#354145 The Post That Will Not Stand Long Here (Tithing)

Posted by ThePilgrim on 22 December 2013 - 07:14 PM

There comes a point in any discussion, arguement, or fight when it is time to back off and take it up another day when heads are cooler.

#354080 Will Mr. Obama Go Down In History As The Worst

Posted by ThePilgrim on 22 December 2013 - 11:11 AM

 I never finished highschool and everything I learned of history I learned by first checking books out of libraries and then in better times being able to buy books.  I have always loved history and by the time I was 40 had learned to love the Bible - the Holy Spirit taught me that.  God blessed me in that I did not go to college until I was 50 years old.  I had to take American history as one of the required classes and I aced it but (praise god) I had loved and studied history before I took the class.  What a farce that was.  I am not certain it is a good idea for young people to be taught history in our education system as it is now.  The books used and the teachers involved twist it into something a true student of history would never recognize. 

 

Though I studied history for 20 years before I believed the Bible it would be best if young people learned the Bible first.  An understanding of history, as taught by the Holy Spirit, will enable the student to diferentiate the wheat from the chaff in history books.  If the the people in a history book don't fit God's view of the human condition it ain't true.  If the events  in a history book don't fit God's view of the way things happened it ain't true.

 

Excuse my use of the word ain't . . . . I never finished highschool english. :binkybaby:

#354073 Will Mr. Obama Go Down In History As The Worst

Posted by ThePilgrim on 22 December 2013 - 09:57 AM

Having read a lot of and understanding history is why I say what I do.  All history books are subject to revision over time that is a fact.  All history is written by human beings and is subject to their state of mind and points of view at the time of it's writing.  As a matter of fact the reading of history books is also subject to man's whim.  What history books do people choose to read or not read for instance.  One can only understand the flow of history the ups and downs of empires and civilizations and the general causes of such.  One cannot know from history the minutae of events and the absolute truth about the persons involved.

 

One can know for instance that a people or a nation will become great at one time and collapse at another into unimportance - like the great empires in the past and knowing this can extrapolate that this will happen to the American empire.  One can see that great empires tend to become arrogant, self important, filled with hubris, and over extend themselves, leading to their final collapse.  It is inevitable, it always happens.

 

Most certainly one can learn from history, especialy when the history is written in the Holy Bible.  Then we know it is true and not just some vain imaginings of some opinionated historian.

#354065 Will Mr. Obama Go Down In History As The Worst

Posted by ThePilgrim on 22 December 2013 - 08:56 AM

I beg to differ with you guys.  History written in the next few years is not really history.  Real history is to be written hundreds or thousands of years after an event has passed.  Obama will be a short paragraph in a short chapter on the short history of a short lived empire called the United States of America.  Obama and all other would be important persons are only tiny blips in the great scheme of things.  It is you and I the so-called little people that lift these people up to be something they are not, "important".  It's to bad that we get so excited that we we lift them up on pedestals of fame or infamy because they have not really earned it.

 

The really important thing is to be written in The Lambs Book of Life not in a history book which will perish in a great book burning one day.

#353884 Duck Dynasty Patriarch Suspended

Posted by ThePilgrim on 20 December 2013 - 12:47 PM

I may be wrong (frequently am) but I don't think it was a publicity stunt.  I think the big shots at the network made a huge blunder by misjudging a group of people.  And the fact that they had to eat crow does my heart good.

This video here sounds a lot like a testimony.  You may judge the "reality" of it.  Is it just a part of the reality show or is it real?  You be the judge if you want too . . . . I'll just take it for what it is and let God be the judge.

#353266 Way Of Life - Jerry Falwell, Should We Warn Or Praise?

Posted by ThePilgrim on 12 December 2013 - 11:49 PM

2Pe 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

 
2Ti 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
 
Yes, they get entangled in the affairs of this world, life, & it chokes out the Word of God.
 
Mt 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
 
Mr 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
 
And that happened to the late Brother Jerry Falwell as it has to many others. Oh they gain a large following & makes tons of money yet it comes to them through compromise with many praising them, & also jealous wanting to rub us against them with hopes some of it will rub off on them.
 
If the man has stayed at the same belief of his early years he would not have been loved so much by the world along with the conservative worldly politicians.
 
How many Baptist believing politicians have you ever seen that used their platform to stand on God’s truth, Ephesians 2:8-9, the one & only way a person can be saved?
 
I recall hearing Mr. Reagan stand on his platform in front of religious people saying the answer to our every problem is Jesus towards the end of his speech, yet I never heard him say how to have Jesus as your Savior truly promoting souls to be saved. If he had most of the large crowd He was standing in front of would have hated him as they did Jesus."

Posted by ThePilgrim on 10 December 2013 - 01:14 PM

I am sure he doesn't know it but this man isa  self righteous, unread, tool of the devil.  Preaching hate is not preaching the gospel.

What words of grace would this man have given to the woman taken in adultry, what words for the samaritan woman at the well.

For those of you who don't understand who Mandela was and what he represented because you believe the image that has been put forth by the media over the years.  Here is a long piece but a great history of Mandela. Most of us want to believe and see the good in a man . . . .   we long so to see good that we will overlook a little evil sometimes.  But such men as Mandela are not just the little malefactor that can make a little mistake while they attempt to do a great good, but they do great evil to gain personally.  They are psycopaths and sociopaths and deserve no adulation from their fellow man who are destroyed by their evil acts.  That's the end of my rant.  Here is the article:

#352312 The Cross As Jewelry, Decoration

The name of God has been used in vain for forever.  Using the cross in such a manner is to be expected.

It's human nature to believe the other guy has it  easier than I do.  It's that nature we are to fight against.

Need the power of God to win this one.

These two have the same crooked smile.  Is that because of their twisted theology?  :scratchchin:
