Quote# 130353

Jayson was about eight years old when it started. It’s a real-life nightmare that wounds deeply and causes every mom and dad to shudder.

Over seven years, Jayson was sexually abused by several people. One of them was a scout leader — someone he should have been able to trust.

For Jayson, these events were not only traumatic, but they began a long struggle with unwanted same-sex attractions. Sadly, he’s hardly alone in this experience. Childhood sexual abuse is common for those who struggle with homosexual feelings, temptations, orientation and identity.

The good news is that Jayson found help that reversed the course of his life. It came in the form of professional counseling that — over a period of years — transformed his life and realigned his sexual identity with his faith. In fact, it was such a positive influence for Jayson that he’s now providing pastoral coaching to those who are dealing with similar struggles and their parents. God does work all things together for good (Rom. 8:28)!

But incredibly, there’s a movement under way in our nation to ban young people from receiving the same professional counseling that turned Jayson’s life around. State by state, “gay-rights” activists are pushing bills which mandate that counseling on sexual orientation be a one-way street — toward homosexuality.

If this dangerous scheme isn’t already the law in your state, an effort to pass it is coming soon. That’s why your Family Policy Alliance is gearing up in states across the nation to prevent this assault and to push back on states where it currently exists.

While the brazenness of this push is surprising, the energy behind it is not. After all, the homosexual movement has long had as its goals: tolerance, then forced acceptance and, ultimately, punishment to those who won’t embrace their agenda. These bans on therapy for minors are an attempt to force acceptance of homosexuality right into our own homes.

[On a Republican governor declaring August 4 "Barack Obama Day"]

A Republican governor heaping praise on the most immoral promoting president in American history, Barack Obama, who ushered in homosexual so-called marriage, who mocked the authority of the Bible, who promoted abortion, who loves Planned Parenthood. With Republicans like that, who needs Democrats?”

I think many are turning to other gods because they can physically see them or they feel that God has somehow let them down so they no longer believe He is accessible. But what they fail to see is the fact that they can physically see God because He manifests Himself inside of us.

Quote# 130317

For several years, one thoughtful kindergarten teacher in Southern California even provided ghosts for her pupils to commune with at Halloween. I spoke with one of the mothers from that school who told me that her little boy was sent home with a note from the teacher informing the parents that their child would be bringing home a “special friend” the next day. The child was to nurture his “friend,” name it, feed it, and talk to it—all as a part of a special class project that was designed to “develop the child’s imagination.”

The next day, the little boy came home with a sealed envelope along with explicit instructions that his parents were not to touch it; only the child was allowed to open the envelope. Mom said, “You bet!” and promptly opened it up. Inside was six inches of thick orange wool string with a knot tied a quarter of the way up to make a loop resembling a head. The mimeographed “letter” that accompanied it read as follows:

Haunted House
001 Cemetery Lane

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your order. Your ghost is exactly what you ordered. You will find that your ghost is attached to an orange string. Do not untie the special knot until you are ready to let your ghost go.

Your ghost will tell you when it is hungry and what it prefers to eat. It will sleep in the air beside you all day. It especially likes quiet places where there are cobwebs, creaky boards and corners.

If you follow the above directions, you will have a very happy ghost.

Yours truly,

Head Ghost

The mother, a Christian, didn’t approve of the idea of her son taking in a pet ghost, however housebroken. She was also a little suspicious of her six-year-old being addressed as “Dear Customer.” So she confiscated the thing and put it in the garage on a shelf until she could decide what to do with it. The next day, her sister was in the garage on an errand, unaware of the matter of the “ghost in the string.” Suddenly she was frightened by the sense of a threatening presence around her. She heard the sounds of a cat hissing in the corner and something like a “chatty doll” mumbling incoherently at her. Later that night they threw the “ghost string” into the garbage pail, prayed to bind and remove the entity, and were never bothered by the “presence” again. This family had no trouble whatever believing that a spirit had indeed been sent home with their little boy and that it didn’t much like having been assigned to a Christian household

Islamic Invasion of America

I am growing very weary of writing over and over again about the false narrative of true Islam. Why do so many people rush to defend Islamic terrorists who kill in the name of their god?

A devout follower of Jesus Christ will submit his neck to the sword. A devout follower of Muhammad will commit his sword to the neck.

Insult Christ and a true Christian may pray for you. Insult Muhammad and a true Muslim may slay you.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The most "radical" born-again Christian fundamentalist would be someone who walked in perfect love and humility. The most radical Islamic fundamentalist would be someone who walked in perfect Jihad against all who do not practice true Islam.

Just because false Islam rides in defense and peace during its response to a terrorist attack, doesn't mean that true Islam did not ride in offense and war during its execution of that same terrorist attack.

Likewise, just because someone kills innocent civilians under the banner of Christianity doesn't mean that true Christianity is a death cult. True Islam has to be compared with true Christianity.

Any attempt to compare false "peaceful" Islam with false "militant" Christianity is morally irresponsible and reckless. True Islam is militant and true Christianity is peaceful. To say otherwise is an outright lie.

Quote# 13358

Elsewhere it has been argued with success that Noah maintained the largest repository of animal DNA ever assembled in his "Ark". Researchers have concluded that Noah's greatest contribution was not the ark that he built with alien assistance but the monumental task of cloning every animal from the DNA samples which he saved and protected on the ark.

Interestingly, research has come to light in recent years that relates this cloning operation to the story of Ham and the uncovering of Noah's nakedness after Noah became drunk. Alternate theories abound. However students of scripture, archaeology, and crypto-history alike are coming to some definite conclusions about just what really happened to Noah and Ham after the flood.

Scholars working from papyrus and copper scrolls found at Qumran, Masada, and Megiddo had been able to piece together a basic account of just exactly what happened.

Noah was not cultivating grapes to get drunk. Noah was operating a sophisticated scientific operation designed to reconstitute animals from the DNA samples he posessed. Ham was a necessary participant. Through an ingenious scientific process lost to history. Ham would seed the DNA into Noah's body. Noah acted as an incubator for the animal zygotes until they reached a certain level of development. At that point they would be transferred to the uterus of a cow or antelope.

At any one time, a hundred or more zygotes were living free in Noah's abdomen. It was Ham's job to "impregnate" Noah with the cloned embryos as each batch was ready. What was unknown to Noah however was that Ham had saved DNA from a dubious source prior to the flood.

Prior to the flood, Ham had been in a homosexual relationship with a member of the Nephilim, the giants in the land for which God sent the flood in the first place. The Nephilim were fallen from heaven along with their leader Satan. Ham combined the DNA from himself and this Nephilim and produced a clone. This clone he introduced into the body of Noah. This is the sin of Ham.

Other Satanists however—cult Satanists—understand that Satan is very real indeed. To them, the sacrifices he demands are not symbolic at all.They believe that the blood sacrifice of innocence which Satan demands as the ultimate blasphemy and sign of devotion to himself must be very literal indeed. At various times during the year, but especially during the month of October, police across the country report finding the remains of animals—some with the blood drained, others with various organs missing, some carefully skinned while keeping the tortured creature alive. They are frequently found at sites which indicate that some form of ritual took place. When no altar or pentagram or other symbolism is in evidence, it is entirely likely that some neophyte or self-styled Satanist is simply practicing to make sure the “sacrifice” is letter-perfect for the ceremony.

Because of its innocence and frailty, a tiny child is viewed by these Satanists as the perfect sacrifice to their Master. The infant is seen as a representation of the Christ Child, and it is He whom they are blaspheming and symbolically destroying in the prolonged and brutal torture and slaying of the child. After the death of the baby, the members will all eat a portion of the little one’s heart and will drink its blood.

Halloween is also a prime recruiting season for the Satanists. Much as the government will plant undercover narcotic agents in various high schools to find out who is pushing or using drugs on campus, so some Satanists may plant kids at the schools who are there solely for the purpose of discerning potential members or victims among the students. The Dungeons and Dragons clubs are key hunting grounds for them, as are other groups and clubs based on medieval themes.

Church-sponsored “haunted houses” are also fertile recruiting centers. The Satanists watch for those kids who show a marked bent for the macabre and the sinister, and they invite them to a “real good” party being held elsewhere, which proves to be a lower-level ritual held for the purpose of initiating these kids into Satanism.

Quote# 130331

Yes, anything God commands is moral. And he may tighten or loosen that which he enforces, or that which he makes explicit. But he has encouraged us to think of him as consistent through his revelation. If you and I would like to be consistent, but cannot be--not to the imposed standards from outside, or even to our own standards (hypocrisy)--God is able to be so, and wills himslef to be. If something changes, relative to man in the commands of God, then something has changed about us--either in our being or our circumstances. In any case, God is also in control of those changes, and he has a morally sufficient reason for everything he does, and all that he expects of us, at whatever time he calls for it.

God is TRUE to himself, and more than we're able to be. God keeps his Word, and better than any of us. He chose to make covenant, and bind himself to promises in order to show himself faithful. Again, this is something he is free to do; and if he has done, who dares to charge him with an inconsistency? That he was supremely free, and now he is not because he made a promise? This is trying to bind God with an absurdity. But it is an internal, voluntary constraint. If he denies himself, the world goes out of existence. He is the only constraint on his own freedom; but it is his WILL to act precisely as he has. There isn't some "higher standard" by which he is held. The absurdity is in the puny creature, who tries to render God impotent or irrelevant by language-games.

There's all kinds of different standards of atheistic "morality," including cannibalism and Naziism. So, what complaint does the questioner have against such individuals or societies? He has none. He operates under a "might-makes-right" ultimate philosophy, which is guided only by what he hopes is a mindless evolutionary process that has selected him and his genes to triumph over lesser creatures, and lesser humans. If he is right about the world, then it makes perfect sense for him to get to the top of the heap, and try to live like an absolute monarch, impregnate all the women in his power, kill all his rival males (whoever he cannot make his obedient soldier, farmer, or slave-drone).

Saying there are untold "kinds" of Christians or Christian morality, is like saying there are as many "maths" as there are answers given to a given problem. The implication is that there is NO yardstick, there is NO subordination of a reader to an author's text because there's no such thing as successful communication of meaning. That is an absurd expectation, and it defies common sense and human experience. It is possible to analyze texts for their intrinsic meaning, as well as getting closer or farther away from that meaning. It is possible to agree to what a text means, while disagreeing with its content, or another analyst's judgment as to its worth. It's possible to gain consensus between several people, or even a majority of them, at least for a time. It is possible to analyze all of this, and to come to a "moral" conclusion on the whole.

In the end, you can expose the ridiculous bias of persons who simply "don't like" what the Bible has to say; as well as persuading the truly searching person that most of us have the tools (if not the will) to study the Bible for the message it contains. No one is really interested in the hater's biographical reasons for not being a Christian or accepting the Bible's message or morals. The student of Scripture is interested in the content of Scripture for what it says about itself. I am concerned for truth, and not interested in pluriform contrary opinions from those who may not share my passion and method of getting there.

One of the most ridiculous and persistent false claims made by armchair nutritionists, meatarian propagandists, and even academics, who really should know better, is that the human species is an "omnivore"; that is, it should eat both plant and animal matter.

In general, this error is based on the accidental, or perhaps intentional, confusing of the verbs "to be" and "to do". If the human "is" a natural omnivore, then we should have ALL the physical and biochemical equipment that is NECESSARY to run down, kill with our bare hands, tear asunder, eat, and properly digest, RAW animal prey, just as ALL natural omnivores, or carnivores, do. Just looking at our bodies will conclusively prove that we do not have the claws or talons necessary to catch and hold animal prey, and we do not have the sharp, shearing teeth necessary to tear, not chew, animal flesh. We are not fast enough to outrun and catch animals. Natural omnivores or carnivores do NOT chew their eaten flesh, they tear it into chunks and swallow them whole. We do not have the "constant tendency for the last upper premolar and the first lower molar to engage and form long longitudinal opposed shearing blades (the carnassials)", which are a common characteristic of natural carnivores and omnivores.

No human cultural-carnivore kills its animal prey with his/her natural equipment, nor do they eat their animal prey raw. I have challenged countless meatarians to do so in the past 30 years, and NONE have shown the courage of their conceptual convictions and done so. Why? Simply because we are NOT an "omnivore". In fact, we have strong anti-killing instincts. Try to kill an animal with your bare hands to demonstrate this.

Any second-grader could differentiate between the verbs "be" and "do", yet this important distinction is totally ignored by cultural carnivores, and even academics with PhD's, who foolishly claim that because humans have been DOing cultural-carnivorism for a long time, that somehow (never explained) magically, we ARE "omnivores". They want to believe that DOing modifies BEing. They fail to understand the profound difference between Nature, and inviolable Natural Laws, and silly, self-destructive local cultural customs. By their absurd and faulty logic: because some humans DO murder, and because murder has existed throughout human history, ALL humans ARE born murderers.

If one wanted to produce a logical test to see if the human was a natural omnivore, the procedure would be:
1> produce a detailed physiological and biochemical inventory of all animal species that are natural omnivores,
2> list the commonalties among them,
3> test this list against natural omnivores and other species to determine its discriminative abilities; i.e. test the test, and finally, and only if the test has been verified to be accurate and correct,
4> see if the human parameters fit this test or not.

Of course, this quite obvious test mechanism has not been established, and any unsupported references to human "omnivores", regardless of the source, are confirmations that only cultural whims are being reported, certainly NOT the imperative physiological and biochemical attributes.

Quote# 130359

Yahuah (God) created the heavens and the earth. He also made the lights of the sun, the moon, and the stars. He put the lights in the firmament to serve as signs.

And Yahuah said, "Let there be lights in the firmament to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years"
Genesis 1:14 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)]

One of those signs, The Great Sign of the Woman, will appear on September 23, 2017. That sign is the key to unlocking the timeline of other prophetic events revealed in the Book of Revelation.

The Woman is the constellation Virgo (Virgin). She represents the nation of Israel. She is described in the Book of Revelation 12:1-2:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
Revelation 12:1-2 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] .

The Great Sign of the Woman as described in Revelation 12:1-2 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] forms and lasts for a few hours. According to computer generated astronomical models, this sign has not yet occurred. It will occur once on September 23, 2017. It will never occur again. Refer to Mark Chiswell's video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXxVwpcXV0U

The predicted arrangement of the sun, the moon, and the stars that will be part of The Great Sign of the Woman can be seen using a computer generated astronomical model. (http://neave.com/planetarium/) We have that the sun is located in the region of the woman's upper torso. The moon is under her feet. The crown of twelve stars is above her head in the constellation Leo. The twelve stars comprise the nine major stars of Leo and the three "wandering stars" of Mercury, Mars, and Venus. The Woman is approximately 307 days "pregnant" (November 20, 2016 to September 23, 2017) with Jupiter, known to the Jews as the star of the Messiah. Jupiter appears in the lower torso, or womb region, of Virgo. Symbolically, the woman is pregnant with the Messiah. The Woman is at the end of a full term pregnancy, in labor, and about to give birth.

The Great Sign of the Woman is both a symbol and a sign. As a symbol, it represents the birth of the Messiah from the virgin of Israel. As a sign placed by Yahuah, it tells us where we are on the prophetic timeline. It places us in the fifth seal just twelve (12) days before the opening of the sixth seal. The sixth seal is the subject of the next section of this paper titled "The Red Dragon."

...The sign of The Red Dragon will appear in heaven after The Great Sign of the Woman. Note that the verse says that "The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born." This means that The Red Dragon will appear in heaven while the woman is still pregnant and crying out in pain as she is about to give birth. The Great Sign of the Woman will appear on September 23, 2017. The "pregnancy" of The Woman, discussed next, will end no later than October 13, 2017.

Jupiter, known to the Jews as the star of the Messiah, will exit Virgo (Virgin) on October 13, 2017 after having spent some 327 days (November 20, 2016 to October 13, 2017) in the "womb" region of that constellation. Refer to Mark Chiswell's video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXxVwpcXV0U. After that, The Red Dragon will have no more opportunity to "[stand] in front of the woman who was about to give birth." The Woman will no longer be "pregnant." The Red Dragon must make its appearance by October 13, 2017.

I was raised in a secular home, and surrounded by atheistic propaganda from an early age, whether it be from school or the media. Unsurprisingly, I became an atheist at the age of 12.

As the years passed and I truly tried to understand the world around me, I discovered a horrifying truth that had been hidden from me, hidden from everyone[...]

Atheists often say that they can truly live a happy, fulfilling life. Yet this is a lie, a deception which damns millions of souls to darkness.

While you revealed much in your articles, you have not destroyed the root.

Simply put, atheism destroys the possibility of personal identity, choice, and objective and subjective meaning.

Atheism inescapably leads to naturalism, and from naturalism follows atheism’s great skeleton which its followers try to keep hidden; determinism.

Determinism is inescapable if one is a naturalist, as all that exists is material and has come about by purely natural processes.

This means then, that the mind of man, our greatest treasure, is reducible to material bound by physical laws; namely, our thoughts, feelings, and actions are reducible to reactions of chemicals in the brain.

Few people realize, then, that this destroys all that makes us human. Namely; if our thoughts, feelings, and actions are simply chemical reactions in the brain, those reactions are simply the by-products of prior reactions forming an unbreakable chain which leads to the very beginning of the universe.

This means then, that whatever we do, we do because we have to. We cannot do anything other than what we do, it simply isn’t possible.

All actions are the result of prior actions in an unbreakable chain. We are no different than a cog in a watch or a falling domino.

There is no difference between the embrace of a loving husband and the violence of a vicious rapist, the actions of a doctor trying to save a life and the mass murderer who kills at whim, the actions of our greatest leaders and the inaction of a lazy sluggard.

Both are totally the same in atheism.

These people take posts off of Rapture Ready and numerous other Christian websites and put them on this site, so that they can be held up to ridicule.

First off, I don't know about law in regards to the internet, but is that even legal?

Secondly, it hurts to read the comments that these people make about stuff that we discuss very sincerely here. When I saw it, I was very grieved.

Let's pray for these misguided souls, that the Holy Spirit will work in them to bring them to Christ, before it is too late. It is terrible to see them so lost, and they all seem to be so full of hate, I just wish that would come to be full of Jesus' love.

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, has released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”
