Do you self-sabotage? By Linda Lange


Do you self-sabotage?

March 3, 2012

What exactly does it mean to self-sabotage? It means that we prevent good things from happening to us by our own actions, words, and deeds.

Why do we do this?

  • We prevent something good from happening, so that someone else won’t hurt us first.
  • Deep down inside we don’t feel like we deserve to be blessed
  • And if we are blessed, we wouldn’t know what to do with it and be in fear that it would be taken away anyway. So why set ourselves up for it in the first place, so we’d rather have nothing!

Wow… what a vicious cycle! Listening and responding to wrong thoughts is causing our problems. As you see, no one has done anything to us, we are doing this to ourselves! Jeremiah 5:25 says that we prevent good things from happening to us because of our sins and iniquities. So…

I am angry. Angry over the Benham brothers recent removal from the HGTV television show for expressing their beliefs in traditional marriage, angry over Miami Dolphins general manager expressing disappointment in one his player’s displeasure over two men kissing during the NFL draft’s celebration of the first open gay football player, angry at the constant labeling of any disapproval, displeasure, or even disgust with homosexuality as homophobic, hateful bigotry.

If you are involved in a gay relationship, or have a loved one that is, do not get upset with me. I am not against you. If you’ll listen long enough you will see that I am actually trying to help you.

The devil hates it when someone brings the truth out in the open. He likes to keep all light and truth hidden in the darkness. He hates it when someone speaks plainly and clearly about sin. But he loves to expose all that…

A few years ago I was engaged in a friendly spiritual dialogue with a former childhood friend on facebook. The conversation was spawned from a status I had just posted on my timeline. What I shared was a diagram of two photos, exposing in a dichotomy, the hypocrisy of liberal values. The photo on the left portrayed two homosexuals in festive, colorful attire kissing each other in what looked like a gay pride parade. Below the photo was the word “encouraged”. The photo on the right portrayed two little children sitting at their desk in school with hands folded in prayer. Below that photo was the word “unacceptable”. In other words, Liberalism encouraged homosexuality while deeming school prayer unacceptable.

My friend pointed out that the photo of the children was upsetting to him as he believed that no one should discourage children from praying, but the one of the homosexuals…

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons…” (1 Tim. 4:1).

“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Tim. 4:2-4).

A subversive effort by the leftist leaning liberals to infiltrate the Church and turn people away from the real gospel and true doctrine is gaining momentum in this hour. The purpose of this agenda is to sway the Church toward a radical political movement and the spread of socialism in our nation.

Here are the…

A professor gets a lesson on socialism

This is for all you educated people that think uneducated people are dumb. Let’s see how this works out for you and your family if this country keeps pushing for socialism.

“Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”..
There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.
The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime. In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked: “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no joke. “You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food”.
“When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence”. “They get used to that and start to eat again.
You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side”. “The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd”.
“Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”
The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America . The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time as the government forces us to participate in many of these programs whether or not we want to.
One should always remember two truths: There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself. If you see that all of this wonderful government “help” is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to share this with your friends.
God help us all when the gate slams shut!

Quote for today: “The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those that vote for a living.”
