[On "militant atheists"]

Roam through the science section of a book store. There are quite a few out there. Multiple books on the subject. Which amuses me that they would waste so much of their lives dedicated to proving a negative that, according to them, has absolutely no impact on their lives anyways. The most amusing piece for me is that aside from that whole proving a negative problem, they fail their own logic. The very definition of an omnipotent force existing outside of the rules of science pretty much kills science ever being able to prove or disprove its existence. So, they "disprove" the existence of their own concocted definition of God.

Similar to this concept. I can prove right at this moment that I do not have a wizbanglefrat in my hand. Since I get to define what a wizbanglefrat is and it doesn't have to match anyone elses definition of a wizbanglefrat I can indeed state that there is not one in my hand. Then I can proceed to make outlandish statements about anyone who has a differing definition of wizbanglefrat and write numerous books on the subject rather than doing anything actually productive. :)

[Question: Can prayer cure cancer?]


No, but God can, if he will. Most times when cancer is healed, God uses normal medical treatments to do it, though, so don't refuse treatment and then blame God for not curing someone's cancer.

Funny you ask this. My husband and I have a friend that we were debating whether she was saved or not. Hubby said yes because she's always said she was Christian, I said no. I had a feeling she believes her "good works" are what will get her into heaven. So, one time when we were at her house, I somehow brought up Jeffrey Dahmer (the serial killer that ate his victims). I said that the story was that he was saved when he was in prison, so we would see him in heaven. Then I told her Mother Theresa may not be in heaven if those letters she wrote that questioned Jesus were true. Well, our friend just about had a heart attack!

So now, that's my new test to see if people really understand grace and salvation. Tell them that Jeffrey Dahmer may be in heaven and Mother Theresa may not. The way they react really shows what they believe.

A few years ago I discovered some shocking information about bible translations. I found out that modern translations are based on a Greek text produced by Luciferians, namely Brook Foss Westcott and Fenton John Anthony Hort. We Christians who know about the New World Order know that Satan's goal is to keep people from believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. Satan's plan is to deceive Christians into accepting New Age philosophy through slowly poisoning bibles through modern translations based on minority text types. I have uploaded some videos on YouTube and Google Video of Dr. Gail Riplinger discussing the New Age connection to modern translations. Search Google for "Action Sixties Riplinger" and watch the videos. You can also visit my YouTube channel. My username is fishslab.

Liberal police force ignores blasphemy; Christian sues

A Christian activist is bringing a private prosecution for outraging public decency against an art centre in Gateshead, north-east England, after the local police force in the socialist-controlled region declined to take action. Christian Emily Mapfua (40) was outraged by the decision of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art to display an obscenely-modified statue of Jesus as so-called 'art'. But Northumbria Police declined to act on her complaint, so Emily is going it alone. Well, not quite alone, as we suspect all Christians and people with any decency at all will support her.

My assertion that God sent the Flood waters to Neptune (not Mars, as DAD asserts), is an honest guess, and my assertion that Noah lived in the area that is now New Jersey is something that I absolutely believe, and have [somewhat] backed up with Wikipedia.

("Christian singer Ray Boltz comes out of the closet")

And I don't think he's just lost, personally, I think people are either possessed by demonic spirits, or they're oppressed by them, and far as I'm concerned, homosexuality is a possessing demonic spirit. Concerning Mr.Boltz' attitude about this, in which he professes to be Christian, and gay, and loved by God, because he's just the way God made and meant for him to be, I believe he's possessed by a demonic spirit of homosexuality, and thus needs an exorcism. To me this is simply not just an unsaved person being blinded to the lie that homosexuality isn't a sin, this is about a man who with every fiber of his being, believes he is a homosexual and that it's nature, that it was God's design/plan.

Where are the Christian ministers performing exorcisms? That's what he needs!

Quote# 47677

There is great deception in America... civil rights. Many moral right's issues are deceitfully being labeled as "civil rights." Thus, many moral right's issues are being violated in the name of "civil rights." Listen, just because you're a U.S. citizen doesn't give you the right to disobey God. For example: Being a U.S. citizen gives you the "right" to vote; but, it does not give you the right to be homosexual. I don't care what the Supreme Court says, the Word of God condemns homosexuality. America is filled with demented homosexuals and murderous abortionists who boast of being respectable citizens, committing their sins with the government's permission; but, God will judge them for their sins (Romans 1:32).
The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.

SPORE, it a game where you create things out of nothing, and let them EVOLVE into somthing else. in essence you are playing as a god, in this game. now the bible says that GOD made the earth in 6 (not six hundred million) days. the bible also says that anything but the truth (what the bible, Gods word, says) is a lie and thus a sin. now tell me, is playing a game where you do God's job, and then continue into the game with something that the bible says is a sin (evolution)?? you make the call.

its a game in which you disclaim God by becomeing a god. and if i remeber right, there is a Commandment aginst that...

I have forced all of the demons to go inside of the chief. Then I asked the Lord's holy angels to place them in a tight box and lock it. I asked them to place another box over that box. I prayed and asked the Lord if He would force them to stay in the box until they were willing to leave. I have gotten much relief since then, but they do still attack me somehow. I called down God's wrath upon them today and will continue to do so until they will leave. They won't leave yet. Any other suggestions?

You need to read Genesis and Exodus, for they clearly explain that the entire universe was made in literally 6 days.

[The poster can be described as a 14 year old conservative christian]

Ok, since marriage is coming up. I believe mariage should between 1 man and 1 women. Like it says in the bible. The question is, is being gay a disease/something your born with? There are arguments for both sides, that are legiment. My point is, why would God put a disorder out there that goes against what is in the Bible? Therefor, it must be a lifestyle, not a disorder.

Religious people have moral guidance which comes from God, atheists have nothing. The legal system is just to keep atheists in place. If it wasn't for the law, atheists would rob old ladies and set children on fire.

An Italian comedienne faces prosecution for insulting the Pope, an offence that carries a prison sentence of up to five years.

Sabina Guzzanti, noted for her sharp satirical wit and lampoons of the powerful, is accused of "offending the honour of the sacred and inviolable person" of Pope Benedict XVI at a rally in Rome in July.

Speakers at the rally on Piazza Navona also protested against excessive interference by the Vatican and the Catholic Church in Italian affairs, from abortion to gay rights. Ms Guzzanti, noted for her satirical impersonations of Mr Berlusconi, told the crowd that within 20 years Italian teachers would be vetted and chosen by the Vatican.

She added: "But then within twenty years the Pope will be where he ought to be, in Hell, tormented by great big poofter devils — and very active ones, not passive ones." Giovanni Ferrara, the Rome prosecutor, said that he had asked Angelino Alfano, the Minister of Justice, for permission to proceed with a prosecution.

If there's no evidence for heaven then it means the sky actually has an end, and the planes and all theses things that NASA uses to go to moons could infact hit the 'wall' of the sky. Anyway it's irrelevant. How many kilos/miles tall (is it the right word) does scientists say the sky is?

On the Large Hadron Collider

I would have been more interested to see what would happen if they spend that much money and effort honoring the Lord Jesus Christ. This project is a giant testimony to the ego of man, and its creation is similar to the building of the tower of babel. Having spent most of my life as an engineer, this attitude is new to me. But technology is only good if it benefits man. My life work pretty much benefitted Bill Gates. In retrospect, I wish I had spent my life helping people in a more meaningful way. When I get to heaven, I want to say more for myself than, I wrote a bunch of drivers. These scientists will be able to say, "We build the worlds largest machine". In the end, God will have his way and the project will create as many questions as answers, and faith will still be a virtue. IMHO

(Complaining about California's new wording on marriage licenses: Instead of "Bride" and "Groom", it's now "Party A" and "Party B".)

Terrible! So, let me get this straight (no pun intended)...
Because the state wants to sanction gay marriages, traditional (man and woman) requests for licensure won't be afforded their due recognition? They will have to endure a generic, gender neutral abomination of a certificate so as not to offend!

This is a great practical example of how light and darkness CANNOT coexist, they are mutually exclusive!

(Seriously, is it really THAT big of a honking, hairy deal???)

Well I'm sorry friend, your talking to someone who has actually had encounters with demons. And that was back in 1973. In my case, it lasted for 6 months. And I was not operated on, so we cannot claim post-anesthesia delirium. These demons would move objects, shake beds, I could hear them speaking, and chanting. Sometimes you could hear drums beating in the night. The were removed from me on a Saturday morning in a home in Crete Il. That is when about nine Christian came together and commanded them to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. I still have the tapes from that time. Most people on these posts have opinions about such things, I actually had experiences, and pretty extensive. When the Bible speaks about Demonic encounters, those stories are not fabrications.
