"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Lovely Day

Remember when the 2005 Tsunami hit? For the most part every video before or as the wave is crashing shows lovely weather. It seemed like another day on paradise for those on holiday.

Yet in moments every bit of stability and calm that the region knew was wiped out.

I am wondering if we are having a lovely day in the United States and are ignoring the crashing economy?

I have the same uneasy feeling and while we've been moving in this direction for awhile, I think when it happens it will be like the Tsuanmai - instant and enormous.

hmmmmm---went to the mall the other day for something and I was sitting watching the THRONGS of people with all their purchases wondering to myself"are they prepared "? --are they trying to stimulate the economy in their own way...I just don't know Jennifer--God's timing is not ours. On Glenn Beck, there was a Christian on really believeing that we are truly last days believers....not as quack naming a time etc..but saying beware---- he was real savy on the jerk that runs Iran too and their agenda which is another story.
hope you are feeling better

Sound comments....we must understand the warnings and signs that are out there. The question is are we in His word and focused on him?

He does advise us that there will be signs.
