The Devil's Advocate I



Image result for the devil's advocate


Recently I was told that people don't really know where I stand on many issues. They say I play "Devil's Advocate" too much, and its a fair criticism because I do. Why do I do it, because people rarely think and I am trying to get them to actually engage and expand their minds. My true thoughts and feelings can get lost in that process though and I thought I would share a brief simple rundown of my stance on a few things and people. I will of course take all comments and criticisms!

GUNS

ownership = responsibility
responsibility = knowledge, skill, purpose, Owning a Safe!

**Would just like to add "If you live by the sword, you die by the sword"**


DRUGS

Many have medicinal uses (including Marijuana), if your just getting high then JUST SAY NO. Also being hooked on prescription drugs is the same as 'HARD DRUGS' your still a drug addict


ALCOHOL

If you have to drink then you should stop because you have a problem. 
Being drunk all the time is not something to aspire to, be of sober mind.


POLITICS

If 'YOU' the person are defined by your political affiliation then your hooked into the "Matrix". No party is doing "Gods work" or making the world a better place. People have let politics become their religion.


WORK

If you are able then you need to have a job. Work smarter not just harder.


LANGUAGE

Americans should aspire to learn English for everyday use in our society. People should expand their vocabulary and learn other languages as well. As our world becomes more connected it is necessary. Speaking intelligently and respectfully should be preferred over loud and rude,

**Also just because you don't curse it doesn't mean you're a good person or smarter than anyone**


SCIENCE

Cannot solve or explain everything, but can't be wholly discarded because of your religious or political ideology. Fire still burns whether you choose to believe in it or not.


MUSIC

Rap is not crap, but a lot of today's is very generic and overuses cussing and the 'N' word. Country has become pop with a southern sound to it. Bad behavior is encouraged in all forms of music, it is just hidden better in some and more explicit in others. We need to value people that actually know music and play instruments instead of those that just look good. It wouldn't hurt if  more people tried listening to jazz, blues, reggae, classical, and bluegrass. 

**For those that have an expanded music palette don't act snooty about it**


SPORTS

Track & Field is the truest of all sports. It is the ultimate test and expression of our abilities.

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.  http://jmfkauthor.blogspot.com/2018/09/fence-jumping.html   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
