Worth repeating: God is always the convenient scapegoat

Self-defense is a natural instinct that God bestowed on every living creature planted on planet Earth. While world governments following the United Nations' tyrannical dictates continually try stripping people of their God-given rights, the list is long of the many ministers preaching gun ownership from their pulpits and websites, the likes of Chuck Baldwin, Bradlee Dean, James David Manning, Doug Giles and, yes, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee who was in the pulpit 12 years before entering the political arena.

Yet every time a singular or plural madman wades into a crowd and goes on a killing spree--most of them false-flag con jobs staged by government agencies--the corporate-owned Marxist media pundits go ballistic and smugly corner Christian-leaning gun advocates and pose the question to them: "How could God possibly allow this to happen?", as though God had everything to do with these bloody slaughters that are purported to be beyond human control.

Who are these morons the media hires to hide behind the scenes writing questions for these dimwits on the front lines? I swear, if I were the interviewer with my face to the camera, I'd be too embarrassed to ask some of those dumb questions scripted by others. Why don't the show hosts think about writing their own scripts?

Humans--not God--were responsible for those mass killings, and you don't have to look any further than to your own government and politicians.

The reason God gave mankind brains before planting the species on Earth was they could think for themselves; he gave them a conscience that can be nurtured and cultivated to know right from wrong.

"Thou shall not murder" is a Ten Commandment imperative against unlawful killing of another human. Doesn't anybody pay any attention to the Bible any more?

Some people do abide by the Bible despite the fact our own governments under the United Nations' mandate are subtly deeming the Christian Bible, as well as guns, unlawful and are categorizing anybody who owns one or the other as "mentally ill".

A soldier back home from fighting a war not of his doings can expect badge-bearing thugocrats to confiscate his government-issued gun and be thrown in a mental ward against his will by these government-costumed goons who don't hold a court order or search warrant to carry out their malfeasance.

Likewise, anybody who smokes tobacco, drinks alcohol, mourns the loss of a loved one "too long" or believes in the values of the family unit are also categorized as "mentally ill".

Mankind is responsible for its own doings; God is simply on alert to pick up the pieces when a person loses his way and needs and asks for guidance in how to be a good person and carry out the tenets of the Golden Rule and the Commandments.

After these tragedies occur where does everybody in the community go for solace, regardless of whether they harbor religious beliefs or not?

The church. Instead of waiting to call on God in an emergency at the "back door", maybe people should think about letting God into their lives through the "front door" so they already have some type of spiritual communication with Him before the bad crap happens...and it is going to happen because the government and globalists are going to make sure of that fact.

But interviewers--many of them anti-Christ, anti-gun presstitutes, who are puppeteered by corporate masters and scriptwriters--always try to pull a big ‘gotcha' on the interviewees.

‘How could you possibly like such an evil God?' they ask.

Sorry, buds, my God is not evil, and this anti-Christian attitude didn't work in 2001 with evangelist Anne Graham Lotz nor more recently with former pastor Michael Huckabee.

Both nailed the subject of what is wrong with today's society square on the head. But the pressitutes, who may all be atheists or puppets, just don't

sound like they catch on.

First, however, all the politicians and bureaucrats are yammering about gun-control to the point they think every last gun in the U.S., Canada, Australia, UK and the European countries is possible to eliminate. Yet these countries are not about to take guns away from their militaries and thugocrat police forces while their government agencies feed guns and money to rebel groups around the world.

Do you really want to live defenseless under a totalitarian regime in which only the police and military are allowed arms?

I don't think so.

Yet nobody in the political, anti-gun arena ever mentions that governments should stop issuing weapons to 18-year-old youth who serve in the military overseas, killing, killing, killing in foreign countries they've never heard until they were deployed there, and where innocent babies, children, women, men, elders are rounded up and exterminated or caught in the cross-fire.

The locals are out of sight and thought of back home as valueless "collateral damage", a disgusting term former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Company used quite liberally without displaying an ounce of emotion or remorse for his kindred kind? Our immoral, indecent, body-guarded politicians and gun-grabbers are hypocrites of the first order, operating on double standards–if they have any standards at all.

And we wonder why the younger generations have morally degenerated when they are using these sleazy adult thugs sitting in high places as their role models.

Former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, himself a pastor before entering politics, attributed the December 14, 2012 massacre in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut to the lack of God and religion in public schools. Addressing the tragedy on Fox News, Huckabee dismissed calls for stricter gun control and claimed that future violence can be prevented by solving matters of "the heart" and turning to God.

"Ultimately, you can take away every gun in America and somebody will use a bomb. When somebody has an intent to do incredible damage,

they're going to find a way to do it… People will want to pass new laws, but unless you change people's hearts, they're our transition to the pastor side. This is a heart issue...laws don't change this kind of thing."

Inevitably after these tragedies, the question arises to the essence: "how could anybody possibly love a God who let this happen?"

"We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we've systematically removed God from our schools," said Mr. Huckabee. "Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage because we've made it a place where we don't want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability?

"That we're not just going to have to be accountable to the police, if they catch us. But one day, we will stand before a Holy God in judgment. If we don't believe that, then we don't fear that."

Now, that brings us to evangelist Anne Graham Lotz whose "Food for Thought" words were truthful, profound, insightful and honest when interviewed on the CBS Early Show shortly after the 9-11, 2001 attacks on America.

Of course, TV show host Jane Clayson couldn't refrain from asking Ms. Lotz: "How could God let something like this happen?"

"I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?

"In light of recent events…terrorist attacks, school shootings, etc., I think it started when Madalyn Murray O'Hair complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

"Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school … the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbour as yourself. And we said OK. (Note: staunch atheist activist O'Hair is notorious for the Murray v. Curlett lawsuit, which led to the Supreme Court of the U.S. ruling that ended official Bible-reading in American public schools in 1963. O'Hair was murdered in 1995, her mutilated body found in 2001 shortly before 9-11.

"Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem . We said an expert should know what he's talking about.

"And we said OK. (Note: Dr. Spock's grandson committed suicide.)

"Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. The school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when he or she misbehaves because we don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued. And we said OK. (despite the fact there's a big difference between disciplining, touching, beating, smacking, humiliating, kicking, etc.).

"Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won't even have to tell their parents. "And we said OK.

"Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they're going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms they want so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won't have to tell their parents they got them at school.

"And we said OK.

"Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs. Agreeing with them, we said it doesn't matter to me what anyone, including the President, does in private as long as I have a job and the economy is good.

"Then someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude women and call it wholesome, down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of the female body.

"And we said OK.

"And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and published pictures of nude children and then further again by making them available on the Internet.

"And we said OK; they're entitled to free speech.

"Then the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies that promote profanity, violence, and illicit sex. Let's record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes. And we said it's just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead.

"Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

"Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.

"I think it has a great deal to do with ‘we reap what we sow'.

"Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.

"Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

"Funny how you can send ‘jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

"Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

"Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

"Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

"Are you laughing?

"Are you thinking?"

Well, if you're not thinking by now, after hearing from Mr. Huckabee and Ms. Lotz, maybe it's time to think about starting to think! ESR
