Intolerance is:


Compelling, restricting, or silencing
   by harm, cruelty, force, or threat of these.


Endeavoring to overrule another's obedience to their conscience.


Stating false accusations for the purpose of
   diminishing the credibility and influence of another.

 


These are not intolerance:


Positive, constructive, independent action


Simple disagreement


Difference of belief


The peaceful statement of ones sincere belief

and your government when it deserves it." ~ Mark Twain

There is a movie about how good it is

when all guns are confiscated or controlled.

It is called: Schindler’s List.   It reveals historical evidence.

See it !

 

 


 

 

Despo...

Despoil  To deprive of possessions by force, plunder.

Despond To become disheartened, give up.

Despondent  In low spirits from loss of hope or courage.

Despot   A ruler with absolute power,
especially one who exercises it in a cruel or oppressive way.

The dictionary describes something I have experienced.

Perhaps you have too.


 #8

Feel Unloved?

 To feel unloved is a problem
              which brings other problems.

Some people do not treat us with love.
                          They are the problem.

Sometimes we do not recognize that
we are being treated with love.
                             We are the problem.

Love and follow after love.

It is in the water,

Not on the land,

That men learn to swim.

...skill is learned in the work itself.

Salvation

Jesus saves his people now by knowing the life he lived on earth including what he did, said, and the way he died.

We are saved when we learn facts of his life, admire them, and accept them as our own concepts of right and wrong.

We save others from our sin when we refrain from sinning against them and from  tempting them to sin.

We help save others from their own sin when we correctly inform them of Jesus life, his love, and hope for them.

We help save people from their guilt by informing then that Jesus invited sinners to come to him, he associated with them, he tolerated them, and he forgave them.

Like me you must have wondered why so many couples divorce.

 

I began to realize that it was not all about my wife,  or me. 

 

Who Killed the American Family?

 

Phyllis Schlafly in this new book (2014) names others involved.

 

Ephesians 6:12    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high [places].             April 2015

Terrorism is the belief that fear, intimidation, and terror
are effective and acceptable tools for managing people.
Terrorism is accomplished by treating one or some cruelly,
so they and others who watch or know of it
will act to avoid similar treatment.   PB

  

                         All punishment
should be for the future good of the one punished.

Much better that children learn obedience
through trust than through punishment.
Children will within themselves recognize
that it is best to obey if parents
only give orders for the children's benefit.

Animosity is a destroyer not a builder.
Don’t be led to feel or use it.
Abandon it !

The American Heritage Dictionary, Animosity:
“Bitter hostility or hatred”
[No legitimate offense is needed.]

Resentment is a reaction to unjust treatment.
Active animosity can thrive without a legitimate cause.

PB

Only Believe

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,                                    that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.                           John 3:16  

 

Salvation comes to you who believe in Jesus.  The more you believe of His life and teaching, the more saved you are.  He did a lot of living and a lot of teaching.

You can read of His life and words in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and some other places in the Bible.

Friendship warms the heart

                                     without a word.

We express our love for others and
become aware of the love of others
for us by the spirit (attitude) we sense
expressed in:
     Gifts
     Acts of service
     Gentle touch
     Words of love
     Choosing to give personal attention
             and time.

"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled."   "Ask, and it shall be given you;  seek and ye shall find;  knock and it shall be opened unto you.  For everyone that asketh reciveth;  and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."    Matthew 5:6,  Luke 11:9 (1-13)

My Grandfather Joseph 'Blake operated a sawmill and tugboat on Own Sound.

I traveled there once with my family including my father in his old age.

It is special to hear from Own Sound and about your great work. Thank you
