Making Time to be Social…
While I realize that most of us are Already stretching the limits on our Daily Allotted Time Schedules, I also understand that Outside Forces tend to Tie-Up the Time we would have used to accomplish an important task. If you are building your Online Business using Social Networking and Social Media for FREE Advertising… then Social Networking should be part and parcel to your daily activities. It is Human Nature to Procrastinate. However, it is also Human Nature to Make Time for the things we Want To Do… instead of the things We Ought to Do. Am I right?
Bible study is a vital part of my daily routine. But by the evening, I often catch myself pondering whether I had completed this task or not, on any given day. After all, if I don’t exactly remember what I studied, then I need to go back and study more intently, even though I have already firmly structured study time into my schedule. I have many things that I Need to Accomplish, but it often seems that the world has conspired to remove any residual “Spare Time” I would usually enjoy… Anyway;
I am of the opinion that an Affiliate Social Networker, Business owner or Minister, should spend at least 20 to 30 minutes per day just networking. An hour would even be better. If we can “Make Time” to enjoy a Starbucks, go window shopping or download more ring-tones that we don’t really need, we can certainly fit an extra few minutes into our schedule for networking. And don’t even get me started on Television Network viewing… have you taken time to Notice how New Networks are catering to Niche Markets, there is an Affiliate lesson to learn in there… but my point is the wasted time we spend viewing nonsense on our favorite TV network.
As a Social Networker, you should be spending a little quality time, just being Social. Not Marketing, Not Advertising, but Just Being Social. Yes, it’s important to build our social marketing and buyers lists and it’s important to share our Links (if we expect to earn some cash), but most important is to Make Time to build relationships and just communicate with our friends, followers and subscribers. How can people Trust the Links we share with them, if we haven’t built a relationship of Honest, Simple, Transparent Trust?
Quality Network Time also allows us to see Topics, Trends and Niche opportunities that we totally miss out on, if we are not Making Time to be Social. Also keep an eye out for Points of Interest while commenting, posting and chatting. What my uncle had for lunch may be of no interest to 99% of the network, but it may be important to me, especially if a savvy and subtle Affiliate posts a Link to a great deal on an Ultimate Cheeseburger… you never know what opportunities may present themselves when you are more social on the networks.
Once we learn about the Affiliate Gold Mine inside Social Networks, we are always in a hurry to build our Network of friends and followers, but what good is a bunch of names without the character that comes with them. When I watch certain Affiliate entrepreneurs posting (spamming) link after link to Twitter, I often wonder if our culture has actually lost the ability to be social. There are so many distractions in our present culture. How can we be a good Friend, who also happens to have a good Business, if we are too busy to attend to the social needs of those friends?
Life is about balance and harmony. Making Time to build strong relationships with friends and family, even at long distances, is made easier with the use of modern technology and social networks. But be aware, the same technology that makes relationship building easier, can also Trap us! The average family today, spends very little quality time together. With Mom on Facebook, Dad watching the Tube, and kids in their lair all multi-tasking on iPods, video game consoles, other social networks, etc…
Americans need to regain our sense of community. Make Time for real Social Networking, the way our grand-parents knew it. Take Time to build Family First… then Make Time to Network.
May God Bless our friendship,

I feel a sense of urgency as I write this article because many Christians are Overwhelmed and Confused about “Gay Rights” and the “Gay Agenda”.
My sense of urgency stems from the fact that, in past generations, our children were never asked to Make a Choice about being Gay! Most people are reluctant to talk about it, but when we were young, we may have tested the limits of sensuality… with members of the same sex present or even involved. Does that mean we are Homosexual? OF COURSE NOT!
According to the Bible, being Gay, Homosexual, Cross-dressing and Transvestism are all just Bad Lifestyle Choices that lead to Bad Consequences for everyone involved. This is Not a subject that belongs in our children’s classrooms.
Do “Gay Rights” issues Really have any Business in an Elementary School Classroom… Have Christians Already Lost the Battle for “Gay Rights”, along with the Minds and Hearts of our Children?
Beware! How many times does Jesus remind us to “Be Aware” of dangerous Ideas and Philosophies that Always bring about Spiritual and Physical Destruction? “Beware the leaven of the Pharisees…”, “Beware of False Teachers”, “Beware the Scribes” (“those with the power to write and teach about that which is False and Confusing”)…
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
The battle over “Gay Rights” is not just a battle about Civil Liberties, Spousal Rights and Benefits… It is Truly becoming a Battle for our Children’s Hearts, Minds and Souls… as hidden forces influence a Selfish Culture toward Sexual Perversion, Family Breakdown and National Destruction!
I do not write this article to Berate my brothers and sisters in Christ. But rather to Ignite a Passion for that which is Good, Honest and Wholesome.
As of late, it seems that Christians have No Sense for Righteousness, No Spark for the Gospel and No Willingness to Fight for Godly Culture and Wholesome Family Values. I am both, sickened and saddened, by the Seeming Silence of Christians concerning the subject of “Gay Rights”.
If we Truly Believe that the Bible is the Spirit Inspired, Infallible Word of the One and Only, True Living God, should we not Consider that Sexual Perversion “Has No Rights”! Have we grown so Selfish and Disconnected from God that we would Dare to Tolerate that which God Himself so Strongly Opposes and Warns us about in the book of Leviticus?
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination… Lev 18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
Lev 18:25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Not only are many Christians Apathetic in this Battle… many more are Calling for Tolerance and Empathy for the plight of our poor mistreated homosexual friends. I was aghast when an eighty year old widowed wife of a Baptist Minister recently made a case for exception, concerning a male gay couple of twenty five years, who were not afforded the Same Rights as a God Sanctioned, Married Couple, concerning a certain hospital’s policy that requires Family Members Only, to receive information about the status of a patient. That is Not to say that I cannot sympathize with these men. But they knew, well in advance, that their decision to Ignore God’s Will would ultimately cause them discomfort and loss of certain liberties.
God has truly imbued every human being with “Freedom of Choice”. We are given unlimited liberty to choose how we will live our lives. However, with the same freedom and “Right” to choose, we are also given Warnings against choosing Selfishness and Sin… and the Consequences that will follow Every Single Choice we make that is against God’s Teaching. It is Twisted Logic indeed, that determines just because we have Freedom to Play with Nuclear Waste, that we should do so… just as a matter of principle. It is this same type of Perversion that the “Far Left” uses to confuse and confound logical and moral people. Many of us have been duped and befuddled by the most Simple Tactics. The Bible teaches that Satan often disguises himself as an “angel of light”, in order to lure us into making wrong decisions, that will harm and Destroy us. Such are our Freedoms and Decisions to do All Manner of Evil until God must give us up to our own narcissism. To Choose to Become Gay, is to Choose Death and Destruction for yourself!
Did you know that, by our best estimates, only about 6 percent of all Americans are Homosexual? I feel that this estimate is even an exaggeration. How did they Gain such a Stranglehold on the Media and Trick people into the perception that every other house in our neighborhoods contain “happy Gay Couples”? Because Christians have remained largely Confused and Silent for Far Too Long and this has allowed “the Far Left” to gain positions of Wealth and Power that seem Overwhelming. The Dark Forces at work in the world are Incredibly Powerful. Sometimes I feel as though the gates of an Asylum have been opened and all manner of chaos has been unleashed!
Perhaps I have your attention now, perhaps not… but the same Deceptions used by Gay Activists to further their cause are being used by other people in positions of Power and Authority to undermine the American Christian Values and Family Morals. We are so confused that we don’t even know how to respond to the Attack on All that is Good and Right.
Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
California lawmakers’ recently decided to set aside a Day to Honor one of the first openly Gay government politicians in that state, and practically ram it down the throats of our children in elementary schools. I will not even mention the man’s name because it could generate more notoriety for the Gay Agenda. But I will say this; This is a Blatant and Focused Attack on the Mind and Souls of our children. Desensitize them to the Truth, and they will eventually believe Anything they are told! The Gay Agenda has gained such a hold on our culture that many young people think it is Cool to Say They are Gay… even if they have not yet made the commitment.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Recently, an elementary school girl, not more than eight years old, asked me; “I have a Girl Friend… Am I a Lesbian”? I almost fell out of my chair! Not because of the question… but rather, what the question implies concerning How Typical Christians Think and Act, What they Believe, and What they Teach their Children.
As a Pastor and Minister of the Gospel, I encourage our Church to ask me anything about Bible Doctrine, God’s Word and God’s Will for us as Christians… but in Today’s American Culture of Narcissism (selfishness)… the questions are getting more and more Mind-Blowing. What could be worse for this poor confused child? I later learned that it was her parent that told her to ask me the question… Why? Because the parent was Confused about How to Answer this Simple Question. How Sad that a Christian parent can’t simply say “No Honey, your not a lesbian… and God says that you should Never become one either.
But Pastor, some may say, Shouldn’t Christians stay Neutral in the Gay and Lesbian Culture Clash and “just pray for these wayward souls”?
My question to you is this: How can we Stand Idle while our own Government, Media and Big Business keeps pushing us toward a Culture that accepts of All Manner of Perversion?
Christians Beware! It is long past time for Oblivious and Apathetic Christians to Take a Stand for the Truth taught in God’s Word. It also causes me a great deal of discomfort to report that many people who call themselves Christians, don’t even know what the Bible teaches about being Gay
What is Real Bible Doctrine Concerning Homosexuality?
Rom 1:18 For there is a revelation of the wrath of God from heaven against all the wrongdoing and evil thoughts of men who keep down what is true by wrongdoing;
Rom 1:19 Because the knowledge of God may be seen in them, God having made it clear to them.
Rom 1:20 For from the first making of the world, those things of God which the eye is unable to see, that is, his eternal power and existence, are fully made clear, he having given the knowledge of them through the things which he has made, so that men have no reason for wrongdoing:
Rom 1:21 Because, having the knowledge of God, they did not give glory to God as God, and did not give praise, but their minds were full of foolish things, and their hearts, being without sense, were made dark.
Rom 1:22 Seeming to be wise, they were in fact foolish,
Rom 1:23 And by them the glory of the eternal God was changed and made into the image of man who is not eternal, and of birds and beasts and things which go on the earth.
Rom 1:24 For this reason God gave them up to the evil desires of their hearts, working shame in their bodies with one another:
Rom 1:25 Because by them the true word of God was changed into that which is false, and they gave worship and honour to the thing which is made, and not to him who made it, to whom be blessing for ever. So be it.
Rom 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to evil passions, and their women were changing the natural use into one which is unnatural:
Rom 1:27 And in the same way the men gave up the natural use of the woman and were burning in their desire for one another, men doing shame with men, and getting in their bodies the right reward of their evil-doing.
Rom 1:28 And because they had not the mind to keep God in their knowledge, God gave them up to an evil mind, to do those things which are not right;
Brothers and Sisters, Our Culture and the very heart of American Godliness is being Attacked from all sides… Make Your Stand for the Truth!
