Today the hawks would have us continue the war in Afghanistan and start new wars in Iran and Syria. We, a Christian nation, are waging war for democracy and good among Muslim nations that hate us and worship another god. Why? I submit that we all are following God’s plan for us, revealed in The Bible: Revelations. Have you read it? Yes, it is difficult to understand. We have to turn to Bible scholars inspired by God to be His prophet. World War III, the last war, will be nuclear and will end by Jesus Christ’s devine intervention. Most of us are unaware how soon the world, as we know it, will end. Jesus told us to look for signs of His return. Many of us believe that we witness these signs today and look forward to Christ’s return.
My first experience with war was The Vietnamese War which I avoided fighting through the blessing of having a sliding hiatus hernia. While in the ROTC program, I naively wrote a paper against the war. I quickly lost my student deferment and was drafted. God provided a doctor’s note which I presented in the inductee line and was saved from and early death. Yes, there was “hell to pay” living a life of pain from the hernia. I accepted that this was a part of God’s plan for me: My own cross to bear. I sat down to write today’s post with no ideas. God inspired me write part of my story and bring to you a sermon on the Vietnamese war by Dr. Martin Luther King at the Riverside Church in New York City. Today I present his address as an
and the written words. I pray that they are relevant and will be a blessing for you. —GoodOleWoody
As a national firearms debate rages, NBC News examines every known gun death that occurred over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend — while President Barack Obama marked his second inauguration — and shares stories of victims and their families.
These three men are the Republican leaders in Congress: Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH). These powerful three men oppose the President of the United States, Leader of the Free World who has declared himself a “Warrior for the Middle-Class.” These three obstructionists are resisting the creation of jobs by the American Jobs Act. They call the burgeoning movement, Occupy Wall Street, which is honing our despair at the “state of the union.” Millions of us, the “99%” of the population have no jobs. We have worked hard in the past but our efforts see diminishing returns without a steady paycheck. McConnell, Cantor and Boehner are using all their elected power to protect the top “1%” who have all the wealth and were given low tax rates in exchange for job creation. This bargain was struck and now the wealthy in this country have reneged! Even though they were given a windfall last Christmas in exchange for extended unemployment benefits, the continue to be renegers! IT’S TIME FOR THE WEALTHY BOSSES WHO HAVE THE MONEY AND THE POWER TO OPEN THEIR COFFERS AND INVEST AT HOME. “AMERICA CAN BE AMERICA AGAIN.” THAT IS, IF WE BEGIN TO REPAIR OUR VARIOUS INFRASTRUCTURE, THE GIRDERS AND PYLONS ON WHICH OUR ECONOMY RESTS. Government must repatriate the millions of dollars in corporate profits being held offshore in a bargain to create domestic jobs. [If Martin Luther King were here today, he'd lead a March on Washington to end all marches! Congress would be shutdown until it agreed to work for the people and not the new legislative class which shields the top 1% from having to pay their fair share in society.] Jobs. We need jobs!
The world has been inspired by OCCUPY WALL STREET and the 99 percenters are protesting the state of the global financial system and its inequity. The world revolves around this system. If McConnell, Cantor and Boehner do not reach out to our President in conciliation and agree to work for job creation, political and financial reform. This MUST HAPPEN before the bubble bursts and we are thrown into the vortex:
