Re: Podcast Discussion: Sexual Comparisons to the Kingdom Re

I found this link dating back to 2007 http://www.abc.net.au/news/2007-11-20/turnbull-pumps-10m-into-rainmaking-gamble/731004 but nothing much else. The current political environment is one in which a number of significant environmental initiatives, such as the carbon price scheme introduced by the ...

Re: Podcast Discussion: Sexual Comparisons to the Kingdom Re

Australia has an on going (since 2012) weather modification and research grant at 10M AUD/yr. In the united states while this research is not illegal at either the state or federal level, attempting to get funding for this, OR to use grants for this research will/has resulted in quite stern letters,...

Re: Podcast Discussion: Sexual Comparisons to the Kingdom Re

[quote="Bull of the Woods" I have NO idea how on earth you would tie weather research and "the true nature of sexuality" together. I am not an expert on the history of the church. Mostly I am selfishly more impacted by what I have seen in my lifetime. That the "church" ...

Re: Podcast Discussion: Sexual Comparisons to the Kingdom Re

This is so huge. Everything about this podcast is huge. The single most destructive thing the church has done is make all sex bad, all sexuality bad, all talk about sex bad, anything using sexual language as bad. The guilt laid on me related to sex and anything relating to sex is the absolute bigges...

Re: pbs independent lens on evangelical hate speech in afric

Of course what i say is an attack on christianity. I hate the church. They ruined my life. It is my life mission to turn the whole world against the church so that the world will rise up and destroy it. I was paul, but now i am saul. No one can know God and be a christian... all christians are satan...

Re: pbs independent lens on evangelical hate speech in afric

No not all evangelicals or pentacostals are like that but the issue is really that whether in former decades it was nigeria or kenya, now uganda. american english speakers show up there and people just let them do what ever they want. You guys are right but thats the problem. These pastors and missi...

Re: pbs independent lens on evangelical hate speech in afric

I think you should see the episode first. It's honestly shocking, anyone with a heart can plainly see just how manipulative, selfish, and extremist these people are. The episode largely followed "international house of prayer" people, but branched off into other conservative church denomin...

pbs independent lens on evangelical hate speech in africa

Everyone needs to see what american evengelicals are doing in africa. This weeks pbs Independentlens exposes what is basically hate speech and satanic agenda. They are saying things like: homosexuals are responsible for the nazis.... they should be hangend, put to death.... and extend this to all si...

Re: Leaving The Church

Let no one be deceived this man is a false prophet for sure! I believe that his veiws are actually the ones characteristic of a "satanic revelation." God is not as this man claims. I'll admit it. I'm uncomfortable with these sorts of comments. And not being a Christian I can't say if Rans...

Re: Leaving The Church

The more I critically examine the Ameri-euro centric End times philosophy(and that is what it is, it's not a prophecy but a dearly beloved wishful thinking on the part of christians), the more I am convinced it is entirely false. I have studied the origin of religion, in the proto gospels(of Horus, ...

Re: Submission

I cant really justify any of Paul's morality writings. It's dangerous to apply the morality of a long gone evil empire to today. Paul spoke to the roman/greek world, A world that, lets face it, would be revolting in every single way to us were we to go back and time and visit it(this is the place wh...

Re: What do you think of tithing?

Just my two cents. I've been away and just am now reading this thread which is about something that I've had a problem with for some time. I totally see tithing as Old Testament. I have to admit - I once convinced myself in the truth of prosperity message, but I never felt good about it. I am in to...

Re: Understanding the emotional effects of trauma

I strongly disagree with the idea that trauma is permanent. It can be, if you want it to be(In which case, the biopathic diseases you get from that is on your own head!). I have had great success with Orgone therapy, and later NeoRechian techniques like the Radix institute's stuff. I would recommend...

Re: What do you think of tithing?

This is all very interesting and I'll throw my two cents in. ;) As someone with not a lot of money, I always used to feel like I was sinning by not being able to tithe. It was made very clear whether in the CRC, or any other church i attended especially the ELCA that while we "understand" ...

Re: Contentment

Jeff, i agree with you. I have been content in hunger, and in thirst, and in near homelessness. I have been content with nothing... thats easy! I really struggle being content with things and food and a roof and clothing. Paul is right, we should learn contentment in all things, but i find it so muc...
