  • Mormons and Psychologists Burn Their Brains

    The article is based upon this article from ScienceDaily.com: This is your brain on God: Spiritual experiences activate brain reward circuits

    ScienceDaily.com reports when it ran these experiments by Mormons:

    "When our study participants were instructed to think about a savior, about being with their families for eternity, about their heavenly rewards, their brains and bodies physically responded," says lead author Michael Ferguson, who carried out the study as a bioengineering graduate student at the University of Utah.

    Heavenly rewards?

    May I be so bold as to suggest that many, especially Mormons, misunderstand the Christian gospel in this area of "rewards?"

    Right after John 3:16...comes these two verses: 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. (John 3:18-19)

    IOW, God already has judged our sin. The verdict has already been rendered...and the punishment was taken out upon Christ on the cross.

    That's the Christian gospel: That we don't have to to wonder about our eventual destination. 1 John 5:11-13 also expresses how one can have assurance of salvation. (And in John 3:36 and 5:24, Jesus expresses eternal life as something we have -- present tense -- not will have...future tense). The reason for that is because when Jesus Christ defined eternal life, He defined it as “knowing” (a relationship) between His Father and Himself and His people.

    We need to ask ourselves: What is the basis of whether or how God will forgive our personal sins?

    I think we tend to "miss the boat" in misunderstanding two dimensions of judgment: One dimension is our sin nature and our individual acts of sin--including our sins of omission. The other dimension is our works.

    We can't exchange the two. For our sin, Heavenly Father fully judged Jesus on the cross (as I said; this is past tense). When Jesus said "It is finished" on the cross, He used a phrase that in His day was a financial phrase meaning, "paid in full." Our debt -- our sin -- was paid in full. If we try to pay for our sin/atonement, Heavenly Father rejects it as being laced with unrighteousness (Is. 64:6).

    And as Judge, both the Father and Jesus could claim, “that's double jeopardy” if we try to pay for what Jesus already paid for on the cross.

    But when people talk about God judging the stewardship of our works in the future, they are correct. Note this passage:

    By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's WORK. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; HE HIMSELF WILL BE SAVED, but only as one escaping through the flames. (1 Cor. 3:10-15)

    Do we see that last sentence? Even if our work is burned up, we can "suffer loss" in heaven -- yet, Paul assures us that "he himself WILL BE saved." (Paul goes on to describe that like somebody pulled out of a burning building at the last second...by Jesus Christ the Deliverer and Rescuer).

    So, our works will get quite a "grilling" of judgment from God -- future tense. But Paul makes it clear in this passage that even when our measured works burn up as nothing -- as God's fiery judgment takes a match to them like fuel, we ourselves "will still be saved." (1 Cor. 3:15)

    So the righteousness of Jesus is our free pass into heaven. (1 Cor. 1:30). Entrust your life to Him (that is more than just mouthing a few words). But simultaneously, be prepared that once you get there based solely upon your faith in Christ, that He will take a fine-toothcomb to our works -- and judge them. And that it's possible to still become saved -- and still "suffer loss." (None of us should want to suffer such loss in heaven -- whatever that turns out to be). If anybody's shooting for trying to show God how "worthy" they are, they are worshiping the wrong God. (The word "worthy" is tied to "worship"; and we are not to either worship or "worthship" ourselves). Our value and worth was shown by Jesus at the cross. He died for us. We are only "worthy" in Him. 'Tis NONE of it is of ourselves.

    On top of that, Jesus says we need to be perfect (Matt. 5:48). And if we break one part of the law, we are guilty of all of it (book of James). Therefore we fall short. Our self-worth is never enough. Our only hope is to have our sin be judged according to the perfection of Jesus Christ, which is substituted on our behalf. That's why Paul says Jesus is OUR Righteousness. (1 Cor. 1:30)

    The article is based upon this article from ScienceDaily.com: This is your brain on God: Spiritual experiences activate brain reward circuits

    First, let's look @ the assumption headline & the assumptive study:

    That this was somehow measuring THE "God" -- versus "religious feelings"...which, when dealing cults like Mormonism...is worlds apart.

    ScienceDaily.com reports when it ran these experiments by Mormons:

    "When our study participants were instructed to think about a savior, about being with their families for eternity, about their heavenly rewards, their brains and bodies physically responded," says lead author Michael Ferguson, who carried out the study as a bioengineering graduate student at the University of Utah.

    Of course, they (these former Mormon missionaries) physically responded!

    The Mormon false narrative that families will automatically be eternally together would of course trigger an emotional reaction!

    Jesus, btw, set the record straight on this:

    51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52 From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” (Luke 12:51-54)

    Indeed, millions of families are united in Jesus, in His Gospel. But many more, historically & otherwise, are not!

    Heavenly rewards? [I'll cover this on next post]

    So in theory, the Republikants could throw the election to Hillary. That may be her best chance of pulling this off. They're already compromised.

    Yes, many likely are compromised already...Dem operatives have likely also researched how and when. (See last half of post #86)

    Word on the web is they have 15 votes that will not vote for Trump

    (And some, likely even most, of these are electors in states that voted blue in November, anyway)

    This is like phone push-polling, where brief surveys are taken, and then focusing on a key issue or two where the candidate is @ variance w/what they believe. The thing is with push-pulling is that you usually get 99% of people who are either...
    (a) already committed to vote for a certain candidate
    ...or (b) already vote according to certain pet issues...
    ...or (c) already obligated to vote by party

    With these electors the overwhelming # of them having the same kind of impulse as (c) -- sense of pre-existing obligation, especially since unlike ballot box voting, you are publicly exposed as to how you voted.

    Push-polling only works if you are able to generate extremely high call volumes and actually get people to take the survey. In the same way, this group is NOT getting access to the given electors, & is not able to be persuasive because of that.

    But it won't surprise me if there's some last-minute bullying, some last-minute confrontational bribing (or intensified threats of violence)...better believe that each elector has/is been/being researched to the nth degree & that just before they go vote, many may be confronted with something uncovered about their past/present.

    The risk for these corrupt connivers is to have some of these electors expose their forthcoming behind-the-scenes shenanigans, tainting the Dems even more.

    Don't be surprised if more turncoat electors pop up than was thought possible

    I haven't looked up many statutes/codes state-by-state, but this one in Florida is an example of corruption against a "public servant" (which an elector is, after all):

    Title XLVI CRIMES Chapter 838 BRIBERY; MISUSE OF PUBLIC OFFICE View Entire Chapter 838.021 Corruption by threat against public servant.—

    (a)  Influence the performance of any act or omission that the person believes to be, or that the public servant represents as being, within the official discretion of the public servant, in violation of a public duty, or in performance of a public duty.
    (b)  Cause or induce the public servant to use or exert, or procure the use or exertion of, any influence upon or with any other public servant regarding any act or omission that the person believes to be, or that the public servant represents as being, within the official discretion of the public servant, in violation of a public duty, or in performance of a public duty.
    The 2016 Florida Statutes

    Law enforcement agencies better be ready for what's likely coming down the pike this month...My guess is that the Democrat operatives, if they "have the goods on any given elector," will wait until very late right up against the elector vote to take place to (a) attempt to avoid an early scandal exposure of their latest corruption; and (b) get the most bang for their vote-peddling...the shock of an elector being confronted could translate immediately into an altered vote.

    Protest all you want but on your own time. Some have not learned that.

    My belief is I understand those who don't want to compartmentalize their own convictions. (Likewise, too many Christians are already culturally handcuffed from living out their faith in the public square).

    So, I say:

    "OK, if you're a college band member or a football player in uniform, and you want to go public with your convictions with that uniform on, fine. Proceed. Not going to stop you. Just don't think there won't be repercussions. If you're a Tim Tebow & you bend to one knee & pray on the field, they'll be media repercussions. Your reputation may be impacted, which in turn, could effect your career. Does that mean 'Don't pray on the field?' Nope. Does that mean 'Never pray publicly?' Nope. It does mean, however, 'be prepared to pay the price.'"

    "Likewise, you can't be a football quarterback & run your own play without including the other 10 on the field. Nor can you be a football or basketball player who elects to wear a uniform that either looks like or is too close to the other team jersey. Boundaries exist for various reasons. Some are common sense; some militate vs. common sense. No matter. Not everything Martin Luther King did was 'within the law.' No matter. He was willing to pay the price, even when the law was unjust. So bend the knee to yourself and not the flag? Fine. Just be willing to pay the price, then, of your public convictions. And don't be surprised if you're booted from the band for a week or more."

    All this kneeling junk reminds me of the John Wooden/Bill Walton sagas. Bill had grown a ponytail and John had told him to get it it cut. Bill said it was his right and Coach told him that was his right to decide who plays or not. Bill had it cut that day. Another time Bill wanted to make a political statement at a game and Wooden told him it was nice having him on the team and wished him luck in the future.

    I think coaches (& teams/schools) can certainly set clearly demarcations on most things...but doesn't mean it's an absolute tow-the-line.

    Let me give three examples...two from this NFL season & one from a college football team over 45 years ago:

    (1) Avery Williamson of the Titans NFL won't fine Titans' Avery Williamson for 9/11 cleats

    Williamson wore his customized red, white and blue cleats include stars, an American flag-inspired logo and the words “Never Forget” printed on the heel, despite the fact that the NFL had previously told all NFL players 'no':

    NFL says no to 9/11 tribute cleats, police unions offers to pay fine

    Even if Williamson had had to pay a fine, at least that-s a "win-win" situation for both sides: A player could stick to "free expression" convictions; the league can stick to setting & enforcing boundaries.

    (2) Dallas Cowboys & decals on helmets after assassinations of Dallas officers: NFL says no to Cowboys helmet decal honoring fallen officers

    (3) Participants in Black 14 incident share views

    In this last case, 14 black football players for the 1969 University of Wyoming wanted to wear black armbands for a single game...the upcoming game vs. BYU. They were denied the request once. When they asked a second time, they were dismissed from the team.

    They didn't even carry out a plan worth the dismissal.

    Why the armbands? Because per Mormon theology, blacks could not be priests in the Mormon church in 1969. [This was true up thru 1978]. Hence, if you couldn't be part of the priesthood (which is every male Mormon 12 & up), then you were not eligible for living forever with God the Father in the Mormon heaven (per Mormon theology, that is).

    I vigorously disagreed with the Wyoming coach kicking those 14 players off. Now had they wore the armbands after the coach told them "no," they could have chose to suspend each for a game. But to be kicked off the team for merely making a request? No. Definite overreach!

  • Voters Outside Debate Venue Let Kaine Know They're Not Happy With His Abortion Flip Flop

    Yup...

    How many Catholics & Catholic leaders would overlook a politician saying, "I'm personally against trafficking, but why can't we trust women to make their decisions in conjunction with their partner-pimp?"????

    That's not only the parallel of what Kaine announced to the world last night, but it's also what Catholics & Catholic leaders are tolerating daily!!!

    Read this article:

    Kaine and Pence clash over abortion in vice presidential debate (Today's Catholic Herald)

    I read it & concluded "This is how a secular media outlet" might try to "straightforwardly" quote Kaine & then cite Kaine's digs vs. Trump.

    This is NOT what I would call a "Christian" dissection of last night's debate in ANY way, shape or form.

    This is an excellent sample/example that reinforces how today's American cultural Catholicism is in a state of apostasy!!!

    Good to see ISIS communicating "on que": I mean, there's only one "USA security-let's-take-on-ISIS" ticket running.

    The timing couldn't be better to drive voters to Pence & the other guy's who going along for the White House tour.

    As soon as any church gets to be about itself, it becomes weak.

    ITself?

    What? The church is simply some impersonal institution?

    (That's NOT the Church of the New Testament!)

    The true underlying Greek NT term for "church" (ecclesia, also spelled ekklesia) "called-out ONES"...meaning the true church is personal flesh & blood -- not brick & mortar, NOT an institution; an organism, not an organization.

    Bottom line here: There's no PERCEIVED sense of accountability for Kaine's maverick abortion-mindedness -- ranging from his personal priest to Catholic hierarchy-ists in Virginia to the average Catholic voter on the street.

    It's seemingly: Ho-hum. Another Catholic pro-abortion advocate who's on a national soapbox promoting abortion? Oh.

    After last night's debate, I think I began to realize how the race is likely to come down to Catholics.

    And that's sad.

    Because I haven't seen the Roman Catholic church or Roman Catholics rise up in provocation that a candidate representing himself as "Catholic" (Kaine) was so vehemently advocating abortion on national TV last night...

    and I've YET to see any sign of public objection by Roman Catholics or the church they represent!!!

    This article was written prior to debate, where "Catholic" Kaine perhaps went his deepest in advocating that women abort their babies!

    Kaine attempted to filter abortion as an issue where "why can't we trust women?"

    For a LOT of moms of pre-natal babies, it's actually not something they even feel they have a choice over...given that if they a minor, their parent may be coercing/forcing them to have one. Same thing with young women...a partner is often coercing/forcing them to have one.

    So can we "trust"...
    ...men who won't be "responsible" for their baby-making actions? (No)
    ...a man who may be trying to cover up incest/abuse upon a minor? (No)

    No money involved

    The radio station itself is losing sponsorship $.

    And East Carolina Pirate fans realize that if a station is going to take a one-week boycott stand costing them $, then perhaps, they, too, could boycott a home game.

    That translates into less tickets sold; less concessions bought; no parking $.

    It also translates into riled-up university donors who may transfer donations elsewhere.

    PLENTY of $ involved!

    This is spreading not only to bands but among bands: SMU had 5 band members do the same thing in a loss to TCU; North Carolina State had 2 members do the same thing in Wake Forest game.

    BTW, the article cites @ the end the East Carolina chancellor supporting the knee-benders; however per another media source -- The NewsObserver ( Radio station refuses to broadcast ECU game after band protest), "On Monday, three ECU officials, including Band Director William Staub, seemed to change course, saying officials had met with the band and that 'protests of this nature by the Marching Pirates will not be tolerated moving forward.'”

    What I find interesting is I've reviewed about a dozen nation-wide articles on this topic...and only two of them bothered to mention East Carolina University's change of attitude toward the band students.

    Most media outlets are seemingly intentionally leaving that out of the story!

    I say, let ANY band member do what he/she wants out of sync with the rest of the band members in ANY performance, including play out of tune. It doesn't mean the given university has to continue having them don a uniform or play in public representing the university. I mean if "free expression" is king then why bother with matching uniforms? Why bother playing in sync? Why bother marching in sync? They could just all do what they want like the spoiled individualists they seemingly desire to be.

    This is totally about his getting out of the embassy. He doesn’t give a hoot about our election.

    He's sentenced himself to embassy incarceration.

    He'd have to negotiate more than simply avoiding extradition.

    The Liberals have a bounty on his head. He needs an identity exchange and a cave in plain sight to duck the targets on his back.
