Who Knew? Dennis Quaid Loved Jesus And Cocaine… Great Story!

https://www.providr.com/dennis-quaid-hidden-struggles/

And The Tomb Was Empty! Happy Easter!

A Christian who is a former atheist, Dr. Josh McDowell was approached about being a scientist and now a Christian.

“Surely science and the Bible cannot coexist”, they would say. Dr. McDowell began sharing that it was his search to disprove the scriptures that actually led him to get on his knees and ask for forgiveness for his unbelief.

As an atheist he had gotten so weary of hearing about Jesus that he decided to once and for all put an end to the ridiculous idea that all scripture was God inspired and that not one word could be proven false.

After several months of studying the Bible and lining it up against science and history, he could no longer deny what he had been fighting all along; that it is science which is finally catching up to the biblical account of things.

In one of his many books , called More Than A Carpenter, he gives several scientific and mathematical examples of what he discovered.

One that stands out to me even 20 years after first reading it, is a stat about the odds of one man ( Jesus) fulfilling over 250 prophecies that are outlined in the old testament which Jesus actually fulfilled hundreds of years later. In order to relate it to his colleagues who also had scientific minds, he documents the following:

The odds of one man randomly fulfilling all the prophecies that Jesus did are 1×10 to the 17th power.

Or, In an illustration, he explains that those odds would be equivalent to stacking the entire state of Texas with quarters, and three feet high. If we had only one chance to select the one correct quarter out of the entire state stacked with them, it would be be the same likelihood that Jesus was NOT who He said He was, the son of the living God, one with the Father and the only way of salvation.

On this Easter I pray that anyone who has yet to come to belief in the deity of Christ read some of Dr. McDowell’s writings. Study for yourself this evidence that demands a verdict, so you too can rejoice that Resurrection Sunday ( Easter) is a sweet reminder of the security in salvation that all who confess Him as Lord have.

Happy Easter!

Diversified Church Is Where It’s At People ..Take A Peek At How We Get Down For The Lord..

People often ask me- what is the secret to a solid home church..so I put together a few clips from some services at my home church..it’s all about diversity..

50+ Countries That Visit This Blog ..Many With Giant Symbols Or Logos On Their Homepage , Yet When I Asked Who Was Unashamed Of The Gospel, I Have Under 20 Likes…Any Ideas? I Know You All Can’t Be Posers…

What would you say if your name was taken out of the lambs book? Would there just be a casual OK??

Https://dontlabelmykid.wordpress.com/2017/06/01/are-you-ashamed-its-a-yes-or-no-period-john-146/

Are You Ashamed? Its A Yes Or No. Period.  John 14:6..

I have made it clear that my blog is not a ‘ Christian ” blog. Meaning non- believers are more than welcome to be a major part. 

For this quick survey I simply want to know if you are a Christian , and are you unashamed to publicly say it. 

Do you believe what Jesus Christ said in John 14:6. ‘ I am the way , the truth, and the life. No man shall see the Father except through me”? 

If yes, like this post. If no, just pass. I’m curious as to how many true and hard core Jesus freaks are reading this.

 UPDATE-

So far we have had about 6 bold Christians willing to say “I’m not ashamed ” by liking this post.

Just for a little reality check ..

My stalker mini-series was a blockbuster ( for me) at 50+ likes…

So we only have 6 true believers? Tell me those of you who named your blog after some Christian theme, why are you out in this ? Just curious ?

The Eternal Tear From Heaven -tjp

A Tribute to  God

Hey Lord! (Nice Earth!BTW)

As a loving parent weeps over their wayward child, so it must be for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, who gave his own blood so anyone who trusted in Him would not have to.. Only to see his very creation worship itself.

Forgive us Lord for creating idols, cults religions and putting anything we can in your place in an attempt to escape the accountability of a father. How it must be to know that some of us will choose eternal separation from our very creator over your free and costly gift of salvation.

Maybe anyone reading these words be touched by your Holy Spirit even today– in a way that no matter how hurt, how hardened from the hideous prince of darkness that runs this place for a little-that they would know without a doubt that it is indeed you – that you have never moved,  but we have. That no matter what they have done or where they have been your forgiveness is available but by only one means-your shed blood at Calvary.

May all who have been wounded here on earth understand that you have been available all along in the valleys of darkness. You have promised Lord that anybody who seeks you will find you . You have said that anyone who believes in their heart and confesses with their mouth that Jesus is Lord- will be saved. You did not day ” might be saved” you said ” will be saved”.

wp-1483613256731.jpg

Thank you Lord that nothing we can do can ever make you love us any more, and nothing we can do can make you love is any less yours is an unconditional kind of love. an Agape- heaven type love- Thank you – Now please move in our lives Lord.

Amen &  Amen

If you agree with this and/or know someone today who is in a very dark place, shed some light into their world now by sharing the hope of the Lord with them. You just never know what may happen if they dont find any hope soon..

100% Guarenteed Best Parenting Advice -Period. If You Are A Parent- Read Now. I Doubt You Have Heard This…

 

I don’t recall ever being so bold as to proclaim that I have an answer that every single parent will find invaluable. I am going to put that out there today however. The reason is simple. I personally have lived it, its tried and tested and proven a winner in every venue I have worked in, lived in and taught in. Before I quickly share this, I feel under the circumstances I should at least give you a quick breakdown of my background in this area, so you know I am not blowing smoke from some Dr. Dobson book I just read.

My experience in parenting;

Live in foster parent to over 50 abused, neglected and very troubled teens. For over 4 years I had 6 living with me at a time, for anywhere from 7 to 12 months average. I was responsible to develop individual behavioral plans, treatment goals and teach social skills to each until they were ready to transition back into their home situation. In most cases I worked with the parents of the teens on parenting issues, planning and transition goals for both the parents and the teen.

Certified 4x by Father Flanagan’s Boys and Girls Town as a Family Teacher. I worked in the emergency shelter, group home as mentioned and in both boys and girls homes.

I was hired by the state, specifically the Department of Juvenile Justice to teach parenting to groups, and also lead groups to teens in the system.

I have managed/run several day programs, alternative schools for expelled youth, and while managing one school I was asked to train the entire teacher roster in central Florida on classroom management. Three counties worth, and using a skills and behavior management model that I developed.

The most recent alternative setting I was involved in was for kids who were expelled from public school, sent to the secure treatment facility for violent offenders-then expelled from there. I got them next. Sixty  kids from 8-18- many convicted felons. Gang members, one of which sadly was murdered one night after school near his home by a rival.  Within a year, using my own model for behavior and hiring a staff of 45 then training them, most were saying yes sir and doing well in school. Ready to transition back to public school.

I was nominated for Administrator of the year my first year- for that county. ( I hate awards and recognitions as I am not into it, and I am not in it for that). Nevertheless, my Executive Director made me attend the party at the Hilton Oceanside to announce the winner. I was the 2nd place guy, and the winner was a 20 year county judge who was retiring.

 

I also have 4 of my own. 2 boys -2 girls. Boys are up and out. My older son is in the Army reserves, a sniper/ weapons expert, full-time college student and full time worker as well. He took 30th in the nation out of 30k in 9mm marksmen and since then he has had many doors open, he chose military over law enforcement… ( he said he did not want to arrest his friends… : {  umm wait a minute, should I be worried about that statement, I remember thinking…what are his friends doing??? lol)

My younger son -19 is a professional bull rider and is currently around 20th in the world or so, and the current southern states champion in his circuit. He has made more money in the last year then I have in 10 years. I never made a lot, but when I was 19 I was begging for a 10 spot from my mom…so I am super proud.

My little babies are my heartbeat. 9&5 – I am not at all partial but I think they are at least in the top .0001% of cutest kids around….

wp-1483613316427.jpg

Ok, enough about my experience. It was necessary in this unusual scenario, for credibility but please understand I am not bragging at all. I am an imperfect man who has made far too many major mistakes in my lifetime for my liking.

As matter of fact the advice I am sharing now was birthed out of me being forced as a young dad, to either try to hide my problems and mistakes from my kids, put on the old happy daddy face and pretend I have it all together, or keep it legit, and lay it ALL on the table for my then young boys to absorb and possibly judge me on.

Let me reiterate one thing. There is nothing as a parent, even with the experience, training and degrees that I did long enough and consistently enough to call myself a role model parent and stick my chest out. Quite the contrary actually.  I grew up with a father that actually introduced me to all the WRONG things, and ways at a very early age that cost me many good years. Not blaming anyone for my problems, but sometimes I wish I would have had a decent shot at the starting line. It took, and still is taking me decades to untangle some of the crazy webs that have been woven in my brain since 6-8 years old.

My understanding of the value of women, the importance of choosing words carefully as you cannot “un-hear” -and that little issue of being fed alcohol while barely in double digits then not understanding why I was in withdrawals for many of my high school years really messed me up.

So it doesn’t really matter who caused what, or who is to blame. Kids don’t care. It is what it is to them. What you see is what you get.

Now, I will tell you what I decided. I decided to gamble. I laid it all on the line. Came clean with boys. Depression, addiction, everything. Yes, I felt like a loser at that moment. I would never ever trade it though. Never.

So the heart of the matter is this; You are not perfect. You will, if you have not already take a fall….that can become public to your family at best.. I can attest as the chief of all sinners that there is very little you can do to dance your way around, avoid, disguise, and evade issues that you know very well your kids will find out about or already know. It has NEVER worked in my 22 years as a parent and 25 years in this field.

The very best thing you can do for the respect and trust of your family, is come clean. Sit down and talk about what you are struggling with, what you are worried about, take ownership. Not just that though, you need to share your plans to remedy, and invite them to be a part, if appropriate. In my case, the first time I had a sit down of this type, I shared my on-going struggle with addiction to alcohol, and then revealed my plan to enter into an inpatient program.

That was the best move I ever made. Not only did I have a giant monkey off my back, but somehow my kids respected me more. Because of that dialogue many years ago, we have this open door, no fear deal which allows them to talk to me about anything without judgement, and me to do the same. Nobody can use my past struggles against me anymore because I chose to put it out there myself..

I don’t know who this is for , but it must be important to someone as it has been burning a hole in my soul all night to get posted. You may not have the issues I did, maybe its totally different. It doesn’t matter, because the point of this post is to share a golden parenting tip, a sure fire way to be a winner of a parent. It ain’t by being perfect. Because not one of us is. It is by being transparent.

It takes a real ego check to do. Its difficult at first. Then freeing. 

All the years in all the programs, and schools and group homes I ran that I had such great success with had nothing to do with training, or education. Those things came in handy down the road. However the secret to my success with any kid I have worked with or my own kids, is nothing more then honesty.

I have taken and taught and trained on every possible theory in behavior and parenting. They all have some merit. They also all have one thing in common.

None work effectively, without complete transparency from the adult first. Kids give respect when it is modeled for them. Not forced respect either. Not they are afraid you will yell at them or beat them respect. I mean genuine respect, which unlocks the door for all the parenting books and ideas you want. Until you have that, its like sucking air through a very thin straw..

 

Hope this helps. It works!

King of Kings and Lord of Lords…

Name above every name, Jehovah Gyra, prince of peace, savior, master, only way to the Father. ( John 14:6)

He is the Word, the Creator, one true God. Became sin for you and I that we may have ours forgiven..

The deliverer, redeemer and sacrifice for us. The lamb of God and maker of all. The way, the truth and the life.

Its hard to describe Him…

Catholic Church Pedipriest..Next Up?

http://www.neonnettle.com/

Now let’s expose the pedophiles in the catholic church. And dont make a comment unless you know the truth. I have proof. 

No Offers To Help From The Vatican Yet- Hmm . I CANNOT BELIEVE IT.

Check This Out- Heck We Could Work Full Time Jobs Forever Just To Shut This Down-

Go Big- Or- Go HOME!!!

Hmm-sounds fair. — Am I wrong here?  WOW-if it wont open I will fix- gotta go

 

Wow already 5 countries have hit me but sadly not Italy-

Oh, wait- that’s right they are trying to BAN police from knowing about any rapes. They promised to investigate- THOROUGHLY-

SCOUTS HONOR!- OH WAIT CANT USE THAT ONE-

You all have got me so fired up my blood is boiling – and I feel like I am waking up from a 20 year coma. When this whole thing is said and done — don’t go anywhere because you will never ever ever believe how all the pieces through the years have made a way to this day. Now it is the rubber meets road and I feel the need for SPEED!

I don’t know exactly how this will specifically unfold but I am telling you now so whenever it does I want you see- the rest..of the story all the way back. I mean you will freak out.

Thanks again-

tj

Romans 8:28 and Jeremy Camp- I still believe.

Those are the 2 things I spoke and listened to every day 20 years ago..that was just the beginning – and man I cant wait to see the ending.

ATTENTION! NEED JUST ONE MORE PIECE! LETS FINISH THIS RIGHT!

Thank you thank you so very much for re-blogging my brothers story. To my amazement this has taken it to yet another level, making it harder for the pedi-priest to slide out of this deal. I NEED TODAY this.

A consultant, businessman, investor, with some media knowledge and who is interested in what may become a very big and wide open investigation to include national syndicated talk shows and all media. Its sitting on the table.

I have not a minute for posers or anyone who has any other intention then to expose the ENTIRE CULT of pedi-priests in general. Of course after watching my brothers killer be locked up. It may involve books media and much else. I have spent 4 years writing about all this praying that one day this freak and others would be exposed.

Please only contact me if you have resources, negotiation skills with media and publishing and other. Financially you will never worry about your investment as we will do this if an agreement is made that is suitable. I can sell my book tomorrow and get paid because my brother is the one in this case involved. But why stop there? I have the connections to put national deals that would turn on a national spotlight long term on ALL these guys.

So if I find the right partner, we will go that route and hopefully make a HUGE dent in this ring. If not I will sell my own story, be happy Gondek is locked up and move on.

We can nab him- and thanks very much.

Or..there are these guys-

http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=picture+of+priests+being+arrested&FORM=HDRSC2&adlt=strict

Anyone else want to vomit?

 

That’s just the bottom line- me – right?? LOL

What is meant to happen will. Thanks to y’all who stepped up. It just took one and I am one step away from immediate and total focus on this. If I wait too long the next news story will get the chance I have. I have 24-48 hour window to at least solidify a partnership.  From there I can secure any national show I feel like it. That, would be awesome. So thanks and if you or someone in your crew that you trust and has what I need contact me 24 hours around the clock starting 6pm tonite. I will be lining up media as I talk to people and Y’all will understand if it works this way –

contact me by email or text first with any reservations-tjpetri16@gmail.com and text 386-675-7549- If you happen to know that you know that you know this is for you if you feel me -just call asap. Praying.

. If you already see and know and have experience in this and want in just call. I really just need a professional to handle all the negotiation and financials and things I don’t even want to know about. If you do your part the opp to pull in long term media to keep this crime exposed is also there. Its truly one of those one of a lifetime deals. The media has to stay with what is hot. Right this moment it is this. It wont be long.

Love you all for helping-
