it has long been known that these groups are part of the expansionism, the freedom fighters, and all. this is a fairly obvious step in the process. love the links to Hillary talking about how AQ was an American creation.... you'd think after years of this evang'ls would "get" it. the storyline that they are just liberals that don't understand islam is just silly, anyone remember Bengh@zi, what was really going on there?

And you think that condemnatory verdict indicates a saving faith?
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
1 John 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.
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
Just a quick thought I wish to share. I was reminded this morning that through much tribulation we shall enter the kingdom of God. I know we would prefer flowery beds of ease. Always beholding our Savior's face and experiencing His smile. We love the blessed fellowship with the One who is altogether lovely. Yet how much more precious does He become when we realize that though we go through the water of trials they will not overflow and the fire of trouble it will not consume us for He is with us to sustain us. We need the furnace of affliction to burn away the dross in our lives. We need the trying of our faith to help take away our affections for the things that turn us from our God. We pray that God would use whatever means to make us like unto the image of His dear Son, that He may see, even in us, somewhat of the travail of His soul May He sanctify our afflictions that we may be found to the praise and honor of Him who has called us out of darkness into His glorious light.
Also, may I join the list of people who will let you know that you will continue to be in my prayers and more specifically about this matter. Agree, get legal help, there are groups that specialize in this type of situation.
By your first post I was thinking you were dealing with a city ordinance requiring businesses to register with the city, post proof of insurance, bonds, etc. to prevent shady business practices. But now it seem you have a property tax issue.
Did you own or lease the property while you were there?
Like others, I've dealt with similar issues as a business owner as well as a for lease real estate owner. Tell me what you are comfortable with and I may be able to at least point you in the right direction so you can get some sleep.
In any event, don't let this thing take a toll on your health. Nothing is worth that and, by the grace of God, you WILL get through it.

If the Bible doesn't mention that church attendance/membership is required for entering Heaven upon ones demise and if Jesus will not look at the church that one attended in determining if one will enter Heaven and will only look at if one had embraced Him as ones Savior and trusted in Him alone for salvation in determining if one will enter Heaven then why are you implying that one who has embraced Jesus as ones Savior and trusts in Him alone for salvation has to leave the Catholic Church or they are not really saved? I have spiritual tastes. I listen to Christian music on the radio and Christian shows on the radio. I am not against anybody on here who is a Born Again Evangelical Protestant. What I am against is that most of you Evangelical Protestants on here state erroneously that unless one who is Born Again leaves the Catholic Church that they are not really saved.
The Uncertainty Principle is about wave functions, which has little to do with Darwinism (conceived before Heisenberg & his peers were born). On the other hand, it could serve as a good example of the limits of empiricism, an epistemology accepted by Darwinists & most Creationists.
By definition, nothing irrational can be logically valid.
Duh, Galations is written to address two things: Obedience to the Rabbinical/Pharisaic/Man-made laws rather than GOD's (usually called "under the law" or "works of the law"). You can see this in Gal 3:10. The "works of the law" oppose the "book of the law". Secondly, Galations talks against justification by the law. Gal 5:4
We do owe a lot to our Judeo-Christian heritage, (What does Judeo-Christian Mean?) However, the article itself didn't identify the religious people as Protestants, many could be Catholics, a church infamous for not pushing the work ethic The only state that appears to be associated with a particular religion was Utah, infamous for the Mormon cult, q.v., Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses. I suppose one should look further and see how productive they are in secular occupations?
Proverbs 6 6 Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise, 7 Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler, 8 Prepares her food in the summer, And gathers her provision in the harvest. 9 How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep? 10 "A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest"-- 11 And your poverty will come in like a vagabond, And your need like an armed man.---NASB

Give them the Word of God as fresh and warm and clear as the Holy Spirit gave it to the authors of the Bible. . . . For any preacher or theologian who loves God's Word to allow that Word to go on being misunderstood because of the veneration of an archaic, not-understood version of four centuries ago is inexcusable, and almost unconscionable

Even those of faith can be weak creatures
John 12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

Thanks a lot for the continued prayers and advice. I moved from the town the taxes have built up in in 2003, and moved my business to another town. Not knowing I was suppose to send a one line note saying "business closed", I sent a change of address with my business name. I just found out yesterday that the taxes have been acruing with interest since then. CCan't speak to the assessor until Tues but I don't understand how they can demand the back taxes if I can prove my business has been gone all those years. no sleep until Tues, then the news, I guess. Thanks again for continued prayer, and sorry, RK, I don't like disrupting threads but I have nobody I can turn to here for this sort of thing.
