Ephesians 6:1-24 [NASB]

Family Relationships

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

2 HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise),

3 SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.

[**Added - TM did NOT DO honor to his parents - You SEE where he IS...
Proverbs 30:11
1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
11 There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.]

4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

5 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ;

6 not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.

7 With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men,

8 knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free.

9 And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

14 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,

15 and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE;

16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,

19 and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel,

20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

21 But that you also may know about my circumstances, how I am doing, Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, will make everything known to you.

22 I have sent him to you for this very purpose, so that you may know about us, and that he may comfort your hearts.

23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

24 Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ with incorruptible love.

Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris purged the voting rolls Illegally.
Yes, but again, no need for purges of voting rolls if Nader doesn't run. Supreme court, Jeb Bush, all moot but for Nader. Not only did Gore get more votes in Florida, the whole thing was so close before the recount that it had to go to the Supreme Court. Recount showed Gore WAS the elected president but it was too late, the Court had ruled. I repeat, here's the problem. No Jeb Bush interference, no Supreme court ruling if Nader opts out. He got 3 million votes in Florida alone. Don't tell me those voters would've given their ballot to GWB had Nader not run. C'mon. Conclusion : Modest and vain Nader is not a presidential candidate, Gore is president. I wonder if Nader can sleep since that horrible catastrophe. We can only dream what a Gore presidency would've been compared to what the USA got from GWB. Sleep tight, Ralph.

Okay, one by one, here goes :

1. Obey parents like Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot who were all fathers? Obey parents who are drunks and abuse their children physically and sexually?(Is there something missing in that commandment?);

2. Honour? Even the drunks and abusers and thieves?(Is there something missing again?)è

3. Who is TM? And you know where he is? Who told you, God?;

Did the children who were enslaved and beaten and starved by their parents have to , should they have not cursed their father and certainly not blessed their mother. You assume, or this false prophet assumes that all parents are good and wholesome! What an idiot;

4. This is what ALL fathers do? Do as the Lord did, smite whole Canaan cities?

5. Here it is again - the Bible not only does not criticize slavery, it encourages it. Confederates had a field day with that one. Bravo;

6. More approval of slavery.

7. More encouragement of slavery. How Jim Crowe must have liked that passage;

8. More acceptance of slavery. Took an atheist, Lincoln, to change all that;

The rest is garbage, totally not in tune with even the 12th century, even less today. Wake up, communist lady, your Das Kapital, as bad and boring as it is, is better than what you just deployed.

The 10 best attractions at the Athens, Georgia tea party ‘community carnival’

The Athens-Clarke County Tea Party Patriots of Athens, Georgia have a problem. At the group’s first annual “Liberty Convention” in June, the convention’s many sponsors declined to pay the amounts they agreed to pay for banners and program mentions. On top of that, the expected crowd of 2,500 true sons and daughters of liberty never materialized. Instead, a mere 95 patriots turned up for the festivities.

As a result, the group is deep in debt and owes more than $65,000 to its roster of speakers, including 2012 Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and Sandy Hook “truther” journalist Ben Swann. Athens Tea Party Patriots chairman Keyantwon Stephens has said that the group will make good on its obligations, but was unable to say what kind of fundraising efforts they will undertake save a passing mention of a “community carnival.”

Being big fans of ferris wheels, bumper cars and food on a stick, we at the Raw Story Schadenfreude Desk would like to share some of our ideas for attractions at the tea party community carnival.

1. Some 2-D cut-outs of Mickey Mouse holding sheets of clean, blank paper and saying,“You must be THIS WHITE to vote in this district, kids!”

2. The Bell Curve roller coaster, in which conservatives can go up and down and round and round pretending that their racism is based on science.

3. The Cognitive Dissonance House of Mirrors, in which people on Medicare-funded mobility scooters can watch themselves waving signs protesting government health care.

4. Whac-Em-All, a game very much like Whac-a-Mole, except instead of mammalian lawn and garden pests, participants beat down minority college graduates and scream about affirmative action.

5. EBT Ball, a game in which conservatives compete for prizes by throwing tennis balls at poor people and trying to knock the food out of their mouths.

6. The Freak Tent, where some of conservatives’ worst, most fevered nightmare figures lurk, including The Cadillac Driving Welfare Queen, the War on Christmas Atheist Shock Troops, the New Black Panthers (both of them!), the African-American Turnout Machine and the birth-control-pill-popping, abortion-happy Sexually Liberated Woman and her on-again/off-again girlfriend, Angry Feminazi, who spends her days burning her bra and biting the heads off roosters, JUST BECAUSE THEY’RE MALE.

7. The Free Market Social Safety Net, a ride on which conservatives are lifted up to 150 feet in the air and then dropped. At the top, carnival personnel distribute parachutes to those who can afford them ($800 for a regular chute,$1,100 for one with an emergency back up in case the first one doesn’t open) and then kick everyone, parachutes or not, off the tower to see who hits the ground first.

8. The Downward Slide, a fast-moving ride dedicated to what the country would be like if tea partiers got their way and shrunk the government small enough to be drowned in a bathtub. Features include Big City Cholera Funtime, 20 Collapsing Bridges over the Mississippi, Guess When that Hurricane is Coming Ashore Now That NOAA’s Gone and the new unregulated agriculture ride, Toxic Treats and Tapeworms for Everybody!

9. Second Amendment Ram-It Days, a version of the carnival staple bumper-cars, but with a twist! One in every ten cars is primed to fire its guns erratically when it encounters a darker-colored car, and half of the participants have been instructed to keep their concealed weapons handy and shoot at anyone who annoys them or gets in their way. You get to guess who they are!

But of course, if the carnival fails to live up to expectations and doesn’t fill that gaping $65,000 hole, the Athens-Clarke County Tea Party Patriots could always fall back on that favorite fundraising prank of college Republicans:

(continued)

10. The Affirmative Action Bake Sale, in which conservatives manage to bring a racist agenda to something as universally loved and admired as cupcakes and other fresh baked goods.

Good luck, teabaggers! Hope y’all can find your way back to personal and fiscal responsibility before you get sued!

Your interpretation of these figures wouldn't pass muster and would get you an "F" minus in elementary school social studies. Those cities have tough gun controls, yes, but only as far as their city limits. Any one in the suburbs or outside can show a driver's licence and buy as many guns as they want and bring them to Chicago, Detroit, Washington and New Orleans either to use or to sell. Oh, why not mention New York also with the tough gun laws now with a much lower crime rate per capita than other cities? Why does it work there? Maybe because the state has enacted tough gun laws? As long as nationwide gun laws are not enacted, the carnage will continue.
Do you think law abiding citizens from suburbs and rural areas around Detroit,Chicago, and Washington DC are going into government housing area and shooting people for target practice? Our country doesn't need more gun laws,they need to enforce the gun laws that we have. Shooting people with guns is already illegal. Felons possessing guns is already illegal. Robbing and burglary is already illegal. Using guns in drug deals is already illegal. Shooting guns in schools is already illegal. If you make it a crime for anyone to possess a gun,only criminals will have guns,then everyone will be a target for the criminals. Instead of pushing legislation against law abiding citizens,how about pushing legislation against crime and criminals.

Faith and Honoring a greater Father! Helps!
**God is the Father of ALL Creation ...

Trayvon WAS NOT 'raised' by his parents in a 'loving' nurturing HOME! He was partially raised by a step parent in his fathers home, until approximately the age of 14. THERE IS the problem! It "is/WAS" multi generational dishonoring of parenthood. Parents of Trayvon DID NOT *honor* their parents, therefore the dishonoring began. WHO knows "where" it actually STARTED!?!

Start EARLY in a Godly life [right vs wrong] and it lingers on through *generations*!!!

As can be SEEN in Mr. George Zimmerman's CASE!
He was a choirboy from age 7 to 17 ...
I do NOT believe his parents were abusive,[do you?] therefore he *honored* his parents and God!

**********

Covering up continually for abusive parents is NOT honoring your parents.

When parents are continually abusive to their children, they HAVE already 'dishonored' themselves. There is no point in a child 'honoring' a parent that is already dishonored by their own actions.

Enabling parents to be abusive is not honoring to them as parents, NOR is it honoring to God.

Is God Really Telling Us To Honor Abusive Parents?

But one thing honoring does NOT mean is that you have no choice but to tolerate their abuse. Honoring does not mean that you never confront, or set limits on someone's behavior. Honoring does not mean you have to give up all hope of ever being treated nicely, and sacrifice your own health and well-being for an abuser's sadistic enjoyment.

WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE THE BIBLE IS TELLING US TO HONOR ABUSERS?

First of all, the words “father” and “mother”, as referred to when the Lord commands us to honor, mean[define] people who took care of us, nurtured us, protected us, loved us, and still love us.

Unfortunately, not all of us have had such people in our lives.

They do NOT mean “sperm donor” and “egg donor”. It takes far more than that to qualify as a “father” or a “mother” by Biblical standards. The Bible gives us many examples of the kinds of parents God is referring to when he uses the words “father” or “mother”.


God is not telling us to honor abusers, who don’t deserve to be honored.

In the 1930's parts of 95% of the population supported Hitler. In many instances, I am proud not to be a part of the 95% that just wants to fit in with the rest regardless of what they have to give up or surrender.
