  1. I heard it reported once on the news that when these events first began and there was the first attempt to blame it on the YouTube video the reporter went to the site and only a thousand some folks had even viewed the video at that time. Considering the population of the earth is around 7 billion, this means hardly anyone had even seen the video and it's certain 99-100% of the "protestors haden't seen it.


    You are right. I didn't catch this myself but there were very few viewings of the video. If I remember it was around 4,500. Most of the viewings probably came after the rioting.


  2. I've noticed in many cases as I've grown older they don't want mature workers as much as they used to. In years past they liked the mature workers but today it seems they want younger workers wlling to work for less and who are more compliant.

    I actually had an interviewer tell me once they didn't want someone in the position I was applying for who would speak their mind. They wanted someone who would do as they were told, right or wrong, and would cover the boss at all times, right or wrong. Since I had worked there for some time they knew which one I was and they gave the supervisory position to a young college drop-out who had only been working there for a couple of months.


    You might be right. Maybe they figure that at my age I should have my own business or already be a supervisor somewhere. Since I'm not maybe something's wrong with me.


  3. Swath and happyChristian, I was alluding to Dr. Roberson, not the church itself. It seems that most second generation churches begin to go downhill, and get worse as the third and fourth, etc, take charge. Someone had said something earlier on here about Bro. Roberson, and that was what I was referring to. Sorry if I did not make myself clear. Tennessee Temple was a great church, I am sorry to hear about her fall into modernism and worldliness, but not surprised. I am Watching Midwestern too, now that Bro Malone has passed off the scene. I hear the guy that took over is good so far (reliable source? I am not sure), and I hope they stand firm on the foundation that Christ has laid for them.


    I've be reading Dr. William Grady who has been lamenting the apostasy of Crown College (the college Dr. Clarence Sexton founded).

    Well, maybe this will lead to the scriptures being taught in churches again and maybe the churches themselves will start running bible institutes instead of sending their young folks off to college. Maybe the churches will actually start training men and women for the ministry instead of sending them off to some college patterned after the world.


  4. If that's true, then why not just pray that God doesn't destroy the world at all?

    I'm not trying to argue, I just believe that if it's already laid out in the Bible, then why pray about it? For example, you don't need to pray about whether you need to be baptised, or witness to people, because the Bible already tells us that we should. So if we already know the world's fate, why pray about it?


    God said to pray for the peace of Jerusalem nowhere did he say pray for the world. You pray lost souls but not the world.


  5. Yesterday, my pastor mentioned that we should pray that America always stays an ally of Israel. However, the Bible clearly states that all nations will rise up against them in the end. So I guess I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this? Why pray for it if we already know what God says will happen?


    I'm not sure if all nations will rise up against Israel at the end. I recall that some peoples will help shelter her during the tribulation. Also, don't forget the "judgment of the nations" in Matthew 25. Apparently, there will be some nations that will stand with her. Maybe not the governments of the nations themselves (they'll be fully controlled by Satan) but many of the people within those nations will stand with Israel and by their faithfulness will save their nation as a whole in the end when the Lord gathers the nations in the valley of Jehoshaphat (Joel 3).


  6. Of course, the intent was always (Marshall Plan) for the money to be laundered to the Communists and fund their subversive activities from within; worked brilliantly, still works brilliantly to this day!


    How can this be when the majority of the Communist nations went bankrupt? It seems that it is American Capitalism and uncontrolled government spending that is supporting China now. Industry moves to China for slave labor and China buys up all our government bonds so Congress can keep spending money like a drunken sailor. Nothing is made in America anymore. Just about everything we buy is made in China. The greed of Wall Street plays a big part too.


  7. I would agree with you except for one tiny detail, with two parts: A. Bibi has told the US that Israel does not need our money - we should respect that. B. Those who hold the purse strings hold the power. Israel should be sovereign. She isn't as long as we send her tax dollars. She has to ask us for permission to defend herself - and usually the US tells her to restrain. That isn't our place nor our business, as a nation.


    I don't know how Bibi can say they don't need our tax dollars. How does he think the military equipment we send him gets paid for?

    I agree with the rest of what you say but I'm still afraid that if we cut all ties with them, including financial, that will be the end of any positive relationship with them. In any case, I expect this to happen eventually because we'll be so bankrupted and controlled by China, Europe, the Middle East, etc. we'll either not be able to send aid because our money will be worthless or will not be allowed to by a foreign power.


  8. The American government has no business giving tax $$ to any foreign country. Stopping the financial "aid" that is going on would save billions of dollars. That is just one of the many things that could be done to tighten the federal budget. The US shouldn't even be sending money to our allies. The federal government is not a charity and ought not be run like one. If individual American people want to send money, that's their business (I'm talking about to our allies - to send money to those who would like to see us destroyed is treason).


    Sister, I believe the only reason America hasn't completely collapsed is because of our aid to Israel. God said he would bless those who would bless Israel. This is the only reason I can see that America hasn't been turned into Somalia by now. I understand your point about the federal government not giving charity but that's the only way to get the aid to Israel. Especially military aid. I don't think my check for $25.00 will do much. If we turn our back on them then there really isn't much more need for America on this planet. Dr. William P. Grady is his book "How Satan Turned God Against America" (you should checked it out) comes to the conclusion that America was created by God primarily for the protection of the Jews in the world.

  9. I watched the movie on Youtube. It was really hard to follow as well as poorly acted and produced. I'm not sure if it was the whole movie or just "highlights" from the movie because it seemed to jump from scene to scene without any plot. I do know that some of the things in the movie that supposedly was mocking Mohammed were things that Islam claims that Mohammed had said or done. Like him trying to commit suicide three times. Apparently, Google has blocked the movie now on Youtube because of pressure from Islamic corporations who must have a stake in the company. Of course, nobody seemed to have minded any of Dan Brown's books or movies (the Da Vinci Code; Angels and Demons), the Zeitgeist movie, The Last Temptation of Christ or Jesus Christ Superstar. This is exactly what the Muslims want. They first intimidate you into silence then they force you to accept their Sharia law out of fear.

    I'm not comparing the producer to Paul. I don't know him or what he really believes but that being said the apostle Paul caused a lot of rioting throughout Asia Minor and Europe because of his preaching the gospel and against the religion of the Jews.



  10. My mother's pastor suffered two seizures a couple of weeks ago - for the first time in his life. He underwent testing and they found a malignant brain tumor on his temporal lobe. He will be going to the doctor again this Wednesday to discuss surgery.

    They are pretty sure the surgery will go well. But there is a catch....

    The temporal lobe processes sounds, spoken words, memory, and emotion. The pastor may need to re-learn how to speak, etc.

    He preached yesterday morning, and told the congregation it might be his last time. It is a small church, and he has a job he's worked at for 35 years. His boss asked the pastor's co-workers to attend services yesterday morning - so there were a number of them there.

    He and his wife want only that God be glorified. He told the congregation that he isn't afraid - he is ready for whatever God has in store for him.

    Please pray for the surgeons, for the pastor (David Wymer - he's only 55), his family (kids are all grown and married with kids), church members, and co-workers (to be saved).

    Thanks.

  11. I agree with your assessment, Wilch. I would go further, though, and say that some of the old-time preachers weren't what they should have been - or even what they presented themselves to be. And that is one of the reasons we have the modern-day mess...



    I agree but IMO the majority of it is that most Christians, along with the world, demand their rights. This includes the right to come in and take over the church on demand. My brother's pastor goes through this all the time. And he's a mild mannered Southern Baptist. New people (usually from up North) would be coming into the church all the time, try to cozy up to him, then expect him to create an new ministry for them or let them run the business meeting. When they realize he wasn't a pansy they would get mad and leave after, of coarse, trying to split the church first.


  12. Sadly, it is very true. Yes, there is an attempt to topple the old soul winning, hell-fire and brimstone preachers, but it is being done by younger preachers who want to be cool, and even older preachers who want a big ministry.

    The modernization of Highland Park is heartbreakingly true.


    Yes, it will be one of these churches where the pastor goes by his first name and wears a t-shirt or sweater instead of a suit. He'll have gelled up hair like a nice metro and will wear the Brittany Spears type of microphone on his face. No bibles will be in sight. It will be a screen and projector with nice pictures of flowers and birds with verses from The Message written in fancy calligraphy. They'll want to completely remove the authority of the pastor. This is why no men will want to go to church anymore. This is what is really at the heart of the recent bashing of the old time preachers more than anything. Most of them were strong men who refused to let disgruntled carnal Christians run the church. God forbid if there is a hint of pastoral authority within the church.


  13. Just wanted to check in and see if there was anything new in the job search. Due you live in a rural area or are there lots of businesses to increase your possibilities?


    Thanks for asking. I live in a city of 75,000. I just moved here a few months ago to take care of my mom.

    The one job told me if I don't hear from them by Tuesday to call them back. This usually means I didn't get the job. I know the code words and phrases they use now when they don't want you. They'll say stuff like, "this is just the first round of the interview" or "we'll see if you are qualified". In all honesty, I can usually tell within the first 30 seconds if they are interested in me or not. It really comes down to whether they like you or not and how quickly you hit it off with them. More than how much you know, your qualifications or how nice of a resume you have it comes down to whether they like you or not.

  14. The last job I work in New York State before leaving that state forever was starting to bring in cons to do the work.

    This is one reason among many why people hate big business. It's all about the bottomline for the shareholders. You get rid of the workforce and bring in cons who make .25 cent per hour so some guy on Wall St. can buy another private jet. Unfettered capitalism will lead to slavery as sure as unfettered socialism would. The Chinese have proven that communism and capitalism can coexist.


  15. Anyone ever read this comic book? It's been out for several years now. It's written by a former Muslim.

    http://www.derafsh-k...-it-or-else.pdf

    The Hadith (Collection of sayings attributed to Mohammed upon which Sharia law is based. There are six major collections of the Hadith).

    Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
    Once Allah's Apostle went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o 'Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, "O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women)." They asked, "Why is it so, O Allah's Apostle ?" He replied, "You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you." The women asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?" He said, "Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?" They replied in the affirmative. He said, "This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn't it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?" The women replied in the affirmative. He said, "This is the deficiency in her religion."
    Bukhari 1:6:301


    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet said, “If anyone of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 516)

    Volume 4, Book 54, Number 492:
    Narrated ‘Abdullah: It was mentioned before the Prophet that there was a man who slept the night till morning (after sunrise). The Prophet said, “He is a man in whose ears (or ear) Satan had urinated.”

    Narrated 'Aisha:
    that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death). (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64; see also Numbers 65 and 88)

    Enjoy!



  16. It would be so nice to live on a chunk of land somewhere that would provide enough resources that you wouldn't have to leave, except to get fuel and some groceries. Beyond that, just stay out there and not even think about government and politics. Wishful thinking, as if we did that, we wouldn't be fulfilling the Great Commission. But it does make me feel better just imagining the simplicity of that lifestyle!


    I occasionally joke with my brother about how after Greenland thaws out from global warming I'm heading up there to stake a claim on some land.
