LittleDTO – you think God should just make everything happen the way He wants, to keep everything nice and pretty and happy? Just because He is all powerful doesn’t mean He is going to constantly exert that power and make everyone do good.
God doesn’t tell us we have to suffer to get the prize. EVERYONE suffers whether they are aiming for the prize or not.
You may have read the words but you don’t understand.

God doesn’t require you to suffer. These kids died from a tragic accident, not from God doing it. Our world is fallen and bad crap happens to everyone. Trusting God doesn’t mean your life is always good and everythign gets fixed, it means God gets you through the bad crap with out you completely losing yourself to grief.
We are not pawns on God’s chessboard, destined to do what He says. We have free will. He is just outside of time so He knows the choices we will make.

What happens with divorce? Or if your wife dies and you marry another? This makes no sense.
And I whole-heartedly, totally reject what J Smith says. God killed them because they were too good for the rest of us. Disgusting.
 May 26, 2015 at 4:22pm
Please don’t say that maybe God took them home to prevent a greater heartache. This is not comforting and is what makes people angry at God. Why would a loving God kill a person rather than do something else to deliver that person from “a greater heartache”? Why would He choose death instead of life?
 May 26, 2015 at 4:20pm
So true what you say. One of my granddaughters died in a house fire over a year ago and there was no reason for it except that bad things happen; we live in a fallen world. God didn’t take my Lissie home because He had a greater plan. She died in a tragic accident. I never got mad at God, but I’m older and have lived through a lot so I think it helped me trust Him through the awfullness of her death.

blah, blah, blah. I believe in God and this was a true sign, I think there is no god and you are stupid to believe, and on and on and on ad infinitum. I couldn’t read all of this blabber. I’ve read all this stuff before too many times. No one changes anyone’s mind and it’s just annoying.
I am a Christian and I do believe that God sometimes does special things for people. I don’t know why sometimes it happens and sometimes a person is decapitated and not protected. I can’t figure that out. I wasn’t there in that guy’s head. I don’t care if it was a real sign or not. I don’t personally know the dude. He thinks it is, that’s his life and business. Why do we care so much about Hollywood actors?
Ahhhh, bigots like you are cute......and quite stupid. Enjoy the "free" things my tax dollars buy for you.
Because of 2 things: First, despite the ads that say real people not actors, they Are fellow human beings. Secondly, because Christians in Hollywood are almost as rare as hen's teeth.

kaydee – keeping the unity should never take the place of right theology. The emergent church theology is so messed up I will not be unified with them. Max has nice books that talk about God’s love but if he’s emergent than he’s wrong.

I was present when a demon was manifested in someone I knew and loved. It wasn’t fake. It was real. I had been led to fast and pray for a week before that for an unknown reason, and I NEVER fast and was surprised I did it, and then that happened out of the blue. The person liked having the demon and was not delivered. And I no longer have anything to do with that person.

The people on that tire ride all using selfies! That is ridiculous. They are on a ride with friends, and they are taking pictures of themselves..

Go read Proverbs. It tells us to stay away from thhis sort of “entertainment”. I guess you are too “educated” and “moral”, and watching evil things doesn’t bother you. You must be the exception.
AND, of COURSE I (as a moral person) am allowed to judge someone creating art. If I think it immoral or ungodly, I can say so. Do you think “Piss Christ” is OK? If you do, you have a warped idea of art.
Go read Matthew 7:1.
If you're watching the show, or any show, simply for the "smut" then I could see that as a problem.
There are virtually no shows one can watch if the simple presence of anything immoral renders a show un-watchable.
Game of Thrones is not "lots of people would have sex and die, and there would be blood and nudity and more sex, and then sex followed by sex, which would often occur right after a sex scene" as this article tries to pretend. Not even close.
Is sex and nudity present in the show? Sure. But some of us watch it for the story. The deep and intricate numerous stories that tie into the overall story. So take your judgement elsewhere.
Kind of like reading Penthouse for the articles...gotchya....
 May 20, 2015 at 12:47pm
I don’t have to watch a show to know what it contains. We can look that info up on the internet. Context does not matter. It only matters to those who love the show, because it’s like a brual soap opera. They leave you hanging to make sure you keep watching.
Just because a show is an honest portrayal of the brutality of the period, doesn’t mean it is good for me to watch it. BTW – this is not a portrayal of any historical period. This world is completely fictional.
So the rape wasn’t actually shown? Does that matter? We know someone was being raped and it makes people uncomfortable, and so should a lot of other stuff going on in that show.
By that logic atheists can just judge how brutal the OT is because you know who cares about context right?
 May 20, 2015 at 12:36pm
I completely disagree with you radoc
Taking your logic, I should watch snuff pornography because after all, God made sex, and the human body is beautiful, and people do stuff like they do in porn, and I know it’s FICTIONAL so no one is really killed, so that makes it OK.
We aren’t supposed to challenge our faith by participating in, including viewing, sin. It is up to us to figure out what that means and where we draw the line of “this is OK” and “this is not OK”, but saying we should watch shows like this to challenge our faith is ridiculous.

I am disgusted with the people that just “woke up” to this show’s violence due to one rape scene. I only ever watched the first one and decided incest and murder were not for me. Not that I only watch G rated movies, but due to the controversial and disgusting first showing I could see what the future would bring and I wanted nothing of it. These people that have watched it all this time weren’t bothered by all that has been shown so far, including other rapes, castration, ridiculous amounts of sex and violence, and it’s all been fine until this one segment? The entire thing, even if it’s acted well and directed well and filmed well, is just not worth the assault to my eyes, my sensibilities and my spirit.
I seriously doubt that Matt Walsh "just woke up to this show". No doubt he decided to write the article now because of the current public controversy over the recent episode's rape scene. Most people, myself included, who have never watched the show, and never will, are aware, and have been aware since news media started reporting it, that Game of Thrones is debauched. I think you are right that most people watching it all along are probably not going to change their behavior just because of what Matt wrote. But if a few do question and change their choices when examining their commitment to Christianity, then that is a good thing.

The rapture comes – please give me a specific scripture to which you are referring that would make me decide that she had a vision from satan. Because none that you gave so far makes me think this.
Do you think any modern day visions are from God, or did all that happen in Acts and now we don’t get visions?
Satan has greatly advanced his cause through "Christian" prayer. Take for example the prayers of those who follow the Prosperity Gospel. They think God is a Cosmic Butler eager to make everyone rich if only their faith was adequate. If only they would plant a seed in the prosperity movement, they would reap an even greater harvest. They would not be sick either if they would only believe hard enough. It is a cruel delusion and a variation on a theme where Roman Catholics exploit the doctrine of Purgatory to get people to complete the work of Christ on the cross by paying and praying loved ones out of Purgatory.
I do not think I am wrong for asking if she tested the spirit / voice or for asking for what faith she is as I am to test everything aganst the scriptures and if I don't know then I cannot and I will doubt until I know
I take Acts 17:11 as it was meant, literally
Word of faith is just plain crazy
Wow The evil one sure has got a hold of some and they don’t even realize it. The evil one never encourages prayer for he knows the power of prayer to convert hearts.
Satan is a DECEIVER and soon will demand all prayer and worship to be directed at him and he will wear that sheep's clothing and appear as a being of light to get it
Your deception is stunning
 May 15, 2015 at 12:41pm
Why do you need to “test the spirit/voice/vison” when it is asking you to receive prayer requests? And tell me, how would you “test” this vision? I don’t see how it would go against any scripture.
I don’t think praying for strangers has to do with verses warning about wolf in sheep’s clothing. Nothing in the bible tells us to not pray for certain people.
Do you think world peace is important and can the world find it without the return of Jesus?
I heard nothing about what god she prays to, did I miss it? If one wants prayer all one needs do is PRAY TO JESUS, He is our intercessor. That is His role in heaven as we speak.
I want to know what god she prays to and if she did not test the spirit then she herself has no idea who that voice / vision was from now does she
She is praying to the God of love and of all creation do you know Him, rap, sometimes I wonder..
1 Thes 1:10, 1 Thes 5:9, 1 Thes 4:13-18, 1 Cor 15:50-55, Rev 3:10, Rev 5:9-10 are all rapture / resurrection verses abd results / promises associated with the results of the rapture / resurrection
If you cannot understand these verses then you are spiritually blind
I would rather be spiritually blind than spiritually asleep because I can still hear the world of God. Rapture you quote scripture brilliantly, just like the Sadducees and Pharisees, who, ironically, were the first to demand the death of Christ and did everything to have cause to destroy him. I suspect if Christ came among us at this time you wouldn't recognize him and even reject him.
The death of Jesus on the cross was not a tragedy, it was a TRIUMPH a VICTORY
It is you that does not know that Jesus came once as the suffering servant, the sacrificial lamb on His FIRST ADVENT
He Himself said He wants to burn this world and He will do so very soon. It is a shame you do not understand that when He returns it will be as THE Lord of Lords and King of Kings and will take by force what is His
Rapture, I never said or implied Christ's death was a tragedy, you assumed I did, I only pointed out how alike you were to such wicked men. You reject Christ, Its obvious when you show a lack of love or compassion for your fellowman. You do not know or fully comprehend His mission here and never will until you push pride and hate out of your heart. I believe the death on the cross was one of the most important events in the history of the world, right behind the suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane.
The Christ you appear to be thinking of doesn't seem to match the Christ I know from the scriptures. You talk as if he is eagerly awaiting to come with a desire to slaughter everyone who does not submit to his will rather than a loving and merciful God who wants to save us all, if we listen to him. He does not need to take anything by force or want to burn this world, that is more Satan's style. When He comes again, the wicked will be dead and only the righteous will be left, ones I believe who are more righteous than others. If we burn, it is because we refused to listen to the warning by his Prophets and Apostles, reject his protection and destroy ourselves, not because he wants it, otherwise he is not a god of love but of hate. You do not understand the scriptures and may never will. Why do I believe that? Because you seem to have a gross misunderstanding of the scriptures and lack compassion.
I quote you “I believe the death on the cross was one of the most important events in the history of the world, right behind the suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane.”
The suffering in the garden of Gethsemane has salvation value at all. The gospel is this 1 Cor 15:1-4. By your words you identify you are a mormon and are not a Christian.
Your jesus is a created being that is spirit brother to Lucifer and at the rapture you will be left behind as you deny 'THE' Jesus of 'THE' scriptures and for this you will face the wrath of God (John 3:36)
You don’t know the Jesus of scriptures and evidently you don’t know the scriptures either
Luke 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
Matt 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
Those are the very words of ‘THE’ Jesus Christ of ‘THE’ scriptures of whom you do not know as will be shown at the rapture
Rapture, only God knows the thoughts and intents of our hearts, and whether or not someone is a Christian, not you. There is only one Christ and we all serve him, even you and me, we just have different beliefs about the best way to serve him. Its just that you lack plain and precious truth that have been lost or removed by wicked men.
And as I said before, you look at Christ as if he is eagerly awaiting to destroy the world, but the scriptures are a warning to the wicked. If you knew who He is, then you'd know he will do that, not because he will enjoy it but because the wicked won't repent.
You obviously know nothing about who Christ is. I can tell you who He is; Christ is the Son of the Living God who was slain for the sins of the world that whosoever repents and believes can be saved. He is the Good Shepard and the Prince of Peace. Many that say, "Lord, Lord" will not make it into the Kingdom of Heaven. How would you know who would make it into Heaven? "By their fruits, ye shall know them."
In the bible, there is 17 points of the True Church, can you find and understand them?

There will ALWAYS be accidents. Always. People that think they can be stopped are stupid. We can be as safe as possible, but there’s no such thing as completely safe.
