War on Christianity.

13 Oct

You hear from the Republican party ( who claim to be the party of family and christian values) that there is a war on Christianity. As a Liberal, I will have to agree with them. Anyone who would want programs cut or decimated to help the poor, elderly, children, and disabled are attacking the values and beliefs of a Christian.

Ask yourself this, Who would want such programs defunded or decimated? Take a look at who is writing up these bills to be voted on. It all goes back to those people who claim to be of christian and family values, the republicans. Any chance they get to cut cost on government spending, it’s all programs that help those that Jesus would say need the most help.

Who had the clause to shut down the government if they didn’t get their way? The republicans did this. They get to keep their gym on capital hill open, all the while cancer patients get turned away because there is a partial government shutdown. Republicans are also doing what the terrorists want done to this great country America. They are hurting the economy by shutting down parts of the government, not trying to get laws passed to have corporations send jobs back to America, and ignoring the cry of the poor, all the while helping those who need no help ( filthy rich).

Yes republicans you are right about a war on Christianity, and the republicans are the root cause of the war. Your political beliefs and core values are against all Christian beliefs, look in the mirror when you talk about a war on Christianity.

Hard working Farmers.

24 Aug

Hello, it’s me again with my 4 cents of knowledge. There are two bible verses I am going to put in this blog and then break it down from my side of the green lawn. You do not need to be a christian or religious to see where I am coming from when I break it down.

Here is the first verse PROVERBS 19:24  “Some people are too lazy to put food in their own mouths”. Now there are those who will automatically think of the poor, unemployed, and those on welfare. That’s all we hear today is that people who are poor is because they are lazy and hate work. Like I have said in the past, some of the hardest workers are the factory workers. Most laid off are laid off not from being lazy, but from a poorly mismanaged company or the greed at the top wanting that persons paycheck.

Some of the laziest people I have ever meet in my lifetime are the people with the big homes and big yards. They may have money, but they are “too lazy to put food in their own mouths”. They have people mow their yards, wash their cars, and raise their own kids. They sit behind a desk and have others do their work. All they do is give orders, while the rest is doing all the work. So next time you see a well off person, think to yourself do they feed themselves ( do physical work) or does someone feed them?

One time while I was in the 6th grade, this family that lived close to me was pretty well off in my eyes. They had their own business and had a nice sized home with 4 cars. One day the kid got a flat tire on his bike. The kid went to his father to change the flat tire. The father turned to me and asked if I could change the tire, he said he didn’t know how to fix it. He said he never had to do anything like that before. From that point on in my life, I never assumed that rich people worked hard and that poor people were lazy. Because at that moment I was the poor one and I had to do his work, right in front of his child.

Second Bible verse, PROVERBS 28:19 “A hard-working farmer has plenty to eat. People who waste time will always be poor”. To me the farmer in this verse is a person who knows how to use his hands or has a gift or skill. People who can fix cars, paint homes,build homes,raise food ( chickens or corn), fix appliances, cut hair, cook food, ect…will never ever go hungry. People who waste time are the ones who sit back belch out orders and are considered managers or C.E.O.’s. All they know what to do is scare others into doing work. Granted some of these people know how to do what “hard-working farmers” can do. but a majority have business degrees or inherited the business. They have no skills in the physical part of life, or a trade. Now if the economy falls apart, who will survive? The “hard-working farmers” ( people with a trade or skills), or the ones who wasted time ( giving orders ) ? If you have to survive out in the wild the person with skills will eat all day, while the person who gave orders will starve. Think about it.

Help the poor.

I am going to take a Bible verse from the bible and break it down as to how I see it. There is one word in this verse that gets some people worked up, and This word affects every living person on this planet.

PROVERBS 21:13 If you refuse to listen to the poor, your own cry for help will not be heard.

I will give you one guess as to what word I am talking about…… Have you figured it out yet? The word is POOR. So many people automatically assume this is all about money, financial wealth. Well I disagree whole heartedly.

Poor to me is having less than others, and that we all can agree on. But a person can have all the money in the world and be very poor in so many other parts of his/her life. A homeless money less person  can be very wealthy in other parts of their lives.

Lets take for instance a C.E.O. of a major corporation. This person may be poor in human relations, health, education, the ability to paint a picture or sculpture something out of clay. Maybe they have no way in fixing things because they may be poor in mechanical skills. Just because a person has lots of financial wealth, does not mean they are not poor.

A homeless person who has no money may be wealthy in street knowledge, have a PhD, play the drums, is great with human interaction, or can paint a car to look like a million bucks. This person may also have the best health and lives to be 100 years old, while the C.E.O lives to be 58.

So the poor people do need help. The C.E.O. needs to be taught or educated on how to be wealthy in the rest of his/her life. The homeless person needs help getting back up on their feet. We as grown up adults are all poor in some form or another.

When I talk about helping the poor, some people assume I am talking about giving handouts with cash money. These same people have the mind-set and also have said, “I GOT MINE THEY CAN FIGHT FOR THEIRS”. All I can do is chuckle inside because these people have a one track mind. I feel sorry for people who think like this.

I have also been told I’m all about class warfare because I talk about the poor needing help. People that think like this, to me needs more help then they think.

We can all teach each other about something we are wealthy with. Everyone is poor no matter how much money you have. Think about it.
