Good Morning Pioneer Baptist!


No that is not the combination to my foot locker! It is actually a sampling of what I got when I searched on the internet for the number of genders that exist in today’s upside-down world. I was spurred on to check this out because of what Glen Beck was saying on his radio show this morning, as he described and decried the world’s unabashed promotion and acceptance of what would have been laughed off the platform when I was a young fella.

Then I hear that Congress is working on passing a COVID 19 Relief Bill with money flying everywhere for virtually everything, including foreign spending. (That was not a veiled reference to the planeload of bucks sent to Iran under the Obama-Biden Master plan, though it would fit, wouldn't it?) To the ordinary American who would just like to see another so-called stimulus check added to his (or her or its) account, the question probably goes something like this: “If you want to help us out, cut the check and put it in the mail, and stop making a relief bill anything but relief!” Too simple I guess.

What’s my problem today? Same one I’ve had for years, but it’s getting worse. Why is it that a normal Christian 6th grader has more common sense than our nation’s leaders? I’m a senior-senior-senior citizen, but getting qualified for a COVID vaccine seems like jumping through more hoops than there are genders, and we’re working on sending vaccines abroad? Sure I care about the world, but I’m an American first, and certainly that before I’m a member of the United Nations. And if I’ve got to wear a mask (or 3 or 4) everywhere I go, how come President Biden is thinking about sending planes to bring in thousands of “Citizens Without Status” regardless of COVID testing? “Come On Man!” My brother-in-law, Rev. Stan Smith faced multi thousands of dollars in fines for keeping his church open, even though he was observing more social distancing than a Latter-Day-Saints High School Prom. I’m so thankful that we finally got some sanity out of the United States Supreme Court, and that Governor Newsom is being more reasonable (perhaps due to the impending “phone” call he’s about to receive.)

I close with this: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:27 KJV). Maybe that’s what gives 6th graders more common sense than most of today’s world. They just figure that our Creator knew what he was talking about when He said what He said! “I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” (John 17:14) Don’t get me wrong, I don’t desire an “us vs them.” I’m praying for all them to be us “In Christ.” "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever." (Psalm 111:10)

Love to all,
