The Obamessiah Redefines Sin.

http://holycoast.blogspot.com/

Rick Moore's Holy Coast blog contains this snippet of an interview Barack Hussein Obama gave in 2004:

GG:Do you believe in sin?

OBAMA:Yes.

GG:What is sin?

OBAMA:Being out of alignment with my values.

GG:What happens if you have sin in your life?

OBAMA:I think it’s the same thing as the question about heaven. In the same way that if I’m true to myself and my faith that that is its own reward, when I’m not true to it, it’s its own punishment.

If you go to Rick's blog and click on the original interview, you *even* get to read about how Obama doesn't really have time to read his Bible, so he just listens to that "inner voice" telling him what to do. Um, based on his actions to preserve the "right" to the wholesale slaughter of unborn children in our country (including many BLACK children, Rev. Wright!), I would tend to think that "inner voice" ain't the Holy Spirit.

The Bible tells me to "judge not," so I suppose I can't tell you where this fellow is headed. But it also tells me that I can know a tree by its fruit. This fruit is not tasty. I do not want this man leading our country and am concerned. I know that God is in control and He could powerfully convict this man after his election and unpleasantly surprise the people who voted for him. That would be great!! It would make better TV than what's on now. Imagine wholesale revival in Congress and the House, too, while liberals in their Birkenstocks hop about fuming in San Francisco at the new "repressive and theocratic" laws they pass. Ahh...

Meanwhile, I will have to seriously consider what to do about the election this November. Do we sully ourselves and vote for McCain? Or stay home knowing what might happen if we don't make it to the polls to prevent the greater of two evils from asending to the presidency?

Hm.

  1. Oh, I hear you. I don't like nor trust that man, but what is the alternative? Have you seen our PM? Dear me. I guess the problem with politics is that it really does not attract the 'right' sort of person. I think you or I would make great pollies, but then, we never would, because it would 'cost' us too much. After all, we have morals, and values-things that most pollies sell out as soon as they hit the campaign trail. Again, what is the answer? God is great, but sadly, he is not really the leader of the free world these days!

  2. My guess is that Barack's inner voice sounds like Oprah.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
