    “Mormonism has no understanding of scriptures because the denie where Christianity came from JUDAISM”

    LOL that’s cute. I quote from the Book of Mormon here:

    2 Nephi 29:4-6
    “But thus saith the Lord God: O fools, they shall have a Bible; and it shall proceed forth from the Jews, mine ancient covenant people. And what thank they the Jews for the Bible which they receive from them? Yea, what do the Gentiles mean? Do they remember the travails, and the labors, and the pains of the Jews, and their diligence unto me, in bringing forth salvation unto the Gentiles?

    5 O ye Gentiles, have ye remembered the Jews, mine ancient covenant people? Nay; but ye have cursed them, and have hated them, and have not sought to recover them. But behold, I will return all these things upon your own heads; for I the Lord have not forgotten my people.

    6 Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. Have ye obtained a Bible save it were by the Jews?

    The problem with Rapture is that he clearly doesn’t believe in salvation by the grace of Jesus, whereby we are saved by confessing and repenting our sins and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

    Rather, he clearly believes in “salvation by catechism” whereby you are only saved if you accept the correct interpretation of this or that doctrine…which is really just another form of salvation by works.

    There is another possible explanation as well.

    As a Christian who does not believe in the Evangelical interpretation of “the Rapture”, I imagine that I will not enjoy the Left Behind series (I’m just not a fan of Rapture or most Apocalypse based media). People will enjoy a bad film if it suits their tastes. Likewise, people can not like a movie and objectively understand why it meets the academic criteria of a “good film”.

    So it’s quite possible that the 10,000 viewers are people who went to see the film, who ALREADY FIGURED THEY WERE GOING TO LIKE IT, (I mean, would YOU spend $15 on a ticket if you didn’t think you would at least mildly enjoy the film?) vs. critics who get paid to watch the movie and critique.

    Of course, I’ll reserve final judgement until I actually see the film, but based on the trailers, I have a feeling that it just won’t be my cup of tea. That doesn’t mean I have an ax to grind against Christians or Christian film. (As a Christian, I would LOVE to see better Christian films out there, and I think we are seeing definite progress with regards to Christian cinematography. That doesn’t mean that every Christian film that agrees with our dogmas is going to be a blockbuster.)

    It’s not undecipherable. It clearly says “Wherever add. [address] is located”

    Remybink: “If it was to be a mystery then the days would NOT be numbered.
    called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.”

    Except that there is sufficient evidence to suggest that a “day” did not mean a literal 24-hour period, but rather a distinct age or time period that was unique relative to the rest. Thus the “morning” and the “evening” of a Day in the Genesis account would merely mean “one creative period that had a definitive beginning (morning) and end (night)”.

    So just because God created the Heavens and the Earth in seven Days does not necessarily mean He created it in seven days. Capiche?

    What a shocker: people who suffer from same-sex attraction also suffer from body-image issues…

    Seriously? We paid for this? :/

    Don’t be silly Jewin.

    Muslim Clerics don’t shower. ;)

    And let’s be clear here: when he says “humiliate polytheism” he is referring to Christians; to the Jews and Muslims the Christian concept of the Trinity is polytheistic. He probably felt the need to couch the term Christian tho since he is in a Catholic country.

    Might want to keep an eye on this one Spain…

    If I didn’t know better I’d assume that the Blaze just post stories about the LDS Church just to hack off ignorant bigots like Raptur (I didn’t know dinosaurs were coming!). I know I would ;)

    PS Acts 17:28-29 says we are ALL the offspring of God, and the rapture is not Biblical. Stick that in your Pharisaical tailpipe and smoke it. :)

    @canuksocialist

    Plenty of people in the American criminal justice system who were innocent who’ve been found “guilty”, and just as many who figured they should plead guilty to avoid being railroaded by corrupt prosecutors who care more about their win streaks than they do about justice.

    Not that facts matter to a troll like yourself.

  • [5] May 19, 2014 at 12:24am

    Well technically… :P

    I see a lot of hate/butthurt from the Alex Jones bootlicks/paid progressive trolls/violent reactionaries who seem to prefer the title “martyr” over “patriot” (tho they no doubt think themselves the latter).

    Just thought I would point out the obvious: No one, but especially not Glenn Beck, really cares that you are mad at him. So cry the world a river, build it a bridge, and get over it. No one wants to listen to you QQ.

  • April 20, 2014 at 1:28pm

    Of course there is another theory, which is sure to hack of the secularists and militant atheists: That Jesus died and was resurrected according to prophecy, the Gospel is true, and it was taught to Adam and Eve and their posterity that they might prepare for the coming of their Lord and Savior, only for some of Adam and Eve’s children to reject the fulness of the Gospel and adopt beliefs that they liked while rejecting others, thus creating the multitude of religions that have existed throughout history. This would explain the similarities while presenting Christianity as the sole true and living religion.

    Ben Carson, because of his stated view on guns, would not be my first choice. BUT I could vote for him, provided he had Ted Cruz as a VP pick and a host of other Tea Party favorites as cabinet members. (Paul for Treasury, Gowdy for AG, you get the idea). Why? Because he has proven himself to be a good and humble man. Unlike our current president, he would listen to the voice of We the People, and he would not be a divisive force in this country.

    I believe he would uphold his oath to the Constitution, and more than someone who agrees with me, I want someone who will defend and protect the Constitution of the United States regardless of his views.

    Matajudios is better translated as “Jew killer”, so the name probably refers to a Spaniard who made a name for himself during the Inquisition. I don’t think you can just insert a “no” in there.

  • April 13, 2014 at 8:50pm

    FYI: A better translation would be “Catrillo Jew-Killer.” (I speak fluent spanish) Castrillo is a surname, so I wonder if it’s named after some Spaniard who made a name for himself in during the Inquisition.

  • [1] March 24, 2014 at 12:28pm

    I see a lot of self-proclaimed listeners of Glenn Beck who don’t seem to be paying attention to what he’s been focusing on these last few years.

    Whether you agree like Oprah or not, whether you like Kevin Hart or not, whether or not you agree with their politics: this was a feel-good, positive, inspirational story. We should be able to enjoy it regardless of who it happened to.

    Maybe we should stop being so jaded and cynical that we can’t see goodness right in front of us because of the politics of others. Just a thought.

    Hey concerned,

    I played with/watched My Little Ponies when I was a kid in the 80′s. (I also played with/watched Ghostbusters and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) I now am happily married to a wonderful woman, own a few firearms (which I love to shoot when I can afford the ammo) and have several years training in martial arts.

    Tell me again to my face how my parents raised a wuss?
