Political Views

Posted in Uncategorized on August 5, 2011 by Ken

Can’t we all just get along?

If you are going to start a business, should the town or county or state use your political views as a reason to deny you to start a business?  I am not talking about a view that is treasonous, but if your view is conservative or liberal?

Are you serious?

You have go to be kidding!   After just getting the bill passed, we are looking at a huge jump!

U.S. eats up most of debt limit in one day

“U.S. debt shot up $239 billion on Tuesday — the largest one-day bump in history — as the government flexed the new borrowing room it earned in this week’s debt-limit increase deal.

The debt subject to the statutory limit shot way past the old cap of $14.294 trillion to hit $14.532 trillion on Tuesday, according to the latest the Treasury Department figures, which are released on the next business day.

That increase puts the government already remarkably close to the new debt limit of $14.694, which means one day’s new borrowing ate up 60 percent of the $400 billion in space Congress granted the president this week.”

But I guess the acutal number fluctuates depending on what is being redeemed and issue.  “Debt numbers go up and down regularly, depending on what theTreasury Department is redeeming or issuing on any day, but have been on a steep upward trend for the past decade as spending has ballooned and revenues have fluctuated.”

But still I am shock.

Where Is The Love

Posted in Uncategorized on August 4, 2011 by Ken

….

The truth is kept secret
Swept under the rug
If you never know truth
Then you never know love

….

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father father father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(where is the lovex3)(the lovex2)

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m getting older y’all people get colder
Most of us only care about money makin
Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting their young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what the see in the cinema
Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love, we’re spreading anomosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling down
It’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feeling under
I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is found

Mercy versus Judgment

You cant have mercy and judgment at the same time. When you have mercy, you don’t follow have judgment.  And if you have judgment, you don’t have mercy. Seems you can’t have both

God of Love, God of Judgment

Posted in Uncategorized on August 4, 2011 by Ken

Listening to Michael Ramsden from Ravi Zacharias International Misnistries talk on God of Love, God of Judgment.

I hope I do some justice in expressing this wonderful talk.  Listening to it is the best way.

Michael quoted from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.  I  hadn’t thought about love in these terms and how I love.

“True love does not exist in the absence of judgment, true love only exists in the presence of it.”

“For the words I love you to be truly meaningful, the person who speaks them must truly know you.”

There is much more and Michael is trying to answer the question about how God seems to be of Judgment in the Old “Testament but of Love in the New Testament which looks in contradiction.  And yet in all of the Bible both are on display.

For now, I will end with this.

Michael was asked “Why Jesus have to die in order for us to be forgiven?”

He answered “When justice collapses in a society, hope collapses.”

“In every religion of the world, God exercises his mercy at the expense of his justice.”

Except in one.  In the Christian faith, we teach of the cross and salvation.

“God exercises his mercy through his justice.  The justice of the cross.  Sin is dealt with. The consequences of sin are fully born and paid for.  The requirements of the law are complete.”

Wednesdays

One of those days that says so much.  The middle of the week with the weekend almost there.

Yea, you got me.  I am posting to make sure I am posting daily. 🙂

What to blog about. :)

Posted in Uncategorized on August 2, 2011 by Ken

Sometimes random.

Sometimes deliberate.

Sometimes from what I read.

Sometimes from what I think.

Sometimes from what I hear.

Sometimes from what I pray is God inspired.

But they are all mine.  I am the one to be held accountable.  My words and my actions and my thoughts.

I also want to work through some of the books of the Bible from a layman/engineer’s point of view.  Some of what I write will be based on some research but most will be just thinking out loud.

Reading the book of Ezra seems to remote to what we live today but it also looks so familiar.  Humans have not changed even if we have seen huge changes in technology and forms of government.  But we have the same problems as they did.  So it seems familiar but also remote.

I am always after the truth.  Not my opinion but the truth.  I know I filter things though my experiences and beliefs, but I always want to be of the truth.
