Monetary Policy

The United States is on the brink of tough financial times because of poor monetary policy. The one candidate that understands this better than all the others is Ron Paul. To get back on the right track we need to listen to what he is saying.
"But these actions, directed by the Federal Reserve, alter the purchasing power of our money. And that purchasing power is always reduced. The dollar today is worth only four cents compared to the dollar in 1913, when the Federal Reserve started. This has profound consequences for our economy and our political stability. All paper currencies are vulnerable to collapse, and history is replete with examples of great suffering caused by such collapses, especially to a nation's poor and middle class. This leads to political turmoil." ~ Ron Paul

I get that you're a Ron Paul supporter (despite his terrifyingly naive statements about things like Iran and nuclear weapons), but I'm wondering ... do you think there is even the slightest possible chance that he can get elected?

I ask not because I am attempting to diminish your outspoken support for your guy, but because I am in the same spot with mine. I think the best man for the job is Duncan Hunter. I've voted for him in the primary. I know he can't get elected. I just wonder how long I should muddle about down here in the "nowhere" before I start picking who I might support who may be in the actual running.

Stan,
Thanks for the comment. I realize the Ron Paul won't get elected. The main reason I have thrown my support to him is because I like his message, especially on domestic issues. The reason I continue to support him is to get the message of the Constitution, small government, and more state control out to the people because it is hard to find anywhere else.

I think in this election cycle it is hard to see just who will get the nomination. There are still a few to choose from. The decision I made was that I was going to support Ron Paul until he leaves the race and then I would go with the Republican nominee. So I won't be changing horses until after the Republican convention. Right now I don't know if it matters much who we support as long as we have solid reasons for supporting them.

Prayer: Married Bedtime Prayer

My wife Jenny and I have been using the Bedtime Prayer that John Eldredge wrote for Walking with God as part of our bedtime routine.  As much as I have enjoyed the prayer I thought it was time for a prayer that was better suited to pray together.  Hopefully this will encourage you to implement prayer into your bedtime routine.

Our Father in Heaven, we pause at the end of this day to say thank You.  We give You thanks for the blessing of life, for the blessing of each other, for the blessing of family, and for the blessing of a home. You have richly blessed our lives. Restore us Father to Your Son Jesus.  He is the vine and we are the branches and He has become our source of life.  Open our hearts to receive the Holy Spirit's guidance, healing, and transformation.  May our lives and our marriage bear the fruit of the Spirit.  We surrender our lives and our marriage to You.  You have our bodies, possessions, and spirits; we give You our hearts, souls, minds, and strength.  We belon…

God Uses Unlikely People

One of the things that strike me about God is that the value society has given to people makes no difference to Him. In fact it seems that God would rather use the common, even the despised, people of the world to make a difference in this world. Consider Moses. God doesn’t use Moses when he is a prince of Egypt, but when he is a nomadic shepherd. Certainly God has used the rich and the powerful, but more often than not God has used the poor, sinful, and abused. God uses the unlikeliest people.

This reality comes our loud and clear at Christmas time. Think about the major characters of the Christmas story: Joseph who is a poor and scandalize carpenter, Mary who is a young and scandalized girl, Shepherds who are a bunch of untrustworthy characters. Only the Magi have credibility in society, but this diminishes in Jewish culture since these men were Gentiles. The most important event in the history of the world and God chooses people who are rejected and wouldn’t be believed by so…

Worship is a Lifestyle

"It's a lot easier to sing a song than it is to stop and touch the broken. It's a lot less taxing to go to church than to take 'church' to the world. But sharing with others is a sacrifice of worship that makes God smile." ~ Louie Giglio; The Air I Breathe

Worship isn't just about music. Worship isn't just an activity that is planned and programmed. Worship is about glorifying God with our lives. When we seek to honor God, we worship Him.

Worship happens anytime and anyplace. It happens Sunday mornings at church. It happens Wednesday night at Bible Study. It happens when we chat with our neighbor. It happens when we serve those in need. It happens when we show love to the lonely. Worship is what being a Christian is all about.

Worship is a life lived in response to God's gracious blessings. God has given us so much. We owe Him every breath we breathe. He is responsible for our talents we use. God has given us blessing after blessing. Only a life o…
