Vegetarianism: Telling people we can’t eat meat a doctrine of demons?

Paul clearly says in 1 Timothy 4:

1 But the Spirit says expressly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron, 3 forbidding marriage and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with thanksgiving. 5 For it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer.

Peter Helland & Mario Sims: Slave/Master Relationship — Many today don’t want to obey Christ | Many then actually were slaves

Sobering!

Peter Helland and Pastor Mario Sims discuss doulos, the Greek word for “slave”. They discuss why Mario named his church Doulos Chapel. And they discuss the reality that Jesus, Himself, took on the form of a slave and became obedient unto death, even death on the cross. And then they discuss the Slave/Master relationship, whether this relationship is a sinful and forbidden relationship in the Scriptures as most Americans believe it is or whether it is a relationship that God permits under certain circumstances. They look into 1 Timothy, chapter 6, the first few verses, which summarizes the New Testament teaching on the Master/Servant relationship. The purpose of the show is to reveal how drastically wrong our culture is regarding this extremely important Doctrine.

Debate: Atheist Claims Jesus is a Hoax – Slippery Philosopher David Skrbina v. Factual Theologian Peter Williamson

MY NOTES – Including transcriptions:

21:35 Skrbina disbelieves the gospel accounts of Jesus and doubts Jesus even existed: “I think he did exist. I think he was a mortal man. I’m not totally sure. I’m kind of on the fence on this one. But for the sake of this debate, let’s say he existed. …”

28:16 Skrbina claims many secular authors would have written about Jesus from Palestine in the 1st century, 2000 years ago.

Wiliamson: We only have one secular author’s work from Palestine on any subject, Josephus, who does write about Jesus: Continue reading “Debate: Atheist Claims Jesus is a Hoax – Slippery Philosopher David Skrbina v. Factual Theologian Peter Williamson”

Speaking in tongues

Medical research

[…]

Neuroimaging of brain activity during glossolalia does not show activity in the language areas of the brain.[67][68]

A study done by the American Journal of Human Biology found that speaking in tongues was associated with both a reduction in circulatory cortisol, and enhancements in alpha-amylase enzyme activity – two common biomarkers of stress reduction that can be measured in saliva.[73] 

Several sociological studies report various social benefits to engaging in Pentecostal glossolalia,[74][75] such as an increase in self-confidence.[75] Continue reading “[Wikipedia] ‘Speaking in tongues’: Studies show no activity in brain’s language areas — stress reduction & increase in self-confidence”

One of Ron Wyatt’s favorite subjects was ‘how the pyramids were built’. He was especially interested because he knew Imhotep, or Joseph, son of Jacob (Israel) was the builder of the first pyramid. His discovery of how these massive monuments were made was not something he set out of learn. It was an encounter at the tomb of Onias that led him to an amazing discovery.

Ron Wyatt experienced constant rejection by the scientific and scholarly world regarding the discoveries. He understood why and he knew it would not change or get any easier. That is why he took the evidences to the people. He believed the evidences were so straight forward that honest hearted people could recognize facts and truth. He also recognized that the battle would intensify as time went on.

‘Hebrew Roots’ Busted! Christianity is Not ‘Judaism Plus Jesus’ — “By calling this covenant ‘new’ he has made the first one obsolete” (Heb. 8:13)

“But now we have been *discharged from the law*, having died to that in which we were held; so that *we serve in newness of the spirit*, and not in oldness of the letter” (Rom. 7:6).

“If you are LED BY THE SPIRIT, you are not under the law” (Galatians 5:18).

The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God” (Hebrews 7:18-19).

“By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete…” (Hebrews 8:13).

The KJV incorrectly uses the pagan word “Easter” for ‘pascha’ in Acts 12:4

KJV-onlyism exposed

The KJV translated this Greek word, ‘pasha’ correctly as ‘passover’ 28 of the 29 times, making this big mistake of translating it as ‘Easter’ in Acts 12:4 only:

Acts 12:4 Interlinear

3957. pascha

Englishman’s Concordance: πάσχα (pascha) — 29 Occurrences

Every translation is ‘Passover’ or ‘passover’ except the KJV’s ‘Easter’ in Acts 12:4, highlighted: Continue reading “The KJV incorrectly uses the pagan word “Easter” for ‘pascha’ in Acts 12:4″

Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible — James intentionally altered texts

Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible

by [Nick Page]

Amidst all the literary luvvies gushing over the quality of the prose and the RADA trained voices reading it in Radio 4 speak a few salient facts aren’t getting much attention. So here are ten things you ought to know about the KJV. They are taken from God’s Dangerous Book – a book on the history of the Bible…. But here’s the shorter version:

Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible

1. It was widely ignored on publication. Far from being an instant classic, The King James, or Authorised Version, was widely ignored on first publication  for one very good reason: hardly anyone wanted it in the first place.

2. It was never intended as a means of giving the Bible to the people: it was intended as a way of stopping them using the Bible they already had.
 The people already had a great English translation  – the Geneva version. James I hated that because he thought its footnotes were seditious. So he specifically commanded that the new version should be done without footnotes.

3.  It was a revision not a new translation. James ordered that it be based on the text of the Bishops’ Bible of 1568. James instructed that the new version was to be ‘as little altered as the truth of the original [i.e. the Bishop’s Bible] will permit’.

4. It was a politically motivated translation. James also instructed that ‘the old ecclesiastical words to be kept, viz. the word Church not to be translated Congregation.’ James insisted that ekklesia be translated as church and that the word ‘bishop’ be used instead of ‘elder’. So you get verses like Acts 1.20, where the Geneva Bible has Continue reading “Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible — James intentionally altered texts”

MARK FARNER: I’m Your Captain (Closer To Home – 1970) 2011 LiVE

From: Songfacts — Mark Farner (ex-Grand Funk)

Songfacts: How did you come up with that song? It seems so unusual – so long and it changes gears in the middle.

Farner: Initially the song came to me after I said my prayers one night and I put a P.S. on the end of my prayers. I asked God to give me a song that would touch the hearts of people that the Creator wanted to get to. I got up at 3 o’clock in the morning – I’m always getting up at different times of the night and writing things down. A lot of them are not songs but this happened to be one.

I got up and I wrote it, and as I’m writing it, I’m between the state of subconscious and conscious. I’ve got one foot in dreamland and my pen is writing these words down. It didn’t make a whole lot of sense. It was kind of weird, I thought, as I was writing it. I didn’t sit there on the edge of the bed and read it over and over, I just wrote it down, and when I got to the end of it, I just folded it over and put it on the nightstand. There it was.

Well, in the morning, I got up, I was drinking my coffee, I was looking at the horses out in the pasture, and I got my feet kicked up. I thought, I’ll grab my flattop here. I had an acoustic George Washburn, a resonant guitar from my kitchen – everybody would grab it when they came here. I started playing. Wow, that’s nice, what the heck is that? Then I made that C chord. I made a mistake. I was going for the G and it was a little short and I hit the C. And I looked down because that chord spoke to me in such a way. I’ve never heard that come out, that inversion of the C. I thought, Wow, that’s a cool chord. Then I thought maybe with those words in the other room, maybe that’s a song, so I grabbed the legal pad and laid it down on the table next to my coffee and I just started strumming. “Everybody…” And it just started coming out. …

Russ Taff: “Oh Buddha” — “You can call yourself a Baptist, Methodist or Charismatic… But IF YOU HATE YOUR BROTHER you won’t be one of The chosen few”

Well, you can call yourself a Baptist and not be born again
A Presbyterian or a Methodist and still die in your sin
You can even be Charismatic shout and dance and jump a pew
But if you hate your brother you won’t be one of The chosen few.

Jesus in Mt. 5:43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, BLESS THOSE WHO CURSE YOU, DO GOOD to those WHO HATE you, and PRAY FOR THOSE WHO MISTREAT YOU and persecute you, 45 THAT YOU MAY BE CHILDREN of your Father who is in heaven.

1 John 3:15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

1 John 4:16 … God is love, and remains in God, and God remains in him. 17 In this, , in the day of judgment, because , in this world. 18 There is ; , because fear has punishment. . 19 We love him, because he first loved us. 20 If a man says, “I love God,” and HATES HIS BROTHER, he is a liar; for he who doesn’t love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 This commandment we have from him, that .

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, HATRED, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies, 21 envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let’s also walk by the Spirit. …

6:7 Don’t be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that will he also reap. 8 For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Russ Taff’s abusive pastor father jealous of his own son’s talent and anointing — Russ’ struggle to be free revealed in the film ‘I Still Believe’

This heavy, honest film just opened up a new level of understanding to me for what many have gone through.

The abuse showed itself in many ways and was devastating to his mother too, who then also abused Russ and his brothers. But this statement of how Russ’ own pastor father was jealous of Russ’ talent when the Holy Spirit filled him, that’s just sick beyond what I had thought possible.

So I’m doing this post on Russ’ dad giving him the silent treatment because he was jealous of his own son.

Russ then lied about his addiction, living a superficial life for decades until he was emotionally healed.

Thankfully, he married the right lady; 30-day rehab worked, and was prayed for by a special man who expressed the heart of our Heavenly Father!

Famous Christian musician Russ Taff speaking about his alcoholic, abusive pastor father’s jealousy of his son, Russ:

“When I started really shining he got jealous. That started a dance between he and I until I left home — that when I would do real well and the Holy Spirit would move he would emotionally punish me, where he wouldn’t even acknowledge me for a couple of days.”
