September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

26   Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 
27   Neither give place to the devil.
Ephesians 4:26,27 (KJB)


Speaking of this passage, doesn't it make anyone else just a tad bit mad when Churchianity of today makes up these doctrines that are WAY out of whack?

For example, can't tell you how many people I've crossed paths with that claimed to be *incredibly spiritual* b/c they pray, fast, and read their bibles much, much more than anyone else. So it's as if there's not an ounce of worldliness, and even sin in their flesh and bones - that they were rewarded by being anointed as a prophet(or even an Apostle) by God by being shown all of these "visions"(and yes, that includes somehow that they can see other people's sins and demonic spirits). So ultimately they achieved this level of *pureness* which is how they got to be where they are(supposedly).

For one, it's NOT in scripture(in the King James Bible scripture, that is) - remember when Peter denied Jesus 3 times? Or how about Thomas? Didn't he INSIST that he had to SEE Jesus in his resurrected body for himself before he believed? Wasn't Paul on his way to Damascus to persecute more Christians before Jesus came to him(and appointed him an Apostle shortly thereafter)? Or how about the night when Jesus was lead away by the chief priests for crucifixition? Didn't he have to urge his disciples to stay awake to pray, and how the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak?(then went on to let them have their sleep)

Uhhh...it wasn't like Peter, Thomas, Paul, etc had to "achieve" some "high level of pureness" with some "hard praying and studying" to get to be Apostles, right? There were a couple of other instances where Peter was rebuked(one by Paul in Galatians).

And can't tell you other times when we hear stuff like how "such and such pastor had this *vision* to build a million dollar church, and to set up Christian marriage counseling b/c God gave him a vision to do so". Whatever...

Aren't these other cases when it just makes your blood boil a tad bit? Seriously - they are setting a REALLY bad example to other Christians, both baby and non-baby. When other Christians are then trying to mold themselves after these people, and then see they themselves aren't getting any so-called "visions", "dreams", "achieving pureness", etc...they're going to go crazy and potentially fall away from the faith.
