In working in South East Asia as and American Christian Missionary, and furthermore, plainly stating on my Visa Application to their country my purpose, for entering this absolutely, totally Buddhist country, was to share the “Gospel of Jesus Christ.”   

This Country’s corruptions was off the charts, in comparison to Mexico’s corruption, Mexico would be very “TAME.”

The narco traffic was the big problem -Heroin production from this border area referred to as the ‘”Golden Triangle.”

This was an area that I was in. The heroin production was for money, to these hill tribe people who were very poor, compared to the lowlanders.

The problems was “money!” for a steady income?

I was able to map out the areas, and then have ground samples taken. Through this mapped area, I was aware of an government program, for the introduction of 30,000 thirty thousand coffee trees. The government had a free program, that was working in unison with the UN.

Then to my dismay, when they found out that and American Missionary was the behind all of this preparations, they wanted to charge one dollar per tree.

Needless to say, I didn’t have 30,000 thousand dollars. I was left bewildered, not understanding what the “Lord  Was Doing By Having Me To put This Time and Effort Into This Project?”

On one of my subsequent returns to this country, low and behold there were coffee tree’s planted all of this mountainous areas!  The government had move forward on this program and…

It was “beauty to behold,” as these young trees, now being nurtured and cared for, by the very people who were had been cultivating the opium “Poppy.”

These types of programs help the locals to gain a steady income.

Mexico’s export from this border area was 160 BILLION dollars for 2008!

However, the problem here lays in the totally lack of manufacturing of the parts that they are in fact assembling.

A good part of Mexico’s problems can be solved with a “Manufacturing Infrastructure Programs.”

Mexico, working with their “GLOBAL” partner’s here, have helped it’s people by arranging a government housing program available to all, also they have through their international companies here, to help with private bus transportation to work, and also these companies have their own hospitals, to care for their employees. This along hot meals at their work place cafeterias’. The government here, has an active training programs available to all, for job training in  their selected fields.

The current initiatives to Mexico (700 million in tech support type equipment) I feel, is in part miss applied.

Manufacturing infrastructures, is the key for stability, in my opinion, and the opportunity for more people to work, thus off setting the daring attempts at smuggling drugs.

The continuing “Border Wall” is necessary for the safety of the people of Reynosa, and those south of the Wall. The Wall in fact, will deter the smugglers to move out of this area, and to find easier access in running their dope operations.

A Reply In Regards To “Works By Christians.”

I have been busy…in regards too your comments,… I would say “no,” I don’t think that was their motivation. As you know their are many groups going and building houses, and doing repairs, for the poor and needed. This is a denominational national program that the M——–do here, as well as in many other places.

I know the regional director who is the liaison for Mexico, and is the coordinator, for the folks coming into Mexico, this also includes, the medical and dental teams, as well as others.

I guess I wasn’t  to clear in my earlier post. The point I was trying to make, that in all of the works that go on, Christ’s message of “Salvation,”

is placed on a back burner of sorts.

American Christians as well as the public tax dollar, by all of us, have helped millions and will continue to do so.

Christianity, I’m afraid, has tipped the scale in favor of works, as being the evidence of being a Christian. Yes, when one is born again, he or she does demonstrate works, however, those works cannot be a substitute for being a born a new by the Spirit of God. 

Or those works, however good they are, are only those of a religious person, as his or her duty.

Again, most of the churches here have adopted an attitude, that the only way they can succeed is by “America” giving them what they need.

Where God -in their mind, and, the answer to all their problems and prayers,- is money from America.

This is a misnomer.

The Bible and it’s teachings are clear about asking God for help. On the contrary, and I must repeat, to the contrary, of many Christian believers, God doesn’t answer sometimes in the way that we would like.

Sufferings, pains, deaths, hunger, abuse is part of being a Christian also. When a love one, is dying before your eyes, in a ravaged, cancer eaten shell of an existence. God is still to be praised! from the highest mountain! When a child turns from the goodness of the Lord. God is still to be praised! In all things to praise the Lord! When all turn away, and hear not, the words of the greatest man that ever walked “Jesus!” yet, God, is to be praised!

Mexico’s problems are of Mexican origin, and they, the problems, if they are ever to be resolved, will be, by the Mexican people. Not by an endless stream of money.

    I would like to say that, when I do run across the “Believer’s in Atheism,” that there is a quality- of this particular group of “Believer’s,” that is a “truisms,” and that being, that in their early lives, they have been affected seriously by a very emotional negative impact, by various others, in other types of “Believer’s Groups.”

    These effects, normally centered first, within the immediate family structure, or, either outward, to include one’s social circles.

    This particular, “Believer’s Atheist Group,” has intense hostile feelings towards any perceived spiritual structure.

    All though,- these demonstrated feelings, are, in fact, those of insecurity, and their own low self esteem,- their feelings are generally well hidden; by an intense, and rigorous educational platform.

    Normally these, “Believers Atheist Groups,” are very bright, and articulate, having taken on form’s of Narcissism. 

    Nevertheless, in a closer evaluation of those, within this “Believer’s Atheist Group,” the common denominator is, “un-forgiveness, to those that have wounded their spirit,” and therefore, they have never had the opportunity to realize a totally different type of life’s experience.

    Those within this “Atheist Believer’s People’s Group,” for the most part, are blinded from actual reality.

    Their life’s experience to date, has been to cover, and masked, the deep emotional pain, that they have now come to live with, as being normal.

    10. According ling, man’s beginning’s -as recorded,- he was in good standing with God.

    11. Man’s intelligence is demonstrated with his phenomenal language demonstration, has he name’s the animals there with and around him.

      Man’s disobedience to God brought sin unto all. God, did therefore say, that He would bring forth one, that will totally crush this power that resides within all. This in fact, is called “Sin.” This, “sin”  within all men, is this uncontrollable stubbornness against God. 

    12. Sin simply define is: “that which is born within man, this uncontrollable stubbornness against God.”

    13. Those that follow after Adam, and that have chosen to honored God and his promises, these beginning civilized voices, and then their subsequent roots, that have sprung forth, have brought to the world’s knowledge, the basic building blocks of civilized society, that being of “morality and justice.”

    14. These are the platforms,-available to the world- and those of which each civilized society has reached into, and furthermore, have brought into their perspective group, these,  “morality and justice,” are essential in order to have a peaceful co-existence with others. 

    15. Accordingly, through these very basics ideals and concepts, from the now “Current Christians Bible Of Both The Old And New Testament,” that today’s global laws on issues: such as human rights, and equality, including even those, that at time seem for remove from their biblical roots, those including the sanctity of life’s underpinnings’.

    16. The green technologies, eco friendly solution, to complex environmental problems, along with there solutions, are readily available with in the confines, of the God’s original ideals for man and his existence on planet earth.

    17.  

      The recorded history of “Man,” is well documented.

    18. Those that decidedly and rebelliously left from God’s care, birthed a created race of uncivilized people, commonly understood as history’s “Barbarians.”

    19. Theses Barbaric groups slaughtered, murdered, pillage mankind, their eventual scourge was liked unto to a cancer, that slowly and inevitable touched all four corners of the earth.

    20. The uncouth, uncivilized barbaric history, is quite revealing, there is a mantras of names concealing their their true intents.

    21. However, from an intensive historical perspective, it is evident, that their core value- their catalyst, that which continually propels them forward into each succeeding generation, either through family, or social national ties, is their criminal insanity, to the objection to the God of the Christian Bible.

    22. To repeat an earlier statement. Man’s disobedience to God brought sin unto all. God did therefore say that He would bring forth one, that, would  totally crush this power that resides within all, this sin, which is within, in fact, it is man’s sin,- which is this uncontrollable stubbornness against God, 

    23. Consequently though, the barbaric slaughters  centered around God fearing people, and in time this was addressed.

    24. Nevertheless, as time and history past, the followers of God, fell to the all to common level as the barbarians themselves. Generational Holy wars move into history pages.

    25. These groups, the barbarians and the so-called Christians where in the same arena of abuse, murdered, and rampage against all and any, with opposing views.

    26. These so- called “Christians Groups” where only using the name of Christianity, for in fact, their demonstrated action align them with the very group that they opposed the “Barbarians.”  

      The ongoing evolution of gained knowledge there is clearly a linked, to the understanding of God’s relationship to man.

    27. This is the crucible, -of the warring factions,- the Barbarians, Christians along with all other religious groups, that have

    28. spilled into history’s pages.

    29. Those that have in fact, adhere to a loving and caring God, proved to be the force within all civilized society, of every generation.

    30. The recognition of God, either by His direct intervention within man’s daily lives, commonly referred to as, “Divine Province,” or from the Deist view of God, of a God that does not intervene.

      Man capitulating to God, is the historic foundation of civilized man, through all known genre of knowledge known to man.

      Heretofore, the existence of the barbarians, and their segregated, anti God views, are also well documented.

      The “barbarian,” of today, are those that are diligently trying to rewrite all of history, to their own narrowly defined agenda, which is clear, for all to see, “THEY ARE GODLESS ARTICLES.”
