Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away—for it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.” (Mark 16:1-7)

“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

And he has given us this command: Whoever LOVES God must also LOVE his brother. 1 John 4:21

Easter is the second biggest day of the year for most atheists. This is a day they can really be noticed as they attempt to force everybody to live their godless lives. They want everybody to enjoy the empty useless lives they have become accustomed to rather than the joyful lives they see many Christians living, especially around Easter and Christmas. They know they have the full power and force of the gummit since theirs is the official religion of the Gestapo. As atheists they believe they have evolved over Christians as they think they are the highest evolution of the earth which makes them the only godlike creature on the earth.

As Christians we look at Easter as the greatest holiday on the calendar. We believe the Lord Jesus came down to earth in the form of man to suffer the pains and temptations of mankind. He became the perfect lamb to be sacrificed for our sins which are what keeps us apart from God. We don’t believe we are deserving of his sacrifice or that we could ever earn the right to live in God’s presence but Christ’s sacrifice washes those sins from us and God’s Grace allows us to be forgiven for our humanity. This is why we have hope for the future because we realize we have been given Salvation by the greatest sacrifice and gift ever given, God’s only son.

This hope helps us to survive through times of trials since we know that no matter what happens we will never lose God’s gift. The world can take everything away from us including our lives but they can never take away our faith in the Lord. We know that when times are difficult God will help us through those times and the hope of eternity with him can give us comfort and peace. We understand there will be all sorts of difficulty since God’s hope is eternal. This keeps you moving forward as your faith keeps you looking into the future optimistically since you understand God has a plan for your life.

To go through life as an atheist leads to an empty existence since you have nothing to carry you through the tough times. If you have no concept of an eternity with God or heaven you have nothing to look forward to or faith to carry you forward. To live your life believing in something as sterile as evolution that we are nothing more than an extremely random chance while ignoring the obvious impossibility of those odds is a nothingness existence. So you live your life with no more meaning than a dog and really perhaps less meaning, at least dogs make people happy. So you live your life with no real meaning since you know after seventy years you’re going to die and then rot nothing else, emptiness.

The atheists need meaning so they try to become good people by being liked and doing good deeds. The problem is that they or a group of them decide what a good deed is or who are the good people by consensus or group think. The group may decide it is good such as Hitler’s Germany who said they needed to weed out the weak and infirmed for the greater good of society. Same with our society that says it is better to kill a baby then to bring it into poverty even in a country that prides itself on upward mobility. The group may decide it can destroy a business if it decides the business isn’t satisfying some arbitrary goal they set up which makes them a good person. The society may define what is living a good life and what is not by brainwashing that society into an agenda driven set of morals to make those people try to become good people.

The main problem with atheism is there are no defined set of Commandments or morals to live their lives by so they are continually defining actions themselves. This leads to confusion and moral relativism where they are able to define anything as a good and right moral as long as they aren’t doing something even less moral. There is no personal morality only a fuzzy set of social morals they need to continually follow to counter their personal fallacies. This is not only an empty and dangerous way to live a life but has social consequences which we are seeing every day in society. There is no social fabric in our Godless society, only people living empty lives and excusing every sin as an old fashioned thinking when we are seeing millions being destroyed every day on the street. This is what happens and worse when you have man decide good from evil, he will often choose evil.

So we have one of the biggest days of the year for atheists to rally their troops and make their world more Godless. Their anger and resentment only reveals a giant emptiness in their lives as Christians around the world humble themselves to the amazing gift Jesus gave them and the comfort it reveals. We understand how far we fall short as men of the perfection God is. We understand and have a set of rules in the Bible to live our lives by and although we fail every day we know we have a God who loves us and has the perfect grace to forgive us of those sins. We also know that we will try harder the next day and the day after that to live our lives in his grace and attempt to help our brothers and sisters both here and yet to be born to escape their lives of emptiness and misery. We all know there is a God who wants to be a larger part of our lives to make it fuller and more abundant, but we have to humble ourselves and accept him into our lives to lead it. Once you accept him you no longer are living an empty life but one full of purpose and direction. This is the gift of Easter that we will never deserve.

Happy Easter

As usual, very nicely written and concise. May all our friends on F.R. enjoy this glorious day. God Bless us and God Bless America. The devil is among us and we have the opportunity to crush its head. Please God give us all the motivation to stop any more destruction to our country. The country that so many of us took up arms to protect.

FOX Romney-PIMP Brit Hume attacks the Speaker from
the get go for Romney.

Issues? Forgetabout it.

It is all for Romney, says the RINO Hume.

The Speaker talks of the need for ‘breakthroughs’
and focuses on world growth.

The RINO Hume redirects the Speaker back to Romney.

The Speaker shows his vast knowledge by comparing
various country’s economies to the US.

The RINO Hume redirects the Speaker back to the
‘platform’ for Romney. Hume always follows the script
and his leaking hatred for Speaker Gingrich.

The Speaker talks about debt repayment issues, energy,
and RINO Hume grips his fingers tightly and returns
the issue to “Romney”.

Hume the BAIN/FOX Romney-PIMP: Compare it to Romney.
Did you meet with Romney.
Hume really gets mad with the mention of ‘etch a sketch’
and in response, the RINO Hume defends Romney
like his lawyer.


On a day when freedom, love and compassion should rule,
the RINO Hume only wants to talk about Romney,
and how the Speaker is “in the middle of things” in
his “post political career”.

The Speaker maintains he is working to be the nominee.

The RINO Hume demonstrates that he is Romney’s flak
working for Biased FOX “News” as he pushes the Speaker
to also explicitly have Mr. Santorum pull out.

Brilliant once more,the classic battle of good vs. evil never ends. While we worship the Savior and God the atheists worship nothing. Their plight is well known.

Sen. Kent Conrad (Democrat) doing his best to sidestep the FNS question about why no budget passed in the Senate. Flimsy excuse about passing a “Budget Control Act.” Thankfully, Sen. Ron Johnson (Republican) brings everyone back to reality.

Tough weekend for many of us here in the Keys and elsewhere.
We lost one of our favorite sons who represented us so well all over the world especially on the small screen.
Jose Wejebe was killed in a tragic plane crash Friday near Naples Fla.
IT appears his small kit plane may have been caught by a strong gust of wind causing the crash, hard to tell yet.NTSB will be all over this one.
Wejebe was a great guy, fishermen,father,tv star and more. Everyone who watched his weekly show “Spanish Fly” on ESPN and later moving to the Outdooor channel got a glimpse of just how talented he was.
I was lucky enough to count him as a friend an interviewed him many times.
He will be missed by many.,0,1268044.story

My friend Steve Waters who writes for the Sun Sentinel and Orlando Sun did this piece.
