  1. WorthyNews:US job openings soar to record high of 6.3 million

    And again though: you're missing the point. The jobs that are out there are not "money" for anyone who seriously needs income and will not do much to help, especially for those who are disabled and are barely getting by. In case you haven't noticed: rents across the country have skyrocketed into the 800's for a 1 bedroom anywhere near where there's grocery stores and medical assistance. When you cannot drive or have no transportation, living out in the boondocks is not an option, especially when you need continual medical care by a specialist. The "jobs" being touted are minimum-wage, "service industry" crud that kids start off with and are not meant for people who have been in careers or who can barely function due to disability. Quite a large percentage of the folks out of work right now are between 40 and 60 years old who had careers nuked due to the nonsense out there. And since you claim this is not about "disability", a little fact for you: with Social Security dragging everything out to try to keep the amount of folks on it down, people who have been repeatedly denied are being forced to go back when they really cannot. When you get past 45 years old and have to try to push 6-8 shopping carts, it gets "fun." Moreso when you physically are a wreck due to injury or illness. And with that, I'm done here. -Sojo414 out.
  2. The Bible and the dinosaur.

    Yes; I posted some a few posts back in this topic.
  3. The Bible and the dinosaur.

    Then you may find this of interest: Dr. Libby chose to ignore this discrepancy (nonequilibrium state), and he attributed it to experimental error. However, the discrepancy has turned out to be very real. The ratio of 14C /12C is not constant. The Specific Production Rate (SPR) of C-14 is known to be 18.8 atoms per gram of total carbon per minute. The Specific Decay Rate (SDR) is known to be only 16.1 disintegrations per gram per minute.3 What does this mean? If it takes about 30,000 years to reach equilibrium and 14C is still out of equilibrium, then maybe the earth is not very old. From: Answers in Genesis, https://answersingenesis.org/geology/carbon-14/doesnt-carbon-14-dating-disprove-the-bible/ You might wish to review that entire article and consider the implications mentioned in it. From what I have posted just here alone, it raises some serious implications, wich bring Carbon-14 dating back into question.

    When you're disabled and most places are only offering jobs that you physically cannot do, that is bad enough. Even worse is when someone needs disability, cannot get on it, and are doubly rooked over because they cannot even try to hobble through a minimum-wage job while in agony (I did that for 3 months until it was too much to take). Social Security has their procedure in place to deliberately "wait out" people, until they either die or force themselves to work when it is medically inadvisable and do even more damage to themselves. Unless someone is willing to go over each and every household and determine what is "within their means", I really don't think that dog will hunt. Then again, it must be nice when a person's spine, knee, chest tendons, brain and skull are all intact and functioning normally. (Wish I knew how that must feel).
  5. Is this true?

    For the Lord to call attention to these churches should get our attention.
  6. Try your skill at the Bible quiz

    I question whoever wrote this quiz...

  8. church routine

    I've noticed this as well, Davida.
  9. Conversation about the Tribulation and God`s Wrath.

    Steve, One slight problem: the entire time of the Tribulation, from the first Seal Judgment to the last Bowl Judgment, is the time of the wrath of the Lamb and of Gad: " I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” " (Revelation 6:12-17, NASB, emphasis mine) Since this is part of the Seal Judgments, there is no indication of separation between them. Otherwise, they would not have been included in the Seal Judgments. The major issue here is not how many "Tribulations" exist (Jesus said in Matthew that there would be only one time and no other time like it), but that in Matthew and Luke, Jesus is speaking to the Jews of Israel before the advent of the Church. Paul, meantime, is addressing the Church, which had been revealed by this point and was now operating via the Holy Spirit. While Satan indeed is angry and seeks to harm Israel and whomever he can after being flung to earth in Revelation 12, it is because his time at that point is growing very short. But the Lord has been holding back considerably for millennia now, and the tribulation is His time of wrath, as Scripture shows us. -Sojo414.
  10. By By Anthony DeStefano There’s no polite way to say it. Atheists today are the most arrogant, ignorant and dangerous people on earth. We’ve all seen how these pompous prigs get offended by the slightest bit of religious imagery in public and mortified if even a whisper of “Merry Christmas” escapes the lips of some well-meaning but naïve department store clerk during the “holiday season.” To cite a few recent examples: Last December, the group “American Atheists” launched its annual billboard campaign with the slogan: “Stay Away from Church—it’s All Fake News.” In February, the “American Humanist Association” became furious when President Trump had the gall to mention Christianity and Jesus Christ without also mentioning atheists—at the National Prayer Breakfast! (How dare he!) And just this month, the “Freedom From Religion Foundation” raised holy hell because the Reverend Billy Graham was laid out in state in the Capitol Rotunda before his burial. Yes, these atheists are loud, nasty, unapologetic and in-your-face. But while their arrogance is annoying, it’s nothing compared to their ignorance. Atheists believe that the vast majority of human beings from all periods of time and all places on the Earth have been wrong about the thing most important to them. They basically dismiss this vast majority as being either moronic or profoundly naïve. What they don’t seem to know – or won’t admit – is that the greatest contributions to civilization have been made, not by atheists, but by believers.

  11. Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    Smiling while the wolves devour the sheep isn't going to help. And as much as many of us try to debunk the garbage out there, there is a never-ending flow of it ; just ask Davida, Cobalt1959, Shiloh357, Yowm and the others who have tried repeatedly. I'm sure we "do everything wrong" and that folks can surely tell us a "better way to do it", but I never seem to see them when a new cockeyed "teaching" or half-baked "concept" comes up and we're the only ones who are willing to even engage it. Not everyone who comes here is a "misguided soul" who simply needs "correction". I've seen several other sites go down this same exact road, and the result is the same time and time again. They end up as ghost sites with no one on them, former shadows of their previous selves while the false teachers and trolls search rabidly for "new hunting grounds" to exploit. All while believers repeatedly surrendered the sword of the spirit and the shield of faith simply to appease the "don't fight " crowds. Tell you what: don't bother even listening. I'll even do you the favor and report myself for disagreeing with the "yes people" of the board. I'm done in this topic; don't even bother replying to me. -Sojo414 out.
