What if he placed the coins around on the ground? Someone could find one, read the message, and think it was a sign from God. That way, the marine would not have been caught disobeying those pesky regulations. He could spread the message to the locals while appearing neutral to his superiors. I don't know...just an idea.

Michael, you wrote, "Teachers and students should be allowed to pray together, why do you want a teacher leading the entire class in a prayer?" Answers include:

* it worked for hundreds of years
* it clears the minds and emotions for the learning to follow
* it instills respect at a time when it is needed
* it offers the opportunity to pray for a classmate in need
* the teacher and students want to do it, and it builds collegiality
* there is no legitimate reason to censor it (hatred of religion is not a legitimate reason)

Do I need to list more reasons?

[Some students may not be religious.]

So what? Often the entire class does welcome the prayer without any objection. And in the rare case there is someone who objects, surely you don't think one person can censor everyone else just by saying he doesn't like something.

[Religion should stay as far away from science as is humanly possible. And science should stay away from religion as well.]

And both of them should stay as far away from Darwinism as possible. I'd been away from this stuff for a week or so, I had forgotten what utter nonsense the whole thing is. I can understand why an atheist needs an alternate creation myth, but what on earth can motivate 'the church' to eat this excrement?

[at Friendswood Jr High...as part of a yearlong study of respect, tolerance and culture... The guest speakers discussed Muslim culture, including topics such as food, religion, dress, beliefs and famous Muslims.]

I do not think that teaching anything about Islam or muslims is a good thing. I would certainly want to know if this was going on so I could pull my child out of the class that day. We are not rich but I would consider working overtime to pay for a lawsuit if anything like this happened at my daughter's school. And I have already stated educating my children about the evils of Islam so they will not be deceived. [...]

The problems with your statement are bolded. Its not really about what you think or feel, but what God thinks and has said in His Word. He has called homosexuality an abomination and therefore that is what it is. He also said all homosexuals will have a place in the Lake of Fire. Those are not wishy washy words. But words of holiness and truth from a Holy God. Man will do what is right in his own eyes. The Word of God says that in the last days man will call evil good and good evil. And so it goes. The Lord's Word will stand over anything man says. May God be true and every man a liar!

[discussion on Iranian scientists claiming the Holocaust was "exaggerated"]

I tend to agree with it being exagerated, but it did happen, and happened because worldwide jewry turned away from God.

"They are the two groups in the world, children of God - those who have received Christ (John 1:12), and the children of the devil - those who reject Christ (John 8:44)."

We went to go see Obama when he came to our town. When I got in the car with my mom she blurted out "Do you realize we might have been in the same room as the false prophet or the beast?" It was sort of creepy. My friend sent my this a few days ago:

Remember--God is good, and is in time, on time--every time.

According to The Book of Revelations the anti-christ is:

The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything. Is it OBAMA??

I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times as you can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet...do it!

If you think I am crazy..Im sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the "unknown" candidate

Quote# 40294

Not all relationships between humans are equal.

Look at the laws governing various business relationships. Businesses can take many forms -sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership, corporations, and other forms. Those relationships are treated different under the law. If you want to have the benefits of a limited partnership, become a limited partner. Want to own part a corporation? Buy a stock.

If you think it is unfair that a general partnership is treated differently from a limited partnership, which is treated differently than a corporation, remember that there is no fundamental human right to have one's general partnership be given the right and privileges of a corporation. And any general partner in a general partnerships who argues such a case in court would be laughed out of court.

Now, given the differences between men and women, how could a same-sex union be equal to an opposite-sex union? They can't .

Well, I for one can prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that G-d exists...

First though, you can't question or discount someone's belief anymore than they can set it before you as concrete fact.

When I was growing up, I went to religious school at my synagogue every Sunday. One week the Rabbi took questions from the students. It just so happened that there was a thunderstorm outside that day at that moment.

Eventually he got a question that asked if G-d really existed (these question were all hand written and pre-submitted).

After he had read the question allowed... but before he could answer it, there was a bright flash of lightening, followed by a loud rumble of thunder. Let's put it this way... after that he did not bother answering the question.

A major criticism is that Intelligent Design is not falsifiable. However, Intelligent Design is falsifiable by demonstrating that its central claims are false.

The theory of intelligent design says that certain features of biology and the universe are best explained by intelligent activity.

Intelligent design says that these features can NOT be produced by unintelligent activity. All you have to do to falsify intelligent design is to demonstrate that these features CAN be produced by intelligent activity. Below is an example:

CLAIM: Currently, information processing systems are only known to be the product of intelligent activity.
FALSIFICATION: Demonstrate that unintelligent processes can produce information processing systems.

Don't confuse the point: The question is not whether intelligent design has been falsified, it is whether it can, in principle, be falsified at all.

A certain clique of Darwinists seems intent on waging a religious war in the name of the Church of Darwin, fueled by the same kind of fear and paranoia that struck Christiandom in the 19th Century when blindsided by Darwins original "dangerous idea." Except this time around, it's the Darwinists who are ready to burn books and excommunicate scientists they disagree with.

I have a question....I don't read anything, but the bible because I love God so much and I don't want to offend him....but I watching a movie...and I didn't realize it, but it ended up being about a family who knew the man who wrote the book of mormon...what is this book about? what does it say? I know that it IS NOT from God...in the bible, it says to add nothing and take nothing away from it, so I know that this is a false book....but I'm curious as to what it says...just like I was curious about the quoran...I don't and will never believe it, but I just wanted to know what is so different about it...did this man say that God gave him more to add to the bible? ...or did he rewrite the bible? I believe that the devil has angels...and these angels fooled him into thinking it was from God....the same with the quran...the devil will do anything to get people away from the bible...anyway, what do mormons believe...what is different about the book of mormon? thanks!

I found a very good web site that stated what the difference is between the bible and the book of mormon...
The devil never gives up! It saddens my heart that so many people believe in this garbage... I pray that God will show them that the bible is the only truth!

Wouldn’t be nice to know if just one of those coins planted a seed that will grow to a muslim finding faith in Jesus. On the other hand, the angered residents who rejected the seed will have an eternity in hell to think about the missed opportunity.

BAGHDAD - The U.S. military confirmed May 29 that a Marine in Fallujah passed out coins with Gospel verses on them to Sunni Muslims, a military spokesman in the Iraqi city said. The man was immediately removed from duty and reassigned.

The coins angered residents who said they felt that the American troops, whom they consider occupiers, were also acting as Christian missionaries in a predominantly Muslim nation.

Like it or not, UFOs are going to be a part of newspaper headlines more and more in the years to come--possibly days to come. We will see more and more threads about these things on this board. We have had more articles on the subject this past week than what we have had during the past year. Some folks on Rapture Ready may not like the subject--but hey--it isn't going away. It is not ever going to go away. It is only going to get more and more and more intense.

...I have had family members and friends in the Air Force deal with this subject and have to treat it seriously. There have been serious mysterious manifestations that have concerned many of our pilots. Get out the tinfoil hats but it is a fact.

I prayed throughout my teenage years for God to show me the truth and I believe he has. These sightings are related to the last days and to the Great Delusion.

...What you are seeing are some of the darkest demonic forces to enter our dominion and it is no joke.

...Paul tells us to have an answer ready for our faith.

IMO, the answer isn't this is a joke. The answer is believe in Jesus Christ. He will give you eyes to see and ears to hear. The devil is about to release one of the greatest lies in history. Don't follow it. Don't follow dark angels.

[TwilightDF (Ark from FSTDT, Controverse from CF): The way people are acting in this thread is grossly unChrist-like... We are allowed to have our own opinions, but to call someone "more than hateful" when they try to point out the hypocrisy in the way people act in this thread? You might as well call Christ a hateful being. He pointed out the hypocrisies in others, after all... I see hardly any love at all - I see only a vile hatred and intolerance of one another's honest opinions.]

[Roptom: Thank you for showing me that there are some true Christians that have not forgotten what Christ preached, Unfortunately from my own experience, there is not many Christians like you around! I really hope I'm wrong and that there is allot more than i think.]

You really think the same God who called homosexuality an abomination is going to recognize a gay couple as being married? He made marriage to be a good thing.

I said it once and I'll say it again: Gay people have the same right I do to marry someone of the opposite gender. They just choose not to. I happen to know a man and woman who were actively gay for 14+ years. Now they're happily married to each other and leading a ministry that helps others leave the homosexual lifestyle. They will tell you, as will any other ex-gay person, that there is no love in homosexuality--only lust.
