These numbers represent our nine years in Iraq.
4,487 American troops killed, 800 billion dollars spent, 32,000 wounded, 1 million men and women served there.

The biggest question of all: WAS IT WORTH THE COST since they started killing each other the next day after our troops left and more deaths since. Thousands of years of cold blooded murder between sects of Islam will continue to take the lives of innocent victims of the crazies there.

Did we pull out too soon or far too late? This question will haunt us for years to come.

Thank you to all soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who gave all for this country and Iraq as well.

I had an appointment at the VA yesterday and I have made it my practice to always talk to those men wearing the WWII hats and yesterday was no exception. I talked to a Mexican-American gentleman and his daughter and they shared with me his experience in the Philippines. He fought in the war there and was part of the Bataan Death March and spent two and a half years in a Japanese POW camp. I walked away amazed at the privilege of meeting an actual hero who survived this brutal treatment.
Another instance of meeting another Mexican-American Marine about a year ago who fought in the island battles in the Pacific and he showed me some of the scars on his body from wounds he received in those battles.
I was in an overnight stay in the hospital a few years ago and I had an older man as my roommate. The next morning I struck up a conversation with him and was surprised to find him to also be a WWII soldier. He flew as the waist gunner on a B-17 and completed many missions over Germany. He shared that on his last mission their airplane was shot down and the crew was taken to a POW camp in Germany for the remaining two years of the war.
Can you imagine the brutal treatment these men went through at the hands of their horrid captors? No one except those who actually were there can imagine the treatment they received. It is a miracle that they are still alive. I was watching a video yesterday on WWII and at the end it said that only 10% of people living during the war are still alive. They are dying at an alarming rate and it behooves each of us to do what I do and actually engage them in conversation and hear their stories. They truly were the Greatest Generation as they kept America and the world from being dominated by madmen.
70 years ago today, December 7, 1941, a date that will live in infamy!

God bless America and God bless these soldiers, airmen, seamen and Marines who fought during this war!

No matter how much we want to change the facts, the facts remain in place just the same. Just a few examples:
Gravity
That marriage is between a man and a woman
That God created everything, not evolution
That it is a baby in the womb, not reproductive tissue
AND the biggest one of all …

That God will judge all sinners and once death comes, there is no chance to change their minds about Jesus Christ

The Bible has never been disproven or shown to be in error. Some will say, but didn’t the Bible teach that the earth is flat? No, is the simple answer. Try to find it if you can. Atheists have tried to slander the Bible with a plethora of lies, but in the end, God and His word will stand forever.

There is a heaven and there is a hell, and God has offered a free ticket out of hell to EVERYONE on the planet and this for many centuries. For the last 2,000 years, man has known the Christmas story, that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son … well you know the rest, don’t you?

You see, GOD DOES NOT SEND ANYONE TO HELL! They go there by their own free will, in other words, they choose to go there and reject the offer of a way out. I get a bit perturbed when I watch the so-called Jesus Seminar on PBS. These FALSE scholars try to destroy all truth in this long, grueling attack on Christianity. Have you ever seen these same people do a show on Islam, or Hinduism etc.? You never will, since these religions are man made, where Jews and Christians worship the one and only true God. You may react by saying, that is very narrow and bigoted isn’t it? My simple answer is NO! You see, God will sit on His throne at the end of earth’s history and He alone will sit as the Ultimate Judge. You see, all Christians are already in His kingdom, while all who have thumbed their noses at Jesus Christ will stand before what the Bible calls The Great White Throne Judgment. Only unbelievers will be there and there is NO WAY OUT at this point. All will be cast into the lake of fire for eternity. Not my words but God’s, you see!

You may react by saying, that is so unfair and what right does He have to do this?

I can answer both very simply. 1. It is not unfair since all who are judged CHOSE their eternal dwelling place by rejecting God’s offer of a ticket out. 2. God does have the right since He alone created all man and since all souls are His, He has the ultimate right to do with what is His as He sees fit. He will take no pleasure in their judgment, as a matter of fact I believe He will have a broken heart over their choice.

God gives mankind free will to determine their lifestyle choices and how they will live their lives. He only steps in after they die and then, by their own choice, He then places them in the appropriate place of THEIR choosing.

“Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul that sins will die.” Ezekiel 18:4

“For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies,” says the Lord GOD. “Therefore, repent and live.”
Ezekiel 18:32

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So, choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
Deuteronomy 30:19-20

You see, the verse that says, “God is love,” means just that. He loved His creation so much He was willing to let His only Son, Jesus/Yeshua, die on the cross to set His creation free from the penalty of sin. If you would just take the time to read the Gospel of John and the book of Romans, in the New Testament, you would understand this clearly.

Happy hunting.

PS, if you have questions, feel tree to reply to this blog. May God open your eyes to see His truth, as He did mine 37 years ago.
