This was an interesting week on the computer in many ways. On the blogging front, lots of interesting material became available this week.
As most of us think our Mom’s are “The Best Mom in the World,” Mother’s Day began with this post. It is one of two pieces I wrote this week.
The Universe Has Been Carefully Dialed to an Astonishingly Precise Value is one of two posts taken from Sherryn’s outstanding discernment blog called: The Narrowing Path.
Melbourne completes coverage of Australian Demonstrations does just that. We head off to another continent next week.
NO DUE PROCESS IN AMERICA? discusses a time in America where some Americans had just that. It was my second shot at writing this week.
Home School Legal Defense Association Publicizes the Bodnariu Case was found at Valeria’s blog this week. The HSLDA, an American organization, put together the best short documentary about the Bodnariu family that I’ve seen.
4 Empty Beds in Norway: 4 of Thousands is a repeat of the HSLDA video because I like it so much.
Bono Meets Eugene Peterson is an well-researched Herescope article on the two giants. Peterson thinks it is OK to add to God’s Word.
Lead me Lord by Gospel Trumpet Singers is a prayer in the form of a beautiful song.
My Friend Ken and CPS Recorded/Vibeke Speaks is an actual recording of Ken Olsen and the mother of his child, Vibeke Morrissey, and their encounter with a CPS worker.
Can a man change a man—short answer-NO, only Jesus can change a man. is another educational word study by Manny Rodriquez, my blogging buddy.
NORWAY…A COUNTRY WHERE EVEN ART IS UPSIDE DOWN!!! is a verbal work of art about a hanging work of art. Ken Olsen is very creative.
Russian Officials Speculate That a Nuclear War Could Leave Romania a “Smoking Ruins” comments on Putin’s Push because of a weak American Foreign Policy.
Why do we want to look like the world? is a question all Christians should ask themselves. Dan C. writes on the subject.
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION is a timely piece about revisionism. Thank you for posting this, Manny. We all need to read all of it.
The Dangerously Influential Gospel of Tim Keller is important information in this era of wolves among the flock. Sherryn has posted information about a false teacher that many know of. Interestingly, Keller wrote the forward to the recent biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
This Light of Mine ~ is a Christian poem by Deborah Ann Belka. No week would be complete without reading something from Deborah Ann.
Some good times were had with the kids this week. Got to help the Special Ed kids at Fountain Lake on Field Day. We got wet, we jumped in the bounce houses, we enjoyed the sunshine.
I took care of this week’s best joke of the day.
So…What do you call a friendly school?
I wish you all a blessed week,
As Pastor Doug, an author of one of the comments states: “Fantastic piece of history, theology, and doctrine all rolled up into one powerful article! Excellent job!” Thank you for sharing this with all of us, Manny. You must read this all of the way to the end. CR
Please make an effort to read this article through to conclusion– i promise you will have had a good use of your valuable time. Pastor Cary has a way with words that will tickle as well as impart wisdom. –Manny
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION
by Pastor Cary Gordon

On June 29 and 30th, of 2010, Opinion Dynamics conducted a scientific national poll.[i] It revealed that 78% of Americans believe the founding fathers would be unhappy with our condition as a nation today. No doubt, the corruption and abuse of the 1st Amendment in our courts would be their chief horror.
Unbeknownst to most of today’s attorneys, judges, and even modern political science professors, (much less our public school students and elected officials), the United…

What a wonderful week it has been! Sunday night, I was invited to speak at the Betania Romanian Church here in Hot Springs. They were such a gracious group of believers. I informed them that I was practicing my speech for the upcoming worldwide protest on them and they were very attentive. After an hour of worship and Bible Reading, I was given the opportunity to share my speech. Brother Gabriel translated the speech into Romanian. There were about 120 or so in the congregation, maybe more. Some of the members in the church knew more about the Norwegian problem than I do. Brother Daniel has become my contact and thinks that maybe 50 people will show up from his church at the demonstration on April 16th.
The speech was interesting. It was the first time that I have had to hold back tears during this learning experience. The training I received at Toastmasters (a speech club I once belonged to) was very helpful.
THAT WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK!
This is how the blog week started:
A post was then put up about the coming worldwide demonstration. Here is an excellent video showing demonstrations that have already occurred this year:
I’m a bit of a theology guy if you haven’t noticed. Dan’s blog, The Battle Cry, which I have been following for years had a great article that I re-blogged this week. It featured Pastor Gary Gilley of The Southern View Chapel. I have great respect for the discernment of Pastor Gilley.
YOU CAN FIND THE ARTICLE HERE. Don’t let the title of this piece scare you.
Two posts were then re-blogged, one by my blogging buddy, Manny Rodriquez and other by my American/Romanian friend Chris Prunean. Chris had great news! A judge in Norway made a judgement that baby Ezekiel must be returned to the Bodnariu Family! A CPS worker has stated that there may be an appeal in the case, but for now the baby is home with his parents who are praying for a similar judgement in the cases of their other 4 children.
Here are the reunited Bodnarius:
American students are supposed to take American History in 5th grade, 8th grade, 12th grade, and again in college.
THIS POST WAS SENT TO ME BY BARBARA ANABLE. How is it possible that any American college student can’t answer the question: “Who won the Civil War?”
DELIGHT IN TRUTH LISTED CITIES WORLDWIDE WHERE DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST NORWAY’S CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES WILL BE HELD HERE. He was kind enough to include a small city like Hot Springs on his list. Hopefully, many will learn of the ongoing situation in Norway.
On Thursday, Jose Fernandez, the Superintendent of Hot Springs National Park approved my Special Use Permit request for a demonstration here in Hot Springs on the day of Worldwide protests. I would like to thank Tricia, Jose’s assistant, for her professional handling of my request. THE DETAILS OF THE HOT SPRINGS PROTEST CAN BE FOUND HERE.
By the grace of God, I was able to manage to squeeze in four days of teaching in different area schools. We have wonderful children living in our area. I got to teach Jr. High Social Studies, keyboarding, and music. Friday was fantastic. I got to spend my day with the special ed. kids at Fountain Lake Elementary.I am constantly encouraged by CHRISTian poetry by Deborah Ann. HER WONDERFUL POEM MAY BE FOUND HERE.
I pray that all of you have a blessed weekend.
