[A conversation that would supposedly happen between an exorsist and a possessed person]

Demon: I'm not coming out...
Exorcist: What are your legal grounds?
Demon: I don't have to tell you anything...
Exorcist: Yes you do, I command you to tell me what your legal grounds are in Jesus' name.
Demon: Stop saying that name...
Exorcist: Tell me in Jesus' name...
Demon: Shut up
Exorcist: The Lord Jesus rebukes you...now tell me your legal grounds
Demon: all right, all right, just stop saying that name...I've been in his family for 6 generations...his ancestors were lazy and I've kept them lazy for 6 generations
Exorcist: Well, I break the curse of laziness going back 10 generations on both sides of his family in Jesus' name
Demon: Nooooooooooo!!!!!! You can't do that...I've worked so hard...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! (lunges at exorcist while cursing and gritting his teeth...eyes are bloodshot and bulging)
Exorcist: I BIND YOU IN JESUS' NAME...You don't have permission to move a muscle...I break every curse of laziness on both sides of his family going back 10 generations in Jesus' name.
Demon: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! NOOOOOOO!!!! NOOOOO!!!! We're going to kill him first and then you!!!!
Exorcist: No you aren't, I cancel those plans in Jesus' name. Now make your way to where the Lord Jesus is commanding you to go.
Demon: NO, I refuse!!!
Exorcist: Okay, angels, show this demon who's boss. Let's sprinkle the blood of Jesus on all his family lines in both directions...through his ancestors and his descendants. Let's also clear up the lines of his siblings and their descendants.
Demon: NOOOOOOOOOO!!! You can't...I can't believe you did that...GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR...
Exorcist: For good measure, let's hit slothfulness as well in Jesus' name
Demon: You *@@#%*!!!! (attempts to lunge at exorcist again but stops cold in his tracks as the Holy Spirit is holding him in place) You are so lucky those angels are holding me...grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Exorcist: Enough with your nonsense, it's time to go...I loose the consuming fire of the Holy Spirit to consume you.
Demon: NOOOOOOO!!!!! AAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!! (Demon leaves, victim slouches in the chair or onto the floor totally limp)
Exorcist: Father, I ask that you now restore this person and reverse the effects of the sin in his life.
Victim: What just happened?
Exorcist: How do you feel?
Victim: I feel so light...like a weight got lifted off of me...wow...I feel free...
Exorcist: (with a smile on his face) That's because you are...Praise the Lord!

As you can see from this dialog, its not mental illness. This is an intelligent conversation and with something that believes it has a right to maintain residence within the victim.

I have to agree with Donovan with this one. You are given the choice to follow God or not too. Being Gay is a choice, just as murder is a choice, just as Adultery is a choice, just as choosing not to agree with Christianity, just as choosing to write a comment on RIA. So many people want an excuse for this or that, So many people want to walk away from a God that has given everything to man. It saddens me that we always find a way to excuse sin, just look in the courtrooms today!!! As for rights for gays, God gives them free will! This country is based on rights for its people, why should Gay's be any different. Know that although I state what I state in my last sentence, that does not in anyway mean I agree with Homosexuality.

Quote# 47616

[On "militant atheists"]

Roam through the science section of a book store. There are quite a few out there. Multiple books on the subject. Which amuses me that they would waste so much of their lives dedicated to proving a negative that, according to them, has absolutely no impact on their lives anyways. The most amusing piece for me is that aside from that whole proving a negative problem, they fail their own logic. The very definition of an omnipotent force existing outside of the rules of science pretty much kills science ever being able to prove or disprove its existence. So, they "disprove" the existence of their own concocted definition of God.

Similar to this concept. I can prove right at this moment that I do not have a wizbanglefrat in my hand. Since I get to define what a wizbanglefrat is and it doesn't have to match anyone elses definition of a wizbanglefrat I can indeed state that there is not one in my hand. Then I can proceed to make outlandish statements about anyone who has a differing definition of wizbanglefrat and write numerous books on the subject rather than doing anything actually productive. :)

It is more truthful and more honest and right as it gets. Your denial is basically just you being in denial.
It takes nothing away from the evidence  that shows there is no 'proof' regarding theories in science and there is no reasoning required as no evidence exists to support it anything but a theory.

You see truth works far better than unsubstantiated theories and people who argue there is evidence for a theory are using more faith than a Christian.

Quote# 123854

I hate how jealousy and possessiveness are considered "toxic" in modern romance

What even is the point of romance if it's not gonna be jealous and possessive? Love is, or at least should be, about being with someone you need in order to feel complete, and who needs you back in the same way. Your mental, emotional and physical being should depend on the fact that this person is with you on a relationship. Why claim you're in love when apparently your happiness and your integrity won't be compromised at the possibility of losing your significant other? The concept of love has been devalued to the point of becoming a dull and shallow agreement between people who respect each other just enough to say they're in love, yet not quite enough to actually love each other.

Even if I wasn't incel, I'd avoid "relationships" like the plague just for this reason. I couldn't be bothered to find love when love just isn't allowed to be.

Do we all agree that a police officer is allowed to make arrest? (simple question, simple answer) I've always wanted to be a phrophet and I think I've just had a vision. I foresee several people not answering the question, saying the question is irrelevant, circumventing the question, and ignoring the question altogether. Hummmmmmmmmmm. Hummmmmmmmm. Yeeees, the vision is growing clearer by the second.

Quote# 120459

"Scientism” is the belief that all we need to solve the world’s problems is – you guessed it – science. People sometimes use the phrase “rational thinking”, but it amounts to the same thing. If only people would drop religion and all their other prejudices, we could use logic to fix everything.

Last week, US astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson offered up the perfect example of scientism when he proposed the country of Rationalia, in which “all policy shall be based on the weight of evidence”.

Tyson is a very smart man, but this is not a smart idea. It is even, we might say, unreasonable and without sufficient evidence. Of course, imagining a society in which everyone behaves logically sounds appealing. But employing logic to consider the concept reveals that there could be no such thing.

There has always been a hope, especially as elites became less religious, that science would do more than simply provide a means for learning about the world around us. Science should also teach us how to live, pointing us towards the salvation that religion once promised. You can see this in any of the secular utopianisms of the 20th century, whether it’s the Third Reich, scientific Marxism, or the “modernisation thesis” of Western capitalism.

...

First, experts usually don’t know nearly as much as they think they do. They often get it wrong, thanks to their inherently irrational brains that – through overconfidence, bubbles of like-minded thinkers, or just wanting to believe their vision of the world can be true – mislead us and misinterpret information.

Rationality is subjective. All humans experience such biases; the real problem is when we forget that scientists and experts are human too, and approach evidence and reasoned deliberation with the same prior commitments and unspoken assumptions as anyone else. Scientists: they’re just like us.

And second, science has no business telling people how to live. It’s striking how easily we forget the evil that following “science” can do. So many times throughout history, humans have thought they were behaving in logical and rational ways, only to realise that such acts have yielded morally heinous policies that were only enacted because reasonable people were swayed by “evidence”.

Phrenology – the determination of someone’s character through the shape and size of their cranium – was cutting-edge science. (Unsurprisingly, the upper class had great head ratios.) Eugenics was science, as was social Darwinism and the worst justifications of the Soviet and Nazi regimes.

Scientific racism was data-driven too, and incredibly well-respected. Scientists in the 19th century felt quite justified in claiming that “the weight of evidence” supported African slavery, white supremacy and the concerted effort to limit the reproduction of the “lesser” races.

It wasn’t so long ago that psychiatrists considered homosexuality unhealthy and abhorrent. There is at least one prominent, eminently rational psychiatrist who hasn’t come around on transgenders. And many scientists decided that women were biologically incapable of the same kind of rationality you find in men, a scientific sexism reborn in contemporary evolutionary psychology.

...

In fact, creationism has a lot more in common with scientism than people such as Tyson or Richard Dawkins would ever admit. Like Tyson, creationists begin with certain prior commitments (“evolution cannot be true”, for example, substitutes for “science cannot be wrong”) and build an impressively consistent argument upon them. Just about everyone is guilty of some form of “motivated reasoning”: we begin with certain priors, and then find a way to get the evidence to do what we want.

The past mistakes of science should make us sceptical that it could be used to build a utopia. But, the scientists might say, science is most important for its ability to self-correct. Psychiatry has come around on homosexuality, for example. This may be true, yet it presents the precise reason why attempting to act only accounting for the “weight of evidence” is so flawed.

Quote# 69907

Keep in mind, roman homosexuals were allowed to openly buy, sell, and trade young boys for personal deviance. Very little has changed as our civilized world heads down the same old road once again. I am also reminded that people once married siblings, another source of degenerative behavior that is fallen by the wayside as homophiles now dominate the contemporary trend in sexual deviance. It is all about the marketing, thanks largely to hollywood promoting the brilliant and maligned queer in every episode designed to paint the false picture of a lifestyle rife with infectious disease often spread in filthy public restrooms where queers “hookup” and exchange fecal material by various methods.

Quote# 31253

At least in the new testament, I can only find justification for divorce between a believer and an unbeliever, and in the case of an illegal marriage (most say adultery in these verses). An illegal marriage could be a marriage that follows after a divorce, for example.

For people facing abuse of whatever kind, would they not be married to an unbeliever? Or maybe I should better say to an unsaved, since even the devil knows that Jesus is the Son of God? In any case, the abused have other options I think, that do not include divorce. You can put a safe distance between you for example. You might be able to get a criminal conviction and have the spouse (notice I don't say husband here) incarcerated. Maybe that abuser will come to know the Lord through your walk in Christ.

Christ did not divorce us when we shoved Him up the hill and nailed him to the cross. He continued to love us unconditionally. If abuse and cruelty were biblical grounds for divorce, it would be advantageous to me, but nowhere can I find that to be true. Instead I find that our Lord wants me to love and to serve my spouse unconditionally, that person to whom I pledged my life until death do us part.

Quote# 118612

But as a Christian, this is a critical point that you need to grasp: the concepts of right and wrong are defined by God, and He can change His definitions any time He wants.

Today God says it’s wrong for a father to chop off his son’s finger. But should God suddenly announce tomorrow that all Christian fathers must chop off their son’s fingers, then an activity which used to be wrong would suddenly become right. You see, morality is not a fixed issue, it is a fluid issue, but it is one that only God gets to define.

So should we bow to the Scriptural teaching of the doctrine of eternal punishment, or do we allow human 'arguments from outrage' to override the clear teaching of Scripture?... if, as most of the Christian world has believed, the Bible does teach that the unsaved will be tormented eternally, then we should say that it is fit punishment, and build a model from there.

Im a buddhist and I cant stand it when Im told Im wrong about my religion when I want to make peace and all they do is critisize. And this whole Im going to hell thing, it makes you look bad because it's like your ruling your religion on fear not faith. (If your going to judge me in your response, you need not awnser)









Answer :
you will go the a lake of fire....see when you stand in front of our LORD GOD He will judge you and show you all the times when people told you the truth and you did not listen to the truth. the truth is Jesus died for your sins and you must be born again in order to enter into eternal life in heaven forever..its a gift never earned and all you have to do is believe that He died for your sins and made a way for you a sinner to enter in through His blood that he shed for you on the cross. Ask Jesus to forgive you and ask Hm into your heart tonight and once you do this your name will be enter into the book of life and you now have become born again all things new old things passed away and then read the holy bible and you will fine stories in there that are better the TV............love Jesus freak

[Mrs. W says more crazy shit about college]

Even in such fields as the medical field, I believe we would be a lot better off with an apprentice system. My midwife got her qualifications from an apprenticeship, not a college. Apprenticeships are more real life and college is indoctrination of what the state wants you to know. The state wants doctors to push vaccines and drugs, when a lot of the time there is no need for that. But that's what they "teach" people going into the medical field, and thus those people are deceived thinking that people need antibiotics and vaccinations, and people who see doctors are deceived into it because apparently since the doctor has been to college he "knows what he is doing".

I'm not to sure. Judaism is corrupt and so is Islam. Israel is a state of terror and Palestine is a home of terrorists. We clearly need a new Kingdom Jerusalem in Israel before Satan and the infidels succeeds in blowing the whole country up, sadly that's not going to happen with American and EU being controlled by capitalism and it's greed and all liberal "Catholics" being obsessed with former Pope John Paul II spitting at the memory of the heroic crusaders.
