    King Yashua, go back to wherever it is that you came from.

    @Klibanophoros; sorry for the novel! You know why my church can be okay with 5 million in buildings because the members won’t write the big checks for things that don’t effect (affect ?…should have listened better in school!) them personally. Would a man that writes a 50k check for a building with basketball (which he can drop his kid at 3x a week) write the same amount to save some Africans and Asians from starving to death? Maybe but probably not. AND that is the SAD truth and that is why my fellowship with the church is with believers from all over the world that write the checks to those starving and hungry for the gospel….even if their “check” from their tiny wages is $1.00. That is why I can NEVER EVER give another dime to the American church. I cannot cover overhead of buildings, insurance, utilities when literally thousands are dying daily without a follower of Christ ever showing them kindness and love.

    @Klibanophoros; and I type all of this on my Mac as I lay in my bed with socks to keep my feet warm, with a fire and big TV, in the other room I have indoor plumbing and more food than we can probably eat before it goes bad in the kitchen, with 4 kids in private school, so I may sound self-righteous. I know that I do but I am just looking in the mirror and thinking of that path that Jesus said is narrow and not finding anywhere in His words the doctrines of men that assure salvation apart from works. Jesus didn’t say it and I think a lot of us are on the path to hell because the church has twisted the truth and because man wants to believe what their itchy ears want to believe. I really say all of this with a broken heart from the utter failure of man to do what Jesus told us to do, knowing as a lay here in comfort with the freedom to express my opinion, moms are holding their babies in 3rd world countries while they die in their arms BUT my church building is probably worth 5 million with more buildings going up so white kids can play basketball indoors because apparently God needs basketball to speak to kids. How can one Bible church have 5M in buildings and be okay with that when 21k die a day and that doesn’t even touch the horrific suffering of sex slaves, abused children, women, etc. We are in a battle for sure and the love of money is going to take most down the path to hell. That is my heart. It is broken. LOVE and TRUTH to all my brothers and sisters in Christ!

    @Klibanophoros; and I obviously cannot speak for ALL churches. I know there are great, faithful churches out there but I do believe they are the minority and not the majority if you look at church from the words of Jesus. I believe that the kingdom within the greater church of professors is actually really small. We will know Christians by their deeds not their words. It breaks my heart that I don’t know more by their deeds but know many that have words but no deeds. This American Christianity of health, wealth, and feel good encouragement is the path to hell.

    @Klibanophoros; I believe that verse is talking about believers. Not to forsake meeting with believers, encouraging each other to love and to good deeds. I don’t see that it says anything about that meaning on Sunday morning during a church service where it is 3 minutes of the Bible and the rest is a sales pitch for us to write checks for bigger/better buildings etc. I just can’t do that anymore. I cannot be part of it. I do believe that it is disgusting to God…while 21k kids die daily from preventable diseases in utter poverty. This is my heart after 8 trips to Africa, studying the Bible for years and years and reading the Word in context of the “least of these,” and seeing the horrific suffering in Africa then coming home and realizing that maybe 5 out of my 100 or so Christian friends care at all about the least of these, orphans and widows. I am NOT trying to be hateful BUT the way we do church in America isn’t anything like what Jesus told us to do and it is just getting worse and more and more Americans are just SO clueless that it isn’t normal. Going to church and sitting in your comfy pew with your AC and great music to get some encouragement so you can go back out to not live sacrificially for the least of these then to go back and do it the next Sunday. I teach Bible to 1st graders, fellowship with believers, am very active in taking the gospel to Africa and Asia. I just don’t do church the “American” way, which, I don’t see anywhere in the words of Jesus.

    @loneindividual; I had 20 kids here for breakfast with Santa and have 4 sons that I am raising, that is pretty real. However, I am in bed right now watching TV and on the computer because I got up before the crack of dawn to cook and clean. :)

    I am not saying that Catholics never go straight to Him.

  • [3] December 22, 2014 at 5:09pm

    I love my fellow believers: Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, etc….. I was just making a point that I do believe is true.

  • [3] December 22, 2014 at 5:06pm

    @snoop 1e; I have to agree with you on the doctrines of men. I don’t agree with them. I think the Protestant church is either misled or led by a bunch of demons. I say that very sadly for I was part of it from birth to 38. I have been gone about 4 years and have had to grieve at the time wasted listened to half truths and manipulations. It took 8 trips to Africa and being among the least of things to bring me to the Gospels and to just the words of Jesus to realize how incredibly misled that I was!

  • [-2] December 22, 2014 at 5:03pm

    I am not protestant. I am a follower of Christ. I had to “divorce” the American church because of it disgusting hoarding of wealth and manipulating members for economic gain. The Catholic Church is the 3rd largest property owner in the world and is sitting on a massive amount of wealth that would rival most governments. It also launders Mexican drug money. All the previous statements can be verified. People need to wake up and read Revelations and the Parable of the Mustard Seed. With that being said, I am not trying to throw the Catholic Church under the bus, the Protestant churches are just as bad.

    Oil and Gas puts a trillion per year into the economy and employees literally, millions. I know that my family will be spending MUCH less along with millions of other families that rely on oil and gas. So not sure manufacturing will be helped. We are on a spend NOTHING budget right now. Farmers that have to haul commodities will be helped. Trucking should be helped but those trucks may not be very full if millions like me aren’t buying anything other than food.

    I think he has this SO wrong and he thinks that he is SO right which makes me cautious about his interpretations/teachings of the Bible and helps me to remember that just because I think I am right doesn’t mean that I am!

    I agree with that. He is projecting his white privilege onto all white people. There are LOTS of poor white people. What pass does he give them?

  • [5] December 22, 2014 at 4:19pm

    The systematic injustice is the welfare state and lowered expectations. I taught in an inner city school and came to find out the reason the marriage rate is so low is because they lose welfare if they marry. The expectations for excellence are also lower academically for black children than they are for white children. I would have said after teaching in an inner city black school that the education was unfair because it was BAD but when I taught in a poor white district it was equally as bad, if not worse. The poor black parents were much more involved and supportive than the poor white parents. I am not sure what he is saying about my white privilege. If he is saying, I may have a harder time seeing the point of view of someone outside my race/culture, then maybe that is okay. But, that I am hanging onto my white privilege, NO. Plus he needs to listen to actual black people and what they say. Many that I have met that are doctors, lawyers, military, etc… grew up poor and they say the “system” worked for them but they also had fathers. Breakdown of the family via the welfare state is the root of the issue. Children need fathers. I think that he feels guilty at what he perceives as his advantages and is projecting that onto all of the rest of us. Black children without fathers need mentors and equal educational opportunities and white children, too, for that matter. In 20 years, the amount of white children without fathers will probably be the same as black children.

    Well, if oil stays this low, we can kiss a bunch of those jobs goodbye.

    The true betrayal is them thinking the Pope is their spiritual leader. Jesus died on the cross so you can go straight to Him. You don’t need the Pope and considering that the Catholic Church is sitting on a TRILLION dollars of wealth, I don’t think they know Jesus.

    Just tell her to say NO to the scrapbooking. I have spent hours and hours doing those scrapbooks and I honestly, don’t think my kids will even care when they grow up. They don’t want to look at them now or watch videos of the family. My oldest is 17 and the second is 15 and they could care less about those scrapbooks. ONE day, I may make one more for each kid that covers years and years of time. Someone told me to make my child an email account and when they do something sweet, your want to tell them something, or have a sweet pic, you email it to them. Then they will have all of it on their very own email.

    Choose well so you don’t marry someone who sits around playing video games and watching porn or a woman who gives hints that she will be cold and frigid. I would have never gone on one date with a guy that played video games more than RARELY. To me passed a certain age, it just screams LOSER. That being said, that is my opinion, so no need to respond in hatred if you are a big gamer. I just say: do something REAL. I think the soul of a man needs adventure, a battle, a hunt, something that they are not getting in the REAL world that they look for in the virtual world. I have four sons and a husband so I am not a complete idiot on the male species, even though, there is still SO much that I am learning. AND if I can give any marriage advice to other women reading this: men do need a lot of sex. I think it is the number one thing that keeps our marriage healthy and the lines of communication open. It is prevention against discord, temptations, frustration, etc. The second thing is to feed them and third, tell them you appreciate everything they do for you and the family, and, in response, you get a husband who is much more willing to listen and help out and be patient.

    I agree with you and don’t know why this is so offensive to so many women. Maybe they have men that don’t care about their needs. Maybe men need to work a little harder in the bedrooms to make their women want to be in the bed naked with them more often. I have friends who hate sex because their husbands are all about their own needs. Also, I think women are pretty simple. Tell her that you appreciate her, give her physical affection that is not sexual, take out the trash every once in awhile, say you look pretty, honey AND most women will want to be in that bed with their husbands….or anywhere…pre-kids showing up and the need to be more creative and hidden. :)
