Divorcing God

DivorcingGod

Our founding fathers intended religion and morality to be pillars of the new republic, providing the restraint that would allow liberty for the citizenry. Today, this delicate balance of religion and state has been eroded by a secularist push to isolate Christianity in our culture and render it irrelevant. As a people, we either return to our Christian roots… or we divorce God altogether.

There really is not much more I can add to this write-up “…we either return to our Christian roots… or we divorce God altogether.” This pretty much sums it up!

Godspeed & Good Views!

They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It by Brigitte Gabriel

stopped

They Must Be Stopped is New York Times bestselling author Brigitte Gabriel’s warning to the world: We can no longer ignore the growth of radical Islam―we must act soon, and powerfully. Gabriel challenges our Western and politically correct notions about Islam, demonstrating why radical Islam is so deadly and how we can halt its progress.

Brigitte Gabriel speaks her mind:

*Fundamentalist Islam is a religion rooted in seventh-century teachings that are fundamentally opposed to democracy and equality.

*Radical Islamists are utterly contemptuous of all “infidels” (non-Muslims) and regard them as enemies worthy of death.

*Madrassas in America are increasing in number, and they are just one part of a growing radical Islamic army on U.S. soil.

*Radical Islam exploits the U.S. legal system and America’s protection of religion to spread its hatred for Western values.

*America must organize a unified voice that says “enough” to political correctness, and demands that government officials and elected representatives do whatever is necessary to protect us.

THIS was an excellent book! Brigitte Gabriel went to great lengths to explain the Islamic mindset and thought process. Enabling you and I to see how they plan to use our system of rights and laws to get their way and tear our system down. Thus replacing it with Sharia Law. And she follows on with how we can combat such tactics. Unfortunately for us, there are just too many Liberal & Activist politicians, judges and lawyers.

The Christian, The Court and The Constitution by Jay Alan Sekulow

christian-court-constitution

An overview of the Christian’s civil rights.

Well written and a great amount of information concerning YOUR rights as a Christian in school or in the work force. A quick and worthwhile read. Many choose to yield their rights because they are intimidated, but your rights are protected and paramount!

Godspeed & Good Reads!

Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World! by Andrew Breitbart

RighteousIndignation

Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the “liberally biased” major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way.

In RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION, Breitbart talks about how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on. Along the way, he details his early years, working with Matt Drudge, the Huffington Post, and how Breitbart developed his unique style of launching key websites to help get the word out to conservatives all over.

A rollicking and controversial read, Breitbart will certainly raise your blood pressure, one way or another.

********

I found this book to be extraordinarily written, in that it was aimed toward those people who need every possible aid in defending their view with respect to the Liberal Progressive mind set. If you are looking to get into the game, not necessarily politics or television or the media, but you are seeking a way to get your point across without giving up your ethics or moral standards. Many see themselves having to compromise in their morals or ethics, but you don’t.

Sadly, instead of having a discussion with some people actually becomes hard work when they have a Liberal, Progressive, Socialistic, or Communistic position. You do have to be a bit brash in order to get your point across, but do you actually think you will change their minds? Probably not, all you can hope for (from my experiences in evangelizing or witnessing to non-Christians) is to plant a seed in their minds.

Andrew Breitbart was a Liberal minded progressive person, by his own admission and by the indoctrination that he had gone throughout his schooling. But he was steered away from it through the ideas of others and began to think for himself. In his first chapter he showed that he repeated much of what he had been told and his mind was on autopilot…then he learned what he was doing and began to relearn things and became the man he was destined to be!

Written on the Heart: The Case for Natural Law by J. Budziszewski

written-heart

Voted one of Christianity Today’s 1998 Books of the Year! With uninterrupted clarity, frequent eloquence and occasional humor, J. Budziszewski presents and defends the natural law tradition in what is at once a primer for students and a vigorous argument for scholars. Written on the Heart expounds the work of the leading architects of theory on natural law, including Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas and John Locke. It also takes up contemporary philosophy, theology and political science, colorfully running against the intimidating tide of advanced pluralism that finds natural law so difficult to tolerate. Throughout the volume, Budziszewski sure-footedly achieves his self-confessed aim of displaying the “subtlety, richness and intellectual surprise” of the natural law tradition.

A bit of a tough read, but well worth it! It is quite an aid in understanding the Natural Law in order to apply it toward the laws of God, as well as, biblical precepts. Natural law is as important, in that, it is but another way to discuss Christian Design to another not of our faith.

What You Need to Know about Islam and Muslims by George W. Braswell

islam

Geared toward both the student and the interested general reader, What You Need to Know About Islam and Muslims is an all-you-need-to-know-and-more book about the Islam. Written in simple language, this book describes to Christians the story of Islam and the Muslim people, and their aggressive plans to establish Islam in every culture.

An intriguing book on the knowledge about the religion of Islam and the Muslim practices. While this does not go truly in depth to explain doctrines of the beliefs, but what they believe overall. Touching on many of the discrepancies of the teachings about Jesus. Truly a remarkable work and truly a worthy read on the subject!

Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth by Ben Shapiro

brainwashed

When parents send their children off to college, mom and dad hope they’ll return more cultivated, knowledgeable, and astute–able to see issues from all points of view. But, according to Ben Shapiro, there’s only one view allowed on most college campuses: a rabid brand of liberalism that must be swallowed hook, line, and sinker. In this explosive book, Ben Shapiro, a college student himself, reveals how America’s university system is one of the largest brainwashing machines on the planet. Examining this nationwide problem from firsthand experience, Shapiro shows how the leftists who dominate the universities–from the administration to the student government, from the professors to the student media–use their power to mold impressionable minds. Fresh and bitterly funny, this book proves that the universities, far from being a place for open discussion, are really dungeons of the mind that indoctrinate students to become socialists, atheists, race-baiters, and narcissists.

This is an excellent primer for those intending to go into the university system, either as a student or an academic. While this is not a universal truth by any stretch of the imagination, it is quite telling of the university mindset and academia.

How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them: 11 Rules for Winning the Argument Kindle Edition by Ben Shapiro

debate

The problem, as Ben Shapiro puts it in this must-read, is that “because conservatives don’t think about how to win that they constantly lose” in confrontations with leftists. The solution is to stop taking the bullying and learning to argue for victory.
Among Shapiro’s rules for beating the left in confrontations are:
Be willing to take a punch. (conservatives tend to shy away from confrontations because the left is rhetorically violent; but it is important “to walk toward the fire.” )
Hit hard, hit first. (leftists stage muggings; instead of fighting by Marquis of Queensberry rules, conservatives need to accept the strategy Mike Tyson: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”)
Immediately frame the debate. (“When you’re discussing global warming , for example, the proper question is not whether man is causing global warming but whether man can fix global warming—a question to which the universally acknowledged answer is no unless we are willing to revert to the pre industrial age.”)
There are eight more rules that will allow a conservative to debate a leftist and destroy him. How to Debate Leftists and Destroy Them is not just a “how to” book. It is a survival manual.

By far one of the most succinct and to the point discussions on debating someone from the opposite side of the isle (i.e., a leftest minded liberal.) Just as discussed in his book that the left has one play to knock you down and get you off your game. But a debate with a liberal minded individual is, in fact, a war. And you must be willing to strike first and strike hard! And keep striking until they are finished. This is one of the greatest failing of the conservative movement because they believe that they can overcome all these hits with something substantive…but people only see and understand when you have been knocked out…we all have this failing because we were brought up, overall with a sense of fair play. But in a war, all stops must be pulled and you must be willing to win the war, not just the argument.

Without a doubt, a very good read and worthwhile information! It is a short book and would & could very easily be put to memory and to the test!

Godspeed & Good Reads!

Fools Crow: Wisdom and Power by Thomas E. Mails

20140504-223708.jpg

Frank Fools Crow is regarded by many as the greatest Native American holy person of the last hundred years. Nephew of Black Elk, and a disciplined, gentle, spiritual and political leader, Fools Crow died in 1989 at the age of 99. Fools Crow: Wisdom and Power is the only book to reveal, often in his own words, the philosophy and practice of this historic leader.
Over a period of years beginning in 1974, author Thomas E. Mails met many times with the remarkable Sioux holy man Frank Fools Crow, and was entrusted with the powerful, transformative and healing teachings of this important leader. Fools Crow healed and touched many lives, and continues to do so in this cherished classic of Native American spirituality.
This edition of Fools Crow: Wisdom and Power includes additional photos of Fools Crow (some previously unpublished), an afterword with an overview of the great teacher’s Seven Ways of Healing, and a foreword by Russell Means.

I have always had a respect for the Native American Indian and their respect & reverence of the earth & environment. Many of their beliefs concerning land ownership…it wasn’t theirs. Their use of what was needed versus the white man’s get/use all that you can…what we don’t need we can sell. Very wasteful! The Native American Indian lived simply, lived off the land and without destroying it. I still have a fondness, ideally & pragmatically speaking. Of course, their simplistic way of life was their undoing.

Democracy in America (Penguin Classics) by Alexis de Tocqueville

20140502-093922.jpg

In 1831 Alexis de Tocqueville, a young French aristocrat and ambitious civil servant, made a nine-month journey throughout America. The result was Democracy in America, a monumental study of the life and institutions of the evolving nation. Tocqueville looked to the flourishing democratic system in America as a possible model for post-revolutionary France, believing that the egalitarian ideals it enshrined reflected the spirit of the age and even divine will. His insightful work has become one of the most influential political texts ever written on America and an indispensable authority on democracy.

This new edition is the only one that contains all Tocqueville’s writings on America, including the rarely-translated Two Weeks in the Wilderness, an account of Tocqueville’s travels in Michigan among the Iroquois, and Excursion to Lake Oneida.

To one degree it was a hard read, on the other hand it was a valuable & good read, and in other respects it tends to leave you hanging. In-that, wondering where he made certain conclusions…based upon who’s input, etc. It has been well over ten years since I read it and believe I should read it once again.
