Thoughts on the Orlando Massacre

In light of the massacre in Orlando and comments that I have been seeing on social media, I thought I would write a short article.  In light of the life style of the victims, this is not an easy article to write.

First and foremost, what is to blame for the massacre in Orlando?  The only component to blame is the man who committed the crime (and accomplices if any).  He is a murderer and solely responsible for his actions.  He was a radical, jihadist Muslim who believed in that murderous, tyrannical ideology.  Islam teaches its followers to conquer the world by the sword and force it to submit to their false god, Allah.  They oppress women, and they kill anyone that does not submit to their ideology.  We see homosexuals murdered in Islamic countries continually.

Were guns to blame?  No.  Guns are simple tools that evil people use to fulfill their  evil motivations.  Good people use guns to defend themselves, their family, their friends, and their nation from the evil of murderers and tyrants.  Any tool can be used for evil or good.  Simply look at the terrorists attacks in Israel over the last couple of years, and we see that the main weapon being used were knives.  Is a knife to blame?  No.  Knives are simple tools.  The problem is the human heart that is terribly wicked.

The Lord Hears…

Walking with the Lord…

Yesterday I decided to mow the grass, which getting a day with no rain has been difficult. I prayed when I got out of work, “Lord, please hold the rain back until I finish mowing.”

Right when I was finishing up, a gentle, cool breeze blew a few times. Which felt really nice because I was hot. Then a soft, light mist began to fall. I felt peaceful and loved.

Our Creator is a loving father. The light rain only lasted a few minutes, enough to let me know the Lord hears our prayers. An hour later, I was out grilling and the patio was dry.

The Lord has often answered the smallest of prayers, and He has answered the biggest of prayers.  He answers prayers differently at times.  Sometimes it is yes, sometimes no, sometimes not yet/wait.  I don’t always understand why He answers some prayers one way and not others.  But, I do know that He loves us, and He knows what is best for us.

We will understand in time.

Update Thursday 6/9/16

And because the Lord decided to confirm this was an answer to my prayer, He did it again.  The rain came down hard, and I sat in my garage and watched it until it stopped.  It was beautiful and refreshing.

Patterns of Evidence: Exodus

Excellent documentary… Love how “scholars” make empty claims about no evidence for anything, yet there is plenty of evidence showing they are absolutely wrong. The lack of flexibility and closed minded stubbornness among the corrupt “scientific” community is astounding.

The chronology of Egyptian history needs to be seriously revised based on the data and evidence provided in this film.  Real scientist who value truth, accuracy, and honesty would agree that humans can be wrong and should change the view/paradigm (etc) based on new evidence and new data being discovered.  No “traditional” paradigm should ever be above examination and alteration.

The Bible is true, and there is more and more evidence proving it.

The full documentary is available on Netflix and DVD.

Seal of Hezekiah, son of Ahaz, King of Judah (Discovered)

Hezekiah Seal

Another great archaeological discovery that continues to prove the Bible is accurate.

“Archaeologists deciphered a seal impression bearing the name of the 8th century BCE biblical King Hezekiah recently found during excavations next to the Old City of Jerusalem, the Hebrew University announced Wednesday.

The bulla, a stamp seal impression, was one of dozens found in recent years in a royal building in the Ophel, excavation leader Dr. Eilat Mazar said at a press conference held at the Mount Scopus campus, and bears the name “Hezekiah [son of] Ahaz, king of Judah,” an 8th century Judean ruler.

Mazar called the artifact ‘the closest as ever that we can get to something that was most likely held by King Hezekiah himself.’ She said that the bulla ‘strengthens what we know already from the Bible about [Hezekiah].'”
