Bible Verses for #DeflateGate

Bible Verses for #DeflateGate

Guys, claims mean nothing. Truth matters. Accusations mean nothing. Proof matters.

Someone CLAIMS the Patriot’s balls were deflated, then ACCUSES the Patriots of cheating. Excuse my language, but that’s a bunch of malarkey!

The Bible comes down HARD on those who make false accusations, who bear false witness, and who set traps on the innocent. The Holy Bible is not nice to hypocrites.

(NOTE: I’ll transcribe the Bible verses used later)

Patriots Predictions for Super Bowl XLIX vs Seattle Seahawks.

VIDEO: The Patriots did not cheat in #deflategate! The Colts did!

2 psi does not prove the patriots cheated. But 13 psi makes me suspect the Colts cheated!

The Patriots Did Not Cheat in #DeflateGate. The Colts Did!

pats

When people heard that 11 of the 12 New England Patriots’ footballs were 2 psi too light at halftime, they all concluded the Patriots cheated. No! I say that the 2 psi drop indicates the Patriots did not cheat! Just read the rules.

The NFL Rulebook requires that both teams bring their balls to the NFL referees’s locker room for inspection before the game. Then the Operations Manual states, “Once the balls have left the locker room, no one, including players, equipment managers, ball boys, and coaches, is allowed to alter the footballs in any way.”

Did you read that? You cannot pump the footballs up or deflate them after the refs inspect them.

Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, that proves the Patriots cheated because their balls were lighter!”

No! The rules do not require the teams to maintain the balls in the required pressure range. In fact, since they cannot be altered after inspection, you can’t legally maintain the required 12.5 to 13.5 psi. Cold weather could cause Patriots balls to deflate and there’s nothing they could do.

“But the Indianapolis Colts footballs were fully inflated!”

Yea! Because THEY CHEATED!!

Maybe the Colts pumped their balls up during the game. Why? Maybe they schemed to drop a dime on the Patriots and accuse them of what any NFL team would be guilty of on a cold game day: under-inflated balls. And to make sure they didn’t also get in trouble, they topped their balls off.

If that’s true, they’re in violation of NFL Operations Manual which expressly prohibits altering the balls. They are the cheaters.

Oh, but they only inflated the balls to regulation pressure? That’s nice. But it doesn’t matter. The rules don’t allow you to alter the ball, even if it’s to bring the ball back to regulation pressure.

This would explain why the Colts’ players are acting really nice to the Patriots on twitter. Guilt.

This would explain why Colts’ Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson changed his story. Earlier this week, we heard Jackson noticed the Patriot’s football was soft after he intercepted it. But now he denies it. Maybe he never actually claimed that to begin with. It was all part of the script to sabotage the Patriots legacy.

This week, everyone will be doing science experiments on Wilson footballs. When the data comes in, it’s going to seem mighty peculiar that the Colts’ balls were still 13.5 psi at halftime.

Guys, today I made a bold accusation against the Colts. I’m a true New England Patriots fan. You frauds abandoned the team on account of 2 psi. Shame.

Why Deflategate Is Bad For Quarterbacks With Tiny Hands (and Good For The Patriots)

Deflategate is bad news for quarterbacks with tiny hands. Since everyone in the United States of Patriots-hate-ica wants to make a huge deal of football psi, the NFL commissioner will be forced to act in a comprehensive way that in the end nobody will like. Read more

Connecticut Earthquake caused by Windmills in Massachusetts?

When five earthquakes happen in a five and a half hour span in Oklahoma, you blame fracking. When five earthquakes happen in a five and a half hour span in Texas, you blame fracking. But when five earthquakes happen in a five and a half hour span in Connecticut, who do you blame? You sure can’t blame fracking!

I’ll tell you who I blame. Windmills. Read more

The Anti-Science Witch Hunt.

OK quakes a result of windmill construction -- FeedingJimmy.com

Guys, remember my post, Witch hunt witch hunt? I couldn’t help but think of it today as I read a post on boing boing about Climate scientist Michael Mann. He complains that Americans go on a witch hunt against Scientists with whom they disagree. He wrote about this in an article published in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, called “The Serengeti strategy: How special interests try to
intimidate scientists, and how best to fight back.”

Here we go again. Another witch hunt which hunt. Read more

NY Bans Fracking For Health Reasons

New York govenor Andrew Cuomo wants to ban fracking for health reasons. Guys, I live in West Texas. It’s a veritable forest of pump jacks and drilling rigs. If fracking was as bad as liberals believe, this area would be an uninhabitable toxic waste dump.

But it’s not. West Texas is a booming center of economic activity. People, like me, are coming here from all over in order to thrive. If anything, fracking is good for your health. Especially the health of your wallet. Read more

Christmas Haul 2014. Peterbilts and Guns!

Guys, the themes to this year’s Christmas were Peterbilt and guns. The boys got guns. Every item that I got related to Peterbilt. Some things that Julia got were related to Peterbilt.

A lot of people watched my Christmas Gift Giving guide 2014 and wondered how the stretch pants would go over with my wife. You know it’s pretty daring of me to purchase all my Christmas gifts at a truck stop. But it turned out to be the kind of big risk that paid off big time!

Guys, I bet you feel foolish for not thinking to buy your wife stretch pants along with Chocolate truffles for her to fill them out. That’s what it takes to wheel a hot chick. Take note, single guys.

Last Minute Gift Guide Christmas 2014

 

Guys, I did this last minute gift guide from the Peterbilt outside the Kent Kwik in Midland. You know, the one on Farm-to-Market Road 1788? Anyways, these truckstops are the best place for last minute gifts!

Don’t forget to watch my “Gift Giving Guide for Uncles” from the Christmas past. It’s four years old!

The Rats Eat Michelle Obama’s School Lunch #ThankYouMichelleObama

IMG_6754-0.PNG

You know what I say about health food. It isn’t healthy and it isn’t food. I scornfully put quotes around “heath” and then around “food” then nest those quotes inside another set of quotes and I write ““health”“food.””

Now there’s another dimension to the health food stupidity of godless liberals. And it’s the same thing that turns all liberal dreams into real-life nightmares: unintended consequences.

KCBS in San Francisco reports today that schools who implemented Michelle Obama’s “healthy” school lunch are plagued by rats. According to liberals on location, the public schools do not have the infrastructure needed to support a large amount of fresh foods. Nor can they handle the huge amount of waste generated by its rejection. Read more

Did the NFL Punish Ray Rice Justly?

The NFL’s treatment of Ray Rice shows it does not hold truth and justice up as standards for conduct. Instead, like the rest of America, it holds up fairness and knowledge. As a result, the vengeful rule of the mob is ruining football, just like Obama voters are ruining America.

Consider that Ray Rice already admitted to assaulting his fiancé. That’s the truth. He assaulted her. The prosecutors of that jurisdiction did not pursue charges. According to the law, justice was satisfied, and Mr. Rice walked a free man.

But the mob thought that was unfair. They rallied to demand the NFL punish Ray Rice somehow. They asked, “How is it that a running back who hits Mary Jane, a marijiuana cigarette, gets suspended for six games, but a running back who hits Mary Jane, a woman, gets nothing?”

So the NFL acquiesced to the mob. They handed Ray Rice a two game suspension. I ask, was that suspension just? Did Mr. Rice’s contract have provisions in it regarding domestic violence? Did the NFL have already standing policies in place regarding suspensions for domestic violence?

It was arbitrary and set a poor precedent. Remember that the authorities did not prosecute charges against Mr. Rice. However, the NFL wasn’t concerned with justice, it was concerned with quelling the mob.

But then TMZ got it’s hands on the elevator video of him actually hitting her. When the mob saw it, they rallied again. It’s not fair that Ray Rice play football at all!

And so the Ravens terminated Ray Rice’s contract. He lost his living, his income and the means to support the woman he hit, who ended up marrying him. The team is worse off, and the NFL has one fewer high-caliber running back on the field.

How is this additional punishment just? It also punished the victim of Ray Rice’s crime. Worst of all, women who may suffer domestic violence at the hands of NFL players are much less likely to report these crimes if they think it will ruin their livelihood.

What exactly did the TMZ video change? If the two game suspension was an adequate punishment before, what did the video reveal that required the NFL to indefinitely ban Ray Rice?

It didn’t change our concept of the truth. As far as I know neither Ray Rice or his woman denyed what happened. The problem is that the Obama voters who watch the NFL cannot conceptualize the truth.

Read this: “Ray Rice punched his girlfriend.” You conceptualized that information. Now go watch the video of him punching her. You don’t need to conceptualize it anymore. You know he punched her after seeing it so vividly. (JK. You don’t need to actually watch the video.)

The video heightened our knowledge of the event, changing it from conceptual to visceral. Since the mob acts by instinct not intellect, the video unleashed emotion.

Here’s something you guys need to understand. Truth compels justice. But fairness rests until knowledge stirs it up.

You’re asking, “What’s the difference?” Here it is. You can’t change the truth. Things are true weather you know it or not. But you can play around with knowledge by purposefully remaining ignorant or casting doubt unreasonably.

The video took away that wiggle room.

Before the video went viral, the Obama voters of Baltimore could plausibly remain Ray Rice fans. They might doubt the severity of the beating for example. But the video made the knowledge of the crime inescapable. Suddenly they all want to exchange their Rice Ravens jerseys.

To wrap this up, let’s turn to Barack Obama. That mob that demands the NFL be fair demands Obama rule fairly as its king. And so we see Obama play around with knowledge, purposefully remaining ignorant of truth, lest he be compelled to act. Consider his inaction after the Russians shot down the Malysians Airline jet, or when Musilims stormed Benghazi. He’s still getting to the bottom of those issues. The report from the blue ribbon panel is due soon. He will find out what happened! (Someday)

But unlike the NFL, he has no interest in quelling the mob. He stokes the mob.

When the Obama justice department stormed Furgeson, Missouri, they weren’t looking for the truth. The truth might condemn Michael Brown. They were stirring vengence against the cops to dole out some unprecedented, arbitrary punishments.

Does Scotland’s No Vote Fulfill Bible Prophesy?

Does yesterday’s No vote for Scottish independence fulfill Bible Prophesy? A lot of people are asking that. Don’t worry. Right now I am scouring the Book of Revelations looking for some clue that the Scotts would wuss out.

But first I got to say something about Bible prophesy in general. Most ameteurs think that the dangerous part of interpeting Bible prophesy is that you might be proven wrong.

No. We professionals cover that risk by ensconsing our interpetations behind weasely conditional words such as “if,” “might,” or “probably.” That way if we get specific and time goes by and what we predict does not come to pass, we can just point to those weasle words and say we’re not wrong. The conditions of our interpetation were wrong.

Even Bible prophesy itself has weasle words.

A lot of people wondered if John the Baptist fulfilled the prophesy that Elijah was going to come back. Jesus said to them, “For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John, and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come.” (Matthew 11:13)

See? If you are willing to accept it. So if we accept it, John the Baptist was Elijah. But if we don’t, then what, Jesus? It doesn’t say.

In fact, the exact time of the Second Coming is left up in the air according to Jesus. He said, “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” (Matthew 24:36)

And then Jesus adds a condition to trigger the Second Coming that seems to depend on us! “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)

Now get ready. Because what I’m about to write will boggle your mind. I’m like theology’s Dr. Emmet Brown.

Bible prophesy can be cryptic at times, okay? Some might say it’s a tad apocalyptic. Perhaps there is some language in Scripture that could be taken to mean that Scotland would break away from the United Kingdom. But when I wrote this article earlier this week explicitly dealing with the subject, it somehow influenced Scotland’s voters and made that part of Scripture not be fulfilled by yesterday’s vote.

But if I hadn’t written that article, perhaps the vote would have been YES. So many people read the article, it could have influenced those historic events.

How could this be? Well, maybe some of Scotland’s Richard Dawkins types could not stand the thought the Bible be proven true so they commited voter fraud. They each voted NO to independence multiple times.

These are all just hypotheticals! Notice I’m adding an extra dose of weasle words! I don’t wan’t to be taken as a blasphemer of Scripture, so I’m not saying anything definitively.

Hey. If it’s God’s will that Scotland break away, it will happen.

It’s easy to imagine how. Maybe now the British will go back on the promises they made to Scotland. I mean, have they ever done that before? If the Brits betray Scotland, they’ll make all the gingers in Scotland mad. Gingers have anger problems.

That’s a biblical truth. Look at Jacob and Essau.

What does Scotland have to do with Armegeddon?

Back to the question we began with. Does yesterday’s No vote to Scottish independence fulfill Bible prophesy?

I think the answer might definetly be yes.

The story of human history is man’s desire to eat the fruit of his labor. That’s a theme of Holy Scripture for both the Old and New testiment. From page one to page 948 (the last page) the Bible holds up hard work as given by God and rewarded by him.

But today’s anti-Christian liberals hate hard work. All around the world, liberal governements promise people the opportunity to eat the fruit of someone else’s labor. Ironically, in the United Kingdom it’s the Labour party.

The NO vote in Scotland shows that globally, liberalism has reached a critical mass. To be Scottish, by definition, means to be so stingy that you barely eat your own fruit of your own labor for guilt of wasting food by eating it. So you would think that given the chance, the Scotts would avail themselves the opportunity to stop paying for London’s medical bills.

But they didn’t. There were enough people in Scotland who saw benefit from someone else paying for their bills, they voted to keep the gravy train running. It’s sad to see, but even America fell to that delusion. We reelected Barack Obama based on the promise of free birth control for all. We traded our freedom for a poison pill.

Liberalism is a delusion. (Or socialism, or whatever you want to call it. It’s governement replacing the Providence of God.) It cannot work. As UK Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other peoples’ money.”

Concerning the endtimes and delusions Paul the Apostle prophesied:

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

(2 Thessalonians 2:9–12 ESV) (emphasis mine)

So is the liberalism that Scotland fell to the strong delusion prophesied by the Bible? I say it’s possible that yes might answer that question correctly.

But anyways Bible prophesy is a confusing and complex topic. And so is politics on the British Isles. As you can see not being able to understand either did not stop me from commenting on the combination of the two. Thanks for reading!

Does Scottish Independence Fulfill Bible Prophesy?

Does the Scottish vote for independence fulfill Bible end-times prophecy? Some people think I may have jumped the shark asking this. Yea, I’m amazed at myself for asking this too.

Look, no one takes a more sardonic approach to eschatology than me. I love my Christian brothers, but sometimes they are too eager to believe that current events fulfill certain apocalyptic prophecies. I consider it my duty to make fun of those ideas… in love.

And so previously, when a Bible teacher would suggest that the European Union was the resurrection of the Roman Empire, I would scoff. “Pssh! The Roman Empire went as far north as Hadrian’s wall. Since Scotland is part of the EU, you’re wrong, sir. Wrong. WRONG!”

Then I would look for something to pound repeatedly as I yell “wrong!”

But today the Telegraph reported that the yes vote for Scottish independence is gaining ground. If Scotland votes to secede from the United Kingdom, and therefore the European Union, that would make Hadrian’s wall the EU’s northern boarder. Whoa!

Right now it occurred to me that the actual stone wall that makes Hardian’s wall may not lie coincidentally with the borders of modern day Scotland. I’m prepared for some Scottish or Roman history pedant to correct me.

But the remarkable point here is not the exact lines of the border. What’s remarkable is that the iron of the Roman Empire failed to conquer the fiery redheads of the third century highlands. And now the clay of the European Union may prove too brittle for the stingy highlanders of the 21st century to suffer.

Some people right now are like, “Huh, what do you mean clay of the European Union.”

What I’m talking about is Daniel’s prophetic interpretation of Nebucanezzar’s dream of the statue. In it he predicted a future empire with legs of iron and feet of clay that did not mix with the iron. He predicted Rome.

And what else could be brittle and weak as clay besides liberalism? The Roman Empire went soft with its bread and circus. The United Kingdom went soft with its Obamacare, or as they call it “NHS run amok.”

I don’t know if “run amok” is officially part of the title. But they never mention NHS without saying it’s run amok.

Look, the Scots have deep pockets. And short arms. They are fed up with paying for England’s chavs to have their genital warts removed. The scots say to themselves, “Oi! If the filthy Londoners would stop buying Burburry hats, they could pay to treat their own venereal diseases!”

And so they want independence. Who can blame them? The city of the Westminster catechism doesn’t want to pay to remove the genital warts of chavs!

Guys, I don’t even know if that’s the reason why Scotland wants independence. I’m just guessing. The thing is that the borders of the old Roman Empire coming back.

Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, if Scotland became independent, they would still try to join the EU.”

They might, but the EU wouldn’t let them. They don’t want to set a precedent. If Spain agreed to an independent Scotland, then all those little nations wanting to be like Andorra would try to secede. Denmark would lose Legoland!

Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, where does it say in the Bible that Scotland will break from the UK?”

It doesn’t. You guys aren’t understanding me. Listen.

In the book of Revelations it talks about Babylon. But the thing is that Babylon wasn’t around when the Book of Revelations was written. Babylon was used by early Christians as a code word for the Roman Empire.

But now the Roman Empire isn’t around anymore either. So how do some Christians explain the book of Revelations if neither Babylon nor the Roman Empire exists anymore?

They say the European Union is the Roman Empire revived.

Now that Scotland looks to break away, and the old boundaries of the Roman Empire reemerge, is that explanation believable? Not yet. Next the capital of the EU would need to move to Rome and North Africa would need to be conquered by the EU.

Oh, and Libyan warlords would need to weaponize elephants.

Why Doesn’t Obama have a Strategy for ISIS?

A lot of people were perplexed when Barack Obama said he didn’t have a strategy to deal with ISIS. I mean, he’s the president of the United States of America! It’s preposterous to think he couldn’t come up with something like a targeted air strike, or flash grenades, or a punitive school lunch program.

Guys, I can explain why he has no strategy. I can also explain why you are incredulous.

I wasn’t surprised when he said he didn’t have a strategy. In fact, I predicted this. He’s a liberal. The massive stumbling block to liberals is evil men.

But you were surprised for the same reason you were surprised Robin Williams offed himself. You bought into the perception of Barack Obama. Simply put, you thought he was a tough but ineffably cool character played by Will Smith.

So when ISIS committed atrocious crimes, you were ready for a rousing battle cry like Obama gave before he stormed the alien spacecraft that destroyed the White House in the movie Independence Day. Instead Barack Obama as played by Barack Obama spoke from the podium like a liberal who had been mugged. Not Will Smith.

To talk about a strategy, you need to first define the goal. If Obama’s goal was to destroy ISIS, he has myriad military options. He could send the Marines, Army, Air Force, or Navy Seals to engage the enemy. If cost was a concern, we could arm them with surplus raisins from the Department of Education.

This is the friggin’ United States Military! Make no mistake about it. They would pulverize ISIS. Soon the black flag of Islam would lay smoldering on the ground as the Star-Spangled Banner would proudly wave over the sands of Iraq.

And that’s the problem.

Obama’s goal is not to destroy an Islamic fighting force. When Old Glory rises above the flag of Islam in battle, that elevates a Christian country above an Islamic state. In the specious mind of simpletons such as Obama, that elevates Christianity above Islam.

History proves that Christianity is far superior to Islam. After the red flag of Islam rose above the fallen Constantinople, it all when downhill for the Prophet Mohammed’s followers. We Christians got revenge the best way. By living well.

So while Christians put sophisticated aircraft into flight, such as a Beoing 747, Muslim terrorists use primitive weapons such as box cutters to crash them out of the sky.

Islam fails. History documents Islam’s continued failure. The way of Jesus Christ succeeds beyond any expectation in any genetic pool it’s added. And to Barack Obama, that’s not fair!

Barack Obama doesn’t rule according to justice. He governs by holding up the standard of fairness. America demonstrates the Bible’s superior wisdom. That’s not fair to the Koran.

So he will not elevate America above Islam. He acts vengefully against America in order to humble it before Islam. That’s the essence of Islam. Submission.

Barack Obama’s goal with ISIS is to avoid war. So it’s no surprise that he has no strategy to achieve this goal. ISIS are brute animals. What form of diplomacy can you send to negotiate with rabid animals?

I predict it will come to light that the White House send emmisaries to negotiate terms of peace with ISIS, promising to appease them with money, land, oil rights, or formal statehood. But the outreach failed. ISIS’s goal is destruction and domination. There’s no room for compromise.

One last thing.

Obama is a liberal. So naturally he’s supposed to be against war categorically. That’s why the Nobel Committee awarded him the peace prize before his inauguration. And I explained before, he avoids war generally, which leads to more war.

Remember the ironic head bomp of God’s judgement. Obama has ironically started more wars after winning the world’s formost prize for peacemaking.

Obama’s White House overthrew Mormar Qudaffi in Lybia. And in Syria, he was prepared to act directly to overthrow Assad because of WMDs. So he’s certainly not categorically against war.

But what can we say about every military action he’s taken or not taken? In each instance it’s been to the benefit of hardcore Muslims.

Qudaffi was nominally Muslim but overall secular. Assad and Mubarack the same way. When the people of Iran rose against Macmood Amadenigab demanding moderation of Islamic rule, Obama did nothing.

I think the weapons ISIS wields were supplied by Obama. First in Lybia then in Syria.

It’s no surprise Obama says he has no strategy to deal with ISIS. The roof is falling in on him and the walls crumble around him. There’s not even time to sprint for a door.

Jesus said:

Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?

Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.

The Worship Music Wars Are Waning And Hymns Are Winning

The worship music wars are finally winding down now as Christians begin to admit that worship music sucks. Nobody likes worship music. Nobody ever liked worship music. Everyone just pretended to like contemporary worship music so they would fit in. They suffered through the jangly juvenile diddies hoping their sacrifice would lead young people to join the church.

News flash! The young people don’t exist. Birth control is what decimated the church. Not hymns.

So why did we waste the past twenty-five years arguing about music?

It’s so that we could passionately fight about something but avoid arguing about substance. The bible clearly teaches us to have kids. The bible clearly teaches predestination. The bible explicitly commands women to keep silent in church. The second coming occurs after the tribulation. There is no separate rapture.

When’s the last time you heard these subjects preached from the pulpit? Not since 1990. If ever. All of those things sound so awful and mean spirited. Preaching on them would just drive attendance down, right?

So in the 90’s the church began avoiding those weighty matters to chase a soaring spirit of musical worship. Out went all the hymns about blood and wrath and tribulation. In came the Christian Mickey Mouse club.

“Enter into the spirit!” the worship leader angrily yelled to the congregation, “It’s time for goosebumps and shivers in you spine.” Old people tried to sing along but got lost in lyrics projected on the overhead like this: YEAH YEAH YEAH x3.

People wanted to argue about music and dress. Young passionate leaders with real hearts took to the forefront. They staged demonstrations in committee meetings, ripping off their ties, condemning anyone who didn’t wear pajamas to church, and scoffed incredulously that the church wouldn’t spring just $26,852 on a new sound system.

By 2000 they started winning big time. Churches had that pivotal congregation meeting where the youth pastor insisted they could have hundreds of young people if they only voted to go contemporary worship. And everyone thought it would be suicide not to go contemporary.

So we’ve all been singing contemporary worship songs for like 14 years now. And what happened? Church attendance has dropped off steeper. There are fewer people now! We still don’t have the young people they promised. And the old people gave up fighting death because they hate worship music so much.

I hate worship music too.

Worship music reminds me of the delusional fantasy America descended into in the 90’s. As Rush Limbaugh pointed out, Bill Clinton campaigned and won on totally vain issues such as school uniforms. That’s the political equivalent of arguing about worship music.

That’s what we wanted the national political debate to be about. Vanity. For example, what if Bob Dole campaigned on destroying the Taliban? What if in 1996 Bob Dole warned us of Osama Bin Laden?

We would have said “Shut up Bob! Bill Clinton is jamming on the saxophone!”

Yet in just five years after that we were off to war in Afghanistan. 2001 was when a war that had been brewing for since the Cold War finally hit home. And when it hit us in an unavoidable way, we thought it came out of nowhere.

And so it is with the church. We have an unavoidable war with apostasy. We’re actually arguing about gay marriage in the church! That’s more than just a substantial matter. It is an essential matter! Yet it seems like it came upon us suddenly.

No. This apostasy gained ground while we chose to argue about worship music rather than learn about the mind of God through studying scripture.

The bible says to speak the truth. Okay. Worship music sucks. Nobody likes it. Everybody likes hymns but is afraid to admit it.

If we had stuck to preaching the word of God as written, we would have scared off all these wannabe worship leaders before they caused division among us.

Robin Williams was an Actor

Robin Williams was an actor. I’m not sure you guys know that based on your response to his suicide last week.

On Facebook lots of people posted a picture of the Genie hugging Aladdin. Aw, isn’t that a nice farewell? Except the Genie was a creation by Disney artisans. Robin Williams just lent his voice to the movie project. Robin Williams was an actor.

Some people updated their status with an “Oh Captain, my Captain,” quote from Dead Peots Scociety where he inspired a classroom by saying:

"To quote from Whitman, ‘That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.’

What will your verse be?"

Wow. Such an intellectual mind must have suffered deep torment to finailly kill itself, right? I mean, just read that quote! Doesn’t it give you goose bumps?

The problem is that this quote didn’t come from the mind of Robin Williams. It was crafted by screenwriter Tom Schulman. Robin Williams read those lines from the script in the movie because Robin Williams was an actor.

Speaking of toubled minds, how about the picture of Robin Williams and Matt Damon sitting on a bench in Boston’s Public Garden? No caption was needed for an image so poignant. If he could help that troubled math genius through the tribulations of his life, why couldn’t he help himself out of suicidal depression?

Guys, it’s because he was an actor. He wan’t really a professionally liscenced psychologist. You don’t think that Matt Damon was a math genius, do you?

Right now some people have had it and they’re like, “Jimmy, we know he was an actor! We loved him for the joy he brought us. Why do you have to bad-mouth the greatest comedic genius of our time?”

What? I’m not bad-mouthing John Candy! I’m talking about Robin Williams.

What I’m getting at is that our perception of reality is messed up.

Perception Deception

Man, who lives in a conceptual world, has always appreciated art inasmuch his leisure time afforded him. The problem is that our leisure time has taken over our whole lives. Thus, what was formerly an avocation called culture has morphed into an all-encompassing entertainment complex called pop culture.

Pop culture is so vivid and the sensory experience so realistic that we all think we actually knew Robin Willams.

Maybe Robin Williams lived his whole life in deep seated agony and depression. But when the director hollered “Action,” he sprung into character as a rambunctious whilrwind of jokes and impersonations.

We never saw him or knew him after the director said, “Cut, and that’s a wrap.” But there was this guy Robin Williams we all new and to us that man never wasn’t Robin Williams.

The number one suicide prevention factor is other people. But what happens when everwhere he went other people expected the Robin Williams to be Robin Williams? How can you be sad when everyone thinks you’re the Genie? How can you suffer emotionally when everyone thinks you’re the professor or psychologist, or a never-ending ball of pure joyful energy?

What happens when everybody loves you but nobody will give you work? What happens in the cruel business of show business when the young bucks running the studios now-a-days tell you how much they love you but the market’s just not there for another Robin Williams character? (They’re all kind of the same.)

If the whole world knows Robin Williams but doesn’t know Robin Williams where can Robin Williams go where he isn’t Robin Williams?

Perhaps in his mind it wasn’t suicide. Maybe he thought it’s time to lower the curtain on Robin Williams. The act’s over. He no longer had to play the role of Robin Williams.

The Powerful Play Must End

I believe the antidote for depression is reality, not a pill. I firmly believe all these pills they want us to pop shelter us from reality and therefore amplify suicidal tendencies.

The Robin Williams suicide tore a hole in the illusion our nation lives under. It showed a little piece of reality that we could not handle, so we popped some pills to escape the terrible emotions that this life under the sun deals us.

Russell Brand, in an essay, spoke for an entire generation of the disillusioned when he blamed the world for killing Robin Williams, the actor. He didn’t blame Robin Williams, the man.

Then he went on to denounce Fox News, who relay images of a reality he wants to avoid. And defiantly, he would celebrate Robin Williams, the actor, by watching Mrs. Doubtfire, a role that Robin Williams, the man, absolutely dreaded reviving.

The Tragic News Media

I heard a newscaster say Robin Williams suffered, a “tragic, unexpected death.” It wasn’t tragic. Neither fate nor chance dealt him death. He did. Death was exactly what he expected when he wrapped the belt around his neck.

Yet his death was unexpected. To them. The newscasters were incredulous that a comedian would be depressed and suicidal because they’re in the same business. The news media, together with Hollywood, and the advertisers of Madison Avenue are in the business of altering your perception of reality.

The Media sets out every day all day to alter your view of reality. Yet they ironically are so gullible as to believe the lies of their sister industries.

“How in the world could the Genie from Aladdin be depressed and suicidal?” They wonder.

I don’t know, news media. How could the foods that human beings been eating for all human history be killing us? Yet every day you’d have us believe that fat, salt, cholesterol, and now gluten are bad.

How could we call what gay men do to eachother in bed “love?” Yet that’s the perception you want America to have.

How is it that conservative Christians are the mean-spirited, hate-filled racists when it’s Islam beheading, murdering, and committing genocide all across the globe?

But you ignore that because the real reality ruins the illusion you’re hypnotyzing America to perceive.

What I’m pointing out is not inconsequential. Suicidal people choose to ultimately avoid reality rather than face it. Our whole nation is committing suicide rather than face reality.

When the United States of America elected Barack Obama they thought they were electing a movie character played by Will Smith. But the reality is that this despicable man is an enemy of the state and a traitor to our land. And we’d rather face the back side of curtains than face that fact.

Robin Williams Suicide And #Ferguson

What do Robin Williams and the Ferguson race riots have in common? Both suicides show that we are not tough enough to survive as a society and as a nation.

Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, Michael Brown did not commit suicide! He was shot execution style by a racist cop.”

Have you never heard of death by cop? It’s a form of passive suicide used most often by daredevil rednecks and black youths.

In fact, the belt-hanging suicide is most common among lonely, rich, middle-aged white men. Robin Williams fit the criteria for active suicide quite well.

Conversely, young black men are the demographic least likely to commit active suicide. Is it because they have so much to live for?

No. It’s because they’re too lazy to do all the work of killing themselves. They just have other gang bangers or cops do the job for them. You know, go out in a blaze of glory.

Section 8 Suicide

Hey black youths, do you have a death wish? Do this: get high, try to grab a cop’s gun, run away, turn around, taunt the cop, then charge the cop. BOOM! Section 8 suicide.

I’m sorry! Is this mean-spirited of me to say? Yes?! Well, your incredulity proves my point. You’re not tough enough to exist as a society. We absolutely must cast an appropriate level of scorn on those who have committed suicide. Especially the reckless variety of Michael Brown that endangered others.

If we fail to condemn suicide, others will follow suit. I believe it’s called the suicide contagion. But I can’t check because I have no data here.

If we continue to coddle blacks, they will continue down their self destructive path and bring the whole country with them.

17-year-olds such as Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown were not boys. They were men. If we hold them up as tragically victimized heroes, we risk a suicide-by-cop contagion.

Suicide-by-cop Contagion

Did someone else invent that term first? Check the internet for me. Suicide by cop contagion. I can’t check.

I’m in the middle of the West Texas oil field. Also, the above factoids about suicides among blacks and whites may not be true. I vaguely remember something like them in a Freakenomics Podcast. (Can one of you guys find out for me and put it in the comments?)

But speaking of discouraging copy cats, the American media at first hesitated to say suicide about Robin Williams. Instead they celebrated the life of the characters that Robin Williams played. (Robin Williams was an actor.)

Last week, I was waiting in line at a truck stop in Odessa (Love’s). Some cable news reporters on the tv lamented “Robin Williams tragic, sudden death.” Then they proceded to gleefully quote lines Robin Williams recited in movies he starred in. (Robin Williams was an actor.)

Members of the media who beatify an actor and gloss over his suicide in his hagiography erode the neccessary adversion to sucide we need as a society. They prove we’re not tough enough to reinforce that natural adversion to ending your own life.

Death is Painful

One practical method to reinforce that adversion is to make note of the pain of death. Yet when the coroner realeased graphic details of Robin Williams’s corpse, the media condemned the coroner. They did not condemn Robin Williams for killing Robin Williams.

Like I said we’re not tough enough to survive as a society.

Is America Tough Enough?

Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, you just want us to walk around like Juggalos singing songs about suicide? Is that tough enough for you?”

No. Please don’t.

You don’t know what tough means. Let me define toughness. It’s not being macho. Toughness is doing what you must even though you don’t want to.

Look at Ferguson, Missouri. Do you see something that must be done that no one wants to do?

Someone needs to rebuke all these African Americans. Someone needs to tell them they are wrong, they need to shut up, and that they are acting foolish.

Why do must we do this? To act like jerks? Because we feel superior? No! To improve their lives! For it is written, “Whoever rebukes a man will afterward find more favor than he who flatters with his tongue.”

Who’s Happy Michael Brown is Dead?

Someone said it was sad that a young man, Michael Brown, was killed. They said it like they made a poignant observation. And I’m thinking, oh really, it’s sad you say?! Is Darren Wilson hiding out in some smoke filled room laughing with delight because he killed a young man?

Of course it’s sad! That’s exactly why we need to get tough and tell blacks that if you live like a dog, you’ll die like a dog.

That’s why we must teach blacks the wisdom of the Holy Bible so they do not fall for the wicked schemes of Barack Obama and Eric Holder.

These despicable men are not tough. They are cowards who cloak their violence with deceit. They speak with much flattery in order to coral black Americans on towards the slaughter. I rebuke them in Jesus name. For it is written,
>Partiality in judging is not good.

Whoever says to the wicked, “You are in the right,” will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations,
but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.
Whoever gives an honest answer kisses the lips.

Pucker up, bro.
