Those are great, things of the world and earth only last for a short time. The place where Jesus and his father is will last forever, its eternal yet we waste our time building in a place that will soon disappear like wasting time playing a MMORPG with an expiry date soon up.

NLT 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.

KJV 2 Peter 3:10 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Found a few passages of the earth being burned up, world was destroyed by water previously fire next?

The more i read the bible, the outlook i see for Christians lifestyle is of a monk.

KJV Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

KJV Colossians 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

School educating about the world is good but becoming more ingrained to lifestyles of the world is not. Easier said than done growing up in the west.

i like these verses:

mat 6:

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Europe's biggest Mormon temple complex opens in Rome - Two Pope's, and now this? Strange times we live in... by Tom_Bombadil in Christianity

[–]Jesus 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Both Mormonism and J. witnesses of the watchtower preach a one world government.

The mormon church was founded by a Freemason, and JW also have many connections to freemasonry.

The current Pope also has many connections to freemasonry and freemasons have praised his work. Quite strange considering the orient revolutionary masonic lodges were staunchly aginst the catholic church.

The goal has always been a one world government ruled by a king and the chosen ones, i.e., the Jews but more likely and more historically accurate based on Ben-gurion's predictions and more than 300 years of cabalist utterings -- one world rule by Zionist Jews as prophesied in Isaiah.

Ben-gurion was a freemason.

Zionists hate one thing more than the protestant branches of christianity which they have successfully infiltrated and that is catholicism, which, presently they too have infiltrated.

“It’s Better To Be An Atheist” Than A Hypocritical Christian, Pope Francis Says by Orangutan in Christianity

[–]wizzwizz4 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The Pope advocating that it is acceptable for men to lie with men is the Pope advocating for people to not walk in the ways of the Lord.

? Are you talking about Leviticus, which is probably talking about child abuse? Or are you talking about St. Paul's letters, which were also probably on the same topic (though it's more ambiguous) but, regardless, defer to Jesus' teachings to love thy neighbour?

How can loving people ever be a sin, when Jesus taught it?

Edit: Ooh, comic!

I mean, he does advocate for the LGBT. And though we know that salvation is through faith, our faith is supposed to compel us to act in accordance with God's laws. Including those is the Old Testament.

The Pope advocating that it is acceptable for men to lie with men is the Pope advocating for people to not walk in the ways of the Lord.

It is falsehood. A lie from the mouth of the serpent to seduce men and women away from the Lord.

It does seem absurd, with the historicity of Jesus being well established and all. I've checked out their arguments but they seemed like a lot of cherry picking and weren't very compelling. Like multiple cultures reporting flood events is somehow a debunking for them, when at the same time science is proving that a lot of these floods did happen.

It was cool to learn a bit about other Jesus-like figures though. Someone has to keep the atheists turned off I guess.

It's definitely Christ Myth theory stuff. Robert Price is one of the 2 or 3 historians in the world right now with semi-relevant credentials who's still pushing this idea. The vast majority of historians who study the period, both conservative and critical, have found the theory absurd, and, really, psuedohistory at this point.

It's serious research about the creation of the Christ story.. like the whole Roman empire washing (pilatus) it's hands in innocence etc.

It's talks with researchers about the ehmm basically coming together of the new testament and the parralells it shows with how the roman Empire used to 'take over' other religions in a sneaky way.

It's not so much Christ myth (although it is abit according to the wikipedia definition, Jesus Christ is a rank/title, not a birth name) But they go about Yoshua one of the possible real names) but that the roman empire twisted his rebelion into something else.

The intro is always a bit of a puts sunglasses on goof, but the interviews are very nice. (the whole podcast is very good, just skip the intro for beginners, it's a media-remix he likes to do)

I think it's a total load of bull-biscuits. All this will do is continue pushing people to new platforms; so in that sense it's good.

My thoughts from there, are that all people's Right to be heard should be honored, if you're easily offended don't listen. If whoever is speaking means harm, then be ready to protect yourself; the real world.

Also, there will always be someone, or people that think, and act differently; it's in human nature to be something more than a follower.

Tolerance is a two way street, and needs to be viewed objectively. I think the best anyone on an individual level can do is fight for everyone to exercise their Inalienable Rights; while at the same time, realizing their happiness in the world will have to be found from within. It's simply not anyone's 'exclusive world'.

The ones carrying out these attacks are no Moslems at all since they fail to “cast truth at falsehood,” according to the following edict in the Koran!

    In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.
    Cast truth at falsehood.
    The Koran: Chapter 21, verse 18.

The Holocaust was an inside job Adolf Hitler was a Jew, Jews and traitor Americans perped the 911 attacks not Osama bin Laden and nineteen crazy Arabs, there were no Japanese planes at Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941 .. abortion is genocide.

Martin Luther & Coretta King, black Secret Serviceman Abraham Bolden and Andy Warhol were in the firing party on the Grassy Knoll, when US President John Kennedy was shot from ambush in Dallas, TX. Nov. 22, 1963 .. terror bombings world wide are the work of Zion and Israel.

Jews infiltrated German politics then perped the Holocaust in the name of the German ppl, like they infiltrated US politics perped 911 then established the bogus War on Terror, like they infiltrated Turkish politics then perpetrated the Armenian Genocide.

 In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 Were it not that Allah checks some people by means of others,
 There would have been demolished monasteries, churches,
 Synagogues and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned.

 Allah will surely support those who support Him,
 Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.
 The Koran, Sura 22, V 40.

 Among the People of the Scripture is a community who stand in prayer
 Who believe in Allah and the Last Day, who enjoin right, forbid wrong
 And hasten to good deeds, those are among the righteous.
 The Koran, Sura 3, V 110.

Nor does Islam grant license to harass Christian ppl in any way, while those assailing Christian infrastructure under the banner of Islam, remain in contempt of the precept that forbids attacks on places of worship of any kind.

False Moslems who fail to hurl truth are described elsewhere in the Koran as "lower than the beasts of the field," I just call 'em wogs.

Funny, but not accurate.

The murican and most known 'satanism' is from LaVey (The Satanic bible):

https://www.churchofsatan.com/

https://www.xeper.org/

and where basically a counter culture against the hypocrisy of the Christians (The introduction in the Satanic bible (less then a page and it's a small book) sates clearly how and why the chruch of satan.) so basically Hedonistic Secularism with some song/dance/ritual for the fun and a large dose of ego stroking.

Then we get to 'Satan' as portrayed by Christians which took a BIG transformation over time, from the Arch-angel who wasn't to fond of humans, to the angel that asked edgy questions to Jesus in the desert to somehow THE RULER OF HELL AND THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL!!!! hiss hiss. Not all the Christians (followers of the path of the Christ) were or are crazy like that though, but that's another talk....

How the 'old testament' got mixed up with the enlightenment of Jesus, authoritarians may know, but after some many years the roman empire came to take up the name of the followers of the Christ and watered it down/mixed it up even more than the early church fathers and again later we ended up with a Chruch who slaughtered (semi slaughtered, raping the women and children was also 'Christ like' to them )everyone who 'worshipped' something else. From this messy tradition came the naming Satanist and the sorts. If you as a stranger to the bible and the desert answer too many time with 'what?' when asked about Christ you and your tribe/familily were Satanists.

Some more murdering, burning (Hey Jean d'arc talked to god, but was burned anyway, sidenote, somehow she was a Satanist, but was she? These rumors made of her {probably friend zoned anyway] 'boy'friend a mass child murder to gain her nack from the after life because the Church told him stories how only the 'cruel satanists could do necromancy' Man, talking about backfired fake news. [as Necromancy, what it entails, is a no no as in not possible in most oral tradition religions/practices]

Okay this is getting long.

Satanism isn't a thing and never was until someone for power reasons wanted someone slaughtered. It's a brand victimized (by the church) religions sometimes take because Christ was cool and didn't slaughter what he did not understood, didn't even kill this Satan figure.

Aka Satanism, when defined by Christians usually represents a religion that (contrary to church led Christianity) does not kill/reject/despise other forms of religion because it usually involves a personal journey and the only dogma is a guiding instead of a law.

again, trying to come to a short conclusion about this meme...

What 'Church led Christians' define/brand Satanism is more akin to a tolerable religion in the eyes of atheists because it's a personal journey and you don't bother people with it unless you both agree to delve into it.

I guess the person who made this philosoraptor was triggered by the lack of atheist response to the baphometh statue, which really had nothing to do with any real religion except some Laveyian cringe larp.

Satanism is a Church invention, their lies inspired some fallen of their own path to think the ways the Church made up how 'Satanists are and work' were real practices.

More Modern: Satanism is a Chruch led Psyop, more claiming to be 'Satanist' are just 'Bros before church, because the church rapes children'.

For the people who still think SATAN is a scary thing, please read the new testament and stop when Jesus is gone, because then it goes 'Murican Satan panicy' real fast or watch this vid and be meditate on how it's not awful : https://vimeo.com/62694560

The Silence Stops Now: Massive rally planned outside November US Conference of Catholic Bishops meeting

Multiple Catholic organizations are collaborating to organize a massive rally at the upcoming meeting of the USCCB in Baltimore in November

https://files.catbox.moe/ddbalr.png

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will have its annual meeting in Baltimore November 12-15, 2018.

The Silence Stops Now Coalition is committed to ending the culture of clerical silence that has enabled the sexual predation and destruction of lives for decades.

To this end, we will be organizing the Silence Stops Now rally in Baltimore to demand an end to the silence, to insist on the resignation of those responsible, the prosecution of any criminal activity, and an independent investigation of the leadership of the Catholic Church in the United States.

Church Militant is seeking a headcount estimate of those planning to attend to help with proper permitting and logistics. You can register and sign up for updates here: http://thebishopsknew.com/

This is an opportunity for Catholics and non-Catholics alike to turn out in force together and send a loud and clear message that abuse of kids won't be tolerated. Please share this far and wide!

Yo! With all the crazy pedo shit in the Catholic church, I'm completely on the fence about who to support. I'm anti pedo. Is there a Catholic anti pedo anything!?

I like the attack on institutionalized dogmatic religion in any form. This is clearly an secular/other attempt to show the favoritism of Christianity. Thanks to the 'Satanic Panic' and maybe The Satanic Bible (to those who never read that cringy piece of fan fiction [I mean Enochian make believe (because Enochian is something totally different) dribble, don't thread on me would be more suited for that whole book] somehow this spawned a believe in a Harry Potter like satanism under (presumably) Christians.

This whole pointing out that expressing 'certain thoughts/principles' doesn't mean one IS those thoughts. {aka The 'satanic satue' would somehow mean you do the diidlydoo with children or oter horrible acts, and more over that if you condemn that statue that you don't do those things [which is more dangerous imho]}

Anyway Jesus never spoke of these and other things and, especially when reading the nag hamadi library, he speaks about you, yourself and the world. Not about rules, laws and pretentious ideals, it's about the here and now not past or future, so either statue would be a waste of shame to all that would genuinely worship either.

It's about YOU And not your needs/satisfactions

Report: Pennsylvania priests molested over 1,000 children. "Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing. They hid it all," by Mnemonic in Christianity

These cases are mostly not the result of 'pedo predators' but more of an (still not justifiable in anyway) 'this is all we can do with sex and the urges'. It's a dark joke that priests and the like are punished (or excommunicated) for porn, masturbation, sex with adults and prostitution but when it comes to this it's covered up.

By the end of the Sunday on this it doesn't seem to matter. If the Christians get slaughtered, again, it's 'guess the book burning and dumbing down worked'. That's about the size of it. And as depressing as it sounds, I was reminded that the cannibals are willing to nuke DC to protect their operations. That they run the game. Further, if bringing light to future events can cause a disruption in thnefarious scenario and force it to move to Plan B, then being secretive and coy and coded about FEMA & DHS is silly. I find when I discover hidden, in plain sight, possibilities I think they should stay hidden. It's a crazy psy-op vortex - that makes one stronger somehow. I guess trying to figure out a work around.
