  1. Oddly, he later did a video saying that mathematics prove the existence of God. Haven't watched that one yet. Accepting the truth of God, and trusting Him as Saviour are two different things.
  2. I believe this is the video on creation being an energy free event:
  3. Yes I remember, I think Micio Kaku talking about how a Big Bang is a zero-energy event, that it takes no energy for something to expand at multiple-times the speed of light and expand to create the univers-zero energy, of course, trying to overcome the laws of Thermodynamics. The theoretical physicists sometimes crack me up, if they didn't take themelves so seriously, and people didn't take them as experts in actual physics. They just literally make stuff up and call it science. And of course, since science considers a theory the same as a fact, (why they don't just call it is fact is beyond me), well, that just gives them more reputability.
  4. What I thought was amazing was how the scientists and biologists can explain, more or less,the mechanics of how everything happens, but can't begin to say WHY or HOW they do, how there can be such perfect...synchronicity, for lack of a better work, how everything can know exactly it's job, how everything can be so completely ordered and in place, like a city, with power plants, (the mitochondria) and a capitol (the nucleus), roadways (tubules), Factories to process DNA to usable proteins (Ribosomes), and so forth. If everything doesn't do exactly it's job, each time, in the exact place and way, the cell will cease to function, and mitosis can't occur. As well, no part of a cell exists anywhere outside the cell-so where did they come from to assemble into a cell? How could they assemble and automatically know how to perform each precise function immediately and perfectly from the very first cell? That would be like hiring 1,000 or so people off the street, throwing them into a car factory with no training or knowledge of what they were supposed to do, yet each one goes automatically to the station they need to be at and begin to do their job exactly as needed, and immediately begin to produce perfect cars. And honestly, THAT would be easier than a cell being evolved, because at least the humans have brains and can think-the parts of a cell have their jobs pre-programmed to do exactly what they must.
  5. Darwin once said that if anything was found that could not possibly be formed by gradual change and evolving, it would destroy the theory of evolution. Of course, that's not a direct quote, but the spirit of it is there. Well, in Darwin's time, the cell was a locked box, a black box that could be discerned, but not clearly viewed, so it was considered a simple structure; the term, "Simple, singe-celled organism' came to refer to the least complicated form of life known. Of course, since then, the cell has been quite well investigated, and what has been found is not only NOT simple, it is amazingly complex and organized, with multiple activities occurring simultaneously and continually, and each activity works with the others to produce energy, and more cells.It is so organized and precise, that it is irreducibly complex, and it defies the possibility of evolution. ' I have attached an amazing video if you have never seen it, called the Inner Life of the Cell. Its about 7 minutes long, but it is an amazing piece of animation showing what takes place in the cell all the time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzcTgrxMzZk&t=197s
  6. Where is that at?
  7. Sunrise in Herlong, taken looking Southeast from my road, while heading to work one morning recently. The water there is the very end of the recently re-formed Honey Lake, a shallow lake that has been empty for the last ten years, and filled up this last wet winter. Our property sits just at the edge of it.
  8. Another fact, that can be clearly discovered, is that as early as the middle to the end of the second century, before there was a Catholic church to canonize anything, the entire New testament scriptures, all the books, without an Apocrypha, had already been translated in full into Syricak and Itala, and was being translated into other languages. This tells us that it was complete and recgnized as such well before the Nicea council did anything. As far as i can tell, the point of what the Council did, was to clear up the confusion being made by the many so-called 'Gnostic' books that were popping up in the 2nd and 3rd centuries, that claimed authorship by the Apostles and those close to them-I believe the point of the coincil was to determine, through all these book, which were truly scripture and which were false. All they ultimately did was to recognize the scriptures already being used, as the canon of scripture. Everyone else alr4eady had-the waters were just muddied by the false writings claiming authenticity.
  9. It seems to me that the OT and the NT have a similarity in proper giving, as the church(es) today are to practice it: In the OT, we have many examples, all the way back from the Israelites in the wilderness at Sinai, and through the time of the kings, that when there was a need to be met, usually having to do with the tabernacle/temple, a freewill offering was taken up. When the tabernacle was first being built, the call was put out to everyone to give as the were led to the needs to build the tabernacle. There was no specific requirement-they gave as much or as little as they chose. Later, we see a few times mentioned that when there were needed repairs for the temple, a box was put out and money was given, again, as a free will offering, to be used for the needs of rebuilding, or repairing of the temple. And people gave as they chose, as they saw the importance. This seems to be the kind of giving that is given to the churches-we see that people gave as they were prospered, according to the importance they saw of the project. No amount was required, and in fact, no one was required TO give-they gave in amounts as they were able and as they loved he Lord: where their hearts were, that was where their treasure went. And since much of the giving today in a church is to the maintaining of the facilities, much like the temple, so the giving is freewill, as it was then.
  10. The actual terminology means to receive a homestead grant for land, which exempts it from beinf seized or taxed-no one really owns property, because everything is bought with federal reserve notes, basically IOU's, money we borrow from the federal government, which is in turn borrowed from the federal reserve. So none of it is ours, ergo, nothing we buy is ours-our cars, land, houses, nothing. This is why it is legal to be taxed each year for it-if we truly OWNED it, they could not tax it, could not sieze it, nothing. That is the bottom line of homesteading: it is the desire to truly be free from the government having the legal right to step in a take what is yours, should they want it. Now, if you buy property, land or a car or such, with gold or silver, which are real money, then YOU own it, lock stock and barrel and the government cannot touch it.
  11. I grew up in churches that taught the 10% tithe as biblical for a believer, but it wasn't until my father wrote a dissertation on it for college and later let me read it, that I began to understand it wasn't the case. The problems we face when pushing this view, is that A: too often if believers don't feel almost forced to give, they won't. B: Too often, many believe that teaching the tithe is not for believers today, that means we are teaching people NOT to give. When I began to teach this in my church, with the full of scripture behind me, immediately i was told "If people aren't taught to tithe, they won't give!" Sadly, that is borne out to be quite true. But I won't perpetuate something I find to be untrue, for the sake of getting people to give: if they cannot be a cheerful giver, and love the Lord and the wor enough to give freely, then I must place that into God's hands.
  12. When people tell me churches are full of hypocrites, I tell them, They sure are! And thet's where they belong, in church, hopefully to learn to stop being hypocrites!
  13. John, John, John, you are a sad and confused fellow. If you cannot see the difference between the Catholic emasculated, effeminate 'Jesus' )who is perpetually hanging on a cross, a Jesus that cannot save outside of the Catholic organization and the sacraments, a Jesus who is daily placed in an idolatrous monstrance and displayed as a cookie for all to bow to, a Jesus who is only a co-redeemer with his mother), and the Jesus of the Bible, (who is alone able to save, who is received by grace through faith alone, outside of ANY church, who would not even call His earthly mother, "Mother", but called her 'Woman', to show she held no authority over Him, the Jesus who made one sacrifice for sin for all time and is sitting at the right hand of the father in Glory, Himself alone the only Advocate and Redeemer, who went to the cross one, and is risen and in Glory, no longer on the cross), then you are truly not a saved man, or at least has not repented of your rebellion against the Lord's command to mark those who cause divisions contrary to the true doctrines of the Bible, and avoid them. John, you need to get right with God, get out of the ungoldy Catholic insitution, get out from the Laodicean-style non-judgmental evangelical church and seek a church that will preach the truth of the Bible.
  14. Regardless of what YOU believe, their table is a table of devils. Their Jesus is that little wafer-and that is not the Jesus of the Bible. What part of that do you not understand? How long will you remain willingly blind and ignorant of the truth that is so clearly laid before you? To partake of the Lord's Supper unworthily is to be gullty of the body and the blood of the Lord, and this, sir, is taking it unworthily. If you believe the Catholic 'Jesus" is the Jesus of the Bible, even as they uphold a wafer in a monstrance and declare it to the Lord Jesus Christ, you, sir, are ignorant as to who Jesus really is. "Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified..." (Lev 10:3). God is to be approached and worshipped in a sanctified manner: the worship of the RCC is false worship, idolatry, paganism, and a true Christian will be repelled by it. You need to repent of your rebellion against God, "for I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity."
  15. Welcome BabeInChrist! Ask you anything? Okay, ummm, what is the circumfrence of the sun? How much mass does it lose to fission each hour? Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? Or Waldo, for that matter? Okay, I'm done. welcome to the board, may your stay be enjoyable, edifying and a little weird.
