Sunday Faith Blog

There are many plans in a man's heart, Nevertheless the Lord's counsel - that will stand. What is desired in a man is kindness, And a poor man is better than a liar. The fear of the Lord leads to life, And he who has it will abide in satisfaction; He will not be visited with evil...... Proverbs 19: 21-22 Have a WONDERFUL Sunday!

Angels & Demons is yet another example of Hollywood's pandering to Muslims ..........Ron Howard has managed to perfectly illustrate where Hollywood divides popcorn entertainment from the intolerable and the inflammatory. He has shrugged off the risk of insulting a billion Catholics. When it comes to Muslims, though, he has a very different policy: hands off.
I can’t remember ever hearing one conservative talk show host or politician ever discuss Islam in a manner that indicates that they have read the Islamic texts.

This why you hear such nonexistent nonsense as “Islamofascism”, “extermists”, “radical Islam’, “war on terror” and the like.

In order to win a war you must not only define but also know your enemy. We have done neither. Islam is at war with us. It always will be like or not. We must keep Islam out of the West.
Of course.

Ron Howard knows they cut the heads off people who dare to disagree with them or ask them serious questions, like Daniel Pearl.
Liberals like Howard are ALWAYS AFRAID.
Just like the fraud POTUS, when push comes to shove where Muslim terrorists are concerned, Ron Howard actually does understand.
But lets forget about the Left for one minute.... They are in bed with Islam we all know that, but how about the Rightwing Talk Show's?
We see Hollywood stars travel to Iran, to be treated to ravings about how the US must grovel and apologize to Iran for insults…. this from the country that has literally made “Death to America” a national slogan…. and Hollywood, their head scarves intact, nod sagely, not say a word in protest then or after, and then come home to celebrate their own tolerance and do-goodism, such a contrast to their troglydidic countrymen….

How much longer shall I go on?

We see this, we see this every single frikkin’ day, from “artists” in particular who really BELIEVE that they themselves are “brave”… oh-so-courageous, because they attack Christians and right-wingers (Ooooooh. Brave!) who will NEVER fight them back, and bow their heads in submission before Muslims who will not hesitate to cut those heads off if offense is given. And that other jerkoff mel Gibson fits onto the very same patten. He is as big a fraud as any of them.
There are many people who call themselves "catholic" or "christian" who do not live by the churches teachings, including "priests" and "reverends". Just because they fail to live righteous lives doesn't make their religions teachings less moral.

Our schools have been infiltrated by communists, Marxists, nihilists, pagans/earth worshipers (environmentalists), satanists, who have been indoctrinating our students for decades. Most of their goals are to take as many souls to hell with them as possible before they die.
I'm glad that students and alumni Along with Alan Keyes are making this stand at Notre Dame!!

I love the book of Proverbs. Our hearts and minds would be greatly enriched by these words if only we could disconnect from "the world" for a few minutes everyday.

Thanks Mr and Mrs Z for your great expressions of faith.

Always On Watch said...

Years ago, when I was working in a private Christian school, the high school classes regularly conducted studies of selected chapters from the book of Proverbs. A wonder outcome was the improved behavior and attitude of the students -- and the teachers, too!

Blessed Sunday z!:)

Anonymous, did you forget to leave a name, or is it purposeful?
Ron Howard can be doing nothing BUT intentionally insulting. Seems very, very important to slam anything traditional these days...and the information behind both of Dan Brown's books is so faulty and based on 'wishful secular thinking' to render it inconsequential.
But, you see..THEY are the ones making FILMS. THEY WIN. They make the bigger noise. And, when the nonsecularists speak out in reaction, they're insulted for having done so..(a la Saul Alinsky, of course) FREE SPEECH is only FREE for the Left.

I'm hoping obama hits on Free Speech during his speech today; I'll be writing about how his administration's treated the conservatives like Limbaugh as soon as I hear how he champions free speech! no hypocrisy, RIGHT? Ha.

Larry......this was one I didn't choose. Nor the picture; somebody apparently needed to read that. Not that we all don't.
As for faith.......I wish mine was stronger. And yes, refreshing ourselves by connecting to what's REALLY important sure does help, doesn't it.

Always, is that RIGHT? I wish you'd write on that...that's really interesting.

Same to you, Angel!

Z said...

by the way, I appreciate all of you coming by today.

David said...

stopped by here on my way to church ( by way of the shower IF my teen daughter leaves me some hot water)
God bless you. I posted on the garden of Gods making, for contemplation, by folks such as yourself.

"The fear of the Lord leads to life"

Another prophetic verse from the O.T.? "life"? In the O.T.?

Anybody want to weigh in? Fascinating.

Bryan said...

The fear of the Lord is sorely missing in America, and I believe much so in our current administration, which needs the fear of the Lord to fall heavily upon it. "By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil" (Pr 16:6.)

Though the winds blow and a heavy rain falls, keep intensely "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Heb 12:2.)

FJ said...

...from fear is born a certain "reverence". Who dares mock the tiger? A "fear of the tiger also leads to life."

THE TYGER (from Songs Of Experience - William Blake (1794))Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

FJ said...

...but then, so does a love of the Lamb lead to life.

The Lamb (from Songs of Innocence - William Blake)Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life & bid thee feed,
By the stream & o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, wooly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee:
He is called by thy name,
For he calls himself a Lamb.
He is meek & he is mild;
He became a little child.
I a child & thou a lamb.
We are called by his name.
Little Lamb, God bless thee!
Little Lamb, God bless thee!

Z said...

David, I wish I could live up to that..will check your blog. thank you.

Bryan, exactly. thanks for being here.

FJ..."fear" never meaning FEAR as we know it, but AWE (though I believe a healthy fear is ALWAYS a good thing; whether it be for God or parents by children!?)
Thanks so much for the poetry..my faith flags and then I remember men of brilliance and poetry were such firm believers.

David Schantz said...

Z,

I stopped by to thank you for your prayers.

Great post.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Prov.9
[10] The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Prov.14
[26] In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.
[27] The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

Pss.19
[9] The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

Reverence seems to bring positive things, like; life, righteousness, wisdom and understanding...a good place to dwell. No?

Thanks - I added the mediation on gardening book to my amazon wish list.
God bless you.

JINGOIST said...

Thanks for that Biblical wisdom Z! I LOVE Proverbs and Psalms.

JINGOIST said...

To the 1st poster anonymous...very good post!

Gayle said...

Z, may God Bless you this Sunday and every day.

As for what Always said, I can also remember passages being read from the Bible in public schools. Unfortunately I'm a bit older than Always and I don't remember what passages, but I do remember many different ones being read. Even when my children were in school the Principal read a passage from the Bible over the intercom at the beginning of each school day. How things have changed. The atheists would say it was "progress". As far as I'm concerned it's going back in time to the days the people turned their backs on God and built a golden calf to worship, the only difference being what is worshipped now is "self", and both are false idols.

"And a poor man is better than a liar." If only more people (in Washington DC especially) comprehended this.
Thank you, Z. Have a wonderful, wonderful day.

Thanks once again for your Sunday posts. It's late, but I didn't want to miss getting by.

Papa Frank said...

Hope you and Mr. Z had a restful day today.

Z said...

What a long shake....nothing too bad, but long and shakey!

Papa Frank said...
