Fat In The Sacrifice

06 January 2015 - 11:02 AM

Question:  Why did God demand the fat of the sacrifices to belong to Him? And why was fat disallowed for the people of Israel to eat?

17-Year-Old "transgender" Teen Commits Suicide

31 December 2014 - 07:37 PM

http://www.usatoday....pes=og.comments

 

I read this article, and I must say, my heart goes out to this boy.

 

Here's a kid, born Joshua, who "self-identified", (fantasized), as a girl, supposedly since he was four. 

 

Of course, society was on his side, as were friends, school, etc. But, he was raised in church, though not sure how much, or what kind, and his parents sought to turn him around, apparently having him see 'Christian" psychologists, (I don't agree with this idea).

 

So, with parents rejecting his fantasy, and the rest of society embracing it and rejecting reality, he chose to commit suicide by walking out in front of a semi. It was not known to be a suicide until the next day when a suicide note came up on his , what, Twitter, I think, or something, preset to open the next day.

 

This boy said he wanted his death to 'mean something', a strike at the heart of intolerance, I suppose, and for civil rights of LGBT's. Sadly, it was a meaningless death, a waste of a life with great potential, except for the poisoning of his mind by a wicked society.

 

No, I don't say anyone else made him walk out in front of that truck-he made the choice, and at 17, he was smart enough to know it was a bad idea. But this is the society he was born to, one that embraces "perception" over reality. At least, in certain cases. I suppose they wouldn't allow me to self-identify as female when I go to the gym showers, right? Or identify as black, color my skin, perm my hair, and insist I am a minority. I suspect I'd get a serious beating for that. But its a sin to today's society to insist your "perception" of reality on someone else's, even though reality is, well, reality. male is male, and no matter how many surgeries and hormone replacements, a man is still a man, even if you remove the stem, and add melons, (sorry). 

 

This kid was messed up, confused, and sadly, society embraced his faulty perception, and called it his own reality, and encouraged his rebellion against his parents, who were the only ones who loved him enough to tell him the truth. Do I blame society? To a point, yes, because to many today, there is no more truth, no more absolutes, no more reality, save for one's personal perception of such-its taught in school, trumpeted by the government and the TV and even 'science'.  What can a parent do anymore against such odds?

 

I pray for the family, left berift of their child, facing a society that is blaming them for being intolerant Christians, when really, if anyone else is to blame outside the boy, it is society. And it makes me sad and makes me sick, and now this boy is in hell.

 

I know he made the choice. I just sorrow over the senseless loss, and him being so deluded by teachers and the president and neighbors who told him it was all fine. Now he has to taste truth, a harsh, eternal reality. Pray for his family.

Prayer Need

15 December 2014 - 04:48 PM

Just got a call from a friend, their son, who is 23, but very developmentally disabled, like an 8-year-old, was found in his trailer by his parents unconscious, blood all over the trailer, and foaming at the mouth. They don't know what's wrong, but they are seeking prayer. They are believers.  

 

He is very disabled, but yes, lives in his own trailer in the backyard, as the local crazy California law says that since he is above 18, they have to give him his own place. Figured it was just a matter of time before it bit them.

 

His name is Jason, his parents are Paul and Linda Smith.   Thanks

New "evolutionary" Find! Being Called A Missing Link. Hmph

24 November 2014 - 12:34 PM

http://www.sci-news....ndia-02293.html

 

So, once again, evolutionary scientists have discovered bones of an animal they are crowing about, calling it a missing link, or an transitionary specimen, that links Rhinos, Horses and Tapirs.

 

Their primary evidence for this seems to be wrapped up in this statement from the article:

 

“Many of Cambaytherium thewissi‘s features, like the teeth, the number of sacral vertebrae, and the bones of the hands and feet, are intermediate between Perissodactyla and more primitive animals. This is the closest thing we’ve found to a common ancestor of the Perissodactyla order.”

 

So, some teeth, bones and feet are similar to some other animals-so it MUST be evidence that modern animals with an uneven amount of toes on their back feet all evolved from these. never a thought of the possibility that it just might be a unique animal.

 

I also like how they have scientifically painted a picture of what it looked like, to include hair and color patterns.

 

I get so aggravated lately, what with Bill Nye the Science so-called Guy declaring that children tqaught creation can't be good citizens of the next generation, because their understanding is stunted, and there can never come any good science from creationists, while all the time ignoring that he and other scientists, (he isn't one, by the way) stand on the shoulders of creationists who discovered the various LAWS of the universe, not just theories, and even today, we have people like Damadian, a six-day creationist that invented the MRI scanner, one of the greatest recent medical breakthroughs to assist in treatments.

 

Bill Nye, the guy who holds a BACHELOR'S in Mechanical Engineering, is now one of the go-to-guys for proof of evolution. Its funny-now, I realize that someone doesn't need big credentials to study and understand such things as science, but if a creationist scientist who holds anything less than a Ph. D in one of the accepted evolutionary sciences tries to stand for scientific creation, they will be ignored and called worthless as a proponent, because he doesn't have good enough credentials.

 

yet, here's Bill Nye, with his bachelors in mechanical engineering, NOT an evolutionary science, I believe, but he sure is a rock star with the evolution set.

 

By the way, in his debate with Ken Ham, which I was sorely disappointed with because the debate forum was poorly designed for an actual debate, Nye didn't bring up anything that hasn't been dealt with and well-answered before.

Rough Couple Of Weeks On The Farm

15 September 2014 - 02:04 PM

Had a rough couple weeks on the farm, really only two days, but spread out.

 

We have three livestock dogs, one herding dog, and (had) one Canardly (Canardly tell what it is).

 

Our livestock dogs will kill and eat a chicken, but when they are locked away, they don't try to get to them. Our herd dog, an Australian Shepherd, once tried to herd the chickens to the desert, but never hurt any. However, our other dog, who we found as a desserted dog near the farm six years back, suddenly up and broke into the chicken pen, at night, killed our six ducks, two half-grown, hand-raised chicks, and one very young chick. Didn't eat any, just killed them.

 

So the first impulse is to put her down, but since she gets on well with other dogs and cats, and is very friendly, we decided to wait and try to find her a new home.

 

However, before we could find one, she broke her chain, and got into the rabbit pen, and killed all but six of our rabbits-again, not eating any, just killing them. About 20 rabbits. The six who survived, were small enough to duck into the back of one of the houses out of her reach. So, we brought the pother dogs over and put her down where they could see it, and left her, for the time being, by the rabbit pen where she had been digging to get in. To make a point.

 

Very sad, but had to be done. She was the first animal I have killed-usualy my wife does the killing when we butcher, but this was my job. The other dogs have all been on very good behavior, and our alpha male livestock dog has even been rolling onto his back for me, something he never did before, so they were impressed.

 

Sometimes, farm life isn't a lot of fun.  I hope I have not hurt anyone's sensibilities with this, just how it is.
