Quote# 133905

I am eleven years old and just graduated from elementary school. My grandma, grandpa, and aunts all practice Falun Dafa. I was fortunate enough to spend this past summer with them, studying the Fa and learning the exercises. During the summer, I got rid of my 7-year addiction to video games. When I was younger, my grandma and grandpa took care of me because my parents were very busy. According to my grandma, I started listening to the lectures of Master Li before I could speak. I also imitated Grandma and Grandpa doing the exercises. When they sent forth righteous thoughts, I played quietly next to them. My grandma said that I was a healthy child and rarely got sick.

I left Grandma and Grandpa when I started elementary school. My parents have always been very busy with their work and often couldn't pick me up from school, so I had a key to our apartment and usually came home from school with no supervision. I started playing video games and became obsessed with them. Because I wanted to play video games, I did not want to do my homework and often slept late. I couldn't focus in school and had frequent headaches. My parents tried many ways to keep me from playing video games, but nothing worked. As time went by, I became irritable, overweight, and did not like any outdoor activity.

A few weeks ago, my aunt show me the following paragraph from “Fa Teaching Given at the New York Fa Conference Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Dafa's Spreading:”

“Yes, today’s video games are all made by people who are acting at the prompting of aliens. People think that those games were their own creations. But as I said earlier, people don’t know the source of the ideas they have that make them want to create those things. People have no awareness of what’s involved in their thought process at various levels, or how it is that foreign ideas get put into their minds. People are only aware of what happens at the surface level. Those games are harmful and poisonous to humankind, and are leading people to lose their humanity.”

I was shocked, and that made me determined to give up video games. I picked up my phone and started to delete the games on it. Suddenly, the screen blacked out. I asked Master for help and took out the battery. I then put the battery back in and turned it on. The games were deleted. A few days later, I was using an iPad and saw the video games on it. I couldn't help starting to play again. My aunt reminded me to strengthen my righteous thoughts and break away from video games. She said that our precious bodies should not be controlled by bad things. I immediately deleted all the games on the iPad.

Through studying the Fa, I started to understand that human society is like a mud puddle. Everyday people are attached to fame and self-interest and find society enjoyable, but it is actually very dangerous. Master has provided us with a ladder that can lead us to heaven. If we assimilate to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance through cultivation, we can climb that ladder and return to our true homes.

[=A comment on a video claiming "23 Minutes in Hell" is a Hoax=]

I believe Bill Weis and his encounter with Jesus and Hell. I don't understand why you are against his encounter? There have been many people who have died, literally for a certain amount of time, and then came back to life, and talked about hell. If you don't believe there are demons in hell tormenting people, you are deceived. The biggest lie the devil wants us to think are things like that (there is no torment, etc).?

Quote# 133888

Along with all of my Christian Brothers, I can declare that Jesus saves. Here is an account of the message Jesus gave to me when I was saved.

I can remember it clearly like it was just yesterday. I was swimming in the crystal, clear water off of Cabo San Lucas, when I realized I had forgotten to put my sun block. I turned around to head back when I saw a yacht with about twelve handsome men onboard. I wasn’t paying attention to where I was swimming and in a split second I cut my leg badly on a reef. I could see the blood and I knew I was in a bad situation. I yelled out to the boat, “Help!” I became faint and went underneath the water. I heard a voice say, “Do not covet your neighbors possessions.” I thought to myself, does this mean no more trips to Macy’s?
I found myself back on the surface and thought I saw someone walking towards me. I must have been delusional. I went underwater again saw my whole life pass in front of me. I came up and thought this would be last time I would see the sky. I went under the water thrice and felt a strong hand rescue me from the water.

I awoke to see several men surrounding me. One of the men steeped towards me and said, “I am Jesus and I have saved you from watery depths.” I didn’t know what to say and fell to my knees. Jesus said, “Bid me to come inside of you.” (Note: All of this was in Spanish, so it’s likely that some nuances have been lost). Jesus took me to a cabin under the deck. It was something that I will never forget. It was a powerful, jolting epiphany when Jesus entered me. We went back topside and had some wine, bread and cheese. Jesus liked to make wine and owns a vineyard in Baja California.

We sailed into port and before I left, I said, “Jesus what should I do?” Jesus said, “Enter the narrow gate, for if the gate is wide the way is easy. For if the gate is narrow, the way will be hard, that leads to life and those who find it are few. Be a fisherman of men. He that receives you receives me. I do not come in peace, but with a sword. Sow good seed and remember the playing field is the world.” I walked away feeling I had been reborn to spread his message and tell the story of how I invited Jesus into me and how he saved me from the watery depths.

Quote# 133915

Nearly fifty years ago, the British agnostic Bertrand Russell penned these words: “There is one very serious defect to my mind in Christ’s moral character, and that is that He believed in hell. I do not myself feel that any person who is really profoundly humane can believe in everlasting punishment” (Bertrand Russell, Why I Am Not a Christian).

Philosopher John Hick echoed those sentiments when he called hell “a perversion of the Christian gospel.” He believed the doctrine of hell attributed to God “an unappeasable vindictiveness and insatiable cruelty.”

We expect statements like that from fallen, unregenerate minds. But what do we do when we hear similar things from prominent, professing evangelical writers? “How can Christians possibly project a deity of such cruelty and vindictiveness whose ways include inflicting everlasting torture upon his creatures, however sinful they may have been? Surely a God who would do such a thing is more nearly like Satan than like God . . .” (Clark H. Pinnock, “The Destruction of the Finally Impenitent”).

It’s become popular today for professing evangelicals to join the ranks of Pinnock, atheists, and agnostics in protesting the doctrine of hell. They are preaching sermons, writing articles, and publishing books, and some are wandering into the comment threads of Christian blogs. Here’s a small sampling from Grace To You’s blog in our recent series on hell:

“What kind of God torments people for all eternity?”
“. . . Satan loves the false doctrine of eternal torment”
“[eternal torment is] cruel and unusual punishment”
“[eternal torment] makes God out to be a cruel tyrant,” “absolutely cruel and malevolent”
“How can you in your right minds even consider this to be justice?”
If the doctrine of hell as eternal, conscious torment hadn’t been the position of the Christian church for two millennia, it might be easy to think we’re seriously out of step—a bunch of mindless minions who worship a monster-god! But when you examine the biblical evidence, without an agenda, you’ll find we sound a lot like Jesus and the apostles.

So, how could someone who claims to be faithful to Scripture ridicule the idea of eternal punishment? What is at the heart of their rejection of a never-ending hell? It’s simple, really—they minimize the seriousness of human sin and guilt, and they distort the perfection of divine justice. That’s the crime of Protestant Liberalism and every false religion.

Minimizing the Sinfulness of Sin

To one degree or another, we’re all guilty of minimizing sin. I remember the first time I read the account of Lot’s wife. God turned her into a pillar of salt as she was leaving Sodom. Her crime? A backward glance (Genesis 19:26). Reading that story as an unbeliever provoked me to ask the question: “Was that really an offense worthy of death—turning your neck to take one final look at your home?” As I explored more of the Bible, other accounts of God’s judgment appeared equally capricious and severe to me.

Nadab and Abihu deviated from the priestly procedures. God consumed them with fire (Leviticus 10:1-2).
One man gathered wood on the Sabbath. God commanded Moses to stone him (Numbers 15:35).
Achan took a few forbidden items from the spoils of Jericho. God commanded Joshua to stone and then burn Achan along with his entire family (Joshua 7:24-25).
Uzzah kept the ark of God from falling into the mud by reaching out his hand and taking hold of it. God immediately struck him dead (2 Samuel 6:6-7).
Ananias and Sapphira lied to the apostles. God killed them both in front of the entire church. (Acts 5:1-10).
We often struggle to understand how something seemingly so trivial could enact such a severe judgment. Our flesh wants to cry out in protest, “That’s not fair!” But responses like that reveal our failure to grasp the depth of sin. We see only actions—a devoted father gathering firewood to keep his family warm; a zealous Israelite anxious to keep the Ark of God off the ground—but God sees things differently, more clearly, than we do. He sees our sin as insurrection, rebellion against His holiness (Exodus 31:14; Numbers 4:15). What’s more, He sees the hidden motives and intentions at the core of our actions (Matthew 5:28; Hebrews 4:12).

One of the most basic tenets of justice is that the punishment must fit the crime. So, if the ultimate punishment for those who die without Christ is hell, then what is the crime? What do men do to merit the eternal sentence of hell? Put plainly, they sin.

You may think that’s a small thing, but the way John MacArthur explains sin, it puts it in its proper perspective. Essentially, sin is “an act of treason against the Sovereign lawgiver and judge of the universe.” The Bible describes our sin as “rebellion,” “ungodliness,” “lawlessness,” “wickedness,” and an “abomination” (Leviticus 26:27; Isaiah 32:6; 1 John 3:4; Ezekiel 18:27; Proverbs 15:9). Sinners then, are traitors, refusing to love, thank, serve, and obey the God who gave them life, breath, and every good thing.

Sinners spurn God’s love, despise His sovereignty, mock His justice, and view His commands with contempt. They are thieves and murderers, stealing God’s glory and assaulting His holiness. In fact, as Martin Luther once remarked, if sinners had their way, they would dethrone and murder God, which is exactly what they did at Calvary (Acts 2:23). Viewed through the lens of Scripture, sin appears exceedingly sinful (Romans 7:13).

I find it ironic that those who protest the idea of eternal, conscious torment deride the doctrine with words like, “cruel,” “morally revolting,” “monstrous,” and “repugnant.” Why don’t they employ the same terms of outrage to describe sin? Simple: they fail to see as God sees. God finds our sin “cruel,” “morally revolting,” “monstrous,” and “repugnant,” and He’s absolutely right. If we can’t see our sin as God sees it, it stands to reason that we don’t see the just judgment of hell like He sees it either. We’re just going to have to trust Him.

Divine Justice

People who reject the doctrine of eternal hell also stumble over the justice of God. It seems unjust of God to cast someone into a lake of eternal fire for thirty years of sin. Is sin really that bad?

Yes, it is. In fact, you readily accept that there are escalating levels in the seriousness of offenses. For example, if you punch your neighbor, he may punch you back, slash your tires, or even report you to the police. If you assault your boss, he’ll fire you. If you strike a policeman, you’re in danger of getting tased, pepper-sprayed (or worse), and you’re definitely going to jail. Take it up a notch: if you even attempt to assault the President of the United States, you’re going to prison for a long, long time. And if you try those shenanigans with any other head of state, you’ll probably be executed.

Clearly, we live by an established principle—the seriousness of a crime is measured not only by its inherent nature, but also by the one offended. Furthermore, we readily accept the escalation of punishment, based on the status and position of the one offended. If that makes sense on a human level, why are we tempted to ignore the status and position of God? If we live by that principle on a horizontal level, why not on a vertical level?

Our sins have offended an infinitely glorious and holy Being, and punishment must correspond to that offense. God will by no means acquit the wicked (Exodus 34:6-7). He will give the unbeliever exactly what he deserves. Isaiah said “Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, for what he deserves will be done to him” (Isaiah 3:11). God warned the children of Israel: “If you do not obey Me, but act with hostility against Me, then I will act with wrathful hostility against you, and I, even I, will punish you seven times for your sins” (Leviticus 26:27-28).

The righteous Judge of all the earth will one day rise up and call every creature into account (Genesis 18:25; Hebrews 9:27; 1 Peter 4:5). He will open the books and mete out a just sentence for every sinful thought, word, and deed (Romans 2:5; Revelation 20:13).

We’ve all assaulted God (Romans 3:23), and we all deserve hell. Reject Christ, and hell is exactly what you’ll get. God will rise up in judgment and cast all unbelievers into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:14), and all creation will praise His justice. To accuse God of injustice for sentencing sinners to hell is the height of arrogance and audacity.

Yes, God’s judgment is unbearable, but it is never unjust (Genesis 4:13). And that is why “it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).

The Dope says we should offer evil Muslum invaders “the warmth of the love of Christ”. He can sing praises of Muslums till the cows come home, but doesn’t change reality. If he didn’t have that wall to protect him, the Muslums would have already got him. This Dope works for the Muslums, not his Christian brethren. And by the way, Italy has been struggling with poverty & unemployment for a long time. That is why their birth rate has lowered. Not so Muslums could swarm in & drag their economy down further.

Quote# 133906

I am a 15-year-old practitioner who has been practicing Falun Dafa for the past two years. I would like to share some of my experiences in cultivation. My grandmother is also a Falun Dafa practitioner. One day, two years ago, she fell from the window ledge while cleaning the glass windows. She was sent to the hospital and we were told she had bone fractures. She treated herself as a practitioner and returned home without any medical treatment.

Through doing the exercises and reading the Fa everyday, she recovered. Unlike other people, my grandmother did not suffer from a lot of pain either. I personally witnessed how miraculous Dafa is and decided to be a practitioner. Soon after I took up the practice, a new Lunyu was published. Grandma encouraged me to memorize this new publication by Master Li (the founder the Falun Dafa). It took me two nights to remember the teachings by heart. I am now memorizing Zhuan Falun whenever I have time. A fellow practitioner said to me, “If you can memorize the entire book, it will be very admirable.” I want to be a person who is able to do that.

My grandmother holds a Falun Dafa study group at her place. Many people come together to read at night and I join them. I was quite diligent when I stayed with grandma. I looked within whenever I ran into problems and was strict with myself in following the principles of Dafa. Once someone hit me quite hard while I was at school. I did not retaliate. My classmates were surprised. In the past I would have reacted angrily if someone hit me, but now I am a practitioner. Master taught us not to fight back when beaten or sworn at. I smiled at my classmates and told them that I'm a changed person.

On another occasion, a close friend lost her temper with me all of a sudden. I was puzzled as I did not do anything to upset her. I responded by giving her the cold shoulder. At home while reading Zhuan Falun, I came across this paragraph:

“If the person did not create this situation for you, how could you upgrade your xinxing? If both you and I are nice to each other and sit there in harmony, how can it be possible to increase gong? It is precisely because that person has created this conflict for you that there is this opportunity to improve xinxing, and you can make use of it to upgrade your own xinxing. Isn’t your xinxing raised this way?”

I realized that my response to my friend was wrong, and that I had human attachments such as jealousy, competitiveness, showing off and resentment. I made up my mind to get rid of them. I am a Dafa practitioner and must act by making up with my friend tomorrow. The next morning, just as I was going to look for her, she came rushing to me smiling. She apologized for losing her temper and asked me to forgive her. I thought to myself, “I should thank you for giving me an opportunity to improve my xinxing.”

Upon returning to my parent's home, I lost the cultivation group environment. I slacked off, watching TV programs and played computer games. However, Master did not give up on me. Time and again, I saw Master in my dreams. I knew Master was encouraging me to be diligent. In one dream, I saw Master watching me while I did the exercises. My posture was wrong and Master lifted my arms up slightly. I heard the sound of my bones cracking. I felt very light and relaxed. Words cannot describe how wonderful it felt!

During another dream someone called me into a room, but it was locked and I could not go in. After I made several attempts to go in, the person finally opened the door using a fine toothpick. Upon entering, I saw Master and practitioners sitting inside. There was a spot next to Master. He looked at me and made a gesture for me to sit in the empty spot. I woke up from the dream and I was very grateful to Master for his compassion. I was not able to go into the room initially, but Master opened the door and offered me salvation just like so many other practitioners. He does not want to give up on anyone, but if you cannot let go of human attachments, how can he bring you home? I was in tears when I thought of this.

I had another dream where I was chased by a group of people. I climbed over a wall and saw a black car driving towards me. The car stopped and I was captured. I was very scared and shouted for Master to help me. Just then a gust of wind blew me away from the car and I was saved. I knew Master was constantly watching over his practitioner. He has given us too many things and the best way to repay him would be to do as he told us to.

Although I am a young practitioner, I feel that I should not miss the opportunity to talk to people about Dafa. Once a practitioner asked me if I wanted to come along with them to give out informational flyers. I said yes, but it was raining. I prayed for the rain to stop and in the end, it did not rain that night. We gave out all our flyers and helped people understand the facts about Falun Dafa.

Kenyan official says male lions who had sex 'must have seen gay men behaving badly' and should be separated

The country's 'moral policeman' Ezekial Mutua says the animals must have been inspired by seeing gay men and should receive therapy

Two lions spotted in a gay sexual encounter must have seen a homosexual couple "behaving badly" in their park and should be separated and given counselling, an official in Kenya said.

The animals were photographed after one mounted the other in a secluded bush area of the Masai Mara game reserve in the south-west of the African country.

Ezekial Mutua, the chief executive of the Kenya Film Classification Board, said the pair must have been influenced after they viewed a human same sex couple.

He claimed that was the only explanation for their “bizarre” behaviour, on the basis that lions don't watch TV or movies to see such acts there.

But he added it was also possible that they were driven by evil forces, saying that “demons also possess animals”.

Mr Mutua is an infamous figure in Kenya, dubbed the country's "moral policeman" for his controversial and often anti-LGBT public statements. He has in the past banned "pro gay" movies and cartoons – because he believed it “glorifies” such relationships.

He spoke out over the two gay lions after seeing photos of the pair in a rare display of such behaviour captured by wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein.

He told the Nairobi News: “We do not regulate animals, but this is a first and interesting to hear that there are two male lions in love. Some research needs to be done.

"And also I wish I can get the bio to confirm the two lions were actually male, because it is not normal.”

He added: “These animals need counselling, because probably they have been influenced by gays who have gone to the national parks and behaved badly. I don’t know, they must have copied it somewhere or it is demonic. Because these animals do not watch movies.”

Mr Mutua argued that homosexuality was caused by evil spirits and hinted that the gay lions could also have been possessed by the same source.

He said: “The demonic spirits inflicting in humans seems to have now caught up with animals.”

Gay sex between lions is rare but not unheard of and happens elsewhere in the animal kingdom.

Some biologists claim same-sex relations have been spotted in 1,500 different species, and reliably recorded in a third of these cases – or roughly 450 species.

Great Leader has delivered a message for all of us, there have been recent record low temperatures and thus global warming is impossible. Donald Trump can not only debunk what a team of "scientists" have been claiming for years in an instant, but also do it in just one sentence. And people say I'm ridiculous for saying we're all lowly compared to him. The man can solve problems scientists couldn't solve for years in an instant and explain them in most simple ways possible, meaning that he is literally the 21st century Albert Einstein.

Feel free to praise him for his greatness.

I think we should take this as a valuable lesson and stop trying to think for ourselves. Donald Trump is far superior to us and thus will always make a smarter decision on every problem. Why is it that everyone keeps trying to come up with something better than the highest man in the world with such confidence? That should be seen as treason because the whole point of leaders is to do the thinking for everyone else.

You want to know what's happening in the world? Follow Great Leader's Twitter. He will update you with every event in the world in just a few words. Everyone else drags out the simple truth to make themselves sound smart, but these are the same dumb people who thought global warming was real. Real intelligence isn't dragging things out, it's simplifying them. Remember that before you make any more claims against Great Leader that should be seen as treason.

Peace! Make America great again!

I learnt from an early age that the things I pray about turn out much better than the things I neglect to pray about. So I have witnessed to some personal answers to prayer - including the truly miraculous healing of my wife's father from an aortic aneurysm (after we were told he was dying with just a few minutes left to live) and the finding of a contact lens dropped on a grassy field (I did not even have to search - my finger was guided straight to it).

So whenever I feel worried or anxious about anything, I try to remember to pray about it because I know that the prayers I say in faith do get answered in wonderful ways. And I am certain that if more people in this world were able to pray with faith in the name of Jesus Christ, this whole world would be a better place.

Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution (often referred to as The Theory of Survival of the Fittest) describes the positive effects resulting from any “pressure” on an animal species that removes the least fit among the species and allows only the most fit of the species to reproduce. Many of us are well aware of this “Survival of the Fittest” theory, but few are aware that Darwin also makes mention of the negative effects resulting from unlimited reproduction of a species’ least fit when the weak, the lazy, and the stupid are left unchecked.

We like to think otherwise, but our species, Homo sapiens-sapiens, isn’t that long “out of the trees” and the same laws of nature that affect all of God’s creatures apply equally to us. If we were to observe any other species that had been allowed to reproduce without limitations, we would know immediately what the consequences will be.

Whenever the weak; lazy; and stupid of a species are allowed to reproduce unimpeded by predators that feed off the weak; lazy; and stupid, they soon outnumber the strong, productive, and intelligent. When the weak/lazy/stupid dominate the gene pool, the entire population becomes weak/ lazy/stupid, (Democrats/Socialists/Communists) and then the population collapses.

I have a great story for you peoples.
i was in my shower and i was talking to myself, as if i was on a talk show and I was telling someone what heaven was like. I didn't realize it before but I now realize that my heart was "reacting" in a way that lets me know now that i was seeing heaven in my mind and narrating what was going on out loud. It started with me standing along side the lord In a big, gold hallway, decorated with pillars of pure gold and a gate with a big pearl/dimond like gem in the middle (note* this was not the pearl/opal gates (I cant remember which)). and I ask god, who was resembling jesus with a bit of a wider head (no offense to him) and he says "those are the gates to heaven" and we walk toward them and months previously I had an encounter with St. micheal (in spirit form) so I see st. micheal on one Side of the gates and another on the other side. so when I see him he, no joke, flipped his head back and said "sup" (I now understand that if you have a personal relationship with god, his angles get to know you too, hence why that gesture fit my personality, being a bit unorthodox and having and archangel said "sup" to me) I then snap my fingers, post and then say "hey I know you!" and then he says "I know I met you!" and I go "I know!" and god snaps his fingers, points with both hands and says "and there's heaven" and I look and my law hits the floor (figuratively). i didnt see it but i know that all I can say is "more beautiful than we can imagine" is and understatement times literal infinity. IT. WAS. BEAUTIFUL. So im walking with the lord and while im doing this heaven is being portayed in my mind as i saw it in a video once. and because I do a lot of thinking and hypothosizing so I ask the lord what im right about. he gives me four theories and hints at what they are without telling me spesifically what they were. he tells me "this is incorrect, these two are correct, and this isn't" and im walking with the lord and talking at the Same time and when the lord gets to a reasonable ending of the conversation (example: not cutting me off) he points and tells me "AND THERE'S THE ANIME!!"
this is the big part of what I mean to do in this mesaage. the lord later tells me he showed me this to motivate people to seek heaven (GENIUS....... GO FIGURE!!) i look to see a small gold shed and 4x8 feet long (DONT BE FOOLED). he opens the door and for the third time, my jaw drops.
take a minute, right now, to invision all of the anime in heaven and all I Can say to you are these short four words "your wrong, there's more". I walked into a FULL ON DIMENSION OF NOTHING BUT ANIME!!! A FULL REALITY OF NOTHING BUT ANIME!!! IT. WAS. BEAUTIFUL!! YOU WOULD SEE A FIGHT FROM AN EPISODE (goku vs ginyu in my case) and look behind you and see it happening. all of the anime on earth was there except for all forms of blasphemous shows and/or hentai. AND THAT LEAVES A LOT OF ANIME. for example, if there were a scene or character like then the scene would be cut out and the character would not exist there. you would see action figures, movies, REAL LIVE ANIME CHARACTERS WALKING AROUND JUST CHILLING THERE!!! IT WAS AMAZING!! anyway I came to tell you about that because it was and is the will of the lord and I am his servant. god bless all of you and ill be the one eating ramen with naruto!?

Third, if God does not exist, the universe can have no mental properties. It is a machine made of particles, but one thrown together without a designer, serving no purpose. If so, when one unintentional byproduct of the machinery of the world is the bewildered ape called Man, the machinery of his brain cannot be designed by a designer for a purpose. At best, the purpose of preserving the man and his bloodline might emerge spontaneously by a statistical elimination of every pre-human man-ape whose brain chemistry made A equal to Non-A, or twice two equal five. But then we have no evidence of pre-human man-apes each with his several systems of non-operative logic and mathematics, and no reason to believe that natural selection would make the twice-two-is-five apes die off quicker than the twice-two-is-four.

I love reading the comments and watching people turn into screaming idiots driven entirely by the stupid emotional part of their brain that screams "WAAHH ITS A KID YOU MUST PROTECT THEM WAHH".

Yes. His ridiculous anti-prostitute agenda is disgusting, and so is his belief that child rapists should be vindicated if they pay the child money for sex. But so what? There have been, time and time again, fundies who have advocated far worse things haven't even got into the top 100:

93496: Thinks that atheists should be hunted like animals, with bounties given out for every atheist head collected.

102554: Thinks that atheists shouldn't have rights, and uses completely 100% made-up "statistics" to support that theory

108796 and many others: Thinks that Hitler should have won the war, killing every last Jew in existence.

All of these would have horrible, horrible implications for the world at large, and yet because they don't touch on loaded topics such as children they are completely ignored apart from a few snarky comments. Calm the hell down.

Eugenics is natural and approved worldwide. Eugenics is natural. We see it in selecting crops for food, and in animal husbandry where certain breeds are selected for specific jobs or abilities.

The idea that eugenics will destroy variety is incorrect. Dogs came from wolves. Wolves still exist, as do hundreds of different dog breeds. The same can be said for cats and plants.

Even now, we select the best possible mate we can. This is natural. Eugenics simply enhances those traits we find desirable. These traits can be altered over successive generations if needed. The only people who are afraid of eugenics, are those who are concerned their genes will not be passed on into posterity.

im trying to live for Jesus and he threatens and tortures me all day, make Jesus give you sign before you do something for him cause Jesus is a liar

My Favorite Things About Angelfire

Jesus destroys his children like he did JOB
get saved and God will try to make you perish to laugh at you
Jesus has lied to me many time

Jesus entered me like a body my perfec size

4-20-2007-right now God is teasing me by winking at me, I keep seeing a fire colored eye winking at me and it hurts me and he wont stop and he told me that he wants to make me hate him from the heart, I keep seeing this eye wink at me and it does somehting to my heart, and sometimes happens every bunch of seconds, and im being teased by this, and I just heard this, "God is c asting you out, this is killing all day long, till, you backslide, or, perish, either, but one, saith the LOrd, I want to make, an example out of you, quit, or be forced out, for blaspheme, not walking in circles, and spinning when stopped, saith the LOrd". I guess hell awaits for me, make the most of your walk. I was told earlier about making the exalted abased, and abased exalted.walking in circles is, get out of van, walk in circles into store, spin around and around while in line, nmaking coffee, while being arrested, in court, pumping gas.....Sounds to me like you want me in hell O Lord God, and one replaced the other, and you knew no one could do either. I did and it despaired me so much, I did not even want to get out of van, so God knew it would effect me like that, and oviously wanted hell for me. God me one way or the other. I was told many times that abatement continues till I dont want to live for Jesus anymore from the heart. That means keep pushing me out till !I dont want to come back, and I would see Jesus and he would put new hearts in me so I could go on, and sometimes I was so wounded, it would take about 3 or 4 new hearts...I just laughed today and God let me know he did not like it and I just wonder, who can be saved. KIlling all day is being driven out, teased, thrown in rage, till wrath sets in, and you dont want the LOrd whenlike that. God often gets me so mad on purpose that I cant stand still. Ive seen Jesus in visions and he said things like, "bob, I hate you man". I beleive it. maybe God will love you to heaven..
Jesus tells me he wants to throw me away after I served on 5-8-2010-bob you can not let me do what I want and that is to throw you away after you served, fast untill death, bob you are being made fun of all over, the world, cause God is coming against you but they know I will do it to them, saith the Lord,

The DDR had much greater problems after the war than West Germany. For starters most of the war reparations to Russia were paid by the DDR. The allies cancelled reparations pretty quickly after the war which was a massive fuck you to Russia as the total damage during WW2 to Russia was estimated at more than $100 billion dollars. Much heavy industry was stripped down and transported to Russia.

The fighting was also much more severe in the DDR. There was far greater reconstruction that had to take place to begin with as the east of the country was historically underdeveloped compared to west Germany.

These factors meant that the DDR couldn't compete with west Germany in areas such as wages and consumer goods. The wall was built and border controls strengthened because huge amounts of working age people were leaving the DDR for a "better life". The DDR had given them free education and then they were simply leaving and it was having a major effect on their ability to develop.

There were also much more practical reasons for closing the border. The Germany was the centre of the cold war. Why would you let spies and saboteurs into the country. (There was evidence of sabotage to key infrastructure).

I think the Berlin Wall was justifiable considering the context of the situation at the time. The DDR was not he'll on earth the country offered affordable living, good education and had very high living standards in general. It just couldn't compete with West Germany because of the multiple issues that the country faced.

Come on people waky,waky Democracy comes from the devil, There is, no, repeat, no, room in gods house for democracy. Gods house is an army (the army of god) there is no right of voting under any circumstances. God says it, thats the end of it, either get into line or get lost, No army votes for who gets to be in command. God promotes and demotes but he alone makes these deccsions. So as far as this ministry goes god promotes and you tow the line, like it or lump it thats how it is.
To ask for a right of vote on mod's is showing a lack of spiritaul authority and matuirty so why would one want to consider your request, that's in like, of the devil saying, Eve, have you considered this.
I would piont out I am neither a supporter nor have any involvement with this ministry, other than recently signing on as a member.

For example, if we have survival of the fittest, then there would only be one specie left. This would have to be a plant, because all animals eat plants, and so to have an animal left would mean at plant would have to be left, and that means two species. Furthermore, it would not only have to be one specie of plant left, but if it's truly survival of the species, only one individual plant.

In my ideal world, if your child tests positive for a deadly or debilitating genetic disease like fatal familial insomnia, Huntington's or fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, the mother shall be given two options. Gene editing or abortion.

Pentacostal with a level head here. The practice of faith healing, while surrounded by skepticism, is scripturally founded. Isaiah 53 says that by Jesus' stripes, we were healed at calvary. In mark 16, Jesus tells us to not only go out and make disciples, but to go and heal the sick, raise the dead, perform miracles, etc. In James 5, Paul instructs people to lay hands on the sick and that they will recover.

I've seen many people healed by the power of prayer, be it mental or physical. I've seen friends walk into church services on crutches and leave in perfect condition. There are circumstances in which a medical outcome can only be attributed to God, for there is no physical explanation. Is it a perfect science? Absolutely not. Why does prayer not work sometimes? I couldn't begin to tell you. I do know, however, that there is healing power provided to anyone who believes for it. As for tongues being a sign of salvation, are you sure you're not confusing it with being an initial sign of the baptism of the holy spirit?

Islam is NOT a religion, because it calls for the murder of innocents. It is fair game in my book, and it will remain so until the fools decide it's time to grow up.
