THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF ATHEISM

——————————————————————————–
I. Thou shalt have no other gods before the State.

II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any Church building or any State document, which mentions the God of the Bible.

III. Thou shalt not take the name of Charles Darwin in vain.

IV. Remember the five weekdays of Public Education, to keep them holy. For the Church cannot overcome in one day what the Public Education system teaches in five days.

V. Honor thy Mother Earth and thy Father Time, that your days may be spent without purpose in this life.

VI. Thou shalt not kill anyone who is guilty of murder, but only those who are weak, unwanted, or hinder the greater good of humankind as determined by the State.

VII. Thou shalt commit adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, and any other type of sexual perversion, which destroys the family as the foundation of society and gives tyrannical power to the State.

VIII. Thou shalt steal the wages of thy neighbor by enacting new taxes, and then, redistribute these hard-earned wages to those whom you have enslaved through the welfare system.

IX. Thou shalt not bear any witness against the Theory of Evolution.

X. Thou shalt covet the blessings of a Christian nation, but deny the Providence of God who can alone grant such blessings.

“I don’t cotton to feedlot beef”

DO HARD THINGS

July 27th, 2007

This is a great encouragement from Greg Harris’s sons, Alex and Brett, on their website. It goes along with my philosophy that

1. “work is good”

2. “working together is better”

3. “working together is fun”

4. ” working together with a vision is even Better”

A Lesson From The Vikings: Do Hard Things
The Vikings were fierce pirates and warriors who terrorized Europe from the late 700’s to about A.D. 1100. Brutal and fearsome they looted and burned parts of England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Russia, and Spain. Other Europeans were so frightened of the Vikings that a special prayer for protection was offered in the churches: “God, deliver us from the fury of the Northmen.”

Most historians attribute the Vikings devastating effectiveness to their warships, which were swift and light and could be easily dragged ashore. This allowed them to strike suddenly and then quickly retreat to the safety of the sea. However, my wise father has identified another contributing factor—one that holds incredible significance for all of us: The Vikings rowed themselves to battle.

Unlike the Romans, who used galley slaves to row their great warships, the Vikings took full responsibility for this strenuous activity. This tells us two things: 1) the Vikings didn’t feel that rowing was beneath them—they pursued competence in every area pertaining to their success, and 2) they were seriously ripped. No wonder the people of Europe were afraid of these guys—their muscles were moving twenty-ton boats through the water!

Here’s The Rebelution’s challenge: Do hard things. Learn a lesson from the Vikings. Do hard things and you will carry the battle every time. If you are willing to take on responsibilities that others delegate or neglect you will gain the benefits of that exertion.

Too often we delegate the responsibility for our education, our character, our future, etc. to others who hold far less of a stake in how things turn out. And more often than not a failure to perform in the areas of character and competence are due to a lack of past exertion.

Look around you. Many American young people are doing little more than “making it”—and this in a culture of unbelievably low standards. Few shoulder the burden of doing more than is required—yet that was the key to the Viking’s success!

….. I want you to ask yourselves the following questions:

Am I choosing to Do Hard Things in my personal life? In my education? In the goals I set?
Am I exceeding expectations or just getting by?
Am I robbing myself of greater achievements because I’m unwilling to take on certain responsibilities?

Happy Fourth of July

July 4th, 2007

In honor of this National Holiday, I am posting the 4th verse of the Star Spangled Banner, which acknowledges God’s providential blessing on our Nation, and the view this land was preserved for us to be used by us to His Glory.

“Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto “In God Is Our Trust”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave”

Grassfed Delayed

July 2nd, 2007

due to the drought we have had we will be holding off ou butchering date until October. The good news is the 25 percent increase projected this year in beef prices due to high demand for corn due to ethenol consumption will not affect our prices. So your bargain for buying local, fresh, natural, safe, and healthier just got even better. Please place your orders ASAP as we will run out and it will be first come, first serve!!

Thanks,
