Welcome to the unique universe of the Word Guru. If you sincerely desire the truth, you will experience a pleasant oasis of refreshment for soul and spirit through the power and beauty of words. However, those who cannot handle the truth or erroneously insist that their peculiar pseudo-enlightenment eclipses or nullifies that which God has so kindly allowed me to acquire, will experience any of these possible emotions: bewilderment, sorrow, resentment, anger, and hatred. Herein, you can find stimulation, motivation, and enlightenment; you will be subject to the results of my significant study, effort, and dedication to God, honor, ethics, morality, accurate information, historical precedence, and wordcraft professionalism. It is a literary adventure in commentary covering social, political, religious advocacy based on my solid relationship with Jesus, the physical manifestation of God for Man’s eternal welfare, as well as considerable study in biblical literature, history, politics, and business management. I am the sole author of all the material on this site unless I specifically credit another; however, that is rare.
Readers should realize that the call sign, “Word Guru” represents a spiritual and philosophical goal of discipline, reason, common sense, and honorable samurai service unto Jesus for the good of humanity, not an inflated sense of my own literary or philosophical prowess. I am positive that there is an infinite universe of writers with far more talent than I could ever hope to possess.
My commentary springs from a passionate belief that the issues addressed are of significant concern for Christianity and the protection and preservation of American tradition and society. I realize that many readers might experience shock and incredulity upon reading these works because the concepts, known to me for a significant period of study and contemplation, might be totally new and initially difficult to believe. Moreover, it appears that a significant number of those under age 50 have been literally brainwashed for a new mind-set and world view that discounts the importance of morality, rejects the precepts of God as dark-ages tyranny, and have forgotten or have never been taught America’s founding principles that are based on that alleged “dark-ages tyranny”. Therefore, though they are blind to these facts and are in essence, unwitting enemies of American values, most of these new age clones honestly believe they are the patriots and I am the intolerant, bigoted, ignorant, and hateful enemy of 21st century progress, freedom, and equality. Hence, I suggest patience for thoughtful consideration and refrain from speedy judgment. If one wisely allows adequate time for honest evaluation, it often paves the way for new and correct understanding.
I strive to expose the moral, political, and religious deception that is pervasive in our modern culture by boldly presenting my perception of the truth. I target the errant and immoral philosophies and practices of individuals and organizations, but responsibly refrain from vitriol, profanity, or personal debasement and attacks. However, that courtesy is unfortunately utterly foreign to most of those who respond to my critique of their error or moral corruption.
I believe that the basic inherent equality of all men and women requires the rendering of respect for their humanity and their status as the crown jewel of God’s miraculous creations. In addition, I subscribe to the philosophy and exercise of “tough love”. I believe the resort to abrupt, brazen, or intense confrontation is often necessary to open clouded eyes and hearts. Those who have invested significant amount of time in God’s program to cleanse their hearts and lives, and learn proper discernment between good and evil, must diplomatically reprove those who engage in or advocate erroneous or immoral philosophies or activities. But more important, because of the considerable deterioration of our society, we must encourage responsible citizens to engage in greater activism and awaken the latent goodness in others in order to inspire positive contributions to the moral and ethical healing and health of American society.
Please understand my intent: Gays, Muslims, politicians, etc. are basically all people worthy of love and compassion if they so choose it. I have adopted the philosophy of Jesus, who hates the sin, but offers love, compassion, and forgiveness for those trapped in wayward behavior and who desire assistance, forgiveness, or healing. Those who enjoy their perversion, subversion, or crimes and stubbornly refuse compassion or forgiveness only condemn themselves in that they refuse assistance from Jesus or anyone else. By rejecting the God of the universe, they will therefore pay a very unfortunate eternal penalty not found in the desire of Jesus or within my wishes as well.
All opinions expressed in this venue are based on the common sense principles found with the pages of the world’s most profound body of literature, the bible. However, I have a stringent aversion to much of modern church interpretation of that book of life. The established denominations and multitudes of wayward followers have unfortunately twisted biblical truth into misleading ideas and dogmatic rules of repression, intolerance, bigotry, and ultimate death. I fully agree with Thomas Jefferson who, though many from vague and ignorant assumptions accuse of being a Deist, was strongly influenced by the teachings of Jesus, the sound lessons of religious history, and the relevant, poignant social and governmental philosophy of John Locke, a staunch believer in God. Jefferson questioned the full deity of Jesus, yet diligently adhered to His sound biblical guidelines in his work as one of America’s great founding fathers by acknowledging God’s hand and sovereignty in the affairs of Men. However, he was appalled by the established colonial religious leaders like the Anglican Church who corrupted the life-giving water of the bible and seriously abused their power to the detriment of society.
Therefore, though largely unaware of it, Jefferson was the spearhead of God in the struggle to liberate America not only from England’s political and economic tyranny, but from the beastly oppression by religion as well. As a result, we have the wise and essential first amendment to the United States Constitution that prevents the government from establishing a religious monopoly or restricting any free exercise of any religion. Of course, there are those who, beyond reason, stretch the “elasticity” of our founding document, by claiming erroneously that the first amendment separates church and state to the degree that no religious organization may display their activities on government or public property. Or that a nativity scene must not be erected in the park at Christmas. Or that there cannot be prayer in schools, but it nevertheless stands as an essential benchmark for sound government when interpreted in the proper light that the founders intended.
Oh, by-the-way, if you see suggested links to blogs similar to my posts, they are NOT originated by me; they are generated by Word Press.
Therefore, with all that in mind, go for it. Take a tour of my world through all the articles listed in the right-hand column or on the pages shown along the top line menu.
