9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. 10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. Job 2:9-10
When Texas receives hurricanes they make lemon-aid. God works in mysterious ways as we are witnessing some of the greatest Christian outreach in the Country being brought to bear in Houston. We are seeing what the Church and good old boys do when their neighbor is in trouble, they get their hands dirty and help their brothers out. Texas is America and we are watching what America is about in this disaster.
When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans we saw much of the same thing although a bigger dose of wanting the gummit to solve all of their problems. They put the people in the dome and tried to make it into a giant welfare office which was doomed to failure. The gummit cannot mobilize enough people and equipment across the country to be on the spot in hours or days and we saw what that meant with people suffering waiting for help to come to them which it did as fast as it could.
Katrina was devastation the size of twenty atomic bombs destroying the entire infrastructure and flooding an entire city with black populations in the center of the devastation. Since they have been programmed to rely on the gummit to take care of them they went to the dome and expected things to be the same and they werent, the government could not handle this many problems all at once due to the massive structure and inflexibility of the Fed.
Houston is a different situation altogether. There is so little dependence on gummit and much more reliance on the Independent Church so the solutions were quick and responsive to the need. You add to it the independence and self-reliance of the Texan and you have a completely different situation. You do not see the massive looting or crying about their losses only the brother helping brother attitude which Texans are famous. You see all those hunters and fisherman who are ridiculed 24/7 by the media saving people as you have a highway of boats going through every nook and cranny making sure people and animals are taken care of while the media doesnt know how to vilify those monster trucks and camo boats.
Houston is America and why the media hates them. Sure the gummit has a place in the safety and rescue efforts in a natural disaster, that is their job but it does not stop there. They are in Houstons case a facilitator and organizer as they instantly had thousands of people volunteering to help far faster and more efficient than the bureaucracies could hope to manage. Through the Church and various human networks the Texans showed up with their boats and hearts and pitched in to do whatever needed to be done and will continue through the upcoming difficulties, that is what Americans have always done.
The poor media has to show pictures of the people they despise with every fiber of their bodies doing real human service to their brothers and sisters. They have to show Christians for what they truly are and not the racist, sexist; homophobes the Three Pillars of Marxism (Academia, Media and DNC) has painted them to be. You see pictures of Whites rescuing blacks and Mexicans and blacks rescuing whites, without regard to color just like they have done for a hundred years. This is just hardworking Texans helping people in need and how it should be in every other situation and day to day activity. This is driving the media insane.
The Three Pillars hate showing people helping people without regard to their divisions. They hate showing the greatest melting pot in histoir and only want it to be divided and Americans at each others throats. They despise America and Americans like this in the monster trucks and redneck boats since these are the people who elected Trump. We see the magazines painting them as Nazis and bigots when there could be nothing further from the truth. These are the same real men who fought their way onto Omaha beach to free the world from Nazis while the Three Pillars were making Hitler their man of the year and adoring Stalin, Castro and Mao. Maybe they should put a Stars and Bars on one of the boats and get Antifa and BLM thugs to come down and riot?
What we are witnessing in Houston is the opposite of fascism which is America. What we are seeing from the President is the ability to manage and lead as well as the intelligence to get out of the way of a rescue effort we have never seen in our lifetime. We are seeing the beauty of the Christian Church using its massive volunteer network to do what it does best and that is to feed. We are and will be seeing truckloads of food and supplies for people who are suffering which are a thing of beauty to watch. We are seeing Gods people doing what they have been called to do without regard to reward either financial or personal. We are seeing what the Church and America is all about which the mediots just do not appreciate.
Glory has to go to God for everything he allows to happen both good and bad. It is easier to say when you are not losing your $300,000 house, but Texans know how to survive and thrive. They will help each other rebuild as will the Church so there will be so much good coming from this disaster outweighing the suffering. There will be people coming together like they never had before as friendships and bonds are made now and into the future. This will make them stronger as we have brother helping brother the way God meant it to be. If only America could use Houston as an example and take it to heart to come together as the melting pot we used to be, then we would move closer to the Shining City on the Hill.
Pray for Houston
I noticed that we haven’t heard much from Schumer or Pelosi during this disaster
I believe Harris County in which Houston is located went for Shillary.
“I believe Harris County in which Houston is located went for Shillary.”
Are you implying the flooding is their Punishment?
At least no looting in Houston, Texas. Much looting in New Orleans. I wonder why? (not)
Haven't you heard. They both blame this on Trump!!!
Nope. Noting the contradiction of the article claiming Houston to be anti government when more than half voted for big government and that the mayor is of the big government party. It’s more correct to say the volunteers are the anti government ones.
Who claimed Houston Dist 357 was anti-gummit?
The article is about Texas, but if you are looking to tear things apart you certainly can by editing the article to say what it never said.
Houston is a different situation altogether. There is so little dependence on gummit and much more reliance on the Independent Church so the solutions were quick and responsive to the need. You add to it the independence and self-reliance of the Texan and you have a completely different situation.
I hear it is tiring picking nits?
>>>I noticed that we havent heard much from Schumer or Pelosi during this disaster<<<
They were busy sewing their Wallets shut and figuring out what PORK they can add to the Disaster Recovery Legislation.
“never let a crisis go to waste”
It's your blog. If there is any confusion it falls upon you for being a poor writer.
Looks like picking nits makes you cranky too. I would suggest you just ignore my posts. They have the giant (Saturbray).
I suspect there is something else that bothers you more than your confusion this was not about Sheila Jackson Lee’s district.
Dude...your writing skills need some serious work.
But trust me...this is the last time I will remotely even look at your little blog.
Katrina represented a failure of government at all levels even before the hurricane made landfall. Aging levees failed, pumping stations that were supposed to keep sections of the city dry were not maintained, etc. It was very much a failure of the city's infrastructure.
It appears that Houston was not a "failure of infrastructure" at all. The city was simply overwhelmed with a volume of rainfall that exceeded the design standards used for any storm water management system.
Though the initiating causes were different (on that point you are correct), the solution was the same. And that solution wasn't initiated or even driven by government, but by people's individual decisions.
Each individual owner of boat/motor/trailer/tow vehicle made the decision to give freely of his time, and risk his material goods and even his life in the service of his neighbors.
And Bray is correct....those individual decisions ultimately had their roots in Christianity, even though in many cases the deciding individual might not have even been Christian.
