask you, with all due respect, have you been duped by religious theologians regarding the purpose of baptism? The line that follows may be familiar with you: salvation is by faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9), not as a result of being baptised. If you believe this to be true, then the scriptures the Holy Spirit moved men to write in the first century (II Peter 1:21) are at serious odds with this all too familiar statement. Please, with an open mind, consider the following scriptures:

Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” Jesus said this is the “gospel” that must be preached (v.15). Parsing the text will reveal that faith i.e. “believeth” and full immersion in water i.e. “baptized” is not only a one time combined action but precedes the rescue from sin i.e. “saved”.

Who are you going to believe; the theologian or Jesus Christ?

Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” Jesus leaves instructions on how one is to be taught in order to become a disciple of Christ, for Jesus said, “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed” (John 8:31). Conversely, if one does not abide in the word of Christ but say in some other’s teaching they cannot be said to be in Christ (cf II John 9). The “twelve” at Ephesus found this out when they met the apostle Paul in Acts 19:1-7 and were consequently instructed to leave John the Baptist’s instructions for they had been superseded at the time the twelve obeyed them (cf Mark 1:4 John taught a “baptism of repentance for the remission of sins” applicable to the Jews prior to the cross upon which the instruction subsequently died along with the law and the prophets, Colossians 2:14). When the twelve “heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Acts 19:5). Wayne Jackson has well quoted Danker’s 2005 Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament: the phrase “in the name of” signifies to “become the possession of and come under the dedicated protection of the one whose name they bear.” These men had faith in John which Paul said must change to faith in Jesus then be baptised into Christ if they are to be saved.

Now, whose word is authority regarding baptism; the theologian or Jesus Christ and His apostles?

Acts 2:38 “…Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…” The delinquents who had within the past 50 days done to “that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified” (v.36) been convicted by the Holy Spirit inspired sermon preached by Peter and realised their guilt. They wanted to know what they needed to do to be forgiven for doing such a heinous thing. Repent and be baptised and as I noted before it is a one time combined action that precedes forgiveness that God promised to bestow. Clearly, the theologian is at odds with the grammar and implications of this verse and will even go as far as to say so. A.T. Robertson, a well respected Baptist theological word scholar had this to say: “One will decide the use here according as he believes that baptism is essential to the remission of sins or not. My view is decidedly against the idea that Peter, Paul, or any one in the New Testament taught baptism as essential to the remission of sins or the means of securing such remission” (Robertson Word Pictures).

However, who would you much rather believe, the theologian with traditional bias or the apostle who was moved by the Holy Spirit whose promise was “when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13)?
Acts 22:16 “…arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord”. Paul is here recalling the events that occurred to him on the road to Damascus (cf Acts 9:1-19). It is three days since his encounter with Jesus and he is busy “praying” (Acts 9:11). Here we see a picture of a believing man yet; clearly an unforgiven man for his sins had not yet been washed away. What is going to wash away his sins i.e. make him a saved disciple of Christ? Why it is baptism. In fact the verse says the act is to call upon the name of the Lord, “the answer of a good conscience toward God” says Peter in I Peter 3:21. For God to declare via Ananias that Paul needed to be baptised in order to be forgiven yet then have that same Paul, according to theologians, declare salvation is by faith without the need for baptism is “not being straightforward about the truth of the gospel” (Galatians 2:14) and smacks of hypocrisy and partiality both of which are condemned by God (cf Matthew 23 et al; Acts 10:34).

Who is more trustworthy in respect of the truth about baptism; the theologian or the scriptures themselves?
Romans 6:3-4 “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Clearly, baptism is a symbol of the grave that figures the death of the old man of sin and heralds the new man raised up, forgiven i.e. “newness of life”. Note: just as God raised up Jesus, so too, God raises up the forgiven but only after baptism.

To ignore the clear statement presented here is to take sides with the theologian rather than the plain, simple metaphor presented by God’s ambassador.

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Salvation is a result of God’s grace and man’s faith. Paul also states in Ephesians 5:26 that salvation i.e. “cleanse” is a result of “the washing of water by the word”. The use of water is conceded by commentators including John Calvin, Thayer, Danker and even the Baptist theologian A.T. Robertson as referring to full immersion which is the proper rendition of the transliterated word, baptism. Besides, Ephesians 2:5 says Christians are those who “were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ”. The word “quickened” means “to be alive, have intelligence” and is therefore the opposite to being dead. This verse corresponds exactly with that which Paul mentioned to the church of Christ in Romans 6:3-4 and Colossians 2:12 where Christians are those who have been “Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.”

Ask yourself the question, who is more reliable to give you the answer to what you must do to be saved; the theologian who cannot bear the thoughts of being wrong regarding his or her traditional thought on the matter or the Bible writers guided to write down the very thoughts of God Himself?

There prevails in so-called mainstream Christianity a theological bias that overwhelmingly denies the Holy Spirit moved men who spoke and wrote the word of God (II Peter 1:21) regarding the essential ingredient and purpose of biblical baptism. I implore you, dear reader, to shrug off this man made tradition that theologians have embraced and hold close those scriptures I have mentioned and many others that for brevity sake have not been mentioned.
When Jesus opposed the Devil in Matthew 4:1-11, He says Scripture speaks with loud authority over and above that of any theologian’s pen. Take a cue from the noble people of Berea (Acts 17:10-11) and examine and study the Scriptures I have presented to see if these things are so.

God’s Plan For Religious Unity

In the first century there was not all of the division among those who profess Christ as there are today. In that the church is made-up of fallible humans while the apostles were still living there were both error taught and unauthorized practices. Probably the church at Corinth was at the top of the list of digression. Among other things that congregation had factions within it caused by those who were attempting to show allegiance unto mere humans. The Apostle Paul condemned this in no uncertain terms at First Corinthians 1:10-13.
Such division is still condemned in the inspired Word of God. Even the very night in which the Son of God was betrayed by Judas Iscariot our Lord was concerned those who professed Him would become divided. At John 17:20-21, “Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” You and I know for a fact that those who profess Christ are divided into hundreds of different religious organizations. The Lord’s prayer will not become reality of all who profess Him as long as there is conflicting doctrines among what is referred to as Christendom. Just to agree to disagree will not unite those who profess Christ. You might have a form of union, but not unity. If someone tied the tails of two live cats together you would have a union but not unity.
What is the answer to this dilemma? It will be necessary for each religious group to cast off its peculiar doctrines and embrace only a “thus saith the Lord,” the Bible. Each religious group will not accept the creeds of others, but all acknowledge the Bible as the inspired Word of God. Our Lord declared at: Matthew 15:9, “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” The seven principles of unity acceptable unto the Lord are stated by the Apostle Paul at: Ephesians 4:3-6, “Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Anything less than all seven of those basic truths will not provide the unity pleasing unto the Lord.

Dishonest Propaganda

Hurricane Sandy has caused massive damage on the Eastern Seaboard of the USA over the past few days but not only that, it has also brought out of the wood work the global-warming alarmists who seek to use the disaster’s public attention to pedal their nonsensical and wanton money profiteering clap trap.

Last night New Zealand’s Television One’s News program Close Up interviewed an individual waiting to run the imminent New York Marathon who could not constrain herself from decrying the lack of global-warming coverage by the two Presidential candidates saying Sandy is clear evidence of such. Also the man sacked by the New Zealand Government’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research Dr. Jim Salinger who now pedals his alarmist theory in the USA also lay claim to Sandy being caused directly through the atmosphere being warmed by man’s discharge of CO2. This is blatant propaganda and pure ignorance of information which was released by the UK Meteorological Office and none other than the IPCC headquarters of global warming East Anglia University which both state categorically that there has been no global warming in the atmosphere for the past 16 years. The controversial head of the unit monitoring the earth’s atmosphere, Dr Phil “hide the decline” Jones fobbed the data off as a mere 16 year “plateau” obviously still clinging to the idea that global-warming is still real but just having a break. However, his contempory at Georgia Tech., Prof. Judith Curry, who by-the-way is normally on Prof. Jones’ side, disagrees with him saying the computer modelling used to show global-warming is “deeply flawed”. See this article for the report.

The point I am making is the lengths people will go to in order to promote their propaganda. They seize with relish the opportunity to spew forth what they believe to be true even though it is challenged and denied as truth by those who once spewed forth the tripe themselves.

 

It is like that when it comes to the Bible and its gospel message. A man who describes himself as one “Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal” went about “persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless” (Philippians 3:5-6). His murdering rampage was due because he felt he was abiding in the truth yet after being blinded by the “light from heaven” (Acts 9:3) he conceded he was wrong and that the law of Moses he so passionately defended as being the only law to justify one’s soul is now dead and buried having been “nailed to the cross” (Colossians 2:14). Yet, still, many today want to push the idea that the Old Law plays a part in the justification of one’s soul despite that stalwart apostle’s claim to the contrary: “But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster” (Galatians 3:23-25). He uses the adjectives “tutor” and “schoolmaster” to describe the Law of Moses which he says man is no longer subservient to. Paul concluded that the Law of Moses could not put right man’s soul from sin by saying “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law” (Romans 3:28).

Folks, those that cling to the Law of Moses to justify their belief are like Dr. Phil “hide the decline” Jones and his false belief that global-warming is still real even though the evidence is against him. Take a leaf out of Prof. Judith Curry’s book and concede like the apostle Paul that the evidence provided by those contrary is “deeply flawed” and get real with the true gospel plan before it is everlasting too late.

Political Prevarication

These past few weeks the world has witnessed some high ranking politicians in the USA engage in a disgraceful manner. I say “the world has seen” but then that is not entirely accurate because many of the world’s television media have done their best to play subterfuge to the Benghazi Consulate attack issue and have gone out of their way to hide it from the public. The terrorist attack upon the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya really only came to light through Fox News which is the only TV outlet that has deemed to come close to telling it how it is along with Glen Beck, Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, Accuracy In Media and Trevor Loudon on the internet. From these crusaders of the truth we have learned that the attack had nothing whatsoever to do with the amateurish anti-Muslim You Tube video but was a well-planned attack by al-Qaida militants with hatred and detestable murder bent in their hearts. But what we have been led to believe for some two weeks after from an Obama/Biden complicit leaning media is an orchestrated litany of lies to protect their beloved Democrat Party which is in serious trouble of losing the US Presidential Election this November 6th.
What we have witnessed is a disgraceful political prevarication but that is not the worst thing. I believe something even far worse is that four men are dead because of at best a negligent White House Administration but I fear much worse because it has now been revealed today (Oct 24th) that two of those men died seven hours after the initial attack while President Obama, Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Clinton either watched on in real time or went gallivanting off to Las Vegas to drum up support for re-election. These two men need not have died, for it turns out that help from US Military bases was apparently within a one hour striking distance. Yet these two men were left to die like foxes on the run with one of them, Ty Woods leaving behind a wife and a three month old child.
Is there any remorse for this disgusting callousness? It appears not, for Joe Biden could not contain his laughter when Governor Paul Ryan raised the issue in his Vice Presidential Debate. President Obama in a fit of sneering indignation felt offended when Governor Romney broached the subject in the second Presidential Debate. And as for Secretary of State Clinton she just scoffed and laughed at reporters today who dare ask her for the truth of what exactly happened.
Yes, this is what the Democrat Party is made up of these days – political prevaricators who have no regard for the feelings of family, friends and the public’s quest for the truth. These three aforementioned have blood on their hands in an indirect sense and the Lord God Almighty will extract vengeance on their pathetic souls unless they repent. He will also extract vengeance for the disgraceful, public display for having now placed a little three month old soul in danger as a result of their recklessness. The following verses are suffice in that regard. “And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day” (II Thessalonians 1:7-10); “Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 18:10).
