Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5)

“The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it.  While, on the other hand, if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves”. (Samuel Adams: National  Center For Constitutional Studies)

  1. Alaska National Wildlife Refuge: News and considerations.
    Biden administration cancels remaining oil and gas leases in Alaska’s Arctic Refuge | AP News Whenever talking about oil leases in Alaska they always show pictures of the most beautiful part of the Refuge.  Oil is found on the north slope, which is basically a mud flat.  Drilling does not affect any of the indigenous animals, in fact they often congregate around oil pipelines because it is warmer there.  These press releases are totally dishonest, and designed to keep us poorer as a nation.  There will be no other result.  This is truly the difference between a Biden Administration and what was a Trump Administration.

            Here is how the drilling has affected the native animals.  They love to congregate around the pipelines in the winter because it is warmer there.
