April 26, 2015 To Be Like Him “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:15-16)
Scripture admonishes us as Christians to be like our Lord and Savior in “all manner of conversation,” or all manner of life. We are His earthly witnesses, and we must so order our lives that we are an adequate reflection of Him.
We are to be like Him in the purity of our lives. As our text points out, “Be ye holy; for I am holy.” “Every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure” (1 John 3:3). “Follow . . . holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).
Our daily walk and lives should be patterned after Him. “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked” (1 John 2:6). “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another” (1 John 1:7).
Furthermore, we are to be like Him in love. “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God . . . for God is love” (1 John 4:7-8). We are to be willing to suffer unjustly without revenge, “because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth” (1 Peter 2:21-22).
Being like Him involves a life of service, as well. “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you” (John 13:14-15).
Christ has forgiven each of us many times, even though our sins grieve Him deeply. He stands ready to forgive and restore fellowship, and so should we. With His help, we can emulate Him, even when we are wronged. “Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32). JDM
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. -Winston Churchill
Introduction to Fritz's World
My philosophy (ugh, I hate that word) is simple. Here to glorify God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I/we shall discuss the downfall of humankind, problems including cause and effect in our society, and solution(s).We'll be talking about God here as well as the politics of our country that have driven us to the brink of the precipice near which we all stand. My question is this. Do we continue off this cliff, or do we have a national repentance/revival/renewal and maybe gain a new foothold? Or have things progressed so far that the next actions will be by God and the beginnings of the end of time as we know it? While I attempt to fact check as much information as possible, posted here on the political scene, I cannot check it all. I receive a lot of information from other bloggers, and private e-mails, as well as from TV and internet news sources. I haven't the time or ability to fact check every bit of information that comes in and that I post. No swearing or profanity allowed. If you feel it necessary, use asterisks in place of said language to make your point. I think we are all well versed in the language of today so as to get the ideas you'll be trying to put forth. If you're not already a Christian I would like to suggest you watch the "You Tube" video titled, "Dr. Kent Hovind's Answer for the NWO Part 3," linked in the dark blue area below on the home page. Thanks and enjoy!

Abraham Lincoln Said It
We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.— Abraham Lincoln, April 30, 1863
Politics Not As Usual
Dr. Walter E. Williams, Economics at George Mason University said, ” God did not say, ‘Thou shalt not steal unless you’ve got a majority vote in congress.’”
