In this sign CONQUER!
Yeah! Right! Sure! Whatever you say god!
The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) is an Evangelical Protestant denomination within Christianity.
Founded by Rev. Albert Benjamin Simpson in 1887, the Christian & Missionary Alliance did not start off as a denomination, but rather began as two distinct parachurch organizations: The Christian Alliance which focused on the pursuit and promotion of the Higher Christian life and The Evangelical Missionary Alliance, which focused on mobilizing "consecrated" Christians in the work of foreign missionary efforts.
How could this be more ironic, paradoxical, contradictory or just plain downright stupid, blind and moronic from the man who sent 154 “missionaries” to die in the “fields” of Afghanistan in the past 4 years?
Steve Harper himself, a turncoat, a Josephian coat of many colours anyway, since he has tried every party possible just to get ahead: More faithful to his church than his party apparently.
My only question is as always in this so-called democracy why do people keep electing stupid people and the reason seems just to be simpler and simpler it is that we ARE STUPID and democracy obviously doesn’t work. For one thing it is but a big illusion.
One of my “failures”, I guess, is that I cannot think of a better system.
Some sort of “good” dictatorship does not exist.
"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely".
No human being on earth can sustain power AND integrity at the same time.
They are diametrically opposite to one another and of different magnetic poles.
Theocracy is out of the question since theo here doesn’t talk to us
and his ministers are dangerous freaks.
Plus theo if I recall correctly was quite a warmonger himself.
I mean talk about genocide after genocide.
And if he was theo I mean why didn’t he just wipe the slate clean himself again, some sort of a mini flood or something? Or a local earthquake or landslide or a few bolts of lightning well placed would have done the trick.
There always seem to be some sort of TESTING GAME going on somewhere ever since that bloody tree right smack in the middle of the bloody garden for Christ’s sake AND with a WOMAN in there? WTF DID you expect?
Why do corrupted men always have to do his dirty work?
Eventually they get it all wrong and start doing it all by themselves and for themselves.
Theo did not have a problem with collateral damages apparently or even slavery for that matter.
The only thing though is that if you had blood on your hands
(blood that he would have ordered)
you were still okay but you could not build him a house.
1Ki 15:5 Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
Oh yeah and forgetful too apparently about that census that sent a few down to hell and if you’re on the good side you also can have many wives and concubines another thing frowned upon these days not even mentioning how old exactly WERE those concubines because now we would be talking real Jerry Lee Lewis troubles here.
Trying to understand the theo of the OT is quite mind boggling.
The theo of the NT now is a much cooler guy it would seem, I kinda like him in fact, ‘cept for a few old traits maybe.
But even that theo of the NT has been totally lost and misused at least since the days of Constantine.
In this sign CONQUER! Yeah! Right! Sure! Whatever you say god!
You and every other blood thirsty god there has been for millenniums, the favourite god of arms manufacturers in fact they worship at his altar and laugh all the way to the bank safe and secure why we sacrifice our virgins on their god’s altar.
My theo of the NT is probably an Amish or a Hutterite maybe even a Mennonite:
Someone who minds his own business and is not blood thirsty, in fact quite peaceful and peace loving.
But you won’t see any of them at the head of a nation now.
If there really was a separation of state and religion we might have less wars but greed has no religion at all so we would still have some.
Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together,
So far I like this part a lot but wait there is more:
Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Isa 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Isa 1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Here comes that bloody sword again!
I guess he is not the one who wrote
he who lives by the sword, dies by the sword.
Something seems so definitely wrong or should I say HUMAN about this.
Free Will eh? Hmmmmmmm!
As I said earlier
There ALWAYS seems to be some sort of TESTING GAME going on somewhere ever since that bloody tree right smack in the middle of the bloody garden for Christ’s sake AND with a WOMAN in there? WTF DID you expect? J
