Circuit Rider's Range

Circuit Rider's Range


For better or worse, this is the weather we are
experiencing at the present time as we celebrate
in the great metropolis of Belsano, Pennsylvania!

Present home of Clayton D. Harriger who grew
up in the Clarion, Pennsylvania area and graduated
from Clarion Senior High School -- also attended what
years ago was known as Clarion State Teachers College.

Celebrating Circuit Rider's Range 16th Anniversary as of March 28, 2014
(Circuit Rider's Range was first launched on March 28, 1998 at Angelfire.com)

Celebrating 7th Anniversary of Musings of a Maverick BLOG as of January 30, 2014

W A R N I N G!
Certain areas of Circuit Rider's Range contain graphic images of the mutilation and murder of unborn children. This is not suitable viewing for young children or youth. Although honesty dictates that the little tykes are exposed to more graphic blood & guts violence produced by the Hollywood, TV, and gaming industries than what would be very rarely, if ever, viewed by them here!

The comments on this web site concerning the abortion issue are rooted in Bible based revelation on human life and its Divine purpose (See Jeremiah 1:4,5, Psalm 139, and Ephesians 1:3-5) and so stated by the owner of the web site, Clayton D. Harriger.

Comments relative to this issue of abortion do not reflect the official position of the United Methodist Church, nor of the Western PA Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church where Clayton D. Harriger is an ordained elder in full connection and where his ministerial credentials are on record.

The stated "green light" position of the United Methodist Church on abortion is found in its Book of Discipline in the section on Social Principles.


See a kind of follow up and comment or two about the above at A Quick Look At the United States' Massacre Tally! -- scroll down a bit until you come across mention of a United Methodist Bishop and the tally since he became a bishop! In fact, this has been updated to include all other active United Methodist bishops and the massacre tally dating from the year they became bishops. Included also is a copy of a personal letter sent to each of the bishops on an ongoing basis. Full explanation about all this and who all are receiving letters is at that area. BTW, whom all have you contacted lately about the ethical, moral, and spiritual whirlpool that is sucking this republic down to disaster?

Then go to Tell me why that bumblebee is in a place like this!

to high adventure on Circuit Rider's Range where all magazine, newspaper, and TV news editors must check their red pencils and scissors at the door before entering! For those of us who submit letters to editors, this borders on something akin to sweet revenge -- hee, hee, hee

NOTE:See for yourself why editors have to check their red pencils and scissors before entering Circuit Rider's Range -- the evidence is at

Letters to Editor, The Tribune-Democrat, Johnstown PA
-- somewhere along the way we seem to have parted "company!"


CDH is getting quite a list of unpublished letters at the Tribune-Democrat, but fortunately other newspapers in the area will still print letters sent to the editor. Sometime back, however, I was asked to be "Guest Editor" at the Tribune-Democrat in Johnstown PA. This was an enjoyable experience and will be detailed a bit on the page where all the unpublished letters reside -- the link above titled, "Letters to Editor...."

As you know, we entered the NEW MILLENIUM as of January 1, 2001 and now find ourselves moving into the second decade of the 21st Century! What are your plans for the future ahead of you and is Jesus Christ, Who is The Way, The Truth, and The Life the prominent and dominant Person in those plans? If not, why not? You might want to check out How to Become a Christian -- yes, it IS possible for a person such as you to have peace, confidence, and a rock solid hope for the future in these days in which the world finds itself in a chaotic and violent state of affairs!

Something else to consider on the subject of life and eternal destiny is this:

If You Die and Go to Hell, Who Cares?

This week's special

What are some of the biggest things you have ever thought about?
And has God been somehow a part of those big things considered?
Want to try something interesting by way of a big experience?
Slip over to Getting a Proper Perspective on Life!

The United States has at times, and continues to be compared
to the ancient Roman Empire -- while certain parallels can be drawn,
a more superior comparison can be made historically -- go to
Comparing the United States to the Ancient Roman Empire?
A Much Better Comparison Is to the Ancient Israelite Kingdom of Judah!

On June 9, 2014, I lost $950,000!
Details given at my blog as to how this happened!
Still I am not so bad off -- reason is given at
Reminders When Mansion Shopping!

It sparks some of the most heated debate ever and some of us
who are considered radical in our faith contribute to that conflict!
Is Jesus Christ the ONLY way of salvation, hope, and entrance to Heaven?
Among theologians, seminary professors, church leaders, and pastors there is conflict -
it is wise to review the issue at The Way -- The Truth -- The Life!

There are those who are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
A few of us, due to personal acquaintaince with Him, believe Him to be
God revealed in human form 2,000 years ago and He is very real at the
present time -- suppose a "committee" was set up to confront Him due to
the fact that He is a very controversial individual Who often caused
division and conflict! How might the session go in such a confrontation?
Listen in on Jesus Meets the "Committee!"

The Creator of this mighty universe has been most generous --
many are the gifts He has made available to us humans --
just one thing wrong -- we are in the habit of trashing them!
see details at Trashing Sacred Gifts -- 21st Century Style!

2013 was quite a year with lots happening all over the world --
it figures that an old geezer would have something to say about it!
Details at Reflections on 2013 by An Old Geezer!

There are people who claim they do things based on conscience --
this can be a very radical thing, depending on the issue at hand!
Once in a blue moon it is possible that you can't have a conscience!
See details at I Am Not Permitted to Have a Conscience!

Most people of all ages are familiar with the fact that in baseball you have
three strikes when you are up to bat -- if you miss the ball on each strike
then you are counted out by the umpire standing behind the plate! With that comparison
consider the tragedy of a president having stuck out in his responsibility as a leader
and now leading our republic toward certain judgment from a holy God! See why at
He Is Out on Three Strikes and We Are Headed for Certain Disaster!

World leaders and other persons of great influence
are in for the greatest surprise of their lives one
of these days, which may be closer than we want to admit!
See details at Message to World Leaders and Others
Who Have Wealth, Power, and Influence: You Cannot Hide and You Cannot Win!

The times of compromise have been upon us for quite a while!
Christians are under constant pressure to give in and not
"rock the boat" in a pluralistic culture such as the U.S!
Details at Living in an Age of Compromise!

We are crossing over the threshold of our 40th year --
it is not an anniversary for which to be proud nor to celebrate!
See why at We Are Crossing Over the Threshold of Our 40th Year...
What Lies Ahead?

Have you heard the term, "fiscal cliff," lately?
That is not the cliff to be worried about --
the real crisis is going over the moral cliff!
Details at The Fiscal Cliff Is Not the Critical Issue --
It Is the Moral Cliff That Is!

Election 2012 is now over and done --
Some are very disappointed and others greatly rejoicing in outcome --
But there is great news regarding the ugly and corrupt world of politics --
God has something wonderful planned for the future -- hang on for a while!
See Good News! A Day Coming in Which All Politicians
Will Be Removed from Office!

There are questions that many have concerning the death experience...
How about this one? A Speculative Question:
Will they be able to see the ones they conspired to mutilate and murder?

There is a detailed experience of one man and what he saw after his death!

It's about the most assumed experience ever!
Didn't you know? Assuming oneself to be a Christian!
Just WHAT does one do to become a Christian?
Yes, something is required by way of action....
See what at How to Become a Christian
Remember, Christians are born, not people who have a "make-over!"

May 31, 1889 -- the South Fork Dam above Johnstown PA failed after very heavy
rains hit the area -- the resulting flood caused the loss of over 2,200 lives.
You can see pictures of the remains of the dam in comments under the title
Judgment Is Like An Impending Dam Break...
A Warning Is Sounded, But Is Anybody Listening?

The nails continue to be driven at a furious pace --
Will 2013 be the year the final nail is driven for the United States?
That's not a hammer in your hand is it, or are you following
the example of our president, members of the U. S. Congress and
a very, very large number of United States citizens?
Take a look at Driving the Final Nails!

Most of what you see here and at the blog are
issues of a highly controversial nature and some visitors
may find their blood pressure rising at a rapid rate!
But there is an area where things are very, very different --
it may even cause the corners of your mouth to form a
smile rather than a frown -- why not take a trip over to
Circuit Rider's Humor Hut!

You don't like what is going on in government?
Have you ever written to the president? Why not? How about doing it today?
Address: The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC 20500

NOTE: You can also type in your zip code in the Write to Congress banner just
below and get the president's email address plus White House web site address, etc.

  

See what is going out to President Obama -- this is sent on a
regular basis to President Obama just as it was with President Bush --
travel over to Letter to President B. Hussein Obama NOTE: below the letter to the president is a letter to Rahm Emanuel, the Chief of Staff at the White House! NOTE: Rahm Emanuel is no longer Chief of Staff, having left and entered the Chicago cesspool of politics! But the letter as sent to him originally is still here. William Daley, of infamous Chicago politics, later was chosen by Obama to be Chief of Staff. Letters went to him as well as worded in the one to Rahm Emanuel. Then the Chief of Staff was Jack Lew, and now we have Denis McDonough -- so he will get a letter occasionally. Chief of Staff thing is like musical chairs, is it not?

See what was sent out to former President Bush on a
regular basis during his years in office. Hop on over to
Mr. President, We Need to Get Our Own House in Order First!

Here Are Your Options for Touring
Circuit Rider's Range

CR has set up an area where you can check on recent happenings in our nation and world which determine whether or not we are Building Walls with Untempered OR Tempered Mortar! -- you can come back here or go elsewhere on the Range after checking those items out. Just below are some newer additions to the Range and below those are the tour options -- enjoy!

It started in 2005, then repeated in 2006 and again in 2008 -- all W. PA Annual Conference pastors of the United Methodist Church were required to be at the ordination service which was held on Father's Day each of those years -- the preachers got to spend Father's Day with their congregations and their families in 2007, but alas! Back to the same old fiasco in 2008! Two letters were sent to the bishop during the first two years -- none sent during 2008, but comments were made at my blog under the title, Father's Day 2008 Among W. PA United Methodists -- A Real Touch of Irony! An earlier blog was posted in May under the title, They Were in Their Pulpits on Mother's Day, But Don't Expect Them to Be There on Father's Day! Note: if you go to these, use reverse feature on your browser to return here.

On this issue of W. PA United Methodist pastors being absent from their churches on Father's Day, the original letters plus comments are at Can You Imagine? A Few Hundred United Methodist Pastors Absent from Their Churches on Father's Day -- June 19, 2005! Question -- does anyone out there know of another United Methodist annual conference and any other bishop who would pull a stunt like this?

Meanwhile.... The Sodomite/Lesbian Juggernaut Continues to Roll! - NOTE: this is a collection of summaries and links as to the progress the S/L cartel is making all around the world -- you have to see it to believe it -- constant updating each week on this one! And now we have added

Sodomite/Lesbian Juggernaut Archives!


"Wars and rumors of wars!"

Zealous news media people made sure they kept us informed of numbers of military casualties in the "war" with Iraq and they continue to give special attention to the casualties of our present "occupation" in Iraq but notice that they haven't posted the toll of "casualties" within the "land of the free and home of the brave" from the moment the conflict got under way on March 19, 2003!

Hey! Look at the Number
of Unborn Children Brutally
Mutilated & Murdered in USA

since the USA started "liberating" Iraq
from the brutality of Saddam Hussein!

March 19 2003


Watch this for about 60 to 90 seconds
and see what happens!

For a detailed follow-up, go to The Gaping Hole in Casualty Reporting!
ALSO see Letter to News Media People -- Questions About the Foci of Their Reporting, etc! -- return links are at bottom of the page to bring you here or to other locations on the Range.



We continue to be bogged down just a tad in Iraq and a lot of killing continues to take place -- seems like this suicide bomber thing is popular and will always be as long as Islamic clerics do their "teaching" and exert great influence on the young in certain Islamic cultures -- but there are also Islamic terrorists in many different places, Iran going nuclear, North Korea, the Middle East "road map to peace," and some "bogged down" places in the world such as Afghanistan & Bosnia which are a few of the "thorns" in the sides of the U.S. and its leadership at the present time -- are we really prepared to do battle over the long haul? Things are not going well on the home front for a number of reasons. Take a look at:


The White House was bought for at least 650 million dollars or more on 08-11-02!
The Obama Dynasty took control of the U.S.A. in Washington DC on January 20, 2009!

Some United Methodist Church Related Stuff!

T A R G E T: The United Methodist Church General Conference
D A T E: Dates in 2016 TBA
P L A C E:TBA

General Conference 2012 has passed. Many things happened which were good as delegates "held the line" on the present UMC position regarding sodomy and lesbianism. BUT all those groups pushing the sodomite/lesbian agenda in our culture will be zealously preparing for GC 2016. In addition to a number of groups pushing the "agenda" to accept sodomy and lesbianism as morally legitimate we have a cluster of retired United Methodist bishops which is urging the deletion of that troubling phrase in the United Methodist Book of Discipline which states that homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching! GC 2012 was encouraging in one very important manner - the increase in number of delegates from the African churches -- these people actually believe the Bible, something that is becoming increasingly foreign in the U.S. churches! The African folk believe what God says about the abomination of sodomy and are not afraid to express that in GC settings, and as the African churches expand over the next few years, so will their representation at future General Conferences -- certainly that is very good news!

Finally, About That Bumblebee!

Oh yes, about that BUMBLEBEE up at the top -- years ago I heard that the theory of aerodynamics states that according to the bulk and weight of its body in proportion to its wingspan, the bumblebee cannot fly, but the bumblebee being ignorant of this theory goes ahead and flies anyway!! A lesson I took to heart -- there are any number of so called "scholars" (???) and "theologians" (?) who speculate and theorize that the Bible is not really trustworthy, the first 11 chapters of Genesis are mainly myth and fairy tale stuff, miracles reported didn't really happen, Jesus wasn't born of a virgin, His supposed "atonement" is not really significant, likely He didn't rise from the dead after crucifixion, and He most certainly is not going to return to this earth in what is commonly referred to as His "Second Coming," adnauseam!

I know this because I did a number of research papers on some of this bunch years ago -- while I am not totally ignorant of their theories, speculations etc, I have chosen to believe the Bible and the way it tells it anyhow! Thank you Mr. Bumblebee for a lesson that has helped me over many years!

Oooh, now I'll remember this every time I see a bumblebee --
[Now take me back up to that fascinating critter!]

And to you who are visiting my range, may God's best be your daily portion in the place where He has located you to represent His Son, Jesus Christ, as the one and only absolute solution to every human need and problem. His death on the cross and victorious resurrection prove beyond all doubt that the perfect remedy for our needs is now available!

Still contending for the faith (Jude 3,4)
CDH

In the meantime, don't forget....

Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, and they also who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
Revelation 1:7 (NKJV)

Furthermore, remember times have not changed all that much from days of old when God used a group of mavericks known as "prophets" ... the only thing they would change if they were resurrected and placed in our nation today would be the proper names and geographical locations!

"I have also spoken by the prophets, and have multiplied visions; I have given symbols through the witness of the prophets."
Hosea 12:10 (NKJV)

"You shall speak My words to them, whether they hear or whether they refuse, for they are rebellious. But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you." Now when I looked, there was a hand stretched out to me; and behold, a scroll of a book was in it. Then He spread it before me; and there was writing on the inside and on the outside, and written on it were lamentations and mourning and woe.

Ezekiel 1:7-10 (NKJV)

"Therefore you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not obey you. You shall also call to them, but they will not answer you. So you shall say to them,

'This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the LORD their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth."
Jeremiah 7:27, 28 (NKJV)
