Time for wants, views & needs of local to be paid attention to

To The Daily Sun,

Here are the reasons why I am running to be a selectman for the Town of Meredith.

1. I have no future interest in advancing in politics.

2. I want to eliminate the outside interests coming into our town with agendas affecting our town and voted on by some of the smallest vote count by the people who support that agenda.

3. I want to be available to listen to anyone who wants to talk about what their concerns are.

4. I want only positive, affordable growth for all the people going forward in time.

5. I dislike educated narrow-minded people who think their ideas are the only ones that will work for me and are reluctant to listen to other ideas.

6. It's my time in life to try to give tack to the community offering local life experiences and protest what we have now and in the future. I am worried by the growing lower moral values, and crime, etc., coming further north every year.

7. I am not a card-carrying Tea Party member. I believe in the U.S. Constitution as it was written and legally amended. I have conservative values, yet am very open-minded to positive ideas. I have voted int he past for the candidate I felt would do what was best for me and the community regardless of their political party.

8. The time has come that the wants, views, and needs of the locals whose families have been here for years, who were born here, have built their families here and will die here and will carry the largest amount for the cost going into the future be heard and represented for the people, by the people of Meredith.

I have a couple of sayings I would like to pass on to you.

1. Don't ask the question if you are not ready to hear the answer; you might not like it.

2. Keep your moth shut. Make thieves of your eyes and ears to what is going on around you it will surprise you.

3. K.I.S.S. = Keep it simple stupid.

David Lund Bennett Sr.

Most of us now that we cannot work our own way to heaven

To The Daily Sun,

This is in response to the latest ramblings from Cracraft and Veverka, who, sadly, are loveless atheists and would have us believe that they know more than any of the rest of us. And my only reason for responding to any of their nonsense at all is: 1. to try to correct the record, and 2. to provide some balance for those people who may still be searching, and genuinely interested in learning the truth as God, our Creator, would have us learn it. And isn't it interesting that you can always tell when someone thinks he is the smartest person in the room, because he has a worldview that doesn't hold him accountable for anything. I don't believe these unfortunate souls believe in God, primarily because to do so, they would have to admit that they are NOT the smartest ones in the room. They spend their lives competing with each other to be seen, acknowledged, and exalted by each other as the smartest among men, the rest of us mere mortals.

Most of the rest of us know better than to believe that we can work our own way to heaven. And of course, they don't believe in heaven at all. But if they did, they believe they are capable enough, and smart enough to figure out a way to work their own way there. To believe the "big bang theory" of creation; to believe that abortion and the killing of young babies still in their mother's womb is okay; to believe that it's okay for people of the same sex to engage in perverted, selfish, twisted and un-natural sexual acts with each other; to believe that when we die, that's all there is to it; to live a lifetime on this planet with no boundaries, no rules, no limitations on their behavior is to live with no joy, no hope, and ultimately, no real love for their fellow man.

At the time of Jesus Christ, there were many people, including His apostles and hundreds of disciples who were eyewitnesses to His death and burial after being crucified on a cross, and resurrection, and subsequent ascension back to heaven,. Most of those eye witnesses were captured and tortured, and then died horrible deaths because other men, powerful men of the day, who felt threatened by their witnessing, wanted them to change their story, to lie about what they had seen. If their witnessing had been a lie, if they had not actually seen what they said they saw, they would not have endured the physical pain and torture, and ultimate deaths they suffered. No man would voluntarily die for a lie! These local letter writers don't believe in God the Father, and Jesus the Son, and they don't want the rest of us to either. They have totally ignored the "Word of God," the Bible. Their letters make no meaningful reference to it at all.

Jesus was real. He was a real man, who had a job to do, and He willingly did it. He lived, and then He died the perfect sacrifice for the rest of us, so that we could cover our earthly and human sins with His blood, and become holy and acceptable to God the Father, the God of Creation, the God of the Bible, and to God the Son who still loves us, and who will love us until the very end. There is still time...
