(Board member forwards a message from his daughter about her mission trip to Japan)

“It's 9:17 pm Wednesday here in Tokyo. That would be about 7:17 am where you are. Today, we went prayer walking at Asakusa Temple, and it was devastating. As you enter through the large gates, you see two huge statues of "protectors" (translation: demons). Beyond that is a market place and then another gate with yet more demon representations. As you enter the second gate, you can see people bowing to the false gods before they enter. Then, you're greeted by the smell of incense as you watch people stand around an altar, bathing themselves in the smoke in order to purify themselves. After that, they go to the right where a large water fountain/basin is located so that they can rinse their hands and mouths to purify those. To the left is an atrocity. They have a bronze Buddha called a "healing Buddha." People rub the place on the idol that needs healing and then rub themselves in the same stop. It's terrible. Inside the temple was bad, too. People were throwing money into this large...thing...and clapping their hands before saying a prayer. Yes, they have to pay the gods to listen to their prayers and clap to wake them up. It's the worst. There are two large lantern-like things to either side in which people place small white birthday candles to pray for aborted babies (this is normally done by a family who suffered this tragedy). Beyond this is an area where only members of the temple can enter in which they pray to false gods. Beyond that is something similar to the Holy of Holies in the Jewish temple. Only the monks could enter. I saw someone open the door, and the monks were simply lounging about."... "Outside to the right of the temple was a Shinto shrine. There, someone had brought their new car to get blessed, and we watched as a shrine priest performed a very long ceremony over it. These people are lost. They are so spiritually blind. I've never seen idol worship to this extent before, and it's a sad thing.

Also, yesterday, we did 5 minute English lessons. I felt I was largely unsuccessful. It took a long time for people to come to me, and when they did, they were all men. The problem with that is that I, as a woman, can't ask a man for any sort of friendship without it meaning something...more. And none of them were actually interested in what I had to say. Although, many lost interest when they found out I was with a Christian organization.”

The reason [that faith healing does not work] that stands out above all others is lack of faith. You may say, "I have faith. I know God is able to heal me. But why does He not do it?"

Do you believe He will heal you...now?

You say, "I hope He will. I know God does heal today. I've been to Brother So-and-so's big meeting and seen hundreds healed. But when he laid his hands on me I didn't get healed."

What you have is not faith - it is hope. You hope to be healed. You have knowledge ? you know God is able to heal and does heal. You believe what you have seen, but you do not have faith. Faith is believing what you have not seen, simply because God says it is so (see Hebrews 11:1). If you had faith, you would have already been healed.

A dear sister came to me with a deaf ear. She had been deaf in that ear for many years. She said, "I don't see why I don't get healed. I have as much faith as anyone. I have all the faith in the world." I carefully explained to her that if she had real, living faith to that extent, it would be impossible for her to remain deaf, because real faith works. Faith without works {faith that doesn't work) is dead (James 2:20). Real faith is guaranteed to bring results, for God is faithful to His promises. When she recognized that she was lacking in faith, she humbly asked God to forgive her for doubting Him and to help her unbelief. Immediately, her ear was unstopped.

The "Tea Baggery" Award

Because the admin remembers having to explain to these idiots what they were calling themselves.

Quote# 74981

I wish you were here to call me a "teabagger" to my face. Get with the times, faggot. THAT'S RIGHT! I called you a faggot. You call me a teabagger (meaning a man who sucks the testicles of his boyfriend as they're dangled in his mouth), a very offensive, hate-speech term. So I call you faggot and there isn't a damn think you can say about it. Stop your anti-heterosexual hate speech and I won't call you a faggot anymore. How fair is that!

America right now is in need of an Augusto Pinochet to take over and purge the country of the ugly, vicious Left. I never thought I'd say that, but I now see happening in my country exactly what Pinochet saw happening in his country.

[A woman slept with 1,000 men.]

Throw the Ungodly beast into prison to toughen her up.
Never mind who wants and doesn't want to know her.
She is obviously brought up by a sick mother who taught her Ungodly ways.
Many people from the UK haven't got a clue about what life is really about. She has ruined hers as far as I am concerned.
Her face is mud. Her home defiled. No morals, no dignity and an abomination to God.

Quote# 74850

Wouldn't it be great if, when the kids get to school, they could join in a brief voluntary prayer before the classes start? Just a prayer thanking God for our freedoms and asking Him to watch over America and help each kid do his or her best during that school day? Wouldn't that be so much better than the metal detectors and drug testing and free condoms and abortion counseling that have replaced those prayers?

Wouldn't it be great if teachers still taught kids about who actually created this great nation, and why? About the deep faith and dependence on a God who cared, who instilled in us the yearning for liberty and equality, who motivated the men we call "our Founding Fathers"? About George Washington kneeling, praying in the frozen snow at Valley Forge when it looked like there was no hope for his little ragtag army against the mighty British?

Wouldn't it be great if our kids knew that all the great old colleges in America started out as Bible schools? That every single school kid in those early days attended classes in the Bible, along with arithmetic and geography and history? Wouldn't it be wonderful if that were still the case?
