    • Pope Francis to speak to Congress
      By bopeep1909 · Posted
      His Holiness Pope Francis will be giving a speech to Congress September 24th.I think this is the first time a Pope has addressed the Congress. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/pope-francis-to-address-congress-in-september/2015/02/05/f30b2982-ad8f-11e4-9c91-e9d2f9fde644_story.html
    • The things in the Bible ain't necessarily so.....
      By Hippie333 · Posted
      God's Word does not pose a stumbling block to people....people pose that block themselves. Believing God's Word is true is not "cult like". Why did Jonah being in the belly of a great fish "have" to be for the Ninevites? It would be of my opinion that the belly of the fish was for others to know of, and of course Jonah himself. God is not forcing you to believe anything Esther4, you are choosing "not" to do so. Jon 1:17  Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Who created the heavens and the earth? .... the same God that prepared a great fish..... It's not about can science find a fish that conforms to what we can prove or disprove by today's standards.... It's not about blind faith either, it's about when the Devil gets it in someones head that A) is flawed..... the rest comes with it. I still pose the question....why is this part about a man and a fish so hard to believe when the same God "SPOKE" and the Universe was created!!!! It's really to me like...God said he made a fish...especially for this purpose.... that is good enough for me...why would I question God's abilities to do as he said? Isa 55:8  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
      Isa 55:9  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
      Isa 55:10  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: ( as for causing someone you witness to ...to stumble) Isa 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. God will lay it on them how He sees fit will He not? - God Bless, Hip  
    • do you believe that the first white horse has been released already

      The famines are caused by a fluctuation in circulating currency which Adam Smith describes throughout The Wealth of Nations.  There is some control over the scales according to the prophecy so that one side is able to continue having oil and wine while the other side struggles to buy bread (Revelation 6:6).  This has been possible since the explorers began amassing gold from other places to use as currency, which has stimulated the economy of several occasion and simultaneously could cripple it.  It all depends on who is in control of the circulating currency, which is why it represents the fulfillment of the 3rd seal.  This has already created famines.  The great depression in an example.  Not everyone suffered during The Great Depression because they still maintained their pile of circulating currency while the rest of population suffered a loss.   
    • The things in the Bible ain't necessarily so.....
      By Esther4:14 · Posted
      There is just something missing to all of this.  The story is written in 3rd person where all the prophets are first person accounts.  It is written with a omniscient view of Jonah.  It is not often that a prophet refers to himself from this perspective.   Josephus has very little to say on the subject in The Antiquities of the Jews.  He says "now I have given an account of him, as I have found it written in our books."  That is all he says.  He adds no further understanding about this man in regard to the history of his people than what is given in the story that we use.   The Smithsonian museum does state some good information about the probability of surviving if you were swallowed by a sperm whale, which says that although it is possible for a sperm whale to swallow a person as opposed to a whale shark whose esophagus is too small to swallow a human.  The sperm whale has 4 stomachs, which make it unlikely that a person could survive the digestive process.   But, I suppose that someone could still argue that this doesn't matter.  But, it does.  When I am witnessing to people when I feel forced to accept something as factual that defies actually being possible to a certain extent, then that creates a stumbling block to others who see this kind of obedience as no different than belonging to any cult.  I do not believe that He wants to force me to believe something for the sake of seeming fancy and being able to do things that defy what modern day science teaches.  That completely defies what He said about not giving a flamboyant sign to a wicked generation (Matthew 16:4).  I believe that He wants me to know the truth and have it set me free, test the spirits, and be wise as serpents (1 John 4:1; John 8:31-32, Matthew 10:16).   In addition, there could have been historical documents that have been destroyed for one reason or another.  But, either way, it is possible that we are oppressed in our knowledge of this story.   It also says He said, ""For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation," (Luke 11:30).   But, how would Jonah be a sign to the Ninevites because he was in the belly of the fish, when they knew nothing about him being in the belly of whale, and this was irrelevant to his message of repentance addressed to them; if the story did not serve as a sign of greater significance than simply being representative of the time Jesus would spend in the grave before He was resurrected?   Or, was it God's will to give a story to His people that He planned to use as a sign because people would remember a story better than the words of the prophets.  They would be more familiar with it, the same way people will know about The Hunger Games, but they might not know who the congressman is for their state.   Peace.  
    • How to give a Donald Trump speech in 12 easy steps

      This was all started by a grown man wearing tights... I would just like to point this out.... Whom also picked a name of a fictitious character for himself. Its simple, if you are led by the HS then you can interpret of decipher scripture. I think the best post by far on here is from Hippie... If you can believe God created the Heavens and the Earth then why is Jona so hard to believe... If you are doubting the validity of scripture, you need to pray and pray hard because you are certainly not listening to God.

    • Trump tosses Univision reporter out of rally
      By Burning_Ember · Posted
      I have no doubt that Trump has a great shot at winning primary voters, who tend to be more hardcore in their beliefs than the general electorate. Of course, the point of the primaries are to decide who is the candidate for that party for President, and seeing as Trump is #1 right now, he's the most likely candidate for the Republicans. Democrats would love to have Trump be the Republican candidate for President. The media would love it, but I think he'd end up being too extreme, even on immigration policy, and they would have a problem with that. The best example being him advocating for making birthright citizenship no longer a policy.

    • Why did God create evil?
      By Butero · Posted
      I can't say for sure from scripture, so all I can do is tell you what I believe.  I asked the Lord that very question, and I believe that the answer I got was that it is to show a contrast between God's ways verses the alternative.  It is not just for mankind to witness it, but his entire creation.  We will have all witnessed the damage and destruction evil causes, and we will always know that God's ways are right and just.  Since this is not something I can prove from scripture,  you have to judge within yourself if this is right.  I don't expect people to accept something based on a personal revelation automatically.
