The REAL and ONLY way to improve your life

I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)

CORRECTION: I made one error, which I know of, when I posted the 60 question civic test. Question number 13 should have read Andrew Johnson. I mistakenly posted the name as Andrew Jackson which, of course, makes a different for determining the correct answer. The post has been changed to now read correctly as Andrew Johnson.

I presently have a subscription to U.S. News and World Report. If I remember correctly, it cost $10 for 26 issues. I won’t be renewing the subscription. I received my December 31, 2007-January 7, 2008 issue on December 24, 2007. The front page story is “50 Ways to Improve Your Life in 2008.” It begins on page 37. (Page 36 if you count the nifty art work. The art work does take up a page.)

The fifty ways as listed on page 37:

“1) Try open-water swimming.
02) Cut back on corn. (I’m sure Illinois farmers will appreciate this one.—my addition)
03) Don’t be afraid to get dirty.
04) Turn work into your workout.
05) Waltz your way to better fitness.
06) Detox your household cleaning products.
07) Bite into dark chocolate.
08) Give a healthcare gift card.
09) Dump your prescription pills safely. (What prescription pills? Ok, I forgot we are a drug medicated society. It’s advertised every day on TV. Anyone have any Viagra?—my addition)
10) Get screened for an STD. (Don’t have intercourse unless you are married and then ONLY with your (male-female only) spouse and neither of you will need this improvement. What is Barack Obama telling us when he publicly gets tested for AIDS?—my addition)
11) Find a book worth talking about. (Any book? After all, worth is one of those personal, relative opinion situations isn’t it?—my addition)
12) Change your reading habits. (Read more or read less? Less is a change isn’t it?—my addition)
13) Yawn! (According to some scientists we do too much of this now—sleep deprivation. Is this a suggestion for more sleep deprivation?—my addition)
14) Build memories through scents.
15) Go to Ivy League classes online.
16) Make a ‘Not-to-do list.’
17) Swing by your local library. (Should we go in and check out a book or just swing by?—my addition)
18) Read an international newspaper. (Get the same biased prospective from a different source.—my addition)
19) Sign up for RSS feed.
20) Study geography.
21) Put the freeze on identity theft.
22) Analyze your investment strategy.
23) Hedge your portfolio.
24) Use your mobile phone for everything. (Do they have shares of stock in mobile phone companies?—my addition)
25) Switch to geothermal heating. (Did Al Gore finally do this?—my addition)
26) Get a raise.
27) Click on compact fluorescent lights. (Ignore the mercy!—my addition)
28) Set up a Roth 401(k).
29) Use software to catalog your property.
30) Donate your money better to charity. (Does this include Planned Murderhood? Can charity donations be good or evil?—my addition)
31) Take your kids into the voting booth. (Does this mean taking them out of school?—my addition)
32) Remember the life of Martin Luther King Jr.
33) Listen better.
34) Learn American Sign Language.
35) Stop drinking bottled water. (Stop drinking alcohol?—my addition)
36) Adopt a dog. (Dog discrimination!—my addition)
37) Volunteer for your local fire department.
38) Recycle your Christmas tree.
39) Share ideas at
40) Commit ‘random acts of kindness.’ (Is this another instance of personal, relative opinion situations? Is my imploring practicing homosexuals to REPENT an act of kindness or being mean-spirited? Should we strive to be kind at all times or just randomly? “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such there is no law.” Galatians 5: 22-23 (NIV) Wait! We can’t talk about kindness—that’s a biblical concept which also includes self-control and neither should be random.—my addition)
41) Avoid recalls: Make your own toys. (Now they are making toy manufacturers happy!—my addition)
42) Go see a play or musical.
43) Visit Shea Stadium or Yankee Stadium before they’re gone. (Or, boycott baseball!—my addition)

45) Try wines from unexpected places. (Stop drinking alcohol!—my addition)
46) Brew a better cup of coffee. (Stop drinking coffee!—my addition)
47) Be daffy: Celebrate Tex Avery’s birthday. (Why not? We celebrate everything else!—my addition)
48) Get a coupon for a digital TV converter. (Get rid of the TV. Is there really anything worth your time watching?—my addition)
49) Pick up the next Harry Potter-style epic.
50) Knit like a hipster.”
51) Cancel your subscription to U.S. News and World Report. (Okay, I added that one but it doesn’t seem like a bad idea to me.—my addition)

Did you notice anything about all 50 of the prescribed “improvements on your life?” Not one spiritual reference in the fifty. Not one reference to GOD the creator of the universe.

In the end, not one of the above suggestions will make a significant difference in your life. Here is the real list!!!

1) First and most important, become a Christian. This is the most important thing anyone can do because ONLY Christians will spend eternity in heaven with GOD. And I don’t mean the neo-christian lies so many are repeating today—believe and say this prescribed prayer and you will be saved. That is NOT what the Bible teaches! The so called prayer is NOT in the Bible. Rather, the Bible says you must HEAR/STUDY the WORD of GOD. Then, you must BELIEVE/have FAITH that GOD is the one true GOD—the CREATOR, SAVIOR, and LORD—and that JESUS is the SON of GOD. Next, you must REPENT and TURN FROM your sins. You must CONFESS that JESUS is GOD and SAVIOR. You must be BAPTIZED into CHRIST. Finally, you must be OBEDIENT to GOD’S will for the rest of your physical life.

2) FEAR and LOVE the LORD your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.

3) LOVE all others as yourself.


5) PRAY continually to GOD.

6) WORSHIP GOD in spirit and in truth.

7) FORGIVE others as you would want to be forgiven.

Did I forget anything? Possibly. However, I want to stop at seven. Of course, all seven of these intertwine and can not be separated from each other. These seven though will be of much greater importance that anything man can and will devise.
