A Theory That Predicts Eveything Is Not Science-Climate Change Is a Hoax

In the scientific method when used properly, a hypothesis is proposed and the experiments and research is carried out to see if the hypothesis is true or false. If a scenario by which a hypothesis can be proved false is non-existent, then the hypothesis then can not be considered a scientific proposition. There must be some type of thing that if it is proven true would falsify the hypothesis.

An example might be the hypothesis that at sea level on the earth pure water will boil at 212 degrees F. If someone were to perform this experiment at sea level and the pure water did not boil at 212 degrees F, then the hypothesis would be proven wrong.

Climate change

How does that relate to the myth of climate change. Well, if you may recall that only twenty or so years ago it was not known as “climate change”, but was called “global warming”. As more and more scientists began to look into the matter and study the facts of the science it became obvious that the science of the situation did not prove or support “global warming”. Compare the so-called science of global warming to the so-called science of thirty years earlier which was predicting a cooling of the climate which might issue in an ice age. Now, bear in mind that all these predictions were made by so-called men of science.

Can we really put any trust in a group of people who fifty years ago prophesied a coming ice age and then within thirty years of that time were then warning of global warming and then when the predicted phenomenon leveled out and was no longer presenting the promised threat to our environment, they conveniently substituted “climate change” for “global warming”. All of their terms seem to be quite fluid as to how they are interpreted.

Temperature

The main tool for measuring the climate is temperature. Temperature is a fluctuating matter. Depending on the location of the measurement temperature can vary greatly. Locations farther from the equator will no doubt have a lower average temperature than those closer to the equator. Those near large bodies of water will tend to have less fluctuation in temperature than those located in arid areas.

Temperature files have only been recorded and kept for only a couple of hundred years on a regular business, and that has not been on all parts of the globe. We are aware of times when certain areas of the globe were much cooler than they are now. That was according to what was defined as an “ice age”. The only real proof we have of this is the recorded history that has been passed down. Some scientists believe that we can take core samples of ice sheets and determine what temperatures were hundreds or thousands of years ago. Many other scientists question such findings.

The only way that “temperature” could be used to determine if an ice age or global warming were really taking place would be to have several thousand years of records that would show patterns of temperature fluctuation. Then we could determine if the fluctuations we are seeing over the past century or so are actually anything out of the norm.

Weather predictions and ramifications

If you have lived for any length of time you are aware that weathermen are notorious for missing their predictions. Even with all the sophisticated computers and computer programs and weather models they still miss it by miles in their predictions sometimes. There have been several instances in just the past few years when this was made evident.

I am glad to say that they fare pretty well when the weather satellites can follow the weather almost instantaneously. But even then, two or three days farther along they are often surprised by what happens.

Are climate change scientist really concerned about you

You might think that these climate change scientists are really concerned for you and your family. There are probably a few that are. But, if you really delve into the reasons why they push their particular agenda, you will find that it is not because they are concerned for you and your family.

The driving force behind “climate change”, or “global warming”, is a matter of being able to control you and your family and your country, no matter which country it is. Consider that some climate change supporters actually promote the idea that we should do away with 90% of the human population. Does that show concern for human life? I think not.

Actual variation in temperatures have been less than + or – 2 degrees centigrade over the passed 200 years. That means that it has gone down 2 degrees and gone up 2 degrees. The world has not ended during any of these fluctuations.

Is it science

It seems that no matter what happens the believers(yes, believers) of climate change use any situation to claim proof of “climate change”. On the east coast of the United States there were floods. Climate change was the reason given for these. On the west coast there are thousands and thousands of acres burned by wild fires. Climate change was the reason for these. The Arctic ice cap is supposedly shrinking. This is because of climate change. Yet, they fail to mention that the Antarctic ice sheet is growing. When everything that occurs, even opposing factors, is used as evidence for climate change, then the proposition is non-scientific. It is a religion. As is true in most religions, they want to dominate you.

Have you noticed that those who promote the hoax of climate change are the ones that abuse the climate the most. They fly expensive jet planes for personal use while they want you to fly coach or not fly at all. They hold expensive conferences which cost millions of dollars to set up. All the while they want you to foot the bill. They have managed to brainwash a generation who will believe every word that they speak, even though there may not be one shred of science to back it.

Weather cannot lie

Have you seen the weather channel’s new motto? “Weather can not lie.” Weather cannot lie because it is inanimate and cannot speak. But weathermen and weather women can lie, and they do. Maybe not intentionally. But when they read the prompter they repeat the lie that has come to be known as “climate change”. Most of them have no idea what they are saying. They, too, have been duped.

Conclusion

So, what is the answer to “climate change”? The answer is to look at it from the Creator of this world’s viewpoint. Oh, you may say, now you are talking religion. No, I am not. The “climate changers” speak for a worldview which is humanistic materialism. That is their “religion”. I speak from a Biblical worldview. You can correctly say that both are religions. The Supreme Court has said so.

The Creator created this world to be perfect. He declared it so at the end of the sixth day of creation when He called everything that He had made “very good”.

Yes, we see terrible things that happen because of weather, but do not blame that on the Creator. The reason we see bad things occurring in weather and in world events is because of what mankind has done. It began with Adam, our forefather, when he rebelled against our Creator. He brought sin into the perfect creation. And it has continued to affect every area of creation, even weather. In a sense, climate change(global warming) and all bad weather is caused by man. But it is not because we are humans, but because we have sinned and not acknowledged our need of our Creator and His salvation through His Son, Jesus.

We continue in our pride and think we can correct our sins. But, we can not. We must confess our sins and repent. We must receive the salvation which only our Creator can provide. That salvation was accomplished through His only-begotten Son, Jesus, when He died on a cross for the sins of all mankind.

The coming day

The day is coming soon when the Creator shall restore all things to the original perfect creation. There will be no need for weathermen or weather women. However, there will be a wonderful need for all to be scientists as we continue to discover how God’s creation is constructed and how it works. It will take eternity. What a glorious eternity it will be.

Free Online Money Making Opportunities-Are There Any

When beginning a search for opportunities for making money online, most of us will look for a way to try out something for free to see if we really want to pursue an online money making career. This is a little introduction to your beginning your search and hopefully it will save you some time and heartache and maybe some money, too.

Free online money making opportunities

There are numerous money making opportunities on the internet any of which have the potential to make the owner money to one degree or another. As in any business opportunity the investment in the enterprise will determine the return that one will receive.

Since we are talking about “Free” money making opportunities we are assuming that the investment that you are looking at is an investment of time. Not that time is a free commodity, but it is a commodity that you can invest where ever you may decide and that time can be converted into a currency which is a negotiable commodity. The “Free” we shall address is the “Free” that refers to the money aspect of the investment in building an online business.

Which type of online business

Before we get to making any suggestions as to which direction to go and what framework to build on, we must decide what type of online business we wish to build.

Storefront

There are storefront set-ups in which you decide on a product or types of products you wish to sell. You then build a website on which to display and promote these products on the internet. The problem with this model for the person wishing to build a “Free” online business is that there is usually a financial investment that is necessary to begin this type. There are some few possibilities and we shall mention one later in this blog.

Auction sales

Then there is the auction and sales business which is based and built on a platform which incorporates Ebay and Bonanza and such auction platforms. In these setups you may sell items which you have or sell items for other people or sell items using the “drop shipping” setup, which we shall discuss later in this article. It is simple to set up a “Free” account with Ebay or any of the auction sites. (You can find many simply by doing a google search for “auction sites”. You may choose one or more auction sites through which to sell your products. The free memberships are usually limited in the number of items you may sell. But when getting started you probably will not need to have to many products available.

Drop shipping

This type of business is usually paired with an ebay or storefront business. The usual beginning cost is the cost of purchasing of a domain and a hosting service for your online site. Though these costs are minimal($30 to $100) it is a necessary thing if you are to build an online business. Drop shipping is a structure in which you promote and advertise products on your site and sell them to people who wish to buy them. The advantage is that you do not have to stock any of the items that you advertise and sell.

To do this you ally yourself with one or more businesses that do drop shipping business(google “drop shippers”). Sign up with companies whose products you would like to promote. They will help you set up a “free” account and give you help in promoting their products on your website.

The process by which you make money is when someone makes a purchase on your site(usually through Paypal which is the simplest and a free way to receive payments, since we want “Free”), you then take the money which they have paid you and turn and order the product through the drop shipping company that supplies the product and you pay them the wholesale price. They will then handle the rest of the process and ship the product to the purchasing customer. You keep the difference between the purchase price and the wholesale price. In this way you have spent none of your money and have made a profit by providing a service to the purchaser and the drop shipper.

One must be diligent in choosing the products and the drop shippers that one works with. Not all products and not all drop shippers are equal. You must be willing to put in more time as your business grows. A lot of people have made good money using this platform. But to do that will take time and as you grow it will take more and more time. If you love to work and have the time this will be a good platform for you.

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is probably the most utilized form of online entrepreneurial enterprise. You must be willing to invest some of your time in the beginning and as your business grows you will invest some more time. But it is not the exponential growth of time involvement as in auctioning or drop shipping or even storefront.

In the beginning there must be a consistent and steady investment of your time. By this I mean from five to ten hours a week. You will know how much you can invest. Over time(6 months to a year) your business will begin to grow, gradually at first, but then as it grows its rate of growth will increase faster and faster. After a couple of years it will almost be self-sustaining growth. Of course you will continue to build your business, but the time factor will be greatly reduced.

How does it work? In affiliate marketing you will set up a website, usually a blog(you will learn what that is as you go) in which you promote certain products or lifestyles or interests. As you grow an audience you will offer them products to help them accomplish their goals. The products that you will offer will be done by referring them to companies that sell those products.

You do this by “affiliating” your online business with the companies that provide the products or services that they may wish to purchase. The company will provide links for you to insert in your website so that when one of your readers clicks on that “banner” or link they will be taken to the company’s website where they may purchase the products you have advertised. Any purchase made from a “click” through your website will be credited to you and you will be given a commission of an agreed upon amount(ranging from 4% to 70% depending on the product and company). You do not have to participate in the sale process at all. The company will pay you your commissions at agreed upon times and amounts.

This program has made many people rich beyond their highest hopes.

Recommendation

Any of these platforms can make the owner money. There are means by which you can begin any of these for “Free”, but there will come a time that you will need to return some of your profit to continue to feed the growth.

Almost any online promoter of these types of business will offer you a free trial. But that free trial expires within 30 to 90 days and you must purchase the full price of their product or you lose your time investment in building your site.

However, there is one platform that is totally “Free” and you are not tied to a time limit in which you must make a decision. The normal person, which I consider myself and many others, can not get enough knowledge in 30 to 90 days to know whether they can use a given platform to build their online business. You may end up as I did a time or two and feel pressured to join a program and after three or four months realize you could not work it, either because of lack of support or lack of knowledge base or the program was not what it said it was.

The program that I recommend gives you a totally “FREE” opportunity to set up your own website and gives you 10 free lessons to give you the tools to set up your own website to promote you own interests or products. They will also give you 2 “FREE” websites and host them for “FREE” so you can build your presence on the internet. Of course, you will not have access to the thousands of tools which are available to the “PREMIUM” membership. But you can use and learn with the two “FREE” websites for as long as you wish. You are never pressured to join the “PREMIUM” membership if you do not wish. You will be given opportunity to join if you wish, but never pressured.

The name of the program is Wealthy Affiliates. Wealthy Affiliates never makes outlandish promises about success but will give you realistic appraisal and direction in building your online business. If you decide by using the totally “FREE” program that Wealthy Affiliates is viable instrument for building a growing internet business, then you can join the “PREMIUM” program and gain access to thousands(yes I said thousands) of tools and teachings on how to build a successful online business.

The cost for these priceless tools is only $49 a month. You can purchase a yearly membership and save up to 40% off of the membership cost. Now, remember, you can take as long as you wish with the “FREE” program before you make a decision whether to join the “PREMIUM” or not. You may choose not to join. That is OK. Keep the “FREE” as a gift. You may decide later to join the “PREMIUM”. You can do that at any time you may wish.

At Wealthy Affiliates you will find many people who are just like you and are building their own online business. You will also find a wealth of knowledge and information which you will find no where else in one location. The support is phenomenal and is online 24 hours a day. You will get answers to your questions and problems within minutes(usually), not hours or days or never.

I hope you will take advantage of one of the best internet marketing programs available today by signing up for your “FREE” program membership.

Check out this chart below to compare the Free Program to the Premium Program.

 

I wish you success in your online business ventures. May God bless you and prosper you.

Health Benefits of Optimism – It’s All Good

The world we live in is full of pessimism. It is so easy to point out what is wrong with everything around us. But, is there any reason to be optimistic in a world that is forever trying to point out where everybody else is wrong and where they are right. How do such attitudes bear on the overall health of our society? Are there any health benefits of optimism?

Our health

Does an attitude of optimism have any effect the general health of individuals and societies? I am convinced that it does. Not just because of all the studies that have been done showing that it does, but also because I have lived for over seventy years and have seen times of pessimism and optimism and some that were neither optimistic nor pessimistic, but more like catatonic. Because of that I know that optimism is the preferred approach to any project that is undertaken. Whether it is an individual project or a small group or a large collective endeavor, optimism always brings a better final results.

I have known people who have had life threatening diseases and had the choice of becoming disheartened or approaching the treatment of the disease with a positive and conquering attitude. The one’s that I am most familiar with came out on top every time. But there were others who took a negative attitude and were always pointing out the bad things about the disease. Too many of those lost their battle in the end.

Attitude and health

More and more I am persuaded that attitude, a good attitude, is as good or better than the medicines which we used to help us attain good health. I have many friends who take vitamins and supplements by the handful every day, and yet they are constantly battling allergies and symptoms of all kinds. Their answer is to “throw” more vitamins and supplements at the symptoms. In the end, they have spent a lot of money on medicines and vitamins and supplements and still have the same problems, but less money.

Then there are others who when facing a symptom will take a positive attitude first and may or may not take a medicine or a vitamin or a supplement. They continue on their life with very little interruption and have far fewer problems from the effect no matter what is was. Most positive folks have come through the symptoms in a very short time, sometimes hours, sometimes a little longer, but no matter have ended up accomplishing far more than if they had taken a negative attitude and succumbed to the effects of the symptoms

Does optimism affect your health

Without a doubt optimism has a positive effect your health. Pick out some people that you know that are optimistic in the approach toward life and some who are pessimistic toward life. Study them to see which ones are the healthiest and who are more energetic. See which accomplish the most in their work and which can not seem to get as much done. I think that you will find that the optimistic person will get the most done.

This same principle applies in our health. You will find that optimistic people approach their health the same way. They are proactive. Though they want to eat healthy food, they do not feel the need to hyper diet to eat healthy. Though they desire to be healthy they do not have the need to always train for a marathon.

Optimism puts a spring in your step and even your daily walking about produces a gait that can not help but produce a higher level of health.

Does pessimism affect your health

I think you know the answer to that question. Check around you and find out what kind of health is produced by pessimistic people. By nature pessimists can not see the best of any situation but only the worst. Quite often the “worst” that they perceive is actually worse than the reality that is. Because of their attitude they begin to see and think things that are not necessarily so. So they begin to give in to the worst of any given situation. They lose heart and give up and the pessimism grows worse.

With such an attitude it is easy to see how the defense mechanisms of the body becomes weakened. The brain is the center where all the defenses of the mind and body are carried on and when it becomes overloaded with worry and fretting it will without a doubt suffer in the area of health defense and offense.

How to change your attitude

There are many people who have every right to have a bad attitude toward life. But, believe it or not, your attitude, as well as theirs, is a choice that you make.

I have known of people who have had terrible things happen to them along life’s way, yet they are positive and optimistic toward life. How can that be?

Then there are some who have practically everything they have ever wanted but have a pessimistic attitude toward life. How can that be?

As I said above, your attitude is a choice that you make.

I have a dear friend who is a multimillionaire. You might think that he is positive because he is a millionaire. He is positive, but not because he is a millionaire. Ask him about the seven times that he “went under” and had to declare bankruptcy. What was his attitude then. His attitude was, “So I failed. What can I learn from this failure?” He took optimistic attitude and never gave up on that attitude. It caused him to know that if he did not quit that he would succeed. He did and he still is succeeding.

I know of a man who was declared dead of leukemia by the lab blood tests, but he was optimistic that he would overcome the disease. To everyone’s surprise, but his, he is a healthy and thriving man. What if he had been a pessimist? He would have been just what the lab tests declared. But he was optimistic and positive and he got those results.

How can you become an optimist

Optimism can only be a force in your life if you know that your life is more than what you can see. You see, you are not just a body or just a body and a brain. You are a three-fold being. You are a body, a brain and a mind(spirit). Why do I say that? You see, you have a Creator, and the handbook, The Bible, declares that you are created in His image. Now, He says that He is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; three-fold.

Your Creator is by His own being optimistic. When He created everything, He declared it “very good”. What He says is always positive and optimistic. Now when Adam, the first man, rebelled against the Creator, he introduced pessimism into creation. That pessimism came because of “sin”. The only way to do away with pessimism is to overcome sin in your life. The only way to overcome sin in your life is to give up your life and accept the life which God wants you to have. He wants you to have an abundant and fully optimistic life both now and eternally.

Now, when He gives you that optimism, which is the Holy Spirit, your whole direction and attitude toward life will change. You can make the choice to let Him come into your life and begin right now to live a joyful and optimistic life beginning right now and continuing for eternity.

God bless you!

Evolution and Thanksgiving

Being thankful implies that there are at least two sentient entities involved. One party has received something of value from the other and for that said party expresses gratitude for whatever the something is or was.

Can evolution allow for gratitude or thankfulness

To answer this question we must first understand how evolution works. According to those who espouse evolution, it is an all natural unguided process. There is no forethought or planning but only the natural laws of nature and the elements of nature. This applies to the whole gamut of life and its processes. In essence, evolution is merely atoms bouncing around bumping into other atoms and whatever happens is what ever happens.

Then the evolutionists contradict themselves by adding the term of “natural selection” into the mix. This is defined as nature “selecting” certain traits or structures to be reproduced in succeeding generations. The question is, how can any process which is supposed to be things just bumping around running into one another with no guidance what so ever all of a sudden make a decision. To make a decision means to have fore thought. It means there is a choice or choices and a thought out decision must be made. Is it evolution(accidents) or is it thought out direction and intelligent design. It seems that evolutionists want it both ways. This is especially true when their original premises lacks any sound science or logic.

Since evolution is merely accident after accident happening there can be no foundation for thinking that there would be two parties much less one party that would help another party by accident. If it were an accident, there would be no need for thanks on the other party’s part, if they were even aware that good had been done for them.

 

No thanks in evolution

There can be no thanks in evolution. Among the original premises of evolution was the survival of the fittest. According to the promoters of evolution, only the ones who were the most fitted to survive would survive to carry on their species. We still see this thought promoted in all our wild life documentaries as we see bighorn male sheep butt heads together to prove who is the most fit to carry on his DNA. The same thing among deer, buffaloes, giraffes, wolves and a miriad of other species. I would like to ask these so-called scientists if they have ever interviewed any of these animals to ask them why they do this. Are they really doing to pass on their DNA, or is there some other reason? One’s worldview is probably playing a part in their dialog. No one has ever interviewed any of those animals. It is all a made up story. Make up your own story. It is just as valid as the “scientist’s” fairy tale.

Morality is situational

Thankfulness is grounded in morality. As you learn more about evolution you will soon come to the understanding that there is no grounding for morality in the evolutionary structure. Morality assumes a standard and structure of what is good and what is not good. Evolution is based merely on who or whatever ends up “on top” has the right to do what he wants. He determines what morality is and what right is.

In twentieth century world history we can cite three such situations. In the communist revolution in Russia, Stalin decided what was good for Russia and to fulfill that “good” he systematically murdered millions of people. In the lead up to World War II, Hitler killed at lest 6 million Jews(because they were an inferior race of peoples according to Hitler). Then in the communist revolution in China, Mao Tse Dong murdered 50 million people because they were not necessary for his purposes.

These three leaders were all believers in evolution and used that as the reason to carry out the atrocities that they did. Can you tell me how thankfulness fits into that scheme?

Where does thankfulness come from

Thankfulness comes when a weaker party is blessed by a stronger party when there was no help in sight. Only in this type of circumstance will we find true thankfulness. From time to time we see and hear of people doing extraordinary things to help someone when there was no help in sight. We often hear people express thanks to the people who have served in our armed services as they thank them for their service to our country. Why do they do this? Probably because they themselves were not able to go and do what the person did in service to our country. This is a true form of thankfulness. Next time you see a service person or a veteran please express your thankfulness.

There are many times in our lives when we face situations that are beyond our own ability to meet or overcome and in that situation someone comes along to help us through it. In those times we can understand what true thankfulness is. It is not a payment for the help given but a true recognition of the help given by one human being to another, a help which has no price tag and which no amount of money could repay. But thankfulness expresses our understanding of that.

The real reason to be thankful

Life as we live day by day will have many situations when we will need help for which thankfulness will be the only payment we can render. But the greatest help that any person can receive is the eternal help which has been provided by our Creator. Because of what our forefather Adam did, every one of us is in a situation that we are helpless to solve. Because of Adam’s rebellion we are natural born rebels. That means that we rebel against our Creator. It would be nice to think that there might be some who do not rebel, but that is not the case.

But, “Praise God”, He did not leave us helpless. He has provided a free gift of salvation to all who would receive it. Just as any gift, it will not be forced on you, you can receive it or reject it. You can not pay for it or pay for a little of it. You either receive it all or you receive none of it. When you receive it you will understand true thankfulness. When we were without hope, Jesus died for us. He did all that was necessary. Just receive it and be thankful. Do not be like the evolutionist in his pride who thinks he is as good as God and does not need to be thankful to Him.

Best Online Marketing Business-When You Are Serious About Online Business Building

When you finally get serious about building an online business, the last thing you need is to be wasting your time searching through pages and pages of possibilities on google. I am writing this blog in hopes of helping you avoid some of the online business scams that are out there and point you in the direction that will help you accomplish what you desire.

So many to choose from

You have probably googled “online marketing business” or “how to build an online business” or even “things to avoid in beginning an online business”. If you have, that is good. It shows a serious approach to beginning what can be a long and profitable experience in an online business. But the time must come when you must narrow it down to what you believe to be the best online marketing business platform for you.

You will decide that depending on what kind of business you plan to build. If you like direct sales, you may build an online storefront and sell directly to people who are looking for the products that you wish to promote.

Or you may not wish to deal with the direct sell and all the tools necessary to carry out such a business. In that case you may prefer a business in which you advertise products on your site but do not inventory them yourself. Instead, you work with a drop shipper who stocks the product. You make the sale and collect the payment for the product and then pay the drop shipper for the product and he then handles the rest of the process in preparing and shipping the product to the customer.

Then there is the affiliate marketer. The affiliate marketer is one who does not house a product or even receives payment for a product and does not pay a dealer for the product. The affiliate marketer is one who signs up as an “affiliate” with a company that markets certain products or many products. The affiliate then promotes the product through his or her website which is usually a blog site sharing information related to the product or areas in which the product may be used. A link is provided by the product maker to the “affiliate” to place on his site. When a visitor to the affiliates site clicks on the banner or advertisement for the product he is directed to the products main site. The link contains information which tells the product company which affiliate directed the customer to their site. If the customer makes a purchase, the product company will pay a percentage of that sell to the “affiliate”. That percentage may range from as little as 5% to as much as 70% depending on the product. Almost all companies of any size have an affiliate program.

The Best approach for building an online business

As in types of online businesses there are many, so also is the methods by which you approach the building of the business. Let me state up front, that just as in a brick and mortar business it takes time to build and establish a reputation and clientele, the same is true in an online business, too. It would be wise to avoid any promotion that promises you anything that is quick and easy. No amount of money upfront will get you quick success in an online business

Just a few things you should regard as red flags in your search for the right online business platform:

  • Avoid get-rich-quick schemes.
  • Check for bad reviews of any program you consider
  • Do not pay with anything but a credit card. With a credit card you can refute the payment if it is not what it is described to be. Do not pay with a debit card.
  • Do not try a program that will not give you a free trial or a free trial period.
  • Avoid programs that begin with a small payment and then promote upsells to make your program work better.
  • Do not get into a program that does not have good support and 24 hour support for your business

Your choice

The ultimate choice is going to be yours and yours only. But if you are armed with knowledge  you will be able to determine which is the best avenue for you and what is the best internet marketing training program for you.

What I would like to do is share a little of the knowledge that I have gained as I went about to begin my own online business and where I found  the best online marketing courses.

I was not as wise as you are(you are reading this at the beginning of your search, I hope) because I did not do much research as to how I wanted to build my business online. I jumped in with both feet and signed up for a “get-rich-quick” product that promised to begin making me income within a week or so. Because I had not researched the types of programs available I believed everything they said. It costs me more money than I care to tell and in the end I had nothing to show for it except credit card debt.

It took me a couple of more adventures and losses before I finally got serious about online business and did some heavy research. What I found in several days and weeks of research was the program that I am now a part of.  Not only am I convinced that it is the best internet marketing training program, also has the best online marketing courses available.  No one even comes close.

Wealthy Affiliates

Wealthy Affiliate Program
Best Online Business Program

The program that I am talking about is Wealthy Affiliates. This is a program which has been established and working for over 13 years and was established and still maintained by the two men who began it. Though the name may make you think that it is just geared to developing affiliates, it is really much more. It is a program that will teach you how to do everything that is necessary to build and maintain and grow your own online internet business. It is not just geared to affiliate marketing but to any kind of online business that you may choose to pursue.

Wealthy Affiliates is supported by hundreds of structured lessons dealing with almost every conceivable problem you might encounter in your online business. For the rare occasion that you may not find a lesson to answer your question, you can go to 24 hour support and receive an answer in minutes instead of hours or days. The library of support is continually being enhanced and updated. There is no other program that comes anywhere close to Wealthy Affiliates

What do you get?

Earlier in this article I mentioned about a free trial of any program you may consider. Most reputable online programs will give you a 30-day free trial but you must register a credit card. If you do not cancel before the end of the trial period you will automatically be charged for the full membership.

Wealthy Affiliate is not like that. Their FREE TRIAL is just that, FREE! You do not register a credit card. In fact, if you choose not to join the Wealthy Affiliate PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP, you do not have to do a thing. Even if you do not choose to join Wealthy Affiliates you can keep and utilize what you get with the FREE TRIAL. What you get is 10 free lessons on how to set up a site for your online business or blog which promotes your business. To practice what you learn you will receive two free websites for you to build and develop as you see fit. They will be hosted for free by Wealthy Affiliate hosting.

If, however, you like what you see and would like to join the PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP you can do that. There will never be any pressure put on you to join, though there will be opportunities presented which may save you money.

You may be wondering, “How much does this cost?” That is a fair question. The monthly fee is $49. When you consider all that you receive and have access to for that $49 you will see that it is a real bargain. If you were to pay a separate fee for all the tools and access that you have in Wealthy Affiliates you would be paying hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars a month. But through the Wealthy Affiliate access it is only $49 a month. If you choose to join on a yearly membership it is even cheaper.

What to expect

First let me tell you what not to expect. Do not expect to get-rich-quick. The Wealthy Affiliate program is built on the foundation that every successful business is built on. You can expect to get out of your business in proportion to what you put into your business. If you put in little time, then do not expect big returns. But, if through patience and perseverance you build your online business, in time you will begin to reap the crops of your work.

An advantage of Affiliate Marketing is that a promotion or blog you publish today may not begin bringing in money for a couple of months or more but when it does begin to bring in money it will grow and continue to grow without added input. This is where your patience will profit you greatly. A good affiliate site will bring you income for many years. It will take time to get established but you will find all the help and encouragement you will need at Wealthy Affiliates.

You are never locked in. If you for some reason can not continue your membership, you can exit the program but continue the free membership and can re-enter at any time you may choose.

If you are patient and persevere you will succeed. The degree to which you succeed will be determined by you and no one else.

Check out the chart that I am inserting below. Try the FREE MEMBERSHIP and see if Wealthy Affiliate is the right program for you. I wish you well and may God bless you.

Evolution Creation and Logic

Logic is not a tool of the evolutionist. If he were to use logic in his study of living things he would never even consider invoking the term of evolution. Evolution and creation are the two choices that one has when addressing the variety that is found in living things. Why would some choose evolution if it is not logical? What about creation makes it logical?

Evolution

Over the past century and a half evolutionists have waged a propaganda campaign to convince the western world that evolution is the correct way to address the variety which we find in living things today. Originally it began by stating that somehow certain chemicals and elements came together at just the right time in just the right amount in just the right conditions to spark the first living thing.

That living thing somehow managed to survive a hostile environment and reproduced itself and then its offspring reproduced and its offspring reproduced etc. Through thousands of generations this little living cell underwent minute changes as it adapted to its environment. These little changes were then passed on to the next generation and the next generation would make more changes as each adapted to each situation. This continued for millions and billions of years until we see what we see today.

In the mid 19th century they were able to spread their “fairy tale” of evolution because little was known of what was necessary for a living cell to be living. As knowledge of living cells increased the evolutionists found themselves having to divorce themselves from the beginning of life spark. When knowledge increased and it was found that the simplest living cell must contain over 400 proteins to carry on all the processes necessary for life, they realized that an accident of that proportion was incomprehensible. So, some evolutionists “kicked the can down the road” and allowed that “maybe aliens seeded earth with life.”

Illogic of spontaneous generation of life

The reason for abandoning the beginning spark of life by evolutionists was because even their own lack of logic could not expand to take in the impossibilities that it presented.

The science of probability was too overwhelming to refute. The standards of probability affects logic. The standard set for a thing that will never happen is set at a point when for something that reaches a point where it is 1 chance in 10>40(that is 10 followed by 40 zeros) it is logical to state that it will never happen.

What is the possibility of one protein to form by chance? (Remember it takes over 40 proteins for a cell to be alive by definition). The possibility is 1 chance in 10>108(that is 10 followed by 108 zeros). That is a big number. But let’s see if we can understand it even better. There are 10>80(that is 10 followed by 80 zeros) atoms in the whole universe.

Using your God given logical brain and mind, do you think that it is logical that even the simplest living thing could somehow spontaneously appear? It would take a “miracle”! But, you see, miracles are not allowed by the evolutionist, unless it can fit into evolution. If you can describe the miracle as evolution, it is OK. But it must be evolution, not a miracle.

Propaganda

Since evolutionists could not use logic they used propaganda. You see, as was stated before, evolutionists base their “religion” on change. Originally, the change they preached was change that caused a living thing to grow a little more complex from one generation to another. As this change continued generation after generation they assumed that after a long time a new life form would develop. As this would go on for millions of years there would be brought about the diversity which we see in our world.

Of course there were many examples presented which showed small changes in given species. These small changes were then presented as proof that over millions of years major changes could occur. Of course, no one could live that long to really find out if that were true or not. So the propaganda worked.

To prove the millions and billions of years new ways of determining the age of the earth had to be proposed. There are several and most are based on the decay of radioactive substances in the crust of the earth. For instance, uranium 238 has a half-life of approximately 4.5 billion years. So, they found some rocks which had half uranium 238 and half lead 206. From this they deduce that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. To arbitrarily state that is not logical or truthful. Why? Because no one knows how much uranium 238 or how much lead 206 was present in the rock when it was formed. In fact there have been many instances when a certain lay down of rock was formed that the radioactive calculation was massively wrong. That should be enough to bring into question every estimate which ever used radioactive dating. But, evolutionists are not logical.

What about creation

How does the creation approach stack up to logic. From the theory of relativity we understand that time, space and matter(energy) are the ingredients of the universe we live in. However, almost 4000 years ago there was recorded this amazing statement; In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. In this statement we see time(beginning), heavens(space) and earth(matter). The creation picture fits what we see in our universe. At one time evolutionists admitted that there was a beginning of our universe, but that seemed to be acquiescing to the creation narrative so they invented multi-verses, another “fairy tale”. They dare not let a “Divine foot in the door”. Once again the evolutionists venture into the land of illogic.

The creation narrative presents all things designed to accomplish the things for which they are designed. Birds fly, fish swim, people walk, humming birds hoover, woodpeckers peck, hands grasp, eyes see, ears hear, noses smell and on and on the designs go. Each created thing was perfect in the beginning.

What happened?

But perfection is not what we see now. Why? Evolution says that imperfection is weeded out by natural selection. Therefore, it is necessary for the evolving of each species. That is not logical. If imperfection and death is the tool of evolution how did life ever start? That is not logical.

Creation posits that “sin”(imperfection) entered the creation because of mankind’s rebellion against his Creator. Because of that, death came. We know that the scripture in Genesis that the Creator warned about eating of the forbidden tree that “in dieing you will die” we find in all creation the degrading of the DNA which carries the information of life to every cell in our body. It is a scientific fact that every seven years the cells in our bodies are replaced. It is also noted that the connectors of the genes of our DNA is just a little shorter than the ones they replace in the new cell. As we continue to grow older, the connectors(telomeres) get shorter and shorter until one day they are no longer able to connect the information in our DNA. That is when our physical bodies die. “In dying, you shall die”. It follows logically.

The creations agree with the first and second laws of thermodynamics. It agree with the law of cause and effect. It allows that miracles happen because the cause is always greater than the effect. An all knowing, all powerful, omnipresent Being is not limited by what He has created. He established the laws of creation and sustains them so that they can be studied and know that once found it will be consistent. Evolution makes no such assertion.

Logic

Logic dictates that creation is the only viable choice for the existence of the universe. You can use your mind and brain that God has given you and study the Bible and science and critically evaluate what you find and then weigh the logic of your findings.

The Bible teaches that the beginning of wisdom is the fear(respect) of the Lord. The choice is yours. You can honor and respect God’s word or you can do as Adam and Eve did, you can revolt and declare yourself as god. You are created to have a choice. But be aware, there are consequences for the decisions you make. You can choose glorious life everlasting with your Creator or everlasting torment with the devil and his angels in hell.

I trust, that because you have read this article, you have enough wisdom to at least consider the logic set forth here.

May God bless you as you decide.

Science Proves Evolution Wrong-Human Evolution Is False

Theory of human evolution

One of the most controlling influences of modern time has been the philosophy of the evolution of all life. It permeates every nook and crany of our lives today. Just about any area of study tries to find its connection to and its place in the picture of evolution. Charles Darwin

Though all that is observed in the universe is supposedly connected to evolution, the one that is promoted the most is that of biological evolution. The story goes that somehow some molecules of some elements accidentally came together at just the right time, at just the right balance, in just the right conditions, with just the right input of energy to bring about something that was living and was able to reproduce itself before it disappeared. This supposedly continued to happen for millions of generations of continued perfectly balanced conditions in that the “now living thing” began to “evolve” and become more complex. How it was able to do this is beyond the realm of scientific explanation of today’s scientists.

“Scientists” are continually concocting new and more elaborate scenarios by which these complicated living things “could have evolved”. It seems today that logic in science is not a viable tool. Occam’s razor used to be a good and logical explanation to the resolution of any given problem. (Occam’s Razor says that in a case where there are two explanations for a given occurrence that the one that requires the least explanation is usually the better).

Instead, today, to spread the falsehood of evolution, elaborate fairy tales of how something came to be is the preferred approach. It one “fairy tale” is proved wrong, then another is created. These “fairy tales” are not based on observable science or on scientific laws. They are made up because there is no sound scientific evidence to support their belief of how a thing came into being.

Reasons why evolution false

You may wonder that evolution is false why is it so prevalent in our society. It was Hitler(Do you know who Hitler was?) who made the phrase, “If you repeat a lie enough, people will begin to believe it is the truth.” Well, he was not the one that first employed that technique. When Darwin published his “On the Origin of Species” in 1859 there began a campaign to convince the common folks that evolution was a fact. There were a few things that had to be “fine-tuned” if the “lie” was to be accepted.

The first thing they had to do was to begin with something simple that the average person could easily grasp and that could be easily manipulated by the ruling class. This simple tool was to change the definition of what was meant by evolution.

Instead of emphasizing the enormous complexity of changing a living thing from one type to another type, they defined evolution as “merely” change. By emphasizing small changes that could easily be quantified, they then extrapolated those small changes to species evolving changes. Unless one were somewhat knowledgeable of biology it would be easy to be fooled by such a ploy.

Evolution began on a false foundation and continues to be built on unprovable “fairy tales” of what may have happened. When one “fairy tale” is proved wrong it is merely replaced by another until it is proved wrong.

Facts that prove evolution wrong

Let’s look at few scientific facts that prove evolution wrong. Almost all evolutionists believe(yes, it is a belief system) that what we observe as our universe began as nothing. Of course, they refute this by saying that it was actually a “singularity” about the size of a period on this page. In so stating they merely move the situation back one step. They must still account for all the matter that is observed in the universe.

Because of the Theory of Relativity we know that matter and energy and time are interrelated. Matter and energy are different expressions of the same thing. Matter can be changed to energy and energy can be changed to matter but neither can be created or destroyed. The First Law of Thermodynamics clearly states this fact. Evolutionists with their “Big Bang” scenario can not logically explain the existence of our universe.

The second law of thermodynamics states that in a given system entropy increases continually. Entropy is the condition of continual increase of disorder. Stated simply, any system will wind down until it is no longer functional of lacks usable energy. Evolutionists offer many “explanations” but can not in the end prove their point and overcome the second law of thermodynamics. To bad for the evolutionists, every system we know is constantly increasing in disorder which is contradictory of Darwinian evolution.thermodynamics

The law of cause and effect say that the cause is always greater than the effect. Even if the “Big Bang” were viable, the agent of cause would be much greater. Apart from the “Big Bang”, the amount of energy contained within the universe would have to be less than the cause which imparted the energy. Evolution claims that a lesser entity brings about a greater entity which is opposite of the law of cause and effect.

The laws of probability have determined that the possibility of one protein essential to life, of which over 400 are necessary for the “simplest” living form, would occur one time in 10>104. The law of probability says that anything which occurs in one in 10>40 or greater is never going to happen. It is therefore logic to know that life happening by chance, or evolution, or spontaneous generation, will never happen.

Science proves evolution wrong

Yes, the science that evolutionists say they promote actually disproves what they say it proves. So, if they are not teaching real science when they teach evolution, what are they teaching.

The answer to the above question is that they are teaching a belief, in essence a religion. Evolutionists are basically atheists. More correctly stated, they are anti-theists. They are against the fact of creation by an omnipotent being who is in control of His creation. For them to acknowledge such a being would necessitate their subjection to that being. That they do not wish to do.

Religion or science

Because evolutionists do not wish to honor a creator being they have chosen the field of science to be their avenue of evangelizing. Since the sixteenth century the field of science has grown continually in its imminence. Because godly scientists followed the Bible and its precepts they developed things such as the scientific method. By studying the Bible and then proposing hypothesis they could test their hypothesis to see if their reasoning was right. This proved to be enlightening and the science became a trusted field of study.

Evolutionists realized the influence that science had and began to make inroads in the field. This began well before Darwin but reached a tipping point in Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species”. With the help of some atheist promoters it gained traction and grew in influence in the field of science. It has continued to do so and has now even entered into the government control whereby government supported school systems can only teach evolutionary biology.

Conclusion

If only one of the facts we have presented proves evolution false, then it is false. The laws of thermodynamics have shown that evolution is impossible. The laws of logic say that evolution is false. That should settle it. But look for more articles in the future which I shall show that DNA proves evolution false.

Encouragement

Let me encourage you to use an inquiring mind when approaching anything that scientists or anyone says. Yes, even what I may say. Please do your own research and know for certain what you know and what you can believe.

Just because someone may claim authority does not mean that they are authority. There is only one final authority and that is found in the One Who is the Creator of all that we comprehend. It is well worth your while to get acquainted with your Creator and what His thoughts are. One of the amazing things about our Creator is that He loves us so very much.

I would like to link you to some other articles that can explain how much He loves you and cares for you. No matter what your situation is He desires to bless you and have you dwell in His presence.

Start Your Own Internet Business and Avoid Marketing Scams

If you are like most people who decide to start their own internet business, you are enthusiastic and excited about the prospects of making good money with a nominal amount of time invested in your business. However, it would be a wise thing to temper your excitement and enthusiasm with a lot of patience and wisdom. The question of course is, “Where to find a source of wisdom and how do you temper enthusiasm and excitement.

You have begun wisely by reading about how to start your own internet business. The more you read and research, the better. There should come a time that all the study and seeking should be put into practice. Otherwise there will be no business and no success. But be encouraged, you have begun wisely.

Avoid marketing scams

To tell you to avoid marketing scams is to preclude that you will search out many opportunities by which to build your online business. There are scams a plenty out there and they are just waiting to take your money. How are you going to know what is a scam and what is not? Because you are reading this article tells you that you have taken a step in the right direction.

Building a store

There are many legitimate online business opportunities out there and you will no doubt spend an inordinate amount of time checking out many of them. Those online businesses that are legitimate will sooner or later make you money depending on the time and investment you put into them. If you have plenty of cash to invest in your online business you may wish to set up an online business store. It is not the stocking of the inventory that will cost. Rather it is the building of the store site and promotion of the online store that will take money as well as time. If done properly, it will in time bring a profit.

There are several platforms for building online storefronts any of which have been effective in bringing excellent income for the owners. However, you must be ready to invest a fair amount of money into developing a good website and then spending a good amount in having an SEO specialist or some other advertising specialist to get you on the first page of major search engines.

Don’t have much money?

This is where most of us who start an online business are. Making ends meet but not having much, if any, left over. So, there is little if any cash to be able to invest in an own line business that costs very much. There are many in this state that turn to avenues such as Ebay and Bonanza. Typically, these types are auctions in which people go online and bid on products that have been listed for auction.

More and more these sites are becoming items for sale by people who run their business by selling their products on the auction site for a set price. Sites such as these are more and more encouraging members to set up their own store of products within the framework of the site. As this has developed more and more have entered into the field of “dropship marketing”. Depending on the amount of time that you have to put in, this can be a profitable enterprise.

Dropshipping is the practice by which an online business entity sets up an account with a product provider in which the online business entity advertises the product and makes the sale for a given price. He then takes the money which has been paid to him and purchases the product at a wholesale price from the drop shipper. The drop shipper then ships the product straight to the person who purchased it from the online seller. The seller never touches the product. He only receives the payment and then out of that amount pays the drop shipper who handles the rest of the transaction. The difference between what the seller is paid and what he pays the drop shipper is the sellers profit. Many have made a lot of money in this business. Though there are some shortcomings to this type of online business, the biggest may be the amount of time that must continually be invested. For some, this is ideal because they like to stay busy. For others, who like occasional respites, it may not be the best.

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular of online business forms. You may ask, “What is affiliate marketing?”. Affiliate marketing is a practice which almost every company of any size engages in.

The way it works is that people who have a website or blog and wish to promote certain products through their blog will “affiliate” themselves with a company that sells products related to their blog or site. By “affiliating” themselves with the company, the company provides them with links to their company site and products by which visitors to the blog can click on to go to that product on the companies site. There is information in the link that identifies the site or blog through which the customer clicked to get to the company’s site.

If the “clicker” ends up making a purchase of a product from the seller, the seller will give an agreed upon percentage of the sale to the “affiliate”. Individual sales may not seem like a lot of money, but as the traffic builds it can amount to thousands and thousands of dollars. It usually takes many months and sometimes a year or two to build that kind of affiliate linking. But thousands have done it and thousands more are doing it every day.

Once an affiliate’s site begins to draw traffic and direct clicks to the site it will be an ongoing and growing business. It becomes almost a passive income, with minimal upkeep to keep the money flowing.

Contrasted to an online store which takes lots of time to build and establish and then lots of time to maintain and keep growing, affiliate marketing does take time to establish and get built up and some amount of money investment(not very much though), but once established the time investment is greatly reduced. Then if you wish you can build another affiliate marketing site.

Scams to avoid

As I said earlier in the article, there are plenty of scams awaiting to get your attention. Let me list a few things for you to avoid and save you the heartache of being scammed.

  • If they promise you that you will get rich fast, avoid them. Do not even consider them.
  • If they want a large amount of money up front, for any reason, don’t do it.
  • If they show you a website that makes thousands of dollars a month but they do not tell you how long it took to get to that point or how much money it has cost to get to that point, don’t do it.
  • If they say you can start with as little as $17, watch out. That is just the beginning of siphoning money from your pocket. The first payment will set you up, but you won’t have any products or knowledge on how to go any further. That will cost you more, and more, and more, etc. Don’t do it!
  • If they promise a website built just for you but they provide no knowledge of how to maintain or grow your site, then don’t do it.
  • If they want you to sign a lot of online legal documents, don’t do it.
  • If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Don’t do it!

Let me give you my opinion

I have had some experience in trying to start my own internet business. I really messed up once or twice. But, Praise God, He is merciful and I have found a great platform by which I have started my own home internet business. It is taking time and patience. But any business worthwhile will take as much.

The platform that I recommend is Wealthy Affiliates. This is not just one person or one company that promotes this product or improves it continually. It is a community of thousands of members who all have a part in building the product as they utilize it in their own online businesses. They are so confident about the viability of the product that you can actually use it for free for as long as you wish. Of course, the Free Version does not include all the tools that the Premium Version does. But it has enough of the tools that you can get the knowledge and the tools to build your own website to establish your own affiliate marketing site.

Now, when I say “Free”, I mean “Free”. You do not register a credit card. You do register your email address, though. Ten free lessons and two free websites are included. Study the lessons. Build your website. Then if you think this is the product for you, join the Premium Version for only $49 a month(cheaper than that by the year) and get all the knowledge, support and tools that you could ever want or need. The knowledge bank of Wealthy Affiliates is ever being increased. You will never run out of knowledge to be gained.

I could go on and on, but I’ll just give you a chart below to compare the Free Version to the Premium Version. You know what is best for your own situation. But I hope that this has helped you to know how to start your own internet business.

God bless you and prosper you!

 

 

 

 

Better Understanding the Bible-Key to Understanding the Bible

There seems to be no lack of teachers or preachers who are ready to tell you what a Christian should be and how he or she should attain that status. There have been volumes and volumes written on how to attain what the Bible says about being a Christian.

To that end I would like to share what the Holy Spirit has shown me and maybe it can help you in better understanding the Bible and what its’ purpose is in your life.

What is the Bible?

God's Word
Holy Bible

Just about everyone who is the least bit familiar with the Bible will answer that it is the Word of God. Some will clarify that further by saying that it is the inspired Word of God. Of course, both definitions are correct. Those who have studied and applied it regularly will add to that, that it is the infallible inspired Word of God. “Infallible” meaning that it is correct and without error in all that it says.

There are many who will say that the Bible is a great book but that it is no different from any of the other “so-called” holy books of the world. This is a point where Christianity diverges from all other religions. That is not to say that Christianity tries to put down other “holy books” but that it declares that the Bible is the true declaration of man’s spiritual situation and the only true remedy for that situation. For this reason, all other religions and approaches to mankind’s problems are consistently opposed to Biblical teachings.

You will find these things true in relation to how to attain eternal salvation, relationship between sexes, sexual orientation, demonic activity and many other things. Christianity is unique (along with Judaism) in its approach to its structure of civilization. Because the Bible teaches that there is one and only one way to attain right standing with the Creator, it has to stand alone.

The key to better understanding the Bible

The Law
The Law

As was stated above, there have been libraries of books written on how to understand the Bible and how to apply it to the daily Christian life. It is my hope to present a scriptural approach to reading, understanding and applying the truths of the Bible. We shall use the Bible to prove the Bible.

Let us begin by looking at James 1:22 and following. It says, “Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his face in a mirror. For he beholds himself and goeth his way, and straightway forgets what manner of man he was. But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”

Look at Galatians 5:22-23. It says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Against such there is no law.” The last phrase in those verses means that there is no law that you can keep that will cause these fruits to be evident in your life. In other words, You can not set up guidelines or rules or practices that will cause you to develop these traits. These are the fruit of the Holy Spirit. You are not capable of growing them apart from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Galatians 2:21 confirms it. “Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid:for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.”

If we understand James and realize that our righteousness is not of ourselves and that the Word of God, and especially the New Testament is a mirror into which we look to see who we are in Christ Jesus. In 2 Corinthians 5:17 it says that “If any man be in Christ Jesus he is a new creation.” To find out what that “new creation” looks like and what he does, we must look into the mirror of the Word of God. The mirror shows us what we are, not what we are supposed to be.

 

Understanding

For centuries the mainstream Christian establishment has been in the business of setting up standards and goals to which Christians should strive for. In so doing they have established a new set of laws by which a Christian’s life is judged and determined to have grown and advanced in the Christian life. As we have seen in the scripture, this is not the method that God has set forth in His Word. Galatians 6:15 states it clearly: “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.” The “circumcision” here refers to the keeping of the law, or a law. So, it is not your measuring up to a given set of rules or following certain practices that makes one a Christian, it is whether you are a new creation in Christ Jesus. The reality is that you and I could never measure up, no matter what the standard is. Jesus is the only One that could measure up and He has already done it. If you are in Him, you have already measured up to God’s standard. No following of rules or man made plans can cause you to be anymore favorable in God’s sight than you are right now in Christ Jesus.

The Mirror of the Word

The Word is a mirror
Mirror of the Word of God

So, when you read the Bible it is not for the purpose of what you must strive to attain, but it is to look into the mirror and see what you are in Christ Jesus. As I said above, you can not do anything to be more favorable in God’s eyes than you are right now in Christ Jesus.

We saw in Galatians 5 that the Holy Spirit bears fruit. He does not need you to develop that fruit. You can not do that in the flesh. This is fruit which only the Holy Spirit can produce. If this fruit is not evident in your life, I encourage you to take an honest evaluation of who is running your life. If the fruit is not evident,(and it will be evident if the Holy Spirit is there) then I encourage you to invite the Lord Jesus to come and take control of your life and fill you with the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 2:20 describes what happens when you do this: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet, not I but Christ lives in me: and the life I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God Who loved me and gave Himself for me.” All the weight of trying to “live the Christian life” is taken off your shoulders. Now, you can relax and begin looking into the “Mirror” and seeing what you are in Christ Jesus.

Conclusion

I hope that you are beginning to understand that God does not expect you to “measure up” or work hard to please Him. If you are in Christ Jesus, you are totally pleasing to Him. He has come to live in you and you will see the fruit which He bears being produced in the life you are living.

The Bible is not given for you to have another set of rules for you to strive to attain or to ask God to “help you” to reach. He has already done everything in Christ Jesus that needs to be done. For you, or me, or anybody to think that we can add to what God has done in Christ Jesus, would be a slap in God’s face. He has given His best. And it was more than enough.

Begin to read the Word of God and use it as a mirror to see who you are in Christ Jesus.

How Can I Avoid Online Marketing Scams?

That is the question!

If you have been interested in building an online business and have begun to look around the internet to see what is out there, this should be one of your most important questions. When I began to look for a way to make some money online, I did not even consider that there might be more scams than real business opportunities. I learned the hard way that there are not just a few scams awaiting the naive entrepreneur, but that there are far more scams than there are opportunities for the honest business builder.

If you will begin your search with first of all a good dose of skepticism and then study several people who have succeeded online. Then look for a platform and system that can be built upon which emphasizes knowledge, work input, patience and continued learning, then you may be looking at a system that will give you a business that will not just make you money but will be a business that can make you rich and help a lot of people.

How to avoid scams – What to lookout for

Before we get to the things to look for in a good business building platform, let’s look at some things that you will come across that will try to take your money and sooner or later leave you without a business or money or an online presence.

Fast money

One of the first things that should catch your attention and make you think “scam”, is the pitch that you can make big money fast. There are many online platforms that can make a lot of money in the long run, but there are none that can make big money “overnight”. There was one that promised that if you purchased their product, that within two weeks you could increase your investment tenfold. Along with the presentation were three or four video testimonials of individuals who claimed to have done just that. But what was not told was that those testimonies were purchased on “fiver”. For you who do not know what “fiver” is, it is a site where you can go and pay one of the members to make a video endorsing your product and telling how they got rich. The cost of such promos begin at $5, hence the name “fiver”. You can understand how that is a scam.

Your own website

Then there are those will for a price set you up your own website to sell products for Amazon. These can range from a cost of several thousand dollars to a couple of hundred dollars. The claim is that they will build your site for you and stock it with products from Amazon. Then you just sit back and get rich. Once they convince you that you can make money fast and get rich with just a few minutes a day they pitch the price and get you to buy their deal. What they do not tell you is how to maintain and grow your website or how to get people to your website so that they can buy the Amazon products. To get these learning products will cost you more money. And as you continue in the program there will be more and more learning and tools that you will need and will cost you more and more money. In the end, you have not learned any more about online business than when you began. You have just been scammed.

The façade

How about those that begin with the promise that you will make enough money from the very beginning so you can be able to pay for the program as you go. They then sell you into thousands of dollars of debt on a couple of interest free credit cards which are available to anybody with fair credit. They get you to sign “legal” documents by which they will get to keep your money if you decided to dispute any charges they make. (And they get away with it, too.) They will then begin to have people call you to give you directions in where to look for training and share a list of things for you to look up and study. This will go on for several weeks. (The things they share are readily available on the internet and can be found with a quick search on google or bing or any other search engine). But, you have paid hundreds of dollars for this “free” information. They will then try to upgrade you with another credit card and get more money from you. When it is all said and done, the only thing you have more of is the knowledge of whom not to trust. The thing you have less of is your hard-earned money.

The funnel

One of the sneakiest of home business scams is the one that hooks you with a cheap introductory price. It may be $37, or maybe $27, and some have gone as low as $17. What they are trying to do is get you committed by giving your credit card number and spending a little money. Many even say you can start to make money right away. What they do not tell you is that to make the kind of money you really want to make you will need to upgrade with ad-on features to your site or store. These ad-ons keep multiplying until once again you will find yourself into the hundreds or thousands of dollars.

The only ones that these types of online businesses are good for are the people who are selling them. For them it is a great business. For the people they take advantage of, it is very discouraging and sometimes financially crippling.

What you need to know

Things that you should know in searching home based business opportunities are some of the following.

  • Never make a decision in a hurry. If the seller can not wait, then there are plenty who can. You do not need to be in a hurry to spend your hard-earned money. You need to have some clear idea of what you will be purchasing.
  • Never purchase without knowing how much the end product will cost, at least within a given amount.
  • You need to know specifically what you will receive for your money.
  • What kind of support is available for the product you are buying.
  • Can you cancel or withdraw from the program.
  • Is there a money back guarantee.
  • Do you have individuals that you can contact and ask their opinion of the program.
  • How many people are using the program, are they making money?
  • How long does it take to start making money with the program?

Feel free to add other questions to this list.

My recommendation

I personally have tried five different types of online business opportunities. I have had limited success in a few and a total catastrophe in one. But I finally found one that from the beginning was forthright and honest in its presentation. I was amazed beyond belief to find such support and a library of lessons which deals with any and every phase of online business opportunities. It makes no grand promises but it does provide lessons, podcasts, webinars and 24 hour support like no other online entity. In less that six months I had learned more than over three years of learning I had done on my own. I have likened this program to getting a college degree in online business opportunities.

It begins with foundational things that must be in place before any business on the internet can realistically succeed. There are no “make money fast” schemes, but real business practice fundamentals applied on a daily and consistent basis. You can attain the tools by which you can succeed and be profitable in any business model that you might choose on the internet. If you apply the lessons and principles taught you will succeed. The level of success will be totally up to you.

The program that I recommend is Wealthy Affiliates. I mentioned above how it has a wealth of learning materials and support. They also provide free websites and free website hosting up to 50 domains. The cost for all of these tools and lessons and support is set at $49 a month. I’ll not go into all the tools and lessons and support they provide, but suffice it to say that to get the same things apart from Wealthy Affiliates would cost you hundreds of dollars a month, not to mention over the years.

You might think that means I pay almost $600 a year. How much would it cost you to pay a hosting service for 25 domains? Between $250 and $500. You have almost made your money back. How about a good keyword search engine? It’s free with Wealthy Affiliate. How about lessons on building your websites and promoting your business through many different avenues and social media? Thousands of dollars. They are all yours for the monthly price of $49. Pay it yearly and save almost $200 off of that.

But, even better, do a trial run for “FREE”. Yes, “FREE”. You do not need to register a credit card. Just register your email. Then get access to ten free lessons on building your online business. Get two free websites, which you name, and build them with the knowledge you gain from your lessons. Even access the support and interaction of the whole family of Wealthy Affiliates for seven days. If you like what you see then you can sign up for the Premium Membership in which you get access to all the tools and support at Wealthy Affiliate. If for some reason you do not wish to join the Premium Membership that’s OK. Just remain a “FREE MEMBER” and continue to use and build your two free websites. They are yours for as long as you want them.

I hope this has been helpful to you in making your decision about starting an online business. I have shared with you what I think is the best online business opportunity. I hope that you will try the FREE MEMBERSHIP to see if it is the best tool for you.

May God bless you and prosper you in your online business.
