Just curious if this rich business man ever used his immigrant status to HELP his so called opportunity. I know of a man that came to the USA from Vietnam just after the war. He didnt have to pay any taxes on property or his company for 7 years and was guaranteed a loan to start his own company.
All that because he was an immigrant. Yea opportunity is great for them.
Great point. Exactly how much help did his family get when they first arrived here?

@freun that was the teaching in the past. But this new pope changed that. He wants to bring all churches back under the RCC umbrella by 2017. That’s the plan and that’s why he changed the teaching.

Why is it that if a new revelation appears in the Bible people say its not true, because its new? Im not saying the rapture is a new teaching but some here clearly think that it is, but my point is so what.
How many of you are protestant? Because salvation through faith alone was once considered a NEW teaching and it got millions killed. Now the Catholic church agrees with that teaching.
So just because a teaching might be new, does not mean its incorrect.
Just my 2 cents.
BTW if you study the jewish wedding it is hard not to see the rapture as being accurate.
But I also know that its not worth arguing over especially with fellow Christians. If there is a rapture we will go together belief in it or not. As one is saved by faith in Jesus, not by believing in a specific teaching on prophecy.
If there is not a rapture, we will need to stick together more than ever.
Dont forget Luke 9:49-50

Animals do not commit homosexual acts; that is a ridiculous statement. First there is no sexual attraction between same sex animals, as most animals copulate based on scent/smell or some other act to inform the opposite sex animal it’s time to make offspring.
Animals that commit sexual acts with other animals of the same sex do so for many reason, of which we don’t understand them all yet. But its surely not for love, as animals don’t have the capacity to love each other.
I also thought that gay marriage wasn’t about sex, but love.
Again no animals have spoken to us and confirmed that they are in love. In fact animals show affection or what we humans call affection out of survival. They take care of the young to ensure the survival of the species that is purely an internal drive or instinct.
Finally trying to compare yourself as a homosexual to an animal to justify your actions is an extremely weak argument. Many animals eat their young, their own feces, and a list of other things that most humans would find offensive.
There is no justifiable argument for gay sex. It’s not how the human anatomy works, that’s just science.
Why do homosexual scream about how unscientific the Bible is, and then deny science when it comes to their lifestyle?

Exactly what I asked when I read the news. How does an election just STOP because one guy backs out? This is a total setup!!

Lol if you guys don’t think your IP can’t be tracked back to your phone or work machine your nuts. Not to mention all those opinions you post build a profile of who you are and at the very least how you think. Unless your a troll. Put a name to a backed up file of opinions and post and it’s exactly like FB. Sure you don’t have a picture but who cares. If you fear social media because of government then you can’t post on sites like this anymore than FB.

Berkman should attack the mayors kids publicly like she did his. Oh wait her NORMAL life style prevents her from having kids!!
But we must stick together. Black white brown red yellow, if you see a black man taking it to a white perv going in a woman’s restroom and you are white back up the black man. Same for a white man taking it to a black perv.
As long as they keep the races fighting they have control.

Freun it was a nice conversation. But I don’t think we will find a common ground on this one. Thanks for the information. I always say in the end on conversations about faith and disagreement that as long as we are both open to Gods word he will instruct us. As he desires all to be saved. God bless see you on the other side!!!

Also if you look at verse 6:63 he clearly points out the flesh profiteth nothing. In the KJ it references that verse to 2 corn 3:6 where it points out that the apostles were ministers of the spirit and there clearly states that the spirit gives life.
If it were Jesus flesh that provides the life the apostles would not teach it is the spirit.
Now look at john 7:37-39 where if you drink you have rivers of living water coming out of you. But look at verse 38 it then says he that believe in reference to the drinking will be filled with the Holy Spirit. Then immediately in verse 39 it explains that this he spake of the spirit, those that believe ( again that word believe is used) should receive the Holy Spirit.

Mentioning it a few times in john is not the same as how belief is stressed over and over through out the books of the New Testament and old. I spent 9 yrs in catholic school I understand the teachings.
If you continue reading john 6:63 you see that he is talking about the spirit not actual flesh.
Remember how he speaks of eating and how it does not defile a man? But what come out of the heart. Well if what you eat can not defile you spiritually then how can what you physically eat make you holy?
Now look at john 6:29,40,47 all verses that say belief on Jesus leads to salvation.
In fact 6:40 says that is the will of the father, belief on him.
We are to spiritually consume Jesus the Word.
If we are to physically eat him then we could eat our Bibles right? In the begging was the Word and the Word Was with God and the Word WAS God. So if Jesus is the word why not eat Bibles.
That’s silly but you can spiritually consume the Word daily.

Yes I understand the seal of salvation just haven’t ever heard it relation to priesthood.
All mention cannibalism as a horrible curse and inhuman act of desperation!!
Please tell me how that changes in the New Testament? Its plain in the Old Testament that we are NOT to eat human flesh.
The Passover lamb saved them because the blood on the door post, not the eating of the lamb. Its very clear that without the blood marking, the curse would affect the home of even the Jews. It does not say that if they didn’t eat the lamb they would die.
If Jesus wanted to have them drink his blood, then why didnt he offer it up? Why not offer the woman at the well a slit wrist? He was God if he can make gallons of water into wine and a few small fish feed 5000 people, clearly he could have created more blood and let everyone partake in a drink.
That teaching is a Roman Catholic teaching to control people. If you dont go to their church and abide by their rules, you dont get the magical bread and wine and therefore perish. Forget that Jesus himeself said believe and thou shalt be saved and countless times other said the same.
In fact even when he told the young man that he must be born again, he never mentioned eating his flesh or drinking his blood. If it was that important to salvation he would have said it over and over when any mention of salvation came up.
Just like he did with belief and faith!!

Freunlaven – can you give a biblical reference as to a indelible mark being placed on a soul at baptism or any other time? I am curious as to where that is in the Bible.
 October 4, 2015 at 8:39pm
Jesus is Melchizedek
Hebrews 7 about Melchizedek – He is without father or mother or genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God he continues a priest forever.
I dont know of any other man that would fit that description or hold the titles but Jesus.
Melchizedek means – King of Righteousness
King of Salem – Shalom comes from salem which means peace, so he is the “King of Peace”
The Melchizedek priesthood is not the Roman Catholics, because they clearly were not in existence forever. Melchizedek was mention nearly 400 yrs before the Leviticus priesthood was established.
To bad this article didnt cover the larger transformers in more detail. From what I hear we dont even produce them in America anymore and we have to import them from China with a 6 month lead time. Now whats going to happen when they take out substations and there are no large scale transformers to replace them and we are on a 6 month wait. LOL Americans cant eat dinner and talk without a cell phone in their faces, wait until power is out for a few months.

Here is some more information –
Acts 10:43-45 – To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Notice that NO HANDS were laid on these gentiles that received the Holy Spirit. Did they lay hands and people receive the Holy Spirit yes sometimes they did, did they have to? Apparently not.
Also notice how one receives the forgiveness of sin!!! “Whosoever believe on him
“, that came from Peters mouth your first Pope, and yet the RCC still teaches one must confess to a priest.
I think Ill go with the example of people believing having sins forgiven and getting the Holy Spirit in one shabang, none of this having to have hands laid on you and confessing to a priest, all tools the RCC has used to control men throughout history.
If you dont think so, ask yourself why they murdered thousands to keep the Bible OUT of the hands of the rest of the world.

Freunlaven – Do you believe that the Roman Catholic Church was the first and original church?
