If You Had the Powers of Christ, Would You Use Them to Become Wealthy?

One of the most perplexing aspects of the ministry of Jesus Christ was His treatment of the poor.  While He certainly went out of the way to be compassionate to the disrespected in society, healing the sick, touching and healing lepers, ministering to tax collectors and prostitutes, He never uses His powers to make Himself or others, wealthy.

When He gives the lesson of the widow’s mite, He does not return the mite to the widow, He allows her to keep her dignity and contribute to the kingdom.  When He is asked to pay taxes He uses the miracle of catching a fish with the exact amount needed to pay the obligation.  Another time He is asked if taxes were ethical, He in turn asks: whose image is on the coin and instructs: ‘Give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and to God that which is Gods.’  He seems never to be interested in our social status or wealth, but in our lives.  He does not come into our lives to make us wealthy or powerful, but to make us His.  And that, my dear brethren, is the gospel.

Note to the President: God Has a Different Definition of “Fair Share”

The Biblical principal for taxation can be found in this statement: “The rich shall not pay more, and the poor shall not pay less” Exodus 30:15 .  You see God has a different definition of ‘fair share’ than the president.

I cannot help but be amused at the President and his buddy, Warren Buffet.  Buffet claims he does not pay enough taxes, so the president presents Buffet’s secretary at the State of the Union, as a poor woman who pays a higher bracket than Buffet.  Well, first of all, if Buffet wants to pay more, why not do so?  There is a line on the tax form which will allow him to contribute any amount he wishes.

Second, just how poor is his secretary?

The IRS publishes detailed tax tables by income level. The latest results are for 2009. They show that taxpayers earning an adjusted gross income between $100,000 and $200,000 pay an average rate of twelve percent. This is below Buffet’s rate; so she must earn more than that. Taxpayers earning adjusted gross incomes of $200,000 to $500,000, pay an average tax rate of nineteen percent. Therefore Buffet must pay Debbie Bosanke a salary above two hundred thousand.

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2012/01/25/estimate_warren_buffetts_secretary_makes_200500k_per_year

I practiced dentistry for over 33 years earning more than the average salary for my efforts.  But my salary never approached 500K, never.  So, why not everybody, ever individual, rich or poor pay the same percentage… once?  No more double dipping by the government.  Eliminate capital gains, death tax, state income taxes; get rid of them all for a consumption and real estate tax at the state and federal levels.  Along with the end of the Income Tax, eliminate the IRS.  Just three taxes: a national and state sales tax and real estate taxes to fund the budget.  But it must be a ‘just tax’; with no exemptions, and supporting a balance budget.  A fair share would be the same for rich or poor, every citizen be made to pay their fair share as is explicit in the scripture when assessing the temple tax: “The rich shall not pay more, and the poor shall not pay less” Exodus 30:15.

Note to the Republican Establishment:

“we don’t trust the ensconced Republicans

The more you side with Bob Dole and the establishment the more we will be drawn to Newt.  We don’t trust you Washington, we don’t trust the ensconced Republicans any more than we do the Democrats (well maybe a little bit more).  So step out of the way and let the best man win, or back a reasonable conservative alternative… like supporting Rick Santorum.

Here are a couple more interesting subjects from the State of the Union Speech Tuesday:

Obama rehashes his ‘wish list’

Russ Jones and Chris Woodward – OneNewsNow – 1/25/2012 7:30:00 AM

President Barack Obama delivered his third State of the Union address Tuesday evening. The 44th U.S. president took aim on tax equality, but critics said the address was more about his bid for re-election — and media reports describe it as a “wish list” more than a “to-do list.”

As expected, the president cast his vision of balancing the scales between the rich and the poor. “Where everyone gets a fair shot and everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules,” he stated.

 

In an interview with OneNewsNow, Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) says with a national debt $4.6 trillion and 1.4 million Americans unemployed, a class warfare agenda is not what the country needs. “More and more Americans [are] relying on the government for their assistance — that’s not progress,” says the congressman. “And the president would like us to forget he’s actually been president now for three years.”

http://www.onenewsnow.com/Politics/Default.aspx?id=1522330

Gingrich: Obama Called for More ‘Big Government’

Newt Gingrich released the following statement responding to President Obama’s State of the Union address:

We have a crisis of work in this country and tonight President Obama proposed nothing in the way of policy changes that will get us to robust job creation and dramatic economic growth.

Instead, the president described his conviction that his big government is built to last and should be paid for with higher taxes.

But bigger government and higher taxes will not lead to jobs and growth. Bigger government and higher taxes will instead lead to more people on food stamps, a situation which the President and his party defend as a fair outcome.

Here we have to confront the truth about President Obama. Economic growth and prosperity is not really at the top of his agenda. He will always prefer a food stamp economy to a paycheck economy and call it fair.

For the president and a large part of the political class, it’s about their power, their right to rule. They just want to take money from Joe the Plumber – the small business people who makes over 90 per cent of the new jobs — and redistribute it to the government bureaucracy and their political friends and allies. That’s why so much of that nearly trillion-dollar stimulus didn’t create jobs but just went into the pockets of special interests who support President Obama and the leadership of the Democratic Party.

                 So why not keep buying oil from them, maybe they will finally understand us?

No better example of this exists than in the crisis of American energy. President Obama and his political allies – not of few of whom love living in energy inefficient houses or driving gas-guzzling luxury vehicles – openly admit they want gas prices to remain high so that the rest of America will learn to live more modestly. They think it’s good for rest of us. Only recently, the president canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline that would have created countless new jobs and helped America on the way to energy independence because he wanted to appease the far left of his party. And yet not a single word on the Keystone XL pipeline tonight.

Lighter Side

 


Our Marilyn sends us this:

WIFE VS. HUSBAND

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, “Relatives of yours?”
“Yep,” the wife replied, “in-laws.”

W O R D S
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day…
30,000 to a man’s 15,000.
The wife replied, “The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men…
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, “What?”

CREATION
A man said to his wife one day, “I don’t know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
” The wife responded, “Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

.The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each
other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day,
he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
“Please wake me at 5:00 AM.” He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM
and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and
see why his wife hadn’t wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by
the bed. The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.”
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

God may have created man before woman,

but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.

 

And America worries about being Politically Correct

 Top Ten Reasons Why Men Prefer Guns Over Women

And here we go…

#10 – You can trade an old 44 for a new 22.

#9 – You can keep one gun at home and have another for when you’re on the road.

#8 – If you admire a friend’s gun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times.

#7 – Your primary gun doesn’t mind if you keep another gun for a backup.

#6 – Your gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo.

#5 – A gun doesn’t take up a lot of closet space.

#4 – Guns function normally every day of the month.

#3 – A gun doesn’t ask , “Do these new grips make me look fat?”

#2 – A gun doesn’t mind if you go to sleep after you use it.

And the Number One reason
Why Men Prefer Guns over women…..

#1 – You can buy a silencer for a gun

Superintendent bullies Christian student, calls him ‘ignorant’

Send an email to Shawano Superintendent Todd Carlson. Urge him to immediately apologize for his unconstitutional and irrational censorship and humiliation of student Brandon Wegner.

January 25, 2012

Dear William D,

School officials at Shawano High School in Wisconsin have censored and punished Brandon Wegner, a 15-year-old, for writing an op-ed article explaining the Biblical view of homosexuality and supporting natural mother-father adoption, according to Liberty Counsel.

After Brandon wrote this article he was pulled into hours of meetings with school administrators and staff, without his parents’ knowledge.

Superintendent Todd Carlson told him that the column “went against the bullying policy,” and asked him if he “regretted” writing it. According to Liberty Counsel, when Mr. Wegner stated that he did not regret writing it, and that he stood behind his beliefs, Superintendent Carlson told him that he had “to be one of the most ignorant kids to try to argue with him about this topic,” that “we have the power to suspend you if we want to” and that the column had “personally offended me, so I know you offended other people!”

Brandon’s opinion was a part of an editorial page which presented viewpoints both for and against homosexual adoption, each articulated by a student. After the school newspaper was published in the local town paper, a homosexual in the community complained to the school. School officials then censored Brandon’s article, forcing him and his classmates to pull the page out of the newspaper before distribution at the school.

Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said “The bullying at Shawano High School is by Superintendent Todd Carlson and the school officials, not the student, Brandon Wegner. The school officials have displayed blatant intolerance of a view on homosexuality held by many people. The school’s actions are shocking and unjustified. The superintendent should immediately apologize and stop the bullying.”

Pres. Obama’s Jobs & Immigration Disconnect in State of Union Address …

What really galled me was Pres. Obama bragging about more than 3 million U.S. jobs created during the last 22 months. 

That could have been good news for unemployed Americans. 

But during that same period, the Obama Administration issued more than 3 million work visas to new immigrants and other foreign workers (more than half of them permanent).

***********************************************

What is the point of all that talk in the speech about creating jobs when the federal government is importing so many new workers? 

But on our TV screens tonight, the Culprit in Chief in giving away the jobs to foreign workers was not the Commander in Chief giving the speech. Rather, it was the Speaker of the House sitting behind him. 

(Read more about how Speaker Boehner could make a big difference: https://www.numbersusa.com/content/node/12978

Compared to the heavy-metal terror I used to feel listening to Pres. Bush’s State of the Union immigration appeals, Pres. Obama’s obligatory immigration section tonight was easy-listening music. The verses and chorus pushing for amnesties for illegal aliens were nearly identical to last year’s speech and just didn’t sound like he had a thought in the world that any of it could happen. 

That is a tribute to the relentless efforts of all of you.

From the Chisel… Monday, January 23, 2012 10:50 AM
Subject: Fwd:  Dr. Williams’ prediction – Obama 2012


 This is very scary……….everyone must vote!
WHY OBAMA WILL BE RE-ELECTED IN 2012

Dr. Williams’ prediction: Maybe you have read some newspaper articles written by Dr. Williams a conservative economist who happens to be Black. He has taught at several Universities and is currently teaching at George MasonUniversity .

No Matter What By Dr. Walter Williams
Can President Obama be defeated in 2012? No. He can’t.. I am going on record as saying that President Barak Obama will win a second term.  The media won’t tell you this because a good election campaign means hundreds of millions (or in Obama’s case billions) of dollars to them in advertising.

But the truth is, there simply are no conditions under which Barak Obama can be defeated in 2012.  The quality of the Republican candidate doesn’t matter. Obama gets reelected.

Nine percent unemployment? No problem. Obama will win.
Gas prices moving toward five dollars a gallon? He still wins.
The economy soars or goes into the gutter. Obama wins.
War in the Middle East ? He wins a second term.

America’s role as the leading Superpower disappears? Hurrah for Barak Obama!
The U.S. government rushes toward bankruptcy, the dollar continues to sink on world markets and the price of daily goods and services soars due to inflation fueled by Obama’s extraordinary deficit spending? Obama wins handily.

You are crazy Williams. Don’t you understand how volatile politics can be when overall economic, government, and world conditions are declining? Sure I do.

And that’s why I know Obama will win. The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics. And economics is the key to why Obama should be defeated.

Even when Obama’s policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority of the American pe ople are going to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in the media will use to explain why it isn’t his fault. After all, things were much worse than understood when he took office.

Obama’s reelection is really a very, very simple math problem. Consider the following:

(This makes me ill but I do respect this man… and me and God makes a majority… so pray already!)

1) Blacks will vote for Obama blindly. Period. Doesn’t matter what he does. It’s a race thing. He’s one of us,

2) College educated women will vote for Obama. Though they will be  offended by this, they swoon at his oratory. It’s really not more complex than that,

 


3) Liberals will vote for Obama. He is their great hope,

4) Democrats will vote for Obama. He is the leader of their party and his coat tails will carry them to victory nationwide,

5) Hispanics will vote for Obama. He is the path to citizenship for those  who are illegal and Hispanic leaders recognize the political clout they carry in the Democratic Party,

6) Union members will vote overwhelmingly for Obama. He is their key to money and power in business, state and local politics,

7) Big Business will support Obama. They already have. He has almost $1 Billion dollars in his reelection purse gained largely from his
connections with Big Business and is gaining more every day. Big Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money so long as they support his social and political agenda,

8) The media love him. They may attack the people who work for him, but  they love him. After all, to not love him would be racist,

9) Most other minorities and special interest groups will vote for him. Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews and Muslims will support him because they won’t vote Republican. American Indians will support him. Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic. And lastly,

10) Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama. And he doesn’t need anywhere near that number because he has all of the groups previously mentioned. The President will win an overwhelming victory in 2012.

– Dr. Walter Williams

IN ADDITION TO THE VOTING BLOCKS HE MENTIONS, THERE IS ANOTHER HUGE GROUP:
THE NEARLY ONE-HALF OF ALL ADULTS DO NOT PAY ANY TAXES AND, IN FACT, MOST OF THEM
RECEIVE MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO “SHAKE THE BOAT”
TO DO ANYTHING TO STOP THE FLOW OF TAXPAYER MONEY TO THEMSELVES

It’s believed the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal’s – and they vote – then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

Marvelous Marcel relates this story about

One Pissed off Canadian Housewife
This is very good PLEASE read….

Thought you might like to read this letter
To the editor. Ever notice how some people
Just seem to know how to write a letter?

This one surely does!

This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how
It also applies to the U.S.A. , U.K. And Australia .

THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH

Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to
Her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady…

“Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was
It or was it not, started by Islamic people who
Brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001
And have continually threatened to do so since?

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered
That day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from
The capitol of the USA and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn’t they?

Do you think I care about four U. S. Marines urinating on some dead Taliban insurgents?

And I’m supposed to care that a few Taliban were
Claiming to be tortured by a justice system of a
Nation they are fighting against in a brutal Insurgency.

I’ll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle
East, start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief
Of which, is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

I’ll care when these thugs tell the world they are
Sorry for hacking off Nick Berg’s head, while Berg
Screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I’ll care when the cowardly so-called insurgents
In Afghanistan , come out and fight like men,
Instead of disrespecting their own religion by
Hiding in Mosques and behind women and children.

I’ll care when the mindless zealots who blow
Themselves up in search of Nirvana, care about the
Innocent children within range of their suicide Bombs.

I’ll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that
Their freedom of Speech on stories, is more important than
The lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting
At home, to hear about them when something happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a
CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent
Terrorist to obtain information, know this:

I don’t care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the
Head when he is told not to move because he
Might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

I don’t care. Shoot him again.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed ‘special’ food, that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being ‘mishandled,’ you can absolutely believe, in your heart of hearts:

I don’t care.

And oh, by the way, I’ve noticed that sometimes
it’s spelled ‘Koran’ and other times ‘Quran.’
Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it.

I don’t care!!

Letter from AFA bottom line support Lowe’s not Home Depot:

Home Depot digs in, issues statement to AFA

January 23, 2012

Dear William D,
Well, it looks like we got our hopes up only to have Home Depot knock them down.

Last week we reported that Home Depot appeared to be pulling back its support to homosexual activists. We spoke too soon. Immediately after we released our findings, Home Depot said it will continue to support homosexual activities.

Home Depot issued this email statement to AFA:

“We have never changed our commitment to diversity and inclusion of all people, and we have no intention of doing so. Nor have we changed our apron policy or the guidelines for our charitable giving.”

It now appears Home Depot is also breaking its own written policies.

Home Depot’s online policy states it will not sponsor “…festivals, dinners…fundraisers…,” yet it sponsors gay pride festivals and Human Rights Campaign fundraising dinner events.

Home Depot’s official spokesperson told AFA that employees are not allowed to wear their orange aprons outside its stores. But according to gay supporter Jordan Humphrey of Illinois, in the first week of 2012, “over 30 orange aprons showed up in Champaign’s new-years pride-fest.”

Every homosexual organization Home Depot supports has as their top priority the legalization of homosexual marriage.

TAKE ACTION

1. Pray for Home Depot Chairman Frank Blake to make wise decisions regarding his company’s direction.
2. If you have not done so, sign the Boycott Pledge at www.BoycottTheHomeDepot.com.
3. Call your local Home Depot store and ask to speak to the manager. You can find the number to your local store here (click “Store Finder” at top of page) or in your local phone book.
4. Print the paper petition and distribute it at Sunday school and church.

Kaybob Lt Col Allen West on Marines and urination:

Allen West (R-FL)
Congressman Allen West(R-FL) on the incident involving Marines
who urinated on three Taliban Corpses. West is known for his
own service, having retired from the Army as a Lt. Colonel.
“I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of
our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any
self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and
Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do
I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater
security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and
hung from a bridge in Fallujah.

 


“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks
need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the
101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under
field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place
a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel
file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their
Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and
Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine
Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
“As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the
Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”

Dr B’s Medical Update… as you know my cancer was not totally removed and had spread into the lymph and other surrounding tissues.  My prognosis is poor, but my spirits are high.  I have completed radiation (as of 12/21/11) 36 days almost four thousand miles ago.  I am also under hormone treatment (Lupron) for one year and will receive my third injection tomorrow.  I have drastically changed my diet… no meats with high fats and/or hormones (even chicken and turkey are not allowed, no dairy, just fish, fresh vegetables, and fruit)… also herbal teas thanks to 1.5 Anne and Cousin Sharon.  I also received more herbs from our ‘Pumpkin’ and a nutrition book (Marilyn is reading) from Mary D a high school friend.  With this diet and the Lupron my PSA is continuing to drop, but not yet ideal.  Pray I have the strength to endure these procedures and that the Lord strengthens me with courage, stamina, and wisdom.

Billy Graham’s Prayer for Our Nation:

‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics.. We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!’
