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.
TRUMP: Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton
President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.
Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.
White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.
“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”
Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.
Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.
Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”
“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
