Digital Age of Book of Burning

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/04/08/amazon-is-on-a-digital-book-burning-spree/

I was one of the first users of the Internet in the Church and Christian community.  In fact, during the mid 1990’s I gave lectures and presentations nationally and internationally on the power of the Internet.  In the beginning I saw the internet as a means of leveling the playing field.  The big corporations and the little guys now could compete for the market in a relatively inexpensive way.  I believed at that time the media would be transformed and print and broadcast media as we knew it would die.  In fact, I sat in the home of the publisher of The Miami Herald in the mid-90’s with my attorney predicting that the Miami Herald print edition would not exist in 15 years.  He laughed at me stating that, “People will always want to have the physical paper in their hands.”  Well I guess we all know what happened.  The printed version of the Miami Herald and most papers in the U.S. are almost non-existent.

The internet in its earliest years was a FREE and dynamic wild wild west.  It exploded with new ideas and thought.  I thought we were entering into a great new world with the free exchange of ideas, opinions and thought.  However, the big corporations and those small internet companies rapidly began a process on going public, raising billions of dollars and then the buy outs and mergers began.  The consolidation and power of the internet has literally destroyed this free and powerful medium and exchange of ideas.  Now the corporations governed by profit and shareholders would control the content, distribution and thoughts of the internet.

Early on I sounded the alarm that even though books would be in digital form we should be worried that in digital form they could be easily changed or even eliminated.  In my own life I personally gave away over 10,000 books (I now regret this) as I had easy access via the internet.  But my worst concerns have began to happen.  The masters of the universe, the digital czars, are now in the process of censoring and even eliminating books, articles, and banning opinions contrary to their stated social positions.  This is happening at a very quick pace.  Remember when you buy a book from Amazon Kindle or Apple Books you never really own the content as you would when you buy the printed version.  In fact, if you read the disclaimers you will find these companies can remove, change or eliminate the content at will.  You have no control over the changes.

How long will it be before the Bible the most important book in human history is banned from the internet as hate speech?  How long will it be before the contents of the Bible are slowly changed and modified to comply with our social political correctness?  It is only a matter of time as these changes occur.

I suggest that the Christian community must develop an alternative system to preserve and maintain our literature and culture before it is banned from the planet.  We should maintain hard copies of our great works and create an alternative the the Masters of the Internet where we have separate access to our history and content. 

Luke 21:33
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.”

OMG – House votes in favor of illegal immigrant voting

The Democrats have demonstrated they are no longer representing the Citizens of this country!  When the illegal immigrant has more rights than the Citizens then the Citizens become a second class person.  This is a political ploy to destroy America.

Cloward–Piven strategy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloward–Piven_strategy is a strategy to overwhelm the social aid system to precipitate a national policy of socialism.

Principles for allocation of scarce medical interventions

We are in the midst of a medical transformation in America!  For those who think that universal or one-payer is the solution you should read the

Principles for allocation of scarce medical interventions

written by –  Ezekiel J Emanuel, Department of Bioethics, The Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892-1156, USA

Dr Emanuel who was one of the primary influences on the Obama Care law discusses the following:

“Allocation of very scarce medical interventions such as organs and vaccines is a persistent ethical challenge. We evaluate eight simple allocation principles that can be classified into four categories: treating people equally, favouring the worst-off, maximising total benefits, and promoting and rewarding social usefulness. No single principle is sufficient to incorporate all morally relevant considerations and therefore individual principles must be combined into multiprinciple allocation systems. We evaluate three systems: the United Network for Organ Sharing points systems, quality-adjusted life-years, and disability-adjusted life-years. We recommend an alternative system—the complete lives system—which prioritizes younger people who have not yet lived a complete life, and also incorporates prognosis, save the most lives, lottery, and instrumental value principles.” https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(09)60137-9/fulltext

The Complete Lives System is by design a plan to ration health care to the participates of Obama Care and Single Payer based upon adjusted life-years, disability-adjusted life-years.  In other words it is designed to treat the younger people over the needs of the elderly and disabled first.

Please read the attached PDF and understand the government officials and politicians who propose these plans and ideas WILL NEVER BE A PART OF THE PLAN!  The politicians and government officials have their own private health plans that are the BEST available – not YOU!

READ FOR YOURSELF: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(09)60137-9/fulltext

Don’t be fooled by the political debate the Politicians always exempt themselves from the plans they believe are the best of you.  GIVE US THE SAME PLAN all the Senators, House of Representatives get or mandate they must drop their plans and participate in the one they are pawning off on us!

THE HUSBAND STORE – A Must read for all women!

Image

A store that sells husbands has just opened in New City , where a
woman may go to choose a husband.

Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the
store operates. You may visit the store ONLY ONCE !

There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the
shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch . . .. you may
choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a
floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! So, a
woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband . .

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 – These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are
extremely good looking.

“Wow,” she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-
dead good looking and help with the housework.

“Oh, mercy me!” she exclaims, “I can hardly stand it!”
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:

Floor 5 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-
dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic
streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the
sign reads:

Floor 6 – You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor.
There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that
women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you
exit the building, and have a nice day!

Transformational Moments of Life

There are moments in each of our lives that are so dynamic they have the potential the change your life forever. These are transformational moments in that they require you to go beyond your preconceived notions and limitations. They are so powerful when they happen you can often look back and realize it was a pivotal moment in your life and destiny.

I also call them holy moments. Moments in time when it seems like the very holiness of God himself reaches down and touches your life forever. Can you remember a holy moment in your life?

These are moments that are so amazing your entire concept of life itself changes. It is in that moment you are no longer just one person on a planet with six billion people, but rather you sense that you are at the very center and God’s purposes and destiny.

Unfortunately, once we have these moments it becomes very easy to allow yourself to regress back into the same humdrum of the past, or worst yet, simply play them off as non events.

You have a dynamic destiny on this earth. Your life is not one of accident or failure. Once you change the way you see yourself and the way you see God you subtly begin to realize there is a comprehensive plan and role that you are fulfilling. Unfortunately, most people live there lives in a sense of hopeless desperation, never being aware of how important their lives truly are on this planet.

When we don’t recognize the hand of God in our lives we become hopeless, faithless discouraged individuals. We allow circumstances to rule us and then our fears and emotions dictate our lives.

YOU DON’T DROWN BY FALLING IN THE WATER – YOU DROWN BY STAYING THERE!

Transition

We are living in a time of great movement and transition and transformation.  These are two words we use very commonly in our everyday speech.  However, there meanings are very important.

Transition – movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage, subject, concept, etc.

It is the movement from one place or concept to another.

Transformation – to move beyond form.

It is the understanding that in the Spiritual we are moving beyond the limitations of our form or body.

The transitional reality involves your willingness to move beyond your current concepts and position and allow transformation or the movement beyond the limitations of your form or body to occur.

This requires changing the way you see yourself and life itself.  As I have taught you in the past you will only see what you can believe.  Beliefs in limitations as to form or to your current realities of physical life create a world that is very limited.

Your perception of your life will determine what you do in life and your perspective in life will determine what you see which will in turn determine your perception of life.

To live a life without limitations requires you to see a life without limitations.  The problems we currently experience are usually limitations of the physical and mental states of thinking.

The ability to see your life differently you must first be willing to change what you currently believe.  You must be willing to look into a realm or a dimension you may or may not even realize exists.  You must be willing to go where few men have gone before.

TRANSFORMATION

TRANSFORMATION – The Key to Living in Zoe

By Dr. Rick Patterson

It was asked of a man who was dying, “What does it feel like to live each day knowing you are dying?”  The dying man replied, “What does it feel like to live each day pretending you are not?”

What does it feel like to pretend you are living when indeed you know there has to be more to life than this?

TRANS – BEYOND

FORM – Body

trans•form – go beyond the body! 

I am more than my body!  I am more than the limitations of my body!  I am more than the limitations of my current belief system!

1. to change in form, appearance, or structure; metamorphose.
2. to change in condition, nature, or character; convert.
3. to change into another substance; transmute.
to undergo a change in form, appearance, or character; become transformed.

KJV Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

NIV Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is– his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Change the way you see!

1 Cor. 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

How long will you continue to look at life through your parent’s or your grandparent’s glasses?

We use our parents negative patterns and attitudes to view what our life looks like.

If we could open our eyes to see new ways of relating, seeing, and doing.

Question:

Where in your life are you using your mother’s glasses?

When will you look with the eyes of success and opportunity?

What opportunities are you unable to see because you see only what you want to see?

Proverbs 4:25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

Proverbs 4:26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

Proverbs 4:27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

What are the distractions in your life that keep you from the destiny and reality you want to create?

How many distractions can you eliminate?

How soon can you eliminate them?

How many distractions do you actually invite in your life on a daily basis?

Imagine for the next five minutes what it might feel like to be free from the bondages and hinderances of distractions?

What do you need to cut away in your life?

Are you willing to do that?

Why or why not?

NIV Luke 19:1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through.

2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.

3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd.

4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.

5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”

Note:  He could not see Jesus because of the crowd!  He could not see his destiny because of the crowd.

What crowd are you hanging around that keeps you from seeing success and potential?

Are your friends encouraging and supporting your desire to be successful in a greater way?

Are your friends hindering you from seeing your opportunities, your greatness, your potential?

If so consider changing your friends!
