The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ My Brother’s Keeper?

“That Something MUST Be Said Or Done”

It is possible to have such sympathy with our fellowmen as to be guilty of red-handed rebellion against God. Enthusiasm for humanity as it is, is quite a different thing from the enthusiasm for the saints which the Bible reveals, namely, enthusiasm for readjusted humanity. ~ Oswald Chambers, Sin Seen in Unselfishness

If ever there were two more perfect complementary quotes in this world than the two that book-end this statement…well…they simply have not been written or spoken yet!

If you forced me to distill everything that is wrong with this culture down to one word, to find one word that covered almost every sin in one fell swoop, it would be cowardice. I look at western civilization and I see cowardice EVERYWHERE. It is in the eyes and hearts of every adult. Its stench permeates everything. ~ Ann Barnhardt, When Prudence Truly Dictates That Something MUST Be Said Or Done…

“Am I my brother’s keeper?” The world’s first murderer’s response to God’s questioning him on the whereabouts of his brother Abel. These words that have been haunting me lately, especially over the course of these past four years, have brought a new and more chilling ring to my ear. So much so in fact, that back in June, my partner and I formed a county-wide neighborhood-watch program as a way of first and foremost, affirming that we are as God made us to be, our brother’s keeper. But secondly, and at the very heart and source of the chill, the realization of the replay of the worlds very first murder interrogation happening today…and knowing who the Cains are. They are everywhere. Ann was hot on their trail 8 years ago…

“I recently attended a conference about Catholic ethics, and toward the end discussion opened up a bit. An upper-middle class suburban woman (an uber Neo-con Kathy) raised her hand and complained that her 13 year old daughter persistently wanted to dress like Kim Kardashian, I believe the word ”whore” was used, as the daughter has been regularly watching the Kardashian filth on TV and wants to be just like Kim Kardashian, who is, for those of you who do not know, a sociopathic moral degenerate and de facto prostitute and porn star, who is also teetering on the precipice of being mentally retarded.

I tend to keep fairly quiet in venues such as this. If I am not ”the speaker” then it is my job to listen, but since discussion had opened up, I did lean forward and asked this woman why she allowed cable TV into her home in the first place, and why she allowed her daughter to watch evil filth. Some response was made to the effect, ”Well, I can’t control . . . “ at which point I cut her off and told her that she could call and cancel the cable feed this afternoon, at which she bristled and snarled back at me, ”I’m not going to have this discussion. I’M NOT GOING TO LIVE IN A BUBBLE.”

Understand, this woman had no clue who I was, so the bristling and snarling was not because she was intimidated by me – it was an organic response to the thought of taking away her precious Marxist-Sodomite agitporn delivery vector – her precious teevee. She then got up and left.

Had I gone blowtorch on this woman, here is what I would have said”:  Read the rest HERE.

Back to the chill and the neighborhood-watch formation. Necessity is the mother of invention… BECAUSE of who the Cains are and what they have allowed…because of the cowardice Ann exposes. Cowardice is a thousand times worse than cancer, in my own personal opinion, for one very simple reason. Cancer may kill the body, but cowardice kills the soul. The former is temporary. The latter is forever. Nothing on this earth can see and smell cowardice as easy and eagerly as the Wolf that “prowls, seeking to devour.” NBA Lebron James and NFL Drew Brees, who was literally forced to shame his own family by making a public apology for his patriotism, both play for the Chinese Communist Party…arguably the biggest wolf of them all.

What is there to protect the sheep from the wolf if not the shepherd? Was it not the shepherd’s job to protect them from the teevee? So they were scattered because there was no shepherd; and they became food for all the beasts of the field when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and on every high hill; yes, My flock was scattered over the whole face of the earth, and no one was seeking or searching for them.” ~ Ezekiel 34:5-6

The compromised shepherds are indifferent to the neighborhood watchman“So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.” ~ Ezekiel 33:7-9…and conspicuously quiet on “Patriot Day”. Save a precious few…

Good evening, my dear brethren in Christ!  Tomorrow, September 11, 2020, is the 19th anniversary of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks which took place that day in New York City, Pennsylvania and in Washington DC – attacks, in fact, against our entire Nation and against all that we as Americans hold to be true and sacred, regardless of our varied ethnic and cultural backgrounds! We again thoughtfully and prayerfully remember all the precious lives that were taken on that tragic day, along with all those who as a result of that fateful day subsequently passed on or continue to battle its health related consequences – not to speak of the inflicted and ongoing emotional trauma due to the loss of both beloved family members and friends! All those who died, all of the first responders, all those who tended to the wounded, and all of the assisting volunteers are forever to be gratefully recognized as heroes! As we remember 9/11/01, however,  our beloved Nation is presently under another evil, deliberately orchestrated and well-funded attack which vows to undo the legitimate rule of law and to dismantle established constitutional government for all American citizens, regardless of who we are! We as fellow Americans of all backgrounds must stand together against the lawlessness, anarchy and violence that right now plagues and increasingly threatens the peace and safety of us all! While serious and unresolved problems in our Nation must be honestly addressed and corrected, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would never have sanctioned what is presently going on in the name of peaceful protest! Dr. King’s goal was not to ruin but to reconcile and to restore by the means of justice, godliness and respect, at a time in America when it was most difficult to say the least! And he paid the supreme price for it in 1968 when he was assassinated! He nevertheless set a spiritual and social example that lives on and which we must now urgently follow – not a pattern of incited violence and of street terrorism by imported seditionists who are just adding insult to injury in their wave of disruptive and counterproductive destruction! We as Christians from all denominational and ethnic backgrounds must lock our hearts and hands together in our love for God first, for one another, and for the Nation to which we all belong – calling upon Him in humble repentance to forgive our sins and to heal our Land!  On this special day of remembrance, we pray for Almighty God to stay the course of evil and to spare us the judgment that we deserve! PRAY FOR AMERICA – for violence to cease, and for a new and desperately needed season of mutual respect, justice and genuine unity to reign!  We must turn to the Lord, not away from Him! This we sincerely pray for – in this critical hour and in the love of Christ! ~ Pastor Good Shepherd

As surely as God warned Cain then…The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.” ~ Genesis 4:6-7…He is warning them now. It is the time to choose. You are either with We as Christians from all denominational and ethnic backgrounds must lock our hearts and hands together in our love for God first, for one another, and for the Nation to which we all belong, or…

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. ~ John 8:44

If anyone asks you for a description of my true Brother’s Keeper, simply refer them to Flight 93:

“Flight 93”

by Leslie Fish

She took off from Newark on a warm autumn day,                                              With forty-five travelers and crew.
They all were unarmed at the will of the law;
Security passed them all through.
An hour into flight-time, four Arabs jumped up —
Two Ahmeds, Ziad and Sa’eed —
Announced a hijacking and waved knives around
(Razorblades, box-knives and steak-knives they’d found),
And a box that they swore was a bomb up and down;
They thought that was all they would need.                                                                           

Flight 93 no more will fly.
Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down.

CeeCee the stewardess had a cell-phone,
And called up her husband to say:
“The plane has been hijacked. We’ll do as we’re trained;
Be quiet and humbly obey.
They’ll dicker for money or some social cause.
The government surely will pay.
They’ll put us out somewhere and leave with their score,
Or maybe police will come catch them and more.
That’s always the way this has been done before.
With luck, I’ll be home in a day.”

Flight 93 no more will fly.
Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down.

Next was Mark Bingham, who had a phone too,
And used it to call up his Mom.
He said they’d been hijacked by “three foreign men”
Who had knives and said they had a bomb.
But some of the passengers plotted, he said,
To take back the plane as it flew.
“But first tell me, Mom, is it true what they say?
That three other airplanes were hijacked today,
Flown straight into buildings and blew them away?”
His mother cried, and said: “It’s true.”
Flight 93 no more will fly.
Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down.

Jeremy Glick called his wife on the phone,
And told of the bomb and the knives.
He said: “If these stories we’re hearing are true,
We might as well fight for our lives.”
His wife told him: “Yes, the World Trade Center’s hit,
And maybe the Pentagon too.”
He left the phone hanging, then came back and said:
“We’ve nothing to fight with, and may wind up dead,
But we’ve voted to stand up and fight them instead,
And we might keep them from getting through.”

Flight 93 no more will fly.
Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down.

Thomas Burnett phoned his wife several times,
Reporting the course of the fight.
He said: “One man’s been stabbed, and we can’t reach the cockpit,
But somehow we’ll alter the flight.
We’ve guessed that the target is likely the White House,
And if we fail, we’ll surely die.
We’ve nothing to fight with except our bare hands,
But we’ll keep on trying until the plane lands
One way or the other. We’ve taken our stand.
My darling, I love you. Goodbye.”

Flight 93 no more will fly.                                                                                                         Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down.

Jason the pilot could hear the whole tale.
He’d signaled as well as he could.
He saw that the terrorists still held the cockpit —
And one way to stop them for good.
He watched while the passengers battled and died,
And knew that no help would be found.
The guard was distracted. Just one chance to win.
There’s one case where suicide isn’t a sin.
He weighed all his chances. He said: “Auger in!”
And drove the ship into the ground.

Flight 93 no more will fly.
Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down.

Flight 93 hit the ground at full speed,
And no one aboard her survives.
But the White House still stands, and a few thousand folks
Can thank those aboard for their lives.
There’s no guarantee, when the Bad Guys come in,
That they won’t kill you all to a man.
So when some fanatics are out to have fun,
There’s nowhere to hide and there’s nowhere to run.
Then pray that the law lets you carry a gun,
But fight back however you can.

Flight 93 no more will fly.
Dead on the ground or dead in the sky:
You might not survive, but at least you can try.
Stand up and bring the ship down.

    Men are driven by one of two engines: the natural spirit of fear by default, or the supernatural spirit of faith, by choice.

    • Peggy Cirillo says:

      Well said Bill. The passengers of Flight 93 probably never thought they would ever come face to face with being that kind of a hero. Most of us don’t. We simply live our lives as our faith dictates. To some, the Spirit assigns the larger tasks and to others the smaller, more unnoticed tasks. In whatever group we are “assigned” the Fruits of the Spirit should be evident (kindness etc) As Chip wisely and correctly pointed out We Are Our Brothers’ Keeper. I always struggle with that one since it involves judgment. For me, it requires lots of prayerful consideration.The word being thrown around social media these days is “sheep”, as in “a weak follower”. My viewpoint is most, if not all, people would take a bullet for their family. Would they be considered “sheepishly weak”? Probably not. They would be heroes. Those who would die for their faith would also be heroes but through the narrow eyes of some with staunch opposing political beliefs are considered sheep. I’ve taken up so much of your time. Your words of Wisdom are appreciated, which, of course, i wouldnt have seen if it weren’t for Chip’s work each and every week. He’s one of those people who has been assigned the larger tasks in life and God bless him for that.

    Hmm…I’m stealing that one! (with your blessing of course) 🙂
