Whistle Blowing – – or Self Entrapment?

In today’s society Whistle Blowing is referred to quite often. Mostly it relates to government when an employee notices an act or suspicious occurrence and feels that he should report what was seen. In many states, it is mandatory; you report, anonymously, what you have seen to the appropriate law enforcement agency and they will follow with an investigation, IF it is felt that one is warranted. Failure to do so could result in a charge of “withholding evidence”, usually a misdemeanor, with a heavy fine and up to a 1 year prison sentence.  

However there could be certain circumstances that could backfire on the “reporter”.

Living and Dying

(Editor’s Note: Previously shown on  the KingsWay Ministries site).

flowersFor some reason there have been a number of deaths and subsequent funerals after the first of the year and especially since the start of summer. This “trend” always brings up questions and doubts. Hopefully the following article will be able to shed some light on this situation:

Living & Dying

(Reprint from a previous posting on KingsWay).

Some of the most concerning (and objects of worry) are the questions of “how long will I live” and “when can I expect to die”? We all know of babies who, for some reason or another, die shortly after being born or after just a few short years of life. Yet we also know of some who live into their hundreds of years. So, what is the real answer to these questions?

Well, the answer can be deduced from Bible passages. After the fall from grace of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, they were suddenly in a barren desert to fend for themselves. As part of the “curse”, they were also expected to produce children, primarily to help them to survive (helping hands) the demands of life outside the Garden.

As time went on, more and more children populated the earth. At first there was no “limit” to one’s age; many of the people of those early days lived several hundreds of years. Methuselah, the oldest recorded life, survived to the ripe (?) old age of 969 years.

Perverted English Language?

DunceI was NOT the brightest candle on campus while in high school. Most of my contemporaries knew that. And, my worst subject was English (that’s what we called it back in the Stone Age). I could barely spell my name much less tackle conjugation and all that other stuff. So, I finagled my way out of those classes and substituted Glee Club or Home Economics in place of English (and Math).

Much to my chagrin, in the 53 years of gainful employment, nearly ALL my jobs required me to know and use Math and English!  So, in order to survive in those fields I had to self-teach myself, since as a dunce, I didn’t avail myself of those very subjects that were taught in school. I managed to come through okay. Still it was a substantial struggle.

Having established the groundwork, I feel that I need to address some issues that I have and still am exposed to in today’s society – few people use correct English – in speaking and in writing!
