Will the real Mount Sinai please stand up?

Christian tradition places Mount Sinai on the southern part of the Sinai Peninsula. However, several problems have been identified with this site. One is that there is no archaeological evidence prior to the 6th Century A.D. Secondly, it has been stated that only a small group of very healthy individuals could travel that distance in the number of days described in the Bible. A larger group of several million individuals consisting of men, women, children, the elderly and herds of animals could not possibly arrive at the site in the time described.

Professor Emmanuel Anati who graduated from the Jerusalem University believes he has found the true Mount of Olives at Har Karkom in the Negev Desert. Har Karkom is a particular kind of desert called “hammada.” The main characteristic of this terrain, covered by a compact layer of small pebbles, is that there isn’t any process of sedimentation or erosion. The surface has remained unchanged for tens of thousands of years, and maintains in perfect state of conservation, the traces of whoever has put up a tent or dwelling since the beginning of man.

The precise location and shape of every tent or other structure that has ever been erected in this desert is still clearly evident. Near the base of this particular mountain is the footprint of a rectangular tent-type structure that precisely matches the size and shape of the tabernacle that Moses constructed. The match is perfect down to the smallest detail. Even the position of every tent peg is marked by large stones, well aligned.

Is this the true Mount Sinai? There are some archaeologists who disagree, but the Vatican has seen enough evidence to officially decree that this site is the Mount Sinai of the Exodus journey.

Why Should We Vote?

“It is not easy to determine who are the more criminal. They who would make their way to places of power and trust by indirect means, or they who have so little concern for the welfare of their country as to harken to them. No civil rulers are to be obeyed when they enjoin things that are inconsistent with the commands of God: All such disobedience is lawful and glorious.”
---Jonathan Mayew (1720-1766) Preacher in The First Great Spiritual Awakening

When a citizen gives his suffrage [vote] to a man of known immorality he abuses his trust; he sacrifices not only his own interest, but that of his neighbor, he betrays the interest of his country.”— Noah Webster (1758-1843) Father of the Dictionary & American Patriot

When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, just men who will rule in the fear of God. The preservation of [our] republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded.”— Noah Webster (1758-1843) Father of the Dictionary & American Patriot

"If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation."— Samuel Adams (1722–1803) Father of the American Revolution, Patriot and Statesman

“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of inlldcls or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”— Patrick Henry (1736-1799) Patriot, Lawyer and Orator

“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.”— Joseph Story (1779-1845) Lawyer, Supreme Court Justice & influential commentators on the U.S. Constitution

“Elections belong to the people. It is their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”— Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) Sixteenth President of the United States

“The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities. ... If the next centennial does not find us a great nation... it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” — James Garfield (1831-1881) Twentieth president of the United States

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”— Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) Sixteenth President of the United States

“Our nation will prosper or decline in direct proportion to our selection of leaders who are guided by the Holy Spirit. If we fail to select Godly leaders our destiny will surely be as that of the Roman Empire.”— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States

The world is demanding that Israel give their land back to the Palestinians

The nations of the world are highly offended at the takeover of Palestinian land. Even many in the United States are joining the call for Israel to step off the face of the earth. Helen Thomas, a well known White House correspondent recently said that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go back to Germany and Poland or the United States.”

Okay then, let’s just make things fair, Ms. Thomas. If you think the Jews don’t belong in Israel, why are you residing in the United States? Shouldn’t you be calling for all people of European descent to leave America and give it back to the American Indians? How about France and Germany? Shouldn’t they give their land back to the Gauls? Iran is currently occupied by Islamists. Shouldn’t they leave their “occupied” land and give it back to the Persians? Russia, which is known for its hatred of God, was once a Christian nation. Shouldn’t they return their land back to the Christians?

Who said, "I like it when the government provides for my needs?"

Today’s society is increasingly looking to the government to provide for its every-day needs. More and more, we see people with their hands out, asking for food stamps, clothing, housing assistance and health care. As the socialism state-of-mind creeps in and gains strength and power, more and more people are apt to discontinue striving to achieve, and instead, sit back and permit the government to provide for their needs.

On the surface, government hand-outs may sound enticing, but there is a price to be paid for such pampering. Everything in life comes with a price. Mankind is meant to work for his food, clothing and shelter. Socialism appears to be the magical answer that problem when it says, “Let the government provide for your needs.” When we as a society succumb to that plea, we will still pay for our food, clothing and shelter. How will we be paying for it? We will be paying for it with our freedom. For every new benefit we permit the government to hand out to us, we are exchanging one more freedom in payment for that benefit.

Now, let’s go back to the question at the top of this posting. Who said, “I like it when the government provides for my needs?” Perhaps you’d like a hint. It was said nearly 3,500 years ago. The Hebrew nation complained to Moses, “Why did you tell us that you wanted to lead us to a Promised Land flowing with milk and honey? Why did you promise us that we would be able to exchange our life of slavery for the freedom to do as we please? Why are you taking us to a place where we will have the supposed privilege of working for ourselves instead of working as slaves for Pharaoh? Do you realize that there are giants in the land? Have you seen the walled cities? There are too many obstacles between us and the successful life you have told us about. We don’t want any of that. We would be happier to live our lives as slaves for Pharaoh because he gives us housing; he gives us food; he gives us water; and he gives us clothing. Please Moses, take us back to Egypt. We will be more than happy to exchange our promised freedom in return for having our basic needs met.”

You won’t find those exact words in the Bible, but if you examine the context of the Hebrew mumblings while on the Exodus journey, you will have to agree with the above paraphrasing. What was God’s reaction to the Hebrews’ socialism state-of-mind? It was one of anger and judgment. There are those who say that Jesus taught us to care for one another. Sure, the Bible encourages us to help those in need. But it is to be through our charitable giving and personal involvement, not through governmental mandates.

Today, our society is saying much the same thing as the Hebrew Children thousands of years ago. “We are tired of working hard in order to acquire our own basic needs. We want the government to take care of us. If it means losing our freedoms, then so be it. If it means answering to Big Brother, then let it be. If it means that our every move is being watched and monitored, then go for it.

There is a price to be paid for everything we have. We can work for what we get, or we can give up our freedom and let the government do it for us. Just remember one thing; the loss of freedom is the definition of slavery. What sort of price do you want to pay for your government-supplied food, clothing, shelter and health care?

Close families are important for the good of society

A strong family bond, together with a good set of values is a valuable ingredient for the good of society. Our future is contingent upon the value we place on our families. The strength and togetherness of the family unit is the oldest and most basic of values. A strong and intact family should be sought after and cherished by all of mankind. A close-knit family fosters love, companionship, inward strength and unity. Pope John Paul II said, “As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.”

The attack on the integrity of the home is near the top of Shadow Truth’s evil agenda of destruction because the home is the most influential value-teaching institution in a person’s life. The values we as a nation collectively hold are the very instruments by which we are forming the future state of our society. As the family unit declines, many of our other values will also decline.

In past years, parents had more influence over the development of their children’s value systems than any other single factor. Today’s children however, are obtaining their values from other sources. By way of television, radio, movies, video games and the internet, our children’s minds are being exposed to stimulating sounds, images, fantasies and highly questionable entertainment. Due to numerous avenues of deceit, today’s parents are losing the position of influence they once had on their children.

Children who grow up with wrecked value systems become adults with wrecked value systems. Adults run the world. Adults teach children. It doesn’t take many generations of people whose value systems are declining, to throw the entire world into chaos. This is exactly what Shadow Truth wants to do. Shadow Truth wants to come in and rescue humanity. But first, humanity must have something to be rescued from. Shadow Truth masterfully creates problems that need correcting, and then provides its devious brand of solutions to those problems.

Strong family bonds help us to thrive in all aspects of life. Lack of these bonds can lead to forever seeking that something which is missing. Don't take the value of family bonds for granted. You can mold a beautiful creation for today and the generations that follow!

Vote--It's your Responsibility

The Freedom and Success we as a society enjoy is contingent on voting. Non-voting societies tend to be oppressive, and the common people have little or no freedom or success. Voting is a right, a privilege, and most importantly, a responsibility. We are often encouraged to vote, but many eligible citizens do not vote.

Perhaps the most common reason people don’t vote is because they feel that one vote wouldn't make much of a difference. But that reason is totally and completely unfounded. If everyone felt that way, we would soon lose the freedoms we now enjoy.

Voting is easy and painless. All it takes is a little personal responsibility and a little effort. Do yourself and all of your fellow citizens a favor by going to the voting booth in every election.
