Definition of an Evangelical Christians

Forgive me, I am trying to learn the (Why)?
Creator (GOD), is watching us all!

It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning.
In Western culture today, there are many caricatures of evangelical Christians. For some, the term evangelical Christian is equivalent to “right-wing, fundamentalist Republican.” For others, “evangelical Christian” is a title used to differentiate an individual from a Catholic Christian or an Orthodox Christian
As for me, a Native Spiritual Teacher for most of my life, retired.
I have a problems understanding today’s Evangelical Christians.
What is this and how did this happen?
One would tend to think that a Christian is any believer that follows the teaching of Jesus Christ as their Savior?
In reality, all Christians should be evangelical Christians. The Bible is consistently instructing us to be witnesses of the good news (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 16:1-4; 1 Peter 3:15). There is no better news than Jesus! There is no higher calling than evangelist. There is no doubt that holding to the fundamentals of the Bible will result in a certain worldview and, yes, political belief.

However, there is nothing about being an evangelical that demands a certain political party or affiliation. An evangelical Christian is called to share the good news, to preach God’s Word, and to set an example of purity and integrity. If these callings require political action, so be it. At the same time, evangelical Christians should not be sidetracked into abandoning our highest calling—sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The term evangelical derives from the Greek word euangelion meaning “gospel” or “good news.” Technically speaking, evangelical refers to a person, church, or organization that is committed to the Christian gospel message that Jesus Christ is the savior of humanity.

What does it mean to be an Evangelical Christian? How is it different from other labels of Christianity?
“right-wing, fundamentalist Republican.”
How long can a reasonable society label as “righteous” any group of people largely propped up by bigotry, arrogance, intolerance, division, indifference and outright contempt for the most oppressed?
It’s time to stand up, point and shout: “The Emperor has no clothes!”

“The Emperor has no clothes!”
Used to express when many people believe something that is not true. Used also to express something as untrue. See also the expression “the Emperor’s new clothes”.
Based on Sufi wisdom, Hans Christian Andersen tells the tale in his “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, the story this expression derives from. In it. there existed an emperor who loved wearing fine clothes and spent all of his people’s money on them. He had a different set for each hour and was, without doubt, the finest dressed man in the land.

Julia Kemple started this petition to Representative Fred Upton and 6 others
Adults have failed us. Everyday, we students walk into school with the promise of an education without threat of violence. However, it has become increasingly clear that hallways of schools across America are no longer a guaranteed safe haven. Whether it’s an elementary school in small-town Connecticut or a high school in Florida, it’s become apparent that school shootings are becoming an expected part of American life. Since 2013, there have been 291 school shootings, with 18 of them happening in 2018 alone. We simply ask how many shootings will it take, how many innocent children have to die, until adults decide we, as our nation’s children, are more important than our nation’s guns. Therefore, we ask our fellow students to take it upon ourselves to stand up as our adults remain sitting. We demand change.
While most students cannot vote, we are not voiceless to our society. There are about 56 million K through 12 students in the United States. If we mobilize this population — by signing petitions, contacting lawmakers, and utilizing social media — we can make our presence felt. Ultimately, our goal is to pressure lawmakers to make comprehensive and responsible gun control policy to keep our schools and society safe.
It’s not a matter of if anymore, it’s a matter of when we will be affected.

The 2nd Amendment is just 27 words long:
No more, no less!


“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
However; “Money Talks Truth Walks!”
“A well paid congress has been changing and adding to what our for-fathers wrote to help protect citizens from congress”!

I do not like hiding any of the

‘Scum of the Earth’

from the people!
NRA–National Rifle Association!

The young school students are on to you, Mr. Speaker of the House of Representatives.
They are saying that “Paul Ryan is being paid by the NRA”!
I say, “Well DUH!”
“Why else would anyone constantly make a complete Ass of himself in the media, each time the media talks Guns?
I know, I know, he has always been one!
First, I dispute this because, the National Rifle Association Lobbyist are paying congress!
Paul Ryan and most if not all of congress is being paid by billionaires like the Koch Brothers!

An AR 15 automatic rifle is not a gun, it is a weapon!
An AK-47 is not a gun, it is a weapon!

The National Rifle Association didn’t purchase the gun, the National Rifle Association did not pull the trigger, and the National Rifle Association didn’t pass the laws!
However
The officers of the National Rifle Association along with the 10% rich, did feed people in our governments to write laws helping to sell guns that are killing our children among others! 
Alas, the modern day Militia, believes in protecting themselves from a mutilated government!

You can own a hundred-thousand Ar-15’s, and a hundred-thousand Ak-47’s.
The government has an unlimited supply of weapons and thousands of them are Nuclear Missiles! 

In 2016, there were 9.4 million individuals with net worth between $1 million and $5 million, 1.3 million individuals with net worth between $5 million and $25 million, and 156,000 households with more than $25 million in net worth, the report says. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/03/24/a-record-number-of-americans-are-now-millionaires-new-study-shows.html

St, Roman Lupercalia Day ( Valentine’s Day)
A few days after this occult day, we go out to whenever I choose to go, where I chose to go.
P.S.
I always pick my birthday because it is just a few day’s later.
Ash Wednesday?
Ecclesiastes 3:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
In the Old Testament ashes were found to have used for two purposes: as a sign of humility
and mortality; and as a sign of sorrow and repentance for sin.
The Christian connotation for ashes in the liturgy of Ash Wednesday has also been taken from this Old Testament biblical custom./

Christians believe that because of the cross, Jesus Christ is the  only way to remove sin.
John 14:6 King James Version (KJV)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The Roman Festival of Lupercalia
February, or February 15, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.
To begin the festival, members of the Luperci, an order of Roman priests, would gather at a sacred cave where the infants Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome, were believed to have been cared for by a she-wolf or lupa. The priests would sacrifice a goat, for fertility, and a dog, for purification. They would then strip the goat’s hide into strips, dip them into the sacrificial blood and take to the streets, gently slapping both women and crop fields with the goat hide. Far from being fearful, Roman women welcomed the touch of the hides because it was believed to make them more fertile in the coming year. Later in the day, according to legend, all the young women in the city would place their names in a big urn. The city’s bachelors would each choose a name and become paired for the year with his chosen woman. These matches often ended in marriage.
around A.D. 270–others claim that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Celebrated at the ides of February, or February 15, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

Do you plan to conquer your honey-do list

Energy EfficiencyThe Centsible Weekend DIY
Do you plan to conquer your honey-do list this weekend? Add these inexpensive, DIY tasks to save energy and reduce your monthly electric bill. Now that’s centsible.
1. Seal doors and windows: Remove old, cracked caulking from windows, and apply new caulking around the joints and frame. Replacing worn weather-stripping around exterior doors keeps cool air in, and hot air out.
2. Reduce phantom loads: TVs, DVRs, cable boxes and home computers use power when turned “off.” Energy.gov reports phantom load can cost an average household up to $100 a year. What to do? Use power strips with multiple plug-ins, and turn them off when electronics aren’t in use.
3. Stop the leaks: Repair leaky faucets and fixtures that are not only wasting water, but causing your well and, if the leaking water is hot, your water heater to cycle on more often.
4. Build an outdoor clothesline: On average, a clothes dryer costs $.40 to dry one load of laundry. Skip the dryer and air-dry one load of laundry a day, and save almost $150 a year.
5. Vacuum refrigerator coils: Once a year, vacuum away dirt and dust collected on your refrigerator coils to keep it running efficiently. Coils are located on the bottom or back of the appliance, and don’t forget to always unplug the refrigerator before servicing.

Greener Grid – More Megawatts

SECO News, November 2017

 Duncan’s Digest

Greener Grid More Megawatts

SECO Energy’s mission statement and purpose is “To provide exceptional service to our members, co workers and communities.” The very foundation of that mission requires developing long-range energy supply plans for the future. Looking ahead, not-for-profit utilities like SECO Energy must adapt to the changing landscape of energy production,

while being prepared to deliver safe, reliable, low-cost power to current and future members.
In late September while many of us were still reeling from Hurricane Irma, SECO’s wholesale provider, Seminole Electric Cooperative, announced a five-year plan to build a new natural gas-fired generating plant at its current Seminole Generating Station (SGS) facility in Palatka. The plan includes Seminole’s intention to shutter one of its two coal-fired generating units at the SGS site and enter into agreements to purchase power from other facilities that use solar and natural gas resources.
A key element of Seminole’s new long-term plan is increasing the diversity of fuel sources in its energy portfolio and generating mix. The decision is supported by continued natural gas market stability and historically low prices. Seminole is adjusting to the market by shifting its fuel mix to increase natural gas-fired power generation. This portfolio shift allows Seminole to meet the demand for more megawatts and provide safe, reliable, affordable power to its members while investing in a greener grid.
Seminole has invested over $530 million in environmental controls at its SGS facility, making it one of the cleanest coal plants in the United States. Clean-burning coal is a reliable and affordable means to produce energy, and portions of Seminole’s coal-burning generating plant will remain in use. When the presidency changes hands every four or eight years, the nation faces the possibility of new, costly regulations and policy changes aimed directly at reducing America’s dependency on coal. Additional policies and regulations usher in new expenses that risk increased energy rates and higher bills for members. Reducing coal use, however, reduces carbon emissions.
Similar to a financial portfolio with its mix of stocks and funds, Seminole’s expansion of fuel sources minimizes future risk and offers stability to its member-owners, including SECO. As your local not-for-profit electric cooperative with an expanding member base, we must embrace forward thinking ways to meet demand. Under Seminole’s new long-term plan, SECO can ensure an adequate supply of quality, reliable, affordable power is available to meet the current and future needs of our growing area.
