Talon’s Point of the Day – Nov 23rd, 2015 Dying For More Social Media

None of us will be laying in our death bed, and as we breath our last breaths, lament how we should have spent more time on social media. May we all spend more time with our Savior this morning.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 24th, 2015 Find Out What It’s Like To Be Rich

Today I was “followed” on Twitter by someone who’s profile reads “Find out what its like to be rich!” I don’t need to follow this person back. My Father owns ALL the silver and gold, period!

      ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.” – Haggai 2:8

So if you want to find out whats its like to be rich, may I suggest the following verses to begin true understanding: John 3:16-18, Mark 16:16, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8-9

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 20th, 2014

Talon’s point today is based on a series of related tweets from earlier today as follows:

” I’ve said it before and will again. Obama is NOT the problem…he’s the symptom.”

“The ignorance of soft tyranny has lead to the awareness of hard tyranny.  The GOP has helped make this happen.”

…. and to someone who thinks the solution is to simply vote GOP as if GOP wins have advanced liberty rather than the reality it has also attacked it….

“Sometimes you are better off with the tyrant you recognize rather than the one you don’t recognize.”

For several years now I’ve said that Obama may turn out to be the best thing that has happened to America both spiritually and politically in several generations. How can I such an astounding thing? Because before Obama, our once great nation was not only sliding into the spiritual and social abyss, we were doing so in our sleep. The rise of this developing tyrant has awakened the portion of America that is capable of consciousness. The other portion is of course suffering from a government sugar induced coma and won’t awake until they are dying from their coming real physical hunger.

Obama’s acts have driven the Godly, and many of the once Godly, to their Bibles and their knees. It has been the fulcrum that has wedged them out of their actual, and metaphorical, recliners and motivated them to reestablish or strengthen the faith they will need to stand through the coming storm. It has even awakened some who never gave God much thought but deep inside they knew spiritually there is no hope outside of the the Creator they previously disregarded. This storm will almost assuredly include open persecution of Christians, and to a lessor extent non conformist non-Christians who reject all intrusive government,  not just anecdotal cases of persecution but full scale legalized persecution both sanctioned by, and engaged in by all levels of government. I pray this is not true. But every sign tells me otherwise. Let me quickly say here that I am not opposed to government. Our founders were right that it is a necessary evil that is best limited but nevertheless needed. Yet it is most capable of acting honorably when it acts minimally.

Secondarily, as I have already eluded to, it has awakened non-Christians at a political level. People from all walks of life, even some “liberals” who now justifiably fear they will soon lose all remaining social liberties in exchange for a system that takes virtually all they have and returns to them over priced and poorly provided “services.” Services that do not compete with what the free market is capable of. They recall images of empty Soviet market shelves and instinctively know we are walking the same path that led to mass economic deprivation.

Neither of these two awakenings, in my opinion, would have occurred under under John McCain because it was not occurring under George W. Bush. I’m not attacking these men. I am however confidently contending that their big government views intentionally, or unintentionally, have, or would have in the case of McCain, allowed the exponential growth of a government that displaces God with itself. I further contend that had Romney been elected, we likely as a people would have returned to believing this threat was generally over. As such we would have gone back to sleep as the assault on our spiritual heritage and personal liberty would continue unabated, just slower. Not because of Romney per se, but because the structure that allows the assault would only have been tweaked, rather than reformed.
