The Shack

Brace yourselves for more heresy from Hollywood.

The movie THE SHACK is coming out soon.  As many of you know the book by the same title was all the rage about 10 years ago.

People LOVED the book....which shouldn't be a surprise because MOST people don't know their Bibles.

13 HERESIES IN THE SHACK via Dr. Michael Youssef

1. God the Father was crucified with Jesus.
2. God is limited by His love and cannot practice justice.
3. On the Cross, God forgave all of humanity, whether they repent or not. Some choose a relationship with Him, but He forgives them all regardless.
4. Hierarchical structures, whether they are in the Church or in the government, are evil.
5. God will never judge people for their sins.
6. There is not a hierarchical structure in the Godhead, just a circle of unity.
7. God submits to human wishes and choices.
8. Justice will never take place because of love.
9. There is no such a thing as eternal judgment or torment in hell.
10. Jesus is walking with all people in their different journeys to God, and it doesn’t matter which way you get to Him.
11. Jesus is constantly being transformed along with us.
12. There is no need for faith or reconciliation with God because everyone will make it to heaven.
13. The Bible is not true because it reduces God to paper.

Disney Goes Gay

There used to be a time in America when the entire family could sit down at the TV on Sunday night and watch Wonderful World of Disney while eating grilled cheese and tomato soup.  There was never any concern that Disney was trying to push a political or sexual message.

Today?....not so much.

The folks who gave us Mickey Mouse and Goofy have decided it’s time for your children to enjoy same-sex romance while they slurp down their Fruit Loops.

Disney just broadcast their very first gay cartoon kiss.

The smooch happened during the second season of “Star vs The Forces of Evil,” a cartoon broadcast on Disney XD.

An audience scene shows two guys kissing and a later scene show two ladies sharing an intimate moment.

Disney is earning accolades for diversity and inclusivity among the LGBTQIA crowd.

There’s also word the upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast will include a gay storyline – between LeFou and Gaston.

I figured it would’ve been the candlestick. But whatever.

“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He’s confused about what he wants,” director Bill Condon told Attitude magazine.

And what better place to discuss human sexuality with your four-year-old than a wholesome Disney movie?

“It is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie,” Condon added.

Disney’s pro-gay activism has lots of moms and dads across the fruited plain wondering what in the name of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is going on?

It’s unfortunate – that we live in a society where kids can no longer be kids - but that’s the world in which we live.


Yes!  A nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie!


Clearly there is no SAFE PLACE for our kids anymore.  The gay agenda starts attacking them as soon as they can sit in front of a TV.

It's funny how the liberals demand SAFE SPACE so they can take refuge from bad thoughts,(Conservative thoughts) bad guns (Black guns are particularly bad) and bad religious people (except Muslims...PBUH)....but they would never dream of granting the children of America some SAFE SPACE from their perversion push.

It's no wonder that I recently saw an interviewer show up at a college campus and ask random students, "What percentage of the world is gay?"  He had numerous responses that claimed anywhere from 30-60% of the entire world's population was gay!

In reality it is closer to 1%.

If you turn on the TV and watch the NBC, ABC, CBS lineup you would be hard pressed to find ANY NIGHTLY SHOWS that don't have a gay character and/or a gay plot line.  If you offer up that steady diet of gay, in one generation you can have most college-age students convinced that half of all the people they see are gay!

We already know that adultery has been mainstream on our TV's for a few decades....and certainly helped lead us to a huge number of divorces.

And now fornication along with co-habitation before marriage is expected and celebrated in this country...where just a generation ago it was considered shameful.

I bet if you look around at even the best of kids from your will find that a large percentage of them will have NO HESITATION and NO QUALMS about living together before marriage.

Satan hates the idea of marriage...because it was God's idea from the beginning.

Satan heard God say from the beginning that adultery, fornication and gay sex were sinful behaviors....and just like he always does, he asks mankind, "Did God REALLY SAY that?"

New York Union Pension Collapses

Pensions are guaranteed.....right? the saying goes, nothing is guaranteed except death and taxes.

The New York Teamsters Road Carriers Local 707 Pension Fund has won the unfortunate award for "First Pension to Officially Run Out of Money."  According to the New York Daily News, and a host of angry former truck drivers who've had their pension benefits slashed, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. (PBGC) has officially been forced to step in and take over payments to retirees of the Local 707, albeit at a much lower rate.

Teamsters Local 707’s pension fund is the first to officially bottom out financially — which happened this month.
“I had a union job for 30 years,” Chmil said. “We had collectively bargained contracts that promised us a pension. I paid into it with every paycheck. Everyone told us, ‘Don’t worry, you have a union job, your pension is guaranteed.’ Well, so much for that.”
“It’s a nightmare, it has just devastated all of our lives. I’ve gone from having $48,000 a year to less than half that,” said Chmil, one of five Local 707 retirees who agreed to share their stories with the Daily News last week.
“I don’t want other people to have to go through this. We need everyone to wake up and do something; that’s why we’re talking,” said Ray Narvaez.
Of course, the Teamsters 707 and other Teamster pension boards attempted to submit plans that would have cut benefits in order to prolong payments to retirees but those plans were universally rejected by the Obama administration...better that the pensions just run out of cash completely.  Per Pensions & Investments:

The Obama administration is in denial about the necessity of cutting pension benefits under the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014 to try to put distressed multiemployer plans on sounder financial footings and make them more sustainable. It must face reality and order the Treasury Department to stop blocking action.
So far the department, required under the act to approve proposed reductions, has rejected proposals by the Teamsters Central States, Southeast & Southwest Areas Pension Plan and the Road Carriers Local 707 Pension Fund.
Ten plans total have applied for cuts, including the New York State Teamsters Conference Pension and Retirement Fund, Syracuse, whose Aug. 31 application is too new to be listed on the Treasury's website.
The Road Carriers 707 application stated that the plan projects it will become insolvent in February — only about five months away — absent suspension of benefits.
As desperate as the plan's financial situation appears to be, the Treasury denied the application.
So could there be more pension plans failing?
For sure.
Could the failures increase if the stock investments that the pension plan makes go down in value?
For sure.
Could the massive government pension called Social Security also become insolvent and cease paying monthly benefits based on the promises it made in the past?
You can take it to the bank.

Mexico's Southern Border

It's interesting that so many people seem to think it is wrong to want to have a wall along our Southern border.  Shouldn't we KNOW who is coming and going from our country?  To me it seems like common sense.  You simply can't have thousands of people walking in and out and doing whatever they please.

For now, Mexico seems reluctant to have any more of a wall on the USA border than is already there.

Why?  Probably because the Mexican government realizes that the more illegals they can get into America the more hard cash those illegals will send back to their families in Mexico every month.

But what does Mexico think about their own Southern border?  Are they fine with Hondurans, Guatemalans and other Latinos being illegal aliens in their own country?

This article is from January 2016 and explains the Mexico is trying to seal it's southern border!  How intolerant!!  How unloving!!

Mexico is trying to seal its southern border to prevent migrants from Central America from sneaking into the country on their way to the United States. 
Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto has been under pressure to stop the flow of people moving from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras through Mexico. 
Traditionally, Mexico has had a relaxed attitude to people transiting through the country to their northern neighbour. 
Migrants are being actively discouraged from using The Beast - 'La Bestia' - a dangerous, slow moving train through Mexico which is used by criminals to transport migrants. 
President Nieto's plan also requires migrants to register, something many are reluctant to do.  
'Plan Frontera Sur has turned the border region into a war zone,' said Alberto Donis, managing director of the Hermanos en el Camino shelter, near the migrant stopping-point of Ixtepec in Oaxaca state. 'Talk of human rights is a lie. Almost all of the migrants who arrive here have been abused by authorities.'
Evidence that migration officials harass and abuse Central Americans sits uncomfortably alongside Mexico's condemnation of U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump for labeling Mexican migrants as rapists and drug runners.
So worried are some migrants about being attacked in Mexico that they reported climbing trees and using belts to tie themselves to the upper branches so they can sleep in peace.
Sounds awful!  Sounds like Mexico's needs to build a wall to keep all the illegal aliens out of their country!
It also sounds like the Mexican border guard is very they beat, rob and rape many of the illegal aliens they come upon.
While I don't believe that America should spend the money to build a physical, 20 foot high cement wall....I do believe that we should use technology, drones, cameras, dogs, men to seal off our southern border.
A nation without borders isn't really a nation at all.


Killer Says a Demon Named Daniel Was Chasing Him

Do you remember the story from last summer where a Florida State student came upon a couple in their garage and killed them with a machete?

It was strange in that the couple he killed were totally random.

It was also strange because when police showed up the killer seemed to be eating the face of the man he had killed and it took super-human force to get him off and restrained.

Today we are learning that the killer didn't have drugs in his system but insists he was running from a terrifying demon named Daniel.

STUART, Fla. (AP) — A Florida college student accused of randomly killing a couple in their garage and chewing on the dead man's face told television psychologist Phil McGraw he was fleeing a demon-like figure named Daniel and only had a vague recollection of the slayings.

In a 22-minute interview released Tuesday by prosecutors, Austin Harrouff said he lost his wits as he walked back to his father's home after storming out of a restaurant where they had an argument.
McGraw asked about "the devil talking to you," and Harrouff went on to describe a "dark figure" he called Daniel.
"I got scared out of my mind," Harrouff told McGraw, who interviewed him by computer when the former high school wrestler and football player was still hospitalized last fall.
Harrouff, 20, was arrested upon release from the hospital for the Aug. 15 deaths of John Stevens, a 59-year-old landscaper, and his wife, Michelle Mishcon, 53. Both had been beaten and stabbed. He could face the death penalty if convicted of murder.
Harrouff, a bodybuilder who majored in exercise science at Florida State University, said he stripped off most of his clothes as he tried to run away from Daniel. McGraw asked what he was thinking.
"I just need to find someone to help me, to figure out where I am," said Harrouff, speaking in a steady, even voice as his father, dentist Wade Harrouff, stood just off camera. "I don't even remember what I said to myself. I just remember being afraid, scared."
He said he doesn't remember how he came face-to-face with Mishcon in the couple's garage. He said she screamed, and "then it's a blur."
"I don't remember what she said — I just remember being yelled at," Harrouff said. He said he grabbed a machete he found in their garage, but doesn't remember why he killed her and her husband.
"It's like it happened but I wasn't aware of it at the time," Harrouff said, crying. "I don't know, I don't know. If I knew, I would tell you."

Of course most of the world would listen to this story and say "The dude is clearly mentally ill!  He is schizo!!"

For Bible readers, we read this story and wonder if there wasn't an actual demon, calling himself Daniel, possessing this student and forcing him to commit this heinous crime...for which he may get the death penalty.  Maybe he was involved in some behavior that summoned this evil presence?

We shouldn't be surprised when we hear people explaining that "the voices" or "the demons" or "the shadow people" told them to do something....because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:16
making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

Let Me Tell You How This All Ends

Yes, I realize I have been posting some bearish reminders over the past few days....but it seems important to remember where we were just a few short years ago and how greed seems to creep into our mindset when times are good.  We start to believe that nothing bad is coming our way and it's sunny and bright as far as the eye can see!

We are no different than the generations before us.  When war, famine, storms and financial decline strike us we cry out "Where are you God?!?  How could you let this happen to ME?!"

But when times are good, we have a job, most of our friends have a job, our 401(k) has increased, our mortgage rates are refinanced and low.....what can possible go wrong?

But there are some voices that are reminding us that we have a ton of national debt, most Americans have little or NO SAVINGS, we have 1/2 of the nation that rejects the current POTUS, and there are numerous countries that would love to see us wiped from the planet.

Here is what one educated man says is coming.....

But Edwards concludes by setting the scene for what is to come...

Let me tell you how all this ends.

It ends with investors accepting that they can pretend no longer and profits are sliding into recession.

It ends as the equity market spirals into a deep bear market as company management reach the end of the road in the face of the recessionary conditions and 'kitchen sink' years of EPS manipulation.

It ends as corporate bond spreads explode as years of excess debt accumulation lead to widespread corporate bankruptcies, making the recession much deeper.

It ends with social unrest and double digit budget deficits (again).

It ends with investors losing faith with the Fed as the resumption of QE proves ineffective in reviving the economy.

It ends in deeply negative interest rates, currency and trade wars, helicopter money and ultimately inflation.

In a nutshell, it ends badly.

Social unrest??

What?  You mean creating money out of thin air by the trillions (Quantitative Easing)  doesn't work forever?

Does he mean that boatloads of people could lose their jobs as "widespread corporate bankruptcies" take over?

But who is going to pay for all the "Free" health insurance so many millions have come to love? How about all the "Free" health care we get when we hit 65?  How about all the Social Security "Promises" that are supposed to pay all of us old folks by collecting money from all the young folks? Who will pay for the 48,000,000 on Food Stamps getting "free" food?

We have said it numerous times now....we HOPE that we don't see any of this coming our way.  Jesus told us that people will be marrying, eating, drinking, planting, building...pretty much carrying on as 'business as usual' until He comes to claim His bride from planet earth....but we should recognize that our financial foundation has been built on a house of cards....AGAIN!

Few are talking about it anymore.....just like few were talking about it 8 years ago when the Great Recession came and punched everyone in the gut.

Could it be that we are in the "think not" generation....and that the rapture of the church IS THE TRIGGER that will collapse the current house of cards....and that the world will be forced to come up with a new that the AntiChrist will ultimately take over?

Of course no one knows....but it is interesting to ponder.  The conditions certainly seem ripe.....

DOW Has Longest Streak EVER!

Over the years we have enjoyed watching for articles that have the words NEVER or EVER in them.

It would seem that there has been an increase in the number of headlines that use those words...and we wonder if it isn't part of the birth pangs that are warning of the coming Great Tribulation.

We also wonder if the so-called "Trump Bump" has pushed the stock market well beyond where the fundamentals of it should be.  This, combined with 8 years of increases, would be reasons to wonder if we aren't vastly overdue for a serious downturn.

And if the financial markets do tank sometime soon....the unrest by the liberals in the streets could reach a fevered pitch.

The Dow Has Never Had A Longer Streak Of Record Closes... Ever

But another streak reached a record high... The Dow has never had a longer streak of record closes than this in its 100-plus year history...

Remember friends, it would seem that most of America has totally forgotten about the Great Recession of 2008-2009 when the entire global financial system almost imploded.  It was a scary time.

If you look around the country today, it would appear that most people believe that SOMEONE, SOMEHOW FIXED the foundations that caused that calamity.  They have no idea who, what, why, where and how it was all FIXED....but they feel they go buy a few new trucks, a bigger house, take a vacation to Mexico and have no problems packing on a bunch of new debt to live large today....because interest rates are so cheap!

This all sounds really familiar.....

Financial Mayhem in America Could Lead to Social Mayhem

We already know that the liberals are going bonkers over POTUS Trump.  Many of them have said that they need to do anything and everything to get him out of power.  They claim to be terrified that he has his finger on the nuclear launch button and could accidentally nuke the world while reaching for a bag of Cheetos some day.

So yes, USA is on edge.

But could there be a trigger right around the corner that actually sets people off?  What would it take for protests to turn into violent protests?  What could it take for Americans to start hitting each other? What would it take for Governors to have to roll out the National Guard?

How about if we threw in a financial meltdown and had the banks close, major corporations go belly up and had the Food Stamps program go unfunded while the US Gov't hunts for more money?

Most Americans have no clue, but on March 15 USA will meet a HARD STOP for the debt ceiling...and it could get really ugly really fast.

Stockman: "After March 15 Everything Will Grind To A Halt"

Two weeks after David Stockman warned that "the market is apparently pricing in a huge Trump stimulus. But if you just look at the real world out there, the only thing that's going to happen is a fiscal bloodbath and a White House train wreck like never before in U.S. history" and exclaimed that, when looking at markets, "what's going on today is complete insanity" he is back with another interview, this time with Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog in which he, once again warns, that a giant fiscal bloodbatch is coming soon, and urges listeners to pay especially close attention to the March 15, 2017 debt ceiling deadling, at which point everything could "grind to a halt."

As Greg Hunter writes, former Reagan Administration White House Budget Director David Stockman says financial pain is a mathematical certainty. Stockman explains, “I think we are likely to have more of a fiscal bloodbath rather than fiscal stimulus.  Unfortunately for Donald Trump, not only did the public vote the establishment out, they left on his doorstep the inheritance of 30 years of debt build-up and a fiscal policy that’s been really reckless in the extreme.  People would like to think he’s the second coming of Ronald Reagan and we are going to have morning in America.  Unfortunately, I don’t think it looks that promising because Trump is inheriting a mess that pales into insignificance what we had to deal with in January of 1981 when I joined the Reagan White House as Budget Director.”

So, can the Trump bump in the stock market keep going? Stockman, who wrote a book titled “Trumped” predicting a Trump victory in 2016, says, “I don’t think there is a snowball’s chance in the hot place that’s going to happen. This is delusional.  This is the greatest suckers’ rally of all time.  It is based on pure hopium and not any analysis at all as what it will take to push through a big tax cut.  Donald Trump is in a trap.  Today the debt is $20 trillion.  It’s 106% of GDP. . . .Trump is inheriting a built-in deficit of $10 trillion over the next decade under current policies that are built in.  Yet, he wants more defense spending, not less.  He wants drastic sweeping tax cuts for corporations and individuals.  He wants to spend more money on border security and law enforcement.  He’s going to do more for the veterans.  He wants this big trillion dollar infrastructure program.  You put all that together and it’s madness.  It doesn’t even begin to add up, and it won’t happen when you are struggling with the $10 trillion of debt that’s coming down the pike and the $20 trillion that’s already on the books.”

Then, Stockman drops this bomb and says:

“I think what people are missing is this date, March 15th 2017.  That’s the day that this debt ceiling holiday that Obama and Boehner put together right before the last election in October of 2015.  That holiday expires.  The debt ceiling will freeze in at $20 trillion.  It will then be law.  It will be a hard stop.  The Treasury will have roughly $200 billion in cash.  We are burning cash at a $75 billion a month rate.  By summer, they will be out of cash.  Then we will be in the mother of all debt ceiling crises.  Everything will grind to a halt.  I think we will have a government shutdown.  There will not be Obama Care repeal and replace.  There will be no tax cut.  There will be no infrastructure stimulus.  There will be just one giant fiscal bloodbath over a debt ceiling that has to be increased and no one wants to vote for.”

Stockman also predicts very positive price moves for gold and silver as a result of the coming budget calamity.


I believe we have already forgotten how scary the days of 2008 were.  Back then our local newspaper was FULL of home foreclosures, gas prices went to $4.25, business couldn't meet payroll and were instantly shut down and their people laid off, home prices were upside down and some of the biggest investment firms in the world went belly up.

So what will happen in America if that same panic-uncertainty were to reappear a month from now?

Can you see where the liberals will BLAME TRUMP?  Can you see how they will demand that their free food, free welfare, free education and free health care continue being paid to them regardless of the financial mismanagement that lead to the creation of those promises?

For those of us who follow Christ we need to understand just how temporary this entire system actually is.  We hope it doesn't all vaporize before our eyes....but we shouldn't be surprised if it does.

Furthermore we followers of Christ should not put all our faith and confidence in governments and/or financial systems because both of them always fail.
