Genesis 1:1 (KJV) "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."

August 23, 2015 Like the Most High “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” (Isaiah 14:14)
These are two of the “I will’s” of Satan—or Lucifer—as he aspired to usurp the throne of God as ruler of the universe (see Isaiah 14:12-15;Ezekiel 28:11-17). Not content to be “the anointed cherub,” the highest of the angelic hierarchy (Ezekiel 28:14), he wanted to be God, and this monstrous pride became “the condemnation of the devil” (1 Timothy 3:6), so that he is now “fallen from heaven” and will soon be “brought down to hell” (Isaiah 14:12, 15).
Lucifer, of course, is not the Creator, for he was “created” (Ezekiel 28:15) himself. It would seem therefore that for him to rationalize his ambition to be like the most High, he must somehow persuade himself that he is like the most High—that is, that God is a created being like himself, and thus can be defeated. He only had God’s word that he had been created by Him, and he evidently chose not to believe what God said (just as do multitudes of men and women today).
He, like they, chose rather to believe that the eternal cosmos had somehow created them all by its own powers. The great cosmos (call it Mother Nature, perhaps) has “created” spirit beings, as well as men and women, and all the worlds inhabited by them. In this scenario, the true Creator God is viewed as only one of many. Therefore, He is vulnerable to defeat—or so Satan evidently believes.
Thus, Lucifer became the first evolutionist, and this great lie by which he deceived himself became the basis of his later deception of Eve and then of the founders of all the varied pantheistic religions of the world, as well as modern evolutionism and “New Age” philosophies. Nevertheless, God is still on His throne, and “the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings” (Revelation 17:14). HMM

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.’”
