EXCELLENT!

If we make the choice to walk out the door
and let all we have become nothing more —

can we look at ourselves
and resist this moment in time together?

It’s not impossible
that we can end this war
.

Just let your heart explode;
It’s not to late for a miracle!

No more fighting
No more crying
No more hurting
No…
[?]
No more lying

No more sighing
I’m still trying
Arms wide open

End this war

The Didache (70-100 AD): Reconciliation was required to attend early church meetings! "Let no one who is at odds with his fellow come together with you, until they be reconciled, that your sacrifice may not be profaned."

[updated 4/11/10; originally posted on 12/20/09]

This is one of the writings of “the early Christian fathers” that I especially liked. It’s big on unity!

It’s interesting to compare what it says to what is practiced in today’s ‘churches.’ I’m not aware of even one ‘church’ that requires reconciliation…. And how many pastors, themselves, have fully reconciled…?

The Didache also has a “way of death” list that is similar to Paul’s who-does-not-go-to-heaven list in Galatians 5.

It also interesting that it falls within the biblical teaching of appointing elders in 1 Timothy and Titus. This contradicts Catholic apostolic succession and papal supremacy teaching, which I’m currently studying.

I also include their 2-day fasting standard to challenge especially myself, again.

Good stuff here. The The Didache didn’t make the canon, the cut to be in the Bible, but it clearly deserves a careful look.

Military BOOT CAMP kills the conscience so soldiers can do evil without being convicted in their hearts

The Boot-Camp Factor:
The Hate & Anger Factory
Where Men are Programmed to Kill
and Then Become Our Dads?!!
Our Pastors?!!!

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from The Alex Jones Show, 11/24/09 (part 3 video, below)

“The word, ‘conscience’con means with; science means knowledge — withknowledge con-science.

Every time we lie or steal or lust or get angry or whatever without cause, we know it’s wrong. We know in our hearts it’s wrong. And that’s why no man will be with an excuse on the day they die and they stand before God, they can’t say: “Oh God, I’m so sorry. I didn’t know it was wrong to lie. I didn’t know it was wrong to steal. I didn’t know it was wrong to do these things.

No, we know right from wrong. Even in the deepest, darkest jungles of Africa, people inherently know it’s wrong to sleep with another man’s wife, it’s wrong to steal from your neighbor, it’s wrong to kill somebody.

In fact, people that live in a cannibalistic society have to be taught, they have to be brainwashed.

Same thing we do with our soldiers, right? We train them; we send them to boot camp, and we take out, we kill the conscience — Cremation of Care, if you will? We kill the conscience so that then they can do the things that evil men do without having to be convicted by their conscience.

Your conscience is a good thing. And you ought to listen to it more often. If everybody would, maybe they’d be a little kinder….”

[Non-OSAS Song] John Mellencamp: "Walk Tall"

“Walk Tall”

Written by John Mellencamp

The simple minded
And the uninformed
Can be easily led astray

And those that cannot connect the dots
Hey look the other way
People believe what they want to believe
When it makes no sense at all
So be careful of those killing in Jesus’ name
He don’t believe in killing at all …

Somewhere out in the distance
Is the death of you and me
Even though we don’t think of it much
It’s still out there for us to see
If you treat life like a ballroom fight
You’ll die stinking of gin
No drunkards allowed in heaven
No sinners will get in

Walk tall (keep on walking, keep on talking)
Through this world

Ron Paul’s Christlike Attitude: Love, Peace & Hope – No *Initiation* of Aggression!

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from Ron Paul on the Glenn Beck show (CNN), 12/17/07.
10-term, Republican, Congressman Ron Paul:

I am committed to nonviolence – no initiation of aggression. …
I believe in political change coming about in the mode of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, through nonviolence. I happen to believe that we should practice these principles both domestically against individuals, as well as other countries.
This is the reason I don’t use aggression against other countries to bring about changes. I don’t ever want to initiate aggression. This is what is in our Constitution.
…our supporters have coined the words “LOVE” in the ‘REVOLUTION’ – and “peace” and “hope.”

Greg Boyd: In the kingdom of God, we are not allowed to have any enemies. All body-bags are equally tragic.

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from:

4/25/2004 – The Difference Between the Two Kingdoms, Greg Boyd – sermon length 43:43
The kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world are two very separate things. One uses the sword (power over) to influence people; the other uses love (power under). To understand this distinction is much easier than letting it affect the way we live. Greg continued to discuss the differences between these kingdoms and how we are to live within the distinction.

“It’s normal for the kingdom of the world to consider the boys in body-bags on our side more important than the boys in body-bags on their side. But from a kingdom of God perspective, we would consider all body-bags to be equally tragic.
The kingdom of the world is always involved in conflict, because it’s a power-over kingdom, and if you’re getting in the way of my power-over we’ll have to go to war over this. And usually in the kingdom of the world you demonize your enemies to rally up power against them.
But in the kingdom of God, we are not allowed to have any enemies. We’re forbidden to have enemies of flesh and blood. The ones who think that they are our enemies, we are commanded to love them, to serve them, to lay down our life for them.
While the kingdom of the world is about conflict, the kingdom of God is about reconciliation.”

Ron Paul: Jesus is the Prince of PEACE, Not Preemptive War

From: The New York Times, July 22, 2007

There is something homespun about Paul, reminiscent of “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” …
Paul grew up in the western Pennsylvania town of Green Tree. His father, the son of a German immigrant, ran a small dairy company. Sports were big around there — one of the customers on the milk route Paul worked as a teenager was the retired baseball Hall of Famer Honus Wagner — and Paul was a terrific athlete, winning a state track meet in the 220 and excelling at football and baseball. But knee injuries had ended his sports career by the time he went off to Gettysburg College in 1953. After medical school at Duke, Paul joined the Air Force, where he served as a flight surgeon, tending to the ear, nose and throat ailments of pilots, and traveling to Iran, Ethiopia and elsewhere. “I recall doing a lot of physicals on Army warrant officers who wanted to become helicopter pilots and go to Vietnam,” he told me. “They were gung-ho. I’ve often thought about how many of those people never came back.”
Paul is given to mulling things over morally. His family was pious and Lutheran; two of his brothers became ministers. Paul’s five children were baptized in the Episcopal church, but he now attends a Baptist one. He doesn’t travel alone with women and once dressed down an aide for using the expression “red-light district” in front of a female colleague. As a young man, though, he did not protest the Vietnam War, which he now calls “totally unnecessary” and “illegal.” Much later, after the United States invaded Iraq in 2003, he began reading St. Augustine. “I was annoyed by the evangelicals’ being so supportive of pre-emptive war, which seems to contradict everything that I was taught as a Christian,” he recalls. “The religion is based on somebody who’s referred to as the Prince of Peace.”

MacArthur: The Prostitution of Christianity–”My kingdom is not of this world”

CNN LARRY KING LIVE

“God’s Warriors”: Fighters For Faith

Aired August 20, 2007 – 21:00 ET
[…]
[Larry] KING: Is there a danger in some aspects of fundamental Christianity?
[John] MACARTHUR: No, I don’t think there’s any danger in it. I think there’s a danger in the prostitution of Christianity. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.”
Jesus said to Peter, “Put away your sword.”
There’s nothing in Christianity that calls for any kind of dominant power, national power, government power, takeover, war, none at all. This is about a personal relationship with god through faith in the lord Jesus Christ.
KING: But so many of the fundamentalist Christians are what might be called political hawks, aren’t they?
MACARTHUR: They are. And that is not, in my judgment, a true representation of biblical Christianity.
