The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
We here at Shattered Men can not express the sadness and horror we have for the events in New York City and Washington D.C.

September 11, 2001
"Huge explosion, great ball of fire, smoke started billowing out, and then it was just chaos." -- Mike Walter, an eyewitness, told CNN.
United Airlines Flight 93, the hijacked airliner that crashed Tuesday near SHANKSVILLE, Pennsylvania may well have hit a major target but for those on board that essentially gave their life also that others might live.

First, in a club this large, I am not surprised to find
several that do not have "personal" interest and those with missing
loved ones are foremost in our prayers. It is my earnest prayer the LORD Himself
cradled these loved ones in His hand and that rescue will be forthcoming. It is
also my prayer the LORD will comfort each person that is waiting with HIS
NEXT: This act was thought of and carried out by a FEW...DO NOT BLAME ALL Arabs or Muslims for this act. That would be as wrong as blaming ALL Christians for what a few may do.
Our Lord said HE is not willing that ANY should perish so we should be praying along this regard also. YES I want those responsible to be brought to justice...but I also pray for their salvation for if the Lord can not forgive them, HE would not have been able to forgive me. It is a very difficult position for our leaders, not only here but all our world leaders. Many nations lost people last Tuesday, not just the United States
Words can not express for any of us the thoughts, the feeling that have been going on since Tuesday morning. I so much wanted to get my hands on a PC so I could find out what was going on here...in our clubs. I should be home tomorrow.
Most of all, I want to address those reading this that do not KNOW for sure where they would be right THIS moment IF they had worked on the 90th floor of the World Trade Center last Tuesday and was just sitting down at their desk at that tragic time. NONE of these people expected to be in eternity a moment later, with NO CHANCE whatsoever to call out to God. If YOU are not ready, contact us, we want to help make sure YOU are!
How to have eternal life
OH MY LORD, words can not express our thoughts, the thoughts
of so many others here in this club, our nation and around the world. YES..I am
YES, I am heart broken! I as many others here feel so helpless when the need is so great. I as so many others here would like to be there to dig those people out that may still be trapped out brick by brick.
Most of all My LORD, we too wonder WHY! However when we look back on this nation that has systematically thrown YOU MY LORD out of our schools, our of our government, out of our homes, our stores and our business, what could YOU do my Lord.? What could You do? We have shaken our fist at You! You only go where You are invited. And this includes US. My Lord, I open ME up as never before for You to be LORD of ALL of me.
My LORD. YOU told us to do something most of us certainly do not want to do. You said in Matthew 5
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
so My Lord, we do follow YOUR command not only to pray for those families who lost loved ones, some of whom are members of this club, but we pray for those responsible for this that are still alive. You said You are not willing for ANY to perish and what more evidence would there be for Your love and power then for these people to find YOU. We know they would still need to be held accountable, but ......
Stephen as he was being stoned as the first to die for You, prayed to forgive those that were throwing the stones. My Lord, help us to do the same. I know it is far easier for me to say for I have not directly lost loved ones, but again You said "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose
My LORD, we are depending on this as never before....
Many thought these buildings were strong towers. Many felt save in the Pentagon. My friend, NO PLACE is SAFE without the Lord
For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
My friend again we as a nation have systematically banned God from our schools, from our government, from our business, from our homes and YES from our churches. God is a gentleman. HE will not go where HE is not invited.
IS IT NOT TIME TO INVITE HIM BACK INTO ALL THESE PLACES? IS IT NOT TIME TO TAKE BACK OUR HERITAGE AND DECLARE THAT THIS IS A CHRISTIAN NATION.
YES we Can and MUST do this while accepting those with other views and other ideas. We are told WE must be TOLERATE but when we are denied the right to do those things we have been according to the United States Constitution....who is being tolerate of US? If I want you to listen to my ideas should I not be willing to listen to "yours"
United States Constitution.
"Bill of Rights" Amendment I.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
MOST of all, we need to exercise our "right" to tell others in LOVE! We can not and will not win someone to our side by expressing hate.
1 Corinthians 13
I'VE SEEN THE ANGELS CRY
always thought that angels wore halos and wings of white.
But now I find they wear hard hats and black coats with yellow stripes.
And angels, in my mind, wore long flowing gowns of white.
But now I see dark pants and shirts and badges shining bright.
And angels always floated with bare feet above the ground.
Not true! For they wear steel toed boots and go where death is found.
Not all angels have smooth hands that look like porcelain.
Some angels have torn gloves and cuts and burns upon their skin.
And while I thought all angels glowed from heavens light.
I see an angel cutting steel, his torch is shining bright.
And while these earthly angels passed buckets of debris.
The angels up in heaven looked down on bended knee.
So while the smoke continued to rise into the sky.
I watched the rescue workers weep, I've seen the angels cry.

workers who gave their ALL without hesitation )

Why THIS Cartoon?
First we are told we will reap what we sow. YES We are told to love our enemies as mentioned above. Yes we are told that vengeance belongs to God. However we are also told that we WILL reap what we sow.
NO we as individuals are not to seek vengeance but it is the God ordained duty of government to protect its people. Would any of you have told the United States this on Dec 8th 1941?
Would any have said not to respond as this cartoon suggest to a man named Adolph Hitler?
Would these same thoughts pertain to criminals? To murderers?
Note this verse well:
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:4

In the context of THIS Web Site I also want to remind us ALL
WOMEN: Just because one man have abused you in the past, it does not mean ALL men are abusers.
MEN: Just because one woman has abused you or has falsely accused you of abuse, does not mean ALL women are like this.
MOST MEN AND WOMEN are NOT ABUSIVE !
To all, please pray for this ministry as I too have to remind myself of this since I often hear so many "horror stories" that I too can tend to forget
