(Largely) Religious Hypocrisy Against Immigration

Article

When Christians start supporting white supremacists support a political party which supports separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexican border, one knows that something is deeply wrong.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2018/06/18/why-many-white-evangelical-christians-are-not-protesting-family-separations-on-the-u-s-border/?utm_term=.57c823e9764d

Remember what the Bible states about the oppression of immigrants?

New International Version
“Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.”http://biblehub.com/exodus/23-9.htm

Okay, tell me what part of that verse you couldn’t understand.  Do not oppress.

It’s not all bad, thankfully, as The Washington Post quoted a Lutheran pastor, Constance Day, who said in her past Sunday sermon: “I don’t really want to get political in church, but when politicians use our holy book to justify evil acts … it’s appropriate for us to speak up and say that they are wrong. … It’s not hard to find the many admonitions in the Bible about treating foreigners fairly, and loving neighbors as oneself. It’s not hard to find the heart of the Bible, and the heart of God.” (source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2018/06/18/why-many-white-evangelical-christians-are-not-protesting-family-separations-on-the-u-s-border/?utm_term=.57c823e9764d).

As you have read from this columnist before, I truly don’t care if they come nor how many come, because whites stole this country and it’s simple payback-at least from this perspective; the old ‘do unto others’ applies in this case.

You know what they say about paybacks, so bend over.

The Dad I Never Had

Article

$0.50

 

This is a two-part article which may be difficult to follow,

but I hope will make sense in the end.

While I know that Jesus rose from the dead, I have to say that I don’t respect religion very much, and for one reason:hypocrisy.

You see, I was never accepted, even as a child.  I talked about that to the pastor’s wife a couple of days ago, and the suggestion was that I somehow had something to do with it-as a child.

Let me tell you about the last grain of sand which pushed me too far and let me tell inform you how I crawled out of the grave.

 

It was early 1983 and I had been severely bullied by Christians for years.

I was on the brink of suicide when I found this man, the former frontman of Elf; the former frontman of Rainbow; the former voice of the notorious Black Sabbath.

My soul was crawling and crushed by what the Children of the Cross had done unto me, as they spat at me, sabotaged my schoolwork so that the teacher never saw it (we had to pass it forward in those days).  I usually had to do the same assignment twice-and that was before I had even gotten to the homework assignment of that particular day.

I wonder if that had happened to Ronnie, too.

I had never made a friend in the Church, not even as a small child.  I was always the outcast in the House of the Lord, which was why I was so drawn to Rainbow, to Sabbath…..to Ronnie.

By the time I had left North Valley Lutheran Church, it was too late.  The transformation had begun, as the pastor had blamed me for my own afflictions and said he had no time to help me.  It’s funny, but I was told that I was to blame for my own experiences by a pastor’s wife as we conversed on the phone last weekend; that I was making excuses for what happened to me in those years.

Holy Diver was released in 1983, and I was already past the point of decision before I had even heard the album.   It was just a matter of how I was going to try and become successful at the ultimate symbol of failure in life, because that’s how the people at Church made me feel.  It’s possible that he had felt the same way, because he spoke about ‘always being smacked in the head by the nuns with a ruler’.

That will deter your faith-no matter what religion you’re born into.

Yes, I felt like the rainbow in the dark, for sure, and this is why I struggle with my beliefs nearly forty years later.  It’s not that I don’t believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died and rose from the dead.  It’s that God the Father ever gave a damn about me in the first place-and I am not the only one.  Before he changed his name, Ronald Padavona experienced something in the Catholic Church which made him go somewhere else in his later life.  However, I watched this video of Ronnie and Wendy Dio in Volgograd, Russia, shot in 2005, I wonder if he struggled in the last five years-I mean, I really have no idea, as it seems to me someone who has no interest in God would wish to enter His House.

I guess I’d have to ask someone who knew Ronnie on May

16, 2010.

I was given the news by a friend of mine from Sylmar High School, a fellow metal guitarist by the name of Kari Simon, whom I had met in guitar class.  Time stopped at that moment, because Dio’s  office was Ventura Boulevard and I lived on Sherman Way-less than five miles away-and I had always wanted to thank him for getting me out of Hell.

It’s possible that I’m doing that now, because he told me that I just needed a little hand, because he knew I could feel the hot breath on my shoulder.

 

Because of Ronnie James Dio, I will never say this at the end of my life.

“Dreams are what we are.”-RJD

Looking at this man’s face still shakes me-even eight years after his demise from stomach cancer.

While religion nearly brought me to the brink of suicide, this is the man who told me to hold on; that a better day would come, and that I wouldn’t be the last in line anymore, but rather…the first in line.

Lastly, the struggle I face is in becoming rich so that I can find love, but what does Dio tell me-even now?

 

“Love isn’t money.  It’s not something you buy.”

Here is where I move on into the second part of this article, and you can read what Dio wrote above.  I move into a different part of this article, because it is what I am struggling with right now in my personal life.  Who is there to guide me through this?From beyond the grave, it’s Dio-and the lyrics are right above.

That’s funny, but I could have sworn that the Bible states the same thing about love and courtship.

While the pious tell me I have to make good money (as hard as I have tried since I graduated from high school), I have never had much luck-even my sister told me that I am one of the hardest workers whom she knows, as I have worked in a Goodyear, dug ditches, worked with those who have autism and have been brutally attacked (both physically by my charge and mentally by his father)

Genesis 2:18 

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”


Hm.  Nothing about money there.  Let’s look somewhere else.

1 Thessalonians 4:7 

For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.

Nothing about money there, either.  This is not looking good, is it?

 

Ecclesiastes 4:9 

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;

Gee, you mean things like: HE DOESN’T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY?

Proverbs 31:10: “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Hm.  Suppose I am a poor man who only has a small bank account because I have a damaged spine and a screwed up shoulder.  I have a bachelor’s degree, but so what?


1 Corinthians 7:9 New International Version (NIV)

But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

 

Something isn’t right here, and it’s quite understandable why people like Ronnie James Dio felt the way he did about hypocrisy.  Love isn’t money, but there are a lot of people in this country who delay marriage so that they can afford to be husband and wife.  

Meanwhile, what happens?  Everyone ends up sleeping with everyone else.

 


Flee
 from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.

1 Corinthians 7:9 New International Version (NIV)

But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

Romans 14:13-23 English Standard Version (ESV)

Do Not Cause Another to Stumble

13 Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.

This leads us right back to:

 

1 Corinthians 7:9 New International Version (NIV)

But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

Money is a stumbling block which causes sexual immorality, isn’t it?  What did Christ say about issues like that in Mark 9:42?

 

New International Version
“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.

 

The hypocrisy of organized religion was what transformed Ronald Padavona into Ronnie James Dio.  

He understood my experiences with religion unlike any pastor whom I ever knew, and I never met the man personally.  I only knew him through his music and his interviews-and I learned that Ronnie Padavona experienced what I had, which is why he became the great Ronnie James Dio, the last in line and the first in line.

If some of this article escapes your understanding, you can thank the pastor’s wife for that, as we had a very nasty conversation a few days ago, and you read the gist of it.  

I still reel from her words, as she was not there to experience what I did.  She did not deliver me from suicide, but Ronnie James Dio was one of the people who did.  He was probably the strongest influence in my life at that time.  

I couldn’t talk to my old man, because all we ever did was fight.  I still have trouble with God, because of Acts 1:8:

New International Version
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

 

So, since she blamed me for being bullied and since she blamed me for the feelings which I have carried for all of those years, does that mean the Father is also like this, too.

I’d love to ask Ronnie, but I’m not totally sold on the “power” of Ouija boards.  All I can do is thank him for being one of the most important people in my life during a time when I tried to end my life for lack of hope in any future.  After all, Ronnie James Dio was the dad I never had.

The Problem I Have With Christianity

JESUS

 

 

As you read in the previous articles from yesterday and today (good band, by the way), today’s version of Christianity has been hijacked by greed.

Greed has been a problem in Christianity since the Burning Times, which is why Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the front door of his church in Wittenberg, Germany, where he served as the head honcho priest.  However, it’s really gotten bad now.

I can’t believe it!  I checked just for laughs, and I’m not laughing anymore-Trinity Broadcasting Network hasn’t been shut down by the federal government yet-even though frauds, Benny Hinn, have been investigated by the Internal Revenue Service as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation., according to The Dallas Morning News!

https://www.dallasnews.com/life/faith/2017/04/26/irs-investigators-search-televangelist-benny-hinns-offices-grapevine

This article states that Hinn is worth $60 million!


Now, what did Paul write about this subject?

2 Corinthians 11:7 7Was it a sin for me to lower myself in order to elevate you by preaching the gospel of God to you free of charge?

1 Corinthians 9:16 16For when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, since I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!

1 Corinthians 9:18 18What then is my reward? Just this: that in preaching the gospel I may offer it free of charge, and so not make full use of my rights as a preacher of the gospel.

James 1:27 New International Version (NIV)

27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.;

I see that I’m getting a little off base here, so I’m going to boomerang back to where I started the fact that the Trump Doctrine is a total fraud-especially regarding to social issues and matters of religious freedom.

Let’s see.  Trump wants to get rid of Obamacare, Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, and he hates immigrants.  Well, what does the Bible state about the treatment of immigrants?

21“You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 22“You shall not afflict any widow or orphan.…

Exodus 23:9

“You shall not oppress a stranger, since you yourselves know the feelings of a stranger, for you also were strangers in the land of Egypt.
Leviticus 19:13

You shall not oppress your neighbor, nor rob him. The wages of a hired man are not to remain with you all night until morning.
Leviticus 19:33

‘When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.
Leviticus 19:34

‘The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God.”

So, Trump wants to make the Christianity the official religion of the United States of America.

Okay, let’s see what the Founding Fathers (Masons) wrote about it in the Constitution.

Article VI

All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

As for the Treaty of Tripoli, which passed the U.S. Senate uninanimously and signed by the president, Article XI states the following:

See the source image   

It was signed into law.

Oops.

So, it would be nice to know why those who want the United States to be the Western Hemisphere’s version of Iran and Saudi Arabia want to force any kind of religion on American citizens.

Have they truly thought this out?  

Which denomination will be the correct one?  Isn’t a greenback a greenback?

Does it matter whether it’s worth $1 or $20?

What did Paul write about religiosity and money?

God and Money

http://biblehub.com/1_timothy/6-5.htm

1 Timothy 6:5 

Verse (Click for Chapter)

New International Version

and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.

Wow!  I mean someone is in real fucking trouble here-and I don’t think it’s me!

One thing I want to know is why I’m doing this.  I mean, I’m a death metal musician, and I really shouldn’t give a damn about this.   I guess it has to do with what I experienced last Sunday and what she and I experienced over a week ago.

You know who I’m writing about, so don’t ask.

Just pray for her.

What did I just say??????

Ozzy!  I’m on a crazy train!  Help me!

Love is Love, Money Is Money-THERE’S A DIFFERENCE! By the Way-Don’t Judge!

Article

$0.50

Yeah, I’m still thinking about this event that happened to she and I.

I’m not spinning like an acorn anymore (thanks, Ace Frehley), but it’s not leaving my mind-no matter what I do or the way I numb it.

The Acorn Is Spinning, 1988

No, I’m not drinking, but I do engage in other self-destructive behaviors-which I wish I had more willpower from which to refrain.  Chief among them, I know that my Dodge Dart can go well over 100 mph, and that’s not just a bad idea.  That’s seven shades of stupid when you do that at the age of 47.

By the way, I never did that with her in the car-again, seven shades of stupid.

It’s quite certain that she’s thinking about this, too.  This is because she is not the kind of woman who doesn’t keep her word.  She knew that I was worried about this possibility, because I voiced it.

Love is love and it shouldn’t be interfered with-by anyone.  It’s ironic that somehow the one who abused her passed the test and I didn’t.   This has happened throughout the centuries, as parents broke the hearts of their children by making prejudicial decisions or by choosing not understand the suitor’s experiences.

What did Jesus say about this?  Well, I (as almost always) have the answer to this question:

Matthew 7:1-5 1“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

The Christian left has warned that the judging of others is one of the reasons why people detest Christianity.  It also holds the position that preachers who preach against greed, but have plenty besides cause people to doubt the validity of the Bible.

Even though I detest religion, I know Jesus was the Son of God, simply by all of the scientific and historical evidence.   However, that’s not enough for many Christians when you have a relationship with their daughters.  I came to the understanding that my rather lousy relationship with God the Father played into this-never mind that Christianity is what made me suicidal in the first place before I was even thirteen-years-old.  This happened via social ostracization, serious degrees of bullying, and the Church’s willingness to ignore my cries for help against the spiritual violence which happened to me.

What did Paul write about the quality of faith?

Romans 14:1 1Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.

What did Jude write about this?

Jude 22 New International Version (NIV)

22 Be merciful to those who doubt.

Kiss, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Ronnie James Dio, Rainbow, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, and Twisted Sister prevented my suicide, okay?  Enough said.

Here’s proof of that.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYn8WOWJ2hU

The Church continues to experience problems in this area, as Christians judge actions without considering motivation.  Okay, I shouldn’t have played my Black Sabbath album in the sanctuary last week.  However, Sabbath prevented my suicide after the Church nearly caused it thirty-five years ago, and Christianity, not only nearly caused it, but did nothing to prevent it.

Hey, I’m a sinner like everyone else, but at least I try to understand why people are the way the are.  I guess we can thank liberalism and my psychology degree for that one, huh?  Parents need to consider the emotional consequences of their daughters before allowing their prejudices to ruin their lives.

Love is love and you’re not supposed to buy it.  While Christians say that money isn’t everything, that position quickly changes when they see a guy at the door who holds the hand of their daughter.

What did Paul write about wealth in 1 Timothy 6:17?

“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”

What did Paul write in 1 Corinthians 7:9 about sex and marriage?

1 Corinthians 7:9 New International Version (NIV)

“9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.”

Oh, and as for my doing this for the money is concerned, as 1 Timothy 6:5 points out:

New International Version
“…and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.”

Remember that money is the problem in the first place.  I still certain that I wouldn’t be approved of even if I became a millionaire.  Funny, but I could have sworn that both Paul and Ronnie James Dio agreed that money had nothing to with love.

HYPOCRISY IS THE REASON WHY CHRISTIANITY IS DYING!

The breaking of a daughter’s heart comes at a price, so does breaking hearts of grandchildren, as that little girl cried and gave me one of the tightest hugs I have ever felt.

Christianity proves itself to be more phony as the days roll past because of those who sit in the pews.   Hell will be filled with Christians, and I can prove it.

Matthew 8:11-12 11I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

No one is ever good enough for a Christian parent.  Remember that the man of whom they approved beat their daughter severely  and he is still a negative force in their daughter’s life, as well as the lives of the grandchildren-and that’s not too bright, kids.

Any psychologist will tell you that.

 

 

IMG_0338

Isn’t that, right, Mr. Dio?

 

Ronnie-James-Dio

And Rabbi, what saith thou about my faith, since I accept the faith that I know you are God’s Son?

Matthew 17:20

 Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.”

Now, Rabbi, I struggle daily in my faith in You, and I despise Your Church because of its hypocrisy and judgments of others whom the members of the same choose not to understand.  What of that?  You saw what happened to me at church last week when I was physically threatened by one of the ushers, who said that he would: “kick your ass out of here.”   

Romans 14:1 1Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.

While we’re on the subject, what about the use of foul language by a Christian-especially by an usher or an elder?  Remember that he said he would throw my ass out, so I’m not the hypocrite here-especially in the midst of my pain.  Now, I’m guilty, too.  However, You saw me take responsibility for it.

James 3:9-12 9With the tongue we praise our LORD and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

Ephesians 5:4, New International Version
Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather
thanksgiving.

Okay, Lord.  I admit that I’m also guilty of that-mainly because the deprivation which I have experienced has caused me to joke about the calmities of others.  Now, while that’s a sin, what is Your stance on my rather sick sense of humor?

Remember that he said he would throw my ass out, so I’m not the hypocrite here-especially in the midst of my pain.

Hm.  It seems like my relationship with God might be better than people believe-even if I do blast Black Sabbath in the church parking lo-or in the sanctuary, for that matter.  Jesus knows why I do that, and He gets it-even though I don’t understand everything about Him.

By the way, Christ has a message for you.

Matthew 5:7 New International Version (NIV)

Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.

So, what about those who go to church every Sunday and judge people whom they don’t understand?

Matthew 8:11-12 11I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Biblical Proof That Religious Conservatives Will Burn in Hell Like An American Flag

American flag burning

by Jim Rousch

Don’t you just love it when conservatives use the excuse that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) when they engage in discrimination or judge teen mothers (who were most likely raped).

The theocrats in America scream that we need to return to God, yet I had a retired Christian police officer push me to the floor, with me crashing onto the hard flooring in the church, as he involved himself in a situation in which no one was in any danger.

I crashed onto my damaged left shoulder.

There are many passages in the Bible one must read in order to understand why Christianity is in so much trouble these days.

 

Cussing and discouragement

Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Proverbs 18:19 A brother wronged is more unyielding than a strong city; disputes are like the gates of a barred citadel. (NIV)

Jude 1:22 Be merciful to those who doubt;

Proverbs 15:1 New International Version (NIV)
15 A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
1 John 3:17 New International Version (NIV)

17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
Matthew 25:42-46 New International Version (NIV)

42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Leviticus 19:9-10 New International Version (NIV)

9 “‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. 10 Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the Lord your God.

Proverbs 3:27 ESV
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

Conservatives and guns
Psalm 56:11 New International Version (NIV)
11 in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can man do to me?
Matthew 7:1-2 New International Version (NIV)

Judging Others
7 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Church and State
Matthew 22:20-22 King James Version (KJV)

20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21 They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled and left him, and went their way.

2 Corinthians 6:3 ESV
We put no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry,

Conservatives as draconian moral crusaders who force abstinence.

1 Corinthians 7:9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
1 Timothy 6:17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

Income has nothing to do with marriage, so stop telling young people to wait.

Those in your family who struggle.

1 Timothy 5:8-But if any provideth not for his own, and specially his own household, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.

Obamacare
Luke 10:30-37 English Standard Version (ESV)

30 Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And the next day he took out two denarii[a] and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’ 36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” 37 He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”

Conservatives are going to Hell for their hypocrisy.

Heaven and Hell

Someone in a Facebook discussion stated: “I don’t believe in heaven or hell.


But damn. If there is a heaven, dogs should take precedence.”

Well, if there’s no Hell, I’d like to know where Adolf Hitler is for genocide and I’d also like to know where Donald Trump is headed since he likes to make fun of people with disabilities:

Of course, there’s a Hell.  We’re all evil in one sense or another, as the human being is a prick by his very nature.

However, those who make fun or victimize those born with disabilities are the lowest of human excrement, and their Bible warns them what will happen to them, and the best example of this can be found in Matthew 25:42-46….just see above, as his attitude against the poor and his attitude against the disabled continues to worsen with every day he remains in office.

In fact, anyone who denies the disabled justice will burn like an American flag in Eternity-just look at the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man in Luke 16:19-31.

The funny thing is that all of these people who oppose a rape victim’s right to choose think they are going to Heaven because they truly believe that they saved one life (while ruining another).  This is especially funny since Republicans in Illinois tried to pass a bill which would have made it impossible for a single mother to apply for aid if she could not identify the father of her child.

Now, let’s suppose that the father of her child just happened to be her own father.

It’s quite possible that Christ is disgusted by this behavior, which is being done in His Name, but it’s hard to say for sure.

However, with regard to people with disabilities, remember that the Republican Party has cut services for the disabled since Wigboy weaseled his way into the White House, and they are the ones who want to force everyone to pray in public schools again.

Beat Some Sense Into the Ignorant

Did anyone see the Space X Launch Coverage of Space X CRS-14 Mission on YouTube today?

Anyone who did see the launch of the Falcon 9 could clearly see that Earth is a sphere, so why does anyone listen to some religious jackass who tells them that Earth is as flat as the tits of an 85-year-old stripper?

It’s simply time to stop giving these freaks a platform and simply give them the taste of a Louisville Slugger baseball bat after they have been sodomized with it first, because these religious fundamentalists are destroying America.

America once led the world in science.  However, that leadership has been compromised since the religious freaks began to take over in the United States, and this takeover began in the early 1970’s under those like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, as the far-right slowly took power in preparation for their political takeover in the United States-and you saw what happened as a result of that.

America began its freefall in its relative standings in math and science when the Religious Right came into political prominence .  Of course, Reagan’s budget cuts in Education added to the problem.

However, with these religious fundamentalists now telling us that Earth is flat when rockets like the Falcon 9 prove that to be an utter lie, America has one way to go:

DOWN.

The belief in God or in Christ is not the problem, because most scientists in America’s early years believed in God.  Religion becomes a problem when religious freaks dare to interfere with Science and with human rights.

Why Are Christians So Eager To Commit Violence When Christ Told Them Not To?

It’s really funny reading all the hateful responses from people who are supposed to be loving to those who doubt, like myself-especially over the issue of patriotism.

Flag burning is legal under the Supreme Court decision, Texas v. Johnson.  However, conservatives just become more violent whenever you mention free speech-and then they use Christ as a human shield-which is really stupid.

Here is the exchange I had with one such conservative tonight:

    I love you Christian hypocrites; you suck Christ’s dick on Sunday and refuse to be your brother’s keeper the next day.

    None of you are real Americans, and if what I’ve read in Matthew 25:42-46 is true. You’re ALL going to burn like AMERICAN FLAGS in HELL.

    Why? Because being pro-life means you support the idea of what Jesus Christ introduced: FREE HEALTHCARE.

    Most Christians are going to Hell anyway. See the parable of the father who had two sons and the vineyard.

    +Jim Rousch He hasn’t eever been bankrupt and you are the hypocrite to your country and the people that sacrificed their lives to give you the freedom that you have to shoot your ignorant mouth off at and know not a thing of any knowledge of the history of what you are refering to.You are so full of it that you can’t see the truth at all.Who’s your mother? Nancy Pelosi? She has no idea of what’s going on anymore and I am from Maryland and can tell you about her and her family that extorted money from the state through her Father and Brother when they were the Mayor’s of Baltimore in the late 60’s and early 70’s.They extorted money with the Luchessee Crime Family of New Jersey and made $Millions off our state government.Now you know why she went to California to pursue a political career because of what her family did in Maryland.They don’t know anything about her out there,she was 21 years old in 1971 and made off with the riches and never had to worry about money after that.You want to talk about morals and integrity?How about Hillary and taking $6Million from Haiti for the Clinton Foundation to contribute for to get help for themselves and they only got 2% of it back and look what they have now!!!Look at the Uranium 1 deal that Obama and Hillary did in selling the Uraniumm and the Obama Administration along with them made off with $Millions!!!Remember,Hillary was just bankrupt a few years ago and now she has a net worth of $200 Million now!!! How would you like to explain that? How would you like to explain all the killings of everyone that was going to go and report or ever testify against Hillary from Foster up to Seth Rich just last July 2016 that the death toll came to about 30 people.Tell me about integrity and morals of your great Democratic congress that want to help you when all they talk about is getting illegals citizenship and bringing refugees here that are from the Muslim countries that want to do terrorist attacks and kill and takeover our country after all the assistance that we give them and they live off our taxes and collect welfare.You are so stupid and blind to not knowing anything of what is going on in our nation that you can’t get your head out of your ass!!!

    +Halver Rey Jr. Now is that any way for a Christian to address someone? Go read Ephesians 5:1-20 and Proverbs 15:1-and then go get your amygdala checked in the morning.

    You’d better be nice to me, because 2 Peter 3:4 is about to be fulfilled. So, if you will excuse me, I do believe that I have another flag to burn.

    Good night.

    I don’t care about your war crimes.

    Jesus told you not to brag about your good deeds, so all that matters now is that you are a murderer-1 John 3:15.

    I’ll burn the American flag in front of your face and you cannot legally do anything about it. If you so much as even hate me, you are en route to Hell.

    This country has denied me opportunities because of what the meningitis did to me, so I have every right to burn the American flag.

Both are under the eyes of Jesus Christ our Lord.It doesn’t matter where you go in life,you be true to yourself and others and respect those who respect you as they respect the lives of those that they are countryman with and respect the one’s that have sacrificed their lives for them,but you don’t understand that and don’t care because you are a spoiled brat that his parents raised him with not earning everything and gave it to him.You don’t probably know the value of working for what you have in life and the blood a sweet it takes to be proud of having it,do you.I have a very intelligent mind and full of common sense.You can’t live one without the other,all though some think it is possible,but the are fools.I’m done with you because the foolish thing to do is talk to a mind that is unable to grasp onto knowledge and common sense and be aware of life and be mature.Good Bye.

    +Halver Rey Jr. Proverbs 15:1.

    Wrong again. I have worked for what little I have. I now have a degree in Psychology and getting a degree in Education. You’re judgmental. Keep doing what you’re doing and you will burn like an American flag in Sheol.

    I’ll bet you don’t even know what that is.

    I can say what I want to you. As a Christian, you are COMMANDED to reply gently.

    As far as working goes, tell me how much the landowner paid the workers who worked one hour?

    Don’t brag.

    I have worked hard all my life, too. You have no right to judge me. I can judge you because you judged me first. Plus, I have had to face discrimination my entire life.

    You would not survive what I have had to survive. You are weak-minded and spoiled.

    As far as those who were in the military, I only respect those who fought in World War II and Korea-because they saved my life and because they are humble about their service to this country.

    You brag about it. You are less than nothing.

    | have no respect for you because you murdered and possibly raped while in uniform.

    Pay attention to the verbiage, son. I wrote POSSIBLY. I didn’t say you DID. American soldiers are known to rape.

    Haditha-’nuff said.

    You will all run for your lives once 2 Peter 3:4 comes to pass. It fact it is YOU who are the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Christians are not to judge-yet, that’s all you have done during the course of this interaction.
    You are the one who lacks common sense. What did the Good Samaritan do? Not what you would do.

    The more I show you, the angrier you become, and the more power I have over your mind. You are a lamb being led to the slaughterhouse-and I just want to make a few dollars after Trump’s done with your bankruptcy.

    The only way to stop flag burning is to treat ALL Americans EQUALLY, but you refuse to do that. I guess we’ll just have to keep burning flags.

    Read Texas v. Johnson and just let it go. You lack the intellect to keep up with any liberal, so don’t start the gunfight, Dave Tutt. I’m Wild Bill Hickok-and I will send your ass down to Hell. You’re a conservative, so I know you lack the ability to think abstractly-if at all. What I wrote is merely historical comparison.

    Why not? Given your responses, that’s likely where you’ll end up-unless you acquire some compassion for children with developmental disabilities.

    Don’t try it. Post that response and you won’t like your eternal home thirty years from now. You may live a long life and forget this exchange, but Christ won’t. I admit that I struggle with my beliefs. I’m Thomas, but you are the Sanhedrin-so don’t try it with me.

    You see, Jesus Christ is not the problem. You don’t follow Jesus and you have no intention of doing so. Like I stated earlier, just keep doing what you’re doing.

    It’s all going to change after 2 Peter 3:4.

    Now, where did I put that lighter? Ah! There it is!

    I might be starting out who the real Christians are and who are the fakes, as there is a verse about those who claim they are Jews, yet are not.

Jesus Was The Bartender!

 

 

Will someone explain to me why some of these wacky Christian sects are so vehemently oppose to alcohol consumption?

I mean, it’s one thing to have a shot of Jack, but the problem is that you’re not supposed to drink the entire fucking bottle-which I did once….don’t do that, because the outcome is a nightmare.

All the Bible tells you is to not drink to excess.  The only problem is that there are people out there who don’t seem to know their limits:

Leviticus 10:9

“Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:”

Okay, so you’re not supposed to show up to church drunk.  I get it.  However, tell me what Christ did when He performed His first miracle?  He was the bartender at a party!
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+2:1-11&version=NIV

So, I could never understand these people who opposed alcohol consumption.
Colorado still has Sunday laws in effect, which drain the state economy and are, frankly, stupid.

If you are reading this article and you object to booze, why?  One might understand if alcoholism runs in your particular family; that makes sense.  However, who are you to tell someone else what they should consume?

http://biblehub.com/romans/14-14.htm

As for myself, I no longer find the satisfaction in alcohol that I once did.  I drank to keep myself from beating people to death because I waa a fun drunk.  I laughed at everything.

I even flirted with a woman whom, in mystate, was the bride emerging from the wedding reception.

How the hell was I was suppose to know?  She had dark skin and long hair.  Put the two together and booooiiiiiinnnnnggggg!

Of course, I had had at least 10-12 drinks in me within the span of two to three hours, but I couldn’t resist.

You know, even if she’s divorced today, I’ll bet she remembers me from twenty years ago.  She never knew my name, but just what I did and in the state which I was in: GONE!

The funny thing now is that I can barely finish one beer before I have to sit down.  I simply can’t drink like I used to-nor do I want to.  I simply have no reason to do that anymore, as the stresses I face now aren’t nearly as bad as the ones I faced ten to fifteen years ago.

However, the point is that religious people need to get over their problem with regard to alcohol, because their Savior was the manufacturer and distributor-and I don’t think theer was a legal age back then…yet another idea which needs to go.

Cigarettes kill, and you can get those at eighteen.  Beer doesn’t kill, but you have to wait until you’re 21.

Jesus Can Change Everything

Not from my experiences. I was born and raised a Christian. I was bullied in Christian schools up to the point of having suicidal thoughts and expressing suicidal behavior

Christians have judged me my entire life-and remember Acts 1:8-that you are His witnesses. All God has ever given me is nothing but misery-starting with the meningitis He so graciously gave me in January of 1971. God has broken faith with me regarding Matthew 21:22 and 1 Corinthians 7:9. I am now Proverbs 18:19, and I would love to know why Christian women are so prejudicial and greedy-again, that’s my experience.

 

My own pastor didn’t want to talk to me about my suicidal thoughts in 1983. Guess who gave me five minutes of his time in 1997 to discuss the subject:

 

GENE SIMMONS OF KISS.

 

I would sell my soul for a wife right now.

Regarding 1 Corinthians 7:9, I wanted to get married at 18. I’m 47.

Abraham wasn’t 100 and Sarah definitely wasn’t 90. The birth alone would shatter a 90-year-old woman’s pelvis. She was probably more like 45.

The Bible tells you not to put your faith in wealth because it’s uncertain… Yet, Christian women are the greediest and most prejudicial women on the planet.

There’s a strange irony to all of this. The Father cannot send me to Hell because I KNOW Christ rose from the dead. I know this because I know the mechanics of crucifixion and I know what happened to Roman guards who fell asleep at their posts: they were burned where they slept.

 

Amen.

God has cheated me (Hebrews 11:39). Don’t worry. I always win in the end. Not even the Lord Himself can cheat me and expect to get away
with it. And before you reply, heed Matthew 7:1-2, Luke 6:37. I’ve also acknowledged Jesus as the Christ on this public forum (Matthew 10:32 and Luke 12:8), so the Father will pay me all He owes to me.

I have already won.
