Whose to Choose?

I noticed that Jim Baker has a new show.

I wonder who it is who gets these people back into their nitch? You know if it were 50 or 100 years ago, those people would be in seclusion... Who? I am talking about not only Jim Baker, but also Martha Stewart and O.J. Simpson and Michael Jackson. The most notorious.

Why aren't these people in hiding?

Why are they being held up so high in respect by others?

If I had done anything that any of those people did, I would be hiding in my closet praying to GOD to save me from my own self. Or rotting in prison.

How are these people able to hold up their head and not be ashamed?

Are they really that proud of themselves?

I am certainly not proud of them as Americans.

When we choose to do things that cause harm to others, or in any way is disrespectful to others, we need to be held accountable for our actions. How can these people get a slap on the wrist and say, OK, now get back out there and tell them how good you are. WHY?

I am almost ashamed of the way that my country has been so lenient on these people who chose to commit some horrible acts and then expect us to forget. I can still remember how Jimmy Swaggert cried and wailed about how sorry he was. I am still wondering, with all that closeness to GOD, how was he able to even step in that direction?

I don't want to be to critical of people. As no one is perfect. But all these facts prove one thing. Don't get to cocky... Don't think you are so good you can't be brought down.

I don't know if these men knew the scripture... "There is nothing hidden that shall not be revealed." didn't they read that part of their Bible?? I sure did.

NO, I am not perfect. I have my sin. But I am not cheating anyone or killing anyone or playing sex games with children. I would slit my throat and gough my eyes out with toothpicks before I would harm another human being. Oh, please don't twist my words and say that we shouldn't give out the punishment people deserve. I am a firm believer in the death penalty. If you can take a life, you should be willing and able to pay with your own. Unless in self protection.

Yeah, its OK to be mad... Yeah.... Go ahead and be mad. But don't kill someone over it, just because you can't control yourself. And sure, most of us have sexual urges... Some more than others. And I also am a firm believer that if you don't give your partner what they need, they will find it elsewhere. People are just like that.
*If I need to brush my teeth and I cant find my toothbrush, I will get another one. Its just the way we are. And then we justify it by saying... "Well my toothbrush wasn't there for me. So I got another." I know this is a silly comparison, but it is the only one I can come up with that my daughter could read and understand.*

So back to my original question? Who is choosing to put these people back in the lime light? I can see where Michael Jackson would want to move out of the country... And of course the people don't trust O.J. Simpson anymore, either. From what I understand, even his children suspect him.

Is it because Jim Baker and Martha Stewart did some time? And so we have to set them back up in their high positions? How much of the population wants that?

I know when you fall, the best thing to do is to get up and walk again... But to lead a people? Now, if you are fallen and you need help from your brethren to help carry you... you sorta fall back in the crowd and there is a new stronger leader.

What is that old saying? Screw me once, shame on you... screw me twice, shame on me?

Remember that? So, personally, I would rather have someone who is stronger as a man of GOD to lead me. How can someone point the way when his own way is hidden and corrupt?

I do believe that everyone deserves a second chance. I do believe in forgiveness. But, don't expect me to forget the lesson learned. I wont forget how weak you really were.

I don't suspect that ALL the people will actually accept this. I think that the people will make their own choice as to what they watch and what they turn off.

Some people say, "If you don't like it, turn it off," OK, I WILL! And I bet I am not the only one who does. That's why Michael Jackson wanted to move. And boy, did he fall hard off the respectable scale. I feel so sorry for his kids. But maybe they will be stronger people.

Are you wondering why I am saying all this? Well, because I, like most people am in good standing with GOD... Jesus is the cornerstone of my GODLY foundation. I have never mocked HIM or defied HIM. I know what is right and what is wrong. And I am able to see with my own eyes... And act with my own conscience.

I just wish someone would tell me, WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY THINKING?
