The-End-Times-460x474Matthew 7:13-14 [Full Chapter]

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

There are two types of mankind – saved sinners, and unrepentant sinners.  Flawed, secular “wisdom”, says that we are basically good; what does Scripture say? From Jeremiah 17 King James Version:

Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

“Culture” has its own version of accountability; the Bar/Bat Mitzvah, wherein at 13, you become a man ( 12 for a woman).

From Wikipedia:  According to Jewish law, when Jewish boys become 13 years old, they become accountable for their actions and become a bar mitzvah. A girl becomes a bat mitzvah at the age of 12 according to Orthodox and Conservative Jews, and at the age of 13 according to Reform Jews. Prior to reaching bar mitzvah, the child’s parents hold the responsibility for the child’s actions. After this age, the boys and girls bear their own responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics, and are able to participate in all areas of Jewish community life. Traditionally, the father of the bar mitzvah gives thanks to God that he is no longer punished for the child’s sins (Genesis Rabba, Toldot 23:11). In addition to being considered accountable for their actions from a religious perspective, b’nai mitzvah may be counted towards a minyan (prayer quorum) and may lead prayer and other religious services in the family and the community.

For Catholics, First Communion is a sort of parallel to this, leading to confirmation.  What does Scripture say?

There is no definite reference to a particular “age” of accountability; rather, this is based on one’s ability to comprehend and respond to the message, a recognition of and understanding good and evil.

From  “A person becomes personally accountable when he or she reaches a point where they have the spiritual and mental facility to grasp the issues. This does not mean they are not sinful, but only that they have not reached a place where they can understand.”

“…the issue seems to boil down to that point in time when one can understand and respond to the convicting work of the Spirit as described in John 16.”

For me that was at age 6.

II Tomothy 2:15  is a DIRECTIVE, not a suggestion that we study His word.  How differently would history have played out if Christendom had heeded this directive. Those purporting to represent Him would not have sought the blood of righteous men whose only “crime” was to preach His word, or those who were also martyred for merely putting the Bible into the hands of the layperson, not the “doctrines of devils” taught by flawed corporate religion:

1 Timothy 4:1-3King James Version (KJV)

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

The New Testament is replete with books containing (by their names) the real first churches, established by the Apostles via indwelling of the Holy Spirit; thus able to spread the message of Christ to folks far and wide, being able to speak to them in their own languages:

Corinthians, (Corinth) Galatians, (Galatia) Ephesians, (Ephesus) Philippians, (Philippi in eastern Macedonia) Colossians, a city about 100 miles east of Ephesus, (church of Colossae) and Thessalonians, (Thessalonica).

Sainthood – Who are the saints? I don’t know the number of official Catholic saints; however this is the Scriptural viewpoint:

Deuteronomy 33:2

And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

Psalm 30:4

Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Psalm 31:23

O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

Psalm 34:9

O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

Psalm 37:28

For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

Psalm 97:10

Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Psalm 148:14

He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the Lord.

There are many more references in Psalms. The basic fact is:  We, those who call on Him to be the Lord of our lives, and seek to follow Him; WE are the saints, NOT a selected few who meet corporate dictates, and are “appointed” sainthood.

Righteousness –  Contrary to works theology, we can bring NOTHING to the table:

Isaiah 64:6 [Full Chapter]

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

So having no real righteousness of our own, where do we obtain it?

For my Catholic brethren, first the passage from their Bible, which was kept from the faithful for centuries:

Ephesians 2Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

And you, when you were dead in your offences, and sins,

Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of this air, of the spirit that now worketh on the children of unbelief:

In which also we all conversed in time past, in the desires of our flesh, fulfilling the will of the flesh and of our thoughts, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest:

But God, (who is rich in mercy,) for his exceeding charity wherewith he loved us,

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together in Christ, (by whose grace you are saved,)

And hath raised us up together, and hath made us sit together in the heavenly places, through Christ Jesus.

That he might shew in the ages to come the abundant riches of his grace, in his bounty towards us in Christ Jesus.

For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, for it is the gift of God;

Not of works, that no man may glory.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus in good works, which God hath prepared that we should walk in them.

11 For which cause be mindful that you, being heretofore Gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called circumcision in the flesh, made by hands;

12 That you were at that time without Christ, being aliens from the conversation of Israel, and strangers to the testament, having no hope of the promise, and without God in this world.

13 But now in Christ Jesus, you, who some time were afar off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition, the enmities in his flesh:

15 Making void the law of commandments contained in decrees; that he might make the two in himself into one new man, making peace;

16 And might reconcile both to God in one body by the cross, killing the enmities in himself.

17 And coming, he preached peace to you that were afar off, and peace to them that were nigh.

18 For by him we have access both in one Spirit to the Father.

19 Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners; but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and the domestics of God,

20 Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone:

21 In whom all the building, being framed together, groweth up into an holy temple in the Lord.

22 In whom you also are built together into an habitation of God in the Spirit.

Ephesians 2  King James Version

And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Our only righteousness is that imputed by Christ’s sacrifice; God the father, sees us through His son’s perfect life, and by His sacrifice, we obtain His righteousness – we have none of our own.

As for “Purgatory”? With the new covenant, there IS NO Purgatory.

Hebrews 9:26-28King James Version (KJV)

26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Critical Mass, 2016

If Donald Trump did not exist, he would have to be invented.

Illegal immigration, China, the economy, radical Islam? Yes, they are all important issues, as are others, but they are mere talking points compared to what frightens the establishment the most; voter sentiments of which our “esteemed” politicians and journalists may not even be aware.

Trump has tapped into, but, as yet, not fully exploited the two most critical issues, not just of the 2016 election, but the ones that will determine whether or not the United States will survive as a republic.

They are also the two issues that, if not addressed, will make it impossible to solve any of the other problems the country faces.

The political-media establishment is hopelessly corrupt and, although we have elections, we no longer have representative government.

And the American people are fed up.

Well, well… YouTube’s (Google’s) thought police has blocked this edition of Intellectual Froglegs.  Too much truth for their delicate stomachs?

“Under normal conditions, my best ideological match for president…hands down is Ted Cruz—but these are not normal times. And the more I watch events unfold, the more I am convinced that Donald Trump is the only candidate with the clout, the resources and the media savvy to stand up against the MASSIVE DC Political machine..and their accomplices in the media.

With all due respect to the heroic Ted Cruz—he just hit the DC GOP with his best shot— calling out the liars on the Senate floor—and they didn’t even flinch. The media ignored him—and the DC GOP ignored him.”

Anyone that has both the left AND right running scared, in my book is doing something right.


A boomer walks into a local drug store, seeking a tried and true remedy for cleansing a belligerent G.I. – An enema bag.

Technology being what it is, this item wasn’t to be found.  They did have the familiar hot water bottle, but without the necessary attachments.

Consulting their pharmacist, a personable fellow of African descent, he expressed his frustration. The pharmacist was able to tell him that he had seen that device. “Where did you see it?” asks the boomer;  He answers, “Cameroon”.

His expression showing both seriousness and sincerity, the boomer, biting his tongue, relieves the tension by stating “I can’t travel 8,000 miles just to get that!” He laughs, the pharmacist laughs; and suggests he go online to find one.

So much for modern technology…


Extremism — reblogged

Here the object is to tag a fairly simple thought onto a more complex post, Extremism byKeith DeHavelle. Extremism considers the possibility of reforming Islam.

The Middle East is starting to look more sensible about Islamic extremism than is the Obama administration. Isn’t that a sad thing to say?

Here is a Saudi Arabian author being interviewed on television, and he describes the problem. He notes, correctly, that there is little difference between the “moderate” Muslim clerics and the most radical Muslim Brotherhood jihadist supporters: Both groups preach the same concepts from the same revered sources. He suggests that Islam needs a Reformation like Christianity had, and not just a Luther but a Calvin as well:

The words “failed state” and America are not used too often in the same sentence but perhaps it is time that they were. 

The words “failed state” and Mexico are used frequently in the same sentence and there is a reason for that.  Now something is happening in America that has been happening in Mexico that may make those words applicable here.

What is it?

Recently Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson toured the Arizona border along with Sheriff Paul Babeu.  The tour was to highlight the issue of illegal immigration for Carson’s campaign.  But the event highlighted something else that the Democrats and the Washington establishment don’t want to talk about.

We have lost control of part of America.

Sheriff Babeu pointed out to Carson that upwards of 70 miles into the United States, drug cartels control the countryside.  Think about that for a second.  Up to 70 miles north of the Mexican border, drug cartels have operational control of the countryside.

The definition of sovereignty for a nation is not only national borders but the ability to control the territory within those borders.

America is losing its national sovereignty to Mexican drug cartels and most of the major candidates for President don’t care. Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush don’t want to do anything about the border.  They do want to give Amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens who broke America’s laws to enter this nation.  They don’t have time for the American victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens.

A few years ago, I was on the Arizona border and I spoke with ranchers who lived there.  They were prisoners on their own property.  The could not leave their ranches for more than a few hours. If they did, their homes would be looted and their property destroyed. 

The destruction of American sovereignty is being aided and abetted by the usual left wing suspects.  Left wing lawyers are suing the Border Patrol over the death of an illegal alien. This illegal alien was a passenger on a boat trying to smuggle illegal aliens into the United States.  The driver of the boat refused to stop and eventually the Border Patrol boat and the smuggler’s boat collided.  The illegal alien was thrown into the ocean and died.

A criminal is killed while committing a crime and the left wants to sue America for it.

In Texas, ranchers live in fear of illegal aliens being injured while trespassing on their property.  Again, they are worried about being sued by leftwing lawyers.

There is a simple solution. Congress can pass a law that states anyone in this nation illegally lacks the standing to sue.  But Congress won’t do that because a majority of them support illegal aliens more than they support real Americans.

There is a reason why Donald Trump is surging in the polls.  He is speaking about this issue when the Democrats and most Republicans wish this issue would just go away. 

America is losing her sovereignty to a failed state.  The tragedy is neither the Republicans nor the Democrats give a damn as long as they can pander to a group they think will extend their grip on power. 

The sad truth is there isn’t any difference between Democrats and the Establishment Republicans.


Kerry is a waste of human skin. Another example of Rogue Government.

If U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has his way the United Nations will be able to say if Americans are allowed to have their Second Amendment rights. He has just signed an anti-gun treaty with the United Nations that the U.S. Senate has already said it is against.

The treaty Kerry signed without authorization from the Senate would create an un-Constitutional registry of all US gun buyers and would lead to the UN controlling American’s gun rights. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday signed a controversial U.N. riling U.S. lawmakers who vow the Senate will not ratify the agreement.

Unlike any other Government

Just found this in Gary Hunt’s submissions at Outpost of Freedom’s archives. We need this type of “slap in the face” to knock us out of our stupor, and take some aggressive action. If we wait much longer, we will find ourselves in the same situation as Dietrich Bonhoeffer.


Dietrich Bonhoeffer

(German: [ˈdiːtʁɪç ˈboːnhœfɐ]; February 4, 1906 – April 9, 1945) was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian, dissident anti-Nazi, and founding member of the Confessing Church. His writings on Christianity’s role in the secular world have become widely influential, and many have labelled his book The Cost of Discipleship a modern classic.[1]

Apart from his theological writings, Bonhoeffer became known for his staunch resistance to the Nazi dictatorship. He strongly opposed Hitler’s euthanasia program and genocidal persecution of the Jews.[2] He was also involved in plans by members of the Abwehr (the German Military Intelligence Office) to assassinate Adolf Hitler. He was arrested in April 1943 by the Gestapo and executed by hanging in April 1945 while imprisoned at a Nazi concentration camp, just 23 days before the German surrender.

explaining where we came from; What happened along the way; and, What we need to do to get back to where we belong


Gary Hunt
July 4 (Independence Day
In the Year of our Lord 2009
In the Year of our Independence the 233rd


If you accept that we are currently governed by a government established under and by the authority of the Constitution, you may wish to stop reading, now. The intention of what follows is to bring to light only some of the many misdeeds of government. It also is intended to help the reader to understand what thought process the Founding Fathers used, when they created a government unlike any other government every before seen on Earth.

The Constitution was written as a set of guidelines for the operation of the government. As Thomas Jefferson said, “Let the Constitution be the chains that bind the Government”.

We will explore where government has gone astray by violating that very document which created it, and in violation of the sacred oath they took on assuming their office of public trust.

We will also enter the realm of Administrative Agencies, perhaps even more destructive of our Liberty and Freedom than the violations of the Constitution.

When I was young, I recall the many political cartoons in Life, Look and the Saturday Evening Post  magazines. There were some that ridiculed the Soviet Union, regarding its bureaucracy and hero worship. A cartoon might show a long line of people standing before an administrative building. A passer-by asks the woman at the end of the line, “what are you standing in line for?” To which the lady responds, “I don’t know, but with this many people in line, it must be something I need!” We now find ourselves standing in line, we know not what for, more often than ever before. Waiting for something to happen that will improve our condition.

The Soviets were very prompt to create heroes out of the multitude of government personnel. In honoring a “hero” for is work, the citation might read, “For rescuing a dead cat from a fallen tree.” The idea, quite simply, was to establish in the people the fact that all government employees are, somehow, superior because they just they do their jobs — those jobs which they applied for and were given, knowing that the everyday duties of those jobs included such risks that are now rewarded, by both government and press, with accolades of “Hero”. If a non-government person is the recipient of such an award, it is, most often, a child.

Firefighters who , fifty years ago, entered burning homes and brought family members and dogs out, alive, received only a paycheck on Friday. Today, we have entered that realm of hero worship.

This happened during the period of the McCarthy Hearings of the 1950s. Every effort was made to expose those who wanted to destroy the fabric of the self-governed nation, and replace it with Communistic, share the wealth, equality for all; to each based upon his needs, from each based upon his abilities.

Perhaps it was a form of Eugenics — to try to expel those who would tear down what the Founding Fathers sacrificed so much for to build. If so, it is one that I can agree with.

People who come to this country with the intention of ignoring, or even eliminating, its culture, heritage and way of government, do not belong here. They are, at best, misguided into thinking that what was earned so dearly will be abandoned so lightly. This is America; This nation used to be a beacon to the world. The government, by submitting to whatever evils which have swayed them from what was intended, have betrayed the people of this Great Nation. The Founding Fathers, in their foresight, have left us instructions on how to right that wrong. It is our obligation; It is our duty, to return to and preserve — the United States of America.

Complete column on this subject at this address:

Reposted from an Outpost of Freedom blog; which I’d originally posted on Sept 11, 2011.  Ironically, I was unable to unearth it from their archives, via their address.  It simply isn’t listed. (1984 come to life)

From Outpost Of Freedom – The misdeeds of government

Utilizing factions for political purposes

Let’s suppose that a faction (a group of people with power and control in mind) wanted to create a situation where this country was filled with factions; each being against one or more of the other factions. As in times past, coalitions will be formed, but they will be weak.

However, at that point, it would be easy for those who have the best control, now, to increase that control; under the guise of maintaining “law and order” — without regard to the Constitution.

This would allow them to manipulate the lesser factions, turning them one against the others.

So, if we were looking from the government’s perspective, what is the first step in the implementation of that plan? Well, first we need some factions. However, our immigration policy was designed to foster assimilation, not faction. So, we will have to revise the immigration policy (quotas, education or experience requirements, criminal records checks, etc.) so that we can remove what we can, without exposing our plan. We can even provide amnesty to allow large amounts of people, even those who could care less about being Americans; only concerned about what they can get for free and how much money they can make to send home. By granting amnesty, we will have removed any requirement, or for that matter, any incentive to learn the language and assimilate into the American way of life.

That, however, will not be enough to get the job done as quickly as we would like. So, what can we do to create factions large enough to generate the conflict that we need to strengthen our control over the people?

Suppose we ignore the laws on immigration that are on the books, and then we can also keep the states from enforcing federal law, since it is “our duty”, not theirs. We can allow hundreds of thousands to cross the borders, illegally. If they are caught by the charade we have in front of the people to catch them (U.S. Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement), we can let them go on their own recognizance until their hearing. That will give them the opportunity to ‘disappear’ and still stay within the country.

Everybody that comes in will be a part of a faction, so we will set no limits on what/who is allowed to bypass our immigration laws. That will shorten the time to the uprising of the factions, considerably.

So, what else can we do? Well, if we can create inflation, the purchasing power of the average citizen will be down, so they will be primed and ready to blame any faction for whatever befalls them. They will not blame us because we are going to act like we know what we are doing, and that it is not the government, rather, the foreigners, who are creating the problem.

We can aggravate the situation even more by having looser laws for immigrants than we have for citizens. We are trying it in California, where when someone is stopped for DUI, if they are a citizen, their car gets impounded. If they are not a citizen, we will let them keep their car — even if they don’t have a driver’s license. That should really begin to create tension, and, if it works, we can spread it to other states.

We will also keep the wars going so that people are thinking about waving the flag, while we trample it into the dirt. They think that we are protecting them, though we are actually distracting them and keeping their attention on the wars rather than seeing what is “behind the curtain”.

Our final tool has been in place for many years. It includes the sociological implications of “political correctness” and “diversity”. We have planted that seed well, so that if anybody steps out of line, those around them will force them back into compliance. We can see how well that is working by not allowing anybody to recognize that different factions with different interests, working at odds with each other, even exist.

I don’t believe that it will be very long before we are “forced” to rule this country, with an iron fist. Our plan is so well laid that we cannot fail!
