The Real Deal

Now that I have, according to Hugh Hewitt, come out of my year of retirement, I am discovering just how much the world of bloggers has exploded with talent, both good and bad. I read often this past year from Hugh's site and lgf but very few others. One of the best that I have begun reading is Michael Yon, a military blogger. All I can say is... wow. I am humbled and proud to know that there is someone like him as well as others such as Major K, Thunder 6, the Chaplain at Training for Eternity and many, many others that champion the truth that is happening in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas in a dark, dangerous world. Because of the folks like these typical yet focused and courageous people, we get the truth and news that just a few short years ago was impossible, not only technically but ideologically so. The leftist agenda of the MSM would never have allowed the point of view we now get to be available to the American public. Instead of doom and gloom we now get the truth, tough and difficult at times, but nontheless a true picture of what is going on among the people that put their lives on the line so that I can continue write my silly little blog and live my life in peace. I can write and rant and rave about the left but these men and women write about life and death. I thank God for them and they make me proud. They are the finest that America has to offer. They are the real deal.

Go read this long post on Michael's site. It's long but well worth the read.

Question 2: Job and the Gulf Coast
by Hugh Hewitt

What portions of Scripture are most relevant to the people who have lost family, friends, and financial security to Katrina and now Rita, and why?

What portions of Scripture are most relevant to those who have been watching, but for whom the suffering is far removed, and why?

Hugh Hewitt has recently created a fascinating blog and discussion board to discuss questions of church and faith relative to today's Christians, OneTrueGodBlog. The questions listed above are indicative of the questions he poses. While I have just begun to peruse and sift through the many posts and links, I am amazed at the complicated nature of the thoughts and statements of people that try to show their spiritual wisdom and knowledge. All without referring to the scriptures that must be the anchor and source of any so-called wisdom of man. I appreciate Hugh's efforts in view of the assault on faith by nearly anything secular, but I must state that without the light of the Word of God, man's effort to dissect and understand faith is meaningless. Only the changing power of the grace and mercy of a loving and just God can bring illuminating redemption of fallen man. Why do we not take God at His word? Why do we insist on lifting up our own wisdom and knowledge and supplant the message that spurs men to repentance and rebirth? Will we ever learn to be obedient and set aside our pride? I look forward to reading more in OneTrueGodBlog but if we rely on man's opinions and faulty wisdom we will continue to be puffed up in our self-righteousness and remain splintered and divided in a world that so desperately needs the changing power of the Spirit of God.

My guess is that Hugh does not want to debate scriptures on his blog and I can understand why. But words about faith based on man's wisdom is pointless and is like dust in the wind.

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6

"But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do the things which I say?" Luke 6:46

"If you love me, you will obey what I command." John 14:15

"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'" Matthew 7:21-23

As for Hugh's Question 2:

The congregation of the Lord's church that I attend and am an elder of is assisting people directly affected by hurricane Katrina in Pascagoula, Mississippi. A group of people from the Summit church of Christ in little Cold Spring, Kentucky have been motivated by compassion for others to give time and resources to others that have been devastated. We are sending a team of people and supplies for the third time next week by taking building supplies and coordinating with people there to bring much needed labor in rebuilding homes. We also will be distributing Bibles when we hand out water, food and cleaning supplies. FEMA? Who cares. Red Cross? Who cares. Good organizations but too much money is wasted and Christians should not depend on secular organizations to do good.

"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:13-16

No Media Bias? Whatever...

You need to read this great post and expose' on Zombietime about the typical day to day way that MSM distorts the truth to fit their failed leftist agenda. No media bias? Give me a break...

Full Circle

We come, at last, full circle to the very reason this blog was created: Dan Blather and Mary Mapes pitiful attempt to force-feed their liberal biased agenda through the faked and forged Air National Guard documents on a supposedly unsuspecting public. Little did they realize that they would be held accountable to their miscreant behavior by we lil' ol' bloggers, the lizardoid pajama mujhadeen.

See Mary Mapes sad description of her version of events when she encountered citizen-based reporting via the bloggers after her ill-fated Blathergate document story on 60 Minutes. She just doesn't get it.

Then go read Blather's smug, self-serving platitudes in an interview with Marvin Kalb at George Washington University. An hysterical comment by Blather shows his deep-rooted ignorance of the new media. He considers himself to be "cutting edge". BAWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! He just doesn't get it.

It amazes me to this day how they refuse to acknowledge that fact and somehow blame the whole uproar over their actions as a sinister right-wing conspiracy. Go read and listen to some of the excerpts of Blather's interview with Kalb at Radioblogger. Prepare to either laugh yourself silly or puke in disgust.

When ordinary citizens take it upon themselves to verify facts and have the tools needed to provide and dissemenate those facts to the rest of society, democracy is served in a way that would make the founders of our great republic proud. Main stream media and the elite left may scream, shout and cry while denegrating bloggers, but it only shows that the dinosaur that is MSM is facing extinction and losing the control they thought they had over the citizens of the greatest country the world has ever seen. The Blathergate fiasco would never have been exposed to the light of truth if not for new media like Hugh Hewitt, Charles Johnson of LGF, Powerline and others like them.
