And somehow JPM finished up today. WTF is going on!
Chapter 2 of the Book of The Prophet Micah
1 Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning's light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it.
2 They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them. They defraud a man of his home, a fellowman of his inheritance.
3 Therefore, the LORD says: "I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity.
I'm going to let you in on a secret. Nothing will happen to them unless people intervene. If you sit back and wait for God to take care of it for you, you will be disappointed.
I seriously hope that you are not schizophrenic, though it sounds like you probably are.
Save the whales....Hong Kong.
i'm sure the elites love moral fiber. they eat it with the soft flesh of learned condition responses that allow them to take advantage of fools...
hey, bible quoters...
don't just sit there in a love trance... buy a fucking rifle.
Disillusioned 29 year old American with AK reporting as ordered!
An ability to quote the Bible is by no means incompatible with the ability to own, and know how to use, a rifle! We must each reason and act as individuals. Biblical quotes like the one in question have to do more with overall outcomes. Peace.
Of the content, two words "No worries!" are attributable to the poster himself. The rest were quotes. From two words you discern schizophrenia? LOL! Perhaps it is you who needs to take a look at just why such a post was capable of igniting such an emotional reaction in yourself :). Just what is it you're so afraid of?
Well, for me, I tend to get a little anxious around people who believe in talking snakes, invisible men, ritualized proxy cannibalism, you know, crazy shit like that.
Although if you exclude the crazy shit, there are some decent and enduring truths in the Bible. But you have to pick the raisins out of the cookie to get to them, as it were.
You may find Thomas Jefferson's work in this area of interest:
Emotional? I was pretty dead pan.
"Call on God, but row away from the rocks."
Perhaps exorcising the Fraudclosure Beasts may be an effective tool...
The christian god sold his son to pay for the debt(sin) of humans, if religious people followd his cue they would sell their children in slavery to pay for the social benefits of the democrats and have nots. Ha try beating this logic u religious morons !
The morale, if you try learning economy from the bible you go broke real fast
1 Corinthians 1:27
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Hey JGus -
That was interesting! You junkeramers - please get a grip and take the morality where you find it. Don't discourage someone who is looking for justice.
Really... that's just the same attitude as the banksters have: "I'm right and the -*&^% with the rest of you!"
Bad ZHers (or at least, thoughtless).
I junked him because he is waiting for his imaginary friend to come and fix things for him (or to destroy the world). That's not the way we get things done in the real world!
We could still fix this mess, if people put down their holy fairy tales and started emailing their state representatives to secede from the cesspool.
You, sir, are hugely unworthy of your magnificent avatar. Go be atheist all you want, but calling others names only weakens your position.
It's very possible that you have no clue as to what the "Real World" actually is.
So please, continue to rant, and help me futher make my point.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Damn straight. The fact that there are twenty junks for JGus at the time of my posting is testament to the fact that people are just getting ridiculously irrational. And scared to death of divergent thinking.
Bad ZH'rs. Indeed.
Just stunning. All day long they complain about all of the crap going on around them and when the truth is presented these bozos got no other response then to junk you.
The bold print says the punishment of the elite will be transgenerational.
I find it curious you were junked 11 times. All these people who seek the truth don't recognize it when they see it. They reject it out of hand.
The rational thing would be to acknowledge their ignorance and ignore it, taking an agnostic stand. But no, knee jerk junks.
A-Men, If you belive there is no god, what is there to live for?
-Life, enjoy it.
Among a million other reasons.
Ha!!! Fantastic edit... but I believe your original post was the ever Christian-like "FN Moron"... was it not? WWJD Cdad?
Yes, live life looking out for your own interests......this is why we are in shit debacle we are in.
As opposed to living life in the interests of an invisible sky daddy who created and controls everything and yet somehow isn't responsible for the fucked up parts of his creation, and who also intentionally conveys what his interests are in arcane, obscure, often confusing ways so as to separate out those who are worthy of one day magically transforming into eternal praise-singing automatons from those who will suffer never-ending excruciating torture for all eternity. Yes, that is much better.
Hey, you got a problem with the flying spaghetti monster?
Me and you, buddy -- outside, now!
Whoa, hold up. I fully acknowledge the power of the Noodly Appendage. But He is backed up by FACTS. Have you seen the charts on global average temperature versus number of pirates? I rest my case.
To understand why the world has suffering, pain, and other degenerate parts, you must first understand perfection. "My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts", says the LORD.
Consider it growing pains........... we are in this life as a test. Sin causes death, but the Word created life, physically and spiritually, if you so choose.......
Wouldn't the world be a better place is people simply followed the ten commandments?
Don't we want the world to be a better place?
The PTB want no God but the state.
ZH'ers are not nearly as unprogrammed as they think.
Else, why all the hate?
While I get the spirit of your question, I must answer with this: "We" aren't actually under the 10 commandments any longer. Jesus died to create a new, more perfect law: "God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;" (Hebrews 1:1-2), and this "Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron? For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law." (Hebrews 7:11-12)
Not only that, but the 10 commandments were only given to the Jewish people. The Gentiles were never included in the old law.
This is not to say that the 10 commandments are not something to ignore, since they were improved upon in the New Testament (which we are all under). Having said this, I will agree with the spirit of your message.
"Love God with all your heart, all your strength, and all your mind"
"Love neighbor as self"
Pretty much sums up the Law that Christ lived by and expected the faithful to keep.
It's taken 15 years of doing things my own way for me to realize that what you give is what you receive. What you take is what eventually takes you. On a long enough timeline, we all die - no one is perfect - because "cursed is the ground for your sake" said the LORD after man decided to do things his own way.
If everyone had it easy, we would kill ourselves off. War is always declared by those who live exalted lives. Remove predators in nature and the prey overbreed and oveconsume until they overshoot........ and COLLAPSE.
The hidden message in the bible is that there is a way of peace on earth (the Ten Commandments, and their summary "Love God and Love Neighbor as Self" are the beginning). We are given time to experience our own self-inflicted misery. Those "fucked up parts" are man made, and man's thoughts are futile. Look at history - no system of government has ever created peace, enduring happiness and abundance, and wisdom. Entropy at its finest. The theory (religion) of evolution is man's attempt to ignore the facts of natural decay whilst removing the consequences of sin - death.
Man must experience this in order fully understand God. That is the point of free will - we can't understand One higher if we don't even understand the futility of our own way. You can't learn unless you're first humbled.
No one can understand this unless they understand the way of enduring peace. The bible is a coded book, only to be fully understood with the Spirit, which only comes to the humble who truly seek it out.
Peace, my fellow ZH'ers. :D
Replace "invisible sky daddy" in your previous statement with "Lloyd Blankfein" - and you will get my point completely:)
Touche! It does fit nicely, huh?
does this battle of the seen vs. the unseen (unresolved after millennia) illuminate the actual post on the possible turning of the tide in the mortgage fraud?
"invisible sky daddy"
"invisible sky daddy"
great phrase, consider it "borrowed" :)
It's fun. There's a lot to do. There's a lot to learn. I like playing sports. My college football team is pretty good most years. My wife is pretty hot. I have two awesome kids. My daughter took off her training wheels a few weeks ago. The weather has been awesome. The kids are fired up about Halloween. World Series starts tomorrow. My parents are still in great health. I have a cool group of friends. I have a pretty good job. Pandora radio is kick ass. I haven't worn a tie in years, minus a funeral that I went to for my 94 year old grandmother... it was more of celebration than a funeral.
I don't believe in fairy tales, the easter bunny, Santa Clause or any other silly religion. If there is a god, he certainly didn't write the Torah or the new testament or the Koran... that is all just mediocre literature, at best.
You're the perfect example of someone waiting to take the fall. Beware of idols.
Curious... what in my list of things that I appreciate about life would seem like idolatry? My children? My wife? A good job that I work pretty hard at? My alma matter's pretty good football team? And do we know each other? Isn't there some verse about "judge not lest thee be judged?"... While I certainly know a whole lot more about the history of Christianity than most Christians, I don't claim to know all scripture and verse... help me out... you seem to know your stuff.
Funny thing is, most of what the world calls "Christianity" came out of Rome and Babylon - the symbols, holy days, even the attire of the Pope has roots in the first civilization after the flood. If you don't believe the flood happened, call it the first civilization that the history books recorded. :)
