New Todd Agnew Song That Really Touched Me

Pretty blue eyes and curly brown hair and a clear complexion
Is how you see Him as He dies for Your sins
But the Word says He was battered and scarred
Or did you miss that part
Sometimes I doubt we'd recognize Him

Cause my Jesus bled and died
He spent His time with thieves and the least of these
He loved the poor and accosted the comfortable
So which one do you want to be?

Cause my Jesus would never be accepted in my church
The blood and dirt on His feet would stain the carpet
But He reaches for the hurting and despised the proud
I think He'd prefer Beale St. to the stained glass crowd
And I know that He can hear me if I cry out loud

I want to be like my Jesus!
I want to be like my Jesus!

Global Warming myth

A friend named chris asked my stance on global warming......

Let's say I believe the global warming myth, the government is the wrong group to fix it. Check it out everywhere the President goes he rides in a motorcade of 12 armoured suburban that get like 2 gallons to the mile so if he tells me to go green I am going to say suck it. I think the oil companies are actually leading the movement. Most people don't care about the environment, however they do care about there wallets. The oil companies jacking fuel up to $5.00 a gallon will inspire way more alternative fuel vehicle purchases than any figure head. Al gore travels preaching impending doom dude travels 5 days a week on a private jet think he could save the ozone by staying home and shutting up. I think we need a curve in the way we do energy but it wont come from a government and no one thing will fix it. Frankly the Iraq war is about oil because no oil no country and until oil is more expensive than gold I don't see the wars ending because we need the oil and need to keep those who threaten it at bay. Maybe by 2016 oil wont be an issue but according to some nuts we will all be dead by then anyhow...

Mexican Martin Luther King

So today a gentleman named Raza is leading a civil rights march for Mexicans. Do Mexicans deserve American rights? I am not talking about Hispanics or people who were born here or went through proper channels to get here those are Americans, Americans all have the same rights but those rights are for those who are legal to be here. If you are here without proper entry or on an expired visa you don't get rights. If you are Mexican, Haitian, French, Cuban, German WHATEVER you get the rights afforded to you in your country not here. This Raza guy thinks he is a Martin Luther King of sorts. Seriously is that the path to citizenship you want? The Civil rights marches of the past which gave blacks the rights they have now were for rights they deserve because they were American. They had a rough road and their ancestors didn't necessarily want to come to this country but through Slavery they definitely earned their place. Ok so we can use that as a path to citizenship. Lets hunt down some slave accounts, these of course wont be 100% accurate as literacy was discouraged among slaves. So we shall find the worst accounts and double their severity for accuracy. You want in your family can endure that path for a few hundred years then you can march. There is a path,If you think its broken fix it but don't bypass it. Some general rules learn basic civics, speak English. I would imagine this is appropriate for all countries. If I wanted to be a German citizen I should probably speak German regardless of the fact most of them speak English. A good chunk of the world speaks some form of English as a second language but you should be able to speak the native language of the land you live in.

There is no racism, no racial profiling. Your American or your not. Your legal or your not. I think that police should ask everyone red yellow black or white if they belong here. I also think if you stand out on a public right of way with a sign that says "I am Illegal" that is probable cause for the police to stop and have a chat. I think there should be two paths to citizenship.

1. Serve in the military for 2 years and learn the above mentioned basics.
2. If those in the front of the line trying to do it the right way wish they can be bumped up to come in and do the jobs that are opening up by removing the illegals. I am for swapping. Lets kick out 300,000 at a shot and let 300,000 in from the legal route.

Candidate Match Game



So I took the quiz at http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/election2008/candidate-match-game.htm and above is the results according to them...

James for president 2016

My Personal stances and explanation where needed

Iraq War:For
Yes we had to get rid of sadam, no there was no wmd's, yes it is about oil and if you wanna see our economy crash remove oil from it. Weather you like it or not in America oil makes the world go round. This may not be the case in the future but it is now so suck it up we need oil or nothing happens.

Abortion: Against
Once the heart starts stopping another human stopping it is murder. Abortion is not a valid method of birth control.

ACLU: Against

Affirmative Action: Against

Walmart: For

Gay Marriage: For
Divorce rates are un-real and marriage is a government institution. I think if a church wants to say no to gay marriage I support that. But in a world where people get married for taxes, citizenship and other legal reasons, and in a country where the government can say yay or nay on a marriage it is no longer a religious institution. There are two parts of marriage the legal and the church. I think if the church wants to say nay fine but the legal half should be ok.

Gun Laws: Against
Laws only keep honest people honest. Gun laws prevent law abiding citizens from having guns, criminals don't care. In a world where only the bad guys have guns is a bad world.

Holocaust: Happened

Cuba: Get Over it
If we can trade with Iran and China we can trade with Cuba, the cold war is over get over it.

UN: Against

PETA: Against

Education: For
I think if we ripped the money away from the war on drugs and dumped it in to education we wouldn't need a war on drugs.

Guantanimo Bay: For

Flat Tax: For

Universal Health Care: For

Illegals: Against.
I think we need to do two things. Make the correct path easier and deny citizenship to those who bypass it. We also need to help Mexico improve from being a 3rd world nation this would prevent the flood in the first place.

AIDS: Mixed
Again if money was spent on education in general this wouldn't be as big of a problem. I think we need to force the hands of drug companies to truly work on a cure. There is no money in a cure but there is billions in research and treatment. I wonder how many cures have been buried to allow this cash cow to remain.

Stem Cell Research: Mixed
Back to the abortion topic if a heart starts and a human stops it it is murder. If however the progression doesn't reach that point (not by preventing it) then its OK. If they can get stem cells prior to that point what is the difference between a guy releasing in to a sock and that.. A Monty Python skit comes to mind..

I am sure there is more feel free to ask...

Kill your wife, unless shes a dog

SO let me get this straight OJ Simpson makes his wife in to a life size pez dispenser and gets off where Michael Vick lets 2 dogs do what they kinda naturally do and he gets 20 months? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS? It seams the only thing worse then letting dogs fight is the possession of marijuana. Lets break this down:
Murder X 2 = 0 jail time
Dog Fights = 20 Months
Marijuana = 5 Years

Our legal system rocks....

The system doesnt work as designed

The system doesn't work because the system has been thrown off the train. We should dismantle the congress and senate and do away with the governor and president. Not only would this stream line the process to the way it currently works , it would also save the government a ton of money. With this employer sanction law and many other immigration centric laws in the past and with issues on other topics this is the flow: Senate/Congress pass law, stickey laws are left to the people, the people vote to approve often in a resounding majority, law is passed and slated to go in to affect, groups who lost the vote take the law to court and it is done away with by a judge. So lets save a few steps. We fill a small room with guys who create laws and then pass them to a judge to approve or deny. No people as there opinions don't matter. No Governor/President no red tape just the two steps all laws seem to need. Creation, Judges decision. Just because there ase 10 million illegals here doesn't make it ok to be an illegal. There are millions of murders in our country too, do we say screw it there going to happen anyway and make it legal?

Gun Control:2

Ok so last night some other idiot decided to go shooting up churches in Colorado. This time the idiot was stopped and has proven my point made in the prior post. This idiot killed like 4 people at one church and 12 hours later tried again this time an armed guard took him down before he killed again. Now he managed to injure a few people but without that guard putting this idiot down the death toll could have matched or exceeded the mall shooting. They tried to pass a law a while back that said if you prevent someone from carrying a weapon in your establishment (the mall shooting was in an open carry state) then you are responsible for the people. The mall had a sign that said no concealed weapons. They made a decision that caused 8 people their lives. Criminals and idiots dont follow signs, laws or any other rules so basically that sign was an open invitation to criminals to make that happen. I hope the malls management is taken to court and the families sue the piss out of them. I further hope they win and create a president so when some establishment says folks cant defend them selves we will be held responsible when they are killed.

Illegals and Arizonas sanction laws

Come January 1st any employer in Arizona caught with an illegal on their payroll will get heavy fines so companies are making sure that all there employees have all their paperwork in order. This has caused financial impact to many businesses in Arizona. My opinion is you soiled your bed now lay in it. I am a bit mixed. On one hand I say round em up and ship em out on the other hand I am not so sure it is a good idea to create criminals until that happens. You have a group of people who no matter what anyone says have a complete disregard for law and process. You can say they are good people and that may be true. There are allot of good people who are in jail and guilty. They bypassed the legal way to do things. they disregard the law and enter this country illegally. I will not go as far as some and say they are stealing American jobs they do feel a need, Dont believe me? go pick lettuce for minimum wage (no you wouldn't). 2 years ago my car was broken in to by an illegal. They caught him processed him and released him. He did not come to court, the judge ordered restitution and issued a warrant. They caught him again and released him I am out $900 and don't plan on ever seeing it. I think we need to do something to ship the population of illegals out and start with the riff raff who are out breaking in to cars and stealing or any other crime. If you re illegal and break another law poof right out. My issue with the sanctions law is that the illegals who are working are now unemployed and will have to make money another way and what better way than crime. So we need to fix the first epidemic without creating a new one. At the same time I do not have sympathy for all these business owners who are going under because of the law. If you build your house in a forest and lose it in a forest fire you asked for it, If you live in a flood plane or river bed and your house washes away you asked for it. If you live near any large body of water and sit below sea level and your house is destroyed by a flood you asked for it. In you live in tornado alley and your 5th trailer gets destroyed by a tornado (seriously your house is on wheels move) you asked for it. This is the same as these business owners. You built your business on something that contains the word illegal you asked for it. You cant complain when your business is built around the exploitation of illegals. On top of this if you are a business owner who is only willing to follow the law under threat of fine than I don't want to do business with you anyway. I think I will start a list every time I hear a business owner whine I will boycott them. If your business is worth it you will pay a few bucks more and be ok.

NBC WONT AIR IT

This alone should be proof that news networks are biased. NBC will not air a support our troops ad so we need to post it everywhere and tell NBC to stick it

whats wrong with america

You may quote me :)

America is based on elections that are controlled a majority who's political views can fit on a bumper sticker.

More people will vote this year then in past years not because the candidates are better, the GOP and democrats have nothing to offer, this is like the 12th season of American Idol all the talent has dried up so this is what's left. More people will vote for 1 reason to see or stop a first.

The two top democrats are a woman and a black guy. People will turn out in record numbers to see the first black or female president or to prevent it. These people aren't voting for or against the candidates views, they probably have no idea that Obama is really white with make-up or that Hillary is a closer Republican just that they think one is black and one is female(also debatable).

So go out rock the vote and read dammit, know what your voting for. Sadly I usually lean conservative but will likely vote for Obama as the only thing he has lied about is being black.

Well we will see how the primaries go as I am against political parties (another rant later) I am an independent(not the party however that works) I tried to register as an American but apparently that's not OK.... regardless I cant vote in the primaries only real elections....

Gun Control

So some idiot shot up a mall so it is only a matter of time before the gun control idiots pop out and start their crap.

I say 8 people are dead because of gun control.

Let us start by saying this guy didn't legally obtain his gun so no gun control law past, present, or future would have prevented this.

Less gun control could have prevented this. Imagine if half the people in that mall were armed. Sure he could have taken out one or two people but then an armed citizen could have taken him down prior to 8 people. This guy was a lousy shot and spent 20+ rounds to get 8 and had to save one for him self. so potentially a trained armed citizen could have taken him out before he got anyone. Then if he survived we could have made him answer and live his horrible life in a white jacket.. I think every person should be armed and trained when the good guys have more guns than the bad guys the bad guys will think twice.

Guilty?

http://gods-geek.blogspot.com/2007/05/amen.html

I made the above post a few post back and that song echos..

Imagine howmany people dont make it through the front door.
Imagine howmany lost sould remail lost?
WHY?

Because christians can be bad people with so much pride that they wont take the time to forgive.
I think my church does well and anyone who walked in would be accepted as they are but Ive been to so many churches where this wasnt the case. I worked security at a christian confrence where we were forced to escort out homeless people from the sunday service because they lasked the proper atire..

Please If your christian listen to the song and think about your own actions, and if your not christion and have ever been scared away from a church pray and try another, if your ever in arizona come to mine. http://www.faithchurchaz.org

What holds you?


Money
Work
Success

Sundays Coming



“It was Friday; it was Friday and my Jesus was dead on the cross. But that was Friday and Sunday’s comin’!”
“It was Friday and Mary was cryin’ her eyes out. The disciples were runnin’ in every direction, like sheep without a Shepherd, but that was Friday. Sunday’s comin’!”

And so he said the Sermon continued, building in volume and power all the time.

“ It was Friday. The cynics were lookin’ at the world and saying; you can’t change anything. But those cynics didn’t know it was Friday. Sunday’s comin’!”

Tony recorded that that the sermon reached such an excitement that when the preacher delivered the final, “It’s Friday!” the whole congregation roared back, “BUT SUNDAY’S COMIN’!”

That may or may not remind you of your church but the sentiment is universal. We’ve journeyed through Lent to Good Friday and look to the excitement of Easter Day!

Christ has died;
Christ is risen;
Christ will come again!

Sunday’s coming! And that Sunday hope and excitement radiates out of Easter to every day, to our whole lives, to all ages! In a cynical and hurting world it’s hope for the now and for the future!

Thought this deserved a link

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YF1T52WIt20

Wow My mom and dad where in the deaf ministry and signing when I was a kid, We were baptist so the signing was very text book. So imagine you see on tv the evangelist preaching a powerful sermon such as at a revival then imagine you didn't get to see the sermon spoken you simply had to rely on reading it. This is often the way I see how deaf people must get church. I came across the above video of a guy interpreting the song "heart of Worship, and I think If I were deaf and watching I would get it as its meant to be gotten. So watch I think the passion comes thru.

Watch the one above and then this one is as good

Starfield Everything Is Beautiful

So I have been hearing this song on the radio and like most songs I recognize the tune and continue with the thousand and one thoughts in my head, well a week ago god said listen and the words hit me. It seems to be a theme god is reciting. The sermon in church the last few weeks has been on the journey to the cross and there was reflection on Jesus in the garden speaking to god and saying your will be done. The message I think god is sending is I have a plan trust me I am god. So my struggle and prayers have been to give me the power to truly let go and say God no matter what happens or is happening it is your will glory be to you.

Worn out, wasted
Like a bird with broken wings
Sometimes grace reminds me
I don't get to be the king

But love it washes over
Love it pulls me closer
Love it changes everything

Everything is beautiful
Even when the tears are falling
I don't need a miracle to believe
Even in the crashing down
I can hear redemtion calling

And everything is beautiful to me

Sweetly, You release me
From the weight of what I've done
The trigger trips the hammer
But the bullets never come

And love like a landslide
Like the wind
Spins around me pulls me in
At it's unveiling, I begin

Taming a liger

I have started reading a book called "Taming a liger" unexpected spiritual lessons from Napolean Dynamite, by Jeff Dunn and Adam Palmer. In the first chapter the following verse jumped at me
Micha 6:8
He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God?

These are words to live by.

I will let you know how the book turns out

For My Son

Just Think
By Roy Lessin
Just think,
you're here not by chance,
but by God's choosing.
His hand formed you
and made you the person you are.
He compares you to no one else.
You are one of a kind.
You lack nothing
that His grace can't give you.
He has allowed you to be here
at this time in history
to fulfill His special purpose
for this generation.

well done

good song good video

Who are you mistaken for..

I shouldn’t have to tell you who I am
Cause who I am should be speaking for itself
Cause if I am who I want to be
Then who you see won’t even be me
Oh the more and more I disappear
The more and more He becomes clear

Facing The Giants

Facing The Giants

What do you get when you have a bunch of Christians make a low budget movie with no budget, an all volunteer cast and no special effects. Well there are allot of movies who have had more and done less . This movie did have God as an executive producer in my opinion as every other seen was a WOW seen. I say don't rent this movie BUY IT because after seeing it you will likely want to own it. Great movie Awesome message and i think even non Christians may see this movie and find Christ.

Chalk One Up for God

Chalk One Up for God


Gregory Koukl

divider

A certain atheist professor of philosophy had as a primary goal to prove to his students God couldn't exist. At the end of every semester he would say to his class, "Anyone who believes in God is a fool. If God existed, He could stop this piece of chalk from hitting the ground and breaking. Such a simple task to prove that He is God, and yet he can't do it." Then he would drop the chalk and it would shatter into a hundred pieces on the tile floor of the classroom.

If you confront anyone who tries this silly trick, here's how to respond.

Tell the students that you will prove how futile this professor's test is. Have someone stand right in front of you with a piece of chalk and declare that if you really existed in front of them, you could catch the chalk and keep it from hitting the ground and breaking. Then have them drop the chalk and allow it to fall the ground and shatter.

Then say, "I guess this proves I don't exist and that anyone who believes otherwise is a fool. Is this a good test for the existence of God? Of course not. The only thing this professor's exercise proves is that if God does exist, He's not a circus animal that can be teased into jumping through hoops to appease the whim of foolish men.

Eight reasons why Ubuntu is the Linux poster child

Eight reasons why Ubuntu is the Linux poster child

A little plagerism but the guy has it

Eight reasons why Ubuntu is the Linux poster child


1) Its large user base. Because Ubuntu is so popular, it becomes even more popular. This viral marketing was the same thing that made YouTube successful.

2) Hardware support. One of the most common complaints among new Linux users is that their new hardware is not supported by any Linux distribution. Well, with Ubuntu, hardware support is added within days of the hardware coming out.

3) Its ease of use. Lets face it, you can't make a mainstream distribution without ease of use. If you tell a Linux beginner that they will have to type out all their commands into a console, they will have a Windows CD in their disk drive faster then you can say "Open Source".

4) With each new Ubuntu release that comes out, it becomes easier and easier to install. This helps beginners that would normally be frustrated when a cryptic installation error occurs.

5) Its package manager. The package manager in Ubuntu makes finding free Open Source software so easy that even your grandmother could do it. Not only will the package manager download the package for you, but it will also install it for you.

6) Its community. The Ubuntu community is always there to help beginners with any problems that they might encounter on their first Linux experience.

7) The developer support. Ubuntu has shown that support from Open source developers is necessary in order to create a popular and useful, product.

8) Partly because of the package manager, Ubuntu has great media support. From video to music, Ubuntu comes pre-loaded with all the programs you need to watch and listen to your media.

If you don't yet have Ubuntu, you can download it here.

A Return to God

A Return To God

A lawyers story about returning to god after 20 years of being away, I thought this was very good.

Anna-Nichole

On this whole Anna Nichole Smith thing. There use to be a show on HBO or one of those channels called "Dead Mans Gun" The show was set in the old west and there was this fancy Colt Revolver . Anyone who got this gun would have all the power in the world but only for a short time and then they would die. So Anna Nichole Fought hard to get this money she really wasn't entitled to and lived a lifestyle that only someone with unearned wealth would live. This ultimately lead to her death. What now, people who didn't care enough to help her now are fighting for this money and it shall be an endless cycle. The best move is if you care about her child, allocate enough money for her care, and education and give the rest to charity, anything else will probably end up badly.

Chris Rice- Come to jesus



As I battle in my faith and rededicate my life this song really hits me.

For my first post.....

For my first post I will quote a song by casting crowns that says it all:

It's crowded in worship today As she slips in Trying to fade into the faces The girls' teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know Farther than they know CHORUS But if we are the Body Why aren't His arms reaching Why aren't His hands healing Why aren't His words teaching And if we are the Body Why aren't His feet going Why is His love not showing them there is a way There is a way A traveler is far away from home He sheds his coat And quietly sinks into the back row The weight of their judgemental glances tells him that his chances Are better out on the road CHORUS But if we are the Body Why arent His arms reaching Why arent His hands healing Why arent His words teaching And if we are the Body Why arent His feet going Why is His love not showing them there is a way Jesus paid much too high a price For us to pick and choose who should come And we are the Body of Christ Chorus (2x) If we are the body Why arent His arms reaching Why arent His hands healing Why arent His words teaching And if we are the body Why arent His feet going Why is His love not showing them there is a way Jesus is the way
