...I don't "SMACK" my kids... I spanked them. I used a belt, or a paddle. You use terms like "abuse"... "smack" ... to make it sound like abuse when it is and was not. I didn't just hit my kids or whale on them at a whim... We talked to them, we explained to them why we believed what we believed, our responsibility to God as their parent, how serious we took that role and then we spanked them for deliberate disobedience...

Why DO YOU try to make those who consider spanking... "NOT SMACKING" or "BEATING" or Abusing suitable for training a child in the way he should go.... appear as abusers? Is it to excuse your lazy attitude towards your own responsibility in raising your own children? Don't accuse me of smacking my child again... or abuse.


PS.... I would use a switch also if I did not have a belt or a paddle, I'm not hurting my hand trying to spank the bottom of a disobedient child by hitting his jeans...

It's funny to me that many of the same scientists who discount the Flood are believers in man-made global warming. While there's plenty of evidence for a worldwide Flood, there's no scientific evidence for man-made global warming. It is a pipedream. It is a hoax to enslave mankind to global authorities.

"Don't believe in God? You're not alone."

The above "inspiring" phrase is popping up on billboards around the country. My wife just told me that one will be going up in Dallas, so I guess I'll have to start carrying a barf bag in my car for the drive to work It's being brought to us by the wonderful folks at http://freethoughtaction.org/ On their site they encourage people to also express this sentiment on t-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, etc. Satan must have a big ol' smile on his face right now.

By the way, interestingly on the way home I heard a news report in which they said a recent Newsweek poll showed that 20% of atheists and agnostics pray EVERY DAY.

[On why Hinduism is a false religion and Christianity is accurate.]

The Gita is just a bunch of babble with no written construction which simply repeats itself so much that it makes you dizzy after reading about four chapters. That's about it. Krishna in Hindu history was shot with an arrow and died. Hindu writings were written, changed, re-written, re-edited, and such into the first or second century.

(commenting on a review of Jimmy Carter's book, "We can have peace in the Holy Land:A Plan that will work.")

It is amazing that this man became president, although there are others as bad and as naive. My personal opinion is he fell out of his baby carriage on his head. Arabs hate Jews and have been hating them for over 3000 years . If some of our idiot politicians read the Bible they would understand the real problems and support God`s people. The Israeli people should also read their Bible and return to God`s commandments and statutes before it is too late Thanks and God bless.

Yes, the news is depressing, and sometimes I have to take a break from it. But my children are at very impressionable ages. I have to keep up with current events enough to explain why so much of what is going on is wrong to us Christians, and why the liberals' plan for America is destroying the freedoms this country was founded on.

Even more depressing is the fact that thanks to the Obama economy and liberal policies, I have just been laid off for the second time in three months.

(Montana plane crash kills family of man who owns family planning clinics)

I could easily believe that GOD could use this event to attempt to bring these people to a saving knowledge of JESUS CHRIST. Weather this is a judgement of GOD on these people or not, is to be left in the hand of GOD. I do know and believe that GOD can use this event to bring people to JESUS and I believe that HE will. Also this is something that our president Obama should spend a great deal of time thinking about. GOD will put a stop to his making fun of HIM and eventually bring him down. He would do well to see what GOD has to say about his actions. GOD does not have to ask Obama for permission to take his daughters, if it is his will. From my own life, I couldn't even consider polking GOD in the eye like Obama has. No one will get away with it for long. GOD may allow him to bring the economy back for a short time, and then Rapture the church, thus bringing this country down. IMHO Obama is placed himself in a position of fighting against GOD and he will loose. IMHO the only thing keeping us afloat is our support for Israel, and I can see this starting to end. When it does, GOD will probably remove his hand of protection for the country, but not from those of us that are HIS. THE TRUE BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS. GOD WILL NOT BE INSULTED OR DEFEATED.

The Hebrew year 5770 begins September 19th 2009 on Rosh Hashanah. Computer matrices found using Bible Code software suggest that this could be the year when the Bride of Christ will be raptured and the Tribulation period begins.

The word "RAPTURE" has been said not to appear in the Bible. Is it possible that it has been concealed or hidden (ENCODED) within the scriptures themselves. Four matrices have been located in the Old Testament linking the key word "RAPTURE" with the Hebrew years of 5770 (2009-2010), 5771 (2010-2011), and 5775 (2014-2015).

QUESTION: What can I do to prevent my child from becoming a homosexual or a lesbian?

ANSWER: There is not one definite answer to your question, but there are a few things worth remembering. First, I would suggest that little boys play with little boys, and that little girls play with little girls. This not to say that little boys should never play with little girls, and that little girls should never play with little boys. It is to say that by far the majority of a child's playing should be with his own sex. So much of the sex drive is caused by the unknown. If a little boy plays with other little boys, there will be a mystique about girls, but if he plays with little girls too much, they will become commonplace and there will be a mystique toward little boys. The human race is so constructed that when something becomes commonplace, it is not nearly as attractive to us. The old adage, "The grass is greener on the other side of the fence," applies here. In childhood this grass on the other side of the fence should be the opposite sex. If it is one's own sex, there would be a curiosity about that. Now I'm aware that the modern psychologists will say, "Let little boys see little girls, and let little girls see little boys, and let them become acquainted with the biological differences, and let them see each other unclothed." Let me remind you that that same generation of modern psychologists is turning out an unbelievable amount of homosexuals in our country!

The wise parents of a little boy will teach him that the body of a little girl is sacred, and they will see to it that he plays with other little boys. As he grows older, this mystique will follow its normal course, and he will be attracted to the opposite sex or "the grass on the other side of the fence."

One of the best ways of doing this is to lead the boy to develop interests that are masculine. This means his hobbies, his activities and his interests should be masculine to the extent that it will require him to be around other boys. The same is true for little girls developing feminine interests.

That's also the hope of Nancy Campbell, a leader of the Quiverfull movement and author of Be Fruitful and Multiply.

"The womb is such a powerful weapon; it's a weapon against the enemy," Campbell says.

Campbell has 35 grandchildren. She and her husband stopped at six kids, and it is her great regret.

"I think, help! Imagine if we had had more of these children!" Campbell says, adding, "My greatest impact is through my children. The more children I have, the more ability I have to impact the world for God."

"We look across the Islamic world and we see that they are outnumbering us in their family size, and they are in many places and many countries taking over those nations, without a jihad, just by multiplication," Campbell says.

["How widespread was the pagan baal cult in the ancient world circa 1000 bc?..."]

...'Ba'al is a title applied to several different localized Western Semitic Fertility cult deities - Hebrew prophets see them all as one big monstrous abomination, which is correct.

The best movie version showing what a fertility cult world is like is Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. Both Mayans and Aztecs practiced human sacrifice fertility cults, as did a number of other American Indian tribes, many Polynesians, some southeast Asians, and a number of sub-Saharan Africans.

As Christianity - which is the force that ended all those fertility cult abominations around the globe - has become effeminate, limp-wristed, and defensively determined to see great good in all other religions and cultures, child sacrifice has been making a comeback.

Any person who obeys his parents cannot ask them any questions. Who are you to ask your father any questions when he instructs you to do anything? If you should do that, then of course, you must die. Who are you to murmur against your father for giving you instructions? Who are you to be annoyed against your father for advising you? If you should ask any questions, you are inviting death. Whatever your parents ask you to do, you should obey them implicitly in order to receive God's blessings.

[Is It Ok For My Christian Daughter To Masturbate?]

Dear Concerned in San Diego,
You need to immediately take that sinful device from your daughter. Masturbation is another form of pornography that will infest your daughter’s mind and serve as a gateway to far worse sexual activities.

Studies show that 87% of the women who become prostitutes did so because of unbridled masturbation as a teenager, and over 90% of girls who become pregnant as teenagers did so because of masturbation loosened their morals and made them more apt to engage in unprotected fornication.

Masturbation will make your daughter very comfortable exploring her body, and it will not be long until she begins to envision other people partaking in the deviant behavior with her.

This will of course lead to your daughter seeking out a male companion, or even female. As a teenager, your daughter’s mind is not yet developed enough to handle the pressures and responsibilities of being sexually active. It will lead to great sorrow in her life if you don’t put a stop to it right now.

So first, have a talk with your daughter and pray with her. Pray all that sinful desire of masturbation right out of her heart. Throw the device away, and then enroll her in some abstinence counseling sessions. These will teach your daughter the value and need of respecting her body until marriage. Masturbation is very unnatural and by taking proactive steps to get this bizarre behavior out of your teen’s life, you’ll ensure she has a better future.

Q:Does anyone know if there is any oppressed people groups today in the world?

I need to do a report about a group of people that are being mistreated today in the world. Who are the people being oppressed? What is happening? Who is mistreating them? Why is this happening? Whats being done to help this problem?

A: Christians are by the rest of the world. Imagine if you will a young Caucasian boy kneeling in front of your high school in prayer with his hands clasped in front of him. He wouldn't last 5 min in most states before a teacher asked him to stop.
Now take an Asian kid sitting Indian style with his hands on his knees doing that OK symbol and he could stay there all day long praying to Buddha and no one would care.

It has become popular to hate Christians... why do you think that is?

I am sick of Tolerance. Tolerance is AGAINST humanity. The Fundamental (Strong, Weak, Electromagnetic, Gravity) Forces are not Tolerant, That's why the universe exists and evolves. Inorganic molecules are not tolerant, that's why life started. No life form has ever been tolerant, that's why we evolved. That's why we exist. INTOLERANCE. Each system doing it's best for itself. That brought us here. It's what we are. If Animals had been tolerant and weak, they wouldn't have eaten the lowest specimens, and there would be no life in this planet. It's hard to accept, for the modern human being, that being cruel is necessary. Even the most cruels man of today lie and justify their actions. There's no need to do that. Anything STRONG is GOOD. Anything that destroys weakness and elevates the human being is GOOD. Religion is Weakness of the mind. But Don't believe me. Let evolution decide. Stop being considerate to each other. That kills evolution. Let the Religious people try to destroy Atheism, and let the Atheists try to destroy Religion. Evolution will take care of choosing the best of each, and man will better at the end of the day.
Religions that preach tolerance, weakness, humility, poverty (Like Christianism) are PERVERSE religions. They foment the worst of the human being, and attack the instincts that made us what we are. They must be destroyed. Atheists that preach peace and tolerance and freedom of beliefs are weak too, and must be destroyed too.

It's time for the human being to embrace its true roots, and let evolution continue, take the evolution of the human race in its hands and lead it to the future. without mercy, without shame, without doubt. Any action that goes against the natural laws is SUICIDAL.

Many teens are deceived by using condoms as a prevention of pregnancy, when it plainly says, sold for prevention of diseases only, right on the product. Evidently the homosexuals don't read on a product label any better than they read the Bibles or when they sinned they would use them for the purpose they were made for, to prevent the spreading of aids.

A Tunisian pilot who paused to pray instead of taking emergency measures before crash-landing his plane, killing 16 people, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail by an Italian court along with his co-pilot.

The 2005 crash at sea off Sicily left survivors swimming for their lives, some clinging to a piece of the fuselage that remained floating after the ATR turbo-prop aircraft splintered upon impact.

A fuel-gauge malfunction was partly to blame but prosecutors also said the pilot succumbed to panic, praying out loud instead of following emergency procedures and then opting to crash-land the plane instead trying to reach a nearby airport.

Leviathon is a spirit I have battled as well. It was a hard battle but was won. It was about four months or more ago. My wife and I were in McDonalds and were having a conversation with an angel and Leviathon had come up. I told the angel that i wanted to fight this demon and he said I could. On the way back to the hotel I asked the angel if he could bring the demon to a predestinated place and he said yes. I figured that since Leviathon was from the depths of the sea he would be used to the cold water so I filled the tub up with scalding hot water and blessed the water. The angels (there were two now) brought Leviathon bound to the tub and fought with me. We all pulled our swords from our hips and began running this demon through with all my strength and everything I had. I would say it took atleast half an hour or more. We were all spent but the battle was won.

Homosexuals claim they want the "right" to get married and live normal lives just like heterosexual married couples.

The truth is, however, that the drive to gain legalization of so-called "gay" or "same-sex" marriage is part of a larger sexual agenda. Homosexual activists are now beginning to openly admit that they don't want to marry just to have a normal home life. They want same-sex marriage as a way of destroying the concept of marriage altogether-and of introducing polygamy and polyamory (group sex) as "families."

They are finally admitting what the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) has been saying for years: Their ultimate goal is to abolish all prohibitions against sex with multiple partners.

With all of those physical bodies disappearing and a vacuum being created where they were, and with the same thing basically happening in graves and crypts everywhere, there will definitely be a physical sound associated with this event. It will be a sound never heard before, so I can't even imagine what it could compare to. But it will definitely be audible.
