GONE WITH THE WIND:  One Problem Ended, Another Began

POLITICAL  POLITICAL  POLITICAL  POLITICAL  POLITICAL  POLITICAL

       YOUR PERSONAL GPS
You might reach your life's destination better if you remember
HERE WE WILL SOLVE WITH LAWS AND DOLLARS, PROBLEMS THAT TOO MANY PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD STILL MUST SOLVE WITH VIOLENCE AND CIVIL WAR - Marco Rubio

THE MAJORITY OF U.S. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS DON'T KNOW WITHIN 50 YEARS WHEN THE CIVIL WAR OCCURRED - Jim Leach


Margaret Mitchell published the Pulitizer prize winning Gone With The Wind, in 1936.  It is the best selling book of all time, more than 30 million copies world-wide.  The movie was made in 1939 and, adjusting for inflation, was the highest grossing movie ever, $1,450,400.  Set in Clayton County, Georgia and Atlanta.

THE HARRIS POLL SHOWED THE BOOK TO BE 2ND IN POPULARITY TO THE BIBLE


KATIE SCARLET O'HARA
Scarlet lied, stole two husbands, tried to commit adultery and did pretty much whatever it took to save herself, her family, and her land.  Her unethical and selfishness makes her a dynamic and believable character.  She has good and bad qualities, never knowing what she has until she loses it, starting with her mother, then her father, her best friend, Melanie and Rhett.

YOU CANNOT BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FAITH. REMEMBER LINCOLN, GOING DOWN ON HIS KNEES IN TIMES OF TRIAL - George W. Bush


SCARLET AND MAMMA
Hattie McDaniel was a wonderful "Mamma", opinionated and indomitable.  House servants were higher caste than the field slaves.  They were better fed, better clothed and did not get up at the morning bell.  When the South lost the war, in the book, slaves wished the masters would keep looking after them.

DESPITE WHAT PUNDITS WANT US TO THINK, CONTESTED PRIMARIES AREN'T CIVIL WAR, THEY ARE DEMOCRACY AT WORK - Sarah Palin


RECALLED LINES

"I'LL THINK ABOUT THAT TOMORROW - TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY"
"FRANKLY, MY DEAR, I DON'T GIVE A DAMN"
"IF THE NORTH WANTS THE BLACKS, THEY CAN HAVE THEM"

When today's African Americans burn down cities, riot and loot, or , parade claiming "Black Lives Matter" but shout "Pigs in a blanket, fry like bacon", referring to killing of another policemen.  Maybe we should tell Scarlet that she can keep them.  While they have freedom, a vast majority of them will not go to school, do not work and expect the government to take care of them.

WITH ONE TERRIBLE EXCEPTION, THE CIVIL WAR, LAW AND THE CONSTITUTION HAVE KEPT AMERICAN WHOLE AND FREE = Anthony Lewis


DEPUTY DARREN H. GOFORTH
What exactly are the marching, banner carrying, chanting,  "Black Lives Matter" group celebrating?  Sheriff's Deputy Darren H. Goforth was pumping gas at a gas station in Texas, in uniform, when a black man walked up behind him, shot the Deputy in the back of the head and continued shooting him until his gun was empty.  There was no conversation between them and they had no other relationship.  It was just plain, cold-blooded murder.  THIS IS WHAT IS BEING CELEBRATED!  Officer Goforth leaves behind a wife and a 12 year old daughter and a 4 year old son.  The wife, a teacher, is left to rear the children alone.

IN THIS SAD WORLD OF OURS, SORROW COMES TO ALL; AND, TO THE YOUNG, IT COMES WITH BITTEREST AGONY BECAUSE IT TAKES THEM UNAWARE - Abraham Lincoln





MAY GOD COMFORT THE GOFORTH FAMILY

MAY GOD KEEP YOU AND YOUR'S SAFE

GOD BLESS AMERICA

MULTIPLE CHOICE? BY STEVE FINNELL
The following are multiple choice interpretations of Scripture.

Matthew 3:16 After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him,

Choices:
1. After being immersed, Jesus came up immediately from the water...
2. After being sprinkled, Jesus came up immediately from the water...
3. After having water poured on Him, Jesus came up immediately from the water....

Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Choices of Interpretations:
1. Peter said to them, "Repent for the forgiveness of sins and be baptized as a testimony of your faith to the community; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
2. Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ because your sins have already been forgiven; and you have already received the gift of the Holy Spirit, the minute you believed."
3. Peter said said to them, "You were saved the minute you believed, now be baptized so you can join the denomination of your choice"
4. Peter said to them, "Your sins were forgiven the minute you believed; now be baptized as an act of obedience.
5. Peter said to them, "You have had your sins forgiven by faith only, water baptism is nothing but works that you have to do in order to become a member of the Baptist church."
6. Peter said to them, "Do be concerned about repentance and water baptism for the forgiveness of sins; because in the original Greek, for means, because of, and remember God is not smart enough to give mankind a trustworthy translation of His word.

Romans 6:4-6 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so that we too might walk in newness of life.

Choices of Interpretations.
1.Therefore we have been buried with Him through sprinkling...
2. Therefore we have been buried with Him through pouring...
3. Therefore we have been walking in newness of life before we were buried in baptism, because we were saved the minute we believed.
4. Therefore we have not been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. We had faith only and walked in the newness of life. Baptism had nothing to do with our walk. Water baptism is nothing but a work of the Law of Moses or perhaps just a good deed.


Men have a choice, they can believe the Scriptures, as written or pick an interpretation invented by denominational church leaders. WE ALL HAVE A CHOICE!

(All Scripture from: NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE)
