It’s the late 1700s and Catherine II, also known as Catherine the Great, rules Russia. She ruled Russia for more than 30 years.
During her reign she oversaw the development of areas of Southern Russia. At this point in history European pacifist Christians were being persecuted Continue reading Come out of her God’s people.
Cain killed Abel and this envy and hatred has been rampant ever since.
Last year I wrote an article that touched on the story of Cain and Abel and how it applies to the battle unfolding in modern times. Recent events continue to confirm that side-note from my post last year and merit further elaboration.
It’s no surprise to any believer that the 1st commandment is meaningless to atheists and agnostics alike. Putting God first is a value that is exclusive to believers Continue reading When Cain Killed Abel
What can I say? This stuff is really intriguing. It’s hitting the news faster than I can type. Anne Graham Lotz, Tony Evans… a lot, it seems maybe most, celebrity Christians believe the end is near.
Of course, Christians will always stop short of certainty on the matter, as we have consistently, but since my good friend Les has spent so many keystrokes describing some pretty complicated math, some original, some not so original, I simply must convey the obvious here. As Psalm 90 says: “Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.” So if the 1948 establishment of Israel is the “fig tree” that Jesus spoke of. Then 1948+70=2018, the beginning of a 10 year window of a generation.
2018 is coming fast and from the look of the the world there are about a million ways things might go badly very soon.
There is an old and cheesy joke that goes something like this: “How do you know there was a car in the Bible?” Answer: “Because, the disciples were ‘all in one accord'”… HA HA HA!
The KJV uses the phrase “in one accord” in Acts 2:1 on the day of Pentecost to describe how the disciples were together and unified on that day, but soon after, Acts 10:44 to be exact, it’s more than just the disciples partaking in this unity:
“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.” Continue reading In Two Accords
For those that have spent any time in a third world Country, the realities of corruption are obvious. What’s not obvious is how developed Countries develop more than just their infrastructures. They also develop their corruption practices. Continue reading Justice Crisis USA
Here’s a research project for you. What does China think about America? If you spend about 5 minutes looking through the varying opinions – especially those from Chinese nationals that have not been to America – you’ll discover that there is such a spectrum that it’s virtually impossible to conclude almost anything. Europeans, Canadians, even South Americans seem to be fairly predictable, something like: “we beg you for help when a tyrant invades” (WW2), “refugees flood in” (miscellaneous years), or “we need an alternative to our rationed healthcare and the Castros aren’t playing nice that day” (every-other-day). Yet for Europe and Canada beyond that it’s utter contempt of American individualism (aka liberty) as “selfish” and bravado about their unapologetic socialism. They won’t soon be electing another Margaret Thatcher, that’s for sure. They’re running out of other-peoples-money and they like it. Continue reading What does China think about America?
“…the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?” But Jesus turned and rebuked them.“– Luke 9:53-55
A common theme here has been how “the wind and the waves” don’t obey even the most pious of fake religions, humanistic governments, and especially not wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing “christians.” Even devout believers have faced fiery furnaces where God did not rescue them. Most of the disciples succumbed physically to the fires, stones, crosses, and blades of men. Yet when has evil had the capability to “call fire down from heaven” upon its enemies the way that Sodom and Gomorrah, Egypt, Korah and so many others have learned of the judgement of God? Not until modern times have humans had this power. Continue reading Anathema
More evidence of the steep end-times downward spiral appears every day. The character of human beings has been shipwrecked. There isn’t much time left.
Maybe 5 years, maybe 10, even maybe 50, but it seems quite clear that not a generation will pass, not even half of a generation at this point, before the image of God has been thoroughly snuffed out, squelched, and eradicated. At which point man will no longer have any purpose. The warning of Babel, of humans seeking their own glory. The warning of Lucifer, whose pride was his sole vice. These are now on display hourly. Not just by individuals, but by entire societies. Continue reading The Bottom of the Downward Spiral
This article is written exclusively to creationists. Specifically, creationists who read more than a few sentences at a time. The assumptions (belief, faith, even trust) made herein are based on the theory of creationism, which postulates that the universe was – at minimum – designed by an intelligent designer. A theory consistent with the known laws of physics, such as the first & second laws of thermodynamics. Since the violation of these known laws has never been observed, we consider it anti-scientific to support any theory that assumes that said laws were violated. If you are not a creationist, you are hereby warned and forbidden to continue reading. You have chosen to make assumptions that violate the scientific method. You have chosen the weaker theory and are most likely delusional. So please retreat to one of your infamous echo-chambers. Perhaps spend this time with your dear leaders & priests at RationalWiki. They will certainly encourage and enable your religious trust, beliefs, and faith in the unobserved circumstances which justify ignorance of the known laws of physics. In other words, you’ll enjoy your time there much more than continuing here. Continue reading 21st Century Atheist Faith & Religion Explained
We’ve already discussed the distinct possibility that 1844 marked the beginning of the end times. In Daniel 12 the “sealing” of his prophecy includes this curious statement: “Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” Further, we discussed the relative cowardice of many claiming to be Christian. The information age has brought with it some other curious dates. Continue reading 666, The Ultimate Idolatry
