The Economics of God [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2017-06-16 08:23:53 by Vicomte13
Nearly everythigng in Scriptrue has an economic component, and God has used economic realities to shape the world since the beginning. Indeed, at irs origin "economics" is a composite word, consisting of the Greek "oikos", meaning "house", and "nomes", meaning "law". So, economics is "the law of the household", Of course the aggregate of a hundred million households makes for some mighty numbers, but the same fundamental needs drive each household, and each person, and each animal, and this is by design. When God made the world, as described in Genesis, he first created the physical structures of its existence. The first ...
Scripture & Smoke 25: Mthw Ch. 24; Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Lancero
Post Date: 2017-05-20 23:20:15 by hondo68
Published on May 20, 2015 Here we are getting to the end of Gospel of St. Matthew. Here we read about how the second coming of Christ would be. This passage is directly related to the events of this past weekend as we celebrated the Ascension of the Lord. Gospel of Matthew Chapter 24 http://www.usccb.org/bible/matthew/24 Now we look at this very long stick which in the past I have had trouble with. Fortunately this stick had a good draw with okay smoke output. With a good spice kick along with sweetness on the lips it made a decently enjoyable stick. As with many lanceros you cannot put it down for any length of time. You need to baby them a bit. Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Lancero ...
"In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him." Â— Colossians 2:9, 10
Post Date: 2017-05-19 11:39:18 by redleghunter
May 18th Morning Reading "In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him." Colossians 2:9, 10 All the attributes of Christ, as God and man, are at our disposal. All the fulness of the Godhead, whatever that marvellous term may comprehend, is ours to make us complete. He cannot endow us with the attributes of Deity; but He has done all that can be done, for He has made even His divine power and Godhead subservient to our salvation. His omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, immutability and infallibility, are all combined for our defence. Arise, believer, and behold the Lord Jesus yoking the whole of His ...
The impossibility of a socialist Jesus
Post Date: 2017-05-10 07:13:14 by A K A Stone
Jesus was pro-socialist, American Christians are in thrall to Ayn Rand, and the early Apostles concocted a system of egalitarian socialism backed by fear of death. Such are the wild claims Gregory S. Paul made Friday on this site. Socialism is a relatively modern construct, a governmental system invented roughly 1,800 years after Christs death, not a biblical mandate. The question, then, is whether socialism is compatible with Christianity, not whether the Bible mandates socialism. How can Mr. Paul claim Jesus was pro-socialist? Jesus, after all, despite many demands from His followers, pointedly refused to establish an earthly government. ...
Stephen Fry faces blasphemy probe after God comments
Post Date: 2017-05-06 16:20:34 by Willie Green
Police in the Republic of Ireland have launched an investigation after a viewer claimed comments made by Stephen Fry on a TV show were blasphemous.Officers are understood to be examining whether the British comedian committed a criminal offence under the Defamation Act when he appeared on RTE in 2015.Fry had asked why he should "respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid god who creates a world.... full of injustice".He later said he was not "offensive towards any particular religion".According to a report in the Irish Independent newspaper, no publicised cases of blasphemy have been brought before the courts since the law was introduced in 2009 and a source said it was ...
Army secretary nominee Mark Green: Public healthcare stops people from being saved by Christianity
Post Date: 2017-05-04 19:56:41 by Willie Green
President Trump's pick for Army secretary once said government-assisted healthcare is an "injustice" because it hampers church-affiliated providers from converting people to Christianity. Mark Green, a state senator in Tennessee, told a church group in 2015 that sickness is one of the main avenues that bring people to religion, but that citizens in the United States now instead rely on the government to help them, limiting the Christian church's role. The comments shed more light on the conservative religious views that have brought Green, a physician and former Army flight surgeon, under fire from Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill and a growing segment of progressive ...
Remember the word unto Thy servant, upon which Thou hast caused me to hope
Post Date: 2017-04-28 10:36:20 by redleghunter
Morning and Evening Charles H. Spurgeon April 28, 2017 Morning Reading Remember the word unto Thy servant, upon which Thou hast caused me to hope. Psalm 119:49 Whatever your especial need may be, you may readily find some promise in the Bible suited to it. Are you faint and feeble because your way is rough and you are weary? Here is the promise-"He giveth power to the faint." When you read such a promise, take it back to the great Promiser, and ask Him to fulfil His own word. Are you seeking after Christ, and thirsting for closer communion with Him? This promise shines like a star upon you-"Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they ...
Oklahoman author, Texas dispute ownership of 'lunar Bibles'
Post Date: 2017-04-22 12:41:46 by Willie Green
TULSA, Okla. (AP) Ten microfilm Bibles once launched hundreds of thousands of miles into space sit landlocked today inside an Oklahoma courthouse while a legal battle rages in two states over who is the rightful owner of the celestial keepsakes. Eight of the 10 tiny holy books in dispute landed on the surface of the moon during NASA's 1971 Apollo 14 mission, carried in a pouch by astronaut Edgar Mitchell. Each isn't much larger than a postage stamp and contains all 1,245 pages of the King James Bible. Etched onto each strip of film at such a small size, its words must be viewed through a microscope, save for two: "HOLY BIBLE" at the very top of the slide. ...
My mid-year predictions
Post Date: 2017-04-20 17:59:35 by interpreter
Yesterday, I submitted the color ebook version of "The Revelation: a Historicist View" (available soon on Amazon) which contains a lot of updates. Here are my updated predictions for 2017: Mid-year Predictions (for 2017) As I always do, I must add my standard qualifier here but with three words added this time: These predictions are based on the Bible, and thus cannot fail to come true But I may be ahead of Gods (and/or Trumps) timetable by a year or two. 1. Trump (the 45th rider of the pale horse) will be able to get rid of Bashar Assad, But it will be difficult if Moscow intervenes, and God forbid, for it could lead to MAD.* 2. Trump together with some ...
Large Asteroid Coming Close On Earth April 19, 2017
Post Date: 2017-04-16 22:45:36 by goldilucky
A big asteroid will have a safely sweep past Earth on April 19, 2017. Itll come so close and its known so far in advance that scientists will be able to study the space rock using both radar and optical observations. The flyby should also be visible in amateur telescopes. Asteroid 2014 JO25 was discovered by astronomers at the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona in May 2014. It appears to be roughly 2,000 feet (650 meters) in size, with a surface about twice as reflective as that of Earths moon. The asteroid will safely pass at some 1,098,733 miles (1,768,239 km ) from our planet or about 4.6 times the distance from Earth to the moon. After analyzing ...

Jesuit Superior: Jesus Was Not ‘Black and White’ on Man/Woman Marriage
Post Date: 2017-04-06 08:57:30 by cranky
The new superior of the worldwide Jesuit religious order said recently that, as Jesus Christs words about marriage were never recorded, there is no basis for a black and white church doctrine centering on lifelong marriage between one man and one woman. In a recent interview with Vatican journalist Giuseppe Rusconi of the Italian Catholic blog Rossoporpora, Father Arturo Sosa Abascal states that Jesuss words about marriage must be contextualized and discerned. Human reality is much more nuanced and never black and white, said Abascal, who was elected superior of the Society of Jesus in October. LifeSiteNews has ...

Merry Christmas! Santa Claus was wrong. Today is the actual day Jesus was born. On this day in 4 BC, a bright Venus (the Star in the East) appeared over Bethlehem at high noon. As the Wise Men expected, it was right on time, exactly 4000 years after Adam (the first modern (civilized) man appeared in Mesopotamia, also called the Garden of Eden--as both the Bible and all archeologists and historians say. Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Dispensational View of the Genesis creation saga is correct, March 27th, 4 BC marks the beginning of DAY 5 of the reign of man on Earth. We are in Day 7, marked by the drying up of the Euphrates at its beginning as prophesied. After today--which ...
It’s Time We Stopped Calling Donald Trump a Christian
Post Date: 2017-02-04 11:49:44 by Willie Green
Enough is enough. Even in the early days of the Presidential campaign it was a ludicrous idea: that Donald Trump was now a Christian; that hed miraculously found Jesus right at the time he needed to pull in millions of Evangelical voters. Never mind that his life showed an open contempt for most of the things the Jesus of the Gospels lived and preached: humility, generosity, respect, empathy, kindness, peace. The high profile-evangelists in his corner assured their rightly alarmed flocks, that behind the scenes Donnie was changed man, a baby Christian whod now seen the light and was making his way down the narrow road of faith to lead us all to the ...
Is the Virgin Birth Essential to Christianity?
Post Date: 2017-01-10 23:21:00 by A K A Stone
Most of us are familiar with the narrative of Jesus birth: the angel who appears to Mary, the virgin conception, the babe in a manger in Bethlehem, the visit from the shepherds, and the gifts of the Magi. But do these events really matter to Christianity? Does It Matter How Jesus Came into the World? In a December 4, 2016, sermon, Pastor Andy Stanley, of North Point Community Church, introduced his sermon series Who Needs Christmas? with the following statement: One of the challenging things about the Christmas season, and one of the challenging things about the Christmas story, is in fact the Christmas story . . . as it relates to the birth of Jesus. Because theres so much ...
What We Celebrate at Christmas
Post Date: 2016-12-24 15:45:15 by redleghunter
What we celebrate at Christmas is not so much the birth of a baby, as important as that is, but whats so significant about the birth of that particular baby is that in this birth we have the incarnation of God Himself. An incarnation means a coming in the flesh. We know how John begins His gospel, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. So in that very complicated introductory statement, he distinguishes between the Word and God, and then in the next breath identifies the two, The Word was with God, and the Word was God. And then at the end of the prologue, he says, And the Word became flesh and dwelt among ...
Christian Leaders Persecuting “The Shack” Director For Depicting God As “Fat Black Woman”: “God’s Supposed To Be Smart”
Post Date: 2016-12-21 09:56:25 by Willie Green
Christian leaders are warning followers of the faith to steer clear of the upcoming Christian fiction flick The Shack, arguing if the film follows a faithful portrayal of author Willam P. Youngs book, it will smear the evangelical understanding of the Bible. If the film is a faithful portrayal of the events and the theology of the book, then every Christian should be gravely alarmed at the further advance of beliefs that smear the evangelical understanding of the truth of the Bible, Christian author James B. DeYoung, an acquaintance of the books author, told Christian News Network. Bottom line, God is most certainly not a fat, black ...

No Room for an Inn
Post Date: 2016-12-18 22:01:54 by A K A Stone
You probably recognize this scene: Bethlehem (around 2,000 years ago): Joseph and Mary arrive at the sleepy town in the middle of the night. Mary, already in labor, remains on the donkey while Joseph frantically searches for a room at the local inns. Desperate, he begs one reluctant innkeeper for any place at all to have this baby. The innkeeper finally relents and makes room for them in a tumbledown stable with the cows. Theres just one problem. This isnt what the Bible teaches. The true history has gotten choked out by myth. Stories, plays, and movies have dramatized the event for the sake of entertainment, but the real birth account is a bit different. Heres what Luke ...

Where Did Satan Come From?
Post Date: 2016-10-10 17:58:12 by Willie Green
The devil goes by many names Satan, the Prince of Darkness, Beelzebub and Lucifer to name a few but besides this list of aliases, what do people really know about the brute? That is, how did the story of Satan originate? Many ancient religions have scriptures detailing the struggle between good and evil. For instance, in the Zoroastrian religion, one of the world's earliest, the supreme deity, Ormazd, created two entities: the chaotic and destructive spirit Ahriman and his beneficent twin brother, Spenta Mainyu, said Abner Weiss, a psychologist and the rabbi at the Westwood Village Synagogue in Los Angeles. "The ancient world struggled with the coexistence of good ...
Christian fundamentalist schools ‘performed exorcisms on children and beat pupils in religious rituals’
Post Date: 2016-09-20 11:58:24 by Willie Green
Exclusive investigation reveals serious concerns about how children taught at Accelerated Christian Education in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s were treated, as ex-pupils claim exorcisms were performed on children, pupils were beaten in religious ceremonies and girls were groomed for marriage to older men Teachers at Christian fundamentalist schools in Britain allegedly performed exorcisms on pupils, beat children in religious rituals and groomed girls for marriage, according to former students who say they have decided to speak out now after years of suffering in silence. The former pupils told The Independent such treatment of children was a terrifying ...
