Ever notice how so many road signs have bad grammar? I mean come on

`

Drive slowly

  Hello! It’s slowly

     Speed limit 

“Well Officer I thought that by speed limit you meant I had to go at LEAST 75. Your not really going to give me a ticket for going 90 are you?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pets on leash

So if the pets are on a leash why are you warning me about them. I would hope the owner would be able to control a leashed animal.

Now that was random.

Funny Church thing

I made this image and even though it sticks I thought I would share it with you because I think it correctly describes the common change in churches in American. Churches in
America have given up trying to change people. Instead they focus on receiving “change” from people so they can have the post people of any church on the block, the coolest buildings, a TV show, a high pastoral pay-check ect. I thought the play on words was kind of cute.

 

2008 election March 18, 2007

Filed under: Christianity,humor,Life,Politics,Ranting,Religion — isaacme @ 4:29 am

This 2008 election will be the first election in which I can vote. I’m very exited. I just wanted to post some facts about some of the Republican candidates and my opinion about them.  

 

The candidates  

 

 

Filed with the FEC 

John McCain 

AbortionAgainst 

Gay rightsFavors 

Marital statusLives with second wife 

Religious statusCatholic. He’s also called [semi] conservative Christians narrow minded  

Other remarksMcCain is a left-wing environmentalist. 

 

 

 

 

Rudy Giuliani 

AbortionFavors 

Gay rightsFavors 

Marital statusIs with his third wife. Has had numerous affairs.  

Religious statusCatholic.  

Other remarksOut of all the republican candidates Mr. Giuliani is my least favorite. I have no idea why this guy calls himself a Republican.  

 

 

 

Mitt Romney 

AbortionAgainst 

Gay rightsAgainst 

Marital status1st wife. No affairs that I’ve been able to find out about 

Religious statusMormon 

Other remarksHe’s Mormon, but at least he has values [unlike others] 

 

 

 

 

Sam Brownback 

AbortionAgainst 

Gay rightsAgainst 

Marital status1st wife 

Religious statusConservative evangelical  

Other remarksSam who? As much as I like this guy [and I really do], he really has no chance of winning. He’s a nobody.  

 

 

 

 

All other republicans [some good some bad] that have filed with the FEC are two obscure to get elected and thus are not going to be mentioned here. 

 

 

 

Not filed with the FEC 

 

 

 

Newt Gingrich [my dad’s favorite choice]  

 

AbortionAgainst [I believe]* 

Gay rightsAgainst [I believe]* 

Marital statusLives with his third wife. Has had at least one affair. His third wife is 20 years younger than him. He has [supposedly] repented to God of his divorce record.   

Religious statusChristian 

Other remarksGingrich verbally expresses his Christian beliefs, he also votes conservatively, but when it comes to his personal life, Gingrich is far from squeaky clean.  

 

 

 

Fred
Dalton Thompson
 

AbortionAgainst 

Gay rightsAgainst 

Marital status2nd wife 

Religious statusProtestant [I don’t know much about that though] 

Other remarksOne too keep an eye on. He’s an actor so he might have enough support to pull off a win. 

 

* = I’m not totally positive 

 

 

 

What about other parties? 

 

 

DemocratSo what if an ultra liberal Republican was chosen to run? Would I consider voting for a moderate Democrat instead? No. The president of the United Sates appoints lots of people like his cabinet, new Supreme Court judges, and others. If a Republican is elected he will likely appoint fellow Republicans who are more than likely more conservative than the average Democrat.  

 

 

Third partiesThird party candidates sound good, but don’t waste your vote. 3rd parties haven’t come close to winning in forever and it doesn’t look like they will anytime soon. Don’t waster your vote! Pick what you consider to be the lesser of the two evils.  

 

 

Conclusion/My choice 

 

  So who do I want the Republican’s to nominate? Mitt Romney. At least that’s my opinion right now. But what about the fact that he’s a Mormon? Yes he may be Mormon, but at least he has values, which can’t be said about the other two Republican front-runners. However, there’s lots of time before the nominations. Look for Fred
Dalton Thompson. He might be an interesting choice, but I haven’t been able to find a whole lot about him. If Mr. Brownback could get the support he’s for sure be my number one choice, but I fear he’s too conservative/unknown to get elected. Newt Gingrich has supposedly “repented of his ways,” but I’m not totally convinced. His record seams embracing for a Christian.  
 

    So there you have it. That’s some of the facts and some of my opinion on the Republican candidates so far. It doesn’t look all that pretty, especially with Giuliani and McCain in the lead. Just remember to pray about this. Yah it seams way early, but still pray. This is going to be a very important election.

 

Lamb video March 13, 2007

New video of baby lambs! Sorry that the video isn’t higher quality. If you wait until the end they do a really cute bucking motion.

 

LAMBS!!! March 7, 2007

Filed under: humor,Life,Random — isaacme @ 5:42 am

   This morning our sheep count went from 3 to 5. One of the sheep had two cute little babies. Here are some pics. I apologize that they aren’t great, but the sheep lambed way out in the field and so I didn’t want to disturb her by getting closer. I’ll try to get some better pictures up later. I also apologize that some of them are kind of gross.

 Baby Lambs

This first pic was taken literally moments after birth. As you can see, the mommy still has the cord attached.  It was amazing, we got to actually watch the second [the black one] one’s head pop out. Right after birth it went straight for the milk.

  Baby Lamb 

I don’t know the gender of either of them, all I know is their cute.

 Baby Lamb 

Only hours after birth and the lambs are jumping around, but they still keep close to mommy.

Baby Lamb  

Our other two sheep are set to give birth any day now, so before long we should have about 6-7 lambs.

 

The Joel Osteen bible February 16, 2007

Filed under: Christianity,humor,Random,Ranting,Religion — isaacme @ 6:00 am

  In modern Christendom, we’ve manipulated the word of God into something we want to hear. Having altered scripture to fit our every whim and fancy, we say that man is basically good, that he is capable of saving himself, and that he is allowed to do whatever he pleases. To demonstrate this type of alteration, I’ve taken a couple of favorite bible passages and changed them to fit modern theology. These renditions are, in a way, amusing, but I pray you’ll see the danger of trying to make Gods word say what we want to hear. No matter what we want to believe, the truth of Gods word stands true. There is only one way to be saved, and that is through believing in Jesus Christ.  

  I call my translation the TME [tickle my ears] version. Click on the reference to view the real version.

 

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he sent his one and only Son, that whoever prays a little prayer shall never have bad things happen to them, but have eternal happy time both now and in the life to come.

Romans 3:23 for all have done not so good things and come just shy of the glory of God,

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is now allowed to do whatever he wants; the old consequences for sin have passed away; behold, all things become open to you .

1 John 2:6 the one who says he abides in Him [Christ] can optionally walk in the same manner as He [Christ] walked.

 

  Now nobody is going to make a translation of the bible quit like this. However, preachers “preach” from this “bible” every Sunday. They ignore what the inspired word of God has to say, and shape their sermons to tickle people’s ears. That’s quit frankly sad. Our world needs to hear the truth about how to be saved, not a bunch of non-offensive lies. The bible is an inspirational guidebook for life, but this guidebook doesn’t always tell you what you want to hear.

 

Hebrews 4:12 [NASB]
For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

 

You don’t think people will want to hear what the bible has to say? Tough. They can get over it. It’s your job to give people scripture, not to change scripture. Think about it, the God of this whole universe wrote the bible. Don’t you think it’s perfect the way He wrote it?
