Quitting smoking is possible!

You may think that quitting smoking is a total impossibility for you....

I'm going to tell you, that after 30 years of smoking cigarettes, not only is it possible, but I've been cigarette free for days (now over a year!), at the time of this writing!

Here are my LIVE current statistics:

I'd love for this blog to become one of the channels within your life, that you can turn to for support. You can't imagine how powerful just the slightest bit of encouragement can be!

Please follow this Blog and remember this quote:

Mark 10:27 - But Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible."

Gay Pride - Oxy-Moron or Perfect Description?

I know you come here to read my ramblings on the quality/consistency of Vaping gear and eLiquid, but as I had mentioned a few months ago, I was going to start to merge my Blogs together into this one.

I appreciate all of the comments, suggestions and encouragement that I've received (well, at least from most of you, lol!), but you need to remember that while I may be a "blogger / reviewer", I'm a Minister first.  And let me tell you, God has been keeping me extremely busy for the past few months.  So busy, that I've been aching to do some reviews, but I just can't make the time to do it...  (don't worry, I'm still going to be doing the reviews, I have a whole bunch of new/interesting things on their way here)

But right now I'd like to share something with you that's been on my heart for a while now.  It's the first of 2 posts I'm going to make on the subject...

I've been teaching many of the individuals that I've been discipling, that MANY WORDS have had their meanings changed over the years.  Some simple, non-biblical words that have been changed would include: COOL means NICE, BAD means GOOD, FAT now means PRETTY (even though they use a PH to spell it), DOPE means SMART (as in looking smart), TIGHT means COOL, FINE means HOT, etc. (oy, what a mess we've allowed our language to become!)

So let's look at this so-called "gay pride" and let's keep it Biblical...

Gay - According to the 1828 Webster's Dictionary, the word gay used to mean "Merry; airy; jovial; sportive; frolicksome. It denotes more life and animation than cheerful."  I've yet to meet a homosexual person that mimics that definition.  Clearly that's a misnomer, inasmuch as "bad" does not mean "good".  "Merry" can indeed be found in the Bible.  Feel free to look it up for yourself, but I can assure you, there's nothing homosexual about it.

Pride - This is one of those interesting words.  Don't you know that PRIDE was the thing that got Lucifer kicked out of Heaven AND God's good graces? (see Ezekiel 28:11-19)  Taking a look at the 1828 Webster's helps us to find that (not surprisingly), pride means, "1. Inordinate self-esteem; an unreasonable conceit of one's own superiority in talents, beauty, wealth, accomplishments, rank or elevation in office, which manifests itself in lofty airs, distance, reserve, and often in contempt of others. 2. Insolence; rude treatment of others; insolent exultation."

Woah, looks like both of those definitions for "pride" describe the homosexual community even better than the word "gay" does.  Imagine that... (hey, I'm not passing judgment, I'm just calling it out for what it is)

I once read something that said, "The ones who complain the loudest are closet homosexuals".  First of all, I'm not complaining AND I'm not "homophobic", lol!  You go ahead and BE as gay "as you wanna be".  What you choose to do with your parts is of no concern of mine.  It's when you try to normalize your behavior, convince the unwitting that you deserve "special rights", convince nominal Christians that "God likes the homosexual practices" and also poisoning the minds of our youth through the media, is when I get upset about it.

So what's the point of this post?

Being "gay" and performing homosexual acts is not only something to not take pride in, but most certainly does not FIT into the realm of Christianity.  If you're a practicing homosexual or a supporter, quit trying to convince yourself that it does...  God says otherwise...

Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming post that discusses this issue/problem in more detail...

Make no mistake about it...  There are some of you who will cry "foul" or try to accuse me of being hateful or disrespectful or in some way promoting hate or anti-gay speech, but what I'm writing about here couldn't be further from that.  It's like me telling you about "knives".  If I tell you that "they're sharp and could hurt", you don't scream "all knives are not sharp, they don't all hurt and you're a bigot for not liking and speaking negatively about knives!  My brother makes knives!".  All I'm doing is reporting what I see with my own eyes.  No interpretation and NO SPIN...  And just so we're clear, I have no interest in being politically correct.  I don't do it with my reviews and I'm not going to do it with my teachings either.

Jesus said you'd hate me for it, so go on...
You go right ahead and fulfill His Prophesy...

Matthew 24:9 - "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake."

Mark 13:13 - And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

(NOTE: Yes, I know Oxymoron is spelled incorrectly in the title.  It was my attempt at highlighting the moronic/ironic use of the words)
