9-23-19 Red Flags

The typical liberal response to every mass shooting is more gun control, or even confiscation, which ends up punishing law-abiding gun owners. This makes liberals think that they are doing something about the problem. Plus, I think they rather enjoy punishing 2nd amendment conservatives.

I see red flags concerning red flag gun laws. Certainly we should try to keep guns out of the hands of mentally unstable people, especially those who are threatening violence against themselves or others, but who gets to decide that? Many liberals believe that Trump supporters are mentally off. Get the picture? As a gun owner and NRA member, I’m considered a terrorists by San Francisco values. National red flag laws could be subject to abuse by politically motivated officials. From what I’ve seen of the Democrat presidential candidates, I don’t trust any of them to protect my 2nd amendment rights.

What can be done about potentially dangerous people? Well, discernment is needed. Madonna threatened to blow up the White House, but no one takes that seriously; she’s just a celebrity loudmouth. Family members have the primary responsibility. They must keep guns away from a troubled family member and try to get them some help. There are legal procedures in place for intervention. The police cannot arrest and charge people with the suspicion that they might commit a crime. We obviously don’t want a State like that.

Many conservatives (right or wrong) believe that any concession to the anti-gun lobby is a step toward losing their 2nd amendment rights. They might be right.

9-16-19 The Cost

Two high-profile Christian leaders have publicly renounced their faith. It’s sad, but not surprising, especially when you consider what Jesus said about discipleship. Faith must be tested and proven.

Jesus taught in the parable of the sower (Matt. 13) that not everyone who starts will finish. Some will fall victim to tribulation, persecution, the deceitfulness of riches, and the cares of this world. This usually happens before the person reaches ministry level, but not always.

In the parable of the dragnet (same chapter), we learn that the gospel net catches all kinds that must be sorted out later. I remember seining for minnow bait with my uncle in Crane Creek. We would catch all kinds of things, sometimes snakes.

Perhaps instead of our modern manipulation tactics for soul winning, we should warn people about the cost of following Christ. The good news of the Gospel also includes the bad news. The world may not like you very much. If you can’t bear that, don’t start.

Jesus said about one of His greatest evangelist right after conversion in Acts 9:16, “I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.” Christians around the world understand this; we in America are beginning to.

It may not be over for these two deserters. They may yet call upon the name of the Lord and experience genuine salvation. John Wesley was an unsaved minister for years until the day he cried out to God and was born again.

happy couple9-9-19 Wedding

I’m happy to announce that Jonnathan Moses and Danae Henry, with the blessing of their parents and family, plan to wed in Spokane, Washington on September 21st with their brother-in-law Reverend Jonathan Stairs officiating.

Jonnathan is from Venezuela and came to the States on a baseball scholarship; both the Yankees and the Orioles were scouting him. He didn’t find a career in baseball, but he did find the Lord through the ministry of Christian athletes and now a wife. Danae was scouting him, too, and got the contract. God had an even better plan.

Both work full-time and are active members of their church. They will live in Spokane where Jonnathan plans to finish his degree in business. They would like to have a baby Moses in a few years.

9-2-19 Voting

Someone recently didn’t think that I was a very good Christian because of my support for President Trump. In fact, they even went so far as to say that I would stand in judgment before God for supporting him. I’m not too worried about it (maybe other things, but not that). As far as I can tell, the Bible only requires that we honor and pray for those in authority, and I’ve tried to do that (I Tim 2:1-3).

Listen, if you can’t in good conscience as a Christian vote for Donald Trump, fine. I can respect that, if you’ve carefully thought it through. I might have a different perspective on it, and I hope you can respect that.

As a voter, you have to decide what your priority issues are and which ones are deal-breakers. Personally, I could never vote for a pro-abortion candidate, which means that I can’t vote Democrat, because unrestricted abortion is a major plank of the party. Tax-and-spend and foreign policy issues are not deal-breakers, although I have strong opinions on them.

If you don’t find the two major candidates acceptable, then you can either vote for a lesser candidate, write someone in, or not vote at all. As salt-and-light Christians, I think we should try to participate in our government so it will function in an orderly, God ordained way. We should all keep in mind that God can bless and use people with whom I disagree.

Actually, I’m liking President Trump more and more. Yes, he’s crude and rude at times (the press deserves it), but that’s minor compared to the major issues he’s taking on. Former presidents did little or nothing about the immigration mess, trade deficits, China cheating, NATO freeloaders, energy dependence, nukes in North Korea, etc. Trump is taking on these tough issues, plus he’s pro-life, pro-Israel, and pro-America. He’s like the brilliant doctor with a bad bedside manner. I’ll take him over the alternative any day.
