A discussion of the Millennial Malaise and how to Escape It


Definition of Millennial- A person reaching adulthood in the early 21st Century.

Sorry to drop the word "Malaise" on you in the subtitle. It sounds like something that goes with tomato and lettuce, right?

A malaise is a state of confusion caused by nothing much happening. It is akin to "status quo" but with confusion added in.

This 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.

The 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.




Where did the doctrine of self-love come from?


Genesis 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.

Beware 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.

In 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.

If 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.


The heresy of self-love

The Lie

"You cannot learn to love others until you learn to love yourself."- Robert Schuler

The 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.

1 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.



The Bible Speaks to Man

2 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.

These 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?

The 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.

"I 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.

This 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.

The 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.....

Romans 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.

When 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.

If 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.

When 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....."

Here 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.


This 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.

If 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.



Proverbs 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.

Life 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.

1 Timothy 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.

When 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.

I 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.

Have 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.


The parable of the man with his barn

Luke 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.

If 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.

The key word to live a happy fulfilled life is "Enough." Solomon understood this when he prayed:

Proverbs 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.

What 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.

If 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.



2 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.

The 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.

The 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.

I 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.

This 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).

When 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.

Try 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.

If 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.

What follows is a discussion of the many lies and who they come from in our modern society and culture.

Some 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."


Try 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.


Lie from the Christian community


The 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.

Joel 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.


The lies of Hollywood and Nashville


The 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.

The 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.

The 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.



The 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.

The "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 real world.

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.

And, 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.



This 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.


Video of Jack Ma and failure

There 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.

Please stop the video frequently so you don't miss the last line in each frame.


Key line:

"I 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.

Jack 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 your family.

A 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.

He 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.

You 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?

If 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.

This 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.


I 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.





This 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 on.

If you think this is unfair, tell me, is it fair to the rest of the population to have to carry YOU along as you contribute nothing.




Studies 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:

1. Where were you when you were ten?

2. 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.

3. What is it about these people that grabs your memories, good and bad?

4. Can you recall the messages they were giving you in teaching, discipline, social activity, and objectionable experiences?

5. 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?

6. What did you want to be when you were ten?

7. Who were your heroes? What programs on TV did you never fail to watch?

8. What do you still have from age ten that gives you either good or bad feelings?

Now, 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.

Finally, 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.

The 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.

For 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.

So, 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.

The 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.



Stop 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.

If you 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.

Absolutely 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.



When 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!

Research 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.

Instead, 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.

A 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.

The point is, you can think yourself into failure, and you can meditate yourself into a dead end.

The 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 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?



When 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.

When 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.

Do 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.

You will pay a price to do the right thing, and you will pay a price to do the wrong thing.

If 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.

If 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.

WHICH PRICE DO YOU WANT TO PAY? Jorden Peterson lecture- Exceptional.

It 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,"



I am not talking about taking health herbs. I am talking about using the natural world you live in for therapy.

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

If 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.



You 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.

If 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.

If 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.

Stop 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.

Dreaming 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.

Here is the advice of John Pozniak:

"Will 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."

As 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.

Frankly, 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.

If 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.

Pick 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 coach you.

Finally, 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.


HERE IS AN AREA WHERE YOU MAY FIND A NICHE. Find a local restaurant that is popular with your friends, and see if you can convince the owner to let you do delivery service for him.


The catch is, you cannot be using weed and get a trucking license, nor will anyone hire you.

HERE 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.



Get 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.

A 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 more traffic.

Also, 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.

Finally, 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)

You 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 souls.



Nothing 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.




You are not appointed to conquer the world

The 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.

YOU WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD. Get used to that fact.

Regarding the poor, Jesus tells you what will happen to your best intentions:

Mark 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.

If 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.

Also, 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.

Furthermore; 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:

1. 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.

2. 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.

So, 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.


Good things will not come to you

The 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.

Psalms 34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Teddy 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.

Roosevelt 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 stick" mentality.

After 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.

Why 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."

Ecclesiastes 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.

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 arrogance.


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.

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.


You have been taught that the world owes you a good life

I owe you nothing. Deal with it.

Whine 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.

Does 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.

One 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.

This does not imply that there are exceptions. But, when there are exceptions it is because of one of two things:

1. The kid is mentally or physically handicapped and needs continuing help from his parents to survive.

2. 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.

So, 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.

I 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.

A 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 things.

While 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.

If 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.

My 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.

When 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.

Am 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.

If 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.

Whatever 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.

1 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 having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

You 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.


Young man, DO NOT let the world feminize you

Are 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.

Have 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.

There 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.


Lady, 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.



You are a freak as to your appetites for everything

This is because you are a child of marketing and propaganda. You sucked up the lies of Sesame Street, public school, and university, and now your appetites are underdeveloped and twisted.


You will learn that YOU are the object of very unethical marketing tricks. And, you went for it.



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.



President 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. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DETAILS




Mega churches are like the American Pygmy Shrew. Every day it eats three times its own weight. Without a constant intake of food this creature will die quickly. 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?

The Apostle Paul blasts this "I Am" message:
Romans 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.
Do you believe the Apostle Paul or Joel Osteen?



Your most urgent issue is to learn to talk intelligently, and stop taking communications short cuts. The world does not think your texting is cute. This man is nailing all of your issues as to employment.


The 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.

Is this you? Any innovation you do..... is it because you crave the attention, or do you actually believe in the company you work for? This may not be you in every detail, but you have the virus. Your only reason to work where you are is to either be CEO in three weeks or move on to some other more promising company.

Fix it, or you will become a transient, shuffling from company to company, and you will tell the world that no one appreciates you. It will never be your fault according to you.

What is the solution?

Answer: Thank God you have a job, make up your mind to like your boss, and decide you will be the best at what you do. Look for innovations that will make the work go smoother and add to the company Return On Investment. My oldest son worked 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.

My 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 be sure your name is in the code somewhere.


There are many other escape vocations, like fire look out tower watching and light house keeper. Hammer Google, and you should be able to find something.



You have been taught and nagged into submission by feminists who told you that all men are stalking women and want nothing but to put women into bondage to themselves and rape them as soon as possible. The "Me Too" trend is reinforcing this myth for you.

Your 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.

Go ahead and run with the jackboot bitches, and nod wisely as they trash other men. One day, they will trash YOU if you marry one of them.

And, to you a millennial young lady..... if your idea of a good man is a cur dog who will run to feminist rallies with you, and wash the dishes and do the laundry for you, you are the bitch mentioned above. If you want to go straight to a Type A man, instead of trying the cur dog first, go to the same church the fellow above attends, and find a manly man who treats you like a lady and runs with the men who are hunting and fishing. There is NO hope for you if you bring a feminazi mindset to the marriage altar.



I know, you crave all the techy stuff you can get your hands on, and the latest model is a must for your alleged needs. You are unemployed, or working part time, and you imagine all the toys your parents have are owed to you be the big wonderful world of commerce.

I have news for you. It ain't necessarily so, my friend. If you keep lusting for stuff and more stuff, a day will come when you are busted, and you will be moving back in with your parents. From childhood to the present no one has told you anything about personal finances, and it is late to learn now.


Remember, 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 for you.

You 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 collection.

I 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.

Pay 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.

On 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.


One 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.

BEWARE OF EASY MONEY Millennials are falling for online scams big time.



Here is former President Teddy Roosevelt on the strenuous life"

We 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.

A 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.

A 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 world.

I am talking to both men and women millennials. A real man, and a real lady, both intentionally put themselves into situations which test their determination and 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.



I 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 will be a testament to the fact that you are pushing yourself in the strenuous life.

Next, if you are a millennial who needs a dream, start saving your money, and buy yourself 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.

Finally, 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 their friends and family from criminals. It is a slimy wimp who refuses 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.

Read old books about the adventures of explorers and missionaries from the 1700s and 1800s. These can be found on The Wayback Machine or at Book Finder. I suggest you start with the book by Jim Corbett, Man-Eaters of Kumaon. Oxford University Press, Bombay 1944. Recent reprints are available used. Here is a movie that is based on Jim Corbett's life in India. This was a real man of both a tender heart and a fearless dedication to defend his Indian friends.

As you learn from Jim Corbett, "The second greatest happiness one can have is the sudden cessation of great fear." Who lives in fear that YOU could remove for them? I shall never forgive you if you just watch the video and not read at least one of the man's books. All his books are listed here.

There is no short cut to being a manly man. If you were allowed to become a couch potato by your parents, you have a serious task ahead of you. You now have to decide if you will repair the damage done to you. What will you do about it?

And, 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 women. When Samuel Baker explored the Sudan in 1861, he took his wife along, which 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.

Finally, plant a garden, even if you have to do it on the balcony of your apartment. A garden is great for peace of mind, but it also tells you that you actually can produce your own food if you have to.

The rules a real man lives by:

Don’t aim for ease. Aim for action and commitment to do unto others.

See 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.

Never 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.

Never quit. Make the company fire you. Start over, and make the thing work next time.

Never 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.

Patience. 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 and rage.

Trust 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.

Step 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 existence.


I 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.

What 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?


It is time to take inventory.

Who 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.

What 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.

So, 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?

Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth 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.

Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

If the above thoughts seem harsh and cruel in some way, that was not how I meant to come across. I have tried to say what I really believe you needed to hear. The outcome of telling people the truth is not always what we hoped for, but the chances of making a difference are best accomplished by telling the truth.


I would not compare you to a drunken loser or a Hells Angels gang member. The point is, did I tell you the truth, and can you deal with it in a mature fashion? I hope so.



You 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:

1. Kill the instinct to blame other people or circumstances

You 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?

And, 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.

Imagine 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.


2. It is OK to be guilty and admit it

Millennials 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.

I still remember one day, after I had been very naughty, Dad sitting on my bed and reading I John 1:9 to me.

1 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.

My 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 future.

Your 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.


3. You are the center of the universe lie

If 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.

A 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 setting?


In every one of these clips the parent is the most guilty brat. Once your kid realizes you will not punish bad behavior, you have lost your child to Satan. They will manage YOU, and you will go mad.

Do 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 die.

Proverbs 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;

When 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.


4. Fear is not the end of the world- Face it, and move on

Our ability to feel fear is absolutely essential to our survival.

James 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.

While 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.

I 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.

I 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.

Millennials 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.

When 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.

Another 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.

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.

Matthew 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.

If 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.


5. Kids are not in charge of the family

I 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."

Once a 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.

But, 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.

Your 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.

Learning 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.

In 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.

While 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.

What 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.

You have mastered raising your son when, one day, he does that nasty job without being asked to do it.

I 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 and children.

The 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 walked back.



6. No one is perfect- No one is the best

All the sports records get broken one day. A chess championship ends with a winner and a loser. There is no medal awarded in the Olympics for last place. Bet on a losing horse, and you lose your money.

You know these facts of life, but are you helping your kid deal with them realistically. 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.

There 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.

If 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.

The 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 been done.

Philippians 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.

Paul did not want to out perform other Christians. He wanted to be the best he could be in Christ Jesus.


7. Kids become productive adults by learning responsibility

So, 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.

I 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.

Also, 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.

The real 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 place.

My 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.

Remember, 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 old.


8. Pain happens, both emotional and physical

There 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 adult world.

Example: 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.

Your 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.

If 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.


9. Mom and Dad are not responsible for kid's emotions

Your 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.

Girls 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.

Be 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.

I 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.

In 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.


10. Preventing Their Kids From Making Mistakes


Only 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."

How 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 growing up.

When 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.

When 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.

Finally, 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.


11. There is NO Substitute for Discipline Enforced by Punishment

Long 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.

As 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.

Withholding 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.

When 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.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 13:24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

"Betimes" 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 behavior.


12. Success Comes to Those who take no Shortcuts to be Comfortable

If 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.

When 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.

What 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.

Needless 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."

While 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.



13. Values are Learned by being Demanded and Rewarded

You are considering buying a second car, and you are weighing buying a new car against a good used car that you can pay for outright and not add debt. You decide to 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.

That 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.

When 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.


14. Success comes to Those who Grab what is Available Next

Millennial 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 of it.

When 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.

A 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.

Teach your kids to get into motion and try something instead of demanding what they dream about.


15. The health of your kids mind depends on how they deal with boredom.

When 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.

This 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.

When 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.

My 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.

I 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?
“Books 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 Eliot

Learning 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.

If 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.

Finally, 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.



16. Do not push your kids to go to college

If 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.

Furthermore, 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.

Watch 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 love.

This 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 avoiding it.

Do you know what your kids' dreams are?


17. Teach your Sons to be Manly, and Teach Your Daughters to be Feminine

The 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.


If 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.

You 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.


There 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.

When 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.

Teach 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.

If 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.

IT IS A JUNGLE OUT THERE. Are your kids being prepared to survive in this world?





The video is the one above in point 16 for parents.

All 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.

Teach 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.

2 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.

I 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 the KOA.

When 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 progress."

The 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.

That 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?


Here is a letter from someone who was arrested and made new by our precious Savior:

Mr. Van Nattan,

I'm 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 Message."

But the Lord has continued to pursue me although I do not deserve it in the least. And, sir, I'd like you to know, that earlier this week, I discarded every translation save for the authorized KJV.

Blessed be the Lord Almighty. I pray this continues.

Thank you for your time.

Whatever 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.

I 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 priorities.

Sunday 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.

Pastor, 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.

Matthew 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

How will all of this work itself out with millennials?

These 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.

Even 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.

I 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.

Paul 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?

Easy 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.

So, 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?


There 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.

If 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.

Acts 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 Holy Ghost.

Sin is not remitted without repentance, and salvation is not received by people who refuse to repent.

Do 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 of him.

It 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 ye do....."

Wait for the third point. Millennials do not want to wait until they are thirty to take charge, like Jesus did.



You need to require all of your managers and executives to watch this.
Require it, and tell them you will discuss it at your next management meeting.


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....."



Millennials 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.

Review 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.

Like 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.

If 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.

Every 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.

If 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.

You 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 fired.



If 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.

When 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?

You 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.

Tell 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.

Try 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.

One 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 days.

I 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.

Millennials 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.



There 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.

Fire 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.

Bill 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.

You 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.

What 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.

Also, 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.



If 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.

You 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.

And, 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.

Never 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.

The 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.

Numbers 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 thee, and give thee peace.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Now, THERE is something we can all agree on.



Millennials 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.

Furthermore; 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.

If 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.

Proverbs 13:4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Proverbs 14:23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

Stop whining, and grab hold of life.

Please think about where YOU are going in the next culture. Where do you want to end up?


















If you are full of PC sensitivity, you will soon be left behind.

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.

The music is dumbed down on purpose because millennials are dumbed down. They also have to natural appetite anymore for melody and poetic lyrics.

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.....

Philippians 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.

Will anyone confess that Jesus Christ is Lord because of your choices in how to use the life God gave you?


God may allow you to one day 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 special things.
