Plastic Surgeon In Civilized, Republic 0f Israel About Barbaic But Free Muslim Citizens There

Common Sense Commentary: We must remember that the Republic of Israel has within the borders of their tiny country a large segment of Muslim citizens. They are not all terrorists, but being present and free, within the country, allows for vital military and national secret information to leak out to the nations enemies. The most powerful weapon your enemy can have is information from inside your camp. Our country has a similar problem with those Muslims who live here, are free to roam and work in strategic positions, but hate us. Fortunately we are not also surrounded by our enemies as is Israel. Not all Muslims in the U.S. hate us but neither do they inform on Muslim terrorists or even speak out against them. Their silence is, itself, one step away from treason. Some may remain silent for fear of their lives, but fear is no excuse when your silence jeopardized the lives of what could be hundreds or thousands of other innocent American lives.  The deafening silence in America's ghettos, when a crime has been witnessed, but the witnesses will not testify because of fear, is bad enough, but when our nation itself is at stake, silence is not only cowardice, it is as bad as the crime.

I was instrumental in establishing the "Israeli National Skin Bank", which
is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for every day
needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations. This skin bank
is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where
I was the Chairman of plastic surgery.

This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza,
who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family
burned her.

Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are
suspected of having an affair. We supplied all the needed Homografts
for her treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and
colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg and discharged to return to Gaza .She
was invited for regular follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic in

One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide belt.

She meant to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital where
they saved her life. It seems that her family promised her that if she did
that, they would forgive her.

*This is only one example of the war between Jews and Muslims in the
Land of Israel . It is not a territorial conflict. This is a
civilizational conflict, or rather a war between civilization and

Bibi (Netanyahu) gets it, Obama does not.*

I have never written before asking everyone to please forward onwards so
that as many as possible can understand radical Islam and what awaits the
world if it is not stopped.

Porn May Be Messing With Your Brain

Common Sense Commentary: Why would anyone be surprised at the facts of this study? Either the porn is shrinking and infecting your brain or your brain watches porn because it is smaller than normal sized brains. Either way, your brain, if not pea sized, is, nevertheless a smaller version than normal. I speak harshly of this vice because, as a pastor, many times I have seen the damage  porn does to individuals, their spouses, children, friends and families. That's not to mention how God must be grieved when those He created in His image and likeness fill their mind with this garbage and what His judgement of them must be. This particular sin has been a motivating factor in most serial rapists, and many serial killers. It is not only degrading but is a contributing cause of mental problems and broken marriages. It is akin to addiction, and like other addictions can be broken, with fervent prayer, committed Bible study and a determined spirit. If you do it ... stop it, in Jesus name. RB

Porn May Be Messing With Your Brain

By By Andrew M. Seaman

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Men who report watching a lot of pornography tend to have less volume and activity in regions of the brain linked to rewards and motivation, says a new German study. The study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, can't say watching porn caused the decrease in brain matter and activity, however. t's not clear, for example, whether watching porn leads to brain changes or whether people born with certain brain types watch more porn, said Simone Kühn, the study’s lead author from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, in an email.
“Unfortunately we cannot answer this question based on the results of the present study,” Kühn said.
But, she noted, the results provide the first evidence for a link between pornography consumption and reductions in brain size and brain activity in response to sexual stimuli.
For the study, she and her colleague Jurgen Gallinat from Charite University, also in Berlin, recruited 64 healthy men between the ages of 21 and 45 years and asked them questions about their porn-watching habits. They also took images of the men’s brains to measure volume and to see how their brains reacted to pornographic pictures.
“We found that the volume of the so-called striatum, a brain region that has been associated with reward processing and motivated behavior was smaller the more pornography consumption the participants reported,” Kühn said.
“Moreover we found that another brain region, that is also part of the striatum that is active when people see sexual stimuli, shows less activation the more pornography participants consumed,” she added.
What’s more, the researchers found that the connection between the striatum and prefrontal cortex, which is the outer layer of the brain associated with behavior and decision making, worsened with increased porn watching.
Because the study can’t prove that porn caused the changes to the brain, Kühn said it’s not possible to say whether watching porn is actually harmful.
“Everything is going to be bad in excess and it’s probably not terrible in moderation,” Dr. Gregory Tau of the Columbia University / New York State Psychiatric Institute in New York said. Tau, who was not involved with the study, agreed that more research should be done in this area and that longer studies would be need to find out if porn leads to brain changes.
“It is possible that there are individuals with a certain kind of brain that are more susceptible to these kinds of behaviors,” he said. “Or, it’s possible it’s the excessive use (of porn) that’s perpetuating itself to causing brain changes. Or, it could be both.”
Kühn said other behaviors, such as driving a taxi, are linked to changes to brain size and functioning.
“Basically everything that people do very frequently can shape their brain structure and function,” she said.

"The Prodigal Son Or Daughter" With Cast Of Characters

Common Sense Commentary:

The Prodigal Son, His Loving Father, His Self-Righteous, Jealous Brother, and His Piggish Friends all had their parts to play in this tragedy and oft performed story.

The father loved both of his sons and worked long hard years to provide for their needs and would soon leave all he had built to them... equally. He was a faithful, wise father. His two sons were born into the family God had chosen for them. They had both been taught to work and be responsible, and do the right thing, but young men dream of the day they can make their own decisions and do what they want to do and be what they choose to be. The father knew that forcing them to always do the honest, correct and responsible thing would only last until they grew old enough to leave home. He had to prepare them for that day when they would make all their own decisions. That day came for these two sons. One decided to take his inheritance and go out into the world ... and be free from his father's rules and requirements which he had to obey. He had big plans and was certain he was ready and knew what he was doing. He would show them what he could do on his own.  The other son chose to stay where he was planted and help run the farm which would soon be his alone. He was glad his brother was gone. Only he would now own the farm. He would be a big, important man

The first son hurriedly left his home, his family, and the dull farm life he hated, behind. He quickly made new friends in the taverns, sports fields and entertainment centers. It seemed all he had to do was buy them a beer or pay for their meal or ticket to the theatre and they saw him as a successful entrepreneur or smart business man and quickly became his constant companions. They told all their friends how intelligent he was. More and more "friends" hoggishly helped him spend his money and "have a good time". It was the good life he had always wanted. ... until it wasn't. Suddenly his inheritance was gone, depleted, exhausted, spent. He was broke ... and just as suddenly... alone ... no friends, no food, no apartment, no donkey, no booze. He was now in the same poverty as his piggish former friends, but now he was competing with them for the slop of sinful pleasure in a worldly, foul smelling pen with the other hogs.

Then, one day, he "came to himself", woke up to reality, saw the light, he smelled like a hog, looked like a hog ... was a hog. He determined to crawl out of that mess and run for the hills of home ... back to Daddy; back to delicious food;  back to clean sheets and fresh air and music and cool well water. God help me, I have sinned. I'm not worth hog vomit. Maybe Daddy still loves me and Mommy will make me pancakes, eggs and bacon ... uhh sausage... uhh ... biscuits.

He arrived back at the farm broke and broken, filthy and starving, but repentant. His father's and mommy's prayers had been answered and his father ran to embrace him and welcome him back from the hell he had bought with his inheritance. But, his "perfect" brother was bitter, selfish, and self-righteously complained against his "sorry, lazy, good for nothing" brother ... even though he alone was now the sole heir to the farm. The poor, wayward, prodigal son had a heart full of repentance and gratitude. The responsible, hard working, dependable son had a heart full of pride and bad attitude. So, which son do you suppose God now looked upon with favor?  Which are you ..... or are you the mother or the father of sons or daughters? RB.

Drag Queens, Child Predators, Homosexual Pride And A Pervert Postal Stamp ... Walking In Sodom's Path

Common Sense Commentary: No doubt the city of Sodom began well, prospered, grew stronger, became a place people wanted to live, including Abraham's nephew, Lot, and his family. They too prospered and, with the other citizens of Sodom, gradually descended, without realizing it, into a slime-pit of compromise and perversion. That is a microcosm of what happened to all the great empires of the past. It happened to the Roman Empire, and in recent years to Europe and now to the United States. It was beginning to happen to Jerusalem 600 years before Christ, Which was eventually swallowed up by the Roman Empire.

"I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.  I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands .... And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.  And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD. But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was."  Ezek. 16:10-15.  In these verses, God is reminding Jerusalem of how He had blessed them above all other cities and nations. He gave them their every need, luxury and success so that they grew into a strong and prosperous kingdom. All other nations of the earth envied them for their "renown, wealth and beauty". They were the "Jerusalem dream", the best place on earth to be ... but they played the spiritual harlot and committed spiritual perversion with and like the wicked world around them, and sinned against Jehovah God who had blessed and protected them.

Even Sodom and Gomorrah started out, in their beginnings, as one well and one family with hard work, and a dream of success, peace and happiness, but eventually that expansive success and prosperity became their pride and idleness which grew into excess and perversion. "Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters...." Ezek.16:49. " Then God said, "You, Jerusalem, are following that same path." 

God then said to Jerusalem ... You are not better or different from those wicked, perverse cities. You act like your father was an idol worshiping Amoritish Sodomite and your mother a Hittitish, war-mongering worshiper of a Storm-god.  "Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite." Ezek.16:1-3. 

Here is the deeper meaning and purpose of this kind of recorded history, mistakes and sins of Biblical nations. All such recorded Bible history is for the benefit and warning of all the nations and peoples which came after those God wrote about. The Bible's record of them is for our admonition and a warning to us not to go down that destructive path. America fits perfectly into the above record with Jerusalem and Sodom. We are today walking in their footsteps; making the same mistakes; committing the same sins, and we will wind up suffering the same consequences. God created this nation with Christian people. Most of our Founding Fathers and Mothers were Christians. God prospered and blessed and expanded us into a Great Kingdom envied by the entire world. Most of the world's people would have come here is they could have, but we let the Devil and his minions undermine and ruin it with social, religious, educational and political change to corruption and perversion. Here is another example of our failing American Kingdom.

A drag queen was behind USPS Harvey Milk stamp

May 28, 2014

With last week's release of the Harvey Milk postage stamp by the United States Postal Service, AFA wants you to know the truth behind it.
The Harvey Milk stamp was a result of seven years of lobbying by a self-described drag queen (a biological man with implanted breasts) and former transsexual prostitute Nicole Murray Ramirez of San Diego.
Honoring predator Harvey Milk on a U.S. postage stamp is disturbing to say the least. Harvey Milk was a very disreputable man and used his charm and power to prey on young boys with emotional problems and drug addiction. He is the last person we should be featuring on a stamp.
Note the hypocrisy of the postal service's "Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee," which claims it "commemorates positive contributions to American life, history, and culture," but specifically states stamps "shall not be issued to honor religious institutions or individuals whose principal achievements are associated with religious undertakings or beliefs."
Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and sordid biography of Milk in "The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk."

According to Shilts, Milk repeatedly engaged in adult-child sex and advocated for multiple homosexual relationships at the same time.
Unfortunately, the deed is done. The United States Postal Service honored a child predator at the whim of a drag queen. Read AFA’s press release here.
Furthermore, the radical homosexual lobby will undoubtedly encourage businesses to use these stamps - all in the name of inclusiveness, political correctness and diversity. This is not diversity; this is perversity.
What you can do…
1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.
2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write 'Return to Sender" on the envelope and tell your postman you won't accept it.
Please forward this to everyone on your email list and encourage them to stand with you and AFA in turning away the Harvey Milk stamp.

Crime Ridden Detroit Learned The Hard Way ... Guns Reduce Violence

Common Sense Commentary: One of the strangest human phenomenons is that most people can't seem to assimilate long proven facts of experienced reality ... called "Common Sense". There must be thousands of metaphors, adages and axioms devised by wise and experienced minds to pass plain old "Common Sense" on to younger generations, in hopes of saving them the pain and expense of foolish words and actions. When I say, "younger generations", this includes adults who never grow up and go through life possessed of faulty reasoning ... with juvenile minds. An example of this is the Socialist, Liberal and Anti-gun Advocate. They just cannot use simple logic but invariably resort to idealism, fear or imagination in their conclusions. Because these "Reason retarded" people were elected to office by their "Reason retarded" Detroit constituents, to lead their city with their predestined, fallacious, and doomed to fail political and financial folly, they have now arrived at the destination their decisions determined... bankruptcy, crime, confusion and on and on. Only now, after the damage and destruction is done, do they begin to awaken from their dumb delusions and, like the prodigal son, "come to themselves", and face facts, logic and reality ... They suddenly realize that every responsible, able adult needs a gun in the concrete and steel jungle that is Detroit. The new, black Police Chief, if elected Mayor or Governor, may just turn Detroit around. He is a refreshing change that I hope isn't too late. RB

Chief James Craig on citizens' use of guns
Chief James Craig on citizens' use of guns: Detroit's top cop explains his controversial support of the Second Amendment
If video window disappears, click on the link below to see it.
Detroit — Police Chief James Craig on Monday reiterated his support for the Second Amendment in the wake of a National Rifle Association magazine cover story that featured the chief advocating for gun rights.
During a one-on-one interview with The Detroit News, and a press conference outside police headquarters later Monday, Craig said he not only supports the right to bear arms, but Michigan’s Open Carry law, which allows licensed gun owners to carry their firearms in non-restricted areas, as long as they’re not concealed.
“It’s the law, and I support the law,” he said. “The Second Amendment was written more than 200 years ago. It’s not a James Craig law. “
“We’ve heard instances of accidental discharges; or guns getting into the hands of children,” Craig said. “That’s terrible. But we’re talking about law-abiding, responsible citizens. ‘Responsible’ is the key word here.”
Community activist Ron Scott issued a press release Monday criticizing the NRA article.
“In a time when the citizens of Detroit are trying to find their way out of the current cycle of violence, this is not the time for the Department to use the Chief's public persona to unify with the political posture of the National Rifle Association,” Scott said. “This is a public safety and community issue, not simply a Second Amendment issue.”
Craig said he doesn’t understand why anyone would have a problem with a police chief saying he supports the Constitution.
“I’m pro-life,” he said. “I’m pro-safety. I support law-abiding citizens’ right to protect themselves against imminent danger.”
Craig said responsible gun ownership was analogous to responsible driving.
“The majority of people on the roads drive responsibly,” he said. “So if a few people drive irresponsibly, what’s the solution? Do we take away all cars?”
Responding to reports that the NRA is considering holding its annual convention in Detroit, Craig said: “I don’t see a problem with that. Organizations that hold conventions in Detroit help the economy.”
Craig’s stance on guns, unusual for big-city police chiefs, made national news after he told The Detroit News in January that responsible gun owners could deter crime. He said he hasn’t yet heard criticism from fellow police chiefs about his views — “But I expect to,” he said.
“Privately, I’m sure some (chiefs) will agree with me,” Craig said. “There was a study done where 15,000 line officers were polled, and they overwhelmingly supported the right to carry.”
Craig, in a candid question-and-answer session for the NRA magazine America’s 1st Freedom insists he is not responsible for a rash of at least eight incidents in which residents have shot home intruders since January. He said self-defense shootings “actually started before I arrived here.”
“I believe responsible, good Americans have a right to protect themselves from an immediate threat to their life or to the life of another,” Craig says in the June web article titled “A Show of Courage in Detroit.” “I believe our focus should be on how to keep guns out of hands of criminals and those who aren’t responsible.”
Craig said he has noticed a “culture of violence” in Detroit since arriving in July as the top cop. In another statement, which is featured on the magazine cover next to his photograph he stresses: “We’re not advocating violence. We’re advocates of not being victims.”
And residents are listening, the magazine said, saying that “average citizens in harm’s way seem to have taken the advice to heart. ...”
“It does appear more and more Detroiters are becoming empowered,” Craig says in the article, adding that he didn’t expect his stance to generate the controversy that it has. “I really didn’t, because it’s a Second Amendment-protected right.”
Police officials said Monday there have been 13 justifiable homicides by citizens so far this year — up 2 from the same period last year.
“This is something that’s been going on since before I got here,” he said. “Clearly, Detroiters are sick and tired of being victims.”

Common Sense Commentary: Ingratitude, in America, toward our founding fathers and military defenders who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms, has sunk even lower on the scale of self centeredness, into the slimy, dark pits of egocentric self-worship. Ingratitude toward those heros is no longer limited to the petty, selfish jealousy of whining cowards but is now common in the halls of Congress and the White House. Wherever it is found, ingratitude is a callously narcissistic attitude. RB

For Those Of You Who Don't Understand Why You Only Earn 1% On Savings

Common Sense Commentary: Phoenix Capital Research is an independent, investment advisory firm. Their summary of the crimes of banksters is especially perceptive and simple to understand considering the complications and subterfuge related to the subject. RB

Everything You Need to Know About the Ongoing Crisis… And What It Means For Your Portfolio

There is a lot of misinformation about what caused the 2008 Crash and the 2011 EU Crisis.
Here is the very simplest outline of what you, as a saver and investor, really need to know.

Banks take your money in the form of deposits.

They use your money to backstop the loans they make. In most cases, every $1 you put in the bank can backstop $10 in loans. However, in some regions, particularly Wall Street and Europe in the last 20 years, it could be as much as $50.

Who do they lend to?
Consumers, students, homeowners (mortgages), other banks… and even entire countries such as the US or Germany.

Now historically, the banks made money by paying depositors like you lower interest rates than the ones they charged borrowers.

Let’s do a quick example.
You put $100 into the bank at a deposit rate of 1%.
The bank lends out $1000 (10* your $100) at a rate of 10%.
So by the end of the year, the bank owes you $1 (1% on your $100), but has made $100 in interest on its loan portfolio ($1000 *10%=$100).
The bank pays you $1 out of the $100 and pockets the $99 as profits.

Things got tricky in the lead up to the 2008 crisis.
Because of leverage rules, large banks that had trading departments could use the loans the bank makes as “assets” to backstop the trades their trading teams made.
And they can leverage up by 26 to 1, 30 to 1 or even higher.

So, let’s say the bank loaned $1,000 to the US Government by buying US Treasuries. The bank could then turn around and use that $1,000 as collateral on $26,000 or even $50,000 in derivatives trades.
Now you’re talking about leverage upon leverage. Forget about interest payments for a minute, here’s the basic layout. You deposit $100 into a savings account at the bank.
The bank loans the US Government $1,000.
The bank uses that $1,000 loan to backstop $26,000 of its trades with other banks.

The only major difference is that in reality we’re talking about a lot more money being used. As in TRILLIONs of US Dollars.This is not an exaggeration. US banks alone have ~ $200 TRILLION in derivatives trades on their books.

THIS is why it’s such a big deal when you hear that Spanish bonds, or German bonds, or US Treasuries are losing value… because whenever a sovereign bond begins to collapse, the big banks start calling each other asking “the collateral backstopping your trade with us is worth less now…do you have any other collateral?”
THIS is why the European crisis was such a big deal… because those Greek, Spanish, and Italian bonds that were collapsing were backstopping tens of TRILLIONS of Euros’ worth of trades.

And this game continues to this day worldwide. Globally the derivatives market is north of $700 TRILLION. Only $70 trillion or so is backstopping this. And that $70 trillion is generally marked at a valuation that is nowhere near the real market value.

Imagine if you claimed your $100,000 home was in fact worth $500,000 so you could borrow $5 MILLION to trade the markets. THAT’S what the big banks are doing.

The whole mess is a multi-trillion dollar ticking time bomb waiting to happen. Leverage levels are once again at record highs. Which means we’re set up for another 2008 all over again. Be Prepared.

Fall Upon The Corner Stone Or It Will Fall Upon You

Common Sense Commentary: The whole world cries out for "the truth", but seldom tells the whole truth themselves, and though they insist on it from others, seldom embrace it as their own. RB

 "...let God be true, but every man a liar...." Rom.3:4.

Jesus knew the Jews, like the rest of humanity, would not accept the truth about themselves so He
told them a story of a rich land owner who hired vineyard keepers to work in His vineyards and then He went away. Each time He sent someone to gather His harvest from His vineyards, those who worked for Him abused or killed His representatives, the final one being His Son. The Jews, who heard the story, didn't know it was they of whom He spoke, so their judgement was that those wicked people should be executed. But it was they to whom God had given the original assignment, commission, authority and responsibility to be faithful stewards of their Master's Kingdom work, and they who had betrayed His trust and killed His Son. Therefore, Jesus told those Jews that they were, in effect, fired and He would give another crew the job of looking after His vineyards (Kingdom). His story, in its deeper meaning was of God taking His Kingdom work away from the Jews and giving it to those who would accept God's Son as their Lord and work for Him in His Kingdom ministry, be they Gentiles, Jews or whomever. So now God's assignment, commission and kingdom responsibility is in Christian hands . How are we doing? Are we really doing any better than those Jews were doing?

Jesus also told those Jews that He was the prophesied "corner-stone the Jewish builders rejected", and that true and faithful believers in Jesus were the new crew of Christian builders. The last thing Jesus told them in Matt.21:44, was that whoever would cast themselves upon this "corner-stone" (Himself), would be "broken", which is a requirement in preparing a sinner to be truly repentant, and to give his all to Christ. But, Jesus also warned that anyone who will not cast themselves upon Him, for mercy, and be heart broken and repentant of their sins, that the corner-stone (Jesus) which they reject, shall fall upon them, and "grind them to powder". That is not a bright future for those who have no time for Jesus and His Kindom's work. Read it in Matt.21:33-45. RB

The First Lie Is Their Chosen Name ... "Liberal"... The Opposit Of Their True Nature..."Greedy"

Common Sense Commentary: The only thing a Liberal is liberal with is ... and other peoples money.

Anything written in a dissertational commentary with a name like BARB-WIRE, gets my attention since I grew up with BOB-WIRE a brother of BARB whose daddy's name was BARBED-WIRE. There were at least a hundurd offspring of the WIRE family, all ranchers, in West Texas where I knew most of em. In the sand hills, rattlesnake and mesquite country around Sweetwater, at one time or another, I was entangled with, embraced by, or in an argument with one of them WIRES. It was almost impossible to get involved with a member of ole BARBED's  kids and come out the winner. Them WIRE's  knowed about ever scratch, bind, skin and cut trick in the book. I suspect this guy, Matt BARBER, who published this article, is really one of that WIRE clan and just changed his name to Matt "BARBER" to distance his self from the BARBED-WIRE family reputation. They wuz a rough, hard to get along with bunch if you crossed em or tried to get over on em.. Anyway, they wuz wire tight and arrow straight on politics, so I'll share Matt's article  with you. To sugar coat the medicine, I'll quote one verse, Isaiah 32:5,  "The vile person shall be no more called liberal...." RB

How Liberalism Violates All 10 Commandments
By Matt Barber in his publication, "BARB-WIRE"

One of my readers, we’ll call him Moses, is the publisher of a mainstream newspaper in California. He wrote me the other day with an insightful observation. Since Moses works in one of the most liberal industries, in one of the most liberal states in the union, I won’t divulge his real name. We don’t want Moses tarred, feathered and banished to Oklahoma with a scarlet “C,” for Christian, emblazoned on his Harris Tweed sport coat. (Note: I have antipathy toward neither Oklahoma – I once lived there – nor Harris Tweed, though I do recommend against wearing Harris Tweed in Oklahoma. Especially in the summer.)

“Matt, think about this,” wrote Moses. “Every one of the Ten Commandments is explicitly violated by a principle of the left.n

So I thought about it.

And you know what? Slap me with a Red River catfish if Moses ain’t exactly right.

To be sure, as individuals, we’ve all violated many, if not most or all, of the 10 Commandments. In our fallen, sinful state we have an inherent propensity to rebel against God’s perfect and holy will for our lives. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

Thank God for making available a path, narrow as it is, for eternal redemption and salvation through Christ Jesus.

Still, there is a difference between individual sins and a philosophical worldview that embraces those sins as a matter of course. Modern liberalism – “progressivism,” leftism, secularism, pick your poison – is built upon, by and for sin itself. Liberalism’s entire fabric is constructed by precept planks that are soaked through and stained by man’s arrogant rebellion against our Creator God.

In sum, liberalism is folly. It represents man’s futile attempt to disorder God’s natural order. It’s the unholy brainchild of God’s very first enemy, given by that enemy to God’s favored creation, us, with the sole purpose of destroying that creation.

Unfortunately, we’re all too happy to help. Liberalism just formalizes the process, making sin public policy.

Volumes could be penned on the myriad ways in which the central tenets of liberalism violate each of the Ten Commandments. The following is a much truncated analysis:

The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17):

1. Thou Shalt Have No Gods Before Me.

At worst, liberalism denies the very existence of God in the forms of atheism and secularism, while, at best, it adopts that wonderfully “inclusive” blasphemy called religious pluralism. Pluralism presumes to give the false gods of false religions equal footing and denies Christ as He defined Himself: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Liberal “Christianity” falls under this category. It’s pluralism with a Christian stamp.

Secular humanism, liberalism’s prevailing false religion, denies God altogether and crowns man as king over himself and the measure of all things. “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.”

2. Thou Shalt Not Make Graven Images.

We’re talking idolatry here. Liberalism is built on it. First, there’s literal idolatry (the worship of man-made idols, animals or inanimate objects) enjoyed by our New Age friends. And then there’s everything else: pantheistic environmentalism, the idols of “reproductive freedom,” “sexual liberation and equality,” etc.

Essentially, liberalism worships the created over the Creator. Liberalism also worships the sins of the flesh (see Commandments No. 1, 6 and 7).

3. Thou Shalt Not Take the Lord’s Name in Vain.

To deny God is to take the Lord’s name in vain. To deny God as He defines Himself is to take the Lord’s name in vain. To misrepresent God, to call other gods God or to deny the deity of Christ is to take the Lord’s name in vain. Liberalism does this and much more. Many liberals also mock Christ, Christianity and Christians. They revile the exclusive nature of Jesus, His commands and His faithful followers. They hate truth.

4. Remember to Keep Holy the Sabbath.

This one is a bit tricky as it is widely understood to fall under the Jewish ceremonial law, not the moral law – the old covenant, not the new. Christ Himself healed (worked) on the Sabbath. That said, many Christians still view Sunday as the Sabbath and do, indeed, keep it holy. Not all liberals (there are certainly liberal Jews), but liberalism at large denies the Sabbath any significance whatsoever, much less a holy significance.

5. Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother.

Liberalism seeks to supplant parents with “progressive” government. It diminishes parental rights and encourages children to rebel against the antiquated conventions held by mom and dad. It denies that children even need a mother and father and bristles at the “heteronormative” lack of “gender neutrality” inherent within the very words “mother and father.” The sin-centered, counter-biblical notion of “gay marriage” desecrates God’s design for true marriage and family and is intended to undermine these cornerstone institutions.

6. Thou Shalt Not Murder.

Abortion, euthanasia, “pro-choice,” “reproductive rights,” “death with dignity.” Need I say more? Sacrosanct is the liberal rite of passage for a feminist mother to slaughter her own child in the womb. Fifty-five million dead babies later, liberals continue to worship at the pagan altar of “choice” (see Commandments No. 1 and 2).

7. Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery.

This means all sexual immorality as identified in the scriptures, to include marital infidelity, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, incest, et al. Liberalism, it seems, embraces all perversions of God’s design for human sexuality. Central to liberalism is moral relativism. When it comes to sex, you can do no wrong because there is no wrong.

8. Thou Shalt Not Steal.

With class warfare as its fuel, liberalism embraces the redistributionist philosophies of Marx and Engels. Liberalism thrives on theft. Like some completely incompetent and inefficient Robin Hood, liberal government steals from the middle class to give to the poor, thereby ensuring that liberal politicians remain in power and everyone else remains miserable.

9. Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness.

I give you Saul Alinsky from his Rules for Radicals: “The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means.” As we’ve learned from Barack “you can keep your insurance” Obama, that includes lying. Liberals lie. That’s what they do. The ends justify the means. Bearing false witness about detractors of liberalism is par for the course.

10. Thou Shalt Not Covet.

Again, liberalism uses man’s inherent covetousness as the driving force behind all liberal economic policies. Creating a political climate of economic envy and class warfare gives liberal government the cover needed to take wealth from those who produce and redistribute it to those who don’t. Not only does liberalism violate this commandment, liberalism commands its adherents to do the exact opposite. “Thou shalt covet.”

As Satan “masquerades as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14), so, too, does liberalism masquerade as good. It’s deceptively packaged in flowery euphemisms and feel-good sound bites that promise “equality,” “tolerance” and libertine notions of “social justice.”

Yet, in reality, liberalism, in both philosophical and practical terms, simply signifies man’s predisposition to “call evil good and good evil.” It’s sin, all dolled up and doled out.

Ronald Reagan once quipped, “I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.”

If the Gipper had lived another couple decades, he might’ve found out.

The Preeminence of Agape Love: "But The Greatest Of These Is Agape"

Common Sense Commentary: "Charity" may have been a proper rendering in 1611 AD, of the Greek word "Agape", but if so, the meaning of "charity" has been so abused and misused by men, for the last 400 years, that I must transliterate the original Greek word Agape to get any semblance of God's true meaning of it, today. Even the word "love" has been perverted to the lowest common denominator ... "Making love", or " I love spaghetti". There are basically two words translated "love" in the New Testament, "agape" and "phileo".
Agape means Godly love and phileo means, essentially, human love.... not sex or spaghetti.

The Apostle Paul, inspired by God, summed up the true meaning of "agape" love in 1 Cor.13. In the King James Version, the translators used "charity" as the meaning of "agape". The meaning of "charity" has changed so completely since 1611 that I will, as I said, simply replace it with the original Greek word "agape", which is a transliteration... or making an English word out of a Greek word.

At the end of 1 Cor.13, the Apostle sums up this divinely inspired masterpiece, in v.13 ..."And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."  So, why is Agape love "greater" that faith or hope?  Because agape love is singularly a Godly characteristic and faith and hope are spiritual, human characteristics. Agape is not a human characteristic. No matter how much a person loves (phileo), that human love cannot reach the level of Godly love (agape). Agape love is not a natural occurrence in the fleshly heart or mind. Human love (phileo) is natural, normal love of a human mother, father, husband, wife, parent, child, or friend. Varying degrees of phileo love is common in almost everyone. But agape can only be experienced by humans as a receiving response to God's agape. We can only agape (love) God as a receptive reaction to His FIRST loving us.  "We love him, because he first loved us." 1 Jn.4:19. God's agape dwells in us only if He dwells in us. We cannot agape others unless God, who IS agape love, dwells in us by His Holy Spirit. "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." 1Jn.4:8. 
 "....God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.' 1Jn.4:16

Here is the dynamics of faith, hope and agape love. "For God so loved (agape) the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth (faith) in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (hope)."  Jn.3:16. The agape love of God reached down to humanity when Jesus was "born from above" and was indwelt, by the eternal Christ. "....Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world." Jn.8:23. Mary was the mother of the body of Jesus not the Spirit of eternal Christ.... God, who dwelt in that human body.  It was God, the Father's agape which reached down, in Christ, to redeem humanity. The Holy Spirit is that part of God and Christ which fills and thrills the soul of the person who responds to God's agape by, in turn, reaching up, in faith, not to take God's reaching down hand, but to wilfully give Him ours. "....Faith worketh by agape...." Gal.5:6. We cannot hold on to God; He hold on to us."

So God's agape reaches down, through Jesus, for us, and we, motivated by His loving reach for us, respond, in faith, and accept His offer. The moment His hand, the loving, crucified hand of Jesus, touches our seeking, believing heart and hand, we are born again.  Godly love and our accepting faith have completed a holy circuit which creates in us a heavenly hope, in Christ ... called the blessed hope in Titus 2:13... "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ."

Now, consider this. The reason 1 Cor.13:13 says, "the greatest of these is love", is the fact that love, agape love, is the only one of the three which is exclusively God's. It can only be imparted unto the soul of a receptive, seeking sinner by God's loving grace through the persons believing faith, "For by grace are ye saved through faith ..." God, Himself, is all powerful, all knowing and all present, He does not need either "faith" or "hope". He IS! He KNOWS! He CAN! His agape love does not respond to faith; His love is always there, reaching, convicting, awaiting the response of "whosoever will" believe His word ... and receive His love. It is our faith which must respond to His ever present agape love. Love is more than an attribute of God; it is the very essence of God. "...God IS agape" 1 Jn.4:8.

  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Heb.11:1. God does not need faith or substance or hope or evidence.  He sees everything, knows everything, and is everywhere. He needs nothing .... but maybe the "pleasure" of our agape love, for which he created us. 
  'Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." Rev.4:11. 

Remember to read the word, "charity" as "agape love" in the following verses of 1 Cor.13. RB

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 

 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 

 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 

  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there beknowledge, it shall vanish away. 

 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 

 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 

 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Does Jesus Have Time For Such As You?

Common Sense Commentary: Jesus said it in John 7:6 "...Your time is always ready".  He has time for anyone and everyone the very moment they have time for Him.

He was a poor, blind, broke and broken beggar. Blind Bartimaeus had nothing to offer Jesus, no money, no service, no influence, nothing but his blindness and his soul. The towns people ignored him and the Apostles rejected him. Yet Jesus had time for the poorest of the poor. "And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me..... And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way. 
Mk.10:48-52. Jesus has time for the helpless, seemingly useless. This blind beggar became a faithful disciple and follower of Jesus.

She was a disgraced, scarlet woman
... this 5 time divorcee with a live-in boy friend. She was a female in a male biased world, used and abused by men, hated by legalistic, self-righteous, but religious Jews, and probably by herself as well. But Jesus had time for this dejected, disheartened and wasted woman. "Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.....  The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw....  The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he." John 4:9-29. 
Jesus has time for discouraged, disgraced, sinful and wasted lives. This woman became a committed witness for Jesus.

They were just little, weak and unlearned children, just tolerated and ignored by most adults. They had nothing to give Jesus but their youthful innocence and fear. The Apostles rebuked those who brought them .... but Jesus, corrected the Apostles and drew the little children close and  took time for them. "And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought themBut when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them." Mk.10:13-16. Jesus has time for those who could do absolutely nothing for him and have nothing to offer ... but themselves. Who knows the potential of these little children because Jesus took time for them one day.

And then there was a little weasel of a money grubbing man,
an extortionist chief of political tax collectors. Zacchaeus had lots of money, power and a conniving ability to cheat the people for his own benefit, and was despised by them. But Jesus even took time out for this greedy, political hack who just wanted to see what Jesus looked like. He had much to give Jesus, but Jesus wanted none of it.
"And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that wayAnd when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house." Lk.19:1-5. Jesus even has time for a corrupt politician, official or businessman. Because Jesus had time for him, Zacchaeus gave his money away to those he had cheated .

Maybe the least likely candidate for Jesus' time and compassion received the most from Him. The Demoniac of Gadara was feared by the people, abandoned by his family, and driven out of society by the more socially acceptable citizens. He too had nothing to offer Jesus .... but his ruined mind, naked body and miserable life. Jesus had led his Apostles from the extreme northern end of the Sea of Galilee through a fierce storm at sea, to the far southern end of the sea, to Gadara. He went there for one, insane, naked, lost man. He did nothing else there. Jesus landed in Gadara and confronted the man, cast out the demons, healed the man's body, mind and soul, got back in the boat and sailed back to where He had started. That single act of compassion took more Of Jesus' time than any one person in His short 3 1/2 year ministry. "Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying, Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him." Lk.8:38-39. This saved Demoniac became a soul winner for Jesus. If Jesus cared that much for a devil possessed, lunatic outcast .... could it be possible He cares for you and me too? So what do you have to offer Jesus .... that He needs or wants? Nothing .... but yourself. For that, Jesus has time. He has time for you, just as your are, with all your burdens, fears, regrets and sins. The real question is, "Do you have time for Him?"  Will you stop long enough and take time to ask Jesus to forgive, heal and restore .... or save your soul? He has the time ... but do you? RB

And then ... there is you and me ....

"For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:  That no flesh should glory in his presence." 1Cor.1:26-29. 

The surest sign a person is neither "called" nor "chosen" it when they boast of a special calling or of qualities which God saw in them. RB

Legal Thieft: The Coming Gov. Confiscation Of Retirement, Savings And Brokerage Accounts

Common Sense Commentary: God's eighth Commandment, "Thou shalt not steal", Exodus 20:15, was quoted and endorsed by Jesus 1500 years later in Matt.19:18 "....Thou shalt not steal...." It is now over 2000 years after Christ quoted  "Thou shalt not steal" and it still applies to every human being on earth .... as well as politicians and bureaucrats.  RB

The following is by Robert Fitzwilson, Founder of the Portola Group and 40 year
veteran trader of the U.S. stock market, money management, and world economics.

There are many tools with which to confiscate wealth. Property taxes have always been a favorite whether one is an owner or a renter.  There have recently been disturbing initiatives directed at the $17 trillion in U.S. retirement accounts as well as brokerage accounts in general.  Last week even the pope came out in favor of wealth redistribution.  This was ironic coming from one of the wealthiest entities in human history, the heir to the apparatus of the Roman Empire.  One can only imagine what 2,000 years of donations and reinvestment would look like on their balance sheet.

Some amazing comments were made last week.  It is hard to tell whether it is just outright ignorance, propaganda, or both.  One of them was that falling productivity would be good for future hiring.  Another was that rising inventory levels were good for the economic outlook.  Last week we were told that a million people dropping out of the work force was great since the unemployment rate dropped.

We live in an economic insane asylum.  Imagine a business where management said that sales were flagging, inventories were growing, laid-off employees were filing more unemployment claims against the business, there was no money in the checking account other than what we borrowed at exponential rates, and everyone thinks “mission accomplished.”  It is bizarre and tragic.

My Comment: Set your physical, spiritual and economic house in order. RB

Breaking News! ...The Life Of The Flesh Is In The Blood

Common Sense Commentary: 3,504 years ago, the LORD Jehovah told Moses to tell His people that "the life of the flesh is in the blood". Prior to that, in the Garden of Eden (Gen.2:7), God had breathed  into Adam's lungs "the breath of life", and thereby the whole human race. The lungs are where the "blood" exchanges CO2 from the body for Oxygen from the air. CO2 is exhaled and Oxygen is inhaled. Our CO2 feeds the trees and the trees feed us Oxygen through the blood vessels in our lungs.

So what did the Bible, God's word, say, thousands of years ago, about life being in the blood? RB

Holy Scripture

Old Testament Blood sacrifices of animals pointed forward to God's sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, His Son, in the New Testament, for our sins.
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul." Lev.17:11.

The New Testament Sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, is the fulfillment of Old Testament, blood sacrifices of lambs, doves and heifers, which were simply preview types of the coming Lamb of God, the prophesied Messiah.
"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission." Heb.9:22.
"So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." Heb.9:28.

So, after 3,504 years, what has the 
world of science now discovered 
about life being in the blood? RB

Young Blood May Hold Key to Reversing Aging

Two teams of scientists published studies on Sunday showing that blood from young mice reverses aging in old mice, rejuvenating their muscles and brains. As ghoulish as the research may sound, experts said that it could lead to treatments for disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease.

“I am extremely excited,” said Rudolph Tanzi, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, who was not involved in the research. “These findings could be a game changer.”

The research builds on centuries of speculation that the blood of young people contains substances that might rejuvenate older adults.

In the 1950s, Clive M. McCay of Cornell University and his colleagues tested the notion by delivering the blood of young rats into old ones. To do so, they joined rats in pairs by stitching together the skin on their flanks. After this procedure, called parabiosis, blood vessels grew and joined the rats’ circulatory systems. The blood from the young rat flowed into the old one, and vice versa.

Later, Dr. McCay and his colleagues performed necropsies and found that the cartilage of the old rats looked more youthful than it would have otherwise. But the scientists could not say how the transformations happened. There was not enough known at the time about how the body rejuvenates itself.

It later became clear that stem cells are essential for keeping tissues vital. When tissues are damaged, stem cells move in and produce new cells to replace the dying ones. As people get older, their stem cells gradually falter.

In the early 2000s, scientists realized that stem cells were not dying off in aging tissues.

“There were plenty of stem cells there,” recalled Thomas A. Rando, a professor of neurology at Stanford University School of Medicine. “They just don’t get the right signals.”

Dr. Rando and his colleagues wondered what signals the old stem cells would receive if they were bathed in young blood. To find out, they revived Dr. McCay’s experiments.

The scientists joined old and young mice for five weeks and then examined them. The muscles of the old mice had healed about as quickly as those of the young mice, the scientists reported in 2005. In addition, the old mice had grown new liver cells at a youthful rate.

The young mice, on the other hand, had effectively grown prematurely old. Their muscles had healed more slowly, and their stem cells had not turned into new cells as quickly as they had before the procedure.

The experiment indicated that there were compounds in the blood of the young mice that could awaken old stem cells and rejuvenate aging tissue. Likewise, the blood of the old mice had compounds that dampened the resilience of the young mice.

Amy J. Wagers, a member of Dr. Rando’s team, continued to study the blood of young mice after she moved in 2004 to Harvard, where she is an associate professor. Last year, she and her colleagues demonstrated that it could rejuvenate the hearts of old mice.

To pinpoint the molecules responsible for the change, Dr. Wagers and her colleagues screened the animals’ blood and found that a protein called GDF11 was abundant in young mice and scarce in old ones. To see if GDF11 was crucial to the parabiosis effect, the scientists produced a supply of the protein and injected it into old mice. Even on its own, GDF11 rejuvenated their hearts.

Dr. Wagers and her colleagues wondered whether GDF11 was responsible for the rejuvenation of other tissues. In the current issue of the journal Science, they report an experiment on skeletal muscle in mice. They found that GDF11 revived stem cells in old muscles, making old mice stronger and increasing their endurance.

At Stanford, researchers were investigating whether the blood of young mice altered the brains of old mice. In 2011, Saul Villeda, then a graduate student, and his colleagues reported that it did. When old mice received young blood, they had a burst of new neurons in the hippocampus, a region of the brain that is crucial for forming memories.

In a study published Sunday in the journal Nature Medicine, Dr. Villeda, now a faculty fellow at the University of California, San Francisco, and his colleagues unveiled more details of what young blood does to the brains of old mice.
