    ANd Peter stated that in the last days there would be scoffers.

    Thanks for fulfilling prophecy! *g*

    southerninfidel, this is an interesting issue with quite a bit more going on than most folks are aware of.

    First of all, you are absolutely correct; we should all remember the parable of the 10 virgins – 5 were ready & 5 were not. And, yes, this is the most important point.

    Secondly, you are also correct; folks have been predicting the end since the beginning. However, looking at the historical evidence and so forth I’d conclude we actually are at the point in history where the end of that period that has been called, “The Time of the Gentiles” or “The Age of the Church”. That is, we are approaching that time when God turns His attention and focus on Israel.

    Now, if you dig a bit, particularly by looking at Sir Robert Anderson’s book, “The Coming Prince” ( ) and some other sources you will discover that Daniel predicted TO THE DAY when Jesus would enter Jerusalem.

    Daniel also predicts TO THE DAY when Jesus will return *** HOWEVER *** what we do not know is the day when that particular clock start and as Jesus said, no one else knows either. But, we DO KNOW that when a certain event takes place, as per Daniel, that there will be 3 1/2 years going forward.

    To be candid I do NOT want to know that day as it would mean I am in the middle of the Great Tribulation. No thank you. I’m just saying that there are things we can know and should know but we should also NOT ever say what that day is.

    You are an uninformed idiot.

    I know Greg personally and have sine we both graduated from Newport Harbor High School in 1970. Do your research and you’ll find that someone “pranked” the ceremony and the sprinklers came on.

    I have also been a Christian from 1970 as well. and even lent him my car one day when he was going out to Riverside to do a little bible study. Where did that end up?

    Stupid people like you , particularly those of the faith, should be ashamed of themselves. Or has God suddenly become smaller and needs your help?

    Shame on you.

    I’m sure He’s writing all of this down to use as guidance going forward and will, no doubt, ask you for help at some point to discern between the sheep and goats.

    Simple question: If he DID provide you this proof would you believe?

    Not knowing is different than choosing to not know.

    If not then your issue is moral depravity not intellectual purity. You’re not honest in other words because if you were you’d simply follow the facts as they were you would conclude there is a God and you are responsible to your maker.

    If you honestly do not know where to look or are turned off as a result of being burned by all of the religious charlatans that would be totally understandable. I say this as an evangelical that most are ostensibly in the evangelical community. God hates hypocrisy, particularly of the religious sort.

    But if it is a sincere lack of knowledge please ask; there are lots of resources available for the HONEST skeptical mind and none for the dishonest skeptical mind. Get the point? You make your own spiritual bed (which you will lay down in for eternity) by your attitude.

    Think about it.

    Darkness cannot abide light. And WILL not.

    At the end of the day it is a simple matter of choice. There are two groups; those who want the truth and those who do not. All the verbal pretending (religious or not) they they want truth is shown to be the hypocrisy it is by the evidence of their lives.

    Read John 5:40 is a great place to see various translations and interpretations. They help give a better “flavor” of the depth of meaning found in the original languages. Here’s a link for John 5:40

    J-Mo, you really should do a little more research.

    Science would not even exist as an intellectual discipline as we know it were it not for one simple presumption; that (my words) careful observations and tests, done repeatedly using the same criteria will product the same results. That whole notion is based upon one simple assumption: order. Do the same thing the same way – always get the same results.

    Order violates the OBSERVED and proven decay in the universe. Order requires thought. You take it from there skippy.

    Almost all of the early scientists like Newton. Make up your own mind but at least use it. Look at if you will.

    Yes, of course, and “gun free zones” only protect the self-righteous egos of those who are stupid enough in their arrogance to think others, especially law breakers, actually care what they think.

  • [30] October 5, 2015 at 10:18pm

    AllPeopleFreePeople, Indeed.

    The way this young man’s life has ended has, for him, such a terrible consequence and such a terrible waste of human potential. The Lord doesn’t want anyone to go to hell AND those who do are there by their own choice. Naturally, he shouldn’t have done this and of course there should be swift and severe consequences for his actions.

    And, of course, the survivors now have to deal with almost incalculable grief. I know some of them Jesus personally and I know He will provide comfort. He can because He was also murdered. He “gets” it.

    Oh, that men would worship the Lord and give thanks for His goodness. Gratitude brings great healing and true forgiveness removes the ability of others to hurt.

    Now, there’s the nub of it.

    G.K. Chesterton said, “If there were no God, there would be no atheists.” ( ) and he was correct.Even the Greek origin of the word ‘Athiest’ is a composition of ‘theist’ ( a believer in god or gods) and the letter ‘a’ (alpha) which negates the associated word. This is known as a “Privative a” ( )

  • [2] September 11, 2015 at 8:05pm

    chucketuna, I’d suggest a distinction with a difference in the words you’e used.

    Some things are so wonderful that human words would not do them harm by virtue of the incompleteness of the content of those words. That Paul was unable to put what he saw into words what he saw is not the same as being forbidden to utter a description of what he saw – only that his description would miserably fall short.

    I had such an event take place in my life some 45 years ago. No accident or horrible event. I, with two other fellows, were in prayer. Nothing special or out of the ordinary – just thee guys praying.

    Remember the camera shutters? They’d be closed and pressing the button would open and close extremely rapidly. “F stops”. Typically in the range of 1 second to 1/1000 of a second, or more.

    My experience was about the speed of a normal camera shutter – and that’s it; nothing more. However, what I saw was the outline of a human-shaped figure of pure light. Imagine a human shaped form with light radiating out in a complete sphere sort of deal. Now, to try and describe this “light” I find impossible as there are no words for it. I can string a few measly words together (clear-colored-light life substance love knowledge awareness holiness purity joy warmth fear total beauty-everything). My reaction? Matthew 5:3 – Filthy blessed wretch. 45 years later it is still as powerful as then. I confess – I am lovesick as a result –

    Sort of like your thinking process – a staged event?

  • [1] September 6, 2015 at 12:10am


    [smile] It will be fools day for those who turn their backs on God – sadly. – regardless of what month or day.

    Death is certain. Giving an account of one’s self to God is certain. Neither you nor I will escape that event. I believe that what Jesus accomplished, and only that act, will provide me a way to escape certain judgement for my sin. That God would love me, such as I am, is a wonderful amazement to me and for which I give thanks. I would love to be able to persuade others to look at the evidence but most folks care more for this life than their eternal destiny. Again, sad.

    Many people believe in Jesus but do not believe Jesus. I could no more force someone to believe than I could hold my nose and float in the air. But, to encourage others to take these matters seriously is a great privilege.

  • [6] September 5, 2015 at 11:25am

    That would be wrong to do in any case whether driven by religious fervor or the fervor of material gain. I suspect in the case of the Indians it is more likely the latter.

    How does that stack up against the over 100 million people murdered in the name of the religion of man; also known as Humanism, Atheism, Socialism, Communism or Fascism? Or Islamism?

    I don’t recall Christians ever roasting people on a spit or putting them in cages and tossing them into water.

    And, what, pray tell, are you actually doing about this? Or are you just using this as an excuse to avoid the very real and hard issues of life. Easy to talk and pretend you’re smarter and more morally correct than others I suppose.

    It’s both – God’s view of time is not linear as ours is.

    “If God doesn’t soon bring judgment upon America, He’ll have to go back and apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!” — Ruth Graham when reading a draft of “World Aflame”

    The day is certain.
