Our Future is Growing Up

Posted in How we can change, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on March 20, 2019 by Haven Mankin

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.

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.

And…What If?

We say…Merry Christmas…do you know what this really means? I ask, is it idealistic to think we can we keep a friendly greeting and Jesus reminder going all year?

Did you sing “Happy Birthday to Jesus” on December 25th? I hope you did; it is the reason for the season! I believe we are turn; turn from our worldly ways and look toward our one and only Savior.

I invite you to take a couple of minutes to read the attached thought-provoking and educational article asking “What if…?” America at Christmas

Reflection required!

Living as such required!

What is Christmas About?

Posted in Uncategorized on December 18, 2018 by Haven Mankin

Merry Christmas to you! I have a very nice and caring Muslim friend that wishes my family and myself a Merry Christmas every year, as well as sharing an Easter wish.

What is Christmas all about anyway? If you live in Europe, chances are 1 in 5 you don’t know it is about the birth of Christ. If you live in Europe 1 in 20 think Easter is about the birth of Christ.

In America, the population that wants Christmas to be more about the birth of Christ has dropped 14% in the last four years to only 65%, see Latest Survey

It has been published that 88% of Americans still believe in some kind of God, higher power, or spiritual force. It appears to me that we are following the footsteps of Europe; we too are losing our spiritual way.

My friends, if you are in this 88% group believing in “spiritual higher power things”, this is Hinduism and not Christianity. This is the way Oprah talks. If your spiritual “thing” is not 100% the resurrected Jesus Christ, then it is just “a thing”…and a worshiped “thing” [not Christ Jesus] is an idol.

SO, what is Christmas about? The birth of our Living Savior who has already redeemed the world [lovingly paid the price for your sins]; all you need to do now is to, drop your idols and 100% believe in the resurrected Christ Jesus and celebrate His Holy birth.

Blessings and Merry Christmas to you and your families!

What about their future?

Posted in Uncategorized on November 28, 2018 by Haven Mankin

This morning, less than a week after our Thanksgiving Holiday, news mentioned a person, not liking our duly elected President, stealing a private person’s flag and setting it on fire on the porch. It could have burned the house down as peaceful residents slept inside. What is going on now in our country? Why all this hate? Why are we NOT thankful for all we have been blessed with, in a nation built upon freedom of the individual?

I didn’t like our past President, but I prayed for him! It would appear that this so-called progressive political movement, a leftist movement, calling for diversity, is all about hate and confiscating freedoms. A black woman, Star Parker, wrote an ARTICLE published today that all people should read and pray about. Ms. Parker writes:

“Republicans and all Americans who care about bequeathing a free nation to their children and grandchildren need to think long and hard about how to communicate the importance of freedom to Americans of color. It’s our only hope of not losing our country to the left forever.”

I have hundreds of articles that support what she is writing. I have three grandsons; do you have any young family members you care about? What about their future?

Look Beyond Yourself!, You are Alive and Doing Well, Be Thankful

By the grace of God, we are living in the greatest nation on earth. We take care of most of the nations on earth. We are generous people, caring people, forgiving people. We were founded by Godly men wanting to create a Godly nation. This Thanksgiving Day, tomorrow, be thankful for all you have received!

Yet, as you view the negative (on purpose) broadcasts from our main media sources, you would not see this wonderful country we live in; you would see what they want you to see…strife, hate, jealousy, inequality, anger, racism…which all comes (they say) from the group of people that love America the most!

This Thanksgiving, I invite you to set aside politics, take a few minutes and read Ben Shapiro’s wonderful article entitled, The Ungrateful Nation where he writes, after mentioning all the good things that are going on in America, the following paragraph:

“Yet as of July 2018, fewer than half of Americans surveyed by Gallup said they are extremely proud to be American. Just 32 percent of Democrats, down from 56 percent in 2013, said they are extremely proud to be American; only 42 percent of independents said are were extremely proud to be American. That’s ridiculous. Regardless of political affiliation, we should be proud to live in a society founded on eternal truths, in which we have the ability to thrive based on our own choices.”

These people should be ashamed! How ungodly! You have been given so very much, yet your selfishness has blinded you and closed your heart. Look around you, be grateful, and then go out and spread some holiday cheer to brighten someone else’s life. Look beyond yourself!

What really matters?

Posted in Uncategorized on November 15, 2018 by Haven Mankin

This morning I heard that the death count in the California fires was at 56…56 dead and maybe more dead in forest fires! …and what about the thousands of abortions in the last day or two? …and what about all the other deaths due to sickness, substance abuse, gang violence, etc.? People are hurting! What REALLY impacts people? Is it truly politics? …some would say yes, but red or blue, it is just shifting sand! What REALLY matters?

We have such division and hatefulness going on in our country now; it didn’t start with President Trump. It has been building for many decades. Michael Brown writes today in a very worthwhile article Let’s Unite Around Jesus, Not Divide Over Trump  “To put it bluntly, it is Satan, the evil one, who wants to divide us (and thereby destroy us) while it is Jesus, our Savior, who wants to unite us (and thereby bless us). To whose voice are we listening? Whose promptings are we following? Whose example are we emulating?”

Let’s all step back, take a breath, look in the mirror, and ask…what really matters? Is it really the quicksand of politics and hate for our neighbor, or is it compassion-sensitivity and love for others? Male-female-black-white-red-yellow, it doesn’t matter for our blood is red, and we were all created in the image of God…that, my friends, makes us all brothers and sisters!
