The Need to be Baptized

Some think we are merely phenomena, not actually real human beings, yet here we are with all of our powers and wonders and emotion.

We are souls. We have spirits not just chemicals.

Satan would destroy us. We must be baptized. Then we can be safe and happy.

Through baptism, we commit to our Heavenly Father, to trust and obey him always. When we make such a commitment through such an ordinance, he lets us know how it pleases him, which fills us with joy and peace.

By being baptized, we enter into a life filled with fresh morning sunshine and golden afternoon sunshine and glorious firey evening sunshine. We obey God, and always try to repent so we can always have this sunshine and happy, happy memories, and never have to worry or be afraid. Not afraid of life, not afraid of getting old, or death, and not afraid of people, pollution, crime, governance or hell.

Someone who listens to me with just ears will think this is all ideas but it is not. It is force and reaction experienced, it is observed law.

Health Insurance Companies and the Suitors to Fight Your Battles

Got my hand munched hard by a dog today. Never have I been bit so hard (been bit many times). I relived the sensation of it all day. Very discomfitting. Felt like (to a small degree) what it looked like the girl in JAWS opening scene experienced. Have two fairly deep fang punctures on each side (front and back) of my right hand. Lots of pain. Very tender and stiff for an hour, could not move it at first. He pinched some nerves and a tendon too. He is a rescued dog whose owner is a high school coach and a good man who doesn't need or deserve a lawyer on his case. Nor do I need a bloated government to protect me from such hazards, thank you. I am not afraid of dogs because I am not afraid of bites, not because I don't think they will bite. To have freedom (which is our primary condition on earth), you must allow there will be hazards and some bad people doing mean things. Socialists who want to make a utopia by force (ring a bell? Satan?) and legislation don't see this. They make laws in their effort that mainly end up punishing the innocent on a technicality and by sheer weight, fueled by hysteria and just plain folks with nothing better to do.

What are the dogs? Mr. Obama sees the health insurance companies, some see guns, some see school bullies.

I am a liberal. I don't need a government that is. downsize it. repeal. (repeal obamaCare)

Control vs. Freedom

It struck me last night, the similarity between Satan's plan to constrain each child of God back to His presence - not one soul lost, and current industry zero accident policies. Safety First - We hear a lot about it as engineers these days. The twisted idea is, if any accident occurs, it could have been prevented and we will make a new rule to make sure it doesn't happen again. So men are no longer allowed to work, bend over or lift or cut without intensive training, monitoring, paperwork and special equipment. Picture what I'm talking about: Only being allowed to use a box cutter if it has training wheels....using a hand truck or dolley that climbs stairs by its own power.....5 safety observers standing around an open (electrical!!-Oh!!) copy machine while a single Xerox repairman works.

Government and other big institutions are trying to take away pain, sweat, accidents, hate, violence with laws, rules and paperwork. They are in the business of making the world idiot-proof so that talents, common sense and skill will no longer be necessary. Hey- it creates jobs. Too bad they are not real jobs though.

And while they are making Americans into plump, soft gumptionless pets that are used to being taken care of, they are creating more jobs researching and inventing artificial ways to make the pets' healthy since they no longer strive, venture or endure.

The basic purpose of mortality is to live free. God never in the least controls a mortal individual - why do mortals feel such a need to so do? Simple: That's Satan's main game. He wants to control and the more people he can get hooked on this vice along with him, the better. That is why we have lawsuits, a surplus of laws, a big government, and a government that wants to expand into every business there is or could be. They ain't satisfied running the post office. Must control....must control everyone....must control everyone in all they do.

Now here's another parallel to let you understand what freedom requires. I am not afraid of dogs, not because I don't think they will bite me but because I know dogs, I know how to handle them and protect myself to an extent, and beyond that (and this is key), I DO NOT CARE IF THEY BITE ME. I am not afraid of dogs because I am not afraid of bites. Similarly, if you want freedom, you must accept that there will be bad people.

Now, which do you prefer? Absolute control, no freedom, and no bad guys to hurt you, or do you want freedom, and a life strewn with hazards for you to look out for?
