What it says on the tin.

I have made many posts here on what the bible really teaches about sex, and granted I have come to the conclusion that the modern church culture is often much stricter than the biblical narrative. However there are far larger issues at stake right now. Antifa wishes to take down America (not sure they are strong enough to, but they hate our nation), there is corruption at the highest levels of government. We need to continue to pray and push that the light be shone in the dark places so the corrupt elites may either repent on their knees, be dealt with, or flee and go live somewhere else. I think the Antifa protesters are manifesting a deep demonic evil that is now coming to the surface. People are more and more revealing who they really are. I think spiritual power is being released that is making it harder to hide evil. God's perfect will is for people to let deep seated evil in their hearts rise to the surface so that people can repent. However if people refuse to repent then the evil more easily manifests outwardly. I believe we are in a season where this kind of thing is going to keep increasing. I do pray that every single government official involved in corruption repents. If they do not make no mistake, God is going to take care of business with them. Some who have avoided being caught for years or decades may suddenly find themselves in courts. Almost every day I hear a new news story breaking on corruption. It will no longer be hidden. It is going to be exposed and dealt with. In the natural you may see people end up in court, maybe a few suddenly dropping from a heart attack or getting some fatal disease, but the Hand of God is behind it all. God's justice is going to increasingly manifest itself in the natural realm.

I keep on finding love in the wrong place. Sleazy place (by definition). But a high class one though. Why don't models (amateur models) go to church? I know the ladies in the church have their beauty inside. But see, that's the thing, I am shallow.

I discovered my natural talent for lucid dreaming a while ago , although i have been having these experiences ever since a i was a child. There is a underlying world in the astral real , or dream state. The first layer or the first gate is the dream itself, in which you must awaken in order to be lucid , to realize you are dreaming you need a trigger , something odd or out of place in that dream that you begin to question its credibility to physical reality. Once you realize you are in a dream you are aproaching lucidity , you can then either assume you are in a alien place and fall flat on your face or take control of your surroundings by understanding this is YOUR world , the one you have created. Once you make this your absolute truth you will begin to understand lucidity and dreams a bit more. You will also understand you are in a sense , a Creator. You have the innate hability to forge worlds right in front of your eyes with the command of a thought , this is true power, Willpower. You can use your Will in your dreams to influence almost every outcome , as long as you are the only "player" influencing said dream. You see this is only the first gate , or shall i say the kindergarden of lucid dreaming , where you play and experiment with yourself and your natural habilies. When you break the second gate you will realize your dreams sometimes will have other entities in it. And i mean real conscious entities , separate from your own creations. These beings are either alien or human , and their intention will vary greatly. Some of them are leeches , beings that leech life energy from humans by feeding on their emotions , there are many beings that do this to gain power , i call them The Hollow. They will try to scare you or create situations in your dreams that will scare you or create any strong human emotion so they can feed on it. What we call nightmares are actually just these beings orchestrating dreams to influence the Dreamer. They only act this way in the first gate , they will shapeshift to mantain their little dream and trick you to believe this is your dream , when in fact they control it with a few "agents" , but as soon as the Dreamer is lucid or begins to aproach lucidity they will flee since they can no longer influence you or trick you , and also are scarred that you might destroy them.

You see if you die in someone elses dream you die for real. Thats why it is dangerous to invade someones dream and if you should do it make sure that person is lucid and knows who you are , and allows you to be in their dream.

Anyway , this one time i was dreaming in a non-lucid state , and i had a trigger , this trigger was i saw a exact duplicate of my body walking down the street , acting like a complete fool. Upon seeing this i got lucid almost instantly and i aproached the entity posing as me. I actually was so mad that i took complete control of this dream and suddenly the shapeshifter was trapped in my grip , i had him pressed against the floor and my voice echoed in the sky as i said "I am your master" in the most epic and wrathful voice , i felt like Zeus. Then i remember beams of light coming out of the shapeshifter eyes as if i was purging him from my dream. I am not sure if i killed him but if not he will never come back to my dream , thats for sure.

Anyway im still learning the ropes to break the second gate but i know it is a dangerous place out there. If you took the time to read this and have similar experiences about lucid dreaming feel free to share , im always glad to read :)

Have a good day and happy lucid dreaming

Mysteries #1

advice

People are born not knowing what they are , and then they spend their whole lives thinking they know what they are. Only to die and realize they never knew

"The thing that hath been It is that which shall be And that wich has been done Is that which shall be done And there is no new thing under the Sun"

You see , humans are no longer in touch with their instincts. The Natural self as been replaced as if an impairment to self growth. And reconstructed to the image of Man was born the Ego, this mask that creates the illusion of self thought and action. Humans have had their truest and deepest connection with the Universe and Life itself siezed from them by the arrogance of their denial. Denial only births Denial, and so are we. Through the Dark age we stumble from step to another step looking for something we will never find.

Predestination in the sense of God choosing who to save and who to leave unsaved is false. Yes the scripture teaches people need the Holy Spirit to draw them to Christ. Calvinists teach that the drawing cannot be resisted even by free will, and if people remain unsaved it is because God never drew them to begin with. This contradicts many passages in the bible. The only places where the bible talks about predestination is where it talks about those who ARE believers are predestined to become conformed to the image of Christ. Predestination is not for salvation, it is for those who become saved to be conformed to the image of Christ. The ultimate end on that is to be resurrected like Christ at the end of the age.

There is an extreme wing of Calvinism that says that EVERYTHING that happens is predestined by God, there is no free will. So that rape, that murder, that torture, was all predestined. God may allow things but they actually say God CAUSES such things. The problem with that is the bible says that God is not the author of sin and does not lead people or tempt people into sin. The early church had a militant view of fighting evil, that is to spread the gospel, teach the bible, and pray, and do spiritual warfare, to change themselves and those around them to make the world a better place. If not perfect, then at least better. The extreme Calvinists have a defeatist attitude and say what will be will be, and say well at least WE are going to go to heaven in the end. Their attitude may end up being a self-fulfilling prophesy. They have put down their spiritual weapons for the forces of hell to devour them. Many modern Christians have degrees of this defeatist attitude. May we repent. The old teaching of the Catholic Church calls the church in heaven the Church Triumphant. They call the church on earth the Church Militant. I don't agree with all Catholic doctrine, but they have this one RIGHT! Amen!

I did some research, and am coming to the conclusion that I John 5:7 "For there are three who bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Spirit, and these three are one", DOES belong in the bible, and WAS in the original manuscripts. It is missing from many ancient Greek manuscripts from about 300 - 400 A.D. There is a reason for that. My research shows that parts of Europe (The Byzantine Empire) was very heavily influenced by Arian heretics at that time, and that they removed that verse simply because it went against their theology from their copies of Greek texts. Remember in the East they spoke Greek in churches, and never had to translate the New Testament for a long time like in the Western Church. Arians believed that Jesus was a created being and therefore they denied the Trinity. That verse goes against their theology, so they removed it. God is not pleased when people remove verses from the bible because they go against your beliefs. The correct thing to do in that situation is instead repent and change YOUR beliefs, instead of trying to change what the bible says.

In Greek the grammar is mismatched if you remove this verse. It is in the Latin Vulgate, and Jerome commented on how this verse was being removed by the Arians.

Check out this page: http : //www . kjvtoday . com/home/the-father-the-word-and-the-holy-ghost-in-1-john-57#TOC-Extant-Greek-manuscripts

I just find it interesting that the texts used for many modern bibles are missing verses and fragments that support the deity of Christ, the blood of Christ for atonement, the Trinity, even the virgin birth is muddied somewhat. I find it hard to believe that they weren't removed by scribal errors or deliberate action by people throughout church history who didn't WANT to believe those doctrines, and didn't want them in the bible. Then they could say see see see here is what the bible says....and use it to bully you when you say well wait a minute, what about what might have been in there originally.

Case in point, this is more of a translation issue and which texts are used, but the KJV uses the word fornication to indicate sexual sin, whereas many modern translations say "sexual immorality". I prefer the word "fornication" because it is more precise to what it means, and it is defined by the bible itself to mean all sexual sins which are listed. It would include incest, animals, sex between men, taking another man's wife or betrothed, and temple prostitution. The Greek Septuagint uses the word "pornea", out of which we get the English word fornication, which in 1611 meant roughly the same thing, but the definition should really be taken by how the bible defines it in a its larger context. Note that many biblical heroes kept concubines (women they were NOT married to) and the bible NEVER defines that as a sin. "Sexual immorality" COULD be understood in the same context when people read modern bibles, but the thing is often it is ingrained in modern culture to think of "sexual immorality" as mainly unmarried sex, which takes away from the original meanings of "pornea" and even "fornication" when taken its biblical context. Many are tempted to take the term "sexual immorality" and ATTACH any meaning they want to it, sometimes accurate, sometimes not. The Hebrew word for "pornea" has a similar meaning to the word in Greek. I also recently found out that when God tells ancient Hebrews in the laws not to be prostitutes in the Law, THAT Hebrew word is SPECIFIC to temple prostitution. Ancient Hebrew has other words for secular prostitution which is not used in any of those passages. That is interesting.

This is an article by Christian HYPOCRITES. They do detail some of Trump's PAST sins, probably accurately. Granted sometimes past sins of famous people are overblown, but let's say this report of Trump's PAST sins is accurate. Trump has now publicly apologized and repented of at least some of his past sins. He is the most praying president ever. He is known to hold prayer meetings every day for at least a few hours, especially to see guidance from God's Spirit. If these Christians want to condemn Trump for his PAST, let them look in the mirror FIRST, point the FINGER, and condemn themselves for ALL of their PAST sins, and declare themselves unfit to be used by God for anything important and fit to burn in hell FOREVER. HYPOCRITES REPENT REPENT REPENT. HYPOCRITES REPENT REPENT REPENT. HYPOCRITES REPENT REPENT REPENT. I do not apologize for calling my fellow Christians out when they play the hypocrite. Aren't ALL SINS supposed to be forgiven when one trusts the Lord to save them LIKE TRUMP HAS, even if that is recent? If you do not accept his repentance then you ARE A HYPOCRITE, no matter your past sins. His wealth is not a sin, maybe he had a greedy attitude in the past, which is a sin, but now forgiven, and he has a new attitude or is growing into a new attitude as a believer. Two people can have the same amount of wealth, and two different attitudes, one sinful, the other not. Many Christians need to repent, not to get saved, but to grow spiritually, unless some who call themselves Christians who are not, then they need to trust Christ to get saved before they stand before Him on judgement day and are told "I NEVER KNEW YOU, INTO THE FIRE PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS". Take this warning very very very soberly and seriously.

I have some videos depicting the Army of God. Mighty warriors all of them:

[filtered hyperlink] [filtered hyperlink]

[filtered hyperlink]

The song is in Arabic or Coptic, but the YouTube page provides a translation of the lyrics for us.

Translation of song: Chorus: "Exalt the name of Christ, lift His name up with your songs, call the heroes, His heroes, to walk ahead of you with the cross" ; Say He is risen and death has no power, and there is no forgiveness except through His blood; and the Light of the Gospel is greater; Say he conquered darkness and its power; He brightened our days; and the light of day is greater; Say He conquered His enemies; we conquered by witnessing to Him and by His blood; and our inheritance with Him is greater; live the joy of heaven, as Satan dons the clothes of grief; and our praises are greater"

ISIS is the FAKE army of God. This IS the REAL ARMY OF GOD. They think dying in the service of murdering for God will get them a ticket to paradise. It will get them a ticket to an elevator going down fast......unless they repent and have faith in Jesus Christ.

Comments on these videos please...I am very blessed by them. It aids in spiritual warfare in my own life.

Demonic forces should be afraid, very afraid...Baal should lock his fortress down as if that will do any good, well it is a good try anyway.

The gates of hell not prevailing against God's assembly are GATES. Meaning hell is the fortress and God's army is laying siege to it. NOT the church being under siege with demonic fortress surrounding its walls. Often this is true but the church is supposed to be the besieging army breaking down the gates of hell to go in and rescue the people that are the prisoners. May the real Army of God grow ever bigger and bigger and the people in it do target focused prayer and repentance, hone themselves for every higher levels of training. May the apostate churches repent and join or stay out of the way.

I am a faithful, bible-thumping Christians. There is a particular group of street preachers I can't stand at all. Their tactics are stupid, even some of their DOCTRINE is wrong, ESPECIALLY on what they are telling people they need to do to be saved. If you go out and street preach, FIRST make sure you are telling people how to be saved the correct way, otherwise you are wasting a lot of time. God can use them in the sense that people like ME can point out to unbelievers that they are presenting how NOT to get saved, and acting in a manner that Christians or even human beings should NOT act. They can be used as object lessons. Not very flattering but I don't care. I am done being politically correct anyway. Right now the Holy Spirit in me won't allow it. I am allowed to be and even sense an encouragement to be respectful, but not politically correct where I pretend to agree with someone else on an issue or belief just to make them feel better. These street preachers teach that you must stop sinning to get saved. They claim that they don't sin or don't sin much. They ignore large parts of the bible that talks about sinning with your attitudes and in your mind, and focus more on outward behavior. It is easier to change outward behavior but not your mind and then deceive yourself into thinking you are sinless or almost sinless. They are also very strict about rules they say people should follow that are not based on the bible or a very loose interpretation of some scriptures and take things out of context. One thought life thing people do get wrong is Matt 5:27-28 where people think it is a sin to be attracted or fantasize or even desire a woman. The Greek word for woman here, gune, can mean woman or wife depending on context. Since Matt 5:27 is speaking of adultery gune here means another man's wife or betrothed. The Greek word for lust also means a strong desire beyond simple attraction. So adultery of the heart means to strongly desire another man's wife or in the modern sense maybe a serious girlfriend he is committed to or fiancée. It does not mean a single woman at all. If you were to take that verse to out of context, adultery of the heart to "lust after a woman", you would have to say that even includes your own wife. That is utterly senseless. We have a choice, we can either interpret the bible contextually so that things just make sense, or we can rip things out of context and end up with senseless beliefs and look stupid to people who might ask good questions. However it is still very possible to sin in your mind and many people do so in many varied ways.

Also on salvation we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ for eternal life. We can do so because he paid for all sins at the cross, and then was raised from the dead. What is interesting about these street preachers is they almost never talk about salvation in Christ. Or if they do, they do it in the sense of "believing in Jesus" is just one more thing on a list of things you have to DO to be saved, such as "have faith in Jesus, stop these sins, do these other things", blah blah bah. That is a false gospel. They are also very angry often. The bible does tell Christians to often be more kind when attempting to correct others and be more stern only in more extreme cases or when the other person just knows better but is being really stubborn.

One thing I am really more stern about lately are many modern churches entering into a state of apostasy, but I feel more stern to Christians who should know better vs. unbelievers. Oh ya as a Christian you have or can get indwelling Holy Spirit if you are not a Christian but put your faith in Jesus Christ. I think the Holy Spirit in me is causing me to be more gentle to people who don't know as much, but more stern to Christians who should know better but don't. This means both apostates and people like these street preachers who are stricter than the bible and who twist scriptures.

One wonders how many converts they gain. What comes to mind with these street preachers, is what JESUS SAID, JESUS SAID, JESUS SAID, to the Pharisees, "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves." In videos of these street preachers on YouTube I have not seen them win ONE SINGLE convert. A friend says he caught one video once of them gaining one convert. That is amazing to me in and of itself.

I know of an Independent Fundamental Baptist Pastor who also has lots of rules that are based more on the twisting of Scriptures but his beliefs and doctrines are much better than these Street Preachers. In spite of his blind spots and weaknesses he has won MANY converts the gospel of Christ when he has gone out to harvest souls. See the contrast? I have boldness for the Lord. I am not ashamed of my Christian faith. I AM ASHAMED to be associated with people that twist the gospel and twist the scriptures and make it harder for people to enter the kingdom of heaven than it should be. I am NOT ASHAMED of Christ. I AM ASHAMED OF THESE STREET PREACHERS. I would prefer that they not call themselves Christians.

For all of their preaching they preach very little about Christ and faith in Him for salvation. When REAL Christians confront them, they berate and make fun of them, and call them lukewarm, compromisers, etc. THEY are compromising the gospel of Christ. If people trust what they say how to get saved instead of Christ Jesus, the people hearing their message will remain unsaved, unless they are already saved, but then it may throw their life of faith off track the Holy Spirit corrects them and hopefully they will listen to such correction. Christians or people who call themselves Christians have no business acting like modern version of the Pharisees. Acting like that calls for repentance repentance repentance. Since we are saved by the grace of God through faith, part of living a Christian life does mean examining your self and repenting in a process of spiritual growth.

Just by reading many of the reprobate titles posted on this blog sight it is clear to see that the culture is in the sewer. We need Jesus to renew our hearts and minds. We need to ask for God's forgiveness through Jesus Christ The Savior.. Place your faith in the Lord who died to save you and allow the Holy Spirit to transform your mind and heart. Read your Bible and draw near to God.God bless.

When I was a younger Christian I USED to think God preserved the bible in the sense of EVERY single verse in EVERY single translation. I know KNOW this NOT to be true. This IS true if the translators do a true translation of the original words from Greek and Hebrew and don't try to interpret FOR the reader what they THINK it should say. TRUE translations do indeed faithfully render what God originally said in the original languages. However with some versions of the bible the translators did NOT do such a good job with this. God preserves His Word more in the sense that there will always be some faithful versions and translations existing in every generation rather than people assuming that ALL versions are just as good as each other. I do not care if my post offends some Christians. It is true. I can PROVE it by giving a few examples:

From Gen 6:2 -

New International Version the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.

New Living Translation The sons of God saw the beautiful women and took any they wanted as their wives.

English Standard Version the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose.

New American Standard Bible that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.

King James Bible That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Holman Christian Standard Bible the sons of God saw that the daughters of mankind were beautiful, and they took any they chose as wives for themselves.

International Standard Version some divine beings noticed how attractive human women were, so they took wives for themselves from a selection that pleased them.

NET Bible the sons of God saw that the daughters of humankind were beautiful. Thus they took wives for themselves from any they chose.

New Heart English Bible that God's sons saw that men's daughters were beautiful, and they took for themselves wives of all that they chose.

GOD'S WORD® Translation The sons of God saw that the daughters of other humans were beautiful. So they married any woman they chose.

JPS Tanakh 1917 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they chose.

New American Standard 1977 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.

Jubilee Bible 2000 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair, and they took for themselves wives of all whom they chose.

King James 2000 Bible That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

American King James Version That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

American Standard Version that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.

Douay-Rheims Bible The sons of God seeing the daughters of men, that they were fair, took themselves wives of all which they chose.

Darby Bible Translation that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and took themselves wives of all that they chose.

English Revised Version that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.

Webster's Bible Translation That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all whom they chose.

World English Bible that God's sons saw that men's daughters were beautiful, and they took for themselves wives of all that they chose.

Young's Literal Translation and sons of God see the daughters of men that they are fair, and they take to themselves women of all whom they have chosen.

Notice how God's Word (NOT) so-called translation says the daughter's of men and OTHER humans, indicating that they take this verse to mean that the "sons of God" as used in this passage are human men, rather than angels. Contextually to say it means angels makes more sense. It explains HOW the giants came about in the earth both before and after Noah. For all the problems with the NIV I actually really like how the NIV renders this verse. I also really like how the ISV renders it too. In ancient Hebrew thought angels were called divine beings, not just God Himself. Doesn't mean the angels WERE God, but they were often thought of as divine beings (but limited in power compared to God) because they are spirits sent from God (except for those that fell). So we can see from this verse most translations of the bible are pretty good, one is problematic. When translating the bible people doing the work should pray HARD to weed out pre-conceived bias and not let their pre-conceived beliefs color their translation work.

Here is a another famous verse a few translations mess up:

New International Version Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

New Living Translation Peter replied, "Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

World English Bible Peter said to them, "Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Young's Literal Translation and Peter said unto them, 'Reform, and be baptized each of you on the name of Jesus Christ, to remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,

Most are pretty good. The Greek word for "repent" is metanoia, which to change your mind. In the context of this passage it would indicate changing your mind on what you think of Christ, because before this Peter goes into how they crucified Christ. I would take it to mean you should recognize you have sin, change your mind regarding Christ as Messiah, and trust Him to save you. Young's Literal is not so literal (reform indicates changing your LIFE which would indicate works instead of faith. Repent is a better word for faithfully render the Greek "metanoia". GODS NOT WORD translation indicates good works to get saved again, I am not surprised that that "translation" messes some things up. The Douay-Rheims bible says "do penance", come on, give me a break, the Israelites among the crowd just had Christ crucified. Does saying ten Our Father's and 30 Hail Mary's going to cut it when they stand before a perfectly Holy God on Judgement Day, if they tell Him, "we prayed the Rosary 20 times" He will just toss them into the fire without even thinking about it, but REPENTING, now that is something God would accept and credit forgiveness to them for their sins.

Matthew 6:10 in most bibles says "they will be done earth as in heaven" from the Lord's prayer, but here the Message Bible says "as above, so below" this is a saying of occultists and does not mention God's will. One can address a will above and have it NOT be God's will, but rather the will of fallen angels floating around in the SECOND heaven above the earth. This Message Bible sounds more like to a message from Lucifer attempting to pose as a message from God. The Message Bible is an extreme example, but people wanting to know Christ and grow spiritually should use other bible translations instead. Some study I did indicates the phrase "as above, so below" goes back to ANCIENT magicians and occultists. The Message Bible is a perfect fit for apostate churches of which many seem to be headed that way.

I used to hear Christians encourage people to attend church after leading them to have faith in Christ, but at THIS point it HIGHLY depends on WHICH churches you are talking about. If ALL churches in an are apostate or too compromised to attend, then my advice is to attend NO church and attempt to gather with fellow Christians more informally.

I am a Christian with a hard cock. Well not 24/7, are you kidding, that would be a medical emergency, but shall we say often enough. I am single. I do not feel that it is a sin. I am not joking, some may find this post funny, which I do myself, but underneath it all, this post is not intended to be a joke. I am not some liberal Christian either. I do believe the bible is the inspired Word of God. (Granted some translations are better than others, in fact some translations in a few verses actually do teach errors, that is beyond the scope of this post). Bible translations can teach errors if the translators try to hard to interpret what they THINK a verse should say rather than faithfully rendering what it says in the original Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, etc... The bible is intended to be interpreted by CONTEXT. We need to realize that even chapters and verses were added in translations and did not exist in the original manuscripts or even copies in the original languages. Regarding having a hard cock and using it accordingly, first of all many may bring up Matt 5:27-28 to say that it is a sin. Well in Greek the word for woman is "gune", and gune can mean wife or woman in Greek, WHICH it is talking about depends on the CONTEXT the word is used in the sentence or passage. Since Matt 5:27 regards adultery, and adultery in the bible means taking (or in Hebrew ENTERING) another man's wife, Matt 5:27 regards lusting after a married (or possibly betrothed) woman ONLY, and not ANY woman. Also lust in Greek can mean an extreme or strong desire, so finding another man's wife attractive is not a sin. It is wise to guard your heart, but neither be paranoid and beat yourself up if you find a married woman attractive. I would put the sin described in Matt 5:27 as a STRONG desire to take a married woman. Also on fornication, even though the dictionary says it means unmarried sex, by CONTEXT the bible says no such thing. The Old Testament is full of biblical heroes having concubines (meaning like lovers or girlfriends). Nowhere is it called a sin. Fornication by how it is used in the bible means any of the list of sexual sins in the Old Testament, and especially temple prostitution. To thicken the plot here when people went to visit temple prostitutes there was often a belief one was having sex with the god or goddess through the prostitute as a proxy. Since the false gods and goddesses are really either demons or fallen angels, one can REALLY understand why God is unhappy with this practice. So my hard cock aimed at single women either in my thoughts or in person, or some situation in between, is not a sin. Chuckle at this post, but consider that my interpretation of the bible might be right. By the way, I have read a few verses out of certain bible translations that are NOT accurate. These translations are pieces of rubbish and offend God. The translators and publishers need to repent. One translation says "as above, so below" instead of "your will be done on earth as in heaven". "As above, so below", is a saying of occultists and really means "as above in the second heaven, where demonic forces and fallen angels float around, so below on earth". So this saying is an abomination and does not belong in any bible. But since many churches are in apostasy, it fits. Apostate Christians need to repent on bended knees so that God can use them for real and they stop playing church.

GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS. WHAT!!! DOES THE LORD NEED TO DRILL THAT STATEMENT INTO YOUR HEADS....GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS!!!! STOP PREDICTING THE DATE OF THE END...I HAVE IT FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT THE LORD IS NOT PLEASED WITH SUCH PREDICTIONS AT ALL.

I used to revere Augustine when I was a younger and more naïve Christian. Now that I am an older and wiser Christian I can see and admit the bad as well as the good with him. I do not agree with his beliefs on sexuality. He taught that sexual pleasure ITSELF was a sin. He also taught that God barely tolerated marital sex for the begetting of children. BOTH positions are UNBIBLICAL. These two beliefs contradict CLEAR STATEMNETS IN THE BIBLE THE BIBLE THE BIBLE!!!!! He had a concubine he really was in love with, but left her for another woman to marry for reasons of social status. He should have just stuck with his concubine, he had a child with her, they were a family. (I heard he did go back to his concubine later in life). Augustine seems to have the attitude that you can either have God or sex, but not both. The biblical position is that we put God FIRST, and then enjoy our sexuality without doing sexual sins according to the bible, and NOT tradition, not man-made opinions.

I do not believe that the Greek word "porneia" translated into fornication in the King James bible means unmarried sex. Porniea means the list of sexual sins in the bible, including incest, bestiality, adultery (ENTERING another man's wife in Hebrew LITERALLY), I think men with men, temple prostitution (which greatly offends God PRECISELY because it mixes sex with worship of fallen entities and evil spirits pretending to be gods, and sexual mixing with them either in attitude or more tangibly is a REALLY bad idea. On LUST in Matthew 5:27, the Greek word for woman is gune, it means WIFE or WOMAN depending on context. Since Jesus is speaking of adultery here, then the Greek word "gune" here means wife and NOT woman in general. Also lust means a strong overwhelming desire and NOT finding someone attractive.

I have heard some say that the church later in the first few centuries diverged from Judaism in that ancient Judaism had a very positive attitude to sex in general if you weren't committing sexual sins, but the church became negative to sex in general, some church leaders a few generations after the Apostles even called married sex "marital fornication". This is utterly ridiculous. It is based on Gnostic heresy infecting the thinking of such church leaders. Gnosticism often taught an ascetic lifestyle because they thought the spirit was all good and the physical world was all good. This lead to a belief that one either needed to be ascetic, or caused extreme indulgence without regard if what you were doing was specifically right or wrong, since they reasoned if the body was evil, it didn't matter what you did. Some Gnostics taught that you should sin on purpose because more spirit light emanated from you when you sinned. The Apostles in their writings call all of this heresy and even of the spirit of antichrist. Augustine had leftover baggage when he became a Christian and a bishop. He did write many great things, but we should recognize him as an imperfect human being and that we should filter out the bad stuff he had to say.

The biblical definition of fornication is not unmarried sex. The modern English dictionary says so, but the Greek word Porneia that is translated into fornication in the King James and some other bibles is more the list of sexual sins in the Old Testament and especially temple prostitution, and even spiritually speaking the worship of false gods without sex.

I am a Christian and I love sex. I am LETTING THE LORD WORK IN MY LIFE to remove remnants of guilt. The bible does tell us what is sexual sin, but it is NOT A SIN to be sexual in general. I do make efforts to seek the Lord first and not make sex an idol, but having said that, when I put sex in its proper place, I DO LOVE it and will never stop loving it, and I will never repent of my current attitude. I can grow and become more refined, but my attitude is based on the bible therefore why should I "repent". I save my repentance for actual sin, not non-sin or things that man-made opinion or man-made religion says is a sin, or even what religion inspired by demons says is a sin.

Why did the Son of God suffer and die so horribly? Because He paid for our sins. He never sinned. We all have sinned. It was for our sins that Jesus died. Receive Him as Lord and Savior. Turn away from sin. Follow Him, as He leads you and know God's peace and forgiveness- that one can only know through faith in Christ, and what He accomplished for us. God Bless

Here is a fascinating video: https:// [filtered hyperlink]. com/watch?v=oD3HevLL-Hs. I believe attempting Transhumanism is a GREAT SIN. We should repent before even trying it. I believe it is the SAME sin Adam and Eve committed in the Garden when they took the fruit and ate it. It is the SAME thing. I contend that the Mark of The Beast is a chip that will change your DNA and change people into Nephilim, making them unredeemable and fit only to burn in the lake of fire forever. https:// [filtered hyperlink] . com/watch?v=zMOd3cw-c8I

Transhumanism could put people into a state of a living hell they can't get out of for a long time, or in some cases, forever.

In the Old Testament God calls the offspring of fallen angels and humans bastards. The Hebrew word indicates illegitimate offspring. In the case of the Genesis 6 giants this is INDEED true. The word bastard MIGHT apply to other situations in the bible, but the giants and hybrid offspring are the FULLEST sense of the word as far as God is concerned. They are indeed BASTARDS. In the Old Testament the Israelites were RIGHTLY told by GOD, NOT RELIGIOUS OPINION, to WIPE OUT EVERY MEMBER of the tribes of giants. Men, women, children, even animals (they were hybridized in by the fallen angels and tribes of giants as well.) I think their purpose was to replace the human race created in God's image with their own kind and also to try to disrupt the bloodline of Christ. When God forbade intermarriage with other tribes it was often because those tribes were hybrids.

I believe in Faith and Truth, but not as a response to an argument or question except about timing. I have heard "Truth is Truth", as justification that what someone is saying is true. Guess what? That is not proof what you are saying is true. I believe in God, and I believe Jesus existed, everything I have researched and come across and a basic understanding of human nature only strengthened that belief. I don't expect everyone to believe what I believe, but I do hope that people seek the truth for themselves with an open mind. That doesn't mean you have to be stupid about things, just don't go judging something too quickly. Look at it from all angles. For instance, the Catholic church came into existence little by little between 200-500A.D. and much of their teachings were a merging of Old Testament, New Testament, and Pagan beliefs. After all, Jesus did not ever call himself God or God in the flesh, yet that is what was taught by the Catholics and later all the off shoots. Also, the Catholics, like most religions of the time deified those who seemed blessed or came in contact with Jesus, otherwise why would you pray to them? IE. Mary, the Saints, etc. And according to the 10 Commandments, we are not to worship carved images, yet what is Jesus on a cross? Jesus was a Jew and followed the rules of the Jews, yet recognized some were less important and more guidelines when they became unrealistic. Truth is indisputable logic with solid evidence, which sometimes requires and understanding of how things are in reality. Even some tests scientists do to determine what something is have enough variables they can be open to debate as to the validity of the test being solid evidence. All things are not simple, yet our simple minds want simple answers and refuse to understand anything further, even when it is explained in detail. Truth of anything usually becomes apparent if you understand all things about something, but fact is not everyone can handle the truth about everything because it's too much information. So, we tend to trust one expert or another that we have decided we can trust, but even as good as someone is, they can still be wrong. So, then the question comes to you as to just how important is that truth to you? That is why I think most people live their lives oblivious to a great deal of things going on in the world, because until it affects them, they don't want to care, because it's too hard to care about everything. But then in the end we get in the habit of only caring about ourselves, and not trying to understand anyone else. Complicated, right? Our society has gotten so complex with ideas, that we are overloaded with these thoughts and ideas, like picking what we like from a shopping website but not thinking too much about anyone thing. So, figure out what is important to you, and find the whole truth about it, and make sure to go back to the beginning of what you think you can trust as far as information, because the wrong base can crumble the entire idea. Faith.. Have faith that you will find a full understanding eventually, but don't think you need to have faith that something exists when you haven't even sought the existence nor done the research. You have to look for God and ask for help from Him to find the answers. Then keep your eye's open for clear answers. Then, go ahead and doubt. And ask for further understanding and wisdom. You will come across things that will make things clearer. For instance, there are some who believe in the Bible word for word simply because it hasn't changed much in the last 1500 years, but it's not the ones who had custody of it that you need question but the original writers. In fact, several variations of the same stories give the Gospels more validity than most of the rest, after all, when one person tells a story you have to trust the one, when several do then you have a higher chance of the truth being in amongst their words. Also, there is motivation, for instance, there is a story in Luke that shows that some of the Disciples were becoming thugish in their behavior when a couple that began traveling with the group didn't give up all their wealth to the "group" when they joined and died of shame or "God" struck them down. There are a hand full of stories I doubt the accuracy in the Bible because I know how people are, but that one I have no doubt they justified murdering a couple and called it God's will. Some stories are likely not actual events so much as stories created to teach a lesson. But if one takes into account all historical documents and artifacts, the truth becomes more clear and the manipulations of men more obvious. I do advise you each to do your own research and fact checking, but in the end you will have to trust something, and I advise trusting that which has the most scientific data supporting it rather than theories and political & sociological agendas. After all, how many believe they know what morality is? A quick understanding of knowing if something your doing is wrong, think of whether you would like someone to do it to you. That is a solid fact. Second, if you don't know, ask anyone you might harm by your actions if it would hurt them for it to be done. Politicians giving themselves raises and special healthcare while the country flounders is wrong, yet a teen downloading music to listen to for free is a federal offense? Proving the Golden rule, those with the Gold make the rules. Doesn't make them right, nor moral. Also, things that were common place and frowned on but not prosecuted have over the last 100 years become felonies severe enough to change you to a second class citizen for the rest of your life and spend years and decades in jail, even if they didn't hurt anyone. Morals? The world doesn't understand what that is anymore, they only think they do and want to enforce their idea of morals and justice on everyone else. And partially because of this, they idea of family is disintegrating as well because one part of the family doesn't understand another and there is not enough respect and love to try. Good news? There is always hope, for each person who tries actually does make a difference, like ripples in a pond.

Aha, I found out that here is a GOOD reason to consider the Trinity the TRUE NATURE of God. Aha aha aha. Most other world religions believe God is a Oneness...they may label other lesser beings gods in their pantheon, but that could be akin to the divine counsel as taught in the bible, as in high ranking angels such as powers, dominions, and thrones. These are created beings but very powerful and high ranking. The divine counsel is taught in the bible. To deny it is heresy or to be ignorant of what the bible teaches. In regards to the main God at the top, other world religions teach oneness. Islam does, non-Christian Jews do, Hinduism even does. Hindus may seem to have millions of gods, but I found out those are the same god with millions of modes. So the be Trinitarian is to contrast with all the other world religions. Therefore faith in the Trinity cannot be considered pagan. If you WANT to label it as polytheism, attach whatever label you want to it, the bible teaches it. People scandalized by people calling the Trinity pagan care more about what outsiders THINK of Christianity instead of what the bible teaches. For me the bible teaches causes me to OBSTINATELY hold to what it teaches over other people's opinions, even if BILLIONS of people disagree with me, I CARE NOT.

I will make the case that the ancient giants were the result of fallen angels marrying human women and producing giants from those unions. Genesis 6 says that "the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, took them as wives, and went into them". Then it says the Nephilim were on the earth in those days and also after that. In Hebrew the verse reads that "the sons of God saw the daughters of ADAM.." in biblical language a son of God COULD mean a redeemed human, it also in the Old Testament often and most certainly refers to angels. But the context tells me it is referring to angels marrying daughters of ADAM. Because a redeemed person is both a son or daughter of Adam AND a son or daughter of God. Angels would never be referred to sons of Adam however. I think the verse is contrasting humans and non-humans, why the daughters are called "daughters of Adam" in this verse is telling. This is also why the Israelites were to wipe out certain tribes, ALL of them were giants or other hybrids. The human enemy tribes of Israel were to be militarily defeated but never wiped out to the last person. These giants were often cannibals and blood drinkers, very violent to humans. So they needed to be wiped out and their genome being introduced to the human gene pool needed to be wiped out or at least so diluted that it was of no effect. The Hebrew word is "haram" meaning "devoted to destruction". Some are scandalized by Old Testament verses to wipe out certain tribes, man, woman, and child, but these people do not understand or believe because of false teachings from their churches that these tribes were giants or hybrids.

How in the heck is eating all of this luxury seafood have ANYTHING to do with sacrificing for Lent? WTF????? In the Middle Ages the Medieval Church handed down a regulation to skip meat on Fridays because at that time meat was expensive and fish was cheap, so the Church passed this rule so that the rich nobles would feel more solidarity with the poor. Come our modern age many kinds of seafood and fish is MORE EXPENSIVE than many kinds of meat. So hypocrisy, "I am going to Red Lobster to pig out on lobster as MY RELIGIOUS DUTY, AMEN!!!"

To make things more more hypocritical the 40 days of giving up something during the same season Lent JUST HAPPENS TO FALL ON, was originally weeping and mourning for Tammuz, NIMROD'S son, who was killed earlier in his life as a young man, I think he was killed hunting for a boar. So this is where the demonic tradition of having ham on Easter comes from. Easter is really Ishtar, Ishtar is Semiramis, Nimrod's wife and Tammuz's mother. Another tradition the ancient pagans practiced to weep for Tammuz for the 40 days, (Which GOD CALLED AN ABOMINATION in the Old Testament), was to give up some little pleasure one enjoyed.

Before more and more God's people and good people in general needed to start worrying about being rounded up as global elites started consolidating their power. But now, that Trump is in the elites need to start watching their backs, especially anyone involved in child trafficking and human trafficking. In the past sometimes when a cop car drove by or a black SUV I couldn't help wondering if I was being watched FOR MY BELIEFS or for my beliefs in the freedoms enshrined in the Constitution. Most of the time I am sure passing vehicles of authorities was probably random, but as things were developing throughout 2012 - 2016 if someone hinted that I might be being watched, it would be easier for me to believe it. Now the shoe is on the other foot. The elites and globalists are the ones that need to watch their backs, look over their shoulders, and wonder when even SWAT teams are coming for them.

We get nothing in return other than degeneracy and mediocrity. Jews are the lowest subgroup of the human race, yet think they are the chosen ones and view everyone who isn't a Jew as goyim (cattle). They are a plague upon humanity. And anyone who disagrees with me obviously has their head up a kike's ass. That's right, keep sending those checks to Tel Aviv, see where it gets you.

I have heard some never Trumper annoying Christians that don't have a lot of faith say that Trump is really the or an antichrist, and the Christians supporting him are the ones saying "peace and safety" before sudden destruction comes on them in the form of persecution or God's judgments on them. This is taking the biblical passage WAY out of context. The context of THAT verse has to do with the people living UNDER the ANTICHRIST, having already taken the mark, saying peace and safety right before the Lord comes back. Then the Lord returns and destroys them in total destruction on the earth. I currently hold to the view that the rapture will happen AFTER the Tribulation, but BEFORE this total judgment on the earth.

If anything it is the wicked people in high places right now that have been saying "peace and safety", and "we are on the verge of fully controlling the world" (at the expense of the masses of people), but Donald Trump is setting things in motion that will bring many of them down, especially those involved in hidden criminal activities such as child sex trafficking. It is more that the wicked right now are saying "peace and safety" right before THEY are suddenly dealt with as a dress rehearsal or a living prophesy of what will happen at the Second Coming of Christ.

I believe Trump is anointed to be president on the order of King Cyrus.

Some have posted comments claiming that when Trump's people round up Senators and Congressmen involved in elite child trafficking rings that it will be only a cover story and that Trump is really trying to be a dictator. I STRONGLY DISAGREE with that. Just YouTube search for videos on pedogate and pizzagate. There is pictorial evidence indicating that the people named are involved in this stuff, and at least have a sexual interest in children. From what I understand the pictures are legal because they are artwork rather than photos of actual children, but tie it in with leaked emails, other evidence, and people giving testimony, other leaked information, and it is hard for me to believe that is merely a group of people in D.C. with tastes in bizarre art with children. If half the Congress and Senate got rounded it I would assume that they were honest arrests and NOT some dictatorial purge.

There are some truthers on YouTube that have been suspicious of government officials for years, and by that I mean intentions, not just mistakes in policies or imperfections in policies. Now all of a sudden ALL of them support Trump. These people can do deep research making it hard for public officials to hide evil that they do. So if Trump WAS evil ALL of them would be speaking against him, including Alex Jones. If the election had gone another way I would be covering all of my tracks on the internet I might have a hidden place to escape to, I would obtain a few guns with enough ammo. The main reason would be preparedness over potential expectation of suspending freedom of speech and religion. These measures would be to defend myself in case people came after me in case of suspending free speech and religion. If it never happened then for instance, my guns would sit quietly in gun cases, maybe out for some practice at a range, but I would have had them as a last resort emergency defense.

Why do you think churches are dubious at times, off on understanding some scriptures? So many do not believe in the fallen angel theory of Gen 6, they believe it was the sons of Seth instead (not borne out with the Hebrew). What about being saved by grace vs. adding works to get into heaven? Vs. works saving in the sense of better blessing in this life and rewards in the next? Is it people naturally being locked into religious traditions, never challenging what they believe? Is it evil spirits also influencing people's minds? Is it some leaders in some places pretending to be Christians, teaching false doctrines on purpose? Is it that some biblical passages are ambiguous until you do deeper study? All of the above? What about Christian leaders being responsible to follow the Holy Spirit into deeper study regardless of opposing forces, both outside and within themselves? What about church politics of denominations and opinions of the congregation?

This explains everything. Churches have steeples that look like Obelisks, even if there are differences in some details. The Obelisk represents Baal's erect member. The word church means circle, from circe, an ancient pagan goddess. So we have the Obelisk giving seed into the circle. So do many churches that so badly handle the bible to badly misinterpret, mainly by taking verses out of context and super-imposing their own doctrines and traditions ONTO the bible instead of taking it for what it says. So then we have the Baal's member giving spiritual seed into the circle, instead of the pure spiritual seed of God's word getting into people. So it is more proper for gatherings of God's people to call themselves any of these labels: assembly, congregation, fellowship, gathering or even meeting. The Greek word in the New Testament now translated church in many bibles is ekklesia, which means assembly or gathering of God's people. Some ancient pagan sites have an Obelisk near a dome to represent the erect member impregnating the womb, the Obelisk impregnates the dome. This symbolizes is directly related to Nimrod getting Semiramis pregnant and her bearing Tammuz. Nimrod turned himself into a hybrid giant being and is now in the bottomless pit as Apollo or Apollyon, and Semiramis became the Queen of Heaven, what the Old Testament calls an abomination worshiped by many ancient pagans and ancient Israel when it rebelled against God. Some theorize that the Antichrist will either be a resurrected Nimrod himself, or some person possessed by the spirit of Nimrod when it is released from the bottomless pit during the Great Tribulation. According to biblical prophesy it is clear to me that Nimrod is involved in the Antichrist one way or the other. Every bible translation that uses the word church and churches instead of assembly or congregation in whenever the Greek says Ecclesia should be redone. It is the godly thing to do. I will pray for publishers and translators to have their eyes open to this previous ignorance and correct the mistakes. No wonder so many churches are messed up. God is calling them to repent. So do they want God's pure spiritual seed or do they want some big member from a demon to poke them.....well you get the picture.......if you accuse me of blasphemy then you had better realize that what the churches have turned into is FAR from what God intended them to be.

Steeples look a lot like Obelisks. The Obelisk represents Nimrod's or Baal's erect member sticking straight up into the sky. I wonder how pastors would react if we asked them how they feel about the giant erect penises sticking up in the air on top of their churches. God is not against sex, some of my recent posts point out how churches are too strict about sexuality when compared to a better contextual interpretation of the bible and taking the original Greek and Hebrew into consideration. Having said that, since the Obelisk represents specifically Baal's or Nimrod's penis, NO CHURCH as ANY BUSINESS putting anything that resembles an Obelisk on top of its building. Part of repentance churches are going to need to avert coming judgments from God will be to take down the giant penises with RAGING ERECTIONS on top of their buildings, along with being very quick to divest themselves of 501c3 or be happy when it is fully repealed and use the fact that some previously hindered speech is now unshackled. I feel that often coming church buildings will be homes of Christians where small groups gather instead of church buildings. I am sure some larger church bodies will repent, but I really wonder how many will, or many will but they will need a harder hand of discipline from God to wake them up. Their former church homes will be broken up, and they will re-organize under conditions more in keeping with God's perfect will for our time.

One can be sexual and spiritual at the same time. A Christian enjoying sexuality is not a contradiction. If one uses it for EVIL, then it is wrong, but THEN and ONLY THEN. Matthew 5:27-28 does not speak against lusting after ANY woman, the Greek and context indicates that it is talking about being a sin to lust after another MAN'S wife ONLY. In fact one Medieval English translation of the bible that predates the King James actually says "wife" in that passage instead of "woman". The Greek word for woman "gune" means woman or wife..it is the same word. WHICH it means depends on the context in a sentence or paragraph. Since Jesus in this passage was talking about ADULTERY, it then therefore means wife instead of woman in general. If you interpret the bible contextually considering the larger picture of the bible, you have to define adultery from the Old Testament, and apply that meaning to Matthew 5:27. In the Old Testament adultery meant taking anther man's wife. In fact the Hebrew word for adultery LITERALLY means to "enter another man's wife". So modern Christianity, oops churchianity...has sold us a bill of goods. Instead of clean, fresh, flowing living water from the throne of God, often it has been tepid ponds under the hot sun with scum on the top.

A mass murderer who accepts Christ on his deathbed goes to heaven. Where is the justice in that?

That is narcissism on his part.

In other words, God sins.

The Catholics invented the trinity when they were Paganizing the teachings of Jesus. They were sneaking polytheism into the back door under the guise of the trinity. With the concept of the trinity, three Gods magically become one. Many details found in later writings, such as Matthew and Luke do not appear in the earliest manuscripts of Mark, including the phrase "Son of God" at Mark 1:1. The letters of Paul the Apostle, for example, do not mention a virgin birth of Christ. Paul describes Jesus as "born of a woman, born under the law" and "as to his human nature was a descendant of David" in the Epistle to the Galatians and the Epistle to the Romans.

Trinitarian heretics repent!!
