A Criminal for Spanking?—Assemblywoman Sally Lieber; It is still HYPOCRISY

A Criminal for Spanking?
—Assemblywoman Sally Lieber; It is still HYPOCRISY

Parents charged as criminal felons, if Sally Lieber has it her way. Aren’t there laws against child abuse already?

Maybe Lieber, a Democrat from Mountain View, California, should support stricter enforcement of current child abuse and strengthening child sexual abuse laws.

However, the long range solution to this current “California Spanking Issue” is for Mountain View area voters to send a message to Lieber at the next opportunity.

A Special Biblical Note:
“The Bible gives the job of raising children to the parents, and most specifically, to the father. The father is responsible for properly raising his children, and for making sure they are disciplined – to make sure they honor him and their mother.

The Bible lays out the duties and responsibilities of the parents and the children, describing the honor that children should have for their parents (Ex 20:12; Deut 6:7; Eph 6:1; Col 3:20). The responsibilities of the parents to train up their children are clearly prescribed, including corporal punishment (Prov 22:6, 22:15; 23:13). Proverbs 29:15 says “The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.” Furthermore, the failure of parental authority will be one of the characteristics of the end times (Mt 10:21; Mk 13:12; Rom 1:30).”

EVERY Kingdom Divided—A Warning to The UNITED States of America

February 17, 2007

EVERY Kingdom Divided
—A Warning to The UNITED States of America

“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand!”

If a Nation be divided against itself, that Nation cannot stand and will fall in time!

“Why Did The Roman Empire Fall?” “It fell because its political make-up left it unable to defend itself against invasion.” Other factors aside, “the political system was geared for occasional failures in competent leadership…Rome fell because its political make-up left it unable to defend itself against invasion.” (http://www.fsmitha.com/com/Rome.htm)

May this be a historically based warning to the (not so) UNITED States of America!

Certain mainstream media in America and certain leadership of the Government of the USA are deliberately or unwittingly contributing to a division from within, which is destroying this nation’s core political and spiritual foundation and fabric; possibly beyond repair.

With extremely selfish political posturing occurring each day among the media, various factions and so-called leaders in America, one may forget that this, once, great country was commonly referred to as The UNITED States of America. America has become the DIVIDED states of personal egotistical ambition.

What ever happened to “We the people of the UNITED States”?

“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” *

You would think that if, in fact, the media and our so-called leaders had “we the people” in their best interest there may be a time when their own hypocritical, narcissistic and destructive political fighting would subside to insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Instead, we have vanity (an excessive belief in self and one’s own abilities or attractiveness to others) as the most central trait of leaders today.

Yes, healthy, honest and truthful debate is good for resolving issues and problems we face in this country, but not to the point where division is unwittingly or purposely created for one’s personal, group or party’s self-serving elitist agenda. At some point a real Leader and Statesman must stand up and say enough is enough, harmony must prevail if we are to be UNITED and stand as “we the people”.

One historical and spiritual fact is definite; JESUS CHRIST knows their thoughts because HE knows their hearts; whether it is deliberate or unwitting it does not matter.

“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:” (Matthew 12:25)

“And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”
(Mark 3:24-25)

“But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.” (Luke 11:17)

As stated very well by a few commentaries on the Bible:

“A kingdom, or a family, can prosper only by living in harmony. The different parts and members must unite in promoting the same objects. If divided–if one part undoes what the other does–it must fall.” [1]

“The welfare of any kingdom, city, or family, depends on its concord and unanimity…” [2]

“Most states and kingdoms fall, not by the power of foreign enemies, but by the weakness due to divisions.” [3]

There can be and will be disagreement, but harmony (tranquility) must prevail within a reasonable time after the debate of divisive issues.

The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of The United States of America was the foundation doctrine which UNITED WE the People in this once great Nation. Today, it seems that the Constitution is used by our so called leaders and others to divide the people.

May this be A Warning to The United States of America; if a Nation be divided against itself that Nation cannot stand and will fall in time! Because EVERY kingdom divided—against itself is brought to desolation; it is only a matter of time!

All I have to say is be not deceived America and may the only true GOD have mercy on the people of America.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” (Matthew 24:4)

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” (Matthew 24:11)

For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” (Romans 16:18)

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” (Ephesians 5:6)

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” (2Thessalonians 2:3)

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (2John 1:7)

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3)

America, Take Heed That No Man Deceive You!
