Perhaps you have noticed that people very often look ten to twenty years younger in their casket than when alive. I believe that reason for this to be the complete relaxation of all facial muscles when the spirits promoting strain and tension leave the body.

A demon called Ugliness is found in many persons. His job is to harass his host by continuously stating the he/she is repulsive and ugly. Ordinarily these spirits are born in a person or enter at such an early age that they seem always to have been there. Even handsome men and very beautiful women can be tormented cruelly by these lying spirits. Self Hatred and Insecurity are found teamed with Ugliness to increase the victim’s misery.

one of the things that makes the atheist argument against faith healing moot is their support for abortion. when a christian does faith healing the athiest is up in arms raising holy hell ready to prosecute the believer and send them to prison in case the child dies BUT when it comes to abortion, very few, if any, athiest rallies against the death of the unborn, do not advocate prosecuting the mother or doctors involved, do not seek imprisonment for those involved in the procedure and so on.

their hypocrisy ruins their opposition to faith healing as they are only against the death of a child if the action is not done their way and approved by them. such people need to remove themselves from any discussion on faith healing for they cannot be honest nor impartial,let alone truthful.

[re: Were the Pyramids built before or after the flood?]

Read again the account of the Flood. The earth forced up water from the deep. The heavens let loose waters from above. The very ground was breaking apart. The entire world was flooded. Every mountain was covered. If the highest mountain was covered, as was recorded, where and how does the water settle? It must cover the rest of the earth. It was not a local flood.
Furthermore the Ark was massive. Noah was commanded to take two of every kind of animal and seven of every clean animal on board with him. Why, if local? The could have just fled to another region. The flood was destructive. It destroyed everything and everyone outside of the Ark. Only Noah and his family were saved. Only 8 people, and that was all. Everyone else perished. The Bible records that the world perished. The world was destroyed. That is why there was a rainbow put in the sky afterward--with the promise that God would never again "destroy" the world with a flood.

When were the Pyramids built? Not before the Flood! It is an impossibility. Nothing survived the flood--nothing! Even the rivers, such as the Euphrates which we have named before the Flood are not the same rivers after the Flood. They were so named out of fond memories that they had from before the Flood.

Before the Flood the entire world had a climate that was much like a greenhouse. After the flood great mountain ranges had been pushed up. There were now volcanoes. There were four season: winter, summer, spring and fall. There was a north and south pole, both of which were cold.There were desert areas which had arid climates. There were climactic regions that were very humid. The whole world had changed from what it was before the flood. It indeed was a different world. Only 8 people had survived that flood. The Pyramids certainly didn't.

[Re: Were the Pyramids built before or after the flood?]

It is evident that they were built post-flood, for any Egyptian civilization (and the people that created it) would have been washed away.

That simple answer is not really all that simple under the hood, however, for it flies in the face of common dating schemes applied to the Scriptures such as Archbishop Usher's view that the earth was created in 4004 BC.

While I admire those who have worked elaborate dating schemes based on the genealogies in Genesis, those schemes do not seem to reflect the reality of our world in complete accuracy. That is not to take away one iota from the Scriptures -- heaven forbid! They are what they are and record what they record, but to date based on the published dates takes into account many an argument from silence and assumes that the Scriptures are the ONLY source of knowing anything, which we know is un-true. Once we see all things clearly, we will realize that the Scriptures are perfectly true but that they simply have not told us EVERY detail that we would need to know to actually date the earth based on their contents.

[re: Pastor Al Martin's sermon blaming women for causing lust in men's hearts]

The magnets Pastor Martin graphically discussed are real for teenager boys and men. Pretending they do not exist is hiding from the issue, as is preferring them not to be discussed because they may embarrass or educate. No males need education of this issue--it comes naturally. Calling any boy or man dirty or lustful because he looks and wonders does not solve the problem either.

Men should "man up" and tell their sisters, wives, mothers, ladies across the aisle, and ladies in the pew in front of them something like:

Excuse me, but you are so pretty that I cannot keep my mind on the sermon. Do you mind if I move?
No wonder, many of the old-line Baptist churches separate the congregation into women and girls on one side, and men and boys on the other side. Some even have separate doors.

Ladies, I am with the conservative reformed crowd on this one. Modest Apparel is an issue for the church. You can do something about this issue. The only thing we boys and men can do is not look at you, not pay any attention to you, and only speak with male companions in your company. Please cover up the magnets before you go to church.

There is no difference between the women of today who have abortions or take RU-486, the abortion pill, and the women in Old Testament times who sacrificed their live newborns at the alter of Molech. Today's woman has simply switched gods. Instead of sacrificing to Molech, she sacrifices to the god of materialism and convenience.

This nation is full of women who have sex outside of marriage (the Bible calls them whores and harlots) and who give gifts to the men who fornicate with them. Half of the country is or has been a harlot or fornicator. If you still haven't understood what the Bible teaches concerning harlotry, let me make a final attempt to clarify. If you are a woman who lost her virginity prior to marriage and it was not due to rape, you are a harlot; a whore. You've heard of Rahab the harlot? Well if you're what I just described then you're ___________ the harlot. Just fill in the blank with your name.

Everyone starts life out in a body with corrupt DNA that causes deception in our thoughts. Only a few people were chosen by God to get our DNA changed later on in life. He started changing my DNA in 1984 and finished changing them on June 14, 2008. This took many commands to confess and repent of my sins and other things he wanted me to do. The whole object of this was to get my body in total obedience to his thoughts and power of light energy, which is who God is.

[On the Egyptian uprising.]

I wish I could share your optimism. I wish I could imagine the Muslim Brotherhood singing "We are the world" along with Michael Obama and Willie Nelson and The Gores lending their spiritual support. I wish I could believe in young idealistic Egyptian students imagining secular,progressive freedom from religion, free speech on their twitter accounts, their right to bear arms, truth, justice, their Facebook right to assemble, and The Egyptian Way.

Unfortunately, I am too old to be that ignorant.

Wake up. Wake up you pompous ignorant ass! What we are witnessing IS the Coming Insurrection, The culmination of leftist, Marxist and Islamic Radicals to destroy Capitalism.

That you chose to view this in any other context is testiment to your utter ignorance of Obamas and the leftist blueprint for global transformation.

Wake up and smell the ashes of slaughtered Jews... or not. Your choice.

I have witnessed the last "democratic uprising" in Iran and now have little patience for ignoramuses.

Quote# 79447

On Tuesday, I posted a column on the settlement of America by Europeans. The column generated so much intense, vitriolic and profane reaction that it threatened to take on a life of its own, and serve as a distraction to the fundamental mission of AFA, even though when I blog I am speaking only for myself and not for the organization. So we took it down.

But the issue I addressed in the column is an important one, and at some point, a rational discussion and debate about it must be held.

The template that the left has generated is that the displacement of indigenous tribes by European colonists and settlers was irredeemably evil. All the land which now comprises the United States was stolen from its rightful owners. Our very presence on this soil is a guilty, tainted presence.

So the question is whether that template is right, or whether the displacement of indigenous nations was consistent with the laws of nature, nature’s God, and the law of nations and history.

A lot is at stake here. If Americans believe that the entire history of our nation rests on a horribly evil foundation, then there is nothing to be proud of in American history, and our president is correct to identify America as the source of all evil in the world and to make a career out of apologizing for her very existence.

If, however, there is a moral and ethical basis for our displacement of native American tribes, and if our westward expansion and settlement are in fact consistent with the laws of nature, nature’s God, and the law of nations, then Americans have much to be proud of.

In a meeting in northern Wisconsin, I mentioned owls and frogs as objects which should not be in your home. The next night a school teacher came for prayer saying the Lord had convicted her to destroy her extensive collection.

When I commanded any spirits connected with the owls to manifest, her mouth dropped open and terrible wails came out. The spirits confessed they were indeed witchcraft demons. They had come in because of the pictures, ceramics and macrames of owls in the house.

Unhappily they shrieked at me, “Why don’t you ever stay home. It was so nice until you came. It’s all your fault, Worley, we hate your guts. You know what she did? She gathered up every owl in the place and burned and broke up every single one! She didn’t miss a one, and she loved us so until you came. We begged her to leave just a few, but she wouldn’t listen. She just bound us and kept right on destroying them. It’s just horrible! Now we’re gonna have to go!”

They were thrown out.

A Georgia state representative known for his extreme opinions says letting gay people serve in the military is equivalent to allowing drug dealers and other criminals in the ranks.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Marietta Daily Journal, Rep. Bobby Franklin said of homosexuality, “The Bible says it’s a capital offense. You want someone with unrepentant criminal behavior? And it’s not just that, neither should adulterers, neither should thieves, neither should a lot of things. The church is full of sinners, but we’re told in 1st Corinthians it rattled off the homosexual, the adulterer, the thief, the liar, and such were some of you, but you’ve been washed, you’ve been justified and so forth. It’s not what you were. You’re not punishing a thought. But do you want an unrepentant drug dealer in the military? Same thing.”

Hi all.
Our 5 year old son told us that he wants to buy flowers for a girl at school during valentines' day, and she likes him. We were shocked to say the least, and we never expected this. We didn't show our shock to him because we are trying to encourage him to speak to us about anything bothering him, in case he encouters some problems at school like bullying. But we don't know how to manage this. We are glad he told us, which gives us an idea of what's happening in his mind, but how do we manage this biblically? Firstly, does he break Matthew 5:28, or is it just an innocent children's stage? Secondly, will this crushes end on their own at some stage, or is it a gateway to fornication?

I just realised just how difficult it is trying to raise children for God.

Quote# 79382

My problem with Richard Dawkins is not that he is an atheist. I admire that. It's that he's a Protestant atheist. Religion, many think, has been slain by the experimental method of science. Beginning with Galileo's experiments on free fall, science has succeeded because it is value-free, objective and proves its points not by nebulous belief but by rigorous logic and verified proof. This is a complete misunderstanding.

The history of the experimental method shows us that, far from being value-free, it was deeply enmeshed with a Protestant myth, as in its post-Protestant phase it continues to be. At fundamental issue in the Reformation was the Catholic idea of nature as a sacrament. In the Catholic view nature is a single organic being with a soul[...]

To the [Protestant] reformers this was the grossest idolatry. To them, God was quite other. They would show, by science, that the universe is a collection of machines, testifying to the wisdom of their manufacturer by their most marvellous ingenuity[...]

Dawkins's understanding of Catholic theology seems to be nil. He thinks that religion teaches that God constructed the world like a watch, science has shown it is able to construct itself, therefore there is no God. How Protestant is that? The intelligibility of God is so bright, according to the great Catholic mystics, it overwhelms our minds with darkness, and can only be penetrated by the will. Science is beginning to suggest that reality might perhaps be like that. Quantum physics is bewilderingly irrationally rational.

A Fairy Warning

"During our recent trip back to the states, we made a visit to Disney World. Of course my young daughters wanted to meet the princesses. Not all the princesses, mind you, since they’ve never seen “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “Mulan,” etc. We explained, to the consternation of our immediate family, that we don’t watch those movies because those girls are not modest and don’t obey their fathers.

The line to meet the princesses was surprisingly short. The longer line was for meeting the fairies. To one unfamiliar with the fairy phenomenon, it was shocking. Who would want to meet a fairy over a princess? But apparently that’s the way these days.

I asked my immediate family, “What sort of role model is a fairy?” They flit capriciously about pursuing their own self interests. They aren’t burdened with responsibilities or any concerns beyond the moment. Princesses, meanwhile, are expected to marry princes as well as to bear and raise offspring.

I tried to explain in greater detail but was pointedly told to shut up and enjoy the ride. And, I guess that about sums up our impression of America after a four-year absence."

Speaking of the liberals attacking Sarah Palin’s children brings me to another subject: Same-sex marriage and child molestation. Like Sarah Palin, I have been attacked on this thread for saying ‘if same-sex marriage becomes legal, then child molesters should not be punished, either’. I have learned that ignorant people hardly ever see the truth, because they are blinded by their own ignorance.
In the USA, traditional marriage (between one man and one woman) allows teenagers of the opposite sex to get married. If same-sex marriage should be legalized, and an adult man married a teenage boy, then that would be the equation to child molestation. Some states allow 14 years to get married, as mentioned on the website below.
Only ignorant people would argue that same-sex marriage is not equal to child molestation. Heck, if same-sex marriage becomes legal, what would stop people from marrying a dog, or a cow, or anything else?

I grew up in small town Missouri, my high school senior class (1963) only had 30 students, yes, I can proudly say that I graduated in the top 30 of my class.

To get to my point however. No one knew of any known homosexuals the whole time I was in school. There was one kid who seemed a little effeminate and we had our suspicions but he did go to the proms and dances with a girl.

Many years later, I found out that he was openly homosexual and living with another man in another state, I wasn’t shocked to learn of it but my point is that “back in the day”, queers had the good sense to shut up about it. I yearn for those days.

After all, how many of us normal people go around shouting about our heterosexuality and wanting special rights and considerations because of it?

The whole "God mode" agenda

In some games, there is an "invincibility mode", which makes the player invulnerable to enemy attacks, so the player will not die. However in recent years, it seems the industry is changing the term "Invincibility mode" to "God mode". I think that this is another way Satan wants people to think that they are gods, when they are really not (Genesis 3:5). But there is only one God (Mark 12:32).

Can any of you who do not believe in God answer a question for me?

here is a picture. Without looking at the country names, can you find Israel? Once you find Israel, could you explain to me a couple of things. First off, given that every country in the region hates Israel and has vowed to remove Israel... from being a nation, and removing God from the equation as this is for non-believers, how is it still there? On their first day of being pronounced a nation, five surrounding countries waged war and lost big time. How did Israel beat them after being a nation less than a day. How is it that this little country has not been destroyed, and remains the "stumbling block" for the whole world. How can these, and other things be, if God is not in the equation?

The opinion that one should be pro-life with exception to rape/incest/health reasons/etc. almost makes less sense to me than being pro-abortion. By that logic, one should go around euthanizing the elderly and children who receive inadequate care simply because they’re ‘burdens’ on a family economy. I’d hazard a guess that many of these people who want abortion ‘exceptions’ are indifferent towards the coming death panels Obamacare is going to be mandating.

I’ve got the solution to all this. I’ve got the solution to most crime in America. From this day forward, somebody propose it, liberals should not be allowed to buy guns. It’s just that simple. Liberals should have their speech controlled and not be allowed to buy guns. I mean if we want to get serious about this, if we want to face this head on, we’re gonna have to openly admit, liberals should not be allowed to buy guns, nor should they be allowed to use computer keyboards or typewriters, word processors or e-mails, and they should have their speech controlled. If we did those three or four things, I can’t tell you what a sane, calm, civil, fun-loving society we would have. Take guns out of the possession, out of the hands of liberals, take their typewriters and their keyboards away from ‘em, don’t let ‘em anywhere near a gun, and control their speech. You would wipe out 90% of the crime, 85 to 95% of the hate, and a hundred percent of the lies from society.
