Ah, SA, is really demonstrating a sense of humor today. This is another article about the [im]moralism of the Romish Church.
The Christian Telegraph wrote: The dismantling of the family has advanced especially rapidly in Latin America in recent years, with Argentina, Uruguay, and now Chile all relativizing the institution of marriage between one man and one woman.
Bishop Bernardo Bartres of Punta Arenas described the harm that will befall Chilean families as a result of this new law: â€śIt is a shame that the state will not support the family which is where the entire social fabric is started. It might appear as if this law tries to resolve a solution to a real problem, but in reality not only does it not solve any problems but it makes things worse by putting families in a very unstable foundation. In marriage, which is the foundation of the family, there is a complementarity between man and woman at a physical, psychological and emotional level. When they are together they form a family unit, one which is indissoluble.â€ť
excerpt from the article, this guy doesn't seem to know the Romish culture itself is sick, e.g., Clerical Celibacy
Vatican investigates? This is usually a farce, and the Unholy See is desperate to make it appear they are serious about the criminal class, otherwise known as the Magisterium that runs the crime organization a.k.a. the Roman Catholic Church. If they were really serious about cleaning up house they would make the old goose-stepper Pope Benny 16 available for prosecution by secular court, q.v., A Call for Earthly Justice--Holding the Catholic Church accountable for its crimes.
As Christians we have more comfort than non-Christians even when the worse things happen to us. As a secular society we have followed what is called the Judeo-Christian ethic, and this article helps explain that, What does Judeo-Christian Mean?.
By the way, the Apostle Paul, military contacts didn't make an admirer of the military life either, probably,
2 Timothy 2:3 Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.---NASB

Now, Frank, that is what I thought and was planning to say. If a person uses the Android app, to post a message he should use something like "colornote" Kingsoft, etc. to first write out the whole reply then paste that reply into the box, because the only way to correct something left by the Android app is just leave a reply immediately with what should have been said right after. So, I did notice much what you two gentlemen said later, and for once my laziness allowed for a much more fuller look at the article, for once my tardiness paid off. But there's still http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=118121637304 (The Inadequacy of Moralism) when either Liberal or Conservatives try to shove a particular morality system down other peoples' throats.
Penny, this is a good "Cliff Notes," of what is going to happen. You might call it a summary to Dr. Rugh's series on Daniel and Revelation. It certainly hits most of the main points, http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=919121350379 ( Stage-Setting for Israel's Peace & Security). I really don't know what happen in the time period of this particular sermon, but there was little or editing of the sermon (Yes, Dr. Rugh is human) and summaries weren't put to them either. I just listen to the sermon --and I believe-- Dr. Rugh at one point said after the Seven Year period, when he meant before it. I guarantee you might ear wasn't tickled at that spot. Perhaps I got the context wrong, where I misheard rather than he misspoke. Other than that, quite a good sermon on the coming together of apostate religious believers.
Great overview of the Tribulation A very unofficial summary! Â¶ The Bible interprets the world's events not vice versa. Many of the nations in Ezekiel 38 that will be attacking Israel in the last days are in the news today and are Islamic nations. It will be a disaster for these nations to attack Israel. God intervenes to save Israel. Â¶ There are two stages of happenings occurring at the end of the church age, The Jews will be brought back to the land but are not at peace. Dr. Rugh found the Pope's visit to Lebanon a reminder that religious leaders will play a significant role in the 1st 3.5 years of the Tribulation. Â¶ See and listen to Dr. Rugh's series on Daniel. This particular sermon would make a very good summary of the Daniel series. Dr. Rugh links the pertinent verses of Daniel and Revelation to the religious leaders and that is why the Pope was talked about earlier in the sermon. Â¶ False religious systems are examined down through ages, there will be religious people left on earth after the Rapture of the Church, Muslims, apostate Protestants, Catholics, etc., will unite, they are represented by the Woman on the Scarlet Beast. There will be an artificial peace established with the help of these apostates of the false church. Gods use the sinfulness of man to carry out his plans.
I'm glad to hear that Robert Spencer is pointing out enslavement of women in Islam. They also show that they are opposite of what the Bible says, since women areto leave their heads uncovered in most cases. http://answering-islam.org/Index/H/hijab.html
1 Corinthians 11 14Â Doesnâ€™t even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 15Â But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her, for her hair is given to her for a covering.
I think you answered your own question Mike. Those that don't want it don't get it and then they catch measles and pass it on. Causing more expenses to people, I.e., the taxpayer, So, people who do not get vaccinated perhaps should be quarantined? They don't need to work at jobs or go to schools anyway.
I see from the flu report that AP had, golden oldies are really being hit hard this year. Unfortunately, the vaccine didn't cover the major flu strain, so it was less effective. 20 or 30 percent rather than 50 to 60 percent. I would have put up that report or at least sections of it but AP as like ABC, are very specific that they do not want anybody to quote their stuff even in a small way so you aren't going to get it. So, you can get an abundance of the details, from the CDC sort of interesting if you like having a mountain of facts http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/
Of course there will be a one world government, Penny!
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: .... Old and New Testament prophecies indicate the ancient city of Babylon will be rebuilt, becoming the center of Satan's empire. During the tribulation God will allow Satan to set up his kingdom with one world government and one world religion centered there. At this time the world will finally be united under one world leader who is Satanâ€™s man. When it reaches its height of power and dominance midway through the seven year tribulation, judgment and destruction will come as God takes Satan's empire down. The wealth, power, and authority involved in the satanic system will come to nothing as God takes account of the sin of Satan and his followers.
In great contrast to Babylon's very short lived glory time, Jerusalem's will be eternal. God's city will become the center of His rule as Jesus Christ reigns from His throne....
Oh, and to keep you up on Israel, though it is several years old, Palestinians Trying to 'Wipe Out Jewish History'. I would also point out a lot worse than Common Core, Google is gone anti-Israel If you want anything positive on Israel you'd better use a different search engine!
s c, and others there's only one sabbath and that is on Saturday, but for that matter,
Colossians 2 16 Therefore let no one act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day-- 17 things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.---NASB
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: There are problems with people who do not understand the Scriptures well enough to apply the Scriptures accurately. Too many people don't understand that we are not under the Mosaic Law. As the the Apostle James pointed out you keep ALL of the Mosaic law or with one infraction of it, you have broken all of it. The Mosaic law was made only with one physical people, Israel. The Mosaic law only applies to Gentiles who identify themselves with the nation of Israel -- converts to Judaism. Christians are deserting Christ when they say they have to live under the Mosaic Law, this idea is opposed to what the Apostle Paul preached. No one was ever saved by keeping the Mosaic Law....
John MacArthur said or, wrote: Paul classifies as "skubalon" (Greek), in Philippians 3. That word is about as vivid a word as he could possibly use. It could be translated "rubbish"â€”the most accurate translation is "dung."
When you talk about a work-righteousness system, of any kind, it is so far from saving that it is rubbish, it's garbage. That's why Paul said, "All my life" he said, "I tried to achieve this stuff, and I had all this stuff in my gain column," remember that in Philippians 3? "And then I saw Christ, and a righteousness which came not by the law, but a righteousness was given to me by faithâ€”the righteousness of God and immediately all what was gained was "skubalon."
What you have got is a whole system built on "skubalon" and you can't throw your arms around that system. You can't embrace it,...
Measles itself is unpleasant, but the complications are dangerous. Six to 20 percent of the people who get the disease will get an ear infection, diarrhea, or even pneumonia. One out of 1000 people with measles will develop inflammation of the brain, and about one out of 1000 will die.... In the decade before the measles vaccination program began, an estimated 3â€“4 million persons in the United States were infected each year, of whom 400â€“500 died, 48,000 were hospitalized, and another 1,000 developed chronic disability from measles encephalitis. Widespread use of measles vaccine has led to a greater than 99% reduction in measles cases in the United States compared with the pre-vaccine era.
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: The church at Rome was primarily Gentile. Jews who were professing to be believers were creating confusion by their insistence and teaching that faith in Christ was not enough to be saved and sanctified. They taught that to complete salvation and live pleasing to God believers need to live under the authority of the Mosaic Law. Paul wrote telling the purpose and place of the Law in believer's lives. The reign of grace replaces the reign of sin and the reign of the Law. Believers have died to sin and likewise to the Law. Death frees from obligation to previous relationships including both sin and the Law. Paul uses the death of one spouse in a marriage relationship to illustrate this point. Some parts of the Mosaic Law have been given as commands by Christ. Believers obey those commands not out of obligation to the Law but to be obedient to Christ and His authority. Today believers are obligated to Christ's teaching, live under His authority, and are able to obey because of the indwelling Spirit of God.
Apparently at least temporarily, the print version of the article, Palestinians Attempt to Co-Opt Jewish History is not available. So, this is the address for the non print version which usually has obnoxious advertisements with it. Many of these online publications are not doing themselves any favors in having PG advertisements interspersed with the article
If you have an electronic Bible, the ISBE Dictionary has an excellent section on the Maccabees.
