    The US has tried to integrate China’s economy to avoid such a war.
    But our values on humanity are different and if a terrible economy occurs, then that tie that binds removes the only thing holding back China on a military basis. Make no mistake, China’s leadership is very war hawkish and most of the military leadership has had to be held back from aggressive moves against the US in the past decade. If we have a economic collapse, then those old world historical values of “Resources” become the primary issue and history has shown such to become a primary reason for war. China has been very aggressive with the south seas around Japan as of late as well talking about such things as trading Los Angeles for Taiwan. Because it’s not about the human loss, its about the resources gained. These are very dangerous times and with other threats to the US, again with nations that do not share our values, this makes this extremely dangerous.

    Actually, this has implications of both the Democrats, in particular with Clinton released technologies illegally to China, but also on a broader scale with the Bush’s policy to integrate China into the new world order through the economy. The Bush’s had been ambassadors to China and felt the best way to avoid war was by opening up the economies and technologies to China.
    BUT…
    The culture is different, our values are not the same and the New World Order touting Moral Equivalency does not work with a nation that does not value humanity at large. That is the problem with dictators, progressives, liberals, communist, they look at people as numbers and ask can we: trade Taiwan for Los Angeles?
    Which brings us to the crux of this issue, that our government at large does not represent the people they are elected to represent and they themselves have lost perspective of the global picture trying to bring world governments together. The latest example is of the newly elected Republican house and senate caving on the budget. The reason they have the largest change of power between the two parties was to put a stop to such.
    Until the citizens start to elect people who truly care and value the values this country was founded on, this country is at huge risk because countries like China and those in the middle east have a skewed view of what conventional and unconventional war brings. Both countries leadership lack perspective on reality and that’s extremely dangerous.

    The ten commandments noted to not Murder ( an unjustified killing). Most people say not to kill, but that is not correct. Moses was no mass murderer.
    Given Moses was doing the bidding of God’s commands, it was NOT murder. It was justified in the eyes of God killing bad / evil people. Yes, there are differences between good and evil and if anyone would know who, I would trust the God of the Torah directives.

    mojoman, Jesus noted he was here not to change one jot or tittle of his fathers words. That is the dot of an i or the crossing of a T. There were two factions of Jews in Jerusalem, Sadducees who were zealots that ran the temple and the Essene, whome for it appears that not only John the Baptist, but possibly Jesus and his family as well, were close to the Qumran community. It was the zealots who persecuted Jesus, but he also had a very strong following of Essene Jews when he preached in Jerusalem. When the priest called forth a crowd to prosecute Jesus,they called just their closest members that night. Many of not most of the Jews in that city were critical of what had happened leading to the unrest and eventual fall of the temple 70 years later as Rome was tired of the in fighting of the Jewish factions after Jesus death.
    Jesus clarified written torah versus oral torah rules made to try to follow the Old Testament as well to graft gentiles to the covenant of God. There was no cancellation of the past covenant, as Jesus said no words of his fathers had changed. Rather he clarified what Rabbis had dictated trying to follow those words.

    Feel sorry for verycobaltviolet. He is ignorant that there is more evidence that the bible is a reliable source than any other book of the ancient world. Numerous organizations, government, theologies and non believer have tried to denounce it over history and failed to do so. All they can spout are false soundbites hoping that by stating false facts repeatedly, they will stick. Famous atheist who have gone out to disprove the bible have become the staunchest believers including the likes of CS Lewis, JR Tolkein, Lee Strobel as well many Nobel Laureates. Perhaps one day, he will look into it and realize his own folly.
    I would suggest he read “The Case for Faith” by Lee Strobel as a beginning step in seeking out the truth. “The Case for Christ” is another great book Strobel has written.

    Want to get a real view of Exodus, watch on youtube “Mountain of Fire” or rent the DVD to see the actual sites of Exodus and Mt Sinai. No greater way to cement your faith then by looking at so sites and many artifacts from that incredible event.

    There is a real reason the Bible has been the best selling book in the history of mankind and known as the greatest story ever told.

    Typical tactic when they are stymied otherwise, Tells me to take something out of context so they can then make an opposing statement out of context. Not much of a rational to the discussion.

  • December 12, 2014 at 10:56pm

    I suppose you could make up a reason for every one of those quotes as application to someone else or past times or modern times if you get creative.
    But… they all match up to the documented life of Jesus. And again… the odds of such happening are statistically impossible. There are Orthodox Jew that still try to provide answers or ignore the text as they don’t want to believe that Jesus was the Messiah. Atheist, yes absolutely, in the same vein you claimed that the bible translations are off even with overwhelming evidence backed up by older historical text written in the times, they still claim both the old and new testament to be inaccurate. Again, any in depth look shows the sound bites to be false but a bell rung is hard to un ring and repeated enough, some people start to take what they hear as gospel even if they don’t believe in gospel.

    I think there are several reasons why people don’t want to believe. Some because people want to live by their own rules, not by what the faith dictates, people want to have control over their lives. Those are huge factors, especially in a society that pushes a “me” attitude and material over spiritual. The story of mankind through the ages.

    You can live the way you choose to. If I am wrong, we both still live hopefully good lives. If I am right, death is but just the start for me while with you…
    I hope you look into faith more and life continues to be an education.

  • December 12, 2014 at 7:02pm

    So, you are saying all the prophecies noted above have happened to many people, that such is very common placed? lol I would say just as the video has shown, the weight of evidence is overwhelming statistically speaking.

  • December 12, 2014 at 6:57pm

    His argument though lacks any strength as he is asking to take any quote out of context to then make a full constructed point. It is a fallacy of logic. However, when I provide the solid quotes that are relevant to the point I made, ( in this case the video showing how hard it is for so many [prophecies to be fulfilled by one person) it stops him dead. He has to again ask for evidence out of context in order for him to say it is obviously something out of context.

  • [3] December 12, 2014 at 4:31pm

    You did not watch the video did you? the point being those 60 some prophesies of Jesus Birth, the impossible statistical odds that one man could fulfill even 8 of them. 10 to the 17th power, all of them, 10 to the 57th power.

    Could one man fulfill one of those (strongest or weakest of your choice), yes. Eight, hard to do. 60, statistically impossible. Most individual statement could be explained, some of them or all of them together, cannot. Again prophecies as well made hundreds of years before he was born.

    You can argue out of context as out of context would not make sense, but for my point made, it is inarguable. Scientifically, accurately, statistically speaking.

  • [3] December 12, 2014 at 4:12pm

    My whole point in posting those 60 some prophesies of Jesus Birth (some edited out by the Blaze), being that along with the video, the impossible statistical odds that one man could fulfill even 8 of them. 10 to the 17th power, all of them, 10 to the 57th power.
    And again, those being old testament, of which the modern King James bible matches up to 99.99% pf the dead sea scrolls, even after the (atheist sound bite) inaccuracies of translation. And of those mistranslations, the context remains intact. Example, rope through the eye of a needle versus camel through the eye of a needle. ( Rope was made from camel fur, hence the translation mistake).
    Which is why atheist like to say the sound bite, but cannot name any of those inaccuracies. Which you would have though they would be running to after the dead sea scrolls being found had they were actually there, which again, just further showed how accurate the modern bible is.

  • [3] December 12, 2014 at 3:14pm

    And to note, the King James Bible after being “translated” to the old testament dead sea scrolls found in the 70′s, lines up in translation 99.99% in accuracy. Sorry to burst that atheist bubble of yours. Most of the errors are off in slight context. Like the saying: “It is easier to pass a camel through the eye of a needle than a rich man to go to heaven.” It should have been translated, “It is easier to slide a rope through the eye of a needle than a rich man to go to heaven.” The material original camel fur used for ropes at the time was mistranslated, but the context remained intact.

    A school house rock type video on the statistics of filling just 8 of the 300 prophecies in the bible for Jesus Christ. Weighing the evidence statistically.

    One of those cases where I would almost feel drawing and quartering a person would be applicable. The Romans made it an art of killing someone slowly for crimes just like this.

    They should be asking all residences to dig out the sewer drains and dig drainage ditches in the snow to them. THAT would be the common sense thing to do. If it is raining and there is no drainage, it will accumulate and refreeze. THAT will be a disaster.

    Right now, the people there should be thinking ahead and acting on it now.

  • November 20, 2014 at 10:30am

    There are two key factors as to why this is being done.
    The democrats have used the uneducated, those with apathy and those who do not value the foundational values of this country to change it. It is why they have used the judicial courts with political activism, have gone to the more uneducated poor and labor demographics to manipulate them, and now push to add more of those people to the voting pools. Those crossing the boarders want all the material things we enjoy here, but with an entitlement mentality.

    The second purpose is to bankrupt the system. Collapse it. And if it causes chaos at an opportune moment:
    http://shoebat.com/2014/11/19/muslim-antichrist-just-given-important-shocking-speech-century/
    All the better to deceive and keep the minds of people off the big picture.

    We are seeing a huge push for the beginning of the end. This is just a means of accomplishing such, hurting those who can do something about it and distracting them while others make their moves.
