0223_An Autobiography: The Atheism That Saved Me—by Robert Morlan

The Atheism That Saved Me  by Robert Morlan

Last Tuesday I bought The Atheism That Saved Me, by Robert (Bob) Morlan, and finished reading it by the next morning.  It is a very valuable book, which shares insight into why some people choose to believe God does not exist.  When Bob met his future wife Jann, Bob was an atheist and Jann was an agnostic.  They continued in those beliefs for many years.

In his book, Bob reveals how God rescued him and his wife — even though they were two people who had no interest in Him whatsoever.

You can email Bob and order his book at:
bobmorlan211@gmail.com

(He has self-published his book, so ordering directly from him will help him the most to pay for publishing.)

The cost of each copy of his book ordered directly from him, is $15 plus $4 shipping and handling.

0190_New book: My Favorite Life-Changing Stories_by Dr. Joe L. Wheeler_great book of encouragement

Yesterday morning I bought Dr. Joe Wheeler’s latest book of true stories:   My Favorite Life-Changing Stories. I read the entire book today. You can see and order the book at:  http://joewheelerbooks.com/

My Favorite Life-Changing Stories

My Favorite Life-Changing Stories

My Favorite Life-Changing Stories

This is the fourth book in “My Favorite” inspirational story series.

2017: Tradepaper. Short, true, life-changing epiphany stories.

Which story was my favorite?

This evening I called Dr. Joe to tell him I had finished reading his newest book.  He asked me which story I liked best.

Where could I begin, except to say that I loved them all.  They were all vivid in my mind.

Then I decided I should talk about one of the stories, and chose the last one in the book, since I had just completed it a few minutes earlier.  The message that stood out to me in that story, was that we should stop brooding over our failures of the past.  Instead we should analyze our mistakes, and figure out how to do better next time.

Then I shared with him messages I remembered from six or seven other stories.  Then I told him things I learned from his introduction to the book, introductions to the stories, and the Epilogue.  In those sections Dr. Joe shares some of his insights, struggles and victories.  One of the struggles he speaks of is the temptation to forget and take credit for success, when it is actually God who provides the abilities and opportunities.  That is a common human struggle.

Some characteristics emphasized within this powerful collection of stories:

Within My Favorite Life-Changing Stories are found displayed many different important characteristics.  Among them are:  honesty; compassion; forgiveness; repentance; perseverance even after repeated failures; patience; verbalizing expressions of appreciation; bravery; kindness; self-control; reliability; generosity; determination; and reverence and obedience to God.

The stories encourage us to realize that no matter what our condition in life, we need to look ahead, and trust God.  He holds our lives in His hands. Continue reading

0177_Epidemic in our country: believing the worst (or best) without any knowledge_Link to Goebbels’ quote about repeating big lie (people will believe it)

February 10, 2017

In Blog Post 0178 you can read Joseph Goebbels’ quote  — it talks about making up a huge lie and repeating it over and over to manipulate people.  You can also read his quote in Quotation 26 on the Quotations page of this website.

We need to be slow to judge people, and slow to anger.  Those who wish to control us, use against us, our weakness to swiftly judge and to get angry.  They keep repeating lies — lies that are designed to divide.

It is difficult to avoid judging people,
when quick harsh judgment is all around us every day.

Almost no matter where we go, people seem to be angry, saying bad things about people — frequently these uncomplimentary words are about people they don’t even know.  People often seem to be eager to cut someone else down.  These harsh unkind words are not only focused on strangers, but just as easily shift focus to people close to home:  people in our schools, our churches, at work, in our neighborhoods, clubs …  and in our own families .

Blog post 0090 goes into detail about “Label-Libel” — a term I found in a book
from a New Mexico teacher supply store.

Human nature is a combination of both good and bad.  Those who have evil goals in mind to control other people, frequently take advantage of the weaknesses of human nature (greed, selfishness, dishonesty, pride, vengeance, gossip, hatred, anger, impatience).  They encourage and feed these weaknesses, in order to divide us from each other, so that they can accomplish their own selfish goals.

Soviets in the Classroom… America’s Latest Education Fad
by Charlotte Iserbyt  [link to “Soviets in the Classroom” 1986 – here]

Federal, UN and Soviet control of education content in our classrooms, is extensive.  The heavy influence of Soviet education in our classrooms was made official in 1985.  People need to become aware of the agreements our country has with Soviet Russia, and need to try to stop Soviet influences in our schools.  Parents need to do whatever is possible to protect their children and grandchildren from the mind-altering mind-control that is taking place in schools.

Read about America’s education cooperation with Soviet Russia in the attached article, written in 1986:  “Soviets in the Classroom … America’s Latest Education Fad.”  Note, Charlotte Iserbyt, the author of the article, says her article was originally boycotted in our country.

Here is one paragraph from her article “Soviets in the Classroom”

“What do the Soviets—who kidnapped 10,000 Afghan children and shipped them to the Soviet Union for “re-education” and in the spring of 1989 used poison gas and sharpened shovels to disperse a nationalistic demonstration in Soviet Georgia, killing at least twenty persons and injuring 200—have to offer our children in the way of school materials? What does a country have to offer our children in the way of school materials which, according to an 1987 “out-of-print” book by American Federation of Labor—Council of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) entitled Cruel and Usual Punishment: Forced Labor in Today’s USSR, holds tens of thousands of political prisoners in Soviet prisons, labor camps, and psychiatric hospitals, including between four and five million non-political prisoners in slave labor camps? What does a country which publishes children’s books for disinformation purposes overseas—and in the case of books distributed in India, portrays America as “rich, uncaring, and prejudiced,” and compares us with the Brahmin caste, which is the ruling caste much resented by the disadvantaged in India—have to offer our children in the way of school materials?”  [see the entire article — 2015-05-02 Soviets in the Classroom…America’s Latest Education Fad_Charlotte Iserbytre] Continue reading

0173_UN has never been our friend_The UN-American United Nations by Steve Farrell_Charlotte Iserbyt (“Soviets in the Classroom”)

The push for a Communist United States continues.
Ignore the laughter — this is real.

The United Nations was never a friend of the United States of America

Note:  See below the overwhelming Communist and Socialist membership of those who started the United Nations, and will see the continued Communist control
of the United Nations.

Note:  Alger Hiss is instrumental in the forming of the UN, and is its first Secretary General.  In previous and forthcoming blog pieces you will read of Alger Hiss in connection with Whittaker Chambers.  They were Soviet espionage agents (spies) who regularly transferred US secrets to Moscow.  They worked together, and they (and their wives) became close friends.

The following is taken from:
“The UN-American United Nations”
by Steve Farrell
http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/un/unamerican.htm#.WJpqlPJauSp

Truth 1: The UN is no friend to American ideals.

  1. The UN’s Founders were known Communists

“If it’s true that the personality, purpose, and accomplishments of an organization are highly affected by its leadership, then membership in the United Nations spelled trouble from the start. Of the 17 individuals identified by the US State Department as having helped shape US policy leading to the creation of the United Nations, all but one were later identified as secret members of the Communist Party USA (3).

King Soopers in Conifer, Colorado annually lets the local Kiwanis Club set up tables to sell Joe Wheeler’s books – with all proceeds going to the local elementary schools and home schools in the Conifer area.  This year we were able to raise $3,468.59 for the project.

In the process of helping people purchase Joe’s books, I purchased many books for my own friends and family — and was able to work with Joe and get to know his work.  You can discover his books, and other things he offers, on his website:     www.joewheelerbooks.com

Below is the text of Joe Wheeler’s December 2016  blog about election 2016.  If you go to this printable link you will not only see the text of the article below, but a Norman Rockwell picture within the article, depicting the division between a husband and wife over the 1948 election in which Truman won over Dewey.  As always, Norman Rockwell beautifully and accurately captured a real piece of life in our county.
