Do You Remember He-Man/Voltron/Tranformers/Thundercats/Blackstarr/Go-Bots/Silverhawks

I was reminiscing with a friend, who is about my age, on 80's cartoons. Some we still remembered vividly and others we had to google. You will note above that I listed several  mainstream cartoons and there knock-off counterparts. Not that the knock-off's were bad, but they didn't have the same success. Anyway what I wanted to get to is how looking at these cartoons now they seem so diffrent. Things I didn't pick up on as a kid I see now. As a child it was so easy to be amazed and dazzled by the colors and action. The characters doing amazing things. Now that I am older its hard not to analyze and find the faults in the writing and see how bad some of the animation is, including reuse of footage from old episodes spliced into new ones. To see messages they were trying to feed my mind. Not to say they were bad messages or become some kind of conspiracy theorist, but looking at it now there were definetaly agendas being advanced with some cartoons (I'm looking at you Captain Planet). Its hard not to say man I was so gullable as a child to be hoodwinked into watching these cartoons and begging my parents for the action figures, yes action figures not dolls. In the same way now that I have "grown up" I am amazed at how I used to so easily trust in and beleive without question. How easy it was to be manipulated by the crowd to say this is cool and that is whack. This is how you should talk and how you should dress. Now I can look back and see the flaws in what some of my peers and society told me. The "toys" they want me to buy. The "heroes" they want me to cheer for, and the "villians" they want me to hate. I guess my point is we can't be children forever, so easily amazed. We must advance our knowledge and analyze what we see and what we are being shown.

VISION 11/4/2020

Behold, I woke on Wednesday morning November 4, 2020. I was happy to be blessed by the Most High with another day. I headed out into the world and there was great sorrow for some and great joy for others. I had great joy because I knew how much grace had been shown to me by the Savior, and I thought maybe the others who were happy shared this same feeling and the ones who were sad were that way because they don't know the Savior. I found out that all of their feelings were based off the election of a new king, and nothing to do with blessings that they had received from their Heavenly Father.      I continued on until I came to a sight that amazed me. Their was a crowd of people that wanted to fight each other. They were evenly divided and some had various weapons and wore the armor of their chosen side. There was red and blue and letters and symbols like 'Q' and 'BLM'. None of them said anything that sounded like it came from the Holy Word, they quoted only from th

FAILURE (Personal)

Throughout my life I have had failures. Anyone that saw me try to play basketball, run track, and wrestle in high school can attest that my athletic career was a failure. I took test in school that I should have got an 'A' on if I had studied and applied myself, and the times I didn't prepare and didn't get an 'A' I consider it a failure. Even more so in the academic realm, I never finished my bachelor's degree in Engineering. Just years worth of credits sitting in limbo to remind me of my failure to finish when many people made sacrifices so I could achieve a higher education. As many know I have never been married and have no children, which I also consider to be a failure on my part. Most importantly, in my walk I have committed sins knowing that it separates my from my savior. Doing it in full knowledge of what Jesus did for me. I have been a failure at living the life that he wants me to live. I say these things to let you know that I understand failure

The Great Divide I

  I actually started on this post back in October 2020. It was all over the place, but I just recently looked at it and got it more focused.       So something has been on my heart for a while, and I have finally decided to write down a few words that will hopefully explain some things about my actions. First off let me state unequivocally that I believe in Matthew 5:43-45 (Love your enemies) and Matthew 22:37-40 (Love your neighbors). So if anyone ever needs help, be they stranger, family, friend, or even enemy, you have but to ask.       With that out of the way let me get to what this is about. I wrote a post called Fence Jumping a while back.   Check it out if you get a chance. I tried back then to let people know some things that are going on. Tried to explain why I'm choosing not to be as social of a person these days. I get the sense however that either people don't care or I haven't withdrawn myself enough f
