"A California bill that allows gay parents to identify as “parent” instead of “mother” or “father” on
birth certificates was passed by the state assembly. The bill also allows multiple people to be listed as parents on birth certificates, with no limit given. The bill seeks to adhere to the shifting definition of family in society.
“The definition of a family needs to be more flexible, and same-sex parents should not be discriminated against when filling out a birth certificate,” said Democrat Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez."ChristianHeadlines.com

Creation Moment 3/31/2014 - Ugly worldview of Evolution

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick;
Jeremiah 17:9 ESV
"In 1947, evolutionist Sir Arthur Keith wrote:
The German Führer, as I have consistently maintained, is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice of Germany conform to the theory of evolution.
However, the Western nations have not learned the lessons of the horrific wars and genocides this century. Evolution is today entrenched in our universities even more than it was in Nazi Germany.
Princeton University appointed the animal-rights activist Prof. Peter Singer to a Bioethics chair. Singer, an ardent evolutionist, is notorious for his support of abortion, euthanasia, and killing handicapped infants and old people (except his own mother, who suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease), and for supporting the right to have sex with animals.

It all depends on who you believe sets the rules. If it is God, and they are His rules then there are absolutes—rules we need to live by.
But if it is man (mankind) who sets the rules, that is secular humanism or ‘man decides truth’ for himself. And if man sets the rules—they will be constantly changing." CMI

"....investigators of the Finnish tragedy knew within hours what had been on the mind of the suicide-murderer Pekka-Eric Auvinen in the lead-up to his shooting spree, courtesy of his home-made video clips he’d posted on the video-sharing website YouTube.
Overwhelmingly, Auvinen’s statements in his YouTube contribution (and other blogs on the internet) reveal his belief (that is, what he believed prior to his death) that there is no Creator God, and therefore there is no ultimate purpose to our existence. Note that at the root of Auvinen’s views is the presupposition that evolution is true:
  • ‘I am a cynical existentialist, antihuman humanist, antisocial social darwinist, realistic idealist and godlike atheist.’
  • ‘Life is just a coincidence … result of long process of evolution and many several factors, causes and effects.’
  • ‘There are no other universal laws than the laws of nature and the laws of physics.’
    Auvinen
  • ‘Evolution is both a theory and a fact, creationism is neither one.’
  • ‘Religious people, your gods are nothing and exists only in your heads. Your slave morals means nothing to me. I’m the god & devil of my own life.’
  • ‘What is the best thing in life? It ends. Well I guess there are some other great things, worth living for, but sometimes you lose them or don’t get them.’
  • ‘Trust no one … and rely on your instincts.’
  • ‘I’m the dictator of my own life.’
  • ‘HUMANITY IS OVERRATED!’
  • ‘Human life is not sacred. Humans are just a species among other animals and world does not exist only for humans. Death is not a tragedy, it happens in nature all the time between all species. Not all human lives are important or worth saving. Sometimes I feel like no one is really worth [sic] of life at all.’
  • ‘Today the process of natural selection is totally misguided. Modern human race has not only betrayed its ancestors, but the future generations too.’
  • ‘It’s time to put NATURAL SELECTION & SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST back on track!’
  • ‘I cannot say that I am of the same race as this miserable, arrogant and selfish human race. No! I have evolved a step higher.’
  • ‘I am prepared to fight and die for my cause. I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of the human race and failures of natural selection.’
  • ‘The faster the human race is wiped out from this planet, the better … no one should be left alive. No mercy for the scum of earth.’
  • ‘I am the law, judge and executioner. There is no higher authority than me.’
All of Auvinen’s statements above derive from the idea that everything just came into existence by itself—that everything just evolved. It turned out that the thinking of the Columbine killers was similarly founded on that idea. That’s the idea more formally known as ‘evolutionary theory’—the doctrine taught in our schools and universities throughout the world." CMI

Karlstadt ... Reformation Apostle of the Sabbath

"Luther insisted on the Bible being the sole authority for all his teachings, but Eck challenged him on one point: sola Scriptura versus the authority of the Roman church and the pope.
Johann Eck, who was a staunch defender of Catholicism, challenged Karlstadt to a debate in Leipzig.

Then Luther entered the fray.

Eck stunned Luther with this challenge: “If, however the Church has had power to change the Sabbath of the commandment into Sunday and to command Sunday keeping, why should it not have this power concerning other [holy] days? If you . . . turn from the Church to the Scriptures alone, then you must keep the Sabbath [Saturday] with the Jews, which has been kept from the beginning of the world.”

Karlstadt must have been greatly impressed by this challenge, because from then on he strongly advocated the observance of the Sabbath on Saturday. His staunch support for the Sabbath caused Luther to write, “If Karlstadt were to write further about the Sabbath, Sunday would have to give way and the Sabbath—that is to say, Saturday—must be kept holy.”"

IN the NEWS - Lessons from Santa Barbara Shooter

Some are clamoring for gun control in wake of the infamous Santa Barbara shooting.

But what are the real lessons to be learned?
For instance, as far as gun control goes---he killed his first three victims with knives. Anyone calling for knife control? He used his car to try and run people over. Anyone calling for car control? ..Nope...
Just politicians trying to advance a gun control agenda through a tragedy as usual--politicians..... maybe we need politician control?





Here are 3 observations of the situation:
    * Who told him that he was supposed to be laid by age 22 outside the bounds of marriage? Seriously....who put that idea in his head? He seemed to have this notion that something must be wrong with him if he hasn't been to "bed" with a girl, even though he isn't married.
I'll tell you who put that idea in his head....HOLLYWOOD, music industry & social media--- the "world" did.
    * Who spoiled him? Watching his video he posted he clearly is spoiled and has a sense of entitlement. So who did that to him? I'll tell you who--his parents. And apparently their divorce didn't help matters either in his young life. Nor sticking him off on a shrink since age 8.
    * Who put it into his head that he could just slaughter people as if their life has no meaning at all? I'll tell you where that coldness comes from.....the same people (education system) that spent K-12 & his college years filling his head with the notion that we are just common beasts of the field, here by random chance from a chemical primordial soup.


Solutions:
More God and less "world".....but that isn't gonna happen. The world isn't going to regulate itself or let God have a say. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. Romans 8:7

‘I just wanted to use it in my art. I didn’t know at that time that I would boil it and eat it,’ he told The Local.
‘I had to boil off the meat to get to the bone, and when I started scraping off the meat, I took off a little piece and I thought, why not do it.’
The artist seemed to have no regrets and added: ‘It’s not every day I will have a piece of human flesh which is mine and which it is possible to eat, so I had a little taste, and then I thought, “that’s really nice”.’
Wengshoel also reportedly filmed his operation." Metro

Creation Moment 5/30/2014 - Media going "ape" over evolution

"We had to lose muscle to grow bigger brains, some evolutionists said, and the media went ape.
It is a very simple explanation, and it could be completely wrong,” a scientist said. “In evolution, however, simple
explanations often work well.”  Maybe “simplistic” should be substituted for “simple.”  Old newspaper codger H. L. Mencken once said, “For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.”  Is that what is happening in a new PLoS paper?  (“Exceptional Evolutionary Divergence of Human Muscle and Brain Metabolomes Parallels Human Cognitive and Physical Uniqueness”).  Humans use more of their metabolism to support their brains than mice or monkeys do.  Does that mean we evolved from them?  Reporters loved the idea.  They gulped it down, and regurgitated it uncritically with dashing headlines:
  • Humans Evolved Weak Muscles to Feed Brain’s Growth, Study Suggests; Weak muscles evolved even faster than smart brains in people. (National Geographic)
  • Did Big Brains Sap Our Strength? (Michael Balter in Science Magazine)
  • Humans Sacrificed Brawn for Brains, Study Suggests (Charles Q. Choi in Live Science)
  • Intertwined evolution of human brain and brawn (Science Daily)
  • Jocks vs. Geeks: The Downside of Genius?  (Roland G. Roberts in PLoS Biology)
In an effort to make their study look scientific, the team in China compared mice, macaques, chimpanzees and human athletes several ways.  They compared energy use profiles from 5 kinds of tissues.  They gave the subjects strength tests.  And they tested some of the macaques after giving half of them a fatty, sugary diet, to ensure that diet alone did not affect the readings.  In short, the experiments showed that non-human mammals use more of their metabolism for muscle, so pound for pounds, were stronger than the humans.
None of this should be surprising; it’s well known that apes are strong, and that humans are smart.  It’s also well known that the human brain is a costly organ in terms of energy requirements.  Why, then, is this making such a splash in the media?  It’s because it can be used to support an evolutionary story."

Will Seventh Day Adventist Dr. Ben Carson really run for President in 2016?


"Fox News calls him a "conservative sage." But is Dr. Ben Carson—a retired neurosurgeon who gained Republican fans after speaking freely at last year's National Prayer Breakfast—really the next great hope for 2016?
Judging by his early fundraising numbers, some people certainly think he is. As Reuters reports, one group is pushing hard for a Carson 2016 bid. The National Draft
Ben Carson for President Committee has raised $2.4 million over the last three months—more than similar groups supporting potential candidates like Hillary Clinton, Sen. Rand Paul, and Sen. Marco Rubio.
Carson first gained national prominence at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast, where he compared the U.S. deficit to the "moral decay and fiscal irresponsibility" found in ancient Rome before its collapse, and said political correctness "puts a muzzle on people." NationalJournal

Creation Moment 5/29/2014 - Comparative Genomics of Teeth

"Because tooth enamel incorporates elemental isotopes and minerals from your diet as well as scratches and residue from hard foods you grind with your teeth, it may reveal where you’ve lived and what you’ve eaten over time. Permanent teeth, designed to last a lifetime, contain below their surface a microscopic record of
their growth, analogous to tree rings. “Teeth also preserve their growth bands,” explains Duke evolutionary anthropologist Christine Wall. “So in terms of understanding fossils, teeth can tell you how old a juvenile was when it died, or how long it takes for teeth to develop—so you can compare between living and extinct species.” But can teeth tell more?

Enamel thickness, though determined long before birth when enamel-producing cells build a precisely oriented protein framework for its mineral structure, does vary with a species’ typical diet. Human tooth enamel is, generally speaking, thicker than apes’. Many evolutionary paleontologists believe dietary changes contributed to the evolution of bigger brains and thus to human evolution.

The authors of the recent study think that the genetic distinctives that help make human tooth enamel thick are the footprints of selective changes that led to the evolution of modern humans.
Enamel is the hardest, most mineral-rich substance in the human body. Covering a tooth’s crown long before it erupts from the gum, human enamel is usually thickest on the top.

“We decided to look just at genes that have a known role in tooth development,” explains Duke University biology professor Greg Wray. Four proteins involved in tooth formation are enamelysin, amelogenin, ameloblastin, and enamelin. Mutations in the genes controlling production of these proteins are associated with abnormal enamel formation. The team compared genes in humans and five primate animals that they believe all share a common ape-like ancestor. They believe differences between them trace the evolution of each species, and they also believe that the greatest differences indicate the genes most favored by natural selection in the course of evolution over millions of years. “That's when we know a gene is under positive selection,” says lead author Julie Horvath.

MMP20 and ENAM, the genes for two of the proteins, enamelysin and enameliin, respectively, had significant interspecies differences in the regulatory regions that control their transcription. The protein-coding parts of the genes did not differ significantly between species, and the genes for the other two proteins did not differ. Therefore the team concludes that in the course of human evolution changes in the regulation of transcription of these two genes contributed to us becoming what we are, selectively favoring us to eat the kinds of foods we do and ultimately to evolve our bigger brains. They write, “We expect mutations affecting gene expression to comprise an important part of the genetic basis for dietary adaptations during human evolution.”

What the researchers in this study observed are the two areas of the enamel-producing blueprint that differ between humans and primate animals. Since enamel tops teeth of both, it is no surprise that these human differences occur in the regulatory parts of these genes, the parts that control transcription, rather than the genes that code for the enamel-building proteins themselves.

God our Common Designer used many common designs and variations as He created humans and animals,.....This study has taught us more about God’s design for teeth, not about the ascent of and divergence of teeth up the evolutionary tree of life." AIG

Why do YOU lie on your face?

But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing:
for Achan.... of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing:
and the anger of the LORD was kindled against the children of Israel.
And the LORD said unto Joshua,
Get thee up;
wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?

Israel hath sinned, 
and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them:
for they have even taken of the accursed thing,
and have also stolen, and dissembled also,
and they have put it even among their own stuff.
Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies,
but turned their backs before their enemies,
because they were accursed:
neither will I be with you any more,
except ye destroy the accursed from among you.

Creation Moment 5/28/2014 - Those Nutty Professors of Evolution

And just where can an evolutionary worldview among academics with too much time on their hands lead to?......

"If the multiverse exists, there should be more disembodied intelligences than human brains, says  Sean Carroll of Caltech.  New Scientist says that in a multiverse, “Boltzmann brains” are just as likely to pop into existence from quantum fluctuations as other entities.  Since most brains look human, maybe the multiverse is wrong.  The multiverse might be rescued, though, by Everett’s old “many-worlds hypothesis” that postulates new universes splitting off endlessly to fulfill every possible outcome of quantum events.  “Maybe Hitler won the second world war in a different universe,” Carroll speculates.  What do other cosmologists think of this reasoning? Scott Aaronson of MIT: “It sounds like something a bunch of college sophomores would discuss while high. It doesn’t sound like a real scientific problem.

Health Note - Alcohol & the Brain

"Alcohol not broken down by the liver goes to the rest of the body, including the brain. Alcohol can affect parts of the brain that control movement, speech, judgment, and memory. These effects lead to the familiar signs of drunkenness: difficulty walking, slurred speech, memory lapses, and impulsive behavior. Long-term heavy drinking can shrink the frontal lobes of the brain, which impairs thinking skills." NIH

IN the NEWS - Methodist split on the horizen?

"Will the United Methodist Church soon have to drop the “United” part of its name?
A group of 80 pastors is suggesting that the nation’s second-largest Protestant denomination is facing an imminent split because of an inability to resolve long-standing theological disputes about sexuality and church doctrine.
“We can no longer talk about schism as something that might happen in the future. Schism has already taken
place in our connection,” said the Rev. Maxie Dunnam, a retired president of evangelical Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky,...
As 19 states and the District of Columbia now allow same-sex civil marriage, the debate has consumed America’s mainline denominations, with the outcome ranging from bitter divisions to agree-to-disagree compromises.
The issue is especially heightened within Methodism, where holiness — the beliefs and practices toward Christian purity — is foundational in its theology. And as Methodist membership plateaus at home and grows in parts of Africa, overseas delegates have helped hold the line against growing pressure to liberalize church policy on gay clergy and same-sex marriage.
The tipping point for many conservatives came, however, after Bishop Martin D. McLee of New York announced in March he would drop a case against a retired seminary dean who officiated at his gay son’s 2012 wedding and called for an end to church trials for clergy who violate the denomination’s law on ministering to gays.
“Talk of a ‘middle-way’ or of ‘agreeing to disagree’ is comforting and sounds Christ-like,” the statement states. “However, such language only denies the reality we need to admit. Neither side will find ‘agreeing to disagree’ acceptable.” RNS

Creation Moment 5/27/2014 - Neandertal "Academic Bombshell"

"The radiocarbon ‘dating’ of charcoal remains from ancient fires inside Spain’s famous Nerja caves as being around 43,000 years old has sparked debate among paleo-anthropologists. That’s because the charcoal remains were found beside six cave paintings, and presumably of the same age. However, 43,000 years by evolutionary reckoning is ‘too old’ for such paintings. Neandertals are presumed to have lived back then, without any ‘modern humans’ around. This is the first time that cave art has been linked to Neandertals.
José Luis Sanchidrián of the University of Cordóba, Spain, says that the paintings depict the seals that the people hunted and have “no parallel in Palaeolithic art”. He describes such images
painted by Neandertals as an “academic bombshell”, because all other cave paintings are thought to have been produced by what they call ‘modern’ humans....more researchers are coming to the view that Neandertals had the same capabilities for symbolism, imagination and creativity as modern humans.
However, other researchers, such as Paul Pettitt at the University of Sheffield, UK, warn that the Nerja paintings themselves need to be ‘dated’, to see if the ‘age’ of the pigment matches the age assigned to the ancient fireplace alongside. Pettitt cautions that the dating of cave art is fraught with potential problems. “Even some sites we think we understand very well such as the Grotte Chauvet in France are very problematic in terms of how old they are,” he says.
The only way that something can be definitively dated is by reference to a reliable eyewitness account. The Bible is exactly that, from which we see that the paintings at both Nerja and Chauvet must be younger than about 4,500 years, i.e. they were painted sometime since the global Flood occurred. And it’s no surprise that cave artwork can be ‘sophisticated’, because man has always been imaginative and creative—created in the very image of our Creator God Himself." CMI

Joab scolds David for disrespecting his military men


And Joab came into the house to the king, and said,
Thou hast shamed this day the faces of all thy servants,
which this day have saved thy life,
and the lives of thy sons and of thy daughters,
and the lives of thy wives,



In that thou lovest thine enemies,
and hatest thy friends.
For thou hast declared this day,
that thou regardest neither princes nor servants:
for this day I perceive, that if Absalom had lived,
and all we had died this day,
then it had pleased thee well.

Now therefore arise, go forth, and speak comfortably unto thy servants:
for I swear by the LORD, if thou go not forth, there will not tarry one with thee this night:
and that will be worse unto thee than all the evil that befell thee from thy youth until now.
 
Then the king arose, and sat in the gate.
And they told unto all the people, saying,
Behold, the king doth sit in the gate. And all the people came before the king:

There are 2 types of groups that believe in the mixing & unity of Europe (despite the teaching of Daniel chapter 2 to the contrary). One group would be the elements of dispensational pre-millennials ("secret rapture" crowd) & some historic pre-millennials (modernist ones).
Some of them seem to believe that the European Union will be a sign of the end & others that Europe will revolve around the return of the Holy Roman Empire with the Pope at it's head. Both are wrong.

Recent headlines for a weakening European Union:
What it's all about.....
"Marine Le Pen, leader of France's far-right National Front, doesn't typically draw votes from people like Marius Pigoni.
For decades, the 80-year-old sawmill owner voted for moderate politicians who espoused the European ideal of building an economic bloc free from the nationalist forces that drove the continent into two world wars.
But as people in the European Union's 28 member countries vote on a new European Parliament, Mr. Pigoni's focus is a worry that his sawmill business will be ruined by low-cost imports, including from Eastern Europe.
Ms. Le Pen is leading a campaign to abolish the EU. She is getting Mr. Pigoni's vote.
"As someone who saw the war, I can tell you the EU was a great idea," he said. "But now it's become a farce. We're broke and we're offering billions to Ukraine."
Like Mr. Pigoni, many Europeans have fallen out of love with mainstream political parties and their technocratic creation, the EU.
The EU, they say, has become a bureaucratic machine that excels at dispensing edicts on how cheese is labeled while ignoring everyday problems such as unemployment and illegal immigration. By some polling estimates, myriad anti-EU groups could nearly double their tally in May 22-25 voting from the last European Parliament election five years ago by taking as much as a quarter of the seats.
Casting the EU as public enemy No. 1, Ms. Le Pen .....Having expanded her National Front's following in France, she is setting out to unite Europe's disparate nationalist parties into an anti-EU caucus at the European Parliament—one that could stall the decades long march toward a United States of Europe." WSJ
From Britain....
"Nigel Farage claims to have secured the "most extraordinary result in British politics for 100 years" as UKIP topped the European polls.
With only Scotland left to declare, UKIP has 27.5% of the vote and 23 MEPs.
Labour, on 25%, is narrowly beating the Tories to second place thanks to a strong showing in London but both parties have 18 MEPs so far.
The Lib Dems, on 7%, are coming fifth behind the Green Party, on 8%, and have lost all but one of their seats.
The full Scottish result will be known at noon on Monday, as the Western Isles does not count votes on a Sunday.
The BBC is predicting that the result in Scotland will be SNP on two seats, Labour on two seats and the Conservatives and UKIP with one seat each - meaning Mr Farage's anti-EU party is expected to win at least one seat in every region of Great Britain." BBC
From Germany....
"Chancellor Angela Merkel’s bloc won the most votes in Germany’s election for the European Parliament, even as a campaign to ditch the euro gained support, ARD television projections showed.
Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc won 35.5 percent, the least since voters began choosing European Union lawmakers in 1979, according to ARD projections based on initial returns late yesterday. The Alternative for Germany party, or AfD, which wants to dismantle the currency union, took an estimated 7 percent for its first seats in any election.
The Social Democrats, Merkel’s coalition partner, won 27.2 percent after an all-time low of 20.8 percent in 2009. The party campaigned for the EU socialist candidate, European Parliament President Martin Schulz, who is vying to head the European Commission.
While the right is causing tremors in France and the U.K., Germany’s results mirror the island of political and economic self-satisfaction that it is,” Carsten Brzeski, an economist at ING Group NV in Brussels, said by phone. It’s an endorsement of the status quo.”" Bloomberg
From France....

"Far-right National Front stuns French elite with EU 'earthquake.... Marine Le Pen's far-right National Front stunned France's political elite on Sunday by taking first place in European Parliament elections, with
President Francois Hollande's Socialists beaten into a poor third, provisional results showed.
It was the first time the anti-immigrant, anti-EU party had won a nationwide election in its four-decade history. If the results are confirmed, it could secure as many as 25 seats in the new European Parliament, more than eight times the three it won in 2009.

"The people have spoken loud and clear," a triumphant Le Pen told cheering supporters at party headquarters in a northwestern suburb of Paris." ChicagoTribune

From the Netherlands....
"There was a suprising outcome after a day of voting for the
Geert Wilders
European Parliament in The Netherlands
:
while the Dutch eurosceptic Geert Wilders dominated media and the public debate throughout the campaign, it now looks like his PVV party has lost two seats in the next EU Parliament.

While the far-right party made losses, the left-liberal D66 and the centre-right CDA claimed victory. These two parties are neck-and-neck for the first spot, coming out at 15.6% and 15.2% of votes respectively." EA

From Italy....
"Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi was on course for a triumph in Sunday's European election with early projections giving his center-left Democratic Party (PD) a strong lead over the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement of ex-comic Beppe Grillo.
Grillo

A projection by IPR Marketing for RAI state television put the PD on 41.4 percent ahead of the 5-Star Movement on 22.4 percent with former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia party on 15.7 percent.
For Grillo, who won a stunning 25.5 percent of the vote in last year's parliamentary election and who said he expected to win the election, the result would be below expectations. But it would nonetheless consolidate his rowdy and unconventional movement as the second force in Italian politics." Reuters

IN the NEWS - Flip Flopping False Prophet of the GREEN Religion


And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Matthew 24:11
"The author of a much-quoted 1975 Newsweek article predicting catastrophic global cooling now says it was a big mistake and the earth was warming all along.
Peter Gwynne, began his piece by declaring portentously:
"There are ominous signs that the earth's weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production - with serious political implications for just about every nation on earth."
And this wasn't just a minority opinion, he went on to stress:
"Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local weather conditions. But they are almost unanimous in their view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century. If the climatic change is as profound as some of the pessimists fear, the resulting famines could be catastrophic."
But now Gwynne has decided that this certainty was misplaced:
"While the hypotheses described in that original story seemed right at the time, climate scientists now know that they were seriously incomplete. Our climate is warming -- not cooling, as the original story suggested,"
Gwynne is apparently sick and tired of having the article rubbed in his face...." Breitbart
Newsweek wasn't the only magazine pushing global cooling in the 70's
these are the same people today pushing global warming

Creation Moment 5/26/2014 - Evolutionary Impact on Youth

I have made the earth, and created man upon it:
Isaiah 45:12
"No morals,
 no purpose,
no consequences
 – the evolutionary view is just asking for trouble
No future, no morals:  According to a press release from the University of Texas at Dallas, youth who fail to envision a future commit more crimes.
No God, no bother:  New Scientist argues that the rise in “God-not-botherers,” people who don’t “do God,” is a good thing.

Put the proverbial angel and devil on John’s shoulders. 
While the angel is trying to stir the boy’s innate conscience,
 the devil is saying, “You’re just an animal. 
There is no God.  There are no consequences. 
Morality is an illusion.  Self-control is an illusion. 
Truth is an illusion.  Might makes right. 
Natural selection is the only good;
survival of the fittest makes you the man. 
Assert yourself. 
You need to smash others to succeed in this world. 
 Everything is meaningless. 
Get high.  Get mad. 
Get guns and bombs–might as well go out with a bang and make a statement." CEH

Is that "Fire" in Revelation the Azusa "Fire"? Hmmm....

Another angle to look at the "FIRE" that comes down in the sight of men.....could it be what some Christians call "strange fire"? That charismatic "rain"/fire (tongues & faith healing crowd)?
This 2nd beast (U.S.) that enforces the mark-of-the-beast onto the world is where this fake latter rain began. It was the Azusa street movement in L.A. California in the first decade of the 1900's. The Azusa Street Revival is from whence the charismatic fire swept the earth the last century.
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him,......
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast,
Revelation 13:12-14

Hmmmmm....it all began with 
a confusion of tongues at Babel & will
it end likewise---in spiritual Babylon 
in the "fire" of the confusion
of tongues? (charismatic in this case)...interesting...
P.S. - the "false prophet" of Revelation helping to prop up the "beast" of Revelation by its charismatic capabilities? The charismatic movement (the "fire" of the babel of gibberish tongues & faith healing--attributed to the Holy Spirit as fire from heaven) recently praised the "beast". Remember that tape of charismatic TV evangelist, joined by other leaders, praying for the Pope?

"Idiotized"

The Tower of BABEL is not in brick & mortar today-but in a box in your living room where each night millions become "IDIOTIZED" in the ways of this world.....



Stay away from every kind of evil.

Creation Moment 5/25/2014 - Testimony of that smell

 ...when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah,
while the ark was a preparing,
1 Peter 3:20
"What impressed and perhaps astonished me was the experience of opening up a piece of limestone with a hammer and chisel. The limestone was densely packed with sea shells and, as it split apart and the dust arose, there was a distinct smell of shell fish and seaside aromas!
Interestingly this led on to quite a bit of discussion with the children about the age of the rocks.
If one could still smell these dead sea creatures then they couldn’t possibly be millions of years old—could they? Instead of evolution, Noah’s Flood was the real answer to fossilization and the explanation of how sea shells and multitudes of other creatures were destroyed and rapidly buried.
After this many questions and ideas were raised by the children regarding the Bible and the Lord Jesus, including His second coming!" CMI ... this fascinating account from a UK correspondent, prompted by David Catchpoole’s recent article Double decade dinosaur disquiet in Creation magazine:

The 3 Types of Laws SIMPLIFIED


1) Law of God (10 Commandments) - written by finger of God in stone / for all mankind
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law:
for sin is the transgression of the law.
1 John 3:4
2) Ceremonial Laws (the 7 feasts that pointed to the Messiah's mission & Sanctuary services) / The "shadow" that was cast upon the earth of the heavenly, as Paul puts it. Literally carried out by the Hebrews yearly & now learned from by the Christians through study of them. / Practicing these ceremonies on earth ended with the cross.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:
 I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
Matthew 5:17
3) Statutes of Moses (Judicial Law for the Hebrew nation under a direct theocracy of God) / Christians should learn what is right & wrong from them in the eyes of God, although we don't carry out any of the punishments today for violations. (Common sense would dictate such things as the so-called "dietary" laws under this group should be followed simply because the CREATOR understands what is & isn't healthy better than us.)
These are the statutes and judgments and laws,
which the LORD made between him and the children of Israel
in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
Leviticus 26:46
