John the Baptist

6:22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, ask of me whatsoever you will, and I will give it you. 6:23 And he swore unto her, whatsoever you shall ask of me, I will give it you, unto the half of my kingdom. 6:24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, what shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist. 6:25 And she came in immediately with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that you give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist. 6:26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her. 6:27 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought and he went and beheaded him in the prison, (Mark 6:22-27 KJV)

          For those of you that do not know the entire saga of John the Baptist I will just say something of the characters that is in this part of his life. Herod is the king and he married Herodias who was his brother’s wife. John the Baptist, being the greatest prophet, was jailed. He told Herod that it was wrong to marry his brother’s wife. The wife had a daughter that was, evidently, very lovely.

          For some reason the wife did not like John the Baptist (I am assuming it was because he told Herod he was wrong to marry her which make her wrong to accept the marriage). When her daughter danced for Herod, he offered her anything she wanted, up to half his kingdom, Herodias saw a way to rid herself of John the Baptist.

          Women can entice men to do almost anything they desire. Just by looking at today’s headlines anyone can see it happening. And, to talk about negative results, these women are running amuck with our government, and this includes Clarence Thomas’ wife.

          After Herod said what he said he had to behead John the Baptist for his stepdaughter, not knowing his wife requested it. Some women can be deceptive and (as the old saying goes nothing is worse than a woman’s scorn) vile.

          God hates evil and Herod got the wrong end of the stick. His army took a beating in his next battle. I am sure God did not forget Herod’s wife nor the daughter. I am also sure the women of today will get the wrong end of the stick and so will the husbands and anyone attached to them.

          Years ago, I learned not to trust anyone at face value, especially if it is a woman. Years ago, I found myself is difficult situations because of a woman. I look at the women that have clout and I wonder who or what they did to make it where they are now. Some of the women in Congress is destroying it (not counting the numerous men). Be careful out there.

5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 5:2 And all of you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that has done this deed might be taken away from among you. 5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, (o. pneuma) have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that has so done this deed, 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when all of you are gathered together, and my spirit, (o. pneuma) with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit (o. pneuma) may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.               (1 Corinthians 5:1-5 KJV)

Politics, Politics, Politics

Seems as though two things I wrote about some time ago is coming true. I am not a prophet or a fortune teller, I just call it as I see it. There are times I am wrong but this time I called it right. The news of the day is about release of the first draft of the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion. This is an unusual case and it have not happened before. All Supreme Court decisions are kept in secrecy until the final ruling.

               My thoughts on the release of the document are that it is unlawful. Whether the release is illegal enough to go to court and the guilty person spend some time in jail is for the lawyers and courts to decide. I am not a lawyer. I am a clear minded person giving my opinion about a subject that does not affect me but effects members of my family and the populace as a whole.

               I do not understand how any man can make rules on a woman’s body. They say it is not about the body, but it is about the life of a child. I read a quip from a social media post that went something like this…tie a woman’s tubes and save one child but give one man a vasectomy and save many children. Many men have concerns about alimony and payment for children. The men make the children but don’t want to pay or care for them (nor does Congress). It is fact that people that want to do away with the Roe v Wade ruling are in the minority. Then there are those that are in the minority that are there because of their political party. That is a hell of a reason. This should not be political; it should be only between the woman and her doctor.

               I said that the new makeup of the Supreme Court will have bad repercussions and the new (one is not new) people lied during vetting. They are not worthy of being on the Supreme Court and their qualifications are suspect at best. They were put on the court to do the will of a political party. That is not a separation of the three parts of the federal government.

               When everything else is said and done there is the conflict-of-interest issue. In this case I will call it ‘bedroom whispers’. When a bed partner is a hard core whatever and is for or against a particular subject and the other person is a justice that is preparing to make an important ruling on that subject, the justice should recuse themselves. I never thought this justice should have been selected for the Supreme Court.  However, politics stood in the way of a more qualified, honest person.

               Politics have messed up quite a few things and it is not finished yet. I believe this is only the beginning. I have mentioned before that the book ‘The Rise and Fall of The Roman Empire’ shows what is happening here. All great nations have risen and fell and so will we. We are slowly on our way out and this fight at the Supreme Court, with its political influence, is only the beginning. I am afraid we cannot stop it.
