Captain Decency: Defending the Indefensible Around the World

With a stroke of his pen, the president reinstated a policy that uses our tax dollars to fund overseas abortions. In fairness, these dollars also help pay for essential medical services in other countries. However, the majority of Americans don’t want their tax money used to fund nonessential abortions here or anywhere else.

President Biden likely believes he’s on the right side of this issue. He probably thinks he’s helping safeguard reproductive rights and save lives. Again, a majority of U.S. taxpayers consider this “right” to be a moral wrong. In truth, many wonder how a president who ran on decency squares this morally.

Joe Biden is the president, but he can never be my captain. His notion of decency is built on the belief that he’s a good guy. Don’t good guys also cherish life and defend those who can’t defend themselves?

How have we come to accept a barbaric procedure in which an unborn baby is literally torn limb from limb in the name of choice?

If you’ve read this far, maybe it’s because you value truth over complacency. Or maybe this post angers you because you truly believe abortion is a right rather than a remover of responsibility and a safety valve for sexual consequences.

I know there will be an accounting for our national sin and shame. I also know that I can only do so much by speaking truth to power, but knowing my tax dollars are helping enable evil around the world makes me feel like an accomplice.

A 1973 judicial sleight of hand doesn’t fool the Captain of our souls. Nor does the incessant drumbeat of a “woman’s right to choose.” Our true Captain made us free to make our choices, but we have no right to deny others theirs.

Five Principles for Political Christians to Live By

The Bible is very clear in regard to the advice it gives Christians!

Published

on

There is a lot of debate about whether or not Christians should be involved in politics. I know there are some Christians who don’t think that they shouldn’t be involved at all, and then there are other Christians who are as involved as anybody else. The question, in my mind, is not whether or not we should be involved but how we should be involved and how we should live and act while we are involved. I believe that the Bible is very clear in regard to the advice it gives Christians in how they live their lives, and this includes includes how they engage with others politically. Check out the video below to see the five principles that every Christian should live by when they engage in politics. The points from the video are listed below the video.

1. We are Citizens and Stewards

2. We are called to love.

3. Our battle is not against flesh and blood but against Satanic forces.

4. We must speak the truth in love.

5. Trust God

Superior Thinking!

Someone out there, maybe even you, need to hear this today! Here’s some thought provoking ideas, to help us evaluate ourselves and find out “what’s on your plate?“.

What Are We Feeding Ourselves?

What I mean by that is this: What are we feeding ourselves daily?, Im not just speaking physically which is paramount for our health but emotionally, mentally and spiritually is my focused thoughts today!

Are we feeding ourselves properly to give us the optimal emotional and mental nutrition we need to perform? Is what we are digesting helping us create the fortitude and positive mindset to be successful but also to create a well balanced and peaceful way of living?

Stop Listening to the BS!

Superior Thinking!

If we are consuming negativity and toxic thoughts, how then will we shine? How then will we feel accomplished and complete? Are we not also to be examples to others? I like to tell my students of all walks of life, “We can’t go anywhere positive with a negative mindset!” – SD Powell

How about we scrape off that plate and replace it with encouraging, motivating and a more productive way of loving and living to change our mental trajectory for overall success. Success for our families, friends, our careers and our country….

What We Feed Our Minds Determines our Appetite

– Tom Ziglar

I have to say that if you aren’t reading or listening to books to help you evolve, I would encourage you to do so! I was on a run listening to Tom Ziglar’s Book “Choose to Win”. When the thoughts from what I was reflecting on compelled me to share in this video.

Checkout His Book “Choose to Win“.

I know for me I have to discipline myself and I need all the help I can get sometimes. So, for my spiritual well being I rely on my faith in God. It’s made all the difference in my life.

John 3:16 God Loves You and He has a plan for you!

Alright, Everyone. That’s all I got for you today! Stay tuned, evaluate your appetite on all fronts and go be a great American today!

Evolve Your Skills, Evolve Yourself..
