    I want to go to his church!

    The ultimate “Man Cave”.

    This sounds so ridiculous that I thought it was a fake news story for comic purposes…But then I realized, we’re talking about vegans…

    My parents, employer, friends, neighbors, and extended family were shocked when their college grad, professional working at Johns Hopkins University, who they raised in church, excelled on the varsity squad soccer team was a heroin addict. I was a junkie living a double life at 28 years old. Shocked. My boss even thought I was making it up to get out of work for a month (not joking!).

    Twelve years of recovery later, I run a business, own a home, and lead a recovery ministry at my church. A good family, degree, job, was not enough to keep me from walking down that road. A series of bad choices opened other doors to more choices that I royally screwed up- but 1 choice changed my life forever for the good.

    I pray for those impacted by this- but I pray for this father as he comes to terms with his daughter’s choices. Even in this tragedy, God can work miracles…

    To take President Obama and the mainstream media’s reactionary words to tragedies: “We need to do something!”

    Congress- time to do something!

    But seriously, so sad- prayers for all involved.

    No class…if he had any he’d donate the money to help vets- but he’s a washed up wrestler who ripped of Superstar Billy Graham’s gimmick and has all but lost his mind…sad.

    Stupid criminal: There are enough visual clues in that video to make an ID- driving a Benz, design on shirt, even a parking sticker- even showing his hands is enough for master crime investigators, not to mention the place. Put all those together and you got a bread trail…

    When I was 6 years old I believed I was Batman. So my mom gave me a gift- Batman “Underoos” (if you grew up in the 80′s- you know). 30+ years later, and I now realize my mother deceived me…

    This is the problem with the whole “Pope thing”- especially this current one. Instead of directing our eyes to Him, Jesus Christ, all attention is directed to him, the man who was put into the position, the Pope.

    If only everything he touched became Holy- maybe Obama and Congress would be transformed by his appearance…but…instead we get a political speech. Dr. Ben Carson’s speeches sound more Holy and pleasing to Christ than this Pope… #TRUTH

    I spent years working in the Visual Arts department at a university in Maryland. These people, professors and students, pride themselves on being tolerant of ideas, open minded, willing to see things from different perspectives…yeah right.

    These were some of the most arrogant, close minded people I have ever worked with in my life. Free expression? I call B.S.- you can’t even have a normal conversation with lefties like this without feeling like your walking on egg shells. The modern- day young liberals are even worse than I experienced. Misguided? Some. Mentally ill? Quite certainly.

    Sarah who? Exactly. She will never be a King of Comedy (oops, am I not being p.c., I meant to say Queen).

    As followers of Christ in this modern world, our “flesh” desires to be love by the world- to be accepted and in line with the status quo. But we are not called to be of the world. All to many times, we live our lives to gain acceptance by people, to be in line with popular culture. I’ve been there, done that. Staying in God’s will is not easy. In fact, eventually, by staying in God’s will, we will cause ourselves to be out of step with the present day culture. Standing for traditional marriage was considered mainstream- it was even President Obama & Hillary Clinton’s stance a few years ago! But today- that stance will get you fired from some places; even disowned by friends.

    This verse was my wake up verse because I spent all my life trying to be liked by everyone. I was a “yes man”, afraid to speak up for my own beliefs, not wanting to rock the boat:

    “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:10)

    Commenting on behavior, or issues based on God’s Word is not being judgmental. Judgement is final, something God does. But on the other hand God’s word says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16)

    Teaching, rebuking, correcting is not judging. We’re not called to live lives of moral relativity- I once lived that life of chaos.

    The “Pit Bulls and Parolees” woman will probably try and rescue them…not the people, the dogs.

    This isn’t an issue of who’s going to hell or not- ” for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:23-24).

    It’s not about what we can or can’t do to make it into heaven, it’s about what He did do to make a way for us. What we do with that is up to us.

    BUT with that said, God made man and woman for each other. He literally created our bodies to fit together like puzzle pieces. This is where the science of sex is thrown out the window by the left. Biologically the male body parts were formed, not for the part of the body where waste is removed- but join w/ female- nature speaks truth. Truth is just that…truth.

    A wise man who disciples me once said, “There are times where I find it difficult to know God’s will for my life – do I take this job, or that job, do I work as a ministry leader, or a coach, etc. But, there are things in this life that, when I’m honest, and have no agenda, I can see what God’s will is NOT. I can honestly say that I believe God’s will for my life doesn’t include me injecting heroin, or beating my wife- these things are quite clear”

    So I ask, do I truly believe God’s plan for mankind, His will was to, sexually, have man be w/ man? Forget about whether or not people are born gay. Children are born with traits, disease, mutations in their genes- I don’t believe God’s plan for mankind was disease. We live in a fallen world, ie, sin nature

    I love how the guy continues to eat his fries as a whacked-out guy on PCP is being tasered…That’s how McDonald’s french fries are- “Mmmmmm…fries…guy getting tazed while on pcp…mmmm fries” – LOL!

    This “transgender” entitlement gimmick has become ridiculous. I’m sorry, if you have a penis and testicles- you are a dude. You may be a emasculated dude, but your dna says- “male”. The irony is, the very people who use science to dictate every angle of their life, refuse to acknowledge science in this issue.

    Our politicians, media, and culture has allowed this gender entitlement to grow into a cancerous tumor. When I was 5 years old, I thought I had Spidey senses…my dna said otherwise.

    Everyone is familiar with this verse: “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”

    BUT- many fail to read on…

    19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”
    (John 3:16-21)

    We can believe the lie that “no one will ever know”, but when we turn over our lives to God- He will have the last word…His light will pierce darkness, and when the light exposes our hidden sin, it ain’t pretty. What are you hiding?

    My prayers are with you and your family Governor. My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few years back. It’s like a gut punch when you get the news. But through our faith in Christ, we were instantly blessed with courage to be there for my dad.

    Today, by the grace of God, he is cancer free.

    The question should be- “Can weed be a gateway drug” rather than “Is weed a gateway drug”.

    For me as a recovering heroin addict, yes, it was certainly a gateway drug. In 1990, there were 2 drugs available where I lived in school- weed and LSD. I was scared to even think of trying LSD- and wasn’t even sure about weed. Smoking weed didn’t seem to scary…BUT…then I got comfortable with it- wanted to try something new, go on a new journey. So I began to be more comfortable with LSD- and took it. Then years later- ecstasy didn’t seem so scary…but that wasn’t enough. Ecstasy put me into relationships with people that had coke- and then that wasn’t enough (and expensive). Weed was boring at this point- and it gave me panic attacks- but I wanted something chill. One line of Baltimore heroin was it- I had arrived. I finally found the drug that did it for me.

    13 years after that first puff on a joint- after saying I’d never injest or smoke something that would get me high- I was a dope fiend with track marks. I was a college grad, working as a clean cut professional. But still a junky.

    My story isn’t the norm. But most heroin addicts share similar stories. This debate isn’t black and white. On one hand weed isn’t this crazy boogy man- but it isn’t this perfect pretty picture with happy endings for all.

    I work in recovery with several men who lost their families because they sat around smoking weed instead of being a dad & husband. Yes, there are consequences. Debate is good.

    In reply to the story Is Weed a Gateway Drug?

    Welcome to the modern world of moral-relativism. As a Christian, if you take away evil, then you take away sin; you take away sin, and then you take away the entire purpose for Christ’s death and resurrection.
