Liars abound still

In spite of real estate ethics codes, self regulation, the realtors I had  worked with were still some of the biggest liars still. Trust me! While they all claim they are here to be of service you ,  now just dream on, they are here solely to make money for themselves… and it seems any way they can.. I was shocked that when it came to making money the professing Christian Realtors now also were really no better than any of the others. The temptation to lie is much too great especially when there is a big chance you will lose the commission if you do not.. Realtors can make a commission on loan refferals as well.. Lawyers also make money when houses are sold and bought..  Few realtors, lawyers go to heaven still.

Retail sales in  CANADA rebounded in January 2009 from December, according to data released and sales rose very slightly on a monthly basis  but remained drastically down  compared with   2008.  Nationally, the retail sales rose as well January  after declining  in December, which was the largest monthly decline in more than 15 years. Stay tune now for more spins, liars, greed, false prophets too.

 Typical Real estate lying spins- Prices lower than last year- New listings continue to decline –  A buyer’s and seller’s market – Home sales set  record – well-priced listings and lower to mid-range priced properties remain in the highest demand –  A really good market presently to buy, sell.

During this year’s recession it is been a very good time to compare the various news media, institutions  and  to see how they lie, spin the truth to get more suckers to buy a home now..
 
Canada’s real estate market began serioulsy cooling off in the second half of 2008 and the statistics coming out in the first few months of 2009 strongly suggested that the trend would continue. http://www.cbc.ca/consumer/story/2008/11/14/f-realestatemap.html but greedy people who  want to get more money would try to tell you otherwise.
    
 It’s becoming easier to carry the costs of home ownership in Canada, but a survey by RBC Economics on housing affordability suggests this may be as good as it’s going to get. ” This is the same guy who failed to predict any downward movement on house prices. RBC was, just 18 months ago, predicting price growth in all markets. Well, prices in some markets went down 30% before starting to come back. Oops…     The thing to remember is that any “bank economist” ( who loan money)  is just someone hired to put out maximum positive spin on the housing market. Why the media prints the opinions of “bank economists”, when they are usually wrong and so obviously just spinning news for their own gain, is the bigger question.” These bank shysters are only going to say this in order to get more gullible people to bite off more than they can chew. Affordable, my axx. With this unstable job market we now have and the cost of everyday needs, who can ‘afford’ to buy now? Yeah. Try telling this to the hundreds of thousands of people forced into working in McJobs because their REAL jobs went bye-bye. There aren’t enough hours in a day for people to work so they can make their crazy mortgage payments, so they often have to sell at a loss, but by golly, keep spewing this garbage so the prices don’t fall TOO far. Can’t have that in the new era of corporate capitalism, can we? ” ” Unlike past years, in Ontario, only 1 in 6 houses are inspected, and there are little or no real recourse for people who buy bad houses.  It’s a big profit business, with no responsibility, little regulation and numbered Ontario corporations that disappear overnight. Horror stories number in the thousands around the GTA.”    http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2009/09/09/housing-affordability.html
 
    
A sharp deterioration in this country’s real-estate market that began last year is showing signs of tapering off?” “New listings, which had been growing at a double-digit pace when the market was strong, have been shrinking”. MAYBE CAUSE HOME OWNERS DO NOT  WANT TO TAKE SUCH A BIG SALES PROFIT LOSS AT THIS TIME?   Nevertheless “This is going to remain a buyers’ market for some months to come,” I get a chuckle when I see the regular lies, or spins that Realtors use to try to get you to buy a home, it is always a good time for you to buy a home, good for them cause they get a commission..  it’s normal for Home/house sales to pick up as spring approaches.  You sell your house, you buy a home is the realtor spin as well. 
 
 
“Oh, more lies and imaginary figures put out by an agency that has everything to gain by lying and fudging the numbers. Let’s see those reports and stats all in paperwork. This is nothing but BS trying to trick potential buyers into buying now while the prices are STILL way inflated. People never learn.” http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/08/05/bc-real-estate-numbers-july.html#socialcomments 
 
Face it banks, Trusts, money lenders, News media, Realtors  often still exaggerate, spin, lie to get you to buy a home, it is always a good time for them mostly  if you do, for they get a commission, interests etc…  now most people missed the best buy for the present major real estate selling season is over for the year.. now all that is mostly left is all the rejects, over priced listings left to sell.  News media often also spread the  lies cause that is what they are paid for through the newspaper adds.. 
 
Is it really a  Home buyers’ market conditions sales pitch that now takes THE OSTRICH APPROACH FOR  the deliberate  absence of all realted, new bad news – especially when home prices  may continue to drop or prices remain low for another decade too? I was a RE/Max realtor but I did not tell the common real estate lies, false spins, I  don’t sell my soul to the devil to get a commission. I would still wait a few years before I would buy a home to see how the home market trend goes. Too many News media also  love to put a positive spin, not likely a true one, on negative news still too…  they tend to have hidden agendas too.

and the Realtors computer evaluations can still be misleading, a realtor can chose even to set false parameters in their general evaluations..

 http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/10/liberals-politicians-do-lie-too/ so do many Pastors, so why not everyone else? 

I can quickly sum up my political experiences in Canada.. for decades now most people in Canada  seem to elect liars and alcoholics for politicians, and we have had now much too many of them elected as well.. Of course  it seems natural for alcoholics to lie, they seen to often lie that it is is ok to drink alcohol in the first place, and it seems natural for many lawyers who run for political offices, and many want to be politicians to lie to get elected.. Yes most people elect liars who tell them the things they want to hear.. we all know that had Stephen Harper told the truth that Canada was going into a major depression next, he very likely would have never got elected. so he said there was going to be no election or recession, he clearly lied. After he was elected he admits Canada was facing a big recession of course, how could he deny otherwise. I openly express the truth that we should stop electing any liars and alcoholics, even in the police forces, civil and public services now too,  and when it is confirmed that they are thieves, cheats,  liars or alcoholics they should be immediately fired, recalled.. as simple as that too. Some professing ostrich evangelical totally deny that the professing Christians drink alcohol, they have a problem with the alcoholics rather and not me I merely reported the truth, facts, that many professing Christians drink alcohol and falsely try to justify it as well.. Alcohol does a lot of brain damages, negatively affects your ability to work, to live normal, alcohol is a major cause of car accidents, tends to destroy your family life, so of course I have no use for alcohol or alcoholics anywhere. Neither should any of us not just MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. and a  bad immoral Conservatives is not better than a bad immoral Liberal, especially firstly the alcoholic ones.

and consumer protection  is another big government farce now too..

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/04/15/consumers-affairs/

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/federal-consumer-protection-ha-ha-ha/

Ever notice how the average person lies once every 5 minutes at least, so imagine what the big liars do, how often the politicians, and some news media, realtors lie.. signifcantly a lot more.. Even “Some people say that the recession is over but try telling that to the unemployed and their families”  Now the jobless are being driven onto the welfare rolls (the responsibility of provinces and municipalities) or   forcing  them to plunder their assets such as homes and retirement savings, maximizing their credit car debts. Neither option is pleasant. The given Canadian  government Unemployment figures always have been big lies cause they are adjusted figures of people receiving UIC cheques, they do not actually sate all of the people unemployed who do not qualify for UIC, have been forced to go onto social welfare or have to get part time jobs with no fringe benefits or have become self employed which is a costly undertaking. Notice how often news media do not agree on the same news story, facts and how they lie about the real estate news, generally encouraging people to buy a new home of course.. get more debts.. In Toronto “New home sales jumped to 3,782 in June 2009 from 3,544 last June, a 7 per cent increase, and total sales hit 10,951 from 8,596 – a 27 per cent hike. But housing starts declined to 1,395 from 2,567 in the same period, a 46 per cent drop, and new listings declined to 13,357 from 16,068, a 17 per cent fall-off.”  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/21/canadas-unemployment-figures-lie/

REVENUE GENERATING TRAFFIC TICKETS

00(RCMP)

THESE DAYS DURING THE RECESSION IT IS CLEAR AGAIN THAT TRAFFIC TICKETS ARE TOO OFTEN BEING FALSELY  USED AGAIN AS A PROVINCIAL, MUNICIPAL  CASH COW, CASH GRAB, INCOME TAX SUPPLEMENTAL!

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/

.

Drink Alcohol and Die « The non conformer’s Canadian Weblog   Drink Alcohol and Die or Kill is fast becoming Canada’s preoccupation, main goal, slogan.. Alcohol and alcoholics the unacceptable main cause of vehicular  accidents, domestic violence, and so many other ills… DRUNK DRIVING  KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING FIRSTLY  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/alcohol/

.

“Traffic rules account for most of the contact by average citizens with law enforcement and the courts.  Enforcement of laws which are widely perceived as unreasonable and unfair generates disrespect and even contempt toward those who make and enforce those laws.
  .
If the”  photo enforcement tickets can put a point on your driving record.  So, they have to have a good picture of your face.  .” A picture of your license plate doesn’t establish that you did the crime – it only establishes that your car did it, and anyone could have been driving your car.  And if your name is on the ticket but it’s not your face in the photo, you don’t have to identify the person driving. Simply ask the judge, “Are you sure it’s me?” Or you could say, more formally, “I request dismissal of this ticket as there isn’t proof beyond a reasonable doubt that I was driving the vehicle.”  The preceding two phrases are not testimony, so give you the added advantage that if the judge asks you, “Well then, who is it?” you can tell him that you have not agreed to testify.
 .
REVENUE GENERATING TRAFFIC TICKETS ARE ESCALATING TOO  IN  MUNIUCIPALTIES, PROVINCES NOW TRYING TO  recover from the BAD economic downturn. THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO  IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO.
 .
 
Now I have said it for over 3 decades in wrting to all too so Call it what you want but it is not about public safety, for it is  a self employment, empire  building, false money grab, revenue generation, hidden taxes.. for if  the cops, the mad RCMP  were now really worried about public safety THEY WOULD FIRSTLY ARREST THEIR OWN KIND, THE BAD COPS WHO OFTEN DRIVE HOME DRUNK AFTER WORK, COMING HOME FROM THE POLICE TAVERN, and they would ALSO go after the people who drive reckless, fail to stop at the stop signs, traffic stop lights, and the impaired drunken drivers, the unsafe cars whose brakes are squealing cause they need to be repaired.. etc.,,
  .
In reality the too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police, and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians  really do not care about the citizens good welfare but only their own.. ANOTHER CASH GRAB..
  .
The Calgary Parking Authority is expanding its hold on the inner city by starting to charge for parking on more than 20 blocks of the Beltline. 
 .
 CALGARY AND EDMONTON POLICE ISSUE MORE TRAFFIC TICKETS OVER ANY OTHER CITIES  IN CANADA AND  FOR DECADES NOW TOO!  Alberta’s TOO MANY crooked cops, RCMP included..
1
  .
TRAFFIC TICKETS QUOTA. A blatant false  tax on the motorist by more Speeding tickets..
  .
Traffic lights safety. A number of studies have shown that by simply increasing the length of “amber” or “yellow” lights, dangerous intersections can be made safe.  “By increasing the length of yellow lights you can cut down on the amount of violations and accidents at an intersection”  Studies show that lengthening the amber light gives drivers more time to make s  choice and more time to brake.  But in some cash-strapped communities, shorter yellow lights at intersections equipped with red-light cameras means more tickets — and that means more money.  The use of the cameras needs to be monitored so drivers aren’t taken advantage of.  “There also  needs to be a national standard for the length of amber lights.”  A study released  the Texas Transportation Institute concluded that extending a yellow light by 1.5 seconds would decrease red-light-running by at least 50 percent.
.

And the insurance companies have a false, vested monetary interest in the success of the Traffic cameras, traffic tickets. “The insurance industry  profits from the cameras and the having  more cameras means more tickets being issued so then they can raise the drivers’ insurance rates.” The traffic engineers who install these cameras are all-too-frequently tempted to reduce the amount of time that the traffic light stays “yellow” before turning “red.” Precisely because it will likely increase the number of drivers who run red lights, this alteration allows the surveillance system attached to the traffic light to catch more red-light runners, and thus generate more revenues for the state (see below). Unfortunately, indeed, tragically, altering the timing of the traffic light also causes more rear-end collisions, and thus more injuries to drivers and their passengers.  It seems very likely that the real reward for the increasing use of traffic cameras is not better safety on the streets, but higher revenues

.

Red Light Camera Tickets in Ontario. Red light camera tickets are traffic tickets that are issued as a result of a traffic camera being placed at an intersection to photograph vehicles who enter the intersection after the traffic signal has turned red. Upon being photographed traveling through the intersection on a red traffic signal, the municipality will issue a notice to the owner of the vehicle. The violation notice will have a picture of the vehicle showing the speed it was traveling, and that the traffic signal was red when the vehicle entered. The penalty for a Red light Camera Ticket is 180 dollars. There is no accumulation or loss of demerit points for this ticket. Nor is a record kept with the Ministry of Transportation, or available to the insurance companies.  Red light camera tickets will not affect your insurance rates.

.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Aug. 25 (UPI) — Plaintiffs in lawsuits against red-light traffic cameras in Florida towns say the devices violate the principle of uniform traffic laws. Lawyers argue the cameras violate the principle that the lawbreaking driver is supposed to get the ticket. Because tickets are handed out based only on the license plate number, the owner of the vehicle gets the ticket no matter who was behind the wheel.  http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/08/25/Lawsuits-challenge-traffic-cameras/UPI-54871251239776/

 .Follow the money trail… About the money. Looking more at concerns that many citizens have raised in recent years about police practices, many are about money and police departments’ roles in collecting it—whether to supplement their own or their municipality’s budget.

Photo radar’s real goal..  Are motorists school-zone scoff laws or haplessly feeding a cash cow? http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opinion/analysis/photo-radars-real-goal-299297351.html .

.

There is a concen about the usage of radars, automated speed cameras and whether their use was being driven by public safety goals or a desire to maximize revenue and not redcuing the deaths of citizens in car accidents. yes concerns about the inmmoral behavior by the Police department and court system aimed at advancing revenue collection rather than public safety—and that fact that too many of those efforts were managed to ensure that the Police department was “bringing in revenue at the desired rate.” Creating a way for police activities to become partially self-funding, and setting them up in that way thatas rather “criminals” seems to be politically attractive and has the approval  of the Police itself.

.

The perversed municipal courts too often do lie at the heart of this corrupted police, justice system now too.. Their  criminals out of citizens who want to abide by law and then they the citizens  can’t get jobs that would bring in taxes clearly has the devil’s support. . These municipal officials need to be charged with corruption and racketeering. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/they-often-do-steal-the-designated-monies/ .

.

While the goal of having every call for Police service fast and effectively, actively engaging diverse communities, preparing for security threats like terrorism, and responding to societal problems as varied as drug abuse, mental illness, youth violence and human trafficking, having discretionary resources to allow the police flexibility in their efforts to do all those different tasks seems to be a vaiable goal, the devil is always in the false diversions, Promotions and empire bulding. These are certainly competing goals here. If the Police Management, officers start getting overly rewarded for how much revenue they bring in, the legitmate concern becomes whether their law enforcement action will become driven more by the goal of revenue and less by the goal of public safety, service as is too often the case. They should not be forced to think more like a sales person than a public servant. . It shouldn’t be a surprise that the prospect of police departments generating revenue would seem like a great idea to municipal leaders and to the police leadership. Ast the ability to achieve promotiopnal goals is significantly driven by having the monetary resources available to do so.

.

During the financial crisis, Provincial, federal and local budgets are hit hard. The pain of tight budgets has been felt across the board in many jurisdictions and the resources available to police departments fell, requiring changes like service and staff cuts.” . Yes the citiens rightfully do the government, police, courts, to be effective at minimal cost, thereby limiting the burden of taxes on the public. But Citizens “wouldn’t expect other public mission agencies—the public health department, for example—to become profit centers, and we shouldn’t expect that from law enforcement.” . A Perceptions of police officers as merely collection agents rather than public protectors cannot help but undermine that legitimacy and trust. Too many citizens have lost confidence in the police amd the justice systems. .

.

It is too common for small towns even like Canmore Alberta  to falsely raise revenues from traffic enforcement…Watch out for the RCMP speed trap in Canmore , Alberta as you leave Banff park.. it generates the RCMP millions and millions of dollars per year.  ( Revenue generating ) “Speed limits in the mountain parks are set with an eye toward preventing collisions with wildlife.” ( and how often does that occur? once a year?).  Canmore  the home of the perverse Canmore Traffic court, and RCMP  traffic ticket revenue generation as I have already written about.   Police do love to lie and say that all accidents are mostly speed related, to justify their fat cow cash grabs, especially in Alberta and in Ontario now too.. they lump all of their homemade statistics as the accidents, deaths related all to speeding.. but not in reality to drunk driver, bad drivers, road rage, poor roads, bad snow cleaning..  This is also still simply not acceptable. There is a direct link between DRIVING and collisions. The MORE you drive, the more likely you are to be involved in a collision and the more likely you are to get seriously hurt . So the police will now give tickets to all drivers   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/watch-out-for-the-money-making-speed-traps/ .

.

About the municipalities and their false collection of revenue through traffic fines these municipalities “victimize those whom they are designed to protect.” and these practices are “immoral.”  The additional taxation of the citizens through traffic enforcement is unacceptable even if it s falsely being carried out Canada wide. What’s the point of fining people for violating the rules of the road? Surely it is to ensure motorists are driving safely and not endangering others. That obvious point, it seems, is lost on Canada’s municipal and provincial governments, which are increasingly treating traffic tickets as just another source of revenue http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comment/national-post-view-raising-revenue-on-the-roads .

.

About 10 years ago, police charged an Alberta driver with careless driving for flashing his headlights at oncoming drivers to warn them of a speed trap ahead. The driver fought the ticket. At trial, the Crown argued that flashing high beams was dangerous because it might startle other drivers thereby distracting them and causing accidents. The judge wasn’t buying that. He ruled that drivers flashed their lights at one another for plenty of reasons, some of which enhanced safety — such as reminding another motorist to dim his brights. Besides, the judge added, the government’s principal purpose in setting up speed traps was to ensure drivers operated their vehicles at a safe rate of speed. It was not to raise money through fines. So since light-flashing motorists served the same purpose as government speed traps — keeping traffic within the speed limit — the government had no authority to end the practice of one driver giving another a heads-up. http://www.edmontonsun.com/2014/10/23/revenue-crucial-for-photo-radar-gunter .

and the abuses go on and on..

Haste makes waste: cutting speed boosts drivers’ life expectancy: study  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100201/national/speeding_life_expectancy
Most accidents are caused by drunk driving and the doctor does not mention this still?? what was that? he was paid by the liquor industry not to? or was he  PAID BY MONEY MAKING REVENUE COPS TO SAY SPEED ALONE MAINLY KILLS.. HOW ABSURD.. THIS Canadian doctor.. and not a Canadian Traffic engineer uses now US statistics ONLY to say speed alone kills? and he what HE THUS HAD considered also the number of drunk, impaired, road rage  drivers, that seem to increase very year as a fact for most of the deaths NO MATTER WHAT THE SPEED?  or what this did not bother him.. only the number of people who speed?  SPEED IS A MAIN FACTOR IN 5 TO 15 PERCENT OF THE ACCIDENTS.. AND WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF THE ACCIDENTS? THE 85 PERCENT.. it SEEMS THE DOCTORS IN UNITED KINGDOM CONTRADICT THIS CANADIAN DOCTOR IN THEIR TRAFFIC ACCIDENT STUDIES TOO.. SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?  Preposterous COOKED results.. NOW get real..
  .
Now we know that more people have accident due to road rage, impaired driving, driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol  over speeding too and we still do need to review how much time and resources do the police deal with that firstly? “  
  .
and read what I think about Alberta’s too often bad cops too
 .
 I wonder also if a realistic poll would be taken of the RCMP as to what it would show now as well?
 .
For example do you think the RCMP can be trusted to investigate it’s own officers, personnel for wrong doings?

Dedicated to Ostriches

(Mat 16:22 KJV)  Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
 
(Mat 18:7 KJV)  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
 
(Gal 6:7 KJV)  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
 
One of the most serious religious tragedy I have encountered in the last 5  decades is the ostrich Christianity, that contradicts the Bible..
 
There are various forms of this ostrich Christianity such as :
-You shall not judge,
-God is merciful, forgiving
-We live in the period of grace
-God will forgive all sins
 

 
but here again is what the Bible actually says
 
(John 5:14 KJV)  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
 
(John 8:11 KJV)  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
 
(1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10   Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
 
(Mat 18:15 KJV)  Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
16  But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
17  And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as a heathen man and a publican.
18  Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
 
(Luke 17:3 KJV)  Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
 
(Phil 2:15 KJV)  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
 
(Mat 10:36 KJV)  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
 
(Luke 12:15 KJV)  And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
 
(1 Tim 5:20 KJV)  Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
 
(2 Tim 4:2 KJV)  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
 
(Titus 1:13 KJV)  This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
 
(Titus 2:15 KJV)  These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
 
(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 
(Luke 12:57 KJV)  Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
 
(John 7:24 KJV)  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
 
(Rom 2:16 KJV)  In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
 
(1 Cor 5:12 KJV)  For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
 
(1 Cor 6:2 KJV)  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
 
(1 Cor 6:3 KJV)  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
 
(1 Cor 6:5 KJV)  I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
 
(1 Cor 11:31 KJV)  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
 
(1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
 
(Heb 10:30 KJV)  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
 
(Heb 13:4 KJV)  Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
 
(Rev 19:11 KJV)  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
 
Both Pentecostals- Charismatic and  Evangelical Christians it seems still do bad things, and they are too slow to repent of their sins.. but so was King David now too. but he too did not get away with it.. God dealt with  him on it too.

Now Dispensationalists, Fundamentalist have also been too often known to have missed the boat, been wrong on their preachy interpretations, predictions too.

When Will Jesus Christ Return? What Jesus and the Bible have to say.. what you are really  like when he comes back is the important issue too..
 
“Modern-day “prophets” are a dime-a-dozen. In fact, there are more false prophets and false teachers now than in any time in the history of the world. One thing they have in common is prophecies concerning visitations from Christ and His second coming.
 
What would you say if a person told you that: Jesus Christ physically appeared to me last night and said His second coming will be one year from today(?).
 
Answer: Which Jesus? The Bible warns Christians about the counterfeit Jesus (Galatians 1:6-9; 2 Corinthians 11:3-4), and that Satan appears as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). Therefore, which is more important; what people say, or what Jesus and the Bible teach?
 
If the person says, Jesus and the Bible, then share what Jesus and the Bible have to say in the following Scriptures:
 
Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him (Matthew 24:23).
 
So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them (Matthew 24:26). 
 
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone (Matthew 24:36).
 
Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming (Matthew 24:42).
 
For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will (Matthew 24;44).
 
But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone (Mark 13:32).
 
He said to them, It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority (Acts 1:7).
 
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up (2 Peter 3:10).
 
For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night (1 Thessalonians 5:2).
 
Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen (Revelation 1:7).
 
So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you (Revelation 3:3).
 
Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame (Revelation 16:15).
 
And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and  a cloud received Him out of their sight. And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. They also said, Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven (Acts 1:9-11).
 
Although many modern-day prophets have tried and failed miserably, no man or woman knows when Jesus Christ will return. However, Jesus Christ will return:
 
Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also (John 14:1-3).
 
But for the time being, Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven:
 
So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God (Mark 16:19).

Generally these days it is the wife who wrongfully files for divorce,and  before that it used to be the men.  These days the too often dirty lawyers who make blood money from divorce, are wolves in sheep clothing now picturing them slves and  the spouse to the courts, as good persons, decent, honest, relaible, falsely claiming her now to be a totally good , honest person, and not another typical  liar too.
 
The lawyers who tend to be too often liars themselves they like to present the female spouse before the Queen’s courts, before the supposedly reputable judge, who in my witness, experiences actual too often is also now a liar, pretender himself, a person  who does not get off the bench cause he is too lazy to ascertain the truth of the facts being presented to him or her.
 
The lawyers like to present the wife as a decent, respected, good, moral person who now has provided faithfully  for her husband, she did not, does not abuse any them not even her bad  husband, she does not cheat, lie or steal now as well.
 
The still mostly  liars like to present her as an a good person, whereas more likely in reality  she also is another demon. In fact men and women tend to be equal sinners, before God and man. In fact the same spouse she likely has slandered, lied, committed adultery, even stole from her spouse and now she will keep on lying, perjuring herself hoping next to get a good alimony support from her spouse.
 
Many a person  when they see these people divorcing they really tend next not to recognize them and their behavior, for it clearly is different from what they had known before, were used too in fact.  
 
All of a sudden clearly new now  openly monsters here have arisen.  In reality  the wife is not the mostly   innocent, the sole injured party and the husband is not the sole bad guy, villain too.
 
All of these mostly immoral,  lying now people, pastors too often now too, bad spouses, bad laywers, bad judges tend to first need decent, real, pastoral counseling themselves.
 
  Christian Lies, Divorce And/or  Christian Divorce  Remarriage, (as well as adultery, fornication , Alcoholism, drugs, smoking, gays)  In the Christian Church are ALL still unacceptable.

Traffic accidents

   1afuture11
An Australian study estimates that about  half of all traffic accidents in Australia may be due to road rage and most of  the others related to alcohol, impaired driving and yet the police falsely  tend to pursue revenue generating speeding traffic tickets still and  why? 
 
 Road rage is a relatively serious act;  it can  be seen as a violation of human and property rights , an  endangerment of  other’s personal well being, security.  Now we know that more  people have accident due to road rage, impaired driving, driving under the  influence of drugs, alcohol  over speeding too and we still do need to  review how much time and resources do the police deal with that  firstly? ” he ” official statistics  showed that only five per cent of crashes are caused by drivers breaking the  speed limit. Drivers who let their attention wander cause more than six times  as many accidents.” Driver error accounted for 66 per cent of accidents..  and add the road rage, impaired, drunk drivers, bad poorly maintained  vehicles to that too .. Most reasonable and  reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now  too.   
 
The insurance industry itself too  often sleeps with  legislators, cops because it wants to make loads of money by finding out  reasons not to pay out as well.. they support traffic tickets even though they  do not reduce the car accidents significantly cause it gives more money to the  insurance firms,  this is immoral gouging of consumers too often rather  too.. now what about having some honest watchdogs and legislators rather. Go  after the drunk drivers, raise the price of the booze firstly..  SEE ALSO http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/24/research-on-real-world-behavior-crash-factors
 
 Hey even  many cops are lazy, they also do want to be paid  for doing nothing, but merely driving around , speeding too for they get a  rush doing this as  I  have often  witnessed it myself. Too bad  for them they are paid to work still too. Maybe we can outlaw citizens driving  any cars all together that way the cops and legislators too can still   get paid and not have much to do.
 
Even Premier Dalton McGuinty  at it again?.. Premier Dalton  McGuinty says he won’t be forcing Ontario motorists to use snow tires during  the winter.  not following the lead of Quebec, which introduced mandatory  snow tire legislation.. so he uses another back door.. that will costs the  citizens a lot more money… liability legislation today under the Highway  Traffic Act to hold the supposedly irresponsible drivers accountable,,  Shortage of governmental money means rather  another hidden Ontario tax  too.
 
 
A study of the  figures in the British Medical Journal showed a  gap between police  and hospital data  showed a wide divergence in these figures    said one of the authors of the article, Mike Gill, professor of  public health at Surrey University. The Police are known  to lie, and   they try to please their political bosses , to get a raise by generating  revenue from traffic tickets. 
 
  I call  Commissioner Julian Fantino a liar and I do ask him SPECIFICALLY to prove with  Honourable statistics  that at least 40 per cent of the ROAD crashes are  caused SOLELY because car drivers, truck drivers  are going too fast  in poor road conditions, unrelated to any other factors now  too. We all can play on  statistics anyway we want, but let’s us have the whole truth rather  here  too..
 
“The Canadian Press  TORONTO – The head of the Ontario Provincial Police says drivers who crash in  bad weather because of their own negligence should have to pay the bill.   Commissioner Julian Fantino will propose absolute liability legislation today  under the Highway Traffic Act to hold irresponsible drivers accountable. This  essentially means making drivers pay for accidents in which they were driving  aggressively in poor weather, not insurance companies  Fantino says at  least 40 per cent of crashes are caused because people are going too fast in  poor conditions and not paying attention.  He says his proposal targets  people “who could care less” about how they are driving when the roads are  bad.   Fantino says his proposal mirrors laws currently on the books  in almost every state in the U.S.” 
 
 Many people Canada wide do now often  complain about still being harassed, bullied by Traffic cops and getting  unnecessary traffic tickets, especially it seems in Ontario, Alberta too. Cops  are no angels themselves for sure.  
 
It also seems that  the statistical  numbers  for drunk drivers, accidents too  are still startling, too  high — and split it seems almost evenly for inside the main cities and in the  outlying area where there is less policing too. —   While maybe the  police, RCMP may  have a strong feel for the trends on the roads, for  speeding, accidents, drunk driving and the impaired numbers maybe are  still not causing the police great concern, due to their own priorities and  even due to the differing, often in a not fully reliable way that  the Police, accident data is collected year to year, Canada wide now too,  still the  actual Police statistical values, comparisons are very  difficult,  erroneous still and these statistics reporting they need to  be seriously improved, and the Police themselves even better  managed. 
 
Now do you really  think that the the majority of the police  who  now are one of  the highest paid professionals are firstly doing their Jobs cause they really  firstly serving,  are looking after the good welfare of the citizens as  they often lie to us and claim they do .. and not cause of the monetary job,  fringe benefits ? I would not bet on it not  even on your  life..   “In reality the  too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police,  and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians  really do  not care about the citizens good welfare but only their  own”
  
 
Now I have  said it for over 3 decades in writing to all too so now call it what you want  but police services generally  it is not about public safety, for it  is  a self employment, empire  building, a false money grab, revenue  generation, hidden taxes..  for if  the cops, the mad RCMP   were now really worried about public safety THEY WOULD FIRSTLY ARREST THEIR  OWN KIND, THE BAD COPS WHO OFTEN DRIVE HOME DRUNK AFTER WORK, COMING HOME FROM  THE POLICE TAVERN, and they would ALSO FIRSTLY  go after the people who  drive reckless, who  fail to stop at the stop signs, or the   traffic stop lights, and go seriously after the impaired drunken  drivers, deal with the unsafe cars whose brakes are squealing cause they need  to be repaired.. etc. Cops , civil and public servants too often become  perverse persons, unacceptable bullies still too. You and I still do not have  to accept such crap.
 
 Despite plunging sales  in almost every sector, alcohol sales are on the rise in Ontario, British  Columbia and in other provinces over last year . If you drive at twice  the legal alcohol limit you are at least 30 times more likely to cause a road  crash than a driver who hasn’t been drinking. 
Nearly twice as many liquor stores,  relatively cheap booze and a pricing system that effectively discounts drinks  with more alcohol are contributing to a rise in hazardous drinking, says  B.C.’s provincial health officer. The same is true in Alberta and other  provinces. 
 
More drunk drivers,   motorists are hitting the sauce before hitting the road this holiday  season too. About 1 percent of  the drivers stopped are  charged  with impaired driving offences during the generally only one  month long  Police province wide drunk drivers check stop campaigns .  Sadly there are plenty more drivers who often still do drank like fish   get away during the rest of the year due to the limited number of  police officers participating in check stops the rest of the year. We do  thus know that very few of the actual people who are impaired and on the roads  are caught by police. “The average person who is prepared to drive while  impaired will do it about 80 times a year, repeat offenders causing the  most problems.” “Drunk drivers are still; not  getting the  message, quite frankly, “The average blood-alcohol  reading of those charged was .165, twice the legal limit of .08. The highest  reading was .25, more than three times the limit, ” The  drivers range between 19 and 59 years old. The average age is 35 but a dozen  are over 40. (Older drivers) too seem to be more set in their habits  and  risk-takers also tend to be   resistant to all education  campaigns,” And during the same period over generally ten times more  people now are being charged with failing to to wear seatbelts and Highway  Traffic Act offences over impaired driving, even though it is drunk drivers,   that causes many of the accidents?  All now still  Unsatisfactory.

 

 

 

 

 

More alcohol use is a concern for health-care professionals, since it means  more deaths, illness, injuries and hospital visits, meaning added strain on  the health-care system, and additional cost. “There’s 60 different ways in which alcohol can cause premature death and  illness,” 
   

 PS: Look at this, due to the undeniable Recession, budget and tax cuts,  Municipalities across Canada have  been cutting back even on their services, snow clearing now too, which has been leading up to more car accidents, and cause the police cannot tell the truth about their employers, the police now lie, and divert the truth, saying that speeding vehicles were the cause of most of the accidents. In reality now also  speeding also still is not the main reasons for accidents but driving while impaired is..  

  

Here there are 2 main concerns, issues
1: The rising alcohol consumption, and the rising taxpayer’s costs of alcohol related sickness, accidents
2: The  still inadequate police, RCMP response to impaired drivers, year around.

Paradoxically, despite all the dangers, warnings

Paradoxically, despite all the dangers, warnings ,  most people continue to drink beyond safe levels on a weekly basis that is more than 14 units of alcohol for women and 21 units for men. At the heart of this strange contradiction is a false belief, best encapsulated by the former Prime Minister in his introduction to the first national alcohol strategy. In the document, Tony Blair assured readers that “alcohol misuse by a small minority” was responsible for the rising levels of social and health harm. In short, problem drinkers are “other people”, spoiling it for the rest of us. In reality this is not so.. Drinking alcohol  has become too common amongst too many people.
 
Holiday stress, along with getting laid off, has caused too many a person to start drinking heavily and this situation is not unusual.. Sadly when most people think about the upcoming holidays, they think about friends, family, food and good cheer. And for many people, the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s are still particularly difficult. Financial problems are tough to handle for most people at any time, but they can seem overwhelming during this season of giving. Due to unresolved stress Feelings of loneliness, isolation and despair may also intensify but alcohol and drugs are never the answer still. Unfortunately, your friend’s   Many people turn to alcohol falsely believing that it helps them to relax and to cope with stress and worry. And because many people think that New Year’s Eve and similar occasions must always be celebrated with alcohol, it’s often readily available, providing another excuse to drink. It actually will likely cause more problems, and not effectively deal with the ones still not resolved Many people next tend to go to excess, extremes, and   drinking larger amounts of alcohol can increase the risk of a deadly form of liver damage called cirrhosis, heart disease, some types of cancer and injuries. And even moderate drinking can often have harmful consequences in the wrong setting, such as one should not    drink and drive, and drinking alcohol during a pregnancy may  seriously harm a developing baby. Alcohol dependence, also called alcoholism, often  means that if a person tries to stop or cut back on drinking, he or she may experience anxiety, sweating, trembling, trouble sleeping, nausea and vomiting. Drinking can be risky even for people who aren’t dependent on it. It may seriously still interfere with sleep and productivity, strain close relationships and get in the way of spending time with loved ones. It not only also puts the drinker at risk for becoming alcohol dependent as well as developing alcohol-related health problems. Too many people who really do now suffer from a drinking problem claim still don’t believe that anything is wrong. They faley try to justify that they’re drinking to cope with a particularly stressful time. In their mind, suppposedly the basic stress is the unresolved problem, not the drinking. They say they can stop drinking whenever they want, but they don’t. Two wrongs do nto make one right here too.  Denial is a common obstacle that prevents many people from seeking help.
 
It’s also worrying that motorists are continuing to ignore the drink-drive message. ‘The anti-drinking and driving message has to be got across, not just at this time of year but at all times.’ ‘There is no safe option to drink alcohol if you’re planning on getting behind the wheel.  ‘There is also no fail-safe guide as to how to stay under the legal drink drive limit – that’s why we are urging people to not drink at all if they have a vehicle with them.
 
“Make a choice and stick to it – drink or drive. “Don’t drink and drive,”  If you drive at twice the legal alcohol limit you are at least 30 times more likely to cause a road crash than a driver who hasn’t been drinking. If you plan to drive the only safe option is not to drink. Drivers’ reaction times and motoring skills deteriorate after even a small amount of alcohol – and get worse with increased alcohol consumption. If you are convicted for a drink-driving offence you will have a criminal record, lose your licence for a minimum of one year, may go to prison for up to six months, may have to pay a significant fine  and you may have difficulty hiring a car within 10 years of your conviction. If you are convicted of causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink you face up to 14 years in prison, an unlimited fine and a minimum two-year driving ban. Other consequences include:
-facing exceptionally high insurance costs once you get your licence back.
-loss of a job (15 per cent of those convicted do), legal expenses and loss of personal transport and increased travel expenses.
-living with the knowledge that your irresponsibility has caused death, injury or severe distress to innocent people.

 
 
 A research report providing results from a survey of adult drinking in Northern Ireland has been published .
 
Reality too many of the binge drinkers., if not already are likely to become hard core alcoholics.
 

 

The survey, conducted on behalf of the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety, examines the amount people drink, when, where and what they drink and who they drink with.

 It also examines how drinking behaviours vary across different sections of the public, the proportion of people who binge drink, problem drinking, and perceptions of drinking.

Key Findings

The key findings relating to the Adult Drinking Patterns Survey in Northern Ireland 2008 are:

* More than seven in ten (72%) adults drink alcohol.

* A larger proportion of males (74%) than females (70%) drink alcohol.

* Most drinking occurs over the weekend and peaks on Saturdays.

* The most common drink consumed is wine (50%), closely followed by beer (48%).

* Most of those who drank in the week prior to the survey had consumed alcohol at home (64%), and nearly one quarter (24%) had consumed alcohol in a pub.

* More than four in five (81%) respondents had exceeded the recommended daily limits during the week prior to the survey.

* Approximately four in five males (79%) and females (83%) exceed their recommended daily limits during the week prior to the survey.

* Nearly one quarter (24%) of respondents drank above the weekly sensible levels.

* Over one quarter (26%) of male respondents and over one fifth (22%) of female respondents drank above the weekly sensible levels in the week prior to the survey.

* Nearly a third (32%) of those who drank in the week before the survey had engaged in at least one binge drinking session.

* Males (35%) were more likely than females (29%) to binge drink.

* Over half (54%) of drinkers aged 18-29 years engaged in at least one binge drinking session in the week prior to the survey, and they are more likely to binge drink than respondents in the older groups.

* One in 10 respondents (10%) of those who drank in the week prior to the survey are highly likely to have a problem with alcohol, according to the CAGE analysis.

* Over half (56%) of those who consumed alcohol in the week prior to the survey considered themselves to be light drinkers, two in five (40%) considered themselves to be moderate drinkers and 4% considered themselves to be heavy drinkers.

Comparisons between 2005 and 2008 are:

* The proportion of adults who drank above the weekly sensible levels in the week prior to the survey significantly decreased from 29% in 2005 to 24% in 2008.

* The proportion of adults who engaged in at least one binge drinking session in the week prior to the survey significantly decreased from 38% in 2005 to 32% in 2008.

 

 

 

 

 
Attitudes To Alcohol Must Change. A health Minister  has called for a change in attitudes towards alcohol by both the public and the drinks industry all year now too. Statistics which show an increase of in the number of people   binge drinking, getting drunk  and that the statistics also show that we still have a long way to deal with this major problem. 81% of people who choose to drink are still exceeding the recommended daily limits. The cost of alcohol misuse to our society is very real. In just over 10 years, there has been a startling 86% increase in the numbers of people dying due to alcohol related harm. “Now, more than ever, we should all be working together to really tackle this issue head on and I believe the drinks industry has a key role to play. Supermarkets in particular sell alcohol far too cheaply. I am extremely disappointed that despite having met with each of the major supermarkets, and received their personal assurances that they take this matter extremely seriously, those words have not as yet translated into meaningful action. “On the contrary, they are flooded with festive drinks promotions that will only encourage people to indulge further in binge drinking. This, in my view, is totally unacceptable.   Action speaks louder than words. On this occasion, profit is being put before public health.”  “The harsh reality is that although alcohol misuse is known to be damaging and harmful to health and well-being, many people still drink to excess. This must change, and in this respect we all have a collective responsibility in tackling this issue – individuals, society, government and the drinks industry alike.”    http://www.emaxhealth.com/2/63/27952/attitudes-alcohol-must-change.html

 

People are drinking more alcohol in many societies than ever before. In the UK, Ireland, Denmark, and increasingly Australia, young people drink more alcohol than those in the USA, France, and other Mediterranean countries. The way in which adolescents drink in different countries also varies. Frequency of drinking, regular drunkenness, binge drinking, and being drunk before the age of 13 years, are all indicators of an unhealthy pattern of alcohol misuse that is becoming more common. So, for example, 27% of UK 15-year-olds admit to drinking at least five drinks in a row in the past 30 days compared with 22% in 1995; in girls, as many as 29% binge drink. In the USA, 19% of 15-year-olds binge drink. Accidental death, self-harm, suicide, injury, violent behaviour, unprotected sex, alcohol dependence, and liver disease can all result. Nearly half of the alcohol drunk by these young people comes from the family home. Supermarkets, local shops, off-licences, pubs, and clubs provide the rest.  http://madhavgopalkrish.wordpress.com/2008/03/22/more-young-people-drink-more/?referer=sphere_related_content/
 
“Reality too many of the binge drinkers., if not already are likely to become hard core alcoholics. The real problem of alcohol misuse was much wider than previously thought   We are drinking more now than we have ever done since before the First World War.
 Perhaps the most worrying aspect of all is  the frightening age shift in alcohol use. A generation or two ago, the first experiments with binge drinking were at university or during National Service. The “victims” of those generations who started drinking in their late teens and 20s were perhaps better able to cope with the consequences than 10-14 year-olds today.
 The international evidence is quite clear that the health consequences of alcohol misuse are closely linked to a nation’s total alcohol consumption and the main drivers of this are price and availability.

For liver disease and other medical conditions, there can be a time lag of 10 or more years from the onset of serious drinking to reaping the consequences. Now we are seeing patients, particularly women, in their 20s with advanced alcoholic liver disease – a real tragedy for their family as well as themselves.”

President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration

The US congressional committee handling the arrangements for President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration has released the program for the event which will include   Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and Joseph Lowery, former head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Invocation
Dr. Rick Warren, Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA

Dr. Rick Warren founded Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, in 1980 with one family. Today, it is an evangelical congregation averaging 22,000 weekly attendees, a 120-acre campus, and has more than 300 community ministries to groups such as prisoners, CEOs, addicts, single parents, and those with HIV/AIDS. He also leads the Purpose Driven Network of churches, a global coalition of congregations in 162 countries. TIME magazine named him one of “15 World Leaders Who Mattered Most in 2004,” and in 2005 one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World.” Arole that positions Mr. Warren to succeed Billy Graham as the nation’s pre-eminent minister and reflects the generational changes in the evangelical Christian movement.

 Benediction
The Reverend Dr. Joseph E. Lowery

The Reverend Dr. Joseph E. Lowery, considered the dean of the civil rights movement, co-founded along with Martin Luther King, Jr., the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and served as president and chief executive officer from 1977 to January 15, 1998. He served as pastor of Atlanta’s oldest predominantly Black United Methodist congregation, Central Methodist Gardens for 18 years, and as pastor of Cascade United Methodist Church from 1986 to 1992

Liberal groups criticized the inclusion of Warren, whose “Purpose Driven Life” books and lectures have made his church among the largest in the country. Rick Warren  is an early taste of the President-elect Barack Obama’s  post-election effort to reach evangelical Americans. The effort continues even though Obama’s evangelical offensive during the presidential campaign yielded only modest results on Election Day. Earlier this year, as the debate over same-sex marriage raged in California, Warren publicly endorsed Proposition 8, which amends the state Constitution to declare that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”   Wow this honeymoon is ending before it ever started… at least for the gay  community.  His selection has drawn criticisms from liberals, including the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization. Rick Warren is a slap in the face to every member of the LGBT community and their straight friends. This is offensive.   Obama knows he has liberals in his pocket, and he no longer has to pay lip service to them. What are liberals going to do about it? Vote Republican? Or pray about it too?

Rejoice, young man in your youth; and

 
(Eccl 1:9 KJV)  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
 
(Eccl 1:10 KJV)  Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
 
(Eccl 1:13 KJV)  And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.
 
(Eccl 1:14 KJV)  I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
 
(Eccl 1:15 KJV)  That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
 
(Eccl 1:17 KJV)  And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
 
(Eccl 1:18 KJV)  For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
 
 Ignorance is no bliss or an excuse.. when you get older, you start to see that there is nothing new under the sun, including sinful human behavior.. I often see you men describing their unrepentant rage, sins against God, and still trying to justify it by saying God does not exist and we are not accountable to him.. but even death alone proves we are accountable for we do  not live forever on earth.
 
(Heb 9:27 KJV)  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
 
(Heb 9:28 KJV)  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
 
(Eccl 11:9 KJV)  Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. 10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.
 
(Eccl 12:1 KJV)  Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2   While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:  3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, 4  And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought low; 5  Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets: 6Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. 7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. 8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.
 
(Eccl 12:12 KJV)  And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
 
(Eccl 12:13 KJV)  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
 
(Eccl 12:14 KJV)  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
