God Has His Reasons

When God moves in the lives of His children, the reasons may appear to be one thing, when they are completely different. You might think that you’ve crashed and burned on the shoals of capricious events. You might not see any rhyme or reason for what is happening to you, but God sees things differently. And, if you are a true follower of Christ, for long enough, you will see a lot of this.

To put it another way, nothing happens by accident. Nothing. And, I take a great deal of comfort in that, and I hope that you do too.

God Has His Reasons


The Top Ten Videos Of The Past Week:



We’re moving.

That sentence has always made me shudder. I’m like a cat, and cats HATE moving. With a passion.

What a purrfect description of yours truly.

Before Mrs. Little became Mrs. Little, she knew that I was a traveler. Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Britain, Netherlands, Jordan and Egypt – I’d been to all those places, often multiple times, while living in Israel, but she forgot to ask if I enjoyed doing all that traveling. I did not. In fact, I despised most of it with a passion.

I’m not sure if I’m the ultimate homebody, but I’ve gotta be pretty close. And, when God moves me away from my comfy chair, out into the WhoKnowsWhere, I complain and God laughs.

However, I also know that God has very, very good reasons for each and every move that I’ve endured over the years, so I know that this next one – the one that happens on Monday – will have its own reasons.

Yes, that’s right. I’m moving. On Christmas Eve.

Oh joy.

Of course, Christmas Eve is just another day, here in Taiwan, so that doesn’t matter much. What matters more, is that my father-in-law is in need of our help. And, he’s a really good guy who helped make Mrs. Little the person that she is today.

Where are we moving?


Just writing that makes me shudder a bit. It’s a perfectly fine city in southern Taiwan. And, there’s a lot that’s good about it. In fact, it might even be the perfect place for both of us. I even expect that I will be glad that we made this move – except for the fact that we will be living in the steamy tropics, below the line called the Tropic of Cancer.

Do you get cancer when you do that?

Just asking.

Having said that, I had some inkling that God was getting ready to do something with us, when we became ‘unmoored’, earlier this year. And, I wrote about that, here:


Over the intervening months, I’d been wondering what changes God was going to make. I knew that something was coming. I just didn’t know WHAT. Or, where. And, I’m still not completely sure.

However, I DO know that there’s an even greater need for evangelism in Tainan, than in Taipei. Taipei is about ten percent Christian already. Outside of Taipei, the percentage drops to one or two percent – far, far lower than even mainland China. And, evangelism is the most important job that we have. It’s our purpose. It’s the Great Commission.

So, I shall moan and groan. I shall complain. I might even beat my chest and loudly proclaim the unfairness of it all. And, I have lots of experience doing that. But, I’ll quiet down after a few weeks.

I always do.

And, after 45 years of experience as a Christian, I am walking proof that the following verse is true:

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

 – Romans 8:28

I have held that verse close to my heart for a very, very long time. And, it has helped me through great difficulty. Compared to THOSE moments in time, moving from Taipei to Tainan is nothing. And, this move IS nothing, except for the fact that I’m a cat, and complain when the furniture is moved.


No. Really. I do. When the furniture is moved. I kid you not.

I’m only half kidding when I say that you should feel sorry for Mrs. Little. She really does have to put up with a lot.

Now, the reason why I’m writing all this (aside from having a good kvetch), is to point out that no matter what is going on in your life, there is a good reason for it. Many of you have written to me about the trials that you are experiencing. Some of those trials are heartbreaking, and I wish that you didn’t need to go through them. And, I completely empathize with the pain that you are going through. But, I am a walking, talking, living proof that God has His reasons, and those reasons are always good.


In fact, I’m betting that some of us will not know all of those reasons, until we get to heaven. When that happens, we’ll realize just how important it was for us to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous (mis)fortune, so that God could be glorified in the hearts of those that He was calling.

I know that this is scant comfort as you weather the trials that you are going through. And, these trials may get worse over the coming months and years. But, I also know that God is never far from us…

…and He always has His reasons.

A big thank you to all who sent me articles. I appreciate all of it.



Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.

And yes, these are pretty serious.

Christians ‘Standing in the Way’ of China’s Xi Jinping’s Totalitarian Rule | CBN News

It was forty years ago, this month that China started opening up, and it was the moment when China started to become more Christian. Not the government. The people.

And, I find it interesting that, as China became more Christian, America became less. Less Christian. Less moral. Less honorable. Less ethical. Less righteous.

Again, not the government. The people.

Unfortunately, China is about to descend into one of the most difficult times in her history. And, it’s the moment when old dynasties fall, and new ones arise. And, the Chinese Communist Party is fearful of losing her power.

This crackdown is a sign of that fear. Also, the rise in this ‘social credit system’ is also a sign. The same goes for Xi being made ‘president for life’. They are bracing for an awful moment in time.

Now, God blessed China for allowing the gospel to have free rein. Ten percent of China is Christian. A hundred million people have accepted Christ as their Lord and savior and truly serve Him – even if it means persecution, imprisonment and death.

Those Chinese Christians are the real deal. I doubt that there are as many real Christians in America, as there are in China.

There are two ‘takeaways’ from this article:

ONE – China is ready to fall, and the Chinese leadership know it.

TWO – Persecution of dear brothers and sisters in Christ, has come. In China.

But, as much as Chinese brothers and sisters would love for you to pray for their deliverance, their greatest desire is that the gospel would spread to every corner of China – and then, to the rest of the world.

But, as you pray for the gospel in China, pray also for the persecuted. Their time is now. Our time is coming.

Christian Persecution is at an All Time High! – YouTube

Unfortunately, it’s not just China that is persecuting Christians, and there is one Christian that you can help, right now. Asia Bibi.

This is Act For America’s request that the United States give asylum to this persecuted woman. Someone needs to protect the Christians. If America doesn’t…

…who will?

America used to protect Christians by default. Now, you need to sign a petition.

Here is the petition to ask the United States to give Asia Bibi refuge in the United States.

I can’t sign it, because I do not live in the US. But, if you do… you can.

People as strong as this deserve more spotlight than most. – Album on Imgur

And, let’s not forget the horrifying suffering of the North Korean people. And, the North Korean Christians. This young woman made it out. Many do not.

How is it that we tolerate such an obscenity?

The Use of False Flags to Increase Power | Armstrong Economics

So, Armstrong gets it. More importantly, he knows that the Deep State will create something far, far worse than 9/11, to give themselves permission to do worse.

Here’s the last paragraph:

As we look ahead, they desperately need another False flag to escape from the collapsing structure of Socialism. A war will be very convenient to blame so expect this in the not so distant future. This also is why they have to try to get rid of Trump – he is not one of them! They just have to always bash Trump even when the event was the funeral of George H. W. Bush as the Washington Post reported: Trump odd man out as presidents assemble for Bush funeral. There is not an event that can take place without the media trying to tear Trump apart. They are part of the agenda to remove any outsider to allow Washington to do what it does best – manipulate the people and False flags are very much a part of the agenda.

So, expect something fairly soon. Within the next couple of years, that will knock your socks off – and probably plunge the world into a war of unimaginable proportions.

We’ll see.

The 100 Year March: A Philosopher in Poland – YouTube

Chris from Poland shared this link in the comment section, and it’s about Poland. And,right now, it is on the front lines in the battle against the growing tyranny of the EU. The EU wants all national identity destroyed. They want the will to resist the dictates of Brussels to be eliminated. And, countries like Poland, Hungary, The Czech Republic, Slovenia and others are fighting what appears to be a losing battle against what the EU is trying to do.

So, Stefan Molyneux took a trip to see what Poland was up to. To see this Polish March of Independence. Everyone was calling it a ‘Far Right’ march. Of course, the ‘everyone’ that I’m referring to were the mainstream media, the leftist politicians and the EU bureaucrats.

It was not Far Right.

It was Polish. For Poland.

There’s something about a history of suffering that brings you down to earth, and I think that Stefan got a taste of that in his trip to Poland. He would also have gotten the same taste in Israel. In Hungary. Even in Russia.

Unfortunately, Stefan misses a key point in all of this, and that is faith. Faith in God. Without it, there is no moral compass to put that suffering into a proper perspective. And, you will see Stefan, in a Polish cemetery, reject the innate evil in humanity. He saw the evidence all around him. It was pain, suffering and death, writ large, and he refused to accept that this was the human condition.

I fast-forwarded through a lot of that. But, I understand his need to make that soliloquy.

If you do not embrace a faith in God, you must believe in the innate goodness of mankind.

But, the value of this video is in Stefan’s observations of the the people of Poland itself. And, there is a lot to like and admire about Poland and the Poles. And, when you delve into Polish history, you will see even more.

For two hundred years, Poland was a great bastion of freedom, before she was crushed by Russia and Germany. She helped turn back the Ottoman attempt to conquer Europe for Islam. And, she was battered, beaten and betrayed by every would-be emperor and empire.

Thank you, Chris, for that excellent suggestion.

Who Are the Rich, White Men Institutionalizing Transgender Ideology?

PrepperGall sent this in, and it is utterly horrifying. This isn’t just ‘Rich White Men’. It’s ‘Rich White AMERICAN Men’. I could even add, Rich White American HOMOSEXUAL Men, and I am gobsmacked over this. And, I should not be.

Worse, these rich, America homosexuals are foisting their horrifying sin on the rest of the world. They are making their foul ideology into something that people will view as ‘quintessentially American’.

Wanna be like an American?


And, it is this ‘movement’ that is attempting to make homosexual deviance as American as apple pie.

PrepperGal, thanks for the nause… er …link!

What Lengths Will China Go To Feed Its People as Ancient Cycles Repeat (767) – YouTube

This is an important point. Chinese dynasties tended to fall when a Grand Solar Minimum would hit. The claim in this video is that they could PREDICT when a Grand Solar Minimum would hit – or, in their words, when the ‘Mandate of Heaven’ would be removed.

The bottom line is that crop failure led to malnutrition and susceptibility to disease. And, when the weather got cold, the Mongols went south – hence the Great Wall of China.

Volcano WARNING: Naples supervolcano may be gearing up for eruption | World | News | Express.co.uk

The first sentence in this article got my attention:

ITALY’S Campi Flegrei volcano has, for the first time in nearly 400 years, been “showing a type of unrest” which could indicate it is “getting ready for another eruption”, volcano expert Christopher Kilburn has said.

We have already seen a connection between Grand Solar Minimums and volcanic activity. The deeper the GSM, the worse the volcanic activity. And, the deepest GSMs are every four hundred years. And, the one that we are going into might be the worst in thousands of years.

The point is that this volcano last erupted during the previous Grand Solar Minimum, and it looks like it’s getting ready to erupt again.

This could get interesting.

Federal judge in Texas strikes down Affordable Care Act

So, the Republicans might actually have done something worthwhile. I might need to withdraw my attacks on the Republicans, a little bit.

I was wondering if ‘removing the mandate’ could kill that stupid and insane law, and now it has.

Here in Taiwan, they have a ‘single payer’ system. And, I’ve watched the Taiwanese government keep having to change the system because morons and evil people keep trying to take advantage of it. They’ll go to the emergency room when they have a head cold. They call for an ambulance, when they want to go somewhere near a hospital – instead of taking a taxi.

And, when someone dies while in the hospital, because the patient was too sick or injured to save, some have tried to sue hospitals and doctors into oblivion. And, doctors have been leaving because of this.

The good thing is that Taiwan is a small country, so they can keep ‘fine tuning’ until they get it right – or until the morons in Taiwan find another way to abuse the system. As much as I love the Taiwanese, some are dumber than a box of rocks and others are utterly evil. And, the evil ones tend to have enough money to buy off politicians.

However, those places that have a higher concentration of Christians, tend to be less prone to corruption. I always find that thought to be interesting. Mrs. Little told me about some factories spewing out horrifying levels of pollution, and those factories are smack-dab in the middle of an area that doesn’t very many – if any – Christians.

This isn’t a very scientific observation, and I would be interested in seeing a more thorough analysis.

The bottom line is that those who are corrupt, stupid or both, will destroy any healthcare system that tries to make sure that everyone has access. I’m watching it at work, here in Taiwan, and it’s a mess. Of course, my personal saying about the Taiwanese is that…

They are adorable, but annoying.

And, when I tell this to my Taiwanese friends – the ones who have spent time in America and understand my point of view – laugh and agree. And, our Bible classes, here in Taiwan are usually full of adorable Taiwanese, since the annoying ones don’t last very long.

I love driving people who are annoying, up the wall – although, I usually do it by accident, with enthusiasm.

Federal Judge Strikes Down Obamacare, 2479 – YouTube

Here’s more from Bill Still. This ‘affordable care’ is killing America. It needs to stop. Too much corruption and too high a cost. And, John McCain kept it alive.

Something needs to be done, but what is being done is just plain wrong.

EU’s Juncker takes aim at Hungary’s Orban over fake news | Reuters

How ironic. The EU is starting to eat its own people. How utterly ironic, and entirely predictable. Here’s the key quote:

Singling out Orban, Juncker told reporters: “Some of the prime ministers sitting around the table, they are the origin of the fake news.”

“When Mr. Orban for example says … that migrants are responsible for Brexit, it’s fake news. So let’s not put all the responsibility on others,” Juncker said.

Juncker wants to shut Orban down for speaking the truth?

Even if it was an incorrect bit of ‘truth’, and merely an opinion, that moron Juncker is being… well …a moron. And, my personal definition of moron is someone who is both evil and a drooling idiot. If you are merely a drooling idiot, I would never – or, almost never – call you a moron. Only evil people get that description.

Juncker is a moron. And, he will one day be revealed as the evil, drooling idiot that he is.

Shadow Government Short Part 4 – YouTube

Everything that is said here, is corroborated by more than one source. The only thing that I cannot corroborate is his friendship with Bill Binney. But, I doubt that he would make such a claim that could be so easily denounced. So, there’s a ring of ‘authenticity’ to that claim. And, any friend of Bill Binney is a friend of good people.

The only thing that I have a problem with, is his optimism. As long as America is immoral, there will be no Constitutional government. And, you don’t need to be a Christian to understand that. Even an Atheist could see that a lack of honesty and integrity in the populace would doom ANY country that wishes to be ruled by just laws.

There are very few in America with the morality and the ability to fix what is broken. There are havens of goodness in America, and I pray that they will be unscathed by the wrath of God, when it comes. But, those ‘havens’ have been sidelined by a rapacious and immoral government and populace.

To quote Joseph de Maistre:

Toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite.

(Every nation gets the government it deserves.)

Of course, poor Joseph was an ardent Catholic who blamed the ‘Reformation’ for many of history’s ills. But nevertheless, he’s right.

America has the government that she deserves.

Uranium One Whistleblower’s Home Raided, 2484 – YouTube

The level of corruption in this incident is obscene. There is no reason to ‘raid’ this man’s home. He was already volunteering information on this, and then… he’s raided. And, it looks to me like evidence was removed from his home. This does not look like the ‘FBI Doing Its Job’. No, this looks like the FBI being used to cover tracks.

Social media is turning a generation of children into liars, leading headmistress warns

This ‘headmistress’ of a girls’ school, is completely and utterly correct. Our teenagers are learning the benefits of dishonesty. They are rewarded for lying and punished for telling the truth. And, it creates a vicious feedback loop until your precious teenager learns to be a sociopath, or completely depressed. Or both.

I mean, it’s really hard to be honest about how you are doing, when everyone around you presents themselves as being fantastic and incredible. The handsome and beautiful win ‘likes’. The painful and hurting do not.

But, if you read the whole article – and most people would not – you’ll find this, near the bottom:

Miss Hincks said that while lessons about integrity may once have been upheld by public institutions and other parts of society, this is no longer the case.

“People revealed to be unfaithful to their spouse don’t lose all public integrity in the way they once did,” she said. The Church and institutions such as the BBC used to be considered as “bastions of public morality”, but now schools have had to fill the void, she added.

Ah. So, she’s a moral person who understands how important it is, but the writer of the article decided to bury it at the bottom, where most will not go.

That, is classic journalism. And, it’s utterly disgusting. I’m also sure that the writer also left out other things that she said that would annoy those who wish to get rid of the idea that Christian values have an important place in our society.

New Report Shows How Schools Weaponize Child Protection Services Against Parents – Foundation for Economic Education

Here’s a quote that should drive anyone insanely angry:

An investigative report by The Hechinger Report and HuffPost released last month revealed that schools are increasingly using child protective services as a “weapon” against parents. It said:

Fed up with what they see as obstinate parents who don’t agree to special education services for their child, or disruptive kids who make learning difficult, schools sometimes use the threat of a child-protection investigation to strong-arm parents into complying with the school’s wishes or transferring their children to a new school. That approach is not only improper, but it can be devastating for families, even if the allegations are ultimately determined to be unfounded.

More troubling, these threats disproportionately target low-income and minority parents. According to the report:

Such families also have fewer resources to fight back. When a family in a wealthy Brooklyn neighborhood learned roughly two years ago that their child’s school had initiated an ACS [New York’s Administration for Children’s Services] investigation against them, they sued the city education department. Parents from lower-income, majority-black and Latino neighborhoods, few of whom can afford that option, say such investigations can be a regular, even expected, part of parenting.

It certainly makes me madder than… well, I’m not sure what could make me more angry. These foul fiends from Hell are willing to destroy your child because YOU dared to defy them.

As a parent, you have a special responsibility to provide for them. It is you job. And, you will answer to God, should you neglect that duty. Yet, here is the government, seeking to destroy the child that you are pledged to protect.

May the Wrath of God descend upon those who would do such things, until they repent and seek to undo the foul evil that they have done.

Package Thief vs. Glitter Bomb Trap – YouTube

THIS is a LOT of FUN. You will really enjoy this video, and it would normally go into the humor section, except that this video provides a very serious commentary on the average American.

The average America has become more dishonest, more fraudulent and more larcenous. Compare that with Taiwan, where you can leave your purse in a public place and come back twenty minutes later with nothing stolen.

So, tell me again how America is a better country than Taiwan?

I’m not here because of that, unless it was God’s wish for you to hear this. For me to see it, so that I could tell you.

When I was growing up in Indiana, people did not steal packages left on your porch. You didn’t even need to lock your doors.

Not now.

Former NASA engineer Mark Rober glitter bombs Amazon delivery thieves

Here’s the writeup for the above video.

If I had my druthers, this ‘trap’ would have had something far more damaging than ‘glitter’. But, God calls us to NOT do stuff like that, so I would never do it. I would be punished by God, if I did.

A better, more Christ-like thing to do, would be to go to that person and share the Gospel with them – pointing out that they have sinned greatly before God. That they will be punished by God, unless they repent and seek to undo the evil that they have done.

THAT is something that Mrs. Little would do, and I suspect that I would do that too. Maybe. Hopefully. I’m not as nice as Mrs. Little.

So, please get out of the blast zone.

18 Most Mortifying Media Moments of 2018 :: Grabien News

America has gone insane. Or at least, the media have. But, Americans watched and believed. And, I find it difficult that Americans can be sane and intelligent, if they accept and allow these morons to spew their hatred and insanity so widely and so thoroughly.

And no, I’m not using hyperbole here. This is a very, very serious problem. And, it’s a serious sign that America has become a dysfunctional nation – full of cognitive dissonance and utter insanity.

America was supposed to be the ‘shining city on the hill’. America was supposed to be the example that every country aspired to be. And, the utter insanity of the past year has shown that America is a corrupt, dishonest, immoral and insane country.

Over 40 percent of Americans say no to flu vaccinations – Story | WNYW

This article brings up an interesting point for those of you who are ‘anti-vaxxers’. More than 80,000 people in the US, died of the flu, during the previous ‘flu season’. That’s a lot.

Would a flu shot have saved those people?

It’s hard to say, but at least some of them – if not most – would have survived.

Yes, I know that there are problems with flu shots, and there are ways to mitigate those problems by making sure that you get the more expensive version with fewer preservatives. And, I don’t like the indignant secrecy surrounding Big Pharma’s efforts to keep the vaccine ‘gravy train’ going.

There are problems with vaccines, and those problems require ethical research. And yes, I really meant that word ‘ethical’. There has been too much ‘unethical’ research out there without the ‘double-blind’ studies and independent evaluations.

Having said that, vaccines do work. We have lots of proof of that, and there are many alive today, that are alive, because of vaccines.

This is an interesting and fun conversation that I enjoyed listening to. Professor Saad is a keen observer of what is going on right now. He just does not understand how God made us, that we are programmed to fail, when we stray from His morality.

Now, I shall go back into the closet.

Our World in 2019 – The Scary Truth! – YouTube

This is about the Roman Catholic Church and the evil that they are doing and covering up. And, they are raping little boys and girls at their summer camps and in their institutions.

But, the video then ends with a discussion about a show that portrays teen prostitution in a sympathetic light. And, the producers seemed to have no moral qualms about what they were portraying.

We live in a truly sick society.

LA bishop resigns 13 years after church learned of sex claim

And now, California – where the Roman Catholic Church was actively, with malice, suppressing evidence of the rape of young children by priests. And, they protected those priests.

And, promoted them.

What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this. Corruption is ALWAYS how republics and kingdoms fall – and how the military takes over.

Remember the generals that surround Trump.

This was not an accident.

However, please take note that public pressure for a military takeover never happens until people suffer economic and financial stress. So, don’t expect this ‘takeover’ to happen until the economy turns sharply downward. The military will not want to see a repeat of the French Revolution.

We’ve been talking about the collapse of the economy and financial system for a very long time, and every day that collapse is delayed… well …the collapse just gets worse and worse. Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.

In fact, it has begun already.

By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.

Survey On US Economy: Americans Turn More Pessimistic on Economy, Trump Approval Down

This means that people will spend less. That will make economists upset, since our current economy requires that people spend more than they can afford.

To put it another way, American society requires that Americans act in a way that is completely stupid, or everything falls apart. And, the situation is so bad now… that when things DO fall apart …they will REALLY fall apart.

We were all too stupid to realize how bad an idea this all was.

Why The Collapsing Chinese Credit Impulse Is All That Matters | Zero Hedge

And, here’s more on how shaky China is right now.

For those of you scratching your heads over what a ‘credit impulse’ is, here’s a good definition:

Spending is a flow, and should be compared with net new lending, a flow, rather than credit outstanding, a stock. Hence changes in spending are dependent on changes in net new lending or, equivalently, on the acceleration of credit.

Michael Biggs, economist at Deutsche Bank, introduced this idea in Nov 2008 and, by analogy with the well known concept of fiscal impulse, defined “credit impulse” as the “the change in new credit issued as a % of GDP”. Since 2008, it has been shown, for many time periods and many countries, that private sector demand is very closely correlated with private sector credit impulse. This explains a number of conundrums missed by those who focus on the credit stock.

Basically, if there is an increase in demand for credit, the economy is moving upwards. If the demand declines, it means that the economy is moving downwards. And, this is a good indicator, since companies require an increase in credit when their orders increase. When orders decrease, they need less to cover their manufacturing costs for those new orders.

So yes, the credit impulse. It’s down in China, and that’s bad.

“Go to Syria, Iraq, North Africa, the Middle East or the Balkans, and ask the people there what they think of Turkey and Turks. You will never hear words such as colonialism, invasion, persecution or massacre. Instead, you will hear expressions of thanks that have become a symbol, such as, ‘The loyal Turk was here.’ … Yes, it has been a century since we left those lands but the waiting and the hope of the people there has never ended….

16 thoughts on “God Has His Reasons”

  1. Brother John,

    Thank you for this installment. I needed to ‘hear’ you. I needed to be reminded that God has reasons. I needed reinforcement that when a door closes, another one opens.

    You see, the company I work for is shutting down in February 2019. We will all lose our jobs. But I’m not worried.

    Many doors have been closed, but God always opened new ones.

    My family and I are blessed more than we deserve.

    Why are we closing? It’s the economy. But we already knew that.

    I fear for the rest of the country, however. The system is falling apart. Many will lose their homes and jobs.

    But, like the parable of the birds, God feeds those little birds. So I will not worry because I know He will provide.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    God Bless.

  2. Well I was cruising down checking out the commentary first when I got down to commentary on those darn Flu vaccines. SIGH. (FACEPALM). 80,000 cases of the flu??? Whose data is this?? Remember the CDC has $billions in vaccine stockpiles just waiting for the victims to get in line. Any data from an agency with letters and Inc. on their name has a profit motive agenda.

    I read an article (it might have been Rappaport) and it was in the past, the #s touted were like 36,000 cases of flu. Once the upper respiratory illness, and cases of pneumonia were ruled out that left the figures for flu death in the 30s and only 15 actually had blood draws to confirm that flu might have killed them. When it comes to data and statistics, first we consider the source, countersource, and counter studies that prove or disprove the studies, and we are still left guessing. I picked up a very interesting tidbit in my reading; Dr.Alzheimer, (whom the disease is named after) did multiple autopsies, and found (Post Mortem) the degenerative brain condition called Alzheimer’s. Now we have some newer technologies that might pick up on this condition, but how many people that have never had a CT scan (late 80s) or MRI (early 90s) were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s , with the only way to tell being post mortem. Go figure!!

  3. The great unmooring?! This only took 9 months. I look back on that time and marvel at the great and wonderful things that GOD has done with me, to me, and for me and the people around me. It’s AWESOME!! I went back and read unmoored and being my cheerfully annoying self looked at the date, and started thinking. The rush of different emotions over the different forms of the ground covered is indeed very humbling, especially in things and events that have been for good all around. I understand the moving thing. The great unmooring of life. I can, and probably should be writing about things such as this. It’s like standing on the rock, we become rocks ourselves. When we are out of balance, the ground we stand on has to be eroded from underneath just to get us to let gravity adjust our footing, if no footing is there we roll or slide downhill to the next resting place. It is hard to rejoice as we watch the footing erode away. Being a rock we open our eyes each day knowing life is going to happen to us. As with you Mrs.Little, and Nadine, change always comes, that is part of the promise. We may lose a few chunks on our way to the next resting place, we just pray for the mental fortitude, and physical strength to endure until the final REST. Keeping each other assured that Rest awaits as currents and erosion occurs is the best we can do.

    • “I can, and probably should be writing about things such as this. It’s like standing on the rock, we become rocks ourselves.” Very astute. I really haven’t thought of that before. Would like to add I (now) see the situations and circumstances in our lives as opportunities, among others, to build and exercise resiliency.

      I have heard it said that waiting time is not wasted time, as it can, and does, reveal what we have not seen before, be it our own issues, the character of others, opportunities or warnings we might have otherwise missed, promotions etc.

  4. After having lived below that line for half a decade, I can do not envy your move. However, since as you yourself has said, God Himself is moving you there, He will give you strength and endurance. He will have already gone before you and prepared your way and your place.

    God is good always and in all ways.

    • And, a very merry, belated Christmas to you too, MM! I hope that yours was full of joy. It wasn’t the birthday of Jesus, but I’m happy to celebrate it on any day that anyone wants to. As for MY Christmas… IT WAS HORRIBLE. More on that later… – JL

  5. John, Need your help again.
    The book of Judas? CNN special on the life of Jesus. Quoting from the book of Judas. I know your in the middle of a move. But, would you give your insight on the book of Judas.

    May the Lord Bless you and keep you.


    • Hi Dotty,

      The move is almost finished, so I can respond a bit to questions like this now.

      I’ve heard a little bit about this ‘book’, and what I’ve heard does NOT give me ANY confidence in what is in that book. A lot of heresies sprang up after the Christians were scattered abroad, especially after the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70.

      Even Paul spoke of some of these things in his own writings.

      The point is that – no matter how good an alternative sounds – we need to stick to those scriptures that have been approved by those early Christians that met to approve them. Yes, there are those who wish to sow doubt in our minds about those meetings that ‘canonized’ the Bible, but we should ignore those who wish to distract us from the words of God.

      One resource that you might find valuable on this subject can be found here:


      Chris Pinto has done fantastic work in this area, and I highly recommend his website and podcasts. And, if you should listen to him, tell us what you think.

      I hope that helps, Dotty. And, I’m glad that you took the time to ask that important question.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      PS. NEVER trust CNN! If they say that the sky is blue, go outside and check.
