Honestly, Does The Truth Matter? Let’s Ask James

The Truth has taken a beating and come out bleeding in the ridiculous collusion accusations, next in the 737 Max and today the beginnings of distraction by the media toward the dismissal in the Jessie Smollett case.  The questions here with respect to men and their politics run to what sort of world and country we want to leave to our children and grandchildren?

James was the leader of the church in Jerusalem in the early years of the body of Christ.  James was among those who saw his brother, Jesus, the Christ (Greek for messiah) alive after the entire city saw him dead.

James wrote a short and undeniably rich book to the 12 Tribes Scattered.  James 1: 1:

“James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations:

Greetings.”

The fact that there are but five chapters in this book have made it what I call the “shoddy shortcut” inasmuch as the misreading or rather poor comprehension and ability to synthesize (gather information from what is read) have made this so.

But even then ignoring the verses about the corruption of your gold and failings in helping those in need because we now know, as opposed to what Jesus commanded, that “poor choices” is what really happened.  We are so much smarter than Jesus now.

But they do seize on chapter 2 in order to continue to espouse their worthless religion:

“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

[NOTE:  James is not talking about the law i.e. 10 Commandments here]

18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”

Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless[d]? 21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,”[e]and he was called God’s friend. 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.

25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.” (NIV)  

A portion often misused by the LOST who claim the ten commandments are the way to God 2: 18:

“Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”  (NIV)

Let’s note, “even the demons believe that and shudder.”  Demons are fallen angels and have witnessed God’s glory and been judged with their leader.  They are condemned already to an eternity in torment and without redemptive opportunity in Jesus through grace by faith so they shudder.

I like the wording in this older version of the NIV James 2: 18:

“But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”  Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.”

This usually comes up not from those involved in relief to the poor, but those misusing these verses to justify salvation by works of the law.  But James did not say I will show you my faith by what I shalt not.

Briefly, God was not preaching to you Gentiles when he said, “Do not eat from the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil.”  Nor when he told Noah to build the Ark.  Not when he made the promise to Abraham that his offspring would inherit the land now called Israel, nor when he gave the law to Israel through Moses.  Not until he sent Peter to Cornelius.  Then Jesus ordained Paul (Acts 9: 15) as his instrument to reveal his name to Gentiles, their rulers and the people of Israel.  Judah in the vast majority rejected Jesus as was prophesied.  In 70 A.D. God made his intent for the law and the temple perfectly clear as Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24.

Paul confirmed this to his chosen protege’ Timothy in I Timothy 1: 5-7:

“The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.Some have departed from these and have turned to meaningless talk.They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.”  (NIV)

TEACHERS OF THE LAW DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT.

The Love You Had At First

Revelation 2: 1-7:

To the Church in Ephesus

“To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:

These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lamp stands. I know your deeds,your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lamp stand from its place. But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. (NIV)

Radio Preacher with Scottish Accent, unsure of his denominational lineage, as it were said:

“Talk of this second coming and there is a looaut [lot] of nonsense out there about this.  He went on to complain that this ridiculous story leads to the scoffers asking, so where is this coming?”

My prayerful and studied opinion is that any system which forms its theology from the four gospels is off track per Jesus’ own words.  Go HERE:  Rightly Dividing

Calvin misread Matthew 24 “… elect …” as Gentile believers “predestined.”  While logically the Lord Almighty who can tell the end from the beginning assuredly knows history in advance there is still clear issue of free will seen in Jesus’ instruction to those Jews:

“If you want to be my disciples you must, “deny yourself” “pick up your cross” and “come to me.”   … deny, lift … come. …

No not a Weslyan either.  Finding for myself that a follower of Jesus is unconcerned about what anyone before had to say (The peanut gallery) as per Jesus’ clear statement in John 16: 12-14:

“I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.” (NIV)

The world watched me boldly proclaim and walk forth as the chains fell off.  When I was done revealing the Lord’s glory, being persecuted as the prophets who came before me, jumping for joy, I focused my attention exclusively where the Lord states in his word it should be:

2 Peter 1:  19-21:

“We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable,and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (NIV)

The 30% of your Bible, both the old and the new testaments that involves prophetic predictions and their fulfillment s.  Like this “looaut [lot] of nawnsense ouut here (Sarcasm is one of my gifts):

I Thessalonians 4:  13-18:

“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.” (NIV)

Right there in verse 17, a few languages away is the Latin Word Rapture identical in meaning to the greek word HARPOZO i.e “caught up to meet the Lord in the air” Accord. Jesus in John 11: 25, 26:

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” (NIV)

I am surprised as usual that the seminaried don’t believe the scriptures like a little child.  That’s the commandment of Christ, not all this repenting and obeyeedeeance to Moses.  Jesus in Mark 1 told Jews under law to repent (mistranslation) (DO PENANCE bad boy … write me a check … say your hail yeah that girl, with all the other children) where Jesus told Jews in Israel to change their minds (about 1500 years of religion) and “believe” the good news.  

I John 3: 1-3: 

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.”  (NIV)

I John 1: 5-7:

“This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”  (NIV)

Christ’s command Matthew 24:

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

42 “Therefore keep watch … .”  (NIV)

That “looaut [lot] of nawnsense ouut here” is what the Lord of Lords and the King of kings told you to do.  So, Keep Watch.

Boeing And The FAA Are Not Trustworthy,737 Max 8 and 9 are not airworthy. Computers don’t make mistakes … don’t make mistakes … don’t make mistakes …

The old joke went:  Over the intercom came the pilot’s greeting, “Good afternoon welcome to wig wag airlines flight 00.  We would like you to know this airplane is being flown completely on autopilot by our new computer system.  But please rest assured because computers never make mistakes … never make mistakes … never make mistakes … ” 

Heard this in Junior High in the 1970’s.  Boeing has tried it.

It is clear now to the entire world Boeing, it’s CEO, the FAA and the several airlines are not trustworthy.  I am a former Boeing Engineer (conveniently blacklisted in 2001) and this is war.  All is fair in love and war as they say.  Negligence and reckless disregard for the lives of crews, passengers and others is the Boeing position along with its Government Division the FAA.  Have the layoffs started yet?

Many pilots were persistently reporting the problems with the 737 Max automated system, between the October 2018 Indonesian crash (189 dead) and the Ethiopian Airlines crash, March 2019 (157 dead).  Ralph Nader’s Grand Niece, Samya Stumo, among the Ethiopian disaster deceased.  Let’s see, will Ralph Nader let this slide?

Boeing, the FAA and airlines, more concerned about the bottom line [Boeing will now lose 5 Billion Dollars, as estimated] for their hard headed refusal to accept reality and its failures to provide training on the radically new and poorly executed computer flight correction system that is well known, as reported to override the pilots’ ability to safely fly their aircraft.

Pilots already have their hands full without having to play “Pac Man” with their own aircraft or die 3/110ths of a second before their passengers.  Boeing and the FAA with primary responsibility for safety were fully aware there was a problem long in advance of this disaster.  I for one am having a very hard time feeling sorry for them.  Gross negligence is the only reasonable verdict here.

Until two days ago Boeing and the FAA were defending the airworthiness of the 737 Max 8 and finally the Aviation Administrators of the world put our criminally negligent aircraft manufacturer and their government division the FAA in position to finally opt for safety.   If killing 346 people can be seen as providing any safety at all.  Who else does not feel sorry for them?

These death traps should be required after refitting to start the certification process all over again with independent oversight of the FAA itself involved.  Go HERE for more on this despicable display of modern corporate neglect and cold hearted disregard for human life.  I applaud the decision to send the black box to France where Boeing’s own FAA has already been utterly discredited, can play second fiddle as their conduct deserves.

737 MAX 8 Grounded — Ralph Nader’s Great Niece Killed In Ethiopia Crash

My forthcoming, prior, planned book entitled ironically, “Unsafe At Any Altitude” as I told Boeing’s CEO (probably not for long) I am writing.  I had no idea until about an hour ago when I ran across this video on you tube that Ralph Nader’s Great Niece was among those killed in the second 737 MAX 8 crash in Ethiopia.

My sincerest condolences, thoughts and prayers to all of the victims of what appears to be the exact irresponsibility I reported in the my prior posts of this week.  Originally the book was to be an expose’ on failure of senior engineers to accept responsibility and the incompetence derivative of their training system.

Three generations of my family were Boeing insiders involved in numerous defense, strategic, missile targeting, space, structures and propulsion programs.  Again the irony and complete surprise in the fact my title “Unsafe at Any Altitude” being derivative of Mr. Nader’s “Unsafe at any Speed” and the tragic death of his sister’s grand daughter are further explained in the accompanying video by Mr. Nader himself.

RALPH NADER Video concerning the tragic, and preventable crash and the loss to his family, as well many other families:

 

Such a tragic situation where 157 and then 189 lives have been cut short on almost identical circumstances and with pilots warning Boeing and its government commercial aircraft division, the FAA.  They represent your interests equally as the FDA assures safe drugs, right?

Boeing 737 Max …And Door Skin Horror

Prior to the true narrative of Boeing Contractor, Lead abuse, I shared with you a few days ago, there was the Horror (Dooror Horror) also provided by Crabby Sparky the EE, cross trained as an aircraft structures engineer.

Airplanes are essentially pressure vessels like an air compressor tank with wings.  The tank in this case is held together, and in shape, by the aircraft structure.  The frames and stringers all attached substantially to the skins.

The massive moments, compressive stress, tensile stress and shear stress involved in lifting hundreds of thousands of pounds off the ground on the wings are fearsome to understand.  Shear is driven into the skins, requiring they be well attached to the structure and also nice and smooth.  Meaning no gouges, drill runs, hole tear outs or other sharp features to concentrate stress.

Ground Air Ground (GAG cycles) is a term referring to the take off and climb to altitude (usually 35,000 feet give or take) requiring pressurization of air cabins to 18 psi (Japanese do 20 psi for passenger ear comfort) and then a return at ground level to 1 atmosphere.

Sheets used in aircraft when I was at Boeing were .063 in. thick.  It was a BAC and drawing requirement to maintain 2/3 (if I recall) of that thickness to avoid hard spots (too much stress over the reduced cross section).  Further the edges of skins are required to be flat, smooth and perpendicular to the lower and upper faces of the skins.  I learned all of this in engineering school.  EE don’t.  This was at that time clearly all spelled out in BAC5300 if I recall.  Pretty sure that’s the number.

As an aside, in Kansas several years ago, the Professional Engineering Exams were updated because Mechanical Engineers way out performed the Civil, Electrical Chemical etc., due to the broad and in depth curriculum involved in the BSME pursuit.  The only degree harder to attain is Medicine which essentially covers the BSME curriculum with Organic chemistry and the biology of life and organs.

Dick Nott, my supervisor, told me, and I quote:  “Just do what they tell you until you get your stamp.”  (great training instructions, Dick, especially where none of the leads accepted responsibility) So I went, observed, examined, analysed, wrote dispositions the way I was told, and presented them for approval and a stamp from the certified.  The EE was certified.  Material Review Board (MRB) Certification required for continuing as an aircraft engineer in Liaison or going to one of the Airlines.  The FAA, here, before I explain the horror should, as the flying public also, should, understand the fact that Crabby Sparky had what you claim as certification, to theoretically provide airworthiness, while I did not.  Crabby decided what is airworthy.  You should all be afraid.

The door:  Crabby EE Sparky and I went down to look at a door for the 747 Jetliner.  The doors, are pressure rated structure, had an outer skin and an inner skin with a port for the door mechanism.  The tag from the computer was sent for irregular skin edges (supposed to be smooth and perpendicular to the skin surfaces (think square edge) as I learned at KU).  These had hand ground facets at various angles to include point transitions between these facets.  These edges looked like a diamond cutter’s work along the inner skin port edge.  OMG!

I said:  “These are not good, we can’t accept this.” 

Crabby Sparky:  “No, these are OK.”

I said:  “Aren’t they supposed to be perpendicular and smooth?  Look there are sharp spots in the edge.”

Crabby Sparky:  “These are OK, we buy them like this all the time.”

I said:  “Are you sure these are alright?”

Crabby Sparky:  “Yes, I’ll help you write it up.”

So I wrote it up the way he told me as per my instructions from Supervisor Dick Nott and Sparky signed off on the disposition.

The next morning I found the tag sent back with a note from Dan (very good engineer, mechanical) saying:  “Mr. Queen when I looked at this door they were knife edged.”  They were.  Just like I learned in e school and tried to tell Sparky.

Now, thanks to Dan, no knife edged door skins ever left BWAG with my name on the tag.

One wonders how many doors did leave knife edged since Sparky had told me “We (who else did he train?) buy them like this all the time.”

Knife edged doors such as the ones Sparky told me were alright would produce cracking given enough GAG cycles.  Once a crack opens it propagates a bit with every pressurization and then depressurization, then again and again.  Once the crack reaches maturity the result is catastrophic failure.  Sudden decompression (@ 18psi) and ejection of people (keep your seat belt fastened) from the cabin out into the wild blue yonder as happened during Aloha Airlines Flight 243 several years back.  GO HERE for the story on Wikipedia.  Tomorrow I will be back to the gospel.  Coming later this week:  “Mad 737 Max Beyond Pressure Dome.”  Yes a play on Mel Gibson, Mad Max Beyond Thunder Dome.
