Limbless Boy Abandoned By His Mother Inspires Many

Gabe Adams was born in Brazil without any arms or legs. His biological mother rejected him and abandoned him when he was just a baby.

His story became so popular that it reached news outlets in the United States. That is when the Adams family knew that they had to help. After going through the proper channels, they were able to adopt Gabe and bring him the US.

From a baby to now a 12 year old boy, Gabe’s story is truly an inspiration. If he can do all that he has done, we have no right to complain about anything in our lives.

OUR CHILDREN ARE RED, WHITE AND SCREWED

By Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show –

….There was a time that a child could produce a mediocre track record in high school, not go to college, but were able to work in a factory or a department store and climb the ranks and subsequently live a life of wonderful opportunities.

With 86% of our 1968 based manufacturing gone to overseas markets, those days of second chance opportunities are gone forever.

When the Blinders Come Off

My soon-to-14 year old son is showing signs of asking questions befitting an adult perspective of our present political and economic situation. I am not bashful about identifying the misdeeds of our government when I am writing or broadcasting. Also, I know that I have the intellectual capacity to explain to my son how bad things have become in terms he can understand. However, I have found that I am lacking the skill and knowledge to explain to my son just how bad things are without taking away his hope for the future.

I am running out of time to begin to formulate a dialogue with my son as I know that I will have to say something and say it very soon. Just the other day, my son made fun of Obama and his nation of birth, Kenya. As my readers and listeners will tell you, I don’t pursue the “birther issue” a s a point of emphasis in my advocacy. Yet, my son is keenly aware of this issue. Last night as we were driving home from play that we attended, my son offhandedly said “the rich control Obama and he controls us like a dictator”. In other words, he is getting his education about the New World Order from sources from “OTP” (i.e. other than parents). I asked him where he got that information and he said “some of the kids at school say Obama is a member of Illuminati and it is all over Youtube”. Life was so much easier when I controlled most of his access to information. I knew that this day would come, but I am finding that I am not prepared with ready made answers about how the world really works. Most adults don’t know how the world works….

Figures may lie and liars may figure, however, there are some numbers that cannot be ignored and they serve to underscore the increasing sense of hopelessness that is creeping across the country.

During 2011, 53 percent of all Americans with a bachelor’s degree under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.

At this point about half of all recent college graduates are working jobs that do not even require a college degree.

The number of Americans in the 16 to 29 year old age bracket with a job declined by 18 percent between 2000 and 2010.

Incomes for U.S. households led by someone between the ages of 25 and 34 have fallen by about 12 percent after you adjust for inflation since the year 2000.

In 1984, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older was 10 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger. Today, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older is 47 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger.

In 2011, SAT scores for young men were the worst that they had been in 40 years….

The Church (According To Christ)

From HisHolyChurch.org –

He came preaching the kingdom of God is at hand. To set men free in Spirit and in Truth from the bondage of this world and the next.

This was His good news, the gospel of the Kingdom, that the kingdom of God was at hand to set all men free from the elements of the world so that they may be free souls under God the Father of heaven and earth.

It was a system and a way that was based on faith, hope, and charity and the perfect law of love and liberty. His message was to bring peace and division. It was the salvation of the world.

The kingdom of God is “one form of government”.

How does the Kingdom of God differ from other governments?

What was this thing called the Church?

Was the early Church doing the same things as what we see the modern churches doing?

Jesus appointed a kingdom to His “little flock”, the apostles.

How does that kingdom relate to that early Church?

What was the role or purpose of that Church?

What should it look like and what should it be doing to fulfill its mission?

There are thousands of views and versions as to what the Church is and what it should be doing, but there is only one man who established the Church. The Church was established by Yahushua* the Messiah, a.k.a. Jesus the Christ. Only He can define the purpose and nature of this thing called the Church. It is His Creation, His appointed institution. It is His Holy Church.

Seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness

It is up to each of us to strive, seek, and find out what the Church is according to the intent of the one who established it.

How does it relate to us in our lives and in God’s plan for us?

Freedom From Fear At The End Of The World

By Paul McGuire – NewsWithViews.com –

In nations like Great Britain and the U.S. we are witnessing the rise of the Orwellian State, the loss of freedoms, and the loss of economic prosperity for the Middle Class in many Western-type nations across the world. The possibility of global thermonuclear war, biological plagues like the Ebola virus, food shortages, and terrorist attacks from groups like Isis provides on one level a pessimistic view of the future. Thus, in nations like the U.S., Great Britain, Japan, and other nations you see the death of optimism and skyrocketing rates of clinical depression, anxiety, panic attacks, PSTD, and suicides. Despite the plethora of new psychiatric drugs all these emotional and psychological problems are on the increase. Hopelessness, despair, and fear grip the minds of men and women across the world like a plague.

Whether you are an agnostic, an atheist, or believe in God, it is interesting to note that Jesus Christ commented on this condition that would accelerate in what the Bible calls the last days.
