Forgiveness By Minister Speed


All of us living and breathing have experienced some very troublesome episodes in our lives. As an African American, I personally have either experienced some very hurtful things first hand, or had a very up-close view of others go through some very hurtful things. Bitterness is a choice, just like forgiveness and love.

I truly believe that one's ability to properly assess and handle "harsh" experiences stems from their spiritual foundation.

Though I am a Christian, I have in times past struggled with the root of bitterness, and I did so for many years until I realized that I was the one in bondage. As a result all of my blessings and gifts were being held captive and in hostage.

While these other people, who'd hurt me, some intentionally and some by accident, were still living their lives. When you don't forgive someone, it is just like carrying around a dead body, with it being attached to your very own.

Can you imagine the stench, the smell, the public perception that others have, from watching someone walk around with a dead body on their living body? Now, take a minute and imagine it being a multiple number of dead bodies? 

Eventually the decaying flesh from the body or bodies begins to be saturated into your own skin, which eventually enters the blood stream, and affects every vital organ in your own body? Now to anybody with any amount of intelligence, that would be crazy and scary to watch someone walk around like that.

Out of love and deep concern for the person doing this, I personally would approach them and ask some serious questions, in hopes that it will make them see the insanity attached to what they're doing and how they are "living".

The root of bitterness must be dealt with by the individual.

This of course is going to require a lot on honesty with one self. Something that I'm finding now a days isn't popular. People actually would rather deflect it off on others, so that their nasty side isn't seen. Choosing avoidance and no interaction with certain people because of their need to feel validated.

It really is a sad reality for that individual because they are in such a state of bondage and it feels better to be able to not deal with themselves.

Oftentimes prayer really is the only thing that you can do for these kind. They are the kind who attract the wrong kind of people to themselves, end up being or feeling victimized, and then turning around to validate why they are bitter. Many people miss out on rare chances of happiness because of this very deep seated issue. 

Many people choose to remain bitter, even once apologies are offered from others who have possibly "grazed" an area of sensitivity. It's not the apology that these bitter people are really after. It is the feeling of power and control. Even if it puts them on the negative end of spiritual and life energies. Having the feeling and fulfillment of power and control doesn't have to come as a result of holding others hostage. It isn't fair or rational either to make everyone else pay for what someone else has done.

If you are finding it difficult to automatically give people a clean slate, upon first meeting them and getting to know them, then you are bitter. If someone you've known for a long time has apologized for something they did or said wrong, and they have not repeated the offense, then you are bitter. If you can't seem to form healthy new relationship with new people, without bringing up the past, then you are bitter. 

If you can't let go of offense after a certain amount of time, then you are bitter. Deal with it! Before it deal with you, by manifesting itself in your health, finances, emotions, home, job, marriage, and other relationships and activities. Cancer, diabetes, migraines, insomnia, muscular disorders, blood disorders, and heart attacks; all of these can and often are the result of bitterness.

Ask yourself, is bitterness worth having this much power and control over my life, my mind, my will, my emotions, and anything else that I place a great deal of value upon. And most importantly, is it worth your time. That is something given to us as a gift from God. And since when have we become greater than God, and can steal and rob His time, to be bitter with His creations? 

Have a blessed day.

AMERICA...MY RANT OR A REALITY? By Minister Speed


Do you really think that the sedated masses in this country will ever have cause and motivation to make any real changes?

NO!!!


Politics has become a sort of football to many. They cheer for their team right or wrong and believe what a politician spouts simply because they agree with that party. The truth is that politician is just saying crap to get elected and start on their career to be a duplicitous lobbyist to give the greatest return possible to those that hire them. Given the current system of ‘tons of money’ to get elected I don’t expect any changes from those politicians who claim to want or make CHANGE.


I told a friend that the entire system was corrupt because ALL politicians (Dems and Republicans) work for the same people – the super-rich and I’m burning my voter registration card because it is worthless!!!


The 1% of the truly rich of this country are slowly setting the United States up for a fall and once the United States falls it will no longer be a super power, and will not be able to be a police state for the world. Then the USA will fall into place just like all the other countries that we now control. It won`t be long now so get ready…..


The United States has been meticulously targeted, infiltrated, and subverted in a gradual process – by a certain world elite OLIGARCHY…..
I don’t think even the greatest leader in the world can fix the problems of a country filled with frivolous, narcissistic fools. Conversely, a country of strong, resourceful, enterprising people with values won’t need much leadership as they will solve their own problems.


Are we mass-deluded sheeple?

YES!!!

Super ultra-delusion Number 1.

“Kids don’t learn to be drugged out, violent, slutty, or inappropriate from watching TV or video music/ games featuring the same”. This is the purest example of cognitive dissonance you will ever hear. Anyone with a brain knows that kids absolutely, from the day they are born, learn their place in the world by mimicking. 


If you put a kid in front of a TV or Xbox 6 hours a day and show them gang and gun violence or a whorish attitude, THIS IS WHAT THEY WILL DO! And the proof of that is our current reality. But of course the TV is the delivery vehicle for so many delusions so we can’t have people resistant to it now can we?


And what about the 40 hour workweek?

We see that once Americans HAVE money they squander it or give it away willingly but unwittingly to thieves. But what about how they make it? I commuted to work every day 150 miles for years. I saw daily incompetent people who cannot even grasp the rules of driving, completely on autopilot, and trudging en masses to what is effectively adult daycare. I worked for a leading educational company. 

 Yet even there between the coddling, political kowtowing cutthroats, and decision driven data making, 90% of our workforce was just there to be babysat. They get to make up their own goals, then get a nice pat on the head if they accomplish 2 whole mundane tasks in 6 months. I have had many jobs, all with the “best/leading” companies in my respective fields, and all I see are adult children with no real drive, no real creativity, and no ambition beyond getting to check a few mundane tasks off a checklist so they can get today’s gold star and be a “contributor” in their own minds. Then it’s back to Facebook :).


This is why perhaps the greatest delusion of all, that we are a productive people. Witness Firestone tire’s legendary breaking of the Rubber Workers’ Union growing in Akron Ohio. For literally years, fat, unkempt, poorly groomed men sat on the side of the road, leaning against walls and newspaper boxes lazily waving signs demanding premium wages, benefits, spotless factories, and of course lots of paid days off. And none of them was enterprising enough to just go pursue a different better job.


They were willing to waste years of their life waving signs demanding something they didn't deserve from someone who wasn't going to give it to them. And they didn't even have the motivation to stand up straight to do it. 

It was the picture of shame. If we ever brought all those outsourced jobs back from China, they wouldn't get done as well if at all. We are delusional for thinking we are our parents and grandparents children. We’re not. We have become a lazy, weak minded mob of entitled freeloaders waiting to be lied to because it’s just easier that way. Any belief to the contrary is the greatest delusion of all. Sad but true.


I propose eliminating the Federal Reserve, breaking up the 6 Too Big To Fail banks into 60 Too Small To Matter banks, outlawing corporate lobbying, eliminating the IRS, getting rid of the tax code, term limits on politicians, a balanced budget amendment, cutting the military in half, and going to a currency backed by gold, silver and a few other commodities. 

These solutions would put a little crimp in your desire for the US to police the world.


First we have to end control of our money by the private Federal Reserve Crime Syndicate. The US dollar is a fiat currency so why is the US in growing perpetual debt? Because the US Treasury prints Treasury Bills & Notes it has to sell to the private Fed in order to get dollars, so every new dollar printed is a debt instrument. Second we must repeal both GATT and NAFTA. Repealing both would begin the return of domestic mfg. to the States allowing us to once more export goods and stop being a big fat spoiled CONSUMER BABY with nothing to give back!!!!


Third we must demand that ALL TARP funds, which are not $800 billion as incorrectly mentioned but well over $21 trillion be returned immediately. This money which has been secretly allocated to banks without disclosure should then be applied to pay off every mortgage and credit card balance in the US. This would not only help real people but also help strengthen banks that want to operate honestly. We must revere the planned concentration of money in the hands of the top 4 or so banks.


“The American public thinks they are rugged individualists, who come to conclusions based upon sound reason and a rational thought process. The truth is that the vast majority of Americans act like a herd of cattle or a horde of lemmings.” Delusional Americans all over the country believed in the new internet paradigm… You would think that average Americans would have learned their lesson after this experience. They did not. Based on all available evidence, it seems the American public wants to be misled. They have chosen ignorance over knowledge and understanding.


America resembles a 40 year old aging baseball icon with two bad knees, a pot belly, receding hairline and delusions that he is still the ball player he was at 24. He doesn't realize that his skills are shot, as he flails at curve balls in the dirt thrown by 21 year old kids. The rest of the league knows he is washed up, but he refuses to accept reality. The American herd has gone mad. A few people have regained their senses, but the vast majority still exhibits the behavior of sheep being led to slaughter. 

I'm not trying to tell you what to do Lord, but please come quickly.....
