A Nation, and a Website, at a Crossroads
I owe y’all an explanation for my recent silence on this website. There are a couple of reasons for the dearth of updates. I’ve been sick, for one reason. Although I still feel pretty lousy, I think (and hope) that I’m on the mend. Another reason for why I haven’t been posting in almost a week is that I’m uncertain how to proceed with what we do here, in the face of what is really going on in this world.
Y’all have read Jelena’s posts about the Shemitah. Some of y’all have or will dismiss the Biblical references to a nation under Judgement as the rantings of someone who has gone off some sort of quasi-religious deep end; and you’ll be wrong. I challenge all of you to take a look at what is happening in the United States, and for those of you who are Christians, I’d like for y’all to ask yourselves how long do y’all think God is going to be patient with a nation that kills millions of innocent children in their wombs every year? How long do y’all think God is going to be patient with a nation that gives preferential treatment to Iran over Israel?
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 5:20-24
The verses above originally applied to Israel. Do y’all think there is no application to the United States today, in those verses?
Years ago, Marty, Tina, and I concluded that we could no longer continue with a pure comedy show, in the face of a drastic change in American political life; so we changed, and moved to politics and news. More recently, Marty and I, in our live shows, added our faith to what we do. I believe that this website is once again at a point of change, and growth in the message that is presented. I’m not sure yet what is going to change, or how…there probably won’t be a major announcement or anything dramatic, but y’all will see the change when I understand fully what I need to do.
I’m still feeling too crappy to burrow into news sites today, but there is something happening that I want y’all to be aware of. There is an event in Washington today, a gathering of Tea Party Patriots and others concerned with our nation’s agreement with Iran. Ted Cruz will be speaking, as will Donald Trump and Glenn Beck. Y’all can watch the Live Stream of the event at Glenn Beck’s website. I’ll be watching and listening, too, starting at 1pm Eastern. Watch, listen, and pray, y’all.
