Lake Vesuvius in Wayne National Forest

this place looks very interesting and beautiful, I bet the wildlife is diverse as well.

s/lowcarb update,

 

howdy friends, just a little update, my diet is going well, I had a blimp on the radar today with the carbs I ate being of lower quality but it will be better tomorrow as it is grocery shopping day. my total carbs is still close to mark however. last week I had about five days of sinus congestion and such and not feeling well, but starting to feel well, always had sinus problems most of my life. some of my meals today were ketogenic, no carbs or very low carbs. so actually it only supper that my carb quality took a nose dive, but tomorrow is another day.

I have increased my walking, I have been using my skeltoes, filas, and you do use muscles and tendons in ways that require getting used to again, short of going totally barefoot this is as close as I can get without it hurting tomuch or my feet getting cold. my walking has been vigorous and brisk (all without much effort by the way).  this pace is coming naturally, which makes me convinced I am on the right track.

these skeltoes are not water proof by the way. and you feel the cold of the ground if it is really cold out.

thanks for reading.

what does it mean to be a jehovah’s witness?

 

what does it mean to be one of Jehovah’s witnesses? have you ever wondered that? I mean don’y you see us going door to door? maybe some of the conventions we have in various places around the world many see us and wonder, don’t you? so what does it mean then?

Just think about the name, Jehovah witness, what does a witness do? what exactly do they use witnesses for in court for example? tell what you know or what you have seen? what have I seen that I testify to? That Jehovah name has been tainted, muddied, reproached, blasphemied, and that he has been treated unjustly and he has been blamed for all the suffering the world has/is suffering, without anyone giving him a fair hearing as one would expect in a court of law.

when we go door to door we give others the chance to hear his side of the story, the chance to benefit from his loving concern, to see how he will end the suffering that he is blamed for, why he as allowed this suffering, and how we will benefit in a way that we would just be awestruck by. By striving to speak on his behalf we endeavor to help people see where the real problem lies and how Jehovah has not done to us what we deserve or left us in a lurch. we show by our obedience to his moral laws we show how his way is the best way to solve mankinds problems, to end the violence done to each other.

by remaining neutral to politics we show to others that we do not condone nor support the wars, and violence done in the name of saving people from tyranny while at the same time causing tyranny, and our hands remain clean before Jehovah and honest hearted people, we don’t share in the blame of those in power who break Jehovahs laws in the name of some end that appears good when in fact it is not. we show by our actions that we desire to see an end to all wars, violence, death and suffering. we show that we recognize jehovahs right to rule over the earth due to his creatorship, and we recognize that man’s efforts to end this violence cannot come through any of man’s efforts no matter how noble the motives.

we show others by what we say and do that we recognize the affects of Satan and his demon hordes use of governments, the economic system and religious institutions to do his bidding. How satan is behind all the false called knowledge, evolution,  enviromentalism,government being a righteous entity, and religion being a solution to a growing moral problem and materialism being a good thing. he is behind the wars, violence that is done in the name of some good or benevolent purpose.

we show that we want to see mankind united, in peaceful conditions where death is no more, that we trust that Jehovah’s way and motives are pure and above reproach. and endeavor to witness to this fact for those who care to listen. Far be it for anyone who loves Jehovah and his neighbor to want anything less, and to testify how that will be accomplished without using violence to achieve it.

we witness to the fact that Jehovah being our creator has the right and our best interests at heart to determine what is good and bad. He is the one who has the right to give life or take it away when someone is incorrigable. we recongize that wonderful qualities he has and try to share that with others, those qualities of love, justice, wisdom and power which are all balanced.  His quality of justice, wisdom and power did not motivate or require him to create life, his love did.

He doesn’t need us, he was complete, he lacked nothing, he created us to share life, not to create slaves, he was quite capable of doing all for himself without much effort if any at all. satan would have people believe that Jehovah’s motives are impure that he wants to enslave and being waited on hand and foot when it is satan who wants exactly that. He has used false religion and tv, movies and newspapers and magezines to give a wrong impression of the kind of person Jehovah is.

so I testify before all who read this Jehovah is not responsible for the injustices in the world he does not force people to love him, and does not force people to use their free will properly, he does hold an accounting for how we use this life he has given us, he will determine who is deserving of mercy and who is not, satan does not do this, he has no compassion or love, he never shows mercy he is limited by Jehovah to how much he can do as he was limited to how he could test job. If satan had full reign to do as he pleases he would of destroyed all mankind long ago, and no Jehovah’s witness would ever exist as he would stamp them out immediatly. but Jehovah’s love for mankind and eventually salvation by him would not allow him to let satan to do so. Satans contends not that Jehovah is not all powerful, but that he doesn’t have our best interests at heart, that he doens’t rule with totally unselfish motives, when in fact it is satan who is called a manslayer, who is the accuser and slandering of others whether man or angel or Jehovah.

do we do these things perfectly? absolutly not. we stumble many times but as the bible indicates the righteous may stumble many times but certainly will get up and continue on. Jehovahs approval is not contingent on being perfect. it is contengent on loving him and obeying him to the fullest extent we are capable of.

so if you have wondered, wonder no more. this is just the tip of the ice berg but should be enough to give you the idea what we are all about.

thanks for reading. have a wonderful day okay?

 

psuedo science vs real science

 

I was just thinking this morning about science, that word that conveys the seeking of truth, yes who doesn’t want to understand the world around them and their own minds and bodies better. this science has given us the cell phone, this neat computer, and better care for us when we are sick or in an accident, or need a mechanical repair in our bodies. It has given us cleaner water, energy to grow more food then ever with minimal damage to the enviroment and minimal labor requirements, science gave us more leisure time to pursue things we love, wonderful sunsets, time with family, more travel to interesting places we would never have time before the invent of technology like the car, tractor, plane, or even going to the moon, wow science allows us to do this and more.

science has even allowed us to build weath, much more than just money, which nowadays many realize is just a fictional commodity used to enslave us, this wealth allows us to help the less fortunant, government is not needed for this task, tho they take it over by force, because it is human nature, hence the inborn godly quality of compassion that many choose, without force, to exercise toward their fellow human. something  humans have always done through the ages.

Most humans when they understand a situation will act accordingly to the best interests of themselves and those around them, hence all benefit without one having  nothing while the other has it all. I find this a fascinating and wonderful thing when humans can act above animal instincts of self preservation to help out strangers, and I find it sad and enraging when there are those who will try to deny these facts and consider all wealthy individuals whehter they have alot of money or little to be selfish and no good for nothing humans who care not for their fellows who have to be forced by gov to share with the less fortunant.

Humans acting in godly ways do not need a gun to their head to help others, yet there are those who in power would like you to think everyone else, besides yourself of course, is selfish and must be forced to give charity and gov is the only entity that is unselfish and noble. everyone else, besides yourself is the selfish, greedy one, this my friend is the science of propaganda.

sciences have given us to much to appreaciate and benefit from, but there are those who hijack it not for a noble purpose but for the very greed and selfish desire for power they claim in others but deny in themselves. science is only as good as those who use or abuse it. this noble thing, science, the seeking of understanding, something the bible advocates strongly, especially of spiritual things, which will guard the hearts and minds of those who apply it from the fraud and harm it causes them, who will act with discretion and caution as a result of this understanding thus saving themselves from so much harm especially from the false love claimed by those in power.

science has a dark side, I am afraid, due to this abuse I speak of, many calling it psuedo science or junk science, used to deceive, to defraud and even to murder others, to deprive you and me from what is rightfully ours, the fruits of our labor, the use of free will, the ability to use the gifts Jehovah has given us to create a better world, to exercise our rights of worship, life, liberty, and honestly earned wealth. check out the history of those who loved Jehovah, did he ever leave them destitute? did he condemn them for their ingunity, or use of free will to solve problems in harmony with his will? Did he get upset and angry when they asked him honest questions? or kept the fruits of their labor or used their wealth for self preservation or used their wealth to create more wealth? or worked hard so as not to burden others? did they ever feel that Jehovah should just take care ot them without them having to lift a finger to help themselves? did they ever feel they had a right to the fruits of other people’s labor without just compensation?

science thus has a dark side, tho not sciences fault, the use of techonology to create every kind of weapon you can imagine that has slaughtered billions of people over the last 100 years. these sciences have names, spreading democracy, eugenics, planned parenthood, genocide, disease prevention, foreign aid, welfare, income taxation, archealogy, ecology, enviromentalism, socialism, capitialism, fascism, political science,  and yes even medical science. these names have been hijacked by bad people  to mean something good where it is used only for bad but veiled by their names. hence they have mixed the bitter with the sweet poisoning peoples’ minds and bodies.

Jehovah has a law that is perfect and will bring back your soul (life) it is called love. loving him first and foremost is an obligation, not an option, loving your neighbor as yourself is continguent on loving God first for how can you love your brother if you don’t love God who originates this quality and put in it man if he chooses to cultivate it. how can you cultivate this love without his holy spirit which love is a predominate part of his personality?

but those who control science would like to deny this, use science to deny Jehovah’s existance, deny this godly quality of love that transends any evolutionary idea, goes beyond animalist survival skills. they would like to use science to prove he doesn’texist that man doesn’t need his direction to solve problems or that with time man will use science to solve them all eventually without seeing the that their ideas of solving the problems are exactly what is destroying mankinds godly qualities that are inborn. these godly qualities is exactly what is needed to solve mankinds problems,  this quality of love, humility, modesty (recognizing ones limitations)and recognizing this limited wisdom we all have just due to our limited time and vision, thus recognizing our need for Jehovah to step in and fulfill his orignal purpose, which without his intervention will never happen no matter how much science we have, that is a paradise earth where all are happy worshipping him because of love not due to any fear of punishment, without a gun to their head.

the sciences that should of proven to us that Jehovah exists and is a loving, intelligent, wise creator who has no bad motives or desire to be worshipped, but who desires us to worship him so we can be protected from physical, mental, spiritual harm, in our limited sphere of experience who need devine protection from deception.

science has been hijacked to blind people to these facts because satan himself exploits people’s ignorance about Jehovah and his purposes, and wants to use it to keep people in darkness. this darkness will appear as light to those who put full faith in science and those who carry the various names of sciences, professors, clergymen, politicians, physicians, meterologists and others, who wish knowingly or not to destroy the idea of Jehovah’s very existance and deny  any effort by him to restore what was lost. Paradise.  this thing called science was thought to bring this paradise back eventually, but alas has proven a dissappointment. paradise is elusive simply because man will never achieve it without Jehovah’s Kingdom rulership soon to take over the earth.
