Tips for Staying out of Hell

Keep the commandments and that really includes not killing anyone for any reason.  I guess if someone forces your hand by physically attacking you or yours first, God will judge accordingly.

Someone once said “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” but I don’t really think planning something good and not acting on it would get you damned for all eternity.  I’ve known lots of lazy people and I don’t equate not having gumption or passion as evil.  I tend to believe that planning something evil you never act on would be more apt to send your soul to hell, Biblically speaking.  Now look at all the evil intent acted on.  Special hot seat for that, I would think.

Jesus said that if you loved Him you would keep His commandments of loving God and loving one another.  There is nothing about our current culture in America that shows there is any keeping of these commandments, especially the first one.  Even most comments you see on social media say “God is dead” and that rumor was started back in the 1960’s by someone on drugs, so you know it must be true! (Sarcasm)

As long as some nitwit says God is dead, then lets just do whatever we want for the moment that makes us feel good!  Lets just act on every animal urge we have!  Oh wait, that might not work out in a society with other people that are doing the same thing and we all think differently.  This is why we have always had specific social mores that were accepted as the norm and practiced by all in any civilized society.  If you thought differently and acted on it, you kept it hidden.  In the closet was the term some used, and for good reason.  Even if you had unnatural urges or desires that you refused to ignore, you did care about your standing in the community as well as caring about offending and alienating others.  Now not only do these hypocritical bullies not care who they offend, but do it deliberately getting laws passed to protect their assaults and offenses to others in the name of their biased freedoms while at the same time denying anyone else their rights.

I believe the biggest example of perversion in our American society is the mass slaughter of the unborn by mothers with obviously no maternal instincts.  Drugs and alcohol destroy the brain and other organs, and sadly many of the women that get legal abortions are party girls.  I know this because I know many that have done this.  A number of them used to use legal abortions as birth control and there was never any limits or deterrents to this kind of behavior, which is very sad for the women involved and their unborn.  How low is a society that encourages and promotes any woman to be their worst as a human being?  Supporting someone in their sin is not helping them, except to indeed go further down a slope of self-hatred and complete inner destruction to where some of these women had to live out the rest of their days higher than a kite just to live with themselves after what their society let them do.

Just to save money on welfare the government spreads the liberal propaganda that this form of murder is “legal” in their eyes so it’s one of your “freedoms” or “rights.”  I have seen first hand the horror and destruction of having “freedom” to end your own child’s life.

Abortion is the biggest lie and biggest sin in America today and I’m not even going to get into the statistics of the poor little victims with no voice of their own and what they could have contributed to our world had they been allowed to live.

BAN ABORTIONS!

 

 

 

Battle in Your Mind

When I was younger I never really thought about all the much used phrases in our society.  But “battle” with drugs and alcohol has been thrown around a lot lately.  CarolYoungFace

I never thought about just how deceptive that comment is.  You can say people that desire to do or have something that is not good for them and cannot seem to achieve control over their “urges” are struggling of course, but there is something to be said about the word “battle“.  You should always be the victor or maybe you just want to do it?

What is an actual battle?  It is a fight, usually a violent one.  We all need to reach the point that any thought such as taking drugs or sleeping with another’s spouse is so insane to us, those thoughts will cease and desist!  I don’t even have fleeting thoughts such as those because I was raised to believe that certain things are bad and bad people go to hell, simply put, and it worked for me.  I think this has helped me immensely to be the kind of person you can trust and I wish more people were like me.  I actually like myself and don’t want to escape from me or my life even though it’s never been an easy life to live.

There are sayings such as “don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing.”  This has to do with warning someone else not to mess with you or it could get ugly.  If you are about to do battle with yourself, why wouldn’t you give yourself the same heads-up?  Why would someone want to do anything that feels good for the moment, when in their own minds they know just how ugly it can get.

Many years ago most decent people were raised in the Word.  People complain a lot about religion controlling us, but it looks like it has to.  People used to teach their children self-control, self-discipline and respect.  People that cannot control themselves are a danger to themselves and others.  I sometimes wonder how many truly mentally ill people there are or are they just selfish and either don’t know how to or don’t desire to control themselves.

The 1960’s started the hedonistic “if it feels good, do it” mentality but if you don’t know how to control your inner demons, be sure they will control you.  They will win that battle in the mind.  You need to have matter over mind in the fact that everyone has thoughts, ideas and urges, but most never act on them because they have the ability to think further than the moment.  Yes you can be tempted by someone into adultery, getting high or even an act of rage if you are in that circumstance for the moment.  What you need to do is prepare for battles as anyone planning to win does.

You know your weaknesses and people you shouldn’t be around so stay away from these and them!  Battle’s half won.  Now get your fanny moving to living the life you really want to live, within reason, not falling back on something to make you feel better for the moment.  Now on that line of thinking, if you want to fall back on anything, you need to fall on God!  He can and will get you through everything as long as you know it to be true.  There is a rock hard strength in true faith and for most, religion is a big part of this.  It’s good training for your mind.

Not the traditions or symbols of so many of them, but the teachings of Christ to love one another.  That’s all the religious teaching we need.  To somehow get the point across to others, deep in their souls, that you would never do something to someone that you would not want done to yourself or a loved one.  This means that you would not risk harming yourself for a temporary cheap thrill.

If the entire world would become kinder and gentler there would fewer reasons for people to try to cover up their hurt with food, sex, drugs, etc.

Believe to be part of the solution as a child of God.

Filling Our Voids

Why does emptiness seem to be the human condition?  Why are we born so needy and so hard to satisfy?

Why do most never seem to achieve happiness in anything they do or in their relationships?

I would say this is a sign of some deficiency or mental condition except that it is far too common and I believe man has always been this way.

Most try to fill their voids with romantic love or sex, food, drugs, excitement or whatever they desire to feel good for the moment.  It appears no matter how much we are educated to the facts of just how dangerous our addictions and habits are, we refuse to stop always searching for our nirvana.

I just find it odd that we are created so differently from how we were obviously meant to live.  Is our civilization so perverse from the actual nature of man because the people in charge demand our lives to perform difficult, sometimes meaningless tasks, for their benefit and personal gain or are we all missing the point of the meaning of life?

The fact that we are not here for our personal desires, but to be used as the tools we are to help others and to serve our short purpose for the good of all and glory of God, not for the personal gain of any man.
