• Worship Him September 12 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Psalm 149:4 Listen to today's Devotional

    One of the major problems with our worship is that we evaluate it by asking the wrong question. For example, we might ask someone who’s attended church: “Did you enjoy worship?” But the point of worship is not that we enjoy it, although we certainly should, but that God enjoys it; that He is pleased and honored by it. So a better question would be, “Did God enjoy your worship?”

    In worship, God is the audience, and we are on stage. If our worship is true and God-honoring, He is blessed by every hymn sung, every word proclaimed, every gift given, and every testimony spoken. Worship is all about Him … and all for Him. So let me ask: Does God get pleasure out of the worship you offer Him? https://mailchi.mp/fa07b9149ef1/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452993?e=9cbe669f39

  • This IS the way it will happen. It already has in a few states...

    It’s a Sunday night and your family has all gone to bed. You let the dogs back in and lock the deadbolt like you do every night. All the lights are off now except a couple of night lights scattered throughout the house leaving that dim glow throughout your home. It’s bedtime and work and school are going to come early in the morning. You crawl in bed, kiss your wife and drift off to sleep being thankful for the air conditioning that allows you to pull that heavy quilt up over your shoulder despite the fact it’s still 85 degrees outside. A few hours pass...

    0200 Monday morning and your wife taps your leg and says, “baby I heard something outside”. As you sit up in bed you hear the dog growling in the living room and you know something isn’t right. You grab that trusty 'ol 870 and head into the living room. Your wife grabs her 9mm and heads down the hall to the kids rooms just like you have rehearsed. “Good boy” you say as you enter the living room, trying to calm both the dog and your wife just as splinters fly across the room and the front door flies open. “Oh shit!” As you shoulder your weapon and send a load of 00 Buck across your living room and see the perpetrator fall in a heap. Before the “thank God” can even run across your brain, you see a second man coming in the door and you fire again. This time you hear the pop of your wife’s 9mm as she has joined in the fight. It has to be those damn meth heads from down in town! Just then you are consumed by a wall of bullets as you see multiple muzzle flashes from just outside the door and you realize something isn’t right. You turn to yell at your wife to “get down” just in time to see her take a load of buckshot to the face and her brain matter splatter the wall behind her. You feel the burning as 5.56 rounds riddle your body. One clips your spine as you’re scrambling away and paralyzes your lower body. The last thing you see before you bleed out is a SWAT guy from your local PD holding your teenage daughter on the floor with a knee in her back as she screams and cry’s because she just watched her parents being murdered.

    Why did this happen? You’re no criminal. You’re a Conservative and an honest family man. Your wife is a school teacher and your daughters are on honor roll. Why did this happen?

    Well two days ago, you and your wife went down to welcome the new neighbors to the community. Your wife made them some of her “world famous” cookies and you invited them to church on Sunday. Later that afternoon, you got a friend request on Facebook from your new neighbor, which you gladly accepted. They seemed a little odd, but in the few minutes you talked they were pleasant enough. The next day while you and your family sat in church, your new neighbor scrolled through your Facebook profile. He saw that “Trump 2020” post and got infuriated because he’s a staunch liberal and he hates your kind. The next thing he sees are the hunting pictures you took last fall when your daughter bagged her first buck. Now he’s seething with fury because he is wholeheartedly against the “slaughter of innocent animals”. Next he sees your post from the last range day with your buddy and sees those scary black assault weapons on the table and that does it! He has to do something about the racist, right wing extremist, domestic terrorist living next door. He picks up the phone, calls the local Sheriffs Office and reports you as a threat under the new Red Flag law. The Sheriffs Office follows their SOP’s and conducts a no knock warrant because you have now been denied due process and you are considered guilty until proven innocent.

    Now you, your lovely wife and two deputies have been killed for nothing. Your daughter will have absolute hell for the rest of her life. She will never be that successful person you dreamed for her to be because of the mental tragedy caused from seeing her parents murdered. The local news paper will report that you were killed after firing-on, and killing, two deputies and that “over a thousand rounds of ammo and 22 guns were confiscated from your residence”.

    Oh... those two deputies were just following orders. They left behind families as well and had served their community for over a decade. They didn’t know you were a stand-up guy with a great family. They weren’t allowed time to investigate things under due process. They were told you had threatened your neighbor and were out in the street waving an AR15 around.

    This is the reality of Red Flag gun laws. Innocent people will lose their lives, including police serving these unconstitutional no-knock warrants. Red Flag laws will be used for petty and vengeful reasons without merit by gun hating liberals who believe if you own guns, that it somehow automatically makes you a threat to society and therefore you are a right wing extremist domestic terrorist who MUST be stopped and neutralized at all costs (for the safety of others).

    Do not forget that ALL gun laws are an infringement of your rights!

  • Paradise
    "Let Paradise, California, be the wakeup call for our entire nation.
    We need a Green New Deal to address the climate crisis.

    Paradise-Is Down A Two-Lane Blacktop
    Narrative Poem By R Andrew Ohge
    As we close in on the 2020 American Political Race-this poem rings more true than it did in 2002 when I first wrote it. If we aren't ready to do what needs to be done to get this for ourselves and children, perhaps we deserve to be serfs in the oligarchy we'll get instead.
    [The Way 'Paradise ' SHOULD Be?]

    First, we were drawn by the land,
    enticed by the promise of freedom…
    fresh faces in new places, where
    we built our farms, our stores, mills
    smithies, with our own dreams
    and our own Hands, paying our way
    with the sweat of our brows,
    leaving our bones and legacies
    as our testimony to those
    who would follow.

    Then, great factories replaced
    the smithies, concrete towers
    supplanted the wheel mills, and
    we were drawn from the land
    to the growing cities for what we
    believed were better dreams,
    brighter futures,…"the good life."

    The farms we left were swallowed
    by corporations, the family
    store was neglected by the lure
    and flash of the corporate chains.

    We were the great middle class,
    living a vision, that for most of us,
    never truly existed, leaving
    nothing, but broken dreams
    as our legacy.

    Times and paradigms pass.
    Some of our small towns just died,
    some were swallowed by the
    circling cities, others are
    barely hanging on, yet,
    here and there, new pioneers
    are returning, bring their
    fresh faces to the old places,
    rediscovering the old ways and
    creating new ones, as America
    finds her roots again.

    Hollywood, Broadway, & Prime Time
    doesn't show our true image.

    Our story isn't on CNN or in USA Today.

    We've journeyed back, off the
    Interstate, rebuilding the
    Courthouse square, starting farms,
    building houses, stores, and families,
    infusing our enterprises with
    faith, truth, love, patriotism, and a
    determination to not allow our
    unique visions or our new freedom
    to ever be swallowed by mere
    sound-bites, glamour, glitz,
    or pulp fiction.

    The America and World
    we must become is the one
    we always knew in our hearts.

    We had only to remember that
    Paradise is down a
    two-lane blacktop,
    where the tree of
    wisdom waits for all
    who prefer revelation
    over information.

    The super highways
    and bypasses, the
    jets, planes, buses,
    and trains can only take you
    by the "American Dream".

    The turn down that two-lane
    is a calculated decision
    to arrive there, a journey
    you take, only if you're
    hungry for a new vision,
    if you're ready to put down
    some new roots, and make
    your own legacy with
    your own hands and the
    sweat of your own brow.

    If you've caught
    that pioneer spirit,
    then here's the place
    to draw close to the tap
    roots of the "American Dream",
    where the juices flow
    strong and rich, near the power,
    right at the source.

    You have truly arrived,
    friend, for you've
    come to a powerful
    place to begin anew,
    where you can find purpose,
    change the landscape, acquire
    wisdom and real estate, create
    your own legacy, where your
    accomplishments and children
    earn respect and receive honor,
    where your babies and bones
    are attended with reverent
    tender care by real peacemakers.

    Oh yes...if you destroy,
    mar, steal, or harm
    those and that which
    is in their care,
    you'll have a fight
    on your hands, the like
    you'll not soon forget.

    No, real peacemakers are
    the architects, the restorers,
    the creators and shapers,the
    healers, the comforters and
    nurturers, the sowers and
    caretakers of paradise.

    They are recreating and
    shaping their future and
    shall be counted blessed.

    No need for a plane, bus,
    or a train to come.

    We're waiting at the
    gates of paradise at the
    end of any two-lane blacktop,
    beckoning, as Lady Liberty
    has for over a century,
    "Send us Your tired, your
    poor, your downtrodden,
    struggling to be free…"

    We'll be waiting.

  • With Two Weeks Until #GlobalClimateStrike, Organizing Intensifies in 100+ Countries to Win 'Livable Future for All'
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/09/06/two-weeks-until-globalclimatestrike-organizing-intensifies-100-countries-win-livable
    Jessica Corbett, staff writer

    As youth with the Fridays for Future movement took to the streets Friday, two weeks ahead of the global #ClimateStrike planned for Sept. 20, environmental activists continued to raise awareness about the upcoming protests being organized in more than 100 countries.

    Climate campaigners already have registered over 2,500 strikes worldwide, with more than 450 actions planned for the United States, the advocacy group 350.org announced in a statement Friday.

    To register for an event or find one near you, visit globalclimatestrike.net. For U.S. strikes, visit strikewithus.org.

    The demonstrations on Sept. 20 will kick off a week of action that coincides with a United Nations climate summit in New York City. Tamara Toles O'Laughlin, 350.org's North America director, said Friday that the global strike "is an intergenerational and multiracial moment to make our stand for our right to transformative climate action that preserves a sustainable, healthy, and livable future for all."

    "With the leadership of young people backed by grandparents and parents alike, health workers, teachers, cab drivers and more, now is the time for all of us to come together to demand that real climate leaders at the national, state and local levels hold fossil fuel companies accountable for decades of negligence and damage," added Toles O'Laughlin, recognizing the youth activists that inspired the global movement.

    Some of those youth activists—including Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg—gathered outside the U.N. headquarters in New York Friday, chanting: "No more coal! No more oil! Keep the carbon in the soil!"

    Friday was the second consecutive week that Thunberg joined youth protests for urgent climate action outside the U.N. headquarters following her two-week journey across the Atlantic on a carbon emissions-free sailboat. Thunberg tweeted Friday, "Even though I've taken a sabbatical year from school, I will still demonstrate every Friday wherever I am."

    Xiye Bastida of Fridays For Future NYC explained that the global strike on Sept. 20 "isn't a goal, it's a catalyst for future action."

    "It's a catalyst for the engagement of humanity in the protection of Earth," Bastida continued. "It's a catalyst for realizing the intersectionality that the climate crisis has with every other issue. It's a catalyst for the culmination of hundreds of climate activists who won't stop fighting until the climate emergency is over."

    A campaign by U.K. Student Climate Network shared a video promoting the actions Friday that caught the attention of author and activist Naomi Klein—one of the high-profile adult climate leaders who have spoken out in support of the global strike.

    6:46 AM - Sep 6, 2019
    In addition to NYC, activists are organizing strikes in Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Seattle, Washington D.C., and other major U.S. cities.

    Jesus Villalba Gastelum, a 16-year-old Earth Uprising L.A. city coordinator and Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles organizer, noted that L.A. is "a diverse city of many roots, including Indigenous, Mexican, Spanish, American, and Tongva."

    "We are organizing the L.A. Youth Climate Strike from a place of love, hope, and resolve," said Villalba Gastelum. "Our march is calling out inaction on the climate crisis, and stands in support of refugee rights, human rights, and dignity for all."

    Villalba Gastelum added that "while this mobilization is youth led, we welcome people of all generations to join us."

    Looking ahead to the upcoming actions around the world, Future Coalition executive director Katie Eder said Friday that "our message will be clear—we must act now to avoid the worst effects of climate change because all of our lives depend upon it. We are the new face of the climate revolution and we demand just and equitable climate action."

    The Future Coalition, which is coordinating the U.S. youth-led strikes, has released a list of demands for the actions. Fast Company detailed those demands in a report earlier this week:

    A Green New Deal: Building on "the" Green New Deal resolution in Congress, this calls for transforming the economy to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030, while creating jobs and ending leases and permits for fossil fuel projects.

    Respect for indigenous land and sovereignty: Honoring treaties protecting indigenous land by ending resource extraction in and affecting those areas.
    Environmental justice: Investing in the communities affected most by poverty and pollution.

    Protecting biodiversity: Protecting and restoring 50 percent of the world’s lands and oceans and stopping all deforestation by 2030.

    Sustainable agriculture: Investing in regenerative agriculture and ending subsidies for industrial agriculture.

    "Too often, we think about solutions in a very small-minded way, inside the box," 19-year-old Eder told Fast Company. "We don't have time to stay in the box. We really need to be more innovative with our solutions and ask for what we need, not what we think could be possible or has been possible in the past."

    350.org executive director May Boeve, in the group's statement Friday, outlined the emergency the world currently faces and what needs to be done to address it.

    "Climate breakdown is one of the greatest human rights issues we face. Fighting climate breakdown is about much more than emissions and scientific metrics—it's about fighting for a just and sustainable world that works for all of us," she said. "We need to start by phasing out fossil fuels, building real and long lasting solutions, and prioritizing the communities at the frontline of the climate crisis."

Tamara Toles O'Laughlin, 350.org's North America director, said Friday that the global strike "is an intergenerational and multiracial moment to make our stand for our right to transformative climate action that preserves a sustainable, healthy, and livable future for all." "With the leadership of young people backed by grandparents and parents alike, health workers, teachers, cab drivers and more, now is the time for all of us to come together to demand that real climate leaders at the national, state and local levels hold fossil fuel companies accountable for decades of negligence and damage," added Toles O'Laughlin, recognizing the youth activists that inspired the global movement. Some of those youth activists—including Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg—gathered outside the U.N. headquarters in New York Friday, chanting: "No more coal! No more oil! Keep the carbon in the soil!" 350 dot org ✔ @350 · 9h HAPPENING NOW: school strikers with @f4f_nyc and @GretaThunberg are striking outside the UN. #ClimateStrike View image on Twitter 350 dot org ✔ @350 The youth strikers with @f4f_nyc have unique demands for the #ClimateStrike in NYC on Sept 20: ❌No more fossil fuels 🌎Globally equitable climate solutions + environmental justice 💰Hold corporate polluters accountable#StrikeWithUs where you live: http://350.org/strike Embedded video: https://twitter.com/350/status/1170002773728997376 10:56 AM - Sep 6, 2019 Friday was the second consecutive week that Thunberg joined youth protests for urgent climate action outside the U.N. headquarters following her two-week journey across the Atlantic on a carbon emissions-free sailboat. Thunberg tweeted Friday, "Even though I've taken a sabbatical year from school, I will still demonstrate every Friday wherever I am." Greta Thunberg ✔ @GretaThunberg School strike week 55. New York City. Even though I’ve taken a sabbatical year from school, I will still demonstrate every Friday wherever I am. #FridaysForFuture #schoolstrike4climate #ClimateStrike View image on Twitter 10:21 AM - Sep 6, 2019 Xiye Bastida of Fridays For Future NYC explained that the global strike on Sept. 20 "isn't a goal, it's a catalyst for future action." "It's a catalyst for the engagement of humanity in the protection of Earth," Bastida continued. "It's a catalyst for realizing the intersectionality that the climate crisis has with every other issue. It's a catalyst for the culmination of hundreds of climate activists who won't stop fighting until the climate emergency is over." A campaign by U.K. Student Climate Network shared a video promoting the actions Friday that caught the attention of author and activist Naomi Klein—one of the high-profile adult climate leaders who have spoken out in support of the global strike. Naomi Klein ✔ @NaomiAKlein Love this. https://twitter.com/Strike4Youth/status/1169929252856315905 … YouthStrike4Climate 🌍 @Strike4Youth We’re told we can shop our way out of the climate crisis😂Let’s get serious! ✊🏾 Find your nearest climate strike on Fri 20 Sept https://www.ukscn.org/events/r/twclvid2 …#ClimateStrike #GlobalClimateStrike #YouthStrike4Climate #ClimateEmergency #UniteForClimate Embedded video: https://twitter.com/Strike4Youth/status/1169929252856315905 6:46 AM - Sep 6, 2019 In addition to NYC, activists are organizing strikes in Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Seattle, Washington D.C., and other major U.S. cities. Jesus Villalba Gastelum, a 16-year-old Earth Uprising L.A. city coordinator and Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles organizer, noted that L.A. is "a diverse city of many roots, including Indigenous, Mexican, Spanish, American, and Tongva." "We are organizing the L.A. Youth Climate Strike from a place of love, hope, and resolve," said Villalba Gastelum. "Our march is calling out inaction on the climate crisis, and stands in support of refugee rights, human rights, and dignity for all." Villalba Gastelum added that "while this mobilization is youth led, we welcome people of all generations to join us." Looking ahead to the upcoming actions around the world, Future Coalition executive director Katie Eder said Friday that "our message will be clear—we must act now to avoid the worst effects of climate change because all of our lives depend upon it. We are the new face of the climate revolution and we demand just and equitable climate action." The Future Coalition, which is coordinating the U.S. youth-led strikes, has released a list of demands for the actions. Fast Company detailed those demands in a report earlier this week: A Green New Deal: Building on "the" Green New Deal resolution in Congress, this calls for transforming the economy to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030, while creating jobs and ending leases and permits for fossil fuel projects. Respect for indigenous land and sovereignty: Honoring treaties protecting indigenous land by ending resource extraction in and affecting those areas. Environmental justice: Investing in the communities affected most by poverty and pollution. Protecting biodiversity: Protecting and restoring 50 percent of the world’s lands and oceans and stopping all deforestation by 2030. Sustainable agriculture: Investing in regenerative agriculture and ending subsidies for industrial agriculture. "Too often, we think about solutions in a very small-minded way, inside the box," 19-year-old Eder told Fast Company. "We don't have time to stay in the box. We really need to be more innovative with our solutions and ask for what we need, not what we think could be possible or has been possible in the past." 350.org executive director May Boeve, in the group's statement Friday, outlined the emergency the world currently faces and what needs to be done to address it. "Climate breakdown is one of the greatest human rights issues we face. Fighting climate breakdown is about much more than emissions and scientific metrics—it's about fighting for a just and sustainable world that works for all of us," she said. "We need to start by phasing out fossil fuels, building real and long lasting solutions, and prioritizing the communities at the frontline of the climate crisis."
