A Little Something Different Round Up

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good", but that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We confess that.
We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery,
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare,
We have killed our unborn and called it choice,
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable,
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem,
We have abused power and called it politics,
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition,
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression,
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of Your will and to openly ask these things in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ.
Amen" ~ Reverend Joe Wright, before the Kansas State Legislature, 1996

    nehemiah:

    Melissa,

    Thanks for that post today. I do that frequently myself personally to justify the evil that I do sometimes -- to try to excuse it in some way. We most certainly do that as a nation and I hope that God will still be merciful to us and not let go his hand. I hope we will turn to Him still as a nation. Merry Christmas to everyone here at Wizbang, including the liberals. Though I personally hate your guts, He loves all and awaits to quickly come to us as the father ran to meet the prodigal son when he turned his heart toward home.

    irongrampa:

    We've sponsored/adopted 9 so far through Soldier's Angels. I'd adopt them ALL if circumstances permitted.

    One of them ,we discovered, lives 8 or 9 miles from us, and we've developed a good friendship with him and his wife, and their 2 GREAT kids, aged 4 and 6.
    Can't do as much as I'd like, but at least we can do SOMETHING to show appreciation for these people.

    Thank you Irongrampa

    Our first adopted soldier was KIA. Our second has never replied, which is okay, we understand he's quite busy. His wife sends an email every once in a while to let us know how he's doing. We found they live in an area of a state we frequently visit in the summer so we're looking forward to meeting them next year.

    Jesus certainly didn't like the Pharisees.

    By the way, I'm not Jesus. I'm a human being, capble of evil just like you, max.

    "By the way, I'm not Jesus."

    Not sure where that came from, but you'll get no argument from me on that point. I was under the impression that being a Christian meant trying to live like Christ. Hence all the "WWJD" BS. Apparently nehemiah, like many CINO's believes they can decide which tenets of the faith they want to abide by and which they can ignore. Rational people call that hypocrisy.

    nehemiah:

    So, you believe that there is no God but know what Christ thinks and what Christians should believe.

    Well, fk you. That comes from my Christian heart. And that goes for your family of losers too. May they turn out just like you next year. Merry Christmas.

    Amen, nehemiah. Only a true hypocrite could write that.

    Okay you two, Nehemiah, Max, cool it. I've been refereeing my two kids ages 12 and 10 all day long only to check in here and find I have 2 more kids duking it out over what they do and don't believe.

    I posted a prayer. Believe in God or not, your choice, but don't turn my post into a battle ground, please.

    LaMedusa:

    My favorite part of the Reagan story, Melissa:

    "Perhaps those lean years are one reason why Ronald Reagan once said a particular Christmas gift was especially memorable for him. It was his favorite gift and it came from his brother Neil. He called it "a gift truly in keeping with the spirit of the day." Neil had been struggling to find a suitable gift for his brother; they both were middle-aged adults and both men had successful careers.

    Neil solved his dilemma by writing a letter. In the letter, Neil told his brother he had found a truly needy family with small children "who wouldn't go to bed with dreams of Santa Claus in their head." Ronald Reagan recounted how his brother Neil changed that and "became Santa himself, providing a Christmas from tree to turkey plus toys and gifts for all." Included in Neil's letter was a very detailed blow-by-blow account describing the "joy of the children and the grateful happiness of their mother."

    May you and your family have a truly blessed Christmas. As dismal as the elitists have made this world, we know how the story turns out. "The Kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. And He shall reign forever." We are not fooled any more by unlawful and unholy spiritualism, for we know the one and only God of the Universe and His one and only Christ will restore the world without the corrupt money changers. The same ones who have profited from innocent blood lie and say "there is no God and no Christ".

    Well, here is his answer to them: "And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity." That does not mean, "Go stand in a corner..."

    Merry Christmas Melissa! :) :) :)

    No, that just makes you inconsistent, for Joe Wright's little "prayer" that Mrs. Rogers posted is just the right-wing equivalent of some of the America-bashing nonsense that got JEREMIAH Wright in trouble. And what the heck is "spiritual equilibrium" anyway?
