Salty Sez 2021 07 12 081235Leviathan, that’s the name of a particular monster that appears in the biblical book of Job. Seems a bit appropriate these days, as I’ll point out later. Some fellow, wanting to add to the governmental power of our Republic, once said, ‘the American people will just have to assume that the state acts for the general welfare.’ I guess I kinda thought that way back in my younger years, although that isn’t the way the Founding Fathers saw things. It does look like most of the American people took that bait… and failed to see the hook attached. Some of them still don’t see the hook that’s pulling them downstream to muddy waters.

Heard a Preacher the other day saying a lot of things the most fellows have been told preachers shouldn’t talk about. They understand that preachers, the church, and government just don’t mix? Of course it’s okay for the government to tell the preachers what they can and can’t say, it’s just a one-way street. Most preachers I’ve heard seem to have accepted that position, but not the one I just heard. You might say he called a spade a spade and a lie a lie.

Salty Sez 2021 06 28 073318That’s sort of a crazy title, at a time like this everyone knows something’s wrong. I can say it’s wrong that our 2020 election was stolen, but everybody already knows that. I can say that failing to prosecute those who did it is wrong, and everybody knows that too. Something is really wrong when essentially one man can control what is communicated to the people. What’s the guy’s name who heads Facebook, and who can tell anybody, even the President, what he is allowed to post there for the people? I heard somebody say he was probably the richest Jew in the world and he won’t let people put positive statements about the Jews there – Zuckerberg? I think that’s it. One might think he would like to promote the Jewish nation with as much positivity as possible. But, a magazine I received had an opening article that read “Facebook Bans the Largest Pro-Israel Voice in the World”.

Salty Sez 2021 06 21 141130A few weeks ago I said some things about the Equality Act Congress is working hard to pass. Now, I want equality myself: equality to say what I want to say and not have it cancelled, equality to say no to an untested vaccine that might eventually prove worse that the virus it is supposedly fighting -- but which some idiotic judge with no medical training says I have to take or my company can fire me. Technically I have no real knowledge of what the Equality Act spells out, but I have enough common sense to know that assuring equality of results is an impossibility, and that saying up is down does not make it true. We may say bad must equal good and dark must equal light, but whose standards are we following when we say it? Personal individuality is a quality built into the American system, and individuality guarantees inequality. It allows every American to use whatever talents he or she has to build his or her potential as far as possible. It is the quality that built this nation into the greatest country this world has known. Any law denying this principle would not be legal under our Constitution – but we-the-people seem to be allowing an unelected administration to pass numerous laws and regulations that are technically unconstitutional. And we, and most of our Supreme Court, seem not to be very interested.

Salty Sez 2021 06 14 101141Last week I talked about the bad news. This week I’m talking about the GOOD news. Of course, the real “good news” is the Gospel of Jesus Christ: His birth, His ministry, His death, His burial and His rising 3 days later. Another part of the good news is the Bible God has given us explains this good news. Often what I speak about includes references to the scriptures to illustrate the commentary. I am not a pastor nor a teacher of the scriptures…just a plain old Bible reader and truth seeker. In searching I have been introduced to a Pastor and Bible teacher who I believe is the best I have ever heard. He introduces his topic and examines its pros and cons in simple language anyone can understand. When he draws his conclusion you can put your faith in it. He doesn’t back away from controversy nor politics when they are pertinent. He even has a Friday evening program he calls pastors’ point of view (ppov), wherein he and another pastor discuss what is going on in the world today and how it fits into God’s plans. His name is Andrew (Andy) Woods. The church he pastors is the Sugar Land Bible Church in Sugar Land, Texas. https//slbc.org
