Rambo goes to Burma to rescue Christian missionaries

I saw Stallone’s Rambo movie, I think volume 3, where he goes to Burma. It was phenomenal. The film was about a former Vietnam commando living in Thailand who was approached by Christian missionaries desiring to make a difference in war-torn Burma. After persuading “Rambo” to take them over to Burma by boat, all hell breaks loose and the missionaries get a taste of reality when they meet the Burmese military junta.

Rambo and a group of mercenaries saved the day, but not before some intense combat that left nearly all the missionaries dead.

Great film. “Die for something or live for nothing!”

Islam and Muslim Protests in London, UK, and Europe – Impotence, Intolerance, and Violence

I received an email this morning picturing Muslims protesting on the streets of London, England with anger in their hearts, hatred in their mouths, and slogans of violence on signs in their hands. Is this the heart of God? I think not.
Among the disheartening images I saw, the unforgettable words on the signs read:
“Europe you will pay. Demolition is on its way.”
“Europe you will pay. Your extermination is on its way.”
“Butch those who mock Islam.”
“Europe is the cancer. Islam is the answer.”
“Islam will dominate the world.”
“Europe take some lessons from 9/11.”
“Europe you will pay. Your 9/11 is on its way.”
“Be prepared for the real holocaust.”
“Massacre those who insult Islam.”
“Exterminate those who insult Islam.”
“Behead those who insult Islam.”
“Slay those who insult Islam.”
They who seek to defend their religion with violence prove to the world that God is not in it. Cannot God defend Himself without human help? I think so. Yet when God is not in a man-made religion, religious followers must arise to kill, compel, and constrain people to obey its rigid and frigid tenets.  
God is love and will defend the glory of His Name! 
 
Have you forgotten “Thou shalt not take the Lord’s name in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless” (Exodus 20:7).  Muslims, Americans, Christians, and anyone who advocates killing in God’s name does not know the Lord (John 16:1-3). God Himself will uphold the honor of His name and judge those who advocate killing in His holy Name. God is a life giver, not a killer.
Jesus did not come to destroy lives, but to save lives (John 3:17).
They who kill innocent blood, there blood will be shed (Genesis 9:6).
 
What we tolerate will dominate. If the British permit this type of behavior on their streets, it will persist until they become fed up and swiftly deal with these evildoers.  Until the British awake to the backsliddeness of their hearts and destitute spiritual condition, Islamic fundamentalism and protests such as this on their streets must continue to intensify to get their attention. Spiritual battles require spiritual wisdom, power, love, and discipline to win (see 2 Corinthians 10:3-6).
 
The British must awake, arise, and boldly confront evil lest they be overtaken by it!
As for your remarks about political candidates, the hope of America and the world is not in elections but in Jesus Christ and His church.  Political candidates only serve to reveal the spiritual state of the people who elect them.

Relational Expert and Minister Celebrated by Playboy Radio – What Every Nympho Needs!

Relational Expert and Minister Paul F. Davis was embraced by Playboy Radio’s Afternoon Advice host Tiffany Grannath and several callers who enjoyed speaking to the author of Breakthrough for a Broken Heart and Adultery: 101 Reasons Not to Cheat. Davis answered questions from callers who had been cheated on themselves and were seeking wisdom as to what to do in their relationship.

 

Relational Expert and Love Coach Paul F. Davis was interviewed by Playboy Radio’s Tiffany Grannath about cheating, adultery, sexual sobriety, cultivating true love, and sustaining a love that lasts a lifetime.

 

Davis is the author of Are You Ready For True Love, which assesses relational compatibility & responsibility. “Discern between relational fits, misfits, and counterfeits. If a man tells a woman she’s beautiful, she will overlook most of his other lies. Courtship is that period during which the female decides whether or not she can do any better. Don’t get into the sea of matrimony on a wave of enthusiasm. Learn a lot before tying the knot. Beyond love at first sight, get insight.”

Courtship is that period during which the female decides whether or not she can do any better. Don’t get into the sea of matrimony on a wave of enthusiasm. Learn a lot before tying the knot. Beyond love at first sight, get insight.

 

Paul himself lived through an adulterous affair in which he went through a personal ground zero (like where he worked in NYC the first week of 9/11), after which he wrote his book Breakthrough for a Broken Heart to empower people to overcome their disappointments and blossom into their dreams.

 

Davis a worldwide professional speaker has traveled to over 50 countries and 6 continents across the globe comforting and uplifitng humanity. Paul’s message of hope transcends barriers that divide and builds bridges among all peoples. Paul’s organization Dream-Maker Ministries builds dreams, humorously challenges presumptions, transcends limitations, and facilitates transformation.

 

As a purpose coach Davis transforms individuals and organizations. Relationally speaking, the divorce Davis went through due to adultery, enabled him to pull from the mess a mighty message to liberate humanity. Paul’s book Adultery: 101 Reasons Not to Cheat he originally wrote for himself as a traveling man to keep the fear of God in his own heart and remind himself of the repercussions of wrong doing. Little did Paul know he’d be the victim of an adulterous affair himself when his ex-wife dropped the bomb on him.

 

Paul wrote a sequel to the Adultery 101 book titled Stop Lusting & Start Living, a sexual recovery plan which he says every nympho needs. Overcoming and harnessing fleshly bodily appetites that seek to rule and enslave us requires spiritual strength. Only as you build up the spirit within can you govern your bodily appetites and reign over unruly fleshly cravings screaming for immediate gratification.

 

Desperate housewives, strippers, playboys, womanizers, and the hormonally challenged driven by lust are restlessly looking for something and someone to satisfy them. Society is seeking answers to tame their gremlins and advice to achieve self-mastery. Will our consumeristic society ever again be content and committed relationally?

 

Faith, hope, and love alone anchor the heart and soul. Cheating thwarts the family structure and demoralizes precious children who look to Mommy and Daddy for moral guidance and direction. What then will divorced men and women give to their children? Hopelessness, depression, loneliness, lies, deceit, anger, fear, distrust, unfaithfulness, and betrayal? Are these values we want to teach our children? If not, somehow we must be strengthened to overcome seduction’s temptation.

 

How shall men keep the womanizer from stealing their wife? Stop betrayal and infidelity early on by harnessing your flesh before the hottie walks by. Get some self-help and purpose in your heart to uphold and fight for your marriage.

 

Though our bodies want food, sleep, and sex — giving yourself over fully without restraint to your bodily appetites will both destroy your soul and your marriage. The flesh doesn’t care about a wedding ring or marital vows. Therefore we must take dominion over ourselves and make our flesh obey.

 

Indeed sex is wonderful and a gift from God, but to be a blessing it must be kept within its proper context and not overly exalted. Sex is not love, neither can it satisfy a yearning soul. The flesh is but one of three facets of our person and has the least depth of the three. We are spiritual beings who have a mind and live in a body, says Paul. Therefore to overcome the outward man, we must first build up the inner man by the spirit.

 

The supernatural flow and miraculous dimension to Paul’s ministry and messages impart an unusual strength to hearts and minds, forfifying people to live victoriously spirit, mind, and body!

Spike Lee in Cannes Accuses Clint Eastwood of White Washing World War 2

*During a press conference in Cannes on Tuesday, filmmaker Spike Lee took director Clint Eastwood to task for failing to include a single African American soldier in his two recent WWII-themed films. Although hundreds of blacks fought in the battle for the Japanese island of Iwo Jima in 1945, none were present in Eastwood’s two movies about the historic struggle, “Flags Of Our Fathers” and “Letters From Iwo Jima.”

Perhaps getting some color in the White House will be good for America. Certainly having a black man in the White House will be good for the world who presently hate the United States according to Donad Trump who spoke candidly on the Big Idea about the failures of the Bush administration.

OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Dr Oz and Jonathon Grayson

I watched Oprah last night with my wife and enjoyed seeing the interventions done by Dr. Oz and Jonathon Grayson for people struggling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I think we all know someone who struggles with something like this or manifests these irrational behavioral tendencies.

The common thread I heard throughout every story and conversation with those struggling with OCD was fear. They were all battling fear of some sort and deep paranoia. They developed various phobias based around their erroneous beliefs, which Jonathon and Dr. Oz challenged by making them confront their fears.

Exposure and response as it is commonly referred to in psychology was the methodology used to treat these precious souls. Some of the things they made them do were a bit odd and gross to watch, like putting their hands on the floor and toilet seats (after which they were told to lick their hands).

Oz and Grayson took a 2 mile walk through the streets of Philadelphia to wear down the participants’ defenses and get them to open up. After the long walk they stopped in a back alley with some rubbish bins, one particularly which smelled like puke, old sour food, and feces. After some coaching and prodding, all participants put their hands in the slimy rubbish and licked them afterward, some putting their dirty hands through their hair.

All of this was to get the people to realize they weren’t going to die if they did what they most feared. I must say however seeing Dr. Oz putting his hands on a toilet seat and licking them afterward was terribly disgusting. My wife who watches Oprah every day was eating her dinner during the program. I couldn’t resist saying, “Oh baby, maybe you should get free from your OCD (control freak) by licking the toilet seat and drinking some toilet water.” (I know I’m bad. She finished her meal unabated.)

I was very impressed with the intervention, but probably would not have done the gross methods myself to achieve the same results. Dealing with the roots and origins of the phobia is crucial.

One African American mother confessed when a loved one died years ago she felt as if it was her fault. This erroneous belief opened the door to fear as she falsely interpreted the event. Thereafter she (and another white mother on the show with similar circumstances) began to shelter their children and freak out about every little thing as a perverse protective mechanism. What the women failed to realize was in actuality they weren’t protecting their kids as much as they were harming them by imparting a spirit of fear and thereby removing them from life itself.

At the beginning all participants were initially reminded of the pain, loss of loved ones, alienation of friends, career loss, and financial hardships caused by their phobias. This helped each commit to the coaching and unique methods used to provide them their breakthrough.

After the intervention the people all looked way better, more free, present, and regained the glow in their countenance. One gentleman who always kept one hand in his pocket to stay germ free, was outdoors with both hands out, talking about playing in the dirt and having fun. He regained himself and thereby his life.

Jonathon Grayson occasionally throughout the segment called and referred to the fear everyone was struggling with as a “monster” saying: “When you run from this monster it follows you.” He later also called it a “devil” and encouraged one woman as she sought to pray to God for power to overcome it.

I was blessed to hear the one clean freak mom (white with short curly hair – sorry I don’t remember her name) testify to her breakthrough of taking her children out for ice-cream after the intervention. Her daughter wore a white shirt and got ice-cream all over it, but mom didn’t obsess or freak out. Upon leaving the restaurant she left without worrying about tidying up, pushing in the chairs, or agonizing over anything. A personal breakthrough for her!

Dr. Oz at the conclusion of the show summed up some key principles to freedom. “Surrender, get free from those attachments.”

As we are fully present and awake to our own past dysfunction, we can boldly deal with it and get the breakthroughs we deserve to live freely and be whole.

Truly what we resist does persist. Face your fears and live free!

Breaking Down Walls – Lessons From 11-9 For A Post 9-11 Era

The Berlin Wall, known in the Soviet Union and in the German Democratic Republic as the “Anti-Fascist Protective Rampart,” was a separation barrier between West Berlin and East Germany (the German Democratic Republic), which closed the border between East and West Berlin for 28 years. Construction on the wall began on August 13, 1961, and it was dismantled in the weeks following November 9, 1989. The Berlin Wall was the most prominent part of the inner German border and an iconic symbol of the Cold War.

Conceived by the East German administration of Walter Ulbricht and approved by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, it was built during the post-World War II period of divided Germany, in an effort to stop the drain of labour and economic output associated with the daily migration of huge numbers of professionals and skilled workers from East to West Berlin, and the attendant defections, which hurt the Communist bloc economically and politically.

The Wall was successful at decreasing emigration (escapes – “Republikflucht” in German) from 2.5 million between 1949 and 1962 to 5,000 between 1962 and 1989.[2] However, it was a propaganda disaster for East Germany and the Communist bloc. It became a key symbol of what Western powers regarded as Communist tyranny, particularly after the high-profile shootings of would-be defectors.

Political liberalization in the late 1980s, associated with the decline of the Soviet Union, led East Germany to relax border restrictions, culminating in mass demonstrations and the fall of the East German government.

On November 9, 1989, the government announced that crossing of the border would be permitted. Masses of East Germans approached and then crossed the wall, and were joined by crowds of West Germans in a celebratory atmosphere. Over the next few weeks parts of the wall were chipped away by a euphoric public and by souvenir hunters; it was later removed using industrial equipment.

How can we daily chip away at and break down walls in a post 9/11 era?

1. Refuse to be gripped and governed by fear.
Fear is self-centered revolving around self-preservation. Fear has torment and is paralyzing. Fear is interest paid in advance on something you most likely will never own. It has been said ninety percent of our fears never occur. Therefore the only thing to fear is fear itself. Be bold, courageous, and fearless!

2. Believe the best about people, until they prove otherwise.
People should be innocent until proven guilty. Seek to prove people worthy, rather than looking for guilt. There is good in all of us that needs to be affirmed and recognized. Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. Before you entertain and listen to the bad about a person, ask to hear about the good.

3. Love and accept people unconditionally.
The Creator and universe loves and accepts us unconditionally as human beings. Do likewise. Create a culture of love and acceptance. As you do a community to which others want to belong will be created. Give people hope to belong, believe, and become.

4. Be hopeful and expect the best from people.
When you show a positive expectation toward people, you cause them to want to live up to your expectations. It is the force of faith in operation pulling people higher. Speak to and address people’s potential. Enlarge their vision and horizon paving the way for them to step into it.

5. Don’t be paralyzed by presumption and erroneous predispositions.
Beware of propaganda. Don’t believe everything the media and people tell you. Most often they are misinformed or only partially telling the entire story. Do your homework before wholly embracing something as gospel truth.

6. Investigate and seek the truth.
You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.  Not everything you hear is worth listening to. Truth must be tested and examined over time. Lies last but for a moment. The truth however is timeless and always does endure. Hold to the truth and don’t sell out to compromise.

7. Celebrate and honor all peoples.
As you live and let live, you shall liberate people. Celebrating and honoring people is the first way we bond with them. Before we can together build, we must first bond. Let the bonds of brotherhood grow, increase, and be strengthened.

8. Forgive and live.
We all make mistakes. Give people another chance. We as individuals and nations learn over time. For some it takes more time than for others to catch on. As we forgive, we free ourselves from carrying hostility and hate within our hearts. When we forgive we live and allow others to do the same.

9. Be patient, peaceful, and progressive.

Change doesn’t happen overnight. It is progressive and ongoing. Strive to be patient with people and nations as we all evolve. People make changes in an atmosphere of love. Russia’s Gorbachev brought down the wall because of President Reagan’s charm and heartfelt appeal. Reagan never threatened Gorbachev with war if he didn’t obey.

Love is patient and kind. Patience and a peaceful disposition often precedes progress. Nobody likes to be pushed. Patience tenderly and purposefully pulls people by their heart strings forward progressively.

10. Let dialogue and diplomacy replace hostility.
National dictators often just want to be recognized on the global scene and acknowledged. By welcoming everyone to the table to talk, we can diffuse much hostility and build bridges internationally. Nobody every died during a discussion. Dialogue and diplomacy enables us to go deeper to the real root issue motivating a person.

Let us all continue to break down walls between us so we can be a global community interconnected with heartfelt understanding and compassion.
