Why do people try so hard to disprove god?
god is love and hope, jesus lived and died for our sins, we have the bible which was wrote by the prophets and diciples. it is first hand accounts wrote down by people who followed god and witnessed miracles. yet we won't accept that as being good enough but we believe everything in history books isn't that what the bible is the oldest history book we have? the most important one we have? why is there so many people who want to disprove gods existance? is it because we don't want to have to answer for our actions? or are people afraid that if heavens real than that means hell is too? i don't understand why to some people religion can be so offensive, just because we can't see the oxygen we breath does that mean its not real either? in many ways you can see god are people just afraid to look?

The reason my argument holds for homosexuals and not for left-handed people is because homosexuality is obviously not the natural way of things.

umm, what is your point? That is all crap? lets say that I am in the medical field, which I am. What we think is right changes every few minutes. This is a fact, research this point. I do not understand the point at all, and no I am not stupid Evolution has been found wanting. What created everything? No matter what you say, you have to have a creator. I wonder what the agenda is behind this? I have studied it a great deal on my way to becoming a nurse, it is like let me close my eyes to this part. Is the missing link is still missing? Where are all these fossils of humans from 1 million b.c.?

Quote# 64458

My son lives with his father (major custody battle last year).

His father practices witchcraft - I'm not talking speaking curse (which he does) - I mean something more demonic and senister than that.

He plays Dugeon and Dragons, DragonballZ and Vampire Games, etc.

I am a minister I raised my son in the ways of God - LITERALLY.

He (my son is 13 years of age) gave his first sermon last year prior to him running to his father (long story).

My son visits me every other weekend.

When this whole ordeal begin, prior to my son coming to visit for the weekend (two days usually) I would smell sulfar - STRONGLY.

When my son visit - this ordor was so strong I had to make my son take three baths and was his cloths and wait a day before the ordor would leave. (It is not as strong now as it was)

Recently my son has physically attacked me - knife, hammer, baseball bat, etc. I had serveral people on the phone praying with me - while dealt with that spirit and somehow get to my son.

Recently I found a 20 page paper that my son wrote - a fictionary story he made up dealing with witchcraft and demons. Hear the name of some that he mentions in his story: Master Zarkon, Zeto, Nateko - my son in the story is a Warlock. It has graffice language and drawings of weapons. - THIS IS NOT MY SON.

The last encounter I had with this spirit (and I know it was a spirit) it growled at me.

Quote# 120291

Fyodor Dostoevsky has rightly been called a prophet of the modern age. With a depth of vision unrivalled, he saw that cultural, political, and economic disorder have their main source in a crisis of the spirit. Dostoevsky then foresaw how man’s rebellion against the Transcendent would progressively accelerate into full-blown anarchy. This idea became a central theme of The Possessed, his great counter-revolutionary novel. Within the book particular attention was drawn to the spiritual corruption of the ruling class, the so-called conservative elements of society.

Dostoevsky wrote about Russia, but he was also deeply sensitive to the West’s descent into secularism. By the 19th century “enlightened” European man had hurtled headlong into apostasy, abandoning Christ for the worship of self; his first act of regicide was the murder of God within his heart. Without sacral authority, power was said to derive from the perfect will of “We, The People,” guided by moneyed manipulators and their technocrats. Parties like the GOP and the Tories have done nothing to arrest the decline of our societies because they ultimately share the same radical, anti-traditional principles of the Left. For evidence, look no further than Britain’s rapid transformation into a crime-ridden, multicultural surveillance state, where the ruling Conservatives advance homosexual “marriage” as a matter of moral legitimacy.

The ideals of modernity, manifested in progress, equality, democracy, total individual autonomy, etc. form a counterfeit religion. So long as the self-proclaimed Right holds fast to any of these fantasies, opposition to liberalism is meaningless and purely cosmetic. Rhetorical nods to cultural consolidation, i.e. “family values,” are articulated within the corrosive framework of Enlightenment rights ideology, and only for the purpose of grabbing votes. Does anyone seriously contemplate that the Republican leadership will attempt anything meaningful against institutionalized infanticide? Lest we forget, over 50 million unborn children have been slaughtered in the United States since abortion was made legal by the Supreme Court in 1973. It is now a point of pride that American men and women fight for these storied liberties from the Hindu Kush to the Maghreb.

Donald Trump Signs Anti-Abortion Executive Order Surrounded By Men

It seems like women might be interested in this policy too.

WASHINGTON ? On Monday, surrounded by other white men, President Donald Trump signed an anti-abortion executive order that has far-reaching consequences for women’s reproductive health access worldwide.

Trump reinstated the Mexico City policy, also known as the global gag rule, which was first put in place by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. It prohibits giving U.S. funding to international nongovernmental organizations that offer or advise on a wide range of family planning and reproductive health options if they include abortion ? even if U.S. dollars are not specifically used for abortion-related services.

The United States spends about $600 million a year on international assistance for family planning and reproductive health programs, making it possible for 27 million women and couples to access contraceptive services and supplies.

None of that money is spent on performing abortions. The Helms amendment has prevented U.S. tax dollars from funding overseas abortions since 1973. Proponents of the global gag rule believe the policy is nevertheless still necessary, arguing that Helms isn’t strong enough by itself.

The executive order is one of the first Trump has signed since taking office. Sitting in the Oval Office Monday, he also signed ones freezing federal hiring and withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

A pan of the people standing by his side showed that there were few, if any, women present.

Trump’s executive order has severe implications and could be deadly for women and girls in developing countries and conflict zones, who often resort to dangerous methods of ending their pregnancies when they lack access to safe abortion. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 21 million women a year have unsafe abortions in developing countries, accounting for about 13 percent of all maternal deaths.

The policy is rescinded and reinstated based on which party is in power. President Bill Clinton did away with it, President George W. Bush put it back and then President Barack Obama rescinded it again when he took office.

Trump’s Cabinet is more white and more male than any president’s first Cabinet since Reagan.

Quote# 106658

SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - Members of a county Republican Party in Idaho are to take up a measure on Tuesday evening that would declare the state a Christian one to bolster what the proposal calls the "Judeo-Christian bedrock of the founding of the United States."

The resolution to be voted on by the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee is non-binding, meaning it does not have the effect of laws or rules.

The proposal seeks that Idaho be "formally and specifically declared a Christian state," guided by a Judeo-Christian faith reflected in the U.S. Declaration of Independence where all authority and power is attributed to God, the resolution reads.

The measure argues that the Christian faith is under "strident attack" in the United States, and cites as evidence the absence of Christian traditions and symbols in public institutions such as schools.

The issue has sparked debate within the Republican stronghold of northern Idaho, once known for harboring leaders of the so-called Christian identity or white supremacist movement such as the late Aryan Nations founder Richard Butler.

Supporters say the measure echoes the Christian principles espoused by early U.S. presidents such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, and that it has added significance at a time when Christians are subject to persecution in countries such as Syria where it is not the dominant religion.

"We're a Christian community in a Christian state and the Republican Party is a Christian Party," said Jeff Tyler, a member of the committee and backer of the draft resolution.

"It's important that Christians stand up and be unashamed to say they're Christians."

Other committee members said they opposed the proposal, but that it placed them in a difficult position because if they voted against it they risked being unjustly labeled as anti-Christian.

Bjorn Handeen, a committee member who described himself as a Republican with libertarian leanings, said he is opposed to any document that puts the government in charge of defining Christianity.

He said the resolution was pushed by a small group within the committee that is bent on creating division among its about 70 members.

"Ultimately, I'm not in favor of dividing us by religion; I'm in favor of uniting us by freedom," Handeen said.

If approved, the resolution would be submitted to the state Republican Party for a vote by its members.

Idaho has long been a Republican bastion, with party members holding the majority of state offices.

Quote# 65660

A vegan fundie for a change. An Oxford philosophy professor discusses the problem of wild carnivorous animals existing in his ideal future world:

Extinction versus Reprogramming

1) Extinction
One solution to the barbarities of predation is to use indiscriminate depot-contraception on carnivores and allow predators rapidly to die out, managing the resultant population effects on "prey" species via more selective forms of depot-contraption. Such advanced computer-controlled contraception technologies could be used selectively on zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, etc, so our wildlife parks don't become overpopulated...

2) Reprogramming
Alternatively, should carnivorous predators be genetically "reprogrammed" or otherwise behaviourally modified rather than allowed to go extinct in the "wild"? Pre-reflectively, such reprogramming is all but impossible. In practice, the technical expertise is probably a few decades away at most...

[After being pointed to scripture that's interpreted as meaning you can have recreational sex as long as you're married]

I have a few things to say concerning this scripture. First, do this passages have to be referring to intercourse? Being satisfied by your wife's breasts and embracing a spouse's bosom does not sound like intercourse to me.

Quote# 82743

When I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a young wife and mother, I had committed to pay tithing. I had never wavered from that promise. I was deeply distressed, however, by inadequate funds to cover yet another month of utility, mortgage, and insurance bills.
Now I was a single mother of six young children. I frequently felt overwhelmed by the constant workload, financial worries, and endless decisions involved in my efforts to be both mother and father with no extended family to give me relief or support.
As I sat at the table pleading with the Lord for His help and mercy, the Holy Ghost opened to my view a beautiful and comforting manifestation of the Savior’s love. I was able to see the money owed for household expenses with a new perspective as the sacred priorities of life were brought to my remembrance. I knew that our Heavenly Father wanted me to have the blessings promised to those who faithfully paid tithes and offerings. I also knew that tithe paying should be a joyful act of love, devoid of fear and worry.
As the Spirit of the Lord filled me, I found myself bearing testimony of convictions I had long held firm and sacred. My voice broke the silence of the kitchen as I declared that I would rather lose the water source to my house than lose the living water offered by the Savior. I would rather have no food on our table than be without the Bread of Life. I would prefer to endure the darkness and discomfort of no electricity than to forfeit the Light of Christ in my life. I would rather abide with my children in a tent than relinquish my privilege of entering the house of the Lord.

Quote# 105680

Rabbi Efim Svirsky is a Jerusalem-based psychotherapist who utilizes a unique psycho-spiritual method he created to help people suffering from phobias and emotional blockages. He employs Deep Relaxation, an altered state of mind in which the patient’s free will is never suspended; the patient is completely aware throughout the process and remembers everything upon returning to day-to-day function.

A Rosh Yeshiva came to Rabbi Svirsky with a strange phobia. He was afraid of showers. He explained that he was not afraid of water; he swam in the sea and in swimming pools, and took baths without fear. But any time he went to take a shower, he was gripped with fear.

Rabbi Svirsky assumed that the Rosh Yeshiva had experienced a trauma involving a shower as a child. So, he led him into a state of Deep Relaxation and asked him to imagine himself in a shower and to feel the fear. “Let’s go back to where this fear started,” Rabbi Svirsky suggested. The Rosh Yeshiva immediately went into a past gilgul and saw himself in a gas chamber constructed like a shower. Rabbi Svirksy then took him through his death, gently coaxing, “As you die, go with the soul.” He saw himself going out of the body into the spiritual realm.

When the session was over, the fear was gone. Notably, this Litvish Rosh Yeshiva was surprised when he came back to the present, because he had never believed that the concept of gilgulei neshamot could have applied to him.

During twenty-five years of treating thousands of patients, Rabbi Svirsky has witnessed scores of patients unexpectedly discover the root of their problem in a Holocaust gilgul. “Because I’m not a researcher,” maintains Rabbi Svirsky, “it doesn’t matter to me where the patient goes under Deep Relaxation. I have no theories to prove. I have no investment in where the patient goes. But many times it has been back to a Holocaust experience.”

One young woman who came to Rabbi Svirsky for help had an extreme sensitivity around her throat. Even her husband could not touch her there. Under Deep Relaxation, she saw herself as a young girl, and relived an experience where a Nazi officer killed her by choking her to death with his bare hands. Rabbi Svirsky led her through her death to her soul entering the spiritual realm. Afterwards, her neck sensitivity disappeared.

This is an overstatement of my comments. What I have stated is this: "IF SCIENCE CONTRADICTS SOMETHING CLEARLY TAUGHT IN THE BIBLE, SCIENCE IS WRONG". And they are.

Science says man is basically "good". They are wrong because the Bible clearly teaches man is sinful. Science says man evolved from apes. They are wrong because the Bible clearly teaches otherwise. Science denies the global Biblical Flood. They are wrong.

Again, where the Bible CLEARLY teaches something, Science is WRONG no matter how "proof" they have to contradict it.

Interestingly, the Bible fairly plainly implies the earth is round (Isaiah 40:22; Job 26:7), even though man (including people who beleive in God) have gone back and forth.

Sid, did you know that they've 'kissed and made up'? So have the Lutherans and the RCC. So have the Evangelicals and the RCC. The Dalai Lama is referred to by the head honcho as his best friend, so the Buddhists have kissed up to the RCC as well. The Muslims have been kissed up to by the RCC. The Hindus have been made friends with. The pagans have been kissed up to. Don't believe me?..read uri.org. Everyone has kissed and made up. Can anyone say, Constantine? Pity for them, there are heretics around like you and me, who refuse to 'kiss and make up', and we all know what's going to happen to those who don't.

LOL at your flair, 18 yr old "normie" who is a KV.

Just another blue pilled beta without a clue destined to be cucked. All because of feminism and the sexual revolution. They ruined life for lesser males.

Only question is when you will accept Red Pill truth. After 5 years of virginity past 18? After divorce rape? Never? The brainwashing from society, your parents, and the illusions of females has mind fucked you.

Females dislike you, you are not alpha. You are only good for beta bux and relationships when they are not getting enough alpha love. Society has given you a shit deal. Even if you succeed at getting girls they will be used up cunts with attitude. Not fit to be good mothers or partners. You have no idea how toxic and cancerous females truly are. You are in for a rude awakening if you are capable of seeing reality as it truly exists.

Every time I pass by this thread I keep getting this mental image from the movie the Exorcist. The priest is splashing holy water on the demon-possessed child while calling out the name of Christ. The water burns the girl's skin on contact because of the demon inside her and she's writhing in agony from hearing the name of God... That's the reaction that the words 'under God' have on these people.

I have also had dreams about demons/evil chasing me. However I have never had the visualization of dead bodies as you have. I truly believe that when we sleep we are open to all kinds of spirits. I could be that an evil element was trying to do something (I don't want to elaborate). How fortunate that Jesus was so close and made himself known to you. I do believe that HE is always with us and that when we call to HIM he will protect us. I am not a spiritual fanatic.

May His peace be with you always. Also try sleeping with your chest area covered. Some believe that this area should be protected while sleeping.
