May 28, 2015, 11:26:56 am 1st Timothy 6:13-14 says: Psalms 50:23  Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
May 28, 2015, 04:26:32 am Christian40 says: preaching the word of God their would be great caution there with that forum though

May 27, 2015, 04:32:48 am Christian40 says: It seems if we get to September all the Illuminati cards are going to be displayed on the board at the same time even the ET's might make an evil appearance.
May 27, 2015, 04:29:39 am Christian40 says: Yeah nationalism was a factor across Europe before WW1. Seems history is repeating itself just in different parts of the world this time.
May 26, 2015, 01:56:28 pm 1st Timothy 6:13-14 says: 5 weeks from now, the USSC will be making a "historic" ruling too. All of this going on at the same time are no coincidence at all.
May 26, 2015, 11:35:49 am Mark says: We are just 1 incident away from WW III. With China Japan and the US in the Pacific and Russia NATO and the US over the arctic. And do not forget the already ongoing muslim civil war that is spiraling way out of control. ISIS and Iran are on Israel's borders already.
May 25, 2015, 12:58:07 pm 1st Timothy 6:13-14 says: Yeah, the last sentence in particular. Too bad, b/c Morris's anti-gap exposes are very good.
May 25, 2015, 06:02:08 am Christian40 says: "The Bible does have the answer; its gospel can be defended; and it is hoped that this New Defender's Study Bible will prove of significant help in this great cause to those who use it. Its annotations explain the Bible's difficult passages, resolve its alleged contradictions, point out the evidences of its divine origin, confirm its historical accuracy, note its remarkable anticipations of modern science, demonstrate its fulfilled prophecies and in general remove any doubts about its inerrancy, its authority and its ability to meet every human need."—Dr. Henry M. Morris, The New Defender's Study Bible (Nashville, TN: World Publishing, 2006), p. iv. ICR's online version of The New Defender's Study Bible is the companion to the printed version, The Henry Morris Study Bible, available at ICR's online store. We encourage you to use both versions in your study of God's truth." http://www.icr.org/defenders/ any red flags there?
May 24, 2015, 04:23:16 am Christian40 says: Kent Hovind holds to the King James Bible there are other so called "creation ministries" that use the modern perversions so we need to be careful what we are hearing we need to hear from those that promote the King James Bible.

Mar 9:43  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
Mar 9:44  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Shocked

So-called "worms from hell" have been unearthed, and they have raised the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Is ET in these crazy, long organisms? They were found deep below the surface of the Earth, and now they have scientists thinking about the possibilities of this type of life form elsewhere.

The reason for the name "worms from hell" is because these creatures lived more than a mile below the Earth's surface, which must be fairly close to Hell at least by some estimations. They are actually called nematodes, or roundworms, and they were found in South African gold mines.

Tullis Onstott, lead researcher on the project, said, "This is telling us something brand new. For a relatively complex creature like a nematode to penetrate that deep is simply remarkable." The worms have nervous, digestive, and reproductive systems, which is what makes them complex.

Before this dramatic discovery, many researchers believed that such lifeforms could not live in an environment like that found so far under the Earth. Could this discovery mean that there is life on Mars or the Moon or on other planets throughout the Solar System? It certainly opens up the possibility, which is pretty amazing.

Of course, the name "worms from hell" may need a little work, but there is time for that. For now, science gets to imagine the possibilities of this extraordinary discovery, and that is what it is all about.

I imagined God removing arms and legs of those cast into the lake of fire; a human without limbs would look like a worm.
And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off; would it be a stretch to think God would cut off arms and legs?

"The giant Gippsland earthworm, Megascolides australis, is one of Australia's 1,000 native earthworm species. These Giant earthworms average 100 cm long and 2 cm in diameter and can reach 3 m in length. They have a dark purple head and a blue-grey body.

They live in the subsoil of blue, grey or red clay soils along stream banks and some south or west facing hills of their remaining habitat which is in Gippsland in Victoria, Australia.

These worms live in deep burrow systems and require water in their environment to respire. These worms rarely leave their moist burrows. They have relatively long life spans for invertebrates and can take 5 years to reach maturity. They breed in the warmer months and produce large egg cocoons which are laid in their burrows. When these worms hatch in 12 months they are already 20 cm long.

They can sometimes be heard in their habitat making gurgling sounds as they move underground.

Located near the town of Bass is the Giant Earthworm Museum. This building allows tourists to crawl through a magnified replica of a worm burrow and a simulated worm's stomach. Displays and educational material on the Giant Gippsland earthworm and other natural history of Gippsland are featured.

As with many of Australia’s native species, European colonisation has resulted in the decline of the Giant Gippsland earthworm and they are now a protected species. Some farmers in the area have stopped raising cattle and have begun planting crops. When the farmers till the ground many of the worms are severed, and some scientists believe that worms are killed as a result of the tilling. Thus, the giant earthworm is in danger of becoming extinct."

"I was looking through google trends today and noticed that their was a lot of buzz on the internet over Giant South African Earthworms. What so special about Giant South African Earthworms?

The Microchaetus rappi more commonly know as the Giant South African Earthworm can grow to over 20 feet long! In 1967 a world record setting specimen 22 feet long was found beside a road in William’s Town, South Africa.

Although I wasn’t able to find any pictures of this 22 foot monster. I did find this smaller version above."

Gen 3:14  And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Mat_13:38  ... but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
1Jn_3:10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil:
