A Little Disturbed III

Lastly there have been some anti-Semitic language used recently by a few black people of prominence. For some of them I must say this is not new and if you go back you will see that they have made similar statements in the past. Even if they actually had some basis for what they have said, it is drawing attention away from the message of police brutality and injustice. I want to unequivocally say that any Antisemitism or Racist language against white people is just as wrong as what they say against black people. People saying and doing such things should not be supported and need to admit their wrong and try to make amends and learn. I did read that Nick Cannon has made efforts to do that, and I pray this helps him grow as a person.
     Now I know that I will take flak from some people for saying these things, but I am fine with it. You see I am willing to do the right thing and call out wrong when I see it. I believe in Jesus and his love for us and that we need to love our neighbors in return. I am not afraid to stand up and speak out, unlike many I live around who have been silent for years as things like Charlottesville happened. People who support those that peddle in divisive language and hate speech on twitter and Facebook. People who claim to not be political until its something that affects them or there's. People who because of fear stand by as things are said and done that they know in their hearts are wrong. I can't stand by and watch. I am truly trying to "Love my Neighbor" which means more than just wishing them well or giving them some money or feeding them. It may mean stepping up to defend them from the hate of this world, whether they be friend or foe, even if it means that you might get hurt in the process.
     It is time to stop playing at doing what is right. It is time for people of faith, not in your political overlords and their worldly laws, but in the true Messiah and his Holy word, to stand for peace. To decide to respect and care for each other despite our differences. The incidents I have wrote about are disturbing, but maybe even more so is that we have backed so far into our various political and cultural corners that we have forgotten about the thing that should unify us, Jesus.

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
