If Ye Love one Another

Affection, good will, love, benevolence, brotherly love. This is the definition Blue Letter Bible gives the highest form of love in the Bible. It has also been called selfless or sacrificial love and John 15:13 proves this to be correct. Love is an action and Jesus made His statement then backed it up by dying for the world. 
  I was struck by how often the the phrase 'If ye love one other' is mentioned while going through the Gospel of John

John 13:34 (KJV) A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love oneanother
John 15:12 (KJV) This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
John 15:17 (KJV) These things I command you, that ye love one another.
John 13:35 (KJV) By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

There are more but I focused on this last verse for a moment. If evidence for being disciples or Christians is that I love people and I fail to do that, then I can be judged as potentially not being a Christian. Scripture interprets Scripture and I know I can indeed be judged because 1 John 4:7 (KJV) says Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. Many times in my life, I have given people just cause and the right to judge me. 
 There are two commandments that were violated. 

  • The greatest commandment. Failure to love God
  • Failure to love my neighbor
Also committed were two abominations. Literally a disgusting thing.

  • Pride
  • Sowing discord among the bretheren
How did I do that? I thought I was something special. In the name of being a leader (which I had no right to be since I did not know how to follow) I took and demanded control. Everywhere. I told myself I was not in the world to be liked and that God was a God of order, therefore peoples opinions didnt matter. When I arrived at the Antanta City Baptist Rescue Mission, I advertised myself as a cross between two TV show characters. House and Gordon Ramsey. Despite the fact I was penniless in a homeless shelter and one of the staff at the Mission was a 70 year old no-nonsense Vietnam war vet who had two theological degrees and was the strictest member of staff. I should have gotten put out several times. He turned out to be the most influential person there. One of his quotes was 'Who are we to  deny God the relationship He desires to have with us by sinning'. Now that's tough. That's a stomp and a half 
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 

It's true. I am just a sinner saved by grace. I've left a trail of destruction in my life and hurt people. For that I am sorry. And one day I hope to not only tell people individually but show them I mean it. Love is not some cute cuddly thing. It's action. Action i'm sometimes not sure of but one thing I do know. The Holy Spirit will show me through His word.

My return and my confession

Well as a few have seen, I'm back online. Some of you may think highly of me. You shouldn't. I'm nothing but a pharisee and a hypocrite and fraud. Or was. I debated theology like I knew something and I did. In my head. There was no heart in it and it was not lead by the Holy Spirit.
  I was in fact a cussing, smoking, bad tempered rebel who had only the thinnest veil of godliness. For a long time I was a terrible flirt, carrying on highly inappropriate conversations with females and was a hater. I hated on and bashed people daily. If not a liberal but someone I disagreed with or even somebody who did something I considered stupid.
  The only way I realized I was saved was God chastised me and turned my human greatness into nothing. From 2014 till now, I've lived in homeless shelters. One of them in Seattle was frequented by felons, sex offenders and drug addicts.
  Even loving God is a daily battle as my pride keeps rearing it's ugly head. That's being real. I thank God He loves me or I'd be in hell right now.

Offline for 6 months

Hey y'all! Just wanted people to know, I will be offline till July. I've decided to join an intense 6 month discipleship program run by the Atlanta Baptist Rescue Mission. This mission is owned and operated by Kings Way Church. There is no usable wi-fi on the premises and getting out will be extremely sporadic at best. Additionally, I will not be able to maintain the cellphone, so operating on 4G is out of the question. Since 2014, I have been going from place to place in various missions with zero long term plan that has been even slightly successful. This is the plan to end that. This has been posted 24 hours before I go offline. in a genuine life and death emergency, I can be reached via the mission phone number, but this is not to be used for anything but a life threatening emergency. I can still be reached by old fashioned snail mail. The address is 316 Peters Street Atlanta, GA 30313.

Naturally neither the Conservative Broadcast Facebook page, nor my social network profiles and Messenger will not be updated or monitored during this time.

A look back on Seattle

I arrived in Seattle at the end of 2014 and what a time it has been. From getting a real good picture of the homeless situation in the city, to seeing and hearing liberal ideology firsthand.

On the plus side, I went to my first Planned Parenthood protest as well as went to Farestart, which gave me the foundation for doing work in the culinary industry. Since then I've gone to multiple protests and worked the dishpits of several restaurants. There have been good times

And utterly infuriating times

But I have no complaints. It taught me a lot. When all is said and done, it doesn't matter what happens to us on this earth for it is temporary and is passing away. My God shall supply my needs and will work all things together for good. As I start this chapter in a new city and state, that is and will be, the only thing that should and will keep me going

Goodbye Everybody

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodby! The time has come to leave Seattle. Leave the city that is on a fast tract to utter destruction. Super high housing prices and a $15 minimum wage being rolled out in stages means that even a single room in the city costs $600 a month. This is with rising homelessness and a Mayor that is simply making things up as he goes along and is doing nothing good. But where am I going? What will I do? In answer to that first question, the answer is:

Yes, I am moving there. In fact by the time, this gets published, everybody on Facebook will have seen my travels. Initially, I didnt think I knew anybody locally but it turns out there is a pastor nearby who used to be at my parents church. There is also another church right in the city run by a Bob Jones University graduate. And of course my siblings are studying at BJU. The real reason for moving to Atlanta specifically is because of an insane situation.

Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless is a low barrier shelter, that has been harassed, and terrorized for years. The city is now taking initial steps to have it forcibly taken from it's owners by eminent domain. Now of course anybody with morals knows, this is theft and completely unacceptable. Initially I will be living right among them, but, there are several places I can transfer to, Including Atlanta Mission and a couple others. At the same time, I will be networking with local groups to patrol the area in a Neighborhood watch type system that has strong vibes of the numerous citizen Militias dotted around the country. The main point will be to advocate for those unable to do so. The idea that people without a home can be tossed here and there, rejects of society is horrifying and those that can be helped, should be taught to be independent, stand on their own two feet and not need to have their hand out, needing government assistance and shelters.
  The second task is public servant accountability. We see extremes all over the place. Either corruption, excusing terrible crimes and Constitutional violations, or we see hate. Anybody who says all cops should die, is a dangerous man. No, they should not. They should be made to be accountable if and when they forget their duties as public servants, or if they choose to violate a citizens Constitutional rights. The courts have long said, one is innocent until proven guilty and so do. I will be updating people via the blog until I have a local Facebook page set up and continuing to update people from here.
  This isnt going to be easy. Quite the contrary. The Taskforce has been plagued by crime and i'm going to be starting up a citizen led patrol group. While I do insist on the accountability of public servants and have no issue with active resistance to Constitutional violations, it is still the police who have to come and arrest the drug dealers and those who choose to fight in the street. For more information on the situation, this article dated December 28th has the basic idea. I fly out early morning on January 27th.

President Trump: Should a Christian Rejoice?

Dear Christian,

As the reality of a Trump presidency sinks in, the question I have is should we rejoice? Should we rejoice that a pathological liar was prevented from leading our country? Should we rejoice that a woman who believes we should have the right to murder the unborn hours from birth, didn't get her way? Should we rejoice that a person who made it clear she would spit on our Second Amendment rights, it not able to go through with her crimes? Absolutely not!

As Christians, everything we do must represent Christ as His ambassadors. Trump has made it clear, by his actions, he is not a godly man. He owns casinos, was divorced three times and claims he does not need to ask forgiveness. We by our vote claim that God approves of this behavior and attitude, when He clearly doesn't. We have misrepresented our God, failed in our Christian duty and now we're patting ourselves on the back because we thwarted a traitor from becoming President. Yet again, we have compromised and failed.

We are comfortable in our nice, safe churches. We go to Bible studies, attend services, run programs and while the converts may not be 'twice the sons of hell' that the Pharisees converts were, the principle is the same. They are converted to mediocrity. To compromise, to making do. We are not even under any real persecution and already we cannot vote for a godly man. We are as the church in Ephesus. Cold, lethargic and we as a nation deserve a person like Clinton. Oh yes, I was expecting Clinton to win as Judgement for our neglect of our duty as Christians and Americans. Yet once again, God showed us mercy and it is of His mercy that we are not consumed. And yet it will be a miracle if even one person is sorry for their behavior. While we decry liberals, when we are confronted, we will cry like one and make excuses. There are none. God will not accept excuses when we stand before Him, we will simply be judged. I will not rejoice with you. I am ashamed.
