Consider this I called back every number they have been contacting me with and all go back to Charter. I have received as many as two calls a day. I finally called and said enough is enough. Put me on the do not call list. They said fine and that it would take up to twenty days for it to take effect. Why 20 days? I did this yesterday. Today alone they have called "Eight" times. This is harassment. Collection companies aren't allowed to do this.
It is very easy to circumvent Covenent Eyes and beat it. Here is a workaround that will let anyone watch any video or visit any website unmonitored:
1. Go to Amazon App store and choose any Test-Drive App that has a built in browser. 2. Click on "Test-Drive," navigate to Google and enjoy any kind of video or website unmonitored - CE can't pick up any activity going through this Amazon service!
Here is one example of such an app: http://www.amazon.com/Global- News/dp/B005G5GQQQ
There is a lot of confusion on this and unfortunately this is just one of many teachings that have so many religions and not enough church as Christ intended it be. First we must ask are all names at one time written in The Book Of Life ? Secondly I know I will never be a scriptually sound as Paul and the other disciples, but let's look at some verses Let's start with Rev. 3:5. Doesn't say everybody there is a qualification. If met your name will not be blotted out. (kjv ). To say someone cannot change their mind needs to remember at one time we all believed in Santa Claus. Were we wrong to believe in Santa ? There are verses ( all kjv ) that expand on this. Look at 1 Cor, 15: 1-2. The word IF is used. John 8:31. Again Jesus talks and uses the word IF. Look at John 15:6 again Jesus uses IF. Look at 2 Peter1:10 / Hebrews 3:6. There are others. --- Also we all heard the teaching that no man or things created cannot take you from His hand. It doesn't say that you can let go of your own accord. I would like to hear sermons on this as anyone who disagrees with the Ifs used above then they better know more than Jesus, Peter, Paul, John and others and you can pick any pastor you know and if they say they know more than them RUN FAR AWAY!!!
Really, it makes me sad when at a time that we should be awake to the spirit of this world that brothers and sisters of our Fathers Kingdom, are seeking to split hairs about what is God and what is not of God. Jesus said it like this when His disciples came to Him complaining about miracles : John said to Him, Teacher, we saw a man who does not follow along with us driving out demons in Your name, and we forbade him to do it, because he is not one of our band [of Your disciples]. But Jesus said, Do not restrain or hinder or forbid him; for no one who does a mighty work in My name will soon afterward be able to speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is for us. (Mark 9:38-40 AMP)
And then Jesus said to his disciple who wanted to know about John's future, " what's this to you? Follow me!"
As you are very aware of the fact that satan is the accuser of the brethern .... Consider the spirit you are walking with. You may have your personal opinions, but keep them before God. For with the same measure that you are using against this brother it Will be Multiplied back to you!
For the rest brethern. Think on these things, whatsoever is of a good report..... Build each other up in LOVE. This is not your job. Heed the Words of Love Himself.
There are a massive amount scriptures in the bible that clearly show you can walk away from God and not be allowed to enter heaven..not just in Revelations. No where in scripture can you find that once you have been saved by grace, you can continue in sin and rebellion and enter heaven because his grace covers it all. If you did nothing but read the words of Jesus, you would soon see the truth. He warned of hell more than anyone and his parables does show sin as a big issue for salvation!!
I find it interesting at how Satan's goal from the beginning was to blind us to losing our salvation. If he can continue to blind us with this false doctrine of once saved always saved...most certainly it is understanable why the gate that leads to everlasting life is narrow and few will find it.
In the Garden of Eden...he said, "Thou shalt not surely die", but that sin caused Adam and Eve to lose their salvation!
I think it's strange that I hear from the American Bible Society that I need to support sending Bibles to China because the Chinese government takes Bibles away from people, but then Bibles are being published there. I have heard that China has the fastest growing church. Chase's comment states to "buy American." Where? What? I do not want to support Christian persecution.
I was just got called for my second interview by a Phillp at strathmorewhoswho and after a few questions he said I have accomplished being recognized for my acheivements and was also offerd either a $600 life time membership or $300 for a 5 year plan and when I refussed and wanted more information I was offerd another discount,I believe the final number was a 1 year plan with a papper plaque to put in a frame. I kept asking for more information and Phillip said he couldn't wait because it wouldn't be fare to the other customers if I delayed the publishing of the book. Finally I said no I dont want to do anything with out researching it first and ended the conversation, guess I am like the rest and just an ordinary person again but had my few moments of fame there! LOL do they think any of us have acheived what we have so far by jumping head first into something without researching it first and if we have then we have learned by our mistakes.
I hate to burst peoples bubles here, but the Bible DOES mention sins and abominations that WILL NOT be acceptable to God and WILL NOT allow the partaker of those sins to enter. People need to stop looking for excuses to live lazy and live wrong. They need to start looking for reasons to live RIGHT. The Bible says to DENY YOURSELF, take up the Cross and follow HIM - not our own lusts, not our own greed and not our own selfish ambitions. A lazy mind gives way to bad habits. The "once saved always saved" makes Christ and all of the penalties of sin, written in the book, as though it was written for nothing. If I want to believe that I'm "once saved always saved", I'll sit on the couch, skip work, drink beer all day, act no different than a Heathen and not even care because "once saved always saved", right? WRONG. Read your Bibles.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Period. No exceptions. If "once saved always saved" is true, then anyone, even Satan can confess that Jesus is Lord and will end up in Heaven. Adulteresses, adulterers, whoremongers, drunkards will end up in Heaven. Why? Because they too profess Jesus as Lord and are "saved" without any means of effort. But hey, they're "once saved always saved", right? Poppy cock nonsense.
All new Lockman Bibles are made in China now. And you can add Crossway to the list as the latest to downgrade.
I just received my ESV Large Print Thinline Reference Bible in Top Grain Leather made by Crossway (ISBN: 1433532786). Nowhere on any of the advertisements or packaging does it say where it is made and I assumed since Crossway is making most of their Bibles in the USA that this one was too. Not so!
I can't tell you how disappointed I was to see the "Printed in China" on the Copyright page. Crossway is making the move to China like everyone else. Not all of them are produced there yet, but we'll see how that goes.
I called their customer service and the lady I spoke to, let’s just say, had received other calls about this same thing and was not too happy to receive my inquiry. She gave me the same reason that every other Bible manufacturer that has made the move to China. They are trying to make Bibles more economical for people.
Well I see so many people out of jobs walking around with $500 cell phones complete with data plan. It is not really a matter of if we have the money; it is a matter of priorities. And Bible makers cheapening God's Word is not the solution to an increase in value. My belief is that if Bibles cost us more, we would value them more.
How charming to be recognized, then a simple phone call from a Peter Blevins and a couple of questions later,I am now being offered an Honorary membership. However when I queried the cost of £499, it all got a bit nasty... Surely the point of being 'recognized'is that you are being invited, not buying into an organization? This is a scam, keep well away!if I see anyone using this Global Who's Who on a business card/CV etc, I will know that they are lousy business people, and are truly vain.
This is amazing, I was just nominateed as well. I got them down to one year for $99. Alas, I can't do it. the notoriety alone ahould want me to sign for life, but there are plenty of industry prfessionals that already know me. Do I really need more? Funny article though, and they have quite a scam going.
Definitely a scam! Crazy that they just phone up and say stupid shit like that to try and make you believe that being on their stupid website will generate a lot of profit for your business and profile. I almost feel sorry for the guy on the other end of the line who had to listen to me ramble about my qualifications, the organization I work for and my future life goals! hahaha
On one hand, I don't have a problem with Bibles printed by Buddhists, Muslims or Atheists or whatever. But, I can't be sure that Buddhists or Muslims (Uihgers) are not being held at gun point by atheist communists.
I can't risk my religion depending on that. Neither can you.
I have slightly different standards for regular life and sacred spaces. I can't ask everyone to never buy anything from China, but I can ask people to never risk people being mistreated in the name of Jesus or my religion. (and don't dare ask people to be mistreated in the name of the H%%% Spirit..ever)
One person mentioned that Zondervan is working with a group called Amity that they say is an honorable group. I hope that is so, but I still feel it is wrong.
The objective of this type of software for me, at least is to make it too difficult to bother with during the 30 to 90 minutes during which a temptation lasts. I know all about many of the work-arounds you mention, but they are much trouble, and usually its too much trouble. Its kind of like taking the cookies out of your house. Yes you could leave the house and go to the store and stuff your face there, but having them out of your house tends to be a big help in the diet. At 10pm when the urge strikes, having all these hoops to jump through greatly increases the chance I will turn it into a chance to pray about why Im not finding all my joy in the Lord. Its a start.
A fool and his money are soon parted is a notable aphorism. Over the years I have observed that greedy/vain fools and their money are parted sooner. Having just been invited to join the morons club I did the usual and googled;a JeffM from California appears on a number of the spam website forums extolling the virtues of these shitbags. His enthusiasm and dedication to visiting the various sites begs the question; is it an alias for Mr. J.M. Blakely!!
I was contacted several years ago by a rep from Strathmore - I'll admit, I was a skeptical, because I've been established in my industry for over 15 years, so the sudden interest in my business was both surprising and confusing. It was a back and forth battle, and I agreed to an introductory membership of 1 year - I'm not a hired gun for the company, and I can understand the distrust of anything that costs money, but my experience has honestly been nothing but positive. I've made several contacts in my field, and have since upgraded to a 5-year membership - and the plaque that I received, although many people seem to be bashing it, has been a useful tool in establishing credibility when an average Joe walks into my store and sees it. Spending less than $100 a year to bring potential business in has been worth it for me, but maybe it's a niche market depending on your industry or field. What I'd say to these "WHAT A SCAM" people on here is how established are you really? How successful are you really that a minimal investment in your business is a "scam"?
