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."

I don't know, but Glenn didn't seem to mention the LORD Jesus Christ, and what HE did to pay the penalty for our sins on the cross.

2 John 1:7  For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Again, I don't know, but we will all find out, potentially very soon.


DEATH OF AN ASTRONAUT WHO BELIEVED IN GOD (Friday Church News Notes, December 16, 2016, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - John Glenn, one of the original seven American astronauts, died on December 8 at age 95. In 1962, he was the first American to orbit the earth, and in 1998 he was the oldest person to go into space (age 77). Glenn was one of many American astronauts who talked about their faith in God. The following interesting overview was published in the Orlando Sentinel, Nov. 7, 1998. Orlando is only a few miles from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center. “From high above Earth, John Glenn saw the face of God. He is not alone. There is something about the beauty of space, Earth and the universe that touches many astronauts’ spirits. Logic-oriented scientists and daring pilots turn spiritual, some even evangelical, after their space flights. Glenn and most of his Mercury astronauts strongly testified about how faith helped with their groundbreaking flights. The crew of Apollo 8 punctuated the first flight around the moon with a moving reading from Genesis. The first liquid poured and food eaten on the moon occurred when Buzz Aldrin took communion. Apollo astronaut Jim Irwin became an evangelist before his 1991 death. Astronaut Tammy Jernigan talked about her Christian faith in a live broadcast from a shuttle three years ago. Shannon Lucid, the daughter of missionaries, took a minister’s sermons up to the Russian space station Mir. When that space station was damaged in a crash, one of the cosmonauts’ first broadcasts back to Earth was to thank God that they survived. John Glenn ... summed it all up last week while in orbit. ‘To look up out at this kind of creation and not believe in God is to me impossible,’ Glenn said in a Sunday news conference, responding to a reporter’s question. ‘It just strengthens my faith.’ Glenn, a devout Presbyterian, said he was praying every day in orbit. An enhanced faith ‘is pretty common,’ said former astronaut Bryan O’Connor, who used to run the space shuttle program for NASA. ‘I can tell you I felt a sense of awe out there looking at the Earth that I never had before, and it’s easy to relate that to a spiritual kind of thing. It’s almost natural. ... It’s really an accentuator.’ Astronauts usually don't talk about faith much at work, said three-time ex-astronaut Mike Mullane. However, there was an active Bible study group among the astronauts when he flew several years ago. ... ‘It is so incredibly beautiful that it does stir your soul into thinking that there does have to be some Supreme Being,’ Mullane said Monday. Astronaut Dom Gorie ... has vivid memories of looking out the window and thinking there is ‘no other way it could have formed without a creator’” (“Astronauts Faith Isn’t Lost in Space,” Orlando Sentinel, Nov. 7, 1998).
