Sermon 3: Food Stamps and Lotto Tickets
By Bro. Steven R.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat."
1 Timothy 6:10 "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."
When I was younger, it was a shame to be on food stamps. Remember when they had those actual paper stamps you had to trade in to get your food? It was meant to shame people into getting off the government dole and into gainful employment!!!!!
Nowadays, they have these slick little EBT cards that look like regular debit cards, and people can pretend to be just like productive taxpayers using their hard earned cash to buy groceries! NOT ONLY THAT, THEY SUBSIDIZE YOU USING FOOD STAMPS TO BUY RED BULL AND LITTLE DEBBIE SNACK CAKES INSTEAD OF BEANS AND RICE LIKE YOU SHOULD BE EATING!!!
In the inner cities, gas stations proudly announce that they take EBT. So people use their food stamps to get Slim Jims and Pepsi Cola and use cash to buy lotto tickets and a pack of Marlboro Menthols! It's wicked! This is probably most people who live in these low income trashy neighborhoods! Lots of single moms whose baby daddy can't pay up for child support or he's incarcerated or something but he doesn't care about his kids! This is what happens when you throw biblical marriage out the window in favor of fornication and sexual excess! Illiterate trashy folks on food stamps popping out babies! It's just shameful and sinful! Say AMEN in the house of the living God!
Not to mention those who sell their food stamps in order to buy crack! Fraud and drug abuse! Federal crimes! Then they have the nerve to ask churches for food and cash! I bet some liberal churches even give it to them! Poor single moms, man-children who play Halo on their Xbox, homosexuals, transsexuals, and other such reprobate are the ones who are taking these taxpayer dollars to subsidize wickedness!
I We especially shouldn't be giving them to women, because women were designed by God to be less intelligent than men and thus shouldn't be handling any finances! It's just how it is, sorry to disappoint any feminists!
We need to get these able bodied and able minded losers off the government cheese and into factories and warehouses to contribute to society! Don't let them use fake disabilities like "restless leg syndrome" or "depression" or "PTSD" or "autism" to try to stay on the government dole and defraud the government with fake disability claims either!!! Say NO to laziness and say AMEN to godliness!

Sermon 4: Working Hard
By Rev. William H. Grimes
I have a short sermon on 2 Thessalonians 3:10 today. It reads "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." What does this mean? You MUST WORK! God condemeth the lazy!
The US government has rewarded laziness and called it welfare. Food stamps are of the devil! What's the largest purchase made with food stamps? SODA!!!!! SODA HAS ZERO NUTRITIONAL VALUE BUT THESE LAZY WELFARE QUEENS BUY SODA WITH FOOD STAMPS AND PAY FOR CIGARETTES AND LOTTERY TICKETS WITH CASH! WOE IS TO THE LAZY! Go to any gas station and you WILL see this abomination unto the Lord!
Medicaid, food stamps, Social Security, and all these other programs are for the sick and the elderly! They aren't for lazy able bodied and able minded people, including those with FAKE DISABILITIES SUCH AS AUTISM! GOD IS TELLING YOU TO WORK! GET YOUR LAZY AND NASTY REAR OFF THE SOFA, AND GO GET A JOB! HARD WORKING EVERYDAY AMERICANS AREN'T GONNA SUPPORT YOUR SODA AND JUNK FOOD ADDICTION! STOP BUYING STEAK WITH YOUR FOOD STAMPS AND BUY BEANS WITH YOUR HARD EARNED CASH! BREAK A SWEAT! WORK! STOP BEING A WELFARE QUEEN LIVING BETTER THAN THE LABORERS IN THIS COUNTRY! God's people said

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is bringing back a popular series on the dark side of gaming. Will there be more issues in this series in the future? That is up to you. If there is a massive support for this series and we can come up with new ideas to write about then the answer is yes. If there is not much support, and we can come up with no new ideas then the answer is no. It is a scary time in our world and in our country. There are those that have embraced the redefinitionist movement and embraced redefined words, morals, ethics, deeds, institutions, roles, and more. In almost every case those that have embraced these redefinitions are actually openly rebelling against God. They try to terrorize anyone who stands up for God. They attempt to silence anyone who embraces traditional definitions of words, morals, ethics, deeds, institutions, roles, and more. We are seeing this in the video game industry as well. In some ways it has gotten even more scary as there are people actually embracing darkness in the video game industry.

Look at how many of the “popular” games on the worldly gaming websites and magazines have you play the bad guy. Look at how many of the new “AAA” titles have morally ambiguous choices the player is expected to enact. It used to be a few evil, vile and wicked games here and there. It has become a trend where evil is being celebrated, and good is being shunned. What does that do to the brain of the players that immerse themselves in this radicalized belief set? What kind of punishment will God doll out to our nation for this open disobedience and rebellion? What punishments did God give out to past civilizations for this kind of dark behaviour? Why would anyone want to bring that down on our heads? What can be done to correct the course? How do we get the entire industry to move away from celebrating darkness? Family Friendly Gaming constantly tries to educate everyone to join us into the light. We won’t force you. We won’t coerce you. We won’t brow beat you. If you choose that path that leads to destruction we will pray you turn from those wicked ways.

I talk to a variety of different kinds of gamers to understand where they are coming from. I talk to a variety of people in video game companies at different levels. I talk to a variety of PR and Marketing people to see what trends they are seeing. The troubling trend of embracing darkness over light is strong in the video game industry. I openly admit this trend is scary on multiple different fronts. I have sounded the alarm. You choose how to react to it.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

"The Failed Legacy Speaks"




Transcript:
Barack Obama (presumably)
All this talk about the economy. Let's not forget...uhh...when this recovery began - back in...uhh...2015! We didn't have all this strife and division. This persecution of FBI and DOJ...the racism.

Cable Guy:
Cable Guy here. Gotta admire your style, Barack! All those pauses to admire your profound pontificatin'...the way you look down your nose at the useful idiots...classic! None of 'em wanna hear how you were too much of a boob to destroy American in eight whole years. Then along comes this Trump feller getting it turned around in one year--in spite of looney tune dimocrats and their pet media!

But ain't that the point of Marxism? All nations must be the same, which means the West has to take a dive. You tried to do that with your job-killin' regs; your race baitin'; crooked FBI, DOJ, IRS, EPA and all that alphabet soup! Your hold-over stooges are still throwin' wrenches in the works, and we gotta admire that kinda loyalty!

But you're takin' too much credit, Mr. O. Could it be you're a useful idiot yourself? It ain't just Trump that has an IQ way higher than yours--there's also that infernal dude that pulls a lot of puppet strings, a dude you don't even believe in!

Hold still while I find me a fly swat--there's somethin' on your shoulder. And keep showin' the voters who and what dimocrats really are!

Quote# 141502

I think it is important to consider that Obamacare has raised health insurance premiums tremendously, and in doing so has forced more Americans than ever in the Medicaid program, which is objectively the worst health care program in the developed world. The fact that they will pay for enabling a lifestyle of sinful delusions regardless of whatever you want to call it, but will not treat legitimate medical conditions shows how liberal Obamacare has its priorities way out of whack. It is also true that pumping men with estrogen tremendously increases the chance for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and other conditions, and proves how inefficient government and the liberal agenda is. --William Grimes (talk) 16:00, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Have you ever met Dr. John Whitcomb or did you ever meet Henry Morris? If you have been to the Creation Museum in Kentucky, you know that they have a festive oriental dragon suspended from the ceiling of the main entrance lobby. There have been a lot of discoveries, as you know, of dinosaur bones with soft tissue still intact, also, which has merely meant that the old earth professors are now saying that tissue can last for millions and millions of years--an idea that the rejected until it became inconvenient. So the dragon stories worldwide suggests that dinosaurs were on the ark with Noah and his wife and three sons and their wives, from whom we are all descended.

Quote# 141482

Emails obtained by the Observer reveal that members of the Tarrant County Republican Party plan to hold a training by notorious Islamophobe John Guandolo at an undisclosed location on December 29 — less than two weeks before the local party is set to vote on whether to oust four of its members, one who is Muslim and another who is married to a Muslim.

The emails, sent by Republican precinct chair Dale Attebery to a group of selected precinct chairs and invitees, bill the training as a six-hour class by Guandolo titled: “School: Islam and Sharia vs. the U.S. Constitution.” Guandolo is an ex-FBI agent living in the Dallas area who makes a living by hawking virulently anti-Islam trainings and DVDs to citizens and law enforcement officials.

In the emails, both sent in late November, Attebury claims that around 100 people will attend the late December training, including precinct chairs, local police and perhaps the chair of the Tarrant County GOP. Attebury promises a “personal presentation by Mr. John Guandolo” that will include “absolute proof on everything presented” and “facts/figures that will frighten you.” Attebury does not disclose the location of the training, citing a “need to keep a level of secrecy for a time.”

Attebury paints an urgent cause for the training. “Because we need to know the truth before January 10, there is no option,” he writes. “Because we are losing Tarrant County [to Muslims], just like Dearborn, MI was lost.”

So what’s happening on January 10? As reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the Associated Press, the party is voting whether to oust four members, including Dr. Shahid Shafi, the Muslim vice chair of the local GOP, and precinct chair Lisa Grimaldi Abdulkareem, whose husband is Muslim. The vote is the culmination of a long Islamophobic campaign driven by local activists such as Sara Legvold, who has defended apartheid and reposted stories on social media from white supremacist site Stormfront.

Or “Marching Through Georgia” to Southerners who survived the Civil War. It doesn’t have that connection to most modern Southerners, though.

Marching Through Georgia damn sure has that connotation to me, and whenever I hear “battle hymn of the republic” I am thoroughly revolted.

It’s as though the North didn’t quite believe they had actually won, and needed to go on putting down the South. Well, here we are 123 years later, and what has changed?

Nothing.

There’s nobody north of the Mason-Dixon line with the peace chiefs’ wisdom, or Reverend Hart’s moxie.

And rubbing Southerners’ noses in our “heritage” of slavery and cruelty while ignoring the discriminatory behavior going on TODAY in the former “Union” states and expansions thereof — don’t tell me it isn’t happening, and not just to young black men but to Native American women, black women, and Latinx people as well as Hawaiian and Alaskan natives — does nothing to reduce the residual resentment.

Abortion is against God's plan for each of us. What if the child being aborted is the one that God created to find the cure for cancer, or diabetes, heart disease or to be the one that leads this country back to the christian foundation that it was founded upon. The Bible is God's word for us and He says that He knows us before we are formed and he formed us in our mother's womb. Conception is not an accident we know that when a man and woman comes to together sometimes a child is conceived but only if God allows it to happen. God holds the keys to life and death and there is only one true God. All the other religions put their faith in a dead prophet but my Redeemer lives and walks with me each and every day. I pray for everyone who does not know him and if you have any questions about my Lord I will be glad to try to answer them. I the mean time I do not intend to try to offend anyone by my position on this subject I am just letting you know what is on my heart. God Bless each of you and may God live in your heart.

My Pastor made an interesting comment this morning in church...
He was saying about how the government is trying to take the Bible completely out of schools. There is next to know teachings about God in schools. Now this is the same government who has declared that only evolution is to be taught in schools. Now why does that not raise red flags to those who claim to believe in God? If this godless government is stipulating that is the truth and the only thing to be taught why on earth would a Christian automatically go against the Bible and say evolution is true?! It is very troubling!

Quote# 141511

What does the Bible say about ‘Thanos and his ‘Infinity Stones”?

As Christians, there is so much we can say about this very popular ‘hot topic’, but it’s simply not worth our precious time dwelling on it for too long. However, I do want to address it a little as the whole ‘Avengers Infinity War’ craze is influencing millions of children all around the world, so it’s another great opportunity to share the TRUTH with them.

So, here are some of the immediate things that I think about when I look at ‘Thanos and his quest for the Infinity Stones’.
The Gauntlet

And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: – Genesis 3:22

The very first mention of the word “hand” in Scripture is just after man has sinned against God for the first time. So it’s interesting that in order to acquire all the ‘universal power’ that this Thanos character desires, he needs SIX (the number of man and the beast – Revelation 13:18) stones to insert in a ‘glove’ he wears on his hand. If he gets all of these stones, then he can pretty much do whatever he wants in the universe, including completely destroying all life in it.

Now of course, this particular situation is just comic book fiction, BUT, in reality there IS indeed one who wants (and has always wanted) this same power and worship – Satan, the Devil.

From before time began for man, Lucifer (as was Satan’s original, good name) has wanted ultimate power, and to be like God Almighty. This is what caused him to rebel against God in the first place – the sin of pride:

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. – Isaiah 14:12-14.

During the Tribulation period (the terrible 7 years of time that is fast approaching), standing in the midst of the development of the third temple in Jerusalem, the Antichrist (another ‘label’ for the Devil) will declare himself to be God:

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) – Matthew 24:15.

And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate … And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. – Daniel 11:31, 36-38.

The Antichrist will profess to be God in the flesh (2 Thess. 2). And as such, he will install himself as the object of worship (Rev. 13).

Satan has always desired to be like God. He wasn’t happy with what he was given; he wanted to be on the same level as God Almighty.

God created Lucifer the most beautiful being, covered in all sorts of precious stones:

Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. – Ezekiel 28:13-15.

But when Lucifer sinned and rebelled against God, he was thrown out of Heaven, and then given the new name of Satan – the deceiver.

That’s another interesting thought about Thanos’ need for these precious stones, and that he cannot do anything without them. It’s almost like an example of Satan’s original beauty and status that he so desperately wants to get back.
The Infinity Stones

I’ve taken a quick look at each of these fictional stones and their fictional meanings, and had some immediate Bible verses spring to mind as I read (there’s so many other verses!). I’ve listed them here for you to read and study yourself, which hopefully will then give you confidence to witness to your friends and family who enjoy all the Avengers stuff, about the TRUTH as written in God’s word.
Space Stone

infinity_stones - Copy (3)

Creates interstellar bridges from one end of space to the other.

I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. – 2 Corinthians 12:2.

Paul was caught up from Earth into Heaven.

And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. – Acts 8:39.

Philip was transported miles in a blink of an eye.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. – 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

All saved Christians will be caught up in the air in a twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52) to meet the Lord Jesus Christ.

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. – Hebrews 11:5.

Enoch was translated from Earth to Heaven immediately.

Only God Almighty can do all this, and He doesn’t need any gauntlet or precious stones! God is Omnipresent.
Mind Stone

infinity_stones

Primarily used to control minds.

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. – 2 Corinthians 4:3-4.

The greatest and most difficult battlefield today is not found in ‘Wakanda’ or on another planet, it’s in our minds.

The god of this world is Satan, and he blinds the minds of people from the Truth of God’s word and the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Devil does this through many various methods, such as keeping us as busy as possible with the things of the world.

People are so distracted with what the world is doing or has to offer, that they simply do not have time to think about the things of God – Bible, life, death, eternity, love, compassion, and so on. This is what Satan wants, because by keeping people away from the Truth of the Bible, he is keeping them on the road to Hell. He also uses false teachings, religions, ‘good’ deeds, and many other deceptions to achieve his goal of sending as many people as possible to Hell when they die.

God Almightly wants to make you free from this deception:

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. – John 8:32.

He wants you free from the bondage of sin, and offers His salvation free of charge to anyone who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ.

God is Omniscient.
Reality Stone

infinity_stones - Copy (2)

Turns matter into dark matter by binding with a host and absorbing their life force.

Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. – John 8:41-44.

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians 6:11-12.

(See the Armour of God post for more on this).

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: – 1 Peter 5:8.

Everyone is born with the Devil as their father, because everyone is born in sin. The Devil enjoys keeping his children in the bondage of sin and darkness. He destroys them through drugs, war, violence, crime, diseases, deception, etc.; this is the reality of life.

Satan wants people dead as quickly as possible so that they don’t have time to learn about and accept the free gift of salvation that God offers everyone through the Lord Jesus Christ’s blood and His death, burial, and resurrection.

In order for a person to get into Heaven when they die, they MUST be born again in this life by the Spirit of God (John 3:3). Learn how this is done, by visiting the Salvation page.
Power Stone

infinity_stones - Copy (4)

Destroys planets just by touching the stone to the surface.

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. – Matthew 28:18.

Absolute and unlimited.

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; – 2 Timothy 4:1.

And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; – 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9.

When the Lord Jesus Christ returns, it won’t be as a baby in manger again. No sir, He means business!

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. – 2 Peter 3:9-10.

God is Omnipotent.
Time Stone

infinity_stones - Copy (5)

Can reverse or accelerate time.

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) – 2 Corinthians 6:2.

Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. – Proverbs 27:1.

God lives in eternity where He alone controls everything. No one knows when He will return, so you must come to Him today for salvation before it’s too late!
Soul Stone

infinity_stones - Copy

Not much is known, but is considered the greatest threat out of all six Infinity Stones.

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. – Genesis 2:7.

And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy1 soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. – Luke 12:16-21.

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. – Matthew 10:28.

Everyone is a living soul. The body dies, but the soul does not – it goes to either Heaven or Hell. Dying without Christ is the greatest threat to every unsaved person, because it means that your soul will spend eternity in Hell and torments. Get right with God today to guarantee your place in Heaven.
Final Thoughts

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. – Genesis 1:1.

Friend, God Almighty is the Creator of all things. He loves you and wants you to be with Him in eternity when you die. If you are not a saved Christian, then make sure you get right with God today, because without Him, you are condemned in this life, and also after you die, where you will spend eternity in Hell. This won’t be God’s fault (nothing is), it will be YOURS, because you have rejected the free gift of salvation that He has provided through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Make sure that your ‘Avengers loving friends’ also know about this!

And remember, the Devil is already a defeated foe. When God is finished with him, his eternal destination is the lake of fire; DON’T go there with him!

And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. – Revelation 20:9-10.

Oh yes…

Just because we can see the Devil in the Thanos character, does NOT mean that we can see God in the Avengers characters. Certainly NOT! But that’s for another post in 2019 perhaps.

Has anyone noted how open Creationist / "Creation" Scientists are to open debates in public forums, in scientific circles and schools? Whereas, Evolutionists / "Evolutionary" Scientists seem to avoid these forums whenever possible? Instead of being champions of "Free Thought" like Creationist demonstrate over and over... Evolutionists resort to insulting, marginalizing, undermining and restricting "Free Thought" that oppose them - Why? If they are right about this topic, why don't they seize each & every opportunity to prove it?

[NOTE: It is equally wrong for any religion to "force" or "shame" a belief system (i.e. like Creationism) on anyone. It violates an individual's God-given right to "Self-determination" and "Choice."]

And if Creationists are so wrong... then why are they so willing to talk out in the open; invite debate & discussion on such a foolish belief? People on the losing end of ANY debate (i.e. lacking facts, evidence, commonsense, stats...etc) AVOID open debates... seek to control what others believe... belittle non-conformists ...and... ahhh... hmmm... these sounds of 'retreat' sound more like strategy used by the all knowing Evolutionists... -interesting.

-You decide...

I’m afraid the whole concept of ‘interfaith relations’ is in error. The Bible is quite clear:

Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 [ESV])

There can be no truth in other religions, they are simply man made, nothing else. There can be no reconciling between them and Christ, for they lead men to damnation. There is no possibility of light mixing with darkness.

Chris

The narrative in Genesis 1 & 2 is quite clear, what is there to interpret? If it isn't historical narrative, how can you draw any lessons from it, it is just a story.

And if you had never heard of Evolution, would you disbelieve Genesis 1 & 2?

Is Jesus from the Walking Dead TV show actually the real Jesus?

No, there are multiple ‘saviors’ on the TV Show, but only one in real life.

Not being familiar with this series, I can’t tell whether there are good moral lessons.

It may be helpful to examine just who Jesus was. A man who could say, “Before Abraham was, I AM,” or “I AM the Resurrection and the Life,” but also weep publicly at the death of his friend Lazarus, is no ordinary mortal. If HE was the Messiah, he certainly fulfilled all the prophesies about HIM.

Why would we need the Messiah? Because Adam & Eve disobeyed their Creator, ate of the fruit of the Forbidden Tree, thus committing the Original Sin; a sin so serious that it destroyed grace in their souls, closed Heaven, and was passed on to their descendants. Since the offense was directly against God Himself, it could only be repaired or overcome by a Divine Person, and that Person was Jesus Christ!

Sounds like a fairy tale? No one knows the particulars—what did Adam & Eve look like, [hint: they certainly did not ACT like apes]; what did the Garden of Eden look like; what did the Serpent look like; what kind of fruit did they eat; what did the Tree look like? Or is this some kind of myth produced in order to explain why humans are so different from the other living creatures on this Earth?

There had to be first parents. Of all visible and living creatures, we seem to be the only ones with Free Will. Humans invent, anything from automobiles to pins; brute beasts do not. Humans build houses and skyscrapers; brute beasts build nests and beaver-houses, but each species seems to make the same kind of house—except humans!

Jesus Christ came in order to repair the damage caused by Original Sin. Does the TV show do that? Jesus is called ‘savior’ because HE alone suffered and died for mankind, thus saving us from our sins. Does anyone do this in the TV show?

Hope that helps!

[this is the beginning of a thread]
i want to know the scientific explination for everything.

you can give it to me one thing at a time.

but.....

i will employ in my acceptance the same rule all atheists here seem to employ us Christians.

NO internet sources
NO study information
NO book references
NO TV specials
NO word-of-mouth references

All of these are unreliable as sources for Christians, so they are also for non-Christians.


in other words, the existance of Darwin will, for the purpose of this thread, be considered a myth.
as for any other scientist outside of me and you.

............................................GO!!!!

Better to be anti “science” and pro-God than anti-God and pro- “science”. Science won’t get you to Heaven.

Warning: Former Evolutionist's Testimony...

Evolution Definition: The changing of one species into an entirely new lifeform.

Occam's Razor: "When you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better."

As a former, super devout evolutionist... this simple approach, mixed with that old fashioned scientific method (Theory, Observation & Conclusion)... and using just plain old commonsense... forever destroyed my faith in evolution... why?

1. Neither Creationism nor Evolution can be proven by the Scientific Method. (i.e. -neither can be observed)

2. Only Creationism honestly explains (in simple terms) where Space, Time, Energy & Matter came "from" 1 second before the Big Bang. Evolution cannot... why? Unlike Creationism (a supernatural / Trans-reality concept) ... Evolution can only explain what happened 1 Second "After" the Big Bang... because it is completely stuck with time & space. It does not know where Space, Time, Energy & Matter came from.

3. Why is it so hard to believe there is a Super Scientist (called God) with a lab existing outside our reality who intelligently planned & cooked up this awesomely cool reality (With such diversity... exists?

4. Creationism explains that a perfectly created life form was designed (with 1 or 2 sexes per species) and is perfectly suitable for its environment... or able to adapt (without changing species) to other environments.

5. Evolution cannot explain how changing species (or half baked) lifeforms in the middle of change could survive, adapt, mate and/or survive. Single sex lifeforms... perhaps... but we have two sex species on this planet. So, how did male & female species know how & when to evolve into a new sexually compatible lifeform... at the same time... in the same locale in order to mate, reproduce and prevent extinction? Random chance? Repeated billions of times for each life form? And you laugh at our belief in a Creator who did all this... intentionally? - Wow!

6. Scientist can't make up their minds about evolution... life... the beginnings of our reality. I got tired of them always changing their minds. They are frustrated little 'gods' who like to complicate the simplistic... because if God exists... that's just too humbling for many to handle.

Conclusion: The Creation Museum is open to scrutiny... they don't mind... they love discussing the science, facts, proofs that (don't prove) but best & easily support their beliefs better than Evolutionists do. They don't shy away from talking to Evolutionists... just the opposite.

I grew up watching Evolutionists insult and arrogantly close their minds to "alternate" beliefs... especially supernatural ones... that threatened their fragile belief system. Evolutionists see "truth" as something to fear... and perhaps they are right. But for the Creationist... truth is a welcomed friend.

Why? Someone tell me why! God is so silent now! I used to ask and have Him answer me! I would talk to Him and He to me. But now it is like a strained relationship. He does not talk anymore. He is strangly silent. Does it say anything about this in the Word? I would like to know...

Quote# 141407

Since salvation is by an act of God, the raising to life those dead in sin, then it is not a requirement that sinners are persuaded of the truth of the gospel by the arguments we present.

Equally, the Resurrection could be described as a stumbling block, for how can a dead man rise from the dead? Are you therefore going to omit the resurrection because it is a stumbling block to belief?

Evolution is not 'the best fit for the facts', for it fits none of the facts of science. We do not see any malleability of life at the highest level, all we see is minor changes. There has been an experiment under way since February 1988 to measure Evolution in the E. coli bacteria. Although they claim to have to have seen Evolution in reality there has been none. The E. coli remain E. coli.

We are called to proclaim the whole council of God, not just those things that seem reasonable to our hearers.
