Just before World War I, there were a number of terrorist attacks on the United States forces in the Philippines by Muslim extremists. So Gen. Pershing captured 50 terrorists and had them tied to posts for execution. He then had his men bring in two pigs and slaughter them in front of the now horrified terrorists. Muslims detest pork because they believe pigs are filthy animals. Some of them simply refuse to eat it, while others won't even touch pigs at all, nor any of their by-products. To them, eating or touching a pig, its meat, its blood, etc., is to be instantly barred from paradise (and those virgins) and doomed to hell. The soldiers then soaked their bullets in the pig blood, and proceeded to execute 49 of the terrorists by firing squad. The soldiers then dug a big hole, dumped in the terrorists' bodies and covered them in pig blood and entrails. They let the 50th man go. And for the next forty-two years, there was not a single Muslim extremist attack anywhere in the world. Maybe it is time for this segment of history to repeat itself? The question is, where do we find another Blackjack Pershing?

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which is stands one nation, under a blue sky, formed by chance through a random process of organization against uncalculable odds and complete opposition to the laws of physics, probablity and entropy, paying no attention to our forefathers who founded this country on Biblical principles, without the aid or direction of any higher power and for no reason whatsoever indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

[When trying to convince SphincterSparten that Hitler was a Christian]

Have you even been arround in history class? In Hitler's book, Mein Kompf, he speaks of darwinism and evolutio numerous times, and in all it is posotive. Why else do you think he tried to exterminate the Jews and other races he considered "inferior"? The Bible even states that all races are equal and that none is inferior to the other. The Bible is against racism, though many people did not follow this, the Bible is against racism. Yes we have, donated billions, saved millions of people's lives, given much to science, given much to America and the rest of the world, given much for the freedom of people. What has atheism given us? What has evolution given us?

A mayor's plan to end her town's ban on the 1979 Monty Python film Life of Brian are being opposed by the local vicar, who says it pokes fun at Jesus.

Sue Jones-Davies, who played Brian's girlfriend in the movie, was amazed when she became mayor of Aberystwyth that it was still barred at the cinema.

But Reverend Canon Stuart Bell said Christians he spoke to in Ceredigion were still against it being shown.

Nearly 30 years on, Mr Bell, vicar of the town's St Michael's Church, said the restriction should remain in place.

"There's been no change in attitude or response to the film amongst the Christians who have spoken to me in Aberystwyth," he explained.

"The film at its root is poking fun at Christ and we don't want that to happen. I don't think that the film should be shown. Why should the ban be removed?"

Asked if he had ever seen the film, Mr Bell said he had "seen a small clip, that's all".

He said: "If someone was going to make fun of my wife in a film then I would oppose that.

Well, one thing to take into consideration is abortion. I have talked to several people who said that they would have considered adoption over abortion IF they wouldn't have had to worry about the adoption agency placing the child with a gay couple instead of a decent, normal family. There are a growing group of people out there who will not rule out abortion until gay adoption is stopped. So, in that sense, more babies could be saved by outlawing gay adoption.

Could mental illness explain atheism and non Christian religions?
Jesus's message was simplke- worship him as god, or burn in hell.

WHY are there people who choose damnation over salvation?
Are they mentally ill? Are they stupid?

Athiests are usually too stupid to understand Hellfire is not a good thing...

Quote# 44157

When people ask me why a good and loving God would allow someone to go to hell, my response is "Why wouldn't He?"

I look at it this way. I have two sons and know how much they mean to me. What if someone rejected them? Cursed their names, twisted their words, mocked them and denied they existed? What if they persecuted their friends?

I don't care how wonderful someone is by the world's standards...don't care how many good deeds they do...if they reject my sons, their big toe isn't getting through my door.

I challenge people to think about the ones they love the most--them imagine them being treated the same way Jesus has been treated. It puts some perspective on how God will allow people to suffer the consequences of rejecting the Son Who shed His blood for them.

People still say God should let people into Heaven because He's "supposed to be a forgiving God." Well, indeed He is...but forgiveness only comes through the Son these people reject.

Sadly, some folks will never get it...until it's too late.

We moved and are closer to the train track -runs right through the back. I like the noise. But it startled me awake last week at 4:30 am and I remember that my first thought was, "there it is!" (the trumpet) I flew out of bed and was ready to jump out of the window.

ya know, all this happens within a few seconds before you realize the truth but those couple of seconds are crazy!!!

My whole household thinks I've taken a long leap... (roll eyes smiley)- but I just smile and they "tolerate" me! I've spent this year cleaning, organizing, restocking our Y2K closet with things "just in case". Just last week the Lord was prompting me to stock up on a certain food item - ran into a great deal and bought 21 boxes of it. Hubby just rolled his eyes, kids look at me (whisper smiley) "yeah, Mom's at it again..."

I've "known" for the past 30+ years that I would not die - just a strong sense I've always had. Have also had a strong sense that my one Aunt was a kind of Methusaleh to me: she wouldn't die until VERY shortly before the Rapture (as the original did just before Noah entered the ark...) Well, she's now 103, and for the first time ever, starting to spend more time in bed than out. Now, I realize, this is all personal "sensing", but even we, as poor, sinful parents, love to leave "hints" about the joys we plan for our children...how much more has our Father left His Word, and signs and "sensings" through things like this thread??!

It's a hard walk - one daughter just entering college after years of wondering what to do with her life, (would love to see her develop and grow - is there time??) another NOT walking with the Lord anymore, (Lord, please draw her back to your heart) a son confused and trying to listen, yet the world is strong(Help him cling to the truth, Father)...one daughter passed away three years ago, leaving a son for us to raise, (praise You that she is with You, Lord...but he's SOOO active, and I'm SOOO tired..)yet another child with Asperger's - wondering how to prepare her for the "real world" -- all the while on the other hand WATCHING with abated breath!!! Trying to keep my "feet" on the ground with everyday life, yet feeling like Uncle ?? in Mary Poppins who just keeps laughing at the prospect of what's to come and lifting off the floor!!!

COME Lord Jesus!! (Yeah! smiley)

[Question: Why is it that people believe everthing someone tells them. Yet most people still dont believe in Christ?]


Wow. I've never thought about it THAT way. Great post.

I think that they KNOW God is real...but the atheists find it easier to deny Jesus, than to believe. It's easier because you don't have to worry about sin, and going to church, and praying.

GOD doesn't want us to use his name in vein. Jesus said, "If you call some one foolish. You are actully called him and GOD foolish."

I usually don't get mad that easy. Only when my faith is offend like Jesus was when he was in the temple and saw people sell unclean animals.

Quote# 44083

excuse me, but what is so hard to understand when the bible describes the act? man lying with man as he would a woman. homosexuality, just as it is with sex between heterosexuals before marriage, is a sin. Jesus even said that looking at someone with lust in your heart is the same as adultery. even if someone is a "closet" homosexual that has never acted on it, their thoughts of lust is the same thing. people want to hang on to their sin and never want to let it go. the point about GOd's love and the lenghts He went to to prove it, even the greatest sinner isn't too far for Him to redeem and make a new creature. He is the one who made you, knows everything about you, and still loves you. despite knowing our sins, that we'd reject Him, and that He had to die for His plan of remeption to be fulfilled, He still gave up His life and took our place on the cross. the main reason why people don't want to accept His forgiveness is because they would have to admit that they're a sinner in need of that redemption.

It's amazing, they've quoted so many many posts from RR, it's like they're a backup of the RR message board!

It's amazing to see the extreme divergence of world views, that what we would consider a perfectly normal post and nod in agreement when we read it, is held up to ridicule and mocked.

It's like we and they are from two different planets - and in a sense, ain't that the truth? We are in this world but not of this world!

I, too, think there is plenty of evidence for the flood. It's no coincidence that in the state of Arizona you have the petrified forest, the Grand Canyon, a giant crater, and there is ancient lava rock that looks like it's just coming up from out of the ground. When you put all those together it takes me to the Genesis account of the flood when the ground opened up and released it's waters, the sky opened up and released all it's waters, and along with all the opening up were other catastrophes.

Gotta ask yourself just why are we doing all this? I'm sure somebody out here will readily slam me, but the overall effort here has done little more than justify a lot of hi-engineering and science degrees. The Shuttle has been proven to have had little practical purpose considering the cost and effort. We're getting into areas now (personally don't think we're supposed to be) where I think you can be assured somebody? is going to hold up as the 'smoking gun' which we are starting to see and THEY'RE going to know the mystery of God! See where it's going?

Quote# 44141

As reported on the Slashdot article Christian Churches Celebrate Darwin's Birthday, 450 "Christian" churches are actually celebrating the birthday of good ol' Charlie Darwin, the father of the THEORY and RELIGION of Evolution, stating that "Darwin's theory of biological evolution is compatible with faith and that Christians have no need to choose between religion and science".

Uhm... what? What people would say this and call themselves Christians? I continued to read the article and discovered a list, true or not, of churches reported to be celebrating:

"A variety of denominational and non-denominational churches, including Methodist, Lutheran, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Unitarian, Congregationalist, United Church of Christ, Baptist and a host of community churches, are participating in the event, which grew out of Zimmerman's The Clergy Letter Project, another effort to dispel the perception among many Christians that faith and evolution are mutually exclusive."

It doesn't at all surprise me that the Episcopal, Presbyterian, Unitarian, and Congragationalist churches are doing it. They have a warped perspective on the Bible already. But the inclusion of the United Church of Christ and the Baptist church kind of took me by surprise. They have a central office that approves what these churches do. There's a good chance the entire denomination has been compromised.

There's a word we Christians use when something like this happens. We not-Catholic Christians don't use it often, but when the appropriate time arises, we'll use it. Dictionary.com seems to label it as a Catholic-specific term. Whether that is true or not, I've heard very devout Protestant Christians use it at times.

That word is HERETIC. Suggesting that God used Evolution to aid in the creation of the universe is heresy. It clearly conflicts with the 7 24-hour day Creation timeline as layed out in the first chapters of Genesis. This goes way beyond simple misinterpretation, people.
