For Sheepdogs Cause Sheep Too Dumb

Kopp Disclosure
(John 3:19-21)

@#$%


@#$%

    Too many sheep would rather die than follow Jesus.

    If you don't believe that, you're unconscious, stoned, or OD'ed on St. John's Wort.

    God knows churches are leading the rest of the losers in that department; longing for the way things never were or maybe were but are no more as they hold on to idolatries aka traditions that never really worked or worked for a little while but don't work anymore.

    Sheep are dumb.

    It's a Biblical metaphor about the truth that most people are too dumb to follow Jesus literally and always so it may be on earth as it is in heaven.

    Sheep will follow the lead of so many inferiors than the only One who really loves by guiding, providing, and protecting them from satanos and its witting, slithering, stealthful, disguised, eager, duped, and enabled-by dummies and accomplices.

    So this is a brief disclosure on one of the dumbest things that sheep do as they follow and fall into the diabolically deadly strategies of the dark side.

    This is for sheepdogs or undershepherds to the Good Shepherd who are called and prepared to pick up their rods, staffs, and swords to protect the sheep.

    This is for wolves and their master to warn them that sheepdogs will do what is necessary to defend the sheep and defeat them.

    This, again, is not for sheep because they're too dumb to take care of themselves.

    There are so many illustrations; but since Vegas and Texas, that little sticker announcing a "Gun Free Zone" may be among the most indicative of the need for sheepdogs to protect sheep from the wolves even when the sheep seem so willing to follow the lead of those who enable those who want to devour them.

    "Baaaaaaahhh...Baaaaaaahhh...Baaaaaaahhh..."

@#$%

    The secret is out!

    Those little "Gun Free Zone" stickers invite terrorists, madwomen/men, and other miscreants to a feeding frenzy.

    If bad guys with guns know good guys with guns - law-abiding, fully vetted, trained, credentialed, and registered with big brother - are forbidden to exercise their 2nd Amendment right to protect themselves and others from bad guys with guns, bad guys with guns know they can do their deadliest without interference from good guys with guns until many/enough minutes pass by before good guys with badges and guns show up after carnage.

    Here's how it goes.

    Good guys: "Though we've been vetted, trained, credentialed, and registered, we can't go into that place with our metaphorical rods, staffs, and swords to protect anyone because they have a 'Gun Free Zone' sticker on the window.  The sheep are ready to be slaughtered."

    Bad guys: "Look!  There's a "Gun Free Zone' sticker on the window!  No one to protect the sheep!  Yahoo!"

    Really.

@#$%

    Now at this point, I've got to repeat a thesis from one of my books that nobody's read: "Trying to be rational with the irrational is illogical."

    Or as elder Bob Imm of New Kensington, Pennsylvania said many years ago while counseling me about snakes in the sanctuary, "Don't get into a pissing contest with skunks."

    Ignorant, irrational, two-feet-planted-firmly-in-the-air, and otherwise unconscious sheep-in-leaders'-clothing will come up with the most convoluted, asinine, nauseating, and intellectually dishonest and dopey pabulum to defend the "Gun Free Zone" stickers that invite mayhem.

    Heeeeeeelllllllooooooo, anybody home?

    Reminds me of Otter's famous comment to Flounder in Animal House: "Face it, Flounder, you ___ up!  You trusted us!"

    Do you really trust the backers of "Gun Free Zone" stickers to protect sheep from wolves?

    If you do, please send back your prescription from Colorado.

    The stuff that you're smoking is too intoxicating.

@#$%

    I was visiting one of my dearest friends in the hospital.

    She is very discouraged by what happened in NYC, Vegas, and Texas.

    She lamented horrific episodes of the same old story before and expressed fears of more of the same in the future.

    Asking if there's anything that can be done to stop it, she suggested more gun laws.

    I responded, "More gun laws will not stop bad guys from getting guns and using them."

    We also admitted it won't help to hold some rap sessions in Chicago or sponsor public choruses of Kumbayah.

    Then we talked about Psalm 23, Matthew 10, and Ephesians 6.

    Then we thanked God for the good guy with a gun in Texas who stopped the bad guy with a gun in Texas from slaughtering even more sheep.

@#$%

    Thanks to our media exercising their 1st Amendment right, bad guys with guns have an updated list of soft targets like churches, schools, stadiums, supermarkets, and "Gun Free Zone" stickered establishments.

    Whether it's an Islamofascistnutball or madwoman/man or whomever, it's really satanos and its kin at the genesis of any spiritual etiology.

    Sheepdogs understand that.

    Sheep are too dumb to get it.

    Wolves are fueled by it.

    That's why sheepdogs don't pay much attention to the "baaaaaaahhhing" of sheep while protecting them by turning their focus and aim on the wolves.

@#$%

Blessings and Love!

Shatter the sound of silence!

Wake up!  Look up!  Stand up!  Speak up!  Act up for Jesus!

Salt!  Shine!  Leavenate!

Thank you.

Did you delete the word so my Net Nanny wouldn’t block the email? “Face it Flounder, you f---ed up!” Never saw the whole movie, but I can guess the quoted line!
BTW, you sure are going to be in trouble with the liberals/Dems/anti-NRA folks in your congregation, community and extended family. Do you not have any of those folks in your midst? Lucky you!

Bob,

Praise God for your healing!

It's amazing how free one becomes when pension credits have been piled up for over four decades.

Actually, I am really trying not to devolve into the vulgarities of our days; which is why I deleted that word. When I was younger, we'd use that word for only very, very, very special occasions. Now it's everything from a noun, verb, adjective, and... Don't like the word even when not paying attention to the apostle and using it.

Fortunately, on the corner of Lincoln and Main, people know I love 'em, will die for 'em (literally), and will do everything that I can to guide, provide, and protect 'em.

We're family; and they endure what they don't like about me; which, according to rumor, is a lot...especially from that lady who sneaks into a Sunday School class because she can't stand the sight of me in worship. Jude, the letter, comes to mind.

Truth is I was helped to take the church away from some institutional and ideological idolaters and give it back to Jesus over the past almost 12 years.

Ain't going nowhere unless assassinated, have Grandpa Kopp's cancer genes, or...

Annnnnnnd in this 500th anniversary of the Reformation, remember, as I've always said as mentored by those bravehearted saints, I'll always confess, repent, and ask forgiveness if shown my error by Jesus, Holy Scripture, and common sense.

Blessings and Love!
