Bookless Libraries & Restricted Internet

Image
"You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them."
Ray Bradbury

By now you've likely heard of Federal law attempts from cable and phone companies' likely desires to be allowed to charge tier level payment plans for internet usage similar to cable tv tier plans. O the uproar that would be! Maybe another good reason for people to be active in political and voting education?
 Before I digress, I want to say I think people should hold on to their books and read the hard copies. I still buy and read them. Internet is about to get expensive and then many will be without it or maybe it'll become a tax payer entitlement for the poor.
 Bookless libraries? I'd rather die. Give me library or give me death. I love the musty smell of old books. Isn't there a Constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to bare books? And what's the matter with Texas?

First Responders, Disaster, Digging and Praying

Image
As a BGRRT chaplain I also assisted Samaritans purse whenever possible because i believe that is where it all starts, but loved taking people's rakes and shovels from people to give the victims a break while i share the Gospel with them.  My first experience with disaster resonse was in the San Diego 2003 fires, after Samaritans Purse drove all the way from North Carolina to help. I became certified afterwards.And then responded after the hurricanes shortly after.
  My first official response as a Billy Graham Rapid Response chaplain was in 2003 Ft. Meyers, Florida after the five hurricanes. Then in 2005 was hurricanes Katrina and Rita. I chose to go to Groves, TX and Shreveport, LA.     But went to New Orleans the next year.  I can't pick a favorite story except one man in the St. Bernard Parish in New Orleans in 2006 came to our food/supplies location and hadn't smiled since before Katrina. His wife died of cancer a month before hurricane and they lost everything. We …

Communism, Islam, The Vatican & Obama

In order to address the relation of Islam to the title of my blog, you must see my previous blog,
"What do the Vatican and Jesuits Have To Do With Hitler, Islam and Jerusalem?"
http://michaeldtobin.blogspot.com/2013/03/pope-francisobama-israeli-trip.html?m=1
Then you will see the real reason the U.S. Embassy was removed from the Vatican. But let this article below serve as an accurate, immediate reference to how Communism and Socialism is being enforced in such a brutally illegal way against religion and people's beliefs, and targeting whole societies against one another to further its' goals.

The Gospel in your Hand
Posted on October 18, 2013
http://gregburdine.com/2013/10/18/the-gospel-in-your-hand/
 One of the main reasons believers don’t share their faith is that they feel ill-prepared.  Through Evangelism Explosion, I have discovered a a simple memory tool you can use to share a Gospel presentation – your hand!  Each finger represents a key point of the Gospel.


Using the five fingers on your hand, each finger represents a key point of the Gospel. It’s easy to learn, hard to forget, and you always have it with you. It’s a “hands-on” approach to sharing your …

Malaysian Gov. Raids Bible Society Then Apologize, Kind of

Below is a Jakarta Post article, followed by another websites comments from outraged citizens, in a nation of so called freedom of worship. All of the comments ring true of our own country, by-the way.

Raid on Bible society regrettable:
M'sian unity council
 http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2014/01/07/raid-bible-society-regrettable-msian-unity-council.html


The newley-formed National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) says the recent raid on the Bible Society of Malaysia in Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya, was a “blatant disregard” for the agreed solution to the distribution of Christian publications in Bahasa Malaysia.

“NUCC regrets the raid and confiscation of the Bibles (by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department or Jais),” council chairman Samsuddin Osman said Monday.

“It is a blatant disregard for the 10-point solution made by the federal government in April 2011 and reiterated by the prime minister in October 2013.”

“We call on the government to ensure compliance with the s…

Ten Commandments/Satan Statue in Oklahoma Capitol

“Destruction is all around us,” said a woman helped by Samaritan’s Purse. “Shops are closed. We stand in line for hours for a loaf of bread. We can’t afford fruits and vegetables. Our only hope is in the Lord, Jesus Christ. We need your prayers to keep us safe.” http://www.samaritanspurse.org/article/aid-for-syrian-refugees/?utm_source=SPFacebook&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=m_Y000-SOCM_SocialMedia

  The quote above was fromFranklinGrahams latest update from the Samaritans Purse ministry, which I've had the opportunity to work with several times as I've mentioned in my profile on this blog.
  Meanwhile, US atheists from New York plan a Satan statue in Oklahoma capitol . So my question is. Will the Gothic gargoils on early American rooftops get to come down lower also? While America rejects God, the Middle East is accepting Him. The only Him that gets an uppercase H.
  It's no secret what the Bible reveals about the devil, and all of mankind in the past, presen…

Hell and Great Lakes Freezing Over/SuperiorSet to Complete Freeze

Ice Expert Predicts Lake Superior Will Completely Freeze Over This Wint

http://m.cnsnews.com/news/article/barbara-hollingsworth/ice-expert-predicts-lake-superior-will-completely-freeze-over

(CNSNews.com) – Lake Superior hasn’t completely frozen over in two decades.
But an expert on Great Lakes ice says there’s a “very high likelihood” that the three-quadrillion-gallon lake will soon be totally covered with ice thanks to this winter’s record-breaking cold.

The ice cover on the largest freshwater lake in the world hit a 20-year record of 91 percent on Feb. 5, 1994.

Jay Austin, associate professor at the Large Lakes Observatory in Duluth, Minn., told CNSNews.com that he expects that record will be broken this winter when the most northern of the Great Lakes becomes totally shrouded in ice.

The thickness of the ice on Lake Superior “varies tremendously,” from a very thin sheet in some areas near the coast to several feet thick in other spots, Austin says. The  …

Singer/Songwriter/Actor, Paul Williams

So where is Paul Williams? I know nobody reads my blogs, but that's who I write for; the most fortunate of nobodies who inadvertantly stumble upon such a privilege.
Paul Hamilton Williams, Jr.(born September 19, 1940 is an American composer, singer-songwriter, director, and actor. He is what the entertainment industry calls a "quadruple threat," because he is at least prificient at five industry professions. But real quickly, here's a shot of how many of us remember him from back in the day: Paul is the guy on the left.
I've been a Paul Williams fan since childhood, but haven't seen hide nor tail of the legend in many years, and just yesterday I finally researched him after a few months of making a mental note to do so.
My earliest memories of Williams is from his songs I heard on the radio as a child. Then I remember him on various talk shows and variety shows. Then, before I was even a teen, I was shocked and intrigued when I saw the movie, "Phantom o…
