I’m not sure

The title of this blog is “I’m not sure” which has nothing to do about God or my spiritual life. I am great on those two things as well as family and ministry. What I am not sure about is just about everything else.


I have always placed value in how words are used. This blog is not about being politically correct as I made up my mind a long time ago I would be Biblically correct. That in itself is not politically correct and I make no apology.

Let me make this very clear for all. The problems we have today are as Jason Whitlock recently said are satanic. He is right and that is because we are living in the end times, as we often say. That end time leads to Christ return for His church. A great tribulation of 7 years. A major war followed by a 1,000 year reign on earth of Jesus. Then a final battle in which Satan will be bound and cast into hell with his followers “forever”. Eternally, which by definition is the quality or state of being eternal, and thus an infinite duration. So everyone has an eternity. The decision as to where it will be spent is had here on earth in our life time. Accept Jesus Christ and eternity is in Heaven. Do not accept Him and eternity is in hell.


Considering this world with a Biblical view point, it is simple to conclude that things have always been bad for somebody. Individually, regionally, nationally even worldwide, remember the flood? So with this in mind how are we supposed to process what we see and hear? How are we to get past the time when I’m not sure? The answer is faith and trust. Not in ourselves and certainly not our government. The faith and trust will only be found in Jesus Christ.

Here is simple observation. If everyone were a Christian, most if not all of the problems we see would go away. You noted that I said most, why? Because then we would still have to deal with people and as you may have already noted even Christians don’t get it right all the time. Man is still, and this side of glory, always going to have a sin nature. You sin, I sin, we all sin because it is who we are. We are the product of the original sin committed in the garden by Adam and Eve, sad but true.


I’m not sure why we keep doing the same thing expecting a different outcome. I’m not sure why leaders make the decisions they make. Maybe they know something I don’t that would change my view. That is always possible for any of us. I’m not sure why people want to fundamentally change these United States into what can be seen historically and even in today’s world as failed countries.


It will be stated often these days that the United States is the greatest nation and civilization to have ever inhabited this earth. That may be true and it was founded upon a desire for repetitious freedom and faith in God Almighty. We are all free because of those founding reasons. We all have a Constitution and a Bill Rights to protect us and to live by which is why since the beginning.


Neil Diamond says it best in ‘“Coming to America”-


On the boats and on the planes

They're coming to America

Never looking back again,

They're coming to America


The song continues with these words-


Everywhere around the world

They're coming to America

Ev'ry time that flag's unfurled

They're coming to America


Got a dream to take them there

They're coming to America

Got a dream they've come to share

They're coming to America


They're coming to America

They're coming to America

They're coming to America

They're coming to America

Today, Today


So, today let us hold true who we are as a country and as Christians share the love of God with all. In the last part of Joshua 24:15, after reminding them they have to make a decision about God and the worship of Him. They can choose Him or the gods of previous generations. Joshua declares “As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD!”. Elaine and I stand with Joshua “As for our house, we will serve the LORD!”


In God’s Grace,
