Silent Killers

10/14/2017:  Silent Killers are an action taken that unknown to you has stopped a relationship, a business deal, or any other of a hundred endeavors. It is silent since you do have any awareness of the problem you created.  You cannot think of anything your did.  Your act certainly was  well intended and well motivated.  However the result certainly was a surprise and unexpected.  You cannot figure this out.  You did not have any awareness that for the listener what you said or did was a big deal. The silent killer manifestation may be a simple as calling someone and for reasons unknown to you they no longer take your phone call.  It may be as simple a response that a person you regularly did things with is not longer making themselves available to play golf, go shopping, out of lunch or to the theater. So I regularly inquire of myself and the Lord, “Am I creating any silent killers?” This is in contrast to all the obvious things we do to offend others or our acts that are our own worst enemy.  In these cases we ask the other person to forgive us.

For Your Discernment

9/18/2017: This is for one’s discernment. The #1 thing on the Internet in last few days is the September 23rd potential event. I just listened to this presentation from the Biblical perspective that I think is worthy of one’s attention. It is about prophecy.  I believe it is a balance presentation. www.daystar.com/ondemand/video/?video=5576273544001 Start by fast forwarding to the 19 minute mark to avoid the preamble.  I goes on to 58 minutes. If nothing more it is the educational on various Bible prophecies, yet without any pronouncements or day or hour. However, we as Christians are to know the season.

Is it not more than social justice?

9/2/2017: Is it not more than social justice?  The cry for social justice today is an incomplete banner for the mission. I was reading where I saw that the Lord God of Israel was for righteousness and justice, but also mercy and truth. This is written in Psalm 89:14; Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face. The plea on the banner to be lifted up should also say the following: Societal Righteousness: This is so foreign that it not only is interesting idea, but truly absent. Societal Mercy: Have you seen this lately? Societal Truth: When was the last time that was prevalent? However, these three are absent from the conversation that should be permeating our society.

“and now you know the rest of the story” video of recent lecture

9/1/2017: I have posted in YouTube a lecture I was invited to give to the FischBone Society of sport medicine orthopedic surgeons.  This group of surgeons were mentored by David Fischer, M.D.  Dr. Fischer holds an annual meeting and asked me to address the group on “What Really Matters”.  I made an attempt to record the audio, but for some reason that failed.  So I have made a video of the PowerPoint presentation and repeated the audio of the lecture.  Unfortunately the audience reaction is absent.  Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWbRisrzrxo to see and hear this lecture having the theme made so popular by Paul Harvey, “and now you have heard the rest of the story”.  I relate natural events in my medical career and my life mentors influence therein.

What in the world is going on? Have you seen any of this?

6/19/17:  As we wonder what is the world is going on, we can ask have you seen any of the following? Perilous times. For men shall be lovers of their own selves Covetous Boasters Proud Blasphemers Disobedient to parents Unthankful Unholy Without natural affection Trucebreakers False accusers Incontinent (lacking self-restraint; uncontrolled) Fierce Despisers of those that are good Traitors Heady (rash) Highminded Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof What should you do? “  According to 2 Timothy 1-5:  Run, and from such turn away.” And what time is it?  The answer is according to the letter to Timothy: these are signs of the end times.
