[Everything can get all fundied up! This is excerpted from advice given by one Christian interior decorator to another who worries that her occupation isn't Christian enough. Incidentally, as a Pagan interior decorator, I don't bring religious statues or themes of any kind, just blend in what the client already has.]

If you have been gifted by God to know how to enhance the décor of your home, or the homes of others, then it’s a wonderful gift to share. And, if individuals in the marketplace are going to be paid to help in these areas as designers, then as with most other professions, it’s great for that person to be a Christian. Just like we're all called to do as believers in any career - you can let the light of Jesus shine through you. Whether working with believers or with non-believers, you can be a blessing and allow God to give you opportunities to minister as you trust Him for wisdom and creative ideas.

Here are a few practical ways you can minister. Ask your clients if you can pray with them as you make important decisions, or at least let them know you're praying about it. Tie in themes that glorify and honor God. And remember, you will be able to keep things from coming into the home that non-Christian designers may have used - Buddha’s or other god-like statues, tasteless art, dark themes, etc.

As an interior designer, you are given a unique witnessing opportunity! You are able to go into homes where you can pray quietly or aloud in each room, and even share the gospel with your customers.

You can prove Lincoln existed because people were there. You can prove many things in the past because people were there. Evolution you cannot prove because no one was there, But I have a revelation from God who was there, in starts in Gen 1:1. Evolutionists beat around the bush saying we accuse them of naturalism. They are simply avoiding the queshtion. They want to believe whatever is convienient and looks good.

Will California be able to survive their wickedness? Will California repent?
Ezekiel 15:7
"And I will set my face against them;
they shall go out from one fire,
and another fire shall devour them;
and ye shall know that I am the Lord,
when I set my face against them."

Has California ceased to bear fruit so it can only be cast into the fire? Has God destined California for judgment?

"a muslim would not respond to the death of a muslim, regardless of the circumstances, with such a question

when we visit the graves or even pass by the graves of the muslims, we wish them well, forgiveness of sins, and speedy entry into jannah

the kuffar, when we hear of their death, there are no words of sorrow or comfort, because their dead are in hell, when we pass by their graves, we remind them of the punishment of the hellfire

if a muslim has kafir relatives, they are not exempt from the punishments of the grave, nor the responses of the sunnah"

[Question: If God has destined that Obama his going to be the next president.?
Don't you think he will be the next president of the United States. Is there anything impossible for God to do? NO.]


God gave us Bill Clinton twice- why?
Because we asked for it.
He will give us Obama if we keep acting like fools.

God will not be mocked. If people want to blaspheme God and worship Allah- He will see to it that we get our way.

Quote# 45888

[This is regarding an "immoral behaviors" survey done by the Barna Group, which are Evangelical pollsters. The "immoral" behaviors included cussing in public and buying lottery tickets. "Mosaics" is the word they use for adults under 25.]

According to George Barna, who directed the survey, the results reflect a significant shift in American life.

"We are witnessing the development and acceptance of a new moral code in America," said the researcher and author, who has been surveying national trends in faith and morality for more than a quarter-century. "Mosaics have had little exposure to traditional moral teaching and limited accountability for such behavior. The moral code began to disintegrate when the generation before them - the Baby Busters - pushed the limits that had been challenged by their parents - the Baby Boomers. The result is that without much fanfare or visible leadership, the U.S. has created a moral system based on convenience, feelings, and selfishness.

"The consistent deterioration of the Bible as the source of moral truth has led to a nation where people have become independent judges of right and wrong, basing their choices on feelings and circumstances. It is not likely that America will return to a more traditional moral code until the nation experiences significant pain from its moral choices."

[A fundie getting steamed by a song called "God is a Girl"]

what the hell. This song is so messed up. And so is every one of you. If? any of you are christians then you should be ashamed, because God is going to be mad with you on judgement day. God is not a girl, he is a spirtial being from a different diemension, and there is no male or female, but he shows himself in the image of man, because man is ruler and stronger than the female. Eve was cursed because she gave adam the apple, so she is not stronger or have the power to rule a country or a famliy.


Men are givin the right to be powerful leaders and the head of the family. its serouisly messed up to think otherwise. This is such an abomination to GOD. "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, bitter? for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20

Christian love from Obama?
Obama claims to be Christian yet has a 1/2 brother living in Libya that earns $12.00 per YEAR. Yep $1.00 per month. Obama could more than DOUBLE his income by sending him $25 bucks. Do you really trust him to be willing to help Americans in need when he won't send his malnourished brother $25 bucks

[In response to "How did these bible people live to be hundreds of years old?"]

People lived that old because our world was much different back then. There was more oxygen and there was a layer of water that surrounded the Earth which caused more pressure. It is amazing how Science is proving the Bible to be correct.

Quote# 45898

The viewpoint of quran is very clear. according to the quran surah yasin ayah 40, the sun and the moon keep moving in their orbits. this makes clear that the sun moves too. this has been discovered i this century itself. A muslim's view of the quran should not be with reference to science rather the view of science should be in the light of quran. Thus if both move, its the relative motion of things that we observe fro the earth. in the universe, nothing is above, below, big or small. everything is relative. hence there is no wrong in saying if the sun moves around the earth or the other way round. Most important thing is that these petty things should not divert us from worrying about more important issues facing the religion and muslims.

in surah al anaam verse 97, allah says that the purpose of the stars is to help us find our path geographically. thus stars are not for wasting our time (we should not waste our time on the discussion of movement of the sun, which is also a star, on ummah forum)

the purspose of humans is defined in quran as to worship allah. so we should discuss more on issues related to that aspect."

And might I offer this prayer the ones already mentioned.

Lord, please open the eyes of elected Democratic politicians. A good many of them support the killing of unborn babies and the one running for President even supported allowing an aborted baby born alive to die without receiving any medical attention. A good many of these elected Democrats support gay marriages and are actively trying to make a union between people of the same sex legal across our land. Lord, these Democrats go and find sympathetic judges to usurp the will of the majority of the people even after the majority has voted on an issue. They think they know better than the majority of Americans.

A good many of these elected Democrats support just about every other religion with the exception of Christianity. They're even actively enacting laws which make it illegal to criticise sins, such as homosexuality, mentioned in Your Holy book. Lord, a good many of these Democrats do not embrace the old adage 'peace through strength' when it comes to our enemies. They would rather have talks with terrorists who want to destroy our way of life. They don't seem, or refuse, to recognize the dangers posed by Islamic radicals. Lord, these are just a few of the issues that our elected Democrats need to have their eyes opened to.

Lord, please don't let anymore Democrats who espouse the views mentioned above to get elected to the Senate, the House of Reprentatives, or the Presidency. In Jesus' mighty name I pray. Amen.

Because of observing the actions of athiests on this site. On this site athiests tell a lot of outright lies and twist verses out of context to decieve with. When athiests stop doing these things people will consider them to be more moral.

Only people who are actually part of a religion are religious, duh!

...A Muslim or a Hindu, for instance, IS religious, because they try to earn their way to Heaven. Christians don't need to do that and are therefore not religious.

In response to the ACLU wining their case against school Principal David Davis who according to U.S. District Judge Richard Smoak "...embarked on what can only be characterized as a 'witch hunt' to identify students who were homosexual and their supporters...He went so far as to lift the shirts of female students to ensure the letters 'GP' or the words 'Gay Pride' were not written on their bodies."

Look for extreme persecution of the ones who outed the girl. Right is wrong and wrong is right these days. The principal will probably lose his job.

[Question: Atheists and Christians: if you were negotiating a peace treaty here in R&S, what would be your 'demands?'?
The only rules are:

1) You can't ask the other person to give up their current belief system or lack thereof.

2) You must be polite -- after all, the other side can walk out of the negotiations at any time. ;-)

Keep in mind that the goal is peace between both sides, not converting anyone to your mindset.


I want atheists to stop being stupid, pseudo-intellectual, pretentious, rebellious and homosexual, and to believe in Christ as their saviour--it's for their own good!

These people act like beating a child to make him realize that he is living a life that will make him suffer in hell for ever and ever is wrong. The father did this out of love and a broken heart. The punishment given by the boys father is nothing compared to the punishment that will be given to this boy by our Heavenly Father.

Atheism is spiritual masturbation. The function of sex is to experience it with a partner in order to bring life into the world. On a spiritual (i.e., psychic) level, the same principle holds true; that is, God is the partner. So I ask, do atheists have anything but themselves in their introspection? Eveything from our standpoint begins in the imagination, which does not necessarily imply unreality. Therefore, I would agree that God is imaginary.

[Next post]

Addendum: God is imaginary in the sense that concepts do become real in the "physical" universe. From the imagination, articulated concepts affect this world, e.g. simply designing a car, writing a good story, or designing the atomic bomb. I'll shut up. Bye.
