    TXLady..
    I too appreciate your assessment of this story. If a person cannot or will not come to God through what many of us would consider to be ‘normal channels’ like reading and believing what the Word has to say about the Lord, then who am I to dismiss out of hand some phenomenon He may wish to employ in order to get someone’s attention.
    The manifestation gift of Discerning of Spirits is woefully lacking in Christendom these days, and that I fear is because too many Christians have settled for feel good sermons and have no real intimate understanding and interaction with the Holy Spirit. How can one discern deception accurately if that same one is unfamiliar with the Genuine Article?

    Keres:
    From past conversations with you I remember you said you had a relationship with the Lord at one time. If that is in fact true, He has already found you, and, even if you have given up on Him, He said He would never leave you nor forsake you.
    Religion too often poisons the well for people who are seeking but never find out enough to recognize the visitations they have had from Him, because He doesn’t fit the description they have been fed. Peace to you!

    Perhaps Jezebel? Oh, sorry, the dictionary definition of a ‘jezebel’ has Hillary’s photo next to it.

    Oxymorons are not unlike an oxidized inter-course from what I hear..

    In the old days this was called ‘publish or perish’. What is conveniently ignored is that methane (ch4) is the basic building block of virtually all hydrocarbons that eventually wind up as oil. Not all oil came from dead dinosaurs, but far more likely that some enterprising bacteria that love eating trash came up with a wonderful by product called oil. Methane is usually a by-product of decomposition of organic material done in the absence of adequate oxygen where it would otherwise become CO2, which in turn would become carbonic acid when combined with water vapor. Carbonates are the result and are another vital piece to most if not all living organisms. Funny how this all works together, but of course one must never underestimate what “chance” can do..

    I know you have heard this before but part of the package God gave mankind is a thing called free will. Adam was perfect, but chose to give it up. Jesus Christ came perfect and chose to keep it. Nice work God!

    More fear and panic straight to you from the Chicken Little School of Atmospheric Sciences.
    I live in Eastern Washington State where hydro-power has been established at least since ol’ Roosevelt single handedly built Grand Coulee Dam and then all the subsequent ones that have turned the once mighty Columbia River into a series of holding ponds. Oy! What are the tree huggers ever going to do with this information?? Never mind all the other reservoirs that have been around since the very early 20th Century all to serve the irrigation needs of this otherwise wind-swept temperate zone desert. By the way, I wonder if the Wazzoo based study took into account how much CO2 fixing has gone on with all the plant material that has been enabled to grow because of the dams out here (Grand Coulee doesn’t just generate power..)? They all have been irrigating dry sagebrush and turning it into fruit trees, hay, grapes, row crops, hops (beer on the hoof) as well as all the well watered lawns from Yakima to the Tri-Cities (not to mention the Columbia Basin..) for years now and who knows what impact this has had on the environment. Not all impact is bad, but to hear the nay-sayers talk, mankind hasn’t done a bit of good for ol’ Ma Nature.

    Is this the guy who put the “rat” in DemocRAT?

  • [33] October 30, 2014 at 10:32am

    Which ‘god’? Certainly not the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, but the ‘god of this age’ more than likely. And, while we are at it, consider the old saying that man is ‘made in the image of God’… not true I am afraid. The man, Adam, WAS made in the image of God, but the little ol’ incident in the Garden changed that. So, now all who are ‘sons of Adam’ (hint: all of us..) are made not in the image of God but in the image of Adam, which is why Jesus Christ came to redeem us from the devil’s pawnshop and again make us ‘in the image of God’.
    There is a reason Jesus Christ is called the ‘second Adam’. He was and remains to this day, perfect as Adam originally was.

    Perhaps have some conservative legal minds look into the possibility of having the law licenses of the perpetrating lawyers pulled for “review” to see if there would be grounds for disbarment.. give ‘em a taste of the same medicine, yesss! presciousss!

    Prov:
    Have you ever read the account of Balaam and Balak in Numbers? There is a lesson to be learned there about blessings and cursings. Repeatedly Balak wanted Balaam to curse Israel, but God kept intervening with Balaam and telling him not to curse what God had blessed. Balaam of course was what one could call a ‘prophet for hire’, but words do mean things and curses are real problems. What Balaam wanted was Balak’s money, but for a time he did fear what God said to him. The little secret in all this is that Balaam DID find a way for Israel to be cursed and this is the kicker in the abortion mess we have today. Balaam told Balak what to do in order for God (because of His justice..) to have to curse Israel himself, and it was to get the people of Israel to intermarry with the people of Balak. Today, God has no choice but to curse America because of all of the innocent blood being shed by abortions. “what have you done?? Your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground..” or so God said to Cain because of the shedding of his brother’s innocent blood. The only way out of this is of course to stop the shedding of the blood of innocents, but then repentance must kick in. I fear for our nation and for it’s people.

    Consider this:
    The nation we call Israel today really is what is left of the Kingdom of Judah. The nation of “Israel” was carried off and dispersed far and wide as the saying goes. There is evidence of “Israel” all over Europe and in particular Britain and because of our connection with England, also America. Go and read the blessings Jacob/Israel pronounced over Ephraim and Manasseh, the two sons of Joseph. These prophecies have an uncanny resemblance to the British Commonwealth and of course America.
    We should indeed be concerned how this nation of ours treats the “Apple of God’s Eye”, but let us remember to look at the whole picture as much as we can, as God sees things and not how the world sees things.

    Adv3:
    That is all fine and good but Jesus Christ confronted the religious leaders of his day (who have every resemblance to the tyrannical elements in our own society) in a most blunt way: “ye are of YOUR father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it” (Jn. 8:44)
    The Church today needs to have wisdom of when to confront and when to disappear into the woodwork as it were. Chinese Christians know all about how ‘compassionate’ a government can be toward them and their beliefs, we need to get a clue from them as to how to comport ourselves.

    Noo, there is another answer to this dilemma you pose and that is: you are attributing to God things he does not do. If God has given mankind free will (and you are exhibiting that quality quite nicely by your unbelief) then He also has decided to allow man to crash and burn if that is the direction man wants to take. Call it the enemy of man’s soul (the devil) or merely man’s unlimited capacity for evil behavior, but God does not torture anyone, ever. He does allow things to happen but ALWAYS leaves a way out. If a person doesn’t take the escape, is that then God’s fault?
    And, your view of eternity is more of Dante’s Inferno than the Bible. Casting a soul away from the presence of God, and considering that God is said to be everywhere present, can only mean that the end of disobedience is to cease to exist.
    So, in conclusion the way out of it is not to call God ignorant but to consider yourself to be so, and hopefully take steps to remedy that condition.

    I apologize; I had forgotten you had told be some while back that you had at one time professed Christianity. If we were some where secure I might ask you some more personal questions but as too much information given on this site I don’t believe to be wise, I will keep them to myself. Have a good weekend.

    jj:
    Forgive me; I should have posted that I do not attribute to God the use of ‘magic’. My response to Lucretius said that most magic today is ‘prestidigitation’ or sleight of hand. The magic you referenced is the evidence of supernatural but attributed to ‘the other side’ if you will. Much of what God has done has and is counterfeited by the Enemy. But a person who is ignorant of the genuine article, even to the denial of the existence of God is ripe for deception as one must first be familiar with the original in order to spot the counterfeit.

    So sorry to have missed your epithet directed at me but it was quite enjoyable nonetheless. My response to you is the same I have offered to other detractors from the miraculous: your acceptance or your requirement of “proof” is not prerequisite for validity. Your denial is merely a rather graphic example of biting of your own nose to spite your face. I pity the poor atheist who spends his/her time spewing out invective aimed at a Being who ‘doesn’t exist’. And you and your ilk have the temerity to call us insane.. Go figure.

    Sars..:
    Glory to God! I have heard of other incidences like the one you shared. But if you are waiting for a response from the ‘atheist-in-chief’, don’t be holding your breath. The stony silence on your question is likely enough an answer as some misdirecting attempt in order to cast aspersions on your sanity/validity. Have a great weekend!

    It already is in place. We have an initiative before the voters that would on the surface make background checks for gun purchase more ‘effective’. That is true, but what it gives the ******** here is more information as to where ALL the guns are. This abortion of a law would make it illegal for me (for instance) to allow my daughter to use my gun for target practice without first have a state sanctioned outlet perform a ‘background check’ on my own daughter. Insanity on parade but what do you expect from the Capitol Hill crowd that rules Seattle?
