Parenting the Old Fashioned Way

2 Comments

A few years ago I was taking my then 3-year-old grandson down to the lake to fish. A man approached me from our condo association and struck up a conversation that went on for about twenty minutes. My grandson patiently sat down on the grass and uttered not a word other than to say hello to the man and tell him his name. At the end of our conversation the man commented on my grandson’s patience. I replied that he was being trained to not interrupt and to wait patiently until the adults were finished talking. The man marveled that it was even possible to train a three-year-child patience and to not interrupt.

Don’t be a Wackaroo

Have you ever been so angry you threw something against a wall or smashed it on the floor?

Sadly, I have and most of you probably have as well.

It’s a human problem that dates back to the days of Cain and Abel. Cain was so jealous and angry with Abel that he killed him, probably with a rock or club to the head.

Some of you may be saying there is a big difference between smashing something against a wall and killing someone.

You would be right; there is a big difference…in consequence.

Three times in 10 verses Jesus tells us not to worry. (Matt. 6:25-34)

So, why do I worry from time to time and what do I worry about?

Father’s: Disciple Your Children or Someone Else Will

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger,
but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4  NASB

A link to Al Mohler’s The Briefing led to an article titled Four-Year-Olds Discuss Love and Marriage at rethinkingschools.org.

The author of the article is an educator who works with four-year-olds and observes their conversations.

fathersThe author remarks that four-year-olds discuss things about love and marriage, no doubt parroting what they’ve heard from parents and others.

So What if Abortion Ends a Life

2 Comments

This entry is a slight departure from my focus on Discipleship Counseling within the church.

In 2007 my church at the time sent a group of us on a mission trip to Poland. As part of the trip we visited Auschwitz-Birkenau Death Camp. The Polish government has turned the site into a monument and museum that serves to remind mankind of man’s inhumanity to man. The camp is also A UNESCO World Heritage site.

Simply put; the Nazis decided who was fit to live and who was not. Auschwitz-Birkenau was one of the many consequence of their ideas and agenda.

As millions went to their deaths the Nazis confiscated everything of value. They extracted gold teeth, saved human hair for mattress stuffing and retained eye glasses for anything of use. Whole rooms of these items at Auschwitz-Birkenau testify to the extermination of millions of human beings and the saving that which was “useful” to the Nazi agenda.

Fast forward to 2015 and a series of videos that exposes Planned Parenthood for the death camp that it is. The videos clearly expose the harvesting of all that is “useful” to forward Planned Parenthood’s evil agenda.  Planned Parenthood harvests for profit the body parts of the unborn. The Nazis would be proud.

Most of the world stood by and watched the Holocaust unfold even though there was evidence of what the Nazis were up to.

Holocaust deniers, then and now turned a blind eye often distorting or denying outright the evidence.

So it is today in our country-a country  I love but am increasing ashamed of because of a calloused leadership and an electorate more interested in what they think they can get free than they are in human life-unless of course that life is a lion shot by a stupid big game hunter. What is wrong with us?

Josh Earnest the mouthpiece for President Obama called the videos fraudulent. President Obama himself ended a speech by asking God to bless the evil that Planned Parenthood is. They are holocaust deniers as are the majority of left-wingers in Congress and the mainstream media. At least now they cannot say “they didn’t know” like so many Nazis did after WW2.

Planned Parenthood attempts to take twisted moral high ground by saying the videos were heavily edited; yet unedited versions are readily available to anyone who has the stomach to watch. Planned Parenthood’s hypocrisy has no bounds as they seek to kill the unborn and harvest their “useful” parts.

Other left-wing politicians and media hacks have taken similar stances or ignored the videos entirely being in obvious self-serving denial.

The most honest headline I’ve seen comes from Salon.com. It read, “So What if Abortion ends a life.” You can read the whole disgusting article here if you have the stomach for it. Beware if you go the site. My virus protection warned me the site was unsafe. I’ll say.

So what if abortion ends a life has been the unstated response from the so-called progressives. It is precisely what they obviously believe but hate to admit.

Like the Nazis the so-called left-wing progressives have decided who should live and who should die and who should profit from the killing. Millions  of Americans keep voting for these fellow Americans who even a semblance of a conscience thus revealing their “so what” attitude toward the helpless.

The third damning video of Planned Parenthood can be seen here at LifeNews.com 

Sadly, there is little we can do about it given the evil conspiracy between the Obama administration and the mainstream media.

We can support pro-life candidates like Ben Carson,  Rand Paul and Ten Cruz who seek to defund Planned Parenthood. Let the evil pay for their evil out of their own pockets.

Why is life hard?

Why is Life Hard?
(A biblical counseling basic)

Over the years that I’ve been a biblical counselor I’ve had the “why is life hard question” asked of me a number of times. The context is usually the person is going through some significant trial and/or struggling to change a circumstance they have little control of.
