Exec Bullies Chick-Fil-A Worker, Then Promptly Gets Fired For It
Adam Smith, former CFO and treasurer of medical supplies manufacturer Vante, caused quite a stir today when he put up a video of himself bullying a Chick-fil-A drive-thru employee in Tucson on YouTube.
Smith berates the worker about her company in the video, which was initially titled ‚ÄĚReduce $‚Äôs to Chick-Fil-A‚Äôs Hate Groups.‚ÄĚ It has since been taken down (though others have uploaded it too).
"I don't know how you live with yourself and work here," he tells the employee at the window. "I don't understand it. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values. You deserve better."...

1. No I don't bro.
2. But then I was thinking of the deceptive lies propagated centuries ago, when statues were rigged up with pipes and coloured fluid, to give the impression of miraculous occurrences etc.
3. Being servants of Satan, a multitude of false religions can actually tell lies knowing them to be lies yet justifiable before God.
4. I don't have any sympathy for such, but I do have much sadness for those who are deceived by them. There is one cult for example, who engage in what they call "flirty fishing" in order to attract adherents.
5. I think it is true (eh, theologicals?) that Jesus the Lord himself spoke very harshly to religious deceivers, seeing in them the acts of the devil, who rebelled against the Most High God.

Those who are genuinely in ignorance, I can feel sad for, and wish their conversion through repentance and faith.
But a religion which deliberately tells lies, knowing them to be lies, in order to gain proselytes or converts, I feel no sadness for, but would willingly pray that God frustrates their wiles (of the devil), and utterly destroys those who would turn sinners away from the Saviour in order to gain adherents and thus more power over men.

These conclusions that one sin is the cause of all other sin and downfall in society is such a sad and misguided concept that we must feel really sorry for those who perceive things this way.
Thus the Roman Catholic religion of human effort unto salvation will believe in this way. And we must be sad that theirs is an unBiblical and all to human/sinner method of perception.
Religion without God is the philosophy of the Vatican and its followers which is exactly why the Reformers identified their local earthly god as the papal antichrist.
Sola Scriptura is proven to be the divine method of perception by the elect.
The Business Insider, an entirely secular journal, found it alarming enough to publish "Time To Admit It: The Church Has Always Been Right On Birth Control." From the article:
The Church teaches that love, marriage, sex, and procreation are all things that belong together. That‚Äôs it. But it‚Äôs pretty important. And though the Church has been teaching this for 2,000 years, it‚Äôs probably never been as salient as today.
Today‚Äôs injunctions against birth control were re-affirmed in a 1968 document by Pope Paul VI called Humanae Vitae. He warned of four results if the widespread use of contraceptives was accepted:
General lowering of moral standards A rise in infidelity, and illegitimacy The reduction of women to objects used to satisfy men. Government coercion in reproductive matters.
Does that sound familiar?
Because it sure sounds like what‚Äôs been happening for the past 40 years.
At the moment, Chick-fil-A and Mr. Smith are in front of the bullseye of this cultural crossfire:
no theory wrote: How the Catholic Church Became Cool Overnight "Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair." CHESTERTON
The Roman Catholic church became 'cold' (dead) overnight by its doctrine of works based religion which in turn rejects the sovereignty of God. This is one of the reasons why the Roman Catholic church had to rewrite the Bible in its own image, - its own graven image.
The soppy lovey-dovey ideology of those who would dismiss sound doctrine and replace it with human sin dominated emotion and entertainment, is typical of the modern Liberal conviction and hypothesis of unBiblical religion. Obviously Chesterton would have fitted right in today in the Anglican conglomeration of nicey touchy feely religious theatrics now available in the CofE. Perhaps, if he'd lived today, this might have prevented him from the complete journey over to idolatry, heresy and his joining of the papal antichrists followers.

"I advise you to avoid Chesterton". JOHN UK
But in any case, I do not believe in "religious theory" but biblical facts. When you wholly trust God in what he has said in his word about his Son, you become justified. This is called "justification by faith in Christ".
I realise you would rather (proudly) work for your entry into heaven, but God says you can never get in that way, and he will not permit it.
But if you will spend more time reading of what Christ has done on behalf of sinners, and submit yourself to God's way of salvation, there is a possibility that God will have mercy on you, and quicken your thinking, to understand spiritually rather than theoretically. There is no hope for you apart from this. You are in the hands of God, and no amount of Catholicism will change things.

The 16th century Reformation was an act of God to bring His true church back to the Word of God and obedience thereto.
The Roman Catholic church is Like the Liberal church an abomination of idolatry and blasphemy. Both prove to the real Christian that the Holy Spirit is not in them and that they cannot follow Christ. The Roman church is led by the papal antichrist and those who thus follow ARE DEFINITELY NOT CHRISTIAN.
To follow the Roman church and the Liberals is to follow the same satanic path to hell. The path which they take is either Roman idolatry of relics or Liberal idolatry of man - Both "changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man" (Rom 1:23). Neither take the path of Scripture which the true Reformers fought for - Sola Scriptura.
Isaiah 44:18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand"
teenage son wants to join RCC wrote: Q My teenage son wants to join the Roman Catholic Church. How should I respond? What should my pastor say to this?
teenage son wants to join the RCC First as humbly honestly and fearfully (in the fear of God as you can get) make your own calling and election sure.
The issue is first and foremost are you genuinely born again of the Holy Spirit yourself and until you get the matter of the new birth settled with solid Biblical theology and real life experience (being genuinely born again yourself) neither you nor your pastor will be able to know what you are talking about.
Second you need to get into the word of God (Bibllical Doctrine_the Truth God Himself wants you to know, believe and live by) and the word of God into your life like you never have before in your life because until you do neither you nor your pastor will have sufficient Truth to gently refute the lies the RCC has had nearly 2000 years to cultivate and refine.
And in the fear of God, pray, intercede, ask others to pray with you, for you and about your son and your pastor too, and when you have prayed pray some more and keep seeking God for the knowledge of His will and the power of the Spirit to live it out, until God manifests victory!

A Because the Protestant Reformation was a reaction to various teachings and practices of the Catholic Church, our denominational history has been characterized by an adverse appraisal of that church. Some have even asserted that Catholics are not Christians.
In reality, we have much more theological affinity with the Catholic Church than we do with liberal Protestantism, which denies some of the theological fundamentals mentioned in the Apostles‚Äô Creed. As a result of dialogue with the Catholic Church, our denomination revised Answer 80 of the Heidelberg Catechism, and both churches agreed to recognize and accept each other‚Äôs administration of baptism.
Romans 1 26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.---NASB

First thing is this guy is barking up the wrong tree harassing a front-line employee. He is annoying and trying to make himself look like he's a great guy. That he ended up getting fired is probably just desserts. Number 2, I love taking pictures and documenting all the things that I do on FB, youtube and other sites when it's my choice to do so, but it is terrible when you could be on camera and posted on one of these sites without permission by any Tom, Dick, or Harry with a cellphone. It's plain scary.
Finally, although the guy is arrogant, annoying and a real punk, he didn't exactly berate the girl all that badly. I have seen and been on the receiving end of worse. Generally speaking, Americans are getting more rude all the time. What was this guy's agenda in doing this? He wanted a few seconds of fame and then lost his job for it. He'll probably spin it in his own mind that he is some kind of a martyr against hate when in reality he's just a jerk that could have kept his job had he just kept his mouth shut and stayed home.

I agree my friend. I often remember & take comfort in the wisdom given to another Brother in Christ that shares my zealouness for the Lord
1 Peter 3:13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
1 Peter 3:14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
1 Peter 3:16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
1 Peter 3:17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
