98 … still need rain
Still pouring here… supposed to get a half inch.
Think we got that already.
CR@P!!! WON’T CONNECT!!!!! 😡
shutting down, restarting.
I was floored by that series…..meshing church and state TREASON!
WORSE THAN THAT,
IT IS MORALLY BANKRUPT.
THEIR “ORDINATIONS” AND “PREACHINGS” ARE THE MURMURINGS OF HELL,
AND THEIR RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES ARE LITTLE MORE THAN VEILED WITCHCRAFT……THE NEW TESTAMENT, OR “NEW COVENANT” WAS WRITTEN FOR 2 REASONS;
THE FIRST IS TO LEAD A MAN TO OBEY GOD. CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, YOU DO HAVE TO “DO SOMETHING” TO BE SAVED.
AND I WILL ASK THE NAYSAYER THIS…..
“BAPTISM IN THE NAME OF THE LORD”
IS THAT OF GOD, OR OF MAN? AND DOES IT REQUIRE THAT YOU “DO” SOMETHING”?
THE SECOND REASON IT WAS WRITTEN IS TO TEACH HIS PEOPLE……….
THE APOSTLE PAUL LIKENED THE FAITH TO “RUNNING A RACE”…
1Co 9:22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
1Co 9:23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
1Co 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
SOMETIMES IT IS WORK. SOMETIMES IT TAKES TIME AND PATIENCE. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH WEALTH IN THE WORLD TO DISSUADE ME FROM TRYING TO PERSUADE MAN TO PURSUE FREEDOM THROUGH LOVE AND JUSTICE FOR THEIR FELLOW MAN. ESPECIALLY A FELLOW AMERICAN……
THERE IS NO AUTHORITY TO JUST “PRAY THE SINNERS PRAYER” TO BE SAVED ANYWHERE IN THE WHOLE BLASTED BIBLE. A N Y W H E R E……………
LIKE I HAVE SAID BEFORE. IT ALWAYS SEEMED IN MY LIFE, SPEAKING OF SUCCESS,
THAT IT WASN’T “WHAT YOU KNOW”, THAT MADE YOU SUCCESSFUL
IT WAS, “WHO YOU KNOW”
This is right along the lines of “The Family.”
This one, Katie?
No. This one. https://www.netflix.com/Title/80063867
This is only the trailer.
Great flick, if you haven’t seen it. 🙂
Martin Luther was amenable to the jews in the beginning.
Then he actually did some serious research on them… and discovered the TRUTH about the filthy maggots.
‘they’ bank on ignorance
Eskimo: If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?
Priest: No, not if you did not know.
Eskimo: Then why did you tell me?
Great broadcast! Thank you Henry.
You are welcome. 🙂
And it’s going to explode in their faces soon!
excellent hour of broadcast…. again
More perspective on religion:
“All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.”
— Thomas Paine
“Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction”
— Blaise Pascale
“Hence today I believe I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator”
— Adolph Hitler
“Religion is a group of scam artists that sell the calming idea that your body is a temple of God, while your mind belongs to them.”
— Jose Carrillo
“Religion can never reform mankind, because Religion is slavery.”
— Robert G. Ingersoll
“To sit alone with my conscience will be judgment enough for me.”
— Charles William Stubbs
MY FAVORITE WAS PAINE, ABOUT “NATIONAL RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS”.
To lighten things up…
“If organized religion is the opium of the masses, then disorganized religion is the marijuana of the lunatic fringe.”
— Kerry Thornley
“Everything is what it is because it got that way.”
— D’arcy Thompson
Faux news was disabling the comments section when they had Lindsey Graham on giving his scripted lines promoting red flag corporate policies. You can tell that they are getting really uneasy if not outright panicky over their total loss of face and open betrayal.
Five-hour mini-series. Oh my. Okay, I will somehow make the time.
On the editing of the Trump press conference: Should not the whole nation be outraged at such censorship? Outraged at how bold the communism grows? Trouble is communism has so many disguises, so many different degrees – some just don’t recognize it. I guess the litmus test to determine what is or is not communistic would be if it infringes on The Bill of Rights. Pretty simple.
Henry, when you said, “They ran into a smarter crowd than they had ever contemplated they would,” it made me think of how fortunate I am to be able to learn from you and so many smart Trenchers here at the site. My mind has never been this stretched.
Seems we could do with two national lists: The Smart List and The Stupid List, putting the question to ALL American Nationals: WHICH LIST ARE YOU ON? – PICK ONE. It might make people consider what they actually know. But I guess there would have to be a third list, for those who “know” but use their advantage to lie, steal, corrupt and kill. They won’t willingly sign their names.
Smart is survival. Smart knows that what can happen to another can happen to him or herself. Smart is unchained and ruled by NO ONE. I will watch the frikkin’ mini-series.
