Camp and Scholarships

Hello all,

It has alas, been another week since I have blogged. It seems that the older I get the less time I have for some parts of life I have enjoyed in times past. (Reading, for example) However, I do have some good news to share with you.

First of all, I would like to FINALLY tell you guys about what happened at church camp. We spent a lot of time in the Word over the weekend and there where many who where drawing near to the Lord. When the time came of Saturday night for praise and worship, many hearts where softened and crying out to the Lord. There were people on their knees and people repenting of their sins and worshiping the Lord. It was really a blessed time. It was really good to be in the fellowship of Christian brothers and sister who are truly seeking the Lord and desiring to follow Him. I praise the Lord for His goodness.

Second of all, yesterday we got a letter from East Central University. I was at work when it came and had come to my grandma's house to work on her computer when mom called me. The letter said that ECU had examined my ACT scores and is willing to grant me a scholarship for 500 dollars a semester! That with another scholarship will pay for my college education! Blessed be the name of the Lord! I am very humbled and blessed by the Lord's grace and mercy on my life. He is very good.

That's all for now. Talk to you later.

The Greatest Want of the World

Hello everyone,

Man this week flew by. I just realized I have not blogged since Tuesday and I thought I had better update. :-) I still need to get a post out on the great things that happened at camp, but please allow me to share this with you. This ends an audio story we have and this time I took it down. It is well worth any young man's time to read. This is our goal.

The greatest want in the world is the want of men.
Men who will not be bought or sold
Men who in their inmost souls are true and honest.
Men who do not fear to call sin by its right name.
Men who's conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole.
Men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.

May we be those men.

Help Save The Life Of An Afghan Man Who Refuses To Deny Christ

Here is a email from the AFA. Please have a look. Yes, I am back. and I hope to fill you guys in on some of the great things that the Lord did at camp. Talk to you later!
The BSB,
- Travis

Dear Travis,

Abdul Rahman, 41, faces death because he converted from Islam to Christianity and refuses to convert back to Islam. His family accused him of being a Christian. During his trial last Thursday in Kabul, Rahman confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago while working as a medical aid worker for an international Christian group helping Afghan refugees in the Pakistani city of Peshawar. Read the WorldNetDaily article here -

"We are not against any particular religion in the world. But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law. It is an attack on Islam," Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada said. The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, said he offered to drop the charges if Mr. Rahman converted back to Islam, but Rahman refused. "He would have been forgiven if he changed back. But he said he was a Christian and would always remain one. We are Muslims, and becoming a Christian is against our laws. He must get the death penalty," Wasi said. TAKE ACTION Please email President Bush and ask him to intervene to save the life of Abdul Rahman. Help get others involved in saving the life of this Christian who refuses to deny Christ. Please forward this to friends and family and ask them to send the emails.

Click Here to Email President Bush Now!Also, please pray that God will intervene to save his life. If you think our efforts are worthy, would you please support us with a small gift by clicking here. Thank you for caring enough to get involved.

Youth Camp 2006

Hello everyone,

Today, my sister and I are getting ready for our church's annual Youth Camp. In years past it has provided a very welcome time of well supervised encouragement and fellowship to our youth. I truly feel that there are few places on this earth that are as uplifting and encouraging as this camp alongside the youth from our church. We play soccer, basketball, volleyball and board-games in the beautiful rolling hills and mountains of Western Oklahoma. This will be my last year due to my graduation this year, so this particular trip has special meaning to me.

I would like to remind my blog readers to not loose heart as the days march on and evil seems so strong. Be reminded that there is a mighty God who looks after those who take up their cross and follow Him. Lord willing, I will be back at the blogging controls Sunday night or Monday.

If you are hard up for reading material with out your daily dose of the BBS, you might have a look at what I was doing one year ago at this time. I went paging at the State Senate, got interviewed TWICE and was trying my best to support Terri Schivo. :-( But all in all, a cool time to look back on. So if your interested about what was going in WAY BACK THEN in March 2005, have a look.

Blessings to everyone,

Links and Thoughts

Was Jesus Political? - A very interesting article answering that very provoking question.

Regenerate Our Culture - Yes, it is coming today, but there have been some technical problems which have delayed it slightly. It should be up and running soon.

Square Talk Radio should be returning to all its fans very soon as the Regenerate Our Culture podcast. :-) Be looking for some good shows soon.

I have been convicted lately that I really need to draw closer to the Lord on a day-to-day basis. At this time last year, I was the the good habit of reading my Bible both day and night as I lied down and as I rose up. I need to get back to that. This old world can only be changed for the better by people who are rooted and grounded in the Word. I have recently been encouraged by the new Song of the Month over at Please give it a download. It is called Greatest God.

Talk to you guys later,

High stakes -A News Wrap-Up

High stakes - the is a very in-depth article about the current state of the abortion ban in South Dakota. Have a read. It included the idea that we as pro-lifers may have jumped the gun by directly attacking abortion before we suffitiontly changed the Supreme Court. This is an interesting question. Please continue to support this bill through prayer and any other means the Lord places on your heart to use. (donations to pro-life organisation, etc)

'Winston Churchill' in a straitjacket?

I see the point these people are trying to make, but its a really tacky way to make that point.

Lunch-break Post

Have a look at the ACLU hypocrisy.

Hat Tip:

A picture of me!

Hey guys!

Today is my work day, but I just wanted to show you my new blog picture! I posted it here to give you a closer look. What do you think?

Also, Commie Teacher, Jay Bennish (has been) Reinstated. As I stated yesterday, I am not as concerned about his bashing Bush, but more about his whole teaching pholosophy of leaving out right and wrong and good and evil.

Well, that's all for now! Talk to you guys later!

Thoughts of Men, Morals, and History

After hearing the audio of that teacher from Colorado ranting about the perversity of our country, I took to thinking. One of his major points is, why do we have a right to retain and design weapons of mass destruction, while discouraging other nations from doing so?

The answer to that, to me is simple. We are the good guys, they are the bad guys and we don't want them to be able to hurt us, or take away our freedom. To place all nations on the same moral footing, as that teacher does, is to make history into mindless garbled mush. If you teach history without clearly showing who was in the right and way, history just becomes a bunch of boring mindless information about a bunch of dead people did to no end, good or evil. What in the world would make people want to turn history into that? Their own diabolical ends no doubt.

History is the true story of Good vs Evil, Right vs. Wrong, and Christ over Sin. History after all is, HIS-story. To present history in such a way as to remove right and wrong from it, is to promote lethargy, and laxity among the next generation. If a generation is raise according to the principles that teacher was instructing those students in, we will suddenly have a large group of people who no longer care what is right and what is wrong. Slowly, surly, with that kind of teaching, our nation will not longer view our nations hero's of Normandy and Iwo Jima as good men fighting the oppression of evil, but as another line of monkeys seeking their own dominance. With this lie our schools are turning children away from wisdom.

Prov 1:7 ¶ The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools
despise wisdom and instruction.

Then it goes on to say what the fear of the Lord is.

Prov 8:13 "The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverted mouth, I hate.

So what these teachers are doing is teaching children to accept evil as a natural thing people have the "right" to do. That could not be more false! Pfft. Good grief there is a lot of stuff that needs fixed in this old world. But I am encouraged because the Word goes on to say:

"When the Adversary shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall
lift up a standard against him." Isaiah 59:19

Blessed be the Name of the Lord. My fellow Christians, we are called to be a part of this host. We are to proclaim the truth throughout the land. Let us be about our task.

Taking a Stand - Delegate Don Dwyer

Gay marriage opponent calls for impeachment of Maryland judge

Same story from the Family Policy Council

And last but not least, I found this this article which seems to be the most in-depth of the three. (Video included) This one goes on to say that the judge in question, a Ms. Brooke Murdock, overturned a 33 year old law "against same-sex marriage". What gives her the right to do that I ask? Why does she have the right to overthrow a clearly constitutional statute? A statute that is and was clearly supported by the writers of our constitution as we saw in my post yesterday. This is a clear overstepping of judicial power. Thomas Jefferson warned us that:

"[T]o consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional
questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us
under the despotism of an oligarchy. . . . The Constitution has erected no such
single tribunal.
The Constitution . . . [would be] a mere thing of wax in the hands of the
judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please."(link)

That is where the problem lies. When a judge is able to invent from thin air the right for sodomy, he or she clearly has overstepping the bounds of the constitution and the bounds of all that is righteous and holy. Let us look at the thoughts of John David Michaelis, the author of an 1814 four-volume legal work. (Text provided by David Barton here)

"Whoever, therefore, wishes to ruin a nation, has only to get this vice (Sodomy)
introduced; for it is extremely difficult to extirpate it where it has once
taken root because it can be propagated with much more secrecy . . . and when we
perceive that it has once got a footing in any country, however powerful and
flourishing, we may venture as politicians to predict that the foundation of its
future decline is laid and that after some hundred years it will no longer be
the same . . . powerful country it is at present."

Let us look at an example of a court out of control.
If a judge had been allowed by the legislature to overturn laws that the people make without any check, slavery would not have been abolished. (see this article about half way down the page)

This is the reason that legislators like Delegate Dwyer MUST take action to stop these judges from overturning laws that are both constitutional and moral. To allow otherwise is to turn our country into a dictatorship of nine persons in black.

(Agent Tim recently heard this man speak. That must have been very cool and to top it off, it gave me a great post idea. )

Most Americans believe abortion wrong

Darwin smacked in new U.S. poll -
Whopping 69 percent of Americans want alternate theories in classroom

This is a good example of the American people allowing a bunch of liberal kooks to lead our nation down a path that is wrong. "We the people" need to take up the reins of government and fix these problems.

Gangsters under instructions to shoot "to scare" border agents - Bullets can fly both ways, buddy. This guy must be a nut. What thug in his right mind would tell his minions to "shoot to scare" a 6' 4" 250 pound Texas Border patrolmen armed with a 9mm or a 30-06? Not a good idea. Sounds like a suicide pact to me.

G.O.P. Leaders Vowing to Block Ports Agreement

DeLay wins Texas GOP nomination

These two items of media attention I am still studying and have not yet reached a firm stance on yet. SecDef has some interesting thoughts on the port issue you might want to check out.

Video of Teacher who compared Bush to Hitler - The wacko gives his 2 cents. Claims he was fulfilling his role as "the devils advocate". I tend to agree.

Iran Threatens U.S. With 'Harm and Pain There you go again. Bad idea. What did I tell you about messing with Texans? Especially the ones protecting our nation?

Democrat for Senate: Death penalty for practicing 'gays' - Interestingly enough, this is the position of our founding fathers. Have a look at this article which includes quotes like this which where law at the time.

"That the detestable and abominable vice of buggery [sodomy] . . . shall be from henceforth adjudged felony . . . and that every person being thereof convicted by verdict, confession, or outlawry [unlawful flight to avoid prosecution], shall be hanged by the neck until he or she shall be dead."

Well, thats all for now!

South Dakota Abortion Ban passed!

Read more here and here. We have to go to town on a college campus tour now, but more analysis will come later.

Talk to you then!

I am so glad this bill was signed into law yesterday. This is a clear cut case of the people of South Dakota taking the law back from a bunch of liberal justices and saying with their votes, "We will not allow the wholesale murder of children to continue, the buck stops here".
Boy howdy, do we ever need more states to pass laws like this.

My guess is that the liberals are going to play their same old hand, "woman's "right" to privacy, woman's right to choose, etc, etc. I have a question for those who support these views, what about the babies rights, hmm? I believe our government should protect its citizens, not kill them. As I have said before, the only mindset that allows for a mother to kill her child is a mindset of humanism, a mindset that places the mother in the position of God, a mindset, by the way, which goes along nicely with evolution's "natural selection". These mindsets take into no account such has beens as right and wrong. Doesn't jump out at me as the type of philosophy I want my country to use as its basis for law. Let's throw it out and get another. One who believes that life begins at conception and innocents should be protected if at all possible.

That's all for now,

Scouting the News

Good morning everyone!

Well, today is my big work day, so I don't have a lot of time this morning, but here goes.

I thought this was kinda interesting, the winners of 'Christian Oscars' where announced. Both "Sue Thomas F.B. Eye" and "The Chronicles of Narnia" made the cut. Great shows, the both of them.

And in this very interesting article from WORLD magazine, writer Lynn Vincent talks about the Democratic party's new Born again? style message.

I talked about the change in the liberals rhetoric in this post, during the President's State of the Union Address. The libby's are just out for your votes, ladies and gentleman, and their core party platform has not changed. They STILL support abortion, as a national party. They STILL support the Welfare state and they STILL support gay marriage! Any Democrat you find who is pro-life and pro-Christian marriage, is the exception in his party and by his vote for members of that party still supports a party which supports and upholds these abominable acts.

In other news, Agent Tim has caught a dreadful case of March Madness. (I wish we all where struck by such good luck.) He visited PHC and got to visit in person with Scott Somerville. Lucky Dog. :-D Go Tim!

Well, that's it for today! See you later everybody!

Gone to Grandma's...then Today's Headlines

I'll be back later! Talk to you then!

Edit: Well, I am back. :-) As Alex talked about today, there was a young man who recorded a liberal geography teacher ranting about the similarities between Bush and Hitler while in class. (Just wondering...What does political theory have to do with geography anyway?) But that was a big issue today and will continue to be one to watch.

Also, the Senate Approved the Patriot Act Renewal.

Another story which didn't seem to get as much attention was this story intitled "Bush differs with South Dakota abortion bill". It is a bit late for me to write a full comment, perhaps more on that later.

One thing though, is it right to kill a child because something wrong and evil happened to the mother?

James Robison's mother didn't think so.

Just some food for thought.
Goodnight all.

Abortion Ban, Humanism, and the Scripture

YIPPEE! LOOK AT THIS! Sign your name and support this with everything you've got!! This bill goes so far as to make abortion illegal except to save the life of the mother.

(Before I get totally lost in my rant, I would like to send you to the newest organization who is stepping up to the plate in the fight for our country, Regenerate Our Culture. This is the brainchild of the likes of Agent Tim, Spunky Jr., Mission3:6teen and SmartHomeschool. This new nucleus will be the new home of Square Talk and will house a magazine as well as a lot of other cool stuff. So, after you read my post and sign the petition supporting the abortion ban, head over there and check it out!)

Help us get 1,000,000 Names on the Petition to Governor Rounds!

Dear Travis,

A bill that would ban nearly all abortions in South Dakota and spark a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision is heading to Governor Mike Rounds for his signature. Planned Parenthood, which operates the only clinic performing
abortions in South Dakota, has pledged to challenge the measure in court if Gov.
Rounds signs it into law.

Gov. Rounds' signature would mark the first time since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide that a state legislature has passed such a sweeping ban. The bill, known as H.B. 1215, makes abortion illegal except to save the life of the mother.

The bill was sponsored in the House by Rep. Roger Hunt, a Republican, and in the Senate by Sen. Julie Bartling, a Democrat. The bill states that "life begins at the
time of conception ..." and that "under the Constitution of South Dakota, a
pregnant mother and her unborn child ...each possess a natural and inalienable
right to life."

The legislators went through the proper legislative channels to pass the law, and did not depend on an activist judge to make law like the pro-abortion supporters do.

Urgent Action Needed!It is important that Gov. Rounds hears from pro-life Christians all across America. Please read and sign the urgent petition to South Dakota Governor Rounds. The petition includes a 'thank you' to the South Dakota House and Senate sponsors of the pro-life legislation.

Please forward this important alert to family and friends. More than 47 million abortions have been performed in the 33 years since the Roe v. Wade decision and this could signal new hope for the unborn child.

Guys, this is the chance of a lifetime.
How better to draw the line in the sand between right and wrong, the rule of law vs. the rule or judicial activist judges, and the rule of life over death? The people of South Dakota have thrown down the gantlet and have said with this action "We will not allow children to be slaughtered within our state". The line of right and wrong can clearly be seen, this is progress. The greatest threat to our nation at this time in our history is humanism, that is, "placing man in the place of God". The allowance of abortion is the clear branch of this evil root of thinking. How else can a mother justify murdering her innocent child then to place herself in the place of God and say "I will chose whether you will live or die". If we desire to bring our nation back to it One and Only, Great and Strong Foundation, we must defeat the vileness of humanism. It has been revealed to me just recently, that of all the battles Christians face in the modern political spectrum, the evil we are fighting at all fronts is humanism. This is the evil that says man was not created, this is the evil that says the founding fathers opinions no longer matter in constitutional questions, this is the evil that seduces voters to stay home from the polls and refuse to fight evil.

These are the man Paul spoke of in his second letter to Timothy when he said:

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant,
revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable,
malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous,
reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a
form of godliness, although they have denied its power
; Avoid such men as
For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women
weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never
able to come to the knowledge of the truth
. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed
Moses, so these {men} also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in
regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their
folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes's and Jambres's folly was

2 Timothy 3: 1-9

Can words describe any better the depravity our nation is slowly sinking deeper and deeper into? But be encouraged, for Paul continues...

2 Tim 3:10 ¶ Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith,
patience, love, perseverance, persecutions, {and} sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium {and} at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of
them all the Lord rescued me!

Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil men and impostors will proceed {from bad} to worse, deceiving and being deceived. You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned {them,} and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

I solemnly charge {you} in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season {and} out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but {wanting} to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves
teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

¶ For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the
time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.

2 Timothy 3:10-4:8

Now, we know the course set before us. We are to fulfill our God given role as the salt and light of the earth, by "Knowing the sacred writings" from the time we are a child, being ready in and out of season to teach, correct, reprove, and exhort the Truth. We are to be ready to receivpersecutionon and triblulation, for Christ is forever faithful and will not allow us into a trail that cannot be overcome through him.

Ahh, what glorious Scripture! Blessed be the name of the Lord!
