Bible Verse of the Day – 1 Peter 1:7-9

Verse-of-the-DayBible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

1 Peter 1:7
7 “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:”

Our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His promises is far more valuable than gold. Though we hold fast to our faith it is and it will be tried by fire. I think today it is being tried on an individual basis, we all face challenges in life, but I think looking at the big picture our faith will tried in the days ahead.

OSHA issues guidance on transgender bathroom access

WEB Notes: Forget the issue of homosexuality in this country for a moment. The entire transgender issue is absolute confusion. Special rules for people who want to change who they are? It is very simple and I want to spell it out in case we have someone who is confused in our audience. If you are born with a penis this means you are male, if you are born with a vagina this means you are a female. People need to stop twisting their reality upside down and then forcing that on the rest of us. Your sexual desires and feelings should be kept to yourself, you do not throw that on someone else.

(Source: The Hill) – Transgender employees should have access to the restroom that corresponds to their gender identity, the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) said guidance it issued for employers on Monday.

Iran’s Nuclear Stockpile Grows, Complicating Negotiations

WEB Notes: They did not suddenly grow since last night. This is just a wrench they want to throw in to “complicate” the nuclear negotiations. Remember the Brookings report? If Iran jumps one hurdle than the next one will be set higher until they can no longer “comply”. We posted about Iran refuses inspections of their military bases. That most certainly sounds unreasonable to me. The US would never agree to such a thing itself.

(Source: NY Times) – With only one month left before a deadline to complete a nuclear deal with Iran, international inspectors have reported that Tehran’s stockpile of nuclear fuel increased about 20 percent over the last 18 months of negotiations, partially undercutting the Obama administration’s contention that the Iranian program had been “frozen” during that period.

Supreme Court unanimously gives a victory to banks at the expense of bankrupt homeowners

WEB Notes: Some people made bad decisions and bit off more than they could chew and some used their homes like an ATM card. Right or wrong there is a bankruptcy system in place to help people through this. Not anymore with respect to the second home loan. Now if you claim bankruptcy you are still stuck with the second mortgage. How about that! Now if you were a bank and on your financial death bed you would simply petition the government and be granted trillions of dollars from the American tax payer; ie: the guy who could not pay his mortgage and had to go bankrupt. Am I the only one seeing a problem here? Who is this benefiting? The banks.
