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.”

We tend to make salvation in Christ the Savior difficult and complicated. Odd that for most people accepting a gift is quite easy and we are especially grateful for any gift and yet, for some, accepting God’s gift is seemingly impossible. God doesn’t ask us to jump through hoops, work ourselves to death, go into a small room and “confess” our sins to a man, or give $20.00 in order to ask for forgiveness. A cheerful giver never expects anything in return, neither does Christ the Savior, our Creator, Yehwah, Yeshua.

The only thing God asks us to do is accept his gift. Some think the actual gift comes later but that’s not true. His gift of salvation includes his Holy Spirit, who gives our lives meaning and helps us to discern right from wrong in our own hearts.

Some ask what can we do about the violence in the world today. Others attempt to make man-god laws. None of these things will give us true peace and happiness. Accepting God’s gift can put an end to all this misery.

Men Shall be Lovers of Their Own Selves

2 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV)

3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

The Foundation of Truth

What is your foundation for truth? Do you even have one? Or, do you care? Shouldn’t we all have one? I mean, how do you measure anything if you have no yard stick or barometer in which to compare it too?

Personally, I choose to make my foundation of truth God and his Word in the Bible. Regardless of what we choose are we so progressive in our nature that we, not only allow for the changing of our foundation of truth, but work very hard at making it a change that too often is rooted in the desires to better fit a narrative or a preferred lifestyle.

Historically, this action has always been. I suppose it has become man’s nature, due to the loss or focus on one foundation of truth. The Bible teaches that if we take our eyes off God and look to our guidance and salvation through man, we will become lost. God understood that man on earth would be required to find the right balance between seeking a righteous life through God, while obeying to laws of man, providing, of course, that they do not conflict. Not an easy task but one that becomes easier if we keep our eyes on a foundation of truth that doesn’t move and never changes.

In the Bible, in John 1:1 it says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” This mostly tells us that God’s Word, my foundation for truth, has always been and will always be. With that kind of consistency, it should indicate a great place to focus one’s work to compare the works of man to that of Truth.

If we study history, however, what we find is a constant changing or interpretation of this Truth into which it becomes man’s truth. Governments, churches, groups and individuals have created their own understanding of even what the Bible says in order to position themselves in power over people, control people in every facet of their lives, change government, alter the foundation of church, change laws, promote different, most always more decadent, lifestyles, justify sin/wrongs and an entire host of other aspects of life.

Where do you seek truth?

Pope Francis I in the United States

The left has its pope

*Editor’s Note* – If Mr. Sowell is correct in that prosperity needs an explanation, then an explanation is needed as to how and why the Vatican holds and/or controls the majority of wealth in the world. While it is easy to pin this “fish-hat” guy to being owned by the left, blaming prosperity, as this pope does and the brainwashed left, on the plight of the poor, to the real enlightened, the blame rest squarely on the Vatican. IT created poverty and IT perpetuates it to their advantage.

The pope disparages the actions of burning fossil fuels as contributing to that fake concept of global warming. And yet, is subsidized in its wealth by owning a significant amount of stocks in petroleum companies. The list is unending.

Perhaps the lying, cheating, thieving fish-hat guy should practice what he preaches (that pun just slipped right out). He is no different than all the rest of the hypocritical evildoers of the world by utilizing capitalism, while demonizing and blaming capitalism, in order to deflect attention away from the real source of poverty.

Both the authors of the bishops’ Pastoral Letter in the 1980s and Pope Francis today blithely throw around the phrase “the poor,” and blame poverty on what other people are doing or not doing to or for “the poor.”Any serious look at the history of human beings over the millennia shows that the species began in poverty. It is not poverty, but prosperity, that needs explaining. Poverty is automatic, but prosperity requires many things – none of which is equally distributed around the world or even within a given society.

Begin Gog and Magog?

The Russians have installed modular housing units — enough for “hundreds” of people — at the airport, as well as portable air traffic control equipment, the official noted.”All of this seems to be suggesting that Russia is planning to do some sort of forward air-operating hub out of this airfield,” the official said.
