DO NOT WORRY

Matt 6:25“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your lifee ?
28“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

TACTICIAN VS PRAGMATIST

Tacticians are usually people of principle, vs someone who is just self-centered. Many times a tactician will fall into the Trap of pragmatism. Or they will do what is easier or more convenient then what is right and therefore of holding their principles.
This is why Jesus was not a pragmatist, but was a tactician who had a goal and never fell for his selfish ambition but always followed his goal that had given to him by GOD THE FATHER.
HIS GOAL:

  • Was to perfectly obey the father, therefore never sinning, which qualified him to have power over sin and death. 
  • This brought him to his ultimate goal of the Redemption of mankind and the cosmos.
  • Jesus was not a pragmatist because he never took the short cuts to redeem mankind. He did it through obedience to the Father and suffering on the cross.
A dictionary definition
Tactician
A tactician is someone good at planning tactics: the specific means of accomplishing goals.
A strategy is an overall plan for accomplishing something. Tactics are the steps taken to carry out the strategy. If someone is skilled at coming up with tactics, they are a tactician. In a political campaign, a tactician helps with speeches and ads. In football, a tactician draws up plays. In war, a tactician figures out specific ways of carrying out the plans of the generals. A tactician knows how to get things done.
Pragmatist
A pragmatist is someone who is pragmatic, that is to say, someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn’t let emotion distract her. A pragmatist can also ignore her own ideals to get the job done, so in this way it can have a slightly negative meaning. The word is often used in reference to politicians to mean that they are either sensible or willing to cut corners for their cause.

OSCARS ARE NOW A GIANT ANIMISTIC REVIVAL

The left has now mixed religion or belief in a nature god, and animism (the belief that objects contain evil) with gospel music, the media of Black Culture, to have emotional revival meetings at the Oscars.  They are emotionally moving people 'to hate'  this object the gun.  The group of people they are directing their hate at is the NRA. They are waging disarmament and peace instead of self-government and defense. In doing this they are trying to attract the nominal evangelicals and Christians.  If they can get evangelicals and Christians to follow emotions as opposed to every word that proceeds from the mouth of God they could win this battle.

WATCH PREFORMANCE AT THE OSCARS

WIKIPEDIA
Animism (from Latin anima, "breathspiritlife")[1][2] is the religious belief that objects, places and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence.[3][4][5][6]Potentially, animism perceives all things—animals, plants, rocks, rivers, weather systems, human handiwork and perhaps even words—as animated and alive.
The religious studies scholar Graham Harvey defined animism as the belief "that the world is full of persons, only some of whom are human, and that life is always lived in relationship with others".[12] He added that it is therefore "concerned with learning how to be a good person in respectful relationships with other persons".[12] Graham Harvey, in his 2013 Handbook of Contemporary Animism, identifies the animist perspective in line with Martin Buber's "I-thou" as opposed to "I-it". In such, Harvey says, the Animist takes an I-thou approach to relating to his world, where objects and animals are treated as a "thou" rather than as an "it".[46]
