StrongAxe: Yes GOD made Job, Abraham, Boaz,..rich. He didn't tell them to pay workers less so they could make themselves rich.//

???

Some were NOT paid at all!

I rather get a nickel than to be OWN by someone!

Genesis 20:14 Then Abimelek brought sheep and cattle and male and female SLAVES and gave them to Abraham, and he returned Sarah his wife to him.

Esp for women. They are raped and have no justice!

Genesis 16:1-2 But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar, so she said to Abram, The LORD has kept me from having children. Go, SLEEP with my SLAVE, perhaps I can build a family through her. Abram agreed to what Sarai said.

NOTE no one asked ONE HAGAR!

Another answer why God made them rich?

Nicole_Lacey:

Yes. GOD made Job, Abraham, Boaz, David, and Solomon rich. He didn't tell them to pay workers less so they could make themselves rich.

The middle class did well in the 50s-60s when the top tax bracket was 90%. The economy was great. The country was great. We went to the MOON. Reagan changed that, resulting in the subsequent decimation of the middle class. Now AOC wants to restore the 70% rate above $10 million, and Republican heads are exploding.

Many people work 2 jobs because companies like Walmart offer less than 40 hours to avoid giving benefits like health care. Lifetime jobs with safe pensions are now unheard of.
---StrongAxe on 1/26/19


StrongAxe: Jesus had a lot to say about riches, most of it bad.//

God Himself PROVES their isn't anything WRONG being rich.

God INCREASES Job and Abraham's wealth as a BLESSING for their Faith. God made Boaz, David and Solomon filthy rich.

//people don't like handouts. However, if people can't make it without handouts (e.g. working two jobs//

Working 2 jobs are due to Democrats' policies.

Lowering the full time from 40 hours to 30 hours forced people to work 2 jobs.

Now that a Republican is in Office, people CAN drop handouts and work with dignity.

Every TIME minimum wage is increased to $15 people LOSE their job and those who are left have to work HARDER due their co-workers being laid off.
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/25/19


Nicole_Lacey:

The hat joke is a parable about ingratitude.

Jesus had a lot to say about riches, most of it bad.

Yes, people don't like handouts. However, if people can't make it without handouts (e.g. working two jobs and still not making ends meet), handouts may be necessary. Patting them on the head and saying "just work harder, and you won't need handouts, and we'll take the handouts away to motivate you harder" is just like slave owners using the whip for motivation. Also, see 1 John 3:17.

Telling people to just walk through the front gate is hypocrisy if you also seal your front gate shut. Trump said he wants to totally close the southern border.
---StrongAxe on 1/25/19


StrongAxe: your 'hat' joke gave me a good laugh. Thanks.

//Republicans: "Work hard to become rich."//

Yes everyone can be rich.

Democrats: Only the Elite can be rich.

Republicans: Giving people work builds self esteem.

Believe it or not, people DON'T like handouts

//Bible: "Treat the stranger among you as your own son."//

I think it is 'as yourself' not your son. Leviticus 19:34

Building a wall treats people as humans not as animals. They can walk threw the FRONT gate.

Democrats: come threw the back door and remember you are beneath us as Black people had to enter our homes.

Democrats missed the 'good old days' when Black and Brown people knew their place.
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/24/19




Nicole_Lacey:

Winning "by hook or by crook" (i.e. lying and cheating in order to implement morals) is a hypocritical and bankrupt strategy.

The reason Republicans need to be held to a higher standard is that they claim to be Christians and to be the party of God. As such, they must be judged by the standards of Christianity and God. The Democrats don't make such a claim. Because they don't, if you think their actions are ungodly, you can condemn them for being ungodly, but if Republicans act in an ungodly manner, they are not only ungodly, but ALSO hypocritical for doing so while claiming to be godly.

StrongAxe: Republicans believed only THEY could stop Communism, so they stooped to ANY means achieve power to that end,//

Wanting MORALS isn't stooping down but looking UP.

//including altering their platform to lure Evangelicals,//

Cite what they altered?

You are confusing Democrats with Republicans

From the beginning of our existence we were AGAINST Slavery.

We fought Democrats who WANTED Slavery since their existence.

Democrats wanted to ALTER their platform in 2012. Remember?

Kick GOD out of the Democrat Party.

//Need I go on?//

No I wouldn't want you to get in trouble with your Party.

They might try to kick you out like they tried to kick God out.

Nicole_Lacey:

Republicans believed only THEY could stop Communism, so they stooped to ANY means achieve power to that end, including altering their platform to lure Evangelicals, even though their core values were diametrically opposite:

Jesus: "Don't store valuables. Don't serve mammon. Camel+eye of needle." Republicans: "Work hard to become rich."
Jesus: "I was hungry and you fed me." Republicans: "Cutting food stamps encourages work."
Bible: "Treat the stranger among you as your own son." Republicans: "Build a wall to keep the filthy rabble out".
Bible: "Pay the worker his due." Republicans: Oppose minimum wage and overtime pay.

StrongAxe: Republicans saw the greatest threat to the planet was Communism,//

AMEN! AMEN!

Over 200 million + people were KILLED in the 20th century.

That is more death COMBINED in all religious wars in the first 20 century.

The common link in the 200 million+ deaths is Communism.

When communism is in control people DIE.

Today is the 46th anniversary of Roe vs Wade that caused the deaths of over 50 million babies.

They claim possibly an additional 100 million babies death due to birth control and the 'morning after pill'. And that's JUST in the United States.

Abortion all over the world is over 200 million babies.

So really over 500 million deaths combined in the 20th century.
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/22/19




"All good things, come from THE LORD" . . . so in that, let's focus" . . .

The truth above all - even in all the advances in science and technology that we are blessed with, let's be thankful to THE LORD for all we have (compared to the olden times) in the times that we are living now, and put aside the negative about it, as we have to accept that we all are imperfect human beings - and mistakes are made in all respects because of that and individually in our decisions: "Above all things - seek wisdom"!

Strongaxe, Where did you find that life span was 30 years?

Four score and seven years ago. (remember Lincoln's address?) A score is equal to 20 years.

Not counting the mortality rate of children before the age of five, the average age is 70/80 years. The mortality of children before the 1900s was at 25%. The mortality rate dropped to 2% thereafter. why was that? for centuries doctors who worked on sick people and the dead washed their hands in a bowl, thereafter they washed their hands in running water. The bible said to wash hands in running water 3,000 years ago.
---Steveng on 1/22/19


Steveng:

You wrote: whatever man created in the laboratory is detrimental to the body, whatever God created is healthy to the body.

Before all "man created in the laboratory", average human life expectancy was around 30 years instead of 70, infant mortality was around 30% instead of 5-10%, and people died of easily treated diseases like influenza, appendicitis, and infected wounds. Do YOU ignore all modern science, so you can improve your health?

Do you blame all the hostility on these blogs on science? It's like the Twinkie Defense - "The devil made me do it!" cop-out is replaced by the "Fast food made me do it!" cop-out.
---StrongAxe on 1/22/19


Cluny:

"christiandom" is a misspelling of "christendom".

Brad Hicks wrote an excellent 5-part article "Christians in the Hands of an Angry God", that describes how American Evangelican Chistianity in the past 50 years have been hijacked by the Republican Party, but of course, most of the people on these blogs wouldn't even consider that as a possibility.

Republicans saw the greatest threat to the planet was Communism, with them as the only way to counter it. This meant they had to get elected at all cost. The easiest way to do that was to woo Evangelicals, so they incorporated many Evangelical points into their party platform, producing an unholy mixture of God and politics, church and state.

How about His words in Gethsemane? "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death?"
---Cluny on 1/13/18

Yet, St. Paul says:

Phil 4:11 "Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am"

Contentment. Peace. Peace in the storm. These are the ideas I have about serenity. Not the "I am floating on a cloud" serenity, but the serenity that knows "I am going to be alright" in the midst of the trials and even death because I can depend upon my Father who loves me even though I do not deserve it.
---Mark_Eaton on 1/15/18


Cluny wrote: "...are you saying that processed foods made Christianity lose its way ...?"

You usually pick and choose what you try to accuse someone, eh? Have you not read my entire post? What you chose is just one item of dozens that affect the human mind. I have a simple motto in life: whatever man created in the laboratory is detrimental to the body, whatever God created is healthy to the body.

Look at the world around you, Satan, using man, is destroying God's creation to the point of deceiving who we are. How many genders do we need? And what about microaggression that has proliferated within the past two years by college and antifa members? You think they just popped up (think of the boiled frog analogy)?

\\Let's look at Jesus. On the cross with death looking Him in the face, He asks the Father to forgive the people who did this to Him. I don't know about you, but this demonstrates great peace and trust in the care of the Father. \\

How about His words in Gethsemane? "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death?"

That doesn't sound very peaceful or serene to me--unless you know definitions of these words with which I"m unfamiliar.

Christ is baptized! In the Jordan!

Steveng, are you saying that processed foods made Christianity lose its way in the 1960?

That's what it soundds like to me.

Excellent response Mark.

Cluny wrote: "...why you think that Christianity got off the rails in the 1960's..."

Two topics that I investigated: one, toxic contamination is all around us every day of our lives which contributed to the sickest generation ever and, two, human behavior.

The 1960s was the turning point in the world when young people went against the establishment, which became exponentially worse since they grew up and had kids, and experimenting with mind altering drugs.

As for toxic environment: processed foods, vaccinations, GMOs, water pollution, soil pollution, outdoor/indoor air pollution, radiation, fluoridation, - and anything else that is man-made after the 1960s. The list goes on.

Can you say that the many martyrs died in peace and serenity when they were dipped in pork fat and lit on fire?
---Monk_Brendan on 1/10/18

Who can say what their state of mind was?

Why do you think tribulation should destroy our peace and serenity?

Let's look at Jesus. On the cross with death looking Him in the face, He asks the Father to forgive the people who did this to Him. I don't know about you, but this demonstrates great peace and trust in the care of the Father.

And that is what drives our peace and serenity. Trust in the good will and intentions of the Father toward us. We do not need to strive to get our Father to love us, He already does. And nothing we do can make Him love us more or less.

\\You say pohtaytoh, I'll say pohtahtoh. A rose by any other name is still a rose, eh?
\\

There is such a word as "rose." There is no such word as "christiandom, " which my computer marks as a misspelling.

And I would like to know how and why you think that Christianity got off the rails in the 1960's--not to argue, but to understand you.

Christ is baptized! In the Jordan!
---Cluny on 1/11/18


Mark Eaton said, "If I stay in the middle of God's will for me, I stay in peace and serenity."

Really? Can you say that the many martyrs died in peace and serenity when they were dipped in pork fat and lit on fire?
---Monk_Brendan on 1/10/18


Cluny, you understood what I wrote and others will also understand. Why debate over semantics when the heart is what is most important. Besides, you write it your way, I'll write it my way as long as people understand.

You say pohtaytoh, I'll say pohtahtoh. A rose by any other name is still a rose, eh?

Steveng, there is no such word as "christiandom ", the proper word is "Christendom"--note the capitalization. (A spiritual work of mercy is to instruct the ignorant.)

Why do you believe Christianity began to fall apart in the1960"S? Please explain.

Why is there so little love on these blogs?
---Monk_Brendan on 1/8/18

Love is an action word (I know, I know). And it starts with ourselves.

If I stay in the middle of God's will for me, I stay in peace and serenity.

But what is God's will for me? Easy, love God and love others.

But, when I fire off an answer to someone without really looking to edify, lift up, and really love someone, I am out of God's will. And being out of God's will means I lose the serenity and peace I want. I feel it, physically and emotionally. And if I continue without confessing this error(sin) to God or anyone else, I will do other things outside of God's will and thus, the cycle continues and continues.
---Mark_Eaton on 1/9/18


For over two thousand years, Satan has infiltrated and divided christiandom up into over sixty five thousand denominations worldwide each having their own rituals, traditions, ways of living, and interpretations of the bible.

True love, as in the verb form, has practically evaporated off the face of this world. Many denominational christians know the meaning of love, but do not know how to put it into practice on a personal level.

The great falling away from the faith began in the 1960s and has exponentially gotten worse within the past few years. Keep in mind that one must have faith to begin with in order to fall away from it.
