Do I have This Straight? …I think so!

Posted in About the Book on June 21, 2019 by Haven Mankin

Let’s see if I can understand the current situation…

The group that preaches diversity at every turn is the same group that says I must believe like them or be condemned. I have to support their causes even though I may disagree. I have to do whatever they say or be brought into legal battles and have my business ruined by misled angry boycotts from these same “can’t we all just get along” diversity-minded groups.

I am not allowed to speak in a public institution of higher education if I don’t believe as they do. I am an angry back-woods so-in-so if I support law enforcement and the current written laws of the land. I am a hater because I believe you should follow duly adopted law and not harbor, support and provide benefits to law-breakers. I am wrong because I raise my children, without “the village”, by working hard, educating,  and teaching them manners and a gentle tongue. The “diversity crowd” see me as a most ugly sinful person because I believe in Jesus Christ and believe in America and all the good it has done in the world to protect and nurture the innocent.

Do I have this straight? I think so; I have eyes to see. This is exactly as it is currently at work now in America; once a land of the brave and home of the free!

Confusing Our Children Will be Our Doom

Posted in About the Book, Connect to the Jesus Trunk on May 21, 2019 by Haven Mankin

It is no secret that our society is breaking down; one only has to look at the break up of the family unit, the increase in single parenting, high divorce rate , etc. The so-called “extended family” is confusing for adults; just think what it is doing to the confusion of our children! One of the key elements, proven throughout history, is that societies fall when the children fall. At a time of extreme selfishness, people are lovers of themselves rather than lovers of God (2 Timothy 3:4).

Biblical truth and instruction for Christian families is found in Colossians 3:18-25. It is said to be “old fashion”, or that those ideas don’t relate to modern society…but this is completely untrue…truth is truth no matter the age.

Open your eyes and look around at our society! The hate revealed in public discourse. The cursing in everyday speech and on television. The lack of civility, manners, chivalry,  and courtesy. The twisting apart of our youth is the doom of the society! All this nonsense of gender identity is a fabrication for a whole other agenda for control over the population whether in our speech or our parental control over our own children. Do you think I am being extreme? May be you should check out Michael Brown’s article today about what is going on now in California public schools.

I agree with Mr. Brown, it is indeed time to wake up, resist this plunge into the abyss, and peacefully say we Christians will try to remain Biblical and walk in the foot steps of our LORD Jesus Christ, the best we can. We will be loving to all, but we will not be a part of the destruction of our children and our future.

Our Future is Growing Up

When people talk about being dishonest or telling lies or twisting the truth, many will discount the problem saying everyone does it. No, they don’t! Some, still holding on to integrity, will strive to be as honest as they can be. Nobody is perfect, but the difference is that some people know they fall short and try to correct it, while others go on as if it is standard operating procedure to twist things in their favor.

Recently in the news was the college cheating scandal, a truly bad situation; but this kind of thing has been going on for some time. Institutions politically manipulating who are the attendees, keeping cheating professors on-board, fake diversity, political correctness and strange course majors and silencing free speech, it is all one giant political game with little to do about real education. Revisionist history is being taught to win in politics with history professors being mostly democrats, 33 to 1 over republicans; how is there any balance where students can get the truth? College Cheating

How are we to strive as a nation filled with honest hard-working caring people…people ready to help the rest of the world…when our future, our young people, is so threatened by such an insane educational system? A recent poll shows millennials to be struggling over such major issues as: losing their phone, having no phone charger, losing their keys, being late to work, and forgetting passwords, etc.  Life is more stressful than ever.

 

Aren’t you getting tired from all the hate?

This morning, the following headline finally push me over the top. A federal representative, sworn to follow the Constitution, says this about a duly elected President? It doesn’t matter if you like him or not; this is about much more:

Obama is human, President Trump is ‘really not,’ says Rep. Ilhan Omar

Hating conservatives, hating liberals, hating Jews, hating Christians, hating Muslims, hating white males, hating Obama, hating Trump! Friends, this is all playing into Satan’s plan of division, destruction, and chaos! Don’t you see the coming fall? Don’t you see the decline of the United States of America [underline “united”]? Many how spew hate over a simple stupid red hat with white words on it…why? What so wrong with “Make America Great”? What nation has done more in the world to help others? What nation in the world has done more to feed, clothe and help the helpless? Answer: only America! If we needlessly go down, so goes the world. Maybe this is all a great hateful push by Satan…I don’t know. I do know how unloving and sad it all is.

I do know this however, for me, I will follow Jesus Christ and try my best to be loving to all, and show kindness. Give it a try!

 

Who is that errand boy? Epaphroditus?

Posted in About the Book, How we can change with tags , , , on February 19, 2019 by Haven Mankin

Get up, go to work, come home, go to sleep, get up and do it all over again. Day in and day out…do you feel like to are going in circles, a job of drudgery, a job of no value, that you are not going anywhere? Many are believe they are in that boat with you!

How do you really know you are in a boat to nowhere?

Let’s meet Epaphroditus. He was an errand boy nearly two thousand years ago in a town called Philippi. His church sent him with a message and a gift to Rome…off he goes on foot over rugged terrain. Terrain teeming with wild animals, dangerous people and no bathrooms! His biggest problem? He was so sick, he was near death and nearly died. How would you feel in such a situation? Most, I believe, would think, “why am I doing this?” For no pay, sicker than a dog, on a long walk, robbers all around…”I must be a flaming idiot!”

Well, our friend Epaphroditus, because of his efforts, ended up in the pages of the Bible [Philippians 2:25-30 and 3:15-18] to be remembered for all time. He lessen Paul’s anxiety as he contemplated his coming execution by the Romans and brought him a gift while he was under house arrest. God blessed him and had mercy on him; he was a worker for Christ Jesus! Not JUST an errand boy, he had a very important job to do…to carry a message when he was very ill.

Would you, could you do the same? Colossians 3:23-24, no job is un-important if you are working for Jesus!

Loneliness…Color it Gone!

On February 10, 2019, CBS’s show “Sunday Morning” presented a segment on loneliness. I certainly understand short periods of loneliness; I’ll bet everyone has experienced this at one time or another. However, “Sunday Morning” broadcasted a fearful stat, if it is actually true; experts claim 50% of Americans are lonely. Not just lonely once in a while, but they exist in a long state of loneliness.

The show’s interviews presented comments that loneliness was more intense when the individual was around other people. Surely you have seen a group of people, not talking to each other, but having their nose stuck in their phones. Have we lost how talk to each other? We can talk to our pets, but can’t talk to a follow human? Has so-called social media made us less social? Has the “me” generation reached the climax of selfishness, having reached that lonely mountaintop of nobody but me?

Sadly, the show never once mentioned the joy that can be found in spiritual relationships; the most valid being connected to Jesus Christ. While a two second comment about solitude was mentioned; the show skipped right over the benefits and the joy of solitude in experiencing God’s wonderful creation, or the uplifting solitude found in the “Jesus Walk”. Real empowerment is available to all to help YOU to love first, be the first to show love, then You will start receiving love from others. Loneliness…color it gone!

 

Jesus loves you this I know!

What is the main function of government? It is not to educate the people. It is not to feed the people. It is not to provide jobs for the people. So, what is its main function? Answer: to protect the people. This is not happening by the actions of both political parties.

So, what do we see happening as a result? Our increasing lack of civility and awful coarseness of language. Our increasing lack of respect. Main answer: we see a majority of the population angry! Angry with each other. Angry with institutions. Angry with the media. Angry with politicians. Angry with white men. Angry! Angry! Angry!

So, how can we turn this around for our children? Turn to God! Find the love in Jesus Christ! Learn how to be a Child of God…read the Holy Word of God only found in the Bible. It is the only thing that will bring you peace and comfort and create a firm foundation in order to stand against the destructive tide of the world, a world now in chaos.

Jesus loves you this I know, for the Bible tells me so.
