Make sure it's old order, new order has electricity and phones, that is if your theory holds water for fish to swim in.
1 Cor. 7:31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.
i used to wear the brown scapular, go to confession weekly,prayed the rosary weekly, prayed to various catholic saints, wished i could be as blessed as padre pio to have the wounds of Jesus, and wanted to become a carmelite nun, i was still sexually assaulted on a daily basis and called a whore by my mother, who almost became a nun but left before her final vows, mother told me i could not become a carmelite because i was a "fallen and stained woman" this she told to a 12 year old, yes she lead me in rosary and meditations on the stations of the cross, i prayed and prayed on my rosary in hopes of my rosary turning gold as proof God loved my prayers ... so i'm really an ex catholic, really lived the life and left it praise be to God~! i hope God saves you two, i will pray that you do~!
@sc appreciated your thought here reminding me of Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
The lovely symmetry of truth, 'without faith it is impossible to please God', yet as His image bearers we are such because unlike the rest of creation, man is a reasonable creature. Gen.1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
@ pennned I appreciated your "Makes oil a 'finite' resource" it reminded me of a sermon I heard 'The Christian and the Green Movement rather prophetic being preached in 2010 http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=426101537282
Good for faithful contending, even if only in one's own mind. My entrepreneur son; the youngest, jumped at the reasonableness, as well as economic potential for an economically challenged family by building off it. Wait now says Mom to youth:
Michael, I have not read the article penned by Jon Speed, but I am familiar with the website it's from. I wanted to warn concerning one of the contributors there - Marcus Pittman. He's the one who produced the wildly popular 'babies are murdered here'. Pittman adheres to a dominionist view, his brand of 'Christianity' is not biblical at all. I strongly encourage you to read this post as it reveals much concerning Pittman - https://abbasgirlme.wordpress.com/2014/01/29/regarding-babies-are-murdered-here/

Religion = Sunday morning: dress up in your "Sunday best" clothing, pack Bible in arm, and walk or drive to your local "House of Worship" sit there with everyone else facing one direction, listen to a 'message' or a 'sermon,' then 'fellowship' by trading social news or comments on weather, sports, politics, then drive home. And then, repeat next Sunday morning. If that is Christianity, then it makes sense to stay as far away as possible.
gotta love the comments on the article about "fossil fuels" -- they actually believe the oil in their cars comes from garbage dumps of piled up dead dinosaur bodies after milleniums and not that God just put oil deep in the earth. Makes oil a "finite" resource to run the earths economies and makes excuse for where all their dinosaur bones went (proof for a ludicrous theory).
I hope this Christian scientist enjoys his find. Its always fun to shake the evolutionists out of their God sterilized world, just look at how a cucumber plant grows up a vine, it finds its way and grabs the fence. Nothing about nature is accidental, fallen yes, but coincidental no!
The article is biased and states that "if one believes in science,the fossils are 60 million years old"...(paraphrase) The fossils are fish fossils and not transitional,part fish-part something else creatures. And while,as Mourner notes,"... faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.", even those things which we see,fossils included,attest to an awesome Creator!
this cartoon contest was a brain child of geller, Zionist extraordinaire. have we not learned from the west/allies approach in the ME, when one wants to advance an agenda, to spark disagreement between groups and get them fighting?
I do not want the sunnis/Shiites/Zionists provoking their wores on our streets.
once called out beleivers understand the nature if ISIS and how it came to be, they can understand domestically what the goal is.
I am not against people expressing their concerns about islm necessarily, if they have an informed opinion.
it is the method of communism to provoke opposing sides. we are living in a wave of commusm right now. why? when your goal is consolidation of power (oligarchs), instead of openly fighting the people, you just fund groups of opposing sides to fight each other... kind of like a chicken fight, or the old duels of the colleseum... throw them in to fight to the death kind of thing.
Christians would do well to source the jihadists groups that are genociding Christians, and then see that the islamists that they have a distaste for have a common "wolf" at their door. besides... we all have the "wolf" of the sin nature within to deal with.
the greatest cloud over us is the false narratives that we believe and perpetuate...
A local pastor (friend) sent me the following link to an article that exposes the abuse of the Pro-Life Movement to seduce people away from the Gospel and ulitmate lead them into Catholicism, meaning a Roman Catholic world view/mindset NOT a Biblical one
(This was hard to put into words)
40 Days For Life Stinks (in my words here because it opposes the preaching of the Gospel)
BTW the pro-Cathoic Sidewalk Advocates for Life Training I am NOT attending today is being taught by the man heading up the local 40 Days for Life and promotes a do not preach, avoid, a preaching of the Gospel ideology
and if you haven't read it my response to the Baptist who invited me was:
Brings to mind Hebrew 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
It's not fossil fish neither museums that contain the 'things which are seen' that will convince a man these 'things which are seen were not made of the things which do appear' but veracity of the word of God. Heb.11:Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
A logical deduction easily reveals the necessity of an absolute, intelligent, benevolent, infinite-personal being (obviously God) for all things to exist. Praise God these small discoveries continue to manifest. Soli Deo Gloria!

Amen bro. A simple reminder may help someone who is in the throws of backsliding. It starts off little, but grows and grows until before you know it, the Lord has second best, the sacrifice is tainted, the world seems more attractive again, zeal departs, until what happens is that genuine believers can have a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. They go through the motions of worship, preaching, giving etc. but God is no longer there, his Spirit is grieved, his Spirit is quenched, the fire is put out, and all that is left is an empty shell, otherwise known as an almost apostate.
Keep the reminders coming, therefore. We need to exhort one another daily unto "love and good works", remembering that we are to love the Lord our God with ALL our heart, soul, strength and mind. And this can only come when we spend much time meditating on the Person of Christ, who he is, and what he has done for us, and what he is going to do for us. There is no exhausting this subject of Christ.
Yes, my own thinking on this is the whole issue of "freedom of speech". For many centuries, the Christian population has been always caricatured, especially in the media such as newspapers etc. And you won't find me grumbling about being called a "holy Joe" at work, or shouted at in the streets for preaching the gospel.
But you see, the Islamic people not only grumble, they imagine they have a divine right to exercise retribution on what they perceive as "infidels and heretics", namely you and me. Just by being a Christian, and refusing to recant and turn to Allah to become Moslem, is enough for them to kill you, and think they do God service.
Remember the RCC and its fierce persecution of Christians? Killing those they imagined to be heretics? Thinking they did God service?
Some of the Reformed were also like that, and some would still like to be, enforcing religion on the hoi polloi, thus taking away freedom of speech; essentially fascist and totalitarian in principle.
God knows about this false religion, and prepares his fire for such, those who would dare to mock God and God's people, and do them hurt.
So I can leave it up to God. I have "seen their end".
Author of the article wrote: ‚ÄúIf Bush vocally and loudly aligns himself with the pope, that‚Äôs a general election strategy, that‚Äôs not a primary strategy.‚ÄĚ But for Bush, a devout convert, it may not be a strategy at all. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs the thing about Jeb Bush,‚ÄĚ said Moore. ‚ÄúThis wasn‚Äôt a political calculation for him. I think there‚Äôs a heartfelt belief that this pope is really spreading Catholic faith around the world.‚ÄĚ
Jeb Bush seems to be the least desirable of a bad lot of Catholic politicians. At least he isn't a hypocrite when he comes to his Catholicism. But of course, it would have been better if none of these fellows were Catholic at all, instead of varying degrees of hypocrites. Many will return to being Catholics first and Republican second, when they think the opportunity is good for that. The Perils of Popery
