So, the alt-left would rather a family in need go without? Only the wicked would want that.

Fundies Say The Dardest Things is a M16 controlled website to discredit my exposing of the great conspiracy! 

M16 agents on Fundies Say The Dardest Things post my articles on The Reformation Online onto this site because the site’s title makes it seem like the people who’s posts end up here are crazy! 

Fundies Say The Dardest Things want me to seem crazy to prevent people from taking my words about Joshua of Nazareth, the Flat Earth, the Jesuits, and the British seriously. 

When Joshua of Nazareth claimed to be the messiah, the Pharisees tried to discredit him by calling him crazy. However he gained so many followers that they decided to crucify him. 

Joshua of Nazareth lived in the Roman Empire. The British Empire was established in 313 AD when Druid Jesus Constantine became Emperor. The British learned of the strategy of discrediting their opponents from the Romans. 

Jesus Constantine created the Latin Church. The Papacy has been controlled by the British Secret Service from it’s creation. 

The Pharisees originally mocked Joshua the Messiah but Joshua gained so many followers that they decided to crucify him. The British Empire will eventually send James Bond to assasinate me for exposing their conspiracy. 

But I will not cower in fear to the British. I will continue to expose the diabolical conspiracy and preach the truth about the messiah to save the souls of those who read my site from Hades.

(This TERF is talking about obscure transphobic theories.)

I think it would be hard to find any, since I expect any research like that is actively suppressed, just like Ray Blanchard's work.

But it seems obvious that fetishism and porn works the same way as addictive drugs.

The more people jerk off to it the more they get into it, eventually coming to a point where they want to transition.

At least it seems like a fair explanation for AGP, not sure about HSTS. I wonder if the recent uptick is in both categories or predominantly one of them.

Lady Checkmate's headline: "Trump endorses Roy Moore in phone call: 'We need his vote'"

Judge Moore has come under attack from the demonic alt-left, but we Christians are praying for him. We're very familiar with the false accusations, manipulations, exaggerations, outright lies, trolling and harassment from the alt-left (ask the Christian baker, florist, bed & breakfast owners and even me-haha). That group has no integrity and will do anything unscrupulous and unethical thing to attack those they disagree with.

I think homosexuality ought to be way more 'taboo' than pedophilia (but both should be legal whether 'taboo' or not). What is more disgusting, a man having sex with another man, or a 16 year-old girl having sex with a 15-year old boy? (this is pedophilia according to the American Psychological Association's Manual that tempest pulled up for us...although I also have to remark that I think psychologists are all a bunch of idiots engaging in a quack profession...and I am not sure their definition of pedophilia would be the legal definition either...then again it doesn't matter because in the USA I think an 18-year old boy having sex with a 17-year old girl is technically illegal too, regardless of what it is called. But at least there is no law in the USA against watching hentai anime which seems to be the case in Australia, lol).

Then again, since I'm a guy, I don't think a girl having sex with another girl is disgusting at all. Lol. And girls probably view homosexuality the same way I view lesbianism. So basically...everyone should be able to do whatever they want as long as no one is getting hurt in the process.

Rick and Morty are satanic! In the following episode titled, “FINDING THE MEANING OF LIFE,” the message of the video teaches that Biblical beliefs are not as important as having a social life. Ladies and gentleman, NOTHING could be further from the truth! Your eternal destiny depends on your beliefs! You had better believe (trust) the message of the Gospel. It matters what we believe. The Holy Bible is God's inspired Word! I mean the King James Bible!!! As Christians, we ought to be as narrow-minded as the Bible. The heathen world doesn't place any significance upon the Holy Bible. They hate it (John 15:19; Romans 1:25). They view it as a mere exploitative book, written by humans who were bigoted and hateful. Professing themselves to be wise, they are fools...

Romans 1:21-22, “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”

The cartoon's creators, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, are sick and twisted perverts. The show has numerous homosexual characters...

http://rickandmorty.wikia.com/wiki/Category:LGBT_Characters

Many people spend their entire life searching for answers, but they never find THE TRUTH...

2nd Timothy 3:1-2 and 7, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves... Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

The reason why is because of their love for sin, which hinders them from coming to the light of God's Word to be saved...

John 3:20, “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”

Few Americans want anything to do with the Word of God today, because of their love for sin. That's why Bible-preaching videos on YouTube receive hardly any hits, while perverted music videos by Taylor Swift receive 68,000,000 hits! It is a sign of these evil times that we are living in today. People don't want a holy God and truth, they want entertainment and a feel-good message at church.

I never heard of Rick and Morty until recently, when one of my web visitors asked me about it. I watched a few episodes on YouTube and was disgusted. Episodes of Rick and Morty have all sorts of erotic sadist/masochist clothing used on characters, filthy talk, constant perverted innuendos, and immoral scenes. Character's buttocks are exposed. Literally, it is a subtle form of cartoon pornography. I read on Wikipedia that Justin Roiland was fired by a former TV network, because of his cartoon's perverted content. These guys are losers! Sadly, now they are rich losers, because our sicko society today is so messed up that people love anything that's demented, sick and sinful.

Silas:

Who the heck do you think you are to try to abash the T-man with such words of unimmensity in so a multitudinous manner?! The Christian eats milksops like you for breakfast relative to the simpleminded ideas presented within your infantile posting. Relative to your simpletonian duplicity, have you forgotten that the Christian follows the Bible? In that respect, we have Romans chapter 1 within our KJV to instruct us on the role of male sodomites and their female counterpart, the lesbos, to wit:

"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."

Our Bible says much more relative to the place these depraved heathens hold within the Godly scheme of things.

If you want to point out some "problems", then you need to do so relative your problems of understanding the simple Christian Biblical facts and dynamics,ok? OK! Here's one: the Christian doesn't have "gay" or "straight" friends! Our Bible is against ALL manner of carnality, save for that used for procreation. Our Bible also prohibit us from mixing together with unbelievers. Therefore, the Christian is not and would not be friends with any deviants! Got it?

The Christian also knows who is on their way to Hell! Because the Christian Bible teaches us to JUDGE, including within the Matthean verses of 7:1-3 which call for RIGHTEOUS (a.k.a. Biblical) judgement, when read and understood in historical-grammatical context. The Bible tells us that sodomites, lesbos, and other deviants are that way BECAUSE they are not Saved! Therefore, the simple logical syllogism is that all of these pagans are on their way to Hell! Got it? You can thank the Christian later for enlightening you relative to these simple Biblical facts.

Quote# 134890

I recently watched a video posted by a YouTuber by the username of “Truth96130,” that is basically telling people Hell is not real and that it is a lie of the Devil that works for his benefit. Yes, seriously, Truth96130 really believes this. In the video a renowned and once respected Pastor by the name of “Carlton Pearson” claimed that God told him Hell is not real. I watched the entire video and gave it the complete chance to convince me that his claim was true. What it did convince me of is what the Bible had already warned me about, thanks to Jesus. I will demonstrate to you, the reader, with Bible verses that you can go look up yourself (not my philosophy), and the words of Jesus himself, how this claim is a full-fledged doctrine of demons.
“Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.” (NLT, 1 Timothy 4:1)

This verse by itself should be sufficient evidence for anyone to see that the “Hell doesn’t exist claim” is a trick of the devil to deceive those who are not strong with the Holy Spirit. The Bible warns us of false doctrines, false Prophets, and false Messiah’s. Did Pastor Carlton test the spirits? Did he pray on it and ask God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit for confirmation? I don’t think so, and neither did Truth96130. The devil is known for offering people things (sinful things) for instant gratification and happiness. God on the other hand is always patient and long-suffering, doing things at the right place and time. There is usually a lesson learned through a journey before you receive something from the Lord.
“Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” (NLT, 1 John 4:1)

Then you have Jesus telling you himself about hell, are the words of Jesus not sufficient? Truth96130 gave no credit to what Jesus said, and said that Jesus spoke in parables which are not historical events. So only the historical things that Jesus spoke about have value and not parables? Are you kidding me? Jesus was teaching lessons about Heaven and Hell, why would it need to be something that happened? Besides, hypothetically it was happening, people were going to Heaven and Hell after death.
It’s these type of people who cherry pick and choose what is convenient to fit their lifestyles, so that they can continue to do what they know is sinful and not feel convicted of it. They are only tricking themselves, but the worst part is they are trying to take others with them! (See Figure 1)
“So ignore them. They are blind guides leading the blind, and if one blind person guides another, they will both fall into a ditch.” (NLT, Matthew 15:14)

I refuse to let that happen, God ordered us to be the salt & light of the world.
“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” (NLT, Matthew 5:13-16)

Here is another lesson about Heaven and Hell from Jesus Christ our Lord and savior.
“Jesus also told them other parables. He said, “The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a king who prepared a great wedding feast for his son. When the banquet was ready, he sent his servants to notify those who were invited. But they all refused to come! “So he sent other servants to tell them, ‘The feast has been prepared. The bulls and fattened cattle have been killed, and everything is ready. Come to the banquet!’ But the guests he had invited ignored them and went their own way, one to his farm, another to his business. Others seized his messengers and insulted them and killed them. “The king was furious, and he sent out his army to destroy the murderers and burn their town. And he said to his servants, ‘the wedding feast is ready, and the guests I invited aren’t worthy of the honor. Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.’ So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests. “But when the king came in to meet the guests, he noticed a man who wasn’t wearing the proper clothes for a wedding. ‘Friend,’ he asked, ‘how is it that you are here without wedding clothes?’ But the man had no reply. Then the king said to his aides, ‘Bind his hands and feet and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ “For many are called, but few are chosen.” (NLT, Matthew 22:1-14)

Straight from the mouth of Jesus! This teaching illustrates how God sends his messengers and prophets to invite us to be saved, and to accept his Son, Jesus. We are constantly being invited to Heaven. The Bible is always referring to us (The Church) as the body of Christ and the bride of Christ, which is why this parable is about a wedding banquet for the King’s Son. The King being (God), the Son being (Jesus), the servants being (The Angels, Prophets, and Messengers), and the banquet representing (Heaven). I will let you guess who the invitees are.
Pay attention to the keywords, the servants were sent to notify “those who were invited.” This means not everyone is invited, so where do the uninvited go? I’m pretty sure they go to Hell. Let’s not forget “For many are called, but few are chosen,” that pretty much proves that some are chosen and some are not; meaning, some will go to Heaven and some will not.
Let’s continue on, the initially invited (The Israelites) rejected Jesus as the Messiah, some (The Pharisees) went as far as to kill him. From the beginning of the Bible all the way up to revelations, everyone that God has sent to warn humanity (His Prophets & Messengers) has been murdered or rejected all the way up to Jesus Christ and beyond. That covers the portion of parable talking about the invitees rejecting the invitation and some going as far as to murder the servants. Well, what about the King sending an army to destroy and burn their town?
I am glad you asked, throughout the Bible God turns his back on his people (The Israelites) when they reject him and rebel against him by doing such things as worshiping idols, breaking the commandments, and basically breaking their covenant with him. God removes his protection from them and even goes as far as to send other nations to attack them, as he did with King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. (The destruction and burning of the town also represents the end times in revelations). Of course, he was merciful and gave his people ample time to turn away from their sins and repent.
Moving on, the king sending his servants to invite everyone good and bad represents how the sacrificial death of Jesus enables everyone to be able to go to Heaven, without having to perfectly follow the Law of Moses. God knew we wouldn’t be able to do it. The Law of Moses was nothing more than just a long-term lesson to show us that even when facing the penalty of death and similar penalties, we would still break the law. He basically showed us that Humanity cannot govern itself without the help of God. We would need more than Laws, we would need a change of heart, and we would need the Holy Spirit.
Finally, the man not properly dressed illustrates how those that accept Jesus Christ (The Invitation), but continue to live in constant Sin, can lose their salvation. Just because you accept Christ does not mean you are guaranteed to go to Heaven, it’s only the start of your salvation. The Bible doesn’t say to run the race and fight the good fight for nothing. Now, Outer darkness, weeping, gnashing of the teeth, does that sound like Heaven to you? I think Jesus was speaking in a gentle fashion instead of being blunt and giving it to us straight; however, there is scripture which is not so nice, and for a good reason.
“And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.” (NLT, Matthew 25:46)

Eternal means nonstop, no breaks, forever, everlasting. Some people try to claim it’s just the second death, meaning you don’t get eternal life, but clearly the scriptures say different. You get eternal life, but it’s not the type of eternal life anyone would ever want. This is why God designed this life to be experienced in time. Things in time begin and end. This teaches us what eternity is. That is how just and fair God is.
“They will be punished with eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power.” (NLT, 2 Thessalonians 1:9)

If there is no Hell, how can sinners be punished in eternal destruction or separated from the Lord? Where will they go if they can’t go into Heaven?
“Throwing the wicked into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (NLT, Matthew 13:50)

“If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one hand than to go into the unquenchable fires of hell with two hands.” (NLT, Mark 9:43)

“But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed. For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the Day of Judgment.” (NLT, 2 Peter 2:1-4)

That last verse is just blatantly clear that we will all pay for our sins, and that Hell exist, period! It is true that you can pay for your sins on Earth, but only to a certain extent. God knows that we will not be ultimately perfect without sin,
“Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins.” (NLT, Ecclesiastes 7:20)

“As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous–not even one.” (NLT, Romans 3:10)

But this does not give you the green light to do whatever you want to. God’s mercy, grace, and forgiveness are determined and given accordingly. God knows when you are trying not to sin, compared to when you really don’t care and are trying to fall through the cracks. We should strive to have as little sin as possible, remember God knows what is in our hearts. He can see if your desire is not to sin, but you fall to it not by deliberate will, but by the evil we all inherited from Adam & Eve, there is a difference.

The devil knows this, which is why he uses clever lies to deceive people. Of course he will tell us that our sins are forgiven through Christ, so it doesn’t matter what we do once we accept Jesus, and OH’ yeah by the way, Hell doesn’t exist. That is not what the true Word of God tells us. The “There is no Hell” claim is a doctrine of demons, there is no doubt about it. If Hell isn’t real then why did Jesus go down to Hell for three days to console the spirits that were imprisoned there?

“Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit. So he went and preached to the spirits in prison, those who disobeyed God long ago when God waited patiently while Noah was building his boat. Only eight people were saved from drowning in that terrible flood.” (NLT, 1 Peter 3:18-20)

Truth96130 claimed that I am confusing the time of this verse. The verse above clearly states that Jesus went to preach to the spirits in prison (Hell) that disobeyed God during the time of Noah, basically all the people who died in the great flood; which by the way, is historically recorded in every culture around the world. If there is no Hell and I am confusing this verse, which I am obviously not, then why didn’t these same spirits go directly to Heaven? Why does the Bible say they are in prison? Why doesn’t the Bible simply say, “Jesus swung by the Prison (Hell) to bail these Spirits out?” Now let’s say there is no Hell, why are these Spirits in prison? What is this prison?
If you go back to (NLT, 2 Peter 2:1-4) which I mentioned earlier, you will see “For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the Day of Judgment.” Key sentence “where they are being held,” doesn’t that coincide perfectly with the spirits in prison! You know, prison, jail, being held captive, I don’t know about you, but it sure makes sense to me. This is the perfect example of scripture backing up scripture. As the saying goes “the writing is on the wall,” and let’s not forget about the parable of Lazarus and the rich man. (See Figure 2)
And his soul went to the place of the dead. There, in torment, he saw Abraham in the far distance with Lazarus at his side. (NLT, Luke 16:23)

When I mentioned this to Truth96130 his response was, “well that’s just a parable, and it’s not a historical event.” That statement does not in no way, shape, or form prove that Hell is not real, in fact it diverts from the fact that Jesus used a parable to teach a lesson about Hell. Keyword, “lesson,” Let’s look at the definition of the word parable.

Parable –
A short allegorical story designed to illustrate or teach some truth, religious principle, or moral lesson.
A statement or comment that conveys a meaning indirectly by the use of comparison, analogy, or the like.
Well there you go, a parable is designed to teach a lesson of truth. Just because it’s not a historical event does not mean it is not true. I recommend reading the entire chapter of Luke 16. All words out of the mouth of Jesus, let me remind you. Over and over again in the Bible Hell is spoken about, illustrated, and re-cautioned to those that would believe, keyword believe. The Devil would love for people to not believe in Hell, that way people would just live how they feel and do what they want without having to worry about the repercussions.
Finally, Pastor Carlton and Truth96130 argue that God is love and he wouldn’t do these things to us. I mean how could an all loving merciful God send his people to eternal torture, right? Well once again, directly from Bible verses and not my philosophy, I will show you how God is justified in everything he does. He is the genuine holder of truth, he sets the standards, and he uses fair scales, weights, and balances. We would like to believe we know more than God, we would like to believe our ways are just, we would like to believe we can replace his laws with our own, but the truth is God is the Creator and we are the created. God set the laws of the universe, not us. Who are we but mere mortals.
“For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (NLT, Isaiah 55:9)

Do we really expect to have the same mental capacity as the entity that created us and the Universe? Seriously? If that were the case then why would we even need God at all? We would be just like him, which is the exact claim the devil made before he was found with sin and casted out of Heaven. The devil claimed he would be like the most high.
“I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.” (NLT, Isaiah 14:14)

The created cannot expect to comprehend and know as the creator.
“How foolish can you be? He is the Potter, and he is certainly greater than you, the clay! Should the created thing say of the one who made it, “He didn’t make me”? Does a jar ever say, “The potter who made me is stupid”?” (NLT, Isaiah 29:16)

Furthermore, as I tried to understand why God would send people to Hell for not meeting his qualifications, I learned some important truths. God has a standard, the one and only true balance of justice, and he will not break it for anyone. He will not be a hypocrite and break his word. Anyone who breaks the law is subject to the consequences, even the Angels.
Example of Truth: Anyone that is truly honest with pure integrity would understand that it is justified for their child to go to prison for murdering someone. Only hypocrites and people without standards would argue different.

People that go to Hell choose to go to Hell. People that go to Heaven choose to go to Heaven. (See Figure 3) God did not make us robots, he gave us self-awareness. I ask the reader, what has more value? A living being that was programmed to be righteous, or one that wasn’t but chose to be and now is? (Causality) There is a reason for everything, which is not just a “saying.” You might not agree with the reason, but who are we to tell God what is and is not fair. I am 100% sure if Jesus Christ disobeyed God, God would have sent him to Hell too.

Another misconception is that it doesn’t bother God to send people to Hell. That is a lie of the devil. The same way it hurts parents to discipline their children with the rod, it devastates our Father to sentence us (his children) to Hell. God does not enjoy this which is why he sacrificed his only Son.
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” (NLT, John 3:16)

“The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.” (NLT, 2 Peter 3:9)

There is no excuse, we are warned and given a lifetime to get it right.
Then comes the question? We’ll if God is all loving and merciful then why does he let such suffering happen on Earth? That one is easy. There is suffering on Earth because we have free will to do what we want to, and some of us want to continue to do evil things. Some of us want to follow the devil instead of God. Some of us love sin more than we love our creator.
“And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.” (NLT, John 3:19)

People judge God and they never even get to know him. We’ll what about the good people who have bad things happen to them? Why doesn’t God protect them? First of all, what good people? We are all born evil.
“For I was born a sinner–yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.” (NLT, Psalm 51:5)

We inherited evil from Adam & Eve. We have to be taught to be good. We have the knowledge of good and evil, but without the help of God we will always favor evil. We are self-serving and self-gratifying.
“For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.” (NLT, John 12:43)

Also, remember we are not just facing people with free will that choose to be evil. We are facing our adversary the devil, and we are also facing spiritual battles in the unseen world around us.
“We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one.” (NLT, 1 John 5:19)

“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” (NLT 1 Peter 5:8)

“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (NLT, Ephesians 6:12)

And that my brother’s and sister’s is why there is pain and suffering in the world. Jesus made it very clear that we will suffer in this world, so why not suffer for him instead? Why not suffer to make it to the pearly gates?
“And all nations will hate you because you are my followers. But everyone who endures to the end will be saved.” (NLT, Matthew 10:22)

“Students are not greater than their teacher, and slaves are not greater than their master. Students are to be like their teacher, and slaves are to be like their master. And since I, the master of the household, have been called the prince of demons, the members of my household will be called by even worse names! (NLT, Matthew 10:24-25)

“Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” (NLT, 2 Timothy 3:12)

Jesus did not promise life without problems once you start following him. He tells no lies and gives it to us straight. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not about infinite happiness in this life, but it is about trials and tribulations leading to infinite happiness in the afterlife. Jesus never said we had to be perfect, nor does the Bible. The Bible tells us to turn away from Evil, stride to change; and most importantly, to ask God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit to help us do it. We are incapable of doing it on our own. So make no mistake of misunderstanding that only perfect people make it to Heaven, which is another lie of the devil. Name one person in the Bible, besides Jesus, that didn’t sin. You can’t do it. Do not try to earn your salvation, instead embrace it. Salvation is a gift from God, it is meant to be received and maintained.
“Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” (NLT, Ephesians 2:9)

Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who sacrificed himself on the cross so that we can be forgiven for our sins, become reborn and move forward from there, and know that hell is a real place. Fear the Lord of Heaven’s armies and respect who he is.
“Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.” (NLT, Proverbs 1:7)

“Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.” (NLT, Proverbs 9:10)

God can take our mistakes and help us correct them, he can help anyone, anywhere, anytime get back on the course he designed for them. It is never too late to turn to God through Jesus Christ. Simply lift your hands up to God and repeat “Jesus I repent of my sins and I accept you as my Lord and savior, Amen.” Then seek the kingdom first, read the Bible, continue to pray, and always talk to Jesus looking for guidance and answers, and remember we have the Holy Spirit to help us through it all.

“But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative–that is, the Holy Spirit–he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.” (NLT, John 14:26)

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” (NLT, Matthew 6:33)

I encourage all my readers to fact check me, go look for yourself and make sure that I am not misleading you. Make sure that I am speaking from the lessons of the word of God and not from my own philosophy. Make sure that I am not twisting the word of God. I also invite my readers to comment and share your opinions down below in the comment section. May the Lord of Heaven’s Armies Bless you all!

The Crusades...where were all the christians?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am studying the crusades right now. From what I can see the catholics were the ones doing all the bad stuff, yet in every book I read they say the christians, when in fact it was the catholics.

BUT you can not tell me that there were no non catholic christians in that time. So, where were they and why did they allow all of this happen?

I have to tell you, it drives me batty to hear people say "the christians killed all the jews and muslims in the crusades, blah blah blah. I know that the catholic church was the biggest then, BUT AGAIN, there had to be normal bible beleiving christians.

[I am Pro-Life.
I think abortion should be illegal, unless the mother's life is in danger.]




Life is life. Why kill a baby if the mother's life is in danger? Why not let the mother die and save the baby? Who are we to choose which life should be chosen over another? Why not leave it into God's hands to decide who should live or die. It is disturbing that some people claim to be pro life then put restrictions on life....

As much as some of you are in denial, men want a virgin. Back when society actually functioned, women remained virgins until marriage. Society was orderly - it worked. Then people were hoodwinked into adopting degeneracy instead of morallity, but that same hardwired desire hasn't changed in men. So, where does a man have to seek a decent virgin? Seems pretty obvious.

What do the other human persons here think ?

No doubt someone will object, saying something obviously ridiculous like, but atheists are persons.

But clearly this is mistaken because anybody without a well developed belief in God is obviously not a full human person.

What could be more obvious than that ?

How many full human persons do you know without a well developed belief in God. Obviously none, because if they were full human person they would have a well developed belief in God.

Now some people might object to killing atheists for there (and obviously it is there and not thier as they are not whos but whats ) organs but think of all the full human persons that would benifit from the organs and the medical research that could be done on these non-persons.

How could anybody object, they are not human persons and if you think we should not kill them then that is just because of out dated ideas and because they must really just want people to suffer. For shame on you !

So what do people think ?

Should we kill these atheist human non-persons for the benifit of fully human persons ?

Against the Heresy of Universalism

The hope that all will eventually be saved is feigned piety, but as I explain in the video, it is actually impious, because it contradicts God. If these people were so concerned about the salvation of everyone, they would put their cell phones down and get out there and evangelize them for Christ.

Any person who advocates the heresy of Universalism, or hopes that all will be saved, is either (1.) ignorant of Scripture, or (2.) in disobedience to Scripture. And any person who teaches you that it is permitted to hope all will be saved, is a false teacher who contradicts God. Says St. Paul: "let God be true, but every man a liar;" (Romans 3:4).

Much more can be said about the heresy of Universalism, but hopefully this video presentation is sufficient.

beautiful? poetic?

appalling and pathetic, really

i guess a question comes to mind, if humans evolved from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys? shouldnt they all be extinct?

if not, then they too are still evolving

so if this process is continuing, where are the 10%monkey-humans and the 50%monkey-humans and the 90%monkey-humans?

where are the other "evolving" species? or is everything in creation perfect in its evolutionary stages?

if cows were once horses, where are the 50%cow-horses?

Most religions today are atheistic, because they have rejected the True and Living God. Islam is of the Devil, and all Islamic Muslims are atheists. Oh sure, Muslims profess to believe in Allah, but Allah is a myth, a false god, a non-existent figment of their darkened imagination.

[On a video about prayer doesn't work]


Prayer works only if you are righteous. Like when I lost my pet bird when he flew away outside, I prayed with my family that he would return. 5 hours later, we found him across the street in a bush, unharmed... What are the odds? Less than 1%. AND, there were other instances in my life where prayer worked... the reason why it doesn't work for you is because you obviously don't have faith, which is a necessity for a prayer to work...

A lady at a checkout line was handing out Chick tracts today. I didn't think they still made them. It's called 'Kitty in the Window', copyright 2016. Whether new or a reprint isn't clear, but everyone in line politely accepted one. That's good to see these days.

Lady Checkmate:
"everyone in line politely accepted one. That's good to see these days."
It sure is. I smiled out loud :).
I meant to order some Chick tracts for fall festival. The neighborhood children come by to trick-or-treat, even if the outside light is off, so I keep snacks and tracts on hand for the kiddos. I waited too late to order online this year :(.
How's everything else? I'm enjoying the weather.

Mick Williams:
It's good and cold for the morning jog. I'll probably leave the tract at the library or some place it's sure to find good use, maybe order some for that purpose. Glad to see they're still in business.

Counseling" isn't even a true science or medical profession. Most or all counselors and psychologists are just quacks. It's a field of quacks, just like the American Psychological Association's pathetic Manual that tempest quoted from earlier.

Being a pedophile isn't some sort of sickness, it's perfectly natural if you like underage (but physically or almost physically mature) girls. Even if you like toddlers, that's still not a sickness, just the way you are (weird). Saying that pedophilia is a sickness is like saying that being gay is a sickness. People don't force gays to go to counseling.

Being gay is just as unnatural as wanting to molest a 5-year old toddler.

I'm gonna say it again so that I attract the wrath of all the idiots here who keep mentioning "counseling". Counseling is FAKE, it is for losers!! It's a stupid profession and everyone who does it is a quack!!

Oh yeah, ultrapostman, I just wanted to mention though that I don't think most pedophiles are ashamed. I wouldn't be ashamed if I liked 5-year old little girls. Although some certainly may be ashamed. Just like there are some gay guys who are ashamed and some gay guys who aren't.

The Russian Orthodox Church (also known as the Orthodox Catholic Church of Russia) is the largest of all Eastern Churches, and after the Catholic Church she is the second largest religious denomination in the world. Due to the closure of Russia to the outside she has remained to a great extent hidden or veiled from western eyes.

The Russian Orthodox Church should not be confused with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (also known as the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad), which was founded by Russian communities outside of Russia, which refused to recognize the authority of the then-Communist-dominated Russian church. However, BOTH organizations teach the same damnable heresies.

The Russian Orthodox Church is a false religion, a cult, just as is Roman Catholicism. In fact, Russian Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism are inseparably related. The Russian Orthodox religion teaches most of the same damnable heresies as does Roman Catholicism. The major difference is that Russian Orthodoxy refuses to recognize the Roman Vatican as their state head.

Russian Orthodoxy requires that a person keep the Seven Sacraments, just like Roman Catholicism. They teach the same heresy that baptism cleanses away "original sin." The Bible teaches no such foolishness. The truth is that only the blood of Jesus Christ can wash away our sins...

"In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins" —Colossians 1:14

No church can save you. Russian Orthodoxy and Catholicism teach that baptism is required for a person to join the church. On the contrary, the Bible teaches that the moment you believe upon Jesus Christ as your Saviour you are a member of the church (Acts 2:47).

[...]

The Russian Orthodox Church (in Russia and abroad) are false religions straight from hell. Please don't believe their lies. The Word of God declares that ONLY through childlike FAITH in Jesus Christ can a person be saved...

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." —Ephesians 2:8,9

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." —John 14:6

"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified." —Galatians 2:16


It's Jesus or Hell! I beseech you my friend, turn to Jesus Christ in faith. Simply receive Christ's payment for your sins. Jesus died, was buried, and rose again three days later. Jesus ascended into Heaven and applied His blood to the heavenly mercy seat in the holy place (Hebrews 9:12,24). It is Jesus' precious, literal, blood that washes away our sins (1st John 1:7; 1st Peter 1:18-19). Thank God for the gift of His dear Son (John 3:16).

Oh, so rape victims seeking emotional support from counselling are all losers who worship quacks? Counselling doesn't necessarily have to be founded on science as long as it achieves the effect of communcating verballing/emotionally with the person involved and find out how him/her can have less trouble living within the boundaries of society.


People who seek out counselors for emotional support are indeed seeing a quack (someone who engages in a profession that is not scientific, but pretends like his profession is). However, you are correct it is possible that a counselor could help in the scenario you mentioned. But it's also possible that talking to one's parents or friends could help just as much, if not more than, talking to a counselor.

People have the freedom to waste their money however they want however. So if a rape victim wants to waste money seeing a counselor, that's their choice. But counseling should never be mandatory (even though it is sometimes, usually only if laws have been severely broken, and even this is a stupid practice) since it is a quack art. People should never be forced to go to counseling. Especially not to "cure" something that is not even a sickness in the first place. Pedophilia is not a sickness. Even the 6-year old toddler version is not a sickness. It's just abnormal. It does not need to be cured. And the 15-year old girl version of pedophilia is even completely normal.

Insisting that pedophilia, in any form, needs to be "cured" through counseling (or any other method) is like insisting that gays need to be cured from being gay. Or insisting that people who are ugly need to be cured from being ugly. Or that blacks need to be cured from being black. Or that Buddhists need to be cured and converted to Christianity. And sending a pedophile to "counseling" (a worthless practice) is not gonna be any more helpful than sending him to a quack who waves around a magic wand and claims to cure people through "magic".

"Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.” Some yellowing tract from the Seventies or early Eighties, era of abusive celebrities and the infamous PIE, the Paedophile Information Exchange? No. Anonymous commenters on some underground website? No again. The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.” Hebephilia is the sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds. Another attendee, and enthusiastic participant from the floor, was one Tom O’Carroll, a multiple child sex offender, long-time campaigner for the legalisation of sex with children and former head of the Paedophile Information Exchange. “Wonderful!” he wrote on his blog afterwards. “It was a rare few days when I could feel relatively popular!” Last week, after the conviction of Rolf Harris, the report into Jimmy Savile and claims of an establishment cover-up to protect a sex-offending minister in Margaret Thatcher’s Cabinet, Britain went into a convulsion of anxiety about child abuse in the Eighties. But unnoticed amid the furore is a much more current threat: attempts, right now, in parts of the academic establishment to push the boundaries on the acceptability of child sex.

A key factor in what happened all those decades ago in the dressing rooms of the BBC, the wards of the NHS and, allegedly, the corridors of power was not just institutional failings or establishment “conspiracies”, but a climate of far greater intellectual tolerance of practices that horrify today. With the Pill, the legalisation of homosexuality and shrinking taboos against premarital sex, the Seventies was an era of quite sudden sexual emancipation. Many liberals, of course, saw through PIE’s cynical rhetoric of “child lib”. But to others on the Left, sex by or with children was just another repressive boundary to be swept away – and some of the most important backing came from academia.

In 1981, a respectable publisher, Batsford, published Perspectives on Paedophilia, edited by Brian Taylor, a sociology lecturer at Sussex University, to challenge what Dr Taylor’s introduction called the “prejudice” against child sex. Disturbingly, the book was aimed at “social workers, community workers, probation officers and child care workers”. The public, wrote Dr Taylor, “generally thinks of paedophiles as sick or evil men who lurk around school playgrounds in the hope of attempting unspecified beastliness with unsuspecting innocent children”. That, he reassured readers, was merely a “stereotype”, both “inaccurate and unhelpful”, which flew in the face of the “empirical realities of paedophile behaviour”. Why, most adult-child sexual relationships occurred in the family!

The perspectives of most, though not all, the contributors, appeared strongly pro-paedophile. At least two were members of PIE and at least one, Peter Righton, (who was, incredibly, director of education at the National Institute for Social Work) was later convicted of child sex crimes. But from the viewpoint of today, the fascinating thing about Perspectives on Paedophilia is that at least two of its contributors are still academically active and influential. Ken Plummer is emeritus professor of sociology at Essex University, where he has an office and teaches courses, the most recent scheduled for last month. “The isolation, secrecy, guilt and anguish of many paedophiles,” he wrote in Perspectives on Paedophilia, “are not intrinsic to the phenomen[on] but are derived from the extreme social repression placed on minorities …

“Paedophiles are told they are the seducers and rapists of children; they know their experiences are often loving and tender ones. They are told that children are pure and innocent, devoid of sexuality; they know both from their own experiences of childhood and from the children they meet that this is not the case.” As recently as 2012, Prof Plummer published on his personal blog a chapter he wrote in another book, Male Intergenerational Intimacy, in 1991. “As homosexuality has become slightly less open to sustained moral panic, the new pariah of 'child molester’ has become the latest folk devil,” he wrote. “Many adult paedophiles say that boys actively seek out sex partners … 'childhood’ itself is not a biological given but an historically produced social object.”

Prof Plummer confirmed to The Sunday Telegraph that he had been a member of PIE in order to “facilitate” his research. He said: “I would never want any of my work to be used as a rationale for doing 'bad things’ – and I regard all coercive, abusive, exploitative sexuality as a 'bad thing’. I am sorry if it has impacted anyone negatively this way, or if it has encouraged this.” However, he did not answer when asked if he still held the views he expressed in the Eighties and Nineties. A spokesman for Essex University claimed Prof Plummer’s work “did not express support for paedophilia” and cited the university’s charter which gave academic staff “freedom within the law to put forward controversial and unpopular opinions without placing themselves in jeopardy”.

Graham Powell is one of the country’s most distinguished psychologists, a past president of the British Psychological Society and a current provider of psychology support services to the Serious Organised Crime Agency, the National Crime Squad, the Metropolitan Police, Kent Police, Essex Police and the Internet Watch Foundation. In Perspectives on Paedophilia, however, he co-authored a chapter which stated: “In the public mind, paedophile attention is generally assumed to be traumatic and to have lasting and wholly deleterious consequences for the victim. The evidence that we have considered here does not support this view … we need to ask not why are the effects of paedophile action so large, but why so small.”

The chapter does admit that there were “methodological problems” with the studies the authors relied on which “leave our conclusions somewhat muted”. Dr Powell told The Sunday Telegraph last week that “what I wrote was completely wrong and it is a matter of deep regret that it could in any way have made things more difficult [for victims]”. He said: “The literature [scientific evidence] was so poor in 1981, people just didn’t realise what was going on. There was a lack of understanding at the academic level.” Dr Powell said he had never been a member of PIE.

In other academic quarters, with rather fewer excuses, that lack of understanding appears to be reasserting itself. The Cambridge University conference, on July 4-5 last year, was about the classification of sexuality in the DSM, a standard international psychiatric manual used by the police and courts. After a fierce battle in the American Psychiatric Association (APA), which produces it, a proposal to include hebephilia as a disorder in the new edition of the manual has been defeated. The proposal arose because puberty in children has started ever earlier in recent decades and as a result, it was argued, the current definition of paedophilia – pre-pubertal sexual attraction – missed out too many young people. Ray Blanchard, professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, who led the APA’s working group on the subject, said that unless some other way was found of encompassing hebephilia in the new manual, that was “tantamount to stating that the APA’s official position is that the sexual preference for early pubertal children is normal”.

Prof Blanchard was in turn criticised by a speaker at the Cambridge conference, Patrick Singy, of Union College, New York, who said hebephilia would be abused as a diagnosis to detain sex offenders as “mentally ill” under US “sexually violent predator” laws even after they had completed their sentences. But perhaps the most controversial presentation of all was by Philip Tromovitch, a professor at Doshisha University in Japan, who stated in a presentation on the “prevalence of paedophilia” that the “majority of men are probably paedophiles and hebephiles” and that “paedophilic interest is normal and natural in human males”. O’Carroll, the former PIE leader, was thrilled, and described on his blog how he joined Prof Tromovitch and a colleague for drinks after the conference. “The conversation flowed most agreeably, along with the drinks and the beautiful River Cam,” he said.

It’s fair to say the Tromovitch view does not represent majority academic opinion. It’s likely, too, that some of the academic protests against the “stigmatisation” of paedophiles are as much a backlash against the harshness of sex offender laws as anything else. Finally, of course, academic inquiry is supposed to question conventional wisdom and to deal rigorously with the evidence, whether or not the conclusions it leads you to are popular. Even so, there really is now no shortage of evidence about the harm done by child abuse. In the latest frenzy about the crimes of the past, it’s worth watching whether we could, in the future, go back to the intellectual climate which allowed them.
