A Culture in Decline


Photography Prints

If you’re over sixty you can remember the day Nikita Kruschev stood behind the podium at the United Nations and pounded his shoe on the desk and proclaimed that our children would live under communism.

We all shuddered in disbelief and vowed to never let that happen. We went on about our daily lives and mostly forgot about that day, never again giving his absurd statement a second thought.

We built up a strong military, the strongest the world had ever known, the Berlin Wall fell, we out spent the Russians militarily and communism seemed to be on the run.

For most of us, life was good. We were living in the best of times, most of us had good jobs and were able to care for our families and raise our kids in a fashion that was the envy of the world.

Even though life always gives us setbacks and creates challenges to overcome,  we had the financial resources to overcome our hardships. We were certainly much better off than any of our ancestors had ever been.

However, unnoticed, trouble was looming over the horizon. In the process of building a better world, we had developed technology that far surpassed anything anyone thought possible even a few years previous. By most standards, we were living a life of luxury and ease. Technology had given us the tools to perform most daily tasks in just minutes instead of hours, leaving many with more free time and money to pursue endeavors that would give them more enjoyment and freedom.

While enjoying the good life, and working hard to finance it, we forgot about our spiritual foundation. We no longer prayed or went to church, we neglected our civic and fraternal organizations that had given us much to be thankful for.

We no longer remembered the universal truths that never change, and if ignored will most certainly lead to not only personal disaster, but national decline as well. We assumed, that since we knew right from wrong, our descendants did as well.

Most of us swore to never sound like  our parents and quit giving the age old advice that was drilled into us daily.

Beginning in the sixties, drugs began filtering into our country from southeast Asia, slowly people began to experiment with them. As a result, more and more hard drugs entered the scene, affecting the behavior and work ethics of many.

At one time, most members of congress, as well as most government employees were military veterans. Their pay was minimal, they performed their duties because they were patriotic, not because they were receiving a big paycheck. They believed in America, and they had a more conservative outlook.

Public education began a slow decline, at one time the schools taught patriotism, and prayers were allowed in school, it wasn’t a crime to mention God and most teachers were of a conservative nature.

Slowly, all that changed. A perfect storm was brewing. Slowly, and unnoticed, what was right became wrong, and what was wrong became right. The world slowly was turned upside down.

This change largely remained unnoticed until we were into the twenty-first century. By that time , many people had become indoctrinated into believing things that weren’t and couldn’t be true. They had grown up believing these untruths and to them it made perfect sense because that is what they had been taught and it became truth.

You tell a lie long enough and it becomes the truth.

In creating a better life for our descendents, we unintentionally created an entitlement society. Not only because of government interference, but because of union contracts as well. Many began to think they were entitled to whatever they wanted without paying their dues and working for it. It just seemed natural that we could have whatever we wanted and there were no dues to pay.

We developed this instant gratification mentality. Because of the internet and cell phones everyone began to expect to have whatever they wanted in a matter of seconds or days. The ease of obtaining credit made it possible to buy whatever we needed on impulse, no longer having to wait until we had the money in hand.

Many young people had acquired as much in ten years or less what it had taken their parents all their lives to accumulate.

The politicians soon learned to feed off this, they began making promises none of them could keep, voters believed it, and soon forgot when the elected politicians didn’t deliver on their promises.

Most times, the poor, the ones whom the political elites promised to help were the ones who were hurt the most. The end result is many people have become slaves to the government, voting for the one who promises the most and all the while giving up more and more freedom.

As a result of losing their spiritual base, more and more people were turning to drugs and alcohol, making the problem worse.

How can this all be changed?

I think the answer is pretty obvious. If we don’t all work to make the necessary changes, Nikita Kruschev will be correct.

baby boomers

Each generation from the beginning of our country has contributed to what our country has become. By the same token, no one is perfect. Consequently, each generation has done and will continue to perform acts that it would have been better if some other course of action was taken.
The baby boomers have contributed much and have been blamed for the decline of America. What is the true story?

 

To Forgive, But Not Forgetting


Art Prints

Written by Gary Wonning

Many times people tell us we should forgive someone regardless of what transgression they have committed. It is the Godly thing to do.

Regardless of how much someone has damaged our reputation, livelihood, or good will we need to forgive them and go on with life.

But what does this mean? Should we just go on as if nothing has happened, turning the other cheek and accepting their behavior regardless of how it may harm someone else or our selves?

How many times do we turn the other cheek?

In each and every one of our lives, we all have someone who has done a great deal of harm to our individual lives. How do we deal with this?

These souls come into our lives so we may learn lessons and better understand not only our selves, but others as well. When do we say enough is enough, thereby releasing ourselves from them so we might both go on with life?

Many people will never change, they will always be who they are. That is their decision, they will continue to suffer the consequences of their actions as long as their behavior doesn’t change.

Sometimes people do change, they see the error of their ways and begin to lead a new and better life.

Regardless if they change or not, there comes a time when we need to forgive them and move on. That doesn’t mean we forget. There is a difference. Forgiving  means we realize they are human and make mistakes, we can love and accept the person for who he or she is, but we don’t have to condone their actions and spend time with them.

They can go their way and we can go ours. No harm, no foul.

You fool me once, it’s your fault, you fool me twice, it’s my fault.

Forgiving means to release and go on, it doesn’t mean we should spend more time with them if we choose not to. That is our choice.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.

 

Prophecy: Key to the Future


Art Prints

Interesting article I found.

The next series of prophecies come from the Mormons. They don’t bode well for the future of our country. Many of the Mormon leaders made a series of prophecies regarding the fate of the United States and the world, in general. I will try and keep it brief, but there is a LOT of information that needs to be presented.

In 1844, Joseph Smith was purported to have made the following prophecy:

“There will be two great political parties in this country. One will be called the Republican, and the other the Democrat party. These two parties will go to war and out of these two parties will spring another party which will be the Independent American Party. The United States will spend her strength ,and means warring in foreign lands until other nations will say, “Let’s divide up the lands of the United States”, then the people of the U. S. will unite and swear by the blood of their fore-fathers, that the land shall not be divided. Then the country will go to war, and they will fight until one half of the [U. S. army will give up, and the rest will continue to struggle. They will keep on until they are very ragged and discouraged, and almost ready to give up—when the boys from the mountains will rush forth in time to save the American Army from defeat and ruin. And they will say, ‘Brethren, we are glad you have come; give us men, henceforth, who can talk with God’. Then you will have friends, but you will save the country when it’s [sic] liberty hangs by a hair, as it were.”

3e8d7-lightforthepath

He also stated that “there is a land beyond the Rocky Mountains that will be invaded by the heathen Chinese unless great care and protection are given.” (Prophecy: Key to the Future, Crowther, 1962)

This prophecy is interesting for several reasons. The Republican Party was not formally organized until 1854. There is no question that, ideologically, the Democrats and Republicans are at war. Neither party truly represents their constituents. Because of this the American Independent Party was formed in 1967. Its web site stated that this was because “…the leaders of the two existing parties…have deserted the principles and traditions of our nation’s founding fathers.”

Ever since WWII, the U.S. has been in dozens of wars and police actions. Since the end of WWII, there have been more than 100 types of police actions, including notable ones like Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Persian Gulf, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. If this isn’t spending our strength and means warring in foreign lands, I don’t know what is.

Anyone who has kept abreast of current events knows what China is doing. They are actively working to crash the dollar and becoming more and more militarized. Recently, a Chinese navy vessel tried to force a U.S. missile cruiser to stop in international waters and a general from the PLA threatened to nuke the U.S.

In 1960, Ezra Taft Benson, 13th president of the Mormon Church and Secretary of Agriculture under Eisenhower, also voiced warning against “socialistic communism” and specifically against the Chinese communists. He said that “there is little doubt that the leaders of Red China view war as inevitable and await only the propitious moment in which to strike.”

Would the Chinese invade the west coast if the opportunity presented itself? Obama is doing his level best to gut the military and bring in socialism. He’s doing everything he can to turn this country into a welfare society by following the Cloward-Piven strategy. Without question, our economy will collapse and riots will ensue when welfare recipients can’t use their EBT cards. What do you think the Chinese will think when they see this happening? What do you think the Russians will do?

Another thing to point out regarding Smith’s prophecy was the part about the army asking that men be sent to them, men “who can talk to God.” When you look at what the Dear Leader is doing to our military, you can see why this was stated. Obama is systematically purging the military of Christians – men who can talk to God. Any officer or NCO who doesn’t go along with Obama’s agenda is either being retired and/or persecuted under bogus, trumped up charges and driven from the military. Evangelical Christians have been specifically named by DHS and the military as potential terrorists.

Smith also stated in this and other prophecies that the U.S. Constitution would hang by a thread. With “progressives,” i.e., socialists/communists in power, there has been a systematic attack upon the Constitution. They are perverting, distorting and outright ignoring both the letter of the Constitution and its intent.

Obama is trying to have freedom of speech limited by the “Shield Law” introduced in the Senate. This law will specifically state who is considered a journalist and would exclude the alternative media. Freedom of religion is also under attack through Obamacare and forcing business owners to serve homosexuals against their conscience. One wedding cake baker is being threatened with a 12-month jail term if he refuses a court order to make a wedding cake for two homosexuals.

The 2nd Amendment is under attack in spite of the intent of the framers of the Constitution. This also is in spite of statistics that show that those states with the strictest gun laws have the highest violent crime. However, the 2nd Amendment, while it is for personal self-defence, was primarily intended to fight tyranny by the government. The Dear Leader knows this, but, again, in spite of him being a “constitutional scholar,” he ignores reality. The right against self-incrimination and right to unlawful search and seizure have been gutted by the Supremes.

I’d say that our Constitution is hanging by a thread.

From another early Mormon leader, Orson Pratt, is a prophecy regarding a second civil war that will be unlike other civil wars. This war would not be with two distinct factions fighting against each other. It would be a number of what appears to be mob actions, a series of civil wars.

“Do you wish me to describe it? I will do so. It will be a war of neighborhood against neighborhood, city against city, town against town, county against county, state against state, and they will go forth destroying and being destroyed and manufacturing will, in a great measure, cease, for a time, among the American nation. Why? Because in these terrible wars, they will not be privileged to manufacture, there will be too much bloodshed—too much mobocracy—too much going forth in bands and destroying and pillaging the land to suffer people to pursue any local vocation with any degree of safety. What will become of millions of the farmers upon that land? They will leave their farms and they will remain uncultivated, and they will flee before the ravaging armies from place to place; and thus will they go forth burning and pillaging the whole country.” (Journal of Discourses 20:151)

“The time will come when there will be no safety in carrying on the peaceable pursuits of farming or agriculture. But these will be neglected, and the people will think themselves well off if they can flee from city to city, from town to town and escape with their lives.” (Journal of Discourses 12:344)

What do you think will happen when the government is unable to continue its welfare subsidies? What happens when the stock market crashes? The Cloward-Piven strategy that is being followed by the Dear Leader is designed to crash the government as we know it. Unfortunately, I think it’s going to do more than just crash it as we know it with consequences these liberals can never foresee.

This was also foretold and reiterated by other Mormon leaders in the following statements:

“I have seen the end of this nation and it is terrible. I will tell you in the name of the Lord that a secret band will sap the life of this nation.” (Moses Thatcher, 1882)

“And do not think that these usurpations, intimidations, and impositions are being done to us through inadvertence or mistake; The whole course is deliberately planned and carried out; its purpose is to destroy the Constitution and our constitutional government; then to bring chaos, out of which the new Statism with its slavery is to arise, with a cruel, relentless, selfish, ambitious crew in the saddle, riding hard with whip and spur, a red-shrouded band of night riders for despotism.” (J. Reuben Clark, Jr., 1949)

“Concerning the United States, the Lord revealed to his prophets that its greatest threat would be a vast, worldwide ‘secret combination’ (conspiracy) which would not only threaten the United States but also seek to ‘overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations…’” (Ezra Taft Benson, 1961)

“The time will come when the banks in every nation will fail and only two places will be safe where people can deposit their gold and treasures…. A terrible revolution will take place in the land of America, such as has never been seen before; for the land will be literally left without a supreme government. And every species of wickedness will run rampant. Father will be against son, and son against father, mother against daughter, and daughter against mother. The most terrible scenes of murder and bloodshed and rapine that have ever been looked upon will take place. Peace will be taken from the earth and there will be no peace only in the Rocky Mountains. This will cause many hundreds and thousands of the honest in heart to gather there; not because they would be saints (Mormons) but for safety and because they would not take up the sword against their neighbor.” (Joseph Smith, 1843)

“It seemed though I was above the earth, and look­ing down upon it. As I passed along upon my way east I saw the road full of people, mostly women, with just what they could carry in bundles on their backs, trav­eling to the moun­tains on foot. I won­dered how they would get through with such a small pack on their backs. It was re­markable to us[?] that there were so few men among them. It didn’t seem to me as though the cars were run­ning, the rails looked rusty and the roads aban­doned; and I have no con­ception of how I traveled as I looked down upon the peo­ple.” (John Taylor, 1877)

The Mormons have consistently warned against a secret conspiracy that would take hold in the latter days. This conspiracy would threaten, not only the freedom of the United States, but, eventually the entire world. These predictions began surfacing in the 1830’s and have continued to this day. Socialism/communism has generally been identified as the perceived threat. All you need to do is look to the progressives in the government, the news outlets and Hollywood to see that this is true.

About the only positive thing about these prophecies is that they are ended by another prophecy that the good people who flock to the mountains will preserve the Constitution as it was originally intended. Not by how a bunch of progressives wish to twist it. It won’t be just by the Mormons, but all those good people. They will re-establish a government as was originally intended by the Founding Fathers. All of this is to immediately precede the Second Coming.

There are a lot more of these prophecies, but it’s interesting that so much of what was written is coming true or is poised to come true. Much of what I’ve researched comes from the book, “Prophecy: Key to the Future” by Duane Crowther. All anyone needs to do is simply pay attention to current events. What is happening to our country and the world is so obvious…to anyone but a liberal.

It’s Not about the Cake or Pizza


Photography Prints
I’m sure we are all aware of the uproar created because a bakery refused to  bake a wedding cake or a pizza for a gay wedding because of religious convictions. First off, who has pizza at their wedding? But that is a whole different story.

It’s not about bigotry or being racist. It’s about religious freedom, our first amendment. Our Bill of Rights guarantees we won’t be discriminated against for exercising our freedom of speech or freedom of religion.

There is no correlation between refusing to cater to a gay wedding and being a bigot. You can still love and respect people without agreeing to everything they believe,say or do. It’s done all the time.

It’s called loving the person, but not always loving what they say, do or believe. We each have different values and they should be respected, regardless if we believe the same  or not.  For the gay community to not respect a person of faith’s values can also be interpreted as being bigoted and narrow-minded.

I’m not sure about the others, but the case in northern Indiana was a set-up. A news reporter asked several bakeries a question about catering to a gay wedding. She finally found the answer she wanted, and tried to further her career by taking advantage of someone’s personal values.

It was a hypothetical question, there was no gay couple that came in and asked for them to cater a gay wedding.

Even if there was, and the bakery decided not to cater the wedding, that is within their constitutional right. We cannot be discriminated against because of our religious beliefs. It has nothing to do with bigotry or racism. Whether you agree with them or not, it is their religious right, guaranteed by the constitution.

It wouldn’t be any problem finding a baker, florist, or photographer to cater the wedding. A few hard core radical people are making it hard on everyone, most people who are gay are just like everyone else. They just want to live the life they choose and not make life more difficult for either themselves or anyone else.

Besides, would you want someone baking a wedding cake who doesn’t believe as you do, just to make a point? Somehow marriage is about more than making a political statement.

There are several videos circulating online where the same question was asked of a Muslim baker and others, no uproar.

It is definitely an attack on Christians and their beliefs.

There was a time when we could pray in school and nothing was said, the same for religious displays in public. All that has changed.

In this day and age profanity is protected by our constitution, but religious values and principles are not. Common sense as described in my latest book has gone completely out the window.

If you believe the popular consensus of the public is correct on this matter and religious values mean nothing, what are you going to do when they come after your ministers, priests, nuns, and other spiritual advisors? Are you going to sit and watch?

How Many More Miracles Do You Need.


Sell Art Online

From time to time I post interesting articles I find from other bloggers.

Interesting perspective. 

For the past few days, it seems like I have done nothing but struggle to keep myself moving forward and live day to day. It has seemed like no matter what I had done or where I went there was a battle of some sort that I had to fight. Like all hell was coming against me. I cried out to God, but it seemed pointless. Useless.

As I was driving down the road one day a profound question was suddenly stirred into my spirit; “How many more miracles do you need?” At the surface of it, it seems irrelevant and unhelpful but when I realized the purpose of the question I could not help but repent of how distrusting I was of God.

As Christians, prayer is the means of talking to our Heavenly Father about the problems that we face. About the hurt. About our loved ones who are not saved. About the fighting going on across this land. About life. Sometimes it seems like God doesn’t hear us or He isn’t answering our prayers. However, what we must understand is that God is not audible in how He speaks to us therefore we can easily miss what He’s saying. I believe the main problem is that we look for Him to speak in one way when we miss Him speaking in another way. Don’t limit God as to how He can speak to you or else you’ll miss it.

After going so long with us missing what God is saying to us it may feel like God has not heard you.

Like your prayers have bounced off the ceiling and back down.

Like God does not care.

Like God is ignoring you.

Like God is taking too long to respond.

Like God is too busy for you.

Like God isn’t even real.

It can easily become depressing when we have not heard from God or we don’t see Him moving in our situation. It can even cause us to lose our faith in Him. But, in truth, God has heard your cries and He is working on our behalf even if we can’t quite see it just yet.

I can personally attest to this through an issue that I am currently fighting, it has taken me a month to realize that it is actually an answered prayer. You see, about two months ago great things began happening in my church and we were anticipating a great future. In response, I began praying that God would remove anyone who would get in our way of moving forward in the Kingdom of God. In the last month, my church has faced a great trial over a very petty issue yet people who had caused issues through that trial are no longer attending my church. As a part of the leadership of my church I have felt the pain and sleepless nights as we fight through this problem. Sometimes it’s hard to understand why God would have allowed something like this to happen right when we were looking for great things to begin to happen. What I just realized, though, is that this was all just an answer to my prayers. God was removing the people who would just get in our way and would ultimately hold us back but I couldn’t see this because I was so wrapped up in the hurt.

In these times where it seems like God is silent, we seem to abandon the memories of how many times God has come through for us.

How many times He has healed us.

How many times He has saved us from trouble.

How many times He has come right on time.

How many times He has answered prayers.

How many times He has performed miracles.

How many times He has given us strength.

Just ponder for a moment of how many times He has come through for you when it seemed like there was no way out. Ponder on how even many more times we have not thanked Him or trusted Him to see us through. To quote an unknown author, “Until God opens the next door, praise Him in the hallway.” I believe this quote is just a cliche and honestly doesn’t mean much of anything to anyone until they find themselves in a hallway and see how difficult it is the praise God in the times of waiting. When you have found that place is when your faith is truly put to the test.

So, how many more miracles do you need? How much more do you need God to show up and bring you out of your mess before you fully trust Him and stop wandering where He’s at next time you’re in a pit? When will you learn to praise Him in the hallway until He opens the door for you?

How many more miracles do you need?

Nothing Ever Goes Away


Art Prints

Written by: Gary Wonning

We can’t outrun problems. 

Many people seem to think they can solve their problems by running away from them. They often move to another town or state to escape from some situation. Unless there are people involved who are only interested in creating mayhem in your life this doesn’t work. Even then, many times the individuals who are intent on making your life miserable will still hunt you down, or someone just like them will take their place in your life. 

If we are being bullied, the only solution is to deal with the bully, run and someone else will just take his place and make your life miserable until you learn to deal with it.  

Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know, nothing ever really attacks us except our own confusion.

If we run as fast as we can to the ends of the earth, the problem will be there waiting for us when we arrive.

It just keeps returning with a new name until we learn whatever it has to teach us that we need to know. 

The only way to solve a problem is to face up to it, and deal with it, then the issue will finally be resolved and we can go on with our lives.

Making It Through Whatever Comes


Sell Art Online

Written by; Gary Wonning

We can make it through whatever comes next.

It’s all about turning a curse into a blessing. We are all thrown a curve occasionally. We have our  life all planned out, and then something unexpected comes along to  throw a monkey wrench into the works. 

These challenges can often propel us to new heights of understanding. Many times we are headed down the wrong path, the path we have chosen isn’t always the best for us. The obstacle can be a signal we need to change direction. To continue on would be futile and possibly cause us great hardship.

It is at these times we need to sit back and analyze what is going on, and decide the best course of action. Then after we experience the growth we need the doors will open to a new future with more possibilities than we previously could have imagined. 

The darkest moments can lead us to the brightest  place. 

We can’t give up, no matter how dark things seem or impossible we keep going. The best we can do is to just let the universe, or God take over and let him run things. He knows best.
