    ThePilgrim got a reaction from Invicta in 51st State?   
    Interesting.  I guess the writers tongue was so far in his cheek that nobody could see it was written tongue in cheek.

    Those that don't learn history are doomed to live through it's horror again.  What ever happened to the Christian churches in Asia and Africa?

    Russia blocks world’s biggest porn site for endangering children
    MOSCOW, September 15, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Russia blocked access to Pornhub – the world’s biggest porn site – as well as 10 other pornography sites this week after a court ruled the sites were breaking the law.
    The Russian government’s communication watchdog Roskomnadzor announced Monday that a court in the city of Krasnodar ruled that the websites had violated federal laws protecting children from “harmful information.”
    The court also ruled the adult sites illegally produced and distributed pornography, although it’s uncertain what precise content brought about the ban, according to The Verge.
    Pornhub has acknowledged the ban. “We can confirm that Roskomnadzor has blacklisted Pornhub in Russia and we are currently investigating and considering available means to reinstate our website in Russia,” a spokesperson stated in an email.
    Roskomnadzor’s statement warned that distributing illegal pornography online carries a prison sentence of two to six years on conviction.

    ThePilgrim reacted to John81 in Inside the Syrian War   
    Americans have been fed the lie of "equality" as defined by liberal humanists which has led most to ignore reality, history and their own instincts. The strongest nations are those which are most homogeneous, not the most diverse. Commonality binds, diversity, as the word suggests, brings division.
    American leaders are intent upon turning America into an increasingly diverse nation which will, as history proves, bring about extreme power plays between the competing diverse peoples and will likely end in brutal civil war and the downfall of America.
    Russia has been attempting to join with America in the fight against Islamic terrorism for years. Ignored is how quickly Russia sent condolences and offers of any assistance of any kind immediately after 9-11, or the memorial gift they sent America. Ignored is the fact Russia has continually sent America information regarding terrorists, including warnings against the brothers who became the Boston marathon bombers, but virtually Russian intelligence is dismissed simply because it comes from Russia. Russia has offered assistance in dealing with ISIS since they first became a thorn in our side.
    American leadership has failed to learn the lessons of removing strong leaders from Muslim countries. Look at the vast mess created by the removal of Sadaam and the problems in Libya since Gadafi was taken out. They seem to forget Assad willingly helped America by allowing use of Syrian air bases in their previous wars there.
    Muslims and radical Islam is poised to dominate not only the Middle East, but Western Europe within the next 20 years. This war will extend to Canada and America as well.
    While the Christian West commits suicide, the Islamic hoards are crashing the gates to exterminate both Christians and Westerners.

    ThePilgrim reacted to John81 in Titus   
    Too many pastors/churches today proclaim with an air of "holiness" they don't care about doctrine, they just want to follow Jesus. Sure, sounds good to the unlearned and biblically illiterate masses, but it's not in accord with Scripture or actually following Jesus!
    How can folks follow Jesus if they don't know what Jesus said, don't know what God expects of His people, don't know the foundations of the faith, all of which is DOCTRINE.
    Forget carrying a Bible with you to church, never mind even having one at home (no time to read that anyway), just listen to a pleasant sermon at church, maybe catch a pleasant radio or TV preacher, play some Hillsong music, toss a little prayer in here and there, say "amen" once in awhile, and there ya go, following Jesus with no need to bother with that pesky doctrine.
    Sounds more like a huge water slide they are on with no sure idea of where it leads or ends. In other words: DANGER!

    ThePilgrim reacted to Invicta in Ask questions later   
    Must have been a different report.  It makes no difference. An isolated incidence doesn't warrant an armed police force.  I have come across armed police several times and their attitude is not pleasant.  Regularly in the City of London when the police escorted the bullion vans from the Bank of England, and once when the then PM Blair travelled though our town to visit our offshore wind farms.  I wouldn't want regular police to act like that. Police should be our friends, not our enemies as they seem to be in the US.

    ThePilgrim reacted to Invicta in Comment On Current Debate   
    Agreed, Ian,
     
    Today we may say that there is a flood of immigrants pouring into Europe.  The word always had a literal and a figurative meaning.  Cameron said recently that there was a swarm of immigrants coming in.  He was attacked because they said he was calling them insects.  Nonsense.  He was using the term figuratively.  We often use words in such a way without realising it.  Scripture also uses words in this way.

    ThePilgrim reacted to John81 in Proof of the shrinking American brain.   
    His outspokenness is the main reason the Republican leadership, media and others want him silenced.
    The head of the RNC told Trump he needed to stop talking about certain things, change his tone, and follow the guidance of the Republican leadership or the RNC would work against him.
    This is also the reason the Republican leadership and many Republican politicians in DC don't like Cruz and want to see him done away with; because of his more open and honest speaking. Similar is true also of Rand Paul but in regard to other matters.
    Ever since Ronald Reagan one the nomination in 1980 against the wishes of the Republican leadership, the RNC has worked very hard to make sure only candidates on their approved list might have a real shot at the nomination and presidency. They have done this to the point of willingly sacrificing any real chance to win the presidency just to have their way.
    Honesty and truth, and men who can't be bought off, are not wanted by the RNC, DNC, or the media.

    ThePilgrim reacted to Ukulelemike in Ready for Prison?   
    I agree in most, however, I know of many who don't go to 'formal' soulwinning, yet who daily in their life are a witness of Christ. As well, 'soul-winning' as it has become, as a formal, got out on such and such a night and knock doors, doesn't work everywhere in the same manner.
     many people in small towns, especially those who have been there a long time, take time before they trust you for anything, particularly for advice on their souls. So time must be taken to develop relationships, while, clearly at the same time, giving testimony of Christ and salvation. Also, in small towns like mine, if we had a weekly program, each month we'd be starting over in the same places, and soon becoming tiresome to them, as we'd be showing up all the time. So we hit them once, go through the entire town, and maybe 6 months or a year later, do it again, while in the meantime we are around and known-speaking at events, or just present, talking, being a friend, always presenting Christ in their eyes, so they can know Him and us.

    Brother I agree , but it was our liberal mayor in his first news interview pledging to remove the flag stating it represented the hate of the young man whom had murdered those folks all the others jumped on board ,Satan put the hate in his heart not a flag, and he's using these folks to promote more hate within others hearts pulling them away from the Truth, Jesus Christ our Lord.

    "But the church is also registered as a for-profit business and city officials said that means the owners must comply with state and federal regulations."
    Why is this church also registered as a for-profit business?
    The so-called "civil rights" laws long ago took away our rights to free association, freedom to run a business as the owner wishes, freedom to buy, sell or rent as we please. The entire "equality" movement has been all about destroying liberty, especially personal liberty, and forcing people to accept and help promote or support that which they don't want to. People allowed this to happen because they chose to vote and operate according to emotion rather than reason. 
    A more recent example is the mass killing in the church by one lone nut who admittedly didn't have a solid understanding of his own beliefs. Since Sharpton and the other race hustlers couldn't get the good folks of that church to go along with riots and protests, they decided to attack the Confederate battle flag. Based solely upon emotion people flocked to this idea and others either gave tacit approval or decided it wasn't any of their business. No matter the flag had nothing to do with the crime or the fact the flag being removed won't prevent another crime. Yet look all around and we see removing that flag isn't enough for them. Now they want to have all things Confederate erased from public, and not only that they are demanding statues of Washington, Jefferson, Will Rogers and many others be removed. They are going so far as to dig up the graves of General Forrest and his wife so they can move their "offending" grave site out of actual sight.
    Sounds as if the communist Soviets won the cold war and have occupied America! But wait, it's Americans forcing this cultural and historical cleansing. Something Americans once said they abhorred. Just like happened in Nazi Germany, communist Russia and the Soviet Bloc, communist China, communist North Korea and elsewhere, most people either go along with it or remain silent (especially if the particular target doesn't seem that important to them) until eventually they get around to targeting things which directly effect them but by then it's too late to stop the train of eradication.
    Whereas many churches across America once preached against government interference in churches in Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc nations, China, North Korea, and such, now a growing number of churches are declaring churches must allow the government to dictate what the churches can and can't do. Others silently cower on the sidelines hoping not to be noticed.
    Sure, give in a little here and there in the 1800s, give a little more in the early 20th century, go much further in the last half of the 20th century, now give even more at the beginning of the 21st century, and we see they are still not pleased. They won't be pleased until virtually our entire history and heritage is erased and they have transformed America into a socialist nation dominated by Third Worlders and filled with false religionists.
    Live for Christ now because tomorrow you may be in prison or facing worse.

    ThePilgrim reacted to John81 in The 7th Shemita is here   
    Notice the conclusion of the matter from Jesus:
    Mt 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
    Mt 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    Mt 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
    Mt 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be................
    Everything will be going on as if all things are the same old, same old. We've been warned the end is coming, just as the people of Noah's day were warned, but people didn't see any signs of such being true so they went about their lives as usual. The same today, people have been warned for about 2,000 years now the end is coming but with no signs this is actually upon us the people pay no heed and go about life as usual.
    When Christ returns people will be surprised. Even the faithful won't know His return is upon us, but the faithful will be living with the expectation Christ could return at any moment so we need to be about His business now.
    Scripture is filled with more than enough to make it clear that Christ is returning and He could return at any moment. No sign or announcement from heaven is needed. We've been warned. Followers of Christ are to share that warning.
    Those looking for signs often eventually become disappointed and backslide or fall away. So many "signs" throughout the centuries have been pointed to and yet Christ did not return, the end of the world didn't happen, many peoples hearts grew disillusioned and disheartened from the "signs" not proving true. The Black Death, WWI, Nazi Germany, nuclear bombs, Soviet Union, EU, and more weather related happenings than can be numbered along with a host of other events have all been pointed to as the sign or signs Christ would be here any day now.
    Many folks got caught up in all the Cold War "signs" which were followed by the Left Behind craze and now after hearing look here, now look here, no, now look at this, and yet none of the predictions come true, the signs come and go, many hearts have waxed cold. This is one of the reasons for the growing trend of Christians moving away from the pre-trib rapture view to other views.
    It's like the boy crying wolf over and over again so that many people today have hearts hardened not only to the sign pointers messages, but often even to the true Word of God being proclaimed about the return of Christ and coming end.

    Too many Christians, especially secular, weak, immature and those unwittingly in such churches, as well as many others, aren't satisfied with what Scripture actually says. Rather than believe and live as Christ commands, they constantly look for the sensational, something new, something exciting, something popular. This keeps the hucksters, false preachers, mystics and others in good business.
    These people latch on to the latest "new and exciting revelation", buy all they can on the topic while authors and book sellers rush to provide more for them to buy. Then when the "new and exciting" starts wearing off there is something else to take its place.
    A few off the top of my head are: the Promise Keepers movement, Left Behind series, Purpose Driven Life, Prayer of Jabez, Four Blood Moons. There have been many more and will continue to be many more until Christ returns.

    ThePilgrim got a reaction from Covenanter in THE NIGHT WATCHMAN   
    THE NIGHT WATCHMAN
    Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.
    Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.”
    So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.
    Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”
    So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.
    Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?”
    So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One was to do the studies and one was to write the reports.
    Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?”
    So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer then hired two people.
    Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?”
    So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.
    Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back.”
    So they laid-off the night watchman.
    NOW slowly, let it sink in.
    Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter. Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?
    Anybody?
    No?
    Didn’t think so!
    Bottom line is, we’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency, the reason for which very few people who read this can remember!
    Ready?
    It was very simple… and at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.
    The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977, TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.
    AND NOW IT’S 2015 — 38 YEARS LATER — AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS “NECESSARY” DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR. IT HAS 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES; AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!
    38 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.
    NOW, WE HAVE TURNED OVER THE BANKING SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND THE AUTO INDUSTRY TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT?

    ThePilgrim got a reaction from No Nicolaitans in Administratium   
    The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by 
    physicists. The element, tentatively named Administratium, has no 
    protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. 
    However it does have:
               1 neutron.
             125 assistant neutrons
              75 vice-neutrons
             111 assistant vice-neutrons
    This gives it an atomic mass of 312. The 312 particles are held 
    together  by a force that involves the continuous exchange of 
    meson-like particles called morons.
    Since it has no electrons, Administratium is inert. However, it 
    can be detected chemically as it impedes every action with which 
    it comes in contact. According to the discoverers, a minute amount 
    of Administratium causes one reaction to take four days to complete 
    when it would have normally occurred in less than one second.
    Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, 
    at which time it does not actually decay but instead undergoes a 
    reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons, and 
    assistant vice-neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown 
    that atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization. 
    Research at other laboratories indicates that Administratium occurs 
    naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points 
    such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities, 
    and can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best 
    maintained buildings.
    Scientists point out that Administratium is known to be toxic at any 
    level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction 
    where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine 
    how Administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, 
    but results to date are not promising.
