  • 20 Things You Didn't Know About... Testosterone

    No one seems to have connected T with cancer. That would be me. I've always had High T and got bald, was prone to fight, and was muscular, and seem to do better than most with the women. Then I got prostate cancer. Now I spend the rest of my life trying to keep a "normal" T level.

    If I wasn't a cancer survivor, I would be reading this and probably be getting shots from my MD thinking everything is good. IT"S NOT!!! Free info on the interweb is just that,.....free.

  • Milo Yiannopoulos Says He Will Start Gay Conversion Therapy

    chuckles to 2ndDivisionVet

    Can’t tell for sure, but it sounds like a joke. If Milo really isn’t ready to give it up, it’s like telling a smoker to quit smoking or an alcoholic to quit drinking. They can, but they probably won’t. In order to get to these tipping points, you have to be at the end of your rope. On Youtube there are hundreds of people giving testimony about going straight. Invariably it involves a relationship with God. Does Milo believe? Has he been born again? IMHO, it’s a waste of time and energy if you don’t come to God first. Putting God above your flesh is always the first step in getting control of your own life. From what I read, he doesn’t really mean what he is saying. I’m sure most homosexuals would rather be straight, but if it involves work, they just stay where they are at.

  • Did Noah Really Live to Be 950?

    I also think the earth and atmosphere were entirely different pre flood, but that's not the point of my post. The point of my post was you don't have to be a scientist to explain the Bible and what it says. We must believe by faith. You can't please God without faith. If God can make the Sun stand still in the sky for 3 hours, you can't explain that in any scientific terms, yet I believe it happened. Just as God took dirt and breathed life into it to make a living soul cannot be done by DNA editing, cloning, or anything man may think is equal to God. If God raised Lazarus after 4 days while he was stinking, He prove that He IS THE TRUTH! Everyone said he was dead, but Jesus explained was sleeping. Do you stink when you sleep? Jesus said "Come Forth!" and he did. The point being if Jesus said he was sleeping and he remained dead, Jesus would have been a liar.

    The lesson here is don't try to put God in a box. There is no box for Someone that created the universe. Why do we struggle to make up a story for something God has already explained to us?

    It would be an interesting exercise to find out how many here believe the Bible and those that don't and then find out how many go in the Rapture and those left behind.

    I believe every word in the Bible. I believe even the jot's and titles are there to give information from God. If you believe nothing is impossible for God, then stand on that principle. If you believe God's ways are not our ways and His ways are higher than our ways, then stand on that principle. If you believe "Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.", then you understand that you will have to stand on your faith in order to please God.

    God imparted the wisdom in Genesis that "the evening and the morning were the first day" to give us prophesy of the end times. Peter tells us 2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. That was to tell us there will be 6,000 years of history and then Jesus will rule and reign for 1,000 years in a day of rest. Peter even mentions the scoffers as it was in the days of Noah to show these same scoffers are her today even as Biblical prophesy unfolds before their eyes. Even Dan 8:26 "And the vision of the evenings and mornings Which was told is true; Therefore seal up the vision, For it refers to many days in the future." Tells us it is important to believe the days were an evening and a morning. When we try to change the Word of God to suit what the world thinks, you lose the message God was trying to impart to His people. "His people" is absolutely descriptive of the people He is talking to. If you don't want to be one of "His people", then make up your own scriptures. Jesus didn't come to His disciples and declare, "You know all that Genesis stuff I wrote, ahhh there were these monkeys that changed to Adam and Eve over billions of years but I didn't want you to know that God was a monkey, as you were created in God's image." Ahhh, you know that flood was just a river bank overflowing that stupid people couldn't get through their numb skulls that just because a couple of their neighbors died, it wasn't the end of the world." NO, Jesus preached right from the scrolls He wrote and backed up the stories printed in Genesis. If Jesus was a liar, He wasn't perfect and could not be our sacrifice for sin.

    The more I study the Bible, I see the love of God and His provision for "His people". There is that phrase again. NO one is forcing anyone to be "His people". The problem arises when someone claims the name of Christ, yet calls Him a liar. That is called "taking the Lord's name in vain". If my wife says she loves me, but goes out with other men and calls me a liar, why even bother to take my name? Jesus will come to take His bride one day and I think He will take a woman that loves Him, believes what He says , and follows His commands. It's not good enough to know the story of Jesus and then say you don't believe it. There are many verses speaking to this but just know that they will be left behind for the Beast and there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. If we think not being in jail is good enough to go with God and be His companion forever, we have carved out a god in our head that doesn't match the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. This is called idol worship. The Bible is plain and explains itself if you read the whole book. Changing even one word or adding and subtracting one word gets you a curse.

    Yes, Noah was 950 years old when He died. Stop trying to make what you think match some wild theory man has thought up. Believe God. Why would you think you can disbelieve the Genesis story, but say you believe Jesus was born of a virgin? Was sinless? Was able to die to cleanse your sin? Rose from the grave? Is sitting at the right hand of the Father in Heaven waiting to come for His bride? What makes a 950 year old man less believable? You believe by faith, not by sight. I have faith that my Savior, who gave His life for me, would NOT allow me to believe a lie. Jesus said he did not come to judge the world, but to save it. In the same verse He said the WORDS He spoke would judge the world. The Bible will judge you by what you believed and did not believe.( saved by grace through faith) If you really believed God, you would do what He said to do.

  • Poll: [56%] Hispanics back Trump deportations, ending 'sanctuary cities'

    chuckles to GonzoII
    American Hispanics know when the pickup with 15 illegals pulls up on your job, you are either about to be cut or your wages are about to go down. In Texas, illegals build houses. You can't make a living as a brick layer, carpenter, roofer, ect now because bands of illegals do it for 7-8 dollars an hr. When ICE shows up, it looks like cock roaches scattering and the building stops for a couple of weeks until they can round up a few hundred more. Home builders have 10-12 homes going at once and after ICE, they can't even get one crew.

    After a hurricane, you can't even get one roofer because they always move to the hurricane area and get the "BIG" money of $12-$15 an hr. American Hispanics know all this and I can't believe the number was not higher than 52%.

  • Trump did not threaten war with Mexico, U.S. and Mexican officials agree

    chuckles to ColdOne
    What I don't understand is why Pena is still digging his hole. We send them foreign aid. We send money over the border, could invoke a tax, and about 20 other methods of extracting the money from them to pay for the wall. maybe it will be taken care of in new NAFTA talks, but Mexico cannot stop paying for the wall. If we send a couple of billion to Mexico for foreign aid, just stop paying and they pay for the wall. it seems stupid to keep saying they won't pay.

    Instead of denying the inevitable, why not start talks on how best to pay for it to save face and money for Mexico? Trump doesn't even need to negotiate with Mexico and could do this without even picking up the phone. Pena will go down in flames if he doesn't come to reality.

    I have a couple of people pressing me for info on Trump and Epstein now. You need to do your own searches to find stuff. I cannot find the name of the Freeper that told me to stop posting about Epstein and Trump. I was suspended about that time and my posts seemed to have been removed.

    Go to the search box and type in Epstein and look back to around 11-2016 and read some of the articles and posts here on FR. You can see some of the hostility shown here by Freepers to other Freepers. All you have to do to get an attack is just report what went on in the trials.

    Go here and be sure to read the Epstein sworn testimony about taking the 5th when asked about Trump. We know they knew each other and socialized together for 15 years.

    There is more, but I really don't have the time to do what you should be doing. I'm just making the statement that if Clinton comes up in the Epstein case, you will see Trumpsters start to squirm. I voted for Trump, but would have preferred Cruz. If you think Trump would't bump a 14 yo, you are living in a dream world. I believe he has changed, but that doesn't count for your past in the legal world. maybe there is a statute of limitations here, but that doesn't help the political reality if that comes out. Clinton could rape and use cigars on women and he could be king of the world even today. I don't think Trump has that sort of cache.

    ...."Cruz is not eligible."....

    Government and the courts say he is. You are fighting reality. I suffered through 8 years of the debate over Obama. We lost. Nat Born Citizen is whatever they say it is. Making Obama POTUS proves an anchor baby that doesn't even speak English can be POTUS. Typing on a blog doesn't change anything.

    I'm sure the libs marching and burning think they are changing the reality of Trump as POTUS, but 4 years from now, he will still be POTUS, with all the law suites and protests still going on. I'm just waiting for Dunham or Judd to open a vein on Facebook live.

    Why are you so determined to believe that Trump wasn't with Epstein? He has admitted they were friends for years. He's in the billionaire club. Don't you thing the movers and shakers know what's going on. How do you get an English prince on your flight and no one else knows what's going on? I'm in favor of Clinton being tied to Epstein, but you better be ready for Pence as POTUS when that happens. Do you think any Clinton will go down without taking the whole bunch down with him? Just remember back when the Blue dress was being tested for DNA. He had everything covered till then. They even got away with calling Clinton's victim's bimbo's.

    I believe that also. That doesn't make the rumored trips to Epstein's island untrue. I believe he has changed his mind on abortion also. The Holy Spirit convicts one thing at a time. I'm hoping he has someone close by to disciple him through the hard times.

    Mat 12:43 "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.

    Mat 12:44 Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.

    Mat 12:45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation."

    If his house is empty, he won't have the bread of life to fight off the spirits. Bible study and meditating on the Word day and night keeps you from falling back. Taking bad things out and deliverance from evil things can change back overnight without discipleship. He was a Democrat till just a couple of years ago. Just living in NYC and Washington DC is like Lot living in Sodom.

    There are plenty more if you look. It's NOT A SECRET!

    The reason I brought it up was entirely different than spreading rumors. I was stating about how FR was treating the story, not whether or not there was a story. The story was there for everyone to see, FR didn't want to talk about it. I didn't know about Trump being implicated until FR shut me up. I'm NOT against Trump. I wanted someone in the Trump org to exploit the story. THEY DON'T WANT TO!!!!

    Just reading the Daily Caller story you see that Trump was asked and denied it even though they already had statements about their long time friendship.

    ...."You’re a lunatic".....

    Thank you for proving what I've been saying about FR and the atmosphere here today. I can't stay here all day typing, but I would love to hear what your reaction would be if Trump was on the flights down there and impeachment was started. How would you vote? You didn't seem to care that he was caught in his own voice saying lewd things on a bus. That's not rumor, it was his voice. I voted for him anyway, did you? Was that not that bad, but if he actually did it, that's a whole different thing? He's been married 3 times. Do you figure he never committed adultery? Fornication? If you put him up on a pedestal, get ready, he will get knocked down. California has just passed a law stating child prostitutes cannot be picked up by police. They decided arresting them was just more child abuse, so they leave them out there doing tricks. Are you worried enough about American children to say something to their governor, maybe a Senator or Congressman?

    I'm just telling you there is a real world out there that you have your eyes closed to.

    His salvation is not up to me, but if he could put a couple of SCOTUS choices that were conservatives, what a win! If he could change the law punishing churches for preaching against sin and they get harassed, so much the better. If he could defund Planned Parenthood, that's worth it right there. That's real change. Looking for the perfect hasn't worked in my 65years of looking.

    Just try to imagine Franklin Graham running for POTUS. Pick your favorite preacher and imagine it. They would not win. It would be a skunk. We live in Babylon and people don't have eyes to see and ears to hear. You take what you can get where you can get it until Jesus comes.

    Look, I'm all for it. Bring it all into the light of day. But you know as well as I if Clinton goes down it will bring down Trump also if he was there. Go for it, I would love to have Clinton remembered as the sexual freak that he is. But be ready for anything if you do.

    Remember, If I knew about Epstein and Clinton, don't you think Trump knew? Why cover it up? I was cheering to expose it before the election and got NADA. I wrote FNC, CNN, ABCNBCCBS, Hanity, Orielly, ect. I wrote the stations and individuals, ......nothing! There are even pictures of the pilot manifests and government forms requesting the Secret Service protection for the trips. Maybe they want to cover for Prince Andrew to not make a global scandal, I don't know. All I know is the powers that be want it covered up. This is not new news. It will take a 3rd party suing to get the info out in public. This may do it. Judicial Watch has been good at this, but they don't hold back on Republicans either.

    I salute your morals and agree with you. Now, let's say this came out right before the election. Would you vote for Hillary? Sanders? Not vote? Or would you vote for Trump anyway, believing the other votes would destroy America? Not voting is a vote for Hillary. I'm not voting for a man, I'm voting for America, my country, for my wife and children, for the soldiers dying at the direction of Obama, for the workers losing their jobs at the direction of the Democrats.

    I'm a Christian also. I teach Sunday school in my church. I teach Bible study in my home. I just know that men are flawed. It's our job to find and vote for the "best one". If Hillary or Sanders would have won, America would be lost. That means you, your family, and everyone you know would fall under the policies of Satan worshipers. Yes, people that would kill babies will have no problem killing you and your family. They have no qualms stealing your money and leaving you penny less. Your children will be broken in school learning that women and men are a choice and anyone can mate with anything. They will learn there is no God and mom and dad are crazy.

    That has been the trail of Dems for decades now. Other than Jesus coming back, the one hope we have now is 4 years of Trump. He's going to fail you. No one is perfect. I'm absolutely sure more rocks will be uncovered soon. Clinton used a cigar for sex on a girl barely legal and was not impeached. A majority of people lionize him even today and if he had run again instead of Hillary, he would have won and somebody would have modified the Constitution. It is said that he had hundreds of women and it's all but proven he raped a couple and sexually assaulted many more.

    These children you are wanting to "save" are being abused as we type every day in their home countries, yet we trade with them, send them aid, and consider many of them "allies". Epstein "buys" them, feeds them, clothes them, better than anything they can get at home. If you want to weep for children, take a vacation to Brazil or Thailand, and walk the street at night.

    I'm not making excuses for Trump if he did this, but merely looking at it with open eyes to the reality of what would happen if it came out. If Trump had a 47% approval rate, he would likely be removed. If his approval was more like 57%, he would likely survive. It really has nothing to do with the children or Clinton would have been removed over Juanita Broderick. Try to imagine the US against ISIS with Hillary or Sanders heading the military. Sexual abuse is a big problem, always has been. I'm 65 yo and hear from women my age every day about what was done to them as a child. I pray for people every day in my church that come to me with requests for prayer. The percentage of women that grew up with a step father abusing them would blow your head off. That's why I against gay adoption. The males adopt males, the females adopt females. Can you guess what is in store for those children, ...even as babies?

    One last observation,....if something like this came out, you would be astounded at the attitude, right here on FR, to protect Trump. You can be as upset at me all you want, I've just been down this road before and look at it with open eyes. What we want is not always what we get.

    I bet in 10 minutes I could find a site that shows Trump with a space alien and somebody quoting him saying she was much better than Melania in bed. Does that make it news because there is a website?

    Herman Cain had several women come out against him. When he bowed out, the women stopped. He too is a Christian man that would not have done what they said. Now are you going to believe that about Cruz and Cain, but pooh pooh the Trump women? Do you believe Trump was golden showering with prostitutes in Russia?

    Well, Mr. K, I was a Cruz supporter here and was banned for awhile for even speaking questions about Trump. If this was a blog searching for the truth, it didn't seem so at the time. I'm a conservative and a member here since Clinton and Waco. To be shouted down like a Dem was an eye opener for me. Getting Trump elected was and maybe still is the primary focus of FR. I voted for Trump and told them I was going to vote for Trump, but was still suspended for a time.

    Now to vote for Clinton, I would have to swallow all the crap I knew they were capable of, so it was an easy choice for me to vote for Trump. But I can tell you with my 65 years of experience that the shine will soon fall off Trump as it has for all the others. He was a Dem up until a couple of years ago. His kids couldn't even vote for their dad because they are STILL registered dems. Ivanka will work on her child care give away that we can't pay for. Trump just met with the unions. He's now talking about health care for everyone. I don't yet know where the shine is going to fall off, but it will come.

    The whole campaign, he bolstered the dreams of Christians while waving his rainbow flag.

    I've enjoyed my stint here with FR, but something happened awhile back and changed the atmosphere here. I've been a member here for a long time and have never been treated like I have for the last year. I figure I don't want to be a member of a conservative "Huffpost". It's Jim's site, not mine. If I'm to be muzzled here, fine. They made it plain that my opinions were not welcome here anymore.

    Now re read your post to me. Do you REALLY mean, after all that was done to get Trump elected, that you would rejoice that trash would come out on Trump? I was the one trying to get it exposed in the press and FR was saying to shut up and you tell me "Shame on you". I suppose I could print my OPUS and have 92 replies to not let the door hit my ass, but who really cares? This is a blog, not church. I loved Reagan, but did he have skeletons? Why did he leave Lebanon with his tail between his legs,...mistake! I still like Bush 43, but he definitely made mistakes. I don't expect Trump to walk on water, just do some of the stuff he promised. Does anyone think Pence would build a wall? Pence is a good man, but I think he smells of the old way. He would NEVER be involved in anything immoral, but would roll over for Pelosi thinking "Can't we all just get along?".

    If you supported Trump, you had to know what you were getting. It was all hanging out there. If you wanted a preacher, you should have supported Cruz. You had plenty of choices in the primary to pick a saint. After the primary, you punch Rep. That's the way of the world unless you are so unprincipled that you would vote for Hillary, sodomite baby killer that she is. (Romans 1:32) People feel superior when they say they are "Independent", but it really means they have no principles. If you would take Hillary and all that comes with that over Trump, sorry, I'm out. If Cruz will run in 2020, I will support him again. If he's picked for SCOTUS, fine, I'm good with that. If Cruz runs and loses, that the way politics works. But I have no illusions about Trump.

    I spoke about this before the election and was told basically to shut up because Trump was in on it. We have evidence that Clinton went down to the island 26 times mostly with Secret Service. I felt this would be a slam dunk for the Trump team. Never brought it up. Dershewitz( sp) was accused by eyewitnesses and skated. There are other names like an English Prince. So I posted here for someone to exploit it. I was told to drop it because Trump was involved.

    I'm not saying he was, I just didn't understand why it was swept under the rug during the campaign. The evidence for Clinton was right there in the open. seemed like a slam dunk to me.

    We home schooled our daughter for 11 of 12 years. Each year we would pray what we should do. After about 3-4 years, God told me "Why would you send your child to a place that God is not welcomed?" We send our children into places controlled by Satan and Babylon. They will be indoctrinated with foreign gods and lies. As we see today, children don't even know if they are male or female. They are confused over weather and politics. They sway like a reed in the wind, depending on the direction of the wind to know where to go. There is Truth and lies, Good and evil, and absolutes are everywhere. They aren't negotiable.

    My daughter socialized with other kids, kids at church, and kids in the neighborhood. She also socialized with young adults, and every other age group she was exposed to. Children in public school would fight over socializing with someone a year younger or older, and if forced, it would end in violence, usually on the younger person. My daughter is now able to relate to people twice her age and half her age seamlessly. She is a self starter and doesn't need to be forced to do beneficial things for herself. She is 32 now and lives on her own, has always worked, never was pregnant without a husband, no drugs, and is now a cop. Did I mention she's not in my basement?

    Idols, Carved Stone, Wood, and Hearts Exo 20:3 You shall have no other gods before Me. Exo 20:4 "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; Exo 20:5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, Exo 20:6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. Exo 20:7 "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

    Lev 19:12 And you shall not swear by My name falsely, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. If we look at the verses right around Lev 19:12, we see He is commanding that if we take His name that we act like we are His. If you call yourself a Christian, there should be evidence that you are a Christian. It’s not about cursing. There are plenty of verses in Scripture about a filthy mouth and profane language.. Lev_19:4 'Do not turn to idols, nor make for yourselves molded gods: I am the Lord your God. Lev_26:1 'You shall not make idols for yourselves; neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up for yourselves; nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it; for I am the Lord your God. Lev_26:30 I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars, and cast your carcasses on the lifeless forms of your idols; and My soul shall abhor you. Deu_29:17 and you saw their abominations and their idols which were among them--wood and stone and silver and gold); Deu_32:21 They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; They have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols. But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move them to anger by a foolish nation. Romans 10:19 refers to this verse and tells us it prophesied of the Jews being taken over by Gentiles and of the enslavement of Israel by Rome due to their idol worship. God takes this very seriously.

    Psa_31:6 I have hated those who regard useless idols; But I trust in the Lord. Psa_96:5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens. Psa_97:7 Let all be put to shame who serve carved images, Who boast of idols. Worship Him, all you gods. Psa_106:36 They served their idols, Which became a snare to them. Psa_106:38 And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood. Psa_115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, The work of men's hands. Psa_135:15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, The work of men's hands. Isa_2:8 Their land is also full of idols; They worship the work of their own hands, That which their own fingers have made. Isa_57:13 When you cry out, Let your collection of idols deliver you. But the wind will carry them all away, A breath will take them. But he who puts his trust in Me shall possess the land, And shall inherit My holy mountain." Jer_18:15 "Because My people have forgotten Me, They have burned incense to worthless idols. And they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways, From the ancient paths, To walk in pathways and not on a highway, Eze_6:4 Then your altars shall be desolate, your incense altars shall be broken, and I will cast down your slain men before your idols. Eze_6:5 And I will lay the corpses of the children of Israel before their idols, and I will scatter your bones all around your altars. Eze_6:6 In all your dwelling places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate, so that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, your idols may be broken and made to cease, your incense altars may be cut down, and your works may be abolished. Eze_6:9 Then those of you who escape will remember Me among the nations where they are carried captive, because I was crushed by their adulterous heart which has departed from Me, and by their eyes which play the harlot after their idols; they will loathe themselves for the evils which they committed in all their abominations.

    I’m sure many here are saying, “Boy, I’m glad I don’t worship any idols.” I would hope that none here would have some sort of statue they kneel before thinking they are connected to God somehow. Many, even today, kneel before statues of men and women thinking God will hear them. The God of the Bible, The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, has already given us that answer in the letters to Timothy. But each of us needs to take stock in just what we do believe. Have we carved out a God in our heads that accepts gay marriage? Do we have in the back of our minds that abortion is now not murder? Is that god we’ve made acceptable somehow to the God of the Bible? Is having sex outside of marriage somehow ok today because “everybody does it”? If God knew you from the foundation of the world, how is it you are just a blob of tissue until you take your first breath? If we still think God doesn’t care about babies, read Psalm 139. If we think God is ok with sodomy, read Leviticus 18:22-30. What we are doing is disagreeing with God and making up our own god that is sort of close to the God of the Bible, but more to our liking. You don’t have to have a carved stick hidden in a cubby hole in the den to be worshiping idols. How is it any different with women throwing their babies in to the fires of Moloch, and a woman having an abortion? What do we believe changed God’s mind about homosexual behavior from Sodom and Gomorrah to today? Yet whole denominations today are embracing gay marriage thinking God made a mistake. I can’t find one verse, not one, NT or OT, which says sodomy, is ok, yet here we are today. Many women today, even Christian women have had abortions. If you have repented, God is quick to forgive, but that means you must change your thinking also. You cannot continue to believe that abortion is somehow ok or you haven’t really repented, but are still making an excuse for something you regret. Romans 1:32 speaks to that. What we are doing is making and idol to put ahead of the God of the Bible. That is the textbook definition of an idol. Something we put ahead of God. God has given us instructions on what we should do and believe. It’s not vague, or impossible to figure out.

    1Co 10:14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 1Co 10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say. 1Co 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 1Co 10:17 For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread. 1Co 10:18 Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? 1Co 10:19 What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? 1Co 10:20 Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 1Co 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons. 1Co 10:22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?

    When we take Communion, we are worshiping God. We are partaking of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God. When we go to a church that believes in gay marriage, or we vote for someone that wants it legal, what are we doing? Are we not taking God’s name in vain and sacrificing our vote to a false image of a foreign god? It’s not necessary that we carve a sick and fall down before it to worship a false god. Spiritually speaking we have already bowed down our hearts to god’s that bear no resemblance to the God of the Bible. In God’s eye, there is only the God of the Bible, and Babylon. Satan has been trying from the beginning of time to confuse the Word of God, to change it, or to just lie about it.

    Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, Rom 1:19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. Rom 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, Rom 1:21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Rom 1:22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, Rom 1:23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Rom 1:24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, Rom 1:25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Rom 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Rom 1:27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; Rom 1:29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, Rom 1:30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Rom 1:31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; Rom 1:32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

    These people are changing evil to good and good to evil. You cannot make up your own doctrine and call it from God. The “lukewarm” Christians spoken of in Revelation 3:16 are what the church of today is becoming. God never changes and we can’t say “everybody does it”, or “Hey, it’s the 21st century”, and say we don’t have a different God than that found in the Bible. More and more we see a new doctrine that we don’t have to repent to be saved, Grace covers everything, and more freedom to believe what you want to believe. I believe that as the New Age religion evolves, the broad way is getting larger and larger. The narrow gate is the same as it’s always been.

    Younger Christians are being sold a bill of goods by the world that tells them that we are mean Pharisees that are too legalistic. Jesus didn’t come to do away with the Law, but to fulfill it. The Law is supposed to be written on our hearts now, not on tablets of stone, but it is still the Laws of God. By choosing to follow certain Laws and rebelling against others, you are still in rebellion and haven’t completely surrendered to Christ as Lord of your life.

    In Europe, some churches are reading verses from the Koran in their services. England is trying to decide what Koranic verses to read at the coronation of King Charles. I guess if we can accept abortion and sodomy, we can accept other Satanic teaching in church today. How far do we have to go to realize we no longer worship the same God Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob worshiped.

    Read Luke 14:26-33 God says to honor your mother and father and to love your wife so this must be speaking of something else. If you can’t put Christ first and believe and do what He says, then how do you get to call yourself Christian? Believing Christ is not optional. He hasn’t told anyone to believe what they want to believe.

    Joh 12:47 And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. Joh 12:48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him--the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.

    1Ki_18:21 And Elijah came to all the people, and said, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people answered him not a word. ---------------------------------------------

    The images of God we have carved out to worship vary all over the place, but one thing is certain, most don't resemble the God of the Bible. It shows how crazy we have become to argue over what "sex" God is.

    Reminds me of a story when I was about 17. I was adjusting the timing on my ‘67 Camero with the air cleaner off to get to the distributor in the back. I crawled up on the engine to get to it and then hit the throttle to test the advance. It popped back through the carb and caught my hair on fire. I lost my eyebrows and my hair was on fire and I didn’t know it till someone told me. I had to shave my head to get my girlfriend to kiss me. The smell was there for days.

    Luke 17:26 speaks of the "days of Noah". Much of what we know about that time is that man was continually evil. One thing we forget is the covenant God made with Noah was the rainbow. As Satan is a liar and counterfeiter, what better sign to counterfeit than the rainbow for sodomites. The very next verse speaks of Lot being rescued from Sodom.

    Leviticus 18:22-30 speaks of what God would do to the Hebrews that allowed homosexuality to be legal in the promised land. For me, these verses suggest homosexual sin could be the breaking point for God's patience with man. As Noah is a picture of the New Testament Rapture, IMO, we could be Raptured at any time now. We kill our babies as they did with Moloch and Baal. Fornication is the norm with our children and adultery is commonplace today. We all see lying and thievery is rampant. Just run down the list of blasphemy, pride, idol worship, envy, ect, and you see there is none left to condemn today. They call evil; good, and of course they call good; evil. We see people confess they are church going Christians, yet their church is now doing gay weddings and they spout "equality" on TV and call believers bigots. The acceptance of sodomites in polite society could very well be the last sin accepted by the earth to shun God.

    As Noah was told to get in the Ark 7 days before the first drop of rain fell, the true church will not feel one second of God's wrath on the "earth dwellers". Lot was removed from Sodom 3 days before the first brimstone fell. God always saves His remnant before catastrophe falls.

    The question is, are we ready to go? Do we look back as Lot's wife did? We must long for His coming, even if it means our children and loved ones aren't saved. We can't carve idols in our minds, of a god that is not in the Bible. Most of us have a homosexual somewhere in our circle of family and friends or a woman that has had an abortion. We cannot side with the loved one over the Word of God and think we worship the same God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The whole point of salvation is to stop rebelling against God. We either choose God or choose the world. God will NOT accept the double minded, or the lukewarm. The parable of the 10 virgins( Mat 25) will determine who goes in the Rapture. many think the foolish virgins are lost people. As virgins are the church, that means they are church members. They weren't found "doing" what Jesus told His people they must do to be His wife. The servants spoken of in following parables are still servants, not lost people, but some fell short of the Commandment to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love their neighbor as themselves. I keep hearing we are not under the Law anymore. While we are NOT under the OT Law, That Law is now covered by the commandment Jesus gave us and has written it on our hearts. If we love Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, we will read His Word, pray His will, follow His instruction, and be working for Him in everything we do. We cannot follow His will if we do not love our fellow man as we would love ourselves. Many call themselves Christian today that have taken the Savior's name in vain. Taking His name in vain doesn't mean cursing. There are plenty of verses that speak on a filthy mouth or coarse language, but when we call ourselves "Christians", we must honor our "Husband" as we carry His name. When we rebel against something God has written in His Word, we dishonor Him and curse ourselves. No one forces anyone to Be called Christian, but when we take His name, we should at least believe what He says is true.

    If we somehow believe that God has changed His mind since Sodom was burned to the ground, we are making up our own god and worshiping the wrong god. God changeth not.

    The data will not be on the Alexa, but in the cloud under your account. How much data can be stored in a couple of gigs of space?

    If the Alexa is "listening" for the command, "Alexa", can it not be transmitting ALL data to the cloud? Your Alexa is just another data collection device to feed info to Google, Amazon, or whoever the maker might be. I have NO doubt that the owner of the data is sifting your data to sell to someone else, also. Your Alexa is waiting for the command phrase to perform, but that has nothing to do with it listening to 100% of everything that is said.

    Ask yourself if it is connected to the internet all the time? Ask yourself if you believe if it is listening to every word that is said? Ask yourself if Google or Amazon uses data to generate money? What would you think if you were discussing a cruise with your spouse and the next thing you know you are covered with cruise adds on your phone and laptop? Have you ever looked at something on Amazon or Ebay and the next time you go to Drudge, there is that item with a button to go to on Amazon or Ebay?

    You have to look a little deeper than just saying the Alexa command and the device activating. You cannot deny it is listening to everything that is said. Why else would cops insists they get access to Alexa data about a murder?

    You have to ask yourself, would Bezos place a microphone in your home and not listen to it? Does he put cookies on your device to phone home right now? I've been told I have a tin foil hat several times, but I can tell you that later, it comes out I was right. I worked for SBC for 30 years and I knew years before it came out that the government was saving meta data on callers. I put the circuits in to make the fiber ring go to the government so they could break in to any conversation they wanted. It was discussed years ago that test centers were going to be moved to Mexico to fire us to save money. That was decided against because they could control our phone traffic from their government administrations. The next thing you know the same type circuits were routed to Virginia. Why would a Texas company be sending their data to Virginia? A few years later, Snowden happened. Data is the most valuable commodity today for commerce and governments. Amazon is no different. I would put it at about 90% that Amazon is storing all sounds the Alexa hears in the cloud. They would be foolish not to. For goodness sake, you car stores where you go, how fast you go, and saves it for people other than you to look at. "Smart" TV's, Toasters, Refrigerators, washers and dryers, will all soon be hooked to the internet. You are giving up everything for just a small convenience. Is it really worth it to have a refrigerator that will make a grocery list for you and listen to everything you say. How about getting health care from the government and the ice box tells on you that you ate ice cream last night? I look for any day now your cashier at Walmart to refuse to sell you ice cream because ObamaCare is paying for your Metformin. Their registers are connected to a network to order new inventory for Walmart, but could easily be monitored by the government or someone Walmart was being paid to allow to access. Data is a resource to be bought and sold.

Also Malwarebytes installs with the pay prog for about 30 days of nags, but eventually settles down.

    Another thing, I don't use Edge. IE is on your machine, you just have to find it and make a pin to taskbar Icon. If you can't find it, download it. Most of my surfing is on Pale Moon, a Fire Fox knock off. Depending on where I'm going and what I'm doing, I use Chrome, Fire Fox, Pale Moon, or IE. Pale Moon works good most places for me. I use IE and Real Player Download to download video easiest. You don't have to cut an paste with it, just click download and it works most places, not just Youtube.

    I tend to look at things in a spiritual manor. I can say without a doubt that this kid is possessed by demons. You can just look at his eyes and see he has something telling him what to do. He said he thought about it and almost changed his mind, but did it anyway. He has no idea about the gravity of what is about to happen to him. He doesn’t look like a tough guy to me. I think if a doctor looked at him he might make a case for some sort of mental illness, but the kid still just speaks like he’s possessed by something speaking things to him that he believes makes sense.

    I like your rules, but disagree with the FBI statistics. I watched a autopsy about 30 years ago on a homeless man while a medic in the military. He was shot in the head close enough to burn his hair, but it wasn't obvious why he was dead when we first got there. An X Ray showed the bullet about 2 inches into his brain high and to the rear of his ear. It was deduced that the guy was alive for several hours after he was shot. I put the .25 cal in the same bucket as the .32.

    Later I was GIVEN a .32 because I certainly would have bought one. I went out to the country to shoot it and stood about 20 ft from a light pole. I hit the pole about 3 out of 5 shots and all that hit were stuck on the surface of the wood. It's possible that I hit the pole more and the lead fell off the pole. I would rather have a .22lr than a .32 or .25. A .380 is the least I would carry for self protection.

    I agree that a hole of any size beats no hole, but a .32 needs to be within 5 ft and I'm not sure the guy would be knocked back with 3-4 shots.

    Your mileage may vary, but I just had a bad history with .32. If you were going to carry for self protection, a cheap .380 is no more money than a .32. I would even have to weigh a .32 if it were free. Why carry anything? A sharp stick might be better.

    I'm not sure you are right. From what I'm hearing, Alexa listens to EVERYTHING, and uploads it to the cloud. If you mentioned something in passing in range of it's hearing, it's recorded. The only time it responds is when you say Alexa, with a request. It still has everything you have said even if you weren't using it for a task. Amazon says it gets the data to serve you better. If you are talking about a gun, they may connect you with Cabella's.

    There is about to be a big push for refrigerators, washers and dryers, and many other appliances to do the same, so every house eventually will have this in their homes, AND CARS. I heard a talking head say, you mean I have to put the laundry in myself, but just speak to it to start the wash? She seemed perturbed that it would cost more but wouldn't put the clothes in for her. In a few years, it won't cost more and might even be required.

    There comes a point where common sense should take over and you just save your money and push the button yourself. I've already commented that I can't believe someone would buy an $80k automobile and then let it drive itself. I'll wager most people would get in the car and freak out if they let go of the controls and were going over 30 mph. Who wants a Tesla that goes 0-60 in 3 seconds and let a computer drive it? I can just imagine a driver yelling at his computer to floor board it to beat the idiot at the stoplight. Some cars won't even have steering wheels. We already have boxes under the seat that watch and record everything you do, including your GPS.

    I'll be giving a message this weekend about "idolatry". I assume the only people worshiping statues anymore are Catholic, and most have heard the sermons on money worship and others, but I want to get people to think about worshiping a god they have "carved" out in their minds. If you worship a god that allows sodomy or abortion, then you worship a god that isn't in the Bible. Making up doctrine to suit your emotions is no different than carving a stick and worshiping it. Fornication is still fornication even though it's the 21st century and "everybody does it". If man passes a law legalizing abortion and sodomy, we, as Christians, are required to adhere to the morals stated in Scripture.

    How many times have you heard someone say, "If your God sends my homosexual brother to hell, then I don't want any part of your God." The homosexual sends themselves to hell, Not God. We were ALL going to Hell before Jesus came. We MUST be watchful that we don't fall for false doctrine disguised as "Christ Like" doctrine. If a sodomite refuses to surrender to God, then they pronounce sentence on themselves. The Scriptures state that we will be judged by "The Word" of God. Since Scripture represents Jesus,( John 1:1) then we can use Scripture for teaching, reproof, and correction. God changeth not, ergo Scripture doesn't change.

    If you claim to follow Christ and make up some false doctrine, you have taken the Lord's name in vain. If my wife goes to the beer joint with another man and still calls herself my wife, she is soiling my name she took at our marriage. You can't worship a false god and call yourself Christian. God clearly stated that sodomy is an abomination and abortion is murder. Without repentance, you will be before your Lord and He will say, "I never knew you". Don't allow your emotions to lie to you and say this is what Jesus would do when He clearly stated He wouldn't. The god you are worshiping if you believe God changed His mind on Sodom and Gomorrah doesn't exist.

    Just as a further example of this, many churches in Europe are now reading Koranic verses in their "Christian" churches. They are discussing what Islamic verses will be read at "King Charles" coronation in England. This is calling evil, good; and good, evil. Isa 4:1 speaks about 7 women( the churches in Rev 2-3) that eat their own food( make up their own doctrine) and wear their own garments( self righteousness), but they want to be called Christians( as opposed to Satan worshipers) to avoid reproach.

    ..."Where are all our Patriotic country singers?"....

    I thought of that too, but I think People from New York don't think that way. If it's not Kardashians or Beonce, they don't think it's hip enough. The people that voted him in drink beer and listen to CW music. I pretty much listen to contemporary Christian music only now. I'm sure Charile Daniels band would play and a few others, but the left would just say it was a "B" lister over the top racist 80 year old was all he could get to sing the Devil went Down to Georgia. Trump is fighting a losing battle if he thinks he can go up against the MSM and then the entertainment industry and get a fair shake.

    If it were me,....I would put up about 12 Christian groups between some well know preachers and dare the MSM to say something and ask what do you have against God? They can't black ball Christians and God more than they already do.

    Another thing would be to, as soon as his hand comes off the Bible, have an aid hand Speaker Ryan a 3 inch binder and tell him to get started on this and there will be another one at 10pm that night. In the first binder would be the call up of the Nat Gd to go to the border and revocation of Executive Orders.

    I agree with you. They act on our ignorance. Ask anyone you know what the Quran says. They won't have a clue. They are busy listening to clerics of all stripes saying we all worship the same god.( even the pope)

    Any cursory knowledge of the Bible would recognize Satan authored the Quran. Hindu's have thousands of gods. What is similar about that? The effort Mohamed went to to make the Quran similar to the Bible was to fool people into thinking it was a legitimate religion. The giveaways come when they deny the deity of Jesus. They deny he even died on the cross to explain why he was seen after the Crucifixion. They have Adam and Eve, the Garden, Moses, and many more similarities. The treatment of Jesus breaks the similarities. There is no release from the law and no grace. There is no eternal security. When they die, it's a crap shoot if they make it or not. That's why they murder people to guarantee a place in paradise.

    People today don't even know what the Bible says, let alone the Quran. I'm sure if they did, there would be less cooperation with Muslims, ergo the title is true to a certain extent. "Fear" is a little over the top, but it sounds better than "Concern".

    BTW, do a word search on “earth dwellers” and see what you get. We are “aliens” here. Sons of men cannot go to heaven, but we have been given the “right” to become “Sons of God” Sons of God are created by God. That would be angels, good and bad, Adam and Eve, Jesus, and Christians. God is Spirit and we must be born of the Spirit to be Sons of God.

    I have a theory but I don't like to talk much about it because it always starts a flame war and I'm too lazy to answer more than a couple. Go back to Gen 6 and notice the " Sons of God" mated with human women. I don't want to start an argument but the Sons spoken of here are fallen angels. Forget the sons of Seth because they are sons of men. Just give to to me for the cause of discussion. God soon after flooded the whole world to kill everyone. Remember Noah was found perfect before God, but also found grace from Him. If perfect, why need grace? His genes were clean. God made several demands, especially from Saul to kill every man woman and child in a city. It is obvious that God found something wrong with the DNA of some people. Maybe this is a "mark" that God knows about and doesn't want in heaven. Remember, the challenge was already made in the garden to Satan that the seed of the woman would defeat Satan. Satan was busy always trying to break the line of Jesus to make God a liar. Having a corrupt DNA line would do it. Pharaoh killed all he babies trying to kill Moses and another attempt was made on Jesus.

    I believe there are some that will NEVER accept Jesus because it's just not in their DNA. They swing more to evil and Satan than people that have bypassed the genetic line of the fallen angels. Just a theory, but it might explain a lot.

    If God is God, it seems natural for me that He knows those that will come to Him from the foundation of the world. never mind the obvious verses that state plainly that we are predestined, there are other verses that say similar things. Rev 6:10-11 comes to mind. If God knows the day and hour Jesus was to die on the cross, does He not know His own people and when they will come to Him? It's all planned out, it's been written down, and will happen just as it is written. If there was a "plan B", would that not mean God isn't God? The statement that Jesus made, "I am the Truth, The Way, and The Life" is literally true. When Jesus said "Lazarus is dead" in Luke 11:14 just after He told them Lazarus sleeps, which was true? Did Jesus lie? That's the reason Lazarus was left for 4 days and was stinking when Jesus chose to come "wake" him up. The Truth IS Jesus, not whether Lazarus was dead or not.

    People have fretted for some reason for centuries whether or not we are predestined to go to heaven or not. The Truth says we are "given" to the Father and He will not lose one of us. When we are "given" is up for discussion, but Scripture clearly says we were predestined.

    Now OTOH, the parable .....

    Luk 11:5 And He said to them, "Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves; Luk 11:6 for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him'; Luk 11:7 and he will answer from within and say, 'Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you'? Luk 11:8 I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs. Luk 11:9 "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Luk 11:10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

    These verses speak of a Christian witnessing to a lost brother and the friend is praying to God to give Him 3 loaves, The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. God has shut the door and His children are in bed. However, because the friend asked, He arose and gave him what he wanted. Now was the friend predestined or not? The God of the Bible would know the man would ask, and be ready to grant his prayer of salvation to his friend. Does our God know who will knock and seek? IMO, yes.

    Just another example, Noah preached repentance for 75 to 120 years, depending on what you believe, but no one went into the Ark but Noah and family. When Noah entered the Ark, it was 7 days till the rain started. Did anyone go in with him? Did anyone build their own boat to weather the storm? Clearly God either knew no one would come, or He controlled the people that wouldn't come.

    One thing to keep in mind while pondering these subjects is, God has NO time. He is the "I Am". He sees the beginning from the end. He knows the hour and minute of your birth and death. Now, does he predestine you, or does He just know the ending? It's the same result either way. He will not destroy the earth until all His children are in heaven with Him. Every last one. He knows who they are. Several verses speak about Jesus not losing one the Father has given Him. He already knows who you are whether you have repented or not. I was 43 when I became born again. Now that I look back, I can see God working in my life when I wasn't even living for Him, even to the point of saving my life when I shouldn't have lived to give me time to repent.

    I now ponder if the Holy Spirit is irresistible? If not, what took me so long to repent? I've come to believe He knew when I would come to Him and used circumstances to build my faith the way He wanted it. It's all about Jesus, otherwise we would boast. Even the measure faith we have is a gift from Him. We are empty, dead vessels and everything comes from Him. How could we every think we had anything to do with anything?

    How much skill does it take to watch porn all day and steal office supplies? I’ll bet good money we could cut 10% of the workforce and 10% of their salaries and we wouldn’t notice. I hope Trump looks in to farming out a bunch of gubmint salaries to people that work for half that much. Why pay $60k to file papers and run a copy machine? Whole agencies could be gutted if we tried.

    When I was about 12, I rode my Sting Ray bike with ape hanger bars down to Sears and bought a Mosin Nagant for $12. That was my deer rifle until it was stolen about 7 years later. It was accurate, but kicked like a mule with a steel butt plate. I rode home on the main drag in Texas City Texas with a rifle slung over my shoulder. Try to imagine a 12 yo with a rifle riding a bike down Main Street today. At the Army Navy store I could have bought a M1 Garand for $20-$30, depending on condition. 7mm Jap and Carcano’s were as low as $5. German 8mm were more money, but the American 30.06 was what sold the most. If I could go back with a little more money, the Garands and 30.40 Krags would get my money. I have a Garand for $600 about 20 years back, but have never found a good specimen of the Krag for a decent price. I’ve always loved the action of the Krag, but most have been cut up and cut off. The ones that haven’t been are just waaaay too much money.
