Mar. 20th, 2006 @ 08:15 pm To The Lions In The Kingdom,
Where to start? I suppose I've been quite the thorn in all of your paws, but I've come to you to beg your pardon. I've come to realize that your ways are, in fact, the more respectable of the two ways. I won't join you, and I will still attempt to free the Unicorns from your grasp, but I want you to at least understand exactly why we are going to battle before we go to battle. This way I can make those of you who decided to give me a chance, neutral against me. If you give me a chance you will find that I am actually quite the machine. In fact, I am such a master machine that I decided to use my efforts for the greater good, which I attest is Jesus the Christ. I want not only to tell you this, and continue to advocate what I do, but also to give you my reasoning so that you may be freed from our polarity before we engage in any combat at all. The pen is mightier than the sword.
I wanted to conclude with a great reasoning for your very benefit.
Just think about it for..as long as it takes.
Everything in the world revolves around the idea of Jesus' divinity.
That's it, that's all I've got. However when you think about it, it has to account for something doesn't it?

Current Mood: angryDeath Penalty 4 Rapists AnyOne

"A New Breed Of Rapists

A woman at a nightclub on Saturday night was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her. Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of Rohypnol in her blood and Progesterex, essentially a small sterilization pill.


The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims. Progesterex is available to vets to sterilize large animals. Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, the date rape drug. As with Rohypnol, all they have to do is drop it into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before. Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn't get pregnant!; she won't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later. The drug's effects ARE NOT TEMPORARY - They are P*E*R*M*A*N*E*N*T Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses.. Any female who takes it will NEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE.. The weasels can get this drug from anyone who is in the vet school or any university. !

It's that easy, and Progesterex is about to break out big on campuses everywhere. Believe it or not, there are even sites on the Internet telling people how to use it. Please forward this to everyone you know, especially girls.. Be careful when you're out and don't leave your drink unattended. Please make the effort to forward this on to all you know...Guys, please inform all your female friends and relatives.

Please be careful out there."

The word peace is mentioned in the Bible over 290 times.

"There is deceit in the heart of those who plot evil, but joy for those who promote peace." -Proverbs 12:19-21

"Blessed are the peacemakers; for they will be called the sons of God." -Matthew 5: 8-10

Honestly, in your heart and soul, in the nature of the Holy Spirit, do you think Jesus Himself would accept the government's justification for war? Why or why not?

Personally, I don't believe God endorses George Bush OR John Kerry.
I don't believe God is involved in petty human politics at all:
"Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and give to God what is God's." -Matthew 22:20-22

I couldn't sleep and I had to write this tonight, not to fight for Kerry or Nader or Bush, but for PEACE.

"You shall not misuse the name of the LORD you God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who uses His name."
I don't think that when God announced this commandment He was speaking only of "Oh my Gods". As a Christian, I am horribly offended by the ease with which President Bush drops God's name in his speeches and so glibly assures Americans that "God is on our side."
I can't think of anything more disrespectful toward the Lord Almighty. We should not selfishly and blasphemously pray that God will follow along with our will, but that we may be blessed enough to carry out His will.

Also, as a Christian, I am sick and tired of the "Christian Right" (which in reality, is neither) taking my Lord's name in vain and using the Bible as a weapon.
"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve." -2 Corinthians 11-15.

One of Satan's greatest deceptions is his ability to fool believers into thinking that he is godly. He is a master of disguise. He is not a stout red man with hooved feet and sharp black horns; he is a presence that is alive in the world today. Turn on your television, your radio. Listen to those voices telling you what is "Christian," what is "right," then step back and think about who Jesus is and what He thinks about it. Then decide for yourself if "homosexuals, abortionists and feminists caused 9/11." Then decide for yourself if protesters against the war are "unpatriotic." Then decide for yourself, on Nov. 2, who really deserves your vote. Vote not only as a concerned citizen, but a follower of the original Protester.

Don't listen to the bumper-sticker Christianity preached by televangelists.
Don't just listen passively to those who tell you that a certain candidate is "more Christian."
Don't even listen to me, except when I say think for yourself.
Any one who preaches his own agenda and not God's deserves a more careful look.

Sit down with the Bible. Read it. Pray.

Then vote.

I don't watch political ads. I don't care what George Bush has to say about "divine inspiration." I don't disrespect him as a person but the sins he has committed in the name of God anger me to the extent that I cannot vote for him with a clear conscience.
"But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness." James 3: 17-18
I'll take God's word over George Bush's any day.

I disabled the comments because I don't care what men think. I care what God thinks.
God Bless, my fellow Christians. Go in peace.

Sep. 30th, 2004 @ 09:13 pm Open Source Theology?

Well, why not?

Here's a quote from one article - "The fact that the world is now practically overrun with mega- evangelists, teachers, pastors, and now prophets and apostles is the Church’s shame. Most are gifted, faithful, and in every way admirable, but the sum of their many great accomplishments pales in comparison to what would happen if every common Christian took seriously his or her general calling to be a friend."

Right now, this is where I'm at. I don't trust anyone who preaches "the Word" and then reaches for my wallet. I would far rather work with and beside someone who is working hard to be a friend - with anyone, but particularly with their associates and friends!

My conduct, my conviction, and my belief show up in my friendship. When I speak the Gospel message, it's in terms of friendship and forgiveness. How else can it be? He who says he loves God, yet hates his neighbor, LIES. "Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him." 1 John 3:15

And if you love your neighbor, you have to let them know that Jesus is real, and ready for them to accept Him as Savior and Lord. Sometimes that may take a while, because in order to be believed, you have to show that you live what you say you believe.

But you know, nowhere in the New Testament do I see "being saved" like the modern-day preachers teach it - I do not see "Accept Jesus as your Savior." Instead I see, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!" I see, "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

So, maybe, along with the house church movement, "Open source theology" is here to stay.

Aug. 18th, 2004 @ 01:30 am a chock full of Judaism questions
Can anyone explain to me how modern Judaism (as in "reformed") got so far away from worshipping God (not just Christ) and moved so hardcore into valuing tradition?
I'm beginning to be personally of the conviction that the only true Jews are the Orthodox Jews. Any other form of Judaism doesn't make sense to me lately! Anyone else out there confused by reformed Judaism? Or can anyone shed some light?

And in addition, according to Christian doctrine on end times and salvation-
what does everyone think will happen to the reformed Jews? Do you think they will be part of the 144,000?
Is it the lineage that makes them precious to the Lord or the values or the fact that they recognize Him?

In addition, I have a dear friend who is Jewish, but really only Jewish for tradition. He feels very strongly about his heritage and his culture, but not really about his God. Anyone have any hints/clues how to discuss Christ with one of these modern Jews? Especially Jews who are violently anti- Christianity because of the history of the two religions?

*And a side story:
I was on the Metro back in April on my way to the March for Women's Lives and saw a group of students with their leaders from the RAC wearing yellow shirts with Scripture on them.
On the back of the shirt- in Hebrew-
Act Justly
Love mercy
Walk humbly March Proudly

-yes, the walk humbly bit was struck out-
(attributed to Micah 6:6-8)

and the real passage:

Micah 6:6-8

6 With what shall I come before the LORD
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8 He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

How can Judaism reconcile this?

and does anyone know about halachic law?
More specifically, anyone know what the following statement is all about?

"The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America (UOJCA) cannot endorse a public policy that does not reflect the complex response of halacha (Jewish law) to the abortion issue. In most circumstances the halacha proscribes abortion, but there are cases in which halacha permits and indeed mandates abortion. The question is a sensitive one and UOJCA feels that personal decisions in this area should be made in consultation with recognized halachic authorities."

ps- sorry so long and possibly unclear!

Lately, I've really been struggling with how to minister to some of my non-Christian friends. They come to me for advice, and most of the time, all I can do is present the Gospel. It's what I perceive as the answer.
Very often, that's not what they want to hear, but what they need to hear! I don't do it in a pushy way, but I do do it.

How do you temper how much you talk about God with non-Christians? Should you temper it?

I've often heard that Jesus was only one of several great historical figures.

That, yes, He existed and inspired, but that he wasn't capable of the great works that many say happened.
Or just simply that there is no way that He could be God.

What do you think?
