Inflation, Gold, Cryptocurrencies and Gun Control

Click download link to listen on this device: Download Show

This week we spend a lot of time discussing inflation (both data focused and other factors) and the precious metals. In terms of inflation we also hear from Jesse Felder in the first two segments as to why he thinks the inflation trend could continue. Pay close attention to the discrepancy between how QE and QT impact inflation.

The precious metals sector has slowed down again. With low volumes across the board (except for Novo) and a declining gold price this year is turning into a choppy sideways move. However we are still up on the year and this is without may outside investor taking note.

We hope all our Canadian listeners have a great Thanksgiving! Enjoy the time with your family and friend and reflect on the good things in your life.

I love hearing for all of you so please email me personally at Fleck@kereport.com with topics, companies and potential guests that you would like to hear from.

  • Segment 1 & 2: Jesse Felder, Founder of The Felder Report joins me to focus on inflation. After Yellen recently said low inflation was a mystery there are points we discuss that should clear things up.
  • Segment 3: Newsletter writer Byron King looks at the resiliency of the metals stocks in the face of a declining gold price.
  • Segment 4: Business Editor of the Epoch Times Valentin Schmid updates us on the recent news around cryptocurrencies from a political and investment sense.
  • Segment 5: We open KER Politics with Joshua Philipp discussing the significant gains recently make in The War on Terror.
  • Segment 6: We discuss Healthpocket.com with The Director of Research and Data Kevin Coleman.
  • Segment 7: Australian author George Grundy discusses gun control around the world.
  • Segment 8: We discuss Death of a Nation 9/11 and The Rise of Fascism in America.

        The Bull Market – This time It Really Is Different

        This current Bull Market has indeed been the most hated in history. Typically one expects complete euphoria as new highs are made. However, this bull market is really different this time. This rally is by no means the product of euphoria. While the majority of analysts have been calling for a crash since 2010 and every new high was supposed to be the last, this cannot be compared to the Roaring 20s.

        If we lift the rug and look closer, you will start to put the pieces together.

            Presidential Executive Order Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty


            – – – – – – –


            By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, in order to guide the executive branch in formulating and implementing policies with implications for the religious liberty of persons and organizations in America, and to further compliance with the Constitution and with applicable statutes and Presidential Directives, it is hereby ordered as follows:

            Section 1. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch to vigorously enforce Federal law’s robust protections for religious freedom. The Founders envisioned a Nation in which religious voices and views were integral to a vibrant public square, and in which religious people and institutions were free to practice their faith without fear of discrimination or retaliation by the Federal Government. For that reason, the United States Constitution enshrines and protects the fundamental right to religious liberty as Americans’ first freedom. Federal law protects the freedom of Americans and their organizations to exercise religion and participate fully in civic life without undue interference by the Federal Government. The executive branch will honor and enforce those protections.

            Sec. 2. Respecting Religious and Political Speech. All executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall, to the greatest extent practicable and to the extent permitted by law, respect and protect the freedom of persons and organizations to engage in religious and political speech. In particular, the Secretary of the Treasury shall ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that the Department of the Treasury does not take any adverse action against any individual, house of worship, or other religious organization on the basis that such individual or organization speaks or has spoken about moral or political issues from a religious perspective, where speech of similar character has, consistent with law, not ordinarily been treated as participation or intervention in a political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) a candidate for public office by the Department of the Treasury. As used in this section, the term “adverse action” means the imposition of any tax or tax penalty; the delay or denial of tax-exempt status; the disallowance of tax deductions for contributions made to entities exempted from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of title 26, United States Code; or any other action that makes unavailable or denies any tax deduction, exemption, credit, or benefit.

            Sec. 3. Conscience Protections with Respect to Preventive-Care Mandate. The Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Labor, and the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall consider issuing amended regulations, consistent with applicable law, to address conscience-based objections to the preventive-care mandate promulgated under section 300gg-13(a)(4) of title 42, United States Code.

            Sec. 4. Religious Liberty Guidance. In order to guide all agencies in complying with relevant Federal law, the Attorney General shall, as appropriate, issue guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in Federal law.

            Sec. 5. Severability. If any provision of this order, or the application of any provision to any individual or circumstance, is held to be invalid, the remainder of this order and the application of its other provisions to any other individuals or circumstances shall not be affected thereby.

            Sec. 6. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

            (i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

            (ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

            (b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

            (c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

    Re: Seg 6.
    The dilemma, ultimately, is simple.
    Do you want a health system that is affordable by all,
    Or do you want the best healthcare system?

    The government MUST seek the former.
    Wealthy, and thus influential people, will seek the latter.

    This incompatible situation will always persist. The balance will vary from time to time, depending on politics, but there will always be a fight over where the line is drawn. The best healthcare system is not afforsable to the masses and never will be.

    Massacre after massacre will be with us.
    Does it really make a difference whether it is performed by gun or explosive, or by truck?
    Limiting guns will simply change the mode of the massacre, not stop it.

    On the other hand, self defense is universally recognized as a fundamental right.

        You are not free to kill a burglar unless he threatens your life.

        Those few police that have guns are permitted to shoot to kill a driver of a car that is headed towards them. They are permitted to shoot to kill an attacker with a knife, etc…. Just like American police they are trained to kill, not just to wound.)

        Big Al, I wonder if any of us truly understand what the founders suffered to give us and what we were given. I think the last words and hopes of John Adams says it best when he stated “Know posterity, Ye will never know how much it cost us to preserve your freedom. I hope that you will make a good use of it, and if you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”

        They deserve the nation’s gratitude and return to the principles that made the country great and not what we have become.

    I feel the Constitution has been destroyed, not so much by the Presidents, but by a politicized Supreme Court, which is not able to be overridden, by reasonable action.
    Those justices should be term-limited.
    Clearly also, the founding fathers never envisioned the extensive use of executive orders as a mode of circumvention of Congress.

      So, bonzo, why not consider Platinum or silver?

      • On October 7, 2017 at 12:56 pm,
        Matthew says:

        Silver makes far better money than platinum because its above ground supply, or stock, equals decades of (current) production, or flow. Platinum is much, much, MUCH closer to copper in this respect with a comparatively minuscule “stock to flow” ratio.

        The higher the stock to flow ratio the better because we want our money to be as stable as possible. At current production, it would take about seven decades to double the gold supply. Compare that with the Fed and its ability to double the supply of the currency it emits anytime it wants to (thereby stealing half of its value).

            But I get your thoughts CFS,
            Regardless of being a note or a coin they are merely ever depreciating swap tokens for goods or services.

    How to Fund a Universal Basic Income Without Increasing Taxes or Inflation

    The policy of guaranteeing every citizen a universal basic income is gaining support around the world, as automation increasingly makes jobs obsolete. But can it be funded without raising taxes or triggering hyperinflation? In a panel I was on at the NexusEarth cryptocurrency conference in Aspen September 21-23rd, most participants said no. This is my rebuttal.

    In May 2017, a team of researchers at the University of Oxford published the results of a survey of the world’s best artificial intelligence experts, who predicted that there was a 50 percent chance of AI outperforming humans in all tasks within 45 years. All human jobs were expected to be automated in 120 years, with Asian respondents expecting these dates much sooner than North Americans. In theory, that means we could all retire and enjoy the promised age of universal leisure. But the immediate concern for most people is that they will be losing their jobs to machines.


    • On October 7, 2017 at 7:43 am,
      OOTB Jerry says:

      Universal basic income…………..we already have that……..called WELFARE, Snap cards, unemployment benefits…

        Certainly, in a sense, Jerry.

      • On October 7, 2017 at 11:28 am,
        Markedtofuture says:

        Welfare can encourage laziness, because benefits go down as earned income goes up. But studies have shown that a UBI distributed equally regardless of income does not have that result. In 1968, President Richard Nixon initiated a successful trial showing that the money had little impact on the recipients’ working hours. People who did reduce the time they worked engaged in other socially valuable pursuits, and young people who were not working spent more time getting an education. Analysis of a similar Canadian trial found that employment rates among young adults did not change, high-school completion rates increased, and hospitalization rates dropped by 8.5 percent. Larger experiments in India have reached similar results.

        Studies have also shown that it would actually be cheaper to distribute funds to the entire population than to run the welfare services governments engage in now. It has been calculated that if the UK’s welfare budget were split among the country’s 50 million adults, each of them would get £5,160 a year.

          The second paragraph of yours, Markedtofuture, is an interesting conclusion.

      Dick Tracy says:

      Almost all the people that I worked with are still on the job past retirement, ninety per cent of them are clueless on what to do with their spare time. But then again if you have a government job you can still go to work with your walker and pretend you are working. All of them have health issues, some have two, three, or more problems. They could improve upon their health if they spent the time addressing these issues which retirement affords. It is also a shame that people can show up at a job, get paid a good wage after sixty-five when they don’t need the money, while denying younger workers a full time job. I find this to be very selfish.

      All the other employees in the private sector would probably want to carry on at their old job but age is a real barrier for working at a job that isn’t guaranteed or doesn’t have union protection. Universal income will be here shortly, but most humans can’t adapt to doing something that doesn’t require someone to tell you what, where, and when. DT

      I found out first hand yesterday how many constraints there now are on Cdn stocks. My broker at Sprott Global told me they are now charging $595 for putting stock into my account that resulted from private placements. The amount of paperwork that must accompany the $595 is also interesting.

        Al, I believe in normalcy, The Canadian Government should keep it’s hands off business (except to give it a lift now and then through the imposition of favorable trade tariffs), I suspect you are getting backlash from Trump’s NAFTA negotiations. Our Government should be unobtrusive and leave things alone, give industry and trade a free hand to garner profits.
        Trump’s policies have a tendency to rock the boat, we are getting a US President who is not unobtrusive and seen as unfriendly towards our country, unfortunately I think Canada is now being vindictive in some of it’s policies. This will not be good for us, we must let bygones be bygones. DT

          I would suppose Dick. I just find it interesting that many of my stocks have “restrictions” on them. Now in addition to clearing the restrictions I have to state specifically how much I paid for the shares; how I was able to even purchase the shares; and, provide written proof that I actually paid for the shares. The whole process can now take up to six weeks.

    “We discuss Death of a Nation 9/11 and The Rise of Fascism in America.”
    There is no Nazism or Fascism in America except for what is believed by those patriotic white people who were attacked by Antifa in Charlottesville in August. Everyone else are Judeo Masonic Marxists or their brainwashed victims who still have fantasies of living in a free and democratic society of the 1950’s or earlier. The coming of Trump to the White House evidently did not bring fascism to america and did not snap the majority out of their day dreams. It just kept the Judeo Masonic Marxist Oligarchy in power for a while longer. May be a few people discovered the futility of voting but not enough yet to do any good.

    Big Al, The gun debate in the media and in the government never seems to start at the proper starting point and that is to understand the reason for the 2d amendment and for the other of the first ten amendments.

    The first ten amendments, known as the bill of rights, came as a result of George Mason’s concern that a statement of rights was missing in the body of the constitution. Since they were in the process of signing the constitution, it was determined that Mason’s concerns had merit and that those concerns could be addressed after the signing.

    Some in the convention argued that the enumeration of powers granted the federal government, alone protected the inalienable (God given) rights of the people and a separate bill of rights was not needed. Mason and some others in the convention disagreed, believing that generations down the road might not fully comprehend what the founders intended and would look back to them for a protection of those rights.

    The word amendment seems to imply a change of something, but this is not true of the first ten amendments. Unlike other amendments, the first ten didn’t change anything in the constitution, but rather, reiterated the intent for the protection of basic rights that the founders understood would be protected in the body of the document.

    The 2d amendment, according to the thoughts and writings of the founders, was to ensure that the people were guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms to prevent the federal government in becoming tyrannical and destroying the inalienable rights of the people. It had nothing to do with sports, hunting, or even self defense on the frontier, as these were understood to be natural rights. Keeping the federal government in check was the primary reason for the 2d amendment.

    As it reads, we must define it according to the meaning of the words in the founder’s day. Militia was every able bodied man capable of bearing arms in combat. A well regulated militia had nothing to do with government regulations as used today, but well regulated meant that able bodied men drilled regularly on the village green so they were comfortable and capable in their ability to rise to the occasion when needed.

    You will notice that the amendment does not say the right of the militia or a body of men to keep and bear arms is protected, but that the right of the people. It is an individual right. A right that enables all to keep and bear arms, even though some may be drilled and called upon in time of need. Being necessary for a free state has nothing to do with a national guard or other military group, but that the 2d amendment, when applied, would contribute to the maintenance of a free state.

    The first ten amendments are individual rights, not group rights.

    This having been said, does not mean, we as a people should not enact common sense legislation which does not infringe on the rights of the individual, but does keep guns out of the hands of those suffering conditions making them unfit to keep and bear arms.

    I believe that if this issue were debated honestly and openly, starting from a common understanding of the purpose and intent of the 2d amendment, according to the founder’s, we could arrive at some common sense legislation.

    We must always remember that some rights are inalienable, meaning that they come from the Creator and our efforts should stem from that understanding. Well meaning people can disagree on the founder’s intent and can disagree on how to address the issue, but we must agree on how it came about and why, to begin the discussion. If we debate coming from a different understanding of what the founder’s intended, it will be nearly impossible to have the debate needed, we must start from a common starting point.

    It has been asserted by some that if the founders came back that they would be appalled at the number of guns in the land and the violence. I believe they understood human nature very well and what would appall them more would be how tyrannical the federal government has become, going well beyond it’s enumerated powers and trampling the rights of the people and that the people didn’t seem to know how the constitution was to be applied. This ignorance and disregard of how government was to work and the tyranny of the government would be the most concerning to the founders, not the number of guns the land.

    Just my opinion, but having read the founders words extensively, I believe I am on good footing and understand much of what they believed and intended.

    The U.S. Economy on Firm Footing – U.S. economic output grew at a 3.1% annual rate in the second quarter of 2017, the best quarterly rate of growth in two years. Based on market exchange rates, J.P. Morgan estimates that the global GDP growth rate for Q3 was 3.8%, which might be higher than the U.S. third quarter GDP estimates. This growth rate would be the highest recorded since mid-2010. On a more granular level, the Institute for Supply Management’s September Non-Manufacturing Index rose 4.5 to 59.8, its highest level since August 2005. Since readings over 50 imply expansion, 59.8 implies robust expansion. New Orders rose 5.9 points to 63.0, which is even stronger. With corporate earnings also positive and on the rise, our outlook for stocks remains optimistic. The U.S. economy has never had a recession with corporate profits rising.

      In Spain it is not just the Catalans that are revolting.

      BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Thousands rallied in Madrid and Barcelona on Saturday in a last-ditch call for Spanish and Catalan leaders to stave off a national crisis amid Catalonia’s threat to secede.

      The rallies in the Spanish capital and the Catalan city were held with the slogan “Shall We Talk?” in an effort to push lawmakers in both cities to end months of silence and start negotiating. Attendees respected the organizers’ call to not bring the Spanish or Catalan flag.

      Catalonia’s regional president Carles Puigdemont has vowed to make good on the results of last Sunday’s disputed referendum on secession won by the Yes side. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy warned that the vote was illegal and has promised that Catalonia is going nowhere.

      Protestors packed Barcelona’s Sant Jaume Square where the Catalan government has its presidential palace, shouting “We want to talk!” and holding signs saying “More Negotiation, Less Testosterone!” and “Talk or Resign!”
      “We have to find a new way forward,” said Miquel Iceta, the leader of Spain’s Socialist party in Catalonia. “It’s the moment to listen to the people who are asking for the problem to be solved through an agreement, and without precipitated and unilateral decisions.”
      The gathering around Madrid’s Cibeles fountain boasted a huge banner demanding that leaders start talking. Some people chanted “Less hate, and more understanding!”
      In a separate rally in Madrid’s Colon Square, thousands clamored for the unity of Spain and against any attempt by the northeastern region to break away. The crowd bristled with Spanish flags. Pro-union forces will try to generate momentum on Sunday in a protest in Barcelona.
      Other protests asking for dialogue were held in cities including Valencia, Bilbao, Pamplona and Sanitago de Compostela, news agency Europa Press reported.

    MOSCOW (AP) — In a challenge to President Vladimir Putin on his 65th birthday, protesters rallied across Russia on Saturday, heeding opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s call to pressure authorities into letting him enter the presidential race.
    Police allowed demonstrators in Moscow to rally near the Kremlin in an apparent desire to avoid marring Putin’s birthday with a crackdown. A bigger rally in St. Petersburg, Putin’s hometown, was disbanded by police after protesters blocked traffic and attempted to break through police cordons.
    The rallies came as Navalny himself is serving a 20-day jail term for calling for an earlier unsanctioned protest.
    In Moscow, several hundred protesters, most of them students, gathered on downtown Pushkinskaya Square, waving Russian flags and chanting “Russia will be free!” and “Let Navalny run!” Police warned them that the rally wasn’t sanctioned and urged them to disperse, but let the protest continue for hours without trying to break it up.
    Mostly teenage protesters later walked down Moscow’s Tverskaya Street toward the Kremlin, shouting “Putin, go away!” and “Future without Putin!”
    Police lines blocked them from approaching Red Square and they turned back. Several hours later, some made a new attempt to march on the Kremlin, shouting “Putin thief!” and briefly attempted to block traffic.

    Puerto Rico faces looming Medicaid crisis

    Puerto Rico is facing an imminent Medicaid funding crisis, putting nearly one million people at risk of losing their health care coverage.

    Now, if Puerto Rico’s federal Medicaid funding runs out, up to 900,000 people would likely be cut from Medicaid — more than half of total enrollment, according to federal estimates.

    A massive influx of Puerto Ricans could also migrate to the mainland, which would put a strain on the Medicaid programs of the states they move to.

    Nearly half of Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million residents participate in Medicaid.

    Since it is a U.S. territory and not a state, Puerto Rico doesn’t receive nearly as much federal support as states do.

    On average, the federal government covers 57 percent of a state’s Medicaid costs.

    But residents of the territories don’t pay federal income tax; As a result, federal spending is capped and territories only get paid about 15 to 20 percent of their total Medicaid cost.

      U.S. Gun Control Legislation, 1968-Present

      Emanuel Celler

      1968: The Gun Control Act of 1968 comes from Rep. Emanuel Celler’s House bill H.R. 17735. It expands legislation already attempted by the non-Jewish Sen. Thomas Dodd. America’s biggest and most far-reaching gun law came from a Zionist.

      Howie Metzenbaum

      1988: Senate bill S. 1523 is sponsored by Senator Howard Metzenbaum. It proposes legislation turning every violation of the Gun Control Act of 1968 into a RICO predicate offense, allowing a gun owner to be charged with federal racketeering offenses.
      1988: Senator Metzenbaum co-sponsors a bill — S. 2180 — to ban, or limit/restrict, so-called “plastic guns.”

      Herb Kohl

      1990: Senator Herbert Kohl introduces bill S.2070, the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, which bans gun possession in a school zone. The law will later be struck down in court as unconstitutional.1993: Senate bill S.653 is sponsored by Sen. Howard Metzenbaum. It bans specific semiautomatic rifles, but also gives the Secretary of the Treasury the power to add any semiautomatic firearm to the list at a later date.

      Chuck Schumer

      February, 1994: The Brady Law, which requires waiting periods to buy handguns, becomes effective. Senator Metzenbaum wrote the Brady Bill. Metzenbaum sponsored the bill in the Senate. The sponsor of the bill in the House was Rep. Charles Schumer [2].1994: Senator Metzenbaum introduces S.1878, the Gun Violence Prevention Act of 1994, aka “Brady II.” Rep. Schumer sponsored “Brady II” sister legislation [H.R. 1321] in the U.S. House of Representatives.

      Dianne Feinstein

      September, 1994: The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 goes into effect, including a provision that bans the manufacture and possession of semiautomatic rifles described as “assault weapons.” [Note: true assault weapons are fully automatic, not semiautomatic]. That gun-ban provision was authored in the Senate by Senator Dianne Feinstein and authored in the House by Congressman Schumer.

      Arlene Specter

      1995: Senators Kohl, Specter, Feinstein, Lautenberg and others introduce the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1995, an amended version of the 1990 school-zone law which was struck down in court as being unconstitutional.

      Frank Lautenberg

      September, 1996: The Lautenberg Domestic Confiscation provision becomes law. It is part of a larger omnibus appropriations bill. It was sponsored by Senator Frank Lautenberg. It bans people convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence from ever owning a gun.1997: Senate bill S. 54, the Federal Gang Violence Act of 1997, proposes much harsher sentences for people violating minor gun laws, including mandatory prison sentences and forfeiture of property. It was introduced by Dianne Feinstein and Senator [Hatch], among others. It returns the idea of turning every violation of the Gun Control Act of 1968 into a RICO predicate offense

      Barbara Boxer

      January, 1999: Senator Barbara Boxer introduces bill S.193, the American Handgun Standards Act of 1999. January, 1999: Senator Kohl introduces bill S.149, the Child Safety Lock Act of 1999.

      March, 1999: Senator Lautenberg introduces bill S.560, the Gun Industry Accountability Act of 1999. March, 1999: Senator Feinstein introduces bill S.594, the Large Capacity Ammunition Magazine Import Ban Act of 1999. May, 2000: Senate bill S. 2515, Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2000, is submitted by Senators Feinstein, Senator Barbara Boxer, Sen. Lautenberg and Sen. Schumer. It is a plan for a national firearms licensing system.

      January, 2001: Senate bill S.25, Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2001, is sponsored by Feinstein, Schumer, and Boxer. It is a nation-wide gun registration plan [apparently there were two versions of that Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act bill].

      May, 2003: Senators Feinstein, Schumer, Boxer and others introduce legislation that would reauthorize the 1994 federal assault weapons ban, and, close a loophole in the law that allows large-capacity ammunition magazines to be imported into the U.S. The ban is scheduled to expire in September, 2004.

      October, 2003: Senators Feinstein, Lautenberg, Levin [also Jewish] and Schumer co-sponsor bill S.1774, designed to stop the sunset [ending] of the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988.

      March, 2005: Senator Lautenberg introduces bill S.645, “to reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act,” in other words, to reinstate the 1994 assault-rifle ban [also known as the “Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994“] which expired in late 2004.

      March, 2005: Senator Feinstein introduces bill S.620, “to reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act,” in other words, to reinstate the 1994 assault-rifle ban [also known as the “Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994”] which expired in late 2004. [2]”

      “What is particularly hypocritical and galling about the list above is that every Jewish politician included on it supports the world’s only Jewish state, Israel, which allows every citizen, every man, woman or child to carry a weapon of their choosing. In fact, many Israelis are armed to the teeth, brandishing Uzi submachine guns, AK-47s, pistols, etc.”

    I believe that President Trump get his information from people, he is a businessman and not an academic. But the mainstream media is so harsh in it’s condemnation of him that this effect is causing him to act like a lone wolf. He does not back down, they should remember this when they paint him in a corner. Trump would not be at a disadvantage if he had to negotiate with The North Koreans around a peace table, this is one area where this President stands out.

            I believe there are many paths to serve truth, beauty, God.

            I also believe there is False Religion, that misleads its followers into evil. And that all creeds have many who claim to follow them, but in fact do more evil than good.

            The Indians could not have any “christianity” until after the cross.
            Which would have been 33AD. I do not think there are any records showing the disciple went to North America……prior to 1492 ad.
            The Indians were waiting on the message to be shared to them……after the cross.
            They are not less loved by God….but, would be sinning if , they had any other god before them., They can not have the sun and the rain gods, for there is only one….GOD.
            Christianity, would be after confessing Jesus is lord and savior., and believe that Jesus , died , was buried, and resurrected , by confession ….
            And it does not make any difference of any type of race, color etc, whether , one is called a Christian….would not make an Indian less christian, all men are equal ….God loves them All, but, he did send Jesus….which died for All sins, Past , Present, and Future.
