Welcome to I AM for You!

My goal is to share the love of Jesus that he has shared with me.  

Love does not condemn people, but love does condemn that which harms people, known in the Bible as “sin.”  These actions I am against, not the people doing them.  My life was sinful when I met Jesus.  I denied it.  And spent ten years under His wrath while He humbled me.  When I admitted my sin and accepted Jesus my life changed.  Now I am not sinless, but I do sin less.  I still fall short and need His forgiveness.

Join me as we discuss Jesus, Mental Illness, and the combination of both.

 

Jesus said my responsibility to my mental health clients is more important than keeping my job

Pi (the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter) hasn’t changed since the beginning of time. Convoluted thinking has shown up throughout the ages as well.

Pi . . . ?

What?

Let’s back up a little.

When feminists in the 1970’s claimed that women were just the same as men, just different sex organs, the scientific community subsequently proved them wrong. Women are just as VALUABLE as men but they are DIFFERENT. So, what if a man says he is in the wrong body because he thinks like a woman? Women’s and men’s brains are structurally different. Women have more connections between hemispheres. Men’s and women’s brains are functionally different. Men’s thinking works front to back of the brain and stays in one hemisphere longer (than women’s thinking does) before jumping to the other side. Women’s thinking is usually 3/4 forward from the back of the brain and jumps between hemispheres frequently. No man has thought like a woman. No woman has thought like a man. Their brains are physically and functionally DIFFERENT.

Men can think they think like a woman. They can FEEL they think like a woman. But they really think how a man thinks a woman thinks. Not how a woman actually thinks.

Hormones and scalpels can make a woman LOOK like a man. But she’s still a woman. Hormones and scalpels don’t CHANGE a person’s sex. Hormones and scalpels only make COSMETIC changes.

People that claim to be the other sex are in my opinion not dealing with reality and I will not reinforce their error by calling someone a man when they are in fact a woman.

That gets us caught up.

What about Pi?

The value of Pi (as far as can be calculated) was mathematically proven (Pi = 3.14159 . . .). Someone decided that it wasn’t proven to their satisfaction and so they “proved” Pi = 3.2. And, they decided to put the force of law behind their error. Below is the story.

The content of the above link sounds familiar. Men and women were proven to be different from each other decades ago. Now we have people who have a “better” idea. They disdain facts and want to force their FEELINGS on those of us dealing with reality. They seek the force of law to force everyone to bow to their error. And if the law won’t do it, pressure on businesses will do just as well.

The reality, the facts, the truth is that MEN ARE MEN and WOMEN ARE WOMEN. And, intimidation from the Left doesn’t change that fact.

I was a professional mental health provider, a Michigan Certified Peer (of the Mentally Ill) Support Specialist. I told my employer I would not call a man a woman. I said I would not because I was a follower of Jesus and I would not lie to my client. And, based on my own former experience with mental illness and delusions I would not reinforce a client’s detrimental delusion.

They fired me on the spot. Knowing this would probably happen I had cleaned my desk out the day before. The director walked me out of the building.

Now, to deal with the possible response from the Left. I don’t hate anyone. I disagree and act on that disagreement by loving others by telling them the truth. I tell my kids, telling the truth is harder at the start but is best in the long run. There are many who are now permanently disfigured and are regretting what they have done and wishing someone had told them the truth while there was still time.

Their untreated belief in a lie has become a very difficult irreversible reality.

Even though it cost me my job, Jesus told me to tell the truth. Why? Because He cares about protecting the hurting and the vulnerable and the exploited.

What is Jesus telling you?

Jesus is new wine . . .

14 Then the disciples of John *came to Him, asking, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast, but Your disciples do not fast?”
15 And Jesus said to them, “The attendants of the bridegroom cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.
16 “But no one puts a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear results.
17 “Nor do people put new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”

  • Jesus Christ, Matthew 9:14–17 (NASB95)

Mourning is not needed for those in the presence of Great Joy (Jesus). And after fasting and mourning the loss of the presence of Jesus He returned to stay at Pentecost, in the Person of the Holy Spirit.

Fasting doesn’t fit someone who has had all their sins forgiven, their old heart of stone removed and replaced with a heart of flesh (that wants to do God’s will), knowledge they will live forever with Jesus living inside them, and more…

The old practice of fasting (old wineskins) cannot contain the new Life Giving Spirit of Jesus (new wine) at work in us who have been transformed by Him. Jesus prescribes new practices (new wineskins) for His Presence (new wine).

We the People . . .

We the People . . . Our purpose is justice, our ally is truth, our method is unconditional love. We seek to preserve the Constitution, to stop tyranny, to promote Freedom. We value your Character, we don’t judge you by skin color, language or wealth. We strive for Equal Opportunity while not trampling rights to produce equal outcomes.

Among our heroes are Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jesus Christ.

 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said,

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.”

Daily we see the fruits of “evil triumphant” become apparent. Crisis upon crisis. But we have Hope. Faith. And Love. Because with Jesus: “right . . . is stronger than evil triumphant.”
