OUR GOAL IS YOUR 100% SECURITY. FOLLOW THE 4 STEPS BELOW AND GUARANTEE IT.
Sounds lofty doesn't it? Read the example below and decide for yourself:
You are riding on a crowded train through the mountains when a fight breaks out. Your situational awareness directs you to relocate to the other end of the passenger car and find some limited cover. You also create distance between you and the threat which always favors the trained. As the train security guard tries to break it up, the scrappy girl on top draws her revolver and shoots him. You act without hesitation and draw your Glock and demand from behind cover "DROP YOUR GUN OR I'LL SHOOT YOU DEAD". She surrenders her gun and is detained by the crowd. The passengers all applaud your bravery and thank you for saving the day. The train then skips the rail and goes over a cliff, killing you and all the passengers.
So... if you had trained harder could you have prevented this? Probably not.
Lesson 1.) 100% HUMAN CONTROL IS AN ILLUSION.
Lesson 2.) WE TRAIN TO EXCEL IN SAFETY, FUN, COMPETITION, SPORT, AND TO MINIMIZE RISK IN SELF DEFENSE SITUATIONS.
Lesson 3.) 100% SECURITY IS POSSIBLE AND FREE. BUT, IT REQUIRES OBJECTIVELY LOOKING AT THE FACTS WITHOUT PRETENSE:
FACT- Neither me, you, your wife, or anyone else knows everything (even though she does know more than both of us).
FACT- 100% security requires someone who knows everything.
FACT- Knowing everything on the train above, a better course of action would be throwing all the passengers off the train even if you break a few arms and legs, thereby saving their lives before the train goes off the cliff. Imagine how strange this action would have seemed to other passengers.
Now instead imagine, still knowing everything, you decide to stay on the train and break up the fight. The passengers think you are great right up until they are all dead as the train crashes. This would be ridiculous knowing what you know.
*Maybe the reason we see God, life, and the events on this earth as cruel and unfair is becuase we can't see the whole story, as He does. We're worried about the comfort and safety on the train, and God's busy getting us off the train before it goes off the rails. Satan is busy helping us remodel the train and install big screen TVs and serve better food on it, so we don't notice we need to get off.
FACT- if there is no God, 100% security is not possible, so don't waste your time looking for it. See train example.
FACT- It requires huge faith to believe there is not a God or creator. Example- If you pour out a 100 piece Star Wars (TM) lego set on the floor, no matter how many millions or billions of years it sits there, it will not turn into the Millenium Falcon (TM) even though all the parts are right there. It won't happen with humans either, the parts (legos) are a lot more complicated. Either you believe there is an eternal premoidial slime (evolution), two big eternal rocks (Big Bang), or you can believe there is an eternal creator who designed you with purpose. Don't let adding a few hundred million years to a ridiculous theory make it seem any more real. Especially since the "scientist" selling it has lived less than 100 years. Even being an Atheist requires faith in something.
Lesson 4.) 100% SECURITY IS SIMPLE AND ETERNAL. HIS NAME IS JESUS.
- You are valuable simply because God lovingly created you in your mother's womb for His great pleasure, not because of what you do.
- He loves you just as you are and wants you to accept the free gift of 100% eternal security. Stop what you are doing and just ask God -
"Lord I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that you sent your son Jesus to die for my sins, and afterwards raised Him from death to rule and reign in heaven at your right hand. I ask you to forgive me for my mistakes and I accept the gift of salvation that Jesus bought for me with His blood. Please be Lord of my life and change me forever to walk in your ways and show your love and compassion to others by Your Sprirt."
Be real with God, if you are not ready, don't do nothing, but instead ask "Lord help me in my unbelief, if you are real, show me the truth." God is all about relationship with you. I first read through the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible and it's pretty straight forward to start with. Man loves to complicate things while God loves to simplify. Jesus summed up the whole old testament of the bible with : Love the Lord God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.
- The only thing that prevents us from being saved is our pride and unwillingness to ask for help from God. We like to be in charge of our own destiny (as we ride on the train towards the crash we can't control or stop). We love spending our time fixing up our train car so it looks so good, is very comfortable, and has good food. Who has time for God?
TIP- Although we all die one day, there is huge protection and healing here and now for our families, marriages, health, jobs, and more available if we are faithful in asking God daily for help in prayer. See Matthew Ch. 6, verse 9-15. It's daily because God wants a relationship with us as we get to know Him. We know that security and defensive training is valuable, but prayer is one of the most valuable tools in your tool bag. If it's not in there, you are not ready for anything.
