I was baptized and raised a Christian, in some folks minds not a sincere Christian. They claim I've blasphemed. I’ve always questioned everything. For me to believe, I have to know the claim is genuine, not for some ulterior motive, such as control. There is no better way to control people than to put them on a guilt trip, bring down God’s wrath on those who dare to question. For questioning, I’m castigated on this Tea Party. I’m been warned many times by Christians that I’m going to hell, and right here in these Tea Party discussions! I’m arrogant, egotistical, a shameful disgrace to humanity. I was barred from Tea Party Patriots, and warned by this Tea Party’s Director to quit casting aspersions on its founder. The founder cast aspersions on my beliefs. That’s acceptable on this Tea Party. I believe Jesus is my savior and redeemer. This Tea Party maintains that I’m a liar. It seems that Jesus had the same problem. They crucified him.
My mother was born and raised in the Jewish faith. She married a Christian and agreed to raise her children in the Christian faith. She was a Christian. A Christian minister presided at her burial. But she remained respectful of her Jewish background. My Christian minister maintained that my mother, because she was born a Jew, didn’t go to heaven. He said the Scriptures told him that. Too many Christians interpret the Scriptures the way they personally see reality. This mental sickness is dividing America.
I’m not one to accept the established way of thinking. I’m one to solve my problems my way. I believe in the Constitution as written, not in light of today’s needs. My principles and values date from the beginning of man’s appearance on earth. I believe that I was born in the image of my Creator, and as well every human on earth. We are all born with an immortal soul.
Jesus said the kingdom of God is in me. Jesus said that there would be signs in the sun, moon, and stars when there was distress among the nations (Luke 21). He said that this was when he would be there for us. He did not say in what form.
A lady told me that I’m a rock in the stream. I’m not one to hide my belief under a bushel. I see the stream on the tides, ebbing and flowing, and getting nowhere. Christians tend to be set in their ways. I’m not sure I have anything to contribute here, but I’d like to give it a try.
Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”
Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.
According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.
The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”
Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.
“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
