FAITH! Defend It Or Have It Destroyed By Those Who Have None

Knowing this that the trying of your faith worketh patience but let patience have her perfect work.
James 1:3-4 KJV

In my kitchen quite early this morning, this scripture came to mind as I was frying potatoes with onions.  Usually in a hurry, I will just dice potatoes, zap them 4 minutes in the micro wave, brown them for 4 minutes in butter and call them "fried" potatoes.

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE, A BIG DIFFERNCE!


Having lots of time before calling Julie at 6:30AM, I took the time to peel and slice the potatoes, and onions.  After many years of "trial",  I heat the same iron skillet that my Mother used to fry potatoes when I was a child, sprayed with non-stick Pam with a wee bit of olive oil.  Then I layer potatoes, salt and pepper them, add onions and another layer of potatoes, salt and pepper them and add more onions.  I then cover the skillet, adjust the fire to medium and set the timer for 20 minutes.  By "faith" I will not peek.
In 20 minutes, I stir the crusty, browned potatoes off the the bottom of the skillet, replace the lid for another 10 minutes, stir again and the potatoes are ready to eat.  My faith is justified, I have a perfect work!  Don't you think so?  Yummy good!


This simple homily was triggered by a Gallup Report I received this morning.  The poll reported that Christianity is still the most prevalent religion in the United States with 78% of American adults identifying with some form of the Christian religion in 2011.  There are 15% who do not have a religious identity, less than 2% are Jewish and less than 1% are Muslim.

MY FRIENDS, WE ARE ALLOWING LESS THAN 1% OF THE PEOPLE TO LEAD THE REST OF US AROUND BY THE NOSE!

Saturday Night Live did a skit about Tim Tebow and Jesus Christ.  Now, I really never appreciate anything that shows disrespect to Christ, but this doesn't worry me.  THE ROMANS COULDN'T WIPE OUT CHRISTIANY WITH LIONS!

COULD YOU IMAGINE, HOWEVER, THE UP ROAR THAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED AROUND THE WORLD IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MOHAMMED INSTEAD OF CHRIST?  They would literally have the National Guard out to protect SNL.

Airport security strip searched this 110 pound, 84-year-old grandmother in a wheelchair.  Actually made her remove her pants and underwear.  Yet we cannot profile those who are obviously Muslims?  GO FIGURE!

AM I A-GONNA FLY WITH MY METAL HIP?  HMMMM! WAKE UP, AMERICA! 
The 9-11 bombers were Saudi Arabians.  Still and yet, we are giving $millions in foreign aid to the Saudis, who are among the world's richest, using money borrowed from China. We do this while the Saudi state controlled schools teach not only hatred of the Jews but also that all infidels must be killed, and that women are subhuman,  TO THEM, THEY CONSIDER ALL BUT 1% OF AMERICANS TO BE INFIDELS AND HALF ARE WOMEN! 

ONE MORE TIME, WAKE UP AMERICA!
      
78% of us, less than 1% of them!
.
WE MUST TURN THIS COUNTRY AROUND.  LETS START NOVEMBER 2012!

Really, my friends, it is up to us the voters.

God Bless You and Yours
