discussion of the Millennial Malaise and how to Escape It
of Millennial- A person reaching adulthood in the early 21st Century.
to drop the word "Malaise" on you in the subtitle. It sounds like something
that goes with tomato and lettuce, right?
malaise is a state of confusion caused by nothing much happening. It is akin to
"status quo" but with confusion added in.
article is dedicated to all you millennials who have come to see that your life
is not turning out to be your glorious reign over the world and your part of it
as almighty wonder person. Someone lied to you, and you have just realized it.
trick in this article is to decide if I am lying to you also. I would suggest
that I would not waste my time writing an article for you if I had no interest
in your success in life.
THE DEADLY DOCTRINE OF LOSERS
did the doctrine of self-love come from?
3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD
God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat
of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may
eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree
which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither
shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye
shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof,
then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods,
knowing good and evil.
of preachers who tell you what God knows or thinks, as if the preacher had a personal
little talk with God and ferreted out God's secret thoughts. And, start with Pentecostal
and Charismatic gurus who know what God is thinking.
any case, Satan convinced Eve that she needed to treat herself better. She was
told she could be a goddess, and that is what Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers told
you long ago. Today, all the mega church preachers are telling you that YOU are
the center of the universe, and the sun rises every morning, circles three times
around your shoulders, and sets. And, that is a perfect day, with YOU at the center
of all things.
you believed the message, that is why you are sitting at home wondering why the
world has not come rushing to your door offering to make you a god, or at least
a CEO. You believed the deadly lie, and now you are a dull loser. Stick around,
and I will help you find your way into the real world God planned for you.
heresy of self-love
cannot learn to love others until you learn to love yourself."- Robert Schuler
surest way to make God your enemy is to exalt yourself. Lucifer tried that, and
he was cast out of Heaven and will burn in Hell. Eve tried to be like God, and
she ended up dying. Millennials are taught to be proud of themselves and think
highly of themselves. This is a formula for disaster.
Peter 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of
you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth
the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers,
false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors,
heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a
form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
are the last days. The fulfillment of prophecies in the Bible tells us that we
are near the end of this era of the Church. The problem in the verses above is
that the people being talked about have a form of godliness. This means these
people are church members. They are your alleged Christian friends. Their godliness
is a hoax. Do you run with these people?
first way to tell if you have the wrong kind of friends is that they are "lovers
of their own selves." When they go out to have coffee with you, they pull
out their iPad, and they disappear into cyberspace. They do not care diddly about
you and friendship. They are all about themselves. Are you becoming like them?
If so, read the rest of the list above. That is where self-love takes you.
Am" by Joel Osteen- This preacher has built his church by grabbing hold of
thousands of millennials and feeding them on more pabulum from the millennial
day care system that deformed them already.
man is possessed of devils. He has the amazing power to persuade by his smooth
words. Did he not sound like he was delivering up a great solution to all of life's
sorrows? I bet you were suckered in by some of it, right? The point is, when you
are ugly, no matter what magic mantra of words you burp up, you will still be
ugly. The happy Christian learns to be thankful to God for who he is.
message of Joel Osteen is pure Hinduism and New Age philosophy. He ought to have
to wear a red dot between his eyes so that people know where he comes from. He
is teaching that you can speak words about yourself, and they will come true.
Well, that is 100% in contradiction to the Word of God. Thus.....
7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for
to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
you run your little bucket down into the well of your self-love, God says you
will bring up "no good thing." You never got one good thing in your
life that did not come by the hand of God, and the sooner you figure that out,
the sooner you will leave behind the millennial Hell you are in now.
you feel like you need to think better of yourself, go talk to God, and ask him
to make you someone you can live with. He will do it by changing you from what
you ARE to what he wants you to be. And, that will be a person you will like to
live with. But, God has to make you who you are.
a preacher uses the pronoun "You" hundreds of times in a sermon, beware.
This is often calculated. Modern advertising gurus know the power of "You,"
and they make sure the TV commercial uses "You" over and over. The most
potent message is "You deserve....."
is Robert Schuler telling you about Self Love. This book deceived millions.
Don't waste your time listening to the whole sermon. But, understand that Schuler
is giving the same message that Satan gave to Eve in the Garden of Eden.
is also the same message all your mentors throughout your life gave you as a millennial.
It is a lie of Satan and a total contradiction of the Word of God.
you are now sitting at home waiting for the world to beat a path to your door
and make you happy and rich, you are a deluded idiot. YOU deserve nothing but
to go to Hell. Only by the power of Jesus Christ can your life be saved from damnation,
AND, only be the help of God will you accomplish anything useful with the rest
of your life. If you ever figure that out, you will have a chance to have enough
and be content with the life God gives you.
4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before
thee. 26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
is a journey. Life will not come to you..... you must go find a life, and keep
your eyes wide open. There are many sources of information and alleged light,
but some of them will lead you into the ditch. Keep looking straight ahead. When
you let distractions enter, you begin to play and amuse yourself, and you soon
become selfish and full of lust to satisfy your worst instincts. When you realize
something you have bumped into is evil, flee from it.
Timothy 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's
sins: keep thyself pure.
you hear a guru, philosopher, Ph.D., or preacher speak new things, assume they
are suspect at best. At this point in the history of the world, nothing is new.
What is now has been long ago and either failed men or lifted them up and onward.
If a thing is new and novel, it is suspect. Your task is to keep hammering down
your instincts for a new thing, and find the old paths that worked well for grandpa
and your father.
did a lot of hiking in the forests of Kenya in the Kiambu area when I was in High
School. I would find a well trodden path through the forest, and at times it seemed
to wander too much. A few times I decided to launch out and head directly toward
my destination "bush barging" in a straight line. Soon, I learned why
the old paths wandered. They were chosen long ago by old African men who found
the obstacles and hazards and took detours that saved time or prevented accidents.
Sometimes a path went around cliffs and caves, and there is where the leopards
hang out. Those who have walked on before you have left you a path that may well
be safer and more interesting. Sometimes the path leads to a honey tree where
bee hives are found. The photo is actually from the Kiambu Forests of Kenya.
you become so full of yourself that older experienced men and women are a bother
to you? If so, I can promise you this..... until you determine to learn from those
who went before you, you will remain a loser and a snob, sitting in your corner
wondering when your luck will change. Luck is for fools.
parable of the man with his barn
12:16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man
brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What
shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18 And he said,
This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I
bestow all my fruits and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou
hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required
of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21 So
is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
this fool had lived today, he would mortgage his house to build his new barns,
and in a couple of years he would declare bankruptcy and move into a tent city.
When you become satisfied with what you have, you are safe. When you start lusting
for bigger barns, and a home in Malibu, or a penthouse at the top, you have doomed
yourself to disaster.
key word to live a happy fulfilled life is "Enough." Solomon understood
this when he prayed:
30:7 Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die: 8
Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me
with food convenient for me: 9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who
is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
is"convenient" for you, in modern language, is, "What is enough
for me." And, stop looking at what God gave the guy next to you. It may be
what God thinks he needs, so if he has more than you, look straight ahead, and
be content. It may also be that the guy next to you is loaded with stuff and delicate
food because he is over his ears in debt. Keep an eye on such people, for soon
they will be bankrupt and begging bread or living under a bridge.
you are a millennial, chances are this admonition sounds boring and dull to you.
You have been convinced, by the propaganda from your life journey, that you deserve
the good life. You deserve bigger barns and Starbucks non-stop. You will not ever
be content and happy with life until you learn this lesson from Solomon..... NEVER.
MILLENNIALS- YOU CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO BE LIE
Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that
they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not
the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
day is coming, and some of us believe it has arrived, when God will HELP humanity
lie and believe lies. Lying is endemic in the whole world's cultures. Something
has happened during the past hundred years which has released the spirit to lie.
It is now so bad that men lie when the truth would serve them better. President
Obama is simply one of many US Presidents who lied non-stop, but Obama seemed
to be the worst. This situation with our leaders has signaled the millennials
of the USA that lying is a way of life. A millennial will lie to you simply for
the fun of it.
biggest lie the system has told the millennial generation is, "You can be
anything you want to be." This is simply a lot of balderdash. A man with
a physical handicap cannot join the US Military. A man with one arm missing cannot
work on a salmon boat in Alaska. A blind man cannot drive in the Indianapolis
500. And, a man who falls off his horse every time he climbs on will not be hired
on any ranch in the US Southwest.
am reminded of my brother in law, Don. He grew up in a missionary home in Tanzania,
and he lived on a medical station. One of his heroes was Dr. Bill Barnet. Don,
as a kid, wanted to be a doctor like Dr. Bill. Don asked the doctor if he could
watch an operation, and the doctor agreed that he could. Don and his sister, who
is now my wife, watched as the whole drama of the operating room went on, but
when Dr. Bill started cutting, and the blood started flowing, Don passed out cold.
Dr. Bill encouraged Don later because Don felt like he had somehow been a failure
at just watching an operation. Dr. Bill told Don what modern parents and teachers
are terrified to tell their kids. He said, "This was a good experience, Don.
You wanted to be a doctor, so it was good you learned this now instead of going
off to college for medical training, only to learn later that seeing blood and
cutting people would be impossible for you." Don could NOT be anything he
wanted to be.
does not mean that we who want to help millennials should slap down their dreams
carelessly, but we must force them to start thinking about life in terms of limitations.
There simply ARE limitations on all of us. I would love to ride a Harley Davidson,
but I have two limitations. First, I don't have the money to buy one of those
monsters, and second, I don't have a wife who will be happy to see me ride a Hog.
So, my limitations determine whether or not I will ride with Vladimir Putin and
his motor cycle gang (which exists, believe it or not).
a millennial employee tells you what he wants to do, or when he lets you know
that he expects to be CEO by next Thursday, you need to patiently let him know
that his dreams are a delusion. Let him know you understand that he was told,
for many years, that he would be an instant success once he entered the working
world. But, let him know that he will follow the same path everyone else has followed,
and if he whines, fire him. You will never get your ROI out of him. If he listens,
lead him into the real world with patience.
to teach the millennial that there is a great difference between arrogantly being
obsessed with a single dream, and finding a place in the world around us where
we can be happy and content with our life.
you are a millennial, you need urgently to sit still in the woods one day, and
ask yourself, "What lies did my parents, my teachers, and my university professors
tell me that I still believe?" Cleanse your soul of lies now before you have
to be emotionally and mentally ravaged by reality in this unforgiving world.
follows is a discussion of the many lies and who they come from in our modern
society and culture.
of you were plopped in front of the TV by your Mom, and this is what the kiddy
show told you was the real world. Did you Mom ever talk to you about this false
message, or did she reinforce it? Here is the classic lie they told you, taken
from the song. "In the whole wide human race, there is no one who could ever
take your place."
dropping the lemonade into the deep frying grease at your McDonald's job, and
you will find that someone most certainty can take you place. Being exceptional
is not an inheritance promised to you by God, in spite of the lies told to you
by Sesame Street, your pastor, your Mom, or anyone else. No one owes you anything
if you make no effort to join the human race and make a contribution.
words "I am" are repeated over and over, while God gets one mention.
This was clearly the Gaithers appealing to the ongoing trend to tell kids they
could be anything they want to be. The song came out in the 1970s when you were
a kid forming your first impressions about life. When Christians sing or teach
this rubbish, they are guilty of using the lies of Satan and society to deceive
kids. Right, it sells well, and that is the motive..... the cash flow.
Osteen: The great I Am. We talked about this liar earlier in this article. This
is the lie as delivered by Christian pastors. These men are worse than liars,
they are using the popular message of the world and Satan to keep you coming back
Sunday after Sunday to warm a spot in a pew and get the warm fuzzies about YOU.
fact is, a four foot man cannot be a US Marine. Neither can a seven foot man.
They will both not fit the situations Marines get into. A woman cannot do anything
a combat soldier does. When women are assigned to combat units, they do not have
to meet the same requirements as men. This is because woman are not created by
God to do the heavy work a man does.
Canaanites opened war on Israel, and the commander of the Canaanites was Sisera.
The war went badly for the Canaanites, and Sisera ended up on foot running from
Israel. Sisera ran to the tent of a family that was not committed to either side
in the battle. He imagined he would receive sympathy and could hide with these
people. The husband was away, and his wife Jael was home. She invited Sisera into
the tent and entertained him. She had a strong hate for the Canaanites, but she
pretended to want to please Sisera. Jael gave Sisera a drink of milk, brought
him butter in costly serving dish, and she tucked him in for a nice long nap.
Jael then took up a mallet and a huge tent peg, and she drove the tent peg through
Sisera's head. Jael did not belong in the Israeli army at the front line, but
that did not prevent her from delivering Israel of their arch enemy. She performed
great in spite of her limitations as a home maker. God made sure her story was
recorded in the Bible in order to memorialize her.
feminazi message today is that women can do anything a man can do. The only way
God permits that in godly women is if they are following his will keeping the
home and submitting to their own husband. When a woman launches a career in the
world she has to change. She can no longer be totally female. She has to walk
like a jackboot and talk like a drill sergeant. These sort of women seem to prosper,
but their marriages are totally wrecked, and their kids are orphans. Sooner or
later, they pay the price for being manly in order to prosper.
lie here is that, if you are female, you can kick the butt of any man out of his
job and take it away from him. The feminist movement is rapidly becoming repulsive
to men, and women are finding it hard to find a Type A man who will give them
all the pampering they think they deserve.
"Me Too" trend has also caused men to fear being alone with a woman.
Any woman can make a claim that a man assaulted her, and he will get fired even
though the woman cannot prove the accusation. There is no will in the courts and
society to hold faminazi women accountable for false accusation. So, ladies, the
men are avoiding you, especially if you show ANY sign of feminist behavior. To
tell the truth, you ladies have had your fun bashing men, and now you may have
to get along without a man. There is a price to pay for being a jerkette in the
time will come soon, in the working world, when men will fight back, and women
will have to qualify to be what they want to be, just like men. And, when it comes
time to climb a two thousand foot TV tower, and change the flashing light at the
top, women will stop applying for the job. In the old world, men took the dangerous
jobs because women were preserved from deadly things. That is why an African man
walks ahead of his wife and kids down a path. The wife may be carrying their burdens,
but the man goes first to deal with the snakes and leopards. The sooner you, my
millennial friend, understand that men are called to things that do not belong
to women, the happier you will be, whether you are a man of woman.
ladies, if the man who charms you does not go into a
dark room ahead of you,
you are a feminized slobette. You have no business keeping company with a man
who has no instinct to protect you. Men are mentally and emotionally created by
God to take on danger better than you.
kid will be able to do lots of things, but he may never be able to be a preacher
or a US Senator. Why? If he cannot deal with his speech issues, there are some
things he will never do. To tell him he can do anything he wants to do is cruel
and wretched, and anyone who tells him that is lying. Now, I would be delighted
if someone could help him conquer this speech issue, but lying to him about it
now is wicked. Get him going on therapy, and then see if he can do those things.
But, stop lying to him.
of Jack Ma and failure
may not be many men in the world who failed more often than Jack Ma. He is now
worth $33 billion, and Alibaba is raging along growing wildly. You can learn how
to fail but eventually succeed from Jack.
think we have to get used to it..... we're not that good."- The system lied
to you when they told you that you are great and have massive potential. You are
really quite capable of failure. Which means nothing if you keep kicking at doors
until one opens. If you reach the point of reality check, and you conclude you
are a failure and have no hope, then you have lied to yourself, and that is extremely
stupid. Your mind will always lie to you when things get tough.
Ma tried to find a job with the police, Kentucky Fried Chicken in China, and he
failed. He was not obsessed with one dream of success. He just wanted a job. His
present success with Alibaba seems so out of sync with his previous efforts at
employment. The key is, he did not define himself in one dream. As a Millennial,
you have been told to decide anything you want to be, and it will come to you
somehow. That simply is not true. The question is, do you want to be the world's
next famous Amos in some line of work or business, or do you want to eat and feed
car dealer friend of mine went to Detroit to see an auto assembly
line in action. He went
on the tour of the Ford plant. They were making cars of all kinds on the line,
and occasionally a station wagon would come through. The place where he was standing
at the time was near the end when the finishing touches were being made. When
a station wagon came through, the tail gate had to be adjusted because it was
actually installed a bit skewed on purpose.
said there was a huge Black man sitting on the sidelines doing nothing. When the
station wagon came through, he walked over to it, opened the tailgate, and shut
it gently. The tailgate would bang without latching. The Black man would get over
the tailgate, in the open position, and lunge down on it. He would then try to
shut it. Again, thunk. He kept giving the tailgate limited lunges downward until
the tailgate went shut with a nice click. Then, the Black guy went and sat down
and waited for the next station wagon to come down the line. His job was to actually
bend the hinges until the door shut right.
are thinking, "What a dull way to make a living and spend your life."
Right, but the Black man had one of the best blue color jobs in America, and he
was feeding his wife and babies. He was happy. There is no promise anywhere that
you will one day have a job that makes you jump out of bed and shout, "Glory"
every Monday morning. You will probably hate Monday mornings the rest of your
life. The question is, can you find a job that makes your Monday mornings at least
a bit more tolerable?
you are laying around the house waiting for that wonder job that will leave you
CEO of the company in five years, you will never find it. Why? Answer: You cannot
make progress laying around home moping. Go get a job where you have a chance
at being hired. This is why there are a bunch of Ph.D.s driving Greyhound buses.
They lost their position in some college, and they decided to get work where they
knew they could. Are you too proud to work for MacDonald's? Right, you will be
flipping hamburgers on the grill. And, if you are actually doing something like
this right now, you are probably mad at life and feel cheated.
is because you have been made into an entitled dandy or don, and you think you
are made for better things. That is a lie. You will go nowhere with this millennial
attitude..... that is a promise. The way to transform McDonald's into a step to
better things is to decide you will be the best employee in your location. This
will put you at the front of the line for management training. Once a manager,
you will be in line to be an area supervisor, and one day you may get an offer
from headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois to move there and become a director.
Once you are in momentum toward the top, your chances of having your résumé
get you the job of your dreams improves exponentially. Your upward movement in
the dull world of hamburgers will tell a potential employer that you are made
of the right stuff to do other things well. While you sit on your ever loving
fat butt now, this CANNOT happen. Herman Cain did not open 4000 locations of Godfather's
Pizza the second week of his career.
warned you up front that I would have no mercy on you if you were a child of attitude
with no will to take counsel. Thus, nine out of ten readers have clicked out of
here. Maybe YOU are different. I have hope that some millennial will read this
article and take the dive into a real life.
is dangerous territory. Whenever we venture to analyze ourselves, we can go too
far and start shredding our personality and end up in a trauma of terror of what
we have become. The suggestions I am giving you are meant to only help you look
back down the road and determine when, where, and how you developed your present
attitudes toward life. The point is to zero in on influences and experiences you
had, how they changed you, and determine how you will reset your life from here
have been done which show that serious or large events that we had to confront
when we were ten years old are the most likely to determine where we go for the
rest of out lives. Get paper and a pen, and make a work sheet of these questions.
So, here are the questions:
Where were you when you were ten?
Who impacted your life the most when you were ten? Think of your parents, relatives,
teachers, pastors and church people, and neighbors in your family circle of friends.
What is it about these people that grabs your memories, good and bad?
Can you recall the messages they were giving you in teaching, discipline, social
activity, and objectionable experiences?
Can you recall anything when you were ten that terrorized you? How did you work
through it, or did you? For my generation it would be the nuclear war alerts when
we all had to dive under our desks. We older folks also remember exactly where
we were standing then we heard President John Kennedy was assassinated. What was
your moment of terror?
What did you want to be when you were ten?
Who were your heroes? What programs on TV did you never fail to watch?
What do you still have from age ten that gives you either good or bad feelings?
lay this all out on a sheet of paper. Meditate on these things, and try to honestly
see how these experiences from age ten followed you the rest of your life and
made you pretty much what you are today.
after finding the patterns of life in your answers, ask yourself what you would
change if you had to go back and live that life over again. What do you think
could have helped you be better today at dealing with life, work, people, and
you own self-image.
chance of this exercise helping you deal with life today will depend on how honest
you were in answering the eight questions, AND how honest you were at seeing that
your life might be easier to deal with if something had been different.
example, if your parents and teachers were telling you that you could be anything
you wanted to be, they lied. The fact is, you simply cannot do anything you want
to do. We all have certain limitations, among which are our education, our race,
our sex, our attitudes, and our physical make up. While you may be quite able
to succeed at something, you have a limited number of choices.
if you cannot deal with the possibility that your parents and teachers lied to
you, then you cannot move on from here. You will be stuck in a millennial mind
set, and all your life you will be mad at the world because you cannot have the
life you want. What God provides will never be good enough.
solution to the present stress you feel is to agree with your history, call the
liars what they are, forgive them, and see where you end up after you replace
the lies with real information about you and the world you live in. It is all
up to you. No one will do this for you. Either face your false belief system,
correct it, and move on to reality, OR die mad and miserable. I pray you find
your way to the real world God made for you.
THE INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE
watching TV and movies about gorgeous successful people living in the lap of luxury.
Here you are, just getting started in the American life, and you are feasting
on people and life styles you may never have. There is NO promise anywhere that
you can catch up with Bill Gates. Stop gawking at his antics on the Internet.
have a choice of friends who are rich and famous, and friends who are surviving
in the middle class, go to the second group. Wealth does not ooze off of the rich
onto you. But, people who are surviving, who found a job that is not prefect but
works, have plenty to teach you in survival skills.
never hang out with people who live on luck. Luck never lasts, and it is extremely
rare. The last person in the world I would want for a friend is someone who won
the lottery. I would never want their luck to cause me to dive into gambling or
sitting in some corner waiting for my number to be called.
THINKING TOO MUCH
you sit alone and brood over some issue of life which you cannot unravel, your
mind gets stuck in unsolved problems. No matter how much you think about it, you
cannot solve it. Stop that now!
has proven that people who brood on unsolved problems in their life send themselves
into depression, and at that point the mind becomes obsessed with the problems.
go find a friend, or an older person, with whom you can talk about the issues
of life. See what their take is on the question.
friend of mine in college and I got to thinking about starting a youth ministry
in which we would take kids by horseback through the High Sierras of California.
We would spend time showing them the lessons learned in nature, teach bush craft
and survival skills, and spend time studying the Bible with them. I still think
it is a great idea. We mulled this over for weeks, and we then decided to pay
a visit to Pop Manning who was an older man whom we both felt was wise in the
Lord. We told Pop Manning of our idea. He told us he liked the idea in principle.
But, he told us that if we started this ministry in the summer, by the end of
summer it might have produced some good results, and we would be tempted to drop
out of college and go "full time" horse trail camping. Pop Manning told
us that we had gotten most of the way through college, and it would be a bad idea
to throw away the final diploma at that time. He suggested we finish college and
see if God still was moving us to our dream. If so, he said to do it by all means.
Later, we both were thankful that Pop Manning arrested us and gave us that advice.
is, you can think yourself into failure, and you can meditate yourself into a
other point is this.....
Do you want to settle for where you are, or will you grow smarter, wiser, and
more useful to this world as you move forward? Watch Jodan Peterson deal with
NOTES AS YOU WATCH THIS. Ask
a friend to watch this with you, and talk about your future. What heresies have
you been taught which you now need to reject in order to be the man or woman God
wants you to be?
AND CULTIVATE SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS
you are with friends, do you all dig out an iPad and dive into cyberspace? If
so, those are not your friends. They are strangers to you. It is time to face
the fact that you grew up with a very narcissist self-image, and you are hanging
out with a mob of narcissists. It is time to shuck them off and go find people
you can care about..... people who care about you.
new neighbors move in, invite them over for a visit. Join a club. To a millennial
joining a club seems like trying to go to Mars. It is time for you to find a larger
world, and there is a larger world to find if you try. If you are single lady
fight down that stupid idea that men are rapists and deadly, or you men, that
women are all feminazis. Dating is still how people meet each other. If you are
attending a local church, stop walking in, sitting through a service, and fleeing
home once a week. Join in the social gatherings of your church, and that includes
helping with kids' programs. You probably have no interest in kids, and that is
a sick place to be. If you ever have a family of your own you will HAVE TO deal
with your own children one day. If kids are just a pain to be avoided now, it
will be nearly impossible for you to be a useful parent to your own children.
you really care about anyone? As a millennial, you may be nothing but a self-serving
prig. You use people to prop up your self-image, and you don't really care who
you hurt along the way. That is how self-loving people are. If you are not that
way now, you WILL be soon. Pay attention now, I am not writing this to amuse myself.
will pay a price to do the right thing, and you will pay a price to do the wrong
you do the right thing and take responsibility for your life, to become productive
and interesting, your millennial friends will decide you are a freak. This is
because most of them are pathologically deformed and should be considered to be
mentally deranged. Thus, they will attack you for doing the right thing with your
life. They will mock at your taking a job simply to get into the work place. They
will accuse you of abandoning the glorious cause of saving Mother Earth.
you do the wrong thing, and you say and do nothing to change your destiny, you
will end up knowing the whole millennial gospel is a lie, and you will go on,
day after day, feeling like a wimp and a loser. For this, your millennial friends
will approve of you and keep you close. But, you will slowly become a moral and
mental midget..... as very small personality.
is all about taking responsibility. You have figured out the propaganda from Sesame
Street to the present was a lie. Fine. So, now what will you do with your life?
Also, how will your survive without friends? As you rethink and remake your life,
you will need new friends. These could be millennials, but only the sort who have
made the transition into the real world. It will be very lonely if you do not
bother to make new friends. The most helpful thing you can hear now is, "That
was a great choice, Fred. I had to go through that in my life, and I can promise
you it will get better as you go along,"
TO COMBAT DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY NATURALLY
am not talking about taking health herbs. I am talking about using the natural
world you live in for therapy.
Get to bed early enough to get real sleep. Trying to go on and on for weeks on
five hours of sleep per night will soon have you miserable, rattled with uncertainty,
and plain depressed. Poor sleep is a killer.
Get sunlight. Vitamin D is only made by getting into the sunlight. A sleep specialist
did a survey of San Diego to find out how much sleep people in that city got.
San Diego is the city in America with the most sunlight hours. He found that the
average person there got ten minutes of sunlight a day. They walked to their car
from inside the house, pushed the garage door opening button, drove to work, parked
in a parking ramp, walked into their work place in shaded walks, and got nearly
no sunlight. This told the specialist why San Diego people were so depressed.
Vitamin D is absolutely essential to a sound mind. During lunch, take a walk around
your work area instead of surfing the web again.
Exercise regularly. Plant a small garden. Put this into your schedule so that
you do it. This, with sunlight, is a great way to get out in nature and breath
air that is oxygenated by trees and green areas. A one mile walk every day gives
you a great opportunity to think outside of your room or home where you tend to
brood too much. It sure works for me.
Stop eating junk food. Junk food is full of toxins added by food preparation people.
Learn to cook things that you like to eat, and invite a friend over to cook something.
Eat more fish for the Omega-3 oil in it. This works wonders for you brain and
mind. The food you eat can have a real effect on your ability to reason and solve
problems in the work place.
Go out in nature, and gather free berries and food that is not polluted. This
sort of activity combines all of the above, especially if you take a friend along.
You may want to ask some old timer to help you learn what foods are out in the
woods in your part of the country. If you grew up in a hunting and fishing family,
and if you are not hunting or fishing anymore, you are a real idiot for leaving
that heritage behind.
you are taking anxiety or depression drugs, while you refuse to do any of the
above things, you are setting yourself up for a drugged destiny that could last
the rest of your life and drive you to suicide. Meanwhile, the world out there
is yours for the taking. And, it is the therapy that will keep you sane.
may have finally concluded that your parents, teachers, and Ph.D.s lied to you
some of the time, maybe nearly all of the time. Have you figured out that they
also told you the truth some of the time? You need to be careful about how you
sort the lies from the truths. These people did you a great disservice by telling
you that you could do anything you wanted to do, or that you are a great success
when you are not any more gifted then thousands of other people your age. Most
of those people back down the road of your life had good intentions, and they
too believed their own lies. They are not the enemy. But, they lied. I hope you
have figured that out by now. You believed them, and you went out into the world
determined to change the world for the better. You have now found out that just
getting a job of any kind, and surviving at all, is a full time job, and someone
else will have to change the world.
you are an older millennial, by now your parents have told you to get out of the
house, right? They raised you from childhood on lies about your glorious destiny,
and now they want the house back and you out working. They too may have realized
they lied to you, and they will never admit it. This is a burden you will have
to try to deal with and not let it make you bitter and hateful toward your parents.
you have not reached this point yet, that means you still believe all the lies
you were told from Sesame Street through university. It is getting late for you
to still be bumping your head against the wall without getting the message that
you need desperately to sort the lies from the truth.
following your dreams. I know, you have been told to chase your dreams since you
were in kindergarten. You remind me of the blind man in a dark closet looking
for a black cat that isn't there. Based on what we learned in this discussion,
along with the reality that you now understand that you were lied to, reset your
goals. Set goals that you can believe in. Long term goals need to be replaced
with short term goals. When you meet a short term goal, start over, and set a
new goal that you can believe is reachable.
that you will get into graduate school is difficult. Perhaps you could find training
programs that will certify you to enter the field you crave at a lower level,
and work your way up into some organization. Many men have done this, only to
find that they are way ahead of the graduate school people, AND NOT IN DEBT.
is the advice of John Pozniak:
you always hate going to work? Yes, it is a way of life. There is a support group
for this. It is called Everyone, and they meet at the bars on Friday night."
a Bible believer, I do not recommend this solution, but how about meeting with
a church brother for coffee, a man who has a very boring job with some rough working
conditions? Find out how he survives. Also, make sure not to let your job ruin
the rest of your life. Do not spend every mealtime belly aching about your work.
It is bad for digestion, and chances are, someone at the table has it worse than
you. Learn to make home time a reward for putting up with the job.
I think God let me have work that was not wretched like so many people experience.
I pastored small churches,
and I had to have a second vocation to add income to the limited amount small
churches could pay me. So, over thirty years ago I took up piano tuning. The blessing
was that my job was to help people make music. If I tuned their piano well, and
if I made repairs that lasted, they were delighted. Many of my customers became
good friends, and some of them treated me like family. The Hispanics in Nogales,
Arizona were my best customers, and they were kind and patient when things did
not go right the first try. The other up side of piano tuning is that there are
only about 4000 tuners in the whole USA. There is a huge shortage, and this means
plenty of work usually.
you are finding that your college education did not prepare you for the market
place, look into a service. You can choose your customers and working hours. Those
tend to be the two worst issues in the work place. Research it so that you pick
a service that has a shortage of people in it. The problem is, as a millennial
you are conditioned to ignore people in other age groups than yours. This was
the way you went all the way through school to university. So, if you want into
some service, understand this..... you will have to learn to like people, all
sorts of them. You will have to listen to strange stories and sorrows. Service
people are, for some reason, considered caring people who will listen to tales
of woe and sympathize. If you don't like people, go get a job in Detroit working
an an auto assembly plant shoving washers into little holes all day long.
a service which is close to your vocational dream. Find a mentor who will help
you learn the trade and coach you through the horror events on the job. Try to
find something that brings your father or mother's heritage into it so they can
stop asking, "Why can't I do this?" Start asking, "How can I do
this?" If you ask yourself WHY you cannot do something, your mind will at
once come up with air tight reasons you cannot succeed at the task. If you ask
yourself HOW to do something, you are already talking like a winner. There is
ALWAYS a reason to not do something if you look for it. Stop that stuff, and start
learning HOW to live life.
IS WHERE YOUR PEERS FOUND WORK REWARDING. I suggest the best place of the
three states in the video is Texas. California will soon be crashing economically.
Almost six million middle class people have fled from California recently. The
good work climate in Texas is even more attractive when you consider the cost
of living is much lower than Calif. and New York.
SOMETHING USEFUL WITH YOUR TIME
off of Twitter and Facebook, and start a blog. Pick a theme that fits your background,
whether gardening, politics, or some other area of life you like. Research the
Web for information, and package it with lots of opinion and humor. Millennials
are lousy at humor. All they know how to do is mock and slander people. Find topics
on things in life that people do not understand. If you have the skill to express
yourself, you can build up a good blog following. Be sure to add advertising to
get some ROI.
fully developed web page is even better. If you can gather and arrange information
so that people really get help from your site, you will get many hits. This article
is on my journal which I put up in 1995, and I am getting plenty of traffic. Be
sure to learn CSS. I am still trying to make the transition to CSS which draws
look for things in your community to give some time to. Help things happen for
people who are doing community events. If you see a man getting a business location
ready to open, offer to help him. Offer your help to your pastor and people in
your church who are talking about some problem with their home that needs attention.
Again, you must like people to be of any use to them. You cannot go to help some
old lady change light bulbs or mow the lawn and be distant and bored with old
people. This is an area where you were raised to be a recluse from people who
are not in your age set. This will haunt you all the rest of your life if you
don't get over it.
get outdoors and into the world God made where technology is a bother. You do
not need an iPad to catch trout. You do not need Google to hunt deer. This sort
of thought is probably very offensive to you. The reason is that you are a couch
potato. Tell me this..... would you rather go kayaking and get caught under a
water fall in a whirlpool and drown, or would you rather die slumped on your couch,
with an iPad in your tight little fist, and your left ventricle of your heart
finally stops because you spend you whole life right in that spot? (This
is a real issue)
will beg off because you live in a city, like New York City. Bah. There are parks
and promenades. You can walk the streets and have loads of distraction. Go around
to one of those chess clubs where the Jewish rabbis battle one another over chess
boards. Sit, and watch, or better, challenge one of them to a game. They will
be delighted to have a younger person participate. Ask a cop if you can ride along
for part of his shift and see what is happening at night. How about volunteering
to help at a museum? Volunteer to help at a mission for street people and lost
good will come to you without a price. The price is all about your determination
to go find what God has waiting for you. All those promises your parents, teachers,
and PhD.s told you about how great you are..... they are a lot of rubbish.
culture of your childhood and youth was dominated by your parents, teachers (mostly
women), and even pastors who told you that you were appointed to slay the dragons
of the profane adult world. So, here you stand on the steps of the university,
diploma in hand, and you really believe you will change the world.
WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD. Get used to that fact.
the poor, Jesus tells you what will happen to your best intentions:
14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them
good: but me ye have not always.
you are not totally committed to Jesus Christ FIRST, your zeal to help the poor
and needy will be a total disaster. You have all the tools of the Liberal Progressive
movement in your mind and soul with which to change the world, and all those tools
will have to be burned and abandoned if you want to be useful on Christ's terms.
after your best efforts, Jesus tells you above that the poor
will still be poor. In many cases, the choices they made they will still make,
and your efforts to lift them up to live the good life will be all used up, and
the poor will still be poor. This does not mean that the poor should be abandoned.
But, it does mean that you need to get another world view and another vision of
YOU. You cannot fix all the evils in the world. Sin and wretchedness will prevail
until Jesus returns and shows you how to help the world.
the nanny and nagging mindset in which the university marinated your brain is
not morally tolerable. The idea that a young adult should go amongst the masses
of older adults in the world and nag them into Political Correctness is wicked
in two ways:
The notion that you are called to trash my culture and slap me into submission
to you and your PC rule book is in total violation of an ancient culture that
demands that you submit to your peers, and especially older adults, to LEARN FROM
THEM. Turning this upside down is madness. You will be hated and marginalized,
and when you enter the work place with your messianic message of PC, they will
avoid you, and you will soon be fired. Get over it now so that you can live a
truly productive life.
The world now thrives only in cultures and nations where people can speak their
minds freely. For you to imagine you can go climb on top of this culture and nag
them into a new vocabulary, with pronouns made up by some snob Ph.D. of yours,
will get you nothing but hate. And, the day could well come when some good old
boy tears your face off for telling him he talks naughty. There is a price to
pay for being a jerk in any culture.
get this straight..... we older people are not sitting here with bated breath
just waiting for a great revelation of how we failed you and the world by being
who we are. We have worked for what we have, and we have our opinions about life
and how to live it. We certainly do have our faults, but your enthusiasm and zeal
to set all things right is obnoxious to us. If you want to join the real world,
welcome. But, if you insist in conquering us and humiliating us, we have ways
of breaking brats like you. For one thing, we will just not hire you. Also, we
will simply walk away and leave you blubbering to yourself when you climb up on
your soap box. This is not because we hate you. Quite the opposite, we feel sorry
for you, but we don't have the time or patience to join your delusional revolution.
Life is too short and precious to waste on narcissist ego driven losers.
On the other hand, if you come along side us, and if you learn the culture of
survival and being useful to society, we will welcome you. It is all up to you.
Get it, change your format, or crash.
things will not come to you
US Constitution recognized, as a right of man, "life, liberty, and the pursuit
of happiness." Happiness and wealth will NOT come to you because you are
a sincere product of Sesame Street and Colombia University. If you want happiness,
you will have to pursue it, friend.
34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
Roosevelt, long before he became President of the USA, decided he needed to be
a rancher. There was nothing in his heritage that prepared him for ranching except
one powerful life quality..... Teddy Roosevelt fiercely believed that the vigorous
life was the only way to live. So, he moved to South Dakota and bought a huge
ranch. He hired two smart men as ranch hands, and they built a large herd of cattle.
All went well, and the ranch thrived, until 1889. That was the year of no summer,
and the year long winter was extremely cold. It killed most of his cattle, and
Teddy had to sell the ranch. Many people would have caved in at that point.
went on to become the Under Secretary of the Navy, rebuild the US Navy, and he
resigned that office to put together a combat regiment for the US Army called
the Rough Riders. These men took San Juan hill in Cuba and defeated the Spanish
Army. Teddy, along the way, had destroyed the power of the Republican Mafia that
ruled New York City. He also totally reformed the NYC Police Department. We was
asked to be Vice President by Republicans who hoped that would get him out of
the way. President McKinley was assassinated later, and Teddy Roosevelt became
President. His tenure was marked by his compassion as well as his fierce "big
being President, Teddy did not retire. He explored The River of Doubt for the
first time in Brazil, and he went on a two year hunting safari in Kenya and Uganda.
His books on these adventures are highly inspiring manly reading.
the long story about Roosevelt? Teddy was a man obsessed with serving his fellow
Americans, and he was committed to living the rough and rugged life. Good things
will NOT come to you. You have to go get them and "seize the moment."
9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no
work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
MESSAGE IS ALL ABOUT YOUNG WOMEN DEMANDING. There is nothing here about
what a young woman must give and contribute to a relationship. This is a classic
"Me First" message, the sort you have heard from childhood up. A relationship
will only be as good as you make it by selfless giving. If you are a "me
first" young lady, I can promise you that you will spend your life hating
men, get divorced, and end life sitting in a nursing home reading about feminist
YOU THE PRODUCT OF DEFECTIVE PARENTING? If this is you, you now need to
resolve to unlearn the false values your parents taught you. If I were you, sir,
I would look for an older man whose family are orderly, his kids live a decent
life, and he is well employed. Come right out and tell him you want a man to whom
you can be accountable. Ask him to read this article, and tell him you are on
a journey to sanity. That may be a pastor, but probably not. That man will probably
be a faithful man in your local church. If you are a young lady, find an older
woman who has similar life order and zeal.
EXAMPLE OF A WORTHLESS WHINE You will not get anywhere reviewing all of
your obstacles. Jobs are being found. Unemployment is down. Someone is hiring.
You simply have to fill out job applications until you are cross eyed. Inventory
people you know who are employed, and ask them to bird dog for you and say a good
word for you. No matter how lowly the work, take a job, even if you don't see
how it can help your upward movement. Master the job you do find. Stop considering
your job as a stop gap before you get your dream job. No one notices a so so employee,
and that employee never escapes from that job to go on to better things if he
makes no extra effort to be the best.
have been taught that the world owes you a good life
owe you nothing. Deal with it.
all you want, but until you offer me a product to buy, or until you offer to clean
my home or mow my lawn, I will keep my cash in my tight little fist. The economy
of supporting free loaders is what is killing the United States. We support millions
of free loaders and aliens because the hooter hoots. The Liberal mob wail for
more money to be shelled out to non-producers, and all that money comes from tax
payers, your neighbors, not the government.
this mean I do not help the needy at all? Certainly not. I do help people whom
I believe can no longer help themselves. That is my Christian duty for Christ.
But, you are NOT needy. You are in great health, and you need to go find a job
and take it, even if you have to start your working career at McDonald's.
third of you millennials reading this article are still living at home with your
parents. There is a notion abroad that these free loaders have a RIGHT to sponge
off of their parents. The solution to this question is to look at nature. When
a baby bird is old enough to fly, the mother bird tips the baby bird out of the
nest, forcing it to fly and fend for itself. When a lion cub gets old enough to
mate, be becomes a threat to the daddy lion, and daddy drives the grown cub off
to fend for himself. This does not mean it is always easy to fend for oneself,
but it does teach us that you are an irresponsible brat if you insist on hanging
around your bedroom clear into your thirties when you could find a room, hire
on at McDonald's, and pay your own way.
does not imply that there are exceptions. But, when there are exceptions it is
because of one of two things:
The kid is mentally or physically handicapped and needs continuing help from his
parents to survive.
The kid is an integral part in the ongoing enterprise, and the parents need him
still at home. This is best illustrated in some farm families where the son's
help on the farm is urgently needed for the farm to survive.
if you do not have a handicap so that you need your parents to survive, or if
they do not need you for their ongoing enterprise to succeed, get your butt out
the door, you free loading lush. Who told you that you have a right to free room
and board because of your biological connection with your parents. You live in
a social order that is thousands of years old, and the honorable thing for you
to do is leave home once you are able to fend for yourself.
know, you cannot find a job that is good enough for a genius university graduate
like you, right? I have news for you, my friend..... your university diploma did
not come with a list of companies who are obligated to hire you and make you a
famous CEO in ten minutes. All you got from the education system, if you were
smart enough to choose schools that taught you real skills, is the opportunity
to pursue happiness. So, get your butt on down the street, knock on doors, and
take the first job you can find that will allow you to survive. There is no promise
ANYWHERE that you can be what you want to be, or that you will get paid and pampered
according to your expectations.
side thought is in order. Did you major in university in a major that was not
clearly targeted at a career, like Philosophy or History? I don't care if you
got a MA, your degree is not very marketable. The vast majority of companies do
not need a philosopher. If this is you, either go back and start over in technology
or engineering, or be content to find whatever job you can. Later, on down the
road, you may find a way to move to some company which will train you for better
you sit at home longing to take Warren Buffett's empire away from him, you are
worthless as tits on a boar hog in a Louisiana swamp. And, you are worthless to
your parents as well.
you have a university degree, there are people out in the world who may be willing
to hire you. The job they offer you most certainly may not be in the field, or
up the organization you crave, but it is a job. Take it, stop whimpering, and
decide you will be the best at what you do. This will get someone's attention
up the organization, and they will indeed promote you, or they may offer to send
you for training paid for by the company. You see, all you learned at the university
was how wonderful you are. You did not learn anything about civics, your history
was totally warped by Liberals, and you have no world view worth dying for. You
spent so much time in classes on social order and liberal arts that you really
do not have the training to start many jobs without more extra training.
experience may be of help to you. I graduated from college with a Christian Education
degree. I applied to a paper company in Michigan, and they hired me. I don't think
they were impressed with my college major, but they must have assumed that the
discipline of getting a degree meant I had some zeal to perform. I ended up in
low management developing a sample area for a paper company with thirteen factories
around the USA. All I knew about paper production is that it came from trees.
But, by the grace of God I learned in a hurry, and it was a great time in my life.
My experiences in that company taught me about the life of a factory worker, and
that helped me be a pastor to working men with dead end jobs.
is the last time you wrote a letter, with a pen, to anyone? You are basically
a child of the buttons you can push. In the real world of work and commerce there
are thousands of skills needed which you do not have. You are now urgently in
need of being trained to actually function in the commercial world. Even an MBA
is a joke to those in big companies who hire and fire. They know your university
was, in fact, nothing but an over developed day care center. They know that, once
they hire you, you will have to be trained for any job they give you. And, they
know that your instinct will be to play instead of work, just like you boozed
and blew pot all the way through university.
I mad at you? Answer: Absolutely not. My experience in life as a pastor, in helping
people solve life problems is this..... The sooner I can get you to step back
and take a critical look at your whole life, as well as what you now have to offer
the world, the sooner I will see you take positive steps to rethink and remake
yourself. There is no other solution. You have been pampered all your life by
people who told you how very special you are, and I need to tell you that you
are a loser and on your way to self-destruction. A great percentage of your fellow
millennials will end up on psychotropic drugs with their brains falling out, and
many of them will commit suicide. I have this hope that, if I show you what a
mess the world has made you into, you will decide to fix it NOW.
you want to make a fresh start in a way that will really make a difference in
your prospects, go to prayer meeting at your local church, stand up, and ask the
folks to pray for you to find a job, any job, so that you can get on with your
life. All those folks know what a lush you are. Some have prayed that you will
one day have an epiphany from God that sends you into a real life, while some
at the church may be mocking you in a rather crass way. If you let them know you
are now on your way out the door into the market place to do what God finds for
you to do, you may be surprised what turns up out of thin air as people share
your new zeal to live a real life.
you do, DO NOT post to your friends on social media that you are looking for a
job. Those are NOT real friends. They are your crutch. They represent a drug you
need to imagine you have a full life. You need real live people with whom you
relate face to face. If you will not make this shift, you are done already. You
will get help from social media just as much as you will find a job listed on
a beer bottle. Your best friends will be found in a local church, and not a mega
church, but a smaller Bible believing church.
Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought
nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And

have no ability to be content. You are 100% convinced that someone somewhere owes
you a good life, and there is no one out there who believes that, at least no
one other than your Ph.D. friends from the university. And, as you have noticed
by now, the Ph.D. is gone, and you are on your own.
man, DO NOT let the world feminize you
you kissing up to a princess? This is a girl whose Mommy told her she was a princess,
and she is now in her twenties, and she KNOWS she is special. She sends selfies
to you and all her friends, and she makes it clear that men are to be blamed for
all the world's evils. If this is your alleged girl friend, you are a gullible
fool. She is using you to exalt her ego as you kiss up to her and cheer for her
as she attacks men. She wants you to be her cur dog and roll over and pee on yourself
whenever she jerks your leash.
you been told that you and all men are potential rapists and that you abuse women
by just walking into the room? If you sucked up the propaganda dumped on you in
High School and university about the way men abuse women, you will find that you
are not wanted in the working world. This is because real men who manage companies
are privately very agitated at the feminist mind set now dominating, and they
do NOT want a sissy man tip toeing around their work place kissing up to women.
is a serious backlash rising from men who are avoiding feminazi women. These men
do not become brutes and abuse women, but they stand their ground and resist the
propaganda. I have a series of articles on this journal just for you.
if you are a feminazi millennial, and if you are waging war on men, brace yourself
lady. We men are attacking back. There is a growing movement among men, not to
do harm to real ladies, but to totally marginalize feminists who get a rush out
of trashing men. History is on our side. God made men to be defenders and to be
warriors. You are going to be thrashed eventually. In the work place men are finding
ways to destroy feminazies and send them right back out the door. You will be
a lot happier if you learn to share this world with men, and start making friends
of masculine God fearing men.
THIS WHO YOU REALLY ARE? The world used to marginalize ego driven people
as misfits. The world still feels that way about the issue, and that is what they
think of you if you are a selfie freak. The selfie thing is simply a virtual manifestation
of the warped mind of millennials. You must come to believe this, or you will
go right on making a nuisance of yourself to everyone who knows you.
John Kennedy warned America of the global conspiracy moving against the USA. Almost
no one really believed him, and Obama did his best to force America into the Globalist
Community. This system is the source of the propaganda you were taught in school
and university. You need to understand that both Herbert and George Bush, and
probably Ronald Reagan, were forced to support the New World Order Globalist Agenda.

So too, without a constant flow of income the Mega Church will shrivel up and
blow away. This is why money and the giving of it is a perpetual topic. Is this
how you are being mentally and spiritually warped?

evidence is in. Managers report that Millennials crave play, and if the employer
does not give them play time, they get grumpy about their job. Managers also report
that millennials like to arrive at work late and leave early. They may do what
is expected of them, but they never make any extra effort to innovate.

in tech support for a specialty company, and he found that they lacked a way for
one area of their support program to talk to the rest of the system. So, he invented
an app which did that and made lists of customers as well. It shortened call time,
made customers happy, and everyone in the call center downloaded it.
son got high praise from the management for adding this app, and it put him in
line for promotion. What my son learned was that the key to promotion was to not
keep his app secret in order to make himself faster and shine as to call time.
The lesson learned was give it away, and make the whole company run better. Just

men are stalking women and want nothing but to put women into bondage to themselves

this myth for you.
friends among women are probably all feminist freaks. I promise you this.....
if you marry one of them, they will make a house husband of you, and before long
they will start looking for a Type A man behind your back. I have studied this,
and it is getting to be VERY common with millennial women. You need a total reset
as to what makes up a decent woman whom you would like to spend the rest of your
life with. I will tell you where you will find her. She is attending a very conservative
Christian church in your community. She has not been brought up to think she is
entitled to be a princess, and she has no instincts to nanny and nag men into
submission. She also does not believe recreational sex is godly. Ideally, she
has been home schooled.

a home is not an asset if you are still paying on it.
An asset, a real one, is something you own that is totally paid off, and it is
gaining value or producing income for you. Owning a piece of undeveloped real
estate outright is not an asset. Owning a duplex, living in one apartment, and
paying for the mortgage from the renter of the other apartment, is an asset working
inherited your uncle Joe's stamp collection. Should you keep it or sell it? A
stamp collection is a true asset because collectable stamps keep gaining value.
But, it will not pay you anything until you sell it. Can you live without selling
it? If so, keep it for twenty years at least. It will be greatly more valuable.
Do keep in mind that this asset can burn up in a house fire, and it can be stolen.
Make some provision for fire and flood, and do not tell everyone about your stamp
used the stamp collection as a way to teach you that assets are hard to come by,
but when you have them and own them outright, you have made some serious progress
to prepare for the end of your life years.
it forward. When you help people in need, you are giving God a good reason to
bless you one day when you are in trouble. If you have significant discretionary
cash, look for people, as you go through your days, who are genuinely in need,
people you can help.
the other hand, there are people, often in your extended family, who will learn
of your good job or cash flow, and they will regularly hit you up for some cash.
If you let them use you in this way, one, they will not respect you, and, two,
they will never pay you back. Do not let the sharks turn you into a welfare source.
of the ways I like to give is when I am shopping and I hear a kid say, "Mommy,
can we have such and such?" The Mom may tell the kid they cannot afford it.
I step in and ask if I can buy it for the kid. Always ask so the Mom is not offended.
If she says she does not need the help, I tell her that this is one way I give
to the Lord, and I enjoy the blessing of seeing some kid get something he likes.
I suggest she consider my giving as God doing the giving. This almost always blesses
the Mom as much as the kid.

do not admire the man of timid peace. We admire the man who embodies victorious
effort; the man who never wrongs his neighbor, who is prompt to help a friend,
but who has those virile qualities necessary to win in the stern strife of actual
life. It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. In this
life we get nothing save by effort. Freedom from effort in the present merely
means that there has been stored up effort in the past.
man can be freed from the necessity of work only by the fact that he or his fathers
before him have worked to good purpose. If the freedom thus purchased is used
aright, and the man still does actual work, though of a different kind, whether
as a writer or a General, whether in the field of politics or in the field of
exploration and adventure, he shows he deserves his good fortune. But if he treats
this period of freedom from the need of actual labor as a period not of preparation,
but of mere enjoyment, he shows that he is simply a cumberer of the earth’s surface,
and he surely unfits himself to hold his own with his fellows if the need to do
so should again arise.
mere life of ease is not in the end a very satisfactory life, and, above all,
it is a life which ultimately unfits those who follow it for serious work in the

stamina. This involves physical stress as well as mental stress. It is not enough
to be a chess master. That is a great fete of mental discipline. But, a real man,
and some ladies, push themselves physically.
suggest you purchase a good hunting rifle. A 30-06 from Academy or Cabela's is
a great start. Get out to a gun range, and master the gun. Finally, buy a hunting
license, and head for the woods. Take an older experienced hunter, and ask him
to teach you hunting and woods craft. Learn how to track deer or other wild game.
Kill a deer, and learn to dress it. The venison that you bring home to your family

a .450 Marlin (as seen in the above photo). This gun will deal with any North
American big game. It is a heavy gun, and it kicks like a mule, but that is what
it takes to knock down an elk or moose. This gun will also do for most African
big game. Now, THERE is a dream for you..... a hunting safari to Africa. In that
case, you will need to move up to a 500 magnum.
invest in a good hand gun for self-defense and to finish off game you shoot. This
will save money by avoiding using the heavy bullets for the final kill shot. A
hand gun will also put you among the men who use their Second Amendment rights

to defend his family. I prefer a revolver because they are easy to use, and they
cannot be fired accidentally. A Colt or Taurus 45 caliber revolver is ideal.

to the lady millennial, I am not suggesting you become a mean mamma feminist,
but you too need to consider the strenuous life. Great women have been active

was considered madness in those days because women died so easily in tropical
Africa. Florence Baker
not only survived the exploration safari, she nursed her husband through illness
that nearly killed him. This is the kind of lady from long ago who would not be
content until she had shot her own lion and rhino. A real lady who can retain
her feminine grace while tramping through an African swamp is a lady of priceless
quality and character. If you hit the link for Florence above, you will read a
story that will charge your imagination.

rules a real man lives by:
aim for ease. Aim for action and commitment to do
the world as it is.
Stop letting the media and YouTube define the world for you. Also, stop letting
external talking heads define the world for you. Learn to make up your own mind
about what you are looking at.
complain or make excuses.
Ask why you failed and how to avoid repeating your blunders. Whatever you do,
stop blaming other people for your mistakes and failures.
quit. Make the company
fire you. Start over, and make the thing work next time.
pity anyone, especially
yourself. Pity is for people who want to destroy themselves. When you see someone
whom everyone pities, ask yourself what you could to to make their life better.
Nothing in life comes to us suddenly. Anything we do not have to work hard for
has very little value to us in the end. Believe that, or you will drown in self-pity
good people. I understand
that the epiphany of learning the whole world has lied and lied to you is a bummer.
But, you cannot let yourself turn against people. Some people are honest, and
you need their ideas. Beware of fleeing to the god of skepticism. Learn to do
a reality check on people, and when they pass, learn to trust them as friends.
back, watch until you can see what direction everyone is going, and YOU go the
other way. Stop chasing your dreams. Start looking for the less obvious, and see
if God will let you find a way to go in life that makes you happy. The first part
of being happy is knowing that you are pulling your weight and justifying your
knew a ranch worker in Arizona who castrated calves once every year along with
other ranch hands. He told about the banding process, but he said the ranchers
preferred castration with the knife. He explained the reasons exactly like Mike
Rowe learned. But, this guy then said, "Hey, we gotta have breakfast."
What he meant was that, after they had castrated all the lambs, they fried up
the testicles for breakfast right there on the range. Going the other way means
you will be strange to some people, but you will be happy.
I am getting at, maybe, is that your college degree may be a sure ticket to a
life of misery. Is there another option, that everyone avoids, which would make
you a lot happier..... maybe that dream you had when you were ten years old?
is time to take inventory.
in your family has a good job and cares about you? Ask them if they could help
you get a job where they work. Who among your friends, fellow millennials, has
made the transition into the real world? See if they could help you. Is there
any sort of work that sounds interesting even though you think it is beneath you?
If there is, find an opening in that kind of company. At least it will be something
you feel good about. Fill out job applications, and check back later. Try to show
up in person if the job is not technology. Do not dress like a baboon and show
up with hair down to your waist, men. Lady millennials, do not apply for a job
dressed like a whore. You could end up being hired for your body. Could you work
at a call center doing customer support? I know, that is beneath you, right? Well,
it will get you moving and paying your way, so suck it up, and get your butt employed.
do you want to change about YOU? Do not make a long list please. It will overwhelm
you. Identify a couple of things that need urgent change in your thinking and
how you are now living. Fix those two things, and later sit down and flesh out
the next two things that need to be changed. If you turn your whole world upside
down all at once, you will find that the whole process is chaotic. Your world
is strange to me, but based on God's plan for a men and woman, I would suggest
you get yourself employed somewhere first. Also, start shucking off social media
friends and replace them with real face to face friendships, wherever you have
to go to find them.
what will you do to cleanse your soul and mind of your upside down thinking? If
you won't take advice from me, will you ever take advice from people who have
lived life before you?
12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto
counsel is wise.

in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his
delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth
forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever
he doeth shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which
the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knoweth the
way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

WORD TO PARENTS- HOW TO AVOID MAKING MILLENNIALS OF YOUR KIDS
may be a millennial AND a parent. Will you raise your son or daughter under the
same model of lies and deceptions that your parents and teachers used on you?
If you want to be sure you raise mentally and emotionally balanced kids, please
consider the following:
Kill the instinct to blame other people or circumstances
are a fool if you tell your kid he is doing just fine when, in fact, he has done
poorly in something. He needs to learn the adult skill of stepping back and asking
what he could have done better. Who could he have learned from? What did he fail
to add to his skill set? Was he just plain lazy and diddling?
help him find out what is lacking if he needs help. You are a lazy slob of a parent
if you just tell him he did the best he could, and everyone who tries hard is
a winner. That simply is not always true. Stop praising your kids for doing poorly
because you think they will become discouraged if you tell them the truth. Help
them learn new lessons from failure. If they are in over their head because they
simply lack the skills of ability, they will go on into adult life expecting people
to admire them when they perform poorly.
the worst. What would you think of a parent who tells a kid with no legs that
he is really just as good as any other kids at running? Your kid's limitations
may not be that extreme, but think again before you pass over your kid's limitations
and inspire him to think he is perfect.
It is OK to be guilty and admit it
never learn to confess sin, and for that reason, most of them will go to Hell.
lt is impossible to become a born again Christian and deny sin and depravity in
oneself. Also, it is impossible to learn the preciousness of forgiveness until
one confesses sin.
still remember one day, after I had been very naughty, Dad sitting on my bed and
reading I John 1:9 to me.
John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Dad encouraged me to confess my sin to Jesus, and I did. Afterward, Dad told me
I was totally clean again and that I should determine to start fresh and whip
that sin in me. I recall the relief I felt as I thought about the fact that, with
God, I could get clean and start all over again. Of course, Dad tried hard to
be an example of God, and he tried to never remind me of confessed sin in the
kids will never be clean and able to start over after failure or offenses if they
do not learn that guilt is caused by sin and offending God and other people. The
day your kid learns to confess offenses against other kids or adults will be the
day your kid is well on his way to adulthood. Indeed, millions of adults around
us have never learned the maturity of confessing sin and cleaning up after themselves.
You are the center of the universe lie
you call your daughter "Princess," and you tell your son he is exceptional,
your kids will grow up expecting the adult world to pamper them and tolerate their
greed and sloppy manners. They will be pompous snobs, and when they are adults
they will have very few loyal friends. We are not talking about affection, which
kids need. We are talking about exalting your kids way above reality. It is a
LIE, and they will one day realize you lied to them when the world slaps them
down. That could result in your kids deciding you were liars.
Christian parent teaches their kids to do things for other people, to show kindness
to little children, and to volunteer when someone needs help. As a parent, it
may be YOU who is calloused and crass about people in need. What example are you
not confuse this admonition with the natural and God-given love you should have
for your kids, and they for you. Kids need to be loved, but godly love does NOT
include flattery. If you flatter your kids, they will be brats until the day they
2:10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy
soul; 11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: 12
To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward
things; 13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; 15
Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: 16 To deliver thee
from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
your pastor flatters a guest speaker before the man speaks, discuss this later
with your kids, and show them from the Bible that this is evil. Tell them to never
flatter other people like your pastor does. Flattery has become one of the most
wretched aspects of pastors of churches today. I don't know how this happened,
but it is wicked, and it gives the youth the impression that flattery is a service
to others. Flattery is, in fact, always associated with evil in the Bible.
Fear is not the end of the world- Face it, and move on
ability to feel fear is absolutely essential to our survival.
Corbett, the Englishman who killed a large number of deadly man-eating tigers
in northern India, said he had developed a sixth sense. This sense would make
him feel fear when no other senses were signaling anything. When he felt this
strange sense, he at once assumed a tiger was about to get the best of him and
try to kill him. Obeying this sense of fear saved his life several times.
growing up in Africa, I developed a real sense of fear of certain snakes and animals.
I knew that if I violated essential cautions I would one day get nailed and end
up deathly sick, or even die. Dying of a cobra bite is very painful and mentally
horrifying. There are certain things your kids need to fear. Fear that is irrational
is destructive. All fear that serves our survival also needs to be presented with
alternatives. Your kids need to know the difference between senseless fears and
survival fears. Talk about it with them.
will give you a classic example. Virtually every time people get lost in the wilderness,
they have violated constructive fear signals with thoughtless of overconfidence.
Top priority is to tell someone where you are going. Do not change the plan without
telling them. When going into the wilderness, find a map of the area to carry
with you. Never assume you know enough to survive. Carry trail snacks, water,
and fire lighting supplies in case you get lost. Take an iPad with GPS features.
Take a compass. When walking along, do not become hopelessly fascinated with the
surroundings. Regularly make mental note of landmarks, like huge trees, high boulders,
and major hills. These can be used, if you get lost, to find your way back. Once
you realize you are lost, STOP. Do not keep going for any reason, unless you see
homes or people in the distance. Make that spot you are at your temporary headquarters.
Make short hikes away from the headquarters spot, but return before you lose sight
of it. The idea is to try to see something from a hilltop that is civilization.
If you cannot solve your situation, stop the panic. Sit in one place, even if
you have to spend the night there, and do not keep walking. Wait for people who
miss you to find you. One last thought. As you walk in the wilderness, break a
small branch regularly so that it hangs down. You may slash a small tree with
a knife. These signs will guide anyone trying to find you.
suspect all of those wilderness suggestions make perfect sense to you. But, before
you read the above paragraph, I bet you had no idea about most of those things,
right? The thing that I just did for you is to instill in you a healthy fear of
doing stupid things in the wilderness/. That fear will return to you in a flash
when it is needed, and you may one day thank me for it.
often have no fear. This is because they have not been raised with caution being
presented to them. They are told life will always be good for them, so when some
real danger catches up with them, and when they are harmed physically, mentally,
or socially, they cave in and flee to depression and psychotropic drugs. The surest
way to send you kid to the B Ward of the state hospital is to protect them from
the reality of bad things in life.
we were caught in the midst of a Marxist coup in Ethiopia in 1974, we woke every
morning to the sound of machine gun fire as the Marxist rebel soldiers slaughtered
60 to 70 business men and political leaders. This is not a good way to wake up
every morning. We knew that the Marxists were following the revolution plan of
the Chinese ruler Mao Tse Tung, which suggested to never hurt or imprison foreigners
so that foreign media had no story to publish. Thus, we were safe, but we heard
the rattle of death, and we knew the whole nation was in terrified silence. If
your kid has nothing as a point of reference to fall back on at such times, he
will go mad.
deadly mistake is for parents to tell their kids not to defend themselves. Along
with this is the false narrative that weapons of defense are evil. No weapon is
evil in and of itself. The weapon is only evil because the user is evil. Teach
your kids that they can defend themselves and that they are responsible to God
for defending the defenseless. Part of this training is to teach your kids to
sense danger and avoid it.
OF A FOOL WITH NO FEAR This
man played the fool. His lions were not as tame as he imagined. He went into the
enclosure and inspected something that the lion considered to be his. The result
was deadly, and he was lucky to be alive later. The man's huge mistake was to
have no fear of wild cats. He also should not have run from the lion if it was
as tame as he imagined. Lack of fear can get you killed, fired, or thrown under
the bus by society.
10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
your kid has no fear of God, he will end up going to Hell. The best way to teach
the usefulness of fear is to teach kids the fear of God.
Kids are not in charge of the family
have come close to slapping kids in homes I visited when they came charging into
the kitchen and yelled, "Mom, get me a bowl of ice cream. I am starving."
year our kids got to order up what they wanted to eat. That was on their birthday.
That made ordering something a privilege and a gifted moment. Otherwise, no one
told Mom what to cook for dinner. We had a rule, "Eat what's set before you,
and ask no questions." In fact, you could ask what it is called, but never
ask what it was. It could be something really weird, and you will have to eat
it anyway. The only time my parents had mercy on me was with liver. They said
when I tried to eat liver I seemed to actually turn green.
the brat above was also totally rude. Millennials are famously rude and crude.
They have been pampered so thoroughly that they behave toward other people like
drill sergeants. This ends up losing them jobs, or worse, preventing them from
even getting hired. This is because employers do not like to be talked down to,
and they don't tolerate a total lack of civility. Teach your kids to say "please"
and "thank you" where it fits. And, teach them to SPEAK UP when they
are addressed by older adults. Rational people HATE to be ignored by brats staring
at their iPad. Also, teach them to call men "Sir", and ladies "Mame".
Do not let them use the PC pronouns now promoted in universities. There is a huge
backlash against this, especially by Type A Men. Those are the men whom your kids
will ask for employment. Whatever you personally think about the PC culture, do
not make your kids PC. They will only suffer for it later, and that would suit
me just fine. Real men do not tolerate PC rubbish talk.
kid needs to understand that those in authority, Mom, and especially Dad, will
decide where you go to church and where you go on vacation. I have a friend who
takes one daughter to one church on Sunday morning, and the other daughter has
to be hauled across town to a different church. Big whup. Those girls are managing
Daddy very well, and they will do the same to their husbands. They are being allowed
to be ruling princesses now. But, one day, they will get themselves fired when
they try to manage their boss at work.
to eat what you don't like, taking orders you don't want to hear, and doing tasks
that are messy and smelly are essential to a kid who will be getting on with life
in a few more years.
boarding school in Africa we were all given jobs to do. The one I hated most was
washing dishes. My hands and arms would come out pale and wrinkled like a prune,
and it was hot sweaty work. I realized that I could volunteer to clean the bathroom
and shower area, and by hosing the whole room down at once, I could be done in
short order. So, I always asked to clean the toilets.
in college I worked on the ground crew of the college in the afternoon to pay
for my tuition. The college had an equestrian skills class, and they had the horses
in a coral on the lower property. I took a look at that coral, and I figured no
one would want the job of cleaning up the horse manure. You see, I had learned
from living in Oklahoma that horse manure dries fast, and cleaning it up is not
really that messy. I volunteered for that job, and I was done in a flash, and
the coral was spotless. In the end, I had a lot of time on my hands, and I could
then pick some other job to do which I liked.
I learned was based on what other kids hated to do. Certain jobs have some sort
of stigma to them, and any kid who figures that out will have a lot easier life
if he learns to ask for the unpopular things. But, he will not learn that if you
don't force him to experience it now. Also, after he does something he hates to
do, if he does it well, compliment him and thank him.
have mastered raising your son when, one day, he does that nasty job without being
asked to do it.
need to add a thought to this point. Teach your kid, no, DEMAND FROM YOUR KID,
that he treat other people with respect. He needs to be broken of the self-love
he was taught on Sesame Street and at school so that he learns to despise the
lie. Then, teach him, BY EXAMPLE, to show kindness and respect to older adults
reason your kid is rude and impatient with older and younger people is because
you let them become totally self-centered and narcissistic. Rudeness is a direct
result of being in love with yourself. All other people are a bother, and anyone
who is more clever than you are is the enemy and needs to be boldly insulted.
If this is your son or daughter, you have raised a monster, and they will one
day be in the street screaming hate in the name of Progressive Liberalism. You,
dear parent, are a total failure. The only way to salvage the mess you have made
is to sincerely apologize to your son or daughter, and promise them you will do
your best to teach them decency and kindness. If they rebel, punish them fiercely
so that they realize the lush spoiled life is over. If they have already left
home I have no idea what you can now do about this. Some bad things cannot be

The schools are awarding kids who totally fail as it they accomplished something.
That is insane. There are lessons to be learned in losing. One lesson is to sit
back and consider WHY I lost or came in in tenth place. This presents the solution
for the next trial by fire.
is a huge difference between losing and trying hard. Doing one's best, and then
losing, is hard to deal with, but the best athletes had to go through a period
of losing before they won. The difference between a good musician and an exceptional
musician is practice..... ten thousand times.
you tell your kids you expect them to win and be the best, you set them up for
misery, especially if your kid has not got the IQ and skills to be the best. The
worst place for this parental insanity in America is Little League. The kid is
enrolled by his father, and his Dad may play ball with him by the hour. But, the
cruel part is when the father tells the kid he expects him to be the best player,
and the kid just cannot make that level of skill.
key is to teach your child to be the best version possible of who he is. Whatever
skills and mental ability God gave him should be used to its maximum to be the
best he can be. Millennials are hit by reality when they enter the job market,
and they find that their education is woefully deficient, and the world is not
waiting with bated breath to see them jump through all the hoops. That has already
3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things
which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus
minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this
unto you. 16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by
the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
did not want to out perform other Christians. He wanted to be the best he could
be in Christ Jesus.
Kids become productive adults by learning responsibility
you want your kid to have a happy carefree childhood. Why make him do chores,
and later, why suggest he go get a part tune job? I will tell you why. Your kid
needs a work ethic BEFORE he exits High School. He may see his Dad and Mom observing
a work ethic, but he needs to personalize it.
took five years to get through a four year college degree program. The reason
was that I worked on the side to pay my tuition and board to the college. When
I graduated I was debt free.
when a kid works to pay for his first car, he will appreciate it more and not
wreck it or trash it driving it like he is in a NASCAR race all the time. He may
also learn to maintain it for himself when he realizes what it costs to repair.
issue though is that your darling millennial will have no idea what a job means
until he graduates from college, that is, if you let him just sit on his butt
and play computer games as he grows up. He will play all the way through college,
and his education will be a lot of rubbish when he tries to use it in the work
son has worked in technology, and when he was promoted to team lead, or where
he had to lead a group of employees, he found that the millennials had no idea
what a work ethic was. They showed up late and left early. They played online
instead of working, and they never made that extra effort to please the people
over them. They were basically dead weight. My other son worked for Comp USA before
they went away, and he saw the same thing. The job of managers was to be a baby
sitter to millennials and try to coax them into productivity. If you don't want
to deal with your kid being fired every second week when he enters the work place,
get his butt moving NOW.
disciplining and training a child is not about making his life comfortable, it
is all about conditioning his way of thinking about life. A narcissist minded
kid will be a dead beat and hanging around under your feet until you are 75 years
Pain happens, both emotional and physical
are snakes in the woods. Avoiding the woods because of the snakes makes a very
small world. Learning bush craft, which includes how to avoid snakes, is essential
to survival in the woods. Learning life craft is essential to survival in the
The bald faced hornet is a very nasty critter. He flies with has body wrapped
around under him with his stinger pointed ahead of him as he flies. This means
that if he flies into you, even if he had no malice toward you, he will sting
you if he flies into you. What a nasty surprise that is. People who live in the
country learn to keep an eye open for bald faced hornets.
kid will have his feelings hurt at times. He will experience things that, while
he did not deserve them, still they happened, and he will be tempted to feel that
life is unfair to him. You MUST teach your kid that life is never fair. Ugly things
happen to good people. These experiences will help your kid learn to deal with
life when it goes wrong. If you teach him to buck up and take some hard times
along the way, he will do that when he leaves home.
you don't teach your kid to roll with the punch when bad things happen, he will
be getting jobs and getting fired five days later for many years until he learns
what you refused to teach him.
Mom and Dad are not responsible for kid's emotions
kid does not need you to feel everything for him. He needs to live through most
of the bad feelings, and he needs to be told to suck it in when he goes bonkers
emotionally over small things. If he gets large doses of your sympathy and support
every time he gets upset, he will do that when he finally gets hired one day,
and he will at once get himself fired.
are highly susceptible to become emotional and frantic when bad things happen.
God made women to be more emotional and sensitive than men. So, add in the feminist
propaganda that women are downtrodden, and you have a perfect formula for a spoiled
brat. No manly gentleman will be interested in marrying your daughter if you let
her keep raging every time something bad happens. Then again, perhaps Mommy is
a raging bat when things go bad. That assures you that your daughter will be a
feminazi basket case when she leaves home. No sane employer will be willing to
put up with her.
an example to your kid. When you experience some ugly thing because people let
you down, or when the boss asks you to do something unreasonable, show, by your
self-control, how to control your emotions. Your son will have no better lesson
than to see Dad control his emotions.
like to talk to other drivers in traffic and keep it jolly.
Like, "Come on dear lady, be brave now and change lanes on me." Or,
"Stop staring in the mirror Fred. I promise I will not run into you for pulling
out and cutting me off." See if YOU can tone down your own responses. Your
kid will pick up on this in a flash, I promise you. My kids loved to see what
I would say when someone surprised us in traffic. I also talked back to TV commercials
long ago, and my kids would rush downstairs to hear my commentary on the commercials.
Like, "Oscar Meyer wieners are made from the best cuts..... the utter, the
tail, the nose, the ears- anything that hangs on the outside." To this day,
my kids are masters at sarcasm in the face of ridiculous information and interruptions.
other words teach your kid to become a happy skeptic and use jolly sarcasm to
defuse the ugly moments. Also, develop the art of making puns. They are the lowest
form of humor, but they sharpen the mind and brighten dull moments. I had a friend
long ago with whom I would have pun battles to see who gave out first.
a parent who wants a criminal for a son would do his homework for him. It is one
thing to make the kid do his home work, but it is a crime to do it for him. I
am not talking about helping him understand the math principles, but it is wicked
to do the problem solving for him. So, when he walks out the door with his home
work half done, he needs to have a long hard look at "50%- F."
about checking to see if all his things are packed to go to school? Why do you
do that? He needs to get to the lunch period one day and find he has no lunch
because he did not pack it. Sure, you could do that for him, but who will do that
for him when he is 30 years old? We all grew wiser by suffering consequences while
you spoil you kid by running along behind him picking up after him and thinking
for him, you are really being very cruel to the woman he marries. She will soon
learn that she does not have home to keep..... she is managing a day care center
for a spoiled brat.
your kid does mess up, talk about it with him, and make sure he figures out what
he needs to do in the future. I said, make sure HE figures it out. Do not tell
him how to survive. The world is telling kids that the good life will come to
them, and that is just not true. Learning to think and take inventory of things
is a lost art with millennials. Don't let it happen to your kid.
do not escort your kid to apply for college. Counsel him, help him decide what
major he might want by talking through his dreams. But, do not grab Johnny by
his warm little hand and lead him through the process up and down the halls of
the college. If he cannot figure it out once he gets there, you have failed to
raise a responsible kid.
There is NO Substitute for Discipline Enforced by Punishment
ago, if you were a bully or a jerk, someone challenged you to meet them after
school on the playground. Then, they pounded the begeebers out of you, and you
resolved not to be a jerk or bully anymore. While we do not encourage violence,
the other side of modern life is that bullies and jerks are not called out. They
go on to grow up and become bullying adults and adult jerks. They have the mindset
that the world must just live with their cruelty or get off the world. Millennials
are very infected with this form of arrogance.
a parent, if you do not PUNISH the cruelty, bullying, and jerkedness (how's that
for a new word?) out of your son or daughter, you will find them one day holed
up somewhere alone living like an animal because they have no friends. The world
WILL throw them away in disgust. The older generation will not hire them, and
the upcoming generation will hate them. Either punish OUT cruelty, or God will
punish YOU for being a crass rebel.
discipline and punishment from your kid on the theory that he will be discouraged
and be a failure is upside down logic. The fact is, your kid will develop self-discipline
ONLY after many encounters with standards of conduct you enforce over his early
years. If your kid is allowed to drift on and on developing nothing but self-love
for himself, and lust for his own appetites, he will be living with you until
he is 35 years old. He will not have a clue what is right and what is wrong in
living in the real world. Get a health care plan that pays for psychiatrists if
this is your plan.
you do discipline your child, make sure to review all the alternative choices
he could have made which would not have resulted in bad consequences. Then, when
you kid does make right choices, thank them for going with the plan of life that
is the high standard.
22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not
depart from it.

in the above verse means "early". Solomon is suggesting you start punishing
bad behavior at an early age. I have no tolerance for the teaching of Mike Pearl
who suggests you spank babies. But, Solomon is warning you not to imagine that
discipline, including spanking, should be replaced by gullible tolerance of bad
Success Comes to Those who take no Shortcuts to be Comfortable
your son is fishing with you, and you don't throw back a fish that is under the
legal length limit, he will be just like you, only he may take your bad example
to the extreme, and one day you will be paying his bail.
you tell your kid to clean up his room, and he does a lousy job, do you finish
cleaning it up for him? If so, you are raising a self-possessed millennial who
will one day demand that his wife clean up after him.
you are teaching your kid to do is give up when living an orderly life is needed
years from now. He will not believe he can be fired for doing shoddy work in the
market place because you let him live shoddy while growing up. Also, a real man
does not dress like a fugitive from a baboon convention, and a godly man does
not cover himself with tattoos, not even tattoos with a Christian message. If
you cannot be bothered to raise your son to believe in order and observe standards
of social behavior, be ready to hear about all the jobs he loses one day because
he is basically a grungy slob.
to say, if you never clean up the garage or your desk, or if Mom lets the kitchen
turn into a trash hole, Johnny will get the message..... sloppy is OK. I learned
a proverb when I was a kid living in Oklahoma. "You never will see a farmer
plowing a field with half an donkey." Thus, "Johnny, that is a half
_______ way to clean up your room. Go finish it NOW."
we are talking about short cuts, let's discuss language. DO NOT let your kids
talk, write, or text in abbreviations. Absolutely forbid emojis. The English language
is being reduced to abbreviations and faces that many people do not understand.
It is rude to talk and write in cryptic coded language, and young people are becoming
helpless to make complete sentences. I am reminded of the Valley Girl era when
girls in California talked in truncated words and sentences. These girls became
arrogant and frequently mocked at anyone who could not understand them. Culturally,
this language of slop and slur is known to result in meaningless grunts and groans
down the road.
Values are Learned by being Demanded and Rewarded
are considering buying a second car, and you are weighing buying a new car against

buy for cash at CarMax. Please include the whole process of thinking and calculation
with your kids. They will learn the value of not being in debt.
is just one of the values of life. Every time you have any decision about the
way ahead, the more you include your kids in the discussion, the more they learn
and own the tools to make the same choices in ten years. This, of course, depends
on whether you are mature parents making rational decisions.
your kids come to a decision that they find tough, ask them to recall some decision
making in the past in which you included them. Encourage them to do the critical
thinking, Googling, and research and make a rational, not emotional, decision.
Millennials are full of passion. This can sometimes make their life rewarding,
but if they deal with every issue of life with passion instead of reason and skepticism,
they will end up back on their old bedroom with you soon.
Success comes to Those who Grab what is Available Next
kids sit on their butts and wait for the dream job to materialize. They have been
taught to be very demanding of life until they get what they believe they are
worth. They also believe that the perfect spouse is the one who pampers them with
worship. Divorce comes to millennials when they realize their spouse is not treating
them like a god or goddess. If you do not want these things to happen when your
kids become adults, you will have to teach them that destiny is often made up
of the next thing. It may not be what they want, and it may not pay what they
imagine they are worth, but they must learn to grab the moment and make the best
a young person takes a low paying job frying hamburgers, and if he decides to
be the best hamburger cook in his location, good things have a way of happening.
Either his boss will offer to put him into management training, or some stranger
will notice his zeal and offer him a job more like his dream job. I have heard
so many stories like this, and the young person went on to have a fulfilled life.
young married couple joined a mission to be missionaries to Jews in Paris, France.
They needed to do language study, and their financial support was still a bit
low. So, instead of moving to Paris to study French, they decided to go to Montreal,
Canada to learn French. When they got to Montreal they found that the city was
highly populated by French speaking Jews. They soon were given a zeal by God to
reach these Jews in Montreal. They ended up staying in that city and being missionaries
there. If they had not set their vision to be missionaries to Jews in France they
would never have ended up in Montreal. This is often how life works. We push on
a door, and it opens, and it leads to what God actually wants us to do.

The health of your kids mind depends on how they deal with boredom.
we were kids, we had spells of boredom, and our parents taught us to find ways
to distract ourselves with some substitute for boredom. Millennials have been
permitted by sloppy parenting to grab an iPad and dive into cyberspace. In the
world of the web they watch videos and play games, and their minds are not challenged
or fed healthy concepts.
results in young adults walking about staring down and bumping into lamp posts.
They don't see any of the people around them. They walk into restaurants or waiting
areas, and they see nothing going on nearby. This is freak behavior..... there
is nothing normal about these young adults. They are freaks to balanced and alert
people. And, the world still does not know what to do with a person who stares
at an iPad while a conversation is going on. Frankly, I want to scream at them.
I consider such people to be the most rude freaks in modern society.
I had to sit on a bus or ferry traveling in Africa as a kid, I would get bored.
But soon, I would start looking at all the people around me, and people are interesting.
I would try to figure out what their life was like from what I saw. I carried
a paper back story of prisoner of war camp escapes, or I read about trappers in
the Canadian north woods. The trick was to give the imagination some fuel to start
up and roar along. iPads have no story line. The user jumps here and there sampling
all sorts of stimulation, but the imagination is not feeding on the results. The
mind is not being fed.
parents had prepared me for later childhood and college days by encouraging me
to have projects of my own I was working on. I had a short-wave radio which I
built myself, and I spent many hours trying to find stations far away. Because
of that, I became an avid listener to world news, and to this day I benefit from
being a world watcher. Kids today have no idea what is going on in the world.
They are not encouraged to want to know because their parents don't care.
made rocket fuel from chemicals in the school lab. I rolled cigars made of canna
lily leaves. I trapped rabbits. I chased weasels. I greased the train tracks above
the school with butter to watch the wheels spin and the engineer get out and wipe
the wheels down. I made home brew from pineapple. I hiked in the forests around
the school and learned bushcraft. I drank tea with old African men who told strange
tales from long ago. I visited African labor union offices and talked about America
until they gave me a bottle of pop and insisted I come back again. All of these,
some naughty and some nice, are priceless memories in my older years. What memories
are you and your kids making for fifty years from now? Do you even remember what
you saw on the iPad four hours ago?
are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and
wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” — Charles William
to turn boredom into productive activity is a mental discipline which, in adult
life, will make your kid an interesting person to have around. He will have had
experiences that give him the ability to carry on his end of almost any conversation.
THAT can get a young adult hired. Bright successful managers like to hire interesting
people to be around them. I find millennials very boring people. They have nothing
in them but dead end thoughts about games and Internet rubbish.
you want to change this, parents, you may have to reform your own life. Are YOU
guilty of diving into cyberspace whenever you are bored? If so, you will have
no way to help your kids. You will raise a second generation twice as dull and
boring to be around as you are. Find something to do beside iPad diving. Start
reading books. You can now buy used books online at very low prices at BOOK
FINDER. You will have to research topics and look for book titles to enter
in the search box or on Google. Do not download ebooks. Buy the used books so
you will carry the book along to read when bored. Later, you will have the book
on your shelf to return to years later like an old friend. If all this sounds
weird and old fashioned to you, this should cause you to do a bit of a panic.
You are NOT a reading person, and you are dull. No wonder no one can start a conversation
with your kids.
if your kids learn to read real books, they will be able to push their way through
all sorts of barriers in adult life. Many jobs present an area of knowledge black
out. By this I mean that your kid will have to catch up fast in areas where he
did not get educated, or where he simply did not pay attention in class. The possibility
of getting a job may depend on his ability to read and digest critical information
in a hurry. The skill to read and learn in a hurry must be developed NOW, not
later. Reading is a skill that must be developed over time.
Do not push your kids to go to college
your kid really wants to go to college, that is fine. Much good can come from
a real college education. But, please, make sure they do not go to some prestige
college where they will be turned into politically correct snobs. These people,
once turned loose on society, make everyone around them miserable, and they end
their lives holed up in their emotions and blubbering about social justice. Social
justice is neither sociable, nor is it just. It is a war by intellectual nags
against free thinking rational people.
a college education will leave your kid anywhere from $80,000 to $200,000 in debt,
and he will not pay that debt off until he is 75 years old. I speak of things
I know are happening NOW. It is a cruel thing to push a kid into college when
he has virtually no idea what he wants to be in life. Also, if your kid does decide
to go to college, help him decide on a career objective, and match his curriculum
major to his career choice. That means, no majors in philosophy, English, History,
and philosophy. Eighty percent of millennials change majors in college at least
three times. This is because no one helped them identify a target career.
your kid. Find his talents, and test them with experiences and adventures to see
if he shines in some particular way. Then, once you think you have identified
one of two areas of special ability, try to figure out a way he can prepare for
a vocation that will fulfill his first love in life. A kid who is a woodsman and
loves to tramp around in wild country should not get a degree in political science.
He will be miserable for the rest of his life trying to be something he hates.
There are trade schools and apprentice opportunities for many vocations that cost
a fraction of a college degree, and the end result is the person doing what they
final point is possibly the most urgent one of all. Millions of kids are pushed
on into college, and they are now sitting at Dad and Mom's house drifting as they
wait for the promised job to take them to the promised land. And, it is not there.
The following video is so important that I embedded it so you have no excuse for
you know what your kids' dreams are?
Teach your Sons to be Manly, and Teach Your Daughters to be Feminine
public schools, along with the media and Hollywood, are teaching that boys are
toxic males and need to be delivered of this social deformity by social conditioning.
There is even an extreme view of this found in public schools and universities,
that is, that boys and men need to be suppressed and punished for being men. This
is promoted by perverted butches in power positions. This is accomplished by much
nagging by mostly females who have sold their souls to the Postmodern feminazi
Socialist propaganda machine. If YOU and your friends do not attack this viciously,
it will over power our culture, and we will become a nagged and nannied nation
of mental midget mealy mouthed men. Your children will give in to the message,
and you will one day weep as you see them blubbering in the corner while whining
for more stuff and more pampering.
you accept this propaganda and try to redesign your kids according to the Postmodern
myth, that men are deadly and need restraining, you will have freaks for children.
God created men and woman to fulfill distinct and separate roles. The two become
one flesh in marriage, and the differences between men and women are essential
for a healthy marriage and home.
may have been infected with this social virus yourself, but the Bible teaches
that men are to lead in the home, and ladies are to keep the home and submit to
their own husbands. Men are also told by the Apostle Paul to be willing to die
for their wives the way Christ died for the Church. If you do not like this biblical
model, then throw your children to the devil, and click out of this page now.
I have no more pearls to cast to dumb swine.
is a sense in which you must learn to be the odd one out. As you teach your sons
to be masculine, the social order now forming will declare you to be the enemy.
As you teach your daughters to be feminine, the same enemy will attack you for
this. You need to understand that you are at war with the ongoing social order
around your family.
you see or hear the propaganda that calls for sissy men and mannish women, mock
it in front of your children. Teach them how to determine when they are dealing
with agents for the Liberal Mafia who are trying to coax them toward the deformity
of their minds.
your son to be manly and a gentleman in public, and when he gets flack for it,
encourage him to laugh at the offenders and walk off. Teach your daughter to behave
in a feminine way, and if it bothers anyone, tell her to accuse the attacker of
being racist or a stalker. Make sure your son gets clear instruction in how to
identify a sodomite or transsexual, and how to fend them off violently. Teach
him that physical attack is noble when defending himself and others. Teach your
daughter methods of self-defense against attacks, whether verbal or physical.
Arm your kids as soon as they are old enough to legally carry a weapon.
you produce sons who are manly, and daughters who are feminine, you will one day
have real joy at their weddings. If you let the present social order teach them
the Satanic male and female pornography of interaction with people, you will be
wretched pathetic losers as you some day plead with the local church, on prayer
meeting night, to pray that God will somehow rescue your kids from a pathological
mind set. God wants you to make them godly men and women NOW.
IS THE MESSAGE TO SAVED AND UNSAVED MILLENNIALS
video is the one above in point 16 for parents.
education in the world is being reformed according to Sir Ken Robinson in the
video. So, how about starting a reformation in your own home and reform the process
of indoctrination of your own children. This must be done by throwing away the
old rubbish system and replacing it with rational social and educational teaching.
The point is not to replace traditional education with play time. The idea is
to add into the curriculum topics which explore the students natural inclinations
and talents. If a kid shows signs of making music, make time for piano lessons.
If a girl seems to excel at art, find an art teacher to tutor her.
your kids, and the kids in your church, that a true Bible believer is constantly
changing and becoming more and more like Jesus. Hold this standard up high as
the only standard for a Christian. The Bible makes it very clear that change is
normal, but this change is always to higher dna better things.
Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old
things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
had a man in a church I pastored in California who had confessed faith in Jesus
Christ as his Savior and Lord. We will call him Al. He had then gone into drugs
and alcohol until he was emotionally and morally at the bottom. Someone convinced
him to get shock treatment, which is a great evil and is no longer used. He was
very badly affected by the shock treatment, and Al had a hard time to find his
way back to normal. The Lord allowed me to help him along. Al still had sudden
powerful urges to go drink, and this was not social. He drank in a hurry in a
bar and rushed home. I told him that when he got the urge to drink to call me,
and we would go shoot pool at the local KOA campground. There was no booze in
Al called one Saturday night, I told him to come and pick me up to go to the KOA.
I jumped into his pickup, and I opened the glove compartment. There were CDs of
Motley Crue, AC-DC, Willy
Nelson, and several other hard rock groups. I said nothing and closed the glove
compartment. The next time he picked me up I punched the glove compartment button,
and Al said, "I got rid of all of them except Willy Nelson. Do I have to
give up Willy Nelson?" I laughed and said, "That certainly is great
next time I got into the pick up truck, Al said, "Don't worry about the music.
I got rid of Willy Nelson." I laughed and told him I was proud of his zeal.
is change. If you see no change in those people who walk the aisle of your church,
you are not preaching the whole Bible to them. They think a short walk, a jabbery
prayer, and they are on their way to Heaven. Meanwhile, they go right on living
the same old life. Those people are not born again, and they are on the way to
Hell. What are YOU going to do about it, preacher?
is a letter from someone who was arrested and made new by our precious Savior:
not sure if this e-mail address is valid, active, or checked any longer. However,
given the small chance anyone reads this, I would like to share the following
facts: 5 years ago: I was a wholehearted lover of the secular world. (Satan,
actually.) 4 years ago: I used drugs for the first time. 3 years ago:
I tried to commit suicide. 2 years ago: I failed out of college. (November,
2004: By the grace of God I was saved through faith in Christ Jesus.) 1 year
ago: Everything I learned about Christian life was from CCM radio. I suppose that
should make me very scared. Also, I used "bibles" ranging from the NIV to "The

you for your time.
you think about the translation controversy, can you see in this letter the pattern
of what Paul Washer was trying to get those young people to catch on to? If there
is no change in YOUR life, preacher, and the life of your people, you are all
on your way to Hell.
preached a sermon on finances, debt, and how we need to learn to have enough,
rather than living by the urge of the culture to get more stuff. To illustrate
the way Americans have wretched priorities, I listed the statistics for missions
giving in the USA compared to money spent on greeting cards, dog food, and dog
operations. My point was to help the folks see that we need to think about our
evening one of the men came up to me and said, "Did you hear that Fred shot
his dog?" He went on to say that Fred decided that all the money he spent
on dog food should be given to missions. At first I was taken back. I had not
set out to see people kill their dogs. But then, I realized that God was at work.
What Fred did not know was that I had become worried about him spending a lot
more time playing with his dog than with his young son. And, God did not like
it either, so the Holy Spirit took care of a much more serious issue than the
cost of dog food because Fred took the Word of God literally.
I have many stories like the three above. These stories of Christians changing
their priorities to come in line with the Holy Spirit and the Word are every bit
as precious as the memories of people who confessed faith in Jesus Christ. When
I see a Christian making serious changes in his life that come from the literal
use of the Word of God, I KNOW that person is really born again.

will all of this work itself out with millennials?
people are totally self-centered. They will have a much harder time to be happy
with the Word of God as their guide of life. Many teachings in the Bible will
grate on them, and they will go off looking for an amusement centered church,
usually a mega church.
giving them the Gospel will be a challenge. They will expect God to save them
because they are worthy. Telling a millennial he is a sinner and lost and on his
way to Hell will make him angry. He is the center of the universe, and God is
just lucky the millennial is willing for God to save him.
highly recommend that you exalt Jesus Christ to all millennials. Show how Jesus
made himself poor, how he ran a carpenter's shop, how he chose common men to be
around him, and how he accepted persecution and death to save others. This is
why the Gospel, presented in this journal at the link above, leads the seeker
to read the whole of the Gospel of John and decide if he believes everything he
understands about Jesus. It is not possible to be born again and reject the virgin
birth or that Jesus was the creator in Genesis 1-3.
Washer emphasized the fact that Jesus gives his law to his true friends and saints.
If your church members know no law other than your "Baptist standards,"
they are damned to Hell. The law of Christ..... do YOU even know what it is? Do
you teach it?
believeism allows people to just walk into a mega church, sip a Starbucks, do
a little shouting, and feel like they "got saved." Walking the aisle
of the average Baptist church is not much different. There is very little the
alleged convert really knows about Jesus Christ, and he may never learn much as
long as his pastor keeps assuring him he is saved.
all these lost sheep, sir..... when is the last time your heart was broken and
you were moved to tears as you looked at church members who were not like Jesus
and did not seem to care?
is a movement in Christendom which borders on heresy. This is the teaching that
repentance is not needed for salvation. The claim is made that repentance is works.
That is a LIE. By that logic, it could also be said that faith in Christ is based
on mental effort to understand the Gospel, therefore, since thinking is works,
faith is works and is wicked. This would leave you where the Primitive Baptists
are, in that, they say that salvation is a rush that comes on you suddenly, and
you then know that God saved you. This all comes in the terror of the will of
man and hyper-Calvinism.
you are not preaching that a born again person will repent, you are a heretic.
I don't care if you put the repentance before, during, or after confession of
faith in Christ, there WILL be repentance. The Jews in the Upper Room were told
to repent to enter into Christ's salvation for them.
2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto
Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name
of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the
is not remitted without repentance, and salvation is not received by people who
refuse to repent.
you have a Savior, pastor, who forgives sin, both yours and the sins of the people
sitting in front of you every Sunday morning? If you claim you do, why have you
not preached that you and your believing friends need to hate their sin and leave
it? And, if you will not teach repentance to millennials, they will go right on
believing they are the center of the universe and God is just lucky they approve
has been my observation that the reason preachers do not preach repentance is
because they have secret sins that haunt them. They are hustling a lady other
than their wife, or they are addicted to porn. "And many other such things
OF YOUR MILLENNIAL EMPLOYEES You are not imagining it..... millennials
are dumb as snot. You need to understand that millennials will not have a mental
reservoir of knowledge, that which working people refer to intuitively for problem
solving, to process situations they confront. They are mentally crippled. "I
went to the levee, but the levee was dry. That will be the day that I die....."
need to be confronted with their folly. The problem is, they have no guilt about
playing their way through life. They played and blew pot in school instead of
studying, and recently a research was done showing that millennials added very
little to their knowledge base in university. So, when you try to help them understand
their gross handicap please show some diplomacy.
with them the road they traveled, from Sesame Street to Mr. Rogers to Kindergarten
to High School to University. Remind them that they were often rewarded for doing
minimum effort for such things as enthusiasm and "the most improved."
They were told they would conquer the world and be anything they want to be. Help
them by telling stories of people you know who did not conquer the world but who
now live a productive life and are happy.
Bert Woodruff, my union helper at Brown Paper Company who cut the paper samples
I distributed. He had been a paper cutting machine operator for 43 years before
I got there, and all that time was spent at Brown Paper Company. Bert was a happy
man, he chain smoked two pipes, and he helped me navigate the union rules so well
that I was the envy of management for my ability to get union men to do me favors.
Bert retired the year after I left Brown Paper Company, and he died within nine
months. Bert was one of the happiest workers I ever knew. The curious thing was,
Bert was still a happy man after 43 years on the same job.
a millennial's grandparents remember the Great Depression, encourage him to ask
his grandparents about how they survived. Suggest books to read on the Great Depression.
My Dad had to drop out of ninth grade to go to work to make house payments for
his invalided mother who was a widow. There were a few charities during the Great
Depression, but no one made house payments for people. My Dad went to work at
age 18 on the WPA working on the Little Tujunga Dam above Los Angeles. His first
job there was working on the Mexican Drag Line, that is, leveling bed rock with
a pick and hammer. That crew was all Hispanics. Dad said it was horrible work,
and he was brutally sore from the work, but he stayed on that work crew, and they
kept the house. This is the sort of history your millennial employee was protected
from by the America hating school system.
millennial you hire has a big hole of missing information
in his mind and soul. His
life has been one long day care center with lots of games and thrills in technology.
He has no world view of any significance. He is terrified that he might become
politically incorrect. And, he does not have a clue that something is missing.
The more you can do to expose the millennial employee to a larger vigorous life,
the better worker he will become. And, you may win a great friend in the end.
you have to finally fire a Millennial because they will not stop demanding to
be entitled, you might help them learn from the experience by telling them that
if they keep up the pattern of entitlement with future employers, they will experience
being fired over and over. Their resume will look terrible, and they will find
it harder and harder to find good jobs. Just do not have any witnesses present
when you talk to them. They might use such a talk as an excuse to go for litigation.
Hearing the truth, to many millennials, is considered a hate crime.
need an unwritten understanding with your Human Resources that millennials will
not be pampered out of fear that they may try to make trouble for your company.
Pampering millennials will encourage them to demand more and more preferential
treatment, and the word will get out that camping in HR will keep them from being
you come drifting into your office at 10:00, do not be surprised if your millennials
do the same. They have been told all their life that they are special, and you
are showing that you are special because you are the owner of the business. That
is true, and many of your older employees understand and accept you with your
privileges. The millennial sees in you an example of what he intends to be, and
he will arrive late and leave early with no guilt at all. After all, you are a
success, and you take privileges.
there is a crisis, do you lie to cover up faults? Do you let people lie about
why they arrived for work late? Lying is endemic in the American culture. If you
accept lying as SOP for covering up faults and failures your millennials will
do so even worse than any other employees. Millennials have been lied to all their
lives. They believe they are special because their parents and teachers told them
they were the center of the universe. Some millennials have figured out that they
were lied to, and now they do not believe anyone. Your lying culture will be repulsive
to them. So, why should they tell you the truth?
need to build a culture of truth telling top to bottom in your company. Make a
stated policy that your people do not have to respond to every question if they
don't care to. Make it clear that declining to respond will not be held against
them. You like this in the court room. Why not in your company affairs? If you
want integrity in your employees, you will have to start rewarding your people
for telling the truth and not hiding failures.
your Human Resources officer to keep all issues with employees 100% confidential.
If your HR person chatters to you and others in leadership about employees who
are troubled, fire the HR person. If HR people gossip around the company about
employee's problems, fire them. Train your HR people to solve problems without
making them company wide gossip, especially with millennials. These people need
a chance to make a fresh start in life, and even YOU do not need to know every
time they blunder.
to hire a man into HR. I know this sounds insane because HR staff in 90% of companies
are women. Women in HR assume men are all rapists and misogynists. These women,
when empowered in HR, will try to put men into slavery to themselves and other
women in the company. Your millennial men will accept this role at once because
of all the PC propaganda they received growing up. This will make useless cur
dogs of you millennial men.
option with HR would be to simply eliminate it completely, that is, if you are
not required by law to have it. Another option would be two HR people, a man to
deal with men's issues, and a woman to deal with women's problems. If you do the
last option, do NOT make one of the two the boss of the other. They should both
answer upline. The issue here is to take the "me too" terror out of
men having to open up their soul to a woman who might decide to accuse them of
sexual offenses and get them fired. This WILL happen more and more in the coming
am stressing HR heavily because millennials tend to whine, and a woman in HR will
respond like a woman- emotionally. She will either turn on the millennial in frustration,
or she will weep with them. What millennials need is straight talk and help to
reset their mental and emotional weakness into problem solving skills.
believe in their soul that sex is a recreational activity. Both men and woman
will seek sexual distraction from one another in the millennial age range. You
may not want to talk about this officially, but do take a policy of firing any
two people who become sexually distracted with one another. This includes all
sexual preferenced relationships. When two people, in the same company, become
sexually involved, they will do one another favors which hurt the company, and
they will become a burden on the patience of fellow employees. It goes without
saying that YOU must lead in this. If you have developed a sexual affair with
an employee, you might as well declare bankruptcy right now and get it over with.
FROM HOME SCHOOLERS
is a sort of noble calling in salvaging millennials, but some will not respond
to your most kind and considered help. If they reject reason and will not make
any positive changes, FIRE THEM. The propaganda, of the authors who write about
millennials, tells us that we have to be patient and put up with some objectionable
behavior in millennials. Bah. You have a company to keep profitable, and good
intentions will not help your bottom line if you don't get an ROI for your zeal
to rescue a millennial.
the incorrigible millennials, and start shopping for home schoolers. Many parents
home school their kids for the main reason that they do not want their kids to
become millennials. These kids learn to be self-starters and self-disciplined.
They do not expect the world to worship them and pamper them.
Gates was in North Carolina at some tech gathering. While there, he met a teen
ager who was being home schooled, and the kid was into technology big time. Bill
checked out his skills and invited himself to visit his home. When he saw the
things the kid was doing, he told the parents he wanted to take their son straight
to Microsoft in Redmond and finish his education for him. The parents, and the
kid, decided they wanted him to finish high school with their ongoing curriculum.
Bill Gates agreed, but he told them to send the kid straight to Microsoft as soon
as he graduated. Bill bluntly told them the kid should not waste any of his life
on college or university. As much of a One Worlder and Liberal as Bill Gates is,
he saw no value in college for a gifted home schooler.
will have to do some training if you hire home schoolers, but they will not diddle
away the hours playing games and gawking at porn. They will learn fast, and they
will grow your company.
I am telling you, as an employer, is that millennials will be a drag on you personally.
They will give you all sorts of grief with their lust to be pampered, and if you
do pamper them, it will eventually affect your ROI directly. They are, for all
intents and purposes, a lost generation. The ones who catch on to reality will
show up one day, and you may want to hire them. But, unless you are a philanthropist,
you must not feel guilt for shucking off dead beats of any generation.
you will hear from the alleged experts that we will be forced to deal with the
foibles and folly of millennials because they will one day rule our world. Think
about the 1960s and the hippies. The only hippies you see in significant positions
today are the ones who stayed to pray and got religion. I mean that they got tired
of eating rye crisp and blowing pot, and they decided to join the capitalist system
and have a life. The same will be true of the millennials. Only the ones who have
a life changing epiphany will rise into significance, and you should watch for
them. The rest will end up living under bridges and holding cardboard signs at
intersections. Start planning on recruiting from the next generation.
you have decided to deal with the phony person you were made into by the system,
your parents, and even your pastor, you may now be ready to walk forward and be
the person God wants you to be. But, you will have memories. Some of those memories
are priceless, even while most of them are obnoxious. Do not destroy the good
memories. Please think long and hard about this. Even some of those people who
lied and told you that you were the center of the universe actually loved you.
They thought, wrongly, that they were helping you. Do not hate them. Do not abandon
them all, especially your parents.
may need to explain something to these people from the past. Do not blame. Blame
is a cheap substitute for taking responsibility for your life. Simply tell your
parents and friends you are no longer the person they made you into. Let them
understand that the message from the past is now revolting to you. You need to
lovingly let them know that you do not want to hear the lies anymore. Tell them
that Jesus Christ is now the one they should exalt when you are around, not you.
the fun things you recall, the trips to exciting places, and the dreams you had.....
they still may come true. But, make sure your mind no longer expects those dreams
to come true because you deserve them. As you enter the era of your life where
hard work and responsible action leads the way, see if one of those dreams turns
up after all. Did you dream of going to Africa and helping little kids get their
eyesight back? Did you dream of walking the John Muir trail in California, or
through the Appalachian Mountains? God may one day let you have one of those dreams
if you take charge of your life under his plan for you.
forget, a man dies when he stops dreaming. I dream of taking a Harley Davidson
through the Smoky Mountains one day. Don't tell me I am too old and poor to do
that. I might believe you, and if I do, the dream ends, and I will be that much
closer to die.
only thing I caution you about is this..... stop dreaming of wealth and getting
a big pile of things. Dream of doing something to help others, or dream of exploring
some corner of God's world where there are still hills no man has stood on. Dream
of doing, not getting stuff and ruling the world.
6:24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: 25 The LORD make his face shine upon
thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon

of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
THERE is something we can all agree on.
are getting sensitive about their reputation. If you are one of them I am calling
your bluff. If you know that you and most of your friends are annoying to older
and younger people, CHANGE. It is the height of rudeness for you to ask all the
rest of the world to come and coddle you and pamper you while you dance with Mephistopheles.
We don't like the music, and we don't know the dance.
you are largely dead weight on society as you demand to be taken seriously. You
claim you will change our world, and all you have managed to give us is Political
Correctness and Antifa. You want us to help you find Nirvana, and you don't even
know which restroom to use If you want to be taken seriously you will have to
suck it in, and you will have to join the real world of a hard work ethics and
productivity. The games are over. The party is over. We all went home when you
came bounding down the steps of the university ready to tell all of us why we
are such failures. We like our world of hard work and God fearing ethics.
you are willing to join the world of performance and zeal for hard work, welcome.
We need your skills and your willingness to make the system work. But, if you
want to keep whining, buzz off. We don't need you that badly.

MILLENNIAL..... DO YOU REALLY WANT TO LIVE ALONE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE? Men
are terrified of being involved with women because so many of you feminists live
for the day you can accuse a man of raping or sexually offending you. If that
is not you, why have you not fled from the feminist PC fake world? You cannot
have a husband and children and keep your man in terror of you. Stop being so
stuck on stupid.
PETERSON'S MOST SHOCKING MESSAGE The bad world will keep being bad. Will
you become a victim, or will you rise above it. It is your choice. To say you
have no will in the outcome is wretched theology. In any case, you do have the
will to rise up against chaos, or we would not read.....
2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being
in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made
himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made
in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled
himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore
God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and
things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
anyone confess that Jesus Christ is Lord because of your choices in how to use
the life God gave you?

have your dream, but that will only happen if you learn to be content along the
way to your dream. God does not visit the arrogant and self-centered person with
