The Tradition Of The Sabbath

SabbathThe Sabbath is a day set aside for the benefit of Man: however men take the Sabbath too far and abuse what it is intended for the Biblical Sabbath is a day of rest or time of worship given in the Bible or more specifically Genesis, as the seventh day. It is observed differently in Judaism and Christianity and informs a similar occasion in several other faiths. It is the other Faiths that we are truly interested in, for our arguments. You see the observation of the Sabbath may not be isolated to the Jedaho-Christian culture. If this is true it may help to prove biblical events like the Tower of Babble. To find commonality in the Sabbath add other traditions, we must first ask which other faith traditions practice the Sabbath much less what day they observe it on. Did you know that Islamic, Buddis, Zoroastrianism, the native Americans, and even the Babylonians observe a day of rest. Now that we have spanned the globe we also must quest why some sects of Christianity feel that the day is important? The traditional Sabbath of the Jewish community became law in the days of antiquity. Many of these traditions have been adopted by Christian sects, such as the Seventh Day Adventist. However the meaning of the day of rest has not been lost, although it may have been vastly distorted. I feel that I should be reminding my readership that Jesus himself said that, “the Sabbath was created for Man, Man was not created for the Sabbath” (Mark, 2:27).

I hope you are doing well. What is it that you or a friend could use help with?

We all can use a little help time to time: however you may want to ask some basic questions before you receive that help.

  1. Is the help you are asking for truly going to benefit you in the future? You may want to find out if you can do the task on your own before you ask for help.
  2. What are the motives behind the person helping your? We all want to help others or even be helped, but we must avoid co-dependant relationships.

Wether we are looking for help or we want to help someone, co-dependantcy​ is a real problem. Look at how people tend to get angry about how the Welfare system is keeping us down.

The Liberal tends to feel that those of us who are on Welfare is a justifiable expense. While those who get to pay more taxes because we who are on disability can’t or will not work, tend to resent paying for the up keep of freeloaders.

On the other hand, we who are the recipients of said assistance tend to want to resent being on in it, mostly because we know how others feel about it. I have a unique prospective because I have lived on both sides of the fence, regarding this issue. Now it has become my mission to help both sides understand where the other is coming from.

Miracles on the Sabbath

Did you know that every miracle that is recorded that Jesus performed was on the Sabbath? We all know the stories but many overlook the fact that the act was always performed on the Sabbath and the Sanhedrin was always angry about it.

For those who have not figured it out, Jesus was a Radical and every chance he got to put the government in their rightful place was taken advantage of. You see the Jews had their “oral law” and this law was later put in written form and is called the Mishnah. The Jews had built a hedge around the Sabbath with their “oral law” in which they were trying not to break the Sabbath. The reason they did this was two fold. Years earlier they had disobeyed God by profaning God’s Sabbaths and worshiping idols and God had them carried away into the Babylonian captivity for seventy years (Ezekiel 20:23-24, Jeremiah 25:11.)

After the Babylonian captivity the Jews became very strict and did not do any idol worship from that time on. In order not to break the Sabbath the Jews created their “oral law” (Mishnah) and the largest tractate of the Seder Mo’ed deals with the Sabbath. Chapter seven has a list of thirty-nine chief kinds of work that are forbidden on the Sabbath. Some of these laws involve: sowing, plowing, reaping, baking and even extinguishing a fire. So you can see the they went a bit overboard.

When Jesus was old enough to know right from wrong he began to teach in the Temple, so the Jewish government understood that he knew the law, but just because a man makes a law does not mean that God the father agrees with it.

When Jesus was chastised for healing a crippled woman, he called the so-called authorities, ‘”Hypocrite!” Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it’ (Luke,13:16)?

The truth is, Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath and that makes the Sabbath the true “Lord’s Day.’ In performing these seven Sabbath miracles, Jesus is showing us how to keep the Sabbath. He emphasized the humane element of mercy, compassion and loving-kindness by healing and “doing good” on the Sabbath. He showed us that we are not to be “hard hearted” as the Pharisees were when it comes to the Sabbath. We need to keep the Sabbath as Jesus did by worshiping God and “doing good!”

We must remember that Jesus reminds us that the “the Sabbath was created for Man, Man was not created for the Sabbath” (Mark, 2:27). If we all kept the charitable nature of Christ all week and showed the love of Christ to our neighbours, there would be no need for government assistance.

Life Is What You Make Of It.

We have all had our ups and our downs in life. This last year was filled with them for me. I have told my readership about my getting divorced from a woman who identified herself as being in mentally ill. Well there in lied the problem.

Year the 7 years that I was married to Kansa I saw her go in and out of the hospital for mental issues yet I never once heard her to tell people that she was doing well or that she that stable.

It was as if she refused to try and get better. It didn’t help that I was watching my vision fail and​ an addiction to Porn on my part was not being addressed to her satisfaction. But her filing for divorce put me into a depression that almost took my like. I thought of Kansa a my best friend and she lost the love that she had for me, but some how with God’s grace I worked through the pain and found that I would never be happy until I stopped counting my worth as a person by what is in my heart and not what others think of me.

Last year I way sick as any one could get without finding his or her grave. I was told I had Cancer but the truth was no one could figure it out. Two months after Kansa left I was offered a chance to truly get well. Dr. Coffee, my PCP at the time tested my blood for Pretoria. I tested positive.

Now I stay out of the sun as much as possible and only take jobs affer dark. I draw a pint of blood once a month to counter act the overload of preforian in my blood. Life is better although I miss Kansa. I live in the middle of nowhere and live of the land with my new wife. I do all of the work of the day before sun up and sleep during the day.

Solar plannels provide power and Metro PCS is our one monthly expens. Kansa through me away and I rejected people as a whole. Still these are my preferences and my readers may not agree but this is who I am and I love my life.

We have church functions and cook together. Kansa never wanted to learn to cook or even help most of the time. Meanwhile, Darlene seems to enjoy cooking with me. Kansa always wanted dogs and I bought her a pitbull the day after she went to the hospital. I wanted to surprise her but I ended up returing the pup. These scares will heal with the help of the blood of Christ.

Thanks to my friends and family, a long with the atonement, I no longer feel trapped in my own skin.

How Does Religion Disrupt​ Government?

People love to say that religion and politics don’t mix. Well to date I have been given a rather harsh reality check. As my vision fails and I am forced to entertain getting on public assistance, I am seeing some validation to the liberal’s arguments and I must admit when I am wrong.

My stand against public assistance came from my personal need to reject any assistance from an entity who turns people’s back against God. But much of my opinion came from people who have been forced to pay others to be lazy when they are working their fingers to the bone. But out here on the frontier the people who need help, need it not because we are lazy but rather because we have no other choice.

But a one-sided relationship also known as a charitable relationship could be extremely destructive. Co-dependency tends to harbor resentment from those who are dependent and those who are providing. My Ex-wife, Kansa and I had a co-dependant relationship. Through most of our marriage I was working to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. She was on public assistance when we got married and she lost it shortly after she got married, because I made too much money. I got sick and she had to go to work. I as soon as I got well and she checked into the hospital and filed for divorce. She was told that as long as she is married she will not qualify for assistance; just to get back under the umbrella of public assistance. It seems to me that the government hates the religious institution of marriage because it helps people break from underneath the thumb of our oppression.

Religion in general teaches people to be self-sufficient and when the largest employer in America happens to be the Welfare system, there should be no questions about why the government needs you on welfare. Just think about how many people would be unemployed if we did away with it.

Anarchy Empowered promotes true charity that comes from the heart and offers ways the help the person in need  to become more self-sufficient. We believe that education and motivation are the key for a healthy and productive future.

Many of the mental illnesses that keep the Welfare system strong could be removed forever if we as a nation would stop promoting them. Every time Jesus preformed a miracle he called on the person receiving help to do something on his or her part first. If the cripple did not try to stand, he would have never known he could walk.

Our government hates religion because it gives a sense of empowerment to oppressed. Meanwhile I still feel safer walking down the street with a white cane and not because I can’t get around but because it helps drives understand that I may not realize that I am in an intersection.

My name is Anthony Antolic. I founder Antolic Enterprises to help others realize that what the world calls a disabled American is simply a labeled person who may choose to live life feeling sorry for his or her self or learn to get passed the limitations that the world puts on us.

I am Anthony Antolic. I am blind as the world labels me, but I am not defined by my cane. I am a son of God. An earthly son of my father and mother. I am an uncle and a brother. I have a loving wife and a passion for inspiring others. I am also proud to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints and reject the will never of Man’s political nature: for “The natural man is an Enemy to God and should be put off” (Mosiah, 2:9).

Government opposes religion as a whole because sin is big money. Look at how much money and influence Vagas has on our economic landscape. Drugs, Alcohol and prostitution feed the carnel nature of our natural man, so what does our government do? They make it legal and put sin taxes on the products. Marriage and strong families are grounded upon by the elect because strong families have kids who are less likely to become welfare dependant.

A Hand Up Means You Give Back

Today we went to a food bank in a nieghboring town. This Helping Hands Network was started by Elizabeth Killeta, after her husband died over 20 years ago.

The organization is unique in that they ask for donations from the same people who are receiving help. I am sure you have heard the old saying, “charity bigins at home.”

The fact is that is someone has become so needy that he or she is not even willing to donate $5.00 for the program that keeps food on the table for them, that person we’ll have an even harder time making the life changes that are needed to make a better life for ones self.

Let me give you an example of two individuals who have adopted a mindset of entitlement. Both of them had been in automobile accidents in their youth. Both of them find ways to make other people do what they feel they don’t have to do. At different times in their lives the two women both used a wheelchair to gain simpathy from others. Don’t get me wrong I use a blind cane to help me get around and I know that driver’s tend to be more careful  when they see the cane. But this is different.

Both of these women tend to prey on the simpathy of others to get through life. I work a full time job and don’t ask for anything more than what the need of the ministry may be. The $5.00 donation that the Helping Hands Network asks for helps but food for the community that makes the donations. The group hand to reformat the in 2009 due to a lack of funding. By asking for donations from those who receive the help the Colton food AKA the Helping Hands Network has been able to stay afloat.

In many ways the Donations represent tything and a respect for the community that has worked so hard to stay afloat in the hardest of times.

The sick irony is found in the fact that the liberals who cut founding for programs like this due to the Christian roots of the program are also the largest demographic of recipients. By almost 90%.

The Most Famous Anarchist of Them All

SadduceesMost of Christian faith tradition loves to ignore one extremely important fact.

Jesus the Christ was an Anarchist!

Is this a heretical statement, or is there truth to it? Like our mission statement says, “that we are redefining the role of charity in society.” The reason this redefinition is important is a kinn to the scripture passage the we know as the cleansing of the Temple.

If you think about it and be completely honest with ourselves, everything Jesus did was detected as a objesct lesson towards the Sanhedrin, which was the Jewish government of Jesus’ day. Every merricle that Jesus performed was on the Sabbath and within ear shot of the established authority.

Jesus taught love and charity which contradicted the judgemental nature of the two political parties that ruled over the Jewish people. The Pharisees and Sadducees both had an undeniable thirst power and the way Jesus was teaching people to lead their own lives contradicted and even threatened their positions. As a result a Man who never set out to harm anyone was placed on a cross to be suffocated in his own blood.

The government convinced the common man to hate and kill both the teachings of Jesus but his following as well. It was the mob rule of Democratic Systems that put the most famous anarchist in the history of civilization to death of a cross.
