Hey, ya’ll come on down to North Carolina! We’s open-minded folks and just loves a good cookout…
A Baptist Church near Asheville, N.C., is hosting a “Halloween book burning” to purge the area of “Satan’s” works, which include all non-King James versions of the Bible, popular books by many religious authors and even country music.
The website for the Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton, N.C., says there are “scriptural bases” for the book burning. The site quotes Acts 19:18-20: “And many that believed, came and confessed and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts, brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.”
Church leaders deem Good News for Modern Man, the Evidence Bible, the New International Version Bible, the Green Bible and the Message Bible, as well as at least seven other versions of the Bible as “Satan’s Bibles,” according to the website. Attendees will also set fire to “Satan’s popular books” such as the work of “heretics” including the Pope, Mother Teresa, Billy Graham and Rick Warren.
“I believe the King James version is God’s preserved, inspired, inerrant and infallible word of God,” Pastor Marc Grizzard told a local news station of his 14-member parish
I just finished with a lady whose tales of medical woes are frightening.
What has been done to her husband is nothing less than sheer neglect and the result is Frankenstonian. They trusted the system, assuming that medicine is science. They allowed their physicians to walk them down a path to total ruin, complaining the whole time that something was dramatically wrong.
No one listened.
Those who didn’t listen don’t have to live with the consequences.
I’m so happy that our self-serving, barbaric, monopolistic system of
witchcraft medicine is going to be fixed by an even more outlandish and hellish system that is guaranteed to ruin the country and millions of people’s lives through national healthcare.
I’ll bet you think I’m upset…
Swine flu is obviously the means God is using to destroy the world.
Stepped off the airplane yesterday in Recife and I threw my hands up in the air! There stood seven people, all in surgical masks; I thought we were being held up. All through the airport people had on masks. An announcement on the intercom before we got off the plane sternly ordered us “present ourselves” to a flight attendant if we had a fever over 38 degrees (celsius), were coughing or had a headache so that the Brazilian health authorities “could take proper action.”
We were forced to sign a document with “full details where the Brazilian health officials can located you” in the event a catastrophic pandemic erupted. Seriously.
Upon arrival in Fortaleza, before we could leave the baggage claim, we had to give the full information to the officials again. When I blithely said I didn’t know the hotel’s phone number, they said, “look it up.” I wasn’t allowed to leave until I did. And, again, everyone was walking around in surgical masks.
The nightly news spent almost 10 minutes out of a 30 minute broadcast on it. “This just in” interruptions to normal programming to give the latest statistics of the disease’s progression occured all day on the radio.
So, it must really be bad here, huh?
Population – 225 million; swine flu – 22 cases.
Yep! This is some kinda serious malady.
I guess I’m a bit dense.
I didn’t even know there had recently been a Miss USA pageant, I didn’t know that Miss North Carolina won, I didn’t know that she is from Wilmington and I didn’t know about all the hoopla surrounding Miss California’s answer to a question during the competition.
Well, maybe I didn’t care.
And still don’t…
xxxxxxxxxxxx…except the hoopla peaked my curiosity.
So I went reading.
Now I’m angry.
All right/wrong arguments aside, the girl is being slammed because she expressed her opinion in a polite, non-offensive manner and now she’s tagged as a “gay-hater?”
She was set up by a judge, for goodness sakes!
Why isn’t Mr. Judge being condemned as a “gay-baiter?”
I fear for our country…
I kid you not! Looky here.
Maybe we need a bailout for churches…
Just like the title says, I don’t do no stinking New Year’s resolutions.
I used to attempt to do them.
I always failed.
I watched a fascinating movie last night called “The Illusionist.” I highly recommend it. And, why, might you ask, am I throwing this in while talking about resolutions? Because it illustrates my position quite nicely.
In the movie, reality and illusion were so confused that it brought about a change in political power. The illusion was thought to be real, when all it did was allow the protagonists to achieve their goals. Everyone else was left with an illusion, and didn’t even know that they’d been snookered.
So it is with New Year’s resolutions. I’ll bet you a box of doughnut holes that anyone who has made a resolution that was to start today will fail. Anyone. You have designed it to fail before even starting; lose weight, get out of debt, change job, improve marriage, study harder, it doesn’t matter. By putting it off till the first of the year you have convinced yourself that it is so lofty, so unattainable, so… out of the ordinary, that you cannot accomplish it.
Thus, you fail.
Can you achieve it. Of course! But not via a “New Year’s Resolution.”
Happy New Year! 🙂
Spam is what it is…
…but it can still grab your attention at times.
I just received this:
I wonder what the pay is?
