4 Unexpected Reasons Why Demons Have Greater Faith Than Many Churchgoers

I was recently reflecting on a conversation that took place a few years ago. A young man approached me to receive some badly-needed words of counsel. As I listened to some of his underlying struggles, it was clear that he really didn't have an intimate relationship with Jesus.

After dialoging for a while, I was compelled to ask where he stood in terms of his faith. He anxiously shifted in his seat and mumbled something along the lines of the following: "I know about Jesus and what He did on the cross. I believe the Bible has a lot of truth in it. What more is there to say?"

Although I didn't know him all that well prior to this conversation, I had observed his struggles from a distance. It would have been hard to miss the sporadic church attendance and his continual disengagement during the times of worship. His participation in the things of God was, at best, marginal. Although claiming to be Christian, darkness was all over him.

Under the unction of the Spirit, I asked him once again whether he truly had faith in God. Although insisting that he did, I could hear the hesitation in his voice. It was clear that he was struggling. Somehow I wanted to enable him to move out of this place of difficulty and trouble, but he wasn't going to do so if he didn't see where he stood with God.

If I hoped to get somewhere with him, I knew I would have to shock him. I felt like he needed to be overwhelmed with the futility of his present position. Yet, in order to do this, I would have to take a different approach. So I felt inclined to say something I had never uttered before.

I looked him and said, "I am convinced that the demons have greater faith than you!"

As you know, that's not the kind of statement people like to hear. Just as soon as these words tumbled from my mouth, I could see the lines on his face tighten. It was obvious that he recoiled at my observation. I honestly expected as much.

To move this strategy further, I knew I was going to have to clarify my point. Though it was hard to receive, I explained that Satan and his minions are more convinced of Jesus' identity and role than many churchgoers. This is an unpleasant truth that needs to be confronted from time to time.

Come on, how dynamic is one's faith, if the faith of demons is actually greater?

1. Demons Believe Jesus Is The Son Of God

I pointed out that early in the gospels, even before the disciples were convinced of His messianic role, demons publicly declared that Jesus was the Son of God. Scripture reveals the following:

"Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, 'You are the Son of God'" (Mark 3:11).

While many so-called "followers" struggle with who Jesus is, evil spirits are already firmly convinced of His status and position before the Father. They have no doubt that Jesus is truly the Son of God. It concerns me when the demons might be more assured of Jesus' role than we are.

2. Demons Read And Quote The Bible

I continued with this crazy assertion; suggesting that Satan and the hordes of hell actually know the Bible. This may seem unbelievable, but the forces of darkness are thoroughly convinced that scripture is true. In one disturbing example, Satan actually quotes from Psalm 91:11-12 in an attempt to undermine Jesus.

"The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 'If you are the Son of God,' he said, 'throw yourself down from here. For it is written:' ‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone'" (Luke 4:9-11).

While unwilling to submit to the admonition and guidance of the Bible, demons have absolutely no qualms about its truth. They understand that every word written in its pages will be brought to bear upon creation. It is only a matter of time before every "jot and tittle" is fulfilled. That is more than can be said about backslidden churchgoers. They not only struggle with reading the Bible, they are also conflicted about what it is saying. There is something wrong when "Christians" neither know, nor value what God is saying.

3. Demons Believe In The Final Judgment

I went on to explain to this young man that demons are also convinced about God's judgment and establishment of righteousness in the earth. Even prior to Jesus' death and resurrection, evil spirits were already persuaded that wickedness was on its last leg. They actually expected to be punished. A few of the demons publicly declared the following to Jesus:

“What do you want with us, Son of God?” the demons shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?” (Matthew 8:29)

I've met churchgoers unwilling to accept the reality of the final judgment. While demons believe God will subjugate all evil, some lethargic, pew-sitters aren't so sure. They are expecting appeasement, not eradication.

4. Demons Believe And They Tremble

Finally, I explained that the evil spirits believe in God and have such an awareness of that truth that it elicits an vigorous response. Imagine, their faith in the reality of God actually causes a tangible reaction to take place. The scriptures boldly declare the following:

"You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that–and shudder" (James 2:19).

The Apostle James suggests that the demons' faith in God is so intense that it causes "physical manifestations" to erupt. They quiver and shake in the revelation of His glory. That is more than I can say about many churchgoers. Many so-called followers of Jesus claim to believe in God but there is absolutely no manifestation of that reality in their lives.

Understand, that the demons believe in God and the reality of His purposes. They know who Jesus is and exactly what He accomplished on the cross. They believe in scripture, salvation, and the final judgment. They believe in God, but are unwilling to change their allegiance or submit to His wonderful plan.

By the time I was done talking, the young man understood what I was saying. He became quiet and began to tear up. The gravity of my words began to grip him. I offered to pray for him and bring a deeper sense of the presence of God. He, of course, agreed.

Like this young man, all of us need to search our hearts and determine whether our faith is greater than the faith of demons. I know that it's easy to dismiss all of this, but if you were to lay out where you stand today, what would we find?

Is your faith truly greater?

Quote# 126016

Denying the Divinity of Jesus is Evil

Matthew 9:4-8
Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, 'Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? Which is easier: to say, "Your sins are forgiven," or to say, "Get up and walk"? But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.' So he said to the paralysed man, 'Get up, take your mat and go home.' Then the man got up and went home. When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to man.

A paralysed man and his friends trusted Jesus for healing (Matthew 9:1-3). But when Jesus saw his faith, He forgave his sins - causing an indignant muttering by the religious leaders. They thought it was blasphemy (because only God could forgive sins). Even though they did not speak loudly, Jesus knew exactly what they were thinking and saying; and He condemned their thoughts as being 'evil'.

That may seem rather strong. He could have said that they 'misunderstood'; but to say 'evil' aligned them with the Evil One (the Greek word used is a title, meaning 'The Evil'). And, of course, Jesus was right. To say that Jesus is not God who is able to forgive sins, is a blasphemy in itself. These verses need to be taken seriously by everybody who denies the divinity of Jesus Christ. Such an idea is not simply a theological interpretation or a matter of personal belief: it defines a person's true relationship with God. That applied even to the respected clerics who said that Jesus was not God: they were not only wrong but had evil hearts. They were on the side of the devil, even though they did not realise it.

It is easy to say anything, but how will anybody know if it is true? How would they know that Jesus really could forgive sins? So He set them a riddle. Which is easier to say - 'Your sins are forgiven' or 'Get up and walk'? They thought that commanding a paralysed man to walk, was harder. So Jesus did instruct the man to walk ... and he walked home with his bed roll under his arm. That divine power proved that Jesus had authority to forgive. Whatever the religious teachers thought, the crowd got the message and praised God for Jesus.

The identity of Jesus is the key to eternal life (John 6:28-29), salvation (Acts 4:12) and peace with God (Romans 5:1). The miracles were not just an expression of God's compassion but divine identity. Jesus was God in a human body and it is an evil thing to deny that. If He is not God then He could be ignored and faith in Him treated as a consumer option. But because He is God then we are accountable to Him: and to deny His divine identity puts us on the same side as the devil. It is a hard thing to say to friends and we will need wisdom as to how to speak, but it shows how urgently we should pray for our friends and colleagues. Teaching people the identity of Jesus and how to be saved through Him is the most precious responsibility in the world. If you know the message - pass it on!

Prayer

Holy Father God. Thank You that Jesus revealed His true identity as a man who was also fully God. I repent of treating His identity so lightly or even doubting His divine authority. Please help me to delight in in the deity of Jesus Christ and honour Him as my Saviour, Lord and Judge; and to tell other people who He really is. In His Name. Amen.

Above: Even children's shows have been saturated with New Age occultism, all conditioning the masses to receive the coming antichrist. This stuff is real folks! It's actually very simple, and nothing to be scared about if you're a born again Christian. 1st John 4:4 states, "Greater is He (Jesus) that is in you than he that is in the world." The god of this world is no match for the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. That's why the church will be removed from the world before the Tribulation period (i.e., a Pretribulation rapture), because we'll expose the antichrist on the spot if we're still here.

Hating heterosexuals and hating homosexuals is not the same thing. It’s like saying hating Christians and hating Satanists is the same thing. It’s not.

Heterosexuals are necessary for the production of our own species and our society, and that same group is also the backbone of how society was built. They are also moral.

The other group is a perverted, pointless, and degenerate group who’s behavior and permissible attitudes bring about cultural decadence and death. They are a symbol of cultural marxism.

Spare me your egalitarian horseshit. Homos are dissolute. They are a cancerous blight on well-to-do, white societies.

Antisemitism is a plague on the earth, and this article will explain why, but we must first precisely define “Semite” to identify what “antisemitism” actually is. “Jew-hatred” is probably the most commonly accepted shorthand version, invoking a tragic and ugly historical reality in the western world. But the deeper meaning of “antisemitism” is profoundly spiritual and actually indicts many Torah-faithless Jews who unrighteously wield the term as weapon. Their power to smear others with the antisemite brush suppresses scrutiny and criticism of their beliefs and acts that defy God and defile His Creation. Their blatant abuse of that power is itself a form of antisemitism in that it breeds resentment and hostility in the society that all Jews must then suffer.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), for example, is a predominantly Jewish organization. At its founding in 1971, it’s target was hate groups like Nazis and the KKK, both strongly antisemitic by anyone’s definition. Understandably, it’s donor base is reportedly largely Jewish also. Like many Christians, I supported the SPLC goals in those days, perceiving that my Jewish spiritual cousins were acting upon shared Biblical values. Later, however, when the SPLC began to define opposition to homosexuality as hate, Bible believing Christians and Torah-believing Jews were equated with Nazis, and my ministry was libeled as a hate group, as was the group “Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality” (JONAH) which the SPLC successfully sued and shut down in liberal New Jersey.

Public awareness of its malign transformation grew slowly, but today the name SPLC is widely associated with the militant defense of homosexual sodomy and the rejection of God and sexual normalcy. The Christian majority, whose prior sympathy for the SPLC helped it amass its now legendary financial war-chest, is shocked that those resources are now being used to persecute those most faithful to the Torah truths that once defined us as co-stewards of America’s Judeo-Christian cultural consensus.



Worst and most destructive of all is the overt promotion of sexual perversion, the insane ultimate outworking of the fear-driven impulse to secularize society that, for example, the SPLC’s fundraising so skillfully exploits. Inexcusably, and inexplicably, that has become a defining cultural goal of many American Jews (and leftist Christians) in media, academia, government and the business world … I issue a challenge to the American Jewish community to stop ignoring the antisemitism coming from your own people. Stop funding the SPLC hate group. Stop using your enormous power and resources to undermine Biblical values. Start recognizing the extent to which your rejection of your own Torah’s guidance needlessly fosters resentment and hostility toward you.

You have greatly influenced the rise of secularism and its consequences. I invite you to help undo that damage through the mutual reestablishment of our Judeo-Christian moral heritage.

It’s not that Donald Trump is all that perfect of a guy. We all know he’s not. And we know that he’s not necessarily perfect in every way that we would like. That’s not how God works. He works through the ones he chooses. We don’t choose them. All we have to do is recognize them and when you recognize a chosen one and you have the discernment to know that they’ve been chosen and know that that’s the will of God, then your life will be blessed. And if you come against the chosen one of God, you are bringing upon you and your children and your children’s children curses like you have never seen. It puts a holy fear in me.

"life isn't fair, get over it" - this is precisely the BIGGEST problem that can't be looked over. Genetic disparity is INHUMAN (long explanation)

I just hate when normshits say this. "life isn't fair, get over it. work on loving yourself blahblahblah" how do you gain the motivation for anything when you know that there are objectively superior and objectively inferior genetics withing the same species?

Humans are NOT born equal. This should concern people way more than it does. Its WORSE than the differences between being born a king vs being born a peasant, because at least, trough revolution, peasants could dethrone the king.

Its enraging that with the SAME socioeconomic background, humans, and specially males, lead radically different lives according to their genetics. It's so FUCKING UNFAIR, that there is a unwritten genetic hierachy that matters even MORE than socioeconomic background. For example. Jeremy meeks, who came from EXTREMELY LOW socioeconomig background with crimes included, has a better life than most upper-middle class average genetics males.

Ill explain how the hierachy works: the more you can be surpsassed in looks (genetics) by other males, the worse your life will be.

-If you can be surpassed by 2 points (so you are around a 6.5, being 9 the highest), give up on love, comittment and loyalyu.

-if you can be surpassed by 4 points (you are a 4.5) give up on true desire from the opposite sex. You also get way less help and respect from people.

-If you can be surpassed by 5 points (3.5) just give up on any contact at all with opposite sex, and also give up greatly on your ability to form social circles and friends. You get no respect at all, will be probably be actively bullied instead of helped, and at this point even people whose work is to attend you (baristas, cashiers, shop sellers) will already give you a different, less helpful treatment.

-If you can be surpassed by 6 poiints just LDAR because nothing will go well for you in human interaction.

I don't get why what happens to me when seeing how different lives are because of the way you are born doesnt happen to more people, specially normies: My blood boils. Even when sharing the same family environment, shame school, same job, same salary, same everything, two males will lead radically different lives if one is an incel and one is a chad genetics wise. HOW IS THAT FAIR?, ITS A FUCKING INJUSTICE.

Blessed genetics people are allowe way more things than lesser people. A chad can play dungeons and dragons in front of everyone, collect trading cards, brag about his new 2X graphics card ultra gaming pc and tell everyone about the cosplay conventions he goes and he will actually get people interested in those topics. An incel will be mocked and bashed just for saying he watches some mainstream anime. Both the chad and incel coming from same family, same school, same "opportunities", one is treated like a second class citizen compared to the other.

Next time some normie criticizes monarchy or differences between upper and lower socioeconomic classes because "they live differently just because they were born higher or lower class", remind them on how genetics are the GREATEST thing that separates fellow human lifes quality at birth.

I can't fucking stand unfairness. Normies who tell people to get over this shit and "grow up" and suck it up should drop dead.

A nightclub in Tunisia has been shut down after footage emerged of a DJ playing a dance remix of the Muslim call to prayer, officials say.

Video shared on Sunday from the Orbit Festival in the north-eastern town of Nabeul sparked outrage on social media sites.

The governor of Nabeul, Mnaouar Ouertani, said that the club would "remain closed" until further notice.

An investigation has begun into the incident.

The footage shows clubbers at a party on Friday dancing to music played by two European DJs near the popular seaside resort of Hammamet.

The music included a dance version of the call to prayer, the religious act that Muslims perform five times a day.

"After confirming the facts, we decided to close this nightclub," Mr Ouertani said.

He said that the club's manager had been detained "for violation against good morals and public outrage against modesty," adding that an investigation was under way.

"We will not allow attacks against religious feelings and the sacred," Mr Ouertani said.

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson railed against a supposed “left-wing bias” in the media, the entertainment industry, and academia, lamenting that gays and lesbians have “infiltrated” such institutions and are now using them to dominate society.

“We have given the ground to a small minority,” he said. “You figure, lesbians, one percent of the population; homosexuals, two percent of the population. That’s all. That’s statistically all. But they have dominated—dominated the media, they’ve dominated the cultural shift and they have infiltrated the major universities. It’s just unbelievable what’s being done. A tiny, tiny minority makes a huge difference. The majority—it’s time it wakes up.”

Robertson shared that he is working with actor Kevin Sorbo on taking back the culture: “So what are you gonna do? Kevin Sorbo brought me some scripts so I just finished reading some scripts. I got one that I think would make a pretty good movie. I’m going to talk to Kevin to see what he thinks. We gotta make some more movies.”

James Dobson, a conservative Christian leader who helped found two anti-LGBT groups, has a suggestion for those who object to transgender women’s presence in women’s restrooms: Shoot them.

“If you are a married man with any gumption, surely you will defend your wife’s privacy and security in restroom facilities,” Dobson writes in a column published this week on the far-right site WND. He imagines such scenarios as “a strange-looking man, dressed like a woman … peering over toilet cubicles to watch your wife in a private moment” and “men who walk in unannounced, unzip their pants and urinate in front of [little girls].”

“If this had happened 100 years ago, someone might have been shot,” he continues. “Where is today’s manhood? God help us!”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints needs their members to give their 10 percent tithing money to the church so much that they don’t care if your children go hungry.

Patheos noticed that over the weekend at the Mormon’s biannual General Conference elder Valeri V. Cordón gave a speech demanding the church’s money. He explained that as a child he worked in his father’s factory during school vacations.

“The first question my father always asked after I received my salary was, ‘What are you going to do with your money?'” he recalled. “I know the answer and responded, ‘Pay my tithing and save for my mission.'”

His father asked him the same question each time but he clarified that he had already learned the lesson because his father couldn’t buy food for him after a civil war in Guatemala. He went hungry often times because his parents had to pay the church.

“One day, during those difficult times, I heard my parents discussing whether they should pay tithing or buy food for the children,” he told the audience. “On Sunday, I followed my father to see what he was going to do. After our Church meetings, I saw him take an envelope and put his tithing in it. That was only part of the lesson. The question that remained for me was: what we were going to eat!”

Jesus Christ spoke frequently about the church caring for the poor. “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God,” Christ said in Luke 6:20-21.

Earlier in Luke, Christ is quoted telling his followers, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Reports indicate the Mormon church earns $7 billion each year from the required tithing. No person can become a member of the Mormon church without agreeing to pay the required 10 percent tithing.

The Episcopal Church in the United States is a form of Satanic worship disguised as Christianity. Filled to the brim with pomp and circumstance, unmitigated popery, and other such degenerate behaviors as allowing same-sex "marriages," this "church" is responsible for sending people to Hell.
History

King Henry VIII wanted an annulment because his wife bore not a son, but daughters. When the pope did not grant this divorce, Henry stormed off and separated the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church and therefore created the Anglican "Church." He was then able to divorce his wives and commit adultery because he was absolutely dedicated to having a son.
During the time America was under British rule, most were Anglicans. After the events of the American Revolution, the "church" was renamed the Episcopal "Church," because England was to be excised from public life.
The Episcopal "Church" was famous for supporting Darwinism and the eugenics theories of Nazi Germany.
Practices

The Episcopal "Church" has a vain and repetitious service, believes in such heresies as infant baptism and baptismal regeneration, and has icons and idols much like the Roman Catholic "Church." They allow practicing homosexual ministers, "ordain" women, and fail to recognize sin as a negative force in peoples' lives. Their spiritual leader, the Archbishop of Canterbury, is a known agnostic, and they allow the heresy of consubstantiation and using wine instead of grape juice for communion.
Taylor Swift, a vile succubus and harlot known for rejecting the lordship of Jesus Christ, is Episcopalian. This should tell you everything you need to know about this heretical sect of Satanic ritualism.

First, two television reporters vanished. Then a waiter went missing. Over the past week, men ranging in age from 16 to 50 have disappeared from the streets of Chechnya.

On Saturday, a leading Russian opposition newspaper confirmed a story already circulating among human rights activists: The Chechen authorities were arresting and killing gay men.

While abuses by security services in the region, where Russia fought a two-decade war against Islamic insurgents, have long been a stain on President Vladimir V. Putin’s human rights record, gay people had not previously been targeted on a wide scale.

The men were detained “in connection with their nontraditional sexual orientation, or suspicion of such,” the newspaper, Novaya Gazeta, reported, citing Russian federal law enforcement officials, who blamed the local authorities.

By Saturday, the paper reported, and an analyst of the region with her own sources confirmed, that more than 100 gay men had been detained. The newspaper had the names of three murder victims, and suspected many others had died in extrajudicial killings.

A spokesman for Chechnya’s leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, denied the report in a statement to Interfax on Saturday, calling the article “absolute lies and disinformation.”

“You cannot arrest or repress people who just don’t exist in the republic,” the spokesman, Alvi Karimov, told the news agency.

“If such people existed in Chechnya, law enforcement would not have to worry about them, as their own relatives would have sent them to where they could never return,” Mr. Karimov said.

The sweep, like so much else in Russian politics today, was entangled in the country’s troubled politics of street activism.

It began, Novaya Gazeta reported, after a Moscow-based gay rights group, GayRussia.ru, applied for permits to stage gay pride parades in four cities in Russia’s predominantly Muslim North Caucasus region, of which Chechnya is a part.

The group had not focused on the Muslim areas. It had been applying for permits for gay parades in provincial cities around Russia, and collecting the inevitable denials, in order to build a case about gay rights and freedom of assembly with the European Court of Human Rights, in Strasbourg, France. It had applied to more than 90 municipal governments. Nikolai Alekseev, a gay rights activist coordinating this effort, told Novaya Gazeta he had chosen this tactic rather than staging risky, unsanctioned gay parades.

The group had not applied for a permit in Chechnya, but in another Muslim region in southern Russia, Kabardino-Balkaria. The mere application there — denied, as usual — had prompted an anti-gay counterdemonstration.

In the restive Muslim regions, Mr. Putin has empowered local leaders to press agendas of traditional Muslim values, to co-opt an Islamist underground. The gay pride parade applications became a galvanizing issue.

“In Chechnya, the command was given for a ‘prophylactic sweep’ and it went as far as real murders,” Novaya Gazeta reported.

According to the report, the authorities set to finding and arresting closeted gay men, partly by posing as men looking for dates on social networking sites.

“Of course, none of these people in any way demonstrated their sexual orientation publicly — in the Caucasus, this is equal to a death sentence,” the newspaper wrote of those detained in the sweep.

“I got numerous, numerous signals,” about the sweep of gay men, said Ekaterina L. Sokiryanskaya,, Russia project coordinator for the International Crisis Group, and an authority on the North Caucasus. “It came from too many sources not to be true.”

Gay men have begun deleting online accounts, or fleeing the region. One user of Vkontakte, a Russian social networking site, wrote that a 16-year-old boy had been detained in a village in Chechnya. He returned days later, according to the post, “all beaten, just a sack with bones.”

The newspaper published contact information to aid men wanting to leave Chechnya for relatively more tolerant parts of Russia. But reaching communities of closeted gay men in the remote mountain region poses challenges.

“Even delivering the information is very difficult,” Ms. Sokiryanskaya, who is familiar with the aid effort, said. “They are just small islands, isolated.”

Is this the place we are going to be *RAPTURED* to? Kepler-186f

Revelation 21:1
A New Heaven and a New Earth
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.…

On July 23, 2015, NASA's Kepler mission confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a sun very similar to our star.

1.5 Things to Know About Alien Planet Kepler-186f, 'Earth's Cousin'

Kepler-186f is a history-making find

Kepler-186f is the first Earth-size alien planet found in the habitable zone of its star. That means the planet, which is only slightly larger than Earth, is in the part of its star system where liquid water could exist on the planet's surface. [See artist illustrations of alien planet Kepler-186f]

Astronomers have found other planets in the habitable zones of their stars, but this is the first time a planet this close in size to Earth has ever been found in the habitable zone of its star.

"This is an historic discovery of the first truly Earth-size planet found in the habitable zone around its star

Kepler-186f resides in the constellation Cygnus

THE CONSTELLATION OF CYGNUS

The seventh constellation is the Fishes (Pisces). The fish is a symbol of the Christian Church.
Two Fishes seem to represent two different groups of followers of Christ. (JEWISH AND GENTILE)
The role of Christ symbolized by the Fishes would be that of being the Great High Priest (Heb. 4:14).



In My Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and welcome you into My presence, so that you also may be where I am.…

An argument over Adam and Eve between a city-paid teacher and third-graders at a private Muslim school has landed the instructor in pedagogical purgatory, The Post has learned.

English teacher Nina Kossman committed the sin of “telling the truth,” she said of her expulsion from the Razi School in Woodside, Queens, which uses taxpayer-funded city Department of Education teachers in a federally-mandated program for poor kids.

Kossman infuriated parents by telling their children that Adam is “not real.” She noted that Judaism, Christianity and Islam share the myth, thinking it would “help build up tolerance” for other faiths. She also inadvertently showed kids a classical painting of the first couple as imagined in the Garden of Eden — nude.

A group of angry parents showed up at the school the next day to complain that she “discussed Jews with them and showed them pictures of naked people,” Kossman said Imani Al-Amin, an assistant to the principal, told her.

Kossman replied, “It’s just a story, a myth. It’s not real.”

The boy objected: “Adam is not a story! He is real!”

But Kossman persisted, “The story of Adam and Eve belongs to three religions — first Judaism, then Christianity, then Islam.”

When some kids said they didn’t believe it, Kossman opened her laptop and called up the Wikipedia page on Adam and Eve. Up popped the famous painting by 17th-Century artist Paul Rubens of nude Adam and Eve.

“Ooh! Naked people!” kids cried. “We’re not allowed to look at naked people!”

In 1947, sociologist Dr. Carle Zimmerman wrote a text called "Family and Civilization." He identified eleven 'symptoms of final decay' observable in the fall of both the Greek and Roman civilizations. See how many characterize our society:

1. No-fault divorce
2. "Birth dearth"; increased disrespect for parenthood and parents
3. Meaningless marriage rites/ceremonies
4. Defamation of past national heroes
5. Acceptance of alternative marriage forms
6. Widespread attitudes of feminism, narcissism, hedonism
7. Propagation of antifamily sentiment
8. Acceptance of most forms of adultery
9. Rebellious children
10. Increased juvenile delinquency
11. Common acceptance of all forms of sexual perversion

Your personality is a byproduct of your looks

As a kid i was extremely extroverted and would make friends with anyone i talked to, i never had any kind of insecurities and live was great, i liked people and people liked me

Then puberty hit and i quickly became the ugliest person in class, i didnt hit my growth spurt until very late so throughout middle school i was the shortest kid in class, and also the ugliest, and as a result of that people started to severely dislike me, causing me to become insecure and shy

Your looks is what defines what personality you end up with, its not something you can work on or change, its all about how other people treat you

An Iowa state representative is under fire after saying women who miscarry after 20 weeks of pregnancy should be forced to carry their dead fetuses to term.

During a hearing Wednesday of Senate File 471, which would clear the way for a state ban on abortions after the 20-week mark, Republican Rep. Shannon Lundgren — the manager of 471 — faced a question from fellow Rep. John Forbes, a Democrat.

Noting that he has a daughter who is 20 weeks pregnant, Forbes asked that under the bill, would his daughter have to carry her child to term even if a doctor told her there was no longer a heartbeat.

"Is that good medicine?" Forbes wondered.

Lundgren's response:

"This bill wasn't written for the intent to protect or govern on the side of the woman. It was written to save babies' lives, giving the choice and being the voice of those babies...that don't have one. I understand what you're saying—this fetus, this baby, is not alive. I would concur that in that instance, if your daughter's life is not in danger, that yes, she would have to carry that baby."
