HEAVEN HELP US

Oneta 84
This is from my FB status five years ago.  Not a lot has changed, so I copying it to this blog.  Still under pressure health wise – the blood thing, so I’m not feeling “newly” creative.  I think it is worth your time.

Put this in your HEAVEN HELP US file. Right now I’m feeling like Paul when he said he was speaking for himself not God. (2 Cor. 7:12) So this is me speaking, not God.

1. A Nebraska school states that teachers should not call students boys and girls because those words are not gender inclusive. They are to use neutral terms like purple penguins. I guess purple is neutral, not politically incorrect like pink penguins or blue penguins and I must admit when I look at a penguin I can’t tell if it is male or female. So I guess purple penguin is neuter-gender all right!

2. For years, the oft repeated acronym for GRACE was/is God’s Righteousness At Christ’s Expense; a 21st century author broke out a brand new acronym for GRACE, God’s Riches at Christ’s Expense. Um-huh. Much more trendy. Many folks would choose Riches over Righteousness.

3. Do you suppose the widow who gave her last two copper coins, did so because she heard the “principle of giving.” ’Spose she was expecting return 30, 60, or 100%? Probably not.

4. If you give because of 30-60-100% return, does that make you a gambler?

5. Christians go to the casinos to just play games; no different than playing miniature golf and monopoly. I can handle ten cents for a bingo board, but $400 for an evening at Riverwind? So does that make me a partially sanctified Christian gambler?

6. I remember when church boards would not take donations from gangsters/gamblers/dog racers, etc. I didn’t understand that. After learning all I have learned about politics, I see how trouble might have developed.

7. Church pastor has admitted to having full blown AIDS and sleeping with church members. Imagine doing that with AIDS?  What!  It would be okay without AIDS?!

8. Is it okay to have a Heaven Help Us file? Enough of my ruminating. Some of my supporters might not be praying hard enough for me!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    This “gender neutral” thing is nothing short of insanity. The same people who vilify religion for not being based on fact, but on the spirit, are the first ones to ignore the science behind XX and XY. If you see what happens when there is XXY or YYX or other combinations, you understand that there’s a reason that XY and XX work better. People with the extras would rather not have the additional problems that go along with it.

    • oneta hayes says:

      My thinking exactly. Is there any more basic scientific fact regarding the human body than XX and XY? If you can’t count on that, why stand with science at all?

      • floridaborne says:

        I like to call it selective hypocrisy. 🙂 All the times we’re told, “That isn’t scientifically valid,” but then when we point out that gender neutral isn’t scientifically valid we’re told, “fact is not always truth.”

        • oneta hayes says:

          Reminds me of Biden’s statement “we choose truth over facts.” 😀 Now days I guess that is possible since many now talk about “your truth” and “your God” as if their is any other.

  2. Do feel better my dear friend— and be it years— such as 5 years ago, last week, or yesterday your words and observations are most timely…sadly

    Get well soon Oneta. I did pray for your early recovery but as you know the old bearded guy does not listen to my prayers😭

    Your Heaven Help us! file sounds like a good idea.. So much which passes some as ‘acceptable’ is anti-Godly and offensive to me. It is happening now more than ever. TV programs, newspapers, magazines etc etc. Not to mention such of the fake stuff which is ‘deception’ in its worst form. Yes a file to put them all away sounds good to me.

    • oneta hayes says:

      My problem is that I keep stuff in the file without praying enough about it! Trust and pray. God is in control. But deception is rampant! Thanks for your concern and prayers for our nations.
