trurl, I believe Moses being with Jesus at the Mount of Configuration shows us that you are correct. Enoch, and Elijah were the first to be raptured, but Moses died, and was buried. He was a flawed man like all of us, but he still resides with the Lord today, and is not "sleeping" until the Christ returns.
trurl, I humbly ask you if Christ was incorrect when he said that Lazarus was sleeping? Snowleopard is correct when stating that the bible is quite clear about the state of the dead. According to Ecclesiastes 9:5, "...the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten." As for rickfromthecape, is it not within God's power to have allowed Moses to die (he did disobey God and was told that he wouldn't see the promised land) and then resurrect him and bring him to heaven?

Since there is evidence that people of other religions see Mohammad, Buddha, etc., is it not more plausible that something happens at the moment of death (e.g. oxygen starvation) that causes feelings of euphoria and “visions”?

So then why do we have any laws at all? If passing a law can’t prevent someone from doing something then why legislate? Why have police? People are going to do what they’re going to do so why have a legal code of any kind? I mean, outlawing theft hasn’t stopped thieves, outlawing speeding hasn’t slowed people down, outlawing prostitution hasn’t stopped women from walking the streets, outlawing murder hasn’t stopped killing. Of course, the liberal looneys who make such arguments have no problem at all when it comes to a desire to outlaw guns. THAT will work they say. Ridiculous.

All they managed to do was prove that Memories Pizza denies service to no one as they said all along. Their stand had nothing to do with people being gay but about participating in a ceremony that violated their conscience and faith and these two morons just proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt. “Gay man purchases pizzas for him and his partner…says this proves pizza shop hates gays.” Film @ 11. I’m sure their guests appreciated two cold pizzas instead of a truly thought out, actually catered meal. That’s a special kind of stupid.

She’s right…having to have a permit to exercise your rights IS despicable!

Different take… watch very closely: Is it possible that the kid was just trying to toss the helmet away and swung it a little low and caught the other guy in the head? He did let go of it. I’m not 100% convinced it was intentional. Stupid and careless perhaps but maybe not intentional. For me it is not completely clear cut and before anybody goes crazy, I’m white.
Don't be stupid. He did not absolutely slam the helmet into the guy's head, but he hit him with it on purpose.
So, you would throw the helmet into the crowd rather than behind you? Player W running forward. Player B grabs helmet (not legal move in football), Helmet from player w momentum would continue forward when helmet was grabbed. No, this was done on purpose.
Can't you read 10 stitches deep bruise. I don't know what video you are watching
Are you freakin kidding me? Try watching it with your glasses on this time! Geesh!!!
I'll say it again.....then why did the ref throw a flag?????????????

It happened to me once and all I can say is if I had been 2-3 feet further along the freeway my passenger and I would have been dead. In my case it was not just a rock but a small boulder that hit the road a split second before I hit it @ 70 MPH. Totaled my vehicle. It was late at night so I never saw it coming off the dark overpass. Never caught the SOBs who did it. These morons should get a lot more jail time for what they did. They think it’s hilarious and then some poor soul like this lady gets permanently injured or someone gets killed. Dumba** losers, each and every one of them!
Someone was throwing jugs of milk out of a moving vehicle at cars one night while my husband was out driving by himself. He saw them hanging out the window of the truck and glanced back and saw the car behind him crash and he stopped. Thankfully the lady and her baby weren't hurt badly, but they both had nicks and cuts all over them from the safety glass. He stayed until the police arrived and was able to point out the truck as the idiots drove back by. One of the officers went after them and brought them back to the scene. Stupid teenagers thought it would pop like a balloon and just spray milk everywhere.
these idiots have no concept of how physics, mass and inertia works...this could have also caused a huge chain reaction pile up and many deaths....fencing might have prevented this but there's always someone evil or stupid enough to work around that sort of thing...and if you live in a simi-rural area with overpasses between ridges there's the possibility that a spooked deer might leap over the rails and crash into your path which has happened

Reminds me of an old Doonesbury cartoon where one character suspects the governor of Samoa of taking a bribe and feels compelled to report it. The governor asks: “Who’s the highest authority on this island?” … “You are, sir.” … “So, report it to me.” … “Sir, I suspect you of taking a bribe” … “I’ll look into it.”.
Cartoons abound in D.C.

I hope you meant VIRILE men, not VIRAL…cause viral men are just scary!
I stand corrected. I must admit my spelling is truly atrocious. Between that and the poor typing (sometimes my fingers betray me) I am sometimes truly embarrassed but sometimes I just have to laugh. .
I thought 'viral' was also a good word to describe these predators.
Lots of virile men pose no danger to women on their own and would, in fact, be protective if the situation arose.
Nonetheless it's every individual's responsibility to look after themselves to the extent they can.

How about you? What is your duty for solutions and actions? Why is it their responsibility? This is why we’re losing our country…because too many people say “THEY should do it” instead of saying “I should do it”. These pundits don’t work for the government, paid by us. They work for private companies. They have no obligation to you, me or anyone else to offer solutions or take any action whatsoever.

So how do you explain Luke 2:36 … “And there was a PROPHETESS, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years and had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage.” or Isaiah 8:3 … “So I approached the PROPHETESS, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. Then the LORD said to me, “Name him Maher-shalal-hash-baz” or Nehemiah 6:14 … “Remember, O my God, Tobiah and Sanballat according to these works of theirs, and also Noadiah the PROPHETESS and the rest of the prophets who were trying to frighten me.” or Exodus 15:20 … “Miriam the PROPHETESS, Aaron’s sister, took the timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dancing.” I don’t think the women in this article are genuine but there were certainly prophetesses in the scriptures, both Old and New Testament, and it took me about 60 seconds to find them. I recommend you “study to show yourself approved” (2 Timothy 2:15) before posting next time.

I would be considered “religious” by someone like yourself and I don’t believe a single word you wrote.

You send your kids to the “Gaia (the ancient Greek goddess of the earth, mother of the Titans) Democratic School” run by someone named Starri Hedges and you’re surprised and shocked by this? You’re as dumb as Starri is.

Sadly, demons believe in Christ more than many Christians do. “You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.” James 2:19

Two of the best books I’ve read on the subject are “Spiritual Warfare” by Dr. Karl Payne and “It’s Only A Demon” by Dr. David Appleby. I have spoken to Dr. Payne on the phone and have come to know Dr. Appleby personally. They know this subject from years and years of experience and ministry. Another good one is “They Shall Expel Demons” by Derek Prince. I hope this helps. The church has laid down it’s weaponry in this arena and we need more of Christ’s disciples to pick them up again and learn how to wield them. Too many Christians think they are standing in the gift shop instead of on the battlefield. God bless you.

The scripture names our three primary enemies…the world (external pressure to sin), the flesh (internal pressure to sin) and the devil (supernatural pressure to sin). I would say that only a person who never reads their Bible could come to the conclusion that there is no devil, demons and fallen angels. I have personally been through deliverance as has my wife and two of my kids (both grown). It has made an astounding difference in our lives and has made our walk with Christ much more real and close. So, I can testify, from VERY personal experience, that the devil and his kingdom are very real and he seeks to destroy as many lives as he can. Two of the best books on the subject are “Spiritual Warfare” by Dr. Karl Payne and “It’s Only A Demon” by Dr. David Appleby. I have spoken with Dr. Payne about the subject and am good friends with Dr. Appleby. He was the one who lead me and my family through deliverance. The devil is very, very real and has been very successful at wreaking havoc in the church because so many Christians today think they are standing in the gift shop instead of on the battlefield. If it’s all about the blessings and God just loving everybody, why are we instructed to PUT ON ARMOR? Why do Christians not get the part that God is also a HOLY and RIGHTEOUS JUDGE? When Jesus returns, it is to do BATTLE. The devil is at war with God and His church and so many constantly act like he isn’t even there. Jesus certainly didn’t think he was “silly” WHY DO YOU?
