    Will the economy crash again

    It doesn't matter if the dollar is backed by gold or not. It has a value we place on it for any product or service. It's nowhere near collapsing. It does matter what it is backed by. Otherwise it's just a piece of paper and represents nothing other than...well, paper and someone telling you it has value (what a gimmick, huh?) The dollar is currently backed by OPEC oil. Many peoples and nations benefit from the current system. However, we can borrow(from the private Fed)/print (our treasury prints it) as much as we'd like, and this can cause artificial inflation (devaluing the dollar).This steals the value from those who hold it in the reserves. This is why China doesn't like the system so far. It steals from them indirectly.One form of inflation is based on growth and another in excess is based on mere printing. The stock market growing doesn't show just pure growth, it shows inflation. There is much manipulation also involved to sustain this system without feeling immediate fraudulent effects. However, our economy is unsustainable. It is extremely vulnerable to outside factors (derivatives, foreign investment, rates, other nations reserves, wars, divestment, etc.) To keep it simple, The Federal Reserve (Which is not Federal and there is no reserve) has explicit authority over our rates (Not our politicians!). We (the US) borrow from them (International private bankers aka our central bank). The borrower is a slave to the lender. The hand that gives is above the hand that takes. We are in the red...not the black! This is very bad...not good. We are in debt ($17 trillion+). We are not a creditor, we are insane debt! Unsustainable debt. Only allowed to continue by extremely low rates. The stock market is a bubble that can pop at any point. We HAVE to borrow from the FED. If they raise our rates even very little the interest on our debt will become difficult at best and depending on how much and how fast; unbearable and unpayable. A collapse of the old order (the current one) will have to occur for a new one to arise. This is the aim, the goal and the future (it's not if...but when). That's the question. A collapse WILL occur and major wars will begin (or vice versa).But they will both happen. Then the ruling class will be able to create a new order out of the chaos. In my opinion, the stage is set for this to happen at any point and probably sooner than later. Really... All of what you stated has been stated over and over and over again since the 1920s. There are some many theories out there on the economy, but none hold any water.If you wait long enough most of it will occur, but not all.

    Can Only the Elect Accept God and be saved ?

    in every case, those passages are dealing with the issue of God choosing whom He will for the purpose of accomplishing is His plans and agenda in the earth. None of those passages has anything to do with who is or isn't saved. God doesn't choose to save some and not others. Jesus death was for all mankind. can God soften someone heart ? GOD can do whatever he wants.

    Will the economy crash again

    The economy is getting better, but the average individual will not notice the effects until about another 10 months. Unless you follow the financial news closely you really won't know what is going on. The stock market is a leading indicator, meaning folks don't invest unless they believe the returns are going to be there in the future. And look the market is at its all time high. Will the market crash again, Yes. Will it be anytime soon, no.

None of those passages has anything to do with who is or isn't saved. God doesn't choose to save some and not others. Jesus death was for all mankind. I agree Christ died for all of mankind, however all will not be saved. If GOD wanted all to be saved then all would be, but that is not the case. And yes, who will be saved without having their purpose/destiny defined by GOD? Who can be saved without GOD's permission? I say only the elect.

    Can Only the Elect Accept God and be saved ?

    A few verses to ponder: John 15:16New King James Version (NKJV) 16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. 2 Timothy 2:20 (KJ21) | In Context | Whole Chapter 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to honor and some to dishonor. Romans 9:21New King James Version (NKJV) 21 Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor? John 6:44New King James Version (NKJV) 44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. IMO its a mystery.
  6. Tensions are mounting around the world. Putin adding nuclear capability to his latest rhetoric and ISIS interested in chemical weapons.

    media ignores white man killed by black cop

    Racism in reverse needs to get more attention. With Obama being the "leader of the free world" or "leader of the worlds last super power", all the racial rhetoric would have subsided but it seems to have escalated. The current news cycle keeps the minorities against Cops in full view which is not the norm, but isolated instances.

    Husband of one wife....

    I see bishop in the text so I wouldn't go beyond that. It's not necessary to second guess God, although being human it can be a reflex at times. Bishops, correct me if I'm wrong, establish/oversee more then one church/pastor. With that said, if you are not able to be a witness/example that represents a higher standard, it would be hard to establish credibility of spiritual authority with the new Pastors and/or carnal Christians.
  10. Yes, I did go back and reviewed the text, before responding above. A few points: You make the statement "you just think" which is fine. You make the statement "prayed about my attitude". Why did you pray about it? Are you not settled? I've come to understand that a disciple can only walk in the revelation they've received or possess. Regarding the tithe, I see it being given to the Jews, due to their hardness of heart. It's a good endeavor to know what parts of the old testament are overturned by the new testament and which ones are not, but expanded. Shalom

    Making Disciples?

    Interesting The making disciple part of the great commission doesn't get much attention. I formed a discipleship group for those wanting to move closer to God.
  12. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have unlimited resources to stay afloat, the US Treasury. The president nor congress wants the public to know how much money has been flushed down the toilet so they distract the public by keeping the focus on the big banks.
  13. Ah okay well... Interestingly enough few on this thread have said they believe in tithing. And we are all who disagree with you adopted children of the King of Kings. We are co-heirs in Christ. Not dogs. Sorry. I also notice that you didn't address any of the Scripture presented (in both in the thread and of course Omegaman has a very detailed study of Scripture on the subject linked in ) and provided no counter argument. Sure if this is a personal conviction as something between you and God that is great brother. So you have made a covenant with Him on this? God bless, GE I'll review the links and revert back. Ok, it appears the focus of the scriptures is the amount 10% (tithe) and that it's old testament thereby meant for the JEWS. If you take the position that everything in the old testament is not applicable to the gentiles, it's reasonable to conclude tithing is not required. I find the scriptures below revealing: 1 Corinthians 9:14 14 Even so the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should live from the gospel. Galatians 6:6 6 Let him that is taught in the Word share with him that teacheth, in all good things. Matthew 5:17 17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. My interpretation of the last scripture is that the 10% in the old testament was just a starting point. With Jesus we are to go above and beyond.
  14. I'm sorry this in bold Enoc is addressed to who? Omegaman? Or perhaps me? Where do you see in the Bible a command for Christians to Tithe? Let's look at the passages together. The difference is that the Biblical tithe is 10% twice a year as well as once every 3 years and a command to Israel. A gift can be greater than 10% I agree giving should be out of gratitude to God as an act of worship. God bless, GE The statement in bold is not meant for anyone here , but an observation made over many years. On the other hand, a kicked dog will bark. I don't consider tithing a command, it's based on my personal relationship with GOD. It's a covenant we have, which I honor.

    Joel Osteen. False Prophet?

    Please provide the name of one man or woman alive or dead that spoke/taught 100% without error, excluding Jesus ? I've come to understand that no man/woman is perfect or possess the total revelation of GOD, and being human prone to error. With that said, take the fruit that you are able to eat and leave the rest.
