To answer questions and comments people have asked, here goes….
WHY ARE YOU ANONYMOUS AND DON”T USE YOUR(OR YOUR KIDS’) REAL NAMES OR POST PHOTOS?
There are a lot of unscrupulous people on the InterNet(incl. pedophiles trolling for victims!) so this is one reason I never give out too much personal info about us and never use the kids names or put up their photos.This is why we don’t give out our exact location either; there are lots of crazies out there and you can’t be too careful!!We are also private people that safeguard our privacy to a certain extent.As for myself, I don’t like the way I look and hate having photos taken, so no way am I going to display it out there for the world to see!
WHY ARE YOU AGAINST ABORTION AND HOMOSEXUALITY?
Abortion is murder; it is the killing of an innocent and defenseless unborn child. God clearly states in the Bible that both murder and homosexuality are grave sins. It’s that simple.
SOME THINGS YOU SAY DON’T MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE A VERY “NICE” PERSON YET YOU CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIAN. ISN”T THIS A CONTRADICTION?
No, not really. Just because someone is a Christian doesn’t mean they’re perfect.It means they are faithful and obedient and try their best to live righteous and clean lives according to God, but I’m human; I’m a sinner( we all are!) and I have my flaws, faults, weaknesses,struggles, troubled relationships,hardships, emotional “baggage”,scars,etc.. just like anyone and everyone else.No one’s “perfect” and Christians aren’t holy perfect people up on pedestels; we’re human just like everyone else and we still make mistakes .I put it all out there, holding little back,being honest, as this is my blog; it is about my life, my thoughts, what’s going on in my life and in my family and world,and it’s NOT always good. It’s a way to vent my anger, to express myself, and like “therapy” in a way; it’s very cleansing and releasing.
WHY ARE YOU SO AGAINST ENVIRONMENTALISM?
I agree that we are stewards of all God has give us dominion over(the planet,animals and the like) but what I have a problem with is when people put the earth or animals before human need. It has also become so off-putting,; in-your-face propaganda and mandatory indoctrination everywhere, foisting it on everyone, and people have turned to worshipping the creation and not the Creator; it’s become nothing more than pagan nature worship and the New World Religion.It is idolatry; a false religion, and turned so far away from God. I agree we shouldn’t abuse our resources, but we shouldn’t give them worship that is only due to God, either.I fear it’s corrupting the Pope now as well and will lead to the Great Apostasy in the Church St.Paul warned about(and Our Lady of Fatima did as well) in the Last Days…
WHAT IS YOUR ISSUE WITH VATICAN II?
I think Vatican II(the “New” Mass) was a bad idea; the traditional Roman/Latin/Tridentine Rite was truer to the Gospel; more respectful, correct, and had a richer liturgy. Now the priest faces the people when he should have remained facing the altar; he is offering the Mass to GOD, not to the congregation! It is more respectful,and Mass is not a social club; it is worship to God. Latin is the traditional language and shouldn’t have been changed. Communion rails and kneeling to receive the Eucharist on the tongue is the correct way,and only priests should be able to distribute it; not lay-persons. Altar BOYS should not be altar GIRLS; what next; women PRIESTS,too? Our Lady of Fatima had warned the rubrics of the Mass was NOT to be changed, yet that is exactly what happened, causing much confusion, dissent,and even defection from the Church. God does not change and neither should His worship.The “New” Mass is watered-down, full of error,and more suited to the people instead of keeping the focus on GOD.
IS YOUR FAMILY LIKE THE DUGGARS?( conservative Christian homeschooling family with 18 kids.)
No; they always seem so happy, so perky, so “perfect”. We are nowhere near that! I really admire that family, but we have only a few similarities; such as a large Christian homeschooling family.We do shop in bulk, use coupons and buy second-hand clothing like they do, but my kids fight all the time, they can be selfish,rude, mouthy,disrespectful,tease eachother, and be mean,just like any other kids. We are just a regular family in that sense. We try our best to raise a godly family and I think considering we are doing well; none of the kids are out there having sex, getting pregnant, taking drugs,smoking,drinking,in gangs or in trouble with the police, so I guess we’re doing a pretty good job, but they’re still kids! The oldest finished his first year of university and the second-oldest will be starting in the fall,too, so it’s a testimony to the success of homeschooling as well, but we’re not “perfect!”
