About Me Links
my readings ready for this Sunday, all of them and even a homily or sermon, as
some of you call it. But it just didn’t feel right, so I was led to write the
following reflection instead, which is revised from an earlier one I had
poem, “The Road Not Taken” – Robert Frost concludes, “Two roads diverged in a
wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the
us, it seems, have made choices at the crossroads of our lives. The choice of
schools, jobs, marriage partners, politics, friends, children, lifestyle,
favorite websites, and faith expression. Maybe some of those choices we wish we
could change. We cannot change all past choices. However, we can have some
control over future ones. When we, as individuals and as a people, have faced
decisions where human reason seemed so “reasonable” and God’s wisdom seemed so
ineffective and even foolish, we have not always chosen God’s way.
quite apparent to me, that we as a country have come upon a very disbursing
crossroad at this particular time in our lives. The moral fiber of our identity
as Christians and as Christian citizens, and even any kind of law abiding
citizen, is being threaten by the very people we have elected to serve us as
our leaders. We, the citizens of this country are being betrayed by a
government administration who seems to want to crush Christianity and take God
out of it and our lives, so that it can control almost every aspect of our
living, and to cram a heal care reform (whatever they call it) down our throats,
a bill that this country cannot afford, that will lead us to bankruptcy; and do
that with bribes, illegal deals, unconstitutional and criminal ways.
top that off, to embrace those things that are not of God; to make laws that do
not coexist with God’s commandments. It is indeed scary and we must stand tall
to regain who we are, for the sake of our children and grandchildren, or they
will have no rights as an American citizens. We should be concerned about the
agenda of this administration, that seeks to pull away from the morals and
values that make up the fiber of our Constitution. We should be very concerned.
Some will say that no rights have been taken away from us, and though, at this
time, we still do maintain our rights, the removal of them is in progress.
back in time many years ago when I was so very young. Our country was involved
in a war, but it was called a “conflict.” Still yet, to those who fought, it was
a war, and to those who fought and died, it was for the cause so that our great
nation could remain free. Yes, it was hard to see so many soldiers killed in
Vietnam and also badly injured, but we knew, that it was the price that had to
be paid in order for us to remain a free nation, under God, with liberty and
justice for all. Oh the government leaders at that time seemed to have had
different reasons for us being there; yes, money, oil, power, and greed, but we
knew in our hearts what our reason for being there was.
like we know in our hearts why all those who paid the ultimate price in all the
wars before us, our fathers, grand fathers, great grand fathers, and on down the
line, to that time when our country’s young men (and women if that was the case)
first fought for the right to exist as a free country in this world, and thus
founded this America, this United States of America. We were founded this
Christian nation, and nothing less, and we are still that Christian nation yet
today, though we embrace all faiths who are genuine and God loving people. And
yet, the leaders of our country now seem to have lost sight of what we are
about, and have and continued to pursue us in a different direction, far away
from what our founding fathers fought and died for this country to be, certainly
not on the very slow but effective progressive and destructive road that we are
being led to today.
very concerned we should be of the course and direction that our leadership is
taking us now. As if all of those who paid the ultimate price, all of those who
incurred disabling injuries, were for naught. And even yet today, men and women
are defending our country for the very same reasons that we did in the past.
fought and still are fight for the rights of the people of this country, not for
a government administration. We pledge our allegiance to our flag not to a
President. Our troops who are fighting now are fighting for the right for life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness just as we did back then. Not for the
happiness of our misguided leaders of today, but for those who still see our
once great country as united under the banner of those Christian morals and
values of days long past. God and country can never be separated, for who we are
as a country in deeply rooted in Him. It is not rooted in anything else, not the
whims of government leadership that defies God by promoting the taking of unborn
lives, and using our tax dollars to do that also around the world; that seeks
to change our Constitution, or even yet get rid of it. No one government, no one
person has such authority to do that, and the real America citizens of this
country will not let that happen.
are led by government leaders who, by there actions or lack thereof, seem to be
self seeking, self serving, money hungry, corrupt, and paid off by special
interest groups, and seem to lack any moral foundation at all. That is not to
say that all of our leaders are, but certainly those who have the strongest
vote. As I watch the laws being drawn up to be passed day after day, I see
these laws as to lead us toward a third world country, and though it makes me
feel like throwing up, I am certainly not going to give up, as are so many
millions of faithful American citizens all across this great land. I see a weak
and despicable government leadership that has completely abandoned the American
way of life, our flag, and the rights of every American citizen. And I ask
myself many times, “How can one people be so corrupt and immoral, that it even
fears those who are of the weakest link in our society?” What a complete turn
around in the opposite direction of what this country stood for and is suppose
to stand for today. What a mess!
leadership in our government cannot redefine marriage as to suit their notions
or that of a gay rights community, despite the amount of money and pressure that
is being paid to them. God defined marriage when He created the first man and
woman, as a union that was of a man and woman, a spiritual union with the
privilege of being co-creators with God of human life. No one has a right to
change what God has created to be. Even though state judges in various states
are catering to such a change of law because they fear the outcry of a
homosexual community. You cannot undo what God has done, without facing His
justifiable wrath upon you, no matter how large or how much money you have.
These are not rights that our soldiers have fought and died for. They are the
whims of morally decayed government leaders, elected to the national and state
level of this country, for the sole purpose of serving the people, and not just
a minority group.
have an administration who calls citizens who disagree with it ideology, agenda,
or ridiculous pursuits, extremists and terrorists, teabags;
who no longer listen to the will of the people that they were elected to serve.
How much more self serving could that be? A government who wants to dictate, not
seek the peoples voice; a government that wants of be in control of all aspects
of the lives of it’s citizens; who wants to suppress us and make us completely
dependent on a government health care, energy, climate, industry,
transportation, and not only dependent, but submissive to it; a government
whose purpose is not rooted in the laws of God. We are most certainly be led
down a very different road than what it should be. And no matter what we say or
do, they will not, the refuse to listen to the voice of the people, to our
now, more than ever, it a time for us to pray that Christ will strengthen us to
follow God’s lead at our crossroads. Let us pray that this be the course that we
stay, that political correctness, politics, and the agenda of our leaders, and
that of special interest groups be null and void; that we continue to be one
nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, and the
pursuit of happiness as defined in our Constitution.
of this, we realize that while we are on this earth, we have not “arrived” at
out final destination. For now, it is our lot in life to “travel hopefully,”
trusting that as we meet Jesus along the way, we will take him in with an open
heart and be nourished for the next leg of our pilgrimage.
when we are at the final crossroad leading to eternal life and we can believe
without seeing, we can say: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – well, I took
the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
not my intention to offend any one person, but the survival of our country is at
stake, or we might very well become submissive to a third world order with no
rights at all.
you and God bless all of us and our country.
Note: I will do everything I can to
get this into a voice format, put on Facebook, and on U-tube (if I am able.)
You may have to come and bail me out of jail. God bless.

the power that you were born with (and the power that may soon
be taken away) and circulate this message to as many people as
