In Matthew 12:6-8 Jesus says "But I say to you that something GREATER THAN THE TEMPLE IS HERE."
But if you had known what this means 'I DESIRE COMPASSION and not SACRIFICE,' you would not have ...
ASOG (AKA Physicalist) again you come preaching utter falsehoods, dithering between atheism and Islam to see which one hates Jesus more. This is not the sign of a healthy mind, but instead, one of a lunatic with a hair-trigger temper and is about to self destruct.
More people convert to Judiasm from atheism every day. We get as many converts to Christianity. Even more convert from Islam to Christianity and Judiasm, because it is one way to pay a penance for the sins of Islam. Yet they find that there is no penance to pay: they are forgiven.
That is because faith begets forgiveness, and forgiveness begets happiness.
Let us see what always happens when prople nurse a grudge as does our alienated and desperate Physicalist -- who hates Jews and Christians with equal and absolute frenzy.
Consider that cults of mindless hate have come and gone before, always in bloodshed.
Has there ever been a person more obviously pitiable as one who is consumed with hate? Yet we see the spirit of the true martyr: one who dies at the hands of barbarians, not of his own doing, but by an injustice that was caused by sinful persons.
History is full of persecution by atheiosts and Muslims. Above we saw a Muslim atrocity against Christians, but do atheists inflict that on Jews also?
See for yourself.
Do we need to see a clearer correlation in the aims, methods, and idealogy that links atheism to Islam so stoutly?
If so, I will gladly provide convincing proof. It isn't difficult.
Excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses, excuses.
Excuses, excuses, excuses, and excuses and them excuses.
Have you ever known a Roc head without EXCUSES, EXCUSES and EXCUSES???
Answer me with a Bible VERSE, please.
I'll go you one better than that.
I'll give you the testimony of four men who know God and have seen the other side of the pale, as I have. Atheists must of course scoff as do all pampered prima donnas but not even you can argue against honorable men who have seen what you azre terrified to consider -- and came back with the truth that atheists all fear horribly.
The reason you are in such terrible fear is that all atheists are cowards, afraid of everything, particularly Christ, Who gives men of faith the strength to face all from which you cower.
That proves that all atheists are completely wrong. Once you get to the other side as often as I have been there, you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
In 1982, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Neslon, and Waylon Jennings, sat down for a recording session and then compared notes on their religious views. All are very strongly spiritual men, who have been through immense trials and proved victorious over assorted trials placed before them.
All spoke of their experiences after being declared dead. All had the same testimony. All returned with part of their earlier existence, some quite disturbing. But all rings true: none had any cause to lie and all took major downturns in their careers because they spoke the truth that scared their music producers out of their wits -- virtually all atheists.
Note that they are devout Christians, as with me. The thing is, unlike pampered atheist and Muslim prima donnas, these men spoke the truth that no one can deny. There is a past, and a future. And it is eternal.
The remarkable thing is that these four were destined to tell the world how fortunate they were to get a second chance at mortality -- and redemption. Few are so privileged.
I share their testimony. I have also seen the far side of the pale and I am here to tell you that atheist fears are the most idiotic fears that superstitious frauds ever manufactured. Nothing works like firsthand experience, does it Physicalist?
It is amazing how tough pre-staging recruits act, before they face actual combat. To date, Physicalist, you show me the same lack of experience and expertise as a first-phase recruit looking at a salty old Marine with stripes up his sleeve that meet his four rockers.
Maybe you should open that crippled mind and inert spirit long enough to listen to people who have directly related experience. And buddy, that does not include Hindu. Not one of these people has ever been where these old salts went.
I have been there also. Until you develop faith, you will always be fearful and ignorant.
Islam and atheism are both at war against Christians and Jews, therefore, demand to deny us any place to meet as a direct and unmistakable anti-Christian and anti-Jewish persecution.
There has never been a question that the surliest and bitterest Muslim suicide bombers always live a lie and pose as Christians who should be hated. Nor is there any question of the direct link between Nazi fascism, atheism, and Muslim superstition. All three deny hope to everyone.
Christians have storehouses and community gardens because that is how we get food to the hungry and avoid the evils of a socialist dole.
Islam and atheism are so obviously two of the devil's evil stunts that it hurts, therefore all questions about Islam, Satanism, atheism, and Walkingglass are fully resolved.
But tell us all, Walk, what happens when you fail in your bloody Jihad? What happens when people come to Christ from Islam and Atheism because they wish to be cleansed from that sanctimonious unrighteousness?
This is one example of hundreds every single day.
Your insane leftist hatred has given you away again, Physicalist/Walk/Dixon/Cooper . . ..
Walk, I fully understand how severely terrified you are of death and what must come after. It isn't even the pain of dying that makes death a detractor we must all endure.
It is what comes afterward.
It is clear that you have done absolutely nothng to help anyone and are in fact on welch-fare, not compensated for what you did for your homeland, but because you developed a very bad grudge, blew your only chance at a degree on leftist balderdash, and have since converted to Islam, thinking it might be an alternative to God's Grace.
Submitting to Grace would be unthinkable for a self-absorbed and self-righteous Muslim. However, these men came back from the jaws of death and felt so strongly about it that they risked their careers. They could not have known that "Highwayman" would be their masterpiece.
Willie Nelson admits with shame that in a past life he was a robber. Waylon Jennings tells the end of his previous life as an honorable mariner. Kris Kristofferson shows his honorable death at America's toughest construction project. Johnny Cash knows that his next life will include traveling star to star -- routinely.
What then of the Muslim coward who took his own life and those of others including a Christian Martyr?
Few of us rate a second chance. Cash, Jennings, Kristofferson, and Nelson testify in song that they got that priceless second chance and straightened their lives out. Since their return, all were noted for quiet philanthropy.
They all needed Christian congregations to help them, but the results were outstretched hands of magnimity that make them Christian martyrs, even though they died peacefully at home.
You cannot say as much. But I can.
Walk, no Christian has any fear of curses. Save that one for superstitious fools. However, you leave me no option but to place an actual curse on you.
For three days, you will experience inner turmoil such as you have never suffered before. It will be great enough to cause you severe nausea. That is because in the next three days, you will reconsider the misery and bitterness that you have caused so many others.
During your days of turmoil you will have the opportunity to end that turmoil by three methods. I highly recommend the first as it is the most beneficial. They are:
1. To accept Christ as did Johnny Cash, on faith alone.2. To end your life in a dastardly manner that you will later come to regret.3. To continue in your leftist defiance until the end of your appointed days.
Faulted Christians never claimed to be superior to anyone. Self-righteous arrogant conceit is best left to violent persons known for willful insubordination, reckless hate, and mindless bitterness -- such as that common to Muslims.
You have three important days ahead of you. Use them wisely, and do not deny the truth.
How are you, Walkingglass/Physicalist? I can see from your highly agitated tone that you had a rough night last night. I believe that I warned you about that, did I not? I felt great last night and I still feel fine this morning, but you cannot say the same without lying.
I am the first to admit that a congregation does not necessarily need to own a building to minister the Gospel. My, but it took you awhile to figure that out! We need warehouse space to store food for the food bank, which our Church does in more ways than you would want to consider.
Your refusal to repent of your sins has put you in misery, but all you would have to do to end that misery is do what you should have done long ago: repent.
You can't stop the Gospel. People all over the world are coming to Christ for indeed, Christ ministered to the poor and the rich, the small and the great, Jew and Gentile, man and woman. He saves whom He will.
You can't stop God any more than could satan . . . the father of lies.
If these good folks can be Christans without a temple, then you can't stop them either.
In any case, Physicalist, all your insane hatred against Christ has put your guts in a churn. That is a sign that you cannot deny, unless you just plain reject God and then things will automatically happen.
I suggest that you repent of your sin of sanctimony.
It would appear from Walk's tone that he has been very angry, to the point of physical illness, for the last three horrific days. Sometimes it takes an authoritative wake-up call to put people straight. Walk is never going to straighten out but others will.
Walk asks me if I do as Jesus said for me to do. The answer is clearly in the affirmative! I do so even now.
So do lots of very decent people who have risen from cults of doubt, depravity, and hate. They work with the homeless, the chemically dependent, and those who need a little peace in their spirit.
The reason so many Muslims have made suicide bombs and threatened to set them off in Churches across the nation on Christmas Day is that they envy the peace, dignity, and uplift in spirit that Christ gves to all who ask.
We cannot reach out far enough to help those who live on hate and flee every kindly word or helpful act. But we DO reach out to those who will allow us to help them.
We have been doing so for the last 2,000 years.
BTW, Walk (AKA Physicalist) to house those who have no home requires a crafted temple. The fact that you would deny homeless people any shelter whatsoever proves how harsh, bitter, and hypocritical Islam still is.
Until you Muslims repent of your sins, you cannot help anyone.
Dang Rocky...another person who sees through you! I tried to tell you but you wouldn't listen to me. Maybe God is putting his people in place to bare witness to you. Ya think?
