    J-Mo- No, I am saying that I don’t generalize all evolutionists as descendants of monkeys simply because some think that’s what the evolution theory states. While you are always generalizing Christians as Young Earthers simply because a small percentage thinks that’s what the bible states. If you couldn’t grasp that point from my comment above, maybe you should rethink the “Christians are so dumb” attitude you so often display on these boards.

    I know you like to come to every science based story and sound really condescending, but you clearly don’t know Christianity as much as you think you do. “Christians” don’t “equate 6 days to billions of years”. CREATIONISTS believe that. An no, “creationist” is not a term that refers to all people who believe in intelligent design. It’s a type of fundamentalist Christian, but certainly not the majority of them. Far more Christians believe that God created the world billions of years ago, and the creation of life forms occurred over a period of symbolic “days” which were’t 24 hours in length.
    Dishonestly equating all Christians with Creationists is like me claiming that you evolutionists all believe we descend from Monkeys, when only a few think that. The majority believe we are cousins.

    $500,000? No, if he has them, he’d better turn them over because it’s a felony to possess classified information, or to even know it exists in an unsecured place without reporting it to the authorities.

    The local Fox affiliate said it drew “hundreds if not thousands” but also said the group stretched “as far as the eye could see”. Other Alabama media is saying 20,000.

    Is this a serious story? They say that right before a recession the AVERAGE has been above that line. Yet the AVERAGE is well below that (15.4) now. In fact the average this year is well below the average since 2011 (17.3) and even lower than the average since they began tracking it in 1990 (19.8)… So, after warning us that the AVERAGE is what is the indicator, they completely ignore the average and use a temporary peak as evidence that the sky is about to fall? This fear mongering is getting a little nuts. Since 2007 we’ve been told to buy gold and fill our basements with buckets of food because the end is near! Beck says “I’m always wrong about the timing”… But when you predict something for nearly a decade that has been consistently wrong, you can;t chalk that up to “timing”. If we have a collapse in 2050, Beck will say “See, I was just off on the timing!”

    “Tithe is the ten percent GOD has established for all his followers”…

    No, that is the standard God set for the ancient nation of Israel, under the law given to Moses. And it dealt with giving to support the priestly class and his temple. Both are gone. Jesus did not teach tithing. In fact he set a new standard when he pointed out the widow’s small donation in his time. He said she gave from her means of living rather than her surplus. No mention of a percentage at all. If churches are going to require their parishioners to give them a set percentage of their income and say the bible commands it, they have to reject the part of the bible that says that the Mosiac law ended with Jesus death. And they better get back to animal sacrifices…

    stair- I’ve spent 30 years studying it. The clear message Jesus taught was to remain neutral because one day God’s kingdom will put an end to all earth’s governments and it will be the one to end mankind’s problems.

    brigott- When the bible says to do “all things for God’s glory” that doesn’t mean ALL things are acceptable to God just because people think they are doing it in his name. The bible says that it is not up to mankind to rule themselves. (Jeremiah 10:23; Ecclesiastes 8:9) So why would you think that God wants you to support any human or government to do what he says they have no business doing?

  • [4] June 24, 2015 at 9:12am

    God specifically said that NONE of earth’s nations would solve the world’s problems, and that he would even destroy all of those governments. I pay all of my taxes. I obey the laws, show respect for the authorities, etc. But I am not going to say that God has chosen this or any other country to put an end to our problems because that is contrary to what the bible teaches.

    brigott- Jesus said to be no part of the world. He refused to become involved in politics and told his disciples to imitate him. When political matters came up, such as the matter of just taxes, he refused to get involved. He told his followers to preach that God’s kingdom was the only solution. He didn’t say “support an earthly solution but do it for God’s glory…”

    I really tire of all this stuff. Glenn is constantly trying to mix politics and religion. Many times he’s said to get your church involved in politics. That’s the OPPOSITE of what Jesus said and did. He lived under an oppressive government that took away the people’s rights. It was a critical time in world history then too. People were dying for their faith, society was on the brink- just like today. Yet he REFUSED to get involved in politics. He ran away when they wanted to make him King, he refused to get trapped into political debate and said “just pay your taxes”. Never once did he say any earthly kingdom should, could or would fix the problems going on. His answer was to WAIT for God’s kingdom to solve the problems. It was all about God’s kingdom for him, not Rome, not Israel, not about rising up and taking their country back. He NEVER would have called out the Emperor or Governor in the Synagogue, or endorsed any political leader, and he explicitly told his followers to be “no part of the world” because he was “no part of the world”.

    Glenn and others are doing the opposite. They speak politics from the pulpit and attempt to rally others to put their trust in themselves, or in a restored America to do what God’s kingdom is supposed to do. It shows a profound lack of understanding of Christ’s message, and a lack of faith in God’s ability to do as he promised. Glenn has become a prophet in his own mind.

    The Constitution doesn’t say that, Snow. That’s the Declaration of Independence.

    Money taken in- $6.9 million
    Paid in salaries- $337,000
    Other expenses- $1.6 million
    Paid in grants- $4.1 million

    Only $1.6 million in “expenses” is tiny considering the charity traveled all over the world, held big events, etc. Just a single 8/28 event costs that much to put on! Again, let’s be honest. There’s a lot to complain about concerning Beck. His charity is not one of them.

  • [1] June 8, 2015 at 6:29pm

    Mind- No, read the tax return linked above. Very little went to run of the mill expenses. It all went to grants for charitable causes. I am not a fan of Beck, especially not the “God is speaking through me” stuff. But let’s be honest.

  • [5] June 8, 2015 at 5:41pm

    The charity tax returns are public. There’s a link in this thread above. $7 million taken in last year. 5% paid in salaries. That’s 95% going to the causes.

    They have the power to DECIDE to prosecute. But time and again we have seen they don’t have the power to CONVICT. A grand jury had the final say in Furgeson, a trial Jury in the Trayvon Martin case.

    This isn’t the movies. You can’t just whack a high profile, powerful public figure and get away with it.

    I believe the reporting has been that he was APPROACHED by police because he was acting suspiciously in an area he was known to deal drugs in. He was ARRESTED because he ran away and resisted when they tried to detain him. What happened after that, nobody knows but the investigators.

    No, it’s dog food that has to be 30 years old because that’s the year on the headstone. And 30 years of rain never dissolved it. Oh, and that giant FLOOD that washed over the cemetery didn’t carry the food away either…

    Seriously, if I saw a freaking scorpion on my shoulder I would swat it off without thinking, and maybe scream like a girl- and so would you.
