Help for Haiti

I have to admit that I am soooo bothered by some of the comments coming up on Facebook and other places, by bitter people who think America should have no part in assisting the people and country of Haiti.  Where does this bitterness come from?  I was telling my friend a few weeks before the earthquake in Haiti, that Americans are a bunch of pigs.  We are..there I said it.  The average american lives like Kings and Queens compared to other countries, yet some are so selfish in lending a helping hand.  I have heard some say -

"we have enough problems in our country and we just need to take care of ourselves.  Let volunteers go over there, not our military.  We have orphans here in America too, we need to take care of our own."

Forgive me if I am wrong but I simply cannot understand this mentality.  If an earthquake would hit their home tomorrow, who do you think would be crying out for help then?

And then there are the orphans and the disabled. Who is helping them? I think about the kiddos over there that have Down syndrome.... who is watching over them? If a tragedy would happen here and we all passed, poor Ashlyn wouldn't last long. She has no self help skills and would be an accident waiting to happen. She doesn't have a clue as to being safe and can't be out of our sight for long. What is happening to people like her in Haiti?

All I can think of is what Jesus would have to say about this bitter attitude:

And one of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?" Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' "The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." (NAS, Mark 12:28-31)

Okay so honestly, I know Jesus did not just mean your next door neighbor when he said "love your neighbor as yourself". He meant love other humans, even your enemies. He wants us to reach out to fellow man in time of need. We all need to be Jesus to the people!! I just pray that hardened hearts can be made whole by our Lord through all of the tragedies that we face. Reach out to others in time of never might you who needs help from fellow man one day!

Watch this video and listen to the man who lost his wife and children in the earthquake... what a heart of God he has..... wow!

U.S. hit Haiti with Earthquake weapon

Thank you

Hugo Chavez Mouthpiece Says U.S. Hit Haiti With 'Earthquake Weapon'

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Hugo Chavez blames the U.S. for the devastating earthquake in Haiti.

The United States apparently possesses an "earthquake weapon" that set off the catastrophic quake in Haiti and killed 200,000 innocents. Don't believe it's true? Just ask Hugo Chavez.

Citing an alleged report from Russia's Northern Fleet, the Venezuelan strongman's state mouthpiece ViVe TV shot out a press release saying the 7.0 magnitude Haiti quake was caused by a U.S. test of an experimental shockwave system that can also create "weather anomalies to cause floods, droughts and hurricanes."

The station's Web site added that the U.S. government's HAARP program, an atmospheric research facility in Alaska (and frequent subject of conspiracy theories), was also to blame for a Jan. 9 quake in Eureka, Calif., and may have been behind the 7.8-magnitude quake in China that killed nearly 90,000 people in 2008.

What's more, the site says, the cataclysmic ruin in Haiti was only a test run for much bigger game: the coming showdown with Iran.

The ultimate goal of the test attack in Haiti, the report reads, is the United States' "planned destruction of Iran through a series of earthquakes designed to topple the current Islamic regime."

The story has since been taken down from the Venezuelan Web site, but a Google cache of the charges remains intact.

The publication of the story came just days after Chavez himself accused the U.S. of using the earthquake as an excuse to "invade and militarily occupy Haiti," a nation so poor that its entire economy is based on foreign aid - particularly from the U.S.

"The empire (the U.S.) is taking Haiti over the bodies and tears of its people," he said at a press conference.

"I read that 3,000 soldiers are arriving, Marines armed as if they were going to war. They are occupying Haiti undercover."

By week's end, some 16,000 U.S. troops are expected to be providing humanitarian assistance in Haiti, where they have taken control of the only working airport and are coordinating relief efforts on the ground.,2933,583588,00.html

We Know Gods Truth through Gods Commandments - Daily Hope

by Rick Warren

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 2 Timothy 3:16 (NLT)
If I discover truth from the Bible, how do I know the Bible is true? There's a world of objective evidence, both external and internal, that says the Bible is true.

External evidence proves the Bible is a historical book that you can rely on. There are 5,366 copies of the Bible dating from the time it was written to just 70 years afterwards. That fact dispels the urban legend that the Bible was changed as it passed through generations and languages.

External evidence also includes many archeological discoveries. For example, historians used to say that Solomon couldn't have had the horses the Bible says he had because no one had horses at that time. But then thousands of horse stables were found in an archeological dig.

There's also the internal evidence of the Bible itself. In a court of law, a prosecutor with two or three eyewitness accounts has a good chance of making his case. The Bible is filled with eyewitness accounts. Moses was there when the Red Sea split; Joshua was there to watch Jericho fall; the disciples saw the resurrected Jesus.

The internal evidence of the Bible also includes the fact that it tells one story with consistency - though it was written over 1,500 years on three different continents by 40 different authors from every walk of life. No human being could account for that. It's an amazing example of God's abilities.

The Bible says, "There's nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or anotherĂ¢€”showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us." (2 Timothy 3:15-17, MSG)
