Free Women

Genesis 2:20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him.

Women everywhere in America now do every type of job there is to do, from teacher to fireman, from doctor to governor, with much success. There has been a massive exodus of women leaving their homes to move into the workplace. Could this be freedom?

Everything that God created has a hierarchy to it, from the angels to any pack of animals. Human beings are not excluded from a God ordained order of headship and submission. What happens in a pack if one of the animals leaves to live on its own? The pack will no longer be able to hunt as efficiently or defend itself. What happens to the animal who has left? If he can survive at all, he is not nearly as safe or well fed. There is no one to watch over him while he sleeps; there is no one to help him take down bigger animals for food. It is a difficult life to say the least.

I believe that this can be applied to what happens when the mother of the house leaves to go work. Obviously, it's not exactly the same, but just as God made pack animals to live in packs, God made women to be helpers to men. Women have an extremely important role to play in the family. Without her the family becomes broken, you cannot raise your children if you are not there, and the husband does not get the many benefits that come from his wife's being able and willing to help him in his role as leader.

All of this comes down to submission. There is protection in submission to authority. Every time God tells a person or persons to submit, he then tells the head (leader or master) to love those under him and to treat them well.

There are many different life applications that can come from an understanding of submission. But these two are what seem to be most lacking in America today.

1. Submission to parents
2. Submission to husbands

My wife and I have come to see that girls need to be protected from the world. And sadly, most parents send their daughters off to college where they can no longer be watched over and cared for. God has clearly made women to be under authority. This is why scripture warns so often to protect and provide for the fatherless and the widows, because they have no protection or provision. Those with fathers or husbands have providers and protectors. If daughters go off to college or into the work force, they are either no longer under authority or they submit to the authority of another. Eph 5:22-24 says, "“Wives, submit to your own husbands." It does not permit for wives to submit to another woman's husband, which is what a woman does in the workplace where her boss is a married man.

Somehow, we have come to think that it is good for our girls to go and live by themselves. But that would leave women without a head, and if anything, the bible teaches that women only leave their fathers because they get married (Genesis 24 and 28, Judges 1:12-13, Exodus 22:17, 1 Samuel 17:25, 18:20-21).

God has convicted us about these things. If you are mad after reading this, search the scriptures for yourself, and see if God does not convict you also.

Obama Love?

Barack Hussein Obama is a socialist. No one knows for sure what drives him, but I believe most socialists have good intentions. People who advocate socialist type views, seem to think love is the reason and the purpose of social programs. I have more than one objection to these views, but the biggest one for me is the stark lack of love.

Jesus commands us to love God and to love others. Doing these two things are the most important parts of Christianity. All of the Bible's laws and teachings hinge on us loving God and our neighbor.

Love is a verb. You must show love. An example of this is the early church. The book of Acts is more or less the history of the church shortly after Christ raises from the dead. Sadly, the church back then looks much different that it does today. Everyone seemed to know by instinct how to love each other.

Giving is not only good for the receiver, but it also greatly (perhaps more so) helps the giver. In the book of 1 Kings, there is a story of Elijah who was God's prophet. God told Elijah to go to Zarephath where he had command a widow to feed Elijah. He went to Zarephath and told to widow to give him food, and the widow explained that she had enough for one more meal for her son and herself, then she was going to die. Elijah tells the widow that God will provide, and she then makes him food first before making food for herself. And indeed God does provide.

The great thing about this story is that God could have used any means to feed Elijah, but because this widow gave, while trusting God, she lived much longer.

Social programs takes love out of the equation by stealing money from those who have plenty, and distributing it to those who can fill out a form and wait in line. This only results in those who are getting their money taken being angry, and those who are getting become lazy and dependent on the government. And worst of all, it prevents God from working in people's lives.

The "Science" of Evolution

What does the theory of evolution have to do with science? Does that sound like an odd question? Well, consider this: Science requires certain things before you may call something science.

For example, miracles. Science will never prove miracles happen. Because in order to qualify to be a "miracle," it must only happen on the extreme side of rare (more cases than not, they only happen once!).

So of course, you cannot do any sort of examination of a miracle, the only way to prove one happened, is to look at the after math of a miracle (ie someone being cured of cancer with out explanation). Even then, it takes faith to believe in such a thing.

So, what does it take for something to qualify as science? There are steps! These steps must be taken, and they are called "the Scientific Method!" This method calls for collecting evidence, creating a hypothesis, forming an experiment, are repeating the experiment 1 billion times... give or take.

Now then, back to evolution. But before I go on, let me explain what I mean by "evolution."
1. New species coming from others species (man from ape)
2. New life coming from nothing (idiocy)

Technically, evolution is not the latter (2), but for our purposes in this post, that's what I mean.

Okay, now to my point. There is little to no evidence of evolution. Many people interpret collected fossils as evidence of evolution, but I say (along with Bible believing scientists) that fossils point to a sudden appearance of all life coming on Earth at the same time!

But perhaps the most important negative for the "hypothesis" of evolution, is there are no experiments that can be repeated to prove or disprove it. Evolution has never been witnessed, and if it did ever happen (and happened also to be witnessed), it's so rare that it cannot be observed over and over again. Therefore, "evolution" must be reclassified as a miracle, which takes faith to believe in!

G'vnmet and Lies

The Obama administration is upset about AIG giving bonuses to executives. Mr. Hussein, aka BO, aka Barry, aka Mr. President, and his administration are the idiots who signed into law that AIG could give these bonuses to whomever. Now they are mad at AIG! Just like when the government told banks to give loans to poor people who couldn't afford them, and when the crap hit the fan, the same government got mad at the banks! Such hypocrisy is unbelievable. They cause the problem, then they want to "fix" it by doing things that will likely cause more harm then good.

Barry's administration said they found out this month (March) that AIG was giving big bonuses to executives. Maybe they should read the bills before they vote, and B "Hussein" O should likewise read them before he signs them into law. I thought George Bush was bad, but this is ridiculous.

A Welcome Statement

I am conservative. I think government is ruining our country. I think republicans have sucked, and will continue to suck, which is why I voted Constitution Party in 2008. I am not sure time exists. If it does, I think God can move through it. I am a bad speller. I believe that global climate change (global warming for you alarmists) was not and is not caused by humans. I believe abortion is wrong. I continue to learn. I believe many other things I will talk about with this web log, such as: it's late, and I'm going to sleep.

G' night,
