Pro-Gun-owners are islamophobic and fearful????


I agree with many of Mayiim's videos, and she is right about the pressure of being a minority in a predominately majority this and that culture.  It is a pain the heart.  The crooked ways of the Nazi were to find EVERYONE that had Jewish or minority DNA heritage.

However, the human heart is deceptive, hence, the video given above.  I also do not support a lot of gun-ownership or go crazy about "pro-life" issues if people don't consider the fact that people WILL have weaknesses......they simply can't have many children and/or use guns for self-protection (due to beliefs, benefits or otherwise).

I know that many in the LEFT in the political spectrum happen to call any one who speaks out about violence from "muslim extremist" (and supports the CRAZY stuff Trump said about them) will get called out as a "bad white terrorist" who is "islamophobic" which also makes them "anti-semetic"!!  Ok, way to jump to conclusions!.... when in fact, some of the people (or their ancestors and relatives) may have some minority heritage and history of some sort....or even dwelt in ISLAMIC majority countries for a while.

We can't completely eliminate ALL danger in this world.  There are violent men who brew even in the nursing homes, even though their entire life everyone thought they were a "peaceful man."

Creating a "religious" or "illusion" version of -PEACE- (via gun-control policy that takes self-protection measures away from EVERYONE or calling everyone "islamophobic").......simply won't bring true everlasting peace.  Just get that correct, and you will FIND the source of TRUTH......the HEART CHANGING TRUTH.


All in all, it is this: You can have ALL this world (and its false religious stuff...and ideas)....but give me JESUS!



DO Be cautionary about speaking of others!  There are DIVINE repercussions.

Online "flirty stuff" vs. Predatory behavior.....

Considering that Charlie is over the age of 18......the conversations between adults can get a little ..... saucy sometimes.  Online and offline.  A person will find this quite often on celebrity channels.  If women and men talk "saucy" like this in their marriage.....their marriage is likely to be a BENEFIT to their life and the lives of others.


It is NOT a bad thing to have "attractions".......  Even married people can be attracted to others they are not married to.   I believe our creator WANTS us to see QUALITY in other people.

But if it is done "secretly" behind a person's back (like a committed relationship).....someone, somewhere IS going to get hurt.  A couple that works off of each other will TRUST each other.

Relationships with family or "non-saucy" friends will be your best bet on determining the -level- of appropriate vs. inappropriate behavior (where you or someone else could get hurt).  The more you TRUST that reality, the better success.  Modest behaviour and actions (online and offline) are a good safety measure in general.  But if a person is STRICTLY modest, that can come off as "unloving" and not wanting ANY social benefits.  In fact, it can be anti-Christ or anti-biblical!  Yes, it is the SILENT treatment that proves a man doesn't know to whom he is encountering and dealing with (various "good" socially appropriate priests and pastors.....found the Jews in Nazi Germany and came after them to send them to concentration camps!  So it was the "politically correct" dudes who were the BAD GUYS!!!!!)  The bible says let brotherly love continue!.......


Yes, there are online-predators.  Be aware of those types.  OFTEN times they DO NOT want others to know about your "connections."  Yes, there are cases of Gary Weinstein.  Any man that says to "keep quiet" about something is a sign of a man with questionable character.  Also, getting or receiving too much "rated-X" content is a bad choice!  Especially if you have never met this person face to face.....even if they only live 1 hour away~!~  Just plain risky and immoral as a whole!


Essentially, "attractions" are not bad, and do not mean that a person is a predator.  Kinda like you are the "celebrity" and someone admires something about you.  They are not out to get you, unless you WANT to be vulnerable to something.  Just be wise and know what is too much information online and what is being hypocritical to reality of the need for more brotherly and sisterly love.

***DO NOT talk to children under the age of 18 in a "saucy way" or allow others under 18 to talk to you that way~!~~!!!~~~***  If they are "pretending" to be 18 or you are unsure.....simply do NOT allow it to occur!  You could get in trouble.  NEVER ever.  Same goes for people in the situation of being a "vulnerable adult."  A person doesn't know if someone online is in an institutional setting for a reason.  The computer doesn't show you EVERYTHING about a person's lifestyle and conditions.

Yes, 18 and under may create some pretty funny songs from time to time!  Just laugh and move on.  They do grow up eventually......they have to face the same trials we all have had to go through as far as relationships are concerned.  A person always HOPES that the children learn to approve of cleaner and careful behavior in relationship(s).  A bible helps with that even today.....online and offline.


A person can "sit-down" and consider what is appropriate and inappropriate conversations: 
Humour or "flirty talk" or "political correct/non-political" or any other manner of conversation.....for YOUR protection and for the protection AND encouragement of others....  Note: NOT saying something, in a silent treatment way, can also be a BAD SIGN (unless there is distraction and interference)......if you have already established that you are willing to converse with someone for a while.





****

People LOVE to false accuse others ......for no reason.  Don't bear grudges from your past....and don't assume you can't be LOVED if you did make supposed "mistakes"....



This topic is important because.....to be a "good" homemaker......it is only GOOD to be LOVING....else it is just being a "homemaker" with bitterness brewing left and right.  A woman who comes and goes and is never married, yet stays clear of bad communication, is BETTER than being a MARRIED woman who holds such bitterness in the heart. (Pro_30:23  For an odious woman when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress.).  So keep the kindness-talk brewing!

Crypto - Levant - Cousins.

The future of the children lies in understanding that we are all descendants of Noah.....

However, some don't like the idea that some -cousins- of the future children WILL have ancestry from the Levant.....both biologically related a LOT of it and a LITTLE of it and.... through kinship (a cousin's cousin).  Assuming that all the world can be formulated to fit into a way that is not biblical or morally accurate is a plan that the ENEMY has established....

So I would say, if a person has "fears" of conservative Christian viewpoints....including the KJV bible thumper or the Messianic Jewish person and all things in between......they are BLIND leading the BLIND.  But the children know that by playing the fool, all people end up injured in the process.....so respect is the KEY.



Read the article about the Crypto-Jewish folks.

Reading the book of James (The Jewish Christian/Messianic church in Jerusalem) and knowing the bible verse about whom Mary the mother of Jesus participated in prayer with:  (Act_1:14  These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.) SHOULD help eliminate many of the false assumptions about differing religious values.  .....  Jesus' mother prayed with JESUS' brothers.....the kinship AND family connection.

We fight a battle...... it is NOT against flesh and blood.... it is against principalities and darkness in high places.


*****Note: SOME PEOPLE do not KNOW they have JEWISH heritage or cousins......*****

*****Note: some people do not KNOW that the RED SEA was actually DIVIDED by creator redeemer God****



He is the one that moves the HEART to do what is right:


Variety of tones....leads to beautiful sound...



If you don't feel "love" from a biological family..... try HIS FAMILY....it works!


Its ok to be a little "secular" too.....positive message is the KEY!

My children's -cousins-......



Ok.

So on my father's side of the family and on the majority of my husband's side of the family..... most of my children's cousins will look like NORWEGIANS.  More specifically....they would be American Norwegians....


On my mother's side of the family....they will look and act like these teenagers.  I always thought that we had a lot more German ancestry, due to a common "German surname"....but the DNA test did not show that....maybe I should try a different company, but I don't really want to because that just gives away more information of my children's DNA to strangers.  Somehow I think the English ancestor's have some "indian" heritage in it.....who knows.  So even some of my second cousin's look like these guys.  



In the middle of the MESH of cousins....some cousins have variant "minority" ancestry.  I don't really think it is necessary to ASK every one of your cousins to evaluate who has minority ancestry from a DNA sample...and who does not have minority ancestry.....how much of this DNA ancesrty etc.  (like the Jewish ancestry trait is considered a minority on a world-wide scale).  In fact, I think if some cousins are a little "shady" in their moral character, I simply would NOT tell them your ancestry or your children's ancestry right out.  Because some people just simply take the -drama- that comes from the Levant in the wrong way.  Unless, a person really wants to reveal to them these things, like a youtube video or something....then that is by choice.



Now considering that my children have 5% minority ancestry...... the reality ends up being that my CHILDREN's first and second cousins.......and beyond actually look more like the folks in this common "american" music video.  Due to the reality that a variety of "diasporas" moved to variant countries around the world.   This would include.....blood related....and non-blood related.



So anyhow.....when a person wants to get to the ROOT of the FAMILY TREE.....it is this.  We are all obligated by our creator to treat our fellow man with kindness, respect and goodness.   Of course there may be some family members that don't "get it".... but that will be the way it is.

I do not believe in "drinking" and "smoking" in order to get along with "minorities".....no.... I believe in biblical truths.....even from the time of Noah.

Indian ancestry vs. "Indian" ancestry.....


Note: I have explained how we took a DNA test in our home to determine ancestry and it is apparent that there is in-fact Native American ancestry in our home.  I ALSO have relatives who are within biological 2nd cousin range, some of whom I grew up around (NURTURE), so I notice the middle-eastern features in man/woman/child much more readily than a person who doesn't have such relatives.  Another family member took a DNA test and that family member does in fact have JEWISH ancestry in the DNA, but didn't grow up around the JEWISH culture.

I don't think that there is anything wrong with ANYONE because of their ancestry/heritage.  That is a CRAZY idea from HISTORY......and I hope it stays in HISTORY!

I love all family members!

There are other family members that have African-American ancestry (through in-laws).....but that is a topic for another day.  I don't think it would be right for me to talk about this aspect of humanity suffering if I didn't grow up around it.

****

Both the singers in the video above have ancestry that is NOT 100% white.  Which is also apparent in their features.  If they are in the third or fourth generation removed from their ancestry the features wouldn't be as apparent, but they would still be there.  There is no "gregorian calendar" that can make a person 100% white, by time energy and space engineering, even if they are mostly white.  It is like telling the big-dipper to look like the constellation aires....the location and features can't be interchanged.  Can a person tell the eagle to behave like the raven?  No.  The creator made the features unique.

From time to time the Latino (south american) culture can get lumped in with the Native American culture and features, due to various things.  Perhaps some misunderstandings.

Anyhow, if someone says, or family rumor says, they have "Indian" ancestors, a person could be talking about the country of India (which is a country in the middle east), or they could be talking about "Native American" ancestry, which is anything from the Caribbean into Mexico to  Alaska.  All share features that is apparent according to their culture and DNA.  BUT some people CAN get confused and not KNOW what their true identity happens to be!  So don't judge them on that!

The Jewish ancestry has a definite "tone" that would make a person know what a person is talking about when they say they are celebrating the Holiday of Puriim. and rightfully so, because of heritage. It is a definite "middle eastern" holiday and has definite "middle eastern" history associated with the holiday.  Within the book of Esther, the country of INDIA is mentioned.  So the "indians" participated in this event historically.  Ravi Zacharias has very middle eastern "nature" to his features and definitely has "Indian" ancestry.

The languages and culture of the actual NATIVE AMERICANs is totally different than the INDIANS.  They may not be as "academically inclined," not because of "laziness".....but because of desire for making the CREATOR happy, instead of MAN happy.  Happiness comes from good character in accordance to what the creator requires from man, not from "educational" achievements particularly.  The NATIVE AMERICANS did go through a serious "genocide" problem because the "white man" wanted to turn the Culture of the people over into more "western features."  The people from INDIA, did not go through this issue unless they moved INTO Germany or "white man" areas during the time of people judging people and persecuting people based on their ancestry.  The people of INDIA have more tendency to associate and even LOOK like Jewish people as some Jewish people have married and lived among people in INDIA for a long time.

The Native Americans can get "confused" with Asian cultures by language features.  A person from the "Philippines" and who knows Filipino, may assume you are talking in an "Asian" language if you are actually speaking in a "Native American" language.  The "Native American" language was not allowed in the "school systems" during the boarding school era because the schools were determined to "westernize" the Native American children.  People from INDIA ARE allowed to speak and read in their own indigenous tongue so long as they are not persecuted by "Muslim" extremists or other religious extremists.

Essentially, the FALSE sorts of Christianity ended up persecuting the Native Americans AND the people of middle eastern decent (anything from Jewish people to people from India) in some way or another, but the style and type of persecution was different.  One moved INTO the indigenous lands and messed up the tribal way of life, the other assumed that person of a certain heritage is ineffective in building up the "good" of society.

******

All in all, the issue of Native origin, and issues of life, isn't resolved entirely by one's DNA......it is only resolved by REDEMPTION.

A person of Jewish (middle eastern) Ancestry can commit crimes against humanity just like any other man.  Money seems to be the ROOT of it......to keep people "quiet" about various crimes.  (This is why we NEED the bible....so people KNOW the story about what happened to Tamar.....then fruit is actually the feeling of LOVE.....)



 BUT a person's DNA and heritage can make people suffer variant forms of persecutions, bullying and other sorts of misunderstandings in this world.

A person of middle east decent can have fairly high "language" skills and awareness, but inside there could be something missing.  They may assume that this or that will fix this issue (money, sex, drugs etc), but in reality the CREATOR gave the redemption.



The language and expression of the Redeemer may sound different from the way things are described by the people from Middle East.....

The lessons from the RAVEN.....vs. Darwin's finches.

I think these stories about "the Raven" are a way to show WHY the bible happens to mention this particular bird.  Nature is symbolic of many things in the bible.

The Raven is particularly mentioned in this bible verse.....perhaps FOR a reason "Gen_8:7  And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth."  Especially considering the behavior of the RAVEN.  (the bible OFTEN admires certain behaviors while FORBIDDING other behaviors)


https://www.facebook.com/ScienceNaturePage/videos/1314636422001946/?hc_ref=ARQb7xQiGLH_7uz9mkBug8BKFDlIrq3wlYN81HgJsSW8mm4yLLNLmiGdFBM3gtSoN1I

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIzHCUBPpgc

the human mind is coordinated to deal with lessons from nature......this is our INDIGENOUS nature.  God wanted the EGYPTIANS to learn some lessons from the plagues perhaps.

The bible itself mentions NATURE symbols quite frequently.  The plagues, Noah's Ark (raven is mentioned), The animals mentioned throughout scripture and so forth.

There are other animals that are not mentioned in the bible, but still symbolize various spiritual lessons.  The whippoorwill (has a specific egg laying cycle based upon moon phases), the buffalo (herds and things can teach some lessons on valuing peace and safety from the creator), the turtle has a specific number of squares on its back to represent changes and number of moon cycles in a year.....

In general, Darwin tried to propose the ideas of evolution from finches.....but the reality is that the RAVEN and the CROW is still with us, and THIS is by LAW of divine design.

I don't understand how a person can actually "believe" in Darwinism (Darwin was a spoiled man), because if it was actually true for there to be "natural selection," any male relatives of mine would have to purposefully murder me or my children, simply because they have "stronger features" in some area than me and my children have in themselves.  Darwinism leads to genocide-style thinking and reasoning for humanity......which isn't good.  Hence "levitical standards" for relationships are found in the book of Leviticus.  Also, the "short people,"  even within families,  would have to be murdered by the "tall people" in this world in order for Darwinism to work appropriately.....because the tall people are "stronger."




When people observe "people" as if there is a hierarchy thing going on....they are really not aware of the SPIRITUAL truths behind the mask.  We humans are designed to function on the EARTH through gravitational pulls, and physical/chemical changes.  The bible itself mentions "giants in the earth"......so the "line up" thing is a lie because those "giants" were at one time a part of the grand design, and there IS evidence for "giants".  Variations in height differences change only a little bit in some communities compared to others.

To be the most accurate when it comes to survival of the "human race".......don't trust mere -men-..... Trust in the LORD.

How accurate are the DNA testing sites???

Ok.  I took this test for my daughter because there are "holes" in my husband's side of the family.  He did not grow up with his father, and he does look "mexican"....... BUT when a person talks with his dad, he reveals that he is from French-Canadian ancestry including Native American Indigenous tribes.

So I will tell you this.

I know at least 50% of my DNA is Norwegian (This movie is fairly accurate about behavior of Norwegians).

This is true for my husband as well.  These results seem to be quite accurate in many respects as far as pinpointing the majority of your DNA ancestry.  The results were a little higher than I would have expected, but they were still gave a high percentage for Norwegian ancestry.

However, there is something "funny" about the Latin Americans no one tells us.

It is that the Latin Americans are of mixed decent from time to time.  They are not all 100% Mexican so to speak.


People with DNA from "mexico" or "indigenous america" could have more detailed results like this:



I know that my husband has Native American ancestry.  He even appears as if he can blend in with "the Latinos."  When I had my daughter take the DNA test, I would have expected about 1 or 2% Native American ancestry.  Surprisingly the results showed 5%!

Then I also expected the DNA test to show about 10% German and maybe even a little "middle eastern" .... like "India" ancestry.  It turns out she only has under 2% German type of ancestry.  My German ancestors left Germany around or before WW1 so I would have expected this number to be higher!  Also, I know my husband's grandmother has German ancestry! (Hitler (listen around 47 minutes and it reveals leftist flaky attitudes)......had absolutely NOTHING to say apparently...)

So anyhow, these tests may simply be a way to "make money" but then lump people into categories, based on a general "scientific" belief of who people are.....NATURE and NOT.....NURTURE.

I am thinking some of the Latin-America DNA that my daughter has......is more accurately determined by looking up actual family trees and talking to cousins and family members.

Essentially, the 5% Latin American DNA that the test results show......could be anything else like "middle eastern/north african" or other "non-white" DNA and it won't really tell a person that.

I know that I have 1st cousins and 2nd cousins on my mother's side of the family that look like these guys......And that is the side that says we have the "Indian" ancestry.......now does that mean "Latino ancestry" or what??????



I don't know, if you want to take the tests go ahead, but don't put 100% faith in them.  Consider that bible is more adequate for the "soul" (tracing our ancestry roots) as it teaches people who are having "family problems" to "trust the LORD" instead of throwing knives (racial tensions) and needles (gossiping and assuming things) around.  The children are the ones who suffer the most of these tensions.


Anyhow.....how much DNA do you need to have in order to qualify as a "minority," or one who suffers because of ethnicity..... surprisingly the "educational class" called Elizabeth Warren a "minority" and she supposedly says she has 1/32 = 3.1% minority ancestry!  But she doesn't even offer the population ANY evidence that she has minority heritage or conditions!  To me and my children.....who HAVE evidence (and some family members who also have evidence) that they have some sort of minority heritage, this IS an insult.  As Ben Shapiro says it is....then it is.

Sometimes folks may get the different minority groups "mixed up" assuming that all are of the same tribe.... My husband has the Dark Hair......and the beard.....but his hair is straight..... The guy singing in this is a look-alike but his ancestry is a little different.  Both indigenous people and Jewish people have gone through similar suffering....


*****

Study the story of "Hanukkah" (which Jesus participated in this event according to the bible)..... one will find similar suffering among indigenous people.... Hence, I find comfort in knowing different things biblical and historically of the Jewish people...



*****

well.... for humour in all of this....
