My Spiritual Walk

Sunday, March 31st, 2013 @ 1:22AM

My desire is to walk with God every day. My desire is to live His will for my life. My desire is to let go of my ego and let in His direction. My desire is to remember that all I do should glorify Him. My desire is to be a forgiving, non-judgmental person. My desire is to continually nourish my soul with His word. My desire is to stand up and brush myself off when I make mistakes and ask for forgiveness.

Janine,

Thanks for sharing your deep conviction to walk close to God every day and to live out His will for your life. I share those convictions aspiring to put Christ first in all aspects of my life and I love hearing those in positions like yourself express their faith.

I wish you all of God’s best in your life and career.

Sincerely,

Keith

I loved your interview with Walid Shoebat. Have you heard of Usama Dakdok? His website is thestraightway.org. He is an Egyptian-born pastor who has translated the Koran word for word.

Regarding your spiritual walk, When you say God do you mean the God of the Bible Jehovah, the One who sent His Son The Lord Jesus Christ to come down from heaven to take away our sins? I hope this is who you meant as today, the name God is generic, coviering all religions and even within Christianity (another Jesus: 2 Corinthians 11:4).

Janine, we should spread the word of unity when we are debating immigration reform. Republicans in Washington aren’t even asking the right questions and thus are not offering the right solutions. Herman Cain is 100% spot on when he said th GOP is shamelessly pandering to Hispanics and I would add, at the detriment of American unity.

Please allow me to share this message below in a speech I gave to the Rhode Island Republicans last month:

A Message of Unity

Mr. Chairman, fellow Republicans, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for the opportunity to speak tonight. It is indeed an honor.

I learned a few things while defending our 2nd Amendment this year, for example just how much we need to work on our messaging. Our opponents have chipped away at what we believe is the right course for America for a very long time. They’ve co-opted the media, hijacked public discourse and when a crisis like Newtown happens they exploit it to further advance their agenda while we’re on our heals playing defense. That’s got to change! Tonight I’d like to speak about another topic that is likewise important to all of us. Here too, we seem always to be caught flat footed and on defense as well ~ race in America.

You know those forms or applications we fill out for Social Security or other government agencies? There are these boxes you check off under “race” such as, Black/African American, Hawaiian Native, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Other Pacific Islander, Asian, White. And under “ethnicity”, Latino or Hispanic. I’m confused. I lived in Taiwan as a child. It’s an Island and it’s in the Pacific, so do I check Other Pacific Islander or Asian? and why is Asian not under ethnicity? Why not have a box that simply says American.

Why does racial or ethnic designation matter anyway? I married my wife because of the wonderful person that she is, not because of her race. The process of selecting one’s soulmate is simply more than skin deep. They don’t even have a box for my son; he’s just a terrific American teenager. I don’t view myself as being defined by my race, and I certainly do not view others in that regard. Do we not teach our children to never judge a book by its cover? Have we not elected a president who is a black-American ‘twice’ so are we not now living in a post-racial era or is this all just lip service we give about how “tolerant” we are? Was it not Dr. Martin Luther King who said that he had a dream that one day we would all be judged by the content of our character and not by the color of our skin?

Ladies and gentlemen, why then are we being segregated by bureaucracies that impact our lives so much. Even more importantly, why do we allow our government to do so? Sure, race relation in America is a delicate matter but I would argue that it is our complacency that has made it so. In fact it’s gotten to the point where if we speak about anything remotely race related, more often than not, we’re labeled “intolerant” or worse, “racist” ~ is it any wonder why we’re so divided?

Some may even wonder if I am proud of my ethnic origin. My answer will be an unequivocal yes, although not in the way they may think. I am proud of the five thousand year culture of my Chinese ancestry that has contributed so richly to the world and to the unique melting pot and wonderful mosaic that is the exceptional American culture. I believe that it is the contributions of immigrants from across the planet that has made the United States a truly blessed nation and not the politically correct celebration of “diversity” of ethnic groups that choose not to assimilate into American culture. And it is for this reason I don’t view myself so much as a Chinese-American as I am simply an American and damned proud of it!

I remember with fondness when my family lived in West Africa in the 60s. We had lots of friends while living in Freetown, the capitol city of Sierra Leone. I went to the local international school. My friends were multi-racial and were from all over the world. Some of my best friends included the children of Lebanese and Israeli merchants. I had friends from the American, Russian, British, French, Italian, Nigerian, Liberian and German missions as well as kids of local professors, businessmen or government workers. We all attended classes together and socialized together. Race was never an issue with any of us ~ the topic simply never came up.

I left Sierra Leone in the fall of 1968 to come to the United States to attend high school in Connecticut as a foreign student. It was there I first encountered something with which I had no familiarity – racial self-segregation. Black students sat at their own dining tables in the cafeteria apart from the white kids. Having lived in different parts of the world, experienced many cultures and had multi-racial international friends this was new to me. Even at age fourteen I found it sad and troubling but I quickly learned that this was just the way it was.

We can have a long discussion about American history, the role of slavery and what transpired post-Civil War until today. But you’ll need someone far more qualified than I and more time than we have tonight. One thing is clear, however, race and ethnicity have been shamelessly exploited by the American Left for far too long. Over the decades, playing the race-card has driven an ugly and divisive wedge into American politics and indeed into American society.

There’s little doubt racism still exists but perhaps not in the way one might think. In fact, I’ll be blunt: much of racism today is fueled by a few in politics entirely for political advantage and that, ladies and gentlemen, is utterly reprehensible! The question is: how do we rectify this situation? What must we do to neutralize this cancer that is poisoning America? And it is a cancer for which we must find a cure because we do have a moral obligation to future generations as well as to honor the memory and legacy of Dr. King.

There are no magical solutions and I don’t presume to have the answers except to say that we as Republicans must stand tall, tell the truth and do what is right. We must not cower or succumb to the tactics of racial and ethnic division. We need to defeat those who promote division for political advantage. Dividing us into diverse groups or promoting “diversity” is how they’ve had short term gain but tragically to the long term detriment of America.

The way ahead will be arduous but we must take on that challenge. To save America we must unite Americans and not permit us to be permanently divided into pockets of races, cultures, religions, ethnicities or people who don’t trust or tolerate each others. We must instead remain a nation of people united through our common interests ~ an America that values liberty, human dignity and a sound national purpose. The values and beliefs that have made America the freest and most prosperous nation on Earth is a message that can and will resonate again but it must be delivered with thoughtfulness, consistency and with a firm commitment to our principles.

Messaging should begin with our children – we must take them back. There has now been decades of liberal-progressive indoctrination corrupting our schools by radical educators who clearly do not share our American values. In fact some openly preach hatred towards America, push revisionist history and deny our kids a learning environment where critical thinking, objective discourse, individual expression and common sense used to nurture honest, creative, responsible and productive citizens. We also have a media and entertainment industry that traffics in amorality to such an extent, core American values are being abandoned by our youth as an even more corrupt new normal emerges in our popular culture. Faith, Family and Freedom, or what I call the triple F’s are under relentless and open assault in America today.

We face a perilous time in our nation’s history and run the risk of losing generations of Americans who enter society believing in the worst of their own country. Those who wish to fundamentally transform America into something we don’t recognize or want had declared war our national sovereignty and our way of life decades ago ~ shame on us for remaining silent for so long.

Perhaps President Obama is a product of our silence. Things that he says and does reflect not only a misunderstanding of our founding, they reveal contempt for our traditional institutions and our American heritage. If I could speak to him personally I would say this to him:

Mr. President, you say that ‘we cling to our guns and our religion with antipathy towards those who are not like us…’

You are right. We do cling to our religion because the Bible teaches us three very important values: Virtue, Wisdom and Humility. Values you will find useful in your life.

We do cling to our guns because we have a right and a duty to defend our lives, our liberty and those of our loved ones. We take that responsibility very seriously. We believe the rights of the individual are unalienable and we will never abdicate that responsibility to anyone including government.

And yes, we do have antipathy towards those who are not like us, but not in the way you think. We love our country and our fellow Americans. We revere our faith in God, family, patriotism and we resent anyone who will attack or betray those values we hold so dear.

Ladies and gentlemen, our American values are fundamental. They are the glue that binds us together and indeed they have kept us strong. We abandon those values at our peril. As Republicans we must stand for American values and promote a message of unity. And most certainly, we must never ourselves default to these racially divisive tactics used by those whose goal is to divide us. Regardless of race, creed, ethnicity or even party affiliation, as Americans we share a far more profound mutual interest and that is ~ our love of Country.

It has been said that silence is consent. If we truly care about our beloved nation and for future generations to know what it really means to be American – then we must be silent no more. Thank you and God Bless America!

Janine, your “desires” are a mirror of mine. What an amazing Lord we serve! You are living proof that when we put the Lord at the helm of our ship, He will steer us to the waters of love, happiness and success on all levels. If only our current government would do the same…Please run for office, Janine…America needs you! Love you, Janine Turner!

Hello Janine :

I love the Word of God also.

When anyone discovers its value – everything changes – inside out. It is a prayerbook. It is a songbook. It is an attitude-adjuster. It is a book of solace and profound comfort. It also warns and disciplines. “It is Living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword”. When I think of people in history who really loved God’s word, I think of Jerome, Augustine, Calvin, and Bunyan. I believe these people read through the Bible hundreds of times.

How many times do you think a modern man or woman could read
through the Bible in a ten-year time period, if the Holy Spirit blessed them like the men mentioned above ?

I hope you will give me a number.

May every blessing be multiplied to you and your daughter, through Jesus Christ, as you continue to put your hope in His word.

I enjoyed your website immensely !

Agapao kai Phileo,

Roger Scott

Hello Janine,
I have been a fan of yours for many years. I am glad to see you stepping out front in the spiritual battle that is going on in our world today. I am a demonologist and work with Christians who have, through willful sinning or playing with occultism, form attachments that torment them and need deliverance. I went through it myself when I rebelled and let too much of the world influence my decisions. I pray that all is well with you and your daughter and hope that God grants you peace and blessings in the future. I believe God has blessed you with more physical beauty than most and I always wanted to look like you! But I am what God made me and am thankful. Continue to stand, for all that is right, and all that is Godly no matter what the cost. God bless you sister.

Janine,

I really enjoyed your speech at the I-School of Flower Mound graduation. My daughters are so blessed to live in a wonderful community with such great schools and educators. Our children are so smart and capable, so it was great for them to have an inspiring speech reminding them to appreciate God’s blessings and to reach for ways to better the world they live in, rather than just criticizing their leaders.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for speaking at the Single mothers conference, I was blown away. You are an amazing lady and I see it in your daughter also. When I told you about my book you didn’t look away you stood there and talked to about it even though you are super busy. I love that about you, I will be praying that God keep directing you in the right way and they he will give you strength to continue his work. Thank you so much.

Hi Janine,
Just wanted to leave you with a Book to read for your journey. My started in 1973 and in 2008 I discovered something that altered Everything I knew about Christianity. My well being and understanding of the bible was a very small Revelation at that time.
I came to this all on my own ,but afterwards discovered others that had came to the same conclusions as I did also. Please read ”The Parosuia” By James Stuart Russell.
You Can find it on Amazon for under 20.00. And please don’t let anyone deter you from reading this work from the 1800s. God Bless you as you look at the truth.

Janine,
Very proud of your stand and courage to be a Christian in an industry that despises Christianity and a dedicated single mom instead of staying in a caustic marriage. Also think it’s cool your dad was on the flight crew of a B-58 Hustler (pilot?). My dad was a naval pilot during that era and the B-58 would outrun most fighters of the day including his. Came upon your website while googling the cast of Cliffhanger (1993). Impressive and very patriotic in an era when that isn’t considered cool either. Keep professing the faith and keep up the great work. Proud of you! You’ve always looked like a movie star from the 40′s – timeless.
