Writing of Kevin Poston Series 1:Essays
h2. My name is Kevin Poston and Author of this book. I am a long term brain cancer survivor. Diagnosed in 1992 while I was 11 and in the fifth grade. I have always enjoyed writing to relax and settle my frustration. In the last 6 years I have began study on the bible. Most favorite are the books of wisdom (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes). I choose to write about the events of humanity because of there changes. Changes that have turned steadily away from God. I write about the changing culture, societal decay, mans self-destruction, and the truth. I hope you will enjoy my writings and pass them on. All of my writing is free. Because, the truth should be free.

Our Evil Recompensed by Kevin Poston

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2017 p. Hell is the steal trap that is sprung. The teeth devour what is left of the soul and the mind. Another distant memory soon one wants to forget. A mistake one wants to forget. Tears are to many to count, also the endless nights. Thousands of thoughts that can not resolve the past and its misfortunes. Endless nights that bring thousands of cries of pain. The forgotten murder of a nation. Murder of Innocence and cries they outflow. Their ghosts echos for justice. Their eyes as a roaring flood. Their life untold, and no future to bestow. They cry for justice by the millions. Unheard souls bleeding for sight. They say;” we cried but no one heard”. They say; “the pain was great and not relieved”. They say; “we fell to no notice”. They say; “we spoke, but were mute”. The sure heart of a dead world. The mind of a heartless world. The emptiness of a soulless world. The rock that sets upon the heads. Dirt is all that withholds the body. Sure this is the dead world. It was alive but only a spot. It was only dirt to feed the worms. Heartless world, ye devil and betrayer. Betrayer of fund endeavors and fund futures. Adulthood, ye murderer of fairy tales and dreams. The truth, ye reveal-er of pain and sorrow. Spoiler of happy days and childlike innocence. Years, ye murdering tyrant that holds no compassion. The mind is but a pit of chaos and destruction. Bring the senseful to their knees and make them bow in shame. They shall cry all the tears they did not hear. They shall be mute for all the mute. They shall suffer great pain for those unrelieved. We will suffer what we have sown. There will be no forgiveness. There will be no mercy, or compassion. Who is it that knows the evil we are? Who will recompense the evil? The great avenger of our evil. The one that makes us bow in shame. The one who makes us cry for mercy. The one that knows what we have done. We can not hide from the evil we have partaken. Holding hands with the devil, and smiling before the almighty. Enjoying the world and sure of our fate. A world of fools we are, and we will be. Let us enjoy the pain we deal. Let us enjoy those with tears. Let us enjoy our jolly hell. Inflict upon those with no voice. Starve those with no power. Let us enjoy and behold our hell we have freely received. The hell we have all earned graciously. Graciously, we have throughout centuries. Graciously, we have throughout decades. The torture we have dealt for years, weeks, and days. Let us show the evil that shines. It shines like the sun of a new day. Pierces the eyes of the beholder, and wets the lids. Shall it be in the end, will we not say;” I am clean”. Shall we not say;”I have no fault”. Will we not say;”I have done good”. Trying to hide the evil we have loved and enjoyed. Then shall we say;”I cried and no one listened”. Shall we not say;”no one relieved us of great pain”. We will say;”we have fallen and remained down”. We will say;”we were but mutes”. Will we not beg for mercy. Will we not fall to the ground in shame.

Work, money, and Power by Kevin Poston

August 8, 2015 p. In a world full of heartache and pain; does anyone grasp truth? Their minds are so flooded with pain from the struggles of the day that conceiving reality can seem impossible. Instead of relating their hardships to their own poor choices they blame others. Their mind is fogged by misconceptions of reality. They further worsen their calamity by continuing the lifestyle that caused it. God is the most likely culprit of their demise. If they believe in no God then man is the culprit. Always failing to see that by their own inability to accept their poor life choices, they are destroying themselves. As God is blamed they slip even further into a self-destructive lifestyle. A lifestyle full of more pain which brings depression and anxiety. Working harder and harder at: multiplying their stress and burdens. Freely worshiping Satan, without any intent on doing so. Satan has his hooks in their mind as they destroy themselves with an ideology pushed by the mainstream. More work, money, and power are a convincing argument to perpetual freedom. While they throw away their true freedom in their pursuit. They set their goals on the gain of earthly pleasure which surely will die. As the pain and sorrow increase so does their burdens. So even more; their blame worsens. Turning into violent fits of rage, like a child. Perhaps going so far as to rob, cheat, and murder.

Utopia by Kevin Poston

August 12, 2015 p. 1 If there were any hope for man the ears would be open. Open more than their mouth. The truth would be embraced and not ridiculed. Opinions would be universal and accepted. A man’s word would be binding contract. Reality is the universal appearance that there is no hope. In a utopia the truth would prevail. In the same utopia all orientation would be acceptable. There would be no death or war. No pain or suffering. No being would grow old and die. These are indisputable truths that show there is no utopia. Truths that no man will have his utopia. The man and his consequences end all hope for perfection. Since the human cannot own up to the consequences of his decisions. There is absolutely no hope for humanity. Pride destroys him and wishing for his own utopia that will never be. Facing reality is basically impossible. A man works exhaustively for his vision of perfection. Even forcing others to believe it. Perhaps called leadership or madness. As Jim Jones was a leader and a madman. If any sort of madness dips even partially into his utopia. The outcome may be total insanity. Meaning some men would follow a dog if he fit his minds view. Name any form of perversion and surely there are millions who will follow. For millions may see these perversions as their utopia. If an evil man be smart then give the millions what they want. Add more enticements and gain even more. The disapproval will be overshadowed by the enticements. So, really a population is easily brainwashed. Throw a little dislike in with approvals. Eventually the dis-approvals are not that bad. Soon it is totally approved. Even believed by those who once abhorred it. Everyone is eager for charming words. They are never ready for painful words. Only by the sure grace of God would their minds be opened. Who is truly that righteous? So all words seem vain and worthless. Yet, all good and evil are learned by them. In the presence of books or media. Everything is influenced by words. Though there seems to be no listener. You may never know who your words inspire. The only depressing thought on words are fools have them. Perhaps, a fool’s word goes farther. This goes back to society in a whole refusing painful words. A charming word will be cherished. Even if it be raging madness. Obviously, you speak and hope there are listeners. Seeing foolish words go farther. You speak and suffer the consequences. This surely brings out the inner evil of men. One cannot expect any different. Speaking the truth is at you own dire love. So before speaking, weigh your love for humanity. Yet, also weigh your conscience if you choose not to. Also, choose your words carefully for the Day of Judgment. Whether it is man’s or God’s. For one or the other will come. A wise word wasted, is like nutritious food wasted among the starving. Sweets are delectable to fools, for there is no nutritional value. Our society craves sweets. Surely, the consequences are obvious of that craving. Obvious that is, to the nutritious dieter. The question is how has so many sweets crept into society. Cravings that decades ago would be abomination. A little foolishness here, a little there, and then everywhere. Remember millions will believe anything. That being if it’s slipped in their daily life slowly. With no foundation the house crumbles and gives way. So this is the case and it was never more truly spoken. Call it progression or abomination. What was slipped in is everywhere. Who is the culprit of this progression? Say ye the devil, or say ye we, the wise for lack of fruit. Now it is either hide in fear or speak and be damned. Interpretation and opinion are an evil disease. Being these the reason for man’s exile into the present. It is a disease seeing any opinion will be believed by some damned fool. Also, it will be spread by the same fool. If it be in his favor to enforce it upon the population. This being the case no matter how abominable the opinion may be. So, abomination is spread like an airborne disease. Seemingly much faster than the just opinion. Because it is favorable to the rampant population of fools. The opinion is charming and so pleasant to the body of man. Therefore, popular opinions are more pleasurable than disciplinary ones. Opinion will turn into truth. Truth will turn into opinion. It is obvious this is happening now. A few with similar opinions can change a whole country. Neither facts nor truth have an impact on societal decay. How sad to see your world dying. When truth has no meaning. Abomination rules all things. Also, the day death is eminent for the poor souls. It is in the heart to help your fellow man. When the ears are closed, sorrowful is a wise man’s heart. For we are all men and we all will die as such. There is no hope for mankind. 2 The persistence of man to fill his desires is unquenchable. The lengths which one will go are unimaginable. I have thought long on the evil that may abide in a man’s mind. When abomination is revealed, I am seldom shocked. Man’s minds are the deepest pit imaginable. We are beings with imaginations, and the intellect to make them possible. Almost anything can be achieved by any human mind. So there is no surprise some see themselves as Gods. When others never use their achievements; they are the controlled population. They refuse any form of truth and only the popular opinion. Never studying for themselves to find the truth. Only what is told by the higher authorities. Intrigued by the philosophical writing of man and his bottomless pit. Yet, there should be no surprise to man’s wickedness. If death seems his only option. Surely to the fool this is so. They cannot grasp anything beyond touch. Giving their last breath for any form of gain. His mind being a steal trap. Then there is no hope for him or his kind. Truly, is there any hope for any of us? Any form of self conceived wisdom or righteousness, could be just that. A well devised belief of our own. The belief being nothing joyful to a higher being than we. As I said previously, man’s mind is a bottomless pit. Any form of insanity may arise from it. This is seemingly so to the shallow mind. One who does not ponder the mind of man and creation? One who does not intertwine man and God’s wisdom.

Quality Time by Kevin Poston

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2017 p. A day without quality time in the woods. A day from God’s handy work. A day without a bird’s song. A day without a crow’s caw. A day without a squirrel’s chatter. A day without a woodpecker’s hammer. A day without the goose’s honk. A day without the hawk’s cry. A day without the soft wind through the brush. Is not a quality day at all.

Madness by Kevin Poston

Madness rest in the heart of all men. Solomon spoke of it himself in Ecclesiastes 9:3 “This is an evil in all that is done under the sun: that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead”. Surely this is the case by observation. Who is the man immune to madness. Perhaps hurting others by simple words. Even, worse by brute force. Think of the most psychotic men who ever existed. Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Idi Amin Dada, Pol Pot to name a few. They were once young children, innocent and upright. But given extreme amounts of power and wealth they were psychotic. Who is to say any of us would be different. Who is the brave man that can ponder the deep depths of man’s hearts? Who can say all man’s words are true? This being the case in the eyes of the wise. They would study well all words spoken by man. Especially, if those words meant life or death. You would surely be the greatest fool of them all. Listening to a man, knowing his heart is for certain full of madness. This is a great folly for mankind. It is that they believe but have no foundation to find the truth of it. They are exceedingly as a whirlwind tossed to and fro. Told one thing then another and so forth. With no foundation, no wonder some men become greatly psychotic. No wonder they do choose a mad path. Seeing they have the power and wealth. Why would they not become great psychotics? After all, there mad truth would be as good as another. Without a strong foundation there is no hope. Every man has an opinion and most all differ. Even with a strong foundation they can be misguided. This is a serious matter for mankind. Without many wise advisers a prudent man may be lost also. So some men must be trusted. Though man is evil, some are not as much as others. Some seek the truth and some will tell you the truth. These are my brothers say I! Tell me no matter how harsh the truth may be. Those that constantly flatter are my enemies say I. Leave me be and save your flattery for those tossed to and fro.

Truth by Kevin Poston SUNDAY, JUNE 5, 2016
p.

All men are unique individuals. No one man is the same as the other. Their thoughts and heart are all a new exploration. One man can become angry for small errs. The other with understanding has patience with your errs. Some take jokes seriously and others ignore them. Some listen to your words. Others may ignore them. Some may recognize your words as wisdom. Others may see them as an insult. But seldom ever take it to heart. Those that can be reached are few and in between. Most men see their way as gospel. They refuse that any other form of gospel could be true. Thus this is the dilemma of mankind. Man will never see past what they demand to be true. With a stubborn mind they set their direction to self destruction. This is the beauty of mankind at one point. Yet, a great destruction at the other. If one speaks the truth. The truth will never be heard. Nor, will it be recognized as so. This is especially so for the poor man who speaks truth. ”Even though the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil”. Remember that poor men are publicized only when they have done evil. Poorly publicized at that! But pity be on the evil fool that has great profit. This could be the reason the truth is only spoken to believers. Those with alternate truths clash. Since not one will give. All is hopeless and without triumph. Possibly the reason races, religions, and countries clash. If this is so, then all is truly and utterly futile. Futile for every man who has ever existed.

People have lost all rational thinking by Kevin Poston SUNDAY, JUNE 5, 2016
p.

People have lost all rational thinking. They have lost their ability to decipher right and wrong and good and evil. They have willfully changed the meaning of good to evil and evil to good. Men build their own intelligence to fend away any divine influence. In their own truths their will is explained only as above God’s. This all to suit their needs and justify any willful sin they administer to. They ferociously demand others participate in this willful sin. Changing man’s laws, to suit their needs. In some earthly territories killing those who refuse their man made ideologies. Those that institute their own religious beliefs: to accommodate the needs of a frivolous idea. It is quite easy to recognize a man-made religion. Man-made religions glorify man and their sinful ideologies more than God. Failing to see their way only leads them to a deeper form of misconception of reality. The reality they are mortals which have fallen under the sun for only a moment. They are insignificant in their time here on earth seeing we are all vapor. They perceive that their tiny existence must be for a reason. Even so they foolishly seek the only way that glorifies their selfish ambitions. Their reason is for gain and power that is decaying. Their reason is for pleasure which is fleeting. Seeing all this is merely an attack on reality. The truth is harder to find than any deep concept of God’s wisdom. On earth there is only the profound ideology of a man who considers himself as intelligent. A man who sees himself raised above all other men. Surely this man is evil as his intelligence rises above God’s in self-induced intelligence. This devil controls even the wise man. Though the wise man tells the truth he obliterates it and its whole meaning. Seemingly, evil rains upon this earth and yet those too blind to see still blame the God of light. The creator of all we see and his everlasting word is portrayed to be evil. Portrayed as Evil even by this man who is of true evil, and recognizably so. All of this, to satisfy their hunger seeking abominable appetites. All done to satisfy their conscience: so to remain as evil as they persist.

Convictions by Kevin Poston SUNDAY, JUNE 5, 2016
p.

If a man holds strong to his convictions. In certain social groups he will be despised, and in others praised. So he will stay close to the group that shows him favor. Even if his convictions be true. Thus, he is forced never to spread his truth. Afraid of being ostracized from the community. All humanity has lost any hope of what he knows. Imagine of Christ’s refusal to come to earth. Hope for man would have been lost. The truth never revealed. Revelation never set to light in the mind of millions. Christ was ostracized by the Roman. But, in turn was believed by billions. So all seemed hopeless at that moment. Christ’s word’s and actions became the greatest of all words spoken. The flesh is weak and pain is deterring. Words of fools are dreaded and hateful. Seeing truth diminishing is more painful to the wise than wounds. So, weep in silence or be ostracized.

Abortion: Legal Murder in America by Kevin Poston MONDAY, JUNE 6, 2016
p.

Justice and human rights begin in the womb. Abortion should be held as horrific murder. If you have watched an abortion video you will know why. You will see the parts of a child torn from the womb. It’s tiny pieces of hands, feet, and head are sucked from the womb. Quite clearly it is murder of innocence. Worse of all it is totally legal. Legal murder is happening on a massive scale in the USA. In 2008, approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the US In 2009, the highest number of reported abortions occurred in New York (119,996), Florida (81,918) and Texas (77,630); the fewest occurred in Wyoming (≤20), South Dakota (769) and North Dakota (1,290) (CDC). Look at the horrific statistics yourself at http://www.abort73.com/abortion_fac…/us_abortion_statistics/ According to the statistics unmarried women have the most abortions performed at 85%. Next are those living with a partner and aren’t married at 25%. Nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended; about 4 in 10 of these are terminated by abortion. Twenty-two percent of all U.S. pregnancies end in abortion. (AGI). Only 12% of women included a physical problem with their health among reasons for having an abortion (NAF). One per cent (of aborting women) reported that they were the survivors of rape (NAF) Ninety-six per cent of the more than 140,000 second-trimester abortions performed annually in the USA are accomplished by the technique of dilation and evacuation (D&E) (NAF). Dilation and evacuation is the extremely horrific type of abortion and the one most widely used. Tearing the baby to pieces and extracting them from the womb. Another thought to a person of sense is the doctors. We have people who do these monstrous things on a daily bases. They are walking free in public. Just think if they can rip tiny babies apart what might they do to any other person. These people aren’t doctors they are hired legal murderers and monsters. On January 23, 1973 the Supreme Court passed Roe vs. Wade unanimously. United States Data and Trends,” estimates that there have been 54,559,615 abortions since 1973, 54,559,615 million murders since 1973. Roe vs. Wade opened up a door for sex without consequences. Only for the unborn child who has no say in his murder. I am compelled to speak out for the innocent. Tiny children who have no choice in their ill-fated demise. The aborted child’s only fault with being conceived by an immoral parent, and conceived in an immoral society. The child knows nothing of the Supreme Court. They are born knowing nothing about the law of the land. If concerned citizens do not stand up for them; Who Will?

You say homosexuality is ok. Are you crazy? By Kevin Poston MONDAY, JUNE 6, 2016
p.

The minority that is LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) wants everyone to support their cause and accept them as a legitimate people. The world must be totally crazy. How has people forgotten how disgusting, unnatural, and unhealthy the homosexual lifestyle is. CDC reports that 1 in 5 Gay/Bi Men Have HIV, Nearly Half Don’t Know. Bisexuals conveniently sleep with a man or women so spreading is much easier then to reach into the heterosexual population. In 2010 63% of HIV cases was credited to homosexuals. The unnatural evidence of LGBT is very noticeable. Homosexuals can not produce offspring. If children are adopted then imagine the strain of the Childs mind, having parents of the same sex. Not including there is a link between homosexuals and child molestation. In some reports homosexuals are 5 times more likely to commit child molestation. Homosexuals live unhealthy lifestyles, and have historically accounted for the bulk of syphilis, gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, the “gay bowel syndrome” (which attacks the intestinal tract), tuberculosis and cytomegalovirus. 78% of homosexuals are affected by STDs. Captain William Riddle of the Los Angeles Police says, “30,000 sexually abused children in Los Angeles were victims of homosexuals”. The list keeps going and going. If they can not produce and spread the vast majority of sexually transmitted diseases Even to the heterosexual population, and you ask me to accept homosexuality. I will say “Are you totally crazy?” Also I will never reject Gods law on homosexuality. 2. Leviticus 18:22: ” Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” 3. Leviticus 20:13: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” 10. Romans 1:26-27: “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.” 11. 1 Corinthian 6:9: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.” 12. 1 Timothy 1:9:10: “Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for men stealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;” Gay marriage Genesis 2:22-24Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman, ‘ for she was taken out of man.” For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” Read Matthew 19 | View in parallel | Compare Translations 1 Corinthians 7:1-16Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to marry. But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. I say this as a concession, not as a command. I wish that all men were as I am. But each man has his own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that. Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? Read 1 Corinthians 7 | View in parallel | Compare Translations Ephesians 5:22-23Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.

Read Colossians 3 | View in parallel | Compare Translations Hebrews 13:4-7Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Read Hebrews 13 | View in parallel | Compare Translations Mark 10:6-9“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ’For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”

Two most unconstitutional laws ever set forth by the United States Supreme Court by Kevin Poston MONDAY, JUNE 6, 2016
p.

Engel v. Vital (1962) and Abington School District v. Schempp (1963). First of all let’s look at the first amendment of the United States Constitution. The first amendment says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The amendment clearly Says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. So it clearly states that this is in no way the Government’s affairs. Yet, it was the Supreme Court’s ruling in Engel v. Vital (1962) and Abington School District v. Schempp (1963) to abolish religious worship from schools. So let’s look at exactly what the Supreme Court is. The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the United States. It has ultimate (but largely discretionary) appellate jurisdiction over all federal courts and over state court cases involving issues of federal law, and original jurisdiction over a small range of cases.1 The Court, which meets in the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C., consists of a chief justice and eight associate justices who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate. Once appointed, justices have life tenure unless they resign, retire, or are removed after impeachment. You can clearly see by the defining words “appellate jurisdiction over all federal courts and over State Courts” “involving issues of federal law” “who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate”. So you see that the Supreme Court is indeed federal and the members of the Court are put in place by the government of the United States. But, you may say the first amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. Not the president, senate, or Supreme Court. So let’s look at how the Supreme Court of the United States was established; and by who it was established. Article III, §1, of the Constitution mandates that “[t]he judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish,” When Congress first met on March 4, 1789, one of the first items of business was to fulfill the requirements of Article III, section 1, of the Constitution. Article III, section 1, provides that the “judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.” The First Congress responded by enacting the Judiciary Act of 1789, which established 13 district courts in major cities, three circuit courts, and a Supreme Court comprised of a Chief Justice and five Associate Justices. So this is saying the Supreme Court was established by Congress. Now let’s go back to Amendment 1 of the constitution of the United States that says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” So indeed Engel v. Vital (1962) and Abington School District v. Schempp (1963). Which abolished the free practice of religion in schools was unconstitutional. Because the Supreme Court was established by congress; and congress can make no laws respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Is there anyone else seeing this or is it just me? This being 2012 at the present time. We have been under a totally unconstitutional law for 50 years now. Seeing the morality of the United States dramatically fall.

The Qur’an MONDAY, JUNE 6, 2016
p.

First of all let me say I really don’t see how a follower of the Qur’an could base a holy book based only on one mans account (Muhammad). The continual ramblings of this book, makes it seem that the writer was an avid drug user, which by my own experiences with drug users, they are easily known by there continual ramblings about things that can seem intellectual but actually have no meaning at all, reports say Muhammad would seem to be in a trance of some sort during his receiving’s of revelations from Gabriel. Which further shows it was possibly a drug induced hallucination, and by his continual rambling of text it is very possible. The Qur’an, with continual rambling of basically the same thing over and over in every chapter, with no substance, basically the basis of convert or die ,and uses the bible for its substance and characters which was completed over 500 years before the Qur’an was ever thought of. It distorts all of the bibles teachings. It could no way be a divine doctrine, all received by one man. h2. It advocates the mistreatment of women. Qur’an 4:34. Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all). h2. Sex Objects “In them will be (Maidens), chaste, restraining their glances, whom no man or Jinn before them has touched,” (55:56). “We have created (their Companions) of special creation. And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled), - Beloved (by nature), equal in age,- For the Companions of the Right Hand,” (56:35-38) “Verily for the Righteous there will be a fulfillment of (the heart’s) desires; Gardens enclosed, and grapevines, And voluptuous women of equal age,” (78:31-33). h2. Bigamy If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice,” (4:3). h2. What the bible says about how to treat women Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love [your] wives, and be not bitter against them. Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. h2. The Qur’an says that Jesus is no more than a servant to Allah and the Trinity is not to be talked about, since Allah is one God. Sura 43:59-62 “He was no more than a servant: We granted Our favour to him, and We made him an example to the Children of Israel. And if it were Our Will, We could make angels from amongst you, succeeding each other on the earth. And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way. Let not the Evil One hinder you: for he is to you an enemy avowed.” Sura 4:171 “O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not “Trinity” : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.” h2. What the bible says about Christ Joh 4:25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Joh 4:26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he. Joh 17:1 Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: Joh 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. Joh 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. Joh forth from t16:28 I came he Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. Joh 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Joh 15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also. Joh 14:9 Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Joh 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Joh 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. John 9:35-37. 35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of God?”[e] 36 He answered and said, “Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” 37 And Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him and it is He who is talking with you.” h2. Conclusions on the Qur’an My reading of the Qur’an, and comparing the Qur’an with the bible, (which again was finished over 500 years before Muhammad). Muhammad used his writings to merely sooth his desires (For women, and undesired beliefs in Judeo/Christianity, or paganism, which was prevalent in Mecca). In most Muslim countries, there is no freewill to choose from any other religion. They are pounded with this belief from childhood, without little education, and no contact with the outside world. Why would they force feed it to the people if they had no worries of it not being the true word of god? Those who have the free will to choose, I would urge them to compare this to the bible, which again what I can not stress enough was finished long before Muhammad was even thought of, and then distorted by Muhammad (500 years later) who said he prophesied the whole Qur’an (114 books) in less than 22 years, this all by himself, no other prophets. But, it took 2,000 years to write the 66 books of the bible, and we are given personal accounts of Christ’s life by Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John, which neither contradicted the other. If you have a loved one wanting to pursue the beliefs in the Qur’an, urge them with all your heart, if you truly love them, to rethink their steps and compare the Qur’an to the bible, their only soul depends on it.

Vain by Kevin Poston MONDAY, JULY 4, 2016
p.

What if a man spends many years holding to a truth with no meaning? He suddenly finds he has wasted these many years in vain. His mind was full of trickery. His heart full of false love. Now stricken with grief and depression because his many years were absolutely vain. Starting out then as a child suffering for guidance. Thrown into a misguided world. A world in which society could care less for his outcome. Help is as a needle in a haystack. Even this also applies to an unguided child left alone. The both are the same and both the outcomes shall remain the same. Both will cling to the closest tender guidance, even if it be evil. So, shall the child or the man live more years in vanity. This is catastrophe of enormous proportions. Seeing that the lost eventually will only find more misery, even after finding the past was misguided and depressing. It is a sad misfortune for mankind. They are lost and alone seeking happiness. Yet, finding even more horror with each failed attempt of freedom. This is another serious misfortune for man. That each conceive their own happiness differently. They receive so much joy from deeds, that disgust the next man’s form of happiness. Even, going so far to force it upon the unwanted. So far as trickery or even murder to spread their own ideology. Then when seeing their way is insanity. It is far to strong to turn back. Then with even more misfortune, the man realizes he has damned thousands, or millions of souls. He has committed great abomination to God, that he knows he can not change. He was never showed the truth. Since, he never knew the difference. What can he do? This is a great tragedy to men. Who is to blame? Those that know the truth? Or, is it those that spread evil ideals? The solution to this question will never be known. For, either of these beings search for their prey. Same as the lioness searches for hers. The prey either survives another day to search for truth, or be devoured by foolishness. Seeing as foolishness abounds then will soon be devoured by it. This being the most serious case, set forth before the christian. It is that their speed be of the lion or of the cheetah. Or, the cunning of the fox. Or, the wisdom of the wolf. Their prey is prominently set in action by these abilities. Perhaps, God has given us all these abilities. Yet, some use them for evil. Some for good. But, some are to sluggish to notice either way. But, even faced with the truth most men will be deaf. But, to foolishness the ears are wide and work perfectly. An extremely deep stumbling block to the truthful. Making truth a difficult, lonely, and brutal game. Brutal to the mind, body, and soul of the truthful man. For, the radar a fool has around his brain, is thicker than any brick wall. So, the hunt is difficult and heart breaking. Seeing most will prefer foolishness and block out any form of truth. His truth is his own and pride keeps it that way. “This sore travel God has given to the sons of man to be exercised therein”. This is it, that selling the truth is harder than selling a rock. The shelves of pleasure are clean daily. Perhaps, this could also be the cause of diminishing truth. The truthful give up in despair. Why keep on trying when there are no ears to hear. This is one reason why man is not more careful to fear God. For the fools truth is gold. Perhaps his truth has been gold for centuries. Breaking that truth would mean damnation to all that came before. Those lost while living in his golden truth. This has to be much more than the mortal mind of man to bear. All your friends, family, and loved ones being damned to hell. Also, it is easy to see men choose ease of access. Every invention of man was to make his life easier. So, why face the truth and go back to hardship. When the path they are on leads to more leisure. Why choose the hard path when its man’s nature not to do so?Another great deep hurdle for the truthful.

My reality by Kevin Poston WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2016
p.

Often when l drift into remembrance. I am lost in very fond memories. I ask God to let me stay within. Not returning to supposed reality. What other men conceive as reality. Under their distorted bias. Forcing insanity upon those with minds above the simplicity. Only to rest apart from the worry and destruction. That can never be turned from and their execution insured. Oh, God abstain me from this reality that is chaos. Let me run the Cooper’s woods playing war. Let me sleigh the snow logging roads of Kennedy. Let me shuffle for presents at long lost Christmas again. Spy the star filled sky with my lost love. These are my realities sure and true. Strip my mind as you wish Lord. Let the fools of men call me mad. Let them call me insane, demented, or senile. But I will be glorious in my reality. Lay my body away to waste. Let me slow skate with my girl. Walk the neighborhood roads and fields. Let me see college avenue with my friend once again. For insanity is my peace along in my mind. Along among the tall grass and wild flowers. Through the rocks and caves. Among the ponds and streams that glitter as gold. Caught up within a kiss and tangled without worry. There once more am I. As the earthly cycle I return forever. Were time stops and age ends. The laughs echo in the night and they kick the can. Running into nights darkest shadows and again to moon stricken acreage. Run to the crisp fall night were the goosebumps and wonder abound. Sorry that I will not return. I will kiss you all goodbye as I rage for sweet bliss. No sorrow lasts for you or me. In my reality I will gloriously be.

PATH TO WISDOM BY KEVIN POSTON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2016
p.

Most everyone is unruly when they are young. When I was younger in my teens and twenties I was quite unruly. I did most anything you could imagine to be considered cool at that age. I tried all and any thing that may have been considered fun. In all of this there was never truly satisfaction. In the end I was sick, broke, and still no more intelligent than the alcoholic beverage that caused this. With only vague memories of what occurred I realized I was a simpleton. During alcoholic induced intelligence you are more intelligent than you could ever imagine; In an alcohol induced intelligence you are the greatest fool. I was a great fool that knew much in my own eyes. I was a joke and a mindless madman full of mad babbling. So eventually I turned to God whom I never totally lost grasp of. Since I was raised by a Christian mother and father I turned to the bible. These roots are the importance of not rejecting your children from hearing God’s word. I started with genesis onward and finally reached Proverbs. Something within Proverbs automatically took hold of me. Suddenly I was reading the writings of the wisest man who ever lived. All of the words within Proverbs interested me greatly. Then I came to Ecclesiastes. I was truly astonished by the Ecclesiastes of Solomon. I had felt similar to Solomon’s feelings in the first chapter. “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun”. (Ecclesiastes 1:2-9 KJV)These were the same feelings that I had had for many years. Why did life seem so vane? Why was life the same continuously? Solomon had also sought to please himself with alcohol. “I sought in mine heart to give myself unto wine, yet acquainting mine heart with wisdom; and to lay hold on folly, till I might see what was that good for the sons of men, which they should do under the heaven all the days of their life”. (Ecclesiastes 2:3 KJV) I thought that this was amazing that the wisest man who had ever lived had these same thoughts. I am in no way comparing myself to Solomon and his wisdom. But no one will ever know how much Proverbs and Ecclesiastes influenced my life the moment I read them. I had read earlier in 1 Kings 3 how Solomon had obtained his great wisdom. He had obtained it from God. The last two verses in Ecclesiastes also tales how to keep this wisdom. “ Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil”. (Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 KJV) So in my thoughts I realized if the wisest man who had ever lived had tried all of these man made inventions to please himself while on earth. He had tried them and failed at his attempt for satisfaction on earth with these things so I would not be satisfied as well. So my quest for true wisdom began by Solomon’s last words in Ecclesiastes. “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil”. (Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 KJV) God compels me to seek wisdom not through some divine vision as some may suggest. But God’s voice is heard through his word. The word of God is freely given to all people by way of the Bible. Always remember the words of James “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him”. (James 1:5 KJV)

KEVIN POSTON CANCER SURVIVOR JOURNEY

by Kevin Poston My first remembrance of my migraines was in the 2nd grade on the playground. I was accidentally hit by another classmate, while they were coming off the slide. From there on my headaches became progressively worse. During this time I had a severe nightmare of a pink worm protruding from the wall by my bedroom. I had an extremely high temperature, and had to be put in the bath tub with lots of ice. I know now this was a hallucination from the tumor. By the time I was 11 years old in 5th grade my headaches had become violent. I had an extreme case of a migraine once a week with vomiting. I was visiting the doctor at least once a week. Finally in April of 1992 while in 5th grade, I was leaving for school one morning and had the worse attack I had ever had. While going outside to catch the bus with my brothers on the steps of our house I began vomiting profusely. I was brought back in and put on the couch with a wet rag on my head, shaking, and was blood red. The same day I was taking to our family doctor Dr. Kevin G. Kelly in Russellville Alabama. After he was told what happened he turned out the lights in my patient room and shined a light in my eyes. After the appointment I was scheduled for an MRI in Muscle Shoals Alabama. I didn’t know what an MRI was but I would become very well acquainted with it. When finally my parents received the results of the MRI they were told I had a mass on my brain. I was in the room my parents begin crying and so did I. I really did not know what was wrong I just cried mostly because they did. We were scheduled to go to Children’s Hospital in Birmingham Alabama immediately after that. We arrived at children’s hospital Friday May 1st of 1992 and had to sign in at the emergency room because it was late in the evening. I was immediately put into the ICU unit at children’s with regular doses of steroids to shrink the tumor. I stayed in the unit till Monday the 4th when I had my surgery. I had a 12 hour surgery. When I regained consciousness after my surgery I was on life support. The strangest feeling I will ever know was waking up with a tube in my throat. I could not see well but I could see the nurses around me putting in IVs. I had numerous IVs all over my body. I stayed on life support for an unnamed amount of time because I really had no recognition of time while in ICU. I know I was in ICU for 9 days that is all I can tell you. After a while the nurses came and extracted my life support tube (bad feeling). Shortly after extracting it my lungs collapsed and they had to put the life support back in (worse feeling). For days the nurses had to suck mucus from my lungs with suction. During this time my mother learned it was indeed cancer that I had. The type of tumor was Ependymoma http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ependymoma The doctor that had done the surgery Dr. Lewis Harris told my parents it was the size his fist. After 9 days I left ICU and went into a regular room in children’s. I was in the hospital for 6 weeks had numerous MRIs, Physical and occupational therapy, spinal taps, and sleep studies. I also had to have a feeding tube put in my stomach because I was aspirating my food. I was told I would never eat again, but I became able to eat a couple of months after I went home and the tube was removed. After I was released from Children’s I had to take radiation for 6 weeks 2 times a day. My mother and I stayed at The Ronald McDonald house in Birmingham during my treatments and went home on weekends. I had to have regular MRI scans till I was 21 and then was cut off from children’s because I lost my insurance. School was hard but tolerable, and I went to college a few years at first for general education and then for PC hardware and Software tech. I thank GOD I can hold down a full time job and work as much as I want. My only true disability is my total loss of hearing in my right ear which I lost shortly after surgery. I wear a hearing aid in my left ear. I am a survivor of cancer now going on over 20 years. I account my blessings on GOD who had many wonderful Christians from Eastside church of Christ in Russellville and all over Franklin County praying for me during my time in the hospital. I also owe my life to my wonderful surgeon Dr. Lewis Harris at Children’s and Dr. Kevin G. Kelly for finding my tumor. Being a survivor has not been easy cancer never leaves you. It is in the back of your mind permanently. I have met many wonderful, strong, and beautiful survivors over the years from hospitals such as Children’s Hospital, St Jude’s Hospital, and Cancer Treatment Centers of America. From cancer survivor camps such as: Camp Smile a mile in Alexander city Alabama http://www.campsam.org/ Middle Tennessee Camp Blue bird http://www.campbluebirdnashville.org/ Camp Bluebird at Decatur General http://www.decaturgeneral.org/services/bluebird.php Camp Mak A Dream in Gold Creek Montana http://www.campdream.org/ I have lost a lot of my friends and cried for them but I remember the wonderful memories we had and I wouldn’t trade anything for what has happened to me. I have met some of the strongest people I will ever know. Also my mother is a survivor now and I love her very much. She is a very strong women.

The “Once saved always saved” Lie by Kevin Poston

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2017 This like the unnecessary baptism lie, it is another astonishing belief. A lie set forth by Calvinist. Also, this lie is found in the some Baptist churches, and some protestant churches. They use certain verses of the bible to point to their beliefs.
p.

1Peter 1:23: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” John 5:24: “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” John 6:35-37: Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.” John 10:27-29: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” Romans 5:9: Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. Romans 8:1: There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:35: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? Romans 8:38-39: For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 11:29: For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Hebrews 3:14: For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. 1 John 2:19: They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us. p. But there are clearly verses that show us that one can fall from grace. Examples: p. Galations 5:19-21 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. p. We see that these sinners will not enter the kingdom of heaven. So, if a man who is saved commits these acts and does not repent, and thinking he is once saved always saved. Does this not say he can not enter the kingdom of Heaven. p. ” Then Moses returned to the LORD, and said, “Alas, this people has committed a great sin, and they have made a god of gold for themselves. But now, if You will, forgive their sin-and if not, please blot me out from Your book which You have written!” The LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book. But go now, lead the people where I told you. Behold, My angel shall go before you; nevertheless in the day when I punish, I will punish them for their sin.” Then the LORD smote the people, because of what they did with the calf, which Aaron had made. (Exodus 32:30-35 ) p. See here another example of those that sinned. In turn their names was blotted out of the book of life. God assures these sinners will be punished in the day of Judgement. Once saved always saved was not mentioned here. But, punishment on the day of judgement was. These are the same people who just recently praised God. p. John 8:31,32 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” p. Jesus points out “If you abide in my word, your are my disciples” the only other option is not doing his word and not being a disciple. Therefor those who turn away from the discipleship and sin. Again, without repentance you are not of Christ. p. John 15:1-9 Christ gives the example of the christian who does not bear fruit. The tree is referred to Christ and the vine dresser to God. The branches are referred to us the disciples of Christ. If any are unfruitful or (sinful), they are trimmed away. Cast away and dried and burnt in fire or (hell). Showing that those who stray away from Christ are not “Once saved always saved” but cast into hell. p. 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. p. Paul here clearly states these sinners will not enter into heaven. So the saved who commit one or some of these sins and do not repent and avoid that lifestyle. Will he not go to hell. So how can one be “once saved always saved” p. Revelation 2:22-23 (22) Behold, I am throwing her into a bed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their deeds. (23) And I will kill her children with death. And all the churches will know that I am He Who searches the reins and hearts, and I will give to every one of you according to your works. p. Another example of adultery as Paul spoke above. Unless they repent of this sin they will be thrown into great affliction. These speak of everyone it isn’t excluding those who say they are “once saved always saved”. p. A prime example is the bibles continual calling for need of repentance. Which would be meaningless to even speak of if “once saved always saved” was true. p. Psalm 51 A Prayer of Repentance Why would the Psalmist here have a prayer for repentance if “once saved always saved” was true. p. Luke 17:3 3 So watch yourselves. “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. p. Again what would be the point of repentance in this verse if “once saved always saved was true”. p. Jeremiah 31:19 19 After I strayed, I repented; after I came to understand, I beat my breast. I was ashamed and humiliated because I bore the disgrace of my youth.’ p. Why would Jeremiah, a prophet need to repent if he was “once saved always saved”. p. Luke 17:3,4 3 Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.” p. Why would these brothers need to repent of their sins if they were “once saved always saved”. p. The “once saved always saved” theology is an evil lie. Damning millions of souls. Same as all false preaching straying away from God’s teachings. There is no scriptural relevance for once saved always saved. It is a complete lie, invented by Calvinist. Calvinism which is false teaching made by man.

Baptism is Essential

SUNDAY, JANUARY 15, 2017 I am quit astounded, That people calling themselves a church, would not believe in baptism to be saved. These people clearly totally ignore the bible, or use a self-tailored bible. The new testament clearly states baptism is necessary to enter the kingdom of heaven.
p.

Even Christ himself was baptized in (Luke 3:21-22). p. In (1 Peter 3:21) baptism saves you and gives you a clear conscience toward God. p. (Acts 10:48) Peter ordered baptism for Cornelius’s House. p. (Acts 22:16) Saul (apostle Paul) was baptized. p. (Galatians 3:27) The baptized are clothed with Christ. p. (Luke 3:16) John the baptist baptized with water. John the Baptist also baptized Christ. p. (Mark 16:16) Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. p. (Matthew 28:19-20) Christ commands baptism. p. (Acts 8:36-38) Phillip baptizes the eunuch. p. (Acts 16:31-33) Paul and Silas baptize in prison. p. (Acts 2:38-41) Peter calls crowd to repent and be baptized. p. It is clear within the new testament, one can not be saved without baptism. Furthermore, clearly Christianity without baptism is false doctrine. It clearly teaches contrary to the new testament church. It is clearly ungodly and not of Christ.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2016 I have visited many conservative churches of Christ in my time. All of these churches are different in several ways. One that stands out in all churches that reminds me of the world. This is, others seem they are better than others. Dress showy as to intimidate others who can not dress the same. Refuse all contact with certain individuals, who are less fortunate than they. It seems within the church there are three classes of people. The three that are the same in the worlds view also. An upper class, middle class, and lower class. Also, there are black churches and white churches. Much like the world races are separated into their own ethnic group. But, didn’t the apostle Paul strictly forbid this.
p.

In Galatians 3:26-28 Paul said “26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” p. 1Corinthians 1:10 “10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” p. Philippians 2:3 “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.” p. Also likewise churches in a certain community (perhaps in all communities) lack uniformity. Several churches worship at different times. The lords supper is given differently almost at every church (different times during worship, Given at a specific worship session, some have speech before the lords supper) . So visitors choosing a church, never know what to expect or which church is right; perhaps losing souls. Putting division among those assembles who follow the same gospel teaching. If this is OK then why did the apostle Paul express the importance unity in the church so much. p. 1Corinthians 1:10 above, John 17:20-22 “20 I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will[e] believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:”. p. Philippians 2:1-3”1 Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.” p. 2 Corinthians 13:11 ”11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” p. So, one can ask himself how the world may creep into our churches? Also, how all churches could become unified once again?

The Liberal Church of Christ

By Kevin Poston

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2016 Denominational-ism was started by several men Martin Luther, John Calvin 1483 to 1546, John Wesley 1740, Joseph Smith 1830, George Whitefield 1730s and 1740s. These acts of defiance started the decline of the church. While others believe it grew the church, by gaining members because of new ideas. Since it added beliefs to the church that were ungodly and contrary to new testament teaching. So it was the damnation of millions.In 1765 Robert Sandeman built one of the first churches of Christ in America. Churches of Christ were formed to return to the new testament teaching regarding the church. The church that was described by the apostles in the new testament. The Same church that most of the apostles had been murdered for spreading. This era was called the restoration movement. It was accompanied also by Abner Jones, Elias Smith, James O’Kelly, Rice Haggard, Thomas Campbell, Alexander Campbell, Walter Scott, and Barton W. Stone. But new testament church still had no immunity to ungodly methods splitting into what has come to be known as conservative and liberal churches of Christ. The Conservative church stays faithful to the new testament doctrine of the church. Liberal churches have added UN-scriptural things to their worship. Such as missionary, benevolent and educational organizations to execute the work of the church. Have “educational directors,” “associate ministers,” “youth directors,” and “superintendents” over their human organizations. Seek to get crowds with “youth meetings,” “rallies,” carnal rewards such as trips to Opryland and all kinds of promotions (such as the “bus ministry”). Emphasize society and the physical man by appealing to the carnal nature with “church banquets,” “church kitchens,” “church camps,” “fellowship halls,” and all kinds of parties. Elevate their preachers above the rest of the members by using such titles as “doctor.” Support and operate schools for secular education, beginning with kindergarten and going through schools of higher education. Do much of their work through what they call the “sponsoring church” arrangement – many churches pooling their funds under one elder ship to do a general work all churches are equally related to. Base many of their practices on the silence of the Scriptures, and appeal to the traditions of the past. Expect their preachers to be modern-day “pastors,” running after the members and visiting the hospitals on a regular basis and to be the “head planner” of all their projects and promotions. Have “special singing” in the assembly – different choral groups are invited in to sing. The most recognizable of these works that are not scriptural are youth directors, special trips and bus ministry; Church banquets and Church kitchens inside the church. Parties, fellowship halls, even instruments and choirs. None of these acts are scriptural and are bred off of John Calvin’s 1483 to 1546, John Wesley’s 1740,Joseph Smith’s 1830,George Whitefield’s 1730s and 1740s denomination ideologies. In my community one large liberal church comes to mind. It is North Highlands Church of Christ. These churches may be enjoyable and fun. But there’s a good chance these churches are sending you to hell also.
