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;

Start by reading any of the 4 gospels FIRST in the New Testament, and Genesis in the Old Testament(b/c that's when God's creation starts). One chapter each of Psalms and Proverbs(2 of the big wisdom books in the entire bible).

For a new believer, I wouldn't YET start with one of the smaller epistles in particular like Peter, I/II/III John, and James, as well as one of the bigger ones like Hebrews b/c it's more on the spiritual meat side, and new believers need to be filled with spiritual milk first.

For example, take this passage in I John...

1Jn 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1Jn 2:16  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.


Does this passage mean if, let's say, a born again believer watches football, basketball, or race car games(I'm a fan of the first 2 myself) regularly, he or she wasn't somehow saved to begin with? Of course not! Won't go into further study on this, but for anyone that READS AROUND this passage in I John 2, you will see the CONTEXT of what this passage is trying to tell you. But nonetheless a new believer may read this and automatically think something like, "Oh no! I get lustful thoughts seeing such and such movie star, or am too big of a fan of baseball, or I somehow happened to fell in love with xmas displays at Wal-Mart, that I may not be a lover of God!". See the point here?

Also, when they get to Acts, it has to be read VERY carefully b/c this leans more on the HISTORICAL side(as it's more of a transition book when the gospel is first given to the Apostles to preach in Israel) - so it may not be a bad idea for a new believer not to dive into it too soon.

But yeah...my personal tips is each day for a new believer, start with a chapter of the 1st 4 gospels, a chapter of Genesis(the book that started it all), and a chapter in Psalms and Proverbs. And maybe after a couple of weeks or so, they can go into one of the major epistles like Romans.
