Cell Phone Power

Here is a demonstration of the power that is emitted by that little device that so many of us hold less than an inch from our brains.

Perhaps the speaker phone option is a good idea!

Too Much Ozone?

Remember when the Federal government took away our efficient Freon and forced us to spend loads of money saving the Ozone because we were supposedly destroying the Ozone levels in the planet’s atmosphere?

Well, now the Federal government wants to restrict us even further with the claim that we are producing too much Ozone!

Today’s Wichita Eagle reports in Local leaders see a $10 million choice: Cut smog or lose that now the Federal government is blaming our gasoline usage for producing too much Ozone!

Yes, they claimed long ago that the Ozone produced at lower levels does not reach the upper levels where the Ozone is being destroyed. But they also claim today that Carbon Dioxide is causing global warming to such degrees that the world is going to be destroyed.

Each of these claims then seeks to institute new laws that take away additional freedoms from the citizens of free countries. Each of these claims ignores China and other countries that are polluting at unrestricted and phenomenal levels never before observed in the world. Each of these claims directs the citizens of free countries to become more dependent upon electricity, which further restricts their independence and freedom of movement and travel and productivity.

How are we to believe that the little releases of Freon from our air conditioners and aerosol spray cans were destroying the Ozone in the atmosphere and yet remarkably our little lawn mowers are producing so much Ozone that we are destroying our atmosphere and that same Ozone remarkably does not replenish that which supposedly is depleted in the upper levels?

Well, isn’t it obvious? Manmade Carbon Dioxide can rise to the upper atmosphere and destroy the world but Manmade Ozone cannot rise to the levels where it protects the world.

When will Americans wake up and rise up to take back our government from those who are destroying our nation and taking our freedoms from us? All it takes is to vote for someone who actually believes in the US Constitution and genuine science rather than science fiction. Is it really such a hard concept to grasp?

Father’s Day

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

(Ephesians 6:1-4)

After St. Paul explains that God designed the husband and wife relationship to be a pattern of the relationship of Christ and the Church, then he further explains how this extends to each and every person as children who have been blessed by God to be ruled over by parents.

Obey your parents in the Lord.

Each and every person after the first couple have been brought into existence by God through parents. Parents are God’s gift of life to the world through whom we each receive the life that God gives and through whom we each receive the nurture and care by which we grow to be come adults who live under God’s blessing in this world. Thus we are commanded to obey our parents in the Lord.

This means that in every way that our parents do not counter what God has ordained as right and good, we are to obey. With this commandment the promise is given that obedience to our parents keeps us from wandering from their protection and guidance so that we live lives that are full of goodness and longevity.

The word that is used for honor also means to prize or treasure. We are to count our parents as a treasure from heaven, a blessing from God Most High. This is especially true of our fathers, through whom God keeps the family as one.

The fathers stand as God’s foremost representatives on earth. As a husband draws near to his wife in love, God unites them and blesses them with children. These children are entrusted to their oversight, to nurture and care for them. Most importantly of all, the fathers are entrusted with the teaching of the children in the Lord. The fathers are given the authority of God, to rule over the family in love.

Often Christian fathers seek to learn how to be good fathers. Often they torture themselves in search of the meaning of true fatherhood. But St. Paul declares that true fatherhood is very easy to understand. To know and understand how to be a true father is as simple as looking to Our Father which art in heaven. If earthly fathers examine themselves so as to be certain of their place in God’s Holy Communion, then they also know the love of God in their lives so as to bestow God’s love to their wives and children.

It really is that easy. Love truly is the answer. This is not the fairy tale love that elevates emotional attachment as that which conquers all. This the love that originates with God and is made complete in His Holy Communion. After all, what greater gift can any father give than the gift of the certainty of everlasting life in God’s Holy Communion of everlasting peace and joy? Since God is the source of every good and perfect gift, a true father will direct his wife and children always to the fear and love of God. Then, all things shall be theirs. What else that a father can do can even come close to this?

Truly, all good things that a father will desire to do for his family will be found in God’s love and flow from His love.
