SORT BY Relevancy
When we battle or struggle with Sin, no matter what it is we often conceed and say "the devil made me do it". It really is sort of an easy way out. Satan is after all the great deceiver and master manipulator who's goal is to drag away and entice every follower of Christ and lead them to doom and destruction. It's really our faith that's truly being tested. And so it comes down to our desires. The things we watch on TV, internet, what we choose to meditate on or lust after....is on us. Its our desires that get us in trouble, but thank God we can choose to think holy, righteous and pure thoughts. In order to do this we must get to the root of the problem.

The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.
All of us at some point in our lives will face something in life that's truly beyond our strength to endure. And often times they are battles we fight and sometimes overcome by God's awesome power and might. Other times we seem to not want to face that Giant in our lives, and it leaves us fearful, which means we will fall way short of what God has in mind for us. Perhaps its an illness, job loss or losing your home, struggling with ography, insecurity, lust. At that very moment as we seek to overcome victoriously no matter what it is just know its used by Satan to cause you to fail and give up, but God uses it to move us to greater heights that we've never seen before. By God's grace may He help us overcome daily by the Spirits sword to defeat those giants in our lives.
If there is an argument against god, it is the problem of evil. Even believers admit this is the strongest argument against god, so that must be so. If it is, why hasn't it convinced all the believers?
Let's talk about the answers to the problem of evil and why I think they fail. This is counter apologetics - why I snort and retort!
Plus your calls.
Logically, that means awesomeness!

3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.
Human rights organizations, as well as political and social ones, are condemning what they are calling a new form of inhumane exploitation in the United States, where they say a prison population of up to 2 million – mostly Black and Hispanic – are working for various industries for a pittance. For the tycoons who have invested in the prison industry, it has been like finding a pot of gold. They don’t have to worry about strikes or paying unemployment insurance, vacations or comp time. All of their workers are full-time, and never arrive late or are absent because of family problems; moreover, if they don’t like the pay of 25 cents an hour and refuse to work, they are locked up in isolation cells.
There are approximately 2 million inmates in state, federal and private prisons throughout the country. According to California Prison Focus, “no other society in human history has imprisoned so many of its own citizens.” The figures show that the United States has locked up more people than any other country: a half million more than China, which has a population five times greater than the U.S. Statistics reveal that the United States holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. From less than 300,000 inmates in 1972, the jail population grew to 2 million by the year 2000. In 1990 it was one million. Ten years ago there were only five private prisons in the country, with a population of 2,000 inmates; now, there are 100, with 62,000 inmates. It is expected that by the coming decade, the number will hit 360,000, according to reports.
All of the reasons why Fear is only holding you back!
Eleven seized Libyan jetliners raise fears of 9/11 III; "Degrade" ISIS, "destroy" ISIS, or "manage" ISIS? "What difference does it make" when Barack Obama doesn't want any of these options?; The disastrous consequences of Obama's inaction; The Islamic State's differences with other Islamic-supremacist groups are irrelevant; So much for Barack Obama's <snicker> "non-ideological" foreign policy; and if The One is truly this "bored," why doesn't he just resign? You know why.
Shawn Griffith spent over 23 years in various Florida prisons for an armed robbery he committed in 1992 at the age of 21. He has just recently been conditionally released from prison. He documents in elaborate and exacting detail what is wrong with the corrections system in the U. S and provides a host of solutions about how to improve it and save the taxpayers millions of dollars, while making our streets safer at the same time.
"Facing the U.S. Prison Problem 2.3 Million Strong" is written by someone from inside "the belly of the beast," who knows from years of personal experience what works and what doesn't. Ironically, most prisons today are not set up to rehabilitate prisoners but to do the opposite --simply to warehouse ever-increasing numbers of them until their eventual release with little or no practical training to succeed on the outside. Shawn advocates that the real purpose of prison, in addition to punishment, should be to enable the 90 percent who will eventually be released to cope on the outside and not return to prison within the first three years, as now just under half of all released prisoners do.
Shawn shows how tough-on-crime politicians, supported by guard unions and private prison corporations, have a vested interest in keeping the recidivism rate high. Instead of fostering in-prison drug rehab, job training, impulse control, and close family ties, prisons continually slash these critical programs to hire more guards and build more prisons. In California, 70 percent of the prison budget goes to pay the 31,000 guards it employs and only 5 percent to vocational programs to reduce recidivism. Until taxpayers grasp how counterproductive this approach truly is in providing public safety, there will be no chance for meaningful prison reform. FACING THE U.S. PRISON PROBLEM 2.3 MILLION STRONG-Shawn Griffith
Black People have the highest Unemployment Rates and Black Kids have the worse School Test Scores. Black Poeple and Minorities have the highest Drug Abuse Rates, the highest Incarceration Rates, the highest Gang Violence Rates, The highest Teen Pregnancy Rates, the highest High School Dropout Rates, the highest Divorce Rates, etc., etc., etc...
Black People are at the bottom of the list in most every category imaginable, in this nation. And our answer to everything? "It's OK, just blame it on 'The Man'... That's right, 'The White Man'.
What do I say? "Excuses... Excuses!"
This will not be the show that helps me win the Mr. Popularity Contest among Black People, Hispanics and other Minorities in this nation. But the truth must be told and I am the chosen one to tell it.
Of-course, it is all open for debate. Your thoughts and opinions are always welcome and encouraged. On our show, agreement is never required, but courtesy and respect are, so there is never a good reason to be silent. This is your opportunity to let your voice be heard.
