I’m really not sure what this Police department thought the outcome of this little joke would be, but I think that it will result in more addiction and deaths from overdose in their community.
While this one woman who has been arrested may get help now, it is more likely that she having been publicly ridiculed, will be another statistic. And surely the officers in the area now have lost the chance to have honest dialogue with those who are in addiction. Of course if their idea was to send the message that there is no hope for you if you are on meth or heroin, they have succeeded. Now who will call in if they or a loved one has overdosed and needs medical help. How about a family member who wants to see their loved one get help, now afraid the police will lie to them also and stick the offender in the prison system.
All I can say now is don’t be surprised Mr. Granite Shoals Police Officer when you are called out to rescue a puppy under some house and when you crawl out from under it you find someone has snatched the donuts from your dashboard.

The irony of a people who discard fertility in search of riches and comfort, but that would also condemn and find incomprehensible women and men sacrificing their sons and daughters in fire to a god in ancient times.
You’ve come a long way baby!
A simple explanation below.

The Easter Egg

Most children and families who color or hide Easter eggs as part of their Resurrection Sunday tradition have no knowledge of the origin of these traditions. Easter egg activities have become a part of Western culture. Many would be surprised and even dismayed to learn where the traditions originated.

“The egg was a sacred symbol among the Babylonians. They believed an old fable about an egg of wondrous size which was supposed to have fallen from heaven into the Euphrates River. From this marvelous egg—according to the ancient story—the Goddess Astarte (Easter) [Semiramis], was hatched. And so the egg came to symbolize the Goddess Easter.”[11]

The idea of a mystic egg spread from Babylon to many parts of the world.[12] In Rome, the mystic egg preceded processions in honor of the Mother Goddess Roman. The egg was part of the sacred ceremonies of the Mysteries of Bacchus. The Druids used the egg as their sacred emblem. In Northern Europe, China and Japan the eggs were colored for their sacred festivals.[13]
The egg was also a symbol of fertility; Easter (Semiramis) was the goddess of Fertility. The Easter egg is a symbol of the pagan Mother Goddess, and it even bears one of her names.…

The Church of Expected Grace


An article caught my eye today and so you know I gotta say something about it. People traveling through North Carolina are all up in arms. And what would be the reason for this? Their sin is being pointed out, that’s what. Well if you would ask them not many would supply that answer but for me it’s accurate.
Here is what is going on. In an effort to save lives on the highways, the State Police have begun a campaign to crack down on speeding which is a factor in a lot of highway deaths in North Carolina. Problem here is that many of those ticketed are complaining that they were only going a mile or two or five over the limit. What? Yes the police are ticketing people just over the limit. How dare they. you see most folks think that there is some sort of unwritten law that you can go up to five miles an hour over the limit and not be cited.
Absurd really that they would not let people do this, not! What is absurd is that we expect to be absolved of this minor infraction. What if we expected to be allowed a few points over on the breath test for drunk driving, or a few dollars over on what we spend without having to pay?
But, the real thing I am getting at is the spiritual connect. That’s right, the spiritual! And here it is. Right now. Put the torches down first. Alright, here we go. We, that’s me and you, have developed a theology that is “The Church of Expected Grace”. That’s right expected grace. We talk about not having a theology of cheap grace, and we talk a good talk. But in reality what we have made for ourselves is a god after our own desires. Yes where sin abounds grace abounds all the more, but are we planning on going a little outside the lines knowing there is grace? That’s where the trouble is, our planning and justifying beforehand the buffer zone that does not exist. The limit is the limit and if I call you out on it it will offend you, same as you calling me out offends me in what I believe is allowable. Take heed as I must in my lines that are a bit outside the lines, five, ten, fifteen, or one, its all sin. And that is what I mean by EXPECTED GRACE, as opposed to offered and accepted grace.
God help us to know the difference between




How can it be that we have bought into a theology that says we are better than others.
That is just what a teaching that says its alright to hold back trust after sin says. It says I didn’t do that and you did so I have a point to stand on. A right or reason to not restore the relationship completely. Be angry if you want, but we do this because why? how?
I’ll tell you how, we think we are good. Now, you say, Rob I don’t think I’m good, Jesus makes me good. As Paul Simon said in his 50 ways to leave your lover,” The problem is all inside your head”. We don’t want this man of sin revealed in us. In our head, our Golgotha, place of the skull, where our little mush of brain matter resides, Pride comes before a fall, be careful how you forgive. Do it like Jesus. Not like me, not for me, but for you.
Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
27And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. 28But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. 29But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. 30And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. 31But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
Jesus Prays at Gethsemane
32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.33And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy; 34And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch. 35And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36And he said, Abba, Father, all thingsare possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. 37And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour? 38Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. 39And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words. 40And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him. 41And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take yourrest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
Peter Denies Jesus
66And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest: 67And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth. 68But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew. 69And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them. 70And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.71But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak. 72And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
A popular teaching among Christians goes like this:
I forgive them, but I can’t forget.
I forgive them but I can’t trust them.
Just like Peter and all the disciples we have denied Christ, even after he saved us and taught us and came to live in us.
I think about Peter who was given the Keys :

Matthew 16:19 Context

17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. 21From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
Now this man who cursed the idea that he was one of Christs when he was restored still was the one. Forgiveness complete!
This is one of those hard teachings, many walk away over. Don’t let that be you, or me.
God gave everything to His Son, and Jesus gave everything to us, us who even after our calling and salvation find that sin in our flesh. But we have not had His “all things” removed. A real complete forgiveness requires all forgiveness, all restoration. Just me talkin’. About God talkin’.

Because I am selfish. That’s the short answer, but it goes further and deeper than that. I’ll try and explain it to you the best I know how. I’ve seen and read the experiences of many who have been diagnosed with deadly cancer. But they all seem to start at the moment of the person hearing the results that are conclusive. Me, I have a test that shows it may be, or may not be cancer, or whatever. So at this point it is just a maybe. But I need a definitive answer, I’m at that in-between point. You see, I’m selfish, it’s all about me. I was selfish the day I sprang forth from my mothers womb. In fact, as the story goes I came out crying and demanding to be breast fed immediately. And all my life this is how I have been. Even now I want to get this diagnosis so that when I die people will say good things about me. At funerals people generally aren’t speaking of all the bad things the deceased did. Oh, there are tons tons of great stories of the wonderful and funny things this person did. But right now, all people see is the fact that if I do have cancer , I deserve it. And in fact, that is right, I do deserve it. I deserve it because I have lived an awful selfish life. I have used and abused all that God and the people around me have given to me. Selfish is what I am.
Self-ish is what I am. interesting?
Selfish is how I live, it’s all about me, and what the flesh desires. So even at this moment I’m thinking about me, and how this could help my image. You know the old saying,” Image is everything”, interesting? You really don’t have to tell me what an awful person I have been. I know it well. This is one thing God has allowed me the pleasure of having a deep revelation of. Despite His love, grace, and mercy, I continue to be selfish, to desire the things of the flesh. But this will not surprise those around me, they know how I’ve been, struggling with sin, and sins tempting. It was almost a freeing experience to see the possibility of a soon removal from this world. All my problems, struggles, pains, gone in an instant. Even here at this point I’m thinking about me. How did I ever get this far along in life with this way of living.
You see, I have no excuse. None. This life, all in Gods plan somehow, was given and redeemed by Him who is Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer. This awesome, magnificent, God, who is completely different from anything we know, outside of time,space, and matter. This God, called me. He called me. Me? Selfish me.
Self ish, Brought Satan down, brought mankind down, and brought me down. Selfishness is pride. It says, “why not?” “I deserve it”, “After all you, are the most important person to you”.
See, Satan was all about himself. And me, I tend toward being about me. Satan’s temptations are the prideful thoughts and actions that he has. The lust of the flesh the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. That’s how he comes at you, with a reasonable offer. 1 John 2.
See how he works in these verses.
Genesis Chapter 3
1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this thatthou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
16Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
Same in the Garden, and Jesus in the wilderness, and us now. Mt. 4 I fall for somethings more than others. And I deserve the worst. But the amazing thing about salvation is that is given to the undeserving.
While we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwelleth no good thing.
SELF is always about the FLESH and I
Anyway the end of the story is this. If I happen to have cancer or leukemia or one of those things and pass from this earth. My family would be deserving of help, and millions of others would also. So help them if you feel led, their position is based on my bad decisions, but I hope that you would consider helping someone who is undeserving of it. Today and from now on I want to help someone undeserving like Jesus did for me. And don’t tell any stories about what a wonderful Christian I was, or all the great things that I did for others or funny stories of my life. Just say He was undeserving but Christ died for him and despite all his struggles it is in Christ alone he put his trust.
As I get older the only verse in the Bible that I question is 1 Timothy 1:15 where Paul says he is the chief sinners. And the reason being, I know myself,,,and that self is selfish, and even in this I want the distinction.
and one more out of the word “selfish”
Christ suffered in :
