Not sure of how they tell you/me to live?
But even if I HAD been in the epicenter, I would have been okay. Because I prepared.
Thats a difference between conservatives and liberals -- we quite literally weather the storm better because we take responsibility and take care of of ourselves. Unlike liberals who don't get ready at all and then wend their way to the nearest FEMA camp.
As for this nor-easter, its nothing at all. But that didn't stop FEMA from closing one of its centers due to 'inclement weather.'
Not a few, a lot. Quite a lot in those states.
"Neither is the callous hardening of hearts towards those who have lost everything."
They took my country, Sandy took their houses/cars/TVs. Lets call it square.
"...and there are FReepers who live there who I dont know personally, who do not *deserve* what theyre getting in the aftermath of that storm. Nobody *deserves* that."
Conservatives are strong and resourceful people, I have no doubt that they will continue to take care of themselves and their families. The lefties are the ones who can't take care of themselves, not FReepers.
And yes, sometimes some people DO deserve that. Or a bigass flood. Or exile. God can tell you that, or just look it up in His book.
I am well familiar with His Book.
Psalm 103:8-14 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9 He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. 10 He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. 13 As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. 14 For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Matthew 5:43-48 43 You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Matthew 7:1-5 Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, Let me take the speck out of your eye, when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
Luke 10:25-37 25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26 He said to him, What is written in the Law? How do you read it? 27 And he answered, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself. 28 And he said to him,You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.
29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor? 30 Jesus replied, A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.
36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers? 37 He said, The one who showed him mercy. And Jesus said to him, You go, and do likewise.
People cannot definitively say that God is sending these storms as judgment. They could be a wake up call to those people.
There is some perverse twist in human nature that results in man seeking God only when he knows he needs Him. When man is fat, dumb, and happy, people don't take any interest in Him. Sometimes the only way to get mankind's attention is to do something drastic.
If we all got what we deserved, we'd all be burning in hell at the moment.
God shows us mercy we don't deserve.
Genesis:12And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
A post with sanity .
Hard to come by these days.
Thanks for the post .
Much needed. Made my day.
VOTE FRAUD is what happened.
Not possible to get 90- 100% of the vote in Philly.
Not possible for all or most of the swing and battleground states to have ties or maybe a few thousand votes separating the candidates.
