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.”

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."

(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?

discovery supports Biblical account of Shiloh's destruction

The discovery of a broken clay pitcher in a bed of ashes near Shiloh, the ancient capital of Israel, suggests the city was burned to the ground, according to an article in yesterday's Huffington Post.

The Ark of the Convenant, which was the centerpiece of a Steven Spielberg Indiana Jones movie, was kept in Shiloh by the Israelites around the 12th century B.C. until it was captured by the Philistines. Spielberg's movie was named Raiders of the Lost Ark and included a plot in which the U.S. government asked Indiana Jones to find the Ark before the Nazis did. Although Spielberg's film was fictional, the Ark did actually temporarily fall into the hands of the Philistines in ancient days.

Two Old Testament books Jeremiah and I Samuel describe a devastating defeat of the Israelites by the Philistines near Shiloh.

Huffington Post cited the Tazpit News Agency reports as its basis for the story which states the Book Samuel writes of the battle between the Israelites and the Phillistines, but has never explained exactly how the city was destroyed.

The dating of the pitcher, 1050 B.C.E. combined with the ashes found around it suggests the city was destroyed by fire following the fierce battle.

Previous archaeological finds at the Tel Shiloh dig site indicated that after the major loss to the Philistines, the area continued to be inhabited until 722 B.C.E. Assyria defeated the Kingdom of Israel in that year.

Scholars believe Shiloh was the pre-Jerusalem capital and spiritual center of Israel.

Shiloh is reported to have been the religious center for Israel for approximately 370 years.

The Philistines achieved their battlefield victory at Even Haezel, before moving on to destroy Shiloh, according to Tazpit News Agency.

Shiloh played a major role in the Bible. It was the location where the prophet Samuel received his training from Eli in addition to being where the Israelites kept the Ark of the Covenant along with the Ten Commandments.

Israel in May of 2012 revealed yet another major archaeological find which supported the existence of Bethlehem before the birth of Jesus, which is also consistent with Biblical accounts.
