Jerry || The Elder Statesman

My Dad is the driving force behind my love for photography. When I was a little girl he always had a camera in his hand. He was either videotaping me as I did gymnastics or taking pictures of my silly antics. Seeing him with a camera immediately enticed me to photograph things. He made sure I always had a camera. We have come a long way from the disposable cameras! I always “harass” him for breaking my all-time favorite Kodak camera some years ago. I just will not let him live that down! We always get a kick out of that story. 
My Dad was the first investor in Uplifted Photography. He allowed me to bounce ideas off of him and gave me great guidance! Without his love and support I am not sure Uplifted Photography would even exist. He even supports Hasan and I as a third shooter at large events, videographer, sometimes an assistant, and he is always an elder statesmen! We appreciate all that you do for us! 
Elder Statesman: an eminent senior member of a group or organization; especially a retired statesman who unofficially advises current leaders.

    When the truth opposes doctrinal positions, men reject the truth. If Scripture is contrary to long held denominational teaching most men either reject Scripture outright or explain it away. God's truth, found in the Bible, is the first casualty of denominational rules for faith and practice.

    God's Truth: 1 Corinthians 13:8-13 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; it there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away………13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love. (NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: Gifts of prophecy have not been done away with. Tongues have not ceased. Knowledge that is God's revelation to men has not been done away with. Faith, hope, love, tongues, prophecy, and special knowledge from God, these six abide with us today.

    God's Truth: Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.(NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: He who has believed is saved immediately. Water baptism has nothing to do with being saved. Besides that, Mark 16:16 should not be included the Bible away; because it is not included in some manuscripts. You really cannot trust God to give mankind an accurate translation of the Bible.

    God's Truth: Acts 10:25-26 When Peter entered, Cornelius met him, and fell at his feet and worshiped him. 26 But Peter raised him up, saying, "Stand up; I too am just a man."(NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: The apostle Peter should have permitted Cornelius to worship him; because the apostle Peter was the first Catholic pope. Cornelius should have kissed Peter's ring and feet. Cornelius was correct, he should have treated Peter with awe, reverence. adoration, and veneration. Peter was the first Holy Father on earth and deserved to be worshipped.

    God's Truth: Revelation 3:1-6 "To the angel of the church in Sardis write:……….5 He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life….(NASB)

    Opposite of God's Truth: Jesus was not talking to Christians. Christians are once saved always saved, there is no possibility of having their names erased from the book of life.

    The first casualty of God's truth is man's opinion.
