Is it true? Is it appropriate and really good timing for acting on that?

Is it really so? Ask, ask, ask yourself again when you hear or read. Is it true, will it work and help? Is it kind, is it destructive. Does it build up or tear down? Will it help people get closer or father away from God and His will for their lives? Does it hurt our nation, another nation, another people group? Does it needlessly offend others? Does it build a bridge or a wall. Is the speaker a lumper or a spliter.. a divisive person or a unifier, one who maliciously wounds or one used to heal people? Are they a gatherer or a scatterer? Get deeply absorbed in thought some.. yeah, a bit more. It's not really like suckin' quicksand on Gilligan's Island that's going to swallow you up unto death.

Cultivate thoughts of biblical worship, of the Word of God, of giving of oneself away, of soul-winning and simple edifying discipleship. 
Think Westerners. Think! Pre-think, post-think, think in the middle of it all.

"A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor." ― Victor Hugo 

The trouble, the real issue at hand.. the problem with most people is that they have a wishbone in the place where a backbone should be. They think and then don't act appropriately. They think with their hopes, with their wishes, with their strange unbiblical impressions and R-movies, with their Tabloid TV input, with their fears rather than with the minds that God gave them. So to the Spirit man, and not to the flesh. It starts with thinking--that's where the main battle is. 

"We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them." ― Albert Einstein

"He who thinks little errs much.." ― Leonardo da Vinci

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled." ― Plutarch

"We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.." 10/52corinthians 

"May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord." 104/34psalm

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." 4/8philippians

"Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise." 3/18.1corinthians 

"For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace." 8/5-6romans

Why let Hollywood think for you?.. or let carnal weird luke-warm Christians do that for ya, or let worldly close friends ..that don't even love you but daily pull you down, or let the corrupt White House and it's fans, or popular songs with really cool music but wrong lyrics that encourage you to do what's wrong ..think for you? Stop it. Why let them keep telling you what to do? Is it really time for that? Think for yourself and for the glory of the God who gave you a mind. Don't you still have friends or family members truly hell-bound and more lost as lizards? 

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." 12/2romans

Think about the flawless, others-oriented, sterling, absolutely perfect character of Christ. Makes me want godly character. If we really think about it all.. the Gospel, what's in the Bible.. how truth was applied in the past.. and all that Jesus was, said, did and stood for.. it's so reasonable and logical to completely sell out to Him... to really know and serve Him. 

"Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours." ― John Locke

"No amount of energy will take the place of thought. A strenuous life with its eyes shut is a kind of wild insanity."  Henry Van Dyke

"Thinking is like loving and dying. Each of us must do it for himself." ~Josiah Royce

"Some people get lost in thought because it's such unfamiliar territory.― G. Behn

Think, wake up, cogitate, meditate, and muse on it ..the truth.. until it's truly yours. Have healthy cognition. I say loud and clear.. Let our people here in the West.. think deeply.. and then act right. We don't have time for PC, for playin' around longer, for vain pursuits. There's too much at stake. Too many here have been ripped off too much and for too long. Let Christians and not-yet-believers think about what's so!  facebook.com/shareJesus

Dare ya to pray: I repent n turn to You, God. Forgive me. Come in and take over. Lead.. I'll follow. Help me be as quick as You are. Kindle me well. Rekindle me once again! Even now. Light me on fire, Jesus. Let me burn real bright so that the confused world out in the night can see You ..and hear what’s right.. hear what's so n know! Amen.
