#362577 Looking For Opinions On Viewing Christian Movies At The Theatre

Posted by ThePilgrim on 21 February 2014 - 07:29 AM

Our LORD used both physical and vocal violence against the money changers and the Jewish leaders in the temple. Or do you think he just walked in and spoke weakly to them? Is our LORD coming back with a coffee and some flowers for a nice noonday "Freska" chat with the enemies who love this world or is he coming back to rule it with a rod of iron?

 

A lot of Baptists need to get off the drugs of "prosperity" and "Sinless salvation" preaching and get back in the war for men's souls. The days of being 100% meek and weak with this world are over. We need more Men on the streets than boys.

I must ask, is it the job of Christians today to get out the word of God, the gospel, or to rule the world with a rod of iron?  Are we to harangue and brow beat people like a demagogue or are we to present the gospel and let the Holy Spirit be the ultimate pedagogue?  I don't believe God has turned all of His means of instruction and chastisement over to His children.  Religious organizations such as the Roman church may have the idea that He has, but they are mistaken.  There is a dominion theology out there which teaches that the church will change the world but they are in error also.  Only God is going to truely change a man's heart . . . . not you or I. 

 

God bless,

Hollywood (witches wood) is a filthy factory of God-hating occultists and dirty lucre, stay away from it. Christians should have nothing to do with that filth factory.

Pastor Jason Cooley of Northfield Minn. Christians should have nothing to do with filthy Hollywood. Pray for only one thing, that the whole filthy area of Los Angeles gets blown to hell where it belongs.

I accidently pressed the like button on your post and couldn't figure out how to remove it.  On second thought maybe it was a good thing as the angry and vitriolic manner you express yourself sounds likee me twenty years ago.  However in the ensuing years I have learned to cool down my rhetoric a little and try not to fight everybody and everything but attempt to change them.  Attempting to change peoples opinions by using physical or verbal violence only inhibited there ability to hear me and to respond in the way I would like.  That is I could never change them in a positive direction, only drive them further from the truth I was attempting to deliver to them.   

 

What you are attempting do is deliver the truth to a lost and dying world.  Deliver it in a fashin that they can hear it and not drive them to cover their ears in self defence.

 

My only desire in this is to help, not offend.

 

God bless,

#362311 Do You Believe There Was Not Rain Before The Flood Of Noah?

Posted by ThePilgrim on 19 February 2014 - 05:28 PM

Well maybe I should not be writing this because it is just my conjecture, but I will anyway.

The one thing which makes me think the climate wa radically different after the flood than before is the rapid deteriation in the life span of man.  That is shown in the bible by the genealogies. 

Why?  Well my guess is that the loss of cloud cover and the increase in solar radiations reaching the surface would have caused changes in both animal and plant life.  I could be wrong, but hey, you asked me.

Right or wrong it does not effect my salvation or my life one way or the other except maybe some will call me a nut.  But then in some peoples eyes I am a nut for reading the bible in the first place. :icon_smile:

 

So anyway, for there to be a loss of cloud cover there had to be a lot more cloud cover before the flood.  Also one of the reasons that some poo poo the Noah flood is because today there is not enough water vapor in the firmament to flood the earth to the extent that is described in the biblical account.  I know during the flood there was also water released from underground aquifers also during the flood but that is not part of the question.

#362306 From The Ukraine To War With Russia?

Posted by ThePilgrim on 19 February 2014 - 05:11 PM

According to the Founders, America should provide moral support to those in other nations as well as to certain other nations but should not become involved in their internal matters nor in their external wars. That founding principle is what kept America out of many wars prior to the end of the 19th century.

 

Christians are under the New Covenant which is directed at individual Christians and congregations; not nations. As individuals and congregations we are to spread the Gospel, make disciples and give whatever assistance we can to the poor, orphan, widows and such.

 

All systems of government and their leaders are godless and follow their father the devil. God never proclaimed democracy as a great government (and American's founders considered it the worst). Communism is more openly evil but we have no biblical mandate to try and change the world through war or to advocate for war against certain forms of government.

 

Scripture is very clear that if we do as commanded, we do right, so if we follow the commands given us in Christ, we do well.

I don't think I can offer a better written answer to Swathdivers question about helping other nation than the above.  Well said!

 

God bless,

#362254 How Old Is The Earth

Posted by ThePilgrim on 19 February 2014 - 12:23 PM

Don't know

But whenever the first man, "paleontologist" title notwithstandingdug up the first "dino" skeleton and put the thing together, suppose he DID just call it a dragon: Why are all the bones fossilized, why are there no organic bone skeletons of "dragons"? How come we can find the organic bones from the time of "beowulf" and "beowulf's horse", but none of the dragons he "slew"

I do apologize for having to use internet sources but being an old fossil my memory is not what it use to be.

 

Well first you have to take into consideration the way animals fossilize:

Then you have to consider the problem of how they determine the age of fossils . . . . radiometric dating.  And their are problems with carbon dating and other radiometric methods of dating fossils:

Can any of you doubters of dragons please tell me when did the first paleontologist walk the earth.  You know those guys who came up with the word to label all the bones that you call dinosaur bones.  Can any of you hazard a guess as to what those critters may have been called by our ancestors of hundreds of years ago?  Too help you out I will attach some pictures of some ancient critters that we call dinosaurs and you can take a take a guess at what our ancient ancestors may have called them.  Chances are they did not call them dinosaurs.  Oh, I googled the following link because I could not cut and paste a bunch of pics from my encyclopedia even though I know That makes me appear not as smart as people who don't need google.

#362150 From The Ukraine To War With Russia?

Posted by ThePilgrim on 18 February 2014 - 10:27 PM

How many wars must a people be involved in before they tire of it?  I am not a pacifist.  I believe a nation should defend itself, but that is not what the leaders of this nation have been doing for the last 150 years.  In that time it has been one war after another and as far as I can discern by studying the history of our wars all of them were unnecessary.  From the War of Northern Agression or as some call it the Civil War (there is a misnomer.  No war is civil.) to the Afghanistan War . . . . none were necessary.  Lies, propaganda, and history written by fools to justify it.  How many men must be recruited and sent to die for nothing but the leaders avarice and greed?

 

I'm sorry for the rant.  Maybe I am just too old and tired to let myself be fooled anymore.  I have been in the past one who when listening to the governments reason for another war would say :lets go get em.  Those days are over.  The days when I could pray and ask God to bless America are no more.  Now I pray for God to slap our leaders up side the head and knock some sense into em.  :hide:

I fail to see how calling those who don't agree with your theology Hitler or screamingSIEG HITLER  leads to an edifying conversation.  I do not like or agree with Replacement theology ( I think it is abhorrent) but calling names like a petulant child will not convince anyone of the truth. :unsure:  You can include anti semite in that too.

#360997 Obesity Is A Big Problem Here In The Us

Posted by ThePilgrim on 10 February 2014 - 04:02 PM

I was small boned until the age of 38 when I injured my back.  Then my bones began to grow at a slow pace.  When I quit smoking at the age of 48 and food began to taste better and better my bones began to grow at a faster pace.  Now I would say my bones are a little to large for my height.  :biggrin:

#360252 Can Your Kids Have Gay Friends?

Posted by ThePilgrim on 05 February 2014 - 03:02 PM

I don't know why an openly admitted homosexual would want to spend much time around me or be my so-called friend.  Surely if I am making a stand for Christ and telling him what the bible says about the perversion:Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

 

Should I say "Well it's okay in your case.  I'm sure you were born that way." 

Sorry.  Can't do that.  Knowing what they do in secret with no guilt and knowing how some of them prey on the young.  I know from my own life experience how they prey on the young.  When in my teen years I did a lot of hitchhiking (couldn't afford a car) and on at least three occasions I had a mans hand placed on my knee and suggestions made.  I immediatly got out of the vehicles and got another ride.  In my twenties I was propositioned by a so-called friend. 

 

I do not understand the wide spread belief today that homosexuals are harmless and except for their sexual preference just like anyone else.  The media and the schools, I guess.

Mark me as a hate filled bigot if you will, but if people do not learn from their life experiences they are an going to experience it again or something worse.  If one will not believe the word of God he is bound to believe a lie.  I am afraid too many of us are prone to believe lies and accept that sin is alright in others as long as it doesn,t touch me.  It may not touch you, but it may touch your child or someone else you love. 

 

Just going along accepting this sin or that sin as okay leads to the world we live in today.  Goss immorality has become quite acceptable to the vast majority of the people.  If you don't knock my little foibles, I won't knock yours.  Look what it has gotten us.

 

God bless,

Larry




#360187 Can Your Kids Have Gay Friends?

Posted by ThePilgrim on 05 February 2014 - 12:27 AM

World English Dictionary
friend  (frɛnd)   n 1. a person known well to another and regarded with liking, affection, and loyalty; an intimate 2. an acquaintance or associate 3. an ally in a fight or cause; supporter 4. a fellow member of a party, society, etc 5. a patron or supporter: a friend of the opera 6. be friends  to be friendly (with) 7. make friends  to become friendly (with)

 

Just so you know my definition of a friend.   Only #1 above fits my definition of a friend.

All the other definitions could become a friend but their place in a persons life does not make them a friend by my definition.  Just being #2 thru #7 requires no closeness or trust.  A friend is one you can trust with you or anything of yours including your possesions or the members of your family.  I don't know who said it but: "A true friend is hard to find."

 

If my definition does not fit the world's debinition, so be it.  :mellow:

 

God bless,

Larry
